Dear "Sisters & Brothers In Christ";
We are posting another look back at our nation's history in hopes it will re-kindle a peace of American Patriotism within our readers! These images are very close to my heart because so many of my friends, family and of course my community were proud members of the United States Army Air Force, and later the regular Air Force as it's called today. We sincerely hope you will enjoy these stories and pictures as a solemn reminders of what our nation was capable of when duty called!
Peace be with you, Amen
They need a special prosecutor now. The smoking gun has been found! And, Lerner needs jailed for contempt of Congress. Time to stop playing games.
The IRS’s inspector general confirmed Thursday it is conducting a criminal investigation into how Lois G. Lerner’s emails disappeared, saying it took only two weeks for investigators to find hundreds of tapes the agency’s chief had told Congress were irretrievably destroyed.
Investigators have already scoured 744 backup tapes and gleaned 32,774 unique emails, but just two weeks ago they found an additional 424 tapes that could contain even more Lerner emails, Deputy Inspector General Timothy P. Camus told the House Oversight Committee in a rare late-night hearing meant to look into the status of the investigation.
“There is potential criminal activity,” Mr. Camus said.

He said they have also discovered the hard drives from the IRS’s email servers, but said because the drives are out of synch it’s not clear whether they will be able to recover anything from them.
“To date we have found 32,744 unique emails that were backed up from Lois Lerner’s email box. We are in the process of comparing these emails to what the IRS has already produced to Congress to determine if we did in fact recover any new emails,” Mr. Camus said.
Democrats questioned the independence of Inspector General J. Russell George, who is overseeing the investigation, saying he’s injected politics into his work.

Rep. Gerald Connolly, Virginia Democrat, said Mr. George is refusing to turn documents over to him, prompting a heated reply.
“You’re not entitled to certain documents,” Mr. George said.
“Oh really? We’ll see about that, won’t we,” Mr. Connolly replied, saying that he questioned whether Mr. George could be trusted if he’s refusing to provide documents, yet is in charge of an investigation into whether the IRS stonewalled document requests.
The hearing was the latest chapter in the complex investigation into the IRS’s targeting of tea party groups for special scrutiny.
Several congressional committees are still probing the matter, and both the inspector general and the Justice Department are conducting criminal investigations.
In a 2013 report, the inspector general said the IRS had improperly targeted conservative and tea party groups’ applications for nonprofit status, asking repeated intrusive questions and delaying their applications well beyond a reasonable time. Some of those groups are still waiting, with their applications now pending for years.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican and Oversight Committee chairman, said the ongoing investigations undercut President Obama’s assertion last year that there was no evidence of corruption in the IRS’s targeting.
“I have no idea how the president came to such a definitive conclusion without all the facts,” he said.
The IRS belatedly told Congress it may have lost some of Ms. Lerner’s emails after her computer crashed, and asserted that the backup tapes didn’t exist.
But under questioning from Mr. Chaffetz, Mr. Camus said it took him only two weeks to track down the backup tapes, and when he asked the IRS depository for them, the workers there said they’d never been contacted by the agency itself.
Republicans said that was stunning because IRS Commissioner John Koskinen repeatedly assured Congress the emails were irretrievably lost.
“I think they have misled or lied to the committee,” said Rep. John L. Mica, Florida Republican.
Mr. Camus said they were clued in to the 424 new tapes they just found a couple of weeks ago after realizing the IRS hadn’t given over a key document. They demanded that document, and realized it showed hundreds of other tapes existed.
Democrats said the investigation has dragged on too long and been too expensive, pointing to the IRS’s estimate that it has spent $20 million on staff and equipment to try to comply with the committee’s request.
Ms. Lerner, who oversaw the unit of the IRS that scrutinized nonprofit groups’ applications, is a central figure in the investigations.
After belatedly discovering that some of her emails weren’t being recovered, the IRS did try to reconstitute them by asking other employees to dig through their emails to see if they were the recipients of any messages that involved her. That did produce some of the missing emails.
Democrats said the GOP seemed to be insinuating Ms. Lerner had purposely crashed her hard drive to hide emails — though she herself pushed to try to get messages recovered.
Democrats also questioned why the hearing was happening now, given that Mr. Camus and Mr. George both stressed that their findings are preliminary and could change as they learn more.
“It seems that the best course of action would be to have the inspector general come back when his report is complete,” said Rep. Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the panel.
Next week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to address a joint session of Congress to warn lawmakers of the impending danger to Israel and the United States if the Obama administration moves forward in allowing Iran to obtain nuclear weapons.
It appears that President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State, John Kerry, have actually joined with those who seek the "destruction of the Jewish state." There is no other option for American Christians than to stand in opposition to the destructive actions and policies of the Obama White House.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to our lawmakers next week will be a clear warning to all of us about striking a deal with Iran, a nation whose ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel and the United States. The rogue nation will do anything or say anything to achieve that goal. The Israeli Prime Minister told an Israel radio station ...
"I am writing the speech and it is important, because I am going there to try to stop the deal from happening. We remember the times when Persia tried to destroy us, and today in the same Persia there is a ruler who calls for the destruction of the Jewish state and they plan on doing it with nuclear weapons."
The Obama administration wants to negotiate with our enemy.
Today, the Associated Press reported that Iran conducted military drills to send a message to the United States...
"Iran's Revolutionary Guard on Friday announced it had test fired a 'new strategic weapon' in the final day of a large-scale naval and air defense drill, saying the system would play a key role in any future battle against the 'Great Satan.'"
We are the "Great Satan" to the Iranian Muslims.
Earlier this week, Iran's Navy conducted mock attacks on a U.S. aircraft carrier. At the same time, Iranian protestors hung President Obama in effigy.
America is playing with fire.
I believe God is sending a warning to America to stop siding with Israel's enemies.
President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are actively campaigning against the interests of the nation of Israel – our greatest ally and the only democracy in the Middle East. Prime Minister Netanyahu has become a political target to the Obama administration for speaking the truth!
As I'm sure you know, Team Obama is working inside the nation of Israel to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to help elect a left-wing government that will usher in a wave of social and political liberalism. Because of the anti-Israeli stance of President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry, it is critical that you and I step up to defend Israel from the attacks coming not only from her sworn enemies, but from her so-called "friends" as well.
Barack Obama obviously does not understand the potential fallout from his administration's dangerous actions. The Bible says that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – Israel's omnipotent defender – takes very seriously all attempts to harm His people, the Jews.
In the book of Joel, we read that God will ultimately judge the nations that try to divide the land of Israel – something the Obama White House has consistently proposed. And Zechariah 12:9 plainly says, “I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem."
Recently, Jewish rabbis, representing the Committee to Save the Land and People of Israel, rightly called the Obama administration's actions "a declaration of war against the Creator and Ruler of the universe." But, as the rabbis point out, it's not Israel that will ultimately pay the price; it's the enemies of God.
America has been blessed by God because our national policy has been favorable toward the nation of Israel since its founding in 1948. If we allow the Obama administration to subvert this policy, a price will be paid!
I don't want this nation, which was founded as one nation under God, to become the enemy of God's people.
The Scriptures tell us to “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem." There has never been a time when we needed to do this more! The Holy City is under threat from hostile neighbors next door and others like Iran, with its potential for nuclear missiles, just a thousand miles away.
At a time when our President and Secretary of State should be doing all they can to support Israel, Barack Obama and John Kerry are aiding Israel's and America's enemies instead!
Senator Cruz stated, "This administration's relentless harassment of Israel is utterly incomprehensible... This administration should be focusing its animosity on the very real enemies we face, not on our staunch allies."
