Yesterday Russian President Valdimir Putin stood in front that tacky green granite wall at the United Nations general assembly and delivered a powerful speech. So who was this speech directed to? Read more

So Rodger Goodell finally announced his verdict against Tom Brady and the Patriots regarding DeflateGate and what can I say except I prediced this!
I’ve been saying for a long long time that the NFL doesn’t hold up justice as its standard. It holds up fairness. And look at the punishment the NFL brought against the Patriots: Tom Brady suspended for 4 games, a $1 million fine, and a loss of a first round draft pick. That’s unjust!
But to the mob of resentful, low-information sports fans, it’s only fair. The Patriots’s numerous victories is de facto proof that they cheat. And so DeflateGate provided an opportunity to punish them. Look at how the punishment singles out a single individual for no other reason than he is a prominent, successful man.
That’s what happens with fairness. All you can do is punish the successful.
Welcome to Barack Obama’s NFL
Last week at the National Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama told Christians to get off their high horse and stop judging Islam. Why? Because of the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition.
Many wonder how this supposed genius could spout such delusional malarkey. (excuse my language.)
Guys, the explanation is simple. Obama sympathizes, appeases, and allies himself with Islam, not because he believes in its tenets, but because they commonly despise the success of Christianity. Read more
The NFL’s treatment of Ray Rice shows it does not hold truth and justice up as standards for conduct. Instead, like the rest of America, it holds up fairness and knowledge. As a result, the vengeful rule of the mob is ruining football, just like Obama voters are ruining America.
Consider that Ray Rice already admitted to assaulting his fiancé. That’s the truth. He assaulted her. The prosecutors of that jurisdiction did not pursue charges. According to the law, justice was satisfied, and Mr. Rice walked a free man.
But the mob thought that was unfair. They rallied to demand the NFL punish Ray Rice somehow. They asked, “How is it that a running back who hits Mary Jane, a marijiuana cigarette, gets suspended for six games, but a running back who hits Mary Jane, a woman, gets nothing?”
So the NFL acquiesced to the mob. They handed Ray Rice a two game suspension. I ask, was that suspension just? Did Mr. Rice’s contract have provisions in it regarding domestic violence? Did the NFL have already standing policies in place regarding suspensions for domestic violence?
It was arbitrary and set a poor precedent. Remember that the authorities did not prosecute charges against Mr. Rice. However, the NFL wasn’t concerned with justice, it was concerned with quelling the mob.
But then TMZ got it’s hands on the elevator video of him actually hitting her. When the mob saw it, they rallied again. It’s not fair that Ray Rice play football at all!
And so the Ravens terminated Ray Rice’s contract. He lost his living, his income and the means to support the woman he hit, who ended up marrying him. The team is worse off, and the NFL has one fewer high-caliber running back on the field.
How is this additional punishment just? It also punished the victim of Ray Rice’s crime. Worst of all, women who may suffer domestic violence at the hands of NFL players are much less likely to report these crimes if they think it will ruin their livelihood.
What exactly did the TMZ video change? If the two game suspension was an adequate punishment before, what did the video reveal that required the NFL to indefinitely ban Ray Rice?
It didn’t change our concept of the truth. As far as I know neither Ray Rice or his woman denyed what happened. The problem is that the Obama voters who watch the NFL cannot conceptualize the truth.
Read this: “Ray Rice punched his girlfriend.” You conceptualized that information. Now go watch the video of him punching her. You don’t need to conceptualize it anymore. You know he punched her after seeing it so vividly. (JK. You don’t need to actually watch the video.)
The video heightened our knowledge of the event, changing it from conceptual to visceral. Since the mob acts by instinct not intellect, the video unleashed emotion.
Here’s something you guys need to understand. Truth compels justice. But fairness rests until knowledge stirs it up.
You’re asking, “What’s the difference?” Here it is. You can’t change the truth. Things are true weather you know it or not. But you can play around with knowledge by purposefully remaining ignorant or casting doubt unreasonably.
The video took away that wiggle room.
Before the video went viral, the Obama voters of Baltimore could plausibly remain Ray Rice fans. They might doubt the severity of the beating for example. But the video made the knowledge of the crime inescapable. Suddenly they all want to exchange their Rice Ravens jerseys.
To wrap this up, let’s turn to Barack Obama. That mob that demands the NFL be fair demands Obama rule fairly as its king. And so we see Obama play around with knowledge, purposefully remaining ignorant of truth, lest he be compelled to act. Consider his inaction after the Russians shot down the Malysians Airline jet, or when Musilims stormed Benghazi. He’s still getting to the bottom of those issues. The report from the blue ribbon panel is due soon. He will find out what happened! (Someday)
But unlike the NFL, he has no interest in quelling the mob. He stokes the mob.
When the Obama justice department stormed Furgeson, Missouri, they weren’t looking for the truth. The truth might condemn Michael Brown. They were stirring vengence against the cops to dole out some unprecedented, arbitrary punishments.
A lot of people were perplexed when Barack Obama said he didn’t have a strategy to deal with ISIS. I mean, he’s the president of the United States of America! It’s preposterous to think he couldn’t come up with something like a targeted air strike, or flash grenades, or a punitive school lunch program.
Guys, I can explain why he has no strategy. I can also explain why you are incredulous.
I wasn’t surprised when he said he didn’t have a strategy. In fact, I predicted this. He’s a liberal. The massive stumbling block to liberals is evil men.
But you were surprised for the same reason you were surprised Robin Williams offed himself. You bought into the perception of Barack Obama. Simply put, you thought he was a tough but ineffably cool character played by Will Smith.
So when ISIS committed atrocious crimes, you were ready for a rousing battle cry like Obama gave before he stormed the alien spacecraft that destroyed the White House in the movie Independence Day. Instead Barack Obama as played by Barack Obama spoke from the podium like a liberal who had been mugged. Not Will Smith.
To talk about a strategy, you need to first define the goal. If Obama’s goal was to destroy ISIS, he has myriad military options. He could send the Marines, Army, Air Force, or Navy Seals to engage the enemy. If cost was a concern, we could arm them with surplus raisins from the Department of Education.
This is the friggin’ United States Military! Make no mistake about it. They would pulverize ISIS. Soon the black flag of Islam would lay smoldering on the ground as the Star-Spangled Banner would proudly wave over the sands of Iraq.
And that’s the problem.
Obama’s goal is not to destroy an Islamic fighting force. When Old Glory rises above the flag of Islam in battle, that elevates a Christian country above an Islamic state. In the specious mind of simpletons such as Obama, that elevates Christianity above Islam.
History proves that Christianity is far superior to Islam. After the red flag of Islam rose above the fallen Constantinople, it all when downhill for the Prophet Mohammed’s followers. We Christians got revenge the best way. By living well.
So while Christians put sophisticated aircraft into flight, such as a Beoing 747, Muslim terrorists use primitive weapons such as box cutters to crash them out of the sky.
Islam fails. History documents Islam’s continued failure. The way of Jesus Christ succeeds beyond any expectation in any genetic pool it’s added. And to Barack Obama, that’s not fair!
Barack Obama doesn’t rule according to justice. He governs by holding up the standard of fairness. America demonstrates the Bible’s superior wisdom. That’s not fair to the Koran.
So he will not elevate America above Islam. He acts vengefully against America in order to humble it before Islam. That’s the essence of Islam. Submission.
Barack Obama’s goal with ISIS is to avoid war. So it’s no surprise that he has no strategy to achieve this goal. ISIS are brute animals. What form of diplomacy can you send to negotiate with rabid animals?
I predict it will come to light that the White House send emmisaries to negotiate terms of peace with ISIS, promising to appease them with money, land, oil rights, or formal statehood. But the outreach failed. ISIS’s goal is destruction and domination. There’s no room for compromise.
One last thing.
Obama is a liberal. So naturally he’s supposed to be against war categorically. That’s why the Nobel Committee awarded him the peace prize before his inauguration. And I explained before, he avoids war generally, which leads to more war.
Remember the ironic head bomp of God’s judgement. Obama has ironically started more wars after winning the world’s formost prize for peacemaking.
Obama’s White House overthrew Mormar Qudaffi in Lybia. And in Syria, he was prepared to act directly to overthrow Assad because of WMDs. So he’s certainly not categorically against war.
But what can we say about every military action he’s taken or not taken? In each instance it’s been to the benefit of hardcore Muslims.
Qudaffi was nominally Muslim but overall secular. Assad and Mubarack the same way. When the people of Iran rose against Macmood Amadenigab demanding moderation of Islamic rule, Obama did nothing.
I think the weapons ISIS wields were supplied by Obama. First in Lybia then in Syria.
It’s no surprise Obama says he has no strategy to deal with ISIS. The roof is falling in on him and the walls crumble around him. There’s not even time to sprint for a door.
Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?
Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.
President Obama announced new economic sanctions against Russia today. Guess what. Sanctions won’t work against Russia. They are communists! They place themselves under financial sanctions.
In fact, the Bolsheviks fought a revolutionary war against economic trade in October 1917. So when Obama orders more sanctions, they say, “Thank you, comrade.”
The New York Times reports that “Coordinated Sanctions Aim at Russia’s Ability to Tap Its Oil Reserves.” So Obama is punishing Russia by limiting their ability to drill for oil? Oh, Okay. Then what should we make of Obama’s efforts to limit the United States’ ability to drill for its oil?
I’ll answer for you since you’re too cowardly to criticize our first black president.
Obama’s punishing America.
(And I write this from my Peterbilt in the west Texas oilfield.)
I heard on the radio that Obama wants to hit the Russians by denying them access to important technologies. Could any of those technologies be related to spaceflight?
If so, we should first make sure there are no Americans still up in the international space station. Because the Russians are the only ones who can shuttle our
astronauts back to Earth since Obama put economic sanctions on NASA.
You noticing a pattern here?
This Sunday my pastor preached out of the book of Jonah. And we all got a good laugh out of God’s prophet falling asleep in the bottom of the boat during the storm.
Can we Americans really laugh at Jonah? Aren’t we a city on a hill? Yet we are rebelling against God’s commands. There’s a storm brewing all around the globe. Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran are all gearing up for war against us. It would be better for us if we were actually asleep to this storm.
But we’re not. We’re just rolling around the bilge like its a game.
Everything is a game to the over-entertained, sleep-deprived American.
Look at how Sleep is a theme in the Bible. Fools always sleep at the wrong time. For example at harvest when it’s time to work. Or most famously when Jesus asked his disciples to stay alert and pray right before his betrayal.
America found a folly worse than sleep. Entertainment.
You would think President Barack Obama would be happy after the debt deal ended the government shutdown. After all, he humiliated the Republicans, who submitted to his will and painfully gave in to his demands. No. You thought wrong. In a news conference today, Obama angrily uttered the most chilling words.
He said, “something something something … don’t listen to blogs, Fox News, or talk radio.”
Was this chilling because the president used his influence to curb free speech? No.
Was it chilling because of the suggestion he’d use his office to intimidate his political opponents? No. I’m not at all surprised by that anymore.
Was it chilling because the president obviously doesn’t have any clear policy objectives, he just wants to destroy one opponent after the other?
No! Look. I’m going to tell you why it’s chilling if you stop asking all these questions.
The ironic thing about ironic is that nobody even knows what ironic means.
The best we can gather is that it has something to do with mustaches.
If you’re like me, the egg is your favorite food. And if you’re like me, you grew up in the 1980s and ’90s under a constant barrage of attacks against egg-eating.
Eggs are bad for you, they’d say. Eggs contain the dietary triumvirate of evil: fat, cholesterol, and sodium. Well, the way that I eat them, they contain a lot of sodium … and ketchup.
Back in the ’90s when I would eat my eggs, on my first omelet, people would say, “Jimmy, you need to get your blood pressure checked. That’s enough salt!” On the second omelet, they would say, “Jimmy, that’s too many eggs. You need to get your cholesterol checked.” And then when I would finish my third omelet and wipe the plate with my buttery toast, my friends would watch me, just counting down the seconds until my imminent death.
