The Patriot Post® · Columbus Myth, Spending, Debt & ObamaCare Impasse
Christopher Columbus made a remarkable voyage across the Atlantic but did not discover America as he thought he found a sea route around the world to India, hence the natives found on the Newfoundland being called Indians. Leif Erickson preceded Columbus in discovering the new world, and evidently he was not the first either as there were already inhabitants.
Leif Eriksson was born in Iceland about the year 975, led Viking expeditions and may have been the first European to reach North America. He was the son of Eric the Red, who started the first European settlement of Greenland in 985. Viking Bjarni Herjolfsson, had already been to North America.
Where the early American natives originated is still a mystery and now compounded by the finding of a copy of an ancient Chinese map that seems to indicate that much earlier, the Chinese had something to do with discovering or inhabiting America. In his bestselling book, “1421: The Year China Discovered America,” British amateur historian Gavin Menzies claims Chinese sailors beat Christopher Columbus to the Americas by more than 70 years, but Asians probably first set foot in North America by crossing over the Bering Land Bridge from Siberia to Alaska, and migrating southward to populate North and South America.
American Indians are virtually held captive in hundreds of reservations throughout the U.S. and cannot own property in their own reservations, thanks to the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) that treats native Indians worse than Blacks who were brought to America forcibly. America has to address this situation that causes Indians to be depressed, despondent, and in despair, as they often resort to drugs and alcohol. Something must be done about this egregious blight on American history.
"BUT" is the word used to destroy every conservative cause like God, Jesus Christ, Religion, Ten Commandments, Constitution, Marriage, Family, and every human natural law. 4% of priests were homosexual predators but 96% are held in low esteem and people leave the church because of the 4%, ignoring the 96% faithful.
Anecdotal evidence is only circumstantial, an exception, and goes to prove the main point. A common liberal argument throws the baby out with the bath water. As to those who scorn formal religion because maybe 4% of drivers leaving church parking lots after religious services drive aggressively, but that cannot be sufficient reason for NOT attending weekly church services.
As a matter of fact, at the local ShopRite Supermarket, aggressive drivers pass IN the parking lot, endangering pedestrians that have the right of way. So should shopping stop at the supermarket? The same situation prevails at the approach to enter the supermarket parking lot. Despite the left turn signal so through traffic can safely pass in the right lane, aggressive drivers regularly pass on the right and then the passing car cuts in front to turn left first. So that sort of thing happening on the church parking lot should have no effect on people not attending church services because of the 4% aggressive drivers.
Evil is in charge of American culture. Rev. Billy Graham said of our times, “Sin is in,” specifically Obama mandates, homosexuality, gay marriage, tax-paid payment abortion, contraceptives, and abortifacients like dangerous RU486 that can be sold over the counter to girls as young as eleven. There are Obama blatant infringements of Freedoms of Religion, Speech, Arms, Privacy, and Equal treatment under law.
Then the war duplicity in which candidate Obama called Afghanistan the “Good War,” and was against the Iraq War that was approved by Congress with Democratic support. Obama trumped Bush II by his illegally, without Congressional approval, partnering with the EU in committing U.S. Military resources to war actions in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, and North Africa, while funding arch-enemy al-Qaeda. Adding insult to injury, Secretary of State John Kerry committed to U.S. troops staying in Afghanistan past 2015.
A major sin across the spectrum is the sin against covetousness that has gone so far as the have-nots demand all the income of the haves. The battle in America is not between good and evil, but between evil and less bad.
The disastrous startup of the ObamaCare web site is listed as costing $500 million but previously reported here as $1 billion, but now the figure may actually be in the $2 billion range.
Members of Congress are at an impasse as they cannot agree on the debt limit, spending cuts, ObamaCare, or temporarily funding the government. The House passed a variety of bills that would reopen portions of federal government, but rejected by the Senate without debate or vote. Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain are outspoken to fund ObamaCare that once funded, will be nearly impossible to repeal.
House Republican leaders signal willingness to cave on the fight against Obamacare. The administration line is that ObamaCare is “the law of the land” and ought not to be defunded.
So what happened to all other law of the land like immigration that are funded but not enforced? Obama is pressuring Congress to give him immediate CR spending authorization, increase the debt limit, and fund ObamaCare, so that he can pass an equally impossible immigration bill. Obama will not enforce laws he does not like and then wants more laws that will not be enforced, except by fiat, his executive orders that supersede Congress and SCOTUS.
"Sin is in" is exemplified by Mark Zuckerberg who stole the Facebook idea from three classmates at Harvard who sued and were compensated after the public offering. In similar fashion, Bill Gates stole Microsoft from IBM that paid him for the original development. Nearly all über rich seem to put their tax-exempt money to personal foundations that usually favor abortion, gay marriage, immigrant cheap labor, while exporting good jobs. Too often, the über rich got theirs and crawl selfishly into their shells.
Bill Gates and Warren Buffett combined excess stockholdings into the Gates Foundation (GF) that supports Planned Parenthood, world population control, promotes abortion, homosexual behavior, along with a host of large American icon companies including the likes of Howard Schultz and his Starbucks empire. Warren Buffett has donated over $10 billion to the Gates Foundation.
GF gave Planned Parenthood of America almost $12.5 million since 1998, including funds to lobby the UN to advance pro-abortion proposals. GF also gave nearly $21 million to International Planned Parenthood over a seven years period to promote abortions in third-world nations, South America, Africa, and Europe. Buffet announced he will leave about 80% of his estate to the Gates Foundation. How short sighted, to fund the killing of their potential customers.
"Sin is in" is exemplified by Wall Street that is “Dances in the Streets” as they holler and clap for the resolution to extend spending and debt, while the FED prints $85 billion more money monthly to bloat banks and Wall Street that will also get tax breaks on the stolen income.
But the problem with this one-party two-party system is that NOTHING Congress does is good. Every law is voluminous, fraught with conflicting regulations, totally unreadable, and undecipherable, allowing only K Street and lawyers to benefit. A common refrain is, “We know the law is not perfect but we’ll fix it later.”
But how many laters can be effectively dealt with as long as there is a Harry Reid in the picture? Maybe the country is getting to be a giant Detroit City, and demolishing it and starting over from scratch may be the best way out. As long as there are professional incumbents, the chances of fixing things are slim to none. If only there were a King that could dispense justice without the trivialities of democratically fraudulently elected politicians that know where the cookie jars are hidden, and how to make more cookies out of thin air.
There is wonderment and bewilderment as to why the anointed one has not been impeached or why he was reelected after the tangle created in the first term? The answer must be low-information voters that the 50% taxpayers must support the 50% takers.
Obama continues to get away with rape of the Constitution as foretold by Pogo, the comic strip alligator who in 1970 said, “We have met the enemy and they is us.” Many offer criticism for fighting the system, for being negative, for not being positive, for trying to change something that cannot be changed. Talk about a country of lemmings following false leaders over the fiscal and moral cliffs. A co-worker in the early 1960s was quick to say, “Don’t worry, nothing is going to turn out alright.”
The country is composed of lemmings marching to the drumbeat of free lunch, ObamaPhones, free everything, etc etc etc. In a fable, the Pied Piper is hired to get rid of the rats, and when payment is refused, the Pied Piper applies the same routine to the children, for the Pied Piper will be paid. Perhaps the Piper is being paid as we speak, in the form of about 55 million of our children having been sacrificed since Roe v. Wade in 1973, not including about another perhaps 55 million that would have been born to the murdered ones. The country has been so immunized to the abortion evil along with blatant sexuality and homosexuality that are seemingly bent on destroying traditional families along with Christianity that is persecuted in fact by AllahBama. It will take a REAL BLACK MAN to undo the damage done by a half-white black man – Dr. Benjamin Solomon Carson, who appears to be head and shoulders above the usual suspect white wannabes.
