People - Huckabee, Mike“If the Republicans want to lose guys like me — and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people — go ahead and just abdicate on this issue (gay marriage), and why you’re at it, go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either. Because at that point, you lose me. I’m gone. I’ll become an independent. I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand. I’m tired of this.” — Mike Huckabee, former governor or Arkansas, Fox News Commentator, and possible candidate for President for 2016 (The governor was speaking on American Family Association’s radio show Oct. 2014)

I’ve been where I hope Governor Huckabee and I hope others are heading for well over a year now. I’ve abandoned the Republican Party. They will NEVER be part of the solution. Their game plan is simply being less of a problem than the Democrats. The Republican Party’s moto might as well be “We’ll take you to hell in a hand-basket too… we’ll just do it slower than the Democrats.

Political Cartoon - 2014 08 08 - Lisa - On the Right Track

On social issues they have already abandoned us and on fiscal issues they are at best pansies or at worst hypocrites.

Case in point. The 2014 elections less than a month away. The Republicans think they have the Senate locked up; or at least the good chance of it… so what do they do before the election… Anyone, anyone (Ben Stein impersonation)? Nothing. They’re too afraid of the MSM (Main Stream Media) and their own stupidity. Granted both are real threats.

So what should they have done in your humble bloggers opinion? Take the easy layup; especially if that layup could possible achieve a goal these idiots haven’t been able to to even get close to in years; namely the dismantling of Obamacare.

The layup I am speaking of is…. Pass a simple, short, straight forward bill that basically reads “No bailouts for insurance companies. Period.” Of course most people would say “Huh? Of course those evil bastards shouldn’t get any government bailouts!” But that is exactly what it on the horizon, exactly what is the law of the land. It is the key part of Obamacare that paid off the insurance companies to go along. It is the corporate welfare, quid-pro-quo bullshit Obama and the Democrats pretend they are against, but practice all the time. It is exactly what was hidden in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and something the Main Stream Media has managed to keep hush hush.

Simply do the right thing. Do an easy thing. Something everybody and his dog would support. Remove the billions in bribes and pay-offs about to be sent to the co-conspirators in the Insurance Industry and they will abandon the Obamacare scheme. The whole mess will implode.

But what do the Republicans do? Anyone, anyone… they sit on their hands and grin stupid-ass grins with visions of power (the Senate) dancing in their heads.

Time to Cut Our Losses and Abandon the GOP.  It's time for a third part... the Tea Party

Rome - Fall of Empire[Our society is doomed. And there are certain signs of this: religious, political, and social. Here’s one…]

Brendan Eich (CEO of Mozilla) donated $1,000 in 2008 in support of California’s Proposition 8 and in defense of traditional marriage. It cost him his job. And the fascist largely responsible are contemplating going after others who committed the same offense.

Billionaire Warren Buffet, the “Oracle of Omaha”, has donated $1,200,000,000 (that $1.2 billion) to abortion groups (from 2001-2012). A paltry $289,811,421 went to Planned Parenthood.

This is one of the reasons we can dismiss out of hand the lofty self-aggrandizing claims of Warren Buffet (and Bill Gates and the like) when they say they will give away much of their fortunes. THIS is their definition of that charitable act.

Those who give a pittance to one cause are not even worthy of employment in today’s leftist society; while others who give billions to the right (meaning left) causes are carefully insulated from that information even reaching the public.

We give thanks, oh lord, for the doctors, both current and future, who provide quality abortion care.
We pray for increased financial support for low-income women to access contraception, abortion and childcare.
Today, we pray for women in developing nations, that they may know the power of self-determination.
May they have access to employment, education, birth control and abortion.
Today we pray for the families who have chosen. May they know the blessing of choice.
We pray for women who have been made afraid by their paternalistic religion.
— prayer given to Midge Slater (Democrat Activist in Iowa) (participants included two Democratic candidates for Iowa Governor, Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson among many other… Democrats)

Christianity - Prayer - Hands Clasped (pic)Wow… the venom and hatred required for these people to do this is staggering… though not surprising. I don’t really think this was a prayer so much as a tool (blasphemy) to give their enemies a poke in the eye.

Of course I could be wrong. This may be a prayer to a non-Christian god. Perhaps they were praying to Molech (an ancient pagan god that the Canaanites worshiped; who required children as sacrifice).

Or, even worse, it could have been an actual prayer to God, the one true God.

We will all stand before God in judgment; and I understand none are righteous, not one. I can only hope and pray these people eventually see their actions and prayer for divine support to be an affront to God… and change their path.

To paraphrase Philippians 2 9-11, Ever knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

But not every confession will be one of joy.

Flower - RoseRecently the left celebrated the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Who did not celebrate this monument to “individual freedom” were 55,000,000 (that’s 55 million) individuals who were never born because of Roe v. Wade. That’s over a million children a year for four decades that never saw the light of day. These were carpenters, artists, doctors… some with brilliant minds who might have cured diseases or made any number of astounding contributions. Discarded for convenience…

Recently Obama surrounded himself with children (living children) to promote his upcoming attacks on the Second Amendment. He called them “the most vulnerable” in our society. Really? If Obama’s plans come to complete fruition (let us pray that they don’t) the left claims it will save upwards of 7,500 lives over the next several decades… vs. millions he is willing to let die…

We Christians catch a lot of grief defending the rights of children to be born; children who are wanted desperately by adoptive parents. But the world says we don’t “respect the woman’s right to her body”; not that we do respect the lives of the innocent.

We Christians also catch a lot of grief when we theorize that perhaps our national woes are because we have turned our collective national backs on God and are now suffering the consequences. But I admit, I feel this to be true; abortion being the greatest of our many national sins against God.

Abraham Lincoln said as much concerning American slavery over a Century ago “If God wills that [the war] continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s 250 years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said, ‘the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

Lincoln also said, “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.”

I have to admit I don’t live up to that latter ideal. I have malice towards those I see perpetuating the great sins of our nation; especially the sin of one million plus dead children in just the past year. I have malice toward those do not or will not see the right that is obvious.

I do hope and pray they see the error of their ways. I pray for wisdom which (I believe) would result in repentance (change). Failing that, I pray that their days in power be numbered and few.

For myself, I pray for the same. Wisdom, though it is sure to bring sorrow; Obedience, though it is sure to bring scorn; Faith, for I do not know His plans; and Patience, for I do not know His timing.

Hebrews 12:5-7
Don’t make light of the Lord’s discipline, and don’t give up when he corrects you. For the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child. As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as his own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father?

  • The DNC removed the term “God given” in one section the platform describing people’s potential.
  • The DNC platform dropped the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The removed wording was “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel.”
  • The DNC platform dropped its stance “to isolate Hamas until it renounces terrorism, recognizes Israel’s right to exist, and abides by past agreements.”
  • The DNC added much more emphasis on climate change (previously referred to as global warming). (18 references)
  • The DNC mentions the deficit half as much as climate change. (9 references)
  • The DNC omitted any reference to the balancing the budget. (0 references)
  • The DNC strengthened its support of abortion on demand.
  • The DNC added support for same-sex marriage.
  • There are a record number of Muslim delegates attending the DNC. (about 100)
  • There are a record number of gay delegates attending the DNC. (about 400)

I’m not saying that any one of these is good or bad. I just think they help reveal what the Democratic Party stands for.

As a nation we:  

  • Fundamentally abandoned the founding principles of our Republic such as individual responsibility, the rule of law, inalienable rights, & private property.
  • Accept as subjective the very ideas of truth, justice, good, and evil.
  • Proclaim our Constitution a “living document” so that it can mean anything; and thus means nothing.
  • Accept all cultures as equal, failing to teach our children our history, our culture, and the principles that made this nation great.
  • Betray our allies, while we coddle evil men in vain hope to placate “peace”.
  • Allow our press to degrade into a de-facto mouthpiece for a political agenda.
  • Accept as normal sexual promiscuity and cohabitation.
  • Accept as normal that 40% of children are born out of wedlock; setting in motion a spiral into poverty.
  • Allow fathers to shirk their financial and social responsibilities to their children.
  • Accept as normal/acceptable, homosexuality, bisexuality, transvestites, transgendered and other sexual deviance.
  • Try to legalize same-sex marriage (which seems inevitable); not to mention adoption by same-sex couples and other perversions of family.
  • Look upon unborn children as objects, as trash to be discarded simply because they are inconvenient AND there’s profit in the process.
  • Allow 50 million (that’s 50,000,000) children to be killed and ease our conscience with a nonexistent right “found” in the constitution.
  • Removed prayer from our schools, both organized and individual and now indoctrinate children with secular philosophy.
  • Worship false idols of the earth, nature, crystals, human hubris, etc…
  • Use tricks, statistics, and pseudo-science to push political and profit driven agendas with the truth be damned.
  • Wrap Marxist doctrine in a cloak of religion, misrepresenting salvation as a group ability to implement wealth distribution. (see liberation theology)
  • Riot when we receive a verdict we don’t like, when a professional sports team wins (or looses).
  • Reward failure, betrayal, and immoral acts with golden parachutes, and government bailouts.
  • Show no semblance of common sense when it comes to our spending habits. This is true for individuals, communities, states, and as a nation.

The list continues, with people and society making a deal with the devil to tolerate the intolerable so as to excuse their vices and to be accepted by the world.  

We are like gods!

 

Every generations believes it is living in the most morally bankrupt of times. Maybe every generation is right because of the ever increasing slouching towards Gomorrah. That said; I’m one of those people. Since the Biblical flood and the raising of Babel, Sodom, and Gomorrah; I believe we are more morally bankrupt than ever before. That goes for all categories; the human race, the West, the United States, etc… I look at our decline, our hubris, and wonder how the ancient fallen cities could have been any worse than we.  

At an early age I was a deist (one who believes that God does not take an active role in things), but too many coincidences (blessings and corrections) in my life and those around me have convinced me otherwise. So if I believe that God had and does take an active role in my life; why would he not do the same for larger groups or even nations? I think he does.  

Now this brings up other issues that I’m not addressing in this post; mainly because I can’t. If God takes an active role then why does he allow evil things to happen? And we’re talking really unspeakable atrocities… The simple answer is I don’t know; but I do know that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy; and in those things I simply trust in the wisdom and grace of God.  

That said, I think that we as a nation are turning our face from God, a process that began a good half century ago. I fear the consequences of such hubris as documented in the gospel and history.  

Cal Thomas in a recent column stated, “A nation that loses its moral sense is a nation without any sense at all. Muslim fanatics who wish to destroy us are correct in their diagnosis of our moral rot: loss of a fear of God, immodesty, especially among women, materialism and much more. While their solution — Sharia law — is wrong, they are not wrong about what ails us.” (Read Full Article Here)  

Mr. Thomas is dead on. We are like children that are convinced there are no consequences for our actions. The rod has been spared for so long… “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom”  

Psalm 111:10 (King James Version)… and we are a bunch of fools.  

As a nation we have endured for over 200 years. We have fought evil and tyranny. We have corrected ourselves when we strayed. We were great because we were good.  

But now, the great experiment has run its course. Now, the system has been broken (on purpose). Now we creep forward (never back) down the beautiful, well travelled, broad road of socialism; lead on by fools and villains.  

As we stand on the brink; though it is unlikely, though I doubt our resolve, though I doubt our character; it is not too late. We can turn from the promised man-made utopia. We can reject change and seek restoration. We can realize that this can’t be fixed by us. We can stop and turn around.  

2 Chronicles 7:14  

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Bart Stupak "pro-cover my behind" Democrat

The Senate bill provides for the federal funding of abortions. The Presidential order to the contrary is bull-shit. The left knows it. President Obama knows it. The Democratic Party knows it. And… Bart Stupak and his band of “pro-life” Democrats know it.

Really, there are no pro-life Democrats; just Democrats in pro-life districts. Bart Stupak and his clan don’t give a $^!# about stopping abortions or preventing federal funding of abortions. All they really want and need is the appearance that they care and tried to do something; anything to cover their bums when the truth is discovered.

Though it’s hidden in the convoluted language of the Senate bill; federally funded abortions are allowed. Here’s how. Specifically the bill requires the persons wanting the reproductive service of abortion to pay for that extra insurance out of their own pockets. This extra premium then goes into a special insurance company account to cover such procedures. Sounds fair… How much extra must they pay? Well, the insurance companies are required to use actuarial values to figure out how much more it costs them to cover abortions. Ahh, but the cost of covering an abortion is cheaper than covering the actual delivery of a baby; so guess what; this value using actuarial values could be less than zero. The Senate knew that the public would never stand for Uncle Sam paying people to include abortions in their insurance policies. So in the Democratic fashion, to cover their posteriors; the bill specifically states that when it comes to the extra premium the insurance companies “may not estimate such a cost at less than $1 per enrollee, per month”.

The whole gimmick lies in these two facts.  It is cheaper to kill a baby than carry one to term and deliver him/her into the world.  The extra costs to be borne (no pun intended) by those who want abortion coverage; is dictated to be the extra costs of aborting versus delivery, a negative number, OR $1 a month;  whichever is greater.

Abortion services piggy-backing on other insurance and the dictated method of calculating the costs result in practically free federally funded abortions.

Appearance:
The Senate bill requires those who want abortion coverage to pay for it out of their own pocket. The Presidential Order does nothing to change this but hey; if it can cover your bare behind and buy your vote…

Reality:
The minimum extra premium for abortion coverage is (and often will be) $1 a month. How many abortion doctors do you suspect work that cheap?

The Democrats have mastered the art of wrapping big lies in just enough truth to get it past the public; with the help of their partners in crime, the mainstream media. This is the norm and is to be expected. But what scares me is that there are those like Stupak with the moral emptiness to fain support of pro-life only to abandon their constituents once appearances are secured.  I have often wondered what it is like to sleep on a pillow of half-truths and rationalizations.  I hope I never find out.
