Hil and Huma…A Radical Islamic “Love” Story: Why Americans Cannot Allow These “Besties” Back in the Oval Office

“If Hillary Clinton, after this attack, still cannot say the two words ‘Radical Islam’ she should get out of this race for the Presidency,” – Now-Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. Trump, 6/12/16, referring to the Orlando Muslim Terrorist Attack, which left 49 Americans dead and 50 wounded.

The Now-Democratic Presidential Candidate refused to identify that American-killing Barbarian as a follower of Radical Islam for a very simple reason.

Clinton’s closest confidante is one.

The New York Post reports that

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.

One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign Web site is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee.

However, soon after that “historic and transformational” 1995 event, as Clinton recently described it, her top aide Huma Abedin published articles in a Saudi journal taking Clinton’s feminist platform apart, piece by piece. At the time, Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-First Lady Clinton.

Headlined “Women’s Rights are Islamic Rights,” a 1996 article argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families. It also states that more revealing dress ushered in by women’s liberation “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.” In other words, sexually liberated women are just asking to be raped.

“A conjugal family established through a marriage contract between a man and a woman, and extended through procreation is the only definition of family a Muslim can accept,” the author, a Saudi official with the Muslim World League, asserted, while warning of “the dangers of alternative lifestyles.” (Abedin’s journal was founded and funded by the former head of the Muslim World League.)

“Pushing [mothers] out into the open labor market is a clear demonstration of a lack of respect of womanhood and motherhood,” it added.

In a separate January 1996 article, Abedin’s mother — who was the Muslim World League’s delegate to the UN conference — wrote that Clinton and other speakers were advancing a “very aggressive and radically feminist” agenda that was un-Islamic and wrong because it focused on empowering women.

“‘Empowerment’ of women does more harm than benefit the cause of women or their relations with men,” Saleha Mahmood Abedin maintained, while forcefully arguing in favor of Islamic laws that have been roundly criticized for oppressing women.

“By placing women in the ‘care and protection’ of men and by making women responsible for those under her charge,” she argued, “Islamic values generate a sense of compassion in human and family relations.”

“Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender,” she claimed. “Acknowledging the very central role women play in procreation, child-raising and homemaking, Islam places the economic responsibility of supporting the family primarily on the male members.”

She seemed to rationalize domestic abuse as a result of “the stress and frustrations that men encounter in their daily lives.” While denouncing such violence, she didn’t think it did much good to punish men for it.

She added in her 31-page treatise: “More men are victims of domestic violence than women . . . If we see the world through ‘men’s eyes’ we will find them suffering from many hardships and injustices.”

She opposed the UN conference widening the scope of the definition of the family to include “gay and lesbian ‘families.’ ”

Huma Abedin does not apologize for her mother’s views. “My mother was traveling around the world to these international women’s conferences talking about women’s empowerment, and it was normal,” she said in a recent profile in Vogue.

Huma continued to work for her mother’s journal through 2008. She is listed as “assistant editor” on the masthead of the 2002 issue in which her mother suggested the US was doomed to be attacked on 9/11 because of “sanctions” it leveled against Iraq and other “injustices” allegedly heaped on the Muslim world. Here is an excerpt:

“The spiral of violence having continued unabated worldwide, and widely seen to be allowed to continue, was building up intense anger and hostility within the pressure cooker that was kept on a vigorous flame while the lid was weighted down with various kinds of injustices and sanctions . . . It was a time bomb that had to explode and explode it did on September 11, changing in its wake the life and times of the very community and the people it aimed to serve.”

Huma Abedin is Clinton’s longest-serving and, by all accounts, most loyal aide. The devout, Saudi-raised Muslim started working for her in the White House, then followed her to the Senate and later the State Department. She’s now helping run Clinton’s presidential campaign as vice chair and may end up back in the White House.

The contradictions are hard to reconcile. The campaign is not talking, despite repeated requests for interviews.

Until now, these articles which Abedin helped edit and publish have remained under wraps. Perhaps Clinton was unaware she and her mother took such opposing views.

But that’s hard to believe. Her closest adviser served as an editor for that same Saudi propaganda organ for a dozen years. The same one that in 1999 published a book, edited by her mother, that justifies the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation under Islamic law, while claiming “man-made laws have in fact enslaved women.”

And in 2010, Huma Abedin arranged for then-Secretary of State Clinton to speak alongside Abedin’s hijab-wearing mother at an all-girls college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. According to a transcript of the speech, Clinton said Americans have to do a better job of getting past “the stereotypes and the mischaracterizations” of the oppressed Saudi woman. She also assured the audience of burqa-clad girls that not all American girls go “around in a bikini bathing suit.”

At no point in her long visit there, which included a question-and-answer session, did this so-called champion of women’s rights protest the human-rights violations Saudi women suffer under the Shariah laws that Abedin’s mother actively promotes. Nothing about the laws barring women from driving or traveling anywhere without male “guardians.”

If fighting for women’s rights is one of Clinton’s greatest achievements, why has she retained as her closest adviser a woman who gave voice to harsh Islamist critiques of her Beijing platform?

For those of you who are not aware of the rest of Ms. Abedin’s troubling past and familial connections, here are some bullet points, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org…

Huma Abedin was born in 1976 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

…From 1997 until sometime before early 1999, Abedin, while still interning at the White House, was an executive board member of George Washington University’s (GWU) Muslim Students Association (MSA), heading the organization’s “Social Committee.”

It is noteworthy that in 2001-02, soon after Abedin left that executive board, the chaplain and “spritual guide” of GWU’s MSA was Anwar al-Awlaki, the al Qaeda operative who ministered to some of the men who were among the 9/11 hijackers. Another chaplain at GWU’s MSA (from at least October 1999 through April 2002) was Mohamed Omeish, who headed the International Islamic Relief Organization, which has been tied to the funding of al Qaeda.

[As detailed in the previous article] From 1996-2008, Abedin was employed by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) as the assistant editor of its in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA).

****At least the first seven of those years overlapped with the al Qaeda-affiliated Abdullah Omar Naseef’s active presence at IMMA. Abedin’s last six years at the Institute (2002-2008) were spent as a JMMA editorial board member; for one of those years, 2003, Naseef and Abedin served together on that board.****

Abedin went on maternity leave after giving birth to a baby boy in early December 2011. When she returned to work in June 2012, the State Department granted her an arrangement that allowed her to do outside consulting work as a “special government employee,” even as she remained a top advisor in the Department. Abedin did not disclose on her financial report either the arrangement or the$135,000 she earned from it, in violation of a law mandating that public officials disclose significant sources of income. Abedin’s outside clients included the U.S. State Department, Hillary Clinton, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation, and Teneo (a firm co-founded by Doug Band, a former counselor for Bill Clinton). Good-government groups warned of the potential conflict-of-interest inherent in an arrangement where a government employee maintains private clients.

On February 1, 2013—Hillary Clinton’s final day as Secretary of State—Abedin resigned her post as Mrs. Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Yet she would continue to serve as a close aide to Clinton.

On March 1, 2013, Abedin was tapped to run Clinton’s post-State Department transition team, comprised of a six-person “transition office” located in Washington.

Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is currently an associate editor with the JMMA. Hassan was once a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, at a time when the Center’s board included such Brotherhood-affiliated figures as Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Abdullah Omar Naseef.

Huma’s sister, Heba Abedin (formerly known as “Heba A. Khaled”), is an assistant editor with JMMA, where she served alongside Huma prior to the latter’s departure.

Speaking straight from the heart. as I always do, as an American Citizen, I find it beyond the pale that, during the time of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, someone with direct ties to our sworn enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood, had access to the highest level of Top Secret Information contained in our State Department, being sent to her over Secretary Clinton’s own unsecured e-mail Server.

And, the thing is, she not only had access through her job as Assistant to Secretary of State Clinton, she also had access to government information through pillow talk with her husband, then-Congressman and “Professional Sexter” Anthony Weiner.

Being the “proud Muslim” that she has proclaimed herself to be, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that this information found its way to her “troubling Familial Affiliations”?

Which brings up a troubling question:

Considering her familial ties, how deeply was Ms. Abedin involved in “BenghaziGate”?

Mrs. Clinton, as shown by her complete disdain for the American People and the laws which govern us, is unfit to hold public office.

The old axiom is true. We ARE judged by the company that we keep.

The fact that the Former Secretary of State continues to hold close to her, as her confidante, a young woman with a history of supporting Radical Islam and who possesses familial ties to Godfather of all Muslim Terrorist Organizations, the Muslim Brotherhood, shows how dangerous and untrustworthy that she truly is.

Hillary Clinton, and her closest friend and confidante, Human Abedin, must not be allowed access to the Oval Office ever again.

A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection: Social Justice and Democrat Promises…Paving the Road to You-Know-Where

August 21, 2016

untitled (87)Sundays, for many of us, are a time of reflection, as we think about the world around us, and the blessings which God has given us, including our family, friends, our jobs, and the privilege of living in the greatest country on the face of the God’s Green Earth.

As we go through the current Presidential Campaign Season, we, as Americans, need to pay close attention to what the candidates are saying, for the sake of our Children’s and grandchildren’s futures.

This past week, Susan Stamper brown wrote the following article, found on Christianpost.com…

Apparently, the Democratic Party’s latest strategy to win the White House in 2016 is “Let’s pretend to be religious.”

Now it’s all about Hillary’s faith, according to Democratic Party Vice Presidential hopeful Tim Kaine, who told a group in New Orleans that Hillary Clinton’s faith is at the “root of everything she does.” That’s quite a statement, considering all the years she’s been in the public’s eye.

Most likely, though, Kaine was referring to Hillary’s attachment to the “Social Gospel.” The Social Gospel is a cheap counterfeit for the real thing that liberals conjured up to promote socialism and at the same time relieve people from any guilt associated with living life according to their own standards, not God’s.

The Social Gospel crowd concentrates on scriptures that instruct us to help the poor and feed the hungry. They ignore the ones where Jesus told those he helped and fed to “go and sin no more.”

But, here’s the rub. If liberals really wanted to do things the right way, they’d do it themselves and not pass personal responsibility off to the government. Jesus never said governments are an acceptable replacement for lazy, no-good followers who refuse to do what he asks.

Obviously, Kaine was trying to paint Hillary in a softer, nicer light while at the same time courting right-leaning anti-Trump evangelicals. It’s a political ploy.

In May, Slate magazine ran a piece by Ruth Graham, “Can the Christian Left Be a Real Political Force?” — suggesting that Donald Trump’s rise in the GOP makes 2016 the perfect opportunity for the Democrat Party to win over anti-Trump evangelicals if they can find a way to lop their horns and replace them with halos to make them look like the “party of God.”

What the author, Tim Kaine and Democrat Party strategists fail to understand is that anti-Trump conservative Christians would never vote for Hillary. Nor will they be tricked by those bearing faux religion in the name of politics.

Graham did her best to make a case for liberal Christianity, writing: “It must first be said that despite the empty pews, there’s reason to believe that liberal Christianity has been dormant, not dead.”

In reality, those empty pews are what happens when we do things our way and cherry-pick the Gospel. A a Pew poll rolled out last year backs that statement finding that mainline church denominations embracing the Social Gospel like Hillary Clinton’s Methodist denomination are in decline across the United States. In sharp contrast, the same Pew poll found that conservative Christian churches are vibrantly alive and growing.

The Slate magazine author accidentally answers why “liberal Christianity” is little more than an oxymoron when she wrote: “There’s a cost associated with membership … churches that ask more from their followers tend to be stronger … Many progressive churches, by contrast barely demand a pinky toe … They don’t pressure me when I skip; the sermons rarely suggest it matters whether I believe the creeds … By contrast, when I visit conservative churches … they feel alive: People are there because they think it matters for their everyday lives and for their eternal souls.”

Those churches “feel alive” because they are … alive. It’s impossible to be truly excited about something that isn’t there. And it’ll never be there if it’s about politics rather than a personal, saving faith.

Graham concludes: “If there is to be a resurgent Christian left, it will need to learn a trick or two from the very movement [conservative Christian] that overtook it a generation ago.”

Tricks cannot revive that which never existed in the first place.

As C.S. Lewis wrote: “Once you have made the World an end, and faith a means … it makes very little difference what kind of worldly end he is pursuing.”

It’s a slippery slope, that road to Hell we’re headed, that American politics has deteriorated to this.

I also do not believe that Jesus would be a part of the Social Justice movement, advocated by the Far left Radicals of the Democratic Party, including Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton. His was and is a soul-saving movement. One that still brings hundreds of thousand of people to individual salvation on this terrestrial ball every day. A movement that, in fact, was embraced by the founders of this cherished land.

The Social justice Movement is an offshoot of Marxist Theory, named for the radical who conceived it, Karl Marx. it’s basic tenet states,

From each according to his ability to each according to his need.

The modern translation, provided for us by Sitting President Barack Hussein Obama, during his 2008 Presidential Campaign, is that working Americans need to “share the wealth”.

That, boys and girls, is “Socialism” and, in Marxist Theory, Socialism is the step before Communism.

A simple definition of Socialism describes it as

a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

In a recent opinion piece for ChristianPost.com, Christian Talk Show Host Julie Roys gave the following Five Reasons that Socialism itself is not based on  the teachings of Jesus Christ.

1. Socialism is Based on a Materialistic Worldview

According to socialists like Bernie Sanders, the greatest problem in the world is the unequal distribution of wealth.

His website declares: “The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, it is the great economic issue of our time, and it is the great political issue of our time.”

This betrays a fundamentally materialistic worldview, which is the basis of socialism.

To socialists, all that really exists is the material world.

2. Socialism Punishes Virtue

Socialists want to distribute wealth to individuals according to their need, regardless of virtue.

As Karl Marx, famously said, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”

However, whenever any institution provides aid, it runs the risk of removing God-designed rewards and consequences. It can punish those who are industrious by making them pay for those who are not. And, it can reward those who aren’t industrious by giving them the fruits of another man’s labor. This is precisely what socialism does.

Interestingly, Marx mooched off others his whole life, and failed to provide for his wife and children.

As Aristotle once noted, “Men start revolutionary changes for reasons connected with their private lives.”

The Bible teaches that aid should be tied to responsibility. First, anyone who refuses to work should be refused aid.

3. Socialism Endorses Stealing

Barack Obama once defended his socialist policies to a little girl by saying, “We’ve got to make sure that people who have more money help the people who have less money. If you had a whole pizza, and your friend had no pizza, would you give him a slice?”

That sounds pretty Christian, right? What Christian wouldn’t endorse sharing your abundance with someone who has nothing? However, Obama wasn’t endorsing people voluntarily sharing their wealth with others; he was endorsing the government forcibly taking a piece of the pie from one person and giving it to someone else. Put another way, that’s saying that if you have three cars and your neighbor has none, the government has a right to take your car and give it to your neighbor. That’s not Christian; that’s stealing!

But, socialists don’t believe in private property. And, some Christian socialists actually assert that the Bible doesn’t either. That’s preposterous.

Both the Old Testament and New Testament unequivocally affirm private property. We can’t even obey the eighth commandment to not steal, unless we accept the notion of private ownership. Nor, can we steward our money as the Bible commands if the state owns our money, not us.

4. Socialism Encourages Envy and Class Warfare

Socialists demonize the rich, blaming all of society’s problems on them.

Bernie Sanders once posted to his Facebook Page: “Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders on Wall Street and elsewhere, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America.”

Here, Sanders is mimicking Karl Marx, who viewed history as a series of class struggles between the rich and the poor — and advocated overthrowing the ruling class.

Scripture strongly warns the rich and powerful not to oppress the poor.

In fact, Proverbs 14:31 says, “Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for his maker . . .”

But, Sanders — and other Leftists, including Hillary Clinton — go far beyond decrying specific acts of injustice. They basically condemn an entire class of people simply for possessing wealth. And, they encourage those who are poor to overthrow them. In fact, Clinton once said the U.S. economy required a “toppling” of the wealthiest 1%.

The rich are not causing all the problems in American society. People like Bill Gates are not acquiring wealth by stealing from the masses. They’re creating great products, which produce wealth, and actually provide jobs for many people. But, even if they were exploiting the poor, nowhere does Scripture support the have-nots demanding money from the haves. Instead, it teaches that we should not covet (Exodus 20:17) and should be content in all circumstances (Phil. 4:11-13). 

5. Socialism Seeks to Destroy Marriage & Family

A little known fact about socialism is that, from its beginning, it has sought to destroy marriage and family. Grove City Professor Paul Kengor explains this in detail in his book, Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Marriage and Family. Essentially, what socialism seeks is for the state to replace the family. That way, it can indoctrinate children in its Leftist way of thinking, and remove from them any notions of God and religion.

Friedrich Engels, co-author with Marx of the “The Communist Manifesto,” once wrote that the society he envisioned would be one where “the single family ceases to be the economic unit of society. Private housekeeping is transformed into a social industry. The care and education of the children becomes a public affair.”

Similarly today, Bernie Sanders calls for a “revolution” in childcare and for the government to provide early childhood education beginning with children as young as six-weeks-old. And, he’s a proud supporter of gay marriage — what Kengor calls “communism’s Trojan Horse” to secure the final takedown of traditional marriage.

To socialists, what Bernie describes is a utopia. But, to Christians, it’s a dystopia. That’s because there’s nothing Christian about socialism — and there’s absolutely no way Jesus would ever support it.

America was not founded to be a Socialist Nation.

The following is courtesy of adherents.com:

There were 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence. There were 48 signers of the Articles of Confederation. All 55 delegates who participated in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 are regarded as Founding Fathers, in fact, they are often regarded as the Founding Fathers because it is this group that actually debated, drafted and signed the U.S. Constitution, which is the basis for the country’s political and legal system. Only 39 delegates actually signed the document, however, meaning there were 16 non-signing delegates – individuals who were Constitutional Convention delegates but were not signers of the Constitution.

There were 95 Senators and Representatives in the First Federal Congress. If one combines the total number of signatures on the Declaration, the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution with the non-signing Constitutional Convention delegates, and then adds to that sum the number of congressmen in the First Federal Congress, one obtains a total of 238 “slots” or “positions” in these groups which one can classify as “Founding Fathers” of the United States. Because 40 individuals had multiple roles (they signed multiple documents and/or also served in the First Federal Congress), there are 204 unique individuals in this group of “Founding Fathers.” These are the people who did one or more of the following:

– signed the Declaration of Independence
– signed the Articles of Confederation
– attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787
– signed the Constitution of the United States of America
– served as Senators in the First Federal Congress (1789-1791)
– served as U.S. Representatives in the First Federal Congress

The religious affiliations of these individuals are summarized below. Obviously this is a very restrictive set of names, and does not include everyone who could be considered an “American Founding Father.” But most of the major figures that people generally think of in this context are included using these criteria, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Hancock, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and more.

The Founding Fathers were, I do not doubt, aware of the following passage:

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. – 2 Corinthians 3:17

The Liberals and Atheists who reply to my blogs on Facebook and other Internet Sites insist that Crosses and other Christian symbols have no place in the Public Square.  They wish for Christians to remain unseen and unheard from, worshiping in private, and for Christian Americans to  “compromise” our Faith (i.e., shut up about Homosexual Marriage and other sins,  being used as political expediencies to further an agenda to “radically change” America into something that it was never meant to be.

Well,  y’all can wish for a unicorn to magically appear in your backyard…but that ain’t gonna happen, either.

As a free nation, all you who are non-believers have every right to exercise your faith.

However, as Orthodox Rabbi Daniel Lapin of the Jewish Policy Center clearly explains:

[I] understand that I live . . . in a Christian nation, albeit one where I can follow my faith as long as it doesn’t conflict with the nation’s principles. The same option is open to all Americans and will be available only as long as this nation’s Christian roots are acknowledged and honored.

…Without a vibrant and vital Christianity, America is doomed, and without America, the west is doomed. Which is why I, an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, devoted to Jewish survival, the Torah, and Israel am so terrified of American Christianity caving in. God help Jews if America ever becomes a post-Christian society! Just think of Europe!

Is the Rabbi prophetic? I pray that he isn’t.

I have, however, noticed in the last few years, a propensity among those who have not been raised in a Christian home, to be intolerant toward those who have….staring with the individual who sits at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.

Americans’ Christian Faith, of which approximately 3/4ths of us, according to Gallup, still anchor our lives around, has been the Solid Rock upon which our nation was built. To deny that, is to deny reality, to re-write history, and, to, quite frankly, endanger “the Shining City on a Hill”.

As President Ronald Reagan said,

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under. 

Isn’t it interesting that those among us who claim to be the most tolerant are actually the least tolerant of all?

And, those who claim to be champions of “personal freedom” are enemies of the religious freedom secured for us in the United States Constitution?

Watch the next two and one half months leading up to the Presidential Election in November and see who talks about Freedom and Responsibility and who talks about the right of “citizens”, both legal and illegal, to “free stuff”.

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. – Matthew 7:20

BLM Protestors Not Allowed to Enter Elvis Week Candlelight Vigil. Perhaps They Should Have Tried Working It.

August 16, 2016

th (75)

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.  – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

As a 57-year old resident of the Memphis Area, I have borne witness to the governmental mismanagement and resulting decay and degeneration of what was once of the friendliest places in the country to live.

There are still friendly people in Memphis, but, chances are, they work in Memphis and are living in the suburbs, like I do.

The mass exodus of Memphis taxpayers started during the reign of  “King” Willie Herenton, whom while Mayor from 1991 – 2008, told taxpayers of the Caucasian persuasion, if they did not like the way he was running the city, they could leave.

So, they did.

Since then, violent crime in Memphis has steadily risen, to the point where some suburban husbands will not allow their families to enter Memphis during the day or night.

The most recent Mayor, Jim Strickland, seems to be working hard to revitalize Downtown Memphis.

Unfortunately, for those who are seeking to bring the city of Memphis back to its former prestige, and restore its title of the “City of Good Abode”, there are those who want everyone to share is their own self-inflicted misery…

…and, they want to get paid for it.

The Commercial Appeal, The Memphis Area Newspaper, filed the following story…

While thousands of fans gathered outside the gates of Graceland on a rainy and steamy Monday night, about 100 protesters congregated on Elvis Presley Boulevard during the city’s signature international tourist event, the annual Candelight Vigil in recognition of the death of Elvis Presley.

Affiliated with Black Lives Matter and other social justice movements, the protesters rallied just south of the mansion, isolated from the tourists by a significant police presence, several squad cars and specially erected concrete and metal barricades.

“We’ve already said this is the most police we’ve ever seen around Elvis Week, and we’re glad for it,” said Frances Forbus, 51, of Cartersville, Georgia, who said she was making her tenth trip to Graceland.

“I think everybody has a right to protest and say what they believe is on their mind, but today is about Elvis,” Forbus added. “To use an event that’s already established to call attention to yourself, I think it’s rude.”

Initially, about 20 protesters showed up in the early evening, and were told by police to remain within a fenced area on the south side of the Graceland shops. As the group increased in size, it moved out to the street, waving placards and occasionally chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot” and other slogans.

Police arrested at least two people who attempted to work their way around the barricades, but it was unclear Monday night whether charges would be filed.

Meanwhile, police were permitting people identified as Elvis fans to pass through the barriers.

“One would wonder what information the police officer has to determine who is an Elvis fan and who is the protester. And that’s a question only the officer can answer,” said Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee.

She said that, in general, protesters have a fundamental right to assemble on public land but private property owners can determine who is allowed on their property.

City Council member Berlin Boyd, who spent time talking to the protesters Monday night, said that it was a Graceland official telling Memphis police which people to allow through the barricades and which to keep back.

Antonio Blair, who said he used to work at Graceland, said police wouldn’t let him through the barricade, thinking he was one of the protesters. “It was very racial profiling that they wouldn’t let us in to see Graceland,” he said.

At the same time, a small group of protesters — almost all white — came walking toward the barricades from the opposite direction. One of them, Larry Geater, said the group had no trouble getting past the barricades. “They weren’t stopping the white people. They were just stopping the black people,” he said.

Elvis fans mostly ignored or were puzzled by the protests. International fans in particular said they did not understand the message of the protesters. “Elvis is singing for them,” said Sylvain Vertez of Zwijndrecht, Belgium, making his 25th trip to Graceland, as Elvis’ version of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” played over the Graceland sound system.

Wearing a handmade Elvis dress, Memphian Sybil Presley, 69, (no relation) posed for pictures holding a hand-lettered “Elvis Lives Matter” sign. She said her intention was “to promote peace. We’re trying to have our vigil here. We matter, too.”

Protests aside, Monday’s Candlelight Vigil marked the end of what Graceland public relations director Kevin Kern called “an average Elvis Week, per se.” In comparison, next year’s Elvis Week, which will mark the 40th anniversary of Presley’s death as well as the opening of a new $45 milllion Elvis entertainment complex, should be “massive.”

“I always look at Elvis Week as Memphis’ version of the Olympics,” Kern said. “Except we’ve got to do it every year. We welcome the world to the city.”

Among the world travelers were Jose Gil Ruiz, 46, and Isabel Domenech, 39, newlyweds from Malaga, Spain, who were at Graceland for their honeymoon.

Ruiz wore a sky-high rooster’s comb of a black pompadour, but, more significantly, he and his bride wore matching gold wedding bands inscribed with the bars and notes of the sheet music for “Love Me Tender.”

Neither Ruiz nor Domenech spoke fluent English, but the groom — an Elvis fan since age 5, he said — shared a wedding photo: During the ceremony, he wore a white rhinestone jumpsuit.

Another international visitor was Robert Pooran, 68, an “Elvis tribute artist” from Guyana in South America who now lives in Toronto. He said the protesters didn’t understand that “no matter what your color or background, or if you were in a wheelchair, Elvis was there for you. That’s what he was all about. That’s why he was so loved around the world.”

However, on Facebook last week, the Memphis Coalition of Concerned Citizens — one of the groups that announced it would participate in the Graceland protest — posted that it had “no issue with Elvis nor his fans.”

“Our issue is with the money hoarders in this city who make millions and pay poverty wages to their workers,” the coalition posted. “Memphis is consistently at the top of the list of poorest cities in the United States of America.”

The vigil, marking the 39th anniversary of Elvis’ death on Aug. 16, 1977, started at 8:30 p.m. Following the opening ceremony at the main gate, fans were allowed to walk along the house’s driveway to Elvis’ gravesite. Graceland officials said about 10,000 fans were expected to come through the gates.

“Money hoarders”?

Since the Church of God in Christ took their annual Convocation to St. Louis , Missouri, Elvis Week is the sole money-making annual event that Memphis Leaders can count on to bring solid Hospitality Revenue into the Bluff City.

When a big event like Elvis Week occurs in a city like Memphis, all those who work in the Hospitality Industry, Restaurant Industry, Transportation Industry, and Retail Merchandise Industry make money.

The catch is: you have to work for it.

Just like those of the BLM Protestors who burned down their own neighborhoods in Milwaukee during their two nonsensical nights of rioting over a black career criminal who was shot by a black police officer while resisting arrest, the actions of those trying to protest at and enter the Elvis Week Candlelight Vigil last night continue to make no sense to me, whatsoever.

These “protestors'” sole purpose for existence is disruption for the purpose of gaining attention and the humiliation and degradation of Municipalities, who are trying to recover from decades of poor stewardship by Democratic Party Government Officials. Police Departments.

Their actions spring from their innate belief in the words of Karl Marx in explaining the premise of his Marxist Theory:

From each according to his ability to each according to his need.

The codicil to that statement always has been that someone has to make money with their ability, first, in order to give it to someone “in their need”.

These “Black Lives Matter” “Protestors” are, indeed, the “New Bolsheviks”.

As I have reported in earlier articles, The Open Society Institute, financed by Billionaire Puppet Master and Nazi Collaborator, George Soros, is providing the funds for Black Lives Matter to travel to hot spots around the country.

During the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin rose to power during a time of economic plight in Russia, which was perceived as being the result of a greedy upper class. In order to depose the Czar and his government, Lenin had to solidify the “have-nots”, the Mentsheviks and the Bolsheviks, into his own private army, designed to usher in his “Glorious Revolution”.

He got them on his side by promising them a better, more prosperous life, in which the benevolent “Nanny-State” Government, would supply all of their needs.

By ginning up the dependent base already in cities across the United States of America…and growing…due to the influx of illegals…Black Lives Matter, acting with the passive (at least, publicly) support of the White House and the Democratic Party and all of their Liberal Minions have already infiltrated America’s College Campuses, promising “Free Tuition”, “Empowering Students”,  “Power to the People” and all that jazz, creating their own “Revolutionary Army”.

Now, their actions, including shutting down National Highways and marching through municipalities, in supposed defense of those who were killed in altercations with police across the nation, and “inequality” may succeed in allowing Obama’s quest for a “National Police Force” to become a reality.

“Brown Shirts”, anyone?

Far fetched? Perhaps.

However, Norman Mattoon Thomas (1884-1968) six-time U.S. Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America, infamously said,

The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.

How do we stop this?

The greatest President in my lifetime, Ronald Wilson Reagan, once said,

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. 

Instead of attacking those who do the hiring, the perpetually aggrieved BLM Protestors would be better served by attempting to clean up their own neighborhoods, ridding themselves of the pushers and the prostitutes, trying to make a dent in the 74% illegitimate birth rate in the black community, and stopping their neighbors from killing one another is record numbers.

But…that would require PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

And, evidently, that’s just too difficult a concept for some people to grasp.

Campaign 2016: Clinton and Democrats Attempt to Distance Themselves From Obama’s Failures

July 30, 2016

ap-hillary-obamaAs they used to say down here in the rural parts of Dixie, when two gentlemen” were about to engage in fisticuffs,

Let’s get to scufflin’.

Foxnews.com  reports that

The battle begins — and gaining an edge in the key battleground states appears to be the strategy for both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as each fires an opening shot in the three-month fight to win the White House.

“As of tomorrow, we have 100 days to make our case to America,” Clinton told supporters in Philadelphia on Friday, after claiming the Democratic nomination for president.

Each campaign is hurtling out of the convention stretch drawing a stark contrast with the other, while putting in immediate face time in the swing states that will decide the November election.

On Friday, Clinton launched a bus tour with Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine that will take them across the battleground state of Pennsylvania and next into Ohio, hitting themes like manufacturing, infrastructure and small business support. The tour will take them through Rust Belt hubs like Pittsburgh and Youngstown.

Along the way, the Clinton campaign is loudly accusing Trump and running mate Mike Pence of offering a gloom-and-doom vision, what Clinton on Thursday dubbed “midnight in America.”

But Trump counters that Democrats are offering a “fantasy world” that ignores the real problems. Campaign manager Paul Manafort charged that those problems have only been exacerbated by President Obama and Clinton’s leadership.

“Because she has no message, she has to try and confuse by making these kinds of attacks,” Manafort told Fox News on Friday. “If it’s midnight in America, it’s because of the seven-and-a-half years of the Obama-Clinton administration.”

Each, however, is claiming to be the country’s true change-maker. A new Trump ad says the billionaire businessman offers “change that makes America great again” – while Clinton-Kaine say he’s offering “empty promises.”  

The Clinton-Kaine ticket is taking a hard blue-collar turn as the Democratic nominee tries to reach out to working Americans, including independents and disaffected Republicans, after formally wrapping her contentious primary against Bernie Sanders this week.   

The Clinton campaign plans to kick off next week with an organizing event in Omaha, Neb.

But it is states like Ohio and Pennsylvania – swing states with large swaths of blue-collar voters – that are expected to be top targets.

In Ohio, the RealClearPolitics polling average shows Clinton and Trump virtually tied, with the former secretary of state edging him by less than a percentage point. She leads by an average of 4 percentage points in Pennsylvania, though a recent Quinnipiac poll put Trump slightly ahead.

GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence was hitting Ohio on Friday, while Trump was hitting the Colorado battleground. While Clinton and Kaine are teaming up on the campaign trail after their convention, Trump and Pence are splitting up to cover more ground. Next week, Pence is set to travel to Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, North Carolina and Virginia.

Earlier in the day on Friday, Pence spoke in Indianapolis where he ripped Clinton’s nomination acceptance speech as “more of the same.” He blasted her for “failed policies” of increased regulation and government.
Kaine, for his part, delivered a fast-talking and folksy summation of the voters’ choice as he sees it. Introducing Clinton at their Philadelphia event Friday, he said voters can pick a “trash-talker” or a “bridge-builder.”

“It’s kids first or me first,” he said.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told Fox News that they want to go after independents and disaffected Republicans, claiming Trump is offering the “bleakest possible view” of America.

Manafort countered that Clinton’s push for undecided voters is confusing because she’s offering to be “an Obama third term” while simultaneously vowing to “make a change.”

“She can’t have it both ways,” he said. “There is no way she can establish that she’s the change. She is the establishment.”

As we enter these last few months of the 2016 Presidential Campaign, it appears to this Middle Class American that Hillary Clinton is depending on American Voters to forget the socio-economic suffering that we are presently enduring, under the leadership of the Democratic Party’s present “savior” Barack Hussein Obama, a suffering that, as his Secretary of State for 4 years, she had a major role in creating.

It is as if Hillary and the Democratic Party believe that Americans have very short memories.

Please allow me, right off the top of my head, to summarize what 7 1/2 years of the Failed Democratic Leadership of President Barack Hussein Obama has gotten us, domestically.

Almost 95 million Americans are no longer in our Work Force. While some did, indeed retire willingly, the overwhelming majority lost their jobs, or were displaced in their professions by foreign workers, such as the employees at Disney World, who were forced to train their foreign replacements. These Americans often simply gave up after months of looking for a job in Obama’s stagnant economy.

Obamacare has been a colossal failure.  Passed by Congressional Democrats in the middle of the night, this clandestine catastrophe has proven to be a colossal failure, which began when it’s multi-million dollar taxpayer-funded website proved to be unworkable. To top that, the “great” mandated State “Healthcare Exchanges’ have not worked ether, with more of them closing up shop everyday, including the one located in Obama’s Home State of Illinois.

Unfortunately for Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and all of her fellow Democrats, including their Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, Americans now know exactly “what was in it”.

Our major cities have gone downhill under Democratic Leadership. America’s Democratic-Run major cities have continued to deteriorate, along with race relations in America. Simply put, poor stewardship leads to poor municipal economic growth, which leads to a lack of jobs for a city’s inhabitants, which leads broken families which leads to violence which leads to taxpayers leaving the city.

Obama’s Alternative Energy Push has cost Americans millions of dollars. The list of Obama’s determination to fund “alternative energy solutions” has cost the American Taxpayers millions of dollars, while he refuses to allow one of the world’s largest shale oil deposits, right here in America, to be developed.

Our military has been compromised and marginalized under Obama. Through budget cuts and social experimentation, Obama has compromised the greatest military force on the face of the Earth, leaving our country more vulnerable to our enemies.

Our Education System has been politicized and compromised. Obama and the Democrats’ penchant for social experimentation has become a priority in America’s Schools. Education achieved through hard work and student discipline has been replaced by “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “In-School Suspensions”.

Now, this list of failures could be expounded upon ad infinitum, as I am certain that the informed among you are subconsciously doing as you read this.

For Hillary and the Democrats to expect the American Voter to ignore reality and to place our trust in her, given her track record of involvement and support for the failed leadership of President Barack Hussein Obama, is incredulous, to say the least.

There are definitive reasons that Hillary Clinton’s popularity is presently tanking in the national polls.

Her and her fellow Democrats’ attempt to force Americans to ignore reality is certainly right there at the top of the list.

KJ’s Preview of DNC 2016: Let the Games Begin!

July 25, 2016

thDSJXAMG9

As we enter the first day of the National Democratic Convention, I hope you have your popcorn ready.

This promises to be the biggest exercise in hypocrisy since Michelle Obama’s National Diet Plan.

Thehill.com reports that

The Democratic National Convention is off to a rocky start – and it hasn’t even officially begun.Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s resignation the day before the convention opens is the big news Monday morning.

It follows the release of embarrassing emails between DNC officials that appear to confirm the suspicions of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s supporters that Wasserman Schultz and the DNC tipped the scales during the party’s primary in favor of Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee.

The resignation overtook Clinton campaign’s planned rollout of running mate Tim Kaine, crowding out a highly anticipated joint interview with “60 Minutes” on Sunday night, and will again raise questions about how unified the Democratic Party can be in November.

The good news for Clinton is that Wasserman Schultz resigned. By the end of the week, the Clinton campaign can only hope that the news about the embattled chairwoman has faded.

One Clinton ally said Wasserman Schultz meant well, but, “she turned out to be the ultimate pain in the ass.”

“Every single time the campaign started to gain their footing, she would do something else to set us back,” the Clinton ally told The Hill on Sunday. “And it wasn’t helpful. It became an annoyance.

“Her mere presence would have been a thorn in the side,” the ally continued. “So this is helpful for all sides.”

Frustration over Wasserman Schultz and the DNC boiled over earlier this summer, when there were rumblings that she could be dumped before the convention in the name of party unity.

Sanders supporters have been angry with Wasserman Schultz and the DNC for some time, and believe she has repeatedly undermined or slighted their candidate.

Wasserman Schultz pushed back against the murmuring that she should be replaced, and it appeared she would survive until Friday, when Wikileaks released its emails – including one in which DNC staffers seemed to discuss using questions about Sanders’s faith against him.

Sanders welcomed Wasserman Schultz’s resignation on Sunday, which came after he again called for her to quit on the Sunday morning news shows.

He called her resignation “the right decision for the future of the Democratic Party.”

Nina Turner, a top spokeswoman for the campaign, separately cheered the selection of longtime Democratic strategist and DNC vice chairwoman Donna Brazile as interim chairwoman.

Brazile was widely praised by Sanders supporters as a fair and steadying presence during the primaries.

“We believe in you,” Turner tweeted. “Thanks for being fair and transparent!”

All eyes will be on Sanders on Monday night, when he is scheduled to speak to delegates.

And eyes will also be on Wasserman Schultz, who has said she will not quit until after the convention. The Florida lawmaker also plans to open and close the convention, and says she will speak to delegates at some point this week.

That risks a divisive and embarrassing scene like the one that unfolded at the Republican National Convention last week when Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) was booed off stage.

“It’s shocking to me that she would still be speaking,” said Democracy For America spokesman Neil Sroka, who supported Sanders during the primaries. “That’s not helpful for unity. When you resign, you resign.”

Sanders supporters also say Wasserman Schultz’s resignation should be only a starting point.

They say the Wikileaks scandal revealed deeply ingrained institutional problems within the national party that won’t be resolved overnight.

“My concern is that those leaks fundamentally undermine the integrity of the party,” said Jacob Limon, the Texas state director for Bernie Sanders’s campaign.

“If you’re a Democratic candidate and you want to run for office you’re assuming you’ll get a fair deal and that Democrats will facilitate even-handed elections,” he said. “If her resignation will start healing the Democratic Party, I’m all for it, but we still have to restore the integrity of the party.”

The hashtag #DNCleak was being used Sunday night be Sanders supporters to call for more changes at the DNC, including the removal of staffers.

The Clinton and Sanders campaigns have been working for months to come to terms on an alliance that would cement Sanders’ legacy in the Democratic Party and encourage his fervent base of grassroots liberals and young voters to throw their support behind Clinton.

Before the email leak, there were signs of progress. Now the question is whether the latest episode will tear that band-aid off.

Sroka called Wassersman Schultz’s resignation the “first step in a long process.”

“This was the only acceptable response to those revelations,” he said. “It was helpful to demonstrate that the party understands the importance of bringing in 13 million folks who supported Bernie Sanders into the Democratic Party and will help bring the party closer to unity and to enthusiasm and the fight ahead.”

One Democratic strategist predicted that Wasserman Schultz’s resignation would help the party unify.

“There will still be a little bit of messiness,” the strategist said. “But she might have been the greatest contribution to party unity in the end.”

Bernie Sanders supporters have experienced and are experiencing what we older Americans used to refer to in the 1970s as a “reality check”.

As the DNC leaked e-mails showed, the Establishment Democrats were never going to allowed the Socialist Senator from the tiny New England State of Vermont any sort of opportunity to be their Presidential Candidate.

As the overwhelming majority of us said and thought from the beginning of the Democrat Primary Campaign, the fix was in for the wife of Monica Lewinsky’s boyfriend to be the 2016 Democratic Party Presidential Candidate.

For this tarnished political party, which threw morality, ethics, and the God of Abraham Himself out the window decades ago, it  was”easy peasy” to give Hillary the gold mine and ol’ Bernie the shaft.

Now, that their hypocritical political corruption has once again been revealed, they are scrambling to minimize the damage before they begin today’s week-long dog and pony show.

Actually, though, when I think about it, this convention will resemble a police line-up, more than a dog and pony show.

At least dogs and ponies possess a certain nobility.

In the case of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, nobility, along with the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost, took the last train for the coast, as Don McLean sang in hit classic hit song, “American Pie”.

This year’s Democratic Convention will feature a pantheon of “picked-upon”, “abused, “marginalized” individuals…and that’s just the professional politicians.

According to the New York Daily News,

The mothers of African-Americans killed by police or in gun violence, including Eric Garner’s mom, will be among the headlining speakers at the Democratic National Convention.

On Tuesday night, following a keynote speech by former President Bill Clinton, seven members of “Mothers of the Movement,” a sisterhood of moms who share the singular tragedy of having lost their sons to cops or guns, will address the Philadelphia summit.

Scheduled to speak are Gwen Carr, the mother of Garner, who was killed in an illegal police chokehold on Staten Island; Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager shot dead by a self-appointed neighborhood watchman; Geneva Reed-Veal, the mother of Sandra Bland, who found hanged in a Texas jail cell after she was arrested during a traffic stop; and Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, whose shooting death at the hands of Ferguson, Mo., police in 2014 set off riots across the nation.

Pardon me if this is a crude question to ask…but, isn’t the purpose of a Political Party’s National Convention to convince the overwhelming majority of American’s that your Presidential Candidate will keep this country safe and prosperous?

How does featuring the mother of an out-of-control thug who was killed while attacking a police officer whom he had shoved into his car and was charging at to finish the job, show that Hillary Clinton possesses the sound judgment and principled character befitting the Office of President of the United States of America?

#BlueLivesMatter, too.

So, if you are in the Philadelphia Area, try to get in to see this debacle of a Political Convention…if you can.

Good Luck succeeding in that, though. You would have to breach the “Security Wall” that encompasses the area around the Wells Fargo Center and “Xfinity Live!.

While the Democratic Party does not want a Security Wall at America’s Southern Border to keep those who would break our laws and enter illegally for the possible purpose of disruption and destruction, these wealthy Liberal Professional Politicians who run the Democratic Party have no qualms about protecting themselves with an impenetrable  wall of their own.

Hypocrisy abounds. Irony is embarrassed.

As I have always said,

Isn’t it funny how those among us who claim to be the most tolerant, are actually the least tolerant of all?

“Sit-In For Gun Control”: House Democrats Throw a Temper Tantrum

June 23, 2016

13516569_10209863721412925_3388329507464984337_n

“There are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution. But in doing so, in their willingness to give up their arms in the name of safety, they are really giving up their protection from what has always been the chief source of despotism — government.” – Ronald Wilson Reagan

The New York Times reports that

A Democratic protest demanding votes on gun-control legislation led to pandemonium in the House chamber that did not end until early Thursday, when Speaker Paul D. Ryan and his fellow Republicans reclaimed control long enough to force through a major spending bill. They then abruptly adjourned and left the Capitol.

Furious Democrats remained on the House floor, where they huddled around their leader, Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, who praised their stand as a “discussion heard around the world.”

Ms. Pelosi expressed bewilderment at the Republican position. “What could they be thinking?” she asked. “Whatever it is, they don’t want to tell anybody about it. That’s why they left in the dead of night.”

The standoff, which began with a Democratic sit-in on the House floor just before noon on Wednesday, did not end until about 3 a.m. Thursday when Mr. Ryan — barreling over Democrats’ objections — took the rare and provocative step of calling a vote on a major appropriations bill in the wee hours and without any debate. He then adjourned the House, with no legislative votes scheduled until July 5.

The House approved the bill, which includes $1.1 billion in emergency financing to fight the mosquito-borne Zika virus — and more than $80 billion in other government spending — by a vote of 239 to 171 shortly after 3 a.m.

Republicans dashed from the chamber into the sticky heat gripping Washington and were met by protesters who jeered, with some shouting, “Do your job!”

Earlier, as Democrats fought for control of the floor, they pressed against the speaker’s dais, waving signs with the names of gun victims and chanting “No bill! No break!” as Mr. Ryan repeatedly banged his gavel in an attempt to restore order.

When Mr. Ryan left the speaker’s chair, Democrats shouted: “Shame! Shame! Shame!”

There were scenes of chaos across the floor as Republicans tried to resume regular business. At one point, Democrats began singing “We Shall Overcome” — altering the lyrics to say “We shall pass a bill some day” — as Republicans shouted in outrage.

And when Representative Don Young, Republican of Alaska, tried to confront the chanting Democrats, he was restrained by aides and colleagues.

The unusual events were set off with the sit-in before noon when Democrats insisted on taking votes on gun measures before Congress began its weeklong recess for the Fourth of July.

“We will not leave the floor of this House until this Congress takes action!” Representative Kathy D. Castor, Democrat of Florida, declared.

Democrats — who do not have enough strength in either the House or Senate to pass legislation on their own — have resorted to spectacle to highlight their anger over Congress not taking action to tighten the nation’s gun-control law.

Why are the House Democrats doing this?

Are they having some sort of LSD flashback to their Collegiate days, during which they barricaded the college Dean’s office and smoked dope?

Perhaps, they believe that if they sit long enough John Lennon and George Harrison will rise from their graves and the Beatles will show up and lead them in a rousing chorus of “All We Are Saying is Give Peace a Chance.”

More than likely, they believe that the spineless Republican Elite will cave in to their demands simply because they are throwing an adult temper tantrum.

As I have been reading on Facebook Political Pages, these Congressional Democrats , including their presumptive presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and those who have donned brown shirts and who are in lockstep with them, erroneously believe that Americans want their 2nd Amendment rights taken away from them or somehow modified, as a feel-good measure that will do nothing to prevent Radical Islamists from slaughtering us.

The Americans whom I see carrying their pistols strapped to their hip in Walmart down here in Mississippi, where Open Carry is legal, would fervently disagree with them.

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution does not just apply to the Bodyguards of Modern American Liberals.

If some of those Americans in Orlando at that night club in which Omar Mateen murdered 49 of them and wounded 53 others, had been carrying, his planned slaughter would have been stopped very quickly.

Perhaps, even before it began.

This unseemly adult temper tantrum that the house Democrats are throwing is not one of sympathy for the American people. They could care less what we think.

These are the same people that smile like Chessshire Cats when they think about the yanking of over a million American babies a year out of their mothers wombs.

No, boys and girls, this is all about illusion and control.

Democrats know that Donald J. Trump is about to win the presidency in November in a political landslide.

This demonstration is an illusion created to attempt to convince the American people that the majority of us are for restricting our 2nd Amendment rights for the express purpose of eventually taking away our guns and our means to defend ourselves from enemies foreign and domestic.

Unfortunately, for these overage immature hippies in the House of Representatives, they are fooling no one.

The overwhelming majority Americans have no wish to be defenseless.

Those of us who have learned from history remember the words of Marxist Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin:

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

We, like our Founding Fathers, have no wish to be “controlled”.

The New Bolsheviks: Were the Protesters Who Shut Down Trump’s Chicago Campaign Rally Paid?

March 12, 2016

th (61)“Mr. Trump and the Republican leaders who support him and his hate-filled rhetoric should be on notice after tonight’s events. These protests are a direct result of the violence that has occurred at Trump rallies and that has been encouraged by Trump himself from the stage. Our country is better than the shameful, dangerous, and bigoted rhetoric that has been the hallmark of the Trump campaign. To all of those who took to the streets of Chicago, we say thank you for standing up and saying enough is enough. To Donald Trump, and the GOP, we say, welcome to the general election. Trump and those who peddle hate and incite violence have no place in our politics and most certainly do not belong in the White House.” – Ilya Sheyman, executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, responding to news of the postponement of Donald Trump’s rally in Chicago on Friday –  courtesy moveon.org

The year is 1903.

The Russian Social Democratic Party is meeting in London. All the intellectuals in their party have been arguing since the end of the 1800′s as to the direction the party should take. One year earlier, in 1902, a man named Lenin, living in exile, wrote a paper entitled, “What Is To Be Done”.

Lenin’s paper was smuggled into Russia. It detailed his views regarding what the Social Democrats should be doing as a party. In the paper, Lenin attacked party members who “were content to wait while history took its predetermined course.” Lenin was tired of waiting for governmental change to occur. He decided to get things done rather than wait on intellectuals sitting around refuting each other’s ideas.

The before-mentioned meeting resulted in a Party split creating the Mentsheviks and the Bolsheviks. The two factions would reunite under Lenin in April 1905.

Lenin, of course, went on to organize the November 1917 Russian Revolution on the Promise of “peace. bread, and land”.

On the night of Nov. 6 (Oct. 24, O.S.), the Bolsheviks staged an coup, engineered by Trotsky. Partnering with the workers’ Red Guard and the sailors of Kronstadt, they captured the government buildings and the Winter Palace in Petrograd. A second all-Russian congress of soviets met and approved the coup after the Mensheviks and Socialist Revolutionaries walked out of the meeting. A cabinet, known as the Council of People’s Commissars, was set up with Lenin as chairman, Trotsky as foreign commissar, Rykov as interior commissar, and Stalin as commissar of nationalities. The second congress immediately called for cessation of hostilities, gave private and church lands to village soviets, and abolished private property.

The year is 2016.

Leading Republican Presidential Primary Candidate, Donald J. Trump attempted to hold a Campaign Rally in Chicago, Illinois.

America’s “New Bolsheviks” decided that Trump’s Rally must not be allowed to happen.

Here is a short synopsis of the planned attack, courtesy of The Daily Mail

  • More than an hour before Trump’s appointed 6:00 p.m. starting time, scuffles broke out inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion

  • ‘It’s like 10 per cent of them are here to shut it down,’ a Chicago police officer told DailyMail.com

  • News of the shut down came hours after black activist Anthony Cage, was bloodied after clashing with Trump supporters in St. Louis 

  • Chicago police confirmed at least six arrests in Chicago

  • Multiple law enforcement sources confirmed that an organized mob attended Trump’s rally with the intention of storming the stage 

  • Two police officers were injured and 5 people were arrested

Protesters at Donald Trump’s first Chicago campaign rally were so numerous on Friday that they shut the event down following loud demonstrations and a series of physical brawls.

Fistfights broke out inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion between an anti-Trump mob and Chicagoans who came to hear the Republican front-runner speak.

Outside, an impatient group of thousands more massed. Temperatures rose.

Multiple law enforcement sources told DailyMail.com that there was a credible threat against Trump from groups of protesters who planned to storm the stage.

They intended to swarm to the front of the crowd at an agreed-upon signal, a Secret Service agent said his agency believed, converging on Trump’s podium from different directions all at once.

Trump himself ultimately called it off. 

…Trump defended his decision to cancel his rally Friday, saying he didn’t want to see “people get hurt” after protesters packed into the arena where it was scheduled to take place. Rally-goers and protesters squared off in isolated confrontations creating a chaotic environment.

Speaking later with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, Trump said he had arrived in Chicago two hours earlier and about 25,000 people were trying to enter the area.

After meeting with law enforcement authorities, he said, “I didn’t want to see people get hurt (so) I decided to postpone the rally…

“What we did was intelligent,” Trump said. “A very good decision…a wise decision.”

He also told Van Susteren, “if we had the rally, I think it would not have been a good situation.” But, he added, “Our First Amendment rights have been violated.”

Trump returned to the First Amendment issue in a later conversation with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “I have the right to speak and they (his supporters) have a right to listen,” he said.

He also added that he was “getting a lot of credit for canceling…we did the right thing.”

Earlier yesterday, a black protester was roughed up, while trying to disrupt a Trump Campaign Rally in St. Louis.

Was the near-riot in Chicago a coincidence?

Are you kiddin’ me?

In a subsequent interview with Fox News, Republican Primary Candidate Marco Rubio actually got around, after attempting to blame Trump for the attack, that some of the protesters were “probably paid”.

Gee, DiNozzo. Ya think?

An article published by the Washington Times, on January 14, 2015, titled “George Soros funds Ferguson protests, hopes to spur civil action”, reporter Kelly Riddell went into detail about “The Puppetmaster” George Soros’ funding of the violent protests after the death of the thug, Michael Brown, and his subsequent funding of the Black Lives Matter Organization.

…In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.

The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.

“Our DNA includes a belief that having people participate in government is indispensable to living in a more just, inclusive, democratic society,” said Kenneth Zimmerman, director of Mr. Soros‘ Open Society Foundations’ U.S. programs, in an interview with The Washington Times. “Helping groups combine policy, research [and] data collection with community organizing feels very much the way our society becomes more accountable.”

…With the backing of national civil rights organizations and Mr. Soros‘ funding, “Black Lives Matter” grew from a hashtag into a social media phenomenon, including a #BlackLivesMatter bus tour and march in September.

“More than 500 of us have traveled from Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Nashville, Portland, Tucson, Washington, D.C., Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and other cities to support the people of Ferguson and help turn a local moment into a national movement,” wrote Akiba Solomon, a journalist at Colorlines, describing the event.

Colorlines is an online news site that focuses on race issues and is published by Race Forward, a group that received $200,000 from Mr. Soros’s foundation in 2011. Colorlines has published tirelessly on the activities in Ferguson and heavily promoted the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag and activities.

At the end of the #BlackLivesMatter march, organizers met with civil rights groups like the Organization for Black Struggle and Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment to strategize their operations moving forward, Ms. Solomon wrote. OBS and MORE are also funded by Mr. Soros.

Mr. Soros gave $5.4 million to Ferguson and Staten Island grass-roots efforts last year to help “further police reform, accountability and public transparency,” the Open Society Foundations said in a blog post in December. About half of those funds were earmarked to Ferguson, with the money primarily going to OBS and MORE, the foundation said.

To complete “the ties that bind”, moveon.org, who, evidently had a hand in the organization of the “Chicago Protest” is a Soros-funded Organization and Website.

What is behind all of this “civil unrest”?

When you have an orderly structure already in place, such as our System of Checks and Balances, which was set up to provide a mechanism which protects our sovereign nation from usurpation of our Constitution, and provided for us in the founding of this country by our forefathers, it is not easily circumvented.

That salient fact hit me right between the eyes, after I wrote a blog about Obama’ s meeting with the protest leaders who were chomping at the bit to riot in Ferguson Missouri over the shooting of the young thug, Michael Brown.

When Obama was running for president, he promised to “radically change” the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave into a vision which he had for America. I believe that the racial upheaval in Ferguson and across the country, which Obama’s irresponsible use of the rhetoric of race and class warfare championed by Obama throughout his Presidency, has directly caused, as well, is a political tool, which he and his “Fellow Travelers” such as Bomber Bill Ayers, who was at the Chicago Protest last night, use as a means to incite their “New Bolsheviks” in being a Vanguard for their own revolution, whose sole purpose is to usher in the “radical change” which Obama spoke of all those years ago.

Just as was the case in the Russian Revolution, any “Democratic Socialist” nation we see around our Modern World, went through a course-altering revolution, whether through a violent overthrow of the Government or through a “radical change” in the political ideology of their nation and the way that their populace voted in the subsequent election.

I firmly believe that the mission of Barack Hussein Obama, from the moment he became President of United States to this very day, has been exactly what he said it was during his first presidential campaign: to “radically change” our nation into something that every patriotic American will no longer recognize.

With citizenship and voting rights granted to illegal aliens and with Obama and his “Fellow Travelers'” covert and overt support of these perpetually-grieved protesters, fueled by racial animus, the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama is bearing witness to the creation of a new version of Lenin’s Bolsheviks.

And, it has become very apparent, that these “New Bolsheviks”, are attempting to “radically change” “the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

…Including the suppression of Freedom of Speech.

Is the “Hair” Leaving the “Tortoise” at the Starting Gate?

August 22, 2015

th2ERKPEW7Growing up, we all heard the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare.

The Tortoise, slow and steady, beats the bold and brash Hare in a foot race.

There have been those supporters of the candidacy of Jeb Bush, who have compared his rather uninspiring campaign versus the rocket fueled-campaign of Donald J. Trump, as a real-life recreation of that classic fable.

Of course, those making the comparison are mostly Liberals and RINOs (but, I repeat myself).

According to Frank Bruni of The New York Times,

Before Bush announced his candidacy, talk of his vulnerabilities focused largely on certain positions — his defense of Common Core educational standards, his advocacy for immigration reform — that were anathema to many voters in the Republican primaries. He was sure to catch flak.

But catching fire is his bigger problem. He can’t do it. In a bloated field of bellicose candidates, he’s a whisper, a blur, starved of momentum, bereft of urgency and apt to make news because he stumbles, not because he soars. Can he soar? Or even sprint?

“I’m the tortoise in the race,” he told a group of voters in Florida not long ago. “But I’m a joyful tortoise.”

I wonder how joyful “The Tortoise is, after what “The Hair” pulled off last night?

Mobile, Alabama (CNN) – Donald Trump addressed thousands of supporters at a pep rally in Mobile, Alabama, on Friday night, the latest show of strength for the Republican 2016 front-runner’s campaign.
“We’ve gotten an amazing reception,” Trump said as he began his remarks, turning his back to the podium at the Ladd-Peebles Stadium and pointing to the crowd behind him. “Has this been crazy? Man!”

Clad in a Navy blue jacket and a white shirt, his recognizable “Make America Great Again” red baseball cap adorning his head, Trump quickly launched into the themes that have marked his candidacy thus far, seizing upon an economy he said was stalling and immigration laws that he said need revamping.

“We have a stock market not doing so well, we have a country not doing so well, we’ve been saying it for a long time,” Trump said. “We have politicians who don’t have a clue. They’re all talk, no action. What’s happening to this country is disgraceful.”

The event was previously planned to be held at the nearby Civic Center but was moved to the 43,000-seat Ladd-Peebles Stadium — a venue normally home to high school football games — to accommodate the crowd. It was not immediately clear how many people attended the rally; the 5,000-seat bleachers behind Trump were filled to capacity, but the east and west bleachers flanking the field — which each hold up to 15,000 people — were about half-full when Trump began speaking around 7:30 p.m. CT.

A message left with Mobile police regarding the crowd size was not immediately returned.

Republican Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and Trump’s son Eric were notable attendees. The senator briefly addressed the crowd at Trump’s invitation, saying the magnate was popular because he stands up for Americans’ interests and has promised to defend immigration laws.

“The American people … want somebody in the presidency to stand up for them,” Sessions said, after briefly donning a white baseball cap emblazoned with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

Trump flew by the stadium in his private jet shortly before 6 p.m., doing a loop around the arena before landing. The fly-by was announced over the stadium’s loudspeaker to cheers.

Attendees gathered as early as 6 a.m., and some traveled from as far away as Florida and California to attend.

The first 10 people in line were strangers this morning, but after waiting outside in the 90-degree heat, they befriended one another and all chipped in to buy a canopy from Walmart and a few pizzas from Dominos.

Amanda Mancini, who said she is part of a new movement called “Women for Trump,” flew in from Los Angeles. “I wanted to be part of it. I initially thought it was going to be small, and I thought Trump wouldn’t be coming to me in California, so I would have to come to him.”

Brent Fritz and Jacob Murray, 19-year-old students from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, drove in Friday morning to see Trump. They left at 4 a.m. ET and arrived around noon local time.

The first person to get in line was retired Marine Keith Quackenbush.

“This isn’t about Republicans, it isn’t about Democrats, this is a movement of citizens across America tired of the BS,” he said.

CNN added the following about the “Tortoise”…

Jeb Bush and his allies once again aggressively looked to deliver a different message to Trump’s voters, reflecting a new muscular stance against the Republican front-runner first unveiled this week in New Hampshire. Bush’s super PAC, Right to Rise, arranged its own flyover at the stadium as a jet carried a banner reading: “Trump 4 higher taxes, Jeb 4 prez.”

Bush’s official campaign said it also emailed supporters in Alabama pointing out Trump’s previous liberal positions on abortion, gun rights and tax issues.

“Trump’s positions are deeply out-of-step with the Alabama way of life,” the email reads, according to the campaign. “Trump’s history of supporting Democratic ideas will not go unnoticed in Alabama and we trust you will make it known.”

Bush and Trump have sparred since the “Apprentice” star launched his campaign in June. Most recently, they have fought over the formerFlorida governor’s use of the term “anchor baby,” which many see as derogatory toward Latinos.

I have noticed (and, maybe, it’s just my perception) that Jeb simply does not have the self-depreciating, common man personality of his brother, George W.

He simply has not struck the same chord with the average American that Trump has, as exhibited by the size of the crowd who attended Trumps Stadium Rally in Mobile, Alabama, last night.

“Slow and steady” seems to have been the Establishment Republicans’ mantra for the last two Presidential Elections, rolling out Moderate Candidates, who failed to connect with the Conservative Base.

They seemed determined to stick with the same losing political strategy for the 2016 Presidential Election, as well, proclaiming Jeb! to be their “Bell Cow”, to anyone who would listen, and enlisting the Main Stream Media, and even Fox News to sound the charge.

However, something funny happened on the way to the “Coronation of the Heir Apparent to the Throne”.

Unfortunately for the entire Political Establishment, Average Americans are not genuflecting to the “Young Prince”. Instead, we are paying attention to the “commoner” because as opposed to the lofty language and specious platitudes of professional politicians, he is offering plain talk, while busting the piñata of Political Correctness.

Whether either one of these guys will actually finish the Race for the Presidency is uncertain, because we have a long way to go until November of 2016.

However, the way this race is progressing, “The Hair” is indeed beating “The Tortoise”.

The People are speaking. Is the Establishment listening?

Until He Comes,

Planned Parenthood, Sponsored Politicians, and the Lion of Judah

August 2, 2015

Womb-Disguise-600-LIEven as more information becomes available that Professional Politicians, on both sides of the aisle, have accepted huge donations from Government-Funded Planned Parenthood, the Main Stream Media and these same Politicians feverishly attempt to come up with new things that they can say about the untimely passing of Cecil the Lion.

Unfortunately for them, the fact that Americans are disgusted and horrified that Planned Parenthood has been selling aborted babies’ body parts, will not go away.

ChristianPost.com reports that

David Daleiden, head of the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, alleges that StemExpress — a biotechnology company that sells aborted baby organs for tens of thousands of dollars — is trying to use the courts to block the release of future undercover videos because they might reveal “evidence of born alive infants.”

“In a meeting with their top leadership they [StemExpress] admitted they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants,” Daleiden asserted on CNN Friday.

California-based StemExpress is “very scared,” he said, about seeing the next undercover videos released to the public because they might reveal illegal partial-birth abortions are being carried out to obtain intact tissue and organs for research.

In 2003, then President George W. Bush signed a law banning partial-birth abortion which was subsequently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Some late-term abortionists have been using a chemical called digoxin to stop babies’ hearts to deliver intact deceased babies.

Earlier this week, StemExpress was successful in receiving a temporary restraining order against the Center of Medical Progress, thus barring the release of undercover footage showing top level staff in a May 2014 meeting.

Daleiden told CNN Friday that Planned Parenthood has not responded or disputed facts revealed in the first video that their abortionists are altering procedures to gain more intact “specimens” by moving babies to the breech-birth position.

While Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and other top level staff have consistently stated their abortion business hasn’t broken any state or federal laws and they do not profit from the harvesting of babies’ tissue and organs, a former Planned Parenthood director has said these claims are false.

During an interview with The Christian Post, Abby Johnson, who worked as a Planned Parenthood clinic director in Texas for eight years, said the nation’s top abortion provider is making a profit of $100 to $200 off each baby’s recoverable tissue and organs they sell.

“Shipping only costs a clinic $4 to $10 but they are sometimes charging $100 to $200 for each baby,” Johnson told CP. “They are charging additional fees, but in reality there are no additional fees except for minimal shipping costs.”

“There is definitely money to be made and that’s an issue with the current law. If there’s a loophole, Planned Parenthood will blow through it,” she asserted.

The Hill reported on Friday that the National Abortion Federation is asking California’s courts to block all of the unreleased footage, not just the video clips showing StemExpress employees.

House lawmakers left Washington, D.C. for summer recess without voting on a bill to stop giving Planned Parenthood the over $500 million it receives in taxpayer funding every year. The Senate is expected to vote on on a similar measure, but will fail if it can’t obtain the minimum 60 votes required.

President Obama has said he will veto any bill passed by lawmakers to defund Planned Parenthood.

History has shown us that, no matter how hard a politician tries to hide the nature of their heart and soul, eventually, they will say something to reveal it.

In a speech, given in April, at a Women’s Summit, Democratic Presidential Hopeful, Hillary Rodham Clinton, did just that.

Breitbart.com reported that

“Far too many women are denied access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Hillary Clinton said at the Women in the World Summit on Thursday night. “Rights have to exist in practice, not just on paper.  Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”

Clinton made it emphatically clear she’s not just talking about, say, the horrific abuse of women by Islamist extremists: “As I have said, and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century, and not just for women but for everyone… and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States.” She pointed at the very ground she was standing upon, to emphasize the point.

As an aside, that has to be one of the strangest, clunkiest rhetorical devices I’ve ever heard: “As I have said, and as I believe…” Granted, with politicians in general and Clintons in particular, a disclaimer that what they’re saying really is what they believe is often necessary, but there’s no particular reason to believe such a disclaimer when Hillary Clinton delivers it.  If she really believed everything she was saying at this Women in the World Summit, why was she happy to rake in millions of dollars from countries that treat women horribly?

Quibbles about odd rhetorical devices aside, this vow to use government force to rewrite religious belief and make it more contraception- and abortion-friendly is deeply offensive, and par for the course with true believers in the Church of the State, as both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are. Clinton has been at it much longer. Back in the Nineties, she was high on the notion of the collectivist State as a spiritual vehicle – the “politics of meaning,” as the catch phrase went.

The difference is that Obama will occasionally use Christian symbolism and Scripture to advance his political agenda, as when he insists that charity can only be properly administered by the State, and Christians are therefore obliged to support high taxes, massive government spending, and regulatory power. Obama is also big on using Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” against Christians, as when he tried to shame them out of criticizing his foreign policy by pontificating about the Crusades.

Clinton, on the other hand, more explicitly views politics as absorbing religion, as in this example. Her Church of the State has made certain decrees concerning mandatory payment for other peoples’ contraceptives and unrestricted abortion; any organized religion that resists must be forcibly re-written to accept these judgments.

Unlike Obama, Hillary isn’t much interested in pretending to be a devout Christian. In this speech, she’s creating a continuum between Taliban savages murdering girls for daring to go to school, and American Christians who don’t want to pay for other peoples’ abortifacient drugs.  Genital mutilation, opposition to late-term abortion… it’s all the same to her. Religions must be reprogrammed until they’re fully compatible with the latest version of radical-feminist code.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a Far Left Radical Follower of Saul Alinsky, like Hillary Rodham Clinton, should feel this way.

Hillary, like Obama, sincerely believes that she is the smartest person in any room that she happens to walk into.

There is no room in her ego-filled heart and mind, for a Supreme Being. Hillary, herself, believes that she is the sole arbiter of Right and Wrong in her life.

Have you ever tried to have a discussion with an ardent  pro-abortion supporter, either on Facebook or face-to-face? You won’t hear these “Champions of Tolerance” call those innocent lives, babies, human beings, a life, a soul, a gift from God, or anything remotely resembling something that they should feel remorse about killing.

Heck, Pro-Abortionists are opposed to the taking of sonograms of the woman’s womb, before she has a abortion. They’re afraid that the “seed-carrier” will realize that IS a HUMAN BEING inside her, and will decide not to kill that baby.

Here are some thoughts from The Book provided by The Author of Life…the Lion of Judah:

Did not He who made me in the womb make him, And the same one fashion us in the womb? (Job 31:15)

Yet Thou art He who didst bring me forth from the womb; Thou didst make me trust when upon my mother’s breasts. Upon Thee I was cast from birth; Thou hast been my God from my mother’s womb. (Psalm 22:9-10)

For Thou didst form my inward parts; Thou didst weave me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to Thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Thy works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from Thee, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth. Thine eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Thy book they were all written, The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)

Thus says the LORD who made you And formed you from the womb, who will help you, `Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen. (Isaiah 44:2)

Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself, And spreading out the earth all alone, (Isaiah 44:24)

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

Why,  even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not;  you are of more value than many sparrows.”(Luke 12:7 )

From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” writes:

As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?

There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.

In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.

From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.

As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.

I know that there are some of you that read my blog that are non-believers.  For you and for my Christian brothers and sisters, I offer the following closing thoughts:

There is a curious unique enzyme found in the human body.   Laminin is defined by the Webster Medical Dictionary as a “glycoprotein that is a component of connective tissue basement membrane and that promotes cell adhesion.”  In other words, a glue within the body.

Colossians 1:15-17 tells us:

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

I believe that our nation and our leaders should realize that you cannot mock God. With actions come consequences. You know, that “cause and effect” thingy that “the Smartest people in the Room” are so found of bringing up.

Each and every life is precious to The Creator. That baby growing in her womb, is not the property of the mother. Each and every one of us belong to the One who made us. He is our Sovereign Lord.

All those who believe that “it is a woman’s right to choose”…think too highly of themselves.

For every life is a Gift from The Creator to be loved and cherished, as He first loved us.

Until He Comes,

E-mailGate: Hillary, Huma, and the Muslim Brotherhood

August 1, 2015

Editor-n-ChiefThe continuing discovery of the depth of corruption which occurred during Democrat Presidential Hopeful, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s, tenure as Barack Hussein Obama’s Secretary of State, is making the Mariana Trench look like a creek.

Fox News Reports that

One of Hillary Clinton’s top aides was reportedly overpaid by nearly $10,000 because of violations of rules that govern vacation and sick time during her time as an official in the State Department, according to investigators.

The Washington Post reports the finding emerged on Friday after Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley sent letters to Secretary of State John Kerry, among others, about an investigation into possible “criminal” conduct by Huma Abedin over her pay.

The letters also sought the status of an investigation into whether Abedin violated conflict-of-interest laws related to her work for the State Department, the Clinton Foundation and another private firm founded by a Clinton ally, according to The Post.

The finding that Abedin, who now serves as vice chairwoman of her presidential campaign, had improperly collected taxpayer money could damage Clinton’s candidacy, a GOP lawmakers insist that government rules were bent to benefit Clinton and her aides and at the same time could bolster Democratic claims that Republicans are using their oversight role to purposely damage Clinton politically.

The Post reports that Grassley indicated in the letters he was describing an inquiry by the State Department’s Inspector General. Grassley wrote, in letters to Abedin, Kerry and the Inspector General, that staff of the inspector general had found “at least a reasonable suspicion of a violation” of law concerning the “theft of public money through time and attendance fraud” and possible conflicts to Abedin’s “overlapping employment,” according to the newspaper.

Grassley also noted the possibility that efforts to investigate the allegations were nixed because Abedin’s exchanges were sent through Clinton’s private email server.

The Post reports, citing the letter describing the investigation, Abedin’s time sheets said she never took a vacation or sick leave during her four years at the State Department, which started in January 2009 and last until February 2013. The senator did write the investigation found evidence that Abedin did take some time off, including a 10-day trip to Italy.

Attorneys for Abedin told the newspaper she learned in May that the State Department’s inspector general concluded she improperly collected $9,857 for the time she was on vacation or leave. Abedin responded to the allegations with a 12-page letter contesting the findings and a request for administrative review of the investigation’s conclusions.

In the letters, Grassley also contends Clinton’s private email server interfered with the investigation.

“The OIG had reason to believe that email evidence relevant to that inquiry was contained in emails Ms. Abedin sent and received from her account on Secretary Clinton’s non-government server, making them unavailable to the OIG through its normal statutory right of access records,” he wrote.

Grassley has been questioning Abedin’s “special government employee” status, which allowed her to take a job at the Clinton Foundation and Teneo, a firm led by former aide for Bill Clinton, Douglas Band. Abedin worked there for her final six months at the State Department.

Grassley’s letter to Kerry alleges that Abedin had exchanged at least 7,300 emails that “involved” Band, but didn’t expand on how many of those were between Abedin and Band.

Fox’s summary of the Washington Post Story does not tell you Ms. Abedin’s background, and her “troubling Familial Affiliations”.

According to discoverthenetworks.org,

Huma Abedin was born in 1976 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Her father, Syed Abedin (1928-1993), was an Indian-born scholar who had worked as a visiting professor at Saudi Arabia’s King Abdulaziz University in the early Seventies. 

[She is]

  • Daughter of Saleha Mahmood Abedin, a pro-Sharia sociologist with ties to numerous Islamist organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood
  • Longtime assistant to Hillary Clinton
    Wife of former congressman Anthony Weiner
  • Longtime former employee of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, which shares the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal of establishing Islamic supremacy and Sharia Law worldwide.

…From 1997 until sometime before early 1999, Abedin, while still interning at the White House, was an executive board member of George Washington University’s (GWU) Muslim Students Association (MSA), heading the organization’s “Social Committee.”

It is noteworthy that in 2001-02, soon after Abedin left that executive board, the chaplain and “spritual guide” of GWU’s MSA was Anwar al-Awlaki, the al Qaeda operative who ministered to some of the men who were among the 9/11 hijackers. Another chaplain at GWU’s MSA (from at least October 1999 through April 2002) was Mohamed Omeish, who headed the International Islamic Relief Organization, which has been tied to the funding of al Qaeda. Omeish’s brother, Esam, headed the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Brotherhood’s quasi-official branch in the United States. Both Omeish brothers were closely associated with Abdurahman Alamoudi, who would later be convicted and incarcerated on terrorism charges.

From 1996-2008, Abedin was employed by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) as the assistant editor of its in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA). At least the first seven of those years overlapped with the al Qaeda-affiliated Abdullah Omar Naseef’s active presence at IMMA. Abedin’s last six years at the Institute (2002-2008) were spent as a JMMA editorial board member; for one of those years, 2003, Naseef and Abedin served together on that board.

Abedin went on maternity leave after giving birth to a baby boy in early December 2011. When she returned to work in June 2012, the State Department granted her an arrangement that allowed her to do outside consulting work as a “special government employee,” even as she remained a top advisor in the Department. Abedin did not disclose on her financial report either the arrangement or the$135,000 she earned from it, in violation of a law mandating that public officials disclose significant sources of income. Abedin’s outside clients included the U.S. State Department, Hillary Clinton, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation, and Teneo (a firm co-founded by Doug Band, a former counselor for Bill Clinton). Good-government groups warned of the potential conflict-of-interest inherent in an arangement where a government employee maintains private clients.

In June 2012, five Republican lawmakers (most prominently, Michele Bachmann) sent letters to the inspectors general at the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and State, asking that they investigate whether the Muslim Brotherhood was gaining undue influence over U.S. government officials. One letter, noting that Huma Abedin’s position with Hillary Clinton “affords her routine access to the secretary [of state] and to policymaking,” expressed concern over the fact that Abedin “has three family members—her late father, mother and her brother—connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.” Some other prominent Republicans such as John McCain and John Boehner disavowed the concerns articulated in the letters.

On February 1, 2013—Hillary Clinton’s final day as Secretary of State—Abedinresigned her post as Mrs. Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Yet she would continue to serve as a close aide to Clinton. 

On March 1, 2013, Abedin was tapped to run Clinton’s post-State Department transition team, comprised of a six-person “transition office” located in Washington.

Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is currently an associate editor with the JMMA. Hassan was once a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, at a time when the Center’s board included such Brotherhood-affiliated figures as Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Abdullah Omar Naseef.

Huma’s sister, Heba Abedin (formerly known as “Heba A. Khaled”), is an assistant editor with JMMA, where she served alongside Huma prior to the latter’s departure.

Speaking straight from the heart, as an American citizen, I was offended, in the first place, that someone with direct ties to our sworn enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood, had access to the highest level of Top Secret Information contained in our State Department.

And, the thing is, she not only had access through her job as Assistant to Secretary of State Clinton, she also had access to government information through pillow talk with her husband, then-Congressman and “Professional Sexter” Anthony Weiner.

Now this.

Ms. Abedin could very well have been forwarding official e-mails to her relatives in the Muslim Brotherhood, and thanks to Hillary’s indiscretion (and Huma’s access) in using a Private E-mail Account for official government business, she would never have been found out.

She still may be free and clear, as “the Queen of Mean” has only turned over a small, heavily-redacted portion of the tons of e-mails she sent and received while Secretary of State.

We could…possibly…be looking at Treason.

…2 counts of it.

Until He Comes,

KJ
