Why Liberty Requires Christianity

Just read an excellent article on The Imaginative Conservative website.

Here is an excerpt:
"One of the truths of Christendom which lays the very foundations of freedom is the Christian insistence on the mystical equality of all people in the eyes of God and the insistence on the dignity of the human person that follows logically, inexorably and inescapably from such an insistence. If everyone is equal in the eyes of God, it doesn’t matter if people are black or white, healthy or sick, able-bodied or handicapped, or whether babies are inside the womb or out of it. It doesn’t matter that people are different, in terms of race, age or innate abilities; they are all equal in the eyes of God, and therefore, of necessity, in the eyes of Man also. This is the priceless inheritance of Christendom with which our freedoms are established and maintained. If everyone is equal in the eyes of God and Man, everyone must also be equal in the eyes of the law. "

Common Core Conflict of Interest

From
Senator Luther Olsen has yet to schedule hearings on Common Core that were required by language in the biennial budget. Senator Olsen's wife, Joan Wade, has served for over ten years as administrator of CESA 6, which is tasked with implementing Common Core in Wisconsin. This represents a clear conflict of interest for Senator Olsen who should be removed from his positions on Education and Joint Legislative committees who will oversee Common Core matters.

Please CALL Senator Fitzgerald asking him to reassign Senator Olsen! Below is the number and a general message... Personalize it as you like.. Call Senator Scott Fitzgerald - (608) 266-5660

Whether or not our children's education will be dictated by consortia, trade groups like the NGA, and corporate interests via Common Core State Standards is in the hands of Sen. Luther Olsen. His wife is instrumental in rolling out Common Core in Wisconsin and he clearly has a conflict of interest which may be why he's delaying scheduling any hearings on Common Core as required in the biennial budget. Please have Senator Fitzgerald reassign Senator Olsen off of Joint Legislative Committee and Education Committee to resolve this conflict of interest. At very least, have Senator Fitzgerald encourage Senator Olsen to Schedule those hearings and take public input on Common Core!"
 
 
I can certainly see why he wouldn't schedule hearings - after all parents have no vested interest in seeing their children educated properly - it's not like that is the responsibility of parents after all...oh wait YES IT IS - yes it absolutely IS the duty and responsibility of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children. That is why the feds are specifically prohibited, by law, from creating curriculum.
SO what do they do? Set standards that are met by the curriculum they wish to impose on our children and then hold our own tax money over our heads as a way to cheat the law.
I recommend homeschooling.

Ron Ewart -- The Only Effective Weapon - Massive Disobedience

"The sad truth is, most people are cowards. They would rather knuckle under than risk a confrontation with government even though a confrontation with government is what it will take to preserve their freedom. The government uses this cowardice against the people. They keep "pushing" the people with law after law to see how much they will take. A death by a thousand cuts. They use and exploit the people's unwillingness to challenge authority ..... out of fear of government. And we call ourselves Americans, as if that is supposed to mean something? Maybe once it did.
Being an American used to mean being self-reliant, independent, a free thinker, courageous and individually responsible. Unfortunately, the irrational fear of government that we see in the eyes of Americans today, is hardly what we consider being an American. Acting as our own attorney, we have challenged a multi-national corporation in court and won. We have challenged the IRS twice and won. We are challenging them a third time and we expect to win. We have challenged a local court over a small infraction and we expect to win there too ..... because we do not fear government. We use the law against them, even though we are fully aware that at any time of their choosing, they have the power to unilaterally "bury" us."

Exclusive: U.S. directs agents to cover up program used to investigate Americans - From the Chicago Tribune

"A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges."

Where are the people with a sense of ethics in our federal agencies? Does the federal hiring process deliberately screen out those who understand the US Constitution? Have these people no shame? Have they no understanding of how absolutely anti-American this is? I, as many others have been giving our government the benefit of the doubt- allowing that there are good people employed by our government who do not know what is going on. Way to make fools of us all. This is apparently a long standing and accepted practice.

Fire them all. Every single one.

Is there any question that this is treason?
US Constitution Article 3;Section 3
"Section. 3.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted."

Conservative when convenient... Intellectual Froglegs S2E7


A Looming Threat

Yes, the news is all about how there is a major terrorist threat afoot. And from Al Queada no less - even though Mr. obama has said they are on the run so the "war on terror" is over don't cha know. No details to be had because, I guess, having an informed populace on the lookout is somehow worse in the eyes of a government that has left it's foundations than people left in ignorance and unable to assist ourselves in providing for our own.

No details are forthcoming about this huge, looming threat, but we must close our embassies in Islamic nations anyway.

My question is why?

We have the best military in the world - or so I've always been told. (And at least until the feds decided to use them for social experimentation rather than keeping to the ethical uses of an all volunteer military.) We have the IRS and the NSA spying on every bit of electronic communication out there - regardless of the legality and ethics of doing so. We are providing millions, if not billions of dollars of aid and comfort to our enemies in those same Islamic nations and yet, here we are closing our embassies in response to a terrorist threat.

Given our serious advantages over our enemies, I have a real problem with this. It is not our place to cower before such a threat, but rather to make sure those embassies are backed up militarily and diplomatically to such an extent that no terrorist group would dare to graffiti the walls of our sovereign soil, much less harm another ambassador.

I've seen a lot of theories flying around - everything from "this is it they plan to bring down the grid and blame it on terrorists" to "this is obama celebrating his birthday and the day of strength in ramadan simultaneously". My own conspiracy theory would be more along the lines of the idea that there is someone in those nations who is or  who will shortly be looking for asylum. Someone who our own government wants to find closed doors at those embassies - if I were inclined to conspiracy theories that is.

Personally, I think the simplest explanation is often the truest and, on the face of it, the simplest explanation is this: Mr. obama is seeing that Americans don't like to see their ambassadors and other embassy personnel killed, but he thinks they probably won't mind the destruction of our embassies so much. Besides, he has no military experience and no idea what our military is capable of doing to defend OUR SOVEREIGN SOIL, so he'll make sure no people are hurt when these attacks occur as they must to appease the pride of the terrorists of these nations. (There's that worldly wisdom he campaigned on. And besides, having been raised by a muslim stepfather in a muslim nation who still knows the call to prayer by heart and thinks of it as the prettiest sound on earth, he should know all about how appeasement is viewed by terrorists of this ilk - shouldn't he? In which case the question becomes "why is he appeasing them?")

A real president(as opposed to the usurper currently occupying that office with the complicity of the legislative and judicial branches), in my opinion, would be doing something more like this:

Issue a Public statement on all networks saying that:
  1. All embassies under threat will be immediately fortified.
  2. All embassies will have a defensive force of our own military at their beck and call until said threats have been found and dealt with appropriately. The security forces provided by those governments to our embassies are dismissed until further notice.
  3. All foreign aid going to these nations will be halted immediately and a percentage of that aid money re-allocated to rewards for the capture of those making such threats and or carrying out such threats.
  4. All students from those nations or foreign nationals  from those nation currently in America will be immediately deported to their nations of origin until the threat is deemed passed at the expense of their own governments.
Those seem like a far more reasonable set of actions to take than closing our embassies and hiding like scared little girls from the threat of violence. There is a lot to be said for tolerance and diplomacy, but not where it gives the appearance of weakness and where a demonstration of strength would be more effective.

"But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel."~ 1 Tim 5:8

"Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness." ~ Psalm 52:7

Teamsters Ordered to Stop Picketing Funeral Homes

Words fail me so I'll share those of the Washington Free Beacon

"The company testified in its filing that union members blocked grieving family members from leaving its parking lot, used bullhorns to shout obscenities at workers and mourners, and unleashed a German Shepard on a dead woman’s daughter and husband.
The funeral home was eventually forced to call the police when picketers allegedly disrupted a child’s funeral with laughter. The officer asked the Teamsters to leave, but protesters returned when he drove away."
