Standing Down

 I am so deeply grieved by this villainous administration's treatment of American citizens at Benghazi that I find all the election nonsense to be too much for me. 

I keep thinking of the ramifications spreading ever outward from that epicenter and I am am overwhelmed by the perfidy, the treason and the out and out murderousness of these people. 

The harm this has done and continues to do to our military concerns me greatly. Our fellow citizens did not sign up to be ordered to sit on their hands when their fellow citizens are being killed. The harm it will do to those who may vote for him unawares, thanks to what appears to be a msm blackout. (Although they certainly had fair warning of his character from his votes on the born alive bills didn't they?)The rifts in families and communities between those who have an ounce of simple human decency and those who are so morally bankrupt that they will ascribe this all to politics and never you mind that someone died. Appalling.

How will I be able to sit at the same table over the holidays as people who voted for this festering sore on the face of America? I can't think of it. It pains me, and yet I must think of it if only to bear witness. 

My nation is a nation that values individual rights BECAUSE we recognize the intrinsic value of every life and this whited sepulcher has just demonstrated to the entire world that he cares no more for a single American life than what he thinks it can bring him politically and his minions scramble to do the same. 

I am devastated that the entire nation has not risen to demand his removal, as have I and as I will continue to do until he is gone...or until I am. 
And if it does that to me, what must it be doing to our military? Particularly those who were in a position to help but who were told to stand down for HOURS? 

For those who still have the good sense to be Christians, pray as you may never have prayed before because we are going into a darkness such as this nation, nor this world has ever seen and there are very few candles. 

May our military forgive us;

  • for failing in our duty to keep this current "government" within it's Constitutional limits;
  • for failing to elect people of good character to those positions of authority over them;
  • for failing to see that their right to vote is respected;
  • for failing to hold those same people accountable for the smallest of breaches of that venerable document and;
  • for putting them in a place where they may neither defend themselves nor their fellow citizens, nor speak about it to anyone until they are retired. 
And that said, may the Lord forgive us as well for losing this nation, this gift of freedom, and, most of all for rejecting Him. This is the first election where neither of the two front running candidates are Christians, although both claim to be. How could we have lost our discernment in the short 230 + years since this nation's founding? 

" Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent bloodBut the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off."~ Psalm 94:20-23

Impeach Now

This is treason. And this.

This is not about politics. This is about treason and EVERY American needs to know this and do their duty by calling their representative and demanding the immediate (meaning now, not after the election)beginning of impeachment proceedings. This is our duty as citizens and has no party.

In addition, in the American philosophy every life is intrinsically valuable. For this man(or anyone) to watch our consulate being attacked via drone, possibly watching our ambassador and 3 other Americans being sodomized and murdered, without calling for ANY support for those Americans, and quite possibly forbidding our military to go to their aid during the 7 HOUR attack, and then go to sleep and lie about the attack later is beyond the boundaries of what is sufferable from even the worst of government officials.

Call your Rep because the House has the responsibility to impeach. Call them now. May God forgive us if we decline to do this thing.
"No man is an island,

Entire of itself.

Each is a piece of the continent,

A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee."
 ~ John Donne

An Order of Magnitude

That is the phrase used when one wishes to describe a large or significant difference between two things. 
Such as the difference between the current administration's actions regarding the economy and their response to the deliberate attack on our consulate in Libya and the murder of our ambassador and 3 other citizens.

The reason this is appropriate, to say that there is an order of magnitude's difference in those actions, is because the difference is one of such vast import to the American people, that to classify it otherwise would be unthinkable.

An administration may make economic policies that affect thousands, or hundreds of thousands of Americans negatively. In general, we recognize that such things are a matter of suffering through a temporary difference of economic ideologies.  We expect that reality will cause such policies to self correct over time. It is not seen as an indication that those who have been granted authority over those policies despise us or account the individual as being of little intrinsic worth. 

The response of this administration to the deliberate act of war against us and the murder of our citizens is not a matter of differing ideologies that will self correct. This is a matter of declaring to the world  how we, here in America view the value of an individual life. Yes, there are national security and foreign policy concerns attached to this, but the primary purpose our response needs to address is: How do we, as a nation, regard the value of a single human life? In other times, the answer to that question was inseparable from the given response. Devastatingly, that response has changed under this administration. And that is what makes me sick in my very soul.

In my experience of life, America, as a nation has regarded human life in the same way as does the God of the Bible. That is to say; that every human being is intrinsically valuable. The SCOTUS' inappropriate meddling in Roe vs Wade (not to mention their inappropriate ruling-a matter of cowardice) dealt that understanding a severe blow, but it was not a death blow. It was more along the lines of a difficult question regarding the balance between an individual's right to privacy and control of one's own bodily processes and another individual's right to life. (I think that life overrules the other, but clearly, the SCOTUS did not share that opinion.)

This administration's response, to apologize for the exercise of free speech and lament the violence that "wasted the lives of state officials"("or alternatively, because this is a translation of an egyptian source: "wasted lives of agents of the state.") rather than to declare war [until LIBYA surrenders or provides a reason strong enough to prevent us from turning that nation into a glass parking lot (Terrorists did it and we couldn't control them-not believable at this point in the game, but plausible for quelling a declaration of war until the perpetrators were surrendered for judgement)], was a statement to the world and Americans that this administration regards the individual as being of little intrinsic value. The first time I mentioned this statement, I was willing to allow that it might be merely an unfortunate translation. Given the continuing actions of this administration, I no longer think so. 

That is the sickness that gnaws at my soul every time I hear from the government now.

  •  A government consisting of: a sitting POTUS and administration that made that heinous statement to the world(in addition to their surrender of America to the islamic world) ;
  •  A Congress that does not see fit to impeach the sitting POTUS who would make such a statement (and who also treasonously surrendered and who has committed numerous acts of overt treason against this nation);
  • A SCOTUS who will not hear from citizens on legitimate questions of that same POTUS' eligibility to serve, saying that We the People, as individuals, have no standing to see the rule of law upheld.
This cause of that "soul sickness" in ordinary American citizens like myself is what must be addressed before this nation can reclaim it's freedom. 
This is what defines mr. obama as unfit to run a turnip patch, much less America. This is a disregard of common human decency so vast as to boggle the mind. This should have been sufficient for impeachment, but it was not.

Until it is, and until the intrinsic value of every individual is once again recognized in America, the blood of  Ambassador Stevens, Mr. Smith, Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods will cry out from the ground against an America that allowed freedom to die with them. 

"Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table should be full of fatness.
 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee.
 Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee." ~ Job 36:16-18

New Life for the 2nd Amendment

If you missed (or never listen to) the BTR show of the same name as this blog, then you should give the widget on the sidebar a click and have a listen. It's only 30 minutes. Wednesday's guest was Cody Wilson, founder of Defense Distributed, also known as the Wiki Weapon project.

When I first heard about this, I was wallowing in in a slough of despond over the murder of our ambassador and the treasonous "response" of this administration and the treasonous and complicit lack of impeachment proceedings from Congress. I, personally, now regard the contract between the federal government and We the People (AKA the US Constitution), to be broken. Irrevocably and egregiously broken. I declare that I, will respect the rule of law-including that venerable document-but that I will no longer regard anything coming from the so-called federal government to be binding upon me as they have broken the contract. (Yes, wallowing, I say.)

 This project, the very idea of it opened a window into the possibilities for maintaining our freedom in the future. Freedom from an egregiously out of bounds and out of control government in the form of technology moving so fast they will be simply unable to keep up, and that, my fellow Americans is a very good thing. A very scary thing also as there are always those among us who will turn such things to evil, but that's a different problem and one that cannot be solved by legislation.

In any case do give the interview a listen and then go to  and check it out. Exercise your freedoms daily.
