WAIT 4 YEARS? NO WAY!

Cutting our losses, and waiting for Trump to run again in 2024, is the worst idea ever. A coach just lost a game. The referees were paid off. The score keeper was paid off. Some of your own coaches and players were paid off. What do you do? Do you ask for a rematch or an investigation? Let’s nail down the reasons:

  1. If this election was stolen, and we don’t catch the thieves, it means we will never have a free election in America again. And, certainly not in 2024. All who believe this election was stolen must fight for justice now. We must fight with every last ounce of our strength.  We must fight for as long as it takes to get justice. This act of treason cannot go unpunished.

If, as a mountain of evidence clearly demonstrates, Democrats used corrupted voting machines to steal this election—if Communist China helped pay for, plan, and execute this electoral theft—if villains used the pandemic as the excuse to use mail-in ballots, and then falsified those ballots, then we have no choice. Why would you believe that Trump could win in 2024, if we allow Biden and his fellow operatives to have 4 years to deepen the Deep State?

2, God in His mercy let us discover this cancer to get rid of it now. We have come to see evil on a scale that can leave you in stunned disbelief. Even so, it is better that we found out about it.  It would have been worse had Trump won, while this monster continued to remain hidden. Trump would have faced a system of corruption that has tentacles in the Democrat Party, the Republican Party, Communist China, the Mainstream news, Big Tech—and even the Supreme Court.

God let us see this cancer so that we could do what you always have to do when you find a malignant tumor—cut it out of the nation’s body. There is no room for capitulation. Never mind the high-profile pastors who have congratulated Biden. That was a huge mistake. They have no idea of the ramifications of what they are saying. They have left their first love. Even though they have surrendered, you cannot. Waiting on a cancer to grow, isn’t an option. We can’t wait 4 years.

3. We cannot wait because the price of restoring America will only get steeper. We have heard about the screaming match that took place behind closed doors, in chambers, at the Supreme Court, after they had received the lawsuit from Texas. I have lost confidence in John Roberts who now seems to operate more like a politician, rather than the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.  So, I tend to believe the rest of the story is true.

It seems they were yelling at each other because Roberts ordered them to turn down Texas. Apparently, he yelled at the other justices, saying that if they exposed the election fraud and reversed the result, there would be riots. One of the older justices apparently shouted back, that if we don’t expose the corruption, it will be the end of democracy. It supposedly ended with Roberts ordering them to reject the Texas complaint.

Even riots would be preferable to allowing millions of patriotic Americans to silently march into the darkness of a global socialist captivity. Even mass rioting is better than letting ourselves be herded helplessly into a world of oppression and totalitarian communism.

If we do not stop them right now, the Left will see to it that there is no Great Awakening in America. No souls won. No families healed. No babies kept safe from Planned Parenthood. There will never again be freedom of religion in America. Period.

That leads me to the final reason we can’t wait 4 years.

It is all about Communist China. The virus. The computer hacks. The vast bribes and spying. Now this election. It all points to China. China means to absorb us. China means to wipe out every vestige of freedom. Biden is the sole property of Communist China. And even the Justice Department and the FBI refuse to say anything bad about China. Ask yourself, ‘How is that even possible?’

We, as the Church of Jesus Christ, must rise up, back the President, and preserve this great nation! This is our time. This is our opportunity. We must meet the challenge, or it is game over!

We are left with an inescapable conclusion and a supernatural duty. Giving in to Biden’s fake presidency is to surrender to Communist China. God has chosen the remnant in the American church to stand in both the heavenlies and in the natural.

God’s chosen core can cut demonic power off at the knees and release an era of reformation. The verse that informs us and instructs us is found in 1 Samuel 10:6, “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.”

The Spirit of the Lord wants to descend as fire, and turn an audience into an army and spectators into soldiers. The verse in 1 Samuel I quoted, tells us that we can be turned into a new person—a person fit for the enormous challenge that lies before us—a person forged and empowered for the intense spiritual warfare ahead.

It is now the “occasion” that will dictate our actions. The prophet said, “Do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.” The occasion demands that we not wait 4 years. The occasion demands that we not grow weary or disheartened. The occasion demands that we keep pressing the attack, even when it seems totally futile, because God is with us and the Holy Spirit will fan the flames of revival when we need it most!

WHEN PEOPLE DESPISE THEIR OWN DELIVERANCE

It’s a real movement and there are even real t-shirts you can buy. They say things like, “Christians Against Trump” or “Loyal To Christ Not Trump.” Presumably, if they are Christians who are against Trump, they are also against the Christians who are for Trump. I am not trying to be technical, it’s just a fact. The reason I begin with that, is so you will know that I am not picking on them—they are picking on us.

They are saying and doing things against believers who support Trump and I find that disgraceful. It is one thing to disagree with Trump, but quite another to impugn the character of Trump supporters.

Since there is nothing uglier than a family fight, I am writing this under extreme duress and with reluctance. However, the situation is too grave to allow this attack to go unanswered.

What is wrong with these people? Let me answer that by introducing you to a personality type that is in sad abundance today: The ‘nattering nabob.’ These are people who suddenly and inexplicably turn against their own convictions just so they will look good to the other side. These three prominent men qualify currently: George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, and John Kasich.

Nattering Nabobs spout a lot of words, but you can’t follow them or make any sense of their diatribes. Today they are adamantly for what they were adamantly against, yesterday. And, as of now, they are vehemently opposed to what they were vehemently in favor of ten minutes ago.  They make nonsensical arguments and feel exhilarated, while everyone else in the room looks on with bewilderment and, in many cases, pity.

The most classic feature of a nattering nabob, is that they have a complaint and a rant, but they provide no alternative for the problem. Incredulously, Bush is going to vote for Biden. Mitt Romney actually voted for the impeachment of Trump, and John Kasich, a Republican in name only, humiliated himself at the Democrat Convention by pandering to the enemies of freedom.

Underneath all their pomp is a hidden motive. Trump, in their view, has done them wrong. Bush saw his brother bashed. That means he can,  with a clear conscience, support the socialist apocalypse and late term abortion he once hated. Mitt Romney, was snubbed by Trump, so he now feels justified in going against his former convictions. John Kasich is by far the saddest. His resentment gave way to a delirium where he is the only one in the room that doesn’t know how pathetic and ludicrous he is.

The same thing applies to these believers who bought the t-shirt. The most interesting thing about them comes when you ask them what they think is the alternative to Biden. They know the horror he represents. They know Biden celebrates everything a believer should find abhorrent. When you confront the “woke believer” for a solution to the problem, look closely and see if they don’t suddenly remind you of the times when Captain Kirk outsmarted an enemy computer that began to smoke and exclaim, “It does not compute!” Or you will hear ethereal platitudes better fit for a lecture on unicorns.

I get it. You find Trump offensive, my brother and sister in the Lord. I also get the cheap and easy acceptance readily available from the Left, and the stigma attached to standing against peer pressure.

But remember, President Trump stands with all evangelical Christians and supports Israel. He deserves your support. Why would you side with the enemies of America and God by voting against him?

I am not saying that Trump is a ‘type’ of Christ, but what I am saying is that Christ was a deliverance that the Jews found offensive. When Jesus saw that they despised their own deliverance He wept.

“Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation” Luke 19:41-44).

Can you honestly say you have asked God about Trump?

WHY TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT GEORGE W. BUSH

President Trump was right to call out George W. Bush, who was silent about national unity during the criminally depraved impeachment trial. But now, suddenly, Bush is all for unity during the pandemic?

George W. Bush of all people should have been outraged by the assault Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, and Jerry Nadler made on the Presidency.  With all due respect, I believe he should have been a bigger man at that time. Whatever petty baggage he carries from his perception of Trump’s treatment of his brother Jeb, is nothing compared to the horror and permanent damage this false impeachment did to the Executive Branch of the United States government.

Let’s turn to the Bible for insight on why Bush is wrong. In 2 Samuel 1:14, King David was confronted by a man who claimed to have killed King Saul, David’s mortal enemy. “So David said to him, “How was it you were not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy the Lord’s anointed?” Though Saul had tried on numerous occasions to kill David, David still mourned Saul’s death and even executed the man who had not been afraid to take the crown off Saul’s head, and bringing it, with the armlet from Saul’s arm. Why?

Because David believed that no matter what, Saul was God’s anointed. David respected the office. George Bush—of all people—should have respected the office. The time for him to speak out for unity and to warn that something could destroy us was during the fraud impeachment of Trump, not now.

Bush should have protested the disgraceful attack on the office of President by the Democrats. Bush should have warned the nation then about how we are all in this together. He should have protected the Executive branch of government from tyranny.

Mr. Bush knows, as few men know, the corruption of the Democrat Party. He also knows the long term damage these leftists have set in motion for future Presidents. Impeachment has been weaponized. It will be used to destroy any President that the House of Representatives does not approve of. It will be used even when there is no evidence of wrong doing. That was the new ground that Pelosi and her cohorts broke.

Let’s say—God forbid—that Biden wins. The Republican retaliation will be swift and withering.

Let’s say Donald Trump wins. Adam Schiff has already begun new impeachment hearings, and he can do so because the precedent has been set by their previous attempt at impeachment. And because there were no consequences for Schiff, he feels empowered. Has none of this occurred to George W?

Worst of all, no matter who wins, our devastated economy won’t get strong leadership.  A bitterly divided government will be distracted by more and more investigations and trials.

The American public has just seen two other examples of Democrat debauchery. We recently learned that General Michael Flynn was the target of high level FBI agents who were blindly loyal to Barack Obama. Knowing Flynn was innocent, still they set a trap by lying, and tricked the General into incriminating himself falsely.

We also see how Tara Reade is being trashed by the hypocritical #MeToo movement, because electing Joe Biden justifies depriving abused women of justice. Brett Kavanaugh was guilty until proven innocent. But Joe is innocent until they can change the subject.

Bush’s first loyalty should have been to our system of government. He should have been thinking about the Founding Fathers more than his hurt feelings. If a former President can’t reverence the office, who can?

And how can he say we are in this together when he knows that a rogue government led by Barack Obama and others is feverishly working to destroy the very foundation of our freedom?

Again, what Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Chuck Schumer, and Jerry Nadler did was evil—an evil that will continue to damage America for many years to come. Such a vicious and baseless ad hominem attack on a sitting President, such blatant lèse majesté of that kind, should have roused George W. Bush to speak out.

If he truly cares about saving America, he would not, in my opinion, call for a fake unity built on sweeping evil under the rug, just because he doesn’t like the victim.

George W. Bush Bashes Obama on Middle East

In a closed-door meeting with Jewish donors on Saturday night, former President George W. Bush delivered his harshest public criticisms to date against his successor on foreign policy, saying that President Barack Obama is being naïve about Iran and the pending nuclear deal and losing the war against the Islamic State.

One attendee at the Republican Jewish Coalition session, held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas with owner Sheldon Adelson in attendance, transcribed large portions of Bush’s remarks. The former president, who rarely ever criticizes Obama in public, at first remarked that the idea of re-entering the political arena was something he didn’t want to do. He then proceeded to explain why Obama, in his view, was placing the U.S. in “retreat” around the world. He also said Obama was misreading Iran’s intentions while relaxing sanctions on Tehran too easily.

According to the attendee’s transcription, Bush noted that Iran has a new president, Hassan Rouhani. “He’s smooth,” Bush said. “And you’ve got to ask yourself, is there a new policy or did they just change the spokesman?”

Bush said that Obama’s plan to lift sanctions on Iran with a promise that they could snap back in place at any time was not plausible. He also said the deal would be bad for American national security in the long term: “You think the Middle East is chaotic now? Imagine what it looks like for our grandchildren. That’s how Americans should view the deal.”

Bush then went into a detailed criticism of Obama’s policies in fighting the Islamic State and dealing with the chaos in Iraq. On Obama’s decision to withdraw all U.S. troops in Iraq at the end of 2011, he quoted Senator Lindsey Graham calling it a “strategic blunder.” Bush signed an agreement with the Iraqi government to withdraw those troops, but the idea had been to negotiate a new status of forces agreement to keep U.S. forces there past 2011. The Obama administration tried and failed to negotiate such an agreement.

Bush said he views the rise of the Islamic State as al-Qaeda’s “second act” and that they may have changed the name but that murdering innocents is still the favored tactic. He defended his own administration’s handling of terrorism, noting that the terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who confessed to killing Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, was captured on his watch: “Just remember the guy who slit Danny Pearl’s throat is in Gitmo, and now they’re doing it on TV.”

Obama promised to degrade and destroy Islamic State’s forces but then didn’t develop a strategy to complete the mission, Bush said. He said that if you have a military goal and you mean it, “you call in your military and say ‘What’s your plan?’ ” He indirectly touted his own decision to surge troops to Iraq in 2007, by saying, “When the plan wasn’t working in Iraq, we changed.”

“In order to be an effective president … when you say something you have to mean it,” he said. “You gotta kill em.”

Bush told several anecdotes about his old friend and rival Russian President Vladimir Putin. Bush recalled that Putin met his dog Barney at the White House and then later, when Bush went to Moscow, Putin showed him his dog and remarked that he was “bigger stronger and faster than Barney.” For Bush, that behavior showed him that Putin didn’t think in “win-win” terms.

Bush also remarked that Putin was rich, divorced his wife and loves power. Putin’s domestic popularity comes from his control of Russian media, according to Bush. “Hell, I’d be popular, too, if I owned NBC news,” he said.

Regarding his brother Jeb’s potential run for the presidency, Bush acknowledged that he was a political liability for Jeb, that the Bush name can be used against him, and that Americans don’t like dynasties. He also said that foreign policy is going to be especially important in the presidential campaign and that the test for Republicans running will be who has got the “courage” to resist isolationist tendencies.

Regarding Hillary Clinton, Bush said it will be crucial how she plays her relationship with the president. She will eventually have to choose between running on the Obama administration’s policies or running against them. If she defends them, she’s admitting failure, he said, but if she doesn’t she’s blaming the president.

For George W. Bush, the remarks in Vegas showed he has little respect for how the current president is running the world. He also revealed that he takes little responsibility for the policies that he put in place that contributed to the current state of affairs.

Franklin Graham: Both Obama And Bush ‘Have Done A Great Disservice,’ Calling Islam Peaceful

Franklin Graham: Both Obama And Bush ‘Have Done A Great Disservice,’ Calling Islam Peaceful

“Mr. President—followers of a peaceful religion do not cut off the heads of innocent people.”

In a commentary for Decision magazine, evangelist Franklin Graham calls out both President Obama and President Bush for defending Islam as a religion of peace.

Graham is reacting specifically to Obama’s speech before the U.N. in September in which the president said, “Islam teaches peace,” and also to George W. Bush, who, days after 9/11, said, “Islam is peace.”

Graham writes:

Both men have done a great disservice to the American public by not understanding Islam and its teaching in the Quran.

The day after Obama addressed the U.N. in September, Graham recalls that he stood across from the White House in Lafayette Square with the hope that the president would hear his message in praying for the release of imprisoned Iranian-American Christian Saeed Abedini:

Mr. President—followers of a peaceful religion do not cut off the heads of innocent people in the barbaric fashion the world has watched recently.

Mr. President—believers in a peaceful religion do not kidnap 300 young schoolgirls as Boko Haram did in northeastern Nigeria in April and reportedly [sell] them to men to be sex slaves.

Mr. President—men who practice a peaceful religion do not detonate bombs on an American street during a marathon race to kill and maim innocent people.

Mr. President—no one who belongs to a peaceful religion would even consider hijacking jet airliners and flying them into buildings occupied by thousands of innocent people beginning their workday, as happened in this country and in this city on 9/11.

Mr. President—no peaceful religion would tolerate, let alone practice, female circumcision, require a woman to have her husband’s permission to leave her home and take up employment, and restrict her ability to receive justice in the case of sex crimes.

Mr. President—a peaceful religion would not condone and allow a father to drown a daughter in a swimming pool in front of the family in the name of family honor because she might have stayed out late in the evening with her boyfriend.

Mr. President—why haven’t the 3.5 million Muslims in North America rejected this gross, barbaric and despicable behavior by their fellow Muslims on American soil?

And that is Graham’s question left unanswered. He adds: “Why haven’t many, if not most, of the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world condemned these violent crimes against innocent humanity as they have occurred? Why would 23 percent of the world’s population stand by and allow their fellow Muslims to define them by violent behavior if this is truly a religion of peace?”

Christians, Graham affirms, “quickly and unanimously rise together to condemn” violent acts in the name of Christianity. “I cannot recall a single instance of violent behavior supposedly done in the name of Christianity that was not immediately repudiated by the Christian community,” he writes.

Graham calls Islam a “false religion…guided and characterized by treacherous deceit.” Furthermore, he concludes that a false religion can never be a true religion of peace. Only true religion that reconciles “a holy God and sinful man” can “bring lasting peace.”

He is not implying every false religion engages in “barbaric behavior,” but none of them, he says, “can deliver from the damning power of sin:”

Christ alone, the Son of God, saves from sin, Satan and death. He died on the cross for our sins, was buried and rose again from the dead.

My earnest prayer is that the Lord will use the chaotic and frightening events we see happening on the world stage to drive people, including followers of Islam, to the only solution—personal, transforming faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.

The fruits of epic incompetence.

obama epic incompetence

The fruits of epic incompetence

By , Published: September 12.

The president of the United States takes to the airwaves to urgently persuade the nation to pause before doing something it has no desire to do in the first place.Strange. And it gets stranger still. That “strike Syria, maybe” speech begins with a heart-rending account of children consigned to a terrible death by a monster dropping poison gas. It proceeds to explain why such behavior must be punished. It culminates with the argument that the proper response — the most effective way to uphold fundamental norms, indeed human decency — is a flea bite: something “limited,” “targeted” or, as so memorably described by Secretary of State John Kerry, “unbelievably small.”

Charles Krauthammer

The mind reels, but there’s more. We must respond — but not yet. This “Munich moment” (Kerry again) demands first a pause to find accommodation with that very same toxin-wielding monster, by way of negotiations with his equally cynical, often shirtless, Kremlin patron bearing promises.

The promise is to rid Syria of its chemical weapons. The negotiations are open-ended. Not a word from President Obama about any deadline or ultimatum. And utter passivity: Kerry said hours earlier that he awaited the Russian proposal.

Why? The administration claims (preposterously, but no matter) that Obama has been working on this idea with Putin at previous meetings. Moreover, the idea was first publicly enunciated by Kerry, even though his own State Department immediately walked it back as a slip of the tongue.

Take at face value Obama’s claim of authorship. Then why isn’t he taking ownership? Why isn’t he calling it the “U.S. proposal” and defining it? Why not issue a U.S. plan containing the precise demands, detailed timeline and threat of action should these conditions fail to be met?

Putin doesn’t care one way or the other about chemical weapons. Nor about dead Syrian children. Nor about international norms, parchment treaties and the other niceties of the liberal imagination.

He cares about power and he cares about keeping Bashar al-Assad in power. Assad is the key link in the anti-Western Shiite crescent stretching from Tehran through Damascus and Beirut to the Mediterranean — on which sits Tartus, Russia’s only military base outside the former Soviet Union. This axis frontally challenges the pro-American Sunni Arab Middle East (Jordan, Yemen, the Gulf Arabs, even the North African states), already terrified at the imminent emergence of a nuclear Iran.

At which point the Iran axis and its Russian patron would achieve dominance over the moderate Arab states, allowing Russia to supplant America as regional hegemon for the first time since Egypt switched to our side in the Cold War in 1972.

The hinge of the entire Russian strategy is saving the Assad regime. That’s the very purpose of the “Russian proposal.” Imagine that some supposed arms-control protocol is worked out. The inspectors have to be vetted by Assad, protected by Assad, convoyed by Assad, directed by Assad to every destination. Negotiation, inspection, identification, accounting, transport and safety would require constant cooperation with the regime, and thus acknowledgment of its sovereignty and legitimacy.

So much for Obama’s repeated insistence that Assad must go. Indeed, Putin has openly demandedthat any negotiation be conditioned on a U.S. commitment to forswear the use of force against Assad. On Thursday, Assad repeated that demand, warning that without an American pledge not to attack and not to arm the rebels, his government would agree to nothing.

This would abolish the very possibility of America tilting the order of battle in a Syrian war that Assad is now winning thanks to Russian arms, Iranian advisers and Lebanese Hezbollah shock troops. Putin thus assures the survival of his Syrian client and the continued ascendancy of the anti-Western Iranian bloc.

And what does America get? Obama saves face.

Some deal.

As for the peace process, it has about zero chance of disarming Damascus. We’ve spent nine years disarming an infinitely smaller arsenal in Libya — in conditions of peace — and we’re still finding undeclared stockpiles.

Yet consider what’s happened over the last month. Assad uses poison gas on civilians and is branded, by the United States above all, a war criminal. Putin, covering for the war criminal, is exposed, isolated, courting pariah status.

And now? Assad, far from receiving punishment of any kind, goes from monster to peace partner. Putin bestrides the world stage, playing dealmaker. He’s welcomed by America as a constructive partner. Now a world statesman, he takes to the New York Times to blame American interventionist arrogance — a.k.a. “American exceptionalism” — for inducing small states to acquire WMDs in the first place.

And Obama gets to slink away from a Syrian debacle of his own making. Such are the fruits of a diplomacy of epic incompetence.

‘Million Muslim March’ 2013 and ‘2 Million Bikers’ [VIDEO]: Washington D.C. rally expected on anniversary of September 11 attacks

VIDEO: MOTORCYCLES RUMBLE THROUGH ON THE WAY TO D.C. FOR 9/11 RALLY

Sep. 11, 2013 9:20am 

Editor’s note: This post is being updated throughout the day. Be sure to scroll to the bottom for the most recent videos, pictures, and information.

While the bikers heading to Washington, D.C., for the “2 Million Bikers to D.C.” rally to commemorate 9/11 (and counter the million Muslim march) aren’t expected into the nation’s capital until around 11 a.m., pictures and video are still surfacing of them making their way.

The local NBC station in D.C. says riders will be first hitting the area around 9 a.m. before reaching their ultimate destination a couple hours later.

We’ve compiled some of the preparation and early action below and will bring you more complete coverage from our reporters on the ground when they roll in:

This video was posted on YouTube of riders rolling down a highway — it’s unclear where it was taken:

WATE-TV in Tennessee has video of bikers from that area departing to join the rally:

WPMT-TV in Harrisburg, PA, chronicled a local group’s participation:

And WTOL-TV in Toledo, OH, did the same thing last week:

This video from Smithfield, NC, shows a group rolling through at night:

The event’s Facebook page posted a schedule:

And organizers also posted some pictures of organizers firing up the crowd and  showing just some of the numerous motorcycles already lining up at a meeting point in Maryland:

One Twitter user posted another picture showing the line outside the local bike show. She says the bikes are four to six wide:

Belinda Bee, one of the rally’s co-organizers who told TheBlaze on Monday the story of the group being denied a permit by the Park Service, told her story again this morning on “Fox & Friends”:

Blaze reader Joe Roberts, who says he’s a retired Marine Corps master sergeant, sent these pictures in as he’s waiting to start his ride.

“I don’t think the progressives on the hill will be able to ignore this,” he says:

Dick Uliano, whose Twitter profile says he’s a reporter for WTOP, sent out a message saying that there are “easily several thousand motorcycles” at the area he was stationed:

He also sent out a picture as the kickstands came up and the riders began rolling:

According to local outlet WTOP-RADIO, it appears the bikers may not be actually entering the capital as a massive group.

They reportedly will not go into D.C. as a large group.

“There are so many motorcycles that trying to go through Washington, D.C., would not have worked,” Eric Zern, a ride organizer from Hagerstown, MD, told the station.

Instead, the station says the group will travel one time on the Outer Loop of the Capital Beltway from Prince George’s County to Montgomery County and then into Virginia. They’ll then return to where they started, the Harley Davidson story in Fort Washington, MD.

However, individual riders can decide if they’d like to divert themselves into D.C.

You can try and capture the arrival via DC’s extensive traffic camera system.

In fact, one video posted to YouTube appears to have been taken from one of those cameras:

Other videos are surfacing as well claiming to show the bikers on the highway:

Support for President Obama’s call for military airstrikes in Syria is sliding on Capitol HIll.

Support for President Obama’s call for military airstrikes in Syria is sliding on Capitol HIll.

WASHINGTON — President Obama’s push for congressional approval for military airstrikes in Syria ran aground Monday, forcing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to delay a procedural vote as opposition builds among senators in both parties.

Six senators, including five Republicans and one Democrat, announced Monday they would vote against a resolution authorizing the use of force — a strong indication that the administration’s efforts to build bipartisan support have been ineffective.

The Senate was scheduled to vote Wednesday on a procedural motion to begin formal debate on the resolution, but Reid announced late Monday the vote would be delayed in order to buy the president more time to make his case to senators and the public.

“What we need to do is make sure the president has the opportunity to speak to all 100 senators and all 300 million American people before we do this,” Reid said.

The delay also came amid reports that Russia was seeking a deal with Syria to dismantle its chemical weapons program. Obama said in television interviews Monday such a deal could circumvent the need for U.S. military intervention, but senators had not been briefed on the development and expressed skepticism.

“I have no idea what’s going on. It’d be great if the Russians could convince Assad to turn over his chemical weapons to the international community. That’d be a terrific outcome. I just am very dubious and skeptical,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

Comments made Monday in London by Secretary of State John Kerry describing the military effort as “unbelievably small” also rankled lawmakers. Graham said Kerry “undercut everything the president has been doing for the last couple of days” to build support.

The rapid clip of senators announcing their opposition on Monday raised serious doubts that the president would be able to muster the necessary support in either the House or Senate. The GOP-led House is not likely to take up a resolution unless the Senate can pass it first. A final Senate vote was expected this weekend, but Reid’s decision to delay the formal debate puts the schedule in flux.

Five GOP Sens. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Roy Blunt of Missouri, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Roger Wicker of Mississippi, and Mike Enzi of Wyoming all announced opposition Monday, as did Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota.

Briefings by top administration officials and a weekend conversation with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel were not enough to sway Alexander. “I see too much risk that the strike will do more harm than good by setting off a chain of consequences that could involve American fighting men and women in another long-term Middle East conflict,” he said.

Heitkamp was the latest in a string of Democratic senators from conservative states to come out in opposition, including Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark. Heitkamp and Manchin are working on an alternative resolution that would give the Assad government 45 days to sign an international chemical weapons ban and begin turning over its chemical weapons before authorizing U.S. military action.

Two Democratic senators, Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico, declared their support. However, Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., who voted for the resolution in the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, cautioned Monday that he preferred pursuing diplomatic solutions.

The opposition underscored the uphill battle Obama faces on Capitol Hill to rally around his foreign policy agenda. The president will visit separately with Senate Democrats and Senate Republicans on Tuesday before his prime-time television address.

Graham, who supports the resolution, said he believed it could still pass the Senate: “If the president does a good job tomorrow night, yes.”
