It appears as if President Obama does not really care about womens’ rights, freedom, Liberty, the 1st or 2nd (or any) Amendments, so Iranian dissidents have turned their eyes toward an unexpected neighbor. Israel. Here is an excerpt:

Iranian Dissident: Dear Israeli Brothers and Sisters – Help Us!
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

“Dear Israeli Brothers and Sisters,” writes Iranian dissident Arash Irandoost, “Iran needs your help more than ever now. And we will be eternally grateful. Please help opposition television and radio stations which are blocked and being jammed by the Islamic Republic (Nokia and Siemens) resume broadcast to Iran. There is a total media blackout and Iranians inside Iran for the most part are not aware of their brave brothers and sisters fighting and losing their lives daily. And the unjust treatment and brutal massacre of the brave Iranians in the hands of the mullah’s paid terrorist Hamas and Hizbullah gangs are not seen by the majority of the Iranians. Please help in any way you can to allow these stations resume broadcasting to Iran.

“And, please remember that we will remember, as you have remembered Cyrus the Great’s treatment of you in your time of need,” Irandoost concludes, signing his blogged call for help “Your Iranian Brothers and Sisters!” [Please read the whole article at Israel News.]

What is happening is atrocious, and the world remains silent. Is this how Hitler rose to power? I thought we swore, “Never again!”? Shall we sit here, comfortably, getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July? What does the 4th of July really mean to you if you can sit by and say nothing?

These are our brothers and sisters. Especially if you are a Christian. What can we do, you ask yourself or me? We can burn the phone lines down calling President Obama (1-202-456-1111) and let him know what you think of his silence! You can call your representatives (1-202-224-3121 or 225-3121, they both work) and encourage them to speak out for the dissidents in Iran. We can also encourage them to put the money back into the fund set up by the Republicans and some Democrats for the Iranian dissidents. We can help them with news through TV stations that the mullahs won’t have the time to block, at least not all of them! We can also use the radio. Whatever ideas you have, share them.

Where are all the Muslims who rallied when you thought it possible that any type of book could be flushed down a toilet let alone a Koran? WHERE IS YOUR VOICE? Do you not see the horror? Or do you approve of it? How about it CAIR? Yes, I guess we know where you stand.

Let me tell you something, though. There were people protesting all across this nation. I did notice you. There were probably more of you than any TV station is about to admit, which leads me to question whether or not we truly do have a free press or just a lazy one? From New York City to California. From sea to shining sea. Yes, injustice was proclaimed by the PEOPLE, not by these so-called groups that claim to represent you. Please remember this the next time they start squaking. It’s probably for their masters. Do you really want to please those dictators? I didn’t think so.

Everyone stay safe, keep praying, keep protesting, and come to my Tea Party on the 4th of July at Bixby Park, 130 Cherry Ave, Long Beach, California. We shall be having a moment of silence, and I will be wearing a green t-shirts. What is right is right, and it doesn’t matter that it’s not happening here. The truth is, it most certainly could. We must all be grateful. Have a nice day.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

I am always moved when I hear his voice, probably because he speaks rationally, passionately, informatively, and plainly. Where have all the wise men gone? Congress chases them away! No good men or women want to go through the junk it takes to run for office let alone serve.

That being said, I want you to listen to this video. As you listen, really listen. Then I want you to ask yourself, “Do I have what it takes to be a good servant of the people?” Make up your mind soon, because time is running out. We need good men and women to throw these bums out!

If for some reason the video is not working properly, here is the YouTube link.

Many of you, such as myself, argued that President Bush and President Obama should not pass the TARP and stimulus bills, but they did it anyway. At the time, only 5% of the people were in foreclosure. The lesson that should have been learned from that situation is, “If you can’t afford something, don’t buy it”. But oh no.

The people that knew there was a bubble burst coming and waited patiently on the sidelines got screwed, because the govt just had to come in and save everyone…er…5% of the people who could not afford their houses to begin with and were foreclosed on anyway because they could not afford their houses. Duh.

Many people assume it was the ‘greed’ of Wall Street (when did they start selling houses?) and the loaning agencies. Well, in a manner of speaking they did have something to do with it, but why? Could it be that if we looked even closer we might find that the gov’t (yes, there they go again) FORCED banks to make loans they would not have made otherwise?

I know. They were going to give me a house and I don’t have a job. I told them NO!

I saved my pennies, I bought store brand food, I bought second-hand clothes if I bought any at all, and this was all for the purpose of saving enough money to put a big down payment on a house. My house. My home. My American Dream.

You will never know the language that came out of my mouth toward President Bush and President Obama over this. My dreams are crushed because I played by the rules. What kind of a lesson is this? What is the message you’re sending?

YOU ARE SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE, IDIOTS.

Which brings me to this tape I came across over at Stop the ACLU. It explains this fantasy land President Obama is living in, and why it is so disastrous. I pray he wakes up soon before we are broke. Here is the tape.

Hat tip: Stop the ACLU who got this video from Political Math.

It is with great sadness and anger that I report this story. In San Diego, California, Pastor David Jones and his wife were ordered not to conduct Bible Studies in their home with approximately 15 Church members through ‘a written warning that listed ‘unlawful use of land’ and told them to ‘stop religious assembly or apply for a major use permit’ — a process that could cost tens of thousands of dollars’.

Pardon me, but I believe the Amendment ! is a God-given right, not a government one. In this amendment it states, ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, OR THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE PEACEBLY TO ASSEMBLE; and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.’

I believe just by typing Amendment I, I have made my case. Now show me where the government finds its rights, which it is granted only by us and we have not forfeited them, from this? Do they not understand what it means when it says YOU SHALL MAKE NO LAW? Ah, but you say that only applies to Congress, right? Wrong. Let me explain.

A city cannot make a law which contradicts the laws of the state, neither can the states make a law that is contrary to that of the federal government. This is one of the precious reasons we did not hand over all of the so-called rights this government seems to be able to find when they so desire, yet cannot read their own bills which they pass. We must stop this madness, and stop it now.

For this pastor and his family and for our very posterity, this cannot stand.

Here are some links to the story: Couple: County Trying To Stop Home Bible Studies (with videos) Channel 10 News, UPDATE: Deadline set in banned Bible study case Demand letter warns of ‘irreparable’ harm from First Amendment violation World Net Daily and County puts kibosh on home Bible study One News Now.

Because I am ill, I believe it is alright for me to share this e-mail written by Mark Alexander of PatriotPost.us. Thank you.

“The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.” –Thomas Jefferson

For all of our nation’s history, there have been tactical battles between opposing political ideologies — liberals (leftists) who want to liberate us from constitutional rule of law, and conservatives who strive to conserve rule of law. Great political capital has been, and continues to be, expended by the Left in order to offend our Constitution, and by the Right in order to defend it.

Amid the din and rhetoric of the current lineup of tactical contests, I ask that you venture up to the strategic level and consider a primal issue that transcends all the political noise.

How many times have you heard the rejoinder, “Religion and politics don’t mix”?

Most Americans have, for generations now, been inculcated (read: “dumbed down”) by the spurious “wall of separation” metaphor and believe that it is a legitimate barrier between government and religion. So effective has been this false indoctrination that even some otherwise erudite conservatives fail to recall that religion and politics not only mix, but are inseparable.

Recall that our Founders affirmed in the Declaration of Independence “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

In other words, our Creator bestowed the rights enumerated in our Declaration and, by extension, as codified in its subordinate guidance, our Constitution. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are natural rights; they are not gifts from government.

To that end, Alexander Hamilton wrote, “The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”

But the Left has, for many decades, made its primary objective the eradication of God from every public quarter, and routinely relied on judicial activism to undermine constitutional rule of law and, thus, the natural rights of man.

The intended consequence of this artificial barrier between church and state is to remove knowledge of our Creator from all public forums and, thus, over time, to disabuse belief in a sovereign God and the natural rights He has endowed.

This erosion of knowledge about the origin of our rights has dire implications for the future of liberty.

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.”

As the author of our Declaration of Independence makes clear, we should all tremble that man has adulterated the gifts of God.

Ironically, it was Jefferson who penned the words “wall of separation between church and state” in an 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptist Association.

Jefferson was responding to a letter the Association wrote to him objecting to Connecticut’s establishment of Congregationalism as its state church. Jefferson responded that the First Amendment prohibited the national (federal) government from establishing a “national church.”

After all, the controlling language (Amendment I) reads, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” Jefferson concluded rightly that the Constitution’s 10th Amendment federalism provision prohibited the national government from interfering with matters of state governments — a “wall of separation,” if you will, between the federal government and state governments.

Among all our Founders, Jefferson was most adamant in his objection to the construct of the Judicial Branch of government in the proposed Constitution, writing, “The Constitution [would become] a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary which they may twist and shape into any form they please.”

Jefferson warned: “The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch. … It has long been my opinion … that the germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal judiciary; working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”

Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 81, “[T]here is not a syllable in the [Constitution] which directly empowers the national courts to construe the laws according to the spirit of the Constitution.”

But Jefferson was correct in his apprehension about our Constitution being treated as “a mere thing of wax” by what he called the “despotic branch,” who would do the bidding of their special-interest constituencies rather than interpret the plain language of the Constitution.

In 1947, Justice Hugo Black perverted Jefferson’s words when Black speciously opined in the majority opinion of Everson v. Board of Education that the First Amendment created a “wall of separation” between religion and government, thus opening the floodgates for subsequent opinions abolishing religious education and expression in all public forums.

John Adams wrote, “If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave.”

It may not be in the power of man to alienate the gift of liberty, but it will certainly take the power of men, guided by our Creator, to defend it. To that end, religion and politics are inseparable.

Semper Vigilo, Fortis, Paratus et Fidelis!

Quote of the Week
“Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. When our Founding Fathers passed the First Amendment, they sought to protect churches from government interference. They never intended to construct a wall of hostility between government and the concept of religious belief itself. … To those who cite the First Amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions every day, I say: The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.” –Ronald Reagan

As true Tea Party Patriots, we must stand together with our brothers and sisters when any and all injustices arise. It has been brought to my attention that one of our own, Steve McQueen, was denied his voice in Quincy, Illinois, by a party-line vote (7 Dems, 6 Reps). This is unacceptable. Here is the Action Alert. Please join me in responding to this unacceptable behavior and show your support for each American citizen who has the right, the duty, to address our city officials. After all, they do work for us. Let us kindly remind them of this.

Action Alert: Tea Party Organizer Needs Our Help!
Posted: 05 May 2009 06:36 AM PDT

This message was emailed to me this morning. I think it’s worthy of our attention.

-Eric
————————————————-
DATELINE: Quincy, Illinois. Folks, this is just outrageous! Steve McQueen, the organizer of the city’s Tea Party in April, was denied, on a party-line vote (7 Dems, 6 Reps), the ability to address the city council on its recent budget that passed, which included water and sewage tax increases.

According to the story by QuincyNews.org, the motion was passed not to allow him to speak on the issue, and even the mayor chimed in on after he was sworn in to office in Quincy.

So here’s what we need to do as a Tea Party folks. We need to support our own, so do the following:

1) Call the town of Quincy. Demand to speak to the Mayor’s office[, but be polite]. Here’s the info:

Mayor John A. Spring
730 Maine Street
Quincy, IL 62301
(217) 228-4545

2) E-mail the mayor’s office. Here’s the email: mayor AT quincyil DOT gov.

3) Quincy media outlets. Voice your opinion. Here’s a list of media:

A) QuincyNews.org.
P: 217-617-6665
E: QuincyNews.org/contact.

B) Quincy Herald Whig
Managing editor: Don Crim
P: 217-221-3361
E: dcrim AT whig DOT com.

C) WGEM (NBC) (Also their number for the radio affiliate)
P: (217) 228-6655
E: News AT WGEM.com.

Start the calls, start the e-mails… let them know you’re pissed upset and [we demand justice.] the Tea Party’s won’t stand for it!

Share and Save.
******************************
I did a little editing because we must keep our decorum. We do not want to give them a justifiable reason to hang up on us, even though they will. Even though this was a party line vote, also keep those republicans feet to the fire. Let them know we appreciate their vote to allow us our FREE SPEECH, but it should never have been an issue from the beginning. How does it get to the point where these twerps actually get to vote on whether or not they get listen to what we have to say?

Can anyone say, “Tea Party…Big Time!” Thanks.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Tomorrow the Senate will be having a vote for Kathleen Sebelius. It is not too late to stop this from being successful.

Press Release from Susan B. Anthony:

Secretary of Human Services is coming down to its final hours. We have received word from the Senate that they will be debating and voting on her nomination tomorrow, Tuesday April 28th.

Governor Sebelius has shown an unwillingness to back down from her extreme pro-abortion agenda. Just this past Thursday, Governor Sebelius vetoed “The 2009 Late-Term and Partial-Birth Abortion Regulation Act” in Kansas that would have put important restrictions on the abortion industry.

Once again Kathleen Sebelius has sided with her abortion clinic friends like George Tiller rather than act to protect women and children from the particularly horrific practices of partial birth and late term abortions.

Write your Senators today and once again urge them to vote NO on Kathleen Sebelius.

As governor, Sebelius has repeatedly vetoed other common-sense restrictions on the abortion industry like the Comprehensive Abortion Reform Act, which would have implemented restrictions on late-term abortion procedures. She has opposed or vetoed several abortion-accountability bills, including legislation that would have required medically-supported clinic regulation. She has also vetoed legislation requiring explicit medical reasons for post-viability, late-term abortions.

It is bad enough that Kathleen Sebelius has pushed her abortion agenda on Kansas. We cannot allow Sebelius’ radical pro-abortion agenda to be implemented for the whole country.

This fight is now more crucial than ever as opposition to Sebelius grows. Please tell your Senators to join the growing chorus of opposition to Kathleen Sebelius!

There is still time to make your voice heard! For Life,


Marjorie Dannenfelser
Susan B. Anthony List President
703-875-3370
www.sba-list.org.
Check out the SBA blog: www.suzyb.org.

P.S. Thank you for caring enough to get involved. Would you please consider giving a small gift to the Susan B. Anthony List to support our efforts to stop President Obama’s pro-abortion nominees? With your help, we can make a difference for Life!

P.P.S. Don’t miss a thing — add information@sba-list.org to your safe senders list.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.
