DC Creates an Emesis Epidemic!

Is the constitutionality of the 1st 2nd and 4th amendment issues that face us today merely decided by the subjective opinion of those in power? Are the people that are in our circle, that we might offend, the litmus test for right and wrong? I believe the founding principles need to be protected beyond the Amendments or laws which they produced…but that would require those who make our laws, those who execute our laws and those who define the intent of our laws to have principles to begin with or be GOD FEARING PEOPLE, as our founding fathers were who created our Constitution!

Which they are not!

I’m getting dehydrated!!!!

And that’s this Christian American’s Opinion…

 


GUILTY!!!!!

Allathree-1

Last night we were enjoying a retro night. Some new and some old customers were eating sliders and watching the Midnight Special music videos from the 70’s. All of a sudden one of the customers screamed “they have a verdict in the Zimmerman case”!!! Convicted of first degree murder!!! We all went to our smart phones to google the results. We could not believe what she was saying! The place erupted! All but one of the customers that had been following the case were aghast. The one that was exalting his supposed conviction mirrored the sentiments of every low information drive by media spin we’ve heard for the past year and a half.

But who truly are the guilty in this case? Well not George Zimmerman for sure as the verdict finally came out innocent of ALL charges. I say the GUILTY are a perverted media that’s biased by the race hatred panderers and those who support them. Below is a great article from Clarence McKee, a columnist from NEWSMAX.  http://www.newsmax.com/Insiders/ClarenceVMcKee/id-150

Racial Hypocrisy Highlighted in Zimmerman Case

Saturday, 13 Jul 2013 07:14 PM By Clarence McKee

I get so tired of racial hypocrisy.

The George Zimmerman trial is a reminder of one sad fact — in America a black life has more value when taken by a white than by another black.

Trayvon Martin was black. Zimmerman is not. In census jargon, he was a “white” Hispanic.

Martin’s problem that fateful night in February 2012 was that he was “WWB” — walking while black, and wearing a hoodie to boot. The hidden fear of many parents of young black males is that either while WWB or “DWB” — driving while black, they will be targeted by police or others.

Even after his parents, reported him missing, his body still remained in the morgue for three days as a “John Doe”— just another dead black teenager.

Thankfully, Martin’s parents were persistent in seeking justice and action by local authorities. They asked for others to get involved and seek justice for their son — they never made it about race.

Others did.

What really spurred the national uproar when local officials first refused to charge Zimmerman with any crime was the fact that Martin was the black victim and Zimmerman, even if Hispanic was the “white” shooter.

Regardless of the jury ‘s verdict, before the trial even started and any evidence was introduced, Zimmerman was tried and convicted in a sea of racial politics by much of the black civil rights and political establishments and the mainstream media.

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., who represents Martin’s hometown of Miami Gardens, said that “Trayvon was hunted down like a rabid dog; he was shot in the street; he was racially profiled.”

She was not alone:

There were marches and protests by national civil rights leaders, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and black politicians shouting “justice for Trayvon”;

The Miami Heat team had a photo with them wearing “hoodies.”

The president of the United States said “Trayvon could be my son.”

The mounting political pressure resulted in Zimmerman eventually being charged with second degree murder.

Would any of this have happened if Zimmerman were black? Would anyone but their families have cared?

It seems that if you are in an uproar over a white killing a black; why not show the same outrage when countless numbers of blacks, including innocent little children, are killed by other blacks on a daily basis?

For example, over the Fourth of July holiday, more than 60 people were wounded and nearly a dozen were killed in Chicago alone.

The real tragedy is that if Trayvon had been shot by another black male in his South Florida hometown of Miami Gardens, it may have gone unnoticed by the same celebrities, civil rights leaders and entertainers who rallied around him in the Sanford tragedy.

In the past five years, Miami Gardens has ranked among the top Miami-Dade cities with the highest murder rates per 100,000 residents. It’s young and dynamic Mayor Oliver Gilbert, a lifelong resident, has said:

“We won’t allow an entire community of people to be identified by the horrible actions of a small minority of people . . .  Most of the people in Miami Gardens are great decent people.”

With Gilbert’s leadership, members of the clergy have called for an end to the violence; police have hosted meetings with local crime watch groups and ministers and city leaders have held vigils in memory of victims.

The victims include the “Trayvons” that those rushing to protest the Sanford killing — including Wilson — never heard of or apparently cared about.

A few of them were listed in The Miami Herald:

An eight-month pregnant mother who succumbed to her injuries after being shot on her boyfriend’s porch. The unborn baby did not survive.

A high school football player gunned down while he sat in a car in front of his friend’s house.

A local car wash owner killed while trying to stop a robbery.

A corrections officer shot dead in front of his home.

So why not the same national protests and calls for action by these black leaders, politicians, Obama, and concern in the mainstream media for the national plague of black on black youth crime in Chicago and other cities such as Miami Gardens?

Why no mass protests or marches from celebrities, athletes, and politicians rallying around and supporting Mayor Gilbert and his police force to put an end to such violence?

Why no calls to the president and the attorney general’s Community Relations Service to invest hundreds of millions of dollars for mayors and local law enforcement in Miami Gardens and other cities to launch an all-out war on such urban violence as the administration is doing to educate and sign up people on Obamacare?

Any chance?

Don’t hold your breath.

Most of these black on black killings occur in poorer inner city neighborhoods.

A new study by Georgetown University’s Center for Applied Research shows that Obama has actually mentioned the poor less frequently (26 percent) than any of his modern predecessors in the Oval Office.

It is fine to demand justice for Trayvon in Sanford and let a jury decide on Zimmerman’s guilt or innocence.

But, it is hypocrisy to make such demands when a white kills a black; yet remain silent when black youths are killed by other black youths.


I Was A Stranger And You Took Me In

statue_of_liberty_with_extract_of_poem_by_emma_lazarus_fixed

“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset hates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lighting, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips.

“Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

With all this immigration reform chatter I’m very suspicious of a new website and video that is being sent around by many evangelical spokes persons including some one I’ve always admired Max Lucado. The website and video are at http://www.salemoffers.com/campaign/i-was-a-stranger/rc/swnnewsletters. It’s title is “I was a stranger”. This message wants to seem benign as it asks for Evangelicals to take 40 days to pray for God’s will regarding “immigration”. The directive is for 4 separate “Challenges” to yourself, your campus, your church and legislators. They have a 17 page toolkit to walk these 4 groups through the marketing process (my word). The reason I’m suspect is because it is only on page 17 of the toolkit that you find this statement of purpose,

As evangelical Christian leaders, we call for a bipartisan solution on immigration that:

  •  Respects the God-given dignity of every person 
  •  Protects the unity of the immediate family 
  •  Respects the rule of law 
  •  Guarantees secure national borders 
  •  Ensures fairness to taxpayers 
  •  Establishes a path toward legal status and/or citizenship for those who qualify and who wish to become permanent residents 

We urge our nation’s leaders to work together with the American people to pass immigration reform that embodies these key principles and that will make our nation proud.

I never in all my life, and as the grandson of Italian immigrants, thought for one moment that America is not an immigration friendly country. It is only because of the illegal lawless immigration problem we have been experiencing for the past 40 years created by the political class for a number of illicit reasons, that immigration has become a polarizing issue. The lies being told by the Democrats regarding the Conservatives who have been fighting to protect our borders has misinformed the american people and seems to have influenced the more liberal arm of the Cristian community. The issue IS NOT ABOUT IMMIGRATION! The issue is about LEGAL immigration and the lawlessness of the Federal Government in their pursuit of political power over the states and every other branch of government.

Beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing and the subtle little foxes. Just sayin.

And that’s A Christian American Opinion.


Pick Which Obama Administration Scandal is Racist?

1. Mexican gun running?

2. The State Dept. lying about Benghazi?” 

3. The IRS targeting conservatives?” 

4. The DOJ spying on the press?” 

5. Sibelius shaking down health insurance executives?” 

6. The NSA monitoring our phone calls, e-mails and everything else?” 

7. The State Dept. (new today) interfering with an IG investigation on dept. sexual misconduct?” 

8. HHS employees (also new today) being given insider information on Medicare Advantage?” 

9. Clinton, the IRS, Clapper & Holder all lying to Congress?” 

Or 65 million low-info voters sticking us again with the most corrupt administration in American history?”


Cower Not From Floaters

Are you afraid of the dark? Most of us as children were. But then we grew up and realized that there is nothing to be afraid of. So how is this proven to us as children?  Usually we, or someone else, turns on a light! And then what do we see? We see there was nothing there to be afraid of. Too many good people live in darkness and cower from its despotism. Like we’ve seen in the media over the past week. But  darkness can have no power over light, even the most faint. In today’s dark politically correct society the darkness is so prevalent that most tremble in fear of going against it or even surrender to it, and then go as far as defending it.

Darkness can be very irritating. For example, this week I noticed something in my eye that was a dark speck. When I tried to focus  I couldn’t help but see this little dark spec. I went to the eye doctor and he says it’s a floater. A myodesopsia or a shadow that’s cast on the retina. Very irritating but permanent.  He said it becomes more obvious in the light, the brighter the light the more obvious the dark spec in my eye will be.

Now this is a very good physical illustration of a spiritual truth in America these days. When the light is broadcast through American Christians’ outspoken opinions, the darkness is exposed. A case in point is the recent Chick-Fil-A furor. All the Christian CEO of this company did was make a public statement that he believed in traditional marriage. This action, (like a brightly lit room would cause my floater to be more apparent), exposed the darkness in our society as it was manifested over the top in the media that supports it.

Ephesians 5: 8-14 is a good illustration of this fact.

 God’s light produces every kind of goodness, right living, and truth. 10 Try to learn what pleases the Lord. 11 Have no part in the things that people in darkness do, which produce nothing good. Instead, tell everyone how wrong those things are. 12 Actually, it is shameful to even talk about the things those people do in secret. 13 But the light makes clear how wrong those things are. 14 Yes, everything is made clear by the light.

Verse 14 continues with  a statement that I’ve taken some liberty with:

“Wake up America you who are sleeping! Rise from spiritual darkness, and Christ will shine on you.”

In the past, before I became a Christian American, I was full of darkness, but now I am full of light in the Lord Jesus Christ. So, in verse eleven above, A Christian American’s Opinion will have no part in the things that people in darkness do, which produce nothing good. Instead, we tell everyone how wrong those things are. (Ephesians 5:11 paraphrased)

So simply  turn on the light and expose the darkness for what they are and Jesus Christ will shine on you.

This is our hope for America. Cower not from floaters.

A Christian American’s Redress

So the question comes up all the time, “how can I be a Christian and resist the government’s authority?” Doesn’t Paul the apostle make it very clear that we are to submit to governing authorities? Romans 13:1-7. I will try never to take the word of God out of context. Paul was speaking very clearly about government authority in general and their purpose to restrain evil. I believe Paul (and of course the Holy Spirit) is directly referring to the Executive Branches of Government i.e.”he does not bear the sword in vain”. In the United States of America we have a constitution that describes the authority of the government and responsibility of its citizens.  Our government’s constitution preamble states:  We the People of the United States in order to form   a more perfect union…

Our Declaration of Independence states:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government.

Americans have a history of “self governance.”  Abraham Lincoln acknowledged this in the Gettysburg Address. “…that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”.

We are a government “of the people”, “by the people” and “for the people” as well as a nation under God. So as citizens of this great country we have a Biblical responsibility to follow its laws that we, through our republican form of government created but also have a responsibility and a right to alter or abolish it as an unalienable right if it moves beyond its constitutional limits.

So how can I do this and remain within my scriptural boundaries? Well if we read the “Bill of Rights” we can read in 1st 9th and 10th amendments to the United States Constitution which allow us the freedom and responsibility of  demanding our rights from our government through redress. If our rights are being violated we have a Christian obligation to resist. Not only for our sakes but for the sake of our children and other Americans whose rights afforded them by our Constitution and laws are being violated.

So when a fellow Christian brother or sister rebukes your outspoken position using Romans saying it is God’s will to submit to our government, let them know you are, and then  that you expect them to get off their couch and stand up for our country as well…In the name of  our founding fathers, the constitution and your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
