Dajjal posted a comment to the post “Dems Betraying America – It will be Stopped One Way or Another” on the NCCR blog dated 12/11/14. The post with that title was really some thoughts on a post by Danny Jeffrey entitled “Thirty Pieces of Silver” originally placed on Danny’s blog Fix Bayonets.

 

This probably an injustice to Danny’s post: The Thirty Pieces of Silver post’s theme is that American politics has become too corrupted by fringe Left Democrats to return to the principles of the vision of the Founding Fathers. That irreversible political situation is made worse because the Establishment Republicans have colluded (wittingly or unwittingly) with the Dems that threaten the U.S. Constitution. Danny views America’s last hope is no-compromise Conservative Senator Ted Cruz. However, it is too late for Cruz too effect any change because the GOP Establishment will do everything to prevent a Cruz election as President.

 

Since not even a great Conservative as Senator Cruz can undo Leftist damage America is only left with one option to rid the Republic established in the USA. That option is for a coup d’état ridding America of Leftist leadership authority.

 

In my post “Dems Betraying America” I concurred with Danny that a coup might indeed occur; however I refused to believe a grassroots movement either among Conservatives taking over the Republican Party on a County by County and State by State manner could lead to Constitutional changes that could reverse Dem damage to what has made America exceptional.

 

As you will read Dajjal totally disagrees that a coup will occur in the USA.

A Risen Conservatism will End RINOs & Dem Damage

Reblogged this on Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back and commented:

While I acknowledge the validity of the pessimism expressed in the citations below [Blog Editor: I am guessing both my view and Danny’s], I absolutely reject suggestions of military coups & violent revolutions. The officer corps has been purged of patriots and the armed forces have superior organization and fire power. Abandon those damn fool dreams entirely.

Barry Morris Goldwater was nominated in ’64 because the party base recognized the truth and intrinsic merit of his platform. He won in the face of total opposition from the establishment. He lost the general election because the party establishment abandoned him.

 

Ronald Reagan was nominated and won because the electorate recognized the truth and intrinsic merit of his platform and the ‘crats re-nominated an accursed traitor who hurt this nation immensely. The nomination of George H.W. Bush was a fatal flaw, an abandonment of principle in favor of expediency. We must learn from that error so that we never repeat it.

 

If it is not too late, it soon will be. Discover the election schedule and run a full slate of Conservatives for GOP precinct delegates. Run a Conservative slate for delegates to the state convention. Nominate Conservatives to the RNC and retake control of the party.

Pick one principled, articulate, aggressive Conservative such as Ted Cruz and back him to the hilt. Organize and motivate voters in the early primaries and caucuses. Tell the nattering nabobs of negativism who preach lifting the ‘crat’s tail and inserting our tongues to go to Hell and be damned. Plug your ears to the siren song of “the only one who can win”.

 

The prospective nominee must build an organization capable of selecting able minded and willing Conservative nominees for all open House & Senate seats and build a Conservative slate. Every RINO who voted for cloture on Obama Don’t Care and other damaging acts of Obamination must have principled, articulate and aggressive primary opposition.

Learn the forgotten lesson of ’80 – victory is not absolute and final. Every election cycle must be hotly contested. RINOs & LibTurds must be replaced with Conservatives. Conservative principles must be clearly expressed and successfully marketed. Balkanization & identity politics must be rejected. The price of Liberty is eternal vigilance: we can never go back to sleep.

Palin vs. Boehner – Who do YOU Agree With?


Sarah Palin - John Boehner

John R. Houk

© July 10, 2014

 

Yesterday I posted about and whole heartedly agreed with Sarah Palin’s July 8 Breitbart Op-Ed column calling for President Barack Hussein Obama’s impeachment. Today I learned Palin stood by her Op-Ed by appearing on Hannity defending her impeachment call against Obama.

July 8, 2014 – (Fox News) – Sean Hannity Interviews Sarah Palin – Time to Impeach Obama Now! —— Sarah Palin joined Sean Hannity tonight to explain why she’s now calling for President Obama’s impeachment; namely, she’s tired of the president’s lawlessness and use of executive power, and the Republicans can’t just “bring a lawsuit to a gunfight,” they need to “halt an imperial presidency.”

Palin argued that Obama is becoming an imperial president who’s “lying to the American people” that needs to be reined in. She dismissed the idea this would be a losing issue for Republicans and, in fact, argued that the impeachment of the president is a bipartisan issue that plenty of Democrats should be able to find agreement with.

Hannity wondered if the GOP would seriously take this up. Palin said if they don’t have the “cojones,” they should, and declared that any person who cares about the safety and security of the nation needs to get behind filing articles of impeachment because “enough is enough.”

 

Of course you know (if you read my yesterday’s post) I concur with Sarah Palin – “enough is enough”.

 

I was not surprised to learn that Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) curtly responded to Palin’s Hannity appearance – “I disagree”.

7-9-14 – (John Boehner on IMPEACH OBAMA Stance by Republicans and Sarah Palin) – Yesterday, when a reporter asked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) if he agrees with Sarah Palin’s call to impeach President Barack Obama, he politely responded, “I always respect other people’s opinions,” before saying he has no plans to make such a proposal. When House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) was asked the same question at his press conference this morning, his response was a bit more terse to say the least. He appeared to lose interest in the question as it was being asked, saying curtly, “I disagree,” while scanning the assembled press to see who he could call on next.

When the reporter continued to ask about House Republicans who also think Obama should be impeached, his expression grew more stern and he repeated, “I disagree.”

Last month, when Boehner confirmed his plans to sue President Obama over his use of executive actions, the speaker insisted, “This is not about impeachment, this is about his faithfully executing the laws of our country.”

 

 

Boehner’s flippant answer in a disdainful manner is at least one of the reasons Tea Party Conservatives desire him to be replaced as the lead Republican making him Speaker of the House. It is also a classic example of Republicans labeled RINOs and of Conservative Republicans more concerned about political position than moving the USA back to the very Conservative principles enumerated in the Republican Party Platform (2012). I suspect when Palin was referring to a Party Platform it was to point two – We The People: A Restoration of Constitutional Government. Here are the subsections of this platform point:

 

o   A Restoration of Constitutional Order: Congress and the Executive

 

o   Defending Marriage Against An Activist Judiciary

 

o   A Sacred Contract: Defense of Marriage

 

o   Living Within Our Means: A Constitutional Budget

 

o   Federalism and The Tenth Amendment

 

o   The Continuing Importance of Protecting the Electoral College

 

o   Voter Integrity to Ensure Honest Elections

 

o   The First Amendment: The Foresight of Our Founders to Protect Religious Freedom

 

o   The First Amendment: Speech that is Protected

 

o   The Second Amendment: Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms

 

o   The Fourth Amendment: Liberty and Privacy

 

o   The Fifth Amendment: Protecting Private Property

 

o   The Ninth Amendment: Affirming the People’s Rights

 

o   The Sanctity and Dignity of Human Life

 

o   Respect for Our Flag: Symbol of the Constitution

 

o   American Sovereignty in U.S. Courts

 

 

Now I can understand why President Closet-Communist thumbs his nose at these platform headings, BUT I cannot accept that the current most powerful person in the Republican Party does not think Obama has flagrantly abused these Constitutional stands. When Speaker Boehner proclaims publically at a press conference, “I disagree,” he also thumbing his nose at the GOP Party Platform. I have to wonder – does this mean Boehner intends to abandon Conservative principles in supporting the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution?

 

Boehner is only the tip of the iceberg of Republicans lacking cojones to act on what needs to be done to protect this nation from Obama’s agenda of transforming America from the Founding Father’s constitutional vision to a top-down Leftist utopian government. The writer that goes by the pseudonym AllahPundit at Hot Air brings up some great observations about Republicans that are bona fide Conservatives yet play politics above the needs of WE THE PEOPLE:

 

… He [Boehner] wants to do something bold to show conservatives that he’s resisting Obama’s power grabs, but not so bold that it’ll blow up in the GOP’s face in November. The lawsuit is the perfect gesture. It gives him an excuse to rail against executive overreach publicly while booting the disposition of the matter to the courts. If they rule against him, it’s the judiciary’s fault, not his. And if it takes a year or more for the case to wend its way up to the Supreme Court, even better. It’s off his plate, which is what’s important. (Said Palin to Hannity last night, “You don’t bring a lawsuit to a gunfight, and there’s no room for lawyers on our front lines.”) For him to turn around and agree with Palin on impeachment after all that would be bizarre. Why pursue a circuitous legal route to rein in Obama if he’s prepared to try to remove him from office entirely?

 

It’s not just Boehner who’s running away from impeachment either. In purple-state Iowa, GOP Senate nominee Joni Ernst — who’s been endorsed by Palin — carefully explained to Yahoo News yesterday that she didn’t really say she wanted to impeach Obama the last time she said she wanted to impeach Obama.

 

Republican Iowa U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst attempted Tuesday night to walk back statements made at a January event in which she said President Barack Obama had “become a dictator” who should be “removed from office” or face “impeachment.”…

 

“To be clear, I have not seen any evidence that the President should be impeached,” the statement …

 

… Could Boehner’s impeachment-avoidance strategy end up backfiring if he loses his lawsuit? Imagine a federal judge rules that the House’s dispute with O over executive power is a political question that should either be decided by the people at the polls or by the people’s representatives through their Article I powers — which, of course, includes impeachment. The courts will have essentially punted this issue back to Boehner and told him, a la Erick Erickson, to man up and accept the political risk of trying to remove the president if he’s allegedly so troubled by executive overreach. What’s Boehner’s move then? Use the power of the purse to choke off funding for Obama’s priorities and quietly ignore impeachment altogether, right?

 

… (Boehner: I disagree with Palin about impeaching Obama; By AllahPundit; Hot Air; 7/9/14 12:41 PM)

 

This indicates that among RINOs and Conservatives in the Republican Party, their power structure has become political rather than considering their constituents or this American Republic designed to accommodate the American people in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Hannity had asked Palin toward the end of his interview if Palin was considering leaving the GOP. She answered carefully and semi-cryptically to the effect she had no intention to leave the Republican Party but if the Party leaves her what choice would she have. Since the Republican debacle of Election 2012 I have sensed the Republican Party has left true Conservatives. What choice should we make?

Illicit Piranha Feeding over WaPo Stats on Tea Party Spending Habits


USS GOP - Tea Party vs GOP Establishment

John R. Houk

© June 11, 2014

 

I often post relevant emails from PACs that are also fund raising for a cause. I don’t necessarily support the fund raising but I always include that info to give the reader the choice to do so.

 

While in the course of looking for background info on one those emails from the Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC) I ran into some information that I found disappointing about various Tea Party organizations. One of those organizations is one of my favorites as far as the Tea Party Movement goes which is the Tea Party Express (let’s abbreviate as TPX). The TPX has a few offshoot PACs of which I also have a close affinity for; such as Move America Forward and the CCC.

 

The disturbing information I discovered was the accusation that TPX leadership pocket substantial amounts of their donations for personal use and only utilize a small percentage for the actual Tea Party agenda. So I wrote a kind of a full disclosure paragraph prior to posting the CCC email entitled “Benghazi Bombshell: Allen West’s Stunning Report” on May 26, 2014. Here is that paragraph:

 

The Conservative Campaign Committee (CCC) sent a donation request via email and in doing so talked about the subject of Benghazigate. Just a heads up about donations to this particular Tea Party connected PAC is that there appears to be a lineage questionable spending of those donations. Apparently this lineage of Tea Party organizations spend most of their donated money on salaries than they do on the causes they promote. Of course donation mismanagement accusations might be an attack job by the Republican Establishment elites growing weary of Tea Party organizations telling voters they can make a difference by not voting for RINOs and/or Republicans with a semi-Conservative agenda but refuse to change the air of political corruption plaguing Congress. A lot of fiefdoms would topple among Dems and the GOP Establishment that maintain the power structure of do-nothing to solve budget and debt crises in America (Perhaps there is a suggestion GOP elite response HERE and HERE.)

 

The first link (other than the CCC link) is to RightOnDaily.com. Before discussing that link here is a very brief description from their about page:

 

The Right On Daily Blog – is now a collaborative effort of several conservative activists in Placer County. As such, individual identities are not specified.

 

Please note that the primary purpose of RightOnDaily.com is about exposing fraud in the Republican Party and the agendas of government.

 

Posted – 2:47 am

Aaron F Park

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

 

The Placer County spoken of on the about page has been a Republican Party stronghold for some time with a population of nearly 350,000 people that stretches from near Sacramento to its west to the Nevada border on its east. So for clarification’s sake it is true to say that RightOnDaily.com supports a Conservative agenda.

 

Aaron F. Park authored the post of the critical information of various Tea Party organizations of which the TPX lineage is also included. The post is entitled “Finally! National Exposure “Tea Party” PAC’s exposed for the frauds they are…” Park quotes a story that he only identifies as MSM so I am unsure of the actual source:

 

Three well-known groups — the Tea Party Patriots, the Tea Party Express and the Madison Project — have spent 5 percent or less of their money directly on election-related activity during this election cycle. Two other prominent tea party groups, the Senate Conservatives Fund and FreedomWorks, have devoted about 40 percent of their money to direct candidate support such as ads and yard signs.

 

On average, super PACs had spent 64 percent of their funds on directly helping candidates by roughly this stage in the 2012 election cycle, according to Federal Election Commission data.

 

I have a limited familiarity with the Tea Party Patriots and the Senate Fund so I will let them off the hook with my thoughts. The accusation that the TPX (and probably related affiliates) have only spent 5% of their donations on “election related activity” as compared to the 40% or the larger 64% is quite the accusation.

 

It took some random Googling to stumble upon the article that Aaron Park spoke of. I was not surprised the article was in the Washington Post written by Matea Gold. The article written by Ms. Gold is entitled “Tea party PACs reap money for midterms, but spend little on candidates”. Gold’s article is probably more fodder for Establishment Republicans than for Dems. If the Dems overtly and specifically criticize the fiscal management of Tea Party organizations, there is a good chance blow back on Dem campaign tactics like ballot stuffing of ineligible voters (e.g. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and dead people etc.) and more nefarious practices by Community activist Dem or Leftist PACs. Leftist PACs campaign practices go way beyond pouring money into individual Dem candidates and would dwarf any significance to any fiscal mismanagement Gold accuses Tea Party organizations of. 

 

I found a Hot Air article which tries to be even handed but in my opinion leans toward Establishment favoritism managed a fair and balanced quote from Sal Russo of the Tea Party Express that places Gold’s statistics in a better perspective:

 

The Tea Party Express, a PAC run out of Sacramento by longtime Republican consultant Sal Russo, has paid Russo’s firm $2.75 million since the beginning of 2013, while donating just $45,000 to candidates and spending less than $162,000 on ads and bus tours supporting their election.

 

Russo said that figure was misleading because most of the payments to his firm were reimbursements for the cost of staffing the elaborate bus tours and rallies that the group holds around the country.

 

“Everything goes on our credit card,” he said. “Sometimes there’s up to 45 people that we’ve got to feed and house.”

 

Those activities, while not explicit political expenditures, give a bigger return than expensive television ads, Russo said. (WaPo: Tea Party PACs spend most of their cash on themselves; By Ed Morrissey; Hot Air; 4/28/14 2:01 PM) 

 

It sounds to me like Russo is saying TPX spends most of its money on grass roots organizing. HELLO! Building grass roots voters is what will build a strong voting bloc. Ultimately rallies and meetings spreading the Conservative message of fair taxes, less government, fiscal responsibility and constitutional Originalism. People that vote for a political party out of a family heritage, Union pressures or popularity due to name recognition are typically ignorant voters. Committed Leftists know what they are voting for and will mislead the young, the minorities and the elderly based on government hand-outs. This group of people may not realize they are voting for bigger taxes, bigger and more intrusive government, the delusion that a fetus is a part of a person’s body like an appendix and an immoral society. Tea Party voters know they are voting for Conservative principles. Now it may be true that many Tea Partiers may disagree on certain degrees of Social Conservatism yet it is my sense Social Liberal values is a minority while Social Conservative values is more the norm.

 

The grass roots nature of the Tea Party Movement is more than the solidifying the Conservative like-minded. Grass roots also means educating voters. A knowledgeable voter can make up their mind based on what they know rather than what they are told in America’s voting system. In this grass roots vein, a highly organized Tea Party organization like TPX and affiliates will benefit real Conservative candidates in the long run. This will irritate the odd GOP Establishment political spectrum of Left leaning RINOs through slanted Right Republicans that may talk a good Conservative game but vote to not rock the political boat.

 

It is these GOP Establishment types that utilize the journalism of WaPo’s journalist Matea Gold to slam various Tea Party organizations by warping statistics to imply personal pocketing of donations. Now I can see the comeback for my assertion might be something like, “So why do these Tea Party leaders pay themselves big salaries and pay their own private businesses for product and services rendered to their Tea Party PAC organization?”

 

Well let’s see. We live in America. America is a Capitalist entrepreneurial system. It may nepotistic for a politician to influence taxpayer money to their own business or to a business that benefits a family member, but PAC is private funding. There is nothing wrong with using your own business to provide goods and services for a non-taxpayer funded PAC. Dear god! If you can help with sourcing a political agenda you believe in more power to you. I mean billionaire George Soros has his money in so many PACs I’d have to Google a list to find them all. Old Soros has bought into the Leftist transformation of society whole sale steer voters to his way of thinking. Do you think Soros might own something that benefits from providing goods and services to one of the Leftist PAC organizations? It may be more difficult to discover because Soros is a billionaire that supports a society that will eliminate the wealthy that disagrees with a Left a wing utopian society. He makes the same kind of money he derides the wealthy for. So Soros uses shell companies that own shell companies that own companies which own another company. That makes it difficult to trace the power behind the money to a Left Wing PAC.

 

So what if a Tea Party leader is not trying to hide his personal involvement for what he believes in, right?

 

But then there are other Conservatives and Tea Party organizations that view doing business with yourself as a sign of corruption. In asking why I can only speculate. Conservatives like Aaron Park representing a Conservative organization like RightOnDaily.com might be displaying a legitimate even if misguiding suspicion. The term “misguided” is best description I can give of a legitimate Conservative criticizing another legitimate Conservative’s financial methods. Disagreement with the organizational management might be irritating, but I would hesitate to smear a fellow Conservative with nefarious financial practices. Business decisions don’t always work out for the person that may lose a profit to another business. I’m just speculating in Park’s case but perhaps he had a bad business transaction, watched a bad business transaction or heard of a bad business transaction by say someone like a TPX leadership person such as Sal Russo which may have rubbed Park the wrong way.

 

There may be the case of Tea Party organization rivalry as well since the Tea Party Movement is not monolithic. There are the large Tea Party organizations like TPX, but realize most Tea Party organizations are localized by State and even in some cases by County. Connectivity between Tea Party organizations is purely voluntary. If a large organization like TPX plans an event on another local Tea Party organization’s turf and there is disagreement or a lack of agenda coordination, sour grapes are bound to be the produce.

 

Personally I’d like to see the Tea Party Movement become a little more monolithic perhaps even as a political party to eliminate the Establishment portion of the GOP. But that is just me. I suspect a large number of Tea Parties have an affinity to the local independence of a Tea Party organization to push the Conservative agenda that is relevant to the locality. National issues often do not equate well with a local issue.

 

For an Op/Ed article to WaPo’s Gold article, a very good perspective defending how a Tea Party’s fiscal spending agenda can be found at the Tea Party News Network (TPNN) by Greg Campbell entitled “The Left Simply Doesn’t Get it: WaPo Slams Tea Party for Grassroots Commitment”. In that Op/Ed Campbell quotes a great thought from Sal Russo:

 

“All of the tea party Senate victories over the last two cycles have been candidates who had strong grassroots support, but were outspent by their establishment opponents.  The facts are there, but the Washington mentality refuses to see reality.  In 2010, when we didn’t have a presidential nominee to dominate the messaging, we won 10 straight Senate primaries for the underdog who was out-spent by the establishment.  So it obviously shows that good campaigns that are adequately finance with grassroots support can consistently beat big-spending establishment candidates.

 

They obviously ignore the fact that most of our activity is not allocable to specific candidates under the FEC laws and regulations.  When we do rallies and encourage people who either attend, see us on the internet or in the media to get engaged in the political process, it has a profound effect on the election, but it is not reportable as a direct expenditure.  If they are right that engaging people in the political process is irrelevant, why does the establishment spend millions of dollars to defeat tea party candidates?”

 

Ryan Gill of TPX affiliate CCC wrote an email pertaining to that short paragraph I had written on May 26 that informed readers to be cognizant before donating to CCC. That email was a reassurance that there was no hanky-panky going on at CCC. Ryan didn’t go into specifics about those reassurances. I discovered those reassurances in studying for this post. I had asked for permission to post Mr. Gill’s email. Mr. Gill responded to my permission request with this email sent on June 1:

 

I was a little non-specific in my email to you just because I just wanted to reassure you and let you know I can answer questions. But sure, you’re welcome to post it and I’d be happy to see your readers reassured as well. Thanks.

 

Being typically behind in reading my emails I did not get to Mr. Gill’s permission email until June 10. So I decided to investigate the opposite of “non-specific” before I posted Mr. Gill’s original reassurance.

 

I am reassured.

 

Below is the reassurance email. I originally intended to lead off with, but I thought it better to write what I discovered first.

Just saw your post with lengthy disclaimer about CCC and wanted to reassure you that we really value the contributions people make and we’re proud of how we’re able to use those funds to be effective on behalf of the conservative movement.

 

Of course there’s a lot of confusing and sometimes misleading information out there and it’s often convenient for liberal reporters or others not to dig deeper and actually find out what’s going on. So I appreciate that you want to do your due diligence and you want readers to be apprised. So it’s a constant battle for us explaining what we do, how and why…and often to people who have already decided that they just don’t like us or what we do.

 

So I just wanted to reassure you about our organization and efforts and make sure you know that I’m available to answer questions (though I may be slow at times) if there’s something you don’t understand.

 

And of course: thanks so much for sharing our email and for all the good work you do! We’re glad you’re out there.

Ducking from the Truth


Agenda- Homo Plan Change America

Mark Alexander of The Patriot Post tackles the Left Wing usage of the tool of the Homosexual Agenda used to depreciate Christianity and Biblical Morality in order to transform society into a Leftist Utopia. This is a subject that is nearly if not totally ignored by the Mainstream Media and unfortunately the leading Conservative pundits in America. Why? The ungodly union of Leftist Transformationism and the Homosexual Agenda have successfully managed the narrative that defending Biblical Morality is bigotry as well as giving Homosexual activism the aegis of the destruction of Religious Liberty.

Ducking from the Truth

The ‘Gay Agenda’ v. Liberty

 

By Mark Alexander

January 8, 2014

The Patriot Post

 

Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” –George Washington (Farewell Address, 1796)

 

For five decades, a relentless and insidious campaign to undermine faith and family, the foundational tenets of our Republic, has been on the rise. With the 2008 election of Barack Hussein Obama, the most faith-intolerant regime in the history of our Republic, the growth of that campaign has become a malignant battle for the hearts and minds of American voters.

 

Most of the participants in this battle are unwitting pawns of the political Left, believing that they are simply supporting individual rights. In reality, they are systematically eroding the ground beneath the two most critical pillars of Liberty: faith and family. In the end, the inevitable and irrevocable terminus of these actions is tyranny.

 

Though social research organizations consistently find that those with gender identity issues make up less than 3% of the population, that tiny minority has become the most vociferous enemy of faith and family – and has rallied a substantial political constituency. For that reason, few social and political commentators will even venture into this arena, fearing public vilification and removal of their public platform by Leftmedia print and TV outlets under pressure from weak-kneed advertisers.

 

No such fear here, but as a prerequisite for this analysis, let it be stated clearly that the central government has no constitutional authority to regulate sexual activity between consenting adults. However, our Republic most assuredly has a stake in protecting religious Liberty, and marriage as defined by the Laws of Nature.

 

The first target of the Left and their homosexual agenda constituency is the first clause of the First Amendment to our Constitution, which states simply, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

 

That succinct proscription notwithstanding, Leftist judicial supremacists, who occupy what Thomas Jefferson called “the Despotic Branch,” have adulterated the plain language of that clause to greatly suppress the free exercise of Liberty across the nation. They have succeeded in large measure to supplant Rule of Law with the rule of men – the rule of egocentric executives and legislators who believe they are the font of wisdom sufficient for ruling over their subjects.

 

The second pillar of Liberty targeted by the Left is the family – beginning with marriage. In the words of Justice Joseph Story, “Marriage is … in its origin, a contract of natural law. … It is the parent, and not the child of society; the source of civility and a sort of seminary of the republic.”

As you recall, in 2008 candidate Obama himself feigned disdain for same-sex marriage and asserted a pretense of faith: “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian … it is also a sacred union. God’s in the mix. … I am not somebody who promotes same-sex marriage.” Of course, that was just another bald-faced election-year lie. A full 12 years earlier, while running for Illinois State Senate, Obama said this: “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.”

 

Obama’s expressed sentiment therefore lasted only as long as the campaign. No sooner had he been elected than he began a concerted effort to undermine marriage by promoting “gay rights.” Most notably in 2010, just weeks before the “Tea Party Republicans” who had decimated the Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections took control of the House, Obama signed last-minute legislation overturning the Clinton-era policy of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” thus subjecting military ranks to overt homosexuality.

 

What Leftist politicos understand, but most of their constituents do not, is that the deconstruction of religious Liberty and the family, starting with the redefinition of marriage, will ultimately result in the rise of an oppressive and dictatorial successor.

 

Occasionally, the Left attempts to merge both its assault on religious Liberty and upon the family into one battle, endeavoring to kill two birds with one stone – the first being the “Natural Law” contract of marriage, and the second being the objection to homosexuality by every religion on the planet.

 

Such was the case in May 2012, when homosexual advocates managed a successful coup d’état against one of the most faith- and family-centered organizations in the nation – the Boy Scouts of America – opening the door for homosexual members in order to open the next door for homosexual leaders.

 

Emboldened by that success, they began a national campaign to target Christian-owned pro-family businesses – small and large – endeavoring to break their support for marriage by way of legal injunctions against their expression of their faith. Finally, the coercive “gay lobby” campaign met its match.

 

A very high-profile failure was the homosexual assault on Chick-fil-A due to CEO Dan Cathy, and his very vocal Christian affirmation of faith and family. Cathy’s rejection of so-called “gay marriage” was the catalyst for an attempted national boycott against the restaurant chain, but the result was an outpouring of support for Chick-fil-A.

 

But homosexual advocates suffered a far more spectacular defeat just last month, as you undoubtedly heard, when the Arts and Entertainment network attempted to expel the patriarch of one of the most successful cable television programs in history, solely due to his expression of faith and support for marriage and family in a GQ magazine profile.

The details of the A&E defeat provide a useful case study in “David and Goliath” politics – grassroots activism versus huge media and political adversaries.

 

Phil Robertson, who heads the popular Duck Dynasty clan featured on A&E, was asked by GQ editors about sin and repentance, and he responded with a paraphrase from 1 Corinthians 6: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers – they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.” Robertson added a few comments considered crude by “cultured” leftists, but reflective of the provincial language of his Louisiana culture.

 

As soon as the article was published online, Robertson was attacked by the two most influential national homosexual advocacy organizations – the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the so-called “Human Rights” Campaign – for making “anti-gay remarks” in the GQ magazine profile. Typical of how Robertson’s remarks were framed are these pathetic pontifications from GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz: “Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe. Phil’s decision to push vile and extreme stereotypes is a stain on A&E and his sponsors who now need to re-examine their ties to someone with such public disdain for LGBT people and families.”

 

A&E, which previously asked the Robertson family to reduce its show’s references to guns and closing with prayer – requests the Robertsons refused – swiftly expelled Phil, noting, “His personal views in no way reflect those of A&E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.”

 

Within days of A&E’s decision, Sandra Cochran, CEO of Cracker Barrel, one of the largest family restaurant chains in the nation, announced with much fanfare that she was ordering merchandise connected to Phil Robertson removed from their shelves. Cochran noted, “We operate within the ideals of fairness, mutual respect and equal treatment of all people. These ideals are the core of our corporate culture.”

 

As I wrote Cochran, “Nothing Phil Robertson said offends your ‘corporate culture,’ unless you are offended by the foundational sacrament of marriage between man and woman as defined in the Old and New Testaments of Christian Scripture – and every other major world religion.”

 

The nation’s largest retailer, Walmart, wisely kept its shelves loaded with Duck Dynasty products.

 

The execs of A&E, Cracker Barrel and the highest profile homosexual advocacy organizations assumed the rest of the Robertson clan was more invested in their lucrative contracts with A&E than their faith, and their viewers were more invested in the asinine antics of reality shows than the substance and world view of the characters in this particular show.

 

Bad assumptions. Neither the Robertsons, nor their fans, duck the truth.

 

In less than 48 hours, Cracker Barrel issued one of the most stunning corporate apologies on record. “When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we’ve done. You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened. Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores, and, we apologize for offending you.”

Days later, after Phil Robertson’s family advised the network that they would not go on without their patriarch, A&E folded its hand. Apparently the network execs were more invested in their viewer share revenue than being “strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community.” As some sort of recompense for their gender-confused audience, they announced, “We will use this moment to launch a national public service campaign (PSA) promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people, a message that supports our core values as a company, and the values found in Duck Dynasty.”

 

This week, the Robertson family announced their new endorsement line of firearms, undoubtedly a source of additional heartburn for A&E.

 

This resounding defeat of the homosexual lobby is a case study in how grassroots Americans can successfully confront and crush the Left elite. By extension, it is also a strong indication that Patriots across the nation are poised to deliver the same humiliating defeat to leftists in 2014 that they did in 2010.

 

The bottom line is that a growing number of grassroots Americans recognize that the Chick-fil-A and Duck Dynasty showdowns are not about homosexuals, chickens or ducks, but about the suppression of faith expression and the undermining of Liberty. Phil Robertson is not a bigot, but those who suppress religious Liberty in the name of “tolerance and diversity” certainly are.

 

Those who support the “gay agenda” certainly think they do so for the right reasons. But they’ve been lulled into thinking that this issue has no overarching implications for the Liberty of future generations. They are wrong.

Grassroots Conservatives – Do Something Different!

I have become a proponent of Conservatives establishing a Third Party because too many RINOs control the GOP to assert Conservative principles and effectively present a case to American voters that eschews Political Correctness for Political Reality.

 

I used to be so committed to the GOP. I truly believed Conservatives as the voice of voters could turn out RINOs and replace them with Conservative principled leadership. It did not happen in 2010 or 2012. To repeat the hope the minority Establishment Republicans will be turned out of the GOP leadership now comes under the definition for insanity. Keep repeating the same actions expecting a different result defines insanity. Insanity is happening for Conservatives if WE expect a Conservative leadership to step up and silence same’ol–same’ol political agendas with a huge subservience to Political Correctness.

 

Modern history has shown that a Third Party has never successfully made an impact to put a dent either the Dem Party or the Republican Party. In fact history shows a Third Party that has a membership that is disaffected from one of the Two Dominant Parties hurts their former Party in Presidential elections.

 

There are two ways for Conservatives to start a Third Party then displace the Republicans and become one of the Two Dominant Parties.

 

We can form that Third Party with a decent name and not something silly like the No-Nothing Party or the Bull Moose Party. A big effort must be made to form a national structure to that Third Party.

 

After forming and giving structure to a Third Party THEN Conservatives that are shoe-ins to win a Republican Office in a Local, State or National level to go ahead and run as Republicans. In the Republican Party candidates on all levels of government run via a grassroots organization process. Many Conservative Republicans on the grassroots level are very unhappy with Establishment Republicans that operate the GOP on a National level. Soon after winning their GOP election THEN leave the Republican Party and switch affiliation to the Third Party. The key for this to be successful are local grassroots organizational operation committed to a truly Conservative National agenda. The greatest grassroots political organizations in Conservative America are the numerous Tea Party organizations that loosely believe on the same principles yet are very active on a local grassroots level.

 

Establishment Republicans, Democrats that understand the future threat and the Mainstream Media will do all they can to propagandize failure of sweeping defections from the GOP to a Conservative Third Party. This is where the grassroots Conservatives become extremely important. Whatever anti-Third Party propaganda flows on a Nationally from Establishment GOP, Dems and the MSM; the grassroots communications that already exist among Tea Partiers and other similar Conservative organizations that have built up a following can pound out the voice of National Propaganda with grassroots Political Reality.

 

COME ON Americans! Let us stand tall against the Establishment and Political Correctness AND teach American voters the truth on a grassroots level. We will win!

The Real Republican Problem

 

By Judson Phillips

July 10, 2013 at 7:17am

Tea Party Nation

 

The Republican Party is again in the political equivalent of intensive care.   It is back on the endangered species list.

 

This is not anything unusual for the GOP.  Like a patient suffering from a severe and perhaps incurable illness, it is back in the hospital again.  The next of kin are debating what to do if the GOP takes a turn for the worse.  Do we try heroic measures or simply allow it to pass quickly and quietly.

 

Unfortunately, no one is talking about why the GOP is dying.  What is the Republican Party’s problem that is causing its death?

 

The Republican Party has two major problems.

 

The first is a massive case of Potomac Fever.

 

Frontier Labs did a research study and looked at the issue of why Republicans are leaving the Party.  They came up with some amazing but obvious answers.  Republicans are tired of being told the GOP is the lesser of two evils.  People do not like evil, be it a lesser or greater evil.

 

People do not like being lied to and that was one of the huge reasons people are leaving the Republican Party.  Time after time, the Party Faithful are told the Republicans are the conservative party and will push a conservative agenda.   When these Republican leaders get to Washington, they then do just the opposite of what they promised.  Marco Rubio, John McCain and Kelly Ayotte are some of the most recent examples.  All campaigned in their last election against Amnesty and now have turned around and voted for Amnesty.

 

Republicans have another problem, almost as large as their evil and dishonesty problems.

 

What do Republicans stand for today?

 

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s website features his hashtag “#makinglifework.”  How about a responding hashtag, “#WTF?”

 

Whatever else anyone wants to say about the Democrats, there is no doubting what they stand for and what their agenda is.   As for the Republicans, no one has a clue.    America has a greater chance of finding Jimmy Hoffa’s body than we do of finding a Republican agenda for America.

 

Addicts cannot recover until they hit rock bottom.  The first step for recovery is to admit you have a problem.  The second step is absolute brutal honesty.

 

If the Republican is to survive, it must make some real changes.  If the Republican Party is worthy of survival, it must make changes.

 

First, the Republicans have to drop the lesser of two evils mentality and adopt a policy of honesty.  Republicans must run on a platform and when a Republican breaks his or her word and turns their back on their promises, there must be consequences.    For Republicans in Congress that means if you promise you will vote against something like Amnesty and lie to the people you represent, then the party must strip that Senator or Congressman of their positions within the Party and the Congress.

 

If a Republican wants to run on policies like Amnesty or Tax Increases, let them.  And if they get elected and vote that way, the people of that state voted that way.  But if a Republican lies by saying they will vote against bigger government then does just the opposite, the Party must enforce discipline.

 

Finally, the GOP is going to have to decide what it stands for.  If the Republican Party is going to be a conservative party, as it advertises itself, then run and act as a conservative party.

 

A bad plan is better than no plan at all and that is what we have.  The Democrats have a bad plan and the Republicans have no plan at all.

 

Either the GOP changes now or we can start planning the funeral for the Republican Party.  For the Republican Establishment who does not believe that is possible, they should remember, there is an open plot in graveyard politics.

 

And it’s located right next to the Whig Party.

It’s Time to Protest BHO’s ‘Change’ in Americans’ Personal Lives


Obamacare Freedom Meter

John R. Houk

© April 16, 2013

 

CJ has exposed the Marxist-Socialist despotic “Change” promised by Obama and voted for by a majority of Americans in 2008 and 2012. We indeed need to find a grassroots paradigm to renew the thinking of Americans on Constitutional privacy and Liberty of choice.

 

Obama’s Administration is forcing doctors to collect information on their patients or faced an ‘or else’ consequence to their profession.

 

OUTRAGEOUS!

 

I’ll be cross posting CJ’s post and personal story on my blog directing readers to follow CJ’s request. That request is for an articulate Conservative to write a usable letter than can go viral on the Internet. I might add and perhaps be sent to the members of Congress on the State and Federal level as well as to inform the President that personal information is none of his business nor the business of government he currently executes.

If this gets you mad then help me try to fix it…

 

By CJ

April 16, 2013 at 5:30am

CJ’s AC2C Blog

 

Respond to this blog on the blog site not in my email [Nor my blog]…everyone needs to see inputs.

 

I’m sure by now many of you have heard that the government has sent out a questionnaire to doctors to be asked of their patients…yesterday I went for my quarterly visit and I am livid!

 

There are around 25; could be more, questions ranging from “did you have a flu shot….mammogram …colonoscopy…what is your BMI?

I declined.

 

My doctor told me that since I declined the government (it sounded like MS) would call me…I said I don’t answer to unknown numbers…she said they’ll send me a letter…Imagine!

 

If I don’t answer or decline to answer the questionnaire doctors could lose their ratings…

 

She said the government said she should get her patients to have these tests or she isn’t a good doctor…

 

SNITCHING…does anyone remember stories about Hitler?  Snitching on each other…

 

O wait…Obama had a “fishing” expedition.  Seems as if he was preparing us for this for years.

 

In the conversation she again expressed leaving her profession, moving back to the country she was born to practice, or even becoming a Realtor, what she may do is get rid of the government by taking only cash patients…imagine, anything but being coerced into treating her patients the way the government wants…

 

My doctor and I spent most all the time talking about this outrage, which she seems to be having this conversation with many of her patients and again she talked about leaving her profession and it wasn’t all about money; it was the government dictating to her how to practice. She said that she was approached to leave her practice and go into the hospital which she declined… saying to me that she’d have to follow the government guidelines.

 

Sounds like doctors are being coerced.

 

Speaking of guidelines, do you know that on the news they discussed the government is giving hospitals rewards of money to keep cost down on patients…WHAT?

 

Already clinics are not treating cancer patients.  Their Hippocratic Oath is disappearing.

 

Here is what I am asking of everyone here:

 

TO DO, and RESOLVE something post.

 

If we can spread this throughout the country perhaps we can stop this interrogation.

 

WE HAVE RIGHT TO CHOOSE…

 

This reminds me of the last census form where as the government added things like how many toilets do you have……WHAT? A census is to find out how many people there are in a household…PERIOD.

 

I answered just that one question…and that was legal.

 

Spread this news.

 

First off we need an articulate person to draft up a letter to make viral on blogs, email, wherever…we should have common words to express how we feel about this interrogation; can someone find whether it’s Constitutional or against our Rights?? …

 

We can then copy and paste into our emails…get it to the media…

 

Perhaps my story can be used with better wording…better yet verify with others who have gone to their doctors recently…you don’t have to believe me…

 

BUT we need one common letter.

 

Your letters can be put on this post and we can pick one…

 

This is so important for us to take a stand against this intrusive behavior of the government.

 

Decline to answer the questions, when you get a phone call decline, when you get the letter cross out the question and add you are declining because you choose to… Just remember to write your feelings for your doctor….I love and respect mind and do not want her to leave…

 

If I’m not making sense it’s because this isn’t sense to me…

 

I have a feeling my name is going in the Big Brother in the sky computer…I may be being watched and Flagged…BUT I am outraged!

 

Respond to this blog on the blog site not in my email [Nor my blog]…everyone needs to see inputs.

Family Values Christians Unite


In God we Trust- Flag & Bible

John R. Houk

© July 13, 2012

 

Solid Snake often complains that pro-family groups are more talk than action. He believes they are more about sending out newsletters to keep the donating base going in order to keep the salaries going for their non-profit organizations. Instead a greater percentage of the donations should be used for actual activism rather than merely moralizing.

 

I believe Solid Snake is on to something. The moralizing is good; however if it is not followed up by action the moralizing is merely for the ever shrinking choir. The choir is shrinking because Left inspired activism is well funded and well organized for activism.

 

In America Christians have allowed America’s Left to effectually war on Christianity. More and more of the Mainstream Church Denominations in America are either losing membership or rendering the Word of God to the level of myth or both. Evangelical Christians and of that lot those Churches that lean to non-denominationalism are the only Christians that are constantly adding numbers to the Body of Christ.

 

Solid Snake’s expertise in the infiltration homosexual activist organizations and public events and exposing the depravity and too often illegal activities related to embezzling or corrupting America’s youth with something like promoting underage sex within a homosexual venue.

 

Here is a recent letter that Solid Snake sent to some Pro-Family groups as a call for more activism:

 

Unite: God’s Truth and Family Values

By Solid Snake

Originally sent: June 29, 2012

 

Dear Pro Family Group:

 

 

Thank-you for standing up for God’s Truth and Family Values, and against lawlessness, indecency such as public nudity including homosexual acts and other things that are difficult to put into words-that the Homosexual lobby is trying to force us to accept and affirm…

 

You are aware of homosexual groups and their goals to destroy the nuclear family and our long held American family values. They will silence anyone who questions or challenges them, or who dares to talk about reparative therapy or the freedom to change.

 

I have been watching up close up and personal this battle for quite some time. I have infiltrated some of the most horrific events they put on to bring the reality of what they are doing to your attention. Yet some pro family groups lack the intestinal fortitude to challenge the Homosexuals out in the open head-on.

 

What is there to fear??

 

Perhaps some encouragement is what’s needed. 

 

Writing newsletters and press releases can only go so far. Eventually, the enemy has to be faced on the field of battle, which few have the stomach for, because most are shying away from it. Pretending it doesn’t exist is not going to eliminate the threat.

 

For those who have fought the Homosexuals on their own ground I commend you. The homosexual activists may have main stream media and Hollywood at their beck and call. But you have an ally more powerful than anything or anyone the Homosexual lobby has in their suitcase of treachery, fraud, violence, lust & greed. That ally is our Lord Jesus Christ. (Emphasis Mine)

 

The only way to combat this evil is to work together as a single unit to expose the inexcusable acts by Homosexual activist groups and what they are doing to children.  I humbly ask you to put your differences aside with your co laborers and work together as a single unit in unit cohesion to overcome this evil.

 

Pool your resources to combat what the enemy is planning before it is too late. Hollow and unstable [is] the foundation of Homosexual’s lobby and their groups’ are capable of severe damage as they are defeated in every arena. [SlantRight Editor: I had a difficult time understanding the original paragraph so I took the liberty to edit this paragraph. I pray I did not alter Solid Snake’s original intent.]

 

An attack on one pro family organization or person who opposes the homosexual lobby should be considered an attack on all (clergy included).  All the Hate email, snail mail written by homosexual “activists”, bloggers should be posted publicly verbatim so people can see how vile and evil they really are to anyone who questions or opposes their lifestyle. I sincerely thank you for your work and I will continue to support and assist your cause however I can. 

 

 

 

Sincerely:

 

Solid Snake

 

Cc: NYFRF, FRC, Mass Resistance, AFA, Mission America, NOM, AFTH (sic)

 

The last organization a copy was sent to is actually AFTAH. The “Cc” forgot a letter. In conversations I have had with Solid Snake the organizations he rates as best is Mass Resistance, AFTAH and Mission America. The Pro-Family organizations that Solid Snake believes are not pulling their weight in activism are AFA and FRC. I am certain Solid Snake has other Pro-Family organizations on the plus and minus side however these are the ones he has mentioned to me.

 

I check up on Mass Resistance and AFTAH via my RSS program. I am on the email lists of AFA and FRC. I don’t know much about Mission America.

 

I know Mass Resistance is in the heat of battle in confronting the homosexual agenda to warp the morals of America. Currently Mass Resistance is in a battle to expose the homosexual activist Adam Flanders who is a convicted Man/Boy sex offender in having sex with a minor boy. Flanders has enlisted the money of homosexual groups to utilize a Leftist activist Judge in Maine to harass Mass Resistance founder Brian Camenker. Exposing Flanders was just a part of taking the fight to the homosexual agenda. Mass Resistance is exposing what is going on at homosexual youth camps. You can guess that more goes on than to just provide a place of validation for corrupted boys and girls that have been brainwashed that choosing a homosexual lifestyle is normal and good for society.

 

AFTAH is all about exposing the perversity of homosexuality that the MSM does not inform heterosexual America and that homosexual activism is hell-bent in preventing such knowledge from reaching Americans while homosexual activism brainwashes people to accept godless morality over Biblical Morality. AFTAH is the acronym for Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.

 

The AFA is the acronym for American Family Association. Below is some AFA information from their website:

 

Who is AFA?

 

American Family Association (AFA) a non-profit 501(c3) organization was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon, who was pastoring First United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi, at the time. Since 1977, AFA has been on the frontlines of America’s culture war. The original name of the ministry was National Federation for Decency but was changed to American Family Association (AFA) in 1988.

 

Today, AFA is one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country with over two million online supporters and approximately 180,000 paid subscribers to the AFA Journal, the ministry’s monthly magazine. In addition, AFA owns and operates nearly 200 radio stations across the country under the American Family Radio (AFR) banner.

Other divisions of AFA include OneNewsNow.com, an online news provider that is syndicated around the world. AFA maintains activist web sites such as OneMillionMoms.com and OneMillionDads.com that rally Christian activists to contact companies asking them to drop their advertising from objectionable TV shows. AFA web sites average over 40 million hits and five million visitors each month.

AFA uses all these means to communicate an outspoken, resolute, Christian voice throughout America.

 

HAS AFA MADE AN IMPACT?

 

AFA is a long-time member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. In 2008, the AFA received a second consecutive four-star rating from Charity Navigator (CN), an independent watchdog organization which monitors nonprofit groups.  Click here to see article.

 

Highlights of AFA’s recent accomplishments include:

 

2010

 

§  AFA issued its annual “Naughty or Nice” listing of retailers’ recognition of Christmas in its advertising.  Over one million people viewed the list during Nov/Dec.

 

§  Alerted consumers to Sears’ distribution of hard-core pornography from its website. Sears eventually pulled the material.

 

§  Launched a boycott of The Home Depot after it refused to remain neutral in the culture war.

 

§  Stopped Comedy Central from airing “JC”, a cartoon mocking Jesus and Christianity.

 

§  Launched the iVote campaign, placing hundreds of billboards across the nation, encouraging citizens to vote their values in November.

 

§  Exposed homosexual “Day of Silence” and encourage parents to keep their children home from public school on that day.

 

§  AFA suspended the boycott of PepsiCo. After monitoring the company for several months, AFA is satisfied the company has withdrawn its major financial contributions to gay activist groups.

 

§  Over 11,705 official indecency complaints were filed with the FCC after FOX Network aired a bestiality scene on its American Dad program.

 

§  Erroll Southers, the President’s poorly chosen nominee to head up the Transportation Security Administration, withdrew his name from consideration. Tens of thousands of you sent letters to your senators in response to our action alert on his nomination.

 

There is more impact info from the years 2009 down to 2006.

 

The whole page of which “Who is AFA?” and “Has made an Impact” can be viewed HERE.

 

I have to disagree with Solid Snake that the AFA is ineffective in activism. I believe the AFA has made a huge impact in defense of Family Values. On the other hand if the AFA and other Pro-Family groups unite in a defined level to protect Family Values the impact would bury homosexual activism among the other issues that are on attack mode against Family Values. For example a coordinated front of Family Values activism on a grassroots level is something that would have to be reported by the Mainstream Media (MSM).

 

For example he has taken it upon himself to infiltrate homosexual events to take pictures and videos of the perversion that occurs in public. Yet he feels like a lone wolf because he and perhaps a few willing buddies enter these streets and avenues of Sodom and Gomorrah.

 

The Family Research Council (FRC) is not as activist oriented in its agenda as the AFA. Here is some information about FRC activities from their website:

 

About FRC

 

Since 1983, Family Research Council (FRC) has advanced faith, family and freedom in public policy and public opinion. FRC’s team of seasoned experts promotes these core values through policy research, public education on Capitol Hill and in the media, and grassroots mobilization. We review legislation, meet with policymakers, publish books and pamphlets, build coalitions, testify before Congress, and maintain a powerful presence in print and broadcast media. Through our outreach to pastors, we equip churches to transform the culture.

Strategically located in Washington, D.C., FRC is the leading voice for the family in our nation’s halls of power.  FRC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

 

Mission Statement

 

Family Research Council (FRC) champions marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society. FRC shapes public debate and formulates public policy that values human life and upholds the institutions of marriage and the family. Believing that God is the author of life, liberty, and the family, FRC promotes the Judeo-Christian worldview as the basis for a just, free, and stable society.

 

You can read more about the FRC history HERE.

 

FRC’s activism is in educating a network of people that are influential in Washington, DC politics. The FRC’s idea of grassroots activism is keeping a network of potential donors informed. To give FRC a little credit, informing their network of potential donors is in all probability influencing potential voters who will in turn be writing their Senator and Congressman on a Federal and State level. Hopefully this influence also translates into the proper votes on a County and City level.

 

A true impact would be to organize a spontaneous looking protest against homosexual debauchery in the thousands at all the major cities that allow perverted homosexual events to take place across the USA. NOW that would be some impact.

 

The impact would be the MSM would have a difficult time reporting a confrontation as between poor victimized homosexuals and some bigoted Christians. If the MSM would dare to show Christians walking peacefully with signs and Scriptural chants of protest compared to the barely clad males participating in something like homosexual sadomasochism, then the public would have a hard time believing a MSM spin that Christian protesters were utilizing violent intimidation. I am certain any violence that would ensue would be from homosexuals engaging in violent intimidation and coarse language that would match the perversion already being engaged into.

 

This kind of grassroots activism is something Pro-Family groups FAIL to engage in. One must ask – WHY?

 

Solid Snake might answer the question that the Pro-Family groups’ fear their funding may be attacked in some way when homosexual activism strikes back with the usual baited diatribes that Christians are engaging in homophobic bigotry. After all homosexuals have the Right as Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender individuals to choose this alternate lifestyle because even the American Medical Association as well as the Psychology and Psychiatrist equivalents were intimidated into changing homosexuality from a mental health problem to societal normalcy.

 

Homosexuals are actually a very small minority in America. According to the MSM The Atlantic less than 5% of Americans are homosexuals. Of course the opposite is true then: MORE THAN 95% OF AMERICANS ARE THE REAL NORMAL. This statistic does not make homosexuals a small minority, rather it makes homosexuals NOT NORMAL.

 

Now think of the impact on American culture if the huge proportion of the Christian population that is a  part of 95% of normal Americans, united on a grassroots level, to counter the money-power of the way less than 5% of homosexual activism – would Biblical morality be reaffirmed?

SlantRight Editor: Solid Snake sent the 990s of the AFA and FRC to drive home the point that those two Pro-Family organization are more interested in money than inspiring local grassroots activism across America. I have to be honest that bean counting is not one of my strong points in producing an appropriate analysis. So this is what I am going to do. I am going to post some screen shots of sections of the 990s and those of you with a head for math send me the analysis of what the AFA and the FRC can do better on a grassroots involvement on the local level.

Bartlett Comment to ‘A Change of Tactics’


Grass Roots America

Dennis Bartlett comments on the post “A Change of Tactics” by Danny Jeffrey which I cross posted at quite a few blog of my blog sites. In this case the comment was at my social network blog at America Conservative 2 Conservative (AC2C). I immensely enjoyed the comment.

 

It is at the grassroots level that America’s Left will fall. Thus I am grateful Dennis that you are making an impact on the local level. Indeed I am becoming more and more convinced that it is at the local level that our Constitutional Republic will survive under the vision of our Founding Fathers. Your comment is excellent Dennis!

 

If America comes to a civil war against the Left, grassroots organization will be the path to arm and train for the fight to stand up for the American Way of Life.

Bartlett Comment to ‘A Change of Tactics’

 

By Dennis Bartlett

July 8, 2012

 

John, You can see how popular this blog is when everyone should be vested in it. These “patriot” based blogaspheres don’t seem to have any meaning when every day there are another dozen blogs. No one is focused and because of that nothing gets done. They are fanning the flames but it doesn’t accomplish a damn thing. It’s very easy to put out several small fires instead of a firestorm, well meaning but misdirected.

 

People don’t have a clue about the two parties, actually one masquerading as two. Both see the Tea Party as a rogue and out of control group of complainers.

 

The heads of these groups are in bed with the establishment. I see no other explanation for them with their power (past tense) not to have made and make a difference. These groups have lost the passion because now they seem to have no direction.

 

The interest in the upcoming election is very mixed knowing that whom ever is elected things will remain the same. It has been designed that way by the World Powers and not the American people yet very few know it or understand it. In the end it isn’t about America, it’s about World Dominance!

 

I’m dismayed and discouraged at the lack of knowledge these groups have and don’t attack the root cause. I have quit posting for the most part because of commitments to our County, a place where you can “change” things.

 

I’ve been involved in our County Assembly for the last 3 years and we grow stronger by the month. The people on these sites talk of the Founding Fathers the Bill of Rights, Constitution blah blah blah yet don’t understand the workings of it or ‘how’ this nation was formed.

 

The founders started by forming Assemblies from their Colonies. Today we start with County Assemblies, a “Lawful Body Politic” which was forgotten when FDR took over, literally!

 

How’s that working in DC thing working for you? It doesn’t and won’t yet as Einstein said about insanity just proves that people just don’t get it. PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A Republic starts at the bottom NOT at the top.

 

I say it as I see it and not here to make friends. This is my Country and I took an Oath to protect it and not the other way around. It is my view that eventually we will wind up fighting for it because we still expect “them” to take care of us and we will not win regardless of what many think.

Take a Grassroots Stand AGAINST Sharia Law


Muslim Kid wizzing on USA

There is a Stealth Jihad occurring in America that uses America’s Constitution as interpreted by Leftist “Living Constitution” interpreters to erode the Bill of Rights by allowing the unconstitutional practices of Islam’s Sharia Law to be accepted in this nation. If one stands against Islam then Muslim apologists and dhimmicrat Leftist diverse multiculturalists will label that one a racist Islamophobe.

 

I personally have nothing against any people practicing Islam; however I have a huge amount of antipathy for the religion of Islam on two grounds:

 

1.  I am a Christian and as such I view Islam as an anti-Christ religion that denies not only the Three-Persons in ONE God Trinity, but also denies the Sonship of Christ Jesus.

 

2.  Islamic Supremacism erodes every freedom America’s Constitution provides every American for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness first penned in the Declaration of Independence.

 

Whenever you hear or read about a Muslim or Muslims desiring a special dispensation to live by Sharia Law, it is a witting or unwitting desire to do away with the rule of law as defined by the U.S. Constitution. Many Muslims and Leftists will immediately jump on my case with the accusation of bigoted racism. I have to ask though: Is supporting my faith and my nation’s Constitution bigoted racism or American patriotism?

 

If you think it is American patriotism then take a stroll through the ACT for America website. Act for America is in the forefront to take on political correctness and enable Americans to stand up to the anti-Americanism that is inherent in Sharia Law. Brigitte Gabriel’s ACT for America has been setting up local grassroots chapters in cities across America to rally education on the nature of Islam. Friends this is not racism. The local chapters are a conduit to stand up to the often well financed otherwise obscure Islamic Mosques or so-called American-Muslim organizations that publicly tell us they are for a moderate Islam yet verbally and monetarily support foreign radical Muslims.

 

ACT for America has been properly riled by the recent decision of Tulsa, OK’s Police Chief Charles (Chuck) Jordan demanded that Tulsa Police Officers attend a Law enforcement Appreciation Day at the Islamic Society of Tulsa Mosque. One Officer, Captain Paul Fields, stood up for his First Amendment rights and refused to attend. Fields’ refusal to attend was based on the fact that the Islamic Society of Tulsa publicly proclaimed that proselytizing would occur at the so-call Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. In other words, TPD Officers were forced to participate in an event in which a Muslim sermon would be delivered for the conversion of non-Muslims to Islam.

 

Fields’ refusal to attend was penalized with two weeks suspension WITHOUT pay. Can you imagine that? Captain Fields was penalized for not wanting to be proselytized by Islam. This has to be a violation of the First Amendment, right?

 

Paul Fields has become the poster child to garner grassroots support on a local basis for Americans not to be bullied to yield to Islam against their will. Check out this email I received from ACT for America on how grassroots efforts won a victory in Minnesota.

Islamic Caliphate is Coalescing


Islamophobic & Proud

John R. Houk

© March 1, 2011

 

I always get in trouble for this thought: Islam is evil. This three word thought elicits vulgar comments from Muslims and outrage from Left Wing multiculturalists with the accusation of Islamophobe meant as an epithet and not a compliment. In honesty I have often given Muslims devoted to a theological principle of worship with the desire to better oneself via their monotheistic deity the benefit of the doubt. The benefit is a faith of inner peace. The doubt is Islam is just as much political as it is theological. This means there is a direct link between the governing authority and a focus on faith in the religion of Islam.

 

In my Christian faith, residing in America as well as being a Conservative, I am a huge believer of religion being an influence on governing the State, BUT NOT the State having any influence on any religion. The American Left has warped 20th century Constitutional thought into Judicial Activism believing in the propagandized myth of Separation of Church and State. This means that religion must not have any influence in the affairs of governing as well as the government not having any influence in religious practice. The problem for America with the Leftist vision of religion and State is that the moral foundations of our past are being eroded by the Leftist replacement with Secular Humanism which emphasizes Moral Relativity. Moral Relativity means the values of society are purely measurable by what humanity defines as moral. When humanity defines morality there is no constant standard. Biblical Morality is a constant standard based on the Word of God. The lack of a constant standard by its nature means there is little restraint on the proclivity of human nature to act selfishly. Selfishness in human nature left unchecked leads to an ever evolving descent toward wickedness.

 

Today in the name of First Amendment Free Speech there is a pervasiveness of pornography; family disunity via divorce; children are disrespectful of authority to the point of social dysfunction that leads to violence in schools, pervasive teen drug use, despicably abhorrent bullying that incites violent retribution or suicide; theft is so prevalent that one is thought a fool if they don’t loc their doors and more.   

 

The absence of a distinctive difference between temporal governing and religious practice in Islam means that the governing authority must comply with Islamic Law and that the governing authority has the duty to enforce society to follow Islamic Law. This leads to a concept of Islamic Supremacism in which Muslim and non-Muslims have severely curtailed civil rights. For the devoted Muslim this may not be bad news; however for the more secular minded Muslim and the non-Muslim civil rights and civil liberty is extremely hampered which is REAL bad news for a person who violates the governing principles of Sharia Law.

 

It is the theopolitical nature of Islam that makes Islam evil. This is especially so in America in which our nation’s whole foundation is based on the Declaration of Independence which emphasizes the concepts of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. America’s Constitution insures explicitly various rights of Liberty and Freedom which are unalienable. From the Founding Father perspective these unalienable rights are created in humanity by God Almighty Himself. In America life is about choice that does not break the law. In Islam life is about submission to Allah and the deity’s prophet Mohammed.

 

American representative democracy and Islamic culture are as divergent as night and day. Islam can take no other view other than the American way of life is evil. The Liberty implicit in American culture has no choice but to view Islamic culture as evil. The unfortunate circumstance in America is that American Liberty allows Leftist doctrine and Islamic theopolitical thought to be freely expressed even if it eradicates American Liberty. 

 

To switch gears a bit allow me to express some concerns that is going on in the Muslim Maghreb and Middle East.

 

The little Muslim nation of Tunisia exploded into a grassroots move to end the government of their dictator. This move in Tunisia spread through the Muslim world as a wild fire. The irony is the apparent Muslim populist movement is very reminiscent of the Bush Doctrine Neoconservative idea that democracy is an infectious way to live if given the opportunity to attach to any nation in the world. After Iraq and Afghanistan began to regard American invasions as an occupation rather than as a deliverance from despotism, the Bush Doctrine took a major dent. Even Neoconservatives began to be disillusioned with democratic nation building. We Neocons believed that the democratization of Germany and Japan after WWII could be a repeated experiment on any form of despotism. The thing is Germany is from the Western tradition. Although Japan has no roots in Western influence, if one examines Japanese history there are surprising similarities between Japan’s feudal past and Europe’s feudal past. It could be that the feudalism of Japan was a precursor making Japan pliable to adapt Western style democratic institutions.

 

Being Americans, Bush Agenda supporters did not take into consideration that theopolitical Islam would trump civil rights and liberty. Muslim lands have had the curse of a stagnant culture stuck in their successes of the Middle Ages. Also Muslim lands have had the blessing of intense indoctrination of theopolitical Islamic Sharia Law that has made Islam entrenched in the minds of its adherents. The cultural path of Islamic indoctrination enabled each generation of a conquered people to be more and more devoted to Islam. This mind entrenchment thwarts all non-Islamic political ideologies and thwarts the success of an alternative religion from effectively competing with Islam. Alternative political ideologies and alternative religions are not only dealt with harshly by Muslim clerics, but entrenched minds of the populace will take it upon themselves also to deal harshly with alternative concepts.

 

The indoctrinated entrenchment of the Muslim mind makes it a group of people that have a love affair with the concept of a global Caliphate. One might tell you that a Caliph would have the same significance as the Roman Catholic Pope. The Pope today is considered by Catholic adherents as the head of the Church on earth. Today that is translated as the spiritual head of the Church. An Islamic Caliph has more than spiritual attributes. In Islam the Caliph represents a successor to Mohammed. A Caliph must carry out the directives of the Quran, Hadith and Sira. These directives go beyond a concept of a spiritual leader keeping the Ummah (Global Community of Muslims) on the spiritual path of Allah as espoused by the prophet Mohammed.

 

Mohammed made it clear that it is the duty of Muslims to bring Islam to the whole earth. If Islam is rejected then it is the duty of the Muslim conquerors to create conditions that makes the choice of converting to Islam easier. Those conditions include brutal temporal conquest, rejecters of Islam monotheists may choose to retain their faith BUT ONLY if there is an agreement to follow Sharia Law, polytheistic rejecters of Islam do not receive a choice of a dehumanized Sharia life or if the combined rejection of Islam and Sharia is the choice then choice as far as the Quran, Hadith and Sira is concerned is to advocate death.  Polytheistic rejecters of Islam were cut no slack by historical Caliphs of spiritual/temporal power. The polytheists’ choice was simpler: Convert to Islam or die.

 

Islam ran into a snag of convert or die in the conquest of India. The polytheistic Hindu population was so huge even in the 7th and 8th century AD that somebody realized that if all the Hindu rejecters of Islam were slaughtered then there would be nobody left to pay tribute called jizya. Still the slaughter and enslavement of the Indian Subcontinent was an immense genocide of the most heinous brutality of conquest to that date in history. After a jizya system was eventually set up for Hindus, Muslim rulers still felt obligated to please Allah every so often to terminate groups of Hindus’ lives by the will of Allah.  

 

This picture of the past is important in this present day.

 

I foresee a great danger to Western Civilization with the grassroots Muslim uprisings across the Maghreb and the Middle East. Regardless of what you hear about a comparison of grassroots and democracy having a chance in these Muslim lands elucidating the hope that Western democracy will now finally have its opportunity, do not believe it. Islamic theopolitical doctrine and Western concepts of Freedom and Liberty simple are not compatible.

 

If these Muslim grassroots uprisings are successful I assure you their Islamic indoctrinated mind will eventually look to the Quran, Hadith and Sira for direction in a united Ummah. What do you think a united Ummah entails? A united Ummah would demand a Caliphate. What has been the objective the Muslim Brotherhood (and offshoots), Wahhabis, Salafists, Deobandis (SA Here) and the like including al Qaeda sympathizers? That objective is a reformist return to the purity of Mohammed and the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs which is the establishment of a Caliphate to once again move to force the issue of converting to Islam.

 

Check out these thoughts from Andrew C. McCarthy on the grassroots uprisings and the potential of a Caliphate:

 

The caliphate is an institution of imperial Islamic rule under sharia, Muslim law. Not content with empire, Islam anticipates global hegemony. Indeed, mainstream Islamic ideology declares that such hegemony is inevitable, holding to that belief every bit as sincerely as the End of History crowd holds to its conviction that its values are everyone’s values (and the Muslims are only slightly less willing to brook dissent). For Muslims, the failure of Allah’s creation to submit to the system He has prescribed is a blasphemy that cannot stand.   

 

 

As I recounted in The Grand Jihad, Churchill’s views were not eccentric. A modern scholar of Islam, Andrew Bostom, recalls the insights of C. Snouck Hurgronje, among the world’s leading scholars of Islam during World War I. In 1916, even in the dark hours of Ottoman defeat, he marveled at the grip the concept of Islamic hegemony continued to hold on the Muslim masses:

 

It would be a gross mistake to imagine that the idea of universal conquest may be considered as obliterated. . . . The canonists and the vulgar still live in the illusion of the days of Islam’s greatness. The legists continue to ground their appreciation of every actual political condition on the law of the holy war, which war ought never be allowed to cease entirely until all mankind is reduced to the authority of Islam — the heathen by conversion, the adherents of acknowledged Scripture [i.e., Jews and Christians] by submission.

 

Muslims, of course, understood the implausibility of achieving such dominance in the near term. Still, Hurgronje elaborated, the faithful were “comforted and encouraged by the recollection of the lengthy period of humiliation that the Prophet himself had to suffer before Allah bestowed victory upon his arms.” So even as the caliphate lay in ruins, the conviction that it would rise again remained a “fascinating influence” and “a central point of union against the unfaithful.”

 

Today, the OIC is Islam’s central point of union against the unfaithful. Those who insist that the 1,400-year-old dividing line between Muslims and non-Muslims is ephemeral, that all we need is a little more understanding of how alike we all really are, would do well to consider the OIC’s Cairo Declaration of 1990. It is the ummah’s “Declaration of Human Rights in Islam,” proclaimed precisely because Islamic states reject the 1948 Declaration of Human Rights promulgated by the United Nations under the guidance of progressives in the United States and the West. That is, the leaders of the Muslim world are adamant that Western principles are not universal.

 

They are quite right about that. The Cairo Declaration boasts that Allah has made the Islamic ummah “the best community . . . which gave humanity a universal and well-balanced civilization.” It is the “historical role” of the ummah to “civilize” the rest of the world — not the other way around. (The OIC and the Caliphate; Andrew C. McCarthy; National Review; February 26, 2011 4:00 A.M.)

 

“OIC” is the abbreviation for Organization of the Islamic Conference. It is crystal clear that the OIC is the foundation for the dreams of a global Caliphate. There will be a galvanizing of Islamic instruments beginning to call for the return of Islamic purity. Those instruments can be seen in Hasan al-Banna’s founding of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in the 1920’s and a Muslim Sheik’s embracement of a little known group in the Arabian Peninsula named by the West after Muhammad bin Abd al Wahhab (1701 – 1791). Hence there is term Wahhabism. I understand Wahhabis do not necessarily appreciate the appellation and prefer the term Salafism. The MB and Wahhabism were both puritanical yet they were distinct. Nasser’s crackdown on the MB in the 1960s led much of their group to flee. The Saudi King offered refuge. At this point the MB and Wahhabism seemed to have a mutual infusion. This is important because the MB vision has been a Pan-Arab move toward a Caliphate. Wahhabism was pretty much confined to the Arabian Peninsula focusing on a return to the purist Islam of Mohammed’s days.

 

The MB-Wahhabi infusion brought a Pan-Arab Caliphate vision to nation that then began to finance the spread of Salafist theopolitical ideology in the Muslim World (dar al-Islam) and to the non-Muslim world (dar al-harb – significantly Western nations).

 

So let’s recap my thoughts a bit.

 

There is an inspired grassroots movement among Muslims in the Maghreb and the Middle East to change despotic governments. The West has viewed this grassroots movement as an opportunity for democratic institutions in the Muslim world. The reality is Islamic Culture and Western Cultural democratic institutions are totally incompatible and cannot coexist successfully. Salafi movements of which the Muslim Brotherhood is the best known in the West (there are others) have the objective of a return to purist Islam and a return of the theopolitical Caliphate. The OIC is plugged into the Muslim Brotherhood in a Pan-Muslim objective as well as extending Muslim influence toward non-Muslim lands. The OIC is as much theological as it is political.

 

All this points to the OIC as being the platform of establishing the Salafist dream of a Caliphate. Multicultural idiots of the West are big on telling their constituents that the West (especially America) is not at war with Islam. Yet Islam across the Sunni-Shia divide has called America the great Satan. This is an indication that Islam is at war with Western principles because America is the embodiment of Western Freedom and Liberty.

 

Please tell me, someone in the West or America is wise enough to prepare for the inevitable coming conflict between the Secular West (with a Judeo-Christian heritage) and the theopolitical agenda of Islam’s move to a Caliphate?
