Global SITREP A10-15: America Under Duress


Update 21 February 2015: If there was any doubt about the accuracy of what has been stated in this Eschatology Today blog post, then I would hope that what former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has publicly burst forth with regarding our president will have buttressed the point that this nation has arrived at a critical juncture. A juncture such as this can also be referred to as "the breaking point"  between the "life and death" of this constitutional republic.

Even though many on the left and even some centrists are now in a virtual vapor lock over Giuliani's public statements, the fact remains that they are reacting as they are simply because the former mayor has told the brutal truth in saying, "He doesn’t love you. He doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up: To love this country.”  Kudos to Rudy Giuliani for saying what needed to be said when it needed to be said. And its better late than never that he said what he has said. 

The only question now is, will this make a difference in the short-term? I don't care about the long-term simply because the Lord's prophetic word settled that issue long ago and its irrevocable. What concerns me is the here and now short-term and the tangible effects these things will have on our lives and how the words of Proverbs 24 and Ephesians 6:10-18 are powerfully resonating.

6 February 2015:  Many teachers of Bible prophecy have pointed out over the years that America is not mentioned specifically in the 'last days,' and because of this they have assumed or speculated that the country would have been attacked and destroyed by a nuclear armed enemy; or laid low by a natural disaster of unimaginable proportions; or even judged by Almighty God before the judgments of the other nations of the world during the 70th Week. 

Well, I do not believe there is a single human being alive today who accurately knows the future in the kind of detail that led to the above speculations, not even the so-called Bible prophecy "experts."  The only things I know for sure are what the Holy Spirit directly convicts me of, or what I hear and see with my own eyes and ears and have tested their validity. What I have heard very recently passes muster with both of these testable thresholds. 

This country of ours, the United States of America, is now facing the greatest danger it has ever faced since the Revolution of the late 1770s. A danger great than Hitler, Tojo, Stalin or Mao ever posed to our way of life. The danger we face today is within our own government leadership, from the Executive Office to all of our intelligence agencies and every department of the government that deals on a day to day basis with our national security.  All of these institutions of the American government been compromised to the highest level by Islamists, the same Islamists that the General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and the Egyptian Army had to over throw in a coup d'etat in July 2013, the al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun, the Muslim Brotherhood.

But you do not have to take my word for any of this. I would ask, however, that you pay all due attention to what the former US Navy Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet, Admiral James. A. "Ace" Lyons, Jr. has to say about the current dire situation facing America at the present time. What follows are excepts of an article written this past October by the Admiral entitled "Taking back America."

Admiral James A. "Ace" Lyons, Jr.
 
Bold added for emphasis.
"Never in my lifetime did I believe this great nation would be taken down and withdrawn from its world leadership position by its own leadership. While some try to explain away the Obama administration’s damaging policies by making excuses, they fail to face reality. This is a planned agenda.

When then-Sen. Barack Obama announced in 2008 that he was going to fundamentally transform America, few Americans comprehended what that declaration actually meant. However, with his radical background and his leftist mentors and associates, his agenda became very clear early on in his presidency.

With its many scandals, including the Benghazi tragedy, the perverse “progressive” ideology of the Obama administration, combined with its deceitful and manipulative methods, has corrupted normally nonpartisan government agencies. More importantly, it has infected the civilian and military leadership who lead their agencies.

The core of the corruption is an attitude that flaunts the Constitution and takes the position that the president can do anything he wants with a pen and a phone that promotes an agenda, regardless of its impact on the country’s national security.

We used to have giants in Congress such as John Stennis, Richard Russell, Tip O’Neill, et al., who were Americans first and party members second when it came to matters affecting our national security. Regretfully, other than a few in the minority, that doesn’t exist today.

Clearly, trust in our government institutions has been eroded. Furthermore, the Obama administration’s embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood, with its penetration of essentially all our government agencies, including the Department of Defense, has had an adverse impact on our policies, particularly with regard to the Middle East and the global war on terrorism. As we have seen, the administration switched sides in that war in Libya by financing, training and arming Islamic jihadist militias who were under the political control of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was these same militias that carried out the terrorist attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s failure to provide adequate security prior to the attack even though there was advanced warning, according to five CIA security contractors at the Benghazi annex, as well as the administration’s failure to respond militarily, was a dereliction of duty.

Nonetheless, it was the catalyst for the implementation of “sequestration.” It provided the vehicle for the unilateral disarmament of our military forces.

With the United States being challenged throughout the world, our reduced military forces are severely stretched in meeting all their requirements. However, we still retain the capability to mount a massive, around-the-clock air campaign to defeat the Islamic State. The few strikes per day we are conducting in Iraq and Syria, with restricted rules of engagement, do not constitute a serious air campaign.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff know that what we are doing today in Iraq and Syria to defeat the Islamic State is wrong. By their acquiescence to the administration’s half-hearted war policies, they cannot escape being held accountable for the genocide the Islamic State will inflict on the Syrian inhabitants of Kobani, the Kurds and other minorities.

The real question is, how do you change the disastrous Obama administration policies that affect our national security? Obviously, the ballot box is one way, but the one institution that has the power to send an unmistakable signal that will be heard throughout the country is the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It is time for them to live up to their oath of office — “to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic.” The Obama administration has clearly violated the Constitution and must be held accountable. Since we no longer can count on Congress, the Joint Chiefs as a corporate body should voice their objections to administration policies that are threatening America’s security and that of our allies. It’s time to take back America."

How does this country get out of this mess? The November 2016 election is definitely the preferred method as the Admiral has just made abundantly clear above. However, given the current and nearly catastrophic world situation, the next 22 months could prove to be too long, too little and too late.  As the Admiral suggests, it may boil down to a few senior flag officers of our Armed Forces, that is the one's who are left in the wake of the Islamist putsch of American military officers following the Benghazi massacre, who will take a stand against all enemies, foreign and domestic. So help them God.

Naming the Threat 

Although she is no longer part of the Obama Administration, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had at her side a Muslim woman by the name of Huma Abedin. Huma Abedin is Hillary's' 'special aide' and carried the official title of Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  If Hillary is the Democrat Party nominee for president in the 2016 election, and it able to win the election, then the Islamist Huma Abedin almost certainly will be a part of a Clinton Administration and an Islamic supremacist will once again be resident in our White House. Huma Abedin comes from a family with very active membership in the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun, or just Ikhwan for short). Huma also spent twelve years for a Saudi Arabian think-tank known as the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA). According to Andrew C. McCarthy, the agenda and still active purpose of  the IMMA is “to grow an unassimilated, aggressive population of Islamic supremacists who will gradually but dramatically alter the character of the West.”  So, ask yourself a question. What is the difference between an Islamic jihadist and an Islamic supremacist? The answer: none. Their objectives are identical. The former U.S. House of Representatives Republican from Minnesota's 6th Congressional District, Michele Bachmann, deserves much credit for exposing these facts over the past six years.

Other Islamists currently embedded within the Obama Administration were exposed by the Arabic-language Egyptian publication Rose El-Youssef in December 2012. The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has posted an English translation of the Egyptian article by Ahmed Shawki, "A Man and 6 of the Ikhwan in the White House." Those six named Ikhwan infiltrators are: "Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships."  This article explains what we have seen in practical application in everything President Obama has said and his administration has done thus far with respect to Islam's war (jihad) against us and his personal refusal (Islamic al-taqiyya) to identify Islamists as the enemy at war with us. That explanation boils down to the fact the Obama Administration has never operated from a position of hostility toward the Islamic terrorists of the Muslim Brotherhood, but instead became the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood on the face of the earth.  

Were you aware that terrorist Muslim Brotherhood representatives and HAMAS supporters received direct access on Wednesday 28, January 2015 to Congress and the U.S. State Department in order to request their assistance in restoring the overthrown Islamist government of Mohamed Morsi to power in Egypt? The IPT reported this on 29 January.This happens at the same time as American taxpayer dollars are sent to Israel to assist an Obama Administration attempt to defeat Likud and Benjamin Netanyahu in the Israel's parliamentary elections next month. If not, I suggest reading this FrontPageMag.com article.

Have you seen even one comprehensive report about any of this on an American prime time news program aired by media giants such as CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC or even FoxNews? How about a single coherent sentence about this? Why not? So, ask yourself why an Egyptian magazine would think this information was important enough to inform the Egyptian people about as they struggle against the Islamist tyranny, revolution, insurrection and outright war in their homeland by the likes of the Muslim Brotherhood, HAMAS and Islamic State. Might you think none of this has any relation to 'last days' Bible prophecy? Try reading Isaiah 19. This is what the above Islamists and many more of their brothers are intent on bringing to these United States of America.

One last question. What, if anything, will you as an American citizen personally do about it?

Note: The key resource references accessed online for this report are: The Investigative Project on Terrorism website and DiscoverTheNetworks.Org. "Islamist Infiltration of the Obama Administration."

Obama may not be "the" antichrist, but he is certainly doing satan's work of destroying America. This is hard to watch! Ready to go home!! Meet you there:)

Our military leadership has no problem sending in the troops. Most high ranking posts are figureheads but care little about the erosion of our Constitution. At least Egypt's military had the honor to oust the muslim brotherhood and try to restore their constitution.

Good work sean, thank you. As to your ending question: as maddening and morally wrong as this all is, if it is part of biblical prophecy, hen its already done. Who are we to go against what God has decreed? I know that goes counter to American patriotism, but tjink of it biblically. Are we comanded to try and stop end times events? I do not believe so.

Only by the Grace of God is the President of the United States or any other leader brought to power over peoples. There are so many bible scriptures that tell us that power to elevate to high offices belongs to God, ABBA, YAHWEH, also known as "I AM". But I specifically like Daniel 2: verses 20 thru 22 in this regard.

There are also just as many passages that tell us to pray for the leadership of our nations and communities so that the Wisdom from God will rest on the leadership and give them the ability to function in their appointments so that we can live in peace and harmony.

Now, I believe you all recognize that I have a few problems in this regard because I know in my knower exactly who the current Occupier of the WH is and what real spirit he is operating under. How do I say this with great conviction? I know it from the fact that I earnestly took on the mission of praying for Mr. Obama when he was elected in 2008.

Yes, I didn't like him then but God's Word told us, NO, Commanded us, to pray for him and not evil. Did I struggle? You bet I did and big time! To the place that it almost made me ill. I read scripture after scripture trying to keep my promise to pray for him and his whole cabinet but all it accomplished was disgust.

So what I did next was ask to "know what is the driving force within this man now placed in the White House. I can tell you that what I saw and heard didn't ease my discomfort one little bit. I know what he is and what he is capable of. How he is hiding the evil he is doing by creating distractions that will keep the public and other elected officials occupied and to busy to take remedial steps to end his Tyranny.

Do I imagine this evil? Not one bit! My prayers have taken on a whole new realm and much like Caleb and Joshua we all need to understand the TIMES AND THE SEASONS we are living in right now. Pray instead of beating our heads against a stone wall; come before the Lord with new hope because that is the only hope we really have.

Remember, it is God, ABBA FATHER, who raises up the leaders of the world and it is also who brings them all down. Just like he did Hitler, Tojo, and many, many others in the Old Testament. Job 12:18 tells us "He takes off the shackles put on by kings and ties a loincloth around their waist" but Daniel 2:20 really does say it all: "Praise be to the name of the God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are HIS"!

I have to be able to pray for our leadership so I submit all of my prayers to my Heavenly Father with my Prayer Language and that keeps me from going against His commandments.

Sean,

What an eye-opening blog. This is far beyond politics and parties today. I pray we are not too late. The deception is so great that our leaders just seem to be blinded to everything going on (lack of truth brings deception - 1Thes 2:11) We essentially have an entire government that, for the most part, doesn't know the Lord Jesus, has conveniently forgotten our Christian foundation and roots, and just keep son plugging away racking up debt, destroying out military power and endangering the entire world politically and economically. Business as usual...

What to do? You pose a difficult question at the end. Well, short of grabbing pitchforks, tar and feathers ( good luck with this "all about me" mentality that is prevalent in our society), I really think we as God-fearing Christians need to be the remnant that we are and pray hard for some very specific things. Pray that God REMOVE the wicked and evil individuals from DC, starting at the very top; pray that everything this administration does be exposed fully to the light…total transparency. Let the people be outraged. Pray to God for the church to wake up, for its people to become involved, and for revival to break out. Only He can right this sinking ship. Just read the news and it seems apparent that we are truly operating "as it was in the Times of Noah"…wrapped in a disgusting package of national deception…from the media, church and government. We can and must be in prayer, and we must be praying for people to come to know the Lord. We are truly playing in the bottom of the ninth inning, with 2 outs and 2 strikes. Pray and focus on Him. He is our Refuge and Strength, a very present Help in trouble. And we are in trouble. Come quickly, Lord.

Sean, thank you for your untiring efforts. I know there are many of us who are greatly indebted to your knowledge of world events, and His Word!

My conviction in the Holy Spirit is as follows:

The 70th Week and what happens during that week are what the bulk of foreordained prophecy from the Lord are about, in both the Book of Daniel and in The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Other than the specifics of the 70th Week the only absolutely for sure thing prior to it, as Paul spoke through the Holy Spirit, is that there will be that last Gentile to be grafted in and then the Harpazo will occur and the Lord then will do what He will do so that all Israel will be saved.

I do not see doing what must be done, whatever can be done prior to the Harpazo, against all enemies foreign or domestic is against God in any manner whatsoever. That is my now 37-year old oath and I will continue uphold it and execute it until the day He comes, so help me God.

The pastor of a church here, the same church that showed obsession years ago, is taking a whole Sunday service to address obamas statement at the prayer breakfast and to "educate " the congregation about what the crusades were really about and to show that there's no comparison whatsoever. He also wants to give the congregation a scriptural answer when confronted by such nonsense. Again, people are wondering if the pulpit is an appropriate place for that.

Sean,
Agree 100% with you. Until HE calls me home, I will do as the Holy Spirit and God's Word proclaim me to do.

Sean Osborne said...

Everything, and I mean to say every jot and iota of what Obama said about the Crusades was a bald faced lie.

The entire Middle East, outside of most of the Arabian Peninsula, was Christian when it was invaded and conquered by Arab Muslims.

Notice I did not say the entire Middle East was invaded and conquered by "radical Muslims." It was invaded by and conquered by Arabs practicing Islam and following (submitted to) the dictates of the Qur'an.

Not only did these Muslims invade and conquer the entire Middle East, the also did the same to all of northern Africa, southwestern Europe (Spain and Portugal), Sicily, and most of southeastern Europe as far as "the gates of Vienna." All of this was done to advance the cause of the false god of Islam in forcing the civilized world into submission.

By God they failed. Spain and Portugal were liberated, and southeastern Europe was liberated from these Muslim invaders. Then Christian Europe realized they had to mount military expeditions in an attempt to liberate their Christian brethren in the Middle East, primarily the Holy Land from Islamic tyranny.

Now history is on the verge of repeating itself.

hartdawg said...

So I went to the "church service " the first thing he mentioned was the Muslims were the leaders in numbers of slave traders that obama ignored, then the pastor said by obamas comparison he was criticizing the victims and basically insulting them, he also mentioned the numbers of people killed in the name of atheism, millions killed by Stalin, Mao. ...and he also said more people were killed in one afternoon on 9/11 than over a 350 year period of the inquisition, 100s of years ago so why does the criticism shift to Christianity. He said obamas remarks was a slight of hand and mind by obama to degregate christianity and defend islam. He explained the imbalance going on. He asked why islam gets a pass but the crusades done by Christians defending their homelands is terrorism. More people were killed in the name of atheism and Islam and there is no comparison. The pastor was pretty annoyed at obamas statement.

Sean Osborne said...

Take 5 minutes ans watch the jihadist invasion of Islam into non-Muslim lands that occurred during the nearly 400 years prior to the Crusades.

Islamic Invasion

They showed this video at that church. Very well done.

Sean,

Do you think there is any realistic chance that Netanyahu will back out of his Congress speech at the last minute?

I don't think he will, but Reuters has a story this morning saying it is under discussion.

Sean Osborne said...

The Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives extended an invitation to the Prime Minister of the State of Israel to speak before a joint session of Congress, a body which represents all of the American people.

Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, graciously accepted the invitation.

Unless the Speaker suddenly withdraws the invitation, then the PM must honor his acceptance of it.

That's proper protocol.

The subject of PM Netanyahu's speech is the Iranian nuclear weapons program. It is the most critical topic of the present time.

Any member of the Congress, even honorary, who fails to attend is derelict of his/her sworn duty the to people of the sovereign U.S. State he/she represents.

mark3210 said...

Sean,

I can barely believe that in the 7th year of BHO's term, all he can say about Iran is "What's the rush?" and "I think it's important for us to maintain these protocols".
