Iran Just Shipped Missiles to Venezuela. Hello? Is This Thing On? - A massive security threat just blossomed, and you'd be hard-pressed to find an MSM or administration official who cares. – by Mike McDaniel -  Among the two most alarming revelations is the already completed sale and delivery, to Venezuela by Russia, of nearly 2,000 advanced, shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles capable of hitting aircraft as high as 19,000 feet. Equally and perhaps more alarming is an October agreement between Iran and Venezuela. The agreement establishes a joint ground-to-ground missile base on Venezuelan soil and calls for the sharing of missile technology and the training of technicians and officers. In addition, Venezuela may use the missiles as it chooses for “national needs” and in case of “emergency.” Several types of missiles will be deployed, giving Venezuela the ability to strike targets throughout South and Central America and throughout the U.S. … - Link to Website

Karl Marx, Founding Father? Survey Shows Knowledge Gaps – By Erik Robelen – It's not exactly news that many Americans are a bit weak in their knowledge of civics and history, but new survey results help put the situation in sharp relief. The most striking finding was that nearly half of U.S. adults identified a phrase popularized by Karl Marx—"from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"—as coming from one of America's founding documents. Of the 42 percent of respondents who incorrectly identified the phrase, the most common response was that it could be found in the Bill of Rights.  - Link to Website

NH Democratic Party accused of ‘religious intolerance’ - By Patrick Hynes - The head of a pro-family political group in New Hampshire accused the New Hampshire Democratic Party of “religious intolerance” on Thursday for criticizing a Christian state legislator for conducting what it called “a religious tirade” at a Christian gathering in September.


Democratic spokeswoman Harrell Kirstien accused Republican State Rep. David Bates of attempting to impose a “Bible belt social agenda” after video surfaced of Bates saying “the only hope for America” is to “turn from our wicked ways and ask god to heal our land” and “the problem we have here in this country and in all of our states is that we no longer fear god” at New England Solemn Assembly in Plymouth Massachusetts. …


“The NHDP’s mischaracterization of Representative Bates’ faith are not only rooted in religious bigotry, but represents the height of hypocrisy for a party that supposedly prides itself in being tolerant of other’s beliefs,” Smith said. “ The NHDP owes Rep. Bates and the hundreds of thousands of Christians in this state an apology for his truly offensive and ignorant remarks.”  - Link to Website


David Bates, State Representative from New Hampshire speech - Godly leaders in the Government: - Link to Video


Text from David Bates’ speech

I bring you greeting from your neighbors to the north in the Granite State …  It truly is an honor for me to join with you here in the birth place of America, to pray for America. And America needs prayer. You have heard it before, but I will say it again it bears repeating that American needs to humble itself in pray and to seek Gods face. We, we need to turn from our wicked ways and ask God to heal our land. He will hear from heaven, He will forgive our sins and He will heal our land. My friends that is the hope of America, that in fact is the only hope of America.


I am very please to tell you that the winds of change are beginning to blow blowing again back in New Hampshire. We are about to see a very dramatic shift in the government in New Hampshire. But let me hasten to say that change in power in our legislature is not what my hopes is based on. The hope for New Hampshire, and the hope of Massachusetts and the hope of New England and all of America does not rest in the success or defeat of a political party. And I am here to tell you today unequivocally, as a Republican, the Republican Party is not our savior.


The problem we have here in this our land, our country and each of our States is we no longer fear God. We as a nation have forgotten God. We have left our first love and oh what heights we have fallen from. Our forefathers who established this Republic they understood the reality that seems to evade so many people today day. They recognized that righteous exalt a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.


Our national sins are a disgrace, and really have no reason to expect blessings from God, if we continue to call evil, what God says is good. While embracing, while embracing and not just tolerating, but embracing and affirming what God condemns as sin. Our forefathers understood these principles. They understood that righteous exalts a nation, but sin will destroy it. …


 “A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God. Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations binds, can have any real Good Will towards Men? Can he be a patriot who, by an openly vicious conduct, is undermining the very bonds of Society? ... The Scriptures tell us “righteousness exalteth a Nation.”

— Abigail Adams (1744-1818) Wife of John Adams, Mother & Patriot  


“If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be if without it.”

"The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good.”

— Psalms 14:1 RSV


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

“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.”

Nickle and Dimed: Another Example of Socialist Activism in our Classrooms - by Ann-Marie Banfield – … Recently parents of a high school student discovered a book had been assigned to their son in a Personal Finance class.  After reading the book, the parents determined this book was not appropriate reading material for a 16 year old and wasn’t quality material one would expect to find in a Personal Finance class.


They went through the proper channels in an effort to either remove the book or remove parts of the book they found to be the most offensive.  Some of the most offensive parts to the book were: the profanity, references to Jesus and people of faith that readers would find offensive and instructions on how to clear your urine if you use drugs prior to applying for a job.


I think the average person expects a personal finance text to offer students information on banking, insurance, balancing a checkbook and other important financial matters that will face these kids as they move into adulthood.  What we found was, a book written by a social activist being used in  a Personal Finance class in an attempt to change the values, beliefs and attitudes of the students. …


So what are we trying to teach students in Personal Finance?  Instructional value in what?  The author is an avowed Marxist pushing her own Socialist agenda on those who read her books.  Does Personal Finance now equal political indoctrination?  That certainly seems to be the instructional value one would acquire after reading a book from a political activist who has an obvious agenda within her book. … Those who promote Marxism tend to be the ones who don’t appreciate having to live within that utopia.

“No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” - By Marti Oakley - Washington D.C., known more these days as the “district of criminals” commits so many crimes each day as a collective body that a moratorium on government should be declared until we can clean this nest of globalists … As congress moves forward with plans to end our sovereignty, as they collude with foreign interests to take our jobs, to destroy our culture and to subject us to international laws and agreements harmful to us as a nation, we need to remember who we are.  We are not globalists; we are Americans.  We are not “citizens” of some new world. … The greatest threat America faces on a day to day basis are those who masquerade as protectors and defenders of the American people.   D.C. has long since ceased to be of any value to the public although corporations and the obscenely rich find a home away from home in this ten square mile district.


We are also standing on the edge of a precipice and if we don’t stand up and collectively demand a return to, and an affirmation of, who we are and what has bound us together for more than 200 years, we will be driven over the edge into an unimaginable abyss. … Consider this opinion of the Supreme Court:


Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principals follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it . . . A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one.

An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law.

Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it is superseded thereby.

No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.  - Link to Website

E pluribus buffoonum? Congress slams Obama - Lawmakers say president's omitting of God undercuts American history - By Bob Unruh – Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus have written to President Obama asking him to correct a speech he gave in Indonesia incorrectly replacing the nation's motto of "In God We Trust" with "E pluribus unum." … "'E pluribus unum' is not our national motto," the letter, dated yesterday, said. "As members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, a bipartisan group of members of the United States House of Representatives, we are dedicated to preserving America's religious heritage and protecting our religious liberty." - Link to Website


Members of the Prayer Caucus to President Obama: Issue Correction for Inaccurate Reference of National Motto President Obama Inaccurately States National Motto is “E Pluribus Unum” … Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04), along with 42 bipartisan Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, today sent a letter to President Barack Obama calling on him to issue a correction to a speech he gave in Jakarta, Indonesia, in which he inaccurately referred to our national motto as being “E Pluribus unum.” The official national motto is “In God We Trust.”


“For the President of the United States to incorrectly state something as foundational as our national motto in another country is unacceptable. The President is the primary representative of our nation to the world, and whether mistake or intention, his actions cast aside an integral part of American society,” … “In God We Trust” has been a foundational phrase used throughout our nation’s history, from Presidential proclamations, to engravings in both the House and Senate chambers, to the oath taken by all federal employees. In 1956, Congress passed and President Eisenhower signed into law establishing “In God We Trust” as the official national motto of the United States. The motto is referred to in the national anthem and is engraved on U.S. coins and currency. - Link to Website

These are the glories of a generation past away,—what are the duties, which they devolve upon us? … [To] bear true allegiance to that Sovereign [God], upon the principles set forth in that paper [Declaration of Independence].

University: Dump Christian beliefs on homosexuality, or else Demands student get re-educated, attend 'pride' event - By Drew Zahn - Augusta State University graduate student Jen Keeton alleges school officials demand she be re-educated in morality, giving her the choice of giving up her Christian beliefs on homosexuality or being expelled from the school's counseling program. .. According to a complaint filed against the school earlier this year, school officials demanded Keeton, 24, go through a "remediation" program after she asserted homosexuality is a behavioral choice, not a "state of being" as a professor said.


Specifically, the remediation program was to include "sensitivity training" on homosexual issues, additional outside study on literature promoting homosexuality and the plan that she attend a "gay pride parade" and report on it. - Link to Website

"In Hebrew and in the Bible right and left are not directional, they are moral. … In the Hebrew, text going left means departing from the moral foundations of civilization. … Right and left always means good and evil, right and wrong, light and darkness, the moral structure of civilization Vs the structure barbarism and emptiness. So God says how can I destroy the city of Nineveh when they don’t know right from left or in other words, right from wrong. People who don’t know their right from wrong how can you punish them. That is what it means. Up and down in scripture means exactly the same thing, up is always toward God, down is away.”

“Those are big words for little kids,” parent Dan Manchester said outside school Thursday. Ellis said he didn’t plan on asking the students to repeat back the words out loud, but decided to do so because of the reaction in the crowd. “I said, ‘socialism,’” he explained. “There were three adults standing about 10 feet in front of me. Their mouths dropped open in disbelief. “I looked at the kids. They looked at me like they never heard that word before,” Ellis continued. “Then I get the bright idea that I would have them repeat the words, so they’d remember it.”


Ellis said he doesn’t think kids today are learning as much as they should about American history. “I don’t think we’re teaching enough about the Constitution,” he said. “People forget about the Cold War. They forget about Vietnam. Korea is almost forgotten.”  - Link to Website

Does the Pledge of Allegiance still carry the same meaning it used to? - By Hannah Zeltner - The Pledge of Allegiance is recited in schools all across America on a daily basis yet unfortunately it has become a blind ritual with a dwindling meaning. In stating the pledge, every American promises to be true to the US and to display an ongoing gratitude for the freedom our nation provides. It proclaims that the innumerable men, women, and children, who have given their lives throughout the centuries to grant us liberty, have not perished unrecognized.


Yet with the lack of regard from students it truly has no meaning anymore. The days of patriotic fever are no longer visible.


Recently a federal appeals court had upheld a New Hampshire law that requires schools to designate a time each day for students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, however speaking remains voluntary. The court believed the law to be “not the advancement of religion, but the advancement of patriotism.” … - Link to Website

Failure to educate - The Boston school system is churning out illiterate students whose only skills are to pass predictable standard tests - By Junia Yearwood - I DID not attend a graduation ceremony in 25 years as a Boston public high school teacher. This was my silent protest against a skillfully choreographed mockery of an authentic education — a charade by adults who, knowingly or unwittingly, played games with other people’s children. I knew that most of my students who walked across the stage, amidst the cheers, whistles, camera flashes, and shout-outs from parents, family, and friends, were not functionally literate. They were unable to perform the minimum skills necessary to negotiate society: reading the local newspapers, filling out a job application, or following basic written instructions; even fewer had achieved empowering literacy enabling them to closely read, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate text.

"Now it doesn't require expropriation or confiscation of private property or business to impose socialism on a people.

(cheers) You see, I learned early on in this campaign -- in fact, it's what propelled me to enter it -- that what this race was about, was about the great future that lies ahead for our country, a future that Americans know is there for the taking. … I know America's great, not because I read about it in a book, but because I've seen it with my eyes.  I've been raised in a community of exiles, of people who lost their country, of people who know what it's like to live somewhere else.  By the way, a community that I am proud to be a part of. ...  A community of men and women that were once my age, and when they were they had dreams like we have now, and yet they lost all those things through an accident of history.  No matter where I go or what title I may achieve, I will always be the son of exiles.  - Link to Website

Iowans dismiss three justices - Three Iowa Supreme Court justices lost their seats Tuesday in a historic upset fueled by their 2009 decision that allowed same-sex couples to marry. … Their removal marked the first time an Iowa Supreme Court justice has not been retained since 1962, when the merit selection and retention system for judges was adopted.

Woman seeks 'Christian roommate,' state cites her for discrimination - Michigan alleges notice posted on church billboard breaks rules - By Bob Unruh - A single, 31-year-old woman in Michigan who posted a note on her church bulletin board seeking a "Christian roommate" to share her residence has been cited by the state for violating the Fair Housing Act by discriminating against those of other faiths. The complaint signed by Tyra Khan, a "Civil Rights Representative" of the state of Michagan Department of Civil Rights. … "Christians shouldn't live in fear of being punished by the government for being Christians.

They produced the timeless documents upon which the Nation is rounded and has grown great.

Make sure history isn’t left in the dust - By Roger Desrosiers -… Knowledge of history and related disciplines is the cornerstone of learning about liberty in a democratic society. Without history, we have little to write about, little to relate to, little that connects our lives with the past and the future.


History is uniquely important in the United States. We’re a country based on principles, not ethnicity or religion. Knowledge of shared civic ideals is what binds us as a nation. As we approach an important election, historians, journalists, think tanks, politicians, and many in the media bemoan the fact that so many citizens lack the understanding of history, geography, economics, and civics needed to make informed choices.


Sadly, the data lend credence to their concerns… Intercollegiate Studies Institute gave more than 2,500 randomly selected Americans a test consisting of 33 straightforward civics questions. More than 70 percent failed; the average grade was a 49… But right here in the cradle of liberty, the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education has postponed making passage of an MCAS test in U.S. history a high school graduation requirement. The move will result in a continued marginalization of the discipline….- Link to Website

"In Hebrew and in the Bible right and left are not directional, they are moral. And think about this for a second, according to ancient Jewish wisdom, right and left do not exist. It’s a meaningless human convention…In chapter 13 of Genesis when Lot and Abraham separate and Abraham caries the moral structure of civilization, Abraham is the soul of monotheism, Abraham walks not with God, but ladies and gentlemen, before God. …Leadership means walking in front of God and knowing that He is behind you. Lot separates from Abraham and chooses to go and live in the city of Sodom. … Lot goes to live there, Isn’t it odd that he is described in the conversation with Abraham; he is described as going to the left. It should say he is going to the east. … Abraham says I’ll go right; you are going to go left.* In the Hebrew, text going left means departing from the moral foundations of civilization. Now you will understand ancient Jewish wisdom on the closing verse of the book of Jonah. Jonah was all very upset that God did not destroy the city of Nineveh. .. God said how I can destroy them; they are people who don’t know their right from their left. …Right and left always means good and evil, right and wrong, light and darkness, the moral structure of civilization Vs the structure barbarism and emptiness. So God says how can I destroy the city of Nineveh when they don’t know right from left or in other words, right from wrong.** People who don’t know their right from wrong how can you punish them. That is what it means. Up and down in scripture means exactly the same thing, up is always toward God, down is away.”

Tea Parties – Same Song, Second Verse - David Barton -  America's first Tea Party in 1773 was not an act of wanton lawlessness but rather a deliberate protest against heavy-handed government and excessive taxation. Its leaders took great care to ensure that nothing but tea was thrown overboard – no other items were damaged. The "Indians" even swept the decks of the ships before they left.


Tea Parties occurred not only in Boston but also in numerous other locales. And those who participated were just ordinary citizens expressing their frustration over a government that had refused to listen to them for almost a decade. Their reasonable requests had fallen on deaf ears. Of course, the out-of-touch British claimed that the Tea Parties were lawless and violent, but such was not the case.


Interestingly, in many ways, today's Tea Parties parallel those of long ago. But rather than protesting a tax on tea, today they are protesting dozens of taxes represented by what they call the Porkulus/Generational Theft Act of 2009 (officially called the "American Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act"). For Tea Party members (and for most Americans), that act and the way it was passed epitomizes a broken system whose arrogant leaders often scorn the concerns of the citizens they purport to represent. …


Citizens are angry about the current direction of government. As John Zubly, a member of the Continental Congress in 1775, reminded the British: "My Lord, the Americans are no idiots, and they appear determined not to be slaves. Oppression will make wise men mad." But does that anger automatically equate to violence? Of course not. It does equate to action, however; but instead of throwing tea overboard, modern Tea Parties are throwing out-of-touch politicians from both parties overboard.


The Tea Parties represent much of what is right in America – citizens reacquainting themselves with the Constitution and holding their elected officials accountable to its standards. Two centuries ago, Daniel Webster could have been talking to today's Tea Party rallies when he said: "Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution!"  - Link to Website


“My Lord, the Americans are no idiots, and they appear determined not to be slaves. Oppression will make wise men mad, but oppressors in the end frequently find that they were not wise men; there may be resources even in despair sufficient to render any set of men strong enough not to be bound in all cases whatsoever. Your Lordship believes a Supreme Ruler of the earth, and that the small and great must stand before Him at last—would your Lordship be willing, at the general meeting of all mankind, to take a place among those who destroyed or enslaved empires, or risk your future state on the merit of having, at the expense of British blood and treasure, taken away the property, the life and liberty of the largest part of the British empire? Can your Lordship think those who fear the Lord will not cry to Him against their oppressors? And will not the Father of mankind hear the cries of the oppressed? Or would you be willing that their cries and tears should rise against you as a forward instrument of their oppression?”

“Gentlemen indulge too many unreasonable apprehensions of danger to the state governments. They seem to suppose that the moment you put men into the national council they become corrupt and tyrannical, and lose all their affection for their fellow citizens. But can we imagine that the senators will ever be so insensible of their own advantage as to sacrifice the genuine interest of their constituents? The state governments are essentially necessary to the form and spirit of the general system. As long, therefore, as Congress has a full conviction of this necessity, it must, even upon principles purely national, have as firm an attachment to the one as to the other. This conviction can never leave its members unless they become madmen (& women). While the Constitution continues to be read, and its principles known, the states must, by every rational man, be considered as essential component parts of the Union; and therefore the idea of sacrificing the former to the latter is totally inadmissible.”

Bailout reaches $3.7 Trillion - Total US govt financial system support seen at $3.7 trln – Reuters – … Indeed, the current outstanding balance of overall Federal support for the nation's financial system...has actually increased more than 23% over the past year, from approximately $3.0 trillion to $3.7 trillion -- the equivalent of a fully deployed TARP program -- largely without congressional action, even as the banking crisis has, by most measures, abated from its most acute phases," the TARP inspector general, Neil Barofsky, wrote in the report. The total includes Federal Reserve programs and a myriad of asset guarantees, including Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. protection for bank deposits.

Like the nations that the LORD makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God.”

“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 exertions in time of peace to discharge the debts which unavoidable wars have occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden which we ourselves ought to bear.”

— George Washington (1732-1799) Father of the Country, 1st President of the United States


"As parents, we can have no joy, knowing that this government is not sufficiently lasting to ensure any thing which we may bequeath to posterity: And by a plain method of argument, as we are running the next generation into debt, we ought to do the work of it, otherwise we use them meanly and pitifully. In order to discover the line of our duty rightly, we should take our children in our hand, and fix our station a few years farther into life; that eminence will present a prospect, which a few present fears and prejudices conceal from our sight."

"No free government now exists in the world, unless where Christianity is acknowledged, and is the religion of the country. Christianity is part of the common law of this State. It is not proclaimed by the commanding voice of any human superior, but expressed in the calm and mild accents of customary law. Its foundations are broad, and strong, and deep; they are laid in the authority, the interest, the affections of the people.

Bias and bigotry in academia – Patrick Buchanan - A decade ago, activist Ron Unz conducted a study of the ethnic and religious composition of the student body at Harvard. Blacks and Hispanics, Unz found, were then being admitted to his alma mater in numbers approaching their share of the population. And who were the most underrepresented Americans at Harvard? White Christians and ethnic Catholics. Though two-thirds of the U.S. population then, they had dropped to one-fourth of the student body. Comes now a more scientific study from Princeton sociologists Thomas Espenshade and Alexandria Radford to confirm that a deep bias against the white conservative and Christian young of America is pervasive at America's elite colleges and Ivy League schools. …To achieve even these percentages, however, the discrimination against white and Asian applicants, because of the color of their skin and where their ancestors came from, is astonishing. …


For admissions officers at our top private and public schools, diversity is "a code word" for particular prejudices. For these schools are not interested in a diversity that would include "born-again Christians from the Bible belt, students from Appalachia and other rural and small-town areas, people who have served in the U.S. military, those who have grown up on farms or ranches, Mormons, Pentecostals, Jehovah's Witnesses, lower- and middle-class Catholics, working class 'white ethnics,' social and political conservatives, wheelchair users, married students, married students with children or older students just starting into college and raising children." …


Many of these elite public and private colleges and universities benefit from U.S. tax dollars through student loans and direct grants. The future flow of those tax dollars should be made contingent on Harvard and Yale ending racial practices that went out at Little Rock Central High in 1957. - Link to Website

“History affords us many instances of the ruin of states, by the prosecution of measures ill suited to the temper and genius of their people. The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy.

Don’t Know Much About History? - By Marist Poll - There’s good news for American education.  About three-quarters of residents — 74% — know the U.S. declared its independence from Great Britain in 1776.  The bad news for the academic system — 26% do not.  This 26% includes one-fifth who are unsure and 6% who thought the U.S. separated from another nation.  That begs the question, “From where do the latter think the U.S. achieved its independence?”  Among the countries mentioned are France, China, Japan, Mexico, and Spain.  -  Link to Website

Andy Grove: Knowledge Work Isn't Enough – by Chris Murphy - Intel co-founder Andy Grove doesn't have all the answers in his Bloomberg column on "How to Make an American Job Before It's Too Late." But he makes one opinion clear: The U.S. can't innovate if it doesn't also build stuff.


Among many intriguing ideas in the full colum, which you should read, Grove attacks the notion that the U.S. can focus on knowledge work, doing the design and engineering and feeling comfortable leaving the manufacturing to lower-cost countries.


He offers two main reasons. One, that approach just doesn't create enough jobs. Writes Grove:


Startups are a wonderful thing, but they cannot by themselves increase tech employment. Equally important is what comes after that mythical moment of creation in the garage, as technology goes from prototype to mass production. This is the phase where companies scale up. They work out design details, figure out how to make things affordably, build factories, and hire people by the thousands. Scaling is hard work but necessary to make innovation matter. The scaling process is no longer happening in the U.S. And as long as that's the case, plowing capital into young companies that build their factories elsewhere will continue to yield a bad return in terms of American jobs.  - Link to Website

Rescuing our kids (& country) from Karl Marx – by Steve Farrell - It bears repeating: If we hope to halt, reverse and permanently alter America's descent into the gutter of debauchery and that political tyranny that is forever its companion — "education is the key."


And if so, it must be, it can only be that that education is initiated, financed, and controlled by parents, not by Karl Marx and the Almighty State; no, nor by anyone far removed from our home, our values, our input, and our right to say, "You're fired!"


Of course, Marx, and every godless statist there ever was and is, knew the road to their Godless tyranny was lined with schools, colleges, and universities created, funded, and controlled by the state ... and the more centralized that control the better.


He also recognized the absolute necessity of an ongoing propaganda and legal campaign against parent controlled models like home schools, church schools, private schools, and small locally funded-locally controlled public schools; and this too: against any and all curricula that defends or promotes God, eternal truth, moral responsibility, the traditional family, limited government, the United States Constitution, the Free Enterprise System, and of course, private property. In short, an ongoing war against the very foundation, tools, weapons, and inspiration of free men.


A Brief Review From the Mouth of Marx and Co: In 1932 Communist Party USA founder, William Z. Foster, outline in his book Toward Soviet America "the elementary measures the American Soviet government will adopt to further the cultural revolution." His target was America's schools. His strategy:


[S]tudies will be revolutionized, being cleansed of religious, patriotic and other features of the bourgeois ideology. The students will be taught on the basis of Marxian dialectical materialism, internationalism and the general ethics of the new Socialist society. Present obsolete methods of teaching will be superseded by a scientific pedagogy …


As to those "other features of the bourgeois ideology" that were to be 'cleansed' the traditional family topped the list. Recall, if you will, communism founder Karl Marx bragging that he and his comrades would "Abolish the family!" Why? Because the traditional family was the transmission belt of christian and capitalist values. Plain and simple. The traditional family had to go; and with it home schools, private schools, and old-styled public schools where parents were the employers, the curriculum chiefs, the bosses over the neighborhood school. ... - Link to Website

"At the establishment of our Constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the Constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secured against all liability to account."

What Americans don't know about their history - By Valerie Strauss - A new poll gauging American knowledge on a basic question about the nation’s history — “From which country did the United States win its independence?“ — is either good news or bad news, depending on your expectations: Twenty-six percent of those surveyed did not know that the United States achieved its independence from Great Britain, according to the poll, conducted by the nonprofit Marist Institute for Public Opinion.

Six percent named a different country, including France, China, Japan, Mexico and Spain.


Twenty percent said they weren’t sure. …More depressing results — depending on your expectations — were found in a 2007 poll conducted by the U.S. Mint.


It showed that only 7 percent of those surveyed could name the first four Presidents in order: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.


Thirty percent knew that Jefferson was the third President, 57 percent identified Jefferson as the main author of the Declaration of Independence, and 57 percent knew that Washington led the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War.

Howard Davidowitz: U.S. Economy "Is a Complete Disaster" -  The U.S. economy is in shambles and Americans will continue to see high unemployment and lower living standards in the years to come, Howard Davidowitz tells Henry and Aaron in the accompanying clip.  Davidowitz lays much of the blame for the economy's woes at the feet of the Obama administration, which he calls “the worst of my lifetime.”


Obama "Mr. Mass Destruction"


Davidowitz says that the key to Obama's success is his ability to sell his policies to the public. He can confidently read from a teleprompter and appear competent and in control, when in reality, "it's one big bag of empty words," Davidowitz says of Obama's messages.


Davidowitz contends that the President's spending, including the health-care bill, is creating massive deficits that will take the U.S. years to dig itself out of.  "He is Mr. Mass Destruction," Davidowitz says of Obama. "I mean he is a human destroyer. This guy has spent his way into oblivion and we don't have a budget. He is surrounded by a bunch of complete incompetents, led by himself. "


Housing Gloom


As far as the actual economy goes, Davidowitz's chief concern is the strained state of the housing market, from which the bad news continues to pour in. According to Davidowitz, Americans are facing an $8 trillion negative wealth effect from the bursting of the housing bubble. "We're talking about some serious money here,".  - Link to Website

And if you forget the LORD your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you this day that you shall surely perish. Like the nations that the LORD makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God.”

America’s Fourth Debt - St. Thomas Aquinas wrote that every person has three debts that he can never repay: to God, who created him; to his parents, who gave him life and nurtured him; and to the nation that formed and educated him.


But on July 4, as we celebrate our nation’s freedom, we have a fourth unpayable debt to acknowledge. The men and women who went before us — pioneers and GIs, innovators and laborers — have left us a legacy of freedom from fear and freedom from want as they built a superpower.


America isn’t powerful enough to win all its wars or even its arguments, but it stands for now as King of the Hill, unmatched in its military and economic might.


But has America really ever been about power? The founders never sought it, after all. They sought something totally different, and that’s our fourth debt.


Greatness. Its economy or its military will never make a nation great. We don’t celebrate the “greatness” of the Soviet Union or of the Ottoman Empire or of Babylon. Greatness comes from principle. More than being King of the Hill, the first generations saw America as a “city on a hill.” …


the Declaration of Independence spells out is intimately linked to a moral order governed by God the Creator: “The framers of this nation’s founding documents … proclaimed the ‘self-evident truth’ that all men are created equal and endowed with inalienable rights grounded in the laws of nature and of nature’s God. The course of American history demonstrates the difficulties, the struggles, and the great intellectual and moral resolve which were demanded to shape a society which faithfully embodied these noble principles.”…

The Relentless Effort to Control the News - The Constitution is quite clear: "Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press. …"  This treasured principle of freedom is unknown in most of the world and greatly compromised in many nations.  Canada, Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Ireland, Slovenia, Norway, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Austria, Sweden, Belgium, Australia, and France all provide subsidies to the press ranging from $7 billion to $35 billion per year.


The Obama administration, and some in Congress, are looking for ways that government might exert more control over free speech, and particularly over the press.


Since 1987, when the Fairness Doctrine was abandoned by the Federal Communications Commission, every Democratic majority in Congress has tried to restore it.  Through its power to license broadcast stations, the FCC, through the Fairness Doctrine, gave the federal government the power to force radio and television stations to air content that countered opinions and points of view the government didn't like. The sad result of the Fairness Doctrine was a chilling effect on all controversial opinions. Broadcasters simply chose to avoid controversial programming that might invoke an FCC-required Fairness Doctrine response.


A more sophisticated effort is now under way to give government control of the information available to the public. "News" is what newspapers, radio and television, and now the Internet deliver to the public.  "News," it is argued, is what provides the information needed for a free people to make intelligent public-policy decisions.  Therefore, "news" is a public good, in much the same way that the national defense and highways are public goods.  Consider the reasoning of University of Illinois professor Robert McChesney in a paper prepared for a   Federal Trade Commission workshop:


The starting point for exiting this dead-end street is the recognition that journalism is best understood as increasingly having the attributes of a public good, not a private good.  It is like military defense, physical infrastructure, education, public health, and basic research in that regard.  It is something society requires, and people want, but the market cannot generate in sufficient quantity or quality.  It requires government leadership to exist.  There may be an important role for the private sector, but with public goods the government plays quarterback, or the game never starts.


If it is appropriate for government to pay for national defense and highways, then it must be equally appropriate for government to pay for "news." This is the logic that prevails in Europe and is being advanced here. ... - Link to Website


Constitution of the United States: Bill of Rights  

Article 1 - Freedom of Speech, Press, Religion and Petititon


Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


“No man can well doubt the propriety of placing a president of the United States under the most solemn obligations to preserve, protect, and defend the constitution.

66% of Voters Are Angry At The Media - Rasmussen Reports - Sixty-six percent (66%) of U.S. voters describe themselves as at least somewhat angry at the media, including 33% who are Very Angry. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 31% say they are not angry at the media, but that includes just nine percent (9%) who say they are not at all angry. It’s important to note, however, that the question did not in any way define media or differentiate between media outlets such as CNN and Fox News. But voters have consistently said in surveys that they believe the national media has a liberal bias and that most reporters try to help the candidates they want to win. …


Unhappiness with the media comes at a time when many government policies are unpopular with a majority of voters and two-thirds (67%) think the news media has too much influence over the actions of government. Sixty-two percent (62%) say what the media thinks is more important to the average member of Congress than what the voters think.

Christian Purge – The Obama factor (Part One) - by Sharon Sebastian - It’s afoot. The target: Christianity. Hijack, overthrow, or purge, the Obama government is making its move. True Christianity consists of people of biblical faith who are tolerant and giving while adhering to the Judeo-Christian teachings of Jesus Christ. …

Though over 75% of Americans profess to be Christian, Washington’s Liberal-Progressive leaders hold particular disdain for conservative Christian voters who steadfastly obey the biblical teachings of Jesus Christ. And, there’s the rub. True Christians always put faith before politics. To both circumvent or purge Christianity or ridicule Christians who question the left’s agenda, political instigators have three choices. The government can discredit the faith and its pastors, they can enact laws that prohibit specific Christian scripture, or they can, via Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky, infiltrate and falsely lay claim to the faith of Jesus Christ through the power of government by manipulating and counterfeiting it into something it is not, and still call it by its name – Christianity. All three strategies are currently in play. - Link to Website

Christian Purge – The Hitler Factor (Part Two) - by Sharon Sebastian - Mid-1800, the false scientific justification to deny God as Creator started with a man named Charles Darwin. Darwin’s theory of evolution divided humans into superior and inferior status. Darwin, in his own writings, labeled people of color, in particular black people, as sub-par and sub-human. The appeal of such a theory held great appeal to men who both denied the existence of God and sought superiority over fellow humans. Among them was Karl Marx, the father of Communism, who was so pleased with Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution that he sent him gifts, including a signed copy of Das Kapital in 1873 inscribed: “From a devoted admirer to Charles Darwin, Karl Marx.” Equally grateful to Darwin were mass murderers Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Hitler. All wrote of Darwin’s influence on them and their policies to oppress masses of people. (For more on Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Hitler’s views on evolution


Though Marxism seeks to rid society of God, Hitler allowed religions. Early in his political career, he praised Catholicism. Initially, he also was favorably inclined towards Christianity. In time as he garnered power, Hitler came to find Christianity particularly troublesome when Christian pastors spoke out against his systematic annihilation of Germany’s Jews. Hitler set out to wash the veneer of Christian beliefs from German society. He sought a new religion that would spring from the Nazi party with the pagan Swastika as its symbol to replace the Cross in Germany’s New World Order. In time, Hitler allowed comment that: “You can be German or you can be Christian, but you can’t be both.” Hitler declared. ...


Hitler created the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazis) and surrounded himself with men who were atheists or occultists who shared the desire to replace Christianity with a religion that did not require conscience. … - Link to Website

"People are tired of wasteful government programs and welfare chiselers, and they're angry about the constant spiral of taxes and government regulations, arrogant bureaucrats, and public officials who think all of mankind's problems can be solved by throwing the taxpayers' dollars at them."

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


"Think what you do when you run in debt; you give to another power over your liberty."

Why Are So Many Horrible Things Happening To America All Of A Sudden? - Once upon a time the United States was a land of abundance and prosperity that was truly blessed from sea to shining sea.  Tens of millions of Americans enjoyed living the American Dream in a land filled with happy, healthy and prosperous people.  But these days it seems as though there are new stories of tragedy and despair almost daily. Whether it is the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, or the horrific flooding in Tennessee, or the tornadoes ripping through the Midwest, or the gut-wrenching economic despair in cities like Detroit, it just seems like a whole lot of horrible things are happening to America all at once.  So why is all of this hitting the U.S. right now?  Why does it seem like there is just about nowhere in the United States right now that is untouched by a major crisis? …


So why is this happening?


Well, certainly there are a lot of reasons, but it certainly does not help that we have allowed the government to push God totally out of public life.  …As a society we have told God that we want nothing to do with Him. We have pushed and pushed and pushed Him into the shadows… - Link to Website

Florida’s Decade of Education Improvement Proves Reform Works - by Patrick R. Gobbons, Matthew Ladner - Nevada Policy Research Institute - Starting in 1999, Florida lawmakers passed a series of reforms - including real standards and accountability for public schools, parental choice options for students in failing schools, tuition scholarship programs, the termination of "social promotion," the institution of instructional reforms and the addition of merit pay to reward quality teachers.


The results over the last decade have been dramatic. In 1998, nearly half of Florida's fourth graders were scoring "below basic" on the NAEP reading test. By 2007, the state had dramatically increased reading  performance, and 70 percent of students scored basic or better on the reading test.


In less than a decade Florida's fourth-grade reading proficiency went from near the bottom of the 50 states to well above the national average…. - Link to Wesite


California Students Sent Home for Wearing U.S. Flags on Cinco de Mayo - (The public education systems can NOT BE REFORMED) by Joshua Rhett Miller - Administrators at a California high school sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas -- garments the school officials deemed "incendiary" on Cinco de Mayo. … The five students -- Daniel Galli, Austin Carvalho, Matt Dariano, Dominic Maciel and Clayton Howard -- were then told they must turn their T-shirts inside-out or be sent home, though it would not be considered a suspension. Rodriguez told the students he did not want any fights to break out between Mexican-American students celebrating their heritage and those wearing American flags. - Link to Website


What public educators can learn from Catholic schools - by Samuel G. Freedman -  Within the 242 pages of Diane Ravitch's lightning rod of a book, "The Death and Life of the Great American School System," there appear exactly three references to Catholic education. …her book offer evidence of how some public-education scholars and reformers have been learning from what Catholic education is doing right. What one might call the Catholic-school model is perhaps the most unappreciated influence on the nation's continuing public-education debate. …Her interest was initially piqued by the work of James S. Coleman, a sociologist of education and fellow apostate. Despite his roots in civil rights liberalism, Mr. Coleman began arguing in the 1970s and early 1980s that segregation alone could not explain the achievement gap between black and white students. His research into various types of high schools -- tens of thousands of students' records -- convinced him that the same kind of poor, inner-city black student performed markedly better in a Catholic school than in a public one. - Link to Website

"History affords us many instances of the ruin of states, by the prosecution of measures ill suited to the temper and genius of their people. The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy.

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

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves

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


“I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe. … Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government—from their carelessness and negligence—I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct.—that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant—give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy.”

Recent Virginia Church Service – Stimulus Sermon Gen 47:13-27 -  Thank you for that fine reading, Brother Ray... So we see that economic hard times fell upon Egypt, and the people turned to the government of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh nationalized the grain harvest, and placed the grain in great storehouses that he had built. So the people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a great tax increase, and gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And this went on until their money ran out, and they were hungry again. …


That turning to the government instead of to God to be our provider in hard times only leads to slavery? Yes. That the only reason government wants to be our provider is to also become our master?

“When a citizen gives his suffrage [vote] to a man of known immorality he abuses his trust; he sacrifices not only his own interest, but that of his neighbor, he betrays the interest of his country.”

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


"Good government generally begins in the family, and if the moral character of a people once degenerates, their political character must soon follow. A friendly consideration of our fellow-citizens, who by our free choice become the public servants, and manage the affairs of our common country, is but a reasonable return for their diligence and care in our service.


The most enlightened and zealous of our public servants can do little without the exertions of private citizens to perfect what they do but form as it were in embryo. The highest officers of our government are but the first servants of the people and always in their power: they have, therefore, a just claim to a fair and candid experiment of the plans they form and the laws they enact for the public weal. Too much should not be expected from them; they are but men and of like passions and of like infirmities with ourselves; they are liable to err, though exercising the purest motives and best abilities required for the purpose.


Times and circumstances may change and accidents intervene to disappoint the wisest measures. Mistaken and wicked men (who cannot live but in troubled waters) are often laboring with indefatigable zeal, which sometimes proves but too successful, to sour our minds and derange the best-formed systems. Plausible pretensions and censorious insinuations are always at hand to transfer the deadly poison of jealousy by which the best citizens may for a time be deceived.


 These considerations should lead to an attentive solicitude to keep the pure, unadulterated principles of our constitution always in view; to be religiously careful in our choice of public officers; and as they are again in oar power at very. short periods lend not too easily a patient ear to every invidious insinuation or improbable story, but prudently mark the effects of their public measures and judge of the tree by its fruits."

“If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. "Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few. "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree [& Nations] that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits.”

Not Yours To Give – (Congress) – David Crockett was his name. ... Crocket was later asked by a friend why he had opposed the appropriation, and he replied: "Several years ago I was one evening standing on the steps of the Capitol with some other members of Congress, when our attention was attracted by a great light over in Georgetown. It was evidently a large fire. We jumped into a hack and drove over as fast as we could. In spite of all that could be done, many houses were burned and many families made houseless, and, besides, some of them had lost all but the clothes they had on. The weather was very cold, and when I saw so many women and children suffering, I felt that something ought to be done for them. The next morning a bill was introduced appropriating $20,000 for their relief. We put aside all other business and rushed it through as soon as it could be done." …


Crocket explained, "The next summer, when it began to be time to think about election, I concluded I would take a scout around among the boys of my district. I had no opposition there, but, as the election was some time off, I did not know what might turn up. When riding one day in a part of my district in which I was more of a stranger than any other, I saw a man in a field plowing and coming toward the road. I gauged my gait so that we should meet as he came to the fence. As he came up, I spoke to the man. He replied politely, but, as I thought, rather coldly.


"I began: 'Well, friend, I am one of those unfortunate beings called candidates, and..."


His constituent interrupted, "Yes I know you; you are Colonel Crockett. I have seen you once before, and voted for you the last time you were elected. I suppose you are out electioneering now, but you had better not waste your time or mine, I shall not vote for you again."


Crockett replied, "This was a sockdolager ... I begged him to tell me what was the matter."


The farmer said, "Well, Colonel, it is hardly worth-while to waste time or words upon it. I do not see how it can be mended, but you gave a vote last winter which shows that either you have not capacity to understand the Constitution, or that you are wanting in the honesty and firmness to be guided by it. ...   -  Link to Website


Biblical plagues really happened say scientists - The Biblical plagues that devastated Ancient Egypt in the Old Testament were the result of global warming and a volcanic eruption, scientists have claimed. - Researchers believe they have found evidence of real natural disasters on which the ten plagues of Egypt, which led to Moses freeing the Israelites from slavery in the Book of Exodus in the Bible, were based. But rather than explaining them as the wrathful act of a vengeful God, the scientists claim the plagues can be attributed to a chain of natural phenomena triggered by changes in the climate and environmental disasters that happened hundreds of miles away. …


The problem with the naturalistic explanations, is that they lose the whole point. "And the whole point was that you didn't come out of Egypt by natural causes, you came out by the hand of God."  -  Link to Website

Health Care Law Signals US Empire Decline? – David Murrin Author of the book breaking the code of history – …To understand some of the bit changes we are going through,  I think sometimes long-term history impacts the now and we're in it like a schism, like two tectonic plates that suddenly shift after a hundred years of energy building up.  And that's really the end of the Western Christian empire. It's bigger than the British empire, the American empire. It's the sum of all the Christian empires for nearly 900 years. And America is the last one.


And when the last one changes and declines, which it's in, it will be very rapid, it's the end of the whole system. At the same time the system that rises challenges far quicker as it moves into the vacuum created by the old system, and that's the East. The surprise will be the rate of that change. And we view the new administration in America as new hope. Unfortunately, if you look at historical precedents of underclass and the mechanisms of an underclass actually coming to the fore demographically, it is not new hope, it's the beginning of the end. And we're seeing that very quickly take place. -  Link to Video

Health-care 'trickery' called overthrow of Constitution - 'This makes Watergate look like Romper Room' - America's system of government based on the U.S. Constitution is being overthrown through illegal legislative "trickery" Congress is using to pass controversial health-care reform.


That's the conclusion of some on the political right who are calling for the impeachment of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi along with the defeat of the health legislation. "This is the overthrow of the U.S. constitutional system, orchestrated from the White House through the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid," said radio host Rush Limbaugh today "This is beyond rational explanation and description. This makes Watergate look like Romper Room."

1. All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills.


2. Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the president of the United States; if he approve, he shall sign it, but if not, he shall return it, with his objections, to that house in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such reconsideration, two thirds of that house shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other house, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two-thirds of that house, it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both houses shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on the journal of each house respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the president within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.

Wyoming Governor Signs Sovereignty Resolution  - This week, Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal signed House Joint Resolution 2 (HJ0002), claiming “sovereignty on behalf of the State of Wyoming and for its citizens under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government or reserved to the people by the Constitution of the United States.”


Freudenthal, a long-time Democrat, was previously a US attorney for the Clinton administration, and is currently serving his 2nd term as Governor of Wyoming. He endorsed Barack Obama for president and is commonly referred to as one of the most popular governors in the country.


In a memorandum sent to the Wyoming legislature in late January, Freudenthal made clear his position that the federal government has gone beyond the limits of the constitution:


“For decades we have shared increased frustration dealing with the federal government and its agencies. What started out as a leak in the erosion of state prerogative and independence has today turned into a flood. From wolf and grizzly bear management, to gun control, to endless regulation and unfunded mandates – the federal government has become far too powerful and intrusive.”…


Wyoming joins 10 other states that have passed similar resolutions since last year; Alaska, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Tennessee passed theirs in 2009, and Utah, Alabama, and South Carolina have joined Wyoming in passing resolutions this year. These resolutions are part of a growing grassroots movement in state legislatures across the country as a protest to the intrusion of the federal government into state government affairs, and is an essential first step towards efforts to push back, or nullify, unconstitutional federal laws and regulations. -  Link to Website

TEACHERS WERE WARNED - By Lynn Stuter - There has been a growing controversy — in Rhode Island and across the nation — about the firing of the teachers at Central Falls Highs School. Teachers are in an uproar, the union is "outraged," the parents are "outraged," the students are surely "going to be traumatized"  …Systems education, what was implemented in every school nation-wide under Goals 2000, is a system intended specifically to coalesce the sustainable global environment agenda. …In other documents, it is made very clear that America is to become a "service economy." With manufacturing jobs being outsourced to foreign countries left and right, the majority of the jobs remaining would be in the service sector, such as cleaning toilets, scrubbing floors, changing beds, washing laundry, flipping burgers, repairing cars, stocking shelves, running a cash register, repairing appliances and equipment.


Under such a system, innovation is not an imperative, nor is the goal of education, in public schools, to discipline the mind of the child such that the child has a vast knowledge base on which to draw in articulating a reasoned conclusion as an individual (classical education). Under systems education, it is no longer important that children be able to think and reason; only that they respond appropriately to the given behaviorally oriented prompt or trigger—the Skinnerian operant conditioning technique of punishment and reward used to train animals. …


Teachers were warned but they were so enamored with systems education holding children accountable for the demonstration of the wanted subjective behaviors that they refused to listen. So, is it really anyone's fault but their own when children fail to demonstrate the wanted behaviors? Is it anyone's fault but their own that they jumped on the education transformation (a.k.a., systems education) band-wagon when they had no clue what it was really all about beyond what they were told to believe, and did believe?


When people ask me about sending their children to public (i.e., government) schools, I tell them two things,

1. do not put your child in harm's way; no child is capable of withstanding the brainwashing going on in government schools under systems education; either home school your child or put your child in a private school that does not accept public money;


2. get involved because all really does mean all, and the government fully intends that all children be subjected to systems education; thus the advent of charter schools and public schools in homes (like K-12™) to suck parents into the system.


Systems education has cost the taxpayers billions (if not trillions) of dollars to implement and sustain. In the top-heavy school administrations, full of counselors, psychologists, play-ground monitors, and aides, all seeking to pry into the minds of children, billions more are being wasted. …States are now in financial trouble. When Washington State legislators were asked what they intended to do when systems education became a financial burden on the taxpayers, as it was bound to do, not one legislator had an answer. And not one of them, beyond the Republican Senator who was castigated by his own party for letting the truth be told, has had the courage to do anything to avoid the inevitable.


Parents who tried to tell teachers, administrators and legislators certainly have the right to say "we told you so" but that does not change the bottom-line fact that children are paying the ultimate price, as is our nation and our society as a whole, for the failure to properly educate children for intelligence. -  Link to Website

Teacher wins major victory for God in school - Judge scolds district for trying to scrub America's Christian heritage – A federal judge in California has handed down a scathing ruling against a school that required one of its teachers to remove signs celebrating the role of God in American history from his classroom walls. As WND reported, math teacher Bradley Johnson had banners hanging in his classroom at Westview High School in San Diego, Calif., for more than 17 years with phrases like "In God We Trust" and "All Men Are Created Equal, They Are Endowed by Their Creator," only to have the principal order them torn down during the 2007 school year. But Johnson filed a lawsuit alleging the order a violation of his constitutional rights, and the teacher has now been rewarded with a court victory and a powerfully-worded ruling.


"May a school district censor a high school teacher's expression because it refers to Judeo-Christian views, while allowing other teachers to express views on a number of controversial subjects, including religion and anti-religion?" posited U.S. District Court Judge Roger T. Benitez in his judgement. "On undisputed evidence, this court holds that it may not."…


"Many school officials exhibit hostility towards our nation's Christian heritage. Yet, these same officials see no problem in actively promoting atheism or other religions under the guise of cultural diversity and tolerance," said Thompson, whose firm filed the lawsuit on Johnson's behalf. "Hopefully, Judge Benitez's decision will help put an end to this double standard. It is the responsibility of our public schools to educate students on the crucial role Christianity played in our nation's founding."


The charge of a double standard was not lost on Judge Benitez. "Fostering diversity," Benitez ruled, "does not mean bleaching out historical religious expression or mainstream morality. By squelching only Johnson's patriotic and religious classroom banners, while permitting other diverse religious and anti-religious classroom displays, the school district does a disservice to the students of Westview High School, and the federal and state constitutions do not permit this one-sided censorship." -  Link to Website  


"Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ; cursed be all that learning that is not coincident with the cross of Christ; cursed be all that learning that is not subservient to the cross of Christ.”

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


Government, Yes! God and Parents, No! – by Dennis Prager - One of the major differences between the right and the left concerns the question of authority: To whom do we owe obedience and who is the ultimate moral authority? For the right, the primary moral authority is God (or, for secular conservatives, Judeo-Christian values), followed by parents. Of course, government must also play a role, but it is ultimately accountable to God and it should do nothing to undermine parental authority.


For the left, the state and its government are the supreme authorities, while parental and divine authority are seen as impediments to state authority. …


That is why the further left a government or an ideology, the more it has opposed religion. The first targets of Lenin and Stalin were churches, synagogues and clergy. At the modern Western university, the epicenter of leftist ideology, the same has held true. A clear, if unstated, goal of modern liberal arts education is that as few college graduates as possible hold values rooted in traditional Judaism or Christianity.  -  Link to Website


God has a Plan & Now America & the World are in Trouble – by Bill Haymin - … As we have entered this new decade and year, things have obviously and dramatically changed (if we have been paying attention.) We are witnessing what the Scriptures have said about the "Last Days." The changes have been so swift; that most of us are unable to catch up to what has been happening and assimilate them. We are unable to process those changes and to assimilate and use the prophetic warnings that the Scriptures have said would take place in our day because it´s happening so fast. Just as surely as the Scriptures say there will come a time for all men to die, God also fulfills His word about the end times that no living person or spirit being can change. This brings to mind the valiant efforts of many American patriots in trying to stem the tide of those working feverously to rebuild the world into their beastly image. Revelation 13


Many of us are trying to stop the ominous changes that are happening, by thinking that if we can just get this candidate or that candidate into political office, we can turn America around. There have been many Tea Party groups and political meetings around the country discussing how to do this. Now don´t misunderstand what I´m about to say: It is always in the best interests of the people to keep a diligent and critical eye on those whom we elect to represent "we" the people. It is still our calling as citizens of a once Republic, to stand up for righteousness and try to keep what freedoms we have left. But, in an era long since gone, there was a time that we could have stopped the narrow stream of political, moral and spiritual decay and corruption that our fathers saw coming down like a raging river into our day.


We must realize and come to grips with the reality that we have entered the time of "Jacob´s trouble" that the Scriptures have said would come to pass. We have entered, and are now living in a different day and we can´t continue to rely on men and the institutions that once held secure our freedoms. We cannot do the things that we have taken for granted, because all those things are in the process of being radically transformed right before our very eyes. Our way of life is being allowed by heaven to be taken away. …"God doesn´t have coincidence, God has plans, and when you can figure out what the plan is, all of a sudden you go, oh that´s not a coincidence, that´s part of the plan. That´s what God has shown me so that I can believe Him and trust Him so that when He quickly brings it to pass I´ll be prepared, I´ll be a part of what it is. …. -  Link to Website

Alpine School District Endorses “Christ was a Vampire” Author - (The public education systems can NOT BE REFORMED) I am a parent of 4 children in Alpine School District (ASD) in Utah and I just found out some alarming things that our district is promoting. Please take the time to read this as we need to come together as a community to fix a monumental problem which has crept into our local district. …


Many are aware that our country’s leaders are trying to transform this nation into democratic socialism. You already know that one of their main techniques is to indoctrinate school children around the nation into gradually believing Progressive ideology and move away from our great Constitutional heritage. I moved here in the heart of a conservative city and state from California hoping for a better education and environment for my children. However, I was shocked to find out recently that our own Alpine School District has been aligning itself with people who believe that we are NOT a great God-inspired Republic. They are teaching that our Founding Fathers were wrong in establishing a Republic, that the Constitution was set up by wealthy elitists who only wanted gain for themselves and that we should transform our Republic nation into a social and political Democracy by teaching this false doctrine to our children. They even went as far as linking their Mission Statement page with a California Green Party candidate who believes Jesus is a vampire. ...


Last week my daughter’s 6th grade history teacher was falsely teaching the class that the United States of America is not a Constitutional Republic but a Democracy even when my daughter corrected him twice. One of his main jobs at the school is to teach the Constitution to all 5th and 6th grade students. He also told her that a book she was reading made up of quotes from our Founding Fathers about the Constitution was “pure science fiction”. Because she was not being challenged in any of her subjects and learning false ideas about our country, we decided to check her out of Alpine School District.  As we walked into the district office, my daughter and I were shocked to be greeted by a huge sign spanning about 30 feet down the hallway in 12 inch high letters that said: “Enculturating the Young into a Social and Political Democracy”  


I immediately wondered why the school district’s motto wasn’t “We Strive for Excellence in Education” or something similar. Nothing about education, only politics. I don’t want the schools teaching my children about politics or enculturating them into any other belief system other than what we teach at home. Enculturating is a brand new word invented by Progressives which means changing someone’s core belief system. -  Link to Website

“To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys. In proportion as the genuine effects of Christianity are diminished in any nation, either through unbelief, or the corruption of its doctrines, or the neglect of its institutions; in the same proportion will the people of that nation recede from the blessings of genuine freedom, and approximate the miseries of complete despotism. All efforts to destroy the foundations of our holy religion, ultimately tend to the subversion also of our political freedom and happiness.. Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all the blessings which flow from them, must fall with them.”

— Rev. Jedediah Morse (1761-1826) Author, minister and teacher


“Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our people in a greater measure than they have it now, They may change their rulers and the forms of government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty. They will only exchange tyrants and tyrannies.”

Congressional Performance - 71% Give Congress Poor Rating - Rasmussen Reports - Nearly half of Democratic voters (48%) now give Congress a poor rating, up 17 points since January.

Part of the frustration is likely due to the belief of 60% of voters that neither Republican political leaders nor Democratic political leaders have a good understanding of what is needed today. …The plurality of voters (42%) continues to believe most members of Congress are corrupt, a result that has remained fairly consistent over the past several months. ...

Were all of America's Founding Fathers racists, pro-slavery, and hypocrites? - One of the most frequent tactics employed to discredit America's Founding Fathers is to say that the Founding Fathers were all pro-slavery racists and hypocrites. Therefore, why should we care what their views were on any subject? African-American professor Walter Williams wisely explained the use of this tactic in these words:


“Politicians, news media, college professors and leftists of other stripes are selling us lies and propaganda. To lay the groundwork for their increasingly successful attack on our Constitution, they must demean and criticize its authors. As Senator Joe Biden demonstrated during the Clarence Thomas hearings, the framers' ideas about natural law must be trivialized or they must be seen as racists.”


These people paint a false picture of the Founding Fathers and the issue of slavery. The historical fact is that slavery was not the product of, nor was it an evil introduced by the Founders; slavery was introduced in America nearly two centuries before the Founders. … -  Link to Website

Marriage Penalty in the U.S. House and Senate Health Care Bills – (Congress works to destroy the institution of marriage through excessive taxes) - “The House and Senate Health Care bills contain a huge marriage penalty for the American middle class.” Allen Quist said today.

 “There is a huge middle class marriage penalty hidden in the House and Senate health care bills. The penalty becomes evident by evaluating questions like the following: How much would two single people, each making $30,000 per year, pay for private health insurance if the Pelosi bill was in effect now? The answer is $1,320 per year for both individuals combined (based on the premium limits and subsidies outlined on the charts below). But how much would they pay for the same level of insurance under the Pelosi bill if they were to marry? Their combined cost would then be about $12,000 a year (the estimated cost for private insurance).


“The Senate bill stipulates that two unmarried people, 52 years of age, with private insurance and a combined income of $60,000, $30,000 each, will pay a combined cost of $2,483 for medical insurance. Should they marry, however, they will pay a combined cost of $11,666 for insurance—a penalty of $9,183 for getting married.  -  Link to Website  -  Link to Website

German homeschoolers' political asylum in America exposes the EU Gulag – The case of the homeschooling couple from Germany who were granted political asylum in the United States, ...becomes even more interesting if one reads the remarks of the man who granted the Romeikes asylum, Immigration Judge Lawrence O. Burman, of Memphis, Tennessee.


Burman said: “We can’t expect every country to follow our constitution. The world might be a better place if it did. However, the rights being violated here are basic human rights that no country has a right to violate.” He observed: “Homeschoolers are a particular social group that the German government is trying to suppress. This family has a well-founded fear of persecution… therefore, they are eligible for asylum…” … Those last remarks might have been uttered in 1933. Do we truly realise the significance of what has happened? Do we understand that, as citizens of the European Union, we now belong to a totalitarian state from which fleeing citizens are being granted political asylum in the United States? Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, tyranny is back in business in Germany.


Judge Burman added that the scariest thing about this case was the motivation of the German government. He said that, rather than being concerned with the welfare of the children, it was trying to stamp out parallel societies. Making his court order, the judge voiced concern that, although Germany was a democratic country and an ally, the policy of persecuting homeschoolers was “repellent to everything we believe as Americans”.


That offers a useful insight into how Americans, living in a free country, view the creeping totalitarianism that has engulfed Europe. ... -  Link to Website


Biblically Correct Versus Politically Correct: A Perspective - Respected pastor and author Charles Stanley once said, “We have no obligation before God to be politically correct.  Rather, we have a divine obligation to be Biblically correct -- because if we’re Biblically correct, people’s lives will change and we’ll positively impact society.”


This is a hard-hitting statement, especially in a postmodern culture that tends to tiptoe around difficult issues in the name of being “PC” and not “offending” anyone of a different persuasion.  Christians often find themselves in this quandary — many of us have experienced similar situations, whether feeling uncomfortably silent at a dinner party where friends or co-workers railed against the “intolerance” of people of faith, or experiencing waves of nausea when even fellow “Christians” deny the existence of absolute truth and preach that all religions or doctrines are valid in the eyes of a vague God.


The dilemma of choosing between political correctness and Biblical correctness is nothing new under the sun.  In fact, numerous historical examples exist in the pages of the very book that unapologetically contradicts political correctness — the Bible.  One such example, 2 Chronicles 14, is a fascinating account of part of the life of King Asa of Judah. -  Link to Website

The State of the Nation: I am afraid:  By John W. Whitehead - Ominous developments in America have been a long time coming, in part precipitated by "we the people"--a citizenry that has been asleep at the wheel for too long. And while there have been wake-up calls, we have failed to heed the warnings.


Just consider the state of our nation: We're encased in what some are calling an electronic concentration camp. The government continues to amass data files on more and more Americans. Everywhere we go, we are watched: at the banks, at the grocery store, at the mall, crossing the street. This loss of privacy is symptomatic of the growing surveillance being carried out on average Americans. Such surveillance gradually poisons the soul of a nation, transforming us from one in which we're presumed innocent until proven guilty to one in which everyone is a suspect and presumed guilty. Thus, the question that must be asked is: can freedom in the United States flourish in an age when the physical movements, individual purchases, conversations and meetings of every citizen are under constant surveillance by private companies and government agencies?


We are metamorphosing into a police state. Governmental tentacles now invade virtually every facet of our lives, with agents of the government listening in on our telephone calls and reading our emails. … We are plagued by a faltering economy and a monstrous financial deficit that threatens to bankrupt us. Our national debt is more than $12 trillion (which translates to more than $110,000 per taxpayer), and is expected to nearly double to $20 trillion by 2015. The unemployment rate is over 10% and growing, …


Our representatives in the White House and Congress bear little resemblance to those they have been elected to represent. Many of our politicians live like kings. Chauffeured around in limousines, flying in private jets and eating gourmet meals, all paid for by the American taxpayer, they are far removed from those they represent. What's more, they continue to spend money we don't have on pork-laden stimulus packages while running up a huge deficit and leaving the American taxpayers to foot the bill…


The corporate media, increasingly acting as a mouthpiece for governmental propaganda, no longer serves a primary function as watchdogs, guarding against encroachments of our rights. Instead, much of the mainstream media has given itself over to mindless, celebrity-driven news, which bodes ill for our country. …Americans have largely lost the ability to ask questions and think analytically. Indeed, most citizens have little, if any, knowledge about their rights or how their government even works. For example, a national poll found that less than one percent of adults could name the five freedoms protected in the First Amendment. ... - Link to Website


Thirty-Seven Years After Roe v. Wade, a Disenfranchised ‘Silent Generation’ - An entire generation of Democrat voters failed to vote in Massachusetts Tuesday night. The same generation of Democrat voters failed to thwart recent GOP victories in New Jersey and Virginia. But no one’s reporting on them. They’re the silent generation.


The Silent Generation is between the favored ages of 18 and 37 years old. There are over 49 million of them, and they make up approximately 15% of the American population, certainly enough to swing any election in any state in any race. Problem is this: they have been denied the right to vote in these elections. That’s because, thanks to Roe v. Wade, which was decieded 37 years ago today, they’re not even here.


Ironically, the ACLU does not concern itself with them. They are never interviewed and are rarely mentioned by Democrat candidates. No one knows for sure how many of them are Democrats or Republicans or independents for that matter because they are invisible and unregistered. They are those Americans, those voters, who have been aborted since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalized their demise.  They cannot vote because they were denied lives as American citizens. - Link to Website

Scott Brown: the tea party’s first electoral victory - Scott Brown’s win in the Massachusetts special senate election could realign the Republican Party around clean government, fiscal discipline, and respect for the Constitution….His very persona suggests he has what it takes to stand up to the corruption of political practices and take on the Democrat establishment. Proud of driving a truck, Brown is the nemesis of elitists and openly offers himself as a lightning rod for a national referendum on the Democrat’s filibuster-proof majority in the US Senate.


With a single stone, this David intends to take down Goliath and kill the unpopular healthcare bill. But he’s not content to join a party of “No,” either. He voted for bold healthcare reform in Massachusetts, and he’s said he wants to start fresh on a new reform bill in Washington – one that’s undertaken with transparency and bipartisan input.  - Link to Website

Tea Party Activists Gaining Steam Across the Country - From Florida to California, Conservatives Are Challenging Moderate Republicans. So-called "tea party patriots" are members of a political movement sweeping America whose core beliefs center around fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets. …"I think Republicans definitely dismiss this at their peril. I also think Democrats, by trying to marginalize it, underestimate the anger out there," political analyst Matthew Dowd said. …


"The tea party aligned with what I was already feeling with three core values, which are fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets," Whigham said. The nationwide movement has no identifiable leader, but there is plenty of star power. Conservative television news talk show host Glenn Beck has given a face to the movement. And former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is confirmed to speak at two upcoming tea party conferences in Nashville and San Antonio. Because they have growing influence, moderates are scrambling to show their support. Rob Simmons, a former Connecticut congressman who is running for Senate, recently added a tea bag to the copy of the U.S. Constitution he always carries in his pocket. Think of it as armor, proof of his solidarity with the tea party. -  Link to Website


North Magnetic Pole Moving Due to Core Flux - North Magnetic Pole Is Shifting Rapidly Toward Russia at almost 40 miles (64 kilometers) a year due to magnetic changes in the planet's core, new research says. …The magnetic north pole had moved little from the time scientists first located it in 1831. Then in 1904, the pole began shifting northeastward at a steady pace of about 9 miles (15 kilometers) a year. In 1989 it sped up again, and in 2007 scientists confirmed that the pole is now galloping toward Siberia at 34 to 37 miles (55 to 60 kilometers) a year.  -  Link to Website


The True Purpose of Tongues -  Q: What is the true purpose of tongues? A: There are two primary purposes for speaking in tongues. One is to edify the individual believer who exercises the gift of tongues in private devotional time with God. The other is to combat racial and cultural prejudices among different people groups and thus promote Christian unity amongst diverse peoples. I believe this purpose is clearly depicted in the book of Acts.


In Acts 1:8, Jesus commanded his followers to take the gospel to “the ends of the earth.” These first followers were all Jews who didn’t believe non-Jews could become Christians without undergoing Mosaic rites such as circumcision. Unless this conviction was discarded, the gospel could not penetrate the non-Jewish world. When Jesus poured out the Holy Spirit upon Gentiles at Caesarea, tongues accompanied the outpouring just as it did at Pentecost. These tongues were for the sake of the Jewish Christians who didn’t believe Gentiles were eligible to be received into the Church without submitting to Jewish rites. …


The Jewish leaders of the early church accepted Samaritans, Gentiles, and the polyglot society of Ephesus into the church because they heard them speak in tongues just like the one hundred twenty at Pentecost. Tongues were God’s sign that He would not tolerate racism in His family.


History demonstrated this in the 1906 revival at Los Angeles’ Azusa Street. It was no accident that God chose a half-blind African-American pastor to lead the revival. Racism was still rampant in America less than fifty years after the Civil War. When the revival at Azusa Street was launched, powerful demonstrations of God’s presence drew people from all races and walks of life. They worshipped together; they cried together; they laughed together; they were one in Spirit together.


For a short time there was genuine evidence of the equality of people groups within the Christian community. This is the purpose of tongues — to unite the church of Christ. What a shame it is that our erroneous doctrine today has made them a divisive force within the church. -  Link to Website


Idaho GOP gubernatorial candidate Rammell expands on controversial prophecy in YouTube video - Idaho GOP gubernatorial candidate Rex Rammell says saving the U.S. Constitution requires God's help. Rammell's thoughts are captured in a nine-minute excerpt from a recent news conference now available on YouTube.  


"America would not exist if it wasn't for the divine hand of providence in not only intervening to win the Revolutionary War but in writing the inspired words of the Constitution," Rammell says in the video. "To think that we can save the Constitution without God's help when the government of the United States is corrupt is absurdity."


Adds Rammell: "We are in America's second Revolutionary War to save our freedom, which we paid for with blood. We need God's help and I'm not ashamed to ask for it." Rammell says he has invited about 100 Mormon men to a Jan. 19 meeting in Idaho Falls to discuss the "White Horse Prophecy," which some attribute to Mormon Church founder Joseph Smith. The prophecy, which is not embraced by top Latter-day Saints Church officials, holds that the Constitution "will hang ... by a single thread"…  -  Link to Wesite

High-Ranking Soviet Defector Endorses Ohio Congressional Candidate Paul Schiffer, Warns of Socialism of Democrats - The highest-ranking Soviet and Eastern Bloc Intelligence Official ever to defect to America (in 1978) -- who went on to help Ronald Reagan win the Cold War -- has endorsed Paul Schiffer, Republican candidate for Congress in Ohio's 16th Congressional District. Pacepa escaped Romania to become an American citizen.


Lt. General Ion Mihai Pacepa's statement follows: "Thirty-one years ago I paid with two-death sentences--from Communist Romania--for my desire to break with Marxism and become a citizen of the greatest country on earth. All former Soviet satellites have now 'defected' from Marx's socialism, which had transformed a third of the world into an abysmal 20th century feudalism. Great Britain, Italy, Germany, France and Greece have also abandoned their ruinous experiments with Marx's socialism.


"Alas, now the virus of Marxism with its fatal governmental takeovers has started infecting our shores. If the Democratic Party has its way, it will transform the United States into a socialist country in all but name. The 2010 elections could prevent that catastrophe from happening."  -  Link to Website


“What actually happens now, that unlike myself, you have literally several years to live on unless the United States wakes up. The time bomb it ticking. With every second the disaster is coming closer and closer. Unlike myself, you will have is nowhere to defect to, unless you want to live in untenable options. This is the last country of freedom and possibility. …there must be a national effort to educate people in the spirit of real patriotism number one. And number two, explain to them the real danger of socialist communist state welfare state, big brother government. If people will fail to grasp the impending danger of that development, nothing ever can help the United States. You may kiss goodbye to your freedoms … all this freedom will evaporate in five seconds including your precious lives.”

“Until I came to the West myself and spent two years looking around, I could never have imagined to what an extreme degree the West had actually become a world without a will, a world gradually petrifying in the face of the danger confronting it. ... All of us are standing on the brink of a great historical cataclysm, a flood that swallows up civilization and changes whole epochs.”

— Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) Russian novelist & historian who documented the horrors of the Gulags, 1970 Nobel Prize winner for Literature


Texas teachers warned against being 'heterosexist' - 'We must help people to become committed to social change'- Candidates for certification to teach in public schools in Texas are being told that they will be held accountable for any "heterosexist" leanings and must become agents working to change society, according to one candidate who was alarmed by the demands. The applicant, who requested anonymity for fear of repercussions, told WND part of the teachings on multiculturalism required him to read several online postings about the issue inside the education industry.


One warns that "teachers and administrators must be held accountable for practices deemed to be racist, sexist, heterosexist, classist, or in any other way discriminatory." And a second warned that educators must not define education as the basic skills. "How do we create a better world? How do we do more than simply survive? As educators, we must help people to become committed to social change," the article demanded.


.... Anyone familiar with the re-education camps of China's Cultural Revolution will recognize the modus operandi. "What if some aspiring teachers resist this effort at thought control and object to parroting back an ideological line as a condition of future employment?" she posed. "The task group has Orwellian plans for such rebels: The U, it says, must 'develop clear steps and procedures for working with nonperforming students, including a remediation plan.'"  -  Link to Website


“I marveled a bit at the feat [Lubianka re-education]. I also began to understand more clearly what was meant by rewriting history for the proletariat and how it could be arranged that young people would hear nothing whatsoever of God.”
