How easily they lie. Tuesday April 1st, 2003
Have you ever noticed how easy it is for some to lie? This despicable behavior seems most prevalent amongst politicians from the lowest to amongst the highest and most elite. Another group that lying seems to not only be considered acceptable, but even desirable is amongst those legends in their own minds, the so called main stream media.
Does the media lie? Kind of a stupid question isn't it? We all know that the Peter Arnett's the Peter Jennings, the Portland Press Herald, New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and so many others have made a career of putting political agenda ahead of the truth. But, with the media we have options, we can always go to any number of honest Christian News sites to get the truth. Not so with the political process, for those in office are the ones we are stuck with. We in Maine have two US Congressman and two US Senate harlots. That's it, while we can call write to any number of other members of the House and the Senate, the two that are responsible to us are the ones we need to rely upon.
You know when someone will lie about little irrelevant things, they will lie about anything. Here today I am going to give you two examples of just how ingrained lying is to many of Maine's politicians, from a US Senator to an egotistical town manager of a two bit backwoods Maine town.
About a week ago I went to the town hall in Harrison, Maine. I asked the town manager, Mike, a very simple question, a question whose answer is so easily to found in other places, that it would be only possible for one to lie about the answer if one were so inclined to lie that lies came natural. Here is what happened. I had read in the local weekly paper that Harrison's share to the School funding was going to increase by $155,000. So, I asked Mike, "when will budget hearings be held?" He said he didn't know the exact date, but not till around town meeting which is in June. This morning I heard on the local radio station that the first budget hearings are starting, that the one in Harrison will be tomorrow night, the night of April 2nd, 2003. It was also, I have been told, in last Thursday's weekly paper. A local call to the School department would have easily given me the answer as well, so, Mike's lying was simply the result of having so little regard and respect for the truth, that lying comes natural.
US Senators are always telling us that they want to hear from us. That they want our input. Now, each state has two US Senators, some states have two senators for twenty five plus million people, other states, like Maine have two Senators for only one million people. I think we can all agree that the Estrada nomination is one of importance, one in which you would think our US Senators would want our input. And I can assure you, Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, is no exception. She, at every occasion in front of the local media, reiterates her desire to hear from Maine residents. So, I sent her an e-mail encouraging her to vote to end the filibuster and vote to confirm Michael Estrada to the position of appellate judge for the Washington, DC District.
Here is the e-mail I got regarding my e-mail to Senator Collins office:
To: Collins, Senator (Collins)
Subject: concerning Estrada
Sent: Wed, 26 Feb 2003 08:24:40 -0500
was deleted without being read on Sat, 29 Mar 2003 00:11:59 -0500 "
Now think about it for a moment, anyone using outlook express for their e-mail can set it up to ask for a receipt that the e-mail they sent has been received, this receipt process also let's you know if your mail has been opened, or just deleted without ever having been opened.
In both the above instances, we see how easily politicians lie. These are just two of any number of incidents of blatant lies by these two, but, these two examples are amongst the best examples of how, politicians on every level, from the US Senate to one step below dog catcher, have been infected with clinton lie disease. How, because former President William Jefferson Blythe, Clinton was allowed by the US Senate to be immune for the crime of perjury, lying has become a way of life for politicians inclined to follow in the footsteps of Clinton and Clinton's god.
Now, let's look at the root problem for the pathological behavior of the Mike's and Susan's of this nation:
Then said they unto Him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning. I have many things to say and to judge of you: but He that sent Me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of Him. 27 They understood not that He spake to them of the Father.
Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father hath taught Me, I speak these things. And He that sent Me is with Me: the Father hath not left Me alone; for I do always those things that please Him. As He spake these words, many believed on Him.
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered Him, "We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, 'Ye shall be made free'?" Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill Me, because My word hath no place in you. I speak that which I have seen with My Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto Him, Abraham is our father.
Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill Me, a Man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father.
Then said they to Him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of Myself, but He sent Me.
Why do ye not understand My speech? even because ye cannot hear My words? Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe Me not. (John 8:25-45)
So, why is it that Mike and Susan found it so easy to lie? They lie so easily for the same reason that so many in the media do, as the Lord God Creator of all things has said: "Ye(liars) are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
Thank God that Jesus has seen fit to place a Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian in the position of President and Attorney General. Thank God, that while we are in the minority, more and more of our Military are coming to know our Lord and not the lord of the liars, the deceivers, the murders of babies in the womb.
Blessed be He who created all things and may it continue to please Him to bless us who have given our lives and our allegiance to Him.
Lord God Creator of all things, we, the people of the USA, give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Amen. And Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them before they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil left by Saul. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian evangelist preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
All Scripture is quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
