ISIS Finds Saddam’s WMD’s

3TPREUTERS TV/REUTERS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi stepped into the world spotlight via a 21-minute video of a surprise sermon he gave a week ago in Mosul, one of the Iraqi cities his fast-moving group, ISIS, has captured.

During the Iraq war the left wing media did a pretty good job in attacking George Bush’s incurrence there saying he lied and there were no WMD’s there and thousands died. Well everyone said Saddam had them. Germany said he had them, France said he had them, Great Britain said he had them, Saudi Arabia said he had them. Everyone said he had them, so how is Bush lying?  I remember the military saying how they found 500 tons of Sarin gas that Saddam used to kill millions of his people and they  shipped it here to be buried somewhere yet the mainstream anti conservative, anti-republican, pro lib socialist/communist media said Bush lied.

And now we find out, that there was in fact an entire Saddam WMD complex, seized now by the ISIS that was known about, with bunkers full of deadly WMD’s/Chemical weapons, and it’s been sitting there all along.  The UN stored tones of highly deadly nerve agents like sarin and VX and blister agents like mustard at Al Muthanna between 1994-96–and sealed the compound to be dealt with later. But still intact are two huge bunkers with the WMD in them. The bunkers are sealed with reinforced concrete, but they are in the hands of ISIS. The nerve agent in the bunkers will by now have degraded to a toxic ‘sludge’ but the mustard will be viable. Rightly, British and American governments have played down this event to prevent panic in Iraq and elsewhere.

 The Saudis are warning both the Americans and the British to stay out of this, as it has become a civil war and terrorists are turning on each other.

Here is what we do know. When the American military was in place, NONE of this genocide was occurring. I guess the only potential winner here is George Bush?  And perhaps  the Conservative movement.

Meanwhile Iran enriches large quantities of uranium at an alarming rate. Some experts suggest that the rogue regime could break out with a nuclear weapon in a matter of weeks, and produce 50 to 100 nuclear weapons by 2024. And Obama has reduced our nuclear facilities and military to pre-WW11 levels.

The goal of radical Islam is world domination and they are succeeding. Obama thought you could just end the war and pull out without any consequences. While we were in there we built schools and office buildings for the people, gave them infrastructure and taught them about democracy. Women could hold jobs and be in government. We were training the army there to resist anti- freedom intrusion. This takes years to accomplish which is why we still have troops in many countries today. Obama pulled out and ISIS ( the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) led by the terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who Obama let out of GITMO in 2009, took over conquering city after city destroying everything we did, beheading  anyone who disagrees with him and putting the country under Sharia law again. The Iraqi army we were training has surrendered to them like a bunch of wimps.

When Abu was let out of GITMO he told his guards “See you in New York.” Now we find that ISIS has been in contact with the drug cartels in Mexico and there are warnings that the next attack in America will be bigger than 9/11.  We have also found prayer rugs and Korans on the Mexican/U.S. borders so more than just Central America and Mexicans are crossing over. There are also numerous sleeper cells in this country now too and slowly, but surely they are drawing their plans against us. Who knows what they are planning. Obama has been giving money and arms such as tanks and jets to the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt and has Muslim Brotherhood members in his administration. The recent declaration of a caliphate by the militant group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is an unprecedented event in modern times. Regardless of how it turns out, one thing is clear: Violent jihadism is now an entrenched feature of the Arab political landscape and may soon be here

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

 

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

I just returned from seeing the blockbuster hit this summer Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and found it to be a captivating and extraordinary epic and piece of work. It wasn’t on my must see list since I hadn’t seen the first one which was on cable earlier last week, but went anyway with my friend who did see the first one and loved it. You don’t really have to see the first one to appreciate this one.

This series has no resemblance to the Charlton Heston ones of the 70’s except in name only. The story centers around the human race having been mostly wiped out by a virus scientists created and some people who are separated from apes in a city. The Apes live in the woods and people in the ramshackled destitute city. It has been ten years since any encounters with Apes and the apes wonder if any humans are left. The apes are led by a super ape named Ceaser and his pregnant wife and teen son. They communicate thru signing like deaf people do with translations on the bottom for the viewer, although they can speak some rough English.

The people in the city led by Gary Oldman,  who I like a lot, needs power from the dam which is held by the apes.  A small group of explorers volunteers to go and negotiate with the apes who hate humans. They succeed in convincing Ceaser that they mean no harm and just want to use the power from the dam. Ceaser reluctantly agrees. Another ape named Koba disagrees with Ceaser and convinces the other apes that Ceaser is friends with the humans and riles the other apes against Ceaser. During a planned distraction he manages to shoot Ceaser and blame it on the humans so a war begins.

The humans manage to find Ceaser and bring him back to health whereapon he tells them that Koba is responsible. What follows is an action filled fight to the death between Koba and Ceaser that is a sight to behold. The story leaves you open for a sequel of course. Andy Serkis, the British actor who played the computer generated Golum in Lord of the Rings  does a superb job here as Ceaser.

The computer graphics are spectacular and the apes look and act like real apes in their mannerisms  as opposed to people dressed in ape costumes and make–up like in the Charlton Heston series. For good escapism and a rousing storyline with lots of action and emotion see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Check out the two  trailers I listed below. ;)

The Planned Destruction of America by Obama and Co.

Obama-the-King

obama-speech-e1342050505906

 

AmericaTombstone

Obama-in-Apocalypse-Now--56325

Remember when Rahm Emanuel told Obama to “never let  a good crisis go to waste because it gives you a chance to do things you normally could not do?” Well ever since he took office, Obama’s administration has been one crisis after another which he creates and then denies and covers up with a new crisis when things get hot so we forget the previous one.

First we had Fast and Furious with sending thousands of guns to the drug cartels in Mexico under the auspices they were trying to see who intercepts them and said Bush did the same thing. The only thing is under Bush all the guns were recovered as they had GPS systems in them. When things got hot and people demanded Holder’s resignation, suddenly the NSA scandal erupted with the government spying on its’ citizens phone calls, e-mails, texts and other electronic communications all stored for 90 days in that giant building in Utah.. Obama claimed he didn’t know about it until he read about it in the newspapers. We also had Obamacare then with him saying what is now known as the lie of the century saying “if you like your plan you can keep your plan and if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” Meanwhile 5 million plus people lost their insurance and doctors and the administration said they knew this would happen as far back as 2010.

 Then came their scandal with the IRS  spying on Republican and pro life and pro Isreali groups denying them funds to publicize their messages and advertise during an election year.Obama said he didn’t know about the IRS and NSA scandals until he read about them in the newspapers. When the people became enraged at that suddenly Benghazi explodes. Obama was nowhere to be found during that time and blamed it on a you- tube video which was later proven to be false and the filmmaker spent a year in jail at Obama’s orders. He should sue the government.

 Just when that scandal was at its’ height and Obama seemed in trouble along comes the VA scandal. After a few days of that suddenly Obama exchanges five of the most dangerous terrorists in the world for this deserter Bergdahl. At the same time Obama withdrew our forces from Iraq and  ISIS takes over conquering city after city, burning buildings and schools we built and undoing everything we did to bring these people up to the 20th century and proceeded to put everyone there under Sharia law again. The ISIS group are led by a terrorist Obama freed in 2009 who told his guards “See you in New York.” Now they  are heading towards Saudi Arabia which is predominantly Sunni and then Mecca.

 As people complained about Obama pulling troops out too soon all of a sudden we have this border crisis with tens of thousands of illegals (including  gang members  like MS13 coming in here and recruiting)  bringing in all sorts of diseases such as tuberculosis, measels, leprosy, lice and other communicable  diseases. Obama has pledged 4 billion dollars for the relief of these immigrants which has incurred the wrath of Jesse Jackson and the black community that voted for him. Jackson said the 4 billion should be used to combat violence in Chicago which is a better idea.

 Yes Obama said he was going to transform America and has made no apology for his distain  for America. He has said he would side with the muslims and everything he does goes to them. He’s freeing radical muslims from GITMO and given a billion dollars to the muslim brotherhood in Egypt along with 200 Abrams tanks and 14 F-16 jets.  He’s  committing  impeachable offense after impeachable offense and should be tried and convicted, but no one raises a finger to do anything. Clinton was impeached for lying about sex for God’s sake.

 Yes Rahm Emanuel was right.”Never let a good crisis go to waste because it allows you to do things you normally couldn’t do,” like destroying America.

Check out the comment below from a commenter to an article I read and also Ray Steven’s song about illegal immigration which is more  true now than when he originally did it a few years ago.

TexanForever • 8 hours ago

Obongo the Marxist Muslim isn’t intelligent enough to put all this together all by himself. Vallerie Jarrett et all are the ones calling the shots to bring down the USA in just eight critical years.

There are plenty of dots to connect. Remember the financial disasters, the housing debacle, the destruction of Chrysler and sell-out of GM, the trillions of dollars of new debt, the destruction of the currency with presses running 24/7, gun running to the Mex, cartels via Fast & Furious, and on and on through Bengazi, IRS spying, establishment of an armed Homeland Security Gestapo, reduction of the Army to pre-WW2 levels, giving away hard-won Iraq to ISIS, hanging Israel out to dry, replacing a top quality health system with Obamacare, Ignoring/bypassing Congress and the Supreme Court with presidential directives, and now erasing the borders entirely to the point where we are no longer a nation. He paid homage to the Saudi king, kissing his ring. … A brother Sunni.

These are the dots. Connect them and you have a usurper closet Muslim fighting Jihad from within. … Why are all of his records sealed? … Why is his Social Security number that of a man who died long ago in a state he’s never lived in? … Why in hell can’t (wont?) others see it? … It’s out there in plain sight.

Is This the End of Times?


signs of the end times

This is a bit of a departure from my usual commentaries but, it’s something I think about often. First of all I am not one of those long haired, bearded, white robed people holding a sign saying the end is near nor am I a bible thumping preacher nor am I here to convert anyone, but I am from a strong Christian upbringing and faith. That being said I have noticed certain things prophesized in the bible are indeed coming true.

When I was a little kid in the mid 1950’s I remember having a discussion with my mother and grandmother about the end of the world. They told me that the book of Revelations in the bible foretold certain signs that would happen before the end of times. They also told me that the world would be destroyed by fire. The signs they told me were: 1) Fruits and plants blooming out of season. Could this be the climate change we are experiencing now? 2) Wars and rumors of wars. Besides Iraq and Afghanistan and Isreal and Palestine there are 50 smaller wars going on now with lesser known countries that are not being reported. 3) Remarkable inventions,  I think  the rapid advancement of technology such as the internet, smart phones, with all the apps and texting bringing people closer together is in itself  a remarkable invention and I’m sure you could think of many more. 4) People moving place to place a rapid rate. With the super trains and super jet travel you can fly from the United States to England in just a few hours now and don’t forget men have walked on the moon now.  5) Great strife in the Middle East. This is self explanatory now. Although the Middle East has always been in turmoil since the biblical days it has never been in the state it is in now with Isreal and Palestine firing rockets at each other. They also told me that the anti-christ would appear and be from the Middle East and he would be a great deceiver and well liked and would rule for seven years. I have heard people refer to Obama as the anti-christ since he is supposedly from Kenya and Indonesia and is a great deceiver and well liked as he deceived people about himself and his true positions on things making us into a socialist/communist country. He is in his sixth year now. 6) Children rebelling against their parents. Well that has always happened ,but the bible also fortells of an increase in violence and immorality. Today, the world is FULL of violence and sexual immorality. You only need turn the tv on and you will see violence, fornication and homosexuality everywhere. The cities of the world today are especially bad and are no longer safe places to be. 7) One main religion in the world. The goal of Islam is world domination and now Islam is fast becoming the leading and major religion in the world beating out Christianity.  They also said a few other signs I can’t remember now.

As far as the world being destroyed by fire, at the time I was thinking  about a comet hitting the earth as I read the earth can fit inside the tail of such comets or maybe the earth falling off its’ orbit and into the sun like the famous Twilight Zone episode, but now I think that refers to nuclear war as more and more rogue regimes like North Korea and Iran get a hold of their nukes and threaten to destroy us while Obama, proceeds to disarm us. I recently heard a general say all a country with a nuke has to do is launch a missile from international waters with a nuclear warhead and explode it 100 miles above us and the sheer vibration would knock all our grids out and millions would die.

World Net Daily has been running a series on the Four Blood Moons or lunar eclipses that are occurring this year and next. This year and next year in 2015 there will be four lunar eclipses which some believe will enter in the end of times. Like I said I’m a good Christian, but  not a head for the hills type, but you can’t deny certain signs that are foretold in the bible.  Signs such as changes in the weather, earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis, wars and rumors of wars, the middle East in turmoil and on fire all are biblical prophecies. All these signs, coming together at one time, are potentially the culminating signals that God is closing this chapter of human history,” declares pastor Mark Biltz, author of the brand-new book and DVD, 

“This could be the final curtain call before the Great Tribulation mentioned in the Bible. God has always wanted to warn His people, and the rest of the world, before He intervenes. What better way to communicate to us than through the universal language of heavenly signs that speak to every tribe, tongue, and nation?”

In the Old Testament, the prophet Joel states, “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” (Joel 2:31)

In the New Testament, Jesus is quoted as saying, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light … And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” (Matthew 24:29-30)

“Four total lunar eclipses happening the next two years herald possible war in the Middle East as well as global economic collapse,” he told WND.

He says historically, these types of solar eclipses have been signs, foretelling important events such as the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem.

“Two happened right in a row at the time of destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. and on feast days,” he said.

“Around eight months before the Temple was destroyed we find on 10/18/69 there was a partial lunar eclipse on the Feast of Sukkot. A total solar eclipse followed this on Nisan 1-3/30/70, the beginning of the religious year. Two weeks later there was a penumbral lunar eclipse on Passover on 4/14/70. An annular solar eclipse followed this on Rosh Hashanah on 9/23/70. Then another penumbral lunar eclipse on Sukkot on 10/8/70,” he explained.

Biltz stresses what makes the coming events so startling is the fact they’ll take place during the Feast of Passover and Feast of Tabernacles in consecutive years.

This has happened only eight times over the last 2,000 years!” Biltz said. “And the last two times these occurred on the Jewish holidays there was a war in the Middle East regarding the nation of Israel. These are patterns and historical facts that cannot be disregarded. The Jewish Talmud records that total lunar eclipses are indicators or omens for the nation of Israel.”

The April 15 eclipse marks the start of a lunar tetrad. That event occurs when there are four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six full moons.

A book out last year, Four Blood Moons: Something is about to change, suggests the event could be a fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

In it, John Hagee writes that the red disks of the moon during the full eclipses are referred to in the book of Joel 2:31: “The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.”

The other three eclipses of this lunar tetrad are on Oct. 8 of this year and then April 8 and Sept. 28 of 2015.

As of 16th April 2014, there were around 3,500 earthquakes happening a month. (Link)

Jersey Boys-The Movie

Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys Poster.jpg
Jersey Boys is the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. It’s the quintessential rags to riches story. It’s about real people and stuff that really happened, families and brothers breaking up and the rise and fall of the band. Being from New Jersey and their area myself, only in a nicer section, :)  I saw the Broadway show which was fantastic and looked forward to seeing the movie especially since it was directed by Clint Eastwood I knew it had to be a superb job.

The film follows their journey from beginning in the late 50′s and early 60′s up to 1990 being inducted in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. I grew up listening to the Four Seasons since their beginning and still have some of their  albums from then. The story is told thru the eyes of the individual members via asides to you the audience. Tommy Devito was the founder of the group.  He, Nick Massi and Frankie Valli real name Francis Castelluccio were tough street punks from New Jersey’s rougher neighborhoods in Newark and Belleville. Tommy was the roughest of the bunch and a very street wise tough smart alek type.  My wife kept channeling Leo Gorcey from the Bowery Boys. :D The band started out as a trio playing bars and clubs in the late 50’s and early 60’s. Later on Joe Pesci (Yes that Joe Pesci the current actor) introduces his friend Bob Gaudio to the group. Bob takes a liking to Frankie’s sound and introduces himself and offers to write songs for them. They start singing as The Four Lovers and then change the name to the Four Seasons after seeing the name in the neon sign of a bowling alley.  It is here that the friction starts between the rough talking in charge type Tommy Devito and the more refined, sophisticated, business oriented Bob Gaudio. They do accept Gaudio into the group and the rest as they say is history.   The film does an excellent job of recreating that period and you actually think you are there right down to the urban Italian culture they grew up in. Some of the asides are interesting and humorous too. When they meet Bob Crewe who is their producer and has effeminate  mannerisms   Bob Gaudio turns to you and says, “I knew there was something strange about this man, but then again this is 1959 when people thought Liberace was theatrical.” One night while at Bob Crewe’s house they are watching a Kirk Douglas movie where he slaps a woman.Tommy says  “I bet you she cries.” to which Bob Crew replies,”Nah,big girls dont cry.” At that moment Bob Gaudio looks up and raises an eyebrow and the next thing you know they are singing “Big Girls Dont Cry ” on stage. :)  John Lloyd Young is superb as Frankie Valli and sounds exactly like him. Young was the original Frankie in the Broadway show when it first opened up. Vincent Piazza is Tommy Devito who is still around today at 83 years old as is Bob Gaudio 72, played by Eric Bergen and Frankie Valli who is 80. Nick Massi died from cancer in 2000 at age 72. The only person I didn’t care for was Christopher Walken as mob boss Gyo DeCarlo who took a liking to Frankie and helps him out. I thought Walken looked the part but was very wooden and just seemed to walk through his part. The rest of the cast is excellent through and the music is recreated to perfection. Any fan of the Four Seasons should see Jersey Boys. I’ve included some interesting links from the movie and an interesting interview with Tommy Devito.

Scandal and cover-up =The Obama Administration

angry-obama

Have you noticed that every scandal with the Obama administration is designed to cover up from the previous one? First we had Fast  and Furious with running guns to the Mexican cartels that resulted in two border guards being killed. Then we had Benghazi to cover that one up. Then we had the NSA scandal to cover that up. Then we had the IRS scandal to cover up the NSA spying. Then we had the VA scandal to cover up that scandal.  Then we had the Berghdahl trade to cover up that one, but the VA  scandal  persisted and still persists.  Now we have the influx/invasion of illegals coming in here and the other scandals are fast being relegated to the back pages.

Obama is having more scandals than Clinton did and everyone is criminal. He should be tried and convicted and put away in prison for a long time, but being president I’m sure he is immune. He said he was going to transform America and although I was angered at those remarks I’m sure most people didn’t realize what that transformation was about.

Obama hates America having been brought up to hate it from his training in Kenya and 20 years in Rev. Wright’s church hearing  his  “G—D—America” speeches week after week. Obama has admitted that it’s not right that we are the No,1 country in the world and related statements. He has members of the muslim brotherhood in his administration and sides with terrorists. He even admitted that in the beginning of his term. Remember this statement: “I will side with the muslims if the wind should take a different direction.”

The recent debacle in Iraq is a direct cause of his pulling troops out quickly without thinking of the consequences.  You don’t just pull out in a war, you leave troops behind to help guide the new government and keep them stable like we did in Germany, Italy and South Korea after those wars.

In Iraq they were establishing a democratic government and a close ally to us.  Women were able to get jobs and serve in the government there, we built schools and roads and new buildings for them. Now that Obama pulled out, all that is lost. The terror group ISIS is talking over city after city and putting everyone under sharia law again. They bombed everything we built for them. I don’t think sending 300 troops to protect our embassy there will do any good. It’s all smoke and mirrors like with everything else this administration does.

So all that was in vain all because Obama pulled out without realizing  the consequences.  Well what are we to expect from having a president who hates America and never held a job before this except being a community organizer and a senator for six months where he only voted “present.”

And the American people voted for this “great destroyer,” as David Limbaugh’s book title says, twice. America you reap what you sow!!!!

REO Speedwagon In Concert

REO%20Speedwagon1REOSpeedwagon 1REOSPeedwagon4REOSpeedwagon2REO 1280px-REO

REO Speedwagon (originally styled as R.E.O. Speedwagon) is an American rock band. Formed in 1967, the band cultivated a following during the 1970s and achieved significant commercial success throughout the 1980s. Hi Infidelity (1980) contained four US Top 40 hits and is the group’s best-selling album, with over ten million copies sold.

The band was first formed by Neal Doughty who is the lead singer and plays guitar, piano and synthesizer and is the only original member starting in 1967. Other members include Kevin Cronin lead vocals and rhythm guitar 1976-present ,Bruce Hall bass guitar 1977 –present, Dave Amato lead guitar and vocals 1989 –present and Bryan Hill drums 1989 –present.

Most people are familiar with their mainstream hits such as “Take It On the RUN” (I heard it from a friend who / heard it from a friend who / heard it from another you were messin’ around), “Keep on Loving You” and “Can’t Fight this Feeling,” but hearing them on the radio doesn’t do it justice as hearing them in person.

 I was very much surprised at seeing them as I didn’t realize they were like this. I was expecting a soft rock band and was pleasantly entertained.  Although they are mostly played on soft rock stations their music in person is hardly that. They are loud, but extremely energetic and more hard rock with heavy emphasis on long guitar licks and jumping around on stage. Their drummer Dave Amato is one of the most hard driving, energetic drummers I’ve seen in a long time who doesn’t stop and moves with lightning speed. When they burst into their hit songs which you can hear below they are rocked up and louder and really gets your heart pounding and hands clapping even inviting the audience (which I found very well behaved and appreciative) to sing along. They had an impressive back drop that appeared to be a paved road going thru some sort of tunnel with small lights giving the impression of perspective. My wife thought it reminded her of something out of Star Wars. 

Lead singer Neal Doughty is a charming and interesting fellow who is very lanky and wirery with a full head of white hair that stops short of the neck and has a very distinctive voice that can best be described as  a husky, high pitched, nasally, mid western accent sound. He’s constantly smiling and looks like he’s saying, “Gee I’m glad you’re here tonite” as he tells humorous stories about himself and the band throughout the years. The band is from Champagne, Illinoise.

At one point Neal sounded like a rebel rousing crowd instigator as he inspired people to never give up. He refers to his band as “the self appointed Kings of classic rock” and said, “It wasn’t easy to become the self appointed kings of classic rock. When we started people said we wouldn’t make it and to turn back, but we persisted and here we are today and you can do it too.” He also praised America and said , “This is America  and we don’t turn our backs on anybody.” While he says all this the band is playing softer in the background with a heavy drumbeat really motivating everyone.

The three front men Neal, Kevin and Bruce constantly brought out new guitars to play from double neck to single neck. They changed guitars faster than Cher changes clothes at her shows. :D  ( If  anyone  has seen Cher performance in person or on TV you know what I mean.)

REO Speedwagon  is definitely  a fun and entertaining group to see.  If you are a concert goer like my wife and I are be sure to check them out if they come to a venue  near you.
