It has been a question and the subject of numerous books, movies, news articles and even a religious field of inquiry (eschatology) for over two millennia; what is the 'mark of the beast' and who is the 'Anti-Christ?'
Evangelists and Priests the world over have been both preaching and teaching on the subject for well over a millennium. Cults have been founded and ended over the question, along with false witnesses conveying a snake-oil salesman-like approach in order to profit lavishly from the question.
But no matter "who" or "what" one might singularly approach for an answer to the question, there will always be hundreds of diverging opinions, via voice and or print, in expert disagreement.
So, is there at least something of a definitive answer, today, concerning the mark of the beast?
While watching the signs closely over the years and engaging in numerous studies to at least understand the vagaries surrounding the question of the anti-Christ, it has always been difficult to assimilate at least something of a conclusion to this chilling question--that is--until the events of 9/11/2001 transpired.
On that particular day, which will live in infamy in America and something akin to glory across the Mideast, the question began to boldly answer itself. The enemy of the largest Christian nation on the planet had finally made its intent known, and that enemy holds in contempt virtually everything America holds dear.
But is radical Islam and its multitude of followers the legion of the anti-Christ prophesied in the Bible? To be certain, there are numerous other factions and faiths that have been outwardly anti-Christian, throughout history. However, Islam with its brutal dictates grounded in both Shariah and numerous passages of the Quran seeded towards brutal violence, seems to possess a singular brand of enmity unparalleled with regard to all things Judeo-Christian.
The United States has always embodied a large number of reasons to be hated by Islam, present leadership excepted, not the least of which being the fact that the US holds as one of its closest and most steadfast allies, the nation of Israel, as a singularly devout arch-enemy to its most ancient of foes.
Ultimately, we may now finally hold the knowledge to unlock what the Holy Bible foretold, well over two thousand years ago. Indeed, unlike most of America's historical enemies, this enemy is wholly different, and across numerous ideological fronts.
The Two Testaments
The tenets of radical Islam are devolved from an ancient political belief system which holds as its central element the death of those who do not believe as they do. Their natural foe is primarily comprised of two groups associated with two ancient Biblical Testaments. The Old Testament, which includes the Torah, is comprised largely of the first group of believers known as the Jews, while the New Testament is comprised of the 2nd group of "new covenant" believers known as Christians.
The two nations which primarily adhere, obviously enough, to these two ancient Testaments of the Holy Bible are Israel and the United States. While Europe still tenuously holds to these two belief systems to various degrees, they do so at a lesser and lesser rate. Meanwhile Paganism, Atheism, and New Age cultism are increasingly gaining in numbers of followership, unparalleled in modern times.
While a vast number of journalists, pundits, and bedeviled politico's, seem still to devote much of their time in trying to ascertain the question of why radical Islam hates both the US and Israel with such depth and intensity, they do so only because they invariably ignore the lessons of ancient history and these ancient religions, taken as a whole.
But then, even with the most obvious of historical elements between Judaism and Islam, there is in fact an even deeper form of enmity between these two adversaries and this element involves not only religion, but also race. In this instance, both the Quran and the Old Testament speak to the history between Isaac and Ishmael, as the offspring of Abraham, born in the year 1813 B.C. E., who is considered to be the father of the Jewish nation.
Abraham was, in fact, a 10th-generation descendant of Noah, and was born of the line from Noah's son, Shem.
When Sarah, Abraham's wife who was considered as one of the most beautiful women of that age, grew distraught over the fact that she couldn't conceive a child for Abraham, she insisted that Abraham take her handmaiden, Hagar a Princess and daughter of the Egyptian Pharaoh, as wife in order to conceive an offspring. Hagar soon gave birth to Ishmael, as Abraham's firstborn. It was only a few years later and in old-age that Sarah would eventually give birth to Isaac, who would become the father of the nation of Israel-- much as Ishmael would eventually become father to the Arab nations. However, enmity soon developed between Sarah and Hagar when Ishmael, then a teenager, was discovered by Sarah to be mocking her son, Isaac.
As a result of this enmity, Sarah urged Abraham to expel Hagar and Ishmael from their company, and Abraham sent the mother and son away into the wilderness, with the approval of the Lord. Many believe that it was here that the enmity between the Arabs and the Jews was incepted, and nothing has seemingly changed since that time.
The Bible further states, as an extreme point of reference, that Abraham's firstborn son Ishmael, would "be a wild donkey of a man, in that his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."
This particular prophecy in no way can be disallowed in the modern-day, as terrorism worldwide has taken on an almost supernatural vehemence in its brutal nature.
Despite Islam's being often described as an ancient "Abrahamic faith," the Arab and Mideast nations, in eschewing the true God of Abraham and the Torah, would eventually adopt a number of pagan Gods to worship from ancient times.
One of these deities was an ancient desert Moon God known as 'Sin' or 'Suen.' Many biblical experts state that the modern Islamic Deity was eventually transformed from this ancient Arab Pagan deity, by Mohammed. The crescent moon which can be seen on most Islamic flags and other representatively-styled banners could be considered as a strong indication of this fact.
Moreover, it was only when Islam was firmly established as a religion in about 600 AD that the Arab Pagan Moon God under Islam's prophet was re-established into what the Islamic world would name as Allah. This is also why numerous efforts have been only marginally successful at trying to establish Islam's "Allah" and the Judeo-Christian "God of Abraham," as one in the same. Nothing could, in fact, be further from the truth, once the origins are firmly established from ancient history.
Indeed, the Quran, which was written in 610 AD, borrows heavily from the Torah, written almost 2,000 years earlier in 1312 B.C.E. Not to mention other ancient Jewish texts, which to some degree account for the Quran's inclusion as an Abrahamic faith, lent credibility only by its heavily borrowed manuscript.
But, all history aside, with 1.2 Billion adherents across the world, Islam as the foundation of the recurrent problem that is modern-day radical Islam, presents to us an essential quandary which is confounded by any conventional problem-solving techniques.
There is, in effect, no diplomatic solution for those who see unbelievers of their cult of an ancient desert Moon-God, as deserving of nothing other than complete annihilation, and it is here where the seeds of the Anti-Christ, are sewn, and in full measure.
Now, we have new evidence which many find well beyond compelling, regarding this ancient mystery, as the world slowly erupts into chaos.
In our efforts to understand the origins of the anti-Christ as it's applied to Islam, the New Testament book of Revelation gives us the initial clue. In verse 13:18 the verse states " Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
This numeral, given as 666 has become commonly referred to as "The Mark of the Beast," but what does this number refer to, exactly? It is commonly accepted that the apostle John wrote the book of Revelation, as an exile on the Isle of Patmos, and as a vision from God. So, in effect, John saw a vision of these numbers as denoting the rise of the beast, and this would be the mark of that beast.
John's vision, as written, was later transcribed by the Greeks, as the characters "Chi Xi Stigma" in representation of the original text of the vision, which John saw.
As indicated, these numerals have long been a subject of conjecture and theory, a puzzling enigma, at least perhaps until now. Indeed, earlier interpretations of these numbers contained ambiguities. which seemed to defy explanation.
But, were these ambiguities initially conceived due to John's vision of exactly what he saw?
If we look at another symbol widely seen throughout the world in the modern day, we will notice similarities between the Greek representation and the below characters that are extraordinarily difficult to deny.
The characters pictured below represent the Arabic phrase "bismillah" followed by two crossed swords, in noting that Arabic, like Judaism, is read from the right to the left.
Bismillah, when translated, means, "In the name of Allah."
Notice the extraordinary similarities between the Greek "666" and the Arabic symbols "Bismillah."
When the symbols are laid out completely aligned, the similarities between the two symbolic configurations are well beyond stunning, in what they seem to portend.
What this line of reasoning suggests becomes evident, that John may have been writing exactly what he saw in the Arabic symbols, rather than the numerals 666.
This compelling evidence may further indicate why this particular revelation is now taking the Biblical world by storm. The YouTube video logically asks the question concerning the Lord's revelation to John:
"Would the Lord ask us to use wisdom and insight to identify the beast, and then give us a virtually unsolvable puzzle?"
Why would God, who taught against the occult practice of numerology, ask followers to use numerology to ascertain who the beast of the Anti-Christ, actually is? Or, would the characters of the text speak to an exact visual representation of what John actually saw, in his vision?
The video goes on to point out that the Creator does actively conceal knowledge until such time as the unveiling is appropriate. But even further is the fact that the Bible states that the "Mark of the Beast will cause all to receive a mark on their right hand or in their foreheads." (Rev. 13:16)
It is a common practice in fundamentalist Islam, for its practitioners to wear these badges or shields on their forehead or on their right arm, or both.
Within all of this relatively new information concerning Islam and 'the mark of the beast,' this revelation fittingly came to us from none other than a former Muslim, who just so happened to notice the remarkable resemblance between the Arabic symbols of "Bismillah, he had seen many times before his conversion, alongside the Greek letters written down in the book of Revelation, by John.
The video makes one other rather remarkable point that cannot be escaped with regard to the use of the Greek translation in its full context as it regards Islam and the mark of the beast.
Concerning the verse in Revelation ( 13: 18) at the heart of this enlightening piece of the puzzle, is the fact that if we once again look at the passage from the King James Bible, we read the following:
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
"The word count (from the Greek psephizo) in this verse may also be translated as reckon or decide. The word number (from the Greek arithmos) may also refer to a multitude (as in peoples or nations)"
So, if we use contextual wording in the verse as translated from the original greek passage, the verse would read as follows:
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding reckon the multitude of the beast: for it is the multitude of a man; and his multitude is in the name of Allah"
While no one can be certain of these findings and there will probably remain a great many individuals who might disagree with these interpretations, there can be little doubt that of all the various theories and suppositions which have evolved from this mystery of mysteries, for almost two thousand years, this theory interlocks quite remarkably with what we've seen unfolding in the Mideast, since Israel became a nation again in 1948.
In an earlier article from 2012, titled "The Daniel Project", we detailed many of the prophetical events and signs which have come true over the last 100 years, for the most part. With regard to the Beast. In our earlier article, we noted what the Bible states concerning the Beast, in this specific passage:
"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (Rev. 13: 7)
But, there is even one additional inclusion which might be operative with regard to Islam, the beast, and the anti-Christ. We had earlier noted the fact that a number of experts believe that the ancient desert moon-God of the Arabs had been eventually morphed into the deity which eventually became known as Allah, by Mohammed. This ancient moon-God's name was "Sin" or "Suen."
There is one passage within the Book of 2 Thessalonians 2:3, which states the following:
"let no man beguile you in any wise: for `it will not be,' except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."
Could this verse, which seems to describe the anti-Christ identity as "man of sin" be offering up yet another cryptic clue as to the origins of the anti-Christ with a solid link to this ancient Arab moon-God, Sin or Suen?
Many individuals believe that the New World Order under the auspices of the United Nations will help to bring about the horrific changes, as stated in these verses, into reality. Now, we may have several other pieces of the puzzle that clarifies and defines what is currently happening, and which easily belongs in the realm of the unthinkable.
"About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies,and insist on their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition."
~Sir Isaac Newton, Mathematician and the father of modern science

Earthquakes have been increasingly reported all across both the continental US and world over the past several years.
This increase has incited many environmentalists to blame fracking as the cause of the unusual quake activity.
In fact, movies and numerous documentaries have surged over the past several years that try to directly correlate an increased instance of quakes with fracking. However, much if not most of the increased activity is occurring in areas where no fracking has occurred.
For example, popular NC meteorologist Brad Panovich reported recently that the unusual consistency in recent quake activity in the North Carolina Mountains could not be fracking-connected since there is no fracking at present, in North Carolina.
When one individual tried to hypothetically tie fracking to the quakes, Panovich correctly asserted that there is "no fracking going on anywhere near the area in question," and went on to state that "Earthquakes are normal in this area just not at this frequency."
So, while one instance of unusual quakes in a non-fracking area may not be irrefutable proof that fracking can't be associated with earthquakes, this event does certainly indicate that an unusually high number of quakes in a given area can and does occur in the complete absence of fracking.
The state of North Carolina has approved legislation that will allow in fracking, but not until May of 2015.
However, the question then becomes, in the absence of the usual suspect of fracking, why has there been an increase in quake activity across North America in recent years? Could the increase be attributed to an increased number of seismology stations and better sensitivity, or could it be something in which scientists are yet unaware?
This increased earthquake phenomenon is not limited to the US, but is even occurring in Great Britain, where earthquakes have been so historically rare that a recent quake in Rutland UK prompted one resident to exclaim "How was there an earthquake in England? It's the end of the world."
In fact, some areas of Great Britain are now being cited as "earthquake hotspots"--this--despite the fact that fracking has been severely limited in the British Isles. Kingsworthy, a town just north of South Hampton UK, suffered a small quake in January 2015, which alarmed a great many residents. The only problem being, fracking has been outlawed in most areas of southern England, including Kingsworthy, so the question remains as to why the increased activity?
According to the website Livescience.com, there are no correlations available concerning why earthquakes are occurring at a dramatically increased rate across the planet.
In a June 2014 article LiveScience stated the following:
"The average rate of big earthquakes — those larger than magnitude 7 — has been 10 per year since 1979, the study reports. That rate rose to 12.5 per year starting in 1992, and then jumped to 16.7 per year starting in 2010 — a 65 percent increase compared to the rate since 1979. This increase accelerated in the first three months of 2014 to more than double the average since 1979, the researchers report."
Moreover, scientists have postulated a number of theories regarding the increased activity; however, fracking is only one of several more widely accepted theories.
Many researchers believe that episodes, in recent years, of increased solar and lunar activity may be the chief culprit. An increase in powerful solar flares and increased "supermoon" gravitational influences, says NASA, can have a demonstrable effect on tectonic disruptions across the planet.
Other scientists believe that shifts in the magnetic pole of Earth or geomagnetic influences can cause extraordinary upheaval in the many plates that make up the Earth's crust. As Earth's magnetic poles shift, tectonic plates are hit with powerful stressors which can cause plates to move creating quakes in unexpected areas.
Indeed, climate change and HAARP, a proven to exist manmade array of atmospheric and deep earth radio frequency transmitters, are also stated to be culprits. Some even refer to HAARP as a "Pandora's box" of ill-conceived military experiments that could spell doom for us all, unless the projects are halted.
Unfortunately, while many theories seem to plausibly effort an explanation as to the increased amount of seismic activity and otherwise over the past decade, there are others who maintain that these seismic events should not be taken alone, as proof of what may be transpiring.
Highly respected evangelist Franklin Graham believes that all of these events, taken together, may indicate what eschatologists refer to as the end times for mankind.
In a Christian Post article published in late 2014, Graham indicated the following:
"As I read the news, I can't help but wonder if we are in the last hours before our Lord Jesus Christ returns to rescue His church and God pours out His wrath on the world for the rejection of His Son," wrote Graham.
"I don't know if we have hours, days, months, or years - but as Christians, God calls us to take the truth of the Gospel to the ends of the earth."
This is not the first time that recent news from the Middle East has prompted talk of whether or not end times prophesy was being fulfilled.
Last year, as the civil war in Syria, escalated, many Americans felt that the events unfolding were prophesied back in the Old Testament.
So, is it possible that all these events including those originated by man alone, point to something far more dour?
"Graham went on to speak of "signs of the end of the age" documented by Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 24, including "wars and rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, and pestilence."
A very sobering thought to be sure, especially when scientific speculation abounds with no actual consensus to be found for these latest planetary mysteries. Moreover, in both 2014 and 2015, an extraordinary sequence of solar and lunar eclipses, blood moons, and supermoons have occurred and will occur again.
In April of 2014, when the first Blood Moon arose, Israel was embroiled in a conflict with Palestine even as ISIS began to emerge on the scene as a terrorist Islamist state unprecedented since ancient times. Simultaneously, the world was besieged by a deadly Ebola plague which, for the first time, broke free of the African continent while killing upwards of 10,000, to date.
The conflict in Israel would prove to sour relations between Israel and self-appointed potentate Barack Obama, the only US President in history who has embraced the various nations of Islam while denouncing Israel's defense of itself.
In September of 2014, the second Blood Moon arose which would see Russian fighters entrenched in an invasion of western Ukraine, while ISIS fighters invaded and occupied the ancient village of Dabiq in Syria which is slated in the Islamic Quran as the location of one of the final battles of the apocalypse.
In 2015, the next Blood Moon is slated to rise on April 4th, and the second Blood Moon will arise on September 28th.
Even more significant may be the fact that on Friday, March 20th of 2015, a total eclipse of the Sun will occur, which, theologically speaking, will have a profound effect on all gentile nations.
According to Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries:
"The eclipse of the sun signals danger to the nations and of the moon danger to Israel, this is then followed by the total lunar eclipse/blood moon on the Feast of Tabernacles. Not only that, according to NASA, this total blood moon on 9/28/15 will be at perigee meaning it will be a super moon and seen in Jerusalem during the feast of sukkot while the Jewish people will be dwelling outside in their sukkahs looking up toward the heavens."
"The odds of this string of events are truly astronomical," he concluded."
Many believe that these planetary events foretell unprecedented change for mankind, making the simultaneous occurrence of rare earthquakes, in concert with rare planetary signs, in addition to unrest and military incursions the world over, unsettling to say the least.

In our both divided and damaged America of today, it's as if we have been on a two-term mission or perhaps acid-trip--as the case may be--and are only now beginning to re-enter the powerful influences of gravity which comprise essential reality.
This, even as the unrealistic lunacy we have been experiencing on our transformational journey, seems to only now be reaching an apex of such magnitude that even the most ardent of leftist disciples are beginning to show vestiges of doubt.
The Virtual reality of the Obama regime being an irresponsible oligarchic government, and its re-entry into unwarped real-time, as many are realizing, has reached a terminus where 'seeming to be' eventually must give way to 'actually being.'
While many have touted the old saying that 'perception is reality,' over the last 6 years , some are beginning to now experience the cracks in that particular argument--that the flight of living in orbital fiction, must eventually give way to friction, at some point, and the very caustic atmosphere of re-entry is singularly unforgiving.
Just nod if you can hear me
Indeed, with at least some Americans, the scales have been increasingly thinned from eyes grown ever more bleary, as the ever increasing few can now begin to see the utter balefulness which seems to await us at the end of our current trajectory.
Since our eventful journey into "The Transformation of America" began, which is nothing if not a scouting trip into the existential boundaries of Fascist-Totalitarianism, we seemed to have now arrived at what could be described as an Event Horizon.
The term Event Horizon could be described as a point in astrophysical theory, which equates to a final juncture in both time and position, where we either commit to the present ill-suited course and hope for the best, or reverse all engines and try heroically to escape from the powerful gravity waves of what is quickly becoming full-blown American totalitarianism.
In scientific parlance, this horizon is that point in time in which gravitational force becomes so inexorably powerful, that escape is all but impossible. In other words, the US is approaching a point at which neither we the people nor even light itself, can escape the forces at the core of our black hole of acutely exorcised self-governance.
In essence, America is no longer "By the People and For the People," but rather has found itself within a power struggle between an irrepressibly wanton Executive Branch and the quasi-oligarchy that once was Congress.
The problem with the phenomena known as an Event Horizons, simply put, is the fact that the observer in his or her visual perception, can never quite comprehend when the object being observed or occupied crosses over into the apex of destruction itself.
In essence, despite having actually entered into the event horizon the victim never appears to cross over until such a time as the singularity at its core is finally encountered, which finally and utterly destroys the participants before they can ever completely comprehend the fact that they were actually within the terminus, in the first place.
The singularly witted individuals who have somehow managed to lead America into this conundrum are none other than those Progressives who currently occupy two-thirds of the leadership positions in the government, as led by one man, Barack Obama.
Despite a much ballyhooed Presidency, as stanchioned by the Media at large, it can be shown that each major policy directive of the Obama Regime's Agenda has been a complete and utter failure on the face of it.
The following are but a few of many examples:
Open Border: I caught a fleeting glimpse
While the Obama Regime has set itself either upon attacking or rendering next to useless the only law enforcement agency available to effectively guard the porous US border, I.C.E. , the southern hordes of illegal immigrant children and thugs are surging over the border at an alarming and unprecedented rate, and for good reason. The Obama regime is now transporting them, for free, to points all over the US after essentially promising these refugees amnesty by decree.
A Post which advertises an opportunity for independent contractor drivers for the transport of unaccompanied illegal alien children, has been making the internet rounds for the past several days.
The intriguing part of the post is the fact that it was published on January 29, of 2014 and specifically lists a total number of transports at 65,000 . While the border surge of alien-children has been growing over the past several years, how could The Department of Homeland Security possibly know how many children would be coming over the border unless this unprecedented surge had been meticulously planned?
Obama's Cloward-Piven plans, by overwhelming the system leading inevitably to eventual economic collapse and martial law, seem to remain on track, even as his popularity has periscoped, of late.
Foreign Policy: Just the Basic Facts
It's as if Pee Wee Herman had taken over the State Department, only problem being, that most of Pee Wee's Big Adventures end well. Not so much, however, with this Pee Wee Presidency, jealously grasping for more power even as under his leadership, the world has become more war-torn and unstable than at any time since WWII.
The Eurozone has quietly introduced negative interest rates in vainglorious hope of re-igniting their stuttering economy while simultaneously being overrun by Islamic immigrants. Russia is even now threatening to invade Ukraine completely after already having taken over Crimea, as the US-Russia cold war has been reignited by Obama's inexorably feeble grasp of geo-politics.
Northern Africa is under attack by Al Qaeda, as ISIS terrorists intent upon building a Super-Caliphate, have surged over Iraq, and Syria, and numerous other areas across the globe are beset by Islamic Extremists. China is rattling its saber at most pro-western Asian nations and South America has become a torrent of Leftist economic unrest, while Israel and the US have never been more distant, these just to name a few.
In retrospect, it's actually quite likely that much like the faltering US Presidency, it may have been better for the US to have never even had a State Department, never-mind the leader at the helm, Hillary Clinton, who inarguably has shown even less capability than her boss, Barack Obama, even as she postures that things will be different with her as President. America has now lost much if not most of the respect it had previously enjoyed across the planet and can boast a concerted lack of trust among its allies in addition to a noteworthy lack of dread among its enemies.
There are a few other things that Obama does exceedingly well at, aside from reading teleprompters....
Terrorism: There is no pain; you are receding
"Al Qaeda's on the path to defeat," stated Obama, during the 2012 DNC convention in Charlotte NC.
Most important at convention time for the Democrat-Liberals in 2012, was free access to birth control, booing God, crowing over Bin Laden's death, and literally attacking Conservative opposition with every federal law enforcement agency available, in addition to America's non-biased mainstream media.
But since those fateful words, uttered by Obama, what we've found is both an Afghanistan increasingly under the nasty thumbs of an ever-bestial Taliban, and an Iraq that has almost been completely overrun by Sunni Terrorists. Dictator Bashar Assad has re-assumed control of Syria for the most part, while Jordan and many other smaller Mideast nations are teetering under a veritable plague of bloodthirsty Islamists, in addition to a sea of frightened refugees.
Terrorism across the globe has undergone an unprecedented surge, under the Obama regime, which had thought to simply make friends with the extremist Muslims and let bygones be bygones. Moreover, the Obama Regime seems more interested in coddling murderous Islamists as freedom fighters while labeling domestic Conservative opposition in the US as domestic terrorists, than trying to stabilize the world with US strength, such as it is at this juncture.
Duly noted that Obama's pretending to posture a strong foreign policy front, would probably play about as realistic as Richard Simmons assuming the role of Ironman.....Chaos truly reigns, and let us not forget who Obama was fronting weapons to in order to fight the Syrian dictator....yes, indeed, the same groups which eventually split off and began taking over Iraq:
This is what Obama stated of the Sunni terrorist group ISIS, when it took over a major city in Iraq, in January:
"If a J.V. team puts on Lakers' uniforms that doesn't make them Kobe Bryant" (January 2014). "[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated" (August 2013). "So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding"(September 2011).
So, would that be a J.V. terrorist group or the Obama Regime, itself?
Several days ago, none other than the Washington Post, one of the most widely read papers in the US, has outed this glaring lie by Obama, as the ISIS terrorist group continues its takeover of Iraq, and due largely to one of the most incompetent political candidates ever, according to Bill Clinton, of Barack Obama.
"With regards to Iraq, you and I agreed, I believe, that there should be a status of forces agreement," Romney told Obama during the 2012 debate.
"That’s not true," Obama interjected.
“Oh, you didn't want a status of forces agreement?” Romney asked as an argument ensued.
“No,” Obama said. “What I would not have done is left 10,000 troops in Iraq that would tie us down. That certainly would not help us in the Middle East.”
On Thursday, Obama addressed reporters in the White House Briefing Room about Iraq’s latest crisis:
“Do you wish you had left a residual force in Iraq? Any regrets about that decision in 2011?” a reporter asked.
“Well, keep in mind that wasn’t a decision made by me,” Obama said. “That was a decision made by the Iraqi government.”
US Economy: Only coming through in waves
While the Obama Regime insists that the American economy is now in good claws and unemployment has been defeated, what we've actually seen is an extraordinary improvement in our service industries, as architects, engineers, and other Master's degree recipients ply their highly-polished trades within our extraordinarily competitive fast food industry.
It's as if the Obama Regime has thrown a wet blanket on a once fiery economy and wrestled it to the ground, while occasionally dousing it with new regulations to keep it from reaching flashpoint.
As a result over, 92 million people who wish to work are not working, meaning that --overall--there are more non-working people than working people in the US, a recipe for eventual disaster.
In fact, since Obama came into office in 2009, the working population has remained, rather stubbornly, at about the same static levels and has yet to truly rebound since the 2008 meltdown, despite millions of job-hungry young candidates looking to enter the work force.
The U6 unemployment rate category places US unemployment at a ridiculous historical high of 12.2 % and holding, even as Obama continually refuses to allow job-surging projects such as the XL pipeline to be built, which would provide both jobs and an ample source of energy infusion into the world's economic markets.
In other news, many world economists are predicting a financial reset which would have a world-changing effect on everything, as in removing the US dollar as the world reserve currency and replacing it with a basket of currencies known as "special drawing rights" or SDR's, in essence a new and singular world financial currency. This change would, at best, effectively plunge the US economy into the doldrums of a 2nd depression. Cross your fingers on hoping that particular prediction simply doesn't come true.
US Healthcare: Just a little pin prick
Since the advent of Obamacare, the one thing which many individuals are beginning to understand is that despite the stated impetus of providing everyone with quality, affordable, healthcare the exact opposite has proven to be true.
In the US, short of a qualifying event which requires special treatment, as of March 31st, no individual can now buy IRS compliant personal health insurance, a thing that has never occurred in the entire history of the health insurance industry.
Luckily, Medicaid is still just as available as it was before Obamacare, despite the fact that most of the entire inner-beltway entirely forgot about that specific (behemoth) socialized medical program for people who cannot afford health insurance, which was the ostensible reason for Obamacare in the first place, but not really. As premiums have risen substantially and deductibles have become effectively unaffordable, 1/5th of the US economy [healthcare] is even now being stamped down into a crumpled heap of debris, and at the heels of El Magnifico himself.
From a Facebook friend:
"My policy was canceled. The new policy with only catastrophic coverage (exact same coverage as my old policy) replaced the old one but my premium went from 190 a month to 410. I don't need pregnancy benefits!
Two weeks ago I was looking around to see if I could find a better policy for my money and I discovered that I can't change policies until 2015 even if I could do better.
If a person has no insurance policy they can't get one, except for a "temporary" policy which covers only catastrophic events and is also expensive, without a qualifying life event until 2015. I can't afford to seek health CARE because health INSURANCE costs too much."
Thank you Mr. President!
The next enrollment period comes back around shortly after the next Blood Moon rises, in November of 2014. Meanwhile, both hospitals and medical providers are dropping like flies, and doctors are fleeing the medical industry in droves, which will eventually create a healthcare crisis unlike anything yet seen in the US, assuming things continue on as presently engineered.
Point being, Pee Wee's Presidency strikes again as the Big Top White House slowly devolves into a House of Fascist Horrors, but at least we now know what we have to look forward to....
Veterans Care: There'll be no more..... aaaaaaaah!
The VA and its ongoing problems were promised to be fixed by Obama right after his inauguration, however, instead of effecting change within the VA, the President promptly set to ignoring it completely. Under the Obama Regime over the past six years, and despite wads of cash being repeatedly thrown at the troubled agency, the problems only got worse.
Waiting times for service doubled and sometimes even tripled to a year's wait causing as many as 40 deaths, and probably many more, to former armed service members who had been promised ample medical care after their military service. Unfortunately, as waiting times grew worse and worse, the VA set to solving the problem once and for all and began creating secret waiting lists, alleviating the problem, at least on paper, in one fell conspiratorial swoop.
Luckily, the Senate and House has decided to fix this problem once and for all....by throwing barrels of cash at it rather than wads--job well done, goodfellas, job well done....
Unresolved Obama Regime Scandals: I turned to look but it was gone
Despite a plethora of scandal after scandal, each of which remain patently unresolved, the media has chosen in large part to ignore most of the scandals, this despite ever increasing public knowledge of the fact that the media is ignoring these stories.
This has caused a societal backlash effect, however. For instance, the serial ignoring of important political news unbecoming to the Obama regime by virtually every major TV news network has reached a singularity--meaning most people now seem to both know and understand this fact. According to a recent Gallup poll, confidence in network TV news has reached an all time low in 2014:
The blame for this particularly predictable outcome can easily be laid at the feet of the following issues, which by the way, induces most Progressives into paroxysms of hyper-insanity, which in and of itself has also become predictable. In essence ABC, NBC, CBS, and NPR have become but mere spokes in the rim of the Obama Regime's propaganda efforts, to include the entire Democrat party, and for the following reasons:
Benghazi: A distant ship smoke on the horizon
After finally arresting the cafe-lizard/terrorist who had fronted the Libya attack on the Benghazi Compound, killing four Americans, the Obama Regime (after trading five A-Team terrorists for a US deserter) came under extreme fire. This ultimately prompted the White House to react and incarcerate the rather patiently awaiting terrorist for trial, after being questioned by reporter after reporter over the prior two years, who had easily found this murdering Islamist.
However, the mean facts remain that few people neither know nor understand the why's and the how's of what actually happened at the time, in Benghazi nor why after an attack that took place over most of the night, no help ever came. Moreover, the 30 wounded survivors of the attack have been placed under wraps by the US government and warned to silence, or else. The other questions which remain include an inquiry into why the mission existed in the first place, and why the mission was left virtually undefended, in the face of a plethora of terrorist threats.
The penultimate question? Where was Obama...
IRS Targeting of Obama's Opposition: But you may feel a little sick
As Lois Lerner suffers through paid retirement after performing her harassment duty of Obama's opposition prior to the 2012 elections, the question remains regarding where her marching orders came from. While the Obama regime insists that Lerner, as a high-level career official of the apolitical IRS, heroically took it upon herself to obliterate all of Obama's tax paying enemies by a figurative agency firing squad, most Americans had difficulty believing that particular angle, and most especially after Lerner pleaded the fifth in order to protect the higher-ups in question, whom she was protecting.
But then, when the current director claimed that thousands of Lerner's emails to other branches of the government had gone missing and that Lerner's hard drive had subsequently crashed, along with five other key employees, millions of Americans executed a series of unbelieving eye rolls in unison. The piece de resistance? The back-ups are also mysteriously missing.... and the hard drives have since been destroyed.

Falsified Search Warrants, Bugging of the Press, and a Lawless DOJ: Come on, it's time to go
While Attorney General Eric Holder has already been held in contempt of Congress for verifiably lying in congressional testimony, at present a push is underway to impeach Holder and throw him under the Justice department, and for good reason. The greatest Constitutional violations include denying knowledge of reporter James Rosen's subpoenas after signing off on them, failing to prosecute IRS employees after certain knowledge and proof of illegal political targeting, and ignoring laws which require notification of Congress before releasing Gitmo terrorist detainees.
Now, Congress has learned that the DOJ approved the transport of illegal aliens from Texas and is dumping them in Arizona only to eventually let them go. All of this in addition to other items, that after almost six lawless years in office, have become far too numerous to mention including:
The Bigger Picture: The child is grown
Events taking place on every corner of the earth seem to now be spinning out of control, but even including here in America.
It's as if Pandora's box has been opened and there's no magical solution that can reverse a thing that had in fact been predicted ages ago, and the interesting part is the fact that the US, especially over the past decade, has played its meaningful part on the stage that has culminated at this point in time, our coming Event Horizon right now, for better or for worse.
Is there anybody in there?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?
Come on now
I hear you're feeling down
Well, I can ease your pain
And get you on your feet again
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?
There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb
I have become comfortably numb
Just a little pin prick
There'll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick
Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working, good
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on, it's time to go.
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb.
