Christians Not Welcome in Baton Rouge?
Posted on July 31 - from Barb Wire
[Ed. note: There is a growing sentiment against the Christian values that
built and protected our country. More specifically, against the one who gave us those values.]
The degrading comments of a city councilman aligned with the Baton Rouge Area Chamber
and other prominent businesses in my hometown are sending a message to Christians and
conservative businesses that they are not welcomed in Louisiana’s Capital City. In
attempting to pass a special rights measure based upon sexual behavior last Wednesday,
Councilman John Delgado ironically lashed out at opponents in his closing remarks alleging
that their opposition to the controversial ordinance was using the council to impose a
“Christian version of Sharia law on the citizens of Baton Rouge.” The comments came after
three and half hours of public comment on the so-called “Fairness Ordinance”, a measure
similar to the one recently adopted by the Houston, Texas council and now the focus of a
citizen-led referendum to overturn it.
The “Fairness Ordinance” would create a new cause of action in District Court for
allegations of discrimination on the basis of various categories, including sexual
orientation and gender identity, something the Louisiana Constitution explicitly prohibits.
A 13-year-old on the day her mom told her she had an abortion
Posted on July 30 - from Life News
[Ed. note: "I survived Roe vs. Wade. Roe vs. Wade will not survive me."]
We had just dropped my brother and sisters off at Faith Formation. It was a Wednesday
evening: January 8, 2014. I would be 13 in just over two weeks.
My mom said, “Zoe, I need to talk to you. Let’s go in the meeting room.” I thought we
were going to talk about puberty. I got nervous and fidgety. “Mama,” I kept saying, “I’m
not ready for this talk. I don’t want to know about it.” We got to the conference room and
Mama sat down. I sat a few chairs away. “Sit here please, Zoe,” she said. “I don’t want
to,” I whined. “Zoe,” she said firmly, “sit next to me.” I reluctantly sat down next to
her, dreading what she had to say. What she said next would change my life forever. “Zoe,”
she said, “in December of 1998, I had an abortion.” I felt like I had been slapped in the
face. My whole world was rocked. I wanted to puke, I wanted to cry, I wanted to run away
and hide. This amazing person, someone I have looked up to my whole life, my pro-life
inspiration, had had an abortion.
I stared at the glassy table where we were sitting. Mama was crying now. She told me how
her boyfriend at the time had had a pregnant girlfriend before and how he said that he
would “take care of it”. She told me how she had woken up after the abortion and thought
how lucky she was to have such a great boyfriend. She told me she had gone crazy in the
days after the abortion. She explained everything.
Doctor Disobeyed A Gun Free Zone, And Saved Lives Because Of It

Obama’s Crackdown On Leakers Damages Constitutional Protections, Activists Say
Posted on July 29 - from Personal Liberty Digest
[Ed. note: The report describes one journalist deliberately creating a
misleading electronic trail by calling a large number of possible sources before a story
comes out to disguise who the information came from.]
Recent revelations of the U.S. government’s pervasive surveillance program and its
crackdown on leaks are making it increasingly difficult for American journalists and
lawyers to do their jobs, the advocacy group Human Rights Watch and the American Civil
Liberties Union said in a report released Monday.
It’s becoming impossible to ensure privacy for sources and clients by protecting their
information, the report found. Government officials not only are substantially less willing
to be in contact with journalists than they were a few years ago, but they also are even
refusing to discuss unclassified matters or personal opinions.
“They are afraid of losing their security clearances, being fired or even being
prosecuted,” Alex Sinha, the author of the report and a fellow at Human Rights Watch,
said in a news conference at the National Press Club.
The Importance of Integrity and Public Virtue of Public Officials
Posted on July 28 - from Truth Dispatch
[Ed. note: The American people do not trust our government because the
leaders we elect have no integrity and public virtue...]
Original sin and the rise of moral relativism is why integrity and public virtue among
our public officials is so important. Trust in our government is at an all-time low, not
just the Congress, but also the Presidency and the Judiciary. The lack of trust in our
government is not because the American people think the government is not doing anything
for them; it is doing too much for us. The American people do not trust our government
because the leaders we elect have no integrity and public virtue, and they have no ethics
to maintain public virtue.
When a politician violates ethics rules and breaches his integrity, we politicize the
situation. We blame each other for punishing those in the opposite party, but reward
those ethics violators who are in our own party. Both of which have become true. When
ethics are violated regardless of political party, we should stand united in our demand
that they resign and are punished for their wrongdoing.
Conservatives, libertarians and liberals should all worry about the militarization of police
Posted on July 28 - from FoxNews
[Ed. note: If cops continue to take a warlike us-versus-them approach
to policing the population, they just might bring the left and right together.]
I want the police to be better armed than the bad guys, but what exactly does that mean today?
Apparently it means the Pentagon and Department of Homeland Security equip even the
tiniest rural police departments with massive military vehicles, body armor and grenade
launchers. The equipment is surplus from the long wars we fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.
To a hammer, everything resembles a nail. SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams
were once used only in emergencies such as riots or robberies where hostages were taken.
But today there are more than 50,000 "no-knock raids" a year.
The Federal Government is not Working For Us, But Against Us
Posted on July 26 - from Freedom Outpost
[Ed. note: With a president who doesn't like our country and, in many ways,
most Americans, this is what we get.]
For the last six years, our governmental policies have turned against the people they
are supposed to serve. Since Obama became president, "we the people" are getting hosed big
time. Countless new regulations that were sold as a quick fix to all our woes, are instead
a costly labyrinth of bureaucratic red tape. Instead of being less expensive, they are so
overpriced that they really aren't worth what we are being forced to pay; not forgetting
that thousands and thousands of new government personnel that have been hired, but the
money that some of these agencies is wasting is really criminal. Our government is actually
growing at a faster rate than our beleaguered economy can sustain. And really, what benefits
are American citizens really getting, besides a more costly infrastructure that continuously
feeds on the American taxpayer?
We are told by liberals and Democrats that we need more laws, more regulations and, of course, more
money through higher taxes, to run the whole thing. That's the joke. It never gets more efficient
and it never gets less expensive, but liberals and Democrats tell us that without these new costly
regulations and services the entire infrastructure will come crashing down around us and we'll all
be thrown back into the dark ages.

Planned Parenthood Counselor Caught Telling Teen to Let Her Boyfriend Beat Her
Posted on July 24 - from Life News
[Ed. note: Some girls like being “spanked,” “hit,” or “whipped,” said
Abortion activists claim pro-lifers are engaging in a “war on women:” by passing
legislation to protect women and unborn children from abortion. But a new expose’ video
catches a Planned Parenthood staffer engaging in her own war on women.
The pro-life group Live Action released the third installment today in its “SexEd”
investigative series, showing a Planned Parenthood staffer in Portland, Oregon offering
disturbing sex counseling to someone she thinks is a fifteen-year-old girl. The video
clearly shows the counselor encouraging the young girl to allow herself to be victimized
in violent sexual encounters with her partner.
The staffer tells the investigator that “it’s very common to experiment with different
things,” including “being tied up” and “whipped” and “the baby thing, where they will put

Posted on July 23 - from Tea Party Nation
[Ed. note: Is there anything we can do to find an agreement of sorts

Tragedies like this should evoke instant " cease fires " among not inner city chocolate
Klansmen who clearly don't care, but also warring political tribes popularly known as
Black conservatives and Black liberals. When 11 year olds like Chicago's Shamiya Adams
are killed by stray bullets, and such outrages aren't unusual, its clear competing
advocacy of traditional values or liberation face steep uphill climbs to fruition.
Every one of these cases involved a cute boy or girl whose smiling face deserved far
better than mindless murder in a hostage Hood where this is a norm.
Would alliances between otherwise bitter community foes like Al Sharpton and Allen West
offer the missing hammer Black America needs to beat thugs I call chocolate Klansmen into
submission? Would this demonstrate we finally united against their rampages? Imagine
marches with Dr. Ben Carson and Jesse Jackson arm-in-arm, leading outraged residents and
supporters through the heart of the worst areas, with people organized afterward to make
these hell holes safer?
Obama's LGBT Executive Order endangers religious liberty
Posted on July 22 - from Fox News
[Ed. note: This administration believes gay rights trump everyone

President Obama signed an executive order Monday barring federal contractors from
discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity – ignoring the
pleas of Christian and other faith leaders to include an exemption for religious
“Thanks to your passion and advocacy and the irrefutable rightness of your cause,
our government – the government of the people, by the people and for the people – will
become just a little bit fairer,” the president told a gathering in the White House.
The executive order would prevent Christian and other religious organizations with
federal contracts from requiring workers to adhere to the tenets of their religious beliefs.
Christianity Today reports the order could impact religious non-profits such as World Vision,
World Relief and Catholic Charities.
Who Opposes Christ and Why ?
Posted on July 21 - from Truth Dispatch
[Ed. note: It's been said that truth is the new hate speech.]
Our military now has a foundation that opposes Christianity within its ranks. A
national level advisor lobbies to have all references to Christianity removed from all
military bases, even the military academies. Why? Who are these people and what do they
actually support? Are they merely anti-Christian? Muslims? Atheists? Or anti-God?
Surprisingly, that national advisor, Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military
Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) wrote, “Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs
of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing
their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates
in our nation’s armed forces.” He is not a Muslim nor practicing Jew.
He cites Dr. James Dobson—the famous Christian founder of Focus on the Family—as
“illustrating the extremist, militant nature of these virulently homophobic organizations’
rhetorically-charged propaganda.” Regarding those who teach orthodox Christian beliefs
from the Bible, Weinstein concludes, “Let’s call these ignoble actions what they are:
the senseless and cowardly squallings of human monsters.”
Government Acts as if All Income Is Its Own
Posted on July 21 - from Money News
[Ed. note: Our government believes that it's priorities, "needs" and
desires take precedence over the welfare of the citizens.]
The government is taking away the rights of citizens to control their own income, says
Stanford University economist Michael Boskin.
"Property rights and the rule of law are essential foundations for a vibrant economy,"
he writes in The Wall Street Journal. "When they are threatened, or uncertain, the result
is inefficiency, rent-seeking, a larger underground economy and capital flight."
"Individual rights to capital, land and the fruits of one's labor are threatened —
in many cases redistributed from creditors to debtors, from those out of political power
to those in power, and especially from young to old. And a much larger battle is looming."
Holocaust denied by students in Rialto school assignment
Posted on July 18 - from Los Angeles Daily News
[Ed. note: The godless public education system revising history to
fit its goals of changing our past so as to change our future.]
Dozens of Rialto eighth-graders questioned whether the Holocaust occurred in essays
written for an in-class assignment this spring. Rialto Unified School District
administrators, besieged by criticism after the assignment became public in May, claimed
at the time that none of the students who completed the assignment questioned or denied
the Holocaust, but a survey of the students’ work by this news organization found numerous
examples of students expressing doubt or flatly denying that the Holocaust occurred.
“I believe the event was fake, according to source 2 the event was exhaggerated,” one
student wrote. (Students’ and teachers’ original spelling and grammar are retained
throughout this story.) “I felt that was strong enogh evidence to persuade me the event
was a hoax.”
In some cases, students earned high marks and praise for arguing the Holocaust never
occurred, with teachers praising their well-reasoned arguments: “you did well using the
evidence to support your claim,” the above student’s teacher wrote on his assignment.
The Collapse of America - A Plan Decades in the Making
Posted on July 17 - from Freedom Outpost
[Ed. note: Cloward - Piven explained.]
While many people are awakening to the Obama administration and their attempts to
undermine our national sovereignty, it must be stated that this has been an ongoing effort
for many, many decades. Barrack Obama is merely a tool selected to get an already
conditioned population to accept the final stages of a plan that will see the United
States surrender its sovereignty and merge into a global governing structure where she
will no longer be respected as a world super power, but viewed merely as another third
world nation that is morally equivalent to all others. There are three main pillars of
our society and culture that need to be changed from the inside in order for this
transformation to take place; immigration, education and the military. It is hard to
argue, even for those who adamantly oppose any idea of conspiracy theories, that these
three elements of our society have not been radically affected in recent years. This
article will offer a brief analysis into the events taking place and the historical roots
behind them. This is indeed a planned collapse, and to be calling it out for what it is
now is indeed too little too late.
As the crisis along our border escalates, we are hearing more and more on the whole
situation being a planned event to precipitate the total collapse of our nation. Even
congressmen are coming out and calling this a deliberate application of the Cloward &
Piven strategy. For those who may not know, the Cloward & Piven strategy was the work of
two Sociology Professors at Columbia University, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven,
designed to organize the nation's poor and minorities into a power base from which the
country, through the democratic process, could be converted into a socialist state. One
of the key components of this strategy was the idea of overwhelming the nation's welfare
system to the point where it collapses, and the government would then be forced to adapt

Even before the shooting stops between Israel and Palestinian terrorists, the one

The tiny Jewish state is under fierce attack, with millions of its citizens spending
long hours in bomb shelters. Yet any response beyond a mere tit-for-tat is labeled
disproportionate, putting Israel in the impossible position of being damned if it does

Of course, it must strike back hard, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears

The Immorality Of Paper Money
Posted on July 15 - from Personal Liberty Digest
[Ed. note: With the Fed creating dollars out of thin air to buy securities
that they can sell for dollars people earned... no good can be found.]
One of today’s most common economic fallacies is that the soaring stock market is
evidence of economic recovery. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Stocks have almost tripled since the 2008 collapse, but that stock growth stems from
Federal Reserve money printing (inflation) and near zero interest rates. The Fed’s balance
sheet has grown more than fourfold since 2008 — to $4.3 trillion — and was used to prop up
the “too big to fails.” That money had to go somewhere.
It has found its way into the stock market because U.S. Treasuries are paying less than
the rate of inflation; and corporate bonds, certificates of deposit and other fixed-income
products pay even less. This and price inflation (currency devaluation) is fueling the rise,
not positive economic growth or common sense.
Census Bureau Rep To Homeowner: “There Is Nothing Private, Sir.”
Posted on July 14 - from Uncorporate Media
[Ed. note: Mere bureaucrats are becoming more adament about our obedience
to their unjustified and unconstitutional demands.]
On the 11th of June, 2014, UCM posted a video showing a Southern California resident
having, what some might call, a “mildly heated verbal denial of cooperation,” after a
second visit by a U.S. Department of Commerce Census interrogation agent.
There is no Constitutional provision that says any questions must be answered, in fact.
Furthermore, a Census badge is not a delegation of enforcement authority, and he did not
have a court order. He was in trespass after being asked to leave the first time. Statutes
must derive from “Constitutional authority”. Unless anyone can show us a Constitutional
provision that authorizes someone to make their way onto private property and threaten
people to provide personal information, UCM will maintain the position that Agent Gregg
was breaking the law and harassing the resident.
The most shocking thing about this interaction was what Agent Gregg boldly stated
throughout this dialog: Starting at time code1:14, you can hear the resident ask Agent
Gregg, “Are you aware of the Constitution?” Agent Gregg replies, “Yes, sir I am” The
resident replies “Cool, then you understand.” Agent Gregg responds, “I understand what?
Are you aware that this is a mandatory survey from the U.S. Department of Commerce?” Later
in the video, the resident states, “That’s the whole point of private property. Private.
Private property.” Agent Gregg’s disappointing rebuttal? “There is nothing private sir.”
American Everyman: The Ballad Of John Q. Public
Posted on July 11 - from Personal Liberty Digest
[Ed. note: Where every man is looked on with suspicion... not because
he harms anyone, but because he does not want to be harmed.]
Most people go through most of their days without even denting the law, much less breaking
it. Not counting the beneficiaries of President Barack Obama’s open enrollment plan for
illegal aliens, there are more than 300 million Americans, most of whom won’t build a rap
sheet beyond the occasional speeding ticket. Despite our professed desire to “stick it to
the man,” we are, by and large, a fairly placid lot. Yet our government has developed an
ugly tendency to treat us like we’re criminals, except for those of us who actually are
criminals. The latter group, of course, comprises people who are merely misunderstood,
those are victims of the evil white patriarchy and the Attorney General (currently, that’s
Eric Holder, who’s all three).
But John Q. Public isn’t much of a threat to anyone or anything beyond that
double-baco-cheese-monster burger with large fries he ordered for lunch. Sure, he might
tip the speedometer a few nicks past 65 on the interstate from time to time. And he did
jaywalk on his way to McCoronary’s to stuff the aforementioned myocardial infarction into
his already-prodigious gullet. But he’s managed to get this far in life without any major
run-ins with Johnny Law.
Nonetheless, Public is the one who gets the second look from Uncle Sam. Since sometime
around January 2009, it’s the everyman whom the government began treating like public enemy
No. 1. His Internet usage is monitored by the National Security Agency. Every time he emails
pics to Mom from the trip to Fort Walton Beach, Fla., the government keeps a copy for itself.
When he calls Mom to check on how her new hip is treating her, odds are a third party in the
bowels of Fort Meade is getting the update as well. Of course, the NSA probably already
knew how the new hip was working out; it probably downloaded her medical records months
ago. And God forbid he donates a couple bucks to the local Tea Party chapter. If so,
he’s probably getting ready for an Internal Revenue Service audit/proctological exam.

That is essentially the message of an outstanding new book by Jason Riley about blacks in

help blacks are in fact harmful, sometimes devastatingly so. These counterproductive policies
range from minimum wage laws to "affirmative action" quotas.
NOW Calls Little Sisters of the Poor “Dirty,” Claims Nuns Use Religion to Attack Women
Posted on July 9 - from Life News
[Ed. note: Attacking people who dedicate their lives to helping others is an
indication of character.]
The National Organization of Women (NOW) has compiled a list of what they’re calling the
“Dirty 100” — organizations who have filed suit against the HHS Contraception Mandate.
One of the “Dirty 100? organizations that NOW claims is simply “using religion” to
discriminate against women, is, in fact, a group of Catholic religious sisters called the
Little Sisters of the Poor.
The Little Sisters of the Poor take vows to tend to the needs of the elderly poor. They
are opposed to providing contraception to their employees as contraception violates the
teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Little Sisters of the Poor are not considered
to be a “religious employer” and exempt from the mandate as they employ and care for people
of all faith backgrounds.
More Evidence of Illegal 'Cash for Vote' Operation by Cochran Campaign Piles Up
Posted on July 9 - from GotNews.com
[Ed. note: Thad Cochran's campaign filing add fuel to the claims that
the Republican used the old Democrat strategy of passing out "walking around money". The
differences between parties are getting smaller every day.]
Cochran campaign staffer Amanda Shook was illegally reimbursed for over $40,000 cash in
walking around money during the Republican primary, according to Federal Election Commission
(FEC) filings. The payments are described as "Reimbursed Expenses - Campaign Walkers."
Regulation 11 CFR 116.5 expressly defines funds advanced by campaign staff for any reason
other than travel or subsistence as a loan. It is illegal under FEC rules to loan money to a
campaign in excess of the contribution limit of $2,600. "[I]f your loan exceeds the limits,
it is an illegal contribution, even if it is later repaid in full," notes the FEC website.
Shook was previously alleged to be one of the sources of street cash in an alleged
vote-buying operation in a Gotnews.com report from the Reverend Stevie Fielder.

[Ed. note: Using the progressive government's argument, if there is nothing
wrong with GMOs, why would labeling them be a problem? We can watch to see if our "leaders"

Farm, Allen brings a lifetime of sustainable farming experience to the 40 acres of
vegetables and berries that line the Connecticut River in East Thetford, Vt., on land
conserved by the Vermont Land Trust.
A professor and activist, Allan’s bio features many credentials, from founder of the
Sustainable Cotton Project and the California Certified Organic Farmers Organization to
policy adviser to the Organic Consumer Association. If all goes according to plan, Allen
may soon add a new credential to the list: litigant in Vermont’s multimillion-dollar GMO
lawsuit with the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association.
So when Allen speaks on the impact of GMO labeling on food manufacturers, people listen.

Here’s why cops should be required to wear a lapel camera while on duty
Posted on July 7 - from Washington Post
[Ed. note: With so much controversy surrounding public interactions
with law enforcement, this is an idea whose time may have come.]
Police officers in Rialto, Calif., carry cameras to record their every action while on
duty. The city says the program has reduced complaints against police officers by 88 percent
during the first year.
The idea is sparking debate across the country. On Wednesday, the American Civil
Liberties Union endorsed the idea. In a short position paper endorsing the idea, it also
emphasized the potential for the technology to be misused, and recommended policies to
minimize the potential downsides.
"Although we generally take a dim view of the proliferation of surveillance cameras in
American life, police on-body cameras are different because of their potential to serve as a
check against the abuse of power by police officers," the civil liberties group argues.

In 1928, Edward L. Bernays, the “father of public relations,” wrote in his

our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in
this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
"In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or

You can wage the non-co-ops individually, or as a group. State efforts are

How to Topple a Tyranny
Posted on July 2 - from Instead of Politics
[Ed. note: Four pillars that support the ambitions of one who would
Man is a fallible beast, and the moral strength to resist the lure of power to
control others without reprisal is as rare as hens' teeth. The worst class of
offenders are drawn to the occupation of politics because, without the checks and
balances of market discipline that is dispensed in a competitive marketplace, one
is not held accountable for one's offenses. Only when he is granted immunity from
the natural corrective process can anyone hold a monopoly over a good or service
for any length of time, because his competitors will quickly seize the opportunity
to gain a share of the wealth.
Certain conditions are required, however, in order for a slithery serpent to
evolve into a soaring, fire-breathing dragon. A tyranny can only come to birth when
a subsidy of four key industries has been granted by his subjects or a third party;
defense, communication, finance and law. The tyrant has many tools at his disposal
to enslave both his subjects and his enemies, and thus grow his empire. But none of
them can be fully maintained without monopolization of these four key industries.
Denationalizing any of the four will significantly reduce his power to manipulate
others, but eliminating all four monopolies will render him fully mortal once again.
The Pillar of Defense
The first of these, defense, has historically been provided through a
centralized military that could be used both defensively and offensively. Even the
liberal US Constitution provides for a centralized military that can be funded
temporarily by the States out of the general fund when the militias of individual
States are deemed unfit to supply their own protection. The State delegations held
out on ratification of the US Constitution until the primacy of the militia over
the Army was included. Centralization, however, enabled it to become thoroughly
engulfed by the federal military-industrial complex. It was not a difficult
transition, however, because politicians at both the federal and state levels
shared control over their management. Of course, centralized control over the
military makes all rights and freedoms irrelevant. Even the rights nominally
guaranteed by a Constitution are rendered void, because those with the power to
enforce them also have the power to violate them - which becomes increasingly
attractive. The power to subjugate an official foreign enemy is the power to
subjugate a peaceful citizenry. A tyrant makes no distinction.

“On Tuesday, the representatives of the EU Member States in the Council adopted
a decision on the so-called ‘solidarity clause’. Were a disaster or a loosely
defined crisis to occur, the organs of the European Union would be obliged to
assist using all the instruments at their disposal. This includes military
resources”, warned Member of the Bundestag Andrej Hunko.
The proposal on ‘arrangements for the implementation by the Union of the
Solidarity Clause’ was jointly presented by the Commission and the EU High
Representative in 2012. A country can invoke the “solidarity clause” if a crisis
“overwhelms its response capacities”. Mention is made of operational, policy and
financial instruments and structures.
Andrej Hunko continued: “The adoption at the General Affairs Council took place
in secret: the point was not mentioned on the agenda of the meeting. The press was
not informed. Yet this is one of the most controversial clauses contained in the EU
treaties. That is precisely the reason why agreement on the details of the
solidarity clause was postponed to a later point at the time of the signature of
the Lisbon Treaty.
Climate Alarmists Never Quit!

[Ed. note: One more reason to take you children out of the government
In the same way Americans are discovering that the Cold War that was waged from the end
of World War Two until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 is not over, Americans
continue to be subjected to the endless, massive, global campaign to foist the hoax of
global warming--now called climate change—on everyone.

natural phenomenon, and that requires abandoning fossil fuels in favor of “renewable” wind and
“It is not surprising that climate alarmists, who desire above all else blind allegiance
to their cause, would demand all school teachers toe the ‘official party line’ and quash any
dissent on the subject of man-made global warming in their classroom,” says Craig Rucker, the
Executive Director of co-founder of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT). “What is
absurd is that any teacher or free-thinking person for that matter would listen to them.”
Economist Brusca: Fed's Easing Will Spark Inflation
Posted on July 31 - from Money News
[Ed. note: Could it be that the Federal Reserve's efforts to control
inflation could backfire? Is the Pope Catholic?
Inflation hawks warn that the Federal Reserve's massive stimulus program will accelerate
price increases, and independent economist Bob Brusca says they're right. The Fed has left
its federal funds rate target at a record low of zero to 0.25 percent since December 2008.
And its balance sheet has mushroomed to $4.4 trillion through quantitative easing.
"The Fed's balance sheet is huge," Brusca told CNBC. "I think they kept interest rates
very low for a very long period of time." The central bank probably won't recognize the
inflation threat until it's too late, he said. "They think there's a lot of slack, and
therefore when bad things happen, they don't believe it. And that's the problem. When bad
things happen you have to believe it."
Consumer prices rose 2.1 percent in the 12 months through June. Internal strife over
policy also is a problem at the Fed, Brusca said. "A division is also going to make it
harder to do the right thing in a timely fashion."
“FBI Most Wanted Terrorists”…30 Muslims and 2 Progressive Liberals. NO Right-Wing Patriots.
Posted on July 30 - from DC Clothesline
[Ed. note: Facts are facts... but don't bother the regime with them.
There has been a lot in the news the last two days about Joanne Deborah Chesimard who
is the first woman ever placed on the “FBI Most Wanted Terrorists” list. Joanne’s
connections with the Weather Underground and Obama mentor Bill Ayers have been much
publicized. Rather than beat that story into the ground I thought I would take a moment
to make a point that fails to be made often enough.
With all the constant rhetoric about the dangers of the American Patriot and
right-wing-Christian terrorists, the facts still remain. The current list of “FBI
Most Wanted Terrorists” contains 32 people. 30 of those people are Muslims and two
are left-wing liberals. In addition to Chesimard, Daniel Andreas San Diego is the
other non-Muslim on the list.
Who is San Diego? He is an animal rights activist who is accused of involvement in
two San Francisco bombings.
Beware GMOs; They Set You Up For Cancer, Other Diseases
Posted on July 30 - from Personal Liberty Digest
[Ed. note: Currently, the only way for you to avoid GMO foods is to
eat organic food.
If you were to write a movie about evil scientists plotting to insert secret ingredients
into the food supply in order to make humans sick, you’d have a hard time coming up with
something more inventive and potentially more dangerous than genetically modified (GMO)
Even though GMO ingredients are not listed on food labels, they have already infiltrated
our dinner plates. And this technological change to our food has the potential for
sabotaging the world’s food supply. Sadly, most Americans don’t even realize they eat GMO
food at just about every meal. In particular, the soy and corn ingredients of our favorite
dishes almost always contain GMO ingredients
U.S. farmers and farmers around the world plant vast amounts of these laboratory-created
crops. In particular, soy, corn and cotton (processed food frequently has cottonseed oil
added to it) have been genetically engineered to contain toxic pesticides and to withstand
massive amounts of herbicides that are applied to farm fields. This allows GMO crops to
survive and be harvested while weeds in the fields are supposed to wither and die.
Israel's "Disproportionate" Self-Defense
Posted on July 29 - from Tea Party Nation
[Ed. note: The Israelis want peace. The only way they will obtain it is
to make waging war against them too painful to sustain.
On Sunday, July 27, Eleanor Cliff, a member of The McLaughlin Group panel, referred to
Israel’s “disproportionate” response to the thousands of rockets and missiles that Hamas
has been firing at its citizens for months, if not years.
This is a common criticism of Israel, but it is far easier to make if you are living
safely somewhere other than Israel and not being awakened by alarm sirens at 5 A.M. with
just a little time to make it to a bomb shelter.
Ms. Cliff was hardly alone. In Great Britain, the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg,
in contrast to Prime Minister David Cameron, also declared Israel’s response to Hamas as
a “disproportionate form of collective punishment” on the citizens of Gaza.

Democrats Want Votes; Republicans Want Cheap Labor
Posted on July 26 - from chuckbaldwin.live
[Ed. note: Republican leadership anyway... and we owe a greater debt of
gratitude to the good people of VA-7 than most of us understand.
The invasion of illegal aliens across our southern border is no extemporaneous event. It
is a cold, calculated, and cunning attempt to fundamentally change America. The Obama
Administration has sent a loud and clear signal to our neighbors to the south that illegals
are welcome, that they won’t be sent home, and that they will be provided either real or de
facto amnesty--especially if those illegals are minors. The result is a torrent of illegals
pouring over the border into the United States. These illegals are being housed, fed, given
medical care, and are being transported to destinations throughout the U.S. Few are being
deported. Several military installations have been essentially turned into daycare centers
and nurseries, and according to several published reports, up to 70% of U.S. Border Patrol
personnel are now being assigned to administrative duties in an attempt to process the
hundreds of thousands of illegals that have amassed at the border.
Giving amnesty to illegal aliens is a long time goal of both Democrats and Republicans
in Washington, D.C. U.S. Congressman Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich) stated it succinctly:
“Democrats want the votes, and the Republicans want the cheap labor.”
The only people opposing granting amnesty to illegals in Washington, D.C., are the Tea
Party Republicans. And had it not been for the defeat of Republican House Majority Leader
Eric Cantor (a major proponent of amnesty) by Tea Party Republicans in Virginia a few weeks
ago, there is absolutely no question that the GOP-led House and Democrat-led Senate would
have collaborated on, and passed, an amnesty bill this summer. But with the defeat of
Cantor, scores of GOP House members are extremely skittish about supporting
amnesty--especially with the fall elections just around the corner.
The secret is out: ‘Unaccompanied minors’ are only one-fourth of illegal border-crossers
Posted on July 25 - from Washington Times
[Ed. note: “Democrats haven't changed anyone's mind. They changed the
people.” - Ann Coulter
A Border Patrol report reveals that “unaccompanied minors” are only one-fourth of the
current invasion from Central America across our Southwest border. The crossings by family
units have increased almost five times faster. This contradicts White House and media
efforts to elicit public sympathy by focusing public attention on children.
Total other-than-Mexican (OTM) apprehensions were 202,951 in the Southwest Border
Sector (with three-fourths of those in the Rio Grande Valley) from Oct.1 through June 30.
Of those, 57,525 were “unaccompanied alien children.” The other 145,426 persons were among
55,420 “family units” who also crossed the border, according to the report. The document
can be viewed online here.
The Border Patrol report reveals far more explosive increase of illegal immigration by
families than by minors. The increase among minors is 106 percent great than fiscal year
2013. But among family units the increase is an incredible 493 percent.
Why Does Anyone Defend Hamas And The Palestinian Culture Of Death?
Posted on July 24 - from Tea Party Nation
[Ed. note: “Why in God’s name does anyone show sympathy, and support for
a terrorist organization?” - Former Congressman Allen West
And that is the question that should be asked. It boggles the mind and offends the
senses that there is EVEN ONE MEMBER OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION who is upset that Israel is
pummeling the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. Under Ariel Sharon, Israel
forcibly removed its citizens from Gaza and turned the land over to the Arabs. Israel has
been rewarded for that gesture of conciliation with the abduction and killing of its
citizens and the launching of hundreds of rockets into its territory.
Such provocations have finally goaded the state of Israel into launching a ground
invasion of Gaza to take on the infamous Hamas, a terrorist group famous for hiding behind
women and children even as they target the same. Death and destruction is a deserving end
to all those who purposefully target, kidnap, and murder young, innocent civilians. That’s
the tragic event that triggered this latest round of the current conflict. May all those in
Gaza who support such practices pay a very severe price for doing so.
In reality, Hamas has constructed a terror state on the border of Israel which, at its
core, seeks to fulfill the vision of Hitler and “drive the Jews into the sea.” And now,
right on cue, the Left, and the Muslims it has allowed into the West, are now marching,
protesting, and rioting outside synagogues shouting “Death to the Jews” and “Hitler was
right.” It is disgusting for any member of the supposedly civilized West to embrace the
cult of the belly-bombers and they should be roundly condemned at every opportunity. It
seems that every generation forgets the lessons of history.
A Question for Israel’s Critics
Posted on July 23 - from BarbWire
[Ed. note: As expressed more recently by a Muslim cleric in Lebanon,
“We will give the skulls of your midgets as gifts for our children’s feet to play with.”
In light of the murderous actions and intentions of Hamas, what would you like Israel
to do? I wholeheartedly concur that the death of even one unarmed civilian is tragic,
let alone the death of scores or of hundreds. And I affirm without hesitation that Arab
blood is as precious as Jewish blood.
That being said, since Hamas is sworn to Israel’s destruction, since Hamas initiated
the recent hostilities, since Hamas rejected cease fire offers, since Hamas is using
civilians, including women and children, as human shields, and since Hamas is actively
attempting to infiltrate Israel and murder, kidnap, and maim its people, what do you
suggest that Israel does?
Would you prefer that Israel simply turned the other cheek and let its people be
slaughtered? Would you rather that Israel’s Iron Dome defense system was not as
successful, so that an occasional missile landed in a heavily populated area and
wiped out some Israelis?

[Ed. note: When given half a chance, the American people come up with
solutions to all sorts of problems created by overreaching government.

the company hopes to expand throughout the Nation: low-cost, walk-in healthcare clinics

The clinics, simply called “Walmart Care Clinics,” will offer $40 walk-ins for anyone
except the company’s own employees, who — so long as they participate in the company’s

clinic at the nearby Walmart. But until this year, all of the clinics inside those stores
have been owned and operated by outside contractors who lease the space. This new experiment,
on the other hand, is all Walmart.
Detroit police chief gives credit to armed citizens for drop in crime

understands that the people have some responsibility as well.
Fed up with crime, some armed Detroiters have developed itchy trigger-fingers — and
Police Chief James Craig said lawbreakers are getting the message.
In the latest incident, police say an 88-year-old who was beaten and robbed inside his
east side home last week probably thought he was defending himself against attackers when
he opened fire Monday on a television news crew.

him of several items.
Dealing With Clichés About Judging
Posted on July 18 - from BarbWire
[Ed. note: "Judge not that you be not judged" sounds biblical... but is
Sadly much of what passes for biblical, theological and ethical reflection and talk
nowadays consists of little more than bumper sticker clichés and sloganeering. People –
even Christians – will dish out to you some tired saying or worn out cliché and think
they have added something of substance to a discussion or debate.
I have already penned numerous articles about judging, in which I try to respond to
some of the sloppy thinking and mushy moralizing about this topic. But it seems the need
to think clearly and carefully about this matter keeps arising, so the need for more
articles continues apace.
In addition to grossly abusing and misusing such texts as Matthew 7:1 (probably the most
mangled and maligned passage in all the Bible), people will offer up quite unhelpful slogans
which they think reflects the depths of the biblical understanding on this matter.
The War Against Our Natural Right Of Self-Defense Continues
Posted on July 17 - from ChuckBaldwinLive.com
[Ed. note: This is just one more way of creating dependency on those who
are dependent upon our tax dollars to exist.
Proponents of the Nanny State have been trying to take away man’s Natural right of
self-defense ever since the United Nations was created back in 1945. Of course, the
Natural right of self-defense is totally unknown in communist and socialist countries;
and big-government toadies in several so-called “democratic” countries have also succeeded
in turning citizens into subjects by removing or severely restricting the Natural right of
self-defense. Obviously, I’m talking about countries such as Great Britain, France, Germany,
New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.
By self-defense, I am talking about a man’s right to carry a Personal Defense Weapon
(PDW)--which, in modern times, mostly requires a firearm--anywhere and everywhere he goes.
A state that does not allow a man to be personally armed in his day-to-day activities is
literally stripping him of his right of self-defense. To require a citizen to keep his or
her PDW in their home or vehicle is to deny the citizen’s Natural right of self-defense.
To say a citizen may lawfully protect himself in only limited and duly-prescribed locations
is to make the citizen a subject of the state. Furthermore, it removes from him the most
fundamental of all the Natural rights that were granted to him by his Creator: the right
Four-legged predators are constantly on the prowl for animals that are defenseless.
Two-legged predators do the same thing. These human predators do not respect “gun-free”
zones. Like all predators, they are opportunistic beasts. They prey on the weak and
vulnerable. When the state takes away a person’s right to be always armed, it makes the
entire citizenry weak and vulnerable. As I have said many times, guns don’t kill people;
gun-free zones kill people.
Why Islam’s Sharia Law is the Biggest Threat to American Safety

I keep running into young people who put on a show of being happy with their lives but,

work in her desired field. The next day, I met a young man who volunteers and bartends

Millennials are the most highly educated generation in American history. We have more
diplomas and more student loan debt than our parents and grandparents did at our age. Over
a third of Millennials (a 40-year-high) are living at home with their parents as they

hear the truth about socialism so they can dig themselves out of this mess and move on
with their lives.
America, the Bullied

and refuse to be intimidated.
Perhaps it is because as a child, I witnessed Zaggy torturing chubby Butterball every

bullying Americans into submission and getting away with it.
Fear caused Butterball to endure daily humiliating facial slaps, punches and extortion of
his lunch money. Frustrated for Butterball, I asked, “Why don't you hit Zaggy back?”
Butterball replied, “He will beat me up”. My retort, “He is beating you up every day!”
One morning to the delight of us kids, Butterball, while crying his eyes out, went wild
on Zaggy. Nothing seriously violent, but Zaggy was the one crying and afraid.
My fellow Americans, we are being bullied like never before by Leftists which include
Obama and the MSM. We are being forced not only to tolerate, but embrace their liberal

The world has rightly been shocked over revelations that big name entertainers like Rolf
Harris and Jimmy Savile have been found guilty of horrible child abuse crimes. But sadly
this is really just the tip of the iceberg it seems. Not only is pedophilia an ongoing
problem, but the worst bit is how many are actually trying to justify all this.
As much as some people want to live in dreamland here, the sad reality is this: there
most certainly is a slippery slope in action here. The deniers can nay-say this all they
like, but we have proof of this slope all over the place. Everywhere we look we see various
sleazy sexualities being seriously promoted and defended.
And so much of this is due to the success of the homosexual lobby in pushing its agenda. Many others are emboldened by the wins of the homosexualists, and they too are now demanding their piece of the pie. They know quite rightly that the exact same arguments used for something like homosexual marriage can be used for things like group marriage, “intergenerational sex” and other radical sexual causes.
D’Souza’s ‘America’ Uncovers a Generation of Liberal Lies
Posted on July 9 - from B BarbWire
[Ed. note: A film worth watching to see the truth you won't find in too
One of the contributors of the American Prophet website submitted a critique of
D’Souza’s film just days before its release. Along with other reports it was the impetus
for my trip to the local theatre to see for myself what the buzz was all about. I am now
convinced that much more than a mere buzz; D’Souza’s offering is a trumpet, which every
American should see regardless of their race, political persuasion or national origin.
D’Souza has an advantage over almost any filmmaker in America today and he could not be
a more perfect choice to make this film because he is an Indian-born immigrant whose love
for this country was not biased by an education in U.S. schools where the curriculum has
been carefully and unremittingly skewed to the left for an entire generation.
The film deals with generational lies that have slowly crept into the national dialogue,
educational system and the political rhetoric of the left. The shear persistence of these
lies and the willingness to lay these prevarications before an unsuspecting generation of
our youth as ‘true history’ has fostered a kind of ‘new truth’ that after all is nothing
but syncopated, syndicated, deliberate and dangerous lies meant to lead America into a day
of self-loathing and inordinate guilt.

most conservatives find it a little insulting to talk about our "motivation" since it's
always framed in "when did you stop beating your wife" terms. If you don't beat your wife,
that's an offensive question. If you're not racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, etc.,

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve
the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the
powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of
Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that
they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments
are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
–That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right
of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its
foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall
seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate
that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;
and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer,
while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which
they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing
invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism,
it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide
new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these
Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former
Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history
of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment
of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a

Democrat Pastor Accuses Thad Cochran Campaign of Vote-For-Pay Scheme
Posted on July 2 - from Return of the Republic
[Ed. note: It should not have been done in the first place, but a man with
a conscience appears to be trying to make things right. What do we do when one party is
just as corrupt as the other?]
A black Mississippi pastor has emerged to claim Sen. Thad Cochran's (R-MS)
campaign paid “thousands” of Democrats $15 each to vote in the June 24 GOP
runoff – and that he was part of the scheme.
Rev. Stevie Fielder, an associate pastor at First Union Missionary Baptist
Church in Meridan, Mississippi, says Cochran's campaign “told me to offer blacks
$15 each and to vote for Thad.” Fielder, who was paid by freelance journalist
Charles C. Johnson for the story, provided a new outlet launched by
Johnson—GotNews.com—with four text messages from a person purporting to be Cochran
campaign staffer Saleem Baird.
The messages cite an official Cochran campaign email address—Saleem@ThadForMs.com—and
include detailed discussions of the campaign providing envelopes of money to distribute to
people who vote.
“Send me individual names and amounts along with home address to
firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll have money separated in envelopes at the office
waiting for you,” one message, sent three days before the runoff, says.
What Do You Call Scientific Theory Based On Faked Data?
Posted on July 1 - from Tea Party Nation
[Ed. note: "Faked data", in other words, a lie! Keep in mind that
they wouldn't tell us these things if they didn't want us to believe them.]
Busted, you call it busted. Any statement past that is simply asinine. But,
don't worry my fellow inhabitants of the worker's paradise formerly reserved for
the free and brave, I'm sure that the whole climate change grievance theater will
continue on, as if nothing has changed. We'll still be bombarded with shouts of,
"we have to self inflict economic hardship and damage now in order to save the
Earth," or, "anyone who denies that climate change isn't real is just like someone
who used to believe that the Earth was flat." Let's not forget my personal
favorite, "anyone who denies climate science should be imprisoned for their heresy."
That picture above? Oh, that's just what happens when you try to reconcile the
actual temperature data with the new and improved faked temperature data the NOAA
and NASA peddled to American Citizens in order to make it appear as though the
Earth's mean temperatures were indeed rising. O.K., we'll let that last bit sink
in for just one moment.
Right after the year 2000, NASA and NOAA dramatically altered US climate history,
making the past much colder and the present much warmer. The animation below shows
how NASA cooled 1934 and warmed 1998, to make 1998 the hottest year in US history
instead of 1934. This alteration turned a long term cooling trend since 1930 into
a warming trend.
Obama Vows To Handle Immigration Reform On His Own
Posted on July 1 - from Personal Liberty Digest
[Ed. note: “The president’s own executive orders have led
directly to the humanitarian crisis along the southern border, giving false hope to
children and their families that if they enter the country illegally they will be
allowed to stay.”]
President Barack Obama, reportedly giving up on the prospect of Congressional
immigration reform, announced Monday that he plans he plans to use executive
actions to deal with the tide of illegal immigrants flowing over the U.S.’s
“If Congress will not do its job, at least we can do ours,” Obama said from the
White House Rose Garden.
The President said that unilateral action was necessary, claiming that
Republican lawmakers were afraid to stand up to the Tea Party faction of the GOP
and address the immigration issue.
“While I will continue to push Republicans to drop excuses and act,” Obama
said, “Americans cannot wait forever for them to act.”
“I don’t prefer taking administrative action,” the President also said. “I’ve
made that clear multiple times … I only take executive action when we have a
serious problem, a serious issue and Congress chooses to do nothing.”
