UPDATE from Todd Friel. Bowe Bergdahl’s Father Invokes Allah In Arabic- Obama smiles triumphantly

I have not followed the Bowe Bergdahl issue. I know little about it. Bowe Bergdahl is America's only known prisoner of war. Apparently Obama secured this detained and ailing soldier's release by swapping five Taliban detainees — and leaving most of Congress in the dark. As Congress has become more upset at the President's sudden and unilateral action, it appears as the story unravels, that the soldier may or may not actually be a deserter- not a hero.

I don't follow the ins and outs of politics anymore. I have limited time and limited emotional capacity, so I try not to fill it with incidental things of life. I stay focused on work, my local church, the people I interact with, and studying the bible, prayer, and writing, etc.

I have to admit also that my distaste for our current occupant of the Oval Office aids me in keeping me from looking too closely at our American machinations at home and abroad.

However, something on Allen West's website came to my attention. When Obama held a press conference with the soldier's father, Bob, and the father was speaking, the father spoke in Arabic. They were just a few words, but there you go. Allah was one of the words. Here is former Congressman and Lt. Colonel Allen West's report of the incident.

First words of Bergdahl’s father at White House were Arabic
Clare Lopez is a former CIA operations officer, a strategic policy and intelligence expert with a focus on Middle East, national defense, WMD, and counterterrorism issues, and a friend of mine. She emailed me this morning a very poignant analysis that only someone knowing language and Islam could ascertain. She wrote:
“What none of these media is reporting is that the father’s (SGT Bowe Bergdahl’s father Bob) first words at the WH were in Arabic – those words were “bism allah alrahman alraheem” – which means “in the name of Allah the most gracious and most merciful” – these are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur’an except one (the chapter of the sword – the 9th) – by uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam. There is no question but POTUS knows this.”
Folks, there is a lot to this whole episode — like Benghazi — that we may never know. And this is not conspiracy theory, it is truth based upon Arabic and Islamic dogma and tradition. And here’s the video if you have any questions.


UPDATE, Todd Friel. 56 seconds, another good word from Todd to ponder:


We Americans have been blessed. For the most part we have had leaders who have willing hearts, attitudes of service, and a desire to do the best for our nation and their fellow citizens. Oh, sure, we've had bumblers (Jimmy Carter) some bad ones (James Buchanan), some whose personality did not fit the demands of the job (Ricard Nixon), but overall we never had an inkling that the man whom fellow citizens had elected to office was actually an enemy working against them and did not care at all about their best interests.

Until Obama.


In my opinion, he is a traitor, working actively with satan to dismantle our nation. And that makes me sad, because I love this nation. I mourn for the soldiers who must perform under such a Commander in Chief. I feel empathy for the impoverished ones, the fatherless and the widows in this climate of coldness and rising crime and chaos.

I have felt this way for 7 years. But so what? In looking at nations since the first nations formed in Genesis, 7 years of living under a man who isn't working for Jesus and isn't even working for the best interests of the citizens is a tiny, microscopic mite in the historical scheme of things. What about Pharaoh, who let his own people die out of pride? What about invading armies into Israel, killing children? What about Herod and the Massacre of the Innocents? Nero?

What about Germany's historical shame of Hitler, someone they elected? What about every dictator who ever lived; Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Manuel Noriega, Genghis Khan... Actually, monarchies and dictatorships have been the historical norm for governments. And given man's depraved state, it is only natural that sinful men do sinful things, and even 'good' dictators turn bad.

So who are we to have pity parties over one man for a few years, even while our nation is still one of the wealthiest on the planet? Here is THE question I asked myself: am I more willing to pray for Obama, an obviously lost and hell-bound man, than I am willing to complain about his motives? Am I more willing to complain about Obama than I am to praise Jesus?

I have to admit that I don't pray for him as much as I should. Well I hardly ever pray for him, if I'm honest. And this is despite the fact that the bible says we must pray for our leaders. It is despite the fact that for 42 years I was a sinner like Obama, and only now I am released from the power of sin by Jesus' grace. As it is written in 1 Timothy 2:1-4,

"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

We should not get all tangled up and angry when sinful people do what they normally do: sin. This goes for even our leaders, whom sometimes we set apart as somehow higher, more noble, less sinful. But the lost are just that, lost. A lost man smiles when another prays to a false god. A lost man smiles when his plans for evil seem to be coming true. But God means all evil for good to those who love Him. (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28). It is by God's grace that we even know that He means it for good, having the Holy Spirit in us to illuminate the bible's meaning to us in the verses which declare it so.

As for Obama, all our leaders, any leader, or every sinful person, "Their foot shall slide in due time." (Deuteronomy 32:35). Obama can smile triumphantly all he wants, but the only triumphant smile I will give is the one if in the Lord's purpose and plan, He calls Obama to salvation. I once was a sinner like the president, smiling when false gods were mentioned. If he is saved, we will be brothers in grace. THAT calls for a smile of triumph.

  1. He is the Almighty's instrument of judgement on America. He is a lawless one. Most, including myself cannot even began to keep up with all of the atrocities that he has committed. He was elected because of his alleged profession of faith.
    The entire "church" in America to some degree has been affected and discernment lost because of an unwillingness to stand against measure's that supposedly were in place to protect it but brings it under control of the government.

  3. In order for Marxism YES MARXISM to finally take us over completely, our country has to be overhauled to reflect its values. The road leading to the destruction of our republic has been well traveled for years by those seeking our downfall. We have simply chosen to ignore or refuse to believe what's happening. Calling our founding fathers atheists is just one of many examples demonstrating what is being done to destroy our heritage and ultimately our way of life.


    The very same principles and social models promoted in Marxism have infiltrated our businesses, families and churches. And of course the elimination of God and His influence is absolutely essential to the success of Marxism. Let me explain how this is working in our churches while keeping in mind the same model is being used in business and schools. You cannot defeat an enemy like we now face without first learning how they function. Their attacks have become more sophisticated and well-disguised. And they are winning! The only question remaining is will we expend the time and energy to learn the "truth" and how to fight back or will we just continue to stick our heads in the sand? I hope the following will inspire those of you who want to actively pursue a return to sanity.


    It all started with Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (Hegelianism) who was responsible for not only Karl Marx's thoughts but heavily influenced Peter Drucker's (all 3 men were atheists) models for successful businesses. This was later used by Drucker's disciple Rick Warren to grow his mega church. We've seen an explosion of this "business model practice" in schools, businesses and seeker sensitive churches.


    You will see it referred to in several different ways. Diaprax and the Church -- Manipulating the Church into Globalism -- How the Church is incorporating the Diaprax and why --


    The Hegelian Dialectic, Georg Wilheim Freidrich Hegel 1770-1831-- is to mix the truth and untruth together creating a new starting point for the next round with each round getting further and further away from the truth. The diaprax means to "practice" in small groups led by a facilitator. The objective is to achieve consensus of a predetermined outcome. By putting believers with nonbelievers you attempt to take nonbelievers away from their original beliefs and create a consensus. But by mixing truth (thesis) with error (antithesis) you end up destroying the truth for the sake of harmony (synthesis). And you end up with a new starting point that will further dilute the truth as the process continues. In other words, you have to bring dissenting opinion into the church in order for the dialectic to operate. That requires nonbelievers being involved in the process of defining the truth which they are in no way qualified or capable of doing. It produces the first drop of black paint mixed in with the white paint and every drop from then forward alters the white color until eventually all you have is black paint. The process also destroys the purity of the truth immediately.


    Simply stated you start with:

    Step 1. Thesis (Truth)

    You add:

    Step 2. Antithesis (Untruth/Dissent/Disagreement)

    And come to:

    Step 3. Synthesis (Compromised Truth/Agreement) (This becomes the new Thesis)


    You then repeat the process over and over again until what began as the "truth" becomes so diluted as to become unrecognizable and finally lost. Moral absolutes are sacrificed on the altar of “Relativism” and each individual becomes their own source of the "truth". The real source of truth (The Bible) becomes a church prop and ultimately a coffee table book.


    Believers have been negligent in exposing false doctrine and in allowing secular and even atheistic practices to infiltrate our society, businesses, schools and churches. The "enemy" is not afraid to demand their agenda. Why are we?

  4. So there you have it. Basically we have allowed ourselves and our children to be brainwashed into believing anything we are taught as long as it agrees with the consensus. Moral absolutes are seen as unloving and judgmental and what is now accepted as "truth" is subject to change without notice and in fact will change as a result of the Marxist model used in our society.


    The “truth” of relativism is more accurately defined as “opinion”. It is a moving target fueled by the denial of moral absolutes. It has given birth to such nonsense as “you have your truth, I have my truth and they have their truth”. And relativism is foundational to the success of Marxism, seeker sensitive churches and key to the indoctrination required for a society founded on Christian values to ultimately abandon God.

  5. Nice article. We always must remember that God Himself appoints all government leaders...and those who serve in it.
    If we sit and slam those in high positions, we are "slamming" God's plan. Not a good thing to do.
    Pray for our leaders we must do, even if it takes much effort on our part. We are blessed to see prophecy playing out before our very eyes during these times and in this age of the Church. Of the Body of Christ.

    1. I certainly agree we should pray for our "Leaders" & "Mis-Leaders" as well. And those prayers should include petitioning God to instill in them the strength and desire to accomplish His will and for the Holy Spirit’s intervention and regenerating power. But to suggest that God is commanding us to submit to corruption, succumb to injustice, acquiesce to evil or in any way bow to “those in high positions” whose culpability is beyond doubt a lie from hell is absolute lunacy.

      I doubt God was whispering in Jesus’ ear to show some respect as He man handled the money changers in the Temple. Nor did Jesus bow and scrape to Pilot or anyone else in “authority”. He challenged them at every opportunity. And Pilot was certainly in a “high position” and being taken to task by Jesus was in no way "slamming" God's plan. We should follow the example of Christ to always “stand” against evil and corruption no matter where it is found including “all government leaders...and those who serve in it”.

      “If we sit and slam those in high positions, we are "slamming" God's plan. Not a good thing to do.”

      I agree that we shouldn’t just sit and slam. We should pull our collective heads from the sand, get off our lazy fannies and do whatever is necessary to defeat those who are evil even if they are “in high positions”.

      When it becomes glaringly evident that the "Mis-Leaders" are doing their best to destroy Christianity and adopt actions (either legally or illegally) that are in complete conflict with His moral absolutes and Word, then those “leaders” are no longer leaders but “doers of evil”. Scripture tells us what we will face but never once suggests we just sit idly by while evil reigns regardless of where it resides!
      Luke 21:12-16
      "…they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. This will result in your being witnesses to them. But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death."

      I wonder how much loss of freedom, destruction to our Constitution and level of disgust must be experienced before people in this once great Republic finally come to grips with the fact we have a Marxist Muslim in the White House? Or maybe the real question is how was he elected or re-elected after his personae both as a candidate and president were exposed so thoroughly? There is no longer any doubt as to Obama’s despicable ideological beliefs. There were some who warned of this now well-known and unhidden fact long before Obama's first incursion errr election. But those critics were scorned as extremists. (Talk about scorners in need of a “log-ectomy”) Matthew 7:1-5


      We have been like the frog that was brought to a slow but avert-able boil eventually resulting in his death. A death due to his stubborn and ill-advised preference to a temporary level of comfort and exacerbated by his unwillingness to act in his own behalf. We were also further lulled into an ever increasing sense of complacency in spite of the totally revealed and painfully obvious facts of who Obama is under his disguise as a sheep. And let’s not forget the equally guilty members of congress who provided lip service yet sat on their hands!

      The causes included, an aggressive Marxist, an apathetic, greedy and largely uneducated voting public and elected officials with the heart of a “Chicken”, the leadership qualities of a “Lemming” and the morals of an “Alley Cat”. A perfect “trifecta” for the “track” on which we chose to run the race of life! And the consequences will cause the slow decay and nauseously morbid stink of yet another Godless great world power to be known only as the American carcass!

    2. We are a country destined for the garbage dump of history reserved exclusively for those societies who chose to recklessly ignore God or eventually discharge Him in favor of satisfying their sin nature and promoting a belief in the “god of self”. As a Godless society we seek that which refuses to acknowledge the truth of moral absolutes, challenges what we want to believe and teaches the Doctrine of Relativism as the one and only source of “truth” - A truth that’s in a constant state of change - A truth better defined as “opinion”. If you don’t like what it says today, it’s kinda like the weather. It will change quickly and often!

      And this Obama Wolf (Marxist) in Sheep’s clothing has disgraced our Country, our Constitution and our Laws with the impunity of a dictator. He oozed with the appearance of immunity exposing his hypocrisy and a total contempt for his sworn oath of office. His amorality and his evil agenda were manifested further by a lack of fear. Obama was not the least bit concerned about being held accountable or any resulting penalties for his criminal activity. What little negative rhetoric existed was followed by a total lack of any substantive legal pursuit by our elected guardians of the realm. That, of course, served only to encourage even worse executive branch behavior and more Marxist initiatives. Executive orders abounded while congress slept thereby leading to Obama’s now self-proclaimed, and according to him, “necessary dictatorship”.

      His agenda and his actions during both terms of office have been indisputably ideologically driven. Obama was elected twice by those who sold their votes in exchange for even more government handouts. Ready fire aim!!! You just can’t make this stuff up!!!

      Truth has a habit of being stranger than even the dumbest things you can possibly make up or imagine.

      Often, we find that what appears to us as “serving our own best interest” is in reality “serving the cause of our demise”.

      And those who continued to sell their votes to the “Robin Hood Obama” elected him to a second term. There was barely even a squeak from those who now had to know who he was and what he represented. In order for Marxism to endure it must continue to support slothfulness and the use of OPM (Other People’s Money). But those on the receiving end are heading for a rude awakening. One day, in the not too distant future, all of those who were having their wealth redistributed, by the Robin Hood of Marxism, will no longer have anything left to steal, errr redistribute. Now there is a big “OOPS” and an even bigger “UH OH!!! “

      It’s not too late to become “Onward Christian Soldiers” instead of one of the weak and frightened lost little lambs. Jesus will return when He pleases and non-action on our part in hopes that it’s soon is unacceptable. We know how the story ends but not how long the last chapter will continue. And we are commanded too carry on until the end with our battle against evil and to be clad in the “full armor of God” and the “breastplate of righteousness”.
      Ephesians 6:13-17
      New American Standard Bible (NASB)
      13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
