I have read much of this free e-book, and cross- referenced the bible passages (there are many, many Bible references in this book), and have to say, it's very thought provoking.
Is the 12th Imam (the 'Mahdi' that Mahmoud Ahmedinejad constantly references) the Antichrist?
I do not have that answer, but more and more scholars are exploring this possibility.
Understand also, there is a huge regional, if not global, Islamic movement afoot, disguised as "revolution", that will rid Islam of the current national regimes, allowing the radical religious elements to take over and impose Sharia Law.
And our President is complicit in this.
"No anti-American sentiment".
I tell you, the Progressive/Socialist Left in this country are becoming bolder by the hour.
At the top of Saturday's CBS Early Show, co-host Russ Mitchell cheered unions protests across the country: "Workers uniting. 50 rallies are planned in 50 states today, as organizers show solidarity with Wisconsin state workers, fighting to preserve their right to collectively bargain for benefits and work conditions."
Introducing the segment later, fellow co-host Rebecca Jarvis noted how the protests were organized by MoveOn.org. Rather than accurately label the organization as left-wing, she simply referred to it as "an advocacy group." In the report that followed, correspondent Cynthia Bowers announced that "workers who are coming to these rallies around the country to support Wisconsin workers are being told to wear those red t-shirts we've become so familiar with." The headline on screen throughout the segment referenced Karl Marx: "Workers of the Nation Unite; 50 State Rallies to Support Union Rights."
I swear, I believe that Farrakhan would like nothing better than to see rioting in the streets of the US.
To "Reverend" Farrakhan;
if this does happen, please, PLEASE lead from the front and not from the podium.
Stand in front of the rioting masses, be a real leader.
Put your own life at risk in defiance of this country that you so obviously hate.
Of course, Mr. Farrakhan will never do that.
Oh, he might place a couple of his ever present bodyguards in the crowd to save face, but he himself would never place himself in harm's way.
He is a sheep in wolf's clothing, a coward and an idiot.
I'll be looking for you right out front, Louis.
Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan predicted on Sunday that America faces imminent uprisings that mirror those in the Middle East.
"What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt … Libya, in Bahrain … what you see happening there … you'd better prepare because it will be coming to your door," Farrakhan said in a booming voice, thousands of followers cheering in his wake.
Farrakhan also called on President Barack Obama to allow protesters to march, urging the president not to attack innocent people when they do.
The controversial minster spoke to a packed house at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont as part of the 81st annual celebration of Saviours' Day, which marks the birth of the faith's founder, W. Fard Muhammad.
The keynote address, titled "God will send saviours," capped a weekend of workshops focused on health, preparing for natural disasters and unidentified flying objects. The Nation of Islam believes in a UFO called "the wheel" or "the Mother Plane."
Farrakhan has described a 1985 religious experience in which he ascended into a flying saucer and heard the voice of Elijah Muhammad predicting historical events that came to pass.
For about four hours, Farrakhan spoke and jumped from topic to topic, citing religious texts.
He praised Scientology and its founder L. Ron Hubbard.
Farrakhan extolled the virtues of Scientology and its auditing process, which is considered spiritual counseling by its members.
"L. Ron Hubbard is so exceedingly valuable to every Caucasian person on this earth," Farrakhan said.
"… L. Ron Hubbard himself was and is trying to civilize white people and make them better human beings and take away from them their reactive minds … Mr. Hubbard recognized that his people have to be civilized," Farrakhan said to a cheering crowd.

First and foremost, allow me to say this;
I could absolutely care less what someone's sexual preferences are, as long as it doesn't affect me or my family.
I have mixed feelings about the ability of these persons to be able to perform their duties in a combat unit in some situations, however.
If a homosexual man goes thru the same EXACT training that the non-homosexual men go thru, and can perform his duties in the same EXACT manner, then it probably wouldn't be that much of a problem.
Those are big "if's" however.
I was in the Service in the early 1980's, and knew that there were a small number of obviously homosexual men in the various units. None of them, however, (that I knew of) were in the direct combat specialties I was involved with-Infantry, Airborne, Rangers, Special Forces.
There is a certain mindset in being one of the types of soldiers mentioned above.
You have got to be able to perform in a combat environment to a high degree of proficiency, every single time, without hesitation, without conscience (that comes later). If you hesitate to act, even for a moment, you or your buddy will die.
If, for instance, a situation calls for you to sneak up on a sentry and kill him with a knife, well, that's just the job you have to do. Many times, you have to shoot a soldier, or group of soldiers with no warning in an ambush.
In the of a firefight, there are situations that would ordinarily call for mercy, that cannot be resolved during the fight, that results in the death or wounding of someone who would very much like to surrender, but due to the fact that other enemies present are still engaged in battle, well, it's very often just too bad for the one who wants to quit. No time for mercy when bullets are flying.
These are only very few examples of the kind of mindset a soldier might have to deal with in the thick of battle. Things that have to be resolved immediately, and without remorse, or else you or your buddies will likely die.
With all that being said, I ask;
How many homosexuals do YOU know that would be able to kill a sentry with a knife?
How many would be able to pull the trigger on an unsuspecting enemy in an ambush without mercy?
Engage in furious hand to hand combat and cut the throat or bash the enemy's head in with the butt of a rifle?
Combat is a very intense, extremely violent, personal struggle. Blood, guts, death.
I have been a Nurse for the past 25 odd years.
In that role, I have known a fair share of homosexual males and females.
I will say this- in my personal opinion, with my previous experience as a soldier, probably 90% of the male homosexuals I have worked with would definitely not be able to function in the type combat units in which I served.
And virtually zero of the females, homosexual or not, could make it thru the training.
I will say it again- as long as the individual can make it thru the training, and function exactly the same as the other members of the team, I would have absolutely no problem with a homosexual, or a female, on my team. AGAIN, a definitely huge "if".
The training can NOT be "adjusted" to fit homosexuals, women, or any other group, just to fit a 'politically correct' agenda.
Doing so will get people killed.

The stakes have seldom been higher. With the unemployment rate still above 9%, and federal debt at record levels, this latest error by the monetary authorities is likely to be the most costly since the Great Inflation of the 1970s. Monetary instability will slow employment growth and further erode confidence in government at the same time that higher interest rates will add billions of dollars to the interest cost on the national debt. Yet, failure to act in a timely basis will lead to an even greater crisis.
When it arrives, the Federal Reserve and its defenders will call it “cost-push” inflation and blame it on economic growth, the weather, Arab sheiks, China, and perhaps greedy companies and labor unions.
The actual cause of the looming crisis is the same as the cause of the Great Inflation of the 1970’s: a too easy monetary policy that has devalued the dollar by 40% against gold during the past two years.
The rest of the article;
Higher Inflation on the way

A Union protest in every State capitol
The sponsors of the protests?
The local Tea Party issued a statement today acknowledging the impending protest in Nashville by the Tennessee Teachers Education Association (TEA) , and is setting up counter-protests by statewide Tea Party chapters.
Bring it on, Van.
This ain't Wisconsin.
I wonder.... are Mahmoud & the other radicals behind these protests in the Middle East working with American Unions?
See the story above for more on planned Union protests "in every State Capitol".
He says what he means, and means what he says.
Please forgive me for linking to this ridiculous Progressive website.
Allen West for President
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- Freshman Republican Rep. Allen West—a rising star in the tea party and conservative movements—may have a grassroots movement to draft him for president brewing in his district. The question came to West in a packed town hall meeting in Pompano Beach Monday night.
“We have a president sitting in the White House right now who hates America,” a woman from the audience said. “Who goes around apologizing for America. We have enemies from within from without. Our time is running out … I’m here to ask you to please consider throwing your hat in the ring in 2012.”
After a sustained standing ovation from the crowd of almost 300, West replied: “This is what you have to understand. I believe that we can’t have leadership by a cult of personality. I have to prove myself. I have to prove myself as a statesman, as a capable legislator. Look—everyone knows how I feel about this country. But there are some things that I have to learn about the machinations of Washington DC, so that I can be an effective leader. Because the last thing I would want--you know, my dad raised me with a great maxim--never read your own press never drink your own tub water. It is very humbling that you would say that … right now my focus is on being a great congressman for the people of South Florida. You know, it’s up to God and it’s up to my wife, so you’ll probably need to ask her.”
It was one highlight of a spirited—and sometimes tense—two hour event. One exchange with an attendee over Islam turned into a shouting match among several constituents at the town hall, and escalated when West shot back, “I’ve been on the battlefield my friend--don’t try to blow sunshine up my butt.” He later apologized.
No matter what Gaddafi says or does, his regime's days are numbered.
I firmly believe this is only another piece of the puzzle being put in place, that when completed, will result in the total encirclement of Israel by mortal enemies.
I believe we are witnessing the fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy at an alarming rate.
Again, I urge you to study Ezekiel 38-39;
Author Joel Rosenberg has written a good synopsis HERE
Come what may, if you are a Believer, you must agree that we are closer to the End Times than we have ever been.

And to hear the Obama Administration (and numerous Progressive activists) version, the revolution in Egypt was to herald a freedom unknown by its people.
Instead, the Muslim Brotherhood is saturating the country with once-banned radical Islamic clerics preaching anti-Semits, anti-Western hatred, with the protection of the so-called "pro-western" Egyptian military.
More "revolution" to follow in the Arab world. We are witnessing the resurgence of a unified, radically Islamic region that will crush the stability created by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other moderate Arab states.
Yes, this is so much better, isn't it, President Obama?
Once again, the amateurish Obama Administration has chosen poorly.
The "free" people of Egypt are now being inundated with Muslim Brotherhood clerics once outlawed by the Mubarak regime. (article above)
Be careful what you wish for.......
Former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak refused to respond to telephone calls from US President Barack Obama becase he still felt offended by Obama's statement in which he called on Mubarak "to step down immediately," London-based Arabic language daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported on Thursday.
Mubarak, still living in "presidential style" in Sharm el-Sheikh, according to the report, refused an invitation from Saudi King Abdullah to come to the kingdom, telling him he preferred to die on Egyptian soil.
The report said that it was not clear if Mubarak had been in contact with Egypt's new military rulers through his former deputy Omar Suleiman.

Seems like Mr. Obama is holding firm in his old promise to "stand with the Muslims" in the event of trouble.
It seems to come as no surprise that Mr. Obama has a personal grudge against Israel- research the history of his father and paternal grandfather's activities in Kenya, and add Obama's own words, and soon you will realize that this man has a deep personal hatred of Israel.
The way he personally treated Prime Minister Netanyahu last year during a State Visit should be enough to convince one of that fact, but he continues to pile on.
Now, we are learning that the Administration plans to stand with the so- called "Palestinians" in their ongoing gruge against Israel.
Personally, I am not shocked at this news.
I believe that this is yet another piece of the puzzle being assembled that will fulfill Biblical Prophecy.
Ezekiel chapters 38-39 details a time when Israel will be surrounded by enemies and attacked, and God himself will strike down the attack.
Most Christian Biblical scholars agree that this sentinel event will herald the beginning of the end that is prophesied in the Bible.
Current events in the Middle East are bearing out that soon Israel will be totally surrounded by mortal enemies. Egypt, once a stable force, has fallen, and the likelihood of Islamic radicals taking power is very likely.
Jordan, who shares another huge land border with the Jewish State, is already showing signs of public unrest, and many analysts expect that the same fate awaits them. Indeed, Jordan's leaders have already made moves designed to capitulate to the radical elements.
Once the puzzle pieces fall into place, all that remains is the formation of some sort of alliance, which is also extremely likely, given the talk by most radical Islamic elelments in the region of forming a "nited Muslim Alliance"or "Gobal Caliphate".
I wrote about these possibilities yesterday on this very blog.
Bible prophecy is clear;
Israel will stand alone against this alliance, and will be attacked, with the United States not mentioned at all.
It makes sense to me that by distancing ourselves from Israel like this Administration is obviously doing, Israel will definitely stand alone.
Soon, my freinds.

Muslim Brotherhood cleric calls for "Global Caliphate" and preaches to "kill the Jewish Zionists, every last one of them..."
In January 2009, he said: "Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by [Adolf] Hitler."
The article goes on from there, and describes a man who preaches a very evil, hateful message to his constituents. And to think Jimmy Carter says that the Brotherhood shouldn't be a concern.
Google the phrase "Muslim Brotherhood Global Caliphate".
here, I'll help.
Just a couple of entries off Google.

They freely oppressed this poor woman openly, outside, during the protest itself.
They deserve to have their throats cut.
Not the carotid artery, just the trachea (windpipe), so they can savor it longer.
Sorry if that offends some, but I'm an old soldier.
Female CBS Correspondent sexually assaulted by gang during protest in Cairo
On Friday, Feb. 11, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a "60 Minutes" story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.
In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.
There will be no further comment from CBS News and correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.

Produce prices skyrocket with freeze in Mexico, Southwest | kgw.com | News | Portland, Oregon
Israel knows they will very soon be completely surrounded by enemies, more so than ever before.
The Israeli military is "ready for all eventualities" as the Arab and Muslim world undergoes "an earthquake," Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday just days after Egypt's regime collapsed.
"An earthquake is shaking the whole Arab world and a large part of the Muslim world and we don't yet know how these things will turn out," the premier said at a swearing-in ceremony for new army chief Major General Benny Gantz.
"We are ready for all eventualities because we know that the foundation of our existence, and our capacity to convince our neighbours to live in peace with us, is based on the Israeli army," he said during a ceremony at his Jerusalem office.
Gantz takes over the post as Israel's strategic stance in the Middle East undergoes a shakeup in the wake of a popular revolt in Egypt which ousted president Hosni Mubarak after three decades in power.
Israel has reacted cautiously to the overthrow of Mubarak, an ally who was involved in years of Middle East peace negotiations.
But it welcomed a statement by Egypt's new military ruling council that Cairo remains committed to all its treaties, including its landmark 1979 peace deal with Israel.
Please, read Ezekiel Chapters 38-39.
Israel will soon be surrounded by mortal enemies, once the other Arab states fall (especially Jordan)
And it looks as if the US will not rise to their defence.
Palestinian refugees should capitalise on the wave of popular revolts in the Middle East by massing peacefully on the borders of Israel until it gives in to their demands, Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said on Sunday.
Gaddafi is respected in many parts of the Arab world for his uncompromising criticism of Israel and Arab leaders who have dealings with the Jewish state, though some people in the region dismiss his initiatives as unrealistic.
He was giving his first major speech since a popular uprising in neighbouring Egypt forced President Hosni Mubarak to resign, an event which electrified the Arab world and prompted speculation that other Arab governments could also be toppled.
"Fleets of boats should take Palestinians ... and wait by the Palestinian shores until the problem is resolved," Gaddafi was shown saying on state television. "This is a time of popular revolutions."
"We need to create a problem for the world. This is not a declaration of war. This is a call for peace," he said in a speech given to mark the birthday of the Prophet Mohamed, a holy day in the Islamic calendar.
He also said: "All Arab states which have relations with Israel are cowardly regimes."
Palestinians have long demanded that refugees who fled or were forced to leave in the war of Israel's creation in 1948 should be allowed to return, along with their descendants.
Israel says any resettlement of Palestinian refugees must occur outside of its borders.
Gaddafi also issued a call to Muslim countries to join forces against Western powers. He said the world was divided into white, denoting the United States, Europe and their allies, and green for the Muslim world.
"The white colour has decided to get rid of the green colour," Gaddafi said. "These countries should be united against the white colour because all of these white countries are the enemies of Islam."
He said violent acts committed by Osama Bin Laden's al Qaeda network went against Islam because they killed innocent people. But he said there was a political explanation for the emergence of militant Islamists.
"Why did this movement emerge? Regardless of its behaviour, in my analysis this movement appeared in response to the American arrogance towards the Islamic nation and in response to its hegemony of the Islamic world," Gaddafi said.
"It was a response to ... the submission of rulers in the Islamic world, the subservience of rulers in the Islamic world to this arrogance from Europe and the United States," he said.
Gaddafi has for decades challenged what he describes as Western imperialism. His oil exporting country spent years under international sanctions for seeking banned weapons and sponsoring militant groups.
These were lifted in 2004 when Gaddafi renounced his previous activities, though he still frequently deploys his colourful rhetoric against the West.

Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, announced in a televised address that the president was "waiving" his office, and had handed over authority to the Supreme Council of the armed forces.
Suleiman's short statement was received with a roar of approval and by celebratory chanting and flag-waving from a crowd of hundreds of thousands in Cairo's Tahrir Square, as well by pro-democracy campaigners who attended protests across the country on Friday.
Suleiman also seems to have lost the "powers" that were handed over to him by Mubarak just yesterday.
In his statement to the press, Suleiman said "In these grave circumstances that the country is passing through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to leave his position as president of the republic," he said. "He has mandated the Armed Forces Supreme Council to run the state. God is our protector and succor."
"Finally we are free," said Safwan Abou Stat, a 60-year-old in the crowd of protesters at the palacer. "From now on anyone who is going to rule will know that these people are great."
Free from what?
A dictatorship, perhaps, but the real test comes in the hours and days ahead.
Free from regional stability, defintiely.
My belief is that the religious zealots will begin to make their presence known, and that the Muslim Brotherhood will assume power.
Nobel Peace laureate (and Muslim Brotherhood spokesman) Mohammed ElBaradei, whose young suporters were among the organizers of the protest movement, told The Associated Press, "This is the greatest day of my life."
Today's events ironically fall on the anniversary another fall from power in the Middle East;
32 years to the day after the collapse of the shah's government in Iran.
I've been saying all along that the unrest in Egypt is a flashback to 1979 Iran.
32 years to the day.
Interesting times we are living in.
Should be even more intersting in the days ahead.

(as bad as I hate to admit it, MSNBC seems to have the scoop on this one)
It seems that Mr. Mubarak is sticking to his guns on this one.
There are numerous reports concerning his health, some say he has cancer, and firmly wants to die in Egypt.
Will this development hasten a revolution?
Will the military and/or the Vice President stage a coup to prevent this?
Looks like major changes are happening in Egypt.
The situation looks to be evolving rapidly, and at this time, it appears that the Supreme Military Council is now in charge of the country, with reports surfacing that the newly-appointed Vice President, Omar Suleiman, is set to be named President Thursday night in a televised speech by Mubarak.
It remains to be seen what influence the Muslim Brotherhood will have in the restructured country.
I look at this, and I can't help but think "Iran 1979"-- I remember that extremely vividly.
I hope I'm wrong, but I fear I'm not.

He isn't afraid to say what's on his mind.
Which is probably why he's a pariah to the Progressives.
Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld appeared on Tuesday's Hannity and recounted the harm Newsweek did in 2005 with a false report about U.S. soldiers flushing a Koran down the toilet at Guantanamo Bay.
Discussing the story with host Sean Hannity, he complained, "Later [Newsweek] said 'if part of our story wasn't correct, we apologize.' Of course, the people they were apologizing to were dead. Now, how does that happen?" 15 people died in rioting resulting from the article. Rumsfeld lamented, "Well, I suppose people want to be first instead of accurate and that's too bad."
He added, "Of course, a lie races around the world 15 times before the truth even gets its boots on." Rumsfeld, who was promoting his new book, also appeared on Monday's World News, Nightline and Tuesday's Good Morning America. None of those ABC hosts questioned the ex-Defense Secretary about Newsweek's false story or the impact it had on America.
No matter what, the Left is going to continue to attack our traditional Judeo-Christian values and beliefs.
It angers me that a so-called "news organizations" give such credence to the opinions of someone who has numerous letters in their college degree, while at the same time ridiculing or belittling the opinions of religios scholars, who also have numerous letters in their college degrees.
It's just a sign of the times we live in.
Yes, it's WikiLeaks, but so far, the information has been correct.
I don't agree with Julian Assange's actions in releasing all this Classified information, but it is information, nonetheless.
For many months, I have been perusing a certain website devoted to the concept of "Peak Oil"--which states that we have reached-and have passed-the apex of recoverable Middle East oil reserves, and that there is simply going to be less and less oil to be found there over time.
What will this do to the prices?
They will skyrocket.
Even if the information is only partially correct, we still need to find our own source of oil.
We know that there are some huge oil reserves within the US.
It is high time we tapped into it, and stopped allowing ourselves to be held hostage by the fickle Middle East regimes.

It seems that now, the LameStream Media would have us believe that we don't need Church, or Confession--there's an iPhone App for it instead.
What a load of crapola.
I suppose next they'll create an App so that Evangelicals such as myself can skip the whole "saved by Grace through Faith" thing....
Hmm.... I wonder if there's an App that can Baptize you as well.
Folks, if this isn't sacreligious, I don't know what is.
Our beliefs are under attack and ridicule like never before.

I wonder if she held that same standard to the White House Super Bowl party menu?
The rest of the menu for the 100 or so guests at the White House bash was tailgate-friendly even if served inside the Executive Mansion: bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep-dish pizza and Buffalo wings with sides of German potato salad, twice-baked potatoes and assorted chips and dips.
did Michelle Obama approve of the menu??
Did she partake??

First, watch this video.
Then, research for yourself.
This is really happening.
I believe that the events unfolding in the Middle East are going to usher in a new era-not the "democracy" the people over there, and that the American Media are clamoring about.
The radicals will immediately seize power.
I believe this is their master plan.
