Charlie Daniels: What Would Happen If Liberals Got the World They Wanted Here on Earth?

H/T Charlie Daniels@CNSNews.

I sometimes wonder how the mainstream media, judicial system, sanctuary cities and liberal politicians would fare in the kind of world they are trying to bring about: a world without borders, a world without morals, a socialist society ruled by an all-powerful, central government that would control the distribution and quality of health care, the parameters of abortion, the length of people’s lives through euthanasia and the population’s practice of religion.

Probably the first thing to go, as is always the case in totalitarian regimes, would be freedom of the press. Then most of the rest of our personal freedoms would follow: abolition of privately owned firearms, the caliber and content of education, the outlawing of homeschooling, restrictions on what can be said from the pulpits of the nation and close control of academic curriculum.

Headstrong activists of out of favor political persuasion would be silenced, and indecipherable laws that could be construed to mean anything their authors wanted them to mean would be introduced and enforced to control any dissidents.

Does this sound impossible to you?

Well, just stop and think.

If you will really put aside your political prejudices for a minute and examine what is truly going on, if you’ll admit the truth to yourself, the lion’s share of the supposed great social programs that have been signed into law in the last half century have not been about the good of the country, but for the grabbing of political power for whichever party happens to be in office.

Look at Obamacare. Any responsible evaluation would reveal that it is a program that was designed to fail, and when it did, the only answer to universal health care would be for the federal government to move in and create a single-payer plan, giving them control of almost 17 percent of the American economy.

Did you know there are treaties which could control even the plants and flowers you can plant in your own garden and yard?

There is also a similar UN treaty regulating firearms.

One UN Treaty would put half of the land in the United States off limits, not even allowing it to be used for agriculture if implemented.

Did you know that America is among the most environmentally clean nations on earth and China and the nations who would have been allowed by the Paris Accord to do nothing about their ecological filth for decades, are among the dirtiest?

The U.S. didn’t sign the Kyoto Protocol, but reduced carbon emissions while other nations who did sign Kyoto did not.

Did you know that the United Nations have a program for decreasing the population of the world?

Did you know that for over a century the global warming, climate change, whatever the nom du jour, have vacillated between an ice age and catastrophic warming, going back and forth to whichever one suits their purposes?

Please don’t take my word for these issues. They are easily researched.

Actually, they had it all figured out.

Hillary Clinton was a shoe in, and all the socialist power grabs by the federal government would continue and reach critical mass during her eight years – reaching the point of no return.

But they forgot to figure in two things, Hillary Clinton is about as likable and believable as a hammerhead shark to the common folks. She just doesn’t communicate well.

Secondly, no section of the American voters can be taken for granted anymore.

What I’m going to say now cannot be properly researched and is strictly my own opinion, prompted in the tenants of my faith and the signs of the times.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the preponderance of the European leaders are globalists who believe in a one world government, and it’s a simple thing for a monolithic all-powerful government of a nation to sign treaties ceding much of its power to a seemingly benevolent

centralized global government which claims to have all the answers to the planet’s wars and famines.

It’s the type of government that would do away with cash, therefore eliminating counterfeiting, bank robbing and the slaughter of innocent night workers at convenience stores.

It’s a government that would require every person alive to carry incorruptible identification, and just to make sure it is incorruptible, a small chip that could not be duplicated could be inserted under the skin in a hand. This would do away with fraud, overdrawn bank accounts, bad checks and make it next to impossible for a criminal to exist.

Oh, they’ll have all the answers and will deceive the people and the leaders of the earth in massive numbers.

There will be a one world government, and it will seem to be the Utopian answer to all the problems of mankind.

It will happen. It’s all prophesied in the Book of Revelation in the Holy Bible.

But remember, allowing yourself to be marked or implanted with an international identification chip is irreversible and irredeemable. It’s a pledge of allegiance to Satan and consigns your soul to eternal damnation. It is known as the Mark of the Beast.

One world government is the kingdom of the antichrist.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

Charlie Daniels Responds to Typical Liberal Hate Note with Open Letter

1 Comment

This is from CNSNews.

Charlies response is much kinder than I could have responded.

Dear fellow American from the “dream world,”

I want to thank you for your letter and all the unkind things you attempted to say about me. I have a few comments of my own to make.

First of all, your command of the English language, while archaic, inane, convoluted and tiresome, is admirable – if not very communicable – but your finely-honed sense of hyperbole would qualify you for the upper echelons of liberal verbal overkill.

However, you really should go to your dictionary and look up the word “racist.”

I’ll save you the trouble, the dictionary defines racism as the belief that one race is superior to all others; not those who criticize President Obama.

Your insistence that I want to starve old people and children, start a war, completely divest women of every right they’ve gained since the days of Susan B. Anthony, abuse minorities by demanding a valid ID to vote, put a gun in the hand of every violent person in the country, accuse every Muslim in the world of being a terrorist, take away the rights of every religion except my own, destroy the ecology with the internal combustion engine and by not believing in man made global warming, mistreat undocumented aliens by not allowing them to come into the country illegally and that believing everyone should pay some taxes to have some skin in the game, not having compassion for lazy bums who refuse to work and sponge off the government and being the cause for the Chicago Cubs not being in a World Series since 1945 is a little over the top.

Kidding about the Cubs.

You did, however, pay me a couple of compliments.

You called me a “redneck” and a “hillbilly,” and I wholeheartedly accept both insinuations with gratitude. And I acknowledge that at least you got two things about me right.

Let me elaborate.

I’m “Redneck” from your point of view because I passionately believe that the second amendment guarantees American citizens the right to keep and bear arms – and not just for sports and target practice, but protection – because I like to spend my Sunday afternoons watching cars go around a race track real fast and because I enjoy watching heavyweight young men face each other over an inflated piece of pigskin, among other things you may consider to be trivial and plebeian.

I’m a “Hillbilly” because – first of all – I love country music and the rural lifestyle. Oh, and by the way, “hillbilly” is passé. The only ones who use it are people who never venture outside their little circle of urban-bound, self-ordained sophisticates with a weakness for Perrier and lime and reading books they claim they love, but don’t really understand.

When it comes to somebody who has my back I’ll take the rednecks and hillbillies every time and leave the university professors and armchair philosophers to you.

Your idealism and tacit fascination with socialism reflects shallowness, indifference or downright ignorance – or perhaps a little of all three – as all it takes to understand the abject failure of the system, for at least three quarters of a century, is a cursory examination of history.

And your belief that you can bargain with terrorist states and dictatorships or contain their evil is naive to say the least, as the only kind of diplomacy these kinds of people will ever understand is a power much stronger than any they can muster.

While you’ll go to all lengths to save the whales and see that baby seals are treated humanely, you condone the murder of millions of the unborn every year and condemn me for believing that a fetus is a living human being and deserves the same right to come into the world alive as you and me.

And one more comment insofar as the right to bear arms: If and when a terrorist sleeper cell comes out of hiding and starts indiscriminately gunning down people in the streets and invading neighborhoods, or some hardened criminal escapes from prison and is considered “armed and dangerous,” put a sign on your door stating that your home is a gun free zone.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Charlie Daniels: The place I’m most thankful for

Leave a comment

This is from Fox News Opinion.

As one who has been blessed with visiting every nook, cranny, corner and crevice of this greatest of nations, I have developed a deep and abiding love, and yes, a special kind of pride for my beautiful country.

I still get misty eyed when I hear a moving rendition of our national anthem or stand on a street corner at some small town fourth of July parade and no matter how many times I see it, the sight of the Grand Canyon can still take my breath away.
America, there’s no place like it, never has been, never will and I’m so thankful to call it home….

Have you ever spent the late afternoon

Watching the purple shadows deepen in the Arizona desert?

Or seen a herd of elk plough their way

Through waist deep snow on a cold Colorado morning?

Did you ever see the sun go down in Hawaii

Or seen the stormy waves break over the rockbound coast of Maine

Or have you ever seen an eagle fly up out of the mists of Alaska

Or a big October moon hanging full over the still Dakota badlands?

Have you ever tasted the gumbo in New Orleans, barbecue in Carolina

Or the chicken wings in Buffalo?

Have you ever had Brunswick stew in Macon or cornbread in Birmingham?

Or briskets slow cooked over hill country mesquite wood?

Did you ever drink the water from a gurgling branch in Utah

Or stand on the mountain above El Paso Del Norte?

And see the lights twinkling clear over into Mexico

Did you ever jingle horses in the pre dawn stillness of a perfect Texas day

And watch their shod hooves kicking up sparks on the volcanic rock?

Or tended a trot line on a foggy Carolina morning,

Or heard the distant love song of a lovesick whippoorwill

On a pristine Tennessee late night?

Have you seen the faces on Mount Rushmore or stood at the Vietnam monument?

Have you ever crossed the mighty Mississippi,

Or been to the Daddy of ‘Em All in Cheyenne, Wyoming

Or seen the mighty Vols run out on the football field on a chilly autumn afternoon?

Did you ever see the Chicago skyline from Lakeshore Drive at night

Or the New England foliage in the fall?

Or the summer beauty of the Shenandoah Valley,

Or Indiana covered with new snow?

Did you ever see a herd of wild horses running free

Across the empty spaces of Nevada?

Or caught a walleyed pike out of a cold Wisconsin stream?

Or marveled at the tall ships docked in the harbor at Baltimore?

Did you ever see the early morning dew sparkling on the bluegrass

Or the wind stir the wheat fields on a hot Kansas afternoon?

Or driven the lonely stretches of old Route 66?

Have you ever heard the church bells peal their call to worship

On an early Sunday, in some small town in the deep South?

Or passed through the Redwood Forest just as the sun was going down

Have you ever been to Boise or Baxley or Beaufort or Billings?

Have you ever passed through Sanford or Suffolk or San Angelo

Have you ever seen the falls at Niagara

The Ice Palace in Saint Paul

Or the Gateway to the West?

This then is America!

The land God blesses with everything

And no Taj Mahal,

No Alps, No Andes

No native hut, nor Royal Palace

Can rival her awesome beauty,

Her diverse population, her monolithic majesty.

America the Free…

America the Mighty…

America the Beautiful.

 

Charlie Daniels on America: ‘We Are Due a Day of Reckoning’

Leave a comment

This is from CNSNews.

Charlie Daniels is saying the same things that Conservatives have been saying about handouts for years.

God also said to care for the widows, orphans, elderly and the disabled.

Here is a quote from Paul in a letter to the Thessalonians,

  

2 Thessalonians 3:10King James Version (KJV)

10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

Charity – the act of giving money, food, or other kinds of help to people who are poor, sick.

Federal entitlements, regardless of whatever clever antonym or fancy bureaucratic name they go by are actually charity, or at least that is what they started out as.

I believe in charity, but sometimes I think I have a much different definition than many people, and definitely a different definition from the one the government operates on. However, what the government practices is not actually charity, but patronage.

Now put aside your politics, your political correctness, your automatic rhetorical responses and answer these questions honestly.

Is any able-bodied person entitled to spend their lives sponging on the federal or state dole while you work hard to make a living and pay the taxes that support them?

Does anybody have the right to bring children into this world and walk away without ever paying a cent for their support, leaving the cost of their upbringing to the taxpayers?

If your answers to the two above questions was no, then you should be as angry, disgusted and disillusioned as I am. I’m fed up with the bogus disability claims and men who father scores of children and are never held accountable for their welfare.

There are men who go through life carelessly fathering dozens of children who will never even know his name. They leave behind whole families of underprivileged kids who will never have a decent chance at life, raised in a hard scrabble, hand-to-mouth existence, in an environment where dodging bullets is a way of life and the local drug dealer is the most respected person in the neighborhood.

People say that we’ve gone so far into the entitlement direction that there is no way to rectify it, but actually, there is a very simple way to fix this problem.

To qualify for public assistance, the mother of the child should be required to identify the father, a simple task in this era of DNA testing. The father then either supports his children, all his children, or goes to jail until they all reach the age of majority.

If he has fathered multiple children, then he should have multiple jobs. No copouts, and no exceptions.

Just start this program, let the word get around and watch the birth rate of fatherless children fall like a brick.

There are some who draw a disability check from the government and then go out and participate in sports and other strenuous exercises, no more disabled than a racehorse.

That person – after medical exams to prove the sham – should be taken off assistance, spend a year in jail and be forced to pay back the money they’ve already been paid.

Drastic measures?

Absolutely, but things have gone so far that nothing less than drastic measures will ever turn it around.

There is an eventual price to pay for socialism and politicians who consider the federal treasury to be their own personal piggy bank to be used as additional campaign funds and public relations. They buy votes and good will for their party on any whimsical foolishness they can push through Congress.

Social Security funds should be identified, locked away and never allowed to be touched by profligate politicians.

Every time you buy a gallon of gas you are paying into a fund that is supposed to maintain the highways. But take it from one who spends around 125 nights a year up and down the highways of America, a lot of our interstates and federally maintained highways are like washboards with pot holes.

What happened to the highway money?

The truth of the matter is folks, our federal government officials, both parties included, have proven themselves incapable of handling public funds. They cannot police the double-dipping welfare cheats without the guts to face down any problem that could possibly cost them votes.

If Social Security had been handled by investing part of everybody’s assessments in the private sector, with the government forbidden to touch it, the program would be fat and solvent now, actually capable of sustaining a good lifestyle for retirees.

If the highway funds could actually be put into a lock box and honestly handled without political patronage and cronyism, our highways would be in perfect condition.

If the welfare and Medicare cheats were identified, prosecuted and jailed, that problem would soon go away.

We are fast coming down to having, for all practical purposes, a one party system in America. This party is neither Democrat or Republican, but a hybrid, socialist in policy and so big that bureaucracies are tripping all over each other. Stupid regulations cripple and alienate industry, and the entitlement roles and the national debt grows by leaps and bounds.

We are due a day of reckoning.

And make no mistake about it, it’s coming.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem

God Bless America

An Open Letter to President Obama – 2015

Leave a comment

This is from Charlie Daniels.com. 

Old Charlie tells it like it is again.

Dear Mr. President,

This letter is not written in a spirit of hate, disrespect, nor is it motivated in any way by racial bias and is written with respect due the office and the awesome tasks that have been laid on your shoulders.

I write this letter because I am a tax paying American citizen who has experienced the American Dream and wants his children and grandchildren to have the same advantages and opportunities that he has had.

And no, Mr. President, I was not born into a one-percenter family, I come from a blue collar background, never went to college, have made a living doing manual labor and went into my chosen profession at ground level, worked hard and sacrificed to achieve success.

On April 13, 1967 I arrived in Nashville, Tennessee with a wife, a two-year-old baby, a twenty-dollar bill and the clutch out of my car.

I won’t go into the mountains and valleys that I’ve traveled since then except to say that I have been successful and somebody did help me build the business I own. Almighty God, not the government.

I employ thirty people, good citizens and family people, hard-working people, the kind of gun-clinging, God-fearing folks who make America the greatest nation the world has ever known.

Mr. President, it seems to me that you have little faith in American ingenuity, American capability, American exceptionalism and even American patriotism.

You seem to think that America needs a monolithic, big brother type government to oversee and regulate every aspect of American life, that citizens are not competent to control their own affairs and make their own decisions without some oppressive bureaucracy to call the shots.

Mr. President, the answer is not government, conversely, the problem is government. A government that has doubled the national debt, increased unemployment, lowered take home pay, increased food stamp participation and disability claims and introduced socialized medicine.

You support teacher’s unions which take political activism more seriously than education.

You intentionally lied to the American people about your stand on marriage being between a man and woman, and continue to lie when it is politically expedient for you to do so.

You surround yourself with inexperienced ideologues and political yes men and take the advice of individuals who are swimming in waters way too deep for them.

Your petulance is unbecoming, Mr. President, and your criticism of anyone who disagrees with you is downright unmanly. You come off like a spoiled child who has been denied his way.

And while you blame your shortcomings on opposing political parties, you had both houses of Congress and the White House in the first two years of your term. Plus an electoral mandate to do just about anything you wanted to, so the least you can do is cowboy up and take the blame for the messes you’ve made.

Your apparent disregard for the maintenance and morale of our armed services is extremely unwise and dangerous.

Mr. President, the office you hold is not a place for the faint of heart and when you draw a red line you’d dang well better be willing to back it up, because when you don’t every tyrant and despot in this world takes it for a sign of weakness and will take advantage, Putin and China being a prime example.

In making any kind of deal with Iran you spit in the face of Israel and plant the seeds of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

The last report showed that the US economy actually shrunk by .07% while the national debt and other obligations grow by the day.

No matter how many apologists come forth and no matter how much double talk you and the puppets who speak for you come up with, the greatest nation the world has ever known is losing a war with a small army of criminals and thugs that grows bigger every day simply because you don’t have the guts to face the problem.

You’re running out of diversions Mr. President, sleight of hand political policies eventually stop working and lies finally float to the top of water.

Time is running out for you Mr. President and the horrible thing about it is that time is running out for America too.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Words of wisdom from Charlie Daniels.

 

In my 77 years of experience on earth, I have never seen the scarcity of capable leadership as critical as it is today.

When someone speaks of leadership, most people’s minds go immediately to politics and there’s no doubt that the lack of qualified leaders reaches into the very top echelons of government, but the problem extends deeply into the social, moral and business world as well.

One of the greatest causes for the multiple divisions in America can be traced to lack of leadership. Social upheaval, gigantic bankruptcies leading to government bailouts, the slow demise of unions, the lax moral attitudes of many of the younger generation can be traced directly to lack of sensible, responsible leadership.

Politicians pandering to voting blocks, business leaders taking reckless chances with stockholder’s money, union officials making demands a company cannot meet and rabble rousing racial leaders who preach dependence rather than self reliance.

One of the prime roles of a leader is to appoint or hire personnel capable of handling autonomy, those with the savvy and common sense to know how far to go without asking the advice of their superiors and how far not to go on their own.

I have been in business for over thirty years and responsible for the payroll and the bills but the only job I can do adequately is entertain, so I do that and leave the day to day running of the business in the capable hands of a small cadre of folks I trust implicitly, knowing that if they reach the point of making a decision that is outside their authority to make, they will run it past me before moving on.

Being surrounded by competent, dependable and trustworthy employees is perhaps the most vital part of leadership and retaining and respecting those people is essential to having a successful business.

There are no unimportant jobs in the CDB. There are times when the drivers have the most important jobs in the whole outfit as they drive the buses and truck through the midnight hours with everybody else’s lives in their hands.

Personally, I have no problem relinquishing authority to employees to give them the latitude to do their jobs, but I think in many cases leaders develop a bad case of megalomania and try to make all decisions on all levels themselves. Then there are those who take little or no responsibility at all and things fall apart with no input from the top.

Racial leaders who blame all their problems on outside influences are actually expounding the theory that their race cannot accomplish anything on their own and have to have help from an outside source. When they really should be blasting gangs, unwed teenage pregnancy, drugs, absentee fathers and violence and energetically promoting self-reliance, education and work ethic.

Many of the churches in America have turned into little more than social clubs as liberalized ministers forsake the teachings of the Bible for a more socially acceptable message with few absolutes and a lot of gray areas.

Union leaders trying to maintain their power, promise their membership the moon and try to saddle companies and governments with unreasonable concessions, causing companies to move out of the country and state and city governments finally go bankrupt and the membership loses much of the pensions they depended on to fund their retirements.

I don’t need to go into the vacuum of leadership on both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue; just mentioning Fast and Furious, Obamacare, IRS, NSA and Benghazi says it better than I ever could.

And lastly, but most important of all, parents have abdicated their responsibilities, allowing young children to watch trash on TV, not emphasizing the importance of education and work ethic, accepting the loose morality of the street and a thousand other things in the day to day life of their children that determine what kind of people they will turn out to be.

Man is meant to be under authority with our Creator at the pinnacle and capable and dedicated mortals up and down the chain of command leading by example.

Somewhere along the way our compass got out of kilter; we need some outstanding leaders to right the ship.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

So Long, Possum

1 Comment

This is by Charlie Daniels in CNSNews.

George had a style of all his own.

 A style I call pure country music.

George Jones,Johnny Cash,Marty Robbins and

Hank Williams could touch your  soul with their songs.

Good Bye Possum and God’s speed.

 

I was still in high school when I first heard the name George Jones. Atthe time he was an up-and-coming songwriter, but it didn’t take long before the powers that be in Nashville took notice of that one of a kind voice and vocal style and took him in a recording studio to begin one of the most legendary careers in the history of the music business.

George was probably the most imitated country singer of all time and you can hear a little of the Possum in the vocal styles of scores of young singers who have come along in the last fifty years or so, but nobody ever came close to doing it like the man himself.

With young singers who tried to emulate George Jones, it was an affectation, while with George it was a God given natural talent that affected his phrasing, his pronunciation and the melancholy timbre of a voice that had a quality that touched the solemn emotions hidden deep inside all of us.

George did things with his voice that nobody else would ever even think about, he’d hold on to a word, teasing it, turning it and make you wonder where he could possibly be going with it, but just at the right second it he’d turn it loose and just make you smile and admire.

Billy Sherrill, George’s record producer, once told me that he was the only person he ever heard who could make a five-syllable word out of “church.”

George Jones’ voice was the rowdy Saturday night uproar at a backstreet beer joint, the heartbroken wail of one who wakes up and finds the other side of the bed empty, the far off lonesome whistle of a midnight train, the look in the eyes of a young bride as the ring is placed on her finger, the memories of a half asleep old man dreaming about the good old days, lost love, lost innocence, good and bad memories and experiences that are just too much for a human being to deal with.

He sang for us all: the non-stop partiers, the guy who is always alone, the girl done wrong, the puppy lovers, the extrovert, the introvert, the guy at the end of the bar who never seems to go home, the happy, the unhappy – and everyone in between. George had a song for everybody.

He had the quintessential blue-collar voice and his life was an open book. He had his problems through the years, but it seemed that every bump in the road only endeared him to his legions of fans and made him seem a little more like one of us with the same faults and weaknesses as ordinary folks.

He never strayed from his roots, never tried to go with trends or fads or sound like the next big thing coming off Music Row. He just kept on being George Jones, and in this modern day of follow-the-leader, cookie cutter, “whatever radio will play” sameness,

George stood head and shoulders above the fray, kept right on doing it his way and we all loved him for it.

Now he’s gone home. He joins the ranks of the greatest of the great. Like Roy Acuff, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams, Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs and Bill Monroe, as long as there’s country music, he’ll never be forgotten.

We’re going to miss you, Mr. Jones.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

 

 

Don’t Confuse My Heartfelt Convictions With Racism

Leave a comment

This is by Charlie Daniels in CNSNews.

i often disagree with President Obama I am not racist.

Charging people is a leftist tactic to intimidate people to be silent.

 We must not be intimidated into silence.

While there are racist among the people who disagree with Obama.

99.98% disagree on principal and convictions.

Being born in the Deep South when the Jim Crow laws were in full force and seeing, firsthand, the cruelty and downright stubborn foolishness of segregation and all it’s attendant inequities, I have a very vivid and candid impression of what the word “racist” really means.

Having lived through those days and, on my own, shook off the yoke of racial prejudice that was once so firmly ingrained in me, I deeply resent the careless and reckless use of the word by people who are merely trying to be insulting, having absolutely no idea of the gravity of it’s meaning.

Disagreeing with somebody of a different race, color or religion does not constitute racism; racism is when you disagree with somebody because of what they are, not because of a difference of opinions.

Otherwise, every time you watched a football game with black players on the opposing team, by virtue of disagreeing with them about who should win the game you would be a racist.

If you disagree with President Obama, as I often do, you are sure to be accused of racism by some individual who doesn’t have enough imagination or is too prejudiced themselves to come up with a valid argument about why what you’ve said is wrong in their opinion so they hide behind insults, innuendo and hyperbole, unable to defend their position, many times because they don’t really know what their position is, being basically political parrots, only able to repeat what they’ve read or heard.

My disagreements with President Obama have nothing to do with his race; I actually couldn’t care less what his race he is. My concern is that he is centralizing the federal government in an attempt to make it an all-powerful entity unanswerable to anybody, even the citizens it purports to serve.

I believe that President Obama has mistakenly perceived the election he just won as a mandate to make this nation in the image of what he thinks it should be which will continue to tear it apart as the opinions of roughly half the population will be ignored.

I don’t think he takes the Constitution seriously and will attempt to subvert it by presidential fiat, executive privilege and backdoor, midnight deals with Congress, getting his way by any method at his disposal.

It is my belief that this nation is on its way to becoming an undereducated, under-motivated country with an inferior military, a devalued currency and a Congress that is nothing more than a figurehead.

I believe that, as the entitlement society grows under Obama’s watch, they will become a monolithic political force and will elect local and federal candidates who will give them more and more.

I believe that the one government entity with a steady hand on the wheel, the Supreme Court, will become a rubber stamp as the members retire andObama type presidents appoint new ones and the sheep in the Senate confirm them.

I believe that Obama and his ilk will never rest until private ownership of firearms is banned and the Congress and Supreme Court will subvert the Constitution and uphold the legislation.

I believe that as long as the United States of America continues to spend billions of dollars more than it takes in we will continue our downhill slide to fiscal insolvency.

I believe that this round of tax hikes is just the beginning and that Obama will say that he needs to lower the bar and tax people in a lower income bracket this will be a pattern until every productive member of society is taxed up to and beyond their limits.

I believe that private money invested in the stock market will dry up for the most part as the tax burden becomes heavier.

I believe that several states will go belly up and the government will bail them out and they will go right back to the same silly fiscal policies that got them in trouble to start with.

I believe that more and more industry will move out of this nation taking jobs, we can’t afford to lose, with them.

I believe that if fully implemented, Obama care will be a cold heartless program meted out by bureaucrats and will promote euthanasia, even more abortion and seriously lower the overall standard of health care.

I believe that the U.S. dollar will stop being the accepted trade currency for the world

And hyperinflation will follow, shortly after.

I believe the federal government will one day suddenly run completely out of funds. It won’t be able to borrow any more and, when the entitlement checks and food stamps don’t go out, there will be mass and uncontrollable rioting in the cities.

I believe that martial law will be declared, posse comitatus will be ignored and federal troops will be used on American soil to quell the violence, which means a complete collapse in American society.

That is my problem with President Obama. Don’t confuse my heartfelt convictions with racism.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

Precedent Teaches Us The Left Really Wants ALL Our Guns

Charlie lays out the facts about guns and the left.

The left hates the Second Amendment and want to destroy it.

They also think the average American does not need to own a gun.

 

When the Supreme Court, or any other court for that matter, makes a ruling in a case they first look for precedent, in other words to see if there has been a court decision rendered on the same subject in the past and usually defer to the old decision in ruling on the case.

The greatest teacher in life is experience; it only takes one time of burning your fingers on a hot stove to know that you never want to touch another one.

The next greatest teacher is observation, paying attention to someone else’s experiences and profiting from their wins and losses, trials and errors.

In my generation I have seen the rise and fall of fascism, communism, different experiments in socialism and the kind of downright social and fiscal foolishness that leads to what has recently happened in Greece.

There is an old saying that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

There is at this time a huge debate in our nation about the private ownership of firearms. The president and the anti-gun crowd claim they do not want to do away with private ownership, that they only want to modify the existing laws having to do with assault weapons -which can be construed as anything in your gun cabinet of any heavy caliber – and clips for semiautomatic weapons holding more than 10 bullets.

I submit to you that what is going on here is the first assault on private gun ownership

They will take what ever they can get now and continue to chip away until all you can legally own to protect your family with is a baseball bat.

Did you know that one of the major reasons the Japanese did not attempt to land troops on the American coast during World War Two is because they knew that Americans owned guns and would fight tooth and nail for every inch of shore line.

Hitler disarmed Germany, Stalin disarmed Russia, and Mao disarmed China.

The mainstream media is quick to report any kind of gun violence but omit the stories where lives have been saved by legally owned guns in the hands of good citizens and the stories are many and varied all across the country.

Let’s look at some precedent:

In 1997, many Aussies were forced to give up their privately owned firearms. Over 630,000 were turned in to be destroyed as part of a “buyback plan” by the Australian government. Total cost of the buyback? $500,000,000.

One year later, here were the results:

Homicides nationwide: Up 6.2%

Assaults nationwide: Up 9.6%

Armed robberies nationwide: Up 44%

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms went up 300%.

Five years later, a “continued modest decline” in homicides was noted, but what has gone up in the land down under over the past few years is the number of assaults. Overall, assaults are up 40% and sexual assaults are up 20%.

Across the pond, Great Britain passed a handgun ban in 1998. Ten years later, many British “bobbies” are armed for the first time because of the amount of illegal guns in the hands of criminals.

Have you read about gun bans resulting in more gun violence or seen it on the television news?

Do you think it’s newsworthy?

America, no matter what Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the far left in America say, they want your guns.

They want them all.

Don’t just wait and see.

When The Gov’t Plays Robin Hood, It Steals Christmas Bonuses, New Equipment, And Jobs

Leave a comment

This is by Charlie Daniels in CNSNews.

Charlie is correct on so may points.

My only gripe with him is with his entitlement checks remark.

I paid into the Ponzi scheme known as Social Security since I was 15 years old.

Then because of degenerative disc disease my back gave out.

I feel like I should get some of my money back.

I made more money working but I no longer can work.

I find it practically impossible to believe that the majority of this nation can’t see the incredibly dark future that is hanging over this country, the austere and strictly regulated lives we are passing on to our children and grandchildren for generations to come.

When I write something like this on my Twitter account, I usually get a tweet or two that tells me just how dumb I am, and that the moves Barack Obama is making are for the benefit of the little man, and that all I care about is rich people and the tweet is usually salted generously with four letter words.

Well let me make a couple of statements. I come from a blue-collar background; I have worked in the log woods, bright leaf tobacco fields and a factory, all for minimum wages.

I have worked at something since the summer I was 10 years old. I have never drawn an unemployment check and the only government assistance I’ve ever had is a social security, which is not assistance at all but money I have paid in and am still paying in.

Everything I have ever accumulated is by the blessings of the God I serve and the sweat of my brow, not to mention sacrifice and the kind of tenacity you have to reach real deep for.

I have employed 30 people for over 30 years, tax-paying citizens who don’t collect food stamps or draw an entitlement check.

I believe in treating my employees the best I can, and many of them have been with me for over 30 years.

Now let me ask you a question: who deserves the fruits of their labor, the employees themselves or the federal government?

If your answer is the federal government, then you are a lost cause and may as well stop reading right here.

When you hear President Obama talking about, “paying their fair share” or taxing the rich,” don’t think Warren Buffet and Bill Gates; think small business.

The president is talking about raising the taxes of everybody making over $250,000 per year. There is hardly a small business in this country that doesn’t take in at least that much money in a year’s time, so what he’s really saying, all his talk about being for the middle class notwithstanding, is the middle class will be the ones to suffer the most.

Let me tell you why. When the federal government takes money from me, they are actually taking it directly out of the American economy because that’s the money I use to give my employees their Christmas bonuses, buy new equipment, upgrade farm implements or buy a new bus or truck, money that goes directly into the pockets of my employees or the economy.

I am just one of the millions of small business men who will be affected by Obama’s “tax the rich” policies and many of them will be forced out of business, causing a another loss of jobs and more strain on the federal budget which will burst open like a ripe watermelon in the near future.

The insurance I provide for my employees goes up thousands of dollars every year, and with the uncertainty of Obamacare and what it actually contains and the irresponsibility of the spend-crazy government, businesses have put future plans on hold, not hiring and not investing their cash reserves.

Now to President Obama. If he was some poor man who came from the cotton fields of Mississippi or the streets of the South Bronx who had come up through the ranks, struggled to get a college education and spent many years living in meager circumstances, had experience with having to scrape to make the rent and buy groceries or sweated out keeping a fledgling business afloat, I could maybe sympathize with his desire to play Robin Hood.

I still wouldn’t agree with it, but I could at least come closer to understanding him.

But, Barack Obama went to the finest universities in the country and has belonged to the elite class practically all his adult life. Barack Obama is a rich man who already has his fortune made and doesn’t have to be concerned with trying to make it in the kind of business climate his policies will create.

So, when he talks about raising taxes, it’s not going to affect his nest egg or, for that matter, the fortunes of the congressmen who will help him put it in place. They’ve all got their golden parachutes and AAA healthcare for the rest of their lives. They can pontificate from their ivory towers and look down at all the worker bees sweating it out and trying to make ends meet.

You may disagree with what I’m saying, you may think that Obama’s taxing policies will produce prosperity and dig us out of our fiscal hole, but with all due respect, down deep, if you’ll be honest with yourself, you know it won’t.

One day soon, America will run completely out of money. We won’t be able to borrow any more, our dollar will no longer be accepted as the world standard and we will have to buy some foreign currency with devalued dollars to pay for oil and other imports, inflation will run wild.

And, the entitlement checks will immediately cease.

What is going to happen when 46 million Americans suddenly stop receiving food stamps, when Medicare is no longer honored by doctors and hospitals? When drug addicts on the government dole no longer have the means to get their fix?

The streets of America will erupt, making the Rodney King riots look like Sunday school outings.

Tempers in this nation are just below the boiling point now. Just look at what’s been happening in Detroit with the union demonstrations. It’s a powder keg and it won’t take much of a spark to set it off.

Whether you agree with me or not, at least listen to one thing I say: please don’t be naive and put your total trust in any one man, political party, ideology or policy – because, if you do, you will be bitterly disappointed.

Don’t get your head stuck in the sand.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
