Scientists Uncover Eternal Truth Without knowing How It GOD There

Common Sense Commentary: Light is something. It has a chemical content. It has a vitamin content. It has an illuminating content. It has a warming content. It has a purifying content. It has a soothing content. Light is something! Darkness is absolutely nothing except the absence of light. "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." John 8:12.

God turned on the lights in His Creation laboratory by speech recognition technology, which He also invented,  when He said, "Let there be light ..... and there was light". Gen.1:3.  He didn't need light to see what He was going to create that first day of Earth science, biology, botany, zoology, oceanography and physics ... but He wanted the host of angel beings and the entire universe to witness this new miracle. He made several fantastic things that week, one of which was the most amazing and magnificent of all His creations ... some little doll like creatures in His own "image and likeness", a male version and a female version. Within these two unique little human versions of himself, God embedded the most phenomenal reproductive science that would create millions of similar human creatures, all in "His image and likeness" and that of their two parents. They would come into existence with life, for eternity, at the precise moment their human father's DNA touched their mother's DNA in this miracle of God's reproductive science.

God who began creation with a burst of infinite, universal light, created human life with a finite burst of light... and here is another of many verifications that God the Creator, is behind it all. This tiny miracle speaks with universal sized volume to a dumbfounded scientific community. Only God could do this. Don't tell me it was an accident of "nature". That theory only proves a kind of intellectual blindness. RB

Virginia Democrat Gov. Puts 206,000 Convicted Felons Back On Voting Register

Common Sense Commentary: The Democrat Governor's action this week nullifies the common state law that disqualifies convicted felons from voting. This action returns Virginia felon's, rapists and murderers included, to now be qualified to vote in Virginia.  I have four comments. (1) He has resorted to Obama's tactics of by-passing the Virginia Congress and Citizens of Virginia by Executive Order. Why? (2) Disqualifying felons from voting dates back to when most felons were white, not black, and had nothing to do with voters who happened to be black. (3) Therefore the Democrat Governor lies when he claims his decision was made because that law's purpose was to "Suppress African American voting power". (4) By that reasoning the Governor is plainly, but unintentionally, admitting two otherwise unmentionable facts which Democrats, News Media and even Republicans avoid like the plague, though true. What are those two documented facts? Dare I say it? .... The large majority of convicted felons are either black or vote Democrat, or both. (Google the subject and see). Would the good Governor have given back voting rights, at this late hour, when the Presidency is in the balance, to a bunch of conservative Republican voters? If you can't answer that honestly, please take me off of your "friends" list and let me know so I can do the same. RB

McAuliffe restores voting rights for 206K ex-felons; GOP calls it move to boost Clinton


BY GRAHAM MOOMAW Richmond Times


Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order Friday restoring the voting rights of 206,000 felons, a sweeping action the governor said was aimed largely at rectifying Virginia's "long and sad history" of suppressing African-American voting power.

The move, coming in a presidential election year, outraged Republicans who accused McAuliffe of abusing his power to help longtime ally Hillary Clinton win a battleground state by putting more likely Democratic voters on the books.

The governor's order applies to all violent and nonviolent felons who had finished their sentence and supervised release as of Friday even those who have not applied for a restoration of rights. Previous Virginia governors have restored rights on an individual basis, but none have done it for an entire category of offenders with one pen stroke.

No Longer Should You Wonder What Kind Of Man He Is

Common Sense Commentary: For about 2655 days Obama has been President. If his World Changing, America destroying actions haven't yet exposed his true nature to you, you are either in agreement of his carnage or oblivious to right and wrong. RB

No Longer Should You Wonder 
What Kind Of Traitor He Is
Author, The Facts

By all accounts, Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him.

Harold’s full life was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward. And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in  the news?

Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army.

On Aug. 5, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors.

It has been a tradition that the president attends the funeral of generals and flag officers killed in the line of duty. Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a major general killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.

While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. The vice president wasn’t there either. Neither was the secretary of defense. Flags were not even lowered to half staff.

Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was at best a thug. In the minutes before his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck Officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone.

Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown’s funeral! Obama would not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a thug.

When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing  down Soviet communism, died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral.

The snub was not missed by the British.

When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House.

But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, Obama ordered all flags be flown at half mast.

There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course. A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.
____________________________

And now we can add his refusal to attend the funeral of one of America's greatest sons, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.  No longer should you wonder what kind of man he is. We all now know. Every action he has taken as President has been either wrongheaded, evil or treasonous.  RB

Nov. Election Is The Last Hope To Restore America's "Shining City On A Hill"

Common Sense Commentary: Man made calamities seem to compound the negative effects of natural calamities and visa versa. As the old timers defined it, "When it rains it pours". Individuals, families, cities and nations are subject to this phenomenon. I'm reminded of a young man I know who started out pretty good but made a few bad choices and set off what seems a lifetime of bad decisions and experiences. As someone said, "He was an accident waiting to happen". Everything he put his hand to broke, backfired, disintegrated or disappeared. That seems to be what happened to Cuba and Venezuela and is now happening to the United States.  Everything about Cuba is a junk yard wreck except free education and a few great athletes. Venezuela and the U.S. were indeed shining cities on a hill throughout the Americas until Politicians and Presidents pushed them off that hill on the wheels of Socialism down the long track to national and moral destruction.  Here is a brief description of Venezuela today and a smaller version of where our own nation is headed. RB

Yellow Water, Dirty Air, Power Outages,
No Toilet Paper: Venezuela Hits New Low
Bloomberg News

Ash and dust clouds are making Caracas sick as El Nino hits Poor water quality and low dams are adding to health concerns. The tap in her apartment yields water only every two weeks. It comes out yellow. Her 8-month-old granddaughter is ill. And as Yajaira Espinoza, a 55-year-old hairdresser, made her way down the halls of Caracas university hospital on Friday, Zika cases evident in the rooms around her, a dense ash-filled smog enveloped the city. "I am so sorry for my daughter, because I know she suffers silently," she said. "This situation is hard." It has been an exceptionally painful year for Venezuelans, suffering from violent crime, chronic shortages, plummeting oil prices on which they depend, declining health and fractured government. Yet this past week it seemed to reach a new low. A kind of resigned misery spread across a city that had once been the envy of Latin America.
_______________________________

My Comment:
Yes, before political corruption changed the course of Venezuela and Hugo Chavez brought his United Socialist Party to power in Venezuela, it was, as Reagan said of the U.S., "A shining city set on a hill", but it was the South American version of Free Enterprise and National success. Chavez's "Hope and Change", as was Obama's, was Socialism and a one party system of government. Wikipedia says of Chavez .... Hugo Ch├ívez, was a Venezuelan politician who served as the 64th President of Venezuela from 1999 to 2013. He was also leader of the Fifth Republic Movement from its foundation in 1997 until 2007, when it merged with several other parties to form the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), which he led until 2012.

And this from CNN Money News

Venezuela's money is nothing more than a greasy napkin to one of its citizens. 

A photo posted on Reddit Monday has gone viral. It showed a man holding his empanada with a $2 Venezuelan bolivar bill as a napkin. The post has already generated over 1,770 comments. One bolivar is literally worth less than a penny on the popular, unofficial exchange rate market. Venezuela's economy is in shambles and basic goods like napkins are hard to come by. Earlier this year, officials from Trinidad and Tobago allegedly offered to send tissue paper to Venezuela in exchange for oil.

First Detroit.... Now Chicago, "The Town Billy Sunday Couldn't Shut Down"

Is Turning In That Direction

Common Sense Commentary: I report on this trend, of the rich leaving U.S. cities like Detroit and Chicago, not because I am concerned with the rich but with those left in these cities who are not rich .... and can't leave. Especially those who have not caused their cities to become dangerous and disintegrating "hell holes". Absence of the rich may not seem like a great loss, but with their departure, to the same degree, goes jobs and tax revenues, further weakening those left behind. I write on the subject with no sympathy whatever for the Liberal Democrat Politicians in these cities who have, by their greed, corruption and dishonesty destroyed their cities. My concern is primarily the direction of the trend within what was once the most wonderful, successful and Christian nation in the world. These political blood suckers have, like gluttonous, human termites, eaten out the foundations of their cities and left crumbling shells unfit for honest human habitation. And yes, through ignorance, the majority of those left to suffer .... elected those parasites into public office and brought it upon themselves.  But as damaging as ignorance is, it is not nearly so bad as corrupt and evil intelligence, which is not unique in the halls of political power in Detroit and Chicago, but is present also in other large cities and even worse in our National Government. Washington DC a prime example. Detroit and Chicago are the beginning of a national trend... in the same direction ..... down. RB


Chicago Tribune Reports
Millionaires Leaving Chicago....
Racial Tension And Rising Crime

Millionaires are leaving Chicago more than any other city in the United States on a net basis, according to a new report. 

About 3,000 individuals with net assets of $1 million or more .... moved from the city last year, with many citing rising racial tensions and worries about crime as factors in the decision, according to research firm New World Wealth ....(How many of you believe the departure of wealth from Detroit or Chicago will reduce "racial tensions and crime"? RB)

Chicago was among four cities worldwide with the biggest flight of millionaires. Paris saw the largest exodus. 

The richest people in Illinois: Seventeen Illinoisans made the 2016 Forbes 400 list of the nation's richest people. The French city lost 7,000, or 6 percent, of its millionaires, followed by Rome, which lost 5,000, or 7 percent.  Chicago was next, followed by Athens. 

Most of the millionaires who left Paris and Rome fled their countries, while Chicagoans moved elsewhere in the United States, said New World Wealth. Findings of the New World Wealth report are consistent with a Nielsen study released late last year that showed Chicago is losing large numbers of affluent African-Americans. 

The Nielsen report found that the Chicago area has fallen out of the top echelon of U.S. cities when it comes to the percentage of black households earning more than $100,000. In 2000, Chicago ranked seventh among the cities with the largest percentage of black households with income at that level or higher, but in 2015, Chicago had dropped out of the top 10. 

In the New World Wealth report, the country with the biggest net outflow of millionaires was France, with 10,000. It was followed by China, Italy, India and Greece. 

The countries with the biggest net inflows of millionaires were Australia, the United States, Canada, Israel, United Arab Emirates and New Zealand. 

Sources for the millionaire-migration study, the third done by New World Wealth, include: interviews with about 800 millionaires a year; interviews with migration experts, wealth managers and property agents; property sales records; and tracking of millionaire movements in the media.

Blind Visionary Cateractors ... A Conundrum Trio Doubters

Common Sense Commentary: Agnostics, Evolutionists, Atheists ... blind visionary cateractors (my word),  consider themselves logical, thinking realists. They worship science, but pervert it to align with their own opinions. That kind of preconceived "science" is said to be "science falsely so called" in 1 Tim.6:20.
Since the word "science" means "A systematically organized body of knowledge on a particular subject", it cannot be twisted to conform with personal opinion and still be true science. All true science is God's area of authority and creation and is eternally set in His infinite understanding.

The Agnostic is at least semi-honest in his more or less neutral position which simply says, "I don't know if there is a God or not".  He feels that is a safe position which avoids being "presumptuously" religious or "belligerently" Atheist. The first is too unsophisticated and the second could be self-destructive.

An Evolutionist may be an Agnostic, an Atheist, a believer in some sort of slow moving Creator, or even a "professing" Christian. Many "professing" religionists claim to believe in God and Evolution. They are pseudo "Theo-evolutionists" (God evolved it). They are just intelligent enough to recognize the irrefutable existence of an "intelligent" Creator, but can't stomach His Genesis account. They feel it is unsophisticated to believe in the Genesis seven day record of creation. It seems more scientifically intelligent, to them, that a God who created the infinite universe quadrillions of quadrillions of times bigger than Earth with a single Big Bang, couldn't also have created this speck of dirt we live on that is a million times smaller than our own Sun ... which itself is a very small star ... invisible from the Milky Way. I have more respect for the uncertainty of an Agnostic (no knowledge of) than for a so called Theo-evolutionist (God evolved it). At least the Agnostic says he doesn't know.

Then there is the Atheist (no God). Here we have a blind, visionary cateractor, with a finite little brain weighing as much as a dozen eggs or small cantaloupe, who looks up at the heavens full of stars, each visible one larger than our sun which, itself,  is a million times larger than Earth, and pugnaciously concludes there is no Creator of all that. It all just accidentally happened with a "Big Bang" explosion which blew all those billions of stars, all larger than our sun, into infinite space  including quadrillions of quadrillions of planets, meteors, and grains of dirt ... one of which is our Earth. A grain of sand in comparison with any visible star.

So what is a cateractor?
"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." Matt.15:14.

"Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel." Matt.23:24.

The reason every race of people, every different grouping, every creed and color and every tribe of people, since the beginning of time, has looked at themselves, the Earth and the stars of heaven and said, "There is a Creator God somewhere", is obvious. Even the most primitive savage knew it and even Einstein knew it because there is no other honest, logical, reasonable answer. And once a person has admitted a Creator, the next step is, "Why did He do it?" "Who is He?" and "What does He expect of me?" So the search of mankind for the true God begins.
That is why He gave us a Bible with a few Prophets, a few Apostles, enough true Preachers and many Christian Witnesses ... with clear vision and honest answers to the "Why, Who and What" of the universe and our existence. RB

Cashless Society To Stop Criminality? A Contradiction Worthy Liberals

Common Sense Commentary: Food for the vultures is poison for the sheep. One man's lust is another man's nausea. The Dictator's hope is the peasant's horror. The peasants hope is the Dictator's horror. What one woman aspires to another woman dreads. What a Socialist sees as justice the producer sees as criminal.
The only rule book which supersedes all others and realigns human, human contradictions with the Creator and God of Truth ... is the Bible. RB

Dr Marc Faber was born in Zurich, Switzerland. He went to school in Geneva and Zurich. He studied Economics at the University of Zurich and, at the age of 24, obtained a PhD in Economics magna cum laude. He has been known as "The Cash Prophet", in Germany, for 50 years. His bio is too long to print but he is publisher of The Gloom, Boom And Doom Report. Here is his view of the impossible impracticality of a cashless society. Though it will be done. RB

Marc Fabor:
”Let’s say you and I live in a small town of a thousand people and suddenly the government says, “No more cash.” Say, I’m the baker and you’re the butcher, and a friend of ours is the pharmacist. We can then barter among each other and effect the balances every month or every 3 months and so forth. Then, some kind of paper money comes back up in the form of vouchers. So the war on cash would have the exact opposite effect as intended. You will have a voucher system in every small city, and even in big cities, some smart people will develop the voucher system.
So instead of having just one currency, paper currency, you’ll have hundreds of paper currencies. Number two; if they want to really launch a cashless society, they would have to take your gold and silver away. That, in some countries, will simply not fly. In other countries, a cashless society is simply not practical because 80% of the population doesn’t have a bank account and doesn’t have cash to start with. So in my view, this cashless business is going to fail very badly. The argument is, of course, “Oh, we want to move into a cashless society because we want to prevent criminality.” This is all nonsense. They want to move into a cashless society so they can control you and tax you” Marc Faber
My Comment:
So will our government and most of the rest of the governments of the world try it? Of course they will. Just as they have tried over and over again by creating money out of thin air expecting it to result in a booming economy. Just as they have dished out free money to half the population expecting them to spend, spend, spend so as to stimulate our nation, encourage everyone to get a job, hold down inflation and make everyone equally rich. Just as they legalized the aborting of half the nations babies, for the past 43 years, and now are trying to import enough foreign immigrants to become taxpayers in place of those aborted babies. But half those immigrants don't pay taxes, they consume them. Just as they have adjusted our laws in favor of the guilty as opposed to the innocent and filled our prisons with jobless drug addicts who had nothing else to do but smoke it, inject it, sell it to others, hate themselves, and hate you and everyone else. I could go on with this list of stupid, evil economic and immoral government idiocy for days, but I will let you finish it. Just don't use any cuss words til you can get out to the barn. RB

Charles Krauthammer: Maybe The Best Columnist, Reporter In America

Common Sense Commentary: Here is one of the finest columnists is America. He is an investigative reporter, scrupulously honest, bold as David against evil Goliaths and courageous in his commentary. He even talks back to Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. You have seen him many times on TV interviews, mostly Fox News. He is one of my favorites, and a real patriot. RB

    Columnist Charles Krauthammer, MD is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, author, political commentator, and physician. His weekly column is syndicated to more than 400 newspapers worldwide. Wikipedia

KRAUTHAMMER ON THE CLINTONS

The Clinton Foundation is "organized crime" at it's finest, and we are financing it. Here is a good, concise summary of how the Clinton Foundation works as a tax free international money laundering scheme. It may eventually prove to be the largest political criminal enterprise in U.S. history.

This is a textbook case on how you hide foreign money sent to you and repackage it to be used for your own purposes. All tax free. Here's how it works:

1. You create a separate foreign "charity." In this case one in Canada.

2. Foreign oligarchs and governments, then donate to this Canadian charity. In this case, over 1,000 did - contributing mega millions. I'm sure they did this out of the goodness of their hearts, and expected nothing in return. (Imagine Putin's buddies waking up one morning and just deciding to send untold millions to a Canadian charity).

3. The Canadian charity then bundles these separate donations and makes a massive donation to the Clinton Foundation.

4. The Clinton Foundation and the cooperating Canadian charity claim Canadian law prohibits the identification of individual donors.

5. The Clinton Foundation then "spends" some of this money for legitimate good works programs. Unfortunately, experts believe this is on the order of 10%. Much of the balance goes to enrich the Clinton's, pay salaries to untold numbers of hangers on, and fund lavish travel, etc. Again, virtually all tax free, which means you and I are subsidizing it.

6. The Clinton Foundation, with access to the world's best accountants, somehow fails to report much of this on their tax filings. They discover these "clerical errors" and begin the process of re-filing 5 years of tax returns.

7. Net result -- foreign money, much of it from other countries, goes into the Clinton's pockets tax free and untraceable back to the original donor. This is the textbook definition of money laundering.

Oh, by the way, the Canadian "charity" includes as a principal one Frank Giustra. Google him. He is the guy who was central to the formation of Uranium One, the Canadian company that somehow acquired massive U.S. uranium interests and then sold them to an organization controlled by Russia. This transaction required U.S. State Department approval, and guess who was Secretary of State when the approval was granted. As an aside, imagine how former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell feels. That poor schlep is in jail because he and his wife took $165,000 in gifts and loans for doing minor favors for a guy promoting a vitamin company. Not legal but not exactly putting U.S. security risk. Sarcasm aside, if you're still not persuaded this was a cleverly structured way to get unidentified foreign money to the Clinton's, ask
yourself this:

Why did these foreign interests funnel money through a Canadian charity? Why not donate directly to the Clinton Foundation? Better yet, why not donate money directly to the people, organizations and countries in need?

This is the essence of money laundering and influence peddling. Now you know why Hillary's destruction of 30,000 e-mails was a risk she was willing to take.

Bill and Hillary are devious, unprincipled, dishonest and criminal, and they are Slick! Warning: They could be back in the White House in January 2017. Don't let it happen. Remember, most people are not well informed. You must inform and educate them.

Warm Wishes and May God Bless America

God's Creation Is A Perfect Certainty, Including You

Common Sense Commentary: The universe you look up to on a star studded night is a magnificent display of the perfect, created order of Him who said in Genesis one ... "Let there be" and His Word went out and created it. The Universe is a perfectly organized phenomenon as is the earth and every other thing God created, oceans, animals, vegetation, minerals, fresh water, oil, gas, and the atmosphere. Only humans were created in the image and likeness of God... including a free will to do good or bad. RB

When GOD solves our problems, we have faith in HIS abilities.  When GOD doesn't solve our problems HE has faith in our abilities.  God's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs. Those of the canary in 14 days; Those of the barnyard hen in 21 days; Eggs of ducks and geese in 28 days; Those of the mallard in 35 days; The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week and the number of perfection or completion.

God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. . . . The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction.  No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily. The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.

How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation! Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind. Each orange has an even number of segments. -Each ear of corn has an even number of rows. Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains. Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of  bananas, and  each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number which creates its desired shape.

The waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty six to the minute in all kinds of weather. All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks.

God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain specified times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed.

The lives of each of us may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if we will only entrust Him with it. If we try to regulate everything about our life, we will live in frustration and it will only be a mess and a failure. We must learn to yield to the perfect will of God. That is a free will decision we all must make.

Only God, who made our brain, heart, and body can successfully guide them to a beneficial and desired end.

"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse." Rom.1:20.

Two Moral Slugs Vs Two Common Sense Governors On Bathroom Separation Of The Sexes

Who would have thought this would 
ever be an issue in America?

Common Sense Commentary: So when the Governor of North Carolina signed into law a bill protecting women and children from having to share all bathroom facilities and showers with men, the Liberal Governors of New York and Connecticut took punitive action against North Carolina and influenced the NBA to do the same. This appears to be just another example of Trump's now famous boast about New York Values as though his home state has some especially high moral standards. I tell you, dear friends, with absolute certainty that the Liberal, Socialist agenda is the thread that runs from Lucifer's gut in Eden for 6000 years throughout the Earth to every vile, filthy act of human depravity right up to this latest trend of antichristic apostasy. It is so opposed to common sense and integrity that you would think any idiot would know better, but no, not in New York or most of the states attached to it. I can tell you that I am proud of Gov. Pat McCroy of N.C. and my own Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott who recently signed a similar bill to protect Texas women and children. Write your Governor and ask him to follow their example.

Here is the article in the Texas Values Newsletter which declares itself  as ....

"Standing For Faith Family And Freedom In Texas"
Their site is located at 
http://txvalues.org/


Common sense can get you in a lot of trouble these days!

Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina is under a lot of pressure from activists on the left -- all because he signed a bill into law that protects women and children from being forced to share bathrooms with men. The widely supported N.C. law stops men from going into women’s restrooms, showers, and locker rooms, and it stopped a dangerous bathroom ordinance in Charlotte, similar to the law Houston voters resoundingly defeated at the polls last year, from going into effect.

In response, the Governors of New York & Connecticut have banned state travel to North Carolina, and the NBA is threatening to move the All Star game out of Charlotte.

Apparently, the Governors of New York & Connecticut are okay with men being allowed access to women’s restrooms and showers. Meanwhile, North Carolina Governor McCrory believes in common sense and protecting the privacy and safety of women and young girls in the Tar Heel State.

Right now, it is important to join with our friends in North Carolina, and to honor Governor McCrory for doing the right thing. (Check out Governor McCrory’s strong stand for common sense when it comes to bathrooms: Watch here)

Would I Join The Military Today? Not With This Commander In Chief

Every Time I See Him Salute, I Get Nauseous.

Common Sense Commentary: Here is a boil-over of the military's molten slag melt pot at the heart of the mill. The real warriors, trained and ready to die for America are being fired or leaving the military in droves. Military suicides are increasing. It is being brought on by an irresponsible, executive management who is more interested in appeasing masculine women, effeminate men and Liberal idiots than in protecting our nation, killing the savages, decapitating the decapitators and defeating our sworn enemies before they destroy us.... Which they are determined and prepared to do. And what is the Left-wing think tank proposing? Draft women. Meanwhile, on the civilian front, thousands of our producers, Patriots and tax payers, have also had enough, and are abandoning their citizenship and leaving the country for friendlier nations who welcome that kind of immigrants from the U.S. of A. Thank God for the remnants of our military and law enforcement who are still willing to bear arms in our defense. But, how long can they endure the abuse? RB

This from

US Defense Watch

At the Pentagon, General Chaos is in Charge

By Ray Starmann
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d2/The_Pentagon_US_Department_of_Defense_building.jpg
Recently the US military was humiliated by the Iranians before a worldwide audience.
The surrender of two US Navy vessels of war and their crews to the Iranians without firing so much as a shot and the subsequent and sickening apology by the commanding officer, speaks volumes about the current fighting spirit, training and state of readiness of the US military in 2016.
The conduct of the US Navy officer in charge, Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Ash Carter was nothing less than a complete and utter disgrace.
No doubt the order to surrender came from the Pentagon; and at the Pentagon, General Chaos is in charge.
At the Pentagon, General Chaos is a destroyer; a social engineering Visigoth intent on wreaking utter havoc and destruction on the Armed Forces of the United States. General Chaos will not rest until the fighting spirit and the combat readiness of the US military is reduced to a Third World status.
Left-wing loonies have been trying to change the US military for forty years. The relatively all male, macho culture, with its unique camaraderie and .... rough and tumble lifestyle was anathema to the liberal mindset.
After all, if every other bedrock of America could be feminized and paralyzed by political correctness, why couldn’t the military be next? With its zero profit incentives and personnel whose careers ride on rigidly pleasing the boss, the military was a ripe target of opportunity and perhaps the last great classical institution of America to be hen pecked and destroyed by the radical left wing nuts.
Since the 1970’s, the Gloria Steinem’s, the Patricia Schroeder’s, the Geraldine Ferraro’s, the Hillary’s all had some hand in minutely altering the way the US military did business. By the dawn of the 1990’s and the advent of the Great Draft Dodger, Bill Clinton, the foundation was laid for the beginnings of the demolition project. Women would be allowed to fly jets, combat helicopters and to serve in support units that would put them in Harm’s Way. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was implemented across the services. Coed basic training became the norm for Army support personnel, the Navy and the Air Force.
The Clinton Administration wanted to do even more damage to the military, but there was enough push back from the military that their efforts were stymied, albeit temporarily.
But, the cracks in the dam were already beginning to appear.
Flash forward to 2016, and the Obama Administration, where the systematic, calculated Armageddon of the US military is continuing like some kind of cultural Marxist blitzkrieg.
Since 2008, the US military has been subjected to edicts that have authorized open homosexuality and transgenders to join the military. On April 1st, women will be able to serve in the Crown Jewels of the military; the combat arms branches and special operations.
An inordinate amount of training days, weeks and months are now wasted on sensitivity training, physical fitness while wearing pregnancy simulators, marching in red high heels and putting out breastfeeding and lactation memos to worldwide commands.
Recently, Ray Mabus ordered the Marines and Navy to replace every male job title with a gender neutral nomenclature. Henceforth, infantryman will now be infantry person or perhaps infantry thing or infantry it. The insanity knows no bounds.
Hundreds of generals, admirals and other high-ranking officers have been fired or forced to resign in a purge not seen since Nazi Germany’s Night of the Long Knives.
Only last week, Ash Carter announced that he is considering demoting American hero, General David Petraeus.
To do the dirty work of the White House and the radical feminist lobbyists, the Obama Administration needed henchmen, bureaucratic sycophants, modern day Fouquets who would rubber stamp every bit of insanity coming forth from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Enter, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, former Secretary of the Army John McHugh, the current Secretary of the Army Eric K. Fanning and retired General Martin Dempsey.
Obama and Carter and Dempsey and Mabus and the rest of the wrecking crew have been able to get away with it all because the military as an institution is not as strong internally, morally, psychologically and spiritually as it once was. While the enlisted personnel and lower-ranking company grade and field grade officers are solid, the senior leaders of the US military have failed to stand up for what they know is inherently right.
The generals and the admirals who remain at their jobs in 2016 are there for one reason, they know how to keep quiet and say nothing as the political correctness angel of death passes by them each night.
But, their reticence to speak up, to put their feet down, to defend the greatness of an institution that is 240 years old has severely weakened the US military as a whole.
We are weak and our enemies know it. This is not to say individuals in the military are weak or don’t know their jobs. But, as a whole, the US military, under Obama has lost its edge.
Where is all of this going to end? It’s going to end in disaster; in wars lost, in lives plundered, in our nation put in mortal danger because a perfect storm of left wing radicals and cowardly senior leaders came together to create a US military that won’t be able to fight its way out of a wet paper bag.
Want to see the future of the US military in war? You already have two weeks ago. What happened in the Persian Gulf is a harbinger of defeat that is coming to the Armed Forces of this great nation unless changes are made, changes that can only be made by a President Trump or Cruz or Rubio.
The Shining City on the Hill is in danger, because we are losing the one force that has always defended it, the United States Military.

Extreme Testing Works Endurance, Perseverance , Experience... And Only Then ...True Success

Common Sense Commentary: Human history records no normal or consistent success, survival, arrival or worthy accomplishment apart from planning, hard work, immense effort, determination, struggle and pain. That has always been the price of honest gain since God told Adam, "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread ...." Gen.3:9. There is benefit and reward in difficulty and tribulation. "Tribulation worketh hupomone...." which is endurance, continuance, perseverance... and only then, out of that, the "experience" which produces "hope" and all true accomplishment (Rom.5:3-4). Experience speaks louder than assumption, anticipation or self assurance.

The Donner Party was a group of  Eastern Americans who had a dream of selling out and moving west, across the continent of wilderness, rivers, deserts and mountains, through Indian territory, and a thousand other hazards, to California. A wagon train was formed and they left their homes, relatives and friends  and set off with all their worldly goods, essentials, and far too much non-essential stuff, in covered wagons their horses, mules or oxen could barely pull. After months of hard travel, weariness and discouragement, they grew slower and slower. The women and children especially were so tired they lingered longer each morning and tarried long at noon stops. The men also wasted time and wouldn't allow themselves to be pushed along. Autumn and Winter were drawing nigh, but they finally arrived at a point in the western desert where they met a stranger who told them of a short-cut across the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Some of them wanted to stick to the known trail around most of the mountains to the right. But the majority wanted to take this new route over the mountains to "save time". They were worn out as were their animals and wagons, and they had dallied away so much time that agreement was reached to take the short-cut. To their chagrin, when they got up in the Sierra Nevada, there was a horse trail, but no wagon trail there. They had to cut trees and brush to make a way and double team their wagons to ascend mountain passes. They were horrified but it was too late go go back to the old trail. Blizzards caught them far into the tops of the mountains. They were stuck there, with little food, no shelter and no hope of getting through to Sacramento.

During the long months of winter they suffered constant temperatures far below zero, starvation, sickness, many deaths and even cannibalism of the dead. Their experience was one of the most terrifying, desperate, starvation and survival stories in the history of America. Those few who survived were finally rescued in the waning days of winter and carried to Sacramento where they recuperated and lived out their lives.  They were never the same.

One of the survivors was a 16 year old girl who wrote her best friend back in the East, and ended her letter with two hard earned lessons arising from her deadly experience. To the best of my memory, here is what she told her friend... "Two things I learned, Sarah, never dally around but hurry right along, and don't never take no short cuts."

The Donner Party, those who survived, knew a lot more about crossing the continent in a covered wagon ... after the fact than before they started. It's called EXPERIENCE and is gained only by .... the long exposure of ignorant self assurance to the reality that "tribulation works" ... endurance/perseverance. When they departed their homes back east, yes, they planned, prepared and prayed... but they didn't have the experience required to plan, prepare and pray sufficiently. What they gained through the "experience" is better planning, preparing and praying ... as well as greater precaution, absolute punctuality, perseverance and preservation or time, energy and resources. They also learned a lot more about the God of all these attributes and where they come from.

Three Principle Points of critical decision derived from my own experience:

1. The first critical decision toward progress in reaching a worthy goal or destination is not the ease or difficulty or speed at which you travel, but it is always moving in the right direction.

2. The second critical decision in any endeavour is to stay on the track, trail or target and keep moving no matter how slowly the difficulty restricts your advance. There is great distance in a thousand thousand baby steps.

3. The third critical decision in the accomplishment of  your goal, destination or dream is, do not habitually linger and tarry around wasting precious time, and avoid short-cuts, 95 percent of which result in lost time ... or worse. Stay on the trail. Usually the long way around a mountain saves time and trouble.... if the trail is there.  The trail is there for a reason. Many trails evolved over hundreds of years by thousands of experienced walkers. Do not waste your time, energy and resources on short-cuts or non-essentials.

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein." Jeremiah 6:16.

I Saw It With My Own Eyes, Heard It, Smelled It And Tasted It... Putrid

Eat the meal before you. Don't look for a better one at the Outhouse Cafe.

Common Sense Commentary: In 195a0-51 I fought a war with Atheistic Socialism known as Communism, in Korea. First against the North Korean Communists, supplied by the Russian Communists, and then against the Chinese Communists. I saw hundreds of executed civilians in the ditches of the roads leading back to North Korea in the wake of the Communist retreat from South Korea. Later, when the Marine Corps left North Korea, 98,000 North Korean civilians followed us out of North Korea and boarded our ships to South Korea. They had all the Socialism they could take and were starving to death under a dictatorial Socialist Regime. The entire nation was a disaster. Many years later, Socialism had finally bankrupted the Soviet Socialist Union, and Russia declared Perestroika, and opened the door in the Communist wall to outsiders. Buddy Nichols, Fred Good and I took a load of Russian language Bibles through that narrow door into the heart of the beast. We were among the first Westerners allowed in. We flew on Royal Romanian Airlines into the dying USSR where we saw the shabby, unmaintained, broken down airplanes, baggage handling equipment, streets, stores, cars and hotels throughout the several nations of the Soviet Union.... But they had free education.... to the chosen few. You just couldn't buy a coughdrop, toothbrush or practically anything else but 5 squares of toilet paper from a woman in the restroom where there were a row of holes in the floor along the wall.  So don't you idiotic smart alec supporters of Bernie Sanders or Hillary tell me about the "Superior Socialist System" of government. You have no idea how utterly stupid you reveal yourselves to be.

Here is the testimony of a man who was raised under that Communist Utopia so many morons believe in and want in America ... Your lunacy is terminal. RB


From The College Fix Paper

Professor raised under communism explains academics’ love of socialism – and why they’re wrong


The difference between ideas and facts is lost on leftist scholars 

Today Professor Florin Curta is a professor in medieval history and archaeology at the University of Florida, but his road to the sunny vistas of north-central Florida came by way of communist-controlled Romania, where growing up he grappled with empty grocery stores, power outages, and an oppressive government that discouraged creativity and free enterprise.

Curta grew up under the iron-fisted regime of Romanian President Nicolae Ceau?escu, a dictatorship characterized by unrelenting state-control, extreme poverty and widespread dilapidation and deprivation. Ceau?escu was overthrown and executed by firing squad in 1989, leaving his country in shambles.

Curta, meanwhile, managed to earn his bachelor’s degree from the University of Bucharest in 1988, and left his country in 1993, having been invited to pursue a Ph.D. at Western Michigan University after delivering a speech before the International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Mich.

He hasn’t looked back. Discovering academic and personal freedom unlike anything he could have in post-Communist Romania, Curta permanently relocated to America.

“There’s a certain atmosphere in which scholarly thinking can grow in the United States that it cannot grow in any European country,” Curta said. “I left after communism collapsed, but it was a regime that left a deep, deep imprint on people’s minds. Even though there was no official communism in the government, a lot of people continued to think in communist ways, specifically in the academic world.”

Curta is one of the world’s most distinguished scholars in medieval history and archaeology – and is co-founder of the University of Florida’s medieval and early modern studies center, where he directs its certificate program.

He recently shared his experience growing up under a communist regime and discussed the rise of socialism in America during a phone interview with The College Fix:

Tell us about growing up in communist Romania. What was the quality of life?

Curta: Stores were completely empty. There was no food. There was a black market where you could buy some things, but obviously at much higher prices. Besides the fact that there was no food, every now and then electricity would be cut off in the apartment, at a sudden moment in time. You would not know when and for how long. Sometimes there was no running water at all, and there was no warm water at all. We’re talking about life in an urban environment, we’re talking about an apartment, not one or two, but thousands in which people lived in such conditions. I was in college in that time, and I remember actually studying in the library with gloves on my hands because it was so cold. So not a happy place.

Socialism appears to be a popularly embraced ideology in American academia. Why do you think this is? What is so tempting about this mindset?

FlorinCurtaCurta: I think that there’s an idealism that most people in academia, specifically in the humanities, share. We live in an era of ideological morass, especially with the collapse of communism that has left no room for those idealists in the academic world. No matter how you can prove that system doesn’t work, with an inclination to go that way perhaps because most people associate socialism with social justice, while the former is an ideology with concrete ideas and concrete historical experiences, while social justice is a very vague abstract notion.

You have to understand, the difference between ideas and facts is what is of major concern here. As my father used to say, it is so much easier to be a Marxist when you sip your coffee in Rive Gauche, left-bank Paris, than when living in an apartment under Ceau?escu, especially in the 1980s.

Why do you think socialist ideology has been gaining popularity with some Americans? Why do you think Democrat presidential candidate Bernie BernieStudentsSanders, whose platform is based-off of socialist ideas, gained such traction with the electorate, especially millennials?

Curta: First of all, I would not be willing to put a blanket on all of the population that is drawn toward that idea. It’s a matter of certain segments of that population, especially the young ones, and I think that has something to do with two factors, one of which is the distance in time between the real experience, the historical significance of communism. In other words, the parents of those young people who are now very enthusiastic about socialism and Bernie Sanders were those lived during the Cold War. So to them, socialism, or even more so communism, was a real threat. And they could see under their own eyes how that form of living was out there.

posterAlso the lack of historical knowledge. I would say the school system is responsible for that. You get courses at the university on the Holocaust, but you don’t get courses on the history of communism. Last time I checked, [it was estimated] 100 million people were killed under communism by various regimes in various parts of the world. That seems to have passed without a note in the academic world. I think that lack of prominence in the curriculum, in other words, not teaching what really happened, and the sheer ignorance about the disaster in terms of human cost, economic cost, in tragedy in general is responsible for this rosy picture of socialism.
