THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTED MONDAY THAT FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA RELEASED $221 MILLION IN U.S. FUNDING FOR THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY ON THE MORNING OF FRIDAY, JANUARY 20 — JUST HOURS BEFORE HE WAS TO LEAVE OFFICE.
Obama is gone and one poignant image from the day of Trumps inauguration was watching Barak and Michelle leaving Washington in a helicopter.
However, the carnage that he has left after 8 years in office is ongoing and won’t be reversed in a day, a week or a month.
Another paring shot from The outgoing president was giving the Palestinians 221 million dollars. Nice going Barak. Another slap in the face for Israel. Another executive pronouncement that was essentially and end-run around a Republican controlled congress. The emperor strikes again!
So why do I bring this up? Why is it important. It’s important because is shows Obama’s true intentions. It demonstrates, where his allegiances lie. It’s also a sneaky, last-minute political end-run that reeks of imperial authority.
Of course the press isn’t interested in this. As usual they give it a pass and don’t print a word about it. Our media needs a complete overhaul!
Obama made a really bad deal with the Iranians and essentially gave them what amounts to ransom money to the tune of millions of TAX-PAYERS hard earned dollars. In spite of Israel’s Netanyahu proclaiming at the United Nations that this was a very bad deal and essentially begging Obama not to do it. But Obama did it anyway.
Obama’s handing out money without congressional approval is the kind of oligarchy-type actions that I think most Americans are tired of and frankly disgusted with.
In what amounted to a scathing indictment of the Washington political class, Trump proclaimed that America is going to be handed back to the American people. Bully for The Donald!
So we need to start with term limits and cut out the life-time payouts to members of congress even after they’ve left office.
In closing todays post. Obama’s actions speak louder than any political double-speak he could say. He gave the Palestinians a lot of money and snubbed Israel yet again. I’m delighted he’s gone and look forward to Trump’s support of Israel.
I have a BIG announcement later today!

I gave my back to those who strike,
and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard;
I hid not my face
from disgrace and spitting. Is 50: 6
I’ve always been a big fan of Bible Prophecy. I was drawn to the importance of prophetic scriptures some 36 years ago, when I gave my life to Jesus. When I became born from above.
This passage from Isaiah gives us a very clear picture of what Messiah will endure. It’s prophetic implications are staggering and the passage reveals this with great specificity.
In this passage we see three statements the first being: I gave my back to those who strike.
Think about the brutal, barbaric scourging Jesus went through at the hands of the Romans. I’m reminded of Gibson’s Passion of the Christ. We see Jesus tied to the whipping post. His back is arched and on either side stands a Roman soldier with a cruel tool of punishment, the Roman Flagrum.
This tool of torture had three leather-strands attached to a short, wooden handle. On the ends of the leather cords were shards of glass or metal. The Roman soldier would land it on the victim and then, with a flick of his wrist, tear the skin open.
Jesus was left a bloody mess at the end of the scourging. In fact, had a few more lashes been given He would have died on the whipping post.
Another interesting fact is that The Shroud of Turin shows the marks of the whipping and of the Roman Flagrum.
The next part of the prophecy tells us the beard was plucked from the face. Again, this is incredibly painful and excruciating. This is what Jesus endured for the sins of all mankind.
This was the work of Satan who wanted to kill Jesus from the moment he discovered He was Messiah. However, as Jesus told His disciples: No man takes my life, I offer it freely.
The final prophecy tells us this: I hid not my face
from disgrace and spitting.
When Jesus was brought before the Sanhedrin he was spit upon and His face slapped by the servant of the High Priest. Then again, the Romans hit him and mocked him as the continued their torture.
Finally, Jesus was crucified and with His death fulfilled many other prophetic scriptures.
The Bible tells us: we are healed by HIS stripes.
The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from our sins.
Jesus is the Prince of Peace. He laid His life down willingly to set us free from the bondage of sin, death and our own depravity.
He loves us/you and knows you better than you know yourself.
Come to him today. He will set you free.
From your sins, from the bondage that you may be in.
Confess Him as Lord and Savior ask Him into your heart today. Today is the day of salvation.

A Christmas Cantata
L. A. Marzulli
This was written in the fall of 1995 and was first performed at Malibu Presbyterian Church. In Bethlehem was also performed at the Malibu Vineyard, The Church of the Nazarene, and Church of the Living Christ. It is a musical production taken straight from the Gospel account of Luke.
Years later I was finally able to get the Cantata recorded in my studio. Thanks to all who made this possible as you are listening to hundreds of hours of work by many wonderful people. It has some great moments and it is my gift to all of you… Send the link to your loved ones and friends.
The King was born, lowly in a stable, and laid in a manger. Later he would die horribly on Calvary. We celebrate His Virgin Birth but look to His sacrifice by which all men and women can be reconciled with God.
