Ebola, CDC, and confusion

The biohazard symbol, a warning to follow protocol.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) seem unable to make up their minds how a patient harboring Ebola can give it to someone else. Have they confused themselves beyond repair? Or has someone told them to lie to us?

Time to save America

Ebola

A good argument can be made that America has been on a downward slide since the middle of the 20th century. Thanks to people like Lyndon B. Johnson, who robbed churches of their political voice with the 1954 Johnson Amendment; and Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood who fought for the legalization of abortion and her cohort Mary Calderone of SIECUS, America’s spiritual and moral decline escalated without much opposition. The problems that resulted and their root causes are now a part of America’s historical record. Those who choose to evaluate the causes of our downward spiral will find many benefactors of evil in addition to the ones named that legitimately deserve blame. But when push comes to shove, the fault of our decline is not resting squarely on the shoulders on the man now occupying the White House or his evil predecessors. It rests on ours.

Houston mayor withdraws demand for sermons

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Today, Annise Parker, Mayor of Houston, Texas, abruptly withdrew her demand that five area pastors turn their sermons over to a judge. She gave reasons for withdrawing that sound more political than legal.

Can you explain America?

Here is the price of freedom and an answer to tyranny

Picture this: You’re going to be meeting with George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. They want to know what has happened to America. What will you say?

Child removal for money?

The gavel: a symbol of judgment. Will same-sex marriage still fall before it?

Friends of the family of Kayla and Hannah Diegel informed CNAV yesterday of a strange, and shocking, judicial policy in Maricopa County, Arizona. Melissa Diegel and (until recently) her daughters live in Maricopa County. An allied child advocacy group obtained video showing a juvenile court judge instructing other judges on how to issue child removal orders to ensure federal funding. In summary, this judge told his fellow judges to issue an out-of-home child removal order, whether the circumstances fully warrant this or not. The reason: Departments of Child Protective Services do not receive federal funds for in-home child removal orders. Thus the federal government gives courts a money incentive to separate children from their families. Thus the federal government corrupts juvenile courts across the country.

Same-sex marriage: new block?

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand without comment several rulings by different Circuit Courts of Appeals. Result: same-sex marriage now is the law in up to 33 States. Everyone, including de facto President Barack Obama, assumed same-sex marriage would soon be the rule across the land. But a federal judge in Puerto Rico just threw up another roadblock. This could set up a “circuit split” to force the Court to rule even faster than it planned.

Thank you, Houston

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Recently the town council of Houston added its name to a long list of constitutional bullies. It recently attempted to infringe upon its citizens 1st Amendment rights by conducting a witch hunt against Houston’s churches in an attempt to find something that will justify removing their tax exempt status. But its actions may have proven that the proverbial last straw does actually exist when it comes to assaults against our rights to worship freely. Not only have Houston’s churches refused to submit to politically correct bullies; they have done what churches around the country should have been doing since 1954. When Lyndon B. Johnson subversively attached the Johnson Amendment to a piece of IRS legislation and silenced the political voice of the churches, the churches remained silent. But not this time. This time Houston may have gone too far and forced the churches to finally take a stand. And for that, we thank you, Houston!

Us v. them. Problem: us

Constitution Day meme. Can Liberty Amendments serve that purpose?

In a world with an “us versus them” mentality, it’s always “them” that are the problem… right? We’re never the cause of our own troubles, that would be unthinkable. It’s always the other guy who fouls everything up. We’re innocent. If only the whole world were left to us, it would be a utopian paradise.

Whom to blame?

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Over the past 5 years this country has endured some of the most outrageous, incompetent, racially divisive, unbelievably stupid and downright incomprehensible actions that even the most cynical among us could ever have imagined.

Satan’s 1st Amendment twist

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Our Founders’ experience with a government that had exceeded its logical, moral, and spiritual authority greatly influenced the Constitution they would eventually design. In our Declaration of Independence they expressed their reasons for declaring their independence from tyranny along with their belief that government’s primary role was to protect our God-given rights. Our Constitution and form of government was based on those basic beliefs about what government should be and how it should be limited in order to protect our God-given right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Immediately after ratification of the Constitution, our Founders agreed that they needed to amend the Constitution in order to protect our rights as citizens in addition to limiting government. And so the first 10 Amendments that are referred to as our Bill of Rights were born. The name The Bill of Rights appropriately became the reference for these first 10 amendments because that’s what they were: amendments to protect our rights as distinguished from the Constitution that was designed to limit government.
