New Movie Exposes Government Invasion of American Families

Washington, D.C., November 17, 2011 – Today, ParentalRights.Org released an online docudrama, Overruled: Government Invasion of Your Parental Rights, which outlines today’s dangers facing American parents in their ability to direct the upbringing and education of their children.

The film, which runs 35 minutes at OverruledMovie.com, focuses on three real-life American family cases in which parental rights were egregiously violated by the government: a medical care case, an educational freedom case, and a religious freedom case. The movie also warns against adoption of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child. This treaty would override virtually all child and family laws in the United States and grant ultimate authority to international bureaucrats.

Overruled describes why the adoption of the proposed Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is the only means to halt the parental rights violations which are taking place all over America.

“American parents just assume that their traditional right to make sound decisions for their children is fully protected in our legal system,” said Michael Farris, President of ParentalRights.org. He added, “Overruled reveals how precarious our rights are in today’s legal climate – and the movie makes it clear that we can and must fix the problem before it is too late.”

Fortunately, the American people overwhelmingly support traditional parental rights. A Zogby poll last year that surveyed over 2,000 people found that 93% of Americans agree with the traditional definition of parental rights, which is the ability to raise their children free from government interference so long as no abuse or neglect is taking place.

Farris said, “We need to capitalize on this strong support all across the country and pass the Parental Rights Amendment to prevent government officials from unnecessarily interfering with families.”

Scott Scharpen, the film’s Executive Producer and chairman of the board of ParentalRights.Org, was proud to announce that Overruled is presented by ParentalRights.Org, a non-profit grassroots organization focused on passing the Parental Rights Amendment. Overruled is available online free of charge at OverruledMovie.com.

Our legal system seems to be usurping our rights on every front.  First, it was activist judges ruling according to their own political beliefs and setting legal precedents  (thus ‘legislating from the bench’).

Recently, in Indiana,  Justice Steven David ruled that Indiana citizens have

“no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers. We believe however that a right to resist unlawful police entry is … incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence.” “

Can this be right–a judge has ruled that Indiana citizens do not have the right to resist if police violate their constitutional rights by barging into their home when they wish?

This led to  Newton County Sheriff (Don Hartman) making comments to the effect that he would conduct door to door, warrantless searches if he deemed it necessary!

Let this be a reminder that there are people, especially in law enforcement, who find it . . .  inconvenient . . . for us to have Constitutional rights.  Now that things have started to go their way, they are going to push it as far as they can.

People in Indiana had better treat this like any other type of bullying–fight back and don’t stop until they cry for mercy!  Meaning:  resist, and use every legal means to bring these plans to a halt!

Every time I turn around, I hear of another incursion against our Constitutionally protected rights.  Let me repeat again here–yes, there are threats of terror, etc.  But the case is being overstated, exaggerated and used as a rationale for stripping us of our rights.

As I’ve said in many other posts, I believe America is being judged by God.  Lets remember that the laws our nation was founded upon originated with God, and He wants us to uphold them.  (It’s another matter when the laws of men run counter to the laws of God.)

We have become a nation of law breakers, and we think little of it.  It is no longer a mark of shame to be a felon.  Look at all the celebrities that are, and no one seems to think any less of them!

By becoming lawless, we have disrespected God and opened the door to tyranny.  In large part this growing ‘police state’ is the consequence for our misbehavior.  However, not all of us are misbehaving.  And, as they say, ‘two wrongs don’t make a right’.  Just because the people are not following the law does not make it right for the government to break it too.

We still have (some of) our Constitutional rights, but we are losing them fast.  Those who are creating the police state are using the argument that the Constitution no longer fits the reality of today.   This broad shift to lawlessness, over the past few generations, is making their case for them.  (Notice Judge David’s use of the word ‘modern’, above.)

I see two things that need to happen, and quickly, if we wish to turn this around.

  1. Repent–in other words, do your part to return to behaving lawfully.  Show respect for God’s law.  Don’t only obey when you think you’ll get caught if you don’t.
  2. Resist.  Know your rights and use them.  Patiently and calmly resist tyranny.  Stand on your rights–the ones you voluntarily give up today will be legally taken from you tomorrow.

I’m going to include links to a couple of videos because, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.  I want you to see how the mindset of law enforcement personnel has changed.  Somehow, in the last few years, they have begun to view the American people as an enemy.  From the things I am seeing lately, the attitude appears to be widespread.  It is an attitude that is very confrontational, intimidating, and arrogant.

As you watch these videos (and please do watch them!),  notice the bullying attitude of law enforcement.  Also, please pay careful attention to those who are standing on their rights . . . firmly, but respectfully.

Here are a few notable quotes from the first video.

‘Citizen ignorance of the law sometimes allows police to get away with more than they otherwise would’

‘Not everybody knows what the law is and sometimes not even all the  police officers know what the law is’

‘The unfortunate reality is, often police officers can intimidate people into not doing things they otherwise legally could.’

Eugene Volokh, law professor, UCLA  (http://volokh.com/)

I probably wouldn’t even be writing this post, except that I watched the entire second video last night (2 hours, it moves kind of slowly).  What I saw there is what I want you to see–the relentless attack on our freedom, by police who were standing on their self-vperceived authority, but not standing on the law.  (They forget that the only authority they have is that which is granted by law–and that WE hire them to protect US. )

Even if you disagree with the ideas presented in the second video, I hope that you will watch to see what I am talking about–to see how our rights are being infringed on and how, today in America, people who have different views are being demonized.

(The whole point of the second video is that there are people whose questions are not being answered, who are being ignored, and who deserve compensation for injuries that they are not receiving.  The video shows their quest to be heard.)

Again, back to a very important point made by Eugene Volokh (law professor, UCLA ):

‘The unfortunate reality is, often police officers can intimidate people into not doing things they otherwise legally could.’

Sometimes this is intentional–when police deliberately cause people to believe they have authority backing them up.  I saw a quote from Don Hartman (the Indiana sheriff that wants to do warrantless door to door searches).  His point was that he felt people would be glad to comply if they felt it would help law enforcement find a suspect.

This is sad because it’s true–and because the people we are supposed to be able to trust are deliberately misleading us into surrendering our rights.

Most people would open the door and gladly let them in.  But your Constitutional rights say you don’t have to, unless you are presented with a search warrant.  I advise that you don’t.  Even if you have nothing to hide. 

The issue here is not whether there is something or someone in your home that shouldn’t be.   The issue isn’t about being nice, respectful, and cooperative.  The issue is that law enforcement has become a bully who is now bent on taking away your rights–so you’d better stand your ground!

You may not need to use your 4th Amendment right, but you had better stand on it anyhow–because if everyone starts surrendering it voluntarily, it will make the case that the citizens no longer feel it is relevant, and it will be much easier to legally overturn it.

The other point made, in the first video,  is that some issues (such as who, what, where, and when you may videotape), still have no firm legal precedent.  The way that the law will be written (either to protect our right to videotape, or to deny it) is by having a legal precedent set.  Then lawyers will carry out the debate and a judge will decide.

Legal precedent is set when someone goes to court over an issue–in other words, someone gets in trouble over the issue, and they fight back in court and say they have the right to do what they did.  Then lawyers carry out the debate and a judge  decides. The judge’s decision is usually appealed  and the case then moves higher and higher through the court system until it is finally decided.

So, do not be afraid of getting in trouble for standing your ground.  If the police cannot give you a specific statute that you are violating, or they give you one that you know doesn’t fit the circumstances, stand your ground.  If you do get in trouble, in a case like that there are organizations that will provide your legal defense (I believe it’s usually free), for the opportunity to argue the subject in court in order to set legal precedent.  You can also publicize your case by notifying the media, or organizations that are trying to raise public awareness over the issue.

Remember, this is how bullies work: by intimidation.  (It is the same tactic terrorists use.)  They prey on people’s fears.  The only way to deal with a bully is in the same vein.

Notice, in the videos, that when people stand firm (and have videotape evidence!), the police will retreat to the bounds set for them by the law–but it only seems to happen when people persist in standing their ground.  In other words, they will eventually stop bullying you, when they realize it isn’t going to work and they can’t trap you into doing something wrong.  (I can’t stress enough the importance of being courteous, calm and non-threatening!!)

People, whether we like it or not, things are changing.  Even Amish dairy farmers are being bullied!  Allowing yourself to be intimidated will not buy you peace!  (And there is a name for those who cave to intimidation:  cowards. )

The more you surrender, the more a bully will demand.  If you want to have any freedom and liberty at all, you are going to have to find the courage to stand for what you know is right.

If you aren’t up for the fight, you had better find a big rock to hide you and your family under–and good luck to you.

It used to be that you could just mind your own business and you’d be ok–but times have changed.  This is not a case  of people having confrontation because they ‘went looking for it’, or lived a life that pushed the limits.  Now, confrontation comes to those who are obeying the law and doing things that the Constitution says we have the right to do.

If we don’t stop this in its tracks, it will get worse.  Then you will see the day when confrontation overturns every rock just to find you!

Are you among the many people that cast a suspicious eye towards every new invention, and every new government initiative?  If you’ve read the book of Revelation, and know about the dreaded ‘Mark Of The Beast’, I don’t think you can help it.  (Or are you someone who thinks it’s all just foolish paranoia?)

We are missing the point!  We are so intently watching the one hand, that we are not seeing what the other is doing.

RFID chips are not evil–but in the hands of evil people they can be something to fear.  A national identity card is not evil, nor are eye scanners, but in the hands of evil people they can provide power and control.  These are the sort of things we have been worried about for decades, but I say ‘stop worrying!’ . . . about these things, and be concerned instead, about the type of government we are creating!!

I agree that communism and socialism are bad.  I don’t want America to go down that road–that’s not the way I want to live!  We’re getting closer to describing the problem, but even this isn’t the issue!!  The issue is the type of government that has so much control over our lives that it dictates how we must live, and enforces compliance with brutal efficiency!  I don’t think that type of government is necessarily limited to communist or socialist regimes.

These other issues are important, and we need to stay vigilant–but lets not get so intently focused on them that we fail to see that changes are quickly being made which have put us on the path to a totalitarian government!!  I may be wrong, but I don’t think it would make much difference whether a Republican, a Democrat, and Independent, or a Socialist sits on the presidential throne.

We have just witnessed the birth of a big, powerful, new Amerikan government that hems us in and watches our every move . . . that has access to every phone call or email . . . that can track our whereabouts most of the time . . . that abolishes the rights we have legislated for our protection . . . that punishes and eliminates dissent–branding us as terrorists or traitors . . . that no longer is comprised of representatives that are chosen by the people . . . that dictates to the press how, what, and when it can report . . . that denies us a say in how we are governed . . . that eliminates our freedom to speak in opposition . . .  that determines the standard of living that is ‘fair’ for us to have . . . that takes authority over their children away from parents . . . that makes it illegal to disagree . . . that takes more and more power away from the people and keeps it for itself . . . that submits us, regardless of our will, to a global ruling authority . . . !!  Our new government is a baby beast, with a life of its own.   Don’t be fooled because it is small.   Now that it is born, it will grow, and grow, and grow!

I don’t care if you are a Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, Indepent, Libertarian, or what have you–

Is this the kind of government you want to live under?

Again, forget about the individual issues for a moment–just take a good look at the government structure that is being built!!  Look, most of all, at the new regulatory agencies and enforcers.  Everything is being designed from a viewpoint of forced compliance. The Amerikan government is no longer a framework, within which we can pursue our dreams–it has become a prison, from which we cannot escape–where we live, in fear, a life devoid of freedom and choice.

The agenda may, or may not, be to your liking.  That is not the issue.   The policies and agenda can change, depending on who is in power.  But what won’t change is the structure.  What won’t be returned is our freedom or our personal power.  THIS is the kind of government that conceives of an idea like ‘The Mark of the Beast’ and imposes it on the people.  This is what you need to worry about–not the tools that will be used, but who is wielding them! Do you still think it’s a good idea to feed this baby beast?

And, as if living with that kind of oppression weren’t bad enough, you can rest assured that the punishment for any sort of noncompliance will be much worse.  No longer will you be able to shout in protest: ‘I have my rights!!’, because you won’t (have any rights).

Don’t assume you can hold a demonstration or go on strike.  Don’t assume your Miranda Rights will still be guaranteed.  Don’t assume you’d still be entitled to one phone call.  Don’t assume the court would provide you a lawyer if you can’t afford one.  Don’t assume that you’d be innocent until proven guilty.  Don’t assume that you could get out on bail.  Don’t even assume you’d have the right to a trial.

You see, what all the ‘Tea Partiers’, ‘Patriots’, etc.  are fighting for, is that our CONSTITUTION remain in effect!  Because that is all that protects us from the rule of tyrants. (And tyrants are the ultimate terrorists!!  It just happens that, when they are in power, they clothe themselves in government uniforms–which lend them an aura of legitimacy.)

Anyone telling you that the protests and Tea Parties are about something different is either missing the point, or they’re lying to you!

Now that you know what we’re fighting for, let me ask you this:

Shouldn’t all Americans be fighting side by side in this battle?

I’m enjoying a pleasant, late summer lunch with a couple of friends. Despite two of my six kids bickering a bit, and the yard needing mowed, and a leaky faucet dripping, I’m pretty content. You might even say I’ve gotten a bit lazy, spending a lot of afternoons napping in my hammock.

We’re joking around when I notice something different. We’ve been beset by the usual assortment of wasps and yellow jackets, but there’s one here I’ve never seen before. I first notice it as I go to take a bite of my burger. This guy is nearly inside and is wrestling with a piece of meat that it has apparently chewed loose. Something about his manner convinces me to just let him have it. Hoping that will be the end of it, I go back to my conversation.

Suddenly, my friend Miguel leaps out of his seat with a look of terror on his face. We can’t persuade him to sit down and for a couple of minutes, we can’t even get him to speak coherently. He pulls us towards the house, ranting about his village. As far as I know, he’s from LA. Finally we get him to take a breath and start over.

He tells us how, one spring when he was a boy, he journeyed to the nearest city with his uncle. It was a two day walk. When they returned home, everyone in the village was dead! No one was ever able to figure out what had happened, but there were puncture wounds on the bodies.

While we were eating and joking, a wasp had landed on his plate and it brought those horrible memories rushing back. He remembered seeing a few of these wasps before!  He had watched them building a nest in a tree stump once, when he was just a kid, and he is certain that it was the autumn before his trip to the city with his uncle!  He had never thought anything of it until now, but suddenly he was sure he knew what had happened to his village. Before that autumn, the people of his village had never seen those wasps, and he never saw them again-until now.

‘What wasps?’, our friend Alex keeps asking. Alex is an amateur naturalist, so he really knows his bugs. Overcome by curiosity, he goes back to the table and waits for one to appear. This guy is fearless. I’ve thought about nicknaming him ‘plays-with-bees’. A few minutes later I see him slowly walking backwards, his face very pale. He makes a wide circle around the table and comes back to where we’re waiting.

‘You have really got a problem’, he says. Turns out he had recently read about a particular species of killer wasp. Because they were supposed to be found only in Mexico, he hadn’t paid too much attention. But he felt certain this was the same wasp.

According to him, this species of wasp was predatory, aggressive and more dangerous than killer bees! In late summer a few would search out a good location and set up a nest. Then, during the winter, deep inside the nest, the numbers would explode. In the spring, on the first warm day, they would come out en masse. They were very sensitive to any sort of vibration near their nest, even a voice, and would respond by swarming and attacking. Their sting carried a strong toxin that made it lethal. There was no antivenom.

As abruptly as they appeared, they would disappear. Then in late summer, far away, a few would appear and search out a new location and set up a nest. It was also reported that no known insecticide had any effect on them.

I’m usually pretty calm and logical, but I was starting to panic. That was partly because I was noticing that a few of these wasps were going in and out of a tree stump I hadn’t gotten around to clearing out. The other reason is that the kids had started playing a rowdy game of tag and were running in all directions.

Now, let’s pause a minute. What do you think I did next? Do you think I insisted that Miguel again give me all the details of the spring that all the people of his village had died? Do you think I spent much time debating whether he could really have remembered something he had seen just once, so many years ago? Do you suppose I demanded that Alex provide me the source of his information, or tell me what his credentials were?

Actually, I did, to some extent. And soon I was convinced that both of them knew what they were talking about, were being honest, and their stories were in sync.  Then I sprung into action!

Soon the kids were safely corralled and the three of us were using one of Alex’s nets to catch and kill the wasps. By evening, we were pretty sure we’d gotten them all. Then I doused that stump and set it ablaze!! You see, it made a whole lot more sense to dive into danger and wipe them out while there were just a few, than to let their numbers explode and have it be impossible to overcome them.

The truth is, this didn’t really happen. It’s what we used to call a fable, and at the end of a fable was a moral. So, in case you didn’t catch it, the moral is this:

It is better to dive into danger and tackle a situation when it is small, than to wait until it has grown to such proportions that even tremendous effort is unlikely to result in victory.

So, why did I create this fable? To encourage you to take action now, while it is possible to make a difference! I don’t have time, in this post, to elaborate on what I am saying below. If you are just now hearing that there is a problem in America, please read my other posts for more explanation.

This administration has hijacked the country and is furiously building the framework for a new government. At the same time, forces are at work to destabilize things to the extent that this new government can seize power.

We are standing on the verge of anarchy. New corruption is being revealed every day. The old system is crumbling and it is too corrupt for us to go back to anyway. The new system being built is going to strip us of our rights and freedom to self-govern. If we allow it to continue, it may be impossible to ever defeat!

We must stop what the Obama administration is building, sweep the filth and corruption out of Washington, and reinstitute a stable form of government, free of corruption! And we must do it soon! This is urgent!

We are very vulnerable right now, and will continue to be, until we have established a stable government. Our international enemies are keenly watching our situation, forming alliances and moving into position to attack.

Yes, it is very important to be sure you are getting sound, honest information. But it is also important, after you do, to move quickly!

PLEASE, quickly start doing your own research. Check the facts, find out what is going on. And as soon as you are convinced, dive in! Yes, there is danger now in resisting this but, if we wait, the danger will multiply exponentially and the chances for success will GREATLY diminish!

I see this situation as a cicada (a nasty, ugly beast , in my opinion). It has crawled up out of the ground in the darkness and is still encased in its cocoon/exoskeleton. It cracks and the nasty little beast emerges. It stretches and sits, and waits, while it dries out and hardens. Then it flies away–and good luck if you want to catch it then. You’ve got to catch it some time between when it emerges and when it’s fully formed. This is a very small ‘window of opportunity’ that occurs in the dead of night.

So too, what is going on in our government today has been happening in darkness, but now light is shining on it and revealing the details. The window of opportunity to stop it is small. As soon as you are convinced, please act!

By no means am I advocating violence. We are being baited, in many ways, to do something that will allow them to justify taking drastic action–both against us and in seizing power. Please do not fall into that trap!

Be strong, be bold, be honest and speak out! Do whatever you can by legal means. Oppose every illegal, unconstitutional move they make. Surround them. Push back. Don’t give in. Don’t give up.

**We need our God and our guns–we need God always, and we need our guns, as a last line of defense if we are attacked by our international enemies. Our military personnel are spread far and wide, and are being depleted in the ongoing efforts in the middle East. We need our military back at home now, for our own defense. For that reason, please do all you can to help protect the 2nd amendment-our right to bear arms. An armed populace can be a powerful deterrent to foreign invasion!**

It’s Time to Push Back!

Has my silence been giving the wrong impression?

For several decades I have been silent–a spectator. I may have written one or two ‘letters to the editor’, but I’m not sure. I never called in to voice my opinion on a talk radio show. I never held up a sign at a rally. In fact, I’m not sure I ever WENT to a rally!

I am starting to believe that my silence may have spoken louder than words. I think that my failing to exercise my freedom of speech may have given the impression that it wasn’t important to me. That by not giving voice to my opinions, it was assumed I was aligned with the majority.

Well, now I’m ‘going postal’ in the blogosphere. Realizing I might lose my right to speak out, I’ve decided to give my viewpoints while I still can.

Our rights have been eroding for a long time. At first it was our own fault. We willing yielded our right to speak by not exercising it. Later, it began to get a bit uncomfortable as ‘political correctness’ swept the nation, but we submitted to that too. The final stage will be to wrest away from us the portion of that freedom that we have held onto.

This is a pattern that repeats itself all around us. It is a principal by which things in this world operate.

We have realized this to some extent-as summarized by the popular phrase ‘if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it’. This is often referring to physical fitness or mental ability, but it applies across the board. What you don’t use, you will ultimately lose.

Take another example from nature. Things have a way of encroaching. If you take time to notice, many weeds creep into your lawn, or garden, from around the edges. Let’s say you take a laid back approach when you mow. You hate to do it so you rarely do. When you get around to it there are thick weeds and small saplings around the edges. So, being laid back, you don’t feel like confronting them and you mow around them. Each time you mow, you give up a little more of your yard because they keep encroaching, pushing further and further in.

Freedom is not a natural state. There is always something encroaching. If you aren’t willing to risk a confrontation, you will end up ceding more and more of your liberty. Our founders knew this and they put in place checks and balances. They realized that, being most closely woven into our lives, our government would be our first greatest threat. Outside enemies come in second. The greatest threats to our liberty are going to come from within.

To keep your freedom you must, at the very least, hold onto the territory that you already have. In America we have certain rights, but if we don’t exercise them, we will find them gone. Most of us probably thought it was enough to put our rights up on a shelf–handy and close, if the occasion should arise that we needed to exercise them. Now, if I leave my car parked in the driveway for twenty or thirty years, I’d be foolish to expect it to work properly when the need arises. So it is with our rights.

If you prize your rights, you’d better use them! Even if it just means taking them down off the shelf every few months, and using them to keep in practice. When you don’t exercise your rights, you imply that you may be willing to surrender them.

It’s time to fight back against the encroachment. It’s time to push back! And this time, lets not be content just to preserve our original boundaries. While we’re at it, lets push farther and take some new ground!

Our first & second Amendment rights are the most in peril right now.

“Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

‘Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.’

It’s time to hold a ‘fire drill’! Please:

* Choose a religion and exercise it!
* Speak out boldly!
* Support the press that tells the truth.
* Assemble peacefully.
* Petition the government as often as necessary.
* Buy a weapon for self defense.

Even if these are things you don’t ordinarily do–in fact, ESPECIALLY if these are things you don’t ordinarily do-do them now! Let me give you some good reasons to:

* You care most about what you are invested in. If you choose a religion, speak out, watch the news, assemble peacefully, sign petitions and buy a weapon, you are going to notice when someone attempts to take that right away from you, and you are going to care!
* Our exercise of our rights makes it clear to those who would take them that: we value our rights, we will notice if they attempt to take them away, and we will probably fight to preserve them. Using your rights can be a powerful deterrent to those who would think to take them away.
* If anyone DOES attempt to rob us of those rights, a great cry will go up, that people all around the world will witness. Most evil prefers to operate in secret!

Let’s push back–hard!!

America–Hijacked!!
Is The Transformation To Communism Already Well Underway?

 

 

(Continued from Part 3, ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’)

What a great responsibility we have! We are one of the few countries where the people have the power of governing themselves! We are one of the few, and probably the best equipped, to delay and frustrate the plans of the antichrist in setting up his government! The date he will take the throne of world government has not been set. The American people may be the only ones who can delay it–by standing up for our rights and refusing to give up our rights to govern ourselves! We can not stop what God has said will happen, but we don’t have to allow it to happen here, now!

God has entrusted us with much and much will be required of us. We–individual Americans–have a grave responsibility, not just for ourselves, but for freedom loving people all over the world,to resist! How disappointed God will be–after giving us such great natural resources, inspired founding documents and direction, prosperity, freedom, and understanding–if we squander it and allow the world to be taken captive by the antichrist!

I believe America’s whole foundation & existence was divinely ordained to put an obstacle in the way of Satan’s plan at this very point in time! I believe we are called to use our freedom & constitutionally guaranteed rights to resist and expose the truth about Satan’s plan to the world, at this very hour, while we still have those rights! This is the fulfillment of Christ’s words in Matthew 24:14:

‘And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.’

That is us, American believers! And each of us now has the freedom & the tools to preach the gospel to people throughout the entire world, from the comforts of home! We can be at the forefront of this great mission!

I believe the words ‘for a witness’ hold special significance. I believe this means that we, while the events spoken of in the end times prophecies are unfolding, will be explaining them to people throughout the world, and sharing the gospel message! No one will be able to say they didn’t understand what was happening, and who was its author, if we do what we have been divinely inspired to do–in this very hour! Our message will be the ‘witness’ to them whereby they will later be judged as to whether they understood what they were participating in!

Don’t be mistaken though, if you answer the call, you will likely give your life in the process. You will likely be one of the ‘multitude in white robes’ who were martyred during the ‘time of great tribulation’ for spreading the word of God and the testimony/witness of the meaning of the events that are unfolding.

The first of the seven seals (written about in the book of Revelation, Holy Bible) has been opened. The four horsemen of the apocalypse are being released (invisible spiritual beings, empowered by God to pour out His judgment upon an unrepentant world).

The rider on the white horse has been loosed upon the world, bent on conquest. This is not a conquest of war and bloodshed, but it is a subjugation, a seizure of freedom from those that resist, and a seduction to those willing to surrender.

The other three horsemen will soon follow. Be on the watch for the second (he causes men to kill each other-don’t assume it just means in the context of war), the third (food prices will skyrocket-it will cost an average day’s wages for a loaf of bread), and the fourth (death–by weapons, famine, plague & wild animal attacks).

This is a warning to you of some of the dangers America is now facing from within while, simultaneously, God’s judgment is starting to be poured out on the earth. Most people are unaware that America is under siege from within, and will soon be attacked from outside as well. We are surrounded by enemies! Our only hope is in God. Repent and pray for His intervention and deliverance!

(Separate blogs will explain the dangers mounting against us from our enemies outside our borders, what prophecies say will happen to America, and whether there is any hope for us.)

The Drunken Whore

(Continued from Part 1, ‘Oh Yes He Does Get It’)

You know what, this world is not my home. I’m just a traveler and this is a brief stop on my way home. A rest stop on the way to eternity. If everybody really wants a one world government, and I can see some justifications for it, then let them have it! But they should be careful what they wish for! What we first submit to willingly, becomes a yoke of iron upon our necks!

There WILL BE one world government. I don’t want to see it happen, because I’ve read the end of the book–I KNOW how that turns out! But, if that’s what the people are ready for, so be it. This has been a free country. If the last free choice made BY THE PEOPLE is to surrender that freedom, then fine.

But I am MAD AS HELL, that it is being foisted upon us! This is not what the majority of Americans want! And may I be so bold as to say, if that is what you want, then leave! We wish to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave! I still have the right to speak, the right to vote, the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. How dare you try to take that from me!

Most of the rest of the world loves your ideas–so go somewhere else and join them! Leave those of us who prize our freedom to live in our own little country and mind our own business! (That’s really what we should have been doing all along! Instead, we seem to have initiated this whole global domination thing, but in a benign way, of course . . . ?)

As I said, there WILL BE one world government, but NOT IN MY BACKYARD! If that is what you want, do it somewhere else! You are not going to have my help to begin it here in America!!

People, please wake up and exercise your rights while you still have them. Obama is not the antichrist, but he foreshadows him. The antichrist will be like Obama but bigger, faster, more charming, more cunning, more deceptive, more popular, more powerful, more audacious. And he WILL be the leader of this world government that is coming.

If you can’t see beyond Obama’s facade, how are you ever going to recognize the antichrist when he comes? If you are a little uncomfortable with the changes now, but not enough to act–how comfortable do you think you will be when the antichrist takes the reigns? Unless God intervenes, with the path that we are now on, the antichrist will be our next leader!!

(Continued in Part 3, ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum ‘)

2010 Census Questions

I’m a little ashamed of myself.  I too got caught up a bit in the hysteria over the 2010 Census questions.  But, before you decide that this is where you ‘draw your line in the sand’, let me give it to you ‘in a nutshell’.

Here is a link to the proposed questions, as submitted to Congress in March 2007 (not during the Obama administration).  You can decide for yourself.:

2010 Census & ACS Survey

To summarize: Every 10 years the CENSUS is taken.  It is NOT mandatory that you participate.  The next will be taken in 2010, some time after April. Most of these questions have been asked for the last 200 years, and most people wouldn’t have a problem with them.

The part that people are upset about is the AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY.  This is now taken every year, with about 1 in 6 households being chosen to participate.  This IS mandatory, with fines up to $5,000 for not providing a truthful answer to the questions.  This is where the intrusive questions are asked.

At the above link you can see each question, along with an explanation of the date it was included in the census &/or survey and the reasons the question is being asked.

From what I could see, all of the questions were being asked to tailor existing social service programs and benefit levels to the needs of the individual community.  I happen to have familiarity with a number of these programs and can confirm that they depend on this information.

That being said, certainly the information could be used for other purposes.  It also requires trust to give up so much personal information and, frankly, this administration spent most of the public’s trust in its first 100 days.

Besides these questions being submitted to Congress, for approval, a year and a half before Obama was elected, another thing to note is that these questions are the same ones from the 2000 ‘long form’ census, with the exception of one that is being dropped (regarding military service) and 3 that are new:

  1. What type of health insurance do you have? (multiple choice)
  2. Marriage History: change of marital status in last 12 months?  How many times married?  Year of last marriage?
  3. Do you have a service-connected disability rating from the VA? (Veteran’s Administration)

I am not convinced of the rationale behind the Marriage History questions.  However, a ‘new HEALTHY MARRIAGE grant program’ is mentioned.  I can’t say I’ve heard of it myself, but I expect it is legitimate.  If so, then the questions might be justified.

So, as for me, I guess I won’t be exercising nonviolent civil disobedience, but will go ahead and answer the questions-except perhaps the new ones regarding marriage.

My main concern however, is the involvement of ACORN which is currently under investigation-and rightfully so, as it appears.  If I were to refuse to answer any questions, it would be because ACORN is conducting the survey.  I say, offer the job to the wonderful Senior Citizens that volunteer at the polls in my city.  With them asking the questions, I’d feel comfortable answering.

(In the past, when the 10 year Census was conducted, most people received the ‘short form’, but some received the ‘long form’ that asked additional questions.  A couple of changes have been made:

  • The census dropped the additional questions and now is only ‘short form’ and still is only every 10 years.  It is asked of everyone, and is voluntary, but not too intrusive.
  • The additional questions became the ‘American Community Survey’ which is now taken every year.  It is sent to approximately 1 in 6 households each year.  It is mandatory and seems fairly intrusive to many people-most of whom are hearing the questions for the first time.

If you are concerned, it is understandable in light of the current administration’s deceptions, manipulations, excessive pressure, contrived sense of urgency, usurpations of power, monumental intrusiveness, radical agenda, and trampling of our constitutional rights.  However, this may not be the ‘big deal’ some are making it out to be.)

Here is the viewpoint of someone who objects to the basic census questions, based on the principal that they are unconstitutional:  ‘Census Is For Counting Not Prying’ by Chuck Baldwin.  A case could definitely be made that we should not give the government ‘one inch’ more than the Constitution allows.
