What kind of appointments does Barack Obama make?



PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:

The United States is apparently not a major player in world affairs during the end-times. What will happen to our country in the next few years that will remove us from our present role as the world's only superpower? One major factor is the choice of the American people of its leaders, and the appointment by those leaders of key positions. Those leaders could nudge us toward socialism and adoption of a one-world government structure. This could set the scene for a the despotic antichrist world ruler.

Hagel faces barrage of criticism during tense confirmation hearing

Jan. 31, 2013 - Republican Senators posed stiff questions to Defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel during confirmation hearings. They asked about his past positions on Israel, Iran, and Iraq.
He had several sparring partners throughout the day, but was questioned perhaps most aggressively by fellow Vietnam War veteran Sen. John McCain and freshman Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, both Republicans.
Cruz played two tapes from appearances on Al Jazeera. In one, a caller accused Israel of war crimes and Hagel did not challenge him. In another clip he appeared to agree that America is "the world's bully."

Obama nominates Hagel as secretary of defense

Jan. 8, 2013 - President Obama has nominated Chuck Hagel, the Republican former Nebraska senator, to serve as Secretary Defense. There is growing criticism about Hagel's positions on Israel and Iran. In a recent statement he said his record has been distorted, and he has shown “unequivocal, total support for Israel” and an endorsement of tough international economic sanctions against Iran.

Critics point to Hagel's reference to supporters of Israel as an intimidating "Jewish lobby" on Capitol Hill. He also opposed Iran sanctions and was unwilling to sign letters that called on the EU to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) said it is doubtful that Hagel can be trusted to "manage the special relationship the United States shares with our greatest Middle East ally.” He said,

“Hagel’s nomination telegraphs weakness in the Middle East and defeatism in Afghanistan, where our Afghan partners will surely be concerned, and our Taliban and Iranian adversaries will surely be emboldened.”
