One Nation Under God

Happy Fourth of July – Happy Independence Day – Happy Birthday America!

Whichever you would prefer is fine by me.  But God Bless America is what I would like to say on this fourth day of July 2018, and the 242nd anniversary of our independence as a sovereign Republic.

The nation has had some troubled times, but Americans pulling together to overcome the threats against our nation and our freedom has always made us stronger and more united, more together.  However, liberal-socialism that budded in 1933 – 1945 (FDR and the UN) and just kept growing in liberal ideologies and blossomed with Obama’s presidency, but seems like it is wilting with the election of Trump who has so far, done a decent job of exposing the roots.

However, you must agree that Obama was the greatest divider known to history.  Obama splintered our nation where “We the People” actually have allowed liberalism split even the Christian church, and it is us (“We the People”), who own the shame and the following reasons we need to humble ourselves before God and our neighbors, confess our sin and pray seeking the face of almighty God asking Him to heal our nation!

The shame of …  and we the people must confess with our lips, our culpability.

We confess that:

We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word … and called it pluralism.

We have worshiped other gods… and called it multiculturalism.

We have endorsed perversion… and called it an alternative lifestyle.

We have exploited the poor… and called it the lottery.

We have neglected the needy… and called it self-preservation.

We have rewarded laziness… and called it welfare.

We have killed our unborn children… and called it a choice.

We have shot abortionists… and called it justifiable.

We have neglected to discipline our children… and called it building self-esteem.

We have abused power… and called it political savvy.

We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions… and called it ambition.

We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography… and called it freedom of expression.

We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers… and called it enlightenment.

Search us O God and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.  Guide and bless the men and women who have been sent to direct to the center of Your will.  I ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ … Amen.

This was a prayer given to open a session of the 1996 Kansas Legislature, by Pastor Joe Wright, who was asked to open the session.  The response was immediate when a good number of the legislators walked out during the prayer, and that was way back then.  I wonder if Kansas still invites Pastors to Open, or do they even still permit an opening prayer?  Liberal politicians have called this prayer racist, divisive, and offensive.  The Pastor was labeled as an extremist, intolerant, and hate-filled.

Think about it, where are our values?  Where is our integrity?  Where is our security?  Just where are we as a nation today?  Our condition is a shame.  And the shame must be on the conservatives who have allowed it to happen, we have failed to hold our politicians accountable.

So, I ask you to commit to praying for our nation every day using the 2Chronicles 7:14 guide.  Your commitment will be between you and God, it is like someone asking a Christian friend to pray for me or this or that and that request is soon forgotten because we are just that way.  “Oh yes I will Pray for you” … and as soon as we are separated we get caught up in the world and forget.  I used to shock people when, regardless where we were, I would grab their hand a pray for them or their need.

Father, we need your unconditional love and forgiveness, we need you to heal our nation, in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

 

Thanks R.S. Helms

 

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.

TRENDING: Smug NY Reporter Forced to Edit Out Racist Statement Printed About Kimberly Guilfoyle

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?

YesNo

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.

Something to Think About…

Considering the chaotic and splintered condition of our Nation and the broken nature of our Christian church, just about anything could happen.  The Nation and Christians has to do several things.  We need to walk Circumspectly paying close attention to everything around us, pray for discernment, strength and a national Christian revival.  We must join together with our real conservative leadership and get rid of the Shadow Government and Drain the Swamp.  We know, according to Bible prophecy, that we will suffer the period of a one world order and Christians will be under great persecution, however, only God knows the appointed time.  It is my studied opinion, that the time has not yet come, and for the Christian and the Nation to continue to move through life as a free Nation, we must crush liberalism’s plan for globalization.  Pray with me for revival, with the heart of 2nd Chron 7:14.

God Bless you.

AT&T-Time Warner Merger – Mass Media Consolidation Could Lead the Way to One-Party Rule in The U.S.

Posted Thursday, June 14, 2018   |   By Collaborative Correspondent  

Time Warner ATT
Control the Media – Control the People

A vibrant and healthy democracy depends on the free marketplace of ideas.

Call it what you want. Viewpoint diversity. Access to alternative views.

In today’s media and information-driven society and culture, being able to find the opposing view on an issue, to compare the pros and cons of public policy matters or different products and services, is critical to how the American people make decisions about just about everything.

What to buy? Who to vote for? What to watch? Which music to listen to? What to wear? The plethora of choices we have today is owed entirely to the openness of the Internet and other media that facilitates and enables brand development.

But what if that process could become compromised or disrupted in a bid to control media? To control what messages were available to the public? This is the very real danger facing policymakers today in an environment increasingly moving towards mass media consolidation.

With federal judge Richard Leon’s approval of the $107 billion AT&T-Time Warner merger, allowing the two companies to combine, the floodgates are opening for content distributors like AT&T — which owns Directv — to also own much of content that plays on those platforms.

Now, Comcast is expected to bid against Disney to buy much of Fox’s media content properties.

So, what’s the problem? Besides the antitrust laws that are invoked by monopolization in any industry, mass media consolidation has meant fewer and fewer companies controlling almost all major media in the country.

A comprehensive Free Press 2018 study on major media ownership finds that just 21 corporations own all the television broadcast stations, 21 that own the radio broadcast stations, 13 that own pay television channels, 11 that own daily newspapers and 18 that own telecom and cable. That number keeps getting smaller every time there’s another merger.

A chapter on the topic in Censored 2006 by Bridget Thornton, Britt Walters and Lori Rouse, “Corporate Media is Corporate America” noted the massive overlap of individuals who sit on the boards at major media outlets and those of non-media corporations.

Then there is the dominance in tech by Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.

Rapidly, the number of separately owned options is dwindling.

Along with media consolidation, there is also a growing call for political consolidation in Washington, D.C. — and even one-party rule.

In April, Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey retweeted an article by Peter Leyden and Ruy Teixeira that called for “Democratic One-Party Rule” in the U.S. as a means of reconciling the nation’s challenges and implementing the progressive agenda. You see, all that debate by Congress and disagreement over which direction to go in is getting in the way of that agenda, so democracy no longer functions the way they want it to. Today’s captains of the information industry are getting impatient. They want to see Utopia in their lifetimes.

It will be anything but.

But leaving that aside, forget about competitive elections, Leyden and Teixeira warn: “America can’t afford more political paralysis. One side or the other must win. This is a civil war that can be won without firing a shot. But it is a fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.”

The resolution: “Democratic One-Party Rule.”

Dorsey’s comment was astonishing, writing briefly, “Great read.” Really? What about the part where the authors called for one-party rule? What about the part where they called it a civil war? No?

Just, “Great read,” as if having one political party control the most powerful country in the world to govern with no dissent as the climatic outcome of a civil war “without firing a shot” was just an after-thought for the billionaire.

Who needs alternate viewpoints when there’s media empires to consolidate and an undemocratic agenda to implement? Just hurry up and work it into the afternoon schedule. Dictatorship by close of business. Can we get that yesterday?

Twitter like other social media giants cast themselves as an open platform, a device for free speech basically and the marketplace of ideas. But what if big media doesn’t live up to that and starts censoring political content of one of the two major parties in a bid for absolute power?

Would that be “anti-competitive” enough for Judge Leon to say it might pose an antitrust issue under federal law?

That is why the AT&T-Time Warner merger today is so important for the media landscape of tomorrow, and why the Justice Department must appeal Judge Leon’s decision, all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.

It may not happen overnight, but we are witnessing the end of media. This is the age of medium. And if we are not careful, one day there may only be one-party rule, too. That will not lead to liberty and prosperity, but to tyranny.

WILLIAM MURCHISON: Of the Baptists and the modern world

June 12, 2018

 

I live in amity with the Southern Baptists, whose general tolerance for my fellow “Whiskeypalians” I take kindly.

I wouldn’t dream of joining the media whoop-de-do over who among the Baptist faithful did what to whom, and when, and what to do now. You have read it all; I will not recount the imputations of Baptist sexism, patriarchy and the Lord knows what else.

There is a point, even so, to be made about life in an environment — this one — where religious standards of belief and behavior more frequently encounter scorn or indifference than support.

Without brushing off genuine concerns about particular attempts in Baptist ranks to downplay sexual aggression (all forms of sexual aggression are despicable, would you not say?) we need to look at the premises that make such aggressions possible and familiar.

Which are? Ah. Here we get down to brass tacks.

Leave the Rev. Dr. Paige Patterson out of this. The deterioration in male-female relationships over past decades has brought this thing to pass, and all the attendant misery and reproaches.

It is in part the churches’ fault. It is in part not the churches’ fault.

It is the fault, broadly speaking, of the modern supposition that the relationship of man and woman is for that particular man and that particular woman to figure out for themselves — never mind what Western culture and religion taught in the ages prior to Freud.

It will be noted, if one looks, that there was no #MeToo movement — no swelling demand for reckoning with male aggressors — until very recent months.

There was no such movement in the ’50s. There was no such movement in the ’40s. There was no such movement in the ’30s.

Which is a far cry from saying, “Gee, everybody sure was happy and content in them there old days!” It is more reasonable to say society lived by a different ethic than that which came to hold sway following World War II.

That is where the churches came in.

The male-female relationship, as the churches saw it, and tried to teach it, involved obligation. Personal expression was low on the totem pole as a cultural objective. There were limits.

These limits, under religious tutelage, society acknowledged. Sorrow and pain and cruelty, being elements of the human character, hung around the house and, often enough, broke out windows or set the place on fire.

But that wasn’t supposed to be the way of it. The way of it, according to the Christian principles America’s churches had been endowed with, was love; it was mutual forbearance; it was kindness toward, and respect for, others.

Personal, shall we say, “expression” — meaning, among other things, rape, humiliation, aggressive encounters with members of the opposite sex — ran counter to how the Good Book told it. There were limits. You needed to keep within those limits.

You didn’t, for instance, get a stranger drunk and carnal knowledge have of her — as rape statutes used delicately to phrase it. Families and social institutions of all kinds assumed responsibility for the observance of these necessary limits.

Until they didn’t. Until the churches, to put it another way, more or less gave up on proclaiming the value and worth of the old norms: acceding, in effect, to the modern clamor to let people do as they liked; adjusting the Christian message so as not to look old-fashioned and out of it.

The Rev. Joseph Fletcher, in “Situation Ethics,” stressed the need to avoid “stern, iron-bound do’s and don’ts,” along with “prescribed conduct and legalistic morality.”

Fletcher, was, well, um, I admit it, a fellow Whiskeypalian whom the Southern Baptists could accuse of helping fellow Christians, along with non-Christians, create a vast moral trash heap.

I ache for the Baptists at this juncture: victims of, as well as collaborators in, the moral confusion through which we lurch, yelling, denouncing, prosecuting, demonizing — everything but trying to remember what it was like back when the cultural rule of thumb was taken to be to love your neighbor as yourself.

William Murchison’s latest book is “The Cost of Liberty: The Life of John Dickinson.”

 

 

 

More Obama Fraud?

Reblogged from Nox & Friends … A charming piece of information to make us wonder even more about the depth of the Swamp.

 

SNAP = Fraud
By SafeSpace | March 30, 2018 | Alinsky, Barack Hussein Obama (asshole), Culture War, Democrats, Dumbassery, Entitlements/Free Stuff, Evil Left, Lefties
It never fails: Some leftist politician authorizes the distribution of millions of taxpayer dollars in the form of free stuff to “the needy”, then redefines “needy” as anyone who meets bullshit criteria that frequently DISregard income, employability and citizenship status. Magically, the number of “needy” grows exponentially, and millions more hands reach into the pockets of honest American workers. And the “free stuff” program descends into corruption and abuse.

This sequence of events played out at local, state and national levels bigtime during the eight years of the Batears Regime. King Putt encouraged officials in Appalachia USDA offices that dealt with the poor (both folks in actual poverty and those simply suffering from poverty of spirit) to destroy the ethic of self-reliance and corrode the respect for a day’s work for a day’s pay. His directives caused bonuses to be paid to USDA employees who recruited the most new SNAP enrollees. BHO replaced the time-honored work/paycheck equation with free stuff, available without the “stigma” of welfare through SNAP, the renamed food stamp program. Note that Soetero’s socialist approach was not limited to the Blue Ridge; it played out in different forms nationwide. States and localities that had large numbers of illegals also found ways to add ’em all to the SNAP rolls.

SNAP benefits can be grossly abused because the program actually exists for three purposes: Feeding the hungry, of course … but also building the culture of dependency on central government, and enlarging the Democrat voter rolls. By granting SNAP eligibility withOUT citizenship requirements, both the number of dependents and the level of fraud increases.
Judicial Watch presented the following report a few days ago … one more feather in JW’s war bonnet in their battle against leftard corruption.
Nearly 200 Busted in $3.7-Million Food-Stamp Fraud Operation
More than a year after the Obama administration slammed American taxpayers with a record-high tab to provide an unprecedented number of people with food stamps, the fraud continues full-throttle in the bloated welfare program. Authorities in north Florida arrested nearly 200 people for operating a sophisticated ring in which millions of dollars in food stamps were fraudulently exchanged for cash and drugs. Keep in mind that food stamps—renamed by the Obama administration Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to eliminate stigma—are designed to help nourish the nation’s most needy.
For years Judicial Watch has reported extensively on the rampant fraud in the program that cost U.S. taxpayers a bewildering $80.4 billion in one year to provide a record 46 million people with the welfare benefit during the Obama tenure. Even then, a federal audit revealed that many who didn’t qualify for food stamps received them under a special “broad-based” eligibility program that disregards income and asset requirements. The expansion was part of the former president’s mission to eradicate “food insecure households” in the U.S. To accomplish it, the administration spent millions of dollars on ad campaigns to recruit more food-stamp recipients, even doling out hefty cash rewards to local governments that signed up the most people. One state even bragged about a $5 million performance bonus it got from the feds for its “swift processing of applications.”
Not surprisingly, the food stamp program became a hotbed of fraud and corruption. Recipients use social media to illegally sell and buy food stamps online and others use the welfare benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors, according to a federal audit that also says some trade food stamps for reduced amounts of cash. The fraud costs the government hundreds of millions of dollars, the audit discloses. This was back in 2012 when the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the agency that distributes food stamps, told Congress about the serious issues plaguing the program. Things got so out of control that the Obama administration dedicated $7 million to crack down on food-stamp fraud in 2014. Among the anti-fraud initiatives that the money funded were strategies to identify and successfully investigate attempts to buy or sell SNAP benefits online using social media such as Facebook, Twitter or ecommerce websites like Craigslist and eBay.
More than a year after Obama left the USDA program in disarray, the scams continue. In the recently busted Florida operation, more than 22,000 fraudulent transactions totaling $3.7 million were documented by a task force of local and federal authorities. It has been coined Operation Half-Back and a Jacksonville news report says undercover officers personally observed 115 individuals commit 390 fraudulent transactions involving food stamps. In most cases the food-stamp recipient took 50 cents per $1 in benefit. Some of the corrupt vendors were stores but many were mobile businesses that sell food and have USDA approval to accept food stamps as payment. Among the biggest offenders are a produce business that recorded 7,164 fraudulent transactions for $1.1 million, another that had 7,390 transactions totaling $1 million, a seafood store that recorded 3,958 transactions for $1.2 million and a mobile meat vender that had 3,958 fraudulent transactions for $572,282.
The undercover sting started back in 2012, the year the Obama administration shattered food-stamp records. Law enforcement agencies created fictitious businesses, according to the Florida Attorney General’s office, which disclosed last week that more than 115 individuals have been charged with felonies and 61 others with misdemeanors. Though the federal government doles out food stamps, in Florida a state agency called Department of Children and Families administers it to provide nutrition assistance to vulnerable populations such as children, senior citizens and families in economic distress. “Food stamp trafficking steals from Florida’s hardworking taxpayers,” Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a statement. “The SNAP/EBT program is designed to provide services to the most vulnerable among us and for anyone to take advantage of this system is shameful.”
Florida seems to be a hotbed of food-stamp rackets. Less than two years ago the feds busted the largest food-stamp fraud operation in U.S. history in south Florida. Twenty-two defendants in the largely black and Hispanic areas of Miami-Dade County known as Opa-Locka and Hialeah swindled the government out of $13 million by fraudulently trading food stamps for cash. The crooked vendors operated food and produce stands at a local flea market as part of then-First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to eradicate “food deserts,” common in poor, minority communities where fresh, healthy food is tough to find or often unavailable. The feds say the business owners and their employees let food-stamp recipients use their welfare benefit to get cash in exchange for a cut of the money.

A Lot of Talk

Aviary Photo_131660526231178359

Of course, this is my opinion, the name of the blog “Bob’s Opinion,” should more than indicate that it is my opinion, my studied opinion but still an opinion. It is where I am able to say what is on my mind, what I think and what I believe. It is an “op-ed” journalism post of opinion. Now, with that said, we need to get on with this post “A Lot of Talk” part two, being pro-active in stopping mass murders, (mass shootings, or any shootings), and make it possible to restore the second amendment rights of the citizens of our nation.
Every time there is a shooting the knee-jerk reaction of the left wing is to stage demonstrations and fake news journalism to attack the second amendment and the right to bare arms. More gun legislation, and gun seizure. All this before the mainstream media hacks are giving their impersonation of a forensic autopsy and a complete dissection of the incident, and the shooter. Meanwhile the mainstream media and liberal politicians are pimping the tragedy.
A lot of talk as far as any serious measures to stop this madness of terror and slaughter of our innocent children and young people. We need action, and not more milking and pimping such an evil tragedy. If the amount of money that is spent by the left-wing radical activists and put it to work in PREVENTION we might get something done to secure the safety of the people.
The things that the shooters have in common is that they have some degree of mental or personality dysfunction; in other words, they are crazy as a loon. Okay some degree of personality dysfunction that creates a sociopathic or psychotic behavior trait that is really quite volatile, and we don’t want a meltdown episode. That is when they become violent and plan and execute mass murder. We need to be able to stop them from killing people especially children and young people. Another common trait is also a common trait found in terrorism, absolutely no value of human life.
There has always been those who commit mass murder, but not in the rate of occurrence that there is now. There is motive and triggers that need to be addressed, but, first the individuals or individual must be identified, and their threat evaluated, as mental dysfunction, criminal, terrorist, or just radicalized beliefs. and still within due cause and due process. However, as President Trump pointed out if we start with due process first, it could be the process that takes away valuable time, time that no one knows will end, we must assume the fuse has been lit and no one knows how long it will burn before BANG!
Don’t for one-minute think that all mental cases are dumb, no they are some mental people that are brilliant, able and have no fear. Four prerequisites for a planned attack. And of course, with the people that we are dealing with one thing is really not totally in place and that is the fear factor. Most will pick a soft target, it is easy and poses no resistance. Why do you think the socialists want to take our guns away? There will be no resistance during a mass takeover.
Nonetheless, the first obstacle is to identify the potential shooter or shooters. I doubt if strange behavior would cause enough attention to get reported as it now stands and most citizens would fear a lawsuit, it is coupled with identifying possible intent along with behavior. The police have a probable cause detainment at the present, it however, is only good for 72-hours at a psychoanalysis ward in the hospital. It is used for sociopathic and psychotic episodes and is to provide the patient with a period to reduce the acute anxiety or psychotic episode or to reestablish medication schedules, or detox, then to provide behavior observation, diagnosis, and proper prescription medication reaction. There is simple not enough time in a 72-hour sociopathic or psychotic observation, let alone the other areas of diagnosis, observation and treatment.

With the presumption that we need to identify the mentally ill and get them treatment, will not to rain on anyone’s parade, but, any one that will commit mass murder has a sociopathic episode if not a severe psychotic event, or a delusional or terrorists. This must be understood before they murder someone, but identifying the potential killer and the threat the individual or group individuals pose, is where it may get tricky.
It could be tricky because of the liberal shadow government fine-tuned by the Obama administration. That if the suspected shooter is Muslim, Black, Hispanic, or under the age of 21, the policy of hands off has been applied, or so it may seem. And the banning of profiling as a means to help identify a suspect was truly a means to block law enforcement from effectively doing their job. I remember how the MSM played Obama’s comment of the legal Mexican family out to get an ice cream on a Sunday afternoon being stopped and questioned by police, as his attempt to justify his lawsuit against Arizona and to protect the innocent from police harassment – Phooey! In reality it was his way of allowing more illegal aliens in to vote Democrat. But with those he also granted free passage to the Mexican gangs, and drug dealers.
It could get tricky because of what has been just a lot of talk in the press and all of it is postmortem. After the finger-pointing is all over with and the liberal press has used up its last fake witness and goes silent until the next mass murder. It has become so bad that it has to be mass murder by a semiautomatic weapon before it gets press.
The time has long passed to start working on preventing the mass murderer from killing his or her first victim. Before I get into my opinion of how-to procedures, I must address a couple of things that are so wrong with America today. If the wrongs are not addressed and solved there is no chance of doing a proper job of prevention. Like crisis counseling, or drug counseling, the first thing that must happen is light must shine on the wrong, unless a patient accepts the problem(s) anything done is only a Band-Aid. Here today, the patient is the American people and until we can shine light on the problems and accept them we will never be able to protect the second amendment or protect the public against mass murderers. We need to address our culture and what it has become. It does not mean “going backwards” like Hillary and Pelosi claim. Restoring our values and integrity is the starting point of healing our splintered culture. Insisting on what liberal’s institute as political correctness has done just the opposite of healing, it actually has brought more harm. Treating people with respect and dignity would have healed more of the divisions. But political correctness used as a weapon against conservatives is not only wrong but by necessity builds more hate and division.
Aside from liberalism our nation faces one of the greatest challenges in our history, and that is our splintered culture. How can we fix our culture when our people are so divided and under such strong evil delusions? How do we fix our smashed moral compass?
We must look at the mess we call our culture, the one that Obama bragged about as he apologized to foreign nations as he bowed before their kings and dictators. And tried to convince the people of the United States that America was something it was not. His infamous words were “and that’s not what America is about.” Before he was elected the first time he made the statement that Christians just wanted to poke along clinging to their Bibles and guns, then said to his liberal brainwashed imps “but that’s okay, we will push on without them – leaving them in the dust of history, and not into change.” Change to Obama was a Global Socialist Union.
Well Mr. Obama, you and the three who preceded you, along with corrupted politicians and the Deep State, are to blame for what is our present condition, and the blood of the people including the children is on your hands not the NRA or the guns. You and the liberal policies since the 1960s has finally came to fruition in the Obama administration.
Okay so now that we have placed the blame, and rightfully so, on the liberals and liberal ideology of socialism, we can look at the aftershock of it all, our nation has shattered its once proud culture that moral values, integrity, ethical practices and what was an advancing social unity. A nation that was teaching the three r’s and the fourth r is respect for authority, moral values in our homes, where kids were raised up respecting their parents and honoring them, they were raised understanding social values and decency, modest dress, and that there is a difference between males and females and how our culture has lost respect for our women, our values have been trashed by politics and liberalism.
Our value of life has been trashed through abortion, and senseless violent demonstrations. Our value of respect of others property has become a myth among the millennial liberal activists and “liberal community organizers” or as I prefer to call them conspirators against law and order, against anything decent. Since the 1960s the free thinkers have become more and more radical anti-American, pro liberal socialism as though they are under some sort of evil delusion, following yippy skippy after false heroes and a utopia promised, that can never be realized by a liberal socialist Republic.
One would seldom suspect that liberalism was festering like a big boil, since FDR, but it has, just, at times, it was more open than others, corruptness in our politicians and the actual race dividing “New Deal of Johnson and the Civil Rights Act of the Kennedy’s (Kennedy just didn’t live long enough to sign it), would produce such anti-American Activists such as Al Sharpton, and Jessie Jackson, but it has produced even worse in black and Hispanic racism against the Hinze-57 white man, where it is okay for celebrities and politicians to call for the killing of all white people, and if someone says the sky is blue, you are tagged a racist, where hypocrisy is the normal of liberalism. Obama’s policies over eight years has done more harm to our American culture than any other administration in history.
Folks, just step back for a moment and really take a look at the condition of our culture, then actually think of any bonafide reason that we should be astonished at such horrific evil as mass murders? We must admit that there is a problem with the mental dysfunction of all the killers. Muslim Jihad and Sharia Law, has encouraged, not only Muslim Terrorist, but all terrorists, to rape, kill, and destroy anything or anyone who don’t agree with them.
However, our American culture is not totally lost, and with the help of God we can regain our land and our people from the evil delusion that has perpetrated its evil into our millennial generation. We simply need to expose the evil heroes and replace them with real heroes with morals and integrity. The same with the politicians and celebrities.
Meanwhile, we need to be able to identify and nullify those with, or without, mental dysfunctions before they need to be a top priority of law enforcement on the local, state, and federal level and the subject of the media’s post mortem forensic analysis. Profiling is actually not a dreadful thing, and it does give results, while protecting everyone’s Constitutional Rights. It is a constitutional right for a citizen to live and to possess a firearm or firearms. It is not the authority of law enforcement to seize a firearm without due cause or due process, and there is where we have a problem in defining what is due cause.
Law enforcement should respond to all notifications of concern, in an investigative intent, first point of contact should be to make physical contact with the person making the report of concern, to establish if the concern is actually warranted. The second is to contact the subject or subjects of the concern. It is then the responsibility of the trained officer (and situation evaluation is part of officer training), if the officer determines the threat exists, then he should detain the subject for observation by a trained and equipped person or team, and a background investigation be performed as due process.
It is simple and does not require any more laws than are already exist, except the limit of 72-hours. 72-hours should be the minimum, and 120-hours limit for observation, then panel review to determine the mental instability and recommend no further action or treatment or should be held for further treatment, or placed on a watch list, with the subject’s behavior monitored. If the evaluation result be considered safe, then legal arms be returned, as due cause has been satisfied. If not, then due process needs to be acted on to permanently remove the firearms. Due process can be started in the courts at time of detainment with due cause.
I believe that this is just a jab in the dark opinion, but serious actions need to be taken to remove potential threats to the safety and wellbeing of the community. However, while getting the bad people and their weapons off the streets to nullify any threat, law enforcement must not be able to take away the 2nd amendment rights of any citizen. We need to nullify bad people before they have the opportunity to murder innocent citizens.
End sanctuary cities, end any amnesty for illegal aliens, create laws dealing with gang activities and gang associations, define terrorist groups and put them on a watch list. But it depends on restoring our culture to have any real long-term effect. We must do what we need to do while we fix our nation’s moral compass.

Culture Not Guns

 

It Is Not About Guns It Is About Culture

It is my sincere heartfelt sympathy for the family and friends of those who were so senselessly taken by a deranged vile outcast.  My prayers are for the comforting and healing of our Lord Jesus Christ, he is the comforting source of my faith, and to whom I seek to touch in your grief and sorrow.  God comfort you all in your season of extreme sorrow.

 

Now, days after this horrific, vile and depraved atrocity perpetrated against the youth and staff of this high school in Parkland, Florida.  Truly a Valentine’s Day massacre which is just becoming truly dissected by the liberal mainstream media.  They initial intrusion onto the grief-stricken parents and loved ones by the unethical journalists who have no integrity left in their shamefully disrespect, to bait and manipulate the families and friends of the victims to promote their particular liberal spin.

That spin is developing into guns as the culprit, and that is their developing spin in order to support liberal politicians calling for stronger gun control.  Folks it is not to do with the guns, it is a proven fact that anyone, mental or criminal, who as fact holds it, guns are probably more available for illegal sale on the streets than are for legal purchase in the licensed gun dealer’s shops.

There is a causation which is purposely ignored by the Mainstream Media, the liberals in Congress and RINOs who are lower than whale dung in the bottom of the sea.  From the time of George HW Bush who embraced the UN’s Agenda 21 until Obama boarded Marine one for the last time.  Since Kennedy and Johnson’s Civil Liberties Act. Which was unnecessary if the enforcement of the Constitution would have been properly handled, as it was and is, the Act. was intended to help build the black voter base, off the civil rights marches of Dr. Martin Luther King, who’s target was the Democratic South’s Racists and racist politicians who used intimidating and vile cruelty creating a victim mentality.  But this knowingly would create division driving the dependency of the black community to depend on the Democrats (liberals) and therefore insurance of votes for the liberals.

That is just the start of the divisions of our culture, systematically civil liberties incorporated the homosexual activist, the Hispanic illegal alien activists, NAACP activists, Nation of Islam activists, radical women’s rights activists, the environmental tree-hugger activists and ACLU Atheists and Muslim Refugees.  The list goes on and with each election the anti-America radicalism of the left gets more active, protected by corrupt politicians and the liberal pro-UN Agenda 21 Deep State, of our most vile and corrupt bureaucracy upper tier, unelected agency officials, which have created a Shadow Government above the law.

Politicians seem to be above the law, void of moral values, integrity, and respect for the Constitution, or the American citizenry.  Money and the delusion of power has corrupted the government which was established by the people for the people, and all have failed on the issue of their oath of office to preserve and protect the constitution and the people of the United States against all enemies from without and from within.  Their failure borders treason, and in some cases, we are finding out that it is treason.

Point is our culture consists of a number of sub-cultures, under some sort of delusional future utopia exempt from law, work, and responsibilities.  The only way there is by destroying the nation that held its citizens accountable to the law, a nation of laws, values and integrity.  A nation that built a justice system on God’s law, so in order to overcome values and integrity of the out of control leadership would have to carry what is left of our culture.  The subculture has the task of completely liberalizing God, and which of the subcultures can then create their own god and value system, based on the example of their lawless leaders.

In this state of delusional rebellion with the pursuit of utopia there comes a clash of the human nature and moral responsibility resulting in various degrees of emotional and behavior problems.  As early as grade school unqualified teachers and counselors in your child’s school are making a diagnosis of your child’s behavior according to what the guidelines of the Department of Education may indicate, a mood or behavior drug is prescribed.

All these drugs are prescription why?  because they’re dangerous aren’t they.  The list of side effects would scare the socks off most parents. But we have no say, or at least we didn’t have much of a say if you want to continue to use public education.  Folks, after the failed attempt of Obama to implant “Common Core,” throughout the education system, originally without any optional uses of the common core agenda.  So, even before common core happened along, these so-called mood or anti-depression drugs were being distributed among the children like lollypops, mislabeled and misleading incomplete side-effects warnings.

Point is that in all the cases of school shootings, one fact is common, the gun never acted on its own volition and caused the death of anyone for any reason.  It is simply not the fault of the gun!  No matter how you want to slice that pie, it is still a reality check.  So, I think it is time for all these sociopathic liberal gun grabbers to maybe do their own investigating for other substantial causes that make people do what they do.  Then do the unheard of, empower local law enforcement more access to internet investigation on persons of interest, before the fact, after thee fact does not help a dead student, or grieving parent, after the fact or the “knee jerk reaction.”

Empower the people and law enforcement to intervene and get the help needed for the nutcase before that person shoots, bludgeons, stabs, poisons, or some other means to inflect death on another person.  Then allow the sociopath at the top to blame something other than what it really is.

It is not the mental illness, or the dysfunctional personality traits, not even the sociopathic or psychopathic behavior syndromes that are the cause. It is however, the lack of detection, and the lack of ability and freedom to investigate, confine and treat, BEFORE the person kills someone or themselves.  Treatment has to be correct and effective, diagnostics and medications absolutely needs refining, so some narcissistic or inapt social nurse don’t have the ability to prescribe medication and treatment but that the proper protocol and evaluation teams confirm treatment.  It is sad when a whole culture caves to subcultures and evil.

With all that’s been happening over the past four or five decades, none compare to the last eight years, as far as lawlessness, not only in government but in all so-called celebrities, and just simple stupidity, it is no wonder that people are upset listening to the vile rhetoric and fall  under the delusion that they too are above the law.  With what is happening in this vile evil world, I simply hope we soon find out how to handle all the hate from the liberals, just a simple TV show cannot express an opposing view without it blowing their minds.  Just think of the triggers of some one who is suffering from a mental or personality disorder, and it seems like there is no one to help?

Just think… if you know someone who is suffering, and although they have been acting more and more strange, and you don’t tell someone, and that person snaps no one knows when or where, but if that person has missed getting help because you didn’t let the authorities know of the danger, … the buck could end with you, and how would you feel about a pile of dead students, or seniors, or a crowd watching a game, or Miss Baker’s third grade class, Miss Baker, the janitor who was fixing a light… tomorrows headline… could be your headline if we don’t find a way to legally intercede, Not disarm the first line of defense.  It is not the only thing we need to be looking at.  There is several areas, and illegal street guns is one of the biggest problems, and we can’t stop it until we actually find the sources, and shut them down.

Open the internet to the same rules as or revised rules of the FCC … extend the 72hour psychoanalysis evaluation to get a real diagnosis before they are released, and with that diagnoses the option of a six-month therapy in a lock-down facility.  And make the FBI and local authorities accountable for missing several alerts of an individual (as happened in the Parkland incident with the FBI).

As it stands with the 72hour psych ward evaluation, there is no way the counselor/case worker can make a proper diagnosis of an individual’s actual problem and prescribe the right psychoanalysis or sociopathic analysis and prescribe the right medication and evaluate the correct reaction.  So most are diagnosed with Bipolar and prescribed a psychotic or depression medication, which can, or perhaps not, go wildly wrong.  It is documented that 1in 25 and another study showed 1 in 1000 become violent. However, since that same year 19.2 million prescriptions for Effexor were filled in the U.S., statistically that means thousands of Americans might experience “homicidal ideation” – murderous thoughts – as a result of taking just one brand of antidepressant drug.

Of course, it is unlikely that psychiatric drugs are the entire cause of mass shootings.  However, it does indicate, that there is a lot of potential mass murderers running around. It is my studied opinion that detection and investigation by local and federal law enforcement including identifying internet users who are posting some of these suspicious posts, including those from gangsta and white supremacy thugs and radical lone-wolfs.

Our culture and lack of values, lack of integrity and the delusion that they are above the law has been promoted far too long.  But since the Kennedy Assassination, Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy, and the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan gun control has been a non-stop political talking point and a liberal attempt to disarm America and gain voters.  It is a shame that the liberal politicians use such a incident to fulfill their ideology of “Make the most out of a tragic disaster.”

Although facts show that gun legislation does not work, and the ban on semi-automatic weapons (assault rifles) was a complete flop. Gun laws have proven ineffective showing that take away the guns from the law-abiding citizens only leaves the lawless with guns.  It was also proven that some of America’s enemies did not invade American soil because most of the citizens were armed.  I don’t know where you stand on the issue of gun control, But the only law that I see working would be to free up law enforcement to be able to identify and investigate people who threaten violence in any manner against any other, or organization, or politician in office and law enforcement.  The threat posted on the internet or other means of communications should be just cause for a judge to issue warrants to investigate and seize evidence against any person or group, to include the mental/emotional dysfunctional, make sure they get the right help needed in a lockdown facility.

For the gangsta-criminal element it may mean prison time, but perhaps it will make our celebrities and politicians stop instigating violent behavior, and after they serve a jail sentence perhaps it will help put a dampener on all this BS coming from the liberal media, Hollywood, and civil rights activists like Sharpton, and most of the liberal groups.

That might prevent some of the mass shootings.  It will stop the liberals in congress from leading with the vile rhetoric that incites riots and instigates mass shootings.  Lock them up and expel them from Congress, but, that would mean locking up 80% of the Democrats and about 40% of the Republicans.

Fact is, we don’t need more gun laws, what we need is a restoration of our culture to moral values, integrity and respect in our local communities.  Guess we may be in a tight spot as it will take an act of God to heal our American culture.
