Matthew 11:15-27 - At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee,
O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the
wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it
seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no
man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the
Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Our eternal
challenge John 1:1-14: "He was in the world, and the world was made by
Him, and the world knew Him not. He came unto His own and His received Him not.
But as may as received Him, to then gave He power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on His name; which were born not of blood, nor of the
will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made
flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
"But your iniquities have
separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you,
that he will not hear."
"[T]he success of the usurpation will depend on the executive
and judiciary departments, which are to expound and give effect
to the legislative acts; and in a last resort a remedy must be
obtained from the people, who can by the elections of more
faithful representatives, annul the acts of the usurpers."

Address to the Military, 1798 - “We have no government armed
with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled
by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or
gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution
as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only
for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the
government of any other.”

Alexander Tytler? - "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover
that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the

with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose
fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship."

RELIGIOUS LEFT CONTINUES TO GET IT WRONG - BY
BILL MUEHLENBERG - The
difference between Christians on the left and right side of politics is fairly
pronounced. While we are all one in Christ, unfortunately, there are plenty of
areas of disagreement that can be found amongst believers. As I have written
elsewhere, biblical Christianity ultimately transcends mere partisan politics,
but we still live in the real world, and we will still find ourselves differing
on many political and social issues. For more on that, see here: Religion
and the Political Spectrum.
And these differences are often not so much on the issues
themselves, but how we best deal with them. That is, both sides rightly care
about things like poverty. But they come up with quite different solutions to
the problem. For example, the religious left usually looks to socialist or
statist solutions, while the religious right usually opts for a free market
approach. Not only must these two approaches be assessed in terms of how they
might or might not line up with Scripture, but they also should be assessed in
terms of their efficacy. Do such proposals actually work? Do these preferred
solutions actually help the problem, or make things worse? I speak to this
further here: Christians
and Foreign Aid.
Here I want to return to the big bang which occurred recently
because of the incredibly bad decision making of the US World Vision. First they
basically approved of homosexuality, then because of public pressure, they
backflipped and went into damage control. I have already written extensively
about all that.
But what this messy affair did once again highlight was the major differences
between the religious left and the religious right. The lefties of course
generally don’t have a problem with things like homosexuality, so they tended to
support the original WV decision.
Conservatives on the other hand not only were greatly concerned
about this rejection of God’s express commands about human sexuality, but the
general leftist direction of this once great organization. So all sorts of
debate erupted over all this, including plenty of fuzzy thinking from the left.
They came up with the usual silliness that we of a more
conservative stance don’t care about the poor, and are hung up on issues of
“personal morality” – things like homosexuality, abortion and the like. Consider
what one religious lefty and WV defender had to say in this regard. He attacked
conservative Christians this way: However, they pulled out of giving to
the poor as well, because that is what their religious culture expected as soon
as gay marriage came into play. So what does gay marriage have to do with
feeding the hungry, the poor, the children?
Now this is a pretty dumb comment, for a number of reasons. What is
that about a “religious culture”? Excuse me, but how about simply taking
seriously what God has revealed about his purposes for human sexuality? It is
not some “religious culture” that is moving us here, but the clear teachings of
Scripture on the issue of homosexuality.
o Patriots' Day - The Roots
of the First American Revolution - By Mark Alexander - “If ye love wealth
better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of
freedom, go from us in peace. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may
posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!” –Samuel Adams (1776) ...Each year
on April 19th, we honor the anniversary of Patriots' Day and the legacy of
Liberty launched that day, which is our inspiration to this day. In doing so, we
mark the opening salvo of the first American Revolution in 1775, and the first
step toward the establishment of an eternal declaration of human Liberty,
subordinating the rule of men to
Creator-inspired Rule of Law.
A quick search of Barack Hussein
Obama’s White House website reveals not a single reference to this most
notable date in the history of our nation. Undoubtedly the statist
regime currently occupying the Executive Branch prefers to ignore this
formative event, as the historic
call to arms ultimately turned back a growing tide of tyranny. I invite you
to share this brief treatise on the roots of the First American Revolution.
New Emails Show Lois Lerner Was in Contact With DOJ About Prosecuting Tax Exempt
Groups - By Katie
Pavlich - According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of
Information Act request from Judicial
Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner was in
contact with the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt
groups could be criminally prosecuted for "lying" about political activity. "I
got a call today from Richard Pilger Director Elections Crimes Branch at DOJ ...
He wanted to know who at IRS the DOJ folk s [sic] could talk to about Sen.
Whitehouse idea at the hearing that DOJ could piece together false statement
cases about applicants who "lied" on their 1024s --saying they weren't planning
on doing political activity, and then turning around and making large visible
political expenditures. DOJ is feeling like it needs to respond, but want to
talk to the right folks at IRS to see whether there are impediments from our
side and what, if any damage this might do to IRS programs. I told him that
sounded like we might need several folks from IRS," Lerner wrote in a May
8, 2013 email to former Nikole C. Flax, who was former-Acting IRS
Commissioner Steven T. Miller's chief of staff. "I think we should do it – also
need to include CI [Criminal Investigation Division], which we can help
coordinate. Also, we need to reach out to FEC. Does it make sense to consider
including them in this or keep it separate?" Flax
on May 9, 2013.

6 signs that you’re a liberal who is out of touch with reality - By Brian
1. You think that George W. Bush caused the recent recession You’ve
probably heard the narrative promoted by the wigglejaws on MSNBC: George W. Bush
caused that terrible recession that we just experienced! Really? What, pray
tell, did George W. Bush do to cause that recession? His signature economic
legislation, including the Bush tax cuts, was passed in 2001. More tax cuts were
passed in 2003. How did either of these laws cause a recession which began in
2007? The fact is this: a bunch of banks made stupid real estate loans. The real
estate market crashed, and everything went sour. George W. Bush had nothing to
do with it.
2. You get your news from Jon Stewart. Jon Stewart is a funny guy.
That’s the problem if you get your news from him. He’s a funny guy. He’s not a
news anchor. He pretends to be one, of course, but that’s part of the act. Maybe
you should consider getting your news from a news source instead of a comedian.
3. You watch MSNBC. Maybe we should clarify the point that we just
made above. If you give up watching Jon Stewart and switch to MSNBC, you’re
basically just watching a 24-hour version of Jon Stewart without the comedy.
Watch a legitimate news source.
4. You’re still concerned about institutional racism. A black man
is in the White House and Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire. Really, what are you
5. You think that raising taxes improves the economy. Some liberals
sputter the following nonsense: “Bill Clinton raised taxes back in the 1990′s
and look how good the economy was back then!” It is true that Bill Clinton
raised marginal tax rates, he was also a tax cutter. In fact, Bill Clinton cut
taxes on the rich by eliminating the Luxury Tax. Bill Clinton cut the capital
gains tax. Bill Clinton implemented welfare reform. There are several reasons
that the economy was great back in the 1990′s. Raising taxes wasn’t one of them.
6. You’re surprised that regulations on insurance companies are
causing them to raise their premiums. If you’re an out-of-touch liberal, you
probably think it’s pretty cool that ObamaCare mandates that insurance companies
are required to cover “children” up to 26 years old. It may surprise you to
learn, however, that the additional coverage is actually going to cost insurance
companies money. And how will they raise that money? They’ll raise premiums, of
course. Really. You didn’t see this coming?
o NAZIS, AMERICAN
STYLE Exclusive: 'Obama has decided it's good to be the dictator' - By BURT
PRELUTSKY - Still, there are people who insist that if you oppose Obama’s
agenda, it means you’re a racist. A sane person just wants to shake them until
the marbles in their head sound like castanets. Do they actually believe that if
a white person – say Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton – had given us five years of
rising debt, a stagnant economy, coddled our enemies, betrayed our allies and
saddled us with a disastrous health care plan, we’d be donning our party hats
and dancing in the streets? On the other hand, if Obama weren’t black, would so
many Americans have ignored his promise in 2008 to destroy the oil and coal
industries and to redistribute our wealth in ways reminiscent of Lenin and
Stalin? Also, if he weren’t black, wouldn’t his vow to personally lower the
ocean and heal the planet have been viewed as the ravings of a madman?
...In 2008, I wrote that the homosexuals who were invading church
services and threatening those who had merely taken advantage of their First
Amendment rights were not only fascist thugs, but cowards. I came to that
conclusion because although the vote was fairly even among whites, the reason
Prop 8 passed was because the black vote was overwhelmingly in favor of the
bill. And yet, for all their moral outrage, the gays didn’t dare disrupt
services in a black church or confront black business owners for fear of the
physical consequences. No matter how often they get their way because of gutless
judges and legislators, liberals are never content to rest on their laurels.
Whether the issue is same sex marriage, abortions or unions, leftists never
leave their jackboots at home. For instance, simply because Gov. Scott Walker
had the temerity to oppose ever-increasing pensions for Wisconsin’s public
service unions, he, his wife and his children all received death threats.
o 86M Full-Time Private-Sector
Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers - By Terence
Jeffrey - 86,429,000. That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up
every morning and went to work -- in the private sector -- and did it week after
week after week. ... The liberal media has not made them famous like the polar
bear, but they are truly a threatened species. It is not a rancher with a few
hundred head of cattle that is attacking their habitat, nor an energy company
developing a fossil fuel. It is big government and its primary weapon -- an
ever-expanding welfare state. ... All told ... there were 151,014,000 who
'received benefits from one or more programs' in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Subtract the 3,212,000 veterans, who served their country in the most profound
way possible, and that leaves 147,802,000 non-veteran benefit takers. ... As
more baby boomers retire, and as Obamacare comes fully online ... the number of
takers will inevitably expand. And the number of full-time private-sector
workers might also contract. Eventually, there will be too few carrying too
many, and America will break.
Islam, 'Honor' Violence, and the Silence of the Progressives - By
Jeff Jacoby - "HONOR
DIARIES" might not be coming to a theater near you, at least not if CAIR gets
its way. The award-winning documentary about
"honor" violence against girls and women in much of the Muslim world was
released last month in honor of International Women's Day, and it didn't take
long for the Council on American Islamic Relations to slap its all-purpose
"Islamophobic!" label on it. The film has been shown in dozens of venues,
but CAIR has raised enough of a stink to get screenings cancelled on several
college campuses, including the
University of Michigan and the University of Illinois.
CAIR — a front
group for Islamist extremism that masquerades as a civil rights organization
(its first executive director, Nihad Awad, was an open supporter of Hamas) — is
good at raising stinks. Last week Brandeis University caved in to demands that
its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a heroic defender of
women's rights in the Islamic world. With a
life story that reads like a screenplay, Ali has personally experienced many
of the evils she fights, including genital mutilation, forced marriage, and
savage "honor" crimes. Her remarkable accomplishments should easily merit the
honor of any university that upholds reason and intellectual diversity. But
Brandeis apparently has different priorities now, like giving CAIR
and the Islamophobia-phobes a veto over honorary degrees.
...Why aren't more progressives passionate about these issues?
I put that question to Nazie
Eftekhari, an immigrant from Iran and another of the women "Honor Diaries"
focuses on. A successful Minnesota health-care entrepreneur, Eftekhari
unhesitatingly describes herself as a "bleeding-heart liberal" and a longtime
Democratic Party voter, loyalist, and fund-raiser. She is as mystified as I am.
"The biggest human-rights crisis of our generation is the treatment of women in
Muslim-majority countries, and we've applied a gag order to ourselves," she
replies with unmistakable distress. "We won't talk about it. Where are my fellow
liberals? Where are the feminists?"
In theocratic Iran today, Eftekhari says, the legal age of marriage
for girls has been lowered
to 9. Men can now marry their adopted
daughters. "How can President Obama, who has two young daughters, not be
making a huge issue of this?" she wants to know. "It's not marriage, it's
Eftekhari can't understand why so many progressive voices fall
silent on an issue she thinks they should be raising the loudest. And she has
only contempt for anyone who thinks it progressive to snub those — like Ayaan
Hirsi Ali — who so bravely speak out: "Ali needs no degree or honor from
Brandeis; she is a guiding light for the women who respect and honor her. But
where will Brandeis go to getits respect and honor back?"

WATCH: Foundry’s Genevieve Wood Demolishes White House’s Wage Gap Argument -
By Katrina Trinko
- In a CNN appearance today, Genevieve Wood, senior contributor to The Foundry,
blasted the White House for promoting the myth that women are paid significantly
less than men because of their sex, rather than their career or life choices.
“Instead of celebrating” that men and women with similar jobs and levels of
education make around the same, “the White House wants to portray this ‘war on
women,’” Wood said on The Lead. “Young women today in metropolitan areas, for
example, who are childless, single, young women are actually outperforming males
in that same category all over the country,”
Wood said in her appearance with former White House
communications director Anita Dunn. “But the problem with that is, they hear
this kind of rhetoric that discourages young women.” “It makes them have a lack
of confidence,” Wood added, “and frankly, prevents them from doing the one thing
that would get them where they need to be, which is have the confidence to ask
for a raise, to ask for the right starting salary. We ought to be celebrating
where women are.”
The Hillary Lying Virus Starts to Spread - by Geoffrey
G. Fisher - “You know, I’m not sitting here like some little woman standing
by my man, like Tammy
Wynette,” Hillary said in 1992. That’s right Hillary, at least Tammy
Wynette was genuine. And we are all familiar with Hillary’s corkscrew landing
into Bosnia dodging sniper fire on a mission that was so secretive, it never
happened. Her response to being caught was, “I misspoke.”
...The original carriers of the lying virus among baby boomers were
the Clintons. Bill was first with his profession of fidelity towards his
wife but that wore off as soon as Hillary started tripping over Bill’s conquests
at the Executive Mansion in Little Rock, Arkansas. But she also become
infected, and proved to have contracted a more virulent strain of this
affliction. Hillary becoming a modern day “Typhoid Mary” is a tragedy since her
parents sent a brainy, blonde-haired, blue-eye doe to Wellesley College in the
summer of 1965 only to have a ruthless creature emerge four years later ready to
deceive the world for her own personal ambitions. Today’s pandemic is not
biological but rather cultural. A true medical crisis like the Influenza
Pandemic of 1918-1919 killed approximately 30 million people, more than died in
WWI. Yet, the current Hillary pandemic may leave a more permanent mark on
our nation if it is not eradicated soon.
House Oversight GOP: Democrat Rep. Cummings behind IRS probe of True the Vote
- By Todd Beamon - Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform
Committee accused the panel's senior Democrat on Wednesday of spurring the IRS
investigation of True the Vote after the group filed its application for
tax-exempt status in 2010. Rep. Darrell Issa, the panel's chairman, released
emails showing that staff working for the ranking member, Rep. Elijah
Cummings of Maryland, had communicated multiple times with the Houston-based
group between August 2012 and last year.
Lawmakers line up behind plan that dumps Electoral College without
constitutional amendment - By AARON
KLEIN - The National Popular Vote effort, which could see the 14 states with
the largest populations decide the presidency, is more than halfway to its goal
of legally bypassing the Electoral College established in the Constitution.
...The NPV campaign seeks to obtain the consent of the majority of the 538 votes
in the Electoral College to award its electoral votes to the winner of the
national popular vote. Now 10 jurisdictions possessing 136 electoral votes are
part of the plan, just over half of the 270 electoral votes needed to bring the
National Popular Vote interstate compact into effect. The states will not be
required to award their electoral votes to the national popular vote winner
until the NPV has signed up enough states to garner 270 electoral votes. The NVP
effort is fully partnered with a George Soros-funded election group, as
WND was first to report.
...The NPV is run by individuals with a history of support for the
Democratic Party, WND found. The Founding Fathers firmly rejected a purely
popular vote to elect the president, because they wanted to balance the power of
the larger and smaller states. The Electoral College was fashioned as a
compromise between an election of the president by direct popular vote and
election by Congress. Now the NPV effort could change the way Americans elect
the president without amending the U.S. Constitution. The plan simply requires
that enough states join through votes in their legislatures along with
gubernatorial approval. It takes two-thirds of both the House and Senate to pass
a constitutional amendment to repeal the Electoral College.
To bypass the constitutional amendment process, NPV minimizes the
number of states that would need to agree. Instead, once enough states agree to
allot their electoral votes to the national popular vote winner, the Electoral
College becomes irrelevant. With the addition of Rhode Island to the NPV effort,
the pact now has nine states plus the District of Columbia for a total of 136 of
the 270 electoral votes needed. The other states signed up are Hawaii, Illinois,
Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington, Vermont and California. NPV is
partnered with FairVote, a project of the Soros-funded Center for Voting and
Democracy that advocates for a national popular vote for president. (See also:

The Real ‘Divergents’: Young Adults Lead Defense of Traditional Marriage -
by JONATHAN LIEDL - Millennials support God’s plan for family life at events, as
well as through outreach and example. ...From college campuses to city centers,
young adults are defying their peers and standing up for the Catholic conception
of marriage, through their words and their example, bucking dominant cultural
trends. Michael Bradley is one of the emerging leaders of this “resistance
movement.” While many of his fellow students were out celebrating St. Patrick’s
Day in a decidedly un-Catholic fashion, the University of Notre Dame senior was
leading an event that would make the non-Irish eyes of Ireland’s patron saint
smile: a conference devoted to the Catholic understanding of marriage.
Make-up Sex Between Hillary and the Main Stream Media Has Begun - By Rodney
Lee Conover - Did you hear about it? Hillary Clinton and the
Mainstream Media are getting back together! If you think the press was in the
tank for candidate Barack Obama, brace yourself for will be the most
unrestrained, duplicitous and sloppiest session of make-up sex the history of
love affairs has ever known…
...Oh, who am I kidding – you probably know Hillary
and the Mainstream Media already got back together – it’s not like I’m
making some wild or brilliant prediction or anything. A good example is the
deafening silence from the major media on what would be an explosive piece on
political corruption linking former acting CIA chief Mike Morell’s incredible
luck in private-sector employment to his equally incredible recent Benghazi hearing
...former acting CIA Director Mike Morell testifies to the House
Intelligence Committee it was he who changed the Benghazi talking
points, removing references to al Qaeda, “Islamic” militants and leaving out
that most on the ground believed it was terrorists. Morell originally told
Senators that it was the FBI, not himself at the CIA who changed the talking
points, so he either lied at that time or lied under oath later. He then
admitted removing evidence the CIA had warned the State Department prior to
9-11-12 of probable terrorist attacks on Benghazi. Yikes! Is it me, or does that
make Hillary look bad? As in, not fit to be Secretary of State, Commander in
Chief or even competent to play “Battleship” with my eight-year-old nephew?
Sharyl Attkisson, reporting on the hearings, says Morell went
against his own agency on this point in defense of Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton’s State Department. Ms. Attkisson was frozen out of reporting on
Benghazi by CBS News – but big deal, right? Hey – whatever – she’s a right
winger, bla bla…
Well, what is former acting CIA Director Mike Morell doing now? I’ll give you a
hint: He retired from the CIA soon after his original explanations of Benghazi,
shielding then Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton from her abject incompetency and public statements, gave cover to
her bizarre hearing (‘What difference does it make?’) testimony and put distance
between the murders and the 2012 re-election of Barack Obama.
Morell received several job offers and accepted more than one… Have
you guessed? Exactly who is this babe on the cover of Vogue? Michael J. Morell
is now a “national security analyst” for: CBS News! That’s right – the same CBS
News that got rid of Sharyl Attkisson for doggedly reporting on the Benghazi
But that’s not all – with your editing of talking points, lying under oath
(alleged!) and throwing your own agency under the bus to protect the Secretary
of State who would be President – you’ll also get a book deal and a fantastic
job at something called: “Beacon Global Strategies.” What is Beacon Global
Strategies, you ask? It’s a “strategic advisory firm” founded by Hillary
Clinton’s close friend (and longtime spokesperson) Phillippe Reines, who
traveled to over 110 countries with the then-Secretary of State as part of her
senior team. Just a coincidence, I guess.
o Americans are
drowning in lies - By Alan
Caruba - In the April 1st edition of The Wall Street Journal, an
editorial took note of President Obama's announcement the previous day that
sign-ups for Obamacare had passed seven million. "Suddenly ObamaCare is a
roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim
to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least
the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year." I usually
don't quote from other newspapers for the simple reason that most just repeat
Obama's lies. To an old journalist, that's very depressing. It's depressing,
too, to contemplate the list of Obama administration scandals, not the least of
which is the September 11, 2012 attack on our Benghazi consulate that took the
life of a U.S. ambassador and three security personnel. The claim that it was a
spontaneous response to a video has been completely discredited.
...What historians will likely find astonishing is the way
Hillary Clinton is the only person mentioned as the Democratic Party candidate
for President in the 2016 elections. I find it distressing that former Governor
Jeb Bush is being touted as the Republican choice. With the exception of Obama
who defeated Hillary in the 2008 primaries, the U.S. has had a Bush or Clinton
as President since 1989. We fought a Revolution to rid ourselves of such
monarchies or in this case political dynasties. There's something fundamentally
wrong with such lines of succession, but worse is the notion that the Democratic
Party would even consider someone – Hillary Clinton – whose character, let alone
her policies, have been so seriously flawed and documented for so long.
Hazlitt - "The whole gospel of Karl Marx can be summed up in a single
sentence: Hate the man who is better off than you are. Never under any
circumstances admit that his success may be due to his own efforts, to the
productive contribution he has made to the whole community. Always attribute his
success to the exploitation, the cheating, the more or less open robbery of
others. Never under any circumstances admit that your own failure may be owing
to your own weakness, or that the failure of anyone else may be due to his own
defects - his laziness, incompetence, improvidence, or stupidity."
o What Qualifies Hillary?
The panel of pundits on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” considered the question of the
2016 presidential election: What makes Hillary Clinton the most qualified person
to be president? As the panel discussed Hillary's looming candidacy,

o Holder Blasts 'Divisive
Adversity' (PatriotPost.us) -
A visibly angered Eric Holder spoke before Al Sharpton's National Action Network
conference and blasted the “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive
adversity” he's had to deal with as attorney general. “What attorney general has
ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?” he asked, referring to
Wednesday's heated House hearing. “What president has ever had to deal with that
kind of treatment?” Well, writes National Review's Andrew Johnson, “Bush-era
attorney general Alberto Gonzales faced calls for his impeachment during his
time in the office.” Likewise, Reagan's AG Edwin Meese faced heavy contempt from
Democrats. More to the point, Holder and Obama are two of the most divisive
political figures in American history with their complete disregard for Rule of
Law. That's hardly “unwarranted” adversity, and both should be thankful they
haven't been impeached. Holder's insinuation that the treatment is race-based is
absurd and outrageous.
WE LOST TRUE NORTH: THE EPIDEMIC OF VIOLENCE IN THE U.S. NOT CAUSED BY GUNS OR
KNIVES -By DEACON KEITH
FOURNIER - A high school and an army base; places which should be known as
places of safety, were turned into killing fields. A nation pauses, grieves and
seeks to make sense of what seems to be a growing epidemic of violence. Efforts
to point to guns as the cause of the problems at Fort Hood had become the
rallying cry among some lawmakers. However, now the weapon was knives. So far,
no-one has called for banning or restricting knives.
That is because this is not about guns or knives. We have lost our
true north as a nation. Finding true north is indispensable for navigating on
land, sea or air. That is why the expression is a metaphor. It is often used in
self-improvement books or books on spirituality which seek to help the reader
find meaning, purpose and direction in life.
We must again find our true north as a nation if we want to find
the path to take out of this present darkness. That will require us to once
again embrace the core conviction that every single human life has dignity.
Human persons are created in the image of God. They have an inherent dignity
precisely because of that fact — at every age and stage of their lives. This
conviction once informed the moral infrastructure of the United States and the
This respect for every human life is grounded in the Jewish and
Christian vision of the dignity of every human person. It once inspired us to
hold a respect for every human life, whether that life be found in the first
home of the womb, a wheelchair, a jail cell, a hospital room, a hospice, a
senior center, a soup kitchen or on a refugee boat, as our highest public good.
...Some profound words were spoken by a little nun from India at
the 1994 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. Her name was Mother
Teresa. They need to be heard again in this hour of reflection. She spoke from a
podium where her small stature could barely be seen. The power of those words
caused the assembly of powerful people to sit in silence: "I feel that the
greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the
child — a direct killing of the innocent child — murder by the mother herself.
And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell
other people not to kill one another?"

These are the four people who control the legislation in the Mass. House of
Representatives. They have the power to make this move very quickly -- or not at
all. They NEED to hear from you.
Talking points for politicians - for calling or emailing:
(It is good to have a copy of the bill in
front of you for reference.)
1. HD 4212 needs to be passed NOW. It can’t wait and linger in committee. Don’t
let this girl die in DCF custody.
2. You are in the leadership. You can get this out of committee, on to the
floor, and to the Senate.
3. This is NOT the “resolution”
HD 4157 by Reps. Lombardo and Lyons that was filed in March. This is
completely different. It orders that Justina be freed immediately to the custody
of her parents. That’s what must be done.
4. It is not acceptable to give Justina to the custody of bureaucrats in
Connecticut, and put her and her family through more physical and emotional
trauma. She must be freed.
5. If there are particular issues with the text of the bill, that can be fixed.
6. There is no reason this can't be done quickly. The recent “upskirt”

ARE THE BAD GUYS GETTING PANICKY? - By
LEE DUIGON - “Using
technology wisely,” blathers Humanist Manifesto II (see
Humanism Humanist Manifesto II), one of the sacred scriptures of the ruling
class, politicians and scientists can and will create an earthly paradise. If
only we’d give up such antiquated, perverse luxuries as Christianity and limited
government! Don’t we understand that these people are infinitely wiser than we
can ever be? But that’s because those pesky critics are fooling us. Take them
out of the picture, goes the Manifesto—how come left-wing dorks always have a
“manifesto”?—and the rest of us will soon bow to the superior wisdom of our
betters and let them run our lives.
Do we detect a note of panic here? Has it dawned on them that,
although many of us are flabby and uninspired Christians, we’re not about to
give it up on their say-so? That, although many of us make but rare use of our
liberty, we want to keep it? They are perplexed by our lack of enthusiasm for
their vision. It really bugs them that their arguments make such little
headway—even with all the nooze media, Hollywood, and the massive monolith of
public education on their side. You’d think they’d win it in a walkover: they
certainly think so. Hobby Lobby, Chick-Fil-A, a handful of malcontents in
Congress, a few pro-family organizations, and a rag-tag Continental Army crew of
bloggers and talk radio hosts stubbornly resist Global Warming, gender choice,
“gay rights,” and the rest of it. And the only answer The Wise can come up with
is to throw ‘em all in jail? How can such inconsequential opposition halt the
march of progress?
I comfort myself with the conviction that God is on His throne in
heaven, the earth belongs to Him, and He will keep His promises—which do not
include allowing the wicked to triumph forever. It’s also encouraging to think
that, if this small opposition that they face today can give them this much
trouble, what will happen when the whole world rises up against them? As surely,
as inevitably, it will.
o Another Report Debunking
'Global Warming' (PatriotPost.us) - In January's State
of the Union Address, Barack Obama declared, “The debate is settled. Climate
change is a fact.” In February, John Kerry followed up by saying, “In a sense,
climate change can now be considered another weapon of mass destruction, perhaps
even the world's most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” Hillary Clinton
couldn't be left out, adding, “Climate change is a national security problem,
not just an environmental problem.” And that's not to mention the incessant
droning of Al Gore.
The Cato Institute's Roger Pilon, however, threw cold water on
them, saying, “The dirty little secret is that we are now at 17 years and eight
months of no global warming. Their models have failed year in year out.” Perhaps
that's why climate alarmists have virtually stopped calling it “global warming”
and opt instead for the more vague “climate change.”
Indeed, a new comprehensive report, “Climate
Change Reconsidered II,” from the Nongovernmental International Panel on
Climate Change, concludes that climate change has far more to do with natural
temperature cycles than manmade pollutants. Of course, that stands in stark
contrast to the “official” UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change global
warming report, which concludes, again, that climate change is real and very
dangerous. Of course the UN's IPCC conclusions have more to do with their
political agenda than climate
The NIPCC report, on the other hand, finds three basic things:
Warming from greenhouse gases will be so negligible that discerning it from
natural variations will be rather difficult; the effects of rising CO2 levels
has been mostly positive for plants, animals and humans; and finally, the
exceedingly high cost of “doing something” about all this through heavy-handed
government regulation isn't worth it. Just remember, though, “the debate is

(PatriotPost.us) - The effects of man-made global warming are reaching epic
proportions. Just how bad has it gotten? Consider this: The Great Lakes
are still 52.9% ice-covered, which is 1,000%
above the average. Dating back to 1980, no other year comes even close.
to NOAA measurements, “Global Sea Ice Extent is 959,000 above the 1981-2010
mean. That is ranked 4th for the day. And that is 4.61% above 'normal.'”
Additionally, “Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is 1,403,000 above the 1981-2010 mean.
That is ranked 1st for the day. And that is 23.74% above 'normal.'” It's also
this young year's 30th daily record. Clearly, we've got work to do. Like
stocking up on blankets.
Robin Stirs up Nest on County Prayer (FRC.org) What's in a name? An awful
lot, a judge says, if it's Jesus's. The courts decide a lot of things, but they
won't have the final judgment on prayer! That's what Maryland Commissioner Robin
Bartlett Frazier made clear last month after a judge put the brakes on opening
Carroll County meetings in Jesus's name. After the American Humanist Association
sued, a judge issued an injunction barring the county from offering sectarian
prayers before conducting county business.
Two days later, Robin prayed anyway. "I'm willing to go to jail for

believe that our rights come from God, we cease to be America. We've been told
to be careful. But we're going to be careful all the way to communism if we
don't start standing up and saying 'no,'" she said. Isn't that refreshing? After
watching so many politicians tuck tail and run, Robin Frazier is standing up to
these black-robed bullies! Obviously, we need to respect the courts and the rule
of law, but there are times when we need to push back on a government that's out
of control. We can all learn something from Robin Frazier: bowing to God is more
important than bowing to political correctness.
o 'Standing on the Throat of Our
Economy' (PatriotPost.us) - It's no secret that Democrats want to raise the
minimum wage this election year, or that they think it's a winning issue. So it
was no surprise to hear Rep. George Miller (D-CA) blasting Republicans: “So what
are the Republicans doing when they won't vote for the minimum wage?” he asked.
“They're standing on the throat of our economy. Because the economy is sluggish
and your wages are the key to the recovery, we have to increase those wages.”
Actually, raising the minimum wage would hurt the economy, the reason why
Republicans oppose it. The CBO says it will destroy
500,000 jobs and cost the
economy $15 billion. In fact, 500
economists have urged Congress to not raise it by the proposed 40%. So who's
standing on the throat of our economy?
A Halo for Selfishness - By
Thomas Sowell - Those
unfamiliar with political rhetoric may not know that "special interests" mean
people who support your opponents. One's own organized supporters -- such as
labor unions supporting President Obama -- are never called "special interests."
...What Congressional Democrats and Republicans have in common is that they are
all incumbents, and they all want to keep their jobs. Publicity is necessary to
win elections, and incumbents get millions of dollars' worth of free publicity
from the media. Incumbents can all pontificate in Congress and be covered by
C-SPAN. They can get interviewed on network television, have their pictures in
the newspapers, and send out mail to their constituents back home -- and none of
this costs them a dime.
...Everything members of Congress do is done with an eye toward
re-election. Any outsider who wants to challenge an incumbent at the next
Congressional election has to pay hard cash to buy ads and arrange other forms
of publicity, in order just to get some comparable amount of name-recognition,
so as to have any serious chance of winning an election against an incumbent.
Few people have the kind of money it takes for such a campaign, so they have to
raise money -- in the millions of dollars -- to pay for what incumbents get free
of charge. Campaign finance laws that restrict who can contribute how much
money, who can run political ads, etc., are all restrictions on political
challengers who have to buy their own publicity.
...The very high rate of incumbent re-elections, even while polls
show the public disgusted with Congress in general, shows how well incumbents
are protected. The media are accessories to this scam. So long as the
information and opinions that reach the public are selected by mainstream media
people, whom polls show to be overwhelmingly on the left, the left's view of the
world prevails. Hence the great alarm in the media, and in equally one-sided
academia, over the emergence of conservative talk radio programs and the Fox
News Channel on television. No longer can the three big broadcast television
networks determine what the public will and will not see, nor two or three
leading newspapers determine what is and is not news. Nobody wants to give up
that kind of power.
Four Blood Moons – Let’s Stop the Hype - By Rev Michael Bresciani - While
some things are more subtle than others, the scripture is quite clear. Here are
just a few things that address the hype about the blood moon tetrads and those
who espouse their importance. Rather than create an argument for or
against them I would call anyone to use the scripture to interpret the
scripture. If one part is overemphasized to the exclusion of another, it is you
that have succumbed to an error and you may be involved in a false ministry.
Here is a short list, but be sure to do your homework as the Bereans did and
check scripture against scripture.
...The blood moon tetrads may have some significance for the Jews,
but they are not directly tied to scriptural prophecies. They are astronomical
events that can be determined by ordinary science and math. To use them to
predict anything is an extravagance bordering on the practice of astrology.
Astrological prognostications are forbidden to all believers past, present or
The hype generated by the blood red moons has been good for
booksellers. In a recent video I watched as one well known preacher spent hours
talking up his package of books, CDs and study guides on the blood moons and
offered it all at an exorbitant price that made me shudder.
...Two final points must be made on the blood moons. Firstly, the
blood moon spoken of in scripture which is directly connected to the return of
the Lord Jesus Christ could not possibly be the upcoming tetrads for the most
obvious reasons. The blood red moon of Christ’s return is
accompanied by an earthquake, a total shrouding or blockage of the sun, the
complete blocking out of the stars (Joel
3: 15) and is followed by the blowing of trumpets and final judgments. They
are not astronomical events that any scientist or astronomer can predict, but
are strictly interventional acts of God at an unspecified time in the future.
They will be complete with the sign of Christ appearing in the sky for the
entire world to see – no passing tetrad here.
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from
heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the
sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth
mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with
power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a
trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one
end of heaven to the other.” (Mt 24: 29-31)

RECOVERING THE MEANING OF MARRIAGE - By
ROBERT KNIGHT - Marriage
is the only type of coupling capable of natural reproduction of the human race —
a man and a woman. Children need mothers and fathers, and marriage is society’s
way of obtaining them. ...After Massachusetts legalized homosexual “marriage” in
2004, the Catholic Church had to shut down its large adoption agency, and later
in the District of Columbia. This denies orphans one of the best chances of
being adopted in an intact household with a mother and father. Collateral
...Hijacking the moral capital of the black civil rights movement
to turn a wrong into a “right” is part of a detailed strategy in the 1989 book
“After the Ball,” by public relations experts Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen,
who advised: “In any campaign to win over the public, gays must be portrayed as
victims in need of protection so that straights will be inclined by reflex to
adopt the role of protector.” They suggested branding people with traditional
values as “haters” and “bigots.”
...In 1994, writer Michelangelo Signorile urged activists to “fight
for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the
institution of marriage completely, to demand the right to marry not as a way of
adhering to society’s moral codes but rather to debunk a myth and radically
alter an archaic institution.” Contrast that with what Jesus said about
marriage, reiterating God’s directive in Genesis: From the beginning of
creation, God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his
father and mother, and the two shall become one flesh.

Op-ed: Charles G. Koch Responds to Baseless Leftist Attacks - By
Daniel Doherty - The
Left’s obsession with Koch Industries and the two brothers who founded it is
almost surreal. Take, for example, the Senate Majority Leader. Virtually every
time he speaks now he mentions the Koch brothers in some capacity, complaining
incoherently about them and how they’re attempting to “buy
America.” To accept his assertions at face value, in other words, is to
believe that every problem in America is directly -- or tangentially -- related
to Koch Industries. This is absurd.
Well aware of the Left’s crusade to soil the Koch brand, Charles G.
to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to defend himself and his company.
In his piece, he assails collectivists as lacking real ideas, “[promising]
heaven but [delivering] hell,” and resorting to “character assassination.” He
also provides some important facts about his company that the Left will no doubt
dispute -- and scoff at, too. Nevertheless, here they are:
Rather than try to understand my vision for a free society or
accurately report the facts about Koch Industries, our critics would have you
believe we're "un-American" and trying to "rig the system," that we're against
"environmental protection" or eager to "end workplace safety standards." These
falsehoods remind me of the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan's observation,
"Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts." Here are
some facts about my philosophy and our company:
Koch companies employ 60,000 Americans, who make many thousands of
products that Americans want and need. According to government figures, our
employees and the 143,000 additional American jobs they support generate nearly
$11.7 billion in compensation and benefits. About one-third of our U.S.-based
employees are union members.
Koch employees have earned well over 700 awards for environmental,
health and safety excellence since 2009, many of them from the Environmental
Protection Agency and Occupational Safety and Health Administration. EPA
officials have commended us for our "commitment to a cleaner environment" and
called us "a model for other companies."
Our refineries have consistently ranked among the best in the
nation for low per-barrel emissions. In 2012, our Total Case Incident Rate (an
important safety measure) was 67% better than a Bureau of Labor Statistics
average for peer industries. Even so, we have never rested on our laurels. We
believe there is always room for innovation and improvement.
Far from trying to rig the system, I have spent decades opposing
cronyism and all political favors, including mandates, subsidies and protective
tariffs—even when we benefit from them. I believe that cronyism is nothing more
than welfare for the rich and powerful, and should be abolished.
Oh My: Audit Finds Evidence of Widespread Voter Fraud in North Carolina - By
Guy Benson - This looks
like a very
big deal (via WNCN): ...According to this audit by the North Carolina
Elections Oversight Committee, at least 81 dead people have been voting from the
grave, and more than 35,000 people with matching full names and dates of birth
voted in both North Carolina and another state in the 2012 general election. To
put that number in context, Barack Obama carried North Carolina by fewer
than 15,000 votes in 2008. Double voting, needless to say, is a crime.
Furthermore, state officials were only able to cross check their rolls and voter
activity records with 28 other states, leaving loads of potential data missing.
...Those statistics may be convincing to someone who hadn't just
read the rest of the article. Several weeks ago, we highlighted a 2012
report out of Florida in which a local reporter took it upon himself to use
a single, extremely narrow method to ferret out voter fraud. By
cross-referencing Florida's voter rolls with jury duty cards on which people had
checked a box declining to serve due to their non-citizen status, the NBC
correspondent pinpointed nearly 100 ineligible voters in his county alone.
Several admitted on camera to (a) not being US citizens, and (b) voting in US
elections. "I vote every year!" one woman boasted. Last week, the California
State Senate voted to suspend three Democratic members, one of whom was
of eight felonies, including multiple counts of voter fraud. Yet the "myth"
of voter fraud remains solidly ensconced within the Left's political catechism.
Voter fraud undeniably exists. The extent to which it exists remains unclear, as
the stunning results of North Carolina's audit demonstrate. Voter ID laws
reflect common sense, are constitutional,
and are overwhelmingly
popular. I'll leave you with the Democrat Party Chairwoman openly
celebrating a court decision that halted a Republican-initiated effort to
purge a swing state's voter rolls of ineligible and non-citizen voters.
...Democrats want "more participation, not less" -- even if that
increased participation results in fraud that undermines our electoral system,
apparently. I wonder why?
CAIR-MI Fails to Silence TMLC President - The Michigan chapter of the
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) attempted to silence a speech by
Richard Thompson to the Greater Oakland Republican Club on the internal threat
posed to America by Radical Islam by using their customary name-calling
intimidation tactics, which have proven successful in the past. This time
their tactics did not work. Thompson, the President and Chief Counsel of the
Thomas More Law Center, was invited to speak on Tuesday, April 1st. On
Monday, however, CAIR-MI launched a press release demanding that the Republican
Club disinvite Thompson, labeling him a “notorious Islamophobe” with a “long
track record of fear-mongering.” The Club refused to cave-in to the ploy
and the speech went on as planned in a packed room.
Thompson, responding to the Club’s decision not to cave-in to CAIR,
commented, “I applaud the Greater Oakland Republican Club for its steadfast
defense of the constitutional right to free speech. Sadly, too many groups
and individuals lack the moral courage to say “No” to CAIR. And as long as
their bullying tactics work on some weak-kneed Americans, they will continue
their efforts to restrict free speech.” Thompson began his speech by informing
the audience that they have witnessed first-hand the operation of Sharia
law—silencing the free speech right of anyone who dares criticize Islam.
Thompson went on to describe CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy
Land Foundation trial where the supposed charity and five of its organizers were
found guilty by a federal jury of illegally funneling more than $12 million to
the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Thompson also pointed to the stated
plans of one of CAIR’s founders, Omar Ahmad, that Islam is in America to become
dominant and the highest authority.
Thompson also quoted a statement from the FBI’s former chief of
counterterrorism, “CAIR, its leaders and its activities effectively give aid to
international terrorist groups.” The University of Michigan is the most recent
entity to capitulate to CAIR’s campaign to silence any criticism of Islam.
As a result of CAIR’s intimidation tactics, the University cancelled screenings
of “Honor Diaries,” a film which details the truth about the brutal violence
against women in Muslim countries.
According to Megyn
Kelly on the Kelly File, (a great video to watch) numerous screenings of the
film have been cancelled due to demands from CAIR including a screening at the
University of Michigan – Ann Arbor originally scheduled for April 3, 2014.
CAIR and CAIR-MI often demand the cancellation of events they deem “Islamophobic;”
a term meant to intimidate and force event organizers into cancellations.
Clearly, the reason for CAIR’s personal attacks on Thompson stem
from the fact that as a public interest law firm, TMLC, has led the fight
against the threat of Radical Islam and the Stealth Jihad in the courts. Brooke
Goldstein, a human rights attorney, in response to CAIR’s involvement in
shutting down the “Honor Diaries” film said, “CAIR operates as the Islamic
speech police. It goes around bullying and intimidating anyone who is brave
enough to speak publically about the threat of Islam and Islamist terrorism and
violence in the Muslim world.” Goldstein continued, “CAIR has a systematic
campaign to go around and target anybody who speaks publically about the threat
of militant Islam as Islamophobic.” (More on Radical Islam
Here Comes the First of the "Blood Moon Tetrad"—a Remarkable Four Blood Moons in
2 Years… a Sign of End Times? by Aimee Herd - "The sun shall be turned to
darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and
magnificent day." –Acts 2:20 It's undeniable; something very special—and rare—is
about to happen in the sky.(Photo by Fred
Espenak via Earthsky.org) According to NASA and other astronomers, the full
moon of April 14-15th will kick off a celestial phenomenon known as a "tetrad"
of blood-red moons. It's remarkable enough to anyone viewing a lunar eclipse as
it is turned coppery-red from the "dispersed light from all the Earth's sunrises
and sunsets [at once]."
However, this time there will be four of them, each one 6 months
apart. They say a tetrad of blood moons is rare, but even more significant, for
Bible Believers especially, is the fact that each one will occur during two
major Jewish Feast times in both years: Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles.
According to a Red Orbit report,
each blood moon will be visible to all of North America. (Graphic by Red Orbit)
Another interesting fact to consider is what the Earth looks like from the
position of the moon during one of these times. What you'd see is the Earth
coming between the sun and moon, eclipsing it. It would form a ring appearing
like red fire all around the Earth. Watch a video about the coming tetrad of

A fairly common experience for Russian citizenry under the old socialist

this is the future of the US under liberalism - By Allen
West - Ladies and gents, I want to thank France and President Francois
Hollande for allowing America to see what lies ahead. Liberal progressives and

minutes and 37 seconds to see what the future holds for America. At every
instance where the word “France” is used replace it with “America.” The
underlying problem is, where will Americans escape to? And that’s why this is

Official Policy: Male Federal Workers Can Use Women's Restrooms, Locker Rooms
- By Terence P. Jeffrey
- Obama's Office of Personnel Management has published what it calls "Guidance
Regarding the Employment of Transgender Individuals in the Workplace." This
document speaks of "sex" as something a person has "assigned" to them only after
they make it through the birth canal. ...It means allowing the person to dress
differently. "Once an employee has informed management that he or she is
transitioning," say the guidelines, "the employee will begin wearing the clothes
associated with the gender to which the person is transitioning." ...Then there
is the point in the guidance governing restrooms and locker rooms. "For a
transitioning employee, this means that, once he or she has begun living and
working full-time in the gender that reflects his or her identity, agencies
should allow access to restrooms and (if provided to other employees) locker
room facilities consistent with his or her gender identity," say the guidelines.
According to the guidance, access to a restroom or locker room should not be
conditioned on anatomy.
o TEN PILLARS OF
PATRIOTISM - By Don Feder - Language-corruption is endemic. Sodomy is an
"alternative life style," jihad-murder is "workplace-related violence" and
Catholic institutions not providing contraception through their health insurance
are part of a "war on women." Even patriotism doesn't mean what it once did. A
patriot used to be Nathan Hale, Andrew Jackson, Sergeant York and Audie Murphy.
Now we're told that it's patriotic to support whatever foreign policy idiocy an
anti-American administration dreams up. According to the most recent Pew
Research Center survey, 52% completely agree with the statement: "I am very
patriotic." Another 36% "mostly agree." But what does this mean? Delving a bit
deeper, 69% say they're "very likely" to sing the National Anthem, 59% to
display the American flag on their home or car and 53% to attend a public
celebration of the 4th of July. But will America be saved by watching a parade
pass by, singing the first verse of the National Anthem off-key or attaching a
miniature flag on a car antenna? This is patriotism lite.
... What does patriotism really
mean? If you say you love America, what are you going to do about it? Offered
for your consideration, 10 Pillars of Patriotism – what the authentic patriot
must support to reverse the process of national decline.
1. God - ...George Washington observed : "Of all the
dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and
Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of
Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness,
these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens."
2. he Constitution – The federal government is constrained, and
rights guaranteed, by the Constitution, as it was written by the Founding
Fathers and later amended, and not as interpreted by activist judges or
nullified by a presidential pen. ...Elitists hate the fact that the Constitution
is impartial – not favoring one group over another – and is concerned primarily
with restraining government rather than ordering the affairs of citizens. That's
why they're forever telling us that our Constitution is outmoded.
3. The Free Market – The free market is as American as
representative government. It has brought unparalleled prosperity to this nation
and opportunity to its citizens. Supply and demand are the best way to allocate
resources. The alternative is ideological rigidity or bureaucratic whim.
...Planned economy versus free economy is the difference between North and South
Korea, East and West Germany (before reunification), Cuba and Costa Rica, and
the U.S. economy under Reagan and Obama. (See complete list and coverage
o Founding Fodder: Would the
Framers Love ObamaCare? - By Tony
Perkins - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) seems intent on
being the butt of health care jokes with ridiculous statements. Adding to her
growing list of immortalized quotes, the former Speaker told reporters that
ObamaCare was the Founding Fathers' dream. '[The law's critics] have not been an
obstacle to the American people having healthier lives that our Founders wanted
for them -- like a healthier life, liberty, the freedom to pursue their
happiness.' I can hear them now -- "Give me ObamaCare or give me death!' In all
honesty, ObamaCare represents everything the Founders opposed. An encroachment
on liberty, livelihood, and lawfulness, the President's signature policy is the
antithesis of the good governance this nation was founded upon. 'My reading of
history,' wrote Thomas Jefferson, 'convinces me that most bad government results
from too much government."
Harry Reid to Doctor and Cancer Patient Tom Coburn: Stop Getting 'In the Weeds'
on Obamacare - By Katie
Pavlich - Republican Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is a medical doctor
suffering from recurring prostate cancer. Thanks to Obamacare, Coburn recently
lost his cancer specialist. ...Regardless, America's worst Senator Harry
Reid, who also happens to be the Majority Leader, dismissed Coburn yesterday on
the Senate floor for getting "in the weeds" about Obamacare. More from Joel
Gehrke: "Nineteen of the cancer centers in this country, only five are
covered under Obamacare," he [Coburn] told the Washington Examiner Tuesday, a
data point he attributed to the low payments the Affordable Care Act provides
for those treatments." "You know, it's a market, and what they've done is
they've priced it where these cancer centers, a lot of them, aren't going to
participate because they don't get paid to cover the costs," he said. Coburn,
who is retiring at the end of this year, said his cancer center initially
refused to accept the government health insurance, but has since reversed that
policy. Reid suggested that Coburn was taking too narrow a view of the law. "Dr.
Coburn is very good at getting into the weeds and trying to find something that
he thinks makes sense, but I think we need to look at the overall context of
this bill," he replied when asked about Coburn's comments during a Senate press

You... - By Mark Alexander - ...believe Bill Maher and Jon Stewart are
"journalists," and everything on MTV and in the New York Times is "journalism."
...look like "a deer in the headlights" if anyone mentions our Constitution
because that is just "right-wing rhetoric." ...feel the

o Sex and Race Equality -
By Walter E. Williams -
"[T]here have been recent calls to end the ban on women in combat units, but
there's no mention of the Army's sexist physical fitness test. For a male 17-21
years of age to pass, he must do 35 pushups, do 47 situps and run 2 miles in 16
minutes, 36 seconds. His female counterpart, who receives the same pay, can pass
the fitness test by doing a mere 13 pushups, doing 47 situps and running 2 miles
in 19 minutes, 42 seconds. How can anyone who values equality and self-respect
tolerate this gross discrimination? You say, 'Williams, what's your solution?' I
say we should either force women to come up to the physical fitness standards
for men or pass men who meet the female standards of fitness. Maybe we should
ask our adversaries which is better -- raising female fitness standards or
lowering those of males.
o The April Fool's ObamaCare
Numbers Racket (PatriotPost.us) - 7.1 million. That's how many Americans
Barack Obama is proudly trumpeting have signed up for ObamaCare by the March 31
deadline, and that, he said, means ObamaCare “is here to stay.” Amazing that the
number was so quickly released and so precise, just in time for April Fool's
Day. As Charles Krauthammer noted, “These guys go six months without any idea
what the numbers are, and all of a sudden it's to a decimal point.” But in fact,
it's remarkably not precise, since a large number of that 7.1 million haven't
paid their premiums yet, which means they're not enrolled. How many were
previously uninsured? They don't say. The White House also doesn't mention that
ObamaCare forced the cancellation of six million insurance policies, leaving
many of those folks no option but to sign up for ObamaCare. How convenient that
signups outnumbered cancellations. “Why are folks working so hard for people not
to have health insurance?” Obama asked smugly. He should look in the mirror.
It's incredible what you can achieve when you mandate that people do something
and penalize them for not doing it. But hey, it's a “success story”!
o How Foreign Is Our Policy?
- By Thomas Sowell -
Anti-Americanism was the rule, not the exception, among Obama's mentors over the
years, beginning in his childhood. When the young Obama and his mother lived in
Indonesia, her Indonesian husband wanted her to accompany him to social
gatherings with American businessmen -- and was puzzled when she refused. He
reminded her that these were her own people. According to Barack Obama's own
eyewitness account, her voice rose 'almost to a shout' when she replied: 'They
are not my people.' Most of Barack Obama's foreign policy decisions since
becoming president are consistent with this mindset. He has acted repeatedly as
a citizen of the world, even though he was elected to be President of the United
States. Virtually every major move of the Obama administration has reduced the
power, security and influence of America and its allies.
o Judaism, Christianity,
Environmentalism - By Dennis
Prager - As I have often noted, the most dynamic and influential religion of
the past hundred years has not been Christianity, let alone Judaism, the two
religions that created the Western world. Nor has it been Islam. It has been
Leftism. Leftism has influenced the literary, academic, media, and, therefore,
the political elite far more than any other religion. It has taken over Western
schools from elementary through graduate.
For most of that time, various incarnations of Marxism have been
the dominant expressions – and motivators – of Leftism: specifically, income
redistribution, material equality and socialism. They are still powerful aspects
of the left, but with the downfall of most communist regimes, other left-wing
expressions have generated even more passion: first feminism and then
...This is the antithesis of the Judeo-Christian view of the world
that has dominated Western civilization for all of the West's history. The
Judeo-Christian worldview is that man is at the center of the universe; nature
was therefore created for man. Nature has no intrinsic worth other than man's
appreciation and (moral) use of it.
Worship of nature was the pagan worldview, a worship that the Hebrew Bible was
meant to destroy.
...As G.K. Chesterton prophesied over a hundred years ago: “When
people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing – they believe in
anything.” Now it's the environment.
o Which Party Is Rich?
(PatriotPost.us) - If there's
one saying that's tried and “true” in DC, it's that Republicans are the “party
of the rich.” Except it's a lie. The latest example is a report that of the 10
wealthiest House districts, eight are represented by Democrats, including the
top six. Most of them are in New York and California, and the three that aren't
are outside New York City or Washington, DC. The AP helpfully notes, “Democrats
say the 'party of the rich' label is more about policies than constituents.” We
suppose there's some truth to that, because Republican – well, conservative –
policies help people getrich. Democrats prefer to keep their subjects poor while
raking in the dough from the rich.
Candidate Scott Lively upends Mass. LGBT gubernatorial debate. Doesn't flinch
from truth about the behaviors! (MassResistance.org) A lesson for the
pro-family movement around the country. Pastor Scott Lively, an independent
candidate for Governor of Massachusetts, shocked the other politicians
and audience members at a televised candidate forum on "LGBTQ issues" at the
Boston Public Library on March 25. Rather than join in the pro-"gay" chorus,
Lively described the truths about those behaviors from a medical, sociological,
and biblical standpoint. It was a cold dose of common sense that few there had
likely heard before.
The forum was held in the Boston Public Library on March 25. It was
jointly sponsored by the homosexual lobby group
MassEquality and the left-wing public television station
WGBH. All of the declared candidates for Governor participated except the
two Republicans, Charlie Baker and Mark Fisher. (Candidates for Governor
biotech executive Joe Avellone (D), former Medicare and Medicaid administrator
Don Berwick (D), Attorney General Martha Coakley (D), health care executive Evan
Falchuk (I), State Treasurer Steve Grossman (D), former Homeland Security
official Juliette Kayyem (D), Scott Lively (I), venture capitalist Jeff
Pandering vs straight talk: All seven of the other candidates for
Governor -- both Democrats and Independents, including the current state
Attorney General and Treasurer -- enthusiastically voiced their support for the
homosexual and transgender agendas and their willingness to advance them
in the state if elected. For most people it's particularly frightening to see
the extent that many politicians are willing to bow to the radical homosexual
and transgender movement without seemingly any second thoughts. Few pro-family
people realize that.
But Lively told the group that as governor he "would ban LGBT
propaganda to children." Regarding laws supporting transgenderism he said, "It's
perfectly rational and reasonable to exercise discrimination on those grounds .
. . We should be helping people to overcome this and not encourage those who
persist in the delusion." The hostility during the event against Lively was
fairly dramatic. The crowd of about 150 appeared to consist overwhelmingly of
pro-homosexual supporters. There were also about 6-12 Lively supporters there.
But just about every time he spoke he was interrupted by loud, rude noises from
the audience, which the moderator made little effort to stop. It's been observed
that homosexual activists are emotionally much like 10-year-olds, and that was
certainly evident there. (Even then, this was actually more orderly than other
venues. At least the activists stayed in their seats this time!)
In addition, the other candidates were visibly annoyed with
Lively's straight talk. At one point during the debate, Independent candidate
Jeff McCormick, who spoke right after Lively, sneered at him and said, "I should
win an award after this. Someone owes me a martini." But watching this was a
clinic on how to fight back in a seemingly overwhelming situation. It wasn't an
easy venue for any pro-family politician. But Lively took it in stride. He did
not take any of the hostile bait thrown at him, nor did he veer from his calm
but forceful demeanor. This seemed to make his message all the more powerful.

several minutes shows you all you need to see!
PELLETIER TRAVESTY PROMPTS DR. KEITH ABLOW TO WARN PARENTS TO PROTECT RIGHTS
- By MATHEW D. STAVER -
In “progressive” America, when parents disagree with doctors and the state steps
in, in too many cases the state acts as though it has unquestioned superiority
over the parents’ rights. According to well established family law, the State of
Massachusetts cannot make Justina Pelletier a “ward of the state” merely because
one doctor disagrees with the medical protocols recommended and administered by
a highly respected medical institution responsible for her care. But they did.
Lou and Linda Pelletier cannot be charged with “medical abuse” for
following a regimen of effective medical treatments for their daughter’s medical
condition under the direction of licensed, expert physicians – the Chief of
Pediatrics at Tufts Medical Center, no less. But they were. And no juvenile
court system can arbitrarily issue a “gag order” forbidding distressed parents
from discussing their case publicly. But they did, until Liberty Counsel
challenged their unconstitutional order. Bureaucrats who arrogantly believe they
are god-like and know what’s better for children than their parents have visited
all of these nightmarish scenarios upon the Lou Pelletier family.
Every parent and grandparent in the nation should pay careful attention
to what is happening in this outrageous case. A doctor warns parents to stay
away from hospitals like BCH. Dr. Keith Ablow is a renowned psychologist, Fox
News medical contributor, and professor at Tufts Medical Center. In light of the
disturbing facts surrounding the Justina Pelletier case, he issued a dire
warning in a recent Fox News commentary:
"So, in Massachusetts, if Boston Children’s Hospital wants to say
that your child’s mysterious physical symptoms are ones you are causing by
coaxing your child to act sick, then you, too, could lose custody of your child
to the state. And it won’t matter if academic doctors at another hospital
disagree and believe that your child is suffering from a genuine bodily illness.
Bottom line: Unless your child has a simple infection, and there’s absolutely no
way anyone could ever argue that you injected your kid with dirt to cause it,
keep your parental rights intact and keep driving right past Boston Children’s
Hospital. Until the hospital examines its desire to make the most dramatic
decisions possible for parents, rather than with parents, there are other very
good options for your child’s medical care."
The more light that is shed on the Pelletier family’s tragic
situation, the more it becomes apparent that the DCF and Boston Children’s
Hospital have grossly violated Justina Pelletier’s rights and those of her
family. ...Massachusetts Representative Jim Lyons, who is among the state
legislators spearheading a legislative effort to investigate this case, says
this type of government overreach must come to an end: "The fact that a state
bureaucracy believes that it can interfere with parental rights,
constitutionally protected rights, is incredible. We have to stop it in
Massachusetts and we have to stop it throughout the country. Parents have rights
and bureaucrats should not interfere with those rights." It is an outrageous
expression of raw statism for state officials to remove a child from the custody
and the care of loving parents who have committed no wrong.
A List Of 97 Taxes Americans Pay Every Year - By Michael Snyder - Americans
will fork over nearly 30 percent of what they earn to pay their income taxes,
but that is only a small part of the story. As you will see below, there
are dozens of other taxes that Americans pay every year. Of course not
everyone pays all of these taxes, but without a doubt we are all being taxed
into oblivion. It is like death by a thousand paper cuts. Our
politicians have become extremely creative in finding ways to extract money from
all of us, and most Americans don't even realize what is being done to them.
By the time it is all said and done, a significant portion of the population
ends up paying more than half of what they earn to the government. That is
fundamentally wrong, but nothing will be done about it until people start
demanding change. The following is a
list of 97 taxes Americans pay every year...
...In a previous article entitled "24
Outrageous Facts About Taxes In The United States That Will Blow Your Mind",
I listed a number of reasons why our federal income tax system has become a
complete and utter abomination that is entirely out of control...
Political correctness and the slavery of Obamacare - By
BEN S. CARSON
- Political correctness is in place to ensure conformity to the prescribed
expressions and lifestyles dictated by the elites. ...I have
stated in the past that Obamacare is the worst thing to occur in our country
since slavery. Why did I make such a strong statement? Obviously, I recognize
the horrors of slavery. My roots have been traced back to Africa, and I am aware
of some horrendous deeds inflicted on my ancestors in this country. The purpose
of the statement was not to minimize the most evil institution in American
history, but rather to draw attention to a profound shift of power from the
people to the government.
I think this shift is beginning to wrench the nation from one
centered on the rights of individual citizens to one that accepts the right of
the government to control even the most essential parts of our lives. This
strikes a serious blow to the concept of freedom that gave birth to this nation.
Some well-known radicals have very publicly written and stated that in order for
their idea of a utopian, egalitarian society to emerge in the United States, the
government must control health care, which ensures the dependency of the
populace on government. Historical analysis of many countries that have gone
this route demonstrates obliteration of the middle class and massive expansion
of the poor, dependent class with a relatively small number of elites in
This is sobering information, and those who want to fundamentally
change America would much rather demonize someone who is exposing this agenda
than engage in a conversation that they cannot win. Others join in the fray
happily marching in lockstep with those who are attempting to convert our nation
to something we won’t recognize, having no idea that they are being used.
Vladimir Lenin is sometimes credited with coining the phrase “useful idiots” to
describe such individuals.
...Political correctness is antithetical to our founding principles
of freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Its most powerful tool is
intimidation. If it is not vigorously opposed, its proponents win by default,
because the victims adopt a “go along to get along” attitude. Major allies in
the imposition of PC are members of the media, some of whom thrive on
controversy and others who are true ideologues. ...The American people
must learn to identify and ignore political correctness if we are to escape the
bitter ideological grenades that are destroying our unity and strength.
Political correctness is impotent if we the people are fearless. Let us
emphasize intelligent discussion of issues and leave the smear campaigns to
those with no constructive ideas. (See the
Progressive Politically Correct Dictionary on EarsToHear.net.)
Bachmann explains why God blessed America WORLDNETDAILY By
GARTH KANT - The congresswoman
sees America as a miracle. It was a miracle the ragtag, underfed and underfunded
Revolutionary Army could beat Great Britain, the strongest military power on
Earth. And it was a miracle that a fragile democracy, the only one of its kind
in the world, would go on to become the greatest military and economic force the
world has ever known. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., said, however, there is a
simple explanation. Americans didn’t make a king our sovereign. We didn’t make
government our sovereign. We made God our sovereign.
WND asked Bachmann to explain why the founders believed God blessed
America, because she is hosting “Washington: A Man of Prayer, 2014″ on May 7 in
the U.S. Capitol. The congresswoman said God blessed America because the
founders recognized the strength of our nation wasn’t dependent upon themselves,
their education, their status or their wealth. It is dependent upon the hand of
an almighty and sovereign God. The founders believed, she said, that just as God
blessed the children of Israel, that “if we humbled ourselves, if we bowed our
hearts and our heads before holy God, then God would hear from heaven. And if we
confessed our sins before God, He would hear that confession, forgive this land
and He would build it up.”
The founders, Bachmann told WND, “knew their own efforts would not
be enough to bring about this nation. They knew it had to be dependent upon
Him.” President George Washington believed that the fate of the new country
rested in its citizens’ fidelity to God. That is why he dedicated America to
God. “Washington: A Man of Prayer, 2014″ commemorates the events of April 30,
1789, when, after being sworn in at Federal Hall, President Washington,
accompanied by Congress, proceeded to St. Paul’s Chapel where, as one of his
first official acts, the president offered a prayer of dedication to God on
