Disrespect for Property at Heart of Global Debt Crisis

In the aftermath of Greek voters’ overwhelming rejection of a deal with the European Central Bank, many options are being discussed to prevent the much discussed Grexit.

Demonstrating that nothing is absolute in politics, especially when money is concerned, approximately a month will transpire before the actual repercussions of the vote are known, as European leaders must meet and discuss what they will do.

Lost in the global politicking is any sense of respect for private property, which money embodies.

Currency is a material expression of ownership. By standardizing worth, money helps protect private property. It engenders respect for personal liberty. For, if one person owns something, their own rights are more likely to inspire considerate treatment for others.

But the prevailing societal attitudes, both by private citizens, bankers and politicians, has ignored the philosophy at the root of currency valuation.

The possibility that Greece may institute a “haircut”- a government seizure of a percentage of deposits over a certain amount- in order to finance a new currency shows a blatant disregard for money. Greek’s collective tantrum over austerity measures shows they also do not value the currency they borrowed. And the banking officials whose easy money policies have contributed to the debt crisis sweeping the world certainly also lack this basic respect.

But this attitude also transcends the eurozone. The United States has engaged in reckless control of its markets through virtually limitless quantitative easing and by forcing irresponsible lending practices upon banks. As a result, prices have necessarily skyrocketed.

And this means people’s purchasing power shrinks. Exponentially increasing government expenditures are accompanied by endless taxation, which draws down the amount of resources individuals can use for their own needs. Their purchasing power—and unlimited ability to pursue business or creative enterprises—is directly impeded in proportion to the percentage of assets appropriated.

This is an exponential cycle, for the more taxes government takes, the more programs it creates and the more revenue it needs from its citizens and from foreign banking powers.

The only end to this is a reaffirmation of money’s root. Too often it is seen as either a bogeyman for the duplicitous oligarchs of finance and politics, or merely as a means to an end, which can be manipulated without regard to consequence.

But, money is neither good nor evil. It is a tool by which property can be traded. It is the material expression of property. And, as such, it is the fountainhead of personal liberty.

It must be safeguarded, like any other liberty, against public and private institutions that would seek to appropriate it for their own power.

Greece is the inevitable end result of complacency in the face of such machinations. The scrambling to prevent the collapse is as much self-interest as empathy. The consequence-free easy money policies all Western nations engage in stand threatened by a Grexit. This means the livelihoods of more than the Greek people are at stake.

Whether the people of America will see the writing on the wall before the United States’ creditors come knocking remains to be seen.

 

Trump Has The Balls, Truth Is Dead In America

Recently Donald Trump had the nerve to say, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” What puzzles the hell out of me is that every word of that statement is true, but truth is a thing of the past in this country.

Somewhere along the line in our society truth has taken a backseat to Political Correctness. In a recent article by Ann Coulter, she listed a most wanted list out of Los Angeles. Here is the Los Angeles Police Department’s list of “Most Wanted” criminal suspects:

– Jesse Enrique Monarrez (murder),

– Cesar Augusto Nistal (child molestation),

– Jose A. Padilla (murder),

– Demecio Carlos Perez (murder),

– Ramon Reyes (robbery and murder),

– Victor Vargas (murder),

– Ruben Villa (murder)

Just as all this is going on, an incident happens that gives credibility to what Trump said. The man arrested on suspicion of murder in the shooting death of Kate Steinle on San Francisco’s Pier 14 Wednesday has a rap sheet with seven felonies, was deported five times, and in March was released from San Francisco Jail, despite immigration authorities asking that he be kept in custody. How many deaths, murders, rapes and other violent crimes have to be committed by illegal aliens before people realize that Trump is correct.

Donald Trump tweeted, “Where are the other candidates now that this tragic murder has taken place b/c of our unsafe border,” Well, where are they?  Trump also said, “What do you say to the family of Kathryn Steinle in CA who was viciously killed b/c we can’t secure our border? Stand up for US.”

I for one am 100% behind Mr. Trump; he demands a secure border, so do I. He demands we deport illegal aliens, so do I. Freya Horne, counsel for the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, said Friday that federal detention requests are not sufficient to hold someone. Under the city’s sanctuary ordinance, people in the country illegally aren’t handed over to immigration officials unless there’s a warrant for their arrest. All sanctuary cities must obey Federal law or they get nothing from the Federal government, no financial help, nothing, all Mayors of sanctuary cities should be arrested when they break federal law.

Also in Ann Coulter’s article, New Yorkers were horrified by the case of “Baby Hope,” a 4-year-old girl whose raped and murdered body turned up in an Igloo cooler off of the Henry Hudson Parkway in 1991. After a 20-year investigation, the police finally captured her rapist/murderer in 2003. It was Conrado Juarez, an illegal alien from Mexico, who disposed of the girl’s body with the help of his illegal alien sister. New York City is the nation’s media capital. But only The New York Post reported that the child rapist was a Mexican.

Where have we come to in this country, when people who are in this country illegally have more rights than its citizens do?  As far as for the rest of the Republican candidates, they don’t have half the balls that Donald Trump has.

Happy Birthday America? – One year later!

Americans’ love affair with hating those they don’t agree has gotten worse. Unemployment is at the lowest point it seems in 16 years? Sure, but have we calculated the unprecedented number of people who have left the workforce (92+ million) and the fact that a majority of the jobs created were part-time? And what about the fact that 2 months ago nearly every new job went to immigrants? Our enemies laugh at us and our allies fear us. They fear we won’t be there for them. Who can blame them? We haven’t been there for many of them over the last few years. We have fewer allies in the Middle East than we did under both Bush’s. Even Jimmy Carter recently stated that he has never known of a time when we were held in such low esteem. I believe the light is a little dimmer today!

A year ago I wrote about my concern for America…  I was concerned then and am even more so now. What follows is a reprint of that reflective look on America and a look forward to our future. Sadly, it’s just as fitting one year later. Let’s hope next year things are on the upswing.

***********************************

Happy Birthday America?

You know that awkward moment when you go to your wife’s, aunt Mabel’s, second cousin’s 96th birthday party? She is in a wheelchair, doesn’t really know who is in the room with her, and has to be fed and cleaned by others. Everyone remembers when she was a vibrant, smart, and loving person, not always nice, but always fair. She helped whenever she could. You don’t know whether to wish her “Happy Birthday with many more to come” or “God’s speed” to be in the presence of the Almighty, pain-free and without earthly shackles.

I felt that way this past week. How was I going to wish America a Happy Birthday when I wasn’t really sure if the America we all know and love would exist as that “shining city on the hill” next year or in years to come?

America’s birthday (4th of July), according to John Quincy Adams, and Christmas (birth of Christ) were intrinsically connected. He went on to imply that on the 4th the Founders simply took the precepts of Christ and incorporated those principles into civil government.

The Founders understood that for America to survive it had to have a solid code by which it functioned and existed. It had to have a moral compass and guide. But who’s? And what kind?

The French? No, that was a monarchy and tyranny. The Spanish? More of the same. The Brits? That’s what they were running away from. The Germans? Who?

They wanted freedom for man. None of these provided that. The ultimate power was in a King, a man. That’s not what they wanted. They wanted freedom for the citizenry to choose their leaders, their way of life, their religion, to start or not start a business, to celebrate or not celebrate Christmas or any other holiday! Complete freedom!

The America my grandparents came to live in, the one my mom came to live in, the one I saw those many immigrants that came to the Italian North End of Boston to work and start their own business in is no longer here. Now for clarity, many of the immigrants I have spoken with over the last year say America is still much better than where they came from, but that even they have seen freedoms erode since arriving.

We no longer have 3 branches of government. We have one. The chief and grand supreme dictator, Barrack Obama. His pen and his phone will do all the work. His “Capos” will carry out his commands and he will run America the way he sees fit. It won’t matter what his experts say. It won’t matter what history has seen. It won’t even matter if the facts and figures show him to be wrong. He will continue do it his way….

Time to Return America to God

 

This nation has fallen far because Godless government “officials” and the minions of satan have removed the Hand of God from the reins and have told Him He is no longer welcome Eagle- America Deserves Betterin the public forum. They have done this while Christians sat back not wanting to “offend” those who get offended any time they don’t get their way unopposed, like a 2 year old throwing a fit when told “NO”!! It is time for Christian citizens to reverse this trend and invite God back into the driver seat of our nation. With this in mind I wrote these three articles: (http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2015/07/declaration-of-independence-2015/ ) (http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2015/06/the-new-world-order-socialist-party-controls-america/) (http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2015/07/the-supreme-court-what-constitution-what-god/). This nation was not established as a theocracy but WAS established as a representative republic FOUNDED on biblical principles. George Washington stated that the Constitution would only work for a good and moral people. All of our major laws can be linked directly to the Ten Commandments given to Moses on Mt. Sinai.

Today the U S A is a dictatorial oligarchy ruled by people who ignore the Constitution and the Word of God, the Holy Bible. Too many politicians, judges, and citizens have decided that they can dismiss or ignore any part of either that does not justify their personal Constitutionagendas, agendas that are sinful or evil, and for some of them tyrannical. Laws and customs that require honesty and morality are constantly under attack and many so-called Christians either join in the attacks or cower in fear of political correctness so they won’t be ridiculed and called bigots, racists, or intolerant. The inclusive, diverse, tolerant fools are very selective in their pronounced “virtues”, excluding any Godliness from their “enlightened” state!!!!!

When the arrogant fools who rule our nation openly support the satanic cult of islam, and Holy biblesupport homosexuality and abortion as inherent citizen rights and obligations that society must support under the Constitution God cannot and will not bless us as a nation. The only way to return the United States of America to being the “shining city on a hill” it was formed as is to rid ourselves of murder and perversion as national policy and we can only do that by deposing politicians and judges who make those things the predominant policies of the nation, hence my last article: http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2015/07/declaration-of-independence-2015/. That item was not written now nor published on July 4th by accident. The content and timing was a work of God to inspire and motivate modern day patriots to take up the whole armor of God and to do battle to preserve His creation of this nation, the last and best bastion of freedom on the planet.

We the People are being bullied by a minority who spit in the face of God and do so in our names, bringing judgment on all of us. I pray regularly for forgiveness that I have noEagle Fighting for Freedomt done more in the past to stop this and ask for the strength to stop it now. I suffered a massive stroke August 19, 2014 and cannot take to the streets to protest as right now walking is very difficult and my left arm is still unusable. God is doing a lot of healing but it is a long slow process. There are many who are able to take actions that others of us cannot. The nation and future generations need all of us to step up as others have in times past. Our founders gave their lives and fortunes for liberty. What can you give and what are you willing to do for the future of your country? Some can actively protest, some cannot. Some can finance those who can protest but don’t have the finances to travel to various locations. Others have the organizing skills to put things together. I can’t really travel due to financial AND physical limitations but can write and encourage others. To this end, “with a firm reliance on divine providence” I pledge my life, my God given skills, and my sacred honor, all that I have to offer.

If you want to preserve freedom for yourself, your children, and your grandchildren I urge Bible, flag, guns, Our rightsyou to get busy doing what you can, physically, financially, organizationally, or whatever you can do to help. Christians are God’s agents on earth and it is the duty of all of us to act now to restore our faith to the seats of power or see generations live under Godless tyranny. Acting doesn’t necessarily mean you have to take up arms and go to war, but sitting quietly hoping evil won’t bite you is no longer an option. Will you stand for God when you are needed or will you deny His kingdom on earth and hope He won’t deny you in Heaven? Now is the time for Christians to honor God with their actions to show they are indeed His people. Saddle up patriots, the time to act is now. Barak Obama and his satanic minions have declared war on the Christian faith and its followers. They won’t stop until they have eradicated all vestiges of Christianity and will succeed unless we step up and follow God in the battle against evil. This is a battle against evil and satan, a battle against principalities and powers the bible states, and one that we must fight if we are to preserve what God established in the late 1700s. God will bring victory but He expects us to help. The Israelites defeated many much stronger enemies in biblical times. God was with them but they couldn’t sit in their tents waiting for God to do it all and neither can we. We must honor God in what we do and how we do it but we MUST do it. I honor and acknowledge God in what I write as He is the one who allows me the privilege of writing in His name, inspiring me and providing the words I merely transcribe for Him.

So, what will it be? Do we stand up for God and the Christian faith or do we cower in fear of ridicule from the self-proclaimed “enlightened ones”? I have never been one to cower Afraid to speak against tyrannyand won’t be silent out of fear now for God is my shepherd, I shall not want. Islam teaches that hating and murdering others is the way to their “heaven” (really Hell) but Jesus Christ taught that belief in Him as the Son of God crucified for the forgiveness of our sins and risen from the dead for our salvation is the way to Heaven. and loving others (though not necessarily their actions) is important. We are not expected by Jesus to applaud homosexuals for their behavior but we aren’t to kill them either, which we don’t do!!!!! Refusing to accept what God calls sin is not hate in spite of what liberals say. We MUST do our part and do it now!!!!!

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Rapes Of Illegal Immigrants At Eighty Percent And No One Cares? Why Not?

Recently the Huffington Post published an article estimating that eighty percent of the unprecedented inundation of illegal female immigrants who crossed our southern border were raped on the way to freedom in America.  It also seems likely that up to twenty percent of the Huffington figure were enslaved and are continuing to be held as prostitutes and raped multiple times daily by their captors, and a further five to ten percent of this number were murdered as they opposed the attacks.  And these unspeakable violations happened because Barack Obama, in his insistence on “fundamentally transforming America”, planned and executed the draw of people from Mexico and Central America, which planning and execution cannot be denied because it was widely reported over the last two years that ads requesting bids for transportation and housing were placed by the Obama administration well in advance of the arrival of these illegals, for the precise number of individuals who arrived and housed near our southern border, and were then mysteriously whisked away and hidden at sites still unknown.

This is the same Obama who John Boehner and Mitch McConnell bent over backwards (or was it forwards) to further his accomplishments and his legacy of destroying America by supporting the recent votes on the TPA and TAA trade agreements that Obama couldn’t even get his own Democrats to vote for (and this traitorous activity is why we voted the Republicans into the majority in congress?).  And given that the flow of immigrants were moved to unknown sites so quickly, and that no one was allowed to interview or photograph them at the receiving camps, should increase suspicion that these incidents actually happened.

Why isn’t the United Nations investigating these horrible allegations of the mistreatment of women illegally traveling to the United States (or is the lie of Global Warming too pressing an issue to divert attention from imaginary environmental events to real events and real suffering of real people), and why aren’t our Republican Senators and Representatives investigating these events that appear to threaten and undermine the constant Democrat charge of a fictitious Republican “War On Women” and reverse the idiotic charge right back into the faces of liberal/progressives and Obama?

Because Obama is the center of evil in the world today with his weakening of the U.S. military when ISIS is killing all over the world at a dizzying rate, and with Obama undermining the rule of law in America and his total disrespect for the constitution, one wonders at the crashing, deafening silence on these tragic issues as they relate to the Obama Administration’s opponents here at home.  America’s Republican officials should hang their heads in shame at their continued silence on this issue, and tragically their tongues are silent because they don’t want to appear to be critical of Obama for fear that independent voters would not like them and would then vote for Democrats.  May God help this misguided, crippled nation!

A New Declaration of Independence for 2015

Declaration

In light of the similarity between the actions of King George III and the current federal government a reissuance of the Declaration of Independence is not only appropriate but very necessary. We the people have suffered long beyond “while evils are sufferable” and have tried diligently to persuade our elected “representatives” to listen to our demands that they adhere to the Constitution but they continually refuse to obey their employers, We the People. Now even the “supreme court” ignores our founding document to impose their personal will on citizens. Bureaucrats unlawfully impose regulations on every aspect of liberty. The despotism at the federal level has reached well beyond acceptance and as a result the federal government must be abolished.

Barack Obama, Congress, and the courts have repeatedly refused to abide by the Constitution, imposing regulations that violate the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 10th Amendments. The executive branch under Obama has violated the 1st Amendment by threatening, and taking, legal action against any Christian organization and person that refuses to accept homosexuality as normal human behavior. They have violated the 2ndConstitution 2 Amendment by implementing gun control regulations, such as registration and very subjective background checks that they have no legal right to implement. They have also violated the restrictions placed on the federal government in the enumerated powers clause.   Courts have violated the 4th Amendment by upholding law enforcement seizing money and assets without a citizen being charged with or even suspected of a crime. Barack Obama is using tax dollars to support islamic groups that have declared war on our nation, has ignored immigration rules to allow illegal alien invaders free entry into our land and is providing said invaders with welfare, social security, and Medicare benefits to the detriment of citizens who have paid into those programs for years. Obama refuses to acknowledge the threat of islam and calls honorably discharged veterans and other citizens potential domestic terrorists because they demand that he and congress abide by the Constitution. Obama also issues executive orders by the dozens, orders that assume powers not bequeathed to the office, including orders that by-pass the duties of Congress. http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/243179-obama-asserts-Bible, flag, guns, Our rightspower-over-small-waterways). He has also issued executive orders that subvert the rights guaranteed the 2nd Amendment rights of citizens, another blatant act of treason.

Obama sends soldiers to war under rules of engagement that make victory impossible and puts those soldiers in unnecessary danger of death or serious injury while giving the enemy aid in the form of money, arms, and propaganda. These are serious offenses that constitute treason against the nation he is supposed to serve as chief executive and commander in chief. The actions of Barak Obama are inexcusable and detrimental to the security and well-being of citizens and the nation as a whole, and are just cause for his removal from office yet Congress refuses to do their duty under the Constitution to put a stop to the treasonous actions of a runaway dictator. Obama has stated that he can rule with his pen and phone, without the consent of Congress or We the People.

The supreme court has violated the 9th and 10th Amendments by telling states they cannot follow state Constitutions, and the biblical tenets upon which this nation was Holy biblefounded, that outline marriage status; and have negated the prosecutions of illegal alien invaders that violate immigration laws. Congress and the current regime refuse to rein in these usurpations of judicial conduct, violations of their oaths of office.

Obamacare penalties, declared legitimate taxes by the supreme court, originated in the Senate, a clear violation of section 7 of the Constitution that says all tax laws shall be initiated in the House of Representatives. Obamacare was passed in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve, using reconciliation, a tactic which is not appropriate in that case. Barack Obama, with the acquiescence of Congress, has Il Duce Obamaundermined the sovereignty of this nation by bowing to the united nations and countries who seek to dominate our nation. Obama and Congress seek to unlawfully disarm American citizens by agreeing to abide by united nations edicts that deny 2nd Amendment rights to American citizens based on following international edicts of tyranny. These actions clearly violate their oath of office and their responsibilities under the Constitution. Obama has divided the nation based on race and has sought to disarm the populace by illegally providing automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels and using said weapons sales to attempt to subvert the 2nd Amendment rights of American citizens, God given rights guaranteed by our founders in the Constitution. The supreme court has recently said states cannot decide who may or may not be married, clearly not their prerogative under the Constitution based on the enumerated powers listed.

Based on the grievances listed, and more issues not listed, it is time to throw off the bonds of tyranny and establish a new nation based on the original Constitution with newly Eagle Changing Things I Cannotg Acceptelected representatives, term limits established, criminal penalties for those who violate the oath of office, and all current elected and appointed officials being forever banned from holding any position in the new federal government. I also submit that judges should be elected by the people instead of appointed by politicians according to political agendas as is currently the case, and should also be subject to term limits and penalties for abusing or ignoring their oath of office. Some think the answer is an Article V convention but those who ignore what we have now will also ignore the results of an Article V convention and likely abolish what we have now.

This current tyranny did not start with Obama. In 2001 a Republican controlled Congress Eagle-We Will Not Complypassed the misnamed “Patriot Act” and it was signed by fellow Republican George W. Bush so this is not a partisan issue against Barak Obama and Democrats. The “Patriot Act” essentially abolished “Posse Commitatus” as a part of the U S Constitution. What we have is an ongoing bi-partisan act of tyranny on the part of both Democrats and Republicans allied against the ideals of the founding fathers and the citizens of this nation to rule over us as they see fit.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Has America Lost Its Collective Mind?

gay-marriage-ruling-cartoon-mckeeWith the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage last week, the fundamental building block of society is no longer affirmed by the rule of law. Rather, by judicial fiat, the legal doors have been thrown open for legitimization of literally any possible kind of relationship as viable and recognizable by the state.

Dr. Patrick Fagan, a sociologist and psychologist has said, “The family is the fundamental building block of society and predates the state and even the societies it builds… At the heart of the family is the mother and father who bring their children into existence.” This is a self-evident truth, regardless of who said it, and anthropologists, biologists, sociologists, politicians, and religious leaders have reiterated that very sentiment. The family is the building block of society and civilization, and the cornerstone to that foundation, or the genesis of it, is a mother and a father.

Jefferson-judgesAs evidence that the nation has collectively lost its mind, the highest court in the land has affirmed that “Adam and Steve” are as viable in creating the social building blocks of society as Adam and Eve were. But such convolution is unavoidable in a society where words no longer have literal meaning, but only interpretive based on contemporary perceptions of “rights” and state sanctioned privileges.

As logically bizarre as it is, the tenets of the 14th Amendment were used as justification. The Amendment was adopted following the Civil War to ensure that all citizens, regardless of color, were assured “equal protection of the laws.” The tenet was crucial to resolving issues related to race, and logically tenable. After all, no one has the ability to choose their race, their skin color, or other congenital features determined genetically. Nor can they arbitrarily choose their sex, which is why it’s also logically tenable for application of the Amendment in cases related to sexual discrimination.

Gay-Marriage-QuestionBut now, for the first time, “equal protection of the laws” is applied based on behavior and choice. For even if there are predilections, or a predisposition, to behave in a certain way, it is still ultimately a matter of choice whether each person acts on those inclinations. And with this caveat, application of the equal protection clause can now legally, albeit illogically, applied to anything that is behaviorally based, or has an element of choice to it. Since the “right” to “marry” no longer has any legitimacy as an anthropological, biological, or social convention, as etymologically it has held for eons, everything and anything is game.

All “marriage” restrictions can now be revisited, reinterpreted, and re-adjudicated from the bench. Marriage will continue to be redefined since it is no longer based on natural law. There is no viable logical limitation that can be applied to prevent further morphing of the term. It will of necessity evolve to include everyone who loves anyone, or anything. The man who wanted to marry his horse a few years ago, can no longer be logically proscribed, and the trio from Montana who said this week they want to be married, are all viable. And all other barriers and restrictions will necessarily fall as well since the logic and the fundamental raison d’être behind marriage is now discarded in the dustbin of history.

Stalin-America-CollapseThe political leap from equal treatment of individuals under the law, to equal treatment of behavior and relationships under the law, is one of quantum proportions that defies logic.

And since equal protection now can be applied to behavior and choice, what’s to prevent the next fad group averring their presumed “constitutional rights,” from requiring egalitarian application of the rule to income, aptitude tests, performance reviews, school exams, or any other “right” that some hair brained group claims they’re entitled to “equality under the law?” Pandora’s legal box of horrors has now been thrown open!

No wonder the most logical and constitutionally sound justice on the court, Justice Antonin Scalia, ripped the majority opinion as mercilessly as he did. He called it a “judicial Putsch” that poses a “threat to American democracy.” He added that a “system of government that makes the People subordinate to a committee of nine unelected lawyers does not deserve to be called a democracy.” He said the Court’s “naked judicial claim to legislative—indeed, super-legislative—power bulldozed the right of the People to self-government.”

We The PeopleIn a freaky, unconventional way, America has advanced in its claim to being the “land of the free.” We are now free from logic, common sense, and the literal rule of law. Welcome to the new Wild West where laws can mean what they don’t literally say; the rights of the people as asserted by initiative and referendum, are voided by five politicians in robes, posing as “judges” of the Constitution; and natural law, laws of biology and sociology, as well as language etymology, are all trash-canned to allow 1.5-2.5% of the population to have their lifestyle validated and affirmed.

In light of current judicial trends, no wonder Jefferson referred to the judicial branch as “the despotic branch.” Abraham Lincoln aptly described our current state, “If the policy of the Government upon vital questions…is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers.” Interestingly, he may have also provided the solution. “The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it.”

The “supreme court”!!!! What Constitution????? What God?????

 

Constitution 2Once again we see the Constitution rendered irrelevant. This time by five people who view themselves and their opinions as superior to even the Word of God, and ignore the precepts that this nation was founded upon. Five arrogant “what I think is above all else in the universe” lawyers have decided that they can determine what states can or cannot do in spite of the fact that the Constitution does not give them that right. This nation is no longer a representative republic. It is now a dictatorship ruled by people who don’t even acknowledge God as being above themselves. They expect Christians to abandon our beliefs andBible n Flag Picture faith to adhere to their pronouncements of what should be right and wrong. The Holy Bible says a man and woman should become one flesh to populate the earth. God told Adam and Eve to take dominion over the earth and to “go forth and multiply”. The Bible also calls homosexuality an “abomination before God” and says that a man should not lay with a man as he would a woman. Those who do so will not enter Heaven.

No religion in the world, that I know of, accepts homosexuality as normal. Even the satanic cult they call Islam rejects homosexuality, and kills those who participate in homosexual activity. I guess the “supreme court” is going to force Islam to marry homosexuals! I would dare to say imams will be exempt as the entire focus of the homo Gestapo is in destroying the right of Christians to adhere to their faith. I have not heard of a single attempt to intimidate a moslem business into supporting homosexuality but it happens to Christian businesses almost daily. I wonder if the fact that Christians don’t kill them but moslems do is a factor.

Government people, elected or appointed, think of themselves as THE ultimate authority over everything. Their arrogance will be their downfall but, sadly, will take this nation down with them, including innocent people who believe in God and wish to follow His way. Christians are targeted in the USA today the way Jews were in Nazi Germany. It hasn’t come to the point of being murdered, yet, but that will happen. At first Hitler denigrated the Jews, blaming them for all of the bad economic problems that hitler4came as a result of World War I. next came the vandalism of their homes and businesses. Then came rounding them up and killing them. Today Christians are being denigrated by the government and their lackeys in the media. We are called Nazi, homophobic, bigots, closed minded, and worse because we refuse to accept what God calls sin. I didn’t determine what God’s Word says but I will follow it and suffer the recrimination and persecution it will mean in this life to gain eternal life in Paradise. The ruling on same sex marriage will ramp up the pressure to conform or be further attacked, legally at first and then physically. Those whoIl Duce Obama will dismiss this are either delusional or trying to lull Christians into passively trodding to the FEMA extermination camps thinking they will be cared for by the government as were the Jews of the 1930s.

Those who don’t comply will find taxes used against them, then find their homes and possessions confiscated, then be hunted down like rabid animals targeted for death. Don’t say it won’t happen because that is what was said when Hitler first took power but he did it. Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it won’t happen. why do you think so many politicians and leftist bureaucrats and media want people disarmed? in the 20th century 56 million people were first disarmed then murdered by their governments. Despotism isn’t gone because Hitler and Stalin are dead. There are plenty just like them in Washington D C (De Cesspool) today. They are hard at work demonizing Christian patriots, especially gun owning ones!

Once again we see the Constitution rendered irrelevant. This time by five people who view themselves and their opinions as superior to even the Word of God, and ignore the precepts that this nation was founded upon. Five arrogant “what I think is above all else in the universe” lawyers have decided that they can determine what states can or cannot do in spite of the fact that the Constitution does not give them that right. This nation is no longer a representative republic. It is now a dictatorship ruled by people who don’t even acknowledge God as being above themselves. They expect Christians to abandon our beliefs and faith to adhere to their pronouncements of what should be right and wrong. The Holy Bible says a man and woman should become one flesh to populate the earth. God told Adam and Eve to take dominion over the earth and to “go forth and multiply”. The Bible also calls homosexuality an “abomination before God” and says that a man should not lay with a man as he would a woman. Those who do so will not enter Heaven.

No religion in the world, that I know of, accepts homosexuality as normal. Even the satanic cult they call Islam rejects homosexuality, and kills those who participate in homosexual activity. I guess the “supreme court” is going to force Islam to marry homosexuals! I would dare to say imams will be exempt as the entire focus of the homo Gestapo is in destroying the right of Christians to adhere to their faith. I have not heard of a single attempt to intimidate a moslem business into supporting homosexuality but it happens to Christian businesses almost daily. I wonder if the fact that Christians don’t kill them but moslems do is a factor.

Government people, elected or appointed, think of themselves as THE ultimate authority over everything. Their arrogance will be their downfall but, sadly, will take this nation down with them, including innocent people who believe in God and wish to follow His way. Christians are targeted in the USA today the way Jews were in Nazi Germany. It hasn’t come to the point of being murdered, yet, but that will happen. At first Hitler denigrated the Jews, blaming them for all of the bad economic problems that came as a result of World War I. next came the vandalism of their homes and businesses. Then came rounding them up and killing them. Today Christians are being denigrated by the government and their lackeys in the media. We are called Nazi, homophobic, bigots, closed minded, and worse because we refuse to accept what God calls sin. I didn’t determine what God’s Word says but I will follow it and suffer the recrimination and persecution it will mean in this life to gain eternal life in Paradise. The ruling on same sex marriage will ramp up the pressure to conform or be further attacked, legally at first and then physically. Those who will dismiss this are either delusional or trying to lull Christians into passively trodding to the FEMA extermination camps thinking they will be cared for by the government as were the Jews of the 1930s.

Those who don’t comply will find taxes used against them, then find their homes and possessions confiscated, then be hunted down like rabid animals targeted for death. Don’t say it won’t happen because that is what was said when Hitler first took power but he did it. Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it won’t happen. why do you think so many politicians and leftist bureaucrats and media want people disarmed? in the 20th century 56 million people were first disarmed then murdered by their governments. Despotism isn’t gone because Hitler and Stalin are dead. There are plenty just like them in Washington D C (De Cesspool) today. They are hard at work demonizing Christian patriots, especially gun owning ones! When 5 judges can strip We the People of our right to follow God’s commandments they can strip us of the rest of our God given rights also!

Everything Hitler did to the Jews was perfectly legal under German laws the puppet parliament passed and today we see the same type of thing taking place in the USA.

Just For The Record, I’m Liking “The Donald”

It’s too early to predict which of the many Republican candidates will survive the campaigning task that’s ahead of them, and one never knows which candidates one will like after some extended exposure, but too many pundits have asked how the public feels about Trump at this point considering the bad press he’s gotten, so with full humility, and speaking only as one of the great unwashed masses out here in fly-over country, I want to share with the world that Donald Trump is looking good to me at this point.  He takes it to the liberals and tells them exactly what he thinks of any situation that arises, and so far his remarks have been on-the-mark and exactly what needs to be said to the party of Obama and the Clintons.  And probably the most favorable things I’ve seen are that he won’t wilt when the liberals come down hard on him, and political correctness is not something he seems to be familiar with.

There are many excellent candidates on the Republican roster this time around (one fears possibly too many to keep track of) but the attacks on Trump by the press, NBC, New York City’s mayor, Macy’s, Univision and even by some conservatives who worry too much about being liked, show how much they fear a conservative who will lash out at America’s political enemies and show no fear under fire.  We probably all wish that Sarah Palin had been able to withstand the attacks she sustained a few years back because she was an excellent candidate, attacks that proved how afraid of her the libs are.  But now we have a plain-speaking candidate in Trump and I find it refreshing and encouraging. Plus, Trump is fun to watch.  He’s bigger than life, and richer, too, and his bombastic approach is constantly entertaining. I hope he sticks around for a while.

Two Attempts to Identify Why Liberals Are So Wrong And So Evil

Liberals Are Unable To Keep Their Own Arguments Straight:

When Liberals are trying to prove that there is no God, they argue that humans are descendants of tadpoles and monkeys and are solely the product of “evolution”.  Yet when liberals want to stop human progress by halting a building or irrigation project they find a plant, an animal or a fish and claim that these innocent creatures are threatened with extinction by the proposed work, denying the larger principle that in nature, extinction of one species or another happens all the time, it’s “natural” and has always occurred in “nature”, because creatures who are unable to adapt to their environment must die so that others who are able to adapt can flourish and evolve.

So in the liberal attempt to protect the insignificant Snail Darter fish in California, big-government liberals deny water to farms in the Central Valley, causing the farms to go dry, causing food prices to escalate, workers to lose their jobs, and causing the owners to lose their crops, and then these fool, lying liberals have the nerve to assert that this drought (that they themselves caused by imposing draconian environmental regulations to help a fish that is unequipped to survive on its own) should be blamed on global warming or climate change, or whatever they are calling this convenient and political falsehood at present.  These people are insane as well as destructive by choosing to protect a fish that is unable to survive as nature created and evolved it, over the welfare and benefit of their fellow humans, who have been quite successful at evolving so far, thank you.

Liberals Threaten Themselves And The Nation By Being Unable To Identify Their Real Enemies:

Among the most confusing patterns of behavior seen in liberals is their insistence that America’s real foreign enemies (Russia, Iran, North Korea, Cuba) are to be tolerated, even embraced, as Obama is currently hugging Castro’s Cuba and the favorable way he’s dealing with the murderous Iranians in his ridiculous nuclear-arms development talks, but it is instead American Republicans and conservatives who liberals believe are the threat to democracy and liberty, and that conservatives alone are the real terrorists threatening our nation and its future.

These fool people ignore the fact that conservatives want desperately to preserve and follow the Constitution in order to assure the continuation of liberty and prosperity in America, and liberals seem to be enamored of any foreign dictator’s total rule over his miserable subjects and seem to be oddly attracted by that dictator’s evil intent toward Americans and our society.

It would appear that liberals are jealous of the total ability to rule and dictate on the part of the Stalins, Castros and Hitlers of the world, and that they themselves wish the ability to totally rule in America, and they resent the opposition to such rule offered by conservatives and Republicans because of the very constitution conservatives want to protect.

Author Lyle Rossiter claims convincingly that liberals must be insane for wanting to deny a free and prosperous people the ability to obtain their own health care and otherwise run their own independent lives, and for knowingly bankrupting and destroying our wealthy, free nation. I think Mr. Rossiter is correct.

 

The Modern Zenger Trial: Can Truth Be Discriminatory?

The origins of freedom of the press in America can really be traced back to 1735 and the trial of John Peter Zenger.

Zenger, the editor of a small newspaper in colonial New York, regularly printing material derogatorily portraying royal governor William Crosby. For the crime of printing negative comments grounded in fact, Zenger was put on trial for treason.

Central to the trial was the question of whether the truth could be libelous. Under the standing law, the answer was, yes. But Zenger, with the help of his lawyer Andrew Hamilton, was acquitted, thus setting a precedent for press freedom that would later be enshrined in the Bill of Rights.

Today, this case is significant not only as a hallmark for civil liberties, but because its precedent is being quickly eroded by evolving legal and cultural standards.

The question no longer revolves around whether the truth is libelous, but whether it is discriminatory. In the new political lexicon, discrimination is no longer a gauge for assessing the good, bad and mediocre, but a synonym for hatred and bigotry.

Obviously, the truth is discriminatory. It is a rejection of everything besides the basic laws of nature. But the empiricism of reality has become less important than the feelings and dignity of certain groups of people. This was behind the rationale of the Supreme Court majority in their Obergefell ruling. It is what drives the social justice agenda, with all its obsequious grovelling before “microaggressions” and “political correctness.”

Those who still cling to objective reality will recognize the same fascistic driving force behind this as was in the despotism of Crosby and his royal masters. Now, just as then, the adherents to an ideology that cannot survive on its own merits, must rely on force to bring others around to their way of thinking.

Less than a week after the nation-wide legalization of same sex marriage, the ACLU has already withdrawn its support of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, stating that it is too often used by Christians as a tool for discrimination. The pre-Obergefell record is one where Christian business owners being successfully sued for refusing services that directly contradict their beliefs, where gay hotel owners faced the threat of being boycotted for hosting an evangelical presidential candidate. Tt is not irrational to indulge in a bit of prognostication and foresee a future where merely to profess belief in certain values will make individuals targets, a la Zenger.

In his defense, Hamilton railed against holding speech hostage to the petty egos of governing officials:

But when a ruler of a people brings his personal failing, but much more his vices, into his administration, and the people find themselves affected by them either in their liberties or properties, that will alter the case mightily; and all the things that are said in favor of rulers and dignitaries, and upon the side of power, will not be able to stop the people’s mouths when they feel themselves oppressed.

Lest he too be accused of treason, he was forced to explain that by this he meant no criticism of the king.

Though it is not so much personal vices as ill-conceived notions of tolerance and dignity that stand a threat to the people, this is a reaction that is far too similar to what conservatives and Christians face for living their beliefs in the politically correct America of 2015.

History seems to be repeating itself, changing slightly of course to fit the exigent issues of the day. The only question is, will modern day Zengers stand up against the cultural gatekeepers?

Chris Christie Thinks Republicans Need To Compromise With Democrats. Let’s Look At The Truth Of The Matter.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie today announced that he is a candidate for president on the Republican ticket, and one of his first comments about how to win the election and then govern the nation was to encourage Republicans to compromise with Democrats and liberals.  Evidently Mr. Christie has not been paying attention to recent current events and has missed the following examples of what trying to work with liberals gets us:

Did the Dems compromise with Republicans when they shoved Obamacare down our throats?

Did Obama’s NLRB compromise with Boeing on moving their manufacturing plant from Seattle to Charleston?

Did liberals compromise with caterers who didn’t want to participate in homosexual weddings?

Have Democrats stopped using the lie of the Republican war on women?

Do liberals allow warming deniers to present facts contrary to the lie they’ve been telling since the 1970s?

Has Obama compromised with his military advisors on his very restrictive rules of engagement for fighting in Afghanistan?

Did Obama compromise with the Little Sisters of the Poor in their objection to a government requirement to provide abortions?

Did the members of the Supreme Court cast aside their liberalism and politics and vote on whether Obamacare was constitutional or not?

Has New York Mayor DeBlasio compromised with the New York police department and stopped identifying them as criminals and racists for doing their jobs?

Did liberals compromise when the FCC took control of the internet?

Liberals never compromise, they just push to the win, and then start planning the next aspect of American liberty and prosperity they will take over and destroy.  Conservatives must sincerely try to win on their values and principles and stop sheepishly asking Democrats for permission to make necessary changes, and then crumble and run and hide when they are called racists, sexists and homophobes.

Obama Re-Writes The Allegory Of The Cave

In Plato’s story The Allegory of the Cave he poses some questions about reality: Is there a reality at all; how can it be determined; are the things we see just an illusion; how can we determine the real from the false?

Barack Obama, in his self-proclaimed “fundamental transformation of America” has with full intent caused those people who are just stumbling through life to doubt the reality, goodness and prosperity of America. Those who are dependent on government sustenance and prefer the limited and constrained life-style that comes with it believe that government should be the controller of our money and our lives, not “We The People” determining our own destinies.

Obama has cast doubt on over 200 years of American leadership while moving our nation to a new normal that is not going to be pretty for America. This transformation will likely be catastrophic for the world if it’s allowed to continue.

Obama, who represents falsehoods and social engineering, is the essence of evil in the world today.

At some point, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell should stop kissing his butt and show some opposition to the sheer destruction that Obama represents.

 

John Roberts Falls Victim to the Slippery Slope

When public officials want to gift themselves new powers, they usually justify their expansive actions with their favorite platitude, “for the greater good.”

Conservatives, in their turn, respond with the proverbial warning of the slippery slope.

The problem, of course, is the dynamism of American politics means the powers one party invests themselves with are then available for the next majority, which seizes the precedent and continues to expand federal jurisdiction. In this way, central power burgeons exponentially.

Perhaps the best modern example of this phenomenon is the Patriot Act, passed in the wake of 9/11 to protect the nation’s security. The always grasping hands of federal power destroyed the restraints placed on the security state by the original legislation and created bulk data collection, disturbing not only in its total disregard for civil liberties, but also in its parallelism to George Orwell’s omniscient Big Brother.

This sort of slow creep usually happens primarily through regulation. But in a stunning display of hypocrisy demonstrated by subsequent opinions issued last week, Chief Justice John Roberts demonstrated that this can happen in any part of the government.

Roberts, in writing the majority opinion in King v. Burwell, hypothesized on the intent of the legislature and President Obama in passing the Affordable Care Act and then allowed his decision to be influenced by this outcome:

“A fair reading of legislation demands a fair understanding of the legislative plan. Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them.”

He gave the Court transcendent powers of interpretation. This was not a case of statutory or Constitutional interpretation; it was a case of assessing the intent of politicians and yielding to them.

Then, in his minority opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges, Roberts denounced the powers which had been integral to his rationale of only a day before:

“But this Court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be.”

Like other legislators who grant themselves powers and then later have them used against them by their political opponents, Roberts is a victim of his own hubris. There is some small sense of justice that the consequences of his unconstitutional actions came back to haunt him so quickly. Unfortunately, it does nothing for the irreparable damage done to the original intent of the Constitution.

Keep the Crazy Away from Sharp Objects & Sharp Comments

Turning in gunsI’m strongly in favor of keeping the mentally ill away from firearms and I’m coming around to approving any policy that keeps crazy ‘journalists’ away from a keyboard, too. Case in point is Salon.com writer Arthur Chu. His rant titled “It’s not about mental illness: The big lie that always follows mass shootings by white males” makes Alex Jones sound like Dr. Phil.

Chu and Solon appear to be angry because most of America has a handy rule of thumb for predicting mental illness: Any white loser that goes into a prayer meeting at a black church and indiscriminately shoots nine people in the belief the killings will spark a race war — is nuts.

Besides, everyone knows if you want to create widespread civil unrest it requires a white cop to shoot a black suspect in self–defense while the suspect resists arrest.

Chu begins, “I get really really tired of hearing the phrase “mental illness” thrown around as a way to avoid saying other terms like “toxic masculinity,” “white supremacy,” “misogyny” or “racism.”

He’s more concerned with how the insanity manifests itself than the underlying mental illness. This is like criticizing coverage of Jack–the–Ripper for not pointing out his poor surgical technique.

The Charleston shooter was manifestly a crazy racist. The description has the advantage of being accurate without making the rest of white America, and gun owners in particular, responsible for the deaths.

Chu does have the distinction of being the first soft–on–sanity leftist I’ve encountered. He complains about the lack of “serious policy proposals for how to improve our treatment of the mentally ill in this country,” but he wants to exploit the mentally ill to remove guns from the law–abiding sane.

He contends that pointing out the crazy component of white mass shooters is only an excuse to begin a reign of terror among the mentally ill by requiring them to undergo treatment and possibly recover. “Elliot Rodger’s (Isla Vista) parents should’ve been able to force risperidone down his throat. Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech) should’ve been forcibly institutionalized. Anyone with a mental illness diagnosis should surrender all of their constitutional rights, right now, rather than at all compromise the right to bear arms of self-declared sane people.”

Since Rodger’s score was three killed with knives and three killed with guns, confiscating my guns wouldn’t have prevented his spree. And Cho was so nutty a professor wanted him banned from her classes before he started shooting.

The mental health component of preventing gun violence is to bar gun ownership to anyone who’s been involuntarily committed to a psychiatric institution. Second Amendment rights can reinstate after five years and a doctor’s clearance.

But logical consistency doesn’t matter when the end goal of the left is to control guns by confiscating guns.

To Chu calling someone mentally ill is like pulling a gun on them, so to speak. “When you call someone “mentally ill” in this culture it’s a way to admonish people not to listen to them, to ignore anything they say about their own actions and motivations…”

Sure, just ask Kathleen Willey how that works.

But why any sane person would want to listen to Seung–Hui Cho’s ranting is a mystery to me and that goes for all the rest of the mass shooters and their manifestos.

The entire piece is so full of straw men that the column constitutes a fire hazard, but I think his solution to the problem is getting rid of white men and privately owned guns.

Chu appears to believe that the white, oppressive culture that is America today — President Obama, call your office — broadcasts subliminal messages picked up by the most vulnerable among us, who aren’t crazy, just indoctrinated.

No credit is ever granted to white America. “And hundreds of years of history in which an entire country’s economy was set up around chaining up millions of black people, forcing them to work and shooting them if they get out of line? That’s just history.” The only problem with that is slavery in the US lasted less than 100 years and 400,000 Union troops died to remove that stain from our nation’s honor.

Finally, in full frothing–at–the–mouth mode, he concludes, “We love to talk about individuals’ mental illness so we can avoid talking about the biggest, scariest problem of all–societal illness.”

The entire piece reads enough like a manifesto to make me hope Chu isn’t a gun owner himself. The rational among us can be thankful that outside the fever swamp of Salon this screed will have little influence and we can mark Chu as a Bernie Sanders voter who thought the finest moment in recent history was the Occupy movement.
