The Patriot Post® · Incongruities, Observations, Political & Religious Potpourri
Uganda is an extreme example for pressure from the Obama administration as evidenced by Press Secretary Jay Carney who on Feb. 24 expressed dismay at Uganda for criminalizing homosexual behavior, and the U.S. is offended and will do whatever to repeal this horrible law. When will America to live and let live, and not dictate to foreign countries, proven unnatural sexual behavior as moral equivalence? Obama opposed a proposed bill in Uganda that would criminalize same-sex marriages and impose life imprisonment for repeated homosexual acts, because, “As a country and a people, the United States has consistently stood for the protection of fundamental freedoms and universal human rights.”
Obama-god defines “Universal Human Rights,” disregarding an estimated 72 percent of all African nations in process of passing laws restricting public homosexual behavior. Sounds right, that a true democracy sets its own social code of ethics and natural law. Elevating sexual crusades of a 4% U.S. minority of homosexual (Homo is Greek for Same) Americans to worldwide influence is the epitome of the flea on the tail of the dog, wagging the dog. Dr. Crouse told LifeSiteNews: “And it is hypocritical for him on the one hand to say America is unexceptional and bow to other national leaders and then on the other hand, seemingly from a position of moral superiority, tell other nations that their beliefs are inferior to his supposedly enlightened, exalted views.”
Obama told Jay Leno on an August Tonight Show that “Nations like Russia which forbid same-sex marriage, are violating the basic morality, and that he had no patience for countries that do not affirm gays or lesbians or transgender persons.”
ASPCA ‘CHURCH’ commercials ask for a mere 60 cents a day to save abandoned pets and animals. Religious reverence, solemn music, and memorable love songs accompany the plea, and are the heartrending centerpiece of ASPCA advertising for funding to house, feed, medicate, and KILL abandoned animals. Watching and listening to their grief-stricken pleas is like attending a weekly church service, collection basket and all.
Highroadhunting.com reported on a recent poll, that 88% of contributors said they would not have donated to the ASPCA if they had known about the $500,000 a year salary for its CEO. A commenter on the poll put it best, “If you do the math, if donors donate $20.00 a month each. It would take 25,000 total donor months @ $20.00 a month to pay this single salary.”
Unilateral Disarmament of the U.S. Military has been proposed by Obama with severe cuts in Military spending due to the end of the Afghanistan War and sequestration cuts. Critics allege Obama and the Pentagon engage in a deliberate and dangerous hollowing out of U.S. Armed Forces. Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney said cuts will further erode already poor military readiness and signals that the U.S. will not be in position to defend national security threats on the scale it has. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced plans for a $522 billion budget, which is exponentially higher than the defense budget for any other nation.
Conservatives are aghast, but need not be, as a reduced military budget is a surefire way to cut duplication, waste, and fraud by the MIC, while forcing the U.S. out of the treacherous quicksand of perpetual Islamic wars. Muslim opponents hate the U.S. and drain the lifeblood of U.S. money, manpower, and Macho Man “Policeman Of The World” attitude that wasted $7 trillion, nearly 7,000 dead, and as many as 50,000 severely injured since G.W. Bush opted for his oxymoron “War To Prevent War.” For this a rare thumbs up for President Barack Obama.
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” are words given to the ancient prophet Ezekiel from many thousand years ago, describes a conversation between the prophet and the Lord God. It begins with the words: “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.” … “But if the wicked will turn from all his sins to do what is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.” The Lord God goes on, “Have I any pleasure that the wicked should die and not that he should turn from his wickedness and live? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.”
Islam persecutes Christians in most of its 57 countries, with nine of the ten top violators cited for extreme Christian persecution being Muslim, along with North Korea. Muslims killing Christians dates back to Prophet Mohammed and his 72 (Virgins?) military campaigns, during which Christian “Infidels” were tortured or killed. Mohammed died in 632 AD but his vendetta continued unabated across Christian North Africa, enslaving and mercilessly torturing and butchering Christians. Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria are listed in the top ten persecutors of Christians with the fateful shouts, “Allah Akbar,” – “God is great” – as shouted by Fort Hood U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan as he killed thirteen U.S. military personnel. Obama whitewashed this Muslim incident as “Workplace Violence,” thus allowing full pay to Hasan while he awaited trial and conviction.
Persecuted Chinese Christians resorted to holding secret Church services in private homes and moving locations to thwart Chinese government bent on exterminating Christianity. Despite persecution, the Chinese Church thrived and grown to over 120 million from more humble beginnings. TeaPartyEconomist.com reports:
“The strategy is simple to describe: no permanent real estate. There are no permanent church buildings. If you can’t find it, you cannot tax it. If you cannot find it, you cannot regulate it. If you cannot find it, you cannot subsidize it. If you cannot tax it or regulate it or subsidize it, the state cannot suppress it. It’s simple. And it is working, just as it worked from Nero to Diocletian.”
State rights define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and challenged by Attorney General Eric Holder who hesitates not to venture into the unknown. Holder opposes States that affirm their right to define marriage, and refuse to implement Federal orders usurping the Constitutional Power that any rights not enumerated to Federal, remain with the States. Holder told State Attorneys General, “You Don’t have to enforce laws you disagree with,” passing his wrong philosophy down to state attorneys general. Holder reiterated the same message to the NY Times, saying AGs do not have to enforce laws they disagree with, specifically when it comes to the issue of gay marriage … DICTATORSHIP.
Attorney General Holder advises his state AG counterparts on how and when to refuse to defend state laws. Holder said when laws touch on core constitutional issues like equal protection; an Attorney General should apply the highest level of scrutiny before reaching a decision on whether to defend it. He said the decision should never be political or based on policy objections. In 2011, Obama announced the DOJ would not enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, which was struck down in 2013 by another SCOTUS blunder.
Climate Change A.K.A. Global Warming is once again front and centre stage, as Obama has a scant two years to bully pulpit drive his incomplete Liberal agenda through congress. Failing that, the combination of EPA legislative rules, regulations, and prohibitions, powered by the mighty pen and phone of the anointed one, will further crush the U.S. economy with taxes, fees, and loss of jobs. Carbon Dioxide CO2 is formed during respiration, and is necessary for plant growth, but misdiagnosed by Global Warming alarmists. They visualize an abundance of tax revenues, the final link to One World control by anti-American despots occupying the anti-American U.N. Obama promised, threatened, that the cost of energy will necessarily go up, one of the few truths he has ever spoken; Would that it were a lie.
Obama perceives himself an Egyptian Pharaoh and Roman Caesar combined, picturing himself as walking on water, telling the winds, storms, and waves to subside, but only One Person in history accomplished that feat. Obama went so far as to declare Global Warming as settled science. Absent Obama success, Global Warming taxpayer funding will not happen. Obama needs Carbon Taxes to implement his transfer of power and wealth philosophy and agenda.
Nuclear Fusion scientists recently discovered a breakthrough that shows how a fusion reaction can extract more fuel from nuclear material than was put into it, a key step towards harnessing cheap, plentiful, environmentally safe energy that does not rely on fossil fuels. That discovery may resolve the radiation unspent fuel storage problem as well. A dream worth chasing.
NFL threatened moving the 2015 Super Bowl if Arizona passed “The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, S.B. 1062” that would have allowed businesses to sell or not sell, based on their religious or ethical convictions. NFL officials played pious non-discrimination policies of tolerance and inclusiveness. What a statement from the NFL as a “Not-For-Profit” that is exempt from income taxes. Where is NFL tolerance for State’s Rights that is written into the Constitution? The Christian Post entered the fray, siding with the NFL because “Religious, ethical, or moral beliefs tell them it is wrong to deny service; and turning away customers is no way to run a business.” Shades of the politically correct religious RIGHT turning sharply wrong LEFT.
Too Big To Fail, but fail they do, socially, morally, and ethically. For all their financial and technical success, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, and a host of corporate movers and shakers, fail the test of natural law as they use somewhat ill-gotten gains to promote illegal alien workers, homosexuality, and population control via abortion, contraceptives, and denial of medical services to those whose can no longer contribute to society. Rulers, rich, successful, famous, and powerful, should pay heed to Matthew 16:26: “For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?”
