We tried and failed. We on the Right worked hard to rid our government of the man who would deign to utter the words “The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam”, in complete rejection of our First Amendment and complete rejection of Judaism and Christianity. We tried and failed.
And just as we Christians and the practicing Jews here in the US are having our Religious Freedoms stripped from us by the Obama administration are left further unprotected and unsafe and unfree, so are you, Israel. You’re on your own. For the next four years, you cannot count on the US to help keep you safe from the Mohammedan terrorists surrounding you who want nothing less than your total annihilation.
You are now “a nation of unwalled cities” and only Providence can help you now. You have no friendly nations to come to your rescue.
But you still have many millions of people here in the US who are praying vehemently to Adonai on your behalf. The US will fail you, and just did. But Yahweh will not. Even as the followers of the evil, genocidal, pedophiliac, burning in Sheol Mohammed redouble their efforts to destroy you, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Joseph will be there for you. As He promised.

As the polls have begun opening across this great land and our efforts to oust the anti-American, anti-Constitutional, anti-Christian Socialist tyrant see fruition (or not), I thought some inspirational music with a reminder should be in order.

John Hitchcock has informed me that Lee DeCovnick of the American Thinker picked up and referenced my article, The Fort Hood Massacre victims: no Purple Hearts for them!, published on TRUTH BEFORE DISHONOR. It was published on THE FIRST STREET JOURNAL as well, but the link was to the article on Mr Hitchcock’s site.
It’s interesting that that link came today; Sister Toldjah tweeted:
Here’s the story:
Published October 18, 2012 | Associated Press
FORT HOOD, Texas – An Army appeals court has ruled that the Fort Hood shooting suspect can have his facial hair forcibly shaved off before his murder trial.
The U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals’ opinion issued Thursday upheld the military trial judge’s decision to order Maj. Nidal Hasan to appear in court clean shaven or be forcibly shaved.
It also ruled that Col. Gregory Gross, the judge, properly found that the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act doesn’t give Hasan the right to have a beard while in uniform at trial.
Hasan has said the beard is an expression of his Muslim faith. His attorneys say they’ll appeal the ruling.
I wonder: do they have to use lather and hot water, or is a dry straight razor acceptable?
Of course, I’m sure that they will use an electric razor on this fine example of the religion of peace.
I suspect that Major Hasan’s insistence on wearing a beard is less “an expression of his Muslim faith” than it is of doing what little he can to spite the Army and the United States again. If it were truly his Muslim faith, after having launched a martyrdom attack, he would proudly plead guilty and ask for a sentence of death. Perhaps he thinks that he’ll be able to use his court martial to issue some kind of grandiose statement, but the presiding officer will quickly squelch that.
I don’t recall discussing the death penalty much on THE FIRST STREET JOURNAL, but readers of my old site will recall that I am opposed to capital punishment. Major Hasan could be sentenced to death if found guilty, and part of me would like to see that, just so we could see how the brave Islamist warrior shrinks from such a fate and appeals the sentence. But, in reality, the best sentence would be life in prison, deprived of all of his religious materials, with a crucifix hanging on his wall, forever out of his reach, and a promise to throw his body to the pigs when he finally dies. Let him languish, remembering every day as he urinates and defecates in his diaper¹ that while he may have killed fourteen people who were better than him, he is really a small and unimportant
man creature, headed only for Hell.
¹ – Major Hasan was paralyzed from the waist down by fire from the security guards who finally stopped his rampage.

Candace Cameron-Bure is a beautiful woman, inside and out. I posted photos of her this year, alluding to one of the Holiest days of the year. That article will most likely be the most viewed article on this site this year, despite this being a political blog and this year being one of the most important political years in many decades. It was the case before the last couple days. It is much more the case now, as the last couple days added 1,000 views. So people are very much interested in her beauty.
But it’s her mind that is the most beautiful thing about her. She gave a Convocation address at Liberty University, which then posted it on YouTube in January of this year. In it, she discussed her own life and journey to living a true Christian life. She discussed how being a “good person” simply wasn’t good enough, and that she was herself in danger of Hell, but is no longer.
She’s a very good role model, someone to be looked up to and emulated as she shines the light on the One True God, coming out of a city and industry that promotes hedonistic libertine lifestyles. Shane made an excellent comment on my Candace photo article. “She has certainly aged with grace…I think what makes her so hot is what she doesn’t do….no r rated flops on her resume.” The reason why she doesn’t have any R-rated flops on her resume is because she refuses to do them. No movies glorifying immorality for her. She shared a passage from Scripture which convicted her. 1 Corinthians chapter 6, verses 9 and 10.
9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
It is because of that and other information she learned that she quit being a “good person” and chose to live a life of Christ. And she won’t be swayed by the Democrat war on women or by Democrats (even elected Democrat women) calling her not a woman, due to her righteous, God-fearing life.
Yes, Candace Helaine Cameron-Bure has a very beautiful mind. And that’s what’s most important.

As the Mohammedan, anti-Christian, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish uprisings and terror attacks greatly increase such as the multiple attacks on US embassies and consulates on the anniversary of 9/11 and the greatly expanded attacks since; and as the US, under Obama, has shown great weakness in the face of the Mohammedan terrorists and even animosity toward Israel, it is again important to note that all this stuff was prophesied.
I cannot spell out the upcoming events any better than Professor Johan Malan did in March of 2011, so I’ll let him spell it out.
The Russo/Arab invasion of Israel
According to Ezekiel 38 and 39, various Arab countries will attack Israel under the leadership of Russia, in an effort to bring them to their knees and wipe Israel off the map. Gog, of the land Magog, (that is modern Russia in the land north of the Caucasus Mountains) will join forces with Persia (Iran), Togarmah (Turkey), Ethiopia, Libya, and Gomer (Germany or one or other East-European nation) to invade Israel. Other nations will also join them to form a very big and formidable power.
Israel’s enemies plan to obtain the participation of Russia for this big war. To Russia there is the benefit of interests in the Middle East oil fields. They would also want to prevent China from rendering military aid to the Arabs, should Russia itself refuse to do so. Although reluctantly, Russia will, according to the Bible, agree to participate in a war of annihilation against the Jewish state (Ezek. 38:4).
The war of Ezekiel 38 and 39 is steadfastly approaching. The Lord will reveal Himself in a very definite and unmistakable way through preventing this war (Ezek. 38:16). The sudden supernatural destruction of the invading forces by fire is clearly mentioned (Ezek. 39:4-6). There will also be a very big earthquake in Israel (Ezek. 38:19).
Russia, Israel and all the nations will recognise God because of this very clear supernatural intervention. That will bring about a major change in thinking as most of the peoples of the world, including Israel, have largely lapsed into agnosticism, materialism and humanism and consequently rejected, ignored or degraded the Triune God and His Word. Virtually all of them regard Christianity to be on an equal level with the pagan religions. In a typical postmodern fashion they view the religious statements and moral guidelines of the Bible as old-fashioned, irrelevant and obsolete.
With the supernatural destruction of Israel’s enemies, the nations will acknowledge that the God of Israel and the Bible is the true God who should be feared and worshipped. That will override atheism, agnosticism and secularism. There will however be such feeble knowledge of God that they will accept the wrong person, the Antichrist, as Christ and representative of God. He will exploit the nations’ veneration for supernatural signs and, together with the false prophet, present a spectacle of signs and wonders (2 Thess. 2:9-10; Rev. 13:12-14). Humanity will accept it in reverence and awe.
The signs and wonders of the Antichrist and false prophet will be so amazing, and the claim by the Antichrist that he is a descendant of King David who was sent to the world on behalf of all faiths, will sound so convincing, that even Israel will be deceived into accepting him as their promised Messiah (John 5:43). He will claim credit for the sudden termination of the threatening war in Israel, and that will overnight propel him to the position of prince of peace and unchallenged world leader. The Gentile nations will join Israel in concluding a seven-year treaty with him and recognise him as their leader. They will follow him in amazement (Rev. 13:3-4) and hail him for delivering humanity from a threatening third world war, averting a certain economic collapse, and restoring the ailing world economy and getting it back on track.
Where are Israel’s allies and defenders? Who will come to her side? The obvious answer is nobody will come to Israel’s aid because all have abandoned her. But Providence, the One True God, will indeed do so in a very obvious manner. Enter the Anti-Christ and False Prophet to take the credit, and the 7-Year Tribulation begins.
Look at what is happening in the Middle East, in Russia, in China, in Europe, and in the US. “Study to shew thyself approved.” End Times Prophecy will happen, and is happening right before your eyes.

In these End Times, with the many anti-christs and, I fervently believe, THE Anti-Christ walking the Earth today and doing their worst, it behooves us to take some time to look to the One, the Savior, the King of Kings. For our destiny is glorious, and not of our doing.

This is a follow-up to my previous article. (Again, originating as a comment on The First Street Journal.)
According to the US Census Bureau, the fastest growing part of the US is the South (not to be confused with the southwest). And, with the Census Bureau’s delineations, the South consists of 38 percent of the US population. (There are four regions.) The Northeast and the Midwest combine for 122.2 million people. The South alone stands at 114.6 million people. And the West has 71.9 million people. And nationally, Democrats are pretty much giving up on the South as a whole, ceding basically 38 percent of the electoral college to Republicans right out the gate. That means Democrats must win the states in the other 3 regions basically 9 – to – 1 (by electoral college numbers). An 8 – to – 1 Democrat win in the other 3 regions would mean a Democrat loss nationally.
So, the Democrat Party, with Obama as its titular head, has given up on the South. How is he doing with the rest of the nation? Reports have him giving up on white, middle class blue-collar workers, who did a lot of work to get him elected in 2008. Oops. Lost votes, some of which will vote Republican this time and others who will not vote for President or will cast a protest vote for a Third Candidate. Baraka alienated a great many Catholics, who traditionally vote Democrat, by telling the Roman Catholic Church that it absolutely must commit immoral acts if it wants to continue its charitable work. Big oops. Baraka alienated a not-so-small number of black pastors, who lead black churches (and thus, their flocks give much heed to what they say) by declaring himself a homosexual “marriage” proponent. Big oops.
Now, while The RCC constituency which traditionally vote Democrat could very well swing Republican — doing great harm to Barack’s goal of winning a second Presidential election — the black church constituency will likely not vote Republican in any major way. There will be more blacks voting Republican this time around than last time (percentage-wise), as Obama won an historic 97 percent of the black vote (making blacks the most lock-step, monolithic voting sub-group in US history), but overall, this huge outcry of horror from black pastors will mostly suppress the black vote. Many of these black pastors, who hold sway in their churches, have declared they cannot, at all, vote for Obama, but they will not, at all, vote for a Republican. That leaves not voting or protest voting Third Party. And Obama loses those votes, without picking up any votes (only scads of cash from rampant radical Leftists).
Every step of the way, these past 3+ years, Obama has alienated one base sub-group after another, without adding a single sub-group to his re-election bid. Every state’s voting output will shift more Republican as a result. Every state. It’s only a matter of degree. It’s called “focusing on the margins” and it’s not looking good for Obama at all. However, it is looking very beneficial for the survival of the US.

I’m on Arutz-7′s mailing list. I get Israel News Network mailings and mailings from some of their advertisers. And intentionally so. I got an email from people who want to teach me Hebrew online (and I would love to learn the Holy language of Hebrew but have neither the time nor the financial ability currently) announcing the celebration of 64 years after Israel’s “birth” which is, actually, Israel’s rebirth since Israel herself is thousands of years old. In that email was an offer of free Israel photos if I fill out a form. I did so. Beautiful photos.
"A land flowing with milk and honey."
Turning the desert wasteland into life-sustaining land.
Thriving Tel Aviv on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea
Israel's Capitol yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.
Turning barren wasteland into a land teeming with life.
64 years ago, Jewish people who had suffered one of the most aggressive attempts to annihilate Jewry in the history of the world came flowing into their ancient homeland against all odds and against the wishes of the international community. From that point until today, and continuing onward into the future, Israel has had to defend herself from the massively superior — both numerically and in firepower — enemies in the region and across the world who want nothing short of the total annihilation of Israel and Jewry. And Israel has been extraordinarily successful, beyond that which is even remotely humanly possible. Because Adonai is with them. Because Yahweh will not allow His Chosen People to be extinguished. Period. (Full stop, for those using The King’s English.) Not only has Israel succeeded beyond human capacity in defending herself from all her foes wishing her total destruction, she has also turned a barren, life-killing desert wasteland into “a land flowing with milk and honey.”
Barren land that Israel gains becomes agriculturally rich and self-sustaining land in very short time. And the reverse is also true. Land that Israel has turned into agriculturally rich and self-sustaining land; land that Israel has turned into money-making tourist destination; land that Israel has turned into economically booming land; that land, when turned over to Israel’s enemies in the hopes of shalom become barren once again. But it becomes worse than when Israel possessed it as it is not only barren, but filled with the ruins of a previously highly successful society, all the while housing large numbers of people who are absolutely incapable of sustaining themselves, but are only intent on eliminating Israel and Jewry from the face of the world map.
When Israel gained control of the Gaza Strip in a self-defense war to keep herself from being wiped off the map, the Gaza Strip was a barren desert that could not, at all, sustain life. Israel made it “a land flowing with milk and honey.” When Israel turned it over to the Palestinian terrorists in the hopes of shalom, the Palestinian terrorists who had no desire at all for shalom not only destroyed the land’s ability to sustain the people but also turned it into a terrorist haven from which to further its hate-filled goals to kill all Jews and to destroy Israel.
Israel pumps hundreds of millions of gallons of the life-blood of all peoples — fresh water — into lands that don’t have that life-blood, lands that want nothing less than for Israel to cease to exist and for all Jews to be eradicated, in the hopes for shalom. Israel is prosperous because of her people’s blood and sweat. Israel is an agricultural behemoth because of her people’s blood and sweat. Israel is a massive exporter of fresh water because of her people’s blood and sweat. Israel is in existence today despite the gargantuan odds against her because of her people’s blood and sweat. And all of this also because Providence will not let those who curse Israel — His Chosen People — succeed.
Israel, a land roughly the size of New Jersey, has succeeded against all human and Satanic odds against her, yet she only wants shalom. She has given up massive chunks of land for shalom. She has given up the Golan Heights for shalom. (The Golan Heights are Israel’s Sudetenland (see: Hitler and Czechoslovakia).) But all the nations surrounding Israel, all the Communist nations, all the Liberals in the US, especially Barack Obama and the absolute nutball Ron Paul, are arrayed against Israel. They have absolutely no desire for shalom in Israel. They want Israel dead.
“I will bless those that bless you and curse those that curse you.” — The Almighty, speaking to Israel.
