College Student Senate Decides That Displaying Our Flag is “Optional”. Perhaps Their Scholarships Should Be, Too.

It is the night of September 13, 1814.  The British fleet are bombarding Fort McHenry in the harbor at Baltimore, Maryland. Francis Scott Key, a 34-year old lawyer-poet, is watching the attack from the deck of a British prisoner-exchange ship. Key had gone seeking the release of a friend. They were told that they had to remain aboard the vessel until the end of the attack. When the battle was over, the following morning, Key had his telescope on the fort and saw the American flag was still waving. The sight of the tattered Stars and Stripes was so moving that he pulled a letter from his pocket and began to write the poem. This poem eventually became the national anthem of the United States – “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’ the perilous fight’
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

It does, sir. Regardless of a bunch of little snot-nosed, ungrateful college kids.

The Sacramento Bee reports that

The UC Davis student senate has made it optional to display the American flag at its meetings, stirring up controversy on campus and conservative blogs.

Senate Bill 76 passed Thursday, said Michael Gofman, a student senator who opposed the change.

The bill amends bylaws that required the United States flag to be on display at every senate meeting of the Associated Students, University of California, Davis. The revised bylaws give senate members the option to petition for the display of the flag 24 hours before each meeting. The ASUCD senate pro tem ultimately has authority to decide whether the U.S. flag will be displayed, according to the revision.

The resolution says that since “the concept of United States of America and patriotism is different for every individual, it should not be compulsory that the flag is in view at all times during Senate meetings.”

Jose Antonio Meneses, who introduced the resolution, said the changes were meant to ensure the student government is following federal law, which he says doesn’t allow an organization to mandate displaying the flag.

“It wasn’t political in any way,” Meneses said. “But because it is the United States flag … it’s a touchy subject to talk about. We want to make sure we are not sued.”

Gofman disagreed, saying all governing bodies within the U.S. – including a student senate – should display the flag.

“It was a purely political issue from the start,” Gofman said.

The student government decision drew attention from internet blogs, many conservative – including Fox News Insider, the Daily Caller and The Blaze. Some stories say the flag has been “banned,” “banished” or “dropped.”

Meneses said that while he supports freedom of speech, many of the stories are inaccurate.

“It’s not a ban on the flag,” he said.

He cited a 1943 U.S. Supreme Court decision that found West Virginia could not compel students to salute the flag or recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

“The opinion in that case is that you can’t force people to pledge your allegiance, by (the flag) being there; by extension, you are pledging your allegiance to a symbol that you don’t relate to or that you don’t equate yourself with,” he said Monday.

He said the flag has never been on display during his two years on the student senate, and no one asked about it or the bylaw requirement until now.

A Facebook post by Gofman the day before the meeting prompted offers of flag donations from veterans groups and fraternities. Gofman plans to introduce a resolution that would allow any member of the senate to bring and display an American flag at any meeting.

There is not enough patriotism, especially at UC Davis, said Gofman, who describes himself as a first-generation American.

“I have a much closer connection to places outside of America,” he said. “I understand what the alternative looks like. I don’t think members of the senate know what it is like to live in a totalitarian country.”

Gofman said he wasn’t aware there was a resolution making the display of the flag mandatory.

“Once it was brought up, I was shocked and embarrassed about it not being followed,” he said.

The controversy over the resolution has generated a lot of negative email to the student senate.

Gofman said that much of the email is from alumni saying they are upset with the decision and don’t plan to donate to the school again.

In a statement on Facebook, Gofman condemned two of the emails, one he characterized as “racist” and the other as threatening the physical safety of the senators who voted against the bill.

“This is unacceptable behavior,” he said.

Meneses said much of the hate mail is based on incorrect facts.

“When I introduced the bill, I didn’t know it would be controversial,” he said.

Sure, you didn’t, Skippy.

And I am a 22 year old blonde Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader named Buffy.

I remember back in elementary school, every morning we began school by singing “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” and then, reciting The Pledge of Allegiance. Even remembering that ritual today, I find comfort in it.

In the South, at least in the Mississippi County in which I live, the school day still begins with the recitation of the Pledge, which is led by a group of students, standing around a microphone in the Principal’s Office.

Unfortunately, that is no longer the case in many schools around our blessed land.

Under the Obama Administration, good old-fashioned American Patriotism was not considered Politically Correct.

So, what is the cause of this 180 degree turn from where we were, as a mostly cohesive society, based on love of God and Country, which I remember so fondly from my childhood, to where we are now as a country divided and comprised, to a certain extent,  of individuals, who believe in relative morality, situational ethics, and a malleable Constitution.

Learned individuals have been trying to discern exactly what has caused this Societal and Cultural Decline, and in the process, they have blamed it on everything from poor schools to poverty to malnutrition.

Being a simple man, (Hey, that would make a great title for a rock song. Oh, wait. It was. Never mind.) I believe that because Americans have wanted, for at least 3 generations now, to give their children everything materialistically possible, they have to a great extent, ignored teaching their children both how to discern between right and wrong and how to be grateful for living in the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth. A country which provides them with endless opportunities and advantages…like college scholarships.

God’s Word tells us that we, as parents, should

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)

What these ungrateful college kids do not understand is the fact that the exceptionalism of America lies not in the Halls of Power in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

Liberal Bureaucrats, like Secretary of State John Kerry and his boss, are professional political prevaricators. Men and women, whose ethics and morality change with the direction of the wind, and whose egos override their judgment…every time.

America is a Constitutional Republic. We are not ruled by a faceless all-powerful government. America’s politicians are OUR SERVANTS….not the other way around.

And, as their Boss, we expect them to possess a more complete knowledge of the history of the most exceptional nation on the face of God’s green Earth. We expect them to honor and respect the lives given and the sacrifices made by courageous Americans, who paved the way for this selfish generation, who are disrespecting a flag which brave men and women before them have died for and who are, at the same time, protesting in a desperate attempt to rewrite American History and to overturn the verified results of a Presidential Election in order for the results to be in accordance with the tenets of their Liberal Ideology.

These “Special Snowflakes’ ” blatant hatred of America and our country’s exceptionalism in the long run, will be of little consequence.

America’s place in the world and her Traditional Values are not things so fragile that they can be unalterably changed by a bunch of lightweight ungrateful brats like them.

As author Dinesh D’ Souza wrote…

What does the doctrine of American exceptionalism empower the United States to do? Nothing more than to act better than traditional empires – committed to looting and conquest – have done. So that’s American exceptionalism: an exceptionalism based on noble ideas, ideas that it holds itself to even when it falls short of them.

In conclusion, it is not a bunch of ungrateful college kids who decide America’s place in the world or the values which average Americans hold dear.

It is the fact of American Exceptionalism, seen in the lives of average hard-working Americans, like you and me.

And, that is something that those who embrace the failed political ideology of these
“Special Snowflakes” will never understand.

For what they call “Nationalism”, we call PATRIOTISM.

And what they call a “Symbol of Hate”, we honor and affectionately refer to as “Old Glory”.

Free Speech, Garland, Texas, and Liberal Hypocrisy

May 9, 2015

islam-cartoonI began writing this daily blog in April of 2010. Since then, Gentle Reader, you and I have born witness to a lot of stupid, incomprehensible things, including the election of Barack Hussein Obama.

But, I digress…

As you know, if you haven’t been hiding under a rock, like those guys in the old Gieco Commercial, two Home-grown Jihadists attacked a “Draw Mohammed” Event in Garland, Texas, sponsored by anti- Islamic Activist Pamela Geller.

Thanks to the actions of a brave off-duty Traffic Cop, who was a Security Guard at the event, those two Followers of Mohammed are now surrounded by their 72 virgins…who all look like Rosie O’Donnell.

After the event, is when things began to get stupid.

Modern American Liberals, instead of being thankful that those at the event, including Geller herself, were not killed in a scene of carnage and mass murder, began to blame the actions of the two Radical Islamic Whackjobs on her.

According to these Liberals, our Constitutional Right to Free Speech does not include being able to impugn a violent pedophile, whose radical followers are presently decapitating Christians and Homosexuals in record numbers, during a bloody march across the Middle East, reminiscent of the Third Reich.

These same Liberals have nothing to say, when art exhibits, featuring blasphemous images, such as “Piss Christ” (a crucifix in a jar of urine) and Elephant Dung Virgin Mary (a portrait of the Virgin Mary smeared in Elephant Dung), intentionally attacking and desecrating the Christian Faith of 74% of Americans, are displayed in art galleries from coast to coast and ignorant Liberal Atheists post ugly meme after ugly meme on Facebook, savagely attacking the Faith of Our Fathers.

Why is it okay to impugn the faith of 74% of Americans, and not okay to impugn the faith of 1%?

Are Liberals scared of the radical followers of Mohammed?

Do Liberals resent Christianity and the overwhelming majority of Americans that much?

Even as the recent barbarous acts unfolded in France and the Radical Muslims of ISIS continued their genocidal jihad against Christians in Iraq, I continued to hear and read from some of this “Me, First Generation” that there is not any difference between American Christianity and Radical Islam. Quite frankly, that’s like saying that there’s no difference between Mister Rogers and Ted Bundy (look them up, children).

In Islam, the way to “walk with God and escape his judgement on that final day of judgment” is through ‘falah’, which means self-effort or positive achievement. The faithful must submit to God and follow all of his laws as found in the Koran. Judgment day in Islam involves some sort of measurement of what the believer has done wrong and what they have done right. And, even then, you might not be let into heaven if Allah decides you’re not good enough.

This is the direct opposite of Christianity.

According to the Bible, no man can ever be good enough to deserve God’s favor, to win God’s heaven, because from birth we have Free Will. This Free Will may cause us to reject God and live our lives our own way. That’s why it was necessary for Jesus Christ to die for our sins, covering us in His blood of the New Covenant.

God’s Word tells us that what we need is not ‘falah,’ but faith. To have faith in, to trust, to rely on Jesus and his death as as “the expiation for our sins”. Those who have been Saved by Jesus Christ can be sure that in the future God will welcome them into heaven with wide open arms, because they have been washed by His blood.

Islam and Christianity present two very different Deities, who may share some similarities, but who have different identities and ultimately different standards. To pretend they are the same is not only to be clueless of the faith of 74% of the citizens of this nation, but, to be ignorant of an integral part of our American Heritage, the legacy of Christian Faith, which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

Now, I am not saying that every Muslim is on a jihad against “the infidels”.

However…

When Christians become “radicalized”, we want to share the testimony of what God has done for us through His love, with everyone we meet. We get involved in our local church and we become better fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, and American Citizens.

When Muslims become “radicalized”, they want to “kill the Infidels” in the name of “Allah the Merciful”.

In the case of the Chechen Muslim brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon, their immersion into Radical Islam led them to “kill the infidels” that horrendous day.

In the case of the barbarians of al Qaeda, ISIS, and the rest of the Muslim Brotherhood, it has turned them into doppelgangers of the Nazi Butchers of Dachau.

For Liberals to deny that, and to refuse to identify Islamic Terrorism, when it rears its ugly head, is disingenuous at best, and just plain out-and-out lying at worst.

Additionally, to blame the actions of those two Radical Islamic Whackjobs in Garland, Texas on Pamela Geller exercising her Constitutional Right to Free Speech is downright stupid…bordering on traitorous.

The Incendiary Nature of Liberal “Compromise” and Conservative Truth

January 22, 2015

AFBrancoVoting Results111514I’m “incendiary”.

I did not know that until recently, when I was told that by an individual on a political Facebook page. Hold on, I take that back. I was told this by a friend in a private message after I was banned by the Facebook Page I just mentioned.

You see, it happened this way: a good friend of mine suggested that I join a Facebook Page which was made up of both Conservatives and Liberals, and which was supposedly created in the spirit of compromise.

Well, I soon found out, that just like in the real world, the word compromise to American Liberals, means that you compromise, as a Conservative, your morals, values, and opinions, to be just like theirs. In other words, they want you to be a part of the hive mind.

Now, I’m no stranger to conducting online chats with Liberals. I first became attracted to political talk on the internet, when the great Conservative Political Pundit, Michelle Malkin, still owned the Conservative website, www.hotair.com.

While on that website, which I joined shortly before the November 2008 presidential elections, I became friends with a poster who had the handle of, believe it or not, Manly Rash.

“Manly”, soon after the failure of John McCain in the presidential elections, began his own website, manlyrash. com. I started to hang out over there a little bit, and he soon asked me to be a contributor, writing a weekly blog to be featured on his site.

What started out as a weekly thing, soon turned into a daily thing.

In April of 2010, I began this website, and since then, I have written everyday, rain or snow, in sickness and in health.

I didn’t do it to be intentionally incendiary, whatever that means.

The reason I took up blogging, is because I enjoy writing. I always have had the gift of gab, having been a smart aleck since birth, a gift I inherited from my dear Daddy, who was funny as a stitch and a great salesman.

I was raised in a Conservative Christian household, and that is the way that I view things. I have always viewed things that way and don’t intend to stop it now.

What I have found out though, is that nowadays, American Liberals do not want to hear the truth, and they have very thin skins.

American Liberals want to tell you your opinion, they do not want to hear it. Because, if they were forced to hear it, then they would have to accept the reality that Conservatives are still the political majority in this nation.

Additionally, they would have to accept the fact that Americans, who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, constitute 75 percent of our country’s population.

These simple truths are just too much for the narrow mind of the Modern American Liberal to bear.

That is why you can see them on Political Websites, posting repetitively and attempting to monopolize any conversation that they are in.

It is not that they are not intelligent, quite a few of Modern American Liberals actually are. It’s just the fact that they have allowed their feelings to control how they rationalize things and thus, their entire world view.

Beginning with the campaign of Barack Hussein Obama, (And yes I included his middle name, his parents weren’t ashamed by it, why should you Liberals be?), Liberals have been so idolatrous  over their “messiah” that they have lost all their common sense.

Liberals, just as they do in the real world, seem to believe that if they can speak louder and more often than anybody else, that that makes their view the correct one. That is why you see them attempt to rewrite history over and over again, as they did in the failed movie “Selma”, where they attempted to portray President Johnson as an enemy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., when in reality they were friends.

I often find myself getting frustrated over the direction of the country, especially since January of 2009. This blog allows me to vent my spleen and keeps me from punching a hole in the wall.

I suppose I am incendiary, if that means that I am on fire for Christ and that I’m fueled by the Torch of Liberty.

Without being anchored on the Solid Rock, America would have been a failed experiment, assigned to the dustbin of history, years ago.

That still, small voice which resides within each one of us, has led Americans to do great things, in service to their country and the concept of American Freedom, as personified by Lady Liberty, standing so majestically in New York Harbor.

The Founders of our country were strong Christian Men with a fire in the bellies to fight for their freedom in the cause of liberty for all.

My Daddy was a strong Christian man who landed on the beaches of Normandy, as I have related several times over the years on this blog.

God gave us this nation, ensconced in the concept of “Liberty and Justice for all”.

By His Grace, we will keep it.

You know what?

I am incendiary… and proud of it.

As long as a Divine Spark burns within me, I will bask in the glow of the Flame of Liberty and write about God and Country.

So help me, God.

A Tale of Bubba Clinton, a Pedophile, and Selective Liberal Outrage

January 5, 2015

clintoncartoonNow, it’s no secret to anyone who follows politics, that American Liberals can go from mellow to outraged in less than 5 seconds. And, they pick the stupidest things to be outraged about.

Recently, during the holidays, they decided that they would become outraged over the fact that Sarah Palin’s son, Tryg, stood on the family Labrador Retriever, in order to help Mommy do the dishes. If you look at the photograph, the dog doesn’t appear to be hurt at all. He just has that look on his face like, “What is this kid up to now?

Of course, the people from PETA had to get their two cents worth in, to which Palin replied, “Chill. Trig didn’t eat the dog.”

It was later revealed that Syndicated Television Talk Show Host, Ellen DeGeneres, had posted a photograph of one of her nephews doing the exact same thing, in order to reach the top of the fireplace mantle.

Of course, nothing was said about that.

Yesterday afternoon, I found myself the target of a bunch of Liberals’ selective outrageous outrage.

While I was at work, my phone buzzed, telling me that somebody had commented on the blog. Imagine my surprise, when I saw the comment was actually about a blog I had written exactly one year ago today. The subject of the blog was the fact that Michelle Obama has decided to extend the family’s annual Hawaiian Holiday Family Vacation, ON OUR DIME, while Barack and the girls returned to Washington, DC.

Some Liberal, searching for articles about this year’s Obama Family Vacation, saw my blog from last year, and presumed that I was lying about the Obama’s Family Vacation that they just returned from.

When I did not answer their insulting and foolish comments on this blog, they decided to take it upon themselves to post about the blog on their Facebook Page, unleashing a barrage in my Comments Section of misguided Liberal Comments, which I was forced to spam, since they were about a blog which was one year old and they were using language which would make Madonna blush.

I did, however, answer one commenter, telling them to let everyone on that person’s Facebook Page know that the blog was a year old.

Having said all that, and experienced all that yesterday, I wonder how outraged those same Liberals will be about this story…

The Daily Mail reports that

A new lawsuit has revealed the extent of former President Clinton’s friendship with a fundraiser who was later jailed for having sex with an underage prostitute.

Bill Clinton’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who served time in 2008 for his illegal sexual partners, included up multiple trips to the onetime billionaire’s private island in the Caribbean where underage girls were allegedly kept as sex slaves.

The National Enquirer has released new details about the two men’s friendship, which seems to have ended abruptly around the time of Epstein’s arrest.

Tales of orgies and young girls being shipped to the island, called Little St. James, have been revealed as part of an ongoing lawsuit between Epstein and his former lawyers Scott Rothstein and Bradley Edwards.

It is unclear what the basis of the suit is, but they go on to call witness testimony from some of the frequent guests at Epstein’s island to talk about the wild parties that were held there in the early 2000s.

Flight logs pinpoint Clinton’s trips on Epstein’s jet between the years 2002 and 2005, while he was working on his philanthropic post-presidential career and while his wife Hillary was a Senator for their adopted state of New York.

‘I remember asking Jeffrey what’s Bill Clinton doing here kind fo thing, and he laughed it off and said well he owes me a favor,’ one unidentified woman said in the lawsuit, which was filed in Palm Beach Circuit Court.

The woman went on to say how orgies were a regular occurrence and she recalled two young girls from New York who were always seen around the five-house compound but their personal backstories were never revealed.

At least one woman on the compound was there unwillingly, as the suit identifies a woman as Jane Doe 102.

She ‘was forced to live as one of Epstein’s underage sex slaves for years and was forced to have sex with… politicians, businessmen, royalty, academicians, etc,’ the lawsuit says according to The Enquirer.

Epstein’s sexual exploits have been documented since 2005, when a woman in Palm Beach contacted police saying that her 14-year-old daughter had been paid $300 to massage him and then have sex.

The claim prompted a nearly year-long investigation that led to the eventual charge of soliciting prostitution which came as part of a plea deal. He spent 13 months of a 18-month sentence in jail and remains a registered sex offender. 

Several of his famous friends cut ties- including Clinton and then-New York Governor Eliot Spitzer who returned his campaign donations- but not all of them: Prince Andrew reportedly stayed at Epstein’s mansion in New York in 2010, months after he was released from jail.

Before you question The Daily Mail’s source, just remember, it was the National Enquirer who ended the political career of John Edwards.

Gosh. And, just in time for the kickoff of Hillary’s Campaign for the Democrat Presidential Candidate Nomination.

Monica who?

I wonder if there will be any Liberal outrageous outrage over this?

I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

Those Glass Houses will get you…every time.

Of Politics and “Pharisees” [A KJ Sunday Morning Op Ed]

September 27, 2014

American Christianity 2A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right, but a fool’s heart to the left. – Ecclesiastes 10:2

We have all known for sometime that this is not our fathers’ Democrat Party. Conservatives have been driven out and “Moderates” are an endangered species.

Today’s Democrats embrace a Far Left Poiltical Ideology, in which there is no room for a Supreme Being.

Don’t believe me? Remember what happened at the last Democratic National Convention?

Delegates and members of the Democratic party booed after former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) discussed God and moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, had to ask for the Yea and Nay vote several times before declaring the motion passed.

C-SPAN cameras captured the dissatisfaction among members after the motion passed.

More information from the Associated Press:
Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

The move came after criticism from Republicans.

Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.

He called for a vote three times before ruling.

The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”

The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama’s personal views on Jerusalem.

Now that we’ve established that, there seems to be a misconception among “the Smartest People in the Room”, American Liberals, about Christian American Conservatives.

American Liberals seem to believe that because we are strong in the Faith of Our Fathers, that we are somehow gullible or less intelligent than they are.

And, this hubris reaches all the way up to the White House.

When Obama was campaigning for the presidency, he appeared in April of 2008 at a fundraiser in Pennsylvania, where he talked about and made fun of all of us “ignorant” Conservative American Christians clinging to our Bibles and guns.

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

After Obama took office, he made a point of stating several times that America was not just a Christian nation anymore.

And, while that is true to a certain extent, it is also true that the overwhelming majority, 76% of Americans still proclaim themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ. And even beyond that, 92% of Americans still believe in God.

What is amazing to me, though, is how, during this administration, American Christianity has been attacked on all fronts:  militarily, culturally, and even within organized religion, itself.

From illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues have been under fire by Liberals, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, then those of us who actually read God’s Word.

Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22

When you enter into a facebook “discussion” with these “new Pharisees”, and you counter their arguments on these topics with Scripture, Liberals are initially slow to respond.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 ESV 

Most Liberals will start “Googling” these topics, looking for any Scriptures that will substantiate their position.

There’s been many a time they have come back at me with Old Testament Scripture. It is then that I explain to them about the sacrifice that Christ made for us sinners, freeing Christians from Jewish Law and taking the punishment for our sins , creating a New Covenant by covering Christians through the shedding of His blood.

At that point in the “discussion”, there is a long pause, as they are trying to figure out a comeback.

The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.- 1 Corinthians 2:14

This misconception, which I have been trying to explain, involves Liberals’ belief that American Christians will not fight back against them and the things they want to do in our society.

If there’s one thing during the six and a half years of anti Christian bias, which we have experienced during the Obama administration, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.

It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean , divisive, and intolerant.

I believe Liberals react that way because internally, they are having a kicking and screaming temper tantrum, because they cannot get their way.

This week, on October 3rd, the movie “Left Behind” starring Nicolas Cage, premieres.

Based on the immensely popular novel series of the same name, the movie tells about the rapture, an event believed by Christians to happen before a horrible period , known as the Tribulation, in which Christians will be tortured and put to death, along with millions of people worldwide, as famine, pestilence, and war spread throughout the world.

Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.- 1 Thessalonians 4:17

This period will end with the glorious reappearance during which Jesus Christ will return to work and defeat the forces of evil.

I believe that this movie will do well at the box office and that Redbox will also profit well from it.

Lately, all Christian movies have done well. Recently, I and my bride rented the movie, “God is Not Dead”. We found it to be both well written and well-acted.

Thinking about America’s reaction to these Christian movies caused me to think about their reaction to Liberal-themed movies during the Bush administration, such as “Redacted”, which was a movie about the Iraq War which disparaged our Brightest and Best.

It bombed terribly because it did not reflect the feelings and values of the American public.

The point which I’ve been trying to make today is that this is still a majority Christian nation.

And, while God indeed, tells us to be meek, He also instructs us to be wise.

Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.- Matthew 10:16

That is the reason why Liberals have failed to convince the majority of Americans to foreswear our traditional American Faith and Values System and our Christianity.

And, it frustrates them when they realize that we continue to hold fast to our Traditional American Faith and Values.

What they don’t understand, is that we have read the back of the Book. We know how all this ends.

Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.- Mathew 24:42-44

Liberals Upset Over Something “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson Said…Again.

September 4, 2014

PhilRobertsonCartoonAmerican Liberals have, once again, taken a ride on Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train”.

…at least the ones whom I have engaged in “discussions” on Facebook Political Pages, within the last 24 hours, have.

The “smartest people in the room” are in the middle of a serious case of denial over the the objectives of the followers of Radical Islam.

In “talking” to them, I have found their sense of superiority frustrating and their naivete as to the barbaric nature of these Jihadists, breathtaking.

If I were to use the latest acronym SMH,”Twitter” for “Shaking My Head” to describe my incredulity toward this attitude of the self-proclaimed “Smartest People in the Room”, that would be a mammoth understatement.

American Liberals were positively apoplectic yesterday over “Duck Commander” and Christian Preacher, Phil Robertson’s recent interview with Fox New’s Sean Hannity, in which the “Duck Dynasty” Patriarch made his feelings about the Radical Muslims, who seek to destroy us, known in no uncertain terms.  Here is an excerpt, courtesy of nation.foxnews.com:

ROBERTSON: Worldwide, planet-wide, Biblically speaking, two groups of people, the children of God, and the whole world is under the control of the evil one. That’s First John 5:19. The evil one works in those who are disobedient. Galatians 3, they are prisoners of sin. Second Timothy 2, the Bible says they’ve been taken captive by Satan to do his will.

Listen, let me show you one. I’ve got the old — hey, America, Declaration of Independence, it’s my book marker. Don’t forget that. Listen to this, Sean. Solomon, one of the wisest men on earth if not the wisest, he’s speaking of wisdom, “Whoever finds me, wisdom finds light. Watch and receives favor from the lord. But whoever fails to find me,” this is the God of the Bible, “harms himself.” Now, listen to this on this ISIS thing, “All who hate me love death.”

So you scratch your head and you say, well, why is it that when we’re not even over there in the Middle East, why do they continue to slaughter each other when we’re not even on the premises? They can’t blame us. We left Iraq. You said what happened in Egypt and Syria, you say in Libya. They just slaughter each other. You say, what? “All who hate me love death,” Sean.

HANNITY: What is the answer? I think the only answer is, I think they are at war with us.

ROBERTSON: Yes.

HANNITY: Whether we like it or not, I think most people would rather live in peace. Most Americans, just leave us alone, we’ll leave you alone. They’re not going to leave us alone. They’re not going to leave Israel alone. So that leaves us with two options — do nothing and get ready for the next attack. And then we’ll have a report that says, they’re at war with us, we weren’t at war with them.

ROBERTSON: In this case you either have to convert them, which I think would be next to impossible. I’m not giving up on them, but I’m just saying, either convert them or kill them. One or the other.

HANNITY: That’s going —

ROBERTSON: Maybe that time has come and gone, so I think that with this ideology that we’re faced with, this is like street gangs, street thugs on steroids. You think about it, most of the wars we’ve fought, they were not asymmetrical like this one. This one, it’s not a country with a standing army, and we line up and do battle with a certain amount of rules that they violate. But you say this is more like worldwide gang warfare, but this gang is well-armed and well-organized. I think, my opinion, we’re going to have to deal with this group way more harshly than we have up to this point.

HANNITY: Because they’re so harsh. I know they’re going to be people that are always looking to jump on you and say, “Convert them or kill them.” And they’re going to say, “There goes Phil Robertson again.” I know the media. I know they how act.

ROBERTSON: I’d much rather have a Bible study with all of them and show them the error of their ways and point them to Jesus Christ, the author and perfector of having your sins removed and being raised from the dead. I would rather preach the gospel of Jesus to them. However, if it’s a gun fight and a gun fight alone, if that is what they’re looking for, me, personally I am prepared for either one.

As I wrote in my post, “Liberals Pushing “Moral Equivalency” Between American Christianity and Radical Islam”, American Liberals simply do not have a clue as to whom their real enemies are.

America’s chief ally during World War II, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, once said of Islam,

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrogradeforce exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step, and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it (Islam) has vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Some of this present “Me, First Generation” believe that there is not any difference between American Christianity and Radical Islam. Quite frankly, that’s like saying that there’s no difference between an in-ground swimming pool and a garden hose.

Islam and Christianity present two very different Deities, who may share some similarities, but who have different identities and ultimately different standards. To pretend they are the same is not only to be clueless of the faith of 76% of the citizens of this nation, but, to be ignorant of an integral part of our American Heritage, the legacy of Christian Faith, which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us.

Just like Prime Minister Churchill, I am not saying that every Muslim is on a jihad against “the Infidels”.

However…

When Christians become “radicalized”, we want to share the testimony of what God has done for us through His love, with everyone we meet. We get involved in our local church and we become better fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, and American citizens.

When Muslims become “radicalized”, they want to “kill the Infidels” in the name of “Allah the Merciful”.

In the case of the Chechen Muslim brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon, their immersion into Radical Islam led them to “kill the infidels” that horrendous day.

For Liberals to deny that, is disingenuous at best, and just plain out-and-out lying at worst.

Soon after Duck Dynasty became a hit, A&E found out that not only were the Robertsons’ steadfast and unyielding in the exercise of their Christian Faith, but they were also loved by Americans, who laughed with them, instead of at them. It was then that A&E realized that they had a problem…the joke was on them.

And, if these same Liberals, who always seem to argue with Conservatives from a position of “unsubstantiated superiority”, believe that Radical Muslims will somehow spare them from the brutality which they dole out to every Infidel they come across, then the joke is still on them…and the punchline will be so far over their head…that they will lose it.

Until He Comes,
