Trump Hits a Nerve

This is a must read article :
http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/Articles/tabid/109/ID/3343/Donald-Trump-Is-Right-About-John-McCain.aspx

The Republican Party had better wake-up to what is really going on these past 30+ years—-even as I might add—it’s been going on for a Hell-of a lot longer.   I would suggest people——take Trump seriously—-for he holds a couple of Trump Cards—-(no joke meant)——if in fact the Republican Party wants to play hard ball.  This thing could get real serious—–real quick.

I believe the question coming into play is; —- Is Donald Trump  and the other 15-16 folks running—serious about their want of saving America as the next president? Because if they are—–McCain,—-the Republican Leadership,—–and Rino’s along with the “Progressives” had better watch out as to who they attack.—-If Trump plays the Red, White and Blue card—–the game is over—he will not need the issues card but will stand on the his and everyone’s record.  As the article implies—-What is the “Record”? — What has McCain done for his POW and Vet’s compatriots—as he was in the Senate?

No let us continue to dig as deep as need be—What about the Federal Reserve and what have they done to the American Citizens and the “Economy”?  What about the Department of Education and the Educational System with “Common Core”?  I have a whole bag full of “What About” questions that need answering.  Hell if the politicians would have been answering and/or doing something about them over the years we might not be in this mess—and—and—Donald Trump may never have come on to the scene.

So don’t blame Poor Trump—Ha Ha—“poor”—–Hell—–the Republican Party forced him on to the stage—if for no other reason than to take advantage of it.

WHEN?

In view of the recent riots across the country—-When are the blacks going to be held responsible for their criminal behavior? When are they going to marry the women they impregnate? When are they going to pay for their children they are responsible for? When are they going to act civilized instead of living as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago? When are they going to stop killing their own and destroying our cities? And when is the mainstream news media going to cover those unreported stories? When is Al Sharpton going to stop working for the Democrat party to keep racial tensions stirred up and start working for the people he claims he represents? When is he going to pay his millions of back taxes? When are the Democrats going to stop telling the minorities that they are ‘victims’ and treat them as the working class and expect them to contribute to society as all others are expected to? Blacks have just as much potential as everyone else but will never achieve their God given potential as long as the liberals control them. When are the politicians going to face reality and stop living in LA-LA land before our once great country is no longer great?
I’m waiting!

I have been going through my past articles in an attempt to see if I was close to getting anything right——as I looked into the future back then.  What I find is things had moved forward with a smoothness that is surprising to me—-even as the same symptoms seem to be prevailing in the culture today as they did then.  The indicators with symptoms and issues seem to be worse today than in the past but somehow things and life seem to move along with smoothness and not seem that bad.  Therefore few notice anything of a serious nature that is wrong and few seem to care one way or the other.

In my article “Nail me to the Barn” written Oct. 25, 2007—–We find this quote from Jim Sinclair in the article;
“The very idea that credit and borrowing is wealth is a perversion of economics 101 thanks to Mr. Greenspan.  The Federal Reserve and Mr. Bernicke have put the dollar in terrible jeopardy and its’ technical position has been compromised…”

The deterioration of the culture today seems to be more intense showing signs of failure that no one seems to notice—–with the citizens appearing to have blinders on, moving ever easy through the maze of regulation and Big Government Corruption (Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation being the latest) —-the citizens seeing one scandal after another roll off the assembly line of government and the bureaucratic entanglement of intrigue.  As my predictions in 2007 never did come to pass—–so I ask myself in 2015—– How is this possible?  And how long can this go on?

Look at this:

Some 7 plus years later we find Bernicke come and gone with the FED chairman now being a women by the name of Ms.Yellen who within the last year has taken over as the “Printing Press Manager”—printing the American citizen Trillions and Trillions of dollars in debt—–the stock market has no reason for going up—yet it is——Silver and Gold pricing is being suppressed—WHY?—The Weimar Republic has not come to pass and somehow we have managed to keep both “Inflation” and the “Terrorist” out of the USA and off the almighty Dollar$$$$——-even as we found the terrorist 7 miles south of the southern borders in some camp (So they say) and that just happened a couple of weeks ago.  The first Black president is now into his second term with racial tensions worse than they had been at Harpers Ferry with John Brown and before the Civil War.  As I write Baltimore, Md. is burning—-so they say—with white cops supposedly killing Black folks across the country and some folks think they should have some space to themselves to burn and waste.  Nothing is making any sense—with government leadership giving your property away to someone—so they burn it—–nothing seems right —-&—-nothing the government does is trusted to be true or right any more—the “Constitution” is not keeping anything in line or right side up.

How this stayed together from 2007 until now is a mystery.  If this does stay together until 2016 it will be by God’s grace as was His grace the last 7 years—–you name it —nothing is right nor does anything seem right—and—-voting a Republican into the office of president in 2016 is not going to fix any of this.  Let us see how this works out and if the progressives don’t bury another RINO—-along with the country on Election Day 2016.
We Shall See—shortly—Don’t you think?

What is to Happen?

What is to happen if unjust or tyrannical laws are put in place?  The question with its answer has history to look to.
Thomas Aquinas said, “An unjust law is no law at all.”  The Nurenburg Trials answer that question with condemnation in following a tyrannical magistrate and America’s founders were known to say—-“Disobedience to tyrants is obedience to God”.

Christianity has had a salvific effect on the culture and the forming and protecting of Western Civilization—in John Murray book “Principles of Conduct” 1957 we have this—“…biblical ethics has a paramount concern with the heart…”

I believe to understand what Aquinas, the Nurenburg Trials and the Founding Fathers believed and/or thought, in coming to their conclusions, we must understand the deeper meaning of ethics as a standard of conduct or the Biblical meaning of “The Way”.

I will be quoting extensively John Murray’s thoughts on the subject as he puts them forth in his book “Principles of Conduct”.  I will try to condense his thoughts into this short paper therefore any misinterpretation of his thoughts will be completely my doing.

We start with Murray quoting Saint Paul in 1st Corinthians 15:33 “Be not deceived; evil associations corrupt good manners”.  Paul is here noting a Christian ethic that will and can be corrupted by evil associations. Murray goes on to capture the sense of these differences in meaning that ethics might have.

“When we use the word ‘ethics’ to designate a way of life we are not necessarily using the expression ‘way of life’ in an appreciative sense.  It may be used depreciatively…”

“This specialized use of the expression ‘the way’ comprehends all that is distinctive of the Christian faith as ‘the way’ of righteousness,…”

“If ethics is concerned with manner of life and behavior, biblical ethics is concerned with the manner of life and behavior which the Bible requires and which the faith of the Bible produces….”

“While we may use the word ‘conduct’ or ‘behavior’ to denote the sum-total of the actions which constitute the pattern of life, yet behind all overt action is the dispositional character or complex which is the psychological determinant of action.  Hence ethics must take into account the dispositional complex of which the overt act is the expression.  This is to say, biblical ethics has paramount concern with the heart out of which are the issues of life.”

“The conduct that is in view in ethics, even when conduct is considered in terms of overt action, is not simply the aggregate of actions.  Ethic views actions in their organic relations to one another.  There is a certain unity and coherence of pattern; each action stands related to the others and cannot be understood or assessed except in that relationship.”

“The behavior with which biblical ethics is concerned is not simply the behavior of individuals; the principles of society bears intimately upon all ethical studies and it bears also upon biblical ethics.  Hence the biblical ethics takes account, not only of individuals as individuals and of their behavior as such, but of individuals in their corporate relationships.  There is corporate responsibility and there is corporate action.”

“…there is no prefect pattern of behavior exemplified in the individual…” so said Murray but as he has revealed (above) there is a pattern of behavior unique to Christianity were service to his fellow man is placed on a higher ethical plane with standards taken from the Bible so that the Christian will have the higher authority as something he is continually aware of and as a true believe in Jesus Christ will try and raise his standards of behavior to meet this new found biblical goals in an attempt to glorify God.

As the country drifts further and further away from any belief in Jesus Christ with no biblical understanding and no fear of God “Ethic’s” becomes an adjusted pattern of conduct that is something in constant flux with no higher authority.

Allow me to quote this from Pastor Matthew J. Trewhella “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate” 2013—-Pg.29

“Men should not respect ‘the rule of law’ just because it is ‘the rule of law’ rather we respect it because as Blackstone said; it does not contradict the law of God.  This is why Western Civilization respected the rule of law nearly 1500 years, precisely because it was based upon the law of God.”

Natural law tied directly to social contract will always have God’s law as their highest authority and laws will be written reflecting those suppositions. If not—-as the Progressive/Atheist takes control the country and culture, they will both slide further and further into the abyss of evilness.

Now back to the initial question; What happens if unjust or tyrannical laws are put in place?  We must find the lesser magistrate who will.
1/ Understands the rule of law and the doctrine of the lesser magistrate.
2/ Research the issue and have a Biblical understanding of the correct application of God’s law in the issues involved.
3/ Have the lesser magistrate willing to defend the ‘Biblical’ position.

The understanding of Biblical ‘Ethics’ ‘Conduct’ and ‘Principles’ is a must and the fact we are becoming less & less of a Christian nation will in the end have profound repercussions on the country and culture—as we lose “THE WAY”.

Is Reason Enough?

I have attempted to look at this thing called “Reason” and the reasoning process.  Why do conservatives not come together with a sound force in that “Right-ness”?  Herman Dooyeweerd  in his book  “In The Twilight of Western Thought”  gives us this insight with this quote.

“If all philosophical currents that pretend to choose their starting points in theoretical reason alone, had indeed , no deeper presuppositions, it should be possible to settle every philosophical argument between them in a purely theoretical way.  But the factual situation is quite different.  A debate between philosophical trends which are fundamentally opposed to each other usually results in reasoning at cross-purposes, because they are not able to find a way to penetrate to each other’s true starting points.”

The above paragraph is true for almost every issue President Obama presents.  If the issue takes a reasoning process, meaning the issue needs debate and discussion, the President’s issue or proposal, with its points of contention will have conflicting believes within the issue and thus the two sides, with different starting points, will add conflict, confusion and at times be at opposite poles, each system being based on indemonstrable axiom calling for some kind of  “Faith” in something—–as both sides attempt to ground their positions in man’s reasoning and not God’s Law. The “Progressive” starting points will not be understood by the conservative unless he is steeped in God’s word, as the reasoning process is being argued from different value systems by both sides, with contention being thick.

The interesting thing is the atheist with his belief system coming from man, thinks he is “Reasonable” and having solid suppositional axioms to argue his positions—so he thinks, having epistemology that leads to skepticism, with politics that leads to anarchy and totalitarianism.  It is no wonder that the “Constitutional Conservative” with the weakest of Western Civilization culture, along with his emotional Christianity as some type of religion and is no match for the solidified reasoning of the “Atheist”—–who does not care what the so called “Conservative” might have to say or what he thinks of the “Atheist” proposal—-it will matter nothing to the “Atheist” at this point in the debate.

The so call “Conservative” will not push the fact that reason cannot serve as a solution to their problems, or can it be the means of achieving a solution.  Reason has no univocal meaning and thereby loses its right to serve as an unproblematic starting point in a philosophical argument or discussion of the issue.  The “Conservative” understands nothing of God’s Law  or Biblical truth and continues to argue using reasoning in his attempt to force a solution to the issue—-all the while the Atheist cares little of what the “conservative thinks or does.  Both overlook the fact that it must be “What is Righteous” and “What is Justice” and by “Who’s law”—that these things be judged and that God’s Law is called all important—–to His glory.  Reason cannot fill those requirements—for all men think themselves “Reasonable” making all supposed facts and starting points the truth and they will play as if——they are a law unto themselves.
It is time to consider Reason and God’s Law—to decide which is the more important.

Pennsylvania Still Doesn’t Need an Extraction Tax

February 18, 2015:

Most know that the oil war and the glut of oil in the market is or has driven down price ——even as I think there is more to it than a simple glut in the market.  This lowering of oil price is putting a strain on the industry here in the USA and especially here in PA—and with that reduction in the price—–a strain in cash flow for that industry here in Pa.

Governor Wolf (Pennsylvania) must know this and yet he is willing to put a tax on the industry and more of a strain to the Industry.  What possible information does he have that would change the complexion of this issue????—-and make this industry not under disparate strain.  The industry has borrowed heavily in start-up costs and needs a higher per barrel price then now exist to have a break-even point in their financial scheme.
He must know that even as he says—-So What—let them eat cake.

This fool (the Governor) wants to tax the Oil and Gas Industry here in Pa. to raise moneys for Education—he refuses to look at HB76 (School Property Tax Elimination Act)—as another means of raising the tax revenues needed, changing the scheme in the funding of the Pa. Department of Education.  He is fixed on and sold on not “Accepting” 76 and the saving of the Pennsylvania Middle class home owner along with the poor home owner on fixed income—-so he realizes nothing of the need to save that part of the culture which will surely collapse under the current taxing pressures.

So with the collapse of the oil and gas prices—–even as it must be some kind of wake-up call——this call—means nothing to the Governor nor any of the lessor Magistrates in their being not willing to defend the people and switch their stand in defense of HB76.  This fool of a governor sees nothing in his scheme of destroying both the middle class & the fixed income folks—–all the while he puts the death nail in the coffin of the Oil & Gas Industry—all at the same time—-here in the State.  How short sighted and cruel can one person get—–WE SHALL SEE????

Not much for statistics any more—-not because they don’t matter but they will not make a hill of beans difference in the making of one’s point or argument against the progressive ——the argument is set and the hard core “Progressive” will not concede their error or change their twisted logic—-to them it is a belief system as is—– what the terrorist believe—to both—-it is “Religion”.

 

Look at this you gun nuts:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pELwCqz2JfE
Now go argue with the folks that want to take your guns—-the guy in the video is arguing correctly but I don’t believe he is arguing strong enough for the protection of the family——it is a “Duty” of man—-heads families and people in general to protect people—-even the poor—–it is about time we stand up and tell that to the sick and evil “Progressive”—-you will never take that duty or righteous instinct (protection) away from the sheep dog and/or a righteous man.

 

I for one am sick of Obama and his elite left wing progressive attitude—he hates America and the God that made this country great.

Amateur or Enemy

If I were a manager of a professional baseball team, would I put in an amateur pitcher with the game on the line? Suppose that pitcher had a chip on his shoulder against his team and the manager? Isn’t that what the voters did when they elected Obama as our leader? He dislikes America and the American way of life and has no experience in managing anything. In fact, he never held a real job. He has always lived off the taxpayers. The people are the manager and Obama despises almost half of them and also despises our ally, Israel. He is soft on our enemies and then cuts our military almost in half. He released 5 of the world’s worst enemies for a man that abandoned his post so he could smooch up to the enemy. He did this without congressional approval. In fact, he does everything without approval from the legislative branch. Presidents don’t do that, only Dictators do that. The mainstream news media continues to make excuses for him. There is a big difference between a baseball game and our security. Our president has yet to figure out what is at stake or he is playing a deadly game with the lives of the American people and is fully aware of what the outcome might be!

WHO’S PLAN?

Most Americans believe we are heading in the wrong direction. What direction is that? Is it domestic policy or foreign policy? Is it the economy and jobs or the lack of our moral values that are changing America? A bit of all I suspect! The black protests in Ferguson Mo and all across the country happened not because the police officer shot an innocent man but because Michael Brown’s followers didn’t want black criminals to be held accountable for their actions.
On the foreign policy front, the America friendly King of Saudi Arabia died and we are not sure of what the ramifications will be for the West. Too make matters worse for the United States, the pro western government of Yemeni fell to the Alqaeda connected rebels. Didn’t the president just give his SOTU speech and assure us that Alqaeda was on the run and he solved the problems in Yemeni and Somalia? He also said he was doing all he could to stem the movement by ISIS from taking over in Iraq and creating a Caliphate? He also stated that he was softening our relationship with nuclear ambitious Iran. I understand that Iran has a new intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the US. As of yesterday, Obama hinted that he doesn’t want to hold talks with Israel’s Netanyahu who is very concerned over Iran’s ambition to blow Israel off the map. Boehner invited Netanyahu before Congress to share his concerns about Iran and Obama invited “YOU TUBE” personalities into the Whitehouse instead!
Obama hinted that everything was peachy and going as planned. He’s right! Everything is going as he planned.

Almost off Balance

The emotion of human nature revolts against the supposition of a state so saturated in false doctrine and contrary to the basic beliefs and the social make-up of the people’s in Western Civilization.  When this happens, as we see happening today, the valued rights will erode causing a break down in righteousness.  This break down continues until it reaches a critical point where there is correction, if not, the culture slides by this point and will then free fall into a state of self-destruction which does not allow things to turn around nor bring itself back into a line of saneness of civil action.

Thomas Jefferson states clearly, a position where government is suppressing the society and must not be reached, for if it does, that society’s only recourse will be—-dissolution and break from its government.

“When the representative body lost the confidence of their constituents, when they have notoriously made sale of their most valuable rights, when they have assumed to themselves powers which the people never put into their hands, then indeed, their continuing in office becomes dangerous to the State, and calls for an exercise of the power of dissolution.”

Page 306 “The Life and Selected Writings of Jefferson” Koch and Peden 1944

The above Jefferson quote comes from his thesis “A Summary View of the Rights of British America.  It was written in 1774, those thoughts and ideas formulated in 1774 where later used in his writing of the Declaration of Independence (1776).

It is difficult for the American people to understand the situation of what Jefferson is writing about, for this type of societal condition is a dreaded position for people to understand and brings nothing but pain.  We have reached the “Evil” which is capable of creating a tyranny that politically cannot be ascribed to accidental opinions of the day.  We are entering a period were the evilness of those politically in charge must be challenged and stopped, or the plan will prove a deliberate systematic plan to reduce the citizens to slavery.  If we cannot get away from (them against us) we will not understand the truth nor the right and wrong of the situation.  Today the evilness of the situation is never placed in the context of right and wrong nor do we want to have a higher authority which has the control over the matter, that being the Constitution or the Bible with God’s law as the higher authority and until we understand this higher authority, we will never reach a clear understanding of the problem.

We Shall See——2015 might be the year understanding happens
