The seeds we sow: When the government lies
In the weeks leading up to the US attack on Libya, Reuters and the New York Times report that the White House authorized the CIA to provide arms, and locate ammunition dumps and weapons arsenals to the rebels. While CIA operatives are not considered ground troops, ground troops are on the way to Libya. This, despite consistent reports that the rebels were joined by al Qaeda operatives and Libyan mercenaries who fought against US soldiers in Iraq. Later the CIA was calling in coordinates for the US air strikes against the Libyan government's forces advancing on the rebels. Yet the president promised in his Libya speech he was "going after al Qaeda wherever they seek a foothold."
The White House told the American people, and the world for that matter, that it was assisting the Egyptian people in overthrowing the Mubarek government in the name of democracy. The president said that the people of Egypt wanted freedom and that was why they were rebelling. Yet democracy was only the platform the terrorist sponsoring Muslim Brotherhood used to take power. Now, in just a few days, Egypt has turned from a nation at peace with Israel to one that is strengthening ties with terrorists who seek Israel's and America's destruction. Egypt's new Foreign Minister Nabil Al-Arabi says his country "will turn over a new leaf" and seek diplomatic ties with Iran and talks with Hezbollah.
In recent weeks, the Congressional Budge Office reports that the White House public projections of the budget deficit were understated by $2.3 trillion--or a mere $80,000 per American household. AP reported, "The estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says that if Obama's February budget submission is enacted into law it would produce deficits totaling $9.5 trillion over 10 years - an average of almost $1 trillion a year." Last November the president said, "American taxpayers are now positioned to recover more than my administration invested in GM." A March 16 Congressional Oversight report, says however, that $25 billion of the deal will never be paid back to taxpayers.
There are countless other examples of bold face lies by this Administration from health care to law enforcement to employment figures and on and on. This is a direct result of the American populace buying in to the concept of separation of church and state. The Founding Fathers followed the guidelines provided Moses in setting up this Constitutional Republic. Exodus 18:21 says, "Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness and place such over them (the people)..." We have abandoned the principles of fearing God, of truth and hating covetousness in choosing our leaders. Therefore we get no wisdom, lies, and financial malfeasance.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
