In hindsight, it is often difficult to believe that the American people could have handed the US Presidency to a man like Barack Hussein Obama. But, since hindsight is 20/20, we’re now beginning to realize why God allowed it to happen. He knew the end from the beginning, and what is happening today is all a part of His plan. No matter what has transpired yesterday, or what has yet to transpire tomorrow, God remains in full control …
Proverbs 19:21, “Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.”
Daniel 2:21, 4:17b, “He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning … the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.”
Investor’s Business Daily – “The Obama Record: After angry Egyptians pelted her motorcade with shoes, chanting ‘Leave!,’ Secretary of State Clinton insisted the U.S. wasn’t there to take sides. Too late.
‘I want to be clear that the United States is not in the business, in Egypt, of choosing winners and losers, even if we could, which of course we cannot,’ Hillary Clinton intoned earlier this week.
Of course, the administration could, and it did, picking and even colluding with the Muslim Brotherhood. And one of its hard-liners, Mohammed Morsi, now sits in the presidential palace, where he refused to shake unveiled Clinton’s hand.
This administration favored Islamists over secularists and helped them overthrow Hosni Mubarak, the reliable U.S. ally who had outlawed the terrorist Brotherhood and honored the peace pact with Israel for three decades. The Brotherhood, in contrast, has backed Hamas and called for the destruction of Israel.
Now the administration is dealing with the consequences of its misguided king-making. Officials fear the new regime could invite al-Qaida, now run by an Egyptian exile, back into Egypt and open up a front with Israel along the Sinai. Result: more terrorists and higher gas prices.
In fact, it was Hillary’s own department that helped train Brotherhood leaders for the Egyptian elections. Behind the scenes, she and the White House made a calculated decision, and took step-by-step actions, to effectively sell out Israel and U.S. interests in the Mideast to the Islamists.
The untold story of the ‘Arab Spring’ is that the Obama administration secretly helped bring Islamofascists to power. Consider this timeline:
2009: The Brotherhood’s spiritual leader — Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi — writes an open letter to Obama arguing terrorism is a direct response to U.S. foreign policy.
2009: Obama travels to Cairo to deliver apologetic speech to Muslims, and infuriates the Mubarak regime by inviting banned Brotherhood leaders to attend. Obama deliberately snubs Mubarak, who was neither present nor mentioned. He also snubs Israel during the Mideast trip.
2009: Obama appoints a Brotherhood-tied Islamist — Rashad Hussain — as U.S. envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, which supports the Read more…
By Dr. Philip Brodie, INN – “Sports lovers around the world are eagerly anticipating it. The 2012 sports-fest called the Olympics is about to begin. In some countries, TV stations will broadcast Olympic events round-the-clock—or so it will seem.
The world loves sports.
This summer’s Olympic Games will not disappoint. They will be exactly like so many other recent Games, only more so: more coverage, more pictures, more competition, more celebration– and more security. A lot more.
It may not be enough.
The star attraction for this year’s Games will not be swimmers or runners. It will be Jews. By Olympic sports standards, Israel is a micro-player. But she will stand at stage-centre during the entire Olympics.
Israelis may win no medals, although they have high hopes. But every morning, sports fans around the globe will start their day with the same question: did anything happen to the Jews overnight?
The Games—the terror Games, that is—have already begun. A week before the Olympic opening ceremony, a bomb went off inside a Bulgarian tour bus carrying Jews. Six were killed, five of them Jews, many injured. A Muslim terrorist group called Ka’adat el-Jihad claimed responsibility for the killings.
In case you forgot, the Islamic holy month of Ramadan coincides this year with the Olympic Games. That’s an important juxtaposition because, as the killers who blew up that Bulgarian bus declared in an email, this year’s Ramadan could become for Muslims a month of Holy War and violence.
If Westerners—fans or athletes–are killed as the entire world watches the Games, this Ramadan could become unique: Jihadists will call it the month that Holy War became world-famous.” Read more.
Report: Israel Fears Islamist Terror Attack At London 2012 Olympics – “Israeli officials have warned that an Iranian terror squad in Europe may be planning to attack its athletes at the 2012 Olympic Games, sparking the largest security operation in peacetime Britain, The Sunday Times reported… The Mossad, says the Sunday Times, ‘is hunting a group of white Europeans who are thought to have converted to Islam and to be working with the Iranian Quds force and Hezbollah, the terrorist group backed by Tehran. ‘One of the Israelis’ targets is thought to be a terrorist carrying a US passport under the name of David Jefferson, who is believed to have fled after the Burgas attack’ and ‘is thought to have another powerful device’ like that used in last week’s bombing, said the report.” Read more.
‘We in the joint command of the Free Syrian Army inside the country know very well the locations and positions of these weapons,’ Syria’s largest rebel group said in a statement.
‘We also reveal that Assad has transferred some of these weapons and equipment for mixing chemical components to airports on the border,’ it added.
The move comes just one day after the embattled regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad warned it could use unconventional weapons if attacked by “an outside force.”
Analysts say, if true, that moving the weapons is likely a bid by Damascus to pressure the international community, which is at loggerheads over whether to intervene in 16-months of slaughter in Syria.
Western powers and their Gulf Arab allies have called for an end to Assad’s reign, and pressed for comprehensive international sanctions or even direct intervention.
Russia, with billions of dollars at risk should Assad fall, and China, a major consumer of Syrian oil, have shielded Damascus on three separate occasions at the UN Security Council.
‘According to our information, the regime began moving its stocks of weapons of mass destruction several months ago, with the goal of putting pressure on the region and the international community,’ the FSA said.
The rebel group, comrpised of over 30,000 Syrian army defectors commanded by dissident officers who fled to neighboring Turkey, has also reportedly formed its own special unit to secure Damascus’ chemical weapons stores.
The United States on Monday issued a sharp warning to Damascus that it should not think even ‘one iota’ about using chemical weapons.” Read more.
Perhaps this is the real impetus in Iran’s indelible thirst for nuclear power. Only gamma rays can truly counteract the detrimental effects of women’s hair …
The government’s offensive this year has been marked by the stationing of mixed-gender teams of morality police in Tehran’s main squares.
In recent weeks, 53 coffee shops and 87 restaurants have been closed in Tehran for serving customers with improper hijab or for other gender-related offenses, such as permitting women to smoke hookah pipes. Concerts have been abruptly canceled because of inappropriate dress and too much contact between male and female fans. Approximately 80 stands at an international food fair were closed last month because, officials said, the women working at them were either breaking hijab rules or wearing too much makeup.
Those arrested face up to two months in prison or even lashing, penalties that have been on the books for years but have rarely been imposed. The aggressive enforcement and stiff penalties have spawned resentment.
Iran’s sex cops have this weird belief that uncovered hair releases ‘sex rays’ that drive men wild. One of the strange beliefs of the Islamic religious bigots is that men are not responsible for their conduct when it comes to an impulse to make a sexual assault.” Read more.
Flashback: Tough On Crime: Iran’s ‘Morality Police’ Ready To Tackle The Growing Problem … Of Nail Polish – “Some 70,000 female police officers will be on the lookout for women dressed inappropriately on the streets of Iran in the rising summer heat, daily Vatan reported. Female police officers will be responsible for detecting and warning women who fail to dress in line with the moral code of the Iranian authorities. Officers too will be dressed in black burqas, and will be instructing Iranian women on how to cover themselves the right way. Routine hand checks will also be conducted to prevent any use of nail polish.” Read more.
Flashback: Iranian Cleric: Women’s Clothing Causes Earthquakes – “A senior Iranian cleric says women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes… “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes,” Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media. Women in the Islamic Republic are required by law to cover from head to toe, but many, especially the young, ignore some of the more strict codes and wear tight coats and scarves pulled back that show much of the hair.” Read more.
PA TV host: “Artist Abd Al-Hai Msallam has been dealing with the Palestinian nation’s problems, such as the Gaza massacres. What have you been working on lately? This painting is about the Gaza massacre.”
Artist Abd Al-Hai Msallam: “Here I show the people, the children, and the Zionist enemy’s cruelty and savagery.”
[The painting shows a monster impaling children on his bayonet and eating them one by one. On the lower right, dead children are piled up to be eaten and two baby monsters are also shown eating children. The three monsters wear skull caps with a Star of David. The scene takes place in the monster's underground lair, just under cacti that are growing on the surface. A Star of David is also painted on the lock of the lair.]
Host: “Do you believe that if something happens, the Iranians will take simultaneous action?”
General Ahmad Mansouri (Ret): “Both Iran and Syria will take action. Don’t forget that President Morsi said: ‘We heed the call of Islam! We heed the call of Arabism!’ with regard to the revival of the joint Arab defense agreement. The Egyptian military will not leave the powerful Syrian Arab army alone in the battlefield. This may be a good opportunity for Israel to learn that when Egypt and Syria unite, the end will be like in the days of Saladin. Moreover, the US must never forget the humiliation and harsh lesson that it was taught in the days of President Carter, when Iran humiliated America for 400 days in the US embassy affair. The US must never forget this lesson. It must never forget how its airplanes and helicopters collided. Today there is a fourth version of the Sejjil missile… Back then, a large barrage of missiles rained down upon US forces, humiliating and terrorizing them in Iran. Let’s not forget that.”
Host: “I’d like you to clarify that point, which comes as a surprise to me and many others. I think that you find this surprising too. So you’re saying that if Israel targets Syria, the Egyptian army will take action? Is this your assessment, or are you hoping that the Egyptian armed forces will not abandon another Arab army? It should be noted, with all due respect, that wars did take place over the past two decades, and that Israel did target an Arab land, in Lebanon, as well as pummeling Gaza, yet the Egyptian army did not intervene. It seems that this time you are promising us something else. Is this wishful thinking, or is it based on information, and on your assessment that the Egyptian army may intervene?”
General Ahmad Mansouri (Ret): “What happened in the past will not happen again. President Mohammed Morsi said at Tahrir Square and elsewhere: ‘We heed the call of Islam! We heed the call of Arabism!’ The joint Arab defense agreement will be activated, Allah willing.”
Islamist Organization CAIR Demands Defense Department Fire Ex-Muslim Iran Expert (Because He Tells The Truth)
WND – “WASHINGTON – A former Iranian CIA operative, now an expert lecturer with the Defense Department, is being targeted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim Brotherhood front group, because he ‘renounced Islam and began the quest to find the real God.’
CAIR, based in Washington, D.C., is calling on the Defense Department to fire Reza Kahlili, a frequent contributing writer to WND, in part, a press release from the group states, because he became a Christian and revealed his change of faith in a commentary in WND.
‘They actually cite my change of faith as a principal reason for targeting me,’ Kahlili told WND in a phone interview. ‘I thought once I left Iran for America I wouldn’t have to worry about that kind of persecution.’
Khalili uses a pseudonym and guards his anonymity because of death threats he faces from The Islamic Republic of Iran.
Among the other reasons CAIR says it wants Kahlili driven out of the Defense Department is because of his documented revelations that:
Iranian agents are ‘coordinating operations out of [U.S.] mosques and Islamic centers’;
Iran already has nuclear weapons; and
Iranian agents have infiltrated the United States through the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Students Association.’
CAIR, unlike almost any other organization in the public eye, has been associated with a disturbing number of convicted terrorists or felons in terrorism probes, as well as suspected terrorists and active targets of terrorism investigations.
‘Their offices have been a turnstile for terrorists and their supporters,’ said one FBI veteran familiar with recent and ongoing cases involving CAIR officials.” Read more.

By Mathews Ndanyi and Janet Yego, allAfrica – “The government will vaccinate livestock in Kerio Valley where a disease outbreak suspected to be East Coast Fever has killed more than 1,300 animals in three weeks. Bernard Mwenga who is in charge of Disease Control at the Ministry of Livestock says they are waiting for test results on the disease’s identity before beginning the exercise. The outbreak has been reported in Marakwet East and West, Pokot Central and East Baringo districts all located in the Kerio Valley.
Marakwet West district livestock and veterinary officer Dr Joseph Keying confirmed that the outbreak has been reported in the region but could not give details on the number of animals that have died. ‘The symptoms indicate the disease to be East Coast Fever. We have sent officers to the ground to establish the situation before we put in place control measures,’ said Keying.
Yesterday Mwenga said they feared the disease could affect the livestock and meat market hence the decision to carry out the vaccination. Keying said the disease is spread by ticks especially during the rainy season. The valley has experienced heavy rains in the last few month. East Coast Fever is prevalent in East and Central Africa. The ticks host the parasite responsible for the disease. Indigenous cattle are more resistant to the disease than their foreign counterpart.
However reports from Kerio indicate that both have died from the mysterious disease. ‘It is unfortunate that farmers have lost livestock. They ought to be sensitised about control measures,’ said Keying.” Read more.
Saturday, a Patch reader submitted the attached photos and expressed some concern about the dead fish.
‘I went fishing this morning back behind the abandoned boy’s military school off Grand and all along the shoreline for at least a mile there were thousands and thousands of dead Shad all over the place,’ Eric Ritchie said in an email.
Additionally, during a town hall meeting Wednesday night at Lakeland Village School, a resident voiced her concern about the lake’s odor caused by the die-off.
But Lake Elsinore Mayor Brian Tisdale told the audience assembled at the school this week that Shad are very sensitive fish that can easily succumb to sudden temperature change. He pointed to an earlier heat wave this month that was followed by a cool spell, and now more hot weather.
Tisdale said the aeration system in the lake hasn’t changed, and the Shad die-off is something to contend with when the weather causes abrupt temperature flux.
In April, Lake Elsinore had a similar Shad die-off. Then Interim City Manager Pat Kilroy said, ‘Shad are sensitive,’ and tend to be the first species hit when changes occur in the lake.” Source – LakeElsinore-Wildomar.Patch.com.
Residents and a spokesperson for the Maryland Department of the Environment speculated that the fish kill could have been caused by low oxygen in the water and high temperatures, a condition sometimes referred to as a red tide…
‘It’s been bad for the last two weeks,’ waterman Craig Kelley of Ridge said…
When fish die like that, Kelley said, they first sink to the bottom where they stay for a few days. As they bloat the fish rise and begin to float. Depending on the wind and tides they can wash up on shore, he said.
Dead, rotting fish are useless as bait, he added.
There are crab pots scattered throughout the river off the shoreline in Piney Point and three large pound nets used for catching fish are nearby.
According to one woman visiting friends at Piney Point, more than a mile-long stretch of beach along Lighthouse Road was littered with dead fish between 6 inches and a foot long.
‘There are just dead fish everywhere,’ she said.
Roman Pausch of Tall Timbers was visiting his parents who live along Lighthouse Road.
‘This is more than usual,’ he said Thursday morning while taking in the scene. ‘This seems like an awful lot.’” Read more.
By Z Ali and Sajid Bajeer, The Express Tribune – “MITHI / HYDERABAD: The Sindh Wildlife Department believes that the peacocks which died in Thar were suffering from ‘Ranikhet’ or Newcastle Disease, which is a fatal and contagious virus found among birds, including chicken. However, blood tests of sick and dead peacocks have yet to be conducted.
Although no exact figure for the dead peacocks is available, the residents of Mithi say that more than 50 have perished within a week across half a dozen villages. The ones which have died in the forest or were eaten by animals have not been included in this figure.
Over a week after the birds started appearing ill, chief conservator Saeed Akhtar Baloch visited those villages in Mithi which reported the highest incidence of deaths.
‘If we had treated the peacocks in time, many of them would not have died,’ he admitted. He has also suspended assistant conservator Lajpat Sharma and game officer Ashfaq Memon for showing negligence.
He added that a team of vets from the Poultry Development Department will come to Thar on July 23 with medicines so that the ailing birds can be cured.
Earlier, vets from the livestock and poultry departments said the peacocks had been suffering from an acute deficiency of vitamins and minerals.” Read more.
