Greetings and welcome "Sisters & Brothers"!
Once again "We The People" find ourselves witnesses to America's President and his administration intentionally poking their "Political Fingers" into our friend and ally the state of Israel's eye! Other than the obvious continuation of another "Presidential Temper Tantrum" over Prime Minister Netanyahu’s landslide re-election there appears little other reason for this distasteful public display of contempt, BUT as President Obama is fond of reminding his adversaries and I quote "Elections have consequences"! "To what end" many have asked concerning this public "road show" of arrogance by President Obama but what we do know is there seems to be NO good end in sight and the fact that the American and Israeli public are both concerned and tired of it from all reports!
Whatever the outcome of President Obama's open and continued disrespect and complete disregard for Israel's Prime Minister, this war-weary planet is in far worse shape when two allies such as these are at odds with each other on ANY level, publically OR in private. Many people on both sides of this issue, including myself, have reached a level of uncomfortable distrust and moral disillusion with this president and his administration for many reasons far too involved to list here, but with firm conviction nonetheless.
Let us, as American citizens, never cease to offer our sincere prayers and continued best wishes to our "Sisters & Brothers" in the state of Israel now and in the days ahead. Common sense and decency dictates WE do this despite President Obama and his administrations public display of poor judgments, lack of character and personal integrity in the face of mutual interests to both sides that would, in different times, take center stage in world affairs!
This entire planet is on the cutting edge of either making great strides towards a cautious peace and mutual prosperity OR an immoral continuation of arrogant disregard for human rights for anyone outside of "Elite Societies" being built as we speak! Clearly my dear "Sisters & Brothers", "We The People" can no longer remain silent in the face of this "Clear & Present Danger" growing before our eyes for "IF" this be our choice we only need to re-visit the results of this same attitude of the early 1930's in Europe and Germany to see where we are headed. Pray our collective voices are heard in he capitals of this world while time is still our trusted companion and friend! "Laus Deo & Shalom"
Peace be with you, Amen
WHATSHISNAME & SCARY KERRY ARE MAKING A BIG MISTAKE! IRAN HAS ALWAYS SUPPORTED "TERROR" & "DEATH TO AMERICA," AND ALWAYS WILL! THEY LIE, AS THE KORAN TELLS THEM TO DO TO JUSTIFY THEIR MOTIVES. NETANYAHU GAVE US OUR FINAL WARNING, AND OUR GOVERNMENT IS "SNUBBNG" OUR ALLY IN FAVOR OF LYING TERRORISTS!! MJB
When the chant “Death to America” goes out in Tehran, it should remind us of the nature of Barack Obama’s diplomatic partners in Iran. The radical Shiite Islamists who seized power in 1979 also seized the US embassy in Tehran and kept dozens of diplomatic personnel as hostages for 444 long days.
The chant became a regular feature of the nightly news, as the intense media coverage often included footage of the constant protests of the “students” while a feckless administration could do nothing to end the humiliation.
Unfortunately, subsequent administrations didn’t learn much from the folly of engagement with the radical mullahs that run Iran with an iron fist. Ronald Reagan tried to swap arms with Iran to end a string of kidnappings of Americans by Hezbollah, Tehran’s terrorist proxies that eventually took control of Lebanon and became Bashar al-Assad’s enforcers in Syria.
Every administration since has attempted to get the Iranians to end their support for terror, and the last two have tried to get Tehran to end its nuclear-weapons program since the discovery of their clandestine effort more than a decade ago. Despite the concessions made repeatedly to woo the mullahs into more responsible behavior, the response has always been a thinly veiled version of “Death to America.”
This week, Iran’s Supreme Leader didn’t even bother with the veil. A crowd attending a speech by Ali Khamenei in Tehran began the “Death to America” chant as the ruling mullah assented. “Of course yes, death to America,” Khamenei replied, “because America is the original source of this pressure” to end Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
This is, of course, the head of state in the high-stakes negotiations that President Obama has tried so hard to keep going. Furthermore, in the Iranian theocracy, it’s the ayatollah serving as Supreme Leader who counts for everything in a political sense. Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have hitched the security of the US and the very existence of our allies in the Middle East – especially Israel – on the basis that we can trust Iran to stick to a deal and not produce nuclear weapons, even though it would give them a significant advantage in the region. And the only man whose opinions count publicly cheers, “Death to America.”
The response to Khamenei’s statement by the White House may have been even more unnerving. According to CNN and National Journal’s Josh Kraushaar, the Obama administration didn’t take it seriously. They said it was “intended for a domestic political audience.” The administration dismissed the idea that was significant in terms of the deal Obama and Kerry have pursued, and for which the US and its allies have spent months negotiating. It’s just the Ayatollah being the Ayatollah, in other words.
Funny, but the White House took a distinctly less charitable approach to the ally that opposed Iran the previous week. Benjamin Netanyahu, in fighting for re-election in Israel, told voters there that he could no longer support a two-state solution under the current conditions of Palestinian leadership. He also warned Israelis that outside activists had attempted to boost voting of Israeli Arabs in an attempt to defeat Likud, and urged Israel’s Jews to turn out more heavily for him. In the final days of the election, Netanyahu won handily.
Did the Obama administration shrug Netanyahu’s words off as “intended for a domestic political audience?”
Of course not.
Ever since, the White House has been in high dudgeon, slamming Netanyahu’s campaign for both the comments about Arab turnout and the futility of negotiating with a Hamas-partnered Mahmoud Abbas. Netanyahu has tried making amends for both statements, but as late as Tuesday, State Department spokesperson Marie Harf sniffed that the US didn’t find Netanyahu credible any longer. “Given his statements prior to the election, it’s going to be hard to find a path where people seriously believe, when it comes to negotiations, that those are possible.”
Let’s get this straight. Benjamin Netanyahu, the elected head of government of a US ally, defies Obama on a policy that impacts Israel’s security, then apologizes for it, and yet is considered someone who lacks credibility. However, when the head of state of a nation that has sponsored terrorism for decades openly says, “Death to America,” the Obama administration shrugs off the statement as mere domestic politics and considers him a credible partner for peace.
We are truly through the looking glass with this President.
It has become abundantly clear that Obama wants a deal for the sake of claiming a foreign policy achievement, no matter what the cost, and no matter what it does to our allies, especially Israel. The situation is reminiscent of another confrontation between Western powers and an extremist dictatorship that professed its own destiny to rule the world, and where the dictator even wrote out his plans for world domination and practically begged everyone to read them.
In both cases, Western leaders told themselves that the extremist rhetoric was only intended for domestic consumption. Also in both cases, they treated with contempt their allies whose very existence was threatened by the new hegemon, who kept breaking international agreements and stalling negotiations until the West appeased them by betraying those same allies -- even locking their democratic allies out of the negotiations.
At least Neville Chamberlain learned his lesson after Munich, albeit far too late for the Czechoslovakians, Eastern Europe, and millions of Jews. Obama and Kerry seem determined to repeat those same mistakes. That can be described many ways, but smart power isn’t one of them
Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting congressional delegate for the District of Columbia, angrily sputtered during a congressional hearing Friday that the White House should not be held up to scrutiny, saying that there was no right to know what it was doing behind closed doors.
"You don't have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government," Norton said during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.
It was, to put mildly, a significant departure from the more traditional liberal stance that openness and transparency are must to prevent abuses of power by government officials. Instead the leading advocate for statehood for the District of Columbia literally argued that even the congressional committee charged with oversight shouldn't be asking questions in the first place.

COLUMN 6: EFFECTS OF POSSESSION ON THE BELIEVER
The effect of evil spirit possession, as listed in Column 6, has
already been more or less indicated in the preceding columns,
and it is only necessary to compare Column 4 and 6 for their
further summing up.
The subtilty of the deception has been that in multitudes of
cases, all these "symptoms" are thought to be physically or
morally the outcome of the individual personality, i.e., the
"temperament" of the person, which must be borne with until
released from the body of clay in the grave! "Self," they declare,
is their trouble, which no acceptance of the Fulness of the Spirit,
nor light upon identification with Christ, has altered. Wandering
of mind in prayer, restlessness, talkativeness, or extreme reserve;
and many other hindering troubles in the outer man remain, and
are tolerated, or grieved over, without hope of change.
But how different the outlook, when much that troubles them is
attributed to the true cause. "An enemy hath done this!" In many
it is not "self" after all, but ground unwittingly given to deceiving
spirits, who could be dislodged by the knowledge of the truth, and
by refusal of ground.

"FreedomWorks is honored to be a part of this unique transpartisan Coalition. For decades, politicians have appeared to be 'tough on crime' by passing onerous laws that trap people in a horribly broken criminal justice system. These bad policies have led to the United States having the highest incarceration rate in the world. This is not only fiscally unsustainable, it's morally wrong. We look forward to promoting meaningful and responsible criminal justice reforms that will bring families back together, restore our civil liberties, and reduce the number of nonviolent offenders in our prison system." — Matt Kibbe, President and CEO of FreedomWorks

OBAMA'S UNMITIGATED GALL !!
Has it been five years already? With, ahem, absolutely nothing else of consequence clogging up his schedule, President Barack Obama took center stage at a Wednesday party celebrating Obamacare’s fifth anniversary. The White House put together a ceremony only slightly less choreographed than his Rose Garden victory dance with the parents of alleged deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
I watched Obama brazenly congratulate himself for perpetrating a fraud on the American people like some gangsta-rapper wannabe braying about knocking over a 7-11. “This law is saving money for families and for businesses… This law is also saving lives. It’s working, despite countless attempts to repeal, undermine, defund and defame this law. It’s not the fiscal disaster critics warned about for five years.”
As has become customary for this administration, Obama’s minions even produced one of their nifty little hashtags, “#ObamacareIsWorking,” to commemorate the event because self-congratulations in 140 characters or less are much easier that way. I must admit, at first I found his unmitigated gall almost impressive. Claiming a disaster like Obamacare as a signature domestic-policy achievement would certainly require nothing less than spectacular hubris, if not outright sociopathy. But then, something occurred to me. Obamacare is Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement.
Obama has certainly stumbled through his tenure so far. His watch has sent a record number of Americans into permanent unemployment and sentenced unprecedented masses to life on the welfare rolls. He’s engaged in a pattern of abuses of Americans’ civil liberties that would make the KGB blush. His accomplices, including such worthies as Lois Lerner, John Koskinen, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder, have clearly committed breaches that normally end up in front of juries, while fouling the public discourse with the sneering mendacity that made MSNBC every bit the “success” Obamacare has been.
While liberals continue to crow about Obamacare and its rather dubious “successes” like the oft-repeated claim that “(insert grossly overinflated number here) people who didn’t have insurance now have it” or something to that effect, they’re very carefully not discussing the side effects, which in many cases are far worse than any of the myriad diseases Obamacare won’t — and can’t — cure. Someone ought to remind Obama that it’s not really an accomplishment if you forced the subjects to buy something you didn’t really plan on offering and that they didn’t want in any case. It’s even less so if you forced them at gunpoint. And let’s not beat around the bush, kids. Anytime the federal government makes you do something, it’s at gunpoint. A group of Americans who had no choice in the matter are currently learning that lesson the hard way as they discover their Obamacare subsidies are headed back to D.C. via the Internal Revenue Service.
Someone should also remind Obama’s devoted followers that Obamacare and actual healthcare are not — nor were they ever supposed to be — the same thing. If you had cancer before Obamacare, you still have cancer. The only difference is that you might need to see a different oncologist — in the event that your previous doctor was on the surprisingly long list of those whom you couldn’t keep, even if you did like them. However, if you were a fit, healthy, nonsmoking triathlete whose plan was suitable for your needs, you’re now not only paying more for the same thing, thanks to Obamacare, you’re paying more for less, since you still don’t need the extra coverage and the doctors whom you did like left their practice thanks to Obamacare.
Of course, even when Obama makes a mountain out of a fraud-riddled molehill, he can’t do it without making a fool of himself in the process. During his remarks, Obama jabbed at conservative opposition to his criminal enterprise, presumably joking when he asked: “Kicking millions off insurance will somehow make us more free?” Evidently, the president forgot the millions who were kicked off their insurance by Obamacare, despite his promises to the contrary. The Democrats are fond of discussing Obama’s “presidential” demeanor. And nothing says “presidential” to me like sophomoric jabs from a lame-duck has-been whose paper-thin ego is more important to him than his own party’s future.
Notably, among the hordes of attendees — and by “hordes” I mean “number lower than Joe Biden’s IQ score” — were three whole Democratic legislators. Despite their professed admiration for the lumbering legislative behemoth, the bulk of our port side legislators skipped the big day to attend a speech to a joint session of Congress by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani. It’s not that they didn’t want to be there for the big anniversary photo op; it’s just that they were dying to hear from a guy whose name Obama apparently can’t remember on a bet. Say what you want about most Democrats, but they’re smart enough to shore up their alibis.
Unfortunately for them, those alibis are thinner than Obama’s delicate self-image. Last fall, Obamacare extracted a heavy toll from the legislative side of the Democratic machine. With their party trapped in a death spiral heading into 2016 — their top contender remains the laughably unelectable Hillary Clinton — the last thing they need is Obama nailing a copy of Obamacare to the electorate’s door. And yet that’s precisely what he’s doing. Happy anniversary, Obamacare; you’re the gift that keeps on giving.
I think that Netanyahu gave us a warning or prophetic message, such as Malachi, which means "the messenger," did in the last book of the Old Testament. Malachi was an Israelite prophet whom is little known, but his prophecies should be heeded today as in the second half of the fifth century B.C. The Jews relationship with God at that time was not good ... they failed to honor and give God what they should have, and many even left God completely. This was Malachi's chief concern ...

The Jews relationship with God at that time was not good ... they failed to honor and give God what they should have, and many even left God completely. This was Malachi's chief concern ... that they were failing to do what God required of them, and that there would be judgment. God loved Israel, and Israel was insulting God. Malachi wanted all to be God-fearing and in God's "book" so they would have God's salvation forever.
Malachi, or “the messenger,” is the name given to the last book in the Old Testament. God’s people had suffered through generations of captivity and bondage and had been given promises of a better day just around the corner. But, that day hadn’t come just yet. While they hoped for blessings they found poverty, famine, drought, sickness and moral decay, instead; skepticism, pride and rebellion were gaining ground and–in feeling forgotten by the Lord–they themselves were the ones who had forgotten God.
So Malachi wrote. He wrote to encourage the discouraged. He wrote to rekindle the flames of God’s favor that they had extinguished by their disobedience. He wrote to strongly call them back to remembrance of the Lord’s work in their history and of their responsibility to follow Him with unhindered hearts and whole offerings. Only in remembering his faithfulness and obeying His rule would they experience his favor.
Malachi 3:16 reads:
Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored his name.
The Malachi Message is a place where people who fear the Lord can talk together while He listens in! And maybe our stories of seeing Him illuminated in rush-hour traffic, in chance encounters with strangers on subways, in grocery store check-out lines and hospital waiting rooms will become our own scrolls of remembrance that honor His name and encourage us to never forget the infinite demonstrations of His great faithfulness.
Welcome "Sisters & Brothers"!
I must admit it is truly a sad day when we are contacted and directed to sites such as this one we have decided to re-post for your attention. In full disclosure "Sisters & Brothers" I have not researched this information yet BUT it comes from a trusted source with excellent credentials and sources as well, but I will research as best I can.
From what I have found so far is this is NOT some isolated issue, indeed it is fairly consistent with this organization from what is posted publically. It's amazing how much of our taxpayer funds are being distributed throughout this nation in much the same fashion to the church organization listed here as well as other denominations yet to be listed by 1 Voice Ministries to date. I'm quiet sure this will change with time and public interest. One of the things we've found interesting is when "We The People" are told by our president and his administration how Social Security, Medicare and of course Medicaid are dangerously close to going flat broke, and even our precious military is forced to cut back their bare essentials, we find organizations such as these we are reporting on today operating freely on OUR DIME, in fact and in form! Curious no? Pray hold that thought!
Please read and offer our thoughts and comments as time allows BUT know that it is YOUR tax money being spread upon the water by our current government to the places of worship most of us were completely unaware of. Speaking as plainly as I can, I sincerely believe I smell the "stench" of corruption in the spring air and dear "Sisters & Brothers In Christ" I ain't liking it one little bit!

As we "cut to the chase" today, we feel you will find this author has decided to pen what a growing number of todays society dare not speak of even in private. I personally find this mind-set to be extremely strange given the overwhelming facts that tell us little of this is any great secret in the 21st century
. Regardless of how some of us feel concerning this "Sexual Revolution" such as it is and has been, the direct and indeed the in-direct results from this "Social Activity" is literally killing this nation in and of itself. Even the mere mention of "Morality" flies in the face of todays standards OR lack of in most social circles and is a far cry from those most of us grew-up under I would imagine.
After reading and re-reading "Brother" Baskerville's thoughts I find I cannot find any fault in his findings. One thing is crystal clear after you finish reading his article is he does NOT attempt to shy away from "Tempting the social tigers" in any manner I have found and I commend him on his stand on morality, such as it is in todays world. We believe you will learn much before this is finished. Please enjoy and offer your thoughts as your time allows!
Your support keeps freedom alive!
