A Blog Post On Israel

AubreyJ said in a comment on a previous posing that, "I'm still waiting on you to put up a couple of posts on North Korea and Israel.
Love to hear your take on all this mess....".

Here now is the second installment AubreyJ. I was going to put them into one post but the first half got rather long. - We'll see how the second one goes...

Before I get started on this I would like to explain a bit about the term covenant. The marriage vows we have today are the closest thing we can compare to the old time covenants. The two become one, everything they have becomes the property of the other, promises to protect care for, etc... - Becoming blood brothers is covenant making. Livingston, in going through darkest Africa, made his way through by having blood covenants with tribal chiefs as he met them. Each covenant would protect him as he traveled towards the next tribe. The ceremony might be different from place to place but each covenant maker puts their lives at the disposal of the other. Trust is paramount. Breaking the covenant was unthinkable.


Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May those who love you be secure.
May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels."

- Psalm 122: vs 6&7 -


We need some Muslims to read that and believe that the Living God meant it. Then they need to tell their buddies and so on. It is God's desire for peace in Jerusalem and indeed all of Israel. What stops this prayer from the book of Psalms becoming reality is that there are people in this world that refuse to believe that God did indeed give a piece of property to one man for him and his chosen descendents.

~~~~~ Genesis 13: vs 14-18 (NIV) ~~~~~

14 The LORD said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, "Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west. 15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. 16 I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. 17 Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you."

18 So Abram moved his tents and went to live near the great trees of Mamre at Hebron, where he built an altar to the LORD.
~~~~~ and Genesis 15 vs 18-21 says ~~~~~
18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, "To your descendants I give this land, from the river
of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates- 19 the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, 20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites."


After this it gets a bit complicated. Abram had two children. One, the first son, with Hagar, his wife's servant. (Genesis 16) Sarah, does not have any children and the prospects of having any gets rather dim. She was 76 and Abram 86 when she demanded her husband, Abram try to have a child with Hagar, her handmaiden. The child would have legally been Sarah's. Remember this was prior to the 10 Commandments being given to Moses. Ishmael is born and God rejects him as the recipient of the covenant God had made with Abram (Now called Abraham)

- Ishmael is 13 years old when: -

~~~~~ Genesis 17 vs 17-22 ~~~~~

17 Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, "Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?" 18 And Abraham said to God, "If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!"

19 Then God said, "Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. [d] I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year." 22 When he had finished speaking with Abraham, God went up from him.


Enough of history. It turns out today that we have two sets of Abram's/Abraham's children fighting one another. Both want to claim the promise of property God gave to Abraham. Both want to be the recipients of God's covenant with their father. Both have completely missed the true purpose of the covenant. There was a promise mixed into all of it of a better way to really know God. Not to just know ABOUT Him but to KNOW Him in a real and personal way. A promise to become God's true children related to Him in a real and tangible way.

~~~~~~ John 1 vs 10-13 ~~~~~

10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God - 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.


Paul Billheimer said of this scripture that in and through Jesus Christ God the Father realizes his paternal longings.

The majority of the Jews and the Moslems have missed this. Many Christians have missed this too. Hence the fighting. "We are all God's Chillun", as the saying goes. But this is only true for those who have joined into the real Blood Covenant which was fulfilled when Jesus died and rose again.

As for today's most recent developments in the Middle East and specifically Israel and Gaza I think that it would be best for the U.S. to just back out and let the two go at it.

I believe the property Israel won in the 6 Day War was won fair and square. Israel was attacked and fought back. Their enemies lost property. Israel should have kept the property but instead gave it to a peoples government that will not be satisfied with the gift. They will never be satisfied because they are missing the only thing in life that can truly satisfy the Inner man. That is a relationship with the Creator of all that exists.

A solution to the Middle East problem? Wait for the Second Coming. - Can we do anything to hurry up the day? No, so trying to start Armageddon is foolish and will not work. Pray for Peace in Jerusalem even though it looks hopeless? Yes, because the Psalms instructs us to.

A Blog Post on North Korea

AubreyJ said in a comment on a previous posing that, "I'm still waiting on you to put up a couple of posts on North Korea and Israel.
Love to hear your take on all this mess....".

Well here is the first installment AubreyJ. I was going to put them into one post but the first half got rather long...

North Korea - This country is one of the saddest examples of man's inhumanities to man. A huge segment of the population is in slavery to a government that is more horrendous than any U.S. plantation prior to the U.S. Civil War. The rest are simply toadies. I've heard it said that if a citizen of North Korea tries to run away to the south or north to China and is captured they wrap a wire around their clavicle (easily found on any starving body) to use as a leash to bring them back to their work place. (It is not known what happened to the North Korean woman the link above tells of. The link is to show the heartlessness of the Chinese Government concerning North Korean refugees.)

The left in the U.S. has been interjecting into their anti war rhetoric for quite a while, "Why Iraq"? Why did we go after Saddam when we have dictators all over the world then they cite Iran and North Korea as examples. Part of their harangue makes it appear that they are really concerned about the peoples of Iran and North Korea when in reality it is just a smoke screen for their "Hate Bush" tirade. - They could care less about the peoples of all three countries and really just want more monies spent on social programs as opposed to the military ventures, the U.S. under Bush, has undertaken.

I'm taking book on the World Governments going after these fools that threaten neighbors, run their countries into the dirt and send uncontrollable rockets willy nilly. This will be undertaken without the criminal riddled U.N.'s approval.

The world cannot afford to have these crazies getting their hands on weapons that indiscriminately kill civilians because they could and will be used against any country's civilians that is within reach. This messes up economies and ruins the tax bases. Not to mention some countries have leaders that really do care about human lives. (U.S. included despite what the loony left says.)

As soon as the good guys do go after the heartless dictators the "Progressives" will howl with anger and show they begrudge freedom for the peoples of each nation for their own self centered social welfare funds. - - - Pitiful group of humans the "Progressive Liberals" are composed of. - - - Fortunately they do not speak for the majority of those in the U.S. regardless the polls the left continually takes. Europe (especially France) is another matter.

I wish it would be sooner rather than later that the leaders and the armies of toadies of these counties are taken out. Real people are suffering in North Korea and Iran too. Many Iranians in the U.S. are looking forward to our ousting the current Iranian government. Not many North Koreans are in the U.S. to look forward to the ousting of Kim Jung Il. See previous note about the wires. When the time comes for booting the North Korean dictator I certainly hope China will stay out of the way. If China interferes with setting the North Korean peoples free it certainly will cause more unnecessary deaths in a country that has already seen too much suffering at the hands of a socialistic/communistic government.


Below is a portion of the Earthlights picture that shows the Korean Peninsula Notice the lack of lights/electricity in the North while there is an abundance in the south.

I hereby challenge any lefty to tell the world that socialism/communism is a good thing. Don't tell me that this example is not the one to use. This is ultimately the extreme that socialism runs all of mankind down to. If socialism were allowed to run rampant through the world then man's inhumanities would run rampant too...


Lord - Please bring freedom to the North Korean peoples in what ever way you see best. - Amen

Why Socialism?

I'm at a loss as to why those on the left think socialism is the way to go.

If an armed man went into a socialist's house and demanded, ummmm, say all the appliances in the house. Told the socialist owner of the appliances that they were to go to a 'needy' family down the street. Would the socialist really be proud and joyful that they can contribute to the needs of others?

I doubt it. They are going to be ticked off that their appliances are stolen from them no matter the reason.

The same premise holds true for taxes. The socialists in this country want higher taxes to help with the social welfare programs. This is tantamount to having an armed man come into a persons home and stealing their property.

The conservatives are called all kinds of mean and nasty names and spat upon because they don't care about the needs of the poor. Wrong. Conservatives prefer a different way of handling the problem. The old 'teach a man to fish' solution.

Help lift the poor up instead of keeping them held to a below poverty level which is what social welfare programs do.

Blog Roll Check!

I try to run through my blog roll every day. Don't always get to do it but mosts days I hit the majority of them. I have yet to delete any blogs from my blogroll but I did recently take down a long list of names that were from "Hugh Hewitt inspired blogs". The reason being that quite a few were dead links or had not been updated in over a year... I tried contacting the originator of the list but was met with zero help. So it goes. - This made my sidebar a bit emptier but now it is easier to check my blogroll. -

Thought I'd list a few of the stories/posts from my blogroll that I found interesting:

New Rosemead Times has this quick read on Jimmy Carter and the KGB - "Recent KGB documents show Jimmy Carter as a man obsessed with a hatred of Ronald Reagan. This hatred extended to asking the KGB for help."

You can visit Mark at 1or2thoughts and leave your ideas on the Supreme Court's recent decision re: Gitmo. My comment/answer did not quite satisfy him. What is the check against judicial imbalance? - "[N]o court, justice, or judge shall have jurisdiction to hear or consider an application for a writ of habeas corpus filed by or on behalf of an alien detained by the Department of Defense at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba."

Even if that were not clear enough, the Constitution confers the role of Commander in Chief for the President and requires the Senate's approval for treaty ratification both of which have been appropriated in this case. So Con Law professors, what is the check against judicial imbalance?

Ted Richardson has a piece entitled "If Someone Promises to Fix Your Credit - Proceed with Caution!" - Whether it be on a telephone pole, classified advertisement, or a spam e-mail, we all see "advertising lures" that promise to repair people's bad credit. Many of them are bogus - and the sad fact is - they target people, who are already "needy" and take more of their money. -

AubreyJ's reminder of the Possible Chemical Production Facility that hit the news then dropped from the radar. Is it part of the 500 WMD's report that was presented by Rick Santorum?

Senor Peer Pressure of Huffington Compost has a great posting, Praise Korea, Bash The U.S., about the HuffPo's coverage of the North Korean missle launches vs. the Shuttle launch. - It really shows the anger and hatred of the "progressive Liberals" for all things America and George Bush. (Caution: Some quotes from liberals are profane! As usual...)

The last I'm posting is from WebLoafer over at Sanities Bluff - "Let's Talk About Hate" - A picture post with commentary about where the hate really eminates from in this great and wonderful country. -

Sorry to those of you I missed - I have to get to work. - You all have great blogs going and I hope you continue on in this new means of getting your thoughts and opinions out there for the world to see. - Carry on!

Laptop Found! Data On Veterans Not Accessed!

I found this story sort of late and had not seen or heard this bit of news till today. - It hit the street on 29Jun06 - So I figure there might be others like me that missed it.

As a veteran I'm not sure if any info with my name attached was on the dang thing but it did make me feel a bit uneasy...
~~~~~ has this on the stolen laptop that contained data on up to 26.5 million veterans and military personnel.


WASHINGTON (AP) --The government has recovered the stolen laptop computer and hard drive with sensitive data on up to 26.5 million veterans and military personnel. The FBI said Thursday there is no evidence that anyone accessed Social Security numbers and other data on the equipment.

The FBI, in a statement from its Baltimore field office, said a preliminary review of the equipment by its computer forensic teams "has determined that the data base remains intact and has not been accessed since it was stolen." More tests were planned, however.

...the laptop and hard drive were turned in Wednesday (Jun 28, 2006) to the FBI by an unidentified person in response to the $50,000 reward offer. No suspects were in custody

prying1 sez: This shows that security needs to be beefed up and more care needs to be taken by those with access to data that could ruin peoples happiness, joy, and sanity. - Not to mention pocketbooks. This laptop was just a drop in the bucket of personal information that is stolen and abused. - I suggest people keep up on what the bad guys are up to by visiting Fraud, Phishing and Financial Misdeeds at least weekly if not daily! -

RadioBlogger Pulls All the Stops out!

Headlined, "It's not what you say that defines if you are good or bad, it's what you do." RadioBlogger goes after Bill Keller of New York Times fame. You know. The paper that does not care if what they print causes grievous bodily harm to people.

Concerning the NYT and LAT revelations of the NSA foreign surveillance program Duane shows why Keller knew what he was doing was wrong.

- Quotes:

You know, it's funny how someone can say this is no big deal, we didn't do anything wrong, and yet he agonized over the decision to print.

But while all this controversy is swirling around the judgment of Keller and the New York Times, you'd think if there was a close call on something involving the Bush administration, he's error on the side of caution, at least until this current debacle blows over, right?

Not Keller. Not the New York Times. Exactly a week after they release a classified government program, in which the Justice Department ought to be considering prosecution over, Keller puts a story in this last Friday that makes one's jaw drop. Keller ran a story about the second homes of Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. And not just a story about them, but where they are, including pictures. I'm not kidding. It's like a jihadist map to the stars' homes.

- end quotes -

prying1 sez: This joker, Bill Keller, is being defended by the tin foil hat lefties which only goes to show that the "Hate Bush" crappola has gone so deep into their hearts that they may not ever be able to return to being Americans again. I think they may be permanently brain damaged. Can they honestly believe that this will not have a negative effect on the war against terrorism?

Oh, that's right. They call It "Bush's War" and because they don't like some classified information remaining classified they have every right to reveal it.

It's for our own good they tell us. - They know better than the Pentagon what is really going on because they read, "Alternative News Sites".

Remember this come the next election. Would you prefer Michael Moores Minions running things?

Click the link for more of RadioBlogger's excellent piece and if you have not stopped you subscription to the NYT and LAT please do so.

"But I do not have a subscription to either of them", you say.

Well check the list below and see if there is a way you can hit them in the pocketbook. - Be sure to let them know why you are canceling.

An Inconvenient Fact about "An Inconvenient Truth"!

Once again all I had to do is take my common sense and sit for a while. I knew that AlGore's movie was bunk even before Bill Clinton came along and started hyping it. Is Bill gettin' commissions from box office sales? Whhoooowee! Will that make him a bundle! At least an extra 10 bucks a week... Just enuff to take his gurlfiend out to the picture show. That is if she opens the back door for him to sneak in and she buys the popcorn.

Anyway. I thought to post a blog on AlGore's incontinent Unconventional Unreliable Supposed Truth Movie long before now but said to myself, "Self! Just wait. Someone will come along and distill the whole thing into easily understandable sentences that even 'Progressive' liberals will understand. Then just link to his site (his/her site for the PC crowd)."

Here it is! Fresh from a brand new addition to my blogroll! ***Burkean Reflections*** - An Inconvenient Fact: "There's No Consensus on Global Warming"

Some highlights follow:

- Mr. Burkean Reflections himself, Donald Douglas, quotes and credits Richard Lindzen with the following:
According to Al Gore's new film "An Inconvenient Truth," we're in for "a planetary emergency"... -
Bill Clinton has become the latest evangelist for Mr. Gore's gospel...
Mr. Gore assures us that "the debate in the scientific community is over....
Mr. Gore defended his claims...that scientists "don't know. . . . They just don't know."...
Donald Douglas states: "There has been considerable debate over predictions of the greenhouse effect. For one thing, it is not entirely clear that industrialization on a worldwide scale will have a warming effect on the global climate."
~~~~~~ endquotes ~~~~~

prying1 sez: I for one did not spend my money foolishly. Apparently there are fools in this world willing to believe the not so old maxim, "AlGore said it, I believe it, that settles it!"

AND some spend money to go see it and find it deeply moving!

Comment to Steven Frein of A Day in the Life / Iclectic Podcast (see link above) who stated, "It is a simple concept that he is trying to get across. If we do not do something about global warming, then the world as we know it may cease to exist. It is not a question of "if it will happen", it is a question of "when it will happen."
The answer is simple. Make AlGore ruler of the world and Bill Clinton his court jester. Make everyone in the whole world send ALL their money to AlGore and he will change the weather patterns forever and ever, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, forever and ever...

Not to mention controlling volcanoes. They can sacrifice Hillary in 'em!

Update: Rich Glasgow of Isn't It Rich has posted on the same subject with the same link to Richard Lindzen's article - Pretty good opinions Rich has. Of course I can say that because he agrees with me...
