Sorry about that!  😦

American Thinker: There’s No Place Like Utopia

Excerpt:

Joel Gilbert’s There’s No Place like Utopia

By Thomas Lifson

Last night saw the premier in Denver of Joel Gilbert’s There’s No Place Like Utopia, a film that gets to the heart of the progressive/communist project for America and where it is leading us. Joel uses the Wizard of Oz as an extended metaphor for the trickery and fraud that underlies the quest to perfect human nature and bring about heaven on earth that Marx promised.

The film is disarming in many ways, for it tackles great intellectual themes, usually the province of dense prose, and uses images and personality to tell the story in a highly accessible way. Readers of American Thinker will be familiar with such topics as the Cloward-Piven strategy, but in There’s No Place Like Utopia, it comes alive, leaping from the pages of The Nation magazine into cartoon characters bearing a certain resemblance to Lego figures. Political philosophy has never been handled quite this way.

It is also a road trip, guided by Joel himself, as he is swept up in a tornado, like Dorothy, and finds himself on a literal yellow brick road, which leads him to explore what happens when politics tries to create utopias. Along the way, he travels to Detroit, Newark, Miami, Washington, DC, Hollywood, Dearborn, Los Angeles Chicago’s South Side and Hyde Park, and Denver, as well as Joel’s hometown of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. We visit the house where Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn live, talk to Michelle Obama’s mother through her closed door at the house where Michelle grew up, and attempt to walk down the street where the Obamas lived in Hyde Park. We speak with Jack Cashill, Jerome Corsi, David Horowitz, and former KGB agent Konstantin Preobrazhensky, who provide background and context. And we meet all kinds of ordinary and extraordinary Americans coping with what Obama has wrought.

Joel is an engaging traveling companion, with his goatee, shirt tail frequently hanging out, and his deadpan expression as he chats with denizens of the progressive version of Utopia in various languages (with subtitles), including French, Spanish, and Arabic.  He’s the thinking man’s conservative Michael Moore when he questions a black Democrat politician on Chicago’s South Side, eventually getting himself prevented from any more filming at the community event.

As someone who uses words to tackle the very same subject matter Joel takes up, I was very impressed with the visual qualities of the film. Joel is an artist who has obviously thought long and hard about communicating to people’s subconscious  minds directly, using the dreamlike state of mind that film can produce, and employing the metaphor of the Wizard of Oz that is such a prominent part of our collective consciousness. I cannot ever forget the image of Barack Obama speaking as Oz.

4-Star US Navy Admiral SLAMS Obama While Sending DIRE Warning To ALL Of America!

February 11, 2015

This is a must see – must LISTEN TO video of a 4-Star Admiral who slams Obama and how he let the Muslim brotherhood infiltrate all of our National Security agencies across the country, including all of our intelligence agencies.

Excerpt:

Calling on all Military leaders and the new GOP controlled Congress to STAND UP to the Obama administration and UPHOLD their oaths, Admiral Lyons tells us we “have a hell of a job” ahead of us in warning that the Muslim Brotherhood has now completely infiltrated the National Security agencies across the country, including all of our intelligence agencies.

This video is a must watch and completely confirms our military being disarmed by Obama and should send a strong warning to all Christians, 2nd Amendment supporters, gun owners, freedom lovers, those who still follow the US Constitution and everyone else who loves America: time is running out.

It Begins…

November 5, 2014

First, I would like to say that it has been a long time since I felt happy about the political direction last night’s GOP victories gained for America!  To have captured the Senate, 52- (whatever) was a great victory!  Booting Harry (who has blocked most House bills from coming up for a vote) Reid out of the Senate will be the first important step in helping the middle class in this nation to be brought back up to the status that they deserve regarding job creation, pay, and hopefully the replacement of Zerocare – which has devastated millions across our beloved nation.

With that said, I want to continue to focus on what my last two posts discussed:

1. I Stand Sunday.
2. ADF: Protecting Your Ministry From Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Lawsuits

When the “HOUSTON! WE HAVE A PROBLEM” debacle occurred, it FINALLY WOKE UP Christian Pastors not only in the state of Texas, but also across this nation to take a stand and fight for their Christian and biblical values. It has been a LONG TIME COMING for this, but I’m so glad to see pastors across the nation taking action and not allowing the continued outrageous political-landscape suppression and  trampling of our God-given and Constitution-affirming rights; namely, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of association!

I received an email this morning about another pastor who previously took a stand for our freedoms back in July.  The email came from the Family Research Council (which led the I Stand Sunday rally) and I’d like to share it here at my blog today.

 

Pastor Robert Dekker of New Covenant Presbyterian Church in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware took a stand after city officials denied him a permit to hold church services on the public beach, largely due to their misinterpretation of separation of church and state. What is ironic is that there is a plaque on the beach commemorating the fact that the Rehoboth Beach community was established as a permanent Christian camp.

On July 4th, Pastor Dekker didn’t take “No” for an answer. He went forward with a “Freedom Rally” at the beach featuring music, prayer, and a sermon he preached titled: “Drawing a Line in the Sand,” based on John 8. The celebration also honored our Founding Fathers and the men and women in uniform that know firsthand that freedom is not free.

Pastor Robert Dekkers Line in the Sand July 4 Service Draws Overflow Crowd

HT for photo:  The Blaze.com

Although they normally would expect to have 20 or 30 people at a beach service, they had several hundred. “Freedom is to be cherished,” Dekker told the crowd. “We are exercising the liberties that happened 237 years ago.”

We honor the courage of Pastor Dekker for exercising his First Amendment freedom. He is indeed a Watchman Pastor. In fact, Pastor Dekker made a commitment to 1) Pray for the nation, 2) Preach the whole counsel of God, and 3) Partner with other like-minded pastors. This simple “P3” commitment by pastors to pray, preach, and partner has the potential to impact our nation in a profound way. Would you draw a line in the sand and stand with Pastor Dekker and thousands like him?

PRAY, PREACH, AND PARTNER in order to impact our nation in a profound way?

CERTAINLY!

BHO and Obots in Panic Mode?

February 10, 2014

past tense of panic

 

Pastor Emeritus Nathan Bickel has a very revealing post up at his Moral Matters.org blog!  I am sharing it here at Talk Wisdom because I think that it needs to go viral!  Therefore, if you have a blog, I encourage you to get the truth out there regarding the g()()gle  ()bots schemes to shut down sites which are disseminating important information about this criminal enterprise that surrounds the horribly evil BHO BADministration!

moralmatters.org

Can it be that aka Obama is in apparent panic mode? Is he now terrified of  the carnival barkers?
 
Excerpt:
 

Remember the one (of many occasions) when aka Barack Hussein Obama molested the presidential podium and called out those who desired “eligibility”accountability on his part? Remember how he ridiculed “them” as “carnival barkers?”

Two days ago the Birtherreport.com website was taken down. The site had been previously called,

ObamaReleaseYourRecords.com

Birtherreport.com is a website highly (and rightly so) critical of aka Obama’s actions against traditional, patriotic and Constitutional America. For the most part it allows free access for viewers to register their comments. Those who stand by aka Obama’s molestation abominations committed against America, are given space to defend their criminally scandal-ridden ID fraud.

Yet, for some reason, – and, apparently so, it wasn’t enough that aka Obama be defended by his enablers on Birtherreport.com. Instead, the website was mysteriously taken out of the Internet loop. Fortunately, the Birtherreport handlers are working on transferring their website content to another server and they can be done with the one Internet entity, that for no logical reason apparently decided to suspend their Birtherreport.com website.

Many Americans take for granted their First Amendment rights; and many of them probably don’t know aka Obama’s recent assault upon that (once) free speech right. Aka Obama signed into law, devilish legislation which severely limits that right and makes big government the capricious arbiter – Obama Secretly Signs No Free Speech Bill – mrconservative.com

Why wouldn’t scandal-ridden, criminal ID fraud aka Obama, not care to “lean on” Internet entities such as Google, to further his limitation of American First Amendment rights – especially when those “carnival barkers” are fast chasing at his felony ID fraud terrified and fleeing heels?

My comment there (in moderation as of 2/10/14 at 7:58 a.m.):

Oh my gosh!!!  When I first heard about the Birther Report hacking, I suspected that g00gle HAD to be the culprit!  I went through another type of harassment with my bl0gger Talk Wisdom blog – continual virus attacks.   Ever since I stopped signing into my former blog through g00gle and re-opened my 2008 Word Press blog back in Oct. 2013, I have had ZERO virus attacks!  I now use Start Page for all searches and never sign into Y0uTube anymore.

You are absolutely right that Mr. Zero and his Obots are terrified about the truth finally coming out about this obviously criminal BADministration and  lying usurper!  Previously, the Obotslaves just laughed off websites like the Birther Report and others.  Now, they are trying to do all they can to shut them down!  Just like Mr. Zero illegally utilized the IRS to shut down TEA Party and Conservative groups from getting tax exempt status in order to control the 2012 election.

GREAT work here Pastor Nathan!!  I must now go back and finish your post.  When I got to the point where you identified the hacker – g00gle – I had to comment.

This information needs to go viral so I am sharing this post on my blog today!

P.S.  My old blog is still up and I have access to all my former posts (without signing in) via the search button at the top of the page.  Hi Stats is still linked to it and it  reveals that 100 – 200 views are still occurring there; plus, it shows how people got there via their search criteria.  When the Soebarkah information resurfaced online, many came to that blog to read what I had previously written.  As long as I no longer sign into g00gle and just “visit” my old blog, I do not have any virus attacks.  Therefore, what those evil g00gle boogey-men tried to suppress (at my former blog – which includes a lot of Christian content) is still being read by hundreds of new visitors each week.  Praise God!

I’m so glad that we “met” online Pastor Bickel and am so blessed to be able to read your excellent work here at Moral Matters!

No matter what happens here on this earth, we know that Jesus Christ is victorious through it all!

Truth2Freedom's Blog

The mindset in postmodernism is that objective truth does not exist. But in post-truth, the person believes that objective truth exists, but they subordinate truth to their preferences, or their comfort. In other words, one doesn’t care that truth exists or what the truth is if it doesn’t line up with one’s preferences. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Faith in Jesus Christ is our response to God's elective purpose in our life. These two truths--God's initiative and man's response--co-exist throughout the Bible. The gospel is "the message of truth" because truth is its predominant characteristic. Salvation was conceived by the God of truth (Ps. 31:5); purchased by the Son, who is the truth (John 14:6); and is applied by the Spirit of truth (John 16:13). To know it is to know the truth that sets men free (John 8:32). Believers are people of the truth (John 18:37), who worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), and who obey the Word of truth (John 17:17). People have rejected, neglected, redefined, and opposed God’s truth for centuries. Some cynically deny that truth even exists or that it can be known by men (John 18:38). Others foolishly think that denying truth will somehow make it go away. Truth determines the validity of one's belief. Believing a lie doesn't make it true. Conversely, failing to believe the truth doesn't make it a lie. The gospel is true because Jesus is true, not simply because Christians believe in Him. His resurrection proved the truth of His claims and constitutes the objective basis of our faith (Rom. 1:4; 1 Pet. 1:3). Truth is our protection and strength (Eph. 6:14). Throughout history, people have tried everything imaginable to gain favor with God. Most turn to religion, but religion apart from Christ is merely a satanic counterfeit of the truth. At the heart of every false religion is the notion that man can come to God by any means he chooses--by meditating, doing good deeds, and so on. But Scripture says, "There is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). That name is Jesus Christ, and we come to Him by confessing and repenting of our sin, trusting in His atoning death on the cross, and affirming His bodily resurrection from the grave (cf. Rom. 10:9-10). There is no other way to God. False religious leaders and teachers talk much about God’s love, but not His wrath and holiness; much about how deprived of good things people are, but not about their depravity; much about God’s universal fatherhood toward everyone, but not much about his unique fatherhood toward all who believe in His Son; much about what God wants to give to us, but nothing about the necessity of obedience to Him; much about health and happiness, but nothing about holiness and sacrifice. Their message is full of gaps, the greatest of which leaves out a biblical worldview of the saving gospel and replaces it with the worldview of postmodernism with its dominant ethical system of relativism. The Bible describes mankind in the end times: “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 3:7). Spiritual answers cannot be deduced by human reason alone (1 Cor. 2:14). It’s not that spiritual truth is irrational or illogical, but that human wisdom is defective, because it’s tainted by man’s sinfulness, and unable to perceive the things of God. That is why the Bible is so important. It gives us the answers we can’t find on our own. It is God’s Word to mankind. Scripture is divinely revealed truth that fills the vacuum of spiritual ignorance in all of us. Post-truth is the word of the year for 2016 and also the philosophy of the day, According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. In a “post-truth” world, people make choices based on emotion and experience rather than objective fact. So in a post-truth world, truth is irrelevant. What exactly is a post-truth culture? It’s a culture where truth is no longer an objective reality. It has become subjective. It’s what’s true for me—my beliefs, my opinions, determine my truth. So in our post-truth culture, man determines truth. Man makes himself the ultimate authority. This starting point, which rejects God’s Word and the idea of moral absolutes, makes truth subjective. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Christianity is grounded in objective truth. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Objective truth exists because we have God’s Word. In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Thy word is truth” (John 17:17), and Paul and James describe the Bible as “the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:18). The Psalmist says, “The entirety of your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160). Jesus Himself said, “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). When Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by me” (John 14:6), He wasn’t expressing His personal belief or opinion. He was speaking the truth, a fundamental reality that doesn’t change from person to person. It doesn’t matter if our culture thinks all roads lead to God. The truth of the matter is “no one comes to the Father but by [Jesus].” This blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
