Fox News Poll: 1-point margin in Iowa, Kansas and North Carolina Senate races

“It all comes down to turnout.”

That’s one of the biggest clichés in politics. It’s also true in one-point races. Welcome to Iowa, Kansas and North Carolina.  ……

There’s much more to read at the link. 

It it just comes down to “turn out” then Repubs win.  No one can say the Dim base is energized. They’re not.  OTOH, the Repub base is divided.

Happy Halloween!!!

No, I’m not one who recoils at the notion of a day to scare people.  While Halloween has taken to a pagan or Satanist meaning today, there is a history as to why.  I won’t write about it, rather, I would ask the readers to chime in on their thoughts on the Halloween event. 

In the mean time, enjoy some music ……

Gems 2014 — October 31 Scripture Selection: 2 Timothy 3

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

October 31 Scripture Selection: 2 Timothy 3

Food for Thought: 2 Tim. 3:15, 16

Are we using the Scriptures in every way that they were intended? If not, we may need to make some changes in the manner in which we read them and apply them to our lives. As we read the Word with the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the knowledge of the love of God, then we are in position to receive everything the Word offers us through this continuous, deep, intimate conversation with the Master.

Of course, the Word of God is to teach us doctrine, what to believe. In case there be some who think they already have achieved that, they need to think again. Daily exposure to the Word reminds us and refines our understanding of doctrine. This is a life-long glorious, fascinating process (see I Tim. 4:13, 16).

The Word is also for reproof, to rebuke us when we are in error. Because this requires humility to receive, this is hard to take for many people, so they simply avoid receiving the reproof and move on to more pleasant scriptures. But reproof is to our advantage, if we will allow the Word to have its full function in us. If we haven’t felt reproof lately, either we have already matured, or we are ignoring this element of the Word (See Ps. 141:5; 119:21).

Similarly, the Word of God is for correction. It calls our attention to a wrong and steers us in the right direction. Stubborn, stiff-necked people miss out on this blessing. Proverbs 13:18 warns, “Poverty and shame will come to him who disdains correction, But he who regards a rebuke will be honored.” (See also Prov. 12:1).

Finally, we receive instruction in righteousness through the Scriptures. Since Jesus Himself advises in Matthew 6:33 that we seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Mat. 6:33), and since the Kingdom of God is made up of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost (Rom. 14:17), then it would seem that receiving instruction on the subject should be a priority for us.

As we embrace the Holy Scriptures with an open heart, available to the Holy Spirit to do the work in us according to that which is written, then we are assured the the Word will make us “complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (vs. 17).” However, if we do not hold the Word in high regard as the most important element in our lives, then something will always be missing, and we will be incomplete. As such a high price was paid for us to have the Word in our hands and in our heart, we should give it first place over everything else in our lives. We have so much to gain in doing so.

Breaking!!!!! Climate Disruption Demonstrated In Crop Productivity!!!!!!!

We’re told global warming causes climate disruption which leads to a starving planet because of storms and floods, and droughts, and other Biblical proportion bad stuff.  Of course, none of this really exists, except in the minds of the lunatics.  We show where there’s no measurable occurrence of  increasing floods and hurricanes and droughts, but, they persist. 

In the meanwhile, humanity, in spite of the efforts of the misanthropist climate crazies, continues to do what they’ve always done, progress!

So, much of the imaginary damage of global warming happened most recently.  Well, here’s the damage.

image

In all cases, our productivity has increased, and dramatically so.  How is this possible if we’re seeing an increase in droughts, floods, hurricanes, frogs, and whatnot?  Simply put, it isn’t possible. 

While there may be an intrepid wanderer pop by who would say something silly, like “that’s not total production”, or something which implies less ground is being used, thus less total crops produced, or something stupid like “but, that doesn’t keep up with the population increases”, let me assure the readers, total per capita crop production has increased dramatically. 

From a post I did last year …….

LOL!!!!! Senator Landrieu Commits Political Suicide!!!! Calls Voters Of Louisiana Racists!!!!

So, whiter than white Senator Landrieu had this to say …..

Landrieu on Obama: South Not Always ‘Friendliest Place for African-Americans’

Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu said Thursday that the issue of race is a major reason that President Barack Obama has struggled politically in Southern states.

“I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu told NBC News in an interview. “It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”

Noting that the South is “more of a conservative place,” she added that women have also faced challenges in “presenting ourselves.”

The comment prompted a fiery response from Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who called it “remarkably divisive.”

“She appears to be living in a different century,” he said in a statement. “Implied in her comments is the clear suggestion that President Obama and his policies are unpopular in Louisiana because of his ethnicity. That is a major insult by Senator Landrieu to the people of Louisiana and I flatly reject it.”…..

There’s just a bit more to read at the link.

Here’s Landrieu.

Shock News!!!! For GITMO Residents Fighting With ISIS!!!!

image 

Report: Dozens of Former Gitmo Detainees Now Fighting With ISIS

Of course they are. The Guantanamo recidivism problem has been very real for years at this point, with at least one former Gitmo guest reportedly participating in the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks.  We also know that of the ‘Taliban Five‘ the Obama White House horse-traded for an alleged deserter, at least one has already made his intentions to rejoin the jihad explicitly clear.  Some of the detainees released over the last two administrations genuinely posed little threat, and had been caught up at the wrong place at the wrong time.  Many others, however, were dangerous Islamist radicals.  It stands to reason, then, that a number of them would inevitably link up with the ISIS death squads.  As you read this, keep in mind that these figuresare limited to ISIS’ Syrian fighting force alone:

As many as 20 to 30 former Guantanamo Bay detainees — some of whom were released within the last three years — are suspected by intelligence and Defense officials of having joined forces with the Islamic State and other militant groups inside Syria, Fox News has learned. The development has cemented fears that the U.S. military would once again encounter militants taken off the battlefield. The intelligence offers a mixed picture, and officials say the figures are not exact. But they are certain at least some of the released detainees are fighting with the Islamic State, or ISIS, on the ground inside Syria. Others are believed to be supporting Al Qaeda or the affiliated al-Nusra Front in Syria. A number of former detainees also have chosen to help these groups from outside the country, financing operations and supporting their propaganda campaigns…Of the 620 detainees released from Guantanamo Bay, 180 have returned or are suspected to have returned to the battlefield.

I’m so old I can remember when our government used to pretend the American people were a priority.

Wolf Continues To Imperil The Republic —– Issues A Backhanded Endorsement Of Roberts —– Steals Suyts Talking Points!!!!!

Just look at this jackass’s FB page …… and what it still contains …..

image

Hey, dumbass!!!!  You’re not running for Senate, anymore!!!!  That died months ago!!!!

So, Wolf has now decided to “endorse” Pat Roberts.  It’s the worse endorsement I’ve ever seen.  My bold.

My fellow patriots, in regards to the United States Senate race in Kansas…
It is no secret that President Barack Obama and Democrats like Senator Harry Reid and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi are destroying the American Dream by crushing individual liberties under the oppressive weight of their unprecedented and unconstitutional government expansion. It is also no secret that too many Republicans, including even some who call themselves conservatives, are seduced by or terrified of the Democrats and have become their enablers.
In this election, you have fought valiantly and honorably for our republic. While so many politicians descend into personal attacks, you instead joined a campaign committed against all odds to offering bold, positive solutions to America’s greatest challenges. Be proud of your efforts and now brace yourself for a greater challenge still.
America desperately needs solid constitutional conservatives in the United States Senate who will stand by the courage of their conviction, who will fearlessly stand up to Barack Obama and Harry Reid, who will offer positive solutions to America’s challenges and who can effectively communicate their ideas against a veritable storm of opposition in Washington. Whatever your opinion of Pat Roberts, his re-election to the United States Senate may be the deciding factor that dethrones Harry Reid and elevates solid constitutional conservatives like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul into positions of influence to save America from Barack Obama and so I urge you, I urge all Kansans, to set aside our differences and vote Republican in this critical Senate race on November 4th.
Be assured that if Pat Roberts is to be re-elected, I will do everything in my power to hold his feet to the fire. And be assured that the fullness of the duplicity, dishonesty and abuse of power that has marked this election will be exposed. I have refused to be intimidated by their threats or seduced by their bribes and I won’t start now. We have far more resources at our disposal today than when we began this movement and I am more energized than ever to see to it that Kansans have alternatives to failed leadership. I’m committed to reestablishing the Kansas GOP as the party of Reagan, the party of freedom and prosperity. And I’m determined to unleash an era where we secure the blessings of liberty so that all Kansans and all Americans can achieve their own American Dream
Join me in this critical fight for liberty! Sign up on our email list at miltonwolf.com and find me Twitter at @MiltonWolfMD. The Wolf Pack is ready to roar!

Hey, dumbass!!!!!  Wolves don’t “roar”!!!  They howl and yap!

Essentially, Wolf told his people to stay home.  But, he did add that if Roberts gets in the likes of Cruz, Lee, and Paul would have a larger voice. 

Now, where have I read that before?

If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”  The choice is clear, we can have two more years of Harry Reid and Zero, or we can have a Senate which at least lends a voice to the likes of Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and many others.  In my view, there’s no comparison.  Others may prefer Reid to these people.  Pretending they’re all the same isn’t just laziness and stupidity, it’s intellectual laziness which is worse than being either lazy or stupid.

Well, imitation is the best form of flattery, but, really?

If you scroll down on his FB page, you can see the non-endorsement/endorsement.  More and more, I’m convinced Wolf is a scumbag.

How Our Education System Uses Your Money …….. By Teaching Islam

image

This story seems to have the wrong focus, or attempt to create a diversion. 

Former Marine banned from daughter’s school after dispute over Islam lesson

A former Marine who served in Iraq says he’s been banned from his daughter’s Maryland high school after a heated argument over a lesson on Islam.

Kevin Wood told MyFoxDC.com that he went to La Plata High School in La Plata, a town about 30 miles southeast of Washington, and challenged a history assignment requiring students to list the benefits of Islam. He said the meeting with the vice principal got heated; the school said he made a threat and banned the Iraq veteran from school property.

“[Wood] was threatening to cause a disruption or possible disruption at the school,” a district spokesperson said.

Wood did not deny getting worked up over the issue, but said he was standing up for the Constitution and is against any religion being taught at the public school.

“I have witnesses that have said I did not threaten anybody,” he told the station. “I don’t force my religious views on them, so don’t force your religious views on me.”

The school is allowing his eleventh-grade daughter to spend the class time in the school’s library, but defended its assignment and said it is teaching world history, not religion.

Wood’s wife, Melissa, wondered how teaching about one religion is considered a history lesson while teaching about Christianity would be viewed diffrerently.

“We cannot discuss our Ten Commandments in school but they can discuss Islam’s Five Pillars?”

The three-page assignment asked questions including, “How did Muslim conquerors treat those they conquered?”

A homework assignment obtained by MyFoxDC.com showed the correct answer was, “With tolerance, kindness and respect.”

Certainly, that the father was banned from the school is a worthy story, but, I wouldn’t think it to be the focus of this story!

The story did touch on some more important issues, but, didn’t highlight it. 

Melissa is correct.  Try and teach the benefits of Christianity in an historical context and watch the atheists come out of the woodwork.  I wonder where they’re at on this?  Clearly, the application of the SCOTUS “Separation” edict is violated here.  Which is unfortunate, because I believe if one is to properly teach history, one must discuss Christianity and Islam, as well as Judaism, because, one can’t understand Christianity without discussing Judaism.  However, propaganda, such as seems obvious in this case, should never be tolerated. 

Q:  “How did Muslim conquerors treat those they conquered?”

A:  “With tolerance, kindness and respect.”

That’s an eleventh grade history test question?????  It’s sophist, and plainly in error.  To be sure, there were some Muslim warriors who did treat those who they conquered with “tolerance, kindness and respect”.  But, it certainly wasn’t/isn’t universally true.  Indeed, the long list of atrocities committed by Muslims started with the first Muslims and has continued unfettered ever since. 

How ironic is it that in the US, many history lessons attack American heritage because they once had legalized slavery, but, praises a religion which actively participates in such a practice?

People, this nation needs to purge our education system of the anti-American POSs who are teaching indoctrinating our children.  And we need to do it now.  I can’t stress the urgency enough.

Gems 2014 — October 30 Scripture Selection: 2 Timothy 2

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

October 30 Scripture Selection: 2 Timothy 2

Food for Thought: 2 Tim. 2:14-17, 23-26

Well, there is hope for everyone who is away from the Truth (see vs. 26)! The Word tells us exactly what to do to help free them from the snare of the devil and how to avoid falling victim to the deceptive words ourselves.

In addition to praying for them, we are told “not to strive about words to no profit (vs. 14, 23 and Titus 3:9).” Stay out of fleshly disputes that go no where. You can tell when you are “in the flesh” by checking your level of aggravation and frustration. If you are not in the Spirit, then don’t bother. It will be to no avail and could actually make matters worse. In any conversation concerning the true faith in Jesus Christ and the Body, the Word tells us to discuss it with gentleness, patience, and humility, and be able to teach (not argue) the truth to them (vs. 24, 25).

In order to be able to do that and to discern the false arguments that the other may present and “shun profane and idle babblings,” it is necessary to prepare ourselves well in the Word of God. That puts us in a position to unashamedly present the truth (vs. 15, 16). It’s one thing to know the truth, and quite another to be able to support your knowledge with the Word for the benefit of the one who has been led astray. You must know why you believe what you believe.

The very good news is that there are no lost causes. Verses 25 and 26 reveal that there is hope for them to “come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.” And we are the ones to help bring to pass their rescue. I Corinthians 1:26-29 lets us know that we don’t have to be eloquent or sophisticated to play a part in it: “For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.” The Word of God is plenty wise enough to get the job done through us.
