The Forgotten Prisoners

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“There is a growing tendency all over the world to disguise the
real grounds upon which ‘non-conformists’ are imprisoned.”
— Peter Benenson, “The Forgotten Prisoners”, 28 May 1961.[1]

“Any person who is physically restrained (by imprisonment or
otherwise) from expressing (in any form of words or symbols)
an opinion which he honestly holds and which does not advocate
or condone personal violence.”
— The article defining the term Prisoner of Conscience.[1]

“Pressure of opinion a hundred years ago brought about the
emancipation of the slaves. It is now for man to insist upon
the same freedom for his mind as he has won for his body.”
— Peter Benenson, “The Forgotten Prisoners”.[1]

“The Forgotten Prisoners” is an article by Peter Benenson published in The Observer on 28 May 1961.[1][2] Citing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights articles 18 and 19, it announced a campaign on “Appeal for Amnesty, 1961″ and called for “common action”. The article also launched the book Persecution 1961 and its stories of doctor Agostinho Neto, philosopher Constantin Noica, lawyer Antonio Amat and Ashton Jones and Patrick Duncan.[1]

Amnesty International

OPEN your newspaper any day of the week and you will find a report from somewhere in the world of someone being imprisoned, tortured or executed because his opinions or religion are unacceptable to his government. There are several million such people in prison—by no means all of them behind the Iron and Bamboo Curtains—and their numbers are growing. The news paper reader feels a sickening sense of impotence. Yet if these feelings of disgust all oer the world could be united into common action, something effective could be done.

In 1945 the founder members of the United Nations approved the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Article 18.—
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion: this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom either alone or in company with others in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Article 19.—
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression: this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

There is at present no sure way of finding out how many countries permit their citizens to enjoy these two fundamental freedoms. What matters is not the rights that exist on paper in the Constitution, but whether they can be exercised and enforced in practice. No government, for instance, is at greater pains to emphasize its constitutional guarantees than the Spanish, but it fails to apply them.

There is a growing tendency all over the world to disguise the real grounds upon which “non-conformists” are imprisoned. In Spain, students who circulate leaflets calling for the right to hold discussions on current affairs are charged with “military rebellion.” In Hungary, Catholic priests who have tried to keep their choir schools open have been charged with “homosexuality.” These cover-up charges indicate that governments are by no means insensitive to the pressure of outside opinion. And when world opinion is concentrated on one weak spot, it can sometimes succeed in making a government relent. For instance, the Hungarian poet Tibor Dery was recently released after the formation of “Tibor Dery committees” in many countries; and Professor Tierno Galvan and his literary friends were acquitted in Spain this March, after the arrival of some distinguished foreign observers…

It would be wonderful if the nations that cannot, will not or have been found not to abide by the Human Rights Constitution of the U.N. be removed or their voices silenced. Instead, the U.N. allows for the worst offenders to head the Human Rights Commission.

Well said~

Western culture as a whole, and the United States in particular, has had a tremendous amount of light from God, and experienced many blessings from His hand. Yet, this culture seems intent upon continuing on its path to self-destruction. A few thoughts from the Christian worldview (while we are still allowed, we would hope, to express them).

 

A Radical Revolution Taking A Stand For A Literal Genesis

Where is that great revival in America? by Don Koenig

If you believed some of the Christian revival hype that was going around this year, you might have been lead to believe that by Thanksgiving our nation would be in sack cloth and ashes humbling themselves and praying and repenting so God would heal our land. That is what some Christian media hucksters tried to sell you, but reality turned out quite differently. It seems that the camp-outs for Black Friday that will be ushering in the commercialism of Christmas will supersede any post Thanksgiving national repentance.

There have been Christian rallies this year that were advertised as the kick off for this American revival but they brought little response. The Billy Graham message, “My Hope for America” on November 7th, was to be the big event that would really get this revival going. Therefore, I have to ask, have you seen any evidence of a revival starting anywhere in America? Let me know if you have seen any real revival taking place across our land because I see no signs of it.

Oh, I know we have those Charismatics on TV that are preaching about revival taking place wherever they go, but it is always the same people who are getting revived in these continuous false revivals. I have heard about their revival claims for 40 years. Heck, if you believe the Charismatic media hucksters, they must have revived Africa ten times over by now. However, if you look at reality, most of their converts in Africa have a hybrid Christianity that mixes Charismatic signs and wonders hype with twisted scriptures added to African traditional spiritualism. It is easy to claim Christian converts when confessing Christianity by many Africans means putting new names on old spirits and pagan practices and going into an emotional altered state.

It is much the same in Charismatic America, except they mix Jesus with New Age spiritualism. There are those that are always claiming to have a prophetic word from the Lord about everything, but their words and works promote themselves or produce money in their own pocket. Revival of false Christianity is not the revival that we need in America. I have had enough experiences with these Word of Faith believers over the years to know that they fall in two main categories. There are the self promoting hucksters and there that are those caught up into endless delusions.

Do we have any evidence that Americans are beginning to repent and revival is coming?  There is more evidence to the contrary.

As I speak black youths are still roaming around cities looking for a victim that they can knock out with one punch. Other black mobs are looting stores and all of this lawlessness is downplayed by the perpetrators and the media as being some sort of game? It is not a game; it is murder and stealing. Black christian churches are so repentant about this violence and lawlessness that the pastors will not say a word of correction from the pulpit or to the media, and black American parents are so repentant that most do not supervise, correct, or teach morality to their children. I see no revival in the black community.

Americans as a whole are so repentant of their own ways that they allow the destruction of the family unit to continue. I believe homosexual marriage will be the law in 16 states by Jan 1st. You can’t just blame federal government if the majority of people in our states are going to vote to legalize and sanction this abomination. Virtually all couples now shack up together before they get married (if they ever do). Many children are not allowed to be born by their mother and almost half of the children in America are brought up by a single parent. I see no revival with John and Jane Doe.

If God’s people are supposed to lead the revival you might think that they might start with the Christian media and purge out the heretics and those endorsing destructive behavior. Instead, once respected teachers are now losing all credibility by aligning with the perverted and by endorsing false teachers. By hobnobbing with the perverted and the heretics, often in the name of Christian unity or patriotism, they have allowed heretical fringe teachings to come into the mainstream. Now,  the whole loaf is slowly being leavened with doctrines of demons and unstable men and women and few will take a stand against anything. I see no revival in Christian leadership.

If there were any revival in our land, you might think that congregations would hold certain Christian pastors accountable for their aberrant teaching and the ungodly associations that they even allow in their own pulpits. I see no revival in our congregations.

Repenting in blue jeans and marijuana ashes and choosing not to rock the boat that is going down the way of Willow Creek and its many tributaries is not going to forestall judgment on America.

The “revival” in America seems to be well on its way to change a democratic republic into an atheist theocracy if you ask me. With the removal of the filibuster in the Senate, many more socialist atheist judges will be appointed that will legislate from the bench and force all to recite their own pledge of allegiance. It just might read – I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the Socialists States of America, and to the Social Democratic Atheist Party for which it stands, one Nation under the Potentate, with oppression and injustice for all dissenters.

This stunning Christian revival in America is likely to bring about the following unless something worse happens first, and that is even more likely:

  • The Constitution will be changed to reflect the collective consensus of the Socialist Atheist Democrats (SAD)
  • There will be a revolt by some Christians and conservatives. The best outcome is the divorce of some conservative states the worst is a civil war
  • A domestic militia that will enforce a police state mainly through nationalized and militarized local police forces
  • Guns will be confiscated and there will be armed militia on every block to keep law and order
  • Any American foreign military will totally be under international control
  • Amnesty for criminals except for political prisoners and violent felons – drugs will be legal and taxed
  • Most sex crimes will be decriminalized
  • Forced re-education (indoctrination) camps
  • The end of most of the middle class
  • America will default on its debt and international bankers will dictate economic policy and taxes
  • The living standard will become about equal to that of Mexico
  • Government will control everyone and everything. They will use electronic surveillance and snitches to bring about total control
  • Mexico and Canada will build a border fence to keep Americans out
  • For all practical purposes America will only have a one party system (SAD) – anything like the Tea Party will be outlawed
  • The economic crash will force America to disarm. America will no longer be a world leader
  • Israel and Jews will be hated in the cities of America and Jews will find it necessary to immigrate to Israel
  • The Med Union (now EU, North Africa, and Middle East), Russia and allies, China and allies, and India and allies will run the world
  • Christianity will only be allowed in state approved churches and the Christian message will be watered down to accommodate other so-called paths to God. There will be no proselytizing. Evangelical Christians will be persecuted
  • Parents will not be allowed to teach religion, sex education, or anything that is not politically correct to their children. Violations will be seen as child abuse. Children will be encouraged to report any such abuse.
  • There will be no tax deductions to support anything that is religious based
  • Home schooling will not be allowed

For those still expecting some great revival in America I would like to ask, revival to what? Revival to the ways of our past that brought us to where we are now? Revival to only then be taken away in the Rapture? Revival to give the gospel of salvation to a world that has already largely rejected it? Revival so that we can have more wealth and materialism in America? Revival for revival sake like many of our churches have?

What would God have to do to get Americans to repent of their sins and make Him Lord of their life? Wars do not work, we have had wars for centuries. Storms do not work, we saw that in Sandy and Katrina. Earthquakes and tidal waves do not work, we saw that in Indonesia, Hatti, and Japan. Anyone see any mass repentance and great revival coming as a result of these recent events?

Unbelievers will explain away most anything as a natural or man caused event. It seems that the only thing that is going to get America or most nations in the world to take notice that there is a God in Heaven that actively determines events on the earth, is something like what happened in Egypt in the days before Exodus.

In those days, God determined that He would bring out Israel by sending ten judgments on a very defiant nation. By the time Egypt was all but destroyed they could not deny that God was involved, but they still chose to rebel against Him by attacking the people who He chose to deliver. Something like that will have to happen again before America and the world in general will even believe that God is actively involved in the world. Even then most would not repent.

Come to think of it, that is what the tribulation is all about. The role of the two witnesses will be much like that of Moses and Aaron. The testimony of the two witnesses will not even bring national repentance but their message will bring some individual repentance. In spite of all the hype you hear about some great American revival, it probably will take tribulation events to produce any.

Emasculating the Faith of Our Fighters

By Ken Connor
“There are no atheists in foxholes.”

When Barack Obama ran for President, he promised to “fundamentally change” America. Over the last five years or so, the American people have gotten a pretty good idea of exactly what those words meant. We’ve seen that President Obama’s vision of America is one in which we are entirely dependent upon government, and government is entirely unaccountable to us. In Obama’s America, political appointees and unelected bureaucrats operate outside the law and without accountability, the Executive branch picks and chooses which laws to follow and which to ignore, and religious liberty is held hostage to the forces of political correctness and social “progress.”
The latest battleground in the President’s campaign for fundamental change is the military, where chaplains and other persons of faith are finding themselves increasingly under pressure to subordinate their religious consciences to the dictates of tolerance and diversity. In response, the Family Research Council is heading up a campaign to increase legal protections for religious expression in the military, and lawmakers on Capitol Hill are taking notice. From the Washington Times:
“Rep. John Fleming, Louisiana Republican, proposed an amendment last month to the 2014 defense authorization bill that specifically protects the “actions and speech” of religious personnel, rather than just their “beliefs.” The third-term lawmaker said the amendment was needed because chaplains feel restricted in how they can pray and preach, and officers are being warned not to display their faith openly.
The Obama administration issued a statement opposing Mr. Fleming’s amendment, saying it limited the ability of commanders to address “potentially problematic speech and actions within their units” and would have a negative overall effect on military units. But the full House supported the amendment and a similar provision, co-sponsored by Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, and Sen. Mike Lee, Utah Republican, has been approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee.”

What kind of religious speech and actions does our President view as “potentially problematic?” Well, maybe an officer has a Bible sitting on his desk and one of his subordinates is an atheist and finds it offensive. Perhaps a commander elects to serve Chick-Fil-A at his promotion party and the gays in attendance are offended because it is a Christian-owned company. Or maybe there is a base-wide promotion of Operation Christmas Child and someone finds it objectionable that the children’s charity is affiliated with Billy Graham’s “Samaritan’s Purse” operation. In short, anything that anyone at any time might possibly find “offensive” is out. Religious speech is out, and overtly-religious activities are out. The only safe haven is the realm of the private – the realm of “personal beliefs.” In President Obama’s “fundamentally changed” America, everyone is free to believe what they want, but the minute you open your mouth you’re on Uncle Sam’s territory. Your rights stop where his authority starts.
Of course, the White House insists that they are great champions of religious liberty, but as usual this declaration is accompanied by a clever rhetorical caveat:
“In a statement emailed to The Washington Times, Pentagon spokesman Nate Christensen stressed that the Defense Department celebrates religious diversity and that military personnel have the full right to exercise their religious beliefs, as long as doing so does not negatively affect the military’s mission or other individuals’ rights.”
Well, when your mission is the perpetual promotion of “diversity” (meaning anything and everything that is not white, male, heterosexual, or Christian) and your definition of individual “rights” allows for the censorship of anyone or anything that doesn’t affirm your progressive worldview, then there is little room left for religious exercise of any real substance.
Critics of the Family Research Council’s report on religious liberty claim that Christians in the military are overreacting. There is no war on religious freedom, they insist, and there is no specific targeting of Christians. On the contrary, if anything, Christians are the ones guilty of pushing their agenda:


”Jason Torpy, president of the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, said the complaints of hostility to religion in the military are in reality an example of ‘Christian privilege’ that leads to the religious oppression of non-Christians. 

’From a position of alarmism, they have caused a lot of unnecessary fear and concern within and outside the military,’ said Mr. Torpy, an Iraq War veteran who identifies himself as a humanist. ‘They’ve pushed for Christian privilege under the guise of religious freedom.'”
Herein lies the rub. If you want to know what’s behind the growing antagonism towards religious expression in the military, it’s the belief that “diversity” requires radical and artificially imposed “equality.” Because a majority of religious believers in America are Christians, it is natural that instances of religious exercise are predominantly Christian. Christianity is by far the most “visible” faith in America; it’s the religion most intimately woven into this nation’s cultural fabric. But this simply won’t do in Obama’s America. Christianity is the religious nail that must be hammered down to the same level as all the others, Constitution be damned.
It is outrageous that the men and women who’ve dedicated their lives to the protection and defense of the Constitution are finding their most basic First Amendment liberties being curtailed. If there is any group that should resist the shackles of political correctness, it is the military. The U.S. military represents the greatest force for freedom this planet has ever known. Soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen have died by the millions fighting to protect the American way of life, including the free exercise of religion and the freedom of speech. We stand against governments who deny these liberties to their own people. We are freedom’s global evangelists. For the President and his ideological allies to attempt to change this is, indeed, an attempt to “fundamentally change”America.
Religious liberty is the reason the first colonists came to these shores. It is part of America’s heritage – embedded in our cultural DNA — and we abandon it at our peril. Freedom loving people on all sides of the aisle should come to the aid of our servicemen and women and stand up for their rights to worship and speak in accordance with the dictates of their consciences. If the White House succeeds in stripping our warriors of their fundamental freedoms, our own emasculation is sure to follow.

A Musing of Current Decisions Before Our Supreme Court Of These United States

US-JUSTICE-SUPREME COURT-FILESIf the Supreme Court of the United States of America decides to uphold the belief of Religious people on the grounds that they are right, then they establish themselves as the givers of the Natural Laws themselves, establishing for all time their unique and high office of Chief Potentate of all things lawful.  They do, however, have a very important role of decisive governmental leadership.  Are not the Laws of Nature’s God His laws, and not ours?  Let us find ourselves on His side in deciding whether or not His laws are His or not.  And, when establishing laws that are under the direction of Religious beliefs, let us know that we tread on the very ground of the human conscience with respect to what is perceivably right or wrong.  When we do that as a people are we not placing on the souls of the people the requirement to follow us who are telling them what is right and wrong, instead of the God of their consciences?  When and if a people, collectively or individually, decide what is right or wrong in their conscience, do they have the right to impose those beliefs on their fellow mankind?  We know it is wrong to follow a group to do what is wrong, no matter how many are in that group.  If we examine the case of the right of the wrong belief of one against the many outcries of the righteous belief of many, do we not make ourselves the object of ridicule from future critics who believe us to be wrong?  For the sake of argument, when we pick and choose the Laws to which Nature’s God gives us individual fundamental freedoms, and leave other parts of the obvious Laws of that same God out of our governing processes, we need to re-think our positions religiously again, don’t we?  If we, with one religion, depose the religious laws of another, under the classification of what is a “religious” or Natural Law of Nature’s God, do we not confuse ourselves to undo good and natural fundamental base-line structure of reason and thinking, if our religious position is therefore changing on an issue as a culture or people?  Therefore, we are actually challenging God Himself as a people, are we not, by deciding to “decide” on the issue.  If the fundamental inalienable rights of God are so easily known by all men, as pointed out in the preamble of the Declaration of Independence, why then do we dote upon the changing of the simple rules, with respect to the absurd, when it is acknowledged by so many the world over by collective Prudence that, given our religious nature, even the very Bible which spells out as immoral acts as in the ten commandments, etc., we conclude that “man lying with man” is unnatural and evil in nature (Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:27), unless our goal is to confuse to the point of bringing down our institutions of our very National Conscience?  We do not even consider the understanding of why prostitution is the obvious defilement of the wholesome marriage union in the first place?  Why do we have to go any further in the defense of the obvious destruction of the institution of moral marriages in this country?  This exposes the very act for what it is in actuality.  Would not the prophet Elijah pour out water again on the altar to show up the prophets of Baal, when God would show the people who is God?  And if that fire consumed the very water when it fell, will not the people of this time capture all those who fundamentally seek to lead a whole nation away from worshiping what is right and true, when the right from wrong is exposed?  Islam teaches to hate it’s enemies in it’s writings.  Christianity teaches in it’s writings to love your enemies. Are those concepts differing?  Yes.  Is God for or against an issue?  Should we be for or against what “Nature’s God” calls evil and unwholesome?  Do we not now choose a religion, and what to follow?  Are not “religious” forces at work to obtain our souls?  Do we want to be burnt up with the water that will be licked up in the trench around the very altar of Elijah’s on the Mount of Decision?  When we come as close to God’s fire as we have, we certainly will at least lose some of our hairs on our head that are all numbered by Him.  Note this part of the epitaph of Thomas Jefferson:

“An Act for establishing religious Freedom.

Whereas, Almighty God hath created the mind free;

That all attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens, or by civil incapacitations tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and therefore are a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, who being Lord, both of body and mind yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either, as was in his Almighty power to do,

That the impious presumption of legislators and rulers, civil as well as ecclesiastical, who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavouring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world and through all time;

That to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical;

That even the forcing him to support this or that teacher of his own religious persuasion is depriving him of the comfortable liberty of giving his contributions to the particular pastor, whose morals he would make his pattern, and whose powers he feels most persuasive to righteousness, and is withdrawing from the Ministry those temporary rewards, which, proceeding from an approbation of their personal conduct, are an additional incitement to earnest and unremitting labours for the instruction of mankind;

That our civil rights have no dependance on our religious opinions any more than our opinions in physics or geometry,

That therefore the proscribing any citizen as unworthy the public confidence, by laying upon him an incapacity of being called to offices of trust and emolument, unless he profess or renounce this or that religious opinion, is depriving him injuriously of those privileges and advantages, to which, in common with his fellow citizens, he has a natural right,

That it tends only to corrupt the principles of that very Religion it is meant to encourage, by bribing with a monopoly of worldly honours and emoluments those who will externally profess and conform to it;

That though indeed, these are criminal who do not withstand such temptation, yet neither are those innocent who lay the bait in their way;

That to suffer the civil magistrate to intrude his powers into the field of opinion and to restrain the profession or propagation of principles on supposition of their ill tendency is a dangerous fallacy which at once destroys all religious liberty because he, being of course judge of that tendency, will make his opinions the rule of judgement and approve or condemn the sentiments of others only as they shall square with, or differ from, his own;

That it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order;

And, finally, that Truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them:

Be it enacted by General Assembly that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief, but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of Religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge or affect their civil capacities.  And though we well know that this Assembly elected by the people for the ordinary purposes of Legislation only, have no power to restrain the acts of succeeding Assemblies constituted with powers equal to our own, and that therefore to declare this act irrevocable would be of no effect in law; yet we are free to declare, and do declare that the rights hereby asserted are of the natural rights of mankind and that if any act shall be hereafter passed to repeal the present, or to narrow its operation, such act will be an infringement of natural right.”

Agenda 21-Grinding America Down

Where Have the Americans Gone?

A great Op-Ed by George Andrews

Today, those on the right have no clear values … that they will fight for. They have been brainwashed to believe that they must be nice and polite, and considerate of everyone else’s feelings. To confront issues directly is considered crass and politically incorrect. The lip service they pay to each new progressive insult is almost always approached from a political point of view. They somehow are incapable of understanding that it is our culture which is under attack, not our political establishments. They firmly believe that the next election will solve every problem, but only if we work and campaign a little harder and support candidate “y” instead of candidate “x.”

Meantime, the progressives incrementally advance upon our social institutions. Our schools, churches, media, workplaces, charitable organizations, youth organizations and others are now little more than satellite groups of, and tools for, the liberal agenda. Take great care! To say that out loud will get you accused of being racist, homophobic or worse. You may very well be sued and/or arrested for a hate crime. Take heart, though, if we elect the right politician next time, he or she will take care of it, by golly.

Communist Goals (1963)

Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35

January 10, 1963

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]

Current Communist Goals

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

The American people have truly been “buried in Communism” by their own
politicians of both the Republican and Democratic parties. One other thing to
remember, Karl Marx was stating in the Communist Manifesto that these planks
will test whether a country has become commmunist or not. If they are all in
effect and in force the country IS communist. Communism, but by any other
name…??

What is Our Nation’s True Condition?

Blessings for Obedience to God:

Deuteronomy 28 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:

3 “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.

4 “Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

5 “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

6 “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

7 “The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

8 “The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

9 “The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. 10 Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you. 12 The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.14 So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

Note on the video: Although we should do our best to be prepared for an economic collapse and coming crisis’, for many, like myself, we cannot build up stock and store. Don’t lose heart, God will supply His children’s needs as He sees fit for His glory. We must be willing to endure hardship as He wills it for us. This is for His Kingdom and glory, not ours. Our rewards will be from His hand and are eternal. If martial law were to be declared by any U.S. president now that Obama has updated the NDAA the way he saw fit our stock and store may very well be taken out from under us. Trust in the Lord God Almighty to lead you and supply your every need.

Its Your Turn, Santorum, And For Good Reason

Yuppers. Its not top dog Mitt Romney who is getting attacked by the liberal media but Rick Santorum. And for good reason, imo. Lately, Republicans have been a bit peeved with the medias’ turning of the waters in any which way they desire their listeners to  float along. Perhaps they hope to snag a few unlearned Repubs and Indys into their increasingly rapid flow to vote for Romney-their choice candidate if ( and it isn’t such a big “if” this election year) they were to vote against their party line. Come to think of it, it may be an attempt to convince their own of whom to cast their vote for in the Republican party without outright leaving Obama to fend for himself. Don’t roll your eyes at that thought! I think Obama has made some enemies, especially after signing the National Defense Authorization Act which makes even them Dems official enemy combatants, along with all of the rest of us peons.  I mean, have you seen the rightfully mad Maddow’s finger shaking at Obama?

Uh-oh! Trouble in Progressive Paradise.

Okay, so we know why Romney has a hedge around him keeping him safe from the liberal lippiness of his horrible hypocritical sins, which is, that he is the closest to their leftist ideals. He is a waffler and can easily be worked with on. Now, Santorum scares the hell out of them. Could it be that he is a Christian? No. Christian candidates aren’t all that fearsome unless they actually tend to  work out those beliefs in the White House…oh. That’s it! Here is Santorum on Gay Marriage and Abortion:

 

Now that’s scary if you are a pro-death in the womb, alternative lifestyles advocate. Yes, as the lefties like to say about Christian political candidates: This man is just another far right wing religious fanatic! Fanatic, yes. And so should every Christian be to the point of such an accusation! Far right wing? That may be but that puts them on the anarchy side of the centrist U.S. Constitution position and that makes the statement not quite true. But its far better than the liberal left wingers who are so far left of the U.S. Constitution they’ve reached dictatorship, as evidenced by Czar Obama.

Sooo…it’s Santorum’s turn and the hits are below the belt which I take to mean that there’s a whole lotta fear goin’ on:

What class…

Knock, Knock, UN…Is Anybody Home?

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Preamble

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and  inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation  of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in  barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the  advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech  and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the  highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have  recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and  oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter  reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and  worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and  have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life  in larger freedom,

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in  co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal  respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,

Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of  the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,

Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to  the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this  Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education  to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive  measures, national and international, to secure their universal and  effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member  States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their  jurisdiction.

Member States

So, are the UN member states doing enough to protect women, children, Jews, Christians, Hindus and homosexuals from human rights violations from a certain religious/political/military group? Especially now that the Arab Spring has become an Arab rude Awakening of dictatorships in the middle east and north Africa, will we see the UN work feverishly to stop the human rights violations that are on a scale never seen before?

I greatly doubt it…

All the Liberal People…

You’re with a great (yeah, riiight!) bunch of libs, OWS-ers!
