WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Islamists in the Middle East are speaking out following President Barack Obama’s re-election Tuesday night. The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood feels that the only foreign policy change Obama can bring is by “accepting the will of the Arab people.”
“We must rely on ourselves and on our resources and build our country,” Issam Al-Aryan, a top Muslim Brotherhood official, said, according to The Times of Israel. “In the absence of direct American influence, Egypt can affect and lead the process of building a democratic and constitutional regime that will become a dream for African and the southern hemisphere.”
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood wants to make Shariah Law the main source of the country’s new constitution.
Terror group Hamas is calling for Obama not to be “biased” toward Israeli interests during his second term.
“We heard moderate speech from Obama following his first term victory, but his policy was inconsistent with the speeches he gave in Egypt and Turkey,” Taher Nunu, a Hamas government spokesman, said, according to The Times of Israel. “He now has an opportunity to implement those promises to the nations of the region, far from pressures by the Israel lobby and politicized money.”

The winds of change have shifted against you
Israel, oh Israel. As the prophet Daniel saw the handwriting on the wall of the palace, so too have you now seen the handwriting on the wall of America. What took place in our national election for president last night had very little to do with the battle between conservative and liberal, or red state versus blue state.
No, what happened last night was a barometer of how we, as a nation feel about the issues in front of us. We didn’t vote with ballots so much as we voted with our hearts, with our passions, and with our national vision of who America shall be for the next four years.
We have said with our votes that the likes and passions of Barack Hussein Obama are the likes and passions of the America people. So here then, is a brief sampling of what the American people voted on and consented to last night.
On the sanctity of life. America showed last night that we no longer value human life. I say this because we re-elected a man who whole-heartedly condones and supports the murder of unborn Americans in the womb of their mother. Since 1967, we have killed over 54,900,000 unborn babies, a holocaust by anyone’s standards. And Barack Obama is more pro-abortion that anyone who served as president before him.
In 2003, Obama was asked if he was pro-choice on abortion “in all situations including the late-term thing.” Obama replied: “I’m pro-choice.” In 2012 he is even more dedicated to the killing of the unborn. Ask yourself this, Mr. Prime Minister…if Obama cares nothing for the murder of innocent lives, why then would he care in the least bit about the murder of Israeli lives?
On Islamic Terrorism. From the moment Obama took office in 2008,he made well-known to the world his love to Islam and the Muslim people. In his Cairo speech, he pledged to support and nurture Islam and the Muslim people. Has he ever set foot in Israel and made a speech affirming his love for the Jews? Has he ever, as president, visited Israel for any purpose of any kind? No, he has not.
So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear. – Barack Hussein Obama. Cairo 2009
He is fighting for Islam, and he is fighting against Israel. He will put the national interests of any Muslim nation over the interests and security of Israel every time. The only reason why Israel still receives support and funding from America is because Congress overrides Obama. But after last night’s election, I dare say you may no longer count even on that. The fact that America re-elected a president who hates Israel should be telling you how drastically the national temperament towards your great nation is shifting. Bible-believing Christians will never stop supporting you, Mr. Netanyahu, but we are not in power in America any longer. We have become the cast out minority.
On Israel. There is so much to say on how Obama feels towards Israel, and this video just about says it all:
On Iran and their nuclear facilities. Perhaps the greatest bit of foreign policy showmanship that Obama has ever displayed has been in the amazing finesse he has exercised in getting Israel to not attack Iran. He was worked relentlessly, tirelessly and around-the-clock to make sure that you didn’t take out the Iranian nuclear facilities with a tactical strike.
The United States has indirectly informed Iran, via two European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against the country’s nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American interests in the Persian Gulf, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday.
What further proof do you need?
Israel must go it alone. Mr. Prime Minister, Israel stands alone as the only nation to ever exist that had a national covenant with God. And that covenant, made in Genesis 12 between God and Abraham, is still in effect today. I opened with letter with the precious promise from God Almighty to awake and arise to defend the nation of Israel.
Forget Obama, and as much as it hurts to say this, forget America as well. We voted yesterday to return to office a man of Muslim origin who hates you and hates Israel with every fiber of his being. You don’t need the support of the American president and you do not need American military might to defend you. You have the God of Abraham, the God of Issac and the God of Jacob to fight for you.
Let me close with this admonition and prophecy from the prophet Joel. I believe that as you ponder on these words from the Holy Scriptures, it will become quite clear to you the path you must take, and without delay. Time is not running out…it is now gone.
Am Yisrael Chai
“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.” Joel 3:9-16
May the Holy God of Israel lead you and guide you, Mr. Prime Minister. We, the millions of bible-believing Christians still left in America and around the world, stand with you and with the nation of Israel till the very end.
Now The End Begins
Stocks took a sharp nosedive across the board Wednesday in the wake of President Barack Obama’s re-election, triggered by worries over the looming “fiscal cliff” and as fears over Europe’s economy reemerged.
The Dow fell below 13,000, while the S&P 500 traded under 1,400 for the first time since early September.
Obama was re-elected president Tuesday night, put over the top by the crucial battleground state of Ohio following the most expensive election in U.S. history.
Meanwhile, ratings agency Fitch said Obama needs to move quickly to avoid the “fiscal cliff” that is threatening the country’s economic recovery, adding that failure to address the issue would likely result in a downgrade in 2013. source – CNBC
The U.S. Treasury quietly warned at the end of a statement issued last Wednesday that it expects the federal government to hit its legal debt limit before the end of this year–which means before the new Congress is seated–and that “extraordinary measures” will be needed before then to keep the government fully funded into the early part of 2013.
On Aug. 2, 2011, President Obama signed a deal he had negotiated with congressional leaders to increase the debt limit of the federal government by $2.4 trillion. But, now, after only 15 months, almost all of that additional borrowing authority has been exhausted.
Although Treasury revealed in its statement on Wednesday that it was likely to hit the debt limit by the end of the year, Treasury Secretary Geithner failed to respond to a letter that Senate Finance Ranking Member Orrin Hatch and Senate Budget Ranking Member Jeff Sessions sent to him on Oct. 15 demanding that he notify them by Nov. 1 what he believes to be the exact date Treasury will hit the debt limit and the date he expects to begin using “extraordinary measures” to avoid it.
“Treasury continues to expect the debt limit to be reached near the end of 2012,” says the tenth paragraph of the “Quarterly Refunding Statement” put out by Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Financial Markets Matthew Rutherford. source – CNS News

All hope for America is lost
It has been well said that with the electing of Muslim Barack Hussein Obama, we put into power the first post-American president, and so we have. Now it seems that after 4 brutal years of his reign, his tearing down of everything good that this country ever stood for, the American people in their rebellion and hatred of God have returned this man to office to finish the evil work which he began in 2008.
America, you are finished. Our days of being any kind of a world power are now officially at an end. We have re-elected a leader which hates Israel, hates freedom, and is against everything that God stands for.
We have been judged for our national sins and been given a ruler, a dark king over us which is the just recompense of our sins.
We will now enter into a prolonged period of wars, famine, of disease, of unrequited misery.
The $16,000,000,000,000.00 debt we carry will only grow until it bursts us at the seams.
Obama now will finish his work of crippling our financial system, adding millions more to welfare and food stamps, and decimating our military.
We will continue slaughtering babies by the millions through abortion, and glorifying the abomination of homosexuality.
A president that allows us to be attacked, repeatedly, and does nothing about it. Soon Sharia Law will be forced on us, and America will be given oven to Islam.
This is why he ran for office, to submit America to Islam.
At home in Chicago, the president claimed victory. “This happened because of you. Thank you” he tweeted to supporters.
Whatever befalls us from this point is our own fault. We chose to spit in God’s face, and in return He has given us the leader we deserve. As God gave Egypt pharaoh to judge them for their sins, so we have been given Barack Hussein Obama, the Muslim King.
Make no mistake, judgement has arrived. And we shall not escape. Israel now will attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. They must attack, they have no choice. Netanyahu knows he has no friend in America, and the window for waiting has now officially closed.
The time in the bible known as the ‘time of Jacob’s trouble’ will soon be upon the whole world. We also know this time as the Great Tribulation. But before that Day happens, there is a way out for those of us who trust in Jesus Christ. It’s called the Rapture, the day where Jesus comes back for all those who trust in Him and look for His return.
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” Titus 2:13
This is our only way out, our only chance of escape. We pray you put your trust and faith in Jesus of Nazareth, and be accounted worthy to escape the Tribulation that is to come upon the whole earth.
Till we meet again…
From Chicago: Here’s a photo of an election judge checking in voters in Barack Obama’s Chicago ward–wearing an Obama baseball cap:
“This photo, taken by a voter this morning at the Ward 4, Precinct 37 polling place (1212 South Plymouth Court, Chicago), shows an election judge checking in voters while wearing an Obama hat,” a source writes. “Chicago’s 4th ward is home to President Barack Obama.”
The voter who took the photo says: “Woman in front of me also given an extra ballot.”
And the voter adds that she has in the past been an election observer abroad. “I had greater confidence votes mattered [in a foreign election in a transitioning country] than I did about my own vote today,” says the voter. source – Weekly Standard
From Pennsylvania: One polling site in Philadelphia apparently had a mural of President Obama emblazoned on the wall directly behind the voting machines. The mural, at a local school being used as a polling site, contained the words “change!” and “hope,” along with a quote from the president.
Republicans were drawing attention to the image Tuesday morning, with one Mitt Romney spokesman tweeting: “Voters in Philly’s Ward 35 are being forced to cast their ballots next to this.”
“It is an absolute disgrace,” said Shannon Royer, deputy secretary for external affairs and elections in Pennsylvania. “Election materials and electioneering inside the polling place are prohibited by state law. This can be interpreted as trying to influence voters inside the polling place. I am told discussions are going on now about covering the mural.”
Pennsylvania election law states “no person within a polling place may electioneer or solicit votes for any political party, political body, or candidate, nor may any unauthorized written or printed materials be posted within the polling place.”
Elsewhere in the city, a representative from the New Black Panther Party was also spotted outside a polling site. The New Black Panthers stirred controversy in 2008 when members appeared outside a polling site, one of them holding a billy club. The representative seen Tuesday morning was not armed.
The flap over the election judges, though, was widespread. Republicans claim they are obtaining a series of court orders to seat the so-called election “inspectors,” and sheriff’s deputies will be available to escort them. source – Fox News
From Detroit: Tensions are high all over the country at the polls today. The Michigan Republican Party is alleging that a poll watcher in Detroit on Tuesday morning was threatened with a gun. According to the Michigan GOP the poll watcher’s 911 call was rejected. Below is a press release from Michigan Republican Party spokesman Matt Frendeway:
This morning, a legally credentialed poll watcher was threatened and intimidated while attempting to perform his legally allowed duties of observing the election process at precinct polling location 289 in Detroit. The poll watcher, a lawyer, was confronted by a voter in line, who demanded the poll watcher produce his credentials, which he did.
However, the voter said that wasn’t good enough and that he had “a badge and a gun” and told the poll watcher get out of the precinct. Rather than allow the situation to escalate, the poll watcher left before the voter produced a badge or brandished a gun. Fearing for his safety, the poll watcher exited and called 911, however the Detroit Police refused to respond to the call – neglecting the fact that a voter alleged to have a ‘badge’ and a ‘gun’ in a precinct, putting other voters at risk.
Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak issued a statement concerning the issue the following statement:“Poll watchers, precinct workers and voters should not be put in danger when performing their duties, our Republic requires free and fair elections.
“I can only hope that this morning’s outlandish, reckless and dangerous behavior, was not part of a coordinated effort by the Democratic Party and therefore, I am calling on Mark Brewer, Democratic Party Chairman, to condemn these threats of violence and pledge to ensuring all election workers, volunteers and citizens remain safe.” source – Washington Times
Obama STILL refuses to call this a terror attack
(Reuters) – Families and victims of a mass shooting in 2009 at the Fort Hood military base in Texas filed a wrongful death suit on Monday against the U.S. government, the accused gunman and the estate of an alleged al Qaeda leader.
The 148 plaintiffs are seeking damages and a ruling that the rampage was a terrorist attack. The finding would clear the way for them to receive benefits.
Major Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, faces 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder for the November 5, 2009, attack on soldiers preparing to deploy to Iraq.
Survivors have expressed frustration about repeated delays over the past three years in bringing Hasan to trial. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces indefinitely postponed Hasan’s court-martial last month pending further review.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia alleges that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and other officials disregarded the safety of soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood. It also alleges that they allowed Hasan to be in a position to open fire on the troops despite knowing he was a “radical extremist.”
“The government seems to have gone out of its way to give the stiff arm to these victims. They have made their lives miserable,” said attorney Neal Shur, who is the lead counsel in the case.
The lead plaintiff is Shawn Manning, who was an Army staff sergeant three years ago and was shot six times.
“The Army has refused to acknowledge this was a terrorist attack, and I have exhausted all other options,” he said.
The other defendants include Hasan, who was shot by police during the attack and paralyzed from the chest down, and the estate of Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born cleric linked to al Qaeda’s Yemen-based wing. He was killed in a U.S. drone strike last year.
An independent review headed by former FBI Director William Webster found that Hasan had exchanged emails with Awlaki.
The lawsuit includes allegations of civil conspiracy, gross negligence, assault and battery, due process violations and intentional misrepresentations. Shur said one reason the suit was filed was that federal authorities had “ignored” $750 million in administrative claims he sought in 2011. source – Reuters
Can YOU imagine 4 more years of Obama?
Michelle Obama took to Twitter on Sunday evening to tout her husband’s first-term achievements. Accompanying a message praising all that President Barack Obama has achieved over the past four years, she implored her followers to “imagine what he can do in twice that time.”
Along with her message was a link to a campaign video that, in detail, highlights the president’s first-term actions. The video, entitled, “A Very Quick Look at President Obama’s First Term,” features the fast-talking, rapid speech deliverer John Moschitta, Jr. (a well-known spokesperson). Throughout the ad, Moschitta touts Obama, mentioning health care, credit card and student loan reform, the auto bailout and a plethora of other policy moves.
While another Obama term will certainly appeal to progressives who would like, more than anything, to see another four years of left-leaning policies, conservatives abhor the thought (and are conversely horrified by the prospect of four more years of left-of-center governance).
Advertising the clip, the First Lady’s Tweet reads, “If this is what the President can do in 4 years, imagine what he can do in twice the time.”
In the video, Moschitta mirror’s Michelle Obama’s claim, saying, “If this is what this guy can do in four years, imagine what he can do in twice the time.” source- The Blaze
