John Kerry, Iran, and Nukes


(updated 2/26/ 2015 @ 9:01 AM) Have you noticed that the closer Secretary of State John Kerry gets to reaching “an historic deal” with Iran that would give the Islamic Republic and longtime sponsor of State Terrorism an opportunity to  unleash a “nuclear winter” on both Israel and the United States, the more snow lands in Boston where he lives, breaking all previous recorded records of snow levels?.  

Coincidence?

Maybe not.

I know I’m not suppose to mention God or bring the Bible into any discussion about politics  but in this country the first amendment to the US Constitution says I can, so I will.

You see, God has this thing about Israel, so what are you going to do?

He gave the land of Israel, which use to be inhabited by the ancient “Cananites” to the Jews and he doesn’t like it when anyone tries to take any part of “the holy land”and give it to someone else, like…say…those pesky Palestinians.

That is just the way it is. He is a holy,  Sovereign God, and he does what he wants.

And God is also very good at sending celestial warning shots across the bow in the form of natural disasters when any of his created beings, does things that displease him like betraying Israel, or putting pressure on Israel to give away the land that God promised the descendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. (Genesis 12: 1 -3), like say hurricanes, perfect storms, nuclear catastrophes, meteror showers, hailstorms, or the kind of non stop snowstorms and snow hurricanes Boston has enjoyed this winter, or even wars or terrorist attacks on his own people, who won't acknowledge that God gave Israel to the Jews, by some of the most evil, head de-capitating people you can imagine.

Well I know it sounds crazy, but it is something to think about. Don’t you think?

There are several verses in the Bible that promise the land of Israel that was once occupied by several pagan groups of people to the Jews in an everlasting covenant now and into eternity. Although God drove the Jews out of Israel in 70 AD following their rejection of their Messiah, in a world wide dispersion, he began bringing them back in the last century, as foretold in scripture.

Genesis 12:3 promises a blessing to all who bless Israel and a curse to those who curse it.

The United States, who many recent students of Biblical prophecy believe is the end times nation referred to in the Bible as the daughter of Babylon and sometimes just Babylon, has been the only real defender of Israel since 1948, when Israel became a nation again, and has been greatly blessed by God for that, despite changing from that nation that recognized God in its founding documents to one that is turning away from Him in it's government polices, entertainment, and family life, at a speed that is mind boggling to say the least.

During that time America has increased in population growth by 1500%. GDP has grown from $1 Trillion to $15.6 trillion as of 2012.

During the last 20 years, however, starting with President George H W Bush a trend began of pressuring Israel to give up "land for peace"

In Genesis 15:18, God told Israel "To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great rive, the Euphrates", which by the way is a much larger region than the postage stamp size nation it is today. (Developing)

It is very important to understand that God told Israel not to give up or exchange any of Israel's land with other nations. God provides only one way that Israel is to divide the land that he gave to Israel:

"So you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel" (Ezekiel 47:21)

But what about dividing the land or exchanging the land with others.

"They must not sell or exchange any of it. This is the best of the land and must not pass into the other hands, because it is holy to the Lord (Exekiel 48: 14)

Will MBTA's problems kill chances for completion of South Coast Rail Project


Updated on 2/24/2015 @ 12:39 PM

NEW BEDFORD--- As we wait with bated breath for the restoration of Commuter Rail Services  connecting the cities of New Bedford, Fall River, and Taunton with Boston, new concerns about whether our dreams will ever become reality in the aftermath of the recent implosion at the MBTA following the T’s problems with non stop record breaking snowstorms, and a very frustrated commuting public that is unable to depend on them anymore to operate reliably on even the most basic streamlined schedule, so they can get back and forth from work on time and make all their appointments as scheduled..

One wonders if the last thing the MBTA needs, after being forced to shut down service when service was most needed, is a $2 billion rail service to the South Coast that the State survived without for over 60 years amid a political firestorm of blame fixing and back stabbing, much of it coming from our new governor Charlie Baker, who has been pointedly critical of the MBTA and Keolis, the private company that operates the service, which many now believe is in way over their head.

According to an article  in the Standard Times by Steve Urbon entitled “What does MBTA fiasco mean for South Coast Rail, the Governor’s office is denying there has been any change in their plan to get the long  sought controversial and costly project up and running.

In the same article State Rep Bill Strauss D-Mattapoisett, who is House Chairman of the Joint Transportation Committee and New Bedford’s Mayor, Jon Mitchell are optimistic that the MBTA’s problems can be worked out.

Republican State Senator Bruce Tarr, the minority leader in the Senate from Gloucester, on the other hand has filed legislation which will require more accountability and oversight over the MBTA’s presently out of control finances and long range financial plans which may not be encouraging news for supporters of the South Coast Rail Project, which by the way has historically  encountered huge resistance from legislators, as well as tax payers, who live North of Route 128 and have little sympathy for the plight of those who live in this region, at least that is the way it seems to us.

State Senator Mark Montigney, D-New Bedford was reported in the Standard Times article to have said: “At least these people have a computer rail line to complain about “. He was also said to be focused on the complex political realities the MBTA is facing before they can get the improvements it needs moving forward and stated he had had it with endless lip service and broken promises.

“The good news is that in anything going forward on fixing the system, the Boston reps and senators will not have the support without alliances on the outside.”, Montigney said

Additionally I have to wonder if Governor Baker has even read the Corridor Plan which was put forward by the Patrick Administration and understands the real agenda behind it, which appears to have more to do,  in my opinion, with setting up a socialist utopia, conceived by bicycle riding environmental wackos, than with re- establishing long needed train service from the economically depressed South Coast area of the State.

All you have to do is read the opening paragraph of the Corridor Plan Report and you can see that.

So after studying the Corridor Plan Report I have come to the conclusions that this is much, much, more than a simple plan to restore commuter rail service to the region. It is filled with all the “ “sustainable development” and “smart growth” code words associated with the  1992 United Nations Agenda 21 plan not to mention an array of questionable and costly projects listed under the heading of South Coast Rail but nowhere near the railroad tracks or proposed train stations the train will be travelling  through, and that is not counting the $ 42, 000, 000 recently approved by the State for bridge repair.  

One can only wonder what projects will be coming next to encourage commuters to abandon their fossil fuel dependent cars and move next to the tracks stacked and packed like rats the way the architects of the Agenda 21 scheme envisioned from the very beginning in the name of social justice and under the guise of saving the environment, all the while grabbing property unconstitutionally, as they did with the Community Preservation Act (CPA) that New Bedford voters accepted last November.

Well now that we have a Republican Governor I’m sure he’ll get these costs under control. Wait a minute…wasn’t Charlie Baker part of the group that ran huge cost over-runs on the Big Dig fiasco in Boston years ago. And wasn’t he the one, who Jack Spillane of the Standard Times reported was the chief architect of the project during it’s peak construction years, and isn’t he filling his administration with Democrat political operatives associated with other big spending administrations?

Well at least we know if things get our of hand, we know we can count on the MBTA to get the trains running again,

NOT!

The Truth about President Obama: He is not a failure...

When Rush Limbaugh stated that he hoped President Obama failed shortly after he took office, the liberal media went beserk, as well as a few of my liberal friends, but many of us understood exactly what he was saying, and also hoped he would be unsuccessful in implementing his socialist anti-american agenda.

We had listened to his words closely for two years during both his primary and general election campaigns. We had listened to his ideas and opinions in his own narcissistic autobiography, Dreams from my Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. We listened to his own words on the campaign trail promising to make it difficult for people like "Joe the Plummer" and other small business entrepreneurs to succeed through redistribution of income and pandering to environmental extremists, and we listened to hate mongering and  outright racism from his pastor, the Reverent Jerimiah Wright, and so we understood he was set upon a course to change America in a way our founding fathers feared could possibly happen some day, if the wrong people were elected.

Well, unfortunately,  that day is here. I'm not a fatalist, but I think it is time to admit we have lost the culture since Roe vs Wade became the law of the land in 1973 and began transitioning America into a nation the Godly people who began migrating to America in search of religious freedom and liberty back in the 1600's would not recognize.

Killing innocent babies in paganistic sacrifices to a god named "Inconvenience" reminiscent of those sacrificed to the pagan god Bael in the old testament is not what Governor William Bradford and friends had in mind when they began settling this land inhabited by primitive tribes that were no worse, in retrospect,  than those who have murdered 55 million innocent developing babies in their mother's  wombs in an unspeakable bloodbath, or who practice perverted sexual practices that God long ago declared an abomination and make the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah seem like Disneyland.

He had said enough to lead us to believe that he did not understand the concept of American exceptionalism where America is differentiated from most other nations that have existed not because they were better than the others, but because they allowed their citizens to live free from repressive dictatorships and kingdoms that controlled every aspect of their lives.

We also didn't understand how inept he would be in matters of national security where thus far he is not even willing to label Islamic groups who decapitate the heads of Christians and Jews, and   and have expressed particular demonic animus and hatred towards Americans, as radical Islamic terrorists, instead of violent extremists, not associated in any way with those sections of the Koran that advocate the execution of all infidels who refuse to convert to Islam. 

As Bill O’Reilly said on the "O'Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel recently, during his "Talking points memo" segment of the show: .

“On the president’s watch, the following countries have become terrorist safe havens: Syria, Iraq, northern Pakistan, Eastern Nigeria,  Libya, Somalia, Iran, parts of Algeria, and parts of Afganistan. That is quite a resume”, O’Reilly said.
And if that isn't enough we have to be aware that the Islamic Republic of Iran will soon be producing nuclear weapons because our President believes  it is not fair that the United States should be the only country with the capability of turning other countries into uninhabitable nuclear wastelands forever.

I mean...what's fair is fair isn't it?

The following poster was sent to me by a conservative activist friend which sums up Obama's extremely successful tenure as President of the United States, which those of us who were paying attention feared from the very beginning.

It's just too bad we didn't have a media, or a Congress, or a Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, or an army of Christian pastors who shared those fears enough to speak out against evil and shout it from the rooftops, or atleast from their own pulpits.   If they did, I might not be forced to publish this post and then sit around wondering who might be knocking on my door in the middle of the night.

Do you really know what you're getting with South Coast Rail?





A Whale of a City

 Will MBTA’s problems kill chances for completion of South Coast Rail Project?

Successful Opening of "American Sniper" Amid Growing Backlash Against Radical Islamic Jihad

The movie, American Sniper, struck a nerve with movie goers during a big holiday weekend opening of Director Clint Eastwood’s production of the true story about a US Navy SEAL from Texas named Kris Kyle, who became a legendary sniper during his four tours of duty during the Iraq war.

After watching the movie with an open mind, I’m convinced the emotional appeal of the story has a lot to do with the growing backlash taking place in the world and in this country against radical Islamic jihad which Kyle saw firsthand in Iraq, as he prodigiously picked off head decapitating barbarians, who he believed in his heart were evil and would soon be arriving in this country if he didn’t stop them there. I also wanted to see why left wing critics of capitalism, like anti-American movie producer, Michael Moore, who routinely makes millions of dollars in capitalistic ventures are so upset at this story, after it received 6 Academy award nominations including Best Picture and broke all time box office records for the month of January, normally a slow month at the movies, following the Holiday season.

Moore, who says his uncle was killed by a sniper in World War II, tweeted: “We were taught snipers were cowards…will shoot in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse”…triggering a backlash and perhaps even causing more curiosity seekers like myself to flock to movie theaters on a national holiday celebrating the birthday of Martin Luther King, to see what all the hullaballoo was about.

A caller to the Rush Limbaugh show on Monday, whose uncle served as a sniper in the Korean war expressed outrage at Moore’s statement saying: “My father’s first mission was to hunt down an enemy sniper in the field that was waiting on him. That takes a special type of individual to do that. He hunted em down…he made the man make a mistake, and then he eliminated him in the field.” Limbaugh responded by saying: “Exactly. Snipers are defensive positions. Snipers take on the enemy for crying out loud , to enable success of operations. They take out other snipers on the other side. It’s war. To call this murder and to accuse Eastwood and everybody in this movie of celebrating a cold-blooded murder is simply outrageous. I’m sorry you have to defend it, sir.”

And judging by the reaction of theater goers at the AMC Dartmouth Mall 12 in North Dartmouth, MA, where the audience actually broke into spontaneous applause at the film’s conclusion, we can expect to see a growing backlash against those on the left who criticize anyone with the foresight and courage, like the late Kris Kyle, to take up arms against what I believe will soon prove to be the greatest threat to our survival this nation has ever seen…homegrown radical Islamic decapitators.

Duke Ellington at the Piano in Paris

Today is a national holiday celebrating Martin Luther King's Birthday and I can't think of a better day to give politics a rest and post a tribute to a great African American Jazz artist Duke Elington. I became interested in the music of Duke Ellington in the late 60's as a young fledgling jazz pianist and still consider him a very special musician and human being. It's rather long...about 39 minutes but it is worth listening to.

Where was our President?


With the recent bloody massacre in Paris at both the offices of the satirical publication, Charlie Hebdo where 12 people were killed and at a nearby supermarket frequented by French Jews where 4 people were senselessly massacred by Islamic radicals, I only hope that President Obama and his staff of liberal ideologues from the faculty lounge understand the threat we now face from radical Islamists ourselves, right here in the United States.

 But after seeing photos of 40 world leaders marching in solidarity with millions of outraged and grief-striken French citizens at the Paris Unity March, without the leader of the free world present, I'm not overly optimistic.  

I mean …I keep looking at the widely distributed photo posted below, looking in disbelief,  convinced that I must be mistaken. Certainly he must be there someplace.  

World leaders participate in unity march in remembrance of the victims of the Charlie Hebro  attack (Reuters)

 
As arrogant as Obama has always come across to me and most other conservatives, most of us never thought he could be this self absorbed.

And I still don’t. He had to know what he was doing and how it would be perceived by the world. 

Where was the staff member with enough nerve to go to the President and say:

"For crying out loud Mr President. Set the DVR for the games and tell your staff to get Air Force one ready to go" ?

I never thought he would be negligent enough to miss the kind of unique gathering of world leaders that rarely takes place in one's lifetime, except at a funeral of a great world leader, like the one I remember watching on TV in 1963 for President John F Kennedy, where I remember the President of France at the time, the legendary World War II Icon Charles DeGaulle marching front and center in Washington DC with friends and enemies alike.

And so we return the favor by refusing to send a single high level representative to represent us, never mind one of De Gaul’s stature.

But then again, he reportedly was nowhere to be found the night of the Benghazi massacre and had to be pulled in from the golf course to make it back to the White House in time for a photo op and pretend he knew what was going on, the day Osama Bin Laden was captured and killed

Obama is the one who has always had a flare for the dramatic, when he didn’t really deserve to do so, so it's quite unlike him not to show up in Paris when the eyes of the world were watching, as he did when he spoke at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin before he was even President, or when they brought out the Greek columns the night he accepted his nomination for President and set the sound system’s “voice of God echo effect” to maximum.

I’m afraid the argument that they did not have enough time to set up security arrangements simply doesn’t wash. When funerals for anyone occur, there is usually not very much notice given ahead of time. The deceased world leader is rarely capable of giving two weeks notice before he dies suddenly in the middle of the night.
And now that France was hosting one of its own special historical events that I’m sure will be remembered as one of the most important memorial events in their nation’s history and perhaps the entire world, the President of the United States was back home watching the NFL playoffs with his Vice President, probably drinking adult beverages and devouring game day snacks, prepared especially for them by the White House Chef, so his decision not to attend is surprising, to say the least.  


And the liberal media is fit to be tied.

Is it possible the media’s long honeymoon with America’s first black president is finally over? And that they have finally woken up, the way conservatives woke up when we heard  recordings of the hate-filled, bigoted, sermons given by the Reverand Jerimiah Wright, at the church Obama and his family attended for twenty years. Or when we heard Obama apologize for the United States to the Muslim world at the beginning of his Presidency, though it was never clear why. Or when he left the US Ambassador to Libya and 5 American patriots hanging out to dry in Benghazi. Or when he refused to let a group of World War II heroes visit their memorial in Washington during a once in a lifetime trip that would probably be their last opportunity to do so, during the so called government shutdown.   


If that didn’t stop the flow of slobbering, gushing wet kisses coming from the media back then and it didn’t,  why does it appear to be happening now?.

Is it because fellow journalists are the ones who were the victims? That is probably part of it. I don’t really know.

 But I do know he missed a great opportunity to make a clear statement to the Muslim world, especially the 10 percent, who are fundamentalists and sympathize with radical Islamic terrorists, to help send a message that the non-muslim world has had enough and they are no longer going to deny their evil ways and help cover up for them, by looking the other way.  

But he clearly blew it by missing his chance to demonstrate the kind of gravitas and depth of character displayed by great leaders like Winston Churchhill, Ronald Reagan, and John F Kennedy at significant events in history, as seen in the following video that is now going viral across the internet.
