Well, it looks like what everyone has always suspected is true…
We are in trouble today as nation, because we have strayed far from our Judaic/Christian values and roots!
I don’t at all blame Obama or anyone else in politics, who are outside of covenant relationship with God, and who don’t know God, for just doing what comes natural for ALL of us, in our flesh, and that is to look out of #1, and to blazes with everyone else!
After all, babies are born into this world every day singing “It’s all about me,” and so is it any wonder that our country is being run by men and women who never grew up, and never graduated beyond their childhood?
Of course what they are doing is self-serving; and they know the only way that they can get elected to office is by mirroring to the general public what they think we want to see and hear.
What we see today is exactly the result of what is termed situation ethics, where the ends justifies the means; and this is common not only in our government, at all levels; but also in our businesses and corporations too.
We the People need to repent, for having exchanged our faith in God for Mammon, and the lust for money and power.
We have a nation today where our politicians are motivated by hidden agendas, that are based on lies and deceit; and we have a country that is totally divided, that apparently has difficulty distinguish between right from wrong anymore… and so is it any wonder that we are in the mess we’re in?
This is what happens when the people have no moral compass; and who also admit openly that having good character and being honorable and trustworthy is no longer a prerequisite for being a politician… just as long as we have a healthy economy and are making money.
Well, as far as I can see our economy is in the toilet, and our unemployment rate has never been higher… so how is that going for us so far?
This lesson we learned from the Clinton Administration, and we are paying for it with Obama!
Now on this issue of whether or not Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim or not, the fruit he has exhibited all along, in his words, and his actions, as you can readily see in the above video, have demonstrated nothing else… it’s just that the people didn’t want to see it.
The problem we have in American today are the people who voted for Obama, and all those who are like him, into office; and what we see happening today in both our government and our economy is the result of the caliber of people we have chosen to lead our country.
Once again, I want to remind you that according to Islamic faith and ethics, lying is perfectly okay just as long as you are lying to your enemy, to their hurt and to your advantage.
These ethics have been demonstrated in every peace treaty with Israel, in that the Islamic Palestinians have broken their word and treaty every single time.
What America needs is a TOTAL housecleaning in Washington DC (aka The District of Columbia), and that is in both Houses of Congress, and in the White House!
For that matter, as far as I’m concerned, we could just build a fence around the entire Capitol, District of Columbia and all, and give it over to the International Bankers, since that is the only physical property that they have their lien on; and we can just open shop somewhere else, and elect honest men and women this time.
All of this just points out the absolute necessity and importance that the Church is doing her job, as commissioned by our Lord, in not only preaching the Gospel and discipling people; but also it is just as important that we make sure that we are correctly passing the baton on to the next generation, so that we don’t have these sorts of problems every few generations.
The current lot of politicians that we have, for the most part, are all evidence of how far we as a nation have strayed away from God; and the only solution that will save our nation is for us to turn around, as individuals and as nation, and repent.
Pray for America!

Obama, a ‘Strategic Catastrophe’
Although Israeli officials publicly play down the crisis in relations between Jerusalem and Washington, privately the language is much different. Sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu describe Obama as a “strategic catastrophe” for Israel.
Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office, speaking on condition of anonymity to the nation’s top newspapers, see the Obama administration as a serious threat to the future of the State of Israel. On the record, Israel and the US have a “strategic partnership that is unbreakable”; off the record, the terminology is blunt to say the least.
“President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have drawn a clear line, supporting the Palestinian position at the expense of Israel,” said one Netanyahu confidant. “It is insane, it is sick. Relations between Jerusalem and Washington are simply disastrous; the situation has never been so dangerous. This US President wants to establish a Palestinian state at any price and hand them Jerusalem on a silver platter.”
Netanyahu has repeatedly distanced himself from such statements, but commentators say the government speaks with a forked tongue. “Israel’s relations with the US are at a low point, and Obama poses a danger to Israel,” wrote Nahum Barnea in the nation’s biggest newspaper Yediot Ahronot.
The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel.
“The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.
That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term “Islamic extremism” no longer be used in official government documents and statements.
Furthermore, the US is now accusing Israel of harming American interests in the Middle East. General David Petraeus, the head of US Central Command, said Israel’s intransigence on resolving the conflict with the Palestinians is endangering US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Even the US Congress considers Obama’s behavior toward Netanyahu humiliating. Three-quarters of the House of Representatives, 337 of 435 members, signed a bipartisan letter to Clinton expressing “deep concern over recent tension” between the two countries, and demanding that it be smoothed over quickly and in private.
“Obama is a real problem for Israel,” a senior official told told Yediot. “He is Israel’s biggest strategic catastrophe.”
The newspaper also quoted another official who believes that for the first time Washington has switched sides. “The Obama White House is putting pressure only on Israel but does not expect anything from the Palestinians,” he said. “These American demands are unacceptable.”
“The Americans know very well that Israeli construction has always been happening in East Jerusalem and building in Jewish neighborhoods has never been frozen,” said another official. “The Americans use excuses like [the Jewish neighborhood of] Ramat Shlomo and the Shepherd Hotel [another Jewish building project in East Jerusalem] to confront Netanyahu.”
So during Passover, Netanyahu invited Nobel Prize-winning author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel to his private residence in Caesaria. He urged Wiesel, who is an American citizen, to make it clear to his good friend Obama how important Jerusalem is to the Jewish people.
“Jerusalem was, is and always will be the united capital of Israel,” said Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. “Construction in all parts of Jerusalem will continue.”
According to a poll by the Independent Media Review & Analysis, 70 percent of Israeli Jews oppose a construction freeze in East Jerusalem, compared to only 19 percent who support it. The survey also found that 69 percent believe the division of Jerusalem with international control of the Old City would lead to ongoing conflict rather than peace.
Officials in Netanyahu’s inner circle believe Obama’s strategy is to force a change of government in Israel. By forcing Israeli concessions on the “settlement” issue, hawks could bolt the coalition, pushing Netanyahu into an alliance with the dovish Kadima party. Kadima is led by former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who, under the previous Olmert government, offered the Palestinians an independent state in 97 percent of the disputed territories with a capital in East Jerusalem.
Obama has been buoyed by his domestic success in passing the historic health care reform bill. And he may believe that he can extend that victory to the international arena by resolving the Middle East conflict. But if Obama continues to underestimate Israeli resolve on Jerusalem, his peace efforts are doomed to failure.
