With Obama seeking to bring so-called Syrian refugees to America, he is asking for trouble. Some state Governors have seen the danger and have halted any settlements to their state.
However, other states like California have chosen a different path. For example California’s governor Jerry Brown has stated he will work closely with Obama to ensure that such refugees come to the state. What this means is that ISIS and other Islamic Jihadis will be able to come to the country for free. Either the President and the governor along with others are naive to what will happen or they know it will happen but don’t care that it will happen. Either way, it would appear we citizens are not among friends in leadership if this is in fact what they decide to do.
It would appear that our protection has taken a back seat to political correctness and tolerance to Islamic murder. I think it’s far past time we all should be asking, which side is Obama on?
Nevertheless, for Christians we must pray for our leaders that they and others will see how dangerous these decisions are and then perhaps they will not in fact continue to carry them out.

In the Aftermath of Paris Attack 2015, there is Hope
When referring to the recent deadly attacks in Paris France, The Drudge Report got the headline right when it posted “Muslim Rampage in Paris“. The attacks where not caused by some fringe group of terrorists nor were they random in nature. This Paris attack, like all the other bombings and murderous rampages which usually include the infamous words “Allahu Akbar” before destruction is unleashed, is done deliberately by followers of one of the first mass murderers in history: Muhammad.
In a day when so-called tolerance of all except for Christians and Jews is the talking point and political correctness is the mantra for many, we will see terror increase. Until leaders and authorities around the world wake up to the harsh and unpopular reality that the religion of Islam is not really a religion of peace but is in fact behind the destruction and persecution we have around the world there will be an increase of terror and murder against Christians, Jews and the rest of the Kafirs (all non-Muslims).
Such ignorance will not be without a cost. We are paying for our ignorance with beheadings, suicide bombings, mass tortures and murders like 9/11 and Paris 2015. Whether we call the terrorism ISIS, al-Qaeda, jihad or something else the written manual and source is the same. And while authorities continue to be ignorant of the source for these attacks and wonder at the motive of the attacks themselves, the attacks and Islamic terrorist activity will grow because Islam, Muhammad and the god allah demand it.
Islamic Terror in France
In the aftermath of the Islamic massacre that recently took place in Paris France people are scared, worried and wondering what is going on in this world. The chaos and carnage that any tragic event creates makes us wonder if there is or will ever be hope and real peace. Perhaps you are asking those questions now.
So is there hope? Can there ever be real peace?
The answers are clear in the Bible as to what our future is but sin and hatred of God keeps people rejecting what God says about it. There is going to be final judgment coming against lawlessness, the breaking of God’s moral law (sin) and all evil.
“It is appointed for men to die once but after this the judgment” see Hebrews 9:27
However we can have eternal peace and hope in the face of uncertainty and world chaos. This is not to say one will feel at peace about what is going on with the evil and destruction we experience and see in this life but we can know the Prince of Peace and escape coming judgment in Hell.
After you die, where will you go?
Heaven or Hell? or something else?
God is holy and perfect and He cannot have sin in His presence.
Have you ever lied?
Do you put God first in your life?
Ever used God’s name as a cuss word to express disgust?
Hitler and Mohammed are not hated this much.
Lusted? Jesus said lust is the same as adultery of the heart. (Matthew 5:27-28)
As the good person test reveals and God word says, we have broken God’s perfect standard, His Moral Law (the Ten Commandments) and because of God’s perfection and holiness we deserve judgment in Hell.
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
Upon honestly answering those questions, it quickly becomes apparent we are all guilty before God of breaking His perfect standard. Therefore, we need a Savior—a way of escape from His judgment of sin. (James 2:10)
Trying to keep God’s commands or doing good things is not the way but there is a Way which only God can provide for escape because He is the Judge.
Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
He sent His Son Jesus Christ—God manifest in the flesh—to die on a cross paying the penalty for our breaking His Law (Sin). (Ro. 5:8)
Jesus rose from the dead after three days defeating sin and death. (1 Cor. 15:3-4)
When you repent from your sin (turn from it as in changing your mind about committing sin) and trust in Jesus Christ alone to save you from the wrath to come (judgment against sin), you will have eternal life! (John 3:36, Titus 3:4-7, Ro 6:23)
I am a big fan of the X-plane 10 flight simulator. However, there are many simple and complex features both visually and technically (such as ATC) that could be added to enhance X-plane 10. Excellent airport addons and plugins are already available such as Real Terra Haze which can greatly enhance ones playing experience in X-plane 10. In this post I want to focus on 5 visual features that would enhance and do enhance its basic realism for the casual user.
- Depth perception in X-plane 10 appears to be lacking especially in and around clouds. In real life, when viewing an aircraft from the ground or from any exterior view, as it enters a cloud (s) the aircraft will disappear and emerge out the other side. In X-plane 10 this does not occur but instead the aircraft is always kept in view despite it passing through clouds. Not very realistic.
- Contrails or vapor trails in X-plane 10 are not as visible and as bold as seen in real life. In X-plane when viewing an aircraft from the ground in many cases vapor trails are not visible at all despite the aircraft altitude. Contrails in X-plane 10 should be enhanced, brightened and even lengthened depending on the humidity and air temperature as occurs in real life.
- Sun reflection on water doesn’t appear realistic but instead appears to be much too defined. Many times it appears large and washed out.
- Types of Clouds and their height. Cloud types in X-plane 10.41 have been improved since X-plane 10 was first released. However, the height of clouds and various types of storm clouds such as Cumulonimbus clouds need to be improved and/or added to the sim. In my opinion most clouds in X-plane 10 are still without great definition and appear as heavy fog or stratus layers even during a storm and in the distance.
- Realistic atmospheric haze is not part of X-plane 10 by default but adding it creates yet another layer of visual realism. Real Terra Haze (RTH) in conjunction with the plugin FlyWithLuia creates realistic looking atmospheric blue haze when flying over mountains and varied terrain. These plugins can be added to X-plane 10 to give that necessary bluish realism (among other enhancements) we wanna-be pilots so enjoy seeing.
What visual enhancements would you like to see in a default copy of X-plane 10?

As was mentioned in part one (of Liberal Democrats Hate Christians and Conservatism), Christians, Conservatives and Black and female conservatives are no stranger to fabricated attacks. False attacks have always occurred in the attempt to remove a candidate from running for President of the United States.
The belief by some that liberals and Democrats care first about having a female or black leader in power quickly dissipates when it’s learned that the female or black person is a Christian and/or Conservative. Herman Cain was falsely accused of sexual harassment in 2011 but when he dropped out of the race for the presidency the charges and reports seemed to magically disappear. When Democrats hate and are threatened by the beliefs of Christian Conservatives regardless of whether they are black or female, these Democrat media types must do their best to stop such people from becoming President. They will do what they can even if it means slander, character assassination and lying. When the Democrat media learn this potential future leader of America believes in biblical values and morals and that Christians and Jewish persecution and murder is evil nor will tolerate it, the target they have already placed on the candidates back gets even bigger.
However, when a Democrat lies about something truly serious such as is the case with Hillary Clinton and the Benghazi-email-YouTube-video escapade in a which American citizens were murdered, we see a great attempt by the Democrat media to ignore it altogether in the hopes this too will pass. When black on black homicide rates go up in cities across America, we don’t hear much more than a yawn out of them but when a black or minority person gets shot by a cop in self-defense, the President himself in conjunction with the Democrat media manufacturer concern about the rise of race related violence by the good guys.
In another recent decision against Christians, Barack Obama neglected to make a deal with Iran that would free Christian Saeed Abedini and other innocent Americans from an Iranian prison. Instead he opted to make a deal with Iran allowing them nuclear weapons despite the fact we know the Iranians hate Americans, Jews and Christians. I believe Barack Obama made this deal with the Iranians because he supports what they do and shares their Islamic faith.
We know that Barack Obama is not a Christian because the media would have destroyed him long ago, continue to shame him and he would not have become the President of the United States, twice. However, this type of shame is being attempted in real-time against the Republican front-runners namely Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz. If Carly Fiorina becomes the front-runner we will watch the slanderous attacks come against her. Now do we find false slanderous attacks or character assassination articles written by the Democrat mainstream against Hillary Clinton who just happens to currently be the Democrat front-runner? I can’t even hear crickets.
Liberal Democrats Hate Christians and Conservatism – Part One
Just by watching the Democrat media reaction to a candidate we can learn which candidates are Christian and/or Conservative and which ones are not or are fakes. The media will attack in the attempt to destroy any person who is a true Christian, Conservative and/or has biblical values. Pro life? Pro biblical marriage? Fighting to save Christians and others from persecution? You will be attacked, lied about and targeted. In this case the person in line for attack is Ben Carson. Before that it was Donald Trump. Before that is was Herman Cain, George W. Bush, Michele Bachmann, Alan Keyes and the list goes on. Currently we see the hate the Democrats and liberals have for Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin. All of these people have one thing in common. They stand behind Christians, biblical values and hate what God calls evil.
Again the Democrat media is pretending that not lying matters to them because they know it’s important to Christians. In this case they are doing this by fabricating a story about Mr. Carson. This cleverly written story attempts to make it appear that Ben Carson lied about his attendance at a specific school in the past. If the Democrats can smear a Christian Conservative their work is complete. Even though these Christians and conservatives stand-up against Muslim terrorists like ISIS and Al-Qaeda who kill Christians, the Democrat media will instead attempt to destroy the Christians and conservatives who want to fight this enemy. Could the Democrat and liberal media secretly be rooting for ISIS? Could the likes of Michael Moore and Bill Maher who really hate God be rooting for the enemies of America because their goals are the same?
One proof that any person is not or not wanting to be on the enemy’s side would be their support for people who stand against the murder of innocents such as is seen in Christian based persecution and abortion. They would instead support people who believe that such persecution of Christians, Jews and others is pure evil. They would believe that the imprisonment, torture and murder of those who have faith in Jesus Christ can only originate from the devil himself because of his hatred of God. They would vote for true justice where good triumphs over evil and God’s moral standards are upheld.
Next time I will visit how Democrats and liberals alike continue their false accusations against Christians and conservative candidates who run for president in their attempt to destroy them.
Rush Limbaugh: It’s a Coordinated Attack
Republican candidates get slandered and mocked daily for their biblically based beliefs and views by many in the Democrat media and on social media. So when Republicans decide who gets to air their next debate is no surprise when they get labeled weaklings by Barrack Obama.
Conservatives are no strangers to the hatred and disdain the Democrats have for them especially as it pertains to views on marriage, the Bible, God, and abortion. Let us not forget how the Democrats removed the mention of God from their party platform in 2012. Of course, we know God cannot actually be removed from a platform or school but He can be denied as many already attempt to do.
In light of the fact Barrack Obama called the Republican presidential candidates weak, I challenge the Democrat and liberal candidates to allow Rush Limbaugh to be moderator for a debate to be aired on Fox News. Not only would Mr. Limbaugh be fair, he would ask substantive questions not engaging in childish games in an attempt to get the candidates fighting among themselves as was seen on CNBC.
Will we ever see such a debate? I doubt it simply because everyone knows when substantive, relevant questions are asked it becomes clear who wants to fix problems and who doesn’t. In a debate where Rush Limbaugh was moderator we would see just how unfit the Democrat candidates are to be president and how morally corrupt they are on many issues.

The 2015 Kansas City Royals baseball team proved that you don’t need a $300 million dollar plus payroll like the Los Angeles Dodgers to win a World Series. What a team needs is a solidly deep pitching bullpen, reliable starting pitching and great hitters in the clutch. The Dodgers and New York Mets both proved that a weaker bullpen loses games and inconsistent hitting will also lose games.
I hope the upper management for the Los Angeles Dodgers will take notice from this 2015 World Series that money doesn’t necessarily win games, but great players win games. In addition, computer analytics can hinder winning a game when it’s great pitching, battering and old-fashioned baseball playing that it takes to win. In 2014 and 2015 the Dodgers seemed to forget about playing old-time Dodger baseball with small ball and by adapting to each play as it unfolds. The management of late has appeared to become more concerned about what a computer says about a situation, overall game statistics and pitching counts regardless of how the players are playing. Of course without solid pitching from the bullpen and reliable clutch hitting, no amount of flexibility is going to win a game.
It is my opinion that when good players are left alone to play baseball and the coaching and management knows the right times to step aside, great things will happen on the field for the team. The 2015 Royals proved just that by not only winning the World Series but because they were able to come from behind to win three of the five games in the series. The 2015 Kansas City Royals are a team all baseball clubs should be watching and be taking notes on how winning baseball is played.
