News of the Day

I’m bombarded daily by news. It starts in the morning with husband’s look at the weather, today’s and the week. Then world/national news and local shootings and traffic accidents with a house fire or two through the night.

There isn’t any good economic news. The nation is set to collapse. The world is set to collapse too. Governments seek to ‘fix’ everything. Though, it’s the people who can make a difference, not rulers, presidents, representatives.

But we’re drowning in laws, regulations. We’re working hard to keep our heads above water and care for our families. But prices on everything are going up and our retirement savings have been taken away by stock market drops. There’s no place to put anything saved. We lose our principle in every place we used to sock a little money.

I’m looking for a person to run for president who will tell me there is hope. Real hope. Hope for my country. Hope for my family. Hope for the world. After Mr. Cain suspended his campaign, I see no one that fits that bill.

So I’ll just lean on Jesus. And do what I can to take his Gospel to those in need. I don’t know what others do without Him. He’s the only sanity in my world. He’s the only one with Good News. ♡♡♡

Is. 40:9 You who tell good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain; you who tell good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength; lift it up, don’t be afraid; say to the cities of Judah, Behold, your God!

Are US Christians being persecuted? The answer might surprise you.

But listen to a Middle Eastern underground house church leader: “Persecution is easier to understand when it’s physical: torture, death, imprisonment….American persecution is like an advanced stage of cancer; it eats away at you, yet you cannot feel it. This is the worst kind of persecution.”

The Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto

http://laissez-fairerepublic.com/tenplanks.html

Read number 2.

The Ten Planks of the
Communist Manifesto
1848 by Karl Heinrich Marx
How “Marxist” Has
the United States
Become?
Although Marx advocated the use of any means, especially including violent revolution, to bring about socialist dictatorship, he suggested ten political goals for developed countries such as the United States. How far has the United States — traditionally the bastion of freedom, free markets, and private property — gone down the Marxist road to fulfill these socialist aims? You be the judge. The following are Marx’s ten planks from his Communist Manifesto.
1. Abolition of private property in land and application of all rents of land to public purpose.

The courts have interpreted the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868) to give the government far more “eminent domain” power than was originally intended, Under the rubric of “eminent domain” and various zoning regulations, land use regulations by the Bureau of Land Managementproperty taxes, and “environmental” excuses, private property rights have become very diluted and private property in landis, vehicles, and other forms are seized almost every day in this country under the “forfeiture” provisions of the RICO statutes and the so-called War on Drugs..

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

The 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913 (which some scholars maintain was never properly ratified), and various State income taxes, established this major Marxist coup in the United States many decades ago. These taxes continue to drain the lifeblood out of the American economy and greatly reduce the accumulation of desperately needed capital for future growth, business starts, job creation, and salary increases.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

Another Marxian attack on private property rights is in the form of Federal & State estate taxes and other inheritance taxes, which have abolished or at least greatly diluted the right of private property owners to determine the disposition and distribution of their estates upon their death. Instead, government bureaucrats get their greedy hands involved .

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

We call it government seizures, tax liens, “forfeiture” Public “law” 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of “terrorists” and those who speak out or write against the “government” (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

The Federal Reserve System, created by the Federal Reserve Act of Congress in 1913, is indeed such a “national bank” and it politically manipulates interest rates and holds a monopoly on legal counterfeiting in the United States. This is exactly what Marx had in mind and completely fulfills this plank, another major socialist objective. Yet, most Americans naively believe the U.S. of A. is far from a Marxist or socialist nation.

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the state.

In the U.S., communication and transportation are controlled and regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established by the Communications Act of 1934 and the Department of Transportation and the Interstate Commerce Commission (established by Congress in 1887), and the Federal Aviation Administration as well as Executive orders 11490, 10999 — not to mention various state bureaucracies and regulations. There is also the federal postal monopoly, AMTRAK and CONRAIL — outright socialist (government-owned) enterprises. Instead of free-market private enteprrise in these important industries, these fields in America are semi-cartelized through the government’s regulatory-industiral complex.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

While the U.S. does not have vast “collective farms” (which failed so miserably in the Soviet Union), we nevertheless do have a significant degree of government involvement in agriculture in the form of price support subsidies and acreage alotments and land-use controls. The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two “income” family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920’s, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000. And I almost forgot…The Equal Rights Amendment means that women should do all work that men do including the military and since passage it would make women subject to the draft.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

We call it the Planning Reorganization Act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public “law” 89-136.

10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

People are being taxed to support what we call ‘public’ schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based “Education” .

So, is the U.S. a “free country” today? Hardly! Not compared to what it once was. Yet, very few Americans today challenge these Marxist institutions, and there are virtually no politicians calling for their repeal or even gradual phase-out. While the United States of America may still have more freedoms than most other countries, we have nonetheless lost many crucial liberties and have accepted the major socialist attacks on freedom and private property as normal parts of our way of life. The nation, whose founders included such individualists as Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, James Madison, John Adams and Patrick Henry, has gradually turned away from the principles of individual rights, limited constitutional government, private property, and free markets and instead we increasingly have embraced the failed ideas and nostrums of socialism and fascism. We should hang our heads in shame for having allowed this to happen.

But, it is not too late to reverse these pernicious burdens and instead enact pro-freedom reforms to put our nation back on track again. It can be done.

In some ways the Left has a head start over us on the pro-freedom Right. The enemies of American freedom do admittedly dominate the entertainment industry, television news media, and academia — but we have the tremendous strategic advantage that reality (including man’s nature) is on our side; so, unlike the socialists and “liberals” (welfare-state fascists), we are not in the position of having to advocate a system which constantly tries to “make water to go uphill” — or force human beings into a rigid utopian staitjacket based on the whims of some clique of central planning bureaucrats. We know that individual freedom for peaceful people within a constitutional republic works in practice; our country’s history demonstrates that. The piecemeal abandonment of those principles and institutions which once made America great has proved to be a a dead-end road to failure. That is why I tend to be a long-term optimist even though things often look pretty glum in the meantime. Just as Prohibition was eventually repealed, I feel encouraged that such key statist achievements as the income tax, government schools, fiat money/central banking (the Federal Reserve), “environmentalist” regulations, property forfeiture laws, and other Marxist planks and leftist institutions can be rolled back and repealed altogether, although it may take several decades.

Those who would carry forward the ideas and principles of self-ownership, private property, free markets, laissez faire, the rule of law, and constitutionalism which informed America’s founders must become more active on the key ideological battle fronts. We need more influence not just in politics, but in areas of entertainment, academia, journalism, think tanks, churches (we need our own individualist Walter Rauschenbushes), literature, art, and other venues of expression and activism.

Marxism and socialism have proved to be colossal failures all over the world. As Frederic Bastiat wrote in his classic The Law just prior to his death, “let us now try liberty”!

Organ Harvesting the Unconscious by Wesley J. Smith-National Review

Organ Harvesting the Unconscious

by WESLEY J. SMITH September 6, 2016 4:18 PM

This isn’t happening here–yet. But many in organ transplant medicine and bioethics want permission to kill the profoundly cognitively disabled for their organs, either by lethal injection and then harvesting, or by the process itself.

The latest example was published in the Journal of Medical Ethics. From the article by bioethicist Zoe Fritz:

Where it is inevitable that an incapacitous patient is going to die—and specifically when it has been agreed through the courts that a patient in a PVS is going to have CANH [tube-supplied sustenance] withdrawn, it could be in a patient’s best interests to have a drug that would stop their heart and to have vital organs donated to a family member, acting as a means to the end of saving another, much as the mother would be doing in running out on the road to save her son.

By extension, it could also be in the patients best interests to donate their organs to someone else, if that was consistent with their previously expressed wishes. (3) The current practice of withdrawing CANH from patients in PVS or minimally conscious state—with the inevitable consequence of death—is ethically inferior to actively ending life with a drug that would stop the heart.

The ‘act’ rather than the omission would allow families to be present at the death of their loved one and obviate the potential for the physiological signs seen with starvation and dehydration; it would negate the (although tiny) possibility that the individual suffers during withdrawal of CANH, rather than addressing this with sedation and analgesia as is currently the case.

And it would allow those who had previously expressed a desire to donate their organs to do so allowing their altruistic desires to be respected as part of a wider interpretation of best interests.

I can think of no faster way to destroy the people’s confidence in organ donation than to kill for organs.

Not only that, but if this were permitted, decisions about withdrawing care would quickly become intertwined with the issue of harvesting, transforming patients into so many organ farms.

As I wrote above, this isn’t fringe thinking but of a kind being proposed continually in the world’s major professional journals.

I also hasten to repeat that killing for organs as proposed in this article isn’t happening in organ transplant centers at this time–except in Belgium and Netherlands that have coupled lethal injection euthanasia of the disabled and mentally ill with organ harvesting.

Light is the best disinfectant. The best way to make sure that killing and harvesting never spreads generally to the USA and other countries is to expose these pernicious ideas every time they are proposed in prominent professional journals.

PVS: persistent vegetative state

CANH: clinically assisted nutrition and hydration

When medicine began organ harvesting the very word ‘harvesting’ gave me chills and the hair on my skin stood straight up. I decided long ago I would not be an organ donor. I have seen the process for pronouncing a person ‘brain dead’ and have seen ‘persistent vegetative state’ patients recover.

Never underestimate the evil intent for gain that any humans are willing to do.

Pay attention. Know what is going on in ‘health care’. Maybe you don’t need all this ‘health care’?

I used to think I was just a regular guy. (or gal)

*I used to think I was just a regular guy, but…

*I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist. *

*I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist. *

*I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe. *

*I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business. *

*I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.*

*I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.*

*I am older than 70 and retired, which makes me a useless old man. *

*I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary. *

*I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.*

*I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.*

*I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.*

*I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.*

*I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happen to me so quickly! Funny…it has all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!*

*As if all this wasn’t enough to deal with…I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!*

The woman who wants to be president

So your parents always told you to vote” D ” because of FDR . I ask how can you vote for a corrupt Liar ? Her actual words:

1) “Where is the God damn flag? I want the God damn ****ing flag up
every morning at ****ing sunrise”. Hillary to staff at the Arkansas
Governor’s mansion on Labor Day 1991. From the book “Inside the White
House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 244

(2) “**** off! It’s enough I have to see you ****-kickers every day!
I’m not going to talk to you, too! Just do your Goddamn job and keep
your mouth shut.” Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of
them greeted her with “Good Morning.” From the book “America Evita” by
Christopher Anderson, p.90

(3) “If you want to remain on this detail, get your ****ing ass over
here and grab those bags!” Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was
reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free
in case of an incident. From the book “The First Partner” p. 25

(4) “Stay the **** back, stay the **** back away from me! Don’t come
within ten yards of me, or else! Just ****ing do as I say, Okay!!?”
Hillary screaming at her Secret Service detail. From the book “Unlimited
Access” by Clinton ‘s FBI Agent-in-Charge, Gary Aldridge, p.139

(5) “Where’s the miserable cock sucker?” (otherwise known as “Bill
Clinton”) Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer. From the book
“The Truth about Hillary” by Edward Klein, p. 5

(6) “You ****ing idiot” Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her
to an event. From the book “Crossfire” ~pg. 84

(7) “Put this on the ground! I left my sunglasses in the limo. I need
those ****ing sunglasses! We need to go back!†Hillary to Marine One
helicopter pilot to turn back while in route to Air Force One. From the
book ” Dereliction of Duty” p. 71-72

(8) “Come on Bill, put your dick up! You can’t **** her here!!” Hillary
to Gov. Bill Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive
female. From the book “Inside the White House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 243

There it is ……..book, chapter and page…….the real Hillary
Rotten Clinton!

Additionally, when she walked around the White House, NO ONE was
permitted to look her in the eye, they all had to lower their heads with
their eyes towards the ground whenever she walked by. Clearly she is a
class act!

This ill-tempered, violent, loud-mouth, hateful and abusive woman wants
to be your next President, and have total control as Commander-in-Chief
of our Military, the very Military for which she has shown incredible
disdain throughout her public life .

Remember her most vile comment about Benghazi: “What difference at this
point does it make?”

Now it will be clear why the crew of “Marine One” helicopter nick-named
the craft, “Broomstick ONE “
