Wayne Allyn Root on How to Stop aka Obama

Wayne Allyn Root

Martin Luther King “was fascinated by the idea of refusing to cooperate with an evil system.” King believed that ”the Christian doctrine of love operating through the Gandhian method of nonviolence was one of the most potent weapons available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom.”

It is time to adopt MLK’s “doctrine” to defeat Obama. Our nation is upside down. A lie is called the truth. The truth is called intolerant or racist. A Great Depression is a “recovering economy.” Record cold and snow is a sign of global warming. Low gas prices are attributed to the man whose stated goals and policies are to drive energy prices ever higher. The way to “save” the middle class is by taxing them more. Illegal aliens have the same rights as any American-born citizen. And, of course, we can’t use “Muslim” and “terrorist” in the same sentence, even if every terrorist attack is conducted by Muslims.

America’s future is going bad…fast. We have to fight back. We have to act now to take back the country from the evil destroying it.

How bad are things? We have a president who described the attack by a radical Muslim who murdered four Jews in a kosher deli as “random folks shot in a deli”…

We have a president who described twenty-one Coptic Christians beheaded on a beach in Libya by Muslim terrorists because they were Christians as “Egyptian citizens.”

We have an administration that, as ISIS beheads and burns to death prisoners, proposes the solution is finding “jobs for jihadis.”

We have a president who has set up a hotline for illegal aliens to complain about border agents “violating their rights.”

We have a president more concerned about the rights of Muslim terrorists, Gitmo detainees, and illegal aliens than you and me.

We have a president more willing to negotiate with murdering Mullahs in Iran than negotiate with Republicans in Congress.

We have a president who orders the release of tens of thousands of illegal alien felons putting them back on the streets to rob, rape, and murder.

We have a president who orders the IRS to audit honest businessmen…but gives $24,000 checks to illegal aliens.

Thanks to Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, we know we have a president who committed fraud to sell Obamacare and bankrupt the middle class he thinks of as “too stupid to understand.” He told lies including “If you like your insurance, you can keep it.” and “The average middle class consumer’s cost will go down.” All lies, fraud and misrepresentation.
Martin Luther King advocated non- violent resistance to fight evil. Here are four non-violent actions we can take to slow or stop the evil that is destroying America and our children’s future.

The New York City police showed us the first way. Mayor DeBlasio made clear his distaste and disrespect for the police, the same way Obama has made clear his distaste for the military, law enforcement, border agents, business owners and the US Constitution. Just as police stood with their backs to Mayor DeBlasio, concerned citizens and patriots, especially Republican Senators and Congressmen need to turn their backs to Obama wherever he appears.

Martin Luther King knew visual images like this change public opinion. Turning our backs on the individual perpetrating the evil, can paint a picture that independent and “undecided” citizens need to see. They need to know it’s deadly serious and it’s time to stop worrying about political correctness.
GOP political leaders need to stop making believe we don’t have a Muslim sympathizer in the White House, a fraud willing to lie and illegally target, persecute and intimidate his critics. They need to stop making believe he isn’t a criminal willing to violate the US Constitution. They need to stop making believe Obama isn’t consciously implementing a purposeful plan to destroy America by bankrupting taxpayers under a blizzard of taxes, regulations, and debt; showering illegal aliens with amnesty, massive entitlements, free healthcare, and of course, the right to vote without being citizens.

Stand up America. We must all admit the truth and show our anger by standing with our backs to the president. What Obama is doing to America is no different than what DeBlasio is doing to the New York City police. Standing with our back to Obama is a perfect example of Martin Luther King’s “non-violent resistance.”

Second, we must use the courts, filing lawsuit after lawsuit against Obama’s illegal actions. On Monday a federal judge blocked Obama’s amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. We must use the liberal trick of “law-suiting” Obama to death. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! Another perfect example of Martin Luther King’s non-violent resistance.

Third, we must use States Rights to destroy Obama’s plans. Exhibit A- each state, at least those led by GOP Governors, should pass a law making it a crime for noncitizens to attempt to register to vote with a MANDATORY five years in prison, $100,000 fine, and deportation after prison. Then start a P.R. campaign in Spanish and conduct high-profile prosecutions. Democrats will find it very difficult to get illegal volunteers to the voting booth. Another perfect example of Martin Luther King’s non-violent resistance.

Fourth, our GOP Congress must find the courage to impeach Obama. Simple. There are so many obvious and clear charges. Lead with Obama’s use of fraud to pass Obamacare. Charge Jonathan Gruber and force him to give evidence and roll over on Obama to avoid life in prison for being the architect of the first trillion-dollar fraud in world history.

This is how we stop evil in America. Without resorting to violence. Martin Luther King would be proud.

Obama downplays blood-thirsty ISIS but targets right-wing Americans as extremist terrorists

The jihadists who call themselves the Islamic State (formerly ISIS or ISIL) are Islamic fundamentalists who, convinced that the apocalypse is imminent and that they are its agents, are committed to purifying the world in the name of Allah by killing vast numbers of people. (See “Major U.S. magazine breaks with Obama admin by calling ISIS Islamic and apocalyptic“)

But Barack Obama simply refuses to call the Islamic State, who now controls a third of Syria, as either Islamic or a state. Instead, in his speech of Sept. 10, 2014 and since, he calls ISIS jihadists — who have been slaughtering Christians in Iraq, Syria, and most recently beheading 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya — generic “terrorists.”

Incredibly, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf recently proclaimed that America can’t win against the Islamic State “by killing them” and ought instead to focus on addressing their root problem of a poor economy and a lack of job opportunities.

While treating the jihadists with denial and kid gloves, Obama doesn’t hesitate to identify millions of “right wing” Americans as “extremist terrorists,” the latest example being an intelligence assessment by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Evan Perez and Wes Bruer report for CNN, Feb. 20, 2015, that a new intelligence assessment, circulated by the DHS this month, focuses on the “domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists,” who reject government authority, carry out sporadic terror attacks on police, and threaten to attack other government buildings.

Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS.​

Note: The sovereign citizen movement is a loosely affiliated group of Americans who believe they are free people and reject many elements of federal, state and local governance, including, but not limited to, taxation. According to Colorado Prowers County Undersheriff Ron Trowbridge, he was told at a Colorado State Police training session on April 1, 2013, that sovereign citizen groups include Americans who believe the United States was founded on godly principles and “fundamentalist” Christians who take the Bible literally. (See Trail Dust’s “Have you ever heard of a ‘Sovereign Citizen’?“)

The DHS report, produced in coordination with the FBI, defines sovereign citizens as “extremists” who believe they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances such as a traffic stop or being required to obey a court order. The report counts 24 “violent” sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010, including:

  • In 2012, a father and son allegedly engaged in a shootout with police in Louisiana in which two officers were killed and several others wounded. The confrontation began with an officer pulling them over for a traffic violation. The men were sovereign citizen “extremists” who claimed police had no authority over them.
  • In 2013, a man who held anti-government views carried out a shooting attack on three Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees at Los Angeles International Airport, killing one TSA officer.
  • In 2014, a couple killed two police officers and a bystander at a Las Vegas Walmart store.

Other findings in the DHS intelligence assessment include:

  • An expectation that sovereign citizen “violence during 2015 will occur most frequently during routine law enforcement encounters at a suspect’s home, during enforcement stops and at government offices.”
  • “Law enforcement officers will remain the primary target of (sovereign citizen) violence over the next year due to their role in physically enforcing laws and regulations.”

Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center, said that by some estimates, there are as many as 300,000 people involved in some way with sovereign citizen extremism, with a core of perhaps 100,000. Potok says sovereign citizen groups have attracted support because of poor economic conditions. Some groups travel the country pitching their ideology as a way to help homeowners escape foreclosure or get out of debt by simply ignoring the courts and bankruptcy law.

While groups like ISIS and al Qaeda garner the most attention, for many local cops, the danger is closer to home. A survey last year of state and local law enforcement officers listed “sovereign citizen terrorists” as the top domestic terror threat, ahead of foreign Islamists and domestic militia groups. The survey was part of a study produced by the University of Maryland’s National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.

The DHS intelligence assessment coincides with the Obama administration’s convening of a White House summit on fighting “violent extremism” last week.

Penny Starr reports for CNS News, Feb. 19, 2015, that the second day of the summit had opened with a Muslim prayer by an imam, Sheikh Sa’ad Musse Roble of the Minneapolis’ World Peace [sic] Organization, following remarks by Obama administration officials and Democratic members of Congress. No other faiths were represented.

This is not the first time that the DHS identifies “right wing” Americans as “domestic terrorists.

In 2012, a DHS-funded study, Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970-2008 — by the same University of Maryland National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism that conducted the 2014 survey of state and local police officers — characterized Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

In fact, University of Maryland’s National Consortium was launched with the aid of DHS, that is, taxpayers’, funding to the tune of $12 million.

Sunday Devotional: The beginning of Lent

Mark 1:9-13

And it came to pass in those days that
Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee,
and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
And straightway coming up out of the water,
He saw the heavens opened,
and the Spirit like a dove
descending upon Him.
And there came a voice from Heaven,
saying, “Thou Art My Beloved Son,
In Whom I Am Well Pleased.”
And immediately the Spirit
drove Him into the wilderness.
And He was there in the wilderness forty days,
tempted by Satan,
and was with the wild beasts;
and the angels ministered unto Him.

The Devil actually tempted the Second Person of the Triune Godhead!

Imagine the grandiose narcissism, the utter gall that would prompt a creature — a created being — to tempt the Creator Himself.

That is why it is my belief that Narcissism is the First Sin — of the fallen angel named Lucifer, and of Adam and Eve, our first parents. That is also why narcissists are of the devil because their self-worship violates the First Commandment:

I am the Lord your God: you shall not have strange Gods before me.

Lent

Today is the first Sunday of Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, excluding Sundays.

Sundays are excluded from our observance of Lent because Sunday is the day on which Jesus rose from the dead, wherein it is inappropriate to fast and mourn as we must celebrate Jesus’ resurrection, our salvation. That is also the reason why Christians worship on Sunday, instead of Judaism’s Saturday Sabbath.

Lent is 40 days long pursuant to previous traditions set forth in the Holy Scriptures:

  • Moses remained on the Montain of God for 40 days (Exodus 24:18 and 34:28).
  • The prophet Elijah traveled 40 days before he reached the cave where he had his visions (1 Kings 19:8).
  • Nineveh was provided with 40 days to repent (Jonah 3:4).
  • Most importantly, Our Lord Jesus, before going forth in His public ministry, spent 40 days in the wilderness praying and fasting (Mark 1:12-13; Matthew 4:2).

The season of Lent actually began last Wednesday, Ash Wednesday, when Christians receive ashes on our foreheads as a reminder of our mortality: “Dust thou art, and to dust thou shall return.”

Since Jesus prepared himself for his public ministry during these 40 days, Christians imitate Him with prayer and fasting during this time to prepare for Holy Week. In remembrance of how Christ our Lord was tortured, suffered, and died for our sins, we are also asked to make a sacrifice during Lent by surrendering something that gives us pleasure, e.g., eating chocolates, and/or by doing something good that we don’t ordinarily do, e.g., doing a chore for an elderly neighbor.

For Lent, I’m giving up going to Savers, which is like one gigantic yard sale. What are you giving up for Lent?

May the Peace and Love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

Major U.S. magazine breaks with Obama admin by calling ISIS Islamic and apocalyptic

Dr. Eowyn:

This is VERY IMPORTANT, sobering, and downright frightening, so please make time to read it. The West has become so secular and post-modern relativists, we are incredulous about people who genuinely, truly are ideological/religious fanatics. Our politicians and opinion leaders made that mistake with Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and they are doing it again with ISIS or the Islamic State.

Read and listen to what ISIS says! Put simply, ISIS is bat sh*t crazy. Not only are they Islamic, they are fundamentalist in their beliefs. Not only are they fundamentalist Muslims, determined to return the world to the medieval ages and committed to the grotesque barbarism wielded by Mohammad (beheadings, crucifixions, slavery), ISIS is apocalyptic in their beliefs. They are convinced the end times are near, and that the Islamic State is an instrument to bring on the apocalypse.

Please read and forward/disseminate via email & social media. Do it for your lives and those of your loved ones.

God help us.

A Jew laments over his fellow Jews

Paul’s Anguish Over Israel

“I speak the truth in Christ—I am not lying, my conscience confirms it through the Holy Spirit— I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my people, those of my own race, the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption to sonship; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.”
– Romans 9:1-5

Consider Paul’s position. He’s been personally directed by the Lord to take the gospel to the Gentiles, but in his heart, his allegiance has always been to his own people, the Jews. He has received great revelation about the grace of God to all people, but he knows too well the kind of thinking that might block the understanding of his fellow Hebrews. And his heart is broken for them.

There is much more brilliant light in Romans chapter 9, but I would just like to stop here and ponder the heart of this great man of God.
