Truth About Our School System

Battle Against Leftist Indoctrination in Public Schools Continues in Maine

Maine state representative Lawrence Lockman isn’t backing down after a committee in the state legislature killed his proposed bill that would have forbidden political and ideological indoctrination in the public schools of the Pine Tree State.
Leftist indoctrination in the classroom “is a violation of the civil rights of the students,” Lockman told FrontPage. Politically correct identity-group politics is now the norm in Maine’s classrooms, he said. (FrontPage published an op-ed by Lockman on March 5.)
“Realtors, architects, dental hygienists, have a code of ethics,” he said. “Why not teachers?”
.
Teachers were wrong to get involved in and bring students to a previous demonstration to lobby for the passage of legislation restricting firearms, Lockman said.
“It’s outrageous that teachers are taking sides on a legislative issue.”
“The kids were used,” he said. “They were pawns. They were dupes.”
“If the gun owners of Maine were having a demonstration or a rally to press for pro-firearms legislation I would just as strongly have opposed teachers getting involved in that.”
Lockman said his 501(c)(4) nonprofit, the Maine First Project, is moving forward with a “forgotten parents’ initiative” to get parents involved at the local level.
Lockman’s comments came after his fellow Republican lawmakers abandoned him and allowed his bill, known as LD 589, to die in committee. The measure, which the David Horowitz Freedom Center helped to draft, was unanimously voted down by the joint House-Senate Education and Cultural Affairs Committee Feb. 28. Not surprisingly, the teachers’ unions and the ACLU opposed the bill.
The legislation would have required the State Board of Education to “adopt rules prohibiting teachers in public schools from engaging in political, ideological or religious advocacy in the classroom.” Those rules “must be clear and provide enforcement mechanisms for appropriate and professional ethical behavior by teachers licensed in the State in tax-supported schools.”
While on the job public school teachers would have been forbidden from endorsing, supporting or opposing: any candidate or nominee for public office; any pending, proposed, or enacted legislation; and any pending, proposed, or executed executive action by an executive or executive branch agency at the local, state, or federal level.
Teachers would also have been barred from “[a]dvocating in a partisan manner for any side of a controversial issue,” and from taking a stand on any pending, proposed, or decided court case and from introducing any controversial subject matter not germane to the course being taught. They also would have been forbidden to endorse, support, or engage in any activity that hampers or impedes the lawful access of a military recruiter to the school campus or that hampers or impedes the actions of local, state, or federal law enforcement.
“Segregating students according to race or singling out one racial group of students as responsible for the suffering or inequities experienced by another racial group of students,” would also have been prohibited.
Republican lawmakers on the committee joined Democrats to brush aside Lockman’s concerns about the ongoing leftist indoctrination of Maine students.
Rep. Gary Drinkwater (R) said the bill “goes against the core belief” that this issue should be “handled by [local school] administration,” the Bangor Daily News reported.
“It’s not a major issue. It’s a small issue that happens, and it’s not to be tolerated,” Drinkwater said. “We want controversial issues brought up in the classroom — that’s a good place for it to be discussed. We just don’t want one-sided philosophy taught.”
Drinkwater said everyone agreed the way to proceed “is not with legislation.”
This “local control” argument that Republicans on the committee hid behind was a complete cop-out, according to Lockman. It amounts to Republican lawmakers saying they don’t care about the civil rights of students and that ethics are optional for teachers in Maine.
The state government already bears most of the cost of K-12 public education and imposes mandates on local governments and school districts “all the time,” he said.
The testimony of parent Cathy Nichols, who co-chairs the Falmouth Town Republican Committee in Cumberland County, Maine, fell on deaf ears.
When the bill was scuttled by the committee, “I was stunned,” Nichols told FrontPage.
“I couldn’t understand how they could ignore such raw verbatim testimony.”
Children “have very malleable minds” and some children “are being victimized” in the classroom, she said.
In her testimony before the committee, Nichols said students who expressed non-leftist opinions were marginalized, and in some cases, punished.
One parent told her that at a school in Portland “students who chose not to participate in the [March 2018 pro-gun control] walk out were required to remain in the library with no books and no computers, a virtual detention.”
One girl was told to remove her pro-Trump MAGA (“Make America Great Again”) hat while her classmates wore the pink pussy-hats popularized by the Women’s March. Another said her political science class was completely one-sided, teaching about Democrats without discussing Republicans.
A 7th grade female attended a “Girls Rock” event supported by a school. The girls were given tee shirts bearing the word “feminism” and were asked to draw the shape of a vagina on paper and pin it to the shirt. Later the girls were taught that anal sex, same-sex sex, and not shaving body parts was acceptable. Many parents were horrified when their daughters recounted the experience, Nichols said.
The father of another 7th grader complained about the radical bent of social studies homework. The student was asked to research a website called We The Future which describes only leftist causes including Black Lives Matter, the Women’s March, gun control, and open borders. Students were encouraged by their teacher to become politically active on behalf of these radical causes.
A boy was asked to write an essay about the border wall promised by President Trump. He complied and received a failing grade when he supported Trump’s position.
“There is an inherent bias in our school system towards a liberal interpretation at the exclusion of any kind of conservative opinion,” Nichols said in her testimony.
“This bias fosters intolerance of different beliefs and this is not the kind of education we deserve. Please teach our children how to think, not what to think.”
“These students, our children, who did not go along with the ‘groupthink’ were shamed not only by certain other students, but, more distressingly, by teachers. They were punished not for anything they did, but for beliefs they hold.”
FrontPage readers are painfully aware that the Left has long been attempting to radicalize students and encourage them to become activists obsessed with the Marxist holy trinity of race, sex, and class.
With help from extreme-left hate groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and California’s Just Communities Central Coast, and other radical activists trying to impose unwanted social change on the country, public school teachers across America already saturate students with information about racial injustice in America in a nonstop barrage of historic facts and ahistorical nonsense. And in the culture at large, the media, politicians, and the entertainment industry can’t stop talking about race.
In Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Marxist theorist Paulo Freire urged that schools be used to inculcate radical values in students to transform them into agents of social change. Freire argued that the so-called dominant pedagogy “silences” poor and minority children and that there is no such thing as a neutral educational system.
Joining Freire in his desire to use the educational system to level institutions is unrepentant communist terrorist and education theorist Bill Ayers, a close associate of Barack Obama who has long advocated corrupting the young so they can agitate to fundamentally transform American society.
“If we want change to come, we would do well not to look at the sites of power we have no access to; the White House, the Congress, the Pentagon,” he said in 2012. “We have absolute access to the community, the school, the neighborhood, the street, the classroom, the workplace, the shop, the farm.”
Fortunately, there are still people like Lockman and Nichols who are willing to fight back against the radical indoctrination of young, impressionable students, even if it means taking on fellow Republicans.
As Lockman wrote in his op-ed:
I suppose that when you’re always tucked into a defensive crouch, and want to be well thought of by the Democrats and the Fake News media, you would have good reason to be scared of losing your next election campaign if you voted against the wishes of the ACLU and the union bosses.
But what if our side played offense for a change?
What if we hammered the union bosses for all they have done to wreck public education and indoctrinate our kids? What if we went to bat on behalf of parents and students who are being cheated by the rigged system?
What would happen if we decided to fight fire with fire?
We’ll never know until we try.

Damn right.

Socialism .. Our Greatest Danger

 

Get out of UN

 

Socialism, the resurgence of socialism in my studied opinion is not actually a resurgence, but inadvertently exposed during the 2016 and the 2018 political campaigns. What happened with some of the comments during the Clinton – Sanders primary DNC presidential campaign, both mentioned some of the socialist utopias. Bernie more than Hillary because he wears his socialism like a fine hat, Hillary on the other hand, was more clandestine in her socialist ambitions, playing so because of Obama’s blatant display of total disregard for the Nation, the Constitution, and the people. His total ambition to divide and conquer our nation in the name of the North American Socialist Union which he would then control and work his way to the UN Secretary General in his blind ambition to rule the world, as the Global Socialist Union.
That was not the idea of the Muslim from Kenya before he made the splashes in Chicago politics with ACORN and George Soros, Bill Ayers (the theoretician of Marxism as he led the Weather Underground). It was Bill Ayers that implemented the Saul Alinsky ideologies into the ACORN group, and socialism was well into its resurgence then.
Now we have socialists coming out of the woodwork which has been called Democratic Socialists. Several socialist groups already exist in the United States and have done so for decades. They have grown steadily developing their ideologies, and of course, the MSM have their agenda to help even when lies suit them and their purpose better than the truth. Problem with socialism and that is for conservative and Christian authors, bloggers and all conservative communications. Liberal-socialists and Republican establishment politicians will control the content … even in our books. So, if you have a book ready, you had better get your agent and get them busy with selling your book to the right publisher.
I listen to several sermons on Sunday, I have a couple of preachers that I like as their messages always apply to life, our lives as we have to live it in these turbulent times of chaos in our nation. Our nation that was founded on Christian principals as most of the founders were Christian of a few sects who settled in their own Boroughs in most part, but there were other sects and non-Christians there as well, just in a large minority, and thus the infamous Jefferson letter about a wall between government and religion, it was initiated by the Danbury Baptist Church’s concern that being a minority in his state of Connecticut that they would be run out, or politically persecuted. Jefferson’s letter simply was to state that the federal government could not step in and that they could not establish or disestablish any religion. However, since the ’60s the Atheists have created major damage to the Christian faith in the United States, using Justice Black’s opinion on Church and State, and the Socialist group the ACLU.
Fact is, the United States was founded as a Christian Nation our Constitution and its Preamble reflect it. Our laws, ethics, integrity, morals, reflected throughout the history of our nation. It is not any wonder that it is my studied opinion that this nation was given as a safe haven for Christ’s Protestant church. Not always doing the right thing, but then the church is the people and Christian or not, people don’t do the right thing most of the time. As a nation, we should have been learning by our mistakes and as the church, we should have been learning from our mistakes. But evil pride and the nature of man has only splintered the nation and broken the church.
Meanwhile, socialism has been able to move ahead through the aid of liberalism, liberal theology, social justice, and our worthless liberal congress. I know some of the representatives and Senators are fine people with some integrity and values, however, we still have a majority of the citizens and the church that still hold on to the value that makes this the greatest nation on earth.
Yes, I am a Trump supporter and glad that I am, although I have my doubts that he will be able to complete what we made him promise to middle America. Some he has kept even with all the obstruction from the Shadow Government (the Swamp and Deep State), and he wanted to get things done bi-partisan but that should have never even been considered from day one. He began by changing his demeanor to be more presidential and with class, except with his war against fake news, and that war just might cost him reelection in 2020, because, the “never Trump” socialists and RINOs have joined with the press to bring him down. But in the long run, he has just kept on keeping on, like the little pink bunny.
Unfortunately, like the little pink bunny, the socialists just keep on going, beating their drums of resistance and Argumentum Ad Infinitum cycling from one fake issue to another. Well perhaps fake is too strong of a word if we are looking at the big picture because some of what they claim is based on a half-truth, no truth, and totally manufactured lies with no link to reality at all. And that is what the mainstream media find their material to run with. It is the reason that we hear what they say and calls it and them stupid.
Stupid like a fox as long as they can get their lies passed among the conservative on social media it actually becomes a weapon against us. It becomes Ad Nauseam and if we continue to respond beyond the first comment and share on social media, we are playing their game and doing the propaganda for them. It is what Trump did during the campaign he picked a big fight with them and then would make totally out of context comments focusing perceived truth, and the outrage would spread like wildfire fueled on gasoline. The Socialists are doing the same thing with us and it keeps on going and going and going and going, … we are their best propagandists.
Since President Trump called the socialists out during the State of the Union address, because a half dozen of them have been recently elected and several socialists have elected to seek the office of the President in 2020, so now that the old DNC has been exposed as mostly socialists and some even communists who have been purposing the Obama agenda in making the US into the North American Union (North American Socialist Union). But by pointing out the Socialists that have come out of the closet, he uncovered the whole stinking mess and the rest are in denial, sort of.
May God have mercy toward our nation, may God have mercy on us, his children. I look for more socialist confrontation not only against the President and Vice President, but conservative Congressmen/women will be in the crosshairs along with the rest of us. I pray that God will intercede on the behalf of our nation and of His church. Amen, amen and the peace of God be with us all.
Socialism in our nation has been like the little choo-choo chugging along and it came to a steep mountain, and down in its little puffer-belly it didn’t think it could, but it had to try even in the face of certain failure. The little puffer-belly started to say … “I think I can – I think I can – I think I can, I believe I can – I believe I can – I believe I can, I know I can – I know I can – I know I can…” and he did, he made it over the mountain. Well socialism has made it over the mountain, slowly over decades, but it made it over, and with George HW Bush’s allegiance to the UN and aligning his agenda with their agenda, that little puffer-belly of socialism started to have a problem with the downgrade, Clinton tried to control the momentum of the downhill plunge, George W Bush lost the brakes, and Obama put more fuel to it until it went totally out of control bringing chaotic division amongst the people.
Socialism took over the Democratic Party back in the day of Franklin D. Roosevelt and his “New Deal” and the UN Charter. Now that Hillary didn’t make it to the Whitehouse to continue on where Obama left off, we have them squealing like a stuck hog, because Trump is doing what Obama did to the conservative, only with more provocation when he went on National TV and said how he was being opposed in Congress “I have a telephone and a pen” telling the nation he could do what he wanted, and that was the power of his office. That is what he did. And was unopposed by the socialist (liberals) in Washington.
He would not have even been elected the first go around if a real conservative would have run against him, but he had the good fortune to run against another socialist McCain, at the least a RINO, who was trying to make the Republican Party into a “New Republican Party” (progressive globalism) and the opposite of conservatism. Then along came Mitt, who had it won even without trying, that is until their last debate and RINO (globalist) Mitt gave Obama the win, with simple ridicule over naval ships. An unexpected ploy in a valid point that Obama switched to ridicule old Mitt, and like it was almost a preplanned game, he manufactured a feeble grin and a stammered “I am aware of that”… and went on a very defensive and elusive argument, loosing not only the debate but his whole campaign, a campaign that now seems to have been a farce and manufactured failure from the start.
It would be my studied opinion if I would give it much thought if any, it would just enhance my loathing for Romney he sold the election to the socialists, allowing the Obama to try to finish what he started in 09; “To fundamentally change our nation.” and he almost, yes, he ALMOST. Succeeded, but, as they say, “Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.” Thank the ever-merciful God for not allowing Clinton or Obama, to continue during a time of chaos on every front, which was all manufactured and fast-tracked by Obama, Soros, The UN, Clinton, and the socialist in the shadow government and in Congress, including the RINOs who nearly destroyed the conservative Republican party.
Without God’s intervention … well, I will leave you to guess. I will leave you to read my book when it is published (I hope soon – just have to find an Agent) … but you can start doing your own research, starting with FDR’s New Deal, the UN Charter, and all the social programs he used the power of the “phone and pen” executive power to put into effect. Why? to nudge the people who were coming out of the great depression to rely on government, even for work and retirement With programs like the Social Security Act, (Congress) WPA, Welfare for families with children, which added more agencies, and expanded the power of the federal government over the people, FDR’s New Deal targeted the most vulnerable citizens and made them more dependent and trapped by that dependency on the federal government.
Socialism then has been a force to be reckoned with and although from time to time it has been focus of various political activist groups to expose the socialism and communism, and the left who wore the crown of liberalism as some sort of great badge for liberating the masses from capitalism and conservatism who had been morphing into socialism since the 1800s and a shift of speed with FDR. Now we have full-blown running the Shadow Government and the socialist/globalists which is the greater part of Congress. We have the Liberalist church eating away at the biggest threat to the socialist/globalist (equates into what we have been calling liberal for decades). But they are all Communist without total Marxism … yet
They all suffer from Christian phobia (We may call it Christianophobic) real Christianity brings terror to their inner soul. I read some interesting stuff in an opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen, it was a humorous piece of a real serious nature. It was about the way the Democratic Party “Name-Calling” or the way to use “ridicule” according to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals handbook. Thus, they ridicule by phobias the first to use phobias in “name calling” and using big words in arguments some of which they don’t even know the meaning, some have no meaning but have been manufactured by the MSM and the activist pick it up on the morning broadcast and use it in their confrontations with Conservatives and Christians.
In his article, he recommended the same by hitting them with words like sesquipedalian (google it) but when they start with their big words just say that word, roll your eyes, and walk away. Let them suffer from patriot-phobia.

But do me a favor and research socialism in the United States.

Well, this has been a long article and I will let you get on with your research.

Perl Harbor Day

 

pearl harbor_remembrance_thumb[1]

 

Today is the seventh day of December, a national day of remembrance, remembering the horrific atrocity of war. However, it is the twenty-four hundred and two brave men of the United States Navy, who sacrificed their lives for our sovereign nation and our freedoms. Another Twelve-hundred and eighty-two souls were wounded. Brave men all even the ones who were not wounded or lost their lives.
77 years ago, and each year we relive it, but over the past decade, we have noticed the press cover it with less and less coverage, unless they can paint a picture positive to their socialist political agenda. But December 7, 1941, will live on for a long time in the hearts of the American people, regardless of how hard the socialists try to indoctrinate our school children, there is enough of us who still believe in the United States, our constitution, our Sovereign Nation, our freedoms.
What happened 77 years ago today, should remind us of the sacrifice that those brave seamen gave for our freedom and all the brave men before and since who have given life and limb for our freedom, for our free and sovereign nation. Remembering Perl Harbor is important, important to our culture, regardless of the turmoil that we find ourselves in concerning global socialism, over the past five or six decades we have been headed directly in that direction, only over the past decade have all the socialist ideologies come to an assault on our nation.
This assault has been weaponized by the liberal/socialist politicians and liberal Christianity. The assault is not on our naval strength at a safe harbor, but against our constitution and our sovereignty. Our war is not a bloody destruction of humans, but the destruction of the United States, as we once knew it. The nation that the December 7, 1941 Sailors gave their life and limb to protect.

God bless this day of remembrance let it stand forever a marker for our freedom.

Standing in a Garage Don’t Make You a Cadillac …

Standing in the garage does not make you a Cadillac, or Saying you are a Christian Patriot does not make you a Patriot or a Christian.

I have often written of the ugly change in our culture, especially, where it deals with the Christian community and of course, the Political corruption of progressivism and socialism. It is quite true that mankind has always been destined to progress and move forward as he moved more and more toward God and that was from the time of the Garden lesson of God means what He says.
While writing my book, “A Splintered Nation and A Broken Church,” I went back to show the Christian intent of the Mayflower Pac, to not only protect Christians but, those non-believers who were readying the disembarking of the Ship and establishing the Colony. The government of that Colony knew they had to protect the non-believers from a state religion while protecting the religion of the Colony, it is my opinion, that it really was a matter of survival that they all commit to stay and make it through the winter and the next several years of building.
Nevertheless, as the book progresses through the political and protestant corruption on a hopscotch ride on the milk train, stopping at the points of particular interest with Presidents, Political Parties, and various battles in the Holy War waged by Satan against the Christian church which is real and continues to gain in intensity.
While writing my book, which I hope will open eyes of Christians and non-believers as well, about what the Holy War against Christianity has in a large part been enabled by Modernity, or rather a slow growth of liberalism, which over the past four decades has been effectively overtaken by socialism. However, there is no way that the majority of our nation would have simply given up our Sovereign Republic and Constitutional Freedoms for a Socialist regime and a Global Socialist Union.
Since the 60s with liberal celebrities who committed high treason during the Viet Nam war along with hot-dog John McCain or as some of his fellow prisoners of war called him “Songbird.” However, it is in the 60s that the Democrats had to make a decision in what to do about the Republican Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a Black Baptist Pastor who had had enough of the Jim Crow laws of the Democratic South.
Dr. King was the public figure who was not a Democrat in the issue, The Democrats who had regained control of the South after Reconstruction. Oh yes, the Democrat Party – the founders of the KKK, the Southern States passing State Legislation which became known as the “Jim Crow” laws, the “Equal but no the same” Democrats. It was Dr. King that took the Civil Rights right to Washington. Kennedy had no way to go, so he went against his own party in the South, and won the loyalty of the blacks, that loyalty to the Democrat Party quickly became shackles and they once again were on a plantation – The Democrat Political Plantation.
For Dr. King’s participation, he was killed. For Kennedy, he was killed, and for his Brother the AG and sure winner of a campaign, he was killed as well. it does leave one to wonder how far the leaders of the Democrats would go, to keep the black citizens on a plantation, the Democrat plantation.
For five or so decades, one of the main things that have stood in the way of making this a socialist nation has been the church. Oh yes, Christian values and the defeat of our values meant that the Christians needed to be persecuted and the Bible discredited. That war started a long time ago, and one of the main issues for the founding of our nation, religious freedom, and all that goes along with it. It is not that God didn’t keep up with man’s advancements, He didn’t heave to, he didn’t have to change anything, the man simply needed to slow down and be blessed with the work of their hands and minds. Mankind needed to listen to God, and not fall to their own understanding.
The moral values of our nation stood in the way of evil progression. Moral values were written into the Constitution protecting the Christians and the non-Christian from the evil of the world. It has never been applied without flaw, the Constitution nor Christianity, however, without the Constitution and Christianity we would have been a communist union within just a few years after the 2nd world war and the formation of Socialist President FDR’s United Nations. Of course, he served more terms than any other president and yes, helped bring us out of a world depression.
But he was nevertheless, a socialist and when he put the United Nations together he had hopes that socialism would take hold and the world could be governed by one supreme government while keeping their identity and borders but the borders would be open and in addition to being the citizens of that nation we would, more importantly, be citizen-subjects of the world … in short a one world order and that is how the UN charter was originated under the façade of global peace.
Well my, my, my, that is a quandary because socialism to work would mean that no one is actually free. The First Amendment, Second and the rest would have to be subject to the UN Council of unelected officials. For the Christian, that would mean we would no longer be able to practice our religion, and for the Atheist? They would be in the same boat with no protection from a “state religion.” Perhaps, that is a bit too simply put, but truth be known true Christianity and socialism cannot be the bed-fellows that liberals falsely claim. Not that Christianity (as it presently is in its broken stage), is only compatible with Theocracy and that is not likely to happen until Jesus comes. Then, as promised it will work in total peace for a thousand years.
The reason for me joining the Black Robe Regiment was that it was a non-denominational Christian presence in our war on liberalism and corruption of government it was, what seemed to be a Christian “regiment,” in the American war against corruption/liberalism/socialism/globalism and all of its anti-American hoards. Patriot American Christians who stand for the Constitution and the sovereign free republic.
Of course, all Christians should be patriots although all patriots are not necessarily Christian, as a matter of theological fact, not all Christians are Christian. That fact is, or rather could be a problem for the Regiment to reach its potential in making a difference in the battle we face. So as Christians we must examine ourselves, whether we be in the faith; prove (test) ourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? (2Cor. 13:5 NKJV (my paraphrase).
I am not suggesting the Christians who are part of The Black Robe Regiment are not Christian, no not at all, as a matter of fact, it is my studied opinion that each is just what they say they are. I believe, they really want to get involved and commit to winning the war! Some joined to show support for the fighting regiment. The Regiment needs the support and more members who are committed to Jesus Christ and are patriotic conservatives with really thick skin!
I expect to be put out of the Black Robe Regiment because of my problem with liberalism. That is where our national problem is rooted. Christians have been persecuted since before they were first called Christians at Antioch. But, we can’t blame Jesus for not warning us, he said we would be persecuted for His name’s sake and that the world would hate us because it hated Him first.
It is said that more than half of the professing Christians don’t ever vote, and that of those most are not even registered to vote. For some reason, as Christians, they don’t consider it an obligation to vote even engage in politics what so ever. Could it be, that liberalism has intimidated them into believing Hugo Blacks Supreme Court Decision about Church and State? Or maybe when the Supreme Court Decision to okay the execution of millions of unborn children? Perhaps it could have been the embarrassment of Prohibition brought on by the Christian temperance ladies.
Christianity and over zealous preachers and leaders have made some huge mistakes since landing in Boston Harbor, and that is to be accepted and considered a lesson in how not to delineate the love of Jesus to people not of the church. Speaking of the church, well, I would refer to the Seven Churches of Asia Minor, and how, like the Hebrew Children had such a hard time getting it right. The church like a pendulum swings to and fro on “saved to by grace through faith unto good works. We have some sort of problem with church doctrines and of course, what we should be doing in Biblical doctrines.
Since the landing at Boston Harbor, the Christian church has been hot and cold, and instead of sticking to the Bible we as Christians have followed after our own appetites and although in most cases that has been trying to please God and man at the same time and that is impossible as you may well know. No, our problem is sort of explained in the Seven Deadly Sins and having an easy church is one huge calling card.
Most people I know, Christian or otherwise, don’t find a great joy in being persecuted and all the name calling, and just ugliness of persecution is enough to make the strongest of souls get rather jellied. Since the 60s the world has made deep erodes into the Bible-believing church. Liberalism has brought back the liberal theology (updated), and one of the big reasons for such a broken church in America today. I will try to stay clear of the liberal theology argument and its harm to conservative Christianity, and deal with organizing Christians to take up arms against the enemy.
The “arms” in this situation is the double-edged sword and the second weapon is the vote. The enemy is far more than political ideologies, it is the root of all destruction, it is Lucifer, or rather, Satan and in my opinion the author of socialism, liberalism, liberation theology, and social justice ideologies. Ideologies that are found in a Global Socialist Union. Just one plan of thousands that the diabolical Satan has to draw on in his war against Jesus and His Church, against the guaranteed freedom of religious expression.
My endeavor, my passion is Jesus Christ, Jesus of the Bible, the Bible as the living Word of God. It is also my endeavor to protect not only religious freedom but to protect our Constitution and our sovereign free republic. The United States was founded on Christian principles fact and not as the liberals have spent 5 – 6 decades trying their level best to discredit the Christian faith, the Bible, and the Christian connection to the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. Liberals deny the religious freedom and use Justice Hugo Black’s “Separation of Church and State” decision to start the persecution of the Christian faith.
The Christian faith at this point is in critical need of another great awakening. A revival that the Christian may repent and return to our first love, the love for Christ and the excitement of being set free … “saved by grace through faith unto good works” don’t know about you but that was my first love, my first real commitment was as a young man leaving Highschool and taking the Oath of Service (office) in the Army, that oath was not infringed until my total commitment to Jesus and the Christian faith. Both were more than a head knowledge both were made from the heart. Revival is awakening that same excitement and renewing the nearly forgotten commitment. The Black Robe Regiment is the place for you to commit to pick up arms and commit to fighting head-on in a Holy War and not an easy war.
Vote go out and vote! Vote Red, vote conservative, report any suspicions of voter fraud!
Then go and check out the Black Robe Regiment … join … and pick up your cross and follow Jesus. Commit to the revival in our nation and restore our land as a Christian nation.
Many Christians wrongly think they are not supposed to get involved in politics. It is my studied opinion that not only are we supposed to get involved but are obligated to get involved, otherwise, dear Christian we get what we presently have, Broken Church and that is not what Jesus wants and is reflected in His Seven Churches of Asia Minor. Our lack of or fear of involvement has given us the liberal theology churches where it is E-A-S-Y church. liberal theology churches can be found in the five condemned by Jesus.
I may not be long for the Black Robe Regiment because of my disdain for liberal theology and liberation theology. If your church does not have in its mission statement the inerrancy, the infallibility of the Word of God, The Deity of Jesus Christ, and Salvation by Grace through Faith in Jesus unto good works and is any way politically correct then leave and find one who does … if your preachers do not preach against homosexuality, against abortion, and sin in general then run and find one that does.
If your church is not taking Jesus to the community by doing the good works and being involved in the community then you will lose, find out which one of the Seven churches your church may be like, perhaps more. Revival will never happen in a liberal church or a worldly church. Can’t, because they don’t have the intestinal fortitude get in the trenches, pick up their cross and follow Jesus. They don’t have enough Jesus in them to preach the Bible and preach against sin and corruption in the church and in our nation’s politics. Vote get out and vote!

Okay, So When are they going to fire?

Shareholders Rake Anti-Gun Dick’s CEO Over Coals During Public Shareholders Meeting

Now, Dick’s Sporting Goods is hearing from its stockholders.

Since the company reacted to the February massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by betraying its customers who support the Second Amendment, Dick’s has been hit by the gun industry, from street-level stores to corporate decision-makers.

But at a shareholders meeting on Wednesday, Dick’s heard from people with skin in the game.

In a direct attack on Dick’s CEO Edward Stack and other members of the company’s board, shareholder David Almasi, vice president of the National Center for Public Policy Research, raked the company’s leadership over the coals.

To the company’s top officers, Almasi charged, “virtue signaling” was more important than the company’s sales.

After the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Dick’s announced it would no longer sell AR-15s (the “assault weapon” liberals hate the most these days) and would restrict firearms sales to those 21 years of age or older.

Those might be considered defensible business decisions, perhaps with worries about liabilities in mind, but Dick’s directors went even further, hiring an anti-gun Washington lobbying firm to actively work against Second Amendment freedoms in the nation’s capital.

Almasi cited that decision in particular in his attack.

Listen to the whole thing here:

After the Parkland shooting, Almasi said, “Dick’s Sporting Goods immediately engaged in corporate virtue signaling, by ending the sale of AR-15s, high-capacity magazines and other accessories. Dick’s also no longer sells guns to people until three years after they’re eligible for military service.

“In addition, Dick’s reportedly hired lobbyists to promote gun restrictions, even though you’re literally in the business of selling guns …

“The company is willfully giving up money. It’s damaged its reputation by lending its voice and its resources to those who want to abolish the Second Amendment, even while the vast majority of … citizens support the amendment,” Almasi said.

“Thirty percent of Americans own guns and another 11 percent live with someone who does. Now you’ve alienated them.”

Will Dick’s regret its anti-gun positions?

According to Fox Business Network, Dick’s has made up for its losses in firearms-related sales in other areas and the stock has risen by 13 percent over the past month.

Liberals like the crew at ThinkProgress are crowing that that proves the Dick’s critics are wrong, but it could well be a short-term effect from the political moment. Dick’s got a lot of headlines out of its anti-gun stance, and liberals could well have decided to patronize the stories because of the publicity.

In the long-term, though, Dick’s has a vested interest in pleasing its outdoors customer base, and its anti-gun decision was a flagrant snub to millions of Americans who could well have been spending their money at Dick’s instead of at a competitor. And shareholders don’t like having company executives who are “willfully giving up money.”

It’s likely not the last time Dick’s shareholders rake the company execs over the coals.

A Deep Concern …

Nearly Four In Five College Departments Don’t Employ A Single Republican

To set foot on an American college campus, as anyone who’s spent a picosecond thereabout lately can tell you, is to step through a left-wing looking glass. But a jaw-dropping new study from the National Association of Scholars (NAS) reveals just how deep the rabbit hole goes: among tenure-track college professors at the nation’s top-ranked liberal arts schools, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans by more than 10 to 1.
Rather than culling data from some voluntary survey, the report uncovers the political leanings of 8,688 elite academics by cross-referencing publicly available voter registration information with faculty lists from 51 colleges. At these schools, “78.2 percent of departments do not employ a single Republican.” And that’s just the topline.
The numbers below the fold, broken down by college and field of study, are even more alarming. Over at Wellesley College, perhaps best known for fostering pantsuited diplomats and disdain for the late Barbara Bush, there are 136 Democrat professors for every Republican. More than a third of the colleges assessed have ratios of at least 20-to-1.
At the low end of the spectrum are schools like the Naval Academy, where still more than twice as many Ds as Rs appear at the front of the lecture hall. Lopsided leanings are also evident in key disciplines, such as environmental studies (25-to-1), the humanities (32-to-1), and sociology (44-to-1).
Even If You’re Liberal, This Is Bad News
Look, it’s news to no one (except maybe the frequently confused Matt Yglesias) that the Left smothers conservative thought in academe. But at this magnitude, the consequences go far beyond who gets to wear tweed jackets with elbow patches. Each year, America’s universities ingest millions of bright but ideologically inchoate young people fumbling towards adulthood. Failing to expose them to an extensive menu of different ideas is a sure recipe for parochialism and intellectual indolence.
Even those who would welcome a unanimously liberal generation of Americans must recognize that a mind untested is as useful as a pencil unsharpened: it may be the tool you need, but good luck filling out your Scantron. The most valuable test of one’s worldview is to be confronted by an earnest exponent of a different or even contradictory one.
Moreover, consider the impact of straitjacketed thinking on academic inquiry. Despite being lavished with billions by American taxpayers, the social sciences are engulfed in a vexing replication crisis. Hundreds of findings once considered axiomatic have been impossible to reproduce, casting doubt on entire corpuses of published work in some disciplines.
Is this really all that gobsmacking, however, given the tool we use to appraise its validity? Peer review aims to ensure that academic evidence can be trusted by subjecting it to the rigorous scrutiny of reviewers with expertise comparable to the author. Yet as activists and politicians grasp ever more desperately at studies to lend scientific heft to their policy wish lists, academic research has become increasingly politicized. A panel drawn from a cohort of homogeneous thinkers cannot be expected to fairly assess evidence that has a political impact.
Look no further than the Implicit Association Test (IAT), a tool social psychologists developed that purports to measure unconscious prejudice. After being cited in more than 3,000 peer-reviewed papers by “psychologists [desiring] to help solve social problems,” and eagerly circulated by fellow travelers in the media, it was revealed that the test returns wildly unreliable results and has no impact on discriminatory behavior.
Despite failing to meet basic scientific standards, the IAT has been taken by more than 17 million people worldwide, featured in multimillion-dollar federal grants, and made the centerpiece of countless corporate diversity workshops. These academic blunders carry a price we will continue to pay until we recognize the limitations of peer review in an echo chamber.
This Means the ‘Consensus’ Is Tilted
The same applies to the notion of “scientific consensus,” commonly aired today in discussions about climate change. In 2014, noted demagogue John Oliver excoriated the media for daring to present viewers both sides of a political question by holding a “statistically representative” mock debate. To illustrate the percentage of scientists who agree on climate change, he trotted out 97 extras in white coats to shout down three climate skeptics.
To this profusion of unintentional irony, the NAS study adds another nugget: the 25-to-1 partisan ratio among environmental studies faculty means that out of professors who declare for a party, 96.2 percent are Democrats. By no means does this invalidate the conclusions of climate scientists. But policymakers should be aware that the oft-cited “consensus” is not necessarily a meeting of purely objective minds.
Let’s face it: the academy’s ability to perform credible peer review and proclaim scientific consensus will be hindered until it reclaims ideological pluralism. But how? The study argues that, “[t]he solution to viewpoint homogeneity may lie in establishing new colleges from the ground up” because reforming hidebound institutions “seems a very tall order.” Yet a vast new expansion, in the context of bloated federal outlays and overextended state budgets, seems even more improbable.
There is no choice but to reform existing universities, although it will take a Herculean effort from within to expand the institutional Overton window. These days, you can hardly walk through a quad without turning up some provost or vice chancellor underfoot, vowing to promote diversity. It’s past time for these administrators to show some mettle and apply that principle not just to race, sex, and creed, but to ideas also.
That means ceasing the assault on academic freedom and putting the kibosh on the heckler’s veto. Those interested in a truly plural discourse on campus should also think twice before reaching for the typical administrative pro-diversity playbook. Mandatory training seminars and hiring quotas are poor solutions, whomever they favor. Instead, we should take matters into our own hands.
Here’s How to Start
First, students and professors with divergent views must be bold enough to publicly voice them. The chilling effect of overwhelming viewpoint discrimination drives right-leaning prospective young academics into tight-lipped diffidence, if not different callings altogether. The magnetism of compelling mentors—visible evidence that conservatives indeed belong—is an indispensable counterweight that must be strengthened.
Meanwhile, freethinkers should join (or promote and support) nonpartisan organizations that defend viewpoint diversity and freedom of speech on campus, like the Heterodox Academy and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. The surveys, tools, and research that groups like these produce are materiel for the vanguard.
Finally, right-leaning professors should strive to play a larger role in peer review, though not a tendentious one. These panels should not become venues for ideological combat, but a variety of perspectives is a needed check on cognitive biases, to which even pedigreed scholars are susceptible.
It goes without saying that all this may come at a substantial individual cost, denominated in professional opportunities and even personal relationships. But it must be paid. Otherwise, partisan faculties will continue to gather momentum like heavy stones tumbling down a hillside. The few conservatives in academia must be willing to stand athwart these boulders yelling Stop, no matter the risk of being flattened. The integrity of the academy depends on it.
