"As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. For as you in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. For God has concluded them all in unbelief, that He might have mercy upon all." Romans 11:28-32. Read the entire chapter of Romans 11 for the Apostle Paul's full development of this idea, which is Scripture's explanation why the Jews often, bizarrely, seem to oppose their own best interests. The true Christian shows mercy to the Jewish people in their unbelief and rejection of Christ, knowing that God will eventually fulfill all His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob- and David, including establishing them in their own land. The fake Christian (those who practice empty religion without the love of God) feel they are doing God a service by persecuting and oppressing Jews.
"And the God of Israel is always watching, even if those who attack the Jews have convinced themselves that He will turn a blind eye." amen, Ben Shapiro From Pharoah, to Haman, to Hitler, to Saddam Hussein (and multitudes too numerous to mention in between) the enemies of the Jews (the ones who hate them, malign them, and want to annihilate them) are currently batting approximately zero for 20 million... God's promise to Abraham has never been revoked: "He who blesses you I will bless; he who curses you I will curse" (Genesis 12:3-4). Even Jesus Christ Himself said, "Salvation is of the Jews". Those who take up against Israel (the land God gave to Abraham and his seed forever) or against the Jew are going to end up on the 'losing end' of the equation. Count on it.
In 1976, Hedrick Smith, former NY Times correspondent to Russia, published a fascinating book called "The Russians", based upon his years living and working as a correspondent in the Soviet Union. Reading Mr.Bowyer's account of how Americans are increasingly 'gaming the system' to avoid the over-reach of government and its ever-increasing regulations reminded me strongly of Smith's account of life for the average Russian under a totalitarian Communist regime. The ENTIRE life of the average Russian under communism was spent 'gaming the system' to avoid or mitigate the State's intrusion into their lives. Is this country headed the same direction?

Fortunately, Samson's story didn't end at the mill. Samson's hair grew again (having given Samson a haircut once, the Philistines were very remiss in not keeping Samson's head clean-shaven). Samson cried out to his God one more time, and he wreaked more devastation against the Philistines in his death than in his lifetime. Samson, a beautiful example of repentance and 2nd (or last) chances. Samson is mentioned in the Hebrews Chapter 11 'faith hall of fame'.

There is something just plain wrong with Americans having to sign a petition to try to persuade a President of the United States to defend the borders of the United States. Wasn't that part of Obama's oath of office when he took office (defend the Constitution and the United States) ??? And rather than signing meaningless 'petitions' (as if Obama is really going to 'give a flip' about a petition), or filing joke lawsuits that will get lost in the mists of time, why isn't the GOP calling for this President's IMPEACHMENT?

To refuse to do one's lawful duty for fear of what people may say or think, or to refuse to do one's ethical and moral duty for fear another party will not 'follow thru' and do their duty is both shameful and cowardly.

Amen, Bill Tatro. You nailed it. The ONLY moral and ethical action available for the GOP House of Representitives to take against the lawless, arrogant Constitution-despising POTUS this country now has in office is to IMPEACH him. Anything less than the Impeachment of Obama ('petitions', meaningless 'lawsuits') is a joke against the GOP, another failure and 'backdown' on the part of the GOP, and is, itself, a dereliction of duty. Refusing to do the right thing because the Senate under Reid WON'T (do the right thing) does not excuse the GOP, or 'get them off the hook', for failing to do their duty.

The GOP is an empty sham that has compliantly gone along for Obama's mad, merry ride. Making pious, ineffectual noises of protestation and making empty gestures such as petitions and meaningless law suits is all the GOP has to 'pony up'. Utter sham.
