Take Your Children Out of Government Schools - by Dave Hodges - Many Americans are speaking about removing their children from government run schools and finding alternatives to an increasingly failing system. In lieu of the recent rash of school shootings … Many American government run schools are largely becoming bastions of ignorance and underachievement. In short, many schools are not doing their job.

Columbine Caused By  Curriculum, Board Member Charges - By Bill Scanlon - Denver Rocky Mountain News Scripps Howard News Service  4-6-00 - The Columbine High tragedy was caused in part by a curriculum that overemphasizes death and doesn't teach right from wrong, a Colorado state school board member said in a recent speech.


"When all the kids' videos are about violence or sex, when kids are allowed and even encouraged to make such videos, what do you think is going to happen with some of these kids?" board member Patti Johnson said Wednesday, amplifying remarks she made in Cincinnati last week.


Her speech in Ohio was titled "The Real Killers at Columbine: A Curricula Gone Bad."Johnson said Colorado schools have too many teachers who encourage students to question the values taught at home and who push them to talk about death. – Link to Website

Sandy Hook Shooting: Let’s Dump the Psychological Doubletalk - by Rev Michael Brescian - It is a progressive state of decadence that starts with the inability to discern between right and wrong. When it reaches that level where good and evil are not recognizable, it is in the advanced and most dangerous stage. In its most advanced stages, destruction is all that remains.


Atheists, secularists, educators and the well-educated may think they have everything well under control, but life in America is quickly dispelling that absurdity.


The modernist may think that Christ, his apostles, and todays preachers and messengers are pedaling an old, long since outdated, philosophy of religion that was borne in ignorance, and practiced today only because of their tolerance and something called the First Amendment. …

Whether you believe in God or not makes no difference at this juncture. But if you have any inkling that he exists or if you have ever doubted that the creator sees all that we say and do. If you have ever heard, or read, that Jesus Christ has said that God the Father knows the number of the hairs on your head; (Mt 10: 30)  then consider this - God goes through the equivalent of the Connecticut shooting 200 times over, every single day as 4,000 unborn human beings are destroyed and dumped in waste boxes each day in these United States.

Our Lady of Guadalupe's devotion extends beyond the Americas – By David Agren – Valero, an anthropologist and president of the Archconfraternity of Our Lady of Guadalupe, was asked by an official with the Mexican consulate in Shanghai to send two large images of Our Lady of Guadalupe.


"It was the least likely place we could have sent images," Valero said, recalling the cool commercial relations between Mexico and China at the time. But the images were well received by Chinese Catholics and were placed in the cathedrals of Beijing and Shanghai. …

But with the approach of the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe Dec. 12 (12-12-12) -- when millions of Mexicans will make pilgrimages to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in northern Mexico City -- many non-Mexicans also will mark the day. Many will be in unlikely places, far from Tepeyac Hill, home of the basilica and the site where Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared in 1531 to St. Juan Diego.


Valero has sent images of Our Lady of Guadalupe around the world -- as far away as Australia, she said. Her organization has chapters on four continents and in countries as disparate as Canada, Slovakia and the Philippines, where she sees growing interest.


"I've never seen it so strong," she said of the international interest in Our Lady of Guadalupe. "I see a boom internationally." - Link to Video


Obama and Your Child’s Mind – By Stanley Kurtz - Why does President Obama want your child to read “Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management” in school?

The Constitution and several federal laws prohibit it. … Parents across the country are just now waking up to the fact that President Obama has forced what is in effect a new curriculum on their local schools. This immensely important change ought to have been fully reported and debated during Obama’s first term. It’s a disgrace that the Democrat-controlled media never allowed that debate to happen. - Link to Video


"We cannot expect the Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism."(credited)

— Nikita Khrushchev (1894-1971) Leader of the Soviet Union


“The bourgeois clap-trap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parent and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more, by the action of Modern Industry, all family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of labour." “I marveled a bit at the feat [Lubianka re-education]. I also began to understand more clearly what was meant by rewriting history for the proletariat and how it could be arranged that young people would hear nothing whatsoever of God.”

— Walter J. Ciszek Jr (1904-1984) Polish-American priest, imprisoned in various labor camps for 23 years for missionary work in the Soviet Union


Communist Manifesto

"We destroy the most hallowed of relations, when we replace home education by social. And your education! Is not that also social, and determined by the social conditions under which you educate, by the intervention, direct or indirect, of society, by means of schools, etc.? The Communists have not invented the intervention of society in education; they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention, and to rescue education from the influence of the ruling class.


If I Were the Devil prophetic radio broadcast by Paul Harvey 47 years ago! Some younger people may have never heard of Paul Harvey.

When you hear this, you will realize just how much of a prophet Paul Harvey really was, who was a famous ABC radio commentator for almost 50 years until he died in 2009. In 1965, millions of Americans listened to his radio programs which were broadcast over 1,200 radio stations nationwide. When you listen to this, remember the commentary was broadcast 47 years ago on April 3, 1965. It's short...less than three minutes. You will be amazed. - Link to Video


America on Lenin's path to 'health care' - Exclusive: Dr. Lee Hieb tracks history of socialism via 'medicine' - Call a Code Blue! Medicine in America is in cardiac arrest.


 If the election results are to be believed, the majority of Americans do not trust themselves and their highly trained physicians to make decisions about their health. Rather, they have relinquished total control of their medical care, including 14 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product to the same crew of incompetents who crashed the housing market, who poured billions into business failures such as Solyndra and who see food stamps as supporting a jobs-growth program. …


Across the Baltic, the Russian communist Vladimir Lenin, too, understood the role of medicine when he opined, “Medical care is the keystone in the arch of socialism.”


One of the first acts of the new Bolshevik government was to nationalize health care – again, not out of altruistic concern for the masses of Russian peasants, but to centralize control over the population and over physicians, who tended to be free thinkers and well respected by the citizens. …


There is no better summation than that of Charlie Reese when he wrote years ago, “There’s no dishonor in being forced by a superior power into slavery, but it is an eternal disgrace to voluntarily surrender one’s liberty for a filthy bowl of oatmeal and promise of security by liars.” - Link to Website


Yoga and Christianity: More Than What Meets the Eye - New Book Warns of Possible Dangers - By Father John Flynn, LC - The popularity of yoga and various forms of Eastern philosophies and meditation methods has grown enormously in recent years. Questions remain, however, as to what extent they are compatible with Christianity. … These techniques are widely recommended as being good for fitness and relaxation, and few would at first see anything dangerous about them, Bishop Julian Porteous, one of Sydney's auxiliary bishops, commented in his foreword to the book.


However, he warned, "The world into which the practitioner is introduced is inimical to the Christian faith."  - Link to Website

But he took over my will and my mind now I want to get rid if it. How do I get rid of it? We have an increase in that phenomenon which I never thought I would see. Some don’t even believe in God, some are Jewish, are Buddhist, some are Protestant, some are Catholic. There is no profile of the possessable person. If it has been taken up [intervention] has been taken up, then your only recourse is exorcism that we know of.

Clifford May: Hamas launches its rockets with one goal: genocide - By Cilfford D. May - Israel is surrounded by Muslim-majority states 650 times its size and 60 times its population. Most of those states refuse even to recognize Israel …


Israel is surrounded by Muslim-majority states 650 times its size and 60 times its population. Most of those states refuse even to recognize Israel. Some go further. Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, threatens genocide: "Israel must be burned to the ground and made to disappear from the face of the Earth."


Hamas' charter is equally blunt: "Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them)." Israel is a vital link in what the charter calls "the chain of Jihad." Hamas cleric Yunis Al-Astal elaborated in a 2008 sermon:


"Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinople was, as was prophesized by our Prophet Muhammad. Today, Rome is the capital of the Catholics, or the Crusader capital ... this capital of theirs will be an advanced post for the Islamic conquests, which will spread through Europe in its entirety, and then will turn to the two Americas, and even Eastern Europe." - Link to Website

Ugandan president repents of personal, national sins 'We confess idolatry, witchcraft, political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue' – by Michael Carl – … I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness,” Museveni prayed.


“We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation. We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal,” Museveni said.


“Forgive us of sins of pride, tribalism and sectarianism; sins of laziness, indifference and irresponsibility; sins of corruption and bribery that have eroded our national resources; sins of sexual immorality, drunkenness and debauchery; sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and revenge; sins of injustice, oppression and exploitation; sins of rebellion, insubordination, strife and conflict,” Museveni prayed. …


The Museveni prayer is a model for all Christian leaders in the world. The leaders of the West have declined in proportion to their degree of rejection of God,” Lively said.


Lively also believes Uganda will rise as a major African power as America continues to decline. He uses Britain as an example.


“Britain was at its height as a world power when it honored God as the Ugandan president has just done. America’s greatness has similarly diminished as we have shifted from a Christian to a secular-humanist country. But watch now for Uganda to be blessed by God for their desire to be His,” Lively said. - Link to Website


4th Straight Year: Obama Thanksgiving Resolution Doesn’t Thank God - Steven Ertel - For the fourth straight year, the Thanksgiving resolution from President Barack Obama fails to actually thank God — which is the fundamental reason why Thanksgiving is observed.

That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation.”

Following the recent November 6th, 2012 Presidential election, I submit to the read for spiritual discernment, the following article by Jeffry R. Nyquist written from back in 2004. Following George H. Bush as President there was William J. Clinton and George W. Bush. George W. was the first President of the United States. Was George W. the last?


A Note After the Passing of President’s Day (February 19, 2004) – by Jeffry R. Nyquist - Providence: God, conceived of as guiding men as a race and as individuals to ends he has in view for them or as preserving individuals from danger through his prescience, loving care, or intervention.


Once upon a time the United States had a president named George W. who was sometimes suspected of stupidity. It was alleged that George W. dozed during cabinet meetings, rarely read reports and didn't write his own speeches. According to administration insiders, George W. "was, in general, an illiterate, intellectually incompetent cipher who was propped up in public by his staff." (See Joseph J. Ellis's account, The Passionate Sage, p. 69.)


The president so described was George Washington and not George W. Bush. …   


Washington believed in the protecting hand of Providence and he stated this belief in his First Inaugural Address, in which he said "it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official Act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the Universe, who presides in the Councils of Nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect. ..." ... Is some supernatural agency in charge of history?


In closing, I will outrage the skeptics further by mentioning a dream I experienced 23 years ago. In the dream I saw the future presidents of the United States. Their portraits were lined side by side from left to right. The first in order was Ronald Reagan who had just been elected. The second was George H. W. Bush. The next two faces I did not recognize. An old man was present in the dream and I turned to him. "Where are the others?" I asked, wanting to see the rest of the future presidents. "There are no others," he replied. "After these the Republic ends."


I don't know whether my dream was inspired by a higher power, or whether it occurred after eating a bad pizza. - Link to Website

Christian Pastors Issue Dire Warnings After Obama Win: God ‘Will Judge Sin’ & ‘It Won’t Be Pretty’ - “Unless we’re willing to repent for our sins, we will stand in [God's] judgment,” he proclaimed. “I want to warn America: God is coming around. He will judge sin, and it won’t be pretty.” – by Billy Hallowell - Link to Website


Surprise! We voted for God's judgment – by Pat Boone - Over 56 million voted one way, for one direction, for one set of principles – and some 58 million voted for an entirely different set. And so the larger group takes all of us, the whole of America, in their chosen direction.


Without going into all the specifics, the lesser number voted for fiscal responsibility, limited government, respect for the Constitution and law itself, proven experience in management and success in financial matters, and adherence to time-honored, biblical values. For strong military defense, commitment to Israel and traditional families. Dull stuff like that.


The larger number (though just enough to gain dominance) enthusiastically voted for Big Brother socialist government, “redistributing the wealth,” anti-biblical values, geometric growth in national debt, a weak vacillating defense and a sapped, hamstrung military, relativistic disdain for the law and the Constitution itself, and more Marxists and socialists appointed to positions of power – including our Supreme Court – in the months ahead.  - Link to Website

The came not as conquers, but as believers in the promise of America. .. Topping their wish-list was freedom of religion. “Render unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar; unto God what belongs to God”! In America, their adopted land, there would be no Caesar! Ever!


Will there be for our children; our grandchildren, soon, an American Caesar? Will we leave to our progeny the freedoms left to us, or, instead bend to the iron will-be Caesar, a wolf in sheep’s clothing? … Barack Obama is becoming the American Caesar... demanding we forget the cross! ... demanding we learn his Way!! … demanding we learn to obey!!!


Each of us … must recall the concluding words for the Lord’s Prayer … “Deliver us from evil”; the concluding words of America: Our Fathers’ God to Thee Author of Liberty…  - Link to Website


Bishop orders priests to read anti-Obama letter at Sunday sermons – by Manya A. Brachear - … "Today, Catholic politicians, bureaucrats, and their electoral supporters who callously enable the destruction of innocent human life in the womb also thereby reject Jesus as their Lord," Jenky added. "They are objectively guilty of grave sin.


"Earlier this year, Jenky delivered a controversial homily criticizing the contraception mandate. The bishop included Obama's policies in a list of historic challenges the Catholic Church has overcome in previous centuries, including Hitler and Stalin's campaigns. …


 "Again, I am not telling you which party or which candidates to vote for or against," he said. "But I am saying that you need to think and pray very carefully about your vote, because a vote for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful makes you morally complicit and places the eternal salvation of your own soul in serious jeopardy." - Link to Website


Does Bible code predict President Romney? Hebrew expert claims Mitt's destiny embedded in Scripture – by Joe Kovacs – A well-known Bible-code researcher … claims hidden texts in the Holy Bible indicate Mitt Romney will be America’s next president.


Moshe Aharon Shak, an orthodox Jew and author of “Bible Codes Breakthrough,” has produced a series of videos on YouTube with his modern analysis of Scripture.


For those not familiar with Bible codes, they are said to be secret messages embedded in the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament.


Those who claim the codes’ validity say they disclose information about both the past, as well as the future. - Link to Website

"Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state.”

— Vladimir Lenin (1870-1924) Communist Dictator of the USSR who lead the Bolshevik Revolution


"One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It's very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. ... Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it."

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States


"Are you willing to spend time studying the issues, making yourself aware, and then conveying that information to family and friends? Will you resist the temptation to get a government handout for your community? Realize that the doctor's fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can't socialize the doctors without socializing the patients. Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he'll eat you last."

— Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th President of the United States

Imperfect Candidates and the Christian Vote – by Gary Kelly - Would you have fought against tyranny in 1776? Was not declaring independence from tyranny, “Biblically-based?” Read the grievances in the Declaration and see how many are again prevalent today.  I am disturbed by how a Christian could consider allowing the Obamanation to continue! Will we be better off with Romney or Obama? Until someone is on the ballot that meets all Biblically-based requirements are not Christians committed to working and voting against the most evil choice? Are not Christians to continue to spiritually and politically confront unrighteousness and challenge Christian complacency? This is not the same America when candidates were Christians and most voters were Christians. - Link to Website

What About the Children? American College of Pediatricians Warns Against Same-Sex Families – by Tom McFeely - Dawn Stefanowicz says she knows from personal experience that what the American College of Pediatricians recommends is true. She is a Canadian woman who grew up in a homosexual household. She says Americans wouldn’t support same-sex “marriage” if they understood how it can harm children.


… one organization that does not endorse homosexual parenting is the American College of Pediatricians. “The environment in which children are reared is absolutely critical to their development,” the college states in a position statement about homosexual parenting posted in the “Position Statements” section of its website, acpeds.org.


“Given the current body of research, the American College of Pediatricians believes it is inappropriate, potentially hazardous to children, and dangerously irresponsible to change the age-old prohibition on homosexual parenting, whether by adoption, foster care, or by reproductive manipulation,” it says. “This position is rooted in the best available science.” - Link to Website

Same-Sex “Marriage” – Apples, Oranges & Oxymorons – by Cheryl Pass - The legal standing of natural law is what is being shredded in the instance of homosexual “marriage.” Natural law is the basis for Jefferson’s assertions in the Declaration of Independence.


“Nature has written her moral laws on the head and heart of every rational and honest man, where man may read them for himself. If ever you are about to say anything amiss, or to do anything wrong, consider beforehand you will feel something within you which will tell you it is wrong, and ought not to be said or done. This is your conscience, and be sure and obey it… Conscience is the only sure clue which will eternally guide a man clear of all his doubts and inconsistencies.”

—  Thomas Jefferson


Again, I would rather not be having this discussion. It’s ridiculous on its face, and greatly damaging in all aspects to our society. The socialists in our government have been trying to rid our nation of our common natural law since the Progressive movement started over 100 years ago. This is but one more evidence of that. Gay marriage is not a right that can be given by a socialist government. Our rights don’t come from government. It is nothing more than another tool to take down our natural rights as given by Our Creator as stated by Jefferson in the Declaration. But even if you don’t subscribe to that substantiation, you can see there are many other considerations making gay marriage a very bad idea.  - Link to Website


Natural Law


The ultimate source of Constitutional Law


“Maker is called the law of nature.... This law of nature...is of course superior to any other.... No human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this: and such of them as are valid derive all their force...from this original."

—  Sir William Blackstone (Eminent English Jurist)


The Founders DID NOT establish the Constitution for the purpose of granting rights. Rather, they established this government of laws (not a government of men) in order to secure each person's Creator­ endowed rights to life, liberty, and property. Only in America, did a nation's founders recognize that rights, though endowed by the Creator as unalienable prerogatives, would not be sustained in society unless they were protected under a code of law which was itself in harmony with a higher law. They called it "natural law," or "Nature's law." Such law is the ultimate source and established limit for all of man's laws and is intended to protect each of these natural rights for all of mankind. The Declaration of Independence of 1776 established the premise that in America a people might assume the station "to which the laws of Nature and Nature's God entitle them.."  - Link to Website


Obama and the Liberals Meet - The 40 year Factor - by Rev Michael Bresciani - … Many prophecies from every kind of preacher, prophet and priest have been cast for the period of time we are coming to.

Passages of scripture like this, “That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee,” (De 9: 10) are found throughout the bible and while they are totally ignored, God is counting every precious soul that we are discarding like so much refuse and waste material. By 2013 America’s death toll for unborn children will be well over 60,000,000 that is - sixty million. Say it out loud and ponder it for a few minutes before going on to anything else.

Beck Speaks to 143,000 Catholics About Voting & Politics During Tele-Townhall: ‘God Will Not Hold Us Guiltless’ – by Billy Hallowell – … Beck began with the rise of anti-Semitism and anti-Catholicism that has developed of late, while highlighting the fact that these are both issues he’s warned about in the past. He then moved on to one of the central tenets of the Catholic faith that has been manipulated by the left — social justice.


“What has happened over the last 100 years in the social justice movement…there’s a fundamental misunderstanding of what social justice is,” Beck explained. “Social justice, as the pontiff would [see] it, is your responsibility as an individual to listen to the gospel and then act — go and serve.”


However, this is radically different from the worldview that liberals generally embrace. The radio and television host contended that the version of social justice that many progressives tout is incorrectly based on the government acting “on your behalf.” ...

“It is not easy to determine who are the more criminal.

— Jonathan Mayew (1720-1766) Preacher in The First Great Spiritual Awakening


“When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, just men who will rule in the fear of God. The preservation of [our] republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded.”

“But the time has come that Christians [& citizens] must vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics. They must let the world see that the Church will uphold no man in office who is known to be a knave, or an adulterer, or a Sabbath-breaker, or a gambler, or a drunkard. Such is the spread of intelligence and the facility of communication in our country, that every man can know for whom he gives his vote. And if he will give his vote only for honest men, the country will be obliged to have upright rulers. All parties will be compelled to put up honest men as candidates. Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter. But the time has come when they must act differently. .... "God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the Church will take right ground. Politics are a part of a religion in such a country as this, and Christians [& citizens] must do their duty to the country as a part of their duty to God. It seems sometimes as if the foundations of the nation are becoming rotten, and Christians seem to act as if they think God does not see what they do in politics.

It’s the Devil, Stupid – by Val Bianco - Like it or not, our country was founded on and sustained by the notion of a Creator. Furthermore our founding documents affirm that this Creator endowed us with certain inalienable rights. Our system of jurisprudence was rooted in English common law, which itself was dependent upon the informed discretion of individual judges to establish legal precedent.


Simply stated, the concept of common law relies upon the year in and year out cumulative good judgment of the judges. The question is, what was the intended basis for that good judgment? This question brings us all the way back to the first precept of law stated by St. Thomas Aquinas himself, that “good is to be done and pursued, and evil is to be avoided.” In other words, we are brought back to “The Natural Law.” - Link to Website

Revolution


From the book Revolution and Counter-Revolution by Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira (1959)  A rebellion in spirit and human action that originates from the “deepest recesses of the soul and the culture of Western man” producing convulsions of a progressive movement.


“This fundamental tendency to rebel can, at certain moments, receive the consent of the free will. Fallen man sins thus, violating one or more of the Commandments. But this rebellion can go further and reach a point of a more or less unconfessed hatred of the very moral order as a whole. This hatred, which is essentially revolutionary, can generate doctrinal errors and even to the conscious and explicit profession of principles contrary to Moral Law and revealed doctrine as such, which constitutes a sin against the Holy Ghost. When this hatred began to direct the deepest tendencies of Western history, the Revolution began. … By its nature, this hatred cannot be reduced simply to a doctrinal system: It is disorderly passion exacerbated to and extremely high degree.” ...


“In one way or another, whether placing all its confidence in the individual alone, the masses, or the State, it is in man that the Revolution trusts. Man, self-sufficient thanks to science and technology, can resolve all his problems, eliminate pain, poverty, ignorance, insecurity, in short, everything we refer to as the effect of Original or actual sin.


The utopia toward which the Revolution is leading is a world whose countries, united in a universal republic, are but geographical designations, a world with neither social nor economics inequalities, run by science and technology, by propaganda and psychology, in order to attain, without the supernatural, the definitive happiness of man.


In such a world, the Redemption of Our Lord Jesus Christ has no place; for man will have overcome evil with science and will have made the earth a technologically delightful paradise. And he will hope to overcome death one day by the indefinite prolongation of life.”  ...


“The Revolution attacks Christian civilization in a manner that is more or less like a certain tree of the Brazilian forest. This tree, the strangler fig Urostigmaolearia, by wrapping itself round the trunk of another tree, completely covers it and kills it. In its “moderate” and low-velocity currents, the Revolution approached Christian civilization in order to wrap itself around it and kill it.”  


"… the Revolution was born from an explosion of disorderly passions that is leading to the total destruction of temporal society, the complete subversion of the moral order, the denial of God. The great target of the Revolution is, then, the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ, the infallible teacher of the Truth, the guardian of the Natural Law, and, therefore, the ultimate foundation of temporal order itself."


“If the Revolution is disorder, the Counter-Revolution is the restoration of Order.”

— Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira (1908-1995) Brazilian politician who promoted the values of Christian Civilization.

From the book End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life by Fr. Charles Arminjon, originally published in 1881 in French.


"They enlist in the war against the Church all the hateful corruption, all the hypocrisies anxious to drop their masks, all the hostile sciences, all the shady and godless politics. The revolution boldly raises its standard against religion, property, and the family; saps the foundations of the social structure and on every front. The press, freed from every restraint, disseminates the most subversive doctrines and the deadliest poisons in a thousand organs."

Does U.N.’s Agenda 21 Education Mandate Push Common Core in USA? What Does Common Core Have To Do With the U.N.’s Agenda 21 ?


 – And Why Should You Care?


There’s an interesting article about Obama’s call for the U.S. to pay for education of the world.  It’s ”A Global Fund for Education: Achieving Education for All” that you can read in full here:  http://www.brookings.edu/research/papers/2009/08/education-gartner


Its summary states: “In order to realize the world’s commitment to ensuring education for all by 2015, important innovations and reforms will be needed in the governance and financing of global education. In 2008, Presidential Candidate Barack Obama committed to making sure that every child has the chance to learn by creating a Global Fund for Education. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has recently called for a new architecture of global cooperation…  A new Global Fund for Education… must be capable of mobilizing the approximately $7 billion annually still needed to achieve education for all, …


Both the U.N.’s educational goals (via UNESCO and “Education for All” ) and “Common Core” do sound very appealing on the surface.  Each seeks to educate by teaching the exact same standards to all children (and adults) on a national or a global scale.  But both supercede local control over what is taught to students, and both dismiss the validity and importance of the U.S. Constitution implicitly. ...

The Results of Radicalism in Chicago's Education System – By Greg Lewis - You've got a mouthful of gimme, a hand full of much obliged." Imposition of the left's education philosophy has a long history in the U.S., in Chicago and elsewhere. It involves the application of many of the principles of behavior modification which Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov pioneered to the classroom, which in turn has evolved during the past century into a place where changing behaviors and attitudes of students have replaced learning, and where trying to ensure equal "outcomes" for all students has replaced encouraging students to achieve at as high a level as possible. The classroom has become the bastion of groupthink and the enemy of intellectual freedom. We have the left, and its champions of intellectual tyranny, to thank for that.  - Link to Website

Russian ships displayed at DNC tribute to vets – by Sam Fellman – (was the photo of the Russian ships there by accident, deliberately, or there by divine hand in warning?) On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, a retired Navy four-star took the stage to pay tribute to veterans. Behind him, on a giant screen, the image of four hulking warships reinforced his patriotic message.


But there was a big mistake in the stirring backdrop: those are Russian warships. …


the fact they are Russian ships is not in doubt. In addition to the ship’s radar arrays and hulls, which are dissimilar from U.S. warships, the photo features one more give-away: a large white flag with a blue ‘X’ at the ships’ sterns.

'A fearful master': Obama should read Washington – Editorial – Union Leader –  President Obama campaigns at Strawbery Banke in Portsmouth today. The last sitting President to visit Strawbery Banke was George Washington, who wrote, “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master.” President Obama holds the opposite view. Government, to Obama and his party, is neither troublesome nor fearful, but beneficent. At the Democratic National Convention this week, speaker after speaker extolled the virtues not just of government, but of a bold, activist government that energetically directs the behaviors of the American people in the name of promoting the public good. ...


A government that grants you your rights is a government that can revoke them. A government that grants you your prosperity is a government that can demand you “give back” what you have earned, to use Obama's own words. …


The candidate with the radical view of government, as columnist George Will has eloquently written, is the current President, who views restraints on government power as antiquated obstacles foolishly hindering his pursuit of a government-created and -directed Utopia.


Just remember, one man's Utopia is another man's Hell. Power given to the state for the purpose of molding society into one man's image of perfection some day will be used by those with very different ideas to shape a different society. Once the shackles keeping it in servitude are removed, it quickly becomes a master. The Founders were right to fear that. Obama is foolish not to. - Link to Website

Obamanation  (One Painting That Says It All) -  by Jon McNaughton - I chose to use an undisclosed studio so I could paint privately, without interruption, to focus on the task of embedding in a single painting all the subtle, mindless, radical and dangerous atrocities of the Obama administration.


I am just one person, a citizen of this country using my first amendment rights to speak out through my art.  This is my declaration that we have never had a president do more to harm our country than Barack Obama.


To those who scoff or wish to trivialize this painting, I challenge you… I DARE YOU… study the links of the various symbols and metaphors that you see.  There are over 60 in the painting.  No person can analyze this image and learn about these facts and still, in good conscience, vote for Obama in 2012.


I do not hate Obama, but I hate the fact that I had to paint this picture.  Has the painting gone too far?  I knew when I did this that most Obama supporters would reject what I have done.  But as a Conservative, I’m fed up with the corruption in Washington.  And I’m sick of the political correctness that has derailed our country!


My art is an expression of the times in which I live and people will know how Jon McNaughton felt about being alive in America in 2012.

Take the Challenge!  If you still choose Obama, congratulations…you’re a part of the Obamanation. - Link to Website

Isaac, of course, is a biblical name … The fact the events are seven years apart is very significant as this number is biblically important.

East Coast earthquake created a 'new normal' – AP - MINERAL, Va. — When the "Big One" rocked the East Coast one year ago, the earthquake centered on this rural Virginia town cracked ceiling tiles and damaged two local school buildings so badly that they had to be shuttered for good. Now as the academic year gets under way, students are reciting a new safety mantra: Drop, cover, and hold on.


Earthquake drills are now as ubiquitous as fire drills at Louisa County schools in central Virginia, where 4,600 students were attending classes when the 5.8-magnitude quake struck nearby on Aug. 23, 2011. Miraculously, no one was seriously hurt.


"It's the new normal," Superintendent Deborah D. Pettit said of the earthquake drills.

The United States must atone for her sins. It was an accepted truth understood by earlier generations in the country’s history, that God blesses those nations who acknowledge Him, His providence and follow His laws.


It was he who created man in the beginning, and he left him in the power of his own inclination. If you will, you can keep the commandments, and to act faithfully is a matter of your own choice. He has placed before you fire and water: stretch out your hand for whichever you wish. Before a man are life and death, and whichever he chooses will be given to him. For great is the wisdom of the Lord; he is mighty in power and sees everything; his eyes are on those who fear him, and he knows every deed of man. He has not commanded any one to be ungodly, and he has not given any one permission to sin.

— Sirach 15:14-20 RSV


As people have souls and are judged for their sins, so too do countries as a collective of its people have a soul, and are thus judged and must atone for their sins." ....

Shannon McGinley: Religious liberty is under attack - by Shannon McGinley - … Whether it’s a leftist lunatic with a gun or the government with its laws and regulations, liberals are now using coercion in an attempt to drive faith out of the lives of citizens and business owners. It is not politically correct, or physically safe for that matter, for citizens to openly express their deeply held religious beliefs, unless of course they are practicing secular humanism, which is now the well-established religion of our government.


Thanks to the President and his Obamacare law, the government is now forcing business owners to violate their deepest-held beliefs just to make a living. This isn’t about access to contraception or abortion pills, two medical treatments that are available to people who want to pay for them. This is about government inventing a right to force religious people to pay for that contraception or those abortion pills even if they morally object.

But let me ask you, my dear Marquis, in such an enlightened, such a liberal age, how is it possible the great maritime powers of Europe should submit to pay an annual tribute to the little piratical states of Barbary? Would to Heaven we had a navy able to reform those enemies to mankind, or crush them into non-existence.

Emanuel goes after Chick-fil-A for boss’ anti-gay views – By Fan Spielman – (Christian Persecution – This article reminds me of the book 1984 by George Orwell, where the “thought police” and government and state through “reality control,” “newspeak and doublethink” control peoples lives dictating what is “right and wrong thinking.”)


The anti-gay views openly espoused by the president of a fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches have run afoul of Mayor Rahm Emanuel and a local alderman, who are determined to block Chick-fil-A from expanding in Chicago. … Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy was quoted last week as saying he was “guilty as charged” for supporting, what he called the “biblical definition” of marriage as between a man and a woman.

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,” Cathy was quoted as saying.


Appearing on the Ken Coleman Show, Cathy was further quoted as saying, “I think we’re inviting God’s judgment when we shake our fist at him, you know, [saying], ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ And I pray on God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we would have the audacity to try and redefine what marriage is all about.”  - Link to Website

Boston Mayor Blocks Chick-fil-A Franchise from City over Homophobic Attitude – By Eliana Dockterman – (Christian Persecution) The people of Boston will have to purchase their chicken sandwiches elsewhere: Mayor Thomas M. Menino has sworn that the franchise will have to fight city hall to bring its fast-food empire to Boston after Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, said gay marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.” The Atlanta-based chain is hoping to open a restaurant in a popular tourist spot near the Freedom Trail — a rather ironic choice in Menino’s eyes.


“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston,” Menino told the Boston Herald on Thursday. “You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against the population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion. That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.” - Link to Website


Note to Mayor Thomas M. Menino: The Founding Fathers were Christian. The revolutionary war was over religious freedom and government that had over stepped its bounds. It was not as much over taxes. That is why taxes is at the bottom of complaints against the King in the Declaration of Independence. The Founding Fathers would have agreed with Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy.  


If the company doesn’t discriminate against who they hire and who the serve, where is the discrimination? So the real discrimination is by elected officials ("the thought police") against citizens those who hold Christian values. Below are quotes from a few Boston patriots Mr. Mayor you may recognize.


“It is in the interest of tyrants to reduce the people to ignorance and vice. For they cannot live in any country where virtue and knowledge prevail. The religion and public liberty of a people are intimately connected; their interests are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately; and therefore they rise and fall together. For this reason, it is always observable, that those who are combin'd to destroy the people's liberties, practice every art to poison their morals.”

— Samuel Adams (1722–1803) Father of the American Revolution, Patriot and Statesman


 “Sensible of the importance of Christian piety and virtue to the order and happiness of a state, I cannot but earnestly commend to you every measure for their support and encouragement … Manners, by which not only the freedom, but the very existence of the republics, are greatly affected, depend much upon the public institutions of religion and the good education of youth; in both these instances our fathers laid wise foundations, for which their posterity have had reason to bless their memory.”

— John Hancock, (1737-1793) Boston Merchant, Founding Father & Patriot


“As the safety and prosperity of nations ultimately and essentially depend on the protection and the blessing of Almighty God, and the national acknowledgment of this truth is not only an indispensable duty which the people owe to Him, but a duty whose natural influence is favorable to the promotion of that morality and piety without which social happiness can not exist nor the blessings of a free government be enjoyed.”

— John Adams (1797-1801) Second President of the United States and Patriot.

Agriculture Secretary tells White House drought getting worse - By Russ Bilich -  …. While USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack said he was praying everyday for rain, he told Obama the drought is not as bad as in the last great drought of 1988. "I get on my knees everyday and I'm saying an extra prayer right now," Vilsack said. "If I had a rain prayer or a rain dance I could do, I would do it."  In his briefing to President Obama, Vilsack said that the drought of historic proportions will shrink this year's harvest of corn and soybeans.  now affecting 61 percent of the U.S. land mass. … The U.S. drought is also expected to be felt worldwide as the world's biggest grain exporter struggles to get the crops off the field and to market. - Link to Website

(From Spirit Daily) Fire and heat -- currently haunting North America -- are only one aspect of these signs. But it is there before our eyes -- in the news or right outside our windows. Last weekend, more than three million (some said five million) were without power after storms rocked the nation from Indiana to Virginia and North Carolina: the Washington D.C. area, perhaps tellingly, remains in the throes of outages.


This followed a heat wave that broken thousands of records, many of them all-time ones, including 112 degrees in Kansas. A hundred-degree plus temperatures were expected in areas across 25 states, a heat scenario impacting 47 million people.


As of Thursday (June 28, 2012) more than 20,900 local record highs have been broken to date this year.


Might it be that the chastisements will include a simple ratcheting up (or down) of global temperatures? Imagine if last week's "oven" (severe heat advisories in twenty-five states) turned out to be tremendously extended. A shame it is, that politicization, from left and right, has obscured (and obfuscated) various signs. As we have stated so many times, it is a climate gyration; it can go in either direction; we are in an erratic time, reflecting our own morality. We believe most of it has been caused by natural forces. Those forces are controlled by the Lord.  - Link to Website

While those skills are still with you, perhaps you would like to put them to work studying the start of compulsory government education in the early part of the last century. Do you really think that the goal of our compulsory government education system has been to actually educate you?


Did you study H. L. Mencken? In 1924 he wrote an article for the American Mercury where he defined the true aim of our then-fledgling system of education. Listen carefully:The aim of public education is not to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. ... Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim ... is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is the aim in the United States and that is its aim everywhere else.


Think about this. Who owns the schools? The government. Who mandates attendance? The government. Who staffs the schools? The government ... with government workers. Who directs the work of the schools? The government. Can you see where it is in the best interests of government to suppress dissent and originality?

As liberty and religious liberty in America wanes.


Fortnight for Freedom


The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has called for a “Fortnight for Freedom,” a 14-day period of prayer, education, and action in support of religious freedom, from June 21 to July 4. The event begins with the vigil of the Feasts of St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More and ends with Independence Day. This special period of prayer, study, catechesis, and public action is intended to emphasize both our Christian and American heritage of liberty.


To open the Fortnight for Freedom, a Mass will be held on June 21 at 7:00 p.m. in Baltimore, Maryland at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, celebrated by Archbishop William E. Lori of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. On July 4 at 12:10 p.m. at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Cardinal Donald Wuerl of the Archdiocese Washington will celebrate Mass, and the homilist will be Archbishop Charles Chaput, OFM Cap of Philadelphia. The Mass on July 4 will be televised nationwide on the EWTN cable network.


In addition to following the national Fortnight for Freedom events, here are ideas for recognizing this special period of prayer and education in your own parish:


Visit www.fortnight4freedom.org. The USCCB will be updating this site with prayer resources, including a prayer for each day of the Fortnight. This website also includes ideas from other dioceses and will be updated to provide educational resources.


Incorporate a prayer for religious liberty. All parishes are encouraged to incorporate a prayer for religious liberty during liturgically appropriate times on the weekends of June 23-24 and June 30-July 1. There are a number of prayers posted on the www.fortnight4freedom.org website. The following prayer was included in the statement Our First, Our Most Cherished Liberty released by the USCCB:


Almighty God, Father of all nations, for freedom you have set us free in Christ Jesus (Gal 5:1).


We praise and bless you for the gift of religious liberty, the foundation of human rights, justice, and the common good.


Grant to our leaders the wisdom to protect and promote our liberties; by your grace may we have the courage to defend them, for ourselves and for all those who live in this blessed land.


We ask this through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, our patroness, and in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, with whom you live and reign, one God, forever and ever. Amen.


Parishes also may wish to incorporate this prayer for religious liberty into meetings, Eucharistic adorations, and other parish activities. Parishes also may wish to include general intercessions such as:


For the success of the Church’s efforts to defend religious freedom in this country and abroad, we pray to the Lord.


That religious freedom, our nation’s first and most cherished liberty, will be defended strongly by our political leaders and all citizens, we pray to the Lord.


Hold a prayer service during the Fortnight for Freedom. Visit the USCCB's website for Prayer Resources, including prayer cards and prayers of the faithful as well as prayers for our nation and leaders. Prayer resources are available in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.


Educate others about religious liberty issues by distributing the USCCB’s educational bulletin inserts on religious freedom (CLICK HERE for the current bulletin for June and additional bulletin inserts will be updated on this webpage). Inform parishioners through bulletin announcements, for example:

De Tocqueville continued: "The Americans combine the notions of Christianity and of liberty so intimately in their minds, that it is impossible to make them conceive the one without the other...

Earth Day… Pagan Worship Of The Earth and Marxism - J.D. Longstreet - The annual, global, orgasmic, daisy chain of paganism is complete for another year. I refer, of course to—Earth Day.


Quite likely the oldest religion of all, Paganism has been on display throughout this week just ending—even in the religious communities supposedly dedicated to the worship of the “one true God.” Earth Day, itself, is rooted deeply in godless socialism. Vladimir Lenin is the Father/Founder of Earth Day! Why, then, will millions of Christians celebrate it in their churches this Sunday? … As our public educational system has devolved into an indoctrination system it is teaching just enough… and demanding the students learn just enough… to guarantee the institution continues to receive public funds. As a result, the level of education concerning real science has all but disappeared from our curricula. Even where it is still taught… it has been broken down to the level of the lowest performing student in the class. Now we have a citizenry, that is functionally illiterate of basic science.


Couple the decline of our educational systems, world wide, (but especially in the United States) with the divestiture by “The Church” of its duty to teach the one true God—and the hook is set.

Paul Harvey's warning to America - “If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’ -  Link to Website

“Elections belong to the people. It is their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”

— Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) Sixteenth President of the United States


God cannot sustain this free and blessed country, which we love and pray for, unless the Church will take right ground. Politics are a part of a religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to the country as a part of their duty to God. It seems sometimes as if the foundations of the nation are becoming rotten, and Christians seem to act as if they think God does not see what they do in politics. But I tell you He does see it, and He (God)  will bless or curse this nation, according to the course they take.

— Charles G. Finney (1792-1792) Minister in the Second Great Awakening

Department of Education: Catholic Schools Beat Public Schools – By Terence P. Jeffery -  … If the Catholic school in your community beat the public school in basketball by 20 points, partisans of both teams would deem it a rout. If the Catholic school beat the public school by similar margins year after year, people would wonder what was wrong with the public-school basketball program. Were the coaches incompetent? Did they not care about instilling excellence in their teams?


Well, in the Department of Education's national eighth-grade reading test, the Catholic schools not only routed the public schools by 20 points last year, they have made a habit of such routs. …-  Link to Website


Obama: Violating Much More than Conscience - by Rev Michael Bresciani, February 13, 2012 - … There is only one answer that can be given to the president at this point of impasse and it is obvious. Now 65 million Catholics can show their faith in November by voting for Mr. Obama’s opponent in the presidential race. For Catholics the choice has come down to Benedict or Barack for Protestants the choice will be between the Bible or Barack. The voting booth will be the battle ground and the outcome will determine the very future of our nation.


Both Protestant and Catholic will now have to decide if they are going to be “respecters’ of persons” or faithful to their God. This should not be a difficult choice for the faithful, but it will no doubt be a costly choice for the president in his bid for re-election.


A government that ignores its own Constitutional principles and its very foundation, will find it easy to disregard the laws of God and in so doing will have reduced its citizens to a piece of bread when it asks them to abandon their faith for a law or mandate that goes against God, his word or his church. The choice to stand as men is now ours alone to make.   -  Link to Website

Webster’s 1828 dictionary definition


atheist – One who disbelieves the existence of a God, or Supreme intelligent Being.


“He is the best friend to American liberty, who is most sincere and active in promoting true and undefiled religion, and who set himself with the greatest firmness to bear down on profanity and immorality of every kind.

— John Witherspoon (1722-1794) Educator, Economist, Minister, Writer & Founding Father

“In totalitarian governments, they would love our system,” he told an ABC affiliate. “This is what Hitler and Mussolini and all those tried to establish - a monolith so all the children would be educated in one set of beliefs and one way of doing things.” ... -  Link to Website

"It is a misfortune incident to republican government, though in a less degree than to other governments, that those who administer it, may forget their obligations to their constituents, and prove unfaithful to their important trust."

— James Madison (1751-1836) Father of the Constitution, 4th President of the United States
