The Constitution, Christianity, and Patriotism

The Constitution, Christianity, and Patriotism “…The Constitution is the civil Bible of Americans…

by Bill Lockwood

Some suggest that biblical commands never enjoin one to be “patriotic” regarding America. Patriotism, it is supposed, is not commended in scripture; therefore, Christians need emphasize Americanism less.

This demonstrates a fundamental lack of understanding of America and Americanism; specifically, the God-inspired freedoms which form our core. It is true that most peoples love their own country, the place of their nativity. And if that was all that is involved in American patriotism–love of the fatherland–then the criticism might be well-founded. But America is different. It is unique in the history of the world. And it is not simply that it is unique that ought to cause Christians to be patriotic—but due to the substance of that uniqueness. This substance makes it superior.

John Adams, the second president of the United States, gives us a clue to the singular character of our nation. America is the first time in history, he noted, since even the time of Adam and Eve, that humanity might be able to enjoy, by the framework of governing principles, the freedoms which come from God. He was reflecting upon the sad fact that all governments and nations throughout history curtail the liberty which can only come from God since these governments do not begin with the fundamental premise of the sacredness of human life.

More to the point, a statement drafted first in 1922 by the Committee for Constitutional Government and signed by such dignitaries as Herbert Hoover, Alfred E. Smith, Mrs. Calvin Coolidge, Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Mrs. William H. Taft and others, recommended a study of the Constitution on the following grounds.

Menaced by collectivist trends, we must seek revival of our strength in the spiritual foundations which are the bedrock of our republic. Democracy is the outgrowth of the religious conviction of the sacredness of every human life. On the religious side, its highest embodiment is the Bible; on the political, the Constitution. As has been said so well, ‘The Constitution is the civil Bible of Americans.’ Next to the Bible, the best book on the Constitution should be in every home, school, library and parish hall.

Our republic is the direct outgrowth of Christianity. The founding generation understood exactly what they were doing. For the first time in recorded history biblical values were enshrined as the basis of a limited government called a republic in which individual freedom was based upon individual worth.

This is why founder Noah Webster admonished, “Our citizens should early understand that the genuine source of correct republican principles is the Bible, particularly the New Testament, or the Christian religion … and to this we owe our free constitutions of government.” For the same reason Patrick Henry, a long time preacher, insisted that our nation was actually founded upon Jesus Christ. Strange sounds for modern ears.

Practically every founder which wrote on the subject agreed with Henry. Alexander Hamilton observed, for example, that “The law … dictated by God Himself is, of course, superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries, and at all times. No human laws are of any validity if contrary to this.”

Another signer of the Constitution, Rufus King, stated, “The … law established by the Creator … extends over the whole globe, is everywhere and at all times binding upon mankind….This is the law of God by which he makes his way known to man and is paramount to all human control.”

None of the above is to say that pulpits ought to draw their texts from particular Articles of the Constitution upon which to preach; for they are to “preach the word” (2 Tim. 4:2).  But it is to say that a failure to recognize Christianity as the bulwark of our nation’s charter betrays a very limited understanding of America as well as the Bible. 

The very concepts of the sacredness of life, liberty, and private property—which the entire construct of the Constitution is designed to protect–are biblical in nature and are not traceable to any other source. The “transcendent values of Biblical natural law were the foundation of the American republic,” summarizes constitutionalist David Barton (Original Intent).

For this cause, Abraham Lincoln advised regarding the Constitution:

Let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges, let it be written in primers, in spelling books and in almanacs, let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation, and, in particular, a reverence for the Constitution.

Again, it is education in the principles behind our founding charter which Lincoln was encouraging. The same is true for western culture as a whole. It is superior to other cultures precisely because of the undergirding concepts upon which it is based. As Herbert Schlossberg put it in Idols for Destruction,

Cultures are equal in value only if there is no standard against which to judge them. The culture of the West, infused as it is with Christian values, is superior to any other, and all the valid charges against the West are indications that it has betrayed its own heritage. It is not superior because it is wealthy; it is wealthy because it is superior, because it believes that work is a calling, that matter is important, that reason is a gift of God. This culture, God’s gift, transmits its material blessings along with its interpretation of reality.

America’s greatness is only assessed by the eternal standard of God’s Word. Alexis de Tocqueville is credited with this famous passage in which the Frenchman searched for the greatness of America. His answer was, “Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because America is good and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” (Ezra Taft Benson, God, Family, Country: Our Three Great Loyalties).

It is not commendable that many modern pulpits cannot seem to recognize that when they preach on the sacredness of an individual life they are preaching God-given values which, because of the Bible, became the foundation of Americanism—a unique event in world history. Is this not worthy of Christian homage?

Or, when preachers “invite” sinners to obey the gospel (1 Pet. 4:17) they are celebrating the concept of liberty and free choice protected by our wise founders.  Does this protection not call forth our reverence? Or, when pleading for donations they are assuming that God has invested people with private property which they can dispose of at their own volition; and because the founders believed in these biblical principles they constructed a lawful system of protection to guard that property. Should we not pay homage to this system?

Patriotism runs much deeper than love of my birthplace or attachment to the language I speak. It glories in God’s grace that enabled our founders to infuse the ideals of God into the framework of society. No other nation has ever attempted such a project. American patriotism is in reality a loyal adhesion to Christian principles which were grafted into a governing system.

The red, white, and blue therefore, evoke deep feelings not merely because I was born here—but due to the fact that these colors represent the fundamental godly doctrines which my forefathers died to protect. Not all of them lived in accordance with these values—to be sure– but they believed in them.   

America is not merely exceptional. This means “better than average; not normal.” It is that. But it is also unique in that it is unequalled. It is superior. And this distinction lies in its reliance upon Christianity by which our nation was forged.

Shocked by Scandals? Welcome to the New Amerika

Shocked by Scandals? Welcome to the NEW AMERIKA! “Samuel Adams Warned that “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.

by Bill Lockwood

Sexual misconduct is rampant. National degeneracy and indecency have become so widespread that Congressional lawmakers now have a secret mysterious slush fund financed by the American taxpayers to help pay their legal bills and settle accusations against them. Unbelievable.

In the wake of increasing revelations of Congressional misconduct and disregard for decent standards of morality, Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) has sponsored a resolution that requires all House members, officers, employees, including interns, detailees, and fellows, to complete “anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training during each session of Congress.” She is also exploring the prevention of further use of taxpayer money to assist offending members of Congress, such as Democrat John Conyers, who is reportedly raided that fund four times.

Let’s back up. The exponential increase of sexual misconduct is the result of three things.

First, the continual concentrated assault against Christian morals throughout our culture. The underpinnings of our society have been unapologetically Christian. In his Farewell Address, George Washington reminded the nation of the following:

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens….And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education … reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

By “religion” Washington meant the “Christian religion.” Rising up like a prophet the father of our country warned us that not only are Christian principles the “pillars of human happiness” but without these principles there is no patriotism. The entire founding generation reverberated with the same admonitions.

Samuel Adams Warned that “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.” James Madison observed that if there be no virtue among us “we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks, no form of government, can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.”

The entertainment industry has made it a staple fare to mock Christianity, while Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and even paganism of the Indian culture receives favorable treatment. Public schoolhouses openly teach Marxist principles which are grounded in atheism, while Bible reading, Christian prayer-offering and the teaching of biblical morality has been purposefully excised from all curriculums. The past several generations which has been reared on godless humanistic principles is having a telling effect.

Second, the deliberate removal of Constitutional restraints on federal spending. Today, at least two-thirds or more of all government spending might be classified as “benevolent expenditures.” From HUD housing grants, NEA education, welfare, block grants to states, incentives to green energy, farm subsidies, business subsidies, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, National Endowment of the arts, ad nauseam—the only limit to Congressional spending is the lack of new imaginative programs to be conceived by Congressmen and Senators.

The fact is all such spending is strictly unconstitutional. The only legitimate use of public funds is that public monies must benefit the entire population. The Constitution empowers Congress (Art. 1, Sec. 8) to expend monies only to the extent that it benefits the entire nation. Alexander Hamilton explains,

The welfare of the community [of states] is the only legitimate end for which money can be raised from the community. Congress can be considered only under one restriction, which does not apply to other governments. They cannot rightfully apply the money they raise to any purpose merely or purely local … The constitutional test of a right application must always be, whether it be for a purpose general or local in nature.

It is unlawful and illegal to remove money from one segment of the population to redistribute it to another. This common-sense approach to Congressional spending has been hated by the liberal left since the inception of our Charter—The Constitution. Finally, in 1936, during the Roosevelt Administration, “general welfare” was twisted to teach “special welfare” and America has not been the same since. Nor do mild tax relief bills such as are now before Congress hope to reform us—because Congress continues to flagrantly violate the spirit and letter of the Constitution by out-of-control spending.

Once that socialistic racket started, there is no way to stop the runaway train but by a total financial collapse. Money is so freely earmarked by Congress for pork projects and special interest spending that the ability to divert public funds for private use becomes part of the program.

Third, the decided gravitational shift toward a more centralized statist government. The same forces that began pushing for taxpayer subsidized welfare spending have been drawing all power to Washington, D.C. for over a century. Termed “the swamp” by President Trump, the locus of power is settled in the nation’s capital.

Every minute of private life is decided by masters in Congress, from housing codes, land use, school curriculum, health care decisions, workplace salary, workplace hours, hiring standards in mom-and-pop shops, banking standards, building procedures, regulating down even to how much water one has in his or her toilet. Everything is legislated by federal regulators. This does not even smell like freedom.

Every goal of a bottom-up government envisioned by the Framers has been turned upside down. We now suffer from top-down power control. Practically speaking, this means that representatives at the federal level are almost completely out of reach by those who hired them and those for whom they supposedly work—the taxpaying citizen.

Having shown some of the causes of the current immoral morass in which we find ourselves, here are some suggestions addressed to the immediate problem at hand. (1) Forget mandatory “sensitivity and sexual harassment training” for Congress and staffers. Laudable as is Rep. Comstock’s efforts, they are not enough. Cancer is not cured by such light measures. Besides, these public servants do not need sexual harassment “training.” They already know it is wrong. Matt Lauer is already out there apologizing for his misconduct. These guys already recognize what is right and wrong—they simply lack the moral fortitude to act in harmony with principle.

(2) Impose mandatory expulsion hearings. Such is provided for in our Constitution in Article 1, Section 5. Follow it. Adam Clayton Powell was expelled from Congress in 1985 for fraud and forgery—Congress needs grow a backbone and begin expulsion hearings on Conyers and Franken and others. Quit asking them to step down. Get them out.

(3) Prevention of further use of taxpayer money for nefarious purposes is commendable—we appreciate Congresswoman Comstock’s goal here—but how about demanding these lecherous Congressmen pay it back? It is our money. If they refuse—jail time. Let these measures be the sensitivity and sexual harassment training. Stop playing games.

Have the Democrats Become the Face of Revolutionary Communist Party?

Have the Democrats Become the Face of the Revolutionary Communist Party? “…before Trump was even moved into the White House, Democrat lawless lawmakers were haranguing the public with cries of impeachment.

by Bill Lockwood

The Revolutionary Communist Party states as its goal to bring about “massive political resistance” to the system of capitalism, which they say, is “concentrated in the ruling class and institutions and agencies.” America is a system of “imperialism” to the communists, which demands more than simple reform. It requires revolution among the masses of people.

From the beginning of Donald Trump’s inauguration, before Trump was even moved into the White House, Democrat lawless lawmakers were haranguing the public with cries of impeachment. Maxine Waters (D-CA), for example, led the mutinous minions in Congress on a rampage against the president. Now comes Al Green (D-TX) to the forefront.

As reported by The Hill, Rep. Al Green announced on Wednesday that he will force a vote on the House floor to impeach President Trump before Christmas. On what charges will Green bring a vote on impeachment hearings? Says Green in a speech on the House floor: “… there will be a vote on the chief inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia, sexism, ethnocentrism. There will be a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on the impeachment of the president.”

Green has previously introduced articles of impeachment, being the loudest recent voice in the Democratic chorus calling for the removal of Donald Trump from office. The liberal MSM has also continually beat the drum for impeachment proceedings against our president, most recently by The New York Times’ Michelle Goldberg whose recent article is entitled, “Democrats Should Embrace Impeachment.”

The Constitution

Before making a few observations it is helpful to refer back to our Founding Charter, The Constitution. Not that the Democrats have any concern for the Constitution, because they do not in any way shape or form. Few Republicans do either. Nevertheless, the Constitutional word “impeachment” (Article I, Section 2, Clause 5) refers simply to the bringing of formal charges in the House and Senate against an elected officer.

Constitutionally, a majority vote of the House of Representatives, where Al Green serves from the 9th District in Texas, is required to bring the charges which are then to be tried before the Senate (Article I, Section 3, Clause 6). Conviction of these charges demands a two-thirds Senatorial vote.

What is important here, however, is that the Framers placed the particular grounds of impeachment in the Constitution itself—Article II, Section 4. “…civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

These grounds were intentionally specified in order to prevent impeachment from becoming a tool by which political opponents might remove others from office. As noted in The Heritage Foundation, “…it is agreed by virtually all that the impeachment remedy was to be used in only the most extreme situations, …”

Democrats Have Become Revcom

Nothing demonstrates how radical leftist the Democrats have become than the promise of impeachment proceedings by Al Green. What specific charges does he mention? All political socialistic lefty nonsense. “An inciter of racism, bigotry, hatred, xenophobia … blah blah blah.” Trump is a hater! And this from a man who has a law degree from Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, TX.

This is precisely what the founders were trying to prevent—impeachment becoming a political tool. A logical outcome this to the complete trashing of our Constitutional system fostered by the likes of Green.

Al Green is acting more like a college child throwing temper tantrums and threatening to shut down free speech because he does not like the speaker. He is trying to stir up the street masses by his incendiary rhetoric, ala The Revolutionary Communist Party. Each and every charge he levels against Trump is totally in the eye of the beholder. No dereliction of duty against Trump, and certainly no impeachable offenses measuring up to “treason, bribery, or high crimes.”

Why America is Losing

But Al Green’s unfounded rants are the reason Republicans continue to lose the ground of freedom even though they remain in the majority in Congress and occupy the White House.

During the tenure of Barack Obama a good case could be made that he committed impeachable offenses—many of them. He opened his administration with illegal executive orders to the Department of Justice that they not enforce the law of the land regarding the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Close on the heels of that was the lawless gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious, designed to remove our 2d Amendment rights in this nation. When Congress demanded documents related thereto, Obama said “no.” End of story. Lawless and unbridled.

The Iran Nuke Deal is an impeachable offense because Obama negotiated a secret “treaty.” Treaties are authorized only to Congress, but Obama thumbed his nose at the rule of law.  Hillary’s private illegal email server was well-known by the Obama White House, yet neither of these officials have been called to official account for this impeachable offense.

Then we have Obama’s DOJ actually being caught spying on AP reporters while Obama’s IRS was illegally targeting conservative groups. And who can forget Benghazi-gate of 2012 and the blatant bold lies issuing from the White House itself from Obama’s spokeswoman Susan Rice?

After this comes the infamous lie supporting ObamaCare: “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” This is followed by the Illegal-Alien Amnesty that President Obama issued by executive order—a completely illegal and unconstitutional move. There are recess-appointments, the appointment of czars, the line-item veto on Congressional laws sitting on his desk—and more.

Yet in all of this the Republicans maintained a weak-spined, weak-kneed, milquetoast position, refusing to bring formal charges against a communist rogue president who was destroying our very constitutional system. Guardians of the Republic they were not.

Instead, they were concerned that the American public would find them unfavorable. To add insult to injury, the Republicans refused to defund any of Obama’s unconstitutional programs such as ObamaCare. Budget after budget was passed in which they funded every thing the Democrats wished.

But let a Republican occupy the White House and the Democrats are unashamed to go to the very extreme. Democrats are always ready to fight—even for socialist revolution. Faint-hearted Republicans is why America has moved so very far left.

Tom DeWeese: How the Media Twists Facts To Enforce its Propaganda Bias

How the Media Twists Facts To Enforce its Propaganda Bias- 

“There has always been some kind of force loose in the world seeking domination over others.

by Tom DeWeese

It’s become obvious that our fight against Agenda 21/2030 is beginning to have an affect when a reporter writes not one, but two attack articles about the same event. That’s what happened as a result of my recent talk in Rexburg, Idaho.

In mid-October I traveled to three cities in Idaho (including Rexburg) and to Spokane, Washington, speaking about Agenda 21 and the growing assault on private property and individual choice. Below is one of two reports on the Rexburg event, as reported by reporter Bryan Clark. I’ve inserted my remarks in the body of his article to show what I actually said in contrast to his innuendos and lack of facts.

Conspiracist warns of plot for global domination

Posted: October 19, 2017 5:31 p.m.

By BRYAN CLARK, Post Register

His original article is in blue

REXBURG — Most people don’t think concentration camps and bike paths have much in common, but Tom DeWeese sees a connection. He sees lots of connections. Everywhere.

Of course, I never mentioned concentration camps in my talk. For that matter I didn’t mention FEMA camps or chemtrails either.

DeWeese is one of the nation’s most prominent exponents of the Agenda 21 conspiracy theory, which has gained increasing traction among Idaho’s far right, being recently invoked in the debate over proposed wildlife overpasses near Island Park.

Of course, using terms like “conspiracy theory” and “far right” are a direct attempt to bias the reader from the start. It’s a common tactic in political advocacy, but has no place in legitimate journalism. In truth, I actually spent considerable time at the beginning of my talk producing official government documents showing that specific government programs clearly claimed to be implementation of Agenda 21. Each of these documents used the exact same description for the purpose of Agenda 21 as a “comprehensive blueprint” with the intention of reorganizing human society.

Here are my exact words as I held up each document:

In 1994, the American Planning Association (one of the largest and most respected planning groups in the nation) put out a newsletter calling Agenda 21 a Comprehensive Blueprint for Sustainable Development that was adopted at the recent UNCED conference in Rio de Janeiro (the Earth Summit).

In 1997 the United States issued a 70-page report to the United Nations Department for Policy Coordination and Sustainable Development, detailing the progress the US was making to implement Agenda 21. The second chapter of that report is titled “International cooperation to accelerate sustainable development in developing countries and related domestic policies.”

In 1998, the Federal Register issued a report on the EPA’s Challenge Grant Program. That report says, “The EPA’s Challenge Grant Program is also implementation of Agenda 21.”

In 2011, the EPA issued a revised report entitled “History of Sustainability.” It details how EPA policy on Sustainability was developed. The Fifth item on that report is Agenda 21, calling it a “comprehensive process of planning and action to attain sustainability.”

And on and on it went, about Agenda 21. The blueprint. The plan. The consensus. The direction for changing how people live. Here was the plan for the 21st Century!

Of course, my point in bringing out these official documents was to show their excitement, support, and determination to impose this “plan to reorganize human society” domestically and worldwide. Again – that was the entire point of my presentation.

DeWeese, who bills himself as an expert on property rights (though he claims only a degree in journalism), gave an extended lecture on his theory Wednesday night at the Romance Theater in Rexburg. The event was put on by the John Birch Society and local activists. Conservative activist Maria Nate emceed the proceedings, and several government officials, including state Rep. Ron Nate and Rexburg Mayor Jerry Merrill, were in attendance.

First, I do not have a degree in journalism and never claimed to. I simply worked for two small newspapers in my younger days. Second, I have been involved in the property rights issued for over thirty years. My organization has been invited to testify before Congressional committees on the subject several times. I have met with legislators in several states, including Maine, Michigan and Virginia. I regularly work directly with elected officials at many levels, helping them to craft property rights legislation. I was even invited to debate the UN issue before a 200-year-old debating society at England’s Cambridge University. In fact, that night in Cambridge I debated the former UK Ambassador to the UN, the head of the UN’s Millennium Project, along with a member of the British Parliament. Those people apparently thought I was an expert or they wouldn’t have gone to the expense of flying me to England.

It’s in things such as zoning, bike paths and conservation easements that DeWeese sees the advent of global totalitarianism. DeWeese invoked Hitler and Stalin, Mussolini and Napoleon, saying this time things would be much worse. He warned that unspecified “secret societies” sought to organize the entire world under a single “diabolical plan,” which he variously characterized as communist and fascist.

I only “invoked” Hitler, Stalin and Napoleon in saying there have always been those who have sought to rule the world. In fact, here’s what I actually said:

“There has always been some kind of force loose in the world seeking domination over others.

Usually it’s a drive for power for power’s sake. Conquer other tribes, kingdoms or nations. Grab their resources. Enslave their people. Build wealth and power. Rule the World!

Kings saw it as their duty. Megalomaniacs like Napoleon, Hitler, and Stalin lusted for the control and power to satisfy their hatred, mistrust, and insecurities. Secret societies have plotted global control for their causes, however demented it might be.”

I was pointing out that these forces used war and violence to try to take over the world.

Then I said: “However, what if such power-mongers could find a way to keep their aggression under wraps, out of sight from those they intend to conquer – until it was too late?

Better yet, what if they could actually get their targeted victims to help them achieve that goal to control them? No armies in the field. No shots fired. Instead, they quietly pull in the Trojan Horse and celebrate its arrival.

What if there was a way to organize the world under a single unifying plan, accepted by nearly everyone as fact and necessary?

Everyone would be convinced that to oppose such a plan would be a direct threat to humanity. Acceptance of that plan would see every nation voluntarily surrendering its independence and sovereignty — to the aggressors. They would even raise money to pay for the aggressor’s system of control.

These new rulers would issue exact orders to be followed by all, gaining more and more power with each dictate. People would voluntarily forget their history, reject their culture, and never ask questions about it. Was it not always so, they would later ask?

What could be such a threat, so powerful that the entire world would lie down to accept such global servitude?  How about the threat of Environmental Armageddon? Who could be opposed to saving the planet?

“There is such a plan for world domination,” DeWeese said, his voice rising in volume and urgency as he went on. “It is rapidly taking over with a pace and scope that no force or power ever experienced in history. Hitler would be so envious watching what is being done, so powerful and controlling is this force.” Continue Reading

Treason in the White House

Treason in the White HouseThe real key in all of this will be the Republican Congress.

by Bill Lockwood

Collusion with a foreign hostile government. Presidential campaign coffers filled with foreign cash in return for government favors such as high level sensitive assignments awarded to agents of foreign powers. Military technology traded for illicit cash laundered through various entities. Subpoena’s from Congress ignored by the Justice Department. Pretty much the textbook example of the only crime specifically defined in the Constitution—treason.

But this is not the Trump White House. It is the former Bill Clinton Administration. In order to grasp and maintain power the Clintons granted to The People’s Republic of China access to political and military secrets in exchange for cash. It is a similar scenario that has been replayed by Hillary Clinton with Russia during the 2016 campaign.

As was the case with husband Bill, Hillary’s seditious activity is aided and abetted by the Main Stream Media. Distraction is the name of the game. In the case of Bill, it was Monica Lewinsky. In the case of Hillary, it is the Paul J. Manafort and Richard Gates indictment issued this week by Special Counsel Stephen S. Mueller III.

In common to both Bill and Hillary’s cases a complicit establishment media cartel is aided by spineless Republicans on Capitol Hill whose only apparent recourse is wringing of the hands while the liberal movers and shakers of our society aggressively move their agenda toward totalitarian control.

Days before the House began the impeachment debate of Bill Clinton, Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote to then House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-TX) urging Congress to examine Chinagate and the manner in which Bill Clinton committed a “betrayal of our national security.” Moorer pointed out that the president had “allowed these men whose hands are stained with the blood of martyrs to freedom [Tiananmen Square massacre in which 4,000 to 6,000 Chinese freedom lovers were slaughtered] into the highest reaches of our military defenses, and made available to them significant portions of our advanced military technology.”

Charles LaBella, the head of the Justice Department’s campaign finance task force during Clinton’s presidency, also sent a memo to Clinton’s Attorney General Janet Reno urging the appointment of an independent counsel to investigate fundraising activities of the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign. Then FBI director Louis Freeh made the same recommendation to Reno in a memo of his own. AG Janet Reno ignored these requests.

She also ignored official subpoena’s sent by Congress to hand over these memo’s as a part of the Chinagate investigation. Although Reno was bound by law to comply, it was ‘nothing doing’ on her part. A faint-hearted Republican Congress simply complained at Clinton’s lawlessness. Bill Clinton’s treason remains unpunished.

Hillary’s Treason

Unpunished crime encourages more. Now it’s Hillary’s turn. As noted by Constitution.com “The Real Russia Conspiracy is That Hillary and the Democrat Party Are the Real Russia Colluders.” “After months of lies form the left that a fake dossier contained evidence between President Donald Trump and the Russians, now we find out that the whole ‘report’ was a false flag effort invented by an outfit bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee to destroy Trump’s campaign for president.”

It has also been discovered that “the heart of the Russia/Clinton collusion was a deal to allow the Russian company Uranium One to buy a significant part of America’s uranium supply.”

Like a series of bombs last week came revelation after revelation of Hillary’s Russian Conspiracy—Russiagate—while she served as Secretary of State for Barack Obama.  As reported by Matthew Vadum, senior vice president at the investigative think tank Capital Research Center, “The Podesta Group [connected with Hillary Clinton] has lobbied for Uranium One, the Canadian-based energy company that has come under scrutiny …In 2010, the Obama Administration allowed Uranium One to be sold to Russian energy company Rasotum, giving the company control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, despite an ongoing FBI investigation into a Rosatum subsidiary involved in a racketeering scheme. The Podesta Group received $180,000 from Uranium One over several years between 2012 and 2015 …”

Hillary approved this sale and husband Bill received a cool $500,000 for a single speech from Russia in return. Chinagate-Russiagate. All eyes are turning once more to the Clinton’s.

Now Robert S. Mueller III, the Special Counsel appointed to investigate possible Russia connections with the Trump campaign, is on the hot seat to turn attention away from Hillary—in a Lewinsky-style move. In matters that are completely unrelated to the Trump campaign he was assigned to investigate, Mueller issued indictments against Paul J. Manafort, Jr. and Richard W. Gates III. The charges? Evading taxes on millions of dollars over a period of years among others.

Manafort managed the Trump campaign from June to August 2016. He was replaced by Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon. But the real Mueller goal here is a smokescreen to divert attention from criminal activities that have obviously occurred in the Clinton-Obama camp.

Mueller should have been fired by President Trump long ago. Having served under Marxist Obama his interest now is not in upholding the truth or the law, but providing protective cover for the past administration while also appeasing the radical lawless Democratic Party on the Left.

The real key in all of this will be the Republican Congress. Will they grow a backbone enough to investigate the real Russia Collusion story involving Bill and Hillary Clinton, and possibly Barack Obama? Or, like the days of the Clinton Administration of yesteryear, will the Republicans completely capitulate? Radical forces are after our president. It is past time for Republicans to stand for the rule of law while protecting the CEO of our nation.

Collectivism, Individualism & Freedom

Collectivism, Individualism & Freedom “…persons are considered to be only cogs in a collectivist wheel.

by Bill Lockwood

ObamaCare specifically, but collectivist socialism generally, is not only unconstitutional in America, but immoral. This does not mean that we have not or do not practice socialism via the redistribution of wealth. America has become a leading fascist or socialist nation. The Affordable Care Act is a perfect illustration. But it is at root level, immoral, and goes a long way in explaining why our streets are exploding with violence.

Think about a few concepts, then an illustration.

Consider first, individualism. As a political philosophy, America is to be a nation in which individuals, not the collective, is emphasized. Translated, this means that it is “individual freedom” which is stressed in our Constitution and other founding documents. As a concept it is rooted squarely in biblical teaching whereby “individuals” are held accountable before God—not families or societies.

For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God, for it is written, ‘As I live, says the Lord, to me, every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then each one of us shall give account of himself to God” (Rom. 14:11,12).

Connected with this is the worth of each individual. We are crafted by God “in his image” (Gen. 1:27). “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).

The biblical doctrine of individualism is the dominant feature of western civilization precisely because our society is founded upon God-given rights, per the Declaration of Independence. This means that the interests of individuals and the rights of persons are held paramount. This is where morality lies.

Turn attention to its opposite: collectivism.

Collectivism is any species of political and economic system in which the government, or people, as a group, own land, factories, and other means of production. It flows from philosophy where de-emphasis is upon individuals and “classes” or “groups” of society are dominant. Various species of this include socialism, communism, and fascism.

The key element here, however, is that the moral worth of the individual is counted as very little and persons are considered to be only cogs in a collectivist wheel. The “greater good” of society rules. In practice this means that whatever group or powerful politician needs to sustain his office-holding is favored. Collectivism or statism is a moral stance that removes worth of the individual. This is how America has become not only immoral but that immorality is actually encoded into our system.

I illustrate it with the story of one of my friends, named Carl.

The Story of Carl

Carl is a great Christian friend. He is self-employed as a housing contractor, builder, welder, and pretty much a doer-of-everything kind of guy. Hard working by nature, his integrity is outstanding, laboring many over-hours to accomplish his tasks.

Carl comes from the old-time school, as thousands of other Texans, where one’s word is your bond. If he tells you he will do a certain project; it will be done—under budget. It is not that Carl is slower than corporate executives that he has a blue-collar job, but because he loves to work with his hands in the great outdoors. He needs no overseer because he is conscientious about his work.

Frugal by nature, my friend saves his money. When traveling, for example, he sleeps on the side of the road in a tent to avoid paying hotel costs. A self-made man that could survive if lost on the prairie. When his truck breaks down, he fixes it; when his roof needs replacing, he does the work; when the fields need mowing, he does them.

He now has a wife and daughter. Providing for his family in a God-ordered manner is his joy. Part of this provision involves health insurance—which cost him—prior to the arrival of Barack Obama on the scene, about $300 per month. This included the entire family. Enter ObamaCare. Carl’s insurance premiums sky-rocketed to over $1000 per month.

We must take from” the workers, said Obama, and distribute to those who are not as “fortunate” as Carl. Carl was forced to drop his own insurance in order to purchase it for his wife and child. So now, he himself is without.

He continues to work just as hard as ever, laboring as a private contractor for different people. But no health insurance for himself—it is too expensive. Where is Carl’s money going?

One can witness it in a thousand neighborhoods. Free health care clinics; what used to be called Section 8 housing; free education to many children who could not care less if they were there; free medical care including costs of having children for unwed mothers; babysitting, and medical care for the children. Then, to sweeten the pot, there is the Earned Income Credit for teenagers and others who bounce around through society on a continual marijuana high and who wait for that big EIC check at the first of the year so they might purchase another car, or spend it at the Casino.

The real workers of America, such as Carl, are not the Forgotten Men of America, they are The Exploited Men. This system cannot continue; nor should it.

God, Not Gun Control

God, Not Gun Control “Is there no virtue among us?

by Bill Lockwood

The liberal secular world consistently misses the prime causes of our cultural disarray. Once again this lack of understanding is displayed in the aftermath of the Stephen Paddock mass shooting in Las Vegas, NV. Democrat leaders around the country did not let the blood dry from that massacre before they were calling for more fixes from Washington, D.C. They refuse the real issue.

Leading in this willful ignorance is Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut. “The reason we don’t have gun safety measures in the United States today is because of the [National Rifle Association]. And we will defeat them.” That which blocks Sen. Murphy is not the NRA, but the 2d Amendment of the Constitution itself. Will you defeat it, Sen. Murphy?

Greatly exaggerating his power he continued: “We have it in our power to curb gun violence and save lives. It is that simple. Congress is complicit each day it fails to act.” He added that gun violence is a “uniquely American problem.”

Curtailing citizen gun ownership has always been on the Democrat/Socialist agenda. This is the reason that before investigations are even conducted into motives or causes they fly to assault the 2d Amendment.

Erasing God

To put a more accurate point on the liberal agenda, gun violence is not a uniquely “American” problem, but a uniquely modern American problem. Early America experienced no such acts of horrific senseless violence. Citizens were not mowing each other down in the town squares. Yet, from the 17th century through the colonial period not only did every male member of the community own a firearm, but they were expected to be a part of the regular militia!

Laws in Virginia in 1623 forbade its colonists to travel unless they were armed. In 1631 the same colony required the citizens to engage in target practice on Sunday and “to bring their pieces to church.” Target practice would be after Sunday dinner. In 1673 the laws of Virginia provided that a citizen who claimed he was too poor to purchase a firearm would have one purchased for him by the government.

In Massachusetts, the first session of the legislature ordered not only freemen, but also indentured servants to own firearms and imposed a fine upon those who were not armed. Examples from other colonies could be added (W. Cleon Skousen, The Making of America, 696).

What a difference two centuries make! But be careful to note that the difference is not between America and other nations, as Democrats are wanton to do; but between modern America and our historical roots. What exactly has changed?

Our nation has spent the better part of a century eliminating God from the public square, the classroom, and public discourse. Entertainment has virtually mocked and blasphemed God. Families are dysfunctional and the number of fatherless homes has dramatically increased since the 1960’s. Humanistic evolution and its valueless world order has replaced the Bible and we today are eating the fruit of those choices. In the wake of family and societal breakdown an increasing number of sociopaths and psychopaths wander our secular society. A predictable result.

Benjamin Franklin wrote, “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.” Gordon Wood, in The Creation of the American Republic, 1776-1787, stated, “The eighteenth century mind was thoroughly convinced that a popularly based government ‘cannot be supported without virtue.’”

James Madison added,

Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks, no form of government, can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical [fantasy] idea.

And George Washington, the Father of our Country, warned us,

And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education … reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

Again, in his Farewell Address Washington advised that our freedom depends upon two “indispensable supports”—religion and morality. He, of course, referred to the Christian religion.

Until God is once again acknowledged by our culture-including the public school classroom– no amount of laws, no number of legislative fixes will make a people safe whose manners have become immoral, corrupt and vicious.

Anti-Americanism: The Fruit of Socialism

Anti-Americanism: The Fruit of SocialismEach and every one of those NFL players has most likely benefitted from a taxpayer subsidized assistance in one form or another…

by Bill Lockwood

Anti-American sentiment continues to grow exponentially in America. It most recently started in the NFL with Colin Kaepernick, who complained of “racial injustice” in America and refused to honor the National Anthem by taking a knee during its playing. Coming to Kaepernick’s defense was then-President Obama, who falsely complained of racial injustices, from the Ferguson, MO Michael Brown debacle to Freddie Gray’s death in Baltimore, MD. Fortunately, President Trump takes a different stance than did Obama. Too late. The Un-American movement has now taken wings to fly, with the NFL leading the way.

It should be noted that this is not a First Amendment issue. As columnist Selwyn Duke correctly noted, “Private Entities such as NFL teams can and do enforce codes of conduct.” The NFL is, as all liberal causes are, hopelessly lost in hypocrisy.

As Politistick pointed out, the NFL forced Robert Griffin III to turn his “Know Jesus, Know Peace” t-shirt inside out because it violated their “code of conduct” regarding apparel. When the Dallas Cowboys wanted to honor police that were gunned down by a Marxist terrorist, they were disallowed by the NFL. But Kaepernick was allowed by the NFL to wear a Communist Castro-loving t-shirt and socks depicting police as pigs. Is this the USA or the USSR, NFL?, Politistick asked.

The Real Issue

The real problem, however, is socialism. America began down the totalitarian pathway during Franklin Roosevelt’s tenure. Socialism is normally considered to be a “political philosophy” but in reality is more of a “religious” concept. As Vergilius Ferm (Encyclopedia of Religion) explains,

American socialism is heir to the tradition of materialism and atheism. It relies on the growth of automatic perfection, not indeed by virtue of the given natural faculties of man, but as the product of causally inevitable economic changes. The result is parallel to that of the liberal utopia, a self-contained world of man, individualistic here, collectivist there, and redeemed from evil, once and for all, by the economic process, much as this requires men conscious of their opportunity. This is an overtly anti-Christian doctrine.”

Oscar Jaszi, the famed Hungarian social scientist and politician, noted that socialists insist that the “immorality of the established order is traceable NOT to the …nature of man, but to ‘corrupt institutions.’”  Therefore, socialism always seeks to transform the institutions of society because they are somehow “unjust.”

Because our government, led by socialist-leaning leaders since the 1930’s, declares that things are “not fair” for some, it takes in hand to “redistribute” monies and benefits. Socialism is thus born which begins by government theft of the working person to re-distribute to those deemed to be “in need.” This is the real injustice.

The National Football League

Back to the NFL. Most of the millionaire players in the NFL that are protesting are black. So what are “systemic” injustices that these players are protesting?

Is it the free healthcare which government forces others to finance? In almost every minority community there are free clinics funded by the American taxpayer.

Might they be protesting the SNAP Program (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), formerly known as Food Stamps? By this program the U.S. Department of Agriculture forcibly re-distributes money from the middle class for the purpose of assisting the low-income to purchase food. These benefits cost $70 billion in fiscal 2016.

According to the Pew Research Center blacks are about twice as likely as whites to have used this benefit during their lives (31% v. 15%). Perhaps the NFL players are protesting this “systemic” injustice?

Might these players be protesting Government Assisted Public Housing, formerly known as “Section 8”? According to the government HUD website (huduser.gov),

Public housing serves black households at a rate substantially greater than their share of the renter population. Forty-eight percent of public housing households are black compared to only 19 percent of all renter households. Taking income into account does not alter this conclusion, since only 30 percent of households with incomes low enough to qualify for public housing are black.

Most likely every one of the NFL players protesting were educated in public schools. That means that the American taxpayer funded their entire education, from pre-school through High School. Included for many students is the “free and reduced” lunch program that is also funded by the local taxpayers. Colleges routinely grant huge scholarships to athletes who play on their football teams. These are funded by donors to the college as well as, once again, taxpayer money.

Perhaps the NFL protestors are angry about the quota system that remains in place for jobs and universities and graduate admissions because it is tilted in favor of minorities? A 2015 complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights alleges that for Asian-American students to gain admission into elite universities they have to have SAT scores 140 points higher than white students, 270 points higher than Hispanic students and 450 points higher than African-American students.

Just exactly which “racially unjust” program above is it that these players are protesting?

In 2013 it was reported that a new study out of George Washington University School of Public Health found that the number of births in the U.S. covered by Medicaid has reached nearly fifty percent as of 2010. An estimated 63 million Americans were enrolled in Medicaid benefits in that year as federal and state budgets were spending close to $400 billion on the program each year. At the same time as middle-class taxpayers are being robbed to subsidize this program the streets are spilling over with violence and mayhem.

This only illustrates the primary point. In the name of assisting those in need, government welfare (aka theft and redistribution) actually breeds enormous amounts of ingratitude. This is a monstrous mentality that supposes everyone owes you something accompanied by an insatiable appetite to find an increasing number of “wrongs.”

Each and every one of those NFL players has most likely benefitted from a taxpayer subsidized assistance in one form or another sometime in their lives. A socialized people always bites the hand that feeds them; in this case “taking a knee” to spit on the American flag.

To President Trump: The United Nations was Designed to Destroy Freedom

To President Trump: The United Nations was Designed to Destroy Freedom “Americans have been slowly indoctrinated toward Global Government…

by Bill Lockwood

President Trump’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week had much to commend it. Emphasizing national sovereignty and independence, he also rightly criticized the unfair cost burden to the United States. The American taxpayer shoulders 22 percent of the entire UN budget, more than double the next leading contributor, Japan. Yet, in spite of Trump’s defense of “national sovereignty” he praised the United Nations by urging that the world body live up to its “potential” by continuing to provide a world “forum” for peace which he called its “true vision.”  In these remarks, however, he is mistaken, for the United Nations is flawed by design.

Why is it that almost every American leader since Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt have worked toward the lessening of our sovereignty and towards a World Government, working to erode it “piece by piece” in the words of more than one global leader?

For example, Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s national security advisor, a longtime CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) member, and a founder of David Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission, explained to world leaders at the 1995 State of the World Forum:

We cannot leap into world government in one quick step. [It] requires a process of gradually expanding the range of democratic cooperation as well as the range of personal and national security, a widening, step by step, stone by stone, [of] existing relatively narrow zones of stability in the world of security and cooperation. In brief, the precondition for eventual globalization — genuine globalization — is progressive regionalization, because thereby we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units.

Almost the same words were used by Richard N. Gardner (CFR) in his April 1974 essay in Foreign Affairs, entitled “The Hard Road to World Order.”

Gardner opined that a “case-by-case approach can produce some remarkable concessions of ‘sovereignty’ that could not be achieved on an across-the-board basis.” Rather than pursuing “instant world government,” Gardner explained to the world that “the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down”—by means of “and end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece.…”

Former President Bush, Sr. offered this about the original vision of the UN: “We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and for the future generations a new world order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the UN’s founders.”

His son, President George W. Bush signed the Declaration of Quebec in 2001 in which he gave “commitment to hemispheric integration and nation and collective responsibility for improving the economic well-being and security of our people.” By “our people” Bush meant people of the Western Hemisphere, not the people of the United States. He pledged that the United States will build a hemispheric family on the basis of a more just and democratic international order, such as the world is witnessing in the EU and now the African Union (AU).

These statements are not unlike former UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali’s “The time for absolute and exclusive sovereignty … has passed.” Or, like former President Obama’s speech to the UN in which he urged nations to surrender some of its sovereignty.

Again, the UN’s goals of world government by gradually eroding United States sovereignty could not be plainer than David Rockefeller’s (founder of the CFR) praise to the major media in 1991 for its complicity in this stealth design.

We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years …it would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national determination practiced in past centuries.

According to these major players, as well as dozens of others who have been coming out of the closet as Americans have been slowly indoctrinated toward Global Government, what is now occurring via the UN has been planned from its inception. This means that UN programs, including global wealth distribution, government control of production, government control of consumption (Sustainable Development), international taxes, world currency, globalized education for children, family planning, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), which already siphons wealth of hard-working taxpayers in America–are all by design.

So, who is right on this? President Trump, who calls upon the UN to live up to its “true vision” which emphasizes national sovereignty; or, the long list of globalists who praise the UN for its gradual implementation of eroding national sovereignty? Obviously, not Trump.

Almost 15 years ago, Michael Hirsch wrote a piece in Newsweek in which he frankly confessed that transforming America into a global policeman and moving toward Global Government is not accidental. Entitled Death of a Founding Myth, he stated,

While the isolationists … tempted millions with their siren’s appeal to nativism—the internationalists were always hard at work in quiet places making plans for a more perfect global community. In the end the internationalists have always dominated national policy. Even so, they haven’t bragged about their globe-building for fear of reawakening the other half of the American psyche, our berserker nativism. And so they have always done it in the most out-of-the-way places and with little ado.

In December 1917 the Inquiry, a group of eager reformers who included a young Walter Lippmann, secretly met in New York to draw up Wilson’s Fourteen Points. In 1941, FDR concocted the Atlantic Charter in the mists off Newfoundland. The dense woods of New Hampshire gave birth to the Bretton Woods institutions—the IMF and the World Bank—in 1944.

And a year later the United Nations came to life at the secluded Georgetown estate of Dumbarton Oaks….So what emerged took us more or less by surprise. We had built a global order without quite realizing it, bit by bit, era by era, with our usual schizoid approach: alternating engagement and withdrawal….Like it or not—and clearly large numbers of Americans still don’t—we Americans are now part of an organic whole with the world that George Washington wanted to keep distant.

Americans have been stealthily and semi-secretly maneuvered into globalism. Why this has occurred is seen in simply glancing at some of the original founders of the UN. The first secretary-general of the UN was America’s own Alger Hiss, later convicted in court of being a Soviet spy.

Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin played a key role in it early years, as did our own John Foster Dulles, who wrote the following in 1950: “The United Nations represents not the final stage in the development of the world order, but only a primitive stage. Therefore, its primary task is to create the conditions which will make possible a more highly developed organization.”

Later, Dulles had this to say, “I have never seen any proposal made for collective security with teeth in it, or for world government or for world federation, which could not be carried out by either the United Nations or under the United Nations Charter.”

Like most programs to control free people by socialistic programs, the UN is following the totalitarian path laid out by its founders. It is on track. President Trump needs to realize that the UN is indeed living up to its potential. Global Government. This is why national “sovereignty” and “independence” of nations, particularly America, is anathema to the world body. It is all about transferring the wealth of America to socialist nations. It also explains why the major media globalist elites spin out of control at the mention of such concepts by Trump.

If America is to survive we must get out of the United Nations and the United Nations must get out of the United States. There is currently legislation in Congress called the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017 (H.R. 193), which proposes to do exactly that. It is sponsored by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL). Americans need demand its Congressional leaders support it.

Jesse Lee Peterson: HERE’S THE ANTIDOTE TO ST. LOUIS RIOTS AND RAGE

HERE’S THE ANTIDOTE TO ST. LOUIS RIOTS AND RAGE- Jesse Lee Peterson exposes ‘real enemy’ of black Americans

by Jesse Lee Peterson

The more you give in to angry people, the worse they get. Case in point: black protesters in St. Louis, Missouri. Violent Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with police after ex-St. Louis cop Jason Stockley was acquitted of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of drug dealer Anthony Lamar-Smith.

Smith was attempting to flee from police when he slammed his vehicle into a police cruiser and took off, causing a dangerous high-speed chase. Stockley, who is white, claimed he shot the suspect, who is black, in self-defense because he thought Smith was reaching for a gun.

According to St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson, the prosecutors failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Officer Stockley did not act in self-defense. Smith was out on parole for convictions of drug distribution, theft and illegal gun possession at the time of the shooting.

But facts don’t matter to angry blacks. The acquittal of Stockley gave Black Lives Matter license to riot and assault police. What began as a protest march erupted with a wild mob tearing through downtown St. Louis and through the city’s affluent areas. Protesters said they wanted whites to feel the pain.

Protesters burned American flags, damaged police cruisers and destroyed businesses. At least 10 officers were assaulted with bricks and bottles; 23 suspects were arrested. The violence caused local businesses to cancel major venues. Protesters also temporarily shut down a major mall in St. Louis. They chanted, “You kill one of us, we kill your economy,” and they carried Black Lives Matters signs.

St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson, a liberal Democrat, said in a statement that she is “appalled” by what happened to Smith and she is “sobered by this outcome.” She wrote, “I will continue my work to create a more equitable community.”

Her attempt to pacify the mob failed. Late in the evening, approximately 1,000 protesters descended on the mayor’s home, breaking windows and splattering red paint on it. Police eventually used tear gas to disperse the mob.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

The head of the St. Louis City NAACP, Adolphus M. Pruitt, asked President Trump and the Justice Department to immediately review Stockley’s acquittal. The NAACP said the community has lost faith in local authorities to fairly handle such cases.

Republican Gov. Eric Greitens was highly critical during his 2016 campaign of how former liberal Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon allowed the Ferguson protests to devolve into full-on riots after Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot 18-year-old thug Michael Brown in self-defense.

In advance of the Stockley acquittal, Gov. Greitens reportedly met with Anthony Lamar-Smith’s fiancée, black state lawmakers, black St. Louis ministers and law enforcement in the hopes of projecting a message that peaceful protest would be tolerated but violence wouldn’t. Greitens, a decorated former Navy SEAL, wisely put the National Guard on standby, and some troops were deployed to guard “critical infrastructure.”

Even though the Republican governor was pro-active in reaching out to black leaders, they did nothing to help calm the situation. Why? Because these people don’t want peace. They identify more with Black Lives Matter than they do with decent whites and police. They don’t want a solution; they want revenge against whites.

The NAACP and so-called black “leaders” have inflamed racial tensions for years by falsely screaming “racism” any time a white officer is involved in the shooting of a black suspect. They never tell the truth about dangerous criminals like Anthony Lamar-Smith, Michael Brown, and other black thugs who caused their own deaths. They get power and wealth by promoting racial division, and they will never hold the thugs accountable.

Meanwhile, there’s a major debate on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA – Obama’s back-door plan to give 900,000 “Dreamers” (illegal aliens) amnesty. The so-called “Dreamers” are demanding amnesty now. If Republicans give in, amnesty will have a devastating impact on black employment, schools and on their quality of life. Yet the NAACP, Urban League and the Congressional Black Caucus support amnesty! With the exception of a few black conservatives, no one in the black community is sounding the alarm about this looming catastrophe.

Blacks are oblivious; they’re busy defending spoiled and privileged SJW idiots Colin Kaepernick and ESPN commentator Jemele Hill.

Liberal politicians are welcoming illegal aliens and fighting President Trump’s effort to secure the border and deport them. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti want “sanctuary cities” to protect illegals regardless of their criminal history while ignoring their black constituents. The public schools in Chicago are war zones. Drugs and crime are out of control, and there are no black men with courage to stop the destruction.

As a result, blacks are fleeing Chicago and Los Angeles in droves. New Census data show Chicago’s Hispanic population surged by 17,000 in a one-year period, making Hispanics the second-largest ethnic group in the city. Meanwhile, the black population is shrinking, with 42,000 moving out due to violence and lack of jobs.

The rage in the black community is palpable, but it’s misdirected. Instead of blaming cops, whites and President Trump, blacks need to get their act together and drop their rage, which is blinding them from seeing the real enemy and how Democrats are exploiting them.

DACA: Blinding the Eyes of Religious Leaders

DACA: Blinding the Eyes of Religious LeadersThe DACA program was unilaterally and unconstitutionally announced by President Obama in the summer of 2012…

by Bill Lockwood

President Trump’s efforts to end Obama’s lawless DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is a perfect illustration how the unconstitutional concept of welfare blinds the eyes of the people. In this case it is the religious leaders of America that are blinded, rendering them incapable of understanding real compassion. As Isaiah of old put it, “His watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they cannot bark [in warning]; they lie around and dream, they love to sleep” (56:10).

According to The Washington Post “Christian leaders” react to Trump’s decision to end DACA calling it “reprehensible” and “unconscionable.” This includes the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the United Methodist Church, as well as many evangelical leaders, who have written both Congress and the White House insisting that the program remain.

The DACA program was unilaterally and unconstitutionally announced by President Obama in the summer of 2012 as his “response” to the “long failure” [read, “refusal”] of Congress to pass the “Dream Act” (Empire Justice Center). The “Dream Act” “would have provided a path to permanent resident status for non-citizens who are not lawfully here and came to the country as children.” These are the so-called “dreamers.”

Per the Empire Justice Center, which concerns the state of New York, central to DACA are public welfare benefits, including Medicaid, Family Health Plus, the Family Planning Program and overt cash assistance through the Safety Net program. Just here—at public welfare—lies the blinding agent.

Exhibit A is The United Methodist Church which rebuked Trump’s efforts in these words: “…to rescind these protections, [is] not only unconscionable, but contrary to moral work and witness.” Exhibit B is the Evangelical Lutheran Church which prayed that DACA immigrants will not “suffer undue repercussions due to the end of this program.” Moral Work? Let us see.

What is government welfare? Generally speaking, welfare is any government program that provides financial support or benefits for citizens or residents. Included in this is public education, health care, housing, food, farm subsidies, transportation, etc. The idea behind it is that government has a moral obligation to support those in need. This concept began in earnest during FDR’s New Deal Era. It was unknown during the Founding Era.

But government has no money or wealth of its own. The only “public benefits” which the government can distribute to any individual or group are those confiscated from other citizens. This is true whether it is direct taxation or inflation via the Federal Reserve. By any biblical definition or moral standard this is actually theft and redistribution of someone else’s earnings–not charity or compassion. To call this a “moral” work, as did the United Methodist Church, turns the basic biblical premise “thou shalt not steal” on its head.

The modern welfare-state philosophy, which is the cornerstone of liberal thinking, has not benefitted America. In fact, it promises to destroy it. Bayard Rustin (1912-1987), a socialist civil rights leader who later turned neo-conservative, stated it this way: The welfare-state philosophy inherent in the war on poverty is “an immoral bag of tricks” which amount to a new form of slavery. He had a clearer vision of the nature of welfare programs than do modern church leaders.

This brings us to our legislators. How charitable are they? Democrats tend to be less so, if the Obama’s and Biden’s of the world are any indicator. Their charitable giving was less than 5%. “Compassionate conservatives” like George Bush perhaps move that percentage up a few points. However—give them my checkbook and allow them to draft money out of my account—and their “charity” skyrockets. I, too, could be very magnanimous in my giving if I had access to your funds. For the Methodist Church to confuse this with “moral” work is the real tragedy.

If religious leaders wish to assist the poverty-stricken or immigrant, let them do so. But give of your own money and time; that is real charity. Travel to foreign nations and distribute what you will. Stand in your pulpits before your congregations and ask for donations of time, money, and talents.

If, as Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, stated, churches are concerned “about the fear and insecurity” that might be created by a reversal of DACA–by all means, pour your efforts into Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and the other countries of “dreamers” origin. But quit confusing confiscation and redistribution of others’ money as your charity.

Jesse Lee Peterson: THIS MAN IS THE ONLY POLITICIAN WHO CARES

THIS MAN IS THE ONLY POLITICIAN WHO CARES- Jesse Lee Peterson thanks God for ‘sincere, compassionate, capable’ leader in crisis

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Thank God that Trump is president in these times.

As America deals with major natural disasters in Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the people can find comfort knowing President Trump is at the helm, and emergency responders (including even FEMA) are functioning well.

I shudder to think of the mess we’d be in had Hillary been in charge. President Trump is the only politician who truly loves the people, including black people.

ABC News reporter Elex Michaelson noted that the president made “a surprise visit to one of Houston’s largest Harvey evacuation centers. Several of the storm’s survivors told me that his visit lifted their spirits and brought them hope. One [black woman] said, ‘I had a different opinion of him; now I think he’s a wonderful man.’”

This is exactly what the mainstream media and Trump’s opponents don’t want: blacks and others whom they misled finding out that he is sincere, compassionate and capable.

But one Hispanic 12-year-old girl at the Houston center, Savannah Vargas, cried and refused to talk to the president, angry about “what he said about Mexicans and undocumented immigrants.”

When asked if she talked to him about those things, she sobbed: “No because I don’t want to talk to him. I’m just very angry at him.” Instead of taking the opportunity to clear up her misconception, she judged him. She missed her moment.

How unfortunate that the media and politicians have reviled Donald Trump for telling the truth about our immigration problems – and that this girl’s parent or someone else she looks up to would brainwash her. At 12 years old, she has no business holding such judgment against a good man.

But this is the corruption of so many young people’s minds – especially blacks, Hispanics and other “minorities” – pushed in schools, media and homes.

We’re facing a crisis deeper and more destructive to people’s lives than any hurricane. For decades, the government has brought in illegal aliens and others who hate our freedom and rule of law. The government has attacked our country’s Christian values, and it has advanced the destruction of children and families. These things affect all people, but especially blacks.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood

We’ve seen the rise of anger among young people who lack love and common sense – with Black Lives Matter, antifa, MS-13, illegal-alien supporters, the Women’s March and some white nationalists. They hate and reject the weakness of their parents, and of establishment politicians. But in their anger, they cannot see the right way to go; they cannot see they’re destroying themselves.

Since before he was elected, President Trump understood and expressed the “big problems” in our country more clearly and forcefully than anyone else in leadership. He expressed love for the people.

Until Trump, black issues were not on the table, except to promote evil – Americans are called “racist” when they oppose evil. But no one else cares or talks about black unemployment or violence in communities. Immigration hurts blacks first. They face crime and competition for jobs, education and services “immigrants” bring.

Thankfully, the president took one step in ending DACA – Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive order to allow roughly 900,000 illegal aliens who came here as “children” to stay in the country.

DACA is rife with fraud and abuse (former U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services manager Matt O’Brien estimated 40 to 50 percent fraud rate), while 98 percent of DACA applicants were accepted. Over 2,100 “dreamers” had their protected status revoked due to gang affiliation, or being suspected or convicted of a felony. Breitbart News reported more than 39,000 obtained legal status through a DACA loophole, and more than 1,000 naturalized.

Judicial Watch discovered that Obama bypassed security background checks in vetting illegals under DACA. A whistleblower revealed Obama’s deputies knowingly released MS-13 gang members into our communities – the so-called “unaccompanied alien children.” Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said 68 percent of the 200,000 illegal alien “children” entering the U.S. between 2012 to 2016 were 15, 16 or 17, and majority male – presumably many with no fathers, prime targets for gang recruitment.

But the liberal media trot out emotional cases like so-called “dreamer” Karen Caudillo, a young illegal who says she’s a business owner and a junior in college. She tearfully worried about her own future and that of younger DACA recipients: “I’m going to be sent back to a country that I’ve never been to, and I’m going to lose every opportunity that I have.”

Wicked former President Barack Obama called President Trump “cruel.”

President Trump is like a father dealing with children spoiled by their mother. When the government gives people what they don’t deserve (whether DACA, welfare or Obamacare), and a real man comes in to take it away, the people cry and blame the man doing what’s right. They don’t blame themselves, their parents or corrupt politicians for ill-gotten gain – which destroys immigrants’ character. But they cry “racism” and call the good man “wrong.” What a setup!

The more the president talks directly with the people, the more they will see he’s on their side. Only Trump cares about all Americans enough to do what’s right.
