Hi to my family, friends, and readers:
As a pastor, I’ve always been careful about combining politics with my calling to ministry. I continue that care to this day by not speaking about my personal preferences for political office when I proclaim or teach the Word in that official role. I simply ask people to vote God’s values and to vote for the best person who champions His values.
However, right now I am not writing to you as a “pastor” or “elder” but as a friend or brother and as a citizen and voter.
As a teacher of history, I believe that the coming Presidential election is the most important since 1860. I do not exaggerate when I say that it is probably the most important vote of my lifetime and yours–perhaps in our nation’s history.
- Our nation is divided
- We are broke (financially) and deeply in debt to hostile nations.
- The national security of the United States has never been more compromised.
- We have no strategic foreign policy.
- We are under attack from the outside and inside
- Our southern border is overrun. And radical Islam is staging in Venezuela and Margarita Island.
- Nuclear weapons are in the hands of three renegade powers who will not hesitate to use them. This President is all hat and no cowboy.
- We are poised to abandon our close ally, Israel.
The current President has run fast and loose in the greatest office in the world–that of President of the United States. He is in way over his head. He may know about community-action in Chicago and what the liberal elites at Columbia believe about how wonderful the U.S. would be as a socialist nation, but a socialist nation was never God’s intent for our great Union of states.
We are a light on a hill. We are a beacon of freedom and liberty, where each person can aspire to be what God has placed in his/her heart or mind to be and do. That requires freedom. No one is free as long as he or she is in debt. No one is free as long as he or she is required to have health insurance of the government’s choosing. No one is free as long as political correctness trumps reason and common sense. No one is free when our national security is continually undermined by the Commander-in-Chief who is sworn to protect and defend from all enemies foreign AND domestic. Who will protect us from HIM? And no one is free when their nation’s courts legislate values opposed to God’s values.
Since 9/11 the ancient Ottoman Empire has reared its head and come back to life. Islam sees the opportunity under this President to spread across the world. He has done NOTHING to stop it. As a matter of fact, he has helped by granting access to secret FBI research facilities in the form of a tour to demonstrate our techniques and facilities. He invites known Islamic collaborators to access the white house. He has been credited with several military victories but these were not his doing, he simply took credit for them. And he continually undermines Israel’s friendship and sovereignty.
Islam is a greater threat than ever, yet it’s all talk when it comes to Obama’s dealings with Iran and Syria. Now he has again capitulated to an enemy by agreeing to abandon an airbase in Pakistan. Pakistan is evicting the U.S. from the drone base responsible for gathering intelligence on our enemies. We know that he will not hesitate to abandon Israel to her enemies should Israel choose a preemptive, unilateral strike.
I’m not only voting for Newt Gingrich, but I’m assisting in his campaign and have given a small contribution. I urge you to follow my example. Why?
Barack Hussein Obama is a politician. Newt Gingrich is a Statesman. What’s the difference?
James Freeman Clarke said, “A politician thinks about the next election; a Statesman thinks about the next generation.“
If we do not elect a leader of the caliber of Newt Gingrich, Obama will win again. If he wins, no one will have to worry about the next generation. There won’t be one! Our nation is at a crossroad. Most people sense it. They can feel something huge pending, waiting to happen.
If you review his videos on “My Best of Newt” post and recall his contributions as former Speaker of the House back in the 90’s, you’ll see why Newt is absolutely the man for this season of our great history. Other candidates are sincere and would likely do well with help. However, like Churchill in the 1930’s and 40’s, Newt sees the issues with crystal clarity and knows how to navigate in Washington to get the job done.
Since any President can only keep his word to the nation if he has the Congress and Senate WITH him, this is the one election where we really need the candidate to be a Washington insider who can work with the House and Senate on both sides of the aisle to get the job done. And Newt’s already shown us that he can keep a “Contract with America.”
I highly recommend the following two sites to get you up-to-speed on Newt’s qualifications and “21st Century Contract with America”:
2. Newt’s official site Newt.org
And if you want to help, you can visit the New Hampshire website (http://www.newthampshire.com/) and offices in Manchester. I’ll be there from time to time as a volunteer. Drop in. Or better yet, sign on as a volunteer.
Love to talk to you anytime about why Newt should be the next President of the United States.
Make sure you’re registered to vote and PLEASE don’t skip the NH primary on Jan. 10, 2012 (for those of you who are NH residents). Make sure you’re registered to vote.
Thanks for reading this rather lengthy email. But I know you care about our nation too.
I believe with Newt Gingrich that “Every citizen who is concerned about our nation’s safety and security should see this compelling and powerful documentary.” Please take a couple of minutes to view the documentary trailer at AmericaAtRisk.com then return to finish reading my post.
We are in deep trouble here in the United States of America. I am angry. My anger comes from grief over the approaching loss of my nation to domestic and external enemies. Our past (under Clinton and Bush) and current governments (under Barack Hussein Obama–either due to willful ignorance, fear, or treason) have not understood the true nature or source of evil facing our nation in the totalitarian worldview known as Islam. Islam has a religious ARM, but it is not a religion. It is a world government–the Fourth Reich. The express purpose of this coming government is to rule the world under its god–Allah. Since all must submit to Allah in order for their “religion of peace” to actually work, killing, murder, rape, lying, torture, are all legitimate means to their end–a new, world Caliphate.
Our own federal government will not allow government employees to use words that implicate Muslims or Islam in the war on terror. A sort of Islamic censorship has been instituted in government agencies on the watch of this President. This development is so ludicrous that if it weren’t for the present danger it poses to our future as a people, it would be unbelievable. Who would have thought that our nation could get to the place where it no longer recognizes a clear and present danger from outside and inside? I have begun to question the current Administration’s true agenda?
The war on terror needs a new name.
By avoiding the real enemy, our government participates in the creation of terror. We must have new leadership that truly “gets it.” I personally will not vote for ANYONE who does not understand this present and future danger. The next President of the United States of America must be someone who understands the times and knows what the people should do. If not, our nation will not survive the next four years. Those serving in Congress and the Senate, need to understand these issues. And people serving at the local level in cities, towns, and hamlets and villages of America need to understand what’s at stake in allowing Muslims special privileges in opposition to our Constitution, foundational documents, and the laws and rights of these United States. We must also go back to the original source on the purpose of government–the Bible [see Romans 13].
And the body of Christ must not neglect its ministry of intercession. Our unity is under attack from within and without. These times are not unlike the Civil War years in America. The question then and now is: will we continue to be a United States of America? Or will we divide into many little nations? or Regions? Behind the polarization, behind the division are spirits. Demonic spirits.
I will NEVER live under Islam or bow the knee to its demon-god–Allah. I will not make concessions for its ways or its demands when they are contrary to the laws of our land or of the God who provides the grace, freedom, or framework for our laws and freedoms. NEVER! I’d rather go and die with a group of people that stand against Islam–its hatred and injustice against women, children, and all that is good–than to give in to or participate in a Fourth Reich [under the demon spirit animating Islam and Hitler’s National Socialism].
Perhaps God has raised up an enemy (a beast–Rev. 13:1-8?) to come against us for our many sins and the decadence of our society. Perhaps Islam is that sword that will experience some measure of victory against us (Rev. 13.7). I don’t know for sure. But I do know this . . .
I will stand with God and his people (Eph. 6.13)–both followers of Jesus and believing Jews of the remnant spoken of by the Apostles & Prophets . I will stand with any American who has an open heart to our foundations and the Judeo-Christian heritage which is embodied in our Constitution and early federal institutions; and advocates displacement against our spiritual enemies. I will stand with any world citizen who values freedom under the true and ONLY God–Yahweh. I will stand with any Muslim who renounces Allah, his mad messenger, and Antichrist Mahdi in order to receive the resurrected Jesus of Nazareth as his/her Savior, Lord, and King.
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies [PEOPLE], but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places [DEMONS who USE people].” (Ephesians 6:12, NLT)
Demons are not defeated by violence (kill their host, they simply move to another one–like zombies), but by warfare-intercession and Christ’s power. The “War on Terror” needs to be renamed, “The War on Satan” and it is fought in the prayer closet and in half-nights of prayer together. With a newspaper in one hand and our hearts and minds in the heavenlies, where we’re seated with Christ (Col. 3.1-3) [the source of our authority]. Read my book if you’ve never heard any of this or want to know more.
We are not powerless against this enemy. We have weapons that are not carnal [worldly].
“For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:4–5, ESV)
We have supernatural weapons. We have the power of God. And what’s even more awesome and wonderful . . . We have the AUTHORITY of Christ to WAR and WIN in the spirit against this presumptuous imposter. We are victorious OVERCOMERS!
“And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” (Luke 10:18–19, ESV)
Will someone stand with me against His enemies? God ALONE is our Fortress and our Victory (Ps. 91) Let’s INTERCEDE.
