Ruling Reverses High-Profile Decision by Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor
Racist Supreme Court Obama nominee Sotomayer lost today in the Supreme Court, which narrowly ruled in favor of white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., who said they were denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision by Judge Sonia Sotomayor and others that had come to play a large role in the consideration of her nomination for the high court.
The New Haven case, Ricci v. DeStefano, has become the ruling that Sotomayor's critics most point to for evidence that she lets her background influence her decisions, even though her role has been somewhat inflated. Sotomayor has been overturned 60% of the time by the Supreme Court, clearly showing that Sotomayor does not understand the dynamics of high court decision making, and her racism, thereby disqualifying her as a nominee to the United States Supreme Court.
America must repent, or turn away from its sinful ways and get back to its Judeo-Christian roots which the founders of this once great country instituted and adhered to in the law making process, and let these racist, discriminating law makers occupying congress and the White House and now the American Court system, who work for the people of America, know this in no uncertain terms, and that Americans are fed up with their self serving hypocritical and unconstitutional politics.
Jesus warned that in the last days nations would be against nations, or ethnic or people groups would be against other ethnic or people groups in Matthew 24:7 and this is just another example of what Jesus said would happen just prior to the end of the age.

The vast majority of Ethiopia's 77 million inhabitants depend on subsistence agriculture and have been badly hit by successive infestations of voracious locusts that destroy every plant in their path. More here
The Holy Bible records a horrible locust plague the Lord sent upon Egypt in Exodus Chapter 10:4-19 which destroyed the land of Egypt's herbs and all the fruit until nothing was left because Pharaoh was defiant and refused to let the Lord's people, the children of Israel, go. The Holy Bible also records locust swarms as one way the Lord will punish those who have rejected him in Deuteronomy Chapter 28:36-42 and Amos Chapter 4:9 and Chapter 7:1. Locusts travel in swarms and cause tremendous damage to crops, and can lead to famine and food shortages.
I think it is good to have this public dialogue and perhaps now Mr. Parham himself will read the Holy Bible and discover the truth. Unfortunately, Mr. Parham, took Holy Scripture from my article out of context and circumvented my writing, which is his right, but not the "Christian thing to do."
- Mr. Parham writes:
Unfortunately, too many evangelical leaders have forgotten Jesus great commandment. Jesus did not spell out prerequisites for doing right for one's neighbor. Jesus did not tell his followers that they had to agree with their neighbors about and the source of eternal salvation before they coulkd love their neighbor. Love for neighbor wasn't a doctrinal issue, it was a moral imperative..... American evangelicals seek the common good with American Muslims because it is the right thing to do.
- John 21
1After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.
2There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his disciples.
3Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
6And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
7Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
8And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
9As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
10Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
11Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
12Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
13Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
14This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
15So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
16He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkest whither thou wouldest; but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
19This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
When one has Christ, he will love the one true God and his neighbor as Jesus taught. Jesus said after His Resurrection "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost". Matthew 28:19" That's pretty clear to me, yet Mr. Parham apparently doesn't get it.
Muslims in the Middle East, especially Iran, are leaving islam and have been receiving Jesus Christ as Lord in unprecendented numbers because some American pastor loved God and his neighbor so much, He gave him the Gospel of Christ, and it is Rick Warren's duty as a pastor to do the same, as it is mine, or any other person who calls himself/herself "Christian." "So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God." Romans 8:12
It's time for Rick Warren to present the true Gospel of Christ to the islamic community July 4th weekend and stop tickling ears. If I were a betting person, I would bet Warren won't.

False teacher and purpose driven CFR member and New World Order pastor Rick Warren plans to appear at the Islamic Society Convention, the largest yearly gathering of muslims on the continent in Washington, D.C. over the Fourth of July weekend. Never mind presenting the Gospel of Christ and that all are sinners in the eyes of God, in need of a Saviour and repentence of sin through the blood of God's Son, Jesus Christ. Warren plans on tickling the ears of his audience by discussing "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" according to this article from the Indy Star. Muslims need to hear the Gospel message of Jesus I am the way, the truth and the life, No man cometh unto the Father, but by me John 14:6, and true liberty and the pursuit of happiness is found only in knowing Jesus Christ, without which there can be no eternal life, and not Warren's purpose driven NWO agenda.
The Jewish apostle Peter warned of false prophets and false teachers to be on guard for in II Peter 2:1 and we need to heed the warnings in these dark days that we live in. The Jewish apostle Paul warned that a time would come when men would not endure sound doctrine. II Timothy 4:2-3 reads "preach the Word, be instant in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine. For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear." That time is here.
My comments here caught the attemtion of Robert Parham, executive editor of EthicsDaily.com who also writes a "faith" column in the Washington Post and my response to his attempts to demonize Christian bloggers such as myself and others in his column is written in this post here.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.
Then Peter said unto them, "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

Photos: Democracy Protesters In Naghshe Jahan Square, Esfehan, Iran (Twitpic) below with Iran's Special Police Forces On The Ready
Iran's theocratic and dictatorial regime lead by president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and supreme ruler Ayatollah Khamenei see Iran's revolution against the regime coming and thousands of Iranian Revolutionary Guardsmen are being deployed for crackdown on the opposition.
Wednesday afternoon, June 17, armored convoys of Revolutionary Guard forces began rolling into Tehran from three directions to prevent supporters of the opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi assembling on the fifth day after the disputed presidential election, DEBKAfile's Iranian sources report.
Special IRGC forces and police units are being flown in. Hundreds of opposition activities have been arrested, including some economic experts who criticized president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's policies in recent months, after three reformist politicians, including a former Vice President and adviser to former president Mohammed Khatami, were detained Tuesday.
Nonetheless, a number of demonstrators did turn out Wednesday afternoon and Mousavi defied supreme ruler Ayatollah Khamenei's demand for the defeated presidential challengers to refrain from stirring up more tension, by calling on his website for supporters to gather Thursday to silently and peacefully commemorate their fellows shot by security forces Monday night and protest the rigged election.
Because security forces are expected to block 7th Tir Square, the opposition leader advised his followers to assemble in mosques as well as the streets in mark of solidarity with the victims.
Ahead of a showdown, the authorities have imposed tough new restrictions on foreign press coverage and attempted to block text messaging and the Internet albeit with partial success

If you think this sounds like something the Lord's Apostle saw and wrote about right from the Bible in Revelation, you're right.
We are seeing more headlines in the news today with biblical connotations, and now, plagues of snakes are released with swarms of snakes attacking people and cattle in southern Iraq as the Euphrates and Tigris rivers dry up and the reptiles lose their habitat among the reed beds.
- The plague of snakes is the latest result of an unprecedented fall in the level of the water in the Euphrates and the Tigris, the two great rivers which for thousands of years have made life possible in the sun-baked plains of Mesopotamia, the very name of which means "between the rivers" in Greek.
Doctors in the area say six people have been killed and 13 poisoned.
John, in Revelation Chapter 16, wrote about the sixth angel pouring out his vial upon the great river Eu-phra-tes; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

As the Iranian government officials secretly bury many murdered innocent democratic protesters against Ahmadinejad's radical regime and a government rigged election in Iran, palestinian forces and Hamas are in Iran assisting the government regime in Tehran to put down the protesters, while Ahmadinejad is hiding out in Moscow. Is Moscow and Iran planning a move against Israel now, which will have prophetic implications involving future Israeli wars with her Middle East enemies? This is very likely and we need to be watching these events taking place today in the Middle East and be prepared, walking close to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday two protesters told The Jerusalem Post that Palestinian Hamas members are helping the Iranian dictatorial authorities crush street protests in support of Mousavi, while Obama says there's not much difference between Ahmadinejad and Mousavi. hmm... this pretty much gives a good indication of where Obama stands on democracy and freedom. We are watching the Iranian government murder innocent protesters, and all Obama can say about Ahmadinejad's radical regime is that there isn't much difference between him and his opponent. Obviously, the millions of protesters in Iran believe otherwise.
Continue to pray for the people of Iran and our many brothers and sisters in Christ who are caught in this Iranian uprising.

Arab Map of Palestine without Israel
- No one should be surprised at the palestinian's response to Netanyahu's speech requiring the arabs to recognize the Jewish State of Israel as a pre-condition to a palestinian state:
Palestinian spokesmen said that never in a thousand years would any Palestinian comply. Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak supported this assertion when he accused Netanyahu Monday, June 15, of "scuppering" the Middle East peace process because "no onewill support this in Egypt or anywhere else. Full story
- Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said that Netanyahu's call for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state torpedoed the chance for peace.
"The call to recognize Israel as a Jewish state complicates things further and scuttles the possibilities for peace," state news agency MENA quoted Mubarak as saying, in the first comment by an Arab leader since Netanyahu gave his policy speech on Sunday. Source
Let me get this straight.... Israel is expected to recognize an arab "palestinian" state, but the arabs are not required or expected to recognize Israel as a Jewish state?

Hundreds of Thousands in Iran Protest Vote Result
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. II Timothy 3:1
Sunday, June 14, 2009
Brilliant speech, Mr. Netanyahu! Israel finally has a real leader, but I believe Mr. Netanyahu is still being too easy on these arab palestinians and more stringent conditions must be placed upon their educational system of their children and those neighboring enemy states that breed hatred and anti-semitism in their schools.
Prime Minister Netanyahu said that the descendants of the Palestinian refugees must not be resettled within Israel borders and that Jerusalem must remain united. Israel, he said, would not build any new settlements or expropriate new land for existing settlements
"Let me use the most simple words - the root of the struggle is the refusal to recognize Israel as the Jewish state. The initial Arab refusal was to a Jewish state in any location, before Israeli presence in the West Bank," the prime minister said.
"If we receive a commitment to Palestinian recognition of Israel as the Jewish state and a demilitarized Palestinian state, we can reach a final agreement." More from the Jerusalem Post
Update-No surprise here...
The officials said the speech was much worse than they had expected. They also warned that Netanyahu's policies would trigger a new intifada.

Some analysis seem to think Mr. Netanyahu is now cornered by hawks and Obama, but I don't think this is the case. In fact, I think the Prime Minister now has room to maneuver around on and has the upper hand.
Mr. Netanyahu, as you know, has justifiably so made no secret about being against a 'palestinian state' inside of Israel, which will lead to another Iran sponsored terror state inside of Israel.
It is thought now that Mr. Netanyahu will oblige Obama and agree to a palestinian state, but with certain conditions, including that palestinians first recognize Israel as a Jewish homeland and agree not to have an army.
Mr. Netanyahu, being the wise politician that he is knows that the arabs will never agree to his conditions. In essence, Mr. Netanyahu is agreeing to Obama's demand of the two-state solution to peace publically, he will get Obama off of his back, but a palestinian state will never come about because the arabs will never agree to Mr. Netanyahu's conditions.
Moreover, it would be futile to remove the settlements in Judea and Samaria until the arabs agree to Mr. Netanyahu conditions.

The battle for Jerusalem has begun.
Jerusalem, the capital of Israel,location of the Temple Mount and the site of the first and second Jewish temples, is the holiest site in Judaism and has been the increasing focus of media attention around the world very recently.
For over 3,000 years, Jerusalem, founded by the Biblical or Hebrew Scripture's King David, was the Jewish capital, and Israel first became a state in 1312 B.C. two millennia before islam.
Jerusalem has never ever been the capital of any muslim or arab entity. Jews always pray facing Jerusalem, muslims face Mecca, with their backs to Jerusalem and Mohammed never set foot in Jerusalem. Jerusalem is not mentioned once in the Qu'ran, but mentioned over 700 times in the Holy Bible. The arabs in Jerusalem have been doing all they can do to destroy precious archaeological relics that without a doubt prove the Jewish presence in the land of Israel and particularly Jerusalem before islam.
So why do the arabs want Jerusalem for its capital of another arab state inside of Israel? Because they don't want the Jews to have it.
On May 14, 1948, the Palestinian Jews declared their state of Israel on land given to them under the British Mandate, even though it was only a fraction of the land that was originally allocated to the Jews under the Mandate. One day later, Egypt, TransJordan, Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yeman declared war on the Holocaust survivors and the new state of Israel, and lost, as they have every succeeding war they have started, five in all. What has resulted in the last 60 years is constant terror attacks to this very day upon Israelis and the land of Israel by these arab sponsosring neighbors, even though Egypt and Jordan claim a peace treaty with Israel. The arab states didn't want the Jewish people as neighbors in 1948 and they don't want them as neighbors now.
It can very easily be concluded that the arabs involved in the Middle East conflict with the Jews have no respect for life, not arab or Jew.
In spite of the vast area of land that the arab states occupy in their 22 states, these so called 'palestinians', who are 'palestinian arabs' known as refugees from arab-Israeli wars, all started by the arab states, over the last 60 years, were deliberately prevented from being taken in by their own arab states. They are the only group of people who have been refused by their own ethnic group to take them and integrate them into their own country after times of war. The Jews, on the other hand, have taken in thousands of these arab refugees, and even granted them citizenship of Israel.
So here we are, 60 years later, and nothing's changed with the arabs. And the battle for Jerusalem has now begun.
Watch Jay Sekulow at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israel
"Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about it, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem." Zechariah 12:2 "And it shall come to pass in that day, I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." 12:9
- From Joel Rosenberg's Blog
As I describe in Inside The Revolution in detail, the Lord is using radio broadcasting, satellite TV technology and the Internet to get the good news of salvation to the Iranian people. Jesus is also appearing to many personally, telling them to, “Come, follow Me” — and they are. Iranian Christian leaders tell me they expect more than 10,000 house churches to be planted in Iran in the next 12 to 18 months because Christianity is growing so fast in that country. And the main reasons people are abandoning Islam and becoming followers of Jesus is because of the tyrannical leadership of the country. Starting with the Ayatollah Khomeini, and right up to the present with the Ayatollah Khamenei, such cruel, Radical dictators are causing Iranians to become deeply disillusioned with Islam and eager to search for true peace. They are finding it in the Prince of Peace. So, let us pray earnestly for the Iranian people that no matter who wins, they will choose Jesus Christ, the King of kings and the Lord of lords this year.
He removes kings and setteth up kings. Daniel 2:21
While Obama is busy fabricating a new American heritage and rewriting America's biblical Judeo Christian heritage in speeches praising islam in muslim countries such as Turkey, declaring that America is not a Christian nation, and in Cairo proclaiming the insane idea that America is one of the largest muslim nations, and the athiest ACLU and left wing extremism in America's court system is working overtime to remove the name of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible out of America's spiritual heritage, there is finally one man elected by the people among all the wimps in Washington with the courage, but most importantly the willingness, to speak the truth. Virginia's Congressman Randy Forbes has done his homework on America's Judeo-Christian heritage and is sponsoring a bill designating the first week in May as “America’s Spiritual Heritage Week”, which will make America's Judeo-Christian heritage official.
The "Spiritual Heritage” bill includes a long list of congressional actions that testify to how and when Judeo-Christian principles have shaped the nation, from Congress approving in 1777 the distribution of Bibles for schools and families throughout the states, to the law passed by Congress in 1954 adding “one nation under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance.
Forbes said he first introduced the act in the 110th Congress, inspired by the sacrifices made by the Founding Fathers and the self-serving nature of today’s politicians. But President Obama's remarks made during his tour of the Middle East have renewed Forbes’s determination to preserve America’s religious heritage, the congressman said. At an Apr. 6 press conference with Turkey’s president, Obama said secularism is what makes America great. "That's something very important to me," Obama said. "And I've said before that one of the great strengths of the United States is- although as I mentioned we have a large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Jewis nation or a Muslim nation; we consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."
On May 4, Forbes introduced the House Resolution 397 in the House of Representatives and spoke about it on the House floor on May 6. "When our Constitution was signed, the signers made sure that they punctuated the end of it by saying, "in the year of our Lord, 1787." Forbes said. "And 100 years later in the Supreme Court case of Holy Trinity Church v. The United States Supreme Court indicated, after recounting the long history of faith in this country, that we were even a Christian nation. Full story here

Excerpt from Obama's June 4 Cairo speech:
"And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."
From the Sky News story,
- Soon after news of the fatal crash broke, agents working for the DGSE (Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure), the French equivalent of MI6, were dispatched to Brazil.
It was there that they established that two names on the passenger list are also on highly-classified documents listing the names of radical Muslims considered a threat to the French Republic.
- A source working for the French security services told Paris weekly L'Express that the link was "highly significant".
Agents are now trying to establish dates of birth for the two dead passengers, and family connections
- France has received numerous threats from Islamic terrorist groups in recent months, especially since French troops were sent to fight in Afghanistan.
- Security chiefs have been particularly worried about airborne suicide attacks similar to the ones on the US on September 11, 2001.
One thing we do know for certain about this horroble disaster is that you can count on the media to botch, print dis-information and spin their stories to cover up the truth.

Now that the deadline has passed, a private security team will be brought in to physically boot the arabs within the next 23 days. This is a very big issue because over 100,000 arabs are squatting and living illegally on Jewish owned land in key sections of Jerusalem that the arabs want for their 'palestinian state.' Perhaps this is another big reason King Abdullah of Jordan and friends are in such a big hurry to force Israel into a bogus peace deal. Watch the world cry fowl. Read about it here

Moreover, Israel needs to tell the United States that the Saudis depend upon American forces and military to protect its kingdom and if the Saudis do not cease blackmailing Israel into accepting a bogus Saudi 'peace' deal to give up its land, and make peace with Israel immediately, America should remove all its troops that protect the Saudi Kingdom, which costs far more than Israel gets in financial aid from America. The Saudis and so-called moderate arab states of Egypt and Jordan are literally scared stiff of Iran controlling the Persian Gulf area when they acquire the bomb and they need to ally with Israel to fight the Iran, Hezballah, Hamas axis of evil.
