There are three holidays that cause otherwise sound-in-the-faith evangelical, conservative, and fundamentalist Christians to lose their religion.
One of these holidays doesn’t even have to fall on a Sunday for some churches to go wild with celebration.
In this day and age, “selling war” on the big screen has become a vastly lucrative enterprise, and business is booming.This past week, television broadcasters worldwide have been particularly enthusiastic in celebrating a glorified image of war and violence as promoted by big media and the film industry.
Last Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony generously bestowed its highest accolades on films unsurprisingly produced by the West that effectively and insidiously distort the truth on armed conflict and feed large demographics completely biased and inaccurate views of war theatres around the globe.
What the corporate-funded Hollywood propaganda machine counts on is that not only will the broad viewing public buy into its invented “truths”, but that in doing so the idea of war – in particular the absurd oxymoron of “humanitarian war” – will come to be increasingly accepted by a populace growing more and more numb to the violence being splashed across its screens.
Will Our Rights Be Preserved by Our Sheriffs?

The Land of Enchantment is a physically beautiful land indeed, yet one with the misfortune to be so traditionally misgoverned by our liberal Democrat majority as to be relegated too frequently to the very lowest rankings of the states when it comes to poverty, education, health, etc.
Once in a while, however, we do find something besides our majestic landscapes to be proud of. A statement just issued by the New Mexico Sheriffs’ Association and signed by 29 of 33 county sheriffs, declaring that their oaths of office don’t require them to enforce federal laws they consider unconstitutional, provides New Mexicans with just such a moment. While I’ve read and heard similar statements from individual sheriffs and police chiefs in other states, I’ve not seen anything comparable from a statewide law enforcement association.
It’s a brand new year but already the cash-strained United States Postal Service is showing that it’s feeling the financial heat that kept zapping it in 2012. Starting on Sunday, the price of a first-class stamp will go from $0.45 to $0.46 as we were warned last year. Post card stamps will also rise a penny to $0.33. Sure, it’s only a penny, but it’s a penny you don’t have to pay on Saturday that you do on Sunday.

David Gregory Asks Obama ‘Is This Your Lincoln Moment?’
Posted on Sunday, December 30, 2012 1:24:59 PM by chessplayer
Of all the gushing, fawning, sycophantic things uttered by Obama-loving media members in 2012,
“Is this your Lincoln moment?” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Calls for increased gun control are being renewed in the wake of the Newtown, Conn. school shooting last Friday, and President Barack Obama indicated he would pursue measures to stop such events from happening in the future. Obama said at a memorial service Sunday that he would “use whatever power this office holds” to prevent such massacres.
In yet another high-profile public shooting, 20 children and six adults were killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School when a gunman forced his way in and began firing. Obama spoke strongly about the failure of the country to protect its children, and suggested his administration would explore new efforts to better regulate guns.
On Dec. 13, 2011,
Marine Lance Cpl. Christian Brown was leading his squad on a foot patrol in Afghanistan’s Helmand province when he stepped on an explosive device that blew off both his legs, one above the knee, the other below his hip. He also lost part of his right index finger.
Last Sunday, almost exactly a year since those grievous injuries forced him to learn to walk on two successive pairs of prosthetic legs, Brown was “humiliated” to the point of tears on a Delta flight from Atlanta to Washington after being clumsily wheeled to the back row of the plane, according to a complaint sent to the airline by an outraged fellow passenger….
Because next year’s inauguration falls on a Sunday, President Obama will hold only a small, private swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, and will hold a big public redo the next day.
“The End of the World’s Coming” (Mark 13:24-37)
“In those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.” Mark 13:24-25.
Sunday, April 14, 1935. Palm Sunday. Across the Great Plains of America–in Kansas, Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, Colorado, New Mexico–people awoke that day to a bright and clear morning. It looked like it would be a fine, sunny day. This came as a welcome relief. For several years, that part of the country had been suffering from a severe drought, and dust storms–“black dusters,” they called them–were a frequent occurrence. Most every day was gray and hazy now. The dust carried in the air made it hard to breathe. People–children and old people, especially–got “dust pneumonia,” which killed many. But this day, Palm Sunday, 1935, looked like it would be a clear and sunny day.
Has the nation gone irreversibly blue? Did intraparty disunity sabotage Mitt Romney‘s presidential quest? Or is there some other explanation for the nation’s re-election of a president with the worst record in decades?
I received an email from a brilliant conservative friend who wonders whether Republicans can ever win another election and thus whether the nation is forever lost. I ran into a college student at church the Sunday before the election, and despite his strong conservatism and high intelligence, he admitted confusion about the candidates’ respective positions after the presidential debates.
Went to the local PO today,
saw the flag at half-mast and asked the manager why. I was thinking, oh dear we have lost another good soldier to that abysmal war!
Do you remember when America was a place where you could attend a public gathering without having to worry if a sociopath was going to set off a bomb or start wildly shooting people? Do you remember when America was a place where you could walk down the street without having to worry that a vicious pack of teens might attack you for no reason whatsoever? Do you remember when America was a place where you could leave your car unlocked, your house unlocked and your garage open without having to worry about thieves?
“On a recent Sunday afternoon, I had the most incredible experience: I sat in a roomful of 50 men and women who had lunch, talked, reminisced, and enjoyed themselves for four hours. The incredible part was that they did all that without cell phones, without liquor, without vulgar language, without loud “music,” without blaring TV screens, and without wrecking the place.
All of them are white. All of them are decent and disciplined. They are, therefore, atypical 21st-century Americans. They grew up in the 1930s, ‘40s, and ‘50s. They are Old School. They are not “cool” or trendy; if they were, I would have known I had walked into the wrong room.The occasion was a reunion of people who attended schools in the neighborhood in south St. Louis where my father lived as a boy. He organized the first such reunion in 1988. One man was so grateful for the reunions that he sent my father a four-page handwritten letter describing his memories of schoolmates in the 1920s.
Despite establishment media hype predicting a repeat of the violence at the 1968 Democratic convention, the anti-NATO protests in Chicago have so far been largely non-violent.
Chicago cops tried to create a riot but not much came of it.
As of Sunday, a mere 45 protesters were arrested. “No details on the arrests were immediately available, but it appeared from the clashes that played out in front of television cameras that many of those arrested were taken into custody after refusing a police order to disperse,” the AP reports.
Chicago and the federal government squandered millions of tax payer dollars on a not-so secret “command center” to keep a watchful electronic eye on Americans exercising the First Amendment. The proudly advertised purpose of the high-tech fusion center was to protect “foreign ministers” who arrived to plot future NATO conquests and war crimes. Of course, these bureaucrats were never really in danger.
Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel’s government worked with the Secret Service to turn downtown Chicago into a ghost town and deny workers and small businesses income. Eight foot tall “security fencing” created a declared “security perimeter” around downtown, Grant Park, and McCormick Place where the NATO war council convened.
April 19, 2012
April 19, 1775, should be regarded as important a date to Americans as July 4, 1776. It’s a shame that we don’t celebrate it as enthusiastically as we do Independence Day. It’s even more shameful that many Americans don’t even remember what happened on this day back in 1775. For the record, historians call this day, “Patriot’s Day.” More specifically, it was the day that the shot was fired that was heard ’round the world. It was the day America’s War for Independence began.
Being warned of approaching British troops by Dr. James Warren, Pastor Jonas Clark and his male congregants of the Church of Lexington (numbering 60-70) were the ones that stood with their muskets in front of the Crown’s troops (numbering over 800), who were on orders to seize a cache of arms which were stored at Concord and to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock (who were known to be in the area, and who had actually taken refuge in Pastor Clark’s home).
Residents and police officers in the aptly named town of Baraboo, Wisconsin have reported hearing weird booming noises accompanied by bright flashes of light, paralleling the experiences of people in the town of Clintonville 130 miles to the north.
Another Wisconsin Town Reports Strange Booms, Flashes of Light 040412boom1
Authorities are baffled at the weird phenomena, and have ruled out lightning strikes or transformer blowouts as explanations for what people are witnessing.
Residents started reporting the booms in the early hours of Sunday morning at 1am, with posters on the town’s public service Facebook page also saying they heard the same thing, including strange bright flashes of light that preceded the booms.
A Baraboo police officer noted in his report, “I observed a large flash of light followed by a ‘boom,’” I advised dispatch of this information and my belief that it was possibly a transformer.”
45 minutes later, a deluge of reports then flooded in from residents across the city about a second flash followed by a huge boom.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Stormy weather was also ruled out as a potential explanation. “There doesn’t appear to have been any t-storms in that area Sunday morning,” said Ed Townsend, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service’s Sullivan office. “I can’t think of anything else (weather-related) that would lead to a flash.”
Strange bright flashes of light…..

USGS says 1.5 earthquake hit town on Tuesday, but reports of booms came in over 24 hours beforehand
City officials claim the mystery of the Clintonville booms is solved with the US Geological Survey’s announcement that the town experienced a series of mini-earthquakes, but residents remain skeptical and probably with good reason – the 1.5 magnitude earthquake occurred over 24 hours after reports of the booms first started to flood in, noises which were also heard in a town 80 miles away.
The saga which has captured national attention began on Sunday night, when police received a deluge of reports about strange booming noises that were described as sounding like underground fireworks, thunder, or someone slamming a heavy door.
For the subsequent four nights the booms continued to be reported, albeit to a lesser extent, prompting a town hall meeting and a promise by local officials to find the cause of the strange noises.
The USGS subsequently announced that Clintonville had been hit by a 1.5 magnitude mini-earthquake on Tuesday at 12:15 a.m, in addition to a subsequent swarm of small earthquakes. The earthquake was not initially detected by the USGS and was only discovered after reports of mysterious booms in Clintonville had attracted national media coverage.
“Clintonville City Administrator Lisa Kuss told the community Thursday “the mystery is solved.” She says the rumbling can be explained by the micro earthquake that struck earlier this week,” reports Fox 11.
However, residents first heard the strange booms on Sunday night, over 24 hours before the first 1.5 earthquake struck.
In addition, the fact that the booms were also experienced 80 miles away by residents of Montello is inconsistent with the mini-quake explanation. Even people relatively close to the epicenter of such a minor earthquake would not feel it in most places, never mind anyone located over 120 kilometers away.
Residents 80 miles away report strange earth tremors
Mysterious booms that have rocked the town of Clintonville, Wisconsin have spread to another town 80 miles away. Police in Montello received reports of similar earth tremors at 5:30am this morning.
“They checked to see if anyone was drilling or doing underground work but came back empty handed,” reports NBC 26.
“Residents from Montello say they’re not crazy! In fact, they didn’t even hear about what’s going on in Clintonville until after they started doing some research online.”
The story of the mysterious booms has now gone viral and is getting nationwide coverage. In contrast to the “strange sounds” phenomenon which swept the Internet earlier this year, which was characterized by recordings of loud trumpet sounds made by breathless You Tube videographers, events in Wisconsin are considerably more fact-based.
Indeed, concern over the booms prompted a town hall public meeting last night in Clintonville and a promise to bring in sophisticated seismic technology to try and locate the epicenter of the noise.
Although Wednesday night was quieter in comparison to previous nights in Clintonville, police did receive a handful of reports of more booms and local reporters also heard the strange noise again at around 5am.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
The most active night was Sunday, when police received over a hundred calls from concerned residents who felt their houses shake as a result of the boom.
Explanations for the source of the booms have varied, with residents speculating that the noises could be caused by secret underground military experiments, heavy construction, explosives used in mining, or even clandestine geoengineering projects focused around CO2 sequestration, which involves pumping CO2 into deep underground reservoirs and has been linked with man-made earthquakes.
The military has denied that it is responsible for the booms, but would not be expected to claim responsibility if it was conducting secret activities.
As Alex Jones demonstrates in the following video, the state has gone overboard in its effort to regulate, control, and revenue-generate from all aspects of public and private life.
Alex uses a private pier in Panama Beach, Florida, as an example of the absurdity of the nanny state – the pier has footsteps painted on its boardwalk instructing people how they are expected to walk on a narrow, restricted area reaching out into the Gulf of Mexico.
It may seem petty, but the boardwalk is but another example of how we are increasingly herded about like cattle, often by storm troopers armed to the teeth with the latest military technology. Get out of line and you might receive the human equivalent of a cattle prod – a taser wielded by “peace officer” dressed in a black paramilitary uniform.
Examples of the coercive and often violent police state are legion. In the past week, a father was arrested and slapped in cuffs because his daughter drew a picture of a toy gun in school.
Earlier this year, a child playing tag on a school playground was accused of sexual assault and a sexual battery charge was placed on his permanent school record, thus almost certainly making sure he will be under the control freak microscope of the state for the remainder of his life.
Signs that nearly everything is illegal abound. An article posted on Infowars.com today runs through a short list of things that will get you in hot water with the law – from selling herbal remedies to children offering lemonade and Girl Scout cookies at roadside stands. Just about anything the state can regulate and tax is illegal without their permission, filling out applications in triplicate and forking over various fees and taxes.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
All levels of government partake in the unwarranted intrusion into the private affairs of Americans – from local and state government to the feds. In 2009, for instance, the federal government had nothing better to do than shake down garage sales under the flimsy pretext that they were protecting American consumers from dangerous and defective products.
It is now a crime punishable by summary execution to non-violently refuse to cooperate with police and other officials of the state, as a 54-year old Sunday school teacher recently learned in the moments before she was murdered by Officer Friendly for refusing to roll down her car window.
Not only is walking dangerous and possibly illegal, breathing may soon be as well. Increasingly, all activity related to the production of carbon dioxide – including breathing – is being looked at as a way for the state to revenue fleece the masses under the pretext of protecting us from our own foolish behavior.
“Right now, eight million people are walking around on the streets of New York City heedlessly inhaling precious oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide, treating the skies over their fair city ‘like a municipal dump, depositing carbon dioxide free.’ Shouldn’t they be forced to pay for the ‘privilege,’ too?” John Perna mocked a New York Times op-ed back in 2007 before the theory of man-made global warming was unmasked as a especially pernicious ruse designed to force you to pay carbon taxes.
Officialdom at all levels of government is not concerned about supposed carbon crimes against the planet or defective baby toys swapped at garage sales. It is simply looking for additional creative ways to confiscate more and more wealth from the producers in society. It is also interested in imposing its control freak mandates on all human activity.

Sunday, February 19, 2012Michelle Obama and her two daughters off skiing in Colorado this long President Day weekend has nothing to do with health and fresh air, nor even to show sports prowess on the slopes.The Colorado ski trip is just another demoralizing campaign tactic.You’re at home hoping homemade biscuits will stretch the Sunday’s roast chicken dinner to feed visiting relatives while the exhilaration of powdered snow is painting Happy Faces on the women in Obama’s life.
Women is what Obama wants you to think this presidential campaign is all about.All communication from the Obama regime portrays Republicans as deliberately forcing women back to the Beaver Cleavers of the 1950s when the male-inspired dictate of the day ostensibly was: “No birth control for you, Miss Alice.”All male chauvinist pigs are Republican according to the Democrats’ latest smear campaign.Gluttony is a dominating factor in all things Obama.From his introduction from DNC fake Greek columns, Obama and later his unelected hippy czars made the 40%-plus of people who support the man whose main mission is the Fundamental Transformation of America, gluttons for punishment.
“This is what liberalism looks like. This is what the progressive state does.
It tries to break all the institutions of civil society, all the institutions that mediate between the individual and the state.
They have to break them to the saddle of the state.”
He went on to say: “The Catholic bishops, it serves them…..
In Catholic churches across the country, parishioners were read letters from the pulpit this weekend from bishops in their diocese about the mandate from the Department of Health and Human Services giving Catholics a year before they’ll be required to start violating their consciences on insurance coverage for contraception, sterilization, and abortifacient drugs. But not in the Army.
A statement released this afternoon — which happens to be the 67th anniversary of the sinking of the USS Dorchester, on which four chaplains lost their lives – from the Archdiocese for Military Services explains:
The agency announced Thursday that it had taken control of the domain names of 307 websites as part of “Operation Fake Sweep”. Most of the websites in question were said to be illegally selling and distributing counterfeit sporting merchandise.
Israel and the United States have postponed a massive joint defense exercise, which was expected to be carried out in the coming weeks, in order to avoid an escalation with Iran, Channel 2 reported on Sunday.
According to an Israeli defense official, Washington wants to avoid causing further tensions in the region, especially in light of the sensitive situation that has been generated after various reports in the international media that the U.S. and Israel are preparing to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities.
The drill, codenamed Austere Challenge 12, was supposed to simulate the missiles fired by Iran or other antagonistic states toward Israel. Defense officials told Channel 2 on Sunday that the drill is now scheduled to take place in the summer.
Both Israeli and U.S. officials said the exercise would be the largest-ever joint drill by the two countries, involving thousands of U.S. soldiers.
But the IDF said the drill was planned long ago and is not tied to recent events. The drill “is not in response to any real-world event,” the IDF wrote in a statement last week.

At a campaign event that drew more than 300 people here late Sunday afternoon, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) defended his Israel policy in response to a question from an undecided voter, an answer that included, in part, the suggestion that Israel “should be the Hong Kong of the Middle East.”
“I would want to maintain very close relations with Israel,” Paul said. “I’d want to be a good friend of Israel. And I also want to respect them in many ways that I do not think the United States should undermine their sovereignty in any way.”
He went on to defend his position that the United States should not provide foreign aid to Israel and should not “tell them what to do.”
“If they want to have a peace treaty with their neighbors and they think they can work it out, they shouldn’t have to ask us for permission,” Paul said. “They shouldn’t have to ask us permission to defend their borders. That should be their business. But also, I do not believe that I should take money from anybody here and send money to Israel.”
He then rounded out his answer with the Hong Kong comparison. “We should be friends,” he said. “We should trade with them. I would encourage them to become the Hong Kong of the Middle East, or something like that. You know, have a really affluent society.”
I’ve begun noticing a lot more older cars on the road. And they are not headed to an antique car show, either.
Almost every day, on my way into town, I pass a guy driving a mid-70?s era Pontiac Sunbird. Then there’s the other guy with the orange and brown Pinto. I see him at least once a week. And lately, I’m encountering Old Beetles seemingly all the time. There was a bright yellow one pulling into Starbucks just this past Sunday; a silver one (a Super Beetle) was at the gym today.
I take it as a sign. A good sign.
People are beginning to revolt. No, wait. Revolt is not the right word. People are opting out.
Own an old car – and by “old” I mean something that doesn’t have a computer, which means built before about 1981, the first year computer controls became common – and you do an end-run around Big Brother. Or at least, you run between his legs and make good your escape before he can grab you.

Rick Perry Heckled Over Gays In Military Campaign Ad
By Paul West December 11, 2011 Reporting from Ames, Iowa— Rick Perry took another shot at Mitt Romney’s offer of a $10,000 bet, but the Texas governor found himself under fire himself Sunday, heckled at a campaign stop over anti-gay bias, including by a man identifying himself as a Marine veteran from the Iraq war.
The heckling followed Perry’s brief remarks to Iowa voters at a coffee shop in downtown Ames.
“Why are you demonizing gay and lesbian people?” shouted one heckler.
“Why can’t gays compete in the military?” chimed in Jason Arment, 24, an English major at nearby Iowa State University. Arment, of Grimes, Iowa, who said he was straight, said he served with the Marines in Iraq in 2007 and 2008,

GOTHENBURG, Sweden — An unidentified man burst into flames while waiting outside a train station in Sweden, leaving police flummoxed, the Göteborgs-Posten reported.
“He just stood there burning outside the shop,” a witness told the paper. “After a while he started screaming. There were a few people about but they just watched him. I ran up to him, tore my coat off and managed to put the fire out together with another guy.”
Marxist author, professor, and civil rights activist Cornel West was arrested Sunday, along with 18 others, for protesting on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court, as part of a October 2011 Stop the Machine demonstration. During the protest, Mr. West denounced “corporate greed” and the “prison industrial complex.” And then, he decided to pull Martin Luther King Jr. into his deranged dialogue.
“We will not allow this day of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial to go without somebody going to jail,” West emphatically proclaimed, right before being arrested.
Earlier in the day, he explained his differences with the President:
It’s not personal … Anytime I look at a president, I don’t care what color he is. I am excited to have a black president because white supremacy is real and it needs to be shattered. Every president needs to deal with the permanent government of the country, and the permanent government of the country is Wall Street oligarchs and corporate plutocrats and the questions becomes what is the relationship between that president and Wall Street.
I can’t help but point this out: West says he is colorblind when it comes to viewing a president, that he completely disregards a president’s skin color. But in the very next sentence he says, “I am excited to have a black president.” If you are going to make hypocritical remarks, at least don’t place the contrasting statements one right after the other.
On another note, I find it interesting how these people attempt to disguise their Marxist ideology by rebuking corporate greed and propagandizing America’s so-called devastatingly poor population (because fortunate for Africa and India, they don’t have to deal with hunger and social injustice). I would hope the American people can see through such nonsense.

A petition letter to county sheriffs referenced here and posted on Scribd is now accompanied by a complete list of county sheriffs‘ offices in every state. There are no addresses for the state of Connecticut because there are no county sheriffs there.
Other press releases and articles can be found here.
On September 26, 2011, a county sheriff who had been contacted about the Obama eligibility question responded:
I could be wrong but this thing has been vetted 25 ways to Sunday by thousands of people and sources. I am all for unveiling the facts…especially as relate to this disaster of a President; however, unless you guys know something right now that I don’t, I am not going to invest resources and time into what I believe has been drilled as deeply as possible.
A citizen letter was then sent to the sheriff’s office:
With all due respect:
I won’t belabor all of the evidence and arguments here, but you have the authority and legal right to investigate and obtain information that the average citizen does not. We rely upon you and your peers; our elected public servants to do your job, uphold your Oath, protect the people and our Constitution and rule of law. You have powers vested in you and we expect you to use them to the full extent.
Contrary to your statement; WE the People have been violated ’25 Ways to Sunday’ with the Obama fraud and in so many other ways…including the financial fraud we are all harmed by. My life has been literally destroyed by criminals and their cronies in government…and I could probably count at least ’25 Ways to Sunday’ by which my personal destruction was wrought………….
Ed Henry Published September 25, 2011
SAN JOSE, Calif. – As he kicked off a three-day swing through the West aimed in part at firing up his liberal base and raking in millions of dollars for his 2012 re-election campaign, President Obama claimed his first term has been a success even as he urged supporters for the second straight day to “shake off” their frustrations in order to help give him a second term in office.
“I need you guys to shake off any doldrums,” Obama said Sunday at the second of two fundraisers in Seattle before jetting here to San Jose for two more fundraisers. “I need you to decide right here and right now, talk to your friends and neighbors and co-workers and tell them, ‘You know what? We’re not finished yet.’”
Obama struck a similar tone in rallying liberal supporters on Saturday night in Washington, DC, when he spoke at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation‘s Annual Phoenix Awards dinner before heading out West on Sunday. “I expect all of you to march with me and press on,” Obama said to applause. “Take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on.” In Seattle on Sunday, Obama was just as aggressive in asserting his first term has been successful as he claimed that he has accomplished the vast majority of what he wanted to get done.
“We’re just starting off here, we’ve got 14 months,” Obama said about his first term in office, urging supporters to help spread the message that it’s not a failure he’s only gotten 80 percent of what he wants done so far.
