OFFEND, OFFEND! Jesus “Offended” and Believers/Conservatives Should Follow!

“Clearly the show is not the right fit for you,” …… “I also do not want the show to be so extreme that it alienates the left.”….. Wrote the producer of a new online show allegedly created for Christian, conservative and libertarian female viewers. The producer terminated me in Facebook messenger after her dissatisfaction of my “passion” of the truth and disagreeing with the main host. The producer also included her bullet points for the show which was not shared with me until the termination – two of the points were rather interesting: “To avoid alienating listeners who may be affiliated with an entirely different set of beliefs and political views. * To avoid projecting intolerance and/or disrespect towards those who do not share their belief system including fellow co-hosts.”

No wonder America has a growing Marxist and anti-God movement! Even Obama boasted that America was no longer a Christian nation.  Americans have become far too sensitive to opposing views, the truth and God’s word. Unfortunately far too many Christians have concentrated on a few verses and not the whole context of scripture to just keep turning their other cheek sitting back while the so-called “progressives” aggressively take over the country and remove God from the public square.

Ephesians 6:14

“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place…”

A couple weeks before the show I received yet another facebook message from a fellow entrepreneur who shared they had “unfriended” another business associate, for which we are both friends, due to their passionate political timeline posts. This entrepreneur, whom I highly respect, stated when it comes to business we should not be vocal about our views publicly. Unfortunately this is an opinion shared by many in network marketing. The Bible is clear we are to be equally yoked in all relationships which include business. (John 15:18-19: “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”) Therefore I respectfully disagreed with my associate and cited numerous successful, famous businessmen and women who did not shy away from publicly telling their political or religious views. Did my fellow associate became offended or hurt by my stance? No as a matter of fact, he appreciated the dialogue and we continued with a very lovely chat proving that disagreements can be a moment of enlightenment and growth for all participants.

Other individuals must also be frustrated with the whole kumbaya practice within conservative circles as well because recently I have read numerous articles with writers frustrated with the “shrinking violet” mentality of the “right” while the “left” continues their bullying and oft times violent attacks.

Thomas Jefferson once stated: “Question with boldness. Hold to the truth. Speak without fear.” Wise words advised in order to hold onto true liberty. The Founding Fathers verbally argued and even physically brawled due to their own disagreements. They did not concern themselves with “disrespecting or offending” those with opposing viewpoints. If these men had shied away from conflict, a Republic form of government with a Constitution would never had been formed. In fact George Washington warned: “If citizens start to take liberty for granted, if their culture — molded by journalists and writers, preachers and teachers — starts to hold other values in higher esteem, then the spirit that gives life to the Constitution will flicker out.” Obviously the likes of radical Saul Alinsky and Karl Marx took note and devised schemes to transform culture which indeed “molded” today’s media, entertainment, education and religious arenas. Today we are part of a society in which people of faith and conservative values are out-voiced by those with opposing views. In fact one can often hear republican-types apologizing for their words and offering that they are not a “racist” with homosexual and black friends. How many times do we hear those on the left apologizing and stating they have heterosexual and church-attending friends?

Nearly two decades ago a popular Christian book series began – The “Left Behind” novels told an end times story based on the Book of Revelations. In the second book, TRIBULATION FORCE, the Anti-Christ character, Nicolae, shares “…..the opportunity to achieve my lifelong dream, I want peace. I want global disarmament. I want the peoples of the world to live as one….” In the series, Nicolae leads the UN and takes over global communication demanding one viewpoint. Sound familiar?

Indeed the Anti-Christ’s mission is one shared by radicals like Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, both of whom “honored” Satan in their work. In fact Alinsky declared that Satan was truly the “first radical”. Clearly we see the force of “liberal” views in society today by all means including physical violence. This same group constantly declaring they want “world peace” while showing strong intolerance of Godly and conservative morals.

1 Corinthians 2:14

“The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.”

We should not ever expect those with opposing views to agree or listen to us. God instead commands us to be “the salt of the earth” and with boldness and without apology spread both the Good News and moral truth. We should never cower or be afraid to rebuke a brother or sister in Christ who holds a false view. Remember Jesus so “offended” others that he was crucified to death. One should be honored when they “offend” others for speaking the Godly truth. Jesus even comforted believers to be bold with the following words: John 15:18-19: “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.”

The producer was absolutely correct, her show was not a match for me as I refuse to be silenced or to lose my passion for truth and liberty. Those affiliated with the show may have good intentions, but alas the teachings of Jesus misunderstood. Recently I read a blog on the subject of “offending” and “disrespecting” others which reminded believers to be bold and to “offend” – do not let the title fool you: https://answersingenesis.org/bible-questions/christians-should-never-offend-anyone/

For those who read and study scripture they know there will NEVER be “peace” with the wicked. Yes, there will be a period of a false “peace” in which the Anti-Christ rules and believers will be “underground” while still witnessing to save others from eternal death, but the wicked will continue to plot and force their one world agenda. Thus we should heed the words from Proverbs 28:1 – “The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.”

A few years ago I listened to our church pastor give a sermon on why the “church” was losing membership in our society. He cited a poll in which participants proclaimed they thought Jesus was cool, but they did not like Christians. They provided many reasons including both hypocrisy and not being “truthful” with their messages. Apparently those polled wanted to hear believers share the Gospel truth instead of sugar-coating their messages. However they were attracted to Jesus for his courage and honest ministry regardless if they agreed or not.

Perhaps the thirst for bold truth is one of the reasons, the very outspoken Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, instead of the more “tolerant, meek” republican candidates. Ann Coulter is a both a best-selling author and popular television guest who is always bold and never concerned about “offending or disrespecting” those who disagree with her views. Both Mark Dice and Paul Joseph Watson are rising alternative news voices due to their very outspoken and brash commentary. In fact “liberals” are constantly verbally attacking these two yet they still “listen” to their messages. Why? Because deep down that group wants to hear the truth as we are ALL made in the image of God, thus everyone craves Godly morality, even if they reject it in their own lives! If we intend to reach those who need to hear the truth, then we must do so by following Jesus’ example. Bear in mind, Jesus never said, “Please listen to me. I have a friend who was a prostitute. I do not want to come across as intolerant.”…..no, instead he boldly demanded, “Give up your life and follow me!”. He even lost his temper in the public square due to the rebellion of those with “opposing” beliefs.

Time for the “right” to stop worrying about “alienating” the “left” or “offending/disrespecting” others with opposing views! This “tolerant” practice is not winning souls or even minds! Wake up and follow the teachings of the Bible: Acts 28:31 – “Proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.”

If we start practicing boldness and true liberty “free” speech, we will then be able to reach those who oppose us. Like those polled years ago shared, they truly want to hear the courageous TRUTH without apology! Although I do not share the same religious beliefs as Ghandi, I do agree with this famous quote: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” And “winning” is what we want to accomplish in order to change minds, hearts and souls for eternal life!

Trump, Cruz – Patriots or Partners with World Elite?

A recent Breitbart article captured my attention with the headline “Bill Kristol has Strategy to Give White House to Hilary IF Trump Should Win!” Now why would a leading Republican voice want to risk dismantling the GOP by helping the party lose to a criminal democrat who should really be behind  bars?  The true reason behind this declaration needs a closer inspection.

According to the Breibart report William (Bill) Kristol, the editor-in-chief of the Weekly Standard, was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe discussing Donald Trump’s campaign.  Kristol boasted he had a plan to deprive Trump of the 50% delegates required to secure the Republican nomination and force a brokered convention. He further declared that his scheme included cutting a deal which awards enough delegates to an “acceptable” candidate.  He also told Joe Scarborough that “we” have to stop the momentum and ensure Trump loses in both Florida and Ohio in order to keep the race open for another candidate to gain the nomination.

For the past few years the registered Republican numbers were on decline, however since Trump entered the race for POTUS, the numbers are once again increasing.  In fact the numbers are up a full 7% with larger than expected voter turnout for the primaries.  Logically would it not benefit the party to support such an historic populist front-runner?  It appears that the voting majority disagree with Bill about “the Donald” not being an “acceptable” candidate, so why did he state “we” must stop the momentum (of WE the People)?  The answers become apparent after a deeper investigation.

washgconconvjuniusbrutusstearnsvamu

First, besides operating The Weekly Standard, who is Bill Kristol?  Bill was also the Co-Founder of Project for the New America Century a neoconservative think tank based in Washington DC with the stated goal of “promoting  American global leadership” via wars and aggressive foreign policies.  Quite the contrast of George Washington’s sage advice in his farewell speech in which he firmly stated “Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all”, in addition: “It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.”  Washington’s speech should be read in entirety by all Americans to confirm that he believed true liberty meant not being aggressive with other countries, but instead not entangle with foreign alliances and focus on the sovereignty of the Republic. Yet the Project’s other co-founder, Robert Kagan, defined himself as “a liberal interventionist”.  Others who signed or funded the New America Century included former Vice-President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and media mogul Rupert Murdoch (FOX News). PNAC released a statement back in June 1997 which included the following statement:

“We need to increase defense spending significantly if we are to carry out our global responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future; we need to strengthen our ties to democratic allies and to challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values; we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad; we need to accept responsibility for America’s unique role in preserving and extending an international order…”

Although some Americans may believe the statement sounds positive, this was not the vision the Founding Fathers laid forth. For instance in 1799 Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter advising

“I am for free commerce with all nations, political connection with none, and little or no diplomatic establishment. And I am not for linking ourselves by new treaties with the quarrels of Europe, entering that field of slaughter to preserve their balance, or joining in the confederacy of Kings to war against the principles of liberty.”

Clearly PNAC’s goal was the complete opposite of the Founder’s intentions. So where did PNAC’s ideas originate?  Bill Kristol’s very own father, the late Irving Kristol was nicknamed “the Godfather of Neoconservatism”a label he proudly wore.

CHANGING AMERICAN POLITICS

Irving Kristol was born in 1920, Brooklyn, New York to Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe. He was schooled with and supported radical socialism in the 1930s.  He later would become a contributing writer to “Commentary” which was a liberal Jewish Monthly Review magazine.  “Commentary” provided the intellectual roots for neoconservatism.  He also was an active member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

The neocon movement was formerly established in the 1960s by a group of socialist democrats which included both Irving and Max Shactman who was a prominent member of the Communist Party USA and considered a leading Marxist theorist.  However this group of socialist-communist democrats rejected the hippie counterculture movement and decided to vacate the democrat party and infiltrate the republican party instead.

By 1979 the neoconservative movement had gained notoriety and became the basis of the book released that year titled The Neo-Conservatives: The Men who are Changing America’s Politics.  Irving was prominently featured in the book.  When he was asked “What is Neo-Conservatism?”, he answered “it is not ideology but persuasion” and that neocons were truthfully “a liberal who has been mugged by reality”.

New World Order

Why did American politics need to change?  Neocons may occasionally refer to the Constitution which is the foundation of our politics but their agenda is clearly not Constitutional.  Since the Founding Documents are supposed to be our politics which formed a limited government model espousing the ideals of individual freedom and liberty, then what did they “change” in our form of government?  Former President George H.W. Bush, a neocon, announced in a state of the union speech, “We have before us the opportunity to forge for ourselves and future generations a new world order……….an order in which an incredible United Nations can use its peace keeping role to fulfill its promise and vision of the UN’s founders.” He did not affirm to keep the promise and vision of the Republic’s Founding Fathers, but instead the UN’s.

The United Nation’s is a one world government organization promoting “international cooperation”and was established after World War II to replace The League of Nations.  During his Nobel Peace Prize speech, United States Diplomat Ralph Bunche sounded “It is worthy of emphasis that the United Nations exists not merely to preserve the peace but also to make change – even radical change..”    Years later Americans would be bombarded with the word “change” during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign stating “Yes we can”.

Thomas Jefferson and company established America to be a country in which the people governed and were represented by individuals who defended the people’s rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness without government dictatorship.  In fact, Jefferson confirmed by stating:

“A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.”

Scalia’s Death Confirms POTUS Constitutional Eligibilty Crucial

By now everyone in America is aware that Honorable Justice Antonin Scalia died over Valentine’s Weekend. Unfortunately this was not a Valentine gift for any Constitution defending American, especially considering the possibility that this will be the third “judge” appointed by Saul Alinksky fan, Barrack Obama. Furthermore, if the GOP does not stop the appointment during an election year and Obama once again strong-arms his way, then the lifetime appointment will fundamentally transform the court into a “liberal” majority not honoring the Founders’ original intent of the Constitution.

In fact 4 years ago while in Cairo, former President Bill Clinton appointed justice, Ruth Ginsburg, declared to a group of Muslim “revolutionaries” during an interview, “I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012. I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done.” Indeed “social justice” was used by the liberal court members when they “legislated” instead of protecting the Constitution during the aggressive “marriage” debate. A fact that Scalia knew and warned Americans in his dissent: “The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact—and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Consti­tution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected commit­tee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extrav­agant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most im­portant liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”

Unfortunately the “revision” of the Constitution is not just isolated with the highest court in the land, but also with the highest office of the country, the President of the United States. Back in 2008 before Obama was elected, I watched a video created by a democrat attorney declaring that Obama was not eligible for POTUS. After listening intently, I decided to start researching the possibility that his ineligibility could be true by reading words from the very first supreme judge of the land, John Jay. Judge Jay wrote the following words to George Washington on July 25, 1787: “Permit me to hint whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of foreigners into the administration of our national government; and to declare expressly that the command in chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on any but a natural born citizen.” In addition, the authors of the founding documents, relied on the works of Swiss Diplomat Emer de Vattel who wrote the following in “The Law of Nations”, “The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

In conclusion of extensive review, yes the Constitutional eligibility of a candidate for POTUS is of extreme importance to prevent any type of foreign influence, enemy infiltration, or radical transformation of America. This criteria was extremely important to the Framers of America and in fact there are many famous quotes from speeches, letters, and books to validate this position. Perhaps the most relevant is from Washington’s farewell speech in which he warned against the abuse of political party power and their allowing for enemy infiltration: “It serves always to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.”

Many modern day liberty defenders have loudly tried to educate other voters on being concerned about this very crucial Constitutional matter which shockingly has gone ignored by the mainstream. One would think that every American would be concerned about sovereignty, security, liberty, life, property and country and the ‘executive’ who can, with their power and influence, destroy every aspect. Instead those of us who attempt to awaken and educate are mocked and even labeled “birthers” as if we are the ones on the wrong side. Even self-proclaimed ‘conservative’ radio host Mark Levin has declared us to be “kooks” and “goofballs” yet admits he has “not” even “studied the issue” which according to him “is not a constitutional issue.” (Say what??) No Levin, it is not “interpretive” for just your non-researched “opinion” as the Constitution is quite clear Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 states:

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”

Founders

For those who believe eligibility is a “non-issue”, the Founders held many debates regarding the establishment or not of common law and what it meant to be American. President John Adams perhaps summarizes it best, “Loyalty to country ALWAYS. Loyalty to government, when it deserves it.” Thus since America was established by the text of the Founding Documents, then our loyalty should be to those words and intent versus the words of paid media puppets, power hungry deceptive politicians and special interest lobbyists, corporations and organizations who each display self-interest instead of genuine interest in defending the Constitution. Veritably some of these self-interest individuals and organizations have attempted to abuse the 14th amendment in order to confuse voters, however the amendment did not change the Article 2 requirement for the Oval Office and in reality was just intended for slaves. In fact Minor vs. Happersett confirmed that the 14th Amendment did not grant any right to vote, regardless of sex, age or citizenship, thus no right for political office either. The following is an excerpt from the final decision:

“Additions might always be made to the citizenship of the United States in two ways: first, by birth, and second, by naturalization. This is apparent from the Constitution itself, for it provides [n6] that “no person except a natural-born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of the Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President,” [n7] and that Congress shall have power “to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.” Thus new citizens may be born or they may be created by naturalization.

The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. … “

Ironically Obama declared on Saturday, “I plan to fulfill my constitutional responsibilities to nominate a successor in due time. There will be plenty of time for me to do so and for the Senate to fulfill its responsibility to give that person a fair hearing and a timely vote. These are responsibilities that I take seriously, as should everyone.” How can an unconstitutionally eligible “President” honor the very document he ignored to gain office? In a country filled with individuals educated with the principles of liberty, he would have never been a candidate for the highest office, since the educated voters would have rose up in unity to prevent his unlawful campaign.

Regrettably now the conservative and libertarian communities are voicing both concern and outrage on social media. Republican members of congress are threatening to block any nomination and reminding democrats of their resolution 334 written back in 1960, “Expressing the sense of the Senate that the president should not make recess appointments to the Supreme Court, except to prevent or end a breakdown in the administration of the Court’s business.” Plus the reminder of Senator Chuck Schumer’s words that President Bush should not be able to confirm Roberts during his final year in the White House in order to represent all Americans and not just conservative cliques.

However none of these reminders, threats, and concerns would be present today had the American people been more troubled by the danger of corruption and possible foreign infiltration of the executive branch of America. If one wants to destroy a nation, it is easiest to accomplish from within. Why the American people show little regard for the Constitutional eligibility of any candidate is not only a rather disturbing question, but also an easy opening for enemy aggression. Besides Obama, there are currently two ineligible republican candidates, Cruz and Rubio, for which conservatives show rabid support despite their lack of Constitutional requirements for POTUS. Literally their supporters will verbally attack you and question your patriotism for bringing up any evidence to support the truth.

America the Republic was buried decades ago, in fact some people claim as far back as Lincoln’s presidency. (Personally believe the final death nail was at the inception of the Federal Reserve.) Nonetheless, America could be restored if voters became truly interested with freedom and liberty launching a serious study of the Founding documents and the Framers’ intent by reading their books, speeches and letters. Once educated on true liberty, voters may be more inclined to not merely trust the words of a candidate or base decisions based on personality and/or image.

Sadly Scalia’s death is clouded with terrifying suspicion due to shared details that he was discovered dead with a pillow on his head. Furthermore, the local democrat judge, Cinderella Guevara, announced that there was no foul play although there was no investigation or autopsy to confirm her declaration. In fact his body was embalmed immediately. Plenty of other news articles and blogs are addressing this controversy. But these details and suspicions may have never occurred in the first place if we had an honest government filled with representatives who honored their oaths and carried out the will of the people, rather than the will of banks, corporations, investors, secret cabals, special interests and foreign influences all with malicious intent to advance their nefarious agendas.

Sadly this country lost a Supreme Court Judge who actually understood the Constitution and honored his oath even when his decisions upset special interest groups. Now as a consequence of voters who do not understand or care about the text of the Articles of the Constitution, the United States now faces the complete radical transformation of the Judicial Branch in an attempt to completely shred and rewrite the law of the land with social “justice” personal preferences.

In conclusion, all parts of the Constitution, not just sections, matter which includes the section detailing the eligibility of a presidential candidate. This executive branch criteria should be of utmost importance to voters. Today would be quite different had Obama never unlawfully taken office or had been lawfully removed from office. May Scalia’s untimely death and the new appointment process be a wake up call for all voters regardless of political party affiliation!

 

The Truth Battles Racism

The Black-Female-Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences-President, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, stated after the Oscar-nominee-announcements, “the all-white acting slate inspires me to accelerate the academy’s push to be more inclusive.” and “hopes the film industry as a whole will continue to strive for greater diversity.” (Does anyone else see the irony?)

Last year the poignant film “12 Years a Slave” swept the Oscars with the movie winning “Best Film of the Year”.  The film, based on the book of the same name, was directed and produced by the very talented Steve McQeen (the Black gentlemen, not the deceased legendary actor). In addition Lupita Nyong’O won the award for “Best Supporting Actress” for her work in the film.

In fact if you examine the last 5 years of the Academy Awards, one would discover a list of “diverse” nominees and winners including the brilliant Denzil Washington, the lovely Octavia Spencer., the legendary Morgan Freeman, the vivacious Mo’Nique and many more.

Ms. Boone-Isaacs is not the only complaining commentator regarding the nominations, besides film critics, Salon.com, and a few more, Al Sharpton declared that “an emergency meeting” must take place.  An emergency?  Why, was there a terrorist threat against the film academy?  Perhaps a ‘sniper’?

Since Clint Eastwood was an outspoken critic of Obama and supported the GOP Presidential ticket back in 2012, I suspect with his film “American Sniper” earning several nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Editing, this caused some disturbance within Sharpton and others..  (Frankly, I think it is more perplexing that the film earned almost every other nomination, except for Best Director.)

Will Sharpton and all the other ‘judges’ demand for the call of “an emergency meeting” and diversity after the announcements for the Black Entertainment Television, the Black Vine Entertainment, the American Latino Media Arts, or the Latin Grammy Awards?  I suspect not.  I understand groups wanting to reward their ‘own’ communities and honestly have no issue with the various award shows, But since there is no Caucasian Entertainment Awards (and if one existed, there would be national outrage from special interest groups, politicians, media, and Hollywood), the Academy Awards should be the one show for which TALENT and NOT “race or diversity” be the ONLY criteria.

Now if the Oscars turns into a campaign for ‘race and diversity’ instead of artistry in the future, then it would be only fair for a Caucasian only awards show just like every other group; otherwise the entertainment community becomes just another oppressed, hypocritical, judgmental community – instead of the “free speech”, diverse community they claim to magnify.

Amid all the Academy backlash, the Oprah Winfrey produced “Selma” has been nominated for Best Picture.  Perhaps the real outcry is due to the fact none of “Selma’s” actors were nominated for any of the acting categories.  Since the Hollywood community is really “left of center” in both social issues and politics, I am more inclined to believe the work and the ‘inside-Hollywood Studio-campaign to be nominated’ vs. “racism” are closer to the truth.

SELMA is an historical-drama based on the 1965 Civil Rights March lead by the distinguished Martin Luther King, Jr. As we honor King’s birthday this weekend after a year of ‘hoodies’, Ferguson, riots/looting and rantings from Sharpton,Jackson,Holder and Obama, “civil rights” is back at the top of discussions.  In fact based on the numerous entertainment, media, and political reports, one is expected to believe we are back living in the chattel slavery days with all ‘white’ people wearing pointy hoods and burning crosses on lawns.

Is this the truth?   The President of the United States, the hit ABC show “Black-ish”, top current Billboard artists – Beyonce, Nick Minaj, Big Sean, Usher (and many more), hit film SELMA, the NBA, the NFL….seriously does a list even need to be created?!!

According to the latest *U.S. Census statics 62..6% of America is ‘white’ while 17.1% are Hispanic or Latino, 13.2% are Black or African American, 5.3% Asian, 1.2% are Native American Indian, and 2.6% are a mixture of other races.  Considering these statistics, there is a higher than proportional representation of minority races in media, entertainment, and politics.

While the chanting of “Black Lives Matter” sweeps the nation (and I agree – in fact all lives matter), there is a disturbing statistic which cites the Black community possesses the highest rate of abortion.*  Approximately 2/3 of all abortions are unfortunately amongst the minority populations.

Furthermore, in contrast to public accusations, racial crimes are not an epidemic in America.*  In fact the opposite, every race seems to victimize their own race.  In addition, staying true to the U.S. population, whites commit the most crimes in America today.

So why all the charges of “racism” growing louder?  Plain and simple – AGENDA!  Hitler’s Nazi Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels boldly stated, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”**

One of the Marxism theories insists in the derision of any ruling class and eroding any type of higher economic class. In fact American social and racial community organizer, Saul Alinsky stated in his first of 12 “Rules for Radicals”: RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have. Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.”

Recently a flyer* was posted up at a BART station in the San Francisco Bay area which demanded a communist revolution across America.  The posting stated “…having a Black president does not change shit for us…” and a a couple sentences later demanded a call for “….overthrowing the capitalist-imperialist system…”.  Photos and videos from post Ferguson riots across the country showed communist organization signs proving they were leading the charges attempting to incite race wars.

In addition, to the current radical agenda, back in 1871, Albert Pike, considered an historic Freemason leader, wrote a letter drafting a plan for three major wars to result in both an economic disaster and a ‘new world order’.*  An excerpt from the letter proves ‘communism’ was a tool to accomplish the feat: “At the end of the (first) war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions.”   The ‘second war’ portion cites the following: “…International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm.”  And the third war part of the letter states: “…..Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view.”

Christians should not be shocked with Pike’s plan since scripture clearly warns us that Satan is the Great Deceiver, Divider, and Liar.  John 8:44: “..He (Satan) was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. ” Revelation 12:9: “…the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world….”

Now I am not suggesting that racism does not exist, because then I would be no better than the propagandists, however from my daily experiences I see love and unity amongst the majority,  However unfortunately hate does exist in the world and has since the very beginning of time.  In fact, contrary to a Duke University Professor’s claim – ALL races, not just whites, possess ‘racism’ against others.  Period!

When I was 8 years old, my first ‘boyfriend’ was Anthony.  Of course at the age of 8 it was a completely innocent relationship which really meant we had “puppy love crushes” and holding hands was really the extent of it. We walked home from school with each other daily, sometimes holding hands.  No one flinched until one day Anthony’s grandmother noticed us holding hands.  She literally shouted at the top of her lungs, “Anthony drop that white girl’s hand.”.  It scared the both of us and I ran all the way home crying.  My parents comforted me, but I just could not understand.  After this incident, Anthony never spoke to me again.

Fast forward a decade later, my best friend Lisa and I were sitting in an audience for a live show taping when suddenly the three women behind us shunned Lisa for “sitting with a white girl instead of her own…”.  Not too long after this incident, a group of Black girls, ganged up on me in a grocery store parking lot shouting “white bitch” and other hate-filled words.  I did not know these girls at all.  Thankfully some men stopped them and I was able to hold my own.

A few years back, I was invited to participate in “The Black Round Table Discussions”.  I was honored.  But the very first week a lady took one look at me and said “What is she doing here?  She does not belong here.”  She was informed that I was an invited friend.  She stormed off and never returned.  Unfortunately there was yet another incident when my friend Ted Hayes and I were walking down Crenshaw Blvd. together.  A store owner and a couple employees who were sitting outside their music business sternly declared, “You cannot come into the store”.  We had no intentions of entering their business, but both of us were curious why such a declaration was made.  The owner quipped back, “Because no honky is allowed.”  Stunned, I replied, “So you are a racist?.”  He retorted with an enthusiastic, “YES”.  (Well at least he was honest.)

At some point in one’s life, they will experience hate whether it be due to skin color, gender, faith, viewpoints, nationality, etc…Absolutely no one is immune.  However the Good News is one day “All will profess He is Lord” – all will love!  All will realize we are ALL brothers and sisters of the SAME family under God! God is truth, love, and unity!

Rocker Alice Cooper recently concluded in an interview “The world belongs to Satan”.  Clearly we are seeing signs of this being true.  For those readers who are ‘believers”, it is time to pray for truth, awareness, love, and unity in our world.  For those who do not share our faith, it is time to stop listening to propaganda and share the truth, which the ‘state’ opposes, instead.

Philip II, King of Macedon, is often credited for the statement, “Divide and conquer.”.  Albert Pike, the Communist movement, the “state’, and Satan all share this same agenda.  Thus, “we the people” must unite in TRUTH!  Martin Luther King, Jr. shared “his dream’ and today we must carry out the dream of love, equality, forgiveness, and oneness!

Perhaps it is disappointing to many that none of the SELMA actors were nominated for an Oscar this year, however this is no “state of emergency” as far more concerns are of pressing matter like terrorism, economy, poverty, and child abuse. We as united people should concentrate on these more pressing issues instead of focusing on lies and distortions.

Nativity

Visions of a Not-So-Silent Christmas

Moving heavy furniture and boxes (see blog below) begs one to take a break!  With a tube of Tiger Balm, a reclining chair, and a television remote the one hour break commenced.  Channel surfing discovered a one-hour documentary on PBS titled “The First Silent Night” telling the origins of one of the most enduring Christmas hymns of all time – “Silent Night”.

http://thefirstsilentnight.com/

The German carol’s lyrics were written by Father Joseph Mohr in 1816 and then two years later the music was composed for “Stille Nacht” by schoolmaster Franz Xaver Gruber in the Salzburg, Austria region.  The film mesmerized with history, emotion, faith, and the beauty of Austria which helped diminish any muscle pain!

The one hour program connected with my faith, love for Jesus and adoration of my favorite Christmas song that it immediately motivated me to set a one year goal of visiting Salzburg for Christmas 2015!  In fact, I have the entire itinerary already planned which includes a few days in Wagrain, day trips to Hallein, Vienna, Munich (Germany) and Bolzano (Italy) with several days in Salzburg for all the Noel Festivities!

Visions of a 20 hour flight with children, transportation hassles, bustling crowds, and freezing-below- zero temperatures does not dampen my motivation to achieve this vacation dream!  In fact I can already taste the mulled wine and roasted chestnuts with the scent of fresh pine trees in the air!  No more “Dreaming” of a White Christmas, because the blanket of pure, white crystal snow will be all around requiring a cup of warm-spiced-nog at the end of a cold, but joyous day!

Although it is still yet Christmas Day, the image of Christmas in Europe next year dances in my head – authentic Tafelspitz, Schnitzel, sweet Apfelstrudel, warm Jägertee, bright artisan Christmas ornaments, festive music, the grand Cathedral, local Advent activities, and even the visit by the Krampusses and Perchten beckons vividly!

However with just one year to reach the goal, this means focus and dedication to earn the funds required for such a jubilant holiday.  Now it makes perfect sense why God lead me to WakeUpNow!  It will take earning 5-6 figures per month to establish the healthy finances needed to even begin planning the trip.  Once the appropriate amount of income is earned, then I can book the entire merry sabbatical utilizing the WUN Vacation Club!  Plus I can use WUN Speak to learn German and refresh my Italian, because when in Rome – or this case Salzburg – speak the local language.

The past 7 years has literally been one of the most financially challenging.  In addition, the political involvement and watching the removal of “Christ” from America has dampened my spirit to some degree.  However “The First Silent Night” reminded me that God is always in control no matter how bleak the circumstances may appear.  Plus for the first time in years, I am motivated by a dream – a dream which began with faith and adoration of a hymn which stirs love and peace everywhere!

Perhaps Salzburg is not the location of Christ’s birth, however it is the location of the ‘birth’ of a moving Christmas song describing the most holy night of the year!  And the origins of the lyrics and musical composition inspire faith and enhance the beauty of the region.

Now back to reality and my still sore muscles!!  Merry Christmas!

Amidst the Clutter, Peace!

A long, chaotic few days and now a cluttered house – boxes and excess furniture everywhere.  One would think I just moved in – or worse that a housekeeper needs to be hired and quick!  (Well hired help would be nice right about now – where is that Calgon?)  However in the midst of the clutter and chaos, there is peace of the spirit – a man is now not homeless!!  (See “Reality or Illusion” blog below.)

In the background the sweet sounds of the Christmas Jubilee is filling the home renewing the spirit of the weary.  Many are broken in the world, lost in all the confusion, but the Good News is there is REAL hope!!  Real GRACE!!  Real LOVE!!

The Christmas season should be a reminder for those who BELIEVE to help those in need.  Do you know family, friends, or neighbors how are hurting?  Perhaps they lost a loved one?  Lost their job?  Lost their home?  Maybe they are suffering from depression or addiction.

Someone within your family or community is indeed hurting and the Christmas season creates even deeper pain for many.  We are called to be the “light and salt” in this world.  Bring cheer to someone who needs it and pray with them to bring this love and hope this season!!
