Obama, Climate Change, Fact and Fantasy

Back in the day, we were headed into a new ice age, according to ‘experts’. Later, ‘experts’ declared we were at risk of global annihilation due to global warming. Lately, the pop topic is ‘climate change’.

One year ago, on May 20, 2015, Barack Obama warned:

Around Norfolk, high tides, and storms increasingly flood parts of our Navy base and an air base…In Alaska, thawing permafrost is damaging military facilities. Out West, deeper droughts, and longer wildfires could threaten training areas our troops depend on.”

Oh, where was the science? Is water rising on our Norfolk, VA naval facilities? Yes. Is it due to rising tides? No. Well, what’s happening? Land subsidence. Plain and simple. As reported in the Virginia Pilot back in 2010, land subsidence is the reason Atlantic waters encroach on naval ports.

Where are we six years after that Virginia Pilot report on land subsidence? Tides are actually falling, not rising.

The sea levels are now reducing in the “hotspots of acceleration” of Washington and New York

Indisputable. Really, Mr. President? Who am I to question the opinions of such climate experts as Bill Nye (not a scientist), Al Gore (also not a scientist) and Barack Obama (you know the routine).

What’s next from the Democrats? How about violations of the First Amendment rights to free speech and redress of grievances?

“In news that should shock and anger Americans, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that not only has she discussed internally the possibility of pursuing civil actions against so-called “climate change deniers,” but she has “referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action.”” – The Daily Signal

However imperfect Donald Trump may be, any Democrats, whether the next president or U.S. senators, will sink this nation into oblivion. Look to Venezuela as the end of totalitarian socialism.

What do Bill Nye, Al Gore and Barack Obama share in common? None of them are bona fide scientists. They are hooligans.

No, to me, Donald Trump is not the savior of America. Jesus Christ has not retired from that august position. But, ANY Republican we put in office is by far a better choice than any Democrat that can slither his or her way in.

Is Tesla Motors Doomed to Fail?

In a Bloomberg Technology story titled “Tesla’s Wild New Forecast Changes the Trajectory of an Entire Industry“, Elon Musk projects the sales of Tesla Model 3 to run 500,000 per year, starting in 2018. Very ambitious, but can he do it? As the author of the article points out, the writes, “For context: Tesla has never managed to hit one of Musk’s timelines for a new product launch. Not once.”

What’s behind Mr. Musk’s ambitious sales projections? Is it the cleverness of his designs? Could it be car buyers are hungry for ‘green’ technology? What about pricing? How will the Model 3 fit the budgets of average car buyers? I say the answers to these questions are no, no and no.

Elon Musk, while an exciting entrepreneur whose exploits are legendary, the truth is his successes have been paid for by your tax dollars, BORROWED tax dollars. He rushes his sales and production schedule to capture a government-subsidized market.

the scramble for subsidies
Government subsidies are anathema to a free-market economy. When foreign governments subsidize their manufacturers, American business owners cry ‘foul’. So, if we do it, it’s okay?

What happens to Tesla sales AFTER the subsidies end? How do the $7,500/car subsidies affect the federal budget?

Do the math. 500,000 vehicles per year X $7,500 = $3,750,000,000 additional national debt added the first year.

The Bloomberg article compares Henry Ford’s Model T to the Elon Musk Model 3. Is this a fair comparison? Henry’s success came from efficient production. Mr. Ford’s Model T was a resounding success because it was truly aFORDable without government subsidies.

My prediction: Chevrolet and other automobile manufacturers will produce competitively priced products BELOW the Tesla’s sticker price, particularly after subsidies end.

The fact that Elon Musk’s ambitious projections have never materialized in the past and the fact highly competitive auto makers will flood the market with high-quality, low-priced electric and hybrid vehicles, Tesla Motors is doomed to failure.

HuffPo and Puff as You May, Homosexuality is Still a Sin

Huffington Post attempts to normalize homosexuality through a false narrative on the history of Islam.
 
The writer’s objective is all too obvious. HuffPo writer Maggie MacNeely ignorantly or willfully equivocates the status of eunuchs as ‘transgenders’. They were not. [Link to HuffPo story http://ow.ly/GdVZ300G5fI]

Are there Muslims who practice homosexuality? Most certainly. You may be surprised to learn that the Israeli city of Tel Aviv is the most homosexual city in the world. It is to Tel Aviv that Muslim homosexuals flee to avoid prosecution and persecution in their native countries. But, apart from Afganistan, even Islamists believe homosexual behavior is a sin. [Quran references 7:80-84, 26:165-166, 4:16]
 
Afghanistan, that Muslim nation between Iran and Pakistan, is rife with pederasty (homosexual relations between men and boys). Learn about Bacha Bazi from Wikipedia:
 
“Bacha bāzī (Persian: بچه بازی‎‎, literally “boy play”; from بچه bacha, “child”, and بازی bāzī, “game”) is a slang term in Afghanistan for a wide variety of activities that involve child sexual abuse and pederasty. The perpetrator is commonly called Bacha Baz (meaning “pedophile” in Persian). It may include to some extent child pornography, sexual slavery, and child prostitution in which prepubescent and adolescent boys are sold to wealthy or powerful men for entertainment and sexual activities. Bacha bazi has existed throughout history, and is currently reported in various parts of Afghanistan.”
Bacha-1
 
Our military forces are under orders to “look the other way” while Afghan officers rape little boys. Here’s an excellent accounting of this hideous situation from the NY Times: “U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies”. [Link to story http://ow.ly/xcAs300G5oa]
 
Yes, homosexual behaviors have been with us over 4,000 years as I document in my story titled “Homosexuality and Tyranny: Bedfellows for over 4,000 years” [Link to story http://ow.ly/fHZW300G5t5]
 
It’s helpful to point out the fact murder has been ongoing even longer than homosexuality, dating back to when Cain slew his brother Abel.
 
Should we then deem murder ‘normal’? No, and we should not deem homosexuality ‘normal’ either. Both are harmful to our fellow citizens and both are anathema to God.
Are there sins worse than homosexuality? Indeed, there are, however, all sin is unacceptable to God. [Bible references Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, 1 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Romans 1:26-28]
 
Apart from blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, there is no such thing as unpardonable sin, including the sin of homosexuality. God sent his son Jesus the Christ, the Messiah or Yeshua Ha-Mashiach to Jews, or Isa to Muslims, to pay the penalty for our sins. As it is written in Romans 10:13,
For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.””

2016 Elections: Ignorance is a Choice.

Dr. Martin Luther King decried willful ignorance: “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

ignorance_is_a_choice

Ronald Reagan placed the spotlight on progressives, saying, “The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.

Mr. Carvin, my ninth-grade English teacher daily posted wise sayings on the far right-hand side of his chalkboard. I remember best one saying he attributed to Confucious:

“He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool – shun him.

He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child – teach him.

He who knows, and knows that he knows, is a wise man – follow him.”

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution identifies five freedoms, five natural rights. Do you know them?

1 – Freedom of Religion: This is not a ‘freedom of worship’. This is the freedom to live out your religion publicly and privately.
2 – Freedom of Speech: We have no natural right to slander one another. This freedom is our natural right to speak out against a faulty government.
3 – Freedom of the Press: Unlike the second freedom above, this natural right facilitates diffusion of sentiments among the people to shame corrupt government officials or agencies.
4 – Freedom to Assemble Peaceably, also called Freedom of Association: We have the natural right to be with others to peaceably address grievances or complaints against government wrongdoing. We have no right to destroy the property of others or to disrupt the lives of others while assembled, the definition of a mob.
5 – Freedom to Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievances: Self-explanatory – sign petitions, write or call your congressman, etc.

I say the above and that which follows to encourage my fellow Americans to be intentionally well-informed before going to the polls.

I see in Holy Scripture an ancient prophecy about our times. The Apostle Paul wrote, “For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths.

Such is the phenomenon of score cards that lend the appearance of a ‘quick start guide’, but most often virtual puppet strings pulled by a special interest group .

Today we cast ballots in the runoff elections; in November, we make choices that will shape the future of our nation for all time.

Google is a good research tool. Libraries, also. My number one choice for research is prayer. As it is written, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth.

What is truth? The truth is the way things really are. Will you succumb to score cards or will you follow the example of the Bereans? The Bereans “were more willing to understand” what they were hearing than the larger body of their fellow citizens; the Bereans researched “to see if those things were true“.

Choose wisely, my friends.

Government Mandated Homosexuality – Seeing a Point of No Return on the Horizon

A retired public school teacher remarked to me how she has come to believe homosexuality among high school students is ‘normal’ “because there is so much of it“. This begs the question: What is normal?

One dictionary defines normal as an adjective: serving to establish a standard.  As my business associate of many years has said, “The wonderful thing about standards is there are so many to choose from.”

For over 4,000 years homosexual acts have been anathema to People of the Book and later Muslims. (People of the Book, POB, is a Muslim reference to Jews and Christians.) Read Homosexuality and Tyranny: Bedfellows for over 4,000 years to catch up on the history of homosexuality. The universally accepted standard for wholesome families has been males bonding with females.

What changed the normal for the American family? It was a ruling by the Warren court in 1958 that undermined the original intent of the Eighth Amendment. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, “The [Eighth] Amendment must draw its meaning from the evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society.

Evolving standards of decency led the Canadian parliament to mandate homosexuality as the new normal in 2005, merely eleven years ago. Within two years of the so-called hate-crime law, Canadian courts ruled unlawful the criticism of homosexuality, a ruling that was a stake in the heart of the freedom of speech. For more on this subject and its deleterious effects on Canadian society, read A Warning from Canada: Same-Sex Marriage Erodes Fundamental Rights.

Dawn Stefanowicz delivers a provocative, gripping, no-holds-barred account of what it was like to grow up with a homosexual father

The term progressive in contemporary America should be understood for what it actually is. Progressives are actually digressive. I say this on the basis of the one immutable, unchanging standard of decency, the Holy Bible as summarized by the Ten Commandments. The Living God, Creator of the universe, El Shaddai is the immutable standard of decency and has been on record thousands of years, about five thousand years, as a matter of fact.

As corporations like Target, Kohls and Frito-Lay began to invite men into the restrooms, dressing rooms and showers formerly reserved for women and girls, our mayor Jim Pruitt proposed an ordinance to protect our women and girls. One sad note was a Rockwall mother, a teacher at a nearby university who proudly announced her ‘transgendered’ child, spoke against the ordinance. In her brief speech, she referred to her offspring as he, she, him and her. DMN story Rockwall mom seeks safe, loving world for transgender daughter. In my nearly seven decades of life I never once considered having a daughter with male genitalia.

American society accelerates a race toward a point of no return where the foundational principle of majority rule, the rule of law, traditional standards of decency go by the wayside as progressives push to normalize homosexuality. The contemporary Democrat Party embraces and embodies all that progressives stand for: mandatory official atheism, mandatory homosexuality, and socialism.

What’s the cure? Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago revealed that the cure for sin is the sacrifice of himself. As it is written, “But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” He warned of a place reserved for those who reject him where the maggots never die and the fire never goes out.

Time is coming and is nigh upon us when our federal government will mandate homosexuality – aka sodomy, aka unnatural affections – upon all of our American society. Progressives, if successful, will effectively outlaw Christianity and nullify the Bill of Rights. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders agree on this agenda, as do ungodly leaders of the Democrat Party.

My suggestion: Turn from wickedness to the one True God in whose hands are the gifts of forgiveness and eternal life.

I close, leaving the testimony of a transgendered man who repented and turned to God for deliverance. He says, “I have everything. I have Jesus.”

We the People of Rockwall County want a Representative – Get the picture?

we want a representative - get the picture

What the verb ‘represent’ means.

“to stand or act in place of, as an agent or substitute, or on behalf of.”

My TEA Party friends to the south successfully got their representative elected. But, now they lost him this election cycle because they gave themselves over to the Empower Texans agenda that interferes in local elections. Yes, elections for state representatives are local elections. In our case, we the people of Rockwall County know whom we want to represent us.

A member of the Texas House of Representatives was in Rockwall campaigning against us. He ardently promotes the Frisco fellow. Why? Because the Frisco fellow is the favorite of Empower Texans.

So it was this out-of-district representative and I discussed the matter of representation. Basically, his understanding of the above-defined word is he will do what he thinks best for his constituents (as in father knows best).

My attempt to convey the reason we choose Rockwall County native Justin A. Holland over the Frisco fellow is simply this: Justin will REPRESENT us in Austin, not a special interest group. You who attended the candidate forum at Rockwall High School will remember his pledge to vote the will of the people over his own interests.

ELECTION DAY is Tuesday, May 24. Polls will be open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Our voting strength is 54,433. To not vote for our Rockwall candidate is, by default, a vote for the out of town candidate. Getting out the vote is our key to victory. At church, in the marketplace, or while walking the neighborhood, encourage your friends to vote for Justin Holland on Election Day.

Frisky Frisco HD-33 Candidate Streaeaeaeaeaches the Truth

Heard on the radio this morning: John Keating says Justin Holland raised City of Heath taxes 24%.

Justin-Holland-heath-city-council

What are the facts?

City of Heath Ad Valorem Tax Rate: $0.42/$100 valuation
Official source: http://ow.ly/H1gX300kqmU

City of Frisco Ad Valorem Tax Rate: $0.46/$100 valuation
Official source: http://ow.ly/GXId300kqwt

Justin A. Holland is a full-time family man, full-time businessman and full-time Heath city councilman.

How does John Keating compare?

John Keating is an ABSENTEE Frisco city councilman.

In summary, yes, the Heath City Council raised taxes. However, John Keating and his Frisco City Council have raised taxes numerous times AND Frisco city property taxes are HIGHER than Heath city property taxes.

Bottom line: Keating is a hypocrite on property taxes. How can you trust him to help hold down property taxes? The answer is obvious: John Keating is not trustworthy in the matter of property taxes. As with ever so many politicians, Keating will say whatever it takes to capture your heart and your vote.

Early voting is underway now. Election day is next Tuesday.

Let’s elect a true representative, a businessman who has “skin in the game” with respect to property taxes.

Thank you for standing with your Rockwall neighbors.
