Beat the Surveillance State

So our illustrious Harvard professor of the U.S. Constitution turned President has been presiding over George W. Bush-style surveillance of the American people vis-a-vis the alphabet soup agencies that George Washington would nuke if he were alive. Well, are we surprised? We voted for this over the past 75 years. It is our bread and butter in America – military, both foreign and domestic… and when you can’t find enough enemies to fit a budget of $700,000,000,000.00 a year, you turn inward and fight your own people. Happens every time people worship the State! In any case, be sure to greet the President each time you call mom or order Chinese – it’s rude not to acknowledge him and his friends now that we know they are in our company at all times. Hello, Mr. President! I’m about as much a threat to national security as Mr. Rogers, but I understand if you want to keep tabs on me. At least land me a few hits on my blog, eh? It’s no fair when you sneak around and play hard to get. Let’s agree on some rules, huh? Oh, wait – that we did in 1787, and you’re an infidel to those oaths… nevermind.

Fun in the Sun

Instead of letting the encroaching Fourth Reich get your gander, I think it’s a good time for Americans to get back to basics. Tired of sharing all of your intimate secrets with desert-wide storage facilities? There’s this awesome new invention called go outside – it works like this… Put down the government microphone (your smart-phone), turn off the big-brother box (laptop and iPad), and search around for your front door. Don’t be scared! Walk outside, down the street, and into the nearest forest; bring a loved one with you too. Find a log or a nice, dry grassy spot. Now talk to each other. Privacy – nobody can hear you. outside Ask each other questions. Learn about one another’s passions. Encourage one another. If you’re alone, meditate on the glory of God who made all things. Seek His face – pray and enjoy your short life in His world. Or go for a drive in the countryside, and listen to something mellow. Maybe send a paper letter to a family member or friend from your past – most of those aren’t read by the government. Write a story, do some crafts with your own two hands, go fishing… love one another. Remember to live this life holding very loosely to the gadgets of this world – they can be taken away in a moment. And if you find yourself enslaved to things, having sold yourself to the baubles of wealth and comfort and status, it’s never too late to repent. It’s never too late to receive the gospel truths of Jesus Christ who sets us free from the fear of men and their monstrous agendas. — -Justin

Everyone Knows what Abortion is

On the edge of the legalization of abortion-on-demand, a California Medicine journal article from September 1970 told the truth, and the whole truth. Keep in mind, this is a pro-abortion editorial I’m quoting from:

Since the old [Judeo-Christian] ethic [of the sanctity of life] has not yet been fully displaced [by the new ethic which places relative rather than absolute value on human lives] it has been necessary to separate the idea of abortion from the idea of killing, which continues to be socially abhorrent. The result has been a curious avoidance of the scientific fact, which everyone really knows, that human life begins at conception and is continuous whether intra- or extra-uterine until death.

The very considerable semantic gymnastics which are required to rationalize abortion as anything but taking a human life would be ludicrous if they were not often put forth under socially impeccable auspices. It is suggested that this schizophrenic sort of subterfuge is necessary because while a new ethic is being accepted the old one has not yet been rejected. [1]

With the above quote in mind, what kind of people do you think are in charge of this nation, who unashamedly approve of the homicide of millions of kids? Better question: what kind of people are we all, that we not only allow this to continue, but actually approve of it by our votes in the ballot box and in our silence?

Black Tie Event, Black President Praises Black Genocide

Last week President Barack Obama addressed the Planned Parenthood (AKA Minority Population Reduction Centers of AmeriKa) annual gala, in which he praised their work, and ended his speech with “God bless you.”

The American Spectator has a lucid article critiquing this Orwellian moment. Paul Kengor writes

It reminds me of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic nearest to me, which has windows with colorful drawings and balloons, the look of a cheerful daycare center. The difference, however, is that mom and child walk in, but the child never returns. That’s really what Planned Parenthood “is about.”

Everyone knows it. Barack Obama knows it.

(Do be sure to see page 2 of the AS article).

Just like the California Medicine article above noted. We all know what is happening in the abortion mills around our nation. We know what kind of people we are, and we are experts in covering it up with medicine, entertainment, and self-help jargon.

I’m reminded of some cutting words of Yahweh through the prophet Jeremiah. Although the context is ancient Judah, yet the prophecy is fresh and precise applied to the apostate Church in America. Read it all:

5:20 “Declare this in the house of Jacob
And proclaim it in Judah [AmeriKa], saying,
21 ‘Hear this now, O foolish people,
Without understanding,
Who have eyes and see not,
And who have ears and hear not:
22 Do you not fear Me?’ says Yahweh.
‘Will you not tremble at My presence,
Who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea,
By a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it?
And though its waves toss to and fro,
Yet they cannot prevail;
Though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it.
23 But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart;
They have revolted and departed.
24 They do not say in their heart,
“Let us now fear the Lord our God,
Who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season.
He reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.”
25 Your iniquities have turned these things away,
And your sins have withheld good from you.

26 ‘For among My people are found wicked men;
They lie in wait as one who sets snares;
They set a trap;
They catch men.
27 As a cage is full of birds,
So their houses are full of deceit.
Therefore they have become great and grown rich.
28 They have grown fat, they are sleek;
Yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked;
They do not plead the cause,
The cause of the fatherless;
Yet they prosper,
And the right of the needy they do not defend.
29 Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says Yahweh.
Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’

30 “An astonishing and horrible thing
Has been committed in the land:
31 The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule by their own power;
And My people love to have it so.
But what will you do in the end? (NKJV)

The Night America Sat Up in the Morgue Freezer: Thank you Rand Paul

The national body was  being slid into the morgue freezer: the President, following in the steps of his predecessor, had been declaring the Constitution null and void: this Administration may need to, and is allowed to target Americans on American soil for execution; no arrest, no trial by a jury of peers, no judge – just your President making a secret decision that you might be dangerous. Screw the Bill of Rights, the globe is our war-zone.

The President might need to decide to kill you by a flying robot with a missile.

1984 on steroids. The American people yawned, looking for another television fix.

And then there was Rand Paul.Rand Paul  The national body sat bolt upright just before being slid into the morgue freezer. Eyes wide open. Big breath of air. A gasp.

No, Mr. President. You may not break the law with impunity. We will not sit idly by and watch you shred the last of our Constitution. We will be heard.

Nearly 13 hours of filibustering on the Senate floor, and I remembered. I remembered what America was supposed to be. I remembered that although we’ve been a very dark nation in many ways (Native Americans and Africans, etc), our founding ideals were always higher. We may never have lived up to them, but many of our ancestors have tried.

The spirit of America has fought and struggled to break through the bounds of human limitation and mediocrity. We have been, many times, a shining beacon of hope for many poor and oppressed people. Imperfect, but still the best country in the world.

And an imperfect man stood last night on the Senate floor and reminded me of these things. He reminded me that not every person in Washington D.C. is a sold-out con artist. He reminded me that although our country has been lost to her enemies, that we will not go quietly into the night (pardon the cliched tone, I’m not ashamed of it right now).

Thank you, Rand Paul. I supported your Senate campaign, and have worried from time to time that your soul was being stolen in D.C. You made me proud to be an American. A Constitutionalist. Thank you, Senators who stood with Rand. I hope you have the courage to stand with him in the days to come, because many of us will stand with you on the right side of history, in the face of overwhelming evil.

I’m grateful to be an American. God has been very patient and kind to our nation.

I’ll leave us with some quotes from the historic filibuster of Rand Paul March 6, 2013.

Taking a stand: “I have allowed the president to pick his political appointees…But I will not sit quietly and let him shred the Constitution.”

On Obama: “He was elected by a majority, but the majority doesn’t get to decide who we execute.”

On Obama’s civil liberties flip-flop: “I think its also safe to say that Barack Obama of 2007 would be right down here with me arguing against this drone-strike program if he were in the Senate.”

On the Senate: “If there were an ounce of courage in this body I would be joined by other senators… saying they will not tolerate this.”

On the Constitution and the law: “I’m not saying that anyone is Hitler, don’t misunderstand me. But what I am saying that is…when a democracy gets it wrong, you want the law to be in place.”

On making a point: “This will be a blip in his nomination process. But I hope people will see it as an argument for how important our rights are.”

On White House “kill list”: “The people on the list might be me.”

At around 8:09 p.m. ET, Paul asked Americans,

“Are you so afraid that you are willing to trade your freedom for security?”

Thanks for reading,

-Justin

P.S. Hey Christians, please pray for our President, and our leaders in Washington.
