Ryan Horsley looking at appointment to Congress

From Ryan Horsley owner of Red's Trading Post:

It appears that Senator Craig will be resigning today, despite how some feel Larry Craig was one of the strongest supporters of the Second Amendment. Governor Butch Otter will now pick a replacement to fill his seat, the contenders are Congressman Mike Simspon and Lt. Governor Jim Risch. If Simpson is appointed this will leave his Congressional seat open to be filled, which also happens to be in my district. I have had several people suggesting that I should be appointed to Craig's seat, but I feel that I at this time I would be better suited to the House of Representatives.

The Second Amendment is very important to me and I would strongly defend it. Please contact Governor Otter and let him know how important the Second Amendment is to you as well, it does not matter if you are a resident of the State, we all have a stake in this.

Immigration Raid in Cincinnati Nets 200 Illegal Immigrants

Cross posted from The Virtuous Republic

An immigration raid, at a chicken processing plant, just north of Cincinnati rounded up 200 illegal aliens according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. In addition to the raid in Fairfield, ICE served search warrants at the home offices of Koch Foods in Chicago.

Immigration agents raided a poultry packaging facility in Fairfield early today and arrested as many as 200 illegal immigrants who were working there.

The raid, one of the largest of its kind this year in Greater Cincinnati, is part of a two-year investigation into the hiring practices at the Chicago-based Koch Foods Company.

The Fairfield processing facility is located at 4100 Port Union Road in Fairfield.

Immigration officials described Koch Foods as an “egregious violator” of U.S. immigration laws, which means the company is suspected of knowingly hiring undocumented workers.

Brian Moskowitz, a special agent in charge of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for Ohio and Michigan, said agents arrived with search warrants today and seized documents and other materials that could be used to build a criminal case against company officials. Search warrants also were served today at the company’s Chicago offices.


Congratulations to ICE and Bulter County officials for conducting this raid. Right now, this nation is suffering because for years our elected officials have refused to guard the border and enforce our immigration laws. Finally due to pressure from ordinary Americans, our government, rather grudgingly, is starting to attack the problem of illegal immigration.

Additionally, the other part of the equation is a corporate culture of corruption. Our CEO's knowingly approve the hiring of illegal aliens to keep costs down, improve profits and ultimately line their own pockets with bonuses. But what is the cost of this corporate corruption? Local wages are depressed, local governments are saddled with the burden of providing education and medical benefits for illegals. And because of companies like Koch, our country keeps attracting illegal aliens who have no interest in becoming Americans. Illegal aliens only do the jobs at wages Americans will not accept.

Arizona's New Hiring Laws are Already Working

Cross posted from The Virtuous Republic

The Arizona Republic describes the effect the state's "impending" new law requiring employers to verify the immigration status of employees has on illegal immigrants.

It's impossible to count how many undocumented immigrants have fled because of the new law. But based on interviews with undocumented immigrants, immigrant advocates, community leaders and real-estate agents, at least several hundred have left since Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano signed the bill on July 2. There are an estimated 500,000 illegal immigrants in Arizona.

Some are moving to other states, where they think they will have an easier time getting jobs. Others are returning to Mexico, selling their effects and putting their houses on the market.

The number departing is expected to mushroom as the Jan. 1 deadline draws closer. After that, the law will require employers to verify the employment eligibility of their workers through a federal database.

"I would say we are losing at least 100 people a day," said Elias Bermudez, founder of Immigrants Without Borders and host of a daily talk-radio program aimed at undocumented immigrants.

Immigration hard-liners say the exodus is a sign the employer-sanctions law is working, even before it becomes official. The law is aimed at shutting off the job magnet by imposing harsh penalties on employers caught knowingly hiring unauthorized workers. Violators face a 10-day suspension of their business license for a first offense and could lose their license for a second offense.

"This is exactly what it is supposed to do. (Illegal immigrants) have no business being here, none," said Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, the main architect of the employer-sanctions law. "Shut off the lights, and the crowd will go home. I hope they will all self-deport." Read the rest here....

The experiment in Arizona, which hasn't even really started yet, shows that the enforcement of our current laws in combination with taking away the lure for illegal aliens, i.e., jobs, works. The program hasn't even started, and illegal immigrants are beginning to move on to greener pastures or as the story notes, return to Mexico.

Of course those states without a law like Arizona will have to quickly adopt such a measure or they will be inundated with illegal immigrants.

If you read the rest of the article, you will see that the usual suspects on the left are already declaring Arizona's economy will implode without illegal immigrant labor. Marxists and their ilk, who have no respect for our borders, obviously don't understand the free market. Illegal labor itself has been distorting the market by allow employers to pay substandard wages for certain classes of jobs. To attract legal labor, individuals and businesses (who were breaking the law in the first place) will have to now pay prevailing wages. Some prices may go up and some people may do without some services like child or lawn care. So be it.

In the long run, the market will adjust and Arizona will see several benefits as social services, schools, hospitals, and police departments will require fewer tax dollars as they will no longer have to deal with hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants.

Bias against whites shown in Miss. court case

I previously reported that Ike Brown was accused in the lawsuit and in supporting documents of paying and organizing notaries, some of whom illegally marked absentee ballots or influenced how the ballots were voted; of publishing a list of voters, all white, accompanied by a warning that they would be challenged at the polls; of importing black voters into the county; and of altering racial percentages in districts by manipulating the registration rolls. Well, here is the follow up:

From USA Today:
In a case that marked the federal government's first use of the Voting Rights Act to accuse African-Americans of discriminating against white voters, a judge on Monday ordered a Mississippi county Democratic Party and its chairman to forgo election activities until 2011.

U.S. District Judge Tom Lee issued the order as a remedy in the 2005 lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Under his order, a "referee-administrator" will have full authority over the party's primary and runoff elections through November 2011. The job went to former state Supreme Court justice Reuben Anderson, the first African-American to serve on the high court in Mississippi.[snip...]

Lee detailed in a lengthy June opinion how Brown orchestrated election activities so he could retain power. He called Brown dishonest and conniving, finding that he and party committee members schemed to disenfranchise white voters and dilute their voting strength.

"The court is convinced that Ike Brown, and the NDEC under his leadership, have engaged in racially motivated manipulation of the electoral process … to the detriment of white voters," he wrote.[snip...]

The defendants are appealing the ruling.
Now, that is an interesting turn of events. a black democrat convicted of racism against white people. It is about time the tables were rightly turned. we need to see more court cases going after voter fraud in this country.

Edwards’ poverty “plague” examined

The Census Bureau will release its annual report on poverty in America tomorrow. The report will show, as it has in the past that around 37 million people live in "official poverty". Presidential candidate John Edwards, who is running on the concept of the "Two Americas", the haves and have nots, will, no doubt try to exploit this report for his own political ambitions.

From The National Review:
In the past, Edwards has claimed that poverty in America is a “plague” which forces 37 million Americans to live in “terrible” circumstances. According to Edwards, an amazing “one in eight” Americans lack “enough money for the food, shelter, and clothing they need,” caught in a daily “struggle with incredible poverty.”

However, examination of the living standards of the 37 million or so persons, the government defines as “poor,” reveals that America’s poverty “plague” may not be as “terrible” or “incredible” as anti-poverty crusader Edwards contends.

If being “poor” means (as Edwards claims it does) a lack of nutritious food, adequate warm housing, and clothing for a family, then very few of America’s 37 million official “poor” people can be regarded as actually poor. Some material hardship does exist in the United States, but, in reality, it is quite restricted in scope and severity.

The following are facts about persons defined as “poor” by the Census Bureau, taken from a variety of government reports:

46 percent of all poor households actually own their own homes. The average home owned by persons classified as poor by the Census Bureau is a three-bedroom house with one-and-a-half baths, a garage, and a porch or patio.

80 percent of poor households have air conditioning. By contrast, in 1970, only 36 percent of the entire U.S. population enjoyed air conditioning.

Only six percent of poor households are overcrowded; two thirds have more than two rooms per person.

The typical poor American has more living space than the average individual living in Paris, London, Vienna, Athens, and other cities throughout Europe. (These comparisons are to the average citizens in foreign countries, not to those classified as poor.)

Nearly three quarters of poor households own a car; 31 percent own two or more cars.

97 percent of poor households have a color television; over half own two or more color televisions.

78 percent have a VCR or DVD player.

62 percent have cable or satellite TV reception.

89 percent own microwave ovens, more than half have a stereo, and a more than a third have an automatic dishwasher.

As a group, America’s poor are far from being chronically undernourished. The average consumption of protein, vitamins, and minerals is virtually the same for poor and middle-class children and, in most cases, is well above recommended norms. Poor children actually consume more meat than do higher-income children and have average protein intakes 100-percent above recommended levels. Most poor children today are, in fact, super-nourished and grow up to be, on average, one inch taller and ten pounds heavier than the GIs who stormed the beaches of Normandy in World War II.

While the poor are generally well-nourished, some poor families do experience temporary food shortages. But, even this condition is relatively rare; 89 percent of the poor report their families have “enough” food to eat, while only two percent say they “often” do not have enough to eat.

Overall, the typical American defined as poor by the government has a car, air conditioning, a refrigerator, a stove, a clothes washer and dryer, and a microwave. He has two color televisions, cable or satellite TV reception, a VCR, or DVD player, and a stereo. He is able to obtain medical care. His home is in good repair and is not overcrowded. By his own report, his family is not hungry, and he had sufficient funds in the past year to meet his family’s essential needs. While this individual’s life is not opulent, it is far from the popular images of dire poverty conveyed by the press, liberal activists, and politicians.
Wow, that sounds terrible! Those poor people! Imagine being forced to live in a three-bedroom house with one-and-a-half baths, a garage, and a porch or patio? 97 percent of "poor people" have color tvs and more than half two or more? Oh, the horror! We have got to save these people from this life!

I keep saying poverty is relative and there is no true poverty in this country. We have got to be the only country in the world who have fat homeless people.
Much official poverty that does exist in the United States can be reduced, particularly among children. There are two main reasons that American children are poor: Their parents don’t work much, and their fathers are absent from the home.

In both good and bad economic environments, the typical American poor family with children is supported by only 800 hours of work during a year — the equivalent of 16 hours of work per week. If work in each family were raised to 2,000 hours per year — the equivalent of one adult working 40 hours per week throughout the year — nearly 75 percent of poor children would be lifted out of official poverty.

As noted above, father absence is another major cause of child poverty. Nearly two thirds of poor children reside in single-parent homes; each year, an additional 1.5 million children are born out of wedlock. If poor mothers married the fathers of their children, nearly three quarters of the nation’s impoverished youth would immediately be lifted out of poverty.

Yet, although work and marriage are reliable ladders out of poverty, the welfare system perversely remains hostile to both. Major programs such as food stamps, public housing, and Medicaid continue to reward idleness and penalize marriage. If welfare could be turned around to encourage work and marriage, the nation’s remaining poverty could be reduced.
Now this guy is just being plain mean. How dare he say people should get married, raise their children and work hard? He must be some crazy conservative.
Another important factor boosting poverty in the U.S. is our broken immigration system which imports hundreds of thousands of additional poor people each year from abroad through both legal and illegal immigration channels. One quarter of all poor persons in the U.S. are now first generation immigrants or the minor children of those immigrants. Roughly one in ten of the persons counted among the poor by Census is either an illegal immigrant or the minor child of an illegal. Immigrants tend to be poor because they have very low education levels. A quarter of legal immigrants and fifty to sixty percent of illegals are high-school dropouts. By contrast, only nine percent of non-immigrant Americans lack a high school degree.

As long as the present steady flow of poverty-prone persons from foreign countries continues, efforts to reduce the total number of poor in the U.S. will be far more difficult. A sound anti-poverty strategy must not only seek to increase work and marriage among native born Americans, it must also end illegal immigration, and dramatically increase the skill level of future legal immigrants.
Oh, now he has definitely gone too far! How dare he point ou that we are importing poverty?? How dare he bemoan the hard working immigrants, legal and illegal aliens? This guy is obviously a racist who hates immigrants! We have got to demand he be fired immediately for expressing these ideas!

It is time to wake up to the FACTS in life and stop dreaming of utopia and communism. We have got to secure our borders and get rid of the illegal aliens. We cannot and should not import the worlds poor. For those of you that think we should, stop complaining there are poor people in our country; you want them here!

A country is not a country without borders. We must control our immigration and only allow immigrants that can contribute to our country, not live off it and bring it down.

Just burglars folks...

From the News Observer:
FORT MILL, S.C. - York County Sheriff's deputies arrested four men in Fort Mill shortly before midnight Wednesday in a plot to detonate two pipe bombs in a Charlotte-Mecklenburg school, the department said.[snip]

The Sheriff's Department says the men were planning to explode the bombs in a school to divert authorities away from the Founders Federal Credit Union on South Commerce Boulevard by Westinghouse Boulevard.[snip]

But I know you were thinking terrorists and if we are not careful it will be. Gun free zones are a nut cases playground and our children are left unprotected.

God Still answers Prayers?

A young man had been to Wednesday Night Bible Study.

The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's
voice The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does God still speak to

After service, he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and
they discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how
God had led them in different ways.

It was about ten o'clock when the young man started driving home.
Sitting in his car, he just began to pray, "God...If you still speak
to people, speak to me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey."

As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest
thought to stop and buy a gallon of milk.

He shook his head and said out loud, "God is that you?" He didn't get
a reply and started on toward home.

But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk.

The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the
voice of God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli.

"Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk." It didn't seem
like too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He
stopped and purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home.

As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge, "Turn Down that street."

This is crazy he thought, and drove on past the intersection.

Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street.

At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.

Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will."

He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop.
He pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in a semi-
commercial area of town. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst
of neighborhoods either.

The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the
people were already in bed.

Again, he sensed something, "Go and give the milk to the people in the
house across the street." The young man looked at the house. It was
dark and it looked like the people were either gone or they were
already asleep. He started to open the door and then sat back in the
car seat.

"Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up,
they are going to be mad and I will look stupid." Again, he felt like
he should go and give the milk.

Finally, he opened the door, "Okay God, if this is you, I will go to
the door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a
crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count
for something, but if they don't answer right away, I am out of here."

He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some
noise inside. A man's voice yelled out, "Who is it? What do you
want?" Then the door opened before the young man could get away.

The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt. He looked like
he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he
didn't seem too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep.
"What is it?"

The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, "Here, I brought this to you."

The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway.

Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen.

The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The
man had tears streaming down his face.

The man began speaking and half crying, "We were just praying. We had
some big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn't have any
milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how
to get some milk."

His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I ask him to send an Angel with some.

Are you an Angel?"

The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he
had on him and put in the man's hand. He turned and walked back
toward his car and the tears were streaming down his face.

He knew that God still answers prayers.

Pakistan: 310 killed in militant fight

Well, well, well, it looks like President Musharraf has finally had enough...

From the AP:
MIRAN SHAH, Pakistan - A month of fierce fighting near the Afghan border has killed about 250 militants and 60 Pakistani troops, the army said Friday, hours after the deaths of six soldiers in a suicide attack and roadside bombing.

Pakistan, a key ally of the United States in fighting terrorism, has deployed about 90,000 troops in the border region to try to contain al-Qaida and Taliban militants and their local supporters, who often target security forces.
President Musharraf is in a tight spot, he has a light grip on power in Pakistan, so he cannot outrage his citizens. Yet, he has to do something about these terrorists in the wild region of Pakistan. After all, they have threatened him and tried to assassinate him. We will have to watch this to see how it unfolds, but now he seems to be moving in the right direction.

I know no one wants to hear this, but we will be fighting terrorism long after I am dead, so toughen up and accept this fact.

Illegal Immigrant Charged In Child’s Death

Cross Posted from My Country My View




FROM : - The News On 6 KOTV - 8/22/2007 8:16 PM - Updated 8/23/2007 6:16 AM

Charges are filed in the kicking death of a Coweta toddler.

Michael Hernandez was in a Wagoner County district court Wednesday, facing first degree murder charges. He's accused of kicking his girlfriend's 2-year-old son to death.
A judge denied Hernandez bond,but the victim's family is concerned his immigration status couldchange that, because he's here illegally from Mexico.

The News On6's Ashli Sims reports the victim's grandmother says she's worried he might be sent back to Mexico before justice can be served.

Kelynn Byrd's grandmother says burying her 2-year-old grandson was the hardest thing she ever had to do.

"He is, he's very beautiful and he was so sweet," said Kelynn's grandmother Michelle Ebel.

The toddler's life was cut short when he died from blunt chest and abdominal trauma.
Police say his mother's boyfriend, Michael Hernandez, was the only one home at the time of the boy's injury.
And they say Hernandez confessed to repeatedly kicking Kelynn in the chest.

"Whatever kind of anger that can lead up to someone doing that to a 2-and-a-half-year-old boy is just beyond me," said Ebel.

Hernandezis charged with first degree murder and is now behind bars in theWagoner County jail. The judge in the case contacted the Mexicanconsulate, because Hernandez is a Mexican citizen, here illegally. Kelynn's family is afraid that Hernandez could be sent back to Mexico before the American legal system can run its course.

A spokesperson from the Wagoner County district attorney's office told The News On 6 they would fight any extradition or deportation. He says they plan on proceeding to a conviction, and if Hernandez is convicted they intend for him to serve his sentence in Oklahoma.

U.S.Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, confirms that illegal immigrants would go through the same criminal justice process as anyoneelse.

ICE says they do flag illegal immigrants in state custody, so if they're eligible for bond, they're released into ICE custody instead of back into the community. ICE also added if Hernandez was tried and convicted for the murder of Kelynn Byrd he would serve his sentence first, and then be deported back to Mexico.

Michael Hernandez will be back in court next month for a preliminary hearing.

Is Your Church a Secret Sanctuary?

Cross Posted from Faultline USA

Disclaimer: This article does not discount the faith of those true pacifists who have plumbed the depths of their Christian conscience and ardently believe that there is no such thing as a just war, or that no person should ever be turned away regardless of individual circumstances.

The growth of leftist Christianity within Catholicism, Mainline Protestantism, and even among Evangelical Christians, is a frightening phenomena that has received scant attention. Last week’s news of the arrest and deportation of the Sanctuary movement’s spokesperson, Elvira Arellano, highlights not only the strength of the left within urban churches, but Marxist Christianity (or Liberation Theology) is a fast-growing evolution of heretical Christianity effecting every little congregation is the U.S.

Elvira Arellano became the face behind the nation's immigration debate when she sought refuge from immigration authorities in a Chicago church a year ago.
U.S. immigration officials had ordered her deportation for working at O'Hare International Airport using a false Social Security number.
But Arellano holed up for a year in the Chicago sanctuary so she wouldn't be separated from her 8-year-old U.S. citizen son.

Many traditional American’s have failed to realize the actual links between today’s political movements and our churches. Many of these links come through denominational sponsored charitable networks and coalitions such as the National Council of Churches.

The National Council of Churches Supports the U.N. . . .It's not as simple as the NCC agreeing with your's the matter of a percentage of the funds you give to your church being sent to the headquarters of your denomination and from there, likely, a donation made to the NCC. These figures are difficult to confirm, but the National Council of Churches must be funded in some manner. On the positive side, reports that donations from mainstream churches have significantly declined, but have been replaced with funds from political-action groups - and numerous qualify as "far-left" activism.

Some political movements have made genuine progress for humanity in this country. One example comes from the Black church in America. There is no doubt that the civil rights movement would have gone nowhere if it were not for the political activism within the Black churches in America. The strength of the Black churches in America is evidenced by the fact that until recently almost every Black politician who managed to gain national recognition had a Rev. next to his/her name.

It would be a grave mistake to discount the growing political activism and influence the leftist church is exerting on the questions of warfare and of immigration. The New Sanctuary movement is already becoming entrenched within many Christian denominations. This is an excerpt from their web page:

The New Sanctuary Movement is a coalition of interfaith religious leaders and participating congregations, called by our faith to respond actively and publicly to the suffering of our immigrant brothers and sisters residing in the United States. . . .

Called by faith to respond . . .

Unfortunately, there are many wolves in sheep’s clothing who masquerade as Christians within denominational leadership, and these Marxists have found the key to manipulating the church faithful into funding those groups that foster attacks on the sovereignty of these United States.

The left is gaining converts daily by an appeal to a false Christian guilt that would equate law-breakers who leave their country to improve their economic condition with slavery or with political refugees who are facing torture, death, or genocide within their home nations. Here’s an example of the sweetly twisted rhetoric:

"The Gospel message calls us to welcome the stranger and to stand in solidarity with the least of these," said Chett Pritchett, Wesley Theological Seminary student. "It's not a political issue, it is a Christian issue." . . .

Make no mistake. This IS a political issue!!!

Nowhere do any of these open border Marxist activists mention our Christian duty to protect, to defend, or to preserve our nation against an invasion of people that come here illegally flaunting our laws with no intention of assimilation and who would destroy the very fabric of our nation. No where do these open border activists mention that it is every Christian’s duty to protect the future of their country for their children. Nowhere do these leftists mention the long-standing traditional Christian understanding of just warfare as they sabotage the war in Iraq.

How do the leftist Christians manage to out trump years of Christian tradition? The first step (begun many years ago) is to promote the “social gospel” which emphasizes social justice and at the same time denigrates individualism. Christians are urged to think with a group mind in terms of “community” rather than individual moral choice or even individual salvation. Jesus is portrayed as a revolutionary freedom-fighter. Aggression against the enemy is only fostered if it is the undefined “oppressed people” seeking justice against any form of established government anywhere. It is a revolutionary gospel that hides its true objectives from the church faithful and couches its opposition to Christian tradition in the gentlest religious imagery. Popular in Latin America, Liberation Theology foments world-wide revolutions with the final objective – world-wide Marxist Christianity.

Independent congregations are not as at risk of succumbing to the New Sanctuary Movement as are the denominations. If you are a member of an old venerable Christian denomination the odds are about 99.9% that the movement for sanctuary is well under the control of the growing number of leftist leaders within your denomination’s headquarters and, of course, within the hallowed halls of university seminaries.

Here is a partial list of participating denominations from the New Sanctuary Movement’s web page:

Denominational/Interdenominational National Leadership Present: Unitarian Universalist, United Church of Christ, Episcopal, United Methodist, Union of Reform Judaism, Interfaith Worker Justice. Additional religious traditions: Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Presbyterian, American Friends Service Committee, Evangelical Christian, Muslim, Sikh

The Virtue of War: Reclaiming the Classic Christian Traditions East & West

Here’s an excerpt from a review:

The preeminence of pacifism within the Church as the proper reaction to military conflict is so established within contemporary Christianity that it is sometimes forgotten that this has not been the historic Christian position. Orthodox theologians Alexander F. C. Webster and Darrell Cole remind us of this fact in The Virtue of War, an important apologia for the Christian tradition of the just war. . . The most renowned figures in both Catholicism (St. Ambrose, St. Augustine of Hippo, St Thomas Aquinas) and Protestantism (Martin Luther, John Calvin) all supported the idea of the just war although their presentations and arguments may have varied in approach. . .

Here’s an excerpt from another review of the above book by James V. Schall, S.J. , a professor in the government department at Georgetown University. His latest book is "Roman Catholic Political Philosophy" (Lexington).

The occasion of this book is, no doubt, the aftermath of September 11 and the need to see the proportions of a new kind of war in our time, a new kind that is a very old kind. With the paradox that "war is a virtue" or a "positive good," the authors force us to look again at actions designed to face evils that few are willing to meet because they cannot understand how doing anything effective can be just. This book is another way of looking at the problem, an ancient way, as it turns out.

It should be noted that defending our country against those who would destroy it (from within or without) falls within the theology of Just Warfare!

Some short excerpts from related articles worth reading:

The Battle for American Unity: . . In the last century, many Christian churches began to focus on inclusiveness and Christian unity became the primary core value. Divisive moral issues were ignored or downplayed. Individual behaviors were never judged. Emphasis was always placed on God’s forgiving love rather than on individual accountability to God.

Your Mainline Christmas Sermon: . . . Just as few Americans are very much aware of the growing influence of Islamofascism on American politics, even fewer Americans are aware of the Marxist trends (born of Liberation Theology) that are fast overcoming mainline denominations and informing new ministers in mainline Protestantism! Catholics and Evangelicals are not immune to this growing trend either.

United Nations Entrenched Within Most Christian Denominations: . . There are over 100,000 local congregations and 45 million Christians supporting the above goals – and most of these Christians don’t even know what they are supporting or that much of their money is going to tax-exempt leftist foundations!!!

Obama’s Liberation Theology Church “. . .The black Christ is he who threatens the structure of evil as seen in white society, rebelling against it, thereby becoming the embodiment of what the black community knows that it must become. . .”

What other’s are saying:

The New Sanctuary Movement is a religious and political network of radical left congregations who claim America’s immigration laws are immoral and — like slavery and Jim Crow laws — should be repealed. . .

Read Whom would Jesus bomb? By Roger W. Gardner

Although I love this very accurate quote from the Vanishing American, I completely disagree with the conclusion .

Certainly the liberalized caricature of Christianity, which is only a shadow of the real Christianity in actual fact, is a religion which would command the West to sacrifice itself for the sake of the 'wretched of the earth.' This version of Christianity preaches guilt for our success and material prosperity, and guilt-trips us into giving away what we have to the victims, and sharing all our possessions with them, including our country. Unfortunately this version of Christianity is growing in numbers of adherents; many formerly conservative denominations and churches are being pulled into the vortex of leftist Christianity by liberal clerics and preachers masquerading as traditional Christians, and many formerly conservative Christians are being led by these pied pipers where they would not formerly have gone, into the globalist, universalist system.

Another Example of Why We Need Border Enforcement

Cross posted from The Virtuous Republic

We hear that patrolling the border hurts illegal immigrants who only want to better their lives. We hear that building a border fence will hurt wildlife, divide communities along the border, and destroy archaeological sites. Yet, none of these groups that are for open borders will admit that there is a problem, a problem of crime and criminals entering from Mexico into the United States of America.

On August 21, Border Patrol agents in Arizona had a good day. At the Naco station, they stopped a man from illegally crossing the border. During processing they found, "he had been convicted of having sex with a minor and rape by force or fear in 2003 in San Bernardino County...." Good job guys, you prevented this sexually perverted felon from committing more crimes in the United States.

A little further along the border on the same day, agents captured an SUV loaded with 1,500 pounds of marijuana.

To all those against the border fence, I say that protecting Americans from criminals and drug traffickers trumps the rights of wildlife. Guarding the border does and can work. It just takes a commitment from Washington, which of course requires that ordinary Americans keep up the pressure on their representatives.

Geraldo Rivera, new spokesman for criminal illegal aliens

Cross posted from Right Truth

Today Geraldo took the leader of Mothers Against Illegal Aliens on Fox on Your World With Neil Cavuto. Geraldo also took on Tom Tancredo on Hannity and Colmes. I guess he is Fox's token 'balanced' commenter who is FOR criminal illegal aliens inside the United States.

It appears that Geraldo Rivera's support of criminal illegal aliens is nothing new. Last year he was advocating for Elvira Arellano who took refuge in a Chicago church and was deported this week to Mexico. Geraldo said:
"Isn't it impossible almost, not to be sympathetic to this mom and her son?" and "Pat isn't it a kind of bait and switch? We lure the illegals here with the promise of work and now we're telling them, either leave or be arrested?" [snip]Rivera then went further saying that some compare her "to Rosa Parks and other icons of the civil rights movement."NewsBusters

On the O'Reilly Factor, talking about "Illegal alien Jose Carranza from Peru, who stands accused of raping a five- year-old girl, assaulting some other people, and now murdering the three young people" , Geraldo said, "The last thing that they should be concerned about is the immigration status." O'Reilly responds:
O'REILLY: Look, these three would be alive. The two in Virginia city — Virginia Beach would be alive if the local authorities cooperated with Homeland Security and reported criminal aliens to ICE. You've got to get behind that, Geraldo. That has to happen or we're going to have more dead people. (Fox)

China threatens 'nuclear option' of dollar sales, economy in trouble

Things are getting serious in the economy. On the Cusp of a housing bubble burst, due to reckless sub-prime home loans, the FED poured 3.5 million dollars into the banking system and The Central Bank infused the market with nearly 120 BILLION dollars, China is holding over a trillion of U.S. Bonds.

From the Telegraph:
The Chinese government has begun a concerted campaign of economic threats against the United States, hinting that it may liquidate its vast holding of US treasuries if Washington imposes trade sanctions to force a yuan revaluation.

Two officials at leading Communist Party bodies have given interviews in recent days warning - for the first time - that Beijing may use its $1.33 trillion (£658bn) of foreign reserves as a political weapon to counter pressure from the US Congress.

Shifts in Chinese policy are often announced through key think tanks and academies.

Described as China's "nuclear option" in the state media, such action could trigger a dollar crash at a time when the US currency is already breaking down through historic support levels.

It would also cause a spike in US bond yields, hammering the US housing market and perhaps tipping the economy into recession. It is estimated that China holds over $900bn in a mix of US bonds.

Xia Bin, finance chief at the Development Research Centre (which has cabinet rank), kicked off what now appears to be government policy with a comment last week that Beijing's foreign reserves should be used as a "bargaining chip" in talks with the US.

"Of course, China doesn't want any undesirable phenomenon in the global financial order," he added.

He Fan, an official at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, went even further today, letting it be known that Beijing had the power to set off a dollar collapse if it choose to do so.

"China has accumulated a large sum of US dollars. Such a big sum, of which a considerable portion is in US treasury bonds, contributes a great deal to maintaining the position of the dollar as a reserve currency. Russia, Switzerland, and several other countries have reduced the their dollar holdings.

"China is unlikely to follow suit as long as the yuan's exchange rate is stable against the dollar. The Chinese central bank will be forced to sell dollars once the yuan appreciated dramatically, which might lead to a mass depreciation of the dollar," he told China Daily.

The threats play into the presidential electoral campaign of Hillary Clinton, who has called for restrictive legislation to prevent America being "held hostage to economic decicions being made in Beijing, Shanghai, or Tokyo".

She said foreign control over 44pc of the US national debt had left America acutely vulnerable.

Simon Derrick, a currency strategist at the Bank of New York Mellon, said the comments were a message to the US Senate as Capitol Hill prepares legislation for the Autumn session.

"The words are alarming and unambiguous. This carries a clear political threat and could have very serious consequences at a time when the credit markets are already afraid of contagion from the subprime troubles," he said.

A bill drafted by a group of US senators, and backed by the Senate Finance Committee, calls for trade tariffs against Chinese goods as retaliation for alleged currency manipulation.

The yuan has appreciated 9pc against the dollar over the last two years under a crawling peg but it has failed to halt the rise of China's trade surplus, which reached $26.9bn in June.
I have to tell you, we need to take any money we have invested and put it into gold and/or silver backed funds. The U.S. Dollar might fall as much as 30% before the new year and we have no idea how bad this is yet. Now, China is threatening to collapse our economy and make the U.S. dollar all but worthless. Think metals folks, metals...

Huckabee promotes 'open door' policy at LULAC convention

So Huckabee wants to be your President? Well, the past can come back to haunt you...

From the Arkansas News Bureau:
Thursday, Jun 30, 2005
By Wesley Brown
Arkansas News Bureau

LITTLE ROCK - In a impassioned speech before hundreds of influential Hispanic civil rights leaders from across the nation, Gov. Mike Huckabee told a captive audience Wednesday that America is great because it has always opened it doors up to people seeking a better way of life.

"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you," Huckabee said, citing the Golden Rule. "I have tried to govern that way and it stands to reason that I really do believe that what made this great country so great and so unique is that it has always been a place for people to run to - and not run from.

"I would hope that no matter who we are, or where we are from, that America should always be a place that opens its arms, opens it heart, opens its spirit to people who come because they want the best for their families ...," Huckabee said as the largely Hispanic audience gave him a standing ovation.

Huckabee was the keynote speaker, along with Tyson Foods Inc. Chairman and CEO John Tyson, at a noon luncheon of the League of United Latin American Citizens, which is holding its 76th annual convention in Little Rock.

About 10,000 political, community and business leaders, along with exhibitors and speakers are in Little Rock attending the convention at the Statehouse Convention Center. The convention started Monday and runs through Saturday.

Although he never actually talked about the U.S. or Arkansas immigration policy, Huckabee made it very clear where he stood on the issue. In his opening remarks, he said the nation will need to address the concerns of the Hispanic community because of its growing influence and population base.

"Pretty soon, Southern white guys like me may be in the minority," Huckabee said jokingly as the crowd roared in laughter.

He told the LULAC delegates that their presence in the state's capital city was very important because Arkansas has one of the fastest growing Hispanic populations in the nation.

"Your gathering is so very significant for our state," Huckabee said. "We are delighted to have you."

Despite several light moments, Huckabee did not stray away from several controversial issues that made him a target of criticism during the recently ended 85th General Assembly. He said Arkansas needs to make the transition from a traditional Southern state to one that recognizes and cherishes diversity "in culture, in language and in population."

"This is an issue that is going to require extraordinary efforts on both sides of the border, particularly those coming from Mexico," Huckabee said of verifying the status of illegal aliens. "But I am confident that our government will recognize that we should accommodate people who wish to provide the best opportunities for their families (and) employers so that we can make sure our economy has the necessary work force."

During the legislation session, Huckabee criticized an immigration bill by Republican senators Jim Holt of Springdale and Denny Altes of Fort Smith as un-Christian, un-American, irresponsible and anti-life.

Senate Bill 206, which died in the Senate, would have required proof of citizenship to register to vote and also force state agencies to report suspected cases of people living in the country illegally. Holt, R-Springdale, replied later to Huckabee's comments that Christian charity does not include turning a blind eye to lawbreaking.
That is all I need to know about this man. We don't need another El Presidente in this country. No manner of explanation or spin will make me vote for this man.

So, we have seen the raids on Tyson foods and are boycotting them for hiring illegal aliens, let's see what theCEO of Tyson Foods has to say...
Tyson also credited LULAC leaders for pushing the company to add Hispanics to the Tyson board and promote more Latinos to upper management and executive positions.

He also said in that last 15 years, the number of Hispanics that work for the Arkansas company has increased significantly.

"I am proud to tell you that more than 40,000 of our workers are Latinos," Tyson said of the company's 114,000 employees. "We are learning, growing and benefiting from that diversity."
Well, I guess that explains all the illegal aliens hired by Tyson Foods, huh?
