Descending into delusional, hysterical despair?

Oval-Office-HillaryDescending into delusional, hysterical despair?

By Mario Murillo

Hillary Clinton is still laughing.  Now she claims that the FBI, and the Intelligence Community (IC) is working with Republican Senators to bring her down.

No rational campaign adviser would allow a candidate for President to say something this insane.   Is she saying this out of total desperation and delusion?  She continues to laugh this off, even now that it is a proven fact that she is mishandled the very highest form of classified information.

(As strange as it seems…there is a slight chance that Hillary may not be indicted.  Obama may spare her for two reasons:  1. she is the third term of Obama. A Republican president would most certainly wipe out all of Obama’s executive orders and allow Obamacare to die under its own weight.  He simply does not want to lose his legacy.  2.  He has a low opinion of voters and believes that she and he can survive the scandal.)

Nevertheless, with each day that passes indictment seems inevitable.  An insider said, “A decision not to make a criminal referral when the nation’s beyond-top-secret intelligence has been exposed would discredit the FBI as a politicized agency.  Given the personal history of James Comey and the 150 special agents reportedly involved in the investigation, I would wager a substantial sum that a criminal referral will result.”

CIA

Let’s get back to her claim that the Intelligence Community is part of a right wing conspiracy.  Do you realize who the Intelligence Community is?

The IC consists of 17 members (also called elements), most of which are offices or bureaus within federal executive departments.[7] The IC is led by the Director of National Intelligence.

All of these agencies are out to get her??   If she is elected, how is she going to work with these agencies after such a hare-brained accusation?  

CHARLES-KRAUTHAMMER-facebook

It is the Inspector General (IG) of Central Intelligence that concluded Hillary’s emails were above top secret.  Even after this, Hillary accused the IG of being part of the right wing conspiracy.

Small wonder that Charles Krauthammer said this “So the IG is part of a vast right-wing conspiracy!  And inverting logic, the ultra-secret contents weren’t classified because they weren’t marked as such.  Ahem, emails are marked because they are secret; they are not secret because they are marked.  Clinton’s outright initial denial that her server contained classified information is now a joke.

It is hard to overstate the significance of the latest revelations about the national security catastrophe caused by Hillary Clinton’s private email server.  The nation’s highest-level secrets were kept on an unsecure server that is believed to be have been hacked by multiple overseas parties.

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign Wednesday accused the intelligence community’s top oversight official of conspiring with Republicans in the Senate to leak sensitive information about her personal e-mail server. That’s a risky move, considering that it has produced no hard evidence of a conspiracy and the accused parties are denying it.”

For Hillary Clinton it has been a long, long, road filled with scandals that she has skillfully dodged.  This sure looks like the end of the road.  Unless of course—the White House refuses to indict Hillary and—America is willing to accept a tyranny that is worse than Barack Obama.

Young Hispanics are turning sharply against President Obama. Millennials do not trust either party

Millennials Bolt Obama for GOP in Midterms

Long term, the future American electorate isn’t sold on either party.

(Harvard Model Congress)

October 29, 2014 In a stunning turnaround, likely voters in the so-called millennial generation prefer a Republican-led Congress after next week’s elections, and young Hispanics are turning sharply against President Obama.

A new national poll of 18-to-29-year-olds by Harvard’s Institute of Politics shows that young Americans are leaving the new Democratic coalition that twice elected Obama. The news is little better for the GOP: These voters, who more than any other voting bloc represent the future of the American electorate, generally hold Republicans in the lowest regard.

The long-view IOP findings suggest that neither party is poised to win the largest generation in U.S. history—a pragmatic, demanding, relatively nonideological electorate raised in an age of terrorism, war, and government dysfunction.

“Millennials could be a critical swing vote,” said IOP Director Maggie Williams, projecting the latest results on future elections. “Candidates for office: Ignore millennial voters at your peril.” Williams is a Democrat and a former adviser to Hillary Clinton.

In the short term, the news is worse for Democrats than Republicans.

  • Millennials who told the IOP they will “definitely be voting” Tuesday favored Republicans over Democrats, 51 percent to 47 percent. That is a reversal of September 2010 results, when the IOP found Democrats favored over Republicans among young likely voters, 55 percent to 43 percent.
  • Obama’s job-approval rating among millennials decreased from 47 percent in April to 43 percent, his second-lowest rating in the IOP surveys. Among young Americans most likely to vote, his job-approval rating is just 42 percent.
  • Obama’s job approval is below 40 percent on several issues, including the economy, health care, the federal budget deficit, and foreign policy. Nearly six of 10 young Americans disapprove of Obamacare.
  • Among the one in four millennial voters who say they definitely will vote Tuesday, Republican-leaning constituencies are significantly more enthusiastic about the election than Democrats.
  • Just 49 percent of young Hispanics approve of Obama’s job performance, the lowest since IOP began tracking in 2009. That’s a big drop from six months ago, when his rating among young Hispanics was 60 percent, and five years ago, when 81 percent of Hispanic millennials approved of Obama’s performance. Only 17 percent of Hispanic youth plan to vote Tuesday, far smaller than the non-Hispanic percentages and likely a reflection of frustration over stalled immigration reform.

Disclosure: I’m a member of the IOP’s senior advisory committee, a position that gives me an appreciation for the 26 millennial surveys produced since 2000. The latest KnowledgePanel survey, conducted with the Government and Academic research team of GfK, involved 2,029 18-to-29-year-old U.S. citizens between Sept. 26 and Oct. 9.

John Della Volpe, director of the IOP surveys, said the sweep of the work convinces him that Democrats and Republicans are losing the next generation. “Both parties should reintroduce themselves to young voters, empower them, and seek their participation in the upcoming 2016 campaign and beyond,” he said.

For instance, millennials hate government gridlock. Asked on “whom do you place the most blame regarding the political gridlock in Washington,” a whopping 56 percent said, “All of them.”

Congressional Republicans were blamed by 22 percent, compared with 13 percent who blamed Obama and just 5 percent who blamed Democrats in Congress.

While the GOP holds the upper hand Tuesday among likely young voters, millennials overall are more inclined to approve of Democrats in Congress than Republicans, 35 percent to 23 percent.

Less than 10 percent of millennials identify themselves as tea-party supporters. Millennials narrowly favor Democrats over Republicans to handle the economy, immigration, foreign policy, race relations, and even health care.

Young voters traditionally split between the two major parties, as they did in 2000 and 2002. Two wars and Hurricane Katrina under an unpopular President George W. Bush drove millennials to Obama’s promise of change and can-do bipartisanship. He didn’t live up to his hype, and by2013, many young voters were walking away from Obama and Democrats amid revelations about the administration’s domestic spying programs and the botched launch of Obamacare.

God can and must do it again!

God can and must do it again!  By Mario Murillo

Here is a historical fact that should deeply sober every American Christian: Israel lost the knowledge of God in one generation.

Judges 2:10,11 says, “When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel. Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and served the Baals.”

How was this possible in Israel?  Israel had the most supernatural origin of any nation in history.  They were slaves extracted from the mightiest nation on earth.  They were led through an ocean, guided by a pillar of fire, fed by heaven, and transformed into a mighty nation.

God even took special precautions to protect future generations: “Joshua 4:20 “And those twelve stones, which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up at Gilgal. 21 And he said to the people of Israel, “When your children ask their fathers in times to come, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 22 then you shall let your children know, ‘Israel passed over this Jordan on dry ground.’ 23 For the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan for you until you passed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red Sea, which he dried up for us until we passed over.”

And yet, they lost it all in one generation.  How did they lose it?  They lost it through the negligence of one generation and the work of the master of lies Satan.

Since the Cross, Satan has been a crippled creature who relies on lies and deception.  Through the ages, he has honed his skills at fooling the masses.  Jesus predicted that the devil’s skills would reach an apex in the last days: “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.”- Matthew 24: 24,25. 

Satan is a better liar today than he has ever been and he is focusing his lies and deception on the United States. He has put a demonic arrogance on our government. That is why I am using this letter to tell you something urgent.  Sources I trust have warned me that our government is about to do something that can cause widespread fear and rage.

They believe that this new generation will accept their brave new Godless America.  The tragedy is that they are right to believe this because the disaster of Judges 2:10-11 is being repeated in sickening detail.

Cashing in on his influence in media, government and education, Satan has virtually erased the memory, the legacy and the testimony of Christ in the American soul.  Deny it, and you simply become part of the problem.  Ignore it, and you do so at the peril of those you love and yourself.

Consider these facts:

Dr. Benjamin Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital “Let’s say somebody were [in the White House] and they wanted to destroy this nation, I would create division among the people, encourage a culture of ridicule for basic morality and the principles that made and sustained the country, undermine the financial stability of the nation, and weaken and destroy the military. It appears coincidentally that those are the very things that are happening right now.”

Here is a chilling report.  It is not from some kook fringe magazine but from Forbes Magazine:
Ralph Benko Forbes Magazine March 11, 2013: “The Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.  As reported elsewhere, much of this purchase order is for rounds forbidden by international law for use in war, along with a frightening amount specialized for snipers.  Also reported elsewhere, at the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month.  1.6 billion Rounds, therefore, would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years…In America!

Add to this perplexingly that the Department of Homeland Security is now is showing off its acquisition of heavily armored personnel carriers, repatriated from the Iraqi and Afghani theaters of operation.  As observed by “paramilblogger” Ken Jorgustin last September:

‘These MRAP’s ARE BEING SEEN ON U.S. STREETS all across America by verified observers with photos, videos, and descriptions.

swat

‘Regardless of the exact number of MRAP’s being delivered to DHS (and evidently some to POLICE via DHS, as has been observed), why would they need such over-the-top vehicles on U.S. streets to withstand IEDs, mine blasts, and 50 caliber hits to bullet-proof glass? In a war zone… yes, definitely. Let’s protect our men and women…on the streets of America? “Seriously, why would DHS need such a vehicle on our streets?”

At no other time in history would Americans be so complacent, compliant and dull about the government arming themselves to the teeth against its own people while trying to confiscate the legal weapons of law abiding citizens.  It is Satan pure and simple!

Preachers are being fooled!  At a time when every alarm should be going off in pastors many are drowsy, disheartened and afraid to speak out and behaving like drunk pilots.  When the Body of Christ should be opposing Washington as one voice we are totally divided.

Christians are being fooled in all directions.  Some Christians are so motivated by race that they can overlook everything this administration is doing including the zealous destruction of the unborn and marriage.  Others Christians are tossing out the Bible to binge on emotional experiences and false doctrine.   In America’s darkest hour Satan has divided us, deceived us and distracted us.

Here is the great warning of this letter:  Washington’s war on our faith will soon snowball and force a decision by every child of God.  You must either be for Christ or for Satan’s emerging socialist state. This letter is trying to help you make the right moves against this storm!  Call me a kook; call me a liar but there is something that no one can deny:  Nothing I have said in this letter is either a lie or an exaggeration.

flag blog copy

Revival, true God sent revival is our only hope now but it is a great hope!   Fire from heaven can reverse the course of this generation.  However, before this letter can offer you that great hope there is one last lie that it must expose.

Satan has saved his very best lie for God’s remnant. Remember that Jesus said “to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”  Satan is plying a special lie on the elect of God!  Satan is even imitating the voice of the Holy Spirit to tell this lie!  He is doing this because this remnant is the final firewall stopping his agenda for America.

In a nutshell, here is the deceiving message from the devil to the righteous core:  “The best days of the Church are behind you.  God must judge America to allow the return of Christ. God cannot do it again because He does not want to. The bottom line of this lie is the times are too hard, the task is too great and we are too small.”

GodBlessAmerica

This lie carries emotions of inferiority, telling us we are not as favored as past generations! He can even turn our history against us so that miracles of bygone days that should inspire instead task us and make us feel inferior.

Men and women of God have felt this inferiority before!  Psalm 44: 1-3 says,  “We have heard with our ears, O God, Our fathers have told us, The deeds You did in their days, In days of old: 2 You drove out the nations with Your hand, But them You planted; You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out. 3 For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, Because You favored them.”  “We just don’t have Your favor like they did.”

He wants your prayers to feel futile.  He wants your efforts to feel like vanity.   He even wants to make you feel like a fool because you have not thrown in with the compromised and counterfeit Christians.  You have been tempted to say like David, “Surely I have cleansed my heart in vain, And washed my hands in innocence. For all day long I have been plagued, And chastened every morning.” –Psalm 73:13,14.

The Prophet Habakkuk had to overcome this very weakness.  He was crushed by the darkness of his time and the glory of the olden days.  Habakkuk 3:2 O Lord, I have heard Your speech and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy.”

Not only can Satan use past history against us, he also uses recent history.  Americans look back at Azusa Street, The Charismatic Revival, The Jesus Movement and say, “America had her chance and she blew it!”

Peter had the courage to ask for a new miracle even though they had just had a historic miracle.  Acts 4:29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” 31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

prayer blog art

These verses contain the greatest hope of this letter because when God fell after Peter prayed we learned something urgent: The day of Pentecost was important because Pentecost proved the Holy Spirit would fall.  This prayer in Acts 4 proved something even more important: IT PROVED THAT GOD CAN DO IT AGAIN!

In his hour, our revival prayer must be mingled with two seemingly opposing attitudes:  We must pray with utter desperation admitting that without revival we are finished and God must do it again, but we must also pray with violent confidence that God will do it again!

God is seeks hearts and voices who will broom away the cobwebs of Satan’s lies!  Take your stand now and be part of the chorus that is singing with hearts ablaze, “there’s an army rising up to break every chain!”

First American Tyranny: We’re Cool With That.

First American Tyranny: We’re Cool With That

By Tadd Cronn

Why President Obama hasn’t been physically dragged out of office at this point is one of those questions that will likely remain a mystery.

In case you missed it, Obama this week declared to his Cabinet that if Congress doesn’t do what he wants it to do, he will simply use executive orders to create and enforce any law he chooses.  Based on the silence from my many liberal acquaintances, the response to Obama from the Left is “so what?”

Obama repeated his declaration to the Democratic members of Congress, who then walked out of the meeting without talking to reporters.  Again, silence. Did Obama talk too fast?  Was he not speaking clearly?

For my hard-headed friends on the Left, let’s review: The president of the United States just declared that Congress is null and void as far as he’s concerned.  Except for the fact that Congress will continue to burn through money like a hot knife through butter, and absent a formal declaration of dissolution, the Legislative Branch has effectively ceased to exist. It’s still there in the sense that it occupies space, but that’s it.

DIRTY DISHES

Obama is acting like Jack Nicholson in “Mars Attacks”: “I want the people to know that they still have two out of three branches of the government working for them, and that ain’t bad” Except the invader here isn’t from another planet… or even another country.  We’ve just witnessed a home-grown coup (And one that many of us saw coming even before Obama’s first presidential victory.)

We are now living — officially — in a dictatorship.  So where’s the outrage?  Is Twitter so fascinating that you just can’t be bothered?  Grumpy Cat got your tongue?  Bill Maher didn’t make fun of it, so it hasn’t happened?  Is it the fluoride in the water?  Is it the legalized pot?  Or is it that after years of dumbing down public education, we are simply too stupid to realize what just happened?

Another review for the Left: The government derives its authority from the people.  The Constitution is the contract that limits and defines what the government can do.  The president under the contract is supposed to work with Congress and enforce the laws that Congress passes. President Obama has just said he will not follow that contract he has with the people.  He has broken the contract.  No Constitution, no presidency.

Businessman with Tape over Mouth

So if Obama, despite breaking his contract, continues to accept and enjoy all the perks of the president’s office while failing to honor his obligations that makes him something else other than the president.  Now, what are you going to do about it?

I used to wonder how millions of Germans could allow a dictator to come to power.  We are now demonstrating exactly how it happens.

The President Who Has Done the Most Damage.

Dennis Prager

The President Who Has Done the Most Damage.

By Dennis Prager – October 29, 2013

I have been broadcasting for 31 years and writing for longer than that. I do not recall ever saying on radio or in print that a president is doing lasting damage to our country. I did not like the presidencies of Jimmy Carter (the last Democrat I voted for) or Bill Clinton. Nor did I care for the “compassionate conservatism” of George W. Bush. In modern political parlance “compassionate” is a euphemism for ever-expanding government.

But I have never written or broadcast that our country was being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great sadness that I write that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America. The only question is whether this can ever be undone.

This is equally true domestically and internationally.

Domestically, his policies have gravely impacted the American economy.

He has overseen the weakest recovery from a recession in modern American history.

He has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion dollars in five years (this after calling his predecessor “unpatriotic” for adding nearly $5 trillion in eight years).

He has fashioned a country in which more Americans now receive government aid — means-tested, let alone non-means tested — than work full-time.

He has no method of paying for this debt other than printing more money — thereby surreptitiously taxing everyone through inflation, including the poor he claims to be helping, and cheapening the dollar to the point that some countries are talking another reserve currency — and saddling the next generations with enormous debts.

With his 2,500-page Affordable Care Act, he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employee-sponsored group health insurance; he has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices; and he has caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers.

His Internal Revenue Service used its unparalleled power to stymie political dissent. No one has been held accountable.

His ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. No one has been blamed. The only blame the Obama administration has leveled was on a video maker in California who had nothing to do with the assault.

In this president’s White House, the buck stops nowhere.

Among presidents in modern American history, he has also been a uniquely divisive force. It began with his forcing Obamacare through Congress — the only major legislation in American history to be passed with no votes from the opposition party.

Though he has had a unique opportunity to do so, he has not only not helped heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them. His intrusions into the Trayvon Martin affair (“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon”) and into the confrontation between a white police officer and a black Harvard professor (the police “acted stupidly”) were unwarranted, irresponsible, demagogic and, most of all, divisive.

He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world — something he should know as well anybody, having been raised only by whites and being the first black elected the leader of a white-majority nation. Instead, he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against “the rich” and “corporate profits.”

Regarding America in the world, he has been, if possible, even more damaging. The United States is at its weakest, has fewer allies, and has less military and diplomatic influence than at any time since before World War I.

One wonders if there is a remaining ally nation that trusts him. And worse, no American enemy fears him. If you are a free movement (the democratic Iranian and Syrian oppositions) or a free country (Israel), you have little or no reason to believe that you have a steadfast ally in the United States.

Even non-democratic allies no longer trust America. Barack Obama has alienated our most important and longest standing Arab allies, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Both the anti-Muslim Brotherhood and the anti-Iran Arab states have lost respect for him.

And his complete withdrawal of American troops from Iraq has left that country with weekly bloodbaths.

Virtually nothing Barack Obama has done has left America or the world better since he became president. Nearly everything he has touched has been made worse.

He did, however, promise before the 2008 election that “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” That is the one promise he has kept.

Do not remain silent! The dire warning to American Pastors from voices of the past.

 Do not remain silent!   The dire warning to American Pastors from voices of the past.

By Mario Murillo

 

Mordecai said to Esther, “for if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14.

Businessman with Tape over Mouth

It is with a broken heart and deep reverence that I beg you my fellow ministers, do not remain silent about Obama and the Democratic Party.  I know that for me to remain silent will put blood on my hands and perhaps judgment in my future.  You may ask me how do you dare make such a claim?  That is when I will ask you, what more must Obama and Hillary Clinton do before you admit that he is a grave threat to everything that we hold dear as men and women of God?

I beg you!  Quit hiding behind myth of separation of church and state!  You have the right, yea the duty to speak out now before it is too late.

Listen to Matt Barber vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, “In recent years there’s been an epidemic of cultural inaction exhibited by far too many ministers of the gospel. It’s fear-based. “Oh, I don’t talk about political issues,” they say. “You know, ‘separation of Church and State’ and all that.”

Baloney.

If this is you — and only you and our Lord knows for sure — you’ve been deceived by the enemies of God. You’ve chosen the easy way out — the path of least resistance. This is something Christ, whom all Christians are called to emulate, never did — not once.

So, respectfully, man-up, Padre! Be the “salt and light of the world,” as Christ so admonished.

Did you get that? Despite hundreds of thousands of threatening letters sent by hard-left groups like the ACLU and Barry Lynn’s Americans United, not a single church has lost tax exemption for socio-political activity — zip, zero, nada. Not even for endorsing candidates from the pulpit.”

Obama and the Democratic Party’s agenda cannot win without the Christian vote and I believe that  if Pastors remain silent, we are headed for another defeat in 2014!

Are they afraid of losing tithers?  I am trying to wrap my brain around the idea of  a man of God who would rather lose a nation than a tither.

dietrich-bonhoffer

Perhaps you have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this?  Maybe God gave you that pulpit for such a time as this?  What if you are here to speak up at the precise time that socialism is about to swallow of American exceptionalism?  We have to rise up in the name of God and stop  this plan for the dismantling of everything good and right about America.

Are you still hiding behind the excuse that we are to be “loving and not speak out ”?  What if Esther had hidden behind that excuse?  Does love keep silent?

Maybe you believe that we need a big government ruling our lives. Just remember, when they start to control healthcare they will come and control your church.   They will do it in the name of good.

Here’s what C.S. Lewis said about the nanny state:  “Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

 Maybe you believe that the grievance industry fomented by Jesse  Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP  is a part of the civil rights movement.  It is not, listen to Dr. King’s own words:

“There was a time when the church was very powerful in the time when the early Christians rejoiced at being deemed worthy to suffer for what they believed. In those days the church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Whenever the early Christians entered a town, the people in power became disturbed and immediately sought to convict the Christians for being “disturbers of the peace” and outside agitators. But the Christians pressed on in the conviction that they were “a colony of heaven” called to obey God rather than man. Small in number they were big in commitment. They were too God-intoxicated to be “astronomically intimidated.” By their effort and example they brought an end to such ancient evils as infanticide.”

protesting evil

You can cave into pressure, remain silent and let this moment bring irreversible damage.  However, do not fool yourself.  I say this with tears of love and I am quaking with conviction.  I believe we are fairly warned!  The next time you pray for growth, miracles, blessing or finances, consider the broken heart of God who will remember your silence, and that silence, I believe, will be screaming at God a lot louder than your prayers.
