“Mr. Obama’s continued pursuit of romance with the Islamic world, little short of abasing both himself and his country, isn’t winning him a lot of points from Muslims at home. … The special pleaders are clear about the price they exact for returning Mr. Obama’s respect and attempts at affection. They define ‘progress’ as withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan, shutting down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay at once, ‘protecting’ the civil rights of Muslim Americans, and compelling the Israelis to commit suicide. Do all that, Mr. President, and we’ll love you — maybe for a whole day. But eventually you’ll probably have to put Michelle in a burqa.” –Washington Times editor emeritus Wesley Pruden

It is an interesting observation by Mr Pruden. The continual erosion of US rights, ideals, unique culture, and position of global prominence will result in the lessening of the US domestically and globally. As bad as things are currently for the US, it is still 1/5th of the global economic consumption. There are some [like billionaire George Soros] who are interested in the US becoming ‘less than’. They want the US to give way to international political and religious demands being made upon the current US executive administration and radical liberal supporters. What is not considered by these movers, shakers, influencers, and activists is the results in history from similar activists. The would-be conquerors become the conquered. So, it is not a bad question asked by Mr Pruden. Ms Obama should expect a burqa if the tolerated trend continues.

National Day of Prayer Usurped in hopes to not offend: Why has the current USA Executive Administration done this?

In 1952 President Truman established one day a year as a”National Day of Prayer.”

In 1988President Reagan designated theFirst Thursday in May of each year as the National Day of Prayer.

In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama declared that the USA “Was no longer a Christian nation.”
[Note: The USA never was a ‘christian nation.’ It has historically been heavily populated by those who follow the Christian faith.]

In 2009, President Obama canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the WhiteHouse under the ruse of “not wanting to offend anyone” I guess it doesn’t matter if “some” are offended by a WH sponsored national prayer event that is inclusive and others are not.

BUT… on September 25, 2009 from 4 AM until 7 PM, a National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION was held on Capitol Hill, beside the White House. There were over 50,000 Muslimsin D.C. that day.

The National Day of Prayer established by Presidents Truman and Reagan was set aside for all religions and all peoples of the USA to pray for the blessing and prosperity of their nation.

In not wanting to offend Islam, President Obama appears to offend all other religions or belief systems in the USA.

Note the next national meeting for Jummah [or Friday prayers] is October 15th.

Islam, like all other religions in the USA, may peacefully observe their religion in accordance to their religious practices; unless those practices violate the rights and privileges of other USA citizens as guaranteed by the US Constitution and the various State Constitutions.
~Muslim should note that in the USA, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. In the USA the legal right to worship as you chose is established by the US Constitution as a protection for all the USA citizens to ensure they may worship or observe religion as they chose; even if they choose not to observe any religious practice at all.

There are religions on Earth that have as part of their religious requirement certain legal and governing practices. Those certain religious legal and governing practices that are athwart or against or crosswise with the US Constitution may not be practiced in the USA – where respect for individual liberty and freedoms is law. In those religions that are incompatible with the USA form of government, practitioners should consider going to another part of the world where totalitarian religious practice might be tolerated.

The US Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, and many other freedoms, at the cost of tolerance of others being able to likewise have the same freedoms; and recognitioin of others rights under the US Constitution.

In the USA, the rights of its citizens end where the rights of another citizen’s rights begin: that is individual sovereignty.

The National Day of Prayer was a brilliant and inclusive idea brought about and sanctioned by two US Presidents in hopes to unify, rather than separate, the great peoples of the USA. The current US Executive Administration seems to be on a course for disunity and separation. I pray it is not so.

Take a moment every day and recall this simple, little prayer:
“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our Country.”

And if you are of those who choose to have no religious practice then think on how you can aid parents to be better successes, teachers to be better successes, and our country – the USA – to be a better nation.

From time to time I am hit with insomnia. I just can’t sleep. I want to sleep. But ‘things’ keep me awake. Last night it was the movie “The Kingdom” starring Jamie Fox, Jennifer Garner, Chris Cooper, Jason Bateman, and Ashraf Barhom. It is a ‘gritty’ movie, but it does give one insights into the culture of the Kingdom of Saud. And that is what I needed to see.

No, I did not need to see the mechanizations of a terror cell. I found myself, as I often do as a writer, watching the people. These people that are so often painted as ‘the enemy’ by propagandists trying to sell air or newsprint overlook the fact that these are people. So I watched the people.

There is a disparity in religion and in culture; but you cannot take away the human side of being human. Fathers still love their sons and daughters. Wives their husbands. Sons and daughters their fathers and mothers. They are people. Think on that a bit.

The movie painted Americans as pushy and arrogant. From my own travels abroad, those are the ones that get noticed most often. I did not socialize with them when I could. Sometimes they were with me so I remained quiet and in the background, observing. Pushy, foul mouthed Americans driving hard to get their own way or [queue Jeremy Piven] manipulate events for the best possible outcomes.

In fairness, the stereotype was cast upon the locals as well. Saudi princes with pomp, show, and indecision. Saudi generals who are cruel and dictatorial. Internal squabbling between the forces [army versus police]. Yeah, it was not a pretty picture.

With stereotypes flying around, explosions for the movie ticket buyers, guns & bullets, grenades & rocket launchers, it was a stuntguy flick. In the midst of that we see a story unfold.

So here I am watching this movie and I kept thinking to myself, these people are not my enemies. These people are also sons and daughters of Noah, descendents of Adam, creations of the one true and living God. I see the pain and the difficulties of life affecting them as people. The suffering of a father seeing how his son suffers from the injustices of a political false accusation.

I want to go meet these people. Stare them in the face. Get to know them. Find a way to show them the love of God through a living prophet, Jesus the Salvation of God’s People. And that would be the starting point.

Hand in hand with my brothers and sisters around the globe we would return to the original job description, … tend the Earth, have rule and dominion, be fruitful and multiply it.

Alas, what can I say to a world that seeks more deities than there are people; who seeks division more than vision; who would rather listen to the deceptions of power-made politicians intent on sending someone else’s sons and daughters off to die for causes they are too afraid to meet personally.

It is my personal experience that people are great. It takes a politician to make someone hate someone else for gain.

Islam means submission. It was said in the movie, so I looked it up. Which made me look up Muslim; which means one who submits to God. Submission means a mission that supports a bigger mission or over mission. I can see that.

I am certain that among the Muslim there are those that greatly fear and serve God whole-heartedly. I do too. Our commonality ends with this though. I prophesy that Jesus, Yhshua, is the Anointed Salvation of God’s People. None can reach God without going through Him. And, this is not because I say it is so. It is so because it is so. Simply ask Him for yourselves.

So I end this bit of writing in prayer for a brother and a sister that is in another part of the world … may be in Saud, Persia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hindi, or wherever on this planet. I ask the Creator of Heaven and Earth to confirm His witness of His Son in their lives because I love them and do not wish to see them suffer alone. Amen.
