The Ice is Thickening!! The Temps Are Dropping!!

Call Al Gore!!  The ice is getting thicker, the polar bears are breeding, the temps are falling and it appears another ice age is coming!!  This kind of news must be devastating the global-warming-enthusiasts like Al Gore....or not.  They simply have too much invested in their cause to back down now.

There is a tradition in politics that is similar to one in the legal profession: When evidence supports your position, make your argument based on the evidence, but when it argues against your position, ignore the evidence and appeal to emotion.
The evidence is piling up that “climate change,” formerly known as “global warming,” is losing evidentiary support, despite recent “preliminary findings” by a group of “experts” from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that a Washington Post editorial suggests may prove, “warming has boosted the chances, in some cases significantly, that certain unwelcome weather or weather-related disasters will occur.” The Post and other “true believers” ignore or ridicule a growing body of evidence rebutting their beliefs.

Marc Morano, a former staff member of the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (whose web page offers numerous scientific articles debunking climate change), emails me: “As a long observer of the global weather movement, I can say that the events of 2013 (have) been one of the most devastating to the movement. Both poles have record expanding ice. Global temperatures have failed to rise for 15 plus years, sea level rise is failing to accelerate, tornadoes are at record lows, hurricanes are near record low activity … 2013 may be the year in which man-made global warming fears enter the dustbin of history.”


So this info has to be a serious challenge to the "Polar bears are dying!!!" fan base.  So let's check in a liberal site that is desperately clinging to its cause.  They point to the Colorado flooding as MORE EVIDENCE that mankind has killed the world!!

As I Shop-Vac the water seeping into my Boulder, Colo., basement for the hundredth time this week, I’ve had a lot of time to think of my old friend Jim Jensen, who runs the Montana Environmental Information Center. Jensen is a crotchety fellow, much hated in Montana by all the right people — mining CEOs, timber earls and other assorted assailants of the environment. He himself is a hater of sorts. He hates cant. A couple of cant phrases I have heard him disparage are “global warming” and “climate change.” They’re too anodyne for him. They don’t inherently call to mind — or more to the point, the gut — much more than a pleasant June day after the last snows have melted in Helena or fine-tuning the thermostat on your 5,000-square-foot chipboard palace. Jensen prefers the term “global climate disruption” — to him an adequate description of the horror we face thanks to our ongoing hundred-plus-year debauch burning fossil fuels. The word “disruption” makes clear that we will not easily adapt to the ravages to our atmosphere. Indeed some people will not adapt at all. Some will just die — from lack of water or, be it in Boulder or Bangladesh, its reverse. I think Jensen is onto something with “global climate disruption,” but I might go him one better with “climate devastation.” It’s really that bad.

If you doubt a stronger term is needed, I propose you consider the dissonance between bailing water in Boulder one hour, then reading the national press the next. You have to read quite a while before you find anyone who will suggest that the storm we had is not a fluke of nature (“historically bad luck,” an editor at Time called it) but rather, quite possibly, the viper of climate devastation. Let’s be clear about the storm we’re talking about. You have probably read that it was a hundred-year flood, a flood that has a 1 percent chance of occurring in any given year. That’s an almighty understatement. The numbers show it was a thousand-year flood, a flood with a 0.1 percent chance of occurring in any given year. The most rain that had ever been recorded in Boulder from one storm was 7.37 inches on May 5 through May 8, 1967. We got more than 9 inches last Thursday alone. We got 15 inches Monday through Friday. That’s as much rain as we’ve gotten in entire years. Our average annual precipitation is about 20 inches, our record 29.93. We hit 30 inches this weekend—and we’ve got three and a half months to go.


Holy catastrophe!!  They have new terms!!...."global climate disruption" & "climate devastation".

Of course I am no scientist.  I have no clue if the polar bears are dying.  I have no clue if the ice caps are growing or if those photos are photo-shopped to make it LOOK LIKE the ice has grown.  I have no clue if global temps are changing.  I have no clue if sea levels are rising.

But, here is what I do know....this world will not end until the Creator of the universe says it will end.  Also, the Bible tells us that strange weather, droughts, sun and moon darkened, earthquakes, floods and famines will all be signs that point to the VERY LAST DAYS.

So as we watch the devastation in Colorado, we should not be surprised that Boulder just recorded the most rainfall EVER!! 

The divide between those of us who have a biblical world view and those who don't will continue to grow.  Just don't let it surprise you when a co-worker, neighbor or family member lashes out at you when the conversation comes up.  It is to be expected.

The Pope Said What??

CBS News, with Charlie Rose, was all excited this morning!!  The lead story was the Pope's comments about gays, abortion and contraception.

Six months into his papacy, Pope Francis sent shock waves through the Roman Catholic church on Thursday with the publication of his remarks that the church had grown “obsessed” with abortion, gay marriage and contraception, and that he had chosen not to talk about those issues despite recriminations from critics.

His surprising comments came in a lengthy interview in which he criticized the church for putting dogma before love, and for prioritizing moral doctrines over serving the poor and marginalized. He articulated his vision of an inclusive church, a “home for all” — which is a striking contrast with his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, the doctrinal defender who envisioned a smaller, purer church.

Francis told the interviewer, a fellow Jesuit: “It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently.
“I see the church as a field hospital after battle,” Francis said. “It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars. You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else.”

“We have to find a new balance,” the pope continued, “otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.”
From the outset of his papacy in March, Francis, who is 76, has chosen to use the global spotlight to focus on the church’s mandate to serve the poor and oppressed. He has washed the feet of juvenile prisoners, visited a center for refugees and hugged disabled pilgrims at his audiences. His pastoral presence and humble gestures have made him wildly popular among American Catholics, according to a recent Pew survey.
“This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people,” he said. “We must not reduce the bosom of the universal church to a nest protecting our mediocrity.”
Yea!!  The Pope is wildly popular among American Catholics!!!
Listen friends, I agree that the liberal media and the homo lobby has gotten followers of Christ to spend an ENORMOUS amount of time on this particular sin.....but how can we not when the gay agenda is literally in the headline news every single day, when gay marriage is in the news every single day and every new TV show has gay characters being shoved down our throats??
So what are we to do??
Let's be VERY is not attractive for a morbidly obese follower of Christ to point fingers at gay people and say, "YOU ARE A SINNER!!"  Jesus was very clear when he told us to remove the plank from our own eye so that we can see clearly to remove the splinter from our brother's eye.  The sin of gluttony, which haunts morbidly obese people, is mentioned as something that God does not approve of.  He also does not approve of adultery, gossiping, selfishness, fornication, pride, etc... etc...
But on the flip side, if the only person would could talk about sin has to be a sinless person....then no one (save Christ) could ever say anything to anyone!!  What would that look like?  Well, the married man could be screwing his secretary and still serve as Elder!  The man taking his brothers to court to sue them could also sing in the church choir and serve communion!  The drunkard could be a confirmation teacher!  The man stoned on pain killers could preach from the pulpit!  And of course that would damage the church and make her a laughing stock in front of the entire which Apostle Paul would say, "No!!"
So let's get back to the Pope....could his words be another step towards the ONE WORLD RELIGION that the Bible speaks of in the Last Days?  Is he just one more man who is telling people "what their itchy ears want to hear", that sin really doesn't exist because whatever we want to do, Christ will still love us and there will be no penalty for sin??
If Christians stop speaking out about the travesty of abortion and quit speaking out about gay marriage, polygamy and eventually bestiality....WHO WILL SPEAK UP??  The pagans??  The atheists???  The agnostics???
For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Yes, of course we all want to be told that hell doesn't exist and "if it feels good then do it!"...and that divorce really won't bother your kids, and that "fat is beautiful", and that the definition of perversion "depends of societal norms", etc....
And now if we can get the Pope to come out and say he is going to quit speaking of sin and simply focus on helping the poor....that certainly seems to play right into the hand of the Antichrist.

Why Syria? Why Now?

I just watched a video yesterday of a bunch of butchered civilians in Syria.  There is NO WAY to know for sure whether they are Christians, Sunnis, Shiites, Alawites or a combination....however, it was very clear that one of the victims they held up for the camera was a little girl.  The girl had her head cut off and they couldn't find the it was just a lifeless little body in a blue party dress, with little white socks and shiny black shoes.  She was probably on her way to school when some men got hold of her and cut her little head off while screaming, "Allah Akhbar!"

Really??  What kind of Satanic forces are at work here?  How many demons of war have been unleashed on Syria?  There must REALLY be something BIG worth fighting over in that poverty stricken place....wonder what it could be??

And even more the USA involved in fanning the flames of these demons of war??

You may be wondering if Syria poses a threat to the US. The answer is, like in Libya, no threat at all. It‘s the consequences of our intended military actions that pose the threat.  Don’t get bogged down in the simplistic, targeted propaganda of the various “news” outlets. Much larger agendas are in play: A convergence of plans and planning that are ultimately driven by Satan, for a single purpose.

It [the Beast] was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.   All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world” (Revelation 13:7-8).
What earthly faction wants to conquer God’s holy people? There are several to be sure, but one has emerged with a satanic fury. Who are God’s holy people? The Quran alternatively calls them “the people of the book” and “idolaters,” a reference to Jews and Christians. Oops, am I implicating the laughably self-labeled “peaceful” religion? I’ll let relentless Muslim barbarity and the very words of the Quran itself, speak on behalf of Islam.
When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way.  Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful” (Surah 9:5).
Convert or die; the same choice that Christians in Syria are getting; the same choice that the Antichrist will offer. US military action to punish the Syrian government for allegedly using chemical weapons is not the end-all goal of intervention there.
It’s just the excuse. It’s the start.
Syria is a high-level, meticulously planned intelligence operation. There would be no Syrian civil war without direct US/Saudi involvement there. All the blood that’s been shed, the five million people that have been displaced are on the US ledger. We provided the initial protesters, trained, imbedded and armed the terrorists, and continue to support them in every way possible, including supplying them with chemical weapons to kill civilians and then blame it on the Syrian government; all part of the master plan to get us involved.
Without ongoing US/Saudi military assistance to the terrorists, this war would be over in a week. Behold another textbook example of the Hegelian Dialectic in action, in which a crisis is manufactured, public perception is steered toward an outcry for a suggested and predetermined solution, followed by implementation of that solution. In this case, the solution is: war.
The problem for Barry, as it currently stands, is that there’s a lack of public outcry. Oh there’s political and media outcry, it’s just that the people aren’t buying it. Not this time.  Sorry, Bill O’Reilly. The spin doesn’t stop with you—it starts with you, for shame, Sir.
Silly sheeple… (Like your opinion have ever really mattered anyway.)
The Russians and others around the world know the truth and have stated it. Undeterred, President Barry and Secretary-of-State Kerry hold steadfastly to their lie and deny strategy. Speaking of the hypocrite Kerry. This unconscionable liar was on TV stating that chemical weapons have only been used three times in history: Hitler, Saddam Hussein and now Bashar Assad in Syria. Really? World War One saw widespread use of chemical weapons on all sides. But let’s stick to his most modern examples. Where did Saddam Hussein get the chemical weapons that he used on the Iranians in the Iraq-Iran War from 1980-1988?  Surprise, they came from the CIA. 
Friends, there is SO MUCH going on behind the scenes that we will NEVER know from watching FOX, CBS, CNN or NBC.  We also have no idea if the above article is all true or just one man's opinion who also doesn't know all the facts...but he certainly makes an interesting case.
But here is what we do know because the Bible says so:
John 16:2
They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God.
Wow!  Do you see these Muslims saying "Allah Akhbar!" as they sever people's heads or execute someone?  Of course the media will tell you that Allah is the Arabic word for these folks butchering everyone really believe they are offering a service to God!
Ephesians 6
 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
So when we see these people doing heinous things to little kids and we watch the gas released on Syrian civilians but have NO IDEA who did it...we KNOW that the evil spiritual forces in the heavenly realms are involved.
1 John 5
19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
Yep, when the Bible says the "whole world" that certainly includes the USA and the shadowy powers that are currently pulling us along.
"But Dennis, we are a Christian nation!"
Really?  Would a Christian nation be the top producers and users of pornography?  Would a Christian nation rip 50,000,000 babies out of their mother's wombs and toss them in dumpsters?  Would a Christian nation bathe in crap-TV like 90% of the stuff we watch...all the while learning to be entertained by watching sin?  Would a Christian nation be almost totally illiterate when it comes to the Bible?  Would a Christian nation have elected Barack Obama when it became clear what "church" he belonged to?  Would a Christian nation be falling all over itself to legalize gay marriage and encourage perversion?
Something BIG is going on and it is very important that we all be in prayer against these dark forces and to hold up our leaders and pray that the fear of the Lord will give them wisdom.

America is Now Upside Down

How did all this weird stuff happen in America...and how did it all come so fast?  How were the liberal-loonies able to get crazy stuff implemented even though MOST Americans disagree with their lunacy?

In public schools throughout California, thanks to a brand new bill signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown, boys can now use girls’ locker rooms and restrooms and play on their sports teams, as long as they feel more comfortable thinking of themselves as girls. Same thing with a girl who feels more emotionally comfortable thinking of herself as a boy; she now can use the boys’ restrooms, dress and undress in the boys’ locker room and play on their team.If that’s not bizarre, nothing is bizarre, and we should just retire the term from our dictionaries and save a tree.
The Fort Hood shooter, U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was finally convicted of his crimes by a military court and sentenced to death. Thank goodness. But let’s look at how the Obama administration dealt with the massacre for the past almost-four years. Hasan, who shouted “Allahu Akbar” before shooting 14 people to death (including an unborn baby) and wounding more than 30 others, openly admitted he was, is, and ever shall be, an Islamic jihad warrior. Yet the Obama administration refused to call what he did “terrorism,” categorizing it instead as “workplace violence.” Until his recent conviction, taxpayers continued to pay Hasan’s salary as a military psychiatrist of $80,000 a year (more than $278,000 since the Nov. 5, 2009, terror attack).But during the same period, the Obama administration refused to pay to have the remaining bullets removed from the back of a soldier who was shot multiple times by Hasan. In fact, the Army garnished the soldier’s pay when he sought counseling for PTSD after the attack. Likewise, the soldiers victimized by Hasan will not receive Purple Hearts or combat-related benefits intended for victims. When the families of soldiers shot by Hasan complained about all this, the Obama administration slapped a gag order on them.

  • Illegal aliens: Although their presence is hurting America’s economy, bankrupting border states, injecting many criminals and gangs into the population, permanently harming our culture, taking jobs away from Americans and threatening (once they get amnesty) to create a permanent Democrat voting majority, illegal aliens are rarely prosecuted and deported and, in fact, increasingly are being treated as a protected class! Meanwhile, those opposed to illegal immigration – which is still a crime – are maligned as bigoted, heartless, “anti-immigrant” and, of course, racist.

  • Psychiatric drugs: Antidepressant drugs like Prozac, Paxil and Effexor are given to tens of millions of Americans – in fact, 11 percent of everyone in the country over 12 years of age, according to the most recent stats from the CDC. Yet the most well-known side effect of these drugs is that they cause suicidal thoughts. Mind you, antidepressant-induced feelings of “suicidality” are not so-called “rare adverse events” (i.e., occurring in less than 1 in 1,000 people using the drug) – but rather, are serious side effects for the average user, warned about on a “black box warning label,” the FDA’s strongest possible warning, included on every antidepressant sold in America.Repeat: We are giving depressed people drugs that literally make them want to kill themselves.
  • Guns: Virtually all of the serious, scholarly research done for the past three decades on the relationship between firearms and crime shows that more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens (especially concealed-carry handguns) results in less crime. And yet, there is a never-ending push to take firearms out of the hands of law-abiding citizens – to “stop the violence.”

  • Voter fraud: The “Department of Justice” is working overtime to block states from passing legislation requiring that voters identify themselves before voting. So, even though you need a photo ID to get on an airplane, cash a check, check out a library book or purchase Sudafed, the Obama DOJ now considers it discriminatory (and, of course, racist) to require people to identify themselves before exercising the most important civic right Americans have, which alone permits them to determine the direction and destiny of their country.

  • See it all, and more, here;

    So what do we do as we watch good being called evil and evil being called good?

    The author goes on to tell us;

    As George Orwell put it: “The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it.”
    For some of us, the pain and suffering of living life in Bizarro World finally awakens us to realize we’ve been rebelling against our Creator – that we’ve been tricked, and that now something else, with its own bizarre thoughts and feelings, has been “created” and is living through us, kind of like in “The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” It’s called sin. It’s in us, but it’s not really us.

    There is a simple way out of this state: It’s called repentance. If we will only stop in our tracks and cease being so prideful and angry; if we will stop making excuses, blaming everyone else and justifying everything wrong with us; if we will just relax, take a deep breath and realize that something is seriously wrong with us, but that God can help us; if we will just find the courage, honesty and dignity not to freak out, but to face our sinfulness calmly, and to wordlessly ask God to help us, He will. It’s what He does.

    He will take us by the hand and lead us away from Bizarro World – which is just a comic-book term for the angry, rebellious, excuse-ridden, inverted, perverted realm most of us dwell in – and He will show us the way out.

    Once we get our feet firmly planted on His path, then everything that once seemed so important and fulfilling to us – when we were tangled up with and compulsively attracted to everything wrong – will just seem, well, bizarre.

    Study Shows USA Has Long Term Debt Problems

    I honestly started to chuckle when I saw this headline come up from USA Today.  Really?!?  They needed a STUDY to tell us that we are LONG TERM BROKE?!?!

    New study warns of U.S. long-term debt problems

    WASHINGTON — The government could run out of cash to pay its bills in full and on time sometime between the end of October and the middle of November if lawmakers fail to increase its $16.7 trillion borrowing cap, Congressional Budget Office Director Doug Elmendorf said on Tuesday.

    Elmendorf told reporters that the Treasury Department's assessment that it'll run out of borrowing authority and have just $50 billion cash on hand in mid-October "sounds plausible."

    The government has never defaulted on its obligations and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew warned Tuesday that Congress needs to act to increase the debt limit by mid-October but he warned Republicans that President Barack Obama will never go along with their demand to derail implementation of the new health care law as part of a measure to fund the government or increase the debt limit.

    "Efforts to either defund or delay the Affordable Care Act are unacceptable," Lew told the Economic Club of Washington. "That is not a path towards something that can ultimately be signed into law."

    Tuesday's Congressional Budget Office report says that government spending on health care and Social Security would double relative to the size of the economy in 25 years and that spending on other programs like defense, transportation and education would decline to its smallest level by the same measure since the Great Depression.

    The share of federal spending devoted to health care would rise from 4.6% of gross domestic product today to 8% in 2038; spending on Social Security would rise as well, as the number of people receiving benefits rises to more than 100 million in 25 years, compared with 57 million people taking benefits now.

    The rise in costs for the popular benefits programs has been apparent for many years and budget hawks says it's best to tackle their unsustainable growth immediately rather than be forced to make more draconian cuts later. But Washington — whether government is divided or controlled by one party — has been unable to agree on ways to curb the growth of these programs.

    The report comes as a divided Congress and Obama need to deal with two important problems: keeping the government funded beyond the Oct. 1 start of the 2014 budget year and permitting the government to borrow more money to pay those bills. Republicans hope to use the must-pass stopgap spending and debt limit legislation to derail "Obamacare" and force further spending curbs.

    Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., chairman of the House Budget Committee, said: "In the weeks ahead, I hope we work together to heed CBO's warning. We must provide relief to the families we serve. We should start by delaying Obamacare and paying down the debt to help grow the economy."


    OK...let me summarize that all for you....the USA has a credit card balance that they can't pay back and that they keep adding to because they have no other way to raise income.  The credit card is maxed's at its limit.  Obama passed Obamacare and it is going to require lots more money to get it up and he wants to put on the credit card.  The Republicans hate Obamacare for a variety of reasons and have threatened to DE FUND it OR they will NOT raise the credit card limit...thereby possibly pushing the USA closer to default. (default is when you don't pay principal and/or interest on your credit card)

    Wow!  What a pickle!!  We want things TODAY that we can't we borrow the money in hopes that SOMEONE ELSE IN THE FUTURE will be able to pay it back!!  Love it!!

    "Hey Mr. Chevy dealer...I would like one of those 2014 Corvette convertibles...the red one with the Super H/O engine and the custom wheels!  How much?  Ok...$94,000...that sounds pretty good.  What's my down payment?  Nothing!!  Well what is my monthly payment?  $50 per month for 30 years and then a balloon payment of $3 million??  I'll take it!!  Who cares what happens in 30 years....that's so far away, I'll be way better off by then...and I get to drive this awesome car TODAY for only $50 a month!!!  The babes will love me...and even my wife will think I'm pretty cool!!"

    Fast forward 30 years....the Corvette has long been in the junk heap and now you need a new car....but you have a nagging problem of the $3 million balloon payment....Crap!! just NEVER thought that day would come....30 years seemed like so far away in the future!!....and you had houses to buy, kids to put through school, vacations to Cancun, ski weekends, cabins and boats to keep the family just never got around to saving for that $3 million balloon payment....and now the banker is going to call next month....what are you going to do??

    Of course the scary thing about the U.S. debt problem is that Russia and China may be the bankers who come calling....

    D.C. Shooter Heard "Voices"

    Are we starting to see some type of pattern here when heinous crimes are committed?  Why would a lady drive her kids into a lake and drown them?  Why would a lady cut the head off her 4 year old daughter?  Why would a man slit the throat of his 3 daughters while they slept in bed?  Why would this man start randomly shooting people at the Navy Yard yesterday?


    Now, of course, the science department at your local university will always give the same answer...."these folks had a MENTAL PROBLEM and they were paranoid schizophrenics requiring massive amounts of drugs to quiet those voices."

    WASHINGTON -- Investigators still don't know why Aaron Alexis went on a bloody shooting spree Monday that left 12 people dead but clues are emerging that the military veteran had suffered from serious mental illness and could act quickly -- and violently -- when angered.

    U.S. law enforcement officials told the Associated Press that Alexis, who died in a shootout with law enforcement officers, had paranoia and a sleep disorder and was "hearing voices" in his head.

    The wire service, quoting unidentified sources, said Alexis had been treated since August by the U.S. Veterans Affairs for serious mental illness, including "hearing voices." The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the criminal investigation was continuing.

    Nutpisit Suthamtewakul met Alexis around three years ago at a Fort Worth Buddhist temple and quickly became friends with him. Alexis moved in with Suthamtewakul, who owns the Happy Bowl Thai restaurant, and the two would have late-night drinking sessions, fueled by Heineken beer.

    Suthamtewakul would move four times over the next three years. Alexis moved with him. Struggling to keep a job, Alexis didn't contribute to the rent but would come to Suthamtewakul's restaurant and help with deliveries for free, including to some of Fort Worth's roughest neighborhoods, Suthamtewakul said. Often, Alexis would have his .45-caliber pistol tucked in his belt, he said.


    So....let's pull out our Bibles and paste some of these clues emerging about yesterday's shooter;  1) was hearing voices, 2) was prone to drunkenness using Heineken beer, 3) was a Buddhist.

    With those clues, we are now going to solve the case of the D.C. shooter. 

    The shooter had no clue how to put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6) and hence was not able to protect himself against the Evil One.  Every time he got drunk on Heineken (which the Bible warns against), the demons of Satan would creep a little further into his mind. (Love the Lord your God with all your strength and all your MIND)  He would then go to the Buddhist temple to try and figure out how to clear these voices that had started harassing him....but had no clue he was stepping out of the furnace and into the fire...since a Buddhist temple is a favorite haunt of demons!!  The strength of the demons finally overtook his mind and ordered him to go on a shooting rampage...probably telling him that HE DESERVED BETTER TREATMENT than he was getting from the THEY SHOULD PAY!!!

    Tragic.  Demons cause even more mayhem.

    I pray the Lord will be with all these families who lost innocent loved ones yesterday.  I pray that Jesus will draw near to them and use this tragedy to lead some of the lost into eternal life.

    So now that WE have solved the case....what do you think the media is going to focus on for the next 30 days??

    Yep!!....those NASTY, VIOLENT GUNS!!!

    How ironic that Obama is trying to send assault weapons to Syrian civilians so they can protect themselves from their own government....but the liberals of America are trying to put a ban on assault weapons being owned by law abiding Americans.

    You can't make that up!!

    12 Dead In D.C. Mass Shooting

    More death and carnage. 

    Kind of interesting that this morning I did a blog-post on Al Qaeda ordering lone-wolf attacks and how an action like that can close down a D.C. is getting parts shut down and even Congress has closed and there is talk of cancelling Major League Baseball tonight.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — As many as two gunmen opened fire Monday morning inside the Washington Navy Yard, killing at least 12 people in an attack on office workers at the heavily secured military installation in the heart of the nation's capital, authorities said.
    One gunman was dead, and police hunted for a second possible attacker who may have been disguised in a military-style uniform, police said.
    Investigators said they had not established a motive for the shooting rampage, which unfolded less than four miles from the White House. As for whether it may have been a terrorist attack, Mayor Vincent Gray said: "We don't have any reason to think that at this stage."
    The FBI took charge of the investigation.
    President Barack Obama mourned yet another mass shooting in the U.S. that he said took the lives of American patriots. Obama promised to make sure "whoever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible."
    The area that was targeted, known as Building 197, was part of the headquarters for Naval Sea Systems Command, which buys, builds and maintains ships, submarines and combat systems. About 3,000 people work at the headquarters, many of them civilians.
    Witnesses described a gunman opening fire from a fourth-floor overlook, aiming down on people in the first-floor cafeteria. Others said a gunman fired at them in a third-floor hallway. It was not clear whether the witnesses on different floors were describing the same gunman.
    Around midday, police said they were searching for two men who may have taken part in the attack — one carrying a handgun and wearing a tan Navy-style uniform and a beret, the other armed with a long gun and wearing an olive-green uniform. Washington Police Chief Cathy Lanier said it was unclear if the men were members of the military.
    But later in the day, police said in a tweet that the man in the tan uniform had been identified and was not involved in the shooting.
    It was not immediately clear whether the number of dead included a gunman.
    As emergency vehicles and law enforcement officers flooded streets around the complex, a helicopter hovered overhead, nearby schools were locked down and airplanes at nearby Reagan National Airport were grounded so they would not interfere with law-enforcement choppers.
    What will be the fall out if the shooters turn out to be Muslims?  Will the media actually have to say "Muslim" or "Islam" when they go to describe the motive?
    We know the media is hoping the shooter's name is Ben Peterson and that he is deacon at his local Lutheran church....then it would back up their worldview that, "all religions have their extremists".
    And of course when the Muslim brothers in Boston killed and maimed dozens with a pressure-cooker one blamed the pressure and see the Liberals start oozing at the mouth with rabies-laced foam as they speak of "another mass shooting"...and will trip over themselves to blame the guns for all this death and carnage.  "If only we could outlaw guns!", they will wail!!
    How ironic that the very same liberals are debating sending assault rifles to Syria so the citizens can protect themselves from the Government who is butchering them....but they want to take the assault rifles from U.S. citizens!!  You can't make that one up!!! 

    Al Qaeda Calls for Attacks Inside USA

    Do you remember a handful of months ago when two Muslim brothers in Boston blew up some pressure cookers at the Boston Marathon...killing and injuring dozens?

    Do you remember how the entire city got shut down and a curfew was put in force while 3000 SWAT officers looked for these brothers?

    Do you know how much that cost the city of Boston to orchestrate that police activity?  Do you know how much it cost the city of Boston in lost worker production as every worker stayed home...terrified of one Muslim with a gun OR the 3000 men with rifles looking for him?

    Do you think Al Qaeda also realizes what would happen to America if they could repeat that Boston scenario 300 times over?

    Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri urged small-scale attacks inside the United States to "bleed America economically," adding he hoped eventually to see a more significant strike, according to the SITE monitoring service.
    In an audio speech released online a day after the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 strikes, Zawahri said attacks "by one brother or a few of the brothers" would weaken the US economy by triggering big spending on security, SITE reported.

    Western counter-terrorism chiefs have warned that radicalized "lone wolves" who might have had no direct contact with al-Qaeda posed as great a risk as those who carried out complex plots like the 9/11 attacks.
    "We should bleed America economically by provoking it to continue in its massive expenditure on its security, for the weak point of America is its economy, which has already begun to stagger due to the military and security expenditure," he said.
    Keeping America in such a state of tension and anticipation only required a few disparate attacks "here and there", he said

    "As we defeated it in the gang warfare in Somalia, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan, so we should follow it with ...war on its own land. These disparate strikes can be done by one brother or a few of the brothers."

     At the same time, Muslims should seize any opportunity to land "a large strike" on the United States, even if this took years of patience.


    Yep...I guess Al Qaeda already DOES realize how America could be brought to our knees....just make everyone terrified to go to the mall or public gathering for fear that a Muslim with a pressure cooker or a gun could be there to cause carnage.

    Pretty soon Americans would be BEGGING for the military to patrol the streets and they wouldn't even complain about curfews.....just KEEP US SAFE!!!

    Of the 3,000,000 Muslims in America, is it possible that there could be a handful more like the Boston brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?

    More Talk About EMP's

    We have blogged numerous times on Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) and how the USA could be instantly sent back to the 1850's and all of our technology rendered worthless in that same blink of an eye.

    We know they are caused by massive solar storms. We had one in the USA in the 1850's known as the Carrington Event. Back then it didn't cause much problem because electricity was in its infancy.

    We also know they are caused by exploding a nuclear warhead some miles in the sky over a country and all electrical functions are destroyed.  No cars, no laptops, no cell phones, no electricity to pump wells, no refrigeration at home or in stores, etc., etc....

    I can't help but think of the mood in America right now.  A lot of folks seem to be pretty upbeat!  New car sales are having their biggest boom in years, the stock market is up over 100% from its March 2009 low, real estate prices are on the rebound (so we are told), some of my neighbors who are in construction are reporting they are so busy they are turning down work!!

    It would seem that happy days are here again.

    Images of Christians being beheaded and dismembered, gassed and crucified in Syria, Egypt, Iraq and other Muslim lands seem to be a long way off.  Why should we worry about that??  After all, we had a good church service yesterday and were still home in time to have leftover Chinese food and watch the NFL kickoff!

    I can't help but hear the words of Apostle Paul as he describes the coming of the Day of the Lord in 1 Thessalonians 5;

    Now, brothers and sisters, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “Peace and safety,” destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

    I realize that this passage could have NUMEROUS times of fulfilment...including a time in the future when the Antichrist signs an agreement with Israel....but it makes me ponder how exactly things might be in America if this afternoon all the lights went out...and stayed out for months?

    Now today, Rapture Ready wrote about EMP's again and I will post their comments below.

    EMP and Gog
    It’s a frightening thing to consider. For the most technologically endowed nation to ever exist on planet Earth, it would be a nightmare of almost unimaginable proportion. I’m referring to an attack on the U.S. by EMP –electromagnetic pulse—about which there continues to be much chatter in the cybersphere. Most feared is a nuclear blast that could interact with the ionosphere, the shell of electrons and electrically charged particles surrounding Earth, to create a series of electromagnetic pulses that could reach across the North American continent, according to the scientists who study such matters. In such an apocalyptic scenario, an American enemy would explode a nuclear weapon a certain number of miles above a central point above the continent. This would cause everything that is controlled by electronic circuitry to fail, bringing society and culture as we have known them to an instantaneous conclusion. All modern transportation would be stopped, with planes falling from the air. Car engines and circuitry would cease to function. From the sophisticated technologies of the hospitals, banks, and electric power-generating plants to the electronically powered, smallest conveniences such as coffeemakers, all would be instantly fried, and we would be sent back to the 1850s in a millisecond, according to the experts. There would be no more TV watching, electronic devices to play music, no cell phone talk, or texting! Now, I know that last bit got your attention. The only positive might be that car accidents caused by texting would cease to occur. For sure, the insurance industry would be out of business. Their electronic files on the texting-caused accidents would be no more… The stores would be out of food within a day because the vehicles to resupply would no longer be operating. Whoever could get to the shelves first on foot or bicycle would get the quickly disappearing grocery items. Water and sewer systems would begin to undergo contamination and disease would begin to spread.Those who warn of such things worry that America’s military capabilities would be degraded to the point the U.S. would have no course of action that would protect the nation from invasion. The military machinery and personnel would be as adversely affected as would we civilians. It is indeed a nightmare to consider. This is all predicated upon the postulation that it would be an enemy nation or possibly terrorist group that would attack with EMP. However, America has nuclear submarines and many other assets that--like in the case of the cold war and MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction)—would devastate any enemy who dared to knock out the American power grid. Even if the enemy could not be determined–such as if al Qaida launched an EMP off a freighter on the Atlantic coast—there are automatic responses programmed that make any enemy think twice before attempting such an untried assault on the most awesome war-making entity ever to exist. Well, maybe that doesn’t exactly apply any longer. Remember Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Those nineteen terrorists did not seem to regard the awesomeness of America’s military. It’s true they have paid the price for the attack. But the price we’ve paid since is far greater. Not just in the trillions of dollars spent and still being spent, but in lives lost and continuing to be lost. Disregarding such an enemy for the moment, the experts tell us we face the possibility of an EMP attack from the cosmos. Now, there’s something to truly be concerned about! Solar flares are the real danger, according to the scientists involved in study of this sort of EMP assault. These coronal mass ejections are enormous sun eruptions of super-hot plasma that spews charged particles across the solar system. They do the same sort of damage that the nuclear weapon EMPs might do, as I understand it. The Earth is in a period of high likelihood for these types of coronal mass ejections for the rest of 2013 and all of 2014, according to the scientists—authorities on such things. Although Congress has been given ways to help prepare for damage such EMP events can do, there has apparently been little interest from that quarter in making preemptive preparation. We remember the same sorts of fears and warnings about the year 2000--Y2K--event. In that instance billions of dollars were thrown into fixing the feared problems. This time around, unlike in the case of the Y2K scare, the mainstream media seems to have all but ignored the EMP concerns. Even peripheral media cable networks and other such media have remained silence. Only the blogosphere is alive with details of the possibility of impending doom. My own thought is that the Lord is and has always been in complete control of the fate of individuals, nations, and the entire Earth–which He created. That’s why there hasn’t been all-out warfare–nuclear war. That’s why there hasn’t been an EMP event that sets us back to the 1850s or so… However, there is a prophetic thought that has nagged for a long time. That’s all it is–a thought. Salem Kirban wrote the novel 666 in the 1960s. He portrayed the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog-Magog attack as being waged totally like the Scripture depicts. There were only horses, bucklers, shields, etc., as they stormed like a cloud to cover the land as the Gog forces raged toward Jerusalem. All modern weaponry had been rendered useless–I can’t remember why or how. An EMP event from Earth’s sun could apparently make Mr. Kirban’s novel truly prophetic, if all we’ve been told about EMP is correct. The way things are shaping in that region of the world should alert us that maybe we don’t have too long to wait to find out about how Bible prophecy plays out.

    Are we folks in America now saying "peace and safety"?  Are we in the calm before an unimaginable storm?  We are done in Iraq, pulling out of Afghanistan and now it looks like we might stay out of Syria....peace and safety??

    Now remember, Paul goes on in the same chapter to give us our blessed hope;

    But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

    Amen!!  God did not appoint us to suffer wrath....BUT....even though we are promised not to receive the wrath of God, CERTAINLY we could receive the wrath of our fellow man and the hardships of a fallen world. 

    Certainly if your Christian-head was on the chopping block in Syria after watching your family raped and dismembered you would believe you were suffering

    While I hope and pray that we in America don't have to endure any hardships like an EMP...and that the trumpet will blow today calling us all home to Jesus....what if we knew that 100,000,000 of our lost family and friends would turn to Jesus Christ due to the impossible conditions created during an American meltdown??  Would we welcome the opportunity to suffer??...OR...would we prefer to keep our posh, comfortable lives...where food, housing and fully stocked Walmarts are taken for granted?
