COMMENTS of 2014

I'm just thinking about how this country is being run.  If you would like to email me feel free to do so. Want to make a comment on any of these topics Go to Our Forum.


I was told as a kid that when someone was talking bad about you and began making things up about you they were really afraid of you.

So when the Liberal Progressives keep talking and making things up about the TEA Party folks, what they are really saying is that they are afraid of us. The reason they are afraid of us is because we stand for the truth and they can't stand it.

Let's keep dishing out the truth so that they will show their true colors; RED.

This is a song that I really like.
KEEP THE CHANGE
 



















My fellow Patriots remember this, without faith there is no hope, without hope there is no freedom and with out freedom this Great Country of ours will not exist. Don't give up, keep fighting to keep this great country of ours.

If you learn the truth about the past and you teach the truth of the past, hopefully the bad will not be repeated in the future.

True Patriots stand for freedom in any type of weather.

Without a since of morality this country can not survive.

I'm against violence but step on, spit on, burn or disrespect the flag or the Constitution of these United States you are doing the same to me and I will not tolerate it and violence you shall have.

We have to tell the parents and grandparents to educate the children about what America is about. Because the school systems are failing to teach them the real and true history. We ourselves must learn more about our heritage. If you learn the truth about the past and you teach the truth of the past, hopefully the bad will not be repeated in the future. You also just have to teach 5 people and in turn tell each of the 5 to teach 5. 

 

I'm always on the right side and the right side is the side of Jesus Christ and the U. S. Constitution.


We The People need to get this new congress to do something more than just be lawmakers. They need to be Patriots and lead because we shouldn't have to follow any ones lead. We have people with the best ideas; if we are unbound and not having to worry about all the PC crap we can be the best again. Let's keep the new congress's feet to the fire.

 

WE THE PEOPLE must respect the office of the President but we do not have to respect the person holding that office.

By avoiding conflict you are denying yourself freedom.

 

America Is Like Israel

 5/26/2016

Is America like Israel? I think it is and I will try to explain.   

  1. The people of Israel left a country of slavery.
  2. The people of America left countries that taxed people so much it enslaved them.
  3. Israelites are very proud and God fearing people.
  4. The American Founders were GOD fearing people.

 When the people of Israel left Egypt they left a country that had many gods. They left a country that told them what to do, how to worship and made them slaves. As they were enslaved they never lost their faith in GOD. They kept praying that there would be a day that they could become free.

 That day finally came when a man of Hebrew decent was forced to leave and wound up in the land of Median. This is where GOD spoke to Moses and told him what was going on in Egypt. GOD told Moses to go and bring the people of Israel out of Egypt. (Exodus 3:10)

 When they finally get out of Egypt they praised GOD for giving them freedom. Then after awhile the People of Israel forgot Who brought them out of Egypt and freed them. It wasn’t Moses (even though he had something to do with it) it was GOD.

 Now let’s fast forward to America. Before there was the United States of America there were people in England that was GOD Fearing. They were enslaved by a tyrant king. They were being taxed so much that they were forced to work it off by working for the king. Then they started revolting so much that England sent them to a new land. It was to be a penal colony and they were to work the land and settle it for England. At the time the people didn’t realize that GOD sent them to this land to be free. It was a land of “Milk and Honey”. This was America’s Exodus.

 When they finally got their freedom they rejoiced and praised GOD. But like the Israelites we have forgotten who set us free. It wasn’t our founding Fathers (although they too, like Moses, had something to do with it) it was GOD.

 Moses was given the Laws of GOD for the Israelites to follow. The Founding Fathers of America drew up Laws based on GOD’s Laws this is known as the United States Constitution. This is the Younger Brother following the example of the Older Brother.

 Israel is the older brother and America is the younger brother. So being the older brother, Israel is protecting their freedom from suppressionist. Now America, being the younger brother, is just now going through suppression. America has leaders that want power and profiteering. Israel went through that when they followed men that were greedy.  Even though the leaders of America said that they were GOD fearing, they were doing the work of man not GOD. Like the Pharisees of Israel they were being greedy and doing the work of man, not GOD.

 Remember, GOD gave us America to take care of and to be free people. GOD gave the land of Israel to His people to protect His name and to have a home to come back to. America was settled on the bases of Judao-Christian beliefs. Israel was settled on the belief of GOD, a GOD that is the Father of Heaven and of all things.

 As the Younger Brother of Israel we must stand beside Israel. Not behind, not in front BUT beside Israel. America can not survive if Israel dies. We as America must bring GOD back into our lives. If we don’t then America dies. GOD gives us a choice, follow Him and become rich and powerful or follow man and become broke and worthless. America must bring GOD back to our Nation. We must get our Moral Compass pointing in the right direction. Until then, America is walking in the desert as the Israelites did before getting to their destination.

 So you see, America is like Israel. GOD Blessed America once now it’s time for America to Bless GOD, Again.

 

Transgender Overreach

5/20/3016

Christians and non-Christians alike seem finally to be waking up in response to the Obama administration's shocking overreach into America's families via a letter jointly sent by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Education (DOE). The letter's "guidance" threatens that as a condition for receiving federal funds, every public school must comply with the Obama administration's outrageous reinterpretation of Title IX which literally prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (originally intended to prevent discrimination against women). By executive fiat, that law is being "expanded," demanding that schools allow "transgendered" and "transitioning transgendered" students to use the bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms of the sex with which they identify and not the gender "assigned to them at birth." Furthermore these students must be allowed to participate in school activities reserved for students of the opposite biological sex (sports teams, girls and boys clubs, etc.).

The Obama DOJ writes: "Gender identity refers to an individual's internal sense of gender. A person's gender identity may be different from or the same as the person's sex assigned at birth. Sex assigned at birth refers to the sex designation recorded on an infant's birth certificate should such a record be provided at birth. Transgender describes those individuals whose gender identity is different from the sex they were assigned at birth. A transgender male is someone who identifies as male but was assigned the sex of female at birth; a transgender female is someone who identifies as female but was assigned the sex of male at birth."

America has crossed a new threshold. Less than a year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is a Constitutional right, a direct assault on the God-ordained institution of marriage. Now the Obama administration has in a sense assaulted the very image of God, in which scripture says he made human beings male and female (Gen 1:27; 5:2; 7:2; Dt 22:5; Mt 19:4). Meanwhile, the Obama administration is suing North Carolina to overturn HB2, a common sense law that protects the privacy of women and the innocence of girls from this bathroom, locker room, and dressing room madness. FRC President Tony Perkins has called this "insanity" and "an outrage." Members of Congress, governors, and state attorney generals have likewise spoken out. It is now time for all Americans to speak out, especially God's people!

May God use this to awaken America! May parents, students, teachers, employers and public office holders at every level speak out about this and use the power of their office and citizenship to say "no" to the Obama administration. May presidential contenders and all candidates for public office be required by the people to declare precisely what they will do to bring this extremism to an end. May this be the moment when we declare, like the Apostles, "We ought to obey God rather than men." May God stir his people to boldly pray and stand for what they believe. Surely God will not remain silent forever (Ex 18:21; Jdg 5:12-13; Acts 5:29; Eph 5:14;).

 

WE MUST DEFEND OUR NATION'S BORDER

 3/22/2016

Patriots,

 The latest attacks by radical Islamic terrorists in Brussels that has left more than two dozen dead is another wakeup call for Americans to take a stand to defend our nation from such attacks.

And the first step in defending our nation is stopping terrorists at our borders. That's why Grassfire is once again calling on Congress to take immediate action to STOP THE INFLUX OF REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS FROM JIHADIST INFLUENCED NATIONS!

Both Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump reiterated their call to stop the influx of terrorist refugees. In December, Speaker Ryan approved Obama's budget that approved over 100,000 immigrants and refugees from jihadist nations. This is outrageous and must be stopped!

Again, both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz just repeated their calls to stop the influx of immigrants and refugees from jihadist influenced nations. There is no excuse for a Republican Congress to not take action.


In order to secure our liberties here at home we must secure our borders! "We the People" have the power to secure the border; all we need is the fortitude to stand up against the people that we put in charge. Let them know that they work for us we do not work for them.

 If "We the People" don't stand up to them and let them know enough is enough: if we don't then it's over. For the first time there will be rapid terrorism on our soil in modern time. It will be worse than "911". It will be worse than the "War Between the States". It's time to take a stand; it's time to say enough is enough.

 There will be people that say it couldn't happen here. Well, stop and think about this. Every country that thought this has fallen. It wasn't from an outside attack, it was from the inside. It was because of Moral decay. So go to a mirror and ask yourself, "Am I part of the solution or am I the problem?" You can lie to others but you can't lie to yourself. If want to be part of the solution then get off your butts and get on your knees and pray for this Nation. Then get on your feet and stand up to the people in Washington D.C. 

GOD Bless America and may we Bless GOD again.

 

Cruz the Christian

 3/11/2016

Fellow Patriots,

 I ask that you stop and think about this. When Jesus was out on His campaign for Savior He did what He said for the people. He took His speeches and put out His agenda. Each time He spoke to the people the Pharisees tried to call Him a fake but couldn’t. They couldn’t because He told the truth and He showed the Results of His truth, but they still wouldn’t get be hind Him.

 He started as a grass roots speaker and spoke against the establishment in His time. But He was always campaigning against Satan. Satan had a lot of tricks up his sleeves. He would tell only half truths to the people but Jesus would come back and explained the whole truth and He would gain support a little at a time. Jesus would reprimand Satan in a way not to go against the Word. Satan would back off for a while until he thought Jesus was vulnerable. Then Jesus would win another argument. All the time He won He didn’t belittle Satan. Every time Jesus won an argument He gained more support just by being patient and truthful.

 When Cruz was elected Senator he put out an agenda and started speaking about his agenda. Well, the Republican Establishment didn’t like what he was saying. Cruz fought for “We the People” and went against the Establishment. They too were saying things to ridicule him and make him out to be a country bumpkin. Then he would tell them that they lied about him. He went on to prove it each and every time.

 Now that he put his hat into the Presidential ring; “The Establishment” is still going after him with half truths; which is the same as lying.  Again Cruz has proved he was telling the truth. So each time this happens he gains support. Like Jesus did with Satan, Cruz has not belittled “The Establishment” or the other candidates. He knows that like the people in Jesus’ time He couldn’t convert them all but he did win over enough people to win. This is what Cruz is doing, converting enough to stay in as a Presidential candidate. He is sticking with telling the truth, fighting for “We the People” and being a Christian.

 I ask my fellow Patriots to get behind Cruz and pray that GOD protect him and bless America again.

 

The President Remarks On the XL Pipeline

11/7/2015

This will and should make you upset or even mad. Obama is showing once again that he does not care about this Great Nation, once again he is trying to make it into a third world country. I’m asking Mr. President why do you think we should be equal to the other nations of the world? Why shouldn’t we be a leader and better than all other nations?

Then he sends this message! Well Mr. President, and I use this term loosely, this is not acceptable. We have ninety-four million people out of work and he will not let this go through. This is asinine.

Speaking from the Roosevelt Room, the President announced that the State Department determined that the Keystone XL Pipeline would not serve the national interest of the United States. So I ask, whose interest does it serve for it NOT to go through? Then he goes on to say:

For years, this topic has occupied a huge portion of our country's climate discourse. And after explaining why this pipeline "would not serve the national interest of the United States," the President called attention to the broader climate challenges facing America and the global community heading into international climate negotiations in Paris this December:

"…we’ve got to come together around an ambitious framework to protect the one planet that we’ve got while we still can. If we want to prevent the worst effects of climate change before it’s too late, the time to act is now. Not later. Not someday. Right here, right now." Meanwhile we have ninety-four million people out of work and all he can think about is this so called “Climate Change” crap.

Here's the full text of his remarks.

 

First Amendment Defense Act (FADA)

11/5/2015

 Passage of FADA is a priority and for good reason. Since a series of federal court rulings that struck down state marriage laws and ultimately the Supreme Court Obergefell v. Hodges ruling that redefined marriage to include persons of the same sex, we have seen an increasing number of cases of raw discrimination against Christians who hold a biblical view of marriage. And there are instances of anti-Christian, anti-religious liberty actions unrelated to Court decisions, despite the First Amendment and numerous Supreme Court decisions in favor of religious liberty. Critics of FADA point out that we already have the First Amendment. After all, religious liberty is the cornerstone of our Bill of Rights. However, as with marriage, some in our culture want to reinterpret and restrict that freedom to mean Christians are free to think what we want privately and perhaps even extend that right to express our beliefs within the four walls of our churches, but we are certainly not free to live out our faith in the public arena. Christian beliefs, especially about human sexuality and marriage, really have no place in our schools, our workplaces, the military, even in our political expression. Publically expressing beliefs in biblical sexuality and marriage is now viewed as ignorant, bigoted and even hate speech. Acting on those beliefs in the context of the market place, the military, and public office has resulted in threats, demotion, fines, firing and even imprisonment.

Far too many judges, public officials and bureaucrats in our federal and state agencies, men and women who should know better, are disregarding the First Amendment and even holding it in contempt. Thus federal legislation is needed to put things back into balance. If Congress does not act soon, civilian and military courts could be filled with lawsuits by atheists, LGBT activists, etc. Furthermore, we will soon see the prediction come to pass made by the Obama solicitor general when the high court heard arguments over Obergefell v. Hodges. He said, in essence, that if same-sex marriage became public policy, groups that disagree with the policy would face problems with their tax exempt status. Obviously, Christians won't get any help from the Courts or the White House. We must appeal to our elected members of Congress to defend us by law (H.R.2802; S.1598, Tony Perkins and Sen. Lee speak in Religious Liberty after Obergefell (video); Sen. Lee's Response to NY Times Editorial on the First Amendment).

  • Thank God and pray for Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), who have taken the lead to introduce FADA in the House and Senate. May Christians stir Congress, with Rep. Paul Ryan (R--Wisconsin) as the new House Speaker, to focus on FADA. May those who pray also contact their Congressman and Senators, urging them to co-sponsor FADA and to make it a priority! May God help our generation restore the First Freedom of the First Amendment and pass it on intact to our children and grandchildren! (Jdg 5:1-31; Is 56:1; Dan 3: 15-18; 11:32-35; Lk 4:18-19; Gal 5:1)

Finally, please join me in thanking God for the voters in Houston who overwhelmingly defeated HERO, an ordinance giving LGBT persons special rights, and transgender persons freedom to use opposite-sex public restrooms. This shows what can happen when pastors and churches unite to oppose immoral public policy (Is 5:20; Eze 3:16-22). Meanwhile, read and pray over this related, SHOCKING NEWS! Thank you for praying!

 

Obey GOD

9-17-2015

And they… commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered… Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye… [Later] the high priest asked... Did not we straightly command you that ye should not teach in this name? And, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine… Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. (Acts 4:18-19; 5:27-29)

In 2007, FRC President Tony Perkins in introducing a booklet about religious liberty, began with a quote from our first U.S. President: "The Liberty enjoyed by the people of these states of worshiping Almighty God agreeably to their conscience, is not only among the choicest of their blessings, but also of their rights" (George Washington, in a message to the Annual Meeting of Quakers, 1789).

Tony continued:

The Founders of our country considered religious liberty our "first freedom." In their view, it was the bedrock upon which all other freedoms rest. Why? They understood that one's right to worship God and follow his conscience according to the principles of his religious faith was foundational to all morality. A man whose religious faith was repressed could never be a loyal citizen, since the state was usurping his first allegiance and costing him his primary, or first, freedom. George Washington's motto was, "Deeds, not Words." He lived it: During the Constitutional Convention, he rarely spoke, and those who knew him well noted his courtly, almost diffident manner. Yet his actions -- his leadership during the Revolution, his policies and practices as our first President, and his well-reputed example as a man of prayer and reverence -- spoke to a measure of conviction few American statesmen have ever come close to matching…

In his Farewell Address, Washington wrote, "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man ought to respect and to cherish them." Without religious liberty, Washington's exhortation would be meaningless. With religious freedom, it forms the very fabric of our nation… (Tony Perkins' introduction to What the Founders Really Did on Religious Liberty: "Deeds not Words" by FRC's Senior Fellow for Policy Studies, Bob Morrison.

If we wish to preserve our freedom to obey Jesus Christ openly at home, at work, and in the public square in the months and years ahead, Christians must take a stand for Religious Liberty now. We must prevail for our own children and for Christians around the world who have looked to America in hopes that they would one day enjoy religious liberty in their own nations. If our elected executives and lawmakers do not act to undergird our Constitutional guarantees with policies and laws that protect Christians from being forced against conscience to approve of behavior the Bible clearly deems as sinful (Rom 1:32), we will soon see not just a few, but hundreds and thousands of American Christians punished for their simple faith and obedience to God. Every American has a stake in this fight, whatever their political or religious persuasion.

 

The Crackdown Has Begun

9/14/2015

It was said barely nine weeks ago a crackdown was coming and your own religious freedom would be in jeopardy. I didn't think it would hit this fast and hit this hard.

But here it is.

While the Supreme Court was pondering in Obergefell v. Hodges whether to invent—out of thin air—a constitutional "right" to same-sex marriage, we heard President Obama's own appointee, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, admit that religious groups could be at risk of being punished if they stood by the tenets of their faith and refused to go along with the redefinition of marriage.

How would they be punished? By losing their tax-exempt status, crippling their ability to raise funds and accomplish their mission.

And more. Barely a week after the Obergefell ruling, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries was emboldened enough to order a company called Sweet Cakes by Melissa to pay a lesbian couple $135,000 because Melissa declined to participate in their wedding by baking them a cake!

Some state government agencies and officials are already penalizing people for their moral and religious convictions about marriage!

What we are seeing are the side effects of a tragedy.

The New York Times columnist, Mark Oppenheimer, declared in Time magazine: "Rather than try to rescue tax-exempt status for organizations that dissent from settled public policy on matters of race or sexuality, we need to take a more radical step. It's time to abolish, or greatly diminish, their tax-exempt statuses."

Our freedoms are under fire in a way we have never before witnessed. We must fight back.

I’m in support of a new bill, the First Amendment Defense Act, introduced by U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and U.S. Representative Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho), which will safeguard Christians who believe in natural marriage, protecting you from federal government retaliation.

But the Left is pushing back hard.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) are both being hammered by the Left already, trying to convince them that America is against this.

They've got to hear from YOU. We need an immediate outpouring of response to counter the Left's lies and distortions. These leaders need to hear what you think, not just what the Left is telling them.

As Senator Lee, co-author of the bill, has said, "America is inhabited by peace-loving men and women who want to be able to live and worship and believe as they see fit, who want to be able to do so free of any retaliation by their government based on their religious beliefs."

This can't wait. Clearly we must stand for the protection of your fundamental freedoms—and we will.

  • The First Amendment Defense Act is a common-sense measure that will prevent the federal government from penalizing you simply because you hold to the biblical view of marriage! It simply holds the government to the same standard that we hold people to in a pluralistic society: Respect each other's genuinely held religious beliefs.
  • This bill will prohibit the federal government from penalizing persons for their personal moral or religious beliefs in natural marriage in federal employment, grants, contracts, tax treatment, and other programs.
  • And it protects individuals and organizations that believe, teach, or establish in codes of conduct that sexual intimacy is reserved for natural marriage.

This bill has momentum in Congress. At last count, 145 Representatives and 36 Senators have already agreed to cosponsor this crucial legislation. Even the powerful, conservative Republican Study Committee has thrown its influential support behind the bill. Patriots, let’s get behind this bill and defeat the left or any one else that opposes our Freedom of Religion. Call your Representative and Senators and let them know this is the right thing to do.

 

Planned Parenthood Defunding

9/2/2015

George D. Boardman, D.D. (1828-1903), born in Burma to young missionary parents, George and Sarah Boardman, followed his father's footsteps into Christian ministry, studying at Brown and Newton Theological Institution. He took his first pastorate in 1855 at the Baptist Church in Barnwell, South Carolina. His convictions regarding human slavery led him to the 2nd Baptist Church in Rochester, NY, then, in 1864, the First Church of Philadelphia, where he served for 30 years. From his brief article, "The Scriptural Doctrine of the Blood."

"Blood" is one of the characteristic, regent words of Scripture, occurring in it more than four hundred times. A word so recurrent must mean something fundamental. In fact, it is the blood of Christ which is the basis of Christianity, the very pivot of the Christian religion.

Moses forbad the eating of blood: "For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar, to make an atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul" (Lev 17:11). "The life (soul) of the flesh is in the blood."… How thoroughly the idea that blood is the seat of life has taken possession of the race is evident… The word "blood" occurs 731 times in Shakespeare's plays… (Similarly often in the ancient classics).

So the Scriptural writers: "The voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto Me from the ground"; "Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God"; "Precious shall their blood be in His sight"; "All the righteous blood shed upon the earth from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zachariah the son of Barachiah"; "I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood." "How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost Thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?" The blood being thus instinctively conceived as the seat of life, and so the representative of the soul or person, no wonder that blood has ever been regarded as a sacred thing. Here is the secret of the Mosaic prohibition to eat blood, a prohibition frequently repeated, and in vss. 10-14 with solemn minuteness of detail. The blood being regarded as the symbol and home of the personality, to eat it was to be guilty of sacrilegious cannibalism… (Boardman, read all at BibleHub.com)

The blood of 56 million innocent unborn children, slaughtered "legally" since 1973, like Abel's, cries out to God. Among them are the millions decapitated and mutilated by Planned Parenthood, their body parts sold for profit, while U.S. Taxpayers mindlessly funds half of the group's giant budget. Part of repentance is defunding Planned Parenthood. Our nation's only hope is in repentance and the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

 With lazy August vacations have come a slackening in viewership of The Center for Medical Progress' groundbreaking video Planned Parenthood exposé. With number 8 of a promised 12, viewers may be sick of the horrors that they see going on behind closed doors at Planned Parenthood. But if we refuse this opportunity to stop taxpayer funding of an organization that practices such evil (we taxpayers fund half of the abortion giant's enormous budget) while the nation has been awakened to these horrors, we will be a sorry. Only God knows the degree to which growing violence in America is the result of our 42 years of sowing abortion violence. But we know Scripture warns that God is not mocked and we will reap what we have sown (Gal 6:7): who knows to what degree destroyed lives, broken homes, epidemic sexual immorality, etc. are related to our sowing of abortion. But we are beginning to see a radical increase in murder and violence across America, and many believe it is a direct product of our national sin of abortion. House leaders are discussing a plan to vote to freeze funding for Planned Parenthood this fall. And the Senate has reserved the right to vote on their defunding bill a second time.

But Pro-lifers who understand the politics fear that the GOP leadership will not take a risk to push the bill through by attaching it to must-pass legislation such as the Continuing Resolution (CR) which would authorize spending and borrowing to keep the federal government running. They fear that the President would rather shut down the government than stop funding Planned Parenthood -- then blame Republicans. A simple vote on a stand-alone bill to defund, then facing a presidential veto, then failing to override would be business as usual and caving in to the President. Experts believe Republicans must exercise the political will to stop this evil once for all, even as many state governors and legislatures are doing so. Meanwhile at least 3 states have defunded Planned Parenthood and 13 are conducting investigations since the exposé began. 

In the wake of claims Planned Parenthood is “monetizing” the body parts of unborn children, Liberty Counsel Action is demanding Congress Investigate and Defund Planned Parenthood (PPH).

The immoral and despicable nature of Planned Parenthood’s real agenda has once again been caught on tape for the world to see. And while PPH is crying “foul,” Members of Congress and citizens are demanding a full investigation and an end to taxpayers funding of its gruesome practices and procedures.

In the recent undercover videos once again exposing the horrific and immoral practices of PPH, the idea that a taxpayer-funded organization like PPH would seek revenue from the body parts of unborn children is beyond barbaric – it is criminal!

 That’s why, as a concerned American citizen, I am calling on the United States Congress to fully and thoroughly investigate the practices and procedures of Planned Parenthood, and put an end to all federal funding of Planned Parenthood!

 Demand Congress “Investigate and Defund Planned Parenthood” Now!

 

As A Christian

8/24/2015

As a Christian, I believe that Jesus was the ultimate Passover lamb, his sacrifice of shed blood cleanses me from my sins and puts me in right standing and covenant with God. I believe that He gave his life freely because He loved me. Given that, how could the Jewish people be responsible for His death or be considered “Christ killers.” As I celebrate Easter and the miracle of Jesus’ resurrection I cannot imagine wanting to hurt the members of my local Jewish community. Instead, I am challenged by Jesus’ words in 1 John 3:16 “By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us, and we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” I want to walk out my Christianity by showing everyone I come in contact with how much God loves them through my actions. My prayer is that I will be an example of Christian faith that is far different from the Christianity experienced by Jews for centuries.

 

Has The Church Forgotten the Military

 5/20/2015

On Memorial Day we remember those who have fallen in the great fight for freedom—those who have given their lives or limbs so that we might worship without hindrance. But will the Church forget what many thousands have fought for, those who gave the last full measure of devotion to defend? Will the Church forget the principles upon which this nation was founded -- liberty, godliness, piety, and morality?

I'm afraid that not only will the Church forget them, but largely the Church has already forgotten them.

The media makes a mockery of Christians, the Christian faith and Christian values, and those who speak out for the sacredness of life are branded as extremists… And 300,000 pulpits are silent. Christian morality cannot be taught in schools, but atheistic immorality is… And 300,000 pulpits are silent. Rock music fills the airwaves and our children's minds with music that legitimizes rape, murder, sadomasochism, adultery and even satanic worship… And 300,000 pulpits are silent. A majority of states now have lotteries and gambling is no longer a crime… And 300,000 pulpits are silent.

The Church hasn't always been silent. Through the centuries churches have moved to get rid of most of the great evils of our world. It was through the work of Christians that slavery was eliminated from Great Britain. Two-thirds of the members of the Abolition Society in New England were Christian clergymen.

No, the Church was not always silent. The Church spoke out on child labor laws and wives being beaten and abused. The Church has spoken out about prison reform and reform of asylums for the insane.

God needs men who will speak out on the issues of the day. Martin Luther said something to the effect, "Though we be active in the battle, if we are not fighting where the battle is the hottest, we are traitors to the cause." Be not afraid, Christ is with you! If the Church doesn't speak out, who will?

If right now this country were suddenly filled with passionate intensity for the cause of Jesus Christ, for the spread of His Gospel, and for the advance of His morality throughout the nation, next Sunday the churches of the land would be packed to overflowing!

Where is the intensity? They have it! One historian said that the people who have that intensity are the people who always win. Ultimately it is going to be a decision as to which side lacks conviction and which side is filled with passionate intensity. Will it be those who oppose Christ, or those who are for the kingdom of Jesus Christ? Christ says "…seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness…" (Mt 6:33 KJV).

Pray that God will fill you with intensity to do whatever you can to become involved, to get out of the bleachers and onto the playing field, and become a participant in the greatest struggle in the history of the world—a struggle for goodness, a struggle for godliness, a struggle for Christ against Satan. That is the battle we are in.

 

Cruz Driving Democrats Nuts

Patriots,

Democrats are terrified of Senator Ted Cruz. 

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz recently said, “Ted Cruz is the embodiment of everything that is wrong with the GOP.”

With attacks like that, Senator Cruz is clearly doing something right.

Why are the Democrats so scared of Ted Cruz?

Simply put, it's because he doesn’t play their game and isn’t trying to win the approval of the media or the DC establishment. 

Wasserman Schultz’s remarks show how the Democrats are increasingly worried about Ted Cruz’s rise in the field of presidential candidates.

The Democrats are terrified of Senator Cruz because he effectively articulates conservatism and stands by his principles.

That’s why you can be sure the attacks on Ted Cruz will keep coming and coming. And they’ll be vicious. From Democrats, the media, and even some career politicians in the Republican Party.

It will drive the Democrats nuts.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz says Ted Cruz is what's wrong with the GOP, but the truth is he's what's right with the party today. Instead of only giving lip service to conservative principles, he actually fights for them.

With your help, Ted Cruz will keep building momentum, win the Republican nomination, and make DC listen! 

It's what the Democrats fear most.

 

Protect Israel Update


4/29/2015

Dear Patriots,

I just received some exciting news from Brigitte Gabriel and Washington, D.C. regarding our efforts to protect Israel! One of our high priority legislative goals, which pushes back against boycotts, divestment, and sanctions against Israel, has crossed a major threshold.

All over the word, anti-Israel activists have attempted to undercut Israel by imposing boycotts on firms that work with or are based in Israel, forcing divestment from Israeli companies, and imposing sanctions on Israel — a set of actions known collectively as the BDS movement.

Their goal is simple – destroy Israel economically. But thanks to the hard work of Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., and your unwavering support, we’ve won a major victory against these anti-Israel forces!

The measure is an amendment to trade agreement legislation was approved unanimously by both the House Ways and Means Committee and Senate Finance Committee. It requires negotiators working on a trade agreement with the European Union to make the rejection of BDS as a condition of improved trade relations with the U.S.

"This is nothing short of a historic win for the U.S.-Israel relationship and a hammer blow to the BDS movement--a campaign solely dedicated to the delegitimization and isolation of our ally Israel,” said Roskam. “I strongly support free trade negotiations with the EU, but we must also confront the disturbing, rising tide of BDS activity from countries across Europe. This measure will make combating these boycotts a principal trade objective of the United States in our negotiations with the EU and send a clear message that countries seeking free trade with the United States cannot participate in politically-motivated economic warfare against Israel”

“Israel is one of America’s closest allies and the only stable Democracy in the Middle East,” said Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland. “We may not agree with every Israeli policy, but we cannot allow our potential trading partners in the EU to fall prey to efforts that threaten Israel’s existence.”

This victory shows once again that when we work together, we can do great things! Thanks to everyone who called, emailed, and wrote letters to Congress in support of this legislation!

Working together, we are making a difference!

Always devoted,

Patriot Ken

 

Has the Constitution Changed?

 4/28/2015

 Has the Constitution changed? No it hasn’t, the twisting of words have gradually changed the Constitution and this started back when Woodrow Wilson became President. Even though the Progressive agenda may have been brought up before him, he is the one that implemented it. Gradually it's been beefed up. Now with Obama as President it's come to a head.

Our Founding Fathers had the wisdom to know that this would happen. Like Benjamin Franklin told a lady when asked what just happened? He said, "We just gave you a Republic if you can keep it." This is why we need to teach the meaning of the Constitution, not what we think it means. Remember what GOD said, (paraphrasing) you should not add or subtract from the Word. This goes for the Constitution also. Words mean things and when you replace a word here and there it will change the meaning completely. That's exactly what the Progressives and the Left are doing. So you see, the Constitution hasn't changed words are being added and subtracted.

The Constitution still belongs to the People.

 

Obama Importing Illegal Aliens’ Relatives at Taxpayer Expense

4/8/2015

In an outrageous new development, the Obama Administration is running a program to bring to the U.S. the Central American relatives of the illegal aliens it has amnestied (or plans to amnesty).

Instead of the minors and near minors facing the dangerous and expensive trip from Central America on their own (like the 60,000 who came in the 2014 (border surge), now these persons can be flown in directly courtesy of the American taxpayer.

Last year, Pres. Obama said he would solve the unaccompanied minors’ crisis. Well, here is his full plan coming to fruition. Recruit the relatives down there and bring 'em up at taxpayer expense.

Illegal alien parents in the U.S. who have received some form of amnesty can now apply to have the children they left behind in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador receive refugee status, free transportation to the U.S., resettlement assistance, and access to free education and other benefits.

Those who receive refugee status will eventually qualify for permanent residence and citizenship. Those who don’t qualify as refugees can still be eligible for parole and a trip to the U.S.

If the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals eventually allows Obama's massive Executive Amnesty of millions of illegal aliens to go forward, their children and spouses from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador can be amnestied and sponsored for citizenship even though they don’t yet reside in the United States. I'd have to call this proactive amnesty. Now, thanks to Obama setting aside the Constitution to re-write and administer immigration laws himself, the government has gotten into the business of RECRUITING AND FINANCING those who would have been illegal immigrants, saving them the trouble and expense of crossing the border themselves.

Details of the program published by the State Department give NO NUMERICAL LIMIT to those who can come. It seems likely to me that a good deal of the total Central American population might eventually find a way to get themselves to the U.S. through this program, fully funded by the taxpayers.

You see, it's not only children and spouses who can come now, but also people who are thought to form a "financial unit" of that family. In other words; cousins, aunts, uncles, friends, practically anyone will be able to come.

You think this won't happen? Sorry - it's happening right now. According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), 97.9% of the 60,000 unaccompanied minors who crossed our southern border last summer were released to family members living in the U.S. In other words, they can melt into the U.S. population and, of course, never fear deportation as long as Obama is president.

 

Has Ted Cruz Shown Leadership

3/24/2015

Back in November 2014 Cruz said, “he would push hard for a Republican-led Senate to be as conservative and confron­tational as the Republican-led House.” He has said what he would do by going against McConnell. He has been confron­tational and truthful when he went against the establishment Republicans. He has been more of a leader in the Senate than McConnell. Cruz also said he would like the Senate to be as aggressive in trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act as the House, which has voted more than 50 times to get rid of the law. Once again, he fought against the establishment to defund Obamacare. Once again, he showed leadership.

Cruz wrote an opinion piece in USA Today laying out 10 conservative priorities he thinks Republicans should pursue, including moving toward a flat tax and drawing a hard line on illegal immigrants. In the interview here, Cruz reiterated some of those points, such as approving the Keystone XL pipeline. He is fighting the media like ABC’s David Muir when he gave viewers a distorted history lesson, saying Cruz was “The combative Tea Party favorite who shut down the government for days over Obamacare.” Donny Deutsch, also on MSNBC, called Cruz “unelectable” and added “I think he’s the worst. I think he’s scary, I think he’s dangerous, I think he’s slimy and I think he brings no fresh ideas.” Well, they actually spoke the partial truth for once. He is combative, scary to the progressives, dangerous to the progressives. This is why he is a leader and would make a great conservative candidate. He is fighting for our Freedoms and our Liberties, just like Ronald Reagan did. Everything he says and does comes from the heart. Rush Limbaugh put it best, "The Left always tells you who they fear most by who they attack most", they are more afraid of him than any other person. So to me, that makes him qualified.

 

Obama’s Plan to Regulate The Internet Is Worse Than We Thought

3/12/2015

The FCC officially posted the order implementing President Obama's plan to regulate the Internet -- two weeks AFTER they voted on party lines to adopt it.

It's more critical than ever that you urge Congress to step in and overturn the FCC order.

The agency that wants to control the whole Internet is incompetent to even run their own website, and for much of the morning when I tried to read the plan I got this error message:

"The normal FCC website is temporarily unavailable due to technical difficulties."

It would be funny if the stakes weren't so high. Eventually I got the website to work and downloaded the 400 page order.1

It's bad. Really bad. Even worse than we thought, if that's possible.

Some quick things that was noticed:

1. Tax hikes are coming, and soon. The order says: "The Commission has referred the question of how the Commission should modify the universal service contribution methodology to the Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service (Joint Board) and requested a recommended decision by April 7, 2015." Republican commissioner Ajit Pai points out in his dissent: "many have interpreted this referral as a question of how to tax broadband, not whether to do so, and states have already begun discussions on how they will spend the extra money."

2. These guys want us to believe the Internet is a telephone. "This Order updates the definition of public switched network to reflect current technology, by including services that use public IP addresses," it says. This is an idea originally rejected during the Clinton administration because it is factually wrong and it opens the door to massive international mischief. Russia has long been pushing the same definitional change as a way to gain United Nations control over Internet governance.2

3. The order creates a new "Standard for Internet Conduct." When directly questioned two weeks ago on what it would cover, Chairman Tom Wheeler said "We don't really know." Now we see in the order that it will be decided on a case-by-case basis not even by the commissioners appointed by the president, but by nameless, unaccountable bureaucrats at the "Enforcement Bureau" to whom Internet companies will ask permission before offering products and services.

4. The details matter, and these guys have no idea what they're doing. For instance, the order includes "adding packet loss as a measure of network performance." Berkeley computer scientist Nicholas Weaver -- who actually supports net neutrality regulation -- wrote last week: "this will kill interactive video like Skype, FaceTime, and Google hangouts and also decimate high-interactivity online games... Unless the FCC removes this clause, the regulations are likely to seriously damage the Internet." 3

Next week will be the first confrontation between Congress and the FCC as Chairman Tom Wheeler and other commissioners face Congress. We need our elected officials to know that we are outraged by Obama's plan and we expect them to act to stop it.

 

Natural Marriage is GOD Ordained

2/25/2015

David Axelrod, former senior advisor to President Obama, revealed in his tell-all book, Believer: My Forty Years in Politics, that President Obama lied to the American people about his views on same-sex marriage to gain votes in 2008. Axelrod further admitted that he was among those consultants who advised the President to conceal his views…  
 

"Opposition to gay marriage was particularly strong in the black church, and as he ran for higher office, he grudgingly accepted the counsel of more pragmatic folks like me, and modified his position to support civil unions rather than marriage, which he would term a 'sacred union.'"

Our Chameleon-in-Chief has again been exposed, as reported by Zeke Miller in the Washington Post ...

"As a state senate candidate in 1996, Obama filled out a questionnaire saying 'I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.' But 12 years later as a candidate for president, Obama told Rick Warren's Saddleback Church that marriage could only extend to heterosexual couples. 'I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman,' Obama said at the time. 'Now, for me as a Christian — for me — for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God's in the mix.'

To win election in Illinois, Mr. Obama favored homosexual "marriage." To win a national election, marriage was a sacred union between a man and woman.
 
Two years later, in what then appeared to be a policy flip-flop, the President announced that his views on same-sex marriage were "evolving." Soon after, Eric Holder determined that his Department of Justice would no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act – and would work to strike down any prohibition of same-sex "marriage."
 

The will of a large majority of Americans was marginalized in Barack Obama's transformative process. Now, same-sex marriage is being thrust down our collective throats while religious liberties are being disregarded by this same administration.
 
New threats are forcing magistrates, pastors, bakers, photographers, business owners, event planners, and others to celebrate and assist in something against their deeply held religious beliefs.

Patriots, we must aggressively defend probate judges and many others from what is an all-out legal assault from organizers of the radical homosexual movement, the ACLU, our lawless President, and the misguided media who threaten and continue to demonize law-abiding people.

We are in a constitutional crisis in America. Government officials from – probate judges to the President of the United States – are ignoring the rule of law and arrogantly creating their own laws.

The United States Supreme Court created a judicial quagmire when they ruled against the Federal Defense of Marriage Act and struck down California's Proposition 8.
 
Since their ruling, state and local courts and legislatures have become mired in debate as to what constitutes "marriage" in America. Judicial chaos, like that which is unfolding in Alabama, has wrongfully coerced states to capitulate to the homosexual agenda and abandon their own laws passed by state lawmakers.
 

A trial court's decision about the constitutionality of a federal question applies only to that case; it does not overturn the state's Constitution. Legislators make laws, not judges, and not Presidents. Americans fought the Revolutionary War to win the right of a representative form of governance, we cannot give it up now amidst this battle over same-sex marriage!

 No debate: Natural marriage is God-ordained.
 
Marriage predates government and civil authorities. No legislative body or court has the authority to redefine marriage! Marriage was not created by religion or government and is a union of one man and one woman. Contrary to the wishes of pro-homosexual activists, the fight for natural marriage is not over. The cases that the courts are engaged in expose the conflicts erupting across the United States as intolerant activists force their will on the majority of Americans who refuse to participate in same-sex unions.
 
The same-sex marriage agenda threatens religious liberty and freedom of conscience.  Although it is full of rhetoric about tolerance and equal rights, the pro-homosexual agenda is anything but tolerant.

 

What Obama Thinks

2/19/2015

Congress is in recess, but President Obama's bizarre words and behavior, which seemed to have reached a new level at the National Prayer Breakfast earlier this month, has only continued. President Obama's shocking lecture to Christians at the Breakfast, telling us to get off our high horse with our attitude toward the anti-Christian Islamists, because Christians are little different. We learned later that White House and State Department officials had just met with representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood. Just days earlier, the President called the murder of Jews by Islamists in a Kosher Deli in Paris, France, "random shootings" of a "bunch of folks" and with many words said that the news media has been sensationalizing the terrorist threat, when other issues, like "climate change" are really far more pressing.

Then, when 21 innocent Christians were executed in Libya by ISIS, the President avoided in any way, labeling ISIS as being Islamist organization. Even worse, he failed to identify the Christians, who died martyrs deaths praying aloud, "Help me Jesus," as they were simultaneously beheaded with knives in the name of Allah. The President failed to mention that 21 innocent Egyptian victims were targeted precisely because they were Christians. Meanwhile, a senior State Department spokeswoman said killing radical Islamists alone will not defeat them; that they need to be lifted from poverty with jobs programs. And while the world remains in shock and mourning over the deaths of the 21 Egyptian Christians who were beheaded by ISIS, President Barack Obama spent the day playing golf in California. Franklin Graham, referencing the ISIS released video showing the beheadings, entitled, "A MESSAGE SIGNED WITH BLOOD TO THE NATION OF THE CROSS," asked "Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians? Where is the universal condemnation by Muslim leaders around the world?" "We're going to Rome next," the ISIS spokesman said. Pope Francis urged Christians to stand united amid this assault on Christianity, saying: "before killing them they don't ask if they're Anglicans, Lutherans, Catholics or Orthodox. The blood is mixed."

Yesterday, Iraq's U.N. Ambassador reported that 45 Iraqis were burned alive nearby the base where 400 U.S. Troops are stationed, and said ISIS has murdered dozens of medical doctors for refusing to surgically remove organs of their victims for sale to finance ISIS operations. Bill O'Reilly, Fox News' top talk-show host/news commentator, saying this IS a Holy War, has called for the obvious -- for Christian Clergy everywhere to pull out the stops to let President Obama know that this way of thinking must stop and the President must take serious action to stop ISIS!

Let us pray:

It is time for you to act, Lord; your law is being broken. Awaken your people in America to stand in the gap with extraordinary prayer and to demand that our elected representatives act to defeat ISIS and hold President accountable to defend all Americans, including Christians and Jews who have been uniquely targeted by ISIS. Transform our President's thinking. Raise up leaders who, like the Sons of Issachar, understand the times and know what Israel and America ought to do. Grant this President and our next President the wisdom, courage, will and fitness to lead the U.S. and the world to defeat ISIS and other Radical Islamists in a war likely to continue for decades (Jdg 5:12-31; Ps 2: all; Ps 119:126, NIV; 144:1-8; Rev 12:1).

 

Obama Says Obamacare Is Working

But For Who?

2/19/2015

Sylvia Burwell, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, briefed the President about the end of this year's Open Enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act. She told him that 11.4 million Americans have signed up or re-enrolled for quality, affordable health insurance.

That's right, 11.4 million. And more people newly signed up on Sunday than on any other day before.

"It gives you some sense of how hungry people were out there for affordable, accessible health insurance," the President said. "And that's really the top-line message: The Affordable Care Act is working."

The Obama Administration are running around like a rooster in a hen house, all giddy and puffing out their chest. They are so proud of themselves that people are signing up for Obamacare. They’re so proud of themselves that people are using the website; that still don’t work right. What Obama is really saying is, these idiots still don’t get it. What they’re doing is putting their FREEDOOM and LIBERTIES under the heavy hand of a socialized government. Yes it’s working, not for the people but for the Government.

 The reason the people are flocking to the website to sign up for healthcare is because it’s the law. Even though it’s unconstitutional, in my opinion people are signing up because they are obeying the law. It’s not because they’re hungry for affordable, accessible health insurance.

 This is totally unconstitutional as we all know, but our elected officials seem to go along with it. Why you may ask? In my opinion, it’s because they are getting a kick back. Not directly, but by the lobbyist. Instead of doing the right thing and having the guts to repeal Obamacare, they put their tail between their legs and holler we’re trying but the Democrats won’t let us. We gave them the majority in both Houses so that they would have the tools to defeat the Democrats and still they cry.

 We fought a war so that “We the People” wouldn’t be taxed without representation. Are we going to have to fight another one so that we won’t be taxed unconstitutionally?

 

Do Not Mess With the Internet

2/11/2015

Patriots,

Internet use and online communication is the scourge of autocratic governments that deny basic freedoms to their people. Internet information has proven to be a spark that creates the fire of freedom in the most oppressive corners of the world.

The Internet is one of the most positive forces for improving the human condition the world has ever known. It is the hub of innovation for the economy in America and the world. It's a source of progress, democratic distribution of information, societal change, personal empowerment and technological innovation.
An unregulated Internet has been the single greatest catalyst in history for individual liberty and FREE markets on the planet. It has created the greatest revolution since Henry Ford invented the Model T.

This attempt by the Obama Administration to control the Internet as a public utility takes power away from consumers, website developers and small business owners and puts it in the hands of Government. This will drive up costs, slow down innovation, and put unelected political appointees in charge of picking winners and losers. If the Government isn’t stopped, this will create censorship. We will not be able to even write a letter to our loved ones without some bureaucrat reading it first. This is totally against the first Amendment. The Obama Administration is side stepping the First Amendment and also stealing our money. They are trying to shut up “We the People” and trying to control us. When this happens, that’s when we lose our FREEDOM.  If "Net Neutrality" is passed, for the first time ever, the Internet will be under the rule of an antiquated regulation designed for land line telephones. President Obama wants to take something that’s working just fine, and tie it up in red tape; sound familiar? We've seen this movie before; it's called ObamaCare.

The FCC plans to vote on Feb. 26th on whether or not the government should take their usual heavy handed approach to controlling the Internet or do the right thing and leave it alone. It will take away America's moral authority to argue that autocratic regimes have no right to assert control of the Internet in their own countries. This Government can’t keep its hands off of anything that shows success. This is not only a direct attack on the free market, but it will also result in an increase in Internet access fees for millions of consumers in America. It’s a massive tax on the middle class, plain and simple. Let's get this straight; technology has progressed because it has been driven by a free and open Internet, not because of DC bureaucrats. This latest attempt to regulate the web threatens to interrupt that positive innovation, set the market back, and kill jobs.

FREE markets are worth protecting. Congress should vote NO on bringing the Internet under Federal Government control. If the Government takes the internet over, that’s when we lose our FREEDOM.

 

Once Again Obama Bypasses the Constitution

 2/10/2015

Patriots,

H.R. 240 (the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Appropriations Act of 2015) should be a deep concern with “We the People”. President Obama's unilateral action is a harmful and uncalled action.

As you know, on November 20, 2014, President Obama outlined a plan to grant illegal immigrants options outside of our current law.  His Executive Order would give illegal immigrants who have been in the United States for at least five years the chance to apply for work permits and temporary deferrals for deportation.  It would apply to about four million minors and undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.

I am extremely pissed that President Obama has once again decided to bypass the U.S. Constitution and ignore our system of checks and balances.  Instead of working with Congress, the President has decided to act outside his bounds and reach for another executive power grab.  

Even worse, the President's failure to enforce our current immigration laws is an affront to the millions of people who have followed the rules to gain legal status.  If these illegal immigrants want to become Americans, then I say come through the front door not the back. Get you a sponsor, get a work visa (Green Card), pay your taxes then take your citizenship test. When this is done we will welcome you with open arms. Until then you are not welcomed.

There's no question that our immigration system needs reform, but I do not believe the President's idea is the way to do it.  We shouldn't reward those who have broken American laws by entering the country illegally at the expense of those who have followed the rules and have waited for many years.

We can do better.  Congress must now use every tool they have to stop the President's power grab and instead push him to enforce our current laws.  The House of Representatives passed a bill on December 4, 2014 to prevent the Administration from enacting any of these specific proposals on immigration.  

On January 14, 2015 by a vote of 237 to 183, the House passed the Aderholt amendment to H.R. 240, the DHS Appropriations bill. This amendment would prohibit the use of any fees or appropriated funds to implement the Morton Memo, and the President's November 2014 executive actions, or any similar policies. Also, by a vote of 218 to 209 the House passed the Blackburn Amendment, which defunds DACA. Ultimately, H.R. 240 passed the House by a vote of 236 to 191.

I’m also against the "Cromnibus", the runaway spending bill to fund the government past December 11, 2014. I had concerns that it didn’t put the proper restrictions on how the White House enacts immigration policy.  I also disagree with the method in which congress passed this bill.  At a time when our national debt has topped $18 trillion, I believe each spending bill should be given thorough consideration and debate.  When congress forced a comprehensive spending vote just hours before its deadline, wasn’t able to give spending priorities the consideration they deserved.

In today's world, it is critical that “We the People” in this Great Nation should know what is going on in the federal government. Remember they work for you, you don’t work for them. When the elected officials stop representing The People it is time for them to answer to The People."

 

Republicans Must Take Concrete Action to Stop Obama Amnesty

1/7/2015

This week, the 114th Congress begins and one of the Congressional Republican Leadership's purported top priorities is to block President Obama's executive action amnesty.  Unfortunately, the leadership has shown little desire to truly tackle and derail the amnesty and has simply allowed individual members to offer individual bills that have no hope of succeeding.

If Republicans truly want to push back against the Obama amnesty, they need to make sure that defunding the amnesty is in the DHS appropriations bill.  At the moment, that is America's best hope.

We need to tell your Republican Members of Congress and urge him/her not to waste time with bills that have no chance of stopping the Obama amnesty, and instead put great effort into derailing the amnesty using the DHS appropriations bill.

I know that many of your Republican Representatives are chomping at the bit to introduce legislation to defund President Obama's unilateral, illegal, and anti-American amnesty.  While supporting such legislation certainly makes one feel good, it will not produce the desired result.  They need to focus all their energies on making sure that the DHS appropriations bill contains language to defund Obama's amnesty.  This is the best way Congress has to bring back fairness, law, and order to our nation.

Millions of American people may never be able to find a full-time job again.  Less-skilled Americans lucky enough to have work may see themselves replaced by newly-amnestied illegal aliens who are willing to do the same work for lower pay and fewer benefits. The president may rejoice, but most Americans will have very little to celebrate in the coming years and decades.

I know you want to fight President Obama's amnesty and I understand the urge to support standalone legislation that would achieve this.  However, these bills simply cannot work because the president will veto them.

At the moment, the best way to stop President Obama's amnesty is to make sure it is defunded in the DHS appropriations bill.

 

How David Won And How We Can Win

12/31/2014

I want to share with you a strategy for winning this two-front battle by learning from the biblical story of David and Goliath. While it feels like the deck is stacked against us, if we learn the lessons of David, the "Goliaths" of our day do not stand a chance!

Malcolm Gladwell's book "David And Goliath" offers a fascinating view of the biblical story. It's a view that was new to me even though I had heard that story preached dozens of times.

We like to look at the story and say that David was over-matched. David was just a small shepherd boy who won against all odds through his faith in the miraculous. And while that is all part of the story, according to Gladwell, Goliath never really stood a chance.

As Gladwell shares, it was Goliath who was out-matched. It was Goliath who was destined to be defeated. It was Goliath who never stood a chance against David.

Here's why ...The problem with our basic idea of the "David and Goliath" story is that we view David as being overmatched, when in fact David had several key tactical advantages.

While Goliath came ready for hand-to-hand combat in close range with heavy armor, David rejected the traditional armor and the traditional methods. Instead, David remembered his training when he was protecting his flock against the lion and the bear. So he took up his sling and stayed light on his feet. What's more, David likely never got within reach of Goliath. As a result, Goliath never stood a chance. He went down with one stone from David's sling!

Gladwell backs his theory up with historical facts. Quoting one historian, Gladwell says that in warfare, smaller armies that fight with unconventional means win nearly two-thirds of the time against stronger armies. But if those smaller armies fight the battle on the terms of the stronger army, they lose nearly three fourths of the time.

Just like David, we can beat the "Goliaths" of our day if we will use unconventional means, stay light on our feet and fight using the tools we have been trained in -- not the tools of the "establishment" forces of our day. This is precisely the strategy we need to pursue right now to defeat the "Goliaths" of our day... We should recognize that 21st century political and cultural engagement is not based on a massive centralized institution or the personality of one individual. Instead, the "warfare" today is a socially connected force that is driven by the citizen who is equipped to reach other citizens. This is fighting "like David." We cannot go toe-to-toe with Goliath and expect to win. But if we stay mobile and use our grassroots advantages, we can win!

I know what you’re thinking, “They have the Media working with them”, but we also have a Media. This Media I am talking about is GOD and Jesus Christ. We need to ask them for help. Ask them to give us the wisdom, the knowledge and strength to beat the Goliath of our day. Also use you contacts you have in your email, social networks and old fashion pen and paper. Tell them we need to ask GOD for the wisdom, the knowledge and strength to beat this Goliath. For GOD will pervade these things, all we have to do is ask and keep up our faith in Him. We must start now and don’t give up, never, ever give up.
