It's the Culture, Stupid

Fourth of July weekend toll: 82 shot, 14 of them fatally, in Chicago
You can ban guns, knives, bombs, sticks and stones; if you don't change the heart of the people you won't end the violence. Government can't do that, but it can stop banning God from our public life. That it can do.

Can't Beat'em? Ban'em

Costco removing D'Souza's 'America' from shelves

How tolerant.

How Communists Solve Problems

"To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people." -- Zbigniew Brzezinski
Remember that as you watch our government try - and fail - to exert control in every area of our lives, listen to the contempt they have for the citizens who don't fall lock-step in agreement with everything they do. Something will have to be done with the rebels, the "domestic terrorists," as Harry Reid has called us. The reality is this country is not headed to a happy place.

Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light...

Night Falls on Civilization
The World's Fair to Earth Hour marks the journey of a civilization across the sky from light into darkness. In our new post-civilizational time, we no longer celebrate human accomplishment by seeing a vision of the future, instead we turn off the bright lights of civilization and sit in the dark for an hour to atone for our electrical sins."
Read this article and ask yourself "what spirit is behind this?" What spirit wants mankind dead, what spirit hates man and wants him subjugated and defeated? Is this the spirit you will follow?

Well, you can count me out. I can't believe how easily people follow wrong spirits. And I count myself among them, been there, done that, got the t-shirt. We all have. But every time I perceive I've been fooled, I want out. I've seen so many people confronted with truth and they double down on the lies.

When I was very young I would read the Bible and wonder how it could possibly be that the whole world is deceived. Everyone? Now I realize, now I see it. And I know I don't see the half of it. That's the scary part.

It's one thing for people to do things that effect themselves but it's infuriating watching people make decisions that negatively effect your life and the lives of your loved ones to no good end.
Because it makes them feel good about themselves. And accomplishes absolutely nothing. No, not nothing, it makes things worse, worse for everyone. They follow the spirit of destruction and think they are building society. Such a joke, but it's not funny at all.

The good news is that they lose in the end. They lose. Thank God for that.

What Do Their Wives Think?

Lawmakers debate Hawaii law allowing cops to ‘sexually penetrate’ prostitutes before making arrest
The Honolulu Police Department claims the exemption helps their officers make arrests, and that without it prostitutes will engage in "cop checking," or requiring that sex takes place before being paid. But the Pacific Alliance to Stop Slavery argues that police officers from every other U.S. state manage to arrest prostitutes without “sexual penetration.”
So, by their standard, it should be OK for undercover officers to kill people to prove they are not cops to those they are investigating. I mean, that's the ultimate "cop checking," isn't it?

Meanwhile, in Socialist Paradise...

Venezuelan Crackdown Continues: Three Generals Arrested, Congresswoman Expelled
As President Nicolás Maduro continues to silence those in the government who disagree with his oppressive socialist regime, the Venezuelan opposition's most prominent leader not behind bars has been expelled from Parliament, and three generals have been arrested for dissent.

Who Needs Climate Change?

Leaked draft of UN IPCC report predicts global warming will cause violent conflict, displace millions of people and wipe trillions of dollars off the global economy

Long before climate change causes us any problems, Progressives will have accomplished all of that and more. If people don't smarten up. Fast.

Double Standard?

Russia Today Anchor Quits On Air
Liz Wahl, in the network's D.C. bureau, announced she could no longer be "part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin. I'm proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I am resigning."
That's all very good but what about all the networks that whitewash the actions of Obama? That's OK? Will you work for one of them?

Because Whether or Not You're Killing a Child is Irrelevant

Planned Parenthood President: When Life Begins Not ‘Really Relevant’ in Abortion Debate
"It is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation," Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos on Thursday. "I don’t know if it's really relevant to the conversation."
It's the most important part of the conversation for non-psychopath‎s.

They Said If We Got Rid of Guns We'd Be Safe...

China blames separatists for knife attack; 33 dead
More than 10 assailants slashed scores of people with knives at a train station in southern China, drawing police fire, in what authorities called a terrorist assault by ethnic separatists based in the far west, state media said Sunday. Thirty-three people were killed and 130 wounded.
Too bad the victims didn't have guns to protect themselves. :(

Get the Popcorn

Gay activists have met their match with Muslim barbers
In five years time, it won’t be gay activists forcing themselves into Christian B&Bs. It’ll be Muslim activists vetoing the gay pride parade.
And Canadians get to pay for it all.

Cold Comfort for Change

Migrant windsurfs to U.S. from Cuba
A Cuban migrant windsurfed from Cuba to Key West Tuesday, but two other windsurfers he was with were apparently lost in the Gulf Stream about 60 miles south of the Florida Keys, according to Key West police and the Coast Guard.
They are still dying to get here, and terribly disappointed in us if they make it. They risk their lives for freedom, we give our freedom away to shysters and crooks for a little cold comfort.

They Always Know Better Than Everyone Else

The 'Fairness' Fraud
"Those who preach this counterproductive message will probably never think that the envy, resentment and hopelessness they preach, and the welfare state they promote, are among the factors keeping people down."

Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.. --Matthew 7:5

You Can't Build That

Life here on Earth is hard, it's been hard since we were kicked out of the garden of Eden and no man or nation of men will ever change that. The way to Eden is cut off, the only way back is through "The stone which the builders discarded."
"Be it Marx or Engels, Hitler or Stalin, the collectivist rock stars share a common thread: Big government totalitarianism. It may be a long, painful process – and millions may have to die – but, as history has shown, eventually "progressive" collectivism leads to violent revolt among those who long to be free."
Matt Barber

And Still Counting...

"Communism, which killed 100 million people in its course – in peacetime, not in war but in peacetime – and bankrupted whole continents, created unimaginable poverty for a billion people, artificial mass starvation where millions upon millions of people died because of government schemes that didn't work, showed that this Socialist idea is a bankrupt idea; there's nothing there." --David Horowitz
So sad.

Divided, We Fall

One Election Away from Losing Our Freedom
A democratic political system in which a leading political faction is totalitarian cannot endure.
Take a few minutes and read this. The totalitarian party will not go away on its own.

10 Quotes from Melanie Phillips

10 quotes that shred progressivism from a best-selling British author who left the Left

Here's #1:
"I always believed in the duty of a journalist to uphold truth over lies, follow the evidence where it led and fight abuses of power wherever they were to be found. I gradually realised, however, that the left was not on the side of truth, reason, and justice, but instead promoted ideology, malice, and oppression. Rather than fighting the abuse of power, it embodied it.

Through demonising its enemies in this way, the left has undermined the possibility of finding common ground and all but destroyed rational discourse. This is because, as shown by its reaction to Lady Thatcher’s death, it substitutes insult and abuse for argument and reasoned disagreement."

Climate Nazis

Climate scientist will say ‘global warming Nazis’ until they drop ‘denier’ label
"Like the Nazis, they advocate the supreme authority of the state (fascism), which in turn supports their scientific research to support their cause (in the 1930s, it was superiority of the white race)," Spencer wrote.

"Dissenting scientific views are now jack-booted through tactics like pressuring scientific journals to not publish papers with which they disagree…even getting journal editors to resign," Spencer continued. "Like the Nazis, they are anti-capitalist. They are willing to sacrifice millions of lives of poor people at the altar of radical environmentalism, advocating expensive energy policies that increase poverty. And if there is a historically demonstrable threat to humanity, it is poverty."
Disturbingly, I think the 1930's are echoing through our present day.

Sound Familiar?

In the German elections of 1932, the Nazi party received 37 percent of the vote. They became part of a democratically elected coalition government, in which Hitler became chancellor. Only step by step did the Nazis dismantle democratic freedoms and turn the country into a complete dictatorship.

The political majority could have united to stop Hitler from becoming a dictator. But they did not unite. They fought each other over their differences. Some figured that they would take over after the Nazis were discredited and defeated.

Many who plotted this clever strategy died in Nazi concentration camps. Unfortunately, so did millions of others.

It does to me.

Recommended Sermon

"There is something in man that yearns for government, yet government is the source of the loss of most of man's freedom."
He touches on government and how government effects man's freedom. Also compares King Saul with King David - why one was rejected and the other forgiven.

Evil mind, evil sword.

Honest Mistake?

Here's a good one. A guy pushes to get the SAFE Act passed, making carrying a gun on school property a felony (among other things).
"He was a well-known face in the movement for the SAFE Act, the state law that made carrying a gun on school property a felony."
The he carries a gun on school property.
"No one imagined that on Thursday he would show up at the school in possession of a gun, touching off an hours-long lockdown, search and ultimately his arrest on two felony charges."
Now they're defending him saying he didn't mean any harm. What about all the children who were punished for stupid things like finger guns or pop tart guns or t-shirts? The SAFE Act is bad law and never should have been passed, but I have no sympathy for this man at all. Karma is a bitch.

Associates defend man who had gun in school

On a side note, he has a permit to carry a gun - presumably concealed? Does New York permit open carry? - Unless it was open carry, how did anyone know he had the gun?

Defender of (Muslim) Religious Freedom

Beyond that? Nope.

Obama:‘Promoting religious freedom is a key objective of US policy'
President Barack Obama declared himself a defender of religious faith Thursday, and gently chided various governments and religions for limiting religious freedom.
Is there any living person so completely full of crap who is not considered bats#%$ crazy by everyone?

Communism as False Prophet

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. --1 John 4:1
Heard this quoted today while perusing the newest exploits of America's "progressive" movement. This is the spirit John is speaking of a few verses on when he mentions the anti-Christ, I'm convinced more and more of this as I see the Progressives in action.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

Life Under Communism

Here's a very interesting article. Reminds me of what we used to hear life was like in the USSR. Some things never change.
