Opinions

Discrepant thoughts encumbered
With superstitions bound
Occurring in great number
Presumptive speech is found.

Dogmatic words being spoken
With countless hours spent
Books from books the token
Diversities to vent.

Arguments unending
Nothing vital gained
Final truth pretending
Last conclusions feigned.

Viewing this dilemma
For the causes being
Everyone the "expert"
Of what they have not seen.

Biased folk emphatic
Touting "proofs" their own
Ignoring contradictions
Concocting "facts" not known.

The wise sometimes short-sighted
The simplist sometimes right
With errant knowledge blighted
Sense gives way to might.

In humbleness show kindness
With love and grace be true
Conviction without blindness
Divisive words be few.

Fair-minded without libel
We must with one accord
Delve deep into the Bible
Congruent with the Lord

EXTRA:

Political pundit Dick Morris believes that a suit brought by Oklahoma against Obamascare could be what ultimately knocks down the president's healthcare law. "Why didn't anyone else think of it?" Morris wrote in The Hill. "Unlike the suit brought by 26 state attorney generals, this suit does not make a constitutional objection to the Non-Affordable Anti-Care Act. Instead, it uses the language of the law to challenge the elaborate system of subsidies, tax credits, and individual or employer mandates and fines the act has spawned." The suit, filed by Oklahoma's Republican Attorney General Scott Pruitt, was published in the Case Western Reserve School of Law Journal. The article contends that the wording of the Non-Affordable Anti-Care Act allows a subsidy for health insurance only for those who got their coverage through state exchanges rather than the federal exchange. "The IRS has ruled that the language of the statute should be 'interpreted' to extend the subsidies to those enrolled in state or federal exchanges, but that's not what the law says," Morris explained, adding, "Section 1041 of the act, according to their article, 'authorizes premium-assistance tax credits and makes them available only through state-run exchanges.'" It also says tax credits can be given only if the taxpayer has a plan that was enrolled in through an exchange established by the state under section 1311 of the Non-Affordable Anti-Care Act. Jonathan H. Adler and Michael F. Cannon, who did the research, "argue that 'by its express terms, this provision only applies to exchanges 'established by a state' and 'established…under Section 1311,'" Morris pointed out. Morris argued that the IRS and supporters of Obamascare try to "stretch the language to imply a mandate to cover those in federal exchanges." He quoted IRS director Douglas Shulmann's reply to a letter from GOP Congressmen about the issue, in which Shulmann said, "The statute includes language that indicates that individuals are eligible for tax credits whether they are enrolled through a state-based exchange or a federally-facilitated exchange." "Unfortunately for [Barack Obama], the statue implies no such thing," said Morris. "It is not only silent on any subsidies for federal exchange, it is clear that the subsidies were intended to encourage states to set up exchanges." A federal judge seemed to agree when he allowed Pruitt's lawsuit to proceed in August, ruling against the Obama administration. "The Oklahoma suit has survived a motion to dismiss and its standing to bring the suit has been affirmed by the District Court," Morris stated. "Attorney General Pruitt hopes for a judgment later this year and feels the case might reach the Supreme Court by late next year. Obamascare Exchanges Hide Info on Abortion Coverage, Mandatory Abortion Surcharge: With the exchanges of Obamascare activated this month, it has become evident that it is nearly impossible for individuals to try to determine which exchange plans on their state exchange, if any, exclude abortion, said a group of lawmakers at a bipartisan press conference Wednesday. U.S. Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04) unveiled his legislation, H.R. 3279, the “Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act” —cosponsored by 70 other Members of the House—to ensure full disclosure of abortion coverage, requiring prominent and transparent disclosure of abortion coverage for each plan offered on an exchange. The Obama-Reid Gamble The dance we are watching this weekend is a very important moment in modern American history with big implications for how the executive and the legislative branches interact in the future. The House Republicans have staked out a position that they can use their constitutional power of the purse to force the President to negotiate over key issues. Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born foreigner Barack Obama and Senate democrat leader Harry Reid believe they can break the House Republicans and force them to reopen the government and pass a debt ceiling hike with no negotiations and no conditions. Senate Republicans are split between a majority who want any deal that will end the pain and a militant minority who accept the conflict and pain as the price of forcing very large changes. Obscured to some extent by the focus on the partial government shutdown and the anxiety over the debt ceiling is the continuing failure of Obamascare and the endless stories about websites failing, people discovering higher rather than lower prices, people being terminated from their former health insurance policies and left with nothing but dangerous confusion. What is increasingly clear is that heartless-niggar-dictator Obama and tyrant Reid have adopted a calculated strategy of trying to isolate and break the morale of the House Republican leadership. Barack/Barry/Barack Hussein Obama/Soetoro/Obama is faced with the danger that the conservative Republicans will learn how to use the power of the purse to design a plan for the next three years that will force concession after concession from him. He has decided on a bold and very risky strategy of refusing to negotiate as long as the House attempts to use its power of the purse to force concessions. Demoncrats have adopted harsh language to describe House Republicans as terrorists wearing body bombs, hostage takers, and even traitors. The mainstream media has enthusiastically picked up all insults and repeated them endlessly. The intensity of this vilification indicates the Democrats’ strategic desire to break the House Republicans. Historically there have been 17 government shutdowns since 1976. All were settled. All were part of the American system of constitutional government when the legislative and executive branches are in conflict. This is the eighteenth shutdown but the level of hostility and vicious language is far greater than any earlier shutdown. Similarly, debt ceilings have been negotiated with various amendments beginning in 1953 under President Eisenhower. For 60 years, Presidents have accepted that the constitutional give-and-take requires negotiating over debt ceilings. Diatribe Obama is trying a very daring expansion of presidential power effectively taking away from the House its constitutional prerogatives and demanding it give him what he wants on his terms with no amendments and no conditions. This is a cold, calculated strategy. If the House Republicans hang on and actually get concessions they will have set the stage for three more years of forced concessions. If imposter-"president" Obama hangs on and coerces a so-called "clean" continuing resolution and a clean debt ceiling hike actually dirtied with funding Obamascare, he will have set the stage for three years of presidential dominance. It was an indication of Obama's determination that after his Secretary of the Treasury warned that the financial world would collapse next week if we didn’t raise the debt ceiling, he rejected a six week clean increase of the debt ceiling because it did not meet his requirements. A lot is at stake. As the federal government’s partial shutdown, sparked by Senate Democrats’ refusal to discuss budget compromises with Republicans in the House, continues, there’s a word more and more members of Congress are connecting to President Obama: Impeachment. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., declared Tuesday that Obama has “committed impeachable offenses” and warned that America slowly is turning into a dictatorship under his leadership. “We can have an impeachment hearing in the House, and in my mind the president has committed impeachable offenses,” Bachmann told talk show host Rusty Humphries in an interview that was reported by The Hill Wednesday. She described the actions of the administration, including shutting down national parks and preventing veterans from visiting war memorials, as “thuggery” and stated that the American people have had just about enough of it. “I think we could be on the cusp of seeing civil disobedience – I’m not saying I want civil disobedience – but people aren’t going to take the thuggery of this president much longer,” she said. “We see thuggery going on in the White House, we’re not going to take it. We’ve drawn a line in the sand, and we’re telling the president you need to recognize … that you are a co-equal branch of government. You are not a dictator.” Bachmann congratulated tea party activists for putting pressure on their representatives in Congress and urged them to continue raising their voices. “What this is about is whether or not we will hold on to a constitutional republic,” she said. “I want the tea party to know they made a profound difference and what they’re fighting for is to see if we’re actually going to be a constitutional republic or if we’re going to be totally devolved into a dictatorship under somebody like Barack Obama.” More than a dozen members of Congress already have raised the prospect of impeachment. One of the others is Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, who has received 435 copies of the book “Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama From Office” and plans to distribute a copy to every member of the House of Representatives. Stockman told WND that he believes the book contains information that every member of Congress should know, and he believes discussing impeachment should not be forbidden. “Enforcing the Constitution and preserving limitations on executive authority aren’t just mainstream, they’re the law,” Stockman said. Stockman previously told WND that the way Obama was planning to intervene in Syria was not in alignment with the Constitution. “The Constitution and the War Powers Resolution clearly require the president to seek congressional approval before engaging our military in any action other than a national emergency created by an attack on the United States,” Stockman explained. He also criticized the president for flip-flopping from his 2008 campaign position in which he declared that taking America to war without congressional approval was an impeachable offense. He said that there were clear reasons why this sudden change in position took place. “Two reasons, the arrogance of power and Obama’s lack of discipline. It sounds like Obama rushed to state a Syria position before seriously consulting advisers about it,” Stockman stated. In “Impeachable Offenses,” New York Times best-selling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott expose and explain the high crimes and misdemeanors that Obama has committed during his presidency. They reveal how he has fundamentally and unquestionably abused the powers of his office and done serious, sustained and possibly irreversible injury to American society. Among the topics: How Obamacare is not only unconstitutional, but illegally bypasses Congress, infringes on states’ rights, and marks an unprecedented and unauthorized expansion of IRS power. How Obama sidestepped Congress and already has granted largely unreported de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. How the Obama administration recklessly endangered the public by releasing from prison criminal illegal aliens at a rate far beyond what is publicly known. Obama’s personal role in the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks, with new evidence regarding what was transpiring at the U.S. mission prior to the assaults – arguably impeachable activities in and of themselves. Illicit edicts on gun-control actions in addition to the deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-running operation intended, the book shows, to collect fraudulent gun data. The move toward a virtual surveillance regime with “fusion centers” and data mining and drones. Here’s what Stockman said earlier. “There’s a lot to look at and I think, at some point, if the smoking gun leads to the White House, we have to take action,” he said. Read the details of Obama’s actions and how they don’t align with the Constitution, in “Impeachable Offenses,” by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott. Rep. Bill Flores, R-Texas, who was speaking at a recent town hall meeting, also raised the issue. A video of his comments was posted at the Western Center for Journalism. “I’ve looked at the president. I think he’s violated the Constitution. I think he’s violated the Bill of Rights,” he said. He said at some point a decision must be made, and he said, “I think if the House had an impeachment vote it would probably impeach the president.” But he noted the 46 members of the GOP in the U.S. Senate, where an impeached president would be put on trial. Other members of Congress who have discussed the idea include Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla.; Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa; and Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla. “I think he’s breaking the law if he strikes without congressional approval,” Hunter told the Washington Times recently. “And if he proceeds without Congress providing that authority, it should be considered an impeachable offense.” He was addressing Obama’s plan to bomb Syria, a plan that now has changed, with the proposal that Syria would turn over all chemical weapons to the international community and the proposed U.S. strike would not happen. WND also has reported Sen. Coburn’s statement that Obama is “perilously close” to qualifying for impeachment. Speaking at the Muskogee Civic Center in Oklahoma, the senator said, “What you have to do is you have to establish the criteria that would qualify for proceedings against the president, and that’s called impeachment. “That’s not something you take lightly, and you have to use a historical precedent of what that means. I think there’s some intended violation of the law in this administration, but I also think there’s a ton of incompetence, of people who are making decisions.” A constituent then responded, “Even if there is incompetence, the IRS forces me to abide by the law.” Coburn said he agreed. “Those are serious things, but we’re in a serious time,” he said. “I don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to high crimes and misdemeanor, but I think they’re getting perilously close.” Days earlier, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., said it would be a “dream come true” to impeach Obama. Bentivolio told the Birmingham Bloomfield Republican Club Meeting, “You know, if I could write that bill and submit it, it would be a dream come true.” He told constituents: “I feel your pain and I know. I stood 12 feet away from that guy and listened to him, and I couldn’t stand being there. But because he is president I have to respect the office. That’s my job as a congressman. I respect the office.” Bentivolio said that experience with the president caused him to consult with attorneys about what it would take to remove Obama from office. Also interested in Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who responded to questions about impeachment. “It’s a good question,” Cruz responded. “And I’ll tell you the simplest answer: To successfully impeach a president you need the votes in the U.S. Senate.” Republicans would also need the votes in the House, which Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, thinks they have. Farenthold said he is often asked why Congress doesn’t impeach the president. He said he answers, “If we were to impeach [Obama] tomorrow, we would probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it.” But, like Cruz, Farenthold sees the lack of votes in the Senate as a roadblock. The congressman also worries about what would happen if they tried to impeach Obama and failed. He believes the unsuccessful attempt to impeach President Clinton hurt the country. In May, Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., suggested Obama could be impeached over a White House cover-up after the attack in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012. He told listeners of “The Rusty Humphries Show,” “Of all the great cover-ups in history – the Pentagon papers, Iran-Contra, Watergate, all the rest of them – this … is going to go down as most egregious cover-up in American history.” But even with that searing indictment, Inhofe, too, stopped short of calling for impeachment. A lawmaker who has offered tentative support for impeachment is Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who said in May he considers it a possibility. “I’m not willing to take it off the table, but that’s certainly not what we’re striving for,” he told CNN. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., posted a list of reasons on his website in June 2011, before he was elected to office in 2012, explaining why impeachment is proper. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In a terse online statement, the White House has confirmed that Barack Obama has signed into law an update of restrictions around the White House, the vice president’s resident and other locations – a move critics say signals the “end to free speech.” The White House said yesterday Obama “signed into law: H.R. 347, the ‘Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011,’ which makes it a federal crime to enter or remain knowingly in any restricted area of the White House, the vice president’s official residence, or their respective grounds without lawful authority.” The critics say there’s more to the bill than that. John Whitehead, president of the the Rutherford Institute, explained the plan came about as a knee-jerk reaction to a crazed assailant’s attack on U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-Ariz., a year ago. “The bill’s language is so overly broad as to put an end to free speech, political protest and the right to peaceably assembly in all areas where government officials happen to be present,” he wrote. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., said it was something he could not support. “Current law makes it illegal to enter or remain in an area where certain government officials (more particularly, those with Secret Service protection) will be visiting temporarily if and only if the person knows it’s illegal to enter the restricted area but does so anyway,” he said. “The bill expands current law to make it a crime to enter or remain in an area where an official is visiting even if the person does not know it’s illegal to be in that area and has no reason to suspect it’s illegal. “Some government officials may need extraordinary protection to ensure their safety. But criminalizing legitimate First Amendment activity – even if that activity is annoying to those government officials – violates our rights,” he said. The bill states, “Whoever knowingly enters or remains in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so; knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of government business or official functions, engages in disorderly or disruptive conduct in, or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of government business or official functions; knowingly, and with the intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of government business or official functions, obstructs or impedes ingress or egress to or from any restricted building or grounds; or knowingly engages in any act of physical violence against any person or property in any restricted building or grounds; attempts or conspires to do so, shall be punished.” What happens when the government itself refuses to follow the Constitution? Judge Andrew Napolitano explains in “A Nation of Sheep.” Significantly, though, the definition of “restricted buildings” is anywhere someone protected by the Secret Service “will be temporarily visiting.” “A person eating in a diner while a presidential candidate is trying to score political points with the locals could be arrested if government agents determine that he is acting ‘disorderly.’ Mind you, depending on who’s making the assessment, anything can be considered disorderly, including someone exercising his right to free speech by muttering to himself about a government official. And if that person happens to have a pocketknife or nail clippers in his possession (or any other innocuous item that could be interpreted by the police as ‘dangerous’), he could face up to 10 years in prison,” Whitehead warned. “Given that the Secret Service not only protects the president but all past sitting presidents, members of Congress, foreign dignitaries, presidential candidates, and anyone who the president determines needs protection, anywhere these officials happen to be becomes a zone where the First Amendment is effectively off-limits,” he said. At the Examiner, Philadelphia columnist Tim McCown concluded: “Defenders and apologists for mainly Democrats and Obama supporters claim this act is completely innocent and all of us who believe differently have drunk Ron Paul’s Kool-Aid again. But a post on George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley’s blog page notes that the imprecise language, just as in the NDAA, creates risks and can most definitely be seen as a threat to our First Amendment right to Free Speech, Freedom of Assembly, and Freedom to Petition our government. None of that is very comforting in light of the Patriot Act and surveillance of and wire tapping of Americans.” He continued, “Tonight you no longer need to be a conspiracy theorist to have real questions about whether we are becoming a police state.” On Paul’s website was this: “Just when you thought the government couldn’t ruin the First Amendment any further: The House of Representatives approved a bill on Monday that outlaws protests in instances where some government officials are nearby, whether or not you even know it.” Whitehead noted that members of Congress, feeling the wrath of Americans pummeled by rising fuel prices, a tanking economy and unpopular war efforts, “Have been working hard to keep their unhappy constituents at a distance – avoiding town-hall meetings, making minimal public appearances while at home in their districts, only appearing at events in controlled settings where they’re the only ones talking, and if they must interact with constituents, doing so via telephone town meetings or impromptu visits to local businesses where the chances of being accosted by angry voters are greatly minimized. “While the Trespass Bill may have started out with the best of intentions, it has ended up as the government’s declaration of zero tolerance for individuals exercising their First Amendment rights,” he said. “If these types of laws had been in effect during the Civil Rights movement, there would have been no march on Washington. Marty King Jr. and his fellow activists would have been rendered criminals. And King’s call for ‘militant nonviolent resistance’ would have been silenced by police in riot gear,” he said. He also criticized so-called “First Amendment zones” or areas. “Free speech zones have become commonplace at political rallies and the national conventions of both major political parties,” he said. “One of the most infamous free speech zones was erected at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. Not so much a zone of free expression as a cage, it was a space enclosed by chain link fences, Jersey walls, and razor wire. Judge Douglas Woodlock, who toured the free speech cage before the convention, noted, ‘One cannot conceive of other elements put in place to make a space more of an affront to the idea of free expression than the designated demonstration zone.’ “Bubble zones and free speech zones, in essence, destroy the very purpose of the First Amendment, which assures us of the right to peaceably assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievances,” he said. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born foreign [ Refer to the birth-certificate image at http://confrontation.faithweb.com/ and other similar internet sites ] pseudo-"president" Barack Hussein Obama has said that, unless Congress acts to raise the $16.7 trillion limit by next Thursday, the nation will be at risk of default. “Not so,” Moody’s Investors Service said in a memo dated Oct. 7 and circulated on Capitol Hill Wednesday. Moody’s explains hitting the debt limit shouldn’t be confused with default. “We believe the government would continue to pay interest and principal on its debt even in the event that the debt limit is not raised, leaving its creditworthiness intact,’ the memo says. ‘The debt limit restricts government expenditures to the amount of its incoming revenues; it does not prohibit the government from servicing its debt. There is no direct connection between the debt limit (actually the exhaustion of the Treasury’s extraordinary measures to raise funds) and a default.” Jeff says: Well, I hope we’re nearing the end of this fiscal high wire act. My gut tells me that by this time tomorrow the Senate will have passed legislation to fund the government (probably until mid January) and give the Congress more time (likely until February) to negotiate a longer term package on the debt ceiling. It’s not optimal by any means, but given where we are (with the government shutdown and looming debt ceiling), it’s better than the alternative. The good news is that the Budget Control Act (BCA) will remain in place, which has been effective in controlling discretionary spending over the past two years. The bad news is that we still haven’t addressed so-called entitlement, or mandatory spending, which is the main driver of our debt and unfunded liabilities. I hope that when we enter these negotiations early next year. Icorigin adds: Some predictions are conditional, but others are not conditional. Some predictions are not pleasant, nor necessarily what the predictor wants. According to what yours truly presently perceives, Republicans (as a political party) will lose not only the Presidency in the election of 2012, but perhaps even the House also. Of course, there are reasons for that. First of all, feminist-chauvenist, pornographically-mopheaded Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Michelle Bachmann, and even Sarah Palin cannot hold a candle in comparison to feminist-sexist shortcut-hairstyled clownfaces-displaying Rachel Maddow in terms of decent public presentability. Secondly, was it not chauvenistically-deluded and wrongly-presumptive GOP hierarchy who imposed inferior-gender Sarah Palin as VP-candidate running mate with to-feminists-acquiescing John McCain in 2008....and lost....while maybe-Kenyan-born-or-fathered Barack Hussein Obama shrewdly (and in non-admitted accord with either males-in-charge-advocating Qur'an or the Biblical premises of Numbers chapter 30, Ecclesiastes 7:27-28, Isaiah 3:12, Nahum 3:13, First Corinthians 11:1-16 (KJV/KJ21/NKJV - not RSV), First Corinthians 14:33-38, First Timothy 2:12-15, and First Peter 3:7) rejected Hillary Clinton and instead selected superior-gender Joe Biden as his VP running mate...and won? Was it not otherwise-quite-respected big-tenting, moralist-Republican Ronald Reagan who got the first inferior-gender [woman] on the High Court (i.e. Sandra Day O'Connor)...even though Barack Hussein Obama force-fed largely-complacent americans the two female feminists Sotomayor and Kagan sitting for life terms in the U.S. Supreme Court? Obama's network media, directed by savvy Obama-nation operatives, has let concerned Republicans "blow off some steam" in complaining about the huge and growing deficit, and the intolerable forced-health-insurance-purchase and forced-insuring-those-with-preexisting-conditions wrinkles in Pelosi-Reid Obamascare. Besides Obama's media blaming corporations for giving large contributions to republican candidates, the same media blames those corporations for relocating resources overseas and thus depriving American unionistas of high-wage jobs. Much publicity the media is giving to anti-abortion (and to a lesser extent: anti-homosexual) voices generally associated with the present Republican Party will probably result in nothing substantial nor concrete when pro-choice-against-abortion legislators actually attempt in vain and futile failure to bypass the Democrat-controlled Senate and veto pen of Barack Hussein Obama. Barack Hussein Obama will most likely not have to mess that much with compromising republican RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) who subtly or openly but relentlessly declare: "The huge budget deficit and out-of-control spending is FAR more important than [sexual] social issues at this time." Mere lip service will inevitably be given to recently identified-by-pink-concentration-camp-triangles-reminiscent, 'Don't-Ask-Don't-Tell' abolished, now-open-target, diehard homoperverts....who want to pollute, defile, and destroy nationwide heterosexuality-based families.....is easily though rather counter-productively compensated for by Obamination simply adding a "Significant Other" option to federal forms (such as Form 1040) requiring gender specification. Thirdly, concerning foreign policy, has not Barack Hussein Obama [wisely?] avoided especially American-military entanglement with recent Mideast insurrectionist disruptions having occurred in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iran, and thereabouts...which is exactly what "grassroots" Ron Paul and followers, PLUS those of the Constitution Party, PLUS Obama's own democrat anti-war activists want -- which non-admitted antisemites not only applaud withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan (let alone Pakistan, which even the Soviets could not conquer) but are absolutely delighted that Netanyahu-avoiding Obama is not flexing Bush-like muscles in dangerous foreign situations, especially those which would be of survival-assistance benefit to Israel? Fourthly, Obama is quite sympathetic and perhaps more with multi-state vicious, willing-to-strike, eager-to-trespass unionistas (as Rush Limbaugh calls them) on his side. If the governor of Wisconsin cannot get Madison police unionists to enforce curfews and expulsion decrees, would the National Guard (along with federal marshals, Marines, etc.) obey (or instead override) either the silence or suggestions of their Commander-in-Chief, to whom they are obligated to give required allegiance unless The Chief Executive becomes unreasonably and unconstitutionally dictatorial and/or incompetent to rule? Fifthly, the ultimate "dagger in the heart" against a Republican takeover of the White House in the Election of 2012 will be something practically every other high-visibility RINO insists upon, which is to get voters in general to stop their dependency upon government-bestowed-and-depletable Social Security and Medicare, plus Raising the Retirement Age (to 70 and beyond) and initiating Means Testing as to who should and should not get Social Security checks, and how much should be eliminated to supposedly save the sinking ship of America's trillion-plus-dollar deficit .....all of which wrongheaded premises are diametrically opposed to: Leviticus 27:1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 Say to the people of Israel, "When a man makes a special vow of persons to the LORD at your valuation, 3 then your valuation of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary. 4 If the person is a female, your valuation shall be thirty shekels. 5 If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels. 6 If the person is from a month old up to five years old, your valuation shall be for a male five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver. 7 And if the person is sixty years old and upward, then your valuation for a male shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels. 8 And if a man is too poor to pay your valuation, then he shall bring the person before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to the ability of him who vowed the priest shall value him." Certainly, the vast horde of Democrat voters - both elderly and younger wage earners - will soundly reject that when they are in the voting booths for the Election of November 2012! Even more devastating is that many Republican voters will also be adverse to that needless and irresponsible tinkering against Social Security funding so desperately needed and depended upon by impoverished seniors. Social-Security-check monies to seniors who previously paid into such (to varying extents) through FICA deductions from their payroll paychecks are unique benefit-"income," in that such is not taxable, and seniors can save or spend it as they (not agenda-driven bureaucrats and activists) see fit according to their own individual and freedom-based needs, interests, innovative hobbies and inventions, etc. Not being taxable, none of it is involuntarily siphoned off by godless bureaucrats and deviant activists to non-wanted pro-feminist, pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, pro-atheist, pro-evolution, pro-cultic persons or groups -- and thus, not wasted on detrimental boondoggles nor revisionist and satanic antisocial experimentation. GOPers, with their demonic and devilish pie-in-the-sky-by-and-by hallucinations of strike-it-rich gambling grandeur with self-employment schemes and/or ups-then-downs Stock-Market investing involving Madoff-destroyable stocks (of which 'All Principle Is At Risk,' and which are 'Not FDIC Insured'), who promote the heartlessly diabolical idea of depriving needy babyboomers and others of [vital-for-financial-survival] Social-Security checks, are the damnably-accursed ones who will be Divinely held most responsible for unrealistically and insidiously violating: Ecclesiastes 8:7 For he does not know what is to be, for who can tell him how it will be? 10:14 A fool multiplies words, though no man knows what is to be, and who can tell him what will be after him? Ecclesiastes 11:1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. 2 Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you know not what evil may happen on earth. 3 If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves on the earth; and if a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it will lie. 4 He who observes the wind will not plant; and he who regards the clouds will not reap. 5 As you do not know how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a woman with child, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything. 6 In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand; for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good. Haggai 1:6 You have planted much, and harvested little; you eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages earns wages to put them into a bag with holes. Luke 3:14 Soldiers also asked him, "And we, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Rob no one by violence or by false accusation, and be content with your wages." Hebrews 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, "I will never fail you nor reject you." James 4:13 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and get gain"; 14 whereas you do not know about tomorrow. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. 15 Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and we shall do this or that." 16 As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. The influential GOP-associated names I previously mentioned presume that children should not be dependent upon their parents, nor personally care for them in their old age, but turn them over to "Visiting Angels" and other impersonal eldercare/nursing-home imprisoners-in-effect: THAT "get-out-and-earn-your-own-apart-from-parents" heresy certainly does NOT jive with: Leviticus 19:32 "You shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the LORD." Proverbs 16:31 A hoary head is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life. Matthew 15:5 But you say, 'If any one tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is given to God, he need not honor his father.' Mark 7:10 For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die'; 11 but you say, 'If a man tells his father or his mother, What you would have gained from me is Corban' (that is, given to God)... 12 then you no longer allow him to do anything for his father or mother, 13 thus making void the word of God through your tradition which you hand on. And many such things you do." First Timothy 5:8 If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than an disbeliever. ....and the needy-parents-deserting mindless brain farts of such despicably-subversive RINOs is instead an out-of-context, warped and twisted mis-application and mis-appropriation against the following Bible verses: Mark 10:7 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife...." Ephesians 5:31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." First Thessalonians 4:9 But concerning love of the brethren you have no need to have any one write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another; 10 and indeed you do love all the brethren throughout Macedonia. But we exhort you, brethren, to do so more and more, 11 to aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we charged you; 12 so that you may command the respect of outsiders, and be dependent on nobody. "Be dependent upon nobody?" Can THAT ever be twisted to misrepresent what the Author originally intended! Don't depend upon pension-subsidized parents so you don't live long upon the land which the Lord your God gives you, so throw the money-supplying aging parents out with the trash? Presume (not "assume") that we are not interdependent upon police, firefighters, grocery and hardware store plus water and sewer and lights utility providers? It behooves heads-up-their-rectums RINOs to 'wake up and smell the coffee, ' 'Get Real!' and 'Get with the Program!' Who ARE those anti-Social-Security RINOs trying to please, by preaching their false gospel of depriving the poor of crucial Social Security checks so they cannot pay residual monthly bills? If they speak loud and long enough, Obama - who has already withheld Cost-of-Living increases from Social Security checks - might take them up on the idea of dismantling Social Security against his political enemies, overseen and enforced by his Nazi-Mengele-like, rational-health-care, death-panel bureaucrats against more than non-born fetal babes and hospiced seniors! Are senile, sickly, feeble, crippled, handicapped seniors expected to start a thriving corporate business or become rent-and-lease-prices-raising real-estate tycoons to support themselves without dependable monthly Social Security checks? How about those elderly Christians repeatedly discriminated against into perpetual blacklisted-reputation joblessless because of them adhering to anti-feminist-twit-submission, anti-homogay-sensitivity-inclusiveness, and anti-evolutionist-mythology/pseudoscience-blatter fundamentalist-orthodox Scriptural beliefs and practices? Are "don't-become-dependent-upon-FDR/Johnson-legacy-government" seniors supposed to be involuntarily taxed and thus cultically donate to earth-worship whackjob Interior Department and Environmental Protection Agency "Save-A-Whale" and "Protect-a-Polar-Bear" nutcases destabilizing national security by locking out vast areas of drillable-for-oil Alaska land causing America to dangerously remain dependent upon foreign anti-Israel Saudi and Libyan oil suppliers....resulting in the economically-draining inordinate jacking up of gas-pump fuel prices across America...for the sake of a few randomly-deified species which (not "who") would in NO way would be endangered by a few pipelines here and there? Was it not Jesus who stated that humans are worth MUCH more than many sparrows? Priorities among the irrationally insane have to be readjusted! Will all the above quotations from Holy Writ change the mind of talking-mopheads-imposing Hannity, self-confident Ryan, arrogant-naysayer Michael Medved, egocentrically-pontificating Prager, and others, about NOT conveying to the general voting public the horrific wickedness of misnaming Social Security "entitlements" and/or "welfare" -- then emasculating Social Security by proposing to Raise the Retirement Age and cut people's nest egg's short by Means Testing? Isaiah 30:1 "Woe to the rebellious children," says the LORD, "who carry out a plan, but not Mine; and who make a league, but not of My spirit, that they may add sin to sin; 9 For they are a rebellious people, lying sons, sons who will not hear the instruction of the LORD. Isaiah 65:2 I spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, following their own devices. Jeremiah 5:23 But this people has a stubborn and rebellious heart; they have turned aside and gone away. Jeremiah 6:28 They are all stubbornly rebellious, going about with slanders; they are bronze and iron, all of them act corruptly. Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also you can do good who are accustomed to do evil. Ezekiel 2:5 And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that there has been a prophet among them. 6 And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you sit upon scorpions; be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house. 7 And you shall speak my words to them, whether they hear or refuse to hear; for they are a rebellious house. 8 "But you, son of man, hear what I say to you; be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth, and eat what I give you." Ezekiel 3:9 Like adamant harder than flint have I made your forehead; fear them not, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house." 27 But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD'; he that will hear, let him hear; and he that will refuse to hear, let him refuse; for they are a rebellious house. Ezekiel 12:2 "Son of man, you reside in the middle of a rebellious house, who have eyes to see, but see not, who have ears to hear, but hear not. How did Barry Soetoro (a.k.a. "BHO") succeed in winning the Election of 2012? As of this writing, neither the Ryan Republicans nor the Obama/Pelosi/Mendez/Reid/Hoyer/Durbin/Schumer democrats are agreeing on how much of and when Paul Ryan's Debit-Reduction Budget Proposal should be utilized...and so a "government shutdown" is imminent if no resolution is reached. That would mean that some government services funded by the government would be shut down or slowed down, such as the processing of passports, admission to federal museums and monuments, entrance to national parks, delay of checks issues to our military soldiers, and perhaps even the issuing and mailing out of IRS tax refund checks, and a lot more. Such stoppage and slowdown might make purportedly-mandatory and allegedly-crucial government funding to the National Endowment for the Crucifix-in-Urine Arts, Sesame-Street-Big-Bird series of PBS, A.A.R.P., Planned Parentlessness (a.k.a. Planned Promiscuity) so dear to now-thankfully-brain-dead subversive TFK, pre-school-aged Head-Start and Pell-Grant pro-feminist/pro-homogay/pro-evolution/anti-Bible pseudo-"education" indoctrination, dependence on wind-power research (for when winds frequently die down) and solar-cells-power research (useless at night when the Sun doesn't shine)....FAR less vital and important in terms of government waste which can and obviously should be trimmed. But why should Obama/Pelosi/Mendez/Reid/Hoyer/Durbin/Schumer be concerned about that? The old folk are dying off and generally did not vote for Obamination in the last election anyway. Fat-cat demoncrat senators mentioned have their own lavish government-legislator salaries and guaranteed pensions, and are merely amused by the recent media-frenzy publicizing of budget compromise and implementation impasse...because all they have to do is raise the debt ceiling and print more money. Besides, they correctly guess that, if push came to shove, most demoncrats would re-elect BHO rather than have Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann relocate into the Oval Office (as would this webpage author - IF those were the only choices!). Should the American people in general react against government slowdown or shutdown, any one of the following can be done to the main man (i.e. BHO) responsible for it: (1) Hillary "Vince Foster" Clinton can be implored to talk BHO into playing Russian roulette with a loaded Smith-and-Wesson six-shot revolver...with his right (and not left) hand. (2) Biden, Reid, and Boehner can determine that BHO is unfit for command, and initiate impeachment proceedings against BHO. (3) Everyone can let BHO declare National Marshal Law (hopefully not during any San-Andreas-Fault shufflings) and force everyone to do everything his way. Do you believe that the economic stimulus of BHO is working? Suspicious that BHO has done a magnificent job in the past two years since he has been in office doubling the National Debt? Gut feeling has it that Obamination will ultimately engrain and deploy as many parts of the Ryan Budget to their own advantage as they can....while taking all the credit and bestowing it on Barry Soetoro (a.k.a. BHO) but giving none to the GOP. Soetorobama has had two full years to come up with a reasonable cost-cutting budget, but has not done so. He reminds me of his birth-mother Ann Dunham, who acted first and thought later when she married then divorced two different black men when BS/BHO was a boy. Then did what it took to expire with ovarian cancer. Do you believe that unemployment will diminish under BHO? Do you believe that BHO is The One, and are you a "loyal patriotic" worshipper of intellectually-suave-and-dominantly-persuasive but significantly-incompetent BHO? Is there not complete unity in the demoncratic party, with no democrat opposing BHO as a Presidential-candidate contender....while Sarah Palin [God forbid!], Michelle Bachmann [God forbid again!], Mitt Romney, Gingrich, Rubio, Trump, Pawlenty, etc. divisively and expensively waste money fighting it out among themselves? Will the American people be confused with numerous Republican presidential debates among five bickering antagonists repeatedly slandering each other on TV? Will the finally-decided-upon Republican presidential and vice-presidential candidates get their lawn signs and bumper stickers out to America in time before the November Election? Are you happy that BHO selected a couple of chauvenistically-sexist inferior-gender feminists to reign on The High Court? Are you indifferent that BHO lets so-called "non-profit" but actually for-profit AARP divert the meager contributions of poor elderly (who largely, because of their seasoned and old-fashioned common-sense, did not vote for BHO) for nefarious political-action purposes? Are you satisfied that BHO has publicly declared his support for abortion-homicides-committing Planned Parentlessnes (a.k.a. Planned Promiscuity)? Have you been exempted (because of, in effect, bowing before BHO) having obtained waivers for you to bypass the Bamacare Individual Mandate? Do you run a health insurance company and have (because of, in effect, brown-nosing the negroid BHO) obtained Bamacare exemptions to set limitation caps against those new insured claiming "pre-existing conditions" -- without which you would financially be drained dry and go belly up? Are big Bamabanks ready to deviously and/or covertly dole out lottery-winner-like subsidies for those who go to their nearest HHS Bamacare clinic to receive a 666 Bamachip on their foreheads or right hands? Perhaps significant monetary reductions in the costs of Bama-run goods and services await the BHO "faithful" - such as experiencing their gas-pump and vehicle-repair prices cut in half, grocery and housing rental and mortgage payments halved, utility bills greatly discounted, etc.? Bamamedia is ready to seriously puff Nobel-"peace"-prize "conquering-war-hero-against-Egyptian/Libyan-dictators" BHO for the 2012 campaign. Are you going to "cooperate" with black-reparations diversity and inclusiveness to unify with NATO and the United Nations who has gotten control of them...or instead be an "outsider-like renegade?" As of the time of this writing (which is approximately one day before the scheduled Friday Government Shutdown), the Obama As of the time of this writing (which is approximately one day before the scheduled Friday Government Shutdown), the Obama Administration as bullyboy aggressors is in the lamentable process of "playing chicken" against defensive GOP-House leaders and their constituents. Which one will swerve at the last minute to avoid a disasterous collision...and, if both do collide....which vehicle is intrinsically stronger to accrue less damage? The impasse essentially boils down to what the religious right have wanted to "come to a head" for a long time: a referendum-equivalent of whether or not Roe-v-Wade should be maintained or instead overturned. Obama is ordering his democrat Senate and Senate Majority Leader to hold out against GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner and his noble financially-sensible associates, and although some might presume that BHO is the final umpire in the non-resolved dispute, BHO is not so. Instead, the Judeo-Christian Creator God of the Sacred-66-books Judeo-Christian Holy Bible is The Ultimate Referee. Either the LORD supports Planned Parentlessness (a.k.a. Planned Promiscuity)....or in stark contrast, He does not. In other words, either the true and living God supports the so-called "family-planning services" of the weaselword-misnamed Planned "Parenthood" -- which ridiculously-purported "reproductive" "services" in effect are actually family-prevention and family-disrupting "reproductive services" roughly equivalent to the atrocities of genocidally murdering six million Jews by concentration-camp-oven cremation -- or instead He does not. IF the Lord does not support the weaselword-satanspeak criminally-sinful shenanigans of Planned "Parenthood", there will be FAR-reaching consequences against BHO, Harry Reid, Planned "Parenthood", and possibly even who and which political party wins the Election of 2012. IF American voters - in general - detect that the essential one-and-only basic reason for the full-effects-not-yet-fully-experienced looming federal-government-services shutdown (adversely and immediately putting nearly 1,000,000 federal workers and the services they normally provide to millions of Americans for all sorts of things)....is the refusal of demoncrats to sign a government-shutdown-avoiding budget-cut proposal including eradication of federal funding for Planned Promiscuity, political heads will roll at and perhaps even before the Election of 2012. IF the continuous "reproductive family-planning" and "woman's/baby's healthcare" mangling of abortion-victim mothers plus murder against non-born womb babies [study the Greek New-Testament Text for Luke 1:41 and Luke 2:16 as to the exactly-identical word: brephos used for both a PRE-born womb baby and an ALREADY-born mangered baby] by the continuing government funding of Planned-"Parenthood" abortion-homicide agenda is THAT important to Americans at large to retain....well...let's see IF that will be the case, in view of the full extent of the resultant consequences! IF such mangling and murder is NOT that important to fund with government monies, yet Obamination stubbornly holds on to retaining such (against the will of most American voters), I predict that a serious party rift is going to develop between Libyan-war-monguering feminist-sexists-subservient BHO and Reid and his demoncrat abortion-homicide supporters. True, the impact will definitely be completely neutralized if feminist-sexist campaign hierarchy of the GOP makes the same phenomenally-stupid mistake of running Palin or Bachmann for Prez or VP in 2012. But the general voting public - despite desperate attempts to alleviate the damage by BHO-sympathetic network-news media - is VERY likely to so seriously sour against not only hung-up-to-preserve-abortive "Planned Parenthood" BHO but his demoncrat conspirators (Schumer, Pelosi, Hoyer, Durbin, Reid, even Biden) that they and many of their demoncrat party members will have to look for another job in the near future. Remember what happened to democrat Bill Clinton when the Republicans controlled both houses of Congress in the mid-1990s: Bill Clinton was impeached by the House Impeachment Managers, though somehow retained the Presidency. Perhaps BHO presumes that he can follow the same escape path, and get away with it. The blame for a no-paychecks-for-our-military-soldiers government shutdown is squarely placed on both BHO and Harry Reid for insisting that the government HAS to continue to specifically fund Planned "Parenthood" because they not only provide abortion-homicide "services" (if you'll pardon the degradation of that word) with "private" funding (a matter of shady internal bookkeeping manipulations)....but also cloak their abortion-murder deviance with questionably-useful, certainly-NOT-mandatory-for-women's health, cancer-screening mammograms (abusing the teets), blood tests (which, as Senator Kyl pointed out, could be obtained from many other sources other than Planned "Parenthood"), etc. In view of what BHO has said and done so far, is he presently not the prime candidate to be or become "The False Prophet" (a.k.a. The Ultimate Pseudo-Clergy antichrist) spoken of in Revelation chapters 13-20? Remember, Adolf Hitler did not pop on the scene out of nowhere all at once, but was seen ascending to supremacy all along the way. - http://confrontation.faithweb.com Technically, without additional borrowing authority, the federal government could prioritize payments after the debt ceiling hits - but only for a very, very short time. Within weeks, cash flow problems would force some pretty stark and unpalatable choices. The element of uncertainty would spook capital markets and increase the cost of borrowing. Even slightly higher interest rates would increase our debt service payments substantially, exacerbating our budget problems. It's nowhere we want to go. Of course, raising the debt ceiling in perpetuity would have the same cumulative effect as I've just described. That's why using the debt ceiling to force spending cuts is a good, and necessary, move. That's what gave us the Budget Control Act of 2011, which has resulted in two straight years of lower discretionary spending. Previous negotiations over the debt ceiling have yielded other significant budget agreements. Icorigin adds: It behooves everyone to realize (and acknowledge) that Americans did not get Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born Barack Hussein Obama into office (see the birth-certificate image at http://confrontation.faithweb.com) Also, Congress did not vote for Obamascare. Finally, Minnesotans did not vote for Al Franken. Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden’?” First Samuel 15 1 And Samuel said to Saul, “The Lord sent me to anoint you king over his people Israel; now therefore respond to the words of the Lord. 2 Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘I will punish what Am′alek did to Israel in opposing them on the way, when they came up out of Egypt. 3 Now go and smite Am′alek, and completely destroy all that they have; do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’” 4 So Saul summoned the people, and numbered them in Tela′im, two hundred thousand men on foot, and ten thousand men of Judah. 5 And Saul came to the city of Am′alek, and lay in wait in the valley. 6 And Saul said to the Ken′ites, “Go, leave, go down from among the Amal′ekites, lest I destroy you with them; for you showed kindness to all the people of Israel when they came up out of Egypt.” So the Ken′ites left from among the Amal′ekites. 7 And Saul defeated the Amal′ekites, from Hav′ilah as far as Shur, which is east of Egypt. 8 And he took Agag the king of the Amal′ekites alive, and completely destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. 9 But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep and of the oxen and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them; all that was despised and worthless they utterly destroyed. 10 The word of the Lord came to Samuel: 11 “I regret that I have made Saul king; for he has turned back from following me, and has not performed my commandments.” And Samuel was angry; and he cried to the Lord all night. 12 And Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning; and it was told Samuel, “Saul came to Carmel, and hey, he set up a monument for himself and turned, and passed on, and went down to Gilgal.” 13 And Samuel came to Saul, and Saul said to him, “Blessed be you to the Lord; I have performed the commandment of the Lord.” 14 And Samuel said, “What then is this bleating of the sheep in my ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?” 15 Saul said, “They have brought them from the Amal′ekites; for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice to the Lord your God; and the remainder we have completely destroyed.” 16 Then Samuel said to Saul, “Stop! I will tell you what the Lord said to me this night.” And he said to him, “Say on.” 17 And Samuel said, “Though you are little in your own eyes, are you not the head of the tribes of Israel? The Lord anointed you king over Israel. 18 And the Lord sent you on a mission, and said, ‘Go, complete destroy the sinners, the Amal′ekites, and fight against them until they are consumed.’ 19 Why then did you not obey the voice of the Lord? Why did you swoop on the spoil, and do what was evil in the sight of the Lord?” 20 And Saul said to Samuel, “I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, I have gone on the mission on which the Lord sent me, I have brought Agag the king of Am′alek, and I have completely destroyed the Amal′ekites. 21 But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the best of the things devoted to destruction, to sacrifice to the Lord your God in Gilgal.” 22 And Samuel said, “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Hey, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to respond than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He has also rejected you from being king.” 24 And Saul said to Samuel, “I have sinned; for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice. 25 Now therefore, I beg you, pardon my sin, and return with me, that I may worship the Lord.” 26 And Samuel said to Saul, “I will not return with you; for you have rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord has rejected you from being king over Israel.” 27 As Samuel turned to go away, Saul laid hold upon the gown of his robe, and it tore. 28 And Samuel said to him, “The Lord has torn the kingdom of Israel from you this day, and has given it to a neighbor of yours, who is better than you. 29 And also the Glory of Israel will not lie or repent; for He is not a man, that he should repent.” 30 Then he said, “I have sinned; yet honor me now in front of the elders of my people and in front of Israel, and return with me, that I may worship the Lord your God.” 31 So Samuel turned back after Saul; and Saul worshiped the Lord. 32 Then Samuel said, “Bring here to me Agag the king of the Amal′ekites.” And Agag came to him cheerfully. Agag said, “Surely the bitterness of death is past.” 33 And Samuel said, “As your sword has made women childless, so shall your mother be childless among women.” And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the Lord in Gilgal. 34 Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house in Gib′e-ah of Saul. 35 And Samuel did not see Saul again until the day of his death, but Samuel grieved over Saul. And the Lord regretted that he had made Saul king over Israel. First Samuel 28 15 Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” Saul answered, “I am in great distress; for the Philistines are warring against me, and God has turned away from me and answers me no more, either by prophets or by dreams; therefore I have summoned you to tell me what I shall do.” 16 And Samuel said, “Why then do you ask me, since the Lord has turned from you and become your enemy? 17 The Lord has done to you as He spoke by me; for the Lord has torn the kingdom out of your hand, and given it to your neighbor, David. 18 Because you did not obey the voice of the Lord, and did not carry out his fierce wrath against Am′alek, therefore the Lord has done this thing to you this day. 19 Moreover the Lord will give Israel also with you into the hand of the Philistines; and tomorrow you and your sons shall be with me; the Lord will give the army of Israel also into the hand of the Philistines.” Only about half of americans got the anti-Torah apostate-catholic/cultic-islamic liar-in-chief Barack Obama into office, mostly by non-fraudulently voting for him. Also, majority demoncrat Obomanites in both the Reid-controlled Senate and the Pelosi-controlled House of Representatives of the Congress voted for Obamascare between 2008 and 2010. Hopefully, the reader can - by now - understand the statement that "Minnesotans" did not vote for Al Franken. If the dull of mind still do not "get it," here's a little help: Only SOME minnesotans voted for Al Franken instead of Norm Coleman. If the Obama-administration federal government defaults without raising the Debt Ceiling by or around October 17th 2013, for the first time in our nation's history, because Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born foreign-niggar Barack Obama and patsy demoncrat Obomanites insist on funding not-affordable non-workable anti-Medicare Obamascare without first negotiating about That Big Entitlement (Obamascare), Barack/Barry/Barack Hussein Obama/Soetoro/Obama will have clearly and plainly violated an amendment of the United States Constitution and thus obviously and non-arguably treasonously endangering America's financial national security as a traitor against the United States. In that case, both houses of Congress would then have no logical alternative but to immediately call up impeachment legislation against not only Obama himself but (if there was obstruction of justice) maybe also obstructionist Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. If Reid did not comply with consideration of the impeachment legislation, each State (like Scott Walker's Wisconsin) would have to direct their State Police and National Guard (along with deputized anti-Obomanites) under their command to override any federal use of marshals or various pro-Obomanite personnel of the armed forces of the U.S. military. De facto impeachment against Barack Obama and perhaps Harry Reid (and, if necessary, potential accomplice Joe Biden) would then quickly result in the third-in-line John Boehner becoming acting President of the United States and temporary Commander-in-Chief who would promptly oust obstructionists Eric Holder and his attorneys, and thus catastrophic collapse of America would thankfully be prevented in time. Perhaps threat of financial default across America could have some benefits in forcing certain americans to stop spending beyond their means and quit living on credit (whether by credit cards, mortgage or student or car loans, etc.) per the Biblical instruction: Proverbs 22:7 The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. Romans 13:8 Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ John Giese is currently a candidate for one two-year term on Golden Valley MN City Council. Both Chris Miller and Paul Scofield are currently candidates for two four-year terms on Golden Valley MN City Council. Currently, being considered chief candidate for Beast or False Prophet is one multi-languages-fluent apostate-catholic-plus-cultic-islamic [two-horned] U.N./E.U.-combo personage with the name of the contemptible-and-not-constitutionally-qualified-to-be-President Kenyan-born liar-in-chief Barack Hussein Obama (the sum of whose 6+7+5 first and middle and last alphabet-lettered names when calculated adds up to the same total as 6+6+6). Fascinating how even patsy ignorant or fearful members of the "christian?" and certainly political community repeatedly mis-credential masterfully-bloviating rhetoricist Obama or Barack Obama or Barack/Barry/Barack Hussein Obama/Soetoro/Obama with the non-deserved title: "The President." And even government figures such as former House-Speaker Tom Daschle and former-Senator John Edwards and Barack Obama have (like Satan himself blurbilizing and blattering truncated Bible verses in the desert when he tempted Jesus) have defiantly quoted such Scripture in their arrogance as: Isaiah 9:10 "The [9112001] bricks have fallen, but we will build with dressed stones; the sycamores have been cut down, but we will put cedars in their place." . . . instead of: Second Chronicles 7:14 if my people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. It is, on one hand, understandable that pre-Trib rapturists want to avoid being persecuted during a Great Tribulation worse than the Nazi holocaust of the 30s and 40s by being snatched up in a wishful extra fly-by pre-Second-Coming-of-Christ event supposedly fulfilling "the imminent return of Christ" mandate to "be ready for Christ's coming at any moment." But Christ could come to meet us (as we go to Him) in a non-expected moment by us suddenly having our brains blown out by a hidden sniper or dispersed to bloody smithereens by a terrorist bomb blast, or promptly dropping dead with a massive heart attack or stroke. Imminency does not require the bodily return of Jesus, nor should our continual readiness be dependent on some supposed pre-Trib snatch-away Rapture. The proper understanding and interpretation of: Luke 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the Day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31 In that Day, whoever shall be upon the housetop and his goods in the house, let them not come down to take them away. And whoever who is in the field, let them likewise not return back. 32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whoever shall seek to save their life shall lose it, and whosoever shall lose their life shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left." 37 And they answered and said to Him, "Where, Lord?" And He said to them, "Wherever the body is, there will the vultures will be gathered together." . . . is correctly NOT applied to some fairy-tale, cowardly-escapist, take-up-your-cross-and-follow-me/lose-your-life-for-My-sake-despising pre-Trib-Rapture whisking up into the skies before The Trouble begins, but does apply to AFTER the Millennium right before when Heaven and Earth are dissolved in fervent heat immediately after which The King separates the euphemistic righteous "sheep" from the euphemistic wicked "goats." Being that Hitlerian/non-FDR Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born-and-thus-constitutionally-non-qualified imposter-"president" Barack/Barry/Barry Hussein Obama/Soetoro/Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shumer, Dick Durbin, Van Hollen, various other legislators, certain C-Span and MSNBC and other propagandists, plus nationwide Obomanites/Obominites) have been obstructing and continue to obstruct justice as virtual fire-starting anti-government-services arsonists, terrorists, traitors, treasonous, anarchists, and overall anti-Tea-Party pouting and bloviating-brat pigs, perpetuating the shutdown they themselves have caused by insisting that Boehner bring to the House floor a dirty omnibus bill funding the Non-Affordable Non-Working fiasco called Obamascare, and thus are holding the American people hostage by their dangerous and diabolical non-willingness to negotiate and compromise, a few words from Scripture regarding (and not "concerning") acting shadow/replacement-President House-Speaker John Boehner and his shadow cabinet (Eric Cantor, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell, etc.) are of value to consider: Psalm 20:9 Give victory to the king, LORD; answer us when we call. Psalm 21:7 For the king trusts in the LORD; and through the continual love of the Most High he shall not be moved. Psalm 33:16 A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. Psalm 45:1 . . . I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe. Psalm 45:5 Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; the peoples fall under you. Psalm 45:11 and the king will desire your beauty. Since he is your lord, bow to him; Psalm 45:15 With joy and gladness they are led along as they enter the palace of the king. Psalm 61:6 Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations! Psalm 63:11 But the king shall rejoice in God; all who swear by Him shall glory; for the mouths of liars will be stopped. Psalm 72:1 A Psalm of Solomon. Give the king your justice, God, and your righteousness to the royal son! Proverbs 14:28 In a assemblage of people is the glory of a king, but without people a prince is ruined. Proverbs 14:35 A servant who deals wisely has the king's favor, but his wrath falls on one who acts shamefully. Proverbs 16:10 Inspired decisions are on the lips of a king; his mouth does not sin in judgment. Proverbs 16:13 Righteous lips are the delight of a king, and he loves him who speaks what is right. Proverbs 16:14 A king's wrath is a messenger of death, and a wise man will appease it. Proverbs 16:15 In the light of a king's face there is life, and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain. Proverbs 19:12 A king's wrath is like the growling of a lion, but his favor is like dew upon the grass. Proverbs 20:2 The dread wrath of a king is like the growling of a lion; he who provokes him to anger forfeits his life. Proverbs 20:8 A king who sits on the throne of judgment winnows all evil with his eyes. Proverbs 20:28 Loyalty and faithfulness preserve the king, and his throne is upheld by righteousness. Proverbs 21:1 The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He will. Proverbs 22:11 He who loves purity of heart, and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend. Proverbs 24:21 My son, fear the LORD and the king, and do not disobey either of them; Proverbs 25:5 take away the wicked from the presence of the king, and his throne will be established in righteousness. Proverbs 25:6 Do not put yourself forward in the king's presence or stand in the place of the great; Proverbs 29:4 By justice a king gives stability to the land, but one who exacts gifts ruins it. Proverbs 29:14 If a king judges the poor with equity his throne will be established forever. Ecclesiastes 2:12 So I turned to consider wisdom and madness and folly; for what can the man do who comes after the king? Only what he has already done. Ecclesiastes 5:9 But in all, a king is an advantage to a land with cultivated fields. Ecclesiastes 8:2 Keep the king's command, and because of your sacred oath be not dismayed; Ecclesiastes 8:4 For the word of the king is supreme, and who may say to him, "What are you doing?" Ecclesiastes 10:20 Even in your thought, do not curse the king, nor in your bedchamber curse the rich; for a bird of the air will carry your voice, or some winged creature tell the matter. Song of Solomon 7:5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses. Sometimes, a person's worst critics are their best advertisers, particularly if the gripes are groundless. It shows that the accusers are focusing and paying attention to their target, instead of completely ignoring him as if he does not even exist. Such is somewhat the case with Barack's critics, particularly those brave geniuses dissertating on conservative talk radio stations. Durbin and Schumer foolishly want such condemnatory critics silenced with a backdoor Non-Fairness-Doctrine Anti-Conservative-Diversity Anti-Public-Interest Censorship Bill or Act forced through Congress.....clearly a non-Constitutional shenanigan to stifle and suppress free speech and freedom of the press. As long as there is reasonable rationale for conservative talk-show hosts to harp on the questionable rulings and appointment of the President, Medved and Prager and Hewitt and Rush Limbaugh and many more such as Steve Ertelt of lifenews.com should be able to inform the public interest (which the thinking public would and do indeed find interesting) to expound on the issues involved: Proverbs 12:16 The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent man ignores an insult. Prov 11:14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls; but in an abundance of counselors there is safety. Pr 24:6 for by wise guidance you can wage your war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory. Pr 28:26 He who trusts in his own mind is a fool; but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered. Jeremiah 5:3 O LORD, do not thy eyes look for truth? Thou hast smitten them, but they felt no anguish; thou hast consumed them, but they refused to take correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to repent. Zephaniah 3:2 She listens to no voice, she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the LORD, she does not draw near to her God. Zep 3:7 I said, 'Surely she will fear me, she will accept correction; she will not lose sight of all that I have enjoined upon her.' But all the more they were eager to make all their deeds corrupt." 2Timothy 3:16 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness Admittedly, if then when the criticism turns into plots of physical (not merely political) assassination attempts, and the following verse applies: Prov 10:18 He who conceals hatred has lying lips, and he who utters slander is a fool. Exodus 22:28 "You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people. First or Second Peter 2:17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor. Acts 23:4 Those who stood by said, "Would you revile God's high priest?" Will Obama be patient with his God-ordained adversaries?: Matthew 5:11 "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Luke 6:22 "Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of man! 1Peter 2:23 When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he trusted to him who judges justly. 1Peter 3:16 and keep your conscience clear, so that, when you are abused, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. Understandably, when Obama legislates pro-abortion executive orders, and appoints racist and over-reactive, pro-abortion-choice women to his White House cabinet and retains feminist Pelosi as Speaker, there is obviously place and opportunity for well-founded critique and criticism against such murderous and anti-reproductive tyranny. How is he any better than McCain-Palin would have been? So people find constructive debate not simply entertaining, but very useful for the cause of true and genuine justice: Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Pr 16:25 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Pr 18:17 He who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him. In fact, the demeaning deviancy and diabolical motivation behind the restrictive statute that Durbin and cohorts want to impose against conservative talk-show hosts probably is related to such Scripture as: Micah 2:6 "Do not preach" --thus they preach--"one should not preach of such things; disgrace will not overtake us." Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth. 2Timothy 4:3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, 1Thessalonians 2:15 who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and oppose all men 2Timothy 3:8 As Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of corrupt mind and counterfeit faith; Durbin, Schumer and their ilk are in fact wrongly disparaging and reviling the conservative talk-show hosts, which hosts Lord has designated to get His message out to the public interest, and thus show the "true" colors of Durbin and similar subversives: 2Peter 2:10 and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. Bold and wilful, they are not afraid to revile the glorious ones, Jude 1:8 Yet in like manner these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject authority, and revile the glorious ones. Jude 1:10 But these men revile whatever they do not understand, and by those things that they know by instinct as irrational animals do, they are destroyed. It appears that Chuck Schumer and his fellow travelers may have actually precipitated the IRS scandal with another letter threatening legislative action … Hon. Douglas H. Shulman, Commissioner Internal Revenue Service Room 3000 IR 1111 Constitution Avenue, N.W. Dear Commissioner Shulman: We write to ask the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) to immediately change the administrative framework for enforcement of the tax code as it applies to groups designated as “social welfare” organizations. These groups receive tax and other advantages under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code (hereinafter, “IRC” or the “Code”), but some of them also are engaged in a substantial amount of political campaign activity. As you know, we sent a letter last month expressing concerns about the 501(c)(4) issue; an investigation this week by the New York Times has uncovered new, specific problems on how c)4)s conduct business. We wanted to address those new concerns in this letter. IRS regulations have long maintained that political campaign activity by a 501(c)(4) entity must not be the “primary purpose” of the organization. These regulations are intended to implement the statute, which requires that such organizations be operated exclusively for the public welfare. But we think the existing IRS regulations run afoul of the law since they only require social welfare activities to be the 'primary purpose' of a nonprofit when the Code says this must be its 'exclusive' purpose. In recent years, this daylight between the law and the IRS regulations has been exploited by groups devoted chiefly to political election activities who operate behind a facade of charity work. A related concern, raised in a March 7th New York Times article, concerns whether certain nonprofits may be soliciting corporate contributions that are then treated by the company as a business expense eligible for a tax deduction. The Times wrote: “Under current law, there is little to no way to tell whether contributions are being deducted, especially because many of the most political companies are privately held.” This potential abuse distorts the objectives of vital revenue mechanisms and undermines the faith that we ask citizens to place in their electoral system. We propose that the IRS make three administrative changes to curtail these questionable practices and bring IRS tax regulations back into alignment with the letter and spirit intended by those who crafted the Code: First, we urge the IRS to adopt a bright line test in applying its “primary purpose” regulation that is consistent with the Code’s 501(c)(4) exclusivity language. The IRS currently only requires that the purpose of these non-profits be “primarily” related to social welfare activities, without defining what “primarily” means. This standard should be spelled out more fully by the IRS. Some have suggested 51 percent as an appropriate threshold for establishing that a nonprofit is adhering to its mission, but even this number would seem to allow for more political election activity than should be permitted under the law. In the absence of clarity in the administration of section 501(c)(4), organizations are tempted to abuse its vagueness, or worse, to organize under section 501(c)(4) so that they may avail themselves of its advantages even though they are not legitimate social welfare organizations. If the IRS does not adopt a bright line test, or if it adopts one that is inconsistent with the Code’s exclusivity language, then we plan to pursue legislation codifying such a test. Second, such organizations should be further obligated to document in their 990 IRS form the exact percentage of their undertakings dedicated to “social welfare.” Organizations should be required to “show their math” to demonstrate that political election activities and other statutorily limited or prohibited activities do not violate the “primary purpose” regulation. Third, 501(c)(4) organizations should be required to state forthrightly to potential donors what percentage of a donation, if any, may be taken as a business expense deduction. As the New York Times reported in its March 7tharticle, some of these organizations do not currently inform donors whether a contribution is tax deductible as a business expense at all. The IRS should already possess the authority to issue immediate guidance on this matter. We urge the IRS to take these steps immediately to prevent abuse of the tax code by political groups focused on federal election activities. But if the IRS is unable to issue administrative guidance in this area then we plan to introduce legislation to accomplish these important changes. Sincerely, Senators Charles E. Schumer, Michael Bennet, Sheldon Whitehouse, Jeff Merkley, Tom Udall, Jeanne Shaheen and Al Franken Source: Senator Charles E. Schumer Bottom line … It is a no-brainer to understand that the politically-appointed leadership and lower level employees of Administrative Agencies are afraid of Members of Congress who can affect their mission, staffing, and most importantly, their budget. So, one can easily believe that Schumer’s letter could serve to encourage high-level officials to instruct their lower-level employees to create programs, checklists and guidelines that address congressional concerns. Leading to the appearance of hyper-partisanship and wrongdoing. There is little or no doubt in my mind that the IRS crossed a forbidden political and ethical boundary with its program implementation – but, lower level bureaucratic employees do not take these drastic actions without direct or indirect guidance from their superiors. So the blame clearly falls on those pushing for IRS action – e.g. Chuck Schumer, Al Franken, and the other hyper-partisan ideologues in the Obama Administration who were trying to curtail the flow of funds into Republican coffers. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Charles Schumer Voting Record: Voted NO on restricting UN funding for population control policies.

Simply because his cancer-filled mother did not get the insurance to cover the expense for her medical treatment, which probably would not have done any good anyway, the non-constitutionally-qualified imposter "president" is on a satanic crusade to punish all Americans by taking away their stable health-insurance policies and Medicare provisions and replacing them with death-panel-czars-regulated non-affordable and non-workable Obamascare, in senseless retaliatory mindless revenge for the supposed sake of his now-thankfully-deceased racist-rebel mother who did not have enough sense to marry someone of her own skin color, proving herself a wayward bitch by causing her first husband to become a drunk and self-destruct in a car accident, then re-marrying some Indonesian named Soetoro only to faithlessly divorce him, then deceptively attempting to artificially make her son Barack into an American citizen by loophole technicalities in Hawaii. Attrition warfare is a military strategy in which one side attempts to win a war by wearing down its enemy to the point of collapse through continuous losses in personnel and materiel. The war will usually be won by the side with greater such resources. The word attrition comes from the Latin root atterere to rub against, similar to the "grinding down" of the opponent's forces in attrition warfare. Obamination (comprised of Obama and his Senate and other democrats) has become well aware that the good guys nationwide (comprised of John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Icorigin, the American people in general, God, etc.) -- despise the incessant and tricky-worded attempts by Obamanite mediapersons (such as Matthews, O'Donnell, Cooper, Maddow, Axelrod, Trippi, etc.) to brainwash the populace to accept funding for non-affordable non-workable Obamascare, short-circuiting Medicare provisions and present health-plan policies -- do NOT want funding for eventually-to-be-repealed Obamascare (to the rabid disdain of Schumer, Hoyer, Durbin, Pelosi, Reid, Chris Van Hollan, etc.). So, demoncrats and their patsy Obamanite network media are now trying to subtly slide Obamascare funding through without referring to it at all and silently engrained within a vaguely-worded non-detailed Debt-Ceiling End-The-Shutdown Omnibus Budget Bill emanating from the Senate democrat majority. They will not mention the "n-word" nor the "f-word" and now not even the "o-word" (i.e. Obamascare) either. Being that Hitlerian/non-FDR Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born-and-thus-constitutionally-non-qualified imposter-"president" Barack/Barry/Barry Hussein Obama/Soetoro/Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shumer, Dick Durbin, Van Hollen, various other legislators, certain C-Span and MSNBC and other propagandists, plus nationwide Obomanites/Obominites) have been obstructing and continue to obstruct justice as virtual fire-starting anti-government-services arsonists, terrorists, traitors, treasonous, anarchists, and overall anti-Tea-Party pouting and bloviating-brat pigs, perpetuating the shutdown they themselves have caused by insisting that Boehner bring to the House floor a dirty omnibus bill funding the Non-Affordable Non-Working fiasco called Obamascare, and thus are holding the American people hostage by their dangerous and diabolical non-willingness to negotiate and compromise, a few words from Scripture regarding (and not "concerning") acting shadow/replacement-President House-Speaker John Boehner and his shadow cabinet (Eric Cantor, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell, etc.) are of value to consider: Psalm 20:9 Give victory to the king, LORD; answer us when we call.
