Liar, Liar--Pants on Fire!!

This is my last postin on has been great and so easy to use, but I've MOVED on to and taken on a new blog title:

The Brainwashed Pilgrim
You can help me move in by going to my latest post at:

This just in: 
President Barack Obama has been awarded the dubious honor of "LIE of the YEAR" with a rating of "Pants on Fire" by the Politifact-fact-checking website.
Just to refresh your memory--Our president looked straight into the camera and on numerous occasions and said:
  • Obamacare would bring down premiums by $2500 for the typical family (find me an example of where that is currently taking place. In most instances, it is doubling and tripling premiums of most families).
  • President’s weekly address, June 6, 2009: "If you like the plan you have, you can keep it.  If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too.  The only change you’ll see are falling costs as our reforms take hold." Tell that to the millions who are receiving cancellation notices from their health insurers because Obamacare has forced the health insurance company to dump them. These millions of insured were happy with their coverage, but are NOW being told by Obama that their coverage is sub-standard, sub-par. According to the new federal guidelines for coverage, most insurance plans don't meet the government definition which includes forcing 50-yr old men to have coverage for mammogram screening and birth control.
  • Town hall in Green Bay, Wis., June 11, 2009: "No matter how we reform health care, I intend to keep this promise:  If you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor; if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan." (How can you keep your doctor when he's not in your exchange and he's not on the short list of accepted doctors? How can you keep your doctor when he's losing his medical practice due to Obamacare?)
  • Presidential press conference, June 23, 2009. "If you like your plan and you like your doctor, you won't have to do a thing. You keep your plan. You keep your doctor."
  • Town hall in Grand Junction, Colo., Aug. 15, 2009: "I just want to be completely clear about this. I keep on saying this but somehow folks aren't listening — if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan.  Nobody is going to force you to leave your health care plan.  If you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor." (Notice how Obama typically attacks his critics by saying "but somehow folks aren't listening." It's now obvious that his critics were RIGHT.
  • First presidential debate in Denver, Oct. 3, 2012: "If you've got health insurance, it doesn't mean a government takeover. You keep your own insurance. You keep your own doctor. But it does say insurance companies can't jerk you around." (It's not the health insurance companies "jerking us around" that we're worried about. It's Obama who's jerking us around!!)

In one of the opening chapters of Dostoevsky's "The Brothers Karamazov", a revered monk tells Karamazov, "A man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point where he does not discern any truth either in himself or anywhere around him, and thus falls into disrespect towards himself and others."

This certainly describes our president and his administration. Since they hold their intellect in high esteem, they cannot blame their willful denial of reality on ignorance. Therefore they must be lying to themselves

How well does Sheldon Cooper's IQ stack up to Almighty God?

There are times when one needs to take a break from all the politics and foolish behavior that abounds in Washington D.C. as well as the evident decay of our culture.

It's always around this time of the year that hear about the "war on Christmas" and while there is some truth to that, the fact is that there is a war on God. We are a rebellious people who are constantly shaking our fists at God. In many ways, we scream out, "You're not fair! You're not just! You're not doing your job! You've let us down!" Maybe that's why so many in our nation have abandoned the Living God for gods of their own making, including their own political ideology.

No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, or where you find yourself in relation to Almighty God, even if you don't believe in His existence--He is still on his throne. He is a debtor to no one. We can NEVER do enough that God would owe us anything. We cannot establish a claim on God's love, mercy, grace or forgiveness based on our birth or our beauty or our brains or behavior.

Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory) may have one of the highest IQs known to man, but that doesn't make God a debtor to Sheldon in any way whatsoever. Sheldon's wisdom and knowledge about the universe is so infinitesimally minuscule when compared with God's wisdom, power and strength.
God is always ready to surprise us with new things. He is always at work behind the scenes performing his will and good pleasure. In other words, when you don't think God is there, or don't think He's doing anything, He is still at work, and in time, you will see the evidence of what He is doing at this very moment.
He never drops the ball. He never screws up. He never says "Oops!" He is never caught off-guard or caught by surprise.

Everything you and I have comes from Him. Everything that exists--all of creation is His handiwork. 

So this Christmas, take time to reflect on the wonder, majesty, strength and wisdom of Almighty God. To God Be the Glory. Great things He has done!

As Job 36:22-24 (NLT) 
22  “Look, God is all-powerful. Who is a teacher like him? 23  No one can tell him what to do, or say to him, ‘You have done wrong.’24  Instead, glorify his mighty works, singing songs of praise.
Romans 11:36 (NLT)
36  For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.

The Rx that's needed in the black community

Comedian, Bill Cosby
The "Knockout Game" is symptomatic of an even greater issue in the U.S today.  The Black community needs to "man up" and start addressing its own problems. For far too long, blacks have used whites as their scapegoats, choosing to point the finger at 'white racism' or 'racist cops' or a racial imbalance in the prisons and jails. There's a racial imbalance with many more blacks in prison and jails because they're the ones who are committing most of the crimes!

As Bill Cosby has said,
"It's NOT what the white man is doing to us, it's what we're doing to ourselves! Five or six different children, same woman, eight, ten different husbands or whatever, pretty soon you're going to have to have DNA cards so you can tell who you're making love to. You don't know who this is. It might be your grandmother. (Laughter) I'm telling you, they're young enough. Hey, you have a baby when you're twelve. Your baby turns thirteen and has a baby, how old are you? Huh? Grandmother. By the time you're twelve, you could have sex with your grandmother, you keep those numbers coming. I'm just predicting.”
When I look at the black community, I ask myself, where is the church, especially the black church? What
are you doing? Why aren't you speaking out? Why haven't we heard any 'black leaders' speaking out condemning 'the knockout game'? And again, I believe the fact that the black community has to rely on so-called, self-appointed 'black leaders' is itself part of their problem. They don't need any leaders. Each of them needs to start taking responsibility for what is going on in their own households, in their own community, in their schools.

As Bill Cosby has already stated, they've got the wrong priorities and the wrong values. Instead of buying their kid a $200. pair of basketball speakers, they need to be investing in Hooked on Phonics so their kid can read and speak English.

Many in the black community profess a strong faith in Christ but sadly, their faith never seems to make it out of the church sanctuary and into their homes, community, or at the ballot box. Black Christians don't vote for righteousness, they vote on the basis of skin color. Why else would 96% blacks have voted for Obama?

It's time for blacks to stop playing the "race card" and the "victim card" and take responsibility for their own failures as a people. They need stop allowing liberal educators in their schools brainwash them with a "victim mentality". Instead of attacking Bill Cosby and vilifying the messenger, you need to listen to the message that is coming from one who knows you and is speaking the truth.

Instead of marching for justice, or for more food stamps, try marching to the public schools and declaring you're not going to stand for a 60% drop-out rate any longer. You're not going to put up with the fact that you son or daughter can't read or write or even speak English. Start taking back your schools and your community from black gangs and thugs who happen to be your sons and daughters. Start parenting your own children instead of relying on the schools or television to do it.

Instead of marching to end racial profiling, black parents need to spend
more time at home teaching their kids some moral values so the police
don't have to stop and 'frisk' them. 
Society at large needs to take serious action against those who perpetrate violence of any kind, especially in the form of the "knockout game" which is no game, but deadly attacks on innocent people. Punching out some elderly person's lights isn't wrong because its illegal, it's illegal because its WRONG! If we as a society feel no moral revulsion at gangs of black youths pulverizing fellow citizens, then we as a society have lost our moral bearings. As Chuck Colson pronounced 20 yrs ago, we have become the "new barbarians"!

My final thought is that we need to pray for our nation, pray for the black community. We need to pray that the black community will look in the mirror and start taking responsibility for what is going on right under their nose and no longer looking for someone else to blame.

It's time to for blacks to take their faith in God and His
righteousness outside the church sanctuary and into
their homes, community as well as the ballot box. 
At the same time, we all need to look in the mirror and ask ourselves "to what extent am I part of the problem?" What am I doing to turn the tide, or am I just going along to get along? Do I ever speak out? Do I ever correct someone for wrong thinking which comes from believing a lie? Maybe I should be looking for a black child or teen to mentor or tutor, teaching him or her how to read and write. Maybe our churches need to be supporting the Big Brothers and Big Sisters' program. Instead of soup kitchens, we might better spend our time mentoring a young black child and giving him some values and purpose for his life.

We need to stop the political correctness which is de-humanizing us because it provides cover for these hoodlums and their acts of violence. We are so afraid of being called-out as "racists" that we've allowed ourselves to be silenced. Maybe we need to pray for boldness to stand up to the lies of political-correctness and to speak the truth in love to those around us. I'm sure that as you and I pray, God will speak and show us what He'd have us to do and how to do it.

It may be racist & deadly, but it's ONLY a game!

They call it the “Knockout Game” also known as "polar bear hunting"  but it's not a game—It’s an all-out racial assault on whites by young black thugs. You haven’t read much about it because the media is doing its best to ignore these unprovoked physical attacks. These “hate crimes” don’t fit their media template. It’s supposed to be whites attacking blacks, not whites as victims.

According to the mainstream media’s thinking, it’s only a hate crime if the victim is either black or gay. It can’t be a hate crime if the victims are a 30-yr old white couple. Ronald and Alan Russo, 30, were assaulted by 10 black youths after they honked their horn to signal the group to move so they could proceed through a green light.

Brooklyn intersection where the Russos were attacked
The New York Daily News reported that after Ronald honked his horn the upset youths began kicking his car. When Russo got out to examine the damage, he was thrown to the ground, punched and kicked throughout his body — including his head. He suffered numerous injuries, including a blood clot, abrasions to his shoulder, a fractured nose and a broken septum,

His wife, Alana, was also ripped from the car while she attempted to dial 911. Her head was slammed on the concrete and she suffered a black eye, bleeding and had difficulty breathing, prosecutors said, according to the New York Daily News.
“They struck the victims multiple times — heads, body, legs,” Grimpel said. “The female they struck her in the face. Also took an iPhone.”

During the attack, racial insults were hurled at the couple.
“Get those crackers!” some of the youths shouted, court papers reportedly said, “Get that white whore!”
“White motherf----r!” others reportedly shouted.

Australian student, Chris Lane, shot in the back while jogging.
The “Knockout Game” is also being played in the heartland of America. Last summer, three black teens were charged in the killing of an Australian university student in Duncan, Oklahoma “for the fun of it.”

Christopher Lane, of Melbourne, Australia, was shot in the back while jogging on the side of the road. The three black youths followed him in their car, shot him in the back and drove off.When asked why they did it, one of them said, “We were bored and decided to kill somebody for the fun of it.”

Chris Lane was here on a baseball scholarship. He was described by friends as a smart, kind guy would do anything for anybody.

President Obama who usually inserts himself into racial matters by making public statements condemning whites for violence against blacks, hasn’t yet uttered a word about black on white crime or "polar bear hunting." 

Maybe it’s because Chris Lane didn’t look like his son. Maybe it's because the three suspects do look like they could have been his son(s). On the subject of "Knockouts", the silence from our President and his black attorney general is deafening.

(In my next post, I'll offer some thoughts on what we as a society need to do about the increasing number of attacks on whites by young black teens.)

That Hideous Strength: C.S. Lewis foresaw Obamacare!

This past Friday, Nov. 22, marked fifty years since the passing of C.S. Lewis. Chances are pretty good you didn't hear about this important milestone as the mainstream media spent all of last week waxing eloquent over Camelot and John F. Kennedy. For most of our media elite, it's "C.S. Who?"

The drive-by media has sought to turn JFK into a saint, overlooking his numerous alleged affairs and sexual encounters, as well as ignoring his culpability of embroiling us in Vietnam. JFK sent the first U.S. troops to Vietnam, where there were 58,220 military fatal casualties in a failed war that had no reason, purpose or definition of victory.

C.S. Lewis
What the media elites missed is the lasting greatness of C.S. Lewis who has touched more lives in light of eternity, making JFK's brief 3 yrs as president like the fleeting appearance of a shooting star compared with the brilliance of a harvest moon.

Lewis foresaw the growth of Big Brother in our daily lives. His prescience characterized our present enslavement to statist efforts to destroy our liberty and freedom:
Two wars necessitated vast curtailments of liberty, and we have grown, though grumblingly, accustomed to our chains. The increasing complexity and precariousness of our economic life have forced Government to take over many spheres of activity once left to choice or chance...There is nothing left of which we can say to (our new leaders), "Mind your own business." Our whole lives are their business. (from the essay, "Is Progress Possible?") 
C.S. Lewis extolled the beauty of the freeborn mind. In his Chronicles of Narnia, Lewis hoped to immunize young people and their parents against the seductive power of a society run by technocrats who offer us hope, medical care, economic stability and permanent employment, if only we will become the "willing slaves of the welfare state." He writes:
To live his life in his own way, to call his house his castle, to enjoy the fruits of his own labour, to educate his children as his conscience directs, to save for their prosperity after his death--these are the wishes deeply ingrained in white and civilized man. Their realization is almost as necessary to our virtues as to our happiness. From their total frustration disastrous results both moral and psychological might follow. (from the essay, "Is Progress Possible?")
This passage is echoed in the description of the four Great Kings and Queens of Narnia in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The reign of Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy was a long and happy one, and one of the key features that Lewis highlights is that they "made good laws and kept the peace...and generally stopped busybodies and interferers and encouraged ordinary people who wanted to live and let live" (chap. 17, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe").

In the long struggle against elite statism and liberal "do-gooders" who know what's best for you and your family, we would be much better off as a nation if our president had spent more time reading C.S. Lewis instead of Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals."

It is no secret which author has had the greatest influence on our president and this administration. But for those who are fans of Lewis, we will continue to side with those in Narnia where liberty, freedom, peace, and good laws reside.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig

All You Fox News Haters:
More People Trust Fox For Information About Obamacare Than Obama Or The Democrats. 

This is so delicious to just sit and watch the unraveling of Obamacare. This overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system, one-sixth of our economy was done by one man--the smartest man anywhere,
Barack Obama. In fact, if he would've developed the website by himself, he could have single-handedly spared himself all this embarrassment because by his own estimation, he is a better program developer than any of the guys Kathleen Sebeilius hired to create the website. 

By Obama's own estimation, he is a better speechwriter than his speech writers, he is a better economist than his team of economic advisers He sits with the heads of businesses and he knows how to run their companies better than any of them. And Obama is braver and more courageous than any of our highly-trained, elite Seal Teams, because Barack Hussein Obama single-handedly took out Osama bin-Laden.

So now we have Obama's "re-write" of Obamacare. He came out on Thursday and said, in effect, that you could NOW keep your present health coverage, at least for another year. And if its been cancelled, well then, it's up to the health insurance companies to "give you back" your old, cancelled, sub-standard policy. 

What the smartest man in the room doesn't seem to understand is that you can't put toothpaste back into the tube, once it's been squeezed out. But then again, that's just a minor detail, just a bump in the road. Obama only did this to provide cover for the Democrats. But his primary reason for doing this is to deflect some of the outrage from himself and the Democrats to the health  insurers. If they can't magically reconstruct new policies in the next 30 days, then Obama will be able to blame them for this problem. And guess what, about 40% of American who get their news from Black Entertainment Television, MTV, MSNBC, or Jon Stewart, will believe him. 

Obama is trying to stall the anger of Americans until AFTER the November 2014 mid-term elections. He doesn't care who is being hurt by this idiotic law. He just doesn't want it to keep
Democrats from taking control of the House of Representatives and holding on to the Senate.

We might as well get rid of Congress because the President, the Executive Branch is now writing and rewriting legislation. Obama has NO authority to delay elements of Obamacare. He can't selectively enforce parts of it while ignoring other parts. But for this brilliant constitutional scholar, our most high President, the law has never posed much of an obstacle. He's above the law and he and only he can choose which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore. 

In a nutshell, Obama and the Democrats are trying to impose on Americans, insurance they don't want, at prices they don't want to pay, while limiting their choices of doctors and hospitals. This is really modern liberalism at work. They really don't care what kind of insurance you have as long as it's MANDATORY. Liberals and progressives love to MANDATE and FORCE their will and vision down the throats of everyone else. 

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. All these so-called "fixes" point out one thing: Obamacare is a disaster on so many levels. It can NEVER be fixed. It can and should be scrapped.

The Day Superman Died.

I was sitting in church yesterday and the worship leader made some reference to Jesus as being our "Superman". Right then and there, it got me to thinking about today's post.

George Reeves. Look at those "padded" muscles, able
to bend steel bars with his bare hands!
I grew up with Superman. When I was a little kid, I watched Superman on  black & white TV (that's pretty much all there was). In the television series, Superman was played by George Reeves. Even as a kid, me and my friends thought he looked too old and his phony muscles came from the poorly-padded costume that he wore. Still, I was a faithful fan of the old Superman TV series, and rediscovered it in color in the 1960s.

I also remember the day Superman died. June 16, 1959 from a gunshot wound to the head. From the description at the time, it was an apparent suicide. My comic book hero was dead. Unbelievable! Some of the innocence of my childhood died that day as well. The realization hit me that my TV heroes were flawed individuals who had the same struggles as me, maybe more so because they were continually forced into a TV personna that was so disconnected from their everyday life. This truth was brought home again this past summer with the tragic death of Cory Monteith from Glee. Who would have imagined that this handsome young actor would die alone in a Vancouver, BC hotel from a drug overdose?

The sad irony is that George Reeves played a character on TV who always came to the rescue in the nick of time, to save ordinary people from the clutches of death and despair. But in real life, when the actor, George Reeves, faced that same dilemma, he felt like he was alone with no one to save him. I wish he could have met the real Superman--the one who saved me just a few years later.

I did meet the real superman about four years after the death of George Reeves. This Superman came to earth to save mankind and like the comic book hero, he too started his public mission at age 30. The Superman I'm referring to is Jesus Christ. I found him at the L.A. Coliseum on a Thursday night in September 1963. I wasn't even looking for him, but he came knocking on my door as I was seated in the top row of the Coliseum. My heart was pounding and he had my attention.

This Superman, Jesus, the Messiah, was and is the true hero. He's able to do a whole lot more than leap tall buildings in a single bound, or bend steel with his bare hands. He set me free from the guilt of my sins. He offered me forgiveness and a new life. I don't have to wait for him to find a phone booth to change out of his street clothes into his "outfit". This superman lives inside of me by his spirit. He's with me 24/7. He directs my steps. As the Psalmist says, "...he leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul."
Kirsten Powers, Reluctant Follower of Jesus the Messiah
This past week I read the story of someone else who met "Superman", aka Jesus, the Messiah. Kirsten Powers, columnist for the Daily Beast and Fox News contributor and analyst writes in the latest issue of Christianity Today about how she became a reluctant follower of Jesus the Messiah. She says,
After college I worked as an appointee in the Clinton administration from 1992 toy 1998. The White House surrounded me with intellectual people who, if they had any deep faith in God, never expressed it. Later, when I moved to New York, where I worked in Democratic politics, my world became aggressively secular. Everyone I knew was politically left-leaning, and my group of friends was overwhelmingly atheist.
As she herself puts it, she was "creeped out" by evangelical Christians whom she derided as anti-intellectual bigots. But God knew her address and knew how to get her attention. The hound of heaven tracked her down while on a trip to Taiwan. He came to her in a dream, and her life hasn't been the same since. (Read all of Kirsten Powers' story: "Highly Reluctant Jesus Follower" at Christianity Today).

This Superman, Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah, the One who is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6) is at work today opening blind eyes of those who may hate him or despise his followers. Because He is the God of mercy, He delights in revealing Himself to those who are his supposed enemies.

Jesus is showing himself to Muslims and people of other faiths every day in dreams and visions. He is the one true Superman who has come to earth to save mankind, to save us from our sins and to bring us into a relationship with God, the Father. It's not about going to heaven--it's about knowing the one true God, the One who is the creator of heaven and earth, and his purpose for our lives right here and now!

The Biggest Lie ever uttered by a U.S. President

The Big Lie. Perhaps the biggest lie ever uttered by a U.S. President:
 "If you like your present healthcare policy, you can keep it, period. No one will take it away from you. No matter what. You will be able to keep your doctor, period." 
That was a LIE and we heard it so many times from the Obama's lips. Why did he lie? Because if he had told the truth, he and the Democrats wouldn't have been able to sell Obamacare. But then that's the standard M.O. for liberals and progressives. They can ONLY get elected by lying. They never tell the truth. 

If they ever told the truth about their true intentions, very few Americans would ever vote for them. If Obama had actually told voters that he wanted to see an increasing number of Americans out of work and on food stamps, who would've voted for him? If he had told voters that he wanted to "cut America down to size" and reduce our standing in the eyes of the world, who would've voted for him? If he had told Americans that he wanted to redistribute the wealth of the producers and give it to the "takers"--who would've voted for him. He had to LIE to get elected.

Now at least 15 million Americans have had their healthcare coverage cancelled and there will be millions more to follow. Another BIG LIE, because these policies were regulated and most of the policy holders were HAPPY with their coverage. (Read the story of a woman with stage 4 cancer who has had her coverage cancelled and will probably die because of Obamacare. "You Can't Keep Your Doctor." )

 But the President and his Democrat allies are rationalizing that these policies were "sub-standard", "lousy" or "skeletal plans." And the President's spokesman, Jay Carney, is likening the Health Insurers to the Wild West where anything goes and unregulated crummy policies were sold to unsuspecting consumers. All of  which is another big LIE and attempt to justify the reason why millions are being kicked off their present healthcare coverage.

Another BIG LIE: The President said that the average family would save around $2400 a month in premiums. WRONG. Most families and individuals are seeing their healthcare premiums skyrocket by hundreds of dollars and their deductible amount is now double, triple or quadruple in cost!

What we have is a President who is a Dictator. He dictates to you and me what kind of coverage we can have and how much we have to pay for it. He determines what is "good" coverage. He determines what is "adequate coverage." He is the Dictator who knows what is good for you because you are too stupid to buy the right coverage for yourself. You're too dumb to know what's best for your family. That's why you have the President and his Democrat allies--they're the smartest and brightest. They will lead you and me out out of the darkness. They will light the way to affordable health care. They care about you--way more than those evil Republicans who want to starve the elderly and babies, and wanted to leave you to rot with your lousy sub-standard, skeletal, crummy health plan as well as your choice of your own stupid doctor, and your affordable monthly premium. How awful is that?!!

What's up with all these "co-exist" bumper stickers?"

While helping my daughter, Sarah, in her recent move from Paducah, KY to Somersworth, New Hampshire,
I kept noticing one bumper sticker which appeared more and more frequently, the closer I got to liberal and enlightened New England. Of course, I'm speaking about the "Coexist" bumper sticker which can be seen on the back window or bumper of Toyota Prius' with the occupants inside singing "Cum-bay-a" and "We are the World."

I'd like to see these drivers sport their "Coexist" bumper stickers in places like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, or Northern Nigeria or Somalia. It's really easy to be tolerant when you're driving your Prius in Stamford, CT. and don't have radical Muslims threatening to behead you.

In case you haven't seen the "Coexist" bumper sticker, here's what it says and means:

  • C = The crescent moon representing Islam. 
  • O = Buddhism
  • E =  Science-the scientific equation
  • X = The star of David, representing Judaism. 
  • I =  Paganism: Wiccan
  • S = The Chinese yin-yang symbol.
  • T = The cross representing Christianity
On the surface, it seems like a reasonable sentiment: "Can't we all put aside our religious differences and get along?"

These same individuals would find it difficult to co-exist with former President George Bush, or Rush Limbaugh, or the Tea Party. It's easy to call for tolerance for a religion, it's another thing to be tolerant and loving toward the next Tea Party conservative you run into, or find yourself in a car with someone listening to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck. How's that co-existence working out, then?

The liberal mind thinks this bumper sticker is really nice and shows great tolerance and enlightenment. However, I'm sure that if they really gave it some serious thought, they'd realize that these religions DON'T worship the same god, DON'T believe in the same the same things and DON'T teach the same values. There is an incredible gulf between each of these religious beliefs. Islam is a religion that doesn't believe in coexistence with anyone. If you are not a Muslim, you are considered an infidel. There is no in-between. 

For the Christian and the Jew, there is no other god but Jehovah. The reason Jews have never assimilated
throughout the centuries due to their stubborn adherence to Yahweh as the one true God. And, Christians, who also believe in Yahweh as Almighty God, also believe that He has revealed Himself to mankind through his son, Jesus, the Messiah who said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father (God) except by me." (John 14:6), You can't  be a follower of Jesus Christ and believe that many roads lead to God and that all religions are equally valid. 

So when you think about it, these drivers with the "coexist" bumper stickers are either naive, ignorant or delusional. They can sing "cum-bay-a" and listen to NPR during their rush-hour drive, but they are no more enlightened or tolerant than the Muslim radical who's sitting in a cave in Yemen.

Two liberals discover they're footing the bill for Obamacare! Priceless!!

Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in Obamacare. They are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama. Yet, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.

Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

This much quickly became clear: People with no pre-existing conditions like Vinson "I was laughing at Boehner -- until the mail came today,"
But people with no pre-existing conditions like Vinson, a 60-year-old retired teacher, and Waschura, a 52-year-old self-employed engineer, are making up the difference.

Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare. "I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level -- the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn't realize they would rise so much.

"Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally." 

Priceless. Who did you think was going to pay for it, Mr. Vinson of San Jose? 

Thank you Tom, for sponsoring me! I have been against this bill from the beginning although I will get this for free. So this makes me feel a bit better and not so guilty because you willingly voted for this. I will think of you every time I visit the doctors office. And you can think of me every time you cannot afford your vacation.

In the immortal words of Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?"

Can't we just stop all this fighting? In the immortal words of Rodney King, "Ca-ca-ca-can't we all this just along?"

The Republican house of representatives has voted 4 times to fully fund the government, everything except Obamacare. It's not the Republicans keeping people out of the World War II
Update: Check out the latest National Review editorial: "Vindictive Shutdown Theatre". This administration going so far as to block roads leading to Mt. Rushmore so you can't even view it. These types of shutdowns are labor-intensive and require more manpower, effort and dollars than keeping the monument or memorial open to the public.

As Jonah Goldberg writes in the National Review, "Obama has always had a bit of a vindictive streak when it comes to politics…President Obama and the Democrats deserve the lion's share of blame for not only prolonging it (for the government shutdown) but also making it as painful as possible…The National Park Service which has somehow become the unofficial goon squad of American liberalism, reversed course and let American World War II vets visit the WWII memorial in Washington D.C."

It actually costs the government MORE money to try to keep WWII vets out of an open-air memorial than to just let it be. But this is how liberals typically make their point--they want to inflict as much pain as possible on the American people.

Between 2500 & 5000 American soldiers were killed during the D-Day
Invasion. There is still no exact count of how many GI's lost their lives
during the initial invasion.
Maybe you saw the news story of American tourists who had traveled to Omaha Beach in Normandy, France to pay their respects to friends and loved ones who are among the 9,387 military dead at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. Here's what is despicable about
all this: We can find the money to send workers to these memorials to keep people out, even under threat of arrest, but we can't come up with the dough to keep these most hallowed memorials open. And these are OPEN-AIR memorials which require little or no upkeep. What kind of supervision do you need over the visitors who want to visit the memorial graves at Normandy?

Normandy American Cemetery, shut down by Obama administration
But this is typical of this White House which loves to inflict pain on the American people. Remember, this is the same White House which still finds the money for travel, vacations, and White House concerts but trying to make a statement about the seriousness of the sequester, they closed down White House tours.

The President and the Democrats are blaming the Republicans for holding America hostage. But it's really the President who refuses to negotiate with the Republicans, who is truly enjoying this government shutdown. This is having zero effect on his golf game. But to the dismay of those tourists who have planned for months to visit the memorials of loved ones who gave their lives in the fight for our freedom and liberty, this is no game, it's another example of a President who takes delight in bringing pain and disappointment to the American people, even on foreign soil.

Attorney General Holder speaks in "code"--but I've broken the code, using my special decoder ring.

As I write this post, I'm watching "World War Z" and it's kind of hard to follow the zombie attack on Jerusalem (didn't know zombies were "anti-semitic") and talk about politics. But here goes...bear with me.

Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department on Monday SUED North Carolina to block new state voting rules, part of a growing battle between the Democrat administration and Republican-controlled state houses over election laws and race. Holder said that new legislation in North Carolina would make it harder for many minority voters to participate in the electoral process. He was speaking in a special code but thankfully, I've broken the code, using my Capt. Midnight decoder ring which I received from sending in 3 seals from Ovaltine, the drink of champions.

Now when Eric Holder says that it makes it harder for "many minority voters" to participate in the electoral process, he's not talking about those who are Chinese, or Vietnamese, or those in the Indian community--no, this is "code" (which I have "decoded" using my special Capt.Midnight decoder ring) for black Americans or African-Americans. Apparently, Holder thinks that if you are black, you are too dumb to get an ID, or participate in the electoral process without some form of fraud. If I were black, I would be so offended, I'd grab the nearest microphone to tell off Holder that I don't need his help, and I'm NOT being disenfranchised from the electoral process. I'd tell Eric Holder to mind his own business and stop all this race-baiting. 

Yes, it's no secret that Holder is a true-blue racist. The VOTER ID threatens no one's rights. It ONLY makes it hard for Obama and Democrats to perpetuate voter fraud.
  • You need a photo ID to get a drink.
  • You need a photo ID to get on a plane.
  • You need a photo ID to rent a car, or to rent equipment.
  • You need a photo ID to cash a check.
  • You need a photo ID to enroll in social security or get food stamps or welfare.
  • You need a photo ID to rent an apt. or buy a house or get a mortgage.
  • You need a photo ID to buy Sudafed.

Let's just say it right out. Democrats want every illegal, ineligible and dead person to be able to cast a vote and be able to do it multiple times in multiple precincts. They know which way those votes will go and are willing to sacrifice the integrity of the system and effectively cancel out MY vote to retain power. To top it off, they pull out the trusty race card in an attempt to justify it and the media is an oh so willing accomplice. 

If you don't have a photo ID in America in 2013, you're too stupid to vote anyway!

Obama's solution to the Washington Navy Yard Massacre: More disarmed people!!

Last Sunday, President Barack Obama called for changes to gun laws while speaking at a memorial service honoring the 12 people killed by a gunman at the Washington Navy Yard. Never let a massacre by a crazed killer go to waste. 

President Obama said:
"We don't take the basic common sense actions to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people." That is administration code words for gun-grabbing, national firearms registry, restricting the kinds of firearms that a citizen can own, magazine capacities, etc. The rhetoric is always the same!
Aaron Alexis
I agree we need to keep weapons from crazies, including weapons like firearms, knives, baseball bats, pipe bombs, large rocks, etc. But we don't mitigate the situation by restricting the gun ownership by 99.9% of the law-abiding citizens.

Here's something for the President and all his liberal buds to consider, and maybe offer us an explanation. How can this senseless tragedy occur in Washington DC where we already have the toughest gun-control laws in the nation? The military even prohibits personnel from carrying personal weapons on base. So, the President's answer to this tragedy is MORE gun-control laws? We're NOT even enforcing the existing gun-laws that are on the books.

Aaron Alexis preparing to gun down 12 unarmed victims.
A crazed gunman enters the Navy Yard with a ton of DISARMED people, and kills twelve of them. So what does Obama propose? MORE DISARMED PEOPLE!!

What does the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard have in common with the Aurora, Colorado shooting and the Sandy Hook massacre of school children? All three heinous acts were perpetrated by mentally-ill individuals who needed psychiatric treatment. Have you heard the President tackling this issue which is at the heart of these mass shootings? The silence is deafening!! All I hear is crickets.

Breaking news! Glitch affects roll-out of health exchanges!

The headline in today's Wall Street Journal: Glitch Affects Roll-out of Health Exchanges.
Less than two weeks before the launch of insurance marketplaces created by the health overhaul, the software can't reliably determine how much people need to pay for their health coverage.

Can you believe this? This is what we have to look forward to with Obamacare--2 weeks from the start of the all important health exchanges, and the software doesn't work. 

Peter W. Fierro left the following comment on this story:
Intent to deal with the computer issues the same way he does Congress, the Supreme Court, Iran, etc. and etc., sources say that BHO walked into the server room, and gave the system a stern warning that it had better get itself into compliance in time. Then he headed for the golf course, stopping only to pick up a carton of smokes.
That about says it all. Thanks Peter!

Have a great weekend. Stay healthy cause you can't depend on Obamacare!

We've all been lied to.

The other day, I'm listening to some guy on the radio who all of a sudden proclaims: "We've all been lied to. Every single one of us has been lied to."

That got me to thinking about all the various ways we've been lied to.

This is a non-partisan rant because we've ALL (you and me) been lied to by:
  • Republicans
  • Democrats
  • Independents
  • We've been lied to by Obama and Geo.W. Bush. We were lied to about the Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq wars. When some soldiers like Pat Tilman were killed by friendly fire, our government tried to cover it up and lied to us and the families.
  • We've been lied to by the media who refuse to report all the facts, and conveniently edit the facts to support their leftist agenda.
  • We were lied to about Fast and Furious as well as the IRS targeting conservative groups, and of course, Benghazi, where the President and State Dept. wanted us to believe that this tragedy erupted
    because of a YouTube video.
  • We've been lied to by those who tell us there is a political solution to the mess we're in as a nation.
  • We've been lied to by those who would have us believe that the next election will turn everything around for our nation.
  • We've been lied to by our teachers and professors who tried to brainwash us with information that wasn't really true, accurate or necessary. They tried to build up our self-esteem at the expense of being tough on us and giving us a solid education that could have included critical thinking and hurt feelings because we didn't study enough and weren't prepared.  
  • They lied to us about the environment, about the dolphins, about global warming, and of course, about Obamacare.
  • We were lied to about the measure of success. Making a million dollars or more didn't make us feel any better or give us any more purpose in life. Having a BMW and a new Lexus didn't help us sleep any better at night.
  • We were lied to when they told us that religion is a private thing--just keep it to yourself. 
  • We were lied to when we thought we could have it all, forsaking nothing.
  • We were lied to when we thought that being a good, moral person is good enough to get us into heaven.
  • We were lied to when we were told that "all roads lead to heaven."
  • We were lied to when we were told that Jesus was a great man, a great teacher, a great leader, but he certainly wasn't God.
  • We have been lied to on a daily basis when we think that "sin" is an outdated, old-fashioned concept and that we are basically good people, with good intentions.
  • We have been lied to when we thought that we could ignore the spiritual vacuum deep inside our soul by just keeping busy, by constantly being entertained, and seeking new "highs" and "thrills."
  • We were lied to when they told us that it was "ok" to be a Christian, just don't go overboard with it. Don't become one of those religious, right-wing "nut jobs" who think Jesus is concerned about every aspect of their lives, and actually hears and answers their prayers.
  • We've been lied to by those who tell us that the mess we're in as a nation is a call to action rather than a call to get on our knees and pray.
Where does all this lying come from? What is the origin of all the LIES?

Jesus said to the Pharisses  (John 8:44), "You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies."

All lies originate with Satan (the Devil) who was there in the garden lying to Eve when he told her that if she ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, that she would be like God. And, he's been lying to us ever since.

There is a Truth that will set you free...

If you are seeking the truth, seek the One who is TRUTH.
Jesus said, "I am the way, the TRUTH and the Life, no man comes to the Father but by me." (John 14:6)

Jesus said to the Jews who believed in him, (John 8:31-32) 
“If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

One question needs to be answered on the Benghazi anniversary

Today, Sept. 11, marks the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya where Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ty Woods were murdered. A month later, Obama said regarding the attack that "this is my biggest priority now...bringing those folks to justice, and I think the American people have seen that's a commitment I'll always keep."

Do you believe that? It's been a
year and we've identified the participants, they've been interviewed on CNN, but still no one has been apprehended. Nothing has been done.
I have only one question that remains unanswered:
A year ago today....
where was  Obama BETWEEN the hours of  5pm to 1am?

What was he doing? Why have we never been given his minute-by-minute schedule and whereabouts during the terrorist attack on our embassy in Benghazi? When we took out Bin-Laden, Obama and Hillary were together in the White House situation room? Who was in the situation room during this attack where 4 Americans were slaughtered? Was the situation room empty? As far as we know, it was dark and no one was there. Where were they? Where was President Obama during this attack?

Mr. President, what happened to your "cool" diplomacy?

Obama wants to go to war with Syria? Why? Because they crossed a "red line." And, now we learn that it wasn't "his" red line, it's the international community's red line and Congress' red line. Obama never takes responsibility for any thing including his OWN words in 2012 where he said it was HIS RED LINE.

Whatever happened to Obama's Magical Diplomacy?

What happened to diplomacy? When he ran for prez in 2008, Obama mocked Bush for his "war-mongering" tendencies (even though Bush assembled 50 nations to support his war against Iraq) and said what was needed was diplomacy. Barack Hussein Obama assured us that he could win the respect of the international community. He assured us that he could arrive at a peaceful solution to conflicts rather than resorting to war. Yeah, and how's that working out Mr. President? Thus far, the international community thinks he's a joke and no one wants to join him in his "shot across the bow" to Syria. Obama has LESS respect among the nations of the world than here at home. They have come to realize that he can't be trusted and he is not fit to lead a group of children as a crossing guard across the street much less a war against Syria.

What does a "shot across the bow" mean?

Even if it is just a shot across the bow, when one takes such a shot it is a warning of future action if the warning is not heeded, but in this case WHAT FUTURE ACTION? We don't have a plan for the Middle Syria. The way this "shot across the bow" has been described, it sounds like just another thicker red line, sort of like voting present. And what happens if Syria resorts to chemical weapons again?
East, much less

When Obama addresses the nation on Tuesday evening, most of America will tune him out. He's a summer rerun when the new fall shows are starting. He has exhausted his credibility. He has lied to us on too many occasions. How about "Fast and Furious", Solyndra, ACA honey pot, IRS, Benghazi, NSA? He lied about the cause of death of the 4 Americans in Benghazi and we still don't know what the President was doing from 5pm to 1am on Sept. 11, 2012. And we have a press corps with zero curiosity. No one has pressed him for his minute-by-minute whereabouts on Sept. 11. 

New bumper sticker: "No blood for ego"
Going to war against Syria will NOT restore America's credibility. We have no credibility among our allies or our enemies. America's credibility will NOT be restored until Obama is out of office. And since when do we go to war to protect the reputation and credibility of a foolish president who doesn't really care about what's going on in Syria or the Middle East. The only thing he cares about is his next golf game.
