Foreign Islamic Extreemists Encouraged By US To Infiltrate Native American Tribe On Arizona/Mexican Border

Common Sense Commentary: In my recent Blog on "Terrorists On Our Southern Border" I included an article from Judicial Watch confirming the fact and alerting America of the danger. That article was sent to me by a fellow blogger, Elaine Merritt, who was a member of the church I pastored in Tallahassee, FL for 30 years. Elaine is retired from high office and is still involved in political education via her Blog. In my Blog, mentioned above, I suggested that the Muslim Terrorists entering our Southern border could very well be in co-operation with Mexican drug runners. This morning, I received an email from Elaine informing me of another Islamic conspiracy on our southern border. This one gives Muslims a wide open entry directly onto a Native American Reservation on Arizona's border with Mexico. As you know, Native American Tribes have their own law enforcement networks totally separate from the State or Federal Agencies. The Muslims are there, recruiting converts and doing business between this tribe and Turkey, a Muslim nation.
The facts about this Muslim/Native American union is in the latter part of the article from American Minute's Bill Federer.  Here is the email I received from Elaine this morning ...

Pastor Blair,
Thanks for using the article in your blog.  Since I found the article by Judicial Watch, I have since found another interesting read that, in my opinion, ties together with Judicial Watch's alert.  The average person is not aware of an American Indian Tribe closely connected with ISIS and that provides them with accommodations not accessible to local law enforcement--tribes have their own law enforcement.  The link I am listing provides a lengthy education and at the bottom it mentions Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, who is reportedly positioning himself to be considered as the caliph of the reemerging Islamic Caliphate, involvement with American Indian reservations, particularly the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation, located in southwestern and central Arizona. 

The first link is an identification of the Indian Tribe's location etc.
The second link is the article I mentioned above from American Minute. RB

Now Who's At Fault Here, Burger King or King Obama ?

Common Sense Commentary: A bunch of politicians who not only can't balance the national budget but goes deeper into a black hole of debt every year for decades, and now owes more than 17 Trillion dollars to its citizens and foreigners all over the world, shouldn't be giving financial advice. Even worse than their advice is their intimidation and punishment of citizens and businesses who struggle constantly to balance their budgets and pay that same government the highest "total" taxes in the world. Mr. Obama says they are "unpatriotic".  That is just another presidential lie. What IS unpatriotic is the way he and his fellow Socialist Liberals are driving our ship of state into the rocky cliffs under our Constitutional Lighthouse. Theirs is the mental aptitude of drunken pirates. RB

The Government Guilt Trip for Your Money

By Jocelynn Smith, Managing Editor
Dear Sovereign Investor,
Burger King (NYSE:BKW) was crucified in the media this week after it announced that it was not only purchasing Canadian company Tim Hortons (NYSE:THI) but that it was also moving its address to Canada,  benefiting from a so-called tax inversion.

President Obama calls it something else — an “unpatriotic loophole.”

But, of course he would say that, as ridiculous as it is. He has to.

First, Burger King pays an average corporate tax of 27.5% compared with Tim Hortons’ average tax of 27% in Canada. Not a huge difference.  However, Burger King will benefit because it won’t be paying American taxes on what it earns in South Africa or Colombia or the 93 other countries where it has franchises. American companies share this taxation “privilege” with only one other country in the world — Libya.

And second, the idea that a tax inversion is an “unpatriotic loophole” is just silly. What could be more American than saving a few bucks? Are you telling me that Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown — the gentleman calling for a boycott of Burger King because of its move to Canada — doesn’t take advantage of every deduction and loophole available to him when he files his taxes every year? Are the rest of Americans who take joy in cutting down their tax liability “unpatriotic” as well?

When you consider that the U.S. government has tallied up a debt of more than $17 trillion and doesn’t show any sign of stopping, do you want to throw your hard-earned money down that bottomless pit to nowhere?

No, I didn’t think so.

As for the companies that are seeking a tax inversion to cut down their tax liabilities, this isn’t about patriotism. It’s business. And the money these companies don’t toss down the bottomless pit of government spending can be used for brilliant things such as reinvesting and growing their business, creating new jobs, paying higher wages to employees and even redistributing those funds to shareholders in the form of dividends.

Protecting your wealth isn’t unpatriotic, but responsible and wise — and it’s not unpatriotic to look outside the U.S. for these kinds of breaks. The American government is in a bind with debt and it can’t see a way out of it without the money it can grab from both corporations and individual citizens. We at the Sovereign Society remain steadfast in our resolve to find you the best asset protection avenues and investments that will keep your money in your pocket rather than Uncle Sam’s.

Terrorist Alert At The El Paso Border Crossings From Judicial Watch

Common Sense Commentary: I have no "Common Sense Comments" on the grievous, pitiable situation in our country and on it's borders, except to say, "Mr. Obama, stop playing footsie with Muslim terrorists, Mexican drug runners and Illegal aliens, and defend our Constitution, our laws and our country instead of pacifying the enemies of Freedom and violators of our laws. RB

The following alert was published in Judicial Watch today but has apparently been removed. However, you can google the title below and find it. They have previously warned of the likelihood of Islamic terrorists taking advantage of our open southern border to enter our country with weapons of mass destruction. The Mexican city of Juarez, across from El Paso, is controlled, to a great extent, by Mexican drug runners who are murderers of hundreds in Mexico. They would no doubt assist or co-operate with Islamist terrorists for enough money. RB

Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border
From Judicial Watch    AUGUST 29, 2014

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. 

Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one Judicial Watch source. 

“It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.

The disturbing inside intelligence comes on the heels of news reports revealing that U.S. intelligence has picked up increased chatter among Islamist terror networks approaching the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. While these terrorists reportedly plan their attack just outside the U.S., President Obama admits that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to combat ISIS. “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” the commander-in-chief said this week during a White House press briefing. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggest that folks are getting a little further ahead of what we’re at than what we currently are.”

The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”

These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy.

Einstein's "Sticks And Stones War"

Common Sense Commentary: What an opportune time for the rise of Anti-Christ, the Tribulation Period and the Second Comming of Jesus Christ

Einstein said:

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but 
World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

Gerald Celente, World renowned 
trends forecaster said this week:

it’s very important to look at what oil prices are doing.  Brent Crude is still trading around $102, and this is in the midst of a global economic slowdown.  We are not looking at demand increasing, instead we are looking at supply decreasing at a time when there is uncertainty in the Middle East.

Libya is in the midst of a civil war, so that oil is off the market.  And the oil supply coming out of Iraq is is down as well.  And yet oil prices are declining.  Oil prices, to me, are the canary in the economic mineshaft, and the canary is screaming, ‘Watch out, it’s getting worse down here -- you better pay attention.’”

This, today from the Washington Times:

‘Significant increase’ in terror chatter as haunting anniversary of 9/11 nears

- The Washington Times - Thursday, August 28, 2014

The U.S. intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears.
“We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze.
While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”
Deciphering chatter is more difficult than in previous years because of the rise of the Islamic State group, which threatens to drain al Qaeda of resources as it asserts dominance Iraq and Syria. Like al Qaeda, Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has openly declared its intent to bring terror to American interests around the globe.
“The threat is two-fold because ISIS is in war with core al Qaeda,” former CIA case officer Brian Fairchild told The Blaze. “ISIS was kicked out of al Qaeda in February and they’ve been fighting each other internally for leadership. ISIS is winning right now. They have captured the imagination of young Muslims from around the world and depriving al Qaeda of its own fighters. Al Qaeda is split down the middle and now you have 9/11 [anniversary approaching]. It would be beneficial to both camps that on 9/11, some great attack in the United States takes place,” he added.
The Islamic State executed American photojournalist James Foley on Aug. 19, and has used social media platforms to threaten terror attacks on American soil.
Chicago’s WGN network recently reported that a tweet from the terror group on June 20 includes a picture taken on Michigan Ave. The tweet reads “Soldiers of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria will pass from here soon.” An Arabic message held up in the picture was translated “We are in your streets.”

Say What You Will, No Repetitive Chorus Blesses A Christian Soul Like The Great Old Hymns

Common Sense Commentary: There are a few old hymns which have words and phrases even a Doctor of Theology can't understand; but they are few. The great old hymns we older Christians have sung, in church and out, all of our lives, all have a golden message and a silver melody. Those are the ones you will find yourself singing when you or a loved one is dying. And they are also the ones which will outlast and still be sung by Christians when these new 10,000 choruses, with six words repeated twelve times, have long been forgotten like yellow polyester suits. Too many of these hollow but cute little jingles sung in church are like rap or hip hop in a bar. You have to drunk or stupid to like them. You seldom hear those great old hymns anymore, even in Fundamental, Independent Baptist Churches, but those old hymns lie quietly in old song books, in the closet, awaiting spiritual hunger and hard times. When the economy crashes, businesses go bankrupt, there is rioting in the streets, food stamps and welfare stop, and people are really suffering and hungry, that tiddledie winks little plastic chorus just ain't going to satisfy your soul or comfort your mind. The Old Rugged Cross is going to resurrect from that dusty old hymnal and be sweet to your ears and dry spirit. Listen to this great old hymn and let your born again self tell you how it compares with most of the miniature songs you hear in most churches these days.

My Younger Sister Died Today

Common Sense Commentary:

The benefits to her far exceed her lose. Alta was ... and still is a true, born again, believer in Jesus Christ as Lord of her life. Of all the hundreds of people I have seen in the dying process, her death was the most desirable. As the Apostle Paul said, "I .... having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better ...." Phil. 1:23. Her death was quick, almost painless and allowed her just enough time to say good-by to those she loved. Just three weeks ago, at 81, she drove the 150 miles, from her home, to visit our older sister Betty and my wife, Bettie, her best school-girl friend, and me. Alta was her usual vibrant, healthy self, and we had a happy time remembering. Back at home, she felt a little sick and saw her doctor two weeks ago. Within hours she was told she had a very fast developing cancer. Her three daughters rushed to her side  Our son Ron drove me, sister Betty and Betty's daughter to see Alta. We wanted to pray with her and comfort her and her girls ... but they were already comforted by our Great Comforter. Alta was weak and sleeping most of the time, but painless and looking forward to seeing our Lord, and her husband Ed, our Mom and Dad, and all her other friends and kin who preceded us to glory. Our brother Tommy joined us around Alta's bed. We four siblings, and everyone there, joined hands in prayer and praise to our wonderful, merciful Lord for the blessed hope we have in Christ. We left knowing we would not see our sister again, in this life, but would soon join her in God's glory. Alta died in perfect peace early this morning and was caught up into the glorious presence of Him who is "the way, the truth and the life". See you soon Sis. RB

"For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." Romans 8:13-18.

"We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of gloryWhile we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal." 2 Cor. 4:13-18.

When You Are Depressed Or Feel Sorry For Yourself ...Visit This Amazing Man

Common Sense Commentary: One of the saddest things I know is to hear perfectly healthy people with every modern convenience and everything to live for ... complain or gripe about the least little inconvenience, disappointment or pain. Strangely, it seems, those with the most "stuff" complain the most, especially those with the most government aid. They appear always to want more and more. Some of the happiest, most content people I have ever seen were living in grass huts with barely enough to survive but were singing the praises of God. When I was in High School there was a girl graduating whose father owned the G.M. dealership in our town. He gave her a new sports Chevy for her graduation present. She was so disappointed, she cried because it wasn't a Cadillac.

Jesus admonished complainers, "... murmur not among yourselves...." John 6:43.
Jude, speaking of wicked men, said, "These are murmurers, complainers...." Jude 16.
Apostle Paul was a Spirit filled spokesman for our Lord. One of the things which made him so was his contentment in Christ ... ".... I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content." Phil.4:11. It was he who counseled young Timothy that "Godliness with contentment is great gain." 1Tim.6:6. Paul gave his reason, and ours, that we Christians should be content ...
"... Be content with such things as ye have; for He (Jesus) hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." Heb.13:5. RB

 This introduction is by the owner of the farm where Chris works.
And we gripe about the little things in life.
Take a few minutes to watch the following video of Chris Koch from Nanton Alberta.
He spends his spring, summer and fall working on our farm in Torquay Saskatchewan.
Chris runs the planter & sprayer in the spring, and then a combine in the fall.
During the winter he does some public speaking with a theme called "If I Can".
A feature video was recently done on Chris's life and farming. I 'm sure you will enjoy his story - if you have kids show it to them.​

To All Muslims & Atheistic Communists: Compare This Angel With Mecca & North Korea

Common Sense Commentary: You guys can argue against God, Christianity, Freedom and the American dream till you are blue in the face. You can undermine, lie and kill till you are knee deep in blood. Yes, your anti Christian war on us, our Bible, our Churches and, our Great God will, briefly, put your heresy and your anti-Christ on the World's Throne. But, for your eternal soul's sake, compare this little human angel, a Christian and a South Korean, with Mecca or North Korea. In 1950/51, as a Marine, I fought in North and South Korea. I saw hundreds of innocent South Koreans, hand tied behind them, shot in the back of the head, rotting in ditches on the road from South to North Korea. Because we went to South Korea's aid, when they were attacked by the North Korean atheistic Communists, and drove them back into North Korea, and saved their nation, they are now a great nation and have since become 25% professing Christians. Some of the largest Christian Churches in the world are in South Korea.  Here is the product of Christian Faith, Freedom, Love, The Holy Bible and Christian people who took the Gospel of Christ to the South Koreans. Compare this little Christian girl with what your false god and false doctrine produces... hate, beheadings, terrorism, broken lives and mass death. RB

Tomorrow's Cure For Today's Obesity Is Hunger

Common Sense Commentary: For whatsoever a nation sows, that shall it also reap.

If you are so put off at the money grubbing, greedy methods now employed by the companies you deal with on the phone these days, you haven't seen anything yet. The reason your cell phone, land line, Internet, TV, auto mechanic etc etc companies feel forced to squeeze more money out of you is because their suppliers are doing the same to them. Our failing free enterprise system is not because of capitalism or the American way, it is because our government leaders have allowed mentally deficient "experts" to undermine Free Enterprise, which has always worked, for their idea of "a better method" ... bigger government and socialism which has never worked.

Our government has put itself between a rock and a hard place. It is in a vice like squeeze between gargantuan debt and an unsustainable, near zero interest rate which is about to leap out of its rigged restraint and force them to reinvent another new name for Quantitative Easing (massive money printing).

Politicians created this mess in the national kitchen sink and have let the kitchen get so deep in rancid rotting grease that letting it explode and burn is their only option ... now. It cannot simply "be fixed". Since the U.S. dollar is the reserve currency of the world, we have not only abused our own resulting wealth, but have influenced the rest of the world down the same prim-rose path which has led us into a financial and moral abyss of terminal addiction to free everything from government.

Not only that, but all businesses are now feeling forced to look for lower costs from suppliers off shore, and are thereby causing more jobs lost here in the U.S. The rising costs of food are not because your grocer just decided to increase prices to make more money. His own prices for that supply of food are being raised on him. He can't stay in business if he doesn't pass the increase on to you and me. It is the government induced, failing American Free Enterprise System that has caused the problem.

What's happening in Ferguson, Missouri is not "all" about a cop shooting a young black man who was beating him up. There is a fever pitch developing in the most affected communities of our country because of a great loss of jobs, higher food, gas and other costs. The problem, created by our promiscuous, Liberal government, is getting out of hand and feeding upon itself.

One of the next shoes to fall will be, as the Fed tries to end "Quantitative Easing" (excessive money printing) which will cause interest rates to rise. The explosive reaction will be like trying to get a drug addict to kick his habit. In his foggy mind, that's like asking him to stop breathing. Kicking his mother, wife or the police is easier than kicking his drug addiction.

The Charlie McCarthy news media has mouthed the words of our Edgar Bergen government with a steady stream of false statistics, economic propaganda, free gov. money and a train load of other free stuff ... which has addicted the whole nation to a constant higher high.

Well folks, the only cure for today's free stuff drug high is tomorrow's cut-off of the "dope" supply.
Like I said in my title, "Tomorrow's Cure For Today's Obesity Is Hunger" and hunger drives average people to desperate actions to stay alive ... or doped up ... which ever hurts worse. RB

The Obituary Of Our Democratic Republic Is Written In The Pages Of History

Common Sense Commentary: The History of nations confirms the fact that no Democracy has lasted beyond a designated point of change which always comes to past. RB

The Continual Obituary Of Democracies

In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence: 

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."
The Obituary follows:

Born 1776, Died 2016
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in 
 St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election: 

Number of States won by:         Obama: 19               Romney: 29
Square miles of land won by:    Obama: 580,000      Romney: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million  Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:                                              

Obama: 13.2             Romney: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
"complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of
 democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase..

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to the twenty million criminal invaders called illegals - and they vote - then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

The Verse You Have Never Heard Of The Star Spangled Banner

Common Sense Commentary: It was sung by a retired Marine, at a Tea Party gathering. He wanted to illustrate what America has left out of the education and training of our young people. This video testifies to four facts. 1. America has blindly allowed at least half of the "glorious" principles, upon which this country was built, to be abandoned.  2. Our Star Spangled Banner, Old Glory, has been stripped of that old glory and most Americans have no idea what its "old glory" even is. 3. The resounding applause and cheers, by 100% of those Tea Partiers, following that Marine's singing of our National Anthem, proves what kind of Americans the Tea Party is composed of. 4. It also proves that the Major News Media is putting out lying propaganda against the Tea Party. They are true, level headed, honest, American patriots, not a bunch of crazies as the Media portrays. RB

Here is both verses as sung by an old Marine which exalts the Old Glory of "Christian America". RB

What Is An EMP (Electronic Magnetic Pulse) And How Would It Play Out In America?

Common Sense Commentary: There is a very pertinent adage which observes this word of wisdom.

"It is far better to prepare yourself for what doesn't happen than not to prepare yourself for what does."

One of the things which will definitely happen, in your future, is a Katrina Hurricane, Electrical Failure, Tornado, Holocaust, Terrorist Attack on our infrastructure, an Electric Magnetic Pulse power grid failure or something yet unknown. Though all these things have happened before, for some mysterious reason 95% of people are not prepared when they do happen. The odds of something like the above happening to you, in your lifetime, are too great not to be physically prepared for at least a few days of no electricity.

This first link from FOX News commentator Judge Jeanine on our failing power grid and the likelihood of an EMP affecting our antiquated power grid system is real and very possible.

The second link, below, is what a power grid failure would be like if it lasted a few days. Don't panic, but every one of you needs to see this National Geographic depiction of dozens of amateur  cell phone and smart phone reporting on the horrors of a ten day American electric grid failure and blackout. This one didn't really happen, but something similar has never been more likely than now, in the US. There are a dozen scenarios which could make this a reality.

Another Courageous, American, Female Patriot Speaks Out Against Tyranny

Common Sense Commentary: Our inclination is to assume we need a real, loyal, masculine, patriotic, man to arise from the masses who can take the leadership of our faltering nation and restore our Constitution and our freedoms.  It is hard to miss the fact that more and more women are stepping forward and speaking out against the growing tyranny of this dictatorial President. It reminds me of another moment when the Nation of Israel had been taken over by a wicked tyrant. God raised up a woman, to lead the nation, who was the best man in Israel. Her name was Deborah and she was the Judge of Israel at that moment in history.

And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD, when Ehud was dead. And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, that reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host was Sisera.... And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he (Sisera) had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel. And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment. And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam ...., and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men .... And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand. And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not goAnd she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh. And Barak .... went up with ten thousand men .... and Deborah went up with him.....And Deborah said unto Barak, Up; for this is the day in which the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand: is not the LORD gone out before thee? So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him.... And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak.... Judges 4:1-15.

Here is another Courageous American Deborah..... RB

Maureen Scott is an ardent American patriot who was born in PittsburghPA , and retired to RichmondVA , in 2000. Free from the nine-to-five grind of writing for employers and clients, she began writing political commentary to please herself and express her convictions.

The accomplishment of which she is most proud is her volunteer work at an Army base where she looked into the eyes and hearts of the service members who protect our country.

Our Pledge of Allegiance, a military band playing the National Anthem, and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, inspire her passion and views. Her life is guided by a firm belief that truth is the most important virtue, and that God knows what He is doing with her.

The Architect of Destruction

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.
It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America ..

Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," (no.he gets goose bumps when he hears the '''Muslim call to prayer"""(his words)))))or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of " America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday - or someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America , penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.
Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn't really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.

He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behaviour, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.

    · Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

     · Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

     · Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

To Whom Does The Land Of Israel Belong?

Common Sense Commentary: I love it when an honest man baits his hook, casts it into the water and gives a lying opponent plenty of line before he sets his hook and reels in the liar like a helpless fish for the world to see.


An Israeli sense of humor at the United Nations set the record straight.

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

The representative from Israel began: "Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, "What a good opportunity to have a bath!"

Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Palestinian had stolen them!

The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and shouted "What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there then."

The Israeli representative smiled and said "And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech."

Living On Borrowed Time Ain't Just For Old Folks

Common Sense Commentary: Read the tombstones... There are all ages out there in the cemetery.

We are all on God's "Time Debit". We have no free time we own ... guaranteed. "Our times are in His hand." Psm.31:15.  When God is ready for you, He doesn't have to look for a way to cancel you out, delete you, shut you down or call you home ... He has all the ways. He owns the air we breath and our ability to breath it. We are all on God's "Life Support System". All He has to do is remove His hand and you are dead, whatever the pathologist says is the cause.  Breathing is God's art official respiration.

I am neither happy nor unhappy with my old age. It is what it is ... old. Some call it "elderly"... That's nice. Others say, "Senior Citizen" ... a kind way of saying "old". I'm a realist who wants the facts. My body is not 83 1/2 years young but 83 1/2 years old. If that ain't old ... what is?  Its my brain that's young. I told a young man the other day I was nearer 70 than 60. He guessed 69. I told him he was not even close.

Old age is inconvenient but not yet terminal ... and still better than that alternative. It is often frustrating when you feel young in your mind but can't remember where you left your glasses, or car keys, or car. Every old person has stood in a large parking lot ... looking in all directions for their car ... certain someone has stolen it. Just keep walking in large circles, pressing the emergency alarm on your car key ... You will find it. I can't hear half of what is said and often lose my thought or vocabulary ... or can't walk after sitting awhile. Old age ain't for sissies, but nobody ever said I was one of those.

Actually, I wouldn't want to be young again. Old age has many benefits as well as liabilities. Lust, for anything, other than rest and patience, is pretty well gone. My mistakes seldom affect anyone but me any more. That's a relief.  When I realize I may have a lot of suffering to endure in the near future ... and will soon even die, I still wouldn't trade me for a newer model. Neither would I trade my problems and regrets for anyone else's and I have never wanted to be someone else. I have met and counseled too many people, in my life, who wanted to trade lives with someone who "looked" happy or rich or famous. I wouldn't even like to live my own life over again so I could correct mistakes, sins, actions or words. I probably wouldn't do any better the second time anyway.

I can honestly say, I enjoy life as much now as ever before... but in a different way. The really good things in life mean much more to me and the bad things have no appeal whatever. I have striven for that all my life. Why would I now give it up?

I can't say with the Apostle Paul, "I have a desire to depart...." He was obviously much more spiritual than I. I want to live as long as God wants me to ... and not a minute longer. I don't want to suffer the pangs of death, but that is His department, not mine.

So, you young and middle aged people, don't worry about getting old. It really isn't all that bad ... compared to that other alternative ... or even having to endure the follies of youth ... again. The worst thing I can think of is to live to be much over 100. But I don't know... I've never been there... Maybe I will like it.

Whatever age you are, concentrate on loving God, loving your family, the souls of people, loving life, good friends, the success of others, a sunrise or sunset, rain, rest, little children, old dogs and a good laugh. Practice it while you are young so it becomes who you are. Gravestones have "en-graved" on them all ages ... from infants to centenarians.  RB
