“And then somebody — I don’t remember who it was — turned and said, ‘You know what? What about Gibbs’ tie? What about Gibbs’ tie? That might look good.’ And, frankly, Robert didn’t want to give it up because he thought he looked really good in the tie. But eventually he was willing to take one for the Gipper, and so he took off his tie, and I put it on. And that’s the tie that I wore at the national convention.”
It’s a nice story. But Obama is not “The Gipper.” Perhaps if you pronounced the word differently, with a soft “g” sound… now that title fits, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I think that brings disrepute to gypsies, my apologies.
But the definition sticks… one who defrauds or one who swindles…

The Democrats have sent in the light infantry. (Hey speech police, are we still allowed to type that?)
Texas Congresswoman and Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee really took it to the Republicans and their attempts to repeal healthcare reform recently.
Among Ms. Lee’s comments was a gem calling the repeal unconstitutional! “The Fifth Amendment speaks specifically to denying someone their life and liberty without due process,” she declared.
She continued, “Can you tell me what’s more unconstitutional than taking away from the people of America their Fifth Amendment rights, their Fourteenth Amendment rights, and the right to equal protection under the law?”
So stealing people’s sweat and treasure to pay for someone else to have healthcare is a-okay?
Hmmm… really, now!
This just makes for more late-night laughs, as the information superhighway is strewn with the wreckage of reckless, ill-informed commentary from Congresswoman Lee. You may occasionally stumble upon one of her myriad attempts at “clarifying” her comments. Hey, thanks Al Gore!Print This Post Filed under government, health, news, views | Tags: government, Healthcare, Obamacare, repeal | Comments Off on Rep.

- a fleet of 34 warships, including 2 aircraft carriers
- 250 U.S. business executives
- 6 university presidents
- 9 passenger aircraft
- 45 armored limousines
- 30 elite sniffer dogs

- 1 American president and his family
- 3 days in Mumbai
The cost? Nobody knows for sure, the White House is mum. Some have claimed $200 million per day! Regardless, it’s all on borrowed money. The problem is, nobody will loan the U.S. anymore. So to finance our debt, we buy our own treasuries. That means you and I pay for this trip.
The result? The American people are being taxed an additional $600 billion this week! Yep, by the end of November, today’s dollar will buy 20% less than it does today.
One interesting thing in the article I noticed from The Daily Mail. Not only is there a vast display of military might that goes before this president… but he is to travel in a secure vehicle named “the beast.” Interesting name, that.
He is the president of the United States, who at times acts foolishly, and then again, like royalty. But then, I can’t help thinking about the name of that car.
Pray for the president, our congress and other officials. Pray first that they are saved, and ask for them to have wisdom, and to use the wisdom in righteousness.Print This Post Filed under government, news, views | Tags: End Times, government, inflation, president, tough times, United States | Comments Off on President, King, Fool or Something Else
Today, 2 November 2010 is election day in the United States. Please EDUCATE yourself on the candidates and issues and then go cast a ballot.
If you do not understand, or have not researched the candidates… PLEASE STAY HOME. Casting a ballot in ignorance can be dangerous to your well-being.
And if you are a Christian… pray today for your country, whether or not it is in the U.S. Pray for your leaders to follow God and to receive wisdom from on Him. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
God has blessing available for all!Print This Post Filed under government, news | Tags: duty, God, government, Vote | Comment (1)
What is it with our elected representatives?
Why is there such a push to deny the Creator?
In my opinion, if you deny God, you must also irrationally deny absolutes. The United States is soon to be relegated to the pages of history, especially when the country is led by those who deny even the existence of God.
But, our elected officials have long ago denied the authority of God, first in their personal lives, that then influences their public life and decisions in leading the republic.
This is just a symptom and not the problem. The real problem is the authority of God needs to be present in our society. That authority is being attacked. In fact, it has been attacked for more than 100 years. The attack is on God’s word, and whether it can be trusted.
Watch as Betty McCollum, Dem – Minnesota, leads from the floor of the U.S. House in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. She deletes the words “under God” from the “Pledge of Allegiance.” The representative has said in explanation she was taking a breath. You be the judge, I know what my eyes see.
The authority of God’s word still stands… some verses do not speak well, if applied to our nation.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord – Psalm 33:12a
Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord! – Psalm 144:15b
While these promises do apply to Israel directly, they do in general speak to a principal. One that has guided our founding fathers. They knew Who bestows our individual rights .
But Proverbs 14:34 hammers the principle home. It says:
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.
Long has righteousness departed the leadership of this nation. And our national sin is plainly evident. We have slowly removed God from almost every institution of public life. When He is gone… and government becomes God… who will then bestow rights to you?
Don’t count on the government being benevolent… the early 20th century destroys the notion of a benevolent government “god.”
As for those who would deny God… I will leave you with one sobering thought. It is one that must make us shudder with fear. It IS a promise that we can claim, because God will keep it. It is found in Mark 8:34-38, Jesus is speaking.
And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”
Paul explains this section well in one sentence in 2 Timothy 2:12. He says, “if we deny him, he also will deny us.”
Good news, though, there is grace available for everyone, including Ms. McCollum. That same Jesus Who we would deny, will accept us just as we are. However, we must first repent and cling to the same God we now deny.Print This Post Filed under CULTure, government, news, views | Tags: congress, CULTure, God, government, Jesus, the lie | Comment (1)
“This is a statement that was read over the PA system at the football game at Roane County High School, Kingston, Tennessee by school Principal Jody McLoud, on September 1, 2000.
I thought it was worth sharing with the world, and hope you will forward it to all your friends. It clearly shows just how far this country has gone in the wrong direction.
“It has always been the custom at Roane County High School football games to say a prayer and play the National Anthem to honor God and Country. Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law.
As I understand the law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it an alternate lifestyle, and if someone is offended, that’s OK.
I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity by dispensing condoms and calling it safe sex. If someone is offended, that’s OK.
I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a viable means of birth control.
If someone is offended, no problem.
I can designate a school day as earth day and involve students in activities to religiously worship and praise the goddess, mother earth, and call it ecology.
I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depict people with strong, traditional, Christian convictions as simple minded and ignorant and call it enlightenment.
However, if anyone uses this facility to honor God and ask Him to bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, Federal Case Law is violated.
This appears to be at best, inconsistent and at worst, diabolical. Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone except God and His Commandments.
Nevertheless, as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to abide by rules which they do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise would be at best, inconsistent and at worst, hypocritical. I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.
For this reason, I shall, “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s,” and refrain from praying at this time.
However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise and thank God, and ask Him in the name of Jesus to bless this event, please feel free to do so. As far as I know, that’s not against the law—-yet.”
Tennessee High School Principal’s Remarks About Prayer at a Football Game-Truth!
here is a tweet from the president:
Notice that it will be streamed from barackobama.com/live, not from whitehouse.gov. Apparently the government approved website is not elite enough for our elitist in chief.
Ever the campaigner, he has to campaign for everything he wants to do, including moving America forward.
Mr President! When are you going to stop campaigning? You hoodwinked enough people to get the job you are uniquely unqualified to do. Instead of dismantling the American system, why do you not just do the job you have?
Stop being a lapdog for George Soros. Communism has failed everywhere it was attempted. The only purely communist regime left on the planet is North Korea and that is not exactly the kind of country ANYONE wants to live in.
Get out of the way and let America get back to being the greatest country on earth again.Print This Post Filed under government, news, News&Views, views | Tags: globalism, government, obama, politics, progressive | Comments Off on Tweet from Mr President
WHO IS HE?
Ever wondered why no one ever came forward from Obama’s past saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc. Not one person has ever come forward from his past.
VERY, VERY STRANGE…
This should really be a cause for great concern.
To those who voted for him, you have elected the biggest unqualifed fraud that America has ever known. Sort of adds credence to the idea of The Manchurian Candidate thing happening here!
George Stephanopoulos, of ABC News. said the same thing during the 2008 campaign. He too was a classmate of Obama’s at Columbia class of 1984. He said he never had a single class with him..
While he is such a great orator, why doesn’t anyone in Obama’s college class remember him? And, why won’t he allow Columbia to release his records?
NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA !
Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.
Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, “I don’t know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don’t have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia . EVER! Nobody recalls him.
Root adds that he was also, like Obama, “Class of ’83 political science, pre-law” and says, “You don’t get more exact or closer than that.” Never met him in my life, don’t know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack!
And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who’s kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him.”
Obama’s photograph does not appear in the school’s yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friend while at Columbia.
NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School , then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same class that Barack Hussein Obama was supposed to have been in.
Some Other Interesting Questions…
Why was Obama’s law license inactivated in 2002? Why was Michelle’s law license inactivated by Court Order?
It is circulating that according to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases. The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is never reported to have lived.
No wonder all his records are sealed!
We must go on and continue sending this out to everyone.

The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER This one is a little different ….
Two Different Versions …
Two Different Morals
OL D VERSION
The ant works
hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE OLD STORY: Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grass hopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green…’
ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, We shall overcome.
Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake.
President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.
Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the
grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper! and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
Be careful how you vote in 2010.
I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant not a grasshopper!
Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.
Don’t bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t understand it, anyway
A meeting held recently in Austria attended by the “elite,” has set in motion the agenda that will change the world until Jesus comes for His Church in the rapture. (I Thessalonians 4:17).
Expect three trends to happen fulfilling the 666 plan:
- The development of a global government. (6)
- The development of a global currency within a global economy. (6)
- The development of a global religion for peace. (6)
The “fundamental transformation” of the United States and every other country in the world has begun.
Born-again Bible believing Christians will be a remnant. Believers who follow the true Jesus and His Word will proclaim the truth in love and expose the “lie”. This will happen worldwide.
Christians can expect the following:
- The shocking collapse of many well respected “Christian” organizations.
- The development of a counterfeit bride for a counterfeit Christ (Revelation 17:1-9).
- Perilous times (2 Timothy chapter 3).
The counter prevention for Apostasy
- Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Psalms 122:6).
- Read 2 Timothy 4:1-8.
- Pray each day to be led by the Holy Spirit. (John 16:13).
- Proclaim the gospel. (2 Corinthians 4:3-5).
- Be a watchman for Jesus Christ. (Ezekiel 3:17).
- Be a good servant. (2 Timothy chapter 2).
- Read Colossians chapters 1 though 4
Sincerely in the name of Jesus Christ,
