Outlaw Government

Article about fraudulent federal debt tracking as an answer to the debt limit

Every day the outrages come, and every day they are more incredible. In order to avoid transgressing the U.S. debt limit which was reached back in March, the federal government has simply ceased to update the numbers. The silence from the so-called Republican congressional majority opposition is deafening.

Isaiah 10:14 describes to a T what our President has done and how the so-called opposition in Congress has responded: “My hand has found like a nest the wealth of the peoples; and as one gathers eggs that have been forsaken, so I have gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved a wing or opened the mouth or chirped.”

The nation has been utterly plundered, and no one has lifted a wing or even chirped.

What is happening this very day was prophesied by Isaiah. Don’t think for a moment that the U.S. is not in Bible prophecy. I think it features robustly, though not by name. Revelation 17:11 is intriguing.

Baby steps

Pope Francis is uniting the religious hierarchies

In much the same way that President Obama has proceeded with his fundamental transformation of America and, as Isaiah 10:14 says, “there was none that moved a wing, or opened the mouth, or chirped”, likewise Pope Francis has swept the world, uniting the vestiges of apostate, hierarchical Christianity, and seemingly overnight, overturning long held church positions on abortion, homosexuality, socialism and evolution. In effect, Pope Francis seems to be fundamentally transforming the Catholic Church. Mr. Obama and Pope Francis seem to be two peas in a pod doctrinally. Will there be a union of the Roman hierarchy with Islam in the near future as well? It will be interesting to see what results when these two prominent figures on the world stage meet together in September.

Our increasingly enlightened society

I was certainly not surprised by the results of this Gallup poll, but it was intriguing and compelling because there is comparative data for the exact same question going back all the way to 1937.

In 1937, 18% of Americans said they would vote for an otherwise well qualified candidate for president who happened to be an atheist (i.e. denies the existence of God). In 2015, 58% of Americans said they would do the same. Here is a pdf of the study.

How enlightened we’ve become! Psalm 14:1 says unequivocally that atheists are fools. This is representative of how fast a society can plummet spiritually. This study demonstrates that substantial majority of Americans are either completely ignorant of what the Bible says about atheists or they disagree with it. In the space of one lifetime this change has occurred.

Perhaps Satan is winning the long war, or perhaps the 40% (58% – 18%) of people who changed their tune regarding the suitability of an atheist president derive their opinions on such matters based upon the herd rather than as a result of independent thought. Maybe back in 1937 there was a higher percentage of followers of Christ in America, or maybe there was a similar percentage, and the fact that Biblical understanding was greater at that time among all Americans moderated public opinion against atheism.

Which brings up an interesting question: can someone who follows the herd be a follower of Christ? Matthew 7:13-14 indicates otherwise…

It is also interesting that the same Gallup polling organization in December, 2014 found that 77% of Americans identified themselves as Christians and 76% believed that the Bible was the Word of God. So there is a maximum of 24% (100% – 76%) out of the 58% of people who would vote for an atheist that might do so because they themselves don’t subscribe to the divine authority of the scriptures. That means that AT LEAST 34% of Americans believe the Bible is God’s word but either haven’t bothered to read it or don’t allow it to inform their decisions/opinions!

The fool has said in his heart “There is no God”. How much bigger a fool is the one who acknowledges the divine authorship of the scriptures but doesn’t bother to see what they say or allow them to guide his opinions?

Do we need to reevaluate our patriotism?

Here’s a story about a young lady in the Marine Corps: Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling court-martialed for displaying a Bible verse

Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling

Christians have long been among the most staunch of American patriots, supporting and populating the ranks of our courageous military.

But there’s a new commander in chief. And under his leadership, the U.S. military appears to be being systematically and vigorously purged of Christian influence.

I would not willingly send a son or daughter of mine into today’s U.S. military. Our military exists to defend our borders and the constitutional freedoms that we hold dear.

The marine was court-martialed for refusing to obey a direct order from a superior officer (who demanded that she take down the Bible verse). Our service men and women are only duty-bound to obey LAWFUL direct orders. This was an unlawful order, as it violates the supreme law of the land, the constitution, which the marine was sworn to defend.

Obama and the Pope

I was struck the other day by a photo on the cover of the Wall Street Journal where an imposing looking Pope Francis shakes hands and gives a very Obamaesque “you better do what I say or else” death glare to an intimidated-looking Vladimir Putin.

The Pope & Putin

Compare with…

Obama glares at Netanyahu

The pope has been a walking billboard for the Democrat party platform since he took office, and last week he took another page out of their playbook and leaked an advance copy of his climate change encyclical, all the while feigning outrage at such a “heinous act” as the leak. If you believe that, I’ve got some land in the everglades to sell you.

Global warming is a religion, so it might as well have the Pope as its new spokesman. Al Gore definitely earned his GW sainthood, and the baton has been passed to Francis. This pope is very popular (94% favorability in the U.S.). He will undoubtedly lose a little ground with this, but he’s got juice to spare. This Pope has made important step toward creating a fusion of progressive ideology and religion. He is also promoting a one-world state. The next step is a furtherance of his overtures toward Islam. Whether and how fast this happens will be an indicator of how close we are to the predictions of Revelation 13. Stay tuned!

Remaking the monarchy

The presidency has apparently become an unassailable monarchy. The supreme court voted 6-3 to place the exclusive prerogative for recognizing nations in the hands of the president. News Article

Nowhere does the constitution place any such power in the hands of the executive. The closest thing within the constitution to “recognizing” a nation is embodied within the terms for making treaties. All treaties must be confirmed by a supermajority of the senate. The court should have designated that the senate confirm the president’s assessment of Jerusalem with a supermajority.

Also, when the constitution doesn’t stipulate something, what should be the tiebreaker? Of the three branches of government, the congress by default holds the highest rank. After all they are Article I. Article II is the executive and Article III is the court. So if ANYBODY should have unchecked authority to make such a decision, it should be the Congress, not the president. Otherwise, why wouldn’t the president be able to override previously ratified treaties by simply deciding to no longer recognize the legitimacy of the nation with which the treaty was made?

The pendulum has swung as far in the direction of absolute executive authority as it can possibly go. Constitutional restraint has all but completely unraveled. And once powers like this are granted to a president, they’ll never be reclaimed, because any person who attains the white house will be unlikely to relinquish them. Sad day.
