For I am persuaded…

A blogging friend of mine on his private blog recently wrote about the fact that it seems as though politicians need to put on a disguise in order to appeal to the ideology of the voters that they want to attract to their campaign.

In a recent discussion with my 28 yr. old daughter, she told me that she doesn’t like any of the presidential candidates on either side!  However, she hasn’t studied their ideologies or campaigns yet.  I encouraged her to do that.  Sometimes it comes down to choosing the lesser of two evils.

When another celebrity (Arnold S.) ran for governor of California I could not vote for him.  Instead, I voted for Tom McClintock.  Tom didn’t win the election but I have never regretted that particular vote; especially with how horrible Arnold was as governor and the scandals he was involved in.

I have observed over the years that the same need for disguising oneself is often true of judges. We have found that the Supreme Court judges that were nominated and confirmed by Republican presidents in the past have often turned out not to be as conservative as they previously claimed!

Recently I read about a secret meeting between 0zero and Justice Scalia just hours before his death. In another blog thread (need to find it) there was evidence of a “cease and desist” order which threatened against people reporting this or blogging about it!

79% of Americans believe with great certainty that there absolutely was foul play involved! The criminality of this BADministration is so blatantly evil it hurts my heart, mind, and soul to even think about it anymore! What’s more, they don’t even hide their pact with Satan!

WND:
Obama picks side in ‘hail Satan’ abortion fight

Administration to argue on behalf of industry against safety regulations for women

We are certainly in the throes of the end times! The evidence is so clear and all around us! Thank God for Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior for we know Who wins in the end!

God’s written Word, the Bible, and God’s Living Word, Jesus Christ comfort us through all the pain and suffering in this fallen world!  Nothing can touch my spirit because Jesus Christ has promised me (as well as all those born-again in Christ) that He will never leave me or forsake me!


Rom 8:38

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

Rom 8:39

nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Your daughter’s attitude toward politicians is typical of so many of her age; she despises them all, but she hasn’t studied any. This is why potential demagogues like DT can rise so high, so quickly: they seize upon the ignorance and prejudices of their audience and point them in the direction they think they want to go.
    I’m glad you at least told her to learn about them and then decide whether or not they deserve her support.

    ”…We have found that the Supreme Court judges that were nominated and confirmed by Republican presidents in the past have often turned out not to be as conservative as they previously claimed!”
    Ideological purity tests only work in primaries, and not always then. SCOTUS nominees don’t need to jump through those hoops, because by then they’ve amassed a record which shows their leanings. There have been liberal justices who also weren’t as liberal as first believed, but I’ve rarely seen liberals moan about it.
    It is largely believed that GWBush was anointed by the Supreme Court, not elected by the people. I doubt you did any complaining about that.

    I hope you find the blog thread which mentions a ‘cease and desist’ order concerning a meeting between Obama and Scalia shortly before the latter’s death, and I hope they have evidence to support it. Otherwise it will be treated as just another “watercooler report”.

    Regarding Obama’s ‘pact with Satan’…really?

    “That’s right, President Obama’s pro-abortion legal juggernauts will be arguing directly before the Supreme Court to ensure that no regulation whatsoever of the abortion industry be allowed – leaving women and children to suffer at the hands of unregulated, dangerous, money-grubbing abortionists,” Clark wrote.

    That’s wrong. To keep women and children safe from ‘unregulated, dangerous, money-grubbing abortionists’ is why regulations—and the initial Roe v. Wade legislation—was passed in the first place. The “regulations” Texas is trying to pass are so binding that they amount to slow-motion abolition. Clark makes it sound as if the Administration is trying to turn the calendar back to pre-1973 days, when in fact it’s the Texas legislators who want to do that.
    Satan is not named as a co-respondent, and has not been summoned to appear in court. Not that he could, anyway.

    About the ‘cease and desist’ order. Hopefully I will recall the blog and comment thread where I read that. Perhaps a search will help.

    About the ‘pact with Satan.”

    Abortion is the killing of a baby in the womb. Period. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not telling the truth.

    Jesus told us that:

    Jhn 10:10a

    “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.”

    The destruction and killing of a baby in the womb is one of the most egregious types of murder. Men making “laws” that say it’s OK to kill babies in the womb have been blinded by Satan’s ploys.
    .
    One of the Ten Commandments says, Thou shalt not kill (murder).

    Speaking of Satan, I just read a blog post that showed a satanic statuette was in the corridor leading to Scalia’s room at the ranch and a very creepy satanic mask collection. Other weird, out of place, and disturbing images included. Here’s the link:

      I’ll do better than that: hear it for yourself. Then tell me when Obama said anything even remotely comparable to that.

      There have always been cults that misinterpret Scripture. The AlterNet article is just one example.
      That would include the Arminians, the Gnostics, the Roman Catholics, the Calvinists, the Jacobites, the Two-Seed-in-the-Spirit Predestinarian Baptists, the Anglicans, the Latter-Day Saints and every other Christian cult on the planet—except yours, of course. YOU chose the “right” one. Funny how that works.

      I don’t know for sure which story is more accurate.
      Then you should wait for more evidence—or seek it on your own. Yes?

      Evil is evil. No matter who is involved, the evidence is disturbing enough for people to suspect that foul play was involved.
      Okay. So we have a Supreme Court justice who has a ‘secret’ meeting with the President—whom he despised—and is found dead a few hours later in a hunting lodge owned by a supporter of that same president. A lodge, I might add, that contained a ‘a very creepy satanic mask collection’ and ‘other weird, out of place, and disturbing images’, although none are described in detail.
      Hostess, if I were the president and wanted to physically eliminate a political opponent, I wouldn’t do so in such a manner that even a rookie cop could connect the dots. For all anyone knows, Scalia went there to partake in some secret ceremony, and his Dark Masters decided to come for him instead. According to some, people will seek to hide their faces from the Son of God© when he comes back; that might explain the pillow supposedly found over Scalia’s head.
      Speculation means nothing. What have you got?

      Well, why shouldn’t she dislike him? Trump is a living example of the things money can’t buy: manners, taste, class, integrity. He is, in fact, exactly the kind of politician your blog buddy steve was moaning about—except he doesn’t feel any need to “disguise” himself.
      “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” You would have burst a blood vessel if Obama had said that, but you and most conservatives were as silent as the Sphinx when Trump did say that. That one boastful comment is as narcissistic a sentence as I’ve ever heard, and it’s reason enough to never let him into the Executive Office—not even as a guest.

      It could also mean this. Maybe someone was talking to someone else about joining the club (or leaving it). Both are interesting suppositions, but right now that’s all they are. I’ll wait for something more concrete.

      So it had nothing to do with some ‘exclusive news” on the justice’s death; just that one site was blatantly stealing (without acknowledging credit) from some other site.

      According to Conservative Outfitters, 79% of 40,000 people suspect foul play in Justice Scalia’s death. Was this a nationwide poll, or only nationwide among readers of Conservative Outfitters? ‘Cause that’s kind of stacking the deck. 40,000 citizens is enough to fill a fair-sized stadium, but it’s not enough to be a representative sample of ‘the American people’ as claimed. Alex Jones of InfoWars (whom you’ve drawn this from) also claims that the ‘real Illuminati’ were the true cause of Scalia’s demise; you linked to yet another, similar report.
      If there’s more links about Scalia and the Illuminati than about Scalia and Obama, which one do you believe is more likely to be true?

        Obama had his own deceiving, ugly, derogatory, disparaging and debased utterances as well. What’s more, he ranks as the most Anti-American pResident ever in the history of this nation. I thank God that his reign of corruption and deceit will be over soon.

        IMHO, Trump would just be another 0bama with an “R” next to his name (minus the pro-Islam life and rhetoric).

        I don’t know for sure which story is more accurate. However, I find it deeply disturbing that the correct procedures following the death of someone as important as a Supreme Court Justice were not followed.

    I see nothing particularly “satanic” in those photos except for the masks, and I know that in west Texas (which like the rest of the state has a large Mexican population), Día de Muertos, “Day of the Dead”, is observed, generally around the same date as the Catholics’ Day of All Saints (01 November). I’m sure it’s observed in California too, although maybe not in your neighborhood. Look it up.
    The Mayans, however, did have some horrific rituals of their own. Even though their empire never came near to present-day Texas, we have accurate descriptions of their many cases of human sacrifice…although they seem to have no connection to Scalia’s death, unless he was found with his chest laid open and his heart ripped out. Even InfoWars isn’t claiming to know that.

    Then again, the whole thing could just be the political equivalent of “Weekend at Bernie’s”. It’s been two weeks, but some people are still in a panic over it.

    I am not persuaded.

    Typical…

    That’s because it’s worth ignoring. We’ve argued this repeatedly over the past eight years.
    But you wanna talk about that? Okay, let’s talk about that.

    ”Legal Disclaimer: The writers, producers, editors, and publishers of this video are not stating, claiming, or implying that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim, or that Obama himself claimed or admitted to being a Muslim. Rather the writers, producers, editors, and publishers of this video are only examining the evidence surrounding the rumor that Barack Hussein Obama might be a secret Muslim.”

    Thus the trail of road apples begins.
    First, there’s the legal disclaimer. Although they’re not ‘stating, claiming, or implying that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim’, they make this CYA statement because their lawyers told them to. They only claim that ‘Obama might be a secret Muslim.’ Even though the YouTube header itself plainly states “Obama Admits He Is A Muslim”. Both can’t be accurate, so who’s lying here–YouTube, or the producers of this trash?

    Second, ”…Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer…and then went on to say that the Muslim call to prayer was ‘the prettiest sound on earth’.
    Each to his own. To me, the prettiest sound on earth was my own name, on my wife’s lips. But “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” comes a close second, so I suppose that makes me a secret German, huh? Did you attend Mass in Latin as a teenager, and did you feel the same way? Then you must have been a secret Roman!
    It proves only that he liked the sound of the call, not that he ever answered it.
    There’s a number of similar quick cuts through the entire 9+ minutes of this video. I’m no editor myself, but if I were to review those same videos I’m sure there would be a lot that had been taken out of context. Just the sort of thing people like me are often accused of.

    Third, where’s the secret Muslim decoder ring? You were really rolling hot on that one, once upon a time.

    Fourth, centinel2012 asks a great many rhetorical questions without ever answering any of them. He may have been an engineer (he never said he had an engineering degree), but his contempt for higher education is plain. He mentions the armaments we’ve sold to Qatar. Perhaps he didn’t know (as you didn’t know) about the weapons Obama has sold to Israel—even some that the Bush administration denied them!
    He’s entitled to his own opinions, of course. So am I.

    Last of all, this video has ostensibly been in circulation on YouTube since August 2009. One would think that in the intervening years the producers would have:

    found additional footage and circulated it all during the 2012 campaign, when it might have done some good;
    provided copies to, say, Rush Limbaugh, WingNut Daily and others with an anti-Obama POV in order to reach a wider audience;
    contacted the press (mainstream and alternative) as well as the Department of Justice, the US Senate, the FBI, the Secret Service and other parties who might have expressed an interest in this.

    None of the above happened, even though it’s been a political cottage industry these past few years, attempting to prove how anti-American Obama is.
    I think viewer rockembach expressed it perfectly:

    This video is a masterpiece of editing and dickery.

    BTW, is it a crime to be a Muslim and POTUS at the same time? I don’t see it anywhere in the Constitution, nor the U.S. Code. I expect it to become one, though, in the next three years, if a Republican is elected. Even you don’t play the “birfer” card any more: that was your biggest point eight years ago, but nobody is talking about it now. Especially since Trump is hinting that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Alberta) hasn’t been properly vetted either.
    Even if Obama is a Muslim—and I don’t believe that—it is not an obstacle to the presidency. Something having to do with Art. VI in the Constitution, I think.

      The FACT that 0bama stated, “my Muslim faith” in the interview (and had to be corrected by the interviewer) is quite remarkable.

      A true Christian would NEVER make that mistake!
      A true Christian would NEVER call the Koran, “holy.”
      A true Christian would NEVER be a “secret muslim.”

      Think about the biggest reason why a legal disclaimer was placed there.

      You wrote:

      “Even if 0bama is a muslim – and I don’t believe that- it is not an obstacle to the presidency.”

      Maybe so, but if voters knew that he was LYING about his muslim religion (especially just 7 years after 9/11/01), it would probably have prevented him from getting into office in the first place.

        The biggest reason appears to be making themselves libel-proof. After all, the disclaimer only says Obama ‘might be a secret Muslim’. If they actually say he is, they’re expected to prove it, and if they can’t they could face a libel suit.
        But if you know better, then assume I and your audience know nothing, and explain it to us.

        Maybe so, but if voters knew that he was LYING about his muslim religion (especially just 7 years after 9/11/01), it would probably have prevented him from getting into office in the first place.
        Probably not. After all, you often claim that your God is in control. However, God let Obama win, and you’ve spent the past seven-and-a-half years questioning (and trying to overrule) his decision.
        Maybe a true Christian would do that, but, but I’ve heard he doesn’t approve.

    Read the parable of the wheat and the tares. Yes! God certainly knows the true believers from the phonies. And that parable tells us that the true believers will grow amongst the phonies, but at the harvest the tares will be plucked up, bundled, and thrown into the fire. The wheat will be gathered into His barn.

    Jesus Himself informs us that “by their fruits you will know them.” Believers who are born again in Christ and study God’s Word are given the gift of true discernment.

    Legal disclaimers are necessary in this fallen world in order for people to be able to share the truth of a matter without being persecuted or prosecuted for doing so. Free speech is being squelched by the gestapo police of the left who desire to cut off the speech of some because they do not like hearing the truth in moral matters.

    God also allows other evil men (i.e. Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot etc.) to gain offices of power because the people have (or had) been blinded by earthly desires or political ambitions rather than following God’s Word in all matters.

    BTW, thanks for posting my blog post link. I think it reiterates what I have believed regarding why 0zero was re-elected. (That and voter fraud also helped).

    My comment:

    Just think about all of the places (public schools, most colleges and universities, public buildings, media, government, military etc.) where progressive/socialist/communist radicals achieved kicking God out of the culture. Next, add in the liberal apostate churches that kicked Jesus (and Him crucified as the Gospel truth) out of their messages and replaced it with moral relativism that advocates abortion and homosexuality as “normal, natural and desirable”; and we shall realize just how easy it was for them to eliminate Him and His absolute truth, wisdom, knowledge, morals, and values; thus taking out the grace and mercy for salvation through Jesus Christ from the public square.

    Of course, that is what they THINK they have done. God is still in control! However in this life, we reap what we sow.

    Hsa 4:6

    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
    Because you have rejected knowledge,
    I also will reject you from being priest for Me;
    Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
    I also will forget your children.

    Jesus wins in the end!

    Jhn 16:33

    “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will[fn] have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

    And so do the faithful!

    1Jo 5:4

      Is that ‘the biggest reason why a legal disclaimer was placed there’? I say it was simply a legal defense move, a CYA maneuver. If the ‘gestapo police of the left’ wanted to silence them, they’d simply crash their server.
      Also, legal disclaimers and not necessary in this world in order to share ‘the truth’. If they were, the Declaration of Independence would have required lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic! The signers of the DoI knew they would all be hanged as traitors to the Crown if their rebellion failed; these people use a YouTube account and seek to escape the consequences if someone legally challenges them. AFAIK, no one has.

      God also allows other evil men (i.e. Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot etc.) to gain offices of power because the people have (or had) been blinded by earthly desires or political ambitions rather than following God’s Word in all matters.
      He gave us “free will”, but when we do something he doesn’t like, he manipulates us into doing even worse, so the survivors can come back and beg forgiveness. I see.
      So, if you’re so confident that God is in control, why have you sought since 2008 to tell him (and everyone else) that his decision on Obama was a bad one? Did he drop in for some tea and a talk in the spring of ’08 to hear your opinion?
      He’d already gotten Hillary out of the race, just as you’d prayed for. Such a greedy person you are!

      You’re welcome.
      Voter fraud also helped Obama’s predecessor Shrub get elected; funny how all those ‘hanging chads’ which necessitated a recount occurred in a state governed by the Shrub’s brother; that may be the unspoken reason why a $150 million campaign couldn’t save Jeb! from disaster this year.
      People on both sides have long memories.
