The Hand of God is always there

In the middle of life’s struggle, it is stories like these that come along to prove that, while so many of us wait for heroes to deliver us from the evil of current Western society, we have bypassed the real Hero of all life on Earth

The Hand of God is always there

Even amid the doom and gloom seeping out from the deliberate destruction of America by its own president; even in the despair that comes along with the increasing perversion of the current Pop Culture, the Hand of God is always at work.

Yes, the Marxists, who have thrown in with ISIS, are on a world march.  Yes, there is much evil rocking the world, destroying peace of mind.

Yes, the ongoing battle of good against evil continues, just as it has for all time.  But True Believers know at heart how it will end.

The Hand of God is there for all to see if only we recognize it when we see it.

The Hand of God turns up in the most unexpected of places,  and when it does,  it inspires even the most despairing to carry on.

It is not stories about Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, England’s David Cameron, Canada’s would-be Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or any of the self-serving politicians of the Western world that get to go viral over the World Wide Web.

As Canada Free Press (CFP) writer/author Jerry A.  Kane proved once again on Sunday,  it is inspiring stories like the one about how a tiny, one-eyed Chihuahua with no bottom teeth put his master James Wathen, a terminally ill patient at Baptist Health Corbin in Corbin, Kentucky, on the mend,  making a complete medical turnaround.

“ Wathen had stopped eating and had become weak and frail. His condition kept deteriorating, and he was barely able to talk. Wathen managed to whisper to a nurse his wish to see his dog, Bubba, just one more time. The 73-year-old hadn’t seen his one-eyed Chihuahua with no bottom teeth since he arrived by ambulance at the Whitley County hospital six weeks earlier.” (Jerry A. Kane, CFP, Oct. 19, 2014)



“One of our social workers realized it was mourning the loss of the dog that was making our patient even worse and emotionally unhealthy, we pulled out all the stops and found the dog,” said Kimberly Probus, Chief Nursing Officer at Baptist Health Corbin.

“When time is of the essence, administrative policies can be cumbersome and time consuming, so it’s often easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. So a group of nurses decided to track down Bubba and arrange a reunion with Wathen, even though the hospital had a rule against pets.

“After a series of phone calls, the nurses found out that Bubba had been turned over to the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter and then subsequently placed in a foster home because of his age. The nurses discovered that Bubba had also recently fallen ill. He too had stopped eating about a week before they made contact with the shelter to arrange the reunion.

“The dog quit eating a week ago, which is very strange. The dog didn’t know where James was and James didn’t know where the dog was and, believe it or not, they both stopped eating at about the same time,” said Mary-Ann Smyth, Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter President

“The nurses arranged for the shelter to bring Bubba to the hospital Saturday, October 11.

“He was so sad at first. We had him wrapped in a baby blanket and he was shivering. The minute we got about 20 steps from this guy’s room—I kid you not—his little head went up. His eyes got real bright and he was like a different dog,” Smyth said.

“Bubba’s mood changed immediately upon seeing Wathen, and Wathen began crying when he saw Bubba.

“They didn’t think James was going to make it. I was 10 feet from his bed and you could barely understand him because he was so hard to hear. The nurse had to lean up right against his face to hear what he was saying,” Smyth said.

“During their 30-minute reunion, Wathen gradually began to improve. He slowly perked up and his mood changed significantly as he petted and played with Bubba on his bed.

“When Bubba was handed to James he started to cry and then Bubba started to snuggle James and it makes you realize that animals are not just pets they are loved ones,” wrote Deanna Myers, Knox Whitley Animal Shelter Director, on her Facebook page.

The visit seemed to do wonders for Wathen. Nurses reported the next day that he seemed like a new person. When Bubba returned for a second visit on Tuesday, Wathen’s turnaround was complete. He was now sitting up and eating.

“Both are so happy to see each other and both seem to be doing better! The power of love can go along way!” the shelter posted on its Facebook page

Seeing the positive impact Bubba has had on Wathen, Baptist Health Corbin is revising its pet visitation policy to ensure Bubba will have visitation privileges.

“I hope this story will show to people the tremendous difference that animals can make in people’s lives,” Smyth said.

“Hospital administrators are working to implement a pet visitation policy for similar situations now that they’ve witnessed first hand the healing power pets provide their owners.”

That a pining—to the point of not eating— one-eyed dog with no teeth on the bottom can revolutionize hospital visitation policy is a miracle that cut straight through cold-hearted bureaucracy.
And there are other stories gone viral, making the masses take heart.

After last March, an ordinary bus stop in Neath, Cardiff, will never be quite the same.

86-year-old Franco Gorno’s true story, written by Bianca London at the Daily Mail, is a reminder that you never know who’s riding on the same bus as you; that boredom and desperation are not the only things carried in the hearts of your fellow passengers; that sometimes hidden in the tedious of the commonplace, comes lasting inspiration.

Franco’s enduring love for his lifetime mate Joan, whose 2013 death left him “forever broken-hearted”,  touched the heart of an entire village.

All heroes of the world’s celebrated lovers like Shakespeare’s Romeo are youthful.  Franco Gorno, 86, who makes a 100-mile-round trip each month to a bus stop in Neath, Cardiff, to leave flowers and poignant notes in memory of his wife, Joan, who died last year, is forever young at heart.

“They met at a bus stop 2-3 weeks before Christmas 1950, married two years after and had four children.” (Daily Mail, March 26, 2014)

“Even in the daily grinding rush of the to and fro, bus commuters have been left teary-eyed when they stopped to read Franco’s moving note left on a bunch of purple tulips: “Rest in peace my darling.  I’ll see you soon.”

Down through the annals of time, the love of the more famous Rudolph Valentinos has faded.  Over 64 long years, Franco’s never did.

“The note among the purple tulips reads: ‘Joan and I met right here in this shelter 2-3 weeks before Xmas 1950.  We married two years later.

‘Joan, my beloved, passed away on 9-3-2013 and broke my heart forever!”

‘Rest in peace my darling.  I’ll see you soon, I’ll be 87 soon so I will not be long…God Bless.’

“Grandfather-of-four Franco told how he makes the monthly trip in memory of Joan.

“He said, ‘Every month or so I go there and lay flowers because it is the place that I met her.

‘I do it because I know she is up there looking down at me.  It is quite a journey for me, don’t forget I am 86.’

Some people carve their names in the bark of an oak tree, but Franco Gorno’s message left at a bus stop reminds us that “Love conquers all”.

And then only yesterday, it was the story of 85-year-old Bob Davey, who defied death threats from Satanists to spend 22 long years returning a 1,000-year-old derelict church to its former glory. (Daily Mail, Oct. 20, 2014)

...”It has been struck by a German bomb, torn apart by American GIs and left in squalor by a pagan cult.

“So when the ruins of an ancient church were discovered in thick woodland by Bob Davey, he could have been forgiven for thinking its fate had already been sealed.

“Instead, the determined church warden used his retirement to embark on a 22-year crusade to return the dilapidated building to its former glory – despite receiving a death threat from the cult.

“But even he was surprised when his noble DIY effort threw up an unexpected gift, unearthing ancient paintings inside its ivy-covered walls.

“The images depict the Holy Trinity and the Last Judgment and are thought to have been created in 1090, soon after the Norman Conquest.

“Believed to be the oldest wall paintings in Britain, they have seen the tiny church become an international tourist attraction. They have even earned Mr Davey, 85, an MBE after Prince Charles made several visits to the church.

“Mr Davey heard about the tower in 1992 when his late wife Gloria came across it on a ramble near Houghton-on-the-Hill, Norfolk, with her WI group.

“Thought to have been last used in the 1930s, it had no roof, door or windows. Mr Davey and his wife had to push through piles of rubbish outside to get in.

“They were horrified to find that a satanic temple and pagan altar had been made in the church, which was built around 1000 AD.

“Mr Davey managed to gain protected status for the church, then sold his antiques business so he could work on its restoration.

“He said: ‘I feel I have a relationship with the building. I have got a funny feeling that I was always meant to save it.’

“Recounting his first encounter with the property and the pagan imagery within, Mr Davey said: ‘This annoyed me intensely. I’ve been a Christian all my life and wasn’t putting up with this on my patch.’

“Because the site was still consecrated he was able to start services straight away, the first being a purification event following the pagan rituals.

“He initially had to guard the property at night to deter the cult members, who once drove a car at him and sent him a death threat. He even enlisted the Territorial Army to guard it for a time after the pagans smeared the walls with blood.

“In spite of some local opposition, he built a road to the church under an old law stating that any consecrated site should have an access route.

“He has also faced opposition from church authorities, who initially wanted the building to be torn down.

“It was during his attempts to fix a wall that had been cracked by a German bomb that Mr Davey noticed the unique paintings.

“He soon realised the walls were covered in dazzling religious murals that had been covered in whitewash plaster.

“A large section of the artwork is yet to be uncovered as Mr Davey battles to raise the funds for the specialist teams needed to remove the plaster.

“He added: ‘It’s cost me a lot of money, it’s cost me no end of time, but look what I’ve got out of it. You’ve got to do something when you retire – you can’t sit around watching the telly all day.’

Imagine a tireless 85-year-old who devoted the whole of his retirement to restore a thousand-year-old church to its former glory, telling a newspaper reporter when he accomplished the near impossible that “you can’t sit around watching the telly all day”.

The watching world should have no hesitation on bestowing the old Irish blessing on Mr. Davey’s head: “May you be in Heaven an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.”
To their own testimony, stories like Bubba’s, Franco’s and Bob’s are the ones most beloved by readers .

In the middle of life’s struggle, it is stories like theirs that come along to prove that, while so many of us wait for heroes to deliver us from the evil of current Western society, we have bypassed the real Hero of all life on Earth,  the most loyal Hero of them all, Who is always there for all of those looking.

The Hand of God is everywhere.

Prepare Your Children for “a Lifetime of Surveillance”

Prepare Your Children for “a Lifetime of Surveillance”

The data mining company inBloom died, killed off by parent opposition, but the data mining industry is not dead. Far from it. It is growing and metastasizing as investors see new opportunities to profit from the data surreptitiously collected while children are using computers, taking tests online, chatting online, and practicing for state tests online.

According to this article in Model View Culture, investors have poured billions of dollars into new technologies to track students’ movements.

Designed for the “21st century” classroom, these tools promise to remedy the many, many societal ills facing public education with artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, and other technological advancements.

They are also being used to track and record every move students make in the classroom, grooming students for a lifetime of surveillance and turning education into one of the most data-intensive industries on the face of the earth. The NSA has nothing on the monitoring tools that education technologists have developed in to “personalize” and “adapt” learning for students in public school districts across the United States.

The federal government and the law called FERPA (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, passed in 1974) were supposed to prevent invasions of privacy, but the U.S. Department of Education loosened the FERPA regulations in 2011 to make it easier for vendors to data mine. Make no mistake, this is big business. It will not easily be stopped.

“Adaptive”, “personalized” learning platforms are one of the most heavily-funded verticals in education technology. By breaking down learning into a series of tasks, and further distilling those tasks down to a series of clicks that can be measured and analyzed, companies like Knewton (which has raised $105 million in venture capital), or the recently shuttered inBloom (which raised over $100 million from the Gates Foundation) gather immense amounts of information about students into a lengthy profile containing personal information, socioeconomic status and other data that is mined for patterns and insights to improve performance. For students, these clickstreams and data trails begin when they are 5 years old, barely able to read much less type in usernames and passwords required to access their online learning portals.

These developments are alarming. Why should commercial vendors have the right to monitor our every move? Why should the government? This must be stopped, and the successful fight against inBloom proved that it can be stopped. Parents will have to inform themselves and protect their children by demanding legislation that puts an end to the surveillance of their children at school and at home, whenever they are online.

ALERT: U.S. Army researchers at USAMRIID confirm Ebola variant was airborne in 1990

ALERT: U.S. Army researchers at USAMRIID confirm Ebola variant was airborne in 1990
Ebola-Virus-Patient

U.S. Army virologists working at USAMRIID (U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases) [1] confirmed in 1990 that a strain of Ebola was airborne and could spread through air ducts, resembling the contagiousness of the flu.

Details of the airborne transmission and the “nuking” of all the primates in an entire research center are detailed beginning on page 273 of The Hot Zone by Richard Preston, a non-fiction documentary book based on dozens of detailed interviews with top military virologists. This non-fiction book was called “A riveting nonfiction thriller” by the New York Times.

The book is described by Internet Scientific Publications [2] as follows:

In 1989, Reston, VA — one of the most famous U.S. planned communities located about 10 miles from Washington DC — stood at the epicenter of a potential biological disaster. This well-known story was narrated by Richard Preston in a bone chilling account related to the recognition and containment of a devastating tropical filovirus at a monkey facility — the Reston Primate Quarantine Unit.

The outbreak of Ebola Reston, and its documenting in The Hot Zone is also described in a USA Today article entitled “25 years ago, a different Ebola outbreak – in USA.” [3]

In a wild attempt at revisionist history, the Obama administration is today telling us that Ebola can’t be airborne; that it can’t spread via contaminated surfaces; and that we are all in no real danger from it. The testimony of these U.S. Army virologists from 1990 tells a very different story of what happened with a strain of Ebola that was named “Reston” because it got out of control in Reston, Virginia and was barely contained. The threat from any strain of Ebola, we are told, concerns how rapidly it can mutate and adapt to new hosts while becoming airborne.

To eliminate any possibility of being accused of perpetrating a hoax or misquoting the scientists, I have included un-altered photographs of the relevant pages from the printed book below. The book is also available for sale on Amazon.com and you can purchase it and read it for yourself.

What you are about to read is real. Bolding emphasis added.

Cited from “The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston, beginning on page 272 of the soft cover print edition…

“Ebola… jumped quickly from room to room… a lot like influenza”

What happened in that building was a kind of experiment. Now they would see what Ebola could do naturally in a population of monkeys living in a confined space, in a kind of city, as it were.

The Ebola Reston virus jumped quickly from room to room, and as it blossomed in the monkeys, it seemed to mutate spontaneously into something that looked quite a lot like influenza. But it was an Ebola flu.

The monkeys died with great quantities of clear mucus and green mucus running from their noses, mixed with blood that would not clot. Their lungs were destroyed, rotten and swimming with Ebola virus. They had pneumonia. When a single animal with a nosebleed showed up in a room, generally 80 percent of the animals died in that room shortly afterward. The virus was extraordinarily contagious in monkeys.

“…could look like the flu… a different strain could appear in a month’s time… drifted through the air-handling ducts”

The Institute scientists suspected that they were seeing a mutant strain of Ebola, something new and a little different from what they had seen just a month before, in December, when the Army had nuked the monkey house. It was frightening — it was as if Ebola could change its character fast — and could look like the flu. As if a different strain could appear in a month’s time.

The clinical symptoms of the disease served as a reminder of the fact that Ebola is related to certain kinds of flu-like illnesses seen in human children. It seems that the virus could adapt quickly to new hosts, and that it could change its character spontaneously and rapidly as it entered a new population.

Ebola apparently drifted through the building’s air-handling ducts. By January 24, it had entered Room B, and monkeys in that room started going into shock and dying with runny noses, red eyes, and masklike expressions on their faces. In the following weeks, the infection entered rooms I, F, E, and D, and the animals in these rooms virtually all died.

USAMRIID concluded that Ebola can spread through the air”

John Coleus certainly caught the virus when he cut himself with a bloody scalpel, no question about that. What is more worrisome is that the others did NOT cut themselves, yet the virus still entered their bloodstreams. It got there somehow. Most likely it entered their blood through contact with the lungs. It infected them through the air.

When it became apparently to the Army researchers that three of the four men who became infected had not cut themselves, just about everyone at USAMRIID concluded that Ebola can spread through the air.

Don’t believe the Ebola lies of the Obama administration. A strain of Ebola was already airborne 14 years ago. It could rapidly become airborne again. Prepare now with the free, downloadable MP3 audio files at www.BioDefense.com

Does This Look Like a President That Can Save You From Ebola?

Does This Look Like a President That Can Save You From Ebola?


hope change obey


The Blaze is reporting that during President Barack Obama’s speech held in Maryland at a Democratic campaign rally, crowd members, almost exclusively of an audience made up Blacks headed for the exits as Obama began to speak. Reuters reported  that this act  “underscored his continuing unpopularity” .http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/10/19/during-obamas-speech-at-democratic-campaign-rally-crowd-does-something-weird/



Most Democratic candidates have had the good sense to avoid Obama like he has Ebola. However, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, who’s running for governor, is not one of them.

As Obama spoke at the rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington, a “steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium,” Reuters reported. Obama was heckled as he attempted on behalf of Anthony Brown.



More hecklers attacked the President. Race is not a significant issue when it comes to assessing the lethality of the Obama presidency when it comes to his administration.  Thank God that these Americans exercised their First Amendment right to voice their displeasure and fear of a President who is clearly every American’s most significant threat.  This is a case of Americans banding together and saying in unison, “Enough”!  From three thousand miles away, I lend my voice in support as should all Americans.

We desperately need to band together as Americans to stand up to the globalist tyranny being perpetrated against the American people by this administration. God bless these wonderful and brave people for their bravery and commitment to our ideals as Americans. Let this be a rallying cry. It might be too late but, by God, we can sure as hell try and follow the example of these people.



As we sit here in our homes and bemoan the fact that Obama has imperiled the nation due to his mishandling of the Ebola crisis by not shutting down air travel from West Africa, we lose sight of the fact that Obama has been public enemy number one since the inception of his Presidency.

Many of us in the alternative media have long pointed out how this politically inept and inexperienced man has illegitimately occupied the White House.

Since Obama took office in January of 2009, America has been under the most serious and constant barrage of blitzkrieg attacks in her entire history. Not only was Obama grossly under qualified to be president based upon his experience, he was not eligible to even run for the highest office in the land.

The following article summarizes many of the documented issues I have raised, in only the past several weeks, about President Obama and his subsequent leadership failures.

In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson accusing King George of his crimes against the American colonists, I bring forth a summary of the same kinds of charges against King Obama. I would ask that if you agree with ANY of the following allegations, that you share your concerns with your friends and family and then draft a letter to your Congressman imploring him/her to draw up articles of impeachment against Obama for treason and sedition. Encourage your friends and family to do the same.With these kinds of events happening in places like Maryland, the worm has turned. We have a chance for a push back in the brief window left before these midterm elections.

Can America Name One Positive Thing That Obama Has Done for the American Middle Class?

forward

I think all of us would be hard-pressed to find an individual who could tell us with a straight face what Obama has done to help the American middle class. In fact, when we take a look at the Obama administration and its misguided policies, this administration has created a wide swath of destruction towards the American people reminiscent of what General Sherman did to the South in his now infamous “March to the Sea” during the Civil War.

The Military

Any discussion about the welfare of the nation must begin an end with an analysis of military strengths and weaknesses. Generally speaking, an athletic team is only as good and performs only as well, as the quality of coaches leading that team. The same can be said for the military. Along these lines, Obama has decimated the leadership of the military.

Since the beginning of 2013, he has fired 16 naval commanders and a much greater number of generals when it comes to the combined forces of the Marine Corps and the Army. Never before in the history of this country has a president so devastated a theater of war such as Obama has done, in Afghanistan, where he has removed commanders, one right after the other.

 

Obama has replaced these commanders with less experienced subordinates, thus, tremendously weakening our military.

For the first time in American history, Obama has allowed Russian troops to train on American soil. And this “training” comes on the heels of when Russia threatened to nuke America if it dared to invade Iran. Based upon the Russian 2012 threat, America should be in a constant state of military readiness, not be training Russian soldiers who are self-declared enemies of the American people.

Even more incredibly, Obama has directed FEMA to engage in a bilateral agreement to train 15,000 Russian troops on American soil. This makes no absolutely no sense whatsoever. Why would a domestic emergency response agency be training with Russian combat soldiers? There can only be one answer; These troops are going to be needed for the enforcement of the upcoming martial law which will include participating in typical FEMA disaster activities such as food and water distribution, relocation to “housing centers”, etc. Based on this unwarranted agreement between FEMA and the Russians, many of us have concluded that Obama is going to use these troops to engage in gun confiscation and all the very bad things that could follow such an action.  

At a time when America has been threatened with nuclear annihilation, Obama has gone so far as to remove the two leaders of our nuclear arsenal by using such ridiculous allegations as one of the men was using a counterfeit poker chip. If this president has time to consider what constitutes a counterfeit poker chip in a harmless poker game, he is spending too much time on the golf course and not enough time doing his job. What is more likely, is that this is a deliberate move to weaken the leadership of our nuclear arsenal leadership. As a result, our national security has been compromised and all Americans are less safe today than they were six years ago when Obama assumed the presidency?

These are the actions of a traitor


Devastating Our Healthcare

The magic number for healthcare appears to be just under three, because just about three times our present cost is what most people, being forced to pay to convert to Obamacare. I pay just under $500 a month to insure my family. When I went online and used the Obamacare cost calculator, I discovered that I would be paying over $1300 a month for my family’s health care.

I remember listening to the Hannity radio show as he was interviewing LA attorney, Jennifer Hudson, who is four months pregnant. Hudson stated she was dropped from her health carrier and that Obamacare was going to cost her more than three to four times when she is presently paying.

Didn’t Obama say ” if you like your healthcare, and you like your doctor, you get to keep your healthcare and you get to keep your doctor under my health care.” Didn’t this Manchurian candidate also say ” a family of four is going to save an average of $2500 per year under my plan”.

There are so many lies tied up in Obama’s previous two statements, that it is difficult to know where to begin. Let’s just suffice it to say that at least 16 million Americans are going to be forced to convert to Obamacare and that doesn’t even begin to cover the number of private healthcare carriers who are going to dump their insured customers in order to save themselves the expense of providing an ever-expanding healthcare coverage under Obamacare rules and regulations. Further, most Americans who are converting to Obamacare are suffering from sticker shock. And for those who can’t afford the new premiums, well…, they will just have to go to jail under Obamacare regulations which requires each citizen to carry the federally mandated coverage.

Why isn’t the corporate-controlled mainstream media asking Obama why are over 1,300 of his preferred corporate campaign providers and their employees exempted from mandatory participation in Obamacare? Why isn’t the media asking Obama why he and Congress are not forced to use the very same “health product” that they have forced down the throats of American citizens? This is a clear case of rules for thee, but not for me. If the American people were fully aware of the duplicitous nature of Obamacare, there would be an erosion of confidence in government, even above and beyond the record levels of unhappiness we are witnessing today. When people lose respect for leaders and their policies, an air of civil disobedience rears its ugly head. This is why the corporate controlled media will never challenge the president on these issues. This is a communist takeover by stealth.


Attacks Upon Our Food and Water

I have previously documented how Obama is moving to control the food supply in the United States. The Obama forces have swat-teamed the Amish, raw milk producers and several private food producers, while leaving the large corporate farms alone.

After making 50 million Americans dependent upon food stamps, Obama is allowing Congress to make significant cuts among this vulnerable population group, with no transition period, and Obama could have prevented this action with an Executive Order. I am not in favor of the welfare state. However, as one cannot expect a heroin addict to quit the drug by going cold turkey, we cannot expect 50 million poor people to make this kind of adjustment with no transition period. I believe that this is a provocative strategy designed to get protesters in the streets where all resistance will be crushed and Obama’s Bolshevik revolution can continue unabated.

Under Obama’s leadership, the EPA is using their self-proclaimed power to control water. And when one controls the flow and usage of water, one also controls property rights as well as food production. The EPA has announced that they control all forms of water ranging from streams, lakes, rivers, oceans, standing water, well water and water of any variety regardless of the source. This is the underlying impetus which is providing the motivation for the two counties in northern California to withdraw from California.

The Deindustrialization of the United States

Since Obama has been elected president, he has been on a mission to impose the phony science of global warming which serves to justify his extreme control of all industry and personal usage of energy. Unable to get his cap and trade policies through the Congress, Obama has begun to implement his agenda through executive orders at the state and local level. Hence, we are starting to see some citizen push back in the previously mentioned California and Oregon situations.

From my research on the Gulf oil explosion, I learned that Obama was once a member of the Joyce Foundation along with Al Gore and Valerie Jarrett. Together, the three parties created the Chicago Climate Exchange which was designed to be a $10 trillion dollar venture to administrate all cap and trade within the United States. I believe that this why Obama was selected to be president by the bankers.

As I have documented in recent articles, if Obama has his way, we will be living in an 1880’s hellish nightmare reminiscent of the opening scene of the movie, The Hunger Games.

Economic Devastation

Under Obama, he has increased deficit spending by a factor of more than two, when his major campaign promise was to balance the budget. Even more disturbing, under Obama’s watch, the government is setting up to steal retirement accounts as I have documented that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has begun to “borrow” from select federal retirement accounts.

More disturbing is the fact that Obama has done nothing about the mammoth derivatives debt, totaling at least one quadrillion dollars which is 16 times the value of the entire planet, and the interest continues to grow at an exponential rate. The derivatives debt plus the unfunded liabilities that, which totals $238 trillion, will absolutely crush the economic system of this country. This is by design.

Obama Has Outwardly Declared War Against the American People

Under Obama’s watch, the Department of Homeland Security has armed themselves with 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and 2700 armored personnel carriers. Even such innocuous federal entities, such as the National Weather Service, are arming themselves to the teeth. Obama has expanded the TSA tyranny, which violates all Americans Fourth Amendment rights, to the streets, the bus depots and certain highways. The Obama administration has purchased hundreds of concrete, bulletproof checkpoints which will be placed on the nation’s highways.

In the recent government shutdown, Obama forbade pastors from administering to their Christian flock in the military. However no other religion, including Islam, received such a prohibition. Under Obama, the Department of Homeland Security has declared Bible-believing Christians to be domestic terrorists. And let’s not forget that the American people have been saddled with the two most virulent forms tyrannical legislation in our nations history, the NDAA, in which Americans can be abducted by the government off of the street with no due process of law. And of course, there is Executive Order 13603, in which the President can take control of all resources and conscript all Americans to perform any duty as he sees fit.

This is the stuff that martial law is made of.

Conclusion

These events only represent the very tip of the iceberg. Again I ask the question, “can anyone name one thing that Obama has done since taking office, which in some way benefit the American middle class?” And I have not even touched upon Fast and Furious, the Benghazi scandal, the IRS harassment of the Tea Party Scandal, the government spying on AP reporters scandal, the NSA scandal and the mysterious deaths of Michael Hastings and Andrew Breitbart. Most, if not all of these scandals, are worse than anything Richard Nixon did in relation to the Watergate scandal.

Hitler would be jealous regarding the overwhelming nature of Obama’s blitzkrieg attack upon average Americans. And before you write to me and tell me that Obama is merely a stooge, and I agree he is a stooge controlled by bankers, please realize that we have to fight this battle at the level that it is occurring. The situation is so dire, that most Americans don’t even know who’s responsible for the attacks upon their lifestyles and their pocketbooks. This was the motivation for this article.

America is in need of a game-changing event. Perhaps these brave people in Maryland have lit a fire. However such an event would require a collective action and the only medium of communication and ultimately collective resistance against this tyranny, will soon be gone because Obama and his minions are seeking to control the Internet. Obama needs to be impeached and he needs to be impeached right now.

I used to be foolish enough to believe that we could turn back this type of tyranny by collectively and effectively using the political tools at our disposal. However, I have come to realize that we are playing in a game that has absolutely no rules. There is absolutely no higher authority that the people can take their case to that hasn’t already been corrupted by the bankers who have successfully hijacked our government and control the executive branch. On my talk show, I employ a catch phrase which states “Freeing America one enslaved mind at a time”. It may no longer be possible to save America, but you can save yourself by properly adapting through proper preparation and by embracing your spirituality in which you can provide your soul with a degree of permanence that the American government can never provide for you.

I ask you America, does this look and sound like a President that can save you, or even wants to save you from Ebola?

by Dave Hodges

Politically Correct Insanity

Politically Correct Insanity


It is my contention that political correctness has so deeply infiltrated American society that it has affected our approach to defending ourselves against Islamic terrorism, deadly epidemics and even presidential assassins.

In the past, AIDS, which, in spite of the massive publicity campaign waged by the homosexual community, was never a great threat to heterosexuals – unless, of course, they were the really cheap and stupid drug addicts who shared hypodermic needles – nobody in public life ever had the guts to suggest that those with the disease be quarantined.

Today, because those spreading Ebola are West Africans, nobody has the gumption to suggest curtailing flights from that part of the world to America, lest we be accused of being a nation of racists. At the same time, if the epidemic was centered in Scandinavia and we stopped all incoming flights from Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen, I very much doubt if we would be condemned for practicing blondophobia.

The other major export from that particularly noxious part of the world is Islamic terrorism. Again, we are so frightened of appearances when it comes to Arabs and Muslims that we refuse to engage in racial profiling (which is otherwise known as being rational in a world in which 90% of the violence is committed by young males named Mohammad who look a great deal like Osama bin Laden) or to even risk referring to “Islamic terrorism” as such, preferring to pass it off as “workplace violence.”

That brings us to Omar Gonzalez, who hopped the Pennsylvania Avenue fence and made it all the way into the White House while carrying a knife before being brought down and disarmed. Although as my friend Ron Kessler has made clear in his books about the Secret Service, there has been a recent history of dangerous cost-cutting by a number of Service chiefs, I have my own theory as to the reason security broke down so dramatically in this case. I believe the agents spotted a Hispanic racing across the White House lawn, and instead of expecting commendations for shooting him, they envisioned being brought up before a congressional committee of political opportunists and facing trumped-up charges for over-reacting to a potential threat.

Speaking of Ron Kessler, in his latest book, “The First Family Detail,” he reports that even though they both insist they’re conservative cost-cutters and always having the American taxpayer foremost in mind, whenever Ted Cruz or Rand Paul shows up for an interview at Fox, they are invariably accompanied by an entourage of five or six aides, although the customary number of toadies, even when it comes to liberal lawmakers, is no more than two.

That is why I have come to believe that no matter how much Republicans may talk about cutting the size and cost of the federal government, they’re really only talking about when the Democrats are in charge. Besides, it goes entirely against human nature – and, all evidence to the contrary, politicians are human beings – for any politician to ever crave less power or fewer fawning acolytes on the payroll than his or her predecessor.

To absolutely nobody’s surprise, the Government Accountability Institute recently disclosed that over the past two years Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of the daily intelligence briefings. But that didn’t stop him from blaming Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for his being left in the dark about the imminent threat from ISIL.

Not that long ago, Obama had labeled the cutthroats a bunch of nobodies who thought that if they donned the uniforms of the L.A. Lakers, it would turn them into the Lakers when, as Obama cockily assured us, they were no more than a junior varsity squad. As it turned out, they proved that they could teach Kobe Bryant and the rest of the Lakers a little something about playing offense. Of course it always helps when the other team – in this case the very Iraqi military that we had spent years and a bloody fortune training and arming – ran off the court while ripping off their uniforms.

The fact that Obama paid absolutely no attention to the facts supplied on a daily basis by U.S. Intelligence was typical of His Arrogance, and it certainly didn’t prevent him from casting Mr. Clapper in the role of every lazy student’s favorite scapegoat, the dog with an insatiable appetite for homework.

Criminalizing Innocent Christian Behavior

Criminalizing Innocent Christian Behavior

Where are all the atheist freedom lovers we always hear about? It’s time for them to start standing up for religious liberty.

The left and militant gay movement are getting bolder and bolder, and too many Christians are stewing in their apathy.

It seems that with each passing month, this senseless tyranny advances. The latest is that two Christian ministers in Idaho, Donald and Evelyn Knapp, have allegedly been ordered to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies at their chapel or face fines or jail sentences.

This nightmare began Oct. 7, when the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals invalidated Idaho’s marriage laws and legalized same-sex marriage in that state, which allowed Idaho county clerks to begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses a week later. On Oct. 17, the Knapps declined a request to perform a same-sex wedding ceremony.

According to a lawsuit filed by the Knapps, the city of Coeur d'Alene is “unconstitutionally coercing” them to perform these weddings at their Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in violation of their religious beliefs, their ordination vows and their consciences. City Ordinance Section 9.56 bars sexual orientation discrimination in public accommodations, which forces the Knapps to choose between betraying their religious convictions and following them and facing up to 180 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. According to their complaint, they arguably commit a separate and distinct misdemeanor each day they refuse to perform such ceremonies, with the potential criminal penalties piling up cumulatively.

Let’s not brush over this as if it’s an immaterial matter to the Knapps or other Christians. Their belief in marriage as between one man and one woman is deeply rooted in their biblical faith – and not just in the Old Testament, as some have speciously argued.

When the Pharisees asked Jesus whether it is lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause, he replied, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” (Matthew 19:4-5). Jesus was quoting Genesis 1:27, lest there be any confusion that there is conflict between the testaments.

The point isn’t whether you or I believe this, though I do. It’s whether the Knapps believe it – and they do. Their attorneys' complaint clearly states that they “are ordained Christian ministers who believe biblical marriage is good for society. Not only have they been happily married for 47 years, they have married roughly 35,000 couples and seen countless lives blessed through marriage. As ordained ministers, the Knapps believe God called them to promote the welfare of their community by uniting others in marriage. … Because their religious beliefs affect everything they do, the Knapps and Hitching Post, LLC only perform wedding ceremonies consistent with their religious beliefs.”

Is that good enough for you? For our society? For the city of Coeur d'Alene? For the state of Idaho? For the United States of America?

In the old cases involving Jehovah’s Witnesses saluting the flag and young men declaring themselves conscientious objectors to the draft, the question was the sincerity of their beliefs. But increasingly in our society, the sacred and not-so-sacred beliefs of everyone but Christians are protected while Christians are deemed intolerant pariahs who must be forced to conform to behavior repugnant to their beliefs.

Notice who the aggressors are here. Notice who is being intolerant. Why can’t same-sex couples who want to marry under the newly minted law find ministers who have no objection to the procedure? Are they seeking the vindication of their rights or trying to force their beliefs on other people to the point of compelling them to deny their own?

Unless we have lost our collective mind and the state of Idaho and federal government have cashiered their respective constitutions, this can’t conceivably be a close case. As the complaint states, the ordinance is unconstitutional as applied to the Knapps, as it violates their right to free speech, their free exercise of religion, their right to equal protection under the law, their due process rights and the applicable Idaho statute, the Free Exercise of Religion Protected Act.

Do you remember when many of us warned that the same-sex marriage movement wasn’t just about living and letting live, that it would inevitably encroach on the religious liberties of Christians and others who don’t agree with this newly created institution? We also warned that this would involve not just societal pressure but the power of state coercion, and we’re already here. The left’s denials that religious liberty was in jeopardy were as trustworthy as President Obama’s assurances that Obamacare would not violate the conscience rights of religious groups – which is to say, not at all.

The sheer acceleration of the left’s militancy should horrify people. Just last week, these actions seemed like a realistic but distant threat, but today they’re already happening.

Many of us keep warning our fellow Christians (and other freedom lovers) that their apathy and refusal to fight for their rights in the public square is going to bite them where it hurts. Could it be that

Predatory Journalism

Predatory Journalism

The New York Times is again on the warpath against what it calls “predatory lending.”

Just what is predatory lending? It is lending that charges a higher interest rate than people like those at the New York Times approve of. According to such thinking – or lack of thinking – the answer is to have the government set an interest rate ceiling at a level that will be acceptable to third parties like the New York Times.

People who believe in government-set price controls – whether on interest rates charged for loans, rents charged for housing or wages paid under minimum wage laws – seem to think that this is the end of the story. Yet there is a vast literature on the economic repercussions of price controls.

Whole books have been written just on the repercussions of rent control laws in countries around the world.

These repercussions include the housing shortages that almost invariably follow, the deterioration of existing housing and the shift of economic resources – both construction materials and construction labor – from building ordinary housing for the general public to building luxury housing that only the affluent and the rich can afford, because that kind of housing is usually exempted from rent control.

There is at least an equally vast literature on the repercussions of minimum wage laws. Unemployment rates over 20 percent for younger, less skilled and less experienced workers have been common, even in normal times – with much higher unemployment rates than that during recessions.

Against this background of negative repercussions from various forms of price control, in countries around the world, why would anybody imagine that price controls on interest rates would not have repercussions that need to be considered?

Yet there is remarkably little concern on the political left as to the actual consequences of the laws and policies they advocate. Once they have taken a stance on the side of the angels against the forces of evil, that is the end of the story, as far as they are concerned.

Low-income people often get short-terms loans when they run out of money to meet some exigency of the moment. The interest rates charged on such unsecured loans to people with low credit scores are usually higher than on loans to people whose higher incomes and better credit histories make them less of a risk.

Crusaders against such loans often make the interest rate charged seem even higher by quoting these interest rates in annual terms, even when the loan is actually repayable in a matter of weeks. It is like saying that a $100 a night hotel room costs $36,500 a year, when virtually nobody rents a hotel room for a year.

Because those who make unsecured short-term loans are usually poor and often ill-educated, the political left can cast the high interest rates as unconscionably taking advantage of vulnerable people. But similar economic principles apply to more upscale short-term lending to well-educated people who have valuable possessions to use as collateral.

A small-time businessman who suddenly finds that he does not have enough cash on hand, or readily available from a bank, to pay his employees this week, knows that if he doesn’t pay them this week he may not have any employees next week – and can face lawsuits the week after that.

There is an upscale lending market available to such people, where he can use his expensive personal possessions as collateral to get the money he needs immediately.

He can borrow more money than the poor can borrow, and at not as high an interest rate. But his interest rate can still be 200 percent if figured on an annual basis – even though he may be able to pay off the loan next month when his customers pay him what they owe him, so he is paying only a small fraction of that hypothetical 200 percent, just as the poor are paying only a small fraction of the hypothetical 300 percent or 400 percent that they are charged.


Editorial demagoguery against “predatory” lending might well be called predatory journalism – taking advantage of other people’s ignorance of economics to score ideological points, and promote still more expansion of government powers that limit the options of poor people especially, who have few options already.

Can you walk out on the messiah?

Does Obama Care About People?


Can you walk out on the messiah?

Appearing at a campaign rally for gubernatorial candidate Anthony Brown in Maryland on Sunday, President Obama sought to capture the magic that had electrified audiences in 2008 and, to some considerable degree, even in 2012. Obama isn’t doing much stumping this year. He limits his campaigning mostly to fundraisers. This is the year, after all, when Democratic candidates are announcing how important it is in our system of government to have honest disagreements with the president. They’re hastening to say that they would be tougher than he is on ISIS. They are declaring that a travel ban from West Africa is only common sense. It’s the year when some have discovered a sacred Constitutional right to keep silent about whom they voted for in 2008 and 2012.

Maryland is an exception. It’s about as safe a Democratic state as you can find, and the president was welcomed. The audience at the rally was largely African-American. And yet, according to Reuters, “a steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke … and a heckler interrupted his remarks.”

Could it be that even loyal Democrats – even those who want to see Obama in the flesh – feel that they’ve heard it all before? Their actions send a clear signal: We think you’re a historical figure worth laying eyes on, but your words no longer interest us.

In 2012, reluctant to encourage a referendum on the first four years of his leadership, Obama successfully turned attention away from his record and toward Mitt Romney and the Republicans. The race became (with the unwitting cooperation of several cloddish Republican candidates) not about the economy or jobs or debt or America’s global retreat, but about saving American women from medieval inquisitors and shielding Hispanics from mass deportation.

Democratic candidates in 2014 are, if anything, even more eager to turn attention away from the president’s performance in the past two years. The economy has not improved. Obamacare’s debut was a debacle. Foreign policy is a shambles, government agencies from the IRS to the Secret Service are loose cannons, and Ebola threatens.

Democrats are attempting to reprise some of the themes that worked in 2012, notably the “War on Women.” But not even that fright mask seems to be working anymore. Sen. Mark Udall’s campaign in Colorado was wall-to-wall gynecology – to the point where he was ridiculed as “Mark Uterus.” The Denver Post was so disgusted that it endorsed his opponent, Rep. Cory Gardner. Like other “war on women” attacks, Udall’s accusations were false. He asserted that Gardner had run an “eight-year crusade to outlaw birth control.” Gardner swatted the lie away with ads touting his support for selling contraceptive pills over the counter (a technique originated by Bobby Jindal).

Democrats are struggling not just because the economy is stagnant and the world is in chaos. They are paying the price for something else. Obama has squandered the greatest asset he had: the perception among Americans that he cared about their problems.

Obama telegraphs indifference to Americans' well-being. When the Benghazi compound was overrun and our ambassador killed, he first dissembled (blaming a video) and then thundered about retribution and justice, but what happened? With the exception of one arrest, Benghazi has been dumped. No one has paid a price for that attack on the U.S.

The president permitted the ISIS menace to metastasize and dismissed the terrorist army as “jayvee,” even as his national security advisers were testifying before Congress that the group was a profound worry. When stories surfaced later that the president attended only 40 percent of his intelligence briefings in person, it fed the impression that Obama doesn’t take the time to evaluate threats to the country. He now blames the intelligence community, but a man who goes golfing after an American is beheaded is signaling a certain coldness.

The response to Ebola underlines all of these tendencies in thick black ink. His instinct has been to tamp down fears rather than address threats with alacrity. He is willing to send U.S. troops to Africa to fight Ebola but not to Iraq to fight ISIS. The administration’s resistance to a travel ban makes no sense if the top priority is the safety of Americans.

In 2012, most people still believed that Obama cared. How many do today?

The Time to Fight Back is NOW

The radical Left's efforts to punish people essentially for being Christians and for morally opposing the Gaystapo agenda

The Time to Fight Back is NOW


 

If you’re like me, you are astounded at the way our nation has taken a turn for the worse within just the past two weeks.  At the flick of a few pens, radical, overreaching judges have overthrown the will of large majorities of the people in half our states and imposed the perversion of gay “marriage” onto these states.  As a consequence, we have seen an acceleration in the radical Left’s efforts to punish people essentially for being Christians and for morally opposing the Gaystapo agenda.  We’ve seen the Obama administration completely fail in its duty to protect the people of this nation from a deadly disease introduced from outside our borders.

Indeed, the failure has been of such magnitude that it has many wondering if it may not be purposefully done so as to allow the imposition of martial law and the formal suspension of the Constitution as a response to an emergency breakout of epidemic proportions (especially given how all signs point to the Pres__ent’s party receiving a massive drubbing in next month’s election).  All across this country, it seems that the Left – fresh from its seemingly successful judicial coups – is running roughshod over our actual constitutional rights.

We should not at all be surprised that the Left is seeking to press its seeming advantage.  Not only because it’s simply good strategy to try to keep your momentum going, but also because the Left is extremely adept at using the power of “social totalitarianism” against its opponents.  By that term, I am referring to how the Left will use its organs in the media and the schools to create the impression (no matter how far it is removed from actual reality) that “history is on our side” and that “everybody is with us, nobody is with you.”  By using the left-wing controlled media to constantly beat the drum for its particular social agenda and to ridicule and marginalize its opponents, the cultural Marxists will enforce silence from those who disagree with them.

In an earlier article, I noted that there is a psychological basis for these efforts.  In the study that was performed, it was found that a large majority of participants would conform to the opinions of the majority when they felt that they were the only one who held a contrary opinion.  Indeed, the participants could be looking at test shapes that were clearly and obviously defined, and would still report that they saw shapes that were obviously wrong, so long as all the other study members (who were working for the professor performing the study) agreed that the wrong shape was in fact the right one.  This study demonstrated how easy it is for many people to just “go with the flow” when an obviously false “truth” is being foisted onto them.http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/is-big-gay-finally-losing-its-grip-on-america

As I said, the Left is very adept at creating this illusion of support for their own positions and agenda.  To do this, the Left relies on a tremendous amount of psychological bullying.  If a public figure steps out of line, he or she will face weeks or months of defamation, lies, innuendo, and negative reporting.  Yet, it is all driven by relatively small circles of left-wing agitators and their organs in the media.  A good recent example of this is the revelation that the supposedly massive social media effort to target Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers and scare them off from his show was largely being perpetrated by a mere ten individuals using multiple Twitter accounts and email addresses.  Thus, you had a small group of left-wingers trying to scare off businesses by making it appear as if there was this huge grassroots reaction against Limbaugh – which in fact did not exist.  The grassroots turned out to be astroturf.http://dailycaller.com/2014/09/23/revealed-conspiracy-to-destroy-rush-limbaugh-is-small-organized-deceptive/

The Left cannot allow dissent against its agenda to remain unpunished, for to do so would be to reveal the paucity of actual support (as shown in the Limbaugh case), and would blow the lid off of their falsehoods.  Successful dissent, as Mollie Hemingway noted a few months ago, is absolutely catastrophic to the leftist agenda. http://thefederalist.com/2014/04/08/the-rise-of-the-same-sex-marriage-dissidents/

As a result—and because the Left is so authoritarian—they cannot help but seek to close off all avenues for dissent.  A couple of years ago, I wrote about this and observed that when this happens, when the Left manages to successfully shut off all peaceful means of dissent from their agenda, they create an atmosphere where the only remaining alternatives tend towards violence.
http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/dunkin/110803

We see the Left pushing us in this direction.  At every turn, the Left is seeking to illegally illegalize dissent from their agenda – and they’ve been kicking it into high gear within the past year.  For months, we have seen how left-wingers all across this country have sought to fine and punish Christian business owners who refuse to support gay “marriage.” 

But, think about everything else we’ve seen:  In Houston, the openly lesbian mayor and the city attorney sent subpoenas to the city’s pastors, demanding that they hand over the content of their sermons to see if they had been speaking on certain verboten topics.  This came on the heels of a wildly-successful petition (receiving five times the number of signatures needed) to withdraw the city’s recent ordinance stipulating that “transgendered” individuals be allowed to use either bathroom in ANY publicly-accessible facility (obvious opposed by the pastors and their churches, as well as by all other reasonable people in general).  However, the petition was summarily (and illegally) thrown out by the city.  In essence, the city was seeking to punish pastors who helped to promote the petition against that ordinance.

Elsewhere, in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, a couple who operates a wedding chapel has been threatened with fines and jail time for refusing to marry gays.  In North Carolina, county and state magistrates have completely had their freedom of conscience taken away at the behest of gay-marriage supporting judges in Raleigh. http://www.redstate.com/2014/10/18/in-idaho-christian-pastors-ordered-to-perform-gay-marriages-you-will-be-made-to-care/

Gay marriage isn’t the only aspect of the leftist agenda that is being forced onto an unwilling population.  “Hate speech” laws and political correctness are used to suppress any dissent on any topic.  The 4th amendment has basically been gutted by liberal judges who allow the police state to do whatever it likes.  The radical environmentalist agenda – deindustrialization because of “global warming,” Agenda 21, the theft of private property because of “wetlands,” and the like – proceeds apace.  We have a government that wants to monitor your social media postings to see if they agree with the government’s positions.  The FBI is so adamant about being able to crack your encrypted data without a warrant that they are openly threatening companies like Apple and Google for creating essentially unbreakable encryptions and making them standard on their products.  Everywhere you look, the Left’s war on liberty advances.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/truthy-project-is-unworthy-of-tax-dollars/2014/10/17/a3274faa-531b-11e4-809b-8cc0a295c773_story.html

http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/10/fbi-director-to-citizens-let-us-spy-on-you/

But the thing to keep in mind is that the Left’s bullying efforts rely upon the acquiescence of its victims.  Like other more garden-variety bullies, the Left is counting on the person being persecuted feeling isolated, hopeless, helpless, and therefore willing to yield to the Left’s assaults.  The last thing a bully expects is that his intended victim will punch his lights out.

Therefore, this is EXACTLY what we need to be doing to the Left.

If you think about it, every time that we have done so, it’s been successful.  Take the case in Houston just recently, the one where the city demanded that pastors turn over their sermons for government inspection.  Instead of acquiescing, the pastors fought back, told the city that they weren’t going to do it, and raised a ruckus.  The city backed down, and the mayor behind it all is currently trying to pretend that she didn’t know anything about it (despite documentation that clearly says otherwise).

Look at the effort by the radical gay lobby to attack Chick-Fil-A a couple of years ago when its president stated his disagreement with gay “marriage” - instead of harming that company, all that ended up happening was that millions of Americans rallied to the defense of Chick-Fil-A’s freedom of speech, and the company ended having by far the single best day of sales on record.  The gays went after Duck Dynasty – but Phil Robertson stood firm and people rallied behind him, and the gays got another big black eye.

Clearly, the time has come for us to fight back against the Gaystapo and other elements of the radical Left’s coalition.  I don’t just mean sporadically, but through a concentrated effort that proactively seeks out incipient left-wing efforts at suppressing liberty, and rallies millions against it within the space of a single day.  In short, conservatives and liberty-lovers need to get organized.  The Left counts on being able to enforce its agenda by making the target – a school board, a business, a private organization, etc. - think it is in the fight alone.  We need to be able to show the target that it is NOT in that fight alone.

Of course this relies upon people becoming involved.  Too often – and this is because it is in our nature not to be agitators and rabble-rousers – conservatives and liberty lovers are content to stand aside, shake our heads, tut-tut about what is going on, but otherwise do nothing.  We complain on internet forums and comments sections, but we don’t DO anything.  Yet, we’ve seen that the few times we DO do something, we can be very effective.  The Left is a paper tiger – all that is needed is to push back, and it will most often fold.

What all of this simply means is that when the Left tries something – threatening the free speech of pastors,  threatening to sue a school board, whatever it may be – we fight back with every resource we have.  And by that, I mean EVERY resource.  It’s time to stop playing nice with the Left.  The Left is in the game to win it, we need to be as well.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Christians started asking gay-owned businesses to do work for us – say, bake a cake for our pro-traditional marriage rally or something like that – and sued them when they refused?  And what if we kept suing them until they were all put out of business?  

What would happen if the city of Houston found itself on the receiving end of hundreds of separate civil rights lawsuits alleging its violation of the 1st amendment rights to free speech and to petition for redress?  What would happen if a thousand vocal patriots showed up at a school board meeting to protest some idiotic move that a couple of left-wing board members were trying to push through?  

What would happen if those patriots stood united and even went so far as to refuse to allow police officers to arrest a couple of the more vocal opponents?  Seriously, folks, it is time that we started to consider robust civil disobedience.  It’s time to consider harassing the Left with a thousand pinpricks every time they attack somebody’s constitutional liberties.  It’s sad to have to contemplate this, but the Left has brought us to this point- there’s really no going back. 

So what would happen when the ACLU finds out that they’re not the only ones who can file a lawsuit?  What if the Communists and Black Panthers in Ferguson, Missouri were to discover that they aren’t the only ones who can rustle up a large crowd of engaged activists?

And this may sound scary to some folks, but the time has also come to begin considering armed resistance to the Left when it uses the police powers of the state to deny liberty to the people.

Armed resistance does not necessarily imply actual shooting, or civil war, or anything like that.  Look at the example of the patriots who came to the Cliven Bundy ranch earlier this year.  Not a shot was fired – but the BLM and the other alphabet agencies stood down, ultimately, because there were more of us than there were of them.  And police agencies, like other elements of the left-wing coalition, count on disunity and isolation to allow them to take away liberty.  What would happen if a city arrested a pastor for preaching against homosexuality, only to have a couple of thousand armed patriots surround the jail politely requesting the pastor’s release?  It’s time to stop assuming that that sort of activity would be wrong, or that talking about it is “out of bounds.”  When you are defending constitutional liberty, any police agency or other element of government that is violating that document is in the wrong, THEY are the ones who are illegitimate and without standing for their activities.

Even further, what do you do when the government finally crosses the line and starts trying to round people up or otherwise go full-out totalitarian, as may well be a distinct possibility, given the direction in which this administration is headed?

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward. - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Solzhenitsyn explains why it was so easy for the Bolsheviks under Stalin to establish their reign of terror and round up millions into the gulags.

Let it be a lesson for us, so that it is not repeated here. We have millions of guns in this nation. If or when the Obama administration reaches a point where it begins trying to confiscate guns, sets up roadblocks and other travel restrictions because of its engineered “Ebola outbreak,” or begins arresting dissidents who speak out against government policies - it will be time for us to do what the Russians in the 1930s did not do, which is to fight back. There aren’t enough police, not even enough military, to be able to do the job if we were serious about defending our freedoms.

Think about it. Let’s say that the police start setting up roadblocks all over America, demanding to “see your papers” and arresting anyone who is on their list of subversives, or who questions them for violating the Constitution, or whatever else. Now, what happens if patriots armed with hunting rifles and AR-15s start sniping those roadblocks from the woods or from buildings a couple of hundred meters away? And say that this happens all over the country, all at the same time. There are not enough police at all levels to even begin to deal with that. And when you factor in that a good chunk of the military will take its oath to the Constitution seriously and will side with us over the administration…well…I just don’t see how the Regime can hold out.

BUT.

It takes patriotic American citizens willing to stand up for their rights to do it. If we sit in our houses waiting for the Feds to show up to confiscate our guns, one house at a time, well, we’ll deserve the fate that the Russians in Solzhenitsyn’s day got.

Let’s face it, folks – the day may well come where this sort of thing happens.

But it doesn’t have to.  If we stop the Left NOW, then we can keep it from proceeding to actual violence and civil disorder.  What if millions of conservatives and liberty-lovers were “on call” at a moment’s notice to stand up for any one of us who was being attacked by the Left?  What if the good people of this nation stood together against the evil ones in our society?  Instead of sitting idly by, what if we were willing to use some time and money to take the fight to the Left?  Lawfare, civil disobedience, psychological weight of numbers – these are our tools, if we will only use them.

CREATE! BALTIMORE, HOMELESS, HOUSING, PUBLIC HOUSING 

Housing the homeless of Baltimore in the city’s vacant rowhouses is being floated again by local affordable housing activists whose idea forms the core of an article in the current Atlantic.

Their idea is “to create a community land trust – a non-profit that will hold the title to the land in order to make it permanently affordable.” according to today’s piece by Alana Semuels.
http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2014/10/can-homeless-people-move-into-baltimores-abandoned-houses/381647/

“Structures on the land can be bought and sold, but the trust owns the land forever,” she writes about the proposal by Housing Is A Human Right Round-table, a coalition of labor activists and homeless people affiliated with the United Workers.http://unitedworkers.org/2014/08/05/watch-new-united-workers-media-team-video-on-our-fight-to-make-housing-a-human-right/

“A community land trust essentially takes the ‘market’ part out of the housing market, allowing people to buy homes but restricting their resale value in order to make them affordable for the next buyer.”

It’s worked in other cities Semuels says, citing this article in The Architectural League’s “Urban Omnibus” blog.http://urbanomnibus.net/2014/04/the-value-of-land-how-community-land-trusts-maintain-housing-affordability/

The Brew floated the same idea last year and got some interesting comments and debate. I’m pasting in a sample below. Maybe these folks have some opinions on the land bank idea.

Barbara A. Samuels, managing attorney for the Fair Housing Project of the ACLU of Maryland:

Everyone always suggests this, but it has already been tried in Baltimore over the period 1970-1994 and was a failure. The City sold vacant houses to the housing authority to rehab as public housing. About 2,900 houses were rehabbed and rented as public housing. The vast majority were in the poorest and still declining neighborhoods where there was no other demand for the properties – by definition that is where long term abandoned houses are located.

By 1998, many were vacant and boarded again and HABC was starting to demolish them. At this point, only about 900 (out of 2900) are still in use and those neighborhoods have emptied out. What a waste! Had the money been used instead to create affordable housing in stable neighborhoods with functioning housing markets, those units would still be providing affordable housing today, and we might not have as much homelessness.

Carol Ott, Housing Policy Watch:

People usually associate “the homeless” with people who are somehow unable to take care of themselves, at even the most basic level. This serves a dual purpose: One, to assert the government’s authority over these people, and two, to separate in our minds “them” from “us” – as in “that could never happen to me, I’m not crazy, a drug addict, an alcoholic, etc.”

The reality, however, is that many homeless people were and are “us.” They have jobs, they have kids – the only difference is they no longer have a place to call home, outside of their car, a shelter, or campsite. Many of us, if we were honest, could easily fall into the same trap – how many people do we know in our social and professional circles, who are just a paycheck or two away from being “them”?

These homeless people are ideal candidates for the first of a multi-tiered plan of using the vacants to house the homeless. They’re working, they have an income, they’re paying taxes, and they need little in the way of social services. They’re also potential candidates for homeownership, if the program were structured in a way that favored low-income residents over the developers and the city.

Other homeless people, those requiring more services and care (and therefore more ongoing support) could be housed in group situations that would allow them a modicum of self-sufficiency, but also the supportive care they need.

While our city gives away millions in potential tax revenue to developers, for the purpose of building “luxury” condos and apartments, we, as voters and residents, need to demand that our elected officials use our tax dollars wisely. Keep in mind, it’s far cheaper (and therefore less of our tax money) to prevent homelessness than to clean up after someone’s fallen into the system of poverty.
