Patriots Declare: We Shall Not Let Vote Fraud Stand!

These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

What Do Constitutional Conservatives Do Now?

Where do we constitutional Judeo/Christian conservatives go from here? Attitude and Resistance...

Ted Cruz's Ties to the CIA, Wall Street and Banks is Scary


It just gets more and more interesting.  If you hate liberty and believe the NSA has a right to spy on you, you'll love Ted Cruz.

In addition to Heidi and Ted's many big bank, big government, CIA ties, we now find that a shadowy SuperPAC, with millions from unidentified donors is run by the former attorney for Mitch McConnell and attack ALL Cruz competitors.  Another operative attached is Keats Norfleet, who operated the career of Super RINO Dwayne Bohac in Texas.

One of the big donors behind this? German born Peter Thiel (founder of Paypal) with DEEP CIA/FBI/DARPA ties.  Thiel was one of the first investors of Facebook and as biggest shareholder in Palantir, is deeply enmeshed with government at all levels including the Obama White House.  Palantir recruits the likes of former counsel to Joe Biden.  Anonymous uncovered efforts by Thiel's company to "spread disinformation" about journalist Greg Greenwald's work.  Clearly they are more than software company.

We already learned that former DHS head Michael Chertoff hired a former Goldman Sachs executive to combine all the information flows from ALL intelligence communities (NSA/FBI/CIA/DHS/NSA), and that former Goldman Sachs exec is now Chertoff's partner, and CHIEF of Ted Cruz's campaign.

Ron Paul came out yesterday created a furor by saying of Cruz, "he’s owned by Goldman Sachs."  The CrowdPAC chart to the right shows that not only is he the largest recipient of Wall Street donations, he has MORE than Hillary.

Suddenly those undisclosed loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank take on a new light.  Two big reasons why this is damning:

  1. The law is clear.  So either Cruz can't manage accurate reporting (something he has derided political opponents and the White House about), or he was lying.
  2. He was already caught lying about this.  Cruz had an eloquent story he originally told:
 “Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.
The truth is "liquidate" to Ted was to get a sweetheart loan from his wife's employer and the CAMPAIGN paid it back.   The Cruz's were never out a penny.  And it was a Hillary-like "we were broke" moment.

With Ted backing Obama on eliminating US sovereignty with his vote on TPP, and Heidi trying to hide her ties to former World Bank President, the Agenda 21 EU-like North American Union effort, and her role as director for the Western Hemisphere on the National Security Council under Condoleezza Rice, it's not a reach to see a systematic suppression of Heidi and Ted's Big Government and Wall Street backgrounds that existed for Ted up until 10 years ago and hasn't stopped with Heidi. 

(As to Cruz's deflection attempt to claim this is an attack on his wife, it is CRUZ who says he doesn't make a major decision without her and she is his "closest adviser.",  Heidi gloats she is "one half of a great team."  Moreover, former Goldman turned DHS/CIA turned Chertoff Group turned Cruz Campaign Chief Chad Sweet (who recruited Heidi at Goldman) says, "She works the phones the way she worked them when she was at Goldman."  You can't have it both ways.)

Regardless, Cruz is at least a lying opportunist, and more likely, something much, much worse.

Expect government infringement on ALL of your communications not only to continue under a Cruz administration - expect them to expand.

Why Are Cruz Christians Allowing Themselves to be Deceived?


**********

I detest the Cruz, Rubio, Trump and Jeb supporters who can't be honest about their own candidate's failings.  Almost all of these people seem to be Christian, but they some how think it's fine to act like liberals and not acknowledge even the BASIC flaws of their candidate, defending lies and worse.  Why is that?

Worse, they don't do even basic research to find out who they are really defending.  If their candidate says it they ignorantly just assume it must be true then find themselves terribly embarrassed (and discredited) over defending actions that are not only unethical but calculated.  And as I explain below, this will keep happening to Ted Cruz.  It is intentional.

Now that the Caucus fraud has been irrefutably proven that the Cruz campaign intentionally misrepresented Carson's situation to steal votes even after Carson sent a corrected release (here and here) - not one of the Judeo/Christian Cruz supporters has had the integrity to admit they were wrong.  In their eyes it's just "politics" and hypocritically won't admit they would be hammering this 24/7 if it happened to their candidate.  In just one precinct where Cruz's operatives were pushing the lie, Ben Carson's WIFE walked in as Cruz operatives were spreading the lies, and Carson ended up in SECOND place- much more in line with the pre-caucus polling.  These people are like Obots who still claim Barry has saved the economy and is a Christian.  Stick your head in the sand.  Who cares if the Soros-affiliated PR head of the Cruz campaign who was caught red handed trying to blame Trump as well.  No wonder our children and nation have no moral compass.
What gets me, is a lot of these people endorsed the RINO-Rubio loving Santorum in the last election, (who misled a huge number of Christians because they didn't do even BASIC research into fact checking his representations) - they are now doing the same with Cruz.  His campaign is run by a former  Goldman Sachs executive who profited from the push of TSA scanning machines, his wife STILL is employed by Goldman Sachs on leave, and his campaign originally tried to HIDE her ties to the Council of Foreign Relations and her ex-World Bank President boss on Wikipedia, much less his loans from them.   Nothing to see here, move along....unless it's Chelsea.  

A normally intelligent TEA Party activist here in Texas wrote a puff piece on Ted Cruz "What We Know About Ted Cruz in Texas" and refused to address that he actively pushed and defended Bush's NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND.  She did the same with Santorum.  Apparently, she doesn't have an ability to admit ANY wrongdoing - just like our current Muslim President.  These people seem oblivious that Heidi Cruz helped write and promote the EU-like Agenda 21 North American Union plan.  Yet nary a peep from my supposed conservative friends about Ted's vote with Barak Barry to hand over American sovereignty with his support of TPP

You'd think that after Cruz told gay donors at a NY apartment (where a gay bartender died of drug overdose only six months earlier).that he would have "no problem" if one of his daughter was gay at the SAME TIME he was in churches condemning the gay lifestyle, they'd start to look a bit more closely at him.

Of course not.  And the fact that Ted changed his big government rhetoric just 10 years ago as he began to orchestrate his calculated political quest?  No biggie.  Who cares if Ted Cruz never had any intention of actually serving the people of Texas as Senator.  Only three (3) months after taking his Senate seat, he began running for President as National Review reporter Robert Costa explains in this radio interview. Who cares if he has the second worst attendance record in the Senate and can't be bothered to show up even 50% of the time for his position on the Armed Services Committee.  Rubio is even worse.  (That's right, Hillary had a better attendance record than Marco Rubio.)

Besides Cruz/Rubio who were the most recent first term Senators who had this bad of a voting record who began running for POTUS?  Barack Hussein Obama.  And Hillary Clinton.

There is no perfect politician.  Cruz still has done some great conservative things.  But the inability for CHRISTIANS to accept meditated deception and lying is disgusting.  Can't you still support "your guy" but at least be honest about what they do or did?
All candidates try to put a spin on their accomplishments. But Cruz's abilities are premeditated and Clintonian.  As Sarah Palin expressed, one of her reasons for not endorsing the man she put into the Senate, was that he lied on his immigration record.  He was ok.  But he continually lies about what his real positions were and revises history to score cheap political points, rather than simply be truthful about what he said and did at the time.  Politico documents just THREE of these instances here in their article entitled, "Ted Cruz may be the most gifted liar to run for President."  Hate Trump and Rubio, but they at least admit they held contrary opinions on many things before they ran for President and explain why.

It's not just immigration.  It's almost everything else which is why even his conservative Senate fellows dislike him.  Chuck Grassley called Cruz's Criminal Justice Reform where he wanted to do away with minimum mandatory sentences as "lenient," and now pretends it never happened.  And worse, Ted ended up supporting NOTHING of value in the end.  As a Texan, can I get my money back?

Ron Paul came out yesterday created a furor by saying of Cruz, "he’s owned by Goldman Sachs."  The CrowdPAC chart to the right shows that not only is he the largest recipient of Wall Street donations, he has MORE than Hillary. Suddenly those undisclosed loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank take on a new light.  Two big reasons why this is damning:

  1. The law is clear.  So either Cruz can't manage accurate reporting (something he has derided political opponents and the White House about), or he was lying.
  2. He was already caught lying about this.  Cruz had an eloquent story he originally told:
 “Sweetheart, I’d like us to liquidate our entire net worth, liquid net worth, and put it into the campaign,” he says he told his wife, Heidi, who readily agreed.
The truth is "liquidate" to Ted was to get a sweetheart loan from his wife's employer and the CAMPAIGN paid it back.   The Cruz's were never out a penny.  And it was a Hillary-like "we were broke" moment.


THIS WON'T END BECAUSE OF WHO CRUZ HIRED
Here is a real sign of character.  When he was running for Senate, the Dewhurst campaign sent out a mailer smearing and lying that Cruz represented a Chinese company stealing American blueprints.  He even claimed he was incensed since it went to his father.  What did Cruz do?  He hired the man who created the mailer TO BE HIS presidential campaign architect.  A man who had no national political success to speak of at that time, but a reputation to be "the worst" of dirty politics, including driving some opponents to suicide.  What a perfect fit for a conservative Christian that will have to shed the "mean hypocritical Christian" label if he runs in a general election!  (I can't seem to find my sarcasm font - but you get the idea)
THE ENTIRE GOAL of the CRUZ CAMPAIGN ARCHITECT IS TO WIN DISHONESTLY, even if it means falsely accusing a fellow Christian.  And Ted Cruz embraces it.

Christians are told to judge a tree by it's fruit.  But instead of actually LOOKING at the fruit, they are buying everything the snake in the garden is telling them it is.

Hey Politijim, Rubio, Trump, (and everyone else) have worse sins!  Why single out Cruz??

Because, it's the HYPOCRISY stupid!  Who did Jesus curse?  Those who CLAIMED they were perfect and were keeping the Law.  Did you ever notice that God references 4 women in Jesus's lineage that ALL don't belong there by Old Testament Law?  Ruth was a Moabite and shouldn't have been allowed in a temple much less the bloodline of God.  Tamar seduced and slept with her Father in Law.  Rahab was a prostitute.  Bathsheba an exhibitionist who bathed nude so King David could see her.

You hate Trump because he had more than one wife?  Then you had better hate King David and Ronald Reagan.  Dislike Rubio because he was likely gay?  Then Cruz can't be any better declaring that he's fine if his daughter is.

If you are a Christian, you are saved by GRACE and nothing else.  There isn't a single Bible character God used who was the Billy Graham or Mother Theresa of their day.  But he DOES look at the heart.  Reagan hated abortion and even expanded it in California.  But at least he could explain why he changed and didn't try and excuse his past decisions.  He owned up to them.  The only thing I've heard Cruz say he made a mistake was being arrogant on the Bush campaign.  Sure he said he could do better on tithing, but then he LIED to the Christian reporter saying it only happened when he was "newly married man."  The truth is that long after he was "newly married" his entire reported GIVING (much less his 10% tithing) was only 0.86%.  (Mitt Romney, who most evangelicals despised gave between 20% to 30% in any given year.)

Do you want a candidate who is transparent with who he is, or one that is continually crafting a false image to deceive people?

And it's worse.  Much, much worse.  Ted has been working with Mitch McConnell, including funding the NRSC - who he castigated and castigates as RINO's - from his own PAC since he got in office!
You’ll note Senator Ted Cruz never once campaigned for a conservative challengers to incumbents in the 2014 mid-term campaign races – nor did he ever discuss the absence of a federal budget now the republicans were in control of both the House and the Senate.
While publicly railing against what he called the DC Cartel, a group he was bound to assist from his prior pledge to them, he worked to deliver their goals nonetheless. 
And NOW we find that a shadowy SuperPAC, with millions from unidentified donors is run by the former attorney for Mitch McConnell and attack ALL Cruz competitors.  One of the big donors behind this? German born Peter Thiel founder of Paypal with DEEP CIA/FBI/DARPA ties.  Thiel was one of the first investors of Facebook and as biggest shareholder in Palantir, is deeply enmeshed with government at all levels including the Obama White House.  Anonymous uncovered efforts by Thiel's company to "spread disinformation" about journalist Greg Greenwald's work.

Up until two years ago, Cruz would wax poetic on the legal justification for everything from an anti-abortion Constitutional amendment to ...whatever.  It was his calling card as an originalist, Constitutional lawyer who had argued cases before the Supreme Court.  Just look how articulate he is in discussing the ObamaCare, Gay Marriage and Judicial retention rulings and Constitutional Amendments.  

But just like in the interview above he said "I'm not interested in trashing other Republicans," and now castigates his opponents daily - he also reverses course when it comes to his true eligibility.  In October of 2013 he was asked if he can run for President since he was born in Canada and at that time had STILL not renounced his Canadian citizenship.  His answer?  "I won't get into the legal arguments."

Now WHY would someone with such experience, legal brilliance and superb communication skills NOT take a chance to address it?
I submit it's because he ALREADY KNOWS the truth.  


He knows the John Jay and George Washington changed the first draft of the Constitution to strengthen the qualifications for President from someone merely born in the US to anyone, to someone who has to be born in the US to TWO CITIZEN PARENTS.  He knows the Immigration Act of 1790, which his campaign and operatives tout to allow foreign born citizens to be considered "natural born citizens" was not just amended BUT REPEALED, and replaced with the Act of 1795 that makes it clear foreign born citizens are NOT "natural born citizens."  We even have the ORIGINAL House of Representative notes that explains why they thought foreign born candidates like Cruz, or US soil born candidates without two US citizen parents like Rubio and Valarie Jarrett - were unconstitutional.  He knows that there have been a myriad of SCOTUS cases that EXPLICITLY address the issue.  And he knows most of America, even most of his Christian followers, will buy his lighthearted dismissal the same way Obama followers did.

You feel there is no other alternative but Cruz?  Great.  Support him.  But please spare the rest of us your sanctimonious lies that he doesn't have some very, very serious issues.

About that Lie that SCOTUS Never Defined "Natural Born Citizen"



Apparently many conservatives are now global warming liberals who believe there should be NO honest debate about anything THEY disagree with it.  Including the Constitution.  Despite Ted Cruz formerly endorsing NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND and George W. Bush's excessive spending when he worked for him, they totally believe everything he or Mark Levin say.   Since he is a self proclaimed "constitutional expert" they feel they have no responsibility to actually LOOK any further, despite it swinging a door wide open for Iranian Born Valarie Jarrett to become President.

The biggest lie is that there is no Supreme Court ruling, or definition of "natural born citizen."  despite actually being settled in numerous SCOTUS cases and other writings of the Founders.  

Here is your cheat sheet to stopping a potential future foreign takeover of the most powerful office in the world.

The first draft of the Constitution did not designate "natural born" citizen (NBC) but was changed following a letter from inaugural Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay to Geo Washington arguing that foreign powers could easily find ways to take over the Presidency if they weren't NBC.  

John Jay wrote:
Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Command in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.
See a transcription of Jay’s letter to Washington at this link.

Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of U.S. Constitution as adopted 17 September 1787 (emphasis mine):
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
NOTICE there is an exemption for mere “citizens” alive at the time of the adoption of the Constitution – but a “natural born” citizen is something else.   If it only meant naturalized citizen, then WHY WAS IT CHANGED?

Historian and Founder David Ramsey explicitly addressed this in his writings in 1789:

In his 1789 article, Ramsay first explained who the “original citizens” were and then defined the “natural born citizens” as the children born in the country to citizen parents. He said concerning the children born after the declaration of independence, “[c]itizenship is the inheritance of the children of those who have taken part in the late revolution; butt his is confined exclusively to the children of those who were themselves citizens….” Id.at 6. He added that “citizenship by inheritance belongs to none but the children of those Americans, who, having survived the declaration of independence, acquired that adventitious character in their own right, and transmitted it to their offspring….” Id. at 7.He continued that citizenship “as a natural right, belongs to none but those who have been born of citizens since the 4th of July, 1776….” Id. at 6.



Even GLOBALIST LIBERALS, wrote in the Kent-Chicago Law Review in 2005 argued that the Constitution needed to be AMENDED to do away with the fact foreign born children aren’t “natural born citizens.
the natural born citizen provision is controversial because it prevents over 12.8 million Americans from being eligible for the presidency.

The immigration of Act of 1790 Mark Levin cites was REPEALED, because it erroneously legitimized foreign born kids to US parents (plural) as NBC. (Mark Levin the supposed "expert" claimed it was still in effect by the way.) It specifically corrected this in the Act of 1795 and we have the House Committee notes explicitly explaining that it was because of this very issue.

The Supreme Court DID explicitly address the issue of NBC in Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 167 (1875) (“The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were
natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.”);

A second SCOTUS case (U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 665 (1898)), citied Minor and quoting without criticism its common law definition of a natural born citizen. This means in a SECOND case they didn't argue against the earlier finding.
There are actually many many other acts, laws, and documentations clearly show Rubio/Cruz/Jindal ineligible.  
  • Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)
  • Shanks v DuPont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)
  • Dred Scott v Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)
  • Minor v Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1875)
  • United States v Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
  • Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939)

Now to REALLY blow your mind.  There have been numerous attempts since 1975 to change this by Congressional LAW.  Since 2003, there have been 8 attempts alone.  IF EVERYONE ALREADY “KNEW” NBC was merely naturalized citizens, why have there been people trying to change it for the past 40 years?  (Attempts to Redefine or Amend Article II “Natural Born Citizen” Clause of the United States Constitution)
Ironically we have testimony of a famous foreign-born leader whose mother was American, and his father foreign. He was granted honorary citizenship and was asked by reporters if he would run for President of the United States. He said, “I am, as you know, half American by blood, and the story of my association with that mighty and benevolent nation goes back nearly ninety years to the day of my father's marriage. There are various little difficulties in the way. However, I have been treated so splendidly in the United States that I should be disposed, if you can amend the Constitution, seriously to consider the matter."

You know him as, Winston Churchill.

One last note. WHY is there an exemption for foreign born citizens in Article II "alive at the ratification" of the Constitution if they too would automatically be natural born citizens? The Founders were some of the most highly educated men in the WORLD as well as our country. They didn't use words casually. So merely consider that this WAS important to them and for a reason.

Otherwise, Iranian Born, Chief of Staff and Communist Valarie Jarrett – is also eligible since BOTH of her parents were Americans.

Ted Cruz Just Undermined America. And the Constitution.


*****UPDATE*****
There is also now serious legal questions as to whether Cruz's mother ever filed a US Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CBRA) to lay claim to Ted's US citizenship right.  Canada did not allow dual citizenship until 1977 (seven years after Cruz was born in Canada) and without such a document, Cruz would ONLY have been born a Canadian citizen.  If so, since he didn't renounce his Canadian citizenship until 2 years ago, he would actually be ineligible to be US Senator also.
*****************************************************************************

Ted Cruz has now demonstrated that no matter HOW conservative and honorable a candidate starts out to be, they will eventually be corrupted by power.

I used to remember Texas Senate-hopeful Ted telling tales of how much he loved America.  How he wanted America to be unified.  How much he loved Reagan.   With his lack of charisma and Harvard aloofness, it humanized him a bit.  It also seemed sincere.

As an transplanted Southerner, there is a wicked temptation to want to trash everything and everybody in New York or California.   Which is strange because most of those Southerners CLAIM to be Christian and are exhorted to embrace not only reason, but also humility, compassion and love.  You'd never catch Ronald Regan trashing Raleigh or Richmond.   Or Trump trashing Texas.

I have to admit - I saw it coming about 3 years ago when, on MEET THE PRESS (a sure telegraph of how Democrats are going to attack him) he claimed that "he won't get into legal arguments" when asked about his citizenship and Presidential eligibility.  I guess that whole expertise in constitutional law is only useful when you need material for a filibuster.  God forbid you should use your education and expertise to educate the public.  I wrote about it at the time (2013) pleading for him to be more like George Washington than a Washington politician.  Apparently Ted doesn't read Politijim.  Or isn't - in reality - a constitutional conservative.

I was told that in private fund raisers - here in Texas - his naturalized citizen father was telling supporters that their lawyers told them "there is nothing to" this whole birther issue.  Since then, it's been revealed Ted also lied about loans from Goldman Sachs (where his wife worked), all the while attacking them as crony capitalists.  The bright side is at least it isn't a forged birth certificate I guess.

Apparently the ideological co-opting that Trent Lott crowed about is inevitable.  Even for born again, God-fearing, constitutionally grounded Senators from Texas.

Additionally, in the past week Cruz has adopted Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's political tactics.  During the FOX BUSINESS debate he was asked about his eligibility to be President.  He sarcastically responded, "I’m glad we’re focusing on the important topics of the evening."

Yes, Ted.  Upholding the Constitution is important.  Even if it interferes with your personal ambition.

In that one response, Ted Cruz weakened the United States of America.

It proved his love of the constitution as nothing more than a prop to be used to become President.  Well - at least we  have no illusions that he isn't as principled as he advertised.  God forbid he should be honest with the public and simply explain his legal rational.

Worse, when he suddenly stated that Trump wouldn't qualify because Donald's MOTHER wasn't born on US soil - he showed his true colors.  He lied.  NO WHERE is a definition of 'natural born citizen' anything other than a US soil born child to two US citizen's, regardless of where those parents are born.  With that statement he proved that either he is completely ignorant of the real constitutional arguments - or he is a liar.   There isn't any other explanation.  Neither are comforting.

He also adopted the "Rules for Radicals" tactics (#5 and #13 if you don't have your Luciferian dedicated copy handy) of ridiculing your opponents argument, avoiding any substantive and meaningful discussion.  Rules for Radicals calls it INTENTIONALLY irrational.

Apparently Ted is fine with any Iranian, Russian or Saudi citizens with at least one citizen parent becoming President of the United States.  Whether or not forged birth certificates are acceptable to Ted is unclear.

Why the hell Trump didn't ask Cruz why the first draft of the constitution was changed from merely a "citizen" being eligible to be President (similar to what is allowable for Congress) to a "natural born citizen" at the request of John Jay  - the first Supreme Court Chief Justice - to George Washington...I'll never know.   I hope someone asks it in the final debate to see the extent of Mr. Cruz as yet unknown constitutional expertise.

But Donald Trump proved to me one thing.  Even at the enormous political risk of being called "a birther", he raised the question.  And he's so far ahead in the polls he didn't need to.  He deftly placed the danger on that of the Democrats picking up the legal attack and running with it.  And they not only WILL - they have said they will immediately challenge the election.   None the less.  Donald has been true to the subject since question Barack's forgeries and didn't lay down when given an opportunity to do so.

Trump is now more of a Constitutionalist than Ted Cruz.  And that shocks me.

It also makes me regret buying into the notion that Cruz was truly driven by principal over politics and substance over self-ambition.   He has done some great things in the Senate.  He certainly has fought hard against much of the RINO agenda.  But perhaps the last chance to finally stop the horrendous hoax perpetrated on America by the Muslim at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, may be lost forever.

Yes, he is a Muslim.  And worse, the REAL President is Iranian born Valarie Jarrett, who now has given Iran escape from sanctions, but permission to continue their nuclear development while flooding the market with cheap, terrorist financing oil.   As someone in the oil industry, the millions of jobs lost with the crash in oil is very much due to Iran's oil coming online.  I had Europeans tell me 2 years ago that they had assurances Iran would be open for ALL WESTERN BUSINESS.  Even I didn't think it was possible.

But look what having a Kenyan born President will do for you.   I'm sure there will still be some who will warn "why should we worry about Kenya!?  They couldn't do anything."  Yeah.  Right.

Don't think for a minute that every well financed enemy of the US isn't now grooming some Manchurian Candidate to get their feet wet in American politics.

Barry Soreto has been bad.   But Ted just opened the door wide for the very thing that John Jay feared.  An open invitation for foreign powers to find a way to perpetually control the White House.  And America.

Call me conspiratorial or fringe if you want.  You already did that when you promised me that the government would never lie about unemployment or satellite data, or that the government could force children to be taken from their families and poisoned against their will.   It happens every day across this country.  Worse, you are now forced not only to subsidize liberal's healthcare, you are now at risk of jail if you don't openly support their lifestyle.   Sure.  Go ahead and convince yourself that I'm the kook it in this equation if helps you sleep at night.

Although it his highly unlikely for Cruz to EVER become President, (his unfavorable ratings surpass his favorables among most Americans and the mainstream media will Sarah-Palinize the undecideds the day he is nominated), he has left me disillusioned that there will ever be a politician who will actually do what it is right, regardless of the personal cost.

But no.  I still don't buy that he is a closet Mitch McConnell.  Yet.

George Washington presided over the Constitutional Convention and had the qualifications for President changed SPECIFICALLY to disallow foreign born citizens from taking over the powerful reigns of our country in the position of Chief Executive.  It would seem Ted is ok with undermining  our heritage as well as our country.

Until now I didn't think the Goldman Sachs connection could possibly have merit.  But if a strict "constitutional conservative" no longer finds questions about the constitution "important," what's a little favoritism among cronyists who employ your wife?

For my fellow conservatives who hate Trump (I get it.  I really do.)  Or who feel that Cruz is the only "true" conservative in the race - I would ask you what else you would sell out to get your "guy" elected.

And if, at the end of the day, if Cruz is elected, but faces secret CAIR backed Mohammad Magnetic Personality in 2020 who has the media on his side and wins the White House....was it really worth it?

Seriously? You Expect Me To Be Thankful For This?

Obama-Garden-Delights-Scandals

As I write this, I’m unable to be with my family today, have numerous personal struggles, and have friends who are struggling to eat – much less walk in the fullness of their calling and careers.

On the national front, we see not only record poverty and unemployment, but - perhaps far worse - a poverty of character and moral compass that we as a nation used to be able to fall back on in crisis's of past.  A majority in our nation are enslaved by ignorance through a lying media and they continue to empower mostly spineless, weak and/or corrupt narcissists to spend our money and enslave all of us even further in more ways than we can imagine.  Communist owned Hong Kong is more economically free and former Soviet satellite Estonia may actually be a more free democracy than ours.

Seriously?  You expect me to thankful for this?

To the atheist or agnostic, (or self-absorbed) all that I can offer is that thankfulness is a key ingredient to happiness.  Researchers have proven that gratitude improves emotional and physical health, and it can strengthen relationships and communities.  Of course this required the subjects to FOCUS on what they grateful for as opposed to bitching and moaning about every problem they faced.  And if you believe that there is no purpose to your life other than a your carbon dioxide enrichment of our atmosphere – good luck with that.

However, the unfortunate thing is that without the acknowledgement of a Designer of your life you are akin to the kid who can only lick the cake batter spatula (after all your siblings and the family dog) as compared to feasting on the double fudge chocolate confection of REAL thankfulness to God that we Christians have.  Or are supposed to have despite crap hurricane that seems to never stop.

And for those that don’t just suspect or mentally suppose the existence of a Higher Power, but truly LEAN ON and TRUST Him, there is a much richer understanding and power available to you.

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV)

Interestingly enough, the Apostle Paul wrote this amidst similar political upheaval.  Despite enormous paganism and the worship of thousands of Gods throughout the land, Christians were – at best – thought of as annoying cult of weirdo’s (not that much different from today, right?) and – at worst – were targeted for death by Jews who felt they were a threat to Judaism.  Remember Paul himself had been a Christian killer not too long before this.   And Rome’s new emperor, Claudius, had just succeeded Caligula who was assassinated by Senators and his own Praetorian Guard.  You think Obama’s bad?  Here is the Wikipedia short description of Caligula:

An insane emperor who was self-absorbed, angry, killed on a whim, and indulged in too much spending and sex. He is accused of sleeping with other men's wives and bragging about it, killing for mere amusement, deliberately wasting money on his bridge, causing starvation, and wanting a statue of himself erected in the Temple of Jerusalem for his worship. Once, at some games at which he was presiding, he ordered his guards to throw an entire section of the crowd into the arena during intermission to be eaten by animals because there were no criminals to be prosecuted and he was bored.

The point is, the “will of God” of being THANKFUL for those of us who believe in God isn’t subject to the success of our political freedom or prospects.  Which is very hard sometimes for us to grasp.

When I first heard this scripture in my 20’s after becoming a Christian, I thought “So should I be thankful if I get in a car accident and loose my arm?”

Many well intentioned Christian denominations have made it even harder by a false teaching that God inflicts us with these problems to make us stronger or to teach us “character.”

Funny, I can’t remember a SINGLE incident where a paralytic approached Jesus to be healed and Christ said, “You haven’t learned humility quite well enough yet.  Come back in two years after you’re REALLY grateful that you’re even alive.”

No!  Instead Jesus healed EVERYONE who came to Him.  And He went further telling us to ASK ANYTHING we wanted from Him.  And He reasoned that God gives GOOD things, not evil things when we ask:

…what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Matthew 7:9-11

It is difficult for even Christians to fathom (let alone non-Believers), but GOD is “Love” as the bible states, and He is also an uncompromising Judge for perfection in thought as well as actions.  But as the reference from Matthew explains – we are to identify with God as “Daddy” first and foremost above His identity as the Supreme Ruler of the Universe who could snuff out our life with a mere thought. 

This shouldn’t be so foreign to us.  We ALL carry multiple labels and perceptions that differ from our family, our friends and those that work with us.  The child of a special operations Army Ranger RUNS to his father, even if there was a rifle in his hand, because that child knows that their relationship is in the bounds of “Daddy” and not “Sniper.”  That child doesn’t give a second thought to a misuse of his daddy’s power or intention against those who are enemies.  And it doesn’t make his father any less of a badass to Islamic terrorists who desire to do unspeakable things to that soldier's son.  (Just like the devil by the way.)

Go look it up.  JESUS always called God “Abba” (which means “Daddy”) except for the one instance where He took upon Himself all of our sin and condemnation and judgment on the cross. 

Yes, there will be a day of judgment.  But Jesus hasn’t come back to do that yet. 

And when we TRULY know God as Jesus did, (as Daddy) not only do we gain the gift acceptance, love and approval (bought for us by the perfection and blood of His ONLY truly “genetic” Son Jesus), we also now place ourselves in a position to RECEIVE from God what we ask and what we need.   TALK ABOUT A REASON FOR BEING THANKFUL!

(Did you get that?  Not only does the most powerful Being in the Universe SEE YOU like His perfect Son with NO sin, you can ask HIM FOR STUFF and He’ll HEAR YOU!)

Doesn’t the scripture tell us in one town, Jesus could not heal many because they simply couldn’t BELIEVE that He could or would?  Didn’t the “good” son in the parable of the prodigal never get a pig roast and party from the father simply because he never asked – or thought he could?

BELIEVING that God is good EMPOWERS you to receive from Him!

The first thing we should be grateful for is that God loves us each, individually as BELOVED children – regardless of how “good” we are since it is the blood of His Son that makes us righteous in the Father’s eyes.

And the second thing we should be grateful is that GOD IS WILLING to change our economy, our political and tax enslavement for us and our children.  HE said to ask him for “good things.”  Asking for a rebirth of FINANCIAL and POLITICAL FREEDOM qualifies, just as it did for His people enslaved in Egypt.

But it requires FAITH.  And here is the secret: THANKFULNESS that God will grant us what we ask.  (Because we know it is already granted to us by our Father – even before we ask for it!)

When talking about Wisdom, James says:

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

James 1:5 NKJV

The disciples were SHOCKED when Jesus merely spoke death to a fig tree and a day later it shriveled up.  He explained:

And Jesus, replying, said to them, Have faith in God [constantly].

Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.

For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident) that it is granted to you, and you will [get it].

Mark 11:22-25 AMP

Notice Jesus said “GRANTED” as in PAST TENSE.  So our prayers for ourselves and our country should be in the EXPECTANCY that He is NOT done with us yet (as George Washington foresaw) and that He WANTS us to prosper as a Godly nation again.

If we ever needed anything lifted from the “dead” the state of our nation is it.  How did Jesus raise Lazarus? HE THANKED GOD THAT HE WOULD DO SO.

And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.

42 Yes, I know You always hear and listen to Me, but I have said this on account of and for the benefit of the people standing around, so that they may believe that You did send Me [that You have made Me Your Messenger].

43 When He had said this, He shouted with a loud voice, Lazarus, come out!

44 And out walked the man who had been dead, his hands and feet wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] napkin bound around his face. Jesus said to them, Free him of the burial wrappings and let him go.

John 11:41-44 AMP

Do we really think that complaining to each other – or God - about how bad Obama, the abortionists, the big bank cronies or race baiters are will change a single one of them?  We are fools if we think so because NO WHERE did Jesus or the disciples say, “If thou bitchest loud enough I will reenact the face melting scene of Raiders of the Lost of Ark upon those that violate the Constitution and blaspheme My Name.

Even the Old Testament – which required “works” instead of faith (as is to those of us under the New Testament privilege of Jesus’ blood) said:

if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)

The word “seek” (baqash) carries with it a demand, to require something.  In this case it is to get God’s attention.  IF you know Your Daddy is predisposed to your wellbeing and requests, especially those that are His Will, we now pray (as we read earlier) EXPECTING that we already have it.  The Apostle John put it this way:

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

1 John 5:14-15 (NKJV)

So what we are THANKING God for is not just the amazing grace and mercy He has shown us in not already allowing America to turn into Islamabad, but in EXPECTATION that He loves us, He has a covenant with us as a country, and that OUR BELIEF in His Goodness and in His Promise will be seen to glorify Him.

It’s NOT in our control but His.  But our FAITH that He will intervene essentially is “Thanksgiving in advance” for what we ask.

So yeah.  HAPPY Thanksgiving.

THANK YOU Lord that You are merciful and gracious to us individually, and as a country. 

Thank you that you DO still have a mighty work for America in demonstrating true FREEDOM with Your righteousness to the world, and positioning us again to be a FORCE FOR GOOD. 

THANK YOU for exposing and removing the pernicious political playmakers who have been subversively undermining our Constitution, our banking system, our economy and our culture and please Lord RELEASE Your Holy Spirit across this nation and give us pride once again in a nation UNDER GOD and Indivisible for You.

Amen. 

 

 

Jesus gave thanks BEFORE He multiplied the loaves and fishes for the 5,000.
