Tyranny Watch: Krauthammer Raps Obama for Siding With Honduras Dictator-Chavez Wannabe -- Video

Charles Krauthammer offers a lesson in liberty to Obama:

The president has a knack for getting all of these big decisions wrong. . . . A rule of thumb here is whenever you find yourself on the side of Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, and the Castro twins, you ought to reexamine your assumptions.

This YouTube video features Krauthammer, Bret Baier and gang on Fox News.

Pastor Leader Shouts "Fire!" in Crowded Church

Not a big fan of tyranny, Dave Welch, founder and director of the U.S. Pastor Council, hopes to get pastors and churches off their hands, out of their pews, and into the culture.

In "Pastor: If Not You, Who?," he writes: 

Until a remnant of at least 10 to 20 percent of Bible-believing pastors and churches step up to the plate and start raising up and sending out godly leaders into civil ministry, we will be governed by tyrants or self-serving leaders.  

Good for him. After all, the Leader of the Resistance sends his fighters out into and across the world (Acts 1:8, "to the ends of the earth"), not into privatized prayer closets for ever and ever. Nor into a kind of unholy and ingrown isolation behind the safe, ghettoized walls of a church, whether big or small, known or unknown.

Human beings who take seriously their call to liberating community with their true Creator and fellow creatures made in His image (i.e., "Love thy neighbor") are the last thing self-serving politicians "here to help," constitution-haters, dictators, and hardline secularists want to see walking the streets. 

A Heaven-sent "Fire in the church!" could be a sign of good things on the way.

David Limbaugh Commits Treason

How so? By maintaining a critical distance vis-a-vis the currently politically acceptable cult otherwise known as global warming.

Before you, dear reader, revert to a reactionary past when free people, free-thinkers, and questioning beings did that sort of thing on a regular basis, just look at Mr. Limbaugh's most recent column. The title says it all: "The Censorious Left's Global Warming Denier Deniers."

Very inconvenient. As if science could be politicized. 

Read his column here. At your own risk.

What Coup? Fighting Tyranny and Protecting Liberty in Honduras

That's how Burwell Stark at American Thinker sees last Sunday's "coup" in Honduras: 

Like John Locke and the American founding fathers, the Honduran Congress and Supreme Court realized that the threat of tyranny requires an immediate and decisive response. We should be glad they acted before Honduras fell to the Bolivarian Revolution and went the way of Venezuela.

Meanwhile, in the not-glad camp are dictator of Venezuela Hugo Chavez and socialist man in charge in the U.S. Barack Obama, a.k.a. "U.S. President."

"Remember the good old days -- when dissent was patriotic?," writes Mark Finkelstein of Newsbusters.  Well, "Fuggedaboutit.  Dissent isn't merely unpatriotic now.  It's downright treasonous.  Just ask Paul Krugman" over at the NYT.

"If, like virtually all House Republicans and a handful of Dems," Finkelstein continues, "you don't agree with the likes of Henry Waxman on the need to take radical measures on the climate, you're guilty of . . . 'a form of treason.' Treason against the planet, to be precise."

Resistance Watch: Reid Confesses Didn't Have "Lot of Time" to Read Stimulus Bill

Moreover, the Democratic Senate Majority Leader "will not commit to giving senators and the public a full week to read and review the final version of a health-care reform bill before he holds a final vote on it," reports CNSNews.com

This is arbitrary government rammed down our throats. This, in effect, is legislation without representation. If our elected "leaders" don't have the time to read legislation imposed upon the people of this nation, perhaps we the people will not have time to obey its unread demands upon our daily lives. 

This hubris at the heart of the Washington-centric establishment is beneath the dignity of a free people created in the image of God and endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights.

Perhaps we need a new set of Founders to restore the foundations of this nation, to put a halt to the abridgements of freedom enacted daily upon us by an oppressive federal establishment, and to provide a sure hope for human dignity in a land growing increasingly disturbed by the darkness of secularism.

Social Conservatives Falling Down

From the Washington Times:

Social conservatives, the once-powerful force that focused the Republican agenda on moral virtue and family values, have suffered a diminished brand on the national political landscape as a steady stream of their icons have fallen prey to the vices they once preached against.

Extramarital affairs, gambling, alcohol abuse, prostitution and sexual pursuit of minors have taken a toll on the GOP.

July 4th Watch: Birth of Jesus Linked to Birth of America?

Of course not, one might feel, if you simply take for granted Barack Obama's recent factually challenged attacks on the Christian heritage and founding of the United States.

Then, again, free-thinking, open-minded Americans may appreciate the following July 4th corrective to the record by John Quincy Adams, who served as the sixth president of the United States:

Why is it that, next to the birth day of the Savior of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? . . . Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the corner stone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?

After Global Warming

"The house of cards that is the science behind 'climate change' is collapsing at exactly the same time it is being imposed by the Obama administration and Congress as an ideological 'truth'," writes Larrey Anderson at American Thinker. "America is facing the perfect storm of an imploding scientific theory that will be enforced by the rule of law."

"Make no mistake," Anderson continues, "the bid bad wolf of truth is about to blow the straw house of global warming to bits. This is why there was a sudden shift, in the last nine months, from the use of 'man made global warming' to 'climate change' by the proponents of the theory."

Age of Twitter v. Tyranny

As an "army of Davids takes on an Ayatollah Goliath" in Iran, Arnaud de Borchgrave writes at the Washington Times:

Until recently, a twitter was simply a bird making high-pitched mating calls. Now Twitter is in the vanguard of an army of cybernauts whose speedy steeds are propelling both democratic and authoritarian governments through a period of social change more profound than anything we have experienced in 5,000 years of recorded history. . . .

A Boston Globe cartoon shows the turbaned, white bearded supreme leader on his balcony ordering an acolyte to expel all the foreign correspondents reporting on the popular uprising in the streets below. But, responds the acolyte throwing up his arms, "they're all correspondents."

In the street below, thousands of demonstrators turned instant journalists are firing their electronic weapons, twittering away the standards of foreign reporting, tweeting the future of journalism and tweaking history. Online screams from men and women falling under the rubber truncheons were heard around the world.

CNN Video: "Death of Neda" Becomes Symbol of Iranian Protests

This chilling video from Iran demonstrates something about the price of freedom, something about the high personal cost of standing up to government tyranny.

Our Founders understood something about this. Do we here at home in the U.S.?

Or have secularized Americans and "Christian" presidents such as Barack Hussein Obama forgotten about unalienable rights endowed by the Creator? Those real human rights, of course, violate the "separation of church and state" written into the "living" U.S. Constitution by the likes of the ACLU.

If that rewrite of history and the Constitution stands, then it may be Tehran today, but America tomorrow, for ideas have consequences. And bad ideas can have evil consequences.

If we despise the Founding Vision -- as elites and secularists preach and teach in Washington, Hollywood, Media, and academia -- one wonders on what basis American individuals and families can really hope to maintain their freedom and dignity.

If Sam Adams Had a Bulldozer

Brothers of "GM-abandoned" and about-to-be-plowed-under Flint, Michigan -- Can you spare a bulldozer for your progressive federal comrades?

As J. Robert Smith writes at American Thinker:

Progress to a Progressive, like President Obama, has come to mean something entirely different these days. It's now about bulldozing blighted areas of cities rather than revitalizing them. It's actually a big white flag raised over the bloated corpse of liberal tax, regulation and urban policies.

It's called "Shrink to Survive." The Left is billing the failure and decline of town and cities, principally in the Northeast and Rust Belt, as inevitable. Nothing can be done to reverse the trend, they say, so go with it. Manage it smartly. And, oh, by the way, don't blame us.

Likely, more than a few emperors and senators said the same thing as ancient Rome crumbled.

As long as bulldozers and "Shrink to Survive" are on the table, let's brainstorm outside the federal box. Let's re-imagine the possibility of a brighter, more-humane destiny. 

Expand your mind: Might there be better candidates for an extreme makeover if constitutionally based freedom and dignity in America are to make it through the 21st century?

Further expand your mind: Imagine if the signers of the Declaration of Independence had bulldozers. Imagine the likes of Sam Adams, John Hancock, Ben Franklin, and John Witherspoon alive today, revved up and ready to go. One wonders where they would go. 

I have two hunches.

Hunch No. 1: Flint, Michigan, would not be at the top of the list. 

Hunch No. 2: When the dust finally clears, we'd be more free than we were before.

You'd hear singing by day rather than screams in the night.

Beck and Levin 1 and 2 at Amazon

Collaborationist Watch: Major Papers Expunge Obama Healthcare Comment

Here is a quote from Barack Obama that did not appear in news coverage from the Washington Post, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times, as reported by Terry Jeffrey at CNSNews.com:

I'll be honest, there are countries where a single-payer system works pretty well.

One wonders why these famed newspapers failed to include the Obama quote.

Here's a shot in the dark: Perhaps if readers "informed" by those papers read the quote, they might consider the possibility that Obama might try to impose here in the U.S. a nationalized, socialist single-payer healthcare system, since, after all, in all honesty, as the Democratic president has stated, "There are countries where a single-payer system works pretty well."

Ed Sullivan vs. David Letterman

"Our mission statement," says FireDavidLetterman.com, is "David Letterman must be held accountable for his disgraceful statements." As part of this effort, the website is announcing a rally planned for 4:30 p.m. tomorrow (Tues.) at The Ed Sullivan Theater, 1697 Broadway, New York City.

Speaking of Ed Sullivan, he always presented himself in a dignified manner. His variety show had class and treated its audience with respect.

The same cannot be said of Mr. Letterman and the CBS "Late Show," as is indicated by the man's crude sex jokes attacking Sarah Palin and her family. Instead, the CBS star appears to operate in a different, less-enlightened moral universe from that of Ed Sullivan.

That's bad for entertainment, the Letterman audience, and David Letterman himself (not to mention his family). He might want to look in the mirror and ask a few heartfelt questions.

That is not meant as a putdown. It's something every human being with a conscience has to do from time to time. Otherwise you drift. Otherwise 30 years later you see a face in the mirror you no longer recognize.

This phenomenon is inclusive: It happens to entertainers, pastors, politicians, scientists, activists, artists, authors, and hard-charging ministry leaders.

Conspiracy Watch: Argentine Glacier Advances Despite Global Warming

It's becoming increasingly clear that the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy to resist science, destroy humanity, and disrepect Al Gore has gone intercontinental.

AP has the latest on a rebellious ice mass

Argentina's Perito Moreno glacier is one of only a few ice fields worldwide that have withstood rising global temperatures.

Nourished by Andean snowmelt, the glacier constantly grows even as it spawns icebergs the size of apartment buildings into a frigid lake, maintaining a nearly perfect equilibrium since measurements began more than a century ago.

"We're not sure why this happens," said Andres Rivera, a glacialist with the Center for Scientific Studies in Valdivia, Chile. "But not all glaciers respond equally to climate change."

Comedy Has Consequences: Still Open Season on Sarah Palin

David Letterman's below-the-belt sex-joke shots at Palin and her family are cheap and demeaning and reflect rather poorly on him as an increasingly unfunny and uninteresting entertainer. 

But it also speaks volumes about the inherent inhumanity at the heart of materialistic secularist thought as it impacts popular culture. There is a way up from that, but it requires an embrace of that which secularists despise: The high view of the individual person reflected in the Declaration of Independence and based in the objective and factual reality of human beings as having been created in the image of a rational, personal, knowable, and verifable God.

Palin "wasted no time unloading both barrels at the hoary Letterman for his lurid jabs," writes J. Robert Smith at American Thinker. "The time has come for conservatives to start fighting back. Governor Palin is showing the way."

Dictatorship Watch: Holocaust Museum Shooter a Christian-Hating Socialist

Racists, socialists, Marxists, and fascists red and yellow, black and white may want to hold onto their seats and secure their pews.

Writing at Frontpage magazine, Ben Johnson makes the case that "longtime neo-Nazi" James Wenneker Von Brunn "was . . . not . . .     a . . . conservative."

Moreover, writes Johnson, the murder suspect "denounced the Christian faith as a dastardly Jewish conspiracy" and as a "'HOAX' invented by the Apostle Paul to 'DESTROY ROMAN CULTURE' from within by undermining its pagan virility." (Note: The CAPS above, as Johnson points out, "appear in the original.")

One does not mean to be redundant, but the stereotype-challenging information Johnson provides may also upset members of a) the Collaborationist Press and b) the Obama administration.

Why? Because, sadly and tyrannically, many of these folks are also "Christian-Haters." 

They constitute an elitist, secularist axis of those who despise -- in contradistinction to the genius of the Founding Fathers and the Founding Vision -- the humane, liberating, and dictatorship-challenging application of Creator-rooted information and thoughtforms to the public square.

Their way, including the Obama way, is the end of America the free.

The end of their way opens the door to humanity and dignity under God again. That's what the Declaration and Constitution are all about.

According to the evidence, Von Brunn hates this. As does the Washington-Centric establishment.

Nationwide attention about President Obama's lack of producing a long-form birth certificate proving his eligibility for office got a boost today when top-rated radio host Rush Limbaugh joked about the subject in comparing Obama to God.

Asking rhetorically what God has in common with Obama, Limbaugh said, "Neither has a birth certificate."

"How do they differ?" Limbaugh continued. "God does not think he's Obama. And there's another difference. Liberals love Obama."

Jon Voight Calls for Resistance to "Obama Oppression"

In an stirring speech at the 2009 GOP Senate-House Dinner Monday night, actor Jon Voight takes on the Democrats, Obama, and even Oprah. Will Hollywood ever recover?

But here's the more important question: Will the Republican Party move forward not just on the basis of policy wonkism, and not just on the basis of opposition to Obama, but on the basis of the genius of the Founding Vision and Mission Statement set forth in the Declaration of Independence?

Anything less is doomed to failure.

As the Founders understood, declared, lived, and struggled, only a republic poised in the content of liberty rooted in a living and knowable Creator will have the resources needed to break free of state tyranny, ideological oppression, and false prophets disguised as U.S. presidents.

This is the direction of Mark Levin's terrific book Liberty and Tyranny, after which reading all patriots would do well to read (or view the DVD) Francis Schaeffer's A Christian Manifesto.

"We, and we alone," the Oscar-winning actor said, "are the right frame of mind to free this nation from this Obama oppression."

Voight's "analysis of how President Obama got elected will eventually be the accepted truth once sober and dispassionate journalists reenter the mainstream media," says Andrew Breitbart at Big Hollywood.

Pro-Life "Smear" Suspected in DOJ Tiller Probe

Pro-Life leader Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America "is questioning the motive behind the Justice Department's announcement of a probe to determine if others were involved in the murder of abortionist George Tiller," reports OneNewsNow.

"The Department of Justice may be trying to smear pro-lifers," says Wright, "as if we all belong in the same camp, as if we all advocate violence, when it's [actually] just the opposite."

Indeed. As the civilized world knows, "Pro-Choice" Fascism ("Abortion Macht Frei!") preaches and practices inhumane violence upon innocent individuals created in the image of God on a daily basis.

Aborcentration centers (aka "clinics") flood America with blood and blood money to enrich child-killers such as Herr Tiller & Co. on a daily basis.

Yep -- those barbarians who question, who stand at the philosophic center of the American Experiment in humane liberty, and who want to end the American Holocaust, need to be watched.

"Your papers!" 

No doubt, courageous individuals such as Wendy Wright may be near the top of "Christian" Barack Hussein Obama's enemies list.

Video Flashback: Reagan at Normandy

"Here in Normandy the rescue began. Here the Allies stood and fought against tyranny . . ." In this speech, U.S. President Ronald Reagan marks the 40th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944.

Question the Collaborationist Media

CBS apparently thinks it's OK to question God but not to question Obama. Joseph Farah of WND wonders what the collaborationist media is up to. Actually, the human thing to do, as well as the Biblical and journalistic thing to do, is to "test everything."

But what are the "Collaborationist Media"? As I noted in this space June 3, Collaborationist Media are "organs of ideology and propaganda in the service of forces at odds with the DNA of the American Experiment in liberty."

The Collaborationist Press is philosophically challenged. It has:

Forgotten that freedom does not grow on trees or crawl out of the ocean. [It has rejected in principle] the Founders' hard-won understanding that human dignity and freedom are rooted in a real and knowable Creator. His structured creation -- which we recognize as the objective cosmos -- is what makes possible the rational investigation and empirical discovery of both science and legitimate news gathering in the first place. It also makes possible the separation of a religiously privatized "faith" (secular or otherwise) from the concrete and epistemologically assured information, truth content, and authenticity available in the Judeo-Christian worldview. 

The Collaborationist Press has rejected that worldview which gives an adequate basis for "fair and balanced" reporting. It is of little surprise, therefore, that so many journalists now find themselves goosestep-slobbering more and more deeply into political passions, relativistic subjectivities, group think that would make cult members blush, and obedience to correlations of raw power at particular moments in history. 

This is the true crisis in journalism today. What is needed to counter this is not a journalism passionately devoted to "conservatism" or some other "ism." What is needed is a journalism passionately committed to objective truth. "Vichy" journalism in Nazi-occupied France was a contradiction in terms in WWII Europe, and it is a contradiction in terms in America today. A journalism of resistance rooted in truth will win the hearts of Americans and help set us free again.

Supremacist Watch: Soto-Obama-Mayor

Bob Tyrrell writes on the flawed mindset of Barack Obama and Sonia Sotomayor:

What kind of a society have we arrived at through Judge Sotomayor's reasoning? It is a society in which some groups are superior to others, namely, wise Latinas are superior to the rest of us. That is not what I call progress over intolerance, bigotry, or, for that matter, stupidity.

Nonetheless, this is the mindset of Liberals who hold sway at the nation's law schools. Professor Barack Obama had the same point of view when he taught at the University of Chicago Law School. . . .

The problem with their position is that it assumes we are all prisoners of our experience, except for Sotomayor and Obama who have somehow transcended their experience.

The rest of us cannot think objectively.

In fact, we cannot read the law or the Constitution unimpeded by our backgrounds.

Yet Sotomayor and Obama are here to guide and to govern.

At some point, perhaps, we will get over this middle class idea of holding elections. Or maybe Sotomayor and Obama will simply suspend them. They seem to know what is best.

Collaborationist Media Spike Muslim Convert's Murder of U.S. Soldier

From Brent Baker at Newsbusters:

The networks, which saw the apparently politically-motivated murder of a Kansas doctor who performed late term abortions as a major story, haven't been so interested in a Muslim convert who specifically targeted and shot two Army privates outside a Little Rock recruiting office, killing one, William Long. None mentioned it on Monday night and on Tuesday evening, as all aired follow-up pieces on Dr. George Tiller, only NBC gave it a few seconds.

Since the "mainstream" media have taken sides in the culture wars, and since the side they have taken rejects the principles upon which this nation is founded, perhaps it is time to identify them for what they truly are: The Collaborationist Press -- that is, organs of ideology and propaganda in the service of forces at odds with the DNA of the American Experiment in liberty.

As coverage of the ongoing abortion tragedy demonstrates (e.g., the killing of abortionist George Tiller), the "pro-choice" Collaborationist Press rejects the Founders' insistence on unalienable rights, including the unalienable right to life, including the right to life of preborn American citizens (and preborn journalists). Rejecting the only adequate basis for authentic human freedom, the Collaborationist Press devolves into mouthpieces for tyranny (however well motivated, or not-so-well motivated, individual reporters may be).  

Far less interesting to the Collaborationist Media, therefore, is the killing of U.S. Army private William Long in Little Rock, in the state of a president who famously "loathed" the military. No human institution is perfect, but the U.S. military has been a force for genuine goodness in the world, fighting unto victory the evils of fascism in Europe and Japan during WWII, and being the ready backbone of liberty in the Cold War, helping to ensure the downfall of the class-warfare slave state formerly known as the U.S.S.R.

Of course there have been mistakes. But when U.S. soliders break the law, we've had a system of justice and morality in the United States -- rooted ultimately the self-same Creator who endows every human being with unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness -- upon which to bring those soliders to justice. Again, not perfection, but certainly a terrific and humane advance in the struggle of human liberty against the forces of ideological terror and government tyranny. 

All of this is rejected in principle by a secularized press that has forgotten that freedom does not grow on trees or crawl out of the ocean. Rejected in principle is the Founders' hard-won understanding that human dignity and freedom are rooted in a real and knowable Creator. His structured creation -- which we recognize as the objective cosmos -- is what makes possible the rational investigation and empirical discovery of both science and legitimate news gathering in the first place. It also makes possible the separation of a religiously privatized "faith" (secular or otherwise) from the concrete and epistemologically assured information, truth content, and authenticity available in the Judeo-Christian worldview.

However, in somewhat less than infinite wisdom, the Collaborationist Press has rejected that worldview which gives an adequate basis for "fair and balanced" reporting. It is of little surprise, therefore, that so many journalists now find themselves goosestep-slobbering more and more deeply into political passions, relativistic subjectivities, group think that would make cult members blush, and obedience to correlations of raw power at particular moments in history. 

This is the true crisis in journalism today. What is needed to counter this is not a journalism passionately devoted to "conservatism" or some other "ism." What is needed is a journalism passionately committed to objective truth. "Vichy" journalism in Nazi-occupied France was a contradiction in terms in WWII Europe, and it is a contradiction in terms in America today. A journalism of resistance rooted in truth will win the hearts of Americans and help set us free again.

Making Racism Cool Again: Sotomayor "In and Out of Context"

Thomas Sowell explains:

In Washington, the clearer a statement is, the more certain it is to be followed by a "clarification" when people realize what was said.

The clearly racist comments made by Judge Sonia Sotomayor on the Berkeley campus in 2001 have forced the spinmasters to resort to their last-ditch excuse, that it was "taken out of context."
 
If that line is used during Judge Sotomayor's Senate confirmation hearings, someone should ask her to explain just what those words mean when taken in context.

Do Liberals Crave a Master?

Andrew Thomas writes at American Thinker:

Contemporary liberals, having abandoned the belief in God-given inalienable rights, masochistically crave a worldly master. This master is a sadistic god-substitute who will provide stern discipline needed to force economic equality and "fairness" by requiring painful sacrifices and bestowing government-created rights onto obedient and acquiescent groups of left-leaning masochists.

Journalists Who Don't Kiss Obama's Feet

"The White House press corps is now completely supine," writes James Lewis at American Thinker.

But Lewis has discovered signs of life across the Atlantic: "The journos of Britain show little repsect for American Presidents regardless or face, creed, or color. They laugh hysterically at all of them. Not that it takes much imagination."
