President Obama is really good at math...

Hat tip goes to Mike Beacham (@Mike_Beacham), who recently tweeted the following...

"Obama is great at math. He divides the country, subtracts jobs, adds debt and multiplies misery.”

Climate Change Madness

Junk Science

Man-Caused - (first) Global Cooling, (then) Global Warming, and (now) Climate Change - is an Insidious Hoax Perpetrated by Leftists, Marxists, and Extreme Environmentalists who Desire to Reduce America to Third World Status...

Carbon Dioxide is necessary for the survival plant life, human and animal life on the planet. If (and I don't believe that it is) carbon dioxide is harmful to the planet, a near bankrupt America doesn't have the resources to do anything significant to impact it...We would be wasting more money...

Environmental extremists and Marxists are driving this foolish movement...

There are many scientist who reject the notion of man-caused climate change... indeed, much more than the 2% implied by this grossly biased article...

I wrote and posted these comments in response to an article this morning. That very biased article was titled, "Ridiculous pseudo--science garbage": Meet the GOP's environment leaders! What do the 8 Republicans who sit on the Senate Environment Committee think about climate change? We break it down."

If anything is "ridiculous" "pseudo-science" and "garbage" it is the notion or theory or opinion that man has been the primary cause of changes in climate. Like the tightly held religious belief of 'believers' of the flawed theory of evolution, these man-caused climate change believers are essentially truth deniers. The so-called scientists and academics had to falsify the data to 'prove' their point about climate change (ClimateGate). The media, academia and government still put stock in those discredited studies...

Does the Mother's Severe Illness Justify Aborting Her Baby?

by Dr. Patrick Johnston

I grieve when I look at the lawless, immoral, unconstitutional fake pro-life bills that are being pushed in Texas and in other states. It is so discouraging to see the thousands of earnest pro-life Christians rallying for a feel-good bill that doesn't really protect children. As Tom Hoefling said, "When evil has a phony fight with evil, and good doesn't show up on the field, evil wins, every time."

What's wrong with the Texas "20 week" bill? Itcreates a new class of sub-humans who may be destroyed; namely, those who they claim cannot "feel pain." The bill also justifies abortion in cases of rape, whether the baby feels pain or not. Moreover, the bill contains language which nullifies itself if its restrictions are found to impose an "undue burden" or "substantial obstacle" in the path of any woman in her attempt to abort her baby. It's almost as if abortionists wrote a bill and tricked pro-lifers into supporting it.

April's edition of Answers magazine, which is produced by the Christian ministry Answers in Genesis and Ken Ham, highlights an article written by AIG author Dr. Tommy Mitchell that justifies abortion in a case of maternal health. He gives the example of a pregnant woman with leukemia who requires immediate chemotherapy. The chemotherapy may likely kill the baby, he argues, so the abortion is justified.
In spite of being presented with evidence of scientific studies showing that chemotherapy is "relatively safe" for preborn children and not as dangerous as once thought, they have held their ground and refuse to budge on their justification for the killing of some babies.
In a face to face meeting early this year, AIG leaders also justified abortion in cases of HELLP syndrome. While speaking at a homeschool convention this summer, I had the honor of meeting Darren and Michelle Blough, and their two beautiful children Moriyah and Nathaniel, both of whom were born in spite of HELLP syndrome. Babies can survive it! You don't have to kill babies to save their mothers!
The Blough family
With the second pregnancy, Michelle also had eclampsia, and kidney failure. She was on dialysis and had a dozen units of blood. She was intubated. What would have saved the mother's life, according to the physicians? "Terminating the pregnancy," of course. I thank God that they listened to the voice of conscience and God's Word, and not the voice of godless physicians who think it's okay to sometimes kill helpless babies.
A baby AIG justified killing
Moriyah, a baby that Answers in Genesis leaders justify aborting
As the Blough family's testimony shows, killing babies isn't good healthcare after all. And it's not good pro-life policy either, for it abandons God's blessing for a bill the devil could "Amen," and perpetuates the abortion holocaust.
A more thorough refutation of AIG's position on justify abortion in cases of maternal health, see my article "With the Compromise of Answers in Genesis, a Giant Has Fallen."

What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?

There have been a lot of comments to the radical leftist article, There's Nothing About Abortion in the Bible -- So How Do Right-Wing Christians Justify Their Crusade Against Women? The modern religious right is trying to bring back the Bible's teaching that women are inferior and should be the possessions of men.” I joined the ‘discussion’ and here is one of my comments:
The person growing inside of the pregnant woman IS a person. A person is a person no matter how small! Deny the truth if you will, but truth if accepted and acknowledged, will set you free...

Early on during his or her life the baby feels pain, it responds to stimuli, it moves, it feels. How do you know he does not perceive his environment? How do you know it is not learning? How do you know it is not hearing? What makes you think that it is not conscious? 

Actually as every human being, including the pre-born child has a fallen nature. It is prone to evil once it arrives in the world and is mature enough to choose good or evil. The baby is innocent from the standpoint that it has never been given the opportunity to choose good or evil. Also in a rape the pre-born baby is clearly the victim of a crime. It is the perpetrator of the crime whose life should be taken, not the child who has never had any opportunity to make good or bad choices...
It is ludicrous to compare a baby with a kidney or any body part! You deny reality and truth and science when you refuse to acknowledge that the pre-born baby is a unique person, a dependent human being! There are three people involved in a pregnancy, the father, the mother and the baby...

Right now there is no punishment for having an abortion. The depraved and bigoted SCOTUS took upon itself the role of God when it ruled to make the immoral, godless, decision to allow abortion. 

The punishment women get now - in more cases than the Left is willing to admit - by merely getting an abortion is a life of remorse, possible physical problems like infertility, guilt, emptiness, depression… This in and of itself is punishment. But the abortion industry like the Planned Parenthood Federation of America regrettably hide the facts of the negative aspects of abortion from the mothers in order to fill their blood stained coffers... that is reality...Wake Up America...

Reaganomics and Obamanomics Contrasted

I saw this tweet just now which says it all. President Barack Obama's economic policies (or lack of policies) are driving America to ruin as cleverly demonstrated in this Senator Ted Cruz's tweet:

Obama and Morsi are Birds of a Feather: Reeking Economic Havoc

Political Cartoons by Glenn Foden
Cartoon by Glenn Foden as found at on 7/5/2013

What a great cartoon capturing the abject failure that both Mohammed Morsi and Barack Obama have been in their respective natures. And to think President Obama bet billions on the wrong horse, Morsi, showing incompetence in matters of foreign affairs.

Amnesty, Illegal Immigration and Border Security

This post is a response to an earlier post by GregJaye.

There should never be amnesty even after the borders are secured. The Constitution forbids all Ex Post Facto laws (at both the federal and state levels). This means that it is illegal to pass a law which would change the punishment for a crime that has already been committed. (It works both ways--you can’t legislatively increase or reduce the punishment.) Immigration law can be changed so that future violators are not punished as harshly, but whatever punishment was prescribed at the time that the violation occurred, must be carried out or else the government is derelict in its duty. The Constitution does give the Congress the authority to restrict immigration.

This does not necessarily mean that there cannot be “a path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants as long as it is allowed by the law that was in place at the time that the violation occurred.

The only other *possible* Constitutional remedy is for the Executive to grant pardons to the violators, but this must be done one at a time. (But I am not sure that the pardoning power that the Framers had in mind really goes as far as we have taken it today.)

I am a believer in freedom for all. I do not believe that crossing a border is evil except in extenuating circumstances (e.g. for security reasons we must keep out violent criminals). I do not believe in punishing people for something that is not evil. (The Bible says that you will be judged by the same measure that you judge other people.) Even though the Constitution gives the Congress the authority to restrict immigration (for virtually any reason), that doesn’t mean that they have to exercise this power for no good reason. There wouldn’t be an illegal immigration problem if immigration hadn’t been made illegal in the first place! If an honest person wants to come to America and give an honest day’s work in exchange for an honest day’s pay, then why not let them do it?

And yes, of course we do need to secure the borders because the Congress is required by the Constitution “to protect the States from invasion”.

The other problem with this issue is "birthplace location citizenship".  This problem is caused by the so called 14th Amendment and by the outrageous interpretation of its phrase "under the jurisdiction thereof".  Requirements for citizenship should be much higher than the requirements to immigrate into the U.S.

A Prayer for Independence Day

Sovereign God, You created the Heavens and the Earth and all that is in them in six days.
You created Man in Your Image and cast him out of the Garden when he sinned.
When every thought of man was only evil all of the time, You destroyed the Earth with water.
You delivered Your people from the oppressive hand of Pharaoh.
You brought them through the Sea on dry ground.
When Your people turned away from You, You sent them prophets to warn them.
When they stoned Your holy messengers, You sent the Babylonians to punish Your people for their idolatry and injustice.
When the enemies of Your people destroyed their cities and their land, You preserved the words of your holy prophets.
You sent Your Son to redeem all those who would believe in Him and repent of their sins.
You called apostles and holy prophets to write the words of Your Son Jesus and the words of the New Covenant with Your Children.
When the enemies of God again killed the holy prophets and apostles, the Church grew like wildfire.
When they killed those who translated Your Holy Bible into English, You preserved and multiplied their work and opened the eyes of the people.
The Pilgrims escaped persecution to find a better land and were preserved by Your mighty hand.
You guided them to a great land and made them very prosperous and gave them liberty.
You defeated the armies of the British when they harassed us with swarms of officers. You blessed us with the means of throwing off their oppressive yoke.
When we mistreated the Negroes of our land, you punished us with a bloody war and took away many of our freedoms.
When we again turned further away from You, You allowed more of our freedoms to be taken away.
We have murdered babies, glorified detestable behaviors, stolen from one another, and forgot the words of the Holy Bible which You gave us.
You punished us with more wars by giving us greedy, corrupt and foolish leaders.
We have prayed for the economy in vain.  We have prayed for peace in vain.  Our soldiers die in vain.
You will not hear us because we cherish sin in our hearts and have no regard for Your law.
Dear Lord, please help us to humble ourselves so that we will turn from our wicked ways,
And You will hear Us from Heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land.
Please help us to listen when You speak to us!

"Abortion" in Sign Language

SCOTUS Ruling on Marriage

The Supreme Court ruled that a portion of DOMA is unconstitutional.  This was the portion which does not allow same-sex couples to be included in the definition of marriage for purposes of Federal law.  They did not strike down the portion of DOMA which allows the states to keep their definitions of marriage.  They decided not to rule on the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, which defined marriage as being between one man and one woman in the state of California.

What this means is that any federal law which provides immunities or privileges (i.e. tax breaks) for married couples must also apply for same-sex couples who considered to be married by the laws in the state in which they reside.  This is unacceptable.  The government should never encourage sinful behavior.

The reasoning that the court gave for this is that federal government had no authority to punish people for engaging in a homosexual relationship.  But what about people who are NOT gay, but are not married?  Isn't it just as wrong to punish them (if depriving someone of a tax break is to be considered a punishment)?  A what about the court's ruling that the federal mandate to purchase health insurance is just a tax?  They are saying that the federal government can "punish" you (by making you pay more taxes) for not purchasing health insurance (which includes abortion coverage) and it can "punish" you for not choosing to be single, but it cannot "punish" you for choosing a same-sex partner rather than an opposite-sex partner .

In my opinion, conservatives in Congress should abolish all Federal laws which contain the word "marriage".  That way, no homosexual couple would get any tax breaks and the federal government will not be promoting sinful behavior by these tax laws and other laws which give people special rights.  In most, if not all, cases these were bad laws to begin with.  Congress should repeal the Estate tax so that entering a homosexual relationship does not give you a tax break.  You shouldn't have to pay an inheritance tax no matter who you inherit from.  But I don't think that any of my ideas will go over with even the so called "conservatives" in Congress.  That would make too much sense.  They don't do anything right.

The other thing that I would point out is that this may never have happened if the Marriage Protection Act had passed.  Ron Paul supported this bill, but Rick Santorum did not.  Conservatives need to examine the voting records of candidates more closely and not pay too much attention to their rhetoric.  Click the Marriage Protection Act label below.
