•Therefore a wise lord cannot, nor ought he to, keep faith when such observance may be turned against him, and when the reasons that caused him to pledge it exist no longer. If men were entirely good this precept would not hold, but because they are bad, and will not keep faith with you, you too are not bound to observe it with them. •But it is necessary to know well how to disguise this characteristic, and to be a great pretender and dissembler; and men are so simple, and so subject to present necessities, that he who seeks to deceive will always find someone who will allow himself to be deceived. •Therefore it is unnecessary for a prince to have all the good qualities I have enumerated, but it is very necessary to appear to have them. And I shall dare to say this also, that to have them and always to observe them is injurious, and that to appear to have them is useful; to appear merciful, faithful, humane, religious, upright, and to be so, but with a mind so framed that should you require not to be so, you may be able and know how to change to the opposite. •For this reason a prince ought to take care that he never let anything slip from his lips that is not replete with the above-named five qualities, that he may appear to him who sees and hears him altogether merciful, faithful, humane, upright, and religious. There is nothing more necessary to appear to have than this last quality, inasmuch as men judge generally more by the eye than by the hand, because it belongs to everybody to see you, to few to come in touch with you. Everyone sees what you appear to be, few really know what you are, and those few dare not oppose themselves to the opinion of the many, who have the majesty of the state to defend them; and in the actions of all men, and especially of princes, which it is not prudent to challenge, one judges by the result.
Someone once said that a nation deserves the leaders it chooses. The Bible tells us that the nation of Persia (Modern Day Iran) will rise on the scene in the last days. This couldn’t have happened with a strong Iraq state. This President is going to assist Iran in obtaining Nuclear weapons…the nation of Iran will not rise as an economic power but rather a military power in that they will have a nuclear weapon. All of the things that the Bible speaks of are falling into place. The world is turning on Israel with the United States taking the lead. Obama hates Jews and hates this country. He said in one of his books, and correct me if I’m wrong; he said that if the tides should turn against the Muslims, he will stand with them. The man stands up at a Prayer breakfast and goes back to the Crusades to shame Christianity??? He uses language that the Jihadist have been using for centuries…he has been sending signals to the Muslim world as to who he really is since 2008. In 2009, he places Jesus on the same level as Muhammad and yet he calls himself a Christian. No born again Christian would make such a statement. His goal is to diminish America so that the Muslim terrorist can have a change to regain strength. He is trying to undue everything that G. Bush did to subdue those terrorist. Obama wants them to gain strength while he pretends to want to stop them. Obama is taking advice from Machiavelli’s the Prince.
For failure to talk about the news, he has become the news. SMH
Where are all the Jews in the Dem Party, Hollywood, Corporate America...why are they not screaming at these Dems who have shown their true colors. I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you.... That still a TRUE STATEMENT....

I think American should boycott Hollywood....or perhaps any movie made by an anti-American Hollywood actor or actress. That'll teach them.

Makes you wonder what G. Sorross and Obama talked about all those times he visited the White House.
Charlie Hebdo Editor to NBC: When You Blur Out Our Cover, You 'Blur Out Democracy' Uhhhhhh….and that means what to NBC? I mean, they do support the Marxist In-Chief….
@Lepanto, Jesus said that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. How can Satan cast out satan? People wonder why the liberal left sides with the Muslim terrorist....the answer is, if Satan cast out Satan, then his kingdom will not stand.
I was trying to give Dish space to REPENT, but it seems that they are going to continue to be STIFF NECKED and REBELLIOUS...therefore, I'm canceling my contract.
