That Which Makes America Good is Dissipating


Lady Liberty Drowning in Decay

Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona vetoed SB 1062 designed to keep people of faith – particularly Biblical faith – from being sued by exercising their First Amendment Right to Religious especially against the abomination of the practice of homosexual specifically condemned by the Word of God in both the Old and New Testament.

 

Why?

 

Homosexual Activists have essentially been successful in convincing Americans that homosexuality must be accepted even though God Almighty forbids it. This tells me that Secular Humanism has become so pervasive in our society that a majority of Americans are convinced that human desires are better to be satisfied than the will of the Creator that gave His only begotten Son – God emptied of Divine prerogatives to become the only sinless man – to Redeem humanity back to the path of Oneness with God that Adam experienced before he separated himself from God’s Presence by believing and allying with the Deceiver – Satan – by eating the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

 

Sins deemed by humanity to be harmless matters of choice is basically the worship of creation rather than worship of the Creator. Hence as in the days of Noah, humanity has no fear of any consequences by openly disregarding the statutes of the Creator.

 

Jan Brewer had good reasons to veto SB 1062. NONE of those reasons had anything to do with the direction and guidance of God Almighty. Rather here are a few of the obvious reasons dispensed by intense human pressure:

 

The marketing revenue that would flow in Arizona was threatened by both Major League Baseball (MLB), National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Football League (NFL).

 

  MLB:

 

 “As the sport of Jackie Robinson, Major League Baseball and its 30 Clubs stand united behind the principles of respect, inclusion and acceptance. Those values are fundamental to our game’s diverse players, employees and fans. We welcome individuals of different sexual orientations, races, religions, genders and national origins.

 

“MLB has a zero-tolerance policy for harassment or discrimination based on sexual orientation, as reflected by our collective bargaining agreement with the MLB Players Association. Accordingly, MLB will neither support nor tolerate any words, attitudes or actions that imperil the inclusive communities that we have strived to foster within our game.”

 

The Seattle Mariners issued an individual statement prior to the veto too, and it had an ever stronger call to action than MLB’s:

 

“The Seattle Mariners have enjoyed 37 years of spring training in Arizona. Our fans flock to Peoria for baseball in March, and have always been made to feel welcome by the businesses and good people of Arizona. This should apply to all of our fans. The Mariners respect and value diversity. We welcome fans of all races, colors, religious beliefs, nationalities, ages, and sexual orientations. We believe that intolerance has no place in our game or society. Unfortunately, Senate Bill 1062 sends a message that not everyone is welcome. We hope Governor Brewer will reject that message.”

 

NFL:

 

While no overt threat was made to yank the Super Bowl, it was clear the NFL was watching Brewer.

 

“Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement before the decision.

 

“We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so.”

 

NBA:

 

Both of Arizona’s professional basketball teams [the NBA’s Phoenix Suns and the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury] publicly called for a veto.

Large Corporations Pressure Governor Brewer

 

JP Morgan Chase

 

Go Daddy Group

 

Apple Computers

 

PetSmart

 

American Airlines

 

Southwest Airlines

 

Delta Airlines

 

Intel Corp

 

This list does not include large Arizona businesses and large business associations AND since the above article was written yesterday probably more Corporations were added.

 

Republicans in Name Only (RINO) and Establishment Republicans:

 

o   Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ)

 

o   Senator John McCain (R-AZ)

 

o   Mitt Romney (R- President Nominee 2012)

 

o   Steve Schmidt, former John McCain Senior Campaign Advisor

 

o   Matthew Dowd, Former George W Bush Campaign Strategist

 

o   Mike Murphy, GOP Political Consultant

 

o   Bob Worsley (R – State Senator initially voted for SB 1062)

 

o   Adam Driggs (R – State Senator initially voted for SB 1062)

 

o   Steve Pierce (R – State Senator initially voted for SB 1062)

 

The Power of Homosexual Activism

 

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) provides insights of the kind of Homosexual power/mafia-style oppressive measures by Homosexual Activism that is involved in pressuring Governor Brewer:

 

o   Which Will Triumph in Arizona (and the USA): Freedom or ‘Gay’ Tyranny?AFTAH; 2/26/14

 

o   ‘GAY’ POWER VS. RELIGIOUS LIBERTY;” WND.com; 11/29/13

 

 

Everything to do with power and influencing Americans from the Media, Political Power and Left Wing Secular Humanism such as Homosexual Activism; has SILENCED Christian morality in America. We live in a day that the very evilness that took over and essentially condemned the people of Canaanite heritage become displaced by Divine Ordinance that enabled the fruition of God’s Promise to Abraham for a family heritage that Believers’ in the Bible call the Promised Land, the Holy Land, the Land of Israel and so on (by the way NOT Palestine).

 

Don’t believe the fullness of the times of the Gentiles has completely arrived yet or the Pax Americana will have begun its collapse. I don’t know, maybe Americans are at the beginning of that collapse and is just awaiting the history books or the Return of Christ to record the end of the USA.

 

AND I haven’t touched on America’s Left Wing activist judiciary that has recently (again) affirmed the homosexual debauchery as normal in Adam and Steve or Adriana and Eve marriages.

Republican Party Rep Warns of Doomsday, Urges Ammo Stockpile

Republican Party Representative Matt Shea told a rally of patriots that they should stockpile weapons and ammunition in order to prepare for the “inevitable” occurrence of complete economic collapse in the United States.

Republican Party Representative Matt Shea told a rally of patriots that they should stockpile weapons and ammunition in order to prepare for the “inevitable” occurrence of complete economic collapse in the United States. “We need to prepare for the inevitable collapse that is going to happen,” Shea said. “You know it’s going to happen. That’s right, I am a politician and I am standing up here and saying that. … When it happens, we need to look at this as an opportunity, not a crisis. Whose job is liberty? That’s our job.”

 

At “The Northwest Patriot and Self-Reliance Rally” over the weekend, he began his speech with a nod to his beliefs. “It’s great to be in God’s country,” he said. “Our hope is not in man; our hope is in Jesus Christ. Amen?” The crowd answered “Amen!” just before Shea told them they should purchase thousands of rounds of ammunition and learn how to operate firearms.

 

He urged the rally participants to be ready for an altercation with the government, saying, “[B]e prepared at any given moment to give up your job to do what is right. You have to stand up for what is right – even if it means you have to stand up to your government.”

 

Shea had earlier stated that the United States government is planning to disarm all Americans and is actively building an extended network of camps. Shea was READ THE REST

Obama criticizes Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: President says ‘Keeping Up’ helps to create generation obsessed with wealth and celebrity.

 

http://social.entertainment.msn.com/tv/blogs/reality-tv-blogpost.aspx?post=f7eca2e9-ccc0-4263-8d1d-7158a41c45ac

 

 

President Barack Obama criticized Kim Kardashian and her family, saying their reality TV shows have helped create a generation of youngsters who are obsessed with wealth and celebrity. Obama singled out socialite Kim Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West for particular criticism in a Kindle Singles interview during a visit to one of Amazon’s warehouses in Tennessee. Obama bemoaned the rise of reality TV shows and insisted celebrities who parade their wealth in front of fans have inadvertently changed the aspirations of young people. 

 

He said, “The American dream involved some pretty basic stuff — a good job where you felt some security, a good education … People felt if they worked hard they could get there … I don’t think people went around saying to themselves, ‘I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house’ … I think there has also been a shift in culture. We weren’t exposed to the things we didn’t have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”  (READ ENTIRETY – if you choose to)

 

The question now becomes what is Obama trying to prepare us for by striking at the heart of Americanism????

 

[Editor: I believe Newbill’s above question is an excellent one. Obama castigates the likes of the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West over extravagant living with money they earned. That is indeed un-American. HOWEVER, the likes of Kardashian and West should not be looked upon as role models but not for the reason Obama implies. These people are not exactly model citizens in their lifestyles. President Obama that is something to criticize them about. A clean lifestyle is a good role model.]

The Benghazi Scandal has not made a Lot of Sense Until Now

The Benghazi scandal has not made a lot of sense until now.  Why would the Obama Regime spend so much time trying to cover it up?  There is one new shocking development that, if true, not only explains everything but if true, it means high ranking members of the Regime should be sent to prison.

Rodeo Clown Wearing BHO Mask

 

http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/no-way-look-whos-wearing-obama-mask-now/

 

A rodeo clown who donned a President Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair was ridiculed, called a racist and banned for life – but when a similar mask was worn by Obama himself, the audience greeted him with enthusiastic cheers.

 

After the rodeo clown wore the mask Aug. 10 and teased the crowd about a bull coming to get Obama, fair officials called his stunt “unconscionable” and vowed he would never perform again.

 

The Missouri chapter of the NAACP demanded that the U.S. Department of Justice and Secret Service launch an investigation of the clown.

 

The president of Missouri’s rodeo-clown organization resigned after the incident, and fair officials declared that all clowns would be required to attend sensitivity training.

 

The clown was accused by a spectator of turning the event into “some kind of [Klu Klux] Klan rally.”

 

Missouri’s elected officials condemned the clown’s act as (READ THE RESTNo way! Look who’s wearing Obama mask now; By Chelsea Schilling; WND; 08/15/2013 at 9:14 PM)

Why our cities are writhing in death-grip of crime, bankruptcy

http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/why-our-cities-are-self-destructing/

 

“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

 

“And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

 

“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

 

“Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

 

“So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

 

“Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” (Genesis 11:4-9 KJV)

 

There is something a little strange about big cities.

 

The enigmatic biblical story of the tower of Babel revolves around this strange something that occurs when large numbers of people come together in one place and form a great hive.

 

It’s not that something bad has to happen – it doesn’t, especially if the people governing that city are highly principled and grounded in reality. But how often does that happen?

 

What, then, is this strange “something”? It’s what happens when deceitful and power-hungry people rise to positions of power to rule over their own little “kingdom.” On a more cosmic level, one might say it’s the futility and ultimate disintegration of anything – even a great city – built as a monument to man’s greatness rather than God’s.

The central bankers/US government have taken control over Egypt. They control the military by giving them aid, they control Saudi Arabia that supports the Egyptian armed forces. This was a take over (sic) to declare martial law and a dictatorship in Egypt to protect the US dollar as the reserve currency. The economic collapse is approaching quickly this fall. Everything is being put into place for the fierce storm that is approaching.

 

Is Slowing Money Supply Signalling (sic) Another Stock Market Crash?

 

According to Austrian Business Cycle Theory, when a central bank slows its money printing that has fueled a manipulated stock market boom, the stock market is very vulnerable to a crash. Murray Rothbard in his book America’s Great Depression explained how it occurred before the October 1929 crash:

 

It is generally acknowledged that the great boom of the 1920s began around July, 1921, after a year or more of sharp recession, and ended about July, 1929.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

 

The End Times began at 12:20 p.m. Eastern today.

 

The Tocqueville Gold Fund’s John Hathaway, a thoroughly respectable member of the financial establishment who only in recent weeks has begun to acknowledge the manipulation of the gold market by Western central banks, went on CNBC’s “Fast Money” program, declared that a short squeeze is under way in gold because the paper gold market is leveraged at 100 to 1, and was not cut off.

 

Of course the CNBC “analysts” who commented following Hathaway’s remarks completely missed the substance of what he said. Real financial journalism has not descended upon the West quite yet. But if reality about gold can come frankly out of Hathaway’s mouth and be spread throughout the world by CNBC, are even Reuters, Bloomberg News, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and the Financial Times still safe for the Federal Reserve and Wall Street and their scheme of gold price suppression and currency market rigging?

X22 Warning Report! Economic Collapse Countdown Has Begun

As awakened Americans await the economic collapse that we all know now we’ll be unable to avoid, the question has to be asked, has it already begun? This X22 Report examines this prospect closely and the facts before our eyes might lead all of us to believe that indeed, the economic collapse is already here, the countdown has begun. Back in 2008, Congressman Brad Sherman warned that if a bailout package was not passed, martial law would be declared in America. That video is the 2nd video below. Is this what all of the military preparation around the country is all about? It appears that we are now running out of time.

 

From X22: The central bankers/US government have taken control over Egypt. They control the military by giving them aid, they control Saudi Arabia that supports the Egyptian armed forces. This was a take over (sic) to declare martial law and a dictatorship in Egypt to protect the US dollar as the reserve currency. The economic collapse is approaching quickly this fall.

Is the Obama Doctrine the Rise of Netocracy??

8/19/2013 9:55 AM

 

Going around Congress with spending like Solyndra and many many other fascist operations that donated back lots of the funding to campaigns   and buying favors like waving taxes for Special Interests like for Obamacare is also why we see this Nation dissolving into a  Netocracy …. netocracy refers to a perceived global upper-class that bases its power on a technological advantage and networking skills, in comparison to what is portrayed as a bourgeoisie of a gradually diminishing importance.

 

See when we really look at what Obama and his Oligarchy Administration are entrenched in this Technology Rooted Global Upper Class telling the Bourgeoise (sic) Middle Class he’s looking out for them he actually has them in a Holding pattern while the Netocracy is growing stronger under his regime with the end runs around Congress and the Trillions that he and the Federal Reserve have been spilling out into the Netocracy Sphere of the rise of this super power Globalist Class that has consolidated all the wealth and resources.

 

It’s perfect for controlling the rate of social consumption of the majority of people on earth, the main goal of these Globalists who are also the Netocracy Environmentalist crowd.

  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netocracy

 

Netocracy was a term invented by the editorial board of the American technology magazine Wired in the early 1990s. A portmanteau of Internet and aristocracy, netocracy refers to a perceived global upper-class that bases its power on a technological advantage and networking skills, in comparison to what is portrayed as a bourgeoisie of a gradually diminishing importance.

 

The concept was later picked up by the Swedish philosophers Alexander Bard and Jan Söderqvist for their book Netocracy — The New Power Elite and Life After Capitalism (originally published in Swedish in 2000 as Nätokraterna – boken om det elektroniska klassamhället, published in English by Reuters/Pearsall UK in 2002).

 

The netocracy concept has been compared with Richard Florida‘s concept of the creative class. Bard and Söderqvist have also defined an under-class in opposition to the netocracy, which they refer to as the consumtariat.

[Editor: This “Netocracy” is a new term to me. Since the concept is based on a book published in 2000 that makes me an Internet dinosaur. You can tell by the wording in Wikipedia the netocracy concept is a Marxist updated utopianism rolled over into the information age. Clearly netocracy is anti-Democracy (in the representative sense – perhaps Representative Republic best describes the USA) and anti-Capitalism (anti-Free Market, anti-laissez-faire {which is extreme Capitalism}, anti-Free Enterprise etc.). Netocracy in essence replaces a democratic-republican power structure with whatever Network Collective controls or has the best information with the goal of enhancing that particular Network Collective.

 

People like me that believe in individual rights and Liberty would be relegated to second class citizens stripped of the viability of property and entrepreneurial social-interpersonal relationships that involved human contact. The challenge for the Liberty-minded if the Information age via the Internet redefines social interaction is a way to maintain the protection of Property Rights, Individual Rights, Family Values (in my case Christian Values) and the right to be interpersonal rather than virtual.

 

Netocracy as envisioned by it developers socially and politically will develop into a hierarchal dictatorship in which the people at the top of the virtual pyramid will maintain an elitism within a Network not allowing achievement to allow for upward mobility.

 

Frankly lovers of the U.S. Constitution should not rail against the future of a pervasive Information but rather embrace the Network concept but apply the Network to a people that have an association based on laws rather than the monopoly of information that controls the ruling apparatus. A Republic of laws will always trump the fiat of an elitist collective. HERE is a great link explaining the socio-political nature of netocracy. The explanation is netocracy friendly.]

American Dream Dying Under Obama

Sent: 8/19/2013 4:43 PM

 

Dear Barack Obama is the American dream dying under your Policies?

 

http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/american-dream-dying-under-obama/

 

NEW YORK – Are you better off today economically than you were when President Obama took office in January 2009?

 

That question remains the litmus test for electoral politics as the U.S. prepares to move into the 2014 mid-term election cycle.

 

The economic scorecard for President Obama continues to provide reasons for alarm, despite Obama’s renewed attempt to emphasize yet again the plight of the U.S. economy and decline of the middle class.

 

Amid the most massive welfare state ever created in human history, four of five U.S. adults struggle with joblessness, near poverty, or reliance for at least part of their lives, according to a recent Associated Press report.

 

 

Even Obama-supporting Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has acknowledged that terms such as “modest recovery,” “slow recovery” or even “recession” do not describe the economic malaise experienced under Obama’s presidency.

 

Arguing that the U.S. is in a “low-grade” depression, the liberal economist wrote July 5 that the U.S. economy may have entered “permanent stagnation,” a situation in which “high unemployment could become accepted as the new normal.”

 

Economist Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital and author of the 2012 bestseller “The Real Crash: America’s Coming Bankruptcy – How to Save Yourself and Your Country” is even less sanguine.

 

Schiff believes it makes no difference whether Obama replaces Ben Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve with Fed vice chair Janet Yellen, who favors continuing the Fed’s quantitative easing policy, or with former Obama economic adviser Larry Summers, who wants to end it.

 

“I think the U.S. economy is in trouble regardless of who President Obama chooses, because it’s going to be more of the same policies that have brought the country to the brink of economic ruin,” Schiff said this week.

 

WND’s independent investigation of 10 key economic measures confirms that economic conditions for millions of Americans have deteriorated substantially under the Obama administration.
