How Will Church Respond To This Day That Will Live In Infamy?

By Scott Ryan Anderson

I remember almost fourteen years ago after the nation was attacked on September 11, 2001, churches around the country were fully alert to the significance of what had taken place. The mood was somber and people in this country were awakened at least for a brief time.

From a spiritual standpoint, what has been perpetrated today by the United States Supreme Court against this nation is more catastrophic than what was inflicted by the terrorists on September 11. The propaganda is circulating throughout the media about how “wonderful” the Supreme Court supposedly “legalizing” homo-sexual marriage is to this country.

Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that supposedly legalized same sex marriage in the United States spoke to Katie Couric outside the Supreme Court saying “It was an incredible experience to hear a Supreme Court justice talk about how my marriage, my relationship, how John and I matter. How we deserve respect and dignity and I started to feel a lot more like a full, equal American at that moment.” (The case arose because Obergefell was denied the supposed “right” to be mentioned on the death certificate of his “husband” who died in 2013 because their home state of Ohio does not recognize homosexual marriage.)

First of all, this contention that he was treated with inequality is specious. The fact is that before the recent immoral avalanche, NO American had the right to “marry” another person of the same sex, just as no American has the right to wed multiple individuals, children or animals for that matter – because it is immoral. That is not inequality as there are actions that none of us have the legal right to commit. The laws applied to every American.

These rogue judges in black robes may say what they want but it isn’t right and it isn’t legal. Second, the court does not have the right to “legalize” anything under the constitution of the United States.

Here’s a thought for those who still believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, ostensibly the Christian Church and Jews who take their God’s ordinances seriously. The federal court giving national approbation to a sin that has without fail brought obliteration, sack and plunder upon every civilization in world history that has embraced it should bring us to our knees.

“Perhaps the definitive work on the rise and fall of civilization was written back in the thirties by an Oxford anthropologist. In Sex and Culture, a study of 86 human civilizations ranging from Rome to Tahiti, J.D. Unwin found that a society’s destiny is tied inseparably to the limits it imposes on sexual expression. The highest levels of social development are reached only by cultures that practice what Unwin called “absolute monogamy,” in which marriage is limited to one man and one woman, sexual outside marriage is not tolerated, and divorce is prohibited…” Read more of Gay ‘Marriage,’ Distant Consequences.

The Sunday following June 26, 2015 should be one of national mourning as we saw in the book of Nehemiah, with Ezra’s prayer in Chapter 9 concluding with an acknowledgement of Israel’s sins. What is taking place is just the beginning of a direct war declaration against the nuclear family and the church.   What will assuredly follow is the kind of attack that the homosexual activists have launched against bakers and photographers and other businesses that refused to give commendation and participate in their “wedding” ceremonies.   Those test cases were just warm-ups for the onslaught to follow.

The day is coming America, very quickly, in which churches and Pastors are going to face the ultimatum to abandon the God they profess by performing these wedding ceremonies and also to cease what Caesar deems the “hate crime” of speaking out against homosexual behavior.

This Sunday should be a sobering Sunday in which most planned sermons should be put on the back-burner as they were following the attacks on 9-11-2001. I have no intention of minimizing the atrocity of the terror attacks that took place in the physical realm. The fact is that the terrorists had not the capacity to destroy this once mighty country. However, what just took place at the hands of the “Supreme” Court will have the capacity to bring this nation to ruin as they shake their fist at the God who made this country prosper for almost 240 years.

We look back and ask rhetorically “where was the church when a small atheist minority took God out of the public square in the 1960s?” We ask “where was the church after Roe vs. Wade?” This is our final chance to stand up and be counted after this day that will live in infamy. How will the church respond this Sunday? Many with much to lose financially will elect to become part of the leftist’s state churches. At the rate the government is moving, the true and faithful American church will be forced underground as much of the church has long been throughout the globe under the threat of persecution and martyrdom.

AMERICA CHOOSES DIRECTION

William E. Been

CURRENT SITUATION

On November 4, 2014, American voters will go to the polls and either choose to pursue a different direction or confirm the policies that have dominated during the Obama Administration. While this is an opportunity for those who believe that our country is going in the wrong direction, the same divisiveness within the right-of-center voters that existed prior to the 2012 disaster is still prevalent.

While books have been written citing the various causes for the 2012 GOP failure, the reality is that there were not enough right-of center voters that understood the need to seek a different direction. Various analyses show that 4-8 million GOP voters stayed home in addition to the Libertarian voters.

Effectively, these citizens chose another four years of Barack Obama and Democrat Party control of Washington. Accentuating this failure was the success the Democrat Party had in Congress where the GOP lost seats in the House and the Senate remained in the control of Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, future demographics and polls of current voters strongly indicate that America is very close to being governed by a permanent Democrat Party majority. It is this belief that is prompting me to write this article with the hope that there are still enough Americans left who understand the dire consequences of the current transformational direction if allowed to continue without meaningful opposition.

My first article addressed how we got to where we are from a political perspective. My second article addressed the need to understand “How” current Obama Administration policies are creating multiple scandals while demeaning our Judeo-Christian heritage. My third article addressed the corruption of the Democrat Party that is leading the Progressive transformation of America.

This article will address what is perhaps the last opportunity to accomplish meaningful restoration of America in accordance with the Constitution and the intent of the Founding Fathers including the belief in a Higher Authority.

POLITICAL KNOWLEDGE

One of the most alarming elements that has become apparent is the lack of understanding of how the legislative branch of our government is constructed and how it is designed to operate. In the current situation, it still appears that a great percentage of the right-of-center voters do not understand the role of the Senate in terms of passing meaningful legislation.

There is a good reason why Barack Obama has never vetoed any of the legislative actions initiated by the House of Representatives. Not one piece of legislation that supports Republican principles has reached the president for a very simple reason–the Majority in the Senate belongs to the Democrats.

President Obama consistently blames congress to the point that he has declared that he is being forced to work around congress because of the obstructionist Republican House. Meanwhile, the Democrat Senate refuses to even debate House approved bills that fail the litmus test of Harry Reid and the Democrat majority.

The media sings in tune with Obama while conservative media personalities provide validation to the Democrat position by constantly and repetitively blaming John Boehner and the Republican House for not getting anything done.

The reality of the current capabilities of the United States congress is that no legislation will be passed, come out of committee, or be debated in the Senate unless it meets the agenda of Barack Obama and the National Progressive Democrat Party. As long as the Democrats have a simple majority in the Senate, the only impact the Republican House can have is to block Democrat legislation and to shut down the government through ill-conceived defunding efforts.

If readers know anyone who believes otherwise, then please educate them. (Also, recall that Boehner and the House gave the Senate a bill defunding Obamacare during the recent budget crisis and the Senate would not even allow it to come out of committee for debate, let alone a floor vote.)

RIGHT OF CENTER UNITY OR LACK THEREOF

Very simply, if the Republicans do not take the Senate and maintain the House, it will be strictly because the right-of-center voters did not go to the polls.

While a large contingent of right-of-center voters continue to play “the Republicans are just as bad as the Democrats” game, some of us are appalled that we are not united in an attempt to elect Republicans in the upcoming elections to create a super majority in the Senate.

With a super majority in the Senate, the Republicans could pass any legislation without a single Democrat vote thereby forcing Barack Obama either to veto bills or throw the Constitution totally in the scrap heap while dictating through regulations and Executive Orders.

It is time to stop the RINO hunting and work to take back our country because the clock is ticking in the final minutes of the final hour in this writer’s opinion.

It will probably again be the case when we wake up after the next election that it will be evident that many right-of-center voters stayed home. Never have we had such corrupted national leadership as that residing in the Executive Branch under Barack Obama and we still refuse to unite behind the only political force that has even a remote chance of stopping and then repealing the damage done by the Progressive Democrats.

In many of my presentations given since the election of Barack Obama, the plea has been to unite behind the GOP candidates to stop the Progressive Democrat destruction of our country, its traditions, and its heritage. That this plea has fallen on deaf ears is clearly substantiated by calls for a 3rd Party, calls to support Libertarians, failure of 10-15% of Christians to even register to vote, and the constant negativism directed toward the GOP.

Another of the most aggravating and potentially damaging factors to achieving unity of purpose is the behavior of conservative opinion leaders who constantly chastise the GOP for not standing for anything.

While typing this paragraph, an email was received from the NRSC that expressed the GOP candidate’s objectives in five debates held recently—Replace Obamacare, Balance the Federal Budget, Secure Our Borders, Repeal Anti-Business Regulations, Energy Independence, and Fix Tax Code.

In addition, referencing the GOP Platform prepared in 2012, the objectives are stated clearly including Jobs Creation, Economic Growth, Business Tax Policy, Oppose Common Core, Oppose Agenda 21, and 62 pages more that encompass the scope of meaningful government.

It is time to put the many litmus tests being used to criticize and even destroy potential candidacies and unite behind the clearly stated principles and objectives that are extensively documented by the Republican Party. Failure to do so will only assure the final steps required to complete the Progressive Transformation of America.

We have awakened to the magnitude of the problem that we face, now let us awaken to recognize that the only pathway to stop and then reverse the Progressive Movement runs through the Republican Party.

DEMOCRAT PARTY CORRUPTION

By William E. Been

In my previous article “America Under Siege,” I described “Why” Barack Obama either does or does not accomplish expectations consistent with those of an American President. My specific objective in writing the article was to encourage individuals, and particularly the media, to devote their efforts to interpreting daily events describing “How” the actions of Barack Obama support his stated and implied objectives.

The scandals documented in “America Under Siege,” illustrate the tactics, including his attack on Judeo-Christian beliefs, being used by Barack Obama to accomplish his transformation objectives. However, the failure to understand the role of the National Democrat Party is of even greater concern than not understanding the intent of Barack Obama.

In my book, Masters of Audacity and Deceit, the various organizations and individuals who made the election of a President Obama possible are summarized in three groupings with the most important of the three being the DEMOCRAT PARTY AND TRADITIONAL ALLIES. (The other two were George Soros/New World Order advocates and Progressives & Radicals.)

In this article “Democrat Party Corruption,” I will clearly define the Democrat Party as a tool used by various anti-American groups to support Progressive issues that have enabled the global leftist movement as well as having sponsored the election of Barack Obama.

As the critically important November, 2014, midterm elections approach, it is apparent that many Americans sense that something is seriously wrong with the direction of our country. Even Democrats appearing on FOX resort to referring to Obama’s actions as “incompetence” or simply “he did not know about the situation.”

Meanwhile, the national Democrats continue to campaign using the Alinsky methods involving “ends justifying means” which is best described as the politics of personal destruction and dishonesty.

During the last six years, the concerns and fears that were presented in my book and felt by so many patriotic Americans have become the reality of today. It is critical that we move beyond understanding “Why” and “How” and focus on the most dangerous threat.

With the Obama Administration and the National Democrat Party following the Cloward-Piven Strategy, a national state of confusion and misdirection has been established and maintained to mask their transformational objectives.

However, Chapter 14 in my book effectively removes the mask of confusion by describing the actions of the Democrat Party, its leaders, and the alliance with the Mainstream Media and Wall Street. When Bill Clinton stated “We have won the great culture war that has divided America for forty years,” he validated the role of the Democrat Party as being the ultimate threat to the American heritage that was established prior to this undeclared forty year war. Hillary Clinton also validated the role of the Democrat Party when the Center for American Progress was founded by urging participation in the “war that we’re engaged in with the other side.”

Given only the information presented above, it is painfully clear that the Democrat Party no longer operates as a political party driven by issues and honest debate. Rather, it has become a stronghold for leftist ideologues using any tactic of war or Alinsky to accomplish the Cloward-Piven objective of a permanent Democrat majority with absolute and unchallengeable powers. In this role, it has become the harbor for virtually every anti-American group and movement.

Effectively, the Democrat Party today provides a voice for these groups and movements that include, amongst others, the communists (CPUSA), socialists (DSA), Progressives (Congressional Progressive Caucus), Freedom From Religion, Radical Islamists, Terrorists, Marxists, Globalists, Open Borders, anti-Christian, and even anti-God which was so vividly displayed at the Democrat National Convention.

Defining and focusing on the most dangerous threat is critical for those Americans who desire to build upon the heritage and founding principles of our great nation. Also, it must be understood that Barack Obama is only a tool of leftist and Marxist groups including the National Democrat Party. In turn, the National Democrat Party of 2014 has become nothing more than an umbrella for these same leftists including international groups such as the United Nations, Islamists, European Socialists, and Russian Communists. All of these groups seek to destroy our national sovereignty and replace our Constitutional Government in favor of some undefined global governance.

In addition to harboring the leftist groups, the National Democrat Party is supported by and beholden to multiple wealthy individuals and special interest groups such as the Democracy Alliance, MoveOn.org, the Gates Foundation and many other Progressive PACs that work on a national level. This relationship is best personified by a statement made by the Director of MoveOn.org after raising a reported $300 million for the Democrat Party when he stated: “Now it is our Party. We bought it, we own it.”

Given all of the above, what can be done to preserve and restore our great country in the footsteps of those who have given so much to assure that our generation and hopefully generations to come will experience the success and prosperity that has been created by our heritage and traditions.

There is only one acceptable answer to this question other than some sort of Divine Intervention. That answer is to defeat the Democrat Party at the voting booths and start the “process” of re-establishing individual freedom, personal responsibility, personal accountability, liberty, and a profound respect for God and country.

The magnitude of this “process” is beyond the imagination of this writer but, suffice it to say, we must start and the first step has to be to stop the downward spiral being orchestrated by Barack Obama and the other National Democrat leaders under the tutelage of the various anti-American factions described in this article and in much greater detail in my book.

It is difficult to understand how any American who understands the content of this document could even consider voting for a Democrat. Generational Democrats need to understand that the Democrat Party of John Kennedy and Harry Truman no longer exists.

In closing, the stranglehold of the current day Democrat Party and its high level allies and radical supporters is of such a magnitude that it must be recognized that time is short for correcting the course of our country before the damage is irreparable.

AMERICA UNDER SIEGE:  “How” vs “Why”

By Bill Been

As an American who values our country second only to God and family, it is difficult to understand why the vast majority of the leaders and spokesmen for our country consistently voice a lack of understanding as to why Barack Obama either does or does not do certain actions that would be viewed as adding value or preserving America. Whether it be elected officials, political experts, talk-radio, or fair and balanced discussions, it seems that the typical responses when asked “Why?” are “I don’t know” or “It is incompetency” or “Obama is inexperienced” or “Obama is just a community organizer” or “inept” or “does not have the will” while ignoring the fact that Barack Obama told America exactly what he was going to do and he is closely following his stated direction.

The purpose of this document is not only to demonstrate that the answer to the “Why?” question is very straightforward, but to also demonstrate that the wrong question is being asked further masking the anti-American agenda of Barack Hussein Obama.

My book, Masters of Audacity and Deceit, clearly describes why Barack Obama is acting in a fashion that is opposing America and the fundamental principles upon which America was founded. At the time the book was written, the concerns that are reality today were presented as threats created or supported by the National Democrat Party that need to be understood and confronted by all citizens. These same threats provide the explanation for Barack Obama’s apparent “incompetence” and can be summarized in one statement as follows:

Barack Obama is simply carrying out his transformation objectives and direction that he promised five days prior to his election to the presidency in 2008 by following the ideology and teachings of Cloward & Piven, Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, and Jeremiah Wright as interpreted by a host of communists including his mother, Frank Marshall Davis, and the admitted small ’c’ communist Bill Ayers, and far left groups epitomized by the Institute For Policy Studies while drawing financial and ideological support from wealthy liberals led by George Soros and the Soros Democracy Alliance group, the anti-American Progressive groups, and Wall Street executives such as Lloyd Blankfein under the protective cover of a totally compromised Mainstream Media and the corrupted modern day Democrat Party that is populated by leaders who lie, cheat, distort, and politicize events for their self-serving objectives without regard for either America or the American people.

That Barack Obama has succeeded in reaching his objectives is evident from the following list of his “accomplishments” during his first six years:

  1. FAST & FURIOUS AND 2ND AMENDMENT
  2. NSA INTRUSION INTO PRIVACY AND FREEDOM
  3. IRS TARGETING CONSERVATIVE GROUPS
  4. BENGHAZI
  5. IRAQ-RAMADI, FALLUJAH, AND MOSUL IN CONTROL OF ISLAMIC TERRORISTS
  6. 36,000 ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS RELEASED INTO USA POPULATION
  7. BERGDAHL FOR 5 TALIBAN WAR PRISONERS
  8. MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SUPPORTED IN EGYPT
  9. SYRIAN RED LINE
  10. LIBYA IN CHAOS AS EXAMPLE OF “RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT”
  11. OBAMACARE-HERNDON ALLIANCE—“YOU CAN KEEP YOUR PLAN”—FAR LEFT, MOVE-ON, SOROS
  12. 90,000 IMMIGRANT CHILDREN AND PROPOSED $3.7 BILLION PLUS TO RESOLVE THE CRISIS
  13. BLATENT DISREGARD FOR ISRAEL AND CHRISTIANS IN FOREIGH COUNTRIES (CONVERT, TAX OR DIE)

One special accomplishment that is an active work in process of Obama and his administration is to establish that “America is not a Christian nation” while declaring that Islam was instrumental in the establishment of America. This fallacious and false representation of American history was clearly debunked in a recent Fourth of July sermon that spoke to the charters of the Original Thirteen Colonies and why these people had left their homelands for the freedoms available in the New World. These charters tell the real American story and the success in downplaying this Judeo-Christian heritage is the most repulsive and scandalous accomplishment of Barack Hussein Obama. These charters are presented with the hope being that some people will awaken and come to the rescue of America before Barack Obama and his anti-American allies complete their destruction of the greatest country on earth. Quotes from the charters follow:

Virginia – to help in “propagating of Christian religion…”

Plymouth – “…to advance the enlargement of the Christian religion to the glory of God Almighty.”

Delaware – one purpose is “…the further propagation of the Holy Gospel.”

Maryland – first settlers motivated by “…pious zeal for extending the Christian religion.”

Massachusetts – bring “the knowledge and obedience of the only true God and Savior of mankind.”

Rhode Island – “Commits its people to the true Christian faith and worship of God.”

Connecticut – “to help preserve the liberty and purity of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

New Hampshire – “…do in the name of Christ and in the sight of God…”

In addition, when the Declaration of Independence was written, the last words were “…under the protection of the Divine Providence.” This was followed some years later by George Washington, after his first inauguration, leading the members of the House and Senate to St. Paul’s Church in New York to seek guidance and to commit America to God.

In conclusion, the answer to the “Why?” question is very simply stated above if one understands the various transformation objectives that Barack Obama has clearly articulated throughout his lifetime. If this is understood, the need for the “Why?” question no longer exists, and the correct question can then be asked which is: “How do current events and crises fit into the Barack Obama transformation objectives and direction.?” Without this question being asked and answered, the American people will continue going to the next election never understanding why our great country is being diminished at home and abroad!!!!

Obama is NOT Ignorant of the Constitution nor Is He “in Over His Head”

By Scott Ryan

Some are aware that Barack Obama seems to be working to set up what is now just a shadow organization that may be likened to The People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs. 

That was the name of the public and secret police organization of the Soviet Union that directly executed the rule of power of the Soviets, including political repression, during the era of Joseph Stalin.  Perhaps he plans to save this database for some time after a planned coup d’état.

We have seen hints of this in his surreptitious call for good Marxist “Democrats” to actually –report- American citizens who criticize him at their website AttackWatch.com

I have to wonder if I have been “reported” as just a few weeks ago, I produced a video titled: President Trojan Horse’s Sleight of Hand Games.

Then, just a day ago news came out that Obama likened the House budget to a “Trojan horse” to “impose a radical vision on our country.”

His genius for evil is unparalleled. He can play a nation like Lucifer himself. He can accuse others of things of which he is guilty like calling Paul Ryan’s plan a “Trojan Horse”, while he himself is the genuine Trojan horse – and he gets away with it. There’s satisfaction in hurling invectives as we saw from the left when they would call Bush a “terrorist” and when they accused him of treason… That’s the evil genius of Satan. Those words lost their meaning BEFORE Obama took Office.

So NOW, when Obama TRULY Commits treasonous acts of terror and betrayal on a daily basis – he is inoculated because every time he commits those acts in front of the nation and God-fearing patriots aptly describe it as such, the talking heads in the national media say “oh, they’re just playing politics; there’s rancor on both sides.”  

We have come to the place where it is essentially useless to expose treachery for what it is because no matter how egregious the assault, when anyone attempts to accurately describe it, the result is as though one is crying wolf.  The amazing thing is that the Democrat Party were the people who did the repeated crying of wolf. 

I do not believe that is the least bit coincidental.  They got us to the place during the Bush administration where they caused people to tune out reality.  The end result may be that we are like the proverbial frog in a gradually heating pot of water that will boil to death.

Even now, 35% of the GOP apparently agrees with Mitt Romney’s repeated contention that Barack Obama is a “well meaning” American who is merely “in over his head” and that he “doesn’t UNDERSTAND the Constitution”.

Barack Obama isn’t ignorant of the Constitution; he understands it just as well as anyone.  He just despises it. Like all Marxists and like his pastors Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan, Obama despises the United States. He despises Jesus Christ, the bride of Christ (the church) which is the charter upon which this stands.

He can violate our constitution and take abuse of Americans to new depths – yet he will continue without any legal animadversion because this nation has been so desensitized toward evil. Evil is now celebrated as good while good is regarded as evil, and those who stand against evil are persecuted by the left.

To judge Obama as naive, inexperienced, or ignorant is to grossly underestimate him. He has mastered evil so adroitly it is seemingly supernatural – and it very well may be.

America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President

By David Barton

When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.

Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:

  • April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” 1
  • February 2009 – Obama announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs, and fully implements the plan in February 2011. 2
  • April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech. 3
  • May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House. 4
  • April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three. 5
  • October 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions. 6
  • November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. 7
  • January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court. 8
  • February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress. 9
  • April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. 10
  • August 2011 – The Obama administration releases its new health care rules that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contraception. 11
  • November 2011 – Obama opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial. 12
  • November 2011 – Unlike previous presidents, Obama studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech. 13
  • December 2011 – The Obama administration denigrates other countries’ religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights. 14
  • January 2012 – The Obama administration argues that the First Amendment provides no protection for churches and synagogues in hiring their pastors and rabbis. 15
  • February 2012 – The Obama administration forgives student loans in exchange for public service, but announces it will no longer forgive student loans if the public service is related to religion. 16

2. Acts of hostility from the Obama-led military toward people of Biblical faith:

  • June 2011 – The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery. 17
  • August 2011 – The Air Force stops teaching the Just War theory to officers in California because the course is taught by chaplains and is based on a philosophy introduced by St. Augustine in the third century AD – a theory long taught by civilized nations across the world (except America). 18
  • September 2011 – Air Force Chief of Staff prohibits commanders from notifying airmen of programs and services available to them from chaplains. 19
  • September 2011 – The Army issues guidelines for Walter Reed Medical Center stipulating that “No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading materials and/or facts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit.” 20
  • November 2011 – The Air Force Academy rescinds support for Operation Christmas Child, a program to send holiday gifts to impoverished children across the world, because the program is run by a Christian charity. 21
  • November 2011 – The Air Force Academy pays $80,000 to add a Stonehenge-like worship center for pagans, druids, witches and Wiccans. 22
  • February 2012 – The U. S. Military Academy at West Point disinvites three star Army general and decorated war hero Lieutenant General William G. (“Jerry”) Boykin (retired) from speaking at an event because he is an outspoken Christian. 23
  • February 2012 – The Air Force removes “God” from the patch of Rapid Capabilities Office (the word on the patch was in Latin: Dei). 24
  • February 2012 – The Army orders Catholic chaplains not to read a letter to parishioners that their archbishop asked them to read. 25

3. Acts of hostility toward Biblical values:

  • January 2009 – Obama lifts restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, forcing taxpayers to fund pro-abortion groups that either promote or perform abortions in other nations. 26
  • January 2009 – President Obama’s nominee for deputy secretary of state asserts that American taxpayers are required to pay for abortions and that limits on abortion funding are unconstitutional. 27
  • March 2009 – The Obama administration shut out pro-life groups from attending a White House-sponsored health care summit. 28

Breitbart’s Death Needs to Be Investigated for the Sake and Safety of All Journalists

By Andrew Steele

A month ago, while speaking at CPAC, conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart bragged to his audience about having incriminating videos of Barack Obama that would sink the president’s reelection campaign.  Later he told Lawrence Sinclair of Sinclair News “Wait til they see what happens March 1st.”

On March 1st, shortly after midnight, Andrew Breitbart was dead at the age of 43.  Even before there was an autopsy the media was quick to assure the shocked public that Breitbart had died of “natural causes”.  Conservative, and even some liberal, mouthpieces shared their fond memories of Breitbart on television and in opinion pieces, while others– like Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone– happily basked in the death of their ideological rival.

Breitbart’s final hours were described to The Hollywood Reporter by Arthur Sando, who is a publicity and marketing executive for the dietary supplement company MonaVie and has worked for several large television networks in the past.  According to Sando, Breitbart walked into The Brentwood– a restaurant and bar in L.A.– and sat down next to him.  Sando recognized Breitbart due to his fame and they engaged in a discussion for about two hours.  Sando said that Breitbart was “friendly and engaging” and that he had stopped at the bar for a drink but hadn’t come there to meet anyone in particular.  Breitbart didn’t drink excessively, according to Sando’s account, was on his blackberry a lot, and didn’t exhibit any signs of health or other problems.  Before Breitbart left they exchanged contact information and planned on getting together.

Later that night (at about 12:30 or 1 a.m) Breitbart was found on the sidewalk near his Westwood home after having collapsed, according to his father-in-law, Orson Bean.

“He was walking near the house somewhere…. He was taken by paramedics to UCLA and they couldn’t revive him,” said Bean.

Other reports mention that a neighbor saw Breitbart collapse.

As of this writing the results of the autopsy are still pending.

Though Breitbart was no spring chicken, at 43 he was still young enough for his death to be considered untimely.  It’s been reported that Breitbart had heart problems (I have yet to find any source detailing what specific heart problems he had, however).  His editor in chief Joel Pollak spoke to Carol Felsenthal for a piece that was posted on The Hill.  Though Felsenthal wrote that Pollak never said so specifically, she claimed he indicated that he thought Breitbart died of natural causes.

Yet in that piece Pollack was quoted as saying:

“Andrew was the picture of health. I had a conversation with someone who had been with Andrew on the day before he died and this person told me, ‘Andrew looked so good.’ He went to the gym the day he died, he was losing weight, he was healthy and robust.”

Since Andrew Breitbart was adopted and his birth parents’ identities have not been disclosed to the general public, it’s currently unknown whether or not he had a genetic predisposition to early death due to heart disease or any other kind of ailment.

As the first suspicions were being raised about the amazing timing of Breitbart’s death– taking place in the first hour of the very day he planned to release allegedly controversial video footage– mainstream media columnists began their usual attacks on those voicing their suspicions, with slurs and insults but very few facts to reassure a rightfully distrustful public that Breitbart couldn’t possibly have been the victim of an assassination.  The nature of Breitbart’s death leads many to dismiss reasonable questions about the timing as “conspiracy theories” because indeed it is true that sometimes people unexpectedly die young of natural causes.  What usually comes to most people’s minds when imagining political murders are violent scenes in which a person is shot or quietly strangled, or some kind of traceable poison is slipped into his or her drink.  These kinds of scenes play out in movies and do little to inform the public of how terrifyingly simple it is for a person with the right resources to murder another and make it look like a natural death, leaving behind no trace of the crime whatsoever.

It is indeed possible to make somebody to have a heart attack.

As far back as 1975, during the Church Committee hearings, it was revealed that the CIA had developed a poison that could cause a person to have a sudden heart attack. They froze the poison into the shape of a dart and fired it at high speed from a pistol so that it would go right through the clothes of the person who was shot, melt, and be absorbed into the body and blood to initiate the heart attack, leaving nothing but a small red mark on the body. The poison was developed in such a way that it was undetectable by the autopsy procedures of the time.

Again, Breitbart’s official cause of death hasn’t been released yet, however a heart attack is the explanation that the media seems to be herding the public towards.  This is just one example of a weapon that came to light many decades ago, reluctantly revealed to a committee investigating the activities of American intelligence services.  It’s a testament to what the U.S. government was capable of in 1975, and says nothing of how that technology has been improved thirty-seven years later, or what nasty devices and poisons they managed to keep secret.

Of course, an order to kill Breitbart need not have even come directly from the White House.  It could have come from parties interested in seeing that the President stay in office.  Certainly if the CIA can figure out how to kill a person in a cleverly untraceable way, so can the organizations of powerful people who may have copied the CIA’s methods and technology or even had it directly given to them at one point or another.

It’s on record that in the past the U.S. government has worked with the mob.

Under “Operation Underworld” the U.S. government cooperated with organized crime figures during World War 2 to counter Axis spies and saboteurs along the U.S. northeastern seaboard ports, avoid labor union strikes, and fight theft by black-marketeers of war supplies.

The CIA also utilized members of the mob in plotting to kill Fidel Castro.

As the article “The Plots to Kill Castro” by Edward Jay Epstein, (published in the June 2000 issue of GEORGE) explains, investigations by the CIA’s Inspector General in 1967 and the Church Committee 1975 revealed that there were at least eight separate plots to kill the Cuban leader starting in 1960. Seeking to arrange less expensive ways to carry out the deed, the CIA saw an advantage in employing the mob because of its contacts in the Cuban underworld, and because if the assassins were killed or captured, Castro’s well known actions against the mob in closing down its enterprises in Cuba and the animosity created as a result would provide the CIA a degree of separation from the hit and plausible deniability.

For working with the CIA, the mob members involved in the plot got protection from FBI investigations into their criminal activities at home.

From that article:

“Rosselli proposed a simple plan: through its underworld connections in Cuba, the Mafia would recruit a Cuban in Castro’s entourage, such as a waiter or bodyguard, who would poison Castro. The CIA’s Technical Services Division, informally known as its “workshop,” was given the job of producing and testing on monkeys an untraceable poison. It came up with a botulinus toxin that the CIA’s Office of Medical Services then injected into Castro’s favorite brand cigars. It also produced simpler botulinus toxin pills that could be dissolved in his food or drink. But the deputized Mafia contacts failed to deliver any of the poisons to Castro. As Rosselli explained to the CIA, the first poisoner had been discharged from Castro’s employ before he could kill him, while a back-up agent got “cold feet.”

According to Mancow Muller– a conservative radio host and a friend of Breitbart– who spoke on the Alex Jones show, Breitbart had told him “The house of cards is coming down, I have information that will destroy Barack Obama, it’s over”.

Breitbart was ready to release his Obama college video on March 1st, yet it took his team until March 7th to get it out to the public. Though this might not be all that was on the video, Breitbart specifically mentioned during his CPAC speech that it would show that Obama met with a bunch of “silver ponytails” back in the 1980′s like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who said “One day we’re going to have the presidency”.

Why the alleged specifics of the video are important to mention is because after a week of waiting, what has been released and purported to be Breitbart’s scandalous video is mundane footage of a young Obama praising some professor at a public rally in 1991.

While Breitbart’s critics often argue that he distorted the views of his targets or left out material in order to take their words out of context, there is a huge difference between doing that and turning a boring speech on a sunny day about a professor into a meeting with radical people seeking to usurp the the nation through the presidency.  People will say many things about Andrew Breitbart, but he wasn’t stupid…not in the sense that he would outright lie about what he had and not expect his credibility and career to be in the toilet when a month later what he produced turned out to be something completely different and benign.  

This was not like the Shirley Sherrod incident in which the footage was edited in such a way that it changed the context of what was said.  This was a completely different video…like apples and chocolate cake.  Not only that, but there’s nothing  in the video that could even be debated as being politically damaging to Obama…just a preview of the same smooth talking, cookie cutter oratory Americans would find themselves listening to in 2008.

On top of all this, though the media has claimed that the footage was released by Harvard University Law School professor Charles Ogletree, who had kept the footage hidden during the 2008 campaign because he was an Obama supporter, in fact video of this exact same speech was included as part of a PBS special that aired in 2008.

Had similar circumstances happened to an outspoken critic of the national head of the Soviet Union during the 1970′s, Americans would have rightly cried foul and strongly suspected murder, even if the details of the alleged crime couldn’t immediately be pieced together.   Under the last few presidents, and now under Barack Obama, we’ve witnessed the United States government transform into an increasingly open dictatorship in which Americans can be killed or indefinitely detained on the President’s order, war can be waged solely based on the President’s command, and in which whistle blowers are persecuted and even prosecuted.

This is not about political ideology or whether or not you supported Andrew Breitbart’s views on certain issues, liked his personality, or agreed with his methods. This is about a man who died– a man who made many enemies and who was threatening to bring down the person who holds the most powerful official position in the world, as well as any people who had a stake in keeping him there.

If there’s even a chance Andrew Breitbart was murdered it must be fully and independently investigated, no matter what destination such an investigation might lead to.  An attack on Andrew Breitbart’s life would equate to attack on all political dissenters, both conservative and liberal . As human beings we owe it, not just to Andrew Breitbart but to ourselves and our own security, to shed further light on this strange event and to look out for each other, even if we don’t agree with all the world views our fellow bloggers and commentators hold.
