The case of Masterpiece Cakeshop now hangs in the balance

The legal case of Jack Phillips came and went and now they wait with bated breath to find out how the Supreme Court rules and were Justice Neil McGill Gorsuch stands on the issue of religious freedom and freedom of conscience. We shall find out if voting for the Republican candidate is still the right thing to do for the Conservative Christian, or if the argument can finally be torpedoed.

We know why Jack Phillips is in court to begin with, and all because of the ideal that homosexual rights are the same as the rights of minority groups who were truly discriminated against in the past. In a piece written by Jack Phillips himself that was published in the USA Today; he says that he would sell your basic cookies, cakes etc anyone regardless of their faith and choices on who they go to bed with, and if the statement did not conflict with his faith, he would create one of his ‘masterpieces’ for you and whomever to gorge on. Charlie Craig and David Mullins however, wanted Phillips to create a cake that would affirm their ‘marriage.’ As Phillips said in his article, they were living their beliefs as Phillips was living his.

With Phillips as the owner, he told them quite clearly that he would not use his skill set to promote and affirm that ran in conflict with his beliefs. He would still sell them a cake, or whatever but he would not affirm their lifestyle or marriage. From the stories I have heard Craig and Mullins were enraged and the Rainbow Jihad coupled with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission came down on Jack like the weights in an Olympic competition. With the CCRC as progressive as they are, they naturally sided with Craig/Mullins and found Phillips guilty. Phillips was not willing to just give up and thus his day with the Supreme Court.

Charlie Craig meanwhile talked with the press saying; “This entire time Dave and I have just been asking to be treated equally in public. We’re two regular guys that just were wronged and decided to stand up for ourselves. Dave and I do not have an agenda, we all deserve fair and equal treatment, and that’s why we’re here today.”

This should bring up a lot of questions that the press should have asked. Why did you want Jack Phillips to affirm your marriage with his cakes? Why could not have taken your business to a gay friendly bakery? You say that have no agenda and you just want to be treated equally; why did you want to make a business transaction with Masterpiece Cakeshop? I honestly think that Craig/Mullins are not sincere in their statement about having no agenda. I honestly believe that they (and perhaps others sympatric to their cause) were searching for someone who would refuse service based on their so called ‘love of each other.” To paraphrase the old song from the heavy metal group Metallica, they wanted to seek and destroy a God fearing Christian and their business, and put other likeminded Christians on notice. This is just as much of a terrorist attack than any attack in which actual people have been killed. They are not alone, but this the one that made to the highest court in the country.

Progressives see the LGBT community as a force of arms in order to finally corner and marginalize Christians who believe in the Bible and take their faith seriously and literally. The public education system has done a good job in turning many children against the Christian faith or at least got them to embrace certain anti-biblical ideas that have crept into Christian teaching. So has our mainstream media which for many years pushed a liberal to progressive narrative on its viewers.

The LGBT community does not want to be told that their sexual acts are self-destructive to them and the people around them. They want that sexual fix, cause it “feels good.” They don’t want to be told that it is destructive. They might know it deep down, but like drugs they just keep doing it. Because they don’t want their neighbor to remind them of their impending fate, they have to force people to tell them, it is ok to be gay. While I disagree somewhat with Denver pastor Bob Enyart that telling a child that homosexuality is good will inoculate him or her from the Gospel of Jesus Christ (God through the Holy Spirit can still draw people to himself regardless), he is right about how the devil can use people to allow a community of people to die slowly. By using people to encourage wickedness, a community destroys themselves from within rather than without, with the approval of the community’s leaders, and much to the pleasure of the devil watching the people with glee, self-distrust slowly.

Will America as a whole go the same path? Justice Gorsuch could allow for such a fate, in the name of judicial precedent. If so, the LGBT battle will be elevated to the same level as the abortion fight for the progressives have supported two things that enable the destruction of humanity, and why Satan himself maybe pulling the strings of our justices in order for the American people to eventually perish, or cause another empire to fall.

Video: So, You Think You’re Tolerant?

Published

By

Leftists like to fancy themselves as being tolerant and Liberal, but they fall way short in both qualities.

Leftists will tell you that they are the most tolerant people who have ever lived, they will also scream at you for being a racist, xenophobic troglodyte if you happen to mention that you’re a conservative. They are supposedly ‘Liberal’, being in favour of Liberty while demanding it’s polar opposite – socialism.

Yes, if there is one constant in the universe, its that Leftists cannot be honest about who they truly are. This is what we love about our wonderful opponents on the nation’s socialist Left, for they are nothing like another group that went by the same nomenclature who also screamed at people in the streets with the motto: Common Good Before Individual Good. [Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz]

But let’s not talk about the epithets they project on their enemies, let’s talk about how they get along with everyone who just happens to agree with everything they say. A new PragerU video featuring Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report looked at who is really tolerant. He is a true Liberal that discovered that it is actually the Pro-Liberty Right that is more tolerant, go figure.

Are you tolerant? You probably think so. But who is tolerant in America today? Is it those on the left, or those on the right? In this video, Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report analyzes this question and shares his experience.

Welcome Home Liberals in your #WalkAway from the Socialist-Left.

Published

By

There is a new movement of Liberals leaving the Left, we on the Pro-Liberty Right need to welcome them home to where they belong.

#WalkAway is a new burgeoning movement of Liberals leaving the Socialist-Left that is being virtually ignored by the nation’s hopelessly biased Leftist media. Although it isn’t exactly a new phenomena that those who believe in “maximum individual freedom, open-hearted tolerance and a commitment to the truth” are abandoning the socialists with a whole slew of videos of people leaving the Left.  Now with the it’s headlong rush to go full socialist, many who cherish those freedoms have had enough, coincidently this is in agreement with a poll that shows that Voters Overwhelmingly Prefer Free Market to Socialism

True Liberals believe in individual freedom, tolerance and a commitment to the truth.

Andrew Klavan of The Daily Wire had a very insightful commentary, making the point that Liberals – persons such as himself, who believe in “maximum individual freedom, open-hearted tolerance and a commitment to the truth” have begun walking away from the Left and it’s belief in socialism – the opposite of liberty. He goes on to postulate that Leftists should have an equivalent movement to reject freedom and expand government power. His satirical video of the 5 reasons that Leftists should stay with their socialist movement is well worth perusing at your leisure.

It’s been a staple of political discourse that the nation’s Left has been a bit schizophrenic with some of its adherents openly embracing their collectivist ‘faith’. While others deny the obvious reality of their base ideology. Even some of the definitions of one their more deceptive labels are contradictory with traditional parts on individual liberties contrasted with this: a philosophy that considers government as a crucial instrument for amelioration of social inequities”. How that is done while conserving individual Liberty is not explained.

Leftist language mendacity.

It is another staple of the political discourse of the Socialist-Left to exploit the words of freedom to deceive the populace into supporting their national agenda. One of the Left’s favorite deceptions is the use of ‘Democratic’ pared with the current label of their collectivist ‘faith’ – socialism.

The Left of the modern-day political spectrum has always been one of ever-increasing government power. The end point of their journey is the destruction of freedom with full authoritarian collectivism. Contrast this with the Right standing for limited government conserving Liberty along with the preservation of civil rights.

Liberty or Liberalism are functionally incompatible with Socialism .

History has shown that Liberty dies in the end state of Leftism. Freedom has never survived in the bastions of socialist authoritarianism. Even the most ardent Leftist doesn’t ever try to explain the natural ‘progression’ of how their ideology can morph into its end state without becoming oppressive. One only needs to look at the old Soviet Socialist ‘Republics’, Communist North Korea or even Venezuela to see that as Leftism wraps it’s iron grip around a people it’s also a stranglehold on Liberty.

The best explanation Leftists can offer for this ‘progressive’ change into a dictatorship [that may or may-not be of the ‘proletariat’] is some sort of red herring distraction that normal government services are somehow socialist or that free nations are of some ‘mixed economy’ of some sort. This somehow supposedly ‘proves’ that oppressive regimes aren’t oppressive or something.

Topping this is the even more absurd excuse for the usual terminal condition of the Left’s base ideology is the even more preposterous contention that these dead-end socialist regimes are, somehow ‘far right’. Or there is the fallacy that these oppressive regimes weren’t really socialist in the first place but really of the contradictory phrase ‘state capitalism’.

It should be readily apparent that the Left’s collectivist base ideology means the death of individual freedom, tolerance and truth. Those who value these principles true Liberals belong on the right side of the political spectrum. This is clearly demonstrated by the fact that Liberalism and Liberty are functionally incompatible with the basic tenets of the Left’s collectivist base ideology

Welcome Home Liberals.

Therefore, with all of this being said, several points should be clear to everyone.

1. Liberalism is closely tied to Liberty – being “Favourable to or respectful of individual rights and freedoms”.
2. The base ideology of the Left is completely at odds to the cause of liberty.
3. True Liberals belong on the Pro-Liberty Right.

So, given this logical progression we of the Pro-Liberty Right should be welcoming our brethren in Liberty fleeing the Socialist-Left. It is time that we all recognize that the root word of Liberty and Liberal means that those who believe in freedom, tolerance and a commitment to the truth all belong in a big tent on the right side of the political spectrum. Granted, we all might quibble over triflings here or there, the larger point is that we all must unite to defeat – once and for all – a common collectivist foe.

The Takeaway.

We should be greeting those Liberals walking away from the Socialist-Left as the allies in Liberty. They truly belong with those on the political right who value freedom. An ever shrinking cadre of Leftists demanding the dead-end of socialism and the conservation of Liberty will be the result.

Celebrate #Liberty with Gun Pride Month #GunPrideMonth

Published

on

By

Firearms in the defense of Liberty made Independence day possible, Gun Pride Month is a commemoration of that fact.

The 4th of July and the independence of the United States of America wouldn’t have been possible without the force to defend Liberty. At present there are many of the nation’s socialist Left who obsess over depriving the people of that force. This will be a month-long celebration of firearms in the defence of Liberty.

Authoritarian Socialism can only be imposed by a force of arms.

The blunt fact is that the Left’s socialist national agenda can only be imposed at the point of a gun, this is why they obsess over depriving the people of their commonsense human Liberty of self-defense. Toward this end, the Liberty grabbers of the Left are working day and night to stigmatize guns and gun ownership, so this is a direct response echoing the founding fathers’ conceptions in the defense of Liberty. The Untied States became the greatest nation on earth because of foundational limitations on governmental power, with the most important being the common sense human right of self-defense.

Gun Confiscation sparked the Revolutionary War.

It is important to note that what became the war for independence began when his majesty’s troops tried to deprive the colonials of their fundamental human Liberties with gun confiscation. An idea the Left obsesses over now.  They can only do so by denigrating gun ownership/Liberty culture along with the tactics of divide and conquer. This entails attacking parts culture of Liberty culture in detail, attempting to defeat those portions before moving on to other sections. Thus they are going after those scary looking guns that have falsely labelled as ‘Military style’. Were they to succeed in depriving the people of their venerable AR-15s, they would soon enough go after another segment of Liberty culture.

The primary lesson of Gun Pride Month.

There would be no Bill of Rights were it not for the commonsense human Liberty of self-defence. In other words “Without the 2nd there would be no 1st”. That firearms are the last bulwark of Liberty, epitomised by this quote from Hubert H. Humphrey:

Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used, and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.

Senator Hubert H. Humphrey,
Comm.: Foreign Relations Minnesota

Firearms serve as a check on government power, a force possessed by the people that preserves their Liberty. The reality is that the Left obsesses over the deprivation of this fundamental human right because they want over control of the people, that is the bottom line of their Liberty grabber agenda.

The Schedule of events for Gun Pride Month.

So now that we’ve explained the reason for the season, this is the tentative outline for the festivities. During the month long celebration, each day of the week will have it’s own special designation:

#BLOATMondays [Buy Lots Of Ammo Today] – This should need no explanation. One cannot defend Liberty without the tools to do so. This includes practice ammunition to maintain what are very perishable skills. For you Liberty grabber Leftists out there, this means that someone with a few thousand rounds means they prefer to be safe, properly maintaining their skills.

#DGUTuesdays – a weekly celebration of that which the Liberty grabbers claim never happens.

#Full30 Wednesdays  – Celebrating a video channel that doesn’t try to suppress liberty with censorship.

#3DThursdays – Highlights the ever advancing 3d printer technology  that has rendered Liberty [Gun] control obsolete.

#Freedom Fridays – The day for everyone to bring another freedom defender into the fold showing them how to select and buy a new gunhow else are we going to reach the goal of 200 million gun owners with 700 Million guns?

#SaturdayShoots – Practice makes perfect and it’s lots of fun.

#SundayReload.

Week Long Celebrations.

Each week of the month of July will focus on some of the very important parts of Liberty Culture.

  • The first week will celebrate the 4th of July and the AR-15: The Modern Day Musket.
  • Week two will honour the organisations that defend our vital civil Liberties from the scourge of Socialism – the NRA, Gun Owners of America [GOA] as well as other civil rights organisations.
  • The third week of the month of July will commemorate all of the Pre-Constitution repeating firearm technologies the Socialist-Left would like to pretend never existed.
  • Next we will have Guns save Lives week focusing on deterrence and the millions of times each year that firearms preserve life.
  • Finally, week 5 will be a tip of the hat to all of the Liberty grabbers that have helped boost memberships in those aforementioned Civil Rights organisations the civil rights and caused more and more people to buy more and more guns. This will be a half week recognition of their unwitting contributions to the cause of Liberty that cannot be underestimated.

We will add special events such as Eugene Stoner day as time permits. Now go out there and celebrate Liberty – it will be well worth it just to upset the Leftists.
