This Means War


"This is a dangerous world, and this cat isn't remotely qualified to handle it. This guy has no clue, I promise you." - Former President G.W. Bush speaking about then Democratic Presidential nominee Barack H. Obama

War is coming soon. Count on it. I am not talking about the kind of war such as Iraq and Afghanistan, which inconveniences no one beyond the deployed soldiers and their families. No, you are soon going to get the real deal. A conflict that will involve every thought of every moment of your waking lives. President Obama's announcement that he will not fulfill the United States' commitment to install an anti-ballistic missile defense system in Eastern Europe has provided further proof, as if any were needed, that so called "progressives," in spite of all their pseudo-intellectual arrogance, never learn from their mistakes.

VIENNA (AP) - Experts at the world's top atomic watchdog are in agreement that Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report seen by The Associated Press. The document drafted by senior officials at the International Atomic Energy Agency is the clearest indication yet that the agency's leaders share Washington's views on Iran's weapon-making capabilities.

It appears to be the so-called "secret annex" on Iran's nuclear program that Washington says is being withheld by the IAEA's chief. The document says Iran has "sufficient information" to build a bomb. It says Iran is likely to "overcome problems" on developing a delivery system.

The failure to follow through on the previous administration's promise, combined with Iran's continued, and now possibly completed, development of nuclear weapons is an invitation for war...and a big one at that. If you count the cold war as World War Three then gird your loins for World War 4. It's coming.

You have to work very hard to make as many mistakes as fast as this administration has in just nine months. Fear matters in a dangerous world, and make no mistake about it, no-one is afraid of Barack H. Obama. So far he has alienated all of America's traditional allies while encouraging those countries hostile to us.

Obama failed to stand with Iranians protesting the pre-ordained election results that returned Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to office. He is so determined that he can negotiate with this maniacal lunatic that he has acted to keep him in power just so he can prove it to us. He likewise has sided with the Hugo Chavez backed president of Honduras who was rightly ousted by the Honduran Supreme Court and Congress for trying to illegally alter their constitution. Even now, this administration is insisting that Chavez's man be put back into power or the U.S. will not recognize this government or ANY future elected government! That's insane.

He has also been pressing Israel for more concessions while authorizing money for Palestinians. Such financial aid has historically been returned to Israel in the form of unprovoked rocket attacks. Throw in an ill-conceived investigation into the CIA's interrogation of terrorist detainees, and even our own people see no reason to trust this administration. What's next, granting terrorists captured on the battlefield as prisoners of war rights of Habeas Corpus?

BAGRAM, Afghanistan - Afghan inmates held in the US’s Bagram military custody center will soon have their first opportunity to exercise expanded rights to challenge indefinite detention. The Obama administration has prepared a new set of guidelines regarding the legal rights of over 600 Afghan inmates detained at Bagram air-base. The administration hopes to implement the new system during this week. The new system will also grant extended rights to an unknown number of captive nationals from numerous other Middle Eastern states. - Impunity Watch, Asia

The "Blame America First" people are now in charge and they are on an appeasement crusade. The decision not to deploy the missile defense system was part of the Obama administration's "reset" negotiating policy with Russia. Although he was willing to make this concession to Russia, alienating still more U.S. allies in Poland and Czechoslovakia, he apparently got nothing in return other than the possibility that Russia might assist in future negotiations with Iran. This is not what one would call savvy negotiating. The only thing less comforting than this administration's weak negotiating skills is its apparent tactlessness. How do you announce you are backing out of a defense deal with Poland on the 70th anniversary of the day that the Russians and Germans invaded the country to start the second world war? Are they really this callous, or worse, ignorant? These arrogant people pride themselves on their intellectual superiority...where is it?

For their part the government of Poland reacted as you should well expect they would. They refused to to take Secretary Of State Hilliary Clinton's calls. The Czech and Polish governments put themselves out on a limb to be supportive of the United States, and this is their reward? Interestingly, although this decision is an offense to the governments of these countries, the people themselves actually approve of this decision. It is their fear that allowing such a system to be deployed on their territory would make them a desirable target for terrorists.

If there is one thing you can count on, it is the consistency of European cowardice. We have seen their willingness to appease aggressors lead to disaster time and again in the last century. Yet they not only fail to learn from those disasters, they also fail to remember the lesson of Ronald Reagan. In the 1980's, at the peak of the cold war, he deployed medium range nuclear missiles in West Germany...and oh how the people did complain. Once again, they argued it would increase the likelihood of war. What happened? Ten years later both the missiles AND the Soviet Union were gone, without a shot being fired. Peace through strength is the only thing that will prevent a war. Weakness will always provoke an aggressor to strike. Unfortunately cowardice comes too easily to the European. Too bad.

Our "Appeaser in Chief'" should have insisted on one very important concession from Russia. His failure to do so has guaranteed war. The Russians have agreed to sell Iran anti-aircraft missiles. Obama should have insisted that the sale be canceled in exchange for betraying our allies. He insisted on nothing and bowed to the Kremlin's wishes. Those anti-aircraft missiles are for the purpose of defending Iran from a potential strike by Israel on their nuclear facilities. Failure to get that sale stopped, combined with the IAEA report claiming Iran can now build an atomic weapon, makes it imperative that Israel strike sooner rather than later. Rhetoric like this doesn't help either:

"The pretext (Holocaust) for the creation of the Zionist regime (Israel) is false ... It is a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim.
Confronting the Zionist regime is a national and religious duty. This regime (Israel) will not last long. Do not tie your fate to it ... This regime has no future. Its life has come to an end."
- Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Sept. 18, 2009

Israel knows those weapons have but one purpose, their annihilation. They will strike, and they will strike first. They must. But that will present several problems. Last year the Democratically controlled Congress blocked the sale of several "bunker buster" bombs to Israel. They thought that, by depriving Israel of these deep penetrating conventional weapons, they could discourage a war with Iran. However, for Israel, this is about survival. Denying Israel the use of these weapons does not reduce the likelihood of military action. It just forces them to use different munitions. Israel dares not risk a failed attack, or one that does not significantly disable Iran's nuclear capability. With hardened facilities buried deep underground, you need devastating firepower. Thanks to the shortsighted actions of the Democrats in Congress, Israel may be forced to use nuclear weapons to destroy their targets. Consider the ramifications of that.

In any event, an Israeli attack will lead to worldwide condemnation of Israel, and likely, a worldwide counter-attack via terrorism. Decades of acquiescence to Islamic immigration will envelope Europe in a firestorm of internally delivered attacks. Perhaps it is the just reward for their perpetual cowardice. Such attacks will certainly find their way to the United States as well. After all, the President has been in a rush to dismantle the apparatus that the previous administration built to protect us after the September 11, 2001 attacks. Fortunately, this time, the terrorists will have adequate legal representation in the event they get caught.

Israel has the capacity to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities, but can they, or will they, attempt to destroy all of Iran's military assets? Almost certainly not. The consequences of an Israeli attack will be the certainty that the Iranian navy will close the Persian Gulf, shutting off the oil supply to the West. Welcome to world war. Oil prices will spike the world over from the instantaneous shortages this will create. Someone will have to reopen the Persian Gulf. Conventional wisdom says that "someone" will have to be the United States.

But in the Obama administration there is no place for either convention or wisdom. The crisis that will occur when the oil spigot is cut off will have spectacularly useful repercussions to an administration that doesn't believe a crisis should be allowed to go to waste. Therefore, there is no guarantee that Obama will give the order to reopen the Persian Gulf. Failure to do so will definitely prolong the crisis and almost certainly will have the effect of suffocating every Western economy. If the crisis can be prolonged long enough, it may prove fatal. Not a bad days work if you are not only the president of the most powerful economy on earth, but also the president of the Karl Marx/Che Guevara fan club. Considering the economic decisions this administration has made thus far, such a crisis could be irresistible. For a man with Obama's ego, the opportunity to rebuild the world in his own image may be too much of a temptation. To hell with the rest of us.

GENESIS 27:29 Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

And yet there is another possibility. One that may be the most diabolical of them all. For Israel to have any chance of succeeding in its' primary objective of destroying Iran's nuclear facilities, it must have the element of surprise on its' side. If it trusts the Obama administration, and there is no reason that it should, Israel may, as a courtesy, notify Washington of its' intentions. Israel may, however, choose not to tell Washington in advance since the Obama administration, unlike Bush's, is not likely to offer any assistance.

In either event, the United States has plenty of military assets in the region that will be able to detect that such a strike is underway. I propose that, given this administration's tendency to cater to the Muslim world, it is very possible Obama will tip off the Iranian's that such an attack is coming and from where. After all, have you ever seen a nation more determined to switch sides in all of its commitments, both internationally and domestically, than this one? This will guarantee that the Israeli attack fails. Perhaps, in return, Obama will extract a promise from Iran not to close the Persian Gulf...but only by betraying one of our our closest allies. Of course, who but a naive negotiator like Obama could trust the government in Tehran to keep such an agreement? Muslim history is full of backstabbing.
If you think I am just an alarmist and talking out of my hat consider this conversation with Zbigniew Brzezinski, Obama's top foreign policy adviser, United States National Security Adviser to President Jimmy Carter, and notorious anti-Semite in an interview with the Daily Beast:

Daily Beast: How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?

Brzezinski: We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?

Daily Beast: What if they fly over anyway?

Brzezinski: Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse.

To the contrary, there are plenty on the far left, particularly among Reverend Wright style Black Liberationists, who would be delighted to see a battle between the United States and Israel. This is the conversation happening in the White House right now. Obama's top adviser in this very matter is encouraging a military confrontation against our ally Israel in defense of our enemy Iran. And you thought it couldn't get worse. If you voted for change in the last election, you certainly got it!

"Under section 370 of the House Of Representatives Rules and Manual it has been held that a member of the house cannot refer to the President as “giving aid and comfort to the enemy.” Yet, as he alienates our allies and coddles our enemies, it would appear he is doing just that. And you know what that means...WAR!

But whose side are we on? Ask Poland and Czechoslovakia. They know...and Israel is soon going to find out.

Matters Of Life And Death


"But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy." - 2 Chronicles 36:16

Where were you when the line was crossed? Do you know what you were doing when the man who calls himself the President of the United States elevated himself to the status of God? Did you even notice or were you too busy with some other menial task to allow yourself to appreciate this monumental moment? This kind of thing used to happen a lot in ancient times when entire populations were believers in many gods. It's not so much of an occurrence in the age of reason and monotheism. Declaring yourself to be a god, however, is not quite the same as elevating yourself to the status of THE God. Although, to be fair, the ambition is the same whether you are Caligula or Obama. Behold, the most preposterous, and blasphemous, statement ever made by a President of the United States:

“We are God’s partners in matters of life and death.” - President Barack Obama

It doesn't take many words to condemn an entire society. Perhaps President Obama has shown himself to be be as intellectual and eloquent as his propagandists would have us to believe by showing such brevity in his ascension to god status. Surely these words, and the incredible lack of public outrage to them, condemn all of us. Have you ever heard a believer (remember, this man claims to be a Christian) be so presumptuous as to say we’re “partners” with God on ANY question? Yet he dares utter this in defense of a government program that’s got people worried about “death panels” and taxpayer supported abortions.

In truth, a partnership is actually a nice framework for "The Anointed One’s" position on both abortion and bureaucratic panels that will determine who gets treatment and who does not in the fantasy land of "universal health care." Unfortunately "I Am" is relegated to the status of junior partner in this relationship as only "The Anointed One" has the legal power to exercise a veto or sign a law. The godless press may have to reconsider their atheism in light of Obama's new status. I would imagine Lucifer must be so envious of Obama succeeding where he failed!

You have to give Obama and the Democrats credit for their predictability. Once Health Care Reform lost favor with the public on its merits, or rather its lack of them, they resorted to every childish trick in their toy-box to demonize their opponents. They were quick to accuse opponents of Health Care Reform of being purveyors of false information, even as, time and again, the opponents were shown to be justified. In fact, time and again, it has been shown that supporters of Health Care Reform, especially lawmakers in congress, are the ones who have been guilty of misrepresenting the facts. Unfortunately, for them, the town hall meetings across America have shown that the public is better informed on the details of the various proposals than their legislators.

Of course, every child knows that when he is confronted with an idea he doesn't like he must ridicule the bearers of such ideas by calling them every bad name he can think of. The law of the sandbox has been on display as opponents of Health Care Reform have been derided as "astroturf" in an attempt to degrade the sincerity of their opposition. This, in spite of the fact that supporters of Health Care Reform arrive in buses, wearing uniforms and carrying professionally made signs! There just hasn't been enough of them to counter the ever growing number of opponents to Health Care Reform. Hypocrisy is, of course, another indicator of the underdeveloped minds of children. When criticized, you can also accuse your opponents of being "Brownshirts," as our illustrious Speaker of The House Of Representatives chose to do. You've got to enjoy a good Nazi metaphor. This likewise has a certain hypocritical flair to it as you come to see how much the Health Care Reform proposals resemble those of a certain central European Nation circa the 1930's. I'll let you guess which one.

If your opposition still fails to wither from these initial confrontations you can always go to the tried and true formula of racial racketeering. Since the President is a black man, anyone who would dare oppose his policies must be a racist. You've got to love the consistency of these people. Unfortunately the profitability of racial racketeering may be coming to an end. It reached its zenith with the election, as the vast majority of white Americans gave themselves a "feel good" moment by electing a black president and, in their minds, signaling the beginning of a post-racial America. Apparently the Democrats didn't view things the same way. To them it was the triumphant moment of their greatest exploitation of a black man to serve their own political ends. It really doesn't matter who was right. The parasites that have been feeding off of white America's guilt have killed their host, as parasites are prone to do. There is no more guilt left to consume. Americans turn on their Presidents often. Calling opponents of Health Care Reform racists has only made their opposition stronger.

So who wouldn't turn to God when all else failed? The President, in his desperation, went to play the morality card that was once the first one that progressives would play back in the first half of the twentieth century. In those times, people actually believed in God without question. Modern progressives find playing the "God" card leaves a bad taste in their atheistic mouths. But hey, these are desperate times. So out comes Obama rehashing his usual arguments about being our brother's keeper (which begs the question: what is Obama doing for his own brother?) and taking care of "the least among us." Predictable rhetoric from a predictably adolescent mind...but then he got carried away:

"We are God's partner in matters of life and death" -President Obama

Wow! I think he misunderstood his instructions. Instead of turning to God, he turned into one. It doesn't get any better the more times you hear it but, before you simply dismiss our president as a pompous ass, idiot or the anti-christ, consider this: God seems to be holding up his end of the partnership! How else to you explain the "coincidence" of senator Ted Kennedy, champion of Health Care as a "right" of every citizen, being called home just the next week? Certainly that had to be "divine intervention"...didn't it? The Senator's body was still warm when less than an hour from his passing Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were, all too predictably, attempting to use his death to inspire Democrats to rally around the deflating debacle of Health Care Reform. Naturally they suggested naming the bill in honor of the fallen Senator...all to no avail. Still the American people refuse to buy into a government run system for health care. And like Children, the progressives that have infested and consumed the Democratic party just won't accept "no" as an answer.

Alas, what the President needs is a distraction. Something to divert the public's attention away from Health Care Reform while they retool their message and try again. I know, lets launch an investigation into detainee abuse by the CIA. That worked really well the first time they suggested it back in April...oh wait...that didn't work so well did it? It kind of made Dick Cheney look like the man we should have elected as President instead of the Marxist teenager we're stuck with now. Well, at least it will keep the far left wackos occupied while he figures out how to sneak a government controlled public option for health care past a public that doesn't want it.

So where does our glorious leader go from here? Like a reprobate teenager he will just change the wording of the bill slightly and repackage it as something new...which it won't be. The President and his advisers are convinced that Health Care Reform's lack of popularity is a communication failure, rather than a problem of substance, so expect a barrage of new and improved propaganda...but the same old bill.

Senator John Kerry got things rolling in a big way with his appearance on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopolous. Over the last year Democrats have claimed the number of uninsured Americans to be 47 million. Of course this dubious number is a lie that includes not only 12 million illegal aliens but also wealthy people who choose not to be insured as well as those who are qualified to get insurance but CHOOSE not to get it. Since this number of uninsured Americans failed to persuade the insured majority of the country to see the need to sabotage their health insurance in favor of the new proposals, Senator Kerry "improved" the number of uninsured Americans to 87 million! So there you have it. The new improved message is simply to tell bigger lies.

It stands to reason that bigger lies would also include stepping up the more aggressive elements of the Obama persuasion campaign. Hence this wonderful statement from Organizing For America:

---* The Event consists of ALL OF US Making Two Phone Calls on one particular, single day.
---* We call each of our State Senators (phone numbers are below) on that day.

What day? Our US Senators return to DC the Tues after Labor Day. That next FRIDAY, Sep 11, is Patriot Day, designated in memory of the nearly three thousand who died in the 9/11 attacks.

All 50 States are coordinating in this – as we fight back against our own Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.

DO YOU WANT to ensure passage of the Public Plan? Since 75% of Americans support it, I guess it's time for us Seventy-Five Percenters to be heard. Why Public Plan? = Because It’s American To Take Care Of Our Own!

So 75% of Americans support a public plan? Like Senator Kerry, they are simply telling a bigger lie. And what of the name calling? Right Wing Domestic Terrorists? Treacherous leaders? Most people recognize a tantrum when they see one. We shouldn't fail to recognize the hypocrisy of calling Fox News a propaganda network when all of the rest of the media fawn over and worship the President and his socialist sycophants. They invested everything in Obama, and his failure will be their doom. The only capital a news agency has is its credibility, and virtually every media outlet in this country cast its pearls before the swine that is this President and his administration. Neither Obama the President, nor Obama the God can save this cast of unsavory characters from the growing wrath of the American people.

During the election, Pastor Rick Warren asked our future President when he thought life began. After he thought about it, Obama decided it was above his pay grade to answer the question. Perhaps the Pastor ought to give Obama a call. I would think one of the fringe benefits of a partnership with God would be knowing exactly when life begins. Especially considering that this partnership is based on matters of life and death.
