One Nation Under God


The intent of the founders of this once great nation was that it was to be ‘one nation under God.’ The Christian God.

That is a fact which, in today’s culture, is ignored by most and denied by many. However it is still a fact. Today, however, there is a continuing trend in schools, colleges, universities and indeed throughout the country to ignore the words of the founders, the words of the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. By lack of proper education and deception our populace is not aware of the intent of the founders of their own country. People today are taught that religion is unnecessary and worse, religion leads to ignorance and intolerance and has no place in our nation. This is completely at odds with the founders and the documents establishing this country upon the Earth.

I will direct you to the thoughts and writings of the founders of this nation beginning with Fisher Ames. I doubt many will recognize the name but Fisher Ames was a congressman who took part in the creation of our Constitution. When our founders were drafting the Bill of Rights it was Fisher Ames who authored the First Amendment. Liberal judges have misinterpreted the First Amendment to exclude religion, Christianity in particular, from any form of government. But, what was the author’s intent? Here are Fisher Ames' own words as he was speaking about a new trend in schools which were relying more and more on non-biblical texts in the classroom:

 “...we have a dangerous trend beginning to take place in our education....We've become accustomed of late to putting little books in the hands of children containing fables with moral lessons. We are spending less time in the classroom on the Bible, which should be the principle text in our schools. The Bible states these great moral lessons better than any other man made book.”

Remember, this was written by the author of the First Amendment himself. I think it obvious the man never intended the amendment to exclude the bible from our educational curriculum. In fact nowhere in the constitution does it call for a “separation of church and state”. That came from a later, personal writing of Thomas Jefferson about concerns others had expressed about the government infringing on the freedom of religion. He was reassuring them, saying they needn’t worry because the US had established a “separation of church and state.” Never was it Jefferson’s or any other founder’s intent that the United States exclude Christianity from governing. Their intent was only that there not be established a theocracy!

Two years later Jefferson, as an official Presidential act, ordered the extension of the 1787 Act of Congress that designated areas of Federal land “for the sole use of Christian Indians and the Moravian Brethren Missionaries for the civilizing of the Indians and promoting Christianity”. That's right, the actual language that Jefferson ordered to take place was “promoting Christianity” by the Federal Government. He ordered the same governmental promotion of Christianity to the Wyandotte Indians in 1806 and even again in 1807 to the Cherokee Indians. So ask yourself logically, when Thomas Jefferson used those words “separation of Church and State” in that letter, do you really think he meant a Nativity Scene can't sit on government property or a judge can't hang a picture of the 10 Commandments on his wall?

One of the primary documents establishing the United States of America as a sovereign body is the Paris Peace treaty. Signed in 1783 and finally ending the war between the US and Great Britain and establishing the US as a sovereign nation the treaty was made in the “name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.” The preamble to this Treaty states it is based upon the “Holy and undivided Trinity.” The concept of the holy Trinity is unique to Christianity. This statement means unequivocally the United States was founded on the Christian faith.

Both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution refer to our Creator and to God. Writings by the authors and founders expound on their belief and faith in the Christian God and their desire for a Judeo-Christian nation:

Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be." John Adams, February 22, 1756

"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams (Federer, p. 10)

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible" George Washington (Federer, p.660)

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.... And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion ... Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail to the exclusion of religious principle." George Washington's Farewell Address

"Let [the Constitution] be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges, let it be written in primers, in spelling books and in almanacs, let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation." (Abraham Lincoln, "The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions", January 27, 1838)

"We have appointed a continental fast.  Millions will be upon their knees at once before their great Creator, imploring His forgiveness and blessing; His smiles on American councils and arms." John Adams

"The Christian religion is, above all the religions that ever prevailed or existed in ancient or modern times, the religion of wisdom, virtue, equity and humanity, let the Blackguard [scoundrel, rogue] Paine say what he will."  and again later to John Paine: "The people of New England, if you will allow me to use a Scripture phrase, are fast returning to their first love.  Will you excite among them the spirit of angry controversy at a time when they are hastening to amity and peace?  I am told that some of our newspapers have announced your intention to publish an additional pamphlet upon the principles of your Age of Reason.  Do you think that your pen, or the pen of any other man, can unchristianize the mass of our citizens, or have you hopes of converting a few of them to assist you in so bad a cause?" John Adams Regarding the Age of Reason

History will also afford frequent opportunities of showing the necessity of a public religion...and the excellency of the Christian religion above all others. Benjamin Franklin

"So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respectable members of society.  I have for many years made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year." John Quincy Adams

"The Bible is the sheet-anchor of our liberties." U.S. Grant

"That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests." Andrew Jackson

"In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength." Robert E. Lee

"I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man.  All the good from the Saviour of the world is communicated to us through this book." Abraham Lincoln

“We again make our solemn appeal to the God of heaven to decide between you and us.  And we pray that, in the doubtful scale of battle, we may be successful as we have justice on our side, and that the merciful Saviour of the world may forgive our oppressors." Samuel Adams "Father of the American Revolution" (to Britain)

"You do well to wish to learn our arts and ways of life, and above all, the religion of Jesus Christ.  Congress will do everything they can to assist you in this wise intention." George Washington

Even the Liberty Bell has a Bible verse engraved upon it!  "Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. LEVITICUS 25:10"

I don’t think that it can be any more clear that the founders and great men of antiquity intended for the US to be a country governed by the principles of the Judeo-Christian bible. While there is no doubt that the founders opposed the establishment of a theocracy there is also no doubt that they intended the country to include Biblical Christianity in governing and educating its people. All the efforts to remove Christianity from our government and our schools is done based on a deliberate misinterpretation of the First Amendment by an activist Supreme Court and subsequent godless men and women.

There are many people dedicated to erasing Christianity from the face of this nation. In doing so they bring upon us all the wrath of God, for He is a Holy God and will not brook trespass!

"When the land sins against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it... and will cut off man and beast from it, says the Lord God" (Ezekiel 14:13-14). 

The time has come for God to judge the United States of America. This is a country that was founded on the very Word of God, blessed by Him for that and now, upon turning our collective back on Him, we will be judged.

I pray that in the face of God’s holy judgment that His Spirit will work in the hearts and minds of the American People and bring about a spiritual revival, that this country can regain its place as the bastion of Christianity on Earth.

Holders Gotta Go


President Barack Obama granted an 11th-hour request from Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege and withhold documents related to the Fast and Furious gun probe. This is an outrage! Not unexpected, but, still, an outrage!

Here is a quote from US Deputy Attorney General James Cole:

"We regret that we have arrived at this point, after the many steps we have taken to address the committee's concerns and to accommodate the committee's legitimate oversight interests regarding Operation Fast and Furious. Although we are deeply disappointed that the committee appears intent on proceeding with a contempt vote, the department remains willing to work with the committee to reach a mutually satisfactory resolution of the outstanding issues."

This is, of course, bull. The AG’s office has done nothing but stonewall and dissimulate. None of the seven thousand documents they have provided clarify how the program failed so badly or who was accountable. In fact, many of the documents released do not even relate to the Fast and Furious program. 

What is so ironic is that the move by President Obama to withhold the key documents in this case gives the lie to every word of Cole’s statement. The AG has not co-operated with the investigation since it was leaked that senior officials in the Attorney General’s office might be involved. Congress has made every effort to avoid a final showdown with the AG yet Holder and company have lied, complained and tried to blame previous administrations. One wonders just what is in those documents that is so damning.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, who along with Congressman Darrell Issa has been spearheading inquiries into the gunrunning scandal, immediately attacked the president for this questionable move.

“The assertion of executive privilege raises monumental questions,” Grassley said. “How can the President assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement? How can the President exert executive privilege over documents he's supposedly never seen? Is something very big being hidden to go to this extreme?

What do those documents contain that is so damning the President has to hide them behind executive privilege? Do they directly implicate AG Eric Holder? Or is there more? We will not know, now that Obama has moved to protect his friend.

“The contempt citation is an important procedural mechanism in our system of checks and balances,” added Grassley. “The questions from Congress go to determining what happened in a disastrous government program for accountability and so that it's never repeated again.”

Certainly Fast and Furious was a disastrous program. A Border Patrol agent died as a result. As for the contempt issue, will it pass the full House? Even if a Contempt of Congress resolution is passed what will have been accomplished?

Time and again Congress has moved to hold various officials in contempt such as Henry Kissinger in 1975, Interior Secretary James Watt in 1982 and Attorney General Janet Reno in 1998. Each official was held in contempt by committees but compromises were reached before a contempt action ever reached a full House vote. Anne Gorsuch Burford, then-administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, was held in contempt in 1982 by the full House, but was never prosecuted. Karl Rove and Harriet Myers were held in contempt in 2008, but neither action was ever resolved.

Will this time be any different? How much longer will we, The American People, turn a blind eye to the arrogance of our government. Our Liar in Chief, Obama, continues to thumb his nose at the public despite the overwhelming rejection of his policies. When will we stand up in unison and shout, “Enough!” Eric Holders gotta go and his boss with him.

Return For Full Refund


Did you know that a committee under the Obama administration is negotiating a treaty that, when signed, would give an international CORPORATE tribunal authority to supersede the US Constitution. Of course you don’t. Why? Because it is being done in secret!

600 CORPORATE analysts have top secret access to the text. But Democrat Ron Wyden who is supposed to have oversight over such agreements has been forbidden access to the text of the agreement. He is so furious he is introducing legislation forcing the committee to provide him with text of the agreement. Republican Darrell Issa went so far as to post a leaked chapter of the secret agreement on his website.

Why the secrecy?

Because this agreement is so odious, so deceitful, so unconstitutional that those negotiating it know that if it sees the light of day it will have little hope of being successfully implemented.

This “trade” agreement has little to do with trade and everything to do with giving tyrannical powers to globalist corporations. Out of 26 chapters of comprehensive rules only 2 have anything at all to do with trade. The text gives enforceable authority to a corporate tribunal that would supersede our own constitution. The agreement is essentially a Trojan Horse disguised as a trade agreement which gives globalists control over American corporations without the protection of the US Constitution.

This agreement, branded the Trans Pacific Partnership or TPP would limit how signatory countries may regulate foreign firms operating within their boundaries, with requirements to provide them greater rights than domestic firms. The leaked text reveals a two-track legal system, with foreign firms empowered to skirt domestic courts and laws to directly sue TPP governments in foreign tribunals. There they can demand compensation for domestic financial, health, environmental, land use laws and other laws they claim undermine their new TPP privileges.

As revealed in Section B of the leaked text, these tribunals would not meet standards of transparency, consistency or due process common to TPP countries’ domestic legal systems or provide fair, independent or balanced venues for resolving disputes between sovereign nations and private investors. For instance, in a manner that would be unethical for judges, the tribunals would be staffed by private sector lawyers that rotate between acting as “judges” and as advocates for the investors suing the governments.

Indeed, the leaked text shows that TPP would expand on the extreme investor privileges found in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and subsequent NAFTA-style deals. These investor privileges have come under attack for threatening public health, the environment, democratic policymaking, and for favoring foreign firms over domestic firms and are opposed by both the left and the right.

The secrecy surrounding these proceedings and the continued dissimilation over the leaked text indicates that the Obama administration is intent on pushing through this agreement which subverts our National Sovereignty for the interests of the globalists. This is handing George Soros and his ilk exactly what they want and proves that Obama is bought and paid for. So much for is vaunted transparency. Since he was elected his has been the most paranoid and secretive presidency since Nixon.

It is an outrage that an agreement such as this is even being considered much less endorsed by our President. It shows that the American People must be on their guard now more than ever for it is evident that Mr. Obama values global interests over domestic sovereignty. Obama, groomed, purchased and packaged by the globalists. I just hope that America, now that they see what is in the package, return it for a full refund!

The Truth Hurts!


Remember when President Bush implemented his tax cuts? Do you remember the fit Liberal Democrats had about how they only benefited the rich, would have no positive effect on the economy, would result in government shortfalls and on and on…?

Isn’t it amazing how, now, on the precipice of another crippling recession, even Liberal Democrats are being compelled to acknowledge the importance of the tax cuts to our economic wellbeing? President Bill Clinton stepped forward recently, publicly telling President Obama that he needed to extend the Bush Tax Cuts. Both John Yarmuth (D-Ky) and Gerry Connolly (D-Va) support extending the tax cuts for two more years. Both admit that the tax cuts are helping the economy as do many of their fellow Democrats.

It certainly gives the lie to the story of how the cuts only benefit the rich and have no positive effect on our economy. It amuses me how the story has changed now that our economy has stagnated. Liberals no longer have the luxury of using class envy to manipulate their constituency. Now there is a tangible, quantifiable consequence to the outcome of this untruth. Forced with supporting a politically incorrect idea, tax cuts, or the very real possibility of watching the economy tip over the edge Liberal Democrats are being obliged to admit what they have always known was true but lied about in order to influence public opinion. The Tax Cuts stimulate growth and in this case they offset economic recession.

The Truth Hurts! Particularly when you are taken to the edge of a cliff and forced to reveal that you have been lying all along. The lie: The Bush Tax Cuts only benefit the rich. The Truth: The Bush Tax Cuts largely benefit small business owners, the producers, the employers, the tax payers, the very foundation of our economy!

Remember this next time you hear a Liberal Democrat blathering on about tax breaks for the rich. Ask yourself why, if Tax Cuts only benefit the ‘rich’, they are so crucial to our economic stability.

Told You So...

First it was large, sugary soft drinks. Now, the New York City diet police want to take away moviegoers’ jumbo tubs of popcorn as well.

New York City’s Board of Health plans to hold a public hearing on July 24 on Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposal to ban sales of 16-ounce soft drinks in restaurants, movie theaters, and sports arenas. Bloomberg says getting rid of the supersized, high-calorie beverages will help stem the obesity epidemic.
At a meeting Tuesday night, Board of Health members — who are all appointed by the mayor — expressed support for Bloomberg’s plan, and suggested broadening it to include other fattening snacks.
One member, Dr. Bruce Vladeck, said it would be a good idea to limit the sizes of buttery popcorn sold in movie theaters. 
“Popcorn isn’t a whole lot better from the nutritional point of view than soda is, and may have even more calories,” Vladeck said.
Milk-based drinks are also coming under scrutiny.
“There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories,” said board member Dr. Joel Forman. “I’m not so sure what the rationale is not to include those.”*

Syria, Iran and the Future

Iran and Damascus... The bible prophecies in Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 that in the last days Damascus will be destroyed. Iran is continuing it’s nuclear enrichment program while contemptuously thumbing it’s nose at the rest of the world. The West is so fearful of a confrontation between Israel and Iran that they result to fabricating statements from Iran in order to try to stave off action by Israel. At the same time the Assad regime in Syria is butchering it’s own citizens causing the world to call for military action to remove Assad and his cronies from power.

Conflict between Israel and much of the Middle East is inevitable. The bible clearly indicates in Ezekiel 38 that Iran, Turkey and Russia will unite and attack Israel. This attack will be stopped and the armies of the attackers destroyed in a way that will leave no doubt in the eyes of the world that Israel is protected by God Himself. It will be God’s way, in these last days, of declaring to the world that Israel is His chosen people and that He does not sleep!

In the light of this it is interesting to consider the prophecies in Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 that discuss the fall of Damascus. With the recent atrocities by the Assad regime, including the massacre of civilians and the use of children as human shields, combined with the growing anger of the West it appears conflict there is unavoidable.

Iran and it’s nuclear plants has been the most likely candidate for conflict in the region. Iran and Russia are allied economically and militarily. Russia is also similarly allied with Syria. Now, with Israel leading the offensive against the Assad regime and his (Assad’s) lack of concern for his own people much less for what the world thinks one wonders if Syria might be spark that ignites the Ezekiel 38 conflict.

It is not for us to know until it happens. Nevertheless, we are called to be watchful redeeming the time (Ephesians 5, 16). Whatever the case, Iran, Syria or some other unforeseen conflict, we know that the world has never before been in a state where all of the regions and countries were positioned to exactly fulfill prophecy. Since 1948 when Israel once again became the Jewish homeland the world has been poised for the onset of the Tribulation. Now, with air travel, satellites, global communications, nuclear weapons, RFID, and the political and military alignment of the countries of the world, all the pieces are in place.

More than ever we must be on guard, going about God’s business for indeed the time is short. Soon, the Rapture and then the world will know what we know already. That indeed, God does not sleep!

Need I Say More...

"In the eighteen months since the Operation Fast & Furious investigation began, Brian Williams and NBC Nightly News have never mentioned the Department of Justice's gunwalking controversy. Every single time Mr. Holder has testified or a major development happened, NBC Nightly News ignored it. Tonight, in their first mention of the scandal--ever--NBC Nightly News and Brian Williams distorted Attorney General Eric Holder’s testimony." MARY CHASTAIN 

I really don't think I can add anything to this. The story speaks for itself. And, it illustrates why NBC and the rest of the MSM have such dismal ratings. Hey! MSM! America has caught on! If you made some attempt at objectivity instead of acting as the apologist/propaganda voice for the DNC you might actually pick up some viewers. Hey NBC, how 'bout this. Flip and change your format to a conservative network. You can eat up some of FOX's share. Of course your liberal, left wing, neo-socialist correspondents will probably jump ship. GREAT! Its the best thing that could happen to you... (Guess I did have something to say after all....)

The Right To Keep & Bare Sodas - Redux


In a poll done by The Hill Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to back New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s soda ban. As silly as this issue might seem it gets right to the heart of the ‘Nanny State’ problem this country is currently facing.

It is abominable how many people support this kind of legislation. These same people (mostly Liberal Democrats) support Government intrusion into the private affairs of  private citizens ‘for their own good.’

The same poll included a broader survey regarding the Government’s roll in the regulation of foods and beverages for the reason of dietary health. Thirty Seven percent said the Government should do more to regulate the foods and beverages available to individuals. This baffles me. There is no justification strong enough to justify the Government intruding into the lives of private citizens to decide what they can eat and drink. There is no public cost high enough and no health reason compelling enough to discard the essential freedoms of choice, privacy and the God given pursuit of happiness guaranteed in our Constitution.

Legislation such as this always have some reasonable sounding basis behind it. On the surface they appear to either save money by reducing health related insurance costs or they save people from the consequences of their actions or both. But once that domino has fallen what comes next. Seat belt laws intruded into the private automobile for seemingly sound reasons. Helmet laws (in many states), the same. Now you can’t talk on your cell phone. Next, they have their eyes on our diet. You see how each domino falls opening the way for the next. There has to be a point where we say, “Enough!” Or before we know it the Government will be telling us what we can and cannot do and when we can and cannot do it – more so than it does already.

As I have said before, this may seem a silly issue to put such weight on but it is, in my mind and the mind of freedom lovers everywhere, an essential domino in the path to our freedoms becoming privileges. Freedom is God given and guaranteed by our Constitution. Privileges can be taken away. First it was seat belts and helmets then cell phones. Now it is food and beverages. What is next?

Benjamin Franklin said, “Those who give up essential liberties to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Those who are willing to give away essential liberties such as the right to choose what and how much one will eat or drink simply to save a few bucks or because they find fat people offensive do not deserve the liberty they have in this country!

THE PROGRESSIVE PROBLEM


Progressive. Just the prefix, ‘Pro’ tends to convey a positive association to this term which has become a more politically correct substitute for titles such as ‘liberal’ or ‘socialist’. When someone claims to be a progressive the response is often different from what they might expect if they claimed to be a Liberal, a Socialist or (if they have the courage), a Marxist or Communist. The truth is that the only difference is the name. I know I am stating the obvious and I would not even waste the time with this article if it had not come to my attention that a large number of political and media figures have abandoned the title of liberal for the more “acceptable” progressive.
So, what is the progressive problem. And, perhaps more importantly, where are they progressing to?
For the definition of a political progressive I take the following from Merriam-Webster online:
progressive
 noun
 1
 a : one that is progressive b : one believing in moderate political change and especially social improvement by governmental action     -emphasis added
I added the emphasis on the word moderate because, while that is the 'historic definition', the politics and ideology of the persons claiming the title certainly are NOT moderate. In the past progressivism was rooted in the middle class, unlike the earlier populist movement of struggling farmers and workers. Perhaps as a result of their class status, their usually high level of education, and their resulting influence, progressives were also more successful at getting their reforms passed into law, even if some of those reforms failed to accomplish all that the progressives hoped they would.  Because of the whitewashed history of the movement liberal socialists are usurping the title of Progressive as a more ‘politically correct’ alternative. Not only is this gutless but it is disingenuous and it plays on the poor knowledge Americans have of their own history.
Progressives past and present have always pursued the same thing. They desire the socialist/Marxist type of centralized government and society that is antithetical to our Constitutional Republican Democracy. Whatever the vision or rhetoric of the progressive era, its practice was a never-ending expansion of the arbitrary powers of the federal government. The truth about Progressivism is that the movement embraced Imperialism, at home and abroad, they were the authors of Prohibition, the Palmer Raids, eugenics, loyalty oaths, wealth re-distribution, price fixing and the removal of God from all forms of Government.
President Woodrow Wilson and his administration are held up as the 'gold standard' for progressivism. During the Wilson administration the US government dramatically expanded  in size while the constitution was regarded as outdated and unnecessary. In fact, President Wilson so restricted free speech during his time in office that it resulted in a landmark Supreme Court decision restoring the first amendment. As is so typical with liberals, with one hand they hold themselves up as the light keepers for freedom while silencing the voices of  opposition with the other.
The true fascists are those liberals who are so certain of the mandate to control others for their own good that they forget to question whether or not what they are doing is anything other than making themselves feel good. Modern day Progressives are just a liberal/socialist package with a different label.
For a hard hitting fact based look at what Progressivism means check this out.

The Web is Tearing



I just love the way our Moron in Chief is continually being caught in the web of lies he constructed prior to being elected President. See this if you care to. Over and over again this idiot is being skewered publicly as a result of his own incompetence.

Now, I take great shame in calling our President names. Never have I stooped to such language regarding the highest and most revered position of this land. But President Obama is so inept, so ridiculously unqualified for the office and so completely hopeless that I have to remind myself that incompetent or not he was connected enough and clever enough to be elected President or I might find myself feeling sorry for him.

With that in mind, part of the blame for the election of a man so unsuited to be President of this country lies with our press. Big Media were so enamored with Barack Obama that they fell on their faces when it came time to properly vet him. Now, far too late and damage done, the alternative news sources on the internet are finally doing what should have been done years ago by the MM.

What they are finding is so disturbing that I find myself fearing for the stability of our country. That sounds overly dramatic but I wonder just how far this man is willing to go to remain in office. What about the leftwing fanatics and anarchists, in the occupy movement? What will they do when their messiah is removed from office?

The way Obama concocted the various personas he represented to the different groups he used to make his way to public office, his autobiography and his book, the various groups he belonged to and later disavowed (Jeremiah Wright etal.) and his numerous broken promises (transparency etal.) all stand to accuse him before the American People.

Accused along with Mr. Obama are Big Media. Will they finally cave in to the overwhelming evidence or will they continue feeding the public the same Propaganda Hash they’ve been dishing since 2008? The American Public are onto Big Media. If Obama accomplishes nothing else maybe that will be the one bright spot on his record.

What Awaits Us?


There is hope, great hope, that principles and common sense will prevail in the elections this November. More and more indications are that the American people overwhelmingly reject the neo-socialist agenda of the present administration and their running dogs in Big Media.

But after that what awaits us? Is our future really any different with Mit Romney in office versus Barack Obama?

I’m not so sure.

Don’t misunderstand. I do not in any way, shape or form want Barack Obama as President of the local PTA much less of this country! Nevertheless, I can’t help but wonder if the die has not already been cast. Can anyone save us from the landslide that President Obama has brought down upon our heads. Say what you will about George W. Bush, but Mr. Obama took us to depths of economic debauchery beyond anything any previous administration ever dreamed of.

I suppose we should thank Mr. Obama for one thing. That is proving the fallacy of the neo-socialist idea that you can spend your way to prosperity. Printing worthless dollars and throwing them indiscreetly about is now thoroughly debunked as a way to survive a recession and years of economic malfeasance. But as I said, what awaits us?

Spain and Greece hover out in the Global ether waiting to drop on the heads of the EU. Japan’s economy totters like a drunken man and the giant, China, appears to be less solvent than once thought as they are over-leveraged paying for too much infrastructure too soon. War between Israel and Iran looms ever larger, appearing to be all but inevitable in the face of new information regarding its new, and hidden, nuclear enrichment plant. New diseases are on the rise. Insect plagues and animal die-offs in India and South America are in the news. Earthquakes and volcanoes are popping off in unheard of numbers.

The bible describes the end times thusly:

Mat 24:6-8  And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled, for all these things must occur; but the end is not yet.
  For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in different places.
  All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Such things have certainly occurred throughout history. In fact, this is a common argument for those convinced, or perhaps seeking TO convince themselves, that we are not at the end of the road for the world as we know it. The bible even addresses this very issue (2 Peter 3:4). One thing experts do agree on is that the frequency and severity of the disasters which have occurred recently are more than at any time in recorded history.

A gloomy outlook certainly. But, there is hope. Even better, there is victory, joy and eternal fellowship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For we are not appointed to wrath.

1Th_5:9  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Rather, with a shout of ‘Come up here!’ we will be snatched up into Heaven to be with our beloved savior, Jesus Christ!

Luk 17:34  I tell you, in that night there shall be two in one bed, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
Luk 17:35  Two shall be grinding together, one will be taken, and the other left.
Luk 17:36  Two shall be in the field, one will be taken, and the other left.
Luk 17:37  And they answered and said to Him, Where, Lord? And He said to them, Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.


1Co 15:51  Behold, I speak a mystery to you; we shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed;
1Co 15:52  in a moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet. For a trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed.
1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1Co 15:54  But when this corruptible shall put on incorruption, and when this mortal shall put on immortality, then will take place the word that is written, "Death is swallowed up in victory.

1Th 4:13  But I would not have you ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, that you be not grieved, even as others who have no hope.
1Th 4:14  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will also bring with Him all those who have fallen asleep through Jesus.
1Th 4:15  For we say this to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall not go before those who are asleep.
1Th 4:16  For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first.
1Th 4:17  Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lord.
1Th 4:18  Therefore comfort one another with these words.

I believe that we are in the very last days of the last days of God’s church on this Earth. If you have not received Jesus Christ as your savior there is still time. If you believe this:

1 Cor 15:3-4, "… that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."

And this:

John 14:6, "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me.'

Acts 4:12, "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved."


And you do this:

Rom 10:9  If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Then you will be saved from this:

Devil
    1. Hebrews 2:14, "Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil."
Enemies
    1. Luke 1:70-71, "As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from of old— 71 Salvation from our enemies, And from the hand of all who hate us."
Eternal Death
    1. John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."
Present Evil Age
    1. Galatians 1:4, "who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us out of this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father."
Sin
    1. Matthew 1:21, "And she will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins."
Wrath
    1. Romans 5:9, "Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him."
    2. 1 Thessalonians 1:10, "and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath to come."*

If you have read this far then it is apparent that God’s Spirit is speaking to you. If you are not sure yet what you believe then please message me and I will be happy to answer any questions you have. The time is short and what lies ahead is fearful indeed as is the idea of eternal separation from our Creator and eternal punishment in the most horrifying of places! Don’t let another moment slip by without giving your life to Jesus Christ.

God Bless You All.

Anarchy America


In my article titled, ‘History Over & Over Again’ I discuss the part Anarchists played in the futures of Germany, Spain and Italy in the period immediately prior to WWII. As, perhaps, a prelude to our own future see this video from Breitbart:


More and more the Anarchy movement in the US is growing in strength. Making up a growing portion of the Occupy movement they are lawless and violent. As the Conservative MAJORITY in this country asserts itself be prepared to hear more from these Anarchists and their anti-American friends!

Scott Walker Wins!



Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker won today in the battle to recall him. He is the first US Governor to survive a recall. This is a repudiation of the leftist, socialist union PACs and their sycophants in the media in Wisconsin and indeed the US. This spells trouble for Obama in the coming Presidential Election.

This is further evidence for the overwhelming dissatisfaction with the present socialist approach to governing that is personified by President Obama and his administration. By some aberration the American People were deceived into selecting a neo-socialist radical as the leader of this great country. The past years have shown them what a mistake they made. Not only that but they also see, perhaps more clearly than ever before, how biased and deceitful Big Media are.

There is a growing awareness in this country of how the neo-socialists/Marxists work. More and more the people are ‘on to’ the Big Media and Hollywood. Alternative news sources and talk radio reach millions of people who know they are being lied to by Big Media. The sheer number of people turning to Conservative news alternatives and the tremendous success of Conservative talk radio testify to the truth in this. The momentum is here. The ball is rolling. With any luck it will roll right over Obama and crash into Congress!

Stand Up!


It is time for conservatives to stand up for themselves. For far too many years the minority, liberal/leftwing media has managed to suppress the voice of the Conservative majority in this country. It is a fact surveys indicate that 60 percent of this country view themselves as Conservative. This is supported by the decline in viewership experienced by liberal news networks like CNN and MSNBC and the drop in readership of The New York Times and USA Today not to mention the rocketing popularity of alternative news sites and blogs.

Its true that if you were to watch those liberal networks or read those liberal newspapers you would be under the impression that the entire nation was full of left-leaning neo-socialists and that you were one of a very few backward dinosaurs left over from a previous age. However, you must resist this impression, this illusion, and embrace your place in the majority. The Conservative majority.

Conservatives, contrary to how we are portrayed by the liberal Hollywood Film Industry and News Media, are basically nice people. For the most part we are peaceful and non-confrontational. This flies in the face of the media portrayal of conservatives as rabid, slavering hate-mongers toting shotguns and “looking to kill them some queers.” This couldn’t be farther from the truth and you and I know this is true.

It is time for conservatives to not be so nice! We need to stand up and make ourselves heard! For much too long have we taken it on the chin just to refute the very portrayl of conservatives I described above. In doing so we have done nothing less than to give the impression that the liberal media are right. By seeking to avoid confrontation, we fell right into their hands! We can still be polite, in fact it is very important that we remain civil. But we can be passive no more!

It is time for conservatives to speak the truth fearlessly without concern for the reaction of the media. We need to put our trust in the fact that we, Conservatives, truly are the majority and if we speak the truth openly and unabashedly America will support us. No longer can conservatives afford to be ‘the nice guy’ during interviews. When the opposition lies, obfuscates or talks over us then we need to be ready to interject aggressively.

No matter how unpopular we may be in the media or how unjustly we are portrayed we must trust the American People to see through the lies and propaganda. Ronald Reagan and Both Bush administrations tried to appease the media and the liberals in Congress. They were betrayed. Ronald Reagan was the only one to appeal directly to the American People. In doing so he prevailed over the left wing demagogues in Congress and left the media looking like fools!

It is time for Conservatives to trust the American People. They are smart, contrary to the way the elitist liberal media makes it appear. The smartest thing Conservatives can do at this point is to speak the truth no matter how unpopular it is with the media and trust the American People to see through the lies and propaganda.

Its Gotta End Sometime


The number of credible financial analysts, those with track records of accuracy and integrity, predicting a near future global economic collapse is growing exponentially. The outlook for late 2012 into 2013 is bleak indeed if these experts are to be believed. I, for one, find most of their predictions credible. In my recent article, ‘And So It Goes’ I wrote about the devaluation of the dollar and the likely crash of the global economy. Today, I add to that gloomy outlook with a summary of indications I, from my layman’s perspective, feel indicate an inevitable and almost immediate catastrophic meltdown. Consider the following:

Most of the G20 countries are experiencing deep economic recession simultaneously.

For the first time since the 1930’s we are facing a recession before Production, Orders for Durable Goods, Employment or Private Sector GDP have attained their previous highs. This is true for most of the G20.

For the G7, this will be the lowest cyclical peak in GDP growth in history.

This is no foundation on which to face a recession! And, it all comes down to DEBT.

The ten largest debtor nations have debts totaling over 300% of WORLD GDP.

Understand this: Without radical changes in economic policy and spending default is INEVITABLE! As soon as one country defaults on it’s debt that will begin a domino effect of default that will result in a global financial meltdown.

Recently, Greece came very near defaulting on its debt. Only a tremendous effort by Germany and other EU countries was a major default prevented. For now. The EU is still sliding unimpeded towards economic disaster. Without significant increases in taxes and cuts in services the 'Greece crisis' will be revisited in a matter of months. Other EU countries such as Spain and Italy are equally bad off. Japan is on the verge of economic collapse. And what about China? Most people are unaware that China bet the farm on its economic growth. By financing its enormous construction with bonds tied to property value China put its economic stability at the mercy of the global economy. Since then property transactions fell 39% year on year. Chinese economic growth has stalled with the rest of the world.

With the global economy in freefall there is no more room for gigantic bailouts. The first major bank closure will be all it takes to start the dominos falling.

That’s not all. Compounding the problem is the fact that $70 trillion in G10 debt is the collateral for $700 trillion in derivatives. That equates to 1200% of global GDP!

The system is so close to meltdown. A single EU crisis will be all it takes to throw the UK into crisis as well. Analysts agree that when that happens Japan, China and The United States will follow in short order. Probably in a matter of months.

That will spell the end of the reserve banking system and fiat money. A global financial collapse and defaults of that magnitude would bring a collapse unlike any the world has ever seen. There would be no more trade finance, no leasing, no bond market, no shipping finance, no finance for farmers. No manner of Quantitative Easing will offset what is coming. Once Spain and Italy go we will see nationalization of banking and all bank debt on government balance sheets. Total meltdown.

This seems impossible I know, nevertheless a number of analysts such as Raoul Pal, Co-Manager of GLG Global Macro Fund and Goldman Sachs alumnus, think that this scenario is all but inevitable. The number of voices crying out in warning about the dire economic storm on our horizon is growing daily. If leaders don’t listen and the populace continues burying its head in the sand there will be no way to change course. In fact, even now it may be too late.

Like the man said, “Its gotta end sometime.”


The Father of Lies


I know mine is not the only voice that screams to the heavens in frustration at the absolute brazenness of our media in their so obvious allegiance to emperor, Barak/Barry Obama. I am amazed at the complete lack of any effort at all to even appear the least bit objective in their coverage this election cycle. You might say, “why are you amazed, this has been going on for a long time?”. And, yes, it has. But in the past most networks, with the exception of sycophants like MSNBC and their ilk, made some effort at least to give some small appearance of impartiality.

Now however, they are so desperate and afraid that the voters (whom they view as too stupid to know better) will throw their anointed messiah out this November. Therefore they have given up on trying to maintain the facade of objectivity in order to devote every broadcast second to propagandizing for their dictator in chief and lambasting those who criticize him.

It doesn’t matter where you stand on many of the issues regarding our President. The fact is there are issues out there that demand the scrutiny of the press. Whether you think the President was born in this country or not, or whether or not he was an Indonesian citizen or what you think he was doing in Pakistan and Russia does not matter. THE FACT IS that there is ENOUGH hard evidence of questionable actions on the part of the man who now sits in the White House to warrant the media’s full attention in vetting these issues and others.

It is significant that the mainstream media, including FOX, has not devoted a second to the Barry Soetoro/Indonesia issue.  Searches of the FOXNEWS website on the keywords Barry Soetoro yielded everything from articles on Marion Barry to the death of Robin Gibbs of the Bee Gees. But not until page three did I run across an article regarding the President. It was written by AP reporter Nedra Pickler. In her article she refers to the Indonesia matter as “an argument popular on the Internet and taken seriously practically nowhere else”. And this is on FOX!

We don’t know if the President truly was a citizen of Indonesia. In his own book he writes of his time there and the school he attended, a school that only Indonesian citizens can attend. We don’t know how much of his accepted past is factual and how much is simply concocted for his media persona. We don’t know where the truth lies in regards to various, seemingly substantiated, allegations about his past. We don’t know because these issues have not been fully addressed publicly (other than the on internet of course) and consequently they are given the appearance of illegitimacy. The only way the public can know for certain is if the media did it’s job, it’s moral obligation, and publicly and objectively vetted this President about whose past we still know so very little.

The Bible refers to Satan as the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in the children of disobedience, Ephesians 2:2 and the father of lies, John 8:44. It is certain that Satan works through the airwaves to spread lies, immorality, filth and to belittle God and those who love HIM. As believers we often marvel at how intelligent and honest people can ignore all the evidence supporting the Bible and put their faith in the strangest of places. We also shake our heads at how obtuse these same people can be when confronted with the truth about Barry/Barak Obama. It is almost as if they were under some sort of strong delusion. Food for thought for we know that with the Anti-Christ will come a strong delusion so that those who have rejected Jesus Christ will believe a lie. (No, I am not implying Obama is the Anti-Christ… Yet.)

We do know for certain that those who reject the Lord work very hard at convincing themselves and anyone else they can that God does not exist. Or, that the Bible is full of inconsistencies and lies etc. They work equally hard at convincing themselves that Barry/Barak Obama is all that they believe him to be and that anyone thinking otherwise is a fool or worse, evil. The outright fascism that is evidenced anytime someone comes out against Obama is frightening. See this article at Breitbart: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/05/21/MSM-Says-Private-Citizens-Are-Fair-Game-Lets-Start-With-Them That kind of fascist intimidation and harassment has no place in The United States and can only come from the sycophantic disciples of a Media Whore President who desire nothing more than the obliteration of this Republican Democracy for the Peoples Socialist Utopia Dreamland where only THEY decide what is good for us and we, who are too ignorant and hopeless to help ourselves, silently watch as our freedom disappears down a deep dark well.

Until things change, the internet is the only source for news and information that is contrary to the party line. This November will speak to the power of the internet as a source for those who want to know the truth. If Obama is re-elected I wonder how long it will be before the Internet (and other non-party line media such as talk radio) has a leash put on it. The polls indicate most people still rely on ‘Big Media’ for their news however more and more they indicate a migration to the internet particularly among young boomers and among the twenty somethings.

 The reality is at this time however, that the ‘Big Media’ still have the floor in the arena of public opinion. Until they do the job they are morally obligated to do in this bastion of freedom and democracy ‘truth’ will lay in the hands of the father of lies. And, for now, the media are in bed with him.

- Fear not good people! We know we live in perilous times and all indications are that things will get worse. But, we also know that if that is true, then it is because it is meant to be so. In this exists great hope for all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. For in HIM we escape the judgment that is to come   (Rev 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.")   and we will spend eternity in joy and peace with our wonderful savior Jesus Christ. Until then, when faced with the afflictions of this dark age remember the following verses and take hope:

James 1:2-4, "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

James 5:11, "Behold, we count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful."

1 Pet. 4:14 16, "If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you...but if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not feel ashamed, but in that name let him glorify God."

Matthew 24:9, "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name."

John 16:33, "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."

Acts 14:22, "strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, ”Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God."

1 Pet. 4:13, "but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing; so that also at the revelation of His glory, you may rejoice with exultation."

God bless you all and may the grace and peace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ be upon you.

Feels Good Doesn’t It?


There is nothing better than feeling like you are part of something. When you have that warm glow from knowing the people around you approve of you. You receive that positive self-affirming feedback from those around you. All is right with the world. Feels good doesn’t it?

It does. That is why the human is a social animal. We are wired to desire the company and companionship of others. Understandably, we also desire the approval of others.  It is simply human nature to want to be part of the current popular trend or movement, the Popular Culture. Call it herd mentality if you will. Popular Culture is a mirror into this mentality. Popular Culture is also a catalyst for cultural change. Its a bit of a contradiction but it is true nevertheless.

Pop culture not only mirrors what is popular in our society, but, in doing so, it is also a mechanism for change. By reflecting certain trends, the popularity of said trends becomes magnified in the eyes of society. Then, by virtue of this perceived popularity the trend becomes, well… more popular. It feels good to be popular.

One of the reasons God gave the gift of His word to us (the Bible) is so that, through the ages, mankind would have a moral baseline. We would know what is right and what is wrong. Incontrovertibly. No matter what might be acceptable to the current culture we always know where God stands! What is disturbing is when Christians succumb to the desire to be “popular” and adopt the values of the Popular Culture, forsaking Gods word. I see this happening more and more as the “Church” conforms to the world around it.

Now, I feel we have reached a critical point in the struggle of the world/flesh vs. The Holy Spirit/The Church. That tipping point is the apparent approval of homosexuality by several Mega Church Pastors. Since the Mega Church represents Christianity in the eyes of the Popular Culture the appearance is given that homosexuality in the eyes of God is no longer considered a sin. This is an abomination!

In a sermon on Christianity Pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Community Church in Atlanta, raised eyebrows when he told a story wherein he referred to homosexuality as if it were not a sin. In Georgia, mega-church pastor Jim Swilley openly admits to being a homosexual and states he expects to continue as pastor in his church. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America has formerly adopted a policy to “recognize and support monogamous same gender relationships.” I have friends who, though they are believers, treat homosexuality as if it were somehow not really sin. Even some conservative Christian churches are at best reluctant to address the subject and at worst, are silent.

Recently the President of the United States gave his approval of homosexual “marriage”. All over the country and particularly in the pop culture media the gay lifestyle is no longer seen as an aberration but something that is not only acceptable but even admirable.  Now, many mega-churches and other churches of the liberal denominations have added their approval. We have reached a critical point indeed.

The Bible is clear on the subject of homosexual behavior. The Bible clearly states that if two (of the same sex) lie together, or "know" each other as man knows a woman, then they are condemned, because "it is an abomination to God." - Lev_18:22  Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Throughout the entire Bible homosexuality is condemned. There is no room for doubt, no difference in translation, no contradiction. It is crystal clear. For a man to lie with a man or woman with woman as man lies with his wife brings condemnation.

Lev 20:13 And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

1Co 6:9-10  You know that wicked people will not inherit the kingdom of God, don't you? Stop deceiving yourselves! Sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,
  thieves, greedy people, drunks, slanderers, and robbers will not inherit the kingdom of God. –emphasis added

Rom 1:26-27  For this reason, God delivered them to degrading passions as their females exchanged their natural sexual function for one that is unnatural.
 In the same way, their males also abandoned their natural sexual function toward females and burned with lust toward one another. Males committed indecent acts with males, and received within themselves the appropriate penalty for their perversion.


God has been clear from the beginning as to what is sin and how he feels about it. Any believer who thinks that homosexuality is not a sin, is not an abomination, is ignoring the word of God and substituting their own world view. Christians who are in the position of authority, who are pastors or teachers of Gods word are held to a higher standard than the rest of us (Titus 1:6, 1 Timothy 3:2). There is special condemnation for those who lead someone astray (Matthew 18:6, Luke 12:48). Pastors and teachers who ignore the very word of The Living God invite condemnation.

As I stated, the Bible is perfectly clear as to what constitutes sin. The Bible is also crystal clear as to what mankind must do in order to be forgiven for their sins and to restore their relationship with our righteous and holy God. One must confess their sin, repent and turn away from their sin and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior:

1Co 15:1-4  And, brothers, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you have received, and in which you stand;
 by which you also are being kept safe, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,
  and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures…
John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."

It doesn’t matter what sin we are talking about. All sin separates us from God and condemns the unsaved to an eternal punishment in hell. To deny the sinful nature of homosexuality is not just foolish, it is eternally dangerous! This doesn’t mean that there is no hope however nor does it mean that it is just or right to hate those who are in sin. Jesus came to save sinners. So that, “…whoever believes in Him should not perish…”. Therefore, turn from your sin. Repent and receive Jesus as your Savior. Allow the Holy Spirit to work in your heart and empower you to overcome your flesh and turn from your sin. “Therefore, if anyone is in the Messiah, he is a new creation. Old things have disappeared, and—look!—all things have become new!” -2 Corinthians 5:17.
