In his New Year’s Day 2018 podcast, Kevin Swanson reminded his audience that the biggest dates in history are the creation of the word as explained in the book of Genesis, the first coming of Jesus Christ in which he would save us from sin, and the second coming in which Jesus Christ will judge the end of time…yes that will happen in the future. According to Swanson, history is focused on Jesus Christ.
Kevin Swanson calls the ruling of Roe Vs. Wade the worst decision in American history, and he is being proven correct. Since the ruling making abortion aka preborn baby murder legal, over 80 million babies were snuffed out because we as Americans, as humans were told that unborn children are not persons and it is OK to abort/murder them. Sacrificed on the altar of so-called choice and downright selfishness.
In World War II, 6 million Jewish lives were snuffed out because of Hitler’s passion to take them out, and 55 million people died overall at that time. Sadly with the progressive mindset in America’s high places, that number of 80 million is going be overlooked, and will not be viewed as either a holocaust and/or genocide. All in the name of personal gain (and “choice”) especially when it comes to getting sexual pleasure and gratification, and maintaining a belief in evolution which explains God almighty away and tells us that life was created out of random chance. In the end, it is the law of the jungle.
What is worst is that Americans are suffering from issue fatigue regarding the recriminalization of abortion, and/or trying to curb baby murder. The purpose of protesting against abortion/pre-born murder is to remind people of God being the creator and that he sent his son to one day die for our sins and that anyone who believes in Jesus Christ will have eternal life in the kingdom to come. It is God Almighty that gives Life, and due to that fact, you see why abortion is being pushed. Just another way to promote death, and give God the fist and worse the middle finger.
I think Christians and pro-lifers in general should change tactics on abortion issues. We really need to focus on logic and faith more than emotions. This is what got us into the pickle in the first place. In my post-election Roy Moore piece, I mentioned the character Stephanie Douglas Forrester from the long-running daytime drama “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
And only Stephanie Douglas Forrester could have beaten Brooke Logan once and for all…but that is just a silly TV daytime drama. I still love Stephanie’s passion to fight for what she wants, and call Brooke “the slut of the valley.”
I debated writing this up because giving Roy Moore any more attention at this point seems about as counterproductive as a thing can be. But I think it’s turning into a very good object lesson for any conservative voters who are willing to learn it.
Due to portrayer Susan Flannery’s retirement from her longtime role as Stephanie, her character was killed off. Still, we as pro-lifers and/or abortion abolitionists can take a few hints from Stephanie and her strong-willed, manipulative and protective ways; and there are Youtube clips to help us out. While we should have compassion for the women that are truly suffering after having their abortion, and leading them to pro-life pregnancy centers that can truly provide them with healing; the women that are proud of their baby murder like Gloria Steinem should be called out. So when you hear “abortion is a blessing” or women telling you to stay out of their lady parts, you know they are more interested in getting the sex without worry of carrying or procreating a child. Ask Illyse Hogue or Jill Filipovic. They have admitted to this mindset.
We should also call out the men that push their girlfriends and even wives to murder their children growing within them. After all, it was men who wanted to push population control and reduce the birth rate. The men are just as guilty for their selfish sexual desires as much as the women.
If we continue to accept abortion as a way of life, it will be no different than the days when the Nazis sent the Jews to their deaths or when slavery/ownership of certain people was legal in America. We can’t take a “live and let live” stance on this like many millennials have taken, thanks in part of our culture and its push of “situational ethics.” In the end, the tyrants who embrace situational ethics will use that to take out the people they hate with a passion. That could include myself or the persons who are reading this piece, and not just the popular conservative pundits or whatever. Kevin Swanson also points out how our sins may turn out in 2018 and beyond with the predictions he makes in the 2018 podcast. Believe it or not, Swanson predicts Justice Anthony Kennedy will rule in favor of Jack Phillips and Masterpiece Cakeshop out of Denver. Swanson also prays for a much-needed reformation in our world today.
Truth is not relative, and when it comes to pushing progressivism and Marxist ideals this is where the left throws out relativism and pushes certain absolutes. I just sit back and laugh at that. Thank you Mark Levin for pointing that out.
Americans say they are pro-life, but they don’t want to make that decision for anybody else. They are so committed to relativism, they cannot see themselves ever holding firmly to a moral absolute on anything. The term “pro-life” is losing its meaning with evangelicals.
We predict that the U.S. Senate will not cut Planned Parenthood funding. And we include our prognostications for 2018 on this program, and more importantly, our prayers to God for this year.
Remember what’s important in life
We all deserve forgiveness, the benefit of the doubt, and need to be reminded of what really matters from time to time. When you encounter someone who does something rude or mean or bad, avoid labeling them as a rude or bad person. Instead, give them the benefit of the doubt that they were just having a bad day/week/year and they are in a place where they have forgotten about what really matters in this life.
That it’s not about wealth and acquiring stuff. It’s about relationships and how we spend our time together. It’s about lifting each other up.
Have you ever gotten into that rut, where you have been hyper-focused on your job, or your hobby, or self-improvement? You were doing really well! You’ve gotten ahead, acquired a lot of great, new things; you make more money now, and you’ve gotten really good at whatever it is you were working on.
But then… You watch a show, a movie, maybe hear a song or a sermon, or read a story about humanity and how short this life is; About how we treat each other when we are trying to acquire too much… and it’s never enough; it’s never big enough; it never satisfies us.
But when you get that message again from that show… You recognize it, and you wake up. You stand up in the room, and you look around, and you see that all over the room everyone else still has their heads down. And very few are standing with you. But you see it now, and you say to yourself, “Why was I so focused on that? That doesn’t matter! My kids are growing up! My parents are aging, my grandparents dying. And I’ve been missing all of it… For what? For a house that’s 1000 sq. feet bigger? For a car that can drive a little faster?”
We all get sidetracked and stuck on this misleading path. That’s why we need to give each other the benefit of the doubt. Try not to label people as “bad guy” just because they did something once or twice, and recognize that people deserve forgiveness, and just need to be woken up again.
Remind them. Remind me when I forget. Please. It’s about Love. Family. Friends. Relationships.
Sell everything you own if it’s blinding you. Buy experiences instead- Experiences that you can share with one another. Hug. Laugh. Cry. Touch. Share. And remember. Remember what it’s all about.
A Memo to the Liberty Grabbers of the Left from the Pro-Liberty Right.
Hat Tip: Nazis Are Socialists (Meso)
A dose of reality for you Leftists opposing freedom on behalf of the gun owners of America.
Seeing that we gun owners been your rhetorical punching bag for several weeks, there are a few things we would like to point out to you folks opposed to the most essential of Liberties. You’ve spent all manner of airtime talking down to us, dictating what we ‘need’ with regard to our basic human rights. So now it is time for you to listen to a couple of brutal truths in the matter. These aren’t going to be ‘politically correct’, by any means, but such is usually not the case with cold hard reality.
From your ever so self laudatory language, you Liberty grabbers on the Left like to think of yourselves as noble warriors, out there ‘changing the world’ for the ‘Common good’ [Gemeinnutz in the German vernacular]. Fighting for Socialist… er. Social ‘Justice’ and all manner of flowery folderol [Cue mournful violin music]. Yes, you think of yourselves as ‘sacrificing’ for the ‘the children*’ no matter what that entails. Whether it’s all manner of fame on Youtube or Facebook, to endless praise from your echo chamber, there are no limits as to your willingness to signal your virtue to everyone.
*Unborn children excluded
Well, sorry to break it to you, but in the words of the Marchers: “We call BS!”
The fact is there is nothing more selfish than demanding that others be deprived of their ‘essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety’ for yourselves. You want others to sacrifice their freedom for some mythical gains in your perceived security. It would be one thing for you to give up your Liberty, but that isn’t the case is it? You are marching to demand that the basic human rights of others be stripped from them, that is self-centred in the extreme.
“Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves” ― Abraham Lincoln
Empathy is a very important human quality, so perhaps you should consider giving up some of your essential liberties to understand what is at stake for those of us on the Pro-Liberty side of the aisle. Maybe you should demand that you be stripped of your First amendment rights? Or perhaps Liberty Grabbers groups should be licensed before they can demand that others be deprived of their rights?
Oh, what’s that you say? You have a Constitutional right to free-speech or freedom of the press? That those rights ‘Shall not be infringed’? [to coin a phrase] Or that the slightest amount will lead to a slippery slope towards the loss of them all. Welcome to our world, where every time a Leftist lunatic decides to go on a mass murder spree, our Constitutional rights are suddenly on the chopping block. With it just being a question of how much of those rights we’re going to lose – if not everything.
Can we dictate what you ‘need’ in exercising your Rights?
Can we demand that you justify the keeping of your liberties? Can we arbitrarily decree that certain modes of speech are ‘Militaristic’ in style? Do you really ‘need’ to appear on the Tele 30 times a day? Do you really need a ‘high capacity’ smart phone? Do you really need to fire off 5 tweets in a minute just to kill off a basic human right?
Hypocrisy on parade: Liberty Grabbers have guns to protect themselves while denying that right to others.
Please note that the people in the Liberty Grabber movement you idolize are also complete hypocrites in that while they work tirelessly to take away our property and our Liberty, they are safe and secure surrounded by ARMED security. Yes, think about it, the people who rail against guns have no problem being protected by them. Were they to be true to their words, they would disarm their security details. If Citibank and Bank of America didn’t care to be hypocrites they would dismiss their armed security and announce it to the world. Oh, they have to deal with threats? So do the rest of us – and yet they want to make everyone else vulnerable to those threats while they stay safe and secure.
Here’s a hard dose of reality for you: We gun owners protect everyone, even you Liberty Grabbers.
The truth is that while you uselessly virtue signal your inestimable magnanimity, it is those of us on the Pro-liberty side who work to keep you people safe. This may come as a shock, but if you live in one of the states or localities that value Liberty, you are around concealed weapons every time you go out in public. Yes, you might find this to be too scary to think about, but every day you are protected by the deterrence effect of ordinary folks just like you [aside from their cherishing freedom that is] carrying around *Gasp* Firearms hidden from view.
Consequently, you don’t know who might be carrying a gun…. and neither do the criminals. Thus the value of an armed citizenry. They don’t know who may have the means to defend themselves, so they don’t know who to victimize, therefore everyone is protected.
The exception being The “Gun-Free” zone, that vestige of the Utopian fantasy world of the Left. Most mass shootings take place where the innocent are denied their basic human Liberty of self-defence. So what does that mean for you Leftists of the so-called “Party of Science”? It means that your absurd idea that a sign will stop a mass murder results in dead children. That is what you want everywhere, how does that even reach the threshold of rationality?
If you aren’t going to thank us for keeping you safe, could you at least leave us alone?
So why is all of this important? Because the people you have demonisd for weeks are the ones keeping you safe. Those you label as terrorist, splattered in blood are the people providing for your security. How is that for irony?
- We’re the ones who take the time endure the draconian hurdles put in the way of our basic human rights.
- We’re the ones who take the time to select the proper firearm and holster to carry concealed out in public.
- We’re the ones who practice with our weapons in case an emergency arises.
- We’re the ones who carry a cellphone and extra magazines for that potential emergency.
- And We’re the ones who will most likely have to deal myriad legal problem and legal fees for merely protecting ourselves, our families and even you people should it be necessary.
Now, we don’t expect you people to grateful for this protection you are afforded. Goodness knows you wouldn’t lower yourself to talk to those of us on the Pro-liberty side. But could you at least acknowledge the effort and perhaps stop obsessing over taking away our Liberty that keeps you safe?
The Collective Irony of the Left.
While the nation’s Socialist Left deviously pretends to be ‘Liberal’ or ‘Democratic’ it actually functions undemocratically against Liberty.
For all of their pretence about being ‘Liberal’ or ‘for the people’, the Left is extremely oligarchical. Examine the Left’s Socialist national agenda, taking note many of its beliefs that are handed down from a select few that are to be accepted by the rank and file without question. Also, consider what happens to those who stray from Leftist orthodoxy.
Contrast this authoritarianism of the nation’s Left with the free-thinking albeit chaotic nature of the Pro-Liberty, Conservatarian-Right. While the Left will all parrot the same talking points for the outrage of the week. It’s extremely difficult to convince those on the Right to use the proper word in describing the opposition. [ Leftist in place of Liberal to be exact ]
Leftists ‘Independently’ marching to the exact same music.
Look at the protest marches sponsored by the usual suspects of the oligarchical Left, events from around the nation will feature the same talking points emblazoned on the signs, the same slogans, down to the very same headwear.
Then look at what happens to those who may stray from the Left’s authoritarian plantation. Hollywood is supposedly all-inclusive of every viewpoint, except those who espouse Conservatarian, Pro-Liberty ideals.
This is the larger point inspired by a column by Dennis Prager in The Daily Wire were he first makes the point recurring point that it’s leftism — not liberalism – that is the problem here. He goes on to talk about Whatever The Left Touches It Ruins. This is endemic to cases of a small cadre of Leftists deciding what is artistic or how the country’s history should be taught.
The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism — not liberalism — is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the left touches it ruins.
So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the left and the Democratic Party:
The most obvious — and, therefore, the one more and Americans can resonate with — is the near destruction of most American universities as places of learning.
When you attend an American university, you are taught to have contempt for America and its founders, to prefer socialism to capitalism, to divide human beings by race and ethnicity. You are taught to shut down those who differ with you, to not debate them. And you are taught to place feelings over reason — which is a guaranteed route to eventual evil.
So, too, one cannot watch late-night television if one desires to simply be entertained before drifting off to sleep. Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and other hosts have changed late-night TV into left-night TV. Why merely be funny when you can use your monologues to advance your left-wing views?
If you treasure American and Western civilization, fighting the left — something all liberals and conservatives need to do — is the greatest good you can engage in at this time.
This is what happens when an ever-shrinking band of authoritarian Leftists decide that art should be scatological instead of uplifting. Or the example of small groups of ‘Comedians’ deciding that we have to be made to care about their ‘progressive’ agenda. Then there is the case of the corporate leadership of Citibank or Bank of America arbitrarily deciding the limitations of our basic human Liberty of self-preservation. [Note that Wells Fargo is bucking the trend standing up for Liberty] These are all examples of a Leftist ‘elite’ making decisions from their virtual mount Olympus for everyone else to follow.
The Take Away
While the Left likes to keep up the pretence of being ‘Democratic’ or ‘Liberal’ for that matter, they are neither. This is why we must do everything we can to expose the Left’s deceptions whenever possible.
