Common Sense Doesn’t Need A Visa

Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Rogozin’s recent combative remark, “tanks don’t need visas,” is what can be called an ‘overflow.’ They were easy words for him to say because the United States is only a threat as long as our oil is still flowing and our words are still considered solid. With our economy in the hands of the Chinese, and our nation overrun with and generally governed by selfish children, he felt comfortable in saying that. ‘Taking down America’ is probably a break room joke between Vladimir Putin and the rest of the boys. (Notice that he was not in the slightest censured for his remarks. That’s got to tell you something – or at least it should.)

There was a time, specifically November 18, 1956, when a Russian leader (Nikita Khrushchev), not one of his assistants, made the remark “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will dig you in.” Shortly after he’d said that, he was relieved of his duties. The Politburo didn’t want him running his mouth like that because they had a healthy respect for a mighty America. Nikita was from the old school – a school that has never been closed – and the lesson there is, “If I’m tough enough, I can take whatever you have.”*

So many in America today make fun of what used to be called the ‘Cold War.’ If you are looking to stand alone these days, just put forth the notion of socialism/communism taking over America. You’ll be laughed to scorn. Ridicule is the feared mace of political correctness, and any legitimate caution expressed regarding Marxism actually doing what it was designed to do – destroy our nation – is dismissed as paranoia and ‘McCarthyism.’ That misapplied term will shut up an ill-equipped conservative just like ‘Birther’ works perfectly in silencing anyone who would dare to bring up the fact of our own president’s mysterious origins.

Truly, the bludgeon of political correctness has closed a lot of mouths that might otherwise speak out against the madness that is happening all around us today in the West. Americans who are about the business of destroying us enjoy the luxury to do their work under the protection of the First Amendment. When you step on someone’s toes, they exercise their right to tell you to back off. And back off we have – without even using that same sanction to voice much-needed rebuttal.

Dmitri Rogozin went on to rightly observe what only a fool could ignore – namely that “(America’s) foundations will collapse under the onslaught of ISIS and gays.” Call him a prophet, but he simply expressed the sentiment of most of the onlooking world. We are just too blind or too stupid to face that fact. Our president, the Chair and Chief Spokesperson for America’s ‘Muslims ‘R’ Us,’ has been the principal force in engineering the total acceptance of the Trojan horse that most of our nation is currently welcoming and celebrating.

And, with the help of the liberal entertainment, news, and communication media, again, any patriots who try to draw attention to the now-opening belly of that horse – whether it is an Allen West, a Pam Geller, a Steve Crowder, a Western Journalism, me, or anyone else who refuses to applaud the Emperor’s new attire – represent the new McCarthyism. We are ‘the Birthers.’ We are labeled as whatever will best defuse any dire warning that needs to be broadcast – before it is too late. And it is now just shy of too late.

And most people have forgotten that the pen is mightier than the sword only as long as the sword protects the pen.

Putin, Rogozin, and the rest of the world that has its eyes open, in other words those who still remember the most simple lesson (*see above) taught by the most brutal teacher (historical EXPERIENCE), see an America blinded and lost to its own preferred distractions. A backbiting serpent is strong at the helm after two consecutive terms given him by politically correct revelers and lazy people who wouldn’t put down the remote long enough to get to the polls.

To quote John Wayne and a million other people who have kept godliness, perception, and common sense enthroned where it should be, “Some people won’t see the enemy for what it is until it comes up and bites them on the a**.” (This is where we are now finding ourselves.)

A Plea To The Prisoners Of The Quran

I recently wrote an article entitled “Islam: Dirty Work At The Crossroads.” I compared the current Islamization of America to a huge, out of control train. In that analogy, our nation is a stalled car at a railroad crossing – where Obama has parked us – and the coal train (Islam) is bearing down hard and fast toward our destruction. It was not an optimistic picture because my comparison is not an exaggeration.

I talked about the ‘malevolent spirit’ that drives that terroristic train. That got some attention.

The afternoon of its release, Arab World News picked up my story from Western Journalism. It was their lead feature for a while and stayed on their front page for the balance of the day. It remains in their archives. They chose my most provocative statement and ran THAT beneath the accompanying photograph.

I have since made stronger statements about the deception and danger of Islam. The world needs to be awakened to the realities of this “religion of peace” that will mow down anything in its path that is contrary to it.

On a Christian church marquis, a pastor recently put up the words “We don’t have to agree on ANYTHING, to be kind to one another.” Militant Islamists haven’t a nodding aquaintence with the concept of amicable disagreement. They kill people who disagree with them. Americans, however, are not obliged to cower before their tantrums.

Christians have been martyred for simply remaining faithful to God. Islam’s ‘martyrs’ include vaporized clones who have packed their own wives and children with explosives. Only the devil sees his prisoners as being so cheaply disposable.

I have to write about all this because I’m a Christian. The Bible calls it ‘exposing the works of darkness’ – an effort all Christians are supposed to take part in. While I have the right and opportunity here in America to openly speak the truth (and I don’t see that lasting much longer), I am obligated to expose devilish error – which Islam is. (Ephesians 5:11, Acts 4:12, etc.)

I’m not retracting anything I wrote – but one very important point should be added and emphasized. I pray that many of those who read my criticism of Islam will read this:

While America can still be considered a predominantly ‘Christian’ nation, we are generally no longer behaving as such. Nevertheless, I feel safe in saying that the remnant of ‘Christian America’ (and that includes this author) bears NO HATRED toward the PEOPLE of Islam.

Islam’s arrogant and paranoid ruling infrastructure has convinced their followers that Christianity opposes and hates the individual Muslim. And that simply isn’t so.

The One who made us all, THE TRUE GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (and the same One who may now be tapping on the door of your heart [John 16:7-8]) has commanded, indeed BEGS, His children to love all who don’t know Him personally. Far from hating Islamic people (as Islam HATES those who oppose it), we hate what Islam does to people and what we see it doing to our nation and the world.

I have known some Muslims, personally. Most have been friends and easy to love. Beneath the heavyhanded demands of Islam, Muslims are simply imperfect people, like the rest of us. The crucial difference between Muslims and Christians is that real Christians possess the forgiveness of God–and they KNOW it. They live and rest in it. Muslims, and others outside of Christ’s atoning sacrifice, only know the hard LABOR of trying (in vain) to earn God’s acceptance.

The prophet Amos once asked: “Can two walk together (in the same direction) unless they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3) The obvious answer is “No.” And that’s why true Christians can’t be politically correct. Even the threat of Islamic violence (and there is plenty of that) ultimately cannot force a Christian to pretend that God is in any way involved with that false religion.

Again, believing Christians are NOT haters of THE Muslim PEOPLE. We only despise the false religion that will wind them up in hell. And Islam is just that.

All the Bible-prophesied insanity happening around us confirms the spiritual battle underway for the souls of mankind. Fighting that battle, for the true Christian, is never a contest of ‘my god against your god,’ but rather the sincere presentation of the Word of God given in prayerful love. The crux of the battle centers entirely upon the light of God’s simple, verifiable truth exposing and vanquishing deceitful treachery.

The dark ayatollahs and imams of Islam keep followers in blinded obedience by the intimidating cruelty found in the Quran. Yet the love of God in Christ can easily break that spell. The might of God’s love is infinitely more powerful than the threat of the Islamic god’s vengeance. And people will obey, out of sheer gratitude, the promptings of God’s love, while legalistic fear will only produce compliant slaves.

The bottom line, Muslims, is that Jesus of the Bible died and conquered death (which your Quran denies). He put together the perfect covenant as a GIFT and told his children to help Him pursue the souls of lost mankind.

His enemy, the prince of darkness (who disguises himself as an angel of light [2 Corinthians 11:14]), will not relinquish his prisoners voluntarily. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Corinthians 3:17) For the Muslim, there is no liberty–only law and judgment enforced by the fear of severe punishment and even death.

Islam’s undeniably carnal ‘heaven’ is eternal sex for the men and a vaguely described breather for the women who have obediently waited upon them.

The Christian’s heaven is simply being in the presence of God, available to all God’s born-again children, man or woman! Until you have tasted of His pure love and peace, you can’t even imagine what I’m talking about.

Certainly not all Americans are Christian. So don’t expect godly treatment from America, per se (especially under the leadership of our current president). But from real Christians, worldwide, our heart’s message to you is: “We love and pray for you. But the time remaining in this life, this time of decision, is short and soon to cease.”

Recognize the ungodly brutality of Islam for what it is, and repent. Say a silent prayer to that still, small voice in your heart which confirms His love for you! Call upon Jesus and be saved. It’s that simple.

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

“And every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:11)

An American Standoff

With the recent shootings of the two wannabe terrorists in Garland, Texas, the point is perfectly illustrated – AGAIN – that Islam is indeed the universal, impromptu terror machine for all seasons. The Quran is the demonic* handbook that packages ‘militant Islam’ thinly veiled in the text along with an obfuscating ‘peaceful Islam’ (which is just a religious-looking sham to force Westerners to treat Islamists as ‘church people’).

*[Author’s Note: If the word ‘demonic’ seems harsh or inflammatory, it is, nonetheless, accurate. As a Christian, I am under contract with Jesus to tell the WHOLE uncomfortable truth – without mincing words – regarding this cult that denies even the death and reserrection of our Savior. I can’t water down the lies of the adversary just because his emissaries threaten the lives of those who expose him.]

Carefully orchestrated studies have shown that Muslims are infiltrating modern civilization just as innocuously as a troop of Girl Scouts selling cookies. They first push the story that they worship the same God everyone else does–just in a different way. Recruiting is currently booming, especially among high school and college kids looking for adventure and their own fifteen minutes of fame before freaked-out parents and peers. Prior to their ‘conversion,’ they often were sweet, marginal Catholics, Lutherans, or Baptists. But, suddenly they are wearing beanies or burqas and sporting big fat paperback Qurans!

Spoiled Western girls (who’ve never been beaten or used as servile, subordinate maids/baby-makers) love their attention-getting veils – and the ‘awesome dudes’ are digging their beards and headgear for the same reason.

An Islamic takeover is happening before our eyes, at light speed. As in other non-muslim nations, the numbers of Muslims rapidly increase without much fanfare. It’s a fad, tailor-made for naive people looking for a twisted version of romance and adventure. The police are often told by politically correct city officials to just leave the Muslims to themselves, ignoring recent history and common sense (for fear of giving even the appearance of religious persecution or ‘profiling’).

What America doesn’t want to wake up to is the nightmare of the cancer that has already engulfed most of Europe–and much of what’s left of the ‘free world.’

For example, Islam in London or Paris was once looked upon as a normal societal accessory – like one of the boroughs in New York City being predominantly Polish, Jewish, or Italian. Today, Islam is now the big, touchy elephant standing in the center of the room; and governments are tiptoeing around the nightmare of the possibility of offending that monster.

Muslims want better treatment and consideration than the churches of America that have been with us since long before Barack put us in his downline. As they grow in number, they hide behind the constitutional guarantee of religious freedom while denying the rest of us our freedom of speech. But, again, like in Paris or London, when they have grown to the point of being a bullying plurality, we will suddenly have squads of strident volunteer ‘sharia enforcement’ weirdos running around telling women how short their skirts can be and sniffing for alcohol.

You can do handstands being politically correct in dealing with the Islamic presence – but don’t insult and endanger the rest of us by perpetuating the stupid notion that Muslims are no different from other American religions. I mean, when was the last time you heard anyone say, “You don’t want to piss off those Presbyterians! They’ll blow up your subway!”?

Islam is not a religion. It is a power/political system disguised as religion. They are here to dominate and control. It is the express purpose of Islam to make the world safe for the approaching ‘Perfect Day’ (the complete destruction of ANYTHING that isn’t Islam) when their ‘prophet’ will set up his ‘kingdom.’

The Mohammed cartoon contest was one UNIQUELY AMERICAN way to protest Islam’s complete and arrogant INTOLERANCE. Such sarcastic, rebellious – NONVIOLENT – demonstrations have been integral in building and maintaining the peculiar country that we are (when we are at our best).

And Christianity, BTW, is criticized and maligned/insulted (by a slimy world that knows Christians won’t usually fight back) infinitely more than Islam. And in that same arrogant spirit, the most recent dare is hurled at us thusly:

“The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah [ruling authority] in the heart of our enemy …. To those who protect (Ms. Geller, the creator of the cartoon contest): this will be your only warning of housing this woman and her circus show. Everyone who houses her events, gives her a platform to spill her filth are legitimate targets. We have been watching closely who was present at this event and the shooter of our brothers.” (A terroristic threat that is treated as ‘Free Speech’ and tolerated by cowering Americans who are telling indignant Americans to hold their tongues.)

[Author’s Note: You have a standing invitation, Ms. Geller, to stage the Garland, Texas, program in my living room.]

But when ISIS announces that they have X amount of ‘trained soldiers’ in various locations here in our country, it is very likely a lie. Putting numbers and venues with the claim just naturally helps to augment an appearance of power and credibility. They are simply leaning on the fact that there is an inexhaustible supply of freelance, grandstanding ‘Muslims’ over here who want to gain acceptance into the inner lodge, by taking down anything that appears to criticize Islam or its tantrums.

In response to such grimy, nebulous threats, most of contemporary America is now lazy and spineless enough to announce to Islam and the world, “We will give you whatever you want: our respect, our deference, special rights, your sharia law, our well-meaning ignorant children, ISRAEL, etc. (oh yeah, and your own representative [effectively constituting a ‘wiliya’] in our Oval Office) … just, please, let us live in peace!”

Well, maybe there are a lot of Americans who can lie down under that bus. But, as for me, I will remain as another voice in the FREE American wilderness, crying: “It’ll be a cold day in hell.”

Here’s How Israel Confirms The Authenticity Of Christianity

If there were no other basis on which to confirm the Christian faith, beyond the prophetic reestablishment of Israel and the spite they have continually received from much of the world … that, by itself, will do it for me.

The Bible’s Old and New Testaments are filled with prophecy regarding (among lots of other things now unfolding) God bringing the true children of Abraham back together – to the very land to which Moses had led them – in the closing days of this planet. It’s like a big, perfect circle – now being closed.

Here are some of the Bible’s predictions that, after thousands of years, have recently come to pass:

  • Jews (many of them unbelieving) from all around the world, mysteriously returning to that tiny strip of land on the Mediterranean! (Isaiah 11:11-12, Jeremiah 30:3, etc.)
  • The reestablishment of Israel as a nation! (Ezekiel 37:21-22 Isaiah 66:7-8, etc.) That happened May 14, 1948.
  • Jerusalem is once again occupied by the Jews! (Zechariah 8:4-8), That happened June 7, 1967.
  • The Hebrew language – formerly all but lost – is once again the common language of the Jews! (Zephaniah 3:9, etc.)
  • Agriculturally, Israel is a productive land of plenty! (Ezekiel 36:34-35, etc.)
  • But, especially, the deadly hateful response of Israel’s neighbors and much of the world regarding their right to even exist! (Zechariah 12:1-3, etc.)

There are other prophecies yet to be fulfilled (and fulfilled they will be, and soon) regarding the fate of this little country which started out (before bullying neighbors began trying to cut her up) just a little larger than New Jersey.

Given the history of Israel and the Jewish people, even the present-day existence of either is nothing short of miraculous.

Among Christians, there are differing opinions as to the details involved in the fulfillment of these prophecies. Nevertheless, to the unbelieving world (and I was once a devout unbeliever), these happenings should at least give us pause as to the legitimacy of Jesus’ claim of Lordship as well as the veracity of his Bible.

In other words: it’s time to wake up, everybody.

When I was a hippie, back in the 60s/70s, I gave a good “right on!” to some Native Americans who were trying to reclaim Alcatraz and even garner additional compensation for having been ‘swindled’ out of Manhattan and Long Island. Their grievances had surfaced just a couple hundred years after the fact – but without success.

Historically, different peoples and nations have tried in vain to reclaim lost lands. Yet – just as God cited THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO – Jews from all over the earth, like the conscripted pilgrims headed for Wyoming in Spielberg’s “Close Encounters,” have returned and are returning to their promised land. And all this, as we know, is occurring despite overwhelming opposition.

[As America more and more turns its back on our little ally, I am often reminded of God’s words to Abraham regarding how He will deal with the big world surrounding a severely outnumbered Israel: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you (speaking much of the reconciliation we were all given through one of Abraham’s grandsons, Jesus).” (Genesis 12:3)]

The Bible talks about the world’s ongoing contempt for the Jews. The Bible tells me to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. The Bible informs us that – in ‘THE LAST DAYS’ – the HATRED against Israel will be so intense that the armies of the world will encamp themselves around that comparatively TINY place in seeking her distruction. How did all that get into the Bible – and in such ordered chronology – several millennia before the fact?!

Knowing anything at all about world history, who in their right mind can attribute these realities to mere coincidence? But the Bible says that many people will do just that. The Bible calls it ‘willful ignorance.’ (2 Peter 3:5, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, etc.)

God further tells us that in the unprecedentedly turbulent last days, He will lead all men into a ‘valley of decision.’ (Joel 3:14) It’s a time for making up our minds, once and for all. And that’s where we find ourselves today. In everyone’s lives, there are forks in the road. It’s always been that way. But today, the forks involving our faith and morality (or lack thereof) are coming faster; and the consequences of those decisions are significantly more dire and foreseeable. And the ‘rest areas’ at those divergences – the grace periods allowed for mulling things over – are less available and exceedingly brief in their duration.

Bottom line: you may be steeled in your atheism and believe the universe, mankind, and all the things we enjoy as humans – from avocados to peaches and mountain sunsets to sex – are all just convenient, coincidental flukes. But these predictions – given by God way beforehand, as proofs of His existence – are also attributable to dumb luck? Don’t be absurd.

Jesus Christ is coming soon. Get right with Him, or be left without Him. Because the true God created no robots, the choice is all yours. The time for that choice, however, is rapidly drawing to a close.
