here's a little reminder, people...
America was AND is designed to allow all religions to live together in peace...
and with such a mandate, dating back a couple hundred of years, America was truly unique. Some might even say, exceptional.
That is until living freely and openly Under God became a lightning rod for hate -- coming under attack by progressives tearing down our traditions and holidays almost on a daily basis, along with Atheists and other Freedom From Religion enthusiasts making it their mission to take any belief, and all evidence thereof, of God down.........and not like a lamb, but with a vengeance. [It's weird, really, as nondescript as "God" Itself truly Is -- but where it should not matter the packaging, the exercising, or the label attached...the consensus seems sharply focused upon attacking Christianity. Can I get a witness?]
America was AND is designed to have personal freedom in the FREE EXERCISE of our religion AND in our FREE EXERCISE of no religion...that is until said free exercise (whether we agree with it or not) suddenly costs 150K.
America was AND is designed with a government respective of a Natural Law in place -- with a knowing that SOMETHING GREATER than humanity endows each member of our society UNALIENABLE RIGHTS with NO man, and more specifically, no GOVERNMENT made up of men, truly needed in order to give us, we the people, said rights. [And men simply being, humanity...]
America just isn't like some places around the world at all.
Take for example, the Middle East, the whole kit and caboodle. (Did you like that? You know, the more you know, the more you learn you don't know...and sometimes the origins of things matter -- just as in other times, it doesn't make a hill of beans difference (boom). Am I right, Mrs. Hillary "what difference at this point does it make" Clinton?)
oh my goodness, all this digression is gonna kill my point today.
So over the weekend, in a part of the world where multiple religions cannot live freely and openly with one another -- the Middle East -- we received word of another beheading. No. Wait. Not just one beheading, because then I might be able to reconcile a day of golf immediately thereafter -- but 21 be-headings. Twenty One! The antithesis of the 21 gun salute in every way, twenty-one Egyptian Coptic Christian men were beheaded on a beach in Libya.
Let's see why -- cue Breitbart:
"A Message Signed with Blood to the Nation of the Cross" is the title of the video...
"Oh people, recently you have seen us on the hills of Al-Sham and Dabiq’s plain, chopping off the heads that have been carrying the cross for a long time, and today, we are on the south of Rome, on the land of Islam, Libya, sending another message.
All crusaders: safety for you will be only wishes especially if you are fighting us all together. Therefore we will fight you all together. The sea you have hidden Sheikh Osama bin Laden’s body in, we swear to Allah we will mix it with your blood."so that is pretty clear,
the land of Islam is fighting against the "Nation of the Cross" -- which is all of Christianity, no matter Rome, Italy or Rome, New York, or Rome, Georgia. [and what am I thinking -- let's give a free enterprise nod to Olive Garden's latest advertising campaign planting that seed.]
"All crusaders...The sea you have hidden Sheikh Osama bin Laden’s body in, we swear to Allah we will mix it with your blood."Taking a cue from President Obama's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast a couple weeks ago, these Violent Islamic Extremists believe nothing's changed from the Middle Ages, talking the Crusades and all. So thank you, Mr. President; our president handed them a new narrative --- not that any of them in the caboodle needed one.
And what up -- using the burial place in the death of Osama Bin Laden as another talking point? That certainly takes us back to the punting-football moment of "GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead", huh Joe.
And what up -- Libya? Of all places for this caboodle of masked Islamic Caliphate marauders to land...
If anyone is keeping track, nearly everything this administration has done to"bring peace and civility" to the Middle East has blown up in their faces. Or is that OUR faces -- as in, all of our faces, as in they, the "ISIL-affiliated terrorists," will fight us all together, as in all of us?
And just how did our administration respond to the be-headings?
“The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists,” it said. “We offer our condolences to the families of the victims and our support to the Egyptian government and people as they grieve for their fellow citizens. ISIL’s barbarity knows no bounds. It is unconstrained by faith, sect, or ethnicity.”[But it IS CONSTRAINED by faith, sect, and ethnicity!!!!! FOR THEY TELL US SO!!!!!!]
Oh but here's another thing -- it wasn't even spoken out of the mouth of our president (because he went golfing!!!!!!). The world comes to a standstill with the shock and horror of twenty-one Christian Coptic Egyptians being beheaded on a beach in Libya and our president cannot sit still for one day out of respect? Seriously? [Of course this girl is not surprised; he didn't join the world's leaders in solidarity in Paris either...]
Here's a thought: Can you just imagine how the president would react if Christians beheaded 21 Muslims on a beach in San Diego?
But wait. There's more.
TO combat all of this stuff that we seem to not know about the kit and caboodle of characters, be it ISIS, al-Qaeda, Hamas, and lone-wolf terrorists of all shapes and sizes but same bat channel of religious association AND all of its affiliates: the Nation of Islam...
we get a summit.
Because talking about it is much easier than doing something about it.
V.P. Joe Biden is expected to open the summit.
Wonder what he will begin with....perhaps we can expect something equally provocative and catchy as reminding the nation of Islam we killed their leader. And with aplomb.
Rest assured, there will be many discussions -- MANY -- on the whole kit and caboodle that is considered acts of extremism and terrorism and all things threatening in America and the entire world in which we live. It will ALL be DISCUSSED.
It was just a week ago -- only a few days before the be-headings of 21 Coptic Christian Egyptians on a beach in Libya, a place of Islamic Implosion since the day we bombed it without any long-term plan of sustainability in place -- our president made this announcement:
Make no mistake — this is a difficult mission and it will remain difficult for some time. It’s going to take time to dislodge these terrorists, especially from urban areas. But our coalition is on the offensive. ISIL is on the defensive, and ISIL is going to lose,” Mr. Obama said in a brief address. “Our coalition is strong, our cause is just and our mission will succeed. And long after the terrorists we face today are destroyed and forgotten, America will continue to stand free and tall and strong. (The Washington Times)
They -- the "ISIL-affiliated terrorists" -- came right back "on the defensive" and beheaded 21 Christians for no other reason than they be Christian -- does it really matter where they came?
yeah, America is not like that.
America was AND is designed to be different...

The exception to the way of the world around us

The authorization prohibits “enduring offensive ground combat operations,” but there is confusion about exactly what that term means. Mr. Obama stressed that he won’t commit the U.S. to another all-out ground war but made clear that he will use special operations forces to target Islamic State leaders when necessary.
“If we had actionable intelligence about a gathering of ISIL leaders and our partners didn’t have the capacity to get them, I would be prepared to order our special forces to take action,” he said.exactly.
that's what summits are for -- and then applying the "actionable intelligence" using any means necessary...It’s going to take time to dislodge these terrorists, especially from urban areas.
[that's funny...'especially from urban areas'...what? did our president really just say that?]
and Our coalition is strong, our cause is just and our mission will succeed. And long after the terrorists we face today are destroyed and forgotten, America will continue to stand free and tall and strong.
yeah. yeah, they will just go away.
Because our mission is stronger than their mission, our cause is more just than their cause??
But what does history tell us...
The United States and Islam have a history...
From a piece plucked from WND.com, Bill Federer explains:
When Jefferson asked the Muslim ambassador what the new country of America had done to offend them, he reported to John Jay, March 28, 1786: “The Ambassador answered us that it was … written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged Islam’s authority were sinners, that it was their … duty to make war upon them … and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.”
[In his First Annual Message, Dec. 8, 1801, Thomas Jefferson stated:]
“Tripoli … of the Barbary States, had come forward with demands unfounded either in right or in compact, and had permitted itself to (announce) war on our failure to comply before a given day. The style of the demand admitted but one answer. I sent a small squadron of frigates into the Mediterranean, with assurances to that power of our sincere desire to remain in peace, but with orders to protect our commerce against the threatened attack. ”
As Federer continues to explain --
The Navy and Marines later captured Tripoli and forced the Pasha to make peace on U.S. terms.
Frederick Leiner wrote in “The End of the Barbary Terror – America’s 1815 War Against the Pirates of North Africa” (Oxford University Press): “Commodore Stephen Decatur and diplomat William Shaler withdrew to consult in private. … The Algerians were believed to be masters of duplicity, willing to make agreements and break them as they found convenient.”
[And for more about this time in history, go to The Thomas Jefferson Papers, here]
"Masters of Duplicity"
kinda reminding me of a certain Commander-In-Chief. just sayin'
Me thinks the whole kit and caboodle under God here is in for a rude awakening once history is documented for all the world to see. (That is, if we survive and live in a land with the freedom to tell the story still).
Long after this president is gone -- after he finds himself upon the greens in Palm Desert with no reason not to... day after day after day -- we will all come to know the truth about what is truly happening here.
And the hindsight will not be kind; for President Obama's true caboodle is not here, but over there.
He will retire from office and realize what he's always known -- he will "convert" to Islam and come out of the closet a Muslim. [Working in the same pattern as his "evolution" on traditional marriage... He lives a lie until he can safely come out with the truth. It's just about the optics, of politics, you know....and everyone will applaud his bravery, no doubt.] go ahead and laugh...what ever. Mark my words, you heard it here first.
Thing is -- the whole kit and caboodle always comes out eventually.
Make it a Good Day, G
and right, Mr. President -- ISIL is on defense, as far as the eye can see, which presently, is all over the internet. God save us all.
