Keep your eyes on the BIG prize

I was praying about how awful everything is and asked God how we can keep our spirits up in such dismal times.  He answered by giving me the following:

First, a message … “I didn’t ask you to win; I only asked you to fight.”

Second, a vision. I saw a running race where my runner had lost.  The winner of the race was jumping around, cheering for himself, as my runner finally passed the finish line … except he didn’t stop running.

The scene zoomed out and I realized that my runner wasn’t in a sprint race. He was in a long distance race. It didn’t matter at all that the sprinter had won the short race.

Phil 3

So, yeah, Obama and his creepy cronies are winning the sprint races and it’s discouraging.  But we need to remember that OUR finish line is not of this world.  It’s at the end of all things, when the just in Christ shall rise to everlasting life and the sinners will be sent to hell forever.

I am very comforted by this.

2015_11 19 Bevin toon

The Lexington (Kentucky) Herald-Leader published an editorial cartoon today mocking the Republican governor-elect Matt Bevin’s position against allowing refugees from Syria to settle in Kentucky.

The cartoon, drawn by Joel Pett, shows a cowering Bevin underneath his desk, while an aide points to the framed photos of the four dark-skinned children Bevin and his wife adopted from Ethiopia.

Bevin rightly called the cartoon “a deplorable, overtly racist attack on my children”, and said, “The tone of racial intolerance being struck by the Herald-Leader has no place in Kentucky and won’t be tolerated by our administration.”

Meanwhile, at Lewis & Clark College, students protested to let us know that racism in the media is A Very Bad Thing … unless it’s racism directed at Republicans, in which case, I guess it’s like totally what they deserve, right?

A religion test for refugees is not shameful, it’s the law!

My legal immigrant ancestors came in through Ellis Island, where they and everyone else seeking entrance to the USA was HELD until they could verify their identities, reasons for coming, AND their HEALTH STATUS. Anyone showing any sign of illness was packed back on the boat.

Andrew C. McCarthy explains at the National Review why Obama was 100% wrong when he said “a religion test” was “shameful” and “not American.” The fact is that the law requires refugees satisfy a whole host of requirements, including religion, before being accepted.

As I argued in Faithless Execution, the principal constitutional duty of the chief executive is to execute the laws faithfully. President Obama, by contrast, sees his principal task as imposing his post-American “progressive” preferences, regardless of what the laws mandate.

In his latest harangue against Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and other Americans opposed to his insistence on continuing to import thousands of Muslim refugees from Syria and other parts of the jihad-ravaged Middle East, Obama declaimed:

“When I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which a person who’s fleeing from a war-torn country is admitted … that’s shameful…. That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion.”

Really? Under federal law, the executive branch is expressly required to take religion into account in determining who is granted asylum. Under the provision governing asylum (section 1158 of Title 8, U.S. Code), an alien applying for admission

“must establish that … religion [among other things] … was or will be at least one central reason for persecuting the applicant.”

It has been plain enough for everyone but the most committed socialists and political idolators that this Halfrican prick would set about inflicting more and more pain as his reign of terror nears a close. He steadfastly refuses to accept any responsibility for the complete sham that has been his presidency. He has manifested the stratagems of Cloward-Piven, as CtH has so eloquently pointed out. In seven years there isn’t a single thing that comes to mind he’s done for the good of the entire country. Not even close. He will leave behind a million innocents slaughtered because of his reckless cowardly retreat from the Middle East, throwing away all the blood and treasure that went in to bringing some semblance of order to a region hopelessly mired in a 12th century mentality.

It took many years and ultimately the sacrifice of a heroic Pakistani doctor (who Obama, of course, betrayed and left to the Muslims’ tender mercies after promising safe haven in America) to finally dispose of Bin Laden. Even then, it was President Jarrett who gave the SEALs the ‘go’ order since Barry was busy playing cards with his body man, Reggie Love. He naturally stood up and took all the accolades. Worse, I’m 100% convinced that it was his regime that tipped off the Taliban about the helicopter carrying the team that was shot down in Afghanistan. You’ll never convince me otherwise.

France has a fraction of our intelligence capabilities and their police force is meager. They still managed to dispatch the mastermind of the Paris massacre in a matter of days.

Suspected Mastermind of Paris Massacre Killed in Terror Raid
The man suspected of ringleading last Friday’s Paris attacks that killed 129 people, who bragged that he could always stay one step ahead of Western intelligence, was killed in the police raid north of Paris Wednesday. Investigators also confirmed that his cousin was killed, after she apparently blew herself up.

Abdelhamid Abaaoud, 27, also had been linked to a string of thwarted attacks, including the plot to kill passengers on a Paris-bound high-speed train in August, a plot that three young Americans helped foil. He was identified from skin samples after the Saint-Denis raid, the French prosecutor’s office reported Thursday.

Self-righteous prick isn’t listening

The House is currently working on a bill that would require more stringent review of each possible “refugee” from Syria.

“More” stringent review?! What am I saying? Actually, it’s more accurate to say it will require stringent review of each possible “refugee” from Syria since we’ve pretty much learned that there currently isn’t the infrastructure in place to actually do this “robust vetting” that Obama claims will be done.

The House bill would see to it that “refugees” from Syria and Iraq undergo screening that would include FBI background checks before they are permitted to come here in order to weed out the radical Muslim extremist nut cases who want to destroy the country.

If only we had done this for the 2008 Presidential candidates, things would be completely different today.

Clearly the House of Representatives heard your demands that something be done to prevent what happened in Paris from happening here. Sure, it’s possible that many of them are advancing this bill because they’re terrified that if they don’t, you’ll vote their asses out. But, hey. Whatever gets them to do the right thing, right?

But of course the self-righteous prick isn’t listening to you. He isn’t listening to anyone.

And if what Sharyl Attkisson said in this interview on the Steve Malzberg show is true, Obama has a long history of not listening to anybody who disagrees with him


The Bottomless Ignorance of Barack Obama

Liberals have gushed from the beginning on how brilliant Barack Obama is, and point from time to time to the fact that he was a professor of constitutional law (!) at the University of Chicago, one of the nation’s premier law schools. Of course, if you actually check on what he taught there, it was trendy lefty stuff like a course entitled “Race and the Law” (I have a friend who took this course from Obama) which was devoted exclusively to the creative uses of the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, which to many liberal is the entire constitution. There is no evidence that Obama ever taught, or studied, the structural aspects of the Constitution, as it is obvious that he (following Woodrow Wilson) has no respect for the separation of powers.

Obama Declares Victory On Refugee Fight: ‘We’ll Be Able To Proceed’

After two days of condemning Republicans, President Obama is declaring victory now that it’s clear that Congressional Republicans won’t successfully block thousands of refugees from Syria resettling into the United States.

“My expectation is, after the initial spasm of rhetoric, that people will settle down, take a look at the facts, and we’ll be able to proceed,” Obama said during a press conference with Newly elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
