Weekly Update from Headquarters
5 February 2016
Greetings from Tyler,
have to have a pretty strong constitution to follow the twists and turns of the
presidential primary elections, and may well have
absorbed enough to satisfy your curiosity.
We've already seen more than plenty from several of the prospects, and
it's not very comforting as we watch the
fabric of our once great nation continue to be torn to shreds by the current
Twenty million or more invaders are already here taking advantage of the United
every conceivable way, and since some
suggesting deportation, the
prevailing doctrines of political correctness have largely frightened most of
the candidates away from specific declarations on how the problem can be
addressed. As far as
the two candidates from the president's party are concerned, the only
problem is how to bestow citizenship and voting rights on the interlopers so
that genuine Americans citizens can foot the bill for their upkeep in
of course continue electing socialist leaders who know better than our
There is still an undercurrent of speculation that something could break out,
whether terrorist attacks or demonstrations and riots that would give
the president an excuse to declare martial law, and suspend Constitutional
rights. Such talk is regarded as
unhinged lunacy pretty much across the board.
it's happened in France, and it looks like
might go on forever.
Right now in
socialist France, police can and do
conduct raids on households without a warrant under what is known as “emergency
rules.” It's been going on since
November 13 Muslim jihadist attacks in Paris that left 130 dead.
They've conducted some 3,200 raids arrested five hundred,
another 500 under house arrest and seized (according to a Reuters report)
weapons, 42 of which are “war grade.”
This is, as you know,
in a country bristling with “gun-control” laws.
French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, is quoted as saying, “The terrorist threat
is here, and here to last.”
We've just learned that
another terrorist plot has been foiled in Germany.
German intelligence reports that ISIS fighters have slipped in with the refugees
they've received over 100 tips trying to alert authorities to their activities.
You may be wondering how
this news is being received by Angela Merkel, who set the whole refugee disaster
in motion and has been defending the refugee invitation ever since.
there even the most remote doubt that
our president would unleash the same catastrophe on America, were it within
his power? This week
the president visited a mosque in the United States for the very first time.
the mosque he chose is one in Baltimore with a history of support for radical
jihadist causes and organizations.
Speaking before a
room of assembled Muslims, he scoffed at criticism over his refusal to equate
terrorists or their attacks with the religion they invoke as inspiration.
It was the
typical scolding of traditional Americans not in the room who can't
understand how the obvious root cause of Islamic terrorist attacks have to be
treated as some unknowable mystery.
Then there was the scene of the president seated at a long dinner table at the
mosque with his hosts. With Obama in
the center of the table,
it looked like some sort of Muslim last supper.
Whether they ate with their bare hands, as the authentic culture would
have it was unclear. The women, fully wrapped and unrecognizable from behind,
eventually turned to reveal their faces, spaced between smarmy males with
crocheted skull caps on their heads.
Someone commented they'd never seen the president look so genuinely happy.
After all, he'd just taken his whole
teleprompter setup to the pulpit of a formerly radical mosque to lecture, not
his Muslim audience,
but the American people that we have a “responsibility to call out those who
insult” the Muslim faith.
that we have a “Christian” president who's all wound up about insults.
Every westerner who has visited the Middle East learned about this
proclivity of Muslim culture. Before
Iranian revolution, before
Imam's of every stripe began preaching the literal practice of mercilessly
killing innocent people going about their innocent business, this wasn't nearly
the problem it has become.
But the whole “insult” factor has become a convenient excuse for Muslim
defenders to justify homicidal insanity.
Now, according to the Obama administration and the various U. S. agencies
it has corrupted,
we dare not “insult” their “faith” or we apparently deserve the backlash of
is not only our
traditional Judeo/Christian beliefs that are under attack.
It is also our history and our culture.
When you see some of these massive political rallies,
with tens of thousands of largely college age Americans cheering for FREE
EVERYTHING, you know that the socialist brainwashing of the past two
generations has taken hold. We can
only hope that God will spare us the indignity
of watching our great and free society go the way of Venezuela, or any
number of other nations that have devolved into abject poverty and anarchy under

But this seems to be what our current leadership wants.
The seeds of tribulation have been sown, with
the deal that makes Iran a fabulously wealthy and
eventually nuclear power with mal-intent, and the importation of millions
from numerous cultures that have no respect for our laws or for human life.
know that God offers protection for those who obey His Laws and seek His Will.
We can only spread that truth and hope that many more will open their
eyes to the times in which we live.
Have a great Sabbath,
