Are You Ready To Pay The Bank To Have Your Money Deposited There?

Common Sense Commentary: This sort of thing comes about as a result of faulty decisions on the part of Congress, the President and the appointed Federal Reserve System. The two strongest factors which keep Americans from resisting Government takeover of all of our Constitutional Rights are, (1) The phenomenon of Normalcy Bias. This common, human failure to recognize serious, even fatal, developing situations is due to people's expectation for long standing, unchanging realities to remain the same ... forever. In other words, "If I have never seen a thing happen before, it never will happen". If a thing is outside the realm of what is normal, for me, I am hard to convince that it is happening. That is Normalcy Bias. (2) Fear of government itself. It is surprising how many people will caution you about saying anything critical of government, politicians or this administration. A lot of people are afraid of "getting on a blacklist" or "drawing attention to yourself" or "being audited by the IRS". When that sort of thing becomes common it is reason enough to speak out against the rascals even louder. If there is any hope of saving our Constitutional freedoms, silence is the worst thing we can do. If you think speaking out is dangerous ... silence will buy you an even more disastrous result... tyranny.  RB

The man who trades freedom for security does not deserve 
nor will he ever receive either. – Benjamin Franklin

 From InfoWars.com

In the week that the European Central Bank cut its deposit rate for banks from zero to -0.1%, economist Martin Armstrong warns that negative interest rates are coming to the United States, meaning that Americans will be forced to pay just to keep their money in the bank.
In a move described as unprecedented, the ECB became the first central bank in history to cut any main interest rate to negative yesterday, part of a package of measures designed to encourage banks to provide more loans to businesses and households. Many view the policy as a desperate sign of Europe’s faltering economic recovery.
Critics claim that the action will do little to spur growth while threatening to cause inflation and unemployment. While banks in the EU have not indicated whether or not the costs will be passed on to consumers, the New York Times’ Neil Irwin asserts that this is inevitable.
“Banks will most likely pass these negative interest rates on to consumers, or at least try to. They may try to do so not by explicitly charging a negative interest rate, but by paying no interest and charging a fee for account maintenance,” he writes.
What about Americans? Will they also soon be charged by the bank simply for depositing their own money? Yes, according to economist Martin Armstrong.
Armstrong, who is noted for calling the 1987 economic crash to the very day, warns that U.S. banks are preparing a raft of new account fees that will serve as a de facto negative interest rate.
“In the USA, we are more-likely-than-not going to get the negative rates directly passed to consumers by the banks who will claim it is the Fed who will do so at the requests of the banks. Larry Summers has set the stage. This is just how it works. He flew the balloon to get everyone ready. This is likely to be bullish for the stock market,” writes Armstrong, noting that, “The talk behind the curtain is to impose negative interest rates on the consumer.”

With Regret, America Should Apologize To Our Defenders For Our Callousness

Common Sense Commentary: Our Government, the news media and half of America has their priorities all out of the proper order. Rethink your priorities and put our young national heros, who defend our liberties, somewhere near the top of the list and Hollywood, drug pushers and perverts at the bottom where they belong. May God restore the integrity of America and her people. RB

With Regret

The Public and Media idolized and memorialized Whitney Houston, yet looked the other way concerning her well-known substance abuse and tumultuous life with singer Bobby Brown.

Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.

Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a celebrity drug addict and thief.

The same can be said about drug addict Philip Seymour Hoffman who died with a needle stuck in his arm.

Something as frivolous as Kim Kardashian's stupid wedding (and
short-lived marriage) was shoved down our throats, while for the following Men........

Justin Allen 23
Brett Linley 29
Matthew Weikert 29
Justus Bartett 27
Dave Santos 21
Jesse Reed 26
Matthew Johnson 21
Zachary Fisher 24
Brandon King 23
Christopher Goeke 23
and Sheldon Tate 27...

...are all Marines who gave their lives last month for you. There is
no media for them; not even a mention of their names.

They were young men who most likely came from rural America seeking a chance to better themselves and to serve this country.

"Natural Selection" Is A Misnomer, Not A Scientific Term

Common Sense Commentary:  "Natural Selection" is a misnomer and unscientific as well. It is a misnomer because, though the word "natural" may be "imagined" to be unwitting, the word "selection" cannot.  "Selection" requires the knowledge of conscious, intelligent choice. Also, where did the "nature" of "natural" come from if it were not created? Evolution is a dead-end race track.

The word "science" is derived from the Latin word "scientia" and literally means "To Know". All honest evolutionists are forced, since they cannot prove their "theory", to admit that they do not scientifically KNOW that evolution it absolutely true. They are therefore holding an empty bag.

When intelligent genius pursues the miraculous beauty of creation's reality, and asks, "How did this come to be", there are only two choices ... A Creator or Evolution, Intelligent Design or Witt-less Accident, Conscious Action or Unconscious Happenstance. The supposedly "scientific" evolutionist, though perhaps highly intelligent in some ways, explains the miracle of creation in indefinite, uncertain and unscientific terms ... Genetic drift, fortuitous luck, causeless cause, unintentional development, unpremeditated incident, design-less design and unconscious fluke.  RB 

"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called...." 1 Tim.6:20. 

After 8 years and 18 expeditions to New Guinea and Australia, Cornell Lab scientist Ed Scholes and National Geographic photojournalist Tim Laman succeeded in capturing images of all 39 species in the bird-of-paradise family for the first time ever.

Bureaucratic State by Kerby Anderson 

Wesley Smith argues in a recent commentary that the "biggest threat to American freedom, in my opinion, comes from the erection of an unaccountable bureaucratic state." You might expect him to say that since he has written about medical ethics and patient power. But he goes on to quote from left leaning law professor Jonathan Turley who essentially says the same thing.

Jonathan Turley is a professor at the George Washington University Law School. He recently expressed his concerns with the government bureaucracy in a Washington Post column. He says: "The rise of the fourth branch has been at the expense of Congress's lawmaking authority. In fact, the vast majority of "laws" governing the United States are not passed by Congress but are issued as regulations, crafted largely by thousands of unnamed, unreachable bureaucrats. One study found that in 2007, Congress enacted 138 public laws, while federal agencies finalized 2,926 rules, including 61 major regulations."

Think of that for a moment. Congress passed over a hundred laws, but the federal agencies created nearly 3,000 rules. While we might have some recourse through elections to change Congress, we have no ability to affect any meaningful change on the government bureaucracy. This is rulemaking with little or no accountability.

The federal bureaucracy not only has superseded the legislative branch. It has also replaced a significant part of the judicial branch. Jonathan Turley explains that when an average citizen goes to court, he or she is more likely to have a case heard within the bureaucracy.

He says: "As the number of federal regulations increased, however, Congress decided to relieve the judiciary of most regulatory cases and create administrative courts tied to individual agencies. The result is that a citizen is 10 times more likely to be tried by an agency than by an actual court."

The fourth branch of government is growing in both size and influence. Liberals and conservatives warn it is eroding our liberty.

Oh, So Only 300 Million of 1.2 Billion Muslims Are Not Peaceful .. 25%

Common Sense Commentary: The obvious question, then, is this ... Why does not that majority of peaceful Muslims speak out against the minority 25% (300,000,000) of their fellow Muslims who hate non-Muslims or terrorize or support terrorism around the world? Those so called "peaceful" Muslims seem only to find courage to publicly complain and blame Americans for treating them "differently". If they would speak out against their fellow Muslims who are terrorists, we would treat them as heroes and welcome their presence in America as loyal citizens. For them to remain silent, whatever the reason, earns no respect or acceptance as equals among us.

Now here is a true all American hero, a fantastic spokeswoman for all true Americans. You must hear this magnificent lady. RB

Anti-Semitic, Professing Christians ??? Signs Of End Times Now In Rapid Succession

Common Sense Commentary:

God's word is clear concerning the "Promised Land" ownership by the Nation of Israel. Jehovah God gave it to Abraham, the first Jew, and founding father of the Jewish Nation, as their homeland, by an everlasting, divine covenant. Even after the twelve great grandsons of Abraham, the sons of his grandson Jacob (renamed Israel), were driven from their homeland by a drought into Egypt, the Promised Land was still theirs. Their descendants became slaves in Egypt for two hundred years but the Promised Land Covenant was still in effect, and they returned to their homeland when God delivered them from their slavery. If the Abrahamic Covenant was still in effect after 200 years of slavery in Egypt, it was still in effect when the Romans drove them out again in 137 AD. The Roman Emperor, Hadrian and following Emperors would not let the Jews return, and they were dispersed throughout the world, without a national homeland until 1948 when the US led the United Nations to re-establish the Jewish Homeland in Israel. But, remember this ... It was a miracle of God which opened that small window of time for Israel and not the United Nations. It could not have happened before the holocost and would not have been possible after 1948 because of growing Muslim oil power. Here is God's Abrahamic Covenant of a Promised, permanent Homeland and a Promised Savior Messiah, to the Jews. RB

"Now the LORD had said unto Abram (Father of the Jewish nation) , Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: (Jesus came through Jewish lineage)  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed (Jesus)So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD.... and called upon the name of the LORD."  Genesis 12:1-8.

If I were a Presbyterian, I would either see an immediate reversal of their recent anti-Jewish action or I would immediately leave their ranks and find a Bible believing church. Here is the anti-Semitic,  un-Christian, stance they have taken....


By Rabbi Allen S. Maller  June 22

The Presbyterian Church (USA) voted on June 20, 2014 by a narrow margin of 310-303 to give a big victory to divestment supporters inside and out- side the 1.8 million-member Protestant Church, to use this strategy to pressure Israel to withdraw from the West Bank.

The divestment movement, is particularly strong in the Presbyterian Church (USA) and almost passed a similar resolution two years ago.

Most Protestant churches oppose divestment. In 2012, the United Methodist Church rejected 
divestment as a tool to pressure Israel.

The issue has split the Presbyterian Church for the last decade. Then, in January 2014 the tilt against Israel became evident when “Zionism Unsettled,” a booklet produced by a church-chartered Mission, argued that the right of a Jewish nation to exist in the Holy Land is based on bad theology.

Rabbi Rick Jacobs, head of the Union for Reform Judaism, the largest branch of Judaism in North America, came to speak before the Presbyterian General Assembly the day before the vote.

The Reform Rabbi warned that a divestment vote would be taken as a sign that the Presbyterian church has aligned itself with those in the “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions” movement who vilify Israel and often question its right to exist.

“It would be an attack on the Jewish community and religion,” especially in the wake of the publication of “Zionism Unsettled,” the Reform Rabbi said.

Rabbi Jacobs offered to arrange a meeting in Jerusalem the next week for Presbyterian leaders to talk with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu if they voted against divestment.

Many who spoke against the measure urged their fellow Presbyterians to accept Rabbi Jacobs’ offer, but the majority were not open to the opportunity.

The authors of the divestment resolution did affirm the church’s support for a two-state solution and also stated that the resolution does not mean an alignment with the overall strategy of the global BDS movement, whose supporters often argue that Israel has no right to exist, and whose views the resolution did not reject.

They also did not also call for the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state; nor did they call for Hamas, the new part of the Palestinian government, to stop firing rockets at Israeli towns.
God's "Promised Land Covenant", with the Jews, is a forever continuing promise which will never be broken ... It is God's word. RB

And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.  Gen.17:8.

And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the LORD. Ex.6:8.

But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God, which have separated you from other people. Lev.20:24.

And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.  Judges 2:1

"...I will never break my covenant with you." He hasn't and He won't. 

God's regathering of the Jews to their Covenant homeland ....

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Isa.11:11-12 ...  see also Jer.16:14-15...Jer.23:3....Zeph.3:20
"From the four corners of the earth." RB

If There Is Just One Way To Get To Heaven, Is It Unreasonable To Share It?

Common Sense Commentary: No person can be forced, intimidated, or talked into being saved, becoming a Christian. It has to be their own personal, sincere will. What we can do is give them the true gospel of Christ and pray for them to truly believe in their own hearts of their own free will.
Some people think that even that is unreasonable; but for a true Christian it is absolutely essential.

Most religions on earth are neither trying nor interested in reaching the rest of the world, much less converting the world to their beliefs. The primary two which have that as a cardinal doctrine are Christian and Muslim. The Muslim method of accomplishing the "converting" of the world has historically been done by first conquering nations and tribes and then forcing the entire population to "convert", accept Muslim Sharia Law and bow and pray toward Mecca, the birthplace of  their founder, Mohammad. After their forced conversion to Islam, it didn't take but one or two generations for a conquered, occupied nation to become entirely Muslim. That is a matter of the history of Muslim expansion to include over one billion converts.

To be fair, Catholicism, for a time, did a similar thing during the so called (Roman) Crusades, though not as bloody as the Muslim methods which continue to this day. The Catholics have pretty well ceased compulsory conversions, except within families ... which were no true conversions to Christ anyway.

Whatever "religion" employs forced conversions, within families or states, they are equally in violation of both human nature and Holy Scripture. "Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." Mk.8:34. 
"And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." Rev.22:17.
"And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life." John 5:40. 
"So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God." Rom.14:12. 
Do not miss the salvation requirement of the personal, inner will of each person, to be saved.
True conversion has to be voluntary, a sincere change of heart, repentance toward God and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It has to be the personal, inner will of the person, not someone else's will. Anyone convinced against their will is of the same opinion still. Christian Salvation is a very personal thing between one person and the one and only God of the Bible. You, yourself, must ..."....Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ...." Acts 16:31.

There are not several ways to be saved. There is only one way ..."Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts 4:10 & 12. 

That being true, the one and only way to be forgiven of our sins, spiritually born again, saved for eternity and guaranteed a place in God's heaven is to personally believe and accept it into your life.

If the Bible is really God's word, and it is, then heaven and hell are real too because the Bible says they are... And if the Bible is true, Christ's great commission is also truly our calling ... to keep people out of hell and see them saved for heaven ... "And he (Jesus) said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mk.16:15. That being the case, doing our part, in Christ's church, to reach "all the world" with the good news of Jesus is not only reasonable but absolutely compelling. Not to do so is totally without excuse. To not share the only way to be forgiven saved and secure, in Christ, is what is unreasonable. RB

Five Questions For Obama's Heavily Armed, Democrat Administration

Common Sense Commentary: The President has armed these Gov. agencies like standing armies ...
FEMA, US Postal Service, TVA, Dept. of Homeland Security, Railroad Retirement Board, local police forces and others as if they were going to war against an enemy ... but they deal primarily with us, you and me. Does he consider all Gov. agencies his own private army. Does he fear the US Military will not go along with him in some sort of crisis or is he expecting a revolution or riots in the streets?  Constitutional Attorney, John Whitehead has written a book full of questions, on this subject, for Mr. Obama. RB

This from The Rutherford Institute of which John Whitehead is Founder and President. RB
In A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead charts America’s transition from a society governed by “we the people” to a police state governed by the strong arm of the law. The simple fact is that the Constitution – and in particular the Bill of Rights – is being undermined on virtually every front. The openness and freedom that were once the hallmarks of our nation are now in great peril. A Government of Wolves not only explains these acute problems, but is a call to action offering timely and practical initiatives for Americans to take charge of our present course, and stop the growing police state.
Time is running out. We are at a critical juncture, and every citizen who values his or her personal rights and freedom needs to pay close attention to the message in this book! 

And this from Kerby Anderson's  Point Of View.  Commentary on the book. RB

John Whitehead believes our government is becoming a police state and makes a convincing case in his book, A Government of Wolves. In a recent column he asks a series of questions. These are questions I think we should ask our elected officials and other candidates during this election year.

Why has there been a buildup of SWAT teams with non-security related federal agencies such as the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and the Office of Personnel Management?

Why have government agencies been stockpiling hollow point bullets? For example, why does the Department of Agriculture need .40 caliber semiautomatic machine guns and 320,000 rounds of hollow point bullets?

Why does the Postal Service need "assorted small arms ammunition"? Why did the Department of Homeland Security purchase 1.6 billion rounds of hollow-point ammunition, along with 7,000 fully-automatic NATO personal defense weapons plus a stash of 30-round high-capacity magazines"?

Why has the federal government been distributing many of these resources to police departments around the country? The Department of Homeland Security acquired more than 2,500 Mine-Resistant Armored Protection vehicles and then distributed them to local police departments. Thousands of military weapons, such as M-16 rifles and grenade launchers, are now in the hands of local police.

Why is FEMA stockpiling massive quantities of emergency supplies? This year FEMA made a statement enlisting the service of contractors who could "supply medical biohazard disposal capabilities." There were other requests for massive amounts of supplies ranging from 31 million flu vaccinations to 100,000 each of winter shirts and pants and the same for summer.

It is reasonable to ask what is all of this equipment for? What is the government preparing for? These are good questions to ask during this election season.

Voter ID Has Become Essential In Today's USA

Common Sense Commentary:  There is one main reason 9% of Republicans, 34% of independents, and 45% of Democrats are against Voter ID Laws, and it is not "Fear of the mark of the beast". That may be the reason with 2 or 3% ... novices, who are Biblically ignorant, but Christians who know their Bibles are not included. And, of course, there are a few Libertarians, who are against Voter IDs, but If you believe in Birth Certificates and Drivers Licenses, Voter IDs are a given. Obama has opened our borders to any and all comers, whatever their criminal records, diseases or terrorist intentions. Why do you think that is? Every year there are more illigitimate voters, multiple repeat voters, dead voters and even stolen elections, and those are the preponderance of people who are against Voter IDs. Almost anything Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, are for, is suspect and what they are against is usually a right thing. Kerby Anderson hits the nail on its head with this article. RB

Support for Voter ID by Kerby Anderson

Subscribe to Kerby's Point of View. During this election year, we are once again hearing comments and criticism of the proposals for voter ID. The president and the attorney general have been critical of voter ID laws. Some commentators have even labeled them as racist. Even Republicans like Senator Rand Paul have said that it is "wrong for Republicans to go too crazy" on voter ID because it might offend potential voters.

These comments would lead you to believe that voter ID laws are unpopular. But that is hardly the case. Jason Riley, writing in Political Diary, quotes from a few polls that show significant support for voter ID laws.

A poll by Fox News shows that support for these laws is quite strong in every demographic category. People were asked if they supported laws that "require voters to show a valid form of state- or federally-issued photo identification to prove U.S. citizenship before being allowed to vote." Seven out of ten of respondents supported such laws. That breaks down to 91 percent of Republicans, 66 percent of Independents, and 55 percent of Democrats. Men (71%) and women (70%) overwhelmingly supported voter ID laws. Three-fourths (75%) of whites and a majority (51%) of blacks also supported these laws.

These findings match previous polls on this subject. For example, the Washington Post poll conducted in 2012 asked if people should be "required to show official, government-issued photo identification—such as a driver's license—when they cast ballots on Election Day." Three-fourths (74%) of all respondent agreed, including 65 percent of blacks.

These polls demonstrate two things. First, the American people have basic common sense. We need to show an ID to cash a check. We need an ID to board an airplane or rent a car. We often need to provide an ID with a credit card purchase. Asking for ID to vote hardly seems inappropriate. Second, the poll also shows that opponents of voter ID will continue to have difficulty building opposition to such laws. They would be wise to drop the issue.

Excerpts From Obama's Speech At Homosexual Fundraiser In New York

Common Sense Commentary: Since God's word clearly condemns homosexuality, it makes no provision for the "marriage" of same sex partners. Therefore sex between two men or two women is not only a sin within itself, but is also adultery which compounds the sin into the realm of the abominable. See God's word below Obama's words. RB

June 18, 2014

Yesterday, President Barack Obama spoke at an LGBT  (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) fundraiser in New York City. You can watch or read the entire speech here. I thought you might like to know what he said, so here are a few excerpts from the transcript of his speech:

 The day that the Supreme Court issued its ruling, United States v. Windsor, was a great day for America. - So (Gay) Pride Month is a time for celebration, and this year we've got a lot to celebrate.  If you think about everything that's happened in the last 12 months, it is remarkable.  In nine more states you’re now free to marry the person you love - that includes my two home states of Hawaii and Illinois. The NFL drafted its first openly gay player. The U.S. Postal Service made history by putting an openly gay person on a stamp - the late, great Harvey Milk smiling from ear to ear. - When I took office, only two states had marriage equality.  Today, 19 states and the District of Columbia do. - But because of your help, we've been able to do more to protect the rights of lesbian and gay, and bisexual and transgender Americans than any administration in history. - We repealed "don't ask, don't tell," because no one should have to hide who you love to serve the country we love. - I lifted the 22-year ban on people with HIV traveling to the U.S. - Before I took office, only one openly gay judge had been confirmed in history.  We have 10 more. - ...we stopped defending the so-called Defense of Marriage Act in the courts and argued alongside Edie and Robbie before the highest court in the land. - I've directed my staff to prepare for my signature, an executive order prohibiting discrimination by federal contractors on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. My friend, our nation is in deep trouble under President Obama and liberals in Congress...are you registered to vote in upcoming elections?

Tim Wildmon, American Family Association

Let me add to Tim's quotes of Obama a quote from God's word, the Bible. RB

Romans 1:24-28   Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Father Of Rocket Science Acknowledged The Creator God

Common Sense Commentary: If you refuse to believe your sight, hearing or intelligence that the universe requires a Creator God, maybe His word will open your understanding that He is Creator.

The Father Of Rocket Science 

Wernher von Braun died JUNE 16, 1977.

He was considered father of rocket science and father modern space flight. He developed the V-2 rocket in Germany before emigrating to the United States where, in 1958, he launched America's first satellite. He worked on the U.S. guided missile program and was director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. The chief architect of the Saturn V booster rocket, he is considered "without doubt, the greatest rocket scientist in history."

Wernher von Braun received the National Medal of Science in 1975. Founder of the National Space Institute, Wernher von Braun stated:  "In this age of space flight, when we use the modern tools of science to advance into new regions of human activity, the Bible-this grandiose, stirring history of the gradual revelation and unfolding of the moral law-remains in every way an up-to-date book. Our knowledge and use of the laws of nature that enable us to fly to the Moon also enable us to destroy our home planet with the atom bomb.

Science itself does not address the question whether we should use the power at our disposal for good or for evil. The guidelines of what we ought to do are furnished in the moral law of God."
"It is no longer enough that we pray that God may be with us on our side. We must learn to pray that we may be on God's side."

To the California State Board of Education, September 14, 1972, Wernher von Braun wrote:
"One cannot be exposed to the law and order of the universe without concluding that there must be design and purpose behind it all... The better we understand the intricacies of the universe and all it harbors, the more reason we have found to marvel at the inherent design upon which it is based...." "To be forced to believe only one conclusion - that everything in the universe happened by chance - would violate the very objectivity of science itself... What random process could produce the brains of a man or the system of the human eye?... They challenge science to prove the existence of God. But must we really light a candle to see the sun?... They say they cannot visualize a Designer. Well, can a physicist visualize an electron?... What strange rationale makes some physicists accept the inconceivable electron as real while refusing to accept the reality of a Designer on the ground that they cannot conceive Him?... It is in scientific honesty that I endorse the presentation of alternative theories for the origin of the universe, life and man in the science classroom. It would be an error to overlook the possibility that the universe was planned rather than happening by chance."

In American Weekly, February 10, 1963, (Foreword to his Anthology on the Creation and Design exhibited in Nature), Wernher von Braun wrote:  "It is difficult for me to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe... Viewing the awesome reaches of space...should only confirm our belief in the certainty of its Creator."

The Real Enemy Is Finally Exposing Himself, And Will Not Quit Or Surrender This Time

Common Sense Commentary: His real, original name was Lucifer (light reflector), the fallen Archangel who declared war against Jehovah God in heaven. His primary titles are now Satan, meaning "Hateful Accuser", and Devil. This later title is translated from three different Greek words. One means "dark", another "accuser" and another "deity". So he is the dark, accusing god of this world, the originator and executor of war."In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." 2 Cor.4:4.

Whatever the U.S. foreign policy position toward the Muslim nations, one thing is certain. The majority populations of those nations will never give up their determination to rule the world. Which ever political party holds power in our country, it will not change the fanatical determination of that majority of Muslims to occupy and finally establish control and Sharia Law throughout the earth. It is their historical preoccupation. It is their religion. It is their calling from Allah, their god. It was the teaching of their warrior, founding prophet, Mohammad. It is what they believe their purpose to be. It is their "Great Commission" from Mohammad, as set forth in their "holy" Quran, as surely as our Christian "Great Commission" is, to preach the gospel of Christ "into all the world". About 600 years after Christ, Mohammad copied and perverted every cardinal  doctrine in the true word of Jehovah God, the Holy Bible. The Koran has a false god, a false prophet, a false bible, a false heaven, a false hell, false peace, false martyrs, false judgement, a false messiah, a false commission and a counterfeit replica of every other major doctrine in the Bible. Committed Muslims will never give up what they believe will determine their eternal destiny. That is why so many of them gladly kill themselves in order to kill many more of those they consider to be the enemies of Mohammedanism (Islam).

This enemy of ours is not like any other enemy we have ever had. Whether it be the Germans of WW I, the Axis powers of WWII, the USSR of the Cold War, or Communist China in Korea; all of which were fought over politics, an obsession or some other material or national interest. The present war against Muslim Terrorism is a "Religious" war and goes to the very heart and soul of this enemy. Whereas, for nearly all Americans, this war is like all the others. It is about politics, material things, some disagreement, oil, envy or an incomprehensible hatred of us. And if they hate us so, we must have done something to deserve their hatred. Therefore, the average American does not see it as purely a "religious" war against all infidels (unbelievers) and for no other real reason.  Most Americans cannot comprehend such a thing, so they resort to castigating anyone who speaks against Islam, for fear of reprisal,  or they blame Israel, which seems to be the primary objection of Muslims.... so its about politics or borders or something we did, rather than religion.  Do not be misled by the American Liberal press or by Liberal politicians who make Israel the problem or some trivial anti-Muslim video which caused Benghazi. Neither of which is true. No, the core of the problem is a fanatical religion which wants to concur and control the entire world, and this war will continue into the Tribulation Period and will only end  when Christ returns to set up His Millennial Kingdom. So buckle up and prepare for a rough ride until Jesus comes for us. The future may be dangerous but it will not be boring. And, by the way, we will not be alone. "I (Jesus) will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you ... Jn.14:18.  RB

Thousands Of Illegal Aliens Flood Across Our Southern Border

Common Sense Commentary: I don't blame the rampaging, senseless, lunatics for taking over the mental institution; I blame the well armed officials in charge and their commander-in-chief for not doing their job and allowing it to happen. In this case, the primary blame lies at the President's feet for ordering the Border Patrol to "Stand Down". He is backed up by the vote hungry, brain-dead  Democrats in Congress. The blame is also shared by cowardly Republican Congressmen for not bringing impeachment charges against the President. After hundreds of thousands more,of illegal aliens, have flooded in and joined the hundreds of thousands of them already here, the President will issue an Executive Order that they are all fully vested citizens with the right to vote. Guess who these poor, politically unlearned, hungry for free stuff, new citizens will vote with. The Democrats will then win every election, dump the U.S. Constitution, and squeeze Conservative Patriots into a disenfranchised, persecuted minority. We will then have a "majority vote", Democracy without the balancing power of a Constitutional Republic of protective Law.The American dream will have become a lawless nightmare. Obama has nothing to lose and the Liberal, Socialist Democrats will turn the U.S. into a socialist dictatorship as they did in the failed, bankrupt Soviet Union. The Communist USSR stood for Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Communism is nothing more than Socialism conjoined with Atheism. Atheism does not require a confession of it, but is a condition of the heart and mind. Many Atheists profess "Christianity" with their mouth but their hearts are far from it. Jesus said it plainly,  "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me." Matt.15:8.

Legal, organized immigration of decent, hard working foreigners is good. Illegal, out of control border crossing of drug pushers, criminals, terrorists and other undesirables is itself criminal. RB

Obama Opens Border To Mexican Gang Members

Border agent laments gang members entering 

U.S. ‘Why are we letting him in here?’

The Washington Times

By Kellan Howell-Saturday, June 14, 2014

Border Patrol officials are swamped by the number of minors crossing illegally into the United States and frustrated that they can’t turn away known Mexican gang members.

Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, said that confirmed gang members in Mexico — including those from Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) — are coming into the country to be reunited with their families, National Review reported Friday.

“If he’s a confirmed gang member in his own country, why are we letting him in here? … I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’” Mr. Cabrera told the magazine.

He said that the only way to solve the problem was to implement harsher restrictions on who can be allowed to cross.

“Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse,” he said, National Review reported.

Other Border Patrol officials said that officers must treat minors with gang-affiliated tattoos the same as anybody else wishing to cross the border.

“It’s upsetting that a lot of them are 16 pr 17 years old and a lot of them are not going to face deportation,” said Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, Ariz, National Review reported.

Mr. Cabrera told the news agency that the Rio Grande Valley location has nine stations. The largest facility is in McAllen, Texas, with a capacity of 275 people. Its agents sees between 700 and 1,500 people daily.

From all points of entry there are several thousand coming across every day without restraint.

The Left Wings Push For Adult-Child Sex A National Disgrace

Common Sense Commentary: What Must Our Holy, Creator God think of such depravity?

From  Patriot Update

By J. Matt Barber
Shocking allegations by former child actor Michael Egan against openly “gay” “X-Men” director and producer Bryan Singer have stunned Hollywood into relative silence. I say “relative silence” because, unless he’s a Catholic priest, the relativist left’s false narrative is that a “gay” man is always the victim and never the victimizer.
Nonetheless, this latest episode has once again shined the spotlight on the long-established link between the homosexual lifestyle/movement and pedophilia – a link that, despite “progressive” denials to the contrary, is hiding in plain sight.
Egan has filed suit against Singer and several other high-profile Hollywood figures for homosexually assaulting him and other boys repeatedly at several “‘infamous‘ coke and twink pool parties” back when Egan was 15 and Singer was 32. (In the “LGBT” vernacular “twinks,” also called “chicken,” are highly sought-after underage boys used for sex by adult “gay” men.)
Egan’s claims eerily mirror those of former child actor Corey Feldman who similarly alleged last year that such homosexual abuse is rampant, even systemic, in Hollywood.
But are these allegations really that shocking? Regrettably, the overwhelming weight of the evidence indicates that the abuse runs rampant well beyond just Hollywood.
To be sure, not all homosexuals are pedophiles. Yet a grossly disproportionate number of them are. I don’t write this to be insensitive, “hateful,” intolerant or “homophobic.”
It’s “just the facts, Ma’am.”
Consider, for instance, a study published in the left-leaning Archives of Sexual Behavior of over 200 convicted pedophiles and pederasts. It found that “86 percent of offenders against males described themselves as homosexual or bisexual.” This demonstrates, as notes Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council, that “homosexual or bisexual men are approximately 10 times more likely to molest children than heterosexual men.”
This makes perfect sense when coupled with another 2001 study in the same peer-reviewed publication. It found that nearly half of all “gay”-identified men who participated in research were molested by a homosexual pedophile as boys: “46 percent of homosexual men and 22 percent of homosexual women reported having been molested by a person of the same gender. This contrasts to only 7 percent of heterosexual men and 1 percent of heterosexual women reporting having been molested by a person of the same gender.”
The connection between homosexual abuse and “gay identity” is undeniable. Although clearly not all “gay”-identified men and women abuse children, or were abused as children, the verifiable reality is that an alarmingly high percentage of them do and were. As with most forms of abuse, the cycle is both circular and vicious. “Born that way?” Not so much. “Made that way?” Sadly, it appears so.
But of equal concern is the fact that many of the most prominent “LGBT” activists across the globe have either overtly endorsed, or given their implicit approval of, what the left euphemistically calls “intergenerational intimacy” (read: child rape).

Or remember Kevin Jennings, President Obama’s “safe school czar” and founder of the sexual extremist group GLSEN?
Wrote the Washington Times of Jennings in 2009:
“A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an ‘older man.’ At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama’s ‘safe school czar.’ …
“In this one case in which Mr. Jennings had a real chance to protect a young boy from a sexual predator, he not only failed to do what the law required but actually encouraged the relationship.”
Jennings later lied about the encounter until audio surfaced of him bragging on it. “I looked at [the boy],” he quipped, “and said, ‘You know, I hope you knew to use a condom.’”
Still, this pattern of homosexual abuse and facilitation of such abuse by the “LGBT” movement is nothing new.
Take Jennings hero Harry Hay. Hay is considered the “founding father” of the modern “gay rights” movement. Among other things, he has been honored as an “icon” for “LGBT History Month” by the entire homosexual activist community.
Not surprisingly, Hay was a child rape enthusiast and avid supporter of the pedophile North American Man/Boy Love Association, or NAM/BLA. In 1983, while keynoting a NAM/BLA event, Hay said the following:
“It seems to me that in the gay community the people who should be running interference for NAM/BLA are the parents and friends of gays. Because if the parents and friends of gays are truly friends of gays, they would know from their gay kids that the relationship with an older man is precisely what 13-, 14-, and 15-year-old kids need more than anything else in the world.”
Or take “LGBT” martyr Harvey Milk, a sexual predator known to have statutorily raped, repeatedly, a drug-addicted, teenage, runaway boy. Milk’s punishment? The Obama administration just awarded him an honorary USPS postage stamp.
Am I the only one who sees the pattern here? Has the goddess of “tolerance” really driven the world completely blind with madness?
If consistency holds, and these allegations against Bryan Singer prove true (the evidence suggests they well may), I’ll wager he ends up with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the next keynote at the annual HRC Gala.
I’ll also wager that, either way, we’ll soon begin seeing more “intergenerational sex” aficionados “coming out of the closet.”
Welcome to the bottom of the slippery slope.
