Officials of Harrisonburg, Virginia, have filed charges against the Valley Church of Christ because of anti-abortion signs on the church property. After a complaint by a local citizen, the officials ordered the church to remove the signs within 10 days or face criminal charges.
A record 93,184 000 Americans are no longer in the labor force, yet we continue to allow hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens into this land.
Last week we noted that Hillary Clinton said we Americans must change our “religious beliefs” on various issues. I presume she referred to abortion and same-sex marriage. If we change our religious beliefs, does that mean we would be more like her husband? Wouldn’t that be a hoot!
A growing number of American voters consider illegal immigration a serious problem and believe controlling the border is the most important thing the government can do, even if using the military is necessary, according to recent a Rasmussen poll.
Pentagon Credit Cards Used for Gambling, Prostitutes
The Department of Defense Inspector General reports that military officials and civilians in the Pentagon used government credit cards for gambling and “adult entertainment,” according to Politico.
The Report said the employees used the cards for gambling in casinos in both Las Vegas and Atlantic City and also for “escort services” in those cities.
A Pentagon official said the employees who have the cards pay their own bills — with the government cards — then submit receipts to be reimbursed for government-related business only. But it is unlawful for them to use the cards for non-government business.
Politico reported the employees may have used the government cards to hide their activities from their wives.
IRS Agents Who Dodged Their Taxes Receive Bonuses
Employees at the Internal Revenue Service who deliberately did not pay their own taxes were rewarded with bonuses, according to a new inspector general report.
Many of those same agents were reward with $145,000 in bonuses, vacation time and promotions, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
“Employees who are found to willfully violate tax law are supposed to be fired, according to a federal law passed in 1998 known as the ‘Taxpayer Bill of Rights,'” the Beacon reported. “However, the IRS has not only allowed thousands of its employees to avoid paying taxes, but has rewarded many of them…”
According to the Beacon, the audit found 1,580 employees who willfully did not pay their taxes and 18,300 others who did not comply with the tax laws they are responsible for enforcing.
Comment: Amazing! Pentagon employees — military and civilian — and IRS agents break the law and waste taxpayers money or fail to pay their taxes and WE THE PEOPLE know that nothing will be done to remedy the problem. Why is that? Because this Report for two years has published these kinds of egregious situations and they continue.
The basic problem is oversight of taxpayers’ money. There is none.
Muslim Refugees Invade Idaho — the Insanity Continues
There is a multicultural transformation taking place in Idaho as the federal government plans to relocate some 2,000 Muslim refugees into the state, World Net Daily reports.
According to the local newspaper, Twin Falls, Idaho, will receive 300 mostly Syrian refugees. The state soon will be the home to others from Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo and possibly Somalia.
“Sources tell WND that community leaders learned of the plans for up to 2,000 refugees at a recent conference at Boise State University attended by church groups, social service providers…” WND said.
WND earlier reported that the feds will send a number of Syrians to Spartanburg, South Carolina, which also will have a Muslim community.
Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina asked Secretary of State John Kerry what benefits will be given to the refugees and what will it cost the taxpayers. He has received no response.
Comment: These Muslims will join thousands of others whom the feds have placed in communities throughout the land. Apparently the feds decide how many and where to place Muslim refugees and the states — such as Idaho and South Carolina — can’t do anything about it. This is just another case of government oppression.
The FBI director said this week that there are as many as 1,500 ISIS sympathizers already in this land, so many that the agency can barely keep them under surveillance.
Why does the Obama administration continue to create more and more problems for the American people they are sworn to protect?
Child Molester, Suspected Murderers Cross Border from Mexico
Two child molesters and a murder suspect were caught crossing the Laredo, Texas, crossing — in one day, according to MRC TV.
Agents at the Laredo crossing arrested a male Honduran national who had been charged with sexual assault of a child in Houston in 2012, MRC TV reported. Later the same day, officers at the Zapata station arrested a Mexican national who was convicted for aggravated sexual assault of a child in Austin in 2004.
A third alien also arrested at the Laredo station. Officers discovered there was an outstanding warrant for him for murder in Longview, Texas.
Comment: This is very troubling. It raises two important questions: First, why were these men released from prison, and, second, why is it so easy for them to return to this land?
We know that in the past two years, the Obama administration has released 36,000 convicted criminals from federal prisons and returned them to our communities. We also know that very few are being departed back to Mexico or Central or South American countries.
Yet thousands of aliens continue to cross our borders every month.
Immigration: Apocalypse for America?
Conservative leader and author Phyllis Schlafly believes it is.”It’s do-or-die for America,” she said of the battle over mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, World Net Daily reports.
“Once you have one amnesty, people are lining up for the next one,” she said. “It doesn’t stop or end anything.”
She also said the time is coming when the people of the United States must decide on open borders, amnesty, cheap labor and more — including their own future.
Schlafly — the attorney who years ago led the successful fight against the Equal Rights Amendment — is concerned about both Republican Jeb Bush and Democrat Hillary Clinton.
She pointed out that Clinton wants to give blanket amnesty to the 11 million illegal aliens in this land and Bush says he wants a pathway to “full and equal” citizenship for the aliens.
“If it comes down to Bush vs. Clinton, will the American people really have a choice on immigration?” WND asks. “Schlafly doesn’t think so.”
She believes that both Clinton and Bush want to open this country’s borders in order to provide bigbusiness with a steady flow of cheap labor, WND said.
She said that at a time of high unemployment — some believe to be 20 percent — it doesn’t make sense to bring in cheap labor.
Comment: Schlafly rightly notes that if amnesty is granted to the 11 million aliens already in this land, 20 or 30 million more will make their way to America. What will we do with them?
Obama Pledges $60 Billion to Iran to Sign Nuke Treaty
President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have promised the Iranians $60 billion if they will sign a nuclear arms treaty with the United States, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Republicans reacted to the plan saying Iran will use the money to fund terrorism throughout the Middle East. They are known supporters of Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist groups.
However, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said that even though large sums of money will go to Iran, that “most” of it will not directly fund terrorist operations in the Middle East, the Beacon said.
Comment: The naiveté of our leaders is a continuing source of amazement to me. When did the Iranians ever keep their promises? Caveat emptor!
Dr. James Dobson Predicts Fall of Western Civilization
Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council, says that if the U.S. Supreme Court redefines marriage, the ruling will lead to the fall of “western civilization,” according to World Net Daily.
“I do not recall a time when the institutions of marriage and the family have faced such peril, or when the forces arrayed against them were more formidable or determined,” he writes in a litter to hundreds of thousands of supporters.
“This is a time for concerted prayer, divine wisdom and greater courage than we have ever been called upon to exercise,” he said.
At one point, he described President Obama as the “abortion president” and warned America is heading toward “depravity.”
In his lawsuit against the administration over Obamacare’s abortion requirements, he told the President he would refuse to obey any law that required him to participate in the killing of an unborn child.
He added that “this assault on the sanctity of human life takes me where I cannot go,” he said in an open letter to the president.
“I WILL NOT pay the surcharge for abortion services,” he said. “To pay one cent for the killing of babies is egregious to me, and I will do all I can to correct a government that lies to me about its intentions and then tries to coerce my acquiescence with extortion. The Creator will not hold us guiltless if we turn a deaf ear to the cries of His innocent babies. So come and get me if you must, Mr. President. I will not bow before your wicked regulation.”
Comment: Hooray for Dr.Dobson! Neither will I bow to all the depravity that is being forced on us by government.
Some Afterthoughts on the Baltimore Riots
Whenever there is unrest in the inner cities of our nation, President Obama and other liberals/progressives cry out and blame the Republicans for not appropriating enough money to solve those cities’ problems.
The Obama crowd believes that the answer to any kind of civil unrest or rioting is money, money, money.
But let’s take a closer look at Baltimore and see if money has in any way helped solve the rioting and burning and moral decay on the streets of that city.
Actually, in recent years, the federal government has poured $1.8 billion dollars into the poor areas of that city, according to CNS. About all the good it did was increase the number of government jobs, as anti-poverty programs often do.
But we all should have learned that money is not enough. For instance, of the $1.8 billion that went to Baltimore, $467 million went to education; $206 million to “family” programs; $161 million to infrastructure; $15 million to transportation; $11 million to housing; and $3 million to job training.
And one observer said the government really doesn’t have any idea just how all the money was spent due to lack of accountability.
As CNS pointed out, federal spending did nothing to fix the broken social and economic situation in Baltimore — or in any other major city in this land.
“The appetite of government is never satiated; $1.8 billion was spent and the city still erupted in flames, yet now the president is saying we’ve done nothing,” CNS reported.
Of course, the liberal prescription is always more spending, funded by more taxation and more debt, accompanied by more regulation, CNS noted.
“We are led to believe more government spending will fix Baltimore and other inner cities like it,” CNS pointed out. “In fact, only economic freedom, educational reforms, and lower taxes allow more capital to remain in these communities can aid the situation.”
