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).

“The whole world is delusional…”

What was the number one concern for the USA and Russia back in late 50′s to early 60′s? Ridding the world of nuclear bombs, of which was being done slowly, but surely, until the last ten or so years when Iran wanted to build up their arsenal. Back then, the world leaders were extremely concerned with unstable despots getting their hands on them. Today, the world leaders know what Iran’s intent with nuclear weapons is. Or the possibility of their use by Iran. Iran has not hidden its desire to annhilate Israel. The world is not as delusional as Netanyahu has declared. I think he was being “diplomatic” when he said that. He knows, just as everyone knows, that the political islamists will not be satisfied until Israel is wiped off the map of the world. Some can’t wait for it to happen and I believe our nation is one of those who wish to speed it along.   The world is not a safer place now that Iran has the go-ahead to enrich uranium whose only purpose is to build the bombs which destroys more than its intended target.

These critical days in November will be remembered for years to come. The Free World stands before a fork in the road with a clear choice: Either stand strong and insist Iran dismantles its nuclear-weapons program, or surrender, cave in and allow Iran to retain its 18,500 centrifuges. Years from now, when an Islamic terrorist blows up a suitcase in New York, or when Iran launches a nuclear missile at Rome or Tel Aviv, it will have happened only because a Bad Deal was made during these defining moments. ~Economy and Commerce Minister Naftali Bennett

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.

In My Lifetime…America transforms from honorable to dishonorable in fifty years-a commentary by Don Koenig

The early 1960′s certainly were not perfect but the vast majority of people in America led fairly honorable lives back then. The mid 60′s probably were the very last of the Happy Days of Richie Cunningham. That TV program and programs like the Andy Griffith Show or Ozzie and Harriet were not that far off the mark for small town white America in the 50′s and most of the 60′s. There were a lot of children in those days, birth control was limited, abortion was not legal or acceptable, and there was little confusion about the role of males and females. People in most of America were living pretty honorable lives in those days. My, how things have changed from the honorable toward the dishonorable in much of America in just fifty years.

If there is any one thing that changed our culture, it would be the destruction of the family unit. Fifty years ago people basically stayed married. The man of the house worked and the wife stayed home and raised the children. The family with an extended family of relatives in the same vicinity was something most of us had in common fifty years ago. The family and not government took care of those in need. The family had a stabilizing influence because most were held accountable to the values of their family.

The destruction of the family unit can be viewed from both a sociological and a religious perspective. Creeping socialism with its entitlement programs and big government social engineering is the major sociological reason for the breakdown of the traditional family and liberal teachings coming from our religious institutions was the major religious reason.

In just fifty years America has “progressed” from almost all of our children being raised by two parents to half of our children being raised by one parent. If that is not destructive enough, that one parent usually has to work so children are really being brought up by the social system and by peers. Without strong leadership in the family, the most influential people in many of the lives of American children are street smart punks and the bad characters of our “entertainment” media. They teach children to be disrespectful, foul-mouthed, and to emulate all that is dishonorable in any civil society.

Some Liberals will label me a racist for just giving the history of the family breakdown in America but nothing could be further from the truth. The real racists are those that put their race above the Human Race that most of the rest of us are in (psychopaths could be soulless exceptions). With that said, the breakdown of the family structure in America first started among blacks in the 50′s.

After World War II many southern black men that honorably served in the military looked for jobs in the industrial north. Many of the jobs that black men could only get hired for were the low paying jobs that white men would not do. Many black men lost self-respect and became frustrated and angry. It led to the downward spiral into hostility and behaviors that destroyed many two parent black families.

Some black fathers eventually abandoned their families with the rationalization and the reality that their wife and children could receive welfare benefits and government housing if they had no means of support. Rentals in the northern cities were scare and expensive in the 50′s.  I know some of this firsthand because I lived almost a decade in a government housing project in Buffalo in the 50′s because my blue class father could not find a rental that he could afford. In the early 50′s, that housing project was all white and most had working fathers in the home, but by the early 60′s, it was almost all black and mostly single mothers. The same can be said for most housing projects in the big northern cities.

By the 60′s black absentee fathers became a major factor as to why black teens were becoming increasingly out of control in the big cities. The solution by the white Liberals of America was the Great Society promoted by President Lyndon Johnson but black anger still led to the riots of the late 60′s in many American big cities. Johnson’s Great Society should have been called the Great Socialist Society. These socialistic programs did not offer many employment solutions, instead they increasingly made blacks dependents of the state. The same white Liberals would also encourage black women to abort their babies as the ultimate solution to absentee fathers.

The welfare society soon spread to all the population as godless humanistic social engineers took over media, education, and government.  In the late 60′s there was also the antiwar counterculture movement that led much of the baby boomer generation into hate and disrespect for everyone in authority. All who did not agree with their drug influenced paganism, sexual promiscuity, and Communist idealism became their enemy. Police officers were called pigs, war veterans were called baby killers and spit at, many women became whores, and marijuana was worshiped as if it was God.

The feminist movement that disrespected men and the hyper environmentalism movement that disrespected the needs of the human race played out not long after the hippies. The late 60′s and 70′s were a very disrespectful dishonorable period in our nation and all this rebellion contributed to the breakdown of the historical and honorable family unit.

By the early 90′s some of these disrespectful dishonorable people advanced within government, media, education and corporations. The Bill and Hillary White House and some of the people that were appointed by Clinton reflected the values of the counterculture movement more than traditional America. The Clinton’s pushed communistic socialism dressed in the garb of liberal or progressive programs and these programs continued to expand to this day.

I thought the honorable people of America would never have elected and certainly not have reelected the likes of Bill Clinton, yet they did. Many dishonorable Americans are still talking about putting his tyrannical and ruthless wife in the Oval Office. Bill Clinton gave away America’s jobs and secrets to the Chinese that eventually destroyed the American economy. Even after the likes of Bill and Hillary Clinton, I never thought that Americans would soon elect and reelect a Communist that would put America under the submission of dishonorable atheistic socialistic globalist billionaires, powerful world bankers, and Islamic ideologues, but that is what happened.

I always thought it was possible to elect a black President in America, white America is not as racist as Liberals and black race baiters (would) like Americans to believe. However, I never thought a black Muslim leaning Communist President was remotely possible in America. Obama got elected on a message of hope and change after Bush became a failed presidency. Obama got reelected, but not because he delivered on hope and change, but because the Republican establishment bucked their own Conservative and Libertarian base of support and instead went all-in promoting a Liberal only pretending to be a Conservative.

It is rather ironic that the Democrat Party that once represented adequate waged blue-collar industrial workers, today mostly represents people working near minimum wage service jobs, government employees, and unemployed people on federal assistance. The Democrat Party today also represents multimillionaire and billionaire control freaks that wish to control the lives of all Americans.  The party of small business and the Middle Class are the Republicans, but they are labeled the party of the rich by the Liberal main stream media.  The irony of it all, is that the super rich promote and vote with the Democrats and it is they that control MSM.

The MSM has become very dishonorable and is now the mouthpiece of big socialist government and is the enemy of traditional America. The socialistic elites see nothing wrong with redistributing the wealth to help even out the incomes of others as long as they can continue to grow richer and gain more control over everyone.

The socialists control the American education system and the MSM, so most people in America get disinformation and socialist indoctrination even on regular entertainment programing. If it were not for talk radio and the Internet, you would only hear big government’s version of the truth. The government plantation poor do not even get educated enough anymore to even learn how to learn for themselves. What they are doing to the masses through government controlled MSM can be equated back to the days of slavery when blacks were not allowed to learn to read. Once again the plantation dependents have to get their information and marching orders from the very plantation owners that keep them enslaved.

Most do not have a clue how they are being oppressed by the super-rich. The complicit MSM tells people the top two percent make too much and do not pay enough taxes, but they never mention that the super rich in the top one thousandth of one percent control all MSM,  run the world and escape almost all taxes.

Talk about irony, fifty years ago who would have thought that the USSR would dismantle their own Communist union and the United States would then embrace their failed communistic model. Now Russia is run by a strong President that promotes Russian Orthodox Christianity and morality, opposes the Islamists, and opposes the destructive influence of homosexuality in society, while the United States is run by a weak President who wars against Christian morality in America, embraces or appeases the Islamists, and promotes homosexuality in society.

Fifty years ago the honor of a man was sealed by a handshake, today many Americans promise anything but deliver nothing if they can get away with it.

Fifty years ago the Bible was the moral and spiritual guide to live by in America. Today the Bible is discredited by even Christian universities and is not allowed in the public square.

Fifty years ago Pastors in America taught a moral Biblical message to believers. Today many American pastors teach a prosperity message and how to find God within yourself so you can live a better immoral life now.

Fifty years ago homosexuals were in closets and their sex acts were outlawed by government, but today they are being promoted in public schools and on media and some are being married in American churches. They came out of the closets, started marching in parades and started acting out their perversions in public within just two decades. Americans went from respecting what was honorable in marriage to embracing what was dishonorable in any society in just twenty years.

Fifty years ago the governments in America had laws against gambling because the bookies gave unrealistic false hope to the poor who government viewed as victims. Today the government is the bookie and they promote unrealistic hopes to the poor using TV commercials. The odds of winning are worse than the days when the Mafia ran the numbers racket, and if against all odds you should win, they tax you to take away much of your winnings. That is a perfect example of “progressive” big government at its finest.

Fifty years ago porn was something that perverts watched, today it is something that half the men in America view regularly. In Richie’s days, porn was illegal and expensive; today porn is legal and free to almost everyone that can punch a few keystrokes.

Fifty years ago abortion was illegal in America, 55 million dead babies later, Americans are wondering who will support them in old age but their taxes are still paying to export this abomination to other nations.

Fifty years ago the federal government ramped up its war on drugs. Today the government’s war is more about government control over everyone than it is about stopping the use of illegal drugs. If the government really cared about stopping drugs, it would first enforce its national borders through which most illegal drugs come and outlaw any gangs in our cities that peddle them. The truth is that most of the politicians in Washington and their aides use illegal drugs. All the drug wars really did was enable gangs, fill prisons, kill people, and militarize all police forces in America.

It is quite amazing to me that America could make the transformation from a nation of mostly honorable people to a nation of mostly dishonorable people in just 50 years. That really should not surprise me. America has always been an exceptional nation, even if some world leaders say otherwise.

50 Years Later: Does There Need to be Another March Like This for Jobs for the Black Citizens of America?

I didn’t vote for Obama in either election-the first one because he was shown to be a communist loving man and, more than that, one who cared not a whit for the unborn, which told me that he would care less about anyone else for that matter. Seems that little one issue “rule” of mine has, once again, been proven true, which is why he got nothing but my scorn in blog posts during his run for re-election.

TV-Womens HistoryWe have the equality that the Civil Rights Movement championed. There’s no racism in America as a national or regional norm. Racism is within individuals now and even private business owners cannot discriminate based on skin color. So, as an aside here, don’t give me the bull that racism is alive and well in this nation of America. It just isn’t.

But, our “black”, aka, “African-American” President has done so very little for us to be proud of in helping to maintain the employment opportunities among the minorities whom civil rights leaders of the ’60′s labored for. In fact, he hasn’t done any American citizen a favor economically or jobs-wise.

BRu_tt9CQAAdvah

Here are some good videos from History.com about the March on Washington 1963. We can celebrate America’s repentance of racism but can we be proud of the taking away of opportunities for prosperity for all Americans after 50 years? It shows that progressives are not about progress, imho.

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.

Mychal Masse Speaks His Mind

From a Facebook share but I would really like to give credit where it is due if anyone knows where this was first written:

massieMychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles .

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed …(disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America . They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.

I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people.

The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Obama’s arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?

Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.

I do not like them because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to not being able to be proud of America . I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide.” No president in history has spent millions of dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today.

He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel . His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.

I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.

As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood…

Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America ‘s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”

The History of the Declartation of Independance

The Day of the Lord is Near?

fabian_societyDon Koenig has written, as usual, another post that is fascinating to read, in my humble opinion. In his post titled, Fabian Push For Global Governance Means The Day Of The Lord Is Near, he shows his insight into today’s world events and his knowledge of Bible Prophecy. He writes nothing in stone as a prognosticator might but he surely does have a knack for understanding the signs of the times.   I would love to copy and paste his whole post here since the whole of it is worth the read but I will only leave a tease, er, excerpt, in hopes that you would be curious enough to read the rest of it at his site:

We can see certain things using logic and Bible prophecy that tells us that the Day of the Lord is near and is most likely coming within the next twenty years. Here is but a brief summery.

  • The massive push by Fabian and Leninist world leaders toward global governance.
  • The brainwashing through mass media to get the people to believe in evolution and secular humanism.
  • World economic collapse caused by nations living beyond their means and imbalanced demographics caused by abortion and birth control.
  • The push by world secular leaders and religious leaders to an inclusive all paths theology to any god, or even no god, in place of the worship of the real God of the Bible.
  • The outlawing of Jesus in public through the facade of religious neutrality.
  • The push by world leaders toward global governance of economics.
  • The push to justify and accommodate human depravity even within Christendom.
  • The teaching of social justice, collectivism, relativism, and tolerance to allow obvious moral evils at all levels.
  • Christians following those that itch their ears rather than following teachers of sound biblical doctrine
  • The “Christian” postmodern push to teach people to emotionally and mystically experience God rather than actually teaching the gospel of salvation and sound biblical doctrine. This fulfills the prophetic words of 2 Ti 4:3
  • Christian leaders proof texting or cherry picking scriptures and teaching anything but the scriptures taken in correct context. This also fulfills the prophetic words of 2 Ti 4:3.
  • Heretical books being some of the most popular books being bought and read by confessing believers (2 Ti 4:3).
  • The rising hatred toward premillennialism and pre-trib or pre-wrath Rapture beliefs even within Christendom.
  • Christian leaders that are always on the wrong side of every clear-cut biblical issue and the reasons why so-called Christian people still hire them and follow them.
  • The push in Christendom to ecumenism based on an inclusive social gospel and not an exclusive gospel of salvation that comes through Jesus Christ alone.
  • The naïve belief among most that humans are basically good and all humans are children of God and worship the same God
  • The global indoctrination to brainwash people to believe philosophies of demonically influenced men.
  • The alignment of the nations, as foretold in Bible prophecy.
  • Israel being back in their land, as foretold in Bible prophecy.
  • Israel being surrounded by nations that hate her, as foretold in Bible prophecy.
  • Rising violence, social unrest and injustice all over the world.
  • The world is moving back toward tyrannical authoritarian governments.
  • The rising big brother police states.
  • NATO becoming the enforcement arm of the Roman Empire area.
  • The rise of the total surveillance society.
  • Extraterrestrials as the replacement belief for demonic activity.
  • Abortion and the killing of the innocent all over the world.
  • The Sunni Shiite war and where the religious wars will lead.
  • Whole nations vulnerable because of their total dependence on their own invented technology rather than God.
  • Man being able to destroy the world with his own creations.
  • Human knowledge increasing at an exponential rate to even make what seems unthinkable possible.
  • The planned rebuilding of the Russian military allowing the Gog led invasion and the building of a Chinese superpower that can lead an army that will kill a third of the men on earth and literally fulfill prophecy only in our time.
  • The slaughter of Christians in many places of the world in the name of the state or Allah.

I once heard that a nation could be brought down through government control of its citizen’s money and health. This should be reason enough that all citizens of all political stripes seek the dissolution of the IRS. As Mark Levin said, and I paraphrase: we have become subjects of our government-we’re not citizens anymore.

 

Crony Capitalism Protects Wrongdoers, Harms Consumers, and Disrupts Markets

By Ken Connor
Thanks to a renewed interest in the works of Ayn Rand and high-profile figures like John Stossel, Glenn Beck, and Rand Paul, libertarianism is enjoying a moment in the political sun. And just like America’s two major parties, libertarians can often be blind to faulty logic and flaws within their own ideology. Timothy P. Carney recently wrote a piece for The Atlantic discussing this very problem:
“Voters despise government officials who get in bed with corporations. But what about corporations who cozy up to government? Are companies who use cronyism to grow their profit acting unethically?
The question makes some free-marketeers uneasy. After all, we not only tolerate the fierce pursuit of profit, but also we defend it against taxes and heavy-handed regulation. Milton Friedman famously said, ‘The social responsibility of business is to increase its profits.’
But in the age of crony capitalism, libertarians must declare that some means of pursuing profit are immoral and call on executives to reject them. This would create a positive case for capitalism – arguing that the pursuit of profit, in the context of fair and open competition, helps the whole society. The new corporate social responsibility, redefined for libertarians, must stand athwart crony corporatism yelling ‘stop.’”

Lest his readers underestimate the influence and scope of crony capitalism, Carney provides a thumbnail sketch of the practice in action over the last decade. Seeing our government’s extensive network of corporate welfare laid out in black and white is sobering, to say the least:
“The 2005 and 2007 energy bills required drivers to buy ethanol, created a government loan-guarantee program for private sector green-energy projects, and effectively outlawed the traditional incandescent light bulb. . . . Then, 2008 saw an avalanche of corporate bailouts: Bear Stearns, AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Then the TARP bailed out all of Wall Street, and later General Motors and Chrysler.
Obama came to power in 2009 and signed an $800 billion stimulus bill supported by the Chamber of Commerce and loaded with goodies for the likes of Google and Solyndra. Obama pushed cap-and-trade with the support of the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, a corporate coalition led by GE, which had set up a business to create and trade greenhouse-gas credits.
In June 2009, Obama signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, a regulatory measure that Philip Morris supported and reportedly helped write. . . . The drug lobby wrote significant parts of Obamacare, and the hospital lobby liked the bill enough to file an amicus curiae brief with the Court defending the law from its challenge by states and the small business lobby.
Boeing and the Chamber of Commerce launched a full-court lobbying push in 2011 to save and expand the Export-Import Bank, the government agency Obama loves using to subsidize U.S. Exports – including lots of Boeing jets. In a lesser-known case of regulatory profiteering, Obama hired H&R Block’s CEO to a top position at the IRS, where he crafted new regulations on tax preparers – rules  which H&R Block supported and small tax preparers sued to overturn.”

Regardless of where your political sympathies lie, it’s undeniable that there is an unhealthy and unholy alliance between well-heeled special interests and politicians and policymakers.  It’s all well and good to embrace Ms. Rand’s philosophy of self-seeking individualism in theory, but when this mentality insinuates itself into the markets unchecked by moral and ethical principles, the results are antithetical to freedom and fairness.
Basically, the special interests invest in political campaigns as a cost of doing business, and they expect a handsome return on their investments.  As Mr. Carney explains, that usually comes in the form of pet legislation, subsidies, tax breaks, limitations on liability, preferential treatment . . . the list goes on and on.  Of course, politicians are only too happy to accommodate these special interests in exchange for political contributions that help cement and perpetuate their power. As a result, the free market is stymied; it can’t do what it’s designed by nature to do, which is to sift good companies from bad ones, reward efficiency and innovation, and empower consumers with authentic choice in the marketplace. In effect, crony capitalism is a form of central planning, something that libertarians and conservatives historically eschew. The lack of accountability of the cronies is particularly damaging.  Defenders of free-market capitalism generally maintain that accountability and responsibility must run hand in hand in order for markets to operate effectively. If wrongdoers are not held accountable, their wrongdoing will multiply and the whole system will be corrupted. Unfortunately, many free-market apologists in the political arena are only too ready to offer a double standard to their corporate benefactors. Consequently, we wind up with the excesses that characterized firms like AIG, Fannie Mae, and Enron; we end up with lives lost due to malfeasance at the hands of mining companies and peanut companies, from drugs that cause injury and death and products that explode or fail and cause harm.  We have an epidemic of malpractice and abuse and neglect in nursing homes because wrongdoers aren’t held fully accountable.  All of this is a direct result of corporations taking shortcuts and playing Russian roulette with consumer safety because they know they will be shielded from accountability if something goes wrong. As Madison said, “If men were angels, government wouldn’t be necessary.”  Well, they aren’t, and we do. The world “regulation” is an anathema to free-market apologists, but it shouldn’t be. Proper government regulation and consumer protections are essential to ensure an ethical marketplace. The fewer regulations we have, the more consumer protection mechanisms we need, and vice versa. This is precisely the purpose of America’s civil justice system. It is wrong for corporations to lobby for fewer regulations while simultaneously perverting policy so that they are insulated from accountability in the civil justice arena when they err. When this is allowed to happen, corporate America runs amok and consumers are harmed. Mr. Carney is correct when he says that the case for capitalism must rest on the willingness of free-marketeers to demand ethical conduct from corporations and politicians alike. Our current economic and political problems aren’t just the fault of President Obama, or Nancy Pelosi or any other big government bogey. The sooner libertarians and conservatives alike recognize this, the sooner we can get our economy and our government back on the right track, and given the enormity of the challenges facing us over the next several decades, this can’t happen soon enough.

Barack Obama & The 45 Communist Goals

Sherry:

This was posted prior to the ’08 elections. It is quite a well researched resource tying Obama’s ideologies with the Communist agenda – which aren’t much different.

FTA:

If you don’t know what the 45 Communist Goals are, here is a quick history:

In 1963 Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla. testified before Congress.  She read the 45 Communist Goals as written by Cleon Skousen in his book “The Naked Communist.”  Below you will see the full list, and I’ve taken the liberty to put Obama’s name next to the goals he is allied with based on what he says, does, and the policies on his website.  Keep in mind that most of the goals his name is not listed next to are already implemented or were specific to the Soviet Union.

[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.  –  ObamaObama said he would not further develop nuclear weapons, and wants to eliminate them altogether.  Even though modern technology might better harness control over collateral damage.
  3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament of the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.  –  ObamaSee above.
  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.  –  ObamaObama stated that he would double foreign aid to poor countries to prevent terrorism.  Many of these poor countries are communist or dictator lead...

You have a big decision to make tomorrow in who you believe the best Commander-In-Chief will be. One is a moderate who has friends and enemies in both parties, and the other is a socialist who is already backtracking on his campaign promises to his supporters.

Barack Obama’s senior advisers have drawn up plans to lower expectations for his presidency if he wins next week’s election, amid concerns that many of his euphoric supporters are harbouring unrealistic hopes of what he can achieve.

Sounds a lot like the mesiah is telling you all that he isn’t going to fulfill his promises … just like the Democrat Congress.

The 45 Communist Goals has always been a popular topic on this site, and so I thought I’d see how many of the goals have been endorsed by Obama himself, or his policies.

Romans 3:18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

 

God is What We Need

Your laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty air. You’ve stripped away our heritage, You’ve outlawed simple prayer. Now gunshots fill our classrooms, And precious children die. You seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question “Why?” You regulate restrictive laws, Through legislative creed. And yet you fail to understand, That God is what we need!

“Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, soul, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation’s history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine’s tragedy occurs – politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. “Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts. Political posturing and restrictive legislation are not the answers. The young people of our nation hold the key. There is a spiritual awakening taking place that will not be squelched! We do not need more religion. We do not need more gaudy television evangelists spewing out verbal religious garbage. We do not need more million dollar church buildings built while people with basic needs are being ignored. We do need a change of heart and a humble acknowledgment that this nation was founded on the principle of simple trust in God!

A Murderous Supreme Court Decision

thCAOTEB8Q

Today is the 40th anniversary of Roe V. Wade’s SCOTUS decision to decriminalize abortion. We have murdered 55,772,015+. Source

Genesis 4:9 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?”

“I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

10 The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.

Whenever there is a murder of innocent life the Lord knows because its blood cries out to Him. We, as a nation, are about to be judged for the sin of murdering the most innocent of God’s created lives. We have enemies within our borders under the guise of multiculturalism and amnesty and open borders, tools ready for use at God’s discretion for our destruction. We have a death culture amid a godless society. Life is not at all precious to our POTUS. As the father, so goes the child. Unless we, as a nation, repent of this atrocity we shall not see God’s promise of judgement relented.

The wrath of God is measured in proportion to the sin that provokes it. The  wrath of God is a demonstration of his holiness, his sinlessness, his intense  hatred for all things evil. We, too, should hate sin as God hates sin. As it is  a stench in his nostrils so should it be in ours. As it breaks his heart and  stirs his anger so should it also break our hearts and stir our anger.

In this post-modern age it’s just not cool to speak of God’s wrath. It is the  one attribute of God that we seem to be ashamed of. We cover our lips and  whisper of his wrath as if it is a character flaw. We act like the children of a  father with a gambling problem or a father who spends his weekends tipping the  bottle and ignoring his family. The truth is that the wrath of God affirms his  holiness. He would not be holy if he was incapable of love, nor would he be holy  if he failed to demonstrate his hatred for all that is sinful and unholy.

thHere’s the thing. Abortion was always legal in our country since its beginning in the case of rape, incest and the mother’s compromised health and well-being. The legalizing of abortion was due to making it a birth control option and that is all it was. There never were back alley abortions except for the cases of a shameful or unwanted pregnancy. But how could the SCOTUS and the American people be duped, er, convinced of the necessity for “legalized” abortions unless they were told of dirty back alley abortions that, at times, killed the mother? And then they brought in statistics that were magically produced out of someone’s inspiration! Consider this: abortion was illegal as a birth control method so those who practiced or helped aid a woman in her choice to abort would be a murderer including that woman. How many would readily help with creating such statistics knowing it could mean life in prison or the death penalty by their own admittance? America was duped in 1973 and nearly 56,000,000 unborn lives have paid the price for our hedonism.

Here are some Abortion Facts to consider today. It is a life being aborted (stopped). As a civilized nation its time we abort the atrocity of abortion. If we don’t, we will reap a horrible and overwhelming harvest from the shed blood we’ve sown into our nation’s ground. God will not be mocked. Payday is someday…

This Day in History (I am suspicious of this history because I have never heard this “history”before! My pre-1973 law book says otherwise as far as the legality of abortions before this day 40 years ago)

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.

Still the Same Ol’, Same Ol’

thLast night I was reading this old novel based on the true life of Mary Todd Lincoln and her U.S. President-husband Abe called  Love is Eterrnal, by Irving Stone written in 1954, and came upon an author inserted funny incident pulled by then lawyer Abe which struck me as something we could say is true even today. On page 47 we read that Mary Todd and her sister, Frances, while out shopping happened upon a crowd drawing political debate in the Springfield town square…

Up on the stand was Colonel Dick Taylor, a bombastic orator who was berating the Whigs for being aristocrats and reactionaries, interested only in the piling up of wealth and the conserving of their privileges while he and his fellow Democrats were poor and simple folk interested solely in the welfare of the people.

During the last sentence of the speech a man edged slowly onto the back of the platform, slipped to the side of Colonel Taylor and then, with the completion of the colonel’s peroration, caught the edge of the speaker’s vest and pulled it open, exposing to the audience an expensive silk ruffled shirt, a gold watch chain with seals and several other gaudy jewels…

…”Freinds, I am humble Abraham Lincoln. While Colonel Taylor was making these charges against the Whigs over the country, riding in fine carriages, wearing ruffled shirts, kid gloves, massive gold watch chains and flourishing a heavy gold-headed cane, I was a poor boy, hired on a flatboat at eight dollars a month, and had only one pair of breeches to my back and they were buckskin. Now, if you know the nature of buckskin when wet and dried by the sun, it will shrink; and my breeches kept shrinking until they left several inches of my legs bare between the tops of my socks and the lower part of my breeches; whilst I was growing taller they were becoming shorter, and so much tighter that they left a blue streak around my legs that can be seen to this day. If you call this aristocracy I plead guilty to the charge.”

Since before the Republican Party took root, the Democrats have been hypocritically foisting their own guilty pleasures upon the opposing party as if it would be a pre-emptive strike to blind the voting masses from knowing the truth of who really is after their own selfish interests. Same ol’, same ol’…

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…??

Arguments on Abortion

Ideas in Action Newsletter: Free to Choose?

LeftRightShadow  By Ken Connor

Americans’ affirmation of the “right to choose” is a feature of our national identity.  No matter where you go or what you’re doing, chances are you are confronted with a plethora of choices.  Go to the supermarket and you are confronted with a dizzying array of options for each and every product you wish to buy.  Seventeen brands of Greek style yogurt.  Forty-five flavors of coffee creamer.  Thirty-seven different kinds of peanut butter.  The same may be said of cell phone carriers, automobiles, clothing brands… you name it.The freedom of “choice” also figures prominently in the political realm, and is generally associated with the liberal or Democratic side of the aisle.  Republicans are often painted as cantankerous old curmudgeons who cling blindly to guns, religion, and “the way things used to be done.”  Their rigidity, we are told, often comes at the expense of “choice.”  When the rhetoric is peeled away and the issues scrutinized, however, it turns out that conservatives are actually the true champions of choice while liberals tend to oppose it, unless of course the choice in question is the choice to kill your unborn child.Last week America tuned in as swarms of Union workers stormed the Michigan state capitol to protest the passage of landmark “right to work” legislation.  Reporters were punched and threats of “blood in the streets” were levied by union representatives outraged by the notion that free individuals should have the right to choose whether or not to join a union.  You see, unions and their Democratic cohorts in the House and Senate (and the White House, for that matter) don’t support that kind of choice.  They believe that when it comes to your work and your money, the government and their favored allies should call the shots.  They think you should only have a right to work if you first pay your dues to Big Labor, which in turn lines the coffers of Big Government in the form of generous campaign contributions.  Okay, so maybe Democrats aren’t in favor of “choice” when it comes to work, but what about education?  Surely they should be in favor of a system that allows parents the right to choose the best education for their children.  Unfortunately, no.  Turns out that Democrats care more about currying favor with the NEA than they do about ensuring access to quality schools for those children most in need of educational opportunity.  Take the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, for example.  This program enables inner-city children to use vouchers to escape the District’s failing schools and attend quality institutions like Sidwell Friends, where – incidentally – the Obama daughters go to school.  Sadly, however, what’s good for the presidential goose is not so good for the inner city gander: President Obama and his cohorts in Congress have worked to kill this program since he took office.  When it comes to education, the President and Democrats prefer to make the decisions for the children of the hoi polloi than have parents to make the decisions for themselves.  Uncle Sam and the teachers’ union have it all under control, thank you very much.What about religious liberty then?  Do liberals support the freedom to choose how you practice your religion in the health care arena?  Again, the answer is no.  President Obama and his Secretary of Health and Human Services see nothing wrong with limiting religious and economic liberty in the name of mandated free birth control and abortifacients for all.Which brings us full circle to the one “choice” that is truly sacrosanct to the Left: abortion.  Tread on this sacred freedom and you might as well break into the National Archives and light the Declaration of Independence on fire.  Suggest that the government might have a legitimate role in safeguarding the God-given liberties of unborn children and you’ll be labeled a hateful misogynist who wants to “dictate to women what they do with their own bodies.”  Nevermind the fact that Big Brother feels perfectly justified in telling us how big our drinks can be, what kind of light bulbs we can buy, where we can and can’t smoke a cigarette, etc… Heaven forbid we use the force of law to protect the lives of innocents who can’t make choices for themselves.  That would be crossing the line.It’s true that choice is under attack in America, but not from whom the media and other mainstream formers-of-opinion would have you think.  If you want to know who the real enemies of free choice and free thought are in America, look no further than the nearest liberal Democratic representative or Left-leaning think tank.

Oops, Are You Offended?

Sherry:

I just have to share…well said, luchadora!

Originally posted on Patriot Army of America:

If you’re an easily offended person, you might want to stop reading now, because this may offend you. And frankly, I don’t care. I have opinions, thoughts, and feelings about things, I like to express them, and if you don’t agree with me, that’s fine, we can agree to disagree. If, however, you’re offended, that’s your problem, not mine, and I’ll still sleep well tonight. I’ve never lived my life according to what other people thought of me, and I don’t intend to now. Your opinion of me is none of my business. By the way, this prologue probably doesn’t apply to my friends, because you’re just as outspoken as I am, and rightly so. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Racism. What a dirty word, made even dirtier when it doesn’t apply. There is a concerted effort in our society today to call anyone a racist who doesn’t agree…
