A friend forwarded me a link to a gut-wrenching column with the cumbersome title, “I’m The Duke University Freshman Porn Star And For The First Time I’m Telling The Story In My Words.” The article is enough to break your heart for this girl, who is an example of cannon fodder from the hellish “sexual revolution” and “women’s liberation” movements.
The young lady, identified only as Lauren A., describes Duke University (a school whose motto is Eruditio et Religio: Learning and Religion) as her “dream school,” and she states that she has chosen to act in porn movies to finance her education. She tried to keep her identity under cover, so to speak, but one of the young men at the school recognized her on campus and exposed her identity. She was subsequently harassed and bullied online for what she does, so she decided to write a column about it and what she believes it means.
Putting aside the volumes that could be written about the vile poison that pornography is and the devastation of empty souls, ruined sexuality, broken lives and marriages, and even death left in its wake, let’s look at some of what Lauren has to say.
… My experience in porn has been nothing but supportive, exciting, thrilling and empowering.
… I am not ashamed of porn. On the contrary, doing pornography fulfills me.
… For me, shooting pornography brings me unimaginable joy. When I finish a scene, I know that I have done so and completed an honest day’s work. It is my artistic outlet: my love, my happiness, my home.
I can say definitively that I have never felt more empowered or happy doing anything else. In a world where women are so often robbed of their choice, I am completely in control of my sexuality. As a bisexual woman with many sexual quirks, I feel completely accepted. It is freeing, it is empowering, it is wonderful, it is how the world should be.
No, Lauren, it is not how the world should be.
Her words remind me of a sentiment that national radio talk show host Michael Savage has expressed on numerous occasions: You loudly declare how free you are, but I only hear your chains rattling.
Regardless of whether one believes in God or not, without His saving grace through Jesus, we are all subject to, and slaves of, the laws of sin and death. And whether Lauren believes it or not, creating pornography is sin, and it is impossible for sin to free, fulfill or empower us. Sin is never wonderful, and ultimately, it cannot make us happy, not at all. Sin can only lead to all kinds of bad things for our minds, bodies and spirits.
Lauren goes on in her column to reveal her horribly misguided, even delusional, thinking about human sexuality, and she shares some warped views she learned growing up:
My entire life, I have, along with millions of other girls, been told that sex is a degrading and shameful act.
… The most striking view I was indoctrinated with was that sex is something women “have,” but that they shouldn’t “give it away” too soon -– as though there’s only so much sex in any one woman, and sex is something she does for a man that necessarily requires losing something of herself, and so she should be really careful who she “gives” it to.
God did not design sex to be “degrading and shameful.” It is meant to be a sacred expression of love and intimacy between a husband and wife, and it results in the blessing of a family. Fallen, sinful man has grossly perverted what God designed for good. Sex as sin has turned a special act intended for marriage into a monstrous thing, a powerful weapon that rips the vitality from people’s bodies, minds and spirits.
Ultimately, Lauren reaches a conclusion that only makes sense to the mind darkened by delusion:
We must question in this equation why sex workers are so brutally stigmatized. Why do we exclude them for jobs, education, and from mainstream society?
Why do we scorn, threaten and harass them?
Why do we deny them of their personhood?
Why does the thought of a woman having sexual experiences scare us so much?
The answer is simple.
Patriarchy fears female sexuality.
It terrifies us to even fathom that a woman could take ownership of her body. We deem to keep women in a place where they are subjected to male sexuality. We seek to rob them of their choice and of their autonomy. We want to oppress them and keep them dependent on the patriarchy.
… I am well aware: The threat I pose to the patriarchy is enormous. That a woman could be intelligent, educated and CHOOSE to be a sex worker is almost unfathomable.
She is certainly a product of the Godless Left’s indoctrination. Whatever ill consequence of her sexual misconduct, in her mind it’s men’s fault. That she is regarded by society as a whore or prostitute based on her behavior, she believes, is because men “fear” a loose woman. There’s some pretzel logic for you!
What is the truth? The truth is that a woman is meant to be precious to her husband. Yes, her sexuality is meant to be cherished, reserved for her husband, whose sexuality is likewise meant to be reserved for her. While it is equally bad when either men or women abuse God’s gift of sex, the reality is that people regard a loose woman more harshly than a loose man. But, is that because of some nebulous “patriarchy” out there? No. It is because women are special, designed by God as the fairer sex, God’s gift to the man, the gentle touch of beauty and nurturing motherhood, the counterpart to the strong man. Whether it’s “fair” or not, these inherently understood truths have always made women’s sexual sin uglier in the eyes of society.
Lauren is choosing to let herself be robbed of real fulfillment, true happiness and joy, and divinely-inspired empowerment by the degrading of her body. She has chosen a path that will corrupt her soul and ruin her sexuality, but she does not have to settle for the dead-end deal the world has to offer.
The real Patriarch, God the Father—Who loves Lauren more than she could possibly fathom and has provided her a bridge to salvation through Jesus—has a design for her that is unimaginably higher than her self-made prison of sin, the gutter she currently inhabits. I pray that Lauren one day comes to the knowledge of God’s truth and real freedom and real peace, which are only found through Him.
For the raging feminist, the despiser of “patriarchy,” the believer of lies about God and His perfect design for women, I offer the sparkling vision of the Proverbs 31 woman, a woman who truly has it all. The chapter states, in part:
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
… Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

It doesn’t matter what naysayers think. It doesn’t matter what the leftist media declares or how aggressively it tries to suppress the message of it. It doesn’t matter what “establishment” politicians suppose. The fire of impeachment is nevertheless burning hot and spreading fast in the minds and hearts of the American people, the rightful guardians and intended masters of the Republic.
The reality is that we are now in a time that most of us never imagined we would see in the United States of America. We have an utterly lawless president and administration. We have unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in federal agencies who are writing laws without Congress that impose onerous, destructive regulations on our nation’s businesses and citizens.
Despite the dark, higher powers that control him, the head of the snake, for all practical purposes, is Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), who also illegally writes laws as he spits on Congress, the Judiciary and the constitutional limits on his authority. While there have certainly been bad presidents in the past, America has never seen the despotic likes of Obama.
Those of us who have been paying attention understand that in Obama we are witnessing a dangerous criminal in action at the highest level of power, not just in our nation, but in the world, and the seriousness of this matter cannot be overstated. We also understand that those who currently have the authority to stop Obama are clearly unwilling to do so. I have guessed why this may be, and the only logical answer I find is that these people are in great fear of Obama and the forces behind him, or they wickedly agree with him. That’s the only thing that makes sense of the almost complete lack of opposition to anything this man does, no matter how illegal.
It may well be that those who have the power to oppose or stop Obama have good reason to fear. Look at the chilling rash of “suicides” and “accidental” deaths of a host of bankers in less than a month’s time this year. Naturally, we don’t know who is behind these deaths, because I seriously doubt it’s coincidence. But the point is that we live in a world where unfathomably diabolical powers run the show, and they do not hesitate to bury those who may pose a threat to their schemes.
In the United States, we are not quite to the point of communist regimes elsewhere in the past hundred or so years where tyrants brazenly round up or openly murder their political opponents. Here, they still at least bother to make them look like accidents, suicides or natural causes. Imagine if you were someone in a position of authority who could take meaningful action against Obama and his administration. You must know that just the threat of an unfortunate, untimely death of you or a dear family member would have a highly potent effect on your actions, likely turning them into non-actions. How many of us could or would stand firmly in the face of such terror?
So, what can be done about the powerful enemies of America who currently inhabit the White House and administration? There is a single constitutional remedy for a tyrannical Commander-in-Chief and his accessories in crime: impeachment and removal from office.
To this end, the Conservative Majority PAC has launched a campaign to impeach Barack Obama. I am a small part of that campaign, which aims to gather signatures and support from the millions of Americans who understand the terrible, inevitable consequences for our nation if Obama is allowed to remain in office. From the Pledge to Impeach website:
The Constitution of the United States provides only one way to stop a despotic president—IMPEACHMENT:
The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. (Article 2, Section 4)
It is therefore our duty as a people, while we still can, to expose treasonous, criminal behavior by those in high office through impeachment, and to demand that our representatives follow through and convict.
Impeachment is America’s last remaining hope of blocking the dictatorial reign of the imposter and usurper in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama. And the window for doing so is closing fast upon us. The longer we wait, the more the man will continue to dismantle our constitutional republic, our national security, our electoral system, our economic strength, our rights and liberties—and we may be left to see the foolishness of our inaction from the hindsight of harsh reality.
We will wish then that we had acted when it was timely to do so.
In this effort, we are looking to the 2014 midterm elections and working to elect people to Congress who are staunchly unafraid to do the right thing by our country, to take their oaths of office seriously and boldly work to impeach and remove Obama and his partners in crime.
We ask that you sign the Pledge to Impeach and that you spread it far and wide to all your like-minded friends and family. Post it on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media outlet you may use. Also, push congressional candidates to sign the Candidate Pledge to Impeach, and work to help them win their primaries.
Ultimately, the only One who can stop the evil power behind the Obama administration is God. We must also petition Him in prayer to have mercy on this wayward nation and give the movement to impeach Obama the power to succeed, because He is the only One Who can. We must continue to pray for our nation, to pray that these criminal leaders will be brought to justice through the constitutional channels our Founding Fathers put in place.
Concerning this impeachment effort, Ambassador Dr. Alan Keyes, the Chairman of the Conservative Majority PAC, wrote a message that states, in part:
With a nation outraged and the sleeping giant of the decent American people finally being roused from passive, even indulgent hibernation, there is no better time to elect true, Ronald Reagan conservatives.
•We CAN REPLACE, with true conservatives, many socialists in Congress who have failed our nation.
•We CAN REPEAL the odious and unconstitutional Obamacare legislation.
•We CAN RESTORE the American Republic.
But we can only do it together. And we must act swiftly and decisively. With the hand of the Almighty upon us, we can and will elect the next generation of principled leadership in Washington!
May God Bless America! Keep Faith!
Finally, while we are enduring a heartbreaking, distressing time in our nation, let us not lose hope or grow weary in our work to defend America from her enemies within and preserve her as founded. The road ahead is not easy, and our worldly enemies are deeply entrenched in our government and major institutions, but with unity of mind and purpose, unflagging determination, and most importantly, the Lord’s help, we may yet see our nation restored to the most free and prosperous country the world has ever known.
The following was written by Gina Miller.
On Monday, I stumbled across a column published last month at Investors.com claiming that Attorney General Eric Holder intends to ban consideration of “religion” in terror investigations. By “religion,” we understand he means Islam. Let’s take a look at part of the story:
According to NBC News, the Justice Department will soon prohibit religious profiling in terror cases. The move, if true, would completely blind federal law enforcement to the threat from Islamic extremism.
Already, the department has forced the FBI to bleach references to “Islam” and “jihad” from its counterterrorism training materials. It’s also made it harder for agents to infiltrate radical mosques.
But Attorney General Eric Holder reportedly now wants to make it illegal for agents to even consider religion in their investigations.
Democrats on the Hill are cheering the changes, along with the ACLU and radical Muslim Brotherhood front groups, who have all lobbied the administration for them. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has seen several of its officials jailed on terror-related charges, calls it “a step in the right direction.”
There was no author listed for the column, and no link to any NBC news story or other original source was provided. So, I began to scour the Internet looking for corroboration of the report. Other than numerous websites that re-posted the same column verbatim, I just found one Bloomberg story that was short on specifics, other than to say:
The Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder has been reviewing the guidelines for federal investigations for several years, according to the official, and is planning to expand the definition to prohibit profiling based on religion, national origin, sexual orientation and gender.
… While the scope of the changes that will be proposed by Holder wasn’t immediately available and the timing of any announcement unclear, the possible changes were discussed in a meeting yesterday between Holder and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio at City Hall, the official said.
Whatever the details of this story may be, this is something we would easily expect from this lawless “Justice” Department working in concert with Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and his deep love for all things Islam (and “sexual orientation”-related, of course). We have watched in horror as Obama and his administration have repeatedly bowed to Muslim Brotherhood interests. We have seen reports of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the administration, the State Department, Homeland Security and other departments. This Islamic infiltration did not start under Obama’s reign, but it has certainly reached warp speed since he was installed in our presidency. We also learned last week of yet another extra-congressional Obama dictate, allowing people with terror ties to seek asylum in the United States. Brilliant move, Sparky!
Bob Unruh, writing at WorldNetDaily, reported last month on the existence of Muslim Brotherhood operatives inside the Obama administration. In his column, he cites Claire Lopez, an expert on Islamic supremacism, from her excellent Gatestone Institute report, “History of the Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the U.S. Government.” In the conclusion of her paper, Ms. Lopez writes:
As we can see, as early as the George W. Bush administration period, the Muslim Brotherhood already had achieved an information dominance that, in coming years, would only intensify. Not only did figures associated and identified with the Muslim Brotherhood achieve broad penetration at senior levels of U.S. policymaking, but voices that warned of their true agenda (such as Stephen Coughlin’s) were actively excluded. That information dominance has contributed to startling consequences, most evident in the U.S. policy towards the al-Qa’eda and Muslim Brotherhood-dominated revolutions that many call the “Arab Spring,” but which in fact are more accurately termed an “Islamic Awakening.” Under the Muslim Brotherhood-influenced Obama administration, U.S. policy has undergone such a drastic shift in the direction of outright support for these jihadist movements — from al-Qa’eda militias in Libya, to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and both al-Qa’eda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked rebels in Syria — that it is scarcely recognizable as American any more. The infiltration of individuals such as Magid, Hussain, and Abedin, to name just a few, with such close Muslim Brotherhood identifications, to positions of influence at the highest levels of U.S. policymaking must be considered, at a minimum, a contributing factor.
In June 2012, five courageous U.S. Congressional representatives (Michele Bachmann, Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Tom Rooney, and Lynn Westmoreland) sent letters to the Inspectors General of the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, and State as well as the Office of the Director of National Security, requesting an investigation of Muslim Brotherhood influence within those agencies. That their patriotic initiative in defense of the security of U.S. policymaking should have been met only with an overwhelming barrage of criticism is tragic testament to the extent of success the Muslim Brotherhood has achieved in suppressing even the duty to counterintelligence awareness that is the first defense of a free people. Given the long history of Muslim Brotherhood activity in this country, its declared objective to “destroy the Western civilization from within,” and the extensive evidence of successful influence operations at the highest levels of the U.S. government, it is urgent that we recognize this clear and present danger that threatens not only our Republic but the values of Western civilization.
To anyone willing to see, it is clear that the Islamists are self-sworn enemies of the United States. Therefore, Obama’s behavior in allowing these people into high levels of our government and supporting their terror groups around the world is adhering to, and giving aid and comfort to our enemies, which is treason. Obama and his administration are enemies ofAmerica.
The Investors.com report on Eric Holder moving to strip consideration if Islam from terror investigations, if true, is yet another in the myriad examples of what you get when enemies within take over your government. This administration is a vile cancer in the body of our nation, and if it’s not somehow stopped, it may be fatal to the United States of America.

We have repeatedly warned you that the radical homosexual movement’s goal is nothing less than the obliteration of the rights of those who oppose it. Homosexual activists parrot their lying talking points, constantly denying that this is the case. I can’t tell you how many countless times these people have screeched and wailed at me in comments sections of my columns that homosexual “rights” will never affect Christians or any others who oppose them. This is a damnable lie. Homosexual “rights” and the free exercise of religion cannot coexist. They are mutually exclusive, and one must give way to the other.
We have yet another proof of this in Massachusetts, a state in which the militant homosexual movement is on a vicious, seemingly inexorable march. On Friday, MassResistance reported on the story of a homosexual activist going through legal channels to force a Catholic school to hire him, despite the fact that he is “married” to another man.
From the MassResistance report:
Back in July, Matthew Barrett of Dorchester applied for a job as the food service director at Fontbonne Academy, a Roman Catholic girls’ high school in Milton, Mass., and was subsequently offered the job. When he filled out a pre-employment form listing his “husband” as an emergency contact the school told him that “the Catholic religion doesn’t recognize same-sex marriage. We cannot hire you.”
Barrett claimed to be shocked by the school’s action. But it appears that he was purposefully dishonest. He told the Boston Globe that he was raised a Catholic and that he was informed by school officials during the interview process that employees are expected to follow Catholic doctrine. However, he did not tell the school that he was openly involved with homosexual behavior and was in a “gay marriage.” Those, of course, are serious violations of Catholic teaching.
We have seen this over and over: homosexual activists targeting Christian and Catholic businesses and organizations for the sole purpose of bringing legal action against the leaders when they predictably refuse to acquiesce to the homosexuals’ demands. And, of course, the homosexuals lie about their agenda and intentions, just as this man apparently did.
Having told the Boston Globe that he was raised Catholic, he knows darned well what Catholicism teaches about homosexuality. He also admitted that the school advised him that he must adhere to Catholic doctrine, which he claims he thought meant only “participating in prayers.” Yeah, sure. It’s a stretch to believe he was not lying when he says he was “surprised” that the job offer was withdrawn. It is much easier to see this as a clear-cut case of homosexual activism targeting the business practices of a private Catholic school.
As usual, the people who are representing Barrett, Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), are using the anti-discrimination laws of Massachusetts to make their claims against this school. The state includes “sexual orientation” in its list of specially protected people. Anti-discrimination laws based on “sexual orientation” are part of the homosexual movement’s camel’s nose under the tent in going after Christian and other religious organizations to force them to bow at the altar of homosexuality. In this case, Barrett’s defenders claim that because this potential job was not religious in nature, then freedom of religion is not an issue. Bunk! The entire organization is based on the Catholic beliefs of the people who own it, and they have every right to conduct their business in accordance with their beliefs.
We must not underestimate the determination of these people to force their will on the United States. Their serial lies claiming that their “rights” (which are a fallacy, since they possess the same rights as other Americans) will not interfere with the rights of others could not be further from the truth. Christians, Catholics and others who hold right moral objections to the mainstreaming of homosexuality will not be able to live their lives or run their businesses in line with the knowledge that homosexuality is a sinful, dangerous behavior.
None of us will be safe from the devilish goals of the radical homosexual agenda if it’s not stopped. Our kids are not safe from pro-homosexual indoctrination in the public schools, not to mention the media and “entertainment” industry. Our preachers and pastors will ultimately not be safe even inside their churches. Countries like Canada,Sweden, those in the UK and others already have prohibitions against “hate speech” which have been used to persecute and prosecute preachers who present the Biblical truth about the sin of homosexuality in their churches. Do not imagine that the homosexual radicals will stop until they get all opposition to homosexual behavior outlawed here in America.
I understand that the strongly pro-homosexual climate that has been cultivated by leftists in the Obama administration, the media, Hollywood, colleges and other major institutions can intimidate people, making them afraid to express forceful, meaningful opposition to this freedom-robbing movement. But, we must be vigilant in speaking against it and working on our elected officials to beat back pro-homosexual, anti-marriage legislation. Nothing less than our fundamental freedoms are at stake if we fail to resist this dark movement.
Finally, from the MassResistance report:
We don’t think that GLAD would publicize this case so dramatically if they didn’t think they could win it. They certainly have huge ties to the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. In addition, we expect that GLAD will put the full force of its legal team, and possibly even recruit free help from lawyers from gay-friendly downtown Boston firms to ultimately force Fontbonne Academy to hire Matt Barrett.
The homosexual movement knows that if it is successful in this case, it will set a precedent for Massachusetts and send a strong message to every other conservative religious institution in the state. But worse, it will surely become a template for similar action across the country in states where “gay marriage” exists, despite “religious freedom” clauses that may exist in their laws.
Our side must fight back hard!
This needs to be taken seriously by our side and fought hard! It is madness, and should not have any legal leg to stand on. But as we’ve said over and over in the past, much of the mess we’re in now is the result of mushy, fear-based legal defenses by pro-family lawyers in important cases. We are praying that Fontbonne gets the necessary kind of legal firepower to stop this.
As states across the country are confronting the issue of “gay marriage” being forced on them by activist judges and corrupt politicians, many “conservatives” have been backing off and saying that this won’t affect them. This shows that they’d better think again.
And to those pro-family people who simply say that the “gay marriage” fight is about “every child needs a father and a mother” or “we’re not against anyone; we’re just pro-marriage” or similar politically-correct platitudes—you need to come out of your fantasy world.
We will keep an eye on this case. Stay tuned.
The following was written by Gina Miller.
We didn’t have to wait till 2016 to see Obama’s ugly America unfold. Not many of us would have ever dreamed that the United States could fall to the communists. And, it still remains to be seen if we will be able to beat them back. It doesn’t look good at this point, because there is a group of people in power in Washington, and in many of our major institutions, that is aggressively working to tear down America’s foundations of freedom and Godly heritage, and it has the unopposed “power of the sword” to do it. The people in this group are truly enemies of God and the United States.
Therefore, although it was sickening, it was no surprise to see Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) sic his lawless Justice Department on Dinesh D’Souza, creator of the hugely popular documentary film 2016: Obama’s America. It is clear that Obama didn’t like this picture at all. Naturally he wouldn’t, because people who aim to destroy a nation’s freedom—and who have the power to do it—don’t like the truth to be told about them. So, Mr. D’Souza is being targeted for felony campaign finance violations. What he did or didn’t do is not the point. The point is that he crossed the tyrant in the White House by telling the truth about him. That is his real “crime.”
We have already seen plenty of this kind of Soviet-style targeting of those who tell the truth about Obama and his fellow-traveling commie buddies in power. Obama criminally uses the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to harass and intimidate his political opponents to the point that their efforts to expose his vile agenda are thwarted in the public arena. He uses the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Justice Department to spy on Americans and journalists. These things are un-American, but unless he is stopped, this is now Obama’s America, a growing throwback to the old Soviet Union. Just about all that’s missing is the large-scale roundup and murder of his political enemies and mass starvation.
So what is the solution? How can we get rid of the lawless tyrant in the White House and his henchmen in the administration, Congress and federal bureaucracies? There is talk of impeachment and removal from office of Obama and members of his criminal syndicate administration, which is an excellent, although scary, prospect. There is also a growing movement, spurred by Mark Levin’s book The Liberty Amendments, to push for an Article V convention of the states to propose amendments to the Constitution. This is a very bad idea for a number of compelling reasons. Before you give me a knee-jerk negative reaction to that statement, please consider that retired litigation attorney and constitutional scholar, Publius Huldah, has laid out those compelling reasons in her outstanding papers, including, “Propaganda and the Conspiracy Against Our Constitution,” a must-read piece. Ms. Huldah points out that the only remedy actually prescribed by our Founders to rein in a lawless federal government is nullification, which is NOT secession, as some lying detractors claim.
While there may be remedies for defeating or curbing the power of the dictators running our nation, the remedies do not address the root cause of why we stand today on the brink of a communist United States of America. Only those of us who know the Lord understand that what ails America is a disease of the soul, brought about by many decades of rebellion against God Almighty. Our nation has collectively embraced all kinds of darkness that we never did before. The mass murder of pre-born babies, the celebration of sodomy and sexual license of every kind, a proliferation of Godlessness (sin) that has chilled the love in peoples’ hearts and replaced it with hatred for one another—these things and more are symptoms of the spiritual rot in America that, at its core, is simply rebellion against God.
If we are to have any hope of restoring our nation as founded, with its unparalled freedom and opportunity for all, we must work to reclaim our nation for God, and this has to start with each of us doing spiritual house cleaning in his own life (me, most of all). None of us will be perfect in this life, and many of us stumble daily, but our stumbling does not need to keep us from seeking the Lord’s face, working to do His will and petitioning His mercy on this undeserving nation.
As Christians, we know that the battle in which we are engaged is a spiritual one that manifests itself in the physical world. Yes, we have earthly political and ideological enemies, but the forces behind them are spiritual. We battle the demonic forces of darkness that inhabit the high places of power in our nation and world, and they cannot be defeated by purely physical tactics. Without God, we are powerless against Hell’s tyranny and have no chance of stopping the evil plan for Obama’sAmerica.
Our most potent weapon in this world is prayer, when welded together with wearing the whole armor of God, as outlined in Ephesians 6:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints…
Couple this with God’s promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14, and we have the beginning of a recipe for victory over the Godless usurpers ruling our nation:
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

When we read about a Russian television star saying he believes homosexuals should be burned alive in ovens and stripped of their right to vote (before or after the ovens?), then right off the bat, we know we’re dealing with a hard-core publicity hound or a lunatic, maybe both. Naturally, no one, other than fellow lunatics, would agree with him. That’s not a hard position to take.
Conservative radio talk show host, Glenn Beck, weighed in on the story in an appearance on CNN. He had apparently mentioned the story on his radio show, but I only found out about his statements in the CNN interview via a Newsmax story from last Thursday.
From the Newsmax report:
Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck says he would stand with LGBT advocacy group GLAAD in the fight against Russia’s anti-gay laws.
… “Do you know what happened last week in Russia?” he asked. “One of their biggest stars on television said that homosexuals should be put into the ovens alive. I didn’t think you could make the Holocaust worse but he’s like, ‘Why the gas chamber? That seems a little too humane. ‘Let’s put them alive in the ovens.’”
He continued, “I said on the air this week, I will stand with GLAAD. I will stand with anybody who will stand up and say that’s crazy. That’s dangerous. That’s hetero-fascism. That’s what that is. And we’re talking about Duck Dynasty. Really? Really?”
First, let’s take a quick look at Russia’s new anti-homosexual law. It is simply a law banning “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” aimed at children under 18 years old. Russia can see what is happening in the United States with the destructive, militant homosexual recruitment campaign that infiltrates our media, entertainment, government and public schools and targets the impressionable minds of children who are too young to be dealing with such issues. Russia wants to protect its kids from this immoral, unnatural and unhealthy influence.
From the CNN video clip, I don’t hear Glenn Beck mention Russia’s anti-homosexual propaganda law, but I do hear him say, “I will stand with GLAAD.” He will stand with GLAAD against belligerents who insanely call for the murder of homosexuals, but does Glenn know what GLAAD is, what it represents?
GLAAD, a misnomer acronym that stands for “Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation,” is a highly political, leftist, “non-profit,” tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization whose motto is, “Leading the conversation. Shaping the media narrative. Changing the culture. That’s GLAAD at work.” GLAAD is at the forefront in pushing the radical homosexual agenda in our nation, and GLAAD is vehemently anti-Christian.
While I do not agree with Glenn Beck’s theology, I know he is sympathetic to Christianity. And, in the video clip of him making his statements against the Russian actor, he also drives home the point that he does not want to shut anyone down in their freedom of speech. In part, he said:
But, to run people out of our society because they have a difference of opinion from us and a difference of approach is absolutely wrong.
In standing with GLAAD, it may well be that Glenn does not realize this is exactly what GLAAD is about. When it comes to Christians and others who disagree with GLAAD’s purpose in pushing the homosexual agenda on our nation, GLAAD’s spokesmen do not hesitate to use every vicious, false label, lie and smear to shut down those with whom they disagree.
Just ask actor Kirk Cameron. After he told the truth about God’s design for marriage in a March 2012 appearance on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” GLAAD came out swinging (so to speak). GLAAD’s communications director issued a statement encouraging Americans to say that Cameron’s “…views are harmful and have no place in modern America.” Hey, Glenn, GLAAD said that the normal view of the vast majority of people for the age-old, God-given design for marriage has no place in America. Do you see the implications of that, Glenn?
Of course, this is not an isolated incident from GLAAD. GLAAD routinely attacks those who express God’s view on the sin of homosexuality. The most recent example was another GLAAD spokesman lying about what Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson said:
Phil Robertson should look African American and gay people in the eyes and hear about the hurtful impact of praising Jim Crow laws and comparing gay people to terrorists. If dialogue with Phil is not part of [the] next steps then A&E has chosen profits over African American and gay people – especially its employees and viewers.
Phil Robertson neither praised Jim Crow laws nor compared homosexuals to terrorists, but GLAAD is known for routinely twisting the words and plain meanings of what Christians say (Tony Perkins knows this, too). GLAAD also called Mr. Robertson’s words, “some of the vilest and most extreme statements…” and said, “His quote was littered with outdated stereotypes and blatant misinformation.” These people with GLAAD are liars.
I could go on and on about the slimy tactics of GLAAD and other homosexual activist groups, but the point is made. Many of us on the Right have repeatedly warned that homosexual “rights” and our God-given freedoms cannot coexist; one must give way to the other. I don’t know if Glenn Beck understands this or is truly aware of the dire place America currently stands, with the rights of those who oppose the homosexual agenda directly in the crosshairs of that vicious movement and our own local, state and federal governments.
At the very least, Glenn should reconsider standing with GLAAD. It’s a noble to cause to defend others’ freedom of speech, but in so doing, it’s foolish to align yourself with a homo-fascist organization whose aim is to silence all opposition.
Our father, who art in the White House, Ayatollah Obama is thy name
Thy kingdom come, no gun for anyone
In Socialist America as it is in China
Give us this day our monthly food stamps
And forgive us our college loans, as you give us Obama Phones
Lead us not into debt ceilings but into Obama Care,
And deliver us to your bias “Associated Press” & Illegal Alien Scamnesty
For thine is the gaydom, and the perversion and the end of America as we know it

At this point, only the most disengaged and uninformed among us cannot see that America has been taken over by communists. You can call them socialists or Marxists if you like, but the bottom line is still the same: authoritarian, centralized government control of our nation. This is the culmination of at least a hundred years of steady, subversive communist infiltration of our federal, state and local governments and all our major institutions by those who embrace this evil, tyrannical ideology.
There is no reaching across the aisle to work with these people unless you want to draw back a bloody nub. There can be no compromise with anti-Americanism. There can be no dialogue with those who oppose all that America stands for, all its unparalleled freedoms and opportunity for everyone. This is a battle for the heart and soul and the very existence of the United States as it was founded, and although we will never quit fighting, we’re losing this battle to the lawless reprobates who are running our country.
While we should not be surprised at any malfeasance that comes from Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and his fellow travelers in Congress, the courts, his administration and federal bureaucracies, last week’s despicable move by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid still left the nation stunned (those who are paying attention anyway). For him to strip the minority of its ability to thwart Obama’s rogues’ gallery of leftist radical nominees is one of the last nails in the coffin of our freedom. Don’t doubt it for a minute. Reid’s killing of the filibuster is a very big deal.
Some on the Right are saying that the Democrats will one day regret this decision, but why would they regret it if their power is fully cemented in the process? We now can’t stop most of Obama’s awful nominees, unless it’s at the committee level (good luck with that). Obama will stack and pack the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals (and other courts throughout the nation) with his Marxist buddies, and then how will we stop the march of his “green” communist machine, the hellish Obamacare and unaccountable federal bureaucracies controlled by his fellow commies? How will we stop the out-of-control Environmental Protection Agency from killing our coal industry and crushing energy companies with insane regulations in fulfilling Obama’s desire to make electricity unaffordable? How will we stop the Department of the Interior from making further U.S. land grabs and stop it, and other federal agencies, from enacting more and more onerous, outrageous land use regulations? The global warming hoaxsters now have a major upper hand.
You might say that we can stop them at the ballot box in 2014 and 2016. Yes, I would hope so. Yet, we see the criminal Obama “Justice” Department, under the racist Eric Holder, doing all it can to stop the states from working to have honest elections. Democrat election and voter fraud, plus ignorant people voting, are what gets communists elected. We know this. The Left is always screeching that “there’s no election fraud!” They say this, and yet they work their tails off to keep dead people voting. No, I believe our elections are quite compromised at this point, and I’m certain that’s how Obama “won” a second term.
As I have written before, I believe that only a miracle of mercy, a reprieve from judgment on our nation by God can put a stop to the Obama communist machine’s destruction of America as founded. While this in no way means we should ever give up fighting against them, we can see that we are up against powerful, evil forces. Those of us who are Christians know that the forces we battle go beyond our human political enemies. There are spiritual forces, Satan and his demonic hordes, at the root of the fight. The corruption and immorality that infects our power structure has its source in Hell, and with only a few blessed and shining exceptions, this will be the case until Jesus returns to set things right.
So, can the communist Democrats be stopped? I don’t know, but it is certain that we must work harder than ever to elect people of high moral fiber to Congress in 2014, people who are not afraid to stand up to Obama, even to the point of working to impeach him and the other criminals in his administration. Harry Reid’s unilateral, unconscionable killing of the filibuster signals a very dark turn in the growing dictatorship we have under Obama. It is imperative that we pray for our nation, for God’s mercy on it, and that we double down on working to elect an impeachment Congress in 2014, because these enemies of America must somehow be stopped.
The following was written by Gina Miller.
We know that enemies of the United States have commandeered our federal government, as well as many powerful positions throughout our nation. The breathtaking scope of criminal actions and impeachable offenses from Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), his administration, unelected, unaccountable federal agencies and his fellow travelers in Congress is truly mind-numbing. That they continue to get away with all of it is a testament to the powerful forces backing them and what I can only conclude is fear of opposing them from others in power who could stand up to the communist Obama machine, yet don’t.
We are seeing assaults on our God-given liberties that we have not seen in the history of our nation. The pro-homosexual radicals are jamming their agenda through with Obama’s blessings, and now, with the latest version of the slyly-named Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), they stand on the brink of killing our fundamental right to worship God, follow our conscience and conduct our business as we see fit. As Matt Barber notes in his latest column, these people have as their goal nothing short of outlawing Christian morality.
Besides the reprehensible ENDA, we have more insanity coming from Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in the form of an edict that the agency admits is not in accordance with federal law. In part, the EEOC states:
There is no Federal law that clearly prohibits an employer from asking about arrest and conviction records. However, using such records as an absolute measure to prevent an individual from being hired could limit the employment opportunities of some protected groups and thus cannot be used in this way.
It “could limit the employment opportunities of some protected groups”? Oh, you mean criminals? Felons? The dregs of society? Maybe those people should have considered their future limited employment opportunities before engaging in crime. Of course, by “protected groups,” the EEOC means blacks, especially young black males, who just happen to disproportionately commit more crimes than the rest of the population.
Well, this nonsensical non-law law of the EEOC is not sitting well with employers or states, and on November 4th, the great State of Texas filed suit in Northern District Court in Lubbock, TX against Obama’s EEOC to stop its mandate. From the Judicial Watch report:
At least one state has gone to court to fight the Obama administration’s preposterous new regulation limiting employers’ rights to ban hiring felons because it discriminates against minorities.
It’s been an ongoing battle between a number of companies and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency that enforces the nation’s workplace discrimination [laws], for years. Under Obama the agency has dedicated extensive resources to go after businesses that check criminal background records to screen job applicants. In 2012 the EEOC officially adopted guidelines that limit employers’ ability to exclude felons from jobs.
The agency has also sued companies for using the checks, claiming in federal complaints that they disproportionately exclude blacks and other minorities from hire. That violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, according to the Obama administration, which has pushed hard to deter companies from using criminal background checks to screen job applicants. Of interesting note is that the EEOC conducts criminal background checks as a condition of employment and credit background checks for most of its positions. For some reason, it’s not discriminatory against minorities when the agency does it.
This week Texas fought back, suing the EEOC in federal court claiming that the guidelines against banning the hiring of felons endangers the pubic and encroaches on state sovereignty. The lawsuit says: “The State of Texas and its constituent agencies have the sovereign right to impose categorical bans on the hiring of criminals, and the EEOC has no authority to say otherwise.” Texas also asserts that the EEOC’s policy warning to investigate employers that use felony convictions as “an absolute bar to employment” conflicts with state law that prevents agencies from hiring felons.
Here again we have an unelected federal bureaucracy creating illegal, extra-congressional regulations, while unaccountable to the American people. I don’t need to tell you how utterly stupid this EEOC regulation is. You can easily see the folly of our tyrannical federal government dictating to American employers and state agencies that they must not refuse to hire criminals.
Looking at these two issues, ENDA and this EEOC mandate, we are watching this lawless Obama administration fraudulently using homosexuals and convicted felons as pawns to strip the rights and freedoms away from the American people. Under the guise of “non-discrimination” edicts, our fundamental, God-given liberty is being destroyed.
I applaud Texas for pushing back against this EEOC outrage, but one major problem we face today is that our recourse through the federal court system is dwindling, due to the staggering number of leftist radicals who have been installed in it, especially since Obama’s reign commenced. You may have seen a story from last week of Obama’s sinister admission at a private Democrat fundraiser in Dallas that he and his administration are “remaking the courts.” Oh, sure! The communists know that they must have their men on the courts in order to fully cement their lawlessness in the United States; after all, they can’t have a complete communist revolution while there are still judges who uphold American law and the Constitution.
We will be watching this case to see whether or not this lawsuit against Obama’s EEOC will succeed. On the surface, it would seem to be a slam-dunk win for Texas, not only on the plain old common sense legal side of things, but also because the EEOC’s mandate violates state law hiring practices in Texas. While it’s a plainly illegal EEOC dictate, I never assume rationality and lawfulness will prevail in our courts today. We’ll see.
It’s not just Texas, but all of the United States that could really use some major “declaratory and injunctive relief” from this criminal Obama administration.
The following was written by Gina Miller.
For several years now, many of us have been wondering who will stop the anti-American, anti-freedom, lawless Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), his administration and the commie weasels in Congress. As we watch the in-your-face criminal actions of Obama and his minions (the list of which seems interminable), it is clear that members of the other two co-equal branches of the federal government are either in agreement with him or are too scared of the shadowy powers behind Obama to lift a finger against him. This strange, debilitating non-resistance to Obama can’t be based solely on the fear of being falsely accused of “racism,” so I conclude it is based either on agreement with Obama or fear of something much worse.
The courts and Congress rarely defy him, and Congress is too wimpy to bring articles of impeachment, so who is left with the power to depose this junior tyrant who’s occupying our White House? The military is the only force with that power, and Obama knows it. So, what has been one of Obama’s chief goals since taking office? Destroy the United States military, remove the American patriots from it, and replace them with Obama drones—of the human variety.
We are regularly seeing stories of Obama administration outrages toward our military members. The homosexualization of our military is a big one. Obama has already packed his administration with homosexuals, and he has also shoved the radical homosexual agenda onto our military with his successful campaign to remove the already-misguided “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which never should have been put in place to begin with. Our military, from its founding, prior to President Clinton, forbade homosexuals from serving, period. It should have remained that way.
We have seen the repeated evil treatment Obama’s tools have given Christians in the military. We saw military chaplains being threatened with arrest by the Obama administration if they dared to do their Christian duties, or even simply pray with troops, during the “government shutdown.” We have seen Christian troops harassed and even punished if they don’t support the sham of homosexual “marriage.”
In the latest of a string of similar cases, news broke last week that soldiers attending a briefing at Fort Hood were advised that TEA Party and Christian groups like the American Family Association were “threats” to America and that any soldier who supports such groups could be punished. The Army later back-peddled on the statements, but we know where these military Obamatons stand. Obama clearly hates Christianity and Christians in the military (and anywhere else, for that matter), and he’s making sure his people are pushing them out.
Another outrage is the Obama administration’s purging of top commanders in the military. Don’t tell me “this is old news,” because it is ongoing, and it must continue to be made known. Last Wednesday, Glenn Beck’s The Blaze news site carried a piece by Sara Carter titled, “Blaze Sources: Obama Purging Military Commanders,” which outlines disturbing firings this year. Ms. Carter writes:
Nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the Obama administration this year, leading to speculation by active and retired members of the military that a purge of its commanders is underway.
Retired generals and current senior commanders that have spoken with TheBlaze say the administration is not only purging the military of commanders they don’t agree with, but is striking fear in the hearts of those still serving.
… Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, said the White House fails to take action or investigate its own, but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”
“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”
A Pentagon official who asked to remain nameless because they were not authorized to speak on the matter said even “young officers, down through the ranks have been told not to talk about Obama or the politics of the White House. They are purging everyone and if you want to keep your job — just keep your mouth shut.
Naturally, there will be those who say our troops and officers should not be speaking out against their Commander-in-Chief, that they should just do what they’re told without question. But, these military members have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. At what point should they stand up against the anti-constitutional lawlessness of this administration? Do they have a duty to defend the Obama regime in its criminal behavior? Do they not have a duty to resist it?
I have no doubt that Obama fears a military coup against him and his administration. He knows the U.S. military is likely the only earthly power that could remove him from office, and oh, if only it would! Yes, I know Congress could move to impeach him, but do you see any hint of those people growing the guts to do it? He’s not worried about Congress or even the courts stopping him, but he is worried about the military, so he’s doing all he can to commandeer it, to squash opposition, to rid it of those pesky patriots, Christians and any others who might question his communist sensibilities.
Barack Obama desperately needs to be removed from office. While we have certainly had bad presidents in the past, his lawlessness is unprecedented. His disdain for our nation’s Constitution is despicable. His disregard for the limit on his power is breathtaking. His systematic deconstruction of our once-free Republic is beyond vile. How can he be stopped? If not by the military, then how? If he is not stopped, then by then end of his current term, his destruction of our freedoms, our economy and our American way of life will likely be complete.
Again I ask, who will stop Barack Obama?
