The Biggest Bigots

Hat tip goes to T.D. who sent me this cartoon. It captures the essence of the racial problem in America today - the ongoing race baiting conducted by so-called black leaders and social justice brothers Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton.

Chuck Colson, 1937-2012

I would like to pay tribute with this blog post to Chuck Colson.  Chuck was best known for his role in the Watergate scandal and his subsequent conversion to Christianity after being arrested for crimes in connection with the scandal.  He admitted that what he did was wrong and spoke out against corruption in government from then on until the day he died.  He said that he deserved to go to jail for what he did and was thankful to God that he was caught because he might never have come to know Jesus otherwise.

Most of the rest of what I know about Chuck comes from a book called God and Government which he authored.  The book has a little of what you might expect from a social conservative, but a lot that you might not.  He did a good job a relating how easy it is to become corrupted by power.  Besides giving his own personal testimony, he reminds us about various freedom movements around the world like the Solidarity movement in Poland, the overthrow of the Marcos government in the Philippines, and the toppling of the Soviet Union.  He talked about Dietrich Bonheoffer, a Christian who refused to give in to the government takeover of the Christian church in Nazi Germany.  He also recounted some great stories about events which lead to an easing of tensions between Protestants and Catholics in Ireland.

Like a typical socially conservative writing, he speaks out against some of the violations of the rights Christians and the erosion of morality and integrity in the government.  One example he gave was a case where a church decided to expel one of its members because of an admitted case of adultery.  The government got involved and a judge decided to force the church to take the unfaithful church member back, despite the lack of repentance.  He also opposed same-sex marriage and abortion.

Of course, I don’t agree with everything he said in the book.  For example he uses the word “Democracy” incorrectly and his interpretation of First Amendment is quite flawed.  I also strongly disagree with his embrace of preemptive war (and particularly in the case of the Iraq War).

However he didn’t completely fit the mold of a typical social conservative. 

He expressed some libertarian-leaning views in the book.  For example, he opposed three strikes laws and supported reducing or eliminating sentences for non-violent offenses (e.g. drug offenses).  He talked about how he traveled all around the world making speeches and talking to prison officials to persuade them to improve living conditions for prisoners.  He opposes the torture of prisoners of war.  This issue is not exactly first and foremost on the minds of most Christians today, but nonetheless it is an important issue and it was a great work for the Lord he did.  His efforts in this regard went hand-in-hand with his rehabilitation based prison ministry.

Another way in which he was a little different is that he believed that just because a candidate is a Christian that does not necessarily mean that that candidate is the best choice.   

And although he opposed Darwinism, he believed in the Big Bang Theory, touting it as proof of the existence of God.  This is because the Big Bang Theory includes a beginning of the universe.  The Steady State Theory was an earlier theory which had been embraced by the scientific community and did not include a beginning.

There was one quote from the book that I particularly liked.  I can’t remember it word for word but it went something like this:

There is no such thing as a government which doesn’t legislate morality.  All laws legislate someone’s idea of morality.

Rest in Peace, Chuck.

Dr. David Keseg Endorses the Ohio Personhood Amendment

Thomas Massie for Congress 2012

I endorse Thomas Massie.  He is running for Congress in Kentucky’s 4th congressional district.  This is the seat of the departing Republican congressman Geoff Davis seen in the video above.   Massie is a Christian.
He believes that life begins at conception and supports a Constitutional Amendment to ban abortion and legislation that would overturn Roe v. Wade.  He promises to vote against all government funding of abortion procedures, abortion pills, and embryonic stem cell research and to vote for defunding Planned Parenthood.
He believes that marriage should be between one man and one woman and state governments should not be forced to condone nontraditional marriages established in other states.
He is against corporate welfare, government run healthcare, healthcare regulations, and burdensome food and farming regulations.  He seems to understand the powers of the federal government are limited to those expressed in the Constitution. 

He supports the “penny plan” to reduce the National Debt.   He supports legislation to achieve a simpler, flatter, fairer tax code.

He believes that at times, America needs to act to defend itself from foreign enemies, but this must be done within the framework of the Constitution and all wars must be formally declared.

Thomas Massie is also endorsed by Ron Paul.

Where is your treasure?

Below is a letter that I wrote to local Christian radio station after a comment made by one of morning show personalities.

I was listening to your station one morning and I heard a comment that you made about a man who built some kind of bomb shelter, possibly for the reason that he wanted to be safe in case of a nuclear attack or tornado or something.  To show that this man was not doing what is right, you quoted Matthew 6:19-21:

Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

And you also may have quoted Matthew 6:25-29:

Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

Well, I have a few verses of my own.  (I hope that you will bear with me because this is a long letter.)  But first, I want to explain that I am what you call a “prepper”.  I do not have a bomb shelter, and I am not planning on building one any time soon.  But as a “prepper”, I do believe in preparing myself in case that there is a disaster.  I do store food with a long shelf life, I have means of storing and purifying water, and I am working on obtaining alternative power sources.  And I don’t believe that there is anything wrong with this for the following reasons. 

It is most obvious that Jesus is not teaching that people should not take reasonable precautions.  Notice he uses the word “treasure” in Matthew 6:19-21.  In my book, necessities like food, clothing, and shelter are not treasures (i.e. luxuries).  You may ask, “But what about verses 25-29?  Don’t they teach that “prepping” is unwise?”  No it doesn’t for this simple reason:  I am not worrying about what is going to happen.  I know that God will take care of me no matter what.  But that doesn’t mean you should completely throw caution to the wind.  I know that God can destroy even the best bomb shelter. And He can save someone from mortal harm who takes no precautions at all.  I know such people.  I know God takes care of them.  Some are not able to “prep” because they can barely get by even day to day.  But those who “prep” can be blessing to those who don’t if something happens.  God doesn’t call everyone to do this.  Some people He chooses to live by the seat of their pants (e.g. Matthew 10:9).

Think about this in terms of other precautions like smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and insurance policies of various kinds.  And what about saving money?  Is it wrong to have CDs, IRAs, 401Ks, saving accounts, annuities, stocks, bonds, or mutual funds?  Aren’t these also “stored treasures”? (See footnote below.)  When people do these things, it isn’t that they don’t trust God, they are just trying to be wise stewards of what God has given them just as many righteous people did in the Bible.  For example, Joseph took the precaution of storing lots of food in order to preserve the people from the forthcoming famine.  (See Genesis 41:28-36.)

“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished.”  Proverbs 22:3

So I think that your real problem with what this “bomb shelter” man is doing is one or more of the following:

  1. The measures that this man is taking are too extreme.  He is spending too much money on precautions which could be spent on advancing the Kingdom of God (i.e. evangelism, giving to the poor, and other ministries). 
  2. The threat that this man is preparing for is too remote to justify this amount of preparedness.
  3. The precautions would not succeed for very long (if at all) even if that type of disaster really did happen.
For reason number 1, I would say that that is up to God to judge.  As I indicated above, God uses different people for different purposes and just because what someone else is doing isn’t what God has called you to do, doesn’t mean that they are outside of God’s will.

For reason number 2, I would agree with you depending on the circumstances.  I blame the news media, politicians, and even some Christian preachers for using fear to drive people to such extremes.  The chances of Iran or any other nation hitting us with a nuclear weapon is zero.  This is just a case of people playing on your fears in order to promote the bottom line of the military-industrial complex.  It may also have to do with racism and hatred of Muslims. 

But on the other hand, if the reason for the underground bunker is a precaution against a tornado or hurricane, and if you live in area where such disasters are common, then I have no problem with it.

For reason number 3, again it depends on the circumstances.

Finally I would like to say that for me, preparedness isn’t just about surviving some impending disaster, but it’s about leverage and dependency.  There is nothing wrong with being dependent on God or the (local) church.  But the more you are dependent on the world, the more leverage the world has against you to cause you to stumble.  For example, if you have your own means of providing for your own healthcare needs instead of a health insurance policy or government program, then you don’t have to worry about your payments into the system being used for abortions or other sinful practices.  Your electric company may subsidize television programs which are not family friendly, so it’s better not to be absolutely dependent on them.  Think of it as keeping your options open so that you do not become a slave of evil.  I might even describe some people who unwilling to make the extra effort to divest themselves of the world in these ways as being lazy.  But I am not accusing any specific people because I also realize that not everyone is able to do these things.


All of the investments I mentioned are usually dependent on U.S. dollars.  This is legal tender that we have now in the U.S. and is called “Federal Reserve Notes”.  These are not backed by silver or gold as they once were.  They are subject to inflation and could be become worthless if the Federal Reserve Bank produces massive quantities of them, and it is in their power to do so.  This type of hyperinflation happened in Germany about 100 years ago.  People had to bring wheelbarrows full of cash to buy bread.  There is no reason to think that it can’t happen again in America.  If even gold (very stable element) can rust away and other tangible assets can likewise perish, how much more foolish is it to put your trust in “the full faith and credit of the United States” (mere pieces of paper with numbers printed on it!)

Signature Gathering Opportunities

The Personhood Ohio website has a new page listing events at which people can go to gather signatures for the Personhood Amendment to protect every unborn baby from being murdered by law.  This is the best way to get involved with the Personhood cause.

Santorum’s “Act of God”

Now that Santorum has dropped out, he has shown how wimpy he really is.  I mentioned in a comment that if Santorum really cared about changing the country for the good, he would have stayed in the race to try to force a brokered convention.  But since he is almost the same as Romney, what would be the point?

I remember Santorum’s response to the statement, “It would take an act of God…” for you to win the election.  Why then did he drop out?  I guess Santorum no longer believes in acts of God!  Actually, in one of Santorum’s responses to the statement, he made a Freudian slip and said, “I believe in act of Gods.”  Ah!  Maybe he was subconsciously referring to polytheistic faith which his major opponent professes.  Maybe he meant that the gods are on Romney’s side because he is a Mormon, a religion which teaches that Elohim (God) is just one of many and that people can become gods.  That religion would seem to suit Santorum well because he thinks that he is so great and thinks (like Mormons) that doing good works cancels out sin.  (Remember how he justified some of his bad votes like abortion funding and No Child Left Behind.)  The only problem would be that he would have to give up drinking alcohol and smoking pot.

Day of Silence Walk Out

The Day of Silence is on Friday April 20, 2012.  This is for sodomites to protest about how they have supposedly been bullied. They are going to keep their mouths shut for an entire day.  But the protesting students are supposed to participate in class as usual and answer questions when called upon by the teacher.  But if your school does not enforce this rule, here is a website about what to do:

They have a sample letter you can write to your school to find out what their policy is and encourage them to not allow this protest to interrupt normal instructional routine.  If they won't be reasonable then they suggest trying a protest of your own, that being keeping your child home for that day.  And if you ask me you should never send your child back.  Start homeschooling!

Mitt Romney is a 'Conservative' of Convenience

George W. Bush was supposedly a compassionate ‘conservative.’ Rick Santorum claimed to be a consistent conservative. Willard Mitt Romney is a convenient ‘conservative.’

Watch for the etch-a-sketch reset if Mr. Romney wins the GOP nomination for President. His true liberal colors will shine.

All we conservatives can do now is to work toward and hope for a brokered GOP convention this summer!

Abortion, the REAL War on Women!

Abortion is the real war against women. After all, aren’t 50% of all aborted babies female?

Isn’t one of the core components of the Obama Administration’s agenda, as well as the key platform issue of his Democratic Party, the radical support including the preservation, expansion, and funding of this loathsome “surgical procedure”?
Doesn’t this European socialist and Marxist President even audaciously claims that the GOP is guilty of conducting a so-called war on woman because they oppose taxpayer funding of contraceptives, sterilization, and unbridled abortion? The President and the Democratic Party adamantly espouse a woman’s “reproductive rights” which translated means the right to murder their fellow human being, her son and/or her daughter, resting innocently in her womb. Babies from conception onward are not mere tissue or appendages of a woman’s body, they are individual human beings. Their destruction is murder, pure and simple.

Therefore, although the current occupier of the White House claims to be on the side of women, he wants to oversee the demise of millions of females in the womb of women across the nation and especially the black babies, which are aborted at a greater percentage and frequency than any other babies. The President words and mouthed platitudes are antithetical to his core beliefs and actions. He is the actually the unabashed leader in the war against women, not their defender or protector.

Speaking of immoral and harmful policies promoted by this President and the Democratic Party, Senator Jim DeMint in his most recent book, Now or Never, Saving America From Economic Collapse, makes this cogent statement about Democratic policies:

Democratic policies have done far more harm than good for African-Americans. Before President Johnson’s welfare expansion, the unwed mother rate for African-Americans was less than 10 percent. Today, with welfare incentives encouraging out-of-wedlock births, over 70 percent of African-American are born out of wedlock. Democrats so often say we need government solutions to solve our problems when what they ultimately do is subsidize these problems. Unwed births are a primary contributor to poverty, high school dropouts, unemployment, drug use, crime, and incarceration, and welfare has seriously harmed the family structure of American families – yet Democrats remain wholly resistant to any reforms. Their answer to how we might finally fix these problems? More spending, more federal control, and, as always more government.

So who’s really prosecuting the war on women, the family, and American values?

Is it the freedom (with associated responsibility) loving and seeking conservatives? Is it Christians? Is it the GOP (at least its published platform)? Is it the individual?

Or is it those who promote “freedom” without responsibility, which approaches anarchy or selfishness? Is it the secular humanists, who distain and want to eliminate all Christian influence in our society? Is it current corrupt Democratic Party elite infected and motivated by failed European socialist philosophies and policies? Is it the collective?

The American people as a whole will ultimately answer the question in this year’s primary and general elections. Voting for the status quo, voting for almost any Democratic candidate assures us that the war on women, the continued war on family values and other fundamental American values and principles will be further advanced.

Exercising Authority over Satan at Work and Elsewhere, Part 11

Many times situations happen in our lives which we do not know how or why they take place.  The main source of conflict is Satan.  He and those evil angels under his command can work through various situations. These evil entities also put ideas into people’s heads, which people think are their own ideas, to bring about Satan’s desires.  It is also for possible for people things to have demonic spirits in them.  Jesus has given those, who are in Christ, authority over all the power of the enemy.

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases (Luke 9:1).

Elsewhere - The Weather - An Example from Scripture

Jesus was sound asleep in the boat on the Sea of Galilee while a storm was raging; filling the boat with water. The disciples awakened Jesus and said, “Don’t you care that we parish.”  Jesus calmed the storm and then said to his disciples, “Where is your faith (Luke 8:22-25)?” This passage really speaks to me.  Often I am besieged with problems and I say to God, You don’t care.  Now I see His response, where is your faith?  How about you, where is your faith?
“And the same day, when the even was come, He saith unto them, ‘Let us pass over unto the other side.’  And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as He was in the ship. And there were also with Him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.  And He was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake Him, and say unto Him, ‘Master, carest thou not that we perish?’  And He arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, ‘Peace, be still.’ And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.  And He said unto them, ‘Why are you so fearful?  How is it that you have no faith?’  And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, ‘what manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him (Mark 4:35-41)?’”

You’re Response

The disciples came back to Jesus after ministering in the country side and said, “Even the devils are subject to us.”  Jesus said, “Don’t rejoice that the devils are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in the Book of Life.”  Reader, is your name written in the Book of Life?  If you are not sure that your name is already recorded in the Book of Life, or if you know your name is not in the Book of Life, then right now you can repent of your sins and invite Jesus into your life.  A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me of my sin and come into my heart.”

Catholics and Evangelicals Wake up to the Message of This Video

Hat tip goes to tweeter @LiberalWhoppers as well as blogger where I was directed to this video. The comments below are from

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vein.”
Psalm 127:1

Catholics Called to Witness released this powerful video for the 2012 election. The values ad includes this powerful quote from Cardinal Dolan:

“Forcing the Church to buy insurance that goes against her teachings is a violation of religious freedom… When the government tampers with a freedom so fundamental, one shudders to think what lies ahead.”

This is an amazing production. The video already has over 100,000 views.

My County Central Committee Experience, part 2

This is a sequel to a post I wrote two years ago about precinct committeemen. Last week we had our biennial meeting of my county Republican's Central Committee. This was the second such meeting that I have attended since being elected to the committee in 2010.  The precinct committeemen are supposed to be able to vote on who the chairman of the county party will be for the next two years as well as many other important offices.  Like the last time, they had it at some fancy downtown hotel, there was only one slate of candidates for all of the offices and the whole thing was orchestrated to keep the establishment in power.

But unlike last time, one committeeman at least spoke up against the some of the corruption that goes on in the party at the county level.  (No, it was not me.)  A representative from a rural precinct, after having voted "no" on some of the candidates including the chairman, was able to get a word in about how his ward chair was not properly elected and had been making decisions on behalf of his ward without informing the other precinct committeemen in the ward (as is proper).  The man went on to complain that the questionably elected ward chair, after having lost an election in the Republican primary (to a more conservative candidate) for a local public office, campaigned for a less conservative non-Republican instead of handing out the GOP "pink sheets" at the polls in the general election.  (The pink sheets have all of the Republican endorsed candidates listed on them.)  This may well have cost that conservative candidate the election.  He went on to say that he had to go all the way downtown himself to get the pink sheets and faithfully handed them out at the polls.

I have had similar experiences, which I cannot elaborate on because I don't know all of the facts.  But suffice it to say that my ward chair has not been diligent in his duties either. They try to keep us lowly precinct executives in the dark as much as possible so that they can hold on to their power.

But all of the motions he made concerning this issue were denied despite the fact that he had complained about this for months.  They dismissed his complaints on the basis that he did not follow proper procedures.  The parliamentarian explained to us that a motion to change the rules must be formally filed previous to the meeting and that basically the chairman has the sole authority to enforce the rules.  He also said that there would probably never be enough members present in order to even have a vote on such a motion.  It seems to me that you can't win without running someone against the chairman, and even if you did, he might use his power to stop any challengers.  Its a tough way to go if you want to root out this corruption.  Our chairman clearly has no intention of disciplining any of the corrupt ward chairs (or those claiming to be ward chairs who really aren't).  The system is set up so that he and the executive committee have all the power.  After two years, I still have never had an opportunity to vote on something that where the was actually choice.

There were other motions made concerning the committee's support for certain other issues which would involve acts of congress and/or the state legislature.  But I think that this was not the time for these issues to be discussed because we need to clean up our own backyard first.  Who are we to tell congress what to do when we have all of this corruption in the midst of our ranks?  But the fact that some non-establishment committeemen are at least speaking up at these meetings is somewhat heartening.

I talked with the man who spoke out and he gave me a copy of the constitution of the county Central Committee.  After having read part of it, I am considering resigning my seat because it says something about a requirement that committeemen vote for and support candidates endorsed by the committee.  Depending on exactly how it is worded, I may resign because I certainly cannot support many of the candidates which they have endorsed or will endorse in the upcoming election.  I will never vote for or support candidates who vote for certain things, most especially taxpayer funded abortions.  I don't care how much worse their opponents are or what their party affiliation is.  I will not remain in the committee if I am not in compliance with the rules even though no one would likely ever find out.  Unlike them, I believe in following rules.

Obama's Dishonest Propaganda

Obama said, “Ultimately, I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress…judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint — that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.”

It is not at all “unprecedented” that the Supreme Court has struck down Federal laws on the basis that they are unconstitutional.  It has happened over a hundred times.  Obama later said that he was only talking about overturning laws on the basis that the Commerce Clause does not grant Congress the authority to pass a certain law since Wickard v. Filburn.  Again, this is not unprecedented, nor should it be.  Obama is basically saying that 10th Amendment should have no application whatsoever. 

He is not saying that other parts of the constitution can’t be used as basis for striking down laws, just the linchpin of the entire Constitution.  For example, he is perfectly fine with allowing the courts to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, as evidenced by his recent decision to order the DOJ to stop defending its constitutionality in court.

Whether or not judges should be allowed to “strike down” laws is another matter, but certainly judges should not take part in enforcing a blatantly unconstitutional law.

Notice Obama says that it is overturning a law passed by Congress which is so unprecedented.  This is despite that the 10th Amendment which ensures that the majority of powers belong to the states and despite that it is usually when state or local laws are overturned that there is the most outcry from the religious right, and usually justifiably so.  The only problem with the religious right is that, not knowing the Constitution (or not caring about what it says) often unwittingly advocate unconstitutional centralization of power in Washington because of some position on a moral issue which they want to be enforced.  Furthermore the religious right is often very complacent about unconstitutional laws which were passed by the left a long time ago.  They either think that it is unreasonable that these should be overturned because they don’t think of them as being leftist policies or they themselves are really somewhat leftist.  For example, if it is unconstitutional for the federal government to force us to buy Obama-approved health insurance, how can it not also be unconstitutional for them to force us to pay into Medicare or Socialist Security?  People just don’t think critically and/or are ignorant of the Constitution.  But Obama clearly wants both the left and the right to remain ignorant of the Constitution and especially the 10th Amendment.

Obama-Romney: A Choice Between Two Evils, Pick Your Poison!

Deadlocked Convention Intervention

Here is an update of the list I developed months ago as I followed he GOP Presidential race. I still hold out hope for a brokered GOP convention. Willard Romney is almost as unacceptable a candidate for President as the current occupier of the White House. Of the three remaining candidates after Senator Rick Santorum’s suspension of his campaign, there is none I could vote for. I hope that Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul would win enough votes to keep the mushy mainstream moderate-to-liberal Romney from gaining the GOP nomination.

A deadlocked convention has to produce a nominee who can motivate the base to work to defeat Barack Obama. I could not support Governor Romney. He is a charlatan. He is a fake conservative. He is a fraud. I see little or no difference between Obama and Romney. One would just destroy the country faster than the other, that’s the only difference. It comes down to a choice between two evils.


1 - Michele Bachmann

2 – A Conservative*** to be named later


3 - Herman Cain

4 - Rick Santorum  

5 - Rick Perry


6 - Newt Gingrich – like Romney talks a good line, but has acted opposite on many issues. Great debater, but loses the argument with me.

7 - Ron Paul – strong fiscally, middle of the road socially, denies Islamic threat to America and the world, wants to legalize hardcore drugs

8 - Jon Huntsman

9 - Mitt Romney – an establishment stooge, will the real Romney please stand up? Ronald Reagan was the Gipper. Willard Romney is the Flipper! Romney would be socialist-lite in comparison to the hardcore socialist/Marxist 44th President.

10 – Barack Obama - should never have been elected President in the first place. He is a community organizer at best.

The Experts Say New Casino Will Increase Risk in Cleveland

Here is an excerpt from an article I saw in a local newspaper about my hometown and the scourge, which is about to further plague that troubled and impoverished city.

Casino gambling with its glitz, new jobs and attraction for troubled gamblers is coming to Cleveland, one of America's poorest cities, and experts agree the convenience will increase the number chronic gamblers willing to lie, cheat or steal to get a poker fix.

The bottom line is that gambling will hurt rather than help the urban areas. Crime will increase. Families will be torn apart. Homelessness will mushroom. Nothing good will come from the casino, except maybe to line the pockets of owners and the politicians, who are in the pockets of the owners.

You can read more of this insightful article at: “Experts: Casino will add to risks in Cleveland.”

Go for Broke(red) GOP Convention!

It is my belief that Governor Mitt Romney is a complete con man. At the core of his being is a liberal, socialist in the mold of Barack Obama. He’s been accurately labeled as being “Obama Lite.” He lies when he now claims to be a Conservative. He does so in order to gain the GOP nomination. He is devoid of principle. The Etch-a-Sketch candidate will morph into the mushy moderate-to-liberal political hack that he is, if and when (God forbid) he secures the GOP nomination!
Indeed, that is an all-too-accurate depiction of who Willard Mitt Romney is. Like Bob Dole, George H.W. Bush, and John McCain before him, he is the GOP establishment elite selection. And like these predecessors, he would be defeated in a general election.

An Obama-Romney contest for President would be like Presidential failures George H. W. "No New Taxes" Bush versus Jimmy "Worst President Ever Until Barack Obama Came Along" Carter. It would be the battle for the title of biggest loser!
America’s best hope and best bet is for a brokered GOP convention, in which a real conservative might emerge as the candidate the base and grassroots can support. I, for one, could not support Mr. Romney in any way. Hopefully, most Americans and Republicans will not be conned by the neither the GOP nor by the slick ads of the self-described “conservative,” charlatan Romney.
I am growing increasingly disappointed with the likes of Senator Marco Rubio and other so-called conservative leaders who are coming out in support of the liberal con man Romney. Instead, we should be demanding someone who personifies and who has demonstrated that he believes in and has applied conservative principles and the U.S. Constitution while in office and not merely mouthed platitudes in order to get elected!

Ladies were having a Bible Study outdoors because the weather was so nice and enjoyable.  During the study, wind suddenly arrived on the scene blowing papers around and the pages of the Holy Bible.  This annoyed the leader of the Bible Study; she rebuked the wind and told it to calm down and the weather became quit again.

Joe Biden Promises to Call for the Impeachment of Obama

An Interpretation of the Obama-Medvedev Gaffe

Obama and Russian (Puppet) President Medvedev spoke without realizing that there was live mike right in front of them.  This reminds me of the Bush years.  Read below what they said and see the video above for an explanation of what it means for us.

President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

Exercising Authority over Satan at Work and Elsewhere, Part 9

Many times situations happen in our lives which we do not know how or why they take place.  The main source of conflict is Satan.  He and those evil angels under his command can work through various situations. These evil entities also put ideas into people’s heads, which people think are their own ideas, to bring about Satan’s desires.  It is also for possible for people things to have demonic spirits in them.  Jesus has given those, who are in Christ, authority over all the power of the enemy.

Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases (Luke 9:1).

Elsewhere - The Weather - Samuel

Samuel was driving in Missouri to Jefferson City.  He happened to see a funnel cloud on its side and thought.  “That could do some damage if it touched down.”  Samuel said, “Satan I bind you in the name of Jesus and cloud I command you to break up in the name of Jesus.”  A shaft of light started in the bottom of the cloud and went to the top splitting the cloud in two; then it dissipated.

You’re Response

The disciples came back to Jesus after ministering in the country side and said, “Even the devils are subject to us.”  Jesus said, “Don’t rejoice that the devils are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in the Book of Life.”  Reader, is your name written in the Book of Life?  If you are not sure that your name is already recorded in the Book of Life, or if you know your name is not in the Book of Life, then right now you can repent of your sins and invite Jesus into your life.  A sample prayer is, “Lord Jesus Christ, forgive me of my sin and come into my heart.”
