I am truly upset with President Obama and his administration on how they have handled the Libya situation to this day.
The President and the administration are openly lying to the American people and continue to do so about the terrorist attacks in which cost the lives of four Americans.
Two month later and still, there are no answers. The President refuses to come out with the truth. He is more concerned about his re-election then doing what is right, talking to the American people. Many believe that we will not hear what really happened in Benghazi until after the election.
I saw a Obama announcement given by the President about the storm that is hitting the East Coast. Instead of being concerned about the possible damages or even death this storm may cause, he seems to be more concerned that people may not make it to the polls in time and vote for him and the Democrats.
Obama is telling the people to go and vote now before the storm hits a large area of the East Coast. He even offered transportation to those who may have difficulties making it it to the polls.
I believe that Barack Obama has shown what his priorities are: to get re-elected at any cause. He also revealed his character, he sat by while four brave Americans got killed, even-though they ask for help and were denied help three times.
Is that real leadership, expected from a commander in chief? President Obama has not show any leadership at all and I believe, he is concealing the truth about Benghazi because it is not convenient so close to the elections. This current administration openly lied and continue lie to the American people for purely political reasons. How in the world can anybody vote for a administration that has shown no transparency?
Besides the failing economy, the unemployment rate and a debt of over 16 trillion dollars, this Libya fiasco should be enough for the people to see what kind of leader President Obama is and will be in the next four years.
This will be a big story as more and more truth is coming out and eventually we will find out what really happened. We are voting in a few days and if anyone leans towards voting for Obama, I would seriously think about it, given all the new developments coming to light.
If you are a first time female time voter, you may want to save yourself for another guy, not the first guy that comes along and fools you with big flattering words and then screws and dumps you. Which may not apply to you Lena Dunham because you have a pretty cushy job with HBO, while young girls fresh out of college can’t find a job.
President Obama does not want to speak about Libya because of the election and there is nothing more important for the liberals including the liberal media to get him re-elected. He has not addressed the people and the parents and wives of these four brave men are still waiting for answers. I feel the pain and frustration of the four families that lost their loved one.
If this would have happened under a Republican President, the liberals and the liberal media would have been all over this. President Obama has so far avoided to address the Benghazi attack and will be silent because it does not fit with his rhetoric about Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama Bin Laden is dead. Instead we see the opposite, Al Qaeda is very much alive in North Africa. This President would have us believe that the war on terror is just about over and the enemy is defeated, which is far from the truth.
Our enemies are regrouping and they want to kill Americans wherever they can. This administration does not like or use the term “war on terror” much and seems to be either naive or is blind to the fact that there are radical terrorist all over the world, including in this country, ready to kill Americans. I cannot vote for somebody that has shown a poor character, terrible leadership and will do whatever it takes to win this years election.
The President is suppose to be working for the people and protect the people of this great land. President Obama has been on the campaign trail for the last 2 years. He courts the liberals in Hollywood and stays away from tough questions. He’d rather be “Eye Candy” for the ladies at the View and appears on MTV answering stupid questions that have nothing to do with current issues, foreign policies etc.
We are a free country and everybody can choose who they will vote for. I respect that. But instead of being led by emotions , people should look at the facts. The Obama administration has failed and it will be four more years of the same if re-elected.
This year will be one of the closest elections ever and it seems that the “anointed one” or as the “messiah” as the press called him in 2008. I’m not much of a political oriented writer, but somehow I’m really ticked off about this whole Libya situation. The truth will come out and it will haunt President Obama, re-elected or not.
I’m just ticked off seeing a President being silent about Benghazi and is more concerned about being President four more years than running this country and protect it’s people and come out with what really happened in Libya before the elections.
Shame on this administration for not being transparent and forthright about Benghazi. There is way more to the story and it will shock people once the truth is finally revealed. Unfortunately we will not know much more until after the elections. Before you vote this November 6th, remember the four Americans that gave their lives for us.

13 Then they sent to Him some of the Pharisees and the Herodians, to catch Him in His words. 14 When they had come, they said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are true, and care about no one; for You do not regard the person of men, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not? 15 Shall we pay, or shall we not pay?”
But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, “Why do you test Me? Bring Me a denarius that I may see it.” 16 So they brought it.
And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” They said to Him, “Caesar’s.”
17 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”
And they marveled at Him.
Here in Mark 12, we do not see Jesus bashing Caesar, and Caesar was a very godless man. Jesus did not sit around and start complaining about him either. Agreeing that we are to be like Jesus Christ, we should always do what Jesus did, for He was our example.
Vengeance is not ours..but belongs to the Lord. 1.Romans 12:19
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
Romans 12:18-20 (in Context) Romans 12 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations
For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The LORD will judge His people.”
So, it is unfitting then for us to dwell on politics. Sister Adrienne…obey God’s call on your life. Post things that do relate to Bible prophecy as a benefit to the Kingdom of Heaven (if you’re working for the Lord). This constant dwelling on Obama/Romney might hurt the Kingdom of Heaven and lead people astray from the Truth of God’s Word. It is a diversion by the enemy in which many of us are falling prey to. We must NOT allow Satan to have his way. We are God’s children, and we have no need to meddle in the worldly things because we are not of this world.
1 John 4: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
1 John 4:4
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
I believe in both the New and Old, obviously..but I look at the Bible as a whole and I spend just as much time in the Old Testament. It is very prophetic. So, if both of us know what the Word of God says, and we both believe it is the infallible Word of God, and we believe in the Trinity… why are we are we all in disagreement? Romans 8:31, What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
I think we’re all very bad about this from time to time, but shouldn’t we all pray real hard for the Holy Spirit to lead us before we write/speak? Should we not pray abou these things ardently to the Lord and see what the Lord would say?
Every leader was appointed for his time, and for God’s purpose. I pray for Obama that he will know the Lord some day as his Savior and that he will repent. I pray that Romney will know the Lord as his Savior and truly know the Lord. Obama admits he is Muslim, and Romney is Mormon. Neither one truly know Jesus Christ, and if you don’t know Jesus Christ, you are not going to heaven. These men will suffer greatly some day, and God loves both of them very much and does not want them to go to hell…however, the enemy, Satan does!
So, why are we not, as believers in Jesus Christ, not focusing on their salvation and redemption instead of which one is better suited as a President? This earth is quickly passing away right now as we speak. Sister, the time is at hand. None of these things matter! It does not matter who says what about who, or who in fact is voted for. Again, I say, none of it is important. And if you have read the whole Bible, cover to cover, and studied it, then you know what I am saying is the truth.
The only thing that matter..THE ONLY THING…is the condition of the soul, because the soul is forever in hell or forever in heaven…there is no in between. And, sister, we were only made to serve God, and God alone. That’s it. The reason you and I woke up this morning is because God allowed us to wake up. He allowed us another chance to make our walk straight with Him. He is giving us another chance to witness to the lost. We as Amabassadors for Christ are all called to witness. Are politicaly debates going to win the lost?
No. All they do is cause disputes and disruptions. I am thoroughly ashamed at the body of Christ right now, for we are not focusing on the thing at hand–repentance! Brining the lost to Christ! My god, this whole world is SOON going to be turned upside down and we are all concerned about who sits in the seat as president? Doesn’t anyone know that it does not matter? God will choose who will win and who will lose. God has His reasons. What we think and what we do will not matter. It is all up to God.
Let’s focus, all of us, on the real issue at hand: win people to Christ. Sharing the world events as they relate to prophecy does help bring people to Christ..that’s why I do it. It shows those who are living in unrepentance and those who do not know Christ that the Bible is ever true and that they have little time..thus, bringing them homeward. These political debates do not benefit the kingdom of heaven.
Let me ask you: It is the most important question, we as believers should ask every day. We are supposed to be like Jesus Christ..He was and is our example. I think we can agree on that as Christians.
So, when it comes right down to it, what would Jesus do?
All I can say is vote the booger out!
(chuckle) I know you mean well, Lyn.
Yes, I’ve read the bible cover to cover at least three or four times in my life. I still read a little of it pretty much daily and meditate on it. I don’t just stay in the NT, but also read out of the old, but I continue to spend a lot of time in the NT. I firmly believe everything the bible says; it’s why my theme is “bible warrior” on my blog. I really think we believe exactly the same on the basics of Christianity, in terms of dogma; it’s what the overall message is that is where we differ.
I believe that Jesus expected us to live what He said on a daily basis and make living decisions based upon His teachings. In other words, we’re to apply the bible to our lives — not just the parts we like either. We’re to apply the tough parts, like turn the other cheek, love thy neighbor as thy self, etc.
Don’t worry, Lyn. It will all work out. I’m not mad at you or anyone else here; I just hate it when we don’t get along.
Well, I promised myself that I wouldn’t get into further arguments about who the better candidate is, especially with you. You are one of the first to comment on my blog and teach me about blogging, twitter, etc. Christians are losing friends right and left over this election. It just saddens me. I’m not mad at you, Freddy. You’re certainly entitled to your opinion.
Can I ask just one thing, please?
Could you take some time and listen to MSNBC too, since you’re digesting so much FOX news? It would be a better balance. Yes, I know that CNN is a little of both, but you need some left winger news to balance out that FOX stuff, seriously. It’s completely off the charts with widely skewed news; of course, so is MSNBC, but then at least you would come off with two completely alternative points of view and you might wind up somewhere back in the middle. Who can know?
Anyway, I just want us all to get along, you know? Jesus loves the peacemakers, right? ; )
So no hard feelings, I hope. I think Satan’s having a field day right now with all the Christians at one another over the election. Well, God bless, Freddy,
Love in Christ, Adrienne
Hi Adrienne, I’m just voicing my opinion, just as you did on your blog. We cannot always agree or like every post a person may write, otherwise what’s the purpose? I am stating what I am feeling and I believe I’m not alone in this. I’m not sure why you singled out Fox News. I do watch Fox News and yes, they have a conservative view among all the other Cable News stations. I watch CNN and they are from time to time critical of President Obama. You have to admit that most of the time however, they lean towards the more liberal side in support of the current administration. I don’t think that I am judgmental or hypocritical when it comes to my opinion about the Obama administration and the last four years. What would be fair Adrienne, not to point out that the President and the administration is continue to lie about the Libya situation? He is getting a free pass from most liberal news media outlets but I will not give him a pass on what happened in Libya. Have you not seen the father speak about the death of his son and how he after he found out that the request for help was denied came out and spoke to the press? The parents of the four slain Americans want answers and they are not getting them. That’s why I am angry with the President, he cares more about campaigning to win the re-election than coming forth with the truth about what really happened in Libya. There is a cover up and I believe that it has something to do with weapons that involves Turkey and Syria. The anger that I have is not un-biblical, it is as Lyn said a righteous indignation. As I said, there are many that feel the same way, including Democrats. This will come to light one day, the President just does not want to address this before November the 6th. Benghazi was a major failure. Besides Libya, he did not keep his promises, Guantanamo is still open, the unemployment rate did not drop to around 5% and he did not cut the deficit in half, in fact, he added 6 trillion. There are many more reasons why I do not support President Obama, but it has nothing to do with his ethnic background as some may think or the person. I just don’t like his policies and the fact that he flip flops on many issues just to gain votes. Look, I know that no politician is perfect, just like us, but I rather vote for someone that has laid out a plan and see what will happen in the next 4 years if Romney should win. Can’t get much worse. If Obama wins, I will respect him as the President and pray for him as we are told in the Word. We ought to pray for our leaders. As I said, politics and faith are not a very good mix and I don’t really like to write political stuff, but this Libya thing prompted me to do so. I feel for the parents, spouses and children of these four brave man. I can only imagine their grief. I also believe that it was a major mistake for Obama to attend a fundraiser in Las Vegas while the violence went on in Libya.
TO Warrioress… And I am not trying to trick you or trap you up, btw. I’m just trying to have an honest, heart to heart meaningful discussion with you, from a biblical perspective. Simple and to the point. 😉 I’m attempting to shed some light on a subject using sound, biblical doctrine, without opinion.
Okay. Then that settles it. We both believe the Bible is the infalliable Word of God, and that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. What else is there, really, to debate? What does the Word of God say about all of the things being done in this day and the people doing these things?(these were rhetorical questions) So, my final question, have you really, truly and honestly, page to page, read and studied and pondered and meditated on the entire Bible and all that is written therin? Be completely, one hundred percent honest.
I’m assuming you’re asking me, and the answer is yes, I do. Absolutely.
Off the subject, let me ask you something. Do you believe Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven and that the Bible is the infalliable Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit?
If I am to be honest with God’s Word… we should not talk badly about any leader because, good or bad, God places them there for a reason. I know your feelings, but these are mine, okay? Obama was placed as our President because he is going to be a part of fulfilling some sort of prophecy. I am NOT saying he is the Antichrist..I am just saying ‘prophecy’ in general, because prophecy must be fulfilled.
We are commanded to pray for our leaders, whether we like them or not. Most of the political websites who bash…no…this is not a godly thing and we as Christians are not to engage in that sort of thing. In the grand scheme of things, however, it is okay for a Christian to be righteously angry because of the sin abounding in this world and the denial of sin in itself. It is okay for us to be upset..but we must be upset at the right person….Satan and his kingdom of hell. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood…” Ephesians 6:10-20 However, Jesus was angry with the people for their sin. God was angry at the people for their sin. As for me, I get upset at the denial of sin. I sin. I make mistakes. But I call my sin SIN.
I will not sugar coat my sin or water down God’s word. So the fact that people sin does not anger me because I sin. But the fact that the people deny that it is sin and choose to live in a lukewarm state angers me..and if you have the Holy Spirit living inside of your spirit, you are going to feel God’s anger because He is a part of you. SO things that make God angry will make you angry…even when you yourself mess up and disobey him, you will be angry with yourself because that is the Holy Spirit ocnvicting you.
Without conviction, sister, it is impossible to come to repentance. We are the feet of God who carry His Word, and sometimes, unfortunately, love involves correction. Love isn’t always the pretty things, the nice things, the sugary things…but love is also sometimes correction, repromand, and suffering the consequences of disobedience. The Lord corrects those whom He loves.
When I came to your site the other week and we hashed it out, remember how I explained I was trying to make sense with you out of love…that ultimately, it is your website to post what you want to post…so I can’t just sit there and keep going on at you. It’s your space on the internet. In the same way, this is Freddy’s space. He, like most of us, has it open for comments…so it’s okay when people oppose something… but we must always be respectful and out of love.
Not to start anything or have negative feelings between us, I say this with love, I could sense some anger and judgment in the things you wrote here. Maybe you did not intend or mean for it that way..but that’s how it came across. So my point in telling you this is this: maybe you’re taking Freddy wrong as well. I don’t think he hates or judges anyone. We are humans and we have feelings about things. We state how things make us feel. This is not a judgment. To judge someone is to say, for example, “That woman is wearing a short dress. I do not know this woman. However, becuase she is wearing a short dress, she is a prostitute.” That is a judgment. To say, “That woman is wearing a short dress. I will pray for her because she really should wear something more covering. She might be causing men to lust and to sin.” Is not a judgment..that is an observation and a statement of what ‘could’ happen.
God bless you 😉
My point is that we’ve all been angry about this election and judged, and have probably written this or that negativity about the candidate we don’t prefer. I don’t think God holds us accountable for it, though, until we know better. Short of discussion in comments, I’m endeavoring not to down Mitt Romney in my postings. Doing this also helps to keep me from being angry. Angry, political Christians are distracted and will have difficulty leading anyone to Christ. Jus saying..
Your question was generalized. You said, “Isn’t being angry a sin?” I was answering your question, not trying to disect whose anger was righteous and whose was not. This is not my place. I am merely explaining that not all anger is sinful, and then followed it up with examples.
I think we can all justify our personal anger as “righteous” and “just,” but we’re not Jesus with the moneychangers and we certainly don’t know it all enough to judge others like He did. When we don’t know what the truth about something is but we claim we do, we’re bearing false witness against our neighbor.
What happened to humility, and a soft voice turns away wrath? What about meekness, kindness, and grace?
Sinfulness? Why is it that people can only see one point of view (skewed point of view) but don’t see what they support as being just as sinful? It’s a blind spot and it’s sad.
Well, God bless, you too, Lyn.
If so, then Jesus was a sinner because as I recall, he became angry when they were selling things in the temple and whipped people, knocked over things, and yelled. Also, God get’s angry (Jesus is God in the flesh) so then he would be guilty of sin as well. The type of anger depends on whether it is sin or not. To be angry for godly reasons due to sinfulness is called righteous anger. I hope I’ve helped.
Isn’t being angry a sin?
I did not find his post judgmental. He’s just stating his feeling and t houghts on his blog, just as you do, and the rest of us do… you love Obama as a President, and he doesn’t. He has his reasons, you have yours. Doesn’t mean he is judging anyone. He prefers Romney, but you say negative things at Romney. So, he could come to your blog and say the same thing becuase you are speaking negatively about the candidate he prefers, for example. God bless you Warrioress. Just being honest as an outsider looking in. What he is doing is no different than what you are doing, just in opposite.
(sigh) I disagree with this post. Fox News is fanning the flames against the president because they are terrified that the president is going to win re-election. They are attempting to create conspiracy theory where there is none. Normally, I love your postings, Freddy, but this one isn’t Christ-like and isn’t fair. It’s judgmental, hypocritical, and blind in that you only take note of what one party and one candidate is doing wrong in God’s eyes. Double standards are everywhere in this kind of perspective.
At any rate, it’s your right to believe as you desire to believe, but what you need to understand is that we all have an opinion; the things you are saying are viewed SUBJECTIVELY. I don’t agree with your take on this matter, and I’m sorry you’re becoming so angry about the state of the election and the state of things within the world. Perhaps more time in prayer and asking for peace of mind about God’s will, no matter how things turn out? God IS in charge. Everything will go according to His plan no matter who wins this election.
I think we can agree, however, that time is very short before Jesus returns. We all need to focus on bringing people to know Christ. People are watching us carefully and when we show anger, disrespect for our current president, and the inability to hold both parties accountable for the sin within them, we are slipping, imo.
President Obama is certainly no Messiah, and neither is Governor Romney. Both men are sinners and imperfect just as we are. Pray for them.
My feelings exactly. No accountability!
Amen here too! it is beyond me how so many people don’t see the truth about this man. It is time to stop the entertainment. This is serious stuff; something of which he has avoided. When a leader is going against God’s word, so will his staff and those who work for him. This is what we have had for the last 4 years. God wants Christians to speak out; I am convinced of this against this tyranny. God bless you!
Amen Freddy! I agree! I think many of us are pretty angry at the government, as well as the big O, for many things that are going on, including what you’re pointed out here. God bless you!
