George W in 1999: my country is going to need me

I rescued this book from the trash yesterday, ‘The Faith of George W. Bush”. Never knew that George W. Bush had the gift of prophecy. Or so this book from 2003 reckons … I feel like God wants me to run for president. I can’t explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen, and, at that time, my country is going to need me. I know it won’t be easy, on me or my family, but God wants me to do it. In fact, I really don’t want to run. My

David Brody Makes Me Cynical for the Future of this Country

David begins by saying, We are proud to be an American today. Because, dang it, nothing saying America like killin’. But, I digress (and I have to wonder if killing the man who ordered the deaths of thousands upon thousands is really justice)… Brody goes on to say, I know President Obama understands that getting Bin Laden doesn’t mean an end to the war on terrorism but how about a smile? How about showing a little joy? How about a word or two saying something about how this is no doubt a happy or joyous occasion for Americans? We

Condemned: The Faith of President Obama

When I was in Indianapolis this weekend, I had the chance to visit the famed Half-Priced Books store. I visited two different locations, and in each location, I ran across this same scene. One person would pick the book up and show to it their shopping partner (a husband and wife, a father and a daughter). The partner would make some snide remake. The husband showed the wife and she wanted to take it, stomp on it, burn it and alluded to the vileness of the man upon whom the book was based. The father and daughter’s scene was

What Does It Mean To Be Pro-Life?

I’ve often wondered that myself. This week, the former President will accept an award for his advancement of pro-life causes, and yet, there is something no right about that. John Gehring takes a look as Bush’s record and asks the same question.

This is a review found in the NY Times, but I thought it fit with the book review this week:

Was Bush on a mission from God?

From Here: TheStar.com – World – Was Bush on a mission from God? WASHINGTON–George W. Bush comes to Toronto today bedevilled by fresh questions about whether the former U.S. president felt the hand of God driving his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bush, a born-again Christian since age 40, arrives for today’s paid speaking engagement at Metro Toronto Convention Centre with fellow former president Bill Clinton amid a series of stranger-than-fiction disclosures, one of which suggests that apocalyptic fervour may have held sway within the walls of his White House. Bush, who turns 63 in July and was 54

Which Prophecies Will Be Fulfilled Tuesday, January 20th?

I found this blog post from a few days ago. Thought it was interesting to see exactly what happened and wonder if people will now forgo their false prophets. –>  Benny Hinn is reported to have prophesied in June or July of 2000 that George Bush would be the final U.S. President. –>  Scott Walkington, in a NDE experience, stated that Bush would be compelled to remain in office when something stops the inauguration and America is nuked. He stated the rapture would occur while Bush was in office. –>  A young woman named Julie had a dream of
