2 Headlines Continued Obama Chooses American Decline American Decline: foreign minister justifies vast territorial claims that violate maritime law by citing tradi- tional maps that grant China dominion over the East and South China Seas. WHICH MAKES this align- ment of the world’s two leading anti-Western powers all the more significant. It marks a major alteration in the global balance of power. Putin to Shanghai reprises Nixon to China. To be sure, it’s not the surprise that Henry Kissinger pulled off in secret. But it is the cap- stone of a gradual — now accelerated — Russia-China rapprochement that undoes the Kissinger-Nixon achieve- ment. THEIR 1972 strategic coup fundamentally turned the geopolitical tables on Moscow. Putin has now turned the same tables on us. China and Russia togeth- er represent the core of a new coalition of anti-demo- cratic autocracies challeng- ing the Western-imposed, post-Cold War status quo. Their enhanced partnership marks the first emergence of a global coalition against American hegemony since the fall of the Berlin wall. THIS IS an open chal- lenge to the post-Cold War, U.S.-dominated world that Obama inherited and then weakened beyond imagining. If carried through, it would mark the end of a quarter- century of unipolarity. And herald a return to a form of bipolarity — two global coalitions: one free, one not — though, with communism dead, not as structurally rigid or ideologically danger- ous as Cold War bipolarity. Not a fight to the finish, but a struggle nonetheless — for dominion and domination. TO WHICH Obama, who once proclaimed that “no one nation can or should try to dominate another nation,” is passive, perhaps even oblivious. His pivot to Asia remains a dead letter. Yet his withdrawal from the Middle East — where U.S. influence is at its lowest ebb in 40 years — is a fait accom- pli. THE RETREAT is compound- ed by Obama’s proposed major cuts in defense spend- ing (down to below 3 per- cent of GDP by 2017) even as Russia is rearming and China is creating a sophisti- cated military soon capable of denying America access to the waters of the Pacific Rim. DECLINE IS not a condition. Decline is a choice, Obama’s choice. And it’s the one area where he is succeeding splendidly. Charles Krauthammer writes for The Washington Post. His articles can be found at Continued One State Solution for Israel One State Solution: Biblical Perspective by Dr. Douglas Levesque Biblical Perspective by Dr. Douglas Levesque American president, and it’s not just that he double- downed on what [Secretary of State John] Kerry said,” Glick said. “HE GAVE an explicit threat to Israel. He said, ‘We’re not going to protect you, we’re not going to defend you’ .... That is a world turned upside-down.” GLICK SAID the two-state solution being pushed on Israel cannot work. “IT’S A lie, and it’s based upon completely ignoring the fact that the Palestinians could have had a state any- time they wanted to since 1937 but have rejected it. They’re not interested in the state. They’re interested in destroying Israel,” she said. “WHAT I do in my book is I set out a policy alternative to this lie, which is a state of Israel. What Israel should do is apply its laws to the West Bank and grant the Palestinians of those areas full civil rights as perma- nent residents of Israel. “[THEY SHOULD] grant them the ability to apply for Israeli citizenship and forget this whole nonsense about a Palestinian state, whose only purpose in existing is to be yet anoth- er base of attacks against Israel, whose aim is the ulti- mate destruction of Israel.” Bill Hoffmann writes for His articles can be found at http://nws. mx/SQE2jj THERE WERE ‘residents’ in the ‘Holy Land’ before Abraham (the father of the Jews) was sent by God to ‘inhabit’ it. He was ‘prom- ised’ the land and God told his offspring to ‘take’ it. This was NOT a call to genocide, but a conquering of the land. It became a war of possession and still is to this day. God is no uneq- uitable tyrant, but a Savior with a plan to save BOTH the pre- and post-Abraha- mic residents of the land. The miracle that is modern day Israel is not the result of a diplomatic masterpiece nor a military coup, but the fulfillment of God’s earli- est promises to mankind. The two state solution was NEVER a Biblical concept, but an indictment to God’s sure fulfillment of a single Jewish capital to which He will return and reign some- day soon. *GENESIS 12:1-3 “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kin- dred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” *GENESIS 15:18 “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, say- ing, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:” *2 SAMUEL 8:3 “David smote also Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to recov- er his border at the river Euphrates. v.5 And when the Syrians of Damascus came to succour Hadadezer king of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men. v.6 Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus: and the Syrians became ser- vants to David, and brought gifts. And the LORD pre- served David whithersoever he went.” Note: Zobah is modern day Homs, Syria. *ZECHARIAH 12:9 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” FOR FURTHER infor- mation read The Cost of Annapolis or watch The Jerusalem Crucible & WWIII. PRESIDENT OBAMA’S well documented speeches, policies and leadership deci- sions and their propelling of America to the precipice of rapid decline are not simply professional ineptness or political inadequacy, but a well planned and purposed undoing of a Christian and Constitutional America. He repeatedly claims to be a Christian, yet undermines every Biblical definition of God, the Bible, Jesus, sal- vation, sin, heaven, hell, hope and even truth. The same rewrite of vocabulary was recently done before the West Point cadet corps in regards to the term American Exceptionalism. His aim is to diminish the potency of both arenas. THE GREATER threat, however, is not of an anti- christian politician using double speak to masquer- ade as both a prophet and a president, hypocritically swearing on the Bible to uphold the country, but of the mass of, we the people, who have ignorantly, with self-seeking propped up a wolf in sheeps’ clothing as the leader of the free world. We too, are responsible for American decline. *PSALM 9:17 “The wicked shall be tuned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” *PSALM 50:22 “Now con- sider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in piec- es, and there be none to deliver.” AMERICAN DECLINE is the result of forgetting the true God.
