WHY THERE CAN BE NO COEXISTENCE WITH THE LEFT

Exclusive: Erik Rush advises liberty-lovers to adopt same goal as their adversaries

Assuming they can take a break from bitterly clinging to their guns and religion for a few minutes, I’m going to set a bona fide goal for those liberty-loving Americans out there with a passion for our founding principles and the Constitution. What may surprise some in that camp is that it’s the very same goal toward which those on the political left strive.

At first blush, some of these patriots – perhaps many – will find this goal rhetorically indelicate, if not undemocratic, or even (dare I say it?) – “extreme.”

By the time they’re done reading this, however, I would hope that they perceive the dangerous folly in such thinking.

The goal is simple, and it is as follows: We must utterly vanquish the political opponents we currently face. One can see why I said it’s identical to the ultimate goal of the left, and why they never articulate it openly. While they espouse love of country, liberty, the democratic process and say they believe we have as much of a right to our ideals and beliefs as they do theirs, these are patent deceptions.

Time and again, their actions make it abundantly clear that they intend to eradicate our ideals and beliefs if at all possible.

So, as contrary to our model of government and collective conscience as this may sound, utterly neutralizing the left (completely disenfranchising those who ascribe to leftist doctrine and dismantling all of their established political, cultural and legal constructs) is an imperative because they never had any intention of coexisting with those of differing ideologies.

A key difference between us and the political left is that we’ve always been here, but they have not. What I mean by this is that throughout the history of our nation, the intentions of the governed and those who rose to govern were fairly closely aligned. There were instances of major divergence – such as those who wound up at odds over slavery or the right of women to vote – but principally, we had somewhat differing means to generally the same ends.

Though the left-right paradigm with which contemporary Americans were raised has come to mean less and less (because so many politicians advance leftist policies regardless of political party), we do need to bear in mind that it is a very recent political model.

The reason politicians have perpetuated the observance of this left-right archetype in recent years is because it became eminently useful to them in manipulating the electorate – and this means big-government closet socialists like many prominent Republicans have demonstrated themselves to be, as well as outright communists like Barack Obama and his co-conspirators.

The core truth is that the ideology, motives and methods of the left are manifestly evil, and always have been.

I don’t know if I coined the phrase in relation to liberalism being “communism on the installment plan,” but I don’t know of anyone else who uses it. Whoever gets the credit, I believe it is an accurate statement because not only has liberalism itself changed incrementally over the last several decades, it has also managed to subvert those occupying other nodes along the political continuum.

This is because liberalism (as opposed to early 20th-century progressivism) has always been driven by hardcore communists. Because they are intrinsically diabolical, they misrepresent their intentions, then foment division, hatred and civil unrest. Finally, they institutionalize injustice, oppressing and terrorizing the governed, illegally appropriating the fruits of their labors and making atrocity commonplace.

This is why in 1983, President Ronald Reagan referred to the Soviet Union as an “evil empire.” It wasn’t a case of baseless name-calling.

With the end of the Cold War, many Americans presumed that the struggle against communism was over. I’m not sure why, since potent communistic influences remained in the world. In any event, I seriously doubt that in the early 1990s many conservatives could have imagined a Marxist-Leninist cabal calling the shots in our nation’s capital less than 20 years hence.

The empirical evidence demonstrates that liberalism inevitably morphs into communism (oligarchical collectivist totalitarianism). Whether it comes about quickly through revolution or slowly through attrition doesn’t matter much in the end.

Thus, liberalism is fundamentally just as malignant as communism – which we should have been able to ascertain, given that its effects over the last 50 years included increasing moral ambivalence, escalating levels of corruption in government and business sectors, class warfare, dissolution of the family (including high rates of divorce and illegitimate births), loss of reverence for the sanctity of life, rampant drug use, antipathy for the nation itself and transposition of the very concepts of good and evil.

And those only represent the evidence of America’s domestic deterioration.

I hope this has sufficiently illustrated that the liberal-embryonic-communist wholesale destroyers of everything good and decent have not always been among us. Those who follow evil dictates have always been among us, but never before in America have we seen a faction bent on pernicious societal nihilism achieve enduring influence and political power.

Those who are generally peaceful, industrious and generous, who would prefer to mind their own business as they pursue life, liberty and happiness have always been here. Actually, they are most people. Knowledge of this truth is what motivated our nation’s founders to so inextricably enshrine the concepts of individual liberty and Natural Law into its founding documents.

The Greatest Threat to America


Written by: Gary Wonning

The biggest concern among thinking Americans today is the threat of terrorism, more  especially home grown terrorism.

While terrorism  is a major threat to our safety and wellbeing there is another threat even more dangerous.

We have become our own worst enemy. Our freedom and prosperity has created an environment  that promotes our own demise.

In our rush to create a society with many luxuries of life we have forgotten what is important .

While our technical  advances are unequaled in history, we have neglected our spiritual  foundation.

We are our own homegrown terrorists. We resort to drugs and alcohol so we don’t have to face up to who we are or the truth of our existence. Some statistics state 75% of the American population is on painkillers, and

People over 75 average being on at least 5 prescription drugs. This is alarming! Instead of relying on our inner guidance and natural healing when  did we begin to want quick cures that many times create more illnesses than they could ever cure?

Often times a little exercise and proper diet would alleviate an health issues we may have.

Instead of working on core issues and getting to the heart of the issue, we often pop a pill or illegal drug and think that will solve our problems . This only makes the problem worse, now, not only did we not solve the initial issue, we have become addicted to drugs and or alcohol.

Somewhere and somehow we have forgotten what is important in life.

I remember growing up, God and church was the foundation of our life. Everything centered around our religious values. People then, like now weren’t perfect, but they tried to live by a code of ethics instilled by their ancestors. Even the most ruthless individuals had a line they wouldn’t cross, even to them some behavior just wasn’t acceptable.

There was honor among thieves, now there is honor among no one, the only thing that matters is instant gratification and a feel good result.

Growing up there were very few people who didn’t go to church at least occasionally, now most don’t go and in many areas churches are closing.

Most no longer have anything to believe in, they have placed their trust in an unstable foundation, either fame, fortune, or drugs. When that foundation finally collapses and it will, there is no rock for them to lean on.

People are floundering aimlessly in life, worshiping one false prophet after another. Instead of going within for answers, they are seeking something outside themselves for gratification.

In this environment, can we wonder why our society has tumbled in decay like it has? Can we wonder why the Islamic faith is growing? For right or wrong,they haven’t abandoned their God, we have abandoned ours.

If and when we once again discover our true values and spiritual foundation, the threat of terrorism will be no more.

Prophecy: Key to the Future


Art Prints

Interesting article I found.

The next series of prophecies come from the Mormons. They don’t bode well for the future of our country. Many of the Mormon leaders made a series of prophecies regarding the fate of the United States and the world, in general. I will try and keep it brief, but there is a LOT of information that needs to be presented.

In 1844, Joseph Smith was purported to have made the following prophecy:

“There will be two great political parties in this country. One will be called the Republican, and the other the Democrat party. These two parties will go to war and out of these two parties will spring another party which will be the Independent American Party. The United States will spend her strength ,and means warring in foreign lands until other nations will say, “Let’s divide up the lands of the United States”, then the people of the U. S. will unite and swear by the blood of their fore-fathers, that the land shall not be divided. Then the country will go to war, and they will fight until one half of the [U. S. army will give up, and the rest will continue to struggle. They will keep on until they are very ragged and discouraged, and almost ready to give up—when the boys from the mountains will rush forth in time to save the American Army from defeat and ruin. And they will say, ‘Brethren, we are glad you have come; give us men, henceforth, who can talk with God’. Then you will have friends, but you will save the country when it’s [sic] liberty hangs by a hair, as it were.”

3e8d7-lightforthepath

He also stated that “there is a land beyond the Rocky Mountains that will be invaded by the heathen Chinese unless great care and protection are given.” (Prophecy: Key to the Future, Crowther, 1962)

This prophecy is interesting for several reasons. The Republican Party was not formally organized until 1854. There is no question that, ideologically, the Democrats and Republicans are at war. Neither party truly represents their constituents. Because of this the American Independent Party was formed in 1967. Its web site stated that this was because “…the leaders of the two existing parties…have deserted the principles and traditions of our nation’s founding fathers.”

Ever since WWII, the U.S. has been in dozens of wars and police actions. Since the end of WWII, there have been more than 100 types of police actions, including notable ones like Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Persian Gulf, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. If this isn’t spending our strength and means warring in foreign lands, I don’t know what is.

Anyone who has kept abreast of current events knows what China is doing. They are actively working to crash the dollar and becoming more and more militarized. Recently, a Chinese navy vessel tried to force a U.S. missile cruiser to stop in international waters and a general from the PLA threatened to nuke the U.S.

In 1960, Ezra Taft Benson, 13th president of the Mormon Church and Secretary of Agriculture under Eisenhower, also voiced warning against “socialistic communism” and specifically against the Chinese communists. He said that “there is little doubt that the leaders of Red China view war as inevitable and await only the propitious moment in which to strike.”

Would the Chinese invade the west coast if the opportunity presented itself? Obama is doing his level best to gut the military and bring in socialism. He’s doing everything he can to turn this country into a welfare society by following the Cloward-Piven strategy. Without question, our economy will collapse and riots will ensue when welfare recipients can’t use their EBT cards. What do you think the Chinese will think when they see this happening? What do you think the Russians will do?

Another thing to point out regarding Smith’s prophecy was the part about the army asking that men be sent to them, men “who can talk to God.” When you look at what the Dear Leader is doing to our military, you can see why this was stated. Obama is systematically purging the military of Christians – men who can talk to God. Any officer or NCO who doesn’t go along with Obama’s agenda is either being retired and/or persecuted under bogus, trumped up charges and driven from the military. Evangelical Christians have been specifically named by DHS and the military as potential terrorists.

Smith also stated in this and other prophecies that the U.S. Constitution would hang by a thread. With “progressives,” i.e., socialists/communists in power, there has been a systematic attack upon the Constitution. They are perverting, distorting and outright ignoring both the letter of the Constitution and its intent.

Obama is trying to have freedom of speech limited by the “Shield Law” introduced in the Senate. This law will specifically state who is considered a journalist and would exclude the alternative media. Freedom of religion is also under attack through Obamacare and forcing business owners to serve homosexuals against their conscience. One wedding cake baker is being threatened with a 12-month jail term if he refuses a court order to make a wedding cake for two homosexuals.

The 2nd Amendment is under attack in spite of the intent of the framers of the Constitution. This also is in spite of statistics that show that those states with the strictest gun laws have the highest violent crime. However, the 2nd Amendment, while it is for personal self-defence, was primarily intended to fight tyranny by the government. The Dear Leader knows this, but, again, in spite of him being a “constitutional scholar,” he ignores reality. The right against self-incrimination and right to unlawful search and seizure have been gutted by the Supremes.

I’d say that our Constitution is hanging by a thread.

From another early Mormon leader, Orson Pratt, is a prophecy regarding a second civil war that will be unlike other civil wars. This war would not be with two distinct factions fighting against each other. It would be a number of what appears to be mob actions, a series of civil wars.

“Do you wish me to describe it? I will do so. It will be a war of neighborhood against neighborhood, city against city, town against town, county against county, state against state, and they will go forth destroying and being destroyed and manufacturing will, in a great measure, cease, for a time, among the American nation. Why? Because in these terrible wars, they will not be privileged to manufacture, there will be too much bloodshed—too much mobocracy—too much going forth in bands and destroying and pillaging the land to suffer people to pursue any local vocation with any degree of safety. What will become of millions of the farmers upon that land? They will leave their farms and they will remain uncultivated, and they will flee before the ravaging armies from place to place; and thus will they go forth burning and pillaging the whole country.” (Journal of Discourses 20:151)

“The time will come when there will be no safety in carrying on the peaceable pursuits of farming or agriculture. But these will be neglected, and the people will think themselves well off if they can flee from city to city, from town to town and escape with their lives.” (Journal of Discourses 12:344)

What do you think will happen when the government is unable to continue its welfare subsidies? What happens when the stock market crashes? The Cloward-Piven strategy that is being followed by the Dear Leader is designed to crash the government as we know it. Unfortunately, I think it’s going to do more than just crash it as we know it with consequences these liberals can never foresee.

This was also foretold and reiterated by other Mormon leaders in the following statements:

“I have seen the end of this nation and it is terrible. I will tell you in the name of the Lord that a secret band will sap the life of this nation.” (Moses Thatcher, 1882)

“And do not think that these usurpations, intimidations, and impositions are being done to us through inadvertence or mistake; The whole course is deliberately planned and carried out; its purpose is to destroy the Constitution and our constitutional government; then to bring chaos, out of which the new Statism with its slavery is to arise, with a cruel, relentless, selfish, ambitious crew in the saddle, riding hard with whip and spur, a red-shrouded band of night riders for despotism.” (J. Reuben Clark, Jr., 1949)

“Concerning the United States, the Lord revealed to his prophets that its greatest threat would be a vast, worldwide ‘secret combination’ (conspiracy) which would not only threaten the United States but also seek to ‘overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations…’” (Ezra Taft Benson, 1961)

“The time will come when the banks in every nation will fail and only two places will be safe where people can deposit their gold and treasures…. A terrible revolution will take place in the land of America, such as has never been seen before; for the land will be literally left without a supreme government. And every species of wickedness will run rampant. Father will be against son, and son against father, mother against daughter, and daughter against mother. The most terrible scenes of murder and bloodshed and rapine that have ever been looked upon will take place. Peace will be taken from the earth and there will be no peace only in the Rocky Mountains. This will cause many hundreds and thousands of the honest in heart to gather there; not because they would be saints (Mormons) but for safety and because they would not take up the sword against their neighbor.” (Joseph Smith, 1843)

“It seemed though I was above the earth, and look­ing down upon it. As I passed along upon my way east I saw the road full of people, mostly women, with just what they could carry in bundles on their backs, trav­eling to the moun­tains on foot. I won­dered how they would get through with such a small pack on their backs. It was re­markable to us[?] that there were so few men among them. It didn’t seem to me as though the cars were run­ning, the rails looked rusty and the roads aban­doned; and I have no con­ception of how I traveled as I looked down upon the peo­ple.” (John Taylor, 1877)

The Mormons have consistently warned against a secret conspiracy that would take hold in the latter days. This conspiracy would threaten, not only the freedom of the United States, but, eventually the entire world. These predictions began surfacing in the 1830’s and have continued to this day. Socialism/communism has generally been identified as the perceived threat. All you need to do is look to the progressives in the government, the news outlets and Hollywood to see that this is true.

About the only positive thing about these prophecies is that they are ended by another prophecy that the good people who flock to the mountains will preserve the Constitution as it was originally intended. Not by how a bunch of progressives wish to twist it. It won’t be just by the Mormons, but all those good people. They will re-establish a government as was originally intended by the Founding Fathers. All of this is to immediately precede the Second Coming.

There are a lot more of these prophecies, but it’s interesting that so much of what was written is coming true or is poised to come true. Much of what I’ve researched comes from the book, “Prophecy: Key to the Future” by Duane Crowther. All anyone needs to do is simply pay attention to current events. What is happening to our country and the world is so obvious…to anyone but a liberal.

It’s Not about the Cake or Pizza


Photography Prints
I’m sure we are all aware of the uproar created because a bakery refused to  bake a wedding cake or a pizza for a gay wedding because of religious convictions. First off, who has pizza at their wedding? But that is a whole different story.

It’s not about bigotry or being racist. It’s about religious freedom, our first amendment. Our Bill of Rights guarantees we won’t be discriminated against for exercising our freedom of speech or freedom of religion.

There is no correlation between refusing to cater to a gay wedding and being a bigot. You can still love and respect people without agreeing to everything they believe,say or do. It’s done all the time.

It’s called loving the person, but not always loving what they say, do or believe. We each have different values and they should be respected, regardless if we believe the same  or not.  For the gay community to not respect a person of faith’s values can also be interpreted as being bigoted and narrow-minded.

I’m not sure about the others, but the case in northern Indiana was a set-up. A news reporter asked several bakeries a question about catering to a gay wedding. She finally found the answer she wanted, and tried to further her career by taking advantage of someone’s personal values.

It was a hypothetical question, there was no gay couple that came in and asked for them to cater a gay wedding.

Even if there was, and the bakery decided not to cater the wedding, that is within their constitutional right. We cannot be discriminated against because of our religious beliefs. It has nothing to do with bigotry or racism. Whether you agree with them or not, it is their religious right, guaranteed by the constitution.

It wouldn’t be any problem finding a baker, florist, or photographer to cater the wedding. A few hard core radical people are making it hard on everyone, most people who are gay are just like everyone else. They just want to live the life they choose and not make life more difficult for either themselves or anyone else.

Besides, would you want someone baking a wedding cake who doesn’t believe as you do, just to make a point? Somehow marriage is about more than making a political statement.

There are several videos circulating online where the same question was asked of a Muslim baker and others, no uproar.

It is definitely an attack on Christians and their beliefs.

There was a time when we could pray in school and nothing was said, the same for religious displays in public. All that has changed.

In this day and age profanity is protected by our constitution, but religious values and principles are not. Common sense as described in my latest book has gone completely out the window.

If you believe the popular consensus of the public is correct on this matter and religious values mean nothing, what are you going to do when they come after your ministers, priests, nuns, and other spiritual advisors? Are you going to sit and watch?

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.

 

 

Giving and Receiving


 

Found this somewhere

Our abilities to give and receive are at the core of our capacity to create and experience true prosperity.

We each receive certain gifts when we come into this life.  These gifts take the form of our special talents, interests, and attributes, as well as our universal human characteristics, such as our ability to love and care for one another.

When we do our best to live our truth and express ourselves as authentically as possible, sharing ourselves as we are genuinely moved to, we naturally give our gifts to others and to the world.

In return, we may receive acknowledgement, appreciation, validation, nurturing, love, and in certain circumstances, money or other material rewards.  Receiving in these ways allows us to replenish the life force we have “spent,” which in turn enables us to continue giving.

So receiving and giving are opposite energies that are inextricably linked together in the natural flow of life, like inhaling and exhaling.  If one aspect of that cycle doesn’t function, the entire cycle ceases to function and the life force cannot move freely.  If you can’t inhale, you will soon have nothing to exhale, and before long, your body will be unable to continue living.

This might seem fairly simple and obvious, yet we have enormous confusion in this area.  Many of us have difficulty with giving, receiving, or both.

In my observation, the more common problem is the inability to truly receive.  There are a number of reasons why receiving is difficult for so many of us.  Certainly, one factor is cultural conditioning.  Giving is generally viewed as honorable and praiseworthy.  Receiving, or taking, seems perilously close to selfishness, which has a lot of negative connotations for most of us.

Militarizing the Local Police (Part 2)


Written by; Gary Wonning

The riots in Missouri bring back many memories of such events in the past, the riots of the 60s,from which Detroit has never recovered, The Rodney King incident, and like several others, the full story was never told.

The O.J.Simpson trial, where riots broke out in Los Angeles, which would have been a lot worse had he been convicted. Even the  Trayvon Martin incident could have gotten a lot worse in short period of time.

There have been several such events in the recent past that has brought major destruction to the property of law abiding citizens.

I don’t think anyone wants to see their cities and homes burned to the ground, these types of incidents have to be controlled very quickly. We saw what happened in Ferguson, in many cases it was more about looting and robbing than it was about someone’s civil rights, or race.

Most people, and the press jumped to conclusions. The press and certain  so called civil rights leaders actually threw gasoline on an already explosive situation, having only their own selfish agenda in mind.

Our civil rights are important and protecting the Bill of Rights is of the utmost importance.

Having said that, we don’t live in the era of Barney Fife anymore. The world has changed. There is a real imminent threat to our way of life, our liberties, and our security like never before.

Technology has made it possible for almost anyone to create a weapon of mass destruction. Because of the actions of our own federal government, we have thousands flooding across our southern border daily that threaten our security and our way of life.

I don’t want to be an alarmist,but our country probably has hundreds, if not thousands of terrorists living within our borders. They are walking amongst us , many supposedly leading so-called normal lives.

We face threats on many levels, we will be attacked again, it is just a matter of time. When we are, it will be up to the local authorities to control the situation until, and if help arrives. There may come a day when we are glad our local police forces are armed as they are.

If things get really ugly, the federal government won’t be able to handle it, it will need to be taken care of on a local level.

Our second amendment rights need to be preserved, that is a major necessity, but we may need more firepower than the citizenry can provide, plus the local police force can gather much needed information and coordinate it, something the local citizenry cannot do.

Thankfully, most law enforcement officers have their heart in the right place and are dedicated to their mission.

There are always some bad apples in the barrel. The best way to ensure we have dedicated people in our local law enforcement is to hire the best people , regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation,etc. It is time to stop hiring people to fill some quota, and fire and prosecute them if they overreach.

Like everyone else, I am concerned about the military build up of our local police forces, but I am equally concerned about the dangers facing our nation and our ability to face them. Our local police force may be our first line of defense.

America is in serious trouble, many no longer realize what values and principles our country is founded on and have strayed from the common sense and creative thinking of our ancestors, how can we fix it?

The Islamic Terrorist Threat


Written by: The Bashful Country Boy

In today’s world the greatest threat to peace we have is Islamic terrorism.

Their murderous armies are spreading world wide, even to the United States , where many have come legally, but many more have entered through the porous U.S. /Mexican border.

Many see no problem with the number of illegals who have gained access to our country, and many welcome it as a humanitarian project. Many compare it to a time when people came here from Europe for a better life and see it as a way of offering many the opportunities we all enjoy as Americans.

However, there is a huge difference between immigrants from the past and those of today. In the past, most came for a chance to improve their lives and create an environment that contributed to the American way of life which offered life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

In today’s environment , that is not always the case.

Many now come to live off our system, thinking they are entitled to our privileges without contributing to it. They have forgotten that with rights come responsibilities.

And sadly, many come to destroy our way of life in order to spread a religion of hate. This wave of  hate is mainly , but not always, coming from the Islamic world.

Are all Muslims hateful? Of course not. It has been estimated that about ten percent of all Muslims are extremists. Even if that figure is correct, that ten percent can out number the total population of the United States, and it only takes a few from that ten percent to create havoc on a world wide level.

It is this ten percent that is given the Islamic world a bad name. How can this be reversed and not only spare the world a future filled with terrorism, but create a better understanding of the Islamic way of life?

There is only one group of people who can do it, the Muslims themselves. They are the ones who have to stand up and be counted. Just like in the black community, they are the one’s who need to stop condoning bad behavior. They need to call out members of their own race about their unacceptable behavior. 

Bad behavior is bad behavior, it matters little what race, creed, or religion you happen to be. It is time to stop taking sides , if someone is not acting properly they need to be called out on it and appropriate action taken. 

No one can do it for the Muslim community, if someone of a different races criticizes them or makes a statement, they are only called racist and an insensitive bigot.

They need to police themselves. This is the only way the world attitude will change, these wars have been going on for thousands of years, do you really want them to continue?

We can all exist in the world community, and practice whatever religious or spiritual belief we have. We don’t need to conquer others and force them to belief as we do. 

Many times our own individual spiritual beliefs can change during a lifetime, who knows what you will believe tomorrow?

Let’s create a world where that is the norm.
