Should Christians be involved with combating the moral decay that is currently raging in our culture?

July 10, 2015

God’s truth is eternal and Christian convictions must be commitments of permanence. Political alliances and arrangements are, by definition, temporary and conditional. This is no time for America’s Christians to confuse the City of man with the City of God. At the same time, we can never be counted faithful in the City of God if we neglect our duty in the City of man. That’s a good principle to remember as America gears up for a crucial political debate. – Albert Mohler

Before I get deep into today’s topic,  I wanted to first publicly thank and acknowledge my dear blogging friend Steve over at Cry and Howl for placing Talk Wisdom on The 2015 Cry and Howl Top 20 Conservative Blog Award list!   It was so kind of Steve to recognize this “little fish in the big pond” of blogs out there!

I highly recommend checking out the other blogs on that list!  Really great content can be found at those links and I also want to send congratulations to all the other bloggers on the Cry and Howl award list!

Of course, Steve’s blog is always spot on and influential in the crucial political debates between the truth of conservative thought and the lies of “the new totalitarians” that he often battles against in this highly charged political arena that exists today!

When you go to his site, you will notice that next to my blog name he wrote, “not wholly political.” I also appreciate him for writing that!  This brings me to the topic that I wanted to cover today.

Yes, Talk Wisdom often discusses various political, cultural, and moral issues from the Christian conservative perspective.  But this blog also exists for the additional purpose of sharing God’s truth in the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

When I originally decided what the main goal of this blog would be, I wrote:

Talk Wisdom’s goal is to defend the tenets and values of Biblical Christian faith. We defend our Constitutional Republic and Charters of Freedom, especially when speaking out against destructive social and political issues. As followers of our Savior and Lord, we should boldly stand up for Jesus Christ in our present circumstances. He is our Savior, Lord, and King, and His love needs to be shed abroad in our hearts and in our world – now.

For anyone interested, let me share a bit of history about this blog (including the one I previously had at Blogger) and how I came to the decision to write the content that I write here at Talk Wisdom.

Back in October of 2005, Biola University held its first “God blog Conference.” It was three days that were jam-packed with information, instruction, discussion, and Christian oriented blog content awareness and suggestions.

The important question of whether or not Bible based Christians should be involved or engaged in politics; or just be salt and light in this dark world came up and was debated extensively. Many God bloggers were steadfast in their choices. Some just knew that they were “meant to share the Gospel and biblical principles alone” without getting into tiresome political debates. Others were convinced that it was their calling to draw attention to the political battles that are currently raging in our culture. It is certainly an interesting and valid question. Several prominent Christian leaders (and blog panelists) had different opinions on it and backed their views up with Bible verses.

During one class question and answer session, I recall stating that I wanted my blog to be one that discusses both Christian apologetics as well as how politics, culture, and moral issues can influence us; either positively or negatively.  The professor said something like, “that would be an impossible endeavor!” Apparently, he was of the opinion that it was too much to do within one blog.  Admittedly, it can be a difficult task to juggle all of those goals in one blog.  However, with all due respect to that professor, I came away from the conference with the steadfast decision that I was still willing to try!  Here is what I wrote back in 2009, five years after attending that first God blog Conference:

In 2004, I attended my first blog conference at Biola University. One of the speakers asked members of his class what each of our goals will be in writing Christian-based blog material. I stated that I wanted to write discernment articles that include the gospel of Christ while exposing how politics, culture, education, the media, and apostate churches battle against the Word of God and the message of the gospel. I recall that the professor told me, “that would be an impossible endeavor.”

Yet, here I am, five years later including all of the above with the discussions here at Talk Wisdom. I don’t quite know why the professor thought that way. Perhaps he thought that I should limit myself to apologetics and not include any criticism of the world around us. Or, maybe he worried that any “politically incorrect” approach might turn individuals away from the Gospel message. (Been there, heard that – MANY TIMES – even by some fellow Christian believers.) Perhaps I should have asked him why he thought such an endeavor was “impossible.” I didn’t get the chance to ask him. The session ended abruptly because we were out of time and he was surrounded by bloggers asking many questions.

The following is one of the great quotes of  C. H. Spurgeon:

The Church of Christ is continually represented under the figure of an army; yet its Captain is the Prince of Peace; its object is the establishment of peace, and its soldiers are men of a peaceful disposition. The spirit of war is at the extremely opposite point to the spirit of the gospel.

Yet nevertheless, the church on earth has, and until the second advent must be, the church militant, the church armed, the church warring, the church conquering. And how is this?

It is the very order of things that so it must be. Truth could not be truth in this world if it were not a warring thing, and we should at once suspect that it were not true if error were friends with it. The spotless purity of truth must always be at war with the blackness of heresy and lies.

– C.H. Spurgeon 1

1. Spurgeon, Charles, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, vol. 5 (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1879), 41.

In my opinion, Spurgeon’s quote is ever the more relevant in today’s culture – even more so  than it was back in 2004!

As the graphic above implies – sometimes the truth hurts! However, secular society’s love affair for diversity (even at the expense of causing harm) and tolerance (today’s code word for never offending anyone – except Christians and conservatives!) doesn’t WANT to know any kind of truth that may initially hurt someone (emotionally speaking).

The trouble with the “new tolerance” mantra is that common sense is often sidetracked or even eliminated altogether.  Let’s see a non-political example.  Common sense tells us to grab the arm of a child and pull it hard to prevent that child from running in the street in front of a speeding bus! The truth of the need for rescue may hurt the child physically at that moment in time, but the lie of freedom to do what would harm him if he ran in front of the bus can end up killing the child!

Such an illustration is even important when considering spiritual truth. These days, telling someone who adheres to a false religion is detrimental for them and is not the truth given by God in the Bible may hurt a person’s feelings (at first); but the end result of them finding Jesus Christ and becoming a child of God through the biblical Gospel message brings eternal life that they would not have had without Him!

Spurgeon’s ending line is quite the keeper! It sums it all up in one brilliant sentence!

The spotless purity of truth must always be at war with the blackness of heresy and lies.

Yes. The body of Christ contains many different members with different gifts. One person may be better at teaching children. Another, better at writing poetry or songs that honor the Lord. We all have certain gifts that maybe others don’t have. Some, genuinely may believe that they shouldn’t be involved in volatile political debates.

But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that Bible based  Christians  MUST BE ENGAGED IN THIS BATTLE FOR MORAL PURPOSES.

Whether their contribution in such an effort means actually working in the political field or just assisting (and/or financial support) in the efforts of certain organizations (e.g. Concerned Women for America; Alliance Defending  Freedom – just to name two) that promote Christian morals, values and ethics; it has always been my opinion that we must not let the secular humanistic crowd overtake what we hold dear as American Christians who love God, Jesus Christ, and His Word, the Bible.

I read the following article back then and thought that it spoke directly to my thoughts, concerns, and beliefs of why I think that Bible based Christians must become motivated and involved in combating the moral decay that is currently raging in our culture.

Albert Mohler shares many good talking points throughout the piece.  The point that is especially important and desperately needed today is that Christians who are gifted in this particular area need to be willing to not only read and pay attention to the details, but also need to be willing to act upon them. Mohler sums it up quite well at the end of his article:

We are concerned for the culture not because we believe that the culture is ultimate, but because we know that our neighbors must hear the gospel, even as we hope and strive for their good, peace, security, and well-being.

This is no time for silence, and no time for shirking our responsibilities as Christian citizens. Ominous signs of moral collapse and cultural decay now appear on our contemporary horizon. A society ready to put the institution of marriage up for demolition and transformation is a society losing its most basic moral sense. A culture ready to treat human embryos as material for medical experimentation is a society turning its back on human dignity and the sacredness of human life.

Trouble in the City of Man is a call to action for citizens of the City of God, and that call to action must involve political involvement as well. Christians may well be the last citizens who know the difference between the eternal and the temporal, the ultimate and the urgent. God’s truth is eternal and Christian convictions must be commitments of permanence. Political alliances and arrangements are, by definition, temporary and conditional. This is no time for America’s Christians to confuse the City of Man with the City of God. At the same time, we can never be counted faithful in the City of God if we neglect our duty in the City of Man. That’s a good principle to remember as America gears up for a crucial political debate. * (bold mine)

No matter what you think your particular calling in this life is, as a born-again, Bible believing Christian it is also your duty to at least do something to help turn the tide of moral decay. This needs to be a top priority not only for ourselves and the ‘here and now,’ but even more importantly, for the sakes of our children and grandchildren and their future lives on this earth.

Engaging the City of Man: Christian Faith and Politics

With thanks again to my kind friend Steve at Cry and Howl for including Talk Wisdom in the Cry and Howl Conservative Blog Awards for 2015!

May You and I Be Found Faithful to the Task

June 26, 2015

America is now officially within what Jesus Christ warned about regarding the signs of depravity, sin, and evil which would point towards His return.  Jesus said it would be  As In The Days of Noah and As In The Days of Lot.

Joel C. Rosenberg had written a post back in March, 2015, which is entitled, Three existential threats facing America. (My address to the National Religious Broadcasters convention.)

Rosenberg first discusses Ezekiel chapter 33.  It is about the role of the “Watchman on the Wall.”   Rosenberg (as well as I) believes it is deeply relevant to our times.

Joel writes:

More than 2,500 years ago, the Lord spoke these words to the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel.

  • A man of God
  • Born in Israel
  • Exiled and living in Iraq
  • Amidst grave dangers rising

What was Ezekiel commanded to do? The text is clear.

  • Listen to God
  • Watch for threats
  • Warn the people, come what may

This was a divine calling – an enormous responsibility. And God was clear. Some would listen to Ezekiel’s warnings. Some would not. Ezekiel was not going to be held responsible for the decision others made to obey the Lord or not. He would be held responsible for obeying the Lord, teaching people the Word of God and warning the people when God told him to speak. Fortunately, Ezekiel was faithful to the task.

As followers of Jesus Christ — and as pastors and ministry leaders and religious broadcasters — each of you are, in our modern times, also watchmen on the walls. In many ways, you have the same calling. The same responsibility.

  • To listen to the Word of God, found in the Bible
  • To speak the Word of God — to tell people the bad news and the good news according to the Scriptures
  • To warn people of threats that are rising
  • To speak the truth in love, come what may

God warned Ezekiel — as He warns us today — that if He speaks and we don’t share His Word with others, we will be held to account. What’s more, if we see threats rising, and we do not warn people, we will be held to account.

In the first threat facing America, Rosenberg asks the question:

Threat #1 — What if America is not simply in a season of decline but heading towards collapse, towards implosion?

Within the list of “season of decline” threats we face here in America, he mentions one of the most important factors – the 58 million children in the womb that have been aborted since 1973. That awful Extreme Court decision has wreaked havoc upon the lives of many Americans – especially women! The question is whether or not we, who are called by the name of Jesus Christ will stand in the gap and continue to condemn the evil practice of abortion for the sake of saving this nation from judgment.

Joel writes:

Since 1973, Americans have aborted 58 million babies. Think about that — 58 million. It is a staggering number. And if something doesn’t happen soon to change course, in less than two years we will hit 60 million.

If this happens, we as Americans will have murdered ten times more human beings than the number of Jews murdered by the Nazis.

We know the judgment of God that fell upon Nazi Germany. What do we think is going to happen to a nation that exterminates ten times more people than the Nazis?

The judgment of Almighty God is coming. There is no way out. The souls of 58 million babies are crying out for justice – and they will get it. But for this to happen we need to be pleading with God to have mercy on us. We need to be calling people to prayer, fasting and above all repentance.

At this point in my post I would like to interject another “watchman on the wall” landmark decision which will be coming any day now…perhaps even today, June 26, 2015. The decision on whether or not the Supreme Court of the land will decide to sweep away state’s rights regarding the legality of same-sex “marriage”; and thus change the thousands of years definition that God gave us that marriage is the union of one man and one woman!

Well, the decision has just come down and in a 5-4 vote, the Extreme Court struck down individual state right to ban same-sex “marriage.”

Instinctively, I knew that this would happen. The “deciding” court justice – Kennedy – apparently has a lesbian sister. Who would think that this man would care about the constitutional rights of states to make these decisions? It’s apparently more important to make a decision this huge based on his own personal preferences, rather than what God says in the Bible about marriage; or what our Constitution says about states rights on such decisions.

America is now officially within what Jesus Christ warned about regarding the signs of His return.  Jesus said it would be  As In The Days of Noah and As In The Days of Lot.

Jesus was asked what would be the signs of the times on the earth to indicate his return?

Mat 24:37

“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Luk 17:26

“And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

Luk 17:27

“They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.

Luk 17:28

“Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built;

Luk 17:29

“but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.

Luk 17:30

“Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

Luk 17:31

“In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back.

Luk 17:32

“Remember Lot’s wife.

Luk 17:33

“Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.

There was an excellent post in my reader last night that explained the dire consequences of a sweeping same-sex “marriage” ruling for all 50 states here in America. I need to find it again. When I do, I will post it here.

Found it!  Here is a copy in its entirety:

IT IS NOT ABOUT “GAY” MARRIAGE!  IT IS ALL ABOUT DESTROYING THE FIRST AMENDMENT!

The Supreme Court is set to decide whether or not there is a Constitutionally protected right to ‘gay’ marriage, but this is not what is actually being decided.  What is really being decided is whether or not rights can contradict.  The goal is to establish that rights can contradict because it opens the door for government to decide which rights take precedence over others.  I have already explained why rights cannot contradict and why.  This then begs the question as to why the Courts would even consider this case about ‘gay’ marriage.  The answer is simple: this is not about rights.  That claim is just propaganda aimed at creating an emotional appeal so you will not use reason to examine what is really happening.  However, if you can set the emotion aside and look at what is actually happening, you will quickly see that this is about giving the government a path to destroy the First Amendment!

The process is simple: if there is a ‘right’ to ‘gay’ marriage, then it suddenly becomes a ‘hate’ crime to oppose ‘gay’ marriage in any form.  This opens the door to the destruction of faith-based organizations.  It will not matter whether they are churches or businesses, they will have to comply with the government dictates or be shut down.  But it goes further than that.  If you are a doctor but disagree with homosexuality, you could lose your job.  Same for lawyers, firemen, police officers: anyone who disagrees with homosexuality will be at risk of government persecution.

You see, what the Supreme Court is actually about to rule on is whether or not the government has the authority to define bigotry and then use that as a justification to persecute anyone who has just been declared a bigot.  This is one of the reasons I write so much about language, both here, but especially on my other blog, The OYL.  If the government is allowed to redefine the meaning of words at will, then it does not matter what the law says: it will change according to the whims of the government.  This is the very definition of tyranny.  Yet, this is what the Supreme Court is about to decide: whether or not the government has dictatorial powers.

If you doubt me, consider this: what happens is someone you disagree with politically gets into power?  And once in power, that person reverses the definitions of words?  And hatred is suddenly defined as anyone who opposes Islam?  It may not bother you that Jews and Christians will still be persecuted, but now, so will homosexuals.  Yes, the court and law will still say you cannot ‘discriminate’ because of homosexuality, but the government will have just put the rights of Muslims over those of homosexuals.  So now, where the law will allow homosexuals to claim their rights over those of Christians, it will also support the rights of Muslims to exercise their rights over both homosexuals and Christians.  Now, just in case you do not understand what this means, I’ll explain: it means Christians will have to either convert to Islam, pay a punitive tax or die.  However, homosexuals only have one option — to die!

There are other scenarios that I could use to illustrate how this will work, but the point is this: it is not about ‘gay’ marriage, it is about opening a path to destroy the First Amendment.  It is about destroying the right to conscience, and by extension, freedom of expression. It is about the Supreme Court finally handing the government dictatorial powers as a matter of law.  But understand, if the Court does this, it will actually be destroying the law.  So this ruling is not about ‘gay’ rights: it is about the final destruction of the U.S. Constitution — period!

H/T: The Road to Concord

After reading that post over at “The Road to Concord,” I was reminded of a post I wrote back in 2010. At first, I was confused about the following photo which was taken in a “World Can’t Wait” protest march. The photo and brief excerpt below (written in 2013) describes what (and why) there is this unholy alliance of Islam and Communism.

Notice that the man holding the sign is wearing Muslim terrorist garb.  The man walking next to him is wearing a commie red t-shirt with the image of Che Guevara!

How ironic that the Muslim man is holding that sign (below)!  Here’s a quote from Che Guevara that may explain their union of nefarious ideologies:

“I don’t care if I fall as long as someone else picks up my gun and keeps on shooting.”

Che Guevara

H/T Brainy Quote

I wish that more Americans would heed Ronald Reagan’s advice:

Ronald Reagan

“How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

Ronald Reagan

 

What those two men (seen in photo above), marching together, BTW, in an anti-Israel demonstration during the Bush presidential years) represent is the forming of an alliance between radical Islam and Communism!  Also, notice what the sign says:  “Thank You S.F. (San Francisco) Liberals – You Die Last.”  How ANYONE could possibly support either group is beyond any semblance of reason!  Liberals are being USED by both!  Yet they are either complicit in either ideology or just too damn ignorant to realize it!
Only one of these evil and nefarious ideologies will win out (meaning, here on this earth – in a temporary way – while the Lord Jesus Christ tarries) and the bloodbath will be ugly!  With all of this in mind, let’s re-read what  the author at The Road to Concord stated:

You see, what the Supreme Court is actually about to rule on is whether or not the government has the authority to define bigotry and then use that as a justification to persecute anyone who has just been declared a bigot.  This is one of the reasons I write so much about language, both here, but especially on my other blog, The OYL.  If the government is allowed to redefine the meaning of words at will, then it does not matter what the law says: it will change according to the whims of the government.  This is the very definition of tyranny.  Yet, this is what the Supreme Court is about to decide: whether or not the government has dictatorial powers.

If you doubt me, consider this: what happens is someone you disagree with politically gets into power?  And once in power, that person reverses the definitions of words?  And hatred is suddenly defined as anyone who opposes Islam?  It may not bother you that Jews and Christians will still be persecuted, but now, so will homosexuals.  Yes, the court and law will still say you cannot ‘discriminate’ because of homosexuality, but the government will have just put the rights of Muslims over those of homosexuals.  So now, where the law will allow homosexuals to claim their rights over those of Christians, it will also support the rights of Muslims to exercise their rights over both homosexuals and Christians.  Now, just in case you do not understand what this means, I’ll explain: it means Christians will have to either convert to Islam, pay a punitive tax or die.  However, homosexuals only have one option — to die!

Next, go back and read what Joel Rosenberg wrote regarding these two points:

RADICAL ISLAM AND APOCALYPTIC ISLAM

Threat #2 — What if America is not simply at rising risk of attack by Radical Islam but heading towards the risk of annihilation by Apocalyptic Islam?

ISRAEL

Which brings me finally to Threat #3 — What if America is not simply entering a season of strained relations with Israel, but we are heading towards total American abandonment of the Jewish State?

We need to heed Joel Rosenberg’s words:

This is the most dangerous moment in the history of the U.S.-Israel relationship.

What do the next two years hold?

I’m not sure. But this much I know: on top of all America’s national challenges and sins, we dare not also abandon or turn against Israel and the Jewish people. If we do, we will seal our fate with God.

Which brings me back to you — the watchmen on the walls.

Are you warning the nation and the Church of the dangerous road the President has us on vis-à-vis Israel?

Are you mobilizing Christians to love and bless and pray for and stand with Israel and the Jewish people in this critical hour?

CONCLUSION

I am afraid I cannot tell you whether God will grant America a Third Great Awakening and/or raise up a King like Josiah (see 2 Chronicles 34-35) and thus forestall the coming judgment.

I cannot tell you whether the American government will do its job to protect us and our allies from Radical and Apocalyptic Islam before it’s too late.

Or whether the Church will do her job in fulfilling the Great Commission and standing with our persecuted brothers and sisters in the epicenter.

Or whether America and the Church will stand with Israel and bless her and the Jewish people.

All I can tell you is that you and I have been called to be watchmen on the walls.

Our job is to:

  • Listen to and study and know the Word of God
  • Teach the Word of God
  • Watch for threats
  • Warn the people, come what may

We are not going to be held responsible if people do not listen to us or to the Word of God. We will be held to account if we fail to speak and act when the Lord commands us to do so.

Much is hanging in the balance. May you and I be found faithful to the task.

 

We need to heed God’s Word even more!

 

1Pe 3:12

For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
And His ears are open to their prayers;
But the face of the LORD is against those who do evil.” [fn]

1Pe 3:13

And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good?

1Pe 3:14

But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” [fn]

1Pe 3:15

But sanctify the Lord God [fn] in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;

1Pe 3:16

having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.

1Pe 3:17

For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

1Pe 3:18

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us [fn] to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit,

1Pe 3:19

by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison,

1Pe 3:20

who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited [fn] in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.

1Pe 3:21

There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

1Pe 3:22

who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.

If it Weren’t for My TV, I Wouldn’t Know What is Real

May 28, 2015

There is a contemporary Christian singer named Brandon Heath who had a hit song back in 2011 entitled, “Leaving Eden.”. One phrase within the song says, “If it weren’t for my TV, I wouldn’t know what is real.”

This song came to mind when I read the following post:

Stately McDaniel Manor: Once Upon a Time a Leader.

I could not help but tear up so much when I read the account of President George W. Bush and his visit with one patient during the time he had visited several wounded warriors at Walter Reed military hospital near the White House.

So, why was I reminded of Brandon Heath’s lyric, “If it weren’t for my TV, I wouldn’t know what is real?”

Because of how the media of mass deception badly treated President George W. Bush over the 8 years of his presidency, vs. how they continue to prop up Obama – despite his disastrous actions and failures on just about everything he has done (and those important things he has NOT done) while being the supposed Commander-In-Chief over the past 6+ years.

Excerpt from article link:

George W. Bush was hated by the American media with a pathology seldom seen outside 1800s insane asylums. When he was photographed in a flight suit onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln in May of 2003, where he delivered a speech announcing the end of major combat in Iraq, the media—and leftists (but I repeat myself)—went absolutely berserk with indignation and rage. How dare he proclaim “mission accomplished?” How dare he dress up like a jet pilot? It mattered not, of course, that the “mission accomplished” banner hanging on the island of the carrier was hung by the crew, who, having finished a cruise—accomplished their mission–were nearly home. it also mattered nothing that Mr. Bush actually was a jet pilot. He took the controls of the jet that flew him to the carrier and flew for some distance. The fact that he so looked the part in a flight suit only served to inflame the tender sensibilities of the left.

And when he made a surprise Thanksgiving visit to the troops in Baghdad in 2003, the media and left were again berserk with rage. Mr. Bush loved the troops, and they loved him. Their genuine surprise and outpouring of joy and respect burned the left who can never command such devotion. Some even accused him of posing with a fake turkey! Unlike Mr. Obama’s standard operating procedure, there was nothing pre-arranged or posed about that day.

One can disagree with some of Mr. Bush’s decisions—I certainly do—but his love for America, our troops, and Americans can never be disparaged. Consider this excerpt from Dana Perino’s new book.

When you read the entire article at the Fox News link, you will find that one mother raged against the President – asking why it wasn’t his son laying in that hospital bed instead of hers?

President Bush stood there and took it – like a man.

I ask you, has anyone ever heard of Obama placing himself in such a situation? Maybe he has and I haven’t heard about it. Somehow, I doubt it.

Everything seems to be staged for Obama, and the lap-dog media is often certain to be sure that only the “good” coverage comes out about him. However, when there are so many disastrous mistakes being made by this BADministration, why isn’t the media reporting them?

[Update: Another example of the media of mass deception –

Media BiASS: Daily Garbage News..]

The alphabet soup stations and the two cable news stations that are in Marxist/Islamist-step with Obama certainly do not cover the egregious damage that this community organizer has done to America both at home and abroad! Only Fox News has the courage to report the truth.  But even that station refuses to report all of the truth.

People can find out much more of the truth of what is going on to ruin our once great nation through the programmed regressive actions (policies which are being touted as “progressive” which the far left has renamed from its Marxist/Commie/Islamo-Fascist roots of the past) of this entire BADministration both at home and abroad via conservative talk radio (Limbaugh, Hannity etc.) and online news sources.

Again, we see the irony of Brandon Heath’s lyric, “If it weren’t for my TV, I wouldn’t know what is real.” The media of mass deception shows the staged speeches of Obama in front of military members, but neglects to share the fact that according to the  Military Times: Mere 15 Percent of Troops Approve of Obama. If that had been a statistic for President Bush, I’m sure that the media would have reported on that statistic 24/7 and would have blasted Bush for it! But for “dear leader” Obama? No can do.

No U.S. President has ever been perfect, and none will. But the unfair disparaging of President Bush (with whom I have disagreed with on several occasions) was terribly inaccurate and unwarranted.  In drastic contrast, the propped up image of Obama continues by way of the TV media throughout his disastrous presidency.  This fact is egregiously unfair and devastating for our nation and the world!

We are now seeing the calamitous, distrustful, and ruinous liar Hillary Clinton being propped up for the next election; just like Obama has been over the years.  Don’t even get me started on her!

I just pray to God, through my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that Americans will see through the lies, the fog of deception and the reign of evil being hoisted upon us.  May they finally see through the liar-in-chief puppet, his puppeteers, and the minions that work for the Saul Alinsky, Agenda 21 programmed regressives who are in all actuality the Marxist/Socialist/Commie/Islamo-Fascists from the past failed “utopias” where the nefarious “elitists” lead all towards evil, sin and death.

We were created for Eden a perfect world with easy communion between us and God. Due to the effects of sin both us and the earth have fallen but God is in the process of restoring us and he will bring us back to Eden when we meet him in the new heaven and earth. Our True home with him is more magnificent and glorious than we can comprehend!

But it is also hopeful in the end. For we hold the hope of the world and must spread this hope. Our Savior lives and is coming again for us!

Amen!!!

Brandon Heath’s song lyrics:

Leaving Eden
(Brandon Heath, Lee Thomas Miller)

(One more step away)
Headlines read like a warning, we’re under attack
(One more step away)
I just waved to a stranger, he didn’t wave back
(One more step away)
And if it weren’t for my TV, I wouldn’t know what is real
(One more step away)
My doctor can’t do a thing for how I feel

Feels like I’m leaving Eden
Feels like I’m leaving Eden

People are losing their homes to hurricanes
(One more step away)
Old lady living next door forgot her own name
(One more step away)
Teacher is hiding her Bible, but at least she’s got a job
(One more step away)
My local Salvation Army just got robbed

Oh
Feels like I’m leaving Eden
Feels like I’m leaving Eden
It’s like I’m further away with every step I take
And I can’t go back
‘Cause I’m leaving Eden

I’m going, going home
I’m going, going home
There’s no place, no place like home
Oh, There’s no place, no place like home
Oh, oh

When you’re leaving Eden
When you’re leaving Eden
Oh
It’s like I’m further away with every step I take
And I can’t go back
‘Cause I’m leaving, leaving Eden

Four Blood Moons Update

May 27, 2015

There are various opinions regarding the phenomenon known as the Four Blood Moons.  In a previous post, I shared some thoughts about the Four Blood Moons Documentary which was shown in theaters nationwide on two specific dates back in March and April, 2015.

I was curious to find out when the documentary would be released on DVD, and found my answer at the Four Blood Moons movie website. It will be available on June 23, 2015.

During my search, I discovered a website called Breaking Israel News. Unfortunately, today’s headline on the front page shares the latest attack from Gaza upon the Jewish State of Israel and how the IAF Strikes Gaza Following Rocket Fire on Israel.

However, the first page that I read there had to do with an interesting article written back in March about “Four Blood Moons Movie”: The Winners and Losers.

Links within the post brought even more fascinating information!

There are many to read, but here are the ones I have read so far:

1. Exclusive: Friday’s Solar Eclipse Linked to Fateful 1492 Blood Moon.

This portion was truly exciting:

“My mouth nearly dropped to the floor when I discovered the path of the 1492 solar eclipse.”

NASA has tracked the path of the solar eclipse of April 26, 1492, which began in the Pacific Ocean south of the equator and traveled northeast crossing the thin land bridge where, years later, the Panama Canal would be built. On the Jewish calendar, April 26, 1492 corresponds to the fifth day of Passover (20 Nissan), which the Bible states is two days before the Exodus from Egypt and the splitting of the sea.

Screenshot from NASA website on the path of the solar eclipse of April 26, 1492.

After then clipping the very top of South America, the path of the 1492 solar eclipse headed southeast in the Atlantic Ocean very close to the shortest crossing point between South America and Africa.

“It is almost like it was a signpost being placed on earth for later generations to see, once the age of computers would arrive,” O’Dell explained to Breaking Israel News.

“God could have been saying to the world, that yes, you can expel the Jews from Spain, but I am going to open up the Americas so they would have a place of refuge until their ultimate homeland was ready to receive them.”

 

2. CUFI Denounces Journalist for Article Attacking Pastor John Hagee

As with anything else that a Christian Pastor presents as evidence of the God of the Bible, Pastor Hagee was attacked by a Huffington Post writer who apparently wrote an untruthful screed against Hagee; accusing him of anti-Semitism!

Go to that link and read the truth about Hagee and his decades long friendship with Israel!

Excerpt:

Hagee has long enjoyed a close relationship with the Jewish community and was honored in 2013 by leading Jewish organizations for his “years of support and humanitarian endeavors on behalf of Israel,” including more than $80 million in donations by John Hagee Ministries to Israeli charities, which is a separate entity from CUFI [Christians United For Israel].

 

Just goes to prove…you can’t believe everything written on the HuffPoo site!

 

3. Root Source is a website started by a Jewish founder and CEO named Gidon Ariel. The Christian co-founder is Bob O’Dell.

What is Root Source?

Today, more and more Christians and Jews are hearing the divine call to wake up and engage with one another.

Root Source is answering that call: Knowledgeable, Orthodox Israeli Jews teaching Christians around the world online about Jewish concepts, ideas and thought, to more deeply understand the roots of their faith, in an informal and loving manner.

Root Source enables and encourages dialogue and relationships between Christians and Jews, and empowers Christians to learn like Jews have been learning for centuries. Our Israeli Jewish teachers know you are a Christian, and respect your identity and your faith. Root Source gives you access to world-class Jewish biblical teaching online, helping you learn deeper and reach higher in your Christian faith, with the opportunity to ask any question openly.

Our members are often surprised at how quickly they can learn deeper biblical truths from Orthodox Jewish teachings and directly and practically apply those teachings to their own Christian faith.

I can attest to the fact that when Christians learn about the Jewish Feasts Days and their significance (as well as how they point to the Messiah – Jesus Christ!); our faith can be exponentially increased!

For example, read my post from Good Friday of this year (which fell on the first day of Passover!) How the Passover/Seder Reveals Jesus Christ!

Warning Signs: Israel Will Attack Iran Soon

April 29, 2015

While checking out some of the headlines from my former blog’s links, I found an important article written by Alan Caruba at his blog Warning Signs. Found the article via Noisy Room.

I have thought for some time now that Israel will eventually be the nation that will need to take out the nuclear reactors in Iran. Our current resident at the White House (and his boss – Valerie Jarrett) will need to “save face” and claim that a deal (no matter how awful it will probably be!) has been made with the taqiyya Mullahs of that Islamic terrorist regime; leaving the entire world vulnerable to the Islamist fanatics!

When I read Alan’s name, it sounded familiar to me. Years ago, I think that he may have been a friend on Facebook. Since I don’t venture into that social media realm anymore, I’m glad that I found his blog!

The title of the post is Israel Will Attack Iran Soon.

Alan encourages sharing his posts so here is the article in its entirety:

Israel Will Attack Iran Soon

by Alan Caruba

The Israelis will destroy several Iranian nuclear facilities and my educated guess is that they will do so before the end of this year.

Israel has no margin of error when it comes to nuclear reactors in nations that threaten its existence. While President Obama does everything in his power to enable Iran to create its own nuclear weapons, it is a good idea to recall that in June 1981 the Israelis destroyed a reactor in Iraq. It was the first air strike against such a facility. In September 2007, the Israelis destroyed a Syrian reactor. There was no reprisal in either case.

From Wednesday, April 22 to Friday April 24 the Israelis struck Hizbollah and Syrian military targets in the Walamoun Mountains on the Syrian-Lebanese border. The calculations were that the location, a site for long-range missiles, would be safer from the Israelis. They were wrong.

In September 2014, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the United Nations General Assembly warning “don’t be fooled by Iran’s manipulative charm offensive. It’s designed for one purpose and for one purpose only. To lift the sanctions and remove the obstacles to Iran’s path to the bomb.”

“Once Iran produces atomic bombs, all the charm and all the smiles will suddenly disappear. They’ll just vanish. It’s then that the ayatollahs will show their true face and unleash their aggressive fanaticism on the entire world.” He offered a comparable message to a joint meeting of Congress in March of this year.

Is anyone listening? Not President Obama. On April 25, writing in The Wall Street Journal, Mortimer Zuckerman, the chairman and editor in chief of the U.S. News and World Report, said “President Obama has been chasing a rainbow in his negotiations with Iran. He has forsaken decades of pledges to the civilized world from presidents of both parties. He has misled the American people in repeatedly affirming that the U.S. would never allow revolutionary Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.”

It’s bad enough when you can’t trust your nation’s enemies, but when you cannot trust your own President you have a very big problem because Iran is not just a threat to America and Israel, but to the entire world.

Obama’s anti-Semitism is obvious to anyone paying the least attention. He particularly loathes Israel. In early April the White House let its unhappiness be known that Netanyahu had, in its words, failed to tone down “hostile and aggressive language” of the Passover religious service. What were those words? “Next year in Jerusalem.”

This is an ancient Jewish prayer that sustained generations of Jews over the course of two millennia, expressing their hope to return to their homeland. To the White House, however, it was “affront to the Palestinians, not to mention a slap in the face to President Obama himself who has worked tirelessly for peace despite Israeli intransigence.” The Jews returned to Israel, declared its independence in 1948, and have had the support of every President since…until Obama.

The Israelis know this. Since their independence the Israelis have fought seven recognized wars, two Palestinian intifadas, and a series of armed conflicts in the broader Arab-Israeli conflict. Most recently they put down Hamas in the Gaza once again for its repeated rocketing.

Despite or because of this, the Israelis have sought to demonstrate good will toward their Arab neighbors. There is an untold story of the December 2014 meeting of six Gulf Cooperation Council rulers in the Qatari capital of Doha to discuss steps to respond to challenges that include Iranian aggression and clamping down on the Muslim Brotherhood.

Sources close to event report that Netanyahu has achieved close coordination with the most important Arab leaders that include Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Other members of the Council include Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.

The Israelis have no choice, nor do I anticipate that Iran will do much, if anything, to respond in the wake of the ashes of those facilities. No other nation will come to their aid.

*******

I think he is correct!

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has won re-election; precisely because the Israelis know that they will need a strong leader to prevent Iran from EVER acquiring a nuclear weapon.  If the diabolical and fanatical Iranians ever did create a nuclear weapon, (God forbid!) they would not hesitate to immediately use it to  attack Israel!

0bama won’t prevent it.

Jarrett – his Iranian born “advisor” certainly won’t tell her puppet Barry to prevent it.

Therefore, if Jesus tarries, it will take a brave human leader like Netanyahu in Israel to not only save Israel and the United States of America from the Iranian fanatics (who would not hesitate to use a nuclear weapon against either one of our countries!);  but will also end up helping to save the entire world from the radical Islamic Caliphate-wannabes in Iran from getting the nuclear bomb!

For Such A Time As This

March 7, 2015

H/T for graphic:  lemonvilleunited.ca

In a previous post, I shared an excerpt and link to Joel C. Rosenberg’s blog post which discussed the significance of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech occurring on the day before the Jewish holiday of Purim.  Purim is a celebration of when a brave woman named Esther risked not only disfavor, but death, when she decided to approach the king and make her requests known.  She did this in order to expose the murderous plan of Haman and ask for protection for the Jewish people that Haman planned to slaughter.

Here is the significant part of my previous post:

And, don’t miss Joel’s post about seeing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the Joint Session of Congress yesterday!!!

On eve of Purim, Netanyahu warns of rising Persian threat to Israel & the world and danger of making a bad deal with Tehran

Excerpt:

That was one for the ages.

In 25 years living in or near the nation’s capital, I have never actually been to a Joint Session of Congress. But if there was ever a speech I wanted to hear, it was this one.

I wish you could have been there with me. It was so fascinating — and so humbling — to be in the House Chamber as the Prime Minister of Israel arrived to thunderous and continuous applause.

As I listened to him speak, I felt I was witnessing history being made, as if Winston Churchill himself were personally warning us of the gathering storm.

On the eve of Purim, the Jewish holiday remembering the Biblical book of Esther and the Persian plot to annihilate the Jewish people 2,500 years ago, Prime Minister Netanyahu warned the world of a new Persian/Iranian threat to Israel and the world. He made it clear how dangerous this Iran deal is, and Iran’s repeated threats to annihilate Israel and the U.S., and why we need to work together to stop Iran, not help them get The Bomb. [To read the transcript of the speech, please click here]

It was electric in that chamber. One standing ovation after another. From Democrats and Republicans. Liberals and conservatives. Young and old. Rabbis and pastors. There was such a sense of unity and warmth and bipartisanship. It was so rare, and so refreshing — I’ve never experienced anything else like it in the political realm!  [To watch the video of the speech, please click here].

Today, I listened to a segment of Glenn Beck’s show on The Blaze website, and I thought that it was important for my Christian friends to read about what many in the press “will not talk about.”  There is also a complimentary audio clip at link below.

The Blaze.com: ‘Absolutely Brilliant’: Beck Says ‘No One Will Talk About’ This Element of Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress

Excerpt:

Glenn Beck on Friday weighed in on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent speech to Congress, saying “no one will talk about” the spiritual element of his remarks.

“This is really critically important, and I’m not surprised that nobody in the media picked this up,” Beck said. “This is something that we predicted, that I said in advance. I said he’s coming the week the Jews remember Esther. So everybody was focused on ‘Oh, he’s coming for the elections that are happening in two months.’ No, he’s not. He picked this week because this is the week that the Jews remember what happened to Esther.”

“If you don’t know the story of Esther, it’s really quite critical here,” Beck added. “Esther was a queen in Persia, and the king was somebody who was being misled by a guy named Haman. Haman was going to kill all the Jews, and the king was going to allow it to happen.”

Mordecai went to Esther and told her to speak to the king, even though those who approached the king without being summoned could be killed. Mordecai told Esther she was born for a time such as this, and added that there would be deliverance for the Jews, but the king’s people may not survive if he allowed the slaughter to occur. In Netanyahu’s speech, he referenced the book of Esther and said Jews today face the same threat from “yet another Persian potentate,” Iran.

“I think we are Esther, and he was saying clearly to the American people – that you were born [for times such as this],” Beck said. “He didn’t say this, but this is what he was implying: ‘You as a nation may not stand if you don’t side with the Jewish people today. God’s commandments will tell you that. If you side with the Jew, you will survive. If you don’t, you will not survive.’ So he was coming to us, without ever saying it, just in timing, saying: ‘You’ve got to stand up. We need America by our side. But more importantly, you need the Jewish people by your side.’”

“No one will talk about this. That is the key to this speech, because he was speaking to us in spiritual terms,” Beck concluded. “Wake up, America. You are going to lose your place in the world if you don’t stand with the Jewish people. You are Esther.’”

Perhaps the news media did not pick up on this important spiritual element within Netanyahu’s speech, but at least there are bloggers out their sharing this information!

Have you shared this vitally important observation and topic at your blog? Please post a comment and I will add a link to your post here!

Thank you and God bless!

UPDATE!  I found another blog that discusses this topic and the author goes even further into biblical prophecy!

Oil For Your Lamp: PROPHECY IN THE HEADLINES: The Book of Esther; Netanyahu’s Speech; the 9/11 Harbinger; Saudi Arabia’s Support of Israel and Biblical/Islamic Prophecy

Excerpt:

This week, Saudi Arabia declared Obama to be one of the worst American Presidents — ever!  We should not ignore the importance of this.  It is not because Obama is working to weaken Israel.  Saudi Arabia shares that goal.  The significance is that Obama considers Iran an ally.  This means, even though he is working to undermine Israel, Obama is an enemy of Saudi Arabia.  But this is not readily apparent — unless you understand Islam and Islamic prophecy.  You see, Islamic prophecy says that Mecca will be destroyed right before the end times (this link is from an Islamic site and explains these prophecies).  Iran is seeking to destroy Saudi Arabia because the Shi’a Muslims in Iran consider the Sunni Muslims in Saudi Arabia to be apostate.  The Iranians also believe they can hasten the return of their Mahdi by destroying Mecca.  If I were you, I would watch for this to happen — not just because Islam is divided and at war with itself, but because this is exactly what the Bible foretells.

How To Know God Personally [Click on link to discover the principles!]

What does it take to begin a relationship with God? Devote yourself to unselfish religious deeds? Become a better person so that God will accept you?

You may be surprised that none of those things will work. But God has made it very clear in the Bible how we can know Him.

The following principles will explain how you can personally begin a relationship with God, right now, through Jesus Christ…

Which America Do You Believe In?

July 3, 2014

I began contemplating this particular blog post after sharing a book and comments from an individual in the comment section of my last post (Facebook’s Secret Mood Manipulation).  Much of what I desire to share here brings to mind the reality of what is actually going on in our nation – vis a vis – the government elitists vs. We The People.

Many across the country – Conservative, Republican, Libertarian, and even some Democrats – have already caught on to the game that keeps going round and round within the political world of Washington D.C.  There is a political cancer infecting our government, and it is responsible for negatively influencing many unsuspecting people within our nation.  Basically, it is called “progressivism.”  Of course, we all know that this is not a new phenomenon. Quite the contrary, it has been going on (quite aggressively as of late) since the 1960’s.  The people involved used to be called liberals, and the social issues were often referred to as “liberalism.” But the radical changes happening today go way beyond the original definition of that term.

Our children (including Busters, Generation X, and Millennials) have been brain-dirtied by the radicals of the ’60s.  How so? Will get to that in a bit.

First, I need to explain that such radicals who may have started out as being benign protestors, gravitated towards more violence. They decided that in order to get attention, they needed to bomb government buildings, kill police officers, and, went so far as to even make an attempt to kill a judge and his sleeping children in their own home. When that got them nowhere, they decided to get degrees, put on suits, and become lawyers or professors at large universities.  Those who got away with their crimes and became (supposedly) “honorable” citizens with high-paying jobs (and unfettered access to college students) included two members of the FBI’s most wanted list and homeland terrorists in the 70’s – Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn. Both of them escaped justice for their heinous crimes because they got off on technicalities. They should have been locked up for their roles in the bombings of 20 government buildings, the deaths of police officers (leaving 8 children without a father), and their failed attempt (thank God) to fire-bomb and kill a judge and his family in their own home. Ayers and Dorhn were part of The Weather Underground – a home-grown terrorist group of the ’60s and 70’s who rationalized doing these things in protest of the Vietnam War.

If you missed Megyn Kelly’s three-part interview with the unrepentant terrorist, Bill Ayers, you need to do yourself a service and view all of them! Click HERE  It’s absolutely riveting – to say the least!  At the end, you will see the mindset of progressive-minded radicals (like Ayers) of the ’60s and 70’s are now “respected” professors teaching our children in colleges and universities across the nation.  The propaganda that has been fed to our children by the likes of these creepy and dangerous individuals has resulted in what we are now seeing as the current “hate America”  mentality, causing a downward spiral  of devastating consequences being hurled at our country and We The People, due to the members of the mentally ill asylum being in power and running (I mean, ruining!) America.

In my last post, I reported on Facebook’s mood manipulation experiment and included a link to a post where it was discovered that this “experiment” was tied to the Department of Defense.

SCG News: Facebook’s Psychological Experiments Connected to Department of Defense Research on Civil Unrest!

You might wonder, why would the DOD be involved with a social media’s experiment and why would “mood manipulation” be something that they would want to investigate?  The answer is in the title to the link above this paragraph.  It was for research on civil unrest.

The current nefarious government KNOWS how angry a majority of Americans are at all of the scandals going on in Washington D.C.  It gets worse by the day, and you can also throw in all the chaos going on in the Middle East due to our feckless resident in the White House and his puppeteers.  One quick note – if you never saw Dinesh D’Souza’s film “2016 – Obama’s America” – you should see it now.  You can view the entire film online!

Click here:  2016: Obama’s America

[Note: Within the first few minutes you will hear Obama’s lie, “For those of you who didn’t vote for me, I hear your voices and will be your president too.” In hindsight, we know what a liar he was (and continues to be) from the very beginning!]

You will see how absolutely prophetic this documentary (released in 2012)  has now turned out to be! It was made back in early 2012 with the goal of being  a warning to the American people regarding what havoc Obama would wreak if he got a second term in office. When it was made, the so-called “Arab Spring” had begun.  We now see what a mess that turned out to be – from the Benghazi terrorist attack to the slaughtering going on in Syria, to the ISIS Islamic takeover in Iraq.  D’Souza already saw a vision (and includes it at the end of his 2012 documentary, “2016: Obama’s America”) of the upcoming progress of the various radical Islamist groups.  Their goal?   To establish an Islamic Caliphate.  Once this is done – they will go after Israel, the United States, and the rest of the world.  Glen Beck was another person who feared that the “Arab Spring” would lead to an Islamic Caliphate, way back in 2010.  Media pundits laughed and mocked him.  But now, just who are the stooges?

Another quick note. Recall President George W. Bush and his Administration telling the American people that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were necessary,  not only just to “get Bin Laden” but also to PREVENT THE ESTABLISHMENT (or safe haven) OF A BASE OF OPERATION FOR TERRORIST GROUPS THAT WOULD PLAN MORE ATTACKS AGAINST OUR NATION AND ISRAEL?

When Obama got into office, he didn’t care whether or not we won either war. He didn’t work to get Al Maliki to agree to the need to leave some U.S. troops  in Iraq in order to help keep the peace already won there and to keep any future terrorists groups out. Now we have a more rabid and dangerous Islamic group called ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) capturing cities all across Iraq and heading to the prized city of Baghdad.  They are involved in unimaginable atrocities, killings, religious cleansing of Christians, and causing carnage all across the country. In fact, they are so brazen now that they have shortened their name to IS (Islamic State). If you know the history of WWII, you would know that this tactic is similar to what Hitler tried to do with his evil Nazi Socialist mindset back in the 1940’s. But I digress.

D’Souza has a new film out called “America.”  It discusses the idea of what the world would be like if America was never created.  I’m looking forward to seeing it soon and will write a blog post about it after I view the movie.

During my research for my last blog post – “Facebook deceptive practices of manipulation,” I came across some comments from Trenton Fervor that I thought were amazingly on target regarding what We The People see as the attempted destruction, (from within our own government) of our beloved nation. Fervor has also written a book entitled, “The Myth of American Democracy: The Deification of Democratic Governance and the Subversion of Individual Liberty.”

That title alone describes what so many people (and, not only TEA Party Patriots, but also Independents, Libertarians, and even some Democrats) are now seeing, and feeling, about both the Executive and Congressional branches of our government. We all feel that the elitists in Washington D.C. ARE NOT LISTENING TO WE THE PEOPLE!

I could cite dozens of usurpations and criminal activities here, but hopefully readers have been paying attention and already know about the various scandals. However, I will cite one recent example where the establishment elitists will even cross party lines in order to crush new blood and faces from getting into the Senate.

View this video: Fox Business.com: Allegations of vote buying in Mississippi and Fox News.com: FEC looks into PAC that backed Thad Cochran.

This is evidence of how low nefarious elitists will go in order to keep their power; as well as those elitists of the same political party (Haley Barbour??? Shame on you!!!) who would sabotage an election where a TEA Party backed candidate would have most likely have the primary winner before the 2014 Midterm election.  What’s worse is that they used Democratic voters (many are reporting that they were black Democrats) to be PAID $15.00 in order to go and vote in the Mississippi Republican primary. If they already voted in the Democratic primary, then IT IS ILLEGAL for them to vote in a Republican run-off! We shall see how this debacle ends up.

Many Conservatives believe that other types of voter fraud and hijinks were used in Florida years ago for the purpose of getting the former Lieutenant Colonel and TEA Party hero, Representative Allen West (a black conservative Republican) out of Congress.

Integrity, honesty, truth, and fair play went out the window in politics quite a while ago. But now, things have gotten so brazen and worse  that certain elitist candidates (and their dishonest backers) will do ANYTHING to get re-elected. They are power hungry, money grubbing, dirty-minded, and dishonest to the core! I pray that term limits for Congress will one day be the norm in this nation!

Back to T. Fervor’s book and comments.

I haven’t read his book yet. I don’t know exactly where he stands within the political spectrum. I won’t know (until I read the book) whether or not I will agree with all that he believes. However, the following comments that he made under a post about the Facebook mood manipulation experiment caught my eye and I thought that they were important to share with my readers:

TFervor • 20 hours ago

US Declaration of Independence, 1776:
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpation’s, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security… ”

The future of American democracy is not about liberty, constitutionalism, individual rights, privacy, voluntary association, pluralistic living options, or limited government—it’s about universalizing the reign of elite-sanctioned reason. Government will become ever-more totalitarian, and this totalitarianism will be increasingly premised on the assertion of a “self-evident” “legitimacy of rationality.” An elite-vision conforming rationality. Whatever strategically promotes the elites’ vision qualifies as a rational action. If an action has been ordained to be “right” by the political establishment illuminati, it is therefore legitimate and necessary—regardless of popular sentiment or constitutional obstacles.

There will never be a “final straw” regarding the loss of liberty. The government is never going to push you over “the line”; the whole process is one of moving you and your line—like boiling a frog. Either you need to make a principled stand at some relatively indistinct point, or you need to recognize that you are willing to accept your gradual enslavement.

Democratic Farce
————————

Democracy has become a farce and a deception. It’s now a sham perpetuated in order to distract, beguile, and exploit the masses by keeping them enthralled and handicapped with a seductive illusion. For the establishment elites, democracy has a utility tantamount to jingling a set of keys in front of a whining infant public. They’ve commandeered the system and its meaning, and adorned it with whatever new ideological constructs or confusing illusions that best facilitate their power.

Democracy has been gutted of its original purposes and ideals, and it now serves as a vacuous ritual employed to distract, divert, and occupy the attention and energies of the public. It’s a tool of the State and its occupants, rather than a barrier to their domination.

American democracy is essentially dead. “The people” are powerless and completely manipulated given government power, technology, and control over information and thought. “Democracy” has come to be rule by a totalitarian cabal of illuminati—exercised from behind the pomp and circumstance of an illusory procedural farce serving to enfeeble, bewilder, distract, misdirect, pacify, and delusion the masses into acquiescence.

The US political system is far beyond the point where its terms can be considered reasonable. They are perverse and vile. The system assumes itself justified in forever escalating its impositions and dictates, and yet entitled to deference and obedience. The system requires its conscripts to object using only those methods inadequate to repel its aggressions and arrogance. The system is at a breaking point where its terms are recognized as being the mad devices of a tyrant class.

The events of recent really drive home the fact that the State is beyond containment. A great portion of the public is already financially, emotionally, or psychologically indentured to it, and unprepared to recognize its immense accumulated faculty for domination and tyranny. Those who do have concern with it, either lack the capacity to effectively criticize or contend against it, or they are reluctant to put themselves and their ‘stable’ lives at risk of the potential dishevel necessary to respond.

The State now possesses everything it needs to identify, track, dominate, and destroy its detractors. It will grow ever-more uncontestable, domineering, and suffocating. It has achieved supremacy in the control of information, and the channels by which information is disseminated. It has attained a mastery of the techniques of manipulation and the art of dissembling and deception. It controls its own narrative and enjoys the authority to prosecute and destroy anyone who resists it. It’s a new class of tyranny and empire—one which has more staying power than in the past; one which is more able to survive the catastrophes it creates by universalizing itself and destroying all alternatives to itself. The modern State’s power to protract its ultimate demise and to intensify and distribute the associated oppression and misery is far greater today. The thought that it is destined to collapse on its own accord as routinely as past empires have is—I fear—too charitable.

Too Late, Too Powerful already:
——————————————-
Power of this nature over communication, information, and “reality” represents a mortal threat to the notion of democratic sovereignty.

A country can not at the same time have a comprehensive, all-powerful government–and a government which has the ability to effortlessly and clandestinely destroy its detractors–and expect to avoid tyranny.

The public is seduced by the claim that things are kept in check by democratic oversight, but the dynamics of modern power can not be tamed or restrained by democratic mechanisms. The delusion of democratic sovereignty has incubated a monster which it can not contain. Leviathan is here.

In conclusion, I must share that my friend Donna has said all along that the battle isn’t really between Republican vs. Democrat. It is We The People vs. progressives! She listens to Glenn Beck on his radio show and online TV show – The Blaze – and Glenn has tried to get people to stop believing that this political war that we are in involves R vs. D only. It has elements of that, but the progressivism that has infiltrated both parties, most universities, most media outlets, almost all of Hollywood, and especially the low-information voters in this nation had over 30 years of propaganda being spewed into ears, minds, and hearts of Americans that they no longer know the truth about our Founding, how we helped liberate many nations from Nazism, Communism, Imperialism, Totalitarianism, and Islamism, and how unlike all of those “isms,” America’s goal is to spread FREEDOM (or, it used to be – but not under Obama) across the world!

I’m really looking forward to seeing Dinesh D’Souza’s film “America – Imagine the World Without Her” this weekend or early next week!

Synopsis

Someone once observed: “America is great because she is good; if she ever ceases to be good she will cease to be great.” Today that notion of the essential goodness of America is under attack, replaced by another story in which theft and plunder are seen as the defining features of American history—from the theft of Native American and Mexican lands and the exploitation of African labor to a contemporary foreign policy said to be based on stealing oil and a capitalist system that robs people of their “fair share”. 

Our founding fathers warned us that, although the freedoms they gave us were hard fought, they could very easily be lost. America stands at a crossroads, and the way we understand our past will determine our future. America the movie takes 21st-century Americans into the future by first visiting our past. 

Gerald Molen, the Academy-award winning producer of Schindler’s List, and Dinesh D’Souza, the creator of 2016: Obama’s America, invite you on a journey of discovery that will bring you face-to-face with the heroes who built America, in the times in which they lived, bled, and sacrificed in order to build a great nation: Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and others. You’ll be there as Columbus sets foot on American soil, as bullets whiz by Washington’s head, as Douglass demands that America live up to the promises of her Founding Fathers, and as Lincoln sacrifices thousands of lives, including his own, to right a great wrong of history.

We’ll also meet their present-day critics, hear their stories, and then let you decide which America you believe in. From the team that created 2016: Obama’s America comes the story not of a man but a nation, at the crossroads of hope or disaster, whose destination will soon be decided.

Such a film would probably NEVER change the minds of progressive radicals like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.  I suspect that they are some of the “present day critics” interviewed in the film.  They both remain as “unrepentant terrorists.” Ayers even stated on Megyn Kelly’s show that he couldn’t “rule out” bombing America again. [So…where is Homeland Security on this threat? Oh…that’s right…Obama had a fundraiser at Ayers’ home when he ran for office as a Chicago state senator. Hmmm…Nothing to see here! (sarcasm  off)]

I think that this film is an important one for all Americans to see!  We are, just as it reads above:

 A nation, at the crossroads of hope or disaster, whose destination will soon be decided.

Well, if I don’t get back to blogging again before the celebration of America’s Independence Day, I’d like to wish all of you a Happy 4th of July!  God is still upholding our nation and I pray that He will continue to bless us,  protect us and lead us towards restoring our nation.

Hat tips to all links.
