Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty

Vodpod videos no longer available.

On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton, a noted climate change skeptic, gave a presentation at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. In this 4 minute excerpt from his speech, he issues a dire warning to all Americans regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty, scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.Lord Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore’s film “An Inconvenient Truth” from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering 9 serious errors in the film to be corrected. Lord Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educating the public about the myth of global warming.

We know why the global warming crowd has been pushing this whole screed on us.

It has been and is about global control.

You in the US are about to lose your country to tyranny, and it is at a point where I don’t think it’s possible to stop it – too many people are asleep to what is happening.  I’m often sad at seeing what is happening.

The very fact Obama was able to get into power is a pretty good indication of the spiritual condition of America.   Don’t get me wrong – this is not an anti America rant.   I love the American that was, and I have many good friends among you – mainly in the Bible belt, naturally.  Heh.

Indeed, it may be in God’s purpose that it not be stopped.   There has to be a point of God’s judgment, both in the US and in all western countries – we have all to a larger or smaller degree turned our backs on the Lord.


“This isn’t my country anymore.” by Heidi.

Heidi has written an excellent article on the value of family and each individual on her ‘Pebblechaser’ blog.

An excerpt:

The point is this: It is not within my power to determine the quality or effect of the life of a person. The soul shines through regardless of length or our ridiculous notions of quality. God’s breath in each person as their days are meted out according to His schedule. Not mine. Never mine.

Life is precious. All of it, from the beginning to the end. It is a circle that must be seen. Must be protected. Must be insured. So we don’t forget where we come from and where we are headed.

Euthanasia is a frightful and dreadful concept that slaughters the weak. It is the evil twin of abortion and a perversion of compassion at such a degree it makes me ill. Both are concepts supported in large by the young, healthy and self-absorbed and ones by which our bloated, decrepit and vile society will be judged.

But that’s not the country I grew up believing in. That isn’t the society I was excited to bring my sons into not all that long ago.

I look at the political landscape, the talking heads, the frantic screams from both sides and I truly don’t know where we, as a country, are headed. But I know this.

It doesn’t feel like my country any more.

She writes so well and touchingly of the value of each person in a family, and I have no doubt that most of my readers will find themselves in complete agreement.

Each person’s life has intrinsic value, which makes what Obama and his administration are attempting to do so terribly, terribly evil.   I pray and hope they will not succeed.

And it’s happening here in Australia, too.  Not as fast, but all the signs are evident.   The dumbing down of our society, the rampant socialism in our education system, and oh! that great destroyer of our society – political correctness.    Australia is no longer the land I once knew, either.

Obama Slyly Maneuvers for Socialism

From an article at Newsmax

(Hat tip to Tim Birdnow at Birdblog for this lead.)

President Obama showed his hand this week when The New York Times wrote that he is considering converting the stock the government owns in our country’s banks from preferred stock, which it now holds, to common stock.

This seemingly insignificant change is momentous. It means that the federal government will control all of the major banks and financial institutions in the nation. It means socialism.

The Times dutifully dressed up the Obama plan as a way to avoid asking Congress for more money for failing banks. But the implications of the proposal are obvious to anyone who cares to look.

So, if Obama gets away with this, it will mean that at a stroke of the pen the USA will have become a socialist country – no longer a democracy or republic as your founders envisioned it.

I’ve been watching since Obama has become President and have been appalled at just swiftly the USA is heading towards becoming a tyranny.  It seems to me from reading around the blogs and the forums I visit that quite a few people are aware of whats happening but feel powerless to do anything about it.   But we should, by prayer and actions that speak from repentance towards God.   Most other actions done apart from that may be good from a purely human point of view but are still just a band aid without that spiritual dimension added.   I mean, the whole reason your country, and the UK, and us here in Australia (all in the same sinking boat) are in such trouble is because we turned away from God in the first place.  And to add to our judgement all our administrations are turning more and more against Israel, which is a sure road to full judgement from God.  We need to be active in whatever way we can that may delay God’s judgement against us all, and in the end only repentance can do that.

The Drumbeat

By William Staneski

What a great piece this is, forcefully stating the forces of unGodliness arrayed against the Judeo/Christian based societies of the west.   Saw it at Ace’s place.

Excerpts.\:

The drumbeat. It’s always there. Day and night. Rain or shine. Winter or Summer. Sunday or Monday. It comes at you from every direction. It comes over the TV, the radio, at work, at school, in music, in the newspapers, from the politicians, in conversation with others, even in church. It wears you down. It robs you of the will to resist its message. Even short-lived victories, which stop it briefly, leave you with the knowledge that it will return; each minor victory bound to be lost to the redoubled efforts of this patient and persistent force. You can’t escape it. It never stops. It never gives up. It never ends. It rains upon you from every possible angle, from every possible source.


It’s the drumbeat of the left. It is political, philosophical, theological, and social. It pervades every activity. It is post-structural, post-modern, post-everything in the parlance of the day. It is tolerant, diverse, non-judgmental, non-discriminatory, egalitarian, politically correct, multicultural, globalist, and collectivist. It insists that there are no rights and wrongs, no moral absolutes. It turns everything upside down in its looking glass world. It denies the correctness of all that produced what our culture revered before the deconstruction of the world in accordance with the tenets of cultural Marxism.

The cultural Marxists convince us that the truth is that there is no truth. And even though this unresolvable paradox lies at the very center of all this, the constant drumbeat keeps the masses in line, anesthetized enough to not make an issue of it. Fed a constant diet of sex, drugs, poisonous pop culture, materialistic trinkets, and unkeepable promises of security provided by huge leftist government, ever more globalist in nature, the masses are diverted from realizing, as they are told there is no truth, that this claim itself is subject to the same test. It is logically impossible for the leftist drumbeat to be true by its own axioms.

If you believe that all this is a paranoid overreaction, you have plenty of company. Those of us who can still see the water and hear the drumbeat are subject to attempts to make us sound evil and foolish. To believe in traditional Western cultural values, American Exceptionalism, God, and moral truth is to be branded as old fashioned and foolish, even by the best assessments of those who have bought into the cultural Marxist’s message. And by the worst of them, we are branded as stupid and evil, and in need of being destroyed.

Read the whole thing.  A great piece, and an accurate summation of where our societies are headed.

Muslim Moles

When political correctness is allowed to dictate a country’s security policies, then it is on very dangerous ground, especially when it is dealing with a religious/political system as dangerous as Islam.

Homeland Security: In a sign background checks are far too lax, an alarming number of Arabs and Muslims have landed sensitive government jobs only to be caught later spying for the enemy.

Guarding against penetration by terrorist agents and sympathizers should be a top concern of public agencies, but it’s not. Guarding against charges of job discrimination is.

Multiculturalism and political correctness have made it easier for the terrorists to use Arabs and Muslims to infiltrate the government and steal security secrets.

Political correctness is a delusion.  Indeed it could be argued that it the ‘strong delusion’ the apostle Paul spoke of.

Paul said that in the last days, God will send ‘strong delusion’ to those left behind after the Restrainer is removed, “because they received not the LOVE of the truth, that they might be saved.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:10)

It wasn’t truth that they lacked, it was the LOVE of the truth. That is pretty good definition of political correctness. If the truth doesn’t fit, change the truth till it does.   By the way, this definition of political correctness I got from The Omega Letter, a subscription based email newsletter I get daily and written by Jack Kinsella.

The terrible effects of political correctness..

I was talking with my friend after we had enjoyed a great evening dinner together.

We were discussing the craziness of the US’s decision to allow Ahminajihad into the country – let alone giving him some kind of legitimacy by allowing him to speechify his brand of lunacy.

In a less political correct era of not too long ago they would not have allowed it and it shows just how political correctness has grown to the point of cutting off the balls of our western societies. Now we’re well and truly finding ourselves in the beginnings of dhimmitude to Islam. All these things because we’re not allowed to offend the offenders. Because this foolishness requires everyone to believe the world-view that humanity is basically good, rather than as the Bible declares, basically sinful. This kind of thinking believes that if we just talk with our enemies long enough we can persuade them of a better way of life, it never occurring to them that they just may never want that – that true evil exists and that it’s only aim is to destroy that which is good.

I honestly believe that PC was deliberately introduced and that it’s deliberate aim is to change our language and our beliefs from a once Christian world-view to a totally Godless and purely humanistic world-view as per the advance of the Antichrist’s coming regime. Its purpose is also to weaken the ability to think properly. Hell, we only have to observe what’s happening in far too many government schools to see that in operation.

Here’s something that occurred to me while we were discussing these things. Remember how the Bible says (in essence) that man will come to call evil good and good evil. Well, if you stop to think about it, isn’t this what PC does? It reverses the true meanings of nearly all issues where it’s allowed to rear its ugly head.

Apart from this subject, I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting much recently. Basically the truth is I lost interest to a great degree.

UPDATE:

Mike, your pointer to Antonio Gramsci was very illuminating. I found an excellent article on Free Republic by Alberto Luzárraga, here. Worth a read, for sure. It would definitely appear he is the founder of PC, and therefore your country’s Democrats! *grin*

They have forsaken the Lord

One of the excellent Christian newsletters I get regularly is The Berean Call. The most recent one which I find striking a deep bell within me is titled “They Have Forsaken the Lord”, laying down in plain unapologetic language just how far off the path and down the road to destruction we as societies are.

Excepts:

Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. — Isaiah 1:4-7

Most of us fail to grasp the depths of depravity into which the United States—and the world––are rapidly sinking, provoking a merciful and patient God to judgment. The evidence is overwhelming. Yet we’re blinded to the truth like the proverbial frog in the pot that is slowly, by small degrees, being brought to a boil. Deceit is everywhere, and lies pass for truth. The major promoter of abortion calls itself Planned Parenthood. By what perverted logic can a husband and wife who deliberately murdered in the womb what would have been their baby be called its “parents”? Shouldn’t the organization that inspired and assisted in this foul deed rather be called “Planned No Parenthood”?
Murder in the womb is cloaked under the innocuous label of “Pro-choice” while at the same time denying any choice to the victim. The “Campaign for Healthy Families” was the group that defeated a proposed ban on abortions in South Dakota. To what “healthy family” do aborted babies belong? In 2006, the National Abortion Federation complained that the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act would “impose…burdens on teens seeking abortion” by requiring minors to get parental notification to cross state lines in order to get one!1
And how do teens get into this predicament? By the immorality held up in a wicked society as a desirable sign of “maturity.” To brainwash teenagers with the lie that they can get away with anything that is their choice is evil. God no longer is allowed to have any opinion in the world He made! Our choice overrides His. America has “forsaken the Lord” and is sowing the seeds of its destruction. God cannot withhold His judgment without becoming a partner in our sins.
Between 1960 and 1990, out-of-wedlock births in the USA increased more than 500 percent (from 5.3 percent to 28 percent), single-parent families tripled, about 50 million babies were murdered in the womb, and violent crimes increased 500 percent. About 16,000 crimes occur on or around school campuses each day! In 2005, 37 percent of births were to unwed mothers, up from 36 percent in 2004 and 28 percent in 1990. The report stated that “The overall rise reflects the burgeoning number of people who are putting off marriage or are living together without getting married.” Are these the “Healthy Families” that the amoral campaign of that name is building by supporting abortion?
Homosexuals not only flaunt their sin in public, they are fêted, wooed, indulged, and thanked by politicians for their votes. It’s Sodom and Gomorrah again––or worse! In January 2007, Christian Vanneste, an MP in France’s ruling party was fined nearly $4,000 for saying that homosexuality is “inferior to heterosexuality” and would be “dangerous for humanity if it was pushed to the limit.” Of course, these are the facts. But daring to express the undeniable truth unleashes the wrath of police and courts in their zeal to protect the feelings of a favored class that complains of being offended.
Homosexuals and lesbians don’t procreate as God commanded mankind to do. The Creator’s very first commandment to Adam and Eve was, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…” (Gn 1:28). “Gays” defy God’s very first words to mankind. They seek not children but pleasure, to the exclusion of all else. And in their self-absorbed folly, they taunt us with “gay pride.” Are they proud that their lifestyle is not only “dangerous” (it shortens the lifespan by 24 years2) but that it would abruptly end the human race if universally adopted? What madness supports this celebrated perversion?

The liberalism of England’s universities, media, and courts undermined any sense of God-given morality that had barely survived from the days of Luther and Calvin. “Multiculturalism” is the new faith—a multiculturism that embraces every religion and creed. There is, however, one exception: the culture of the host country, England. Why? Because it is Western and has a Christian heritage. That, above all, is not acceptable. Islam most assuredly is in, and Christianity is out.
In fact, it was the rejection of Christianity that opened Britain to the amoral liberalism prevalent in its courts, media, and universities that now favors Muhammad over Christ and is sowing the seeds of its own destruction.
The most disheartening—even frightening—experience each time one returns to Britain and Europe is to see firsthand the evidence of the “new reformation” sweeping those countries and the world today. A fresh Islamic invasion (already far more effective than the military invasion that was turned back at Poitier-Tours in 732 and Vienna in the 18th century) is changing the face of England, France, Holland, Germany, and the other countries that supported the first Reformation. The new privileged “minority” are the Muslim immigrants, many of whom have come in obedience to Muhammad’s command (which all Muslims everywhere are obligated to obey in the name of Allah and Islam) to take over the entire world by violence, if necessary. They mostly refuse to be integrated into the societies they invade, retaining their own customs and language, while demanding “rights” (including welfare support of multiple wives) from the country they intend to destroy. The protection of the West’s liberal laws assists
terrorists in the commanded takeover. Imam Abu Baseer, a leading religious supporter of al-Qaeda, confessed: “One of the goals of immigration is the revival of the duty of jihad and enforcement of their power over the infidels.” Immigration and jihad go together. Christianity and Christ may be mocked in the West, but no word must be whispered (for fear of violent reprisals) against Islam. One city in England is already 75 percent Muslim and has a Muslim mayor. Non-Muslims move out, property values plummet, allowing more Muslims to move in at bargain prices. Islamists boast that they will eventually have a string of Muslims-only cities in a crescent shape stretching across the heartland of England. They insist that this “crescent” will be ruled by sharia (Islamic law), as in Saudi Arabia, where women are publicly stoned to death (if the family doesn’t kill them first) for “allowing” themselves to be raped; no non-Muslim place of worship may be built; those who convert from Islam to any other religion are beheaded; and Islamic law rules an Islamic state. This is Islam’s intent for the entire world.

The underlying message in the classroom is that there is no historical truth at all, and whatever had happened in the past [including the crucifixion of Christ for our sins and His resurrection] was only a matter of opinion….At the heart of this unpicking of national identity lies a repudiation of Christianity, the founding faith of the nation and the fundamental source of its values, including its…profound love of liberty….For the secular elite, Britain is now a “post-Christian society; and insofar as this is not yet the case, this elite is determined to make it so. Under the rubric of multiculturalism and promoting “diversity,” local authorities and government bodies are systematically bullying Christianity out of existence….12
Whether in the world or the church, we see much the same thing happening in America. Anything is acceptable—except biblical Christianity. Public schools accommodate witches, homosexuals, and Muslims promoting their beliefs and practices. But Christianity, in the name of freedom, is outlawed. Let us not give up the fight for biblical truth, earnestly contending for the faith, once for all delivered to the saints.

There’s not much I would be able to say any better except that to say I’m in agreement with it.

it should be pointed out that that Isaiah 1:4-7 is referring to Israel, but by extension can refer to any country that has turned it’s back on it’s Christian roots.

If I didn’t have faith that God is in control, I would be very scared at just how fast all this is happening now. But for Christians it’s evidence of the Lord’s soon returning. Come soon Lord Jesus!

UK: Children face criminal checks from the cradle

Does anyone else find this to be as monstrous as I do?

I don’t believe Australia is far behind, or the US either.

Excerpt:

Checks will be made on all children to identify potential criminals under an extension of the “surveillance state” announced by Tony Blair.

A Downing Street review of law and order also foreshadowed greater use of sophisticated CCTV, an expanded DNA database and “instant justice” powers for police.

The review is intended to chart a course for the next 10 years by focusing more “on the offender, not the offence”.

We’ve lost so much freedom to the creeping regulations of government, often couched in terms which make it seem it’s for our good. And since such regulations give a false impression of safety and security to the general population, it’s accepted at face value more often than not. But the problem with increased big brother regulation is that it actively encourages irresponsible living in too many cases (I’m mainly talking about welfare statism here). Think of anything that you might want to do where your house or property is concerned. You have to get a permit, right? You want to educate your children yourself via homeschooling? Frowned on at the very least. Here in West Australia you can do it (still, but for how long?) but it must be supervised by government. It’s illegal in Germany and most of you would have heard of the recent taking away of a girl from a family who’s only ‘crime’ was to homeschool. Look up ‘Agenda 21’ on the UN site – you’ll find the intent there is to eventually regulate all movements of any populace.
And there are so many more instances – you only have to do a little research with an open mind to see what’s going on. The world is clearly being readied for world government.

Come soon Lord Yeshua.
