BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE
May 6, 2011
I find it hard to believe with all the new high techy gadgets in the hands of our young folks and all that very costly “education reform” to turn our children into little globalists we’ve seen the last 20-30 years that in the 24 and under age category the question Googled most since he was killed is, “Who is Osama bin Ladin (ObL)? It’s frightening to believe these are the young folks we oldies are hoping will return us to a “republic” that most oldies by lack of vigilance lost to a “democracy/mobocracy.” Now many young revolutionaries (especially the brainwashed college educated) are now participants in this “mobocracy.” All we have to do is remember the scenes at the Madison, Wisconsin capitol earlier this year.
And now even a Tucson, Arizona “community organizer” and a Democrat is shocked over the subject how Thanksgiving is described in a new Marxist-driven curriculum as a “Dominant White Culture and the Beginning of Genocide” and she doesn’t want it in the school but the young people are turning out to protest in favor of the program which teaches students how to overthrow the government.
I also find it interesting that ObL was assassinated on May 1st – International Labor holiday, that has for over a century been the most important holiday of the year for communists, socialists, anarchists and witchcraft. Also on May 1, 2003 President George Walker Bush on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln prematurely declared the war with Iraq was over.
If this ObL house call was suppose to be a secret operation, how was it an Australian internet posting coincidentally on April 26, 2011 had a caption “Capturing bin Laden ‘would unleash hell.’” And then we learn arrangements had been made to have a Muslim cleric on the battleship to give ObL last rites, to have a white sheet available in order to wrap his evil body after he’d been washed and then he was dumped into the Arabic sea.
Brigitte Gabriel, author of the 2006 book, “Why They Hate” was a recent guest with radio talk show host Mike Gallagher. She said that pre-arranged, dignified burial sent the wrong message to our enemy and goes to prove how our government speaks out of both sides of its mouth. This confusion is why we are not able to win the struggle that has been ongoing since September 11 nearly tens years ago. And why do we keep giving money to Pakistan? Could it be because of the many nukes that Pakistan possesses? Are we trying to buy protection with Pakistan? A large percentage of the world’s population has civil defense shelters. Our elected officials have bunkers but American citizens generally have none. President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) was approved by more than 80 top scientists but the scoffers ridiculed it calling it “Star Wars” and to the best of my knowledge, the idea was dropped leaving us vulnerable to nuclear attack so now we buy favors from enemies? Have we found ourselves between a rock and a hard place?
Brigitte seemed incensed that ObL was given such a dignified burial and said America should have wrapped him in bacon and paraded him through American city streets. That was the message America should have sent to those who wish to destroy us but instead our conflicted President Obama gave a politically correct speech and made arrangements in advance for ObL’s burial that some claim wasn’t even Muslim but had hijacked the Muslim religion. I can understand Brigitte’s frustration because I still remember the pictures of American soldiers being dragged through the streets in some Middle East Muslim village, the carnage caused by the American-born Muslim Army Major psychiatrist Nidal Malik Hasan at Fort Hood and people jumping from the buildings on September 11th and other lesser publicized atrocities. Radical Muslims have 200 websites or more that spread al-Qaida’s message in English to Muslims in the West. At the close of WWII, our forces stood triumphant on the land and sea and in the air but today our troops are fighting an “army” that doesn’t wear uniforms and uses women and children as shields and which seems to be never ending and now A.G. Holder is pursuing prosecution of the CIA operatives that used water boarding that led to eventually finding ObL. Holder and his ilk claim it is torture and President Obama seems perfectly OK with his pursuing the prosecution on “Constitutional” principles, I suppose.
Hasn’t just about everyone come to the foregone conclusion that the Pakistanian military, the government and the police betrayed us and they knew ObL was living in that million- dollar compound. But confusion enters the picture when we realize Pakistan allegedly supplied a token number of troops in the battle with al-Qaida. Brigitt said the majority of Pakastanies look at ObL as a hero even within the Intelligence community and within the military of Pakistan and a lot of them were informants for ObL and helped keep him hidden.
Brigitte is an Arab Christian, and a victim and survivor of radical Islam during the Lebanese Civil War and says she refuses to stand by and let the same thing happen to her adopted country, the U.S. But when she was invited to speak at the University of Memphis, Muslim students attacked her. So why has America bent over backwards to address Muslim grievances such as prayer rugs at the airports? She says Islamic religious authorities and terrorist leaders repeatedly state that they will destroy the United States and Western civilization and unless we take them at their word and defend ourselves, they will succeed. She also has another New York Times bestseller book: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam. Readers might want to go to her website.
On May 4 President Obama decided not to put on display the picture of ObL’s dead body feeling it would traumatize children and incite some violent backlash and security all over the world seems to have been increased. Everything pertaining to the assassination will be kept under wraps. Could this be another type of cover up by our government of which Americans have experienced many times over the years that causes more cynicism? I’m still perplexed over the Oklahoma City bombing where a seismograph revealed two explosions but only scapegoat Timothy McVeigh was put to death while a mysterious Middle Eastern man disappeared and do you remember how fast the building was torn down?
Our mysterious president who traveled incognido before his election to public office may be at it again. Until Donald Trump came along, the president has had a way of keeping people in limbo over his birth certificate that he could have produced months ago and now we have this ObL secrecy by a president who ran a presidential campaign on transparency. And then there was a February 27, 2011 report in World Net Daily that said “Obama to face Sharia court? Cleric says president ‘must embrace Islam’ or be tried when Muslins take over the U.S. Who is this guy we call president? Most liberals are double minded and confusion is the name of the game. It’s a distraction.
If so many of our young adults don’t know who ObL is, they surely wouldn’t remember how Bill Clinton’s military action twice for the apparent purpose of staving off impeachment in 1998 over the Lewinsky scandal– first in August, with the bombings of Sudan and Afghanistan and then in December, with the bombing of Iraq. Both actions were taken in defiance of the Constitution, but almost nobody but perhaps a few Libertarians seemed to notice, let alone care. President George W. Bush went to the UN for a resolution.
After those two events, the public skepticism was sharpened by the satirical movie WAG THE DOG, in which a President stages a wholly fictitious war with Albania to divert public attention from a charge that he had sexual relations with a young girl. Yet President Clinton, the husband of now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who watched the whole ObL event go down from the situation room, ordered the bombings anyway and according to the media, his approval ratings immediately rose both times. Never mind that as a 60s anti-war protestor the young Democrat Bill Clinton had notoriously lied his way out of the draft and proclaimed his “loathing for the military.” (1) Some of the woman on the silly T.V “View” felt a 2012 election was unnecessary after the President’s daring maneuver to kill ObL and I’ll have to admit, his popularity and his liberal-left Marxist friends are going to be rough to overcome by some Republican.
Rather than bomb his “mansion” and perhaps cause collateral damage, President Obama chose the Navy Seals to literally drop in on ObL. We are assured that it was ObL identified by the woman that was with him at the time as well as others and DNA proves his identify. To his credit, President Barack Obama and his advisers that surround him thought ahead to take pictures and DNA which will remain sealed but for a president that has been weak and indecisive for 2 ½ years, it seems a bit out of character for him to all of a sudden muster the courage to take ObL out.
Now many of our young folks don’t know who ObL is so surely they don’t remember Saddam Hussein, who used chemical weapons even on his own people. He was executed by hanging for crimes against humanity along with two co-defendants. His hanging was publicized and I don’t recall ever reading he had to be buried within 24 hours of death. The January 22, 2007 Idaho Observer pictured eight guys who looked pretty similar. Hussein was notorious for his use of doubles.
Human nature does not change and God has not changed his standards and even though His execution against evil is not performed speedily, His judgment is sure to come eventually. Unfortunately in our day, very few people believe in the judgment of God. Even the Catholic priests are protesting the glee many Americans are feeling about ObL’s death. God has been permitting Americans to go through a period of affluence and even God’s people have become careless. Now many wonder how much longer we are going to survive as a nation? Will we soon be under Sharia law?
Minor prophets Nahum, Habakkuk and Zephaniah had a great deal in common and yet we rarely hear a sermon from them so with the assistance of J. Vernon McGee, who had a world-wide radio ministry, lets write about these three prophets. Each one gives a different facet of the dealings of God with mankind. They show how the government of God is integrated into the government of men. They also show God’s dealings with the individual but Habakkuk was the man with the questions? Like us, he asked, “Why doesn’t God move into the affairs of men and stop the violence, injustice and suffering?” God responds, “Unless man changed his ways, He was preparing a nation, Babylon, to punish Judah and to take her into captivity.” Habakkuk asks “Why will You use Babylon, a nation that is definitely more wicked, more pagan and more given over to idolatry than Your own people – to punish Judah?” God reveals to Habakkuk that He was not through with Babylon but would judge her also.
Books of Romans, Galatians and Hebrew all quote from Habakkuk. Tender-hearted Habakkuk hated to see lawlessness abounding and going unpunished and people being threatened, exploited and destroyed so he asks, “God, why aren’t you doing something about it?” McGee’s translation of Habakkuk 1:5 “Open your eyes and look around. I am not sitting on the fifty-yard line watching this little world. I am very much involved and am moving in a sovereign way in the universe and doing something about sin. One great crisis after another is taking place and suddenly Habakkuk tells God to slow down.”

Within a few weeks, we went from the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the terrible tornadoes in the Heartland killing many people and destroying property and then ObL’s assassination. And in the middle of all this, millions watched on T.V. the Royal family wedding of Catherine and William who have been living together. God will not be mocked. What’s next on God’s agenda –a tsunami on the Pacific coast?
