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!
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.
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
If any of the following are false you can go to step two in discussing—–not having a gun, nor allowing me to have a conceal carry permit. If they (Below bold) are true then stay away from me and my 2nd amendment rights. The second point below (Bold) particularly bothers me because I know —–a large percentage were Armenian Christians, I would guess in all categories below there was a high percentage of “Christians” in those statistics.
author unknown (but obviously brilliant)
A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. >From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. >From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
You won’t see these data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late! The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this History lesson. With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.
During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they
knew most Americans were ARMED!
The argument could continue forever with neither side making any progress in convincing anyone of the right to own a gun and having a permit to carry—those who agree with the second amendment will always agree and those against that position will always disagree in what the second amendment represents—with no citizen having a gun for protection.
So I propose we do this:
Any incident involving a gun with the person caught should be categorized as with someone having a permit to carry a gun and/or one who does not have a permit to carry. We can see quickly, who the good guys are, and who the bad guys would be. And if they do not have a permit when caught carrying in public they should have no bail and jail time tacked on to the offence they were involved in using the gun, and only if there was a violation of some law—with—self-defense and protection of family not being a violation of law.
I have this simple proposition which would only involves a simple check mark in the correct box on the report that the officer must fill out regarding the incident. I do believe this simple check mark will prove that a much larger percentage of incidents involving guns—-will have that person not having a permit and the real bad guys committing the crime or incident. It will also prove the bad guys can get the gun and not even worry about having a legal permit allowing them to carry in public.
Therefore restricting gun owner ship or the eliminating of concealed carry permits will do nothing to curtail gun violence and in fact will take dollars (conceal carry permit revenues) from the local sheriff department and that revenue burdens would need be placed on some other citizens group if in fact they are to maintain the same level of revenues.
No—–I for one am sick of this misdirection of solutions and the Progressive evilness being thrown at the American citizens—VIA–Socialism through crisis. “We the People” were once a proud Republic—-with a “Constitution” that meant something and was followed—-not anymore—and we are heading toward total social and cultural destruction–on the wrong path—-going in the wrong direction.
We shall see—Don’t you think?
Having big problems within the social fabric cannot be denied, and the attempted solutions of these individual issues will not correct the larger problems. I have stated this to a number of people——the problem is much larger——in that “We the People” have been placed on the wrong path going in the wrong direction and many do not understand the correcting of this problem—–the one or two or three issues we might correct in the scope of things—-mean nothing, especially if we cannot bring these two concerns into play.
(A) Understanding the root of the problem, and the fact it will have a biblical solution, all the while preaching the Gospel and a move toward repentance and salvation in Jesus Christ.
(B) Enforcing the law of the land in the “Constitution”.
It is now becoming clearer (with each passing day) the politicians will not listen to “We the People” nor will they correct anything within the government that has gone a rye, all the while they refuse to understand——the path and direction is wrong, which will have dangerous end results and serious consequences. It is a continued misdirection of the argument, arguing on minor points with a false solution being presented. Never having major points such as, is the function of the Department of Education a proper order of government—–instead we argue “Common Core” not touching the Department of Education and the issue of—eliminating it. Another is the “Federal Reserve” and it’s printing of the money—-we fail to question the FED”s function in the process of printing money and making that money available to the government and its people. What right does the government and/or the FED have in printing money——only to pile it on as debt for “We the People”?—How dare they—-and the gall of it all????
There is nothing to be done, as this last trillion dollar budget deal, opened the doors of contribution levels for the top 1%—–all the while it nullified or greatly reduced the effectiveness of the conservative groups around the country and there use of hard work to overcome the spending of money by the elite politicians who can now surely buy their way into these positions. The 1% will buy more in advertising on TV & Radio, with mailings and things money can buy in the marketing of their corruption. So between the increased in donated money being made available to politicians and the Banking provision—making the tax payer foot the bill if something goes wrong—–this budget was a sweet deal for the government and the politician—with government growing as it wants and the politicians have their power, control and security in the position—all the while the FED sucks the life blood out of the economic/monetary system with banks free to wheel and deal as they want.
So! What is the good guy to do?
Here are a couple of things that you may want to think about and consider:
(A) Cut back on discretionary spending—-saving as much as possible. Do not put your extra pennies in the bank—-they pay no interest and will only steal the pennies as the economy disintegrates and/or they think they need it—as they did in Cyprus.
It is said at the request and design of the Wall Street’s biggest banks, Republican lawmakers had inserted a line in this Trillion Dollar budget deal that repealed one of the signature provisions of the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform bill. This provision, Section 716, required banks to put portions of their riskier derivatives businesses into holding companies. The idea was to separate some of the bank’s riskier trading in things like credit default swaps and commodities into a separate entity not insured by US taxpayers. But banks have balked at the rule since it was passed in 2010. Citigroup, one of the country’s largest banks, wrote a measure repealing the provision, and with help from Jamie Dimon who runs JP Morgan’s Bank, managed to get Republicans to include it in the final budget bill—so you the tax payer are on the hook.
(B) Buy gold, silver or something that will increase in value with time.
(C) Adjust your life style and pull your children out of public school.
(D) Support only local groups that you can influence—-give no money to the political party’s state wide or nationally—support only people you can trust.
(E) Write your elected officials (at all levels) telling him/her you no longer trust them nor do you trust the government and that you have started to withdraw your trust in them starting immediately with no more $$$$ for starters—-also withdraw your money (the little that you have left) from the economy—no spending on extra’s and goodies —–find your own local group of people that you can trust and invest your time and money there.
Government cannot function without money—if government finds the middle class will no longer fund government through their reduction in spending and participation—our voices may become just a little louder and carry more weight—-having the ability to inject proper principles into the system with a change in direction and some new paths opening up. This path of debt and socialism we are on will not, cannot work——we must force a close down of government—–by shutting off the money we contribute and put into the economy—-else we can expect nothing but the same as in the past, allowing the Progressive Psychopath to work slowly in killing the people and the system—causing much pain. All co-operations with this government must stop—-in peaceful protest—–the politicians must be made aware of the fact that we do not trust them——this fight is about to turn into something ugly and a serious battle for the culture and the Christian American way of life——and I paraphrase Winston Churchill “We must never give up.”
We Shall See
In Otto Scott’s book “Robespierre” copyright 1974— on page 169—–it has this sentence:
“Like many young men they subconsciously confuse education with character.”
Scott is obviously talking about the young men in late 1700’s France with Robespierre and the French Revolution. This same confusion I think is ramped in today’s culture. We have in today’s Colleges and Universities a twisting of what is to make-up the young man’s character in that education as if the educational process will turn out fine upright citizen even as they are filling their intellect and minds with axioms of falsehood that hinge on some Socialistic unethical guide without a Godly standard—-&—-with no good in their motive. This twisting of the young man’s mind and his corrupted character is complete when he is convinced there is no God and he really does not want a soul to worry about—–thinking nothing of Heaven or Hell but only “Self”.
The teaching of our children the right and wrongs of life is of course something that is wanted and needed but to apply this type of needed education to what Scott is talking about on page 169 is not the correct context in explaining what he meant and what I am about to say.
We have in today’s world an education that has corrupted the younger generation over the last 100 years—–and with each passing year taken the young minds into ever darker regions of no understanding—without God and this is what had happened to the young French men in that period. They confused their education with a righteous character—all the while using their education to corrupt the culture until it turned into chaos of head removal by guillotine—-they did not have the needed character.
Information is the passing of intellect to the young as they sit in the class room or some setting of learning——it is or has to do with the head only——it will never or few times be an element of personal concern and will but few times be an activity of the heart conveying the righteous motive in understanding connections of life and God. The young will become Lions in the jungle of society thinking nothing is wrong with greed on Wall Street or Oral sex is not sex in the White House——as President Clinton taught the youth.
We have this in Proverbs 16:12
“It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.”
No president is allowed to establish his rule in unrighteousness.
“…Confusing education with character.”——-is dangerous in that it misleads the young into thinking he or she is right in going in some direction because it has been taught in school—all the while they and the culture are a drift in a sea of misinformation with misdirection. Of all the seminars and different groups that are formed to teach the supposed right-ness of a direction few have understood education of the mind and changing of the character from something that is misguided to a righteous direction—-is a process not possible once corrupted. You cannot educate the soul of a corrupted individual on to the righteous path—–this fact is becoming more oblivious today as we hear the progressive lie and cheat in almost every facet of a government function. The civil magistrate cannot function without some ethical guidance, without some standard of good and evil. If those standards are corrupted it is impossible to correct that misdirection of the individual without the Holy Spirit and God having mercy on that individual or that culture. You will not make or force some change on the progressive or person that is corrupt—–you will not educate the person on to a righteous path unless God wills it and with the individual following God’s lead with a changed heart/character.
This is why education is useless read this carefully: Psalms 11:3 which tells us.
“If the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
If you have once destroyed the foundations—–forget the rest and teaching anything to these corrupted minds is impossible and will not help in making any corrections through a watered down education—-the corrupted/destroyed foundations have you on a path to Sodom & Gomorrah.
We Shall See——if we have a confused character and/or will we search for God.
“The real cause of the disaster is the very financial structure that was fashioned by legislators and guided by regulators; they together created a cartel that, like all other monopolistic concoctions is playing mischief with its victims.”
Quoted from; “The Great Banking Scandal” (1990) Hans Sennholz
You will note I was quoting something written in 1990—almost 25 years ago. And we all know that was well before the sophistication of today’s Wall Street—with its high power computerized buying and selling. It is troubling to know, debt was there (1990) but small and certainly manageable when comparing it today debt. How we continue to allow debt to pile on is beyond me. We have a blotted government that is well outside the guide lines of the “Constitution” and a debt that will do away with the Middle Class and destroy the country.
A serious investigation would surely expose the close knit co-operation of the legislators and it would also indicate a working together of the groups to force the deception of and deceit in what was created by that body politic. Government, Wall Street and the Federal Reserve, all colluded is varies market places and varies schemes creating bubble after bubble—in order to make maximum profit for the FED, for the Banksters, and the Bureaucrats in the top slots (all getting bonuses) all the while forcing more and more money into the system through debt. The Government wanted to spend money, assuring re-election of everyone as they bought votes, the FED wanted more money in the system causing more debt with interest paid by that government borrowing—-one spend while the other collected interest off the poor tax payer—who is paying all the bills. The Bankers kept everything running, all money going through the bank always making their percentages with their factional banking—–creating much money out of nothing.
Here are a few numbers to get your attention:
40 years ago total debt (government, business, mortgage, and consumer debt) was a mere $2.2 Trillion—-today it stands at $59.4 Trillion.
The U.S. Government is staring at total obligations of $115 trillion.
Derivatives contracts around the world $710 Trillion (risky and dangerous)
This is no joke folks the FED is driven by debt and will never allow the country to get out of that debt—–they will be out of business—if debt goes away. Something must change or the country goes down the tube.
We Shall See—-Don’t you think?
Charles G. Finney (1792-1875) was an effective teacher at Oberlin theological department for 40 years. (1835- 1875) Robert Fletcher’s article “The Pastor Theology of Charles G. Finney” nails the problems of today as he tells what Finney taught his young preachers.
Fletcher writes of Finney;
“The pastor and his flock had reciprocal duties, according to Finney. The pastor must demean himself so as to deserve the confidence of the people, giving himself wholly to the work and avoid every irrelevant engagement, feeding the flock with truth well digested, warning them publicly and privately, praying for and with them and bring everything into the light of the law of God.”
Strange talk and have you heard any of this type of responsibility cast on the Pastor today. He is successful when he (the pastor) grows the church in numbers, with weekly donations always growing—with seat filled and total dollars collected increasing—-paying the overextended, church mortgage. When was the last time any Pastor thought it his duty to teach hard truth in God’s law to his flock—even as the Pastor sees the culture deteriorate under his feet.
It is hard for any human being in these times not to understand the effects of sin on the culture. The human race has been told for centuries. Plato said:
“The price good men pay for in-difference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”
Anything not understood regarding Plato’s statement should cause some concern for “We the People”.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon said:
“Of two evils choose neither.”
Spurgeon’s quote should solve any problem of today’s political voting arena—–we have for years chosen between the lessors of the two evils even as we have selected our person to represent us in the halls of government—those moves have proven to be devastating to the culture——as evil continued to march on.
Righteous, God fearing men, need not apply as the selection process begins here in Pa. November 4th, 2014. The party only wants people that can win and/or be elected—-whatever that means—Righteousness is of no consideration—when applying.
We Shall See—-in less than a few weeks (Nov. 4th, 2014) who is to lead Pennsylvania for the next 4 years.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881) wrote: “If God does not exist, everything is permitted.”
The truth of the statement cannot be questioned—-at least I don’t think so.
If God does exist then compromise with a branding of some sort of Conservative leaning cannot in fact be the way to a truth because God allows anyone to attempt to identify truth, which must be the starting point. Anything said, should be considered as what is the truth rather than some position of a compromising agenda. It is this truth of the matter that should be hinged to a higher authority if that truth or falsehood is to be judged or a situation resolved.
Truth and understanding has a given wisdom from which one draws conclusions—placing the issue in a position of being a Conservative or Liberal mode for judgment will answer nothing but excite debate as nothing of truth can be exposed. We find this back and forth daily with talk radio never coming to an answer—only a constant stating of the problem, and with that rehashing of the problem there is an expecting of some answer to appear. If could almost be claimed they are not even stating the real problem nor I dare say—–they do not want to find an answer.
The first and most important question is: Does God exist?
If “NO” He does not—then I say have at it—all is permitted.
This answer to that question—- and HE does exist—–will force you to do away with all labels and name calling replacing all debate with the question—What is God’s truth?
I care not where you stand but tell me your truth.
We Shall See—-If anyone starts to see the light of God’s truth—–Labeling and Pigeon holing will solve nothing accept hide the fact you do or don’t—–believe there is a GOD—–and confuses much—we should be after God’s truth if in fact we think HE exists and HIS truth can be found.
Is it easy to fall from the rule of good men with intelligence, having religious convictions? To a group of few men trying to do good—–all the while those few good men think they are doing good as they cannot stopping the drift——nor can they focus on the complex issues of religious doctrine, with its connections, that makes a citizen and government righteous and work correctly. There is that drift away from religious connections for its citizens and government—that makes government not function, and from there, but an easy step into tyranny.
From that drift toward tyranny and ignorance—there is all types of evilness capable of being manifested within the social fabric. And with that drift—we will shortly become a militarized police state with its citizens falling into and/or being viewed not as citizens but enemy combatants. This type of separation into combatant classifications will have headings such as “Religious Fanatics”, “Conservatives with a Radical Political Direction”, and/or “Anti-Government Zealots”.
Is it easy to fall? I say “Yes” I watched it happen these last 50 years, even as I think this facet of deterioration in history and the culture has been going on since the early 1900’s—-over a 100 years.
I wish to isolate one small issue that I believe will grow in magnitude as the other parts of the social fabric come apart at the seams—-forcing moves in the direction of this to happen and that is an—– “Article V Convention” ——“Convention of the States” —–“Con-Con”. Hopefully one of those titles of the movement is correct and all understand of what I speak —-because—-regardless of name of the convention—-there is danger in it and having some type of Constitutional Amending Convention calling it what you want. We must not open the door for politicians to rewrite and destroy our Constitution.
Questions that need answering;
1/ Who is calling for Article V Convention?
This is an important question because it will, if researched, show who or what you might be getting into bed with and it might surprise many conservatives as to who wants this convention.
2/ Why are liberals calling for an Article V convention?
It might surprise most conservatives as to the number of Liberals and Progressives that favor the Article V convention—people like Rep. Nancy Pelosi,—-Professor of Law at Harvard Law School Lawrence Lessig,—-Law Professor at Texas A&M University’s School of Law Mary Margaret Penrose,—- Democratic Hawaii State Legislators,—–Texans United to Amend.
In fairness to these people and those groups mentioned—their motives maybe honorable even as they open the convention up to any number of amendments, having a possible confused direction and intention—although I doubt there is any confusion on their part. I for one would not want to guess or speculate as to want of righteousness on any liberal intentions.
3/ Who? If ask today, is going to represent you in such a convention?
Would it be someone with liberal or constitutional values—-or maybe the question should be—–Does that person have righteous intentions believing in “God” and “Biblical Principles”? I would think you want that type of person?
4/ Why would politician suddenly start following an amended Constitution after ignoring our current one for so long?
Someone will need to answer this question before I would go along with fooling around with our Constitution or any Article V convention.
5/ Why has the mainstream media largely ignored the push for an “Article V Convention”?
Surely the media must be in favor of the Liberal/Progressive element that has already signed on to this enterprise.
6/ Why would anyone want to gamble with the Constitution in this day and age with no righteous leadership in Harrisburg, PA. or Washington DC? An Article V convention would open the door for the Constitution to be completely rewritten.
Anyone that cannot see the corruption and deceit that is oozing from every crack of our government is blind and without vision to see that danger—as most politicians caring less for the people——looking to get re-elected their main thrust and occupation—-with getting rich their second interest—–as “We the People”—-&—“the Country”—- fall somewhere down at the bottom of the list that the politician thinks important.
The real solution is to enforce our Constitution, not amend it—-but we not only have corrupt politicians but a few cowards who “go along to get along”—–making up the rest of the government.
We Shall See—-shortly——Don’t you think?
