Blessings not realized

It is widely believed that the Book of Revelation is confusing, not understandable, and divisive. As a result, it is seldom taught from America’s pulpits. It should be noted that prophecies account More »

The arsonist or fire starter, the most vile of all creatures who dwell on this planet, come in two basic forms.

The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.

– Alexander Hamilton, 1775

Last week, concerning the topic of immigration, Politico did its best in attempting to “erase” and “obscure” all knowledge of the U.S. Constitution by helping spread more propaganda for this criminal administration.

Re: Penelope Cruz, husband Javier Bardem write open letter calling Israel’s actions “genocide”, New York Daily News

When people step out of their sphere of familiarity and take on a cause with a background of sheer ignorance, they just can’t connect the dots! Ay, que lastima (what a pity)! Such is the case of Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, director Pedro Almodovar and others.

The Judas Factor

The border crisis has created an anomaly in my thought process. I find myself in the peculiar and rare position of agreeing with Mr. Obama: a humanitarian crisis does exist at our southern border. In truth, I find it hard to look at the faces of all those young children and not feel compassion for their plight. It is the opinion of this writer that they are innocent victims being used to further blur the borders of these United States, thereby creating crisis of all kinds and manners for the purpose of ____well, I’ll leave it to the reader’s discretion to fill in the blank. Of course not all of those crossing illegally are children, some are gang members and it is also assumed that many may be Al Qaeda or other terrorist group members seizing the opportunity to enter the country easily and without documentation.

Lois Lerner: she-wolf

Lois Lerner, former head of the Exempt Organizations Division of the IRS, is every taxpayer’s nightmare of a tax agent. Like Zacchaeus, at least before Jesus passed through Jericho, she made herself one of the most despised women in America. She stands accused, in fact, of “showing the fig” (Greek sycophanteo I defraud by accusing falsely) as they used to call it in Zacchaeus’ day. In this case, Lois Lerner trumped-up evidence of wrongdoing or fatally irregular activity, in this case to deny tax-exempt status, or delay a finding until it no longer mattered.

HAMAS enforces lies

Hamas Damascus rally. What would those artistas thinki if they knew what these people really thought of them?

HAMAS (Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah, or Islamic Resistance Movement, or, as the word means in Arabic, “enthusiasm”) bears all the blame for civilian deaths in Gaza. They did more than start the war in Gaza. (In fact they’ve been at war with Israel since their founding, as their charter demands.) They do indeed launch rockets, and even run their war, from civilian areas. And they try to stop reporters from telling that story. Meanwhile, the world ignores Israeli efforts to keep the misery to a minimum.

Many Americans believe the US Government, the Democrat and Republican Parties and the media are deliberately misleading the American people, hiding the most heinous fraud and Constitutional crisis in the history of the United States.

Energy to change a calendar

On July 7, the National Creationism Examiner discussed the history of the calendar. At issue: the ancient Egyptians, of all people, had the best natural season indicator: the Nile flood season. Why, then, did they keep a 360-day calendar for centuries? The natural calendar of the earth changed. The Egyptians took time to readjust their official calendar, but they did, beginning with the Twelfth Dynasty (Amenamhāt I, the “Pharaoh who did not know Joseph.”)

The Ten Commandments: a proper blueprint for America

There is a common, worldly kind of Christianity in this day, which many have, and think they have enough – a cheap Christianity which offends nobody, and requires no sacrifice – which costs nothing, and is worth nothing.
