Don’t sell out, don’t sit down, and don’t shut up

by Sara J.

Tea Party: a little over a year ago, you had the establishment freaking out. You were taking hits from every mainstream media outlet on both sides of the aisle, but it didn’t slow you down. You took out GOP establishment incumbents one by one in primaries, and you didn’t stop there: you went on to take back the House by a landslide; in fact, if was one of the biggest wins in American history.

With all that under your belt, I’m trying to figure why the Tea Party has decided to throw in the towel. Is that really all you’ve got? What ever happened to perseverance? Do progressives really have that much more endurance than you? Don’t you remember how it felt not just to beat the left, not just to beat the establishment on the right, but to get real leaders of character in office? I thought you were the group of Americans with values and principles? I thought is was your conviction that man’s rights are given to him by God, not government. I guess I was wrong. The Constitution, limited government, and real freedom must have just seemed like a good idea, because you don’t just lower the bar on convictions. The Tea Party didn’t choose from the options passed down by the establishment in November 2010. You went out, found real leaders, and won. In fact you got the most epic gloat fest of all time, when it was all said and done.

This election should be one where the Tea Party takes everything the mainstream media says and tosses it out the window. Unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening. We’ve been thrown into this ridiculous argument of who is and isn’t “electable.” After everything that has happened in the last three years: the Healthcare law, finance reform, countless DOJ scandals, establishment GOP ganging up on the Tea Party, you’re going to buy into the mainstream media’s argument of whom the best candidates are? Are we ever going to find a perfect candidate? No. Can we find one that shares our core values? Yes.

For conservatives, this entire election has been positioned around the repeal of Obamacare. How is it that the two highest polling candidates are Newt Gingrich, who supports an individual mandate, or did for 20+ years until it became unpopular, and Mitt Romney, who implemented government run healthcare in his own state while he was the governor? How has one of these candidates lifted to the top of the polls for grassroots conservatives? Is the Tea Party really buying into the establishment’s argument about who is the most “electable?” And are these candidates actually the most electable? How are their policies going to fly in a debate against Barack Obama?

Moderator: Mr. President, you implemented an individual mandate in your healthcare plan that is now being challenge by the Supreme Court. Is or isn’t an individual mandate for healthcare reform constitutional?

Barack Obama: I don’t know, I got the idea from Newt Gingrich, then we designed the rest of the bill around Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts healthcare plan.

I’m sure that will appeal to the voters that are on the fence… What could a moderator throw at a candidate like Michele Bachmann or Rick Santorum in a debate that would hurt them—traditional marriage, their faith, no instances of adultery, “MSNBC says your crazy”? Oh the horror of a clean record! If we are going to have a discussion about who is and isn’t electable in an election, can we at least look at the big picture?

If I remember correctly, Senator John McCain was a “moderate” conservative in the last election. We were sold this same argument about who could and could not win the election on a national scale. That worked out really well didn’t it? John McCain didn’t rise in the polls until an unknown conservative, Governor Sarah Palin, entered the race. And despite the disgusting attacks on her from the media, she is still the number one choice for many of you. How do you go from supporting Sarah Palin to Newt Gingrich, a guy who has been saying FDR is the greatest president of the 19th century for years and says Andy Stern is a “forward looking leader”?

This week, a friend of mine told me that in order to get independents and moderates to vote against Obama, we have to choose one of the more moderate candidates. I completely reject this argument. If you want to change someone’s mind, if you want to provide a better option for Americans that are on the fence and feel disenfranchised by both parties, give them a candidate who actually believes in what they’re running for. Give them a candidate that they may not agree with on all of the issues, but still respects for walking their talk. We want a choice this election—hot or cold, up or down, left or right, conservative or liberal. In 2008 we had a Republican candidate that was pro-choice, for gun control, and wasn’t going to protect our border. We now have a Democrat president that is pro-choice, for gun control and still doesn’t protect our border. Why are we repeating these mistakes? Or, do you actually believe in the progressive policies of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney?

Tea Party, don’t sell out, don’t sit down, and don’t shut up. You fought hard for candidates like Michele Bachmann last November. She was Nancy Pelosi’s number one target in the last election, and she won. Why are you giving up on her and other candidates who want to restore the founding values and principals of America? Because the media tells you it’s the only way to win? Since when do members of the mainstream media know what winning looks like? They have to lie, cheat, and cover up the truth to get the candidates they want elected into office. Newsflash: the media is losing. Please remember how shocked they all were last November when Tea Party candidates were knocking off Republicans and Democrats one by one.

A true conservative with moral authority over their own life will be the final blow to the agenda of the mainstream media and a huge loss of power to the establishment in Washington D.C. Kill two birds with one stone, and stand up for what you believe in this election. If you don’t stand by your convictions regardless of the outcome, then it is a waste of time to have them in the first place. Don’t throw the last three years of organizing, fund raising, meetings, and withstanding attacks from all sides away. You can beat the establishment, but first you have to support a candidate that represents your values. You aren’t stuck with a progressive Republican yet, so stop acting like you are. This is why we have primary elections. Now stand up, square your shoulders, and support a candidate that will stand firm on the principals of the Constitution.

    I wanted
    Herman Cain, a true conservative and good man. But you Glenn fell right in with
    the MSM flurry. Where are those women today Glenn? Where? Any woman that had a
    13 year affair with a married CEO keeps evidence. THEY KEEP EVIDENCE Glenn.
    Where is it? And the timing of the claims. No alarm bells there, huh Glenn?
    Still you crucified Cain, made fun of him. But a dubious character like Shirley
    Sherrod, oh, you made sure she was innocent until proven guilty. You sold out
    Breitbart over that one. You gave a newly elected Obama the benefit of the
    doubt even with all the hard evidence of his Leftist radicalism. Others were
    too disrespectful you said. Obama was wrecking the country before you woke up.
    And now you’re asking your listeners to love radical “Occupiers”.

    Newt stood
    by Cain. Only Newt had the guts to publically hold judgment until evidence of
    the claims were substantiated, not concerned with how it might hurt his own
    campaign. The evidence has never materialized. Now Cain’s out and you’re
    wondering why so many of Cain’s supporters went to Newt and aren’t listening to
    you? Blame yourself Glenn.

    On the money, we need to keep pushing forward to reclaim what is ours; what so many have died for over the years since the founding of our nation.

    AMERICA is more than a name, or a dream or a cause; it is the potential and embodiment of all these and so much more in each and every individual of our nation.

    WE are AMERICA; we will win her back or lose her into the night by the choices WE the PEOPLE decide for our future and the future of generations to come.

    So this is the choice before us all today – freedom or tyranny; which will you chose.

    Mine has long been decided.

    I prayed to God last night asking if He still had a purpose for America right now–in hopes that He would allow her to live to fulfill it. I prayed that He would give America someone that is best for her at this time in history. America, you are living too small a goal! Getting rid of Obama and Obamacare is too small a goal. It is a needed goal to do, but a step: the country needs a vision from God Himself. I really believe that God still has a purpose for this country. If this country would just look to Him for that transcendent cause, that cause that is meaningful, heroic, and timeless, miracles can happen!

    I believe that gb has given the tea party a little too much respect.
    They were simply a disgruntled group who were built up by conservative pacs, superpacs and fox to be more than what they truly are.
    Their candidates for election were proven idiots who ran from questions and interviews because they didn’t have the brains to speak when the questions were spontaneous or real.
    They cost the republican party a majority in the Senate and ended up the joke of 2010.

  • Soulphoenix

    If we don’t stand up, we’ll end up with more people like Jon Stewart telling us what to think.  They say there’s a sucker born every minute, but the number has to be a lot greater than that – Pres. Obama relied on suckers exclusively to get elected, as did most of the Congress.  Most CEO’s rely on their Boards and investors to be suckers, which is a little tougher, but surprisingly not much.

    The Boston Tea Party was about a group of British citizens in the American Colonies demanding that they not be treated like suckers – as less than full citizens with no voice – by their countrymen and their King.

    The clear and present message from the Left is that those who aren’t in their camp are lesser people – less intelligent, less capable, less moral, less caring – and therefore unable to provide good leadership or worthwhile ideas.

    So the Tea Party now is like the Tea Party then.  We are equal citizens with a right to our voice, not lesser people to be quarantined by a supposed “intellectual and moral elite.”

    Both hard times and more miracles are coming.  And yes, God does still have a great purpose for this country.  That purpose will be fulfilled by those who can see clearly enough to recognize it and have the courage to step forward and take on some daunting responsibilities.

    Two things happened:  Tea Partiers got fooled by Newt’s apology for the Nancy Pelosi photo-op and his campaign has been playing up his role as American history professor and the fact that he’s a smart guy.  A smart guy who sits on the fence and holds up Woodrow Wilson and FDR as great American presidents.  We’re being dictated to by both the Media and the GOP machine with their take-it-or-leave-it attitude.  In other words, we’re being told to “settle” or split the vote with a Third Party candidate and hand the election to Obama, the worst of the three evils.  We have yet to vote our consciences.  Even among the Tea Partiers there are “elites” as well as Tea Party crashers from the Left and the GOP trying to influence the Tea Party vote.

    By the way, don’t count the Tea Party out just yet.  We must pray to God, as George Washington did in Valley Forge, to give us the courage to vote for the best candidate, not the most electable suit.  We must also pray to God that the huddled masses in the middle will summon up their own valor when they hear us sound the cry to rally around true, Conservative American principles.  They are starting to waver and wonder if we weren’t right all along; let us not rob victory from the jaws of success.

    Glenn, reur  question, ‘where is the Tea Party’?  I’m not an active Tea Partier but my opinion is that the feeling of inevitability has dampened the enthusiasm. After the ‘party’ chooses the Republican candidate, I believe the Tea Party will again rise to overwhelmingly defeat Obama and his minions. I heard your plea to everyone about comments on your blog and agree but it is so hard not to hate Obama and his policies because they are one in the same. Please keep up the work you are doing – we love you and your courage. Merry Christmas!

    I’m fed up with the right-wing TEA Party purist who say they speak for and are the “real” TEA Party.  The behavior, slash and burn politics, name calling and insistence on extreme, pure ideological adherence to issues outside the original goals of the movement is comparable to the tactics of the left.  The behavior and hatred doesn’t reflect my Judeo-Christian values.   

    The ubber-right is ignoring and dismissing the tens of thousands of TEA Party supporters who are center-right and moderate, those of us who were instrumental in growing the TEA Party into a significant movement that couldn’t be ignored.  Early on it was understood that “social issues” were NOT a part of the movement.  To ignore this is deceitful. 

    Vigorous debate, exchange of ideas and solutions are one thing.  The vile language, name calling, and intolerance of those of us who adhere to the original goals is unsupportable and is contrary to the values they preach.  

    Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, etc. do NOT speak for me and 58% of moderate and center-right conservative Americans who generally support the ORIGINAL TEA Party goals.  We are being driven away from the movement.  Without us the ubber, intolerant right-wing will once again reduce Conservatism to minority status.

    We all complain that “quality” candidates are not running for office.  Why should they when they’ll be treated with the vitriol present in today’s political environment.  Zealots on the extremes of both sides.

    In Arkansas we have the only diamond mine open to the public in North Amereica. You don’t look for diamonds when it is sunny.

When it gets rough and tough that is when “The Diamond” will rise to the top. Don’t despair it will happen.

    60% of Americans think that government is too big.  Before there was a Tea Party Movement…there was Rick Perry, putting their ideals into practice and law.  Yet…the MSM has blacked out Governor Perry and the TPM does nothing about this.  You have two candidates that are at the top tier…BOTH ARE Moderates..leaning to progressive.  Ron Paul is out in left field…if not out of the park with Iran/foreign affairs.  He has yet to explain “bubbles” to the average American citizen.  Bachmann lacks the experience to be POTUS…plus she has no bills to take credit for.  Santorum is back in the industrial revolution, wherein he wants to bring back “manufacturing” to America in industrialized states…CAN YOU SAY UNIONS…MR. SANTORUM.  And…if that does not get it all…he wants the American people to subsidize it with a 0% tax.

    Meanwhile…Governor Perry…busy in his state, created 40% of the private sector jobs, tort reform was passed and loser pays…lower insurance premiums, more docs moving into the state, the military darn sure does back him.  He has a jobs program that will not require the consent of Congress.  He knows the border and how to fix it.  He wants to take a wrecking ball to Washington….how about that…they currently don’t get anything done and the majority of American think government is too big…AND THEY ARE THINKING OF TWO PEOPLE THAT LOVE BIG GOVERNMENT…GINGRICH AND ROMNEY.  Yet…our media blacks out anything that is positive about him.  Then there is the only tax plan out there wherein everyone wins…easy…simple…and yet…the American people complain, whine for EXACTLY what he has on board and to offer.

    Tea Party…PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS.  I didn’t march on Atlanta and demonstrate so you could back progressives.  I demonstrated FOR POLICIES…EXACTLY LIKE PERRY HAS.

    So come on and tell us what right wing social issues you disagree with.

STAY THE HELL out of our right wing country and live with the libtards.  When a person picks between 2 evils, they only ensure the perpetuation of it.  You seem to think we can’t have it both ways.  The economic and social policy, but you must think you can have it both ways.  You can’t.  I will survive any of these retards anD I will thrive,  sorry you won’t be one of them.

    I had the opportunity to question Michele Bachman up close and personally and was totally  “turned off” by her response. As a native of Washington DC and the resulting exposure to the political hacks, I’m aware of when I’ve heard a “political talking point” in lieu of an answer.  Her response was evasive and insulting.    Beck has provided a good deal of historical insight toward his end run with FOX, but he has also been known to self-destruct (by his own admission).  Beck is entitled to his opinion, but I would caution to consider he may have a good deal less influence than he thinks.  Some times, celebrity endorsements can be the kiss of death to some candidates.  He can have Bachmann.  His proclivities with respect to the gop candidates reveals more about Beck than it does them.  I think he’s engaging in “wishful thinking” about Bachmann—-possibly akin to those who bought into Obama’s hope and change.  Projecting onto him, their own perceptions of what he meant by the mantra.  Think people!  Hoping for what?  Change can also be for the worse!  Vote carefully and with sobriety!

  • KayAZ12

    Your response proved my point.  And you guessed wrong.  I’m moderate on social issues, not liberal.  You are wrong on gay marriage and abortion.  On abortion I publicly support 80% of the pro-life movement’s agenda.  The other 20% is tactical and my aim is to reduce abortions as much as possible through education and persuasion.  

    I believe in a social safety net for those truly in need.  

    I believe in meaningful regulation for industry/business/banks/Wall St. which is equitably enforced (e.g. nuclear power plants, which I favor) but as few as possible.

    I believe in conservation, not extreme environmentalism.

    I believe in our national parks which I frequent.  I don’t believe in large government land grabs.

    All of these things were supported by what you label “progressive” conservatives.  By your definition, if you believe in any of them you are progressive.  Because you are pure and adhere strictly to your values I’m sure you’d never set foot in one of our national parks.

    It’s the left that distorted and grew government and these programs, not us.  So you tell me, are you going to get rid of everything?  If not, what and why and how is that not progressive?

    Glenn Beck George Washington BookPart one of threeHi Glenn,I read your book and no matter the glowing picture you imagine GW to be, I must evaluate him by what he and his fellow aristocrats stuck us with, being a form of government that only pretends to recognize the Naturally imbued rights of each individual person.All the way through you purport that GW was a strong unrelenting advocate of a non-monarchical form of government but you never explain how he came to that position. You barely mention Thomas Paine and give Paine no credit for convincing the population of the colonies that they could govern themselves without a king or an aristocrat class. You did mention Paine’s writing, Common Sense, but included no mention of the critical importance this work had on convincing the general population they did not need a king.You did mention the propensity of humans to be influenced by their historical heritage but then failed to apply that factor to those of the aristocrat class when they were considering the form of government that they would create after they had defeated King George III’s army. The revolt of 1776 against King George III was certainly not the first time the subjects of England had removed a king they had become disenchanted with, however in every previous instance the replacement was another king, never once was there any consideration that a government would be formed where such government would be controlled by the common people. Why would those of the aristocrat class of the American colonies even consider such an uncharacteristic deviation, where they would be giving up their superior social and political status that they had enjoyed for hundreds of generations?Due to the Natural inclinations of humans to follow traditionally established methods the commoners of the American colonies, would fully expect a king to be installed over them after King George was given the boot, so what was it that so drastically impacted the mind set of all involved?The way you paint it Glenn, seems to me to be totally uncharacteristic of humans, especially of those of the aristocrat class. Prior to Paine’s arrival there was no thought of eliminating the office of king, the complaint was that KG was not according the colonists the options customarily accorded British subjects – all they wanted was to be treated as were the British subjects living in England. Prior to Paine, the American colonists were not intent on self government, so why then would GW advocate such a form of government, and what would have motivated him to take the position you credit him with, against monarchal government as you credit him with in this book?You do mention that there were some there who suggested to GW that they create a monarchy, but you represent that GW would not even consider such to be established, but you do not present any explanation for his position other than to credit him with exceedingly high moral character.Then, after the Constitution was written and presented to the general population you fail to mention that it was totally rejected and that Patrick Henry’s statement when he read it was that he “smelled a rat”, and that Henry would thereafter have nothing to do with it.In your “Cast of Characters” you credit James Madison with writing the Bill of Rights with no mention that the absence of such protections in the body of the Constitution was the primary reason it was rejected when first presented, and neither do you mention that the commoners had presented some fifty proposed amendments that were distilled down to twelve, ten of which were ratified by the states. And neither do you mention that the commoners were unhappy that the Preamble began with the words “We the people of the United States…” rather than “We the citizens of the United States…” or, a reference to the governments of the states, as it was actually the governments of the Thirteen states that had the authority to accept or reject the Constitution.You also state that the Constitution created a unique form of government appropriate to a free people however how was the government created thereunder significantly different from the government of England?The Constitution established a House of Representatives rather than a House of Commons; the Constitution established a Senate rather than a House of Lords, and a president for four years rather than a king for life – where is the significant difference?Continued below as parts two amd three  On page 244 of your book, in a paragraph numbered 4, you wrote that John Adams had written, “All men are born free and independent, and have certain natural, essential, and unalienable rights, among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness.”On that same page in a paragraph numbered three you wrote “The Constitution acknowledges that the people are the true sovereigns in a republican government. The founders rejected the notion that a king has a “divine right” to rule. Under natural law, no man has the right to rule over another, unless the subject gives their consent.”

    Hi Glenn,
    I read your book and no matter the glowing picture you imagine GW to be, I must evaluate him by what he and his fellow aristocrats stuck us with, being a form of government that only pretends to recognize the Naturally imbued rights of each individual person.

    All the way through you purport that GW was a strong unrelenting advocate of a non-monarchical form of government but you never explain how he came to that position. You barely mention Thomas Paine and give Paine no credit for convincing the population of the colonies that they could govern themselves without a king or an aristocrat class. You did mention Paine’s writing, Common Sense, but included no mention of the critical importance this work had on convincing the general population they did not need a king.

    You did mention the propensity of humans to be influenced by their historical heritage but then failed to apply that factor to those of the aristocrat class when they were considering the form of government that they would create after they had defeated King George III’s army.

    The revolt of 1776 against King George III was certainly not the first time the subjects of England had removed a king they had become disenchanted with, however in every previous instance the replacement was another king, never once was there any consideration that a government would be formed where such government would be controlled by the common people.

    Why would those of the aristocrat class of the American colonies even consider such an uncharacteristic deviation, where they would be giving up their superior social and political status that they had enjoyed for hundreds of generations?

    Due to the Natural inclinations of humans to follow traditionally established methods the commoners of the American colonies, would fully expect a king to be installed over them after King George was given the boot, so what was it that so drastically impacted the mind set of all involved?

    The way you paint it Glenn, seems to me to be totally uncharacteristic of humans, especially of those of the aristocrat class. Prior to Paine’s arrival there was no thought of eliminating the office of king, the complaint was that KG was not according the colonists the options customarily accorded British subjects – all they wanted was to be treated as were the British subjects living in England. Prior to Paine, the American colonists were not intent on self government, so why then would GW advocate such a form of government, and what would have motivated him to take the position you credit him with, against monarchal government as you credit him with in this book?

    You do mention that there were some there who suggested to GW that they create a monarchy, but you represent that GW would not even consider such to be established, but you do not present any explanation for his position other than to credit him with exceedingly high moral character.

    Then, after the Constitution was written and presented to the general population you fail to mention that it was totally rejected and that Patrick Henry’s statement when he read it was that he “smelled a rat”, and that Henry would thereafter have nothing to do with it.

    In your “Cast of Characters” you credit James Madison with writing the Bill of Rights with no mention that the absence of such protections in the body of the Constitution was the primary reason it was rejected when first presented, and neither do you mention that the commoners had presented some fifty proposed amendments that were distilled down to twelve, ten of which were ratified by the states. And neither do you mention that the commoners were unhappy that the Preamble began with the words “We the people of the United States…” rather than “We the citizens of the United States…” or, a reference to the governments of the states, as it was actually the governments of the Thirteen states that had the authority to accept or reject the Constitution.

    You also state that the Constitution created a unique form of government appropriate to a free people however how was the government created thereunder significantly different from the government of England?

    The Constitution established a House of Representatives rather than a House of Commons; the Constitution established a Senate rather than a House of Lords, and a president for four years rather than a king for life – where is the significant difference?

    Continued below as parts two amd three

     
    On page 244 of your book, in a paragraph numbered 4, you wrote that John Adams had written, “All men are born free and independent, and have certain natural, essential, and unalienable rights, among which may be reckoned the right of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties; that of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; in fine, that of seeking and obtaining their safety and happiness.”

    On that same page in a paragraph numbered three you wrote “The Constitution acknowledges that the people are the true sovereigns in a republican government. The founders rejected the notion that a king has a “divine right” to rule. Under natural law, no man has the right to rule over another, unless the subject gives their consent.”

    Where Glenn, in the Constitution, is there any provision that acknowledges that the people are the true sovereigns in a republican government? Where Glenn, in the Constitution, is there any provision that establishes or acknowledges that the government created is republican in form? Yes, there is a provision guaranteeing that all member states shall have a republican form of government but there is no provision stating that status to be applicable to the federal government! Where is it Glenn?? Other than in your imagination?Part two of three:Where Glenn, in the Constitution, is there any provision that acknowledges that the people are the true sovereigns in a republican government?

Yes, there is a provision guaranteeing that all member states shall have a republican form of government but there is no provision stating that status to be applicable to the federal government! Where is it Glenn?? Other than in your imagination?In that same paragraph numbered three you continue with the following quote from Alexander Hamilton, “The fabric of American Empire ought to rest on the solid basis of the consent of the people. The streams of national power ought to flow immediately from that pure, original fountain of all legitimate authority.”Please take note that Aristocrat Hamilton placed the “fabric of the American Empire” on the people, with no mention of citizen input!Near the end of page 244 you write:”The federal government the Constitution created was only a protection from tyranny, not a way of life and certainly not a career. It allowed men to worship freely and to trade freely and peacefully among themselves. It granted the protection of property rights–the hallmark of capitalism–and gave men the right to pursue their own happiness.”When I read this last paragraph I was dumbfounded – I immediately perceived this paragraph as follows:”The federal government the Constitution created was a recognition of tyranny, establishing that the government created thereunder has the authority to allow men to worship freely or not, and to allow men to trade freely or not, and to do so peacefully among themselves, or not. It acknowledged the government created thereunder had the authority to grant the protection of property rights, or not–the hallmark of capitalism–and that the government created thereunder had the authority to give men the right to pursue their own happiness, or not.”My point here Glenn, is that the presentations on page 244 are vague, ambiguous and contradictory. On the one hand it seems to state that an individual man cannot be commanded by the government to do that which he would otherwise object to do, and on the other hand it seems to be stated here by implicit implication, that a majority of the people would have the authority to command the obedience of the individual by a popular vote.I have this question, “How many men voting would it take to properly and democratically vote the panties off of an unwilling woman?”Does not the foregoing question clearly establish that when the outcome of a vote purports to command the obedience of the otherwise unwilling that such voting constitutes a police state?Where Glenn, was it ever established that the United States would be governed by popular vote? Who voted to decide that? And where would the authority to decide such a tyrannical procedure originate from? And, who could reasonably have the authority to establish such a procedure?Let me change my question a mite, “How many men Glenn, would it take to properly and democratically vote the panties off your wife, daughter or mother?” I contend Glenn, that a major oversight in the creation of the Constitution was the Founders failure to include a clear and unambiguous definition of the source and extent of the authority of the government being created under this Constitution.I contend that the Constitution should have contained the following, “Nothing in this Constitution shall ever be construed to imbue the government created hereunder to have any more authority than any authority Naturally imbued into any one single individual man or woman.” On page 202 you mention communications between GW, James Madison and John Jay, in regard to their examination of the theory and practice of republican government. Why would anyone who was contemplating the creation of a societal organization intended to be different from any previous organization, where it was intended that what they were contemplating would be an organization controlled totally by the common people, consider designating it using a word that had previously been used to designate governments where there was no freedom of the common man and/or where the common man had no part in the creation or operation of such organization?I am a combat vet, during my service I visited China, South Korea and Vietnam (among many others). While still in the service I campaigned for Barry Goldwater in 1964. After my discharge in 1966 (after 14 years wasted) I continued my involvement in the Freedom movement where I became aware of the enchantment with the word “republic” – I was immediately dumbfounded due to my knowledge that the word “republic” was part of the name of many totalitarian police states – then one day I heard Ron Paul being extensively interview on a radio talk show where the host asked Paul to explain what a republic was – I was immediately all ears – Paul said, “A republic is a government where the people are governed by elected representatives and where the minority is protected from the majority.”Continued below as part Three of ThreePart two of three:Where Glenn, in the Constitution, is there any provision that acknowledges that the people are the true sovereigns in a republican government?

    Ron Paul would not support those things you say I would. but you can pat yourself on the back for being moderate as the ship of state sinks. The national parkds you tout was set up by Teddy Roosevelt, one of those progressive conservatives you called me. The Federal govt. purchased the land on which most of our parks sit in the L.Purchase. I get upset when they force citrizens to sell their land. Big difference. I believe in conservation, but I think that belonmgs to the states not thge federal govt. because it’s not in the constitutional mandate of the federal govt. powers. It is not progress when you don’t follow the constitution, it is regression.

    I could not believe my ears – I screamed at the radio, “Yes, you idiot – just like the minority was protected from the majority in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, where the minority was mowed down by government tanks!” Part three of three:I could not believe my ears – I screamed at the radio, “Yes, you idiot – just like the minority was protected from the majority in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, where the minority was mowed down by government tanks!” So Glenn, what is a republic? What are the similarities of the United States and The People’s Republic of China and the People’s Democratic Republic of [North] Korea?It seems to me that all three have a ruling class that makes the rules and a subject class that follows the rules – please convince me Glenn, that I am wrong!At the bottom of page 231 you write, quoting George Washington, “The Constitution which at any time exist, until change by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established government.”Where Glenn, is it established in Nature, what it is that constitutes the “whole people”? What about those that might disagree? Are the words of GW bot just a bit convoluted? If the “whole people” includes every single individual, as implied, then why would GW need to write a statement acknowledging that there might be those who would opt out? Who, according to GW, would have no right to do so, because, according to GW, everyone would have a sacred obligation to conform! How, Glenn, is this not the establishment of a police state?In this book you maintain that we must get back to the principles of the Founding Fathers but neither you nor anyone else nor the Founding Fathers ever defined what it is that constitutes those principles. You state, and represent that several of the Founders stated, that without religion moral character cannot exist but there is no definition presented as to what it is that constitutes moral principles, religious or otherwise.No where in this book or on your radio shows have I ever heard you or any other conservative talk show host offer an explanation as to what it is that constitutes the principles that you insist must be adhered to in order for freedom to flourish.Based on the tyranny we now suffer under, that has gradually evolved under the Constitution devised by the Founding Fathers and created behind locked doors, I contend that the Founding Fathers intentionally set up the government they did under the Constitution with the intention that it would devolve to what we now suffer under.Where Glenn, does the authority come from to imbue a government purported to protect individual freedom, derive authority to deprive the individual the ability and option of managing his or her own life? Where is the line to be drawn? Who gets to decide where the line should be? How far is far enough and who gets to decide? How far may the panties be drawn down the legs of your wife, daughter or mother before such would constitute a violation of her right to object?As you Glenn, have no Naturally imbued authority to command me to obey you, and as I have no Naturally imbued authority to command you to obey me, where could we possibly derive the ability to combine our non-existing authority to create authority that would properly imbue us with authority to command another to obey us? Would not such a condition constitute a police state? Just because previous governments have been considered to have such authority does not properly serve to establish that such authority was ever proper!!! If you physically threaten me do I not have the Naturally imbued authority to protect myself from your physical attack using what-ever force I deem necessary to defend myself from your physical abuse, including, but not limited to, killing you while you sleep? Who could possibly have proper authority to require me to thereafter prove that I was justified in killing you? Humans are not generally known to kill others without just cause. Under English common law it was required that at least two eye witnesses sign statements before an indictment for murder could be issued. It has become common practice in this country to be charged and convicted under the flimsiest of circumstantial evidence.Yet you Glenn, in your infinite wisdom, attack those of us who doubt the official story of what happened at the Twin Towers as “Communist truthers”. You would be well advised to examine the evidence brought out by Dr. Judy Wood, who presents factual proof that the buildings destroyed on 9-11-01 did not collapse down onto rubble, but were, without doubt, literally turned into dust – the buildings simply disappeared, and Dr. Wood explains the science that was used to vaporize the buildings, all of the contents, including the bodies of everyone inside.Please prove that I am wrong in anything I have presented here.Cheers,I’m Eric, WhoRU??

    If the show on fabiens was about progressives and how dangerous they are why would it pain you to pull the lever for mitt but you’d do it anyway? I see people talking about how bad these candidates are but non of them run. Like Mr. Beck and Mrs Palin and several of the people at fox news. Fox news seems to be pushing hard for romney as if they say its o.k. we will follow like sheep. romney in my opinion is one of the worst rinos out there. I used to be a Beck follower but when he said that on Napolitanos show I about cringed. Its almost as if it were a show to get us all rilled up and intent followers knowing all along you were going to be backing romney and because we would trust you and listen to you we too would pull the lever for a liberal progressive flip flopper baby killer etc. in romney. Ive noticed the people attacking newt are for abortion cap n trade etc and got passed up for people and seem to be holding grudges.Why is that? Whats so wrong with Rick Santorum? I do not follow your radio or show anymore but just if you might enlighten me with your wisdom as to why we should pick as much as it pains us the very type of person you told us to be wary of. Thank You Kindly MMP

    Glen,

    I’m proud of all my conservative brothers who would argue with each
    other to get the best candidate for this country. I don’t ever see the left do
    this with their candidates. 
    Conservatives care deeply for this country and I believe they are not
    willing to throw their principles out.

    What I don’t understand is why we need to throw Republican candidates
    under the bus to get a conservative in office.

    I
    believe Conservatives do vote on their principles unlike the left who vote on their
    agendas.  I would like to think that we
    can move Republicans like Newt Gigrich to support more conservative principles.
    We need to tell him and any other candidates how they can earn the conservative
    vote. If they disagree, then I believe we need to go in other directions.  I like to see the most conservative and constitutional
    candidate against Obama. Bachman and others still have a shot. But I don’t
    believe it is justified to tear down others to build up our principles which
    are based on truth.

    In closing,  I believe
    the Tea Party has power & influence because it takes a child’s view on
    Politics and America.  It’s a simple
    message filled with truth and most importantly love for our country and
    people.  I have heard you say truth is
    the most persuasive conversation we can have. If so, why not use it to drive
    all our candidates in the Republican Party into a single message and force for conservative principles?

    Or you in your right mind? Tell the Gop’er’s what to do? They have their own agenda and benefited when true conservatives joined them to overcome the radical liberalism
    confronting us. But their aim is not to placate us but to use us and really they have the same agenda as the Dems, just want to do it slower as GHW Bush said a “one world government” and I shivered as I knew then all this was coming!

    I am with you on all this Newt stuff.  I agree100%  there are no buts…  I will vote for Santorum or Bachman.  I like them both. You have convinced me that the others are of no concern.  My concern now is Santorum and Bachman are spiting the votes to win over Ginrich.  Just so you know I was all the way for Ginrich, but was also concerned with his past.  Thank You for helping me see his true colors.   God bless You and your staff.

    i am a 25 year old non graduate student although i graduated high school i found that college wasn’t for me.My mother has been watching you for a couple of years now and finds no one smarter other than me.. lol than yourself….i bring a lot to the table but i think the USA is all backwards in what we should be thinking at this time….jobs, money,and material goods. We are not preparing for the things that are to come and I know in my heart that they are coming people vs. people is on its way if you don’t love/ know thy neighbor they r after you. The grocery stores, if we r out of shipping and electricity, in any disaster will be out of food in 72 hours then who do you fair against other than those closest to use maybe not in realationship to you but in your area.What are we to do i say grow the fuck up and look at what is really going on stop watching weather the Texans or the Cowboys lost but the f-ed up news that we r having to listen to everyday and fill us with this hate toward on things that mean nothing, then focusing our actions on being better people here in the sates. Each day we grow close to this epic fail in being reasonable people , maybe not all of of us just just a few can cause the collapse of many. It only takes one person to say lets do this and rise above and give some sort of leadership for other “smaller” folk to follow and follow they will. Like you say glenn history repeats itself and when that time comes lets hope the person that rises is a wise one and not one that is not only focused on gain but love and giving…….i guess we will only see i enjoy your network and the best of luck toward you and your goals as i will also pursue mine and my families.

    We can elect people, we can’t make them do what they say they will.  Until the people get real teeth and can dirrectly fire the ones that don’t do as we want, electing them is all we can do.  I think everyone elected to office should have to sign a contract that tells them what their job is and what we expect.  If this contract is broken these people  can be arrested immediately, get them out of office and put the one in that they ran against in their election until the next election.  Make them sign a contract so we can get rid of them if necessary.  When they are arrested they loose their pensions and health care, their out and cannot hold public offfice for at least 2 election cycles or more.  No more having to wait for the next election while they stay in office and destroy the US and no more having to worry about them being re-elected to do more dammage.  Make them sign a contract that says they will follow the constitution and if they don’t there out.  Just think of the problems we could have avoided if osama had one of these contracts.   I can’t think of a better reason for this than what osama, reid, and pelosy have done.  This could have been avoided.  ALSO  This applies to all judges from the local to the supreme court.   This will include all the government workers in all the agencies in government. Until the government is really by and for the people, and not the politicians, it is not what it should be.  Until the people are able to dirrectly remove the ones not doing as they should why should they do as they should.

    Glenn,I’ve supported your positions,attended your DC rally,but,I believe you are 100% incorrect to hop on the establishment anti-Newt Gingrich bandwagon. With significant experience and having a record of actual accomplishments during his public service life Newt is a doer that beats out the ancient RonPaul Don Quixote image,Perry who has just been riding TX good good times,marshmallowRomney or  Bachmann’s crowing that she is a fighter but no wins or results.Unlike ANY other GOP contender,Newt made things happen while in pulic office albeit breaking some eggs and ruffling establishment GOP feathers along the way.Newt is seasoned,tested,humbled and STRENGTHENED by life. Only Newt has proven leadership ability with  nuts and bolts practical “how Wash DC really works” knowledge.President Newt will shake,rattle and roll Wash DC to becomee the most effective president since Truman and Ike.

    Let’s be real clear. God is not about Obamacare. God is not about America. god is not even conversative. Case in point – Jesus Christ. God is about spreading His Truth that His Son  is the way, the truth and the life.  God is pure. He sent His Son as a sacrifice so that we also could, despite ourselves, so that we also could be made pure. He paid our debt( without “occupied” intervention). We are reconciled into a relationship; the kind of relationship that brings people with different kinds of baggage together to fulfill a common purpose.  That is God’s vision for Americans(not necessarily America). America’s real problem is in education. Knowledge of him falls even shorter. We have become a nation of great ignorance; an ignorance that opens the door wide for radical socialistic ideas to take hold of young and old alike and leads them blindly. Why is it that in the last three debates, not one of our true conservative candidates has touched on this highly important issue. We hear so much about electability. The real objective is to sacrifice oneself to inspire sacrifice of others towards the common goal; eliminate the destructive status quo. This can only be done through intense relationship building through Love, Faith, and Hope. We can’t pray for this. What we pray for is for the strength to love when we want to hate, for compassion when we are angered, and for patience, for the plan is not our own. That is God’s vision for us; that we seek Him (Jeremiah 29), to be more and more like his son. Then those things we (think) we endear will be added. God help us all.

    I believe our best strategy will be to focus on the 2 or 3 issues that we most agree on, and press forward with more voices and a powerful vote. After all, the Boston Tea Party was very focused, even if it aided in future watershed events. There is nothing to stop us from in the future focusing & conquering that next important issue. I will support whatever gets most concensus, if you will in turn support mine when the time comes. I don’t smoke and I think it’s unhealthy, but I fully support your right to smoke yourself to death.
    I truly think if we continue to add issues and demands on the Tea Party movement, Atlas will crumble under the weight of the planets, and we will achieve zero in the long term.
    Maybe this is a way to relate to my suggestion. Out of 50 football fans you will likely have 50 diff opinions (often viceral & animated) on the best team, the best quarterback or the best rule change for next year.
    But they will all agree they love the game of football.
    So… In the spirit of NOT dividing the movement with too many issues, I will suggest only one of the 2 or 3 we should focus on…..
    UNITED STATES DEBT ELIMINATION through
    -Low tax burden to spur growth and
    -Limited sensible regulation of a free market economy to force financial industry transparency.

    Please give input and through concensus help build our 2 or 3 issues to focus on.
    My fellow Countrymen, Thank you for your consideration,
    Patrick

    Being a Christian is a personal endeavor that is not intended to infringe on anyone’s right to say or act on whatever their belif might be. Rather, it’s intended to establish  a life of personal accountability based on certain principles. My point is to say that in a time of critical decision making, we as Christians  base our priorities according to those principles which call for strenghtening the relationships of those that we may disagree with.  More importantly, if we have concerns about the degrading of these principles within our “Christian community”, education has to be our primary concern, lest we fall apart from within ourselves.Then,  and only then, can the promises of Faith, Hope, and Love become a beacon of light for others. Doing this requires  putting aside personal agendas, which become stumbling blocks, in the process of attempting to achieve mutual goals.

    I was on another blog that told me that my proselytizing was enough that their site was
    for relating to daily routine things like Politics? or Fun with cooking good morning  activities.
    But they booted me out trying to reveal the truth of God?! When the subject was a Muslim
    word called Taqiyya which means “The freedom to lie!” This made me think of the possible
    Muslim concept in our politics today! Especially with Newt Gingrich! Hey wasn’t he the one that
    stole Christmas? Ah! But I digress. Politicians have been known to be liars since politics began.
    their circumstances proves this! But they seem to use this Taqiyya in a deceiving concept
    because us dumb Americans don’t know any better! Only Newt knows what’s good for us, he
    is brilliant! You know… Now is the time to change this deceit! We can no longer let these
    politicians blind Americans with their lies. It’s time to learn political bias and learn the real
    reasons is for their power to lead us to a destruction of our godly values! Please! please! I
    beg you Learn how to research their backgrounds.  Glenn is right! we Now have to get active
    and show that We The People!!! are intelligent enough to see through this deceit and become
    aware of the true salvation that God wants to save our powerful nation if not just for us! But
    For God’s! Glorious Nation Israel! Let God’s Will! be done.

    You think Obama is bad. Just wait! If you vote Gingrich who knows more about Progressive-
    ism in office we’re most certainly doomed!

    Sara J.,

    I would really like to know what research has been done on RomneyCare vs. ObamaCare.  All I hear is that ObamaCare “designed the bill after Mitt Romney’s…plan.”  While I agree that this should be taken into consideration, I don’t agree that accepting this statement as a disqualification for Mitt Romney.  There are so many topics in history that stemmed from an idea that then became corrupt and distorted enough that it can no longer claim it is an authentic representation of the original idea.  Just within 15 minutes of google-based research (which I know has it’s flaws), there is plenty of information, articles and interviews to suggest that the “ObamaCare” is not a replica of the “RomneyCare” Massachusetts has experienced success with. 

    One must consider some of the other issues which raised concern with the American Conservative when dealing with ObamaCare that hasn’t been addressed in this article.  Such as the manner in which ObamaCare was passed in Congress and the Senate in a questionable manner.  Rushing a decision to be made before time for an accurate assessment could be made to determine whether it was a good law or not.  Another issue to consider when comparing is the appropriateness of the reform at a State vs. National level. 

    On another note, in regards to your position that we, the Tea-Party conservative, should not consider “electability” when choosing the GOP Candidate to go against Obama in 2012:

    Do I believe there are flaws in many of the candidates?  Yes.  However, is the “electability” of a candidate an important item to consider with this election?  YES.  In an ideal world, a strong candidate that has “true conservative” values AND is electable will come forward and end the struggle of determining who to vote for.  However, that perfect candidate has not come forward.  So, we, as the conservative American public, must consider not only who has the most similar ideals we hold dear, but who also can beat Obama.  In the end, this election will be a balancing act between finding the candidate who can appeal to enough “true conservatives” and who can also motivate the voter to place them in office over our current president.  If you believe Santorum and/or Bachmann are the ideal candidates, then why haven’t they motivated the country to get up and vote?

    They scare everyone.
    2012 for the Republicans seems to be very similar to the Dems in 1984.
    The election will be a landslide. The Republicans need to focus on the national legislative and state elections because their current moves and stances may lead to another shift in political power.

       Most all of congress is corrupted how can people that care for
    themselves, over than for others!  Care for their constituents if their
    basis is money! Over God! All parties have a choice to work for our
    benefit and chose corruption over ethics there just happens to be
    more on the Dems side because of their lack of ethical behavior from
    their liberal belief in God! They will all have to come into the reality,
    and they will! That God’s providence, truly is more powerful than theirs.
    I’m talking about all of congress here. Eventually there will be no
    congress when Jesus returns. Meanwhile corruption in this power
    will only net us the less than minimum of what we receive from our
    tax dollars because they fill their pockets whenever and as much as
    they get away it. So they really don’t care truly for ethics anymore!
    They actually never did. Should I go on!…

    I agree that some politicians are corrupted public servants.  The system of always needing to raise money or run for office is extremely difficult for them…especially in the beginning.
    I think it is disgusting for you to make the jump to “Dems…”and “their lack of ethical behavior from their liberal belief in God”! 
    What is the RIGHT way to believe in God?  What religion does an American need to be to believe in God the RIGHTThat is an evil and horrible statement!!  You are insulting millions of Americans!!!  You are ignoring the Republicans who must believe are much better than Dems because they believe in God the right way.

    this? We can’t! Now we have to depend on our Creator Yahweh God to send his Son!
    Be patient Jesus Christ is Near! He will save!

  • thelionoftruth

       The fear of Yahweh God, does not actually mean the fear of his Power! Though a frightening
    Power! The true Fear of Yahweh God is His Rightness of His Created Word! Only Yahweh and
    His Son possesses His Truth which is “Righteousness!” Or the right things to follow!

       We are Yahweh’s Created Beings! Therefore, We must learn how to receive the Rightness of His Word! Before we can truly communicate as His! Emissary to others. Then others learn,
    and teach others to teach others teach others…etc. If others have false teaching that those
    others will teach then those others will teach the wrongness of Yahweh God or become the
    adversary of the Rightness of Yahweh God! And teach false Religion! Against the One and
    Only true Yahweh God!   If you understand this then you therefore should seek out the truth of His Original Created Word! Thus Yahweh gives through His Son what is known as Holy Spirit which His Spirit Power to Communicate by passing on between Jesus His Anointed Messiah and Jesus passes His Holy Spirit on to those who truly asks! To Mankind! Make sense?
    unfortunately those that learned the false knowledge have become to far gone in their minds
    and argue they have Yahweh’s truth, and have become Yahweh’s adversarial believers! How
    God gets them back is up to God and them! Don’t shoot the messenger is a good common
    sense answer! But they killed Jesus, James, Peter and more on placing people on the right
    path to Yahweh God! Do you really have the right truth and kill someone for your knowledge
    that is the rightness of Yahweh God?

    You preach as if you are an expert, but you make monumental mistakes upon the way.
    First, I never defended a congressman, I simply pointed out your lies that Democratic lawmakers are more prone to “sin” due to their views.  Of course, in this post, you simply ignore your lies and try a different track of thinking.  This is fine.  Let us ignore the fact you broke the 9th Commandment and look at your newest naive mistakes.
    1.  In the Bill of Rights it states, “Congress
    shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or
    prohibiting the free exercise thereof”.  The Supreme Court and public leaders have interpreted this to mean that the U.S. can not declare or support any specific religion…nor can it snuff out any religion.  So, from the very beginning your pleas for a “Yahweh God” to rule over America will never happen.
    2.  Why do you leave out Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, Hinduism and dozens of other religions?  Are you stating that you want the U.S. to live under a government who rules through Christian religions alone?
    3.  You seem to be an expert, so I have to ask…What is “God’s Plan”?

    Now for those interested a taste of scripture. Jesus warned always that his words were not
    his own but from the Farther! (Yahweh God) and the words were God’s instructions to him.
    You should read Mathew 24:.. to get the context. Remember Yahweh’s Word!

       Jesus said in Mat. 24: 4. About the latter days is the end of the world as we know it;
    He said; “Take heed that no Man deceive you. 5. For many shall come in my name, saying,
    I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6. And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you not be troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
    7. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and shall be famines,
    and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
    9. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall hated of all
    nations for my name’s sake. 10. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one
    another, and shall hate one another. 11. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive
    many. 12. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
    13. But he that endure till the end, shall be saved. 14. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be
    preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
    15. Then let them which be in Judaea flee to the mountains:” (Their friends and relatives)…

    21. “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to
    this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22. And except those days should be shortened, there no flesh
    be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”

    30.”And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of
    the earth morn, (Tribes of Israel) and they shall see the Son of Man (This is important) coming
    in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31. A he shall send his angels (Messengers) with a great sound (Multitudes) of a trumpet and they shall gather together
    (Those that truly believed God’s truth) elect from the four winds, (All nations) from one end
    of heaven to the other.” 

       OK that’s enough for now. But you all should read All of Mathew 24! That is most of
    Yahweh’s purpose! But Just one more thing! What do you suppose in Mat 24: 35 means? 
    It means the politics and religions of the world will be no more. (Heavens of religious belief)
    (Earth is next age of God’s becoming a Reality) These are the words of God given to Jesus
    to warn us of His Plan to gather His elect into His Kingdom! Why would Jesus deceive you?

    The first  thing we as a people need to do is take back control of the govenment. Not by sit in’s, or riot type meetings and such. Those actions serve only to arouse the anger of the authorities against us.We need to, through petition of the entire country, show the all of the parties that we want a direct say in how we are goverened. The conduct of congress in how they deal with issues, is a problem itself.  We need to make the system simple. Such as when a bill is offered, the self serving congress tack on as many pork barrel items as they can, that should not be allowed. A bill should only contain those things which directly relate to the subject of the bill, as it was proposed. Example A bill about taxes should only pertain to issues about the proposed tax! Income tax should only contain issues of Income Tax. Not things such as funding for military hardware, etc. Items should be simple, and then they need to have and up or down vote on that one issue. I believe that we need to tell congress and the president to use the KISS principal. KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID! GOD HELP US!!   ………..Bill

    If God is our first priority, we believe in and follow Christ. If we follow Christ, we die to our “self” and serve Him. We serve Him by loving God AND loving our neighbor. We serve Him by becoming witnesses and TELL of all the awsome things he doesin our lives. We preach good news of healing and reconciliation. We teach those that follow alonside us. We rejoice and give thanks for this great country we live in, realizing that if are not good stewards, it will be taken away. However way our country goes, our destiny in Him is secure.

      The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me;

      In my distress I called upon the LORD,

    You want to know something really scarey!

    If you are not afraid and reject these warnings! You will be!  Well on Jesus first appearing he was the lamb!
    On Jesus second return he will return the Lion! What does that mean? He was gentle but firm
    (The Lamb) When Jesus returns he will be warrior like (The Lion) Known as “The Lion of Judah!”
    Jesus is to set all men straight and there will be no rejection of God’s Word! But those that will
    reject Jesus will fight Jesus and have war with him as his enemies of truth!
    When this happens be scared be very scared!  Because at that time it will be Yahweh’s Way!
    Or no way! You may laugh at this in today’s age! But when Jesus returns to give you the
    Solution of God’s Plan and Purpose in His Word in Love in also His Intellect in true (Harmony =
    Peace) Those that reject Jesus! Will be acted upon in force along with his saints as our Lion
    Leader
    in the Millennial Age! Go ahead and Think I’m Crazy, don’t be scared,
    laugh me to scorn, call me stupid or I have no knowledge of God! If you
    want to wait and see!
     
       You will then really See! By Jesus the
    (Lion!) King Himself!  The words are all scripturally revealed and can
    be proved by you! That is if you search them in loving respect when you
    learn Yahweh’s Word for yourself! Reject this! And suffer the consequences if you choose to wait.

    What the Son of God, Jesus is all about Is the Father of him and all
    Creation! Mankind has proved it! That by their nature is naturally evil.
    And to correct this evil God shows us how in His Manual called Holy =
    (separated) Bible = (Book or Book of instruction of Yahweh God!) To gain
    Yahweh’s knowledge you have to ask him in sincere faith that Yahweh
    will provide you with His instruction! All from the bounty of His hand.
    Yahweh provides all things, and, but has to confirm His presence by
    praying or calling out to Him always using faith that Yahweh will
    provide you with His instruction because your trust is sincerely
    believing that Yahweh will provide it to you. This starts small (Milk)
    at the learning of how it’s done. through faith as Holy Spirit grows in
    understanding the more you grow in Yahweh’s knowledge and understanding
    Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus will strengthen you to understand
    clearer Yahweh’s instruction of his plan and purpose that you must
    faithfully follow! This may sound harsh but it really isn’t but you
    truly have to recognize the true power of God being the source of all
    that you receive in your life. Including the breath that you breath.
    Faith has to be believing Yahweh will provide all things! Including His
    Son as His emissary of  all His instructions. I know this looks scary
    and I know this will be rejected by most. But if you truly read the
    Bible with Yahweh’s presence with you. Yahweh will guide and comfort you
    when He sees your heart is with him and you are striving for His
    instruction. A short version is in the Lords prayer:   

    Our
    Father (Yahweh) who art in Heaven (His Presence) hallowed be thy name
    (Yahweh) Let thy Kingdom come (His purpose) and thy will be done on
    earth, as it is in Heaven,  
      (It does not say:  In Me as it as it is in Heaven. Because Jesus
    would of taught us to Pray that way.) Give us this day our daily Bread.

    (God’s Knowledge) Heavenly Food! God’s Bread.) Forgive us for our
    Trespasses or (Sin against God!) As we forgive those who trespasses
    (Sin to Man) against us. Doesn’t need explanation. (Be God like) Lead us
    not into temptation. (Let not our minds be lustful of mans deeds.) But
    deliver us from Evil. (By your Grace and Knowledge save us.)
    For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory for Ever and Ever.
    Amen and Amen!

    lol, the GOP treats the tea party like the puppets they are.
    born of and bought and paid for by GOP lobbyists from the very beginning.
    the tea’s are beginning to realize this.
    and are realizing (albeit quite slowly) that they are suckers for following the whims of the GOP.
    the GOP machine will always think the tea’s will follow what the GOP says.
    because where else can the tea’s go?
    its not like they are an independant movement.
    the GOP/freedomworks folks built them out of whole cloth.
    i’ve been to the meetings.
    i have seen the “leader” simply tell the rest of them to vote for the GOP candidate..whenever the GOP gets done picking him/her!!!
    its a sad joke.

    time is short! Our Messiah is nigh! and Yahweh God’s Will be in His providence be done!
    If you choose to really be revealed by our Father and Creator all you need to be Yahweh’s.
    Yahweh will reveal Himself to you by your surroundings When you ask and look in faith!
    He will let you know! May the Seasons be of Yahweh’s Light of His Graceful Knowledge

    Your enthusiasm is refreshing. I share with you that God’s plan has been made clear and fulfilled through His Son Jesus Christ. In His last breath he said, “It is finished”. It is also established He will return and gather up his church. In the meantime, we don,t stand around and wait, but we preach “good news” and make disciples throughout the earth. We “don’t sell out, don’t sit down, and don’t shut up”. We are in the time of Noah, living in a dying world (morally mostly), and we are to build an ark and in this ark we add those that hear and listen and are saved with us. Although we know that our works do not save us, we work nonetheless so that the roots of our faith are strenghened that we might endure. In the end, all of politics, the anxieties, the lies and the deceptions that we stand up against will be brought into submission. We won’t worry, we won’t fear, we’ll love our enemies as we are called to do. These are the elements of God’s plan for our lives as we await the coming of our Lord. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    I keep hearing anyone but Obama and yes Obama needs to go!
    But do we sell out our values again and again to get anyone but Obama! I have
    been for the last part of two decades holding my nose and voting the less of
    the two evils but the lesser of two evils keeps getting closer and closer to
    the same evil. Example, Romney he started the Obamacare before in his state
    before Obama was even on the radar and guess what some of the people who
    created Rommeycare worked and help create Obamacare! Of all the Judges
    appointed by Romney in Massachusetts 2/3 where liberal judges! Two ladies that
    work in the EPA now (creating regulations) use to work for Romney! I digress
    for a moment does anyone notice that people who use to work for Romney now work
    for Obama so what does that say about Romney and people he hires? Romney will
    not be transparent will not show his financial statement and Romney says he
    will not undermine the undermining of the “don’t ask don’t tell”! It
    goes on but it Christmas and I trying to be nice. If the candidate is Romney
    well he will not get my vote he is no different than Obama in his policies and
    making him President will only help how. He will just continue what has been
    done and not try and make any conservative policy take back. With Obama he lowered
    the bar in numerous areas with Romney he will just maintain the lower bar.

    You make a great point. You voice a concern that  speaks for many who are hoping for a change, yet not being sure how thats going to work. First of all, let’s focus. Change HAS to happen. But remember, Rome can’t be built in a day, but you sure can destroy it in one ( actually, it’s taken years of desensitizing people’s hearing and thinking capacities). To keep things on a positive not, we have to establish an objective with an openness for some compromise. Not all who want change are “true” conversatives, but we will need their vote to overcome the odds. And please understand, the odds are greater than we can all imagine. We’re up against a growing “ignorance” being bombarded with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of lies that they’ll believe. I’m sorry , to win the war, we may have to lose a few battles.
       Second of all, we have to have a clear understanding of who our real enemies are. First, there’s the media which provides the platform. Second, Obama by himself is not an enemy. He is merely a puppet of deep pocket union bosses. Thirdly, we have an educational system tha is much like a long bridge riddled with C-4 setup to explode when you try to fix it.
        Lastly, know the issues and and the status of those issues and how they relate to each other. In other words, understand the money trail.
        Aside from that, you cannot panic. Be patient. Do not pay attention to the polls. Nothing has been decided yet. My preference is Newt. And yes, he has the biggest pile of baggage. But Look at all of the good things he has done. Look at all of the bad things he has done. Look at all of the years of leadership he has served. Look at all of the obstacles he had to face during the Clinton years (another era full of lies and deception). Listen to his testimony(slight as it might be). Look at his arrogance. Look at his aggressiveness and determination. He gets attacked more than anyone else. To me he is a wounded bear trapped in a corner who will fight to the death and yes not always clean, but his fight is what would give us a better chance to survive.
       BUT, either way, you and I, we have to stand togetheryou may have to pick up some other undesirables along the way if you want to win this fight. I don’t know that there will be another.

    yes, Obama is to small, that is why we are starting with our family , then walk out the door to the neighborhood, then go into town and see what needs to be done, then take a trip to the next county after that go to the state. When a pebble is tossed into the pond the rippels go far beyond. Restore Love, restore the Love.

    Dream big, son. You are significant, your post has touch my heart.

  • thelionoftruth

       I agree somewhat with you jloisjr. But you may not be aware of progressive issues that
    Newt promotes and when the going gets tough he may be threatened by his contemporaries
    and let important  issues slide like military options that may be one of the nations largest threats!
    And our greatest threats could be Israels protection in the middle east which no one admits we
    are at war with to this day. Not with the people! But with the ones that cause others to believe
    they are fighting for their god and killing in the name of their god!

       Remember We should look to be with God and His providence which being Human sometimes turns a corner not knowing where Yahweh God turns Man to, for His purpose for
    our lessons to understand His purpose of becoming His reality, not for us to create our own
    reality because it’s always been Mens decisions that messes it all up!

       Let us all pray to God first before we make our decisions and and let Him be our guide to
    follow His plan for our nation! This will be for His purpose to become our purpose to be with Him!
    That is what one of Yahweh’s ultimate end purposes is!
     
      Let nations be against nations, and rumors of wars happen! But hear! God tell us in Mathew 24: 44. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man comes.
    45. Who then is a faithful and wise servant whom his lord has made ruler over his household,
    to give them (Food) meat in due season?
    46. Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he comes shall find so doing.
    47. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

       Following God’s directions grows your thoughts into a greater leader for His purpose!
    A greater place for your intellectual mind to be. when you listen to Yahweh’s instructions. 

  • thelionoftruth

        I am going to give everyone that reads this a story that is not about fairness or anyone
    even thinks they deserve what I’m writing about! It is about moral character in a capitalist
    market. I write this because moral character has been lost especially in the banking and or
    fuel oil and various other fee based markets. 

       First of all the markets is banking. We will probably never know who actually came up with the fee processess and for what reasons they were made, but I think we can make a good
    guess!
    And I’m going to get right to the point! I consider myself lower middle class borderline poor in
    the USA. and I will give some details later. Well for the longest time my credit has been really
    poor and has been using cash only and doing fairly well thank you without the use of banking in
    my wife’s and I using savings or checking accounts. One because we were forced out by the
    banking systems fees such as overdraft and late fees. And It was our fault by the nationwide
    understanding of banking rules and regulations. One year! In one years time we accumulated
    over $3000.00 of Overdraft and late fees that we could have saved us from ourselves if they
    were not accrued by some how reapplying them back to our accounts instead of making the.
    money of us.You see because of our poor credit rating, we couldn’t open a fee protection
    program that led us to our accounts destruction.

       The problem is this!
    People that are financially well off enough that make enough money and fair well in their kept
    households. probably never! Except by mistake, never pay these Overdrafts and late fees
    because, one, they always have enough in their accounts and two, have the credit to
    possess the overdraft protection fees. That is well and fine! But what happens morally when
    they should lose their position or jobs, and become lower middle class poor!
    They get zapped with losing their credit, their fee protection plan and begin loosing money
    from their banks up to $35.00 in overdraft fees that they take advantage of every snowballed
    overdraft that continues coming in that happens and we have no control of it because it’s like
    once our money is in their hands they own it! And they take it! One time our overdrafts were
    over $360.00 from one check being less than .60 cents and could have been made up if they
    didn’t take their $30.00 overdraft fee causing about 11 of our payment checks to all be charged
    an overdraft of each we had to pay back to fulfill  and cover them by having to borrow the $360.00 to get us even. I felt desolated! And the Banks had that power over me because the
    morals of someone forced this on everyone in my position! And it happened over and over again.
    And my wife and I felt powerless to do anything about it! When that bank was through with us
    we owed them $600.00 some odd dollars, and could not join any bank until we paid it! 

       I ask you who made these rules and why?! Because it’s only the poor that have to pay them!
    The well off never see them!  The oil Companies are the same they only give ten days if you
    pay within that time you get .10 cents off well if your well off you get your 250 gallons for $25.00 cheaper What about if you don’t have $500.00 dollars to pay your full amount Why should the poor pay the full amount and the well off get a break?  It is not about fairness it’s about Moral-
    ness. Who should help who? The companies should give the poor the breaks until they become self sufficient to pay!  If they were Godly people they would. Thanks for looking at my disturbing
    analogy  Yours  Leo.

    We of the TEA Party must NOT waver or get so embroiled in our own private problems that we forget all that we accomplished in 2010: we are still NEEDED!  New evidence that the left is running scared: condemnation from the DoJ against South Carolina’s Voter ID law!  We who ARE Americans are REQUIRED to have Driver’s Licenses, SSI cards, Birth Certificates, Car Registration, etc., etc., etc.!!!!.  The ONLY way the left can win is IF THEY CHEAT!!!!!

    Tea Party..Why not vote for your founder Dr. Ron Paul?  He is the only real constitutionalist running.  Every decision Paul has made in the past 30 years including his foreign policy has been based on the constitution. Whether he agrees with it personally or not, he will do what the constitution says..He lives by it.. He is our political messiah and the last hope for America! If you’re like Glenn and disagree with Dr. Paul’s  foreign policy (which follows the constitution) please just take a second and  think about this… Can we afford another war? I mean can we really $$$ afford it.. Why do you think we’re broke? Its not just bailouts and inflation. Its the never ending war on “terror”.. we’ve blown trillions of dollars defending the borders of Afghanistan and pakistan and done nothing about our own. The media is beating the war drum on Iran and they’re trying to get you stirred up with fear just like they did with Iraq..this is big business and the media are funded by these elitist entities. Its propaganda.. Power and Money Thats what these wars are about.. And trust me, were not the good guys. Besides, is it a smart move for us to invade a country that has a nuclear weapon?? That’s Stupid as hell!! I’t be safer to mind our own business and focus on our own defense here and let Israel defend themselves with there 300 nukes and their gigantic army.. That’s what they want anyways, their sovereignty back..We’ve killed millions of civilians since 911 in the name of security..Rest assured, If we go into Iran you can kiss our economy goodbye. By the 2016 election America will be a 3rd world country. Policing the world is dangerous to us financially and it goes against the constitution. We’ve got to stop policing the world before our economy implodes like the soviet’s did after their 9 year war in Afghanistan. Its obvious to me that all these other candidates have stolen Dr. Pauls platform and are telling you what you want to hear but at the end of the day they are all big government progressives and it will just be more of the same. Please dont buy into it. Stand for liberty and the constitution and join the revolution!! vote for Ron Paul in 2012. Our last hope..

    Hope Christmas was Merry!  Mine was Contemplative!  
     
    This primary season has been a bust for me right from the beginning when it became apparent that Sarah Palin was being eliminated as a Presidential Contender by not only the Republican Elites but by others like Anne Coulter, Laura Ingram, Eric Erickson, etc.  Sarah was a unifying force in the Tea Party…one of our great Generals who was implicitly trusted.  
     
    Now the same Elites have systematically destroyed every other non-Romney candidate that we have put forward including Newt…The contempt that these establishment types have for us is just glaring to me.  I believe that these Elites are the enemies of the Tea Party, the nation and of freedom itself… I believe that these RED COATS, as I call them, do not hold dear the same principles that we in the Tea Party cling to with our hearts and souls and our own life’s blood if necessary.
     
    I am no longer willing to stand with them and I am certainly no longer willing to buy into the false propaganda that we must vote for candidate Romney because this is the only way to save the country from Obama.  I reject this notion.  Red Coat Romney’s ignorance, cowardice and lack of core are detrimental to the country and will continue us on a path of national decline and certainly bring about an end to the TEA PARTY.
     
    I agreed with Glenn Beck (though I am currently mad at him) when he said soon after Obama was elected, that we would have been worse off if McCain had won because we never would have recognized so clearly the progressive plan to “fundamentally transform” the country.  We needed a radical like Obama to slap us in the face with it.  We never would have believed such a thing of John McCain, the War Hero carrying his Big Republican Bat, hiding behind it his big government progressive beliefs… and the Red Coats would have continued to get away with their charade… fooling us by cloaking their deception and corruption in a shroud of “Yippee America” while they drove their progressive knives into our national back.  The great slap from the Marxist Obama woke us up to all of this deceit and birthed our grand movement…the Tea Party.
     
    Now the “poser” Romney is put before us and we are told that he is inevitable.  All challengers to him are destroyed most viciously and we are instructed that when he is the Republican nominee we must vote for him because we must take Obama out at all costs. There is no other choice for us except to vote for Romney.  Even our own people are telling us this…YOU MUST VOTE FOR ROMNEY IF HE WINS THE PRIMARY NO MATTER WHAT BECAUSE WE MUST GET RID OF OBAMA NO MATTER WHAT!  We are being brainwashed into believing that this is some kind of absolute TRUTH…I just can’t buy it!
     
    The Tea Party’s existence hinges on our integrity and loyalty to principles and that Romney is the anti-Tea Party candidate and that we must desert our principles to pull the lever for him to win and gain absolutely nothing for it but a possible Obama-Lite president who would ultimately bring about our destruction by his very nature and obvious contempt for us.  
     
    I believe the Red Coats see our dilemma very clearly and understand that if they can convince us that we must vote candidate Romney into office at all cost…they get to kill two birds with one stone.  Romney gets in and the TEA PARTY IS OUT!  DEAD!  GONE!  
     
    They understand the game very well and know we will never survive such an assault upon ourselves. What a SCAM!   They get Romney and we get “hoisted upon our own petards”.  How can we possibly vote principled Tea Party candidates into congress on the coattails of a Romney? 
     
    How can we righteously present our candidates if we are supporting a Romney Presidency?  How can we speak Tea Party philosophy with Romney stamped across our foreheads?  The Tea Party will survive Obama and become stronger.  We will never survive Romney and the Red Coats if we lend them our good name.  They are our nemesis.  We must not become them for any reason…the fallout will be detrimental and the damage irreversible.
     
    The time has come to make a stand…to put the Elites on notice that we will not pull the lever for the “poser” Romney…that we are prepared to sacrifice the presidency and put all our energy into the Senate and House races where we will compete with them for all seats. 
     
    The Tea Party must show resolve and strength!  We can take over both houses of congress in 2012 and fill them with as many of our own people as possible.  We can stop Obama this way, maintain our integrity and buy ourselves the time we need to better organize or break away completely. 
     
    A shot across the bow of this magnitude would let the Red Coats know unequivocally that we are not to be trifled with.  It would also be a huge draw to many disaffected voters looking to politically ally with our principles but who won’t touch us because of the current Republican brand. 
     
    Many times we are frustrated with our African American brothers and sisters as they sit obediently on the Democrat Plantation.  Sure they complain and Massa throws them a bone or two…and we see this rip off clearly for what it is…and we wonder why they take it and remain loyal…but don’t we now risk this very same fate for ourselves?  Vote for candidate Romney…It’s the only way for you…Obey Massa Red Coat… he knows what’s best for you! 
     
    Will we fall in line…desert our principles…vote Romney in like we are told and sit obediently down on the Red Coat’s Plantation?   Will this be the fate of the Tea Party?  If so, what a disappointment!  What a waste!

    I don’t know how progressive Newt can be after starting his campaign so badly – mainly because of multiple questionable remarks about Obama during his very first interview. Newt has never been loyal, faithful, or dedicated to any goverment, party, or sponsor – only to himself.

    So, I will remark that if Glenn Beck ever decides to endorse Newt – the ultra patriotic, family first, respect the troops, and loyal to the constitution Glenn Beck – the only reason that he could possibly have to do so would be that he (Glenn Beck) is a racist.

    Now the Tea Party better remember that the group most ignored by George W. Bush was the Christian Fundimentalists, because he could count on their blind support. The same thing is going to happen with any of the current candidates, mainly because it is hard to stay angry when you get 55% of what you want.

    One note – If Glenn Beck is wanting to be seen as a credible radio entertainer, he should start opening the candidates’ baggage and holding it up for everyone to see now, meaning this week, instead of giving the candidates one more chance to blabber at the public. I mean really sock it to them: research all of their elections, voting records, connections to money men, trot out their mistresses and vices, ask all the awkward questions now. Because after South Carolina, it isn’t going to matter as much, especially when the hourly talking point faxes put everyone in line on 2 or 3 topics for the next 9 months.

       Revelation 18

     1And after these
    things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power;
    and the earth was lightened with his glory.
     2And
    he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is
    fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold
    of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
     3For
    all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and
    the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the
    merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her
    delicacies.
     4And I
    heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people,
    that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her
    plagues.
     5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
     6Reward
    her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to
    her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
     7How
    much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment
    and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am
    no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
     8Therefore
    shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and
    she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who
    judgeth her.
     9And
    the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived
    deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they
    shall see the smoke of her burning,
     10Standing
    afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great
    city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
     11And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
     12The
    merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls,
    and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood,
    and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious
    wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
     13And
    cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and
    oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and
    chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
     14And
    the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all
    things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou
    shalt find them no more at all.
     15The
    merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand
    afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
     16And
    saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and
    purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and
    pearls!
     17For in
    one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and
    all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea,
    stood afar off,
     18And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
     19And
    they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying,
    Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in
    the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made
    desolate.
     20Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
     21And
    a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into
    the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be
    thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
     22And
    the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters,
    shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever
    craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a
    millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
     23And
    the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice
    of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in
    thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy
    sorceries were all nations deceived.
     24And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.  

       Revelation 19

     1And after
    these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying,
    Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our
    God:
     2For true
    and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore,
    which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the
    blood of his servants at her hand.
     3And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
     4And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
     5And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
     6And
    I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of
    many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia:
    for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.
     7Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
     8And
    to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and
    white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
     9And
    he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the
    marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true
    sayings of God.
     10And
    I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it
    not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony
    of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of
    prophecy.

    they want money to help poor people with such information as to save on electricity!

    I just got this information, thought I’d share this.  The Obama Admin. just awarded a new government contract for NEW LIGHT ATTACK AIRCRAFT to a BRAZILIAN company (Embraer) this past November.  The American co. Hawker Beechcraft was told they COULDN’T bid on this contract even though they had won many such contracts before.  The Brazilian co.
    Embraer has a major investor…George Soros, and this country has major ties with Iran.  This  contract would have created many hundreds, if not thousands, of new jobs.  This can be checked.  The story was on REDSTATE.COM, 11/2, by Ben Howe, and WorldPress.com, 11/22, by Gary P. Jackson.  We need to get this info out to as many folks and other websites as possible.  Obama, as we all know is a liar.  He does NOT want to create ANY jobs, he just wants to increase the numbers of folks on the entitlement tit.

    You people in the main stream media make me sick. That’s right, I
    called you the main stream media because that’s what you are. You give
    lip service to liberty, free markets, reduced spending and the
    Constitution, but you’re really no different than the liberal media that
    you pretend to bash all the time.

    We finally have a true conservative in the race, Ron Paul, a man who
    for over 30 years who’s been fighting tooth and nail for the average
    American taxpayer…who voted against all the bailouts, all the
    entitlement programs, and all the government’s intrusions into our
    lives… and what do you guys do? You pull out tactics of “the left” and
    find 8 sentences out of 10’s of thousands of pages of newsletters… 8
    sentences that he didn’t even write… and you use it to label him as a
    crazy anti-Semitic, racist, homophobe.

    Why do you do it? Because you’re all bought and paid for just like
    the majority of our politicians and the so-called liberal media… except
    instead of being bought and paid for by unions and communists you’re
    bought and paid for by the Pro-Israeli lobby and the military industrial
    complex.

    You rail on Ron Paul for his foreign policy when any one with a brain can see that our current foreign policy is deeply flawed.

    Let me ask you… who funded Saddam Hussein’s rise to power?

    Who funded and armed Bin Laden and his band of radical Islamists to fight off the Soviets?

    Iran was a democracy in 1953. Who overthrew their elected leader?

    Here’s how our middle eastern foreign policy has been handled…

    We install puppet dictators and bribe them with taxpayer dollars in
    the form of foreign aid. This foreign aid is never seen by the people,
    but instead is used by the puppet dictator we prop up to arm himself and
    keep control of his own people. Then, the dictator gets out of hand and
    we have to invade them…like Iraq. Or the eventually the people get sick
    of this and overthrow their dictator and put in a government of
    American hating radicals…like Iran, Egypt, or Libya. Same story over and
    over, like a giant, global game of whack-a-mole… and it’s costing us
    trillions. But you don’t care because you’re getting paid to spew the
    war propaganda. Iraq never was a threat to us and yet we’ve spent over
    $1.5 trillion over there, thousands of America soldiers have died, and
    hundreds of thousands of Iraqis…all to overthrow the dictator that WE
    put in power. Now we’re going to do it again with Iran. I really wish
    the people would wake up and realize that the so-called conservative
    media in this country is no better than the liberal media. Nothing but
    lies and distortions.

    If you guys were really for small government and against the
    wholesale looting that’s taking place in the this country right now by
    our congress, the banks and the multinational corporations… you’d be
    screaming Ron Paul’s name from the rooftops…but instead you go out of
    your way to call him crazy, nutty and unelectable…because you know that
    you’re getting a cut from the gravy train just like the rest of them.
    You have to use personal attacks to do this because you know he’s never
    flip-flopped on an issue and he’s never voted against the interest of
    the American taxpayer. He’s the one honest politician we’ve got and you
    try your best to label him as a nutcase… and you label his supporters as
    unpatriotic or say that they don’t support the troops.

    Less than 35% of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan think
    the wars are worth it. Ron
    Paul is a military war veteran who gets more
    campaign donations from active duty military than all the other
    candidates combined because he wants to end the wars and bring our
    troops home. Instead you guys prop up draft-dodging socialists like
    Gingrich and Romney. Let me give you a hint… neither of those 2 guys are
    going to reduce the size of the federal government. So you can talk
    about electability if you want, but in my opinion 2 guys who worship at
    the alter of green jobs and healthcare mandates are going to give us
    nothing but more of the same if elected.

    If you really supported the troops, you’d elect who they’re supporting and that’s RON PAUL.

    Thursday, December 29, 2011JERUSALEM — The head of Israel’s intelligence agency says that a nuclear-armed Iran does not necessarily pose an existential threat to the Jewish state, according to Israeli ambassadors.Mossad chief Tamir Pardo addressed a conclave of Israeli ambassadors in Jerusalem on Thursday, saying that Israel’s existence is not inevitably endangered by Iran acquiring an atomic weapon, even as Israel has tried to disrupt Iran’s nuclear program.

    Ezekiel 23:19-20
    Yet she increased her prostitution, remembering the days of her youth
    when she engaged in prostitution in the land of Egypt. She lusted
    after their genitals as large as those of donkeys, and their seminal
    emission was as strong as that of stallions.

    Whats your point?

  • thelionoftruth

    Your point is: Man (Israel!) will lust after greater manly things! When there is no Greater Being or thing Greater than our creator Yahweh God!

       My point is: The time of the end is near and Yahweh God is to send His
    Gatherer of the twelve Tribes of Israel Elijah to get them ready for their return to Their country for His Judgement in His righteousness! (“And they will look him
    whom they pierced”!)

  • thelionoftruth

    Tonight we will take a page out of Bro. Roberts book
    of life . .  . .

    ” GOD has permitted the recovery of the Truth in
    these latter days, and there is a liability that it might be lost
    again, through the inability of complacent minds of limited
    grasp to see its wide lying breadth, and through their tendency to sympathize more readily
    with the human than the Divine bearing of its doctrines.

    The doctrines of the TRUTH embody the thoughts of
    GOD, and the thoughts of GOD are higher than the thoughts of men, and therefore, the majority of men easily fail to rise to the height of them, or easily fall from the height when lifted up to them.

    The death of Jesus Christ has more to do with the
    exaltation of GOD, than the salvation of man. Most men take in the latter more easily than the former, and quickly get astray through the power of mere
    humanitarianism.”

    I believe Paul is a good man and his domestic agenda/policies are great.  It is his foreign policy which is his downfall.  His foreign policy is so out of touch with reality is the reason he is unelectable.  No need to quote the Constitution or any history lessons, but China is every bit a threat as the Soviet Union was and is getting greater.  To withdraw our influence and troops from that Pacific area is a gigantic show of weakness and incompetence.  The Middle East “Needed” brutal dictators that we help install into power.  It kept the peace and a bunch of fanatics in line until we abandoned them.  Living under the Shaw of Iran was nothing like living under the present regime or since 1979.  I don’t think a democracy is possible in that area of the globe.  I feel it is fatalistic to “wait” until our enemies are knocking on our very door to then do somehting about it.  George I was right to leave Saddam in power to keep Iran in check.  Too bad George II had to take him out, now look what the world faces…

  • w. Parker

    At 58, I’ve never seen such trash filled filth talk, accusations, and the like among the republican party – about “other republican” party members running for president than is going on now.  If Obama wins another election, it is mostly at the fault of the republicans themselves!  I have stood besides the Tea Party, but recently all they’ve done is put their big foot into their mouths causing a backlash of unfavorable public opinion which is hurting the republican cause and to overcome obama and democrats.  I have little respect towards so called conservative talk show hosts and many republican candidates themselves who have bashed other republican candidates.  They have all given the liberal MSM and obama amunition to destroy the republican nominee.  You can’t turn on a liberal talk show and not hear all the negative bashing from “republicans” themselves!!! – giving society the feeling we are the most disorganized bunch of self defeatists the country has ever seen.  Reagan had “class” and he showed it from not bashing his rivals.  Why can’t a candidate run a positive campaign based on their accomplishments and forethought rather than belittling another candidate??  It is Cheap, low-life, shows no class and is just plain dumb

  • w. Parker

    Pardon me, but to say Newt is more of a progressive than Obama is absurd!  I won’t bother to list his many accomplishments but what has any other candidate “proven” that they’re a conservative?  What are “any” of their accomplishments?  Talk, just talk and words they know you would like to hear, which has mainly been negative in nature, bashing Newt.  And as far as Isreal, american jews have voted “democratic” for years.  They voted for Obama.  They are expected to vote democratic “again”.  From the top 10 list of famous influential jews, Obama was voted honorary 11th!  An influential Rabbi had compared Tim Tebow to Muslims!  We’re voting for who is the best president for America and Americans, no one else

    I have always agreed with Glenn on his view points until now – I’m a very conservative Tea Party person and I love Newt and think he would make a great president.  I was a fan of his even back when he was Speaker and under such ugly attack.  Face it folks most our media is Liberal and they are going to attack the one’s they are most afraid of – Newt.  Newt has always fought hard for this nation and was a leader of Reagonomics which we all praise so much.  Well if you are pro Reagon then you should be pro Newt since he was part of that team.  It seems since Glenn is a man that admits his life was once a mess and he made lots of mistakes would treat candidates with some mercy – even candidates grow and change their minds.  A healthly candidate is one who admits where they made mistakes in the past and make it clear they now see things differently.  If candidates admit they were wrong and let known how they would vote today on issues that’s what is important.  I believe Newt is a true conservative and honest – so honest it may hurt him at times.  But honesty is always the best policy and wins in the end.  I love the way Newt is trying to run a positive campaign.  Go Newt – I love to hear your ideas and I love to hear you debate!!  Go Newt!!

    Important Information: Obama just gave a new government defense contract to a Brazilian company “Embraer” for a new light attack aircraft. The AMERICAN company, Hawker Beechcraft was REFUSED the opportunity to bid on this contract.  Guess who is the major investor in this Brazilian co.?  Geo Soros.  This WOULD HAVE created hundreds, if not thousands if you include all the subcontractors, for hurting Americans.  Obama is ACTIVELY TRYING TO TRASH THIS COUNTRY.  PLEASE GET THIS WORD OUT

       Yahweh God Elohim of Israel! Reveals this to His true
    Worshipers through His Holy Spirit. The evidence is learned
    through faithful research of scriptural key words and numbers
    and colors in prophecy by following God’s commands and
    instructions in fundamental foundations of God’s directions.

    You know it says that no one will no when the apocolypse will happen, even if you accept that it will happen. And can you talk without capitalizing every other word? Saying god is evidence isn’t enough.

  • thelionoftruth

    I have no idea how you walk with God, but the closer you become with God in Holy spirit, God reveals Himself. That’s how we are seeing a clearer revelation. But don’t get us wrong we do not know exactly when Christ return, but by the Biblical signs we know! it’s near the time so we can prepare ourselves for Christ return. It’s Your choice to learn more for yourself or
    no. I’m just a messenger.

  • Anonymous

    If so many people have been wrong about the apocolypse what makes you think you’ll be right? They all had “evidence”.

  • thelionoftruth

    Man tries to reveal the apocalypse by their own interpretations of signs! But Yahweh God reveals to those that grow and bond closer to Him through His true Holy Spirit which in most cases has to be learned unless God chooses you as a direct contact. No one knows how God works His providence! But if He wants you to know He will show you and gives you the choice to respond. It is all how you respond! “Let your yea be yea or your nay be nay” It can’t be maybe.

    I do agree that we have to work because we need to prepare the fields for Him to send the rain. But all due respect, if you believe that God isn’t going to help. Your work is vain because it’s being built on sand, and not on Jesus Christ the Rock. He’s the One that gives us the strong hands to work, and the foundation to work on. I am not trying to cause you any harm or hurt feelings but I need to defend my convictions.

    OK, the fact that there is no real evidence points to the fact that it isn’t true. You have just as much evidence for that as I do for an invisible ethereal unicorn in the trunk of my car. Good luck disproving either of them, because it isn’t possible.

  • thelionoftruth

    If over 4000 years of written evidence doesn’t sway your beliefs nothing appears to intellectually become a
    reality to your life you simply cannot prove anything your life’s reality becomes a game! If that’s what you want stay in it! Again it’s your choice! Don’t let me talk you into what you do not want in your life.

    You consider the Bible to be evidence? The Bible is unreliable and has a huge amount of errors and inconsistancies.

    No, chance isn’t hope. Of course, it would be nice if we got to live forever in a wonderland, but I think you touched on why religion was created here. People are afraid of death. They are afraid of what comes after death, because we don’t know. That could be widened to that people create religion because they are afraid of the unknown.

  • thelionoftruth

    And I say God reveals the after death experience to
    you when you seek Him. What is to be feared explicitly is not to accept the offer to keep existing when you are truly given the opportunity to and don’t at least accept the Gift or challenge that maybe possible!
