Editorial: What Is U.S. National Interest In Libya?

March 23, 2011 Leave a comment

Libya: As the coalition buckles and the objectives of our Libyan adventure remain a mystery, a neglected question has emerged: Is President Obama surreptitiously reshaping U.S. values?

Last Friday, in an article about how President Obama “turned on a dime toward war” in Libya, Foreign Policy magazine reported on a group of outside “experts” at a White House meeting who were told by “a senior administration official” that attacking Libya was “the greatest opportunity to realign our interests and our values” — a quote “from Obama himself,” according to the official.

Right now, Libya looks like an object lesson in the failure of multilateralism.

The official objective is to save civilians, but the president says Gadhafi must go. The U.N.’s official aim is only “to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas under threat of attack.” Yet 2,200 Marines from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina have been given the mission of “protecting the Libyan people from Gadhafi forces.”

Are we helping the Libyan rebels? “I haven’t had any unofficial communications or official communications” with the opposition forces, the operations commander, Adm. Samuel Locklear, tells reporters.

Who’ll ultimately be running military efforts in Libya?

“This is still being worked in Brussels,” according to the National Security Council. Who’ll pay for establishing a no-fly zone costing $400 million to $800 million, then maybe $100 million a week to maintain? That’s as unknown as Operation Odyssey Dawn’s objectives.

Why Did He Even Bother Running? Obama Leadership Vacuum Menaces Globe

March 23, 2011 Leave a comment

Has any modern political figure ever squandered political goodwill in the manner of Obama—trading near messianic devotion from a hundred million for not even a cup of proverbial porridge in return? His political pratfalls occur only as often as he makes decisions. But even the most hardened Obama backers had to shudder and roll their eyes this week when Barack fixated on college basketball “brackets” instead of ongoing tragedy, chaos and the loss of tens of thousands. It became transparent—in a way in which only disasters bring clarity—that Obama is a boy amongst men, only haphazardly observing history’s progress the way a house cat mindlessly follows a fluttering object.

Basics of the Reformed Faith: The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible

March 23, 2011 Leave a comment

…It is important to understand what the various human writers of the Bible say about the Bible itself. What kind of book is it? What do they testify about it?

The Bible never claims to be an “inspirational” book which grants its reader some sort of spiritual insight or self-enlightenment. The Bible was not given to motivate us to live better lives, or to motivate us to do great things. As we have seen, the Bible is given by God as a testimony to the Word made flesh (Jesus).

The testimony of the biblical writers is paramount. As Paul says in his second letter to Timothy, “all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” Although the term “inspiration of Scripture” is used to describe God’s revelation of himself to us in written form, modern translations of the Bible (such as the ESV) correctly note that the verb which the King James Version famously translated as “inspired” (theopneustos) is better translated as “breathed out” by God. This emphasizes the fact that the various books of the Bible (Scripture) are given to us by God (”breathed out”) through the agency of human authors. This is why in Romans 3:2, for example, Paul can speak of the Old Testament as “the very words of God.”…

A Clear and Present Danger To the Republic

March 23, 2011 Leave a comment

…The President has publicly stated that he knows that Congress, not the President, is the seat of the constitutional war power. His public replacement of the Congress with the U.N. as authority for his presidential actions is a public statement that he has replaced the U.S. Constitution with the U.N. as the source of U.S. presidential authority; there is no other possible interpretation. Our President has here publicly yielded American sovereignty to the international body.

Some quibble that the President already has the power he is exercising in Libya as Commander in Chief. That responsibility provides him the power to defend the country when attacks precede the ability of Congress to act; it is defensive only. Libya neither threatened nor attacked the U.S. No honest argument can support any other conclusion from these facts….

Tsunamis Today, 323, Worry Watchers ~ By Captain Eric H. May

Tsunamis Today, 323, Worry Watchers

By Captain Eric H. May

<captainmay@prodigy.net>

HOUSTON, 3/23/2011 — With aftershocks from Japan‘s 9,0 3/11/11 killer quake still alarming Pacific nations, some will be delighted to discover that FEMA, NOAA, et al., scheduled tsunami drills at least three months ahead of time.

For others, though, the coincidence of a 9.0 Pacific earthquake and tsunami, scheduled to strike near Oregon today in the exercise scenario, is cause for real alarm. They point out that the U.S. HAARP facility in Alaska, able to create super storms and killer quakes, suddenly cranked out incalculable energy from 3/9, when a 7.2 quake struck Japan, through 3/11, when the big one hit.

Will HAARP be participating in todays exercise? Will the CIA, which is part of secretive training at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas this week? For more about the CIA exercise, refer to my article of yesterday, 3/22 Radioactive Questions for Barack Obama. Are the tsunami drills and the Leavenworth drills connected?

There are plenty of question and few answers. Here are the basic official stones:

“Coincidental to the horrific earthquake, tsunami and the subsequent cascading incidents that devastated large portions of Japan this past weekend, the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program Warning Coordination Subcommittee is preparing for a series of preparedness exercises in this country.”


“Tsunami exercise is being conducted to assist tsunami preparedness efforts throughout the Caribbean region. The purpose of the exercise is to improve Tsunami Warning System effectiveness along the Caribbean coasts.”

A Loving Letter

May, are you still feeding off of fear motivation and delusions of how the joos are out to get you? You live for recognition, and when you don’t beat your chest about your qualifications (which suck), someone is doing it for you. In your condition you need the help of a fist. You are sick, Monkey Mind.

The Coup de Grace By Michael Oberndorf, RPA With all of the Marxist legislation being rammed through Congress by the neofascist Obama/Pelosi/Reid cabal, you would think it would be hard to pick the most dangerous one of all. But really, folks, it’s frighteningly easy. It’s the upcoming amnesty bill, euphemistically called by the leftist, globalist majority in Congress, Comprehensive Immigration Reform. More… … Read More
