Perturbia


How does reckless Senator Harry "Cut & Run" Reid do it? Why do both he and Nancy "I am the Most Powerful Woman in the World" Pelosi have such a penchant for riling up the troops, and such an aversion for rallying the troops, at least the American ones? These two are doing everything possible to undermine the war effort.
.
President Bush will veto the defense appropriations bill, which includes a set surrender date. Let's hope and pray that the Democrats will agree to untie Bush's hands so the military will be allowed to gain the victory in Iraq. We must prevail in Iraq and keep the terrorists at bay. Otherwise, cutting and running will only embolden the Islamic terrorists, who will then cut loose on us here in America.
.
It seems to me that the Democrats see any victory by coalition forces as a defeat for them, and therefore would reduce their chances to retain and expand their political power. Unfortunately, for the Democrat leadership, including Reid and Pelosi, maintaining and expanding their power is of paramount importance to them. As the GOP found out in November, however, the American electorate does not appreciate the misuse or abuse of power.
.
A friend of A Good Choice . . ., TD, emailed us the above excellent Michael Ramirez cartoon. The cartoon captures the essence of Reid's cowardly approach. Ramirez's cartoons can be found on the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) website. We recently wrote an article about Senator CutnRun Reid.

Righting the G.O.P., Part 3

I recently received a letter from the Republican Party warning of the necessity of stopping the Democrat’s ultra liberal agenda. What about the Republican agenda, I ask myself? It is nearly as bad. Actually, I am furious with the GOP. The reasons for my serious displeasure are outlined below and in my previous articles: part 1, part 2.

The Islamic prisoners are not being preached to about Jesus and given the Word of God instead of the Quran. Our government actually should be telling Muslims that the Islamic terrorists will neither enter heaven by becoming martyrs, nor will they be having sex with virgins in heaven. President Bush appears to believe and acts as if there is no difference between Christianity and Islam.

The terrorists are not Islamic extremists. They are practicing basic Islam. Islam is a terrorist religion. Wherever the Quran is taught there is the potential for terrorism. Islam is spread by means of the sword, murder, rape, torture, pillage, intimidation and terror. I am angry with President Bush for saying Islam is a peaceful religion. BUSH really LIED but it wasn’t about the war on terror, it was about Islam! Those of us who know anything about history know that Islam is murderous and deceitful. Actually, the god of Islam is Satan. Also, the god of atheism, communism and secular humanism is Satan. Take Notice: They all work together AGAINST Christians and Jews.

The terrorists want to go to heaven. If they understood that what they are doing gets them to hell they might not do it. Remember, Saul of Tarsus (Paul) was out to get rid of Christians until he met Jesus on the road to Damascus. Then he preached Christ. It is possible that once terrorists meet Jesus they will preach Christ with the same fervor with which they once railed against Jesus Christ.

The terrorists are supported by the faddish popularity of Islamic teaching with which many non-terrorists agree. You see this in the Sheik’s offer of $10 million dollars to Mayor Rudy Giuliani to not support Israel. Additionally Islamic Turkey did not allow the American army to move through its land toward Iraq. I do not see the Bush Administration confronting this ideology effectively. It is in the minds of the people where the war is eventually won or lost. Christian Iraqis also have been persecuted and even martyred by Islamic Iraqis, those who supposedly are friendly to the United States. So in reality while they are fighting the terrorists, still they side with the terrorists as evidenced by persecuting Christian Iraqis. When anyone attacks a Christian in Iraq or anywhere else, for that matter, they are attacking all Christians including those in the United States. Many forget or do not comprehend that the world is embroiled in a religious war, instigated primarily by the tenets of Islam.

Hip Hopping Hypocrites

Yo, Barack, yo Hillary, what’s up with your scathing attacks on Imus? According to a recent OneNewsNow.com news story, “An African-American ministry (Network of Politically Active Christians (NPAC), a ministry of Wellington Boone Ministries) is drawing attention to what it sees as the selective moral outrage of two Democratic presidential candidates, Senators Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Barack Obama (D-IL), who were outspoken critics of former MSNBC host Don Imus following his denigrating comments about the Rutgers University women's basketball team.”

Vulgarity vileness, violence, and vice are all relative, right? It is, if your philosophy is “as long as it puts money in my campaign coffers and gets me to where I want to be, anything goes.” Oh, the great outrage by the Obamas, Clintons, Sharptons and Jacksons over the geriatric sleaze ball Don Imus crass comments about the Rutgers women basketball team. See an earlier artlcle which this writter wrote about the Imus saga.

The OneNewsNow.com report goes on to say, Clinton reportedly raked in $800,000 at a fundraiser hosted by rapper Timbaland [photo shown above], whose obscene and demeaning lyrics about women, critics say, make Don Imus's remarks pale in comparison. And Obama, who was quick to call for the firing of Imus, collected more than a million dollars at a fundraiser hosted by Hollywood mogul David Geffen, whose record company produces the albums of profane rappers like Snoop Dogg.”

The stinking garbage Snoop Dogg dumps every time he opens his mouth to sing his foul toxic laden lyrics, which are unfit even for a landfill? Senator Clinton may have had an additional motive beyond her apparent hypocritical disdain for what Imus said. Imus has consistently painted or pronounced Hillary to be a devil. This was vengeful Hillary’s revenge, maybe?

To sum then, if it benefits Barack’s or Hillary’s campaign, no one should question their means to the end – beat the Republicans - whatever it takes. That is more than a bit hypocritical, aye? They are putting down Imus for his comments on one hand. While at the same time they are gladly accepting money from those who make money off of unceasingly assailing much worse diabolical diatribes toward our young people. I’d say it is more than a little hypocritical! This in itself would disqualify them for any additional leadership role.

The leftist liberals hold that moral outrage and tolerance are relative. If it promulgates their leftist liberal agenda or cause it is perfectly fine. It is similar to the act of lying practiced by Muslims, especially the Islamic terrorist type. If it achieves allah’s glory and furthers their purpose to conquer the world lies are ok, anything goes. The leftist liberals and the Islamic terrorists seem to have a lot in common these days. Both it seems are hell-bent on the destruction of traditional, God-acknowledging, God-fearing America of our forefathers. One wants to establish a godless global utopia, the other wants universal worship of a false god and will kill in his name to accomplish their evil end. Both, too, appear to want to see the United States lose the war on terror in Iraq.

That is like saying there are too many flowers.

Scary Crow on a Roll?


Sheryl Crow that leftist know-it-all, ne’re-do-well, do-gooder wants us to conserve toilet paper, of all things, to save our planet. Ironically, this vixen of virtue simultaneously extols the killing of innocent human beings as an infamous abortion advocate and is a possible marriage (Lance Armstrong's) destroyer, too.

Yes, Sheryl, there is something far worse affecting mankind than wasting the Charmin. It is a simple three letter word or maybe a four letter word. It is sin and evil that exists at the core of man’s inner being. That is the real danger in and to the world. Look at the evil that lurks in the likes of Osama B. He or any Islamic terrorist mercilessly brutalizes innocents to the glory of allah. Or look at the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), Planned Parenthood and the array of abortion proponents and politicos that are beholden to the abortionists’ blood money. Abortion is the evil that warrants fear and trepidation, not global warming or any other environmental idiocy.

Get off your tainted soap box Sheryl and get a tighter grip on reality. You are so self-absorbed with your fame, fortune and the undeserved adulation bestowed on you by narcissistic and purposeless souls who waste their dollars and time in buying and listening to your pointless music. You have no credibility to deserve anyone to pay any more attention to you than to any other Jill or Joe American, maybe less. You are part of the liberal leftist crowd so driven to destroy our nation and culture through your anti-life, environmentalism pabulum. This inflicted degradation of our nation and culture is due to a pathetic main stream media sympathetic to you, and is actually in cahoots and cavorts with you and your leftist comrades-in-harm.

Just this past Wednesday Raymond Burke, Roman Catholic archbishop of St. Louis, was so disgusted with your support for the murder of innocent babies and your upcoming benefit concert that he resigned when the board of a children’s’ medical charity refused to cancel your concert on the principle of the matter. Read the
article for yourself. Way to go, archbishop dude!

The only area or issue on which Sheryl Crow appears to be conservative is in her bathroom habits in regard to her use of Charmin. Very symbolic of your clueless-ness, girl, as to what matters most. Actually Sheryl you really have nothing to crow about at all. You, my friend, in my assessment are only a talented, but dissonant musical maker. Sheryl, when the real roll (the one that really matters) is called up yonder, will you be there and will your name be written on it? That is what is truly important.

National Right to Life: The Judas Iscariot of the Preborn

I didn't have time to write anything of my own this week, so here is a link to another article by Dr. Patrick Johnston about abortion.

http://ohiocp.org/judasofthepreborn.php

I added this to this post today (4/27/07):

There were some interesting comments which were left on a post two weeks ago by some people who were angry at me for talking about ectopic pregnancies. They think that I am being judgmental. Should there be a law that says that only women can talk to their doctors about this, and everybody else should always have to keep quiet about it? Can no one except an OB/GYN form a reasonable opinion about this? Who is really being judgmental? There are hundreds of physicians who agree with Dr. Johnston.

Ken Blackwell, after the Fall

Why did Ken Blackwell, who ran for governor in Ohio last year, and many other republicans lose their elections in November? Did the GOP candidates lose because they were too conservative for Ohio, as the victorious Democrats now gloat and promote?

It was not because of conservative ideology and principles that the GOP candidates lost. I heard Ken Blackwell speak at luncheon today. The GOP candidates lost for several reasons including the fact that once they gained power, they went into the mode of just protecting the status quo and the power they gained. They did not live and act on their conservative principles. The GOP also forfeited its opportunity to lead because of the moral shortcomings of several of their key office holders. (Although Blackwell did not mention names, to me Governor Bob Taft and Congressman Ney might be good examples of this.) The party and the candidates forgot the moral foundation on which America was built. The duty of conservative politicians is to protect and preserve traditional American values. Some office holders either forgot or they disregarded the principles on which they were elected. (To me former Senator Mike DeWine exemplified this when he teamed up with Senator McCain in compromise on President Bush’s judicial appointments.)

What Ohio needs, yes, what America needs are true conservatives of both party to stick to their principles once elected. These key principles include protection of life, traditional family and marriage, a tax code that serves the taxpayer and not a tax code that is the instrument of government to control and enslave the people. We also need small government. We need politicians who will think right, effectively and efficiently. In other words, we need politicians as well as citizens who do things right and who do the right things.

Ken Blackwell, who now writes for Townhall.com wrote in an article earlier this year saying “Our conservative causes are just as true and worth fighting for as they were on November 6 (the day before the election). So, we must keep perspective, and continue. We must encourage others to also remain engaged in the struggle – to be a force for living change. In more than thirty years of pubic service one thing I have learned is that the only way a cause is truly lost is if the army is scattered and resolved to defeat."

Blackwell noted in the speech I heard him make today in Columbus, Ohio that he experienced 12 election victories and 4 election defeats. In referring to his latest defeat he cited to several quotes. One was something to the affect that one of the miracles of life is our ability to begin again (after a set-back or defeat.) He also said that we should never let any defeat or failure be a period, but only a comma and to continue to be involved.

His hope is that the conservatives, who are in office now, will recruit young staffers, who will also have the same conservative vision. Great cities and great states do not produce great good. It is good people doing good things; it is principled coalition of like-minded groups serving together to gain and use political power wisely thta produce the greatest good.

In further relating to his own defeat in the past election Blackwell used baseball player Willie Davis as an illustration. This same illustration he referred to in his Townhall.com article quoted above, “Although Los Angeles Dodgers’ center fielder Willie Davis was widely considered the fastest man in baseball throughout the 1960s and 70s, he is perhaps more often remembered for a remark he made following game two of the 1966 World Series against the Baltimore Orioles. In the fifth inning Davis committed three errors on two consecutive plays. L.A. lost the game 8 to 4 and was swept in the series. When asked about his less than stellar performance, Davis dryly remarked, “It ain’t my life, and it ain’t my wife, so why worry?” Even more important than his amazing speed, Davis had extraordinary perspective.


“More than once since the release of the November 7, 2006 general election results, I’ve given some thought to Mr. Davis’ quip. I have been elected to city council and Mayor of my hometown of Cincinnati. I was three times elected to statewide office, first as State Treasurer, then twice as Secretary of State. Voters from my political party decisively choose me to be their standard bearer in the race for Ohio Governor. When the votes were counted in the general election, however, this time I and other uncompromising conservatives did not come out on top. But beyond personal disappointment there is perspective (a la Willie Davis). And beyond such perspective there is an ironic, yet undeniable sense of accomplishment for many of us.”

Henry Ford once said, “Failure is only an opportunity to begin again more intelligently.”
.
In conclusion, Blackwell said that as a result of his defeat in the 2006 election he has learned from his experience; he understands that the GOP was sent a message by the people; and that he personally is intent on redoubling his efforts to make a difference.

American Truck Out Rally

I received an email a little over a week ago asking for help in stopping the North American Union (NAU). The goal of this rally is to raise awareness about the North American Union by creating an event that the national media would not be able to ignore! Included on this blog is a short video about this rally.

Here is a press release I found describing the planned event. “Thousands of truckers have committed to taking part in the three day “Truck Out” Boycott on April 23-25 to coincide with a rally planned in Washington DC. The boycott is a nationwide effort to STOP the process of displacing American Truckers from their jobs and show President Bush and Congress that the real lifeblood and backbone of this country is the American trucker! The point of the boycott is to shut all trucking down and surround every state capital with a convoy of trucks, cars and motorcycles to protest the corrupt plans our government has to destroy our trucking industry and our nation.”

I have been perusing my favorite news blogs and both the very liberal Washington Post and the more conservative Washington Times websites and have not found any real time coverage of any events occurring yesterday or today regarding this rally. Too bad because the North American Union, the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) between the USA, Mexico and Canada, along with the Bush administration’s recent permission given to 100 Mexican companies to allow their trucks to roll on our highways are all bad ideas.

It is a bad idea to entangle ourselves as a nation with the likes of a corrupt Mexico and a dreadfully socialist Canada. In the long run this “partnership” will lead to loss of sovereignty of our nation and lead to further decline of the middle class in the United States. Is this what President Bush wants? Or does he even care? Even allowing the Mexican truckers on our roads is a bad idea. They will be taking away jobs and work from Americans. They will be road hazzards, too.

I applaud the efforts of the organizers of the American Truck Out Rally and wish them whatever success they can muster throughout the event.

Al & Jesse, Our Culture's Vultures


Friend of A Good Choice, TD, sent us another great link, this time to the article reproduced below. The American Thinker blog, where the article had been published, and the author himself gave us permission to republish it. The truths presented in the article echo my thoughts on the dynamic duo of Jesse “shake down” Jackson and his homey Al “where’s the camera” Sharpton and their predominately negative influence on the American culture. They are truly the “great dividers.” Thanks, TD, American Thinker and Bob.

Vultures circling for their next meal

by Bob Weir


Is this a great country, or what? A churlish shock jock makes some callous, insensitive remarks on his radio/TV show and he’s reduced to a pathetic, smoldering pile of human rubble. He’s branded a racist, a bigot, a misogynist and every other derogatory title. He is fired and his career of more than 30 years is destroyed in a matter of days.

On the other hand, a female stripper makes some of the most outrageous accusations imaginable about three men, costing their families a small fortune in legal bills over a period of a year before it’s revealed that the woman lied. These three innocent young men have been dragged through the mud and are facing the label of “rapist” for the rest of their lives. However, the woman will not be facing any charges.

Now, what is the common denominator in these two stories? Unless you’ve been living in a space capsule for the past few weeks you’ll know that the answer is race. You’ll also know that there are some common characters that appear in both tragedies; their names are Sharpton and Jackson.

They jumped to the defense of the black woman who said she was raped by the three Duke University Lacrosse players; not because they care about the woman, but because the case represented another opportunity for the two Harlem hustlers to get publicity. They staged protests against the boys and played the race card as skillfully as Satchmo played the trumpet.

Of course, none of this is new to Sharpton. Twenty years ago, a 15-year-old black girl named Tawana Brawley was found in a garbage bag near her New York home. She claimed she’d been abducted, raped and sodomized by six white men, some of them police officers, over a period of four days. The details of the case were sensational enough to guarantee national headlines. Her body was smeared with feces, racist slurs had been written on her torso, and her clothing was torn and burned.

The entire country was appalled that such a despicable crime could occur at a time when race relations had seemingly improved dramatically since the days of Jim Crow. Sharpton, then merely an ambitious local rabble-rouser, jumped on the case, even accusing prosecutor Steven Pagones of being one of the rapists. Brawley’s horrible accusations turned out to be completely and viciously false. It was discovered that she was partying with friends at the same time she alleged she was raped and brutalized. In addition, a witness reported seeing her climb into the garbage bag herself.

After the phony scandal was exposed, Brawley, who changed her name to Maryam Muhammad (naturally), left town with about $300,000 of defense fund money that had been raised for her. Sharpton never apologized to all the people he hurt in that case and now says he won’t apologize to the Duke boys he smeared. Notwithstanding the fact that the Attorney General of North Carolina has declared the boys innocent of all charges and that the DA, Michael Nifong, is a “rogue prosecutor,” neither Sharpton nor Jackson has enough integrity to say they’re sorry.

Keep in mind, both of these lowlife race baiters refer to themselves as “Reverend.” Jackson, who has a record of using anti-Semitic comments and has admitted to spitting in the food of white people when he worked in a restaurant, has about as much moral fiber as a stray dog in heat, rubbing against someone’s leg.

Don Imus, for all his impropriety, has illustrated that he has more courage and character than his duo of antagonists; he apologized sincerely and profusely to those he offended. Moreover, Imus has raised millions of dollars for cancer victims, abused and neglected children and countless other charitable causes. Not that it matters to those who sit on their lazy, worthless rear ends, waiting for the productive members of society to make a mistake so they can pounce on them and swindle a free lunch.

A few days ago, conservative columnist, Michelle Malkin was subbing for Bill O’Reilly on his show. A guest who called himself a member of the “New Black Panther Party” referred to Ms. Malkin as a “prostitute for her white master, Bill O’Reilly.” (Isn’t prostitute another word for “ho“?) This guy sat there with that hackneyed, dinosaur era, “angry black man” look on his face, about 30 years too late with his ludicrous pretense of outrage. Cretins like him, Jackson and Sharpton are vultures, feeding on the leftovers from people who actually work for a living. I’d say they should be fired, but first they’d have to have jobs.

Righting the G.O.P., Part 2

I recently received a letter from the Republican Party warning of the necessity of stopping the Democrat’s ultra liberal agenda. What about the Republican agenda, I ask myself? It is nearly as bad. Actually, I am furious with the GOP. The reasons for my serious displeasure are outlined below. See my initial article . . .

Why is it that a U.S. citizen needs a passport to go into Canada and Mexico and to come back again to the United States, yet the President won’t stop illegal aliens from entering the United States? He even puts border guards in jail for trying to protect the country from drug smugglers. Why is it that drug smugglers are provided immunity to testify against border guards? It almost appears that President Bush is being paid off by the Mexican drug lords.

I know now President Bush is not a true conservative. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) wrote the “No Child Left Behind” Education Bill and left out a provision for vouchers. In 2000, 2002, 2004 we kept electing Republicans. Still we saw the Democrat agenda being advanced. I was appalled when President Bush chose not to support the conservative candidate Rep. Pat Toomey in the 2004 Republican Primary election race for U.S. Senator in Pennsylvania. Instead President Bush supported the leftist leaning darling, Arlen Specter, who has before and since only been a thorn in the side of Bush and conservative causes. President Bush, Karl Rove and GOP leadership, a principled conservative would not do these things.

President Bush claims to be a Christian. Is he really? As the Commander-in-Chief he allowed evangelism at the Air Force Academy to be stopped when some atheists complained. Chaplains in the military are no longer permitted to pray in the name of Jesus. A General in Afghanistan said we are fighting Satan. But President Bush said that this is not the administrations position and said that the General was not speaking for his administration. The Apostle Paul, in the New Testament, made the statement that we are fighting against principalities and powers of evil in high places. We are, in fact, fighting Satan. Doesn’t President Bush realize this? The President is not fostering freedom of religion.

Historically acceptance of homosexuality by a society is the beginning of the end of that society. God has said that the land will cast out that society from off the land. Evil conduct, of which is homosexuality is a part is a reproach to any people. The GOP’s umbrella should not reach out so far as to embrace this immoral, depraved lifestyle. It is a clear violation of the Christian and conservative principles, which includes morality and decency. God made marriage and the family unit exclusively between one-man and one-woman. General Pace was correct when he recently said homosexuality was immoral in an interview by a Chicago newspaper. It is a tragedy that the Bush Administration did not confirm that this was their current thinking as well.

Reid, a Traitor or Just Daffy?

Sen. Harry "Daffy" Reid?
Sen. Harry Reid-Arnold?

Is the Senate Democrat Majority Leader, Sen. Harry Reid, trying to outdo or to just be more outrageous and more traitorous than his Democrat counterpart in the U.S. House of Reprehensives, the reprehensive Nancy “I am the most powerful woman in the world” Pelosi? Or is Harry Reid just daft? Maybe he is all of the above.
.
Pelosi goes to see President Bashar al-Assad of terrorist sponsoring and supporting Syria, which is giving aid and comfort to the very enemies of America fighting in Iraq. She contemplates going to see Iranian neo-Hitler President to just "chat"? However, she refuses to talk to the President of the United States of America, the Commander-in-chief? She acts like she is an Ambassador and the Secretary of State. More like the Queen of Donkeys if you ask me. Is she trying to establish a shadow government? I question her loyalty to America.
.
This week on Sunday, April 19th, Sen. Reid made the statement “This war (in Iraq) is lost, and that the surge is not accomplishing anything, as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday.” Can you believe making such a statement right in the middle of the war? He not only does withhold support for the military's revised strategy for the war, but he belittles it. By doing so, he demoralizes the troops. He emboldens the enemy. Our enemies and their supporters are quoting him like crazy. He is their hero.
.
Does he and Pelosi not want America to win the war? Are they only afraid that if we do win the war and President Bush is somehow vindicated that Senator Reid and his cowardly comrades-in-harm would lose power? What would be worse, losing a few seats in Congress, or losing this war to the Islamic-terrorists and the repressive regimes that back them, Iran, Syria and China? I know by your treasonous statements Senator Harry where you stand. Wake up Senator Reid and get a grip on yourself and on reality.
.
Shame on you, Senator Reid, and shame on you Reprehensive Nancy “I am the most powerful woman in the world” Pelosi. You both encapsulate the very worst elements of politics. You both are as much enemies of America as Osama Bin Laden or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. You and your comrades-in-harm, the Democrat Party leadership, conspire by your words and actions that you want the Islamic terrorists to win the war on terror in Iraq. I call upon both to resign. You are both traitors. You both have committed treason. You both are unfit to hold office any longer. I call on the Department of Justice to bring charges against you. Failing to resign, or failing to be prosecuted for treason against this country, you both must go the next time you are face election!

Culture Killers

The two major culture impacting news items this week were: (1) the Supreme Court's upholding of the law banning the partial birth abortion procedure and (2) the Virginia Tech massacre.
.
.
In 2003 those contentious comrades, the liberal left, immediately tied up in the courts the law banning partial birth abortions when it was passed by both the United States House of Representatives and the Senate and signed by the President. The law codified the will of the majority of Americans. Most Americans think that this heinous procedure is way over the line. Obviously, the profane left thought (and still think) otherwise and tied up the law in court. The ungodly left apparently cares for nothing except to advance its corrupt agenda at any and all costs. Only this week the United States Supreme Court dared to reject, for once, the liberal’s wicked agenda and upheld this law.

On an internet forum last night I wrote, “. . . . . . Upholding the law banning this horrid procedure (partial birth abortion) was but a small step forward in the culture-of-life versus the culture-of-death battle being waged in America. The VT massacre and (this) frenzied advocacy of partial birth abortion (as well as all abortion, embryonic stem cell research, cloning and euthanasia) are emblematic of a society infiltrated and infected by godless secular humanism (which is the core philosophy of the liberal left).”

My statement irked a reader on the forum.

The reader scolded me calling the Supreme Court’s decision “awful and wrong” contending that “there is ample medical evidence that there actually ARE times when the health of the mother makes this (partial birth abortion) procedure necessary.” No, this is plain ridiculous and a outright lie. The cases where a mother’s health is in jeopardy ARE rare, very, very rare in this day and age of advancement in technology and medicine. This health exception is primarily used as a lame loophole used to justify all abortion at any time for any reason.

The forum reader also said that it was “outrageous and insulting” for me “to twist” the bloody massacre at Virginia Tech with a “valid medical procedure.”

Who is being insulted? The conscience and morals of this nation are insulted by the partial birth abortion procedure! Is the partial birth abortion procedure a VALID medical procedure - to kill a fellow human being who is about to be born by painfully and inhumanely cutting and suctioning his or her brains out of its skull? No, this is the worst example of the depravity of man. To me this on-going baby slaughter is worse than the VT massacre. A massacre, an execution, is committed every time an abortionist kills any pre-born baby. In fact, we have allowed nearly 50 million babies to be massacred in the United States since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

The American holocaust is a much greater affront to the values and principles upon which America was established than even the inhumane horrible massacre on the VT campus this week. This acceptance of abortion and occurrences such as the VT massacres have a common origin or cause, the pernicious influence of secular humanism on this society. Indeed, it is the root cause of the rot that exists in America today.

More on the Massacre


I agree with the article Greg wrote on Tuesday about the Virginia Tech massacre. I would add these things:


I was once rejected by someone who I had been in love with. I took it hard and was very angry. I turned away from God for a long time because of it. My advice to anyone in this situation is to trust in God, reject the practices of the World, and look into the Bible for answers.

Secondly, I have been hearing that there are laws which limit professors and school administrators from contacting parents about college students about their behavior. This is all in the name of privacy. What a stupid law!

Thirdly, whenever something like this happens, people think that we need to have a new law that would prevent such a thing from happening. But people almost always look into themselves (their own wisdom, knowledge, and feelings) rather than looking to the Bible for the right answer. But rather than having a better lock down procedure or putting more restrictions on fire arms, we need to get rid of laws which are not of God. Here is an excellent article by Dr. Patrick Johnston about why gun control is unfair and does not work.
Jesus told his disciples, "...he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me. 'And he was reckoned among the transgressors' for the things concerning me have an end. " (Luke 22:36, 37)

A Partial Victory


The Supreme Court in a narrow 5-4 decision today upheld the partial birth abortion ban. Yes! Thank You God! It is a victory. Surprisingly Justice Kennedy wrote the opinion for the majority. He is a moderate (read near-or-mostly-liberal) voice on the court, usually voting for the liberal or wrong side of any major culture impacting court decision. This is a baby-step in the right direction, pun intended, at least for a few nearly born babies who will now have the right to take their first breath and their first steps.

What the left is saying about the U.S. Supreme Court Decision Today to Uphold the Partial Birth Abortion Ban


“Federal Abortion Ban” The Supreme Court has done the unthinkable and upheld the Federal Abortion Ban [ A LIE ] with no exception for a woman's health. We can fight back with the Freedom of Choice Act, but we need your help to make it happen. --- National Abortion Rights Action League website

Supreme Court Upholds Abortion Procedure Ban "Most Political Decision Since Bush v. Gore" --- National Organization of Women website

Court ruling on Federal Abortion Ban [ A LIE ] endangers women's health. Donate now as Planned Parenthood mobilizes in response to the Supreme Court's reckless decision to uphold the federal abortion ban [ A LIE ] — a ban that tells women that politicians, not doctors, will make their health care decisions for them. --- Planned Parenthood Federation of America website

“Our Right to Choose” The Supreme Court decision to restrict abortion procedures [ A LIE – one heinous abortion procedure, Queen Hillary ] with no regard for a woman’s health is a fundamental attack on a woman’s right to choose and a dramatic departure from decades of rulings that put the our right and our health first.” - -- Hillary Clinton dot com website

Upholding the partial birth abortion ban, where the practice of suctioning a baby’s brain out of his or her skull while he or she is in the process being born, is truly a no-brainer. You know we treat animals better than these victims of partial birth abortion, our fellow human beings. But this cruel and unusual punishment or procedure has been permitted to proceed for two years or so since it was first passed and signed by the President. Isn’t it enlightening that the all of the Republican candidates for President support the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion, while the party to the left all emphatically decry today’s ruling! Furthermore, it shows the great importance to elect a non-liberal President in ’08 and the critical importance of the Alito and the Roberts appointments to the Supreme Court.

The profane left, driven by the likes of the greedy inhuman Planned Parenthood Federation of America, nasty National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) and the National Organization of Woman (NOW) brood among other pernicious pro-death organizations, each of which respect life about as much as an Ayatollah respects a Christian’s right to practice his or her religion in Iran. These same murderous mercenaries, who will with a straight face and with all the gall of Massachusetts, scream that the constitution has been violated. However, the reality is that every abortion is a violation of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, common sense and decency, and the very conscience of man. Yes, abortion contradicts and is an anathema to every value and principle that is truly American.

The radical left will use this “defeat” for assorted fundraising gimmickry, as an attempt to rally the most radical of its element and to intensify the pressure on already unprincipled politicians and jurists to do more to institutionalize this horrid right of any woman to “legally” do away with her offspring for convenience sake or any other bloody excuse that she may dream up.

I briefly heard Rush Limbaugh’s comments at noon today. He stated that the left will try to embarrass, harass, blame, belittle and otherwise put intense pressure on Justice Kennedy. The liberal leftist elite will fain fake outrage and horror at this relatively minor setback to their most ignoble cause. Both the main stream media and other leftist factions will join forces in a massive campaign to discredit and denigrate Justice Kennedy’s decision, so that on the next major culture of death case he will not stray this far from the liberal party line. In other words, Justice Kennedy is a marked man, a target.

Let us rejoice for a few minutes, for a few hours in savoring this victory, yet let us be ready to battle again tomorrow on the front line against all those working so diligently, so concertedly and so completely to destroy America.

The Evilution of America

Kevin Lamarque, Reuters
A student breaks down in tears at the ceremony. Other officials, including Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and university President Charles Steger, also addressed the crowd. (from AOL)

Note: Fellow blogger Sam shared in the development of this article.

In this article we share some of our thoughts about yesterday’s Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University massacre in Blacksburg, Virginia, the greatest massacre on a school campus in American history. The intention of the title of the article is to denote the growing evil that is spreading in America.

Virginia Tech is both a symptom of and the natural result of a Secular Humanistic mindset and philosophy devoid of morality and so rampant in America today. You take Jesus Christ out of America, the Lord Jesus Christ out of schools and this is what you get: the VPI Massacre, Columbine High School tragedy, etc. In Scripture God says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell,And all the nations that forget God.” (Psalm 9:17, NKJV) We see this happening in America today.

This is evidence that human beings are basically depraved at the core. The President of Virginia Tech said on at least two occasions during his address that man is basically good. This is an out and out liberal lie. Government and laws are necessary to restrain evil, which lurks in the heart of every man. The Secular Humanists LIE is that man has evolved from a lower animal and is gradually “evolving” into a better and better, a higher state of enlightenment. This is a LIE. Both man and America are stepping backward for every liberal agenda advancement made! Every step “forward” in carrying out the liberal agenda is actually a set back, a devolving or deluding of American values and principles on which this nation was founded.

AN AMERICA DEVOID AND DEVOLVING, THE REAL TRAGEDY

Isn’t it paradoxical that the liberals try to con us by referring to themselves as “progressives”, when all along they are really leading the way for America to regress to back to heathenism, paganism, hedonism, savagery and humanism? Not only do the liberal elite reject true biblical Christianity, they are viciously opposed to it and desire more than anything to eradicate it.

America is slipping away, thanks to the complacency and apathy of Christians and Conservative, values voters sitting on our hands. Let the Virginia Tech massacre be a wake up call to call us all to action to restore true Judeo-Christian values in all aspects of our society. May this be a warning to reject the liberal lies of diversity, tolerance and multiculturalism. No, America’s greatness is due to the fact that our forefathers fought to make us one nation under the Judeo-Christian God (and the Lord Jesus Christ) and not the myriad of false gods and religions that liter our nation’s landscape today and are enthroned even in our churches, citadels of “learning” and in the crappers, the production studios of Hollywood.

THE APPARENT PERPETRATOR OF THE TRAGEDY

At first the gunman was a mere nameless and then a faceless (literally, he shot himself in the face as he became the 33rd person to expire in this massacre.) From what we know so far, the perpetrator of this tragedy was a South Korean, a senior on the campus, here on a student visa. The dorm that was shot up was a coed dorm apparently where his ex-girlfriend lived. He, it seems, was looking for her. He was a jilted boyfriend. There is some conjecture that he had been influenced by Islam, he donned tattoos honoring some Islamic leader.

THE REAL PERPETRATORS OF THE TRAGEDY

We should expect more of this type of crime as America becomes more secular and influenced by false religions such as Islam, which apparently influenced this killer. He was likely also influenced by America-hating professors who denigrate the United States in their “teaching”.

The Judiciary should step forward and claim some of the credit for this tragedy as well. They ordered Jesus Christ, God and prayer out of schools under the guise of the lie of separation of church and state. They are taking the 10 commandments out of the schools, they are denying even the acknowledgement of Christmas and Easter. So what do you expect? Cho Seung-Hui, the South Korean mass murderer, was doing what apparently the judiciary wanted – not following the 10 commandments. Is the judiciary happy now? There is a purpose to codifying morality. There was a reason our forefathers acknowledged and honored God and based our laws on Biblical precepts.

In addition, although pretty much accepted as “norm” these days the uncommitted and casual sex that the coed dorms foster, a breeding ground, so to speak, for immorality and uncommitted sexual relationships so promoted by the free loving likes of Planned Parenthood and the liberal elite. The “if it feels good do it crowd” (maybe Mr. Cho Seung-Hui just felt good about killing so he did it?) where more of a contributing factor in this tragedy than were guns. Guns, we heard even before the dead students and professors bodies became cold, were the reason for this incident and there were cries for more gun control. Guns caused this incident? No, if anything the politically correct yet insane banning of all concealed weapons on campus a year ago, by the "enlightened" liberal elite leadership, was more of a cause than were guns.

No, the major cause for this needless, senseless waste of life was the acceptance and expectation of an amoral, immoral, a godlessness so incessantly promoted by the leftist liberal elite controlling and influencing much of academia today - that was a major cause of this senseless tragedy. The environment and culture being shaped by godless humanists spawned this more than anything else.

Absurdity of “Hate Crimes” Laws


To think one can know the true thoughts or intentions of another person comes from Asburdistan or maybe from the Pit of Preposterous. A criminal's thoughts and motives is what the supporters of "hate crimes" legislation (The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, or HR 1592) such as Representative John Conyers or Senator Ted Kennedy and others desire to regulate. The result would be that someone committing a crime against a homosexual person would be punished more severely than someone committing a similar crime to a young child or an elderly individual. This too is absurd.

Just as with our nation's immigration problem, Congress wants us to believe we need new laws. No, we only need enforcement of existing laws. Likewise we do not have to create a whole new special class of citizens with special protections, which "hate crimes" legislation would bring about. All citizens are protected under existing criminal laws right now. No new laws are needed. Click on the link below to see the absolute absurdity of "hate crimes" legislation.

Righting the GOP, Part 1

I recently received a letter from the Republican Party warning of the necessity of stopping the Democrat’s ultra liberal agenda. What about the Republican agenda? I ask myself. It is nearly as bad. Actually, I am furious with the GOP. The reasons for my serious displeasure are outlined below.

A Republican (majority) Congress passed the bill authorizing the funding of embryonic stem cell research (ESCR). This is nothing more than cannibalism. The “Witch Doctor” Senator Bill Frist, was the one who pushed the bill. Thankfully, President Bush vetoed the bill. Recently the G.O.P. is trying to come up with a compromise on permitting ESCR on non-viable embryos. What does that mean? It means the killing of human being and it is wrong, period. ESCR has yielded nothing. Adult stem cell research has already yielded great benefits. It is a ploy of money-hungry academic researchers and blood-thirsty liberals and politicians who want to bring a culture of death to America and it part of their religion. It is just like the religions of old in which they used human infant sacrifice in idol worship.

Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN) is sponsoring the Law of the Sea Treaty, which gives the international waters to the United Nations. How smart is that? We would have to get U.N. permission to float our Navy.

Senator George Voinovich (R-OH) saw to it that the tax cut was sliced in half thereby limiting the tax cut’s usefulness.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) had the campaign finance reform bill limiting the amount each candidate can receive from each individual-, but the Political Action Committee has no such limits on contributions. Is this fair? McCain’s bill also limits the free speech of the individual by not allowing criticism of incumbents 30 days before an election except for the press. Bush even signed it knowing provisions of the bill were unconstitutional.

The Fair Tax

Unlike yesterday’s subject, the “Fairness” Doctrine, which is not al all “fair” and especially not to conservatives, today’s topic, the FairTax, is fair to everyone.

This weekend, there are probably more than a few other Americans, like me, who are completing 1040s, state and local income tax forms. The annual ritual of either doing our own taxes or visiting our CPA or tax preparer is analogous to going to the dentist for a tooth extraction or for a Catholic, going to the priest for an annual confession. Tax preparation can be literally a grueling and taxing exercise.

The The RightMarch.com website describes America’s current Federal income tax system as “broken, complicated, easy to evade, and unfairly burdens the lower and middle classes. And, attempts to fix it have only made it worse.”

DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THE IRS AND ILLEGALS

With the looming deadline facing many it is a good time to pause and reflect on the bureaucratic nightmare that the current income tax system causes most legal Americans. I say legal because there are a growing number of illegal aliens who are working in the vast underground economy. This is because President Bush, his administration, our government bureaucracy and our spineless representatives, all refuse to enforce our immigration laws.

Illegals are taking wages under the table from lawbreaking employers thereby robbing the U.S. Treasury and Americans of “revenue” to provide necessary services. In fact, it is these very illegals who are increasingly demanding the “free” services– schools, healthcare and various forms of welfare - for which they often contribute next to nada. But the whole immigration matter is another story.
However, something has to be done with both our income tax system and as well as our immigration problem. One solution that would address both is the Fair Tax Plan. One group, the Americans For Fair Taxation (FairTax.org) is leading the effort to bring about this needed change, namely abolishing the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

WHAT IS THE FairTax?

According to the Americans for Fair Taxation (FairTax.org)
website “the FairTax plan is a comprehensive proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll taxes with an integrated approach including

· a progressive national retail sales tax,
· a rebate to insure no American pays federal taxes up to the poverty level,
· dollar-for-dollar revenue neutrality, and
· the repeal of the 16th Amendment.

This nonpartisan legislation (HR 25, S 25) abolishes all federal

· personal (income tax),
· gift,
· estate,
· capital gains,
· alternative minimum,
· Social Security,
· Medicare,
· self-employment and
· corporate taxes

and replaces them all with one simple, visible, federal retail sales tax – collected by existing state sales tax authorities. The FairTax taxes us on what we choose to spend, not on what we earn. It does not raise any more or less revenue; it is designed to be revenue neutral. So it is cost neutral – the final cost for goods an services changes little under the FairTax. The FairTax is a fair, efficient, transparent, and intelligent solution to the frustration and inequity of our current tax system.”

Not only will the FairTax provide the advantages listed above it will also allow the government to collect from much of the underground economy, such as the Mafia, illegal aliens and other criminals.

HOW WOULD THE FairTax WORK?

According to the RightMarch.com website, “The FairTax would impose a 23% (tax-inclusive) sales tax on the purchase of new goods and services in the U.S. It would let workers keep their entire paycheck and retirees keep their entire pension; abolish the IRS and ends all audits of individual taxpayers; replace the federal income tax, freeing individuals from ever filing a tax return again; replace all payroll taxes including Social Security and Medicare taxes (current Social Security and Medicare benefits would not change); replace corporate and self-employment taxes; eliminate all hidden federal taxes; provide a universal rebate equal to the sales taxes paid on essential goods and services to ensure that no American pays taxes on necessities; replace all estate, gift, and capital gains taxes; dramatically lower tax rates for low- and middle-income Americans; close all tax loopholes; bring accountability to tax policy; and let American-made products compete fairly."

The Fairness (?) Doctrine

The whole Imus affair may embolden the liberal left’s pursuit again to push through Congress the so-called Fairness Doctrine.

In a CNSNews.com article, Fred Lucas writes, “Democrats in Congress want to bring back the Fairness Doctrine, a federal regulation that required broadcasters to present both sides of a controversial issue. The FCC enforced the rule from 1949 to 1987, when it was dropped during the Reagan administration.” The Fairness Doctrine would have the affect of silencing the strong conservative voice in talk radio today. This new media has offset the largely biased mainstream media, which has held a virtual monopoly on the news with the likes of Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather and Katie Couric and Public Broadcasting Corporation (PBS).

Now that Nancy “I am the most powerful woman in the world” Pelosi and her comrades-in-harm have seized power in Congress if only by a slim margin they would love to silence their opponents and once again monopolize the media. This is common communist dictatorial practice. Though Pelosi may not be a card-carrying communist, her philosophy and her anti-American actions offer the same results.


It is interesting that Lucas’ article quotes Ken Blackwell, unsuccessful candidate for Ohio Governor and former Ohio Secretary of State, who is a black conservative (the antithesis of liberals Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson). The article stated that Blackwell disagreed with Imus’ firing, even though he said the long-time radio host's remarks were deplorable."Liberals went after one of their own so they can go after a true conservative talk show host" in the future, (Blackwell) warned. Blackwell also faulted Viacom, the parent company of CBS, which fired Imus but still owns Black Entertainment Television, a cable TV channel Blackwell said shows music videos that "denigrate women in general and African-American women in particular."”

Although I do not agree with Secretary Blackwell that Imus should not have been fired, I do agree with him that Viacom is just as guilty of exploiting and espousing racism as Imus. I also think Viacom and other pimps of perversion in the entertainment business should be “fired” by America, which should (1) stop buying their garbage, (2) ban the music from the public airways enforcing or passing indecency laws to insure this, and (3) restrict sales of the x-rated rap, etc. music and relegate this trash to the adult section of record shops requiring a person to be an adult to be able to make any purchase.


Lucas writes in referring to what Dick Morris, political advisor and consultant, said “a decade ago, 50 percent of viewers got their news from ABC, CBS and NBC nightly newscasts. Today, with the explosion of cable news, only 20 percent get their news from those networks.” Morris is quoted as saying, “The Fairness Doctrine only made sense at a time of scarcity and monopoly of media sources.”

The ultimate aim of the Democrat’s “Fairness” Doctrine is to restrain freedom of speech and to silence the voice of the opposition, ala totalitarianism.

Imus is Done

Joseph Farrah had an excellent WorldNetDaily article yesterday in which he wrote about shock jock Don Imus and his latest PR grabbing stunt denigrating black female athletes. Farrah disagreed with Imus’ punishment – the two week suspension, he thinks it was not enough and that he should be fired. Other notables and/or notorious who are calling for Imus’ termination include leftist liberals like Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, radical liberal activist Al Sharpton, Bruce Gordon, former head of the NAACP and a director of CBS Corp., along with conservatives like journalist Joseph Farrah of WorldNetDaily.

However, a NewsMax
article today conjectured, “Sen. Clinton may have had a personal motive to take on Imus. Clinton’s (campaign) e-mail blast could easily be viewed as payback against Imus for constantly attacking her on the air — even referring to her often as "satan” or the "devil.”" So Sen. Clinton may see this as an opportunity to get back a nemesis of hers even more than her apparent “outrage” at any racial insults.

Farrah asked in his article. "
But what should we expect from CBS and NBC? They are part of the same irresponsible entertainment industry that has neatly packaged and marketed this same kind of hate speech in the form of "urban music" or rap or hip-hop.”

His point is that Imus’ bosses are as much or more to blame for putting Imus and advocating or promoting the horrid filth that ungraces the airways and the raunchy rap music from which Imus gets his lurid racial slurs. What Imus said on the air is mild compared to the lyrics heard by millions of young people who listen to so-called urban hip hop or rap music. Farrah notes, “And so, when Imus goes, I also want to see Snoop Dog go. I want to see Eminem go. I want to see Mims go. I want to see Young Buck go. Along with them, I want to see the real exploiters go – the music moguls who produce and market this crap to your children."

Therefore the issue goes deeper than the superficial grizzled and decrepit Don Imus and his offensive racial affronts. Farrah concludes that the root cause of the rot when laid bare is, “That means the executives of Capital and Columbia Records gotta go. That means David Geffen needs to stop pretending to be a friend to black people with contributions to Barack Obama's presidential campaign and own up to his responsibility for trading in the sexual and racist hate speech of urban rap.” Wow, doesn’t that really sum up the basic issue doesn’t it?

American culture is being corrupted not only by the slime purveyors like the Imuses and Howard Sterns in the media, but by those who produce, promote and profit from selling sex, violence and drugs in music and entertainment. This decadent lifestyle is constantly being regarded more and more as acceptable and “cool”. These pimps of perversion including Imus are destroying the moral fabric of American society. No wonder the Islamic-terrorists see America as the great Satan – they see this side of America only . . .

Community Defense Act (CDA) in Ohio

Much of this article was borrowed or based on a website presentation of the Ohio-based Citizens for Community Values, which was instrumental in developing Ohio Senate Bill 16, the Community Defense Act. This proposed legislation is important - because it affects the physical and spiritual welfare of our families and our communities. Like legalizing additional forms of gambling, such as casinos and slots, there is much more harm than good that results to society as a whole when such businesses are allowed to exist. Gambling and sexually oriented businesses (SOBs) both work against traditional families.

Wherever sexually oriented businesses are found - strip clubs, adult bookstores and the like - an increase in crime is sure to occur. Heading the list of crimes which sexually oriented businesses attract include violent sexual crimes, prostitution, and dealing of illegal drugs. The damage to our families goes deeper than any increase in crimes and corresponding decline in property values. It goes to the very heart of families. Less well documented, perhaps, but undeniable, are the adverse effects that these businesses have on the marriages, families and individual lives of those who frequent them.

The Community Defense Act (CDA) would place two straightforward regulations on all sexually oriented businesses (SOBs) in Ohio on a uniform, consistent basis. One would limit the hours of operation, requiring that they close between Midnight and 6:00 am, the times that government studies show most of the crimes linked to these businesses occur. The other would require that a distance be kept between nude employees and their patrons, putting an end to so-called "lap dances," a form of prostitution that is commonplace in most nude strip clubs. These two regulations, applied consistently throughout the state, would go so far in limiting the damage inflicted on our families and communities through sex businesses.

The effort demonstrated to Ohio legislators how important that CCV and others felt that these two regulations were to families. They made use of a rarely-used Constitutional provision that allows citizens - concerned voters - to sponsor a bill. By collecting over 220,000 signatures on a petition approved by the Attorney General, CCV was able to present CDA to the Ohio Senate and the House of Representatives on January 2, 2007 the first session day of the 127th General Assembly. This initiative petition process allows the General Assembly four months in which to act on the proposed legislation. CDA must be passed by both the Senate and the House by May 2, 2007.

At this time, thanks to committed leadership, CDA seems to be progressing through the Senate at a pace consistent with that May 2 deadline. CCV is very concerned, however, about passage of CDA by the Ohio House of Representatives. Although received on the very same day, CDA has yet to be assigned to a committee in the House for consideration - the first step in the process toward passage. Getting CDA through the House by that May 2 deadline can still be accomplished - but only if leadership in that chamber makes passage of CDA a priority and takes extraordinary action.

If CDA has not been passed into law by May 2, CCV will be forced to collect a second round of signatures in a very short time frame in order to place the bill on a ballot for vote. That is a costly and difficult procedure.

TAKE ACTION

Please click
here to easily link to contact both the Speaker of the House, Jon Husted, and the representative from your district, in order to emphasize to them how important this family legislation is to you, and to encourage them to do everything within their power to pass CDA into law by the May 2 deadline.

Funding Cannibalization


This week (beginning tomorrow – Tuesday, April 10th) the United States Senate will begin debating the Reid/Haskins bill, Senate Bill 5, or the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act of 2007 (S. 5), which would provide funding for research that will require the killing of human embryos. The U.S. House passed a similar version of this law. This same bill last year was vetoed by President Bush, who if you remember used his first and only veto to date. The brash Democrat leftist leadership desires to ram this legislation through thinking it may be able to overcome the Presidents veto this time around. Let’s hope not.

CANNIBALIZATION

The dictionary defines cannibalization as “to strip (old – or, in this case, brand new pre-born babies) equipment (or, in this case, human beings) of parts (or here, stem cells) for use in other units.” That is, in essence, what Embryonic Stem Cell Research entails, destroying (so-called salvaging) human beings for the express purpose of experimenting for some yet to be proven benefit for mankind. This dreaded Dr. Jekyll- Nazi Dr. Josef Mengala-like scientific experimentation is at the expense of exterminating fellow human beings.

LOOK WHO IS SPONSORING


Radical Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown along with fellow left wing liberal Senators. Ted Kennedy, Hillary Rodham ‘I Want to Be President and I Will Promise You Anything” Clinton, Barbara Boxer, John Kerry, Charles Schumer are cosponsors (really coconspirators or comrades-in-harm) of this bad bill.

LEGAL BUT WRONG

Not only is this a terrible waste of money, it is also immoral and unethical to kill fellow human beings just as abortion is. Abortion, even though it is legal, is not funded by the federal government. Likewise, liberals should not force U.S. taxpayers to fund research that requires the killing of embryos. Last July, President Bush vetoed the same bill and the House upheld the veto. This year, the battle will be even more intense, and the drive for S. 5 is strong.

TAKE ACTION

I emailed my two Senators today asking them to reject this unnecessary and unseemly bill. Please contact your United States senators and let them know that you strongly oppose S. 5. To send them an email opposing S. 5 click here and look for the ACT NOW banner and click on the “Oppose the Reid/Harking Bill, S. 5, which will FORCE YOU to pay for killing human embryos." Or call 202-224-3121 as soon as possible and ask for your senators’ offices.

Jesus Lives & So Can You

The Catholic "Eucharist"

Today, Sunday, April 8th, 2008 is the day Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. Thus, this event sealed salvation to all who believe in Him. It doesn’t matter what a person’s religion is, including: Roman Catholicism, Mormonism, Jehovah Witness, Baptist, Islamism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Atheism, witchcraft etc. Once a person believes in Jesus, repents and confesses to God. of being a sinner. Immediately the Spirit of God comes into them and they are born-again.

This past Thursday, Holy Thursday to Christians, I happened to listen to a broadcaster named Al on the Roman Catholic radio network. He was talking about the Eucharist and the role of the priest. In John 6:53 Jesus states, “Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you have no life in you.” Al said that no where does Jesus comment that this is a metaphor. Actually, Jesus does and Al and the Roman Catholic Church have missed it. In John 6:35 Jesus says, “I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst.” So going to Jesus is the same as eating His flesh and believing in Him is the same as drinking His blood. In John 6:63 Jesus tells the disciples that it is the spirit that makes alive; the flesh profits nothing; the words I speak to you they are spirit and they are life. An example of this is recorded in John 4 regarding the woman at the well. Here the people in the town go to Jesus and believe in Him and are saved as a result of listening to Him.

Al goes on to explain that when Jesus gave the Eucharist (Matthew 26:26-28, Jesus took the bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body. And He took the cup, and gave hanks and gave it to them saying, “Drink you all of it, for this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Thus, the Roman Catholic Church teaches, as Al said that the bread and wine become divine and when the person eats the bread and drinks the cup they actually eat and drink the body and blood of Jesus. By doing this they fulfill the Scriptures where Jesus said except you eat My flesh and drink My blood you have no life in you. Apparently, Catholics believe that eternal life comes from this act of taking the Eucharist. In this way the Catholic Church teaches it is the priests’ responsibility to serve the Eucharist in order for the people to obtain eternal life, which is not true.

In reality, this is a gate to hell for people are not saved by taking communion. The wine and bread do not become divine. God says He will not give His glory to another nor does He change. For the bread and wine to become divine God would have to give His glory to another and God would have to change. This does not happen.

Secondly, we are not saved by works of righteousness. Partaking in communion is a work of righteousness. As Paul wrote in Ephesians 2:8, 9, “For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of your selves; it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Thirdly, eternal life is as Martin Luther said, “By faith alone,” see Romans 3:21, 22. The righteousness of God without the law is manifested being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference. Paul concludes that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law (Romans 3:28). Paul gives the example of this as Abraham in Roams 4. Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Fourthly, a person must have the Spirit of God dwelling in him for salvation to take place. Romans 8:9b reads, “Now if any man has not th Spirit of Christ, he is not His. In Christ also after that you believed you ere sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession (Ephesians1:13, 14)

God sent His only begotten Son because He loved you. Jesus fulfilled the law was flogged, crucified, received into His own body all human sins for all time, endured God’s wrath and separation from God. Finished the process and died. Then He resurrected from the dead. We only have to believe on Him.

Jesus said, as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness so must the Son of Man be lifted up. The people, in Moses’ day, only had to look at the serpent on the pole and they were healed. We only have to believe in Jesus and we are saved.

Why don’t you believe in Jesus today? You can pray these simple words, “Lord, Jesus Christ forgive me of my evil and the sin that separates me from You and come into my heart and life.” I urge you to pray this now.
