Congressional Health Care


Congressional-Health-Care

What did you say Mr. Commissioner?


Let me get this straight. NBA’s Jason Colins decides to let the world know that he has chosen the homosexual lifestyle ( didn’t care to know that at all ) and the NFL Commissioner has the right to take away all the NFL’s coaches and players First Amendment rights? Typical of the Liberal and Progressive Social Engineer wacky Left caring more about Jason’s feelings than shoving his chosen lifestyle down our throats. Are we the one’s that purchase those obnoxiously outrageous, overpriced ticket prices to see their games? And they don’t care what I think?

Pentagon Recruits Anti-Christian Extremist To Help Craft Tolerance Policy

http://lastresistance.com/2011/pentagon-recruits-anti-christian-extremist-to-help-craft-tolerance-policy/

Over the years, I have seen much of what makes people tick in regard to political leanings. I have discovered that the smarter someone is, the easier it is to have a rational conversation with them. As the curve goes down, and you begin to deal with less intelligent people, rational conversation becomes more difficult. But more than intelligence, passion plays a large role in whether or not a person is able to convey their beliefs without needless aggression and posturing. I have come across people who are so passionate; they need to believe in something so badly; that they have lost any ability to deal with opposing views in a calm and rational manner. It just so happens that those who have this fiery, directionless passion often tend to come from the Left of the aisle.

The Pentagon, under the Obama administration, is developing new policies regarding religious tolerance in the military. They could have devised a plan that would really make a difference; help eliminate needless bigotry and unpleasantness from the military. They could have taken a reasoned and balanced approach; bringing in multiple people with opposing views, to really reach an understanding as to how they should proceed. Of course, they did not do that. Instead, they brought in a man named Mikey Weinstein.

Mikey Weinstein is the kind of man someone like me would find insufferable; the kind of man with such aggressive passion that he is unpleasant to be around. That’s not necessarily a terrible thing–if you can take it–but Mikey’s passion is very focused; Mikey’s passion is anti-Christian propaganda.

On April 16th, in an article written for The Huffington Post, Mikey Weinstein says some pretty incredible things. He takes a machete to Christians and Christianity in general; rather happily slicing his way through the Christian faith and those who practice it. The following is an excerpt. It’s a bit long, but worth the read:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, let me tell you of monsters and monstrous wrongs. And let me tell you what these bloody monsters thrive on…I founded the…Military Religious Freedom Foundation to do one thing: fight those monsters who would tear down the Constitutionally-mandated wall separating church and state in the technologically most lethal entity ever created by humankind, the U.S. military…Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces…These days, when ANYone attempts to bravely stand up against virulent religious oppression, these monstrosities cry out alligator tears in overflowing torrents and scream that it is, in fact, THEY who are the dispossessed, bereft and oppressed. C’mon, really, you pitiable unconstitutional carpetbaggers? … Please, I beseech you! Let us call these ignoble actions what they are: the senseless and cowardly squallings of human monsters…Queasy with the bright and promising lights of the cultural realities of the present day, those evil, fundamentalist Christian creatures and their spiritual heirs have taken refuge behind flimsy, well-worn, gauze-like euphemistic facades such as ‘family values’ and ‘religious liberty.’”

Mikey goes on to compare Christians with 60′s era racists, and rip apart Christianity in the military and in general. He even suggests that chaplains who proselytize are ”treasonous,” and should be punished. Finally, he calls Christian ministry in the military “spiritual rape;” comparing it to physical, sexual assault.

This is the man that the Pentagon has brought in to consult on religious tolerance in the military?! This man is, himself, a hateful, vile creature–to use Weinstein’s own vernacular. His words are beyond basic intolerance; they are just plain wicked.

I wonder how a man such as he came about. What is the origin of his extraordinary hate? It seems implausible that a human being could be capable of such hate toward Christianity. But if you look back in history, there have been many just like him: men whose hatred drove them into darkness; whose hatred was the only thing on which they could live and thrive. History repeats itself.

Under the Obama administration, the Pentagon is seeking Mikey Weinstein’s assistance in crafting religious tolerance policy. That’s like asking Adolf Hitler to help craft policy on Jewish tolerance. It’s backwards, and disgusting.

Mikey Weinstein is passion personified. With that level of passion, the ability to reason; to formulate sound arguments, becomes greatly diminished. What is driving his passion and aggression? What makes him so hateful? We may never know.

Regardless, this modern Nero, with his reckless aggression towards Christians, is helping to create policy on how to deal with Christianity in the military. With so many Christians currently serving, this frightens me.

 

“Honor Thy Father and Mother” isn’t a suggestion


‘Honor Thy Father and Mother’: Ignore at Your Peril

john-potterI know a lot of theology teachers might argue with me over what the greatest commandment is in the list of ten big ones. To me it always seemed that the biggest one was “Honor Thy Father and Mother”. The other rules God set for us stemmed from that one simple five word bit of divine instruction. Not difficult to understand and not hard to follow.

These days we have certain types of people who not only ignore that commandment but they go out of their way to flaunt that commandment. Too many of our seniors are forgotten, thrown into nursing homes by their selfish boomer children who think they know more than their parents; and because of the privilege’s their parents hard work afforded them are better than their parents.

Today I was introduced to a woman named Janice Cotrill who is evicting her 91 year old father from the home he has lived in with her mother for 54 years. John Potter is a World War II veteran and hero. He has lived in the village of Zaleski ,Ohio his entire life, except for the years he spent in the military in World War II, fighting against the Japanese at Attu in the Aleutian Islands. I am speechless with rage. Here is a link to the story:; and another link.

I think part of my anger towards Ms. Cotrill and her husband is the fact my own father and mother saw their last years sad and lonely and dependent. In fact, it nearly went the same way as Mr. Potter’s life has gone. When it is your own parents and there is nothing you personally can do to help it is the most awful thing to deal with personally. At the time the bad happened to my parents, I was in college and had no money, no personal power to help them. It is funny but it is always that way. The person who cares most about their parents is the one who has the least amount of personal power or money to help them when they need help.

In looking back, I wish I had made different decisions but I know that regrets are for sad sacks. The past should never hold us back but in the case of one’s parents, when they did everything for you, to see older siblings treating them so badly, it is hard not to look back with some regret. The words “I wish I had” run rampant through one’s mind like an old vinyl record skipping. And yet there are those people you grew up with who have no concerns about what they do to their parents. One is introduced to resentments that were never apparent before, angers and envy that were never out in the open.

It is quite disturbing to think there are people out there who are this amoral. Yes, evicting one’s parents from their home of 54 years is amoral. Not allowing a father to see his autistic son is amoral. Instead of spending quality time with a father who is a hero, whom one can learn so much from, this woman and her husband are throwing him out onto the street.

The stories of a father of 91, who has seen so much, done so much could become family lore. It’s the stuff legends are made of. These are the stories children coming after can hear and live up to. Think about the loss of that alone. It is horrifying in a way to think so much can be tossed casually aside like this.

When one throws their parents away like so much trash one throws oneself away with them. So much of a human being’s identity and self are given to them by their parents, through DNA, through being raised and the life’s lessons parents teach their children. You can see in the empty, unhappy lives these amoral creatures live. They live for the moment, materialistic not only in their greed for things and power but a kind of spiritual materialism that causes them to drift even further from themselves. They are quite literally dead inside.

They search continually for a self they would never recognize because they can’t see themselves anymore. Or they know too well who stares back at them from the mirror in the morning and they cannot stand that person. One could feel some pity for these people who abandoned the values and morals they were raised to believe in; but when one reaches a certain age one realizes that there are some people who suck the very soul from everyone around them, and trying to help them is the ultimate expression of futility. One could do better by making life easier for the elderly, reaching out to those that could share with them the wisdom they accumulated over the decades and maybe providing to an elderly veteran and his wife a family they no longer really have.

I want to tell this woman, “That is your Dad. He’s a decorated veteran. Instead of behaving so viciously why not embrace the limited time with your Dad and hear his stories, do your daughter’s duty and honor him? This is the house you grew up in. Think of the memories? Think of times your parents were there for you? Doesn’t any of that mean anything?”

It is funny but in looking back at some of the things I have seen in my own past I realize that those questions would be meaningless to certain people because the idea of honoring ones parents means nothing to them.

We know that people ultimately pay the price for their hubris. It might be in overwhelming guilt for their cruelty with which they have treated their parents. It might be in the hereafter. But people who have committed heinous sins against people they should love and respect do find justice. That is the cold unvarnished truth.

What we are witnessing in this sad story is a Greek Tragedy played out in 2013 USA. It has all the hubris, greed, and like a Greek Tragedy, it will end badly. Not just for Mr. Potter. It will end worse for his daughter and she’s too wrapped up in herself and what she wants to realize that. I feel no pity for her and her husband. What comes ’round goes ’round.

I do feel a terrible sadness that her father, a WWII hero who is sick, is being treated like a criminal by his daughter. The only criminal I can identify here is Ms. Cotrill. “Honor Thy Father and Mother” isn’t a suggestion, as the saying goes, and one would do one a big favor by abiding by that five word commandment.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil . . .” – Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)

How to Take Back the Country, Step One. . .

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil . . . – Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)

Four is five, and five is four.

In my column, The Line, I explained the underlying core issue dividing our country and why it’s time to draw the line. If you’ve stepped across and joined me on this side of the line, welcome to the breed of Lt. Col. Travis. This column will lay out one of the greatest weapons we can use to win the ideological war. This article is a little lengthy and requires some concentration, but if you cozy up with a drink and some time, you’ll be glad you did.

A couple of weeks ago I was talking with a good friend about the state of the country. He quoted Isaiah 5:20 and said, “I always wondered how a person could call ‘evil good, and good evil,’ but it’s obvious, it’s happening now.” He was right. It’s happening now, and we’re allowing it.

The power of words is remarkable. As a former stage hypnotist, current speechwriter, and law student I well understand the effect certain words have on the mind. One or two words can change the entire perception of a sentence, and therefore, a thought.

This is what happened to our country. Over the years, one or two words, here and there, created a dramatic shift in the populous toward the liberal agenda. Ironically, no one has brought it to light. From my expertise in words, I believe that if conservative pundits and leaders will adopt the tactic that I explain below, and aggressively use it in their media interactions, we will see the populous shift back to supporting constitutional principles.

First, how it’s happening.

To understand how society has been manipulated by words, let’s take a look at the infamous math riddle George Orwell made famous. In his book, 1984, Orwell explained the slogan “2+2 = 5” as a dogma that the Party presented as truth. The reason for this was because the actual fact that two and two equaled four was politically inexpedient. Since the logic explaining why 2+2 = 5 is bent, the conclusion stood only because the Party said so. The result was indubitable deference to the Party: whatever it said, was the controlled truth.

The heresy of heresies was common sense. And what was terrifying was not that they would kill you for thinking otherwise, but that they might be right. For, after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable—what then?” – George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

Interestingly, 2+2 can, through theory, mathematically equal 5. This gives a spooky awe to Orwell’s proposition. I’ve seen several different theorems that explain how two and two can make five but, in my opinion, two are especially intriguing. The trickiest theorem essentially states that upon starting with the truthful proposition that 20 = 20 (x = x), we can follow a logical sequence of “if thens” to finally prove that 4 = 5 (x = y).

Read the following slowly and do the math with me. Understanding this will prove both necessary and important when I explain how the left has used the tactic.

Instead of going through the full theorem, I’ll sum it up this way. To deduce from 20 = 20 that 4 = 5, you must use square roots. If one takes the equation 4 – 4.5, solves it and then squares it (-.5 x -.5) you’ll get .25; which is the exact same answer as 5 – 4.5 solved and squared (.5 x .5 = .25). So, if the square of the first equation, 4 – 4.5, equals the square of the second, 5 – 4.5, then the two equations are equal to each other. If they equal each other, then we may skip squaring each side and just work with their original forms. So, we have 4 – 4.5 = 5 – 4.5. We then solve each side to get -.5 = .5. Now add 4.5 to each side and, bam! The truth that 20 = 20 has now been deduced to show that it is the exact same as 4 = 5 (or 2+2 = 5) (new truth).

Of course, the presentation is much more convoluted than that, but those who are brushed up will spot the flaw. The problem is that, while the squaring the two equations creates the same result (.25 = .25), a negative number is not the same as a positive number. In other words, -.5 is not the same as .5, even though they both square up to equal .25. It’s all in the “if then” presentation. It’s a matter of the conclusion versus logic.

The second theorem goes through similar steps, but in the end its flaw is that it requires dividing by 0. The novice mathematician doing mental math performs the function despite the error and arrives at the controlled conclusion. The problem is that it’s mathematically impossible to divide any number by zero.

Now, welcome back. So, what does all this fuzzy math have to do with the left’s words? Well, if 4 can be 5, then of course it’s possible for good to be evil, and evil to be good. Fuzzy math teaches us “doublespeak.”

Although the term “doublespeak” is not explicitly used in 1984, most attribute its origins to George Orwell. The basic concept is to deliberately disguise, distort, or reverse the meaning of words. In mathematical terms, the target word (x) is assigned a new definition (y). But the definition has a flaw (like dividing by zero or presenting a negative to be equal to a positive). However, with the right presentment, the flaw can be overlooked and I can make good become evil and visa versa. Soon enough the majority of the population believes the new truth, even those on the right.

Let’s turn to some examples. Since the Gosnell trial hasn’t been respectively covered, let’s use that topic.

Somewhere along the line, we accepted the labels of “pro-choice” and “pro-life.” How ridiculous. Where is the word “abortion”? After all, that is the beginning point (20 = 20). The left justifies their it by claiming their label means they support “a woman’s right to choose.” Choose what exactly? To own an AR-15? To support cutting entitlements and scaling back government? Ending affirmative action? Freeing the market from burdensome regulations? Supporting traditional marriage as the only definition of marriage? No, the left vilifies all of these. They support a woman’s choice to have an abortion. Period. So, let’s call it what it is. They are not “pro-choice,” they are “pro-abortion.”

Start saying “pro-abortion” on a regular basis and watch what happens! Since the word “abortion” doesn’t feel very good, I suspect you will see an immediate back-pedal. “No, no, no. We aren’t ‘pro-abortion,’ we just support a woman’s right to choose, for herself, to have an abortion.” Illogical. The pro-abortionist tries to equate positives and negatives. One cannot support a person’s right to choose an abortion without necessarily supporting the practice itself. Their argument is the same as me supporting a woman’s choice to kill her neighbor. “I’m not ‘pro-neighbor-killing myself, but I support a woman’s choice to do it.”

Oh, but neighbor killing isn’t the same as abortion because the neighbor is alive? Now we’re dividing by zero. Is the living cell in the womb not just as alive as the living cell in the neighbor?

Oh? The cell is alive, but the fetus isn’t viable? Nonsense. The 6-moth old baby, the 6-day old newborn, and even the 6-year old child are just as dependent on their mother for survival as the 6-day old zygote.

And deeper we go, exposing how pro-abortionists divide by zero to make abortion equal “supporting a woman’s choice.” This is how four has become five . . . how evil has become good. Words and their presentation.

No. “Pro-choice” is pro-abortion. And pro-abortion is pro-dismembering fetuses. Hmmmm, maybe we should start using the latter term?

Feel the power of words? And that is just one example.

Try “affirmative action.” Break down its logic and you get the actual fact: race preference or race favoring. (Believe me, I’ve studied the line of affirmative action cases. You’d be amazed at the preference systems colleges have tried to give non-Caucasians.)

“Gun control” is doublespeak for gun taking through regulation. The faulty premise here is that the left claims “gun control” bills do not come out and call for an actual gun confiscation. This is their presentation: “No one is taking away your guns.” But they mask the negative integer. The regulations are actually so strict that it becomes nearly impossible to obtain or keep your guns and ammo. It is, at the very core, confiscation via regulation. (Regulatory takings are unconstitutional under Supreme Court case law. See also my column, The Emporer’s Pen and the Extent of His Power for more on this.)

“Entitlements” is doublespeak for dependence.

“An act of terror” is doublespeak for terrorist attack, or more bluntly, and as is the case in most situations, Islamic terrorist attack.

“Assault rifle.” Laughable. I would argue that every rifle can “assault,” since that word is only a noun and never an adjective. This is doublespeak for semi-automatic rifle.

And of course, “political correctness” is doublespeak for, well, doublespeak.

The list goes on, but the point is this, the left has successfully made evil good by using faulty premises and great presentation. The left is controlling the narrative because the right has rolled over and accepted doublespeak simply because the left has said so. Sadly, I can think of only one political leader who has ever challenged the flaw on the air. Everyone else is deathly afraid of being called “racist,” “sexist,” or whatever (do we need to break down the logic on those words too?).

It’s time to fight back with words.

I call on every patriot, pundit, and conservative who has a voice and a far-reaching medium to quit accepting the left’s manipulative doublespeak and start using truthspeak. Remember, one or two words can change the entire perception of a sentence, and therefore, a thought. Truthspeak resets the public’s perception and thoughts back to the original truth. This is why the left tries to eviscerate leaders like Allen West. Truthspeak is the left’s primary enemy, and he’s the only one I can think of off the top of my head who publicly speaks it.

Therefore, my fellow Americans, let us declare in our dialogues and monologues, our posts and our tweets, speeches and interviews that two and two do not equal five simply because it feels better to say. Good feelings were never the predicate of truth. Two and two make four, but only for as long as we guard its underlying logic. No more passive defensiveness. Go on the offensive! A Spade is not an upside down heart, so why accept the flaw and call it one? Call a spade a spade! Flood their minds with truth and watch the public support for the left buckle and fall.

Mark. My. Words.

That choice is yours to make. That choice—the dedication to one’s highest potential—is made by accepting the fact that the noblest act you have ever performed is the act of your mind in the process of grasping that two and two make four.” – John Galt

This is the problem with progressivism. It is barren.


America’s Empty Progressive Culture

By / http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/2013/04/americas-empty-progressive-culture/

empyt headWe enjoy looking back to a time when generations of men were willing to fight and die for the things of value in this world, especially today.  Many of those men were mere teens when they took up their causes.  When Alexander Hamilton was around 19 years old, he wrote “The Farmer Refuted,” a lively response to the loyalist writings of Samuel Seabury in 1775.  Hamilton was not only a rowdy and confident teen, he knew well the ideas that this nation would soon be founded upon and that he would help to define:

Hence, also, the origin of all civil government, justly established, must be a voluntary compact between the rulers and the ruled, and must be liable to such limitations as are necessary for the security of the absolute rights of the latter; for what original title can any man, or set of men, have to govern others, except their own consent? To usurp dominion over a people in their own despite, or to grasp at a more extensive power than they are willing to intrust, is to violate that law of nature which gives every man a right to his personal liberty, and can therefore confer no obligation to obedience.

Hamilton also suggests that Seabury become more acquainted with the likes of Grotius, Puffendorf, Locke, Montesquieu, and Burlemaqui.  While I imagine some American youth are exposed to Locke and Montesquieu in the most empty fashion possible, they would be hard pressed to truly understand how important their ideas are.

Public school systems have dumbed down philosophy, history and all of the humanities which the founders of this nation studied extensively.  The very fabric of this nation was based on classical philosophical ideas.  Is there any way a student can be expected to understand their Second Amendment rights when they have no clue what liberty is or why it is worth fighting for?  They have studied culture relatively and are never asked to compare our republic to other nations (because of course, that might offend someone).

In George Washington’s Farewell Address of 1796, he warned that “reason and experience forbid us to expect that popular morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles.”  To apply this to today’s world, it might be better to say a “global morality.”  This is what many children are being taught.  There is a “global” way of thinking that washes American culture in particular of its values and morality.  Even some modern conservatives shrink away from attempting to argue the value of religion for our nation and its people.

And what has been the happy result of this progressive mission to destroy our culture?  Suicide rates amongst teens and young adults have been higher than at any other recorded point in history.  Young men have the highest rates and this is not surprising.  Liberal culture has failed them.  It has confused the roles they should aim for, leaving them empty, void of tradition, values, or morality.

For the youth fortunate enough to get a “great” education, they are likely to become educated dumb people with no convictions on anything.  Obama’s 2007 campaign was powerful amongst youth for one reason, they had absolutely no faith in anything else.  American youth culture has grown to reflect the empty things on television and in public school curricula.  Bars are filled with young adults whose best attempt at life is to model something they hear in a Lady Gaga song.   Somehow, getting embarrassingly drunk or yelling obscenities to the world is a defining moment in their lives.  They resent anyone who tries to tell them about deeper things in life, philosophy, religion, anything that seeks to answer the questions that plagued them.  Somehow they know it all without understanding a thing.

This is the problem with progressivism.  It is barren.  Barack Obama caught youth attention because his media image sold him as hope, the Messiah come to earth; and needing something to link them to their sorry existence, to have a reason to experience joy or to feel tears on their cheek, they praised him.  Now that many of them have returned to their empty feelings, they still praise him out of the memory of having something to believe in.

Though it seems like a devastating picture, the culture war is still going.  In the book, “The Conservative Mind,” Russell Kirk described a few ways Conservatives or any loyal American can work to hold back the damaging emptiness of progressive culture:

  1. Reaffirm the truth that lies in tradition, i.e. stop saying morality and tradition do not matter.  That is the progressive game.  He who cares the most wins.  If you feel religion is pointless to the conversation, then you leave space for progressive “values” to fill in the gaps.
  2. Defend the classes and regions where tradition is still a living force, Middle America and rural communities.
  3. Humanize urban life, instead of destroying old buildings and landmarks for new ones, keep native architecture.  People have a deeper connection to their cities when their monuments remain for generations.  This was one reason why the World Trade Centers were targeted by terrorists, they were symbols of the Western world.
  4. And probably most importantly, return to family-centered and church-centered life, the glue that has held American culture together from the beginning.

 

*If you are curious to see Kirk’s arguments in more detail, they are contained in the chapter titled “The Problem of Tradition.”

Unclaimed: Vietnam Veteran Tells Story In New Film After Being Left Behind For 44 Years


Unclaimed: Vietnam Veteran Tells Story In New Film After Being Left Behind For 44 Years

robertson

Many of our brave men and women in uniform carry a motto that they will not leave a man behind. Sadly, in many instances that happens and it’s not because that is what those men want to happen. Such is the story of Special Forces Green Beret Master Sgt. John Hartley Robertson, whose helicopter was shot down over Laos in 1968 on a classified mission. He was declared dead in that same year. A new movie by Emmy-winning Edmonton Filmmaker Michael Jorgensen titled Unclaimed is Robertson’s story. See video @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEg3f65ctUc&feature=player_embedded

Robertson never forgot that he was a husband, a father and an American soldier who was born in Alabama. However, he did forget English and learned to speak only Vietnamese.

Robertson was captured by the Vietnamese and was accused of being a CIA spy. As a result, he was tortured for a year. He was badly injured and confused, but finally released and ended up marrying a Vietnamese nurse that had taken care of him during his captivity. The two had children and he assumed the name of her dead husband.

Jorgensen says that audiences will “lose their minds” and “come unglued” when they see Unclaimed. “They don’t hold anything higher than service to the country,” he said.

Ironically, Jorgensen said that there were roadblocks from the military in making the film, especially in contacting Mr. Robertson’s family. One high-0placed government source told him, “It’s not that the Vietnamese won’t let him (Robertson) go; it’s that our government doesn’t want him.”

Linda Barnard writes:

Unclaimed follows the dramatic quest of Vietnam vet Tom Faunce to prove that the man he was told about while on a 2008 humanitarian mission in Southeast Asia was indeed an Army “brother” who had been listed as killed in action and subsequently forgotten.

Faunce, a soft-spoken man who has suffered crushing loss and turmoil throughout his life, has devoted himself to helping the world’s most desperate people. He was determined to make good on his vow to leave no man behind after serving two years in a war that divided America and made him feel like a pariah when he finally came home.

“Tom went to meet him (Robertson) and was very skeptical, grilled this guy up and down trying to get him to break, to say, ‘Oh, no, I’m just making it up.’ And he was adamant he was that guy,” said Jorgensen, who was in Toronto to help host an invitation-only patrons’ screening of Unclaimed at the Hot Docs Bloor Cinema two weeks ago and sat down for an exclusive interview with the Star.

Robertson’s story seems unbelievable. And Jorgensen was equally skeptical when Faunce contacted him in 2012 about making a doc in the hope it would add muscle to his quest to reunite Robertson with his American family.

The film is complete with a touching meeting of Robertson and a soldier he had trained in 1960 and also a very moving scene when he is reunited with his only surviving sibling, 80 year old Jean Robertson-Holly, who had no idea that her brother could even be alive.

According to Jorgensen, “Jean says … ‘There’s no question. I was certain it was him in the video, but when I held his head in my hands and looked in his eyes, there was no question that was my brother.”

Both the soldier and the sister claimed there was no need of verifying fingerprints and DNA because they knew him at first sight. However, attempts were made to have DNA testing with his American wife and two children, but though they had previously agreed, they abruptly declined.

“Somebody suggested to me maybe that’s (because) the daughters don’t want to know if it’s him. It’s kind of like, that was an ugly war. It was a long time ago. We just want it to go away,” says Jorgensen. “I don’t know. What would compel you not to want to know if this person is your biological father?”

Hugh Tran, a Vietnam-born Edmonton senior police constable, was with Jorgensen to act as a translator between him and Robertson. He could find no evidence of an American accent at all. “To tell you the truth, after I interviewed him the first time, I was 90 percent sure he is MIA,” said Trans. “I still didn’t believe . . . until I saw the family reunion.”

Though Robertson appears to forget his birthday and even the names of his American children, Jorgensen says that there are moments that were not in the film where his memory is quite sharp. “These memories pop out,” says Jorgensen. “I’ll give you an example that’s not in the movie. The minute he (Robertson) walks in that room in Edmonton, he knows it’s Jean. He says to Henry, her husband, ‘Oh, I remember, you worked in the drugstore.’” Jean’s husband had been a pharmacist for 50 years.

Both Jean and her husband want answers as to why he was left in Vietnam. They were both involved in a car crash within days of their reunion with Robertson.

Mr. Robertson is back in Vietnam now, having fulfilled a long awaited wish to see his American family one more time before he dies.

When I think of men like John Kerry being promoted to Secretary of State after the treasonous actions that he engaged in and the politicizing of his “service” in Vietnam in his presidential bid and I compare him to someone like Mr. Robertson, I genuinely am disgusted with how such a man could ever be seen as anything but a coward. Perhaps if enough people were to flood the U.S. State Department on behalf of Robertson’s sister and brother-in-law, the pressure might be enough to get some answers for this family that were separated by nearly a half a century.

Unclaimed is scheduled to be screened at the G.I. Film Festival in Washington, D.C. in May. Please visit the Unclaimed website or take the time to introduce this generation to what men like Mr. Robertson and many in this audience have endured in the service of their country.

SPECIAL NOTE:
I am proud to say that I am a Vietnam veteran. This story hits me hard. – Jerry Broussard

Raping Arizona… Part 4 – Build the Dang Fence.


Posted by

 

Here’s Senator John McCain BEFORE his last election.

Since then… Crickets

We’ve all heard about how “border security” is included in the latest amnesty bill that McCain and the Gang of Eight are pushing.  Let’s be clear about security, a fence is critical to stopping the flow of illegal aliens and drugs.  Yesterday, we looked at pictures of what passes for “fence” on the border between Mexico and Arizona.  A real fence looks like this, it’s 15 feet high buried in six feet of concrete, is made of steel posts and has a cap on the top to deter climbers.

15 Ft Border Fence

Actually, this type of fence occupies just a few paltry miles of the border and it works quite well in those few paltry miles.  What actually passes for “fence” when the politicians talk about it looks more like this, minus the cute girl who is about five foot five.

Vehicle Barrier

As you might guess, this one might keep an SUV out of the country but it doesn’t even begin to slow down somebody on foot even if they’re carrying a backpack with eighty pounds of drugs.

Add to that outrage the fact that huge sections of the border don’t even have that.  There’s at least one Indian tribe that has land on the border and because they’re a “sovereign nation” they don’t allow the US government to erect a barrier.  Then there are some areas that are controlled by the US Department of the Interior and for environmental reasons no barriers are allowed.  As a matter of fact the US Border Patrol is not even allowed to patrol those areas without permission from Interior 30 days in advance.

But never fear, Janet Napolitano, who will be the person the proposed legislation allows to declare the border is secure, has assured us border security has never been better

“Now, I often hear the argument that before reform can move forward, we must first secure our borders. But too often, the border-security-first refrain simply serves as an excuse for failing to address the underlying problems,” Napolitano told the Senate Judiciary Committee today at a hearing on immigration.

“It also ignores the significant progress and efforts that we have undertaken over the past four years. Our borders have, in fact, never been stronger.”…

She said the results of 1986 amnesty wouldn’t happen again because “immigration enforcement now is light years away from what it was.”

“I think in 1986 there were a couple of miles of fence along the entire southern border and it was basically chain-link fence,”

I don’t think I need to comment much on the rank stupidity of those claims, the pictures above pretty well deconstruct them.

The Gang of Eight is also assuring us that they’ve built a clause into the legislation that requires that 90% of border crossers are apprehended before amnesty is doled out.  Well, they got gamed because there is actually no link between amnesty and border security, the legislation treats them as mutually exclusive.  And as to assurances that “…enforcement is light years away from what it was…” we’ve got some new data.

The U.S. Border Patrol has caught a fraction of the border crossers spotted by a sophisticated sensor mounted on unmanned spy aircraft and flown over remote stretches of desert, casting doubts on claims that the area is more secure than ever, according to documents obtained by the Center for Investigative Reporting.

The border crossers were spotted with a new, all-seeing radar system developed for use in the Afghanistan War and patrolling above the U.S.-Mexico border in parts of Arizona since March 2012. The system can reveal every man, woman and child under its gaze from a height of about 25,000 feet.

Between October and December, records show, the remotely operated aircraft detected 7,333 border crossers during its Arizona missions. Border Patrol agents, however, reported 410 apprehensions during that time, according to an internal agency report. The sensor was credited with providing surveillance that led to 52 arrests and 15,135 pounds of seized marijuana.

I have an engineering degree from a top university.  I learned how to do math but this problem really only requires 2nd grade arithmetic.  Or in today’s schools, maybe high school arithmetic.

If I divide 410 by 7,333 (that would be number caught by number of crossers) I get 5.59%.  I’m guessing that in whatever arithmetic is in use today that 5.59% is still a whole lot less than 90%.  So, we’re a tad short of our goal.  But we’re going ahead with amnesty anyway.

I’ve got $100 I’m willing to wager on whether the government even attempts to do better than six percent.

Bottom line, we don’t have a fence on the vast majority of the border and there is no plan to build one.

Napolitano, a former Arizona governor, noted a U.S. Border Patrol study determined a fence makes sense on 653 miles of the 2,000-mile southern border and so far some sort of fencing is up on 652 of those miles.

Get the idea?  It’s way past time to contact your Senators and your Representative.  Click the button and you can get their telephone numbers and you can send them faxes.  Let them know that it’s way past time to put security first and this bill doesn’t even address security in any meaningful way.

Clinton’s Signature Proves She Lied to Congress about Benghazi


by

In her testimony on Capitol Hill back in January, almost four full months after the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya (because that’s how speedy our government is), then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the State Department never received any requests for increased security to the embassy that was to be attacked.

“They didn’t come to me. I didn’t approve them. I didn’t deny them,” she said of the security requests.

But honestly, what difference, at this point, does it make?

Well, if Republicans in Congress could muster up the conviction, the courage, the energy to question Clinton the Professional Victim again, they would find that it makes quite a difference.

Recently released cables from that very same State Department reveal that Clinton, as a Clinton tends to do, was lying to Congress.

According to a congressional report, “[A]n April 2012 State Department cable bearing Secretary Hillary Clinton’s signature acknowledged then-Ambassador Cretz’s formal request for additional security assets but ordered the withdrawal of security elements to proceed as planned.”

What difference, at this point, does it make? Probably no difference at all, since Republicans will likely let it go, just as they did with President Obama and Eric Holder’s nefarious Fast and Furious plot to have Mexican citizens gunned down by American guns as a pretense for outlawing so-called assault rifles.

We now have Clinton’s own, signed admission that she was asked for additional security in Benghazi and that she denied that request. She now needs to take responsibility for the deaths of the four American diplomats who were tortured and killed because of her decision.

I had a liberal tell me that if Clinton goes to prison, then Bush should be in the cell next to her since he caused more deaths than she did.

But this isn’t about deaths per se. It is about the deliberate denial of requested security and then the deliberate deception under oath about it. Nothing in that is analogous to what Bush did. “He started a war based on a lie!” No, Congress voted to go to war based on information that the majority of the rest of the world believed based on their own intelligence sources–including, by the way, the Clintons themselves.

What I can’t wait to see is a “Hillary 2016″ bumper sticker. It’s entertaining to me to see how low liberals will go, how deep the bottom of the barrel must be before they decide to stop scraping out the muck. Supporting a signature-proven liar that resulted in the deaths of four Americans is pretty low. But as we’ve seen in the last two elections, Americans unfortunately no longer have any standards.

 

Mother Jones: ‘Right-Wing Extremism’ Killed More Since 9/11 Than Islamic Terror


by Ben Shapiro 25 Apr 2013 http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/04/25/mother-jones-right-wing

On Wednesday, Mother Jones ran an article making a shocking claim: more Americans have been killed by conservative terrorists than by Islamic terrorists since September 11, 2001. “While America has been fixated on the threat of Islamic terrorism for more than a decade, all but a few domestic terror plots have failed,” the article explained. “Between September 11, 2001, and the end of 2012, there were no successful bomb plots by jihadist terrorists in the United States …. [R]ight-wing extremists killed 29 people during those 11 years.”

But is it true?

The Mother Jones piece is based on a study by the New America Foundation and Syracuse University’s Maxwell School. But that study routinely labels non-right-wing murderers right-wingers, and labels basic crimes involving murder “terrorist attacks.”

Here is their complete list of “rightwing terrorist attacks,” with number of killed in parentheses:

  • Christopher and Wade Lay (1): In May 2004, Christopher and Wade Lay shot and murdered a security guard during a bank robbery. The son-and-father criminal team said they wanted to steal the money to buy arms to fight the government thanks to federal action at Waco in 1993 and Ruby Ridge in 1992. This is conspiratorial nonsense, not right-wing extremism. It is also murder, not terrorism, in the technical definition – it was not violence aimed at civilians to achieve a political purpose.
  • Jim David Adkisson (2): Adkisson shot up a church in Knoxville, Tennessee  in 2008 after he was unable to get a job, opening fire on children performing a musical. In a four-page letter outside the church, Adkisson “repeatedly included disgust for what he perceived to be the liberals in our country,” according to local authorities. He had also recently lost his public benefits, and his wife was a former member of the church. Local authorities stated, “That might have been a trigger.” The motivation is at best split politically.
  • Keith Luke (2): A white supremacist broke into an apartment, raped a woman, and shot two more people in 2009. He planned to attack a Jewish synagogue. His motive: killing “nonwhite people.” That is not right-wing. That is white supremacist. But the left always lumps in neo-Nazi types with the right, despite the fact that the Nazi movement was left-wing in orientation.
  • Scott Roeder (1): Roeder assassinated Dr. George Tiller, an abortionist, thanks to his own anti-abortion motives in 2009. Again, this is an assassination, not a terrorist attack.
  • James Von Brunn (1): Von Brunn shot a security guard at the US Holocaust Memorial in Washington, D.C. in June 2009. He was a white supremacist and Holocaust denier. He was not a right-winger.
  • Robert Andrew Poplawski (3): Poplawski got into a fight with his mother over a dog urinating in their home in 2009. He opened fire on Pittsburgh police officers, killing three. He was an anti-Semite and feared a gun ban by Barack Obama. Again, this was not a terrorist attack.
  • Joshua Cartwright (2): Cartwright started a fight with his wife over the location of his Clearasil in 2009. His rampage didn’t stop until after he had killed two sheriff’s deputies. Because Cartwright was described by his wife as conspiratorial and anti-Obama, this was labeled a right-wing terrorist attack. It wasn’t a terrorist attack, and it evidences no motivation based on politics.
  • ShawnaForde, Jason Eugene Bush, Albert Robert Gaxiola (2):
  • Raymond Franklin Peake (1): Peake, a prison guard, shot a lawyer to death at a gun range so he could steal his gun for use to overthrow the US government in 2010. Again, this was a robbery, not a terrorist attack, and there is no evidence Peake was a right-winger.
  • Andrew Joseph Stack (1): In 2009, Stack flew his small plane into the IRS building in Austin Texas, killing an IRS agent. Stack’s suicide note contained rage at the IRS. His suicide note was openly communist: “The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.” He railed in that note against George W. Bush.
  • David “Joey” Pedersen and Holly Ann Grigsby (4): The white supremacist couple killed four people in the Pacific Northwest in 2011 because they were minority or had Jewish names. They wanted to target Jewish organizations. There is no evidence they were right-wing.
  • Wade Michael Page (5): Page opened fire at a Sikh mosque in 2012. He was brewing in the culture of Nazi hate music. There is no evidence Page was right-wing.
  • Brian Lyn Smith (2): Smith and his friend Kyle David Joekel were involved in the shooting of two sheriff’s deputies in Louisiana in 2012. Both were members of the sovereign citizens movement. This is the only attack on the list that could legitimately be considered a “right-wing extremist terrorist attack.”
  • Isaac Aguigui, Anthony Peden, Christopher Salmon, Heather Salmon (2): These four killed a former Army compatriot, and formed an anarchist militia group. They allegedly wanted to poison Washington State’s apple crop and blow up a dam. Aguigui was a page at the Republican National Convention in 2008. The killing was a murder, not a terrorist attack.

Realistically speaking, then, there were a grand total of 2 killings over the last 12 years by “right-wing extremists.”

The study lists just four Islamic terrorist attacks in that period:

  • Hesham Mohamed Hadayet (2): He shot two at the El-Al counter at Los Angeles International Airport in 2002.
  • Naveed Afzal Haq (1): He shot up the Jewish Federation building in Seattle, Washington in 2006.
  • Nidal Malik Hasan (13): The perpetrator of the Fort Hood terrorist attack.
  • Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad (1): He shot up a Little Rock recruitment office in 2009.

The list does not include the Beltway snipers (11 killed, including a 2002 shooting of a Tucson man); Mohammed Ali Alayed, who slashed a Jewish friend’s throat after reportedly undergoing a religious revival; Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, who used his SUV to attack students (9 injured) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in revenge for “the deaths of Muslims worldwide”; the list goes on. The list also does not include honor killings (the equivalent to the George Tiller assassination), or random murders involving Muslims (the equivalent of half the items on the “rightwing terrorist attacks” list.

Naturally, the study does not bother to list left-wing terrorists.

The attempt by the left, including Mother Jones, to minimize the threat of Islamic terror inside the United States and to maximize the threat of “right-wing extremism” is all too obvious. By using the label “right-wing extremism” to apply to everything from neo-Nazis to anarchists, the left seeks to smear the right, the same way it smeared the right with the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords.

The truth remains that the Islamist threat in the United States is very real – and that only the dedication of law enforcement has stopped substantially more Islamist attacks. After the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three and wounded well over 170, only a truly philosophically perverse publication would claim that right-wingers are actually more of a threat to public safety than Islamists.

President Bush Was Correct. WMD’s Did End Up In Syria


Lawmakers demand ‘action’ in Syria after intel confirms chemical weapons use

Published April 25, 2013

FoxNews.com

Top-ranking lawmakers on both sides of the aisle declared Thursday that the “red line” in Syria has been crossed, calling for “strong” U.S. and international intervention after administration officials revealed the intelligence community believes chemical weapons were used.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee, were among those urging swift action.

McCain, who has long called for more involvement in Syria, voiced concern that the administration would use “caveats” to avoid acting on the new intelligence. He said America’s enemies are paying “close attention” to whether the U.S. follows through, as the White House signaled it wanted to see more proof before responding to the new information.

“I worry that the president and the administration will use these caveats as an excuse not to act right away or act at all,” McCain told Fox News. “The president clearly stated that it was a red line and that it couldn’t be crossed without the United States taking vigorous action.”

He called for the U.S. to help establish a no-fly zone and “safe zone” in Syria, as well as provide weapons to the “right people.”

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel first revealed the intelligence assessment, which was detailed in a letter to select members of Congress, while speaking to reporters on a visit to Abu Dhabi. The administration then released those letters, which said U.S. intelligence determined with varying degrees of confidence that “the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria, specifically the chemical agent sarin.”

Secretary of State John Kerry further confirmed that there were two documented instances of chemical weapons use.

The White House, however, stressed that this was not enough to confirm how the nerve gas was released — though acknowledged it is “very likely” to have originated with the regime of Bashar Assad — and pressed the United Nations for a “comprehensive” investigation. The letter from the White House director of the Office of Legislative Affairs to leading members of the Senate Armed Services Committee said the assessment was based in part on “physiological samples.”

A White House official also urged caution, invoking the Iraq war as an example of why the administration should be absolutely certain before going forward.

“Given our own history with intelligence assessments, including intelligence assessments related to WMD, it’s very important that we are able to establish this with certainty and that we are able to provide information that is airtight … to underpin all of our decision-making,” the official said. “That is, I think, the threshold that is demanded given how serious this issue is.”

A senior U.S. defense official told Fox News the Defense Department has been preparing a wide range of contingency plans for military involvement in Syria for the past year. President Obama has seen the plans and is fully aware of those options.

The options, according to this official, range from establishing no-fly zones to creating humanitarian zones to launching strikes on chemical weapons sites, select regime leadership and other targets. The official emphasized that no decisions have been made about whether to further involve the U.S. military in Syria and that there are still many questions that need to be answered first.

A United Nations spokesman said the chemical weapon findings reinforce the need for U.N. officials to “be given the requested swift and unfettered access to Syria that it needs to determine whether chemical weapons have indeed been used.”

McCain, speaking to Fox News, said in his view the red line “was crossed.”

Feinstein, an important voice on matters of intelligence and security, also said it is “clear” those lines have been crossed and “action must be taken to prevent larger scale use.”

She added, in a statement: “Syria has the ability to kill tens of thousands with its chemical weapons. The world must come together to prevent this by unified action which results in the secure containment of Syria’s significant stockpile of chemical weapons. On the basis of this new assessment, which is matched by France and the United Kingdom, I urge the United Nations Security Council — including Russia — to finally take strong and meaningful action to end this crisis in Syria.”

President Obama has said the use of chemical weapons would be a “game-changer” in the U.S. position on intervening in the two-year-old Syrian civil war. Obama said last August that “a red line for us” would be the movement or use of chemical weapons, adding “that would change my calculus.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., reacting to the reports Thursday, said the “number one” goal should be to “secure the chemical weapons before they fall into the wrong hands.”

“I think the red line’s been crossed and the question is, now what?” Graham said on Fox News.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., also said in a statement the assessment is “deeply troubling and, if correct, means that President Obama’s red line has certainly been crossed.”

But Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., argued that it is not in the United States’ “best interest” to go into Syria. “We cannot be absolutely sure about the extent to which Assad’s forces have used chemical weapons, although we know they have them,” he said in a statement.

Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council, said more information is needed.

“Precisely because the president takes this issue so seriously, we have an obligation to fully investigate any and all evidence of chemical weapons use within Syria,” she said in a statement. “That is why we are currently pressing for a comprehensive United Nations investigation that can credibly evaluate the evidence and establish what took place. We are also working with our friends and allies, and the Syrian opposition, to procure, share and evaluate additional information associated with reports of the use of chemical weapons so that we can establish the facts.”

Asked if this crossed a “red line” for the U.S., Hagel likewise said they are still trying to assess.

“It violates every convention of warfare,” he said.

In a statement Thursday, a spokesperson for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that he takes the letter to Congress “seriously,” but that the UN is not in a position to comment on assessments based on national intelligence information.

“Senior advisers at UN Headquarters have been in contact with the US authorities on the latest developments,” the spokesperson said. “The Secretary-General has already put together a technical expert team to conduct a fact-finding mission to look into all serious allegations of the possible use of chemical weapons in Syria.”

According to the spokesperson, the fact-finding team is on stand-by and ready to deploy in 24-48 hours.

“The Secretary-General has consistently urged the Syrian authorities to provide full and unfettered access to the team. He renews this urgent call today.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Raping Arizona… Part 3 – Who Controls the Border?


It’s not the Border Patrol or Homeland Security.

If your only source of information is network or cable TV or a newspaper you might thing the southern border is a safe and secure place.  Just ask Janet Napolitano

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has repeatedly claimed that the border is more secure than ever, but when DHS officials were pressed at a recent Homeland Security Committee hearing to demonstrate how this progress has been measured, they had no verifiable metrics to support their claims.

In fact, Napolitano has stopped using the widely accepted term of “operational control.” This was not because they had achieved it — it was precisely the opposite.

In fact, the southern border makes Chicago and Detroit look like an old folks home.

Part of the problem is that very few people actually know what the border looks like.  We hear lots of talk about “the fence” and politicians like John McCain love to be seen standing in front of the fence to give you the idea that the border is fenced and secure.  It’s not.

This is a fifteen foot post fence with a steel box on the top.  This is a secure fence that John McCain would like to stand in front of.

15 Ft Border Fence

That type of fence is on less than 10% of the border.  What actually passes for fencing is actually a vehicle barrier.

 

The cute girl is five feet five and the greenery is Mexico.  Welcome to what border security looks like.  It’s difficult to see the footprints in the dirt on the other side of the barrier, but there are paths coming over the side of the ditch that have obviously been used thousands of times and the footprints are all headed north.

The land on the south side of the vehicle Vehicle Barrierbarrier, which was once a ranch owned by John Wayne, is all owned by the Mexican drug cartels for as far as you can see.  This is a highway from Mexico into Arizona that illegal aliens and drugs flow over daily just like commuters into LA on Interstate 5.

You don’t hear anything about the increase in traffic that occurred once President Obama announced his plans for amnesty last year.  He made the announcement on August 15 and south of Tucson, which is one of three “major” border crossing areas, Border Patrol was apprehending about 10 people per day.  By October 31 that was up to 90 per day as shown on this chart from American Border Patrol.

Human Smuggling Chart

OK Mike, the border isn’t secure, so what?  Well, here’s the desert about 30 miles outside of Phoenix.  These pictures were taken about a mile from both Interstate 8 and 10, the major highways in Arizona.

Phoenix Drugs 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What you see here is trash from traffickers.  The burlap and the backpacks are filled with drugs on the Mexican side of the Phoenix Drugs 1border and loaded onto the backs of “undocumented workers” who make the trek north in search of a better life for their family.  Or something.  This is not an isolated site, there are literally hundreds of them along the dirt road that is within sight of Interstate 8.

Here’s what happens when the “undocumented workers” get to the drop site. See video @http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=verK_92IKjU&feature=player_embedded

Remember, Janet Napolitano thinks the border is secure.  And John McCain and his Gang of Eight buddies are insisting that there won’t be any “amnesty” until Homeland Security (an oxymoron if there ever was one) certifies that the border is “secure.”  My guess is that will take about a month.

Just in case you still want to think that the federal government is actually doing anything to secure the border, given the billions of dollars they’ve spent in the last few years, here is a “fence” at Naco, Arizona, sorry for the glare…

8 Ft Border Fence

This fence is about eight feet high and is nothing but corrugated metal bolted to steel fence posts.  There are any number of places where the metal has been cut with a saw or where someone has dug under it.  The typical repair is a patch over the cut and large rocks in the tunnels under the fence.

Not 50 feet away from that mess sits steel posts for a 15 foot fence that would actually secure the areas.  These fences are buried in six feet of concrete and have barriers on the top.  These posts have been laying there for as long as anybody can remember and there is no plan to actually do anything but store them.

Fence Rails

And while we’re talking about your tax money at work, the folks from Arizona Project who put this tour together took us by three Border Patrol offices and one highway checkpoint.  There are literally hundreds of Border Patrol vehicles – all GM SUVs – parked at each location.  There are more vehicles than officers to drive them.  Remember that the next time you year GM is selling lots of cars.

Border Patrol Vehicles

We need to secure our border, it’s a basic function of the federal government.  The immigration bill that the Gang of Eight put together in secret and is trying to ram through the US Senate will not do the job.  It will leave the border open and grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

Let your Congressman and your Senators know you want the border secured before we even talk about immigration policy.

Socialist Obama Adminstration Getting More Arrogant


Big Sis: Obama Admin Can Pick Which Laws to Enforce

by Matthew Boyle 24 Apr 2013 http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/04/24/Big-Sis-declares-Obama-has-power-to-pick-which-laws-to-enforce-as-immigration-bill-would-grant-admin-more-authority

During her testimony on the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared that she, President Barack Obama and other political officials at the top of this administration have the authority to decide which laws to enforce, and which ones to ignore.

Napolitano made the declaration in an exchange with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) when he was questioning her on how Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have alleged that political officials in the Obama administration, including her, have blocked them from enforcing the law.

Sessions noted that ICE agents’ union president Chris Crane had testified on Monday “that agents are prohibited from enforcing the law and, indeed, the ICE officers have filed a lawsuit [to that effect].”

“I started out as a federal prosecutor in the Department of Justice in 1975,” Sessions said. “I have never heard of a situation in which a group of law officers sued their supervisor and you for blocking them from following the law. They weren’t complaining about pay, benefits, working conditions. They were saying their very oath they took, to enforce the law, is being blocked by rules and regulations and policies established from on high and that this is undermining their ability to do what they’re sworn to do.”

In her response to those remarks from Sessions, Napolitano said she believes she and other political officials have the authority to tell law enforcement agents which laws to enforce and which ones to ignore.

“There are tensions with union leadership, unfortunately, but here’s what I expect as a former federal prosecutor and attorney general, and that is that law enforcement agents will enforce the law in accord with the guidance they’re given from their superiors,” Napolitano said. “That’s what we ask of ICE, that’s what we ask of Border Patrol, that’s what we ask throughout the Department and I believe that would be consistent with all law enforcement. Agents don’t set the enforcement priorities. Those are set by their superiors and they are asked then to obey that guidance in accord with the law.”

Sessions was not pleased with Napolitano’s response, so he followed up by asking: ““Well, what Mr. Crane testified to was that there are law provisions that say an agent shall do this, that and the other, and that the policies set by their political supervisors refuse to allow them to do what the law plainly requires. You are not entitled to set policies, are you, that violate the mandates of congressional law?”

Napolitano answered that question by saying she “disagree[s] with almost everything” Sessions has said, “but we’ll just have to respectfully disagree with each other.”

“But, I think it does point to why this bill needs to be passed, because what we want our officers doing is focusing on narco-traffickers and human smugglers and money launderers and others who misuse our border and our immigration system,” Napolitano said. “By having a process by which those in the country illegally can pay a fine, pay fees, register so we know who they are, by dealing with the employer demand for illegal labor, by opening up the visa system, that will have the effect, basically, of confirming the focus of resources where they need to be.”

Despite Napolitano’s and the administration’s belief that they can tell law enforcement agents which laws to enforce and which ones to ignore, the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill cedes even more authority away from Congress and gives it to the administration.

In their lines of questioning with Napolitano during Tuesday’s hearing, Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) focused on how the bill cedes authority. In a statement he issued after the hearing indicating he is not satisfied with the bill’s so-called “border security triggers” that are supposedly meant to ensure the border actually gets secured, Cruz said he does not trust the bill will actually secure the border.

“As it stands, the border security component – which numbers only 58 pages of the 844-page bill – largely cedes authority to the Department of Homeland Security to determine when and how the border would be secure,” Cruz said. “However, today’s hearing revealed that the last clear metric for border security – ‘operational control’ – reflected that in 2010, DHS had secured 873 miles of the more than 2,000 mile border. When that metric did not demonstrate success, DHS decided to simply abandon the metric. In order for a metric to be real, it must be meaningful. Currently, there are no objective metrics in place to ensure any triggers in this bill will be meaningful, all while the pathway to citizenship component remains contingent on this undefined border security.”

Lee similarly questioned why the Gang of Eight bill gives Napolitano and the administration so much authority. “Some of the questions that I have as I’ve read through this bill over the last few days relate to the amount of discretion you are given, you and your successors will be given over time, should this become law,” Lee opened his line of questioning with Napolitano on Tuesday.

Even Gang of Eight member Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) admits the amount of authority the bill would cede to the administration is controversial. “Biggest challenge on #immigrationreform has been well founded lack of trust that Obama administration will enforce the law,” Rubio Tweeted on Tuesday. “Its [sic] a big problem”

Outraged parents say a New York middle school instructed young female students to ask one another for a lesbian kiss – and boys learned how to spot young sluts – in an anti-bullying presentation on gender identity and sexual orientation, according to Fox News’ Todd Starnes.

According to Starnes’ Report, the children attended a special April 11 health class taught by college students at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, N.Y. Parents say they were not notified of the presentation.

The students were introduced to terms such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer.”

Some of the young female students said they were told it was common for 14-year-old girls to have sex and their parents couldn’t stop them.

Mandy Coon, a mother of an eighth-grade student said, “I am furious. I am her parent. Where does anyone get the right to tell her that it’s OK for her to have sex?”

According to Fox News, Coon said her daughter was distressed by the presentation and wondered why she’d been required to ask another girl to kiss her.

“She told me, ‘Mom, we all get teased and picked on enough – now I’m going to be called a lesbian because I had to ask another girl if I could kiss her,’” Coon said.

According to the mother, the school said the lesson was meant to “teach girls boundaries and how to say no.”

“They also picked two girls to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date,” Coons said.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reported that Red Hook Central School District Superintendent Paul Finch said the class focused on “improving culture, relationships, communication and self-perceptions.”

Finch said it is mandatory that the middle school teach those issues in accordance with the state’s Dignity for All Students Act.

Parent Tara Burns told Fox News, “The school is overstepping its bounds in not notifying parents first and giving us the choice. I thought it was very inappropriate. That kind of instruction is best left up to the parents.”

Parents of middle-school boys were outraged by the school’s lessons on condom usage and determining whether a girl is a slut.

“I was absolutely furious – really furious,” said one parent of a 13-year-old boy. “They were teaching the boys how to decipher if a girl is a slut.”

According to the parent, who wished to remain anonymous, boys were told to determine whether girls are promiscuous by the way they dress or the number of boys they date.

“We don’t judge people like that in our family,” she said. “We don’t call women names because of what they wear or who they date.”

The Journal reported that Principal Katie Zahedi wrote in a Facebook forum for parents that the exercise was “not to pretend to be gay” but to practice saying “no” to unwanted advances: “In planning the discussion, we made it clear that absolutely no discussion of any sexual acts is appropriate to middle school, and they used the examples of a kiss. It was a separate activity for boys and girls and ultimately about respect and safety.”

According to Fox News, the anonymous parent also said boys were instructed to always carry condoms in their wallets.

“These are just kids,” she said. “I’m dumbfounded that they found this class was appropriate.”

Concerned individuals may contact Red Hook Central Schools at (845)758-2241 or email Superintendent Paul Finch.

 

Russian Calls Out Barack Obama As A Communist

obama-crazy-face-marxist

Barack Obama is called a pure Communist by the Russian Press and many in Russia are making that statement. Maybe that is why the Boston Bombers could get away with what they did. It seems that Russia knew that the older brother was one to watch and they informed our intelligence community of it, yet the FBI once again failed because they “did not want to inflame people with Jihad connections or ideology!” Obama has declared that the United States will not “attack” those who hate the United States and instead, Obama wants to try to appease the situation in the terrorists’ favor. One individual, a man named Xavier Lerma, who wrote many articles about Obama and what he has done, along with calling the people of the United States stupid and ignorant for putting him in office has openly called Obama a Communist! His article, “Obama’s Soviet Mistake,” discusses why what Obama is doing now has been done before in Russia and it failed.

Mr. Lerma stated:

“Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.”

This was in the first paragraph of his article where he made the statement about President Obama, “Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O’bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like “fast and furious” and there is still no sign of ending it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

How many times have the Obama Supporters been called the “Kool Aid Kids?” Yet,Obama still gets his way by making taxes on purchases of anything on the internet. There is no doubt that new internet sales tax legislation will simply be another tax that will be used by Obama to do as he wishes to do! Yep, the United Socialists States of America has tasted the drink of illusion and they will dance in the fire should Obama tell them to do so!

Lerma continued:

“Russia lost its’ civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once “Land of the Free” remain the United Socialist States of America? Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie! You know the song you hippies. Sing it! Don’t you remember? The 1971 hit song by American song writer Don McLean:

“And, as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.

No angel born in Hell could break that Satan’s spell

And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw…

Satan laughing with delight the day the music died

He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry

Them good ol’ boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing…

This’ll be the day that I die.

How long will America suffer and to what depths?”

We must wonder just how long will people be dragged along with Obama over the cliff of failure? Obama has lied so much that he has to go back to video to make sure he keeps the lie going. Here we get a small insight into what the Russian people are told about Obama and the United States! Could this be why Obama has not had a very good relation with Russia, because Putin does not like Obama and considers him a fool? In another article by Mr. Lerma he discusses the current gun control measures that Obama has finally pushed while he had the very idea early when he was a Senator, Obama kept it silent until he was re-elected so he could continue on his agenda to destroy the United States. The worst part of this is that if a Russian man can see this, why have no reporters in the United States seen this? It just does not make sense unless they have a part in the forced failure of the United States.

Mr. Lerma wrote about President Obama, the NRA and many other ideas that reporters in the United States just seem to not see in his article:

“The NRA is right, Obama is an “Elitist Hypocrite” but he is actually worse than that. He is a liar and a murderer causing chaos in America and the world. Obama’s sins multiply more than Dorian Gray’s but people still think he looks good. Looking good is all that matters in America, right? The list goes on: he raised taxes on everyone when he said he would not; killing innocent people with drones; executive privilege in “Fast and Furious“; the so called “Arab Spring“; promoting abortions; lying to Russia and pointing missiles at us; paying off his communist buddies to hire Russians to protest against Putin; no effort to lower the US debt by even one penny, etc.. Yet, most people still love him in the US. Those against him stand firm. Obama and those who own him cannot force Americans to give up their guns now, but he will eventually.”

Why is it that the so-called reporters within the United States cannot see what people outside the United States can see? Come on people wake up and inform those who do not know!

Arizona’s SB 1070


Raping Arizona… Part 2 – SB1070

Posted by on Apr 24, 2013 inhttp://joeforamerica.com/2013/04/raping-arizona-part-2-sb1070/

Yesterday we introduced you to what life is REALLY like on the southern border and it’s not what Janet Napolitano and John McCain would have you believe.  Arizona is being invaded by a criminal class and the pro-amnesty crowd is ignoring it and lying about it.

Today, I’m going to talk about SB1070, the state’s immigration law that drove President Obama and the open borders folks to distraction.  As a reminder, this is a series and upcoming installments will include…

  • Drug and immigration cartels.
  • The Fence.
  • The Numbers.  How many illegals are here and how many are coming across.
  • What is the Border Patrol doing and how effective are they?
  • How to stop the flow.
  • Gang of Eight Immigration Legislation, good or bad?

SB1070SB1070 created lots of controversy in Arizona’s effort to fight illegal immigration.  We got sued by all the usual suspects, lost in Federal Court, lost in the Ninth Circus and won in the Supreme Court.  The most controversial parts of the law included what opponents called “show me your papers” and a requirement that business use eVerify to verify that new employees are eligible to be hired.

Our Governor, Jan Brewer, has gotten plaudits around the country from conservatives for SB1070.  Let me be clear about this.  Jan Brewer is a political hack, she had nothing to do with writing SB1070, did not support it or comment on it as it made its way through the legislature and nobody knew if she would sign it or veto it after it passed.  She waited until the last day to sign, walked out on a stage and at least half the state – the conservative part – was shocked when she signed it.

It was a purely a survival move.  She had taken office when Janet Napolitano went to Washington and was in a four way reelection fight, she was running third and falling.  Her handlers played the game well.  Brewer read her lines very well, even stood up to Obama (although I think that was to sell more books – she’d just self-published an ebook that went through the roof after her airport confrontation with the President) and walked to an easy win in the primary and general election.  Again, Jan Brewer is a hack.

With respect to SB1070, I’ve been an opponent of it since day one.  I thought it targeted the wrong people, would create unnecessary dust-ups, like the litigation process we were tied up in for years, and would end up being ineffective.  I was right.

The point of SB1070 was never to enforce immigration law, it was to create a hostile environment so illegals would get out of Arizona and head for friendlier climes, like California.  They are bankrupting our state, California doesn’t seem to mind bankrupting theirs so there was hope SB1070 would give illegals the incentive to leave the state.  It did work for a little while, but eventually everything bogged down.  It’s expensive to administrate and the Feds didn’t want to take the illegal we were arresting.

First of all, the “show me your papers” part of the law.  In the world of stupid, that was king.  The State of Arizona has had a law on the books for decades that required every citizen to have a state issued photo ID on their person at all times.  It’s a misdemeanor and you are subject to arrest if you don’t have one when asked to identify yourself by a police officer.  All this section did, according to dozens of police officers I spoke with, was effectively put a lawyer in car with them every time they asked someone for ID.  It added nothing to their ability to do their job, took about zero additional illegals off the street and created a firestorm in the process.

The good part of the law was the eVerify requirement.  Businesses hated it and campaigned against it.  Even though it made the final cut, the law is toothless and doesn’t provide enough punishment for ignoring it.

eVerify is a great solution.  It’s 98% accurate, it’s free assuming you have an internet connection and it takes less than a minute.  It’s similar to the requirement for an I9 form that all businesses are required to collect on new hires, but it accesses the Social Security database and verifies that the employee is who he or she says they are.

SB1070 could have worked had the legislature found a spine.  The solution is simple and basically ignores the illegals.

First, require eVerify for every employee.  SB1070 gave a pass to existing employees and that is an open admission by the business lobby that they’ve got illegals on their payrolls.

Second, extend the eVerify requirement to rental housing.  Require that landlords or their agents have an eVerify result on every tenant in a rental property.

Third, make enforcement worthwhile and make compliance a matter of life and death.

The state would audit businesses and rental properties on a routine basis.  The business would be required to provide proof that they have eVerify forms for every employee or tenant.  If an employee or tenant is found to be an illegal alien, the eVerify form is an affirmative defense.

If they do not have the form it’s an automatic fine of $1,000 per missing form.  If the employee or tenant is found to be an illegal, the fine jumps to $20,000 and the business owner/landlord/property manager is charged with a felony.  The fine is not dischargeable in bankruptcy and if the business is unable to pay the fine it attaches to the owners.  The felony charge is not able to be reduced.

The fines are large enough that the state will aggressively pursue enforcement of the law and it won’t tie up police to enforce it.  Accountants will work just fine and they’re cheaper than cops.  In addition, the businesses that are most prone to hiring illegals are construction and hospitality.  You can’t get a business or liquor license in Arizona with a felony conviction.  Now you’ve got incentive for the businesses to follow the law.

Obviously this isn’t going to happen.  In the current legislation before the Senate the eVerify system is being scrapped and replaced with an new and undefined system and businesses have 10 years to implement it.  Get the idea?

We need to tell Congress that the Gang of Eight is wrong.  This current bill is amnesty for millions of lawbreakers, has no enforcement provisions that will be implemented and asks us to trust the same government that’s refused to secure the border for the past twenty years.

What could be the terrorists’ motivations?


Rush Is Right About Boston Influence on Bombers

 http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/rush-boston-bombers/2013/04/24/id/501161?s=al&promo_code=1342C-1

By Kent Clizbe

The Boston Marathon massacre was carried out by two Caucasian Muslim brothers, one an American citizen, the other likely a green-card holder.

In the aftermath, the politically correct media and commentators are all flabbergasted. Over and over, the media reported, “Dzhokhar was a normal American kid.”

They wondered: What could be the terrorists’ motivations?

Recently, talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh came under liberal media attack for linking the bombers’ behavior to the “liberal elite intellectual thought” that infects the Boston community.

Limbaugh explained to a caller on his show how such a mindset harms young kids.

“They hang around people that don’t like America, they get inspired or influenced by it somehow, and it’s no wonder,” Limbaugh said.

“And if you end up around the wrong people long enough and you’re young enough and impressionable enough, then that kind of thing can happen,” Limbaugh said.

With the questions swirling of why two upwardly mobile young people in America could commit such acts, a good place to start would be the “educations” the two Tsarnaev brothers received.

Younger brother Dzhokhar graduated from the celebrated Boston high school Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (CRLS). A graduate of CRLS has had years of anti-American claptrap crammed down his throat.

The media has widely quoted retired CRLS teacher Larry Aaronson’s shocked reminiscences about Dzhokhar. Aaronson told The Boston Globe, “This is a progressive town, the People’s Republic, and how could this be in our midst?

“I’m at a loss. I’m at a total and complete loss.”

Well, Larry might start looking at his own classroom handiwork. Aaronson is an acolyte of the raving, America-hating, deceased “revisionist historian” Howard Zinn.

Zinn was a liberal elite darling. Zinn claimed his eyes were opened to the racist, imperialist horror that is America by writer I.F. Stone, who later was confirmed to be a KGB covert influence agent when the Iron Curtain fell and certain Soviet documents became public.

Aaronson, who retired in 2007, used to brag to anyone who would listen that he had taught Zinn’s textbook to CLRS students since the beginning of his career in 1981.

Aaronson also proudly related how his students at CLRS had included actor Matt Damon and Damon’s brother.

He proudly told how the Damon boys were taken with the anti-American history of Zinn.
Larry, in an homage to Zinn upon his death in 2008, started with this quote from the movie “Good Will Hunting,” quoting Matt Damon, “You wanna read a really good American history book? Read Howard Zinn’s ‘A People’s History of the United States.’ It will knock your socks off.”

If you don’t know Zinn’s handiwork, here’s a sample of his writing in The Progressive. Zinn’s contempt for America and its citizens fairly drips from each word: “The deeply ingrained belief — no, not from birth but from the educational system and from our culture in general that the United States is an especially virtuous nation makes us especially vulnerable to government deception. It starts early, in the first grade, when we are compelled to ‘pledge allegiance’ (before we even know what that means), forced to proclaim that we are a nation with ‘liberty and justice for all.’

“And then come the countless ceremonies, whether at the ballpark or elsewhere, where we are expected to stand and bow our heads during the singing of the ‘Star Spangled Banner,’ announcing that we are ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave.’ There is also the unofficial national anthem ‘God Bless America,’ and you are looked on with suspicion if you ask why we would expect God to single out this one nation — just 5 percent of the world’s population — for his or her blessing.”

Aaronson boasted that angry parents called him to say their kids were talking about “that bastard Christopher Columbus … and his genocide, and how we have to question our history books and re-examine the evidence.” The CRLS teacher continued with relish, “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

With that backstory illuminated, let’s return to the liberal media puzzling over “What could the Tsarnaev boys’ motive possibly be?”

After the Marathon massacre, the media quoted the Zinn-acolyte Aaronson in its stories about the terrorist mass murderer.

Aaronson was “utterly shocked by the news.” The media reported that, “Aaronson taught social studies at Cambridge Rindge and Latin, where Dzhokhar was a student.”
The media reports continued, “Dzhokhar also lives just about three houses down from Aaronson’s condo, so they would talk from time to time after Dzhokhar’s graduation in 2011.”

“I will say to you and to anyone who asks me,” Aaronson told WBUR’s David Boeri outside his home in Cambridge on Friday morning, “he had a heart of gold, he was a sweetheart, he was gracious, he was caring, he was compassionate.”

ABC, CBS, USA Today, The New York Times, and CNN all carried versions of Aaronson’s comments about “how normal” his neighbor and student Dzhokhar was.
None of the media provided any other background on Aaronson and his brainwashing of students at CRLS with Zinn’s history.

The media reports studiously ignore the connection between Dzhokhar’s anti-American lessons taught by a “social justice” weenie like Aaronson or from a book by follower Zinn who took his cues from a KGB covert influence agent named Stone – and was later slyly celebrated in a Hollywood film known as Matt Damon’s “Good Will Hunting.”

As for the older brother Tamerlan’s “education,” it appears that he was a follower of a Lebanese-Australian extremist cleric whose messages of hatred for Western culture were prominent on Tamerlan’s YouTube playlists, and he may well have been taught terrorist techniques during a recent trip abroad.

It appears that Tamerlan recently spent six months overseas. In Russia? Or did he travel elsewhere? Did he go to Chechnya? Did he spend time in what appears to be his homeland, Dagestan, where his father now lives? Who did he meet there? What did he do there?
 
We do know that Tamerlan returned “from Russia” in the summer of 2012. His brother would have been out of high school for about a year. His return was about nine months before the Boston Marathon bombing.

If Tamerlan trained on bombing and attack techniques, he could have returned to Boston with the attack plan fully laid out. He would have the skills required to make the bombs. He would likely already have identified the target.

And he would have the techniques required to carry out the attacks. All that would be missing was the materials to make the bombs, and an accomplice.

So, in this scenario, we have a committed, trained Islamic terrorist ready to carry out his attack. What pool will he draw from to recruit his accomplice?

Why, his “average American” brother, Dzhokhar.

UN Human Rights Official Says Boston Got What It Deserved


http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/04/22/UN-Human-Rights-Official-Says-Boston-Got-What-It-Deserved

 by Anne Bayefsky 22 Apr 2013 446 post a comment View Discussion

UN Human Rights Council “expert” Richard Falk has published a statement saying Bostonians got what they deserved in last week’s terror attack.  He quotes W.H. Auden to make his point: “to whom evil is done/do evil in return.”

Richard Falk is the UN’s “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” He has held the post since 2008, despite exposure as a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.

In his latest rant, published online on April 21, 2013 by foreignpolicyjournal.com Falk repeats the libel that prior to 9/11 President George W. Bush was seeking a “pretext” for war, and that anything Israel is the opposite of “justice and peace.”

And then he attacks Bostonians head-on. The police action in Boston was a “hysterical dragnet.”  Boston’s dead were “canaries” that “have to die” because of America’s “fantasy of global domination.”

Falk explains the attacks as justifiable “resistance.” In his words: “The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world.”

He minimizes the crime and predicts worse if America doesn’t change its ways to better accommodate the demands of “the Islamic world.” As he puts it: “In some respects, the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen…”.

For years, Falk has been espousing the worst forms of antisemitism from his UN perch, and for his efforts has been rewarded with repeated opportunities by the Council to lecture others on his world view.

That world view is shared by the 56 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), who only a week ago at UN Headquarters refused to define terrorism unless an exception clause was created for “legitimate struggle.”

The OIC controls the balance of power at the UN’s top human rights body, by holding majorities in both the African and Asian regional groups. Africa and Asia, in turn, control 26 of the 47 seats on the Council. With the backing of the OIC, therefore, Falk has been encouraged and protected.

The Obama administration has long championed the UN Human Rights Council, which it decided to join as one of its first foreign policy moves in 2009. Thanks to the Obama administration, U.S. began a second three-year term on the Council this past January. At the opening of the Council’s most recent session in March, Assistant Secretary of State Esther Brimmer traveled to Geneva to address what she called “this esteemed body.”

There is nothing about a “human rights” body that countenances the likes of Richard Falk that is “esteemed,” and the United States should resign–effective immediately.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil


Time to Start Profiling Muslims Instead of Christians

By /http://clashdaily.com/2013/04/time-to-start-profiling-muslims-instead-of-christians/

MH900409382On Monday, as I heard the news of the Boston Marathon bombing, I heard some lame-brained reporter on the radio claim that, “this changes everything.” His follow-up was something about none of us being safe anymore. My first thought was, “What! Where has this guy been since 9/11?”

But then, I remembered that many Americans, led by politicians and the media, have accepted the notion that we are no longer threatened by Islamic jihad. They have been lulled to sleep by the lie that Islam is a “religion of peace.” With the killing of Bin Laden and our withdrawal from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, they have been convinced by the campaign rhetoric that “Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.” We are under the impression that we have been kept safe from Islamic jihad since 9/11, forgetting that the Ft Hood shooter was named Hasan and shouted, “allahyu akkbar.” That incident has been forgotten because the “enlightened” administration has labeled it “work place violence.” Until this week, Obama had dropped the term “Islamic terrorism” from his lexicon.

How fitting is it that the two brothers both ended up at Beth Israel Hospital in the caring arms of JEWS!!!!!? Now we will be subjected to a societal anal exam for weeks on end because of our self-loathing liberal political correctness which values “diversity” more than truth.

The main stream media is perplexed. “How could such nice boys have lived here for so long, become radicalized and done this? How do we prevent this? How can we be safe?” They refuse to accept that Islam is incompatible with western society. Every Muslim is a “person of interest”. We will be safer once we accept the truth. The truth will set you free. We must profile these people. The nitwits in the media and political class must stop perpetrating the lie that Islam is a religion of peace.

The reason we are not safe is because our society operates in a fantasy perpetuated by a government sympathetic to a religion of death. How blind are we when the terrorists are identified two years in advance and we ignore it?1 How appropriate is it that the car that the terrorists hijacked had that familiar COEXIST bumper sticker? When will we wake up and realize that these people do not want to co-exist with us?

This week a friend of a friend commented on Facebook that “99% of the people of the world are good.” I had to remind him that there are millions of Muslims in the world who want us dead simply because we are Americans, Christians or Jews. He then equated radical Islam to the Westboro Baptists. There is no comparing radical Islam to any other religion (except perhaps Satan worship). I don’t recall the Westboro Baptists killing anyone. They may be intolerant bigots, but they are not murderers. The two don’t equate.

Our country would be safer if people paid more attention to Robert Spencer than Barrack Obama or Chris Matthews. You say, “Who is Robert Spencer?” Of course you wouldn’t know because his thorough efforts to document Islamic terrorism have been deliberately ignored by the media. If you want to know what these murderers are up to, you will be more informed by following Spencer’s Jihad Watch website than any newspaper or television station. The sheer volume of Islamic terrorism that has occurred since 9/11 will astound you.

A Comment by me, Jerry Broussard;

Isa 5:20-24

20 Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.

22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine
and champions at mixing drinks,
23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
but deny justice to the innocent.
24 Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw
and as dry grass sinks down in the flames,
so their roots will decay
and their flowers blow away like dust;
for they have rejected the law of the LORD Almighty
and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel.
NIV

Raping Arizona …

Posted by

… and the nation.

Last Saturday my wife and I were guests of Project Arizona, a group headquartered in Phoenix that is doing the Lord’s work when it comes to educating people on border security and immigration issues.

This is the first of a series on border security and immigration that I am putting up exclusively here at Joe for America.  Today’s installment will show you where we went and give you a firsthand account of what it’s like to live on the border with Mexico.  It will also reinforce why this information is critical right now.

I’ve never asked my readers to do this, but today I’m asking you to send a link to everyone you know with today’s installment and encourage them to follow the whole series.  This is an education you will not get anywhere else, certainly not in the major media and not in a condensed form even in the blogosphere.

Over the next week I’ll be covering the following…

  • Illegal immigration law in Arizona, specifically SB 1070 and how it SHOULD have been written.
  • Drug and immigration cartels.
  • The Fence.
  • The Numbers.  How many illegals are here and how many are coming across.
  • What is the Border Patrol doing and how effective are they?
  • How to stop the flow.
  • Gang of Eight Immigration Legislation, good or bad?

We need to get the word out and get people off the couch and activated if we’re going win this latest version of the amnesty war.  Byron York, in yesterday’s Washington Examiner, lays out the battle lines.

Organizing for Action, the activist group that grew out of President Obama’s 2012 campaign, plans what it calls a “major day of action” next month to gather support for the bipartisan Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill.

“This is a huge moment for President Obama,” said Emmy Ruiz, OFA’s immigration campaign manager, in an email sent to supporters of the Obama campaign Sunday. “The president made it clear last year that comprehensive immigration reform is a big part of his agenda — and we can help him keep that promise to the American people.”

Get the idea?  President Obama just took a major hit on the chin.  Don’t think for a minute that he’s down, he’s not.  His morphed campaign organization, OFA, will pull out all the stops to see that this bill is passed.  I can guarantee you they consider it a matter of life and death and we should as well.  Because it is.

I am not anti-immigration, and I don’t know anyone who is.  I am pro-legal immigration and the central point to my belief is that all immigration policy should benefit the United States of America.  I have no problem changing our existing policies to allow for increased immigration, but I have huge problem with rewarding law breakers and defacto punishing those who have been willing to follow the law.

What has illegal immigration done to my wonderful state of Arizona?  Well, here is a sign that stands about 30 miles south of Phoenix, about 100 miles north of the border with Mexico.

Immigration Danger Sign

You’ll see pictures not far from this sign in a coming installment that illustrates just how dangerous our desert has become.  This sign, by the way, is not out in the middle of a barren desert inhabited by snakes and Gila monsters.  It’s just a few miles away from cities where thousands of people – American citizens – live and work and it’s 100 miles north of the Mexican border.

So, if the area 100 miles north of the border is dangerous enough to put up a sign like that, what’s it like to live on the border?

We met with a group of residents of Cochise County – including County Sheriff Mark Dannels – to find out what it is like on the front lines.  I’ll talk more about that, but here’s a welcome letter one of our hosts read.

Our Tea Party and our community are grateful for your coming and listening to our stories and experiences.  It means so much to us that there are those who care and are willing to listen.  We see our friends, neighbors, children and grandchildren and want for them a safe environment.  A home that they can feel secure in, to live without having to check each room for intruders when they come home.  We do not want to live with news casts about tunnels under our border full of illegal drugs. We do not want to live with the pervasive flow of criminals and drugs through our community.

But my biggest fear is not intruders, drug runners or criminals, it is being forgotten.  It is after all the visits, all the speakers, all the talks that we will go back to our homes and our lives without knowing what affect our stories will have had or accomplished.  This is the third year the Palominas Tea Party has hosted these visits and we will continue to welcome those who come to hear our stories of how we cope with life on our unsecure border.  As long as you want to hear, we will tell our stories.  We have lived with home invasions, drug running, property damage, intimidation and even murders.  In response we are ignored, sued, called bigots, defamed and maligned.  Our homes are threatened and our mountain burned.

I know that none of you would be here if you did not care about this state and our situation.  Your concern is evident because you return year after year to listen and learn.  I believe it is time to turn this talk into mutual action.  I leave you with this question, How can we work together to accomplish our goal?

Thank you…

Welcome to the real world.  The assault on our southern border is increasing and despite assurances from Janet Napolitano, it is not secure and our towns and cities are not safe.

The picture John McCain, Jeff Flake and the rest of the Gang of Eight, along with the Obama Administration and the media, is painting is a lie, but what else would you expect from a Gang.

This series is a call to action and time is running out.  I trust you’ll find it informative, but we need to do more than “get informed.”  We need to act.  Today, you can reach out and get ten friends who are willing to find out what is really going on at our southern border and starting tomorrow you’ll have the ability to contact your Representatives and Senators directly from Joe for America.  We need to let them know that we won’t stand for amnesty.

Very Important Devotional by Dr. David Jeremiah

The Limits of God’s Patience
“He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever.” – (Psalm 103:9)
Recommended Reading Psalm 75:6-7; 6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still. 7 You alone are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry? (NIV)
Israel’s prophets brought comfort to the people during difficult times by reminding them, “[God] will not always strive with us.” That’s a comforting word, except that it is a reminder that, right now, God is striving with us! In other words, God’s patience has its limits. As He demonstrated with Israel over and over, at some point God stops waiting for people to repent by their own choice and He sends judgment.
There was a period in which the nation of Babylon was under God’s blessing — when the king, Nebuchadnezzar, repented of his pride (Daniel 4:34-37). But when a new king, Belshazzar, took the throne, Babylon changed. In a drunken orgy one night, Belshazzar brought out the sacred vessels that had been stolen from the temple in Jerusalem and used them to drink wine. To take and use the sacred vessels from a nation’s temple was a way to proclaim the impotence of the conquered god. The same is true when anyone flaunts or disobeys the laws of God.
God is holy and reserves the right to judge sacrilege, or any other sin, when repentance is absent.
“As we search the Scriptures, we must allow them to search us, to sit in judgment upon our character and conduct.” – (Jerry Bridges)

Americans ‘snapping’ by the millions

Exclusive: David Kupelian reveals record fear, stress, suicide – and inspired way out

http://www.wnd.com/2013/04/americans-snapping-by-the-millions/

author-image David Kupelian |David Kupelian is an award-winning journalist, managing editor of WND and editor of Whistleblower magazine. A widely read online columnist, he is also the best-selling author of The Marketing of Evil and How Evil Works.

Terrorism. Chaos. Fear of the future. In the age of Obama, America is undergoing a “fundamental transformation” – that much everyone knows.

But what few seem to realize about this transformation is that the sheer stress of living in today’s America is driving tens of millions to the point of illness, depression and self-destruction. Consider the following trends:

  • Incredibly, 11 percent of all Americans aged 12 and older are currently taking SSRI antidepressants – those highly controversial, mood-altering psychiatric drugs with the FDA’s “suicidality” warning label and alarming correlation with school shooters. Women are especially prone to depression, with a stunning 23 percent of all American women in their 40s and 50s – almost one in four – now taking antidepressants, according to a major study by the CDC;

By the way, things are no better over the pond – and may be worse, according to one major study that concluded almost 40 percent of Europeans are plagued by mental illness.

Note: This report is is excerpted from the April 2013 issue of WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “STRESSED AND DEPRESSED: The unreported health crisis of the Obama era.”

What on earth is going on? Why isn’t medical science – and for that matter all of our incredible scientific and technological innovations in every area of life – reducing our stress and lightening our load? Why doesn’t the almost-magical availability of the world’s accumulated knowledge, thanks to the Internet, make us more enlightened and happy? Why is it that, instead, more and more of us are so stressed out as to be on a collision course with illness, misery, tragedy and death?

Most important, what can we do to reverse course? Fortunately, amazingly effective help is available – but more on that later.

‘He wants people to snap’

“Life is difficult,” wrote psychiatrist M. Scott Peck at the outset of his international best-seller, “The Road Less Traveled.” Stress, difficulties, disappointments, accidents, disease, misfortune, cruelty, betrayal – they’re unavoidable in this life.

Yet, during eras when society and families are stable, unified and fundamentally decent and moral – as, say, America during the 1950s – the stress level for each person is minimized, or at least not compounded by a perverse society. Conversely, when – as is the case today – we have widespread family breakdown, a depraved culture that mocks traditional moral values, a chaotic economy and disintegrating monetary system and a power-mad government dominated by demagogues and sociopaths, the normal stresses of life are greatly multiplied.

Thus it has come to pass that America, long the hope of the world, has grown increasingly dispirited and angry, which in turn breeds anxiety, fear, confusion, hopelessness and depression.

After all, let’s face the hard facts: We just re-elected perhaps the worst president in history, someone manifestly obsessed with dismantling traditional, free-market capitalist America and transforming it into a socialist nanny state. That in itself is highly stressful – at least for the roughly half the population that still understands socialism always leads to a profound loss of freedom and prosperity.

Then there’s today’s relentless economic pressures: high unemployment (the actual rate is at least double that of the “official” government rate), foreclosures and bankruptcies, a stagnant growth rate, 11,000 new people signing up for food stamps every single day, rising taxes for the entire middle class whose net worth is simultaneously shrinking, ever-higher prices for food, gas and other essentials – and overshadowing it all, a galactic national debt burden, courtesy of a wildly out-of-control government unrestrained by either the Constitution or common sense.

That, too, is very stressful. Top it all off with an administration continually abusing the public for the sake of enlarging and consolidating its political power – for instance, by purposely making the “sequester” cuts hurt Americans, even our active-duty soldiers, as much as possible.

Make no mistake: This sort of stress on Americans is not only intentional on the part of Team Obama – it is strategic. Remember, these people are revolutionaries (that is, engaged in “bringing about a major or fundamental change,” as Merriam-Webster puts it) and utterly committed to replacing one societal structure – America’s constitutional, limited-government, free-enterprise system – with another – a socialist, wealth-redistributionist system run by an all-powerful government.

Such a radical change cannot be accomplished while Americans are calm, happy, content and grateful for their blessings. Citizens must be unhappy and stressed out. Indeed, widespread popular discontent has always been the required fuel for leftist transformation.

Just reading a few pages into Saul Alinsky’s notorious “Rules for Radicals,” one encounters repeated confirmation that the very key to radical “change” is keeping the populace angry, encouraging their grievances, stoking their resentments and making sure they are continually upset. That is the primary psychological dynamic of “community organizing” – and America today is led by community-organizer-in-chief Barack Obama, a long-time master practitioner and instructor in Alinsky’s neo-Marxist agitation methods.

Top radio talker Rush Limbaugh recently picked up on this normally unspoken aspect of Obama’s modus operandi: “I think he wants people to snap,” opined Rush. “I think Obama is challenging everybody’s sanity. Obama [is] literally pushing people to snap, attacking the very sanity of the country.”

Commenting on Obama’s sudden obsession with employing every means possible to deny law-abiding Americans their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms, Limbaugh exclaimed: “All of this is so in our face. Everything that people hold dear is under assault. Deliberately making people upset! This is not what presidents do.”

It’s not what presidents do – unless they happen to be leftist revolutionaries, in which case “deliberately making people upset” is precisely what they do to accomplish their intended “fundamental transformation.”

We need to realize that Americans could not have twice elected a leader as transcendentally unworthy of the presidency as Barack Obama without first having had their minds and hearts captured. Through constant leftist indoctrination, emotional manipulation, ruthless intimidation – and then being rewarded once they have “converted” – perhaps half of the American electorate has been programmed over the course of decades by a subversive school system and equally perverse “news” establishment. Truth be told, both institutions have become full-blown abominations, occupying as they do near-sacred stations of public trust in American civilization.

Of course, at the nuclear core of the myriad assaults on traditional America is the rejection (at least by society’s elites) of God and repudiation of the Judeo-Christian values that underpin Western civilization. This in turn has led to pervasive societal disintegration and a Pandora’s Box of almost unimaginable problems.

Unfortunately, despite our nation’s growing number of seriously troubled people, psychiatry provides little help. It has evolved in our secular, mechanistic culture to see virtually all mental, emotional and spiritual problems as genetic or physiological in origin. No longer is there any such thing as sin. Nothing is moral or spiritual. Good character, introspection, understanding, repentance and forgiveness, so vital to genuine healing, are now irrelevant. Just write a prescription.

Since the current research fad is to conclude (as the National Institute of Mental Health puts it) that “depressive illnesses are disorders of the brain,” psychiatry has come to rely heavily on altering our brain chemistry by (in the case of depression) tricking it into producing higher levels of neurotransmitters like serotonin and norepinephrine. But this forces us to ask an obvious question: What are you talking about? Do you really believe that the 23 percent of American women ages 40 through 59 currently on antidepressants ALL have defective or diseased brains?

Or, is it just possible that, rather than tens of millions of inexplicably damaged brains, much of today’s epidemic of “depression” and other “disorders” has a lot more to do with the prevalence of stress, pressure, confusion, cruelty, anger, injustice, temptation and corruption all around us – and our inability to deal with it without being infected and hurt by it?

Finding the way out

There are, of course, proven commonsense steps each individual can take to minimize the effects of stress. Chuck Norris’ personal list of “12 ways to avoid depression” is as good as any available online, and encompasses everything from diet and exercise to meditation and gratitude to God.

But boiling the matter down to core essentials, there are really three time-tested elements required for staying healthy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. They are:

1) A genuinely healthful diet: Newsflash – eating the wrong foods (or eating too much) causes huge problems. Obesity is not only stressful, but has myriad adverse health effects, including depression. Likewise, eating foods that are heavily processed, high-sugar, adulterated, chemicalized, processed, artificially flavored, colored, sweetened and preserved stresses both body and mind. As WND columnist and orthopedic surgeon Lee Hieb, M.D., puts it, “If my great-grandmother would not have recognized something as food … I don’t eat it.”

Mountains of research and dietary wisdom can be boiled down to this: Eat a variety of fresh, natural foods, especially vegetables and fruits and particularly lots of enzyme-rich raw foods. Fish and chicken are fine, so is red meat in moderation, same with dairy (eggs, milk and butter – not margarine), but buy natural/organic whenever possible.

2) Regular exercise: A good exercise regimen not only helps keep our heart (and the rest of us) healthy, it confers untold benefits, tangible and intangible – plus it is, all by itself, a major de-stressor! Again, WND columnist Chuck Norris, who as a six-time undefeated world karate champion (and reputedly the world’s toughest man) knows a little about exercise, says this: “Exercise is a cure for so many ills; depression is one of many. Exercise is so powerful on our mind that Men’s Health calls it the drug-free depression cure.” Enough said. Just do it.

3) Personal quiet time for prayer and reflection, allowing us the opportunity to seek the Creator’s will while letting go of accumulated anger, frustration and resentment toward others. (In other words, renewing our love for God and our neighbor.) Anger in all its forms has long been shown to be at the very root of many serious problems and illnesses, both physical and mental.

Pause button. One all-important point needs to be made here: It is not the stress itself that harms us, but rather, the way we overreact emotionally to it. And primarily, that reaction is one of resentment, either overt or subtle.

Grasping this often-overlooked fact leads directly to the bottom-line principle for successfully coping with stress, whether it’s related to money, work, health, relationships or trauma: Learn to calmly endure the stress (or as the Bible expresses it, “trials and tribulations”) with genuine patience and faith instead of anger and frustration, and an amazing thing happens: The stress, rather than making us sick and debilitated, actually serves to make us stronger, more at peace and more whole.

Help with this all-important facet of stress management comes, ironically, from the occupation Forbes calls the “most stressful job” in America – namely, the U.S. military.

Despite the tremendous ravages of war stress – 22 suicides per day among U.S. military veterans (on average) and an epidemic of post-traumatic stress disorder and other war-trauma conditions streaming out of Iraq and Afghanistan – a quiet revolution in overcoming stress is nevertheless unfolding within the military.

Like the constantly inculcated attribute of “resilience,” the military has also found the practice of “mindfulness” to be extremely helpful in overcoming stress. And the gold standard in this growing field is “Be Still and Know,” a simple and time-tested awareness exercise that been used in all five armed service branches for many years.

Currently relied on by tens of thousands of soldiers and veterans, “Be Still and Know” is the key ingredient included in a compact disc titled “Coping Strategies.” In essence, the 30-minute exercise helps users discover genuine patience, mental clarity and (a word the Founding Fathers used a lot) equanimity. It has been highly endorsed by both the U.S. Army’s chief of chaplains, Maj. Gen. Douglas L. Carter, who calls it a “great resource for our Soldiers,” and Col. John Bradley, M.D., long the chief of psychiatry at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

“Coping Strategies’” distributing organization, the nonprofit Patriot Outreach founded by U.S. Army Col. Antonio P. Monaco, offers the CD (or Internet download) free to all U.S. military personnel, veterans and family members upon request. It is also readily available to civilians, at a nominal charge to support the free grants to the military. Patriot Outreach’s program has been publicly praised by Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad as well as former GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rick Santorum.

Having written about “Coping Strategies” and the “Be Still and Know” exercise a couple of years ago, I recently checked in with a member of the Patriot Outreach team, Navy Vietnam veteran Lee Booton, for an update.

Booton, after experiencing a lot of combat, came home from Vietnam with a nice big fat case of post-traumatic stress disorder. (“In the middle of the night I was pounding on my wife, thinking I was still fighting the North Vietnamese,” he told me. “I felt horrible.”) Yet years later, when he was introduced to “Be Still and Know,” Booton knew it provided the answer he and other stressed-out soldiers were desperately seeking. Over the past five years, volunteering with Patriot Outreach, Booton has “met face to face with returning troops” and personally “handed out between 5,000 and 6,000″ of the “Coping Strategies” CDs to vets and encouraged others to download the exercises for free. (There are actually four exercises included in “Coping Strategies” – the main one, “Be Still and Know,” plus three others that focus specifically on “Overcoming Pain,” “Overcoming Fear” and “Overcoming Stress.”)

Does he ever hear back from the soldiers he helps? “Yes!” says Booton enthusiastically. “Sometimes they give me a big hug and say, ‘Boy, does that work,’ or ‘You helped save my life – this made it so much easier for me to deal day-to-day with all of my issues.’”

‘Cure stress’

“Be Still and Know” was developed by Roy Masters, who at 85 is the patriarch of stress experts, having taught this method since 1960 to millions, his fans including everyone from movie star John Wayne to Internet journalist Matt Drudge. He also hosts talk radio’s longest-running counseling show, “Advice Line,” on Talk Radio Network. The author of 18 books, Masters was featured on the Sean Hannity Show to discuss his newest book, “Hypnotic States of Americans.”

Recently, all four of the audio exercises on the “Coping Strategies” CD have been released in a new civilian version on a dedicated MP3 player called, “The Cure Stress Device.”

“In today’s high-tech, wireless world,” said Masters, “a little, self-contained audio device the size of a credit card seemed like the best delivery system possible.”

In a recent message he tweeted, Masters summed up more than 60 years of work in just 140 characters: “Learn to endure cruelty and injustice without resentment and after the stress has passed you will find the fulfillment you have been seeking.”

“Most stress,” explains Masters, “is simply cruelty, in one form or another, directed at us by other stressed-out human beings, who themselves have been victimized by cruelty and stress in their own pasts.

“Imagine, however, that someone said or did something cruel to you, but that you did not react in any way whatsoever – you did not become upset, resentful or even ruffled. You simply observed that this person was saying or doing something cruel, as though you were calmly observing the scene in a movie. You simply would not be stressed by what would appear to others to be a highly stressful encounter. Stress and cruelty affect us as profoundly as they do only because we react to them resentfully.”

The exercise works so well, he adds, because “it enables you to become objective, a little bit separate, detached and disentangled from all your troublesome thoughts, emotions, heartaches, fears and traumatic memories – and that, all by itself, is extremely helpful, and actually healing.”

‘You just be cool and calm’

“Stress” – our modern name for all the trials and tribulations the Good Lord in His wisdom deems necessary for us to grow in character and faith – is not the enemy. It is, however, the difficult but necessary part of life that tests us, proves us, and ultimately makes us better – or kills us.

Fortunately, in the loving sacrifice of his Son, not only did God make provision for the forgiveness of mankind’s sins, but He also gave us another priceless gift – the perfect example of how to deal with stress. Even while hanging on the cross in agony, Jesus did not resent his tormentors and even asked God to forgive them. That’s the essence of what we need to find.

In one sense, our task is simple: Since our past sins have been forgiven, and since the future is in God’s care alone, we just need to focus on discovering how to live right now, in this present moment, with faith, patient endurance and perfect integrity.

Now more than ever, it is essential that Americans get a handle on stress. The pressures of modern life are being greatly multiplied by the ever-present threat of terrorism and a socialist government that thrives on promoting everything dark, perverse and angry (and therefore stress-producing) in human nature. Remember, Winston Churchill called socialism “the gospel of envy.”

After Rush Limbaugh warned his listeners that Obama wants good Americans “to snap,” he added, good-naturedly: “You just be cool and calm. Everything’s going to be fine. I’ll tell you when it’s not.”

Indeed, to prevent Obama and company from completing their “fundamental transformation” of America, we are going to have to learn to stay cool, calm and collected – and not just on the surface, but deep down in our souls.

Know this: If you are upset at Obama and the maniacal left – if you’re angry, full of rage, feeling hopeless, frustrated, wanting to drop out, or wanting to lash out and act violently – believe me, that’s precisely what your adversary wants. Not only that, that’s how he wins, because when you’re upset and angry and overreacting – pardon me for putting it this way – you become stupid. That’s what’s wrong with the Republican Party. Its principles are magnificent (read the 2012 platform), but most of its leaders are intimidated by the ruthless Obama administration and the blatantly biased and abusive “mainstream media.” Thus, in their reactive, intimidated state of mind, they become ineffective, cowardly and contemptible (with a few notable exceptions, for which we are very grateful).

This is true not just of politicians, but all of us: No matter how smart, moral and right-thinking we might otherwise be, when we’re angry and upset we do not possess God’s grace, wisdom, courage and creative genius guiding our steps, and thus we are no match for the evil rising in America.

But if Americans would discover grace under pressure – hey, Ronald Reagan had it, why can’t we? – if enough of us found strength and resolve that were rooted, not in rage, but in righteousness and love of God and our neighbor, then nothing, and I do mean nothing, could stop us. Having regained our lost innocence, we would likewise see our beloved country restored to the noble land it once was.

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing,” James 1: 2-4 KJV.

The preceding is excerpted from the April 2013 issue of WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “STRESSED AND DEPRESSED: The unreported health crisis of the Obama era.”

It’s Time


By Jerry Broussard

1 Peter 4:12-19; 12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And,

“If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”  

19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. (NIV)

 

I am reluctant to start this observation with a litany of the ills of America and our society. Yet, based on recent voter turnouts, such a review is necessary;

  • Our Federal government has reached the “out-of-control” point with spending and debt. We are months, may be weeks, away from declaring bankruptcy. Some believe that the Obama administration is doing this deliberately in order to change our nation into a Western Europe Socialist nation.
  • The manufactured tensions deliberately created between rich and poor continue to rise to the boiling point. The self-appointed “Professional Pot Stirrers” are working overtime to bring about an all-out war between the “haves” and the “have-nots”. Adding to the flame is the Obama administration’s economic policies creating more and more people on the government dole, ensuring the Leftist voting base.
  • The manufactured tensions between the races (by the same source afore mentioned) is also reaching volatile levels.
  • Taking advantage of the chaos are the various terrorist groups knowing they have a sympathetic Obama administration that will not call “terrorism” what it is; Terrorism. President Obama has stated he does not want to “rush to judgment” on terrorist like the Boston bombers.
  • Unemployment continues to be a discussion instead of solution. Partisan politician’s think it more important to hang onto their stupid ideology instead of opening up the market place and let it heal itself.
  • Education continues its downward spiral as liberal theology continues its influence in how children are educated. These philosophers constant complaint is that we are not spending enough money on education and yet test scores continue to rank at the bottom of the world’s results.
  • Our society seems to be in an all-out sprint to become as corrupt as Sodom and Gomorrah. Leading the way are the homosexual activist demand for equal recognition in marriage, when all they really want is to shut the church up from teaching the truth about their abhorrent chosen lifestyle. By their side are the social-engineers recreating our nation into their own image.
  • There are so many more, but let us sum up this list with the motivation for this writing; The Evangelical Church in America seems to spending most of its time “Playing-Church”, than being the church.

The Apostle Peter wrote to the church in the last days of his life. Both letters are so rich with revelation truth, but for this discussion, let us focus on the scripture already introduced. It is time for judgment to begin with the House of God.

One of the admonitions we have from Jesus is found in Mark 9:50; “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.” When Jesus gave this admonishment, salt was primarily used as a preservative for meat. They did not have refrigeration to keep meat from spoiling so they would pack it in salt. Salt slows down the “putrefaction” process. Therefore Jesus’ admonition is for His Church, His followers, to be SALT inside the church as well as within society. If the church is walking in obedience of Jesus’ Word, being DOERS of the Word, not HEARERS ONLY (James 1:22-25), than His Church becomes a preservative in society, slowing down the putrefaction process. As it is, our society stinks, and the fault lies at the front door of the Church.

I am quick to point out that there are churches that are “BEING THE CHURCH”. Unfortunately, they are a small minority. God will always have His remnant, and that remnant is alive and well in America. I am talking about the rest of the churches that seem to be more interested in “Great-God-Entertainment” (what they claim to be worship time), than in being Salt and Light in their community. Here are some examples;

  • If we really have committed Evangelical Christians, than explain to me why we can only get 30 to 40% out to vote. Voting is one of the many ways to be SALT. Allowing the enemies of Jesus’ Church to reign speeds up the putrefaction process. Although it is not scripture, yet the proverb is important to heed; ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’ (English philosopher Edmund Burke); i.e., For Jesus’ Church to stop being Salt and Light.
  • In the late 70’s someone did a study and found that if (at that time) all the Evangelical churches would take four people in and take care of their needs, there would be NO ONE LEFT ON THE WELFARE ROLES.
    • Galatians 2:10 sums up the constant focus of the early church; Take care of the poor.
    • Remember Jesus’ description of Judgment Day recorded in Matthew 25:25-46? The sheep and the goats both observed the same needs of their society. The only difference between the sheep and the goats is that the sheep DO The Work of Jesus’ Church while the goats did nothing.
    • Government took control of education because Jesus’ Church allowed it to happen. The original schools of education, SET UP BY CONGRESS, was done on Sundays, thus we had Sunday school. That became weekly classes as teachers were trained, and children were taught the basics of reading, writing, math, history, government, the Constitution (along with the Federalist Papers), and scriptural truth learning how to be Christian citizens. I doubt if any college graduate today could pass a Sixth Grade Final given in those days in order to be admitted into High School.
    • Entertainment, the Arts, Science and more were all created and developed by committed Christians as God gifted them. Jesus’ Church has allowed the secular world to take them over and used as a force against Jesus’ Church.

I could go on and on, however, I hope you are getting the point.

What I have found to be true over the last 40 plus years of study is that there are two different Christianity’s at work in our world today. There is Christianity the religion, and the original Christianity that is Jesus’ Church; Christianity the RELATIONSHIP.

  • Christianity the Religion: Every bit as cold, dark, full of bondage as any other man made religion. This Christianity the political Left loves to berate. It has all the trappings of the real church, but as often rebuked by God, its motivations are all wrong. Its just religion. Not much different from idol worship and bigoted toward anyone who is not their denominational flavor.
  • Christianity the Relationship is just that; a personal relationship with God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus’ Church consist of individual believers who have openly admitted they are sinners in need of a Savior, repent of their sins, accepted Jesus as their PERSONAL Lord and Savior, and made Jesus the absolute Lord of their lives. Jesus’ Church are the DOERS, those who do not care about the persecution, but have laid down their lives to speak up and fight for what is right, just, “and of good report”. They are feeding the poor, clothing the naked, visiting the sick, in prison, involved in the community, and VOTING –VOTING – VOTING.

During one of God’s rebukes of His nation Israel, He is quoted as saying in Judges 10:14; “Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save you when you are in trouble!” (NIV) That rebuke is as applicable today as when God gave it back in Israel’s early development. They turned their back on God and His Word and went the way of the world. In today’s vernacular God said, “You created your gods (religion, lifestyle choices, politicians, political climate, economical disasters, strife between peoples and groups, schools that have failed, generations that have never heard the Gospel, terrorist gaining control of entire nations, unemployment, more poor today than ever in American history and so much more. Now, turn to those gods you have created and see if they can save you.”

Over the last 100 years, American society has proven what it can do. Disaster is the result. No matter how government tries to fix things, they only make them worse and more of our rights removed. We are getting further away from what our founders created because of hours of prayer, debate and the leading of God’s Holy Spirit.

I believe that judgment has begun with Jesus’ Church. In all of history, there has never been a time when we have been in need of revival than we are today. It is time for the Church to be the Church again. I am calling for all those of you who are Relationship Christians to join me in prayer, and then putting legs to those prayers and let us fight to get out country back.

Any takers?

Still Think Islam Is A Religion Of Peace? – You Won’t After Seeing This

david wood

While many in the media, including Fox News, CNN, the Washington Post and others, including politicians like Barack Hussein Obama and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) continue to promote the lie that Islam is a “peaceful religion,” Freedom Outpost is allowing David Wood of “Answering Muslims” to respond to their claims from the Qur’an, in context, to demonstrate the lie that is being perpetrated on the American people the Islam is a religion of peace. Many of my own friends think Islam is harmless, but the reality of the Koran’s teaching tells us something very different. If you have any doubts that Islam is not a peaceful religion, this short video clip should convince any thinking person to reconsider an evaluation of Islam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-SoXs-0_rHY

 Here’s one of David’s tweets to WhyIslam following the Boston Marathon bombing. David is calling into question the out right lying and deceptive practices of those in Islam in only revealing what they want to and then twisting even what they reveal to further their cause of jihad.

Wood puts in context the verse often cited by politicians and media pundits to affirm Islam is peaceful. They claim:

Qur’an 5:32 – For this reason did We prescribe to the children of Israel that whoever slays a soul, unless it be for manslaughter or for mischief in the land, it is as though he slew all men; and whoever keeps it alive, it is as though he kept alive all men; and certainly Our apostles came to them with clear arguments, but even after that many of them certainly act extravagantly in the land.

This is cited “to the children of Israel,” not to Muslims. In fact, it is taken from the Mishnah Sanhedrin, which reads, “Adam was created alone to teach you that if anyone destroys one life, Scripture reckons it as if he had destroyed a whole world; conversely, if anyone preserves on life, Scripture reckons it as if he had preserved a whole world.”

However, Muslims like Rep. Keith Ellison does not want to expose what is commanded of Muslims. He calls for context. So, Wood gives him context and here is what is in the very next verse, which is not about Israel, but about Muslims.

Qur’an 5:33 – The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.

You see my friends Islam quotes out of context the verse and applies something meant for Israel to themselves, but they never tell you what they are commanded to do and why.

Thank you David Wood for making this point! Absolutely brilliant!

Thank You British Press Editor


British newspaper calls Obama “ineffectual, invisible, the weakest president in history

obama-golf1-e1300795245701

by editor

Pip, pip, cheerio, chaps. Blimey, guv-nah! (Sorry, but that’s the best we can do at faking that language they speak in the United Kingdom).

The Express UK says what American newspapers are so hesitant to say, in an article entitled, “BARACK OBAMA: THE WEAKEST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY?”:

When the Brits said, “It’s tea time,” President Obama said, “Let’s play 18.”

INEFFECTUAL, invisible, unable to honour pledges and now blamed for letting Gaddafi off the hook. Why Obama’s gone from ‘Yes we can’ to ‘Er, maybe we shouldn’t’

Let us cast our minds back to those remarkable days in November 2008 when the son of a Kenyan goatherd was elected to the White House. It was a bright new dawn – even brighter than the coming of the Kennedys and their new Camelot. JFK may be considered as being from an ethnic and religious minority – Irish and Catholic – but he was still very rich and very white. Barack Obama, by contrast, was a true breakthrough president. The world would change because obviously America had changed.

Obama’s campaign slogan was mesmerisingly simple and brimming with self-belief: “Yes we can.” His presidency, however, is turning out to be more about “no we won’t.” Even more worryingly, it seems to be very much about: “Maybe we can… do what, exactly?“ The world feels like a dangerous place when leaders are seen to lack certitude but the only thing President Obama seems decisive about is his indecision. What should the US do about Libya? What should the US do about the Middle East in general? What about the country’s crippling debts? What is the US going to do about Afghanistan, about Iran?

What is President Obama doing about anything? The most alarming answer – your guess is as good as mine – is also, frankly, the most accurate one. What the President is not doing is being clear, resolute and pro-active, which is surely a big part of his job description.

Amazing, isn’t it, that people who have English as a second language would be able to state the situation so clearly

Chechen Jihadists and the Dangerous Lies of the Liberal Media

By / http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/2013/04/chechen-jihadists-and-the-dangerous-lies-of-the-liberal-media/

boston bombersLast week, I had a chance to speak with former Bush national security advisor, J.D. Crouch. He spoke about the War on Terror and said that former president George W. Bush wanted to take the war to the terrorists so that America would not have to become a police state to keep us secure.

We know how this turned out in the end, but this is a result of the enemy’s nature. They are not compartmentalized like soldiers on a battlefield. With Islam’s 1.8 billion world population, there is no way to know who is radicalized and who is not. In a just democratic melting pot, we do not know our enemies when we see them because profiling is an injustice according to progressive wisdom.

The media has not helped with this problem. Few media organizations want to discuss the fact that jihadists have been on a campaign to recruit naive American citizens to attack their own countries.

The liberal media was crawling all over this story hoping to be the first one to say that this was an attack caused by a white, disgruntled right wing conservative clinging to his guns and religion. It would have increased their dwindling ammo against the Right and this bomber would have become an example of how all of 2nd Amendment devotees were truly maniacs and dangerous to society. However, the truth is, it turned out to be the usual suspects, perhaps not usual as in Arab, but usual as in, Islamic terrorists.

So, are the two bombing “suspects” actually Islamic terrorists?

Let’s examine.

They hail from Chechnya, an Islamic nation that has recently sent fighters to join the Syrian wars. This nation is not far displaced from war and the two bombing suspects, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19 and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, are old enough to have seen much of it. During the 1990s there were two Chechen wars for independence against Russia, but since then there has been plenty of Islamic civil unrest.

Chechnya is a majority Sufi Islamic nation, but ultra-conservative Wahhabism has been gaining strength in recent years and sending a wave of violence and fear throughout Chechnya. Wahhabis believe in the literal interpretation of the Qur’an. The majority Wahhabi state of Saudi Arabia produced the 9/11 terrorists and Osama Bin Ladin. The Saudi government is also funding Wahhabi schools in the United States. This has been a concern of those following the issue, mainly because textbooks from the schools teach violent and racist Islamic doctrine.

Chechnya has been in a near constant state of strife for decades. The fact that two young Chechens could be influenced into fighting for jihad is not far fetched, it’s the most likely situation. Whether they were a part of the increasing Chechen Wahhabi problem or whether they were radicalized by the large influx of Islamic Afghan war veterans into Chechnya, there is no way they were anything but jihadists.

When is the Jihad over?

It would seem to many Americans that the jihadist movement has lulled, but the truth is in Europe there has been a dramatic increase in plots and attacks in the past two years. The U.S. media does not report this news.

This graph from StratFor shows that jihadist have actually stepped up their plots in Europe and have had several successful attacks on that front. Belgium police recently foiled a plot on March 26. The police discovered that the terrorist, Hakim Benladgem had a massive amount of arms and had to be apprehended away from his apartment to avoid a standoff like the deadly firefight that occurred in Toulouse, France when French police attempted to arrest Mohammed Merah.

Now that France is engaged in a war with Mali, it will increase radical ambitions. Though Americans have been keeping jihadists busy with a perpetual war, it has cost many American lives, destroyed morale at home and cost the United States nearly $1.5 trillion.

At the end of the day, the Boston Marathon bombers used crude materials, ones that people could get anywhere. With the immigration debate looming, perhaps we should consider what standards will be required to keep those types of people out of the country rather than banning pressure cookers. Hakim Benladgem, Mohammed Merah and the two Boston bombers were all foreigners to the lands they plotted against. Fully freezing immigration would be to our detriment, but there is probably a definite way to decrease accessibility to their targets, us.

Can Islamic Nations Really Be Our Friends?

When asked about the bombings in Boston, an Egyptian Islamic cleric had nothing but praise for the two men.

April 16, Tahir TV: “Obviously I do not know who carried out the bombings but if it was carried out by the mujahideen it serves as a message to the West: We are still alive, contrary to the message Americans want to send. They have not finished off the mujahideen. Not just the mujahideen of Al Qaeda, but the mujahideen all over the world.”

This cleric goes on to say that he wishes he could join his brothers in Al Qaeda. Here is the full video: <iframe width=”640″ height=”360″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/JrLsz-AIuzY?feature=player_embedded&#8221; frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>

While I often use the term radical to distinguish violent Muslims from ones that are not actively engaged in war, when it comes to a majority Islamic nation, there is no such thing as radicalization. Either they are following Islamic principles that preach war against the West, Christians and Jews or they are not following Islamic principles. With the Arab Spring delivering whole nations over to Islamists, the threat of terrorism in our cities will only grow as we continue to treat these nations as friends and ignore everything they are doing behind the scenes. The very least we can do is stop letting them into our country.

Have You Heard?


Church Defaced by Homosexuals Get’s Little News Coverage

St. Jude Catholic Church of the City of Westlake Village was defaced on Easter weekend. The following brief story appeared in the April 11, 2013 issue of The Acorn, a community newspaper that serves Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Oak Park, and Westlake Village in California:

“Vandals targeted the 32000 block of Lindero Canyon Road sometime between Fri., March 29 and Sat., March 30, authorities said.

“The graffiti included a reference to homosexuality, several four-letter words and a swastika, a source told The Acorn. One scrawl reportedly said, ‘God is gay.’”

The story got no attention outside the small communities mentioned above.

I happened to see the story because I was in the Los Angeles area for a business meeting and happened to pick up the community newspaper.

If some homosexual group had been the target of anti-gay graffiti, the story would have been carried by every news outlet. Hate crime charges would have been leveled against the perpetrators. Sensitivity training would have been demanded by homosexual groups across the country.

Any time someone makes a derogatory comment about homosexuality, the gaystapo goes into action. The media comply with front-page stories to insure that the person who said negative things about homosexuals never dares do it again.

The Huffington Post carries dozens of articles about politicians and Hollywood types that come out in favor of homosexual marriage. They want to continue to work in Hollywood. Their pro-homosexual stance is similar to what Rome demanded of its citizens.

As long as the people offered a pinch of incense to the Roman gods, they were permitted to worship their own god or gods. Consider this story about Polycarp who lived between AD 70 and 155:

“The emperors of Rome had unleashed bitter attacks against the Christians during this period, and members of the early church recorded many of the persecutions and deaths. Polycarp was arrested on the charge of being a Christian — a member of a politically dangerous cult whose rapid growth needed to be stopped. Amidst an angry mob, the Roman proconsul took pity on such a gentle old man and urged Polycarp to proclaim, ‘Caesar is Lord.”

“If only Polycarp would make this declaration and offer a small pinch of incense to Caesar’s statue he would escape torture and death. To this Polycarp responded, ‘Eighty-six years I have served Christ, and He never did me any wrong. How can I blaspheme my King who saved me?’ Steadfast in his stand for Christ, Polycarp refused to compromise his beliefs, and thus, was burned alive at the stake.”

People aren’t burned at the stake in America; they are burned by the media for any opposition to the gay agenda. At the same time, homosexuals are protected by the media when they attack people who oppose same-sex sex and homosexual marriage. Some of the attacks have led people to lose their jobs and even be sued for not complying to homosexual demands.

How Much Do You Know About Our Constitution?


Make Strong What Is Weak: America’s U.S. Constitution Education

By / http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/2013/04/make-strong-what-is-weak-americas-u-s-constitution-education/

strong“In questions of power let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution.” — Thomas Jefferson, The Kentucky Resolution, 1798

 

“Our Constitution professedly rests upon the good sense and attachment of the people. This basis, weak as it may appear, has not yet been found to fail.” — John Quincy Adams, Letter to William Vans Murray, January 27, 1801

For how long have we been complaining of the “dumbing down” of the public education experience? I can remember at least twenty years’ worth of wondering why our schools have done nothing to truly educate the children in its classrooms. When our children are not taught the truth about things in the U.S. Constitution, especially something as basic as their right to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to practice their religion, there’s something wrong with the school system.

Let’s not even start on what some college professors think about the Second Amendment.  They teach in grade schools lessons that would make most 2nd Amendment supporters run screaming from the room. If it’s not teaching them to think differently about their 2nd Amendment rights, it’s outright lying to them about their 2nd Amendment rights. Then there’s the apparent police state being established in public schools to make kids afraid of guns.

It is in this effort that the public schools have prevailed and loosened the “attachment of the people” to the U.S. Constitution and those of us who profess to love the Constitution — and all of the Amendments and freedoms that go with it — have failed the most. It wasn’t just the “dumbing down” of public education that was being accomplished. It was the redirection of the country via misinforming the populace of their constitutional rights, what they meant to their lives and how the U.S. Constitution made America the best country on earth to live, grow and die.

When my neighbor’s daughter told me in 2008 that America was a bad country and that we started wars all over the world I asked her which wars we started; name one. She could not. I asked her who told her that we started wars all over the world. She told me it was her teacher (a supporter of our current president). I challenged her to ask her teacher which wars America had started and to come back to me with a list. I have yet to hear from her. This is part of the pattern.

Teach the students that America is a horrible country, teach them about all of the bad things (slavery to suffrage; shootings of Martin Luther King, Jr., to Ronald Reagan; prohibition and the gangsters of that era to the dropping of nuclear bombs on Japan during WWII) and you have a twisted picture of America. Fail to teach them about the truths of what happens in other countries that are far worse and you have not just a twisted picture, but a deformity far beyond the recognition of truth, history, or fact. You also weaken the hold school children will have on their love of country and thus, on the Constitution. After all, if it weren’t for the evil men who wrote the evil Constitution in the way it was written (a black man counted in the census as 2/3 of a person, etc.) our country wouldn’t be able to be so bad. If we had a different form of government — say, for instance, if there were a king, or the “elites” ruled over us, or no rule of law at all — we wouldn’t be so bad. America would be better off.

As it is, even in college courses on the Constitution, the 2nd Amendment is not taught as it should be. Consider what the link states:

“Rarely do we focus predominantly on the text, on original meaning, on tradition, on constitutional structure, on claims of changed circumstances, and on other forms of interpretive argument. 3 We know that in reality, to practicing lawyers, the Constitution is indeed what the Court says it is. And influenced by this reality, we mostly teach and critique the Court’s pronouncements. Even when we ask our students to set aside the caselaw and return to first principles, they often find it hard to put the famous precedents out of their minds. [my italics]“

I ask you, how can the attachment of the people be strong enough to maintain our U.S. Constitution if even colleges are not teaching the “original meaning” or tradition or “constitutional structure”? Shouldn’t at least law schools focus on such?

If we had maintained our attachment to the U.S. Constitution and all that with it comes, would not we be more likely to be capable of the first quote: binding the power of man’s mischief down with the chains of the Constitution? Few of our children and grandchildren even know the U.S. Constitution and what it means to our country. How on earth is such ignorance going to stand them in good stead to go into the future without those of us who remember the Constitution there to help them stay free?

In the culture of “low information voters” who are more focused on Hollywood’s faces and factions, is there any way for our children to be capable of standing against the rise of tyranny in their ignorance; indeed, of even recognizing its rise? As it is, we have failed not just the next generation but generations to come for not teaching them what the Constitution is, how it matters in their lives and why we should hold strong to it and all that it means to us, to our country and to our posterity (as well as our prosperity). If we fail to recognize that now, it is not we who shall pay the price, but our grandchildren and their grandchildren, for America will be forever changed. Then they shall have the right — if they recognize it — to point the finger of blame at us.

Let us strive to change that surging tide. Start talking about the Constitution to your children and grandchildren. Tell them about the truths within it and what those truths mean to their freedom. Tell them about the lives of the Founders and talk to them about their sacrifices. Don’t just make it a one-time thing. Make it a regular feature of your relationship with them. Get them excited to learn about the true history of America. Make their attachment to the U.S. Constitution grow as they watch yours grow and flourish. Otherwise you will be the one to whom they can point and say, “Freedom? Nec habeo, nec careo, nec curo.” (I have not, I want not, I care not.)

Gosnell Trial Reveals Truth About Abortion

I am a political animal. I scour the news every day, reading numerous stories about foreign policy, social issues, war, domestic policy, and everything in between. I can’t help but be obsessed with the world of politics and the intrigue of it all. There are issues about which I am more passionate than others, such as immigration reform. But above every issue, there stands one that provokes me whenever the subject is brought up. When I get tired of fighting; when I become politically and socially lazy; all I have to do is think about this most precious issue, and I am lit up once again with a burning fire. That issue is abortion.

The Gosnell trial, and its subsequent media blackout, has brought much attention to the issue that has been debated for generations. I have written a lot recently about Gosnell, and I still have more to say. Today, I saw a bumper sticker that said: “Don’t like abortion? Get a vasectomy.” There is such a disconnect between what people think abortion is, and the actual nature of the procedure. Ask anyone on the street what the procedures are during an abortion, and they will likely stand in silence.

In an article for Slate, Matthew Yglesias says: “Banning late-term abortion reduces the quality of abortion providers…such bans would push the residual demand for late-term abortions out of high-quality channels and into sketchy and unsafe ones like Gosnell’s…Making it difficult to establish an above-board competitive marketplace with multiple legal providers of late-term abortion facilities ensures that the demand for the procedure will be pushed into low-quality channels. As you close the legal noose around remaining providers, you’ll more and more have a market served by dubious individuals and you’ll have a market that’s lacking easy access to information and alternatives.”

Mr. Yglesias speaks of abortion in such a clinical fashion that it seems as though it is a routine, above-board procedure. He writes about abortion from a distance; that is a massive problem. His clinical separation from the issue mirrors our own. We–due mostly to Democrat propaganda–have become so distanced from understanding the realities of the act of abortion that we can compartmentalize; shut away the gruesome facts, and go about our day as if nothing barbaric is going on just around the corner.

Yglesias speaks of abortion as we would speak about a supermarket chain, or a fast-food chain; as a business trying to compete in a capitalist country. He makes no effort to sketch an image for his readers regarding the wicked nature of abortion. Abortion–specifically late-term–is a form of Genocide. We are terminating a specific group of human beings for purposes of convenience. Roughly 94% of abortions are elective, rather than necessary for the safety of the mother.

The country stands in shock as we learn the disturbing details of the Gosnell trial: Severing spinal chords post birth, killing infants after they have taken their first breath, keeping infants in freezers. But what Americans don’t realize is that what Dr. Gosnell did is almost identical to what is done legally during routine mid and later-term abortions. He simply delayed the slaughter by seconds. He is deemed a monster, but other abortion providers, like Planned Parenthood, are praised for their efforts to protect the “rights of women.” The inconsistency is maddening.

We cannot look at abortion clinically; we cannot compartmentalize anymore; we have to see the truth. The following pictures represent the practice of abortion in a real way. I hope these images disturb, because that is what needs to happen in order that we, as a society, may wake up.

Best speculation of those responsible for the bombing


BOSTON MASSACRE 2013

New suspect in Boston bombing: North Korea

Pyongyang’s history includes terror proxies, links to al-Qaida

Published: 1 day ago

author-image F. Michael Maloof http://www.wnd.com/2013/04/north-korea-linked-to-marathon-bombing/

F. Michael Maloof, staff writer for WND and G2Bulletin, is a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense.
NorthKorea64

WASHINGTON – The Boston Marathon bombing that killed three people and wounded more than 180 was on the same day as the 101st anniversary of the birthday of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, raising questions among analysts whether Pyongyang, as in some of its past terrorism, used proxies to carry out the attack in the U.S.

North Korea in recent weeks has been threatening the U.S. with attacks, including a pre-emptive nuclear strike. Pyongyang also has a history of committing terrorist attacks without taking credit for them.

President George W. Bush removed North Korea from the U.S. terrorist list as a compromise to the Hermit Kingdom to halt its missile and nuclear weapons development programs.

But a number of analysts say there is a history of a relationship between North Korea and al-Qaida, which raises further concerns since at least one of the two bombs exploded in the Boston Marathon attack Monday used a pressure cooker loaded with ball bearings and nails, which accentuated a low-yield explosive.

Pressure-cooker bombs for years have been used by Islamist militants in Afghanistan and Iraq against U.S. troops.

Calls by WND to the FBI to comment on this prospect were not returned.

Instructions to make pressure-cooker improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, are well-documented in al-Qaida’s first volume of Inspire magazine, which was published in the summer of 2010.

Written by “The AQ Chef,” the article is titled “Make A Bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom.” The detailed instructions show how to use off-the-shelf kitchen ingredients to make a powerful pressure-cooker bomb.

The North Korea-al-Qaida relationship has been known to U.S. intelligence officials for years.

In 2010, for example, a U.S. intelligence report released by Wikileaks stated that in November 2005, then-al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden’s financial adviser flew to North Korea from Iran. In that meeting was Hezb-Islami party leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who for years has been in Afghanistan killing U.S. troops.

They had gotten together to negotiate the purchase of ground-to-air missiles from North Korea.

“While in North Korea,” the U.S. intelligence report said, “the two confirmed a deal with the North Korean government for remote controlled rockets for use against American and coalition aircraft.”

The report went on to say that the shipment of the weapons was expected beginning in 2006.

In 2007, there was a separate report that a CH-47 Chinook helicopter was downed by a missile.

“The impact of the missile projected the aft end of the aircraft up as it burst into flames followed immediately by a nose dive into the crash site with no survivors,” according to a May 30, 2007, intelligence report also leaked by Wikileaks.

The Inspire magazine article, which went into considerable detail on how to make a pressure-cooker bomb, was meant to provide instructions at home instead of “risking a dangerous travel abroad.”

“Look no further,” it said, “the open source jihad is now at hands reach.

“The open source jihad is America’s worst nightmare,” the magazine warned.

The magazine asked the question, “Can I make an effective bomb that causes damage to the enemy from ingredients available in any kitchen in the world?

“The answer is yes,” it said.

The magazine pointed out that ingredients are readily available.

“Buying these ingredients does not raise suspicion,” it said. “It is easily disposed of if the enemy searches your home. Sniffing dogs are not trained to recognize them as bomb making ingredients. In one or two days the bomb could be ready to kill at least 10 people. In a month you may make a bigger and more lethal bomb that could kill tens of people.”

Many details remain unclear, but it appears no TNT, C4 or other high explosives were in the Boston Marathon pressure-cooker bomb.

Inspire magazine gave instructions on a mechanical explosion using a flammable material which, when ignited within a confined space, causes great pressure.

It could be gunpowder, or, as instructions in Inspire magazine point out, a mixture of two ingredients of shavings from matchheads and sugar that would go into the preparation of the explosive substance.

The substance then would be placed in the pressure-cooker or an iron pipe, using the head of a lamp as an igniter, along with an electricity source – a 9-volt battery – along with a basic clock with its minute hand wired to touch a pre-positioned nail to detonate the device.

Could the Crazy Left Be Right?


So many of the Crazy Left have been wondering if those responsible for the Boston Bombing are angry white people. These “Pot Stirrers” hint at these white people could be conservatives, Evangelical Christians, Tea Party members or Pro Lifers. Maybe, just maybe, could these angry white people be OCCUPIERS?

Who demonstrates with anger and trashes other peoples property? Who throws things at police and starts fires? With the Crazy Left calling these OCCUPIERS “Freedom Fighters”, is it within the realm of probability that these OCCUPIERS are capable, and much more like their 60’s counterparts, and willing to kill and mutilate innocents to make their point?

Trial of a Monster


The Kermit Gosnell Infanticide Trial In A Nutshell

kermit-gosnell-graphic

A couple of weeks back I wrote on the Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist who is justifiably on trial for the murder or born babies by severing their spinal cord with a pair of scissors. That report was just prior to arguments from Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow who argued in favor of infanticide on behalf of the taxpayer funded organization that assists in the murder of thousands of children every year in America. In wanting to keep this news out in the public consciousness, I’m providing an updated recap of just what you need to know in the Kermit Gosnell trial.

Kristan Hawkins of Life News gives a complete rundown:

1) A young woman who worked at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion clinic as a teenager testified that she saw a baby’s chest move even after the gruesome snipping procedure Gosnell used to end the baby’s life. “The chest was moving,” she testified. The baby was so large that another worker even took a cellphone picture of it. Prosecution experts, based on the picture, say the baby was well past 24 weeks, the legal limit for abortion in Pennsylvania.

2) Another former employee described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion. “I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” he testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

3) Stephen Massof, who does not have a medical license, described how he jabbed medical scissors into the backs of babies’ necks to kill them. He assisted Gosnell in “snipping” the spinal cords of babies, calling it, “literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.”

4) According to a news report, Massof told the jury that women were often given drugs to speed up delivery of the baby so the abortion/infanticide could take place: He testified that at times, when women were given medicine to speed up their deliveries, “it would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.”

5) One day after a former employee described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion, another worker at the Kermit Gosnell “House of Horrors’ abortion clinic testified that she saw a baby “jump” when she snipped her neck in an abortion. “It jumped, the arm,” she said, showing the jury by raising her arm.

6) Another Gosnell clinic worker testified that she took photos of one particularly large baby, referred to by prosecutors as “Baby A,” with her cell phone that was estimated to be about 30-weeks gestation. Baby A had been delivered alive into a toilet where she cut the baby’s throat.

7) Baby A was described as being so large that his feet and arms hung out over the sides of the shoebox they put him in. Gosnell actually joked about the baby’s size saying, “This baby is big enough to walk around with me or walk me to the bus stop.”

8) Prosecutors have cited the dozens of jars of severed baby feet as an example of Gosnell’s idiosyncratic and illegal practice of providing abortions for cash to poor women pregnant longer than the 24-week cutoff for legal abortions in Pennsylvania. In her opening statement to the Common Pleas Court jury, Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore mused that the jars of feet were some kind of bizarre “trophy” Gosnell kept.

9) Gosnell’s sister-in-law testified that it was it was part of her cleaning duties to dispose of the large bottle on the suction machine that would fill with blood and fetal remains. She would pour the blood and baby parts into the sink and grind them up using the garbage disposal.

10) It was revealed that on the night patient Karnamaya Mongar died the emergency exit was found to be locked and down a hallway crammed full of broken office furniture and other debris. Workers could not find the key as emergency personnel sought a way to get their Code Blue patient out of the facility and into an ambulance.

The complete Grand Jury testimony is replete with devastating and nauseating details of what took place and the callous nature in which these murders were conducted.

For those that think issues like this are irrelevant, may I suggest you check your morality? Furthermore, this is merely that extension of what abortion is all about. For these children were alive long before they were “born” into the world. Passing through the birth canal does not give one life. It merely allows one to breathe air and separate from their mother’s womb. We have allowed this repulsive behavior for far too long in America at the cost of millions of lives as the propaganda of “women’s health issues” continues its drumbeat.

My hope is that justice would be served in this instance as a warning and a step forward against the murderous inclinations of those who oppose life and family in favor of “free sex” and a “do what you want to do without consequences” crowd and the “doctors” that carry out their blood thirstiness.

Homosexual activists are lying about their radical political agenda.


Homosexual Activist Admits True Purpose of Battle is to Destroy Marriage

Homosexual Activist Admits True Purpose of Battle is to Destroy Marriage

Written By Micah Clark   |

Even knowing that there are radicals in all movements, doesn’t  lessen the startling admission recently by lesbian journalist Masha Gessen.  On a radio show she actually admits that homosexual activists are lying about their radical political agenda.  She says that they don’t want to access the institution of marriage; they want to radically redefine and eventually eliminate it.

Here is what she recently said on a radio interview:

“It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. …(F)ighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie.

The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist. And I don’t like taking part in creating fictions about my life. That’s sort of not what I had in mind when I came out thirty years ago.

I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three… And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”

For quite some time, the defenders of natural marriage have attempted to point out that the true agenda behind the homosexual demands organizations is not marriage equality; it is the total unraveling of marriage and uprooting traditional values from society.  (This will ultimately include efforts to silence and punish some churches that openly adhere to their religious teachings about marriage and sexual morality.)

While few have been as vocal as this lesbian activist was in this interview, we do have numerical examples proving her point.  When given the opportunity to marry, after laws have been struck down relatively small percentages of homosexuals actually bother to marry compared to their heterosexual counterparts.  This raises question about the true need to unravel marriage for the “fair” extension its benefits.  Only 12 percent of homosexuals in the Netherlands marry compared to 86 percent of their heterosexual peers.  Less than 20 percent of same-sex couples already living together in California married when given the chance in 2008.  In contrast, 91 percent of heterosexual couples in California who are living together are married.

Clearly this is about cultural change and tearing down the traditional family ethic, since it seems that most homosexuals living together neither need nor desire to marry, though they do desire to radically change marriage.

Gays and lesbians are free to live as they choose, and we live in a society which roundly applauds them doing so like never before in our history, but they do not have the right to rewrite marriage for all of society.

The Left Are Unmasking Themselves


Post Boston Bombing: Idiocy and Illumination

By / http://clashdaily.com/2013/04/post-boston-bombing-idiocy-and-illumination/2/

417px-Chris_Matthews_2011_ShankboneWith purposely gleeful righteous indignation, the blame game began almost immediately yesterday. How disheartening to hear political pundits, talking heads, and media figures offer their opinions as fact. Speculative journalism is the norm these days, though. The words “vet” and “verify” appear to have been stricken from either usage or practice.

Chris Matthews made his opinion pretty clear.

Well, Michael, tax day today. That came up. You know, I was thinking of all the iconic events that are being told about today. Of course I knew it was tax day because I got them in. But of course, it’s Patriots Day. It’s also the Boston Marathon. And would you as an expert be thinking domestic at this point? I don’t think tax day means a lot to the Arab world or Islamic world or certainly not to al Qaeda in terms of their world. It doesn’t have iconic significance.

Wolf Blitzer was full of speculation.

”It is a state holiday, in addition to the Boston Marathon. It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today called Patriots Day, and who knows if that has anything at all to deal — to do with these, these twin explosions.”

Michael Moore’s tweets were deemed “cryptic.” Not really.

“2+2=”

“Tax Day. Patriots Day”

“This is the anniversary week of the Columbine massacre, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Virginia Tech massacre, the Bay of Pigs, and Waco.”

Meanwhile, hundreds of law enforcement officers from the Boston PD, Massachusetts State Police, the FBI, and the ATF were descending on Boston. While these idiots were safely behind their computers or teleprompters, those with actual knowledge were just getting to work.

According to Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, the crime scene stands at roughly 12 blocks. Wrap your head around that. About 60 football fields. Full of potential evidence. Every bag, every piece of paper or trash, every vehicle a possible clue to be investigated. Figure in the thousands of runners, volunteers, race watchers, people in nearby businesses working or consuming. It’s no wonder Commissioner Davis called it the largest and most complex crime scene in Boston history.

Yet The Michael Moores and Chris Matthews of the world had it all sewn up in little more than a few hours. I know two guys that spent the weekend watching reruns of CSI and Law & Order!

Even if they end up right, do they “win?” 173 people have been physically injured, 17 critically so. Three have been murdered, including eight year-old Martin Richard. We’re talking about horrifically injured people whose lives have forever changed. Thousands of witnesses who, while perhaps not physically damaged, will live with the emotional scars for the rest of their lives.

So you tell me, Chris Matthews. If you’re right, what do you want? A pat on the back? And what if it’s a foreign terrorist? Does that change the outcome? Are people any more or less damaged by this incredibly cowardly act? Did your speculation help or harm? Is it even accurate? Does that matter to journalists anymore?

Did your tweets have a ring of truth, Michael Moore? Or is it merely publicity you’re after? Perhaps you wanted a mention in the evening news or a catchy Twitter hash tag? (#bumblingidiot is available. I’m just

As for me, I will not use several hundred words to play armchair detective. Instead, I will share the words of every day citizens. They don’t have talk shows or sidekicks. They don’t dominate the airwaves with politically motivated verbal sewage. Only love. Love for their fellow man or for a city or for running. They don’t care about proving who did it more than offering prayers and support.

800px-Patton_Oswalt_by_Gage_Skidmore_2

In times of great tragedy, we sometimes reach out to those we love. Those we may have not spoken to in a while or mend bridges that may have been broken. Always giving thanks for what we have. “Today I am most thankful for…”

–Duran Martinez

“Boston Bombings…Moments like these, as TERRIBLE as they are, don’t show our weakness, but our strength as a nation!!” – Dawn Younge

And finally, the words of Patton Oswalt, simply and beautifully put.

If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in a while, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evildoers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”

Two sets of Statistic Studies that are very important and eye opening.


A recent “Investor’s Business Daily” article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:

             U.S.                    65%

             England              46%   

             Canada              42%  

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:   

             U.S.                     93%   

             England              15%   

            Canada               43%  

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:   

             U.S.                     90%   

             England              15%    

             Canada               43%  

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:   

             U.S.                     77%   

             England               40%   

             Canada               43%   

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:   

             U.S.                   71   

             England             14   

             Canada              18  

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in “excellent health”:   

             U.S.                    12%   

            England               2%   

             Canada               6%  

And now for the last statistic:  

            National Health Insurance?   

             U.S .                 NO  (until ObamaCare goes into effect)

             England            YES   

             Canada             YES   

            Check this last set of statistics!!   

The percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You do know that the private business sector is a real-life business, not a Government job. Here are the percentages.  

            T. Roosevelt………………. 38%   

            Taft…………………………… 40%  

             Wilson ……………………… 52%  

            Harding……………………… 49%   

            Coolidge……………………. 48%   

            Hoover……………………… 42%   

            F. Roosevelt………………. 50%   

            Truman……………………… 50%  

            Eisenhower……………. …. 57%  

            Kennedy……………………. 30%  

            Johnson…………………….. 47%  

            Nixon………………………… 53%  

            Ford………………………….. 42%  

            Carter……………………….. 32%   

             Reagan……………………… 56%  

            GH Bush……………………. 51%   

            Clinton ……………………… 39%  

            GW Bush…………………… 55%   

            Obama……….. ………. 8%  

This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration:

Only 8% of them have ever worked in private business! That’s right!  Only eight percent—the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big Corporations how to run their business?   

How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And when it’s the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers?  They’ve spent most of their time in academia, Government and/or non-profit jobs or as “community organizers.”  They should have been in an employment line.   

Pass this on because we’ll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media.

The Persecution Has Begun


CNN Analyst Suggests ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Could Be Behind Boston Bombing

By Matt Hadro |

[UPDATE BELOW] CNN’s national security analyst Peter Bergen twice suggested that “right-wing extremists” could be behind Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings. Yet over an hour later, CNN reported that Boston Police were not holding anyone in custody as a suspect for the attack.

Appearing on CNN’s live coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing with host Jake Tapper, Bergen was asked to explain if the bombing could have been an act of terror. Bergen answered in the affirmative, and proceeded to name possible suspects depending on the type of explosive used. [Transcript below. Audio here. Video below the break.]

Who were Bergen’s suspects? Al Qaeda and “right-wing extremists.”

[UPDATE: 4/15/13 5:04 p.m. EDT] Peter Bergen again tossed out the idea that a “right-wing extremist group” could have carried out the bombings.

“I think the actual – the constituency inside the bomb will make a big difference about how we identify the person who did this,” he explained at the end of CNN’s 4 p.m. ET hour of live coverage. The perpetrators “could be a right-wing extremist group,” Bergen insisted, if the matter inside the bomb was not hydrogen peroxide, which he said is a “signature” of an al Qaeda attack.

CNN
THE LEAD
4/15/13
[4:19 p.m. EDT]

JAKE TAPPER: Peter, does this – obviously we don’t want to speculate. We don’t know what this was. But is there reason for people who deal in counter-terrorism to think that this is an act of terrorism? Or suspect it strongly, at least?

PETER BERGEN: Sure. Although I’m reminded of Oklahoma City which was a bombing, which was initially treated as a gas explosion. So first reports are often erroneous. But the fact that there were two explosions – two bombings – one of the things I’d be looking at is once the device, if it is a device, is found, what kind of explosives were used? For instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, this is a signature of al-Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get a hold of now, that might be some other kind of right-wing extremists. We’ve seen a number of failed bombing attempts by al-Qaeda using bombs, (Unintelligible) and for instance, the Manhattan subway in 2009, Faisal Shahzad in 2010, the attempt to bring down Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit in 2009. But we’ve also seen other extremist groups, right-wing groups, for instance, trying to attack the Martin Luther King parade in Oregon in 2010.

(…)

[4:59]

TAPPER: And Peter, what are you waiting to hear for – hear about in these coming hours?

BERGEN: I think the actual – the constituency inside the bomb will make a big difference about how we identify the person who did this. Or the persons who did this. Because if it’s hydrogen peroxide, that puts (Unintelligible). If it’s something else –

TAPPER: Could be a different –

BERGEN: – could be a right-wing extremist group. Or some other group.

A Note From Me – Jerry Broussard

The Army’s training course identifying possible terrorist as Evangelical Christians has raised it’s ugly head with Peter Bergen’s comments. Be aware. It is only going to get worse.

Remember Jesus’ words; Matt 24:9-13; 9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10 At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11 and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
NIV

John 15:18-25; 18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin. Now, however, they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them what no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. But now they have seen these miracles, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’
NIV

Please Join Me in A Moment of Prayer


Heavenly Father, in the mighty Name of Jesus our Lord and Savior, we come before you to lift up the people of Boston, the runners participating in the race, the responders and health care professionals. We ask in Jesus Name that You flood Boston with Your Grace, Comfort and mercy. Please put a hedge of protection around the police that are investigating this and keep them from all harm. Open the eyes of their understanding so they can see clearly the evidence they are collecting so that those responsible for this tragedy are brought to justice.”

“Lord Jesus, we acknowledge that You are our healer, and “…by Your strips we are healed”. We prayer Your healing power flood every hospital and keep any more victims from dyeing as a result of this attack.’

“Heavenly Father we also pray by Your Spirit that you surround the families of the victims with Your Comfort and Love.’

“We thank You for hearing our prayer, in Jesus Name, Amen.”

Mr. President. The Second Amendment is About Fighting Tyranny. Leave it Alone.


Showing Us Who He Really Is

By / http://girlsjustwannahaveguns.com/2013/04/showing-us-who-he-really-is/

 

mask“How easy it is to abuse truth and language, when men, by habitual wickedness, have learned to set justice at defiance.” — Thomas Paine, “Common Sense on George III’s Speech”, 1782

“An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma. To begin with, he does not have a fixed truth — truth to him is relative and changing; everything to him is relative and changing. He is a political relativist.” — Saul D. Alinsky, Rules For Radicals, 1971

As many of us know, the President is one of the most ardent followers of Saul Alinsky. For both, the truth is relative. Consider what the President said earlier this month in his speech in Colorado:

“And so we’ve seen enacted tougher background checks that won’t infringe on the rights of responsible gun owners, but will help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.”

Conveniently wrong, but truth is relative.

In the same speech he says,

“Over the past 20 years, those background checks have kept more than 2 million dangerous people from buying a gun.”

If that mattered a hill of beans to him why has his administration prosecuted only 44 “of the 15,700 fugitives and felons who tried to illegally purchase a firearm” in 2010 alone?

During the 2008 elections, in a comment about the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, he said that he believes:

“‘[T]hat the Constitution confers an individual right to bear arms. But just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right.’”

I’m sorry. If he admits that the “Constitution confers an individual right to bear arms” isn’t the next part of his statement a bit contradictory with the rest of the Second Amendment’? You know, that part that says “shall not be infringed? Either we have the full right, un-infringed or we do not have it at all. It’s not a half and half thing. (And since when did our rights get “conferred” upon us? Those delineated in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights come from GOD as the Founding Fathers acknowledged.)

The Founding Fathers, in backing the Second Amendment said things like,

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”

That’s Alexander Hamilton, who later added,

“If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government.”

Sounds to me more as if the Founding Fathers — and the words they chose — meant for the people to be able to defend themselves against the government! That’s who “the representatives of the people” are: the President, the House and Senate, the Courts and the State and local governments. So the President’s assertions that it “does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right. [my italics]” is not just wrong, it’s in direct opposition to what Alexander Hamilton and other Founders have said!

Now the President is using the Sandy Hook massacre to further his cause via using the parents as backdrops, and one of them taking his place in the weekly radio address (and traveling at our expense to do his bidding). Their grief, difficult as it is to say anything negative about it, is being used to stoke fear into the hearts of the rest of us. It happened to their children. It could happen to ours. Thus, “gun control” must be the answer. We must take the guns away from everyone.

No. They don’t start there. They start with alleged “assault rifles” and high capacity magazines, then they go to other weapons and their ultimate goal: no one will have guns but the government. (Oh, and the people they say can have guns: celebrity body guards, gangsta-rappers; you know. People who need them.)

The President using fear — and, yes, grief — to try to control those who do not know their rights, do not think for themselves, do not do their own investigating of the facts, is (to me) despicable. He’s relying on the least informed, least educated and weakest of us to be able to control the rest of us, pitting one set against the other. Divide and conquer is his forte and he has used it for quite a while now. No, I’m not saying the parents of Sandy Hook are the least informed, etc. I’m saying that the parents’ loss is being used against those who are least informed, etc.

When a President uses tragedies of the Sandy Hook sort to start the process of disarming the people he has an agenda that cannot be good for the people. When he uses a tragedy like Sandy Hook’s parents’ loss as a backdrop and a selling point, he’s selling fear. When he uses fear…

“Fear is the foundation of most governments; but it is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men in whose breasts it predominates so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it.” — John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776

He tells us who he really is.

According the Homeland Security Christians Are Now Terrorist Threats


As Homeland Security is focusing on Christians, as Doug Giles expounds on in his article displayed below, Two bombs go off in Boston killing and wounding American Citizens. Feeling safe? – Jerry Broussard

I Went to Bed a Christian and Woke Up a … Terrorist?

By /http://clashdaily.com/2013/04/i-went-to-bed-a-christian-and-woke-up-a-terrorist/

Screen Shot 2013-04-14 at 4.19.41 PMAccording to the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, evangelical Christians are now a national security threat. I’m talkin’ at the top of the list folks. As Gomer Pyle used to say, “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise” eh, Christians?

Under the New Rules enacted by these agencies under this administration’s tutelage the following acts are now to cause red flags of “terrorism” to fly, alerting cops and military personnel to a new group[s] which could start blowing crap up like the other group that we can no longer speak the truth about.
So, herewith, I guess, are some of the characteristics of the “newfangled” terrorists in the United States of Statism.

· If you enjoy singing How Great Thou Art and Amazing Grace – you might be a terrorist. · If you say “bless their heart” after you hear that someone did something really, really stupid – you might be a terrorist.
· If you believe Jeremiah was a prophet and not a bullfrog – you might be a terrorist.
· If you feel obligated to say you’ll pray for someone after you’ve gossiped about them – you might be a terrorist.
· If you watched The Bible on the History Channel and thought it was badass – you might be a terrorist.
· If you believe it’s wrong and ungodly to hijack airplanes and jam them into skyscrapers full of innocent people – then you might be a terrorist.
· If you think Billy Graham has been a great gift to our nation – you might be a terrorist.
· If you celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter – you might be a terrorist.
· If you made the day you got saved your birthday on your Facebook page verses the day you actually popped out of your mama’s bottom – you might be a terrorist.
· If you give money towards the preaching of the gospel and to works of charity – you might be a terrorist.
· If you love your neighbor as yourself – you might be a terrorist.
· If you recognize, appreciate and wish to pass on to the next generation America’s godly heritage – you might be a terrorist.
· If you like the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and the Bill of Rights – you might be terrorist.
· If you have Jesus Take the Wheel on your iPod – you might be a terrorist.
· If as a single man, you have told a homely single lady that, “all you’re looking for is a godly woman and that you don’t care that she’s not attractive.” – you might be a terrorist.

· If you believe Jesus is Lord and not the state – you might be a terrorist.
· If you raise your kids to be productive, independent and righteous kids who love God and our country and not be narcissistic entitlement hookers – you might be a terrorist.
· If you believe love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs and does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth – you might be a terrorist.
· If you believe the Golden Rule is a pretty legit tenet to live by – you might be a terrorist.
· If you have a fish sticker on your mini van – you might be a terrorist.
· If you take umbrage that you would get pitched as a terrorist because all of the aforementioned Christian stuff – well … you might be a terrorist.

Yes my brethren, your love for God and country has caused thou to be deemed a menace to our national progress at least as the Leftists’ deem progress. Congratulations.

On April 4th 2013 we found out that an Army Reserve Training Brief put Evangelicals on the top of the danger list as religious extremists. They put us sola fide boys and girls above Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. To these wizards, Billy and his son Franklin Graham are way scarier than Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his ubiquitous murderous ilk.

Oh, I almost forgot. This brief also crapped on Catholics and Jews. Yes, you too are terror threats to our country according to someone somewhere inside the beltway. I wonder who would be churning out such nonsense like this? Hmmm.

Indeed, according to “them” we must forget the fact that it’s been nutty Muslims that have terrorized us for the last couple of decades and that it’s been radical leftists that have aggressively eroded our constitutional liberties. Parts of our armed forces and police departments have been told to just white all that stuff out and believe that it’s guys like Chuck Norris who are the real hazard that our cops and our military need to be concerned about.

Welcome to the jungle.

 Note to Liberals: America’s Founders Were Christians

Written on Friday, April 12, 2013 by

Screen shot 2013-04-12 at 11.06.33 AM

After spending 36 years in higher education as a professor and administrator, I grew accustomed to hearing liberals tell one of their favorite lies: America’s founders were not Christians. I don’t know what it is about Christians that liberals find so frightening that they feel compelled to adopt a position blatantly at odds with the historical record. However, my experience in higher education leads me to believe that anti-Christian liberals think they can get away with such rhetorical perfidy because they are typically speaking to people who simply do not know their American history or, worse yet, have been so thoroughly indoctrinated in the public schools they don’t even care to know it. I taught hundreds of college students over the years—public school graduates—whose attitudes toward the religious beliefs of America’s founders can be summarized in this way: Don’t bore me with the facts—my mind is made up.

Having retired from higher education more than a year ago, it had been a while since I had heard some fact-challenged liberal claim that America’s founders were not Christians or that, at best, they were deists. But that changed recently while I was getting a haircut. My barber is a transplanted Californian so he probably cannot be blamed for his liberal worldview, nor can he be cured of it. I bristled a little when he made the comment to another customer that America’s founders were not Christians. However, since at the time he was using a straight razor on the back of my neck I thought it best to not excite him by challenging his comment. Instead, when he was done with my haircut I asked if he had ever studied the religious views and backgrounds of our founders. He admitted that he was just repeating what he had learned in school (Yes he went to public school in California). I recommended that he look into the question himself. This article summarizes what my barber will find if he follows through and actually does some legitimate, objective research.

About the religious views of the fifty-five men who developed America’s Constitution, my barber will find the following information: 26 were Episcopalians, 11 were Presbyterians, 7 were Congregationalists, 2 were Lutherans, 2 were Dutch Reformed, 2 were Methodists, 2 were Quakers, 2 were Roman Catholics, and one was Benjamin Franklin (whose religious views are still hard to pin down). Because Franklin’s views are difficult to ascertain with any degree of certainty, he is the founder liberals like to use as their example of our “non-Christian” founders. Of course, by focusing the attention of listeners on Benjamin Franklin liberals are able to avoid having to discuss the religious views of the other 54 founders.

Anti-Christian liberals like to quote Benjamin Franklin’s views expressed at various times in his life to validate their claim that America’s founders were not Christians. However, they are forced to choose their Franklin quotes carefully or risk invalidating their biased claim. For example, anti-Christian liberals studiously avoid this Franklin quote: “God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that ‘except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel. I therefore beg leave to move that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven and its blessing on our deliberations be held in this assembly every morning before we proceed to business.” Franklin made this thoroughly Christian statement during one of the hotter moments of verbal discord during the Constitutional Convention. It is quite a statement for a man who is the poster boy for liberals who want to claim that America’s founders were not Christians.

More Brazen Power Grab Attempts, and a ‘Complicit’ Mainstream Media

Mark Steyn has commented, repeatedly, that “He who controls the narrative controls the debate.”  That observation, however, should not be news to anyone. America is living a nightmare that makes “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” look like a picnic orchestrated by pixies. If the topics presented are frightening, the media’s performance is worse. Facts are either hidden from us or are perverted into something they aren’t. Two stories that appeared this week are offered as evidence.

Hidden: Senator Ted Cruz (R. Texas) this week released information about six cases that were brought, by the Lyin King’s administration, to the Supreme Court in 2012. The Court dismissed them.  These cases were attempts by the government to grab unheard of control over individual freedoms. In six, separate cases, the federal government attempted to:

  • Electronically track Americans without their consent and without cause.
  • Divest persons of their private property without making fair compensation.
  • Dispense with statutes of limitations on incidents that transpired years ago, in order to initiate lawsuits.
  • Federally mandate who churches chose as ministers.
  • Override state laws based on presidential caprice.
  • Fine the public without a fair hearing.

Were you even aware of this? Think this information is scary? Those cases were all ruled on and unanimously dismissed. It bears repeating: So horrendous were these attempts at seizure of control that the Lyin’ King’s own Supreme Court Justices made them unanimously kaput. Yet only Senator Cruz’s office publicized this news. It was subsequently covered in a small article in CNS News. Senator Cruz applauded the fact that the Supreme Court had knocked down six cases of attempted tyranny. He said those cases demonstrated “…an astonishing view of federal power on behalf of the Obama Administration. Luckily, we do not have to live in that America…” Senator Cruz was optimistic. Perhaps he should have added “Not yet.”

Misrepresented: Senator Mitch McConnell’s (R. KY) offices were illegally bugged.  A private conversation was secretly recorded then published about a prospective contender for his Senate seat, actress Ashley Judd (a carpetbagger from Tennessee). The mainstream media, print, radio and television, breathlessly reported the story. But what did they report? That Senate Minority Leader McConnell was the victim of a crime? No. The story was that Senator McConnell indulged in “character assassination” against Ms. Judd. No one asked how character assassination was possible when the private conversation was never made public by the tarred evildoers. No one pointed out that everything said about Ms Judd (her mental illness, her bizarre attitudes about procreation and religion) in Senator McConnell’s office, were repetitions of comments that Ms. Judd had made about herself during interviews.  No one mentioned that Richard Nixon, a Republican president, had been sent packing, accompanied by universal howls of protest from a frenzied media, for an identical crime. No. Because the crime was committed against Republicans the MMS refuses to recognize that the law was broken at all. Instead, Senator McConnell has been mocked for insisting that a crime was committed. We already know that freedom of the press is the only Constitutional amendment that is invulnerable, lies notwithstanding. So brazen and commonplace has this conviction become among the MMS that Mother Jones Magazine, the periodical benefitting from the crime, isn’t afraid of prosecution. Instead, they arrogantly demand that Senator McConnell comment on the information illegally obtained by them. Is this a cause for fear? And how.

Language matters. Actions, and inactions, have serious consequences. The longer we tolerate the left’s control of the narrative, the longer we tolerate craven Republican politicians and the longer we accept leftist calumny without riotous argument, the less likely it becomes to ever find truth… much less have footing in any dispute.

Hate And Evil Are 2 Very Real Issues Men Need To Overcome

Posted by on Apr 11, 2013 http://joeforamerica.com/2013/04/hate-and-evil-are-2-very-real-issues-men-need-to-overcome/Hate Bllod Text Black

 

As I watch the coverage these last couple of days of the deaths of Margaret Thatcher and the son of mega-church pastor Rick Warren I am truly in awe of the depravity of those who seemingly have nothing better to do than dance on their graves. No, it’s more than that…it’s the complete lack of human compassion for another. It would be the same disorder we would pronounce on a serial killer who kills without remorse, without reason and without feeling. Those dancing in the streets of London today proclaiming “the witch is dead” are dancing on the grave of a woman who has not been in power for over 20 years. What exactly did she do to them to warrant this behavior? Rick Warren’s son probably never once interacted with one of these haters on the internet in a fashion that would warrant such vitriol, yet here we are with such comments as, “it’s obvious God doesn’t listen to Rick Warren” I mean seriously…who does that? In a 2001 Newsweek article by George Will, In Jedwabne, attempts are made to explain an aspect of human nature which may coincide with what is going on in our current culture.

July 10, 1941, half the Polish town of Jedwabne murdered the other half. Of 1600 Jews about a dozen survived. The atrocities that occurred in this town was not the result of years of propaganda by the Nazis, in fact, the Germans had only occupied the town for two weeks before the mayor and his officials met with the German officials and coordinated the massacre. Everyone participated in some fashion and even peasants arrived at the town as though they were traveling to a fair. As men, women and children were stabbed, beheaded and stoned some fled to a pond and drowned their babies and then themselves to escape the tortuous deaths awaiting those who remained.

Prior to the Germans arriving the Jews and Poles co-existed. The town was under Russian control, thus, immune to years of German propaganda blaming the Jews for economic depression and medieval myths about ritual murders of children by Jews, or by lust for plunder. There is no social conditioning theory which could offer an explanation to account for their behavior.

Prof. Jan Gross’ book, Neighbors, attempts to address the behavior of this particular community. Gross refers to Eric Voegelin’s thoughts about the “simple man, who is a decent man as long as the society as a whole is in order, but who then goes wild, without knowing what he is doing, when disorder arises somewhere and the society is no longer holding together”. Gross concludes, why in Jedwabne did neighbors murder their neighbors? Because it was permitted. Because they could.

Those dancing in the streets or gleefully blogging and tweeting over the death and suffering of others should take note of the lessons in Jedwabne, and possibly take an honest look at themselves. The allowances made for anonymous hateful remarks on the internet and demonstrations celebrating the death of individuals who never committed mass murder, child rape, or genocide should raise serious concerns for the rest of us. If anyone ever asks me why I so vigilantly support the 2nd amendment, I need look no further than human history (if you honestly think the Holocaust was the last example of such human depravity you haven’t been paying attention). I for one won’t be running to any pond.

The Rush Toward Sodom Has Accelerated


by

Homosexuality: The Political Battering Ram

 

“I believe granting liberty to gay people advances a compelling government interest, that such an interest cannot be adequately advanced if “pockets of resistance” to a societal statement of equality are permitted to flourish, and hence that a law that permits no individual exceptions based on religious beliefs will be the least restrictive means of achieving the goal of liberty for gay people.”

– Chai Feldblum, an open Lesbian who was nominated to serve as a Commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by Barack Hussein Obama

The lid has yet again been blown off of the radical homosexual agenda. As the Supreme Court held hearings on the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8, Obama spent $350 million on sexual indoctrination classes for children. The timing is impeccable.

Through the Personal Responsibility Education Program, students will be taught that no type of sex is wrong and the only “unsafe” behavior is becoming pregnant.

One can look to New York City, who implemented a similar type of sexual indoctrination on NYC schools in 2011. This curriculum is taught to grades 5, 8, and 10, which students receive standardized testing on.

Here are some examples of their twisted curriculum:

  • High-school students go to stores and jot down condom brands, prices and features such as lubrication.
  • Teens research a route from school to a clinic that provides birth control and STD tests, and write down its confidentiality policy. (Interesting, I will say that again – they are to write down the confidentiality policy. Did you hear that parents?)
  • Kids ages 11 and 12 sort “risk cards” to rate the safety of various activities, including “intercourse using a condom and an oil-based lubricant,” mutual masturbation, French kissing, oral sex, and anal sex.
  • Teens are referred to resources such as Columbia University’s website Go Ask Alice, which explores topics like “doggie-style” and other positions, “sadomasochistic sex play,” phone sex, oral sex with braces, fetishes, porn stars, vibrators and bestiality. (see Exodus 22:19 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

Do not those that developed this curriculum belong in jail?

Within a year after this perversion was implemented, an article was released in the Wall Street Journal which revealed cases of sexual misconduct by teachers, and that the teachers’ unions were protecting the teachers who received little to no consequence for their crimes against children.

For example, teacher William Scharbach was found to have inappropriately touched and held young boys. “Respondent’s actions at best give the appearance of impropriety and at worst suggest pedophilia,” wrote the arbitrator, the fox in the chicken coop who was hired by the union to protect the union, before giving the teacher only a reprimand. The teacher didn’t deny the touching but denied that it was inappropriate. This is criminal!

Also coinciding with the radical push for sexual deviancy upon America’s children, we cannot forget about Dan Savage, a radical homosexual who dared God’s justice by authoring a book titled “Skipping Towards Gomorrah.” Savage uses the guise of anti-bullying with his Obama-endorsed organization “It Gets Better” – which is nothing but an attempt to normalize homosexuality. Savage attacked the Bible and bullied Christian teens at a high school journalism conference. Yes, I said high school.

It was reported that the first thing the bully said was, “I hope you’re all using birth control,” that the Bible was “bulls—”, and then spewed out sexual innuendos during his speech. The bully also set an atmosphere of hostility towards Christians who espouse beliefs that he was literally taking on himself – he was attacking students while crying “victim”. More than 100 students stood up and walked out of his derogatory, perverted, deranged, vulgar, and backward-meaning speech.

If Dan is not licking doorknobs in hopes that others get sick with the flu, then he (and his husband) is a guest at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception, as well as attendees at the White House anti-bullying conference.

Keep in mind this is the same president who overlooked the ice investigation into the pentagon (5000 pentagon employees were investigated for child pornography), who appointed over 225 homosexuals and transvestites into key positions in government (including Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, who “queerified” Harvard), and who appointed as a safe school czar Kevin Jennings who wrote the forward to a book entitled, Queering Elementary Education. (LINK) Jennings’ hero was Harry Hay, an icon for NAMBLA (North American Man and Boy Love Association) whose motto is “sex before 8 before it’s too late” when marching in gay pride parades.

The NEA has worked hand in glove with this agenda as well. They already had an LGBT caucus for teachers, but in 2010 felt it necessary to celebrate a new caucus: the “drag queen” caucus. The NEA also refused to pass Amendment I-24, designed to protect students from sexual misconduct by teachers. Many feel they refused to pass the amendment in order to protect teachers who have sex with students.

No wonder this bully felt so emboldened to attack a bunch of high school students, and right under the noses of their parents.

Dan Savage is also the same radical homosexual who said on HBO he wished all republicans were “f—ing dead.” In 2006, Savage said that a particular candidate for Senate “should be dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left but the rope,” which, by the way, stands contrary to the radical homosexual agenda’s premise for hate crimes legislation.

He also said on Bill Maher’s show, “I sometimes think about f—ing the s— out of Santorum. I think he needs it. Let’s bone that Santorum. I’m up for whipping up some Santorum in Santorum.” Savage also once claimed “the only thing stopping his d**k from being put in Brad Pitt’s mouth is a piece of paper”, speaking of legislation. Did you catch that? I thought he was married. Out of his own mouth, he just admitted that “homosexual rights” is not about marriage; it is about promiscuity. He contradicts himself at every turn, my friends.

If the president and homosexual lobby went out to prove my point they could have not done a better job. In concert, these two radicals are clearly and literally at war with God and America, as you know it.

The radicals are now operating in the light of day what they used to do through deceptive measures.

The American people have found out the radical homosexual agenda’s every deception through their “civil rights” cry, their “hate crimes” cry, and now their “bullying” cry. At every turn their false premise is discovered.

People have seen clearly, after Savage’s demonstration, their version of tolerance and love – it is quite the opposite. Attack and then cry victim is their face for the world to see. It is bigotry to the fullest – hate and intolerance towards anyone who resists their perversion.

America must come to the very realization that this agenda undermines everything we are. People like Dan Savage used to be jailed for their perversion, now they are hailed by this corrupt administration. When paralleling the actions of the radical homosexuals such as the Dan Savages of the world to the actions of our founders, we now understand why God calls it an abomination.

America, it’s time for you to learn from history, so it does not repeat itself. We can even look to Canada, who implemented homosexual marriage in 2005, and see the moral devastation.

It is clear to see that, unbeknownst to the average homosexual, the radical homosexual agenda is being used as a political battering ram to target our children and silence anyone who opposes their deviant and criminal behavior in an attempt to demoralize and enslave the American people.

John Adams, the second President of these Untied States, said, “Our Constitution is made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Charles Carroll, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, reminds us that “Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of FREE governments.”

My own observation regarding this article by

The rush toward Sodom is becoming an all out turbo enhanced acceleration. This is the result of the Church not being the Church. We are admonished as Christians to be Salt and Light in our society. In Biblical times, salt was used to slow down the purification process of meat. As Christian “Salt” we are responsible to slow down the purification process of society and light the way toward the Lord Jesus Christ. Because we started “playing church”, instead of being the Church, our society has accelerated it’s decline morally and we are facing the persecution unlike the world has ever seen. That is why judgement has to begin with the Church.

Do we have enough fight in us? Will God answer our prayers for revival, or has He turned a deaf ear because of our indifference? Either we fight harder knowing the persecution that will follow, or open our mouths wider as they shove their lifestyle further down our throats.

Answers More Simple Than Second Amendment Destruction Gun Control Bill


Ann Coulter Letter  http://www.humanevents.com/2013/04/10/coulter-liberals-go-crazy-for-the-mentally-ill/

Coulter: Liberals Go Crazy for the Mentally Ill

Coulter: Liberals Go Crazy for the Mentally Ill

Obama has been draping himself in families of the children murdered in Newtown.

MSNBC’s Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats’ gun proposals. (Let’s start with Meghan McCain!)

In a bizarre version of “A Christmas Carol,” CNN’s Carol Costello fantasized about “a mother who lost her child,” showing up and knocking on Sen. Rand Paul’s door, saying, “Please don’t do this!”

The victims of gun violence are the left’s latest “human shields” — a term coined by me in Godless: The Church of Liberalism — for their idiotic ideas. At least it’s not the godawful Jersey Girls this time.

The one clear thread that unites all the mass murders currently being exploited by the Democrats is that they were committed by visibly crazy people who were unaccountably not institutionalized. But Democrats refuse to do anything about crazy people. Apparently, the views of families with relatives murdered by severely disturbed individuals are no longer relevant when it comes to institutionalizing the mentally ill.

If liberals had a decent argument for taking guns away from the law-abiding while doing nothing to prevent schizophrenics from getting guns, they’d make it. Manifestly, they don’t, so they send out victims to make the argument for them, knowing no one will argue with a person whose child has just been murdered.

This allows liberals to act as if Republicans’ only counter-argument to their idiotic gun control proposals is: We don’t mind dead children.

The truth is the opposite. Republicans are pushing policies that will reduce gun violence; Democrats are pushing policies that will increase gun violence.All the actual evidence — mountains of it, in peer-reviewed studies by highly respected economists and criminologists and endlessly retested — shows that limits on magazine capacity, background checks and assault weapons bans will accomplish nothing. Only one policy has been shown to dramatically reduce multiple public shootings: concealed-carry laws.

Unfortunately, there are no similar studies on the effect of involuntary commitment laws for the mentally deranged because no such laws exist anymore and therefore can’t be tested. But we do know that the number of mass public shootings has ballooned since crazy people were thrown out of mental institutions in the 1970s.

For most of the 20th century, from 1900 to 1970, there was an average of four mass public shootings per decade. Throughout the ’70s, as the loony bins were being emptied, the average number of mass shootings suddenly shot up to 13. In the 3.3 decades since 1980, after all the mental institutions had been turned into condos, mass shootings skyrocketed to 36 on average per decade.

Mass shootings don’t correlate with gun ownership; they correlate with not locking up schizophrenics.

Mental illness was blindingly clear in the case of Seung-Hui Cho, who committed mass murder at Virginia Tech. Jared Loughner showed signs of schizophrenia for at least five years before he shot up the Tucson shopping mall. James Holmes was being treated for mental illness long before his massacre at the Aurora movie theater. It was clear to Adam Lanza’s mother — nearly the only person who had contact with him — that he was mentally disturbed and had violent fantasies. (Three-quarters of matricides are committed by the mentally ill.)

We can add paranoid schizophrenic One L. Goh, who committed a mass murder at a Christian college in California last year, and the Muslim Army major, Nidal Hasan, known to be crazier than an MSNBC host, who killed 13 and injured 30 in a “gun-free” area of the Fort Hood Army base a couple years ago. For hundreds more examples of the mentally ill committing murder, read E. Fuller Torrey’s book, The Insanity Offense: How America’s Failure to Treat the Seriously Mentally Ill Endangers Its Citizens.

But Democrats simply will not address the one thing that is screaming out from all of these mass murders, which is that they were committed by crazy people.

As soon as the issue of mental illness came up at a Senate hearing on gun violence in January, Sen. Al Franken leapt in to say: “I want to be careful here — that we don’t stigmatize mental illness. The vast majority of people with mental illness are no more violent than the rest of the population.”

Liberals at ThinkProgress.org and The Huffington Post hailed Franken for his sensitivity. Can we check with the families of the children murdered by crazy people on the danger of “stigmatizing” the mentally ill?

Contrary to Franken’s claim, some of the mentally ill are far more likely to be violent. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, schizophrenics and similarly disturbed individuals are three times more likely to commit a violent crime than others.

The mentally ill are also more likely to be the victims of violence. Ask the sisters of the crazy homeless woman “Billie Boggs” how grateful they were to the ACLU for keeping Boggs out on the street.

Meanwhile, the only target of Democrats’ gun proposals — legal gun owners — are less likely to commit violent crimes than others. To the contrary, armed civilians justifiably kill about 1,500-2,800 felons a year, compared to 300-600 legal killings by the police. Responsible armed citizens protecting us from violent criminals should be subsidized rather than taxed and harassed.

After five mass shootings by deranged lunatics, even liberals know that the only policy — apart from concealed-carry laws — that might have stopped these shootings are laws permitting the institutionalization of the mentally ill.

That’s why they keep claiming their gun bills address mental illness. Warning: Read the bill. You will find nothing in any of the Democrats’ “gun safety” proposals that will make it easier to commit a crazy person or to prevent him from buying a gun.

The Democrats’ argument for doing absolutely nothing about the dangerously mentally ill, while disarming crime-preventing armed citizens is: Tell it to this weeping mother. If the Democrats’ “gun safety” bill passes, there’ll be plenty more weeping mothers to tell it to.

 

GOD Now or GOD Later


 

obama_church_1109980aEver notice how quickly our leaders turn to God in times of tragedy? How many times after a tragedy occurs, do you see someone say; “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims’ families…”?

It’s almost standard fare, because our leaders understand the importance of going to GOD, especially in times  of disaster or great need. But I have a question:

Why is God good enough for our leaders, but not for our kids in schools? What about the idea that if we expose children to God going in, we wouldn’t have to pray for Him to show up later; after a terrible tragedy?

Yes, I know the left will scream about the separation of church and State, but instilling the word of God into school lessons for kids doesn’t mean someone is trying to impose a certain religion on children. If kids these days can be indoctrinated with every feel-good, politically-correct agenda from the left, then certainly introducing a few time-tested teachings of God might go a long way toward exacting some honesty, integrity, kindness, and yes, moral behavior for children to hear about and maybe even learn.

The Education system does not exist in a vacuum. It is and was intended to be a partnership between teachers, administrators and yes, parents. Advancing the cause that all religion or moral teachings should be left to take place only in the home is turning a blind eye to the realities of our contemporary world. Why wouldn’t we want everyone pushing for strong values to be infused into the minds of American kids before, during and after their impressionable ages?

78% of all Americans claim to be Christians, and over 90% claim to believe in a God, so the obvious question here is; what’s the problem? How do violent video games, explicit movies and TV shows, rap music – with language that would have gotten you headed out to retrieve a switch 20 years ago – get into the classroom, but prayers are banned?

Make no mistake, there is a small group of determined folks who wish to eradicate every hint of religion or God from the ears of young children, but they do not have theirs or our best interests in mind. The relationship between getting rid of God and what is going on with our kids, seems like a no-brainer to me. I don’t know how the case can be made that kids are smarter, more kind, happier, less violent, and better behaved now than they were in the early 60’s when this insanity started.

In America our public schools are intended to be religiously neutral, so what do I have in mind? Changing some laws or passing some new ones? Not hardly – man made laws don’t change problems of this magnitude anyway. I’m talking about trying to change what lies in the heart of a child. What if we introduce silly things like,

  • Honor Thy Mother and Father

  • Thou shalt not kill

  • Thou shalt not steal

  • Thou shalt not commit Adultery

  • Thou shalt not lie

  • Thou shalt not covet

I hope it doesn’t take 50 years to turn this ship around, but on the other hand I don’t really care how long it takes, I’m in.

This is Joe the Plumber Wurzlebacher and I believe in this message.

 

More Evidence of the Prophesied Persecution of The Church


Gestapo 2013? Colorado State Police and Homeland Security Target Christians

By / http://clashdaily.com/2013/04/gestapo-2013-colorado-state-police-and-homeland-security-target-christians/

Screen Shot 2013-04-10 at 9.29.25 AMI recently received a letter from one of law enforcement’s finest.  He had attended a seminar in which he was told to be on the lookout for Christians.  The letter was written by an attendee, Ron Trowbridge, Undersheriff in Prowers County, Colorado.  I would like to thank Sheriff Trowbridge for the letter and the 25 years he has spent protecting the public in his county.  Fear of reprisals from either the Colorado State Police and Homeland Security, fail to stop this patriot from exposing what our law officers are being subjected to.

Because of his bravery, we are able to get an inside look on how nefarious forces within our government are attempting to indoctrinate our law officers.  As this letter proves, our officers cannot be intimidated. Nor can they be turned on the people they serve.  The people of Prowers County are very lucky to have him.
Without further delay, here is the letter unedited and complete in it’s original form:

From: rtrowbridge@prowerscounty.net To: forknown@hotmail.com Subject: CSP Training Date: Fri, 5 Apr 2013 10:30:22 -0600

On April 1, 2013 I attended training in La Junta, Colorado hosted by the Colorado State Patrol (CSP).  The training was from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm and covered two topics, Sovereign Citizens, and Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs.  I was pretty familiar with motorcycle gangs but since we often deal with the so-called sovereign citizen groups I was interested to see what they had to say.  The group consisted of police officers, deputies, and CSP troopers.  There were about 20 people in attendance.

Trooper Joe Kluczynski taught a 2-hour section on sovereign citizens.  Kluczynski spent most of his two hours focusing on how, in his view and apparently the view of Homeland Security, people turn to the sovereign citizen movement.  Kluczynski started off by saying there are probably some sovereign citizens in this room and gave a generalized list of those groups that have sovereign citizen views.  Among those groups, Kluczynski had listed, were those who believe America was founded on godly principles, Christians who take the Bible literally, and “fundamentalists”.  Kluczynski did not explain what he meant by “fundamentalists” but from the context it was clear he was referring again to those who took the Bible literally or “too seriously.”

While Kluczynski emphasized that sovereign citizens have a right to their beliefs, he was clearly teaching that the groups he had listed should be watched by law enforcement and should be treated with caution because of their potential to assault law enforcement.  Kluczynski explained why he believed these groups were dangerous saying they were angry over the election of a black president.  When someone in the group suggested the failing economy was probably much more to blame, Kluczynski intimated that those who are not going along with the changes in America will need to be controlled by law enforcement.  Kluczynski even later questioned some of the troopers present if they were willing and prepared to confiscate “illegal” weapons if ordered to.

Kluczynski’s assignment with the CSP was an Analyst for the Colorado Information Analysis Center, (CIAC).  CIAC is funded by Homeland Security funds and run by the CSP.  Kluczynski said he gets his information from the Department of Homeland Security.  Kluczynski said he was leaving the CSP at the end of that week (March 29, 2013) to begin his new career with Homeland Security.  I thought he was perfect for the job.
