Israel’s Moral History – Pay Attention USA


John R. Houk

© April 14, 2019

America is a great nation struggling to maintain its greatness largely due a stark ideological divide between Left-Wing and Conservative visions.

 

History illustrates many great nations and (gasp) empires lost their greatness due to moral depreciation. One could probably write a book illustrating the rise and fall of nations related to a people’s declining moral values. Saying it with a large dose of un-academic slang, “I ain’t gonna write that book.”

 

Yet due to the nature of my faith one historical nation/kingdom that should get America’s attention is Israel and later the divided lower half – Judah.

 

Biblically a group of Hebrew slaves found deliverance from Egypt then journeyed to a land Promised to their Hebrew ancestors Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (rechristened Israel). After a period of a sort of confederated Judgeships, the Hebrew tribes united under one King who was Saul. Saul had some moral issues in obedience to God losing his crown which came upon David son of Jesse. David then his son Solomon maintained a unified Israel while alive.

 

David had a moral failure with another man’s wife that resulted in that wife becoming pregnant by David. That led David to set the husband up for a military suicide mission which was essentially murder by proxy. David married the slain husband’s wife Bathsheba. The child conceived in adultery and further tainted by murder was allowed by God to die. David and Bathsheba’s next son would eventually succeed his father David. David looked the other way as some of his older sons entered sinful avenues I won’t go into. BUT for clarity, David always owned up to his choices which God Almighty honored by calling David a man after His own heart.

 

Solomon turned into a ladies’ man by having a thousand wives and concubines of which many were foreign women who maintained their pagan religion violating Commandment number one: “You shall have no other gods before Me.” One might argue Solomon reigned with wisdom yet his marital choices undoubtedly planted the seeds of his descendants drawing away from God rather than near.

 

After Solomon’s death bad character training of the next king in Rehoboam led to Israel dividing into two kingdoms. The ten northern Hebrew tribes became Israel and descended into ungodly paganism to the point God allowed Assyria to conquer and depopulate the ten Hebrew tribes (between the years 734 BC – 724 BC). Often called the lost tribes of Israel now deemed with legends and myths about their lot in history.

 

The two southern Hebrew tribes of Judah and Benjamin formed the Kingdom of Judah that retained the royal lineage of David and Solomon. These descended Kings rippled back and forth kings supporting pagan religions and the faith Jewish heritage which eventually became today’s Judaism. With each pagan king Judah more and reflected what Biblical standards would expose as the moral depravity of the religious practices of pagan religions. God allows the Babylonian captivity (circa 586 BC) of most of Judah’s population especially those that might be called the intelligentsia. There have always been a Jewish people in the Holy Land but only as a remnant after deportations and repatriations. The Babylonian repatriation was a relatively short period after the Captivity. The Jewish repatriation after the Roman expulsion roughly between 70 AD and 135 AD did not occur until after the 1900s AD which accelerated after the WWI and WWII Allied victories resulting in the restoration of the nation of Israel in 1948 AD.

 

America’s history compared to the history of the Jewish people is like an American drip in a Jewish ocean. Nevertheless, the lessons the Jews learned the rough way is an example voting Americans – ESPECIALLY CHRISTIAN AMERICANS – should think deeply about.

 

Inspiring some of that deep thought is Greg Holt looking at how spiritual darkness is creeping over America if not reversed by some light, could lead to destruction for America’s greatness and Christianity’s Liberty.

Spiritual Darkness Destroying America & Church – Book-cover

 

From my forthcoming book:

 

Spiritual Darkness is Destroying America and the Church

 

Colossians 3:23-24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. (KJV)

 

The American people as a nation are at an important crossroads with equally important decisions to make.  The decisions that we make as a nation from here on out will have significant and irrevocable consequences.  This writer hopes that people will wake up from their slumber, and that other people will turn aside from their apathy and indifference.  The decisions made will affect all the people of this nation as a whole, and that includes those who are innocent.

 

We the People have increasingly turned away from our Father, and God is not pleased with this decision.  Without necessary changes to our national attitudes and actions, God will soon abandon us to our own devices and the result will not be pretty.  America is at an historical point, the point where the nation of the United States could literally come to an end, as in cease to exist.  I imagine some will read my words here and immediately dismiss them as ridiculous, reaching the conclusion that I am exaggerating – let me assure the reader, I am not.

 

If one is at all a student of history, one will see that when any and all societies reached the point of godlessness, when immorality ruled the day, when corruption was the norm not the exception, and good people were treated like criminals – this is the point where every single kingdom ever known fell, and was replaced by another.  It happened to the Romans, the Babylonians, the Medes, the Persians, and even to Israel.  The U.S. will be no different.

 

Time is running out for this once great nation.  In some ways we are still great, but in the ways that really matter, well we are not.  If that statement offends you, well you need a large dose of reality.  The U.S. has become a cesspool of immorality and is rapidly becoming strongly anti-God and anti-Christian.  These comments will no doubt upset some of you, and that’s fine, you don’t have to agree with me.  There are still great people in this country, good people that do good things.  However, collectively as a nation we are deeply corrupted and immoral – and most of us have no use for God.

 

Even the churches in this country have become seriously corrupted.  So many have lost their way, straying from the Word of God and embracing ungodly things like homosexuality.  If these churches are not willfully embracing the LGBT agenda, they are at the very least looking the other way and not teaching that it is a serious sin against God either.

 

Please don’t misunderstand what is being said here, these people (LGBT) are not to be mistreated or hated, but rather they should be welcomed into the church and loved by those of us who believe and follow Jesus.  This writer knows that this is a tall order and can be hard to do, but if those (all those) who do not know Christ are not exposed to those who do – how can they be expected to change?  How can they be saved?  At the same time, these people are not to be allowed into any position of authority within the Church until such time as they have repented of their ways and have given themselves fully and completely to Jesus Christ.

 

Far too many do not understand that it is of paramount importance – the Gospel message of Jesus Christ must not be changed, it must not be cheapened and added on to, or taken away from.  What the Bible proclaimed 2000 years ago, we need to proudly stand and proclaim that very same message today.  The Gospel is not a cheap suit to be taken off and exchanged with another one at will.  Jesus is the same yesterday, today and always – and so is His Gospel message.  It is unalterable, and unchanging, and its message remains the same.

 

This cannot be stressed enough, the Gospel of Jesus Christ absolutely must not be changed.  If the Words of Christ offend you, change your opinion.  If you think the Gospel must be changed for the times, you are deluded.  If your thought is that the Gospel must be watered down in order to be more attractive to unbelievers, you are an idiot.  We are here talking about the very words of God!  Not the mere inconsequential words of man who is here today and gone tomorrow.  There will be a swift and severe penalty for those that change the Word of Christ.

 

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.(KJV)

 

All of those in the Church must make a decision and make it soon, to follow the true and Living God, or to follow their own interpretation of God – which is no god at all.  There is only One God, and He is the God of the Bible, not the fake god so many churches of today worship in vain.  Just as all Scripture was given by divine inspiration – so too our perception of, and belief in God must be defined by the Word of God, and not by any man’s liberal interpretation of the Bible.

 

There is of course resistance to the idea (even within the Church) that the Bible absolutely must drive our beliefs and our values, meaning that our worldview is determined by the Bible and its teachings.  Some say that the Bible was written by men (this includes people in the Church) without divine inspiration and is therefore fallible.  Others will say that the Bible is outdated to our present time period. Yet others will say that there is no way to know which version of the Bible is authentic.

 

To this utter nonsense I will reply:

 

Does anyone who has any belief in God truly think that God was and is not perfectly capable of preserving His Word to us no matter how long ago it was written?  The very idea that the God who created the entire universe and created man out of the dust of the Earth – that this God is not capable of preserving His Words to us, is entirely laughable.  This is not a god I would follow, if this supposed god can’t even preserve his own written words to us – how is this god going to follow through on the rest of what he promised, such as eternal life with him in Heaven?  No, the God I follow has preserved His Word and He keeps His promises – guaranteed.

Censorship Imperils Liberty


Justin Smith has become a voice that many Conservatives listen to attentively, I know that I do. The American Left and Globalist Left for that matter, have become so rabid in their Liberty erasing utopian fantasies they are openly becoming violent against Conservatives. After you read this essay from Justin you might just get stirred up to defend your Liberty and nation. You will learn that ongoing Internet censorship is reaching far beyond your keyboard or mobile phone. The dark evil specter of global Communism is turning classic science fiction warnings of Big Brother into modern reality.

Censorship Imperils Liberty  

Truth’s Dark Death

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 4/7/2019 8:34 PM

 

America cannot allow lies to push truth to a dark death.

 

Disturbing postmodern relativistic, postcolonial and social justice theories, tripe and nonsense that looks for victims under every rock has been advocated over the past four decades; and we must unequivocally reject this nonsense, in favor of the honest to God truth, since we already see destabilizing hyperreality, fallacy, propaganda, political correctness and outright Gestapo tactics used to erase our American heritage, our traditions, and our culture, in nothing less than a despicable attack on our freedom and liberty. Too many are too willing to use every deception and even any flagitious means to usher in the Democratic Party vision of an authoritarian Marxist Socialist state for America and eradicate our republic.

 

Truth is in short supply everywhere one looks today, whether one speaks of Great Britain, China or even America. The communists and globalists, the proponents of a “New World Order” are on the rise, and they are targeting and controlling the people of the world through the internet, an array of high-handed arbitrary laws and even through tyrannical hate-speech “laws” that are not anything resembling legitimate law, since by their very nature they violate a person’s human and God-given Right to speak freely on anything that crosses his mind.

 

Great Britain and most of the European Union implement hate-speech laws against their own citizens, that are modeled after United Nations Resolution 16/18 and criminalize any criticism against Islam. This is the very resolution that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conspired together to attempt to get passed in the United States Senate back on December 26th 2012 in New York City, despite its clear antithetical position to the First Amendment.

 

[Blog Editor: I ran out of time trying to locate info for the date 12/26/12 pertaining to the OIC, Crooked Hillary & the Senate trying to criminalize criticism of Islam. BUT there are plenty of references to Crooked Hillary working with OIC to get the USA on board for such criminalization. Here are three references among many:

 

 

 

 

In May of last year, the patriotic leaders of Britain First, Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen, were arrested for distributing leaflets warning of the existential threat of Islam to all countries, during a rape trial at the Canterbury Crown Court, that culminated in the convictions of four Muslim men. Golding and Fransen were charged with religiously-aggravated harassment and convicted in the Folkestone Magistrates’ Court. Golding was sentenced to four and a half months in prison, and Fransen received an even more egregious sentence of nine months. And all of this came from voicing factual evidence and truths concerning Islam and their honest and true convictions on the matter.

 

Judge Justin Barron, an obvious illiberal communist activist judge similar to many here in the U.S. courts, had a hard bias against them. What should be free speech is frowned upon in the United Kingdom, as Barron declared that Golding and Fransen had a “joint intention to use the facts of the case for their own political ends“. And so? No matter was it to him that their statements were true.

 

In Communist China, the situation is even worse. The Great Firewall of China has for many long years blocked access to any information regarding the millions of victims of the mass-murdering dictatorship. Even the pro-censorship American tech giants, some similar to Apple who have largely agreed to Beijing’s censorship demands, have been mostly blocked from China. And as though it wished to prove its hostility to internet freedom and free speech, the UN placed an actual Chinese Communist agent, who claims censorship is in the eye of the beholder, as the head of the UN International Telecommunications Union; and, as surreal as it is, this is the agency slated for assuming the role of the world internet regulator and censor.

 

The world watches a program straight from Big Brother emerging from its infancy. By 2020, the system will become the Social Credit System (SCS), and it will be owned and operated entirely by the Chinese Communist State. The SCS will monitor purchases, hobbies, lifestyle and even who one socializes with on any regular basis. It will note how many children one has, how well one does one’s job and all the items necessary to be a model citizen, just as it will watch those who drink too much or speak ill of the government or its leaders. It will watch every citizen, and one’s credit score will be based on how well one aligns their thoughts and actions with the Chinese Communist Party line.

 

Four years ago, a Zhong Pei, a sixteen year old student, tried to board a train and was refused a ticket. She was also refused enrollment in her classes at her university, because she had committed the heinous crime of being her father’s daughter, and the daughter of a man who had died in an automobile accident that had killed two other people. This was enough for the Chinese government to blacklist her as “dishonest”.

 

Think about it. China’s system started with similar business models found in Alibaba and Tencent.

 

In the United States the databases, digital surveillance, national credit score system, systems of reward and punishment, government-knows-best attitude, electronic purchasing data and ubiquitous social media networks already exist. America has Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon that all monitor what you read, see, say, search and buy.  One’s android or iPhone already tracks everyone who uses such devices hundreds of times daily. And that information is already being used for complete censorship in America.

 

The threat of internet censorship at the national and global level is real, especially since Obama surrendered control over key internet infrastructure to globalist “stakeholders” unimpeded by the United States’ Constitutional First Amendment protecting Free Speech; and, with the United Nations actively campaigning for censorship worldwide, Internet Freedom has never been in more grave peril. If the Orwellian trend continues, it will only be a matter of a few years before the world-wide internet web, even in America, famous and admired around the world for Her absolutist free speech protections and rights enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, will be facing full-blown and outright censorship at the hands of a rogue alliance of governments, dictators, international institutions, and their Big Business cronies.

 

For decades now, America has suffered Her Marxist and multicultural FOOLS and all the debilitating thought processes that accompany them. They deny objective Truth, in their advocacy of relativism, that views ethics and morals as relative to the individual and his culture, so there is no such thing as Good and Evil — no such thing as Right and Wrong. Facts no longer exist for these Communist FOOLS, only feelings and interpretations and the crime of offending someone. Heaven forbid anyone is offended in today’s politically correct world.

 

Through cultural relativism our children in America are taught to hate our past use of slavery and its inherent racist code, but they are not allowed to learn about or criticize contemporary racism and slavery in Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and even the dark recesses of some of America’s own neighborhoods in New York and Dearborn, Michigan and New Mexico and elsewhere. They are taught we must accept a multicultural society where diversity is thought to be a virtue, even as it erodes the very fabric of our society and births massive segments of anti-American populations as viewed in modern day Minneapolis and the hundreds of thousands of Somalian Muslims who ’til this very day give more allegiance to Islam and ISIS than they do America — even as it moves the nation towards a rebuilding of the land of Babble, with multiple codes of law, including Sharia Law and the harshest codes on earth, creating an immoral plane that forbids contrary behaviors to anything the government decrees legal, whether it is polygamy, homosexual unions, transgender fluidity and gender equality. At every turn, all the good and decent morals and virtues and principles that made America so EXCEPTIONAL will be ridiculed, defamed, trashed and ultimately abrogated and destroyed. [Blog Editor: A great academic critique of cultural relativism: Critiquing Cultural Relativism; By Jaret Kanarek; The Intellectual Standard, PDF Volume 2 | Issue 2 – Article 1; 2013]

 

Each day something seems to offend someone in America because it is deemed “racist” or “culturally insensitive”. And this is enough to move to have the offender removed from the public square, to be banished for an indeterminate period, sometimes forever.

 

These erroneous societal movements are only serving the further destruction of the nation, just as demanded by the agendas of the communists, socialists, Muslims, globalists and proponents of the New World Order. Allowing the fallacies of social justice theory that reveal a world of oppressors and victims only ensures America’s demise. Males are shown as oppressors and females are victims; whites are oppressors and people of color are victims; heterosexuals [h]ate oppressors and homosexuals and transgendered are victims; Christians are oppressors and Muslims are victims. Teaching our sons and daughters this BULLS**T simply ensures the nation descends into its own particular brand of HELL designed and facilitated by the enemies from within, the enemies of America and the enemies of Liberty.

 

Recently, Mark Twain’s ‘Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’ has been marked as too controversial to be read in America’s schools, due to the use of racial slurs by the book’s bad guys, which delivered properly would serve as a good lesson against racism. But educators want us to raise a nation of wimps, so we must avoid “(causing) students to feel upset” at all costs.

 

‘Mary Poppins’ and ‘The Lion King’ are both apparently too racist to place before any student. The New York Times accuses Mary Poppins of “shamelessly flirting” with blackface because she has soot on her face, while dancing in the 1964 movie adaption of the book. The Lion King is demeaned as “racist” because Africa is supposedly “depicted as one big animal reserve” and no human characters are shown.

 

Even the once esteemed University of Notre Dame has jumped on the Communist politically correct bandwagon, as it seeks to further the Democratic Party Communist agenda and attack our American Heritage for America’s sins of the past, just one more move to coddle overly-sensitive students. As the university covered its murals of Christopher Columbus, due to his alleged “atrocities against the native people” and his discovery of America that “sparked centuries of transatlantic colonization”, Notre Dame president John Jenkins said that the murals were “demeaning” to the “indigenous peoples.” Outraged students called this a decision to “coddle (Notre Dame’s) students by shielding them from a painting of an important figure in world history.”

 

According to the New Communist, the Western World and the principles of freedom and liberty it birthed, especially America’s society, are societies filled with evil and responsible for all the evil in the wider world. British imperialism is blamed for the specific foibles and problems associated with what are in fact indigenous cultural norms, such as the South Asian caste system and the African tribal system. So too, the corruption and backwardness found in former colonies of European powers and America are blamed on Western imperialism. No matter the great acts of sacrifice the American people have committed to save entire sections of the world, our nation remains the focus of anti-imperialism and a target of people and groups who at this very moment seek Her destruction.

 

The New Communists present America’s sins as something unique to the United States of America. They conveniently ignore contemporary empires, such as the Arab Islamic Empire that conquered all of the Middle East, North Africa, southern Europe, Persia, Central Asia and northern India, occupying them minimally for hundreds of years — occupying the Middle East and North Africa for 1400 years and still to this day. The New Communists also conveniently ignore the ethnic cleansing committed by the Han Chinese under the Communists, when they invaded Inner Mongolia to the north, Chinese Turkestan to the west and Tibet to the south.

 

Today, even more surreal and astounding, the United Nations is even demanding censorship in America. Following the violence in Charlottesville, the UN released a torrential flood of press releases, statements, warnings and condemnations that demanded action from the U.S. government against “hate speech”, even though “hate speech” is founded on a bogus Marxist narrative utilized by the apparatchiks and the Cheka of the mass-murdering hate regime enslaving the Soviet Union to ban speech they did not like. Aside from this, the U.S. Constitution specifically prohibits any government restrictions on speech, hateful or otherwise; however, if one needs any more evidence of the existential threat looming over the entire Free World and the stark danger at hand, take a quick look at Europe, where pastors are literally thrown in jail for defending their testimony as a Christian and spreading the Gospel and the “crime” of offending any nearby Muslim and where politicians are arrested for quoting Winston Churchill’s assessment of Islam, and the facts are sufficient to firmly and convincingly drive the point home.

 

[Three Examples:

 

 

 

 

All good and decent American Patriots — conservatives, Christians, libertarians and all others who love freedom and liberty — must realize that the Orwellian nightmare enforced by private hands is just as harmful to human freedom as if the dystopia was enforced by the hands of Soviet-style commissars. The results are the same. Freedom of expression is being sacrificed to the God of political correctness. In a world where digital lynch mobs can ruin people’s entire lives — harming their reputations, as was done to Alex Jones and his ‘InfoWars‘ network and later to Roger Stone, making it impossible to feed their families and potentially subjecting them to retaliatory violence, as seen in the attacks on Trump supporters wearing “MAGA” caps —  for merely expressing an honest opinion amounts to an extremely dark age for liberty.

 

Life sure isn’t going to get any easier for any of Us, not if the red, radical Democratic Party Communist rat bastards have their way about it, as they continue with their politically correct pushes, their internet controls, their postmodern relativism and their multiculturalism that attacks the truth of any issue on any given day, and all of this is done in the name of equality, freedom and social justice; in truth, it is a propagandists’ movement focused on ending freedom and liberty in Our Beloved America, the exact opposite of the things they purport to support.

 

Big Brother is now moving to become judge, jury and executioner, and this does not bode well for the average person in America, or anywhere else in the world, except for the small handful of global oligarchs and so-called “elites”. All Americans must stand together in order to defeat this ever burgeoning Orwellian surveillance Deep State, before all of our Liberty and our God-given Rights are lost and suppressed forever.

 

Fight for the Freedom of All. Fight for Our God-Given Rights. Fight for LIBERTY.

Conservatives Release Open Letter to the News Media: Avoid Imploding


The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is being outed as the evil corrupt Leftist organization. The Mainstream Media (MSM) has been using the SPLC as a credible source for information and data for quite some time. Sixty-Seven Conservative leaders have written an open letter to the MSM for sourcing with the SPLC.

Conservatives Release Open Letter to the News Media: Avoid Imploding Southern Poverty Law Center

 

Sent via Christian Newswire

Sent by Family Research Council

Email Sent April 3, 2019 2:26 PM

 

WASHINGTON, April 3, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ — Family Research Council (FRC) today joined a coalition of 67 conservative leaders and organizations in releasing an open letter to news organizations, calling on the media to stop using data from the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) which has been exposed from within as having a culture of long-standing, long-ignored racial discrimination and sexual harassment. The unraveling scandal has so far claimed the organization’s founder, its president, and a top attorney.

The letter reads in part:

 

“In September 2017, a group similar to the one signing below wrote a public letter to warn the news media about the untrustworthy and corrupt nature of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). We suggested then that you refrain from using the SPLC as a source. Some news organizations and individuals became more circumspect about the SPLC, but, unfortunately, some did not. That said, 2017 and 2018 produced several publications marking the beginning of a much-needed reassessment of the SPLC’s self-appointed standing as America’s arbiter of ‘hate.’

“The SPLC’s ability to deflect and parry seems to have ended with its March 13 firing of Morris Dees, its co-founder and leader for almost five decades. Dees’ termination was accompanied by a terse, opaque pronouncement…Dees’ firing was not the only shoe to drop. Within ten days both the president, Richard Cohen, and the legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, had left the SPLC.

“In response to this inner upheaval, Morris Dees was fired unceremoniously. Next, the management hired Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, attorney Tina Tchen, to investigate its workplace culture. This choice raises serious concerns about the neutrality of the investigation. And the choice appears particularly problematic given Tchen recently making headlines for interfering with the Chicago Police Department’s Jussie Smollett investigation.

“If SPLC is interested in restoring its lost credibility with the public and remaining SPLC staff, an SPLC-initiated investigation should include…a responsible investigator to examine the various news reports over the years that have pointed to deep flaws in the SPLC and publicly lay out who within the Center knew what and when about these work conditions.

“It (SPLC) attacks anyone who disagrees with its far-left agenda, smearing them with lies and grossly mischaracterizing their work. All the while SPLC has also been imploding from within, with allegations of sex and race discrimination – which have hounded them for years – finally boiling over with the firing of Dees and the resignation of Cohen.

“SPLC has lost all credibility. We call on all media, corporations, social media companies, and financial institutions to immediately stop relying on their discredited and partisan ‘hate’ and ‘extremist’ lists.”

Minnesota’s Muslim AG may get opportunity to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws on ‘remnant of patriots’


Hmm… When you read this story about the potential Free Speech restriction that might soon be coming to the State of Minnesota, you should be thinking (unless thinking becomes a thought crime too) – WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE MINNESOTA VOTERS (94% non-Muslim demographically) THINKING electing a Muslim (Keith Ellison – a supporter of CAIR [Profiles: Canary Mission, IPT & Anti-CAIR] which supports Hamas Islamic terrorism) as an Attorney General that will support Sharia Free Speech restrictions?

In shockingly Orwellian fashion, Democrats in Minnesota want to create a statewide “Task Force on Islamophobia and Anti-Semitism” that would be stacked with people devoted to Islamic doctrines calling for more anti-Semitism.

Taken in light of other recent developments in Minnesota, all signs point to a coming crackdown on free speech, say conservatives in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

“It’s putting the wolves in the henhouse,” said Minneapolis resident Debra Anderson. “It’s very scary what they are trying to do. They want to stop, want to intimidate the remnant of patriots we have in Minnesota.”

Intro to Justin’s Thoughts on ‘No Apologies’


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

© March 9, 2019

On Thursday (3/7/19) the House dominated by Dems passed an anti-Hate-Speech Resolution. A Resolution is not a binding law which is good because I doubt the Resolution would pass First Amendment muster.

 

The story behind the Resolution was the Antisemitism openly displayed by new House members – both Dems – both Muslims – have both been caught openly displaying Jew-hatred speech. It appears Ilhan Omar was the most egregious, but Rashida Tlaib has had her share of Antisemitism as well.

 

When the Dems were called out on their members’ Antisemitism, they ended up protecting Omar and Tlaib by a watered down Resolution – 030719 aimed at labeling criticism of Islam as Hate-Speech. And although I couldn’t find specific mention of labeling criticism of the ungodly LGBTQ lifestyle as hate, I suspect some Humanist/Multiculturalist would such criticism the Resolution’s use of the word “bigotry”.

 

Condemning anti-Semitism as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values and aspirations that define the people of the United States and condemning anti-Muslim discrimination and bigotry against minorities as hateful expressions of intolerance that are contrary to the values and aspirations of the United States. (Resolution – 030719. With elaboration of what constitutes Hate-Speech.)

 

I found a Justin Smith post on his Facebook page that illustrates the same ire I felt in realizing where this Hate-Speech Resolution could lead. Now I don’t know if Justin’s passion for Free Speech has something to with Resolution – 030719 or some other situation, but in my opinion it applies.

No Apologies for Free-Speech Truth

 

By Justin Smith

March 8, 2019 7:07 PM

 

No apologies should ever be made for hating something, because certain people, activities and ideologies have full well earned any hatred directed towards them. The term “hate-speech” is the Progressive Democrats’/Communists’ catch-phrase assault on the Truth, when the Truth exposes one of their nefarious agendas or allies. And I hate with a passion, and I love with a passion, as is my God-given right to think as I believe and feel about issues as I choose. It is a part of all human psyche to hate and to love, as well as to experience anger and joy. No thought police will ever keep me from speaking my mind through their own hypocrisy in the use of the term “hate-speech”!

 

This definition is from ‘Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary’ (1977):

 

hate 1a: intense hostility and aversion usually from fear, anger or a sense of injury

 

2a: extreme dislike or antipathy. I fear very little, so my hatred stems from anger, a sense of injury and an extreme dislike. The poet Maya Angelou shouts: “Be angry. It is right to be angry. It is healthy.”

 

Do I hate?…Damn straight I hate!

 

Psalms 97:10: You who love the Lord hate evil!

 

I hate the small-minded miniature Joe Stalins of the Democratic Party and their Muslim allies within their party, such as Representative Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who in turn have shared their own hatred of this America I love so well.

 

I loathe those Muslims and Muslim sympathizers who advocate the spread of Sharia Law across the entire U.S., such as Dalia Mogahed (Advisor to Pres. Obama) and Harold Koh (Head of Obama’s Legal Counsel-U.S. State Dept.). Sharia Law is evil; Islam is not a religion, because it has little to do with God and primarily promotes Mohammed’s doctrines and policies.

 

Psalms 119:104: I gain understanding from Your precepts; therefore I hate every false way.

 

Islam and its Sharia Law doctrines represent an ideology diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution and are the enemy to America and freedom. And yet, Muslims live in the heart of America, for the most part and until just the past few years, without having their differences questioned, without checking their bad intentions, and without being penalized for their sullen fanaticism.

 

The Progressives, Muslims and Communists of the world can mock Christianity, the Virgin Mary or Jesus and nobody touches their right of thought or expression, but if myself or Pete Doughtie or anyone else simply states facts concerning Islam. the Koran and the Prophet Mohammed, we are called bigots, xenophobes and racists. Progressive Democrats/Communists and Code Pink can yell anti-American slogans, call our soldiers “murderers” and “baby-killers”, fly the Mexican or any other nationality flag over the U.S. flag or even burn our beloved American flag and nothing happens; but if anyone does the identical thing against Islam, all Hell breaks loose! This conflict is ideological and has no racial quality whatsoever.

 

If we can condone Islamofascism and Sharia Law within the U.S. in the name of broadmindedness, understanding and pluralism, why did we fight Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin? Why did we organize the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba? Why did we go to Korea and Vietnam? Why does the U.S. send soldiers, such as Seal Team Six, to kill and die in wars declared against the enemies of freedom, of democracy and of civilization? Are these principles valid in certain cases only, with certain nations only? Aren’t Islamic tyrannies as unacceptable as the communist and fascist ones? I’ve had enough of this Leftist duplicity, ambiguity and hypocrisy! I am a free spirit, a free individual, and I refuse any form of tyranny such as Islamic Sharia; I refuse to listen to the clamor for the Theocratic State.

 

The Leftists and the Muslim sympathizers would exterminate the right of dissent within our representative democratic Republic. They would see us punished and our admonishments against Islam made criminal, just as the case in Europe, where we witnessed numerous notable people, such as Brigitte Bardot and Geert Wilders, prosecuted for “hate-speech” against Muslims. They would silence America’s children, hand them to the enemy and abandon them to a minority that swaggers and blackmails as it re-establishes heresy and burns the free minds on the stake. They would build a non-democracy…a deceit…a lie!

 

Upon their death, I full well suspect that all Progressive Democrat/Communists will plunge headlong into Hell and down Lucifer’s throat due to multiple un-repented sins, but especially their intellectual terrorism. They presume and assume to hold the Truth in a dogmatic manner; if you do not think as they do, you are an idiot and an outcast. And now, Hollywood, public education, university professors and pseudo-intellectuals have poisoned the minds of two generations, as they work on the third. Let’s state facts. The mendacious pacifists who disseminate the most obtuse illiberalism and the most bullying fascism were spawned by the Left; anti-Americanism originated with the Democratic Party, and now they are engaging in an even more despicable sin, as they foster Islamism and Sharia Law in America!

 

What kind of freedom would allow us to be invaded or muzzled or prevented from thinking, speaking or rebelling? What kind of freedom would allow Americans to live in fear of being prosecuted and convicted as criminals for the fiction of “hate-speech”? What kind of freedom seeks to censor my thoughts and feelings, to decide whom I must love and whom I must hate, so that if I hate my country and my fellow Americans I go to Heaven and if I hate Muslims I go to Hell? A non-freedom, I say…a mockery…a farce!

 

Like love, hate belongs to human nature…to Life…and cannot be forbidden by some article of some penal code. It can be judged, adversed or condemned, but only on a moral basis. I have the right to love whom I want, and I also have the right to hate whom I want. Let’s start with those who hate me. Yes, I hate the Bin Ladens, the Zawahiris and the kamikazes and suicide bombers who blow our people up; I do hate the bastards who smear the facades of churches and urinate on them. I do hate the Michael Moores, the Ward Churchills, the Noam Chomskys, the George Soroses, Cloward and Pivens, the Barack Obamas, their accomplices and the domestic traitors who sell us to the enemy. I do hate them as much as I hate the Ayatollah Khomeini, Putin, Ahmadinejad, Hu and Chavez. I hate them as I always hated any murder of Freedom. It is my sacrosanct right…my sacrosanct duty.

 

John 8:32: You will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.

 

Millions of American patriots, such as myself, Pete Doughtie, Kevin Fisher, Lou Ann Zelenik, Rebecca Bynum, Pam King, Sam Solomon, Bill Warner, Jerry Gordon, Frank Gaffney and Bill Ketron, have led the battle against the introduction of Sharia Law and Islamofascism within the U.S. through the use of honest facts. All of us are fulfilling a very difficult, a very grievous duty…the duty of speaking the Truth. And in speaking the Truth, giving voice to the voiceless!

Embrace In God We Trust


Justin posted his thoughts on the centrality of what has made America great. I say “thoughts” rather than “essay” because the post is remarkably short. I use the thought “remarkable” because though short, a little self-thought of Justin’s content (and this Editor’s awesome source linking — 😉) should turn you into some form of activist to keep America great.

 

Centrality spoiler alert: God Almighty was and so is or must continue to be, is the reason for an exceptional America.

Embrace In God We Trust

Firmly Believe that America has a Purpose

 

By Justin Smith

Posted March 6, 2019 1:55 PM

Facebook Group:  Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists

 

In the beginning, we embraced In God We Trust. But we’ve allowed ourselves to become distracted bythe worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things.” Not only has our nation been on a lengthy path of turning away from God, due to half the nation forgetting our purpose, Conservatives and Christians have allowed this course due to their own apathy, complacency and fatalistic acceptance.

 

I firmly believe that America has a purpose. The purpose of leading the world toward what’s good, but we can’t fulfill that purpose so long as half the nation sides with Evil and Satan and every deceit, deception, perversion and deviancy that goes against God and the Word.

 

One need not be Christian to follow its commandments as a simple and effective way to lead a good, clean life and understand that by so doing, all society reaps the benefit.

 

But for one’s own salvation, one should consider following the TRUTH as offered by Our Lord And Savior Jesus Christ and accept His Salvation and one’s redemption.

 

We can still be the beacon of hope for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for the world, if only all America returns to Her Founding Principles and the Original Intent of the Founders to create the most Liberty for all Americans, if only America returns to God and a truly moral society.

 

Maybe it will take a miracle to get there. We sure need one right now.

 

Otherwise, the course we’re on is taking us straight over the cliff and headlong into an abyss of massive civil strife and the high likelihood of civil war.

 

Pray for each other and Your Families and Pray for Our Beloved America.

A Right Granted Us By God


One of my biggest concerns about America today is the erosion of Liberty envisioned by the Founding Fathers. This erosion is being exacted by the American Left dedicated to transforming the USA into a State controlled socio-political culturally humanist paradigm. This means the termination of Religious Liberty, Free Speech, Free Thought and the Right to Self-Defense that America has experienced largely thanks to the political institutions set into motion by America’s Founders.

 

In this editorial Justin Smith looks inalienable Right to self-defense that exists not because of a man-made document, but rather exists by the Will of God.

A Right Granted Us By God

Gun Control Laws Are Illegitimate

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/25/2019 8:47 PM

 

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.” ~ Cesare Beccaria, 18th Century Italian jurist

 

American culture and this society have become so pusillanimous, that they have incredibly fought to tamp down and suppress the God-given right to the lawful act of self-defense and bearing arms to properly defend one’s person, family and property. More often we see both Democrats and so-called Republicans urging some manner of control over people already doing everything right, with the Democrats offering the harshest measures. It is as if they somehow imagine that limiting law-abiding citizens’ right to keep and bear arms will stop criminals and gun violence, which is akin to cutting the horns off a water buffalo as an answer to lion attacks.

 

Not the federal government, not the state governments, not any majority group of voters and certainly not any government official, elected or otherwise … none of the aforementioned have any legal authority to impede or infringe upon anyone’s God-given right to keep and bear arms, by any means or any measure or any arbitrary “rule” they color with the illegitimate use of the word “law”. A right granted Us by God as seen through Natural Law cannot be legislated out of existence.

 

[Blog Editor: On a personal I lean to the belief in the existence of Natural Law: viz., Law originating from God. But in full disclosure concepts of Natural Law and Natural Rights philosophically have a bit of controversy. So here are some titles to stretch your mind – perhaps you can locate yourself:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

America currently has numerous states from California to Hawaii, Illinois and Vermont to Washington, New Jersey, Florida and Oregon trying to limit their citizens’ right to bear any weapon of the same sophistication as the U.S. military carries. Normally reticent as I am to quote the Supreme Court, as an example, due to its judicial activism, it is important to note that even the Court held this to be a God-given right that pre-exists government and the Constitution, in the majority ruling on Heller v. District of Columbia 2008. [Blog Editor: Bill of Rights Institute summary]

 

And yet, one more of the most egregious gun “laws” has just reared its ugly head in Ohio, without any more understanding of the Constitution than other pieces of legislation that have done nothing in L.A., New York or Chicago to stop gun violence.

 

Ohio House Bill 228 [PDF download] passed in December 2018, and it was largely intended to clarify when shooting someone in self-defense is legally justified; however, due to a HUGE drafting ERROR by the Legislative Services Commission and a misplaced provision regarding the Mossberg Shockwave shotgun, thousands of people will be turned into instant criminals overnight when this bill takes effect on March 28th 2019.

 

Dean Rieck, head of Buckeye Firearms Association, had worked closely with legislators on this legislation. He observed that many bills were flying about at the time, with Democrats firing off their own amendments and lobbyists and protesters adding to the chaos. The confusion of the day made an environment ripe for human error.

 

While everyone involved is saying this was an “honest mistake”, it is highly suspect that it occurred during a lame-duck session of the state legislature. Even more suspect, the error wasn’t caught, until after the bill was passed. This just shows how incompetent or devious leaders of the day can be.

 

Who were the proofreaders? Who signed off on the final draft?

 

Don’t lawmakers read a damn bill these days, before signing it? Obviously or conveniently not.

 

On March 28th 2019, any firearm of at least twenty-six inches and approved for sale by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms under the Gun Control Act of 1968, that is somehow not regulated under the National Firearm Act (NFA) of 1934, will be classified as “dangerous ordnance”. This turns an AR15, a thumbhole stock rifle, flash suppressors and other cosmetic features into dangerous ordnance and a felony to possess.

 

I submit that even a tax on firearms is illegal and unconstitutional, since it too carries an impediment of sorts to owning weapons. And here one must note, the NFA was held to be constitutional as a tax revenue measure. No entity has ever stated the federal government, or any government, has the power and authority to ban firearms of any type; this also is equally applicable to ammunition.

 

Many citizen groups and activist leaders, such as Jeremy Deter, have joined in protests, that forced the legislators to take heed and move for an immediate emergency fix, after initially stating they would have to wait 90 days before they could do anything. The Ohio State Legislature met on February 19th to enter a fix, at the urging of Senator Kristina Daley Roegner, who took a stand for the citizen groups, who introduced Bill 53. And predictably so, Democrats are now pushing back against any fix, as they contend no damage to firearms owners’ rights will result from Bill 228 as written, despite proof to the contrary.

 

Regardless of just how much damage it will or won’t do, without the proper correction to the error, the new “law” will be UnConstitutional as written, anyway one wishes to view it.

 

One option is to fix the error in the state budget, which will be introduced March 15th and passed into law on July 1st. This delay was called “unacceptable” by Chris Dorr, director of Ohio Gun Owners.

 

Senator Cecil Thomas, a retired police officer and a Cincinnati Democrat, noted that this all results from rushing through legislation in a lame duck session. Thomas said, “It’s just a bad way of doing business now, and mistakes are made …”.

 

Addressing the legislators, Eva Silvers, an advocate for the Second Amendment, called the law “unconstitutional” and exclaimed: “You took a constitutional oath to protect the people of this country. Will you enforce an unconstitutional law?”

 

Understanding the gun-grabbers will do everything in their power to keep this egregious “law” on Ohio’s books, calls have one out across the nation to meet on March 28th in an armed protest at the State Capitol Building. Ohio is currently an “open carry” state, and the reason for having the protest the day after the bad law goes into effect, is to show it is an unenforceable law. But, they are also getting county sheriffs on their side, who have already acknowledged they do not plan to enforce it as it stands, and if the fix is passed in the meantime, everybody will still meet on the State Capitol steps in Columbus, in celebration.

 

The Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The Second Amendment helps Americans defend and protect Our Life and Liberty, and that makes me happy.

 

All patriotic freedom-minded Americans must rush to the aid of their countrymen in Ohio and any and all the other states and stand firm, tough and ready in the face of illegitimate and illegal legislation, by way of all manner of protest and petition.

 

Wherever Our God-given Rights, the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment are under heavy assaults by those who seek not to govern, over a sovereign nation of Free Born Americans, as their fellow patriot and brother in Liberty, seeking instead to rule as their lord and master, in a manner that reduces all to serfs of the state, We cannot allow it — We must not allow it, for it bears the name “tyranny”, and it will not reign over my children, their children and their children’s children, so long as there remains breath in my body, a rifle in my hand.

 

“The right to bear arms has always been the distinctive privilege of freemen. Aside from any necessity of self-protection to the person, it represents among all nations power coupled with the exercise of a certain jurisdiction. … It was not necessary that the right to bear arms should be granted in the Constitution, for it had always existed.” ~ John Ordronaux, Constitutional Legislation in the United States 241-242 (1891)
