Dem Rep Luis Gutierrez Arrested Outside White House Protesting Obama's I...

On July 26, 2011, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois) was arrested outside of the White House after refusing to move when asked by authorities. Gutierrez, who sat in front of a sign that read "Stop Separating Our Families" with a line of protesters, refused to leave when asked by the police. Gutierrez was in attendance at a rally urging President Obama to do more to stop the deportation of illegal immigrants.MRCTV caught up with Gutierrez before he was arrested in which he said, "I think (President Obama) should use the broad discretionary power that the laws have conferred upon him and make decisions, smart decisions" in regards to deportation. 

Is this guy for real? He is an elected official who took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Is he an American or a Mexican? As far as I can tell he is an American with a Hispanic background. He's supposed to be representing Americans not illegals.

No more anchor babies. 

He says to "show some discretion?" Yeah, does that apply to himself. He also said that there are "good people in this country" Yes, law abiding citizens, not illegals. And furthermore, how is he or any Democrat or any representative for that matter doing to get "rid" of the gang bangers, drug dealers, rapists and those that do harm. I haven't seen any effort.

The Mexican Drug cartel are being allowed to over take American land in Arizona. Terrorists are coming into our nation unchecked and unchallenged. Rapists are roaming free after only serving a couple of years in jail. Those that do harm, well, let's see babies are being murdered every day in their mother's wombs. Gang members are still, as far as I can tell, running havoc in their neighborhoods and streets. And illegals have been known to murder and rape and are still roaming free because they are undocumented and there are no official records of any of them.

I have no problem with immigrants coming to America as long as it is legal. Granted it does take time, but it eventually happens. The system is broken and needs to be revamped.

Nuff said.

Debt ceiling speeches: Obama reasserts himself; Boehner pushes back

From the Politico:  Obama elbowed his way back into the debt ceiling debate Monday night, three days after Republicans shoved him out, but he offered no hint of a solution to the escalating political and financial crisis.        Of course he doesn't have a solution the only thing that man is capable of is spend, spend, spend.  And to hell with the people of this great nation.
If regular citizens — or markets here and overseas — were looking for reassurance in Obama’s 15-minute speech or House Speaker John Boehner’s five-minute rebuttal, they were out of luck. Instead, the men who hold the fiscal destiny of nearly 312 million people in their hands treated viewers to the unsettling spectacle of two leaders talking past, not to, each other.
Obama....“This is no way to run the greatest country on Earth. … We can’t allow the American people to become collateral damage to Washington’s political warfare,” he added. “If you want a balanced approach to reducing the deficit, let your member of Congress know.”  Is he for real?  My word, this clown is such a flim-flam.  Basically he is saying don't look at me, I didn't do anything and find help somewhere else.  Coward.
Obama did call for unity, quoting Ronald Reagan and citing former presidents from both parties who support a “balanced approach” of spending cuts, revenue increases and entitlement reforms. But he also bashed Republicans, arguing that their tactics “risk sparking a deep economic crisis — one caused almost entirely by Washington” and categorically rejected Boehner’s new plan for a short-term debt ceiling hike.                         Unbelievable.  Once again, he quotes a great man but has no idea the meaning behind the quote. He stands behind a great man's words but it's all empty to him.  Furthermore, notice who he continues to put the the blame off of himself, when it is HE and his cronies that have placed this nation in dire straits.  
Obama.....“Defaulting on our obligations is a reckless and irresponsible outcome to this debate,” Obama said. “And Republican leaders say that they agree we must avoid default. But the new approach that Speaker Boehner unveiled today, which would temporarily extend the debt ceiling in exchange for spending cuts, would force us to once again face the threat of default just six months from now. In other words, it doesn’t solve the problem.”  And who's, Mr. Obama, fault is that?  Be a man and deal with the mess that you and your administration created. 
There is no perfect plan, but I believe the Republicans are trying to do damage control.  If something is not done and soon we are going to wind up like Greece or worse, much worse.
Obama is a bully, and incompetent in leading this nation.  He has absolutely no idea what he is doing and when he doesn't get his way he throws a temper tantrum. It's time to clean house and get the Obama's out of the way and replace them with people who love America, respect and abide by the Constitution of the United States and truly will adhere to what the people want. 
We need another Ronald Reagan, we need someone with moral values, someone who is NOT afraid to offend and doesn't give a rats-rear-end about being politically correct. We need someone with strength, courage and that is honorable.  We need a person who will stand by what our forefather's built and believed in. We need God and biblical teachings back in in our schools, back in our place of businesses, back in veteran cemeteries. We need to take back our Christian heritage.
America can stand tall once again, if WE THE PEOPLE, demand that our representatives hold to truth and justice.

US gives bizarre dhimmi orders to troops in Afghanistan

This week, the madness of the counterinsurgency doctrine (COIN), which drives the war in Afghanistan, reached new heights -- or depths -- as revealed by two news stories.
In Great Britain, a former Royal Marine told the Sun newspaper after the inquest into the 2010 death of Sgt. Peter Rayner that soldiers were prevented from opening fire at Taliban fighters in the act of laying IEDs (crude, handmade bombs), so as not to disturb the local population.
So as not to disturb?
In Iowa, a community mourns the death of National Guard soldier Terry L. Pasker, who, along with contractor Paul Protzenko, was killed last week in yet another attack by an Afghan army soldier. reports: "The U.S. military considered the area so safe that soldiers didn't wear body armor, so as not to offend the friendly locals."
So as not to offend?
And get this...Troops were even told they could be charged with MURDER if they shot anyone without permission from command.
I found this very interesting from Jihad Watch
They don't want to wake the Taliban, but it is actually the U.S. military commanders who are asleep. "Don’t shoot’ll wake locals: Marine’s diary reveals bizarre order to Brit troops," by Andrew Parker in The Sun, July 18 (thanks to Nick):
Craig Smith, 36, said US military chiefs routinely frustrated frontline forces by ordering them to exercise "courageous restraint".
Troops were even told they could be charged with MURDER if they shot anyone without permission from command.
Dad-of-one Craig lifted the lid on "outrageous" orders issued to troops in a diary of his six-month tour of Afghanistan's treacherous Helmand province with 40 Commando.
He spoke out after an inquest heard 34-year-old hero Sergeant Peter Rayner was blown up, just days after being told not to fire on insurgents who were seen laying deadly IEDs.
One senior officer stunned troops when he ordered them not to shoot a Taliban fighter because gunfire would "wake up and upset the locals".
Instead they were told they must stand by and WATCH....
SOLDIERS were banned from shooting Taliban fighters planting mines - to avoid waking Afghan locals, a former Royal Marine has revealed.
Seriously???  Our soldiers and allies are given orders to watch the scum bags laying down bombs and  they can't shoot them?  Are we at war or babysitting the locals?  Please excuse my language here, but you friggn' shoot the bastards putting down the bombs and who gives a rats-rear-end if you wake up the locals!! What the bombs aren't going to do that anyway?  I am sure the Taliban could give a flying leap who they wake up as long as they can take out a few American or British soldiers out?  Or any of our allied forces fighting in Afghanistan, right?

What about silencers? Can those be used?  Or is it breaking some other kind of politically incorrect faux pas?

Is this the Twilight Zone?  Are the soldiers sent out there for target practice or to win a war.  War is hell and it takes no prisoners. 

I think I will share my kitty video tomorrow, this has left me angry, and desperate for our soldiers fighting overseas.

Bring them home, now!

Death sentence for Christian convert in Iran

I just don't know what to add to this horrible situation.  I cannot believe how people still claim this is a peaceful religion.  They are the most cruel and heartless "religious" people on this planet.  They care nothing for others and have no qualms about murdering someone who is not Muslim. 

Court verdict below.....

Issued by section 27 Supreme Court Judge Morteza Fazel and Azizoallah Razaghi
Mr. Youcef Nadarkhani, son of Byrom, 32 years old, married, born in Rasht in the state of Gilan is convicted of turning his back on Islam, the greatest religion the prophesy of Mohammad, at the age of 19.
He has often participated in Christian worship and organized home church services, evangelizing and has been baptized and baptized others, converting Muslims to Christianity. He has been accused of breaking Islamic Law that from puberty (15 years according to Islamic law) until the age of 19 the year 1996, he was raised a Muslim in a Muslim home. During court trials, he denied the prophecy of Mohammad and the authority of Islam. He has stated that he is a Christian and no longer Muslim.
During many sessions in court with the presence of his attorney and a judge, he has been sentenced to execution by hanging according to article 8 of Tahrir -olvasileh (one of Khomeni's books about Sharia Law and Khamenie's and Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi's fatwa) His sentence was appealed by his attorney and sent to the supreme court.
The Supreme Courts Response
In the name of Allah
June 12, 2011

(This subpoena states):
We know that Mr. Nadarkhani has confessed that in his heart and in his actions he has denied being Muslim and converted to Christianity and has advertised and encouraged other Muslims to convert to Christianity. And because of advertising and pastoring a church repeatedly professed his Christian faith and denied the prophet Mohammad and the 12th Imam and denied the entire Koran and truth of the Koran.
His case was forwarded to the supreme court (Judge Fazel) and according to Part 2 of article 265 of the Islamic Republic Criminal Law, this case received by and must be returned the state court of Gilan Section 11, and further investigated to prove that from puberty (15 years) to 19 he was not Muslim by his acquaintances, relatives, local elders, and Muslims he frequented. He must repent his Christian faith if this is the case. No research has been done to prove this, if it can be proved that he was a practicing Muslim as an adult and has not repented, the execution will be carried out.

President Obama Threatens to Veto "Cut, Cap and Balance"

FoxNews:  The Obama administration says President Obama would veto the so called "cut, cap and balance" amendment supported by House Republican freshmen and members of the Tea Party if it came to him for signature.

The bill includes a constitutional amendment that requires a balanced budget and allows the government to borrow $2.4 trillion more - but only in conjunction with large spending cuts.
The Office of Management and Budget released a statement that the administration "strongly opposes" it, saying, "Neither setting arbitrary spending levels nor amending the Constitution is necessary to restore fiscal responsibility."

The Office of Management and Budget says the bill "would set unrealistic spending caps that could result in significant cuts to education, research and development, and other programs critical to growing our economy and winning the future. It could also lead to severe cuts in Medicare and Social Security, which are growing to accommodate the retirement of the baby boomers, and put at risk the retirement security for tens of millions of Americans."
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, is a big sponsor of the bill and noted his party is doing what they promised when they got elected. "[T]his is just kicking the can down the road. And that's -- the American people sent us here to make big tough choices. They didn't send us here to set up a commission, give the president veto power. That's not what they sent us here to do," he said on Fox News Sunday.

"We are headed for a cliff. If we don't fix it, it's -- now, we are in big trouble," Jordan added.
While there is some support in the House, it is not expected to make it through the Senate.
The president is supporting a "big" deal to handle the debt ceiling issue, and what the White House calls a "balanced" approach that includes cuts but also tax increases.

Lawmakers are deadlocked over an agreement on raising the debt ceiling and have held several meetings at the White House within the last week. Obama met with House Speaker Boehner and House Majority Leader Cantor Sunday night. August 2 is the deadline on which the Treasury Department says the U.S. would default on its debt.

The House is expected to vote on the "cut, cap and balance" bill on Tuesday.

Obama knows exactly what he is doing.  From day one he had this all planned out.  He is purposely overwhelming the United States by creating systemic failure, economic crisis and social mayhem.  Thereby creating a socialist/Marxist society.  

Just a few thoughts...

Obamacare--free health care to 30 million Americans, unionizing hospitals and health care workers.  It's about control, people.

Cap and Trade--It has nothing to do with global warming, in actuality it is the redistribution of  income and complete government control of our economy and her people.  AGAIN...control.

Puerto Rico--No one but Obama and his cronies wants a 51st state, the reason they want it is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and lest we forget over a million or Democratic voters who would be dependent on the government.

Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants--this would overwhelm the system and bankrupt America.  The Obama administration see more Democratic voters who will collapse the system completely, because they would rely on government assistance like welfare, aid to their children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, etc.  

Least we forget Obama wants to raise taxes on small businesses, high income earners and job creators.  Thereby crippling the economy.  He is very aware that big American companies could not afford the taxes, therefore, they would be forced to lay-off workers, and slow down or completely shut-down these companies.  And those workers would have no choice to but rely completely on big government.

So, of course, he will VETO the "Cut, Cap and Balance."  He wants to cripple the United States to a point where there would be no way to recover fiscally.

California Gov Signs Landmark Law to Teach Gay History

California has become the first state in the nation to require public schools to add lessons about gay history to social studies classes, after Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed the landmark bill on Thursday.

The Democratic-majority Legislature passed the bill last week on a largely party-line vote.
The bill has drawn criticism from some churches and conservative groups that argue such instruction would expose students to a subject that some parents find objectionable.

Read more: Read the rest of the story here.

Okay, this is the bs I have been spewing about in one of my earlier posts. 

 I am astounded but not surprised that California would force their children to have "REQUIRED" reading on gay history? Seriously, what the heck is "gay history?"  Excuse me, but shouldn't the focus be on our kids learning real history and other pertinent subjects to prepare them for careers and life such a... mathematics, English, reading, writing, science, computers and so forth.  That should be the focus of every single school.

Seriously, folks this is getting out of hand.  California has completely lost its focus and wants to corrupt those poor kids.  I hope this won't be the end of it and I also hope that parents will fight this tooth and nail.

Most families, myself included, cannot afford to home school or afford private schools.  We have to keep our boys in public schools. Granted I live in Arkansas, but I would be in the front lines protesting, fighting and who knows what else to prevent this bill from becoming a reality. 

The reality is that God has been excluded and perversion has taken His place.  If we would just follow His guidelines and teachings the world would be a better place.

U.S. withholding $800 million in aid to Pakistan

Activists throw stones at police during a march toward the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad on Friday.
Activists throw stones at police during a march toward the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad on Friday
 White House Chief of Staff William Daley confirmed a report in the New York Times that the aid was being withheld. 

Pakistan has "been an important ally in the fight on terrorism," Daley said, "now they've taken some steps that have given us reason to pause on some of the aid which we're giving to the military, and we're trying to work through that."

Senior U.S. officials, who declined to speak on the record because of the sensitivity of the situation, said the curtailing of aid, which represents a third of U.S. security assistance to Pakistan, was done both to pressure Pakistan to crack down on militants and as retribution for expelling U.S. military trainers.

In addition, the news article further stated that aid could not be sent because of the Pakistani government denying Visas to American workers requiring to operate the equipment that included helicopter parts, radios and night vision.  Furthermore, this list also included the need for rifles, ammunition and body armor for our Army Special Forces trainers, get this, our Special Forces personnel had to take their equipment back home with them BECAUSE Pakistan threw them out of their country!  They then shut down the American program to train THEIR own troops who were combating the Taliban and al Qaeda.

Apparently, they no longer want American aid and no longer require combat training.  So, they fine, they can't have our money either.  Let's see how long they last without US help?

God and Stephen Hawking..Whose Design Is It Anyway?

Is God Really Dead?  
Stephen Hawking's logic faces a mathematician's scrutiny in God and Stephen Hawking 
SEATTLE - Eminent scientist Stephen Hawking's latest contribution to the so-called New Atheist debate The Grand Design claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John C. Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of God's Undertaker, exposes the flaws in Hawking's logic in his latest book, God and Stephen Hawking.

Science has immense cultural and intellectual authority in our sophisticated modern world. With this kind of cache, it must nevertheless be pointed out that not all statements by scientists are statements of science. Therefore such statements do not carry the authority of authentic science, even though it is often erroneously ascribed to them.

God and Stephen HawkingCommonly written off as the inevitable clash between science and religion, the God debate is actually one between theism and atheism, where there are scientists on both sides. With a remarkable surge of interest in God that defies the so-called secularization hypothesis, it could well be that it is precisely the perceived failure of secularization that is driving the God question ever higher on the agenda. Book after book is being published on the subject by prominent scientists, as Francis Collins, Richard Dawkins, Robert Winston, etc. But were Galileo, Kepler, Newton and Maxwell, to name a few, really all wrong on the God question?

With such a lot at stake we surely need to ask Hawking to produce evidence to establish his claim. Do his arguments really stand up to close scrutiny? Has the Grand Master of Physics checkmated the Grand Designer of the Universe?

In lively, layman's terms, Lennox guides us through the key points in Hawking's arguments-with clear explanations of the latest scientific and philosophical methods and theories-and demonstrates that, far from disproving a Creator God, they make His existence seem all the more probable. 

Lennox's book is a great resource for Christians, churches and those in ministry who seek to educate themselves and open authentic dialog with those who question.

Meet John:
 John C. Lennox
John C. Lennox is Fellow in Mathematics and the Philosophy of Science at the University of Oxford, and author of the bestselling God's Undertaker. He lectures on faith and science at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics. He has lectured around the world, including in the United States for Ravi Zacharias; in Austria; and in the former Soviet Union. For more about John C. Lennox, please visit

My review:  This book is positively and most intellectually stimulating.  We see two very distinct brilliant men who have absolute opposing views regarding God the Creator.  It is a great debate between a Believer vs an Atheist.  Absolutely profound book.  

Thank you Litfuse Publicity for providing me a copy of this book to review.  It was awesome!

Homosexuality 'not a civil right'

Here we go again, folks.  The drive for homosexual "marriage" has been renewed in New Jersey.

Seven homosexual and lesbian pairs have filed suit in an effort to legalize same-sex "marriage," despite the fact that civil unions -- marriage under another name -- are already legal in the state. This new lawsuit is proof that homosexuals will stop at nothing until they are validated by marriage.  

First they fought for domestic partnership, then it was for civil unions; Did that make them happy?  No, now they are complaining that civil unions is not satisfactory, they complained, "it doesn't work."  For whom?

This whole debacle could have been killed in New York, California, or any liberal state that  has legalized marriage if only the CHURCH would have united together and with one resounding voice stood up and said, "NO!"  But that wasn't the case, the "church" decided to remain silent and hide their heads under their pillows. There are a few of us and some churches that have stood up to fight, defend and protect the holy covenant of marriage and to protect the sanctity of families.   This is not the time to hide our heads and to remain silent.  We can be just as united and vocal as the homosexuals, and we have a lot more what's stopping the "church?"

I don't give a rats rear-end if people get angry with me, homosexuality is NOT a civil right and DOES NOT deserve civil rights protections.  

And if this isn't bad enough look at this.....

Obama Appoints Gay Activist To West Point Board

Read the article here

I have asked this question a dozen times, why is Obama obsessed with homosexuals and their movement?  I don't understand it.  Why is he forcing this lifestyle down our throats?  

He has a lot more important things to be concerned about than focusing on this particular subject.

Casey Anthony Found Not Guilty of Killing 2-Year-Old Daughter

FOX NEWS....BREAKING: A Florida jury has acquitted Casey Anthony of murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.
Anthony, 25, showed no reaction when the jury's verdict was read Tuesday after more than 10 hours of deliberations. But she began to cry shortly after and hugged her attorney. She could have received a death sentence if she had been convicted of first-degree murder.
Anthony was found not guilty on all murder charges as well as aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter. 
She was found guilty of lying to investigators. Judge Belvin Perry will sentence her Thursday. She could receive up to a year in jail for each count.

Orlando mother Casey Anthony stands accused of first-degree murder in the 2008 death of her toddler daughter, Caylee.
"Casey did not murder Caylee. It’s that simple," Defense attorney Jose Baez told reporters shortly after the verdict was read.

"While we're happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case. Caylee has passed on far, far too soon," Baez said. "Our system of justice has not dishonored her memory by a false conviction."  

Caylee disappeared in June 2008 and her remains were found in woods near her grandparent's Orlando home six months later.

The jury of seven women and five men had worked through much of the long weekend, hearing closing arguments Sunday and Monday morning. 
In their rebuttal closing argument on Monday, prosecutors had claimed Anthony killed Caylee in June 2008 because the toddler interrupted her carefree partying and love life. The jury received the more than 400 pieces of evidence that have been presented by both sides in the case since the trial began in late May.

Prosecutors said the defense's assertion that Caylee's death was an accident made no sense.
Anthony's attorneys said the girl drowned in the family's pool. They have said Anthony panicked and that her father, a former police officer, decided to make the death look like a homicide by placing duct tape over the child's mouth and dumping the body in some nearby woods. George Anthony has denied that.
Prosecutor Jeff Ashton told the jurors no one makes an innocent accident look like murder.

"That's absurd. Nothing has been presented to you to make that any less absurd," Ashton said. He also spent significant time reminding jurors about forensic evidence that he said links Anthony to her daughter's death, including the smell and chemical signature of decomposition in her car.

The jury was chosen from the Tampa Bay area because of pretrial media coverage and have been sequestered in an Orlando hotel. They listened to 33 days of testimony and another two days of closing arguments.
Lead prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick followed Ashton, telling the jurors that prosecutors presented every piece of evidence they promised in May during opening statements.
She then hammered on the lies Anthony, then 22, told from June 16, 2008, when her daughter was last seen, and a month later when sheriff's investigators were notified. Those include the single mother telling her parents she couldn't produce Caylee because the girl was with a nanny named Zanny -- a woman who doesn't exist; that she and her daughter were spending time in Jacksonville, Fla., with a rich boyfriend who doesn't exist; and that Zanny had been hospitalized after an out-of-town traffic crash and that they were spending time with her.

"Responses to grief are as varied as the day is long, but responses to guilt are oh, so predictable," Drane Burdick said. "What do guilty people do? They lie. They avoid. They run. They mislead, not just to their family, but the police. They divert attention away from themselves and they act like nothing is wrong. That's why you heard about what happened in those 31 days."

Drane Burdick concluded the state's case by showing the jury two side-by-side images. One showed Casey Anthony smiling and partying in a nightclub during the month Caylee was missing. The other was of the tattoo -- which meant "beautiful life" -- she got a day before her family and law enforcement first learned of the child's disappearance.

"At the end of this case, all you have to ask yourself is whose life was better without Caylee?" Burdick asked. "This is your answer."

Defense attorneys claimed Anthony's lies and erratic behavior were brought on by her grief over her dead child and the sexual abuse she suffered as a child from her father. George Anthony has denied that allegation, and the judge said no evidence has been presented to support it.

Baez said during his closing argument Sunday that the prosecutors' case was so weak they tried to portray Anthony as "a lying, no-good slut" and that their forensic evidence was based on a "fantasy." He said Caylee's death was "an accident that snowballed out of control."

Baez began his closing argument Sunday with his biggest question: How did Caylee die? Neither prosecutors nor the defense have offered definitive proof.

Baez attacked the prosecution's forensic evidence. He said air analysis of the trunk of Anthony's car, which allegedly showed air molecules consistent with decomposition, could not be duplicated. No one could prove a stain found in the trunk was caused by Caylee's body decomposing there. And witnesses showed maggots found in the trunk came from a bag of trash that was found there, he said.

Baez also attacked George Anthony as unreliable. He said a suicide note George Anthony wrote in January 2009 that claimed no knowledge of what happened to Caylee was self-serving and the attempt was a fraud. He said George Anthony claimed he was going to kill himself with a six-pack of beer and high-blood pressure medicine.

Talk about a miscarriage of justice. The prosecutors did one lousy job convicting this wicked woman.  She is going to be free to roam the streets, continue her partying and lying through her teeth about the murder of her beautiful little girl.

The whole justice system has become a joke.  But what to do you expect?  Navy Seals get tried for defending our nation.  Committing infanticide is legal, so there will be no justice for Caylee...

What are your thoughts on this?

Independence Day: Our Christian Heritage

For 235 years, America has been blessed as the longest on-going Constitutional Republic in the history of the world.  These blessings are not accidental – they are blessings of God.  This is evident as we look at the turmoil in other nations and contrast that to the stability we see in America. Preserving American liberty depends first upon our understanding of the foundations on which this great country was built, and then it depends on preserving the principles on which it was founded.
On July 2, 1776, Congress voted to approve a complete separation from England. Two days later, the early draft of the Declaration of Independence was signed. Four days later, members of Congress took the document and read it out loud from the steps of Independence Hall, proclaiming it to the city of Philadelphia, and afterwards they rang the Liberty Bell. The inscription on the top of the bell is Leviticus 25:10, which reads, "Proclaim liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants thereof."
John Adams said, "The general principles on which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity." Probably the clearest identification of the spirit of the American Revolution was given by John in a letter to Abigail the day after Congress approved the Declaration. He wrote her two letters that day: One was short and jubilant that the Declaration had been approved; the other letter was much longer and gave serious consideration to what had been done that day. Adams could already foresee that their actions would be celebrated by future generations.
A Different Holiday
Adams also noted: "This day will be the most memorable epic in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival." He felt the celebration should be in a manner that would commemorate the day as a "day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty." John Adams believed that the Fourth of July should be a religious holiday. The two top holidays celebrated in this country are Christmas and the Fourth of July. According to John Quincy Adams, the two dates are connected. On the Fourth of July, the Founding Fathers simply took the precepts of Christ and His birth (Christmas) and incorporated those principles into civil government.
The Declaration of Independence was the birth certificate for this nation, but the men who signed it knew it could be their death warrant. The closing paragraph states, "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance of the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor." The 56 Founding Fathers, 27 of whom were trained as ministers, took their pledge seriously. On the morning of the signing, there was silence and gloom as each man was called up to the table of the President of Congress to sign the document, knowing that it could mean their death by hanging.
Most wars have a motto. The motto of World War II was "Remember Pearl Harbor." The motto during the Texas war for independence was "Remember the Alamo." The spiritual emphasis, directed towards King George III who violated God’s laws, gave rise to a motto during the American Revolution: "No King but King Jesus." The Founding Fathers passed the torch to us. It is our responsibility to not let it go out.
Leticia says, "Let us not celebrate Independence Day as just another day off of work or  a time to drink beer, BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers, but a time to reflect the sacrifices of these brave men who gave and risked everything for us to gain and maintain our freedom.
We must also remember our military personnel who have sacrificed their lives and their families to keep our freedom from foreign and domestic tyranny. 
We must never forget the many sacrifices that were made.  Let it not be in vain, my friends.  Take time today and thank God that we have a nation that was built on Christian principles.
Psalms:  33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance."

Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

Thousands Rally Against Georgia Immigration Law

ATLANTA -- Thousands of marchers stormed the Georgia Capitol on Saturday to protest the state's new immigration law, which they say creates an unwelcome environment for people of color and those in search of a better life.

Men, women and children of all ages converged on downtown Atlanta for the march and rally, cheering speakers while shading themselves with umbrellas and posters from the blazing summer sun. Capitol police and organizers estimated that between 8,000 and 14,000 protesters gathered.

They filled the blocks around the Capitol, holding signs decrying House Bill 87 and reading

"Immigration Reform Now!"  HELL NO!

Friends Jessica Bamaca and Melany Cordero held a poster that read: "How would you feel if your family got broken apart?" I probably would feel bad if I were in that situation.  But we cannot excuse the fact that her family broke American laws and they should be deported.  If I were to move to Mexico or Germany, or wherever you had better believe I would take all the proper channels to gain legal citizenship.  Not just barge in and then demand that they take care of me and my family.  How ridiculous.  Yet that is what these people are doing.  Not only that  but they spit on our flag and disrespect and break our laws.

Bamaca was born in the U.S., but her mother and sister are from Guatamala. She said she fears they will be deported.  This is why I am against "Automatic citizenship" for children of illegal immigrants.  No one wants to break up families and it would be detrimental.  It's a bad policy that needs to be irradiated.  

"I would be here by myself," said Bamaca, 13. "I have a feeling (the governor) doesn't know the pain affecting families. If he were to be in our position, how would he react?"  He wouldn't be in this kid's situation because he didn't break any laws.  He is a legal citizen of the United States, her family is not.  How is that his fault?

One provision that was blocked authorizes police to check the illegal immigration status of suspects without proper identification. It also authorizes them to detain illegal immigrants. Another penalizes people who knowingly and willingly transport or harbor illegal immigrants while committing another crime.  Every state should adopt this policy and enforce it.  This will discourage illegals from entering our nation.  

Parts of similar measures in Arizona, Utah and Indiana also have been blocked by the courts.
Provisions that took effect Friday include one that makes it a felony to use false information or documentation when applying for a job. Another provision creates an immigration review board to investigate complaints about government officials not complying with state laws related to illegal immigration.

This is a huge financial burden for all hard-working American taxpayers. We don't and shouldn't have to support families that do not belong here legally.

And absolutely abolish the "Automatic Citizenship." That way families won't be torn apart when they are finally apprehended.

Sounds, harsh? I don't think so. We need to secure our b
orders and secure them now.
