Jack Cashill, who is producing a new film documenting the 2009 March for Life in Washington, D.C., writes in his article, “Media malpractice at the March for Life,” “We were commissioned to create this video to set the media record straight. Although I had not attended the March before, I knew enough about the way the media worked to suspect that a little straightening was in order.
“The media did not disappoint. Their coverage confirmed my most paranoid suspicions and shocked even the apolitical among our (film) crew.
“Energized by (Barry Soetoro a/k/a) Obama's promise to expand the abortion franchise, pro-life activists flooded into D.C. from all over Canada and America. To capture some sliver of this movement, we had put camera crews on buses out of Kansas, Missouri and Alabama.
“By noon of the 22nd the marchers had gathered on the Mall, as impressively colorful, diverse and good-spirited a gathering as I have ever seen, perhaps three-quarters of them under 25.
“I am told it was the best-attended march ever. The crowd was massive, and I found myself right in the middle of it, a literally overwhelming experience, alleviated by the company of the actress Jennifer O'Neill, our on-camera narrator.
“So large was the crowd, in fact, that it took us an hour of shuffling – The Shuffle for Life? – before we actually hit the street and begin the long walk up Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court Building, just east of the Capitol.
“To get an accurate count of the participants, we put one camera on a rooftop en route. I would estimate about 300,000 marchers . . .”
Again, predictably the Opposition Media refused to acknowledge this great event. Get a glimpse of this event in the video embedded below.
The film title is taken from Psalm 139: 16:
"Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book were all written the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them."

Pelosi & Pals' Payoffs and Pork Bill
According to a recent post on FRCblog, “(T)he Congressional Budget Office (CBO) recently found that the cost of the Pelosi-Reid stimulus package now exceeds $1.1 trillion. CBO also estimated that only 7 percent of infrastructure money would make its way into the economy by the end of the year and only 38 percent would be spent by the end of the 2010 fiscal year. Senator Jeff Session's (R-Ala.) office estimates the actual number going to tangible road and bridge construction is just a little more than 3 percent.
“Where is this money going to? A not exhaustive look at the 1,588 page legislation, H.R. 1, "The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009" shows the bill is more payoffs and pork then stimulus . . ."
Here are a few examples of the many political payoffs and the slices of pork that make up the falsely named economic "stimulus package." It is an appropriations bill that bypasses all the Congressional debate and public scrutiny. As a whole it is a shameful and egregious waste of taxpayer money. No Senate Republican or principled Democratic Senator should vote for this horrific bill.
The following list is a condensed version of the one outlined on the FRCblog post.
(I.) To the "Green" Lobby –(Environmental extremists)
$600 Million To Buy New Cars For Government Workers (Page 89)
These cars would be "green" friendly cars - however very few gas pumps have the right gas to run these cars. The Federal government already spends $3.5 billion a year.
(II.) To the Unions - (The Leftist Teacher's Unions, etc)
"$150 billion in new federal spending, a vast two-year investment that would more than double the Department of Education's current budget. The proposed emergency expenditures on nearly every realm of education, including school renovation, special education, Head Start and grants to needy college students" Sam Dillon, "Stimulus Plan Would Provide Flood of Aid to Education," New York Times. January 27, 2009. NOTE: Private and religious schools are excluded.
(III.) To the Abortion Industry - (The Pro-Death Crowd)
Representative Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) inserted in the original bill billions of dollars for family planning groups, including the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. Pressure and public exposure from Congressional Republicans forced the Democrats to remove such funding from this bill. However the bill still provides billions in reforming the health care system and working towards nationalized health care - with little to no debate.
$2.7B in NIH grants which would be targeted to among other things embryonic stem cell experimentation. (Page 56)
(IV.) Other Special Interests - (Homosexual Activists, etc.)
$3 Billion for Prevention & Wellness Programs, Including $335 million for STD Education and Prevention -- Recent government expenditures in this area include
· a transgender beauty pageant in San Francisco that advertised available HIV testing and
· an event called "Got Love? - Flirt/Date/Score" that taught participants how "to flirt with greater finesse."
$83 billion for the earned income credit for people who don't pay income tax. SOURCE Wall Street Journal
$4.19 billion open to ACORN. The Pelosi-Reid bill makes groups like ACORN eligible for a $4.19 billion pot of money for "neighborhood stabilization activities."
Some of the biggest winners in the package are federal agencies and Congressional relatives:
$2 Billion for national parks. "A top House Republican is demanding an investigation into whether the more than $2 billion for national parks in the House stimulus package is proper in light of the fact that the chief lobbyist for the National Parks Conservation Association is the son of House Appropriations Committee Chairman David R. Obey (chief author of the bill.)" Stephen Dinan and S.A. Miller, "Stimulus has plum for Lawmakers Son," Washington Times, January 29, 2009.
$54 billion will go to federal programs that the Office of Management and Budget or the Government Accountability Office have already criticized as "ineffective" or unable to pass basic financial audits. SOURCE Wall Street Journal
$1.2 billion to the National Science Foundation (Page 46) "Chuck Grassley knows it when he sees it. The "it," of course, is pornography. And Grassley has seen it deep in a demurely titled section of a report from the National Science Foundation -- a report that says NSF employees have been spending significant amounts of company time on smut sites and in other explicit pursuits . . . In one particularly egregious case, the report says one NSF "senior official" was discovered to have spent as much as 20 percent of his working hours over a two-year interval 'viewing sexually explicit images and engaging in sexually explicit online 'chats' with various women.' Investigators calculated the value of the time lost at more than $58,000 -- for that employee alone." Andie Coller, "Grassley Launchers Porn Inquiry," Politico, January 29, 2009.

During President Barry Soetoro's (a/k/a Barack Obama) first week in office he posted his radical socialist agenda on the Whitehouse.gov website, he rebuked "torturing" Islamic terrorists, advanced the torture and killing of babies by signing an executive orders to close Guantanamo Bay and to export abortion funding abroad.
Then, during his first full week in office he attacks the free enterprise system setting in motion the creation and expansion of a socialist state through political payoffs, pork and patronage. He called this economy saving scheme a "stimulus package."
American taxpayers are being sold a bill of not-so-goods with this $819 billion dollar "stimulus" boondoggle. The flaw-filled porkibus appropriations package, misnamed “economic stimulus,” is being pushed by President and Chief Pusher Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Obama) and his gang of Clinton-Chicago political dealers. The only thing that it will stimulate is economic collapse. All that the so-called “stimulus” will bring is
· bigger government
· more debt
· wasteful giveaway programs, and
· more free enterprise stifling socialism
Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives stood in unanimity, along just short of a dozen brave Democrats, and said “no” to this lame measure. My hat’s off to those few courageous Dems and the Republican Party, which finally stood for something. The Republicans took a step toward what the Americans for Prosperity (AFP) referred to as, “Regaining their fiscally responsible brand.” This brand was badly tarnished by Bush and the Democratic-controlled Congress during the last two years.
All conservative and fiscally responsible Americans must get ready for a major fight that is shaping up in the U.S. Senate next week (Monday). We need to make sure that enough members of both parties will put the country's fiscal health above personal power and political patronage and slay the deficit-breathing and debt-spawning dragon.
DISSECTING THE DRAGON
This deceitful “stimulus package” includes everything on the big-government wish list from government health care rationing, to net neutrality Internet regulations, to earmarks for global warming computer modeling-- but nothing that would actually stimulate economic growth.
Some specific examples of the “stimulus” handouts include:
-$4.19 billion to ACORN, the advocacy group under investigation for voter registration fraud
-$600 million to buy new cars for government workers, and
-$335 million for adult sex workshops
Please join over 11,000 other Americans and me by signing AFP’s No Stimulus petition at www.NoStimulus.com to help stop this disastrous trillion-dollar debt scheme, known as the “Stimulus Package.” Spread the word and support the AFP so they can get the word out, too.
Much of this article was based on information received in an email from the Americans for Prosperty (AFP).
“Yeah, those crazy right-wingers probably believe some magical ball of gas in the sky causes it.”

After reading the first half of the list, I can safely say I wish that he would break 84% these promises, and most of the 16% that I wish he would keep will probably be among the ones that he doesn’t.
Here are about 40 of the promises that I wish he would keep:
Eliminate all oil and gas tax loopholes
Close loopholes in the corporate tax deductibility of CEO pay
End no-bid contracts above $25,000
Enforce pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) budget rules (This doesn’t nearly go far enough, of course.)
Forbid companies in bankruptcy from giving executives bonuses
Eliminate the higher subsidies to Medicare Advantage plans
Allow imported prescription drugs
Increase the Veterans Administration budget to recruit and retain more mental health professionals
Expand Veterans Centers in rural areas
Fully fund the Veterans Administration
Assure that the Veterans Administration budget is prepared as 'must-pass' legislation
Allow all veterans back into the Veterans Administration
Reduce the Veterans Benefits Administration claims backlog
Direct military leaders to end war in Iraq (This promise is listed as “kept”, but what really matters is the actual ending of the war, and not the talk.)
Begin removing combat brigades from Iraq
Present Iraq status-of-forces agreement to Congress for approval
No permanent bases in Iraq
Bring military pay more in line with the private sector, as measured by the employment cost index
Allow reserve families to take leave under the Family Medical Leave Act
Fully and properly equip troops
Review weapons programs
Establish transparency standards for military contractors
Set standards for when the government should hire defense contractors
Clarify legal status for defense contractor personnel
End the abuse of supplemental budgets for war
End the use of extreme rendition
Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center
Develop an alternative to President Bush's Military Commissions Act on handling detainees
Revise the Patriot Act to increase oversight on government surveillance (This doesn’t go far enough. We should completely get rid of the Patriot Act.)
End warrantless wiretaps
Restore habeus corpus rights for "enemy combatants"
Mandate standards for securing personal data
Work to persuade the European Union to end credit guarantees to Iran
Grant Americans unrestricted rights to visit family and send money to Cuba
Urge China to stop manipulation of its currency value
Press China to end its support for regimes in Sudan, Burma, Iran and Zimbabwe
Centralize ethics and lobbying information for voters
Allow five days of public comment before signing bills
Require more disclosure and a waiting period for earmarks
Release presidential records (Promise kept according to politifact.com, but will he continue to keep it?)
Tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials (He has already compromised on this promise according to politifact.com.)

No, “Lie to Me” is a new television show on Fox. It is a one-hour long drama that portrays a crime solver, Dr. Cal Lightman, played by British-born movie actor Tim Roth. This crime solver is different. I do not watch much TV, since my indoor antenna can only pick up one or two local stations. I stumbled across “Lie to Me” on the Internet last week where I occasionally watch episodes of “House” and “Prison Break.”
I watched this show the other day over the Internet on the Fox website. It is scheduled to be on Wednesday evenings. It was interesting and entertaining. It is kind of a cross between “Monk” and “The Profiler.” “The Profiler,” which I watched a have watched a few times, played for a few seasons on NBC. If I recall the star of that show was some type of female psychic, who used her “powers” to solve cases. In this new show the star uses his powers of observation and ability read the body language, emotional and facial expressions to solve crimes.
According to selecttTV magazine, a publication of the Mount Vernon (Ohio) News Jay Bobbin writes, “The science of microexpression fuels “Lie to Me," . . . (which is) based on the work of University of California psychology professor Paul Ekman and premiered last Wednesday.
Bobbin adds, “Noted film star Tim Roth . . . makes his weekly series debut as Dr. Cal; Lightman, a specialist in gleaning information by closely watching a person’s facial and/or body language. His talent is sought by federal and local authorities as well as companies and individuals who hire his agency . . .”
Now, I wonder what Dr. Ekman would say about some of our current politicians and many lawyers. I would be especially interested in what he would say about our current President and Presidents Bush and Clinton!
I may try to catch a few more episodes of this new series, which is a mid season substitute and may or may not have a long-term future. I do think it will be successful.
“Because that means that the left wing comedians are doing a more critical job of covering the President than the liberal media.”

The Hot Issue:
Do you believe the planet has suffered irreversible damage from global warming?
No, if by global warming you mean that which is alleged to have been caused primarily by man.
To me global, warming is a green monster created by extreme environmentalists and fueled by a complicit leftist (opposition) media (ABC, CBS, CNN, etc.) Both of whom desire to weaken America and to see the emergence of a global socialist “utopia.” Also behind the push to create this false man-caused global warming, are academics and so-called researchers who stand to gain monetarily through the perpetuation of this giant green hoax. One of the deceitful global warming movement’s most infamous leaders is the charlatan-in-chief himself, Al Gore.
They, along with Congress, academia, and the courts OPPOSE most of the will, desires, values and beliefs of the vast majority of Americans, and that is why we call them the opposition media. It is much more reflective of who they are.
During the past presidential campaign the opposition media especially showed its true colors, which are mostly socialist red in hue. They proved to less than honest, disgustingly pro-Soetoro (Obama) and very subjective in their coverage. Sweet kisses and soft ball questions tossed at Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack H. Obama) loaded bazooka questions and live hand grenades were thrown at Sarah Palin, for example . . .
The opposition media no longer report the news, they manipulate, they censor it, and use it to further their debased leftist/socialist agenda. I agree with Sean Hannity, who often claims that 2008 was the year that journalism died in America. You really can’t believe anything you read in the paper or see or hear on any of the opposition media outlet.
No wonder the Left is so anxious to silence the real mainstream media, conservative talk radio. Conservative talk radio and its listeners reflect America much more than Katie Couric, Tom Brokaw or Charlie Gibson.

I periodically receive emails from NewsMax.com regarding their highlights of the late night TV talk shows. Here is one I received today.
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
● "During the inauguration ceremonies there were 2 million people crammed into the Mall and not one arrest. Not one crime was committed in Washington. Of course, that’ll all change now that Congress is back."
I disagree that there were 2 million people on the Mall, however I do agree with the bit about Congress committing crimes . . .
● "President (Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack) Obama has signed an executive order officially banning torture in the United States. So you know what that means . . . ABC may be forced to cancel “The View.”"
The Opposition Media (ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, NY Times, PBS, Washington Post et al) may also be forced to stop their tortuous, thoroughly biased, subjective, one-sided and slanted news coverage supporting the Democratic Party and pro-Soetoro (Obama) views, as well.
The Politico’s Andy Barr wrote Friday, “MSNBC host Chris Matthews suggested Friday that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) may not have the reading or writing ability needed to complete the book she is reportedly shopping . . .
"Matthews repeated his suggestion that Palin could not write the book later in the show. “The question is who actually will write the Palin book,” he said. “The only politician I know who can write is Barack Obama.”"
Jack Cashill contends that President Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Obama) and apparently Matthew's god or idol, in fact, had a ghost writer himself. Cashill says Soetoro (Obama) is the one incapable of writing such material as he allegedly has authored. Read Cashill's latest article, “Newly Found Article Confirms Obama “Dreams” Fraud.” In other articles by Mr. Cashill he argues with evidence that William “The Domestic Terrorist Turned Educator” Ayers wrote the book(s) for Soetoro/Obama. Chris Matthews is so enthralled with this deceiver that he is absolutely incapable of being objective.
The Left will do anything and everything to discredit and smear a real conservative and true Christian. Sarah Palin is a large target, because she has a real chance of giving President Barry Soetoro a run against his money and his Marxism in 2012. Therefore she is considered enemy number one, and must be destroyed beginning on the 3rd day of Soetoro's first term. She's second amendment armed and first amendment dangerous. The tempo of the bashing will just increase in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.
Sunday morning, T.D. sent me the following information from Americans for Prosperity (AFP). It is a petition requesting that President Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack H. Obama) not press the debt-expanding, economy-crushing corporate bailout scheme and government make-work projects.
Will you join AFP, T.D., and me in taking a stand in the first major policy battle of the new Administration?
You've seen the coverage of the approximately $1 trillion debt scheme pushed by Speaker Pelosi and President Soetoro (Obama) that's being called the "Stimulus Package."
Sadly, many politicians in Washington, DC really believe that driving our nation even deeper into debt and using our money for wasteful government spending boondoggles is the way to get us out of the current recession.
These political leaders don't realize that massive deficits, higher taxes, wasteful spending and heavy-handed regulation are primary reasons for the current recession.
You can fight back today by visiting www.NoStimulus.com and joining the growing army of taxpayers saying NO by signing Americans for Prosperity’s petition to stop this disastrous trillion-dollar debt scheme, known as the “Stimulus Package.”
It is critical that we send a loud and clear message to DC politicians that ordinary citizens simply cannot afford the crushing burden and devastating consequences of this initiative.
Let's try something novel – for a real CHANGE – let’s try to REDUCE America’s debt and deficit, not increase it. No more bailouts for anybody. Bailout America from her debilitating and destructive debt! Let the free market work. We do not need more socialistic policies, but less. Capitalism works, if the government would just get out of the way.
Please act now to make your voice heard -- and encourage your friends and family to do the same -- by signing AFP’s petition at www.NoStimulus.com.

Choosing the Truth or living a lie is no game!
Idolatry, blasphemy, unbelief, and disbelief are all negative words concerning religion. Idolatry is the worship of someone or something which is not the true God. Blasphemy is deliberate profane or contemptuous speech, writing, or action concerning God or anything held to be divine (1). Unbelief implies a lack of belief perhaps because of insufficient evidence (2). Disbelieve is a refusal to believe, the absence of belief, and the rejection of something as untrue (3).
Blasphemers, Unbelievers, Disbelievers & Idolaters
These terms are often used in the Koran and also in the Holy Bible. In Islam and Christianity the meanings of these terms are opposite making, the two religions eternally at odds with each other. Only one religion is correct, or neither religion is correct. They both cannot be correct. Nor do they have the same deity. You must choose which is correct by recognizing the truth. If you do not recognize the truth, and choose incorrectly: torment in eternal fire is your destiny (Surah 18:102 in the Koran and Revelation 20:15 in the Bible). It’s Truth or Consequences!, the choice is ultimately yours!
THE KORANIC ACCOUNT
Unbelievers are those who declare: “God is the Messiah, the son of Mary (4).”
They do blaspheme, who declare: “God is the Messiah, the son of Mary (5).”
They indeed have disbelieved who say: “Lo! Allah is the Messiah, son of Mary (6).”
Certainly they disbelieve who say: Surely Allah-He is the Messiah, son of Marium (7).
They indeed disbelieve who say: Surely, Allah-He is the Messiah, son of Mary (8).
God revealed His will to the angels, saying: “I shall be with you. Give courage to the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers! (9)”
When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying:) I am with you, so make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger (10)
When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every finger tip of them (11).
When the Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, so make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. So smite above the necks and smite every finger tip of them (12).
We (Allah and Gabriel) have prepared hell for the unbelievers to dwell in (13).
On that day We shall present hell to the disbelievers, plain to view (14).
Surely We have prepared hell for the entertainment of the unbelievers (15).
Surely We have prepared hell as an entertainment for the disbelievers (16).
Allah is only One God. Far is it removed from His transcendent majesty that he should have a son (17).
God is but one God. God forbid that He should have a son (18).
Allah is only one God: Far be it from His glory that He should have a son (19).
Allah is only one God. Far be it from His glory to have a son (20).
THE BIBLICAL ACCOUNT
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not (John 1:1-5).
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth (John 1:8-14).
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him (John 1:17,18).
There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born (John 3:1-4)?
Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Jesus answered (John 3:5-10).
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (John 14-19).
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (John 3:20-21).
The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him (John 3:35,36).
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him (John 5:22,23).
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount (II Peter 1:16-18).
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full (I John 1:1-4).
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh (Philippians 2:2,3).
Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith (Philippians 3:4-9):
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, (I Timothy 2:5-7).
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire(Revelation 20:11-15.
The Koran clearly states that God does not have a Son and that Jesus is not God. One translation of the Koran states that unbelievers claim Jesus is God. A revision of that translation states that it is blasphemy to call Jesus God or Allah. I do not know which is considered worse: Blasphemy or being an unbeliever? The Koran does not say what happens to blasphemers but it does say that unbelievers, idolaters, and disbelievers are to have their heads and finger tips removed. This is blatant savagery masquerading as a religion that some politicians including our former President dare to claim to be a “peaceful religion.”
The Holy Bible clearly states that Jesus is both God and man and that He has existed from eternity as God. He created all things.
We have the eye witness accounts of John, Peter and Paul. John said our hands have touched Him and beheld His glory. And John said His glory was as the only begotten of the Father.
Jesus provided grace and truth. By living a sinless life He fulfilled the law of God. As both God and man He represented man before God. As God He was able to receive in Himself the sins of the whole world and take the wrath of God against those sins and still survive. This enabled Him to be the only mediator between God and man. As man He could represent all mankind before God since mankind is all of one blood. As the infinite God He was able to reduce a finite number of sins to zero and be reunited with the Father since He Himself was sinless and immortal.
He died at the time of His own choosing and not as a result of the crucifixion. His body did not decay in the tomb. And His blood that was shed has never decayed. We have the Shroud of Turin as a witness to the deity and crucifixion of Jesus.
God the Father paid the price to forgive the sins of all mankind through Jesus. Whoever repents of their sins by confessing to God that they are a sinner and believing that Jesus died for them and invites Jesus into their heart through prayer will be saved. As scripture says, “Whosoever shall call on the name of Lord shall be saved (21).” And Jesus is the Lord.
God paid for the right for Him to forgive mankind of their sins. This satisfied His holiness and His justice, because He does not acquit sin. The God of the Koran acquits sin. He has no way of eliminating people’s sins. Overlooking the sin does not get rid of the sin. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins (Heb 9:22). This shows that the god of the Koran is neither holy nor just and that he is not the same god as the God of the Holy Bible.
Islam totally disregards the eyewitness accounts of those who saw Jesus before and after the resurrection. When the apostle Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthians he referred to over 500 people who had seen Jesus after His resurrection. And many of these witnesses were still living at that time (I Corinthians 15:6).
Jesus said that if you don’t honor the Son as you honor the Father, you don’t honor the Father. Islam does not honor Jesus as the Son of God. Therefore, Islam cannot and does not honor God.
Jesus said that people won’t come to Him because their deeds are evil. Islam will not allow people to go to Jesus for salvation, or even read the Bible on their own. This shows that Islam and its leaders are evil.
Jesus is the judge of the whole earth. Everyone will appear before Him for judgment at the end of the age. He will judge from a Great White Throne. And the people before Him will be judged according to their works. Whosoever’s name is not found written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Those who refuse to receive Jesus will be tormented by fire endlessly
According to the Koran, Christians are disbelievers. They have a personal relationship with God whereby they have experienced God’s manifestation to them. So they know that Islam is a false religion.
Muslims do not have a personal relationship with God. Therefore they have not had a personal contact with God whereby they know Him from experience. If you want to have your own personal relationship with God, you can pray this simple prayer, “Lord Jesus Christ please forgive me of my sins. and come into my heart and life.”

During his weekly Washington Watch Radio Show, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council interviewed U.S. Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas. Brownback was asked, “Did you find it ironic that the President outlawed the use of so-called torture against terrorists, but that he exported abortion to lands all across the world?”
Brownback responded thus, “You would think that people would see the connection to that. We are going pay for people to be killed, but we won’t allow anything of torture . . . I would like for us to start at the stopping of killing and move this on forward . . ."
The president and his comrades are more interested in promoting the cases of Islamic terrorist suspects than they are in protecting the life of the yet innocent unborn? This is a real conundrum.
President Soetoro Says by His Actions:
"Keep it Legal, E.x.p.a.n.d, and Export it!"
Did the president lie when he said he wanted to see abortions reduced? One of the first death defining decisions that President Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Obama) makes during his first few days in office is to execute an executive order reinstating the funding of foreign abortions.See the ABCNews.com article, "Obama Overturns 'Mexico City Policy' Implemented by Reagan.” It is the fateful harbinger of more pro-death policies and actions to come. Certainly this does not bode well for babies here and abroad.
Actually, it is just another step leading to the eventual demise of America.
Is this the change in the "hope and change" mantra that President Soetoro (a/k/a Obama) had in mind and proclaimed during his rhetoric driven presidential campaign of '07 and '08? It sure dashes the hope and dreams of many more developing human beings both here and abroad, doesn't it?

Worried more about fulfilling campaign promises and appeasing his rabid and radical base of supporters, President Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama) today signed an executive order to begin the process of closing down the terrorist cells at Guantanamo Bay. Apparently he has no clue what to do with these mainly murderous Muslim terrorists, yet to show he is a man of action, even if that action is wrong, he forges blindly ahead to usher in the further demise of America.
Isn't there more important priorities, more important business to be about than to focus attention of the enemies of America and worry about their well being? What about the keeping the 330 million Americans safe . . . like maybe closing the borders, enforcing the immigration laws, stopping the infiltration of drugs and terrorists into our country . . . ? Now THAT really WOULD mark a CHANGE . . .
“The inauguration (of President Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama) was also screened at 27 movie theaters across the nation.
“However, those who walked in accidentally said they thought the ending, where a guy with so little experience becomes president, was just too ridiculous to believe.”

Life: Imagine the Potential - Spot 1
Imagine the many lives that have been wasted (both the innocents murdered and the women having the abortions physically, psychologically and spiritually maimed and scarred) through abortion. Perhaps there were one or more George Washingtons or John Adams or Ronald Reagans. It is not hard to imagine how much greater and blessed America would be if 45+ million babies had not been brutally murdered through this wicked abortion procedure. One thing our economy would not have been in the shambles that it today. There would not have been a "need" or opportunity for the present illegal alien invasion.
Our current President Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama) may never have had the chance to be born if his mother were living today in our increasingly pro-death oriented society.

Some many people are saying how wonderful it is that Obama has been elected. This makes me sick. I don’t even like when some people who strongly opposed Obama are saying that because he’s our President, we should “support him”.
Well, count me out of it. Obama’s election to the Presidency is not just a bad thing. He is not just the worst President we have ever had, he is occupying the office illegally. We need to impeach ASAP! Is Obama going to appoint Timothy F. Geithner as Treasury Secretary who cheated on his taxes? Here is what we have to look forward to:
Same Patriot Act
Same Big Government
Same Washington Insiders
Same Socialist Policies
Same Taxpayer Funding of Unborn Baby Murdering
In other words, Worse than No Real Change!
And since we’re willing to sacrifice unborn babies for peace, it will be much worse than “No Change”! God will pour out his wrath on this nation, if we don’t repent! The deaths caused by Bush and his foolish wars will be a drop in the bucket compared to the carnage which will befall our nation in war during Obama’s term.

Here is a really funny bit from Comedy Central commenting on yesterday’s inaugural speech by President Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama. I saw this first at http://RealChoice.blogspot.com/. Excellent.
One of President Barry Soetoro's (a/k/a Barack Obama) first moves places social issues at the top of his “To Do” List. Soetoro/Obama wastes no time in laying out his radical pro-death (abortion) and pro-homosexual agenda.
The American Family Association (AFA) has provided an excellent introduction to some of these detestable plans they wish to inflict on America. Click Obama acts quickly, lays out his abortion and (homosexual) agenda to see where he intending to take us and how he plans to reshape American society. AFA reports in an email I received today that they interpret Soetoro/Obama’s “View is that unborn babies aren't worth protecting and that homosexuals deserve special rights.”
OneNewsNow.com reported earlier today, "Just hours after becoming president, the Whitehouse.gov website has laid out Barack Obama's agenda. Under a section of that agenda titled Civil Rights is a very detailed outline of what Obama plans to do for the homosexual community."
Another critical piece of information, which OneNewsNow.com reported and which the Opposition Media (ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, PBS, etc.) ignored or downplayed was, "Elsewhere on the Whitehouse.gov Agenda section (The Agenda - Women) is a statement noting Obama's longstanding support for abortion rights. On that issue, the "consistent champion of reproductive choice" -- as Obama is described on the website -- promises to stand against any effort to overturn Roe v. Wade, increase funding for "family planning and comprehensive sex education," and remove any insurance restrictions against contraception."
If you are like me and oppose taking the life of the unborn and oppose giving special rights and privileges to those who practice perverted sex, then we need to take act right now, even on the evening of Soetoro/Obama’s first full day as President!
* Send a letter or e-mail to President Obama.
Dear President Obama:
I strongly oppose your efforts to make it easy to kill the unborn child by doing away with all the rights the unborn has gained in the last 30 years. This goes against all that is good and decent, and humane. That child has the basic right enjoyed by all Americans, the right to life. I am appalled that you want to deny him or her that right.
I also oppose your effort to give special rights to a group of people based on their practicing of perverted sex. Your comparing perverted sexual behavior with the color of one’s skin is very offensive.
* Please EMAIL this blog to your family and friends so they can read about Obama's priorities. You can use the little letter logo at the end of this article under comments to send this blog article.
A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States . He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!"
The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am a Mexican."
The man goes on and encounters another passerby.
"Thank you for having such a beautiful country herein America ."
The person says, "I not American, I Vietnamese."
The new arrival walks farther, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says, "Thank you for wonderful America !"
That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Middle East . I am not American."
He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you an American?"
She says, "No, I am from Africa ."
Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"
The African lady checks her watch and says,"Probably at work."

I. INAUGURATION KICK-OFF PRAYER
The first prayer was mouthed by Vicky Gene Robinson, homosexual “bishop” of the appalling and apostate American Episcopalian denomination.
We get a clue of this man’s politically correct heart as he said these words, “Oh god of our many (mis)understandings . . . Bless this nation with anger at discrimination at home and abroad against refugees and immigrants, women, people of color, (homosexuals), lesbians, bi-sexual and transgendered (all matter of perverse behavior) remembering that every religion’s god judges us by the way we care for the most vulnerable . . . Amen.
Is this evil-doing cleric referring to the millions of babies murdered in their mother’s womb by the likes of taxpayer financed eugenic practicing Planned Parenthood? I doubt it.
II. THE INVOCATION
The second prayer was by far the most Biblical and God-honoring of the three prayers. It contained some allusions to caring for the earth, which is not at all on the heart of God to the degree that Rick Warren proclaims and practices.
However we at least get a sense of this man’s evangelical and Biblical roots in his prayer, “Almighty God, Our Father, everything we see and everything we can’t see, exists because of You alone. It all comes from You. It all belongs to You. It all exists for Your glory. History is Your story. . . I humbly ask this in the name of the One who changed my life . . . Jesus . . .”
III. THE BENEDICTORY PRAYER
The third prayer was provided by long-time civil rights activist the aged Joseph Lowery. Here is a man who valiantly struggled against injustice for many, many years. He preached a mostly social gospel. That is not the gospel of Jesus and salvation as I read it in the Bible. Lowery's intentions were admirable and good. However, if everyman gained full equality, or gained all the wealth of the world, but loses his soul, what has he accomplished?
His prayer was the pensive prayer of an old, tired man we get a glimpse of his heart in the words he said, “God of our weary years, silent tears . . . Amen.”
Of the three prayers pronounced over last few days, I believe only one might have honored God. That was the prayer of Warren. Though not perfect, in that you can hear some of Lowery’s social gospel and Robinson’s political correct “gospel” creeping into his prayer, of the three, nonetheless, it most conforms with Scripture. The beginning and end of the prayer were especially faithful to Scripture. God is neither the “god of many understandings” nor the “god of man’s creation or man's weakness.” God is indeed, as Warren prayed, Almighty, Father, Sustainer, and Creator. Robinson’s and Lowery’s god is small and man-made. Warren’s is the powerful, omnipresent, omniscient God of the Judeo-Christian Bible.
These three prayers are emblematic or representative of three major groups of people in our nation today – the true but imperfect believers in Jesus Christ (Warren), the politically correct atheists or unbelievers or scoffers (Robinson), and those who have a form of religion but deny its power (Lowery). In the end only Warren prayed in the name of Jesus, the other two prayed in their own impoverished, fallible names.
My assessment may appear judgmental and harsh, but it is time to speak the truth in love, even if that truth hurts or may offend.

Amidst all the hoot'n, hollering, Hollywood, hoopla and false hope in this messiah's coronation/inauguration, I for one am somber, sober, and fearful of what he and his socialists comrades-in-harm will do to this once great nation. Regrettably, the death watch for America begins today when the illegitimate usurper Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama assumes the Presidency of the United States of America.
SOETORO/OBAMA & PRESIDENTIAL QUALIFICATION
Soetoro/Obama has so far alluded any scrutiny by the Opposition Media (ABC, CBS, CNN, NY Times, etc) regarding his status as a natural born citizen of the U.S.A. There is enough doubt caused by contradictory statements made by relatives, even by a former would-be cabinet appointee, and by Soetoro/Obama’s own refusal (cover-up) to release any of his college records, etc. There is legitimate suspicion that Soetoro/Obama financed his way through college through aid he received as a foreign student. He traveled to Pakistan in the 1980s when that country was on America’s restricted list. Did he do that on a passport from a country other than the U.S.?
That fact that quite possibly Soetoro/Obama does not meet the basic qualification to be President is enough to be concerned about his presidency. One attorney, who is bringing legal action against Soetoro/Obama, accuses him of blatant disregard for the constitution. By doing so, he spits in the face of all Americans. Does he consider himself to be above the law?
DEATH WATCH AMERICA
As I stated earlier, I am not as hope-filled and giddy over the prospects, predictions and expectations of the messianic presidency of the elitist Marxist Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Obama, as may be his loyal subjects including the “Opposition Media." His ineptness, his inexperience and his overwhelming stuffing his cabinet and key positions in his administration with retread Clintonites and Chicago political thugs and associates, will lead America to her destruction.
Soetoro/Obama will be the last president of the America as we know it. He will preside over the deliberate deconstruction and demise of America. For as long as this blog has the freedom to express this truth we shall continue to do so. Here is how he will do it:
His actions of the first days, weeks, months and years in office will reveal that he has no clue as to what he is doing. He will unwittingly be the instrument used by God to bring needed and deserved judgment on our wayward God-rejecting nation.
Concerned Woman of America (CWA) came up with an (Soetoro)/Obama Watch list. I have expanded on it and have added to it. We will begin tracking the major steps toward destruction that President Soetoro/Obama leads us toward. Here are some of the major areas in which he may wrongly act:
1-Sign the Freedom of Choice Act
"The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do." -- Barack Obama speaking to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007.
Soetoro/Obama has been an avid support of the complete pro-death agenda. He even favors killing babies born alive, if that would endanger the “sacred” right of a woman to destroy her baby. He and his comrades in Congress may either try to pass FOCA or may try to effect it piecemeal with the same long-term outcome – overturning any and all obstacles to the wicked abortion practice.
2-Overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)
"For the record, I opposed DOMA in 1996. It should be repealed and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying." -- Barack Obama in a 2004 letter to a Chicago homosexual newspaper.
Apparently President Soetoro/Obama owes the homosexual community big time. They are some of most ardent supporters, financiers, and campaign workers. He lied on the campaign trail when he said he was for same-sex unions, but not for same-sex marriage. He’s for whatever the same-sex crowd wants.
3-Grant Special Rights for Homosexuals
"Since 1996, I have been the sponsor or a chief co-sponsor of measures to expand civil liberties for the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] community including hate-crimes legislation, adoption rights and the extension of basic civil rights to protect LGBT persons from discrimination in housing, public accommodations, employment and credit." -- Barack Obama in a 2004 letter to a Chicago homosexual newspaper.
Equal rights are not enough, homosexuals want special rights. They intend to silence all who oppose them. These special rights will help them achieve their goals.
4-Appoint Radical Judges
"[W]hat matters on the Supreme Court is those 5 percent of cases that... can only be determined on the basis of one's deepest values, one's core concerns, one's broader perspectives on how the world works, and the depth and breadth of one's empathy." -- Remarks of Barack Obama opposing the confirmation of Chief Justice John Roberts.
Not only on the Supreme Court but on all levels Soetoro/Obama will only appoint radical leftist activists judges, who will disrespect real individual freedom and continue to massacre the Constitution.
5-Allow Open Homosexuals in the Military
Interviewer: "If you were elected, what do you plan to do for the LGBT community -- what can you reasonably get done?"Obama: "I reasonably can see 'don’t ask, don’t tell' eliminated. I think that I can help usher through an Employment Non-Discrimination Act and sign it into law." -- Interview with The Advocate, April 10, 2008.
Soetoro/Obama will do what no enemy has done to date – weaken and eventually destroy the U.S. Military with a senseless, evil permission to allow open homosexual and lesbian and other perverse sexual behavior in the military. It will undermine the integrity of our fighting force.
6-Fund Deadly Embryonic Stem Cell Research
"Clearly, we are moving backwards in our efforts with these current restrictions. Stymieing embryonic stem cell research is a step in the wrong direction." -- Barack Obama press release, April 11, 2007.
Here is another pro-death plant in the new President’s agenda. Despite the fact that there has been nothing positive generated by ESCR, despite the fact that no private funding source will provide funding, Soetoro/Obama will turn over vast sums of money to destroy human live to supposedly, without any proof whatsoever, to “save” lives.
7-Sign the “Fairness” Doctrine
Through the FCC, executive order or legislation conservative talk radio will be targeted and their will be an attempt to silence the remaining opposition to supplanting our republican democratric form of government wand planting socialism in America.
Soetoro/Obama has had an almost unanimous and unwavering support of the Opposition Media (CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, PBS, CBS etc.) throughout the 2-year presidential campaign. The Opposition Media will continue to be used as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Junta to promote anti-American policies and agendas.
8- Sign any Amnesty for Illegal Aliens bill
Here may be a way to perpetuate Democratic Party power going forward. Give the illegal aliens amnesty and the Democratic Party will have a voter block in their hip pocket.
9- Continue Wild Deficit Spending, Big Government Expansion, and Dramatic Tax Increases
Bailouts will become the norm. Read-my-lips-no-new-taxes-for-the middle-class II. Soetoro/Obama will outspend Bush, making him look like he was a miser.
10- Weakening of Our National Defense
Soetoro/Obama will continue Bush’s do-nothing porous border policy. He will abandon/surrender Iraq. He will dissolve or do away with our close mutual relationship with Israel. He will ruthlessly defund the military to pay for massive and destructive social engineering projects.
Once the inauguration orgy is yesterday's news and stark reality sets in, we will attempt to track the demise of America at the hands of President Soetoro/Obama to the very end . . . until the end of his term or America's . . .
