An Obama Nation: US Air Force Drops ‘So Help Me God’ From Oaths

11/20/2013 2 comments

Given all that has happened and continues to happen under the Obama Administration, I do not believe that this was a simple “editorial oversight” for a minute. We cannot expect God to keep His hand of protection upon a nation when the nation wants nothing to do with God …

Job 20:4-5, “Surely you know how it has been from of old, ever since mankind was placed on the earth, that the mirth of the wicked is brief, the joy of the godless lasts but a moment.”

By Todd Starnes, Fox News – “The Air Force Academy has admitted they removed the phrase ‘so help me God’ from three oaths in the 2012 edition of their official cadet handbook, Fox News has learned.

The revelation came after more than two dozen members of Congress sent a letter to Academy Supt. Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson demanding that she explain why the phrase was removed.

The lawmakers contend the 2012 edition of the Contrails Cadet Handbook excludes the phrase ‘so help me God’ in the Cadet’s Oath of allegiance, the Oath of Office for Officers and the Oath of Enlistment.

‘The Constitution does not require that this phrase be scrubbed from the oath,’ read the letter drafted by Rep. Jim Bridenstein (R-Okla.) and signed by 28 lawmakers. ‘The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the establishment of religion’ however, the inclusion of the phrase ‘so help me God’ in an oath of service does not rise to this level.’

Bridenstein said ‘editing the oath for all Academy students is extreme and unnecessary, and does a disservice to the countless individuals who wish to include the phrase as a solemn reminder that they are pledging their fidelity to God and country.’

Air Force Academy spokesman Maj. Brus Vidal told me the omission was a simple mistake.

‘It was an editorial oversight,’ he said. ‘We learned within the last few weeks there was a problem.’

Vidal said there was no reasoning behind the omission and there was no forethought.

‘Whoever was doing the editing didn’t catch it,’ he said.

He said next year’s edition of the Contrails Cadet Handbook will be revised and will include the phrase ‘so help me God.’

Last month, the Air Force Academy was embroiled in another controversy involving ‘so help me God’ after they decided to make it an optional part of the Honor Oath.” Read more.

News Anchor Siv Kristin Sællmann With The 'Offensive' Cross

‘Outrageous’: Anchorwoman Siv Kristin Sællmann wearing an ‘offensive’ Christian symbol

1 Corinthians 1:18, “The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.” (NLT)

Siv Kristin Sællmann, a Christian, was given the cross necklace by her husband as a Christmas gift in 2012. Coming up at 6:00 on NRK news, the Muslim community in Norway says they are offended that non-Muslims refuse to wear headscarves, veils and burkas …

Pravda – “Popular Norwegian TV presenter Siv Kristin Sællmann was suspended from her job for appearing on air with a cross on her chest. The woman’s appearance on the screen with a gold pendant, decorated with black diamonds in the shape of a Christian symbol, caused outrage among a part of viewers.

Members of the local Muslim community organized protests claiming that ‘a chain with a cross insulted Islam.’ According to them, displaying the Christian symbol did not guarantee the impartiality of the TV channel.

As a result, the director of NRK television channel was forced to hold a conversation with the newsreader, after which she was suspended from her duties not to become a source of discord and crimes.” Source – Pravda.

Malaysia: Historical Cross Torn Down And Discarded To Make Room For A Mosque

11/20/2013 3 comments

Islam teaches that when their “Muslim Jesus” returns to earth he will destroy the cross along with Christianity. And Islamists will invariably jump on every opportunity to give him a head start …

Hadith, AbuHurayrah Book 37, Number 4310, “Jesus … will descent (to the earth)… He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam.”

Malaysia Chronicle – “Shocking disrespect towards one of Sarawak’s most treasured historical figures has come to light, with this image of a Rajah Brooke memorial cross, plucked from its position outside the Governor’s Mansion in Kuching and dumped in a junk heap.

The white marble cross had stood in front of the Astana, as a memorial to three Brooke children, who were lost at sea.

It provided a poignant Christian symbol, with the famous phrase ‘suffer little children to come unto me’ wrapped round its simple stem.

But, now as these exclusive photographs reveal, it has been unceremoniously ripped from its position and dumped lopsidedly alongside discarded junk, as an enormous building renovation gets underway.

At a time when extremist groups have started loudly targeting Christians and other faiths in Malaysia, this careless attitude towards a religious and historical symbol in Sarawak is particularly disquieting.

The militant Islamist ‘NGO’ Perkasa, has just announced it plans to open a branch of its agitator organisation in the state. Imagine the fury of its members if such a desecration had been meted out on a symbol that was held dear to Muslims instead? …

Onlookers have been increasingly amazed at the sheer scale of the ‘renovation works’ that have been taking place in the heart of the capital, on the once green banks opposite the town centre.

The gracious, low-level, colonial-style mansion was built by the second Rajah and is a nostalgic piece of period architecture.

It has already been recently over-shadowed by the high-rise, gold roofed ‘hat’ that forms the new DUN Assembly, built of course by the Chief Minister’s family company CMS.

But, now it appears that it is about to be dwarfed and destroyed by what the signage describes as a new ‘administrative wing’, which looks to be far larger than the original palace itself.

Inevitably, it seems, the new wing will also contain a Surau, a mini-mosque.” Read more.

Nuclear Plant Operator: Fukushima Meltdown Is A Warning To The World, ‘Be Prepared For The Worst’

But let’s allow Iran to continue advancing their nuclear program. Because we all know just how responsible and trustworthy the Iranians are …

By Bonnie Malkin, The Telegraph – “The man in charge of Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has warned that the meltdown of the plant in 2011 contains important lessons for the British government and its plans to build new nuclear power stations.

Naomi Hirose, president of the company that runs Fukushima, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), said the triple meltdown following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan was a ‘warning to the world’ and that Britain’s nuclear industry must be ‘prepared for the worst’.

Speaking to the Guardian, he said that despite what the nuclear industry and the public wanted to believe, nuclear power was not 100 per cent safe.

‘But we have to explain, no matter how small a possibility, what if this [safety] barrier is broken? We have to prepare a plan if something happens … It is easy to say this is almost perfect so we don’t have to worry about it. But we have to keep thinking: what if …’ he told the paper.

Mr Hirose said that small measures could have been adopted at Fukushima that would have prevented the meltdown following the March 2011 tsunami being so severe. He said Tepco was willing to share the lessons it had learned since the disaster with Britain.” Read more.

Your worries about eating cesium-contaminated fish from the Pacific Ocean are grounded in fact, but this is a world-wide disaster of the most epic proportions just waiting to happen.” Read more.

The troubled Reactor 4 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant is at the centre of this potential catastrophe… A magnitude 7 or 7.5 earthquake would likely fracture that pool, and disaster would ensue …” Read more.

An Obama Nation: US May Have Let ‘Dozens’ Of Terrorists Into Country As ‘Refugees’

Liberals and leftists, think about this very carefully. If letting in Muslim refugees resulted in letting dozens of terrorists into the country, doesn’t that mean that Islam just might actually have something to do with Islamic terrorism after all? In today’s harsh world, the sad reality is that there is only one way to absolutely prevent Islamic terrorists from migrating to the country, and it involves barring immigrants of a particular religious persuasion

By JAMES GORDON MEEK, CINDY GALLI and BRIAN ROSS – ABC News – “Several dozen suspected terrorist bombmakers, including some believed to have targeted American troops, may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees, according to FBI agents investigating the remnants of roadside bombs recovered from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The discovery in 2009 of two al Qaeda-Iraq terrorists living as refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky — who later admitted in court that they’d attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq — prompted the bureau to assign hundreds of specialists to an around-the-clock effort aimed at checking its archive of 100,000 improvised explosive devices collected in the war zones, known as IEDs, for other suspected terrorists’ fingerprints.

‘We are currently supporting dozens of current counter-terrorism investigations like that,’ FBI Agent Gregory Carl, director of the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC), said in an ABC News interview to be broadcast tonight on ABC News’ ‘World News with Diane Sawyer’ and ‘Nightline’.

‘I wouldn’t be surprised if there were many more than that,’ said House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul. ‘And these are trained terrorists in the art of bombmaking that are inside the United States; and quite frankly, from a homeland security perspective, that really concerns me.’

As a result of the Kentucky case, the State Department stopped processing Iraq refugees for six months in 2011, federal officials told ABC News – even for many who had heroically helped U.S. forces as interpreters and intelligence assets. One Iraqi who had aided American troops was assassinated before his refugee application could be processed, because of the immigration delays, two U.S. officials said. In 2011, fewer than 10,000 Iraqis were resettled as refugees in the U.S., half the number from the year before, State Department statistics show.

An intelligence tip initially led the FBI to Waad Ramadan Alwan, 32, in 2009. The Iraqi had claimed to be a refugee who faced persecution back home — a story that shattered when the FBI found his fingerprints on a cordless phone base that U.S. soldiers dug up in a gravel pile south of Bayji, Iraq on Sept. 1, 2005. The phone base had been wired to unexploded bombs buried in a nearby road.

An ABC News investigation of the flawed U.S. refugee screening system, which was overhauled two years ago, showed that Alwan was mistakenly allowed into the U.S. and resettled in the leafy southern town of Bowling Green, Kentucky, a city of 60,000 which is home to Western Kentucky University and near the Army’s Fort Knox and Fort Campbell. Alwan and another Iraqi refugee, Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 26, were resettled in Bowling Green even though both had been detained during the war by Iraqi authorities, according to federal prosecutors.” Read more.
