The Teaching of American History: Promise and Performance – The appalling results of de-emphasizing the study of U.S. history in elementary and secondary schools have become painfully obvious in recent years. In the most recent round of the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only one fourth of American schoolchildren tested as proficient in their knowledge of U.S. history. A study in Arizona found that only 3.5 percent of high school students could pass the test of civic knowledge given to immigrants seeking to become U.S. citizens.

An analysis of adults’ knowledge of the American Revolution and the Founding of the United States exposed the sad reality that while 60 percent of respondents knew how many children “Jon and Kate” of reality-TV fame have, only slightly more than one-half could correctly identify James Madison as the “Father of the Constitution.” ..  –  Link to Website

66% Celebrate Christmas As A Religious Holiday – Rasmussen Reports – Sixty-six percent (66%) of Americans celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that another 20% celebrate the event as a secular holiday.

Of those who celebrate Christmas, 81% believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God sent to earth to die for our sins and 72% say Jesus was born to a virgin.

Among all Americans, whether they celebrate Christmas or not, 82% say the person known to history as Jesus Christ actually walked the earth 2,000 years ago. Only three percent (3%) say he did not and 15% aren’t sure. …  –  Link to Website

“Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of power; but they cannot justify it, even if we were sure that they existed. It is hardly too strong to say, that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intention, real or pretended. …Human beings, we may be assured, will generally exercise power when they can get it; and they will exercise it most undoubtedly, in popular governments, under pretences of public safety or high public interest. It may be very possible that good intentions do really sometimes exist when constitutional restraints are disregarded. There are men, in all ages, who mean to exercise power usefully; but who mean to exercise it. They mean to govern well; but they mean to govern. They promise to be kind masters; but they mean to be masters.”

— Daniel Webster (1782-1852) Author, Lawyer and Patriot

NJ Teacher Tells Girl to Put Away Bible – A teacher at the Madison Park Elementary School in Old Bridge, N.J., told a 3rd grader that the Bible was not appropriate reading material for quiet time, and ordered the girl to put the book away, according to the girl’s parents. …

Michelle Jordat says her daughter, Mariah, cried when the teacher told her to put away the Bible. Jordat says her daughter’s feelings were hurt and she was confused. “This was injustice,” Jordat says. “No other child has to go through this again.” Jordat accepted the principal’s apology, but wants something in writing stating that reading the Bible is OK during personal reading time. She also says she will speak to a lawyer. –  Link to Website

Religious Liberty – In December 1944, American soldiers were fighting desperately against the last great German offensive of World War II, the Battle of the Bulge. Men were dying in large numbers. The counterattack had bogged down in mud and rain. Planes could not fly because of low clouds. General George Patton, commander of the Third Army, called his chaplain into his headquarters and said:

Chaplain, I want you to publish a prayer for good weather. I’m tired of these soldiers having to fight mud and floods as well as Germans. See if we can’t get God to work on our side. …

Patton’s memoirs tells what happened next: “The day after the prayer was issued, the weather cleared and remained perfect for about six days. Enough to allow the Allies to break the backbone of the German offensive and turn a temporary setback for the Allies into a crushing defeat for the enemy. –  Link to Website

Congressional Health Care Sunday?  – On Sunday, December 6, 2009, President Obama traveled to Capitol Hill to speak to the Senate Democrat Caucus to rally their support for the federal government health care seizure and takeover plan. Following that lobbying meeting with the President, Senate leader Harry Reid took the Senate into an extremely rare Sunday session where they continued debating the many problems with the health care bill, including required abortion coverage and the public option issue.

Sunday sessions have been extremely rare because of the U. S. Constitution’s Article I “Sundays Excepted” Clause, which excludes Sunday from the federal lawmaking process. The Framers of the Constitution held great respect for the Christian Sabbath and therefore removed it from the federal lawmaking calendar. …

Despite such concerns, earlier in the year Senator Harry Reid called the Senate into a rare Sunday session for a vote on a lands bill – a session which, in the words of one prominent national newspaper, communicated the clear message “church be damned.”

Significantly, until the twentieth century, Sunday remained off-limits as a legislative day. Then after a few Sunday sessions popped up in the early twentieth century, Congress returned to the constitutional directive. In fact, there were no congressional Sunday sessions even during the nation’s most serious crises, including World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Only in recent years has Congress decided to violate the spirit if not the letter of the Constitution’s “Sunday’s Excepted” Clause.

Even the liberal 1961 U. S. Supreme Court recognized and acknowledged the religious significance of this important constitutional clause:

First is the inclusion in the U. S. Constitution of the recognition of the Sabbath in Art. I, Sec. 7, 2, stipulating that the President has 10 days to sign a law, “Sundays excepted.” . . . Can any impartial mind deny that it contains a recognition of the Lord’s Day as a day exempted by law from all worldly pursuits? . . . Sunday was recognized as a day of rest. … –  Link to Website

Six Bogus Beliefs Held By Youth – Young people are incapable of recognizing their own enemy –  This is the essential condition required for the peaceful transfer of political power to a world dictatorship. As a young man who recently received an “education” from one of the finest schools in the U.S., I can state beyond doubt that this condition has been met. In a society conditioned to champion personal ambition, self-expression and self-empowerment, the educated youth of today are kept intoxicated with illusions.  Everyone is looking up, staring at the sun, and unable to stop and think for even a moment out of fear of losing their momentum up the ladder. Here is the script my generation sticks to. …(1-6)

With these unquestioned six beliefs alone, defenders of humanistic internationalist doctrine are created. Good, intelligent kids that are just trying to do their best and find their place in the world while fulfilling their parents’ expectations have been conditioned to unwittingly serve and defend the interests of a small group of psychotic criminals.  

Reversing this process will require an equally gradual counter-movement based on restoring God (reality) and destroying Evil (illusion). We lack the luxury of trying to stop the momentum of the opposing movement.  Instead we must strike with the power of our spirit and moral superiority.  

If we would like to establish a world where people are held accountable for the actions, we must be willing to give everyone a clean slate. We cannot hold people responsible for their actions when they live in a state of confusion. People must be reached individually, and to do so we must find ways to ease their minds back to reality as gently as possible. –  Link to Website

“In the Soviet Union you could clearly see your enemy, where in the west you don’t.”

— Josjo [Joseph] Terelya, Ukrane (now Canada) (1943-2009) Imprisoned & tortured for twenty years because of his Catholic faith; experienced visions and given messages by the Virgin Mary while in the Soviet Gulags.

“But should someone ask me whether I would indicate the West such as it is today as a model to my country, frankly I would have to answer negatively. No, I could not recommend your society in its present state as an ideal for the transformation of ours. Through intense suffering our country has now achieved a spiritual development of such intensity that the Western system in its present state of spiritual exhaustion does not look attractive. Even those characteristics of your life which I have just mentioned are extremely saddening.”

‘Safe schools’ chief recommends child porn for classroom reading – ‘Sex acts between preschoolers’ among subjects of books backed by openly ‘gay’ Obama adviser –  A new report is raising alarms that the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network, a homosexual advocacy organization founded by Kevin Jennings, now head of the U.S. Office of Safe Schools for the Obama administration, is recommending XXX-rated sex writings for children as young as preschoolers.

“We were unprepared for what we encountered. Book after book after book contained stories and anecdotes that weren’t merely X-rated and pornographic, but which featured explicit descriptions of sex acts between preschoolers; stories that seemed to promote and recommend child-adult sexual relationships; stories of public masturbation, anal sex in restrooms, affairs between students and teachers, five-year-olds playing sex games, ….

“One memoir even praised becoming a prostitute as a way to increase one’s self-esteem. Above all, the books seemed to have less to do with promoting tolerance than with an unabashed attempt to indoctrinate students into a hyper-sexualized worldview,” it advised –  Link to Website

What the Founding Fathers intended for education. – Northwest Ordinance – 1787 – Article 3. Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.

BRAVE NEW SCHOOLS – Judge: Parents bigots for opposing ‘gay’ lessons Families grilled about religious beliefs, church sermons against homosexuality – A judge has attacked parents, suggesting they are bigots for seeking to opt-out their elementary-age children from a mandatory controversial pro-homosexual curriculum, according to a non-profit law firm. …California’s Alameda Superior Court by Pacific Justice Institute. On Dec. 1, Judge Frank Roesch denied a motion to allow them to have their children excused from the lessons. According to the group, Roesch blasted the parents for seeking enforcement of a provision of the California Education Code that gives parents a right to opt their kids out of health education.

Education Code Section 51240 allows a parent to have a student excused from instruction, “If any part of a school’s instruction in health conflicts with the religious training and beliefs of a parent or guardian of a pupil.”

However, Pacific Justice Institute said Roesch repeatedly insinuated that the parents are bigots and insisted there can be no homosexual indoctrination because, he purportedly argued, people are born that way. …

He explained, “The whole purpose of the book was to get the subject [of same-sex parents] out into the minds and the awareness of children before they are old enough to have been convinced that there’s another way of looking at life. … It would be really nice if children were not subjected to the – I don’t want to use the word ‘bigotry,’ but that’s what I want to say anyway – of their parents and older people.” …

Second grade students read about two homosexual penguins that raise a young chick in the book “And Tango Makes Three” by J. Richardson and P. Parnell.The two male penguins, Roy and Silo, are described as being “a little bit different.” … In the third grade, students watch a film called “That’s a Family,” featuring some homosexual couples in addition to traditional families. …Fourth graders are required to read an essay titled, “My School is Accepting – but Things Could be Better” by Robert, an 11-year-old who has two lesbian mothers. They are introduced to terms such as “ally,” “gay,” “lesbian” and “LGBT.”

Teachers are instructed to ask, “How do you think Robert feels when he hears people say things like, ‘this is gay’ or ‘You’re so gay’?” By fifth grade, students learn to “identify stereotypes about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.” They are told that “LGBT people have made important contributions within the United States and beyond.” –  Link to Website

Out with Jesus, in with ‘Frosty the Snowman’ – Federal court upholds school district’s ban on tunes about Christ – The 3rd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia has upheld a school district’s ban on Christmas carols such as “Silent Night,” “Joy to the World,” “Oh, Come All Ye Faithful” and “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” – and approved “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Frosty the Snowman.”

In the Nov. 24 ruling the Third Circuit approved the school policy banning all religious Christmas music, including instrumentals, that had been part of the South Orange-Maplewood School District’s Christmas program for years – until one parent complained. … the school’s ban was specifically aimed at preventing Christmas music, including simple instrumentals without words, during holiday concerts. As WND reported, , the district had allowed the performance of traditional Christmas music for more than 60 years but in 2004 suddenly banned it.  –  Link to Website

The Secret History of Our Time: The Pope and Satan, War and the Anti-Christ, Revelations and the Last Days – But at the time Pope Leo published Rerum Novarum, he had already experienced a vision of things to come of an entirely different and deeply disturbing nature. As described in the Catholic on-line Michael Journal: “Exactly 33 years to the day prior to the great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, that is, on October 13, 1884, Pope Leo XIII had a remarkable vision. When the aged Pontiff had finished celebrating Mass in his private Vatican Chapel, attended by a few Cardinals and members of the Vatican staff, he suddenly stopped at the foot of the altar. He stood there for about 10 minutes, as if in a trance, his face ashen white. Then, going immediately from the Chapel to his office, he composed [a] prayer to St. Michael, with instructions it be said after all Low Masses everywhere.

“When asked what had happened, he explained that, as he was about to leave the foot of the altar, he suddenly heard voices – two voices, one kind and gentle, the other guttural and harsh. They seemed to come from near the tabernacle. As he listened, he heard the following conversation:

“The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord: ‘I can destroy your Church.’

“The gentle voice of Our Lord: ‘You can? Then go ahead and do so.’

“Satan: ‘To do so, I need more time and more power.’

“Our Lord: ‘How much time? How much power?’

“Satan: ‘75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service.’

“Our Lord: ‘You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will.’

“The prayer Pope Leo XIII decreed be said at the end of Low Mass was: ‘Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.’ Pope Leo’s vision, of course, is strikingly similar to the power granted Satan by God in the Book of Job.

The 75-100 years of Satanic power Pope Leo foresaw through his vision would, at its greatest extent, take the world through the year 1984, halfway through the Ronald Reagan presidency in the U.S. It would have encompassed World Wars I and II, the Great Depression, and the Cold War. It would have included the assassinations of U.S. Presidents William McKinley and John F. Kennedy, along with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy.  –  Link to Website

POW Jeremiah Denton: God Spoke to Me in Prison – Adm. Jeremiah Denton, a former U.S. senator who spent seven years in brutal conditions as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War, credits his survival and subsequent success to giving himself over to God after enduring years of torture. … “Well, this is going to sound kooky I guess, but I heard a voice in my cell when I was nearing despair and saying to the Lord I’m not sure I can go on comporting myself in an honorable fashion,” Denton told Martella. “I’ve just got to have some help. About five or ten seconds after I said that… the only noise I could hear was this man being tortured who was shrieking… and this clear voice came out and said, ‘Say sacred heart of Jesus, I give myself to you.’ “ … “And that just broke me up. I broke down and cried and since that time I’ve learned that if you do that, turn yourself over to God and say, ‘Look, you be the origin of the stimuli for my thoughts for my actions and make it be in accordance with your will’ and it’s amazing how that will work,” Denton said –  Link to Website

Teaching plan: America ‘an oppressive hellhole’ – University outlines ‘re-education’ for those who hold ‘wrong’ views – A program proposed at the University of Minnesota would result in required examinations of teacher candidates on “white privilege” as well as “remedial re-education” for those who hold the “wrong” views, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. …

By any “non-totalitarian” standards, he wrote, plans being made so far by the school are “severely unjust and impermissibly intrude into matters of individual conscience.” Kissel wrote that it appears that the university “intends to redesign its admissions process so that it screens out people with the ‘wrong’ beliefs and values – those who either do not have sufficient ‘cultural competence’ or those who the college judges will not be able to be converted to the ‘correct’ beliefs and values even after remedial re-education.” “These intentions violate the freedom of conscience of the university’s students. As a public university bound by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, the university is both legally and morally obligated to uphold this fundamental right,” he wrote.   – Link to Website

“The free and uninterrupted exercise of our consciences in that way of worship we are most clearly persuaded God requires us to serve Him in, without endangering undoubted birthright of English freedom.” “By Liberty of Conscience, we understand not only a mere Liberty of the Mind, in believing or disbelieving this or that principle or doctrine; but ‘the exercise of ourselves in a visible way of worship, upon our believing it to be indispensably required at our hands, that if we neglect it for fear of favor of any mortal man, we sin and incur divine wrath.”

Why sin cannot be condoned by state – Joseph Farah – On Friday, more than 150 Christian leaders, most of them conservative evangelicals and traditionalist Roman Catholics, issued a joint declaration reaffirming their opposition to homosexual marriage on the basis of protecting religious freedom. While I agree that government’s granting of special “rights” based on aberrant sexual behavior is a religious freedom issue, it’s not the main reason for concern by Christians and Jews. The Bible clearly identifies homosexual behavior, as opposed to homosexual thoughts or predilections, as sin. The issue Christians and Jews should be focused upon is whether it can ever be acceptable for the government to condone sin – or, worse yet, encourage it by making it a “right.” I don’t believe government can do that without dire consequences. …

He’s saying something to which every Christian, every Jew and every American should pay close attention: God has revealed to all men the difference between right and wrong. You may not like God’s rules, but we are all without excuse as to what those rules are. If you don’t obey God’s rules, your heart becomes darkened to the truth. You might think you know better than God, but you are actually a fool if you do. When a whole society rejects the One True God and begins worshipping false gods, it opens the society up to judgment.

Those judgments include the following: more unrighteous behavior, sexual immorality, meanness, greed, envy, violence, conflict, lies, gossip, hate for God, pride, self-centeredness, mercilessness and disrespect for parents by children. Notice that No. 1 on that list is homosexuality. However, also notice, it’s not just homosexuality, but an increase in those who take pleasure in the exhibition of homosexual behavior that comes as a judgment on a society rejecting God.

Does this sound like any societies you know? America is being judged by God.  – Link to Website

We Still Hold These Truths: Rediscovering America’s Founding – Matthew Spalding –  Our Revolution was a revolution about principles. As a result, that means our nation always looks back and upholds those principles … it is that debate between the founders and their world view and the modern progressives view is at issue here. – Link to Video

We Still Hold These Truths: The Progressive Assault on America – Matthew Spalding –  In many ways the centerpiece of the progressive argument is the idea of realitivisin. … Which is that there are no perminate principles. The idea of self evident truth does not make sense, everything changes, everything evolves. And they needed that principle and they believed that principle, because that was the core thing that went against the founding in the first place. The idea of perminate principles  … their principles were directed to undermine the core principles of the American founding….- Link to Video

American Patriotism Is Still Alive – We are a Homeschooling family. American History is our favorite subject, and we love going to the Taxpayers Tea Parties. …The kids were amazed by the passion of the speakers addressing the crowd in the open air. They liked answering the speakers saying,”We say no,” in unison with the crowd.  …I told them that Patrick Henry made a stirring speech in which he said “Give me liberty, or give me death.” And that speech was the spark that ignited the American Revolution. It must have been some speech.

So I found it and read it to the children While I was reading it, I realized that I had never seen the entire speech before. some important things about it. I studied American History in college, but we only read the part where Patrick Henry proclaimed, “Give me liberty or give me death.” It’s very likely that you have never read it either, and I’ll tell you why. Patrick Henry’s speech has been removed from our textbooks because he talks about God in it.  If  young and impressionable school children read this, they might be inspired to love God and to love America. That would defeat the purpose of modern education which is to indoctrinate our children with secularism, multi-culturism, and socialism. …- Link to Website  Linkable Page

Editors Note: Not only have the religious portions of Patrick Henry’s speech been removed from most text books used in public schools, many other important documents and speeches have been changed or removed as well. George Washington’s first and last Inaugural Address, once considered mandatory reading for students has been removed from the curriculum. In our politically correct, anti-religious, secular American public school system, Washington’s Inaugural Address was removed because of the references to God, and God’s hand, in establishment of the United States. Washington’s words wisdom, his timeless advice to future generations for the perpetuation and survival of our republic, today, are considered too dangerous for the minds of young readers to be exposed to.

The result of this sanitizing of American history is that, by design, the vast majority of public school children (& past 2-3 generations) will be taught an incorrect, skewed, Godless view of history. Most Americans will live their entire lives never knowing their country’s true history. They will never know its precious, rich, Christian heritage and miracles that came about to help establish the Republic. Ignorant of their true history, and ignorant that their rights come from God, not government; many Americans, when asked, will say the government of the United States is a Democracy or representative Democracy, not a Constitutional Republic. That is what they have been taught in school and is what hear in the media. But under a Democracy, it is government (majority or mob rule) who determines what rights you have, and sadly one by one (as many are starting to wake up to), they have already lost many of their rights, liberties, and freedoms that our Founding Fathers and earlier citizens fought and died to protect.  

A Thanksgiving Lesson – Did you know that our Pilgrim forefathers tried communism when they first landed at Plymouth Rock? – How’s that for a dramatic beginning to a story? Years ago, when I used to give a lot of talks to high school classes, this was one of my favorites. It always got the students’ attention. And I have to admit, I also enjoyed seeing some liberal teachers get so upset with me they almost lost their lunches. … The Pilgrims who arrived at Plymouth Rock in 1620 were incredibly brave and hardy souls. They were motivated by the noblest of virtues. They vowed, each and every one, to be as selfless as possible—to always put the needs of the group first. They agreed to own everything in common and to share everything equally.

And their naïve piety almost killed the entire colony. We all know how the adventure begins. A group of devout Christians, seeking religious freedom for themselves and eager to “advance the Gospel of the Kingdom of Christ” in the New World …Unfortunately, thanks to illness, injury and attitude, the system did not work. Pilferage from the storehouse became common. Suspicions of malingering were muttered. Over the course of that first, harsh winter, nearly half of the colonists perished. Four families were wiped out completely; …The colonists struggled desperately for two more years. When spring arrived in April 1623, virtually all of their provisions were gone. Unless that year’s harvest improved, they feared few would survive the next winter. The Pilgrim leaders decided on a bold course. The colony would abandon its communal approach and permit each person to work for his own benefit, not for the common good. …

Once they replaced communal efforts with individual responsibility the differences were dramatic—and life-saving. Men went into the fields earlier and stayed later. In many cases, their wives and even their children (some barely past the toddler stage) worked right alongside them. More acres were planted, more trees were felled, more houses were built, and more game was slaughtered because of one simple change: People were allowed to keep the fruits of their own labors. …  – Link to Website

Government schools are killing America – Molotov Mitchell – America’s number one problem is our lack of theological understanding, which leads to a lack of spiritual relationship with God. Our number two problem is public education … Internationally; American is not even rated in the 25 for science, math or reading. Finland on the other hand is ranked either number one or two in every one of those categories. What is their secret? Vouchers.

Finnish parents get tax credits so they get to send the kids to what ever school they want, pubic for private. Isn’t that the way it should be? Isn’t that best for the kid? Shouldn’t parents decide which school their kids go to and where their tax dollar going? But here, in the land of the free …  unless you are talking about teen abortions without parental consent, choice is a dirty word … homeschooled kids understand the Constitution, on average, far better than public school kids. That would make sense, the Founding Fathers were, after all, homeschooled.

This year an organization called Exodus Mandate has called on all Christian families to yank their kids out of the public education system, immediately. It has been a long time coming brother. The public education systems can NOT BE REFORMED. Public education founder C. F. Potter stated that one hour of Sunday School cannot possibly stem the tide of five days of humanist education. You see, from the beginning, the goal was never about education, it has always been about indoctrination. That is why our kids know everyting about sex and nothing about history.

National Park Service removes God from Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation – These days, it seems to be getting more and more difficult to know what information you can trust, especially with the main stream media and many web sites on the internet. If you expected federal government web sites that exhibit our founding history, documents and historical sites immune from revision or omission, you would be wrong. In our politically correct, secular, anti-God society today, nothing it seems is off limits. Not even Lincoln’s Proclamation establishing the last Thursday of November as a day of thanksgiving is immune from revision.

Revising, and sanitizing, American history, by removing God is nothing new; it has been going on in the public school system for two or three generations. So too has this been happening to many of our important national documents, and historical sites, as well. A number of books like The Rewriting of American’s History and other books document expunging God from our national history. The same has been observed, and documented, with many of our historical sites as well. Examples are too numerous to mention. One such example I ran into today that prompted this piece was the National Park Service’s web site listing Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation.

One of the most common “omissions” in documents on many federal and state web sites is to remove the last paragraph or words “in the year of our Lord …” Another is to post only a portion of the document or letter thus, removing the religious portion. And yet another is to make the document harder to find, or in rare cases, removing the document altogether. Below is an example from the National Park Service web site of Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Day Proclamation. Omitted from Lincoln’s October 3, 1863, Thanksgiving Day Proclamation is in the last paragraph of the text, “Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.” – Link to National Park Service Web Site

Phrases like, “in the year of our Lord,” not only define the religious nature of our country’s founding, they show that our calendar is dated to the birth of Jesus Christ. This is why it is often removed from many historical documents. ….  – Article Link

The Editor:

The Results of Our Ignorance – Ignorance is a lack of knowledge, education or awareness. There are many people today who know little or nothing about the U.S. Constitution. There are many who know little or nothing of U.S. history, let alone world history. There are many who know little or nothing about central banks, and how they are used to steal our wealth. There are many who buy into the glossed-over news of the day. There are many who take at face value the words of the elected class, the pundits and main stream media talking heads and printed headlines. There are many who buy into the party line of their preferred political party. There are many who blindly believe the various political parties have a platform on which they base their actions and agendas and are committed to following through on those policies. There are many who believe the president, senator or representative they elected has in their hearts the best interests of the people they supposedly serve.

There are many who are ignorant. It’s not all their fault—particularly the younger generations. Their education system has been corrupted by 1960s radicalism—the same radicalism that has infected our government. Public education has become a sad joke. …Don’t think the elected class is ignorant. They’re not. They know exactly what they’re doing—stealing your wealth and your liberty. Never mind whether it’s Constitutional, says the elected class. We know what’s best for you. Never mind whether it’s Constitutional, it’s free, say the ignorant. … Some are waking up. The Tea Parties demonstrate that. But too many are ignorant. And apparently they’re ready to accept anything as long as it’s “free.” After all: ignorance is bliss and free is good. – Link to Website  – Linkable Page

Thy kingdom come – You cannot understand history without understanding Divine Providence. The whole of history can be looked at from a Biblical philosophy, because there is an overall purpose that unifies all the specific events of history. From a humanistic standpoint, there is no purpose in history and hence no unifying theme that ties the events of history together. Many modern educators deny the Providential view of history and would have us believe that their promotion of one of several “secular” views of history is simply the recounting of brute facts.

God’s plan for the nations has been unfolding in a specific geographic direction. This geographical march of history is called the Chain of Christianity or the Chain of Liberty. It seems as if God’s direction is westward. “Christian” geography (which is true geography) is the view that the earth’s origin, end, purposes, and physiography are for Christ and His glory. Like individuals, nations have a unique purpose. We will see throughout this book how God has raised up and put down nations of the world for His purposes. … During the Revolutionary War, God performed many miracles on behalf of the American army, for God desired to see America win its struggle for freedom, become a nation, and fulfill its divine purposes. – Link to Website

“I always, consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in Providence for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.”

SAINT PATRICK’S CONTRIBUTIONS TO WESTERN (CHRISTIAN) CIVILIZATION – Across America, great frustration and anger are rising, as productive Americans feel that they are buried in hundreds of thousands of laws and tax codes that dominate their everyday lives, families, property and businesses. …Why is this happening? America is at the tipping point between the two major conflicting law systems of people and nations: King’s or Ruler’s Law and God’s Law. America was founded upon a simple and yet profoundly effective infrastructure built upon voluntary obedience to God’s Law. The result was blessing, prosperity and personal liberty as the world had never before experienced. Taxes were low, laws were few and life and charity were focused at the family and community level.

But the past few generations have been seduced back toward the top-down Ruler’s Law which has dominated most nations of the world. This system always enslaves a people through an elaborate network of bureaucracy and ruler’s laws, eventually leaving them dependent upon government for everything. The rulers often make god-like promises and always exempt themselves from their own onerous laws and taxes.

The answer to this juggernaut of Ruler’s Law has always been the same throughout history. The story of the rise of liberty has repeated itself for two millennia. First a people find themselves in misery under the strong arm of their government. Then God raises up a small minority, sometimes one individual, who rediscovers that the only source of liberty is God and His Word. Working together with God, they then proceed to liberate millions with His truth. Be encouraged that we can restore our nation against all odds. There is no better place to start to see what can be done than to track the impact of early believers as they faced the cruelty of Rome on the one hand and the anarchy and barbarity of the pagan tribes of Europe on the other. They ultimately outlasted and defeated the Roman Empire and laid the foundations for Western Civilization. They turned the world upside down by following their Lord’s strategy of servant leadership (Mathew 20:25). They started by first living out God’s Law in their homes, businesses and church fellowships. Then they extended charity in many ways including, feeding the poor and saving abandoned babies left to die. They evangelized the unbelievers, and established God’s Law as the basis for all of their societal institutions.  – Link to Website

You Might Be A Constitutionalist If … – More than thirty years as a student of American history, constitutional government, and the Holy Bible leads me to the conviction that the two major political parties in this country (at the national level) are equally culpable in stripping America of its founding principles. In my opinion, both the Democrat and Republican parties in Washington, D.C., have zero fidelity to the U.S. Constitution and zero respect for America’s foundational precepts. ….I am absolutely convinced that without a renewed allegiance to constitutional government and State sovereignty, there can be no resolution to America’s current slide into socialism and oppression. …

1. You might be a Constitutionalist if you believe that every congressman, senator, President, and Supreme Court justice is required to obey the U.S. Constitution.

2. You might be a Constitutionalist if you believe that before the United States invades and occupies another country, Congress must first declare war.

3. You might be a Constitutionalist if you believe the federal government should live within its means, like everyone else is forced to do.

4. You might be a Constitutionalist if you think that taking away people’s liberties in the name of security is not patriotic, nor does it make the country more secure.

5. You might be a Constitutionalist if you would like to see politicians be forced to abide by the same laws they make everyone else submit to.

7. You might be a Constitutionalist if you believe that the federal government has no authority to be involved in education or law enforcement, or in any other issue that the Tenth Amendment reserves to the States, or to the People.

13. You might be a Constitutionalist if you understand that outsourcing American jobs overseas is not good for America.

36. You might be a Constitutionalist if you would like to meet one single congressman or senator besides Ron Paul who acts as if he or she has ever read the U.S. Constitution.

Well, how did you fare? Are you a Constitutionalist? If so, your country desperately needs you to stand up and fight for freedom’s principles before they are forever taken from us. This means never again voting for anyone-from any party-who will not preserve, protect, and defend the U.S. Constitution. So, don’t just take the test; make the pledge! –  Link to Website

“While most nations trace their origin to barbarians, the foundations of our nation were laid by civilized men, by Christians.”

— Lyman Beecher (1775-1863) Presbyterian minister & founder of the American Temperance Society

Alexander’s Essay – Nobody Questions That? – Never before has there been more evidence of outright contempt for our Constitution than under the current liberal hegemony presiding over the executive and legislative branches of our federal government. …Those who laid our constitutional foundation were very clear about its limits on government. Our Constitution’s principle author, James Madison, wrote, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined [and] will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce.”

Concerning the legislature’s authority, Thomas Jefferson asserted: “[G]iving [Congress] a distinct and independent power to do any act they please which may be good for the Union, would render all the preceding and subsequent enumerations of power completely useless. It would reduce the whole [Constitution] to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and as sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please. Certainly, no such universal power was meant to be given them. [The Constitution] was intended to lace them up straightly within the enumerated powers and those without which, as means, these powers could not be carried into effect.” Madison added, “If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.”…

In every successive Congress since 1995, conservative Arizona Republican Rep. John Shadegg has sponsored the Enumerated Powers Act (HR 1359), which requires that “Each Act of Congress shall contain a concise and definite statement of the constitutional authority relied upon for the enactment of each portion of that Act.” The measure continues to fail, however, because of a dirty little secret: There is no legitimate constitutional authority for almost 70 percent of current federal government programs, and, thus, no authority for the collection of taxes to fund such activities. Though Obama swore to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” and every member of Congress has pledged “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” and “bear true faith and allegiance to the same,” Democrats, and too many Republicans, have forsaken their sacred oaths. In doing so, they have inflicted grievous injury upon our Constitution, thereby placing our Essential Liberty in eminent peril. – Link to Website

The Intelligent Student’s Guide to the New World Order – What is the New World Order? (Godless socialism)  How does it affect you? The essence of the New World Order or WORld Management System (WORMS) is that it is management by social engineers, rather than government based on a written constitution. How you are affected by this management system, depends on what the social engineers decide the system should do for you and require of you. The social engineers and system managers think of themselves as scientists applying the scientific method to the control of group behavior. Your behavior and relationships are regarded as subjects of investigation and control by those who call themselves ‘social scientists.’ You are among their test animals, and you have no say in, and often no knowledge of experiments that involve you….

…From then on your local school board and your parents have had little to say about what you should be expected to learn. NCSS CONTROLS what you should know, when you should know it. If you, your school or community have different standards and do not try to live up to NCSS standards for the New World Order, your schools can be closed or your community punished by depriving it of federal, foundation, and state money. – Link to Website

Barack Obama has failed to defeat conservatism in America – This week’s striking Gallop poll on political ideology is further confirmation that the United States is in essence a conservative nation, which has ironically become even more conservative under Barack Obama. According to Gallup, 40 percent of Americans describe their political views as conservative, 36 percent as moderate and 20 percent as liberal. …These are staggering figures when you consider that the Left currently dominates the Executive Branch of the US Government, both Houses of the United States Congress, the federal bureaucracy, huge swathes of local government in many big cities, academia, the public school system, and most of the establishment broadcast and print media in America. The figures show there is a huge disconnect between the American public and those who wield much of the political power in the country. …The spirit of Ronald Reagan is alive and well in America, exemplified by strong public backing for the principles of limited government, free enterprise, individual responsibility and a strong defence. The White House should sit up and take note: it is liberalism, and not conservatism, that is in decline in the United States. – Link to Website

Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty, Claim British Lord – (One Nation Under God or One Nation Under World Government?) …I read that treaty. And what it says is this, that a world government is going to be created. And the trouble is this; if that treaty is signed, if your Constitution says that it takes precedence over your Constitution (sic), and you can’t resign from that treaty unless you get agreement from all the other state parties – And because you’ll be the biggest paying country, they’re not going to let you out of it.

So, thank you, America. You were the beacon of freedom to the world. It is a privilege merely to stand on this soil of freedom while it is still free. But, in the next few weeks, unless you stop it, your president will sign your freedom, your democracy, and your prosparity away forever. And neither you nor any subsequent government you may elect will have any power whatsoever to take it back. That is how serious it is. I’ve read the treaty. I’ve seen this stuff about [world] government and climate debt and enforcement. They are going to do this to you whether you like it or not.

But I think it is here, here in your great nation, which I so love and I so admire – it is here that perhaps, at this eleventh hour, at the fifty-ninth minute and fifty-ninth second, you will rise up and you will stop your president from signing that dreadful treaty, that purposeless treaty. For there is no problem with climate and, even if there were, an economic treaty does nothing to [help] it.

So I end by saying to you the words that Winston Churchill addressed to your president in the darkest hour before the dawn of freedom in the Second World War. He quoted from your great poet Longfellow:

Sail on, O Ship of State!

Sail on, O Union, strong and great!

Humanity with all its fears,

With all the hopes of future years,

Is hanging breathless on thy fate!

WHY WE NEED THE FREEDOM IN EDUCATION ACT – (Undermining God, the Constitution and perverting history in schools) By Tom DeWeese – Your elected Representatives and Senators in Congress deny that this nation has a mandatory national education curriculum. Congress hides the fact of the existence of a mandatory national curriculum behind the historic arrangement of state and local control of schools. The U.S. national government denies that there is a national curriculum that teaches the need for world government over the need to safequard American national sovereignty and independence. Your Representatives and Senators in Congress are in the dark and the national government is lying.

The fact is, the building blocks of world government are being taught in a number of ways. There are several specific programs in today’s education curriculum designed to promote global government.

The International Baccalaureate Program (IB) created by the United Nations Economic, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is now in more than 500 American public schools and the U.S. Department of Education is helping to fund it. UNESCO says, “the program remains committed to changing children’s values so they think globally, rather than in parochial national terms from their own country’s viewpoint.” The IB curriculum achieves that goal, says UNESCO, by promoting human rights, social justice, sustainable development, population, health, environmental, and immigration concerns. This is political indoctrination, not education. It’s propaganda for a certain political agenda. – Link to Website

A Brief Analysis of We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution – We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution is a civics textbook that is currently being used in many high schools throughout the country. By its own admission, this book is a “project of the Center for Civic Education, funded by the U.S. Department of Education by act of Congress.”

This subsidized textbook is sowing the seeds of doubt in our nation’s school children, getting them to question the brilliant principles our Founding Fathers instilled in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. What follows is an analysis of just some of the antithetical principles that are taught in this civics textbook: – Link to Website

1. Ignoring the clearest limitation upon the federal government.

2. Skewed view of federalism

3. Second Amendment rights denigrated.

4. Unalienable vs. evolving rights.

Report: Over 350 Public Schools Teaching the Bible – Leading the pack is Texas where more than 50 schools are teaching the course this fall, according to data from the Bible Literacy Project, which publishes The Bible and Its Influence, a student textbook designed for public school courses on the Bible.

Right behind Texas, schools in Georgia, California and Indiana are widely teaching lessons on the Bible using the Bible Literacy textbook. More than 10 percent of Georgia public high schools and more than 5 percent of public high schools in Alabama, Indiana and South Carolina are utilizing the program, said Chuck Stetson, chairman of the Bible Literacy Project board.

The Bible and Its Influence – reviewed by 40 religious and legal scholars representing evangelical, mainline Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox and Jewish communities – is reportedly the first student textbook that fulfills the legal standards of The Bible & Public Schools: A First Amendment Guide.

It was released in September 2005 and the primary goal of the course is biblical literacy. While providing an academic study of biblical narratives and their influence on literature and culture, the course does not promote or discourage religious belief, the Bible Literacy Project insists. – Link to Website

Social Utility: How Much Are Grandpa and Grandma Worth? – Rus­sell L. Blay­lock, M.D. – … I dis­cussed a con­cept that is always on the mind of the socialist planner and that is “social utility”. To fully under­stand this con­cept one has to under­stand the socialist phi­los­ophy, if it can indeed be called a phi­los­ophy—in gen­eral, philoso­phies are ana­lyt­ical. In their world view, which is basi­cally a gnostic one, the world is occu­pied by two basic forms of human life—those who are wise and chosen and those who make up the common rabble?—the masses. …

To have the older gen­er­a­tion around as long as pos­sible is a great value to us all. There was a time when we hon­ored our par­ents and grand­par­ents as sources of great wisdom, yet in modern times we just see them as old fogies that have no idea how to send emails or pro­gram a DVD. We are now being taught by our “elite leaders” and intel­lec­tuals that we would all be better off if the elderly would just accept death and that denying them health care can speed the process.

There is a polar­iza­tion between the young and old, which can only be wors­ened by the present debate on the elderly’s “social utility”. With so many divorcees, a growing number of youth often feel little real attach­ment, appre­ci­a­tion or abiding love for their par­ents or grand­par­ents. One can make a strong case for the present destruc­tion of fam­i­lies and mar­riages being the result of a series of ear­lier social engi­neering plans and schemes. …

A great number have served nobly during America’s wars–lost limbs and suf­fered from the stress of war. Are we to dis­honor them now for their sac­ri­fice by telling them they are a lia­bility? Others gave their sons and daugh­ters during wars and lived with the anguish of the loss. Is this how we honor that sac­ri­fice?—?to tell them that they are of no use? When I read the sto­ries of the young men and women who have sac­ri­ficed their lives in battle in today’s wars I wonder will they be dis­hon­ored in such a way when they get old or sick?.

We can hon­estly say that it was the labor of our seniors that built this great country, so how can be betray them now? Even worse is that we are telling them that we don’t even care that they are suf­fering during their last days and that they are aware that relief of their suf­fering exist, but they cannot have it??the money, they are told, would be better spent on edu­ca­tional pro­grams, studies of global cli­mate change and a plethora of other socialist dreams.  If we let this happen, we should hold our heads in shame. –  Link to Website

Some Parents Revolt Over Obama’s Planned Speech to Children – President Obama’s plan to deliver a televised speech to public school students caused an uproar among conservative parents in Texas, who demanded that their children be allowed to skip the event, scheduled for Tuesday. “It seemed like a direct channel from the president of the United States into the classroom, to my child,” said Brent Curtis, an engineer who is keeping his three kids at home. “I don’t want our schools turned over to some socialist movement.” Most of the opposition was along similar lines, complaining either that the speech was indoctrination or that it had not been screened for political content.

White House officials stressed that the speech was not political, and would simply encourage children to work hard and stay in school. “It’s not a policy speech,” a spokeswoman for the Department of Education said, repeating the assurances that White House spokespeople issued Thursday.

Criticism of the speech began when it was learned that an accompanying lesson plan referred to ways students can “help the President” and urged them to think about “what the President wants us to do.” …

In violation of Federal Law enlisting kids to push an agenda…..

20 U.S.C. § 3403 (Pub.L. 96-88, Title I, § 103, Oct. 17, 1979, 93 Stat. 670)

United States Code Title 20. Education Chapter 48. Department of Education Subchapter I. General Provisions § 3403. Relationship with States

(a) Rights of local governments and educational institutions

It is the intention of the Congress in the establishment of the Department to protect the rights of State and local governments and public and private educational institutions in the areas of educational policies and administration of programs and to strengthen and improve the control of such governments and institutions over their own educational programs and policies. The establishment of the Department of Education shall not increase the authority of the Federal Government over education or diminish the responsibility for education which is reserved to the States and the local school systems and other instrumentalities of the States.

(b) Curriculum, administration, and personnel; library resources

No provision of a program administered by the Secretary or by any other officer of the Department shall be construed to authorize the Secretary or any such officer to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system, over any accrediting agency or association, or over the selection or content of library resources, textbooks, or other instructional materials by any educational institution or school system, except to the extent authorized by law.

Mandatory Gay-Friendly Classes – A lawsuit in California that was filed last month by angry parents who object to a gay-friendly curriculum they say is being foisted on kindergartners could well become a test case for schools around the country. Parents in the Alameda Unified School District were refused the right to excuse their kids from classes that would teach all kids in the district’s elementary schools about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender alternative families.

The parents say they are concerned about “indoctrination” in the schools, but administrators say the course is needed to protect against sexual discrimination — and that the lessons are protected by laws in California and 10 other states. Those states, which stretch from Washington to Maine, will now be eyeing the court results in California in a case that warring sides say pits parents’ rights against a schools’ responsibilities. ….The contested California curriculum includes an annual 45-minute LGBT lesson taught to kids from kindergarten through the fifth grade. The kindergartners will focus on the harms of teasing, while the fifth graders will study sexual orientation stereotypes. –  Link to Website

“The virtues of men are of more consequence to society than their abilities; and for this reason, the heart should be cultivated with more assiduity than the head.”

— Noah Webster (1758-1843)  Father of the Dictionary & American Patriot

“He asks how the evil is to be remedied. I tell him that there seems to be little chance for avoiding the extremes of despotism or anarchy; that the only ground of hope must be the morals of the people, but that these are, I fear, too corrupt.”

“The education of young citizens ought to form them to good manners, to accustom them to labor, to inspire them with a love of order, and to impress them with respect for. lawful authority. Religion is the only solid basis of good morals; therefore education should teach the precepts of religion, and the duties of man towards God.

These duties are, internally, love and adoration; externally, devotion and obedience; therefore provision should bo made for maintaining divine worship as well as education. But each one has a right to entire liberty as to religion opinions, for religion is the relation between God and man ; therefore it is not within the reach of human authority.”

— Gouverneur Morris (1752-1816) Statesman, Diplomat, writer of the final draft of the Constitution

The Threat from International Treaty Law – The vital child-parent relationship is deeply valued in millions of homes across the nation. Yet most American families have no idea of the extent to which this precious relationship is now jeopardized by the threat of international treaty law.

Today the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is approaching a possible ratification by the United States Senate. This treaty, as harmless as it may appear, is capable of attacking the very core of the child-parent relationship, removing parents from their central role in the growth and development of a child, and replacing them with the long arm of government supervision within the home. …

A DEPARTURE FROM AMERICAN LAW But the Convention’s emphasis on the “best interests” principle is a sharp break from American law. In the 1993 case of Reno v. Flores, the U.S. Supreme Court held that “the ‘best interests of the child’ is not the legal standard that governs parents’ or guardians’ exercise of their custody.” –  Link to Website

Court orders Christian child into government education – A 10-year-old homeschool girl described as “well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level” has been told by a New Hampshire court official to attend a government school because she was too “vigorous” in defense of her Christian faith.

The decision from Marital Master Michael Garner reasoned that the girl’s “vigorous defense of her religious beliefs to [her] counselor suggests strongly that she has not had the opportunity to seriously consider any other point of view.” The recommendation was approved by JudgeLucinda V. Sadler, but it is being challenged by attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund who said it was “a step too far” for any court.

The ADF confirmed today it has filed motions with the court seeking reconsideration of the order and a stay of the decision sending the 10-year-old student in government-run schools in Meredith, N.H. –  Link to Website

“The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary – Preface “

“In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed. …No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary

EDUCATION: The bringing up, as of a child, instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.

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.

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.

Florida Governor Credits Prayer at Kotel for No Hurricanes – Florida Governor Charlie Crist said his written prayers that were placed at the Western Wall (Kotel) have prevented hurricanes from striking the state the past two years. Crist, a Methodist, told real estate agents that during a trade mission to Israel in 2007, he went to the Western Wall and placed a note that said, “Dear G-d, please protect our Florida from storms and other difficulties. Charlie.” Crist noted that the state, often devastated by hurricanes, was hit eight times in 2004 and 2005 but has been spared since his prayer. –  Link to Website

Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine – Link to audio

“All of us can see what happens once you establish the precedent that the government can determine a man’s working place and his working methods, determine his employment. From here it’ a short step to all the rest of socialism, to determining his pay. And pretty soon your son won’t decide, when he’s in school, where he will go, or what he will do for a living. He will wait for the government to tell him where he will go to work and what he will do. Write those letters now. Call your friends, and tell them to write them. If you don’t, this program I promise you, will pass just as surely as the sun will come up tomorrow. And behind it will come other federal programs that will invade every area of freedom as we have known it in this country, until, one day…. we will awake to find that we have socialism. And if you don’t do this, and if I don’t do it, one of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.”

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

As storms flare, so do attempts to deciede which are ‘SIGNS’ and which are not – …That was never more obvious than in Minneapolis last week – when an extremely rare tornado roared near the downtown and ripped a steeple off the flagship Lutheran cathedral while national leaders of that congregation were there in Minneapolis – across the street, at that very moment – preparing to vote on whether to have a more accepting policy toward homosexuals. So stark was the “sign” that it was commented about on both religious and secular blogs and even by leaders at the event itself – yet when it came down to the vote, they obviously dismissed it, for they proceeded not only to vote for a more accepting policy but, two days later, to allow actively homosexual as clergy!

Some said there had not been such a storm in ninety years (about as long as anyone could remember), and if that wasn’t enough of a “sign,” the tornado itself was brief and just a hundred yards wide and moved only over a distance of only half a mile – just enough to knock off the steeple, disrupt the meeting, and also destroy the roof and windows of a famous local music store called the “Electric Fetus.” This perhaps is taking happenstance – and rejection of signs – to a new level. A rare meteorological event like out of the Old Testament occurs and still Lutheran leaders proceed with a matter that contravenes Old and New Testament teachings. At the same time, a bizarre dark cloud and tornado warnings swept over Toronto, Canada and a vicious storm felled a hundred trees in New York City’s Central Park. – Link to Website

American Providentialial History – The History Guru  –  American history is, in the view of some, not the same as the history of any other nation. Instead, American History is the history of Providence. It is the history of how the divine hand has interacted with the human element to create a nation that is, in many ways, unique among the nations of the world. As such, its history is also unique among the history of the nations. In this view, American history is really American providential history; it’s the story of God’s interaction with humanity.

American providential history focuses on the unique elements in American history in which human beings have interacted with the divine. As such, it begins with a study of the early American settlers. These settlers, in many cases, came to America from Europe for religious reasons. In some instances, they were persecuted for their religious beliefs, such as was the case with the Pilgrims. In other instances, people came to America for missionary purposes – they hoped to spread Christianity to the native people of America.

From there, people interested in American providential history focus on the amazing events that occurred during the nation’s founding. They look at movements like the Great Awakening, which had a significant impact on the religious views of the colonists. In many ways, it was this Great Awakening that was responsible for the political spirit of independence that ultimately led to the creation of the United States.

The interaction of the Divine with America doesn’t stop there, however. American providential history looks at the subsequent events that have occurred, as well. For example, the struggle over slavery is viewed as God’s working in society to make sure that the God-given rights of life and liberty are protected for all people, not just the privileged few. A providential view of American history also sees America as a unique country in the eyes of God. It views America as a “city on a hill” that serves as a model for the rest of the world when it comes to liberty and freedom.  – Link to Website

Minneapolis tornado rips Lutheran conference on gays in the church. Here’s the church… Where’s the steeple? – The inverted Cross atop Central Lutheran church Minneapolis dangled from the steeple on Wednesday following a rare downtown twister as the ELCA Churchwide Assembly was in legislative session across the street at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Things that make you go, hmmm… … The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is considering a proposal that would allow members in homosexual relationships to serve as clergy. It has denied a motion to require a higher proportion of votes for the proposal to pass. On Monday delegates gathered at the Minneapolis Convention Center rejected a proposal to require approval from a two-thirds supermajority instead of a simple majority when the measure comes to a final vote, expected on Friday.  – Link to Website

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

— Revelation 3:13 RSV

“Because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct.”

Enumerated Powers Act – Would Require Congress to Cite Constitutional Authority – The Enumerated Powers Act, H.R. 2458, requires that all bills introduced in the U.S. Congress include a statement setting forth the specific constitutional authority under which the law is being enacted. This measure will force a continual re-examination of the role of the national government, and will fundamentally alter the ever-expanding reach of the federal government. For too long, the federal government has operated without constitutional restraint. In doing so, it has created ineffective and costly programs, massive deficits year after year, and a national debt totaling nearly $7 trillion. The Enumerated Powers Act will help slow the flood of unconstitutional legislation and force Congress to reexamine the proper role of the federal government. – Link to Website

New study shows homeschoolers excel academically – HSLDA released a new study: the Progress Report 2009: Homeschool Academic Achievement and Demographics, conducted by Dr. Brian Ray of the National Home Education Research Institute, which surveyed 11,739 homeschooled students for the 2007–08 academic school year. The results were consistent with previous studies on homeschool academic achievement and showed that homeschoolers, on average, scored 37 percentile points above public school students on standardized achievement tests.

….“Because of the one-on-one instruction homeschoolers receive, we are prepared academically to be productive and contributing members of today’s society,” said Smith. The average public school spends nearly $10,000 per child per year whereas the Progress Report shows that the average homeschool parent spends about $500 per child per year.

“Homeschooling is a rapidly growing, thriving education movement that is challenging the conventional wisdom about the best way to raise and educate the next generation,” said Smith. There are an estimated 2 million homeschooled children in the U.S. today, which is about 4% of the school-aged population, and homeschooling is growing at around 7% per year. – Link to Website

Codex Threatens Health of Billions – Your right to eat healthy food and use supplements of your choice is rapidly vanishing, but every effort has been made to keep you in the dark about the coming nutricide. Codex Alimentarius is scheduled for full global implementation on December 31, 2009 …

In 1995, the FDA issued a policy statement saying that international standards such as Codex would supersede U.S. laws governing all food. Under the Central American Free Trade Agreement, which is illegal under current U.S. law, but is legal under international law, the U.S. is required to conform to Codex as it stands on December 31, 2009, unless it creates its own guidelines and gets them approved under the two step process. Given current government sentiment, this seems unlikely. Besides, as guidelines are one-by-one chiseled into standards, time is running out. – Link to Web Site

Obama Administration To Impose Liberal UN Curriculum – by Allen Quist – …the Obama administration’s education reform efforts” in its “$4.35 billion Race to the Top,” will include “adopting internationally benchmarked education standards.” These will be national standards, said the press release, keyed to international standards and will be incentivized to the states with federal “stimulus” dollars. …

According to the announcement, this federal curriculum will consist of “internationally benchmarked” standards. The only extant comprehensive “internationally benchmarked” education standards are those developed by UNESCO, the UN’s education arm The UNESCO website clarifies that its education standards conform to the treaties and agreements of the UN. This means that its curriculum includes, for example, the requirements of the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) which says, “Education shall . . . further the activities of the United Nations” (Art. 26:2).

American schools used to teach the fundamental values of the United States-including the inalienable, God-given rights of life, liberty and property, as guaranteed by our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Not any more. Now our students will be indoctrinated in the UN’s definition of human rights. As clarified by the UN’s UDHR, our rights now may not “be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations” (Art 29:3). Our children will be taught that they have only those rights the UN says they have. …  – Link to Website

U.N. Report Advocates Teaching Masturbation to 5-Year-Olds The United Nations is recommending that children as young as five receive mandatory sexual education that would teach even pre-kindergarteners about masturbation and topics like gender violence. The U.N.’s Economic, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) released a 98-page report in June offering a universal lesson plan for kids ranging in age from 5-18, an “informed approach to effective sex, relationships” and HIV education that they say is essential for “all young people.”

The U.N. insists the program is “age appropriate,” but critics say it’s exposing kids to sex far too early, and offers up abstract ideas — like “transphobia” — they might not even understand. “At that age they should be learning about … the proper name of certain parts of their bodies,” said Michelle Turner, president of Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, “certainly not about masturbation.” Turner was disturbed by UNESCO’s plans to explain to children as young as nine about the safety of legal abortions, and to advocate and “promote the right to and access to safe abortion” for everyone over the age of 15. – Link to Website

Nebraska legislators seek to assert state sovereignty – At least three Nebraska lawmakers want to send a message to the federal government: Butt out of state business. Next year they will see if a majority of their colleagues agrees. The senators are working on resolutions asserting Nebraska’s sovereignty under the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. Nebraska wouldn’t try to secede from the union under their proposals but would go on record objecting to federal laws that they say go beyond constitutional authority. “My goal here is to shine light on the fact that the federal government is overstepping its bounds,” said State Sen. Tony Fulton of Lincoln. “We would be making a statement on behalf of Nebraska.”

The tension between states’ rights and federal authority has been a repeated theme in U.S. history, starting with arguments among the founding fathers. The struggle turned bloody when Southern states seceded, citing states’ rights on the question of slavery, and the Civil War ensued.  – Link to Website

Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms; our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Is President Obama Correct: Is America No Longer a Christian Nation? – Over the past several years, President Barack Obama has repeatedly claimed that America is not a Christian nation. He asserted that while a U. S. Senator, repeated it as a presidential candidate, and on a recent presidential trip to Turkey announced to the world that Americans “do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.” (He made that announcement in Turkey because he said it was “a location he said he chose to send a clear message.” ) Then preceding a subsequent trip to Egypt, he declared that America was “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world” (even though the federal government’s own statistics show that less than one-percent of Americans are Muslims.

The President’s statements were publicized across the world but received little attention in the American media. Had they been carried here, the President might have been surprised to learn that nearly two-thirds of Americans currently consider America to be a Christian nation and therefore certainly might have taken exception with his remarks. But regardless of what today’s Americans might think, it is unquestionable that four previous centuries of American leaders would definitely take umbrage with the President’s statements.

“As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible, avoiding occasions of expense by cultivating peace, but remembering also that timely disbursements to prepare for danger frequently prevent much greater disbursements to repel it, avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertion in time of peace to discharge the debts which unavoidable wars may have occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden which we ourselves ought to bear.”

He told me that the conversion of Israel has to take place before Jesus will come again.

Who Lost the Children? – …Where the Law of God is neglected—and it is neglected almost everywhere in churches today—all the benefits outlined above escape us. No appeal to some vaguely defined “law of love” can take the place in spiritual, moral, and ethical development that the Law of God is intended to fill. God is adamant about this. He warns us in the most severe terms that where men neglect the Law of God, the displeasure of the Lord will not be far away: “If one turns away his ear from hearing the Law, even his prayer is an abomination” (Proverbs 28:9). “So the Law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth” (Habakkuk 1:4). “And since you have forgotten the Law of your God, I also will forget your children” (Hosea 4:6).

To be blunt: The neglect of God’s Law, for the better part of the last two generations, is coming home to roost. Our young people are bailing out on the church, and our prayers that God will rescue them are falling on deaf divine ears. – Link to Website

Glenn Beck: The Letter – … I’m a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you’re willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now.… Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don’t care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. – Link to Website

“Let me …warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party …[it’s] common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it. …It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another,  …It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. …in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged.”

Dumbest Generation Getting Dumber – The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international comparison of 15-year-olds conducted by The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that measures applied learning and problem-solving ability. In 2006, U.S. students ranked 25th of 30 advanced nations in math and 24th in science. McKinsey & Company, in releasing its report “The Economic Impact of the Achievement Gap in America’s Schools” (April 2009) said, “Several other facts paint a worrisome picture. First, the longer American children are in school, the worse they perform compared to their international peers. In recent cross-country comparisons of fourth grade reading, math, and science, US students scored in the top quarter or top half of advanced nations. – Link to Website

Presidential Proclamation by Abraham Lincoln, March 30, 1863

Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.

And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.

And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!

It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness. …

Our Fading Heritage – Americans Fail a Basic Test on Their History and Institutions is the third major study conducted by ISI on the kind of knowledge required for informed citizenship. … Each year, approximately 14,000 freshmen and seniors at 50 schools nationwide were given a 60-question, multiple-choice exam on basic knowledge of America’s heritage. Both years, the students failed. The average freshman scored 51.7% the first year and 51.4% the next. The average senior scored 53.2%, then 54.2%. After all the time, effort, and money spent on college, students emerge no better off in understanding the fundamental features of American self-government.

Seventy-one percent of Americans fail the test, with an overall average score of 49%. Liberals score 49%; conservatives score 48%. Republicans score 52%; Democrats scored 45%. Fewer than half of all Americans can name all three branches of government, a minimal requirement for understanding America’s constitutional system. – Link to Website

American capitalism gone with a whimper –… the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people. …But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. …Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches…The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe. …

Whaddya mean, ‘America is not a Christian nation’? Congressmen challenge Obama assertion by drafting ‘spiritual heritage’ legislation – While Barack Obama has repeatedly claimed that the U.S. is “no longer a Christian nation,”  several members of Congress have taken a stand to boldly disagree.

A bipartisan group of 25 members of the House of Representatives earlier this month submitted H.Res. 397, which calls on Congress to affirm “the rich spiritual and religious history of our nation’s founding and subsequent history” and to designate the first week of May as America’s Spiritual Heritage Week for “the appreciation of and education on America’s history of religious faith.”

Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., specifically challenged the president’s claims that America is not a Christian nation in a news conference announcing the bill immediately following last week’s National Day of Prayer observance.

“The overwhelming evidence suggests that this nation was born and birthed with Judeo-Christian principles,” Forbes told reporters, “and I would challenge anybody to tell me that point in time when we ceased to be so, because it doesn’t exist.” The bill itself cites over 70 historical references and quotes from past presidents, Founding Fathers and Supreme Court decisions as proof that Judeo-Christian principles have been the foundation of our nation. – Link to Article

Lexington Memorial

This monument is erected by the inhabitants of Lexington, under the patronage and at the expense of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. To the memory of their fellow citizens, Ensign Robert Munroe, Jonas Parker, Samuel Hadley, Jonathan Harrington Jr., Isaac Mazzy, Caleb Harrington and John Brown of Lexington and Asah Porter of Woburn who fell on this field, the first victims to the sword of British tyranny and oppression. On the morning of the ever memorable 19th of April, 1775, the die was cast!!! The blood of the martyrs, in the cause of God and their country, was the cement of the Union of these States, the Colonies and gave the spring to the spirit, firmness and resolution of their fellow citizens. They rose as one man, to revenge their brethren’s blood and at the point of the sword, to assert and defend their native rights. They nobly dared to be free!! The contest was long, bloody and affecting. Righteous heaven approved the solemn appeal: victory crowned their arms and the peace, liberty and independence of the United Sates of America was their glorious reward.

Webster’s dictionary redefines ‘marriage’ Now includes references to same-sex relationships – One of the nation’s most prominent dictionary companies has resolved the argument over whether the term “marriage” should apply to same-sex duos or be reserved for the institution that has held families together for millennia: by simply writing a new definition. …The new definition references “marriage” as the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife. But the definition also includes “the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage.” – Link to Website

Hillary Clinton leaves flowers for Our Lady of Guadalupe, asks ‘Who painted it?’ –  During her recent visit to Mexico, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made an unexpected stop at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe and left a bouquet of white flowers “on behalf of the American people,” after asking who painted the famous image.

The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was miraculously imprinted by Mary on the tilma, or cloak, of St. Juan Diego in 1531. The image has numerous unexplainable phenomena, such as the appearance on Mary’s eyes of those present in the room when the tilma was opened and the image’s lack of decay.

Mrs. Clinton was received on Thursday at 8:15 a.m. by the rector of the Basilica, Msgr. Diego Monroy. Msgr. Monroy took Mrs. Clinton to the famous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which had been previously lowered from its usual altar for the occasion.

After observing it for a while, Mrs. Clinton asked “who painted it?” to which Msgr. Monroy responded “God!”

U.S. Ranked 36th Freest Press in the World – The post-9/11 world is now clearly drawn,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Destabilised and on the defensive, the leading democracies are gradually eroding the space for freedoms. The economically most powerful dictatorships arrogantly proclaim their authoritarianism, exploiting the international community’s divisions and the ravages of the wars carried out in the name of the fight against terrorism. Religious and political taboos are taking greater hold by the year in countries that used to be advancing down the road of freedom.”

“The world’s closed countries, governed by the worst press freedom predators, continue to muzzle their media at will, with complete impunity, while organisations such as the UN lose all authority over their members,” Reporters Without Borders added. “In contrast with this generalised decline, there are economically weak countries that nonetheless guarantee their population the right to disagree with the government and to say so publicly.”

Two aspects stand out in the index, which covers the 12 months to 1 September 2008. One is Europe’s preeminence. Aside from New Zealand and Canada, the first 20 positions are held by European countries. The other is the very respectable ranking achieved by certain Central American and Caribbean countries.

“Can any good be effected by taking from the States the moral rule of their citizens, and subordinating it to the general authority….Such an intention was impossible, and such a licentiousness of construction and inference, if exercised by both governments, as may be done with equal right, would equally authorize both to claim all power, general and particular, and break up the foundations of the Union. Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding, and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. …..

I believe the States can best govern our home concerns, and the General Government our foreign ones. I wish, therefore, to see maintained that wholesome distribution of powers established by the constitution for the limitation of both; and never to see all offices transferred to Washington, where, further withdrawn from the eyes of the people, they may more secretly be bought and sold as at market.”

Only 12% of Idahoans Would Choose Regular Public School if Given a Choice – A poll commissioned by the prestigious Friedman Foundation and co-sponsored by the Idaho Values Alliance and Education Excellence Idaho found that only 12% of Idahoans would chose a “regular public school” if they had a full range of options.

Even more striking, this figure drops to just 4% among Idahoans age 36-55, who are the chief consumers of public education services in Idaho. Said Bryan Fischer, Executive Director of the Idaho Values Alliance, “This is an astonishing number, because it tells us that the more Idaho’s parents use conventional public education, the less they like it. This is the most powerful argument possible for increasing school choice in the Gem State.”

The survey revealed that 25% of Idahoans would, however, choose charter schools, which are public schools free from much of the bureaucratic red tape that hampers education reform in conventional public schools. … – Link to Website

Among those who formerly held elected office, 68 percent incorrectly answered the question regarding the definition of the free enterprise system, 89 percent did not know the difference between a free market and central planning (socialism), and 85 percent did not know the source of the phrase “a wall of separation” between church and state. Perhaps these appalling results explain a lot about what is presently wrong with government at every level. …

On November 30th, the Josephson Institute released its report card on the “Ethics of American Youth” and the news is not good. The report, which is based on a survey of attitudes and behavior of 29,760 high school students nationwide, found entrenched habits of dishonesty in today’s young people.  

The report found that overall, 30 percent of America’s high school students—more than one third of the boys and over one fourth of the girls—admitted stealing from a store within the past year. When it comes to lying, 83 percent admitted to lying to their parents and 42 percent admitted to lying to save money, with boys leading the way at 49 percent and girls at 36 percent.

The survey also found that cheating in school is getting worse. Sixty-four percent admit they cheated on a test in the last year and of those, 38 percent admit doing it two or more times. …Perhaps the most disturbing finding from the survey is that 93 percent of the students said they were satisfied with their personal ethics and character and 77 percent said that “when it comes to doing what is right, I am better than most people I know.”

So what should we conclude from these two reports? For at least four decades, liberal activists have removed the core historical and religious principles that previous generations of Americans were taught in school and replaced them with politically correct dogma that undermines faith, character and patriotism. Consequently, we now have a large majority of high school and college students and adults who can’t pass a straightforward civics and history test and we have rampant corruption throughout government and the private sector. –  Link to Website

“The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind.”

– Benjamin Rush (1745-1813) Founding Father& signer of the Declaration of Independence

Report: 92 Percent of Americans Believe in God – A study released June 23, 2008, found that 92 percent of Americans believe in God, including about one in five who say they are atheists.

The survey by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life is the organization’s second report based on the U.S. Religious Landscape Survey, one of the largest polls ever conducted on Americans’ religious views, with more than 35,000 adults interviewed.The first report, released in February, examined the religious makeup of America. The second report states that 74 percent of Americans believe in heaven and 59 percent believe in hell. And a majority of people also believe that both angels and demons are working in the world, and that miracles occur today as they did in ancient times.  –  Link to Website    Link to Study

Court Bible Donation Program – The mission of Retired Judges of America is “to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity through the networking of retired and former judges who are committed to upholding the principles of America’s Organic Laws.*

Supreme Court Justices all sign the Harlan bible donated by Justice John Marshal Harlan in 1906. ….“We believe God wants a bible in every court in this nation, and soon.” “How is we started off saying that the oath of Federal Judges mandate acknowledgement of God. That “So Help Me God” is absolutely essential to the oath. How is it that we can force our Federal Judges, the same Congress that passed that passed the 1st Amendment …  they were aware of the no religious test requirement of Article 6 of the Constitution for office holders. How is it that the two can exist simultaneously, that is the mandatory acknowledgement of God by Federal Judges on the one hand, and the no religious test requirement of Article 6 on the other hand…. acknowledgement of God is not an unconstitutional establishment of religion or a violation of Church and State, rather it is a philosophy of government that goes to the heart of what America is all about.”

“And you, Ezra, according to the wisdom of your God which is in your hand, appoint magistrates and judges who may judge all the people in the province Beyond the River, all such as know the laws of your God; and those who do not know them, you shall teach.” Ezra 7:25 RSV

The concept of “Circuit Judges” comes from “Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life. And he went on a circuit year by year to Bethel, Gilgal, and Mizpah; and he judged Israel in all these places.” Samuel 7:15-16 RSV

“and said to the judges, “Consider what you do, for you judge not for man but for the LORD; he is with you in giving judgment. Now then, let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed what you do, for there is no perversion of justice with the LORD our God, or partiality, or taking bribes.” 2 Chronicles 19:6-7 RSV

Nude Virgin Mary cover prompts Playboy apology – A nude model resembling the Virgin Mary on the cover of the Mexican edition of Playboy magazine, published only days before a major Mexican festival dedicated to the mother of Jesus, prompted the company’s U.S. headquarters on Friday to apologize.

The magazine, which hit newsstands on Dec. 1 as ceremonies began leading to Friday’s pilgrimage to the Mexico City shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, showed a model wearing nothing but a white cloth over her head and breasts. She is standing in front of a stained glass window with the cover line, “We Love You, Maria” in Spanish. The model’s name is Maria Florencia Onori. The Virgin of Guadalupe, said to have appeared to a sixteenth century Indian peasant, is Mexico’s most revered Roman Catholic figure and the annual pilgrimage to the Mexico City basilica dedicated to her is one of the world’s largest religious events. –   Link to Audio

Americans are dangerously ignorant of U.S. history – Consider the staggering data: …  Fully 71 percent of Americans flunked a 33-question civic-literacy survey conducted by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute. Among 2,508 respondents ISI randomly selected, 1,791 failed this test of U.S. historical, political and economic basics. The average score was just 49 out of 100 – a solid F. While just 2.6 percent scored B’s on this quiz, only 0.8 percent earned A’s.  Just 49 percent of rank-and-file Americans can identify the legislature, executive and judiciary as our three branches of government.  Forty percent of college graduates have no idea that corporate profits equal revenues minus expenses. (Thus, congressional demagoguery about “windfall profits” falls on sympathetic ears.) Only 24 percent of college grads realize that the First Amendment forbids the establishment of an official U.S. religion.  Amazingly enough, this sample’s 164 self-identified elected officials know even less than laymen. They averaged only 44, as the blind lead the bland. Among officeholders, 30 percent did not know that the Declaration of Independence heralds “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  – Link to Website

Handshake Man Says He’ll Steer Clear Jan. 20 – A confounding and perhaps divinely inspired Inauguration Day tradition is coming to an end: Handshake Man says he can’t make it to the celebration Jan. 20. President-elect Barack Obama miss that special greeting experienced by Bill Clinton his second inauguration and George W. Bush at his first: An overcoated, entirely normal-looking man, whose only security clearance is his beatific smile, steps from the crowd after the swearing-in. He offers the new commander in chief a handshake, a medallion and a message from God. …

He was barred from trying to attend presidential events or entering the Capitol and White House  for five years.  Then last week, Weaver says, he was watching television when another message from God came to him. “The glory of the Lord has departed from the Democratic Party,” Weaver says, reading from the message. “You have chosen a secular messiah. . . . You will see the Democrats take America farther down the road to insecurity.” Tough words, and Weaver says he’s a little uncomfortable delivering them.  … But a message of God must not be edited, he says. –  Link to  Website

Michigan liberals attack Lansing congregation in the middle of Sunday worship – On Sunday morning, amidst worshiping congregants and following unifying prayers that our President-elect be granted wisdom as he prepares to lead our nation through difficult global, social and economic challenges, the Michigan left declared open war on peaceful church goers.

They did it with banners, chants, blasphemy, by storming the pulpit, by vandalizing the church facility, by potentially defiling the building with lewd, public, sex acts and by intentionally forcing physical confrontations with worshipers. This didn’t take place in some dystopian, post modern work of fiction and it didn’t take place in San Francisco or Berkley.  This was the scene at a Bible believing church in Lansing, Michigan. –  Link to Text Link to Website

“We Will Be Judged,” Says Bishop Aquila – … “When the soul separates from the body and comes before God, we will be judged on how we lived. It’s important to understand the reality of that judgment.” …”An intrinsic evil is anything that is always and at every time wrong – that can never be seen as a ‘good,’” he noted. He said abortion, contraception, premarital sex, same-sex acts and the taking of innocent human life during war are all intrinsic evils: “No society, and no person if he is Catholic, can ever support an intrinsic evil nor can he or she ever vote for someone who supports intrinsic evil. It is important to understand that, and to understand that truth especially in the upcoming election. “Because, yes, all of us will be judged by how we vote . –  Link to Text

A Nation Abandoned by God (Part 1 of 2) – Pastor John MacArthur – … But there’s this other category of the wrath of abandonment, it is a form of God’s wrath in which He lets go of a society and let’s it catapult full speed without restraint in the direction of its own sinful desires and devices and choices.  That’s the wrath being described here.  This is the cyclical reality of this wrath that has defined human history and will always until Jesus comes.  As Paul said, in all the generations gone by, God permitted the nations to go their own way.  

I don’t believe we’re waiting for God’s wrath in this society.  We haven’t had a massive calamity such as the destruction of an entire city, we certainly don’t want that to happen, pray that does not happen, but it could happen and God would be just in any calamity that He brought upon us.  We have not entered into eschatological wrath that comes in the end times, we are experiencing, all of us do, consequential wrath of sin.  But this massive concept of the wrath of abandonment I’m convinced is now at work in our society.  We’d like to talk about the fact that America was founded on Christian principles and God was at the center of it, and all of that, whatever it might have been in our founding, it’s no longer the way it is and I want to show you how you know that has happened. …. The first thing you look for in a society you’re trying to discern whether God has abandoned that society is whether or not that society has gone through a sexual revolution so that illicit sex, adultery, every form of immorality is accepted as normal in that society. And we’re there. The second step in the progression …

Somalian rape victim, 13, stoned to death – An Islamist rebel administration in Somalia has had a 13-year-old girl stoned to death for adultery after the child’s father reported that she was raped by three men.

Amnesty International said al-Shabab militia, which controls the southern city of Kismayo, arranged for 50 men to stone Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow in front of about 1,000 spectators. A lorry load of stones was brought to the stadium for the killing. Amnesty said Duhulow struggled with her captors and had to be forcibly carried into the stadium. – Link to Website

Hanged for being a Christian in Iran – Eighteen years ago, Rashin Soodmand’s father was hanged in Iran for converting to Christianity. Now her brother is in a Mashad jail, and expects to be executed under new religious laws brought in this summer. Alasdair Palmer reports. A month ago, the Iranian parliament voted in favour of a draft bill, entitled “Islamic Penal Code”, which would codify the death penalty for any male Iranian who leaves his Islamic faith. Women would get life imprisonment. The majority in favour of the new law was overwhelming: 196 votes for, with just seven against. Imposing the death penalty for changing religion blatantly violates one of the most fundamental of all human rights. –  Link to Website

Man Who Was In ‘Fast Lane’ Of Hollywood And Drugs Finds God, Kidnapped In A  Cave – BEVERLY Born in the highlands of the Andes mountains, he moved to Germany in his late teens, where he married and studied music before relocating to Hollywood and entering the music and film industries – as well as debauchery. It is not a pretty picture, although it is certainly a familiar one. There were endless girlfriends, there was the pot, cocaine, hallucinogenic drugs, there was the alcohol and dabbling in the occult – every stylish Sixties thing from Eastern religions to yoga and tarot cards. …. “The Lord conveyed to me that never in the history of humanity has the world been so far away from Him,” says Marino. “The state of idolatry has surpassed every single human cycle of the past that might be registered in the history of the sacred Scriptures. Our spiritual bankruptcy is of alarming dimension.”

Evolution Cannot Explain Left-Handed Molecules – Miller, in his famous experiment in 1953, showed that individual amino acids (the building blocks of life) could come into existence by chance. But, it’s not enough just to have amino acids. The various amino acids that make-up life must link together in a precise sequence, just like the letters in a sentence, to form functioning protein molecules. If they’re not in the right sequence the protein molecules won’t work. It has never been shown that various amino acids can bind together into a sequence by chance to form protein molecules. Even the simplest cell is made up of many millions of various protein molecules. … –  Link to Website

Movie “The Passion of the Christ” – Creator of film’s score ‘battled with Satan’ – BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – John Debney is used to writing movie scores for comedies like “Liar, Liar” and “Bruce Almighty,” but he admits that composing the score for Mel Gibson’s powerful movie “The Passion of the Christ” was the most difficult assignment of his life. For it turned out to be a battle between good and evil that he had never experienced before in some 20 years in Hollywood. “I don’t think I will ever be given the opportunity to write again for a movie as powerful as this one,” he said during a recent media interview in Beverly Hills.

“I was stretched every which way but loose,” Debney said. “I was stretched by Mel Gibson. I was stretched by the Guy Upstairs and also I was stretched by the guy downstairs. What it did was completely strengthen my faith and I have realized something very interesting. I had never before subscribed to the idea that maybe Satan is a real person, but I can attest that he was in my room a lot and I know that he hit everyone on this production.” Debney said that the battle he felt with Satan as he wrote the music became “really personal between us.” – Link to Website

Space Euphoria- Do Our Brains Change When We Travel in Outer Soace? – In February, 1971, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell experienced the little understood phenomenon sometimes called the “Overview Effect”.

He describes becoming instantly and profoundly aware that each of his constituent atoms were connected to the fragile planet he saw in the window and to every other atom in the Universe. He described experiencing an intense awareness that Earth, with its humans, other animal species, and systems were all one synergistic whole. He says the feeling that rushed over him was a sense of interconnected euphoria. He was not the first—nor the last—to experience this strange “cosmic connection”. Link to Website

Christian Coaches Face Off for Super Bowl XLI – For many people, football is religion. Superstar players are deified, weekly games are strictly observed, and everyone—devoted fan or not—watches the Super Bowl. But for Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith, football has not taken God’s place. The head coaches of the AFC champion Indianapolis Colts and the NFC champion Chicago Bears, who will lead their teams in Super Bowl XLI on Sunday, have a lot in common. As has been well documented, they share the distinction of being the first black head coaches in the Super Bowl. They are close friends, having coached together with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for five years. They are also Christians.

“God is the center of my life,” Smith told the media during a Super Bowl press conference earlier this week. “It controls all that I do. I hope I don’t have to spend my time telling my players I’m a Christian. I hope they see it in my life every day.” Smith and Dungy are not just Christians when the spotlight shines on them. Their day-to-day coaching styles and set of priorities stand out among a league of coaches obsessed with winning at all costs. Link to Website

Handshake Man gets probation – The Rev. Rich Weaver of Sacramento, known in Washington for his uncanny – divinely inspired? – ability to penetrate security and greet presidents, pleaded guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of unlawful entry. For the next five years, while on unsupervised probation, he may not attend presidential or congressional events or set foot on the grounds of the Capitol or White House.

“I feel with all my heart that God had given me a mandate to give a message to President Bush, which I did,” Weaver told The Post’s David Montgomery after his sentencing in D.C. Superior Court. “I didn’t feel I was guilty before God, but . . . I admitted guilt under man’s laws.”

The charge dated from two years ago, when Weaver attended the National Prayer Breakfast in the Hilton Washington without a ticket and slipped Bush a message that America must repent or face severe casualties in Iraq. But the Secret Service didn’t lodge the charge until last month, several days before Bush’s second inauguration. Weaver, 59, who had a ticket to the inauguration, was unaware he was wanted when a Capitol Police officer spotted him at a security checkpoint.

In his nondenominational ministry, Weaver said under oath, he has met six presidents on 14 occasions, usually chatting with them about Jesus. He has done the same with numerous senators and professional athletes. Link to Website

The Handshake Men – Unless your profession involves Presidential security then chances are you have neither heard of Richard C. Weaver or known how and why he earned the nickname, “Handshake Man”. Wikipedia explains:

Richard C. Weaver is a mysterious Californian man known by the nickname Handshake Man. Weaver has earned notoriety for the way he is frequently able to bypass the US Secret Service and shake the hand of the American President. Weaver has allegedly been able to personally shake hands with every US President since Jimmy Carter, in some cases even multiple times on different occasions. Not much is known about Weaver other than the fact that he is apparently a strong, possibly fundamentalist Christian of some sort. He is a self-proclaimed minister of a non-denominational church in Sacramento. His handshakes are often used as a way of passing “notes from God” to the presidents. According to his site, Richard C. Weaver is a born-again christian who…believes that God has directly spoke to him and calls him a “modern day prophet.” On February 6, 2003 Weaver attended the National Prayer Breakfast meeting and was able to hand Bush an eight page typed letter about Iraq “from God.” – Link to Website

A NOTE AFTER THE PASSING OF PRESIDENT’S DAY – 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.. … Is some supernatural agency in charge of history? …. President Abraham Lincoln had several visionary experiences. After learning that he’d been elected president, Lincoln twice saw a deathly image of himself in a mirror. It was an hallucination and a premonition that the presidency would spell his doom. …. There is an old idea that has been set aside today. It is the idea that all things are foreordained, that there is a divine plan. Perhaps we have been wrong to set this idea aside and forget the wisdom of our ancestors. …

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.” – Link to Website
