This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Obamination: National Day of Prayer

Obamination: National Day of Prayer Prayer addressed to the deity ought to be religious, not political in its purpose.  In this case, Obamination has politicized that which should be spiritual, turning prayer into a campaign pitch.

Presidential Proclamation -- National Day of Prayer, 2012

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER, 2012
- - - - - - -
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A PROCLAMATION

Prayer has always been a part of the American story, and today countless Americans rely on prayer for comfort, direction, and strength, praying not only for themselves, but for their communities, their country, and the world.

On this National Day of Prayer, we give thanks for our democracy that respects the beliefs and protects the religious freedom of all people to pray, worship, or abstain according to the dictates of their conscience. Let us pray for all the citizens of our great Nation, particularly those who are sick, mourning, or without hope, and ask God for the sustenance to meet the challenges we face as a Nation. May we embrace the responsibility we have to each other, and rely on the better angels of our nature in service to one another. Let us be humble in our convictions, and courageous in our virtue. Let us pray for those who are suffering around the world, and let us be open to opportunities to ease that suffering.

Let us also pay tribute to the men and women of our Armed Forces who have answered our country's call to serve with honor in the pursuit of peace. Our grateful Nation is humbled by the sacrifices made to protect and defend our security and freedom. Let us pray for the continued strength and safety of our service members and their families. While we pause to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending liberty, let us remember and lend our voices to the principles for which they fought -- unity, human dignity, and the pursuit of justice.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 3, 2012, as a National Day of Prayer. I invite all citizens of our Nation, as their own faith directs them, to join me in giving thanks for the many blessings we enjoy, and I call upon individuals of all faiths to pray for guidance, grace, and protection for our great Nation as we address the challenges of our time.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.

BARACK OBAMA

our democracy

    We do not have a democracy, our system is a republic.  The passions of the mob are tempered by passing through elected representatives who operate under The Constitution which specifies the limits of their powers.  Obanination is not being careless with the language, he is deliberately engaging in sedition, undermining our system of limited, representative government.

respects the beliefs

    Respect, like credit, must be earned, not demanded. The establishment clause of the First Amendment prohibits Congress from designating a national church.  The free exercise clause prohibits Congress from unreasonably interfering with religious practices. 

    No sane & sentient person will respect a cult whose mission is mercenary: the personal emolument1 of its founder or whose methods are martial: genocidal2 conquest3 using terror4 as a battle tactic.   No sane & sentient person will want to  be a citizen of a nation whose government arbitrarily respects such a cult, deeming it  equal to Christianity.

embrace the responsibility

    Obamination is mixing politics with prayer: promoting Socialism; demanding that we submit to extortionate taxes to support his fantasy welfare state. 

opportunities to ease that suffering

    Not satisfied with National Socialism, Obamination wants to expand it on a global scale.  Obamination wants the UN to extort us too.

safety of our service members

    A worthy objective best promoted by sending the descendants of Little Boy & Fat Man instead of bogging our manpower in unending wars under suicidal rules of engagement.  If a war is worth fighting, it is worth winning. If a war is worth winning, it is worth ushering the enemy into Hell as swiftly, efficiently & inexpensively as possible without wasting our own blood. 

principles for which they fought

    The demagogue is attempting to re-write the Declaration of Independence

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."


    If we had  patriotic Presidents instead of  traitors, the war would be fought to terminate threat & aggression against America and to prevent their repetition.  The Second Barbary War was necessary because the lesson taught by the First Barbary war was not sufficiently instilled & reinforced.  The pirates regrouped, re-armed and renewed their attacks.   Muslims renewed their attacks in modern times because we have demonstrated weakness and lack of resolve in Korea, Vietnam & Somalia. 

    I searched the Declaration for the three phrases listed by Obamination, but did not find them there.  The founders realized & seized for us the right to live free and unmolested, subject neither to attack nor threat.   Islam has another idea, clearly expressed by the Dey of Algiers to J.Q. Adams & T. Jefferson who asked him by what right the Barbary Pirates sacked our merchantmen. 

"The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to heaven."

    When caliph Umar sent the Muslim army to Persia centuries before the Barbary Wars, his General explained his mission to a Persian General in similar terms.

Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:-- "Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master."  Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386

 


  1. 8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils of war. Say: "The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger." So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if you are believers. 
    1. 8:41. And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad ) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) - And Allâh is Able to do all things. 
    2. 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
    3. 48:19. And abundant spoils that they will capture. And Allâh is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise. {Click through and examine the context.}
    4. Sahih Bukhari  Ch 61 # 2756: [Aisha Bewley] ...It is mentioned from Ibn 'Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, "My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.
    5. 3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331
    6. Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
      The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.
    7. while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand."  Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220
  2. 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise. 
    1. 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allâh's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, He will never let their deeds be lost,
  3. 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do. 
    1. 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. 
    2. 9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). 
  4. 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).
    1. 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes." 
    2. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.
      1. 8:57
        1. Pickthall, Sher Ali,
    3. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.
      1.  
        1. 8:60
          1. Abdullah Yusuf Ali,  J.M. Rodwell
    4. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness.
      1. 9:120
    5. 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives. 
    6. 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh's (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see). 
    7. 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh). 
    8. Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
       Narrated Abu Huraira:

          Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

    9. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.  Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331
    10. Brig. S.K. Malik wrote The Qur'anic Concept of War as a training manual for the army of Pakistan.  His analysis will help you to comprehend their strategy. Terror is both a means and an end.  This paragraph comes from the bottom of page 59. [Emphasis added.]

      Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only
      a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
      the opponent's heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be
      achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
      and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon
      the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him.
