King Abdullah of Jordan knows what the Obama administration is too blind to see! (Video)

By: Michael Haltman http://politicsandfinance.blogspot.com That the Muslim Brotherhood mission is to have its crescent rise above the  entirety of the Middle East and ultimately the world! On-the-other-hand perhaps the problem isn’t that Barack Obama is blind to the  issues. Perhaps the problem is that he is equipped with 20/20 vision and  simply has other motives that are in play in Egypt and around the entirety of  the Middle East when it comes to the balance of power there. While  Barack Obama and his new band of national security and foreign policy merry men  and women keep pushing rhetoric over substantive action to try and stem the rise  of radical Islam throughout the Middle East, the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran and  others continue to spread their wings. This because we are dealing with  an enemy that smells fear, cowardice and weakness and who doesn’t for a second  buy the empty rhetoric that this administration has been dishing out for over  four years. The perfect example of failed Obama administration thinking  could not be personified any better than by the giving of F-16′s and tanks to a  Muslim Brotherhood led Egypt (‘ Egypt  — I brought a knife to the fight and gave my enemy guns? ” In short through his actions and inactions, Barack Obama is complicit in making  the world a much more dangerous place! King Abdullah of Jordan: Beware  the Muslim Brotherhood! H/T The  Right Scoop King Abdullah of Jordan knows what the Obama administration is too blind to see!

Too Many Battles, Not Enough Bible

Any television show that simultaneously confounds the pagans and the heretics can’t be all bad. But there’s a basic flaw in the History Channel’s The Bible that makes it hard for the cultural Christian or the spiritual seeker to absorb the message. This is not to say the program isn’t popular. In fact, it’s wildly popular, but I fear we are preaching to the choir. The opening episode of The Bible attracted 13.1 million viewers, the largest cable audience of the year, and topped both editions of “American Idol” the same week. Episode two had 10.8 million viewers, more than any other program in the same time period and it finished 11th overall for the week. The third episode gained viewers, inching up to 10.9 million, and was number nine for the week. This is even more startling when you recall, as Daniel Wattenberg of the Washington Times pointed out, that The Bible “lacked the ready–made, large scale promotional platform and popular lead–in that can drive strong ratings for a new show on a major broadcast network…” It also lacked the nudity, bad language, obscene cartoon characters and titillation that excites the prurient interest of many cable TV viewers — although it does contain some off­–screen fornication, adultery and murder. On the other hand The Bible had thousands of mentions in church bulletins and word of mouth to help build the audience. (The program is proving to be a Godsend for youth ministries across America.) So what’s not to like? As the program is structured it appeals to Christians who know the Bible or think they know it, yet it answers no questions and puts nothing in perspective for the curious viewer who wants to learn more about the Good Book. In fact, the program runs a very real risk of alienating those viewers. It is very easy for them to ask: Why does a supposedly loving God command King Saul to kill everyone? Why are the Israelites attacking Canaanites who have done them no wrong and were there first? Why did it take 40 years to get from Egypt to the Promised Land? Why didn’t Moses get to enter the Promised Land? What did the Sodomites do that was so bad? (No pun intended.) If David is such a sinner, why does God love him and not other sinners He had killed? What did a child like Ishmael do to deserve banishment? Why did God toy with Abraham and Isaac? And those are just the questions from the first two episodes! After about the third killing spree Buddhism starts to look pretty good, to say nothing of Unitarianism. The Bible is ten hours long but even that length means much is truncated and condensed. (Why couldn’t The Hobbit have dispensed with some of the padding and been only Hobbit I and Hobbit II, giving the excess to The Bible?) The series cries out for a narration to bridge the gap and provide continuity and explanation. Even better, each episode should be followed by a 15–minute scholarly discussion among experts to put the events into an overall context. I don’t mean the secular culture’s favorite Bible experts: Bart Ehrman, the agnostic professor of religion, and Karen Armstrong, the failed nun who is liable to believe most anything. This duo would chuckle and explain how these blood–thirsty folk tales are a product of their time, with little relevance to today’s enlightened society. If God were commissioning a bible nowadays, the content and teaching would be much different. No, the overview portion would feature solid, believing scholars who can explain and put the Bible into context. They could observe Genesis concerns the long fall of man and how God intervenes to save the righteous few. Once He sets the Israelites apart from the rest of man, God’s intent is for them to be a pure and holy race: literally the chosen people. He knows man is weak and He does not want the Israelites to be contaminated by the fallen tribes in Canaan, who are sinners that practice child sacrifice; fallen beyond the hope of redemption. The Israelites spend 40 years in the wilderness because they did not believe God and rejected His command to take the Promised Land. God waited until that generation died out and only the two good spies — Joshua and Caleb — remained. Moses did not enter the Promised Land because he disobeyed God in front of the Israelites. David was a sinner and a serial sinner at that, but he recognized his sins and begged God for forgiveness. Even at that he paid a price for his transgressions. Ishmael was banished because he was the product of a sin originating with Sarah and was not part of God’s plan for Abraham, but even at that God heard Abraham’s plea and Ishmael fathered a great nation. But it was a nation that contended with the Israelites. And God tested Abraham’s trust to prove he was worthy to be the founder of the chosen people. But none of this is evident from just watching The Bible. The producers could even have had young people ask the questions of the experts in a roundtable setting. It would not be any more unrealistic than an Obama town meeting or episode of Real Housewives of DC and might bring some of the searching to Christ. No doubt the DVD will have something like this in the ‘extras’ portion. Unfortunately, that will be too late. Only the sold buy the DVD, the browsers have already moved on.

Government: America’s New God

I was around nine years old when dad took me to see the movie, “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston at the Town Theater in downtown Baltimore. It was a big deal for us because the theater had just begun admitting blacks. Etched in my brain is the scene when Moses came down from the mountain to witness the Israelites engrossed in an orgy of self-indulgence celebrating the new god they created, a golden calf.  They had abandoned God to worship a man-made false god. I chastised fellow black Christians for worshiping a false god of skin-color, monolithic voting to give Obama a second term despite their awareness of his anti-biblical agenda. However, I have come to realize that the insidious spirit of anti-Christ emanating from the Obama Administration has spread far and wide. All historical rules for winning and losing elections do not apply to Obama. His political bullying power and irrational status as a cult hero are unprecedented. But here is the kicker and most scariest truth about America’s zombie-like loyalty to Obama. November 6, 2012, half the country, which includes millions of Christians, chose a Democrat and media man-made “golden man” idol as their “new” Lord and Savior. Amazingly, actor and Obama disciple Jamie Foxx admitted it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZltKs9g-utk While Obama appears to be the “golden” idol and focus of worship, America’s real new false god is Government, hidden inside behind Obama’s well-crafted shiny gold exterior. The Israelites surrendered the gold items (their inheritance) brought with them from Egypt to build their new golden calf idol. In like fashion, Democrats and the media convinced millions of Americans to surrender their biblical principles, freedom and liberty (their birthright) to build a golden idol of government. Many Americans have abandoned God to worship Government, a new supposed all-powerful and all-giving man-made false god. Dear Lord, help us! The Bible warns that false prophets will arise and deceive many. (Matthew 24:4-5) Obama is a false prophet. He persuaded millions to vote their vested interest, sacrificing biblical principles, law, freedom and liberty. I am hearing of more black Christian pastors in worship of their new god Obama/Government, coming out in favor of gay marriage. While Jesus praised investors and rebuked the coward afraid to invest in the parable of the talents, Obama has demonized investors –  branding them reckless and greedy. God’s word says prosperity is achieved via hard work. “You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.” – Psalms 128:2 Proverbs 10: 4 “Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.” Obama, in essence, calls God a liar by declaring that  prosperity is achieved via government redistribution. http://townhall.com/columnists/thomassowell/2012/09/20/the_fallacy_of_redistribution/page/full/ Rest assured, Democrats and the media will pull out all the stops to make Obama’s second inauguration just short of the second coming – an All-Hail-to-Our-King/Messiah spectacular. I wouldn’t put it pass Obama’s special effects buddies in Hollywood to arrange for his entrance to feature him descending from the heavens on a cloud as Beyonce and a mass choir sings “Hosanna to Our King”. As in the movie, “The Ten Commandments”, Obama’s inauguration will be an orgy of idolatry in worship of the Left’s golden man who is really fronting for their god, Government. Millions will offer up tears of admiration. The American Left (Socialists/Progressives) are elated. Finally, there is a new god in town and it “ain’t” the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob nor our Founding Fathers. Is the Left’s jubilation justified? Do a majority of Americans now look to Obama/Government to supply ALL their needs, including deciding who lives and who dies ( death panels buried in Obamacare ), rather than the God on which our country was founded? http://www.afn.org/~govern/Christian_Nation.html Unquestionably, Obama’s reelection has emboldened his disciples to politically bludgeon us into submission to their Godless agenda. For example: Obama-ites are attempting to bully/punish the Pope and the Catholic Church for not embracing homosexuality. http://watchdogwire.com/florida/2013/01/06/white-house-petition-declares-catholic-church-a-hate-group/ Using typical Democrat tactics of lies and misdirection, Obama-ites claimed conservatives had a “War on Women”, while hiding their real horrific War on Babies. Planned Parenthood’s annual report showed   record profits and a record number of abortions, 333,964 in 2011. http://washingtonexaminer.com/planned-parenthood-reports-record-year-for-abortions/article/2517801#.UOwfvXdGLqe I wonder if the geniuses who could have cured Cancer and AIDS were among the murdered? Taxpayers, against their will, funded PP with $542 million. Further usurping divine authority and sticking his finger in the eye of God, Obama has decreed (mandated in Obamacare) that Christians will fund abortion and contraceptive services against their faith. My fellow Americans, we are in the midst of a cultural and spiritual war for the heart, mind and soul of America. Moses asked, “Who is on the Lord’s side, let him come unto me.” I ask the same.
