Barack Obama’s most recent weekly address was especially important as the nation was poised to celebrate its 239th anniversary of independence. As per usual, Obama shared the importance of the holiday – both historically and culturally.

He said his family would be spending the day “outdoors, grilling burgers, hot dogs, watching the fireworks with our family and friends.”

Obama also took the opportunity to announce Independence Day is also his daughter Malia’s birthday.

Taking a look back at the nation’s roots, Obama’s address included an appreciative nod to those who secured our freedom throughout the arduous battle culminating in the 1776 adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

He explained that, on that day, “our founding patriots proclaimed our independence, declaring all of us are equal, endowed by our Creator, with certain unalienable rights – including the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

His remarks also included an expression of support for the U.S. Women’s National Team, then still on its way to a World Cup victory.

For some conservative media outlets, however, this story’s hook involved what his address did not contain: a direct mention of God.

As Jim Hoft wrote for The Gateway Pundit, Obama has included the phrase “God bless you” in each of his last two Independence Day addresses. This year, however, he signed off with: “Thanks, everybody. From my family to yours, have a safe and happy Fourth of July.”

In Hoft’s opinion, this omission is evidence that, as Obama nears the end of his second term, “more and more of who the man is, and what he truly stands for, is beginning to seep out.”

The Blaze’s Dave Urbanski also presented Obama’s comments in light of their more secular tone, encouraging readers to “be the judge.”

Many took him up on the offer, expressing outrage over Obama’s failure to invoke God.

“There is no room for God in a progressive, marxist [sic] regime,” one critic wrote, “so no surprise there was no mention of the Deity.”

Did Obama’s decision to omit a closing reference to God offend you? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

As illegal immigrants celebrate their crimes in the street and gay weddings are being officiated from coast to coast, the only apparent downside for many in the left-leaning media is a dearth of bigotry about which to stoke outrage.

A recent Huffington Post article, for example, served as both an advertorial for a feminist coloring book obviously not aimed at the medium’s typical audience and as a warning against sexist bathroom signs. The book, Badass Feminist Coloring Book, includes black-and-white sketches of notable feminists along with selected quotes.

Hari Konabolu’s entry includes the observation: “We live in a world that is so sexist that women still can’t wear pants on public restroom signs.”

Ignoring the obvious fallacy of using identical silhouettes to distinguish two separate facilities, Konabolu’s comment was roundly attacked by many Huffington Post readers.

“Its [sic] called telling the difference between mens [sic] and women bathrooms,” one critic wrote. “If that is feminism I guess I missed the boat.”

Feminism in general was the object of ridicule among many readers, including one who wondered why a coloring page featuring a “torn apart fetus” and a “happy, smiling feminist” wasn’t included in the book.

For author Priscilla Frank, however, this crass and deeply ideological work is the perfect gift for “the powerful ladies in your life.”

Capture

A few of the pages included in the article ranged in subject matter from an image of a breastfeeding mom to a depiction of Wagatwe Wanjuki alongside a sign declaring: “F—k what you heard.”

Author Ijeoma Oluo described the intention behind the unorthodox coloring book in its motto: “You’re never too old for coloring books & you’re never too young for feminism.”

She went on to explain that she spends “a lot of time neck-deep in misogyny and racism” – a charge notably difficult to quantify or disprove.  Her story and the resulting book, however, did serve to win Frank over as a fervent supporter.

“Needless to say,” she wrote in her review, “we love everything about this project.”

Read More and Comment: Ret. Vice Chief Of Staff: Obama Administration Does Anything Iranians Tell Them To Do]]>
Retired Army three-star general and former Army Asst. Vice Chief of Staff Jay Garner told Howard Altman of The Tampa Tribune that the U.S. Administration is taking orders from Tehran not to arm the Kurdish militia in northern Iraq and Syria.

“The Iranians have told the administration not to arm the Kurds. They back the government in Baghdad, which is a puppet government to Iran. Our administration is so immersed in this nuclear deal (with Iran) that I think they will do anything the Iranians tell them to do,” Garner said.

Garner is convinced that the Kurds can defeat Islamic State if they receive the necessary weapons. He claims that if the U.S. would give the Kurds A-10 Thunderbolt IIs and Apache attack helicopters, Javelin and TOW anti-tank weapons, 81 mm mortars, and M113 armored personnel carriers and armored Humvees, they would be able to continue their advances toward Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in Iraq.

“They have over 600 miles of frontage,” Garner said. “They have to guard the whole front and all that they have is light infantry.”

The Kurds need anti-tank weapons to eliminate the threat of the truck bombs Islamic State uses. Islamic State now uses three plates of armor to stop RPG’s from destroying their truck bombs that are often packed with thousands of pounds of explosives.

“ISIS would have totally controlled the Baji oil field and all of Kirkuk had the Peshmerga not defended it. Losing Kirkuk would have changed the entire war, because there are billions of dollars in oil flowing through there,” Garner said.

“The Kurds have lost close to 5,000 troops if not more. I don’t know how many have been injured probably many thousands. Most of that is because they don’t have the weapons they need. Most of the casualties would have been averted had they been supplied correctly,” he added.

Garner doesn’t have any illusions the Obama administration will heed his advice, which is based on his expertise on the Kurds and Iraq.

“There is a policy in the State Department that says you can only give stuff to recognized governments,” Garner said, adding that the rationale is bunk given past realities. “We gave tons of stuff to the Contras. Charlie Wilson gave more Stingers than we had in the inventory to the rebels in Afghanistan back in the ‘80s. We’ve done that before for our convenience, but we are overlooking that now.”

Last week, Western Journalism reported that Arab officials had told the British paper The Telegraph that the Obama administration is preventing Arab states from supplying weapons directly to the Kurdish militias.

Jay Garner was Commanding General of the Joint Task Force Bravo during Operation Provide Comfort in northern Iraq after Operation Desert Storm. He retired in 1997 but went back to Iraq in 2003 as the head of the Office for Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance, Iraq.

He knows the Kurds very well and visits Kurdistan frequently. He is sure that Iraq as we know it doesn’t exist anymore and blasted Obama’s policy of preserving the unity of Iraq.

“It is a fool’s folly to think you can take a bunch of lines that were drawn in the 1920s on a map without any regard to ethnicity, religion or tribes and think you can hammer all that together,” says Garner. “When I sit down with my Kurdish friends and my Sunni friends, they all say the same thing. ‘We all hate each other. We’ve hated each other for 1,400 years. It is not going to change so why in the hell do you think you can make us live together. You can’t. It is not going to happen in Iraq and it is not going to happen in Syria.”

Garner thinks the Obama administration doesn’t have a clue what is going on in Iraq

“The guys in Washington, both the administration and Congress, none of them really knows what the hell is going on,” he said. “Kurdish Iraq is the Iraq we wanted to have. Kurdistan is what we wanted Iraq to be.”

He said that the Kurds are more pro-American than Americans are and that they look to the U.S. as a model for their future state. The Kurdish Minister of Interior wrote to Garner that the Kurds have great respect for the American Independence Day because it gives them hope

Like Americans, we dream of freedom to achieve our hopes and dreams in peace and cooperation. This is one of the reasons why we are very happy to share a strong friendship with America and its people because I think our views on these goals are the same.

The Kurds are also the only people in the Middle East who are pro-Israel. A Jerusalem Post correspondent who visited the Kurdish autonomous area in Iraq last month discovered that bookshops in Erbil sell books about Israel’s history and its leaders. The Kurds admire the Israelis because they saw how they succeeded in building a flourishing democratic state despite violent Arab opposition in a part of the world where virtually all states are dictatorships.

Today, the Peshmerga proved again that they know how to defeat Islamic State. They were able to repel a 600-strong ISIS attack on villages and oil installations south of Kirkuk in northern Iraq.

“More than 600 ISIS fighters launched an attack on Talwra, Big Homeyra, Small Homeyra, Al-Murra and Shahid villages, but they have been defeated by Peshmega,” a Peshmerga officer told Rudaw News in Kurdistan.

The Kurds received air support from the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State.

A Tucson-based paper documents how because the U.S. border fence with Mexico is so high, many attempting to cross are suffering severe injuries. Furthermore, those treated are often not able to pay their hospital costs.

Perla Trevizo for the Arizona Daily Star documents a spike of illegal immigrants, “especially women – getting hurt trying to jump the border fence. They think incorrectly, that the jump will be easier than making the treacherous trek through the 100-degree desert.”

This year the Mexican Consulate in Tucson has seen more people needing medical attention after falling from the border fence than from crossing the desert, said Ricardo Pineda, the consul general. So far this year, there have been 37 cases of injured Mexican migrants. In all of 2014 Pineda’s office reported 56 cases. That includes all injuries, not just falling from the fence.

Trevizo also noted that Banner-University Medical Center brings in about 50 crossers a year, according to a spokeswoman for the hospital. Injuries are from both the fence and the desert, and are mainly fractures and lacerations. “We bill these patients, but few are able to pay anything, so most of the charges, are written off,” hospital spokeswoman Katie Riley told the Daily Star.

Another hospital, Tucson Medical Center, told the publication they provided $13.6 million in uncompensated care costs, including charity care, bad debt, and discounts for the uninsured. The federal government used to subsidize them, but that source is no longer available.

“What surprises us is that people continue to jump from heights that can be the equivalent of a two- or even three story house,” said Fernando Valdez, Mexico’s deputy consul general in Nogales. “But we hear they feel pressured to do it because they are holding the line or they start insulting them, telling them to jump.”

It was late on a Friday afternoon when a Texas man who had just finished working on his truck outside his suburban home suddenly found himself in a fight for his life. Authorities say the 29-year-old resident of the Mission Bend neighborhood near Houston was confronted by an assailant with a gun who had casually crossed the street, walked up, pulled his weapon, and tried to force the victim back into the house.

That’s when the victim fought back — even with his hands tied behind his back — and in the struggle took a shot to the leg. Reportedly, the bullet narrowly missed, severing a critical blood vessel whose rupture could have caused the man to bleed to death. After the shot rang out, the victim crawled desperately toward the street where he tried to get the attention of passing motorists. The shooter casually walked away.

Surveillance video has been released by the man’s girlfriend in the hope that the images of the attacker will help lead to his arrest. By clicking on the video above, you can watch a report by KHOU-TV on the broad-daylight attack and the shooting victim’s heroic fight against his assailant.

Authorities say the unidentified victim of the assault is recovering from his wound.

ANALYSIS

Southern Israel was again attacked with rockets on Friday–but this time, they did not come from Gaza.

Islamic State branch Walayat Sinai (Sinai Province) claimed responsibility for the firing of three Grad rockets at Israel. At 4.20 PM on Friday, sirens went off in southern Israel; and residents sped to their security rooms. A short time later, three rockets exploded in open fields. No damage and casualties were reported.

The attack came at a moment when the Egyptian authorities claimed that the situation in Sinai was under control again after the Islamic State assault on the Egyptian army Wednesday. Sixty-four soldiers, as well as 90 Islamist fighters, died in a wave of attacks on army checkpoints and positions in the Sinai Peninsula.

On Saturday, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said that the assault was, in fact, an attempt to seize territory and to set up an extremist state in Sinai.

He said that Valiyat Sinai had tried to announce “an Islamic state, in their concept, an Islamic State in Sinai. These are the messages, very simply, that they are putting out to us.”

He then added that the area was now under the control of the army again. Al-Sisi praised the army for “foiling a very big plan.”

“No one can impose on the Egyptians something they don’t want. To reach the Egyptians they have to pass through the army, the sons of Egypt,” he said.

On Sunday, it became clear that the battle in Sinai is far from over. The Egyptian newspaper al-Yom al-Sabah reported that the Egyptian security forces were conducting heavy anti-ISIS operations in northern Sinai. Apache helicopters and infantry took part in the operation against Wayilat Sinai.

Reuters later reported the Egyptian army killed 63 members of Walayat Sinai during the operation in the area of Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid in northern Sinai. A spokesman for the Egyptian army claimed that 241 terrorists were killed as of Wednesday.

Earlier, the Egyptian army cracked down on the Muslim Brotherhood after it accused the organization of cooperation with Islamic State to destabilize Egypt. In a raid on Wednesday evening, the army killed nine prominent Brotherhood members. This led to a call to the public by the Muslim Brotherhood to “rise in revolt to defend your homeland.”

The young members of the movement think the time has come to use terrorism to undermine al-Sisi’s regime. The new spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Montasser, even called for “a revolution that would decapitate heads.”

In the short term, it is unlikely that the current leadership will openly join the young members in the violent struggle. Such a move would cost the movement the support of the current U.S. administration, and probably Turkey.

It is clear, however, that the Muslim Brotherhood is changing direction in Egypt. The old Muslim Brotherhood that sought to establish its goals by non-violent means is dying and has lost the support of the Egyptian people after the mismanagement of the country during Mohammad Morsi’s presidency. Most of the Brotherhood’s leaders have been arrested since the military coup and are now in jail again. Some of them (Including Morsi) are facing the death penalty.

So in the long term, we can expect Muslim Brotherhood members to join ISIS in Egypt.

Something similar is happening now in Gaza, where Hamas is losing support and is slowly starting to realize that Islamic State is threatening its thus-far uncontested rule.

On Friday, senior Hamas official Musa Abu Marzouk admitted for the first time that ISIS has a presence in Gaza. In an interview with Al Quds TV, Marzouk responded to a recent video from Islamic State in Syria in which ISIS threatened to take over Gaza.

“Why do they want to turn Gaza into a sea of blood, and what capabilities does this group have to threaten like this?” Marzouk asked. He ridiculed the power of the group in Gaza and claimed that Hamas would stamp out ISIS soon. Marzouk said that ISIS has only dozens of supporters in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli experts, however think that ISIS’ presence in Gaza is much larger than what Marzouk claims. They estimate that Islamic State has at least hundreds of members in Gaza, and some even say that the organization already has a few thousand members or affiliated terrorists.

Israel is slowly coming to terms with the new reality on its southern border but is not so sure that Hamas is against the rise of Islamic State in Gaza and Sinai.

The head of the IDF division that deals with Gaza, Maj.Gen. Yoav Mordechai, told Al-Jazeera News that the IDF has acquired intelligence about Hamas’ support for ISIS activities in Sinai. He said that Hamas is providing weaponry and other support to Wilayat Sinai and that it smuggled wounded ISIS fighters into Gaza to give them medical treatment. Mordechai added that Hamas commander Abdullah Kishta is training Islamic State terrorists in Sinai and that the IDF has solid proof of this direct support for ISIS by Hamas.

The IDF is currently beefing up its presence on the southern border near Northern Sinai and is monitoring the fighting in Sinai, according to Israel Radio.

The Israeli Army knows that the day is approaching when Wayalat Sinai will turn its weapons to Israel. As Wednesday’s coordinated string of attacks on the Egyptian army and Friday’s rockets on Israel showed, Islamic State in Sinai is building up its military capabilities and is already in the possession of heavy weapons.

In the long run, Israel can expect more cross-border attacks and missiles on a daily basis. These attacks will constitute a double-edged sword for the Islamic State affiliate. It will put more pressure on Israel and make life unbearable in the Israeli communities along the border; and on the other hand, it could drive a wedge in the excellent relations between the IDF and the Egyptian army. The IDF cannot afford to sit on its hands when Islamic State attacks Israel from Gaza, but the Egyptians will not tolerate Israeli counterattacks on its soil.

So a year after the Third Gaza War ended, Israel is gearing up for the next confrontation in the south.

Read More and Comment: Sheriff Joe Just Used These 2 BOLD Words To Describe Obama’s Birth Certificate]]>
He’s 83 years old, running for reelection to a seventh term, battling federal contempt charges, and as feisty as ever — the peace officer often called “America’s Toughest Sheriff” — Joe Arpaio, chief lawman of Maricopa County, Az. And now Arpaio is proving once again just how tough and feisty he really is by jumping back into a controversy he helped kindle years ago — the argument over the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate.

One might think that, given his troubles with the Obama Justice Department, Sheriff Joe would steer clear of that long-simmering controversy. But as WND reports, Arpaio waded back into the treacherous political waters surrounding the president’s birth certificate in a weekend radio interview. Speaking with Aaron Klein Investigative Radio, Sheriff Joe matter-of-factly reiterated what he has frequently contended:

“I’ve been in law enforcement 55 years,” stated Arpaio. “I think I know a fraudulent, fake document. I’m not a computer expert. I rely on my people. But I’m pretty well convinced it’s a fake document.”

As WND points out, the radio interview was focused primarily on Donald Trump and the raging firestorm over the GOP presidential candidate’s statements about illegal immigrants. Arpaio and Trump have both claimed that Obama’s birth certificate — released by the White House in 2011 and indicating he was born in a hospital in Hawaii — may be a fake.

Sheriff Joe, you might recall, appointed an investigative “posse” to gather evidence on the document’s origins. The WND post notes that “Arpaio’s appointed lead investigator on the birth-certificate case, Mike Zullo, has been promising the release of ‘universe-shattering’ information regarding the document” — evidence that has not yet been presented.

By clicking on the video above, you can listen to the relevant portion of the Aaron Klein interview with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, in which the Maricopa County lawman first addresses the Trump brouhaha, then segues into the discussion of the Obama birth certificate.

What do you think — should Sheriff Joe drop the birth certificate matter or keep pursuing the truth? Share your opinion by commenting below.

Watch the Video and Comment: WATCH: Pastors Raised THIS Above US Flag, And They’re Hoping It Will Spark A Powerful Movement]]>

Two North Carolina Baptist pastors have started a movement inspired by the Supreme Court ruling sanctioning same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

Pastor Rit Varriale of the Elizabeth Baptist Church and Walter Wilson of the Focus Missionary Baptist Church, both of Shelby, N.C., launched the website God Before Government, which encourages churches to put the Christian flag above the American flag. From the site:

This new approach to flag etiquette symbolizes that our service and commitment to God is greater than our service and commitment to government – especially a government that coerces us to violate our commitments to God.

As Christian Fighter Pilot points out, putting any flag above the American flag technically violates U.S. Flag Code, and thus U.S. law, though it is generally unenforceable. “Our typical flag etiquette is to have the American flag above the Christian flag,” Varriale told WBTV. “But when you stop and think about it, it should be our commitment to God first, then our commitment to country.”

Varriale decided to put the Christian flag above the American flag after driving by Wilson’s church one day and seeing how he had done it. Wilson told the Charlotte Fox affiliate how he was inspired to do it: “As I was changing the rope one day, the Lord just laid on me that he is first and when he told me that, I switched the flags around.”

Varriale acknowledges the LGBT community has been more bold for their cause than has his side. “The reality is, they have been willing to sacrifice more and be more bold for their cause than the church of Jesus Christ for serving God, and that’s got to change,” he said.

The two churches came together for a Sunday flag raising. You can see some photos from the service below:

Read More and Comment: This Hollywood Conservative Just Slapped Down The PC Left With An Epic Confederate Flag Rant]]>
As Western Journalism reported last week, pro golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson has vowed to remove the image of the Confederate flag from the classic General Lee car he bought after the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard ceased production. Watson has said he’ll replace the Confederate flag atop the iconic Dodge Charger with an American flag — a move that drew a fair amount of criticism on social media from folks who believe the golfer caved to the PC purge some argue is now in full force.

The cable network TV Land has also shown its PC colors by yanking reruns of The Dukes of Hazzard from its programming lineup — not citing any offensive content of the show in terms of racist characters or themes, just the controversy over the flag that adorned the bright orange car in which the Duke boys drove around fictional Hazzard County.

Now, Christian actor and outspoken Hollywood conservative Kevin Sorbo has jumped into the controversy over the Confederate flag and the disappearance of the Dukes from television. An actor and director best known for his title role in TV’s Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, in addition to the recent movie God’s Not Dead, Sorbo cut loose with an epic rant on his Facebook page in which he slammed the “PC crowd” as “nuts,” “insane,” and “crazy” for pulling The Dukes of Hazzard.

Sorbo wondered what’s next to be purged — Hogan’s Heros, The Jeffersons, All in the Family?

Sorbo’s anger at the media’s political correctness obviously struck a chord and was generally well-received, as evidenced by what commenters had to say about his emotion-packed rant. Below, you can see what the actor had to say, as well as take a look at a few of the responses that raise compelling points about who was really behind the effort to maintain the practice of slavery.

Americans love to add accessories to their everyday items, especially their cell phones. But a new cell phone case has come out that police are none too pleased with because at first glance it could be confused with a real gun sticking out of someone’s pocket.

The new cell phone case is made to look like a plastic pistol grip and trigger assembly. The grip allows for a phone to be mounted above it with the pistol grip handle serving as a handle to let the caller hold the cell phone to his ear. But when the phone itself is slipped deep into a user’s pants pocket, only the pistol grip-like part is left visible to passersby. The case gives the appearance of a gun sticking out of someone’s pocket.

Because of that illusion, law enforcement agencies are not too happy about the product. Calling it “not a cool product or a good idea,” the Ocean County, N.J., prosecutor’s office slammed the case as dangerous.

On its Facebook page, the prosecutor’s office attacked the new cell phone holder being sold by Japan Trend Shop for $49.

“A police officer’s job is hard enough, without having to make a split second decision in the dark of night when someone decides without thinking to pull this out while stopped for a motor vehicle violation,” the prosecutor’s office wrote on June 29.

The Jersey prosecutor’s office wasn’t alone in condemning the product. Patrick Lynch, president of New York’s Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, told the New York Daily News that the money earned from sales of the case is “blood money.”

Lynch also said that the cell phone cases put the lives of people in danger, “both the lives of those who carry it and the police officers whose job it is to rid the street of illegal guns.”

Others worry that if cops see someone with the case, they may shoot first and ask questions later.

Only a day after criticism, Japan Trend Shop removed the item from its website. But the product is still available on Amazon.com.

The suspect arrested for the shooting death of a woman out for a walk along San Francisco’s Pier 14 is an illegal immigrant with seven felony convictions who had been deported five times. The man now in police custody has reportedly acknowledged that he pulled the trigger. In an exclusive jailhouse interview with ABC affiliate KGO-TV, Francisco Sanchez claimed he found the gun that he admittedly fired “wrapped in a T-shirt and that it went off when he picked it up.”

Sanchez also told KGO that he returned to San Francisco after being deported because he knew it was a sanctuary city “where he would not be pursued by immigration officials.”

On ABC’s This Week on Sunday, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, blasted the sanctuary city policy and criticized the Obama administration for “releasing criminals back onto the streets.” As CNS News reports, Goodlatte was discussing the apparently random murder of the 32-year-old woman in San Francisco.

The CNS News report notes: “Because San Francisco is a ‘sanctuary city,’ local authorities did not honor a U.S. Customs and Enforcement Agency detainer for Francisco Sanchez. The detainer could have kept Sanchez in jail until ICE officials picked him up.” Instead, the man suspected of killing Kate Steinle had been released by San Francisco authorities after the district attorney’s office reportedly declined to prosecute the illegal immigrant.

“Why did they ever turn him over to them when they could have deported him, or they could have prosecuted him for illegally reentering the country four times and send him to prison? Either way, Kate Steinle would be safe,” Rep. Goodlatte told This Week host George Stephanopoulos.

The Republican head of the House Judiciary Committee, according to the CNS News post, focused his criticism on San Francisco as well as the policies of the Obama administration in going easy on criminal aliens in sanctuary cities. “‘…this administration is releasing criminals back onto the streets themselves. So there’s fault to be borne by both,’ Goodlatte said.”

The Daily Caller notes that sanctuary city policies — now coming under renewed scrutiny in the wake of the tragic killing of the woman in San Francisco — are in place in about 140 U.S. cities and are supported by all four Democrat candidates for president.

As a senator from New York, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, twice made public statements backing sanctuary cities. In 2008, she and two other Democratic candidates, Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Virginia U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, voted against an amendment that would block federal funds from going to sanctuary cities. And last year, as governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley announced that the Baltimore city jail would stop honoring requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to hold illegal aliens until they could be deported.

Today, we celebrate. Freedom, fireworks, meat… ‘Merica. It’s the 4th of July!

It’s on this day that we remember our heritage, our founders, those brave men and women of the very first Tea Party who stood and said “No!” to unrepresented taxation, “No!” to state religion, and “Yes!” to independence. Theirs is a courage that has grown into an American legacy of peace through strength and laid the foundation for both the greatest fighting force and peacekeeping entity the world has ever seen.

In honor of this most American of holidays, we give you the ever-inspirational President Reagan. Happy 4th of July, everyone!

This is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face. Their policy of accommodation is appeasement…

If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin? Should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the Pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the Patriots at Concord have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the first shot heard round the world?

You and I have the courage to say there is a price we will not pay. There is a point beyond which they must not advance… you and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope on earth.

Also, here’s a stern eagle. ‘Merica.

4th of July

Read More and Comment: The Enemy Within Is Now Setting The Narrative]]>

“What good fortune for governments that the people do not think.” – Adolf Hitler

America has now been warned by the Department of Homeland Security that there might be Islamic terror attacks on the 4th of July. Additionally, a “chilling new map” reveals where the FBI is preparing for the Islamic State to strike.

The DHS and FBI even recently posted a map where they would set up command posts within the United States so you can report things you may find suspicious. Or are they trying to find those who are willing to come forward to be informants? Apparently, there are those among us who are more than willing to be useful to their own demise.  What, will the enemies not see this post?  How ridiculously obvious can this get before America awakens to who her real enemies are?

Keep in mind that DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson stated that it was his job to “give voice to the plight of the Muslims.” It’s the same department to which Barack Hussein Obama has appointed Muslims with terrorist ties to oversee the American people (Deuteronomy 28:36; Jeremiah 5:6).

This administration has been involved in funding, training, supplying, and even entertaining America’s sworn enemies at the people’s White House.

Don’t forget that Barack Hussein Obama has sued governors in the United States for upholding border control laws and has acted outside of his constitutional authority by opening up the floodgates to illegals coming in through the southern border. His administration has released tens of thousands of illegal immigrant felons from American prisons onto the streets to prey upon the innocent.

Furthermore, he’s granted asylum to Muslims from Syria to colonize by the thousands in American cities while attacking America’s military, America’s Christians, and Constitutional Patriots (Deuteronomy 28:52).

He’s even gone so far as to force the US military to submit to sharia during Ramadan.

We now have over 1,063 documented transgressions concerning this president’s treason, corruption, lies, and lawlessness. Article 2, Section 4 of The United States Constitution says that he should have been impeached for one simple misdemeanor.

The Obama administration has been exposed for its engagement in scandal after scandal, including:

Let’s not forget the IRS targeting of Conservative groups.

And do not forget about the race card that has been played over and over again in an attempt to divide and conquer by stirring up domestic insurrection.

Since September 11, 2001, the federal government has asked the American people to give up the rights that God has given, which her sons and daughters–in the hundreds of thousands–have fought, bled, and died to secure. (John 15:13)

This current administration, along with the Bush administration, has done more to destroy this country than any foreign country could have ever dreamed of doing by attacking us.

The unconstitutional Patriot Act, the Transportation Security Administration, and other unconstitutional departments and bureaus have been contrived to strip the American people of their God-given rights (Article 4 of the Bill of Rights). And that is the fruit!

Why, in a state of terror threats, is this administration attempting to disarm you? A foreign government could only have dreamed of getting this far in America (Jeremiah 21:4; Article 2 Bill of Rights).

And all of this has been done in the light of day (Jeremiah 5:21-22).

Who is profiting from the use of terror? Who is asking you to give up your rights? You would think with all of these new bureaucracies that are now in place that we would not have a thing to worry about. Yet, more fear is the narrative pushed at every given turn.

“You can get people to do anything with the use of fear.” -Congressman Jim McDermott after September 11, 2001

What is it that Americans need before they lawfully respond to the crimes of this administration? (Article 2, Section 4 United States Constitution; Isaiah 51:4)

As it stands now, you are being conditioned for another attack from a foreign enemy.

“Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.” –Adolph Hitler

Remember what Condoleeza Rice said of Joseph Stalin? “Terror was the creation to mold politically the control that they wanted.”

Who has attacked America more in the wake of September 11, 2001 than the corrupt in your government? (Leviticus 26:16)

“Yet, America, we were warned from the 4th President of the United States, “If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” -Abraham Lincoln

Also, former French military intelligence agent Pierre-Henry Bunel wrote in the April/June 2004 edition of World Affairs:

The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive the ‘TV watcher’ to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money.

So, I ask America, who is the enemy? (Leviticus 26:14-46; Deuteronomy 28:63) The Obama Administration says it’s you, but the truth is the exact opposite.

This post originally appeared on Western Journalism - Equipping You With The Truth



Read More and Comment: Thanks To The American Church, SCOTUS Has Legalized ‘Gay Marriage’]]>
By now, everyone on the planet knows that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has rendered a decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide. In a landmark 5-4 decision, Justices Anthony Kennedy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Elena Kagan ruled that states may not prohibit homosexual couples from getting “married.” The reasoning of their decision was based on the 14th Amendment’s “Due Process” clause.

Writing for the majority, Justice Kennedy said: “Under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, no State shall ‘deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.’ The fundamental liberties protected by this Clause include most of the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights.”

Obviously, there is nothing in the Bill of Rights specifically about the right of homosexuals to “marry.” But there is something in the Bill of Rights specifically about the right to keep and bear arms. Using the reasoning and conclusion of the Court’s homosexual “marriage” ruling, states have absolutely no authority to deny recognition of concealed carry permits that have been issued in other states. In other words, if the 14th Amendment protects an unspecified right (same-sex “marriage”), it certainly protects a specified right (the right to keep and bear arms). And since some states recognize the right of citizens to openly carry firearms, this right should also be determined to be protected by the 14th Amendment. If states must recognize driver’s licenses (and now same-sex “marriage” licenses) issued in other states, it is now clear that they must also be required to recognize concealed weapon licenses issued in other states.

See this report:

SCOTUS Same-sex Marriage Decision May Have Just Legalized The Concealed Carry Of Loaded Firearms Across All 50 States, Nullifying Gun Laws Everywhere  

It should be obvious to any objective person that by providing 14th Amendment protection to homosexual “marriage,” SCOTUS has banned most gun control laws throughout the country. However, I seriously doubt that the five justices passing the same-sex “marriage” decision had gun control in mind. Nevertheless, that shouldn’t stop gun rights activists from taking advantage of the SCOTUS decision.

Many libertarian jurists are lauding the SCOTUS same-sex decision as a victory for the right of individuals to enter into contracts with one another. But marriage is more than a “contract.” It is an institution–an institution created by GOD. No human authority can redefine what our Creator has already defined in both revealed and Natural Law. Forevermore, true marriage can only be between a man and a woman–a SCOTUS decision notwithstanding.

Senator Rand Paul wisely noted: “While I disagree with Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage, I believe that all Americans have the right to contract.

“The Constitution is silent on the question of marriage because marriage has always been a local issue. Our founding fathers went to the local courthouse to be married, not to Washington, D.C.

“I’ve often said I don’t want my guns or my marriage registered in Washington.

“Those who disagree with the recent Supreme Court ruling argue that the court should not overturn the will of legislative majorities. Those who favor the Supreme Court ruling argue that the 14th Amendment protects rights from legislative majorities.

“Do consenting adults have a right to contract with other consenting adults? Supporters of the Supreme Court’s decision argue yes but they argue no when it comes to economic liberties, like contracts regarding wages.

“It seems some rights are more equal than others.

“Marriage, though a contract, is also more than just a simple contract.

“I acknowledge the right to contract in all economic and personal spheres, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a danger that a government that involves itself in every nook and cranny of our lives won’t now enforce definitions that conflict with sincerely felt religious convictions of others.

“Some have argued that the Supreme Court’s ruling will now involve the police power of the state in churches, church schools, church hospitals.

“This may well become the next step, and I for one will stand ready to resist any intrusion of government into the religious sphere.

“Justice Clarence Thomas is correct in his dissent when he says: ‘In the American legal tradition, liberty has long been understood as individual freedom from governmental action, not as a right to a particular governmental entitlement.’

“The government should not prevent people from making contracts but that does not mean that the government must confer a special imprimatur upon a new definition of marriage.

“Perhaps the time has come to examine whether or not governmental recognition of marriage is a good idea, for either party.”

See the report here:

Rand Paul: Government Should Get Out of the Marriage Business Altogether

Note that Dr. Paul correctly recognized that the SCOTUS attempted to render a “redefinition” of marriage. That it did.

Since the beginning of human history (not to mention Western Civilization), marriage has been recognized as being between a man and a woman. Again, marriage is much more than a civil contract.

As I have noted several times, the right of civil contracts includes the right of homosexuals to enter into civil unions. But marriage is NOT a civil union. Nor is it merely a civil contract. In fact, real marriage is NOT a civil matter at all. It is a spiritual matter. Civil governments can recognize or not recognize all they want; it doesn’t change the definition of marriage one iota. Civil governments can no more redefine marriage than they can redefine worship or prayer. Marriage is a divine institution. Therefore, it is completely outside the scope and jurisdiction of SCOTUS or any other civil authority.

The problem is that many years ago, the Church decided to allow civil government licensing authority over marriage. When they did this, they absconded divine authority over marriage and reduced it into nothing more than just another government-sanctioned civil contract. Now the chickens have come home to roost.

The problem is not SCOTUS; the problem is the CHURCH.

Rand Paul is right: “Perhaps the time has come to examine whether or not governmental recognition of marriage is a good idea, for either party.”

So far, the only State to have the correct response to the SCOTUS decision is the State of Alabama, led by my friend Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore. The State of Alabama is encouraging county courthouses to not issue ANY marriage licenses. And this is exactly what many Alabama counties are doing. This strategy should be replicated by all fifty states and the counties within those states.

Furthermore, pastors across the country should stop performing ALL marriages that are licensed by the State. In other words, the Church should do what it did for some 1,800+ years of Church history: keep the State out of the marriage business.

But all of that doesn’t change the intention of the Court decision and the agenda of the radical secularists who are the impetus behind the decision and their attempt to expunge all semblances of Christianity (and morality) from America’s public life.

In the majority decision, Justice Kennedy attempted to throw people of faith a bone by stating: “Finally, it must be emphasized that religions, and those who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advocate with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine precepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned. The First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure they have long revered.”

However, notice that Kennedy said that religious people may “advocate” for traditional marriage, but he said nothing about non-compliance. What will happen to those pastors and churches that refuse to “marry” same-sex couples? If you think for one minute that radical homosexuals are going to be content with a Supreme Court decision that doesn’t have enforcement power, you are very mistaken.

Already, allies of the militant homosexual agenda are promoting public censorship and the loss of tax exempt status for those churches that refuse to submit to the Supreme Court decision.

My friend Cal Thomas got it right: “Given their political clout and antipathy to Christian doctrines, some gay activists are likely to go after the tax-exempt status of Christian colleges that prohibit cohabitation of unmarried students, or openly homosexual ones, as well as churches that refuse to marry them. As with legal challenges to the owners of bakeries that have been in the news for refusing to bake a cake for same-sex weddings, activists who demand total conformity to their agenda will seek to put out of business and silence anyone who believes differently.”

See Cal’s column here:

You’ve Been Warned, America, Gay Marriage Is Just The Beginning

Cal is exactly right. The purge has already begun.

“CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin said that it wasn’t legal ‘to talk about gay people the way Justice Scalia used to talk about gay people’ while recounting Scalia’s prior dissent in Lawrence v. Texas on Friday’s ‘CNN Newsroom.’”

See the report here:

CNN’s Toobin: Not ‘Legal’ For Scalia To Talk About Gay People Like He Used To

Again, this is from CNN’s SENIOR LEGAL ANALYST. “Beam me up, Mr. Speaker.” Anti-Christian purgers are already advocating the cancellation of the right of free speech in the wake of the SCOTUS decision.

Look at this: “A newspaper in Harrisburg, PA has announced henceforth it intends to censor certain views about marriage deemed no better than racism, sexism, anti-Semitism.

“John L. Micek, editorial page editor and formerly state capital reporter, made the announcement shortly after the Supreme Court handed down its imposition of gay marriage on the county. Micek wrote:

“‘As a result of Friday’s ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same sex marriage.’ In a Tweet later in the day, Micek doubled down, ‘This is not hard: We would not print racist, sexist, or anti-Semitic letters. To that we add homophobic ones. Pretty simple.’”

Here is the report:

Pennsylvania Newspaper Censors All Dissent On Same-sex Marriage

You can take this to the bank: there will be hundreds of local and State laws reflecting the SCOTUS decision and hundreds of lawsuits forthcoming against people who seek to live by their religious convictions by not directly participating in homosexual “marriages.” And that means there will be hundreds of court decisions ruling in favor of the plaintiffs, hundreds of arrest warrants, civil fines, prison sentences, etc. Anyone who doesn’t see this coming is blind.

Then there is this column written by Mark Oppenheimer, who writes for America’s flagship newspaper, The New York Times, calling for the elimination of tax-exempt status for churches on the heels of the SCOTUS gay “marriage” decision.

See Mark’s column here:

Now’s The Time To End Tax Exemptions For Religious Institutions

You can mark it down: his will not be the last such call.

So, this begs the question, what will all of these Romans 13 “obey-the-government-no-matter-what” preachers do now? When they are told by the IRS and local civil authorities to “marry” homosexuals or lose their tax exemption–or maybe even go to jail–what will they do?

All of this goes back to what I’ve been saying for years: the Church is to blame for this mess. Pastors are to blame for this mess.

For decades, pastors and churches allowed the state to supplant the authority of Christ over them. They volunteered to become creatures of the state by submitting to the IRS 501c3 non-profit, tax-exempt status. By doing so, they forfeited their independence and autonomy (not to mention their spiritual identity and authority) and became nothing more than a state-created non-profit organization. Again, now the chickens are coming home to roost.

Actually, I think it’s time for pastors and churches to decide once and for all to whom they belong and what they are. And if that means losing their precious tax-exempt status, SO BE IT.

For the sake of tax exemption, pastors and churches have stayed mostly silent on virtually every evil contrivance of civil government under the sun. Most of them said nothing when SCOTUS expunged prayer and Bible reading from our schools; most of them said nothing when the Gun Control Act of 1968 (which is almost copied word for word from Adolf Hitler’s gun control act) was passed; most of them said nothing when SCOTUS legalized the murder of unborn babies; most of them said nothing with the Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, indefinite detention of American citizens under NDAA, and just recently, when the Republican Congress collaborated with Barack Obama to cast America’s national sovereignty upon the altar of international “free trade” deals. For the sake of tax exemption, the vast, vast majority of today’s pastors and churches are totally silent about almost EVERYTHING.

So, what will America’s pastors and churches do now? What will they do when they must choose between “marrying” same-sex couples and losing tax exemption? If their track record is any indicator, we know what most of them will do: THEY WILL SUBMIT TO CAESAR.

Plus, the SCOTUS decision opens the door for a host of other possibilities. If every consenting adult has an absolute right to enter into civil contracts, how can a State prohibit polygamy? In his dissenting opinion, Chief Justice Roberts said that the Court’s decision to legalize same-sex “marriage” made the future legalization of polygamy inevitable. Where does it end?

Popular radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh agrees with Justice Roberts. Read Rush’s analysis here:

Rush Limbaugh: Here’s What’s Next For Marriages

And if a State must recognize polygamous “marriages,” what’s next? Where will it end?

And there is one more thing that almost no one is willing to talk about: what is at stake here is the national acceptance of sexual perversion. The SCOTUS decision lends national approbation to an act that our Creator has condemned with the strongest language. (See Romans chapter one.) It has lent national approbation to an act that Western Civilization has always (rightly) regarded as deviant.

Understand this: once any society universally embraces and promotes the sodomite lifestyle, there is no going back. One cannot find a single civilization in history that has survived once homosexuality has become a driving, dominant force over it. It is both a divine and Natural Law. There is a huge difference between recognizing the civil rights of individuals to live immorally (that is a personal matter between the individual and God) and forcing society as a whole to grant societal acceptance and recognition to the immoral act. To quote Rand Paul again: “The government should not prevent people from making contracts but that does not mean that the government must confer a special imprimatur upon a new definition of marriage.” Yet, that is exactly what the Supreme Court has done.

But, once again, the fault is the Church. The Church has refused to be the moral leader of the country. Things like homosexuality are too “controversial” for most pulpits. It is a forbidden subject. And too many churches that have been willing to address the issue have done so with such a lack of love and compassion as to do more harm than good. To not speak the truth is bad; to not speak the truth in love is worse.

And dare I say that many of our Christian churches, schools, colleges, and universities have become breeding grounds for homosexual behavior. The absence of male leadership is epidemic in the Church–and in the home, for that matter. And by leadership, I do not mean dictatorship. But true, godly, strong, kind, loving male leadership has eroded significantly from twentieth, and now twenty-first, century churches.

The Church is the moral rudder of a nation. The SCOTUS decision to legalize same-sex “marriage” is the result of the Church abandoning its moral leadership. The Church surrendered its spiritual and moral authority to the state. Why should it now be surprised when the state chooses to not recognize a moral authority that the Church, itself, refuses to recognize?

P.S. In honor of Independence Day, we are again offering THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS. This is a giant compilation of over 50 of America’s greatest documents in one volume. THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS cannot be found in stores or anywhere else. And this is a limited printing, so our supply will not last long.

Speaking of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, he has a copy of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS, as does former congressman Ron Paul.

So, don’t just shoot off fireworks; give your children and loved ones the documents that birthed the greatest free nation on earth, and let them read the stirring words of our forebears for themselves. Unfortunately, most schools–even private and Christian schools–do not require the reading of these wonderful documents. How much longer before these documents are completely forgotten, or even banned?

Again, this is a limited printing; so order THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS now.

The school board in Fairfax County, Va., overwhelmingly passed a measure last week concerning the district’s sexual education curriculum.

WTTG reported last Thursday that the board voted 10-2 to keep part of the Family Life Education (FLE) curriculum for K-10 students. This means students could learn about gender identity and sexual orientation in the seventh grade. Only members Patricia S. Reed and Elizabeth Schultz voted no.

According to an FLE Fact Sheet, parents will have the opportunity to opt their children out.

“Parents, do you want your children in Kindergarten to hear about same-sex marriage under the guise of families?” Andrea Lafferty, a Fairfax County parent and president of the Traditional Values Coalition, asked parents during the public comment portion of the meeting, according to CNS News. “No!” they shouted.

“Parents, do you want your children in fifth grade to hear about Gonorrhea and Syphilis? No! We want opt outs and we want to keep them safe,” she continued. “Do you want gender identity to be introduced to seventh grade? No! We want opt outs to remain.”

WTTG, coming out of the meeting, found some very divided opinions on the matter. “It’s certainly a step in the right direction of respecting more students and understanding the perspective of other students who have different gender identities or different sexual orientations,” said David Aponte. “The fact is not whether you opt out of the curriculum full of lies, it’s that you shouldn’t be using taxpayer money to develop a curriculum of lies in the first place,” said Kathy Healy.

The Washington, D.C., Fox affiliate caught up with Schultz, one of the board members who voted “no” after the meeting. “I am very concerned that we’re watching a legacy of an environment that is setting this board at odds with parents,” Schultz said.

Certainly policymaking done on the fly without consideration of the people on whom the policy has the greatest level of impact –and to do so without a great degree of care and to make sure that we’re representing the people who have elected us to be here — can only yield bad policy.

“Now our time is going to be distracted and taken away from the real work of the board,” Schultz added. “We should be worried about educating 186,000 students and not about all of this peripheral political stuff.”

Read More and Comment: What Is The Fourth Of July Really About?]]>
The Fourth of July is a very special day for America. But why is it such a special day? Many of us have forgotten why the Fourth of July is so special. In fact, many Americans do not even know what the Fourth of July really is. Our definition of the event is a time for us to party, watch a parade, light fireworks, and drink beer. This has nothing to do with what the Fourth of July is really about, however.

When the War for Independence had reached the second year, Congress decided to send the colonies’ Declaration of Independence to King George III. They chose a delegate from Virginia named Thomas Jefferson to write the document. It took Jefferson days to complete the rough draft. When he was done, the members of Congress almost completely changed it. On the Second of July, Congress declared independence from Great Britain. The final draft of the Declaration of Independence was completed and passed on July Fourth. On July 9th, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud by General George Washington to all of his troops. The reading of the document spurred the hope of the soldiers of the Continental Army because they now knew, more than ever, that they were fighting for a cause that was good, and that hundreds of other people were backing them. Six years later, on September 3, 1783, the Americans won the American Revolutionary War.

On July 3, 1776, John Adams declared: “The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever.”

That is some amazing history that we did not even know about! Why do we not know about this? The answer to this question is simple: we have neglected our duties to learn about our history. We have also allowed our school systems to stop teaching this information to us–not just about this issue but also many other things. Things such as the God-given rights that, slowly but surely, our own government is taking away from us. We as Americans need to start learning about America’s past and the rights that are being stripped from us. One very good way to learn more about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and our rights is to sign up for and take the Institute on the Constitution course and learn about our history.

While the debate over the Confederate battle flag is reaching its peak, one Virginia woman doesn’t seem to have any problem with it at all.

In an interview for the documentary Battle Flag, New York native Karen Cooper described the difference between growing up as a member of the Nation of Islam and living in Virginia. “The Nation of Islam thinks you know the races should be separate, you know black and white,” Cooper said. “And then I came down here, and we were more together, and I just realized ‘Well that can’t be right because there’s a lot of nice white folks.’”

I mean, people waved to me that I’ve never known. The north, they claim that they like black people and they care about black people but it is so segregated, It’s not funny. I’ve felt more welcomed in the south.

Cooper said she joined the Tea Party because she believes in small government principles, that the federal government “should not be controlling every aspect of our life.” She is aware that many Americans link the flag to racism, slavery, and the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), but takes a different view:

Actually, most people don’t even stop to talk to me because I think they’re in such shock to see me out there with the battle flag, they don’t even have the nerve to ask why I’m out there. I’m not advocating slavery or think that it was right. It wasn’t and none of my friends think it was. It was just something that happened. It just didn’t just happen in the South — it happened worldwide.

“I think slavery was a choice,” Cooper continued, acknowledging she could be criticized for her opinion. “And I say that because of what Patrick Henry said: ‘Give me liberty, or give me death.’ If we went back to that kind of slavery — no I couldn’t do it. Give me death.”

I feel I’m a slave now because the federal government does control me. I can’t smoke what I want to smoke. I can’t drink what I want to drink. If I want to put something into my body, it’s my body, not theirs. That’s tyranny.

Cooper believes the flag doesn’t stand for tyranny but “represents freedom.” “It represents a people who stood up to tyranny. By me being out there, I hope you would see that this is not racist,” Cooper said. “How can it be racist if I’m out there with them?”

Read More and Comment: NBC Joins The Gaystopo War On The Catholic Church]]>
The ink on the Supreme Court’s lawless decree that God’s law against sodomy is null and void is scarcely dry, but the Gaystopo has not taken a day off. They are pressing the fight and will continue to do so until either they or the Catholic Church in America have been defeated.

Emboldened by the realization that they own the Supreme Court, the Gaystopo, as predicted here, are turning every screw they can to mock Catholic doctrine and press their attack. Now, they have a new partner, the National Broadcasting Network (NBC), which has slithered out of the closet.

In the type of sneaky, out-of-the-spotlight move that characterizes these minions of hate, the Gaystopo has quietly arranged for the ouster of John Dunleavy, a faithful Catholic, from his position as Chairman of New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee. His offense was uttering a mild threat against the continued presence of Gay groups marching under a banner announcing their love for committing the sin of sodomy.

NBC’s ugly hand in all of this is that it now has a puppet chairman of the parade in its pocket and is blackmailing him into accepting a second Gay/sodomite group. The deal will be that in order for the parade to continue to be televised by NBC, the Committee will have to accept a group of in-house sodomites from NBC’s “Fabulous” OUT@NBCUniversal.

Last March, the Gaystopo took full advantage of feckless Church leadership and ordered the Committee to break its covenant with the Catholic Church. For the first time in its history, the parade allowed a sodomite group to march under its own banner promoting sin and violation of Church and natural law.

This irreversible destruction of New York’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is being followed up, and this demand for admission of yet another Gaystopo group will be just the beginning. As the Islamists do, the Gaystopo are using their signature touch of rubbing their vanquished enemy’s nose in the dirt.

The Gaystopo have all the cards; they own the Court, they own the media, and now they own New York’s Irish Day Parade – once called the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. They have no intention of slowing down their charge.

Watch the Video and Comment: Watch: Homeless Vet’s Piano Skills Will BLOW You Away, But The Real Story Is Who He’s Playing For]]>

Northern Florida has found its “Piano Man.”

A video of a homeless man in Sarasota has gone viral after he was captured flawlessly performing “Come Sail Away” by Styx.

Donald Gould, 51 is a retired Marine who was spotted playing on one of the seven pianos on the sidewalks in downtown Sarasota. “It is my passion. I just like to make people happy out there when I’m playing,” Gould told WFLA. “I put my hat out there and sit it on top of the keyboard in hopes of making tips because I’m homeless.”

You can watch the video in its entirety below.

The network explained the pianos are part of the Sarasota Keys project. “It’s an interactive public arts project in downtown Sarasota,” said Jim Shirley of the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County. “The whole idea is to give access to people who want to express themselves.”

More than 500,000 people had seen the video within 24 hours of its posting. “It’s overwhelming to me. I can’t believe it. I‘m still fighting off tears. It’s unbelievable. I never thought it would come to this. I’m a clarinet player,” Gould said. The former Marine explains to WFLA the hard times he has faced:

I had a wife pass away on me in ‘98 and I had a son and I was kind of heavy into the pill thing. They took our child away from us, and my wife took a handful of morphine pills and died. She just went to sleep. I couldn’t keep it together and eventually social services got tired of it and they terminated my parental rights.

Everyday it’s painful. There’s not a day that’s gone by since they took him from me that I haven’t thought about him. He turned 18 last August 24th. I wish he would come and find me.

While he appreciates the positive reaction his performance has been receiving, Gould told WFLA he hopes his son sees it and reaches out to him. “I’ve always loved him from the day he was born. I’m never going to stop loving him,” Gould said.

Read More and Comment: With SCOTUS Decision On Same-Sex Marriage, You Knew Lawyers Would Soon Jump On THIS]]>
When newly legalized matrimony ends in bitter, irreconcilable acrimony for same-sex couples, there’s now a law firm ready to handle divorce cases for gay and lesbian partners whose bliss has gone amiss. And what could be the nation’s first practice with attorneys who specialize in LGBTQ divorce has popped up in, of all places, the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia.

Yes, yes, I know we’ve all heard about legal action taken by same-sex couples against bakers and photographers who refuse them service; but when a gay or lesbian couple is ready to sue each other for legal separation, they can cruise on over to a just-launched website called Adam Vs. Steve. There, attorney J. Conor Corcoran has announced the formation of a new division of his law practice “devoted entirely to LGBTQ divorce.”

(By the way, if you’re not familiar with the new five-letter and not the old four-letter reference to non-straight persons, LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer.)

On the Adam Vs. Steve website, the divorce-focused attorney Corcoran is described as a “staunch Democrat and social liberal” who’s realistic enough to face the fact that, just like what happens with heterosexual couples, same-sex marriages will sometimes not work out…and Corcoran wants the LGBTQ community to know he’s there when they don’t.

Like many LGBTQ community supporters, attorney J. Conor Corcoran celebrated Friday’s Supreme Court decision that upholds marriage equality throughout the United States.

But proud as he is of the upcoming boom in gay matrimony, Corcoran knows that some of this wedded bliss will end in acrimony. That’s why he has launched a new division of his law practice, devoted entirely to LGBTQ divorce.

As the local CBS TV station in Philadelphia noted in its report on what could be the country’s first gay divorce firm, the lawyer heading up the practice claims the name for his website was inspired by what he says were insults aimed at gay couples.

“I realized that there really is a certain kind of empowerment and benevolence in taking what was formerly a derogatory term or a denigration and turning it into some matter of empowerment. And it’s for a good service. These people are entitled to equal rights just like the rest of us.”

So, with the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling that same-sex couples have a new, constitutionally protected right to legally marry in every state in the union, the justices have also created a new opportunity for other legal eagles to provide counsel for — some might say swoop down and feed off the remains of — LGBTQ couples whose marriages were not, so to speak, made in heaven.

Shocking New Study Reveals Just How Many Muslims Support ISIS (And It’s Frightening) http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/shocking-new-study-reveals-just-how-many-muslims-support-isis-and-its-frightening/ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/shocking-new-study-reveals-just-how-many-muslims-support-isis-and-its-frightening/#comments Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:56:58 +0000 http://www.westernjournalism.com/?p=240864 This isn't the first time a study seemed to show that Muslims agree with or lean toward Islamic extremism.

Read More and Comment: Shocking New Study Reveals Just How Many Muslims Support ISIS (And It’s Frightening)]]>
Yet another poll of “regular” Muslims seems to show that a shockingly high number actually agree with Muslim extremism. This time, a poll finds that a whopping 42 million support the creation of a worldwide caliphate, an Islamic order that would outlaw all other religions.

Many non-Muslims console themselves with the assumption that “most Muslims” don’t support extremism or terrorism. But nearly every time a poll is taken, this notion that Muslims stand four square against extremism is shot down.

According to Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project, this new study should serve as a warning about Muslim extremism. With these results, “ISIS is only a fraction of what it could potentially become,” Mauro said.

“If we don’t act quickly, this is still going to grow,” he continued, “and what we’re looking at today is going to look like the good old days compared to the future.”

This isn’t the first time a study seemed to show that Muslims agree with or lean toward Islamic extremism.

A recent study of British Muslims found that fully a third felt that the British government was at fault for the radicalization of young Muslims, not Islam, not ISIS, and not al Qaeda.

Britain isn’t alone. A new study of U.S. Muslims conducted last month by the Center for Security Policy found that a large number of American Muslims felt that sharia law was better than the U.S. Constitution. They also felt that they should be allowed to ignore the Constitution and instead be judged by “sharia courts” in America.

Not long ago, another poll by the Pew Research Center found that 88% of Muslims in Egypt and 62% of Muslims in Pakistan favor the death penalty for people who leave the Muslim religion.

The same poll found that honor killings were acceptable to many Muslims and that putting adulterers to death was a perfectly sane punishment.

Finally, during the “draw Mohammad” controversy, not to mention the murders of 12 staff members of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, large numbers of Muslims around the world agreed that freedom of speech should be illegal and that any harsh words against Islam should be made a crime.

12-year-old conservative C.J. Pearson criticized actor and activist George Takei on his YouTube channel after the Star Trek star made comments critical of United States Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for his dissent in last week’s ‘gay marriage’ ruling.

Takei told KSAZ in an interview Tuesday that he was “angry” at Thomas for dissenting from the majority in Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized ‘gay marriage’ in all 50 states. “He is a clown in blackface sitting on the Supreme Court,” Takei said. “He gets me that angry. He doesn’t belong there.”

Pearson, taking exception to Takei’s remarks, took to his widely popular YouTube channel shortly thereafter. “Some people that demand the most tolerance can be the most intolerant who you will ever meet in your life,” Pearson said. “And these racist bigoted comments coming from this man is just one more indication of that.”

“I am sick and tired of the left calling us racist, calling us bigots, and calling us people who don’t care about black people,” the boy continued. “But yet, when they say that ‘someone’s got a blackface.’ And well, it’s a okay. It’s not okay! It’s never been okay and it never will be okay. Understood, George?” Pearson took the rest of the video to address Takei directly:

Because guess what, George? I’m sorry, but if a man stands for what he believes, and for Clarence Thomas it was that marriage is between a man and a woman and the Constitution doesn’t grant that purview that’s between a man and a man and a woman and a woman. That’s his belief.

And for you to call someone a blackface is one of the most racist comments that anyone really could. And you are a disgusting tool. You don’t deserve a voice in the public arena. You don’t deserve a voice in the public arena, you don’t deserve to speak up, really. You’re disgusting. And you need to shut up, sit down, and think about what you said. This is outrageous.

Pearson announced Friday on his Facebook page he would be taking a “break from politics and political commentary” after noting a woman threatened to sue him for expressing his opinions. He did say he will have a team that will continue to monitor all of his social media platforms in the interim.

Read More and Comment: With Same-Sex Marriage, America Has Officially Lost Its Collective Mind]]>
With the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage last week, the fundamental building block of society is no longer affirmed by the rule of law. Rather, by judicial fiat, the legal doors have been thrown open for legitimization of literally any possible kind of relationship as viable and recognizable by the state.

Dr. Patrick Fagan, a sociologist and psychologist has said: “The family is the fundamental building block of society and predates the state and even the societies it builds… At the heart of the family is the mother and father who bring their children into existence.” This is a self-evident truth, regardless of who said it; and anthropologists, biologists, sociologists, politicians, and religious leaders have reiterated that very sentiment. The family is the building block of society and civilization; and the cornerstone to that foundation, or the genesis of it, is a mother and a father.

As evidence that the nation has collectively lost its mind, the highest court in the land has affirmed that “Adam and Steve” are as viable in creating the social building blocks of society as Adam and Eve were. But such convolution is unavoidable in a society where words no longer have literal meaning, but are only interpreted based on contemporary perceptions of “rights” and state-sanctioned privileges.

As logically bizarre as it is, the tenets of the 14th Amendment were used as justification. The Amendment was adopted following the Civil War to ensure that all citizens, regardless of color, were assured “equal protection of the laws.” The tenet was crucial to resolving issues related to race, and logically tenable. After all, no one has the ability to choose their race, their skin color, or other congenital features determined genetically. Nor can they arbitrarily choose their sex, which is why it’s also logically tenable for application of the Amendment in cases related to sexual discrimination.

But now, for the first time, “equal protection of the laws” is applied based on behavior and choice. For even if there are predilections, or a predisposition, to behave in a certain way, it is still ultimately a matter of choice whether each person acts on those inclinations. And with this caveat, application of the equal protection clause can now be legally, albeit illogically, applied to anything that is behaviorally based, or has an element of choice to it. Since the “right” to “marry” no longer has any legitimacy as an anthropological, biological, or social convention, as etymologically it has held for eons, everything and anything is game.

All “marriage” restrictions can now be revisited, reinterpreted, and re-adjudicated from the bench. Marriage will continue to be redefined since it is no longer based on natural law. There is no viable logical limitation that can be applied to prevent further morphing of the term. It will of necessity evolve to include everyone who loves anyone, or anything. The man who wanted to marry his horse a few years ago can no longer be logically proscribed, and the trio from Montana who said this week they want to be married are all viable. And all other barriers and restrictions will necessarily fall as well since the logic and the fundamental raison d’être behind marriage is now discarded in the dustbin of history.

The political leap from equal treatment of individuals under the law, to equal treatment of behavior and relationships under the law, is one of quantum proportions that defies logic.

And since equal protection now can be applied to behavior and choice, what’s to prevent the next fad group averring their presumed “constitutional rights” from requiring egalitarian application of the rule to income, aptitude tests, performance reviews, school exams, or any other “right” that some hair brained group claims they’re entitled to per “equality under the law”? Pandora’s legal box of horrors has now been thrown open!

No wonder the most logical and constitutionally sound justice on the court, Justice Antonin Scalia, ripped the majority opinion as mercilessly as he did. He called it a “judicial Putsch” that poses a “threat to American democracy.” He added that a “system of government that makes the People subordinate to a committee of nine unelected lawyers does not deserve to be called a democracy.” He said the Court’s “naked judicial claim to legislative—indeed, super-legislative—power bulldozed the right of the People to self-government.”

In a freaky, unconventional way, America has advanced in its claim to being the “land of the free.” We are now free from logic, common sense, and the literal rule of law. Welcome to the new Wild West, where laws can mean what they don’t literally say; the rights of the people as asserted by initiative and referendum are voided by five politicians in robes, posing as “judges” of the Constitution; and natural law, laws of biology and sociology, as well as language etymology, are all trash-canned to allow 1.5-2.5% of the population to have their lifestyle validated and affirmed.

In light of current judicial trends, no wonder Jefferson referred to the judicial branch as “the despotic branch.” Abraham Lincoln aptly described our current state: “If the policy of the Government upon vital questions…is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers.” Interestingly, he may have also provided the solution. “The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it.”

Read More and Comment: Rick Perry Releases Awesome New Campaign… Cartoon?]]>
If you combine “Schoolhouse Rocks” with “Beavis and Butthead,” you get former Texas Governor and current Presidential candidate Rick Perry’s new web video, “Economic Freedom: An Animation.”

And yes, it’s just as awesome as it sounds…

The video, titled, “Economic Freedom: An Animation,” features a man driving by signs sporting President Obama’s campaign slogans and listening to gloomy news reports on the radio. Eventually the protagonist flees to Texas where his standing of living appears to markedly improve.

Of course with the press being the press, some are mocking it, while others call it different and kinda cute. Unfortunately, the video is getting buried under an avalanche of Donald Trump stories, which is awful because this really is brilliant. Like we keep saying, culture is where the game is won. Lightening up and doing fun things like this video, while also encouraging donations, helps reach an audience that Rick Perry needs to reach.

An audience, mind you, that only knows Perry from his 2012 debacle, or from the parody the the mainstream media presents. This video just may help change that.

More of this, please. And less of reality stars who aren’t actually conservative (no matter how much traffic he sends to your website) who are going to end up dropping out of the race anyway.

Ever since the shooting death of Michael Brown by Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson, there’s been an increasing number of calls for the use of body cameras by law enforcement in big cities as well as small towns. Only a few weeks ago, the Obama administration began a program to study the impact of having officers routinely wear body cams to record interactions with the public, especially with people suspected of crimes or those with whom the officer may have a controversial encounter.

As reported by USA Today, the Justice Department is putting up tens of millions of dollars toward the purchase of some 50,000 body-worn video cameras.

“Body-worn cameras hold tremendous promise for enhancing transparency, promoting accountability and advancing public safety for law enforcement officers and the communities they serve,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said.

However, as the video associated with this report graphically shows, what those police body cams capture can also hold the tremendous potential for exposing the public to shocking, even horrifying, scenes.

The New York Daily News reports that a 47-year-old Texas man was caught on body-mounted cameras worn by two police officers as he pulled a gun on the cops, who then dropped the man in a hail of bullets. It all happened on May 31st, starting inside a restaurant in Palestine, Tx., then moving outside, where the man is seen drawing a gun that turned out to be a BB pistol.

Identified as James Bushey of Elkhart, Tx., the man was supposedly wanted for questioning in connection with the theft of beer from a nearby store. What appeared at first to be an incident-free detention of the suspect in the restaurant’s bathroom quickly escalated into a fatal confrontation.

Ater an investigation by police and prosecutors, the two officers involved in the fatal shooting were cleared of wrongdoing and the recording of their actions was released. You can watch what happened by clicking on the video above.

What do you think? Is it good that the footage from police body cams is released to the public so we can all see just what happened in cases like this? Weigh in on the conversation by commenting below.

An Illinois college professor suggested on Twitter last month that because white persons owned slaves over a century ago, white persons today “are complicit in it.”

Adam Kotsko, a professor of humanities at Shimer College in Chicago, tweeted out the following on June 25: “Whether or not your individual ancestors owned slaves, you as a white person have benefited from slavery and are complicit it it. Sorry.” One person responded, “What follows from this?” to which Kotsko answered: “We should commit mass suicide.”

This post originally appeared on Western Journalism - Equipping You With The Truth



Read More and Comment: It’s Happening: Gay Couple Suing New York Bed And Breakfast For Not Hosting Wedding…]]>
I can’t possibly write enough “I told you so’s” for this one. It’s happened in the UK, Canada, Denmark… and here we are in America.

At first… they came for the cakes. 

acr

Now, we have a lesbian couple in Lyncourt, New York, who have thrown open the doors to another area: private businesses that host weddings. Andrea Needham, 22, and Sarah Dailey, 24, filed a complaint with New York’s Division of Human Rights, saying the bed and breakfast Apple Country Retreat discriminated against them because of their sexual orientation.

Dailey told Syracuse.com that the owner told them that it was “nothing personal” but that gay marriage was “against my faith.”

The couple further stated: “We are human beings, just like anybody else. We’re not asking to impose on anybody’s else beliefs or opinions, just to celebrate our love as any other two people would.”

I’m confused. If the owners told you it wasn’t personal, but that it was against their beliefs to host a gay ceremony… and you don’t want to impose on anyone else’s beliefs… then why are you filing a complaint? Why not find another location? How do their personal beliefs affect you? Remember that?

Unless, of course, you didn’t actually mean you don’t want to impose on anyone else’s beliefs.

It’s a fair question though, and one which the Supreme Court has helped to make that much more confusing. Does a couple’s “true love” trump an individual’s right to religious freedom?

Can a business “discriminate” on any grounds whatsoever? If the answer is no… then why have Amazon and eBay remove Confederate merchandise from their site? Can a business refuse service to someone who isn’t wearing a shirt and shoes? Does a business ever have the right not to serve someone? Ever? Ever ever ever ever?

Either the answer is yes, or it is no. It cannot be both.

This is literally an exact mirror image of what we’ve discussed from the UK. A Bed and Breakfast was sued, next step… they lost their business. I talked about it on the show. I guaranteed this would happen. It couldn’t be more comparable.

Gay activists already want churches to lose their tax exempt status. Next step: pastors who won’t officiate gay marriages will be on the chopping block. Just wait. It’s coming.

A Montana man applied for a second marriage license Wednesday so he could marry his second wife, drawing inspiration from last week’s United State’s Supreme Court decision legalizing ‘gay marriage’ in all 50 states.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that Nathan Collier and his wives, Victoria and Christine, applied for a marriage license at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday. Bigamy, holding more than one marriage license, is currently illegal in all 50 states; but Collier told the AP Wednesday he plans to sue if he is denied a license. “It’s about marriage equality,” Collier said. “You can’t have this without polygamy.”

Collier’s application was initially denied; but it is now under review with the county attorney’s office, which should have an answer for him within the next week. “I think he deserves an answer,” Yellowstone County Attorney Kevin Gillen said. He told the AP his review is finding that “the law simply doesn’t provide for that yet.” The AP offered background on Collier and his family:

Collier, 46, said that dissent inspired him. He owns a refrigeration business in Billings and married Victoria, 40, in 2000. He and his second wife, Christine, had a religious wedding ceremony in 2007 but did not sign a marriage license to avoid bigamy charges, he said. Collier said he is a former Mormon who was excommunicated for polygamy and now belongs to no religious organization.

He said he and his wives hid their relationship for years, but became tired of hiding and went public by appearing on the reality cable television show  ‘Sister Wives.’ The three have seven children of their own and from previous relationships.

“My second wife Christine, who I’m not legally married to, she’s put up with my crap for a lot of years. She deserves legitimacy,” Collier said. Many have weighed in on Twitter with various opinions:

Do you think polygamy will be legalized soon? Should it be? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Earlier this week, Western Journalism told you how the classic television show Dukes of Hazzard has been dropped by the cable network TV Land because the iconic car the Duke boys drove around had a Confederate flag painted on its top. The show was canned by the net that carries programs such as The Brady Bunch and Leave It to Beaver, not because the characters were racist or the story lines depicted racist themes, but because of a symbol atop the show’s familiar 1969 Dodge Charger — a symbol that is now the target of what could be called a relentless PC purge.

It was back in the mid 1980’s when CBS stopped production of Dukes of Hazzard with its “Good Ol’ Boys” theme song performed by Waylon Jennings. A big fan of the show later stepped up and bought one of the official vehicles used in the filming — one of the General Lee cars. That fan was pro golfer and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson.

Now the third-ranked golfer in the world, Watson let his fans and followers know on Thursday that he would not keep the classic car and TV star in its original condition. The news broke big on social media after Watson tweeted his plan for painting over the Confederate flag on the General Lee and replacing it with an American flag.

According to a report in the Pensacola News Journal, Bubba Watson bought the General Lee at auction: “Watson became the proud owner of the General Lee 01 in 2012 after spending $110,000 at auction to win the iconic orange 1969 Dodge Charger used by the Duke brothers in the popular 80s TV show ‘Dukes of Hazzard.’”

Reaction on social media to the pro golfer’s decision to remove the Confederate flag from the vehicle was mixed, with many people questioning or criticizing the move to fundamentally transform a piece of TV history.

There’s no word, as yet, on whether Bubba Watson will also eliminate from the General Lee the name “General Lee,” which, of course, refers to Robert E. Lee, the commanding general and brilliant tactician of the Confederate Army.

For Melissa and Aaron Klein — owners of a small, family-run bakery in Sandy, Or. — Thursday was not a day for baking a cake in celebration of a victory for their First Amendment rights. In fact, it may have been the day that will be remembered for having forced the Kleins to power down the ovens and turn out the lights of their business, Sweet Cakes by Melissa.

As The Blaze reports, The Oregon Labor Commissioner — citing Oregon law that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation — has issued a final order imposing a whopping fine on the Kleins.

“The owners of an Oregon bakery that refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple were ordered Thursday to pay $135,000 ‘in damages for emotional and mental suffering resulting from the denial of service.’”

After learning they would be fined $135,000 for declining the lesbian couple’s wedding cake order, the Kleins posted a message on the Facebook page for their business — a message that, as of this writing, has gotten well over 9,300 likes. The Kleins pledge they will not give up the fight, saying they are “here to obey God not man.” An image of the entire Facebook post appears below.

A GoFundMe page that had been set up for donations to help support the Kleins was shut down. However, through another online donation site called Continue to Give, people are now stepping up frequently and generously with pledges toward the fundraising goal of $150,000.

On the website for their bakery, the Kleins say they’re still in business, still baking cakes that are “custom made and designed to fit you.” As for their wedding services, the wording on the website for Sweet Cakes is explicit and leaves no doubt about their stance on traditional marriage.

“We here at Sweet Cakes strongly believe that when a man and woman come together to be joined as one, it is truly one of the most special days of their lives….”.

Washington, D.C., was in a panic!

72,000 Confederate troops were just sixty miles away near Gettysburg, Pa.

After the Confederate victory at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Robert E. Lee was under a time deadline.

Mounting casualties of the war were causing Lincoln’s popularity to fall, so if Lee could get a quick victory at Gettysburg, he could pressure Lincoln into a truce.

But this window of opportunity was fast closing, as Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was about to capture Vicksburg on the Mississippi, which would divide the Confederacy and free up thousands of Union troops to fight Lee in the east.

Unfortunately for Lee, his tremendously successful general, “Stonewall” Jackson, had died two months earlier, having been mistakenly shot by his own men.

On the Union side, Lincoln replaced Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker with Maj. Gen. George Meade to command the 94,000 men of the Union Army of the Potomac.

The Battle of Gettysburg began July 1, 1863.

After two days of intense combat, with ammunition running low, General Lee ordered a direct attack.

Confederate General James Longstreet disagreed with Lee’s plan, resulting in his delayed advance after all the Confederate artillery was spent.

Historians speculate that if General Longstreet had made a timely attack, the Confederates may have won the day.

As it happened, though, 12,500 Confederate soldiers marched across a mile of open field without artillery cover to make “Pickett’s Charge” directly into the Union position at Cemetery Ridge.

After an hour of murderous fire and bloody hand-to-hand combat, the Confederates were pushed back and the Battle of Gettysburg ended, JULY 3, 1863, with over 50,000 casualties.

The next day, Vicksburg surrendered to General Grant, giving the Union Army control of the Mississippi River.

When news reached London, all hopes of Europe recognizing the Confederacy were ended.

For the next two years, the South was on the defensive.

On July 5, 1863, President Lincoln and his son visited General Daniel E. Sickles, who had his leg blown off at Gettysburg.

General James F. Rusling recorded that when General Sickles asked Lincoln if he was anxious before the battle, Lincoln answered:

No, I was not; some of my Cabinet and many others in Washington were, but I had no fears…

Lincoln continued:

In the pinch of your campaign up there, when everybody seemed panic-stricken, and nobody could tell what was going to happen, oppressed by the gravity of our affairs, I went to my room one day, and I locked the door, and got down on my knees before Almighty God, and prayed to Him mightily for victory at Gettysburg.

I told Him that this was His war, and our cause His cause, but we couldn’t stand another Fredericksburg or Chancellorsville.

And I then and there made a solemn vow to Almighty God, that if He would stand by our boys at Gettysburg, I would stand by Him…

Lincoln added:

And He did stand by you boys, and I will stand by Him.

And after that (I don’t know how it was, and I can’t explain it), soon a sweet comfort crept into my soul that God Almighty had taken the whole business into his own hands and that things would go all right at Gettysburg.

Twelve days after the Battle of Gettysburg, July 15, 1863, Lincoln proclaimed a Day of Prayer:

It is meet and right to recognize and confess the presence of the Almighty Father and the power of His hand equally in these triumphs and in these sorrows…

I invite the people of the United States to…render the homage due to the Divine Majesty for the wonderful things He has done in the nation’s behalf and invoke the influence of His Holy Spirit to subdue the anger which has produced and so long sustained a needless and cruel rebellion.

In his Gettysburg Address, November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln ended:

We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Years later at the Gettysburg Battlefield, President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated, May 30, 1934:

On these hills of Gettysburg two brave armies of Americans once met in contest…

Since those days, two subsequent wars, both with foreign Nations, have measurably…softened the ancient passions.

It has been left to us of this generation to see the healing made permanent.

In his 3rd Inaugural Address, President Roosevelt said, January 20, 1941:

The spirit of America…is the product of centuries….born in the multitudes of those who came from many lands…

The democratic aspiration is no mere recent phase in human history. It is human history…

Its vitality was written into our own Mayflower Compact, into the Declaration of Independence, into the Constitution of the United States, into the Gettysburg Address…

If the spirit of America were killed, even though the Nation’s body…lived on, the America we know would have perished.

When it comes to big fish stories, here’s one about the monster that didn’t get away…though, quite possibly, you might think that an angler in his right mind would have gladly let it go.

Sharks have been in the news quite a lot lately. Seven reported shark attacks in shallow coastal waters off North Caroline over the past few weeks have vacationers keeping a very close eye on the surf. And when Western Journalism shared a Tennessee woman’s self-made video about how to avoid shark attacks — a video called “Summer Safety Tips” that’s been viewed close to 6 million times — people who watched the very entertaining piece about a very serious subject went wild with appreciation.

Now, another video about a determined fisherman’s wild experience off Florida when a bull shark as big as his kayak took the bait and took the man for a scary ride. Fox News identifies the intrepid angler as Capt. Ben Chancey, who had to swim for his life when the 8-foot fish thrashed about and capsized the small boat.

However, once Chancey swam to the safety of a nearby vessel and caught his breath, he got right back on the horse, so to speak, hopped back into his kayak, and reeled in the shark that was still on his line. After besting the beast, Chancey reportedly let it go.

You can watch the insane recording of this dangerously close encounter by clicking on the video above.

Read More and Comment: In Wake Of Supreme Court Ruling, This Gay Teacher Is Suing Catholic School For Discrimination]]>
The fallout over last Friday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision declaring ‘gay marriage’ a constitutional right continued this week when a one-time Catholic school teacher sued his former employer for discrimination.

Flint Dollar claims in his suit that he was fired three weeks after signing a contract with Mount de Sales Academy in Macon, Ga. Though his story now includes the assertion that he told administrators he was planning to marry his boyfriend upon finalizing his paperwork last May, he said at the time that the wedding announcement came via a Facebook post.

While serving as the school’s band director several years ago, Dollar’s suit asserts he informed President David Held that he was involved in a same-sex relationship. Furthermore, he claims the school’s handbook does not specifically require employees to abide by the Catholic Church’s doctrine.

Reports indicate Dollar is asking for his case to be decided by a jury. He is suing to get his job back plus compensation for back pay, emotional pain and attorney’s fees.

Although the Diocese of Savannah spoke out in support of Held’s decision to fire Dollar, a board of trustees meeting served as the backdrop for a protest attended by dozens of critics. Some cited Pope Benedict’s more progressive view on social issues, with a few signs bearing his quote: “Who am I to judge?”

Breitbart readers were overwhelmingly critical of the lawsuit’s supposed merits. Many pointed out that this is but one of the possible consequences of last week’s Supreme Court decision.

“This has opened up a can of worms which will eventually shutter churches, schools, universities, and every other religious institution in this country due to the efforts of the gay mafia already underway to repeal their tax exempt status,” one commenter concluded.

The latest celebrity to weigh in on presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent remarks about illegal immigrants did so via an open letter published Thursday by the Huffington Post. America Ferrara, known for her leading role in the ABC series Ugly Betty, took a different approach with her criticism than fellow Latina actress Eva Longoria.

As Western Journalism reported, Longoria suggested that both Trump and Adolf Hitler relied on “just words” to spread a dangerous ideology. From her headline, one might assume Ferrara’s take is completely contrary to Longoria’s.

Her letter bears the title “Thank You, Donald Trump!” and goes on to describe how she believes Trump’s rhetoric will compel even more Hispanic voters to make their way to the polls next November.

“Here we are pounding the pavement to get American Latinos to the polls,” she wrote, “while your tactic proves the most effective.”

Ferrara cited Trump and other candidates she claims campaign “on a platform of hateful rhetoric,” explaining they are alienating a growing voting bloc at their own peril.

“This is the America we are actually living in,” she continued. “I hope by now you understand that without the Latino vote, there is no chance of you ever winning this election.”

While she claimed Trump is “living in an outdated fantasy of a bigoted America,” many obviously still embrace the ideals he expressed. One Huffington Post reader, for example, took exception to another comment complaining of the “GOP hate parade” to which Trump ostensibly belongs.

“I didnt [sic] know being against illegal immigrants who dont [sic] belong here so that america [sic] could be stronger was a ‘hate parade,’” he wrote. “But of course your idea of just paying for everyone who can hop, skip, jump, or swim across the border is also good.”

On Wednesday, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News host Megyn Kelly that nuclear terror threats are “a big concern” in New York City headed into the Fourth of July weekend.

While the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a warning for Americans after terror attacks were carried out on three separate continents over the past week either by the Islamic State of Iraq and and Syria (ISIS) or someone inspired by their cause, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday: “it is not uncommon for these kinds of joint information bulletins to be issued in advance of the Fourth of July.”

I can also say that there is no specific credible intelligence to indicate any threats against celebrations over the Fourth of July weekend.

But King dismissed Earnest’s statement Wednesday on The Kelly File. “This is for real. I’ve been at the meetings,” said King, who serves on the House Homeland Security and Intelligence committees.

I’ve gotten the briefings going back two and three weeks, how concerned they were. And you would not see the manhole covers being tightened down. You would not see the cameras being used the way they are. The nuclear explosive devices in New York, detection devices being used the way they are.The extra personnel being put on, the snipers, all of that. That wouldn’t be there if this was just a routine warning.

Kelly asked King if he said “nuclear,” which he confirmed. “It’s a big concern here in New York explosives, you know, the dirty bomb,” King said. “That’s why so much money has been put into explosive detection devices here in New York aimed at nuclear ones. The dirty bomb is a real concern we’ve always had here in New York.”

In a separate interview earlier in the day with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, King said he would not be seeking the 2016 Republican presidential nomination after previously dipping his feet in the water.

I would love to have the opportunity to run, to go all the way, and I think I can more than compete with any of those that are in there, but the reality is as far as money … the fact that I do have a full-time job now on the intelligence and homeland security committees – it’s just not in the cards. I don’t want to be taking up other people’s time. I don’t want to have 19, 20 candidates, whatever it’s going to be.
