But as for me and my house ...
A United Nations resolution to recognize a Palestinian nation and upgrading the Palestinians' status in the UN general assembly passed yesterday by a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions. There are 193 'world body' member states in the UN.
Only nine member countries voted "no" Thursday: Israel, the United States, Canada, the Czech Republic, Panama the Pacific island nations of Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has now been given authority to establish a Palestinian state. Abbas wants the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, the territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war, returned to Palestinian control.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to the UN vote. (See video below)
This turn of events will only embolden the Islamic nations that seek Israel's demise. However, we must remember that God has brought his people back to the promised land for the third (and, I believe, final) time. Israel is the only people in human history that lived without a country to call home (the Diaspora) for almost 2,000 years; enduring repeated attempts by different nations to eradicate them, yet remained a people.
All of this is in accordance with a the prophecies contained in the Tanahk ('Old Testament') wherein God said he would disperse his people among the nations for their sins against him (Leviticus 26:33, Deuteronomy 28: 64-66, Ezekiel 4:3, 22:15, Jeremiah 30:11, 46:28) , Isra'el would be despised by everyone (Jeremiah 29:18, 44:8), and yet, he would bring them back to the beautiful land where they would never be uprooted again (Isaiah 5:26, 49:22, Ezekiel 20:14, 36:24, Amos 9:14-15). These are but a few verses on these subjects.
What occurs between the time Israel returns to the promised land and when God cleanses the people of their 'blood guilt' (Ezekiel 36:24-26, 33), is called the 'time of Jacob' trouble.' That is where we are today.
Part of the end of days prophecies concerns God's judgment of the nations for the atrocities they have committed against Israel, including dividing God's city (Jerusalem). The nations have stated their intent. Not only Muslim nations, but the nations of the world.
Thus, the line has been drawn in the sand. How long before God acts on his promise?
For then, at that time, when I restore
the fortunes of Y’hudah and Yerushalayim,
I will gather all nations and bring them down
to the Valley of Y’hoshafat [Adonai judges].
I will enter into judgment there
for my people, my heritage Isra’el,
whom they scattered among the nations;
then they divided my land. (Joel 4:1-3)
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
The founding fathers of our fledgling nation put it succinctly in this 'preamble to the Declaration of Independence'. The rights named therein which a government can guarantee are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
In the United States, this has become:
When we were married, it was a shock to both my husband and myself that our new 'home' lacked the comfort and homeyness we were accustomed to in our parents' homes. My husband joked that maybe we thought we were entitled to what they had worked 20 or more years to build together. Such is the state of America today. While my husband and I accepted the fact that we would have to work to attain a better 'standard of living', spoiled Americans don't accept this fact and demand it be given to them in the spirit of 'equality.'
Entitlement is nowhere in the founding documents of this nation.
The United States of America was not founded on equality, either. It was founded on the principle that if you are born poor, you are not condemned to remain in that social position or class for life - if you want to work hard. We laud those who have risen from poverty to success, but Progressives want everyone to be made financially equal. What is the incentive to work hard if you are forced to give it away? None! We have history (recent history) as our guide.
Since our educational system no longer teaches about the class system of European history our youth does not realize that they were fortunate to be born in a wonderful nation! The class system still exists in many regions of the world, such as India, the far east and Pacific island nations such as Indonesia,
I suppose they will have to experience Socialism in order to figure this out. (I am heartbroken for those who will bear this burden without having desired it.)
Enter the new Socialism which is called 'Progressive'. The United States is a few years behind Great Britain in its Progressivism. Great Britain had national healthcare and is now trying to undo the debacle. Its citizens came to the United States for the healthcare they couldn't access at home.
Great Britain has recently experienced an exodus. More than 16,000 Great Britons declared an annual income of more than £1 million in the 2009-10 tax year, the height of the recession and financial crisis. After Chancellor Gordon Brown introduced a top tax rate of 50% shortly before the last general election, this number fell to 6,000. This is a 38% drop in the number of people and families who give the greatest amount to the national budget. Rich Britons either left the country or reduced their taxable income to avoid paying the higher tax rates. (The 'rich' always find the loophole.)
Fact: Increasing the tax rates of those who can afford to leave the 'party' leads to a loss in revenues for the government.
Those who can live off what they have without earning more have no incentive to continue doing so.
Once Chancellor Osborne announced earlier this year that the reduction of the top tax rate by a mere 5%, those declaring annual incomes greater than 1 million pounds has risen to 10,000. Great Britain has still lost 6,000 million-pound earners.
Now, the United States:
Over the last four years, Obama stated he wanted to raise taxes on the top one percent of taxpayers. Now, this figure has been revised to the top two marginal income tax rates. This doesn't just affect millionaires. It affects the middle-income people like my husband and myself. We are not, nor have we ever been millionaires - or even close to it. We don't live extravagantly - we haven't had a vacation since my family reunion years ago. (And, my parents paid for that. Thank you!)
According to the IRS, a clear majority of small business employers will see their total tax burden increase from 38% to 43% in 2013. That extra 5% might not sound like much, but look what happened in Great Britain!
Therefore, Obama is imposing taxes on those whom he said he would not! Obama is anti-small business and against middle-income tax-payers.
President Obama and congressional Democrats claim they are raising taxes on “millionaires and billionaires” but the facts prove this is a LIE.
An Ernst and Young study projects that these tax rate hikes will eliminate 710,000 existing small business jobs. This isn't potential new jobs. There will be even more Americans on unemployment.
The day after Obama was re-elected, the medical industry as a whole announced significant cuts in jobs due to the burdens of Obamacare and other tax increases imposed during this administration due to take effect in 2013.
Medical devices include any non-pharmaceutical instrument, implant, in vitro reagent, etc., used to diagnose, prevent, or treat disease or other conditions, such as prosthetics, operating tables, pacemakers, and needles. Companies making medical devices employ approximately 409,000 Americans in 12,000 plants in the U.S. Eighty percent employ fewer than 50 people (Medical Device Manufacturers Association). In 2013 these companies, regardless of size, will pay taxes on gross sales, even if the respective company doesn’t earn a profit in a given year. Many companies incur a loss for several years as they develop new of life-improving devices.
What effect will this tax increase have on research and development? Those who need it most, lose!
The Congressional Budget Office reported that the U.S. economy would slide into a 'significant recession' as a result of the tax increases and spending cuts. (CBS News)
This $20 billion tax increase has already resulted in cuts to existing jobs and research and development budgets. Massachusetts Senator, Elizabeth Warren, Democrat: “When Congress taxes the sale of a specific product through an excise tax, as the Affordable Care Act does with medical devices, it too often disproportionately impacts the small companies with the narrowest financial margins and the broadest innovative potential. It also pushes companies of all sizes to cut back on research and development for life-saving product.”
Also taking effect in 2013 is the ObamaCare Investment Surtax that captures those who are presently exempt from self-employment tax: Subchapter-S corporations and limited partnerships. ObamaCare imposes a 3.8 percentage point tax as an “investor surtax.”
Beginning in 2014, small businesses also face the ObamaCare employer mandate tax penalty . This tax provision will force small businesses with more than 50 employees to purchase “qualifying” health insurance, or else face another tax penalty of up to $2,000 per employee.
Even with all these destructive taxes, the additional $82 billion won't touch our debt - or the interest thereon.
How many individual 'millionaires', companies and jobs are going to leave the United States as has occurred in Great Britain?
One more observation: Why would Hollywood actors (an example group) be behind Obama and this tax increase? Do they know something we don't?
Do you want to see your new tax rate? See below. (This doesn't include sales, real estate, and personal property taxes.) THIS IS FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS!
FYI: The U.S. was not debt-free under Bill Clinton. Click here for proof.
And, for the first time in our nation's history, in 2012 our debt became more than 100% of gross domestic product.
You are NOT free! You will work your entire life as a slave because the U.S. government mis-used its power, authority, and our money! This is what our forefathers fought a
An article at NaturalNews.com was sent to me by a friend yesterday. HealthRanger uses facts to support his thesis that Electronic Benefit Transfer cards (EBTs) used by welfare recipients (and, I've heard soon to be used for Medicare recipients, as well) have issues which can be utilized by the government against its citizens:
If you have read my article on the Federal Reserve, you already know that J.P. Morgan/Chase, manager of the Federal EBT system, was involved in creating our financial debacle in the first place.
Read the entire NaturalNews article and learn how this portion of the Illuminati plan (through its minions) to enslave mankind is being put into place.
As we enter into the first phase of Obamacare in 2013, even greater numbers of citizen/subjects will be placed on an EBT-type card system. If you use too much of the healthcare system, will you be cut off?
Once the herd of cattle is brought under total dependence, the Illuminati will 'cull the herd' of those who don't meet their criteria for the new world order they've planned. (see Illumicorp) That's where FEMA camps will be utilized to help those who are 'in need' - and then kill them. Biocaskets are already stockpiled. That's why I've been calling y'all cattle! Wake up!
The prophesied age of mankind being given over to its depraved mind is upon us. People actually believe what is being espoused via media. They believe it is okay for their children to be taught in school and on television that homosexuality is a lifestyle choice - and a good one. They believe if you work hard and gain any level of success, you are selfish and evil. They believe the 'government' - which is really you, the taxpayer - should be their lifelong parent. They believe any lie they are told, even when facts are before their eyes and ears - because the government says it. They believe if you cry out about any of these things, you are a horrible person. Today, bad is good; wrong is right. This deception is growing.
We will have to wait and see if the cattle remain deceived. Lining up, yet? Taking your children with you?
I am part of a 'herd', as well; but, my Shepherd is the Almighty God! He welcomes all willing to put their trust in Him. God doesn't refuse any because of infirmity or where they come from as mankind has always done. His name is not Allah, the moon god of ancient pagans. God is not like 'us' so we can't ascend to be little gods, as Oprah believes. His ways are not our ways (thankfully). His thoughts are not like ours (thankfully). Those who say the Bible is just a book have never read it, so don't listen to them. God doesn't shy from a 'challenge', so ask to know the truth. I dare you. Ask God to know the truth about Him. He is faithful and, if you truly want to know, He will give you the desire of your heart!
Don't put your trust in man - you will always be disappointed.
I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.
Or maybe I can put it another way: Where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.
In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.
In light of recent events… terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone
said you better not read the Bible in school… The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said, 'Okay'.
Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when
they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about.. And we said, 'Okay'.
Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can
figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why
the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is
suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?
Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
Pass it on if you think it has merit.
If not, then just discard it… no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about
what bad shape the world is in.
My Best Regards, Honestly and Respectfully,
While running for the Presidency in 2008, Barack Hussein Obama promised “a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military, to advance his “objectives” for America.
If the United States of America has a military that sets the standard for the rest of the world, why would a second army be necessary? Two possible reasons come to mind:
The announcement of the CNSF, reminiscent of Hitler era Germany, was ignored by the established media. Of course, the established media is but a pawn for the Illuminati front organizations. There was not a single question posed and the CNSF was never again mentioned, presumably because of the financial crisis.
Despite the fact that our present, standing military is going to sustain measurable cuts, the funding of the CNSF has proceeded behind the scenes, without major media report. From which part of the budget has the money been taken? Is this why the Administration has never presented a budget to Congress?
Yes, the brownshirts are back. In 1921, Adolf Hitler created his personal militia the Storm Section, commonly called the brownshirts. Is there any correlation between the actions of this Administration that bring the U.S.A. every-closer to Socialism and Hitler's socialist program both involving 'brownshirts'?
[You can read more stunning similarities here.]
The worst part of Obamacare is that it contains provisions that have nothing to do with healthcare - which is why Nancy Pelosi wanted to have the Bill passed without Congress reading it in its entirety first!
One item is the Obama 'brownshirts'. These 'commissioned Regular Corps and Ready Reserve Corps are ascribed duties as a branch of the 'Service' (Section 5210, H.R. 3590-496, page 496, 'ESTABLISHING A READY RESERVE CORPS") for deployment in time of 'national emergency'. They will serve in the same capacity as Military Reservists, but they will assist the RC in performing both routine public health and emergency response missions; and, will serve 'without regard to the civil-service laws' and 'compensated without regard to the Classification Act of 1923, as amended'.
The officers of the RRC can be called to active duty by the Surgeon General. I didn't know the Surgeon General was a part of the military!
Civil service laws govern civil servants, or public employees hired to provide services to the public by federal, state, county, and municipal governments.
The commissioned officers of the RC are appointed by the President and those of the RRC are appointed by the President with advice and consent of the Senate. The methods by which civil servants are selected and regulations governing the civil service are thereby violated by Obamacare in Section 5210 in that the President appoints his 'brownshirt' brigade.
The U.S.A. has a standing Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, National Guard, Reservists, State Troopers, State and Local Police forces, FEMA, First Responders, EMTs, Firefighters, et al. So, where is the need for another arm of the military? Even if this were necessary, why would this team be hand-picked by the President and report directly to him rather than the appropriate Military officials, Pentagon, or even Congress?
Any - and I repeat - ANY part of the U.S. government that usurps power and is not restrained by the other branches of the government (by their inaction), as has been the case with this administration (Executive Branch), without action by the Congress (Legislative Branch) or the Supreme Court (Judicial Branch), places the citizens' constitutional rights and freedoms in danger of being unilaterally sabotaged.
See also Your Constitutional Rights Have Been Revoked
The United States is presently under martial law without cause.
In March, 2012, Executive Order #13617, titled, National Defense Resources Preparedness (NDRP), abolishes yet another protection of the Constitution via the Bill of Rights and places the administration above U.S. law. It was written and signed in secret and released, unannounced, on the White House website.
The Executive Order specifically excludes Congressional oversight.
Executive Orders are not confirmed by vote of Congress, thereby undermining and usurping the power which was designed to rest with the citizenry via their representatives in Congress. The NDRP removes due process and judicial oversight of ANY action by the Government.
The Defense Production Act, 1950, granted the government powers in the event of national emergencies. Since 2001, government power has increased under the guise of the war on terror. With this latest Executive Order, every aspect of American life is controlled by the President and his cabinet secretaries at their discretion and without challenge.
The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that proclaimed the entire country a "battlefield," was rushed through Congress with little debate. NDAA 2012 authorizes the president and his agents the ability to arrest any U.S. citizen without proof of criminal activity, due process, or judicial oversight; and, detain them indefinitely without charge or trial, in direct violation of the Constitution. Yet, the Congress can do nothing about it because Congressional Democrats repeatedly block efforts to hold the President accountable to the Constitution.
The NDAA 2012 gives the president sole authority to revoke the freedoms of U.S. citizens; and, Executive Order #13617, assigns this power through the president to the secretaries that run the government.
Executive Order #13617 allows the president and his secretaries to commandeer all U.S. domestic resources, including food and water (even that which is in a citizen's home), water resources, as well as seize all energy and transportation infrastructure, as well as, forcibly draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to satisfy "labor requirements" for "national defense."
Executive Order #13617 allows the government unfettered control over every aspect of the nation in defiance of the Constitution. From experience, I awyers know how to break the law without consequence. Maybe we shouldn't have a president who studied Constitutional law. It is quite possible he studied Constitutional law for a reason.
How did we get to this juncture, when the checks and balances of our Representative Government have been devastated?
We only have to look at the history of this century to recognize that it is by these very means of seizing power that tyrants such as Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot conquer.
Islam and the Rest of the World Can Never Be Friends
The U.S. Government has done nothing to close the 35 terrorist training camps still operated by 'Muslims of America', headed by Jamaat ul-Fugra, which is responsible for nearly 50 attacks in the U.S. soil. To add insult to injury, the State Department doesn't list the organization among foreign terrorists.
Jamaat ul-Fuqra purchased or leased hundreds of acres from New York to California, upon which, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, boasts of conducting “the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare.” He has been operating camps in the U.S. for over twenty-five years and has been linked to multiple murders, bombings and various other felonies throughout the United States and Canada.
In Gilani’s recruitment video directed to English-speaking persons, he states: “We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots are America.” Gilani also states, “Act like you are his friend. Then kill him,” and explains how to handle American “infidels.” The recruitment video provides instruction in weaponry, sabotage and subversive operations, and how to kidnap and kill Americans.
Muslims of the Americas Inc. is a tax-exempt organization linked to Jamaat ul-Fuqra by court documents. The organization's communes consist of primarily black, American-born Muslims recruited through various 'social service' organizations and prisons. The organization supports various terrorist groups operating in Pakistan and Kashmir, and Gilani is directly linked to Hamas and Hezbollah.
Seven compounds are listed as training facilities, including: Marion, Alabama; Commerce, Georgia; Macon, Georgia; Talihina, Oklahoma; York County, South Carolina; Dover, Tennessee and Red House, Virginia. Other facilities are located in California, Colorado, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia.
Arutz Sheva reports an undisclosed number of Jewish girls from Judea and Samaria reported to local security forces that Palestinian Authority Arabs attempted to lure them into a vehicle Sunday evening.
Recently, there have been thefts from local farmers. In July, Arabs stole about 400 goats from Avraham Herzlich's herd. Only four goats were left, obliterating his business. Shmuel Hertzlich, Avraham’s son, told Arutz Sheva, “There were threats, both threats at attempted theft and at harm to the shepherd.” Israel’s Shin Bet security service would issue periodic warnings to Avraham.
In July, two young Israeli men were robbed near Shilo by an Arab carjacking gang. The Israelis' crashed vehicle was found a short time later in the nearby Arab town of Kfar Duma.
In May, security agents revealed a terrorist cell in Judea and Samaria that failed several times to kidnap residents, especially women. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) cell planned to use a kidnapping to negotiate the release of jailed terrorists.
Shmuel expressed frustration with the sense of lawlessness in the region, quoting the Biblical phrase, “In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes.”
Itzik Shadmi, chairman of the Binyamin Residents' Council, reported they had been warned that the successful thefts would encourage Arabs to harm the residents, as well.
At least Israel understands how Arabs are emboldened - the U.S. still has not learned this lesson although it has had 33 years to do so.
Before you decide that this isn't an article that you would like to read, ask yourself, 'Why?' You don't want to know the truth? Is it too difficult to read? Are you not interested in learning something? Not entertaining enough? Do you not care?
If you refuse to read the facts, then you are simply cattle - cows - animals with little intelligence who are herded into pens, then into chutes where they are killed, one by one; watching the cow in front of them die, yet proceeding forward, willingly. Your actions reveal that your brain is mush.
As I mourn for the dumbing down of the citizenry of the United States of America, I wonder at how many pridefully, willfully, and insistently remain blind to facts.
The robot media have made 'conspiracy theories' laughable, yet believe Area 51 holds the bodies of aliens. Doesn't each investigative article begin with a theory? Then the reporter investigates the facts to see if he is correct.
These are the facts:
I could continue, but if this list isn't enough, more will not convince you.
If this were a Republican President, you would be screaming for his head on a platter.
Barack Hussein Obama is the only President who has gotten away with all of this, and the American people still believe he is worthy to hold office?!?
I'll bet Nixon would have loved to have been in office in this era of brainlessness. I hate to sound mean, but you deserve what you get. The rest of us who still use our brains - don't!
I am not going to post the e-mails we all receive about anti-semitism around the world. Some believe it: some don't. I didn't.
Over the last few months, as I have commented on various articles, I have been called some pretty awful names: all of them anti-Jewish terms. Not Italian, Polish, or any other ethnicity or nationality. I wondered how they would assume from my comment that I'm Jewish since my married name is anything BUT.
A friend forwarded a video about the Illuminati because she was confounded that the YouTube post blamed everything on the Jews. Of course! Jews have always been hated and blamed for everything from the black plague in Europe to the myriad problems in the world today. There have been more UN resolutions against Israel than all other nations on earth.
But, now there are attacks on Jews in general, not just Israel. Jews are being blamed for the Illuminati, Federal Reserve, and the new world order plan. Granted, Jews were involved. But, so were Christians, Satanists, et al. We are headed for global extermination of some 90% of the earth's population in order to bring it to a 'manageable' amount. I believe, Jews will be the first; followed closely by Christians, and those who are a 'drain on society.'
If you voted for Barack Hussein Obama, you have been duped. There are so many things his puppeteers have planned for a second term, since he will have much more flexibility (as he told Putin's crony, Medvedev). Think about it! A second and final term President has no one to answer to, except his conscience and desire to do right by the American people. And, Congress hasn't stopped him, yet.
Here's one example of Obama's secret plans: 'A senior Palestinian Authority negotiator has told WND that if President Obama secures another four years in office, he will use his second term to target Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the main party to blame for the collapse of Mideast peace talks.
The negotiator further claimed that Obama quietly pledged to the Palestinians a campaign at the United Nations to renew U.N. Security Council Resolution 242, which calls for a Palestinian state to be established in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and eastern Jerusalem.
The PA negotiator said the White House had asked the Palestinians to slow their drive for the unilateral declaration of a state at the U.N. General Assembly.
The negotiator further said Obama had promised the PA that the establishment of a Palestinian state will be one of the main priorities for a second term.
“We were told that the negotiations for a Palestinian state will be a main goal for Obama,” said the negotiator. “Netanyahu will be declared the main person responsible for the collapse of the peace process.”'
A United States President making promises to further the interests of another country or group. Shouldn't he be first concerned with the interests of U.S. citizens? Like jobs? The debt? Bankruptcy?
That's what you get when you don't THINK for yourself! Good luck, America! You're going to need it.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord! (Joshua)
