My thoughts on the events in Texas

I’m sure that by now all of you have heard about what happened down in Texas.

Because of the fact that I happen to be a blogger, and do write about Politics, Freedom and Religion; I am going to offer my thoughts on this little event.

I’m all for freedom of speech the more the better I feel and personally I feel the answer to offensive freedom of speech is more freedom of speech to refute it. However, I will say this about one of the people who are involved in that event that happened down there in Texas where the shooting occurred —- Her name is Pamela Geller.

Pamela Geller is a Jewish conservative blogger from New York. Pamela Geller is also what some would refer to as an Agent Provocateur.

In other words, she is well-known for taunting Muslims and disrespecting their religion to garner a reaction from those of the radical Muslim sort. She does this so she can go back to her blog and say “see all of those Muslims? They want to murder people!”

Now, let me make this abundantly clear, I believe that no religion or race, color or creed or sex is above mocking or criticism. Furthermore, I believe that freedom of speech is a bedrock freedom that we enjoy in this country.

However, I believe that people like Pamela Geller who use the First Amendment in this country or the idea of freedom of speech to intentionally provoked those of the Islāmic faith to carry out acts of violence actually devalues our right to freedom of speech in this country and the protections of the First Amendment.

Having said that I believe that Pamela Geller should be most certainly charged with hate speech because of this event. So far, she has skated and not been charged of any such crimes because of her reliance on the First Amendment.

However, as we all know tonight there are two dead men in a parking lot and I truly believe that is because of Pamela Geller actions and personally as a Christian and as a Buchananite conservative; I believe Pamela Geller should be charged with hate speech because of the danger unnecessary placed on the police officers and the people at this event.

Pamela Geller unnecessarily put people’s lives at risk also she can have a little event that mocked Muhammad that my friends is not being a patriot that is being shameful.

It is for this reason that my blog does not link to her blog at all.

Her fight is not for freedom or even freedom of speech her whole thing is self promotion and her moronic attempt at self promotion caused two men to be shot and killed by the police and put a lot of people’s lives at risk, including the police officers who were trying to stop these two guys from killing people.

Again that’s not patriotism that is shameful in my humble opinion. 😡

Update: This is now a major story on Memeorandum

Mini-Movie: The frame job against Bashar al-Assad

This comes via Conservative-Headlines.com, and I know some people might not like it that I linked to these guys. Well, you know what? Tough! This video is a eye-opener; and I really do not even like Alex Jones for some very good reasons.

Just like Al-Qaeda, ISIS was created by the United States. Our biggest threat as Americans, is not terrorism; it is our own Government.

Why I am not blogging about Baltimore

I realize that some of you are most likely wondering, “Why is he not writing about the Baltimore situation?”

Because, quite frankly, I believe that is a total waste of time. Like I wrote about the local story here about the guy who got shot by the feds here, when they were trying to arrest him:

The man was armed with a hammer, he tried to attack a federal officer, and he got shot. Just another day in the big city. But, as you know, because he is black, as was the agent that shot him; because of the stuff happening everywhere now, the left and their media lap-dogs are going to exploit this, in hopes that there is another riot in Detroit.

Because that, is what marxists do. Marxists exploit stuff like this to disrupt the system. You watch and see, summer is coming and Detroit has a white mayor. You watch, another uprising is coming and the marxists will be in the middle of it.

Despite the fact that 3 of the officers involved in the situation in Baltimore were black, like here in Detroit where the fed agent was black, who shot the suspect — none of that matters. It is going to be portrayed as a evil white police force or in the case here in Detroit as a evil white Government killing blacks.

It is especially hazardous to one’s well being and livelihood, if you happen to be white and have an opinion that is not a part of the demented liberal socialist marxist politically correct stripe. Which is something Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Teana Walsh found out the hard way:

Days after posting her opinion on how to deal with protesters and looters in Baltimore, Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Teana Walsh resigned.

Walsh, 35, did not make public comments about her resignation. The resignation was sent to Prosecutor Kym Worthy Friday afternoon in response to push back for her Facebook post about shooting people in Baltimore.

Her post, from April 27, read in part “So I am watching the news in Baltimore and see large swarms of people throwing bricks, etc at police who are fleeing from their assaults … 15 in the hospital already.”

“Solution. Simple. Shoot em. Period. End of discussion. I don’t care what causes the protesters to turn violent…what the ‘they did it because’ reason is…no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting.”

 Walsh, who was on maternity leave, was set to be disciplined for the post. Instead she voluntarily resigned.

“This afternoon Assistant Prosecutor Teana Walsh called Prosecutor Kym Worthy to announce that she is voluntarily resigning her position with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office,” spokeswoman Maria Miller said in a release. “During her tenure in the office, Teana Walsh has been known for her great work ethic and her compassion for victims of crime and their families. Her post was up online briefly and she immediately took it down. The post was completely out of character for her and certainly does not reflect the person that we know.”

Worthy called the potential discipline an “internal matter,” and didn’t say what it would have been.

Activist group Progress Michigan released a statement about the incident calling into question all of Walsh’s work with the department.

“Kym Worthy must conduct a thorough review of Walsh’s conduct,” Lonnie Scott, executive director for Progress Michigan said in a release. “For an assistant county prosecutor to call for the summary execution of disenfranchised and angered citizens shows she has little regard for justice or due process.”

The organization claims it “holds public officials and government accountable,” in its mission statement.

Just so everyone knows Teana Walsh looks like this:

So, white people cannot have an opinion, that truly is a righteous opinion about what happened in Baltimore? It sure appears that way. But then again, that is what happens when you let Marxists rule the Country.

Update: Teana Walsh’s part of this story, is now a Memeorandum thread, with the usual left-wing suspects weighing in.

Customs and Immigration Officer shoots suspect in Detroit; Suspect had a hammer

Of course, you know, the left is going to play this one for all it is worth. Considering what’s happening elsewhere.

Detroit — The 20-year-old armed robbery suspect who was fatally shot by a federal agent on Monday was “armed with a hammer,” Detroit’s police chief said Tuesday.The shooting, on the city’s west side, angered residents who had to be placated by the city’s police chief.The Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team, a task force that included officers from the Detroit Police Department, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Marshals, were serving an armed robbery warrant in the 9500 block of Evergreen at the time of the shooting around 1:13 p.m., Detroit Police Chief James Craig said.The officers were allowed into the home to conduct their search, Craig said.The incident comes at a time of heightened tension between police and black communities in some U.S. cities, spurring a national debate about race and police tactics.In the Detroit incident, the suspect was black, as was the federal agent who shot him.

The man was armed with a hammer, he tried to attack a federal officer, and he got shot. Just another day in the big city. But, as you know, because he is black, as was the agent that shot him; because of the stuff happening everywhere now, the left and their media lap-dogs are going to exploit this, in hopes that there is another riot in Detroit.

What’s wrong with Santorum? This

(H/T Hot Air)

The following reasons are why Rick Santorum is not working as a potential for the white house:

  1. Santorum is what I like to call, “A Soft Statist.” When it comes to big business and business in general, he is all down with the federalists. However, when it comes to the libertarians he is totally against them and has made some very disparaging comments about them too.
  2. Santorum is Catholic and the Middle America and the Midwestern states are not that trusting of the Papists like Santorum. It goes back to the protestant/catholic mistrust thing that goes back a very long time. I mean, there were them things called the inquisitions  in which many of my Christian and Baptist forefathers were horrifically slaughtered by the Roman Catholic Church.  Many people have not forgotten about that. It was big issue when Kennedy ran for President.
  3. Populism – Santorums Sarah Palin style populism is just not going to play out those parts of the Country. As it says below, many of the people in that part of the Country are small business owners, farmers, and just plain folks who are simply not interested in hearing about how horrible some people have it.

Basically, Rick’s old hat. He ain’t got a prayer.

Rick Santorum was the returning champion at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition forum on Saturday. But inside Waukee, Iowa’s Point of Grace Church, it certainly didn’t feel like it.After his upset victory in the 2012 Iowa caucus – driven largely by the state’s powerful evangelical voting bloc – many expected the former Pennsylvania senator to be welcomed back with open arms. But compared to the other eight Republican candidates present at the Des Moines-area conference, Santorum’s speech fell strangely flat.The audience didn’t clap much, and when they did it was usually polite and perfunctory. Lines that felt like they were meant to be showstoppers were at times met with awkward silences.Part of that may have been due to his choice of subject matter. While speakers like Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal emphasized Christian credentials and Rand Paul and Scott Walker pushed muscular foreign policies, Santorum was selling a populist economic message that didn’t seem to land.He called the Republican Party’s supply-side, free trade message outdated and pushed for a minimum wage hike. “We’re keeping down the wages of American families,” he said. “We need to say we’re on the side of American workers.”Observers believe Santorum may be misreading his audience this time around. “It didn’t resonate,” said Dennis Goldford, a professor of politics at Des Moines’ Drake University. “Santorum sort of moved to that blue-collar conservatism, populist kind of approach . . . That’s not what will sell this particular crowd.”

This is why I always verify before I hit publish

This is almost sad, I saw this and didn’t publish it.

This is why you verify everything. I guess ol’ neocon hindrocket didn’t think of that.  What a freakin’ moron! :roll:

A Las Vegas man claims he started a false rumor that the injuries suffered by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid several months ago were the result of an attack by Reid’s brother, not an exercise accident.Larry Pfeifer, a 50-year-old former consultant in the nightclub and entertainment industry, said he fabricated the story after becoming appalled that right-wing political blogger John Hinderaker published a rumor that Reid’s injuries stemmed from an assault by a Mafia enforcer. Pfeifer said he pitched his fake story about the Reid brothers’ supposed fight to Hinderaker, author of the Power Line blog, to test whether the blogger would publish it, as well. When Hinderaker reported it and the rumor was subsequently spread by others in conservative media, Pfeifer says he began plotting to self-report it as a lie to show the lack of credibility and journalistic standards among partisan media figures.“It was just so outrageous,” he said. “The fact that someone can say something completely false that can destroy somebody’s life, it’s just wrong. Where’s the moral compass?”Source: The big lie: Las Vegan watches as his Reid tale takes off – Las Vegas Sun News

 

Comcast’s futile bid for media domination fails after gov’t pushback

This is some good news.

NEW YORK (AP) — What killed Comcast’s $45 billion bid for Time Warner Cable? Regulators’ desire to protect the Internet video industry that is reshaping TV.A combination of the No. 1 and No. 2 U.S. cable companies would have put nearly 30 percent of TV and about 55 percent of broadband subscribers under one roof, along with NBCUniversal, giving the resulting behemoth unprecedented power over what Americans watch and download.Competitors, consumer groups, and politicians have criticized the deal, saying it would lead to higher prices and less choice.”The proposed merger would have posed an unacceptable risk to competition and innovation, including to the ability of online video providers to reach and serve consumers,” Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said in a written statement.The Justice Department said that Comcast dropped its bid because of regulators’ concerns that the Philadelphia-based cable giant would become an “unavoidable gatekeeper” for Internet services.One of the concerns consumer advocates and competitors had with the Comcast deal was that it could undermine the streaming video industry that is reshaping TV. Comcast could, for example, require onerous payments from new online-only video providers for connecting to its network. Dish, the satellite TV company behind the new Web video service Sling TV, and Netflix opposed the deal

The part up there that I bolded and underlined is the reason why I glad to see that the Government stepped in. When you have one or two big companies controlling everything; that can deadly. It could also be used for partisan purposes, as in control.

Sawyer Sweeten of ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ dies at 19

This is some terribly bad news to report:

New York — Sawyer Sweeten, who played one of Ray Romano’s twin sons in the CBS comedy “Everybody Loves Raymond,” has died. He was 19.Sweeten committed suicide, his sister Madylin Sweeten, said in a statement. There were no other details.

Sawyer Sweeten was a toddler when the series began.In a statement Madylin, who is four years older than Sawyer, said the family was requesting privacy.“We beg of you to reach out to the ones that you love,” she said. “Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you.

TMZ.com has the story too. 19 years old, such a young age. Something clearly was amuck. God Bless his family. :(

 

Democrat Police State in Wisconsin

If you are one of those people that believes that we are headed towards a police state; then I VERY HIGHLY recommend that you click this link here, to read an article by David French, who is a lawyer and does write for the National Review. The link will open in a new window, so, turn off your popup blocker, because sometimes that will keep a new window from opening.

Now, I do realize that National Review is a Republican Establishment publication, but this article here;  is something that EVERY American should read; it shows just how dangerous that partisan Government and the use of law enforcement for partisan means, can really be. 

I did not quite any of this article, because I think everyone should read this one. If you are not a partisan person; then you would most likely want to read this one. It spooks the heck out of me; and I used to vote democratic party. Go read it now.

Bible Prophecy Watch: Russia’s Putin warns Israel against selling arms to Ukraine

I saw this on the Drudge report and found it quite interesting….:

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Israel against supplying weapons to the Ukrainian government, which is battling a Russian- backed insurgency in its eastern province.

“This is a choice, a choice of the Israeli leadership; they have the right to do what they consider appropriate. I think it is counterproductive, if it concerns lethal weapons, because it will only lead to yet another swirl of confrontation, to more human casualties, but the result will be the same,” Putin said in an interview on Rossiya 1 TV on Saturday.

His words were reported as well on the English-language news website for Sputnik International.

In Israel, the Prime Minister’s Office and the Defense Ministry had no response to the report.

Israel has been upset by Russia’s decision last week to lift its five-year ban on the sale of the S-300 anti-missile system to Iran and to deliver those weapons by the end of 2015.

It had voluntarily halted the sale of the weapons to Iran in 2010 under pressure from the West and because it was believed that such a ban would help sway Iran to enter negotiations over its nuclear program.

via Putin warns Israel against selling arms to Ukraine – Middle East – Jerusalem Post.

It has been widely believed for many years in the Fundamentalist Christian world, that Russian would move in an act of war against Israel. In fact, it is prophesied about in the Bible:

And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD. (Ezekiel 38:1-23 KJV)

This can be further explained by reading this Gospel tract here. The outcome is foretold here:

Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years: So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog. And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog. And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land. And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD. And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward. And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword. According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD. — (Ezekiel 39:1-29 KJV)

Here is the words of C.I. Scofield on this subject:

Gog

That the primary reference is to the northern (European) powers, headed up by Russia, all agree. The whole passage should be read in connection with (Zec_12:1-4); (Zec_14:1-9); (Mat_24:14-30); (Rev_14:14-20); (Rev_19:17-21); “gog” is the prince, “Magog,” his land. The reference to Meshech and Tubal (Moscow and Tobolsk) is a clear mark of identification. Russia and the northern powers have been the latest persecutors of dispersed Israel, and it is congruous both with divine justice and with the covenants (for example

(See Scofield) – (Gen_15:18).
(See Scofield) – (Deu_30:3).

that destruction should fall at the climax of the last mad attempt to exterminate the remnant of Israel in Jerusalem. The whole prophecy belongs to the yet future “day of Jehovah”; (Isa_2:10-22); (Rev_19:11-21) and to the battle of Armageddon (Rev_16:14).

(See Scofield) – (Rev_19:19)

but includes also the final revolt of the nations at the close of the kingdom-age. (Rev_20:7-9).  — Source: Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition) by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (1843-1921)

New Testament:

And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. —  (Revelation 20:8-9 KJV)

It is very much believed by many that this battle, which will take place, AFTER the calling away of the saints, not before; will bring on this event here:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:11-21 KJV)

Now, to the unchurched, this is nutty talk. But, it is, in fact, in the Bible. It commonly known as the second advent of Christ. The first coming, is commonly known as “The Blessed Hope” or “The Rapture” which I don’t like as a term; because it is really not found in the Bible.  However, there is going to be a calling away of the saints and it is going to be a world shaking event. The second advent is to come and destroy the armies of the World and set up Christ’s new heaven and new earth; the New Jerusalem, if you will. These are two distinct and different events.

It will be interesting to see just how all of this shapes up. I will be prayerfully watching.

IRS Scandal – No Indictment for Lerner

That notorious time of the year is upon us again; the income tax deadline. It is an affected date because the tax system tells it is so. The torment and extortion of organized theft goes on all year long, but April 15 has a special place in the gut of every victim of larceny by government. Oh sure, paying taxes is supposed to be the price of maintaining civilization, but when was the last time that government protected , much less promoted, the mythical “Good Society”. The notion that paying tribute to a federal self ordained authority as a duty is only accepted by delusional proponents of a fantasy existence of welfare recipient beneficiaries.

For the productive wealth creators, the government pensioners aid and abet the tax distribution scheme that extracts revenue from the private sectors and rewards public scavengers. This entire arrangement is based upon fear. The axiom is that your money is not your own and that tax rates run on an arbitrary scale and deductions are granted to privileged sympathizers.

If you buck the tax swindle, folks expect to be harassed and targeted. However, when law abiding citizens become the focus of financial molestation, the checks and balances in the legal adjudication, hypothetically should grant relief. The manner by which Tea Party groups were persecuted by the IRS division under the direction of Lois Lerner reach new heights of bureaucratic tyranny.

With the announcement that DOJ Will Not Prosecute IRS’s Lois Lerner for Contempt of Congress, righteous outrage builds among the remnant of justice seeking organizations.

“The American Center for Law and Justice has represented dozens of the conservative groups targeted by the IRS. It says the decision not to prosecute Lerner “is troubling but not surprising.”

New Feature: SARTRE Commentary

My friends, I usually have a policy around here, of not publishing other people’s works on my blog. However, I am about to break that policy. (It is my blog, I can do that you know…) I am going to start a new feature around here, called SARTRE commentary. SARTRE commentary is produced by a Paleoconservative website called Breaking All the Rules.

It is harsh, it is controversial; and it is, in this bloggers opinion, very good.

Enjoy it.

That above was the first entry on my new blog political byline; after my first one, The Populist was hacked, either by hackers in some foreign country or by neocons, who were pissed at me over something I had written.  Either way, I lost of years worth of work; due to some crappy hosting that I was really not even paying for. The hosting company folded, for what that is really worth.

2006 and 2007, feels now like an eternity ago. How things have changed! Bush is gone, Iraq is over; and now, it’s blew up again. Al-Qaeda is now taking a backseat to a group called ISIS; and they ain’t playing either! Obama has come and is about gone. The Tea Party rose, got exploited, and fizzled out. Ron Paul retired and now, his kid Rand is running for President. Hillary Clinton Ran, got defeated, by a black man and now, tomorrow is going to announce, again. New names: Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker. It is all rather strange.

When I started in 2006, social media was non-existent. Trackbacks were the lifeblood of blogging. New names: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, Pinterest. Cell Phones or smartphones, as they’re called now; basically rule us. Before I got this silly Galaxy S4, the last phone I owned was a Sanyo (I think?!?!?!) flip phone —- Egad, remember those? Now, apps are a big part of my life; I have 8 screens of them on my phone! In the days before smartphones, the first thing I would do, when my eyes opened in the morning, was go take a leak; now, I check my phone.

In the old days, if something big happened, my Mom would IM me or I’d hear about it some other way. Now, if a big story breaks; my phone goes nuts with alerts. I do everything from set my alarm to wake up to timing hamburgers on the grill with this thing. I even usually call in my refills for prescriptions with this thing. I don’t even have to climb the stairs anymore, except to grab my daily three square meals or take a leak.

The funny thing is, the Galaxy S4 is old technology now. They have a Galaxy S5, S6 and S6 edge now. Jebus, can we slow down, just a little? I’m just getting comfortable with this phone and now, its old hat. :roll:

9 Years. That’s a long time. I’m still that kid from southwest Detroit; an analog kid, living in this digital world:

…and everything has been good…..so far:

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. 😀

It’s Official: Rand Paul is in for 2016!

AP:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Sen. Rand Paul launched his 2016 presidential campaign Tuesday with a combative message against both Washington and his fellow Republicans, declaring that “we have come to take our country back.”

The fiery message, delivered in his home state of Kentucky before he jetted to four early-nominating states, was set to motivate legions of supporters from his father’s two earlier unsuccessful bids for the Republicans’ presidential nomination, as well as broaden his appeal outside of the typical GOP coalition.

“I worry that the opportunity and hope are slipping away for our sons and daughters,” Paul said in a speech that tried to tap into Americans’ deep frustration with Washington. “What kind of America will our grandchildren see?”

He added: “It seems to me that both parties and the entire political system are to blame.”

I will be adding a banner and a link to his donation site. I stand with Rand Paul.

Let My People Go: The War Against the Eradication of the Global Church

Beheadings. Crucifixions. Staged mass executions on display for the world to see.

Radical Islamic extremists are targeting and terrorizing Christians and other religious minorities throughout the Middle East and Africa. Attacks are now spilling over into Europe and the West. Religious persecution is expanding dramatically and religious minorities – especially Christians – are now facing horrendous attacks – and all too often – death.

This persecution cannot be ignored. It is critical that we speak out – sound an alarm – be a true voice – a powerful advocate – for the persecuted church.

In Let My People Go: The War Against the Eradication of the Global Church, ACLJ Films shares the powerful stories of the persecuted and those fighting for their freedom. This documentary goes behind the scenes to tell the compelling stories of a number of Christians who have been targeted because of their faith. Imprisoned American Pastor Saeed Abedini remains captive in Iran. His wife, Naghmeh, and their two young children face extraordinary pain and uncertainty. In Pakistan, Asia Bibi is imprisoned – on death row. And there are other Christians including Meriam Ibrahim and Pastor Youcef Nadarkani who have faced persecution for their faith, as well. ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow and others provide a detailed look at what’s behind this persecution – the rise of ISIS – the Islamic State. The goal of these radical jihadists: to wipe out Christianity. In a dangerous world where there’s growing chaos and conflict, there is still hope. We take a look at what can be done. And we shine a spotlight on the defenders of the faith – the men and women who are putting their own lives at risk to stand-up for the persecuted church.

“Let My People Go” is a powerful look at this battle – a critical fight against religious persecution around the globe. And what can be done – what must be done – to save the persecuted church.

Donate to this important cause.

Happy Resurrection Day 2015!

I know that in past years, I went whole hog, quoted scripture and such. But, this year, I am simply going to say; that I am grateful that Christ arose on that third day and now lives at the right hand of the Father. I am also glad that he resides in my heart and that one day, I will see Him! 😀

Happy Resurrection Day to you all!

World Wickedness Watch: Judge orders California to pay for inmate’s sex change

This is sickening, but, not really a shock.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. –  A federal judge on Thursday ordered California’s corrections department to provide a transgender inmate with sex change surgery, the first time such an operation has been ordered in the state.

U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco ruled that denying sex reassignment surgery to 51-year-old Michelle-Lael Norsworthy violates her constitutional rights. Her birth name is Jeffrey Bryan Norsworthy.

The ruling marks just the second time nationwide that a judge has issued an injunction directing a state prison system to provide the surgery, said Ilona Turner, legal director at the Transgender Law Center in Oakland, which helped represent Norsworthy.

The previous order in a Massachusetts case was overturned last year and is being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The reason I say that this is not really much of a shock, is because we are truly living in the last days. First, a Christian Pizza maker is persecuted for her beliefs. Then, this here. The Bible speaks of all of it:

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
(2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 King James Bible)

You see, this sort of evil has a bit of history with the God the Father:

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Genesis 6:1-8 King James Bible)

The next time God destroys the Earth, there won’t be any Noah. Before he does, this will happen:

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 King James Bible)

Once that happens, the fulfillment of Bible prophecy will begin:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. (Revelation 19:11-21 King James Bible)

…and this here, will be the ultimate destiny of people referenced in the quoted story above; and Satan who has deceived him and his kind:

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:1-15 King James Bible)

Even so, Come, Lord Jesus.
