I told you so, again

Obama’s Libya:

I don’t mind one bit saying “I told you so” to all those — particularly journalists — who ignored my objective, fact-supported arguments against Western military and foreign policy in the Middle East and wound up with egg on their face as a result. (I have been trying to revive the nearly-lost scientific method and apply it to journalism, which has become nothing but a series of propaganda mills. So far, there seem to be no takers).

Obama and NATO must bear the responsibility for the fall of Kaddafi, and I have warned that this fall of a stable secular Middle Eastern leader will come back to bite the West hard in the butt.

Now Fox News and others are finally cautiously discussing the fact that the rebels are an unknown quantity and may not be as benign as they were portrayed back when they seemed to have much less chance of winning. Last night it was pointed out by Sean Hannity and Oliver North that they are a mix of tribal representatives and terrorists and their new proposed constitution already calls for sharia law, in stark contrast to Kadaffi’s secular constitution (miss him yet?).

Most telling was the remark: “Obama owns Libya.”

In case you have forgotten our direct military involvement in Libya, in addition to Obama’s repeated calls for Kadaffi (sp Gadhaffi in the linked article) to step down, here is the report on the joint French-American Operation Odyssey Dawn the day after it happened:

http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/news/x617854948/France-U-S-bomb-Libyan-positions

 Back in March, I found no mainstream commentators on the left or right criticizing the West’s role in this operation or in Egypt. In fact, there has been a steady stream of “conservative” criticism against Obama for not going after Kadaffi more resolutely. (The clueless candidates — most recently Bachmann — mostly followed their clueless lead, bleating similar statements). Generally, there is a dearth of substantive criticism of any Western military involvement by left or right, no doubt for political or career reasons (many fear appearing unpatriotic, even though honest and objective commentary would ultimately save Western lives and Western embarrassment), but also due to a serious shortage of brain power. Now that a Marxist is in the White House, mainstream conservatives are finally criticizing our involvement in a Middle East conflict, but mainly because they can pin the fallout on the Left. But none of them mentioned that the regimes in post-Carter Iran, post-Clinton Kosovo, post-Bush Iraq, post-rebellion Egypt and the Ivory Coast, once ruled by secularists, are now in the hands of democratically elected Islamist leaders or mobs who openly persecute and murder Christians wholesale  (see, for example, the 4th link below on the Ivory Coast massacre of Christians presided over by the UN) and do not believe in Israel’s right to exist. (A nation that allows Muslims to live within its boundaries, whereas Muslim nations typically forbid Israelis — or often any Jews — even to visit. How fair and democratic is that?).

By contrast, I (who have nothing to lose, am not being paid for this and answer to no one) was warning repeatedly about the error in our involvement in the Middle East, not just by Democrat presidents, notably Obama, but also by Republicans (BTW, Reagan, who pulled us out of Lebanon, was an exception), and pointing out then-unheeded facts to state my case, reminding, for example, that the local Christian populations were always the ones who paid the biggest price when a stable secular leader was replaced by a mob, which eventually, inevitably, turned into an Islamic-led government with significantly less freedom for the people than under the “cruel dictators” we replaced — as well as vastly less diversity, which, oddly, Western powers prize in their countries. Israel, of course, came closer to the brink of war with each successive “win” and Iran was given a permanent pass by the West, as though these merciless enforcers of brutal Sharia law, who execute countless people for sexual misdeeds and inappropriate clothing, were lily-white defenders of human rights (as we speak, there are 2 Americans jailed in Iran for “spying,” on flimsy evidence). I sent links to each of my articles on this subject to thousands of potential readers, including major news outlets, inclucing to all Fox News personalities. News people typically do not respond, but judging by last night’s commentary by Sean, perhaps they had read some of what I said here:

Look, I don’t mind people calling me crazy. But you journalists who lead the Western world by providing information to decision makers, should know by now that, in the long run, ignoring warnings about the West’s disastrous involvement in the Middle East is going to hurt you a whole lot more than it does the warning party.

Will you help this brother?

…And if you can’t help, then please pray for the safety of Julio and his family.

I had reported previously on Julio Severo, a man of God who almost single-handedly stopped the passage of a legislative bill in Brazil that would have effectively prohibited pastors, or anyone, from preaching the biblical view on homosexuality (for example, as expressed in Romans 1:25-28). Like Herod’s government or the Roman Empire, open persecution and imprisonment of Christians would have been mandated by law.

Julio recently reported to WorldNetDaily that a Brazilian pastor who led a criminal to the Lord and prompted him to give himself up to the police was subsequently arrested for interfering with the traditional religion of voodooism.

In March of 2009, Julio himself was forced to leave his native Brazil because he had opposed the sacred cow of the far left government – homosexualism. Not because of any government ban, but because homosexual activists had threatened to kill and harm him and his family  — just as they have done elsewhere.

Back in 1995, Julio planted a church in Brazil. A year later, Julio, who could not be silent on sin, left the church he had planted for the denomination Heal our Land Evangelical Fellowship, when the church fathers decided to support far left pro-homosexual candidate Lula da Silva, who later became president thanks in large part to the efforts of shameful “Christians” like them.

In Julio’s own words:

In 2002, as a leader of the church I had planted for them, by the authorization of the denomination’s headquarters, all churches of this denomination were sent packets with THOUSANDS of tracts with an evangelical message from evangelical leaders supporting the election of Lula as president. I burned the packet that my local church received.

Also, Bishop Robson Rodovalho, the president of Heal Our Land Evangelical Fellowship, officially supported the election of Lula.

Mainstream churches in the US and Europe are no better than they.  It is nothing less than surrealistic. “Pastors” are no longer content just to be apostate. They now see fit to promote leftwing agendas like open borders and amnesty for lawbreakers, socialism, anti-Israel boycotts, rapprochement with Islam or homosexuality, even ordaining openly homosexual “pastors” or “bishops” and performing same sex marriages.

Jesus knew this was coming when He said:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves” (Mt. 7:15).

So did Paul:

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And do not marvel for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:13-14).

and Peter:

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways” (2 Peter 2:1,2).

Sadly, the most unusual kind of pastor we can encounter in today’s church is a solid biblical Christian who refuses to compromise on any of the principles taught by Christ and the early saints. And yet, the Bible clearly states that these traditional principles are an unalienable part of our faith:

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 2 Thessalonians 2:15

Which brings me to the purpose of today’s message. Just a few days ago, a Christian brother and friend of Julio’s emailed me and told me Julio is again forced to pull up stakes and leave the country that had provided temporary asylum for him. As in most Western countries, there is simply no room at the inn there for Christians who refuse to compromise with sin. To make matters worse, not much safety is promised in the new refuge either, due to cartel activity, and there is no promise of permanent residence status. This brother therefore prevailed upon me to exhort my readers to help Julio as they see fit and as they can afford by going to his site Last Days Watchman Blogspot (http://lastdayswatchman.blogspot.com/) and clicking on the Donate button.

I think you can see that a life may depend on you.

Yet, despite his apparently desperate situation, Julio wrote in his last email that God has chosen to send him to this new refuge and he is going on faith.

God grant me such faith.

Finally, besides financial support, if you or someone known to you has a possibility of securing asylum for Julio in the US or Canada, please let us know. And if you can’t help in any other way, pray for the safety of Julio and his family as they undertake this new voyage into the unknown.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 25:40.

Prime Minister Cameron trapped by his own words

Prime Minister Cameron trapped by his own words

by Don Hank

Late in February, David Cameron held a televised press conference (see video) reporting a number of severe sanctions by his government against the Gadaffi regime, which is considered illegitimate by all European nations and by NATO based on the “use of military force against its own people.”
Cameron said himself in a televised speech:

“We must not tolerate this regime using military force against its own people.” [my emphasis]

He ended his heroic speech by saying to Gadaffi:

“GO NOW.”

Such a brave freedom fighter, that David Cameron!

In reality, rebels reportedly committed atrocities and destroyed public property in Libya, things all rebels do. Should the Gadaffi government sit idly by and watch the country destroyed?
Apparently, European leaders unanimously think so.
It occurred to many thinking people at the time of Cameron’s straighforward speech that such violence might occur in Europe at some point.
Then what would Cameron do?
How could he defend his own people if he took his own advice to Gadaffi and applied it to the UK, refraining from the use of force to stop violence?
Well, now that rebels are doing to Britain just a fraction of what Libyan rebels are doing there, it seems as if the Cameron government is considering doing just what he spanked Gadaffi for doing under vastly more desperate circumstances. Indeed, there are no reports of widespread atrocities by rebels coming out of the UK – only reports of looting and burning.
Yet Cameron, since the mobs have taken over the streets, is sounding tough as usual:

“People should be in no doubt that we will do everything necessary to restore order to Britain’s streets and to make them safe for the law-abiding.”

Everything necessary? You mean, like what Gadaffi did in Libya?
Well, yes, as it turns out.
According to BBC News:

“…[Home Secretary Theresa] May declined to rule out a host of options, including the use of water cannon, military support for the police, or a curfew.” [my emphasis]

For many years, British activists have warned that Cameron – along with everyone else in government – is nothing but a quisling, or puppet of a foreign illegitimate government, namely, the EU, which was founded by a stealth movement that started in the 1920s and was never approved by the European people, only by their “leaders.” (Set aside a half hour for this must-see video on that subject).
Despite Cameron’s (and the EU’s) description of the Gadaffi (and Mubarak) government as illegitimate simply because a group of vociferous rebels opposed them, Cameron’s government and the EU he answers to meet that very same description, and in spades!
A growing number of disenfranchised UK citizens have been longing for the day when the UK is back in their own hands and their nation’s ties with the autocratic EU severed forever.
The general mood in England is that the rebels have gone far enough in ripping apart their nation, and there is talk of vigilante action if the Cameron government continues to make ineffectual speeches while refusing to get really tough with the rioters.
Yet, David Cameron has trapped himself with the above-cited tough words against Gadaffi. Deploying troops on UK streets would make his (and other Western leaders’ including Obama’s) stern warnings to the Libyan leader sound extremely hypocritical. In turn, the EU has trapped itself by importing – against the will of the people — millions of foreign immigrants who are not required in any way to integrate, to accept any aspect of the local culture or way of life, or to even work to support themselves. Crime has risen in proportion to the number of these new immigrants.
In view of the government’s ineffective response, whether or not Cameron eventually employs military force to quell the riots – and he may have no other choice — he need not be surprised if millions of British subjects say to him:

Mr. Cameron, GO NOW

and take your stinking EU with you!
