Challenge To Fox News’ Hannity, O’Rielly Etc

This is a challenge to Fox News team that I’m sure others have issued as well but the challenge is to get serious and expose Obama for what he really is. Check this Keywiki site to show and tell of his disgraceful connections.

I wonder if they have the courage or they just as bad as the left leaning media they are forever bashing for protecting Obama. Come on Fox, have you got the spine? Show some real guts or are you gutless wonders?

Newtown Massacre

I guess the blogosphere is running red hot with opinions regarding the Newtown, CT massacre which is understandable considering the seemingly callous nature surrounding the killer’s actions.Newtown Massacre

It does not matter that logic should need to enter the discussion surrounding the siren call for gun control which started within minutes with the US President overtly pushing for such in his crocodile tear filled eyes (he supports the barbaric murder of partial birth canal children but sheds tears over 6-7 year old children – condescending idiot) and of course the cacophony of stupefied voices coming from people in the media and entertainment circles who invariably either employ heavily armed guards or carry a side arm themselves. Just one word is sufficed to describe such – self-serving hypocrites.

It matters not to those with an irrational approach to the real cause of this and other such like tragedies that the first victim of the killer’s rampage was his mother who was an alleged “prepper” (an idiom for those preparing for some doomsday event that the entertainment media are fond of promoting to sell their sensationalist idiocy) with a stash of weapons and ammunition she and the killer regularly practiced with; or that she was struggling to find help for her Asperger afflicted son being reportedly reduced at times to lock him in the basement for protection. Who knows what flashed through his fragile mind when he found out that his mother was planning to have him institutionised? Maybe this was the trigger that caused him to let rip with such devastating consequences.

Oh, never mind, you liberal twits who want the 2nd Amendment nullified for your own selfish reason in that the law was working perfectly in this instance, for the killer was refused permission to purchase a fire arm by the authorities just days before because of his known mental state and maybe, just maybe, that caused a fit of rage due to denial and that he may have thought “everyone is out to get me” type thoughts.

Here is something else to consider: Connecticut has some of the strictest gun laws in the US that along with many other states prevents guns being carried on school premises even if they are trained in firearms use and also employed a lockout containment foyer much the same as banks use which meant he had: A) easy sitting duck targets and B) had to force his way into the complex. Maybe if someone had access to a firearm they may have had opportunity to avert the disaster at the foyer, for killers by and large do not like being shot at.

But the real elephant in the room in this woeful segment of USA history is nihilism. It is the progressive removal of God of the Bible from government, life, school, sport, entertainment et al that can be traced back to the mental state of people such as this and other killers in life. After all, if there is no God, then who are you to say what is evil and what is good? Yet, the moment such an evil spectacle like this occurs the very same people who want God removed from their life shout and scream evil, forgetting or simply ignorant that there cannot be anything evil unless there be that which is good. God is the epitome of good despite the atheist continuous straw man rant which means you do that which is contrary to His word such as murder then you are committing that which is evil.

I came across a blog that included these comments from a one “Nate13”. He hits the nail on the head about this event and other such events that have plagued the US in recent years and, might I add, in my own country of New Zealand as well as Scotland, England, Norway ad nauseam. Nate13 writes:

These events are products of sick, evil people in an increasingly sick culture that has no stomach for “outdated” concepts like absolute right and wrong. We believe if we could just pass enough well-worded laws, we could eliminate this behavior from society. We treat these tragedies as outputs, thinking that we can just tinker with the inputs enough to get our desired results.

For God’s sake, the bodies were still warm and we were already talking about piles upon piles of statistics, as if the problem of violent gun crime could be solved mathematically with some study or Congressional inquiry. I’m afraid that, absent the presence of morality in our discussions of these murders, we have no tools to solve the underlying problems except legalism and policy making. People will keep fixating on the problems with guns because we’ve become woefully inadequate at talking about problems inherent in humanity.

It always amuses me in pitying way when I hear people retreat even further into nihilism after an event like this by making that old appeal to the “Argument of Evil” which asks, “If there truly is a good god, why does he allow such evil deeds?” As if the very presence of evil invalidates the possibility or under-pinning for good!

Forgive my frustration, but what right do we have to even speak about evil in our society? We are so immersed in violence, greed, sex, instant gratification, and materialism that we’ve lost all sense of what evil even looks like. To know evil, you must first know good. And while we work ourselves into a righteous huff over “evil” for 2% of the year when these disgusting acts occur, for the other 98% we desperately try to rebel against all forms of conventional morality – that cramps our style, doesn’t it?

A child one minute before passing through the birth canal can have a pair of surgical scissors put through his or her brain without society batting an eye. A fully formed, breathing, crying, desperate, helpless baby who is the result of a botched abortion has no entitlement to life in parts of this “enlightened” Western world. And we talk about “evil”?

Government officials pass guns to cartels to slaughter civilians, and we get to talk about “evil”?

Corrupt businessmen get to use their connections to the power brokers in Washington to access public funds to bail out their billion dollar corporations (who went broke in part due to unbridled greed), and we sit here and talk about evil?

We can start talking about “evil” when we as a society find our lost sense of “good”. But we can’t relegate morality to the fringes, then demand to know where God was.

Well said, Nate13.

Thought for the week

The following video contains graphic images that may disturb.

So, you think this is all in the past, huh? Well think about this, all the regimes mentioned rose to power because a generation of lower socio-economic people wanted what the successful and affluent had.

Don’t think it would happen in the US, huh? Neither did the people of Russia, Germany, Cambodia, China etc.

Beware, Obama is playing a game of brinkmanship that will ultimately lay the blame on the successful and affluent of the US for its entry into a deep recession next year beginning February which will lead him to usurp Congress and assume emergency rule (why do you think his minions are stepping up their anti-gun rhetoric?).

Thought for the week

Joel B Pollak wrote the following article that appeared in Breitbart giving his opinion why the Republicans lost the election on November 6th. Although I am not a citizen of the USA I nonetheless take a keen interest in that country’s political scene because where the largest economy in the world goes so does little, insignificant New Zealand. I, like many Republicans, was aghast that the GOP lost even though I predicted such in April 2012. Still I fear for the state of the world come four more years of the stupidity that is housed in the White House.

 

10. Republican governors – In many of the important swing states–Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nevada–Republican governors who were elected in the Tea Party wave of 2010 had made such strides that it was difficult for Mitt Romney to gain traction against Obama by criticizing the state of the country. They did their jobs all too well.

9. Jimmy Carter – In recent years, the party held him at arm’s length, with his comments about “apartheid” in Israel and the uncomfortable parallels between his administration and Obama’s. But his grandson, James Carter IV, vindicated Carter and helped save Obama by finding Romney’s “47 percent” remark on a secret tape made at a fundraiser.
8. David Cameron and Boris Johnson – The current and purported future leader of the Conservative Party in Britain, who elevated Romney’s truthful remarks about poor security at the Summer Olympics into a major “gaffe.” Cameron and Johnson outdid each other in slamming Romney, and largely negated any benefit from his foreign trip.
7. Chris Christie – He offered excessive, effusive praise for Obama’s performance during Hurricane Sandy, and gave Obama the chance to play president in a 90-minute photo-op a week before the election. (In fact, federal efforts have been nearly as bad as during Hurricane Katrina, and Obama largely neglected Hurricane Isaac the month before.)
6. Candy Crowley – She had corrected Obama officials before on their distortions about Benghazi. Yet she robbed Romney of victory in the second debate when she weighed in–incorrectly–for Obama, who claimed he had called the attacks terrorism instead of lying to the world about an anti-Islam video. Benghazi was a dead issue after that.
5. George W. Bush – He was apparently responsible for everything that went wrong in the Obama presidency. But the Iraq War and the use of intense interrogation techniques–both opposed by Obama–yielded the intelligence that led to Osama bin Laden, allowing Obama to claim big success on national security despite an utterly failed foreign policy.
4. Ben Bernanke – The Bush-appointed head of the Federal Reserve gave the economy the appearance of being less-than-disastrous with his quantitative easing policies. By slipping vast quantities of new money into the economy, he propped up asset prices and helped Obama hide the failures of super-profligate Keynesianism and crony capitalism.
3. John Roberts – The Chief Justice was attacked by liberals, and by then-Senator Barack Obama, for years. He came under vicious attack as the Supreme Court considered Obamacare. Then he invented a way to uphold Obamacare, protecting the worst “achievement” of the Obama presidency and restoring vigor to the Obama campaign.
2. Todd Akin – He was a good congressman, mistreated by the Republican Party for his gaffe on rape and abortion, for which he apologized. Nevertheless, he cost himself the most winnable Senate pickup in the nation, and boosted what had been a pathetic “war on women” narrative by Democrats, who used him to hurt GOP candidates nationwide.
1. ORCA – It’s not yet entirely clear who was responsible for this get-out-the-vote debacle, which crashed on Election Day and left thousands of Romney volunteers doing nothing. The Obama campaign suffered a similar crash in 2008 and resolved not to let that happen again. The GOP failed to learn, and inadvertently suppressed its own vote.

Dishonest Propaganda

Hurricane Sandy has caused massive damage on the Eastern Seaboard of the USA over the past few days but not only that, it has also brought out of the wood work the global-warming alarmists who seek to use the disaster’s public attention to pedal their nonsensical and wanton money profiteering clap trap.

Last night New Zealand’s Television One’s News program Close Up interviewed an individual waiting to run the imminent New York Marathon who could not constrain herself from decrying the lack of global-warming coverage by the two Presidential candidates saying Sandy is clear evidence of such. Also the man sacked by the New Zealand Government’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research Dr. Jim Salinger who now pedals his alarmist theory in the USA also lay claim to Sandy being caused directly through the atmosphere being warmed by man’s discharge of CO2. This is blatant propaganda and pure ignorance of information which was released by the UK Meteorological Office and none other than the IPCC headquarters of global warming East Anglia University which both state categorically that there has been no global warming in the atmosphere for the past 16 years. The controversial head of the unit monitoring the earth’s atmosphere, Dr Phil “hide the decline” Jones fobbed the data off as a mere 16 year “plateau” obviously still clinging to the idea that global-warming is still real but just having a break. However, his contempory at Georgia Tech., Prof. Judith Curry, who by-the-way is normally on Prof. Jones’ side, disagrees with him saying the computer modelling used to show global-warming is “deeply flawed”. See this article for the report.

The point I am making is the lengths people will go to in order to promote their propaganda. They seize with relish the opportunity to spew forth what they believe to be true even though it is challenged and denied as truth by those who once spewed forth the tripe themselves.

 

It is like that when it comes to the Bible and its gospel message. A man who describes himself as one “Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal” went about “persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless” (Philippians 3:5-6). His murdering rampage was due because he felt he was abiding in the truth yet after being blinded by the “light from heaven” (Acts 9:3) he conceded he was wrong and that the law of Moses he so passionately defended as being the only law to justify one’s soul is now dead and buried having been “nailed to the cross” (Colossians 2:14). Yet, still, many today want to push the idea that the Old Law plays a part in the justification of one’s soul despite that stalwart apostle’s claim to the contrary: “But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster” (Galatians 3:23-25). He uses the adjectives “tutor” and “schoolmaster” to describe the Law of Moses which he says man is no longer subservient to. Paul concluded that the Law of Moses could not put right man’s soul from sin by saying “Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law” (Romans 3:28).

Folks, those that cling to the Law of Moses to justify their belief are like Dr. Phil “hide the decline” Jones and his false belief that global-warming is still real even though the evidence is against him. Take a leaf out of Prof. Judith Curry’s book and concede like the apostle Paul that the evidence provided by those contrary is “deeply flawed” and get real with the true gospel plan before it is everlasting too late.

What Lies behind Biden’s Whopper

Biden’s whopper of a lie at the VP debate Oct 11 has some sinister ramifications behind it. No wonder granddad Joe was laughing throughout the debate, for he and his superior have been quite successful in duping the either willful stupid or the plain dumb in the USA.

This just in from the Noisy Room which gives a report from:

An American hero, Colonel Harry Tunnell IV, Commander of the 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, documented the truth about the war in Afghanistan.

What Obama is really doing in Afghanistan is treasonous.

Dated August 20, 2010, a letter was written to John McHugh, Secretary of the Army, signed by Colonel Harry Tunnell IV. In the letter, four significant factors about military operations in Afghanistan were revealed.

Joe Biden’s Whopper

We all know Joe Biden has a propensity to put his foot in his mouth but it also appears Joe has forgotten the seriousness of Revelation 21:8 that is, all liars will spend eternity in hell. So here is Joe’s whopper last Thursday (Oct.11).

What the mainstream media are not telling you

I make no apologies for this posting. People around the world need to know what the mainstream media don’t want you to know. And before you dismiss this as tripe or call it blogosphere rubbish, check the facts out first and be prepared to be surprised at what you did not know about President Obama.

The Bible contains a pertinent message about those that bring people the truth that they may not want to hear and therefore dismiss with jeer. “Have I therefore become your enemy by telling you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16). I simply want you to be informed as to the truth regarding President Obama. So here is that truth The Noisy Room

Alice Palmer: the woman who got Obama on the road to the White House

Trevor Loudon brings to light another communist figure in Barack Obama’s life who shaped the man he is today: Alice Palmer. USA, please listen carefully to Trevor, for his message is dire for your future but not just your’s but the free world.

Trevor exposed the communists such as Van Jones, Leon Panetta as the communist operatives in the White House. His efforts to bring to light the communist agenda in the USA should not be under estimated. Please connect the dots and see if what he says is true – I beg of you.  Get his message through to media that will not only take notice but be not afraid to by pass the wimpy skeptics such as Bill O’Rielly, Greta Van Susterin etc at Fox News.

In the second half of Trevor’s 25 minute presentation there is a chilling message for what is in store not only the USA but for us down here in the antipodes. The filthy communists are on the brink of breaking out. Why do you think Putin stole the Russian presidency? Why do you think Russia, China and Iran are propping up Syria? Why do you think China has economically and militarily built its presence in Fiji and neighboring islands in the Pacific? Connect the dots before it is too late. You must, it is imperative that you remove that fraud and communist Obama from office in November and put him and his communist goons to trial.

Don’t you see, Joe McCarthy was absolutely right in the 1950s about the communist infiltration and you are seeing the effect of his silencing in the form of a left leaning media that is determined to see their man remain in office. Just look at how they are allowing the filthy liar Sen. Reid to get away with his lies about Romney not paying tax and the atrocious attacks upon Michelle Bachman for exposing the treacherous Muslim Brotherhood connections with the White House. You needn’t rely on Fox News to expose it all for they remain silent as the lambs when it comes to most of it for they are wimps, afraid of being labeled “birthers”.

Get your act together and wake up before you are gobbled up by the evil Stalinists.

Thought for the week

The debate that is raging at the moment is all about “gay marriage” and the rights and wrongs of it that I feel compelled to add it is fuelled by liberal politicians such as US President Obama and New Zealand Prime Minister Key to garner political “Brownie Points”. My question is: Is it possible that this issue can ever be solved through a method devoid of higher authority? I say no! For as the Bible says, ” No one is good but One, that is, God” (Mark 10:18). Let’s be honest, man’s premise of atheism cannot account for moral behaviour such as marriage, for atheism itself is mere opinion devoid of objective proof. Go ahead; prove to me there is no God. Tolerance, remember, is that one man’s opinion is no better or worse than another’s so you must objectively, as God says, “prove all things” (I Thessalonians 5:21).

Soon after the Second World War 22 high ranking officers of the Nazi regime were brought to justice in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg, the birth place of the Nazi Party. The Allies used the newly created London Charter of the International Military Tribunal, which differed from individual Allied nation’s laws, to prosecute these criminals. The Nazi defence argued on the grounds of subjectivity saying they were “only acting under orders”. That is to say, as it was legal in Germany to pursue war and the associated atrocities that thereafter occurred, each officer was merely following a superior’s order. Instead of arguing the defenders’ point, the Allied prosecution appealed to a higher authority’s objectivity; that is, The “Nuremberg Principals” which consisted of seven articles with this basic principal in mind: that an individual or head of state “who commits an act which constitutes a crime under international law is responsible therefore and liable to punishment.” To this day, no nation has the subjective right to sanction murder without consequence from an international high authority.

So the “gay marriage” argument pursued without a higher authority’s input is merely an argument devoid of objective proof. Many people of all sorts of secular backgrounds and viewpoints now argue for the right of homosexuals to be legally married. In a similar fashion many people in Nazi controlled Germany from all sorts of secular and even religious backgrounds argued for the right to exterminate Poles, Dutch, French, British, and Jews etc. through their act of war. Yet, in both cases, while being legal according to constitutional governance that does not mean it is morally right.

As I stated in the beginning, man is not the inventor of morals, for if so, that would constitute morals based upon mere opinion. The God of the Bible claims He is the higher authority regarding morals (Mark 10:18); therefore man needs to appeal to He who is “good” for the right for homosexuals to marry. Without fear of a true and valid contradiction I will point out from His New Testament (mankind is subject to the new covenant today so don’t do as many are apt to do in this debate and appeal to nonsensical arguments based on the old covenant’s statutes) that giving homosexuals the right to marry would be sinful. Go to Romans 1:18-32; I Corinthians 6:9; I Timothy 1:10 where the Holy Spirit guided apostle states unequivocally that practicing homosexuality is condemned.
