Don't let ANYONE call or label you a RACIST-- because you simply tell the whole TRUTH about ILLEGAL ALIENS ruining our country and murdering U.S. AMERICAN CITIZENS !! I certainly realize that a thin majority of Americans elected obama and his jail bird crooks in the WH, but many are starting to 'see the light' now. Everyone makes mistakes like I did when I voted for Clinton before I found out that he was a crooked, sly, corrupt CHEAT, and a weasel! Live and learn-- but we must measure a person by his "fruits"/ past actions/ track record, and what the Bible says. I suspect that many were in my shoes as we were misled and lied to by some piped piper [slick Willy] with a smooth, silver tongue. But now that we are educated with better 'vision' we ought to make better, Bible based decisions. Who will help me disseminate these facts about the ILLEGAL ALIENS who break our laws and kill so many Americans EVERY DAY?? Who has got enough guts to re-print this post on their own Blogs and Journals?

Arizona Has It Right
By Chuck Baldwin
April 30, 2010
This column is archived at
Open borders advocates are livid that the State of Arizona has enacted a new
law authorizing State law enforcement personnel to arrest illegal aliens.
The Reverend Al Sharpton is threatening to march. The mayor of San Francisco
has declared Arizona off limits as a travel destination. The national
government of Mexico has issued travel warnings. President Barack Obama is
contemplating bringing a federal lawsuit against the State. Some are calling
for a boycott of the State.
So, why all the fuss?
The State of Arizona is rightly sick and tired of the federal government's
refusal to protect our nation (and the State of Arizona specifically) from
this foreign invasion that is commonly referred to as "illegal immigration."
In other words, the State of Arizona has said, "If the federal government
won't enforce the law, we will." I say, good for them! Now, the other border
states (Texas, New Mexico, and California) should do the same thing. Arizona
has it right, and the vast majority of the American people know it.
As an aside, if you are considering a visit to the American Southwest this
summer, why not support the brave legislators and governor of Arizona, and
make a point to spend your leisure dollars in Arizona? And when you do,
write a letter to the State capitol and tell them. Even more importantly, I
suggest that everyone contact their own State representatives, senators, and
governors, and urge them to enact a similar law--to the one Arizona
passed--in your State.
And since the national news media refuses to set the record straight on the
subject of illegal immigration (one could even say that the national news
media is deliberately covering up the record), let's do that right here and
First, let's talk about numbers. Even though the Census Bureau (CB)
estimates 11 million illegal aliens live in America, the real numbers are
much higher. Even CB officials admit that many illegal aliens purposely
avoid the census count. A more reliable count is provided by Bear Stearns.
It puts the number of illegal aliens at around 20 million. Former US
Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO), who was Chairman of the Congressional
Immigration Reform Caucus, puts the number at over 18 million.
According to Tennesseans for Responsible Immigration Policies (TNRIP), 6,000
immigrants arrive in America EVERY DAY. That equates to more than 2 million
EVERY YEAR. In many communities in the Southwest, including Los Angeles,
California, and Houston, Texas, Hispanics now comprise a majority of the
population. But numbers of illegal aliens are quickly beginning to mount in
cities throughout the United States.
For example, TNRIP documents the fact that the Hispanic population grew in
three Tennessee counties by more than 70% between 2000 and 2004. In one of
those counties (Robertson) it grew over 95% during that time. In seven
Tennessee counties, the Hispanic population grew by more than 40%. Now,
Tennessee can hardly be considered a "border state." The fact is, what is
happening in Tennessee is happening all over the United States. And lest you
think this is all harmless, think again.
According to TNRIP, the financial cost of this foreign invasion to U.S.
taxpayers is staggering! Here is a breakdown of the annual costs:
Education: $22.5 billion
Bi-lingual Education: $3.3 billion
AFDC: $2.4 billion
SSI: $2.9 billion
Social Security: $24.8 billion
Housing Assistance: $2.6 billion
Criminal Justice: $2.6 billion
Jobs Lost by Americans: $10.8 billion
Other Programs: $51.4 billion
Food Stamps: $7 billion
Health Care: $1.4 billion
The first study of the net cost of illegal immigration to American taxpayers
was conducted in 1997 by Dr. Donald Huddle, Professor Emeritus of Economics
at Rice University. This study concluded that from 1970 to 1997, illegal
immigration had cost taxpayers over $69 billion. Obviously, the financial
numbers have exploded since then.
Furthermore, during 1996 alone, more than 2.3 million American workers were
displaced by (mostly) illegal aliens. Harvard Professor George Borjas
estimates that today American workers lose $133 billion per year in wage
depression and job loss.
Back in 2007 it was reported, "LA County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich
announced that a new report shows illegal aliens and their families
collected over $35 million in welfare and food stamp allocations in July.
"In the report, illegals are said to have collected nearly $20 million in
welfare assistance for July 2007 and an additional $15 million in monthly
food stamp allocations for an estimated annual cost of $440 million.
"'Illegal immigration continues to have a devastating impact on Los Angeles
County taxpayers,' said Antonovich. 'In addition to $220 million for public
safety and $400 million for healthcare, the $440 million in welfare
allocations bring the total cost to County taxpayers that exceeds $1 billion
a year--this does not include the skyrocketing cost of education.'"
Consider, too, this recent report by Heritage Foundation's Robert Rector.
According to Byron York at National Review, "Rector found that in 2004, the
most recent year for which figures are available, low-skill households
received an average of $32,138 per household--the great majority in the form
of means-tested aid and direct benefits. (Rector excluded from that figure
the cost of public goods and interest; with those included, he says, each
low-skill household receives an average of $43,084.) Against that, Rector
found that low-skill households paid an average of $9,689 in taxes. (The
biggest chunk of that was the Social Security tax--$2,509--followed by state
and local taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes, and federal income
taxes, but Rector counted everything, including highway levies and lottery
purchases.) In the final calculation, he found, the average low-skill
household received $22,449 more in benefits than it paid in taxes--the
$32,138 in benefits, excluding public goods, minus the $9,689 in taxes.
"Taking that $22,449, and multiplying it by the 17.7 million low-skill
households, Rector found that the total deficit for such households was $397
billion in 2004. 'Over the next ten years the total cost of low-skill
households to the taxpayer (immediate benefits minus taxes paid) is likely
to be at least $3.9 trillion,' Rector writes. 'This number would go up
significantly if changes in immigration policy lead to substantial increases
in the number of low-skill immigrants entering the country and receiving
See York's column at:
It has been noted that 75% of people on LA's most-wanted list are illegal
aliens. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are here
illegally, and roughly 30% of inmates in the federal prisons are illegal
In addition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reports half of all
gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegals from south of the
border. According to Tancredo, gang membership by illegal aliens in many
states is 50%, and in Phoenix, Arizona, illegal aliens constitute 34% of
child-molestation and 40% of auto theft cases.
Furthermore, illegal aliens murder (on average) 12 Americans EVERY DAY,
according to Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa). Plus, illegals that drive
drunk kill another 13 Americans EVERY DAY. That means illegal aliens kill
more Americans EVERY YEAR than have been killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan
wars in total.
See the report at:
Of course, Arizonans are still reeling from the recent high profile murder
of a fellow citizen on his own property by an illegal.
Law enforcement agencies are very much cognizant of a surge in Latin
American "ultra-violent" gangs that have sprung up in more than 40 US
states. According to the FBI, one gang called MS-13 has been identified in
42 states. Another group called the 18th Street Gang is in 37 states.
According to FBI MS-13 National Gang Task Force director Brian Truchon,
"When the gang migrates throughout the U.S., there is always a road back to
L.A. From L.A., there is always a road back to Central America."
Retired lawman Jim Kouri wrote, "According to Lt. Steve Rogers, a decorated
cop and award-winning writer, there are tens of thousands of murderers,
rapists, child predators, robbers and drug dealers who are illegally in the
United States. One study shows over 200,000 criminal aliens are preying on
What the Arizona law does is authorize its law enforcement personnel to
ENFORCE THE LAW. No one in Arizona is talking about racial profiling or
violating citizens' constitutional rights. In fact, the new Arizona law
actually mirrors already established federal law. But the federal government
has hamstrung State and local police agencies in their attempts to arrest
illegals for decades. Now, Arizona policemen can arrest illegals for being
in the State of Arizona illegally, and have them deported: something they
should have been doing (and have every right to do) all along. No wonder the
vast majority of the American people (not to mention the citizens of
Arizona) supports the Arizona law.
But there is a greater issue here: the right of the State of Arizona to
protect, defend, and govern itself. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the State
sovereignty movement is growing like a wildfire. Whether it is Arizona,
Montana, Idaho, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia, Texas, Florida, Alaska, or a
couple dozen other states, legislators are beginning to awaken to the
constitutional and moral responsibility of each State to govern itself. And
when the central government in Washington, D.C., abridges or impedes that
responsibility, it is the right and duty of states to resist.
This is why I tell people everywhere I speak, What is going on in [Your
State] is infinitely more important than anything that goes on in
Washington, D.C. Without the approbation of the State, DC's actions and
attitudes are irrelevant. This is why we need county sheriffs, State
legislators, State judges, State attorneys general, and governors who--along
with their State's citizenry--understand the Constitution and are willing to
courageously hold the line for freedom and constitutional government in
their respective states. And by passing this anti-illegal alien bill, the
State of Arizona did just that--the chagrin and consternation of open
borders advocates notwithstanding.

It's good to have friends like my buddy, Bob, from the land of Oz [Australia] who is also my brother in Arms/ Combat- Vietnam Vet. There is only one other bond that is stronger than this --- a brother in Christ -- but I am sure that Bob is a Christian too. You don't find many atheists in fox holes in Combat... The kind of fighting/ battle I remember didn't have 'fox holes' because my people flew bare chested [well, in uniform] wearing a plastic flight helmet that was NOT bullet proof, in helicopters/ Aviation, unless we wanted the cumbersome 'Flack Jacket' or 'chicken vest' sort of body armor, and most of us didn't wear one-- except the pilots.
I don't know why I always get started on this subject [of my past-- so many years ago-- but it seems like yesterday]. And if I get 'trapped' in this combat mode -- I know how to "pray myself out of it"...lol. We will all struggle with these sort of things while on earth, but the Father sent us the Holy Spirit to help us deal with it all, and we have to make SOME effort to resist certain things.
I don't want people to think that I am so myopic and limited that I can't think or do anything else except talk about the Bible, God, or the old Army days -- but I do know my priorities. Pretty soon we hope that some friends help us till and plant the garden in the back yard. I also hope to do more woodcarving and carpentry this Summer, clean up the garage, basement, upstairs, etc. I also know that the month of May is going to be a tough month because this is when every conceivable bill in the world will hit my bank account...Ha! I just heard that the price of gasoline and food will really be going up thru the ceiling soon, especially meat! Good for me-- I love veggies, and I just bought 5 pounds of carrots. I heard a person can live on carrots and nuts and still be healthy!
My wife and I have been feeling tired with back pain lately so we just sleep later. Nothing really opens until 10 AM anyway. I wish I could join the health club again in Kenosha if I could rely on the 'politically correct', chicken staff/ management who refuse to keep the illegal aliens from harassing old, disabled Veterans like me. Now... I could hurt or kill them, but then the way the Progressive/ Liberal courts are in Wisconsin-- they would most likely put ME in prison forever even though I would be defending myself. There is low crime in the county where we live, but we have to be careful when we go to the big cities. Some lazy people who won't work are the real source of trouble and violence, looking for a free lunch and housing, etc, which include many illegal aliens who are hurting us economically. And I support the good people in ARIZONA for putting that proper, just law into action! Build the fence-- because the Feds sure won't lift a finger! That includes Mr. Bush and Pres. Obama, IMHO. Don't forget the Progressive, Liberal Congress. And please let me tell you that it's NOT about racism-- it's about power, control, and the Dims know that the Blacks and Spanish have traditionally voted for Liberal Dims, and that too is why they are moving fast for Puerto Rico!! More Spanish voters-- the more the Dims can stay in power for the next 100 years -- of so they figure!
I hope that you all realize that even right now there is NO WAY America can get out from under the heavy burden of DEBT that we have already laid upon our grand children! What a stinking shame that we have sold our kids' birthright of freedom and liberty for mere stupidity and selfishness --to heathen nations who don't know the God of the Bible! Ahhh, but Christians know about the "God factor" and the grand promises of the Bible. Think RAPTURE, and take action now to know the Lord and study His Word. See: biblefortoday.org
And, hey! Do you really want to know the truth about Noah's Ark? Just check out Luke 3:36, where Jesus traces His linage back to Noah-- and also back to "Adam,which was the son of God." If you dispute the story of Noah -- you also call Jesus a liar. I would never say something like THAT! That would earn me a one way ticket to hell. Do you think you had things tough on earth??? Ha!

I thought this, "Timing of the Rapture" short article, lent some good insight and definition to the content of my recent Blog posts -- and I think we ought to be prepared to quench the fiery missiles of erring 'Christian' wanna- bees who attack the biblical truisms of ours. Truth be told, I would follow the commands of the Bible even if God WILLED that we had to endure the Great Tribulation! In fact that was what I USED TO BELIEVE when trapped in the JW-Cult-- 'church of the poisoned mind!' And to think that they teach that "hell" is a state of unconscious 'nothing-ness' --of 'non-existence.' On the other hand, IF they were [are] wrong about hell-- and the biblical HELL was indeed a terrible place of everlasting torment and deprivation-- just think of all the poor, messed up, uninformed people/ followers who would be trapped in HELL forever because the JW-cult steered them wrong and lied to them!! What a terrible price to pay for getting involved in that Cult! That's closely akin to the Catholic church telling their people that eating meat on Friday would send THEM to hell! And also-- what about their law that priests have to remain celibate [never to marry a lady] -- that is also UN--scriptural?
Posted: 28 Apr 2010 12:08 PM PDTBy Mike GendronProclaiming the Gospel MinistriesCatholics who believe a purifying fire will purge away their sins are deluded victims of a fatal fabrication. The invention of a place for purification of sins called Purgatory is one of the most seductive attractions of the Roman Catholic religion. Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church described this deceptive hoax brilliantly. He said: "
JUST read 1st Timothy, 4th chapter, verses 1 thru 6.... for proof that their laws are SCRIPTURAL! Don't you figure that IF the priest had their own wives they would be less likely to abuse young boys?? Sorry... I had to say that because it's true and the church cannot hide it anymore-- and many have been hurt and traumatized because of un-scriptural church laws. The Bible promises that ALL sins will be made transparent in the Last Days so all can see. Honestly, are we to think that we can hide from God's eyes and wrath?? But why not read the whole short chapter to get the entire jist, please? Do we really want to walk thru life in ignorance? Do you really think that God will have mercy on you because you CHOSE TO REMAIN IGNORANT? What we 'don't know CAN and WILL kill us-- and send us to hell.... and so "Willful Ignorance" IS certainly Dangerous and Deadly. Be forewarned, Repent and get SAVED.
Friends, Did you know that it is my DUTY to type these words of warning-- as a true biblical Christian? The book of Ezekiel, but also the NT [New Testament] clearly show us that fact.
I have to end this post quickly, but as I went to the store a hour ago, I noticed that some folks are already starting to "stock up" on food stuffs, as if they expected some sort of calamity coming soon.... And we know that there are many other Christian bloggers who are quietly recommending that we 'buy a little extra' when we shop... so please consider this info 'a word to the wise.' I would say: get some glass gallon jugs and fill them with distilled water, buy boxes of macaroni and cheese, tuna, canned goods, batteries, rice/ beans, etc, etc., study how to use herbs as medicine, etc. I hope that I don't sound insane or extreme, but up in Wisconsin, we have some severe tornadoes and storms, with some power outages.
Take care, folks.

Combine the water, rice, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a saucepan and cook until the rice is tender and water is absorbed. Transfer the steamed rice to a baking sheet to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until cold. Heat a large wok over medium-high heat until the first wisp of white smoke comes off of the wok. Add 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil to the wok and tilt the wok to coat. Add the eggs and quickly stir until just cooked, about 30 seconds. Remove the eggs from the wok and set aside on a plate.

Sunny Day-- but cool and windy. We will take it and like it any old day. Better than the high winds down South and West, and may the Lord protect our brothers and sisters in the Faith where the tornadoes hit.
Has any one of my dear friends and readers remembered how I've been howling about this up coming War in the Middle East in past posts?? Well, it seems like the 'war drums' are getting louder-- even with the baloney WH "thoughts of peace with Israel making a gesture of goodwill" ...Ha! Sounds like Mr. Chamberlain coming home to England from Germany in the 1940's, waving that piece of paper in the air-- reassuring the Brits that Mr. Hitler was a man of honor and they promised PEACE and Security ... lol. What a joke!
And we all know who's side obama is on-- the oil people- Arabs-- the enemies of Israel; And after all, obama is Muslim.
The article tickled me when the fine author/ writer said that people ought to be prepared with food, water and cash.... yea, right! Most Americans, IMHO, are deep in debt, out of work, and trusting in a corrupt Gov't that continues to steal their money through every conceivable means, and every type of tax, telling all sorts of lies.
My wife and I are certainly not rich or comfortable either and we have bills to pay every single month. But we do love the Lord and seek to do His work of sharing the Gospel with all we meet, etc. We try to help the local church as well as we can, and some Christian missions that help worse off Christians who are being being tortured and killed for their Faith. Information says that there are more REAL, biblical Christians in China [underground] than both Europe and the USA !! That doesn't make the "Home of the Brave and Land of the Free" look so good, does it? And that is another 'Sign' of the 'Times.' See: 2nd Timothy 3rd Chapter. Much of the so-called 'Christian' churches in the USA are in Spiritual disrepair-- and watering down the Gospel of Jesus Christ, even using 'watered down bible translations' that challenge the very Deity of Christ, the "Virgin birth", etc!!
BTW, I am giving away many of my older bibles, like the NIV's, NASB's, etc. People can still learn from them.
I also realize that some 'religious organizations' and people, on-line, "churches and disciplines" will mock me again for sharing this kind of information, calling me crazy, eccentric, misled, etc. -- but that 'comes with the territory' too. I remember that I 'invested in toilet paper', etc., for Y2K, but then we had enough paper for a year and a half...lol. Some folks laughed at me then too, but I knew I could use those items... lol. I had some huge cans of food, beans and rice, flour, most of which I donated to Victory Baptist church, in Kenosha, WI., to the dear Pastor Earl B. Wise that I still consider a close friend, and they used it the very same day to feed the children at Victory Christian school. It gave me a good feeling anyway, and I don't believe I "lost too much money." I would rather err on the side of SAFETY-- and benefit others that have less.
And again I must say that we are also in the time of the Rapture, [and that MAY come before or after the Middle East war...] and we ought to get with the Lord's program and be prepared. We expect the entire city of Damascus to "disappear"/ be leveled, in this soon coming battle. I pity the folks who think that they can jump onto the 'Ark' at the last minute and repent.... Ha! And ALL OF A SUDDEN -- THEY WILL HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD TO LISTEN TO THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE -- instead of being so busy all the time grabbing the money and material things they don't really need! And they will understand and realize their past folly/ mistake or not reading the BOOK and drawing close to the Lord. Does the Lord even want such people??
This is NOT the time that we ought to be engrossed in serious sin, immorality, illegal activities, either, over spending in things we really don't need, and growing deeper in debt-- but many figure that obama does it-- so why shouldn't they. That's my opinion, anyway. And I don't think that the REAL Christian pastors and preachers have air conditioned dog houses, or drive Hummers. I worry about the so-called 'Mega-Churches' and they way they lust for gold and creature worship/ fame.
You can't say that you didn't have enough warnings about this subject, dear friends!
I feel as if I have talked until I am BLUE in the face, good readers, with many other bloggers and preachers doing the same. If you agree, or disagree, please comment on this Journal, or if you want privacy, via my email address:
email@example.com ..... this is not the time to be timid or silent, but people must take decisive action now -- take a stand for Christ, confess you sins and make Him your personal Lord and Savior!
As I was watching the news this evening on TV about Israel agreeing with the WH about not building more apartments/ homes on the East side of Jerusalem-- I thought to myself-- "Yeah, right!" We should all know very well that things can change in a heart beat!! Katrina stuck with a vengeance but the people still have SOME warning. Many chose to stay home and 'tough it out'... and suffer. I regret that Prez Bush was too slow to aid those people, but we all know that there is enough blame to go around. I am just using the Katrina Hurricane disaster as an EXAMPLE of how sudden things can happen. Woe to the persons who disregard God's divine warnings. The article below says that the 'war could start TOMORROW!' Will you be ready? Like Glenn Beck on Fox News says: 'When you go to the store-- buy an EXTRA box of Mac 'n Cheese-- stock up!'
We in America have never seen REAL hardship-- yet! The Bible teaches us how to have wisdom and understanding-- and that's something the Gov't has not seen for at least 100 years.... sorry. For the most part has made their choice to abort as many children [with our tax dollars], promote Sodomy [the Gay agenda] and immorality [with the "marriage tax"], and giving the Muslims a free pass to do what ever they want], take care/ feed the lazy people who WON'T work and the illegal aliens, and 'kick God out' of every State and Federal institution, school, court house, and public square in the USA -- but promote and sanction Muslims with no problem. Why in the world should God have mercy on the USA? I believe in fighting for Rights legally, voting.. but will these things count when the Lord comes? Would not getting right with the Lord and studying the Bible do more for our Salvation in the coming RAPTURE than being glued to the TV, day and night??? Ponder on this, please.
Take care -- Take Heed.
Heaven is my Home.

Obama's Eligibility: Here's Your Sign!
By Timothy Baldwin
This article is exactly what I have been referring to in a few past issues of my blog! Don't worry-- it's not that difficult to understand... lol. This is what I was 'betting' on [plus other articles-- and the Bible, of course] as far as real biblical Christians 'knowing' that God will protect Israel-- even though the illegally elected, arrogant, bum in the WH has cut off support and shunned/ mistreated God's chosen people lately, shamelessly, the Israelites. Obama's crude remarks and behavior to our traditional allies-- Israel, will also bring God's DISFAVOR upon America, as there is a curse attached to nations/ people who try to hurt Israel. Only God can hurt or permit hurt to Israel when she disobeys God's commands/ instructions!! We are already seeing some of God's displeasure/ curses on our "god of money" being assaulted and shamed. After all, we are a very spoiled, materialistic country -- just like ancient Rome was before her crash and burn scene. Yes, history always repeats itself-- but few politicians and most Americans who voted the Prez into office-- realize this point.
Being a history buff and serious student of the Bible-- things come alive in panoramic color for me, when I see these prophecies being fulfilled right in front of my eyes! And you better believe these combined happenings have a direct bearing on how I conduct my current affairs at home. From purchases to investments to daily living, and my whole thought process, etc. Like I always say, 'If you only knew that your ship was sinking-- you might have chosen to fly that day.' As I told my dear son, Andy, the USA might see a small spurt of progress in the Springtime-- but Christians KNOW that the economy will get MUCH worse this next year-- just for starters!! Personally, I would really study the Stock Market before I leaped into a high risk investment scheme, or most ANY stocks and bonds adventure. But this is only my personal opinion-- and I used to be Security Licensed. I invest in 'other ways' that I feel will be fruitful... including investing in Heaven! Doctors and Attorneys have asked for my investments advice-- when I was still licensed. I explain my thinking to a few very close friends-- just my opinions and strategy.
Right now, I have seen fit to invest in the 'new' DEFINED KJV bibles, that I consider a very fine tool to help people understand the Bible better, and perhaps I have 'over-extended' myself, as all my main heavy Springtime bills hit me in May. Hey! I am NOT the Gov't where they can just PRINT more money if they overspend our taxes...Ha! MY check book has to be balanced every day!
Remember: "Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it." That comes from the book: Murphy's Law.
Sharon made it to church today and we had a good time. The friends at church are precious to us and we feel comfortable there. I like to give candy out of my suit pocket to the friends there and watch them smile.
When many Christians and unbelievers finally find out that they have wasted precious time, effort, and treasure trying to use politics to "fix" our country's problems--- they will feel like fools because they could have been more busy doing the Lord's work, and getting s closer to Him in these 'Last Days.' And IF the article is correct-- even as it is provable and Bible based, right now we DON'T HAVE A LOT OF TIME ON OUR SIDE! I will NEVER reprove or shame my friends and readers-- because I just figured all this out about a year or two ago. I feel that the Bible scriptures listed below backs up my personal opinions and that is why I feel so strong about my convictions-- and so I press forward in my ministry and mission.

Obama's Eligibility: Here's Your Sign!
By Timothy Baldwin
I have to share a recent letter from a new friend who is helping me in a large way...PTL!
I figure that a long life spent serving the Lord has rendered him and his fine wife, somewhat disabled and it may be harder for him to write / type... But he gets the main facts out correctly and has a wealth of experience and knowledge that he freely shares-- as most Christians do. I might add that the "new tool" that I praise so much lately certainly HELPS US UNDERSTAND THE MOST ACCURATE VERSION OF GOD'S HOLY WORD--- the DEFINED KJV Bible. By the way, Sharon witnessed to 3 new hospital staff in her latest tour of duty at Kenosha, WI hospital, down by Lake Michigan, and even one of her specialists, Dr. Ziehen, was very excited seeing her copy of the DEFINED KJV, saying that he never understood many of the 'OLD ENGLISH' uncommon terms/ words before! Wow! Isn't it remarkable how the Lord uses so-called 'common people'--Christians to spread/ share/ teach His Word ?! And to think that humble old Tom had a small part in teaching the Bible to Sharon Schuckman after we first met about 6 years ago.....dear wife of mine. Sharon wields the Bible like a professional swordsman! I would have to admit that Sharon has come to be a great blessing and reward for me-- to the glory of God! PTL. All my years of hard work in teaching and sharing with my wife and others I consider a fine reward-- more precious than gold or silver. Thank you, great Father and Son.
If I can beg, borrow or steal the funds-- I will order more: biblefortoday.org ... for the 4th time, and what a fine 'investment.' I share them with other Christian for the exact price that I pay. I usually takes about 7 days to get the package, and some of the items are OUT OF STOCK already!!
Sharon is home again as of a half hour ago, and life is back to normal... PTL. But I am smart enough to know that we will still be playing "yo-yo", going back and forth to the hospital in the future, and she will most likely be back in the hospital within a month or so-- sorry to sound so negative -- but that's the 'nature of the beast' in Sharon's struggle in life, working with a bad 'pump', COPD, Sarcoidosis, Diabetes, and lung filled with fluid, ETC. But I love my wife, as she loves me, and she would do as much for me, and still does help me in many ways. She makes the best breaded pork chops East of the Mississippi ! That is one reason that I keep saying: HEAVEN IS MY HOME. It's so good to have a strong hope based on something and "SOMEBODY" with a proven track record, WHO has never lied and never will--God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ.
I love to listen [and my wife does too] to the local Milwaukee Christian radio station, that can also be acquired via the InterNet-- WVCY- 107.7 FM. And they have some EZ listening great Christian music at night until dawn that soothes the soul and gives peace of mind, and that makes Sharon fall to sleep more easily. But I like their show called: 'Un-Shackled' , from Chicago --Pacific Garden Mission, that relates true stories of how so many men and women changed from crime and sin-- to Salvation in Christ and under went huge obstacles of drug addiction, alcohol, crime,etc. and ignorance to embrace the life of TRUE Christianity. They made a person understand that most of us had much easier lives that pale in proportion compared to many others with giant challenges and more severe problems... so we can ALL over come our demons!
I like to pass on the good treasures that I have found thru the years. There were certainly giants [God fearing men] used by God to help me progress through hard problematic times of my life, and REAL Christians don't hoard the tools that helped them-- but we all share what we have. That is my endeavor using this humble blog.
You know, friends, there are MANY unbelievers that are "better" people than I am, with more gifts, brains, social graces, more kindness and qualities than I will ever have on earth---will NOT be going to Heaven! Many so-called "good" people will GO TO HELL! WHY? Because God's Holy Word- the Bible says that ALL must accept the Son, Jesus Christ as their personal LORD and SAVIOR! This is just not my human opinion-- it's the Gospel Truth of the Bible, and from Jesus own lips. If you need proof -- just contact me, or I will post exactly what the Bible says about this timely subject. So when my Mom chides me [and I love her dearly] and tries to pull me down [like a bucket of crabs -- the old cliche] pointing to my past mistakes and sins... I guess misery loves company ... I have to do what I know is right. She just can't realize that sincere confession to the Lord and accepting Him as our personal Lord and Savior is the only ticket to everlasting life in heaven/ Salvation-- and our sins are truly forgiven! But then, she refuses to read the Bible [as do 98% of all my extended relation] or listen to biblical reason, despite my teaching qualities/ credentials-- but I am just a humble servant of God. See Matthew 10, concerning the challenge and strife true Christians will have within their own families. And, yes, we do have to take a stand and make a choice to either stick with our mislead, unbelieving family/ relatives, and our OLD UN-SCRIPTURAL PAST false RELIGION-- and the Bible and God!! I stress the Bible so much because it is the ONLY reliable, proven SOURCE of Truth and Justice from God... and I personally choose the King James 1611 version, because it has not left anything out, lied about things, perverted the Word, IMHO. But I am NOT suggesting that we throw all the 'modern bibles away! Keep them to show others and COMPARE. See: biblefortoday.org
It's the BEST tool that I've found to help me understand the most accurate Bible in the world, in some 40 years, and I have a full library at home that's impressive and exhaustive, including Wycliffe Commentary, etc.
Christianity is NOT the Faith for wimps-- and God cannot stand someone sitting on the fence, being LUKE WARM!! People may say that I 'shopped around' and tried out many churches and mindsets-- but I had to be sure, because there is no 2nd chance when it comes to being Saved and missing the 'last jet' [Rapture] out of Satan's world of pain and destruction. Don't be Left Behind! BTW, the 'Left Behind' series, movies are strictly of fiction genre, but based on what the Tribulation [scripturaly] COULD be like. Just like the fine book, SAFELY HOME, by Randy Alcorn, which HAS TO BE FICTION, to protect the zealous Christian brothers underground in China, who risk life and limb if they are even caught with the Bible!! But the book surely is scriptural and accurate of what Heaven COULD/ SHOULD be like... And if it [the Left Behind series movies] scares you a little and wakes you up-- I feel that it's a good thing. Fear if the Lord, in a positive way, is a good thing. We FEAR to make God unhappy or disappointed as His servants, because we LOVE Him. But He loved us FIRST!
So if your Faith [or 'religion'] doesn't stand up to the true Christianity of the BIBLE-- better get with the program now. If there are no bible teaching churches in your neighborhood/ area-- you might gather with a few biblical Christians near by or check the Net for such persons in your locale and read/ study the Bible together once a week and have coffee and cake afterward, or a glass of water with a toothpick in it [that's called a "Pine Float"! Above all-- READ THE BOOK! One more important point -- if your wayward heart is not completely set/ prepared to accept Jesus and the Bible--PRAY, BEG God to GIVE YOU A NEW HEART, wisdom, understanding, LOVE to Him !! I did just that.
Glad to have Sharon home again!
PS: a letter from a friend:

Exhilarating Times, you might say / ask ? Sometimes with the human eye and our rudimentary errant knowledge we just wonder at some of the Bible prophecy written thousands of years ago, even in Isaiah's time. Now in the 'Last Days' of this so-called 'Church Age' with modern ways to sweep/ view deeper into the earth, we find that Israel is sitting on big wealth/ treasure of natural gas and oil deposits! And you all thought it was just a hot desert... lol. This can work for good or evil. Many nations could benefit from this find-- but others could be jealous and worried that their corner of the market [for which they over charge and bleed their customers/ neighbors] could be disrupted and challenged. What GREED Russia has-- as you will find out! Shame.... Pity... Those of us biblical Christians -- Blogosphere [sic], share our stuff, facts and info, because it's not for us to hog the lime light or hoard important info, but to praise the Lord and share the Gospel-- and we are all working for the same end-- to share the Gospel and Salvation of Christ, thru the Bible. Interesting short article below.
I had a nice quiet time/ visit spent with Sharon today as I delivered her mail, news, etc., to the hospital, and she told me that MAYBE the docs will let her go home again MAYBE --tomorrow, and with the correct medications this time. Man, I tell you that even the good doctors have to jump through hoops to take care of their OWN spouses-- in dealing with Medicare-- and Gov't baloney/ red tape and stupidity!! So they readily understood my wife's current challenge with GOV'T bureaucracy/ Medicare, etc. But I am not going to bitch and complain today... I just want you all to know that worse times and Gov't foolishness are coming down the pike, dear friends, with obama-care, etc. Please don't get too upset, because we may all be Raptured before the mean times even get here in a few years. That is because the Lord is moving more quickly, I believe, and that signals that the times are also growing worse, as predicted. He has His time table too, you know.
Remember: Prepare for the worst [just like a Hurricane, Tornado, or the electrical grid going down] --- but pray for the best, or at least survival --IF IT'S GOD'S WILL!
Everything SHOULD hinge on that last note--God's Will. Remember the Lord's Prayer at Matthew 6:9?? "Let YOUR Will be done." Not obama's will.... lol. And what you see happening today in the USA and world is just the tip of the iceberg pushing toward a ONE WORLD GOV'T. Who can tell me what God's Will actually is? Just turn to 1st Timothy, chapter 2, verses 3 and 4, [hold up 4 fingers] for your answer. Don't be lazy.
I asked a dear friend/ brother from church named Joe B., who dropped by my humble hovel this morning, WHY is it that small, young JW kids can recite the Bible like pro's, all the books of the bible,etc, even as they are in false religion, but kids in our church cannot?? Good point, huh? That answer is: time, effort and parental sacrifice! I taught my 3 kids all that stuff from young on, and as of 12 years ago, I have been valiantly trying to get them OUT OF THAT TERRIBLE CULT! For the most part, I have succeeded, but they have not replaced that 'void' with the REAL biblical truth! So sorry. But at least I have tried to show them the proper example and share the Gospel with them ever since then. I guess they felt that ALL religions must be false and corrupt, and moved on. I love them dearly, but I have NOT the power to change their hearts and minds. Still I pray for them and care for them.
Our dog is very well trained and obedient when he is with us alone, but when company comes over he is a wild clown who seeks all the attention... just like a little kid..Ha! I love well trained, mild mannered Rottweilers! If 'Deuce' the Rotty were a doctor-- he would be a brain surgeon! What would I do without him cheering me up when I'm blue ... and waking me up in the middle of the night to go outside to do his 'business ?' But you know that you can train PIGS to 'dump' in a specified part of the yard, or barn. Now go figure, if God made many animals with such great brains and capabilities, Swans that live to age 80, Turtles that live to age 150, WHY does man only live to about age 70 -90 years old, for the most part?? The real truth is: Man WAS MADE TO LIVE FOREVER! Some experts claim that we only use about 2%--5% of our brains by the time we die; What is the reason? It was ALWAYS God's original intention for us to live FOREVER! If this has piqued your interest and makes any sense to you, invest in the most accurate copy of the Bible, in my opinion, ---the DEFINED KJV Bible, and READ THE BOOK! You can got a large print, hard covered, easy to read copy of the a fore mentioned bible [and I am NOT selling them] from: biblefortoday.org -- for about $20 plus S+H. I bought several-- great investment!
So, I'll be waiting for my wife's phone call tomorrow so I can take her home....AGAIN. Your comments are always appreciated. I am friendly and open minded.
Heaven is my Home... but ONLY because of Jesus' blood sacrifice.
Posted: 23 Apr 2010 03:08 PM PDTBy Hal Lindsey. The Hal Lindsey Report. On this week's edition of "The Hal Lindsey Report": US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates sent a confidential 3-page memo to President Obama. In it, he complained that the Administration had no long-term policy for dealing with Iran. I applaud Gates for speaking up to the President about this dangerous failure. However, I'm a bit perplexed that it took someone

I kind of wish that more people agreed with me concerning the real truth about both political parties being corrupt and greedy in the USA, and the fact that the entire world is in an economic 'melt-down' mode right now. I tried to tell my own son that fact tonight, but he is an unbeliever and too young to make the right choice... what a shame and pity! I told him that this hell bent world economy WILL NOT BE GETTING BETTER in the future. Maybe a small, short Springtime seasonal spurt-- but thing will get progressively worse and fail, says the BIBLE. Does ANYONE want to bet $$$ ?? I am not some 'conspiracy theory' nut job, but most educated History and Bible students and professionals KNOW that this is going on, and pretty soon the Gov't and "News Media" won't be able to conceal it any longer-- and by that time, most people will drown in debt and struggle to stay afloat! But biblical Christians need NOT fear the future-- because we have the Rapture and Salvation!
You have to understand that people like obama and other corrupt leaders and privileged elites have some kind of plan for their OWN survival. No one could be this suicidal and stupid enough to destroy their OWN nest/ country/ world, without some sort of escape, back door, built into the system. Just like there can never be a "pure Socialism" --as every greedy dog at the top will have more power and wealth, while the majority of the underlings slave and beg for table scraps.
But what they don't understand is the "GOD FACTOR." God laughs at humans' puny plans of power, wealth, and boasting, and His own time table is set in motion...as all biblical Christians well know. The wicked, godless, unbelieving bums think that they are hiding from God, but in reality, they stick out like a fire in the night-- and God sees all. Others also claim that they don't attend a Christian church near them because someone hurt their feelings or there are so many hypocrites in churches. Unless there is a REAL bad problem in that church because they are not teaching/ preaching the pure truth of the Bible-- people ought to settle their differences and grow/ mature spiritually by the Grace of God, and the Holy Spirit, IMHO. How can they claim to love God when they hate their neighbor/ fellow Christian brother or sister??
When the Lord started his first congregation-- He didn't have any perfect people to work with, so He did the next best thing... He chose IM-perfect people! ...Ha! Hey... I have had a few problems and disagreements over the years, but they are resolved now and all is well-- and I am happy/ content. I have to admit that I was young and immature years ago too... but God wanted me as His servant and believer, and it's the finest, BEST thing that ever happened to me. I cringe when people say that some human, machine, house, car, or pet is their "most precious thing in the world..." God should always come first. He alone has the power to grant life eternal in one of 2 places-- and YOU [we] are here for eternity weather you believe it, like it -- or not! Are you going to 'get into the Ark' of Salvation, or be a stupid rebel [Satan's name = Resister/ Rebel] like the vast majority of humankind?? It doesn't matter if you are rich/ poor, sick/ healthy, skinny or fat, all races get the same extension/ chance of Salvation in the Lord's eyes. How long with YOU [we] limp around making some dog dung excuses for NOT taking/ making the right move NOW??
Well, I need to see Sharon in the morning and bring her a a few things as she will stay in the hospital ... again, for a few more days. But half the time, I don't really think the 'doctors' know what they will do from day to day... lol. Got to fill my gas tank again and shop a little, and then meet a buddy from church who might till my Victory garden, if the weather is good.
I am happy and thankful for the new people who just joined my blog/ became followers. The more--the merrier, and I just like to email and visit with people, as it seems like I live 'single' half the time, with poor Sharon sick all the time.
