If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. II Chronicles 7:14

September 11, 2001 - another day that shall live in infamy!

The powers that be have removed these images from the broadcast sphere as they don't want to anger Americans - and remind them of what Islam has done to our country and fellow citizens.

Propaganda is force!

Posted on September 29 - from Personal Liberty

[Ed. note: It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion. Joseph Goebbels]

Propaganda can be words and phrases that collectivize and mold the public mind so that subtle or overt force is made easier or becomes unnecessary.

Carefully chosen words by the establishment are the basis of mass mind control leading to acceptance of force. Until the people accept collectivism under some pretext, they are not docile and completely subdued.

But, Bob, you say, you have written this before. Well, a whole volume could easily be written demonstrating the twisting and distortion of words and phrases along with outright lies to manipulate the public mind. Really, few people escape this psychological warfare.

Words are created and repeated, which expands the collective psyche to accept and repeat some more. People who freely use those terms are not in control of their own thinking process.

Following are some examples of establishment words and phrases used as propaganda: Read more...

Terrorism With Apologies To Islam

Posted on September 28 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: These are the words of a Supreme Court justice displaying the bias she was hired to push on the nation.]

On Thursday, Alton Nolen committed an act of terrorism in middle America as he beheaded a woman and stabbed another at a Vaughan Foods processing plant in Moore, Oklahoma.

On Friday the mainstream media decided to report it and in typical fashion by whitewashing and outright omitting the fact that Nolen had converted to Islam and was attempting to convert others working at the plant.

As our press no longer reports on these facts its important to “watch for the spin, the denial, and the obfuscation of yet another jihad attack in the U.S.“, states counter-terrorism expert Robert Spencer.

Noting how the media initially reacts is imperative to understanding how our press develops its narrative regarding terrorism.

Spencer also notes to “watch for stories about how Oklahoma Muslims are afraid of backlash. Watch for the coming mainstream media reports about how the Vaughan Foods plant was rife with Islamaphobia. Not that this has anything to do with Islam, and of course it is not terrorism”. Read more...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Poor People Should Have Abortions, Not Children

Posted on September 26 - from LifeNews

[Ed. note: These are the words of a Supreme Court justice displaying the bias she was hired to push on the nation.]

The headline for this article may seem controversial, but that’s another way to state the pro-abortion views Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spouts in a new interview. “It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people,” Ginsburg says.

This isn’t the first time she’s sounded in favor of eugenics. Ginsburg caused a stir in July 2009 when she made comments about the Roe v. Wade abortion case that appeared racist. In an interview with the New York Times, Ginsburg said made it appear she supported Roe for population control reasons targeting minorities.

Roe is the 1973 Supreme Court decision that, along with Doe v. Bolton, allowed virtually unlimited abortions for any reason throughout pregnancy. Read more...

Local use of surveillance equipment deserves same scrutiny as militarized police

Posted on September 25 - from Personal Liberty

[Ed. note: Some appropriate handwringing from a leftist writer over a topic that should concern all of us.]

Since the police shooting of Michael Brown and the response in the streets, militarization of the police, especially with surplus military hardware like armored vehicles, has been a hot topic, both in the news and in Congress. And that’s a good thing.

But the equipment we can see on the news isn’t the only thing flowing from our military to local cops. Alongside armored vehicles and guns, local police are getting surveillance technology with help from the federal government. And while we don’t know the full contours of that aid, what we do know is worrisome and should spur further scrutiny, both locally and nationally.

The risks of militarizing the local cops are easy to see — and they’re compounded by folding local law enforcement into homeland security. Military technology, and suspicionless mass surveillance, are based on a military mindset: Everyone is a possible enemy, and no one deserves privacy. While some lawmakers justify this shift by pointing to the “war on drugs” and “the war on terror,” the United States is not technically a war zone. This raises the specter of the Posse Comitatus Act, passed in the late 1800s to prevent use of the military in domestic law enforcement. Read more...

Fiat $lavery: We have been bought and paid for…with nothing.

Posted on September 24 - from Fire Breathing Christian

[Ed. note: Most of us are familiar with the fact that the Federal reserve is not a government agency. It is a private bank granted special previleges by congress and and among its privileges is the creation of money out of thin air... some for their own use in buying government securities that they expect to be paid back with taxpayers dollars.]

You are owned.
You are someone else’s unearned possession.
You are the controlled commodity of sinful, self-serving men and women.
And so am I.
We are in the same camp together.
We are slaves to the same masters.

This is inescapably true for the most obvious of reasons; so obvious and so painful that we can barely stand to take a serious glance at the facts, much less a hard stand to address them.

The painful, obvious reality in question is this: The “money” that you and I have been conditioned and programmed to spend our very lives coveting, pursuing, and protecting, is a fictional construct crafted by others out of thin air.

We arrange our lives, spend our time, and sacrifice many responsibilities necessary to the creation and preservation of healthy relationships, families and cultures in pursuit of paper or digits on a computer that we have been propagandized into believing are of actual, objective value, when nothing could be further from the truth.

Behold The, "Moderate Muslim"

Posted on September 22 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: They young "moderate muslim" calmly answers that David Horowitz should be killed. As Earl Pitts would say "wake up America!"]

UC San Diego holds a week long festival of Jew Hatred every year, lovingly called, "Israel Apartheid Week." The Muslim Student Association, one of the groups officially listed by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Terror Funding Case and subsequent trial, and was proven in that same document to be a member constituency of the Muslim Brotherhood, hosts the event every year. The entire purpose of the event is to whip up Antisemitism amongst their fellow students, recruit students to join International Solidarity Movement or other such fine upstanding groups who will travel to Israel and help commit acts of terror against Israel or in other parts of the world. (Rachel, "speed bump," Corrie was recruited in such a fashion from Evergreen College in Olympia,Washington.) During this week, The Young Americans for Freedom will host several of its own speakers to counter the narrative. Usually, these speeches are marred by loud disruptions, attempted violence, and basically every other tactic of the left we've come to know and love over the years. Fortunately, this is not David Horowitz's first such encounter. Just like the grizzled veteran comic, Horowitz knows how to handle hecklers, and coaxes this particular one, our, "Moderate Muslim," into making a stark admission of rare truth during the ensuing Q and A. Let's give it a listen. (By the way, our, "Moderate Muslim," is sporting a mighty fine looking Keffiyeh.)

Horowitz: ...I'm a Jew. The head of Hezbollah has said that he hopes that we, (Jews,) all gather in Israel so that he doesn't have to hunt us down globally. (Are you,) For it or against it?

Moderate Muslim: For it.

The documentation of the Department of Justice showing the MSA to be a political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood goes all the way back to a meeting in the apartment of Fawaz Damra in Philadelphia way back in 1994. Damra, who has since been deported thanks to the increased authority granted by the Patriot Act to follow these, "Moderates," about the place as they set themselves to the task of political jihad. By the time of 9/11, Damra had become the Imam of a Mosque in Parma, Ohio, considered to be one of those, "Moderates," that our local FBI liked to use for their go to sensitivity trainer. According to documents filed with the court, the political jihad included CAIR, (Council on American Islamic Relations,) ISNA, (Islamic Society of North America,) and MSA, (Muslim Student Association,) among other groups.

Obamacare Rationing Czar Ezekiel Emmanuel: We Should Die at 75

Posted on September 20 - from Life News

[Ed. note: Typical of liberal progressive thinking... if they thinks something is right for them, they are willing to impose it on everyone..]

Ezekiel Emmanuel is one of the nation’s premier Obamacarians. He has the president’s ear. He is for health care rationing. And now, he wants us to die at 75.

He doesn’t put it quite like that, writing in the first person. But make no mistake: That is his essential message. From, “Why I Hope to Die at 75,” in The Atlantic:

Here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived.

It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic. Read more...

Liberated Women and Traditional Marriage

Posted on September 19 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: It’s not about their right to vote or to secure an education to achieve success in the business sector. It’s about generations of young men and women growing up in a society where a “father” is not an integral part of the “family” and the price our society pays for that.]

My generation, born in the late 1930s and the 1940s, has witnessed a dramatic change in the role and the rights of women in America. A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early September.

“If you count a generation as spanning 20 years,” wrote Terence P. Jeffery, an editor of CNSnews.com, “then approximately 36 percent of the American generation born from 1993 through 2012—which has begun turning 21 this year and will continue turning 21 through 2033—were born to unmarried mothers.”

By comparison, Jeffrey noted that “Back in 1940, only 3.8 percent of American babies were born to unmarried mothers. By 1960, it was still only 5.3 percent.” There was a time when being a single mother was regarded as a reflection of the woman’s moral values. How a society deals with issues affecting the family as its single most important factor reflects its attitudes regarding marriage. Read more...

The Real Sickness At The Heart Of American Culture’

Posted on September 18 - from Town Hall

[Ed. note: We've become so divided, so antagonistic, so morally separated that for the first time in over a century there are people asking hard questions how much we really have in common with other Americans.]

People don't like to talk about America's culture for the same reason that a man who just had a heart attack doesn't want to discuss the double bacon cheeseburger he's eating. He knows what he's doing is killing him, but it's easier not to deal with it. We’re in the same boat.

* We treat success as an accident or a cheat while defending people who make bad decisions, who won't educate themselves or who won't work.

* We've allowed pornography to become so accessible that it's practically universally viewed, even among teenagers.

* We celebrate losers and deviants by giving them their own reality shows. Meanwhile, Hollywood regularly portrays businessmen, Christians and soldiers as the worst people on earth.

* Americans across the spectrum are being encouraged to separate themselves off from the larger culture and nurse grievances that barely would have been given a thought a few decades ago. Read more...

IRS Chief: ‘Whenever We Can, We Follow The Law’

Posted on September 13 - from the Liberty Crier

[Ed. note: Is this really acceptable in an agency that can take your bank account, your home and your business without a trial? Is this acceptable in an agency with a proven record of attacking their political enemies?]

IRS commissioner John Koskinen probably meant to provide reassurance, but did no such thing yesterday in testimony yesterday. Via The Hill (hat tip: Gateway Pundit)

“Whenever we can, we follow the law,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means subcommittee on health on Wednesday.

The response was appropriate:

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), who leads the subcommittee, immediately expressed his concern with the remarks.

“I encourage you to follow the law in all instances,” Brady said. Read more...

Why Obama’s use of the term ISIL instead of ISIS is actually really important

Posted on September 13 - from the Blaze

[Ed. note: Words actually do mean things... and we can learn a lot if we listen to what people say.]

ISIL. ISIS. IS. DAISH. You have probably heard each one of those acronyms at least once over the last several months as the media and politicians attempt to determine the best way to refer to the terror group that declared a caliphate spanning Syria and Iraq.

IS simply stands for the Islamic State, while ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. ISIL is the acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which seems remarkably similar to ISIS. The differentiation between the word ‘Syria’ and the word ‘Levant’ is actually quite significant, however, given the usage of the term by President Obama and his administration.

“ISIS and ISIL. The President is making a big deal out of this is ISIL, right? The Administration wants to call it ISIL,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Stu, what’s the difference between ISIS and ISIL?” “Interesting fact about the Levant,” Stu responded. “[It] encompasses parts of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, and a place called Israel.” Read more...

Federal judge envisions 'rape license' for 'right to rape'

Posted on September 13 - from World Net Daily

[Ed. note: The secular progressive concept of utility as opposed any form of tradition and morality carries a price that that falls most heavily on the innocent.]

Judge Richard Posner, a federal judge with the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, recently become a hero to the pro-”gay marriage” left when, by way of a “legal analysis” free from the troublesome constraints of logic, case precedent, biology, tradition and reality in general, he managed to somehow divine a long-hidden constitutional “right” for two dudes to get “married.” “How can tradition be a reason for anything?” an incredulous Posner demanded last month of attorneys defending marriage protection amendments in both Wisconsin and Indiana.

It would seem that Posner’s contempt for tradition extends to all things sexual, up to and including the puritanical presupposition that it’s always wrong for a man to rape a woman. This idea, according to Posner in his 2011 book “Economic Analysis of the Law” (8th edition), is evidently an equally archaic tradition that, like the institution of natural marriage, needs a significant overhaul.

Posner’s suggestion? Perhaps it’s time the government begin issuing “rape licenses” (I kid you not) since, and based upon an exclusively utilitarian and morally relative cost-benefit analysis, the “right to rape,” for some men at least, “exceeds the victim’s physical and emotional pain.” Read more...

Who Killed Joan Rivers?

Posted on September 13 - from Chuck Baldwin Live

[Ed. note: Of course it is all conjecture at this point, but we see far too many patriots leaving us far too soon.]

Writing for Breitbart.com, John Nolte showed more perspicacity than almost anyone I’ve seen relative to the unexpected death of comedian Joan Rivers. Nolte wrote:

“With the death of Joan Rivers at 81 Thursday, we lost one more icon in a dwindling breed: the comedian who does not seek the good opinion of the powerful media and entertainment elite.

“Just two months before her death, Rivers mocked President Obama as ‘gay’ and First Lady Michelle Obama as a ‘tranny,’ and caught hell for it from the likes of the Huffington Post. Those servants to power chided: ‘Rivers took her “jokes” too far yet again this week, when she hurled a trans slur at the first lady.’”

Nolte continued: “Now Rivers is gone and outside of a handful of comedic insurgents like Don Rickles, Dennis Miller, and Adam Carolla, we're stuck with Politically Correct Palace Guards like Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Lena Dunham, Ricky Gervais, the cast of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and pretty much everyone associated with Funny or Die--all big government-loving cowards desperate to fit into a comedic class that believes political correctness is a virtue and those who buck it should be held up to ridicule.” Read more...

Mob Rule Economics

Posted on September 12 - from GOPUSA

[Ed. note: As for a "living wage," the employer is not hiring people in order to acquire dependents and become their meal ticket. He is hiring them for what they produce.]

While we talk about democracy and equal rights, we seem increasingly to let both private and government decisions be determined by mob rule. There is nothing democratic about mob rule. It means that some people's votes are to be overruled by other people's disruptions, harassments and threats.

The latest examples are the mobs in the streets in cities across the country, demanding that employers pay a minimum wage of $15 an hour, or else that the government makes them do so by law. Some of the more gullible observers think the issue is whether what some people are making now is "a living wage." This misconstrues the whole point of hiring someone to do work. Those who are being hired are paid for the value of the work they do.

If their work is really worth more than what their employer is paying them, all they have to do is quit and go work for some other employer, who will pay them what their work is really worth. If they can't find any other employer who will pay them more, then what makes them think their work is worth more? Read more...

On the eve of another 9/11: Vigilance, America

Posted on September 11 - from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

[Ed. note: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. - George Santayana]

Here we are, on the eve of another solemn anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Nearly 3,000 people died in the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, at the Pentagon in Washington and in a field in remote Somerset County, Pa. Thousands more were injured. The nation, deeply scarred.

All manner of security measures -- liberty restrictions in the name of protecting liberty -- have been in place since then. And no matter if we laud or detest them, the fact remains that the United States has not experienced a major terrorist attack since then.

Which, given the following tale, is nothing less than a miracle. Read more...

The Anti-Christian President in a Post-Christian America

Posted on September 10 - from the Truth Dispatch

[Ed. note: It's been obvious to anyone who has been paying attention... why he even had an anti-Christian pastor.]

Former Governor and Presidential candidate Mitt Romney says that President Barack Obama is out of touch on global issues. Conventional wisdom would indicate that Governor Romney is correct about President Obama’s response to the Islamic State. Claiming that President Obama is out of touch on global issues might be true, but it is a narrow view of President Obama’s foreign policy blunders.

When President Obama was first elected, he globetrotted all around the world on an apology tour to apologize to the Muslim world for America’s alleged injustices against them. Since then, and during President Obama’s presidency, persecution and mass murder of Christians at the hands of radical Muslim Jihadists has been on the rise. The latest fascist antics and attacks by the Islamic State are the most recent attacks against Christians.

How did President Obama respond to the Islamic State’s genocide of Christians? There was no real response of solidarity with the Christians from President Obama. When the genocide of Christians escalated, eventually leading to the beheading of two American journalists, the pressure has become too great to ignore. However, President Obama gives a brief pro-Christian statement, but focuses his entire responses to stand in solidarity with the so-called “moderate” Muslims. Read more...

A Swift Solution to Washington Gridlock: Abolish the Senate

Posted on September 9 - from the Federalist

[Ed. note: ... or we could just repeal the 17th Amendment.]

If political celebrity is your thing, there’s no better club to get into than the United States Senate, the equivalent of Hollywood, Harvard, and the Hall of Fame rolled into one. Sure, everyone suspects that your true sights are set on the presidency, but since for most the criticism is true, it’s easy to feign innocence and not take offense.

Every now and then, however, someone becomes a United States senator because he is truly interested in performing the constitutional duties of a senator. One such person is Tom Coburn, the retiring senator from Oklahoma, which means his suggestion last week that he’d be open to the idea of an Article V convention to take on the nation’s challenges is that much more significant.

Coburn told the congressional weekly The Hill, “I think [George] Mason was prophetic that we would devolve to where the federal government became too powerful, too big, and too unwieldy. That’s why he put Article V in.” Senator Coburn, who, according to the article, “has grown disenchanted with gridlock in Washington,” suggested that approving constitutional amendments creating term limits, mandating a balanced budget, and re-asserting legislative prerogatives would allow the federal government to function properly again.

Fear of man

Posted on September 8 - from Conservative News and Views

[Ed. note: The fear of man brings a snare… Proverbs 29:25]

All throughout history terrorists of many nationalities and many religious backgrounds have used fear to overcome those they seek to annihilate. In the 20th century the images of German concentration camps reeked with fear so palatable that it can still be felt in decades old film clips. Unfortunately, the inhumanity of man against man is nothing new. As long as man occupies this earth, you can be sure that those seeking to conquer others through persecution and terror will sometimes be victorious.

How do you answer fear?

History, which has taught us that terrorism is nothing new, has also taught us that there are three responses to terror:

1.Submit to it;
2.Run from it;
3.Stand up to it.

As reports of ISIS filled the news, so did reports of the Iraqi army fleeing in terror. These troops were trained in warfare and given the weapons to engage in it successfully. However, no one can give anyone else courage and so instead of staying and facing the enemy, the Iraqis chose to run. The irony is that many were caught by ISIS and promptly executed. In those cases, their fear contributed to the outcome they feared most – death.

How do you answer fear?

The Bible has something to say about fear. Proverbs 29:25 states:

The fear of man brings a snare…

Washington’s power players: Out of touch AND out of voters’ reach?

Posted on September 8 - from Washington Times

[Ed. note: We can't give up because things don't look good... if we do, the evil we fear has already won.]

Power players in Washington, D.C., are out of touch. That’s what disgusted Americans tell the pollsters. What makes it worse is how often they’re also out of reach of the voters.

Yet to hear them tell it, untouchables like the Environmental Protection Agency are actually our BFFs — either Best Friends Forever or Bureaucrats Forever Fining us.

Disapproval of President Obama overwhelms his approval ratings, and Congress has to battle with cockroaches to see which of them is more disliked. Gallup reports the majority of us have been dissatisfied with the direction of the country in every poll since 2004, usually by overwhelming margins such as today’s 76 percent.

Rather than being propelled by this into action, millions of Americans figure it does no good to get involved. What’s the use when Washington’s power players are out of reach by the voters, including:

• Non-elected bureaucrats
• Non-elected judges
• A president immune from voters he will never face again
• Re-election rates for Congress that hover around 90 percent

Tom DeLay: Obama paralyzed by Muslim sympathies

Posted on September 6 - from WND

[Ed. note: Obama does not want to face the reality of the danger and threat represented to the United States by ISIS, and he does not want to admit the connections between al-Qaida and ISIS, because he refuses to understand that we are in a war against radical Islamic terrorism.]

President Obama’s left-leaning political ideology combined with sympathies for Islam acquired from being raised by a Muslim stepfather paralyze him as he faces the threat posed by the Islamic jihadist group ISIS, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told WND in an interview.

“In defending America against radical Islamic terrorism, Barack Obama cannot be trusted,” DeLay said.

“Barack Obama was raised a Muslim, and he claims he is a Christian, and I can’t say for sure whether he’s a Christian or not, but he has shown over the last few years that he has great sympathies with Islam,” DeLay explained.

“You combine that with Obama’s political orientation that is far to the left,” he continued, “and you get a president who hates war, hates the military, and you have a formula for military inaction when it comes to combating radical Islamic terrorists like we are seeing in ISIS.” Read more...

The Essence of Christianity

Posted on September 5 - from Break Point

[Ed. note: If we are looking after the least among us... who is less capable than an infant in the womb.]

The apostle James wrote that the essence of Christianity—that which epitomizes “pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father”—is to care for “orphans and widows in their distress.” (James 1:27, NASB)

Babies aborted are “orphans” in the truest sense of the word, for they have been abandoned, by those entrusted to care for them, to the uttermost, even to death. The sheer number who have been led to slaughter with virtually no opposition even by churches who call themselves pro-life ought to give us pause before we conclude what we have been practicing is, in the sight of God, “pure and undefiled religion.”

As to where James came up with his definition of Christianity—divine inspiration, to be sure. But it also appears he knew his Bible:

Deuteronomy 10:18: He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing. Read more...

Pastors And Churches Violating First Commandment

Posted on September 4 - from chuckbaldwinlive.com

[Ed. note: Does the Bible really say to go along with evil, just because the government tells you to?]

Regardless of doctrine or denomination, America’s pastors and churches are noted for teaching various dos and don’ts to their congregations. Obviously, most churches, regardless of denomination, subscribe to and teach the Ten Commandments. And, depending on the church and pastor, they can even get extremely detailed and lengthy in the don’t department-- including many taboos not covered in Moses’ Decalogue. Don’t wear these clothes. Don’t listen to this music. Don’t shop at these stores. Don’t wear this hairstyle. Don’t associate with these people. Don’t miss church. Don’t fail to give your tithes and offerings. Don’t drink this beverage. Don’t abandon this program. Don’t have these attitudes, etc., etc.

And as a pastor who has been in the Gospel ministry for over 40 years, I also try to be faithful to those principles of Scripture that deal with the negative. Albeit, I hasten to say that I refuse to join the many pastors today who are as guilty as the Pharisees of old in the way they teach the traditions and doctrines of men as being synonymous with the teaching of Holy Writ--which they are NOT.

In fact, the Pharisees were the bane of Jesus’ earthy life and ministry. They were the constant thorn in his side: they rejected his authority; they harassed and harangued him; they constantly tried to incite crowds against him; they ridiculed him; they denigrated his parents; they scorned the place where he lived; they laughed at him; they led conspiracies against him; they repeatedly tried to kill him; and, finally, they crucified him. The Pharisees saw Jesus as a threat to their doctrines, their synagogues, their schools of higher learning, their politics, and, mostly, their position and authority. And he was! Read more...

The Death Of Freedom In Our Schools

Posted on September 3 - from Liberty Crier

[Ed. note: Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves. D.H. Lawrence]

No matter what your perspective on the showdown between locals and law enforcement in Ferguson, Missouri, there can be no disputing the fact that “local” police should not be looking or acting like branches of the military.

Unfortunately, in the police state that is America today, we’re going to find ourselves revisiting Ferguson over and over again. Every time an unarmed citizen gets shot by a police officer who is armed to the hilt, or inclined to shoot first and ask questions later, or so concerned about their own safety, to the exclusion of all else, that everything becomes a potential threat, we’ll find ourselves back in Ferguson territory again.

Here’s the thing, though: whether or not it ever gets reported, whether it incites any protests or marches or showdowns of epic proportions, whether it elicits any outrage on the part of the citizenry, Ferguson is already happening over and over again, all around us. Read more...

Parents: Watch For These Red Flags at School

Posted on September 2 - from BarbWire

[Ed. note: Be careful of what the young ones in your life pick up at government indoctrination centers we call public schools.]

As summer winds down, kids don their backpacks and jump on school buses once more. Yet few parents realize what’s about to descend on those innocent heads.

While your children frolicked at the lake, visited Grandma and sang songs at summer camp, the leaders of America’s education system prepared more essential “LGBT” lessons to infuse into the hearts of Chloe, Emma and James. Most will be packed with insidious, Christ-less lies that present great risk to every child’s medical, social and spiritual future.

Grassroots efforts by frustrated parents are trying to eject the leftist Common Core standards, but meanwhile, educators are being pressured to get that “gay” subject in front of as many kids as possible. Consulting the essential wisdom of the Huffington Post “Gay Voices”page, we learn that one high-school social studies teacher who just “came out” as homosexual last year is determined to weave homosexual themes into the classroom wherever possible. His method will be to assume a boy might not be heterosexual, for instance. So when chatting with a male student about dating, he will refer to his possible girlfriend or boyfriend, to make him feel more comfortable. Read more...

Labor Union Accomplishments

Posted on September 1 - from Political Christian

[Ed. note: I have seen first hand the destructive nature of labor unions. There is a reason they are losing membership among private sector workers.]

Since this is Labor Day, I thought it would be a good time to look at the roll of labor unions, not from the theoretical perspective which any honest evaluation would reveal that they function to benefit their members, when convenient, to the detriment of the rest of society, but from personal experience that, somehow, shows exactly the same thing.

As a young man I went to work in a family owned clothing manufacturing business for my new wife’s grandfather in the village of Richlandtown, PA. We made nice quality ladies blouses, a product our open trade policy has since all but destroyed our domestic production. My job included various record keeping and payroll functions along with some production supervision. Included were my periodic sessions with the union business agent as we would review the employment rolls to be certain of dues payment compliance. The business agent was a union thug, more suited for banging heads than using his. He was an amiable enough thug though and we got along reasonably well… about as well can with someone running a form of the protection racket.

The union was the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU), at one time, one of the largest unions in the country. The other union in the area was the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union. There was not a whole lot of difference between the two, but Amalgamated shops paid their workers ten cents an hour more, and that differential actually cost us some workers. It may not seem like much, like the seven and a half cents from Pajama Game, but in those days, late sixties and early seventies it was almost unheard of for a woman factory worker to make a hundred dollars in a week. After all, two thousand dollars could by you a pretty nice new car, six thousand would buy you a shiny new Cadillac. Read more...

The Screwtape Epilogue: Pastor Pens Letter Supporting Planned Parenthood Clinic

Posted on September 30 - from The Truth Dispatch

[Ed. note: Recalling a C.S. Lewis classic.]

The Rev. Walter Baer of the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation in New Orleans has penned a letter that could be an epilogue from the C.S. Lewis classic. Screwtape would be proud of this one. The words practically slither off the screen.

Rev. Baer is pleased to welcome the new Planned Parenthood clinic to his area, and wishes to extend his heartfelt support for the clinic and thank them for all the good service they will provide his community. He writes:

“I write to express my support for the right of the clinic to be there and to serve the reproductive needs of our community.” (Italics mine)

The business that kills babies for profit has a right to exist? (But those babies do not.)

In the earliest days of Christianity, the Christians set themselves apart from the rest of their culture in many ways, in particular, they refused to expose their infants. They refused to set the “unwanted” or “unplanned” infants on rocks in the desert heat to be scorched and picked apart by animals and birds of prey. But you, Rev.

Posted on September 29 - from The Truth Dispatch

[Ed. note: The creation versus naturalistic evolution debate does not hinge on the age of the Earth.]

When you think of creationism, everybody thinks of the young earth creationism. We automatically assume that the Biblical account of creation in Genesis refers to a literal 24-hour day. I am probably going to alienate some Dispatch readers, but I believe that the math of science and astronomy has proven that the age of the Earth and the Universe is billions of years old.

It proves that the “day” in Genesis was intended to mean a “long period of time.” However, the creation versus naturalistic evolution debate does not hinge on the age of the Earth. Rather, the debate is primarily over the origins of man and the existence of God.

Intelligent Design’s irreducible complexity answers the question regarding the existence of a Creator God “in the beginning,” and the specificity that is required in creation. The universe could not have been created by random chance and natural selection because of how every component of the universe has to be specifically exact. However, if science is correct and the Earth is billions of years old, then what if the science does prove that the origins of man was created over billions of years from a common ancestor to humanity (the pinnacle of creation)?

Alba Gu Bràth!

Posted on September 27 - from chuckbaldwinlive.com

[Ed. note: Alba gu bràth (pronounced al-op-pa goo bra) is a Scottish Gaelic phrase that translates to English as, “Scotland forever.”]

In the colossal movie, “Braveheart” (1995), Mel Gibson’s character, Scottish freedom-fighter, William Wallace, gave, without a doubt, the greatest war speech in movie history. The men of Scotland were facing a vastly superior number of English troops before the Battle of Stirling Bridge; and many of them had already begun retreating in fear. Here is the exchange:

William Wallace: And if this is your army, why does it go?

Veteran: We didn't come here to fight for them!

Young Soldier: Home! The English are too many!

William Wallace: Sons of Scotland! I am William Wallace.

Young Soldier: William Wallace is seven feet tall!

William Wallace: Yes, I've heard. Kills men by the hundreds. And if HE were here, he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his arse.

[Scottish army laughs]

William Wallace: I *am* William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny. You've come to fight as free men...and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?

Veteran: Fight? Against that? No! We will run. And we will live.

William Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live...at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take...OUR FREEDOM!

[Scottish army cheers]

William Wallace: Alba gu bràth!


In the real Battle of Stirling Bridge (which took place on September 11, 1297 in the First War of Scottish Independence), William Wallace and his band of 2,300 Scots went up against some 13,000 seasoned English troops, including 3,000 cavalrymen. When the battle was over, more than 5,000 English troops lay dead, and the Scots had achieved a crushing victory. Of course, England went on to defeat the Scots in subsequent battles, and William Wallace was betrayed, seized, disemboweled, and beheaded. And, sadly, Scotland never totally gained its independence. It is still a subject of the British Crown today--but maybe not tomorrow! Read more...

Death Threats Against Christian Leaders Emerge From Gay Rights Activists

Posted on September 26 - from BarbWire

[Ed. note: Some gay activists have misunderstood truth for hate. It may be by design.]

I wasn’t surprised when fellow culture warriors, like our very own Michael Brown, conservative blogger Matt Barber, Concerned Women for America’s Janice Shaw Crouse and others landed on the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) hate list.

The world’s largest gay-activist organization last week issued a report called “The Export of Hate” that called out a network of American, conservative Christian leaders “who are working tirelessly to undercut LGBT people around the world at every turn.”

People I work with day in and day out are on that list—and not a single one of them is a hate monger. Rather, they are painted as villains for being brave enough to lift up their voices for truth in a spiritual and cultural war for God’s will as it relates to marriage, family—and souls. But some of the very souls these men and women of God are contending for are launching literal death threats against them.

The HRC has targeted Scott Lively—an American author, attorney, social activist, independent candidate for governor of Massachusetts in the 2014 election, and president of Abiding Truth Ministries—for murder. Lively is target No. 1 on the HRC’s hate list. Lively says he has received two death threats since the report was published. That death-laced message also listed Barber and Liberty Law School Dean Mat Staver, among others. Read more or read the whole report...

Every sane American should fear liberals.

Posted on September 25 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views. William F. Buckley, Jr. This time they are miffed that we don't take their dubious word about global warming... however, their wrath is real.]

One of the first things everyone should understand about liberals is they will tolerate no dissent. Want to drive a liberal bat guano crazy? All you have to do is disagree with them.

Liberals don’t want to debate. They want to silence anyone who disagrees with them. The alarming part is what they want to do with anyone who disagrees with them. Liberal lunatic Robert F. Kennedy, junior is one of the worst. He is unhinged but he also says what every liberal wants to say and wants to do.

From The Washington Times:

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., one of climate change’s loudest activists, said there should be a law that lets authorities punish skeptics and deniers - those who engage in “selling out the public trust,” he said, in an interview with Climate Depot during New York City’s recent People’s Climate March.

“I wish there were a law you could punish them with,” he said, in the videotaped interview. “I don’t think there is a law that you can punish these politicians under … [and skeptical politicians are] selling out the public trust.”

From CNS News:

On May 19, 2014 PBS' "Moyers & Company" played a clip of scientist, David Suzuki, calling for politicians skeptical of man-made climate change to "be thrown in the slammer." On day later, a tweet by well-known alarmist Michael Mann suggested that skepticism could be a "crime against humanity." As least far back as 2006, and as recently as March 2014, liberal journalists and radical scientists have advocated punishing people who doubt catastrophic, man-made climate change.

On March 28, 2014, the popular website Gawker's Adam Weinstein declared "Arrest Climate-Change Deniers." Weinstein explained there was "clear precedent" to "punish the climate-change liars." He was very specific on who should be jailed, as well. Weinstein clarified that the "man on the street" is innocent but just "too stupid." Instead, he focused on "Rush and his multi-million dollar ilk" and "Americans for Prosperity." Read more or read the whole report...

Blathering Eco-Intellectuals

Posted on September 24 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: It's amazing to watch the arrogance of those with a few degrees behind their names carry on about how they can fix the wonder self sustaining earth that our Creator has given us.]

I confess I have always been wary of intellectuals. They love arcane theories that often have little to do with real life and this is particularly true of eco-intellectuals who have embraced a panoply of lies and claims about the “environment”, “fossil fuels”, “sustainability”, and other notions that permit them to bloviate without once addressing reality.

This has been a week of eco-propaganda on a global scale. On Sunday there were “Climate Marches.” On Tuesday there will be a UN “Climate Summit”, and there will likely be an avalanche of nonsense in the media intended to make us believe we have control, influence, or impact on the climate when it is obvious to the rest of us that we—the human race—have none.

In the past nearly two decades we have all be experiencing not a warning, but a cooling of planet Earth. It has nothing to do with us and everything to do with the Sun that has been in a low cycle of radiation—less heat!

We do not live in a world without risk or trade-offs. For lack of enough pipelines, a lot of oil is being transported by rail and there have been accidents. Around the world there are coal mining accidents. Even solar farms literally sizzle birds to death that fly over them and wind turbines chop them into little pieces.

CFACT report — Climate Hype Exposed

Posted on September 22 - from CFACT

[Ed. note: CFACT releases a new report on the eve of the New York UN climate summit.]

Executive Summary

Launched in 1988 at the urging of activists opposed to hydrocarbon energy, economic growth, and modern living standards, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was originally charged with assessing possible human influences on global warming and potential risks of human-induced warming. Over the subsequent decades, however, the IPCC increasingly minimized non-human factors, to the extent that it now claims only human influences matter – and any climate changes would “threaten our planet.”

The climate change scientist-government-industrialist complex has grown increasingly wealthy and powerful. It now spends billions of dollars annually on climate and weather research, focusing almost exclusively on carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse” gases, and many billions more on renewable energy research and subsidies that raise energy prices, cost jobs, and reduce living standards.

Indeed, laws and regulations implemented in the name of preventing climate change have increased the cost of virtually everything people make, grow, ship, drive, eat, and do. They affect our lives, liberties, livelihoods, living standards, health, and welfare. Expert analysts calculate that climate-related rules will cost U.S. families and businesses almost $51 billion and 224,000 U.S. jobs every year through 2030 – on top of the $1.9 trillion in regulatory costs that Americans already pay every year.

With so much at stake, it is essential that climate research is honest, accurate and credible, and that the resultant energy and climate policies are based on sound, replicable science. Instead, the studies and reports are consistently defective and even deceitful. They incorporate every study financed by this multi-billion-dollar system that supports the “dangerous manmade climate change” thesis – no matter how far-fetched and indefensible their claims might be – and ignore all contrary studies and experts. They rely on faulty, manipulated data, secretive working sessions that revise the “science” to reflect political “summaries,” and computer models that completely fail to predict actual real-world climate trends.

Big Labor Millionaires Lead ‘Income Equality’ Convention

Posted on September 19 - from Personal Liberty Digest

[Ed. note: The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants. Albert Camus]

Several of America’s wealthiest union bosses spoke at the 2014 Ohio AFL-CIO convention in Cincinnati this week. The event’s theme? “Building the movement for income equality.”

American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten portrayed herself and other AFL-CIO leaders as the voices of the working class, although AFT paid her $2,022,274 taken from union members and forced “fair share” fee payers between 2010 and 2013.

Weingarten reminded convention attendees of the need for higher taxes and more government spending to create “good jobs” in the public sector, which would also funnel more money to AFT and other public-sector unions. Read more...

Should Christians Be Politically Active?

Posted on September 18 - from Barb Wire

[Ed. note: We should not be content to treat political responsibility as though it were separate from faith. We are the light of the world. Is it proper for us, therefore, to stand silently by and watch those living in blindness steer themselves—and us and our children—into destruction?]

Last week on Facebook I was chastised by a fellow Christian for being politically active. She accused me of blasphemy, idolatry, apostasy and scripture twisting for my defense of Christians being engaged in the public battle for the soul of our nation. She is apparently one of the “pacifist” Christians who believes that we are never to speak out against the evils done by civil government, because God ordains all authority. Our conversation thread was on a press release I posted from Senator Ted Cruz announcing his proposed legislation to strip the U.S. citizenship of any American who joins ISIS.

The lady, who uses a pseudonym of “Barefoot Inhispresence,” wrote that God is sovereign. Then she cited Daniel’s proclamation (2:20-21) that He establishes kings and removes them, and she takes Jesus’ silence before Pilate to extrapolate that we should remain silent in the face of governmental injustice. I wrote to her, “Yes … the Lord is sovereign. He also calls us to expose the works of darkness.”

To which she responded:

“As they apply to the Church, not rant about the gvmt. There is nothing in scripture telling us to focus on that except to pray for those HE has set in authority. Oh, except that to grumble against them is blasphemy against Him, and He takes that very seriously. Politics are not any focus in scripture…it should not be ours either. We are here to proclaim the gospel, period. And to make certain the Church is not being tainted by leaven. Like a bunch of professors who serve the enemy by distracting believers from their one commanded duty…to proclaim the gospel. And to obey the Lord.” Read more...

The Permanently Aggrieved

Posted on September 17 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: This is about societal control, over every aspect of our lives. I used to be a pick your battles kind of guy, but not any more.]

Welcome to 2014, a year in which being aggrieved on behalf of someone else has become a multi Billion Dollar cottage industry. Buckets of cash are waiting to be raked in by liberals self appointing themselves to speak out on behalf of a group who they feel should be upset about something. The something is not all that important. In fact, the more trivial the better, since defending trivial matters is damned near impossible.

There's nothing more trivial than the logo for a professional sports franchise. It's nothing more than marketing material, and usually means not one thing to anyone outside of its own fan base. So, of course, a group of liberal lawyers decided that in their arrogant opinion, every single Native American ought to be upset, rather than mildly flattered, that a professional sports franchise would want to be identified with their people. Further, they decided, without invitation, that they would level an attack against the horror of that logo and name on behalf of the party who did not have the good sense to be sufficiently aggrieved prior to their having spoken up on their behalf. the result is beautiful, since no one really cares to come out in defense, seeing as how the name Redskins and the accompanying logo only matter to those who make up the fan base, winning a national debate becomes much easier when the debate is one sided. Truly, under normal circumstances, I couldn't care less about what a Football team from Washington D.C. calls itself. Times are changed though, and I recognize a larger picture forming here.

This is about societal control, over every aspect of our lives. I used to be a pick your battles kind of guy, but not any more. Liberals must be fought and defeated at every instance of their trying to inflict their control over us. There is not one positive thing that they've ever contributed to anything, and like any parasite, they'll eventually end up killing the host, which for the purpose of our discussion, is every productive member of our society, those who work and pay taxes.

Losing the Abortion Debate, Planned Parenthood Abandons the Term “Pro-Choice”

Posted on September 10 - from Life News

[Ed. note: When the pro-choice community frames abortion as a difficult decision . . . It is a tacit acknowledgment that terminating a pregnancy is a moral issue requiring an ethical debate.]

Pro-choice advocates are on the ropes, which is why they’re ditching their sheep’s clothing and baring their fangs. I’ll explain why.

If Roe v. Wade were overturned tomorrow, we would celebrate, right? Well, yes, but not so fast. A fringe element of the pro-choice movement has always insisted that Roe, even though it legalized abortion in the United States, didn’t go far enough. You see, in his majority opinion in the fateful 1973 Supreme Court case, Justice Harry Blackmun established a number of criteria for legal abortion, among them the so-called “viability test.”

According to Blackmun, if a fetus lacks viability outside the womb, it also lacks a component of personhood, and therefore a right to life. In the years since Roe, of course, viability has become a moving target, advancing ever earlier in pregnancy as medical technology advances. Now babies have been successfully delivered as early as 23 weeks, showing just how arbitrary the Court’s viability test is. Read more...

Agenda 21 Simplified – The Standardization of Common Core

Posted on September 10 - from Freedom

[Ed. note: Many in the academic community are more interested in inflicting their vision of heaven on earth on the rest of us than in educating our students in the pursuit of truth... wherever it may be found.]

Hanging in the hallways of Northeastern State University's Broken Arrow Oklahoma campus are signs that state the following: Developing Global Citizens for the 21st century and a Sustainable Future. It's hard to believe because Oklahoma is said to be one of the most conservative states in the union; however, the state's universities are overflowing with hard-core leftists who are attempting to change the worldview of our younger generations.

I specifically remember the very last day of my last class right before graduation. We watched a video that was essentially describing the end game goals of UN Agenda 21, and their plans to use the wealth of the United States to redistribute to third world countries. The video was complete with blaming capitalism and gun owners (of course) for all of the world's problems and it was very convincing in its argument that America owed the world a "climate debt" because of our greedy, industrial society.

I found this very interesting because this was around the same time that Common Core was beginning to appear in the education arena. The point is that Common Core, and education in general, are vehicles through which UN's Agenda 21 will secure its own future. Read more...

‘Armed Patriots’: the Private Citizens out to Secure the U.S. Border

Posted on September 10 - from Tea Party

[Ed. note: “Now, when they’re on patrol, it’s actually peaceful,” said one local resident. “The dogs don’t bark as much. I can actually get some sleep.”]

With binoculars in hand, an assault rifle slung over his chest and a Glock pistol on his hip, a man named Will scans the banks of the Rio Grande looking for anyone trying to cross from Mexico into Texas.

Will is a member of the Patriots, a group of heavily armed private citizens who use displays of force to intimidate people attempting to cross the border illegally. Since early summer the Patriots have patrolled an area near Brownsville, Texas.

“If you spot them and shine your light on them, that lets them know that you’re there,” said the 25-year-old construction worker from Indiana who flew to Texas for a stint with the Patriots. “Nine times out of 10, they’re not going to come over. Read more...

The Rocky Horror Parenting Show

Posted on September 12 - from Barb Wire

[Ed. note: It's time we remove ourselves from this ungodly organization.]

Most parenting “trends” are bad. In general, as a parent, you should strive to be as old-fashioned as possible. Even if your children subsequently rebel against your authority — as, predictably, most kids do — you need to give them an actual authority to rebel against. And then you crush the rebellion like Darth Vader wiping out Alderaan.

Trendy progressive parents nowadays are into gender neutrality. They don’t want to impose oppressive gender norms on their kids because having normal kids is wrong, or something. What trendy progressive parents want is for their kids to be hopelessly confused weirdos, so that the parents then have a “cause” to crusade for. Nothing else can explain this Huffington Post column by Erika Kleinman:

When Gender Norms Didn’t Work for My Kid

I cut my 3-year-old daughter’s hair really short. She had asked me, specifically, “Can you cut my hair like a boy? Really, really short?” At first I gave her a bob. Then a shorter bob. Then finally, when she asked yet another time, I said to myself, “Why am I avoiding this? Let’s do it.” I got out the clippers. Read more...

An Open Letter To My Friends In Law Enforcement

Posted on September 8 - from chuckbaldwinlive.com

[Ed. note: Based on official statistical data, we are eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than we are by a terrorist.]

When I was a youngster, my dad told me, “Son, a policeman is your friend.” Through his jail and prison ministry, Dad became a personal friend of our county sheriff (two of them, as a matter of fact)--as well as scores of deputies and city police officers. For all of my life, I have taken Dad’s maxim to heart. In fact, for all of my teen years, law enforcement was my chosen profession. I wanted to go into law enforcement real bad. It took a divine call to Gospel ministry to change my plans.

Throughout my adult life, I have enjoyed the friendship of many peace officers. The county sheriff where I lived in Florida made me an honorary deputy sheriff. I still have the credentials to prove it. I count scores (and maybe hundreds) of law enforcement officers around the country as friends. In fact, there are scores of peace officers across the country that financially support my work. I have had kinfolk serve in various positions of law enforcement. Anyone who knows anything about me knows I have been a law and order guy all of my life.

With the above said, it is extremely important that this letter be written, because so many honorable American traditions and customs are being radically and rapidly changed--including the philosophies, standard operating procedures, and rules of engagement of law enforcement. And the change is not for the better.

Let me just be blunt: ever since Ronald Reagan left office, both Republican and Democrat presidential administrations--along with both Republican and Democrat congresses--in Washington, D.C., are turning the United States of America into a giant Police State. And that means that our local and State police agencies are being transformed before our very eyes into the enforcement arm of this burgeoning Police State. And one of the biggest reasons for this growing threat to our liberties is that it seems that you--our local and State police officers and sheriff’s deputies--do not understand that you are the ones that are being used to create this nefarious Police State.

US Signs Agreement With Mexico Protecting Mexican Workers, Including Illegals

Posted on September 6 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: Once again, the Obama regime hurts American workers by making it easier for those who have sneaked into our country to take American jobs. Whatever happened to eVerify?]

At a signing ceremony on Friday, the U.S. government, through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Mexican government to allow Mexican Nationals – regardless of immigration status – to “exercise their workplace rights.”

The MOU is consistent with the “core mission of this commission,” Mexican Ambassador to the United States Eduardo Medina Mora Icaza said, adding “that regardless of national origin or immigration status all workers have rights and there are processes to safeguard them.

“This is what makes this country so great,” the ambassador said.

The four-page memorandum states in the “Overall Objective” section, in part, that its purpose is: “to establish a collaborative relationship to provide Mexican Nationals in the United States with information, guidance, and access to education and training resources to help them understand and exercise their workplace rights, particularly with regard to reducing violations against them under the laws and regulations that are administered and enforced by EEOC.” Read more...

Security Operators on the Ground in Benghazi Say They Were Told to ‘Stand Down’

Posted on September 5 - from the Blaze

[Ed. note: “I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today.”]

Five security operators responsible for guarding the CIA station in Benghazi, Libya insist they were told to “stand down” the night of the deadly 2012 attacks, arguing the order prevented them from likely saving the life of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others.

The claim is made in a new book titled “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.” Scheduled for release next week, it is the first public account of the deadly attacks from security personnel who were on the ground that night.

“If you guys do not get here, we are going to die!” a diplomatic security agent shouted over the radio, the commandos say in their new book, according to the New York Times.

However, according to the team, a top CIA officer in Benghazi, who they refer to as “Bob,” told them to “stand down.” Read more...

Feds Punish Business For Engaging In ‘Citizenship-Discrimination’

Posted on September 5 - from Daily Caller

[Ed. note: More proof our government is not working for the benefit of American Citizens.]

A Texas catering business will pay the United States $26,400 for engaging in “citizenship-discrimination,” as part of a settlement with the Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Culinaire International unlawfully discriminated against employees based on their citizenship status, the Justice Department claimed, because it required non-citizen employees to provide extra proof of their right to work in the United States.

Culinaire has agreed to pay the United States $20,460 in civil penalties, receive training in anti-discrimination rules of the Immigration and Nationality Act, revise its work eligibility verification process, and create a $40,000 back pay fund for “potential economic victims.”

“Employers cannot discriminate against workers by requiring them to produce more documents than necessary in the employment eligibility verification and reverification processes,” Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights division, Molly Moran, said in a statement. Read more...

Christianity in class

Posted on September 4 - from Conservative News and Views

[Ed. note: Now the atheists don't want the constitution taught because they sey it is too much of a Christian document - no wonder the want to destroy it.]

The debate on Christianity in class has reached the ultimate irony. Those who object to it, forget one thing: you cannot keep Christianity out of class and still stay historically accurate. Don’t the opponents know that? Or do they?

Christianity in American history

Yesterday, Ricki Pepin published this essay at Political Outcast. He described something that should be out of a movie, except it happened:

I was recently invited to teach a 12-week Constitution course using a room at a local public high school in Springboro, Ohio. The class was open to the public – parents, grandparents, students. A few community agitators seized this opportunity to flex their politically correct muscles by calling in the ACLU and threatening a lawsuit if we did not cancel the class.

The ACLU informed us that if we proceeded with this class we would be violating the students’ First Amendment rights.

Say what? Teaching about the Constitution would breach students’ rights under that Constitution? And why would a class in the Constitution breach students’ rights? Because it would hold too much religious content. Read more...

Fed Vice Chairman Warns: Your Bank May Seize Your Money to Recapitalize Itself

Posted on September 4 - from SHFTplan.com

[Ed. note: Bank liquidity may take precedence over individual property rights.]

At the height of the financial crisis in 2008 the U.S. government forced some of the countries largest banks to take “bailout” funds amounting to billions of dollars in order to keep them from going bankrupt. It was a move designed to not only keep too-big-to-fail financial institutions afloat, but one that would inspire confidence and keep American consumers spending. As a result, the last several years have seen stock markets reach record highs with Americans continuing to rack up personal debt for real estate, vehicles, education, and consumer goods as if the financial crisis never happened.

But the purported recovery may not be everything that government officials and influential financial leaders have made it out to be.

Recent comments delivered by Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer suggest that not only are global and domestic economies still struggling, but the U.S. government itself is preparing financial contingency plans in anticipation of another widespread economic event.

However, this time around, according to Fischer, the government won’t be bailing out financial institutions in need of cash. Instead, failing banks will turn directly to their unsecured creditors when they need money. And within this context, that means you. Read more...

How Are ISIS And Global Warming Connected?

Posted on September 3 - from Tea Party Nation

[Ed. note: Distractions can be fatal.]

As this is happening, in real time all around the globe, our President has made it a point to appear as if he hasn't a worry in the world. In fact, he gave a speech to the American Legion last week in which he told the largest organization of retired former members of the military that in his view, America has never been more capable of fighting her enemies, both foreign and domestic. As Barack Obama continues his fantasy golf trail, playing at all of the terrific courses that appear on every bucket list compiled by anyone who owns a set of clubs, the world around him, that one called reality that you and I live in, burns baby burns.

Many believe that this points to an Obama detached, but I disagree. I wish that our current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania were detached, he'd do far less damage to our nation that way. The fact is however, in that great evil versus stupid debate, the correct answer is yes. Barack Obama's great transformation of America included the destruction of our society on almost every level, and with only a little over two years left to go in his tenure as our chief executive, he's got a lot of work to do. The decimation of our military and our interests around the globe can only be achieved if our forces are demoralized, from the leadership straight down to the guys in the field.

As the budget for our fighting forces is squeezed to levels not seen since the head-in-sand days just prior to Japan's success at awakening the sleeping giant, Barack Obama has identified that real enemy against which, we should be preparing to battle. Global Warming and the Tea Party, those are the real existential threats against the United States. Conservatives singing, "God Bless America," with their hands over their hearts and a totally fabricated non existent hoax are what our military should be standing guard against, and not those peaceful Muslims practicing that more violent form of Jihad, rather than the moderate, "inner struggle," variety.

This Obama Administration Proposal Would Effectively Authorize Some Americans Seceding

Posted on September 3 - from The Daily Signal

[Ed. note: At worst, the Obama administration’s proposal is unconstitutional, and as a number of U.S. senators have told the administration, it is “at best offensive to the character of a country devoted to the advancement of all its citizens regardless of race.”]

In its latest assault on the U.S. Constitution, the Obama administration is proposing to recognize so-called “Native” Hawaiians as an Indian tribe entitled to separate and become an independent sovereign and to “reestablish” a “government-to-government relationship between the United State and the Native Hawaiian community.”

Such an unconstitutional action would amount to authorizing secession for certain residents of Hawaii.

It would also implicitly authorize government-sanctioned, discriminatory conduct against any other residents who don’t meet the explicit ancestry and blood-quantum requirements to be considered a “Native.” This would balkanize Hawaii, dividing the islands into separate racial and ethnic enclaves, and undo “the political bargain through which Hawaii secured its admission into the Union.”

At the end of June, the Department of the Interior issued an “Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” that set out the administration’s plan, with the opportunity for the public to file comments ending on August 19. No doubt to its chagrin, the administration encountered strong opposition at a series of hearings the Interior Department held in Hawaii in June and July, with one official from the state Office of Hawaiian Affairs being loudly booed when she declared her support for the plan.

In the almost 240 years of our Republic, there has never been a Department of Justice more corrupt than the current DOJ under the leadership of Eric Holder. Instead of trying to advance justice, the rule of law and the principles of the Constitution, Holder is using DOJ for just the opposite.

Union Payback

Posted on September 1 - from Political Christian

[Ed. note: Delivering dollars and votes can be very beneficia when one is looking for special advantages and access to those in power.]

On July 10, Barack “I owe these unions” Obama’s Office of Management and Budget issued a policy memorandum to all federal department and agency heads “encouraging” the use of costly project labor agreements (PLAs) that pushed unionized labor to the front of the line when hiring for federal construction projects. This memorandum was issued in coordination with Executive Order 13502 which further clarifies the union preference for projects over $25 million.

These union workers represent only about 16% of the construction labor force, yet after supplying millions of dollars to the Obama campaign and thousands of foot soldiers to execute the political ground game, they are now in the preferred position for the taxpayer financed government projects.
