The  ANT AND THE  GRASSHOPPER   

This one is a little different ........   
Two Different Versions .....   
Two Different Morals

OLD VERSION :   

The  ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The  grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:

Be responsible for yourself!
 
 
MODERN   VERSION :
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The  grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering  grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the  ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving. 

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN,  and  ABC   Show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast. 

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper  is allowed to suffer so? 

Kermit the Frog appears on  Oprah with the  grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being  Green ..'

ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing,  We shall overcome.

Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper's sake. 

President Obama condemns the  ant and blames President Trump, President Bush President Reagan, and Christopher Columbus for the  grasshopper's plight. 

Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer exclaim in an interview with  Anderson Cooper that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the  EEOC  drafts the   Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of  the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of  green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper .

The story ends as we see the  grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the  grasshopper doesn't  maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The  grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now  abandoned, is taken over by a gang of  spiders who terrorize and ramshackle, the once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.

The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it. 

MORAL OF THE STORY:   

Be careful how you vote in 2018 and 2020

Firearms / A/R Pistol build
« on: February 05, 2018, 06:45:28 PM »
So, the need has arisen to build a short AR based pistol with significant smack down power. So the Don will be embarking on creating a .300 AAC pistol with a brace. I decided on the 1-8 twist with a 10.5" barrel.

I used Amazon, AR-15.com and Aim to bring it all together. The only thing mising at this point is the stripped lower, which, in true Kintucky fashion will be the venerable Anderson unit built 10 miles from mi casa.

I set out to build the upper receiver myself, but in the end I was able to find a good fully assembled upper from AR-15 for less money, so here is the upper I will use:

I will be using a typical A2 birdcage flash hider unlike the pic

Message from the Owner / No Superbowl for me!
« on: February 04, 2018, 01:17:05 PM »
I will not be watching the US SuperBowl today

Someone will hopefully record the commercials for me, especially the Marine Corps recruitment one that is rumored to be good.

I don't even know who is playing!!!!!!!!!!!

Had the NFL Leadership taken a strong stance against this kneeling for the flag thing
Had they not come down asymmetrically harder on Christian players for displaying their beliefs publicly
I would enjoy the game as i have every year of my life.

This was a good year of high school sports for me, and I guess, that and college ball will fill the void from the passing of Professional Football from my pool of experience.

Fut from this broke kneed veteran to that nappy headed disrespecter of my flag and nation, son, because of you and your communist self centered, spoiled friends this cowboy is done with your industry.

Message from the Owner / Are you Lukewarm?
« on: January 28, 2018, 09:29:29 AM »
Men of God, come forth!

Are you are man of God? Or just toying with the idea? Are you committed or do you just like the idea of being saved? If the conversation turned toward a direction you are not comfortable with, what do you do? I?ve had them. I remember sitting in the cockpit of a jet working on the flight weight and balance and punching in the flight plan into the computer when a knockout of a beautiful woman appears in plain view boarding the plane. I remember the Captain?s comments, ?Would you look at the t__s on that. I?ve been there for sure. At one point in my life I would enjoy the view. But at another point, I would take that opportunity to tell him that my Jesus who lives in me would not look upon her in that way, and let that dog lie back down.

This is an easy time in our history to remain uncommitted and quiet about your views. Corporate policies everywhere prevent us from expressing our Christian views, while herding us into classrooms to learn about how to handle folks wrestling with their anatomy. You might even have noticed that some viewpoints are more popular and believing in them may at the corporate or military setting you work at, elevate you to some higher plane of human condition than those close minded Christian racists.

I mean, let?s just face it, on the world stage, my crying out ?I just really Love Jesus? (Which is the truth BTW) would be seen as a bigoted comment. Everyone says how Christians hate Gays, how we think everyone is going to hell, how the world is be taken over by evil.

Of course none of that is true, except that evil is enjoying a pretty healthy run-up in their evil stock market endgame, wouldn?t you admit?

So where are you? Non-committal? Non-confrontational? Silent and reserved about your views? I?ll bet that a lot of you are. I can show it to you here on this web site. Go to the home page and look over the stats which show how many registered members and how many guests are viewing. Five to one (Guests vs members) is pretty normal. Allowing that some folks are new here and still working their way around, some of those in the guest (Noncommittal??) side have not made a connection, not made any commitment. But there are others who have been here for years?as guests?They are coming here just like I attend a large stadium to watch the Reds play ball at the All ?American ballfield in Cincy.

Personally, even now, I don?t care to associate with those lukewarm people. (although I do, the old Don is hard to die sometimes). I guess I sort of align with my savior, Jesus, who said:

Revelation 3:14-

To the Church in Laodicea
14 ?To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:
These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God?s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm?neither hot nor cold?I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

I like dealing with the ?cold,? because they don?t know Christ or have walked away from them. I guess I just like a fight, sorry. But they can be easily be dealt with by applying the truth (Scripture) to any of their positions. You don?t have to win the argument or discussion, you just have to deliver the message. God?s word is unchanging, true and like a searchlight in a dark night, it illuminates all that is hidden. Do that and your job is done.

And I just LOVE the ?Hot!? Had lunch with two Mexican evangelists Wednesday. We had a great time. When men on fire for Jesus get together, no matter if they start talking about guns (our case) or trucks, or politics or whatever, the conversation invariably gets to what we love the most?HIM! And that, my friends is fun. I can?t imagine a better thing than sitting down at my farm, all worn out from hard work, sitting around a crackling fire with some folks who are sharing about their lives, their families, and our God and what he is doing in our lives. I just would prefer doing that to anything else. Well, doing something for someone in his name, well, maybe I may like that more, a tie maybe???But what about the ?guest,? the luke-warmer. This is a guy who says he is saved and indeed you see him in church sometimes. But he is not serving anywhere. He doesn?t give much. He is not a part of anything that is happening and he doesn?t have a clue about when or where the prayer warriors meet. Just not a part of his repertoire. I look for them amongst the recruits wishing to join our security team. If they never serve anywhere and they had to be coerced to show up, my money says they are lukewarm.

Witness this: One of my team members is a woman, late 40?s. She has MS. She suffers from all sorts of crap. Her hair fell out. She has times of weakness. She actually goes completely blind for hours at a time every once in a while. But every Sunday afternoon when we hold training, she is there. She shows up at the gym, I hear nearly every day she isn?t sick. Like many of us, if you ask her what the sermon was about, she couldn?t tell you because she was walking the parking lot, or clearing the tree line to the west or acting like a door greeter so she can give everyone coming into our sanctuary a visual as a part of our security system. Lukewarm?? Her? No flippin? way! She is serving out of the very poverty of her life. She is sick, has not much money, but you will 1. Never hear her complain, 2. Always see her with a smile, 3. Always count her to be there and to get in the middle of a fracas to defend the weak kneed Luke warmers who come to warm seats in the service.

Which one are you?

This is a good time in history to make a stand for Christ, no matter the price or continue playing Satan?s script for the socially acceptable politically correct. I spit you out of my mouth. I care not to associate with you. I do wish, however, to warmly invite you into the loving world that our Jesus owns. One where you either belong or you don?t. With respect to this web site, I sort of wish you would leave if you were a luke-warmer, but that?s a bit of the old Don talking. The Christ loving me which has surpassed the 50% point (I hope) wants you to hang around so that we can rub off on you and show you true family, the family of the Christ. It is, after all the most important of all families. In any setting other than a Billy Graham revival meeting or a Christian concert, we will be in the minority, but we are far, FAR stronger than anything the evil master of this world can muster?And he knows it.

So, what about it, which side you want to be on? You really better think it over, and you may not have much time regardless of what you might think. Just last night was an eye-opener for me. I had fasted all day long, praying when I got hunger pains, but committed to go to church denying self in sacrifice for my Lord. I wanted to hear his word first, then planned for a meal afterward. That afterward happened around 2230 at a local restaurant where I ordered eggs, hash browns, and sausage. While eating that meal, I began choking, and no matter what I did, I could not breathe. I suddenly realized I was about to go unconscious when I stood up because I thought that if I just fell over like a redwood crashing down onto the forest floor, maybe the impact would dislodge the piece of food blocking my airway. But at that exact moment, my airway opened just a little. I became aware that my wife was screaming for help and that some big guy was fast approaching, but in all reality, shortly after that moment, I might have died.

Think about that. Fasted all day, then went to church, then choked and died!

You see, you may not make it to the point late in life and after many years where the doc tells you that persistent cough is actually stage 4 which has also spread to your brain and he estimates you have two weeks max. During that imaginary scenario, you would then find the time to come to Jesus, get saved, donate all the porno to your Army buddy and go onto paradise. But, my very lost (And very much in the will of Satan) friend, if no one else has the courage or cares enough to tell you differently, I will. I am a man who desires to speak the truth. I am a man in love with my Lord. Through him, I love my wife and my family, and believe it or not, I love a lot of you. I?m telling you not to be lukewarm, but to commit.

Don?t be lukewarm. Don?t be a coward. Don?t be noncommittal. Stand up for Christ and be counted amongst his!

A commentary about being Lukewarm for Jesus

CIEMR / The Civil War is here? Crap! I haven't finished my Hide yet!
« on: January 24, 2018, 07:33:20 PM »
THE CIVIL WAR IS HERE

The left doesn?t want to secede. It wants to rule.

March 27, 2017

Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

A civil war has begun.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn?t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn?t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don?t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning. 

It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it?s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.

It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become ?patriotic?.

There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that?s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it?s treason.

After losing Congress, the left consolidated its authority in the White House. After losing the White House, the left shifted its center of authority to Federal judges and unelected government officials. Each defeat led the radicalized Democrats to relocate from more democratic to less democratic institutions.

This isn?t just hypocrisy. That?s a common political sin. Hypocrites maneuver within the system. The left has no allegiance to the system. It accepts no laws other than those dictated by its ideology.

Democrats have become radicalized by the left. This doesn?t just mean that they pursue all sorts of bad policies. It means that their first and foremost allegiance is to an ideology, not the Constitution, not our country or our system of government. All of those are only to be used as vehicles for their ideology.

 That?s why compromise has become impossible.

Our system of government was designed to allow different groups to negotiate their differences. But those differences were supposed to be based around finding shared interests. The most profound of these shared interests was that of a common country based around certain civilizational values. The left has replaced these Founding ideas with radically different notions and principles. It has rejected the primary importance of the country. As a result it shares little in the way of interests or values.

Instead it has retreated to cultural urban and suburban enclaves where it has centralized tremendous amounts of power while disregarding the interests and values of most of the country. If it considers them at all, it is convinced that they will shortly disappear to be replaced by compliant immigrants and college indoctrinated leftists who will form a permanent demographic majority for its agenda.

But it couldn?t wait that long because it is animated by the conviction that enforcing its ideas is urgent and inevitable. And so it turned what had been a hidden transition into an open break.

In the hidden transition, its authority figures had hijacked the law and every political office they held to pursue their ideological agenda. The left had used its vast cultural power to manufacture a consensus that was slowly transitioning the country from American values to its values and agendas. The right had proven largely impotent in the face of a program which corrupted and subverted from within.

The left was enormously successful in this regard. It was so successful that it lost all sense of proportion and decided to be open about its views and to launch a political power struggle after losing an election.

The Democrats were no longer being slowly injected with leftist ideology. Instead the left openly took over and demanded allegiance to open borders, identity politics and environmental fanaticism. The exodus of voters wiped out the Democrats across much of what the left deemed flyover country.

The left responded to democratic defeats by retreating deeper into undemocratic institutions, whether it was the bureaucracy or the corporate media, while doubling down on its political radicalism. It is now openly defying the outcome of a national election using a coalition of bureaucrats, corporations, unelected officials, celebrities and reporters that are based out of its cultural and political enclaves.

It has responded to a lost election by constructing sanctuary cities and states thereby turning a cultural and ideological secession into a legal secession. But while secessionists want to be left alone authoritarians want everyone to follow their laws. The left is an authoritarian movement that wants total compliance with its dictates with severe punishments for those who disobey.

The left describes its actions as principled. But more accurately they are ideological. Officials at various levels of government have rejected the authority of the President of the United States, of Congress and of the Constitution because those are at odds with their radical ideology. Judges have cloaked this rejection in law. Mayors and governors are not even pretending that their actions are lawful.

The choices of this civil war are painfully clear.

We can have a system of government based around the Constitution with democratically elected representatives. Or we can have one based on the ideological principles of the left in which all laws and processes, including elections and the Constitution, are fig leaves for enforcing social justice.

But we cannot have both.

Some civil wars happen when a political conflict can?t be resolved at the political level. The really bad ones happen when an irresolvable political conflict combines with an irresolvable cultural conflict.

That is what we have now.

The left has made it clear that it will not accept the lawful authority of our system of government. It will not accept the outcome of elections. It will not accept these things because they are at odds with its ideology and because they represent the will of large portions of the country whom they despise.

The question is what comes next.

The last time around growing tensions began to explode in violent confrontations between extremists on both sides. These extremists were lauded by moderates who mainstreamed their views. The first Republican president was elected and rejected. The political tensions led to conflict and then civil war.

The left doesn?t believe in secession. It?s an authoritarian political movement that has lost democratic authority. There is now a political power struggle underway between the democratically elected officials and the undemocratic machinery of government aided by a handful of judges and local elected officials.

What this really means is that there are two competing governments; the legal government and a treasonous anti-government of the left. If this political conflict progresses, agencies and individuals at every level of government will be asked to demonstrate their allegiance to these two competing governments. And that can swiftly and explosively transform into an actual civil war.

There is no sign that the left understands or is troubled by the implications of the conflict it has initiated. And there are few signs that Democrats properly understand the dangerous road that the radical left is drawing them toward. The left assumes that the winners of a democratic election will back down rather than stand on their authority. It is unprepared for the possibility that democracy won?t die in darkness.

Civil wars end when one side is forced to accept the authority of the other. The left expects everyone to accept its ideological authority. Conservatives expect the left to accept Constitutional authority. The conflict is still political and cultural. It?s being fought in the media and within the government. But if neither side backs down, then it will go beyond words as both sides give contradictory orders.

The left is a treasonous movement. The Democrats became a treasonous organization when they fell under the sway of a movement that rejects our system of government, its laws and its elections. Now their treason is coming to a head. They are engaged in a struggle for power against the government. That?s not protest. It?s not activism. The old treason of the sixties has come of age. A civil war has begun.

This is a primal conflict between a totalitarian system and a democratic system. Its outcome will determine whether we will be a free nation or a nation of slaves.

Note:  The Constitution of the United States:  Article III; Section 3.

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.


(My insert ? just to be clear on treason. The author may be stretching it a bit. Subversives, criminals, anarchists ? yes; also, war is a state of armed conflict between different nations or states or different groups within a nation or state?no war unless involved in an armed conflict ? and remember, treason is determined by the winner--- what we have now are criminals that are not being held accountable--- MDB)

Real Man Knowledge base / Electoral College...Why we need it
« on: January 24, 2018, 09:50:36 AM »
The popular vote in America in lieu of the electoral college would not work.

If we had the popular vote only, then Either New York City, or Chicago or Los Angles would forever more determine who our president is. Fly-over states would never see an active campaign as all the money and time a candidate spends would be centered in the areas of greatest population density

Know the truth...For the truth (along with Jesus) will set you FREE!



After Nov 8, 2016 Presidential Election, those who did not vote for our President Trump, IMMEDIATELY began the rhetoric of editing the Electoral College processes/boundaries.  Believe this occurs several times during each Century!

Within the past 50 years, our Country's foundation has been challenged.  The Electoral College is but one of our Country's "deer in the headlights! "

This break-down of the Electoral College vote is our ?checks and balances ?.

This is so important for our future that it is never changed.

In their infinite wisdom, the founders of our country created a structure called the "Electoral College" as a control system and to ensure the individual states were fairly represented. Otherwise one or two densely populated areas would speak for the whole of the nation. It was not created as a device to favor Democrats, Republicans, Whigs, Tories or any other political affiliation. It was created as a system of "checks and balances " to guard against any small vocal area, with a specific agenda, speaking for the whole of the nation.

The following list of statistics should put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.

Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.

There are 62 counties in New York State.

Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.

Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.

In the 5 counties that encompass NYC (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump.

In other words, Five (5) counties alone , more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote  for the entire country!!!

These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

Large, densely populated cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) do not and should not speak for the rest of our country (They already do in some of our states ) ... and somehow the geniuses who founded our country understood this and created a system to avoid that circumstance.

And now you understand the supreme importance of the Electoral College .

Do share this...  It needs to be understood.

Jeff Bergner: The vanishing Obama presidency

?        By Jeff Bergner     The Virginian-Pilot      Jan 14, 2018   

?        ONE YEAR AGO, Barack Obama?s presidency came to an end. His election as the nation?s first black president was a major accomplishment for him and for the nation. Time will never erase that achievement.

But as time passes, this may be just about his only lasting political accomplishment; his legislative, regulatory and policy initiatives are disappearing rapidly. On domestic policy:

? Energy: The Keystone XL Pipeline has been approved. The Dakota Access Pipeline has been approved and is operational. U.S. energy production is up, and gas prices are down. Deep Obama administration reductions in offshore drilling leases are in the process of being reversed.

? Education: The Obama Education Department?s Title IX ?guidance? to colleges and universities mandating how to treat sexual assault cases has been rescinded. Numerous Education Department programs begun in the Obama administration are being terminated.

? Environment: The Obama EPA?s Clean Power Plan to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant, the implementation of which was already blocked by the Supreme Court, has been rescinded.

? Labor: The Obama-controlled National Labor Relations Board rule treating franchise chains as single employers for the purpose of collective bargaining has been repealed.

? National parks: Obama?s vast additions to U.S. national monuments in Utah have been rescinded.

? Internet: Net neutrality has been repealed.

? Immigration: The Obama executive order on Deferred Action Against Parents of Americans, which was blocked by a federa l court, has been rescinded. His executive order on Deferred Action Against Childhood Arrivals has been rescinded, awaiting potential congressional action.

? Health care: Obamacare has been significantly modified by regulations to allow new, less costly forms of health insurance and by the repeal of the individual mandate. Additional regulatory changes are coming this year. As the health exchanges continue to shrink, the principal impact of Obamacare will be the expansion of Medicaid enrollment.

? Consumer protection: The structure of the Obama-era Consumer Financial Protection Agency has been ruled unconstitutional by the District of Columbia Circuit Court because it is unanswerable to any elected government official. The CFPB is facing additional legal and legislative challenges.

? Economy: The economic recovery beginning in 2009 produced historically slow economic growth, a declining labor participation rate, stagnant wages and increasing food stamp usage. Today?s economy is growing more rapidly, the labor participation rate is up, wages are beginning to rise, and food stamp usage is down.

On foreign policy:

? Military: Reductions in military spending and U.S. troop levels are being reversed.

? ISIS: Changes to the Obama rules of engagement for using military force led to the rapid defeat of ISIS.

? Environment: The United States has announced its intent to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.

? Trade: The United States declined to join the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership.

? Iran nuclear deal: The president has declined to certify the Iran nuclear agreement, which the Obama administration negotiated, setting the stage for withdrawal or modification.

? Syria: The president has used military force to enforce Obama?s ?red line? against Syria?s use of chemical weapons.

? Ukraine: U.S. policy toward Ukraine is changing; the U.S. will now send lethal weapons to assist Ukraine in resisting Russian aggression.

? Cuba: Obama?s opening to Cuba has been put on hold.

? Israel: The United States and Israel have restored their historically close relationship.

? Egypt: The flirtation with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has been replaced by U.S. support for Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

Overall, with the exception of a shrinking Obamacare and the CFPB, no significant initiative of the Obama administration remains in place. The near doubling of the federal debt during his eight-year presidency ? from $10 trillion to $19 trillion ? seems like a very high price to pay for such ephemeral results.

The Obama presidency is vanishing before our eyes. In only 12 short months, the legacy of Obama?s presidency is best captured by the motto of a well-known disaster restoration company: ?like it never even happened.?

Don's Comment: I know that society seems to have moved on and nowadays, cats and dogs living together, men dating men, and young girls having their sex changed all with the blessing of the people around them seemingly now normal. But none of this is normal, healthy, nor Godly in my view. In the case of this abomination which has occurred in a so called chapel at west point points to an ungodly sickness which has gained a solid foothold in a sacred institution of this once great nation. I say once great because in my view greatness is not all physical. It is not necessarily defined by engineering marvels, or advancements of science, or other things of that nature. In my view, greatness is equally related to the strength of the conviction of men, of their courage, moral fiber, and submission to the idea that we were created by a living God, the very one who is responsible for the book George Washington Concentrated this nation to in the 18th Century.

There is nothing normal about marriage of two men. There is nothing normal about joining them in (what holy matrimony?????) in a place where God once called home. There is nothing good about asking men who were raised believing that Jesus is their savior, to accept this abomination of the laws of God and of nature. None of this is right, in fact it points to death. Death of our Christian culture, Death of moral courage. Death of leadership of any kind. Death of common sense, and the killing of the spirit that is in a man of war that is needed most of all in that crucial second that spans the gap where he either succumbs or rises against all odds and wins the day. That is dead and dying, and I greatly mourn its passing.

But not with me. Call me a dinosaur, old guy, whatever. Men do not belong together. They should now be married. They should not have sex, they should not be honored in any way, and NEVER, NEVER should our warfighters have to put up with any of that nonsense!

This happened before and with catastrophic effect. It is well written about and violently ends when two places, a Sodom and a Gomorrah are vaporized by a slow to anger God.

I would so much rather America die on a battlefield, giving its last breath in a last heroic battle against a vastly superior force than to have the sickening  cancer of homosexuality rot it from within.





WEST POINT, N.Y. ? Two Army captains who met at West Point returned there to be married, in what is believed to be the first same-sex marriage of active-duty personnel at the storied New York military academy.

The New York Times reported Captains Daniel Hall, 30, and Vincent Franchino, 26, both stationed at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, were married at West Point?s Cadet Chapel on Jan. 13.

The men met at the school in August 2009, when Franchino was a freshman and Hall was a senior. Their first date was in February 2012 in Washington, some months after the ?don?t ask, don?t tell? policy was repealed in September 2011.

That policy, in place since 1993, barred any gay person from disclosing their sexual orientation or talking about any same-sex relationship.

?It?s really frustrating when two people have feelings for each other but are not allowed to act on them,? Hall said. ?We were serving under a policy that was telling all of us ? perfectly capable soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines ? to lie about ourselves.?

The men wore their uniforms during the ceremony, and left the chapel under an arch made up of sabers held aloft by several of their guests. They also used Hall?s officer saber, a graduation gift from his grandparents, to cut the cake.

Today's kids love socialism ? but it's not because of their radical professors
James Piereson and Naomi Schaefer Riley, Opinion contributors Published 9:38 a.m. ET Jan. 10, 2018 | Updated 6:27 p.m. ET Jan. 10, 2018

American Millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy.

Professors have little influence on student political beliefs compared with peers, 'student life' administrators and campus activists.
Why are young people growing more sympathetic to socialism?

According to a survey conducted late last year by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a third of Americans and as many as 44% of Millennials would prefer to live under a socialist system than a capitalist one. This is more than a little puzzling at a time when socialism has proved a catastrophic failure in its remaining strongholds in Venezuela, North Korea and Cuba.

Some observers blame leftist professors for this development. This makes sense. The renewed sympathy for socialism seems most pronounced among recent college graduates.

It is demonstrably true that professors are overwhelmingly liberal and have become more so in the past three decades. But it is far from clear that classroom indoctrination is driving students to the far left.

In a study published in 2009 of 7,000 students at 38 institutions across the U.S., professors Matthew Woessner and April Kelly-Woessner found that students? political beliefs did not change much during their college years. Even in cases where students? opinions changed, there was little correlation between the direction of the change and the political leanings of their professors. When contacted about these conclusions, Woessner confirmed that although campuses today might seem more radical, his current research suggests that those earlier conclusions are still true.

But if professors are not swaying student opinions in the classroom, what is making them more sympathetic to socialism and less tolerant of conservative views about free markets and limited government?

Author Lenore Skenazy has suggested that students? upbringings are a large part of today?s problems on campus. In her book Free-Range Kids, she argued that parents who try to protect their children from every possible threat or danger deprive them of the freedom to grow up. Naturally, when they arrive on campus as 18-year-olds, they look to professors and administrators to take over the parental role of protecting them from life?s challenges. Thus, ?helicopter parenting? yields ?snowflake? students unable to tolerate uncomfortable opinions.

While this may be true, there are nevertheless organizations and constituencies on the contemporary campus that are in position to gain from protest and unrest. In response to perceived slights, however artificial or exaggerated they may be, activists demand and often receive compensation: greater funding for their programs, promises to hire more members of victimized groups, the creation of programs and courses to promote diversity and multiculturalism on campus, and other concessions of tangible kinds.

In these efforts, there seems to be an unholy alliance of students, diversity administrators and faculty members representing multicultural programs. These alliances are rarely formed in the classroom or in the traditional research disciplines. The growing radicalism on campus seems to originate instead in the broad category of student life that takes place outside the classroom.

A 2014 study, for instance, found that students who spent a greater number of hours on extracurricular activities on campus (as opposed to classroom studies) were more likely to see their politics move toward one extreme or the other, in most cases toward the far left.

Kyle Dodson, assistant professor of sociology at the University of California-Merced, looked at data from the UCLA?s Freshman Survey and the College Senior Survey. He found that time spent in academic pursuits has a moderating influence on students? political views. Students who are occupied with classroom studies are less likely to engage in disruptive or illiberal activities on campus.

More: Come out of the political closet in 2018 and help heal our divide

POLICING THE USA: A look at race, justice, media

This is an encouraging conclusion as it suggests that students who are more serious about their academic work are more likely to think for themselves and less likely to be drawn into disruptive political activities.

But there is a catch: College students are spending less and less time in classrooms and academic study. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics analyzed by the Heritage Foundation in 2014, college students spend fewer than three hours per day on classroom-related activities. It is thus not surprising to find that professors have little influence on student political beliefs compared with the enormous sway of peers, ?student life? administrators and activists who are in charge of campus extracurricular activities.

This should be a wake-up call for faculty and administrators who still believe that a college education should involve classroom learning and the exposure of students to important ideas. As faculty have stepped back from their roles as the primary intellectual guides for students ? teaching fewer hours, spending more time on research and publishing for their colleagues in the field, requiring students to take fewer general education requirements ? other adults and peers have stepped in to fill the void, much to the detriment of academic learning and liberal ideals on campus.

If moderate and liberal professors want to take back the campus from illiberal activists who reject open debate and a marketplace of ideas, then a good place to start would be to reemphasize academics as the raison d?etre of university life. ?Student life? should first and foremost be the life of the mind.

Medical Corner / You're Alone and have a Heart Attack...
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:19:52 AM »
 1. Let?s say it?s 7.25pm and you?re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.

2. You?re really tired, upset and frustrated.
 
3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.

 4. Unfortunately you don?t know if you?ll be able to make it that far.

 5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy who taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

 6. HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
 
8. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.
 
9. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!
 
10. A cardiologist says If everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we?ll save at least one life.
 
11. Rather than sending jokes, please... contribute by forwarding this mail which can save a person?s life.

12. If this message comes around you... more than once? please don?t get irritated... You should instead, be happy that you have many friends who care about you & keeps reminding you how to deal with a Heart attack

CIEMR / Tear Down the Statue of Liberty: New liberal idea
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:06:42 AM »
This was written by Rosemary LaBonte to the editors of a California newspaper in response to an article written by Ernie Lujan who suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the immigrants of today aren?t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry. The paper never printed this response, so her husband sent it out via internet.




Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented.



Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made LEARNING ENGLISH a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.



They had waved goodbye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, NO WELFARE, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.



Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan . None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan . They were defending the United States of America as one people.




When we liberated France , no one in those villages were looking for the French American, the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.


And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country.

I'm sorry, that's NOT what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900's deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.


And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty , it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill.

I wouldn't start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

Construction and Building / Paint out buildings same or different color??
« on: January 18, 2018, 08:53:30 AM »
So, as you knuckleheads (and some boneheads) know, I am off building yet another shed/building/thing down at the farm.

I am at the point where I need to decide and go buy the paint for the thing.

Now the main shed/house/building/barn thing is red with green trim and a green metal roof, and so is the outhouse, they match.

The camper is light-mid gray with green trim and a gray roof, and so is the water containment structure built along side it.

The pavillion and the newly constructed deck is unfinished as of now awaiting more woody parts before staining/painting

Further down, maybe 200 meters south, and visible are two large hunter green water storage tanks and they will reside alongside a similar colored pump house (Because I wish that all to sort of blend into the landscape.

My thoughts were to stain those structures an oxford brown with maybe a hunter green trim, and both of them have green metal roofs.

This new shed will sit across from the shed, perhaps 25 feet away in a landscaped flower bed and rock wall looking area.

I am not really wanting to do red/green with a green roof scheme again, but I was wondering if it may make the arrangement look a bit junky

But I want to do something a bit different and "pretty" for the lady. She is a bit tired of my OD green theme all the time, and all that

So, not that I am going to pay any attention what so ever, but what say yee?  Poll time??

Gun Control / Yea, so let's get to know the gun control gurus
« on: January 06, 2018, 09:22:09 PM »
Nobody wants to take your guns?
Bringing this forward from my old blog:
Whenever I, or others, object to registration or bans on transfers, or other forms of gun control and firearms restrictions as steps toward an eventual complete prohibition and the confiscation that such would necessarily entail, we get told we?re paranoid and ?nobody wants to take your guns.?
Well, perhaps we should consider these nobodies?
A gun-control movement worthy of the name would insist that President Clinton move beyond his proposals for controls? And immediately call on Congress to pass far-reaching industry regulation like the Firearms Safety and Consumer Protection Act? Which would give the Treasury Department health and safety authority over the gun industry, and any rational regulator with that authority would ban handguns. Josh Sugarmann (executive director of the Violence Policy Center)
My view of guns is simple. I hate guns and I cannot imagine why anyone would want to own one. If I had my way, guns for sport would be registered, and all other guns would be banned. Deborah Prothrow-Stith (Dean of Harvard School of Public Health)
I don?t care if you want to hunt, I don?t care if you think it?s your right. I say ?Sorry. It?s 1999. We have had enough as a nation. You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun I think you should go to prison.? Rosie O?Donnell (At about the time she said this, Rosie engaged the services of a bodyguard who applied for a gun permit.)
Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option, keep your gun but permit it. Andrew Cuomo
I do not believe in people owning guns. Guns should be owned only by [the] police and military. I am going to do everything I can to disarm this state. Michael Dukakis
If someone is so fearful that they are going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, it makes me very nervous that these people have weapons at all. U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman
In fact, the assault weapons ban will have no significant effect either on the crime rate or on personal security. Nonetheless, it is a good idea? Passing a law like the assault weapons ban is a symbolic, purely symbolic move in that direction. Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation. Charles Krauthammer, columnist, 4/5/96 Washington Post
Ban the damn things. Ban them all. You want protection? Get a dog. Molly Ivins, columnist, 7/19/94
To get a permit to own a firearm, that person should undergo an exhaustive criminal background check. In addition, an applicant should give up his right to privacy and submit his medical records for review to see if the person has ever had a problem with alcohol, drugs or mental illness . . . The Constitution doesn?t count!?  John Silber, former chancellor of Boston University and candidate for Governor of Massachusetts. Speech before the Quequechan Club of Fall River, MA. August 16, 1990
I think you have to do it a step at a time and I think that is what the NRA is most concerned about. Is that it will happen one very small step at a time so that by the time, um, people have woken up, quote, to what?s happened, it?s gone farther than what they feel the consensus of American citizens would be. But it does have to go one step at a time and the banning of semi assault military weapons that are military weapons, not household weapons, is the first step. Mayor Barbara Fass, Stockton, CA
Handguns should be outlawed. Our organization will probably take this stand in time but we are not anxious to rouse the opposition before we get the other legislation passed. Elliot Corbett, Secretary, National Council for a Responsible Firearms Policy (interview appeared in the Washington Evening Star on September 19, 1969)
Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe. Senator Diane Feinstein, 1993
If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them? Mr. and Mrs. America, turn em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren?t here. U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) CBS-TVs 60 Minutes, 2/5/95
Banning guns is an idea whose time has come. U.S. Senator Joseph Biden, 11/18/93, Associated Press interview
Yes, I?m for an outright ban (on handguns).Pete Shields, Chairman emeritus, Handgun Control, Inc., during a 60 Minutes interview.
I am one who believes that as a first step, the United States should move expeditiously to disarm the civilian population, other than police and security officers, of all handguns, pistols, and revolvers? No one should have the right to anonymous ownership or use of a gun. Professor Dean Morris, Director of Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, stated to the U.S. Congress
I feel very strongly about it [the Brady Bill]. I think, I also associate myself with the other remarks of the Attorney General. I think it?s the beginning. It?s not the end of the process by any means. William J. Clinton, 8/11/93
The Brady Bill is the minimum step Congress should take, we need much stricter gun control, and eventually should bar the ownership of handguns, except in a few cases. U.S. Representative William Clay, quoted in the St. Louis Post Dispatch on May 6, 1991.

I don?t believe gun owners have rights? Sarah Brady, Hearst Newspapers Special Report Handguns in America, October 1997
We must get rid of all the guns? Sarah Brady, speaking on behalf of HCI with Sheriff Jay Printz & others on The Phil Donahue Show? September 1994
The House passage of our bill is a victory for this country! Common sense wins out. I?m just so thrilled and excited. The sale of guns must stop. Halfway measures are not enough. Sarah Brady 7/1/88
I don?t care about crime, I just want to get the guns. Senator Howard Metzenbaum, 1994
We?re here to tell the NRA their nightmare is true?? U.S. Representative Charles Schumer, quoted on NBC, 11/30/93
My bill establishes a 6-month grace period for the turning in of all handguns. U.S. Representative Major Owens, Congressional Record, 11/10/93
I?m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We?re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily? Given the political realities? Going to be very modest. Of course, it?s true that politicians will then go home and say, this is a great law. The problem is solved. And it?s also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time. So then well have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we?d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal? Total control of handguns in the United States? Is going to take time. My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition? Except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors? Totally illegal. Nelson T. Shields of Handgun Control, Inc. as quoted in `New Yorker? Magazine July 26, 1976. Page 53f

 Our goal is to not allow anybody to buy a handgun. In the meantime, we think there ought to be strict licensing and regulation.

California Senate Bill 47 (Yee 2013) would expand the definition of an Assault Weapons to include rifles that have been designed/sold and or equipped to use the bullet button or similar device.
SB47 would ban on the sale and possession of ALL those Semi-Auto rifles and require registration to retain legal possession in the future.
California Assembly Bill 174 (Bonta 2013) would ban the possession of any firearms that were grandfathered for possession if registered in previous Assault Weapons gun control schemes.
Californians that trusted the State of California and registered their firearms will be required to surrender the firearms to the Government or face arrest. Passage of AB174 would make SB374/SB47 (above) into confiscation mandates.
California Senate Bill 396 (Hancock 2013) would ban the possession of any magazine with a capacity to accept more than 10 cartridges. ALL currently grandfathered high-cap magazines would become ILLEGAL to possess and the owners subject to arrest and the magazines confiscated. (High-cap means a capacity that has been standard, that the firearms were designed for, since the 40s AK pattern rifles or 60s AR pattern rifles.)

NJ.com editorial boards advocates for mandatory gun buybacks.

http://www.nj.com/opinion/index.ssf/2014/09/nj_gun_buyback_programs.html

So do all the voluntary gun buybacks you want. But until they are mandatory, and our society can see past its hysteria over gun confiscation, don?t expect it to make much difference.

Gun Surrender without the anonymous provision:
We?ll take that weapon into safekeeping as a matter of practice. It?s pretty easy, he said of the surrender process. We are working to find ways in which we can make it easier for people to turn in weapons and firearms.
Callers will provide their name, telephone number and address, and the reason for surrender. Once the firearm has been checked to see if it was involved in a crime police will mark it for destruction.
(So, basically, people with illegal guns, or guns used in crime, will stay away in droves.  The only purpose of such a provision is to take legally owned guns from people.)
Another shooting in another gun-free zone (Florida requires guns on college campuses to be locked up and cannot be carried) leads to calls for gun prohibition:
I?m talking about flat-out banning the possession of handguns and assault rifles by individual citizens. I?m talking about repealing or amending the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Gun Control / Never ending assault upon our basic rights
« on: January 06, 2018, 09:20:16 PM »
Ya know, I just don't get it.

Why do socialists, liberals, democrats, and a host of others seek to control guns, register them, prevent their purchase, regulate them, remove them from us, modify their operation and invade our privacy?

We all know that removing the guns from legal citizens will not remove all guns

The military will still have them
Law enforcement will still have them
and, right
Criminals will still have them.
But wait, then if a criminal uses a gun he is not allowed to own to kill someone, is he then committing a crime?

It's backwards day again folks, and we need to pay attention to what's going on.

I for one have an idea I wish to have my congressman examine and somehow craft into what would become the law of the land.

Gun control activists try to invade my privacy every chance they get. Lists, gun registration, forms and tests to carry a weapon concealed, and so forth.

Here's what I propose:

I'd like to see the medical records of everyone who has some authority over this issue as it pertains to me. If you are a congressman or senator, governor, state version of the prior listed, I want access to your health records.
You see, I want to see if YOU are in any way mentally handicapped, ever diagnosed with any mental disorder, taken any psychosomatic drug, or similar.

Hey, fair is fair, right? You gun grabbers want to say we military are mentally handicapped...You do that by having your VA hospitals say that everyone who ever served in combat as having some degree of PTSD. They you say PTSD is a mental disorder...OK, fine, if that is the standard, then let's apply it equally. I'd say if you were ever diagnosed as ADD, or any of those new big pharma money making brands, then you too are mentally incapacitated. Used certain drugs? Same boat. Ever been under the care of a physician for any mental issue, attempted suicide, broke down over stress? Well, then would you then still be legally capable of enacting legislation?

Say you drink a lot...hmmm... You made public statements displaying your hatred for the dreaded gun? Does this perhaps hint of a greater problem? A full blown phobia perhaps? Well, I certainly think so, Let's do a mental exam if you please, and can I pick the doctor? I know a good one fresh out of SOCOM who you may not agree with, but boy, can he write a report!

Yea, so let's just level the playing field. I call this game, "You show me your stupid, and I'll show you mine!

Fun eh?

CIEMR / Navy Jack again

NavyJack - The DeepState Endgame


Immediately following the election we commenced Operation Hypo. As I noted in the after action report, a new phase of infiltration and investigation was launched to penetrate the "resistance" movement that had been formed to obstruct the President and attempt to remove him from power.

Our efforts started by infiltrating a George Soros led group named "Democracy Alliance".  This organization is singularly focused on undermining the President and financially supporting a myriad of efforts towards that objective. We learned early on in our investigation that high ranking Government officials that had tried to undermine Candidate Trump prior to the election had created an "insurance policy" strategy to undermine his administration both during the transition period and following inauguration. We also learned that the coordinated effort included a significant number of Republicans who had been active in the "NeverTrump" movement during the primaries and lead-up to the General election. You can learn more about these efforts and the individuals involved here.

Using foreign agents like Chris Steele (former MI6) and his Russian counter-intelligence sources the document we now refer to as the "Dossier" came into existence.  What people do not seem to realize is that the Dossier was never intended to be an opposition research document to aid the Clinton campaign against the GOP candidate Donald Trump. The Dossier was always intended to provide justification and cover for CIA and FBI counter-intelligence operations led by Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.


McCabe was supported by a host of Obama Administration cabinet members, including James Clapper, Susan Rice and John Brennan. Their plan was simple; never allow Donald Trump to occupy the Oval Office. Their plan failed. They did have a backup "insurance" plan now named "RussiaGate".  The RussiaGate insurance policy has but one purpose; to remove Donald Trump from office as quickly as possible, to ensure the survival of what many have labeled "DeepState".

The "RussiaGate" plan required the neutering of the incoming administration's Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. To that end, reports were provided to the media and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to attempt to force his recusal on issues related to "RussiaGate", the 2016 election and any matter concerning Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was instrumental in this element of the plan. He successfully convinced Mr. Sessions that he would be able to complete an investigation of Russian Interference and possible collusion with the Trump Campaign without the need to hire a Special Counsel.  This assurance was the basis for Mr. Sessions to agree to recuse himself from these matters. Mr. Rosenstein then immediately set off to create the conditions necessary to require a Special Counsel assignment by convincing President Trump that the removal of James Comey as Director of the FBI was warranted. Following the President's removal of Mr. Comey, Mr. Rosenstein immediately moved to assign Robert Mueller as Special Counsel. You can learn more about this aspect of the insurance policy here.

What many people do not seem to appreciate is that RussiaGate and the efforts to undermine and remove President Trump from office are not related to any loyalty to Hillary Clinton. They are motivated by the need to ensure the continued cover-up of illegal activities perpetrated by our Nation's intelligence community under the Obama administration.

Since early 2009, the FBI and the CIA with the assistance of the DOJ have been instrumental it the cover-up of events, including the arming of ISIS, Fast & Furious, Uranium One and Benghazi. These events would have quickly been exposed if the FBI and the DOJ had pursued charges against Hillary Clinton for her the home-brew email server. All of the evidence is in her emails.



I would love to tell you that the efforts of the resistance and DeepState to undermine the current President and his administration are coming to an end, but that is simply not the case. I would love to tell you that the efforts of the DOJ Inspector General, Mr. Horowitz, would fully expose the depths of corruption that have been uncovered by our efforts documented in the links above. That too is simply not going to happen. I am certain that the DOJ will never prosecute its own leadership or the leadership of the FBI involved in these criminal activities. From my perspective, justice can only be achieved with an outside prosecutor, armed with the ability to subpoena witnesses, convene a Grand Jury and issue indictments.

We will continue to keep a close eye on the individuals involved in the DeepState Endgame going into 2018. Interim updates are posted on my twitter timeline and moments here.

 Last Friday I went to my local truck stop for dinner and sat next to a truck driver and he seemed to be in a good mood so as we waited for our dinners we started to talk.  He is a few years younger than I and has been driving long-haul trucks for the past ten years.
  As many of the other long-haulers, the career change was forced for a reason and it was his farm went bankrupt.  He kept the house and five acres of land and the rest went to auction, so he took up long-hauling.
  I asked him why he was so upbeat and he said he just got a job offer from a local farm equipment dealer.  It seems that because of Trump's tax cuts, farmers are now ordering new equipment and he needed a new salesman.
  Thank you, Pres. Trump!

Over the Christmas holiday, while in my softer mood, I have thought about how to me, all of you are "knucklehead" or "Bonehead" or similar.

Not fair lumping you all into a group where you obviously belong, however not taking note of who you really are

While thinking about it I realized that:

Shawn is the instigator of things and agitator of people (ITAP or "The I-Tap")

Kenneth, his alter-ego is just a nice guy...Part bonehead, we can all agree, but a nice guy. He serves to be everyone's friend, their buddy. So I guess for now on, he's "Buddy-Ken" or just "B-K"...Edit: Naw strike that. I just watched Shawn take another shot at Ken. I immediately realized Ken's nick name ought to be "Dart-Board"

Mikey, aka Cudda kid (or something like that) is the cunning one. Able to twist anything anyone said in earnest into something pun-like and humorous. A great twister of the truth, he shall be "The Pun man from Chicago"

Charles, the Texas Red Neck watches from the shadows and waits for the perfect time and setup. While we go about debating this or that, he comes in with the precision of a supreme court justice and fires the kill shot. He shall be "The Sniper"

Bobby, Bobby is just plain old grunt! Can I get an amen...Grunt it is!

Blaine is a grunt as well. A killa at heart, he still carries a badge, so we aren't going to mess with him for now...Staunch-Up!

JR is this big lovable old (Emphasis on old) guy, once a cop, with the heart of a servant. Him...??? I'm feelin, "Pops"

We have a couple Daves'. Heck walk in any room with three men, and you have a couple Daves'! ;-)) One is a smart butt, and, well, the other one is too. We probably have twenty or thirty other daves, but who's counting. Whenever I think of either of these two some words immediately come to mind: Shut Up Dave! So either one of then is SUT! Make the louder one SUT-up, and the close contender SUT-JST (Just stop talkin')

Well, with an advertised torque rating of a whole bunch, I purchased Dewalt's premier impact gun a few months ago, and used it (Tried to anyway) on the GJ suspension project.

In a word: It's a total waste of money and plastic. I doubt it could loosen a rusted #4 screw!

Im evaluation never really took place because that thing never actually loosened a single nut...NOT ONE!

I started on the lug nuts. Nada...Just noise and ratchet like sounds. I pulled out my 1/2" harbor freight earthquake tool and bam! Lug nuts spun off like butter!

Tried to loosen the lower shock bolts and again it failed. I switched batteries twice, one time pulling one off the charger. It couldn't loosen anything.

Piece of junk, evaluation complete.

EXCLUSIVE: Six U.S Agencies Conspired to Illegally Wiretap Trump; British Intel Used as NSA Front to Spy on Campaign
Posted on September 20, 2017 by Investigative Bureau

From the beginning it was a set up to find dirt on Trump campaign insiders and if possible to topple Donald Trump?s presidential aspirations.

Before and after the 2016 election. And while this operation had many moving parts and alternating players, the mission to unseat Trump never changed. And it remains ongoing.

Paul Manafort was wiretapped. Cater Page was wiretapped. Donald Trump Jr. was wiretapped. Jared Kushner was wiretapped. Gen. Michael Flynn was wiretapped. And likely there were others.

And none of it was very legal.

In fact, most of it was very illegal, according to federal law enforcement sources who are blowing the whistle on a sweeping scheme to undermine the Executive branch and the electorate?s choice for president of the United States.

 And according to high ranking FBI sources, the Bureau played a definitive role in plotting this sweeping privacy breach. But the FBI had much help from the NSA, CIA, the Office of of the Director of National Intelligence, Treasury financial crimes division under DHS, and the Justice Department, federal law enforcement sources confirmed.

The Deep State caretakers involved are familiar names: James Comey (FBI), John Brennan (CIA), James Clapper (ODNI), Loretta Lynch (DOJ), Jeh Johnson (DHS), Admiral Michael Rogers (NSA). And then-director of GCHQ Robert Hannigan who has since resigned from the esteemed British spy agency.

President Barack Obama?s White House too could be implicated, sources said. But while evidence certainly points to involvement of the Obama administration, sources said they did not have access to definitive intelligence proving such a link.

Here is what we now know, per intelligence gleaned form federal law enforcement sources with insider knowledge of what amounts to a plot by U.S. intelligence agencies to secure back door and illegal wiretaps of President Trump?s associates:

Six U.S. agencies created a stealth task force, spearhead by CIA?s Brennan, to run domestic surveillance on Trump associates and possibly Trump himself.
To feign ignorance and to seemingly operate within U.S. laws, the agencies freelanced the wiretapping of Trump associates to the British spy agency GCHQ.
The decision to insert GCHQ as a back door to eavesdrop was sparked by the denial of two FISA Court warrant applications filed by the FBI to seek wiretaps of Trump associates.
GCHQ did not work from London or the UK. In fact the spy agency worked from NSA?s headquarters in Fort Meade, MD with direct NSA supervision and guidance to conduct sweeping surveillance on Trump associates.
The illegal wiretaps were initiated months before the controversial Trump dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele.
The Justice Department and FBI set up the meeting at Trump Tower between Trump Jr., Manafort and Kushner with controversial Russian officials to make Trump?s associates appear compromised.
Following the Trump Tower sit down, GCHQ began digitally wiretapping Manafort, Trump Jr., and Kushner.
After the concocted meeting by the Deep State, the British spy agency could officially justify wiretapping Trump associates as an intelligence front for NSA because the Russian lawyer at the meeting Natalia Veselnitskaya was considered an international security risk and prior to the June sit down was not even allowed entry into the United States or the UK, federal sources said.
By using GCHQ, the NSA and its intelligence partners had carved out a loophole to wiretap Trump without a warrant. While it is illegal for U.S. agencies to monitor phones and emails of U.S. citizens inside the United States absent a warrant, it is not illegal for British intelligence to do so. Even if the GCHQ was tapping Trump on U.S. soil at Fort Meade.
The wiretaps, secured through illicit scheming, have been used by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller?s probe of alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 election, even though the evidence is considered ?poisoned fruit.?
Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who spearheaded the Trump Tower meeting with the Trump campaign trio, was previously barred from entering the United Sates due to her alleged connections to the Russian FSB (the modern replacement of the cold-war-era KGB).

Yet mere days before the June meeting, Veselnitskaya was granted a rare visa to enter the United States from Preet Bharara, the then U.S. Attorney for the southern district of New York. Bharara could not be reached for comment and did not respond the a Twitter inquiry on the Russian?s visa by True Pundit.
 
Thomas Paine
@Thomas1774Paine
Replying to @PreetBharara
Mr. Bharara, @PreetBharara Why did you sign off a rare visa allowing Ms. Veselnitskaya into the United States? She was banned by @StateDept


Federal law enforcement sources said Bharara was simply following the orders of Attorney General Lynch, who lobbied the State Department to issue the disavowed Russian a B1/B2 non-immigrant visa. This permitted Veselnitskaya entry into the United States for the sole purpose of entrapping Trump associates to use as fuel to commission wiretaps, federal sources said.

Veselnitskaya may have been paid as well by the U.S. government, FBI sources said. It was reported last week that Steele, who compiled the Trump dossier was paid at least $100,000 from FBI funds as well. But that came later, after the wiretapping was well underway.
The illegal eavesdropping started long before Steele?s dossier. Federal sources said the wiretaps on Trump insiders began in late 2015, almost a year before the 2016 election. The targets then were Flynn and Page, sources confirmed. When no smoking gun was recovered from those initial taps, U.S. intelligence agencies moved to broaden the scope through their newly-formed alliance.

Intelligence garnered from the British eavesdropping, which again was merely a front for the NSA, was then used in August 2016 to secure a legitimate FISA warrant on Manafort, Trump Jr. and Kushner. That warrant was issued on or about September, 2016, federal sources confirm.

It was the third time the cabal of U.S. intelligence agencies sought a FISA warrant for the Trump associates and this time it was approved.

FBI sources said finally obtaining the FISA warrant was important because it provided the agencies cover for previous illegal wiretapping which they believed would never be discovered.

?This would make for an incredible string of Senate hearings,? one federal law enforcement source said. ?I don?t think they ever thought he (Trump) would win and information would come out about how they manipulated evidence.?

We of the Christian belief should make some attempt to learn and understand this growing Islamic culture.

A veteran of several wars and many combat tours of duty, I really wish it were otherwise, but the truth is striking in its blatent hatred for us

Today's lesson:

 Koran 3:28, 4:89, 4:144, 5:54, 6:40, 9:23 all have the same message; 58:22 simply states that true Muslims do not befriend non-Muslims?"even if they be their fathers, sons, brothers, or kin." But Koran verses further call on Muslims to have enmity?hate?for non-Muslims: "We [Muslims] renounce you [non-Muslims]. Enmity and hate shall forever reign between us?till you believe in Allah alone"

Just sickens me

Bad enough that Islam is awash with homosexual sodomy any Thursday night with the use of younger boys, that is reason enough to bar that culture, but now this???

CIEMR / The NFL's moral compass is all screwed up!
« on: December 20, 2017, 10:09:42 AM »
And this is the biggest part of the reason I no longer view or support the NFL:

In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made him take it off.

In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

 In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure" eye black for breast cancer awareness..

 In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence.(Not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem...)

In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.

So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression, all of a sudden...It seem quite clear based on these facts that the NFL has taken a position against any action by NFL players demonstrating RESPECT for any issue:  For God, social causes such as mental health, cancer, domestic violence, for cops killed arbitrarily for being cops, for the Memory of 9/11...

But, they will allow demonstrations of DISRESPECT for our National Flag, our National Anthem, for America, and for the American People, if it will help mollify a particular group and its supporters such as BLM, and other leftists..

Obama has had an extremely difficult time relinquishing the power he was held as president of the Untied States, as he?s spent every waking moment in recent months obsessing on ways to take out President Trump with his ?resistance movement.? Despite now being a civilian, Obama has been holding diplomatic meetings with world leaders, which is a direct violation of the Logan Act and a very serious federal crime. As Obama continues to try to assert his power over President Trump, now a former United Nations ambassador is going rogue, revealing that Obama is now actively engaging in the first coup d??tat in Amercican History against a sitting president.

Over the past couple of weeks, Obama?s Asian tour has been underway, where he?s been going around bashing President Trump?s policies to world leaders across the globe. Obama was first suspiciously seen with President Xi Jinping of China, following Trump?s successful visit just a few short weeks ago. Obama then made his way to France, claiming that the United States is suffering from a ?temporary absence of American leadership.?  While he was in India, Obama mocked President Trump with a teenage girl-like jab, saying that he has more Twitter fans than Trump.

While Obama?s ?Bash Trump World Tour? seems to be motivated out of his obsessive jealousy of Trump holding the office he once had, former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton revealed that there?s something far more malicious at play, as he believes that Obama is actively trying to overthrow Trump?s Administration, and isn?t hesitating to break federal law to get the job done. The Gateway Pundit reported:

Lou Dobbs and Ambassador Bolton discussed the latest developments in the Mueller witch hunt and Barack Obama?s latest tour across Asia to attack sitting President Trump. ??this is the first coup d??tat in American History,? Bolton stated.  ?It?s a mini coup d??tat but it goes right along with the idea that they (liberals) should have won the election..They are trying to prove the administration is illegitimate.

Working with foreign governments to overthrow the President of the Untied States as Obama is actively doing is a serious federal crime as spelled out in 18 U.S. Code 2385 that could land him 20 years in behind bars. Working with foreign governments is additionally a violation of the Logan Act, as citizens are prohibited from negotiating with foreign governments in order to undermine our government. Here?s the exact definition of Local Act that Obama is directly violating with these meetings with world leaders via Wikipedia:

The Logan Act enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States. The intent behind the Act is to prevent unauthorized negotiations from undermining the government?s position. The Act was passed following George Logan?s unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony.

Faith Discussion / Mini-Sermon 1: God, in spite of ourselves
« on: December 08, 2017, 11:23:15 AM »
God, In Spite of ourselves.

I think that God is the same today as he was in some distant past, and he will be the same God throughout all days of some unimaginable distant future. He just does what he does all the time. He gets through, whether we work to promote him or not. A poorly delivered message from him is just as effective as a lifetime of preaching by Billy Graham. He just will win every time, all the time?Thy will be done.

Ever feel called to do something for him? Do you know the voice of the messenger? Is it a voice at all to you? Some claim to hear it, others not. I did once. My sheep know my voice, he tells us and at that moment I knew it was God himself speaking, yes actually speaking, but so far down as to be just above the threshold of hearing.
He is always there, never does he take his eye off of us. He is always working for us or through us for others that his perfect will be done. So please be suspect when a sudden feeling or urge to do something which ?feels? like it may have come from him emerges in your consciousness. I would encourage that you have a ?my sheep know my voice? moment, act on it. You just may have a major impact on someone and possibly avoid consequences in your own life. Remember that God is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14) and he wants our attention.

Consider Jonah for a moment. God asked him to do something ?Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.? (Jonah 1:2). But Jonah, even with full knowledge that he actually just heard God himself speak decided not to obey. Nope, he thinks to himself, this Nineveh is a city of Assyrians who were always bitter enemies of the congealing Jewish nation, I just think I?ll bypass this one and catch a boat ride home.

Well we know how that turned out?Not so well to be cast out of a boat at sea and then be eaten by a really big fish. Probably wasn?t all that much fun for the fish either, come to think about it. So here we can see in this well-known biblical story that disobeying God has its consequences, kind of like sin. Speaking of Sin, one night at a men?s group meeting years back I was listening to a man who had lost his wife and family, job, and friends because he chose pornography over them. With teary eyes he stood in our group and reached into his pocket to pull out some loose change. He said if you sin it?s like taking this hand full of coins and tossing them into the air. There are consequences to sin. With that he tossed the coins up, maybe six feet and they separated and rained down and ran every which way on the floor. Looking at us, he continues, ?You end up picking up the pieces of what you had and trying to put it back together if you can.?

But in that visually encapsulating moment where the rolling and bouncing pennies and nickels were going everywhere, it was clear that a once neat and gathered collection of coins were now scattered and some undoubtedly having been lost.

Jonah tossed God?s command out the window of his SS Camaro, downshifted to third, and smashed the skinny pedal. Heck with that business, I?m outta here he thought. And this is just his disobedience and the effect it had on him. But what effect did it have on others? God had something in mind, and he asked this early prophet to do something, which Jonah refused to do.
Let?s read further in the scripture to see the overall consequences to this disobedience. So God asked Jonah a second time to go to the city of Nineveh and tell them to repent, and this time Jonah did.
Nineveh was so big that it took Jonah three days to traverse its breath and width and he proclaimed to everyone he could find, ?Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.? (Jonah 3:4). So we see that he was finally obedient, and in that obedience it is clear that he was under God?s protection. Just like a special envoy of the president is endowed with special authority and privilege, so was this messenger of God.
Looking further into this we can see that when ?on a mission from God? (Blues Brothers movie) you are in the will of God, and being in the will of God means you are safe, and you will succeed. Do you see that? It?s important to walk away with knowing that if you live and act within the will of God and not the will of me, you will be successful.
Jonah goes into the heart of the enemy city where if anything he was not safe, and told them, ?You knuckleheads are all wrong and you have to change your ways to honor my God or he?s gonna take you out!? Gutsy eh? In the secular view, sure is. But we Christians see it as something else. Exercising faith to the highest degree. Yup, I should be dead here, coming into the heart of my enemy?s city and calling him out, but no harm has come to me, he must have thought.
Then look what happened, the people repented and put on sack cloth (That burlap that was wrapped around that new pear tree in the front yard, sack cloth) (Jonah 3:5-9) and even the king put the sack cloth on and sat down in a pile of dust.
This single act of obedience turned an entire city, perhaps an entire nation from evil to repentance. That likely saved the Assyrian from God?s wrath which often worked against them with death and destruction.
Doing what God commands us to do is a good thing. It aligns with his will. It protects us. He provides everything we need to take the ball in for the touchdown. Obedience to his commands spreads peace, staves off death and destruction, and heals. Obedience to the perfect will of God and to his prompting produces a world of good.

So next time you?re in the middle of the conversation where your buddy is sharing his fear of losing his job, or of having cancer or not knowing how to make things right with his wife, do not set aside the chance to align with God?s perfect will. That perfect will was sent to us in the person of Jesus, the Christ. Tell that person about him. Do not be ashamed, don?t worry how it makes look. I guarantee that regardless of how the world may view it, you father who is always watching will be well pleased?And that, my friend is something you dearly want.

CIEMR / Going around: The Angry Man
« on: December 07, 2017, 04:06:38 PM »
THE ANGRY MAN

 

The Angry Man is difficult to stereotype. He comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from sophisticated urbanite to rural redneck, Deep South to Yankee North, Left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

No matter where he?s from, Angry Men share many common traits; they aren?t asking for anything from anyone other than the promise to be able to make their own way on a level playing field.

In many cases, they are independent businessmen and employ several people. They pay more than their share of taxes and they work hard. Damn hard, for what they have and intend to keep.

He?s used to picking up the tab, whether it?s the Christmas party for the employees at his company, three sets of braces, college educations or a beautiful wedding or two. Not because he was forced to, but because it?s the right thing to do.

The Angry Man believes the Constitution should be interpreted as it was written. It is not as a ?living document? open to the whims and vagaries of appointed judges and political winds.

The Angry Man owns firearms, and he?s willing to pick up a gun and use it in defense of his home, his country and his family. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone if necessary to achieve those goals gives him only momentary pause.

The Angry Man is not, and never will be, a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina. He got his people together and got the hell out. Then, he went back in to rescue those who needed help or were too stupid to help themselves in the first place. He was selfless in this, just as often a civilian as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter.

Victimhood syndrome buzzwords; ?disenfranchised,? ?marginalized? and ?voiceless? don?t resonate with The Angry Man. ?Press ?one? for English? is a curse-word to him.

His last name, his race and his religion don?t matter. His ancestry might be Italian, English, African, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, Russian, Hispanic or any of a hundred others. What does matter is that he considers himself in every way to be an American. He is proud of this country and thinks that if you aren?t, you are wholeheartedly encouraged to find one that suits you and move there.

The Angry Man is usually a man?s man. The kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, go hunting, play golf, maintain his own vehicles and build things. He coaches kid?s baseball, soccer and football and doesn?t ask for a penny. He?s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, design a factory or work the land. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant so that you can keep the lights on while never knowing everything it took to do that. The Angry Man is the backbone of this country.

He?s not racist, but is truly disappointed and annoyed, when people exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their ethnicity. He?s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they?re willing to work hard and play by the rules. He expects other people to do the same. Above all, he has integrity in everything he does.

The Angry Man votes, and he loathes the dysfunction now rampant in government. It?s the victim groups being pandered to and the ?poor me? attitude that they represent. The inability of politicians to give a straight answer to an honest question. The tax dollars that are given to people who simply don?t want to do anything for themselves. The fact that, because of very real consequences, he must stay within a budget but for some obscure reason the government he finances doesn?t.

Mostly, it?s the blatantly arrogant attitude displayed implying that we are too stupid to run our own lives and only people in government are smart enough to do that.

When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

But when government officials are repeatedly caught red-handed breaking the law and getting off scot-free, The Angry Man balls-up his fists and readies himself for the coming fight. He knows that this fight, will be a live or die situation, so he prepares fully. Make no mistake, this is a fight in which he is not willing to lose and he will never give up.

Obama calls him a Clinger. Hillary calls him Deplorable. Bill calls him Redneck. ISIS calls him an Infidel. Donald Trump calls him an American.


    THE ANGRY MAN

There are many things we can give thanks for when we suffer, but here are 12 that I try to remember:

1) That God is sovereign and in complete control of the intensity and the duration of your affliction.

I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me,
declaring the end from the beginning
and from ancient times things not yet done,
saying, ?My counsel shall stand,
and I will accomplish all my purpose? Is 46:9-10

2) That God?s love and mercies never cease

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. Lam 3:22-23

3) That Jesus will never leave nor forsake you.

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ?I will never leave you nor forsake you.? Heb 13:5

4) That God is with you in your affliction

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. Is 43:2

5) That God hears your every prayer

The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous
and his ears toward their cry. Ps 34:15

When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears
and delivers them out of all their troubles. Ps 34:17

6) That God is using this affliction to make you like Christ.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. Romans 8:28?29

7) That this affliction is momentary and light compared to the eternal reward it is producing

For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison? 2 Cor 4:17

8) That Jesus is your sympathetic High Priest who intercedes for you constantly

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Heb 4:15

Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. Heb 7:25

9) That God is near you in your pain

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted
and saves the crushed in spirit. Ps 34:18

10) That Jesus is your refuge, strength, and strong tower you can run to.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Ps 46:1, ESV

The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe. Pr 18:10

11) That God has saved you, washed away your sins, and adopted you as his own child.

Blessed are those whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Rom 4:7

12) That someday Jesus will wipe away every tear from your eyes and you will see his glorious face.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. Rev 21:4
