I've got so much to thank God for
So may blessings and so many open doors
A brand new mercy
Along with each new day
That's why I praise You
For this I give You praise
For waking me up this morning
That's why I praise You
For starting me on my way
That's why I praise You
For letting me see the sunlight of a new brand day
A brand new mercy along with each new day
That's why I praise You
For this I give You praise
You're Jehovah Jireh
That's why I praise You
You've been my provider
That's why I praise You
So many times You met my need, So many times You rescued me
That's why I praise You
I wanna thank You for the blessings You give to me each day
That's why I praise You
For this I give You praise
For every mountain You brought me over
For every trial you've seen me through
For every blessing
Hallelujah, for this I give You praise
All this came to mind when a couple days ago checking out of a store I was asked if I wanted to donate to the Boy Scouts. No. Here's why. The demise of the Boy Scouts of America is at hand. Here's
the reminder of the Boy Scout oath, all of us took at one time when we joined,
and known by most even if they didn't join.
On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Since this was written and practiced, God has been tossed
out; secularists and neo-atheists are in. [Neo-atheists by the way are those
that claim not to believe in God and are more anti-Christian and do everything
they can to be bigoted, intolerant hatemonger's to destroy Christians and Christianity.
Traditional atheists just say they don't believe in God and go about their
business.] Believing in country is out. We have a president of the US, his
political party, and other assorted Leftists denouncing this country, President
Obama saying this country isn't exceptional and inferring in speech after
speech it's the source of many of the world's ills.
Morally straight is now out of the question. Sexuality,
especially the homosexual lifestyle, is the wedge that's split the
organization. What the hell are adults doing getting kids involved in a
discussion of who's banging who and who's using dildo's to bang each other? I
also agree with the notion that dildos should be illegal for lesbians. If they
don't want the real thing, they should be denied the fake thing.
A Scout is
trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
obedient, cheerful, thrifty,
brave, clean, and
All those have been driven out too. Especially by the adult
secularists, neo-atheists, anti-Christian bigots, and intolerant homosexual
bigots. They have their own selfish agenda that demolished the Scout Law and
Scout Oath. No thoughts expressed about helping young men and boys be better
men and citizens.
This past May the Boy Scout "leadership" voted in
their annual meeting by about 60% to
promote homosexuality in the Scouts. Next up is to allow homosexual men to be
Scout leaders. We all know how well it worked out for the Catholic Church to
have these kinds of men in leadership positions. Just what the Scouts need,
male homosexual pedophiles to go with pubescent angst and confusion.
Since that May vote it's estimated about 300,000 members
have left, and most Churches that have supported and funded the Scouts have
withdrawn. Most Christian leaders have left.
They're forming a Scout organization named Trail Life USA. They are
returning to the founding principals of the BSA's Oath and Law, which were
Christian based. One example is the Scout motto "Be Prepared" will be
This response to Leftist bullying was because the Leftists
in the leadership positions of the BSA were afraid of losing funding from
Leftist corporations, government departments (Leftist and anti-Christian by
definition), and Leftist charities like United Way. Plus their greedy lawyers
with all the lawsuits. How again does all that benefit young men and boys
become better men and citizens?
The result was they got what they feared would happen if
they didn't throw out the traditional principals of the BSA. Plummeting membership,
so dues are going up from $15 per scout to $24 per scout. Always the Leftist
strategy; blow a good thing and then take money from the victims of their
policies. Those guys also manage to get themselves nice salaries; the top five BSA
big wig's are getting a whopping $696, 862. Many if not most of the local BSA's
councils in big cities are running deficits in the $millions. $3.25 million in
LA. How in the heck does an organization that promotes being mentally awake,
morally straight, trustworthy, helpful and thrifty end up $millions in debt?
Certainly not living its own values, but the values of Leftists,
homosexual men that want to exploit boys, and
Trail Life USA
is a Christian adventure, character, and leadership program for young men. The
K-12 program centers on outdoor experiences that build a young man’s skills and
allow him to grow on a personal level and as a role model and leader for his
peers. Living the Trail Life is a journey established on timeless values
derived from the Bible.
Our vision is to be the premier national character
development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible
husbands, fathers, and citizens.
Our mission is simple and clear: to guide generations of
courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and
experience outdoor adventure.
Colossians 1:10 “… so
that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way:
bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, …”
Before Obama came to power he made statements about his
political goals, Socialist intentions, and his pro Islamist support. His stated
goals then were a single payer (to the government) health care system, shutting
down the energy sector and military, along with anti US and anti Constitutional freedoms, and support of Islamism.
He's done well shutting down coal and oil production on
federal land and water, has gotten most of his government (as opposed to
personal) controlled health care, and his support of Islam has reached the
point where he is sending military weapons to Al Qaeda, sworn enemy of the US.
Aiding and abetting the enemy used to be called treason. He supported the
Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt,
and is supporting Al Qaeda in Syria.
When he ran for the presidency he made some promises that
were not carried out, or partially carried out if it fit within his anti
American, anti Constitutional world view. Others he just disregarded.
He was going to close Gitmo. Still open.
Remember his complaint about lobbyists, how evil they were,
that they had too much control over politics? Then he said he would not have lobbyists
in his administration? He has a lot of lobbyists in his administration, and
their companies have gotten a lot of special legislation and tax breaks.
He's covered up Benghazi,
the IRS targeting Conservative and
Religious groups, NSA spying on ordinary citizens, and lots of other stuff we all know about if we read and listen to other sources than the Jurassic Press. He has secret meetings that blocks the press, even though they advocate for and support everything he says and does. Yet he had said his would be the most transparent administration in
There was his promise ObamaCare would let everyone keep
his\her current plan and doctor (it doesn't) and it would lower costs by about
$2500 per family per year (it increases by about that much). He said there was
an opt out for abortion based on religious views (it doesn't so there's a bunch
of law suits). He has forced with this legislation, passed by Dems only in the
middle of the night on a holiday, to make every citizen to pay into it even if
they don't want to. That is unless you're a friend of Obama, one of his
paymasters, or congressmen and their staffers who can opt out; taxpayers will
pay the price difference. Oh, and if you're a young person you'll be paying for most of the freight for this program, against your will, yet you voted en mass for him.
He was going to lower unemployment and it's gone up. It even
was over 8% which he said would never happen on his watch. I remember the Jurassic Press and Dems screaming bloody murder whenever, under a Republican Administration unemployment got into the high 4% range. Now 8% is the "new normal" and we must accept it. The 7 point whatever
percent it is now is seen as a recovery and improvement when in fact more people are
unemployed, 46 million. More people are underemployed than ever. More people are on food
stamps than ever. He was going to create millions of "green jobs". Most went bankrupt after they took and kept the taxpayer money or took the money and opened plants overseas. More Blacks are unemployed than ever yet they voted for him
en mass, again, for a second term.
Black on black violence is up, black on white violence is
up. Groups hating each other is up even though he ran saying he would bring
groups together. That he would smooth over and negotiate mutually beneficial
political resolutions between political parties, yet over the years has stated
several times he will not negotiate with Republicans. He has however negotiated
with Russian Tsar Putin, leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, the murderous
Syrian dictator, is willing to sit down Hamas and Iran's dictator. He admired Venezuelan
dictator Chavez. But Conservative, non-RHINO Republicans and Christians are his
(and Democrat Party's) evil enemy.
He said he would slash earmarks out of any budget sent to
him, that he would go through each budget line by line. He hasn't. His own
budgets have gotten nearly 100% rejection every year, and his Democrat
controlled senate has not passed a budget since he came to office, and it's
required by law.
I could go on and on, but I think you get my drift. This is
the biggest lying incompetent president in our history. We have the least
transparent, most law breaking, division producing, most dictatorial, poverty
producing presidency ever, and it's breaking our country up.
Don't forget either he also was going to "heal the
planet" and "slow the rise of the oceans".
His breaking down our country is breaking my heart.
One of the most effective and dangerous movements and
political philosophies, dating back to the late 19th century, is Fabianism. The
idea is rather than have a revolutionary overthrow of a government, be patient
and incrementally create Progressive\Socialist change. It's the frog in the
warming water concept.
There's an actual Fabian Society, formed by Socialists in Britain in 1884.
It was influential in laying the foundation for Britain's Labor Party. It continues
to be powerful and influential and maintains several think tanks worldwide to
guide Socialist governments.
Not surprisingly, at one time it advocated, like all
totalitarian philosophies, eugenics...got to control those colored people, so
let's kill them at birth. That was the basis for Margaret Sanger's Planned
Parenthood. Through Fabianism, that abhorrent idea has been toned down to what
we have now; an abortion mill financed by the government, which used to be
citizens, but now we're (the few remaining productive ones) just taxpayers
footing the bill for politicians, bureaucrats and their paymasters in the
unions and several Socialist millionaires and billionaires that have got
Chipping away at Liberty here
in the US,
Socialists added income taxes, then added progressive taxation to that. Then all the New
Deal programs allowing the government to insert itself into our lives; reducing
it's ability of perform the functions enumerated in the Constitution. In the
1960's were added Medicare and Medicaid, laying the groundwork for Socialized
medicine, and currently being implemented by Our Dear Leader, Barack Hussein
Obama and his totalitarian political party.
We have moved from local control of education at the beginning
of this country, with students actually learning the three "R's" to
centralized education. The purpose of that is indoctrination into socialism.
That's currently being implemented by the "Common Core" program.
Three "R's" need not be applied. Just a couple things "Common
Core" focuses on instead is teaching; "informational texts"
rather than literature for 50% of the time. Don't teach critical thinking or analysis.
Less content knowledge and more about sex and touchy feely stuff.
Bit by bit Fabianism has reduced citizens' income by
confiscating it to pay for government programs (depleting personal wealth
depletes personal freedom and power), ceased educating students, opened
borders, gutted the military, increased dependence on the government for nearly
half the population, and now will decide what kind of, and how much we will pay
to take care of our bodies through ObamaCare.
Once again the Luddite "progressives" are keeping America from
being first at something. That would be nuclear energy plants. Back in the mid
1970's we were scheduled to build 100 nuclear rectors in 20 years. Well, there
were a couple accidents at a couple plants, Jane Fonda's "The China
Syndrome" propaganda movie against nuclear energy development, and that's
where we stopped. I bought into the whole anti nuke power thing back then.
Unlike Leftists/Progressives/Socialist/Democrats, I don't stay stuck in the
past, I change as things evolve, as do Conservatives. Those guys, Leftists, by the way,
only believe in evolution when they want to bash uninformed Christians; those
Christians that stay stuck in the past and don't change like
"progressives" falsely claim to do.
They're against fracking, which does not pollute ground
water as they claim, they just want to stop energy production, hurting the poor
the most, the people they claim they care the most about. Federal Government finally comes out with study showing fracking does not contaminate ground water here. How fracking works here. Note that the most
effective KwH per hour is nuclear production, after coal, which Obama is shutting down. All the other "green energy" stuff like wind and
solar that the neo-Luddites proclaim are best, are far and anyway the most expensive. Drilling
new oil wells, especially on Alaska's NorthShore,
they were\are against, claiming the pollution and potential for accidents for
spills and such were too great. The kind of drilling technology and
problems they are talking about was dated when I worked on rigs in the 1970's.
Again they just want to stop energy production. Same with the Keystone
Pipeline. There are no emissions, no pollution issues, no safety issues. They
just want to stop energy production. Just take a look too at Obama and his
various energy and pollution departments just illegally closing down
production; offshore and on Federal land. Of course there's been a huge boost
in energy production from gas and oil, but it's all on private land; Obama of
course takes credit for the increased production.
Meanwhile, the rest of the world has moved ahead with nuclear
reactors with great success and close to zero problems. Here's some examples of
what's being done in the rest of the world. Westinghouse has a reactor, the
AP-1000, and has built six of them in China; they are online. (The
Chinese of course reverse engineered them and build their own now.)
Another reactor is the Areva 1,700 megawatt European Pressurized
Reactor (EPR) which is a new (oh no! cry the Democrats, something new!) design,
also coming online in China.
The Russians are building reactors in India, Vietnam,
Bangladesh, Turkey, Belarus
We could be building them there, making gazillions of dollars, employing
Americans, saving the environment and stopping the bleeding the of poor of money
they don't have to spend on energy.
There's even little reactors, Small Modular Reactors (SMR)
that can be manufactured in plants and put together on site. It's 125
megawatts, about the size of a back porch; each one could provide energy to about
70,000 people. I'm reminded of a sci-fi series where even watches were nuclear
powered. By the way, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission refuses to even
Nuclear waste...that canard. Uranium was used in the 1950's
for awhile beyond. It's not needed, modern reactors mostly use thorium, which
produces about one tenth of the waste, and is less dangerous, than uranium
waste. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission refuses to recognize thorium just like
they refuse to recognize SMR's. We have the multi $billion YuccaMountain
here in Nevada,
which has way more capacity than necessary to safely store the thorium waste.
The issue here is more the transportation. Government knuckleheads want it
brought though ClarkCounty, the most densely populated part of Nevada, by truck mostly
and some by rail. Geeeze, here's a novel idea, build a road or rail to Yucca
Mountain not passing though heavily populated areas. Of course the Nuclear bureaucrats
have lame excuses why they can't, but they're knuckleheads, and it's another
red herring to block the use of nuclear power.
There's a breeder reactor called an Integral Fast Reactor.
It doesn't have much waste, it mostly generates reusable fuel. There was one
that had been running in Idaho
for about thirty years until Bill Clinton shut it down. Russia has one, been
building it and selling since the 1980's all over the world, Heard of any
Even Leftist Bill Gates recognizes the safe use of nuclear
energy. There's a kind of design call Traveling Wave that runs on depleted
uranium. Hey, we can use traditional waste and create energy. How 'bout that? Well,
he and his group tried getting those started up here, and of course the Nuclear
Energy Commission said no. The Chinese are building them now. They could be being
built here, creating jobs and providing clean low cost energy, but noooooo.
Another canard is terrorists can get the uranium waste and
make bombs. There are more efficient and cheaper ways to make nuclear bombs. That's
how they did stuff a couple decades ago.
Using the right processing, waste is not a problem, and can
be safely stored in small rooms really. But we've built YuccaMountain
so we may as well use it. All we need is a small room in it.
One of the things totalitarian governments have to do to get
and maintain power is to create shortages of what citizens need. We have
ObamaCare and Medicare to make health care limited and expensive, making citizens
dependent on the State for it. We have
the stopping of energy production through putting the kibosh on pipelines,
drilling, fracking, coal and nuclear energy.
Progressives, neo Luddites. Hate progress, hate clean air, hate poor people.
When this girl was 11 or 12 years old she began speaking out
against the Taliban and others that keep girls out of school. That was in 2009.
She continued to speak out for education and against the atrocities visited
upon women. In 2012 she was shot in the face, twice, by Taliban. She survived
and is now living in England
and is back in school.
The Taliban are still trying to kill her and her father.
Recently they've published a letter condemning Malala and justifying their
attempt to kill her, and their continued desire to carry out her murder. Adnan
Rasheed, a Taliban leader, is the author of the letter condemning Malala, and
it has gained traction in the Islamic world, mostly condemning her for being a
tool of the West, that she should be condemning the West, drone strikes, that
she's pushing UN propaganda and the education she advocates is against the
teachings of Islam. It's not clear how many, but apparently millions of
Islamists agree with him. More in a article here.
Unfortunately, the UN is not for Western education, liberty
and human rights. They pay lip service to it only. The UN is anti West, anti
American, anti Christian, anti democracy. They want a top down world government
and obedience to a world State.
This young woman is brave beyond words, and though speaking
to people that don't buy into her message, she's gotten her message out. We
love her and support her for that.
True of any totalitarian state, using the reason of security
to control citizens has reached epic proportions. Like much else the Obama
Regime and the Democrat Party does, there's a lot of anti-Constitutional,
serious violations of that and legislated law.
We have of course the NSA and it's massive spying on US
citizens. Spying on journalists and News organizations (even Leftist ones that
support the totalitarian Obama regime), IRS spying on and trying to financially
cripple organizations that oppose Obama and his Leftist oligarchy, and TSA
harassment of ordinary law abiding citizens traveling within the US. We have
Homeland Security buying up ten of millions of rounds of ammunition, reportedly
as much or more per person than what's allocated to military personal. That
sounds suspiciously like a domestic military force.
Just a reminder of what the Fourth Amendment requires of the
government. "The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States
Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights that guards against unreasonable
searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially
sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the
abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in
the American Revolution. Search and seizure (including arrest) should be
limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing
court, usually by a law enforcement officer, who has sworn by it. The Fourth
Amendment applies to the states by way of the Due Process Clause of the
Fourteenth Amendment." [Wikipedia]
I'll say the usual and obvious here. If a Republican president
and his political party were violating the Forth Amendment this openly and
outrageously, Democrats/Leftists/Socialists would be screaming bloody murder.
Remember the big kerfuffle with Bush II and the Patriot Act allowing Feds to
check what people checked out of the library? Or tracking terrorist
organizations financials. Or listening to known terrorist phone conversations?
Oh my God, Bush is a dictator! All our rights have been violated!
And yet, here we have a president and his political party
clearly ignoring the Constitution and openly spying on citizens. The Federal Government's
[anti] law enforcement agencies focus on the law abiding. A couple of recent
examples that have just emerged that is even more blatant violations of
citizens' rights are searching cars in airports without a search warrant, and
police cars that record license plates on tens of thousands of cars, and those
go into a national tracking database.
Here's the report of searching cars at the airport without a
search warrant or notifying the owner of the car. Full article here.
Here's what being done by the government monitoring cars.
They justify it by saying there's no expectation of privacy, this is done in
public domain, and there's no intent of using the information to track or
monitor the public. Seriously? Of course it is.
" WASHINGTON (AP) — Chances are, your local or state
police departments have photographs of your car in their files, noting where
you were driving on a particular day, even if you never did anything wrong.
Using automated scanners, law enforcement agencies across
the country have amassed millions of digital records on the location and
movement of every vehicle with a license plate, according to a study published
Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union. Affixed to police cars,
bridges or buildings, the scanners capture images of passing or parked vehicles
and note their location, uploading that information into police databases.
Departments keep the records for weeks or years, sometimes indefinitely."
Full article here.
It amazes me that so many Americans are willing to submit to
being spied on, harassed, inconvenienced, and have all their private movements,
their health issues, their communications and everything else in their lives
monitored by the government in violation of the Constitution and all laws that
flow from it.
Base line budgeting, only reduces the rate of growth. If last year the government increased spending by 10% and this year they only increase spending 8%, we are told that government spending is being cut cut cut, killing old people, causing starvation, poverty, babies are dying, pollution is getting worse, employment is being forced up....on and on it goes. Then we are told "austerity" measures are being used. What a bunch of BS.
I wrote an essay for my first English class in college positing
the idea that eventually the explicit graphic sexual writing and descriptions
(this was in 1968) would have to eventually fade because it lacked creativeness,
anybody could to it. I thought writers that truly loved their craft would stop
indulging in that low level of writing. The professor gave me high marks, but
wrote the comment "are you serious?" I was, but for the most part I
Part of it is our culture has degenerated into easiness and
mediocrity; in all things, not just literature. At it's core, this phenomenon
has to do with our giving up on liberty, the rejection of it, and replacing
it with libertinism. As a culture we've redefined liberty to mean we can do
whatever we want without consequence. We can reject the Judeo-Christian moral
and ethical values and rules of behavior and replace them with "if it feels
good, do it". In our US Constitution we can ignore "enumerated
rights" and accept the government can do whatever it damn well pleases, cannot
"infringe" doesn't really mean that, and freedom to practice religion
and the government can't establish a State religion, is changed to meaning freedom from
all religious mention anywhere, anytime, except in church on Sunday.
I had left Christianity and the church (institutional
worship and service) for about twenty five years, returned, and when I say that I am more
free now, that I experience and practice more liberty now than during the years
of secularism and libertinism, I get that 'you're nuts' look, or "what the
hell are you talking about?"
During those years I was free not to commit to anything except pleasure I
had to ask myself, how is that good? I found it lends itself to alienation,
from people and groups. Now I'm committed to my Church and my friends in a way
I didn't understand before, and I'm a better man for it. I also moved from
Leftism\Marxism to Conservatism politically, and my political thinking is more
clear and true.
At the national level we have a government and culture that
ignores fiscal responsibility and have allowed ourselves to be tens of
$trillions in debt; an unimaginable number, and think there's no consequences.
We accept graphic sex and violence as the norm. Maybe it's only age, but I've
lost interest in it. It doesn't tantalize anymore. At the national level look
at the $trillions we spend on sex, drugs, alcohol, the things that only provide
us with short term material pleasure. I'm all for pleasure still, but it
shouldn't be life's purpose. Tithing and giving to charity and missionary organizations is much more fulfilling.
I think if those libertine things are the most important, is what
drives you, then you aren't free. I have to ask, what good is it if what's most
important is getting loaded, who benefits? If politicians' greed for money and
power, which they get only by taking it from you, is what drives them, not the
rule of law, who benefits? The Bible and our Constitution make it abundantly
clear there are specific rules and laws that work, for both national and
personal behavior. Rejecting those leads to bondage to the State, and personal bondage
to things that hurts oneself and others.
I have found that the discipline of Judeo-Christian living
is what frees, and the Constitution is based on those principles, and is what
has kept us free as a people. Both are being rejected, at our peril, and why those of us
that care see more degradation, decay and corruption in our civilization.
Since the 1960's we have seen these things continually increase, our problems
increase, because we reject what is right for what is convenient and mediocre, comfortable and
Romans 8:21 observes "....because the creation itself
also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty
of the children of God.' Another way to word that is, what would you rather
choose, the fake freedom of liberty of the world, or the world God intended for
us? For you secularists, God intended us to get along, not fight, treat others
well, and care for each other. Hope, Love, Charity.
This is a brilliant analogy of what happens as a result of a bad marketing strategy. The Republican Elite have it in their heads that becoming more Leftist and rejecting Conservative Principles will win more elections. It's been proven time and again to be a failure. It also drives home the point Conservatives must continue to campaign against RINO's as much as Democrats\Leftists\Totalitarians. Both are about taking power from Citizens and amassing it for themselves.
Scott Pelley, CBS News Reader Anchor, accepting a journalism award, takes to task journalists, pointing out how a lot of stories recently have been dead wrong. Admitting one has a problem is the first step. It's what happens when blinded by ideology. The Jurassic Press is more interested in supporting the president and his political party, and attacking the alternative press, so much so that it can only tell lies. Kudos for stating a part of the problem. He's managing editor of CBS (alleged) News. CBS News, after eight months has finally spent a couple minutes on Benghazi, where Obama and Sec of State Clinton took no action and let American Citizens be slaughtered by Islamofascist Terrorists, covered it up, then covered up the cover-up Let see if he takes his own advice.
His speech starts and 14min in. It's out of sync; I've tried several sites and all I could find are.
Common Core is the newest installment of the federal
government's efforts to collectivize children, to educate them according to the
needs of the State. It started with the Dept of Education in the 1970's which
centralized education, taking it away from the states. Can anyone honestly say
kids are coming out of school are more knowledgeable since the take over? Take a
look at the tests and curriculum before the 1970's compared to now. Now it's
about ensuring kids come out without math skills, speaking and writing badly,
no knowledge of history or civics. What they do come out as are little drones obedient
to the State. Whatever happened to simply teaching the three R's? It worked at the local level for over two hundred years. The problem for the State is it also taught personal achievement, personal responsibility, and how to think for oneself. Can't have that now.
The program has standardized testing which is problematic to
some teachers and parents. What federal standardized testing does is allow the
State to determine what is taught. We have a government and
political/socio-economic elite that is re-writing history as Orwell predicted
to control the present, indoctrination to obey the State, and is anti-religion
(specifically anti Christian). It indoctrinates kids to reject individual responsibility
and to work for the "collective". Yes, the proponents of this program
actually use that word.
Charter schools, magnet schools, private schools and home schoolers are all subject to this Statist takeover of education.
Below is a great explanation of what this program is about.
Glenn Beck has been demonized by the Left\Democrats\fascists\ totalitarians as
an attempt to get people to avoid, dismiss and insult him. They've done the same to Rush
Limbaugh, and did it to Mitt Romney during the presidential campaign. You'll be
hard pressed to find, on any issue, Leftists to address the topic at hand with cogent
arguments, only insults to and about the person that opposes them. Don't believe,
be a free thinker, and listen to the other side if you're a Leftist\Statist. We
conservatives have that opposing few rammed down our throats 24/7 so we can't
help but know what our opposition is saying.
I find it not so amazing the same people for this centralized planning of education tore down "No Child Left Behind", attributed to GW Bush but primarily written by Democrat Ted Kennedy and his staff. The thing that chaffed them is tests. Go figure.
Sometimes I just have to withdraw from making any comments
about events. Everything that's wrong with economics, culture, politics,
religion is praised and promoted, and what's right is demonized.
We have a president, in regards to religion, making pro Palestinian/Islamist
statements of support, caustically comments on Jews and Israel,
and makes personal attacks on Israel's prime minister. He's
silent on the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East, most especially by
the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt
who recently destroyed St Mark Cathedral. It's as important to the Copts as the
is for Catholics. It's also hugely important to millions of Christians
worldwide. It was attacked by regular people, and the military, instead of
protecting the site, joined in and gunned down Christians that were there. Not
a word by the Obama administration. The only word I've heard from them is the
plan to go ahead with sending fighter jets, tanks and weapons to the Muslim
Brotherhood, which have set up a murderous dictatorship.
Sadly, but not unexpectedly, the Leftist Jurassic Press
downplayed this destruction and slaughter, and Reuters (the new international
Pravda) tried to lay blame at the feet of the Copts, calling them a
"fringe" element, “an angry young fringe … of Christianity may also
be turning to violence". Copts make up 12%-15% of the Egyptian population.
A fringe element? Tens of thousands have
fled to save their lives, and their homes and churches are burned to the
ground, usually with people in them.
American Christian pastor Saeed Abedini has been imprisoned,
beaten and tortured only because he's a Christian. Not a peep (well, maybe some
small peeps) from the Obama administration or his State Department. The attempt
to deal with this is so weak as to be no attempt at all.
Coming back to our shores, the persecution of Christians
continues, fortunately without the violence. If Obama were the Christian he
claims he is, he would be using the presidential bully pulpit to speak against
these things. Instead he promotes and allows his atheist\secularist fellow
travelers to bully Christians. Not only is he silent on the persecution of
Christians, he endorses it. An instructor at a reserve Army training facility
classified Christians, specifically Evangelicals, as religious extremists,
equivalent to Al Qaeda, Hamas and the KKK.. Catholics were included in the list
of religious extremists. Seriously? Of
course this administration, the Army and Department of Defense pleaded
ignorance. Still haven't heard the administration respond. Then again, it's
against Christians, so I'm not holding my breath.
Obama, further using the military to persecute Christians,
has appointed Mike Weinstein as a Pentagon Adviser on matters of “religious
toleration.” Weinstein is an anti Christian bigot, that has reinterpreted the freedom
of religion establishment clause to mean freedom from religion and throws up
the false separation of church and state. It doesn't exist, no such thing is in
the Constitution. Weinstein is the founder and president of the anti Christian
hate group and President of The Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
Weinstein told Defense Secretary Hagel and the Washington
Post: “This is a national security threat. What
is happening…is spiritual rape and what the Pentagon needs to understand is
that it is sedition and treason. It
should be punished.”
Weinstein wants anyone serving in the military to be
court-martialed if they talk about their Faith to anyone. Re-read what I've italicized; that anyone speaking of their faith is guilty
of sedition and treason, acts that are punishable by imprisonment or execution.
Seriously? The military is controlled by the commander in chief, and not one
word of this has been addressed by him. Not going out on a limb here, but if
such a charge were launched against Islamists, he'd knock it down immediately
Another word about Weinstein. In 2011 he sued to stop Air Force Cadets
participating in Operation Christmas Child because the project is Franklin
Graham project. There were Christian cadets asking for donations for poor
children, and that was unacceptable because Graham is an evangelical, and
therefore an extremist and anti Constitutional. Really, that coming from a
knucklehead that says the establishment clause says freedom "from"
religion, not that the government can't establish a religion you must practice
and be a member of. Since Obama and the Dept of Defense have not spoken against
this, I can only assume they must, once again, support the persecution of Christians.
Weinstein has called Christians "monsters". He's in charge of forming
"religious toleration" policies for the military. Denying food and
gifts to poor children because of anti Christian bigotry, intolerance and
In Texas, at ColumbusHigh School, runner Derrick Hayes won
his race, pointed to the sky, and was disqualified, it being deemed a religious
gesture and "excessive celebration".
Seriously? Another example of Christian persecution. Of course if an
Islamist runner turned and kneeled to Mecca
and gave thanks, nothing would have been done. The centralized Dept of Education supported no
praying at high school football games, so I can only assume they support this
anti Christian ruling too.
We have a president and his cabinet that supports anti
Christian foreign and domestic policy, along with his political party and their
supporters, the Main Stream Press.
Christian Tim Tebow has practically been driven from his
career in football, but a guy that comes out as gay is celebrated for about two
weeks now. Obama reached out and called the gay guy.
proves that whenever God is denied by a people, that nation collapses into
slavery to the State, dictatorships, no liberty of any sort.
Every single time there's violence, TEA Partiers, Conservatives, Christians, are assumed to be the perps. Never have they been with the obvious exception of abortion center bombings. The latter is immediately announced and shunned by Christians and Conservatives. Fort Hood mass murders was done by a registered Democrat and Muslim. Columbine murderers were raised by Leftists/Democrats. Virginia Tech mass murderer wrote hate mail to GW Bush and was a registered Democrat. The murderer that shot up the theater in Colorado was a registered Democrat, worked on the Obama campaign, and was an Occupy Wall Street guy. The Newtown murderer was a registered Democrat and anti Christian bigot. For days after Gabby Gifford was shot, the Obama/Democrat steno pool (aka mainstream media) kept repeating it was right wing extremist, which to them is anybody that doesn't adhere to their Leftist lockstep ideology. Not one shooting or terrorist act has been done by a Republican, Tea Partier, Conservative, or Christian.
The Left is all about deconstruction, rejection of the Constitution, destitution, powerlessness for citizens, forced poverty except for the few that support Statism. This is the best summation of how the mainstream media handles all these tragedies.
