Recent Presidential History

Anyone who thinks the President of the United States calls all the shots has clearly never heard of Lincoln or Kennedy!
The Presidents of the United States answer to someone, or they get taken out . . . Somewhere behind the scenes, the real authority is in place.  I have no idea how far back it goes to the point we were sold out, but since then; we've continued to be sold down the tubes.   In order to live with having been sold, the wild idea has been perpetuated, to blame and change parties and argue amongst ourselves, without seeing the true situation.   Our political differences are not so different and will not change the inevitable.  I'm beginning at the point I became an American adult, although I know the foundation and building blocks of this direction were already in place before that.  No one man in the oval office, so far, deserves full credit or blame.  It's been incremental, regardless of party.

I've been shown a perspective of the base of our problem, which of course is, as always; the love of money.  Jimmy Carter made the mistake of not curbing inflation, under the apparent crazy notion that currency with no standard was only paper.  It didn't seem to matter to him.  I became 21 years of age in 1979 and that was the year Iran took American hostages and in that move, control of the US election in 1980.  It was through the 80's the Middle Class began to die, truly die.  It wasn't over night, but the high end of the Middle Class became upwardly mobile, and the rest began to sink. The demise of the Air Traffic Controllers Union was just the beginning of government control over Air transportation, and now we have very few airlines and a powerful TSA, but that's not all that collapsed, it was only the beginning.

Remember Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker?  What was once fraud is now religious business as usual?  Money! Follow the money trail to the division of America!

Although we had no embassy in Iran anymore, due to the hostage crisis that was negotiated by Jimmy Carter, but resolved the day Reagan was inaugurated; yet I digress, Iran ended up with an arms deal with the US in 1986, and we were in a recession in 1987, with the deficit more than tripled through this administration.  Do I think Ronald Reagan did all this to collapse the middle class or boost Iran?  Absolutely not, he was clearly, only a figure head.  Now, his VP, I personally believe is better connected to the true powers that be, but I don't know his actual prominence.

Which brings us to the next President, Bush 41, further diminishing the middle class, as it scrambled with the Savings & Loan collapse, and more dramatic increase of the national deficit.  It was through these two administrations, however; that the moral majority gained a voice, but no change.  A voice that claimed authority brought religion and money to an interesting union in our nation's churches, while the middle class continued to drown in a sea of debt.  The American dream was very much based upon the ideology that the land of opportunity meant everyone should have the opportunity to be in debt . . .  So we then obviously leaned to the left . . .

If anyone can truly see a difference in the policies of Bill Clinton and Bush 41, I'd like to know what they were.  Bush 41 introduced NAFTA, Bill Clinton brought it.  The Republican Party has always been more opposed to the welfare program, Bill Clinton put the limits in place.  Clinton and Bush became a charity fund raising team after both of them left office!  These two men have proved better than any, the parties are not so different.  Now, I'm not saying they possess the same personal moral values, but in all honesty, I think Clinton was just a side show, while the pieces continued to fall into place behind the scenes.  The banking "industry" enjoyed some wonderful deregulation while the nation raged about Bill and Monica.   Not only were most well paying jobs outsourced by the end of last century through no fault of Bush 43, sex was clearly no longer a taboo subject.  Credit not only goes to Clinton on that, but to talk radio pundits, as well!  Meanwhile, much banking got deregulated and the economy literally exploded on the idea there was excess . . . I knew very few who had a union job in the 70's, even 80's that still worked for the same company by Clinton's second term.

Sadly, the point I'm closing with is truly heart-wrenching.  We have become such a divided country through these years, there's no going back.  The same people that lauded Bush 43 for the Iraq invasion are disgusted with Obama for talking the same way about Syria.  The same people who felt so good about the USA Patriot Act, now want their privacy protected.  Not to be outdone, the people who could not wait to the end of the Bush Administration follow Obama as faithfully as the people they used to mock.  They don't seem to be aware that President Obama continued the Patriot Act and has a very invasive NSA in operation, and we can't forget the drones.  Yet his followers really believe things have changed, and things that haven't are the fault of the other party . . .

When a candidate has to raise funds in the millions to be elected to a job that doesn't pay a half million a year, that position is owned, already bought and paid for.   The selection is made in bank accounts, not voting booths.

Now, we the people, are more divided than we ever were, because Obama was the man of the recent hour, but certainly not the authoritative power his opposition considers him to be, nor is he the victim of a lousy Congress or the last administration.  He's just a place holder as things unfold.  We have the Occupy Wall Street Movement, racism cloaked in political correctness is really frightening, Law Enforcement have become The Enforcers.  At every hand there is a "them against us," meanwhile . . . What began as the Middle Class has become the barren wasteland of indebted blame, hatred, and envy.

But godliness with contentment is great gain . . . For the love of money is the root of all evil . . .  I Timothy 6

The Health Care Reform Bill and the ERA

I'm beginning to see some real similarities here, and I don't like what I'm seeing.  First and foremost, let us never forget the "Equal Rights Amendment" was never ratified, but it took less than forty years for the work force to be comprised of more women than men.  There was something much larger looming beneath the surface, though and we are now seeing the evidence and effect.

I've spoken on the subject before, citing Proverbs 31.  You don't need the ERA if you have G-O-D.  The Proverbs 31 woman had it going on!  Women have been working since the dawn of civilization.  Don't think for a minute, women weren't working when our society was agrarian.  I long to be that kind of woman, and I am in some areas.  My failings are not in work and project accomplishment, but  . . . suffice it to say, I seem to be taking the chapter in order . . .  Back to the similarity between this postponed, procrastinated health care and the ERA.

First, Health Care Reform has had a placebo effect.  Obama's followers feel better already!  What the talk and songs about the ERA actually did, was hand the child raising over to the government, well the ones that were born.  Through this much debated ERA era, although we didn't actually get the amendment, we did get "Head Start," skyrocketing divorce rates, birth control, and abortion, to name just a few "victories for women."   I believe women can actually serve a long side men in the military, rather than separate units like medical and clerical in the earlier days.  I haven't heard of the WAVES in years, because in 1972, all that changed.  Without the ERA women have been expected to work along side the men.  In each of the examples given, it seems women have actually lost their G-d given rights, while never really earning equality, and the government has raised a generation of kids, into the next generation, through the formative years, which brings me to this Health Care Reform Bill.

The millennials can now make all their own "adult" decisions at 18, in some states 17, go into thousands of dollars of debt for student loans with mom and/or dad's tax information, while remaining dependent children until the age of 26 for their health care.  Then, with this mandate, nobody is getting better care, they are just getting forced insurance, invasive questioning, tax penalties, and some reduced work hours.  The official health care is still another year and a half away, but so far, Obama's people feel better.  I can't help but wonder how they'll feel if and when it truly is implemented fully.  Meanwhile teen-agers can have access to all sorts of birth control, which will be another blog topic, but what I see here is health care will take government control beyond the formative years through to the adult years, which will have virtually every baby in America born into the agenda.

It truly doesn't matter if the entire Health Care Bill is ever fully enacted, "the followers" already feel better and we can all see with no ERA, "we've come a long way, baby!?

The Way I See It . . .

I have to ask the question.  Has America already gone down the slippery slope to become "Amerika?"

What is the difference between law enforcement demolishing small sustainable organic farms, injuring even killing elderly homeowners, destroying products and killing animals of small ag independent farmers in post 9/11 America; and breaking the windows of Jewish businesses in Germany in 1938 after the 1933 Reichstag fire?

I'm referring to Kristallnacht in Germany, 1938.  Jewish businesses were targeted as non-conforming to the Reich.  We seem to have that same thing inverted and redefined, yet eerily comparable here.

Raiding small organic hobby homesteads under the guise of looking for pot destroys someone's business and possible livelihood, not to mention the intimidation factor.  I, for one, would prefer laws that prevent abuse of authority by personnel who cannot tell a marijuana plant from a tomato plant.  I think what is taking place is so outrageously egregious, we cannot continue to look the other way.

The DNR of Michigan is throwing some pretty heavy weight around on the independent pig farmers.  I'm not advocating or promoting the ingestion of pork, but these families are in America and I would be remiss to not support their right to live freely without fear of DNR destroying their farms and livelihood.  DNR is supposed to take care of wildlife, not farm animals, but Big Ag in Michigan has found a point of control, besides money; to destroy independent pig farmers.

One of the first reports at the Goshen Gazette was about the Morningland Dairy raid.  The powers that be, destroyed hundreds of pounds of dairy products needlessly and destructively contaminated the operation.

This information is so alarming, I have actually had some personal reservation in writing this article, but the correlation is too strong, to remain silent.  If I don't speak up now, who will; if my homestead is targeted?  

Are badges and uniforms in America the dreaded brown shirts we learned of in history, all the while thinking; it could never happen in America?  Store front windows aren't being broken, farms are being destroyed.  Synagogues aren't being burned, but ordinances and regulations are being drafted to jail preachers, label Bible quotes as hate speech, and shut down generational farming operations.

The local government in regard to the tomato raid in Texas, now claims the SWAT team raid had to do with ordinance violations, which seems all the more hideous.  A SWAT team for city ordinance violation?

The urls are listed below, in case there is difficulty with the links.

So in answer to my question at the beginning of the article.  I've searched for the difference and the one thing I can find is this.  Kristallnaught was perpetrated by the SA extremists and civilians while ignored by authorities, whereas what's happening here in America, is actually sanctioned by our government.

Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand.  And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.  a Prophet of Holy Scripture

Where is the Decency?

I can't help but compare these two stories.  We have a 95 year old, WWII Veteran in an assisted living facility, literally killed by police in riot gear.  He served his country surviving the war, but it did take 7 cops to take him out . . . and the nursing home said he was only armed with a cane and a shoehorn.  Now the cops tell a more ominous story, but there is no evidence to support their version and the coroner ruled the death a homicide.  We'll see if any one is actually held accountable.

This gentleman was trying to refuse a surgery that would more than likely leave him on life support.  He wasn't allowed to make that choice and his right to die with dignity was stolen by law enforcement.  Years ago, I worked in long term care.  It would have never occurred to any of us to call the police over a resident, and I remember some clearly combative residents.  Those elderly patients could be out numbered and out powered pretty easily with no harm done.  The main concern of long term care used to be safety of the resident!  Apparently times have changed.

By the way, just for the sake of curiosity, why can't a 95 year old person make their own health choice, especially if they are coherent enough to understand the possible risk?  According to the article in the link below this was confirmed by the doctor in the facility.  So this aged hero couldn't die of "natural causes" before being tasered and shot with bean bag rounds which ultimately caused his death a few hours later, according to the autopsy.  This was quite a write up in the UK.

Meanwhile in Guantanamo Bay, five prisoners have been released on their promise to not carry out any terrorist activity, in an effort to extend the olive branch to the Taliban??????????????
According to the Washington Times, another news source has reported that the Taliban has been removed from the "enemies list."  VP Joe Biden says the Taliban is not the enemy of the US.
Well, then Mr. Biden, just who is the big threat that we citizens must remain under constant surveillance?

Five prisoners of Gitmo get released on the the "honor's system," but a war hero who served his country valiantly and received an honorable discharge died as he did!

Judge Not . . .

I awoke early this morning to the reality that America is a very judgmental country, even as we continue to sink into the dismal abyss of our own degradation and greed.

I went back to check the dates on these stories, because the one about the young girl had surfaced again.  So, not only are these atrocities in other nations, being reported, the reports are being repeated.  Meanwhile, here in America, some headlines have become history, as permanently as digital history allows, while the violence of the rule of law in our nation, continues to escalate.

When mainstream media reports these headlines in America about other countries:

This account is a permanent fixture of Wikipedia, for all the world to see, and there are many more like it in alternative headlines and international news:

The legal violence in America may not be any less ominous than the countries we judge, it may actually even be more.  We know the open sexuality is much more rampant.  Individuality is no longer politically correct, and between Big Pharma and Corporate Farming, Americans are being poisoned and malnourished.  These are the realities of which we are aware, yet continue to "judge" other nations.
Meanwhile, a small percentage of Americans are wondering how much more is really going on behind the grabbing headlines.

There will be a day of reckoning for judging the evil of other nations, while excusing and covering our own.

 . . . behold, ye have sinned against YHWH: and be sure your sin will find you out.

RIP Bill of Rights . . .

As an internet journalist and blogger, I've been warning of the the demise of the Bill of Rights for some time, now.  It's not like TPTB [the powers that be] are just suddenly going to Tear Up the document.  No, it's been much more subtle than that.

We had the majority of people literally begging to give up freedom for the promise of safety after 9/11!  I remember the people snarling about privacy protection now, were the same ones touting, "Nothing to worry about if you've got nothing to hide!" when I was shouting NO to the USA Patriot Act and the declaration of two misplaced, misled wars.  So, I took to the blogosphere.  Now the "sides" have changed, but the issue and the argument remain.

I've done newsletters for years, but finally realized I could do that on the net, also.  As I read these bills, I'm not thinking we internet journalists will be "grandfathered in" if we don't get in lockstep with the political agenda of the corporate mainstream media.  On the other hand, I'm noticing the alternative news is developing a sort of "new mainstream trend" as well.

Those of us who are posting some discerning questions and alternative information, are being labeled.  It is often very tempting to jump on some bandwagon, but I can't.  Freedom of the press, free speech, and no laws about religion cannot be contained or even necessarily designated in detail without losing the concept of "free."  There are a number of things I don't agree with, and would rather not have forced upon me, but by that same token, I like the freedom to ignore those things or disagree with them.

Too many laws against things, only serve to actually favor other things.  I'm becoming increasingly aware that most of our political correctness involves anti-Bibleness.  I don't deserve a derogatory label for disagreeing with some political correct agenda.  I should be able to freely disagree, and I should be able to freely write about that.  I should be able to freely know that I have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and that someone is not trying to undermine my liberty.

I realize for many people captivity means safety, and popularity means leadership, and trendy means right, but that isn't the case for all of us, and I'd like as much protection and as many rights as those who disagree with me, but have more power and more money.  If laws can be "bought and paid for" then our freedom has already been sold.  Truth doesn't have to be afraid of "the other side of the story . . ."

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  words of Messiah
