Democrats continue their government shutdown
Harry Reid refuses to even allow any discussion in the Senate of multiple bills passed by the House and sent to the Senate to allow functions in the federal government to resume operations. These multiple bills would allow, among other functions, the VA and national parks to continue operations.
Obama is doing his part in keeping the government shutdown unrealistically inconvenient to the population by selectively spending money to barricade certain monuments in DC, and not barricade others. To spit in the World War II veterans' faces, Obama spent the money to barricade the World War II memorial, while leaving the other memorials and monuments in DC unbarricaded.
Yeah. Like some wannabe thugs working for Obama will stop the people who fought up the beaches of Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima, Normandy, and fought through the jungles of Guadalcanal, New Guinea, Bougainville, and slugged it out with the Germans at Bastogne, and engaged the suicidal Japanese in face-to-face combat on Okinawa, and stood up to the thousands of kamikazes, from visiting some monument erected to them in honor of their sacrifice, fortitude, and victory.
However, the Obama monument to the Al Qaeda 9/11 terrorists was open for business...(that would be the White House).

Reid said Boehner wont accept yes for an answer.
I thought I was throwing him a lifeline, the Nevada Democrat said, noting his proposal to go to conference once the government is open.All we want you to do is open the government.
Reid said he is willing to talk about spending, agriculture, parks or anything else Boehner wants to talk about except Obamacare.http://www.rollcall. com/news/leaders_obama_fail_to _reach_budget_deal-228109-1.ht ml?pos=hftxt

Why are the Democrats refusing to stop the government shutdown?
Harry Reid is keeping the government shut down. Obama is spitting in the faces of patriotic Americans.
Why is that?

That is so terrible, a rap artist killed. Sadly we've also seen a lot of rappers killed in this country. Most of them killed by obviously Democrat leaning thugs. Perhaps it's time to jail a top Democrat. A lot of empty cells at Gitmo, one more Muslim there won't make much of a difference.

143-year-old law has Washington treading gingerly during shutdown
Steve Liesman CNBC
22 hours ago
Lawmakers feel fenced in by an 1870 law.
KEVIN LAMARQUE / Reuters
Lawmakers feel fenced in by an 1870 law.
Administration officials now live in fear of a 19th-century law that could get them fired, penalized or even imprisoned if they make the wrong choices while the government is shut down.
The law is the Antideficiency Act, passed by Congress in 1870 (and amended several times), which prohibits the government from incurring any monetary obligation for which Congress has not appropriated funds.
In shutting down the government, most memos cite the law as the reason. The Government Accountability Office says employees who violate the Antideficiency Act may be subject to disciplinary action, suspension and even "fines, imprisonment, or both."
CNBC has learned that in several executive branch departments, high-level staff members review individual decisions about what government activities to allow for fear of running afoul of the Antideficiency Act. One White House official said he has advised his employees not to check their email or cellphones. Under the act, even volunteering for government service is expressly prohibited.
In a memo to his department employees today, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew cited the law as the reason for reduced staffing.
"For the duration of this impasse, as required by the Antideficiency Act and directed by OMB, the Department will be required to operate with only the minimal staffing level necessary to execute only certain legally exempted activities," Lew wrote.
The only exemptions to the shutdown concern "emergencies involving the safety of human life or the protection of property," according to government documents. That has meant airports and the Postal Service are open, Social Security checks get paid and federal prisons and courts will operate as normal as do most national security functions including the military and the Central Intelligence Agency. But national parks and museums are closed along with big parts of the departments of Education and Commerce
Congress passed the law as part of a struggledating back to the nation's foundingfor control over the power of the purse. Some presidents, such as Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, would incur obligations for which Congress had to appropriate funds after the fact.
What is ironic is that Congress in shutting down the government has to at least to some extent given up the power of the purse to the executive branch. Under the broad guidelines of what constitutes an emergency or threat to life or property, OMB now more or less decides what gets funded and what doesn't. But that latitude is limited by the fear of officials that, sometime after the event, a given decision is found to have been in violation of the Antideficiency Act.

You are exactly correct. Harry Reid is a lying little pansy ass girly voiced weasel. A liar to the core.
This is what the Democrats have become. No integrity.
Harry Reid will say anything. This is nothing new. For example, do you recall this not too long ago?
"PolitiFact: Harry Reid's Pants Are On Fire"
"PolitiFact, the independent fact checking entity, has concluded that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's accusation that Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for ten years is so unfounded that it deserves the group's "pants on fire" label."
Like most Democrats, Harry Reid is a scumbag.

Obama Is The King God Has Given To Reign Over America In The Last Days
And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them Now therefore hearken unto their voice and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
1 Samuel 8
God sets up kings, and takes them down
The bible clearly teaches that it is God and not man who appoints rulers over the affairs of men:
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Romans 13:1
All through the bible we see God set up kings for a purpose, and take them down for a purpose. Sometimes God raises up a ruler to bless His people, like He did with King David. And sometimes He sets up a ruler by whom the people will be judged, as He did with Saul. But God does not only set up kings over His own people, He sets up kings over all people. Such was the case with Pharaoh of Egypt:
For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Romans 9:17
The story of Pharaoh and the Red Sea
Now, the story of Pharaoh and the people of Egypt is a great story because for a long, long time Egypt prospered under the rule of Pharaoh like no nation on earth ever had before them. They were the America of the ancient world. Egypt grew in size and wealth and in might and in power till no other nation could stand against them.
#994385 Oct 3, 2013
Just taking a casual glance on the outside of Egypt you would think that they had Gods blessing, but they did not. Egypt was a wicked, godless nation who enslaved the Jews for four centuries, and made human sacrifices to their gods. And after 400 long years of oppressing Gods chosen people, Gods patience and long-suffering had come to an end.
So God raised up Moses
And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. Exodus 3:15
We all know the story of how God called Moses to be the leader of the Jews. To lead them first out of the land of Egypt, and then into the land of Promise Israel! Moses obeyed God and went and confronted Pharaoh and preached to him what God told him to say. Now, when God commissioned Moses to preach to Pharaoh, He knew full well that Pharaoh would ultimately reject what Moses would tell him. But just as God raised up Moses to preach, God also raised up Pharaoh to be preached to.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt. Exodus 11:9
and God raises up Pharaoh
Now God had also raised up Pharaoh to be a mighty king. But Pharaohs heart was wicked and would not obey the servant of the Lord. So there came a day, when God was about to free the Jews from slavery, that God also used Pharaoh for a mighty purpose. God, knowing that Pharaoh would never repent though he was given multiple opportunities to, used him and Moses to show the world the power of the God of Abraham. But this demonstration of power would have markedly and drastically outcomes.
And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. Exodus 14:17
God used Moses in a glorious way, replete with the miracle of the parting of the Red Sea. God used Pharaoh as part of the miracle of the Red Sea. In Moses He showed His power and glory by setting the Jews free in a way that would be retold throughout time for all eternity. In Pharaoh God showed His power and glory by drowning Pharaoh and his entire army when the walls of water came crashing back down. Both men raised up by God, both men put into their position of authority by God, with one man winding up in Heaven, and the other still burning in Hell.
And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. Exodus 14:27,28
Whats the take-away here? That God judged an entire nation for the wickedness of one man who refused to repent. Remember that.

America begins by trusting the Holy God of Israel
America, for every year since 1776, has done nothing but grow in might, in power and in strength and in wealth. We are, as many of us are fond of saying, the greatest nation on the face of the earth. We got our start with the Puritans who came over at the leading of God, and set up a brave, new nation. The first text book ever used in our schools and universities was the Holy Bible. James Madison said this:
We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind of self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.- James Madison
Wow, what a great start! A nation founded on submission to God and His commandments. But the story doesnt end there..
As we grew as a nation, we became mighty like to no other nation to ever exist. And as we grew, we began to forget. We forgot that God had created us, had sustained us, had done such mighty deeds and demonstrations of His power to bless America. We sing God Bless America, our money says In God We Trust, but somewhere along the line we stopped trusting. We stopped seeking His face. We began to trust in our own strength.

God is removed, chaos ensues
World War II was the last time that the whole world was at war, and it was a war that we almost didnt win. My father, Robert Grider, 2nd Lt. United States Air Force, Retired, used to tell me that they will never teach in history class just how close we came to losing that war. But we didnt lose, we won. And after we won the war we did something God really liked. We recognized the right for the just-reborn baby nation of Israel to exist on May 14, 1948, and long-awaited bible prophecy was fulfilled in the rebirth of Israel. But in the very next generation we did something very, very bad. We turned away from God.
The 1960′s saw the removal of prayer from the public schools, the removal of the Ten Commandments from our court houses, sexual promiscuity, open homosexual abominations, and the rise of legal baby killing through abortion. The result of that was a drastic increase in violent crime, race riots in the streets, an entire generation of children hooked on drugs and alcohol, skyrocketing divorce rates, and public schools that needed armed police to keep order. We told God to go, and He did.
The harvest of bitter fruit
The Sixties were a long time ago, but the rotten seeds that were planted in that generation have come to full fruition in ours. In 2012 America, Gods name is still plastered all over everything, we have mega-churches with 20,000 in attendance but His Spirit and power are no longer there. We hold a National Day of Prayer, but it is powerless. Nothing changes. We have no final authority, the absolute Truth that guided and sustained the Puritans is something we know nothing of as a nation.
In 2013, we are a nation that is drowning in a debt so large that the numbers, nearly 20 trillion now, have no meaning. Each year nearly 400,000 babies are executed for conveniences sake, and we elect leaders based on their not taking the ability to kill babies away from us. We have no respect for Gods word, Sunday is treated like any other day of the week. Even if we believe it, we dare not speak out loud that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven as the bible declares Him to be. We have lost the ability to discern between good and evil. We expose children to endless ads for alcohol and tobacco. Our society is saturated in sex and violent imagery. Nearly half of all the movies made in the last 10 years have a demonic theme to them. We wouldnt know God if He showed up in any of our churches, and neither would we want Him to be there.

We are the American generation that has filled the cup of Gods indignation and wrath. So He gave us the king we deserved.
He gave us Barack Hussein Obama.
America gets a king
Barack Obama, 44th president of the United States of America. He is so enthusiastically in favor of sacrificing babies on the altar of Planned Parenthood that when he was a state senator he voted 3 times against the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. The bill recognized babies born after attempted abortions as persons and required doctors to give them care. Obama voted to withhold that care. 3 times. Under his recently-passed Obamacare bill, abortion is now taxpayer-funded. That means that all America shares in the killing of these babies, their blood is upon all of us.
#994390 Oct 3, 2013
Obama was raised a Muslim and, though he has said he has since become a christian, nothing he says or does is in line with a profession of faith in Christ. He rarely, if ever attends church. He glorifies homosexuality and all manners of sexual perversion, and in the process has used his office of president to mandate the forced acceptance of homosexuality on our society. Newsweek magazine called him the first gay president. He is the first American president to openly back and endorse gay marriage, and again use the office of president to make that desire a reality. He proclaimed the entire month of June to be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Pride Month in America. In fact, he made it a national ordinance:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2012 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people. Newsweek quote.

Barack Obama stands openly for the things that God is against. He takes great pride is doing so. He campaigned with these things as the reasons why you should vote for him and re-elect him to the office of president. The first time he ran for president he was largely an unknown entity, and he used great guile and deceit to become elected. But when we all went to the polls this week to again decide to vote him in or not, he was a very well-known candidate.
We didnt vote with ballots so much as we voted with our hearts, with our passions, and with our national vision of who America shall be for the next four years. We have said with our votes that the likes and passions of Barack Hussein Obama are the likes and passions of the America people. Obama is for abortion, we are for abortion. Obama is for gay marriage, we are for gay marriage. Obama is for glorifying sexual perversion, we are for glorifying sexual perversion. And the endless list goes on.
We voted him in because he is the manifestation of what is inside our hearts as a nation. He is the embodiment of our spiritual dysfunction, the living, breathing representation of our disdain for the commandments of the Holy God of Israel. Obama is anti-Christ, and we love it. Obama openly mocks the God of the bible by his love for Islam, and we stand and cheer him till our throats go hoarse. We have told God that we will no longer follow His ways nor submit to His commandments, and God has given us a king to rule over us to fulfill that desire. We have desired evil and refused the good so that now God has given us over to a reprobate mind.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Romans 1
America is judged
As a nation, we have been given over to judgment, to uncleanness, to, as the bible says, a reprobate mind. We cannot repent because we dont think we have done anything wrong. We see ourselves as progressive, open-minded, non-judgmental and all-inclusive, and not as wicked, vile, sinful and rebellious against God as His word says we are. We have changed the Truth of God into the lie of the Devil, and God has given us a king to rule over us who will make sure we cannot find our way back.
Barack Hussein Obama is Gods judgment on America for our sins, and it is a judgment from which I dont think we shall ever recover. Right up to the very moment he and all his men drowned in the Red Sea, Pharaoh was sure of his victory. He was deluded unto death, as is Obama as he leads us ever downward towards a ruinous heap.
But it is not too late for you, as an individual, to throw off the yoke of this oppression and throw yourself upon Gods mercy:
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4
