The NEW WORLD ORDER SOCIALIST PARTY Controls America

 

Demomcrat Logo

The united states of America is ruled by one political party. It has a donkey wing and an republican logoelephant wing, both pledging allegiance to the NEW WORLD ORDER cabal of globalist billionaires headed by former Nazi George Soros. Soros got his start to billionaire status by selling fellow Jews to the Nazis and taking their possessions for himself.

Soros now seeks to destroy our nation and rule as a minion of Satan himself as he sold his soul many yearsGeorge Soros ago and was undoubtedly promised a kingdom as Jesus was nearly 2,000 years ago. Jesus refused but Soros accepted the offer it appears.  Soros has the money and lack of morals it takes to pay politicians and judges to get his evil way done to the detriment of liberty. His paid minions are trying to destroy Christianity as God’s people are the only roadblock to the control he seeks and they (Soros/Satan) will stop at nothing to accomplish the goal of the total destruction of the Christian way of life in America. The unlimited funding of immoral causes such as the homosexual Gestapo agenda, the murder of unborn children through abortion, and the support, both financially and physically, of the invasion of Godless criminal illegal aliens and moslems shows his disdain for the rule of God and the Constitution.

Both wings of Satan’s political party Il Duce Obamahave assisted Soros and his puppet, fuehrer barrack Obama, in their quest to turn this nation into just another third world satanic toilet of depravity, slavery, poverty, and misery. The homosexual activists are too deceived to realize that they are being used to implement their own destruction, now and in eternity. They are told they have the “right” to impose their immorality on “intolerant bigots” who follow the Word of God and see homosexuality as sin. God destroyed the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah for the same attitudes and activity but the homosexuals call that a myth to justify their immorality to themselves. The donkey wing is unabashedly open about their disdain for God, booing Him loudly and proudly at their 2012 convention. The elephant wing blatantly lies to Holy bibleChristians to get their votes and, once elected, goes right back to supporting evil and making excuses by calling themselves “bi-partisan”, inclusive, and diverse” while joining the donkey wing in calling Christians vile names. Very few people in government today have any regard at all for the “law of the land”, Constitution 2the Constitution of the United states of America and that fact both angers and saddens me.

As for me and my house, we will follow the Lord!!!!! I ended my affiliation with the elephant wing of the NWOSP due to their despicable behavior at the 2012 Oklahoma state and national conventions where they violated parliamentary procedure and their own “party rules” to disenfranchise the Ron Paul faction they saw, rightly, as a threat to their treacherous ways.

People say we were not founded as a Christian nationBible n Flag Picture but that is not true. While it is true that this nation was not founded as a theocracy, God and the Judeo-Christian faith were an integral aspect of the plan and lives of our founding fathers.

It is time to abolish this federal government that has become a satanic agent and start over as a “shining city on a hill” as our nation was once and needs to be again. Ronald Reagan once said that “if we ever forget we are one nation under God we will be a nation gone under”. This nation has abandoned God and is well on its way under today. Only a return to God and His morality can save this nation now but it appears no one in government and many citizens of today want that to happen. I daily pray for God to raise up a Gideon to lead the USA back to the road to the promised land established by God and our founding fathers.

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.

Word of the day – “MICROAGGRESSION”.

The word “microaggression” has cropped up with increased frequency over the last year, to the point that now I see it almost daily! What does it mean?

Webster’s says it has “no meaning.” It’s not a word. It doesn’t exist! Various blogs, papers, and online source provide a definition, but they’re not “official” dictionaries.

And then, I found www.microaggressions.com. This site was obviously built by people who can’t stand anyone who might, kinda, sorta, could have some kind of privilege going for them. According to this site “microaggression” is defined as:

“Racial micro aggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.”

I have said it before… words no longer have meaning and this is another perfect example of why. This definition specifically says it’s aimed at people of color.

Based on the many “microaggression” stories I’ve covered, the definition should read as follows:

micro aggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative slights and insults towards; __________. (INSERT – anyone identifying as LGBTQ, a woman, a minority, or some other subset of people, no matter how ridiculous).

Recently at Brandeis University, the Asian American Students Association was accused of microaggression for putting up a display to explain microaggression using only Asians… REALLY?

A group at Oberlin University had to issue a warning of microaggression or triggering alerting readers they were about to see “Discussion of rape culture, online harassment, victim blaming, and rape apologism and denialism. REALLY? They needed a warning?

Recently Johns Hopkins University refused to allow Chick-Fil-A to open on campus because the campus LGBTQ club considered it an act of microaggression. So now anyone or anything that offends is microaggression? Well, kinda sorta. It really only seems to apply to certain groups.

If you ask me to remove my Bible from view, you would consider that your right not to be “assaulted” by my belief. But by the definitions above, wouldn’t that be considered a microaggression toward me and my religion?

The latest in microaggressions was reported at Arizona State University. Students petitioned staff to change the name of pedestrian walkways. Why, you ask? Because not everyone can walk and that COULD be viewed as a microaggression to someone in a wheelchair or on crutches. Even the people who were supposed to be offended (those in wheelchairs or on crutches) thought this was ridiculous.

It’s the LEFT who keep racism alive!

This week, among all the garbage that was going on in Baltimore, we saw something we don’t see very often… a parent taking charge of her teenage child who was going down to where the riots were happening. Once the vandalism started it turned to from protests to riots. But she marched through the crowd not caring about her safety to save her child’s life. God bless that woman!

She was a real hero doing something that we don’t see much of today… a parent saying “no, no way, not my child, not today.” She said she wasn’t going to allow her son to disrespect property, disrespect the police, and destroy the community. She said he promised her he would not go down there! So, as SHE said, he lied and went where he should not have been.

This single mom of 6 children took time off from work to be involved. She said when she saw him with his face covered and a brick in his hand she knew he was up to no good. She grabbed him and started smacking him around (with an OPEN hand.) She told him if he wanted to protest he should be a man, show his face, and do it the right way… using nonviolence. (Remember, all you who love Dr. King – nonviolence.)

She did a good thing. She held her son accountable for his actions!

But did she really? The loons on the Left say “no”! They say what she did was wrong. And now Baltimore child protective services is investigating her out. Their statement, “If she would do this to her son in public, what is she doing to her kids in private?” WHAT?! Are they serious?

Christian persecution on the rise around the world

WASHINGTON, DC, May 1 – The persecution of Christians is not limited to the middle east.  A new report by the human rights group, China Aid, shows that a tidal wave of brutal religious oppression is sweeping across Communist China.  Its 2014 Annual Report of Religious and Human Rights Persecution in China issued just days ago revealed that there was a 300% increase in the cases of religious persecution last year.

“Although the Chinese persecutors might be described as tame compared to the atrocities of the jihadists or so-called ‘holy warriors’ in Arabia and Africa, the China Aid report suggests that Christians have become a target of choice on a global scale,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

The statistics confirm that notion.  David Curry, president of Open Doors, which keeps track of nations based on the severity of persecution, has reported that the targeting of Christians worldwide reached historic levels in 2014 and that this year things may get even worse.  Open Doors estimates that there are some 100 million Christians around the world who are in fear of their lives just because they believe in Christ.

“In regions where Christians are being persecuted as central targets, the trends and issues we track are expanding,” Curry said.

It is interesting to note that North Korea tops the list of the world’s worst oppressors, but it is the massacres perpetrated by extremist Islamic terrorists that are cause for the greatest concern, Weber noted.  “The abuses in China and North Korea are alarming but in some Middle Eastern countries, there are few, if any, Christians left.  Radical Muslims with distorted views of their mission in life have used extraordinarily cruel and vicious means to wipe out whole Christian communities.  They’ve beheaded men, women and children in great numbers.  Women are raped and sold off as sex slaves.”

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria [ISIS] and the terror group, Al-Shabaab, have openly stated their intent to rid the lands they seek to control of Christians either by murdering them or forcing them to renounce their faith.  They’ve even reached out to Europe using terror and the threat of terror to create havoc in Paris, Rome and elsewhere in the Christian world.

Individuals on both the right and the left have expressed concern.  The conservative evangelist Reverend Franklin Graham said he is concerned about the rapid spread of the anti-Christian movement and what could happen in the United States.  He criticized the “conspicuous” silence of our political leaders.

Earlier this month 12 Christian refugees from Libya were thrown overboard and drowned by Muslim extremists.  Liberal columnist Kirsten Powers wrote about it in her column in USA Today.  She, too, was critical, singling out President Obama for remaining “mute” on the incident.  At a joint news conference after a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Powers noted that Mr. Obama “failed to interject any sense of outrage or even tepid concern for the targeting of Christians for their faith.  If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested?  When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings.  But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.”

Weber concluded that while the rise of Christian persecution is gaining greater attention, there is a need for western countries, including the U.S., to view the problem as a matter of foreign policy.  “We need a serious solution to a grim problem.  We need to encourage our leadership to take appropriate action to preserve and protect religious freedom at home and abroad.  The Founding Fathers considered the right to worship enough of a national security issue to make it a key part of the first amendment in our Constitution.  We need, as a nation, to take it seriously enough to make it a priority of our foreign policy.”

Worshiping Gaia On Her Holy Day

Establishment ClauseEvery year at this time, schools at all levels and all across the nation violate the establishment clause of the First Amendment of the Constitution. That’s the clause that proscribes state-sponsored institutions from advancing any religious organization or movement, and is usually cited (though incorrectly) as the “separation of church and state.” Not only does academia fully embrace religion the week of Earth Day observance, but it actively works, knowingly or not, to indoctrinate a whole new generation of adherents to a pantheist green religion.

The notion that we are stewards of our planet, and that we must nurture and protect it as we utilize the resources she provides us is both logical and moral, and should be universally embraced. But Earth Day, and the environmental movement behind its evangelism, has advanced far beyond the logical and moral. It is now a full-fledged religion, a worship of Mother Earth, or Gaia.

gaia8838detailAs one Earth Day source proclaims, “Our Earth, as known in Greek mythology is Gaia. The Greeks were considering Earth acknowledgment years before we started our Earth Day Affair. The first Greek god was actually a goddess. She is Gaia, or Mother Earth, who created herself out of primordial chaos. From her fertile womb all life sprang, and unto Mother Earth all living things must return after their allotted span of life is over. Gaia, as Mother Nature, personifies the entire ecosystem of Planet Earth. Mother Nature is always working to achieve and maintain harmony, wholeness and balance within the environment. Mother Nature heals, nurtures and supports all life on this planet, and ultimately all life and health depend on Her. In time, Nature heals all ills.”

In 1979, a NASA employee, James Lovelock, formulated the Gaia hypothesis. It states that “all life, and all living things on this planet, are part of a single, all-encompassing global entity or consciousness” which he named Gaia. “It is this global consciousness, Mother Gaia, that makes our planet the mother of life.”

Worthip the Earth DayMany in the movement have elucidated the mystical relationship of man to Mother Earth. The British writer, William Golding, said, “We are the children of that great blue white jewel [Mother Earth]. Through our mother we are part of the solar system and part through that of the whole universe.”

The eco-theologian Thomas Berry has been perhaps most explicit in defining the divine-feminine relationship of Gaia to man. “What does the Earth Desire? I will put it in just a few short sentences… To be admired in her loveliness, To be tasted in her delicious fruits, To be listened to in her teaching, To be endured in the severity of her discipline, To be cared for as a maternal source from whence we come, a destiny to which we return. It’s very simple…As humans we are born of the Earth, nourished by the Earth, healed by the Earth.”

Clearly, Mother Earth, or Gaia, is ascribed theological properties, with teleological implications, including creation, veneration (worship), and a maternal relationship with earth’s inhabitants, her children.

UN Mother Earth DayThis relationship is even codified in the resolutions of the United Nations, a full listing of which can be found on the UN website under the title “Mother Earth Day.” These resolutions form the religious equivalent to a catechism on deference toward Mother Earth on a secular philosophical basis.

Another revelatory document from the UN even identifies the natural enemies or apostates to the green religion. In a document that was mandated by the UN-sponsored Convention on Biological Diversity, the Global Biodiversity Assessment, Christianity is explicitly identified as heterodox to Gaia. The document blames Christianity for subverting some indigenous people’s sense of “affinity with the natural world,” leading to destructive practices deemed crucial to saving the planet.

Christianity, to the UN, is therefore antithetical, and constitutes the ideological “root of ecological evil.” The document goes on to praise Buddhism and Hinduism as they “did not depart as drastically from the perspective of humans as members of a community of beings including other living and non-living elements.”

This should not be a surprise to any who are paying attention to the political correctness trends, which make Christianity and Christians acceptable targets as dregs of society and banes to civilization. That’s why it’s the only religion that is acceptable to be criticized, be the brunt of jokes, and even faddishly ridiculed by bigots and secularists.

Earth Our Home Not Our GodThe Mother Earth religion has its prophets, like Al Gore, James Hansen, Gaylord Nelson, Michael Mann, Kenneth Watt, and Paul Ehrlich. And the EPA appears to serve as the High Council to enforce and regulate all human activities to ensure fealty to Gaia, employing pseudo-science and half-truths as justification.

Unlike organized ecclesiastical organizations, however, Gaia’s followers, and supporting industries and academics, don’t just get a tax break from Uncle Sam. They actually do one better: they are on the receiving end of tax-free loans, seemingly endless tax-credits, and grants for “research” and industries that support the faith.

Some may scoff at the notion of this hallowed international holy day as representative of pantheistic dogma and a veritable religion. But as averred by the inductive-reasoning “Duck Theory,” if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it probably is one. Educators and the government in general certainly should encourage responsible citizenship as it relates to the environment. But it’s gone far beyond that. The Mother Earth pantheism, the essence of a state sponsored religion, really should be treated no differently than any other religion.

Equal pay starts at home!

Equal pay starts at home, at least that is what his Highness King OBLAMO thinks. In a speech this week, the guy who claims he knows the Constitution, knows what the people want, and, well, he just plain knows everything, hasn’t figured out that we didn’t elect his wife. She wasn’t on the ticket. OK, you got me. There are a lot of things he hasn’t figured out yet and, with any luck, won’t before the end of his “kill America” campaign.

This woman (yes, I said it, deal with it) started off by saying, when her husband ran for office, this was the first time she was proud of America or proud to be an American. Was that because they finally pulled off one of the biggest scams on the American public? Was it because they were able to use the legal tools at their disposal to seal Oblamos records and make sure that no one really knew about his upbringing, school experience, girlfriends (if he had any), boyfriends (if he had any), college scores, attendance, drug or alcohol abuse, and so on? All the things the Dems want to know about every Conservative candidate that has and ever will run? And they get nasty if it’s hidden or covered up! One-sided justice, but I digress. equal-pay-cartoon-mckee-495x327

Her Majesty, Mrs. Oblamo, has stated openly that being in the White House is like being in prison. That one of the reasons they stopped attending church is because they needed down time from their very demanding schedules. Down time away from God? WOW! A “Christian” family who says they need time away from God so they can just to be together. Very confusing. I guess they must have missed the scripture that speaks about forsaking fellowship or the gathering together of other believers. Again I digress!

Mrs. Oblamo consistently complains about her role, about her prison, about American, and now she wants to be paid for it? Really? She has more “aids” than any 20 prior First Ladies combined! She wastes more taxpayer dollars on personal vacations and shopping sprees around the world than any 40 First Ladies combined.

Mr. Oblamo tried to gain sympathies (and more of the women vote) by saying:

“I want to make sure that when she’s working she’s getting paid the same as men. I gotta say that First Ladies right now don’t get paid, even though that’s a tough job!”

Hey, professor, she has a voluntary job! One that she knew required a lot of work to represent this country. It’s called public service. When you spoke to Michelle before you ran the first time didn’t you guys agree that it would be a sacrifice, one worthy of the work for this great country? Didn’t you discuss the significance of you being the first REAL Black president (Clinton being seen as the first honorary black president) and the first black family to inhabit the White House… a house that you live in free of charge, on top of your salary, with full protection for your entire family.

Did you guys agree on the office? Or was it a “What the hey, let’s give it a try and see what happens. We’ll figure out the rest later,” kind of moment. I would bet it was the latter.

Michelle, your job is voluntary. Volunteers get nothing but recognition. You don’t like it, QUIT! Hang out. Lay around all day. Do nothing. You’d save us a bundle. People would give their first born to have that job, yes, the volunteer one. To have the power you have to influence education, children’s health (in a good way,) to go to foreign lands, and not for the shopping, but to influence governments for women’s rights, children’s rights, and bring light to the sex slave industry. Your volunteer job is an honor, not a nuisance.

Your role as First Lady is to be an ambassador for America, not a slug for America. Your husband is already getting paid more than he’s worth. Have him give you some of his money.

People, I have never seen two individuals who are so out of touch with the reality of the American people and the safety of the world than Mr. and Mrs. Oblamo. And they back it up with their actions.

I can’t find one real initiative they’ve done in the name of the United States. They’ve done many in the name of His High and Mighty Oblamo, but NONE in the name of this country. Only constant complaints about and apologies for America while in foreign countries and Mrs. Oblamo’s constant whining about how tough her job is.

NEW FLASH… you have NO job! You have an honorary position that you chose to accept. You don’t like it, LEAVE! And don’t let the door hit you on the way out……..

Easter – A Celebration of Hope and Rebirth

For Christians worldwide, Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus the Christ. While the eschatological doctrines associated with Christ’s crucifixion, death, and resurrection are a matter of faith, the attestation of primary accounts makes Jesus’ emergence from the tomb a matter of historical record. And many of the contemporary symbols associated with Easter date back centuries, and represent elements of this most holy of events from the life of one Jesus of Nazareth.

isaiah-scroll.lTo a historian, primary sources are the bedrock to validate or invalidate events or individuals averred to be historical. Princeton University History Department defines a primary source as, “a document or physical object which was written or created during the time under study. These sources were present during an experience or time period and offer an inside view of a particular event.”

Primary sources regarding the life of Jesus of Nazareth are plentiful. The eyewitness accounts of four contemporaries are recorded in the synoptic Gospels, the first four books of the New Testament. There are many secular primary sources that attest to the fact that Jesus lived at the time, including Roman historians Tacitus and Suetonius, and the Jewish historian Josephus.

As a quantitative matter of fact, there are more primary sources confirming the reality of Jesus of Nazareth than there are of the Roman leader Julius Caesar. Yet to my knowledge, no serious historian of the antiquities questions whether Julius Caesar really lived. Validating this concept, Rylands professor of biblical criticism and exegesis at the University of Manchester, F. F. Bruce wrote, “The historicity of Christ is as axiomatic for an unbiased historian as the historicity of Julius Caesar.” World historian Will Durant indicates that, to the best of his knowledge, “no Jew or Gentile from the first-century ever denied the existence of Jesus.”

images-1One of the most prolific classicists of our era, Michael Grant, has said, “In recent years, no serious scholar has ventured to postulate the non historicity of Jesus’ or at any rate very few, and they have not succeeded in disposing of the much stronger, indeed very abundant, evidence to the contrary.” In another of his works he states, “There are those who argue that Jesus is a figment of the Church’s imagination, that there never was a Jesus at all. I have to say that I do not know any respectable critical scholar who says that any more.”

The public death of Christ, by crucifixion, is also broadly accepted as historical fact. Michael Grant said of that event, as well as the account of his baptism, that those “two facts in the life of Jesus command almost universal assent.” Jesus’ public crucifixion is likewise referenced by secular historians of the age, Josephus and Tacitus.

Primary accounts of Jesus’ resurrection however, are exclusively non-secular. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John’s accounts of Jesus’ life, death, and subsequent resurrection, were canonized. Yet they were written, and widely promulgated, during the time when most of their contemporaries could have dismissed their accounts if they were perceived to have been fabricated or in error. F.F. Bruce confirms this perception, “Had there been any tendency to depart from the facts in any material respect, the possible presence of hostile witnesses in the audience would have served as a further corrective.”

Most of the original apostles died ignominious and horrible deaths as a direct result of their avowed faith in Jesus as Messiah. They died as martyrs for their convictions and testimony regarding the risen Christ. It is wholly unfathomable that someone would die a martyr’s death for a story thought to be no more than a fable. The fact that eleven of them, twelve including Paul of Tarsus, would do so only attests to the veracity of their witness statements. They forever sealed their testimonies with their blood.

blogger-image--1527425496Our contemporary iconography associated with Easter is colorful, literally, starting with the Easter bunny. Rabbits are widely known to be prolific procreators, and in some ancient cultures symbolized new life and fertility. The first Easter bunny arrived in America in the 1700s, courtesy of German immigrants, who perpetuated their tradition of an egg-laying hare called “Osterhase, or “Oschter Haws.” German youth would make nests where the hare could lay its colored eggs, which later simply became decorated baskets for the multicolored eggs.

The egg itself represents new life. For Christians, Christ emerging from the tomb is symbolic of newborn life exiting an eggshell. Coloring and decorating eggs, according to some sources, dates back to the 13th century, undoubtedly with some pagan influence.

The timing of the Christian world’s Easter celebration is somewhat enigmatic to many, since it is observed anywhere from March 22nd, to April 25th. This is because early Christians felt that since the resurrection of their Lord occurred after the Passover, they always wanted Easter to follow that Jewish feast, which is based on solar and lunar cycles. The short explanation, roughly speaking, is that Easter is celebrated on the Sunday following the Paschal Full Moon.

imagesWhether celebrated for its theological implications, or its secular treats, Easter represents new life and resurrection, as the Northern hemisphere springs to life following the dreary, darker, and shorter days of winter. The symbolism likewise can represent as much or as little as one desires, but traditionally links back to rebirth and new life. How we respond to the symbolism and the day itself is wholly up to each of us.

Former Cardinal Basil Hume said of Easter, “The great gift of Easter is hope.” And in a world of so much ugliness, evil, and negativity, we all need all the hope we can get.

Destructive Effects of Multiculturalism

America has a rich history as a melting pot of cultures, ethnicity, and religion. Those who have come here over the past couple hundred years have sought a better life through the freedoms and liberties assured by our Constitution and the free enterprise system that fosters their “pursuit of happiness.” They’ve brought their culture, customs, and language with them, but they became Americans: learned English, learned our customs and conventions, and became encultured into the American way. America is great in large part because of the diversity of our people, and the richness of our cultural elements brought here. But multiculturalism has become much more than that, and is now more destructive than ameliorative, to American culture.

MulticulturalismIf the goal of multiculturalism was followed, which was to primarily facilitate the understanding and respect of other cultures, it would contribute, even add “seasoning” to our melting pot by encouraging our young people to compare and contrast, and then eclectically assimilate the best of all cultures. Instead, it has become an assailant to diminish Western values and advance ideologies distinctly anti-American. It has evolved, or devolved, to an illogical extreme that in academic and educational circles, attempts to vitiate the strengths and advances of Western civilization and promotes other cultures as preferable cultural paragons, regardless of their shortcomings.

Thomas Sowell, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University has said, “What ‘multiculturalism’ boils down to is that you can praise any culture in the world except Western culture – and you cannot blame any culture in the world except Western culture.”

Roger Kimball of the New Criterion has written, “Wherever the imperatives of multiculturalism have touched the curriculum, they have left broad swaths of anti-Western attitudinizing competing for attention with quite astonishing historical blindness.” Multiculturalism has led to the historical revisionism that paints Christopher Columbus as a nefarious European who initiated the transformation of a supposed paradisiacal Western hemisphere into the evil, corrupt America of today.

multiculturalism-poster-denigrationIt is multiculturalism that precludes Shakespeare from being studied by many university literature and English majors, because he was a “sexist and racist white man.” It is also the underlying principle engaged in revising history, including the historical roots of our contemporary observance of Thanksgiving and acknowledgement of the Christian principles prevalent at the time of our founding. Multiculturalism, in it’s extreme, is at the root of the removal of any references to Christ in the public square and public schools, even at the time we celebrate His birthday, for one characteristic of the movement is distinctly anti-Christian.

As convoluted as it may seem, Al Gore was perhaps correct when in the 2000 Presidential campaign he defined E Pluribus Unum as out of one, many, instead of the other way around. Multiculturalism in its extreme form seeks to divide rather than unify as Jefferson and Franklin intended, as emblazoned on the official Seal of the U.S.

A poll by the Pew Research Center a few years ago indicated that only 55% of Hispanics, living either legally or illegally in this country, consider themselves Americans. Another poll of Muslims in Los Angeles County indicated that only 10% of them consider themselves to be Americans. It seems the hyphenation of Americans is another social and cultural divider, rather than a unifier. A hyphenated American is just another symptom of political correctness.

Multiculturalism in its extreme weakens community bonds and reduces the motivation for new immigrants to participate in the common culture, the shared history and the common language of America: English.

The American concepts of freedom of expression, religion, human rights, liberty and democracy are distinctively Western values. As historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. has said, “These are European ideas, not Asian, nor African, nor Middle-Eastern ideas, except by adoption. There is surely no reason for Western civilization to have guilt trips laid on it by champions of cultures based on despotism, superstition, tribalism, and fanaticism.”

Teddy RooseveltThe pejorative aspects of multiculturalism have contributed alarmingly to a Balkanization of America, where differences are the focus instead of common values and ideals. Where culture and ethnicity divide us, rather than adding seasoning to our melting pot to enrich the entire culture.

President Theodore Roosevelt put the concepts of multiculturalism in perhaps the best context, although it was of course not known as such in 1907. He declared, “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

As long as multiculturalism is an end in and of itself, or worse, as a means to continue to diminish western values and our history, and divide and weaken our country, we will continue to decline as a culture, losing those distinctively American traits that once made the nation unique. As it diminishes our value system, erodes our cultural strengths, and rewrites our history, the very meaning of what it means to be an American is perhaps forever changed.

Hypocrisy Only Applies to the Right!

Another week of news cycle finger-pointing goes both ways. The Left calls the Right hypocrites. The Right calls the Left hypocrites. Then comes the, “I know you are but what am I” line. Do you feel like you’re back in high school with all the drama?

I took a parenting class years ago where the person teaching the class said that kids are masters at deflecting the conversation to get out of trouble and take the heat off of themselves. They twist and tweak and throw temper tantrums until they get what they want. Enter the loons on the Left!

It started with Senator Dick Durban’s (D) statement saying that Republican Senators were going to hold up Loretta Lynch’s nomination until a vote was cast for a specific bill. Why did Republicans do that? Because Democrat Senators were playing politics with a serious sex slave and human trafficking bill. Durban stated that Republicans were relegating her to the “back of the bus” until the bill was passed. Hmmm… what possible meaning would “back of the bus” have? Why didn’t he say “back burner” or “the end of line” or something less, what am I looking for here, RACIAL! Instead, he tried to make it look like Republicans were not interested in affirming her or voting on her confirmation simply because she was black. Mr. Durbin, your medication isn’t working! Wasn’t it you who held up the nomination of Condoleezza Rice as Secretary of State? But I’ll bet the farm it had nothing to do with her color or her being a black woman, nor did a Republican accuse you of that.

Then there is that little matter of Democrats not getting involved with Netanyahu because it was too close to the elections in his country. As if shaking hands with our president would have assured him a win! Although if Obama’s campaign operatives were smart they might have made it happen considering a recent CNN poll showing that the majority of Israelis don’t trust Mr. Obama.

Faith, Celebrities, Charity, & the War on Christianity!

Denzel Washington dishes on his religious upbringing and his faith in God and the Bible.

War on Christianity (not all religions). You don’t see the Quran and Torah being banned from schools, military, and public places like is happening with the Bible.

Celebrities who “come out” vocal about their Christian faith.

Are you looking for your blessing? When was the last time you blessed someone else?

Ferguson police setup & got themselves shot to gain sympathy, according to neighbors! HUH?

 

The Loons are Making Headway!

Each week I am inundated with emails from people all over the country with stories that are “out of this world.” Some are so deep in conspiracy theories that, if compiled, we would have a great science fiction novel. But let’s deal with a little reality, truth, and fact!

Look at what’s happening on our college campuses. Jewish students being arrested at a peaceful protest for inciting a riot. They did nothing. The opposition started the violence because they wanted the Jewish students to stop “spreading their propaganda.” Wow, really!? On our college campuses, where free thought and free flow of ideas are openly welcomed? REALLY? Or recently, at a California college, a Jewish student was denied acceptance to a committee. Not because she was unqualified, but because she was Jewish. Yep. So much for a institutes of higher learning and reason.

Where are the professors and administrators while all this is going on? Sitting around their little Lib think-tanks, or should I say, “Devoid of Rational Thought Tanks.” There is little to no pushback from the Liberal academia. Why? From what I have read, it’s because they are smarter than us! It’s because we are too uneducated to work it through without their help and anyone from “their world.” Any professors who take a more Conservative stance on issues are immediately ridiculed and pushed out. Once again I say, so much for freedom of thought and free flowing ideas on campus.

It seems most of these campuses have become little Liberal concentration camps to reprogram those who have lost their way and gone down the Conservative thinking path. They have to be reprogrammed and brought back to a more Liberal way of thinking. Those already in the Liberal Camp are reinforced that all is good in their world.

No, you say?

Parenting, Millennials, & More!

University debates non-discrimination in the clubs. Allowing Christians to run atheist clubs and vice versa. PC run amok. Can we just use some common sense, people?

Multiple cups of coffee MAY reduce your risk of Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Sounds like good news. Possibly too good to be true…

Store, Marks & Spencer, bans use of words Jesus and Christ in gift messages, but jihad Buddha Allah are ok.

DEA warns of stoned rabbits if Utah passes medical marijuana. Really? That’s your biggest concern?

Liberals go crazy over beautiful women working in Scott Walker’s office. Is that all they could find? That’s not a scandal folks. Who are they to say that the most qualified applicant couldn’t be beautiful? Talk about a sexist statement!

Nothing says political like Selma!

The President went to Selma, Alabama to celebrate and commemorate the march across the bridge that helped bring civil rights to the forefront, into the living room of all Americans, and help move it forward. Yes, it was aimed at the black community, but as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed, all would be judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin… black, white, brown, or otherwise.

I say commemorate because the people involved in the Selma march (there were white folks there too) were not welcome there. They knew they could be killed. They knew they would have no place to sleep, probably not much food, and certainly not much help. They didn’t care. They knew that what they were fighting for was right and, as with our forefathers, believed it was worth losing everything for, even dying for. They deserve to be remembered and honored.

Unlike people today who say they are protesting about how they are being treated. “Hands up don’t shoot” turned out to be a lie. Any apologies to the policeman who had to quit and move out of town because of that LIE? Not so much.

These people would have made Dr. King proud, right? I am sure he would have encouraged them to loot and burn down buildings and beat up people in their communities, right? No, he would not have approved! He was for peaceful demonstrations, unlike the Reverend Al “Get-it-where-and-when-I-can” Sharpton. Rev. Al forgot that at his million marchers event in New York City. His followers chanted: “What do we want??…DEAD COPS!…When do we want them??…NOW!!!” A perfect example of Dr. King? I think not.

I say celebrate because we celebrate the sacrifices made that day in Selma by people of all colors, yes, mostly black, but many others as well. The actions of those people that day sparked and continued a movement that couldn’t and won’t be stopped!

Jump ahead 50 years. We have a black president, a black attorney general, and many positions of authority at the White House are filled by people who have black skin (sorry, I’m not calling them all “African American” because I have been told by many blacks that they are not all of African descent, some are from Belize, Jamaica, and so on). We have come a long way in 50 years. Are we perfect? No!

Nasty old white guys!

CPAC 2015 Pre-View

CPAC stands for the Conservative Political Action Committee. Big woop! What does that mean? Well, in looking at some of the posts on Facebook and other online services, I can see that the Left believes it’s a bunch of stuffy, old, white, grey-haired guys that think the only good minority is one working for minimum wage.
‘Where did that come from? Can’t be from actual fact. Because leadership in the Republican party is as diverse, if not more so, than the Democrats leadership.
Look at the lineup, Governor Bobby Jindal, U.S. Representative Mia Love, Carly Fiorina, Senator Tim Scott and the list goes on. So how is it we let the Dem’s paint a picture of us as the modern day KKK? Marketing! You can lie about anything as long as you market it to the right people the right way.
To be clear, the Dems voted against ending slavery, against giving women the right to vote, and they started the KKK with the express intent to scare the blacks back into slavery or kill them off all together.
The Democrats have painted a picture that Republicans were responsible for all this. Like Brian Williams’ rescue from the downed chopper, it ain’t so!
President LBJ said he knew how to keep them n*****s voting for Democrats for 100 years. He was right. Keep anyone dependent on the government for food, shelter, money and so on and they will do anything you want them to do out of self-preservation.
Republicans have always fought for the rights of all people. All the misdirection from the Left can’t change that.
And let’s talk about this “war on women.” …
