Why do I vote only for pro-life candidates?

 As far back as July 4, 1776, we as a people have embraced the right to life, as expressed in the Unanimous Declaration of Independence.

“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”

LIBERTARIAN PARTY POSITION ON ABORTION

“Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.”

DEMOCRAT PARTY POSITION ON ABORTION

Statement-1 “We will appoint judges who defend the constitutional principles of liberty and equality for all, and will protect a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion”

Statement-2 “We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion”

Statement-3 “We will continue to oppose—and seek to overturn—federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment.”

Statement-4 “We will support sexual and reproductive health and rights around the globe. In addition to expanding the availability of affordable family planning information and contraceptive supplies, we believe that safe abortion must be part of comprehensive maternal and women’s health care and included as part of America’s global health programming.”

REPUBLICAN PARTY POSITION ON ABORTION

Statement-1 “The Constitution’s guarantee that no one can “be deprived of life, liberty or property” deliberately echoes the Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that “all” are “endowed by their Creator” with the inalienable right to life. Accordingly, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed.”

Statement-2 “We oppose the use of public funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund organizations, like Planned Parenthood, so long as they provide or refer for elective abortions or sell fetal body parts rather than provide healthcare.”

Statement-3 “We condemn the Supreme Court’s activist decision in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt striking down commonsense Texas laws providing for basic health and safety standards in abortion clinics.”

CONCLUSION

Libertarians and Democrats hold a position contrary to the principle of government set forth in the Declaration of Independence.

A government that does not secure the Right to Life will not shy from denying all other rights.

In this November election, the Democrat Party and the Libertarian Party publicly stand for abortion on demand. Government sanctioned murder of children in the womb is anathema to the principles upon which this nation was founded.

Furthermore, the fundamental Right to Life was made an ordinance for all mankind via The Sixth Commandment of the Law given by God through Moses that prohibits murder (Exodus 20:13, Proverbs 16:16-19)

Only the Republican Party aligns with history, the Will of God and the Declaration of Independence.

Charlotte Charade – Communists Behind the Cause

Update: Police arrest suspect in killing of Charlotte protester, say curfew will remain in place – The Washington Post <!–

Update: NAACP Leader Speaking Against Cops In Charlotte Financed By George Soros

Police arrest suspect in killing of Charlotte protester, say curfew will remain in place

Blacks in Charlotte, NC claim mistreatment by police officers, even when a black police officer shoots an armed black man. From all accounts thus published, the two were both good men. As is often the case, witness accounts contradict one another.

Rioters have destroyed police vehicles, set fires and rifled stalled freight truck they pillaged.

charlotte-nc-riots-september-2016

What’s behind the riots? Who are the rioters and what’s driving them? Now we know partial answers to these questions.

Who Is Behind The Riots? Charlotte Police Says 70% Of Arrested Protesters Had Out Of State IDs

Flashback: George Soros funds Ferguson protests, hopes to spur civil action

Obama Pens Open Letter to America’s Police

George Soros’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice system

My opinions?

Obama’s very public disrespect for the rule of law and law enforcement officers is at the heart of these riots. Blacks assume a black man can do no wrong as they also assume law enforcement officers can do no good.

The proof this riot was engineered lies in the identities of the rioters of whom 70% of the arrested individuals are from out of state. Do you recall the Baltimore riots? Democrat Congressman Elijah Cummings was there to see first hand what was happening. This is what The Hill reported: Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) alleged Sunday that many rioters in Baltimore the previous night were from “out of town,” noting that he was amid crowds in the area.

I have long believed Barack Obama to be a closet communist. He was born to communist parents, raised by communist grandparents and mentored by a communist. If it walks like a communist and talks like a communist, it’s a communist.

The Principle of Significance

yogi-advice-for-november-electionsSo, you think you know your Bible? From which book of the Bible comes the principle of significance? You don’t know?
Look to Deuteronomy chapter 1 verses 9 through 18 with me.
Moses was wearing himself out as he counseled his fellow Jews, settling disputes and dispensing wisdom. It’s helpful to read Exodus 18:18-26 for context.
Doing the math, there were over 1,000,000 Israelites led out of Egyptian bondage. Moses was one man. Assuming 20 minutes per counseling session, 8 hours sleep each night with no activity on the Sabbath for 24 hours, that left 5,760 minutes per week, or time available to counsel 288 persons per week. 288 X 52 = 14,976 counseled Jews per year. Simply stated, if Moses did nothing but counsel people his every waking hour, he would have been able to only deal with 1.5% of the population.
If you are one in a million, you shouldn’t count on being very significant to a government person.
So, what wisdom did Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law dispense? Jethro instilled in Moses’ thinking the principle of significance.
Looking back to Exodus 18, verse 25, we learn how better it is to be one in thousand than to be one in a million. The smaller the representation, the greater the significance of the individual.
It was the Biblical principle of significance that inspired our founding fathers to create a bicameral Congress that lends significance to the individual (House of Representatives) and significance to the separate states (Senate).
The system of checks and balances built into our human government is essential to good order because of the sin nature of man. Establishment and maintenance of the Legislative branch serves to secure your rights through the principle of significance.
What is your significance to God? Well, consider these facts:
1 – He created you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5, Psalm 139:13, Isaiah 44:2)
2 – God sent his only natural-born son to take upon himself the penalty for your sins. (John 3:16, 1 Peter 2:24)
3 – If you yield to his grace and call upon his name, you will become an adopted son of God. (Romans 8:15)
If you were the only living person on earth, God would have sent his son to die for you in order that you could have eternal life.
Are you are significant?
I encourage you to start reading the Bible daily, not just at church or synagogue.
As Yogi Berra famously said, “You can observe a lot by just watching.”

Lies, Damned Lies, and Facts About the Dakota Access Pipeline

The Obama community organizing political machine has done a bang-up job of creating negative public sentiment against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Alright, all my Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn friends, can you handle the truth?

First, my friends, the below map shows locations of Indian reservations in North Dakota. Look closely, now.

north-dakota-map-of-indian-reservations
This next map shows the planned, approved, route of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Again, look closely.

north dakota map of the dakota access pipeline.png
What do you know? Shazzam! The pipeline was never planned to cross “sacred Indian territory”. The route is all on private land.

What now? Will you continue to like and share false memes or help communicate the truth?

Warren Buffet, crony capitalist buddy to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama owns the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad that presently hauls Baaken oil. When did Indians ever protest oil spills from derailed tanker cars? Link to American Thinker: Warren Buffett and the Keystone Decision.

There are over 2,500,000 pipelines that perform safely and reliably each moment of our lives to deliver various liquids and gasses essential to our American way of life. Read Pipeline 101: Where Are Liquids Pipelines Located?

Excerpt:

The United States has the largest network of energy pipelines in the world, with more than 2.5 million miles of pipe.

The network of crude oil pipelines in the U.S. is extensive. There are approximately 55,000 miles of crude oil trunk lines (usually 8 – 24 inches in diameter) in the U.S. that connect regional markets.

Generosity + Wisdom = Satisfaction

The Kingdom of God is neither a hedge fund nor a slot machine.

generosity

Several decades ago there was a church in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex led by a pastor who preached unconditional prosperity to those who donated generously to the church and his ministry.

On one occasion, my wife and I chanced to dine in a restaurant with a married couple from that church. When the check came, he looked apprehensively at his wife as he pulled a credit card from his wallet to pay the tab. In summary, I sensed the couple could not afford this act of generosity. The man was paying for our dinner together with borrowed money he may not have been able to repay to his creditor.

It became apparent to me the man was following a false notion of the Kingdom of God.

The Apostle Paul, writing in his second letter to the Christians in Corinth, said, “Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have.”

When did you last hear a sermon that incorporated this idea of giving ‘according to what you have, not what you don’t have’?

Jesus employed parables, short stories, to illustrate the Kingdom of God. One such story compared the planting of a mustard seed.

Then Jesus said, “What is the Kingdom of God like? How can I illustrate it? It is like a tiny mustard seed that a man planted in a garden; it grows and becomes a tree, and the birds make nests in its branches.” [Luke 13:18-19 NLT]

The farmer planted a seed that was in his possession. He was not borrowing from the local ‘seed bank’.

So, from what or whom did the farmer get that mustard seed to plant? I leave that ‘rabbit’ for you to chase on your own. Let’s stick to the point for now.

The point is simply this: Give from what you actually have. Abandon any notion of trying to impress God by adding debt to fund your pseudo-generosity.

One more story, this from the Old Testament, 1 Kings 17:7-16.

The prophet Elijah, hungry from his travels, visits a poor widow in an area called Zarephath. He asks food and water of the widow who explains how she had just enough for her son and herself. However, she obeyed Elijah, fed him, he rewarded her, she and her son prospered and you can read for yourself how she lived pretty much happily thereafter from 1 Kings 17:7-16.

Points to consider:
1-the widow was not a Jew.
2-Zaraphath was in the backyard of Elijah’s worst enemy
3-she gave from her meager food supplies, she did not buy food using a credit card that she would be unable repay when the monthly bill came in the mail.

Why did Elijah go to this poor widow for sustenance?

Why would a poor widow give a stranger food so desperately needed by her son and herself?

In both cases, it was the grace of God to which they yielded. What is grace? Let’s look to Philippians 2:13 for a definition:

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.

Grace is a two part gift from God. Part ‘A’ is a desire to act. Part ‘B’ is the power to fulfill part ‘A’.

Romans 8:14 says, “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.”

Bottom Line: Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you. Meditate on the aforementioned Bible verses. Think not for a moment you can ‘bribe’ God into blessing you. As the prophet Samuel said to presumptuous King Saul, obedience is better than sacrifice.

When God’s grace acts within you to be generous, go ‘pedal to the metal’. You will truly find obedience to is refreshing.

Canada elects to feed heroin addicts instead of healing them

 

Canada approves prescription heroin.png
click on image for WAPO story

Justin Trudeau follows a progressive path in the treatment of heroin addicts. No longer do they have to buy heroin, he gives it to them three times a day for free. Is this an acceptable method to heal heroin addicts from their addiction?

The recidivism, the predictable behavior of heroin addicts clearly proves the addicts cannot break free from their addictions on their own. They need help, not something that will assure an early death.

Is heroin addiction impossible to break? Difficult? Yes. Impossible? No.

Bill Dinker’s compelling testimony of own addiction and recovery should be read by Canadian PM Justin Trudeau.

We know wife-beaters are addicted to family violence. Is the prescription to correct a wife-beater, give him liberty to beat his wife? No. By no means.

People who cannot control themselves must come under the control of someone else to aid their recovery.

Is recovery from addiction difficult? Yes, seemingly impossible for most. Recovery from life-threatening illness is naturally difficult, but not impossible.

Progressives like Mr. Trudeau undermine the foundations of society.

 

 

No more funding of abortion and homosexuality for me – Adios, Starbucks

A portion of every dollar you spend at Starbucks funds the world’s largest abortion provider and funds the LGBT agenda.
starbucks-unholy-triad
In 2013, Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz defended the company’s decision to support same-sex marriage, and told investors that if they weren’t on board, they could sell their stock and go elsewhere. http://ow.ly/Dl13303ZzIM
 
Starbucks rewards customers for contributing to Planned Parenthood
 
Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz endorses Hillary Clinton for President.
 
Personal: I have been a Starbucks customer for over 12 years. I love their products and I used their stores as my “branch offices” to meet clients. No other company’s coffee products compare to the flavors and varieties of Starbucks. Wi-Fi and comfortable surroundings provide a welcoming environment for meetings, whether friendships or clients.
 
But, no more. I removed my Starbucks gold card from my wallet. Why? My conscience does not allow me to fund atheistic, unholy enterprises like Planned Parenthood and the LGBT movement that seeks to redefine traditional, Biblical marriage.
 
You may wish to ignore the above truth. I cannot. I tried to ignore my conscience, but then I was going counter to a bedrock principle of never going contrary to my conscience.
