Muslim Dinner at White House


Muslim Dinner at White House

By Julio Severo
According to CBNNews, President Barack Obama praised the accomplishments of Muslims in America at his fifth annual Iftar dinner. The event, hosted at the White House Thursday, is an observance of the Muslim Holy month of Ramadan.
While the Muslim ideology kills Christians around the world, Obama praises it at White House
“Throughout our history Islam has contributed to the character of our country, and Muslim Americans and their good works have helped to build our nation and we have seen the results,” Obama said.
The Muslim tradition at the White House was not begun by Obama. It began under President Bill Clinton and was continued by President George W. Bush.
This is a departure from the Christian character of America by Democratic and Republican presidents. Islam was a strong reality in the time of the Founders, but no one of them thought of hosting a Muslim observance, especially at the White House.
And especially because, whether in the past or present, the Muslim ideology is the main source of persecution and martyrdom for Christians around the world. There is no logical reason for America, a nation founded by persecuted Christians, to celebrate a religious ideology with Christian blood in its hands.
According to Paul Marshall, in the book “Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians” (Thomas Nelson, p. 123), “The most widespread persecution of Christians today takes place in the Muslim world, and it is spreading and intensifying.”
Marshall points out that “Even though the remaining Communist countries persecute the most Christians, it is in the Muslim world where persecution of Christians is now most widespread, intense, and, ominously, increasing” (p. 11).
Before their foolish decision of hosting a celebration for an anti-Christian ideology, Clinton, Bush and Obama should have consulted the surviving victims of this ideology.
And the White House, with its past Christian history, should do more for persecuted Christians, including the Romeike family who, like the Pilgrims, fled Europe because of persecution against their Christian convictions. But, different of the Pilgrims, the German family did not find the same America to welcome them in their plight.

The government is the problem


The government is the problem

By Julio Severo
Thirty years ago, President Ronald Reagan said in his memorable first inaugural address, “The government is the problem”. (Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wteMdwFo0Pw) Not that the government in his time was doing what it is doing today, by promoting sodomy, abortion and even Islam.

Government was already the problem because it did not cease to intrude and to mutilate the natural rights and freedoms of people. Government, which has the responsibility to control criminality, was busy controlling the non-criminal affairs of people.
This Problem was so big that Reagan, as a president, was unable to eliminate it completely. He was determined to strike down the shameful Supreme Court ruling “Roe v. Wade,” which has caused the murder of millions of American unborn citizens, but the powerful machinery of the Problem made impossible for him to take this disgrace away from America. The Problem was too powerful to him.
He was able to say that the government is the problem because he was at the head of the Problem, and he saw its power and wickedness, which were growing bigger and bigger.
Today, the Problem is focused on the worldwide promotion of problems, including sodomy and abortion, with the help of other Problems — governments that willingly or not accept the immoral trends in the American culture and policies.
It is now a Global Problem. Unstoppable. Arrogant. Immoral. Murderous. Unmerciful.
Many would point their fingers and say that the problem is its current president. But he is just a problematic president of the Global Problem.
The Problem has grown so big that it is now able to continue its progress even without its problematic presidents, although they have been very helpful to advance its wicked march.
Problematic presidents are at ease with the Problem. So are their admirers.
Gay supremacists, guests of the current problematic president, made obscene gestures at the portrait of President Reagan during a recent gay-pride reception at the White House.

They are at ease with their problem at the House of the Problem. But they are not at ease at the presence of the image of a man that, even unable to tame the Problem, was able to pinpoint its nature and wickedness.
His mere image is a trouble for problematic people.
With more Reagans, the Problem would be in big trouble!

Has Obama failed to advance leftism in America?


Has Obama failed to advance leftism in America?

By Julio Severo
Roberto Unger, a prominent Brazilian politician and an adviser to Obama in 2008, said that “President Obama must be defeated in the coming election” because “he has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States,” according to a Daily Mail report.
Roberto Unger: Obama “failed” in the progressive cause
He also said that, “despite their fierce rivalry, the Democrats’ agenda is little different to that of the Republicans”.
In this point, he just confirmed my suspicion: the leftist agenda was advanced in different degrees, by Democrats and Republicans, throughout the world through the US government. (Of course, Ronald Reagan is a notable exception.)
Daily Mail said that “Mr. Unger is a renowned politician in his native Brazil. He has twice run for president of Brazil… Unger was one of the founding members of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party”.
With his impressive credentials as a professor at Harvard Law since 1976, “he has also advised on politics throughout Latin America.” Has his advice failed to help advance the progressive cause in this region? In any case, Latin America is becoming a Union of Latin American Socialist Republics.
He has taught law with a progressive bias for more than 35 years, and has no one in America noticed? Other prominent Brazilian Marxists, including Fernando Henrique Cardoso, have also been professors in prominent American universities.
Harvard, established in 1636, was named after Puritan minister John Harvard (1607–38), who bequeathed to the school his books and half of his estate. Although never formally affiliated with a church, Harvard primarily trained Protestant ministers. Today, although never formally avowing Marxism, Harvard primarily trains leftists…
If the original intent of Harvard’s Pilgrim founders were implemented, Unger would have gotten the boot. If Unger’s original intent were implemented, Obama would get the boot for being a “weak” progressive. As for the Pilgrims, Unger would have expelled them from Harvard and America because they were not progressive at all!
Mr. Unger’s most famous student was Barack Obama, who attended Harvard Law School in 1988. He studied jurisprudence and the art of “reinventing democracy.”
Obama has indeed reinvented the de facto leftist democracy built up over for decades by Democrats and Republicans, but this is not enough for Professor Unger, who is a respected author having published dozens of books on economics, philosophy and politics.
In his view, Obama “has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States.” Apparently Unger expects his students to establish “democratic” governments in the model of the Soviet Union!
In Unger’s thinking, Stalin should no doubt have been defeated because he “failed” to advance the communist cause in Russia, and Hitler “failed” to advance Nazi ideology in Germany…
Unger reminds me of Anglican Bishop Robinson Cavalcanti, founder of the Progressive Evangelical Movement, a NGO composed of leftist Protestant militants in Brazil. Cavalvanti was a member of the socialist Workers’ Party, founded by former President Luiz Inácio “Lula” da Silva. It is the ruling party in Brazil today. Cavalcanti left this party because, in his view, it betrayed socialism!
I just wonder why Cavalcanti failed to get a professor’s chair in Harvard to teach Obama and others.
If America had followed the intent of her Christian founders, she would never have had an Unger in Harvard or an Obama in the White House. Harvard would keep training ministers, not leftists. The White House would stop being a house of horrors advocating internationally sodomy and abortion. And Reagans would be the rule, not the exception.

Lewd behavior is no surprise in a culture of unrestraint


Lewd behavior is no surprise in a culture of unrestraint

US Secret Service and its dirty secrets

By Julio Severo
Colombia, the South American Thailand according to the US media, threw the presidential trip of Barack Obama in a scandal when some his secret agents engaged in prostitution.
The Colombia scandal erupted the morning of April 12, when a fight over payment between a prostitute and a Secret Service officer spilled into the hotel, local police and media.
The secret of the secret agents was exposed for lack of payment to a prostitute!
Several Secret Service officers have been forced out.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano assured skeptical lawmakers that what happened in Colombia was an “isolated” incident.
But an investigation is being made to check whether secret agents hired strippers and prostitutes in advance of President Obama’s visit last year to El Salvador.
This week, The Washington Post reported that Secret Service senior managers had tolerated similar behavior during previous official trips. The Post described a visit to Buenos Aires in 2009 by former President Bill Clinton, whose protective detail it said included agents and uniformed officers. During that trip, the Post said, members of the detail went out for a late night of partying at strip clubs.
In Brazil, Mariners serving the US Embassy attacked prostitutes and ran over a young prostitute last year. They were demoted as punishment.
Lewd behavior should be no surprise for a nation where Hollywood, the biggest propaganda machine in the world, reigns supreme in its movies shamelessly promoting prostitution in the name of “free love”. Hollywood teaches the world to have a good time with any girl. Any wonder about the “good times” of JFK, or Bill Clinton, or FDR?
Just try to talk about sexual restraint to a JFK or Bill Clinton!
In a recent book, Mimi Alford tells that her virginity was taken when she was a 19-year-old intern in the White House. The seducer was President John F. Kennedy. By some reason, the Secret Service was unable or unwilling to protect the teen intern from a serial adulterer, but successfully kept his lewd behavior a secret. Other lewd behaviors of Kennedy and other US presidents were also protected by the Secret Service. At least one of Kennedy’s mistresses, Mary Pinchot Meyer, was allegedly murdered by the CIA.
Mimi Alford was lucky to be left alive.
Having watched and loved Hollywood and known the sexual freedoms of their bosses, why could not Secret Service agents use some of this freedom too?
The Colombian prostitutes were lucky that they did not end as Mary Pinchot Meyer. But there is no doubt that the Secret Service would have had no problem in the South American Thailand if one of its agents had not fought over payment to a prostitute, turning their prostitution into a scandal that exposed a dirty secret.
But why so much fuss? The Secret Service has protected the immoral proclivities of US presidents, even by allegedly killing some of their mistresses, in a culture where Hollywood has imposed its debaucheries internationally as a norm.
Ted Kennedy, a late US senator and brother of JFK, rented an entire brothel for a night during a trip to Chile in 1961.  At the time, he had been married to his first wife, Joan, for three years. Had he and his brother some respect for marriage vows or morality?
Why should the Secret Service do differently?
Prostitution and sex without commitment are a blatant legacy of sexual unrestraint.
When a nation and its government advocate for unrestraint, they cannot expect a clean behavior from their representatives.
By rejecting her Christian and moral foundations, America cannot expect from her leaders a sexual restraint she is incapable of defending in her society.
