Wikileaks: Truth Is Treason In The Empire Of Lies

Common Sense Commentary: Just as electoral vote stealing is plainly, mostly a Democrat practise, the political expositions, by whistle blowers, are plainly violations of mostly Democrats, which is also the anti-Christian Standards party.

My un-named Internet friend, in high places, who is quite a word-master, gives this bit of logical wisdom to the Wikileaks debate....

A properly functioning government has to have strategic secrets to deal with external threats. To compromise that is treasonous.  But when the biggest secrets surround its own corruption, cover ups, malfeasance and abuse of its own constituency then I'd say the contract is broken and at some tipping point exposing it may be considered a constitutional duty....  uphold against all threats foreign and domestic, right?  Of course if the motivation is political then that pollutes the whole argument...
Truth is treason in the empire of lies.

Julian Paul Assange, who was born 3 July 1971, is an Australian computer programmer, publisher and
journalist. He is editor-in-chief of the organisation WikiLeaks, which he founded in 2006.

So, no, he is not an American, not a Republican, not a Conservative, and not a lover of Donald Trump. He seems only an exposer of corrupt politicians of whatever country, party, sex, race, creed or color. He is hated by politicians out of fear and  the world's Major News Networks for upstaging them and revealing ugly secrets they do their best to cover up, for their friends. Anyone hated by Obama, Hillary and Soros can't be all wrong. They have, with international and media help, accused Assange of every kind of crime and deviation possible and will eventually kill or imprison him. They are putting immense pressure on Ecuador to kick Assange out of their London embassy so he can be arrested and prosecuted. RB

Dominie Bush Many email systems use a verification system called DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) that shows whether an email has been changed. It uses a key stored on the email server that sent the email, so that it can’t be forged. Hillary Clinton's website uses gmail. The emails revealed by Assange had not been tampered with.

My Predictions: Here Are America's Hard Choices With Their Consequences

Common Sense Commentary: The Choices: Clinton/Kaine or Trump/Pence. Neither will save us.

The Consequences if Hillary/Kaine are elected....

1. They will continue, and expand, the Obama Democrat Agenda.

2. They will increase government size, spending and debt.

3, They will appoint at least four more Liberal Socialist Supreme Court Justices.

4. They will almost surely also sweep in with them a Democrat Senate, House or both.

5. They will double down on abortion laws, same sex marriage laws, and gun control laws. (Right now the Supreme Court is divided 4 to 4. All they need is one more to do as they will.

6. Conservative Churches who see abortion and gay marriage as a spiritual issue will probably lose their tax exempt status.

7. Christians will probably lose tithing as a tax exemption since most tithers are Conservative.

8. Home ownership will probably lose mortgage interest paid, as a tax exemption for the same reason.

9. They will remove any hindrances to foreign border crossers unless it is against Christians and Social Conservatives identified by entrance questions.

10. They will further weaken our U.S. Military.

11.They will continue Clinton/Obama's Benghazi /Iranian/Syrian type foreign policy.

12. Hillary's Attorney General appointee will expand Eric Holder's mode of prosecuting Conservatives and ignoring the guilty Liberals. Freedom will diminish; tyranny will increase, and sin will run rampant across the land, especially in large cities where most Democrats live and vote.

13. If Hillary dies or resigns as President, Tim Kaine will continue the same Democrat/Soros agenda.

The only positive in a Democrat victory on Nov.8, just a few days from now, is that when the unavoidable and imminent financial and political crash happens .... It will happen on Hillary's Democrat watch. Then the Democrats, Hillary and Obama will get the blame for years into the future.
Which also means that after the crash, if we still have free elections, Republicans will be elected and will have to try to clean up the mess. That job will take many years, great hardship, and will result in a series of 4 year switches from Democrat to Republican Presidents.... back and forth. That will cause tremendous, national instability. The same thing will be happening in other countries in a chain reaction. This will add fuel to the global drive for a world currency and a world government.

On the other hand, If Trump wins, the only really negative consequence of a Constitutional Republican being in the office of President, when the crash comes, is that neither Trump, Pence, Hillary nor anyone else can repair, in four years, the Liberal, Socialist and wicked wounds already struck against our Republic. But Republicans, and Trump, will get the blame for years to come. This bleak prediction will have a chain reaction around the world and set the world population up for acceptance of a savior ... the Anti-Christ.

These predictions are based on the steady, historic movement of Democrats to the left and common knowledge of Democrat leadership in general, Obama's 8 year, anti-Constitution record and the Clintons' lifetime in public office corruption and their private Clinton Foundation's illegal operations.
It is also based on my lifetime study of the Bible, prophecy, history and world events. It all leads up to the Anti-Christ ... but also the Christian Rapture, the Tribulation, the Return of Christ to set up his Millennial (1000 year ) Kingdom on earth. 100% of Bible prophecy will happen. My comments are not prophecies, they are predictions, so score them on a percentage of accuracy. If, in total, they prove to have been 60% or more accurate, I will be vindicated. I am not worried because I have read the last chapter. If you are a Christian, neither should you be worried; we will win in the end. If you are not a real Christian, you should be exceedingly worried.... Your Anti-Christ, The Tribulation and Hell await you. But Jesus Christ still wants you and will accept you now if you accept Him. RB

Writing for the left-leaning Washington Post, Marc Thiessen ... declared that “Hillary Clinton is a threat to religious liberty.” He began his October 13 column with these two sobering paragraphs:

“In a speech not long before she launched her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton made a stunning declaration of war on religious Americans. Speaking to the 2015 Women in the World Summit, Clinton declared that ‘deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.’ 

“Religious beliefs have to be changed? This is perhaps the most radical statement against religious liberty ever uttered by someone seeking the presidency. It is also deeply revealing. Clinton believes that, as president, it is her job not to respect the views of religious conservatives but to force them to change their beliefs and bend to her radical agenda favoring taxpayer-funded abortion on demand.

Lady Legal Immigrant Says "I Won't Be A Slave Again"

There Is Only One Way That Can Be Assured

Common Sense Commentary: The second amendment was included in our U.S. Constitutional birth rights primarily as a defense against tyrannical government. 
It is the civilian right to raise an armed "militia" to resist and overthrow our own government if it ever becomes our master as it did when Briton ruled us, abused our citizens and taxed us without any representation in that government. RB

The American Left seems to have a chronic issue with ignorance; ignorance of world history, ignorance of the real reason behind the Second Amendment, ignorance of how to defend against tyranny, just ignorance plain and simple. One Chinese legal immigrant is not afraid to stand up to their ignorance.
The Second Amendment exists to provide each American the right to defend himself against those who would threaten him; whether that threat originates with a criminal attacker or the government. Read the words of a woman who experienced tyranny firsthand. As an American by choice, she understands her right to bear arms. And she’s not backing down.
President Obama knows that the American people have not embraced his radical, leftist gun control agenda.
That’s why he took to the stage at a town hall spectacle hosted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper in attempt to defend his unconstitutional executive actions for stealth gun control, and try to convince Americans once and for all that he is not enacting some kind of gun grabbing conspiracy.
But his “common sense” policies – made law under the force of executive order – and his crocodile tears for exploited victims of gun violence are not going to shift pubic opinion.
There is clearly a line in the sand, and a bold Chinese immigrant, who became an American citizen by choice, is the latest to remind the government what it shall not infringe.
Lily Tang Williams happens to be the state chair of the Colorado Libertarian Party and has made a splash with her January 5th Facebook post, which has now received thousands of comments and shares. Williams vows to defy all government attempts at disarmament, citing the authoritarian abuses of China, her native country.
She declares, “I will always stand with my AR, no matter what my President signs with his pen.”
Lily Tang Williams posted this on her Facebook account with the above picture of her holding a rifle against the backdrop of an American flag:
“If you believe more gun control by your government is going to save lives, you are being na├»ve. The champion of all the mass killings in this world is always a tyrannical government.
Where I came from, China had killed thousands of the students by its own government during the massacre of Tian An Men square in 1989. I surely wish my fellow Chinese citizens back then had guns like this one I am holding in the picture.
I am a Chinese immigrant and an American citizen by choice. I once was a slave before and I will never be one again.
I will always stand with my AR, no matter what my President signs with his pen.”
As she is not backing down, neither are we Mr. President. We don’t trust you, and unlike you and your co-horts, we have read our history books and are not willing to put our safety in the hands of those who care nothing the democracy they deceivingly swore to protect.

The 2nd Amendment Is Not About Hunting..... From our Founding Father's, the Framers of the U.S. Constitution, it was about protecting themselves and their country from tyrannical government, which they successful overthrew because they were armed. Had they not been armed, we would still be under British rule.
Hear this testimony of another brave woman....

My Texas

Common Sense Commentary: After nearly 30 years pastoring the church my wife and I, and our children, established in Florida, during my last months there, my health broke and I had two major surgeries. My doctor, knowing the state of my health, told me I should think of retiring and look after my health. I told him I just couldn't bear to leave the church  and felt it would almost kill me to leave.
He was quiet a moment and then said, Dr. Blair, you can continue pastoring here and soon have a big funeral or go home to Texas, live a lot longer and have a small one. Mrs Blair and I prayed about it and it did nearly kill me for a couple of years, but we are both still alive and quite well. I love Texas and thank the Lord often for extending my years and allowing me this blog ministry. But I still love that church ... those wonderful, generous, loving people we shared the heartbreaks and blessings with for so many years ... the best years of our lives. But we came home to Texas so we wouldn't be a distraction to the unity and effectiveness of the church. It was the right decision and we still have the precious memories to bless us in these later years.

Here is a Texas song I learned as a small boy, in school, and have sung it all my life....

My friend Chester Grimsley, a lover of Natures glory and wild things, dug this video up for me. Chet and Rita, and their children were among the members of that wonderful Florida church. Thanks Chet, for the video. It expresses what I feel about my state, and why I came home when father time ran me down. RB

Hillary Says She Has "A Public And A Private Position On All Political Issues"

Common Sense Commentary: In a private speech to a Wall Street Firm, Hillary recommended a method she uses in dealing with the public to pacify them so she can get done what she really believes is best for everybody..... she lies to the public but carries out her secret agenda. It has always amazed me that people will believe a habitual liar again and again when she has seldom, if ever, told the truth. Some of us have always known that is exactly what Liberal Socialist Politicians do because their agenda of a free everything, no borders, one political party, one religion, one world system is what they secretly believe in and worship. It is their Godless religion ... an evolutionary world growing constantly better, more powerful, more intelligent, more affluent and finally immortal, but 
"...without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world." Eph.2:12

So here is what Hillary really believes ... in her own "secret" words.
From The Daily Caller News foundation

During a private 2013 speech to the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton emphasized the importance of holding two positions on political issues — a “public” one and a separate “private” one. 

Clinton’s speech to the NMHC, a trade organization representing apartment building owners and developers, was one of many private speeches she gave which she refused to release the transcripts of despite heavy pressure from Sen. Bernie Sanders and Republican nominee Donald Trump. Excerpts from those speeches were released Friday as part of a larger leak of over 2,000 emails to Clinton campaign manager John Podesta. 

In the speech, Clinton talked about how the horse-trading of politics looks bad to the public, necessitating the creation of a separate public position that doesn’t reflect one’s actual views. 

“You just have to sort of figure out how to … balance the public and the private efforts that are necessary to be successful, politically, and that’s not just a comment about today,” Clinton said. “Politics is like sausage being made. It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody’s watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.”

They are all of that philosophy in different degrees. RB

Voting For Hillary? Here Is A Timely But Uncanny Parallel To An Observation Made in 1863

What she will do in the future is what she has always done...

Common Sense Commentary: "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it". George Santayana in 1863. Unless you remember Hillary Clinton's failed political decisions over the last 40 years, you may soon awaken to discover your ignorance has condemned you to relive the pain and suffering she brought upon those around her over the years ... and now it is your turn to suffer as they did. Below is a list of some of her many bad decisions, lies and corruption which you may have failed to search out if you are young, or have forgotten if you were there when it was happening. RB

Here is a reminder of the real Hillary Clinton from a friend and Patriot, Papaowl.

Do you remember?

How quickly we forget! If you’re over 35, take a walk with me down memory lane—you won’t believe what you have forgotten. If you’re under 35, read on—I promise you that you will be amazed at what you missed! (Sadly, this isn’t a joke. I wish it was.)

(January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001—two terms)
When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over an attempt to reform health care.
Her proposed plan was so bad that many Democrats came up with competing plans of their own in protest, and in spite of threats and intimidation, on September 26, 1994, the “Hillarycare” bill was declared dead.
This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
Then, President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood—both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration.
Next, she chose Janet Reno, which husband Bill described as "my worst mistake."
(Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.)
Husband Bill also allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission—Lani Guanier was her selection.
After considerable backlash from prominent Democratic senators concerning Ms. Guanier's radical views, Bill Clinton withdrew her name from nomination, stating that she did not represents the civil rights views that he had championed during his campaign.
However, apparently a slow learner, husband Bill continued to allow Hillary to make more recommendations.
She chose former law partners, Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department.
Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
(Is anyone wondering yet what her Supreme Court Justice appointments would be like?)
Many younger voters will have no knowledge of "Travelgate," the first major ethics controversy during Bill’s presidency.
Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend, Harry Thompson—but the White House Travel Office refused to comply.
She trumped up allegations of financial mismanagement and reported seven long-time White House employees to the FBI. This ruined their reputations, got them fired, and caused a thirty-six month investigation.
Eventually, most of the employees were reinstated and Clinton associates were forced out of the travel office. Only one White House employee, Billy Dale, was charged with a crime—the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds; a jury acquitted him in less than two hours.
Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House Security.
When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the President denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.
Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the "bimbo eruption" and scandal defense.
Let’s look at some of her more notable decisions in this regard . . .
She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation, they settled with Ms. Jones.
She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.
After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary's devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for 'lying under oath' to a grand jury, followed by his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.
Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, "I do not recall," "I have no recollection," and "I don't know" a total of 56 times while under oath. (Sound familiar?)
After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had "mistakenly thought was hers."
So you see, the email scandal and all of her malfeasance regarding the handling of Top Secret information, not to mention the "pay to play" schemes of the Clinton Foundation, are nothing new.
Hillary’s entire political career has been nothing but a web of lies, corruption and destruction in her quest for power.
Is anyone else ready to say, “Enough is enough!”?
But unfortunately, I’m sure her loyal fans will say, "What difference does it make?"
Bottom line...Anybody but Hitlery

So Who Is Winning What's Left Of America? My Gut Tells Me ... To Throw Up

Then get back on the firing line....

Common Sense Commentary: I didn't have the stomach to watch the Presidential spit fight last night. If there had been the slightest possibility of learning something positive about my country's future, I would have. But, I just could not take another moment of listening to Hillary boast of her lifetime of lies, greed and lust for power as if all of that was a positive accomplishment. Neither could I bring myself to listen to "America's best hope", Donald Trump, boast of what a super intellectual, successful, rich master of "the art of the deal" he is. If a choice between a habitually, corrupt liar or a habitual braggart is all we are offered, I will have to vote against the habitual liar and queen of corruption. The Clintons have been in public office 40 years, since Bill was elected Attorney General of Arkansas, so we know what we can expect of them .... more corruption, greed and lying. If Trump is as adept at running the country as he has been in shady, but legal business deals, who knows where it will take America. Where ever that may be, though possibly a roller-coaster ride, it can't be as bad as the certainty of where Bill and Hillary will take us.... more Benghazis, more open borders, more Muslim infiltrators, more selling of political favors, more taxes, more immorality, more violations of our Constitution and less employment, less integrity and less freedom.

At this late date, every voter knows which of the two sorry candidates they prefer. The final question is, which of the two camp's backers are the most emotionally driven by love, hate or fear to actually go stand in line to vote that choice? I suspect that would be Trump's. But that does not account for a key state's vote being stolen (as in Chicago Ill.) and which party is most likely to do the stealing. That would be Hillary's. We can survive Trump as President but Hillary will be the end of America as we remember it ..... before that other corrupt Democrat .... Obama, set the stage for national disintegration.

His Angry Words Won Him The Nomination And May Lose Him The Election

Common Sense Commentary: The ability to communicate through words is a mysterious and powerful phenomenon in God's creation of humans.... created in His own image. His Word, Jesus, in John one, and His word in Genesis one, by which he spoke the worlds into existence, and then instructed us throughout the rest of His word... the entire bible, are wonderfully full of wonder. Words spoken are more blessed than their thought or more destructive than a bolt of lightening or a nuclear bomb. More lives, more homes, more churches and more nations have been blessed or cursed by words than any other single faculty or facility at man's command. Wars have been started, ended and avoided by words. A single phrase has cost kings their kingdom, nominees the Presidency, Congress or Supreme Court appointment. If Hillary loses the election, her deceptive and lying words will probably be the cause, not Bill, not Benghazi and not her corrupt, illegal Foundation. If Trump loses it will most certainly be his unbridled and thoughtless words, not his wealth, not his deal making, and not his crazy hair that costs him the Presidency. His words overshadow everything else he has ever done. A person's words can promote or demote, make or break them....

Trump's Words
"Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth....." Proverbs 6:2

Trump's V.P. Mike Pence's Words
"The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies...." Ecc.12:11

Hillary's Words
"The words of (her) mouth are iniquity and deceit: (she) hath left off to be wise, and to do good." Psalms 36:3

Hillary's V.P. Tim Kaine's Words
"Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience." Eph.5:6.

Obama's Words
"The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords." Psalms 55:21

Typical Politician's Words
"For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple." Rom.16:18.

The Average American's Words

"And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath the Lord pronounced all this great evil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God?Jer.16:10

Every Person's Words
"....Every man's word shall be his burden...." Jer.23:36
"But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." Jesus said it ... Matt.12:36

God's Word
'Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee." Psm.119:11

If you don't want some stupid thing you say or write, repeated, at some future critical moment, don't say it or write it down. How many lives have been ruined by idle or angry or stupid words repeated for the world to see long after they were spoken?

Welcome To Texas Constitutional Patriots. All Others Stay And Ruin Where You Are

Common Sense Commentary: It is just plain Common Sense why Texas is different from the Detroits of our country. In Texas it is called Horse Sense. Some call it logic, reason or wisdom. But what it does for a person, a city, a state or a nation is .... It makes for law and order, balance, responsibility and success, all of which produce peace.

Fortune magazine says, in their June 2016 issue, under the title "All Signs Point To Texas", that "Texas Is Wide Open For Business" and "Business Is Bigger In Texas". They began the article by listing several of the exceptional reasons Texas is thriving ahead of all the other states. Here are seven unique qualities listed in Fortune for the success in Texas .... 

1. No Personal Or Corporate Income Taxes.

2. In 2015 Texas Was The Nations Top Exporter For The 14th Consecutive Year.

3. Based On Number Of Jobs, Texas Ranks No.1 In The Nation For Foreign And Domestic Investment.

4. Texas Is Home To 9 Of The Top 10 Fastest Growing City Economies In The Nation.

5. Texas Is The 12th Largest Economy In The World Based On GDP.

6. Texas has More Freight Rail And Public Roads Than Any Other State.

7. Texas Is Home To Over 50 Of The Fortune 500 Company Headquarters.

Fortune goes on to point out that High-Tech Companies, Fortune 500 Firms, Innovators, and talent from all over the country are pouring into Texas, Lured by low taxes, high quality living, skilled labor force and the Texas determination to help business succeed here. They also mention that Super Conservative Greg Abbott, a wheelchair bound Constitutionalist is our Governor. The article has dozens of additional reasons. "Freedom works in Texas, Patriotism works in Texas"... the 2nd Amendment also works in Texas and People Work in Texas.

Our forefathers designed a system of government that worked back then and still works today in Texas. Not following that Constitutional system has resulted in places like Democrat dominated Detroit where very little works any more.
FOX Business News confirmes Fortune's comments.

Texas Tops Best Places to Work and Live

By   - FOX Business News
Whether you are a recent college graduate or looking for a fresh start, location matters when it comes to finding a job and an affordable place to live.  You not only want to find a high-paying job but you want to stretch the dollars you earn.  So where can you go to find that job and get the most bang for your buck?CareerCast crunched the numbers and found Texas may be the answer.
Austin, Fort Worth, Houston and Midland are among the fastest growing cities in Texas and they rank among CareerCast’s best cities when it comes to higher pay and lower cost of living.  The cost of living in Fort Worth, for example, is more than 50 percent lower compared to New York City and 40 percent lower compared to San Francisco. 

The Lone Star State

“All of those cities are growing right now and they are growing because they do have a broad spectrum of jobs they are looking to fill.  A lot of businesses are starting to boom,” says Kyle Kensing, editor at CareerCast.  Companies including Facebook (FB), HomeAway (EXPE), Google (GOOGL), 3M (MMM) and Toyota (TM) have offices in the state.  Energy companies including Conoco Phillips (COP) and Halliburton (HAL) are also big employers.     
Texas is attractive because the state has no corporate or individual income tax and ranks as one of the most tax-friendly states for businesses according to the Tax Foundation.  “There are some tax advantages in Texas right now and the cost of property is lower too,” Kensing adds.
In Austin, the cost of living is six percent below the national average and the median household income is more than $63,000 or 18 percent above the national figure.  In Midland, home to energy companies Baker Hughes and Diamondback Energy, the median household income jumps to more than $77,000 or 45 percent higher than the national figure.  
University Cities

Cities with large universities also top the list of best places to live and work.
Kensing says universities not only create jobs but many universities are affiliated with medical centers which offer higher pay to attract medical professionals.  “The city’s economy is not entirely dependent on the university but at the same time, the university plays a big part in some of the higher-paying sectors, in particular healthcare,” he says.
