Obama has become Caesar

Reader comment on item: Netanyahu's Steady Hand
in response to reader comment: Common Sense and leadership, What can we do for our country? Not grind it down and dismantle it.

Hi, Anne. You said,

Mike Huckabee and Paul Ryan certainly have the common sense to govern wisely... The Republican CPAC has been full of some very knowledgeable and viable candidates, one must sit and consider what they have done, and how they would govern, specifically less government and less regulations put on the American people. A nation thrives when citizens are not under oppression! The US has never been so oppressed with deceitful people in the White House and in Obama's cabinet, who lie everyday for the cameras.

I like Huckabee and Ryan: They seem like real Menschen -- which is why, in the perverse logic that seems to rule the times we live in, they are unlikely to make it to nomination. Mr. Obama has become such a blatant dictator, running the country through executice fiat, that it dismays me how the American people fail to grasp the fact. The Democratic Party is the equivalent of the Roman "Popularii" who propelled Julius Caesar to the imperial throne. It's simply madness.

I do not plan to take part in the electoral process this round, other than to state my views in places such as this, and to mail in what will probably be a worthless ballot on the election days. I live in a heavily Democrat district in a heavily Democrat state on the West Coast. That means that (1) no matter whom I vote for, I will likely end up with Democrats, and (2) by the time my votes get counted, the winners will already have been declared. Big money is so much in control of both parties, moreover, that I think it would be irresponsible to deprive my family of bread in order to fatten anyone's campaign purse. What I will do is pray, primarily for my brethren and loved ones, that God will keep us through the terrible days ahead.

In reading the international news, one article has shocked me above all, though I must say, it may soon be topped by another. It is:

Post-Gadhafi Libya now a jihadist springboard backed by Iran, Qatar, Sudan and Turkey -- Special to WorldTribune.com

It refers to an intelligence leak from last summer, of a meeting of Sudan's top brass, and intimates the signal intelligence assistance Iran is providing, via Sudanese intermediates, to the Turkish- and Qatari-backed rebels in Libya. This is not the only recent case of the Iranians working hand-in-glove with the Turko-Qatari axis: In Sinai and Gaza, Iranian-supported Jihad Islami has been fighting alongside the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas against Egypt and Israel alike; and of course, Iranian client Hizbullah worked in concert with Turkish-backed Gaza against Israel in 2006. If I list some of the major clients of the Iranians and Turko-Qataris, this ought to explain the matter:

Turko-Qatari Axis:

Turkey, Qatar, Gaza, Sinai rebels, "Libya Dawn" faction in Tripoli, Libya.

Iran & Clients:

Iran, Syria, Hizbullah (in Lebanon), Iraq, the al-Houthi government in Yemen and (covertly) Sudan, with political support from Oman.

If you map these out, you can see that collectively, these two groups (which are covertly working with each other) completely surround Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, Egypt, and the Suez Canal-Red Sea waterway. This would be alarming but not completely dismaying, if the United States were opposed to the Turko-Iranian Axis. Instead, President Obama has been working closely -- not just in the nuclear talks, but also on the ground where Iran has essentially taken control of our "allied" Iraqi army and become our primary fighting force against ISIS. Obama's wooden heads have denied American "coordination" with the Iranians, but the facts speak otherwise: The Iranian Al Qods chief who is leading the Iraqi forces has gotten the red-carpet treatment from our ally (and US-occupied territory) Jordan for (coordination) talks with Jordan's (i.e. the US's) intelligence chiefs. That article is here:

http://www.debka.com/article/24449/Iranian-Al-Qods-chief-on-landmark-visit-to-Amman-as-guest-of-Jordan%E2%80%99s-national-intelligence-director

The Turko-Iranian encirclement I alluded to above, includes ALL the players listed in Ezekiel 38-39:

  • Gog, land of Magog, Gomer, Meshech, Tubal, Beth Togarmah = Turkey
  • Persia = Iran
  • Cush = Sudan
  • Phut = LIbya, particularly Cyrenaica

As I also said, the US is ALLIED with this evil coalition, not opposed to it.
