Juan Williams

The news today has been that NPR journalist Juan Williams was fired for saying that he felt afraid at the airport when he saw Muslims dressed in their Muslim clothing.

How about last year when a bunch of Muslim men started praying at the airport gate in Arabic and then all started chanting, "Allah Akbar," before they went to get on the plane? When some folks reported them and then refused to get on the plane with them...the Muslims filed a law suit against the airlines and others.

Yes friends...our way of life is under attack. Not by Muslims who truly have left their backward countries and are here to make a better life and become part of OUR culture....but by the ones who want to bring their backward way of life to America....AND KEEP IT... AND EVEN MAKE IT SPREAD!

I had heard Dobson talking this week and he gave a Winston Churchill quote on Islam from 1899;

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

Wow! sure seems Winston had Islam figured out 110 years ago. How could we have digressed so far in our ability to call a spade, "a spade"?

Can you imagine what NPR would have said to Winston had he been one of their reporters and said the quote above?....I wonder what they may have said....."WINSTON CHURCHILL...I'M APPALLED AT YOUR HATE SPEECH! YOU ARE FIRED FROM YOUR RADIO AND TV SHOW! I HOPE YOU NEVER HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE AS YOU WILL BE NO GOOD FOR ANYBODY WHEN IT COMES TO BUILDING PEACE BRIDGES!"

Castro Speaks

The ex-President of Cuba has some serious words for humanity today...and here is the headline;

Iran war would end humanity: Castro

Former Cuban President Fidel Catsro says that any military action against Iran will trigger a nuclear war that will put an end to humanity.

"Today there is imminent risk of war with the use of that kind of weapon and I don't harbor the least doubt that an attack by the United States and Israel against the Islamic Republic of Iran would inevitably evolve towards a global nuclear conflict," Castro said in a video address released on the Cubadebate website on Thursday. "The use of nuclear weapons in a new war would mean the end of humanity," he stated in the four-minute video.

Castro then goes on to say something really stupid;

The former Cuban leader also called on world powers to eliminate all nuclear weapons.

"Let us have the courage to proclaim that all nuclear or conventional weapons, everything that is used to make war, must disappear," Castro said.

And of course, Israel has to be mentioned for this prophetic article to be complete;

Israel, which is the only possessor of nuclear arms in the Middle East, has repeatedly voiced its determination to end Iran's nuclear program, even through military means.

Unlike Israel, Iran is a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has repeatedly said that its nuclear program is peaceful.

See it here;

Hey Fidel, asking the world to have the courage to give up all their weapons of war?...sounds like you just entered the Twilight Zone my friend. The only people who will give up their guns are the daisy sniffers and Kum-ba-yah singers. And once that happens the people who want to control this Satanic world and force conversion to Islam...will be the only one's with guns and bombs. Then they will walk into your campfire sing-along and use their machetes to destroy your pretty daisies....and maybe behead you anyway...just because they can.

Of course as followers of Christ, we know that a day is coming when the weapons of war will be traded in for farm equipment. That will be the same day that the lion lays down with the lamb and the child will play with the poisonous snake....but that ain't gonna happen til Jesus Christ returns to sit on David's throne and rules the Millennium.

Sorry Fidel...if you had read your Bible instead of forcing Socialism, military misery and poverty onto the millions of Cubans whose government you would know this.

Obama and Palestine

As we have repeatedly said, we believe the USA is walking along a very precarious cliff. The Bible says that those who would divide Jerusalem will be, "...torn to pieces." (Zechariah)

Last week we posted an article stating that the PLO desired to have a map of the desired Palestinian state....a map MADE BY THE USA showing the division of the Holy Land.

Yesterday in the Wall Street Journal, John Bolton wrote yet another article concerning Israel, titled;
Obama and the Coming Palestinian State

Direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, for 21 months the centerpiece of Obama administration Middle East policy, are moving inevitably toward collapse. The talks may limp past our Nov. 2 election, but they are doomed to fail.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) fully understands that the talks—and the "two state solution"—will fail. It needs a plan B. Accordingly, several ideas are circulating to skip bothersome negotiations with Israel and move immediately to Palestinian "statehood."


This time is different. Once past Nov. 2 and faced with the impending and embarrassing collapse of direct talks, President Obama may well be moved to punish Israel or at least fashion a teachable moment out of his diplomatic failure.

The Obama administration has a jaundiced view of Israel, but actual U.S. recognition of "Palestine" seems a remote prospect in the near term. The domestic political firestorm for the president—already likely to be badly wounded in midterm elections and deeply concerned about his own prospects in two years—would simply be too much.

Mr. Obama has unmistakably left open the possibility of defaulting to the 1967 borders. In his September 2009 speech at the U.N., for example, he supported a Palestinian state "with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967."

No one should underestimate the gravity of this threat to Israel's position, although Mr. Obama could eliminate it at a stroke if he chooses to speak out. We will soon see how hostile to Israel he is prepared to be.

See it here;

Oh my goodness! Did you catch Mr. Bolton's phrases, "...punish Israel", "...jaundiced view of Israel," "....occupation that began in 1967," "...hostile to Israel he is prepared to be."?

Again, let me count the ways that America could be torn to pieces if we continue going down this path of pressuring Israel to give up Jerusalem or divide it and give it to Israel's enemies; financial collapse, slave to lender, terrorist attacks, earthquake, social unrest, civil war, massive power outage due to Electro-Magnetic-Pulse bomb (EMP), power outage due to massive solar storm, drought, food shortages, and/or a combination of any of these.

Some will say to themselves, "But Dennis...really...we are America...God loves us! He made us the greatest, most powerful country in the world! He will never turn His back on us!"

Is it becoming increasingly clear to all that it is America who is turning our back on God? How long can we expect to last if God withdraws His blessing and protection and leaves us to fend for ourselves on this Satanic planet?

End of Earth Postponed

We have talked about all the chatter about how the ancient Mayan calendar is supposed to end in 2012...which has ushered in all sorts of theories on what may happen in 2012.

For the record, we have blogged in the past that according to the Bible there is no way the earth can end in 2012. According to the Bible the last 7 years before the end of the age will commence when the Antichrist signs a peace agreement with Israel and it's Arab enemies. According to the Bible that won't happen until AFTER the rapture. just using reasonable deduction we can conclude that since the rapture hasn't happened...the Antichrist can't be revealed. And since the Antichrist hasn't been revealed he can't begin to sign a peace even if the rapture happened tomorrow, the earth would still have 7+ years to exist before the end of the age.

In conclusion, I know the earth will not end in 2012. However, the rapture of the church could happen any day now. And believe will NOT want to miss the rapture.

With all that being said, a faithful reader send me this article today;

End of the Earth Postponed

It's a good news/bad news situation for believers in the 2012 Mayan apocalypse. The good news is that the Mayan "Long Count" calendar may not end on Dec. 21, 2012 (and, by extension, the world may not end along with it). The bad news for prophecy believers? If the calendar doesn't end in December 2012, no one knows when it actually will - or if it has already.

A new critique, published as a chapter in the new textbook "Calendars and Years II: Astronomy and Time in the Ancient and Medieval World" (Oxbow Books, 2010), argues that the accepted conversions of dates from Mayan to the modern calendar may be off by as much as 50 or 100 years. That would throw the supposed and overhyped 2012 apocalypse off by decades and cast into doubt the dates of historical Mayan events. (The doomsday worries are based on the fact that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012, much as our year ends on Dec. 31.)

See it here;

What I find incredibly interesting is that the world news if filled with articles that talk about the end of the earth, Armageddon, collapse of civilization, prophecy, doomsday, etc...

I believe it's possible that all this talk is being used by God to get those folks whose names are written in The Book to turn to God before it's too late...BUT....I also believe that Satan is using all this talk to get people to understand that they need a savior to come and give them answers and save them from global warming. And when the Antichrist comes riding on a white horse pretending to be that savior...they will welcome him with ticker tape parades....just as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago.

Hat tip to Brent K.

P.S. If you are reading this blog and truly don't know how you can be included in the rapture, please leave a comment on this post and we can make sure the Holy Spirit stamps your ticket to fly.

Where France Goes

A while back we started talking about all the financial problems Greece was having. But as the world dug deeper into the Grecian problems we started to see that other country's balance sheets were very similar...and we wondered aloud if the same problems would soon start happening in Spain, France, UK....and ultimately the USA.

We know France is now engulfed in riots. Why? Because the government asked them to work until age 62 instead of 60...and that's on top of French workers only having a 35 hour work week and getting 6 weeks paid vacation.

So, much of the rest of the Western world may be looking at France as crazy for breaking out in riots over such a little thing. "Hey!! dudes are out of money and been living a lifestyle you can't work a little longer."

But is that same behavior soon coming to America? When you take away an will make some people VERY unhappy.

Americans arriving in Paris these days will notice that France's planes, trains and automobiles are all being slowed or stopped by nationwide protests over President Nicolas Sarkozy's proposal to raise the retirement age by . . . all of two years. Protesters are blockading refineries, truckers clog the roads, and yesterday air-traffic controllers walked off the job. Hundreds of schools around the country are closed, leaving students free to declare their solidarity with pensioners.

The larger issue is whether France and other Western nations will grapple with their entitlement obligations before it's too late, or sink under their weight, dragged down by intransigent government-employee unions.

Sound familiar, Californians?

The obvious lesson for America is to avoid the mistake of imposing such unaffordable entitlements in the first place. Ronald Reagan helped the U.S. dodge that fate in the 1980s, but President Obama has put us back on the road to fiscal perdition. Europe shows what happens when entitlements are too big and expensive to afford—but also too big and entrenched to reform.

See it here;

As we have said many times...what do you think is going to happen when California starts bouncing welfare checks in LA County? Do you believe those folks are going to sit up and say, "You know?'s about time I take responsibility for myself. I'm gonna go find a job and start caring for me and my family!" you believe they will be more prone to start tipping over cars and burning things until the government gives them what they believe they deserve?

And where do you think that government is going to get the money to keep handing out welfare?

Please continue praying for this country. I am getting more and more convinced everyday that no political party will be able to save us. We are simply too far over the cliff.

Foreign Investors Snap Up U.S. Debt

This article may be good news for the short term. (Cue the Debbie Downer horn...wah!-wah!) But it may be bad the long term.

Foreign investors scooped a near record amount of U.S. debt in August and sharply increased their holdings of Treasury bonds, according to the latest Treasury International Capital report.

Since the Fed’s policy meeting in September, investors have grown more confident that further easing, QE2, will be announced at the Fed’s next policy meeting in early November. In turn, the dollar has weakened sharply, particularly against the yen and a number of emerging market currencies.

Analysts say the prospect of QE2 should keep money flowing into US debt and the recent fall in the dollar should boost inflows as some countries intervene in the market and buy the US currency.

“The TIC data in the future will reflect strong foreign demand due to currency intervention,” said George Goncalves, head of interest rate strategy at Nomura Securities. “The question is where those funds are invested and I expect it will favour short-dated bills rather than longer-term maturities.”

See it here;

So why is it good news?...because it show that the rest of the world still wants to put its savings into the U.S.A. which means they have confidence that we are best suited to ride the storm out.

So why is it bad news?....because we are digging a bigger debt pile and owe more and more to foreigners and also those foreigners are buying short dated bills...meaning that we are going to have to refinance them all in the next 2-3 years.

It's quite possible that the Lord is keeping this whole Ponzi scheme from bursting because we are all waiting for the "fullness of the gentiles" to come in. Once that last person whose name is in the Lamb's book says, "Yes"....the Father could send the Son....and the finances of the world could come apart.

Why Israel Needs the Bomb

In today's Wall Street Journal there were another 3-4 articles that had something to do with Israel. It sure seems to be true that she has become a "cup of trembling"...just as Zechariah said.

The most prominent article was titled, WHY ISRAEL NEEDS THE BOMB.

It is very well written and I would recommend that if you have time you read the entire article and not just the few paragraphs that I pluck out.

Sixty-five years after Germany's campaign to exterminate the Jews, of the many countries in the world Israel is the only one repeatedly subjected to calls for its extinction. Though Pakistan and India, like Israel and the Arabs, have suffered population exchange and territorial wars, neither questions the other's right to exist. So rare and extreme is such a position that one might think the countries of Europe, so many of which cooperated in hunting down their Jews, would do more to recognize its endemic presence in the Middle East.

They don't—their publics having largely accepted that, in regard to the question of Palestine, Arabs were the victims and Jews the victimizers and colonialists to boot. Even though, strangely for colonialists, the Jews had no mother country and it was their armed struggle that ejected Great Britain from the Levant. Conveniently forgotten is that the Jews accepted partition and the Arabs did not; that half the Palestinians who left in 1948 did so of their own volition; that more Jews left and were expelled from Arab countries than Arabs left and were expelled from Palestine; that Arabs were able to remain in Israel whereas the Arab states are effectively Judenrein; that Israel ceded the Sinai for a paper treaty, and Gaza in return for nothing but rockets and bombs; that, amidst a sea of Islamic states, it has accepted a Palestinian state while the Palestinians indignantly refuse to recognize it as a Jewish state; and that it was ready to compromise even on Jerusalem had Yasser Arafat been willing to take yes for an answer.

The military strategy of Israel's enemies is now to alter the conventional balance while either equipping themselves with nuclear weapons or denying them to Israel, or both. Their calls for equation of the two sides in a nuclear-free Middle East leave out the lack of equation in aims. Israel cannot dream of conquering its adversaries and replacing them with a Jewish state. But from war to war its adversaries have made their intentions clear, and as their mass and wealth are applied to their militaries over time, Israel's last line of defense in a continual state of siege is the nuclear arsenal devoted solely to preserving its existence.

See it here;

The world's claims against Israel are so illogical that they have to be supernatural. Satan wants Israel gone....and his latest weapon of choice is militant Islam. What is terribly sad is that most countries can't understand it.

What is tragic is that most Christians can't understand it...and really don't seem to care one way or another.

Large Scale Security Incident

Sorry for all the postings as of late on Iran...but what can I say?....when Israel's ancient mortal enemy has it's leader standing on the border of Israel declaring they will soon go to hell and be have to admit that it bears watching.

The Iranian weekly paper is saying that there is soon going to be a "large scale security incident" involving Lebanon and Israel.

Remember that Iran's proxy army is Hezbollah which is based right on the Israeli border in southern Lebanon.

Also remember that Psalm 83 talks about a day when Israel will basically take control of all of Lebanon.

There will soon be a “large-scale security incident” involving Lebanon and Israel, according to the Iranian weekly paper Sobh-e Sadeq, which is affiliated with Iran's Revolutionary Guards. The “prediction” was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Iran funds, arms and trains the Hizbullah terrorist group based in southern Lebanon. Hizbullah would be unlikely to provoke a “security incident” without Iran's approval.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is currently visiting Lebanon. Hizbullah has led the Iranian president on a tour of southern Lebanon. There he met with residents of the area and praised them for attacking Israel, saying, “You fought at the front line against the aggressors and Zionist occupiers... the Zionists will go back to the place they came from.”

Sobh-e Sadeq also warned the Lebanese government against continuing to implicate Hizbullah in the assassination of Rafiq Al-Hariri. Accusing Hizbullah of involvement in the slaying “will make it impossible for the Lebanese government to operate,” the paper stated.

See link here;

I wonder what "a large scale security incident" means? I think we can be plenty sure that it doesn't mean they are planning on making peace with Israel.

Also I want to ask Ahmadinejad, "where do you think the Zionists (Jews) came from? Is it your belief they should go back to Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Russia, Poland, Germany, and 100 other countries? Would you give them the right of return to come back to Iran? After all, you did kick most of them out of your country soon after Israel was declared in 1948."

Hat tip to Tom.

France Foreshadowing

A handful of months ago, we wondered aloud if the situation in Greece was a foreshadowing to what may be coming for America. Now we can add France to that list.

In case you haven't heard, the folks in France are rioting because the government told them that the normal retirement age was going to increase from age 60 to 62....and the rioting seems to be getting worse.

About 1,500 petrol stations in France have run dry or are about to close as fuel supplies are hit by strikes over government pension reforms, officials say.

A blockade of oil refineries is into its seventh day and the body that supplies most supermarkets says one in four petrol stations is affected.

President Nicolas Sarkozy has called a crisis cabinet to protect supplies.

Oil company Exxon Mobil has described the situation as "critical".

Panic-buying led to a 50% increase in fuel sales last week.

According to the latest opinion polls, more than 70% of French people continue to support strike action.

On Saturday, a fifth day of protests brought 825,000 people on to the streets, police said, although unions put the figure at 2.5 million to three million.

See it here;

Let's say you have a 2 year old kid just sitting on the floor playing with his trucks. Now imagine bringing in a huge rainbow colored sucker and saying, "James, look what daddy brought you!" Of course James takes the sucker and starts eating it while he plays with his trucks. Ten minutes later you walk back in the room and say, "Sorry James, I need that sucker back."...and you proceed to take it from him.

What do you think the outcome will be?

Of course we know that little James is going to scream and wail and throw his trucks around.

But why? Wasn't James happy just ten minutes earlier when he DIDN'T have the sucker and ONLY had his trucks?

Of course he was...but he PREFERRED to have a free sucker AND his trucks.

That's what's happening in France.

And that's what's going to happen in the USA when we take away Medicare, Social Security, Food stamps, Section 8 housing, Welfare, Unemployment pay, cheap college loans, etc....

100 years ago, none of those programs existed...and not one soul in the USA expected to be given them. We were content with something simple like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness....and that was a huge blessing compared to the rest of the world.

But now that we have had those big sugary suckers....we will scream like a 2 year old once someone comes and takes them away.

Israel on its Way to Hell

The mad-man-from Iran is ramping up his rhetoric....and yet the world seems to ignore his comments and simply brush him if he is a hot-air bag.

It seems that is kind of how it happened with Hitler as well....

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday said that Israel would "soon go to hell" and called on the West to drop support for the Jewish state.

"Grounds are being prepared for the Zionist regime [Israel] to go to hell soon and any country supporting this regime will join it on its trip to hell as well," Ahmadinejad said in a speech in Ardebil in north-western Iran, carried live by the news network Khabar.

Ahmadinejad promised that Iran would continue supporting the Lebanese people and its "resistance" against Israel. But he was careful to avoid expressions that could give the impression that Iran or Hezbollah would use Lebanese soil to attack Israel.

"The Zionists planned to destroy this community [Bint Jbail], but it stood strong against the occupiers," he declaimed. "The entire world should know that the Zionists are destined to disappear from the world, while Bint Jbail will remain alive. And the sons of Bint Jbail will know how to defeat the Zionist enemy."

See it here;

World history shows us that when someone says something over and over...they usually mean it...because they BELIEVE it.

When will we wake up and realize that this dude believes that the LAST DAYS are upon us?....and that his understanding of the LAST DAYS is drastically different than what the Bible tells us.

When will the world wake up and realize that this dude believes it is HIS ROLE TO HELP BRING ABOUT THE CHAOS NECESSARY TO FULFILL THE 12TH IMAM PROPHECIES?....and this dude has been spending all his nation's money on missiles and spinning centrifuges hoping to come up with a launch able nuclear missile.

We probably shouldn't hold our breath too long waiting for realization to kick in. As a country we are sick of war, bankrupt, unemployed, mistrusting of our leaders....we just don't have the time or stomach to take on some other middle eastern dude...."let's just wait until he does something that merits our concern," goes one argument.

The problem with that argument is that we now live in an age where a few bad guys can literally bring an end to the entire Western Civilization....and that means the USA.
