The Enemy Within: Atheistic in Character, Ruthless in Purpose

Atheism in America

Conflicts are not a new phenomenon in America. They were active in, and between, the early British colonies that became our first thirteen states. In general, rivalries were along the lines of doctrinal differences between Protestant denominations and Catholic-vs-Protestant practices. However, the common point of agreement was the divinity of Jesus Christ and the redemption of mankind by grace through faith in the omnipotent God.

President-Dwight-D-Eisenhower

We face a hostile ideology global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose, and insidious in method. Unhappily the danger it poses promises to be of indefinite duration. To meet it successfully, there is called for, not so much the emotional and transitory sacrifices of crisis, but rather those which enable us to carry forward steadily, surely, and without complaint the burdens of a prolonged and complex struggle – with liberty the stake.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Address, January 17, 1961

Although the majority of early colonialists were Christian in profession and practice, there were atheists in the population. Thomas Paine, one of our Founding Fathers, contributed to uniting our forbears in rebellion against Great Britain through the publication of pamphlets like the famous Common Sense that advocated independence.

Full-time, militant atheistic organizations like the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, the ACLU, the American Atheists, and the Communist Party USA strive to blot out the free exercise of religion clause of the First Amendment.

The irony? Atheism is a religion by definition: a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects.

There are two atheistic camps: the avowed atheists, like those listed above, and the practical atheists, the people who claim to be Christian while living lives wholly contrary to the tenets of God’s Word, the Holy Scriptures.

Atheism and Christianity at the Cross-Road

Over my seven decades of life on this planet, I have witnessed atheism – avowed and practical – throughout American society, but atheists now coalesce as socialists and Democrats.

The hallmark of atheists is a pro-death stance that manifests in the promotion of unlimited murder of children in the womb along with the spirit of anti-Christ and a penchant for an all-powerful government.

Revival In America

God mercifully raises up Christian leaders like Mike Pence, Donald Trump, Nikki Haley, Greg Abbott, and Ted Cruz to stand against atheism and to stand for righteousness.

At this time, President Donald Trump draws the ire of a broad spectrum of atheists, including Jorge Ramos, Rosie O’Donnell, and Richard Dawkins. Add to these, the principal leaders of the Democratic Party.

What should be our response, speaking on behalf of fellow Christians? Should we devote our time to name-calling, public criticism of atheists, or perhaps outlaw atheism?

Norma McCorvey was the infamous Jane Roe of the Rov-v-Wade case in which a liberal Supreme Court created new ‘rights’ out of thin air, notably the right of a woman to kill her child in the womb.

Although Norma never had the abortion, she labored alongside the pro-abortionwon-by-love-norma-mccorvey movement until her encounter with a gentleman named Flip Benham. You can read her story in a book she wrote, titled: Won By Love, available from Amazon.com.

Flip Benham labored for many years in the pro-life movement. In her book, Norma reveals her interactions with Flip and he never condemned her nor berated her, but simply loved her.

It was love that won the soul of Norma McCorvey. Norma died at age 69 and is now in the presence of our Lord.

Is atheism the enemy? Well, not exactly. Satan, the Devil, Lucifer, has forever been the enemy that kills, steals and destroys. From the beginning of recorded history, he has sought to make himself lord of the universe. His demonic spirits have moved into the hearts and minds of millions of Americans, deceiving them by leading them to believe lies are truth and to kill unwanted children is good for mother earth.

For now, I believe we have a reprieve from Heaven and our role among nations is the protector of Israel, the apple of God’s eye. As evidenced by the recent UN vote, America and Israel stand against all the nations of the world.

The charitable track record of the USA is one of generosity and kindness. We do not treat our enemies as they treat us. I point to post-WW2 Japan as a prime example. Another example is our country’s response to the devastating 2004 earthquake that devastated the Banda Aceh province of Indonesia.

Satan has caused a lot of damage and he continues through the agency of liberal universities that teach how terrible a country America is. Students are taught false history and fed godless dogmas to the point almost half of young Americans prefer socialism, fascism, and communism over our hard-won freedoms and free-market economics.

All is not lost. “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.’”

A lot of angry things are said during political campaigns and I am not guiltless in this matter. But, I purpose to love my enemies, to do good to them, and to pray for those who come against me. I choose to follow Flip Benham’s example.

We truly have an enemy within our borders that is atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose. That said, we also have spiritual weapons to assure our side wins.

In this season, we celebrate the virgin birth of Jesus. Shortly, we will commemorate his crucifixion and resurrection. Be ever mindful of the empty tomb.

AG Paxton: Judge Lee Yeakel’s ruling against SB8 is faulty on the basis of existing federal law

Honorable Ken Paxton
Office of the Attorney Generalseal of the great state of texas
300 W. 15th Street
Austin, TX 78711-2548

Subject: Yeakel ruling on SB8

General Paxton,

U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel’s Ruling Texas Senate Bill 8 is in gross error, according to the Supreme Law of the Land.

The State’s legitimate concern with the preservation of the life of the fetus is an interest having its primary application once the fetus is capable of living outside the womb. – IX. CONCLUSION

Judge Yeakel incorrectly interprets Roe v. Wade. He concluded there is a woman’s right to kill her baby in the womb. No such right was created in 1973. The Supreme Court forged a right to privacy that is inherently unconstitutional because it applies only to women.

Fact: The U.S. Constitution does not explicitly provide a right to privacy. Over the years, federal courts have cobbled together bits and pieces of the Bill of Rights along with unconstitutional judicial activism to create law out of thin air.

Fact: The U.S. Congress has never created a law to either (a) give a woman a right to an abortion or to (b)  confer a special right exclusively for women.

Article VI of the Constitution defines the supreme Law of the Land.

“This Constitution…the Laws of the United States…and all Treaties…shall be the supreme Law of the Land.. and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby…”

Fact: The Supreme Law of the Land supersedes any and all Supreme Court opinions contrary to the Laws of the United States.

While the above arguments may not serve to protect unborn Texans, the following does.

18 US CODE 1841 – PROTECTION OF UNBORN CHILDREN – CHAPTER 90A

(a)(1) Whoever engages in conduct that violates
any of the provisions of law listed in sub-
section (b) and thereby causes the death of, or
bodily injury (as defined in section 1365) to, a
child, who is in utero at the time the conduct
takes place, is guilty of a separate offense under
this section.

(2)(A) Except as otherwise provided in this
paragraph, the punishment for that separate offense
is the same as the punishment provided
under Federal law for that conduct had that injury
or death occurred to the unborn child’s
mother

(d) As used in this section, the term “unborn child” means a child in utero, and the term “child in utero” or “child, who is in utero” means a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.

The above citations of law are found in the Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (short title).

I encourage you to draw on existing federal law that defines the unborn child as “child in utero”.

The State of Texas was at the forefront of the legal battles to defend the Right to Life in 1973 and is again at the forefront of defending the natural Right to Life.

Speaker Joe Straus: You claim to be Republican, but your actions suggest otherwise

republican majority

Mr. Speaker, I read the duties of the Speaker of the House from your own website. Nowhere on that list of duties do I see a duty to autocratically obstruct the will of the people, as expressed by the majority seating before you.

I know you as a gentleman. Will you remain a gentleman in the special session?

If you believe Governor Greg Abbott’s agenda unpopular, bring all the items to the floor for a vote to prove your point.

Powers & Duties

The speaker is the presiding officer of the house of representatives. The Texas Constitution requires the house of representatives, each time a new legislature convenes, to choose one of its own members to serve as speaker.

As presiding officer, the speaker maintains order during floor debate, recognizing legislators who wish to speak and ruling on procedural matters. The constitution also requires the speaker to sign all bills and joint resolutions passed by the legislature. As a member of the house of representatives, the speaker may vote on all questions before the house.

The other duties and responsibilities of the speaker are determined by the members of the house in the House Rules of Procedure, which are adopted by a majority vote of the members at the beginning of each regular session of the legislature. The members give the speaker the authority to appoint the membership of each standing committee, subject to rules on seniority, and to designate the chair and vice chair for each committee. Under the rules, the speaker is responsible for referring all proposed legislation to committee, subject to the committee jurisdictions set forth in the rules. The rules also allow the speaker to appoint conference committees, to create select committees, and to direct committees to conduct interim studies when the legislature is not in session.

Ignorance is NOT bliss; ignorance of economics is perilous to your person and to your soul

What time do you invest in your knowledge about economics?John Adams
 
What is money? Is it not proof you have served God’s other children?
 
In the formative years of our Republic, while organized as a confederacy, before ratification of the Constitution, representatives of the thirteen states unsuccessfully quibbled over this or that trade policy.
 
At the Constitutional convention of 1787, founding father John Adams pointed to the central issue: widespread ignorance of economics fundamentals, saying, “All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise not from defects in the Constitution or Confederation, not from a want of honor or virtue so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.”
 
Benjamin Franklin observed, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
 
The common American ignores economics until it bites him where the sun doesn’t shine. And when he or she feels the bite, anger erupts.  Anger, when properly directed is good. God invented anger to motivate us in the right direction.
 
A great chasm of ignorance of economics divides liberals and conservatives. The first subscribes to Marxist socialism; the other (generally) to principles of free-market capitalism.
 
How are the two thoughts different? Socialism is an economic theory. Why a theory? It shall forever remain an economic theory BECAUSE IT HAS NEVER AND CAN NEVER BE PROVEN.
 
Capitalism, by contrast, is a natural system of economics. It is the exchange of goods and services among a free people. By natural, I mean this is God’s idea of economics. Examples?
 
Proverbs 20:10 “False weights and unequal measures — the Lord detests double standards of every kind.”
 
1 Thessalonians 5:22 “Stay away from every kind of evil.”
 
Leviticus 25:14 “When you make an agreement with your neighbor to buy or sell property, you must not take advantage of each other.”

What’s Left For Democrat Die Hards?

What best describes the 2017 Democratic Party?

Clue Number 1


The Daily Caller’s Phillip Stuckey was undercover with protesters that stormed The Heritage Foundation this morning (25 April 2017).

The above story reveals how Democrat protesters are paid actors and they do not represent the citizens, but are tools of the corrupt leaders who control all things Democrat.

Clue Number 2

The Washington Times - Abortion question opens rift among democrats over direction of party.png
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said there is an “enormous disconnect” between rank-and-file Democrats — one-quarter to one-third of whom identify as pro-life — and party leadership, to whom abortion is sacrosanct.

Read more of this story from the Washington Times: http://bit.ly/2oHZjvN

Clue Number 3

The Democratic Party prefers a minority of persons experiencing GID – gender identity disorder – over the constitutional rights of America’s women and children.

In Summary

The Democratic Party is the party of atheist, bigots, racists, death, and anarchists. Let’s thrown a deep and abiding relationship with Marxists-socialists.

The clearest demarcation between hardcore Democrats and the rest of us is the official militant pro-death, pro-abortion plank in the Democrat party platform.

I was a Democrat who was born and raised in south Texas where everyone was a Democrat. I can’t recall even one person who would admit to being a Republican. Most of us were Harry Truman Democrats.

Jimmy Carter’s election was the turning point for me. I campaigned for him and I voted for him, but four years later I voted in the Republican primary for Ronald Reagan and a slate of Republican candidates.

What will the pro-life Democrats do now?

State Sen. Bob Hall: Senate Bill 1356, A Real Solution to “Texting While Driving”

The following is from an email from Texas SD-2 Senator Bob Hall. I fully agree with SB 1356. Please read his message and respond with your input. Pilots in command and drivers behind the wheel bear responsibility for harm to fellow travelers, whether airborne or zipping down a public thoroughfare. – John White, Rockwall, Texas

Senate Bill 1356, A Real Solution to “Texting While Driving”

The Texas House has passed and the Senate has considered in committee legislation that would create a misdemeanor offense of using a handheld device to read, write, or send a text-based communication while operating a moving vehicle that is not stopped. Regrettably, the proposed solution will actually increase vehicle accidents.

Distracted driving that results in a vehicle accident (18 percent of all accidents) is a serious problem that needs a serious solution. But research does not support the banning of hand-held electronic devices to solve this issue. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (a premier organization on the issue) has multiple studies that show no decrease in accidents when cell phone bans were implemented. In fact, in many instances, accidents actually increased after the ban. Also, the data shows that prohibiting the use of cell phones has done little to stop the use of cell phones while driving. Banning is not the answer.

Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2013 show distracted driving accounted for 10 percent of all fatal crashes. Of that 10 percent of accidents, only 14 percent of crashes involved the use of a cell phone. In other words, 86 percent of fatal “distracted driving” accidents were caused by activity other than cell phones which was only 1.5 percent of all accidents.

  • “Distracted driving” is more serious than just cell phone use.
  • Distracted driving includes all distractions.
  • Texting bans do not reduce accidents.
  • 2013 Data:
    • Total injured – 2,213,000 (100 percent)
    • Distracted driving – 424,000 (18 percent)
    • Cell phone use – 34,000 (1.5 percent)

Senate Bill 1356 would provide that any person causing a collision from the operation of a moving motor vehicle commits an offense if the person is engaged in an activity that is not related to the operation of the motor vehicle and interferes with the driver’s ability to pay attention to the road. An offense would be a Class C misdemeanor for minimal damage, or a state jail felony if the collision results in serious bodily injury or death.

The bill would prohibit local authorities from regulating or prohibiting distracted driving, ending the patchwork of regulation we currently have in place. Existing statutes prohibiting the cell phone use by minor drivers and cell phone use in school zones would not be affected.

If we want to improve vehicle safety and reduce the problem of distracted driving, we must address the whole distracted driving issue, not just a fraction of it. An accident caused by a distraction other than cell phone use is no less serious than the one caused by an individual on their cell phone. And, if the statistics are correct, it is much more likely to occur.

That is why I have filed Senate Bill 1356 which would address the reduction of distracted driving accidents by focusing on the punishment of the consequences, rather than the banning of any specific activity. Driving is a serious responsibility and failure to recognize that should be treated seriously.

If you have input on this item, please provide them to my Legislative Director, Kathi Seay.  She can be reached by email at Kathi.Seay@senate.texas.gov or by phone at 512.463.0102.

As always, I appreciate the opportunity to represent you in the Texas Senate.

Sincerely,

Senator Bob Hall

ACLU continues its assault on commonsense legislation crafted to protect vulnerable women and children

In an email today, the ACLU says, “North Carolina should truly repeal its unjust HB2 law that permits discrimination against LGBT people — and we’re calling on the NCAA to refuse to allow championship games to take place in NC until that happens.”

What’s wrong with the above ACLU complaint? Let’s do a little reality check.

ACLU and the LGBTQ-Whatever Confusion

While the left’s popular euphemism for homosexuality is the acronym LGBTQ, homosexuality remains a same-sex attraction.

Here’s the fun part. Are you ready, ACLU?

Men who are afflicted with same-sex attraction have no interest in the invasion of women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Homosexual men prefer men. Is this too deep for you? I’ll pull back and elaborate somewhat.

Women with same-sex attraction are not interested in men. Like homosexual men, they have no interest in the invasion of men’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Does this help?

The North Carolina HB2, like a similar bill before the Texas Legislature, was crafted to protect vulnerable women and children from sexual predators, guys who wish to walk into women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers with impunity. These heterosexual males are perverts and creeps who are generally unwelcome in the aforesaid facilities reserved for women and young children.

I know, I know. I’ve written some facts about life that challenge your baseless complaints, but you will eventually gain understanding (aka common sense) if you re-read the above several times, clicking your heels together while repeatedly saying, “I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom.”
