America’s Trojan Horse


Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Is asking the hard questions of the DHS secretary Janet Napolitano, and he might as well had asked Eric Holder for “Fast and Furious” documents. In our constitutional republic, the main purpose of government is to protect the God-given rights of the citizens it represents. The goal, it seems of Rep. Gohmert was a noble one, to get to the heart of an issue that should concern all Americans across all party lines, did Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano know she gave a visa and a classified security clearance to a known terrorist facilitator and sympathizer, Hani Nour Eldin. Eldin is a member of Egypt’s parliament and a member of Egypt’s Gamaa Islamiya group which is listed as a known terrorist organization. Eldin attended multiple meetings last month at the behest of the president and DHS, some of which were conducted at the White House. Issue number two, did Napolitano know that the DHS advisory council member (appointed by Obama), Mohamed Elibiary, used his security clearance (that Napolitano gave him) to access and download classified documents with his personal computer and shop the information to media outlets?

Napolitano couldn’t really answer any of Gohmert’s questions other than telling him that it was “objectionable” to attack or accuse someone because they are Muslim, (classic liberal response, Gohmert asks hard questions and he is deemed “bigoted” or “racist”) Rep. Gohmert also asked Napolitano if she was aware of the fact that Elibiary was affiliated with a charity here in the states named the Freedom and Justice Foundation. This is important because the name of the now defunct foundation here in America also shared its name with the Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt. The Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt is the legislative arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The administration has been very open to advice from the “Council on American Islāmic Relations” aka (CAIR) which have been named an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation court case that took place in northern Texas. You will remember, that this is the court case that named all the people responsible for using the giving nature of Americans to secretly fund terrorist activities all around the globe.

If the stonewall tactic looks familiar to you, it should, it worked for Eric Holder at the Fast and Furious hearings. If congress keeps pushing this issue (and it should) I foresee Obama pulling rank and invoking executive privilege once again. As a nation we are in a very precarious era. When agencies have absolutely no congressional oversight, we become a dictatorship or a monarchy by definition. The current administration that promised to be the most transparent, is anything but. It seems Obama “leads” better by fiat rather than inside of a constitutional construct.

As a nation we need to show courage and begin a debate about what role Islam is going to play in our government. Will we cower when liberals attack and call us “bigoted” for asking relevent and important questions? We can not. We must stand courageous in the face of name calling. When we have come to a place in our society where the secretary of DHS is not concerned about men using their personal computers to access classified government information, and known terrorist sympathizers holding meetings in the White House, we are in grave danger. If Janet Napolitano is not going to perform her job as secretary of DHS, why do we have a DHS? We should not cower from the debate simply because it’s politically incorrect to broach these subjects or because of a political agenda. We have already done that, in 1999 when Osama Bin Laden stated that blood would run in the streets of New York city, no one stood against his statement. We also done the same with the Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, over and over people in the know were reporting to the FBI that he was very anti-American and a possible threat, the FBI did not investigate because they were fearful the investigation would be seen as an “Islāmic witch hunt”. All because of political correctness, thirteen people were shot in cold blood. The man had S.O.A. on his government (Army) business card, S.O.A. meaning Soldier Of Allah. To add insult to injury the government will still not call the acts perpetrated by Hasan a terrorist act, they consider it an incident of “work place violence”. Also, I don’t remember anyone mentioning gun control after Hasan killed thirteen.

We recently seen how political agenda has driven the gun control debate after the tragic shooting spree in Aurora, Colorado. Before the victims were all properly identified news anchors were already blaming those they disagree with politically, pushing accusations on Tea Party members. Guns needed to be outlawed so people would be “safe”. Just a day later, an Afghan police officer opened fire on American contractors killing three. No where did you hear anyone calling for the outlaw of guns in Afghanistan. One shooting spree fits the liberal agenda narrative, and one did not. So one gets the nod for a refreshed attack on the second amendment rights of American people, and one is ignored, because only one story is politically expedient. I bring this up because I want the American people to drive the debate regarding Islam in the government, and not another terrorist attack, God forbid.

Obama’s Sycophant, Paul Krugman


sycophant

(sic-o-fant) (NOUN)

A sycophant is a person who tries to gain attention by flattering wealthy or influential people.

A self-serving flatterer, a person who fawns over another.

An example of a sycophant is someone who agrees with everything his boss says and who brings his boss gifts once a month.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Paul Krugman, must have received his Nobel Prize the same way Obama did, by doing absolutely nothing of merit. I understand politics and political motivations, however, Krugmans latest statement is a little more over the top than usual. (Trying to cover Obama’s Tail on Solyndra and the like). The reason our nation is hurtling toward DEBT-MAGEDDON is Obama subscribes to this keynesian economic model that Krugman and so many other leftists follow. Simply put, keynesian economics calls for massive amounts of spending to jumpstart faltering job markets and the overall market. The theory is, if the economy slows down (recession = two or more quarters of negative growth in GDP) you spend more money to drive the economy back up, making the pie larger in a sense. The problem in the theory, among many, is in alignment with the words of Margaret Thatcher, she said, “the only problem with socialism is, eventually you run out of other people’s money”. We have not a dime to spend to bolster or boost our economy, in fact as I have written about many times in the past with unfunded liabilities and the national debt combined we are -70 to -100 Trillion dollars in debt. Our nations economic issues are due to people like Krugman speaking glowingly regarding this ideology. Krugman comes out and says “this is ridiculous, we’re talking like a billion dollars is a lot of money or something.” YES Paul! A billion dollars is still a lot of money! I can deny gravity all day long, but, if I deny it under the wrong circumstances, gravity will kill me. It’s like they live in an alternate universe where sound fiscal policy doesn’t even exist. We are well past the point of no return im afraid, concerning our debt problem. I would liken their spending to that of drunken sailors, but I don’t want to offend the sailors.  Our great great great grand children will still be paying on this millstone around our neck, if we are still a nation when their alive. No nation in the history of the world has ran up debt like we have and survived to tell about it. Europe is ready to shake apart and kill the Euro Zone and the currency. Almost every developed nation on the planet is running massive debts. There are a lot of markets already hinting that a sharp decline is in the near future. And the economic terrorist himself, George Soros, has now signaled that the Euro has 3 months tops before it collapses. Think of the ramifications of that for a moment.

Paul Krugman, history will judge you as an ignorant wretch who professed himself to be wise, while all along you were singing the propagandist song for Obama while he fiddled as America burned. May history forget that you were ever called my countryman.

‘Adolph Hitler’ Ordered to be Held In Custody In New Jersey


One day, you take your family to the grocery store to order a decorated birthday cake for your youngest son.  There’s just one problem, they refuse to decorate the cake for you.  Not because you don’t have the money for it.  Not because they ran out of icing or cake.  But, because they refuse to write your son’s name on the cake, his name, Adolph Hitler Campbell. After the story of this incident broke in the local news papers, child protective services showed up on the doorstep of the Campbell’s, ultimately, child services took all four of their children into custody. Three of their four children are named after Nazi figures or terminology. This happened in New Jersey in 2009.

Fast forward to present day. There was a hearing in Superior Court to decide if the children should be held in State custody or be returned to their parents. Superior Court Judge Robert Reed ruled that the children should continue to be detained in the states care. A decision Adolph’s father strongly disagreed with saying  it was based purely on the names of his children rather than the couple’s ability to serve as parents.

“These kids weren’t abused. Our kids weren’t taken because of abuse,” Campbell said. “I’m honest about who I am and what I am.” He further added “If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I’ll do it,” he said. The children are “more my heart and soul and everything than anything.”

The Campbell’s are reported to have separated. An interesting interconnected note is that the Nazi Party recently filed the paper work in Washington D.C. to have their own lobbyist to the Congress of the United States in April, 2012, and were permitted to do so.

Here is one thing to consider. In America we have a constitutional right to the freedom of association, no matter what the social astigmatism is. We are protected from persecution by the government for being associated with any political ideology. If someone wants to follow communist ideology, in America they are free to do so, even though I strongly disagree with their decision in that choice, I support their right to subscribe to communism. Because I support the U.S. Constitution. We have a right to free and open debate.

I do not like anything that promotes Nazism, I find their actions both past and present, to be detestable. However, I don’t support an over reaching all-powerful government bureaucracy whether Federal, State, or Local in nature.

Here is another point of view to ponder.

Muhammad is a very popular name in the world right now, and many young boys are being named Muhammad currently.

In AD 627, Muhammad committed an atrocity against the last remaining major tribe of Jews in Medina: the Qurayza. Muhammad beheaded or had beheaded 750 Jews, adults and prepubescent males, and gathered all the women together as slaves. Muhammad, also had taken to himself a wife, a young girl of the age of around 9. He was middle-aged at the time of their wedding. The Hadith chronicles the story of Muhammad marrying the 9 year old girl of his friend,the girl was named Aisha. The Southern Baptists had gotten into some hot water over referring to Muhammad as a “Demon Possessed Pedophile” in 2002.

If Muhammad hated the Jews, and killed them. And Adolph hated the Jews, and killed them. Why is it more politically correct to name children Muhammad than Adolph. Is it in our psyche as a nation to abhor the name Adolph, because his atrocities were more recent, and closer to the surface of our knowledge than that of Muhammad’s atrocities? I would say that is part of it. However, consider this point of view, or are we so afraid of being politically incorrect to tell the truth about both men, because Islam calls one of them a prophet? Are we to afraid to criticise one because he is a so-called “religious” figure? And, equally, are we so easy to criticise the other one because its socially acceptable to do so?

In America, does the government have the right to take children into custody, because of their name? Where no credible evidence of abuse can be determined beyond a reasonable doubt? Can they break up a family because of your decision to name your children what you seen fit?  Should the authorities be investigating Islamic families that are naming their boys Muhammad?  If the answer is yes, we are in a world of hurt.

TSA – Decides to Stop Groping Granny


Read; then let this seer into your mind for a while.

The year was 1692, the place was Salem Village, Massachusetts. At the zenith of the Witch Trials in our country, people were scared to death of their neighbors for fear that they would be accused of being a witch. They were terrified they would be arrested, tried, convicted of being a witch and then subsequently hanged. A great commotion was started by a group of little girls and their accusations against a slave woman named, Tituba. The little girls were exhibiting strange behavior, convulsions and the doctor of the village could see no natural cause for the affliction. The girls of Salem Village, had to be under the spell of a witch or worse yet, witches.

You! You are GUILTY!!!

I have given you a synopsis of the story of the witch trials because something amazing and wonderful happened out of those terrible trials. A shift happened. A shift of the burden of proof needed to convict someone beyond a reasonable doubt. History tells us, that when accused of a crime, the law said that the burden of proof was on the accused. However, at the end of the witch trials this was transferred to the prosecution. This is to say that at one point, if accused, you would have to prove that you were innocent of the indictment, that was your burden. After the trials, if you were accused of a crime, those who indicted you, had to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were guilty of the charges. Now it was their burden. No more were you presumed guilty until you proved your innocence, you were presumed innocent until the State proved you were guilty. This premise is what our system is built on, it impacts the writ of habeas corpus and the right to a fair and speedy trial.

Now ask yourself, are you guilty, or is there probable cause to search you for entering a certain area in an airport? Who has the right to search your ‘person’ for merely being in an area of a building. What’s even worse, you are not only searched, now you are “seen” naked through the airport scanners or felt up by some TSA pervert. You might think that is rough but I was raised being told that no one had the right to touch my body, unless I give it to them. The government, using the TSA, Homeland Security, and the Patriot act has turned 320 years of legal precedent on its ear. They have groped granny, pulled out colostomy bags, humiliated cancer patients, touched children in inappropriate places, imagine if a parent done to their child what the TSA now calls a duty, the parent who touched their child would be jailed for gross sexual imposition of a minor! It is disgusting how we are being treated for merely wanting to take part in the convenience of flying on an airplane from one place to another. All because 19 Saudi Arabian radical Islamists decided to use jet airplanes full of fuel as weapons against our countrymen. So now we endure the death of the 4th amendment, as we “disrobe” through the airport scanner, take our shoes and belts off, carry “approved fluids” in “approved bottles” using “approved methods”. It is MADNESS!

We should all wear it as a badge of honor! We will NOT comply!

The good news is we are slowly rolling back their power by our protest and righteous indignation. The spokesperson for the TSA, David Castelveter, has recently released news that the TSA has rethought their stance on strip searching granny and grandpappy, they’re going to relax restrictions on all air travelers over the age of 75. Any one want to join me in a sarcastic “thank you, TSA!?”. Imagine, the government telling you, we’re going to “slow up” on trampling your Constitutional rights. People everywhere should be outraged! They’re going to stop doing something that they should have never done in the first place, no more groping granny! Well it’s about time pervs!

Now how about keeping your hands off the rest of us!

Tea Party; More Dangerous than the Media Thought


**Story Update**

Dateline Texas: Tea party Republican Ted Cruz forces an election runoff between he and Dewhurst.

**Story Update**

Deb Fischer (R) candidate for US Senate wins over the establishment Republican in Nebraska!!
Another conservative win!

When an awkwardly tall and lanky man who was born in Kentucky and now lived in Illinois, attempted to run for public office for the first time, I bet no one gave him a lot of attention or even a second thought. I certainly bet no one thought that one day he would rise to the highest office in the land and that he would be an agent of change, for the betterment of our Union. The man of course, was Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President. The Republican party started as a smaller, grass-roots, third-party, as an anti-slavery party in 1854. This is where we are in our political climate. We are witnessing a revival of common sense politics in our nation, all I can say is, it’s about time!

When the Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already) emerged on the scene, a lot of media types discounted them as right-wing crazies, it was largely dismissed as a bunch of angry white people, who were only protesting spending because president Obama was black. That’s right, the media automatically pulled the race card from the deck of tricks they have. They completely ignored the massive, unsustainable Federal spending that had swept in with Obama’s presidency. Then the media tried its very level best to paint the tea party as dangerous, home-grown terroristic, Timothy McVeigh types, who were seditious and anti-American. This only steeled over the resolve of the people who considered themselves part of the tea party movement, imagine, being called a sexual name and innuendo by the President of the United States because he disagreed with you and sound fiscal policy. Imagine being marginalized for something that our grandparents thought was normal, you don’t spend more than you have or make. Were giving away our national sovereignty by running deficits we can’t pay.

When the media raged at the Tea Party for being dangerous to the nation, what they really meant was, the Tea Party was dangerous to liberal progressives, and tax, spend, borrow, and tax again policies. However, a funny thing happened on the way to Washington D.C., the Tea Party hung up their Americana costumes and picked up their clip boards, telephones, and started organizing into an actual political action group and teaming up with other pro-freedom, low tax organizations such as FreedomWorks.org. As the Tea Party is gaining steam, the liberal media has had a sharp drop in following and tv ratings. You can really tell when the media is scared to death, they begin searching for stories they can spin into their self-serving narratives. I recently read a story on the Daily Caller that was titled “Tea party petering out in South Carolina?” Its premise was so obvious, try to beat up the Tea Party before some extremely important primary elections in Wisconsin, with Scott Walker (R), In Indiana, With Dick Lugar (R), and Richard Mourdock (R), and out in Utah with Orrin Hatch (R). Now, with Lugar voted out in his primary by 20 points, and Scott Walker (R) voted to stay in office, the media is beside itself. (By the way, Scott Walker didn’t need a single vote to win today, he was unopposed, but he received roughly 70,000 votes more than the two Democrats running against him combined. Wisconsin had a huge conservative voter turn out.) North Carolina passed amendment one, defining marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman and this also would be the only recognized marriage in NC. Now all eyes are on the primary in Utah, to see if Orrin Hatch can win his primary, he is challenged by Tea Party favorite, former Utah State Senator Dan Liljenquist. Needless to say, after todays conservative landslide, Obama’s really got to be wondering what his next political steps are. (A year ago the media said these things were impossible.) The so-called “war on women” he tried to spin as being a Republican problem, has back fired on him. Today he flip-flopped on the Gay marriage issue, his campaign is stinking of desperation. He was for it in ’96, then against it in ’08 and now he’s for it in ’12.

When your political opponents are grasping at straws, you know, that they know, they are in big trouble! Liberals are in a frenzy now, they are watching their religion, “Liberalism” take it on the chin, hard! One can only hope that the media keeps discounting the Tea Party and that the Occupy movement keeps crapping on cop cars and door steps. While their wasting their time begging for lattes’ and for electricity to charge their ipads, conservatives are sweeping into public office, and getting ready to turn this ship around.

Obama admits he is Muslim: What a Man Believes, Shapes His Worldview


Matthew 7:20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

**Story Update**

Rev. Jeremiah Wright admits, “I made it easy for Obama to accept Christianity, without having to renounce Islam.”

Let me begin by saying, I know the US Constitution bars a religious litmus test for all those who would seek to hold public office, and I am in agreement with it. The above video should not be viewed in a Constitutional context. It should however be viewed and reviewed in a context of how a man’s words either shed light, or darkness on his character. In this highly charged, political, election year climate, you will hear a ton more on the faith (Mormonism) of the Republican (almost) nominee, Mitt Romney by the main stream media. In contrast, you will see the media elite try to deflect for Obama, any question that remotely challenges him, his policies, and his faith. Mr. Obama has stated on numerous occasions that he is a Christian, and Jerimiah Wright had led him to Christ, married he and his wife Michelle, and also baptized his daughters Sasha and Malia. (Although Jerimiah preaches black liberation theology). Either Obama is a Christian, or he is a Muslim, there is no middle ground. He can’t have it both ways. Although if you study his actions he tries his absolute best to play the politically correct answers all the time.

Mr. Obama, is the closest our nation has ever come to being ruled by a foreign dictator, thats not hyperbole, many would agree with that statement. So, why does it feel this way?

Because what a man believes, forms all his policies, forms his world view, and forms his moral foundation. After watching the video, ponder the verse of Scripture under it, and ask yourself, what are Barack Obama’s fruits? I would list all the pro-muslim actions he’s taken, but the video does an excellent job outlining them. Something else to remember while watching the video, in Islam, it is perfectly okay to lie about anything, as long as you are ultimately promoting the Muslim faith. And yes, this video has been out for a while, however it never hurts to do a refresher every now and again. Because Sharia Law is not freedom compliant!

Governments; and the Individual


Can an Individual; act as governments do; and still prosper?

Financial (basic) – As an individual, say you were to venture out for a day to buy some items. Lets just say for the ease of discussions sake, you start with a $100.00, you find a “widget” that you would like to buy. This particular widget is $140.00. So you take $100.00 that you have and print $20.00 and borrow $20.00 (from a person who may be your enemy [China]) to make up the difference. You buy the widget, now you own it. What no one knows is you will have to print the other $20.00 at some point to pay back the loan you borrowed. So essentially you printed $40.00. And still yet, what no one else knows is that you have a slight debt and credibility problem, it seems that other purchases that you have made were on credit also, to the total of $104.00, so you’re actually at a debt to income ratio of 105%, but don’t worry, you collect $100.00 annually. Next year, you can print another $20.00 and “borrow” another $20.00 just to stay afloat. But, in the new year, you decide there is some more “maintenance” spending that needs done, so you start with $100.00 you print $35.00 and borrow $35.00. You just magically increased your debt limit. You still are going to have to print $35.00, just to pay the new debt, things are tough, that’s why you only start with $100.00.
So by the third year, you are paying the minimum payments on your debt and running behind on printing money not worth the paper it’s printed on, wait, just ask some neighbors to help out, after all it’s the good-hearted thing to do, you should collect taxes, or duties, levies, just pick a name.

Taxes – You vote in a Progressive levy of 55%, 65%, and 85%, because you feel this amount requires all (when I say “all” I mean those who make an obscene amount) to pay what you consider a “fair share”. So arbitrarily, you begin reaping what others have sown, don’t worry its good for everybody, It’s about the collective. So as your bank account swells, you begin to pay off your debt, NOT, in your financial drunkenness you find three new projects to fund, and by the way, you not only didn’t pay off the entire debt you owed, you borrowed and printed another $300.00, loaned an obscene amount of money to your solar energy friends, after all the revenue is coming in like gangbusters now, and since your creditors will still loan, you might as well get that money now, you can “always pay it off tomorrow”.

Charity – So now that you have built an economic worthless paper money power house, you should find those who are down trodden, and start a war on poverty, after all if you help them, at some point you may be able to call in a favor later (they may be able to keep you in power). So your bank account continues to swell, and you perpetuate a permanent underclass with your redistributed wealth, you give food cards to those without, pay those who won’t work, pay for daycare for those in your country illegally, keep comfortable those who would work, but it’s so tempting not to, especially since the checks just keep coming, pay for therapy, healthcare, funerals, births, psych services, what ever your imagination holds, remember it’s for the greater good.

Personal liberty – Now that you have acquired a certain amount of power, some people, we’ll call them skeptics, have said your policies don’t work, and they’re being critical of your economic plans. They say you’re pulling money from your right pocket to pay your left pocket back. You must squelch that fast, so your only option is to begin passing rules against their complaining, marginalize them, criminalize them, jail them, monitor and shut down their internet communications, tell the media that your skeptics are ignorant, uneducated, out of the loop, crazy, and just plain wrong. you separate them, disparage their good names, wage an all out war on them.

Business – When you want to branch out, this is easy. You find a business in need of capital, it really doesn’t even matter if they need the money or not, all you have to do is sell them the loan package, and when they can’t pay it back, that business needs bailed out, it’s too big to fail. Now, all you have to do is multiply this program and business by as many as you want, remember the money you loaned was worth less, so what did you really pay? Thats a bargain.

As insane as it sounds, this is how Federal, State, and Local governments operate every day! If an individual were to do just 1% of any of the above scenario’s, the Government would lock them up and throw away the key, and we would all cheer that decision on, as we should, but when our Government has grown so out of control, we turn a blind eye. What is the answer to this madness? What the answer has always been. A return to moral’s. A return to Biblical principles, that produce a rock solid family, sound fiscal policy, a strong national defense, sane legislation, a nation of laws and not of men. Our answer is found in the parable of the prodigal son:

Luke 15:11-32

King James Version (KJV)

11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:

12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.

13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.

14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.

15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,

19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.

20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.

26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.

29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

We as a nation, used to be the son who stayed home, saved up for a rainy day, we knew that we were not guaranteed tomorrow, we stayed close to our Heavenly Father and his undeserved blessings and mercy. But along our path as a nation we decided to borrow from our future like the son that spent all his substance on riotous living. [Luke 15:13]. After all that’s what he really did, stole from his future for pleasures of the here and now. (Sound familiar)? Some today say it’s perfectly ok to spend our way out of debt, that is antithetical to sound, Biblical morality (not to mention common sense). Here’s a small economic lesson for liberal progressives, If I have 5 sand dollars, and someone else has 5 sand dollars, And yet still, someone stamps out 500 sand dollars out of sand and volcano ash, and they dump them into the same market as the ten (real) sand dollars, as long as everyone accepts the created currency, my 5 sand dollars just lost roughly 99% of their buying power. When the market is flooded with worthless money, it drives up prices (inflation).  This is what happens to our economy every time the U.S. Government, prints or digitizes our money, we the consumers lose! Don’t let no one tell you, you can separate morality and money, it is not possible.

In Luke 15:14; just one short verse later a crisis hit, how many say we are in an economic crisis right now. Unemployment is dangerously high it (U6 number) is roughly 12-13%  Now mind you this is only one verse after he spent all his substance, notice the Bible says he was broke, he had $0.00. Unlike us as a nation we have -$15,703,694,600,000.00 yes that’s a negative in front 14 digit number. Thats right, the Prodigal son was richer than we are now.

In Luke 15:15 the son became dependant on the foreigner for his substance. Just look how intertwined and interdependent on foreign nations we have become. Other countries have invested in our stocks, money, businesses, just like the Bible says we would be after leaving sound Godly principles. George Washington warned us of becoming to interdependent on foreign nations in his farewell address, and told us to beware of alliances.

In Luke 15:17 the prodigal son has an epiphany, I’m starving! Just look how many hired servants my Father has, if I could just eat the crumbs that fall from their table! If we could just get back to being thankful for Gods bountiful blessings and ask Him to steer us back to even just the place of our feasting on the crumbs from the Fathers table for our country, In Him is every need met!

In verses 18 and 19 you see the sons true and genuine repentance, O’ that God would tarry his judgement just a while longer so we might have a chance to earnestly repent as a nation, in spirit and truth!

In Luke 15:20 we see that the Father must have already forgiven his son, It says as he went to his Father, his Father was looking for him, how long I wonder he’d stared at the horizon looking for his lost son?! The Father RAN to him! God is waiting on our nation today to turn from our sins and iniquities and walk back toward him. (You see the son asking for forgiveness, but you never here the father say I forgive you, he already had in his heart, that’s why he ran to his boy, and kissed his neck)

In Verse 22 the son is restored to his former glory, and lifted back to the status of Son!

I want to close with this: Our nation will be judged of God in the present, here and now. God has promised to judge us by every word we’ve uttered as individuals in the Great White Throne Judgement, but nations are judged in the present for their national sins, and judgement is measured out in the here and now, nations don’t get to spend eternity with God or seperated from God, individuals do.

“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; His justice cannot sleep forever.”

Thomas Jefferson
