Freedom of Speech and Other Follies
I’m retired now, but back in my working days I had a strong desire to criticize the government for what it is doing to America, but I knew that certain topics were off limits for criticism for the very real reason that I could be fired from my job for criticizing the wrong person. So, when I retired it was like liberation day for me, I felt I had achieved true freedom of speech as promised to all citizens by the Constitution.
I was wrong.
Even though I could no longer be fired from my job for the simple reason that I no longer had a job, and my pension is untouchable (at least for now) I found out that the establishment has other ways to retaliate. What happened was that the four family house that I own in Pennsylvania was becoming just too much for me to handle, so I decided to sell it. The real estate agent told me that it would sell better if it had no building code violations on it, and since I had it inspected just a few years ago and the dozen violations that came up were mostly cleared up, I figured getting it inspected would be a breeze.
I was wrong again.
The building inspector came back with 95 building code violations.
Among the violations was one that stated that the fire place in one apartment had “to be inspected to make sure it was safe for use”, but the problem was, that the apartment has NO fire place!
Another violation stated that all apartment doors had to have 3 inch high letters so that they can be identified; again this would only be common sense for apartments to have some sort of indentification on them. The problem with this is that ALL apartments already had 3 inch high letters on their doors that were there for eleven years before the building inspector showed up; and were there while the inspector was doing his inspection!
Still another violation stated that one room in one apartment had to conform to the fire code (not all the apartments, just this one); so, it stated that a repair had to be made by removing the suspended ceiling, repair the ceiling above it, then REPLACE the suspended ceiling! This would make this the only room in the world with two ceilings! This left me wondering how I can hire a contractor to do this job without the contractor dying from laughter.
Another violation stated that a working light in the hallway had to be “VERIFIED” that it in fact worked. Maybe the building inspector had a broken finger that day and he could not flip the switch. But this earned me two building code violations for a light that worked perfectly OK.
Then the building building code inspector said that I have to have a fire exrtinguisher in the basement, and of course, there already IS a fire extinguisher in the basement!
I could go on about this funny stuff with this code inspector, but the bottom line here is that this house I want to sell, can not sell because nobody in his right mind will buy a house with 95 building code violations on it even though it is clear that some funny stuff is going on here. I mean, I thought about hiring the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland to do these repairs because no other contractor is qualified to fix a non-existant fire place, but I could not find the Mad Hatters contact information.
So, I decided to file a law suit. I talked to two Pennsylvania lawyers but they both said I have no case. I then went to the District Court and they said they don’t handle stuff like this, go to the District Attorney. I went to the DA and they said they don’t handle stuff like this, go the Civil Court; the Civil Court does not return phone calls.
What is going on here is similar to what went on in the South before 1950 where the KKK controlled the courts, the police and the politicians and so African Americans were denied many of their Constitutional rights. Well, Pennsylvania is a far left state and the mayor of Easton PA is even more far left than DeBlasio of New York City fame. In fact, Pennsylvania is so far left that a permit is required by its citizens if they want to move from one house to another. So, abuse of citizens who don’t follow the party line is the result of this system. And since my own politics are very far Right, in fact, so far Right that I ride around in a car with a 3′ x 4′ sign on top of it that says “Government Betrays You, We the People Must Govern”.. So, a far left government who controls the courts is retaliating against ME for critizing the far left government.
Abuse of citizens right here in America has also happened in other places. For example, in 2012 just before the presidential election, the IRS was abusing Tea Party organizations by denying them 501c3 tax except status, but left wing groups had no such problems. Another case of citizen abuse is going on right now in the state of Oregon in which Steven and Dwight Hammond are being harrased by the government by having access roads and water rights blocked by the government that wants to get them off their land. Recently one supporter, Robert Finicum was killed by government agents. In the same area, the government has also arbitrarily revoked grazing rights of other ranchers and even flooded their land.
There are other cases of government abuse of citizens–like the case of Cliven Bundy and the massacre at Waco, Texas where 74 people were killed. If this abuse of citizens continues it can only lead to civil unrest. But maybe this is what the government wants so that it can declare martial law and impose a dictatorship–which may be the real goal here.

My dear friend:

We grew-up together an we shared a lot of good times and bad times together, but threw it all you are still my friend, your like family, and I will always help you out if I can.

After sharing a lot of Face Book posts, I realized that you are a communist and thats OK with me, if that’s what you believe in, then go for it. At first I thought we could exchange a lot of political stuff and have some fun with it. But when you said that “I am sick and should go to the hospital because of my political ideas” it stunned me into a cold silence.

Yes, I know I am very right wing, I mean Rush Limbaugh looks like a liberal compared to me, but good buddy, you have crossed a very dangerous line. You are now in with people like the Russian Communists who believed that people that don’t agree with them are sick and they really did send them to mental hospitals where they were injected with all sorts of chemicals. But they were the lucky ones, others were sent to concentration camps where they were worked to death, or they were starved to death; others were simply shot dead. Read Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn book “The Gulag Archipelago”, he survived the concentration camps and told the world all about it. You should really read that book, it’s the end game of what you’re thinking.

A final tally of what the Russian Communists did was to kill abut 20 million people, the Chinese Communists killed about 50 million, The Cubans who have a smaller population killed 17,000 people because they did not support the ideas of Fidel Castro. Then there was Pol Pot who killed about a million in Cambodia. The list goes on and on with South America and Africa with their communist activists. Here in America we have people like Bill Ayrs who was caught on video tape saying that “we have to kill 25 million Americans” then he went on to talk about how we should kill them and how to get rid of the bodies.

So good buddy, that’s the company you are keeping these days. How you got there, I don’t know: but I guess the reason is that communists hate Americans. But the reasons for this hatred are based on lies. For example, the communists say that America is a basically bad country, founded in slavery and got rich by stealing from poor people.

I say this is not true because before 1776, it’s not that America had slavery, it’s that the whole world had slavery and America inherited this system from the rest of the world. But America was unique here because America stood up and said slavery was wrong, and after they beat the British Empire (then the most powerful nation on Earth), they went about ending slavery. They wrote the Constitution that said:

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.

In the first Contential congress, a bill was presented to end slavery, but it lost by one vote. But the 49% who wanted to end to slavery, fought on until they ended slavery in the Northern States in 1805, then  with the Civil War and 600,000 deaths they finally ended slavery in America and held the Union together. Then in 1965 they ended the Jim Crow laws in the South. Around 1930, the Sufergets came along and won voting rights for women. Then came the Stone Wall rebellion that gained respect and many rights for Gay people. You see, liberty is a process, it was not gained all at once, it came over time and this process is still going on, women have a way to go and so do African Americans, but it all started with the American Constitution, that was the guiding principal, and it’s getting the job done. This is what makes America exceptional, we were in the vanguard to end slavery and start the march to freedom.

I know that you communists, Democrats, liberals and progressives think we should help the poor, but what you don’t get is that we do help the poor. Since 1965 with the “Great Society” that president Johnson started we have spent over 20 trillion dollars to help the poor. All those programs you said that were around when we were kids are still in place, and in fact have had benefits added to them. There are still food stamps being given out, there are also subsidiaries for housing, heat allowances,  welfare checks are still going out and the poor are getting free cellphones. The poor are getting all they need, the only thing you can add to these programs are a limo and a European vacation. The reason there are still poor people around is that you just can not help people who will not help themselves. The commies are just trying to make America look bad by saying we have to help the poor, when we so clearly do.

When ever there is a disaster like an earthquake anywhere in the world like Haiti or Peru, America is there with the Red Cross and the Army sending in supplies. No other country helps earthquake victims like America does, but yet you say American is a bad country.

Good Buddy, you say I should open my mind, well I did open my mind, I listened to MSNBC, CNN and the other commie channels, and the conclusion I came to is that they are not honest, they do not give you all the news, they only give you their side of the news, and that side is just not the whole story.  I saw what the communists are doing to America and it is wrong. You are on the wrong path, you have to wake up and stop listening to MSNBC, maybe you should watch Fox News a little, get the other side of the news, then make up your mind.

Communist countries always have ration cards, you needed a ration card for everything, food, clothes, furniture, everything. Some people like the East Germans risked their lives to escape to the west and a lot of them were shot by border guards. You should think some more about your communist ideas, and stop drinking the Kool Aid.

But if you still think that communism is the way to go, then I think you should read up on some history. In communist Russia, the government could and did knock on peoples doors and had them meet people they never met before and told them they will be living with them from now on, if people objected to this, they were sent to the hospital.

I’ll be waiting for you.

Your friend.

 

 

 

What Would General Patton Say?

 Essays  Comments Off on What Would General Patton Say?
Dec 182015
 

Caution: the following essay contains strong language, if you can’t take it, read no more. Go away, NOW.

While watching the latest Republican and Democratic debates on TV with the candidates debating security and terrorism, the thought came to me that what if the famous World War II General George S. Patton were there and what would he say to them, it may have sounded something like this:

“You pathetic pack of wimps, what’s this crap about you all running for president, none of you (except the Donald), can’t even win a place on a kindergarden ball team. I fought a war against the Japanese and the Germans that attacked us with a combined man power total of a couple of million men and I fought back and beat the hell out of them with our allies. But you butt wipes can’t even beat a small bunch of illiterate camel jockeys. You have to pull your heads out of your a$# and realize what war is really about. War is not pretty, your humanity is always the first casualty of any war, you have to wake up and realize that.

You cry about collateral damage, well in the big one, we deliberately bombed cities with people living there. We fire bombed the German city of Dresden, we bombed Tokyo another civilian city, and many other civilian cities and we didn’t shed a tear about it, because we knew what war is about and we did what had to be done to win and establish peace.

All you numb nuts can do is stand there and argue about privacy rights and say “that’s not who we are”. Well political correctness never won a war, it can’t because in war you have to get down and dirty and do what ever it takes to win because if you loose, you and your entire families will be dead or be slaves for the rest of your lives.

You butt wipes can’t even realize that this thing you call the internet is a great intelligence gathering tool that can be used to easily find out all kinds items that can be used to fight an effective war against our enemies. You have to learn that you have to hit the enemy any-way you can, any time you can and hit them as hard as you can. So, stop asking those stupid questions about the internet, just use it and shut-up about it.

You jerks actually want to let those murdering camel jockeys to come to America and live here? How stupid can you get? In my day we rounded-up all the Nazi enemies living here and sent them packing back to Germany. We were going to do the same with the Japs living here, but they would not take them back, so we locked them up, and couldn’t have cared less about them. But you jerks want to take our enemies in and give them welfare checks, food stamps, social security and free medical. You’re all completely insane; totally and absolutely insane (except the Donald).

In war, only the smartest and meanest win, since you all (except the Donald) are neither, you better grow a beard and start wearing berkas, because Muslim or dead you are certainly going to be. Or y0u better get used to a life without music, dancing, movies or beer, because thats what your going to live like when the camel jockeys take over.

 We won World War II because we fought a war of annihilation that only ended with an unconditional surrender that was followed up with an occupation and total disarmament of the defeated enemy.

That’s how you win a war, that’s how it always was and still is today, but you morons just don’t realize it.

Back then in my time, if anybody in our entire nation gave our sworn enemy 150 billion dollars and the right to develop nuclear weapons, they would have been court marshaled and sent to an army firing squad.

You people are too crazy for me to waste any more of my time on. So I will say good-by to you losers. I’m sick of looking at you, and I hope none of you make it to the White House.

As for you Mr Trump, can you please come with me, I want to talk to you”.

Note:

World War II lasted four years, the politically correct war in Afghanistan has been raging for 15 years and still there is no end in sight….Need I say more?

What is Hijrah?

 Essays  Comments Off on What is Hijrah?
Nov 202015
 

Large scale mass migrations become invasions and this actually appears to be a hijrah ………this is NOT going to end well.

It appears the policies of the liberal socialist leaders in Europe and the US do not want to keep these lands from being overrun. Why???
I couldn’t figure out why other Arab countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, etc.) weren’t taking in refugees, so I started digging.
Hijrah is jihad by emigration. It means moving to a new land in order to bring Islam there and is considered in Islam to be a holy and revered action. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance, and whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah.” (4:100) So if a Muslim dies in the process, that’s essentially the same as being a suicide bomber, his reward is automatic. This explains the great eagerness to undertake such a perilous journey.
Muhammad and his followers emigrated from Mecca to Yathrib/Medina in 622 CE. It was there that he became a military leader. This is where all the commands to commit violence against unbelievers originate from. It’s important to note that the Islamic calendar marks this as the beginning of Islam.
This current massive hijrah was announced last January although few paid the announcement much attention. A supporter (or member) of ISIS uploaded a document in Arabic that urged Muslims to get to Lybia for its proximity to southern Europe and for the important tactical value of its illegal immigration circuits to facilitate infiltration of European cities (“It has a long coast and looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat”).
In February, transcripts of telephone intercepts published in Italy said ISIS was threatening to send 500,000 migrants as a “psychological weapon” against Europe. The Italian Minister for the Interior, Angelino Alfano, said at the time, “If the militias of the Caliphate advance faster than the decisions of the international community how can we put out the fire in Libya and stem the migration flows? We are at risk of an exodus without precedent.”
Also in February, the Turkish intelligence service warned police that up to 3,000 trained jihadists were seeking to cross into Turkey from Syria and Iraq and then travel through Bulgaria and Hungary into western Europe.
From Syria, to Hungary, then into the rest of Europe. Sound familiar?
In May, a Libyan government adviser warned that Islamic State operatives were being “smuggled to Europe in migrant boats.” ISIS is profiting from the human trafficking trade, forcing boat owners to hand over their profits or be killed. Some ISIS operatives are already sheltered in safe houses in the south of the Europe. Groups of men, 17 to 25, from Palestine and Syria, cross into Bulgaria and from there move into the rest of the EU. A former Al Qaeda double agent told the BBC that he knew of two Egyptian brothers who reached Italy from Libya, accompanied by men who were “deeply religious and fluent in Italian and French.”
Go watch the videos of those “refugees” again. How many of the “refugees” are 17-25 year old men?
If that doesn’t convince you, we already know terrorists are coming through with the waves of refugees: a week ago five men were arrested attempting to cross the Bulgarian-Macedonian border with Islamic State propaganda, specific Jihadists prayers, and decapitation videos on their phones. They had been posing as refugees. UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage warned: “I fear we face a direct threat to our civilization if we allow large numbers of people from that war torn region into Europe.”
Other Muslim countries are not “taking in” these “refugees” because this is a hijrah into Europe. This is no humanitarian crisis. It is an invasion. Its goal is to transform Europe: overtax its economies, tear down its wealthiest nations, re-draw the demographics and, of course, the culture.

Democratic Debate and Other Follies

 Essays  Comments Off on Democratic Debate and Other Follies
Oct 162015
 

The big news about the Democratic debate is that Hillary Clinton came out of the closet and admitted she is a progressive. I know that to most people this is no big deal, but this confession is important because it officially establishes that the Democratic Party is going to openly push its socialist agenda more aggressively. This will either knock them out of politics entirely, or if they are successful, wreck the entire economy like socialism always does.

Also noteworthy is the fact that Bernie Sanders also admitted that he is a progressive as well as admitting many times that he is also a socialist, this establishes the fact that a progressive and a socialist are the same sort of stupidity. But to take this full cycle, it has to be realized that socialism is really just a sanitized type of communism.  This economic system provides people who work hard for a better life, and lazy people who do not want to work, with the same income, so it does not matter if people work hard or not; so it’s just not  worth it for people to work and society falls apart. Everybody knows this, except the Democrats.

I know, this theory may sound way out to some people, I mean, how can the Democrats go communist right here in America, the land where capitalism is ground into the history of the nation and the majority of people agree that capitalism is the way to go. Well, it has to be realized that the Democrats have been pushing communism for many long years, but have not been calling it communism, instead they call it “income equality”, or “social justice” or something else just as insane; but the problem here is that many people have come to agree with this as long as it is not called communism. The crazy thing about this is the fact that they are getting way with this.

Since the Democrats are going down the communist path, consider that communists believe that censorship absolutely must be part of a society. So, look at what they did in the debate. they talked about Bengazi, but they censored out anything about the lies Hillary Clinton made about the attack being caused by a video. Also, they talked about the need to create more jobs, but they censored out the fact that Bill Clinton (a Democrat) sent millions of jobs to other countries by his signing into law treaties like NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) and the WTO (World Trade Organization), then there is also the fact that Bill Clinton also gave China special trade status. It has been estimated that between  5 million to 20 million jobs have been lost by these actions of Bill Clinton.

The Democrats created the loss of jobs problem and are not mentioning this, but are instead claiming that they are the only ones that have a cure for this problem. It takes a total lack of morality to do this.

They also censored out the 18 trillion debt we have, 8 trillion added by Obama. Since Hillary said that she will add to the success of Obama, which most likely means another 8 trillion in debt for the nation. This means a debt of 26 trillion. But we will not make it to such a debt because most economists have said the economy will collapse when the debt reaches around 22 trillion, or sooner.

There is also the complete failure of the policy Hillary and Obama put together in the Mid East, and just about every where else in the world.

As one last proof, think about how the Democrats have been saying for the last 7 years that the Republicans have to “stop obstructing” and “get out of the way”. Well, Bernie Sanders took this to a whole new level by saying with a snarly look on his face “you Republicans had better stop obstructing or your going to get fired”. This surely is not a democratic way of thinking, in fact this is the way a dictator thinks, as is typical in a communist country.

If you look at the history of communists since 1917, it can be easily seen that they all did anything they could  to get rid of opposition groups like sending them to hospitals for the insane or just a regular jail, or mostly they just shot them.

So, basically, the Democratic Debate was just another propaganda stunt, but what else could you expect from CNN a socialist network and a bunch of socialists running for president.

It’s time to take a stand and stop this madness before it does any more damage to America.

GOP Where Are You? (part 2)

 Essays  Comments Off on GOP Where Are You? (part 2)
Sep 262015
 

The good news is that John Boehner has resigned, the bad news is that this changes nothing.

Have you ever wondered why it seems that a lot of things just do not change in government as administration after administration comes and goes. John Boehner is a good example of why this is so. You see, he is registered as a Republican while he clearly is not a Republican, he is clearly a Democrat as proved by his every action. Right after the mid-term election, when Republicans won a majority in both the House and Senate, John Boehner went right ahead and supported the vote to fund a budget that was written by Democrats. He also supports Common Core, abortion, Obama Care and the Iranian Nuke Deal, all of these are issues that are supported by Democrats. The reason he does this is because he is a Democrat who lies to the American people by saying to them that he is a Republican, while his voting record proves that he is clearly a Democrat.

If it was just John Boehner that was doing this, then it’s no big deal, Boehner is gone, end of problem. Not so, because the Republican party has so many Democrats who have infiltrated its ranks that it is very difficult to pass any real Conservative legislation. Unless it’s just a show vote.

And lets not forget that it was Boehner who said flat out, that impeaching Obama is off the table; and his Democratic supporters openly supported him in this with the help of Democrats in the Republican party. Impeaching Obama is impossible. Not even talking about it is allowed.

Some people have ignored this and even laughed about it by saying “Oh, they’re just RINOS” meaning “Republican In Name Only”. But this is not funny anymore, America is sinking fast, financially, socially, militarily and just about every other way you can imagine. America does not even have any control over it’s own borders; this is threatening to change American culture itself.

Many Republicans who are actually Republicans, are proud to say that they have a majority in the House and Senate. Not so. If you count the Democrats who are lying about being Republicans, then the Republicans are a minority in both houses. This is why they can not pass anything that has a conservative look to it.

The Democrats have control of Congress and are well on there way to achieving their ultimate goal. That is a dictatorship controlling all of America. Does this sound extreme to the point of being stupid. Think about this; remember when the Democrats (including the President) were saying to the Republicans, “stop obstructing” and “get out of the way, let us adults decide things”. Well, by getting the Republicans out of the way, what is left but government solely by the Democrats. i.e. Dictatorship of the Democrat Party.

But the well laid plans of the Democratic Party are being threatened by the current crop of contenders for the Presidents office. I mean, there are some real Conservatives running for office (just a few RINOS are among them). AND voters are actually supporting these Conservatives, maybe because they are afraid of a nuclear armed Iran. Also, 18 trillion dollars of debt that is well on its way to bankrupting America is a cause of serious concern. The Democrats strongly support this crazy debt and a nuclear armed Iran because they think that like during the Great Depression of the 1930s when it was declared that capitalism failed and so they were able to enact may socialist programs pushed by a dictator like president. Maybe the Democrats are tired of waiting for their dictatorship and want to speed things up. Sure this will cause a lot of pain and suffering among the American people, but to the Democrats it seems to be worth it.

The Republicans have a lot of house cleaning to do, the sooner the better.

God speed Donald Trump or Carly Fiorina, we need either one of you, or both.

God Overruled

 Essays  Comments Off on God Overruled
Jul 172015
 

This essay is about gay people and religion, these are both explosive issues, so if you have a closed mind; read no more and go away.

If your still here, the first thing you have to realize is that most Christians believe that God created all living creatures, therefore, he created gay people and straight people. This means that we are all Gods children and we should realize this and start respecting each other.

With that being said.

As the circus that once was the American government keeps rolling on with scandal after scandal; a new act has come on the scene due to the mania of the government to control and regulate everything and everyone under the sun. Now, the Supreme Court of the United States has extended its authority over God.

The issue at hand is if God has the authority to define marriage as between one man and one woman, with the American Supreme Court clearly giving itself authority over God to decide matters they think God is not authorized to.

Or so they think!

Because of this anti-American government we now have, we have gone from a free county to a place where everybody has to ask the government for permission to do anything. In Easton Pennsylvania, if a citizen wants to move from one house to another house, they need a permit from the government, and they have to pay for it. Even for the most minor repairs on a persons house, they need a permit from the government. Everywhere people are becoming more in need of government permission to do anything, anywhere.

Men fought and died so that America can be a free country, but it is clearly no longer a free country. The government controls the schools, banking, hospitals and is everyday taking more control of every industry it can get it’s dirty hands on. The government even spies on every Americans phone and email accounts. America today is Joseph Stalins dream come true. Total control. The reason for this is that an institution like government naturally attracts con-artists and people suffering from a “domination psychosis”, better know as “control freaks”. Efforts have been made to control these people, like the Constitution, but they just keep showing up and causing problems anyway.

This is the reason they now think, they can stand in judgement of God himself.

Thousands of years ago God said that marriage is between one man and one woman. Many people just believed that this is natural law. But now, the Supreme Court of the American dictatorship has stood in judgement of God himself. They decided that God has no standing in their own corrupted legal system and they fully believe that they can overrule God and decide if they will allow Gods law to stand.

They think they can rule on the sacred law of marriage that the church has held holy for three or four thousand of years. This invasion of the church is illegal and unconstitutional by any meaning. But the Supreme Court does not care about what is legal or what is Constitutional, they do not care about what is moral, the only thing they are concerned with is that they now think they are God and can rule over anything they please.—-Sick people.

Marriage is Gods law. Government can not even comment on it, and certainly can not decide any code of conduct or rules within the church.

Or, look at it this way. The Constitution of the United States of America has never been nullified or dissolved, so it is still the law of the land, and in the first amendment it states clearly:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”.

But yet government employees, who are called justices of the peace, are performing marriages all the time. Only a priest or pastor can perform a marriage and it must be performed in a church, not a town hall. But the government has clearly taken over this holy sacrment. They also decided that they can dissolve a marriage by laws they passed with regard to divorce. This is all clearly unconstitutional because it is the establishment of a government religion.

Regardless of what the biased liberal news media says, America is a nation committed to freedom and liberty for all its citizens, this is why slavery was abolished, it is why women were given the right to vote around 1920, its why gay people are getting many rights that were before denied them. Freedom in America is a process, not something that happened in a snap. But you cannot take away somebody’s rights while giving rights to somebody else, and this is what the Supreme Court has done. They could have given gay people in a Civil Union the same rights to inheritance, insurance and healthcare so as to be equal to straight people, since this was the main grievance gay people had. This would have respected the right of christians to have the holy sacrament of marriage preserved as is their right. But no, the Supreme Court has to show they rule over all of heaven and earth…..Sick SOB’s.

Two thousands years ago when Jesus Christ was killed and the Jews got blamed for it, it’s worthwhile to note that the Jews did not kill Christ. It was the politicians who killed Him, the Jewish people loved Him because He helped them whenever he could. The politicians convicted Him in an illegal trial, and it was the politicians who packed a public hearing with their supporters in front of Pontius Pilate to sentence Him to death. The Romans were just a tool used by the politicians. Today, with what the politicians are doing, it’s clear that they are killing the legacy of Christ, just because they can’t stand it when somebody  has authority over them……Sick people.

An interesting take on this is a story that says; “Satan is an angel who rebelled against God and was thrown out of heaven. He is now waging war against those who obey God’s commandments”. This is exactly what the Supreme Court of the United States is doing.

Those vile, disgusting creatures of the Supreme Court are hand in hand with Satan himself, they belong in a deeper, darker hell than the hell that Satan now lives in. May they go there and stay there for all eternity so that people will not have to see or hear their stupidity again. They have no morals, no legal standing, no right to rule over God.

Statement On the Supreme Court Decision

 Essays  Comments Off on Statement On the Supreme Court Decision
Jun 282015
 

The Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that established homosexual marriage as national policy is unambiguously wrong on at least three crucial levels: Moral, Constitutional, and Structural.

On the Moral Level
The Court’s decision violates the moral standards specifically enumerated in our founding documents. The Declaration of Independence sets forth the fundamental principles and values of American government, and the Constitution provides the specifics of how government will operate within those principles. As the U. S. Supreme Court has correctly acknowledged:

The latter [Constitution] is but the body and the letter of which the former [Declaration of Independence] is the thought and the spirit, and it is always safe to read the letter of the Constitution in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence.

The Declaration first officially acknowledges a Divine Creator and then declares that America will operate under the general values set forth in “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.” The framers of our documents called this the Moral Law, and in the Western World it became known as the Common Law. This was directly incorporated into the American legal system while the colonies were still part of England; following independence, the Common Law was then reincorporated into the legal system of all the new states to ensure its uninterrupted operation; and under the federal Constitution, its continued use was acknowledged by means of the Seventh Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Numerous Founding Fathers and legal authorities, including the U. S. Supreme Court, affirmed that the Constitution is based on the Common Law, which incorporated God’s will as expressed through “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.”

Those constitutional moral standards placed the definition of marriage outside the scope of government. As acknowledged in a 1913 case:

Marriage was not originated by human law. When God created Eve, she was a wife to Adam; they then and there occupied the status of husband to wife and wife to husband. . . . It would be sacrilegious to apply the designation “a civil contract” to such a marriage. It is that and more – a status ordained by God.

Because marriage “was not originated by human law,” then civil government had no authority to redefine it. The Supreme Court’s decision on marriage repudiates the fixed moral standards established by our founding documents and specifically incorporated into the Constitution.

On the Constitutional Level
The Constitution establishes both federalism and a limited American government by first enumerating only seventeen areas in which the federal government is authorized to operate, and then by explicitly declaring that everything else is to be determined exclusively by the People and the States (the Ninth and Tenth Amendments).

Thomas Jefferson thus described the overall scope of federal powers by explaining that “the States can best govern our home concerns and the general [federal] government our foreign ones.” He warned that “taking from the States the moral rule of their citizens and subordinating it to the general authority [federal government] . . . . would . . . break up the foundations of the Union.” The issue of marriage is clearly a “domestic” and not a “foreign” issue, and one that directly pertains to the State’s “moral rule of their citizens.” But the Supreme Court rejected these limits on its jurisdiction, and America now experiences what Jefferson feared:

[W]hen all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another.

By taking control of issues specifically delegated to the States, the Court has disregarded explicit constitutional limitations and directly attacked constitutional federalism.

On the Structural Level
The Constitution stipulates that “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a republican form of government” (Article IV, Section 4). A republican form of government is one in which the people elect leaders to make public policy, with those leaders being directly accountable to the people. More than thirty States, by their republican form of government, had established a definition of marriage for their State. The Supreme Court decision directly abridges the constitutional mandate to secure to every state a republican form of government.

To believe that the Judiciary is an independent and neutral arbiter without a political agenda is ludicrous. As Thomas Jefferson long ago observed:

Our judges are as honest as other men and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps.

Judges definitely do have political views and personal agendas; they therefore were given no authority to make public policy. The perils from their doing were too great. As Jefferson affirmed, the judges’ “power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.” He therefore warned:

[T]o consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. . . . The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal. The Constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the Judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please.

The Supreme Court’s decision is a direct assault on the republican form of government that the Constitution requires be guaranteed to every State.

The Road Ahead
The Supreme Courts decree on marriage will become a club to bludgeon the sincerely-held rights of religious conscience, especially of those in the several dozen States who, through their republican form of government, had enacted public policies that conformed to both the Moral Law and the traditional Common Law.

While the Supreme Court decision paid lip service to the rights of religious people to disagree with its marriage decision, history shows that not only does this acknowledgment mean little but also that it will be openly disregarded and ignored, particularly at the local level. After all, there are numerous Supreme Court decisions currently on the books – including unanimous Court decisions – protecting the rights of religious expression in public, including for students. Yet such faith expressions continue to be relentlessly attacked by school and city officials at the local and city levels. (See www.religioushostility.org for thousands of such recent examples.)

Even before this decision was handed down, numerous States were already punishing dissenting people of faith, levying heavy fines on them or closing their businesses – not because those individuals attacked gay marriage but rather because they refused to personally participate in its rites. These governmental actions were initiated by complaints of homosexuals filed with civil rights commissions – and all of this was already occurring without a Supreme Court decision on which they could rely. Now that such a decision does exist, expect a tsunami of additional complaints to be filed against Christian business owners, and both the frequency and the intensity of the penalties to be increased.

Now is the time to display stand-alone courage on the issue of marriage as well as the judicial activism of the Court – now is the time to stand up and be counted, regardless of whether anyone else stands with you. Now is the time for individuals to broadly voice support for traditional marriage (which will likely cause you to be verbally berated or attacked by its opponents) as well as for the rights of religious conscience of dissenters (which will cause you to be charged with defending bigots and haters). Good people can no longer be silent and allow themselves to be intimidated by the mean-spirited attacks that occur when you begin to speak out on this issue.

It will soon become obvious that this decision opened a Pandora’s Box that will initiate a series of policy changes affecting everything from hiring practices to college athletics, from non-profit tax-exempt status to professional licensing standards. So the battle is not over; it is literally just beginning. We have a duty to let our voice be heard.

Strikingly, duty was the character trait of Jesus. He loved us because it was the right thing to do; He went to the cross because it was the right thing to do; He forgave us because it was the right thing to do. It was His duty. Our Founders repeatedly praised that character trait, and noted the numerous spiritual blessings that came from its performance:

The man who is conscientiously doing his duty will ever be protected by that Righteous and All-Powerful Being, and when he has finished his work, he will receive an ample reward. Samuel Adams, SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION

All that the best men can do is to persevere in doing their duty . . . and leave the consequences to Him who made it their duty, being neither elated by success (however great) nor discouraged by disappointment (however frequent and mortifying). John Jay, ORIGINAL CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT, AUTHOR OF THE FEDERALIST PAPERS

The sum of the whole is that the blessing of God is only to be looked for by those who are not wanting in the discharge of their own duty. John Witherspoon, SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION

People of faith need to regain the concept of duty, and we would do well to adopt the motto that characterized the efforts of Founding Father John Quincy Adams: “Duty is ours, results are God’s.” Now is the time for people of faith to be silent no more.

No Justifiable Grievance

Freddy Gray died a few weeks ago and we still don’t know if he died as the result of an accident or if he was murdered or if the police van ride aggravated a pre-existing condition to the point of it being fatal. Despite this lack of knowledge about the fate of Freddy Gray, the black people of Baltimore burned down about 200 buildings and destroyed 150 cars looking for justice for Freddy Gray.

To start off this riot, the Mayor of Baltimore Maryland told an African American population:

“Those who want to do destruction, will be given space to do so”.

That was it. Party time, and the rioting and looting began.

After making this outrageous statement that caused massive damage to Baltimore, the Mayor then lied by saying she never said it (go to the video). It was also reported that she told the police to “stand down” and later was also reported to say “let them loot, it’s only property”. This is similar to a statement made by Mayor David Dinkins of New York City during the Crown Heights riots in August 1991.

It looks like African Americans feel aggrieved because of an injustice they have suffered. But while they did suffer injustice around 1960 and before that, they clearly are not suffering any injustice today.

There are always accusations of racism, but when it was reported in Baltimore that most of the city officials, including the Mayor, Police Chief and Attorney General are all black people, the racism charge got quiet. It was also revealed that half of the police officers involved in this case are black people also. Then it was said that the riot was caused by a of lack of opportunity, until it was realized that one billion eight hundred thousand dollars have been spent on the black people of Balitmore for education and anti-poverty programs. Nation wide about 20 billion dollars have been spent on black people for job training, education, housing and other anti-poverty programs. Then there is the Affirmative Action laws that give black people preference for jobs and education, or discrimination in favor of black people. So, the charge of lack of opportunity got quiet also.

Then there is the charge that black people cannot get justice in America anymore, but did anybody ask if O. J. Simpson got justice when he killed his wife Nicole?

It has also often been said that there is a war on black people, that young black men are being hunted down and killed by police; but yet more white people than black people are killed by the police. The last figures available state that 123 black people are killed by police, while there are over 300 white people killed by police on average.

The latest slogan is “Black Lives Matter” but since there were 2,600 black people killed by other black people in Detrioit and nobody objects to this, it could be said that black people don’t mind black people being killed as long as it’s black people doing the killing. But if a white person kills a black person, then the riots and looting begin. This is the same as when a black person uses the n—-r word as they often do in rap music, it’s OK, but if a white person uses the same word he looses his job, or his business and gets sued in court. A total double standard.

This is all a scam that’s going on all over America. It’s a well known, yet ignored fact that black people constitute 12% of the population, but yet produce 60% of the crime. They aspire to Gangster Rap music, the defiance, the glorification of crime and glorification of self destructive behavior. Besides, it’s cool to stick it to whitey. Because of this, black people distain education and jobs, they prefer a life of crime (the money is better).This is the reason that black people and the police always have conflicts, the police go where the crime is to keep it under control. Some people call this targeting black people, another myth.

The only reason poverty is not going away in the black community is because 72% of black children grow up without a father; the reasons for this vary, but in too many cases, the mother does not care about the kids, she’s only having them from different fathers for the welfare checks. The kids know this and so have no sense of family, and so look for family in street gangs. That’s where the crime comes from, along with lack of education that would give them a chance at a good job.

Then there is the biggest grievance of them all, black people have a long history of oppression in America, so they’re entitled. But look at it this way, 70 years ago Americans, Japanese and Germans were shooting each other to death and blowing each other to pieces during World War II. Today, we are all trusted allies and trading partners. In 1960 Viet Nam was a killing field of napalm and machine guns, today Viet Nam is also a trading partner. But black people are still complaining about slavery that ended 150 years ago even though 620,000 Americans died in the Civil War to end slavery. Then there is the Civil Rights Act, the voting in of a black President. Black people are 12% of the population but yet hold 40% of government jobs. Blacks today have it better than they ever had it.

Black people have no justifiable grievance, it’s long past time for black people to get over it, cut the B.S. and take care of their families, this is the only way poverty and crime will end in the Afircan American neighborhood.

OK Hillary, You’re On

 Essays  Comments Off on OK Hillary, You’re On

Hillary Clinton now has her campaign well under way for becoming the first woman president of The United States of America, and as expected, every Right Wing News organization has gone into full attack mode. But why do we have to hear them re-hash the same old scandals again. Look on the bright side; most politicians run for office promising that they are the real good guys, that they will fix all the wrongs in the world; then when they get into office, we find out they’re just another crook. But Hillary is different, she already has a bunch of scandals so she doesn’t have to prove she is one of the good guys (or gal), we already know who she is.

In fact, she has so many scandals that the process of fixing them by just letting them get old and forgotten has already taken place on some of her scandals; do you remember Whitewater, Trooper Gate and Nanny Gate? Google it. But lets not forget that her hubby Bill was impeached.

But just for the record, her not yet faded away scandals are the email account mess, Saudi Arabia donations (a known abuser of women, when Hillary champions women’s rights) and Benghazi. Remember her saying at a Benghazi hearing “at this point, what difference does it make”. Apparently she doesn’t know that when Americans are killed fighting for their country, it always matters.

Then there is the real scandal that’s so bad, that not even the crooks in Washington D.C. want to talk about it. Do you remember NAFTA, better known as “North American Free Trade Agreement” ? Or how about WTO, better know as the “World Trade Organization”. To figure these out you have to go way back in American history, way back to 2001 and even back to 1993, to the time when Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton and Monica Lewinsky were in the White House along with a lot of cigars and a saxophone.

What happened then was that on some days when Bill couldn’t get a hold of Monica and Hillary was out of the question; Old Billy Boy didn’t have anything to do, so he signed some trade treaties, namely the before mentioned NAFTA and the WTO. Bill said that these treaties will create American jobs, real good paying American jobs. But the opposite was true, it has been estimated that eight million American manufacturing jobs left America and are now in foreign countries. But you have to realize that it’s not just the manufacturing jobs, it’s the sub-contractor jobs, the support jobs like restaurants, hotels, advertisers. The real job loss could be as high as 16 million jobs.

This loss of eight to sixteen million jobs is so massive, (it’s the loss of corporation taxes, income taxes) that America does not have the money to effectively function anymore. This is why when Bill and Hillary first went into the White House, the national debt was only about 5 trillion dollars, now it’s 18 trillion and growing at an outrageous rate. Surely by the time Obama leaves office the national debt will be around 20 trillion dollars or more. Just the interest on this massive debt is about 241 billion dollars a year. Can you imagine other things that can be done with this money? The schools, hospitals, day care centers, roads, bridges that can be built with this money; instead it’s going to already very rich bankers.

But then again, it’s not just the millions of lost jobs, it politicians buying votes by giving away free cell phones, food stamps, rent free apartments etc. Clearly, there is no money for this, but they just have to buy votes.

The reason many people in the news media and government are not talking about this is because the corporations like this whole set-up. They are making massive profits by manufacturing goods in foreign countries with slave rate labor of about one dollar an hour, instead of the ten to fifteen dollars an hour that American workers need. Then they sell their goods to the high price market in America and Europe. Many business operations have come to accept the new normal that you just can not do business in America anymore and naturally outsource manufacturing to foreign countries. To add to this job loss, there is also high taxes and regulations on whats left of American manufacturing. And, lets not forget that the cost of all the unemployed workers are passed along to the few American workers that are left, not the fat cats that caused this problem by pushing Old Billy Boy into this; and who are making huge profits like you just cannot imagine.

This is the reason the Stock Market is  soaring to new heights every day and labor pay rates have been stagnant for the longest time.

But Billy Boy not being satisfied with the damage he did to America with NAFTA and the WTO, he also pushed to get China into the WTO and get a favored trade partner status for them to send exports to America. Since Hillary was married to Billy at this time, she surely knew about all this, but has she tried to fix this problem, NO. She just talks in vague terms like:

“I’m hitting the road to earn your vote”.

Sounds good, but it sure has nothing to do with correcting the damage that she and Billy Boy did to America.

It sure is a neat trick Hillary and Billy Boy played on America, first they caused the problem with NAFTA and the WTO, now they are presenting themselves as the ones that can fix all the wrongs in America. And they have their millions of brainwashed supporters that ignore all their crimes against America. It looks like Hillary’s solution for America’s problems are socialism with a cult like leader, namely, herself. This is what we already have, proving that this only damages the nation. It’s insanity to do this again with Hillary.
