Muslims in 21st Century America: Part 23

“Is America Islamophobic?” August 30, 2010, Time Magazine

“Islam is like a wrench that moves in only one direction: theirs!”

“The so-called Muslim world exists because Islam took it over and systematically exterminated all other governments, religions and cultures—like the Borg in Star Trek,” a reader said. “Nothing has changed except that the Muslim world’s centuries-long de facto quarantine is ending and Muslims are coming into increased contact with non-Muslims.

“They bring their domination-superiority mindset with them, such as demanding a mega-mosque overlooking Ground Zero and naming it Cordoba,” said the reader. “So they can break ground for it in 2011 on the 1000th anniversary of the horrible Jewish pogrom in Cordoba, Spain.

Islam is known for infiltrating and destroying proud civilizations that underestimated them, and the last decade saw it begin assassinating Western politicians right on the street and intimidating Western governments, and press with demands that Muhammad not be insulted.”

“Who’s next, us?”

Sarah Palin would say, “You betcha!”

“Allah is an enemy of Uncle Sam and the U.S. Constitution and always will be, since he wants Sharia everywhere, even here,” said the reader.

“This is a nasty world, and freedom isn’t free. It starts with you, by studying up to Islam and its long, long history along with its ideology and terminology so you won’t be a softie for their advance men who are adept at Muslim disinformation.

“They push Islam as a ‘religion of peace’ mantra without adding that the only peace terms Allah accepts is total submission and Sharia.

“Muslim immigration must be stopped or else our children and grandchildren will pay the price.

Don’t let the liberal establishment shame you with talk of racism and intolerance.

Islam isn’t a race—it’s an ideology that’s taken over some races but wants them all. And Islam is the world’s most intolerant ideology – with them it’s like a rachet wrench that moves only in one direction, theirs.

In the August 30, 2010 Time Magazine, the editors ask if Americans feel Islamophobic?

Time editors ask a fair question. It’s being answered in the United Kingdom with balkanized and totally separated sections of London now fighting for its ‘British’ life among 2.4 million non-assimilating Muslims.

France cannot withstand its own immigrants in Paris where police cannot enter Muslim zones for fear of being killed.

Norway, Holland, Belgium and Sweden suffer horrific rapes, female genital mutilation, stonings, arranged marriages and honor killings by those same Islamic immigrants.

Today in America, we feature for the first time in history–honor killings, female genital mutilation and arranged marriages.

Re: “Is America Islamophobic?” August 30, 2010, Time Magazine

Wouldn’t you be Islamophobic when you saw what happened to France, UK, Sweden, Holland, Norway and Belgium as to their Muslim immigrants?! Islam counters everything in Western thought, actions and culture. We don’t arrange marriages for our daughters, push honor killings, cut off peoples’ hands, engage in female genital mutilation, stone women for minor infractions, make them wear burkas and stay home in the house with no rights, and we don’t condemn other religions by telling other believers to quote the Koran, “convert or kill all non-believers.” President Teddy Roosevelt said it best, “The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, or preventing all possibility of its continuing as a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities. We have but one flag. We have but one language, English.” Frosty Wooldridge, Golden, CO

MUSLIM HONOR KILLINGS IN 21ST CENTURY AMERICA

With Islam gaining an ever greater foothold in America, we will see more and more advocates for Sharia Law.

That which most Americans find distasteful and barbaric—already manifests in the United States with seven million Muslims.

We will see violent treatment of more and more women and suffer more and more court cases of Muslim men as they kill their wives and daughters for disobeying them. You can take a person out of a culture, but you cannot take the culture out of the person.

Fox News, January 1, 2008 reported a Muslim honor killing in Garrett, Texas when a 12 year old girl and her sister called 911, screaming, “My dad shot me; I am dying.”

She and her sister died before an ambulance arrived. Reason: father didn’t like them wearing western jeans and blouses. “Honor Killing in Texas” by Robert Spencer, 01/08/2008.

“Amina Said, 18, and her sister Sarah, 17, smile happily in one widely circulating photo, and Amina is wearing what looks like a sweatshirt bearing the name “AMERICAN.” But their fate may have been the herald of a new, disquieting feature of the American landscape: honor killing. Amina and Sarah were shot dead in Irving, Texas, on New Year’s Day. Police are searching for their father, Yaser Abdel Said, on a warrant for capital murder.”

In Clayton County, Georgia, January 26, 2009, a Pakistani immigrant father, Chaudry Rashid strangled his daughter for not accepting his choice of a husband.

She wanted a divorce. She was 14 when she died. “Man Accused Of Killing Daughter For Family Honor” by Jamie Tarabay of NPR.

“Honor killings are old rites of murder within families, committed because of some perceived dishonor or shame. The United Nations estimates around 5,000 deaths occur each year — mostly of women, mostly in South Asia and the Middle East.”

In New York, February 16, 2009, FOX News, Joshua Rhett Miller reported, “The estranged wife of a Muslim television executive feared for her life after filing for divorce last month from her abusive husband,” her attorney said — and was found beheaded Thursday in his upstate New York television studio.

Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37, was found dead on Thursday at the offices of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, N.Y., near Buffalo. Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, has reportedly been charged with second-degree murder.

America is today in the cross hairs of this Islamic agenda/revolution; and the same subtle methodology and tactics that have succeeded in Lebanon, and are moving forward today in the UK, in France, Sweden, Holland, Norway and in Belgium, is today moving forward and succeeding in the United States… and all the while America sleeps!

America today, it would seem, has been lolled into a false sense of security, and I don’t really know whether it is because of the lying liberal media that says all is well, that everything is getting better, and there are no real problems, except for the ones they make a point to talk about; or whether it is because so many people today are just so buried in their own problems, fighting alligators in their own swamp, that they can’t or don’t want to consider the possibility that what they see happening in other parts of the world might also be coming soon to America?

Satan very definitely has our country up against the ropes today, as pressure is being applied from many different angles; and whatever is the cause for this malaise and false sense of security in America… I believe it is clear that we are in for a rude awakening in America… and very soon too!

In my opinion, at the core of ALL our problems today in America, at all levels, is the fact that we as a nation have long ago turned away from, and have forgotten the God of our forefathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Also as the church in America, we long ago abdicated our position as the Spiritual Gatekeepers and standard bearers of our nation’s morality; and that position has since been passed over to the talking heads on American TV, the Hollywood crowd, and the Oprah Winfrey types on the talk show circuit… and so is it any wonder our nation is in trouble today?

As a Christian, and also as a student of the Bible, myself, I have learned that we have but to look to the history that is recorded in the Bible, to learn the patterns of how God has dealt with similar problems in the past, with the children of Israel.

For in 1 Corinthians 10 we are clearly told that these things have been recorded for our example, in order that we may benefit and learn from their experience.

The other thing that we can learn in the Bible is that when God does bring judgment upon His covenant children, it is not ever to destroy them; but it is to chasten them, and to bring them back to repentance.

Our main problem, as I see it, here in America today is how the church has withdrawn from the culture and from politics; and have left these things to unbelievers and to the agnostics to handle for them.

This is true in all position of government, in business, entertainment, finance, and in the arts… and once again I will pose the question… what else did we expect would happen?

Listen up America, the fact is our nation today is in one heck of a mess… and things are getting worse and not better!!!

We have a situation today in Washington DC, and also in many of our State and local municipalities, where the blind are leading the blind, as things are going from bad to worse by the minute!

I know I have said this many times before, and that I’m repeating myself over and over; but I will continue to beat this drum in the hope that this message sinks in, that our ONLY hope for America today, is the same as it is for the rest of the world; and that is for us to turn to our Operations Manual (the Bible), where we find that our hope is in Jesus Christ, in that we as individuals and as a nation need to humble ourselves (according to 2 Chronicles 7:14); fall to our knees and pray; as we turn from our wicked ways; and begin today to seek after God’s face… and it is only at that point that God promises to hear our prayers from heaven, and heal our land! Selah

Islam and Muslims are not the real problem, and these lost men and women are not really our enemies; and the same is true for the Globalist Bankers and what they are trying to do.

If we understand and accept what the Bible says, it is the principalities and powers of darkness that rule over these people and also the world, who are ultimately ruled by the Prince of Darkness himself, who is Satan (the Devil), and it is he who is our enemy; and it is he whom we must fight against.

Now understand me, because I am not at all saying we are to acquiesce to these ridiculous demands and forfeit our freedoms; but rather if we are to fight the good fight, we also have to defend our own country, our families, and our liberty; but we must also recognize that though these people on the other side have made themselves our enemies, and that’s true enough; but the truth is, except for God’s grace and love, and the influence of the Bible in my own life, I would most likely be right there with them, doing equally dumb things, or worse… and the point is, in the revival that is coming many of these very same people, who are today our enemies, will one day be saved!

After all, God loves them just as he does us; and the only difference between them and us is that our sins have been forgiven through Jesus Christ!

Americans need to wake up because we are fast approaching the most dangerous time in our nation’s history, and it is the decisions that we make in this time, in whether we repent and turn back to God; or whether we continue down this same God forsaken path that we are currently on, it is that decision that will determine whether this experiment in freedom, called the United States of America will be allowed to continue much beyond this point; or whether we shall be swallowed up as so many democracies before us have been, through our own excesses and apathy, to find ourselves ruled at the hands of another dictator?

The ball today is in our court… and so the admonition for all of us is to continue to watch and pray! Selah

Shalom,

The Islamization of the West is a very real threat!!!

This may very well be coming soon to your neighborhood!



PARIS – Friday in Paris. A hidden camera shows streets blocked by huge crowds of Muslim worshippers and enforced by a private security force.

This is all illegal in France: the public worship, the blocked streets, and the private security. But the police have been ordered not to intervene.

It shows that even though some in the French government want to get tough with Muslims and ban the burqa, other parts of the French government continue to give Islam a privileged status.

An ordinary French citizen who has been watching the Islamization of Paris decided that the world needed to see what was happening to his city. He used a hidden camera to start posting videos on YouTube. His life has been threatened and so he uses the alias of “Maxime Lepante. ”

Lepante’s View

His camera shows that Muslims “are blocking the streets with barriers. They are praying on the ground. And the inhabitants of this district cannot leave their homes, nor go into their homes during those prayers.”

“The Muslims taking over those streets do not have any authorization. They do not go to the police headquarters, so it’s completely illegal,” he says.

The Muslims in the street have been granted unofficial rights that no Christian group is likely to get under France’s Laicite’, or secularism law.

“It says people have the right to share any belief they want, any religion,” Lepante explained. “But they have to practice at home or in the mosque, synagogues, churches and so on.”

Some say Muslims must pray in the street because they need a larger mosque. But Lepante has observed cars coming from other parts of Paris, and he believes it is a weekly display of growing Muslim power.

“They are coming there to show that they can take over some French streets to show that they can conquer a part of the French territory,” he said.

France’s Islamic Future?

If France faces an Islamic future, a Russian author has already written about it. The novel is called “The Mosque of Notre Dame, 2048,” a bestseller in Russia, not in France.

French publisher Jean Robin said the French media ignored the book because it was politically incorrect.

“Islam is seen as the religion of the poor people, so you can’t say to the poor people, ‘You’re wrong,’ otherwise, you’re a fascist,” Robin explained.

The book lays out a dark future when France has become a Muslim nation, and the famous cathedral has been turned into a mosque.

Whether that plot is farfetched depends on whom you ask. Muslims are said to be no more than 10 percent of the French population, although no one knows for sure because French law prohibits population counts by religion.

But the Muslim birthrate is significantly higher than for the native French. Some Muslim men practice polygamy, with each extra wife having children and collecting a welfare check.

“The problem of Islam is more than a problem of numbers,” said French philosopher Radu Stoenescu, an Islamic expert who debates Muslim leaders on French TV. “The problem is one of principles. It’s an open question. Is Islam an ideology or just a creed?”

“It doesn’t matter how many there are,” he aded. “The problem is the people who follow Islam; they’re somehow in a political party, which has a political agenda, which means basically implementing Sharia and building an Islamic state.”

In Denial or Fed Up

From the 1980s until recently, criticizing or opposing Islam was considered a social taboo, and so the government and media effectively helped Islam spread throughout France.

“We were expecting Islam to adapt to France and it is France adapting to Islam,” Robin said.

About the burqa controversy, one French Muslim man told a reporter that Europeans should respect Muslim dress. One Parisian woman wearing a headscarf said “the veil is in the Koran” and “we only submit to God and nobody else.”

But even if many government elites are in France are in denial over Islam, the people in the streets increasingly are not. Some have become fed up with what they see as the growing Islamization of France.

They’ve started staging pork and wine “aperitifs,” or cocktail parties in the street. They’re patriotic demonstrations meant to strike back against Islam.  Another national demonstration is planned for Saturday, Sept. 4.

A Warning to the West

The French parliament is expected to debate the burqa law in September. Jean-Francois Cope, president of the Union for a Popular Movement political party, has a warning for the West and for America.

“We cannot accept the development of such practice because it’s not compatible with the life in a modern society, you see,” he said. “And this question is not only a French question. You will all have to face this challenge. ”

Do you think I’m kidding about the threat of Islam in America?

That is but one threat that we face today; the other is the undermining of our U.S. Constitution and the permanent annihilation of our Republic, by those within our own government!

Both are very serious, and both are going to require a miracle of God to upset the enemy’s plans… and I have no doubt, but that God will do just that!

In the natural things are not looking so good right now, however.

Just take a look at what happens every Friday afternoon in New York City:

Now mind you, as Christians we can’t even put a manger scene up in the public square at Christmas time, or have prayer in our public schools; but our liberal minded, progressive, anti-God government and our public education system is so anxious to show their tolerance of the Muslim ideology, and are so afraid of offending them, that they bend over backwards to allow them privileges that no other group in America is allowed to have.

For years now Christian prayer has been banned in public schools all over the U.S.; but now Muslims in the U.S. are demanding their prayer time and are getting it.

In 2000, Congress passed The Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. This legislation demanded that accommodations were to be made on public property to allow for equal access on public property for religious activities, such as prayer, Christian clubs, and Bible Study, for religious groups, as it is allowed for other student groups and activities on campus.

And back in 1993, a federal court even mandated that a San Diego district allow its students to allow religious activities, like prayer, during lunchtime.

However, is spite of these court rulings, we are always hearing of teachers who are being censored or even fired for allowing silent reading of Scripture, by their students, during study hall; or for having any sort of display in their classroom that could be considered of a religious nature, even when such displays are historical, or of a literary nature, and are not religious at all.

Christian students are not even allowed to have student-led prayers at graduation; and students from parochial schools are denied open gym time at the local public schools in their district… even though these parents of Catholic children pay the same taxes as everyone else!

Now compare these unconstitutional and unfair restrictions that are put upon Christian groups, with what Muslims are allowed to get away with, in places like San Diego, CA; Dearborn, MI; Dallas, TX; and New York City, NY.

In these cities schools are today giving Islamic students separate breaks to pray during the school day; and in some places they are even installing foot washing facilities for Muslims; and some districts have even required non-Muslim students read the Koran.

In fact, the complaint has been made in San Diego that these extra breaks amounts to an extra recess for these Islamic students, just for the purpose to allow them to pray. This would never be done for any other group, and especially not for Christians!

Folks do you see a pattern here? I hope so; because there certainly has been a similar pattern established in every other country where Muslims have been allowed to come in and live; where eventually they just take over, through attrition; and eventually are always demanding more rights for themselves, at the expense of everyone else.

This pattern continues until there is a situation as is happening today in Lebanon, and mind you this is the goal in every country, where Sharia Law becomes the law of the land; and all other beliefs and faiths are not tolerated at all!

Now mind you, while all of this is going on in America, we also have a man in the White House today, that even though he says he’s a Christian, nevertheless, on several occasions he has sided against Christians, not wanting to offend Muslims; but apparently he could care less about offending the Christian population; and at the same time he has instead championed Islamic causes and the Islamic agenda… with the latest thing being his support of the construction of a Mosque at Ground Zero!

The trend seems to be that as the population density among the Muslims within Western nations increase; due to multiple wives and such, as their numbers increase, percentage wise, so does their political influence and leverage within the government.

Along with this increase in population and in density comes additional demands for special rights and privileges, over and above the rest of the population; and very often at everyone else’s expense… as is obvious in the above photos taken in New York City.

The lower the percent of population, the lesser their demands; but in time that always changes, as their numbers always increase, and their growth rate always eventually out strips that of the native people, in any one country… and at a certain point, they just take over!

On the Islamic front, that is the nature of the beast, and that is their agenda and strategy for world domination.

It is slow but sure, and it is only a matter of time… unless something happens to prevent it from happening.

Folks this is exact what happens when Christians allow atheists and unbelievers to take over; and then they and everyone else suffers and complains about how their society and culture is going to hell in a hand basket… but what else did they expect would happen, is my question? Go figure!

The road back for us Christians is to get off our duff; and fall to our knees; where we can repent and get right with God!

That’s the first order of business, as is outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:14; and then it is for us to be about our Father’s business, which is to reach out to this lost world for Christ’s sake, and to disciple both nations and individuals… and that also includes Muslims, by the way!

We are privilege to live in a country that allows us to do these things; but for us to continue, as before, as we have in the past, we can ill afford to allow these anti-God forces to rob us of the very rights and liberties that allows us to do these things; and to do them unrestricted and without hindrance… which is certainly what Satan would love to see happen!

Wake up America; wake up Christians… that is all I can say!

Right now the score appears to be in Satan’s favor; but we are not to look at our circumstances; and nor are we to pay attention to feelings; but we are only to look to our faith, that is based on God’s Word alone, and the faithfulness of God to always do the impossible, when all hope seems to be lost!

God specializes in doing the impossible, as a matter of fact!

They are called miracles… and we could use a few of them in our country right now; and many of us could use one or two in our individual lives about now as well.

Let’s not give up folks, and let us not give up on our hope and faith in God either… as our God still rules!

Besides, I’ve read the back of the Book (the Bible) and we win!!!

Shalom,

Skip Barland

Our nation is in trouble… and we need a miracle!!!

Uncle Sam needs you…

A Call for ALL Christians to pray for our country and

invoke 2 Chronicles 7:14, for we need a Miracle folks!!!

God’s message to His covenant children today:Isaiah 59

Sin, Confession and Redemption
1 Listen! The Lord’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call.

2 It’s your sins that have cut you off from God.
Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.

3 Your hands are the hands of murderers, and your fingers are filthy with sin.
Your lips are full of lies, and your mouth spews corruption.

4 No one cares about being fair and honest.
The people’s lawsuits are based on lies.
They conceive evil deeds and then give birth to sin.

5 They hatch deadly snakes and weave spiders’ webs.
Whoever falls into their webs will die, and there’s danger even in getting near them.

6 Their webs can’t be made into clothing, and nothing they do is productive.
All their activity is filled with sin, and violence is their trademark.

7 Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder.
They think only about sinning.
Misery and destruction always follow them.

8 They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good.
They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace.

9 So there is no justice among us, and we know nothing about right living.
We look for light but find only darkness.
We look for bright skies but walk in gloom.

10 We grope like the blind along a wall, feeling our way like people without eyes.
Even at brightest noontime, we stumble as though it were dark.
Among the living, we are like the dead.

11 We growl like hungry bears; we moan like mournful doves.
We look for justice, but it never comes.
We look for rescue, but it is far away from us.

12 For our sins are piled up before God and testify against us.
Yes, we know what sinners we are.

13 We know we have rebelled and have denied the Lord.
We have turned our backs on our God.
We know how unfair and oppressive we have been, carefully planning our deceitful lies.

14 Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found.
Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed.

15 Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked.

The Lord looked and was displeased to find there was no justice.

16 He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed.
So he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.

17 He put on righteousness as his body armor and placed the helmet of salvation on his head.
He clothed himself with a robe of vengeance and wrapped himself in a cloak of divine passion.

18 He will repay his enemies for their evil deeds.
His fury will fall on his foes.
He will pay them back even to the ends of the earth.

19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him
.

Our nation is in serious trouble today; and we are at a crossroads of decision.

We have a rogue government in Washington DC, that no longer respects, nor honors God; and who also no longer follows our U.S. Constitution.

Our political leaders today are leading our nation headlong into what they perceive as a “New World Order;” and in their arrogance and ignorance they are spending us into financial ruin, and are leading us into bondage.

On the Islamic front, since this administration has now determined the real terrorist threat against our country today is no longer from Islam, but it is from American citizens, among those “Right-wing Christians and loyal American Veterans, and anyone who opposes abortion and who supports our U.S. Constitution, according to this administration these are the people who are today’s threat.

And so while our government has gone soft on the war on Terrorism, and this administration is trying to play footsie and make nice with our enemies, and all the while has left our southern most border with Mexico wide open, so that God knows what our enemies have brought into our country, and so while all of this has gone on… look now what has happened:


Folks, if there is any time in our history, as a nation, that we need a miracle, it is now!

There is one lesson that I think we all can learn from our Bible, that I think certainly applies to the United States today; and that is in God’s dealings with the children of Israel, we can plainly see how often He would use the enemies of Israel to bring about correction and repentance!

With that said, I think it is plain to see that the forces of evil, within our country, certainly have a head start on us, as they have been working literally for years (over 100 to be exact) to gain their foothold in our country.

There is just no way that we are going to be able to turn all of this around by any other means, except we have a miracle of God!

Satan certainly has the advantage in having had all this time to establish his roots, as we find that his agents are working all over today, within the media, and also within our government, including Congress, and the White House; among both men and women alike, who have yet to have an encounter with the Living God; but have nevertheless hardened their hearts against Him; even as Pharaoh did in Egypt, when confronted by Moses.

But then there is God… and my Bible says “Greater is He who is in us, and with us, than he who is in the world!!!”

Even Pharaoh soon learned that when it comes to God’s covenant children, he soon found out that his own abstinence and stubbornness became his own undoing!

Likewise, our country has long ago violated our covenant with God, a covenant that our forefathers made with Him, that has been the reason for all our many blessings, our prosperity, as a nation, and also our protection.

In our ignorance and in the hardness of our hearts, we have long ago removed those spiritual boundaries and landmarks that were once established by our founding fathers, and our nation today has all but turned its back upon God!

God however is the same yesterday, today, and forever; and the lesson I believe that God would have America learn today, comes right out of the pages of the Bible, in the Book of Numbers, when Balaam the Prophet of God, was asked by King Balag to curse Israel; and the king offered Balaam bribes in order to try and get him to do so.

Balaam told the king that he could not curse what God had blessed; but also added, that in order to get Israel on the outs with God, and to get them to remove themselves out from under God’s hedge of protection and blessing, all Balag had to do was to get Israel to violate and disobey their covenant with God… and that is what the king eventually did.

This is also America’s situation today, and I think a few years ago Billy Graham’s daughter hit the nail on the head:

Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz in an interviewed on the Early Show, with Jane Clayson, right after 9/11, was asked:

How could a loving God let something like this happen? (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11)

Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said:

I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are; but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.

And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out; and so how can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?

In light of recent events…terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, and her body found recently) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school … the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK.

Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. The school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don’t want any bad publicity, and we surely don’t want to be sued (there’s a big difference between disciplining, touching, beating, smacking, humiliating, kicking, etc.). And we said OK.

Then someone said, let’s let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won’t even have to tell their parents. And we said OK.

Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they’re going to do it anyway, let’s give our sons all the condoms they want so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won’t have to tell their parents they got them at school.

And we said OK.”

So what is the answer, and what do we do?

Well I think it is obvious that the solution to America’s problems today, which are massive, starts on our knees in prayer; and truly whatever we do, it is going to take a miracle and an act of God to save our nation!

The road home and our reconciliation back into God’s protection and grace can only happen as we as individuals and as a nation repent, just as Nineveh once did.

Our nation desperately needs both a Revival and a Spiritual Awakening among the church; and only God can do both!

As our enemies, among the Islamic Jihad movement, are setting their traps; and as those within our government are running their Globalist agenda, and are working to undermine our Constitution, and to permanently disable our Republic, let us remember whose in charge!

The fact is, one word from God can turn all of this around!

So let us who are called by His name, continue to humble ourselves and pray; let us turn from our wicked ways; and begin to seek after God’s face; that God would hear our prayers from heaven, and would heal our land, in Jesus name. Amen.

Shalom,

FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!!!


It wasn’t that long ago that our nation was embroiled in a war to rid our world of a very serious evil, called Nazi Fascism;

here it is 2010, 66 years later, and another evil called Islamic Fascism is raising its head, together with something called the “New World Order,” which is another fascist movement; and yet still today most of America sleeps.

This is as good a time as any for us to recall, and bring to remembrance, what it was we were fighting against in WW II!

Lest we repeat this same history once again, here in America, let us be forewarned:

26 Similarities Between America and Nazi Germany

Three Forces Destroying the America We Know

Even the most nominally aware person knows all too well that our nation-and the world-is engulfed in a major economic catastrophe.

Thanks to the variety of factors at work, some observers have characterized it as the perfect economic storm.

Yet this drama is a mere thunder shower by comparison with a far more devastating potential that threatens to wreck not just the American dream but the entire American ideal.

If this maelstrom reaches its full power, liberty and justice for all-to say nothing of the pursuit of happiness-will be wiped from the face of the earth.

A perfect cultural storm is developing from the convergence of three forces, any one of which would seriously harm our way of life. But together they portend the near certain doom of the most cherished American values.

Socialism, pagan spirituality, and pragmatism have come together over the last several decades to produce a cataclysm waiting to happen.

  • Socialism imposes the redistribution of wealth and private property through an all-powerful, freedom-robbing central government.
  • Pagan spirituality embraces the worship of nature along with occult practices and beliefs.
  • Pragmatism proclaims that the truth or worth of an idea is based solely upon the results it brings (pragmatists believe that truth is relative, situational, and that a desired end justifies any means required to reach it).

All three of these political, spiritual, and intellectual systems have taken a dominant place in the American worldview.

Doomsday-Again

It’s been said that if we don’t learn from history we are doomed to repeat it.

There are those who have even compared the rumblings in America today as similar to those in pre-Nazi Germany of the 1930s.

The fact is, these storm clouds that are today forming over our country have brought with it ideas that have been included in our public policy, our laws, and our national consciousness that bear a frightening resemblance to what has gone on before-in the worst of times.

This same collection of worldviews laid a foundation for the atrocities and godless government of Hitler’s Germany.

Adolph Hitler, you’ll recall, established the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

He also bought into what I call One World Spirituality, a merging of the three worldviews of evolutionary humanism, Hindu pantheism, and occultism.

Atheism in America is no longer in vogue among our “intellectual elite.” It’s being replaced by the far more insidious pantheism-insidious because it is more acceptable to the masses than outright disbelief in God. Pantheism is on track to become the dominate worldview in America and around the world in very short order.

Similar Is as Similar Does

Please understand that I’m not sensationalizing when making these observations.

First Chronicles 12:32 says the men of the tribe of Issachar were called wise because they:

“…understood the times and knew what God would have them to do.”

To help you make your own assessment of the situation, I’ve distinguished 26 benchmark issues that clearly define the intensity of the tempest that is nearly upon us.

And yes, there are obvious comparisons with the growth of Nazism in Germany.

I will point them out unabashedly because it’s only reasonable to say so if something that looks similar to an earlier, dangerous historical parallel actually is similar.

After all, storm warnings, by nature, foretell bad news.

As you read through my list, I invite you to understand the times and prepare to respond with a Biblical worldview.

  1. In 1935, under Hitler’s rule, prayers ceased to be obligatory in schools. In 1962, The U.S. Supreme Court outlawed school prayer.
  2. Hitler eliminated Christian holidays in the schools first by calling Christmas “Yuletide.” Most American public schools now call Christmas vacation a “winter break.”
  3. Hitler took Easter out of schools and instead honored that time of year as the beginning of spring. It has likewise become common for schools in America to refer to time off at Easter as “spring break.”
  4. Hitler controlled the church using intimidation and threats. A half-century ago, U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Baines Johnson, promoted a bill that included an amendment to use the Internal Revenue Service to remove the non-profit status of a church that speaks against the election of any specific political candidate.
  5. Hitler enticed thousands of pastors to promote paganism in their congregations. Neopaganism is one of the fastest growing religions in America, doubling every 18 months according to a June 2008 article in The Denver Post. Many American church-goers practice paganism such as “Christian” yoga, contemplative prayer, and walking a labyrinth. As evidence that church doors continue to open further to aberrant beliefs, a 2008 survey found that 57% of evangelicals do not believe Jesus Christ is the only way to God.
  6. Hitler was an environmentalist and vegetarian. Marriages performed by the Nazi state frequently included blessings of “Mother Earth” and “Father Sky.” Today Americans increasingly accept radical environmentalism, pantheism, and the celebration of Earth Day.
  7. Hitler was fascinated by eastern mysticism. Today an increasing number of American pastors encourage their followers to become “mystic warriors”.
  8. Hitler believed in reincarnation. He even convinced SS officers that by murdering millions of Jews and other “undesirables” they were allowing them to get on with the reincarnation process and come back more quickly in an advanced status. Americans increasingly accept the idea of reincarnation as well as good and bad karma.
  9. Hitler’s holocaust killed between 8 and 11 million Jews and non-Jews. Americans have killed an estimated 50 million babies since abortion was legalized through the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973. According to a July 7, 2008 article on worldnetdaily.com “An abortionist who claims to have destroyed more than 20,000 unborn children and who once was Hillary Clinton’s OB-GYN says he is doing ‘God’s work’ when he terminates a pregnancy…He admits that abortion kills a human soul.”
  10. Hitler killed 270,000 handicapped people through active euthanasia.[1] America and the courts are rushing toward the same with the murder of individuals such as Terri Schiavo. Oregon voters passed their Death with Dignity Act in 1994 and re-affirmed it in 1997. Washington state voters legalized doctor-assisted suicide on November 4, 2008. In December 2008, a Montana judge ruled terminally ill residents of that state have the right to physician-assisted suicide, and “death with dignity” is gaining acceptance in other states as well.
  11. By 1938, all private schools were abolished by Hitler and all education placed under Nazi control. There is constant pressure from federal and many state education authorities to require that Christian schools use state-mandated, humanistic textbooks. The Home School Legal Defense Association is fighting numerous battles at any given time to prevent parents from loosing the right to educate their children as they see fit. In August 2008, a federal district court ruled that the state of California university system may choose not to recognize the diplomas-and thereby deny college entrance to-students who attended a school using textbooks that express a Biblical worldview in the areas of history and science (i.e., Christian schools).
  12. Hitler prevented dissenters from using radio to challenge his worldview. Many powerful liberals in America have made clear their intent to reintroduce the “Fairness Doctrine” that would require conservative and religious radio stations to offer equal time to anti-Christian, anti-conservative worldviews.
  13. Pastors who spoke against Hitler’s worldview and his murderous regime found themselves on trial and frequently imprisoned for “Abuse of Pulpit.” In America, hate-crime legislation has the potential to criminalize Christians and pastors who speak out against the homosexual agenda.
  14. Many Christians in Germany justified their allegiance to Hitler through a belief that “Their duty to God was spiritual; their duty to the state was political.”[2] Many American Christians now have bought the lie that their worldview can be divided between the secular and the sacred-the politician has one area of responsibility, the pastor another, and never shall the two meet. Yet the Bible teaches that all issues are fundamentally spiritual.
  15. Hitler outlawed the cross and replaced it with the swastika. Today many churches, Christian colleges, and universities have willingly removed the cross from their buildings. Numerous court cases sponsored by the ACLU have required the removal of the cross from public grounds. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that the Ten Commandments cannot be posted on public grounds for religious purposes.
  16. Hitler was fascinated with Friedrich Nietzsche and distributed his writings to his inner circle. Nietzsche promoted Nihilism, the belief that life has no meaning, and he is best known for his position that “God is dead”. Nietzsche is presently one of the most widely read authors by American college students.
  17. Hitler exploited the economic collapse of Germany to take over as dictator and usher in his brand of socialism. America’s financial crisis has given liberals in both political parties the opportunity to grow the size of government and implement freedom-robbing socialism at lightning speed.
  18. Hitler was obsessed with globalism, and many of America’s most powerful political leaders are willing to subjugate American sovereignty to contemporary globalism.
  19. Many Germans responded to Hitler by retreating into neutrality. Today most Americans prefer to remain neutral on moral issues that they think don’t affect them personally.
  20. On trial after World War II, Hitler’s henchmen used the defense that they had not broken any laws. True, they had not defied the laws of Germany since those had been re-written to fit the goals and objectives of Hitler. The Nazi leaders were nevertheless found guilty because the courts at the time recognized a “law above the law.” Yet now the U.S. Supreme Court has rejected the law of nature and nature’s God by claiming that as society evolves, morals evolve, and so the law, too, must evolve.
  21. Calling upon Darwinian evolution, Hitler convinced the German people that purging millions of people was acceptable because of the need to create a pure race; also referred to as eugenics. American students across the board have been educated in Darwinian evolution because the Supreme Court has ruled that creation cannot be taught in our schools-even if both creation and evolution are taught side by side.
  22. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood in America became acquainted with the doctors and scientists that had worked with Nazi Germany’s eugenics program and had no quarrel with the euthanasia, sterilization, abortion, and infanticide programs of the early Reich.[3] Sanger even published several articles in Birth Control Review that reflected Hilter’s White Supremacist worldview. Planned Parenthood now grosses one billion per year.
  23. In Germany, pastors often cited Romans 13:1-2 to encourage Christians to obey the Nazis. Today in America, many pastors have a false view of Romans 13:1-2 and have convinced millions that to disobey governing authorities is to disobey God. This poor training would facilitate Christians here doing just as the German Christians did if faced with similar challenges.
  24. Germans accepted socialism to avoid pain. Today’s Americans are rejecting capitalism in exchange for government-sponsored “free” healthcare, education, and countless other government handouts.
  25. Many Americans accept what I call, One World Spirituality. This is actually an amalgamation of the three worldviews of evolutionary humanism, Hindu pantheism, and occultism. I noted earlier that Hitler embraced all of these.
  26. America is rushing toward government-sponsored, national healthcare. We already have a form of this in Medicare and Medicaid. Hitler, too, expanded and centralized Germany’s healthcare system. As Melchior Palyi explained, “The ill-famed Dr. Ley, boss of the Nazi labor front, did not fail to see that the social insurance system could be used for Nazi politics as a means of popular demagoguery, as a bastion of bureaucratic power, [and] as an instrument of regimentation.”

If the church in Germany had truly acted like the Church of Jesus Christ, if Christians had understood and lived out a Biblical worldview, Germany would never have accepted Hitler.

I believe he would have been rejected and overthrown within weeks of his true worldview coming to light.

The fact is, most American church members today are simply reflecting the culture instead of correcting and changing it.

If we are to quiet the brewing storm, apathy, political correctness, and intellectual laziness must be replaced with a passion for Biblical truth, sound reasoning, logic, and the desire to lead.

Becoming a leader does not mean you must be on the radio, give speeches, or even stand up in front of a group.

An effective influencer leads through his or her actions and lifestyle.

Lovingly defending and proclaiming truth in a world bent on political correctness is being a leader.

Even in private conversation, leadership can take the form of lovingly correcting someone’s false beliefs or ideas.

America needs Christians now more than ever to take the lead.

If not, the perfect storm is ready, and annihilation is what it portends.

What happened in pre-Nazi Germany that gave rise to Hitler, is today happening in America, and make no mistake, the next Fuhrer/World Leader will be the Antichrist!

Our choice here in the United States today is either choose the pillow of a restored Constitutional Republic; or as happened in Germany, we shall get the boot and bayonet of Martial Law, followed by a loss of all our liberties; and the subsequent totalitarian dictatorship of the “New World Order”… and it is as simple as that!!!  Which one do you choose?

A call for all Americans to return to Truth!!!

A call for all Americans to return to Truth!!!

In construction, common sense and wisdom both tell us that we cannot rebuild anything and expect it to be both lasting and an improvement over the previous structure, unless we are building on a sure foundation. So consequently before reconstruction begins on a building, often it is necessary that they first tear down the super structure and repair the foundation.


To carry this metaphor over, likewise the same truth applies to the rebuilding of our government and our economy; and even more importantly, a foundation of Truth is absolutely necessary before we can restore the moral fiber of our society.


By the way, as Christians, we all recognize that Truth for us is not found in a philosophy, and nor is it found in any ideology of man; but rather Truth for the Chrisitan it is found in a person, in Jesus Christ our Lord; who said “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE!!!

Surely we all understand this when it comes to rebuilding our home; but there is no difference, because whether we are talking about rebuilding a house or a nation, our having a sure foundation is imperative; and anything that is built on a lie or on compromise is destined to fail, and it is only a matter of time before it does.

But if America does not know the truth of what happened in its history that brought us to where we are today, then how can they correct it?

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels

The alternative of us continuing in the same lie and compromise is not acceptable; which will certainly happen if we allow the same corrupt system and influence to continue on in the future, that is the very cause of our nation’s demise.

That would be the absolute worse thing that could happen, that we as Americans return to the same corrupt system that put us in this mess; and that we as a nation remain on this same merry-go-round, that we have been on for the last 100 years, and the very same lie, that is the very cause of our nation’s decline!

We need to wise up folks, because unless we start over and rebuild our nation on truth, without compromise, then anything less will not last, and it will not be of help to either us, nor to our nation.

What I am telling you here is not an option folks, we have to restore our original organic Constitution and our Republic, just as our founding fathers intended; and at the same time we must once and for all get rid of this fraud upon the American people, called the UNITED STATES CORPORATION!!!

http://www.apfn.net/Doc-100_bankruptcy.htm


Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent, this applies to ALL Americans, that we cannot hope to turn our nation around unless we are first willing to face the truth, and correct the lie!!

Question: why is something this important not discussed and exposed in the media?  Why isn’t it discussed and exposed in Congress?

Well, the reason is the people who are operating as the gatekeepers of our media are bought and paid for by the Globalist Bankers, as are many  of our elected representatives in Washington DC, at least among those who are the power brokers, who have the muscle and weight in both influence and control our national policy; which by the way, also includes many of the talking heads in the media too. And this is true to the extent they are able to sway and manipulate public opinion through the spin that is given to the news.

These people are NOT working for “We the People” at all; but they are working for the U.S. Corporation, for the purpose of implementing their “New World Order!”

That’s the reason why they have passed over 800 Billion Dollars of Stimulus and Fat Cat Bailout Legislation, over our objections!

And this is exactly the reason why our government is so corrupt today, and why our economy is in shambles, and getting worse everyday; it is because we are not operating as a Constitutional Republic, and we haven’t been since 1871!

Now all of this is a fact of history, and you can choose to ignore it if you want, but don’t expect any change or improvement until we begin to fix what’s broke in our country, and we restore both our original Constitution and our Republic!

Also, as Americans, we all need to be praying for and standing with this lone man, this patriot, Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin (see article below), who is taking this brave stand really for ALL of us, on the side of truth and honesty; in the face of one of the worse travesties of truth and justice in the history of our nation, in that we have sitting in the White House today a person who is not at all what he appears to be; and worse we have a Congress that looked the other way and allowed this travesty to happen.

This is my point exactly, that we cannot even hope to rebuild our nation, our economy, or anything else, unless we first are willing to face the truth; and start by rebuilding our foundation as a nation, as our forefathers did… on Jesus Christ!

Shalom,

Skip Barland

General: Obama records
‘critical’ to ‘our republic’

McInerney: Eligibility issue ‘of such magnitude
that its significance can scarcely be imagined’


Posted: August 31, 2010
8:10 pm Eastern

By Bob Unruh


WorldNetDaily

A retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant general who commanded forces armed with nuclear weapons says the disclosure of Barack Obama’s documentation proving his eligibility to be commander in chief is critical not just to the defense of an officer challenging the president’s status, but to the preservation of the nation itself.

The vehement statements came in an affidavit from retired Lt. Gen. Thomas G. McInerney, a Fox News military analyst, that was disclosed today by an organization generating support for Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin.


Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin

Lakin had invited his own court-martial because he is unable to follow orders under the chain of command with Obama at its head unless the president’s eligibility is documented.

A hearing is scheduled in Lakin’s court-martial case Thursday at which a ruling is expected on defense requests for the very evidence that McInerney is citing.

The general, who retired in 1994 after serving as vice commander in chief of USAF forces in Europe, commander of the 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing and assistant vice chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, among other positions, said the chain of command issue is critical, since officers are obligated both to follow orders and to disobey illegal orders.

See the movie Obama does not want you to see: Own the DVD that probes this unprecedented presidential-eligibility mystery!

“Officers in the United States military service are – and must be – trained that they owe their highest allegiance to the United States Constitution,” he said in the affidavit.

“There can be no question that it is absolutely essential to good order and discipline in the military that there be no break in the unified chain of command, from the lowliest E-1 up to and including the commander in chief who is under the Constitution, the president of the United States. As military officers, we owe our ultimate loyalty not to superior officers or even to the president, but rather, to the Constitution.”

He continued, explaining, “good order and disipline requires not blind obedience to all orders but instead requires officers to judge – sometimes under great adversity – whether an order is illegal.”


“The president of the United States, as the commander in chief, is the source of all military authority,” he said. “The Constitution requires the president to be a natural born citizen in order to be eligible to hold office. If he is ineligible under the Constitution to serve in that office that creates a break in the chain of command of such magnitude that its significance can scarcely be imagined.”

Lakin is being supported by the American Patriot Foundation, which said the affidavit is for use in Lakin’s trial, scheduled Oct. 13-15, as well as Thursday’s hearing on the evidence to be allowed in the case.

The group said McInerney is the highest-ranking officer yet to lend public support to Lakin.

A recent poll showed that only about 4 in 10 Americans believe Obama’s story of being born in Hawaii.

McInerney’s affidavit “acknowledges widespread concerns over the president’s constitutional eligibility and demands the president release his birth records or the court authorize discovery,” the foundation said.

Lakin’s defense counsel has asked for the president’s school records as well as a deposition from the custodian of Obama’s birth records that may exist in Hawaii.

The hearing is scheduled at 11 a.m. Thursday at Ft. Meade, Md., at the courthouse at 4432 Llewellyn Ave., inside the military base. The court is open to the public.

Lakin is a physician and in his 18th year of service in the Army. He posted a video asking for the court-martial to determine Obama’s eligibility.

He is board certified in family medicine and occupational and environmental medicine. He has been recognized for his outstanding service as a flight surgeon for year-long tours in Honduras, Bosnia and Afghanistan. He was also awarded the Bronze Star for his service in Afghanistan and recognized in 2005 as one of the Army Medical Department’s outstanding flight surgeons.

McInerney commanded forces equipped withi nuclear weapons.

“In my command capacity I was responsible that the personnel with access to these weapons had an unwavering and absolute confidence in the unified chain of command, because such confidence was absolutely essential – vital – in the event the use of those weapons were authorized,” the general wrote.

“I cannot overstate how imperative it is to train such personnel to have confidence in the unified chain of command. Today, because of the widespread and legitimate concerns that the president is constitutionally ineligible to hold office, I fear what would happen should such a crisis occur today.”

He said Lakin is acting “exactly” as “proper training dictates.”

“It is my opinion that LTC Lakin’s request for discovery relating to the president’s birth records in Hawaii is absolutely essential to determining not merely his guilt or innocence but to reassuring all military personnel once and for all for this president whether his service as commander in chief is constitutionally proper.

“He is the one single person in the chain of command that the Constitution demands proof of natural born citizenship,” he continued. “This determination is fundamental to our republic.

“According to the Constitution, the commander in chief must now, in the face of serious – and widely-held – concerns that he is ineligible, either voluntarily establish his eligibility by authorizing release of his birth records or this court must authorize their discovery. The invasion of his privacy in these records is utterly trivial compared to the issues at stake here,” McInerney wrote.

Lakin is represented by military counsel and by Paul Rolf Jensen, a civilian attorney from California who has been provided to him by the American Patriot Foundation, a non-profit group incorporated in 2003 to foster appreciation and respect for the U.S. Constitution.

The foundation says the Army’s opinion of Lakin was made clear in an evaluation just before Lakin raised the issue of eligibility.

From Col. Dale Block: “Dr. Lakin is an extremely talented, highly knowledgeable senior Army clinician … he can always be counted on to provide me with expert advice. … LTC Lakin is clearly one of the top clinicians in the Northern Regional Medical Command. He has superb clinical skills, rapport with patients and staff. … Terry is the best choice for tough assignments. … Already on the promotion list to colonel, he should be groomed for positions of greater responsibility.”

But Lakin, the foundation says, has been compelled to act because he swore an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. Obama’s eligibility to be president has been questioned, he argues, and Obama has refused all efforts to obtain documents that could determine his eligibility.

The controversy stems from the Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, which states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”

A number of challenges and lawsuits have been based on the constitutional requirement, some alleging Obama does not qualify because he was not born in Hawaii in 1961 as he claims. Others say he fails to qualify because he was a dual citizen of the U.S. and the United Kingdom when he was born, and the framers of the Constitution specifically excluded dual citizens from eligibility.

Complicating the issue is the fact that besides Obama’s actual birth documentation, he has kept from the public documentation including his kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, baptism records and his adoption records.

Lakin declined to follow deployment orders after he tried through military channels to affirm the validity of orders under Obama’s command and was rebuffed. He had been scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan again.

Lakin is not the first officer to raise questions. Others have included Army doctor Capt. Connie Rhodes and Army reservist Maj. Stefan Cook.

In at least one of the earlier disputes, the Army simply canceled the orders rather than allow the argument to come to a head.

Lakin’s attorneys have said they now are demanding “discovery” of Obama’s records, and that in such a dispute that information is critical. The multitude of civil cases that have been brought over the Obama eligibility dispute all have failed to reach that process because of federal judges who have ruled on issues generally involving “standing.” The judges have concluded that damages from an ineligible president suffered by the plaintiffs would not be more for them than any other member of the public, so there is not a specific damage or danger.

Lakin’s counsel, Jensen, has explained that the Lakin case is different, since his client is being processed on criminal charges over the issue – a status that puts him in imminent danger of specific and personal “damages.”

The courts already have shown a weakness on the subject of Obama’s records. The discovery-of-evidence issue previously was raised in court by attorney John Hemenway, who was threatened by a federal judge with sanctions for bringing a court challenge to Obama’s presidency.

Hemenway is serving in emeritus status with the SafeguardOurConstitution website. Hemenway brought a previous court challenge, now on appeal, on behalf of a retired military officer, Gregory S. Hollister, who questioned Obama’s eligibility.

The Hollister case ultimately was dismissed by Judge James Robertson, who notably ruled during the 2008 election campaign that the federal legal dispute had been “twittered” and, therefore, resolved.

Robertson sarcastically wrote: “The plaintiff says that he is a retired Air Force colonel who continues to owe fealty to his commander in chief (because he might possibly be recalled to duty) and who is tortured by uncertainty as to whether he would have to obey orders from Barack Obama because it has not been proven – to the colonel’s satisfaction – that Mr. Obama is a native-born American citizen, qualified under the Constitution to be president.

“The issue of the president’s citizenship was raised, vetted, blogged, texted, twittered and otherwise massaged by America’s vigilant citizenry during Mr. Obama’s two-year campaign for the presidency, but this plaintiff wants it resolved by a court,” Robertson wrote.

Then the judge suggested sanctions against Hemenway for bringing the case. Hemenway responded that the process then would provide him with a right to a discovery hearing to see documentation regarding the judge’s statements – not supported by any evidence introduced into the case – that Obama was properly “vetted.”

Hemenway warned at the time, “If the court persists in pressing Rule 11 procedures against Hemenway, then Hemenway should be allowed all of the discovery pertinent to the procedures as court precedents have permitted in the past.

“The court has referred to a number of facts outside of the record of this particular case and, therefore, the undersigned is particularly entitled to a hearing to get the truth of those matters into the record. This may require the court to authorize some discovery,” Hemenway said.

The court ultimately backed off its threat of sanctions.

In a separate case, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threatened sanctions against attorney Mario Apuzzo. The court quickly backed off, however, when Apuzzo noted that under the rules of court procedure, being subjected to sanctions and penalties would give him the right to discovery in the case, possibly including Obama’s birth certificate.

The Constitution requires a president to be a “natural born citizen,” and, while the term is not defined in the Constitution, many legal analysts believe at the time it was written it meant a person born in the U.S. of two U.S. citizen parents. Critics say Obama clearly does not qualify under that definition, since he has admitted in his book his father never was a U.S. citizen. Some legal challenges have argued he wasn’t even born in Hawaii.

Tim Adams, a former senior elections clerk for Honolulu, has said there “definitely” are problems with Obama’s Hawaii birth story.

“As of the time I was in Hawaii working in the elections office we had many people who were asking about the eligibility of Senator Obama to be president. I was told at the time there is no long-form birth record, which would have been the case if President Obama was born in [a] hospital in Honolulu. There is no such form in Hawaii,” he said.

Lakin had posted a YouTube video challenging the Army to charge him over the issue.

As WND reported, Lakin posted the video of his challenge to Obama to document his eligibility March 30.

In his latest video, Lakin said the issue of evidence is important:
