Democrats Waging A War On Men To Satisfy The Feminist Left


National Organization for Women SC1 Democrats Waging a war on men to satisfy the feminist left
So let’s cut to the chase and talk about what’s really going on here.  Was the take-down of Colonel Allen West decided by a Machiavellian cabal in both parties that began with the redrawing of Florida Congressional voting districts, both state and federal?  And was this alleged decision made to move him out of the district controlled by the Democrat Mark Foley called the Chihuahua in high heels?
By insiders cutting a deal to move West up to the Democrat ex pat region of St. Lucie County, he would be folded in between GOP enclaves in both Martin and Indian River Counties.  Now the Democrats couldn’t have that, so a white guy with a rich daddy was plugged in to a district whose election supervisor was a female black activist, and we’re off to the races.   And is the real kicker here a story line circulated through the volunteer re- ount watchers this past week?  Was Allen West removed because operatives in Congress feared he would start up an “Impeach Obama” movement building out of Benghasi-gate becoming known as Fast and Furious on steroids?

A Tea Party Email entitled “Massive Election Fraud” points out that in 59 Philadelphia voting districts, Obama received 100% of the votes with not even a single vote recorded for Mitt Romney, “a mathematical and statistical impossibility.”  The National SEAL Museum, a “polling location in St. Lucie County, FL had a 158%  voter turnout-the highest voter overage in the entire country and second was Palm Beach County, FL with a 141% voter turnout overage.”  And the Email continues: “In Wood County, OH, 106,258 voters were registered to vote in a county with only 98,213 eligible voters.”   Photo ID analysis reveals Obama won “in every state that DID NOT require a Photo ID and lost in every state that DID” require one.

When I told Ft. Pierce black activist Chris Williams that this wasn’t a black-white thing and that it’s a male-female thing, he wholeheartedly agreed.  He tried but failed to get language on the St. Lucie ballot, supervised by Gertrude Walker, to do something about exorbitant utility bills, reportedly upwards of $1,600 a month, being yoked onto impoverished black families. He failed because these petition signatures somehow got lost in some warehouse somewhere.  When black bail bondsman Vince Gaskins was told by Walker that he won before he lost, a white woman with family ties to the utility was announced as the new mayor of Ft. Pierce.
And now we get to Colonel West who famously said “I’d walk through hell with a gasoline can to save my men.”   Was the West take-down cast in the high heels and uber-feminism now taking over this country?
My handyman said the women want power over men.  Is that why the long knives in D.C. came out after the good colonel?  Was Sandra Fluke a harbinger of a matriarchy set to drive America into oblivion by wussyfying our great military, by emasculating our men?  Ernest Hemingway’s “Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” has the answers for you!

Liberals’ Desire to Be Ruled Will Lead to a Totalitarian Government


The New Republic is a publication that really has no business not displaying the hammer and sickle on its website’s homepage, so left-wing are its writers.
Timothy Noah writes for TNR that President Obama, with no need to appeal to the majority of the country anymore since he will not be up for re-election, should now rule by executive fiat: “With the election over, the president can now take bolder action on a host of domestic issues that don’t require cooperation–or even input–from Congress. Though some of these actions might be controversial, that concern matters less now that Obama has faced voters for the last time.”
Noah here is admitting that he wants Obama to dictate rather than to comply with the separation of powers established by the Founders.

Isn’t it incredible that liberals are so willing to be ruled and dictated to? Where does this desire come from? What makes a man volunteer his rights in order for a politician to execute his own agenda? As demonstrated in all of the Democrats’ policy positions, they fear having to be responsible for their actions. When things go badly, they can blame someone else–the person who led them there. Hence their constant strive to elect leaders who are so eager to assume ever more power–specifically, left-wing Democrats.
An example of one of the unilateral moves Noah wishes Obama to make in this second term is to grant amnesty to even more illegal immigrants than he did in his first term, particularly to “agricultural workers,” a phrase which any Republican would be called racist for uttering, the suggestion that many gardeners and landscapers are Hispanics (even though it’s true).

“Such leadership,” says Noah, “could finally pressure Congress to get moving on immigration reform.”
You see, Obama will take action first, directing the Department of Homeland Security to stop deporting the illegal gardeners and landscapers (“agricultural workers,” euphemistically) employed by the white liberal elites, and this will encourage Congress to follow suit. “Well, Obama is going to grant amnesty anyway,” Noah seems to believe they will say, “So let’s just get it over with. Amnesty for all!”

Not going to happen. Nor will Republicans agree to any of the other proposals Noah suggests to the President, which you can read at the link above.
But as Noah says, who needs Congress? Not Obama. This liberal totalitarian wants Obama to impose his will on the rest of the country, seemingly unaware of the long-term consequences of bestowing onto any president the power of diktat, a power that all successive presidents will also have. And that includes Republican presidents.

America’s Top Crooked Cop Keeps Job for Another Year


What makes the head of a crime family happier than a witch in a broom factory?  Finding out that he will be keeping his job another 4 years and knowing that virtually no one can touch him.  His chief enforcer is also happy as he is keeping his job, at least for another four years.
In 1789, Edmund Jennings Randolph became the first US Attorney General under President George Washington.  Randolph, an attorney had previously served as Governor of Virginia before accepting the position as the top legal advisor for the newly formed nation where he would represent the US government in cases before the Supreme Court.
Since Randolph’s time, the role of US Attorney General has expanded to head the Department of Justice, created in 1870, where he/she is considered to be the chief lawyer and law enforcement officer of the US government.  As such, the US Attorney General is expected to be the archetype law abiding citizen in the nation.

Today’s US Attorney General, Eric Holder has proven to be anything but the archetype model law abiding citizen.  In fact, it seems more like the chief enforcer for the nation’s top crime boss, Barack Obama.  Together, the two of them have repeatedly broken one law after another along with committing multiple violations of the US Constitution.  Since Holder is the top cop and prosecutor in the country, he’s virtually untouchable.
Yes, the US House of Representatives can impeach Holder, but that would leave the actual conviction up to the Democratic controlled Senate, which we all know won’t happen.

Several of Obama’s Cabinet leaders have informed him that they will be resigning soon.  US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta are among those that are jumping ship.  It seems that Obama has tried to keep Holder in place, but there are rumors that he will only stay for another year.
While that is good news in some ways, one can only wonder who the next top crooked cop will be.  Within the halls of Capital Hill, names such as Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have been floating around as a possible replacement for Holder.  From a conservative point of view, that would be like replacing one liberal lawbreaker with another.  A few other names have wafted on the winds of rumor which include Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Gov. Deval Patrick of MA.

I honestly believe that Napolitano could be worse than Holder.  As for the other three, I don’t think any of them could be much worse than Holder, and perhaps could even be better, but I won’t hold my breath.  I’ll just be glad if and when Holder is gone.

Black voters look to leverage their loyalty

WASHINGTON (AP) — When black voters gave President Barack Obama 93 percent support on Election Day in defiance of predictions that they might sit it out this year, black leaders breathed a collective sigh of relief.
That encouraged those leaders to try to leverage more attention from both Obama and Congress. Although they waver over how much to demand from the president — particularly in light of defeated GOP challenger Mitt Romney's assertion that Obama gave "gifts" to minorities in exchange for their votes — they are delivering postelection wish lists to the president anyway.
"I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, 'Let's build on where we already are,'" the Rev. Al Sharpton told reporters after a White House meeting last week with a collection of advocates representing largely Democratic constituencies.
Specifically, Sharpton said, that means keeping the brunt of the looming "fiscal cliff" of tax increases and spending cuts off the backs of the middle and working class.
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous aimed that same message at Congress, especially on where tax relief is extended.
"We need Republicans to think hard and to pull back from the cliff 98 percent of our families, who make up the bulk of this nation, from seeing our taxes being raised," Jealous said. 

Blacks made up 13 percent of the electorate this year, about the same as 2008, while participation among whites shrank slightly to 72 percent and Hispanics increased to 10 percent, national exit polls showed. Black leaders point to that minority participation as they sharpen their calls for initiatives to address black unemployment, which was 12.7 percent when Obama took office, peaked at 16.5 percent roughly a year later, and stood at 14.3 percent in October. The overall unemployment rate is 7.9 percent.
National Urban League President Marc Morial acknowledged in an interview that "we sweated turnout all the way to the end," because the country's underlying economic conditions made it tougher to mobilize black voters. Within days of the election, Morial sent to Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., an "urgent petition" asking that Obama's second term focus on economic opportunity and income inequality.
A jobs program should emphasize infrastructure and public works, broadband technology and energy "with a special focus on those communities where unemployment is and remains stubbornly and persistently high," Morial's letter said.
"We who represent the nation's urban communities will demand a seat at the table in these discussions," he wrote. 

African-American voter samples in national exit polls are not useful for providing turnout measurements. Census surveys and other analyses eventually will provide turnout numbers for specific racial groups. But exit polls can be used to examine different groups as shares of the overall vote. And there, experts say, is where the evidence can be found of how much black voters delivered for Obama.
Nationally, Obama's share of the black vote was down slightly from four years ago. But in some key states, turnout was higher and had an impact, said David Bositis, an expert on black politics and voting at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.
Blacks made up 15 percent of the electorate in Ohio, up from 11 percent in 2008. And 97 percent of those votes went for Obama, leading Bositis to say Obama's margin of victory in the state came from black voters.
In Michigan, the black share of the vote grew from 12 percent in 2008 to 16 percent in 2012, according to exit polls.
"Michigan was one of the states the two parties jostled around, and eventually Republicans decided they were not going to win, and one of the reasons was the big increase in the black vote," Bositis said.
In Missouri, a state Obama lost in both elections, the black vote went from 13 percent to 16 percent of all voters. 

Bositis said the black share of the vote remained roughly the same at 23 percent in North Carolina, which Obama narrowly won in 2008 but lost in 2012, and 13 percent in Florida, which Obama won both times. In Virginia, which Obama won in both elections, black voters were 20 percent of all voters, he said.
Women and people from ages 18 to 29 had the strongest participation levels in the black community.
In 2008, black women had the highest turnout rate, 69 percent, of all groups. Their 2008 record created a sense of obligation among some black female leaders to take an active role against new state voting laws they said threatened to curb black voter participation. Black women made up 60 percent of the black vote this year and voted 95 percent for Obama.
The enthusiasm of black women was demonstrated in Florida when more than 250 churches marched their congregations to the polls as part of the "Souls To the Polls" early voting campaign, said Melanie Campbell, president and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation. A large percentage of the marchers were women, Campbell said.
"Countless women stood in line for hours to vote early so they could volunteer to work at the polls to help in the fight against voter suppression," Campbell said.
Black voters ages 18-29 made up 26 percent of the black vote nationally, a turnout close to what it was in 2008, according to the national exit poll. They voted 91 percent for Obama. 

Republicans had reached out to black voters in 2004 and saw their share of the black vote increase in that election, Bositis said. But he said that in 2012, the outreach was nonexistent.
Michael Steele, former Republican National Committee chairman, said the GOP had an opportunity this election to connect with black voters on unemployment, health disparities, incarceration and other issues.
"How the heck do you win if you don't engage in the conversation?" Steele said.

Egypt's Mursi faces judicial revolt over decree

CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi faced a rebellion from judges who accused him on Saturday of expanding his powers at their expense, deepening a crisis that has triggered violence in the street and exposed the country's deep divisions.
The Judges' Club, a body representing judges across Egypt, called for a strike during a meeting interrupted with chants demanding the "downfall of the regime" - the rallying cry in the uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak last year.
Mursi's political opponents and supporters, representing the divide between newly empowered Islamists and their critics, called for rival demonstrations on Tuesday over a decree that has triggered concern in the West.
Issued late on Thursday, it marks an effort by Mursi to consolidate his influence after he successfully sidelined Mubarak-era generals in August. The decree defends from judicial review decisions taken by Mursi until a new parliament is elected in a vote expected early next year.
It also shields the Islamist-dominated assembly writing Egypt's new constitution from a raft of legal challenges that have threatened the body with dissolution, and offers the same protection to the Islamist-controlled upper house of parliament. 

Egypt's highest judicial authority, the Supreme Judicial Council, said the decree was an "unprecedented attack" on the independence of the judiciary. The Judges' Club, meeting in Cairo, called on Mursi to rescind it.
That demand was echoed by prominent opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei. "There is no room for dialogue when a dictator imposes the most oppressive, abhorrent measures and then says 'let us split the difference'," he said. 

"I am waiting to see, I hope soon, a very strong statement of condemnation by the U.S., by Europe and by everybody who really cares about human dignity," he said in an interview with Reuters and the Associated Press.
More than 300 people were injured on Friday as protests against the decree turned violent. There were attacks on at least three offices belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood, the movement that propelled Mursi to power.
Liberal, leftist and socialist parties called a big protest for Tuesday to force Mursi to row back on a move they say has exposed the autocratic impulses of a man once jailed by Mubarak.
In a sign of the polarization in the country, the Muslim Brotherhood called its own protests that day to support the president's decree.
Mursi also assigned himself new authority to sack the prosecutor general, who was appointed during the Mubarak era, and appoint a new one. The dismissed prosecutor general, Abdel Maguid Mahmoud, was given a hero's welcome at the Judges' Club. 

In open defiance of Mursi, Ahmed al-Zind, head of the club, introduced Mahmoud by his old title.
The Mursi administration has defended the decree on the grounds that it aims to speed up a protracted transition from Mubarak's rule to a new system of democratic government.
Analysts say it reflects the Brotherhood's suspicion towards sections of a judiciary unreformed from Mubarak's days.
"It aims to sideline Mursi's enemies in the judiciary and ultimately to impose and head off any legal challenges to the constitution," said Elijah Zarwan, a fellow with The European Council on Foreign Relations.
"We are in a situation now where both sides are escalating and its getting harder and harder to see how either side can gracefully climb down."
Following a day of violence in Cairo, Alexandria, Port Said and Suez, the smell of tear gas hung over the capital's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of the uprising that toppled Mubarak in 2011 and the stage for more protests on Friday.
Youths clashed sporadically with police near the square, where activists camped out for a second day on Saturday, setting up makeshift barricades to keep out traffic.
Al-Masry Al-Youm, one of Egypt's most widely read dailies, hailed Friday's protest as "The November 23 Intifada", invoking the Arabic word for uprising. 

But the ultra-orthodox Salafi Islamist groups that have been pushing for tighter application of Islamic law in the new constitution have rallied behind Mursi's decree.
The Nour Party, one such group, stated its support for the Mursi decree. Al-Gama'a al-Islamiya, which carried arms against the state in the 1990s, said it would save the revolution from what it described as remnants of the Mubarak regime.
Samir Morkos, a Christian assistant to Mursi, had told the president he wanted to resign, said Yasser Ali, Mursi's spokesman. Speaking to the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, Morkos said: "I refuse to continue in the shadow of republican decisions that obstruct the democratic transition".
Mursi's decree has been criticized by Western states that earlier this week were full of praise for his role in mediating an end to the eight-day war between Israel and Palestinians.
"The decisions and declarations announced on November 22 raise concerns for many Egyptians and for the international community," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
The European Union urged Mursi to respect the democratic process.

Isaiah 9:10 linked to 9/11 – again!

WND Exclusive
WASHINGTON – The No. 1 bestselling Christian book and the No. 1 faith movie of 2012 both deal with the striking parallels between events leading the destruction of ancient Israel and events taking place in America since 9/11.
But the author of “The Harbinger” and the narrator of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” documentary based on the book has discovered yet another striking link between 9/11 and the key verse upon which his teaching rests.

In 1985, the “One-Year Bible” was published in many translations around the world – from the Living Bible to the Catholic Bible to the New King James version to the New American Standard and the English Standard Bible.
Those Bible translations provide verses to read each day of the year – from both the New and Old Testaments.
Jonathan Cahn, the messianic rabbi who wrote “The Harbinger” and offers his teaching in “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” movie, recently discovered that every one of those “One-Year Bible” versions place Isaiah 9:10 on Sept. 11.
“This has been the case since 1985,” said Cahn on a recent Jim Bakker TV show. “It’s been there for years. Millions of Americans have been reading this verse on Sept. 11 for 16 years before 2001.”

It’s just the latest example of dozens of links between the attack of 9/11 in America and the attack on ancient Israel described in Isaiah 9:10, revealed in both the book and the movie. Cahn says the harbingers for America – messages he believes are from God – continue to mount.
On the series of TV shows that aired just after the November election, Cahn said the vote itself has significance in the context of his teaching, which has swept through America and the world in the form of “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”

“The leader of a nation can make a big difference,” said Cahn. “When you look at Israel, when you had an immoral king, it led the nation into immorality. When you had a righteous king, it led the nation into revival. It’s not dependent just on the leader. But what the president does, what the Congress does – the laws affect everyone. It affects the preaching of the Gospel, the teaching of the young and the next generation – all of this. What just happened is significant. America made a choice. It was a sign of a turn against the ways of God.”
Cahn also mentioned the effects of Hurricane Sandy on the New York area – particularly on Ground Zero.

He cited the words of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, appearing at the site of destruction and telling a television interviewer: “This is the Ground Zero site. This is a monument to human capacity and human endurance. And, this is New Yorkers’ way of saying we’re not going to give up. We’re going to come back and we will. This city will rebuild and the state will rebuild, and I believe will be the better for it.”
For those who have read “The Harbinger” or seen “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” those words have special meaning.
It was a message all-too-familiar from U.S., state and city leaders in the wake of the 9/11 attack: “We will rebuild. We will come back stronger.”
The words mimicked – sometimes with precision – those of ancient Israel in Isaiah 9:10: “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”

And that’s the pattern that has been revealed in Cahn’s bestseller and the movie that has been the No. 1 faith film in America for the last 35 weeks.
It continued in the words of some officials in the wake of Sandy’s flooding of New York and New Jersey – including by the governor of New York speaking on network television from Ground Zero.
So what?
Cuomo may blame catastrophic man-made climate change. But Cahn doesn’t.
“A number of years ago, as I was standing at the edge of Ground Zero in New York City, I came across the first puzzle piece of an ancient biblical mystery and a prophetic message known as ‘The Harbinger’ that concerns the future of America,” explains Cahn, who helped write and narrate the two-hour documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
Cahn says he has since found nine harbingers that tie the problems America has experienced beginning Sept. 11, 2001, with parallels that led to the destruction of ancient Israel.

“Before God judges a nation, He sends warning,” explains Cahn. “He sent warning to ancient Israel. He even allowed its enemies to breach its borders in a devastating strike that would traumatize the nation. It was a wake-up call, the call to return to God. But the nation responded with defiance. God then gave nine harbingers of judgment, nine prophetic signs, alarms and foreshadows of what was to come. Now America is the nation in rapid departure from God’s will. And God likewise allowed an enemy to breach its borders in a devastating strike – the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It was, likewise, a wake-up call. But America, like Israel, has not responded with repentance, but with defiance. And now the nine harbingers of judgment have reappeared and have done so on American soil.”

Isaiah 9:10 is a verse in which Israel’s national leaders utter a vow of defiance following an attack by Assyria. It declared that the nation would not repent before God, but would defy Him instead. Cahn reveals in “The Harbinger” – and in even more dramatic fashion in the video – that beginning the day after Sept. 11, 2001, American leaders began repeating that 2,500-year-old vow, word for word.
“Having no idea what he was doing, the majority leader of the U.S. Senate (Tom Daschle) was declaring America as under the judgment of God,” Cahn says. “It was the reenactment of an ancient mystery – and bore the most grave of consequences.”
He continues: “According to the ancient mystery revealed in the Book of Isaiah, if after that first calamity and warning, the nation doesn’t return to God but responds in defiance, it will end up triggering a second calamity. It was because of this ancient key, that, seven years after 9/11, the American economy collapsed. In the days after 9/11, the Federal Reserve slashed the base interest rate in an attempt to defy the consequences of the attacks. That action put us on the path leading to the collapse of the American economy seven years later. In 2008, the government made a second fatal mistake, another ill-fated financial decision, that would trigger the collapse of the American economy. Amazingly, it took place on the seventh anniversary of the uttering of the ancient vow on Capitol Hill.”

Cahn also reveals in “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” something that readers and viewers universally find astonishing – that New York’s Ground Zero actually represents more than the former financial center of the country. It represents the exact place at which America was first consecrated to God in prayer by the country’s new leaders.
“When judgment came to Israel, the calamity returned the people’s attention to the place where the nation had been consecrated to God – the Temple Mount,” says Cahn. “God was calling the nation back to Himself. What about 9/11? Could there be, in the American calamity, as well, a mystery of return? Could there be a prophetic message hidden in the place where it happened? There is a place where America was consecrated to God in prayer. It is also a place linked to a prophetic warning given on that same day – uttered by the nation’s first president – now coming to pass.”

In 1789, newly inaugurated President George Washington gave a prophetic warning at Federal Hall in New York City. He declared that America’s prosperity and protection were dependent upon its adherence to God. Later, the political leaders of the young nation gathered at St. Paul’s Chapel to commit the nation’s future to God’s purposes. That chapel is located at Ground Zero and miraculously survived 9/11 virtually unscathed.
Cahn, the pastor of the Jerusalem Center-Beth Israel Congregation in Wayne, N.J., says America is uncannily re-enacting ancient Israel’s behavior prior to its judgment and eventual fall. He found a sympathetic ear for his message in WND founder Farah, who produced “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” as a follow-up to “The Harbinger.”
The key to decoding the harbingers, Cahn says, is found in understanding the seemingly innocuous words of Isaiah 9:10, what it meant to Israel and how the history seems to be repeating itself in America today.

These words were first uttered by leaders in Israel and in response to a limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali – an attack the prophet makes clear is actually part of a limited judgment by God against apostasy. It wasn’t meant to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to most commentaries.
But, says Cahn, Israel didn’t take the cue. Instead, the response from the people in Isaiah 9:10 is one of defiance. The brick buildings were toppled, but they vowed to build bigger and better. The little sycamore trees may have been uprooted, but they vowed to plant bigger and better cedars in their place.
God, speaking through Isaiah explains what will happen as a result of their pride and arrogance and failure to heed the harbinger: Bigger and more potent attacks will follow. Because neither the northern kingdom of Israel nor the southern kingdom of Judah truly repents, the first is eventually swept away by Assyrian invaders and the latter is carried off into captivity by the Babylonians for 70 years.

But what does this have to do with the United States of America – particularly what the U.S. experienced on 9/11 and since? Cahn has found some eerie parallels.
“In the aftermath of the attack, the nation was stunned,” said Cahn. “Everyone was trying to make sense of what had happened – this unprecedented attack on America. The very next day, Sept. 12, then Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle presented America’s response to the world. And what did he say?”
Daschle said: “America will emerge from this tragedy as we have emerged from all adversity – united and strong. Nothing … nothing can replace the losses of those who have suffered. I know there is only the smallest measure of inspiration that can be taken from this devastation. But there is a passage in the Bible from Isaiah that speaks to all of us at times like this.”
He then went on to read Isaiah 9:10.
“Daschle has no idea what he is doing here,” explains Cahn. “He thinks he’s offering comforting words to a grief-stricken people, but he is actually embracing the spiritually defiant and arrogant words of the children of Israel, proclaiming the ancient and ominous vow of the leaders of that nation. He doesn’t realize it, but he is actually inviting more judgment on the nation.”

It might be of some significance that Daschle, one of the most powerful men in the nation when he spoke those words, later fell into disgrace – to the point where he couldn’t even serve in Barack Obama’s Cabinet.
That might have been the end of the story – if no other top leader in the nation uttered those strange and obscure words after 9/11. But that’s not the case.
On the third anniversary of the attack, Sept. 11, 2004, another powerful U.S. senator running for vice president that year and who would famously run for the presidency four years later, gave a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus.
This time, John Edwards’ entire speech was built on a foundation of Isaiah 9:10:
“Today, on this day of remembrance and mourning, we have the Lord’s Word to get us through,” he said. He then read Isaiah 9:10. He went on to talk about how America was doing just that – rebuilding with hewn stone and planting cedars.

Later, in his first State of the Union Address in 2009, Barack Obama hearkens back to the same theme. And now Cuomo – right back at the site of the original attack.
In “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” viewers get to see these remarkable, largely forgotten or overlooked speeches, which directly link the events of 9/11 and the events referred to in Isaiah 9:10.
But aside from such statements, which could be chalked up to political talk and coincidences, is there anything else linking Isaiah 9:10 to 9/11 and the shockwaves that followed, including two economic crashes?
The video documentary, like the book, is full of shocking parallels. There was actually a very famous sycamore tree felled in the attack on the World Trade Center. It was replaced by trees in the same genus as the cedar. There have been many plans made to rebuild the twin towers bigger and better and a large “hewn stone” was actually quarried out of the Adirondack Mountains in New York and brought to Ground Zero as a cornerstone.
“The parallels are truly stunning,” says Farah, founder of WND, who produced the documentary for WND Videos. “In fact, they are overwhelming in their number and their exactitude. I am persuaded God is trying to tell America something and Rabbi Cahn has found the key to unlocking the message.”

Ex-police dog shot defending home from intruders

By Sonja Isger
Drake has had an ultrasound and awaits a CAT scan before doctors determine their course of action, Dr. Ken Simmons said.

UPDATE 3 p.m.: Specialists at the University of Florida’s veterinary hospital are still trying to determine whether Drake the injured German shepherd needs yet another surgery to recover from one of several gun shot wounds.
“It’s all in their hands,” said his owner Florida Highway Patrol trooper Bobby Boody, who accompanied Drake and pilot veterinarian Dr. Ken Simmons to Gainesville. “There’s not much more I can say or do. It’s been a little stressful.”
Simmons and Boody flew back to West Palm Beach from Gainesville about 2 p.m. Friday, leaving Drake in Gainesville, where the German shepherd is expected to spend more time recovering. “He may be staying up there for a while,” Boody said.
Friday afternoon, the doctors seemed to agree that in addition to all the other damage done by at least four bullets – two broken limbs, a puncture to his brow, a hole in his jaw – he may also have a tear in his esophagus that’s been preventing him from eating or drinking, Simmons said.
The question they faced Friday afternoon is whether the tear warranted surgical mending or would heal better on its own, Simmons said.

Drake’s survival to this point is nothing short of miraculous, Simmons and Boody agreed.
UPDATE 11:40 a.m.: Dr. Ken Simmons and Drake arrived safely in Gainesville this morning. Drake has had an ultrasound and awaits a CAT scan before doctors determine their course of action, Simmons said.
UPDATE 8:50 a.m.: Dr. Ken Simmons, veterinary technician Tammy Randall and former police dog Drake are flying now to Gainesville to University of Florida’s veterinary hospital.
UPDATE 6:50 a.m. : The veterinarian caring for former police dog Drake will be flying the dog to Gainesville this morning. Dr. Ken Simmons reports that the dog is stable and “looks pretty good this morning” but continues to battle to stay well. He says Drake will get a cat scan to look investigate what could be a hole or tear in his esophagus. A team of surgeons is on standby at the University of Florida’s veterinary hospital to care for Drake should he need surgery, Simmons said. The vet said he’ll be flying the dog out of Lantana airport about 8 a.m. today.

Drake, the former police dog clinging to life after being shot at least four times during an attempted burglary, may be flown to Gainesville for emergency surgery Friday morning, his veterinarian said Thursday.
A new complication arose today, possibly making the trip necessary, said Dr. Ken Simmons, owner of the suburban Lake Worth animal hospital where the 5-year-old German shepherd has been treated this week.
Fluid was discovered around the dog’s lung, indicating either a wound or an infection that hadn’t been detected before. Simmons said he suspects a bullet may have nicked his esophagus, creating the deposit of fluid.
“It could be a hole or a nick,” said Simmons, who operates Simmons Veterinary Hospital on Lake Worth Road. “If it just a nick, it could heal by itself, and if by tomorrow morning we see him improving, there may be no need to go to Gainesville.”
But if he feels it is necessary, Simmons — a private pilot with a Cessna 206 — says he plans to fly to University of Florida School of Veterinary Medicine, his alma mater, where a CAT scan and emergency surgery can be performed. Simmons has been in touch with authorities there about the case.

“Right now we feel we have a finger in the dike,” Simmons said. “but we want to do all we can to save the dog. He’s a fighter, an unbelievable fighter.”
Drake was shot late Sunday when three juveniles broke into the suburban West Palm Beach home of his owner, Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Bobby Boody.
Palm Beach County County sheriff’s investigators took a 16-year-old male into custody late Wednesday. The teen, whose name was not released because of his age, is facing charges of burglary while armed with a firearm and felony cruelty to animals. A sheriff’s spokesman said Thursday the other two juveniles involved were still at large.
Investigators tracked the teen down because he is wearing an ankle monitor. He is on probation through the Division of Juvenile Justice for burglary and grand theft. He confessed to being the shooter and told investigators his group knew the house belonged to a law-enforcement officer and targeted it because they believed there were guns and money inside.
“He had no remorse,” Detective Philip DiMola said. “I asked him, ‘Did you think about that dog today?’ He said no.”

Obama’s Latest Attempt To Overwhelm The System


Obama Feeds America SC Obamas Latest Attempt To Overwhelm The System
If you are a business owner, you are well aware that President Obama has imposed over 6,000 new regulations on businesses in just 90 days. This doesn’t even begin to address the massive amount of regulations imposed over the last 4 years. The bigger picture is that it’s all part of his plan to “OVERWHELM” the system.
Karl Marx said that capitalism will eventually fail and that communism is the solution and end game. He says you can wait for that to happen, or you can accelerate the process by overwhelming the system and destroying capitalism. There will be so much chaos that it is easy to take away rights and take control as the government savior.

Once that occurs, you implement communism. This process can only be understood by the “enlightened” government leaders (Obama and the like). The masses are too stupid and ignorant to understand how good communism will be for them, so they need to be forced down that path, by any and all means possible. Lie, deceive, create class and race warfare issues, and use catastrophes (and if there are none, make some up; the ends justify the means.) That is why every time Obama speaks about anything, you will notice that it is always very dramatic (and the world will end if we don’t do it right away.) Examples include Obamacare and his “Jobs bill.”

If the progression is not fast enough, then Karl Marx says you need to kill people to help the greater good achieve “enlightenment”. That is why in Russia, they killed 60 million of their own people, for the greater good. Of course, the greater good is so the top 3% in government leadership can have all power and wealth and remove all means for the masses to ever be able to topple them, including taking all rights, removing all weapons, and eliminating religion.
To deflect those who say that Obama is not a Marxist..
His favorite college professors are Marxists, his favorite books were written by Marxists, his parents and grandparents were Marxists, their friends were Marxists, and his administration is full of Marxists. I know they don’t like that term; it is “progressives” now.
As dumb as he seems, I actually believe he knows what he is doing. The unfortunate part is that we don’t think it could ever happen here, and we don’t know enough about communism to realize what is happening.
Most of us don’t even know much about our own Constitution and the reasoning and brilliance behind its development.
Read the Federalist Papers and other writings from our Founders; they knew we would want to move towards socialism, and so they wrote the Constitution the best they could to prevent that.

Republican Leaders Have It All Figured Out


This viral video videtorial is based on a November 23, 2012 editorial by Joseph Farah, founder and publisher of

The silver lining under the dark cloud of the Republican debacle of 2012 is that the so-called "leaders" have it all figured as to what went wrong.

These leaders — the same ones who selected Mitt Romney as the nominee of the party — believe success in the future means they need to be the ones to pick nominees for the Senate, rather than leaving that up to Republican voters.

In other words, they still believe they lost the unloseable election to the most failed president in American history because of Todd Akin. Never mind the fact that they lost every Senate race where their chosen candidate got the nomination. They were just too hands off in 2012. They don't plan to make that "mistake" again in 2014.

Isn't that good news?

Seriously, there are several people who have to go if the Republican Party is to reinvent itself in a way that will allow it to be more competitive in future elections: Mitch McConnnell is one. John Boehner is another. And Karl Rove is the third member of the arrogant, self-interested triumvirate.

McConnell and Boehner, for instance, are tripping over themselves to accommodate Barack Obama in his second term — offering up support for "comprehensive immigration reform," a euphemism for amnesty for millions of illegal aliens who will vote Democratic in 2014 and 2016, raising the debt limit again to ensure Obamacare is funded and not even considering how this complicity will position the Republicans as a non-viable alternative to the Democrats in future elections.

And notice how the Democrat-loving media cheerleaders are loving and applauding and encouraging every self-destructive move the Republican establishment is making in the aftermath of the election.

And in the absence of any conservative Republican choices, why should voters choose a liberal Democrat wannabee when they can have a real liberal Democrat?

Update From Tel Aviv

Franklin Raff RBR 1024x681 Update from Tel Aviv 
(Editor’s note: this was written Wednesday, just before the cease-fire.)
Just a quick firsthand account of the situation here for friends in the business.  I am now in my studio with the monitors on all the major networks, the “missile shields” down, (well – they’re sort of like thick steel shutters) and wanted to paint a few quick, clear pictures for you.

Today, as you are probably aware the conflict escalated with at least one bus bombing downtown. I was quite near there at the time and everyone sort of detoured their way around that area while emergency personnel rushed in. One has to be extremely careful after a blast as it is common terrorist practice to plant secondary bombs in order to take out people rushing in to help the wounded.  As of this moment, suspects in today’s attack “may still be” at large, so we are staying off the streets.
You should know that there is a general code of communication here whereby it is taboo to discuss, disseminate, or broadcast specific information regarding missile landings, bomb effects, etc. This is of course due to the fact that this information can be used to aid enemy targeting and ranging, to say nothing of propaganda efforts. Speaking of which, Hamas’ efforts in this regard are slipping a little. According to a Fox report moments ago:  “Solid evidence now reveals how Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza have been deliberately placing their civilian population in mortal danger, choreographing a number of seemingly gory scenes, as well as releasing images from other conflicts, such as Iraq and Syria, and passing them off as dead Gazan civilians killed by Israeli missiles.”

The intentional greying of specifics for one reason or another may be one reason why mainstream media reports are dodgy on the situation here. The other reason, of course, is that many mainstream media reporters are flocking to Gaza where they can be fed information by those with whom many – not all – seem to sympathize. Israel explicitly and incessantly warns journalists in Gaza to stay away, physically, from Hamas operatives. We hear it all the time locally. This advice, tragically, has not been heeded: a fact largely ignored in recent, absurdly irresponsible comments in the press about “Israel targeting journalists.”
Press people: THIS IS WAR. STAY AWAY, PHYSICALLY, FROM HAMAS OPERATIVES.  Stay away from them. Report what you want but do your talking on the phone.
A less unpleasant vignette, aside: Israel is an intensely family-focused culture, and the high regard and affection for children here transcends all imaginable cultural and ethnic divisions. One notices this regularly in restaurants, for instance, where kids are treated like royalty. (My French friends / clients invariably contrast this with the situation in Paris, wherein families with children are often begrudgingly seated in the back corners of bistros.) In the time after today’s blast, I noticed parents of all stripes – Orthodox, secular, Arab Israelis, Ethiopians, European types, the new Sudanese refugees  – discussing the situation, the locations of bomb shelters, offering each other transportation, playing with the children, etc. And – everyone is pitching in to help older folks do just about everything.

Life goes on. That’s the motto here. Friday’s “main event” in my circle was a sailboat race and we decided to go on with it with about 40 yachts in the fleet. I was on shore with the race committee at the moment one rocket landed. When the sirens went off, everyone hit the deck, in this case, literally. I will not say where it landed, or how close it was, but I witnessed the explosion at the moment of impact. Nobody was hurt in this instance, but it was quite something. It is public information, whether or not reported, that in certain types of rockets, Hamas has replaced part of the off-the-shelf explosive payload in their smaller rockets with additional fuel capacity in order to achieve the range required for a Tel Aviv hit. You may draw your own conclusions from that.
As you probably know, Israel demands a cessation of Hamas rocket attacks as prerequisite for a cease-fire. Hamas representatives have said, whether or not it is true, that they are holding longer-range rockets in reserve. They are also promising more homicide-bomber attacks if a cease-fire cannot be reached. I know this, and more, by the way, because I was with my friend Aaron Klein when his source confirmed it. If you want the best news on the situation here, I strongly advise you to add his reports and updates (WABC radio, WND, to your media diet. He is totally plugged in – so much so it is almost shocking.

I was here during the “disengagement” from Gush Katif / Gaza, by the way, and visited that lovely, prosperous, and productive town in the days before and during the evacuation of the Jews. (The reason I describe the town is because its buildings, streets, businesses, parks, and manicured lawns reminded me of Scottsdale or Santa Fe – whereas to see it depicted in the mainstream media one would have thought it consisted of a bunch of wacky zealots on a mound of dirt.) I gave an NRB Prayer Breakfast speech about the disengagement experience which you can see on YouTube if you are interested. What I would like to point out is that that land was given away to Gaza for “peace,” and yet only days after the Israelis were yanked from their homes, farms, and synagogues, those same places were peppered with rocket launchers aimed at Israel – the same ones we face today. “Land for peace” seems as dark and murderous a prospect on this day as it was in the time of Chamberlain and Hitler.
Rockets have been landing daily, from Gaza, on Israeli towns like Sderot for years. Every day, or almost every day, for years. Now they are landing on Tel Aviv, so the news is more difficult for the mainstream media to ignore. But the facts, however you choose to interpret them, are the same. Israel has been under attack from the moment of its inception.
We are well. The people here are highly focused and extremely resilient. Let’s all hope and pray for a speedy and enduring solution to this terrible situation and for minimal loss of life and carnage here and for those who presently suffer under Hamas.
Best to all,
Franklin Raff

Video: Obama Commits Treason With The Muslim Brotherhood


We witnessed another one of Barack Obama’s oddities with the Muslim Brotherhood. The first anomaly was when Obama was almost giddy when the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, ascended to power. The Muslim Brotherhood had openly called for the destruction of the United States “from within”, most recently apparent in Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR calling for the purging of any training materials within the FBI and CIA that “offended” Muslims. Barack Obama of course dutifully complied.
The most recent oddity, however, is Obama calling on Morsi to “broker a truce” between Hamas and Israel. Hamas has fired on average one thousand rockets per year at Israel from the Gaza strip; and for eight days, Israel did something that they should have done a decade ago: fight back.

Keep in mind that the Muslim Brotherhood is the parent organization of Hamas. Keep in mind that, like Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood has called for the annihilation of Israel. So for Obama to call on Morsi to “broker a truce” is ridiculous.
The so-called “truce” amounts to Israel ceasing to defend herself and the opening up of the Gaza strip blockade that has kept Iran and other extremists countries (now Egypt) from shipping more powerful weapons to Hamas.
Furthermore, Obama colluding with someone who is part of an organization that has openly called for the destruction of the United States amounts to treason in my book.

As The Benghazi Plot Thickens, Congress Must Not Get Sidetracked


us capitol building SC As the Benghazi Plot Thickens, Congress Must Not Get Sidetracked
CBS News is reporting that it was the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that purged references to “al Qaeda” and “terrorism” from talking points given to Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Rice used those talking points to promote the lie that the Benghazi massacre resulted from a spontaneous mob protest rather than a planned terrorist attack. CBS adds that the CIA and FBI signed off on this false version of events.
This is all farce, of course. There being no more honor among con-men than among thieves, there comes a time in all busted conspiracies when the conspirators start pointing fingers at each other. With their guy safely reelected, this spectacle has finally drawn the Obamedia’s attention to the president’s Benghazi travesty. Let’s not get lost here. It is critical to step back and bear two things in mind: 

(a) All of the players here, including Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (both of whom the CBS report purports to absolve), are guilty of conspiracy — in this case, to mislead Americans about the cause of the attack and to aid the administration’s Islamist allies, whose objective is to impose sharia blasphemy standards on our country (a project on which the Obama administration has been colluding with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation since 2009). It was not for their own benefit that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Rice were, respectively, doctoring talking points and using them to create a false impression. Obama was the intended beneficiary. Patently the White House — which pitched Rice to the Sunday shows because Obama wanted to get the Mohammed-movie talking points publicly aired — was in the loop. 

(b) Given that the conspiracy is a cover-up, there is the more salient matter of what is being covered up? The brain-dead mantra in Washington is always — all together now — “The cover-up is worse than the crime.” That is not true here. To be sure, it is very serious that Rice was sent out to trumpet the false narrative; that Clapper apparently orchestrated the purge of information about al-Qaeda’s complicity; and that a compromised General David Petraeus appears to have knowingly misled Congress (that’s a felony) in his initial briefing about Benghazi on September 14. They and others involved in the cover-up should have a day of reckoning. But vastly more significant is what the administration was and is so desperate to obscure by the cover-up.
There are three areas of great concern:
1. The Benghazi attack was the natural result of Obama’s Libya policy.
Four Americans were killed in Benghazi as a direct result of President Obama’s unprovoked and, I believe, unconstitutional war in Libya. This foolish gambit had the easily foreseeable result of empowering Islamists, very much including violent jihadists who now have access to much of the Qaddafi arsenal, in addition to other arms and training they received from the U.S. and NATO in the mission to overthrow Qaddafi (then, an American ally).

Bleak Friday: Israeli Reservists Return Home Disappointed; Bibi Drops in Polls

As Wednesday night's cease-fire went into effect--amidst continuing rocket fire from Hamas--many Israeli reservists returned home disappointed that the government had not launched the ground attack for which they had been called up. One soldier, quoted by Ynetnews, said that "as a resident of Beersheba [which was hit by several rocket attacks] there is a sense of disappointment. (The violence) will repeat itself and we'll find ourselves back here again and again. They (government) should have let us complete the mission."

Much of the Israeli public agrees that a ground war would have been preferable to no war at all, given the continued threat of attacks from Gaza--and given that Hamas is declaring victory. A new poll suggests that support for Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has fallen sharply, by as much as 25 percent, since he accepted the cease-fire, likely after intense pressure from the Obama administration. A poll prior to the cease-fire indicated that 70% of Israelis opposed it, and wanted to fight to remove Hamas from Gaza altogether.
Once a lock for re-election early next year, Netanyahu is now considered politically vulnerable. He is at pains to convince his own voters that Israel came out of the conflict as a winner by destroying much of Hamas's rocket infrastructure--perhaps because Hamas was able to replenish and improve its arsenal with help from Iran since the end of Operation Cast Lead in January 2009. He may draw some comfort from the fact that his left-wing opponents are split with the imminent return of former opposition leader Tzipi Livni to the scene.

When Netanyahu was elected in 2009, he ran on the promise that only he, of all Israel's leaders, would be able to resist pressure from new U.S. President Barack Obama, whose intention to bully Israel was already clear. In this week's cease-fire, however, Netanyahu is seen to have buckled to pressure from the Obama administration. Paradoxically, the Iron Dome missile defense system, which helped defend Israeli cities from rocket fire, has become a source of leverage for Obama, since U.S. military aid helps Israel defray its heavy cost.
Most Israelis--and even, apparently, the White House--believe that the cease-fire will not last. Hamas had already violated it by shooting dozens of rockets into Israel past the 9 p.m. deadline on Wednesday; now the Palestinian terror organization is accusing Israel of firing at Palestinians near the border fence (Israel says that they were trying to infiltrate, and that it fired warning shots first). Hamas says that it will approach Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood government--which has been newly-emboldened as regional mediator--with its complaints.
The reason peace is unstable is not because Israel wants war--which, absent Hamas's repeated attacks, it would much prefer to avoid--but rather that Hamas's very purpose is to attack Israel. In effect, Hamas is now the Sunni wing of Iran's Shiite terror axis, and it attracts and maintains both political and financial support by attacking Israeli civilians, even though there are costs to Palestinian civilians (both from Hamas rockets and Israel's responses). Until Hamas--and Iran--are no longer a threat, war will continue to fester and flare.

My 2 dads: Childhood not so 'happy and gay'

By Mike McManus 

Conventional wisdom is that children of same-sex parents do as well as, or even better than children from intact, two-parent married households. Many studies make that assertion.
It is massively wrong according to a new, very large, thorough study published this week by the journal Social Science Research. It was written by Mark Regnerus, a scholar at the University of Texas. The New Family Structures Study, or NFSS, is a breakthrough report.

Regnerus compares how young adult children, aged 18-39, of a parent who has had a same-sex relationship fare on 40 different social, emotional and relational outcomes when compared with traditional and other families.
The biggest differences were between children of women who have had a lesbian relationship – and those raised by still-married biological parents.
Fully 69 percent of those with lesbian mothers were on welfare as children – four times the 17 percent in intact families ever had that experience. In fact, 38 percent of the adult children of lesbian mothers are currently on welfare versus only 10 percent of those with married parents. That’s the same 4-1 ratio.
Only 8 percent of adult children from intact homes were unemployed when interviewed in 2011 versus 28 percent with a lesbian parent.
What’s most shocking is that only two people of those with married parents were ever touched sexually by a parent or an adult – while 23 percent of those with a lesbian mother had that experience! Golly, they are 11 times more apt to be molested!
The design of the NFSS research was brilliant.

Most research on the impact of homosexual parenting has relied on interviews with same-sex parents who are from convenience samples.  For example, the National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study conducted last year “recruited entirely from self-selection from announcements posted at lesbian events, in women’s bookstores and in lesbian newspapers in Boston, Washington and San Francisco.”
Such a sample is biased toward including better-educated, wealthier people who visit bookstores. What about the less educated or less likely to be employed? They aren’t interviewed. Of course, the children of these more affluent parents are more apt to do well.
By comparison, NFSS asked 3,000 young adults if either of their parents had a same-sex relationship while they were growing up. Result: 175 reported their mother was in a homosexual relationship, and 73 said the same about their father. That’s about 1.7 percent, a figure comparable to other studies. The sampling was so carefully done that it included both those with listed phone numbers and those who only use cell phones (about half the total).
Only 23 percent said they had spent at least three years in the same household with a romantic partner of their mother; an additional 57 percent did so for at least four months.

Among those with a father in a homosexual relationship, fewer than 2 percent said they had spent at least three years in that household. These relationships are much more volatile and short lived, but neither compares with the stability of married heterosexual parents.
Also, by interviewing young adults of homosexual parents, we can see how the experience shaped their adult lives. This is vastly more useful information than asking volunteer same-sex parents if their kids are doing well.  Of course, they say yes.
More results: Three times as many young adults of lesbians were currently cohabiting as those with married parents (24 percent versus 9 percent). Even more young adults (31 percent) of divorced parents were living together. Twice as many from intact homes were employed full time as those with lesbian mothers.
Only 5 percent of those with married parents had considered suicide in the past year versus 12 percent of those with lesbian parents and 24 percent with homosexual fathers. That’s five times those from intact homes. Similarly, a young adult of married parents is less than half as likely to be in therapy “for a problem connected with anxiety, depression, or relationships” – as those with homosexual parents (8 percent versus 19 percent).

Only 12 percent of young adults with married parents had ever cheated while married or cohabiting, but a big 40 percent of adult children of lesbians had done so.
Just 8 percent of those from intact homes had ever been forced to have sex against their will versus 31 percent with lesbian parents and 25 percent of “gay” parents.
These are huge differences.
They should be cited by those opposed to same-sex marriages.
In the last two weeks, I helped gather signatures for a statewide referendum on whether to reverse a vote by the Maryland Legislature legalizing same-sex marriage.
I hope this information will give fresh ammunition to those trying to protect traditional marriage – and children.

Oath Keepers..It's Thanksgiving...Secede...?

Chris Duane_Semper Fi!

It's Thanksgiving. Our forefathers were thankful to live on a newly-discovered continent, and later they were thankful to live as freemen who had escaped the British Empire's rule and control over their lives.

Today we are thankful for what yet remains of the traditions which have marked our country's greatness over two Centuries. But many of us are harried somewhat as we have noticed that our great country is drifting toward collectivism and away from the individualism which forged and formed America as the greatest nation on earth, in all of earth's human history. Now people in all fifty States are talking about secession. It's driving the communists mad. While enjoying our holiday, let's look into the idea of secession vs collectivism. It will do the Pilgrim proud to hold such contemplations on this very special day. It also would please the ghost of Henry David Thoreau, don't you agree?

Secession is in the wind today, experiencing a surge after the November 06, 2012 elections. Many on the "right" are very fearful of the agenda of those on the "left", and to those who are awake to, and aware of, the reality that
both sides are equally dangerous
to American freedom, the whole messy political left-right-paradigm slime-bath is offensive and disgusting. Damn the Republicans and Damn the Democrats both to Hell, I say, and so do all three  or four other Americans who've figured this out. 

The idea of secession drives communists, socialists, and collectivists in general madly wild and passionately fearful. If you don't want to play their game of centralized control over society and culture, the average communist/collectivist sees you as a direct threat. He must control you via the state (government) or he sees you as a threat.

Most Americans showed clearly with the election that they want the collective way of life and they want a powerful central government to ensure that everyone, including those who do not wish to participate in their centralized government's authoritarian power games, must ante up and place their bets just like all the good little statist boys and girls. Your refusal to play their game is perceived as a threat to them, and it makes them defensive. Being as how defensiveness always attacks, they jab out at you for not joining into their view of societal adhesion.

To prove that I'm not exaggerating, I'll offer a novel idea which most Americans have never read, although it's a part of our heritage as Americans. It was written circa 1884 by an American libertarian philosopher named Herbert Spencer, in his immortal essay entitled "The Right To Ignore The State". I am predicting that the comments under this article shall be, uhm, er, "colorful" at the very least: Here is Spencer - 

As a corollary to the proposition that all institutions must be subordinated to the law of equal freedom, we cannot choose but admit the right of the citizen to adopt a condition of voluntary outlawry.  
If every man has freedom to do all that he wills, provided he infringes not the equal freedom of any other man, then he is free to drop connection with the state - to relinquish its protection, and to refuse paying toward its support. It is self-evident that in so behaving he in no way trenches upon the liberty of others; for his position is a passive one; and whilst passive he cannot become an aggressor. It is equally self-evident that he cannot be compelled to continue one of a political corporation, without a breach of the moral law, seeing that citizenship involves payment of taxes; and the taking away of a man's property against his will, is an infringement of his rights.  
Government being simply an agent employed in common by a number of individuals to secure to them certain advantages, the very nature of the connection implies that it is for each to say whether he will employ such an agent or not. If any one of them determines to ignore this mutual-safety confederation, nothing can be said except that he loses all claim to its good offices, and exposes himself to the danger of maltreatment - a thing he is quite at liberty to do if he likes. He cannot be coerced into political combination without a breach of the law of equal freedom; he can withdraw from it without committing any such breach; and he has therefore a right so to withdraw. 

To assess one's predisposition toward being either a statist or an individualist, one merely need read that passage over again about three or four times and think on its meaning. How one ultimately perceives the logic and philosophy contained in that brief mental exercise determines in a recognizable way one's predisposition as a statist or as an individualist.

No collectivist can enjoy reading the writings of this nation's Founders, or the writings of the 19th Century libertarians, while any individualist derives intense joy and hope in so reading. The Founders spoke of "unalienable rights" which come from Nature or Nature's God, and they codified those rights as coming from, deriving from, a higher authority than any man-made government. Collectivists, especially collectivists of the communist and socialist bent, hate and fear that kind of consciousness. To the statist, the very idea of a soul seceding from the collective government is a threat and must be eliminated. Hence Homeland Security's inherent psychological premise, and hence its hell-for-leather assault on patriotism and Constitutionalism and individualist dissent within our American society today.

For the strong in spirit, for the individualist, I'll offer this little brief film by Chris Duane of
Don't-Tread-On-Me. It's about personal secession from the futility of the "madding crowd".


Enjoy, and -- Happy Thanksgiving!

With a 'Salute!' to Chris Duane,

Obama Commits $6 Bil to Make Asia Green


via :Judicial Watch
In the midst of an economic crisis and a looming fiscal cliff, President Obama has generously committed $6 billion for a “sustainable energy” partnership with Asia. You can’t help but wonder what the commander-in-chief is thinking!
It’s bad enough that he’s blown hundreds of millions of dollars on failed clean energy programs in the United States (remember the $535 million Solyndra boondoggle) but now he’s asking American taxpayers to finance similar dubious projects 10,000 miles away. Check out the White House fact sheet announcing the brilliant plan, which is officially called the U.S.-Asia Pacific Comprehensive Partnership for a Sustainable Energy.

Its announcement was timed around President Obama’s tour of Asian Pacific countries this week. Under the plan the federal government will blow $6 billion over four years to bring “renewables and cleaner energy” to selected Asian nations. Details are still sketchy, but according to the White House announcement, this will occur because the cash will increase access to American technology, services and equipment.
The goal is to help Asia “implement energy infrastructure,” the feds claim. This is dire because energy and the environment are among the most pressing issues confronting our region, according to the White House fact sheet. Benefitting from Uncle Sam’s largess will be the tiny southeastern Asian country of Brunei (population around 400,000) and nearby Indonesia, which is huge in comparison with around 250 million residents.

The new “partnership will offer a framework for consolidating and expanding energy and environmental cooperation across existing regional forums to advance efforts to ensure affordable, secure, and cleaner energy supplies for the region,” the White House asserts. “Bilateral and multilateral energy and environmental initiatives are flourishing in the Asia Pacific, and the United States, in partnership with Brunei and Indonesia, will help coordinate and enhance these efforts, share best practices, and leverage existing initiatives across the various forums that undertake this work.”

Here are some examples of how this will all go down as per the administration; the State Department, which is responsible for implementing the nation’s foreign policy, will oversee a $1 million “energy capacity-building fund to support partnership activities via project preparation and technical assistance.” The U.S. government’s Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), which supposedly helps American businesses gain footholds in emerging markets, will provide up to $1 billion in financing for sustainable power and energy infrastructure projects and the Export-Import Bank of the United States, the country’s official export credit agency, will make $5 billion available to eligible countries.

Refuting the Seven Myths of the Radical Left About Thanksgiving


By Douglas W. Phillips and Elijah Brown
For close to a decade and a half, I have had the honor of leading more than a thousand people on Faith and Freedom Tours in Plymouth and the Boston area. Plymouth and the story of the Pilgrims which is honored through our national Thanksgiving Day celebration is one of the most precious stories of faith, fortitude, and the providential care of God for his Church in the history of Western Civilization. Not surprisingly, it is a historical record which is under great attack from revisionist historians and radical leftists groups. During my own tours of Plymouth, I have personally been heckled by representatives of radical Marxist Indian groups, have actually watched as markers which bring a false witness to the Pilgrim legacy have been placed on the most sacred historic locations of the Pilgrims at the urgency of these groups, and have spoken to members of the Plymouth community who have been physically assaulted by radical leftists when presenting the Pilgrim story. Some of these incidents have been documented in my article Plymouth Crock.
Behind this assault on the great Pilgrim legacy are a series of myths rooted in a historical revisionism which is not only at war with Christianity, but with a fair and reasonable account of the facts which inform our interpretation of the origins of the American nation in Plymouth. With the help of Elijah Brown, the following is presented to offer some perspective on the debate. 

Thanksgiving Day should stand out in our hearts as one of the most sacred and significant days of celebration of the year. The importance of Thanksgiving Day does not merely stem from its patriotic value as the oldest national celebration in American history. The day should not be observed simply to maintain a historical tradition that was cherished long before it was officially declared a national holiday. Thanksgiving Day is momentous because it not only calls our remembrance to the awe-inspiring work of God’s providence among our forbearers, but also allows us to connect with them in a real way by demanding a perpetual reflection on the providence of God in our own lives. Whether joyfully or with more than a little misgiving, on Thanksgiving Day the nation acknowledges that we are the heirs of our Pilgrim Fathers. Thanksgiving provides a national identification that should connect with every American on a deep and intimate level. It is a day that points to the firm conviction that every good and perfect gift comes from above, and that we are the residual beneficiaries of God’s favor bestowed upon, and celebrated by our ancestors, during that first Thanksgiving feast. As we gather around our family tables in celebration of God’s providence and provision we are the fulfillment of the hope of those godly men and women; we are the enduring testimony to the fruition of their multi-generational vision of faithfulness.

At the same time, it is perhaps for this very reason that the hallowed importance of Thanksgiving Day is diminished in our modern culture. The necessary reflection on God’s providence invoked on this day is something that the unregenerate heart simply cannot grasp, much less celebrate. The essential theme of man’s utter dependence on God is something to which men shaped by the egotistical philosophy of the enlightenment cannot relate. The exclusive adoration and deep fidelity to Jesus Christ practiced among the Pilgrim Fathers is something that this secular generation finds intolerable. For this reason, each year the observance of Thanksgiving Day has gradually diminished into a day celebrated by an excess of parades, food, and football. Thanksgiving Day has been even further eroded by the radical left who, out of their hatred for God, has revised history to distort and pervert America’s Christian heritage. While the Christmas holiday has inherited its fictitious flying reindeer and Easter has inherited a fictitious egg laying rabbit, it seems that Thanksgiving has inherited a fictitious historical narrative, equal to those other absurdities, and accompanied by a barrage of unwarranted ridicule and speculative doubt.

For this reason, there are many who view Thanksgiving Day as a national day of mourning. While Thanksgiving Day is a happy time, many cannot celebrate the occasion without a small feeling of shame for the oppressors and remorse for the oppressed. Of course, such an understanding of history is based on a fictitious and speculative view of Pilgrim/ Indian relations. It is incumbent on Christian families of this generation to debunk the myths invented by those who seek to divorce history from truth because they have rejected God, the sovereign author of history. By debunking these myths we hope to reflect on the true meaning of this day of thanksgiving and restore a culture that gives proper glory, honor, and thanksgiving to God. We confront these unhappy skeptics to defend the honor and preserve the legacies of the Englishmen and Native Americans that gathered in friendship during that first thanksgiving harvest. The myth-making ability of modern skeptics seems to be limitless, but here let us contend with those myths that have been the most widely propagated and generally believed concerning our Pilgrim Fathers and their Native American friends.
MYTH #1: The first thanksgiving was a pretext for “bloodshed, enslavement, and displacement that would follow in later decades.”
A diligent appeal to the actual historical source documents reveal a very different account of what took place between the Pilgrims and Indians. From the beginning, William Bradford relates that the Pilgrims and Indians made a binding peace accord which contained six principle terms: (1) That neither group would harm one another; (2) that any who does harm will be held accountable; (3) that they will not steal from one another and anything stolen will be restored, (4) that they would become military allies, protecting one another in instances of attack; (5) That neighboring confederates would also be welcomed to the peace accord, and (6) that when they met they would come unarmed. Both parties honored this treaty, which remained unbroken for over half a century following the first thanksgiving.
The Pilgrims treated each Native American tribe individually and never attacked any tribe unless they had been attacked first. Conflicts and wars that occurred prior to 1675, were always carried out by the Pilgrims in conjunction with their Native American allies, and always according to the terms of the treaty. If a Plymouth citizen treated an Indian improperly, they were tried in a court of law and punished. In 1638, the Colony of Plymouth hanged three colonists for the murder of a single Indian. In that same year a colonial court of law denied a town the right to retaliate against wrongs committed by an Indian tribe, because it was found that the town had committed an earlier violation of Indian rite.
In 1675, the peace accord was broken, but not by the Pilgrims. The treaty was broken by King Phillip of the Wampanoag tribe, who rejected Christianity and declared war on the Colonists. King Phillip’s first acts of aggression were carried out on Native Americans who remained friends with the Colonies. In addition, the colonists were by no means swift in declaring war against King Phillip. The hard decision came only after eight towns were attack in a period of three months; children were burned alive in their homes, and their parents subjected to cannibalistic ritual torture. King Phillip’s war was, per capita, the most devastating war ever to be fought on American soil. This bloody war marked a turning in the relations between the Indians and settlers.

MYTH #2: The first thanksgiving was not Christian and was not a thanksgiving.
Two original source documents provide first hand accounts of that first thanksgiving among the Pilgrims and their Indian friends. William Bradford writes of that time “they found the Lord to be with them in all their ways, and to bless their outgoings and incomings, for which let His Holy name have praise forever, to all posterity.”1 Edward Winslow relates that on that first thanksgiving “for three days we entertained and feasted... . yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want, that we often wish you partakers of our plenty.”2 The Pilgrims together with a large company of Indians celebrated three days of thanksgiving unto God for His providence in providing for them a land and a bountiful harvest. While it is not clear that the Indians present during the celebration believed in Jesus Christ, it is known that through the missionary efforts of the Pilgrims a great number of Native Americans, including their king, did believe. Not only was this gathering a time of giving thanks for an abundant harvest, their thanks was directed toward the God of Christianity for the harvest He had provided for them.

MYTH #3: The Pilgrim Fathers were racists who treated the Indians as an inferior race.
Racism as we understand it today is a modern invention predicated on an evolutionary view of man which understands various races as following similar, but differing paths of evolution. According to the evolutionary worldview, some races of men have more quickly evolved or have evolved better than others have. However, this way of thinking would have been foreign to the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth.
The Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth understood men and cultures in light of a biblical worldview. This means that they did not consider men as members of any particular race, but as men divided by tribes, tongues, and nations. Almost from the beginning, the Pilgrims and Indians enjoyed a relationship of common ground and mutual respect for one another.
Moreover, the Pilgrims invited Indians to partake in a desegregated society. Many Indians like Squanto, lived among the Pilgrims and were highly esteemed by the Pilgrims. There are records of Indians who were permitted to sit on the juries of the Pilgrims. By the middle of the seventeenth century, Harvard College accepted Native Americans as students, having as part of its original charter the education of the English and Indian youth of this country. The common schools and grammar schools established by the Pilgrims had accepted Indian children as students almost from the beginning of their existence.
MYTH #4: The primary reasons for the Mayflower voyage was to further the financial ambitions of the Pilgrims.
If an historian wanted to understand the reasons why the pilgrims risked everything to come to America, it would be expected that he might consider the reasons the Pilgrims themselves gave for coming to America. William Bradford’s Plymouth Plantation provided the following reasons: (1) there were threats of war in Holland and the Pilgrims did not want to become entangled in a foreign war; (2) there were not enough opportunities to support the multigenerational vision they shared for their families; (3) they desired to find a place where they would be able to preserve the faith among their children; and (4) they desired to come to America for the advancement and propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Pilgrims had a bold vision for a biblical family and a biblical community. They left Holland to be a “city on a hill”, an example of what God can do through a small group of faithful families. It is tragic that we find that many of the bad influences related to materialism, youth culture, entertainment, excess, and complacency that the Pilgrims sought to leave behind them in Holland, are the types of things many look forward to on Thanksgiving Day.
 MYTH #5: The Pilgrims stole land from the Indians.
When the Pilgrims arrived in America, the Native Americans had no concept of private land ownership. Nevertheless, the Pilgrims bought plots of land from the Indians anyway. In addition, the Pilgrims respected the borders of Indian Territories and even protected the land occupied by the Native Americans from other invading Native American tribes according to the peace accord. To this day, many of these original land contracts exist and can be seen in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Early historians like Bradford, Winslow, and Elliot also provide first hand accounts of these land transactions.
While there were possible instances of abuses among certain individuals, the general rule of law among the Pilgrims required the purchase of land at a fair price, the respect for land markers, and the observance of private property. Historian Alden Vaughan, although not always favorable to the Pilgrims, wrote, “There is no evidence that any New England land for which the native claimant existed was taken under the guise of vacuum domicilium.... Plymouth Colony set a patterns of Puritan land acquisition that was later observed by Massachusetts Bay and its off shoots.”3
MYTH #6: The Pilgrims were somber, rigid, and joyless group of people.
If the Pilgrims had been somber, cold, ridged, and joyless people, they would have had legitimate reasons for it. In England, they had been persecuted and forced to flee to Holland where they were strangers in a strange land. When they embarked for America, they spent almost two months on the Mayflower below deck, and were not permitted to venture above the deck of the ship. Once they landed in America the winter came upon them so fast that half of them died the first winter. During this time they buried their dead at night under the cover of darkness to hide their numbers from the Indians who they feared might raid them.
Yet, in spite of all of this, the Puritans were always joyful, kind, and longsuffering. They wore colorful and fashionable clothing and enjoyed entertaining and feasting in the company of both friends and strangers. They were diligent to care for the poor and the sick even among those who had persecuted and ridiculed them with the vilest language. They were hard working and industrious, but always looking for opportunities to enjoy the company of others. The first thanksgiving itself provides a window into the kind of happy people the Pilgrims were. On this occasion they aside three days to celebrate by sporting, entertaining, showing hospitality, giving gifts, and enjoying the plentiful harvest.
MYTH #7: The Pilgrims came to America for religious liberty, but denied it to others.
Contrary to what is now commonly taught and widely accepted, the Pilgrims did not come to America to gain religious liberty. To be sure, this was a primary reason for leaving England, but the Pilgrims had enjoyed religious liberty in Holland for over 12 years. Yet they came to America with the express goal of “the advancement and propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Religious liberty with pluralism today was never an idea that would have been tolerated among the Pilgrim and Puritan congregations. God had commanded, “You shall have no other Gods in my presence.” Since God is omnipresent, this meant that the public worship of idols could not be tolerated.
However, this does not mean that the Pilgrims were indifferent to those who did not believe in Jesus Christ. From the beginning there were non-Christians, and differing denominations that lived among the Pilgrims at Plymouth. They were never ostracized or denied equal rights under the law. William Bradford relates one story in which a group of non-puritans complained that it offended their conscience to work on Christmas day, as the Pilgrims did not celebrate Christmas. As it was a matter of conscience, they were allowed to take the day off for the observance until they were taught otherwise. While they did not adhere to modern notions of religious pluralism, they did not persecute those who did not share their convictions.

Ultimately, these myths do not originate from a desire to cast the Pilgrim Fathers into doubt, as much as it is an attempt to cast doubt upon the God of the Pilgrim Fathers. The skeptic in America is like a man who is dying of thirst while floating on an ocean of water, because he is a member of a civilization that was miraculously established by the providence of God, but he finds no place for himself in it. His only alternative is to invent a false view of history that exalts the idea of a “noble savage” who loves and worshiped the creature rather than the Creator.
As we gather around the family table for Thanksgiving Day we should consider the fact that we are the fruition of God’s blessing poured out on our Pilgrim Fathers. The liberty that we enjoy is a product of the first chartered documents of the Pilgrims who, beginning with the Mayflower Compact, examined the Scriptures and drafted these charters on principles of self-government and freedom under God. As we lift up our hearts in song and thanksgiving to God we affirm the success of their multi-generational vision; gathering in confirmation that their toil and hardship was not in vain. On Thanksgiving Day we gather as living testimonies of what God can do through a small number of faithful families who forsake all else to advance the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
