Golf's new champion?

Remember when George W. Bush was president, how many in the media--including "investigative" filmmaker Michael Moore--chided him for playing golf? How out of touch! Look at how much time he's wasting. Bush eventually stopped playing golf in 2003, out of respect for those who lost family members in the Iraq War.

Now, fast forward to 2010, and check out President Obama's love of the same game here. A love of the game, it appears, that far surpasses W.'s. Also, check out the last line of the story--it appears Obama's golf obsession is a touchy subject around the White House these days.

Memo to GOP: You now have the perfect ad for the fall elections. Obama golfs while America goes down the drain. Better hop to it.

Obama tells Egyptian foreign minister he is a Muslim

Once in a while I like to run a check on the Matthew 25 Network website, to get their alleged “Christian” perspective on the sinking ship that is the Obama administration. So M25N, what IS your view of president’s mishandling (or non-handling) of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster? Did Obama’s aides REALLY try to interfere with a congressional election, by offering one Democrat an administration post in return for not running against Arlen Specter? Things like that.

But alas—M25N’s website is nowhere to be found! Is all this just too much for our “progressive Christian” friends? Maybe the real answer can be found in the article here, where Pamela Geller at the Atlas Shrugs website has uncovered public statements by Egypt’s foreign minister, claiming that Obama told him that he is indeed a Muslim. This high official in Egypt’s government would have no reason to lie about his meeting with Obama, and Geller spells out the evidence to back up this bombshell.

The implications are chilling, to say the least. Was Obama simply trying to “impress” the foreign minister? Then this is serious deception indeed for someone claiming to be a Christian. It could well be that Obama never abandoned his Muslim beliefs, but “played church” for social and political reasons (yes, non-Christians, even atheists, have been known to do this—not that “Pastor” Jeremiah Wright’s church could be considered a truly Christian church).

So is it possible that M25N—which ballyhooed Obama’s “Christian testimony” during the presidential campaign—are now crawling back into the woodwork with their folly exposed? In a way, I’ll miss their website: their diatribes against evangelical beliefs (which they withheld until after the election); their pouting about “social justice” (while apparently not doing anything in the way of actually helping anybody); and other such humorous readings. And let’s not forget their slamming of Sarah Palin’s “unchristian behavior” (by the way, M25N, what did Obama say he wanted to do to BP officials in that NBC interview? You may want to check the replay on that one, whenever you get your heads out of the oil-drenched sand).

Who is inexperienced now?

Remember the battle cry of Democrats in October 2008? "Sarah Palin is too inexperienced to take the presidency if something happens to John McCain." Maybe those same voters should have applied that same standard to Barack Obama. Radio commentator Peter Heck's excellent article here sums it up.

Obama's "Christian" voice silent

The outrage over the disinviting of Evangelist Franklin Graham from the Pentagon's National Day of Prayer breakfast is spreading throughout the church world.

But it also brings up an interesting question: President Obama is commander-in-chief of the armed forces. With one word, he can reverse this anti-Christian debacle and bring Graham--son of Billy Graham, who has been friends with every president since Harry Truman--back to speaking at the event. Where is Obama's "Christian" voice now?

Never have we witnessed such anti-Christian bias emanating from the halls of power as we have see with this administration--and it appears it will only get worse. It is now being more clear each day that Obama's "Christian faith," propagated during the campaign by media lapdogs and the pseudo-Christian Matthew 25 Network, was a mere vote-grabbing charade. If the president wants to reassure Americans that he is a "man of faith," reinstating Graham to the prayer breakfast would be a good place to start.

Obama hates Israel?

Check our Dick Morris' excellent assessment of President Obama's continued humiliation of Israel here. The president's recent unprecedented mistreatment of Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu at a recent White House meeting, according to Morris, may be more calculated than many believe. I at first thought the continued slapping of our allies was mere idiocy or naivety--remember how Obamaites jumped all over VP candidate Sarah Palin for her lack of foreign policy experience, while totally ignoring Obama's? You can't get much more idiotic than walking out of a meeting with a head of state while essentially telling that leader to get their act together.

While the liberal Democratic worldview that America is responsible for all evil in the world may also play a part in Obama's foreign poicy ineptness, Morris' assessment should be a wake-up call to Jewish Americans who have been blindly throwing their support behind Obama.

Recently, "evangelical" wolf-in-sheep's clothing Jim Wallis claimed that Obama critic Glenn Beck "hates Jesus" because he exposed the "social gospel" and its Marxist roots. Maybe it's time we appropriate Wallis' lingo to describe the true state of US-Israeli relations, and simply sum it up: Obama hates Israel.

President Obama, put away malice

The following is an open letter to President Barack Obama:

“President Obama, Put Away Malice.

“As Christians, we are called to be respectful and loving toward our neighbors, honoring their intentions even if we disagree with their plans. We are also called to ‘put away falsehood’ (Eph 4:25) and to refrain from slandering, belittling, or speaking out of contempt for anyone.

“If these are the standards God has set for us in our personal lives, our church communities, and our neighborhoods, how much more so should they be the standards of those Christians who choose to be in the public eye? Shouldn't we also expect our brothers and sisters in politics to speak the truth in love and to extend respect and goodwill even to those with whom they disagree?

“In questioning not only his opponents’ policies but also their motivations, President Obama went far beyond what could be considered acceptable disagreement and into what seemed like open contempt for a political opponent.

“To be blunt, we saw very little of Jesus’ love in his recent health care speeches, as he heaped contempt on those who disagree with him politically, while offering no vision for how to resolve the critical issues facing Americans today.

“Therefore, we call on the president to repudiate his attitude of contempt towards political opponents and to tell the whole truth, not only for the sake of a more honorable politics, but also for the sake of our Christian witness in the world.”

By the way, if the above statement sounds somewhat familiar, it’s excerpted, with some changes, from a 2008 statement made by Matthew 25 Network, slamming Gov. Sarah Palin for her speech at the Republican National Convention. And I’m sure M25N will be jumping on this bandwagon, to urge Obama to exercise Christian values in his speeches, backroom deals … I mean negotiations, treatment of allies such as Israel and Great Britain, and in curbing some of that unchristian foul language we’ve been hearing from those around him, including his vice president.

Glenn Beck hates Jesus—or "progressive Christians" hate the truth?

With the health care nationalization debate heating up this week, complete with President Obama’s whining and Speaker Pelosi’s sleight-of-hand attempts at railroading the legislation through Congress (hey, Matthew 25 Network: how about a “Speaker Pelosi, Put Away Deception” campaign? Oh, I forgot—you only attack GENUINE Christians), an interesting slander was pulled off by Obama’s legions among “progressive Christians” against talk show host Glenn Beck this past weekend. According to a Time magazine article by Obama “spiritual advisor” and acolyte Jim Wallis, Beck now “hates Jesus.”

First off, I need to state that I have tons of theological problems with the heresies of the Mormon Church, to which Beck belongs. It must also be noted that Beck is gracious to evangelical Christians appearing on his Fox News TV show; in fact, Joel Rosenberg appears periodically on the show to discuss biblical prophecy as it relates to the Middle East. The criticism against Beck’s exposing the progressive movement’s destruction of America amounts to little more than ridicule of his methods. You hear about his crying on the air, for example, but you never hear where he is wrong on anything of substance (except when his enemies—including among the “progressive Christians” who apparently forget about all those Bible verses about bearing false witness—twist the truth to slander him).

Looks like Wallis’ attack is a desperation shot against Beck’s unmasking the health care nationalization campaign for what it truly is: a power grab by progressives, who want to tell us how to live our lives (Wallis’ clever slander may have also been calculated, counting on evangelicals to stay mum in defending Beck). And the resulting e-mail campaign against Beck by “progressive Christians” is truly pathetic, similar to the one Matthew 25 Network aimed at Dr. James Dobson and Focus on the Family last year. One letter after another (featured on M25N’s website) talked about how the writer loved the “Adventures in Odyssey” radio show while on the mission field, but gosh darn, how awful Dobson and his ministry had become for opposing Obama’s far-left agenda (you know, with all those people being missionaries, you would think the world would have been converted three times over by now).

It’s ironic that, with droves of people awakening to abandon the Obama altar, the ones who stay steadfast in their worship of him claim to be Christians! Maybe they should heed the words of a Christian who was forced to oppose his nation's idolatry of a leader—Dietrich Bonhoeffer: “Should the leader allow himself to succumb to the wishes of those he leads, who will always seek to turn him into an idol, then the image of the leader will become the image of the misleader. This is the leader who makes an idol of himself and his office, and thus mocks God” (from a 1933 speech).

“Little children, keep yourselves from idols,” the Bible warns in 1 John 5:21. That includes political idols, Mr. Wallis.

Obama "trashes" Dalai Lama

For those of you who stil cling to the illusion of our having a "spiritual" president: Here is a picture of the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet, after his meeting with President Obama last week. Note the Dalai Lama is being escorted out the BACK door, and the lovely bags of garbage there to greet him.
Why this back door shuffle? Our brave president doesn't want to upset China, who wanted the meeting cancelled (and who owns about $700 billion of our debt). Regardless of your religious beliefs, you cannot escape the fact that this picture is a slap in the face of the Dalai Lama and the oppressed people of Tibet.
And to those American "spiritual" leaders who supported and campaigned for Mr. Change: how much more proof do you need, to see that Obama is simply a Chicago politician who will dump YOU like garbage at the first opportunity, if it furthers his political interests or pleases his cheerleaders on the left?

Palin and Israel

President Obama's abysmal foreign policy--where he appeases dictators who mock him while stabbing our allies in the back--has created an especially precarious situation for Israel. Now that Iran is well on the way to developing nuclear weapons (according to the UN's atomic energy commission), it's all the more fitting that Jewish Americans reconsider their blind support of Obama.

Follow this link here to an excellent article by Israeli columnist Caroline Glick, on why American Jews should support Sarah Palin and her clear-headed opposition to Obama's destructive foreign policy towards Israel.

Go Tebow!

Check out this article here by CBS legal analyst Jan Crawford, on the hypocrisy of NOW and other women's rights groups in trying to ban the pro-life ad by Tim Tebow and his mother Pam ("Celebate Family, Celebrate Life") during the Super Bowl. I got to witness some of this stammering hyposcrisy the other day, when a "women's rights" advocate attempted to defend her position during an interview with Bill O'Reilly. Even the wolves-in-sheeps-clothing Matthew 25 Network is jumping into the game with a "campaign" of their own against CBS.

You see, when women want to discuss why they went through with pregnancy when others told them not to (in Pam Tebow's case, for medical reasons), NOW's response is the same as the worst male chauvinist: Shut up and sit down! THAT choice is not part of their so-called "pro-choice" universe. And their whining is only doing the opposite: brining more attention to the ad sponsored by Focus on the Family.

Is it too late for America?

Is it too late for America?

Right now I should be encouraged. People are waking up to the hard fact that their political savior Barak Obama is little more than a Chicago-style politician, who will do and say anything to hold onto power. The lapdog media’s disdain for the Tea Party movement shows the movement’s power in exposing the unbelievable arrogance of the Democrat-controlled Congress in ramming health care enslavement down our throats.

Right now, Republican Scott Brown may be taking a Senate seat held for 47 years by the late Ted Kennedy. And even in the massive tragedy in Haiti, we see the overwhelming benevolence of our nation in aiding the Haitian people—compare the $100 million that President Obama generously pledged to help (in addition to the assistance from many aid organizations) with the “generous” pledge from superpower China ($1 million) and the assistance being given by Venezuela’s moron Marxist dictator, Hugo Chavez ($0).

And yet, for a while, I have sensed we may be seeing great reform in our nation without true revival. I sense we’re seeing the same “reform without revival” that Judah’s kings saw in the Old Testament. Even the two greatest kings, Hezekiah and Josiah, who did not fear to take down the “high places” of idol worship that other kings left alone, ultimately could not change the people’s hearts--making them ripe for deception and corruption by the next evil king.

It’s happening in churches and is happening in our nation: we get a big move of God, a great change of leadership, a great moral victory—only to see no true revival, with people’s hearts left unchanged.

Obviously, it’s all the more reason to continue to uplift Jesus in our everyday life, instead of following the early 20th-century Fundamentalists, who forfeited their influence in society to “progressives” who eagerly filled the power vacuum after their humiliation in the Scopes evolution trial.

I still remember the words of Winston Churchill, who was faced with Britain’s invasion by the overwhelming forces of Nazi Germany in 1940. At the end of his speech on the BBC, popularly known for his famous phrase, “As conquer we must, as conquer we shall,” he uttered an ancient prayer that summed up the resilience of the British people:

“Arm yourselves , and be ye men of valor, and stand in readiness for the conflict. For it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altars. As the will of God is in heaven, even so, let Him do.”

And yet, it’s incredible that such a sacrificial spirit could be all but forgotten within several decades, after Britain and America’s incredible victory over the Nazis in WW2. An odd place to find this evidence is in the 1964 Beatles movie A Hard Day’s Night, in a scene when the Fab Four are playfully tormenting a stuffy fellow train passenger. “I fought the war for your sort,” the passenger blurts out. “Bet you’re sorry you won,” Ringo Starr shoots back.

I was told recently about a theory about how America is always 50 years behind whatever Britain does. If the theory holds any water (which it might: the US abolished slavery decades after England did, and conversely, we’re now on course to enslave America with a disastrous nationalized health care system, roughly 60 years after Britain established the National Health Service), we're in for some rough water. For example, the thought of our society being gradually Islamified--as is happening in Britain--should send shivers up our collective spines.

I never want to give up on praying for America to experience true revival through changed hearts (and not just having spiritual goose bumps). Are we on the verge of a move of God on people’s hearts—or just seeing reform without revival?
