Jeb Bush 2016 Fail: Let 11 Million Illegals "Receive Earned Legal Status"

By Rick Pearcey • April 30, 2015, 01:28 PM

Susan Jones reports at CNSNews.com:

"Immigration is a key element of our country's success," Jeb Bush, a possible contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, told the National Christian Hispanic Leadership Conference in Houston on Wednesday.

An advocate of immigration reform, Bush said the 11 million people who are in the country illegally "should come out from the shadows and receive earned legal status."

He said the United States is the only country that "has the chance to become young and dynamic again," all because of immigration. "This is not the time to abandon something that makes us special and unique," he added.

Memo to Mr. Bush: Immigration is not "something that makes us special and unique."

Rather American specialness and uniqueness is due to everyday citizens -- whether immigrant citizens or not -- who embrace the constitutional and Declaration principles that constitute the enduring mainstream and defining ethos of American governance and civil society.

The Bushes, including Jeb, appear to be nice people. But for all their suits and ties and friendly public manner, they embrace real-world politics that is a not-nice form of governance. Rather than unity and diversity with unalienable rights sourced in the Creator (see the Declaration), they see the United States as a country run by elites who hold power and occupy Washington, D.C.

This is the opposite of what America is really all about. For this is an America of centralized government, a real-world monopoly of power that wars at every level against the freedom, dignity, security, and safety of the man or woman on the street.

Many people understand that monopolies are anathema in the area of business. Well, the monopoly of power centralized into Washington, D.C., is a million times worse.

A business cannot fine you, jail you, or kill you if you decide to take your patronage elsewhere. But governments can and do.

If you doubt this, read the history of the 20th century, with special attention to inhumanities of National Socialist Germany, the Soviet Union, and Communist China. And don't forget the millions of dead via the delegated authority by which a cruel U.S. government via "choice" even now allows the slaughter of preborn human beings. So much for the choices of the "least of these."

The Constitution and Declatration, by contrast, understand that legitimate power and authority in America is rooted in the people, spread across a diversity of forms of self-governance -- from the indvidual, to family, to community, to town, city, state, and so on.

The federal government has a role, and a proper one, but it is a carefully circumscribed role. That role is not defined as that of finding the smartest people and then trying to solve problems.

That understanding of one's role is common to any person in any job or walk of life who wants to do the right thing. Every parent, school board member, mayor, governor, or president ought to operate by that principle.

But do you understand what this means? It means that the principle of "solving problems" is not what defines a specific calling. It is a good and general rule that applies to all callings; but it tells you nothing about what specifically is my legitimate role in a particular job, office, or societal sphere.

The relevant question is: What is my particular job description as parent, as pastor, as professor, as judge, as president, and so on?

The U.S. president's job is not to "run America." No, a thousand times no. That is an expression of authoritarianism, no matter how nicely it is conveyed.

The U.S. president's job is to protect and defend the U.S Constitution, which was ratified to incarnate the principles of the Declaration of Independence. The point is to undercut would-be messiahs from Washington-on-high. These saviors -- whether Republican or Democrat -- do far too much damage.

To operate outside of this constitutional circle of understanding is to violate your presidential oath and, unavoidably, to court tyranny. Even if you are a nice guy, violating the presidential job description is an open door to tyranny.

In the liberating American ethos, there is no concept of a federal government with a blank check able to write for itself its own purchase on power.

In addition, to the degree that a political figure or arm of government operates outside of this mainstream of human liberty, to that degree one is an extremist against the freedom and the dignity of each man and woman. Clearly, this is not good, no matter how much you smile or even if you are married to a minority.

In contrast to Mr. Bush, the Declaration of Independence understands that what makes America "special and unique" is not that nice and smart people win elections, move to Washington, and then run the country.

Rather, the Declaration proclaims that all of us run the country, each in our own sphere of authority, upon the basis that every human being is "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights" and "that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Truly, this diversity is our strength.

Here are a couple of suggestions. Let millions who want to immigrate to American first understand and embrace the rules of human freedom and dignity that make America "special and unique." At a minimum, this requires a repudiation of the cheap patriotism of illegal immigration.

And to avoid the blind leading the blind into the ditch of authoritarianism and its attendant inhumanity, those who seek office in America should respect and apply the enduring rules of freedom. Tyrants at home and abroad should fear whoever is elected president of the United States.

"We Will Not Obey": Christian Leaders Threaten Civil Disobedience If Supreme Court Legalizes Counterfeit "Marriage"

By Rick Pearcey • April 29, 2015, 12:02 PM

Todd Starnes writes:

"We will not obey."

That’s the blunt warning a group of prominent religious leaders is sending to the Supreme Court of the United States as they consider same-sex marriage.

"We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross that line," read a document titled, Pledge in Solidarity to Defend Marriage. "We stand united together in defense of marriage. Make no mistake about our resolve."

"While there are many things we can endure, redefining marriage is so fundamental to the natural order and the common good that this is the line we must draw and one we cannot and will not cross," the pledge states.

"The signees are a who’s who of religious leaders including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, National Religious Broadcasters president Jerry Johnson, Pastor John Hagee, and Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse," Starnes writes.

"The pledge was co-drafted by Deacon Keith Fournier, a Catholic deacon, and Mat Staver, the founder of Liberty Counsel. Also involved in the document were Rick Scarborough, the president of Vision America Action and James Dobson, the founder of Family Talk Radio," according to Starnes.

Comment: The Supreme Court should know better than to try to force Americans to submit their social order to a counterfeit concept of marriage.

Just as a refusal to accept counterfeit currency is an act of intelligence and common decency, even so resistance to the imposition of counterfeit marriage is an act of intelligence and common decency.

Trying to wrap this counterfeit in emotional sloganeering about "equality," "rights," "fairness," and "discrimination" exposes the ultimate emptiness, fanaticism, desperation, ugliness, hatred, and fear of the counterfeiters.

Intelligence revolts. Freedom resists. Wholeness overcomes.

Ted Cruz Gets Specific on "Abolishing the IRS"

By Rick Pearcey • April 28, 2015, 11:57 AM

"Cruz said he envisions shifting the tracking and collection of federal taxes to 'some much smaller division' of the Treasury Department," the Washington Examiner reports. "The senator said that replacing the current, complex tax code with a simple flat tax would eliminate most of the work the IRS needs to do, making the agency obsolete and 'irrelevant'."'

First Hillary Clinton's Finances, Next Jeb Bush's

By Rick Pearcey • April 27, 2015, 08:57 AM

Breitbart reprints the following from a story first appearing in Politico:

The author raising questions about whether Hillary Clinton gave special treatment to foreign donors to the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state is looking into the finances of another 2016 presidential hopeful: Republican Jeb Bush.

Peter Schweizer said Sunday on ABC’s This Week that over the past four months he’s also been looking into the former Florida governor’s dealings in what could serve as a follow up to Clinton Cash, which has caused headaches for the democratic hopeful.

Specifically, Schweizer said he was investigating Bush’s land and airport dealings along with certain financial transactions with hedge funds in what he said would be a "similar mode" to his look into Clinton.

Hillary: "Religious Beliefs" Must Change for Sake of Abortion Rights

By Rick Pearcey • April 24, 2015, 08:05 AM

Kerry Picket reports at the Daily Caller:

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a feminist tone on Thursday. She told attendees at the sixth annual Women in The World Summit that "deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed" for the sake of giving "access" to women for "reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth."

"Far too many women are denied access to reproductive healthcare and safe childbirth an laws don’t count for much if they’re not enforced. Rights have to exist in practice -- not just on paper," Clinton said.

"Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will," Clinton is quoted as saying. "And deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed.

"As I have said and as I believe, the advancement of the full participation of women and girls in every aspect of their societies is the great unfinished business of the 21st century and not just for women but for everyone -- and not just in far away countries but right here in the United States,” Clinton said, according to the Daily Caller.

Rep. King Announces Bill to "Restrain the Judges on Marriage"

By Rick Pearcey • April 23, 2015, 09:24 AM

Lauretta Brown reports at CNSNews.com:

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has introduced a bill that would block the federal courts, including the U.S Supreme Court, from hearing or deciding cases involving the definition of marriage.

King discussed his on legislation on Capitol Hill Wednesday, saying that it "follows Constitutional principles" as outlined in Article 3, Section 2, which reads: "The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish."

"King believes Congress has the authority to tell the federal courts they have no jurisdiction to hear any case on marriage," Brown reports.

"And we have the authority to prohibit any funding from being used to enforce or adjudicate any decision on marriage,” Kings is quoted as saying.

“Congress has the authority to establish all the federal courts, and we’re directed to establish one by the Constitution. That one is the Supreme Court. All the other federal courts are created by Congress at the discretion of Congress," King said, according to Brown.

What happens if King's proposal becomes law? "That would mean that the federal courts would no longer hear cases on marriage. They would revert back to the states, and the states then would define what marriage is, and most of the states have defined marriage between a man and a woman,” Brown quotes King as saying.

Comment: It should be noted that a) in speaking of courts and states "defining marriage," such governmental entities would be making merely legal definitions, and the b) such legal definitions may or may not be true to reality.

Clearly, if a court decides, or the voters of a state decide, that "marriage" allows, for example, that a U.S. president can "marry" a horse, it does not follow that marriage per se has been redefined.

Instead, what has happened is that a society has moved to a point where it cannot, or willfully refuses, to reject counterfeit "marriage" (between man and a man or a man and a horse, let us say) and the real thing (between one man and one woman).

Codifying a counterfeit never changes a sham into an actuality. "Homosex Marriage" is an oxymoronic sham of the first order. It has all the validity and purchase of Monoply money.

By Rick Pearcey • April 22, 2015, 10:29 AM

If you missed my appearance last week on the "Joe Miller Radio Show," you can listen to it online at Joe's Youtube channel.

In the program we discussed my Foreword (a call to "test everything") to Nancy's new book (Finding Truth) as well as the endgame of homosexual "marriage." That endgame is not "marriage equality" (an effective but relativistic slogan) but "marriage extinction" (as admitted to by lesbian NYT journalist Masha Gessen).

Joe Miller (bio) ran for U.S. Senate (Alaska), is a gradaute of West Point, and saw combat with the 1st Infantry Division in Desert Storm.

Don't Think, Just Graduate: University of North Texas Students Outraged With Republican Commencement Speaker

By Rick Pearcey • April 22, 2015, 09:17 AM

Bethany Salgado reports at Campus Reform:

Students at the University of North Texas are outraged with the school’s chosen commencement speaker for next month’s graduation and more than 2,400 students have signed a petition to have him replaced.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is set to speak at the ceremony in May, but students who have signed the petition argue that he is unfit to speak because they disagree with his political stances.

"Kimberly Williams, a student who signed the petition, wrote that, '[h]e is not the appropriate person to lead our young leaders into the world,' and continued on to list specific incidents of his alleged anti-feminism," Salgado writes.

Another student, Allyson Nophsker said, accordidng to Salgado, "I'm signing because I want to attend my own graduation ceremony, but cannot due to my moral disagreements with Abbot's [sic] policies."

"According to the Houston Chronicle, University President Neal Smatresk would not budge on the school’s selection," Salgado reports.

"He's a new governor, he's supportive of higher education. Why wouldn't we want to celebrate the success of our institution in its 125th year with him?" Smatresk said, according to Salgado.

Comment: If you'd like your college student to develop the ability to think independently and to acquire tools of sales resistance to any notion of "Don''t Think, Just Believe" (whatever your college professor tells you, for example) or "Don't Think, Just Graduate," you may want to check out Nancy's new book Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes.

Nancy wrote Finding Truth to counter the easy believism that characterizes so much of today's society -- whether in church, on campus, across media, in the boardroom, or at the voting booth.

Just off the top of my head, I can think of more than 2,400 college students who might benefit from exposure to such a book.

12 Years Colorado Campus Carry: "Especially Good News for Women"

By Rick Pearcey • April 21, 2015, 08:11 AM

A.W.R. Hawkins writes at Breitbart.com:

On April 20, The Washington Post ran a column showing that campus carry has been the law of the land in Colorado since 2003, and the results have not been anything like those currently fighting against campus carry claim it should be.

There have been no mass shootings and, apart from one incident in which a gun was accidentally discharged by a Colorado University employee, there have been no crimes by permit holders.

No one was injured in the accidental discharge, and the employee was fired.

"The success of campus carry in Colorado is especially good news for women, who are able to level the playing field by being armed and better able to defend their dignity when under sexual attack,' Hawkins writes.

The National Crime Victimization Survery and Florida State University Prof. Gary Kleck's scholarly work "show that guns in the hands of law-abiding women allow those women to stop a sexual assault in its tracks," Hawkins continues, "and Colorado’s campus carry experience shows concealed carry permit holders simply aren’t those committing crimes on campuses."

Report: Islamic State Shoots, Beheads Some 30 Christians in Libya

By Rick Pearcey • April 20, 2015, 10:20 AM

Sylvia Westall reports for Reuters:

A video purportedly made by Islamic State and posted on social media sites on Sunday appeared to show militants shooting and beheading about 30 Ethiopian Christians in Libya.

Reuters was unable to verify the authenticity of the video, but the killings resemble past violence carried out by Islamic State, an ultra-hardline group that has expanded its reach from strongholds in Iraq and Syria to conflict-ridden Libya.

"The video, in which militants call Christians 'crusaders' who are out to kill Muslims, showed about 15 men being beheaded on a beach and another group of the same size, in an area of shrubland, being shot in the head," Westall reports.

Denzel Washington: The Bible Is the "Answer People Are Looking For"

By Rick Pearcey • April 15, 2015, 09:06 AM

Michael Chapman reports at CNSNews.com:

In explaining why the Bible is a best seller year after year, Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington said there is something "tugging" inside of us, "telling us to believe in something," which is God, and that the Bible provides the "answer people are looking for" even if they do not realize it at first.

Don't Think, Just Agree: The Closing of the Campus Mind

By Rick Pearcey • April 9, 2015, 10:26 AM

"I can't have you participate in class anymore," the professor of soical welfare and policy said.

Thus begins Devorah Goldman's Weekly Standard account of the terrifyingly small-minded world of the Hunter College School of Social Work, where Marxist zombies walk to and fro, seeking to devour whatsoever human brains dare exhibit independence of thought.

Apparently, group "diversity" reigns, along with group "thought."

But is there a silver lining? If you want to become a zero, meld with the borg, enjoy becoming cannon fodder for the revolution, and learn how to "tolerate everything but disagreement," then education camps like Hunter College could be just the cage for you.

Then again, can we really trust Goldman's account? Her mind seems suspiciously independent. The machine is watching.

Muslims Don't Want to Bake Your "Wedding" Cake, Either

By Rick Pearcey • April 8, 2015, 10:12 AM

Kirsten Anderson reports at LifeSiteNews.com:

Homosexual activists have painted Christian bakers, florists, and photographers as veritable hatemongers for refusing to participate in a same-sex “wedding” on religious grounds -- but it is not only Christianity that teaches that homosexuality is immoral.

In a new video, Steven Crowder discovered numerous Muslim bakeries refused to bake a cake for a homosexual “marriage” -- and Crowder is calling homosexuals out for not being equally aggressive toward the Religion of Peace.

Comment: Just as business-owners rightly refuse patrons trying to pass counterfeit money, even so those who own bakeries are within their rights to refuse to countenance counterfeit "marriage."

Whether you are Christian, Muslim, agnostic, or atheist: If it's your business, it's your choice.  

And if homosexuals decide not to protest Muslim bakeries, fine.

So now, O homosexual man or woman, when it comes to Christian bakers, florists, and photographers, go and do likewise. Let freedom ring.

It's their business, it's their choice. Let freedom ring.

Flood of Christian Cash Rescuing Florist Attacked by Homosexuals

By Rick Pearcey • April 7, 2015, 11:02 AM

Leo Hohmann reports on the case of Barronelle Stutzman, owner of Arlene's Flowers. She is

. . . a 70-year-old grandmother and devout Christian who has run a flower shop for 40 years, refused to make flower arrangements for the wedding of a longtime customer, and found herself on the receiving end of two lawsuits -- one from the Washington state attorney general’s office and another from the two men planning a same-sex wedding ceremony.

They are not only suing her business; they’re also going after her personal assets, according to her attorney.

Her GoFundMe account jumped to $85,000 on Easter Sunday and surpassed $115,000 Monday. By Tuesday morning it passed $123,000.

"The judge ruling in the case has opened her savings, personal possessions and even home up as a target for the homosexuals who are claiming her personal assets as damages, according to court documents," Hohmann reports at WND.

Christians, however, "are rallying and spreading the love, stepping up with financial assistance to their brethren burned by the militant same-sex marriage movement," according to Hohmann.

Those who would like to support Barronelle Stutzman can provide financial assistance at her GoFundMe account.

Ravi Zacharias Endorses "Finding Truth": "Immensely Practical and Insightful"

By Rick Pearcey • April 3, 2015, 11:15 AM

We asked author and speaker Ravi Zacharias if he would consider reading and endorsing (if he liked it) Nancy's new book, Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes.

Here is his assessment:

Nancy Pearcey invites her readers to "test everything," as her journey of searching for answers (like my own) revealed that the deepest questions of the heart and mind do not go away and must be addressed.

Whether religious or irreligious, everyone has a worldview.

Finding Truth illustrates how competing systems of thought borrow from Christianity even while rejecting it and provides helpful tools to critically assess the coherency and livability of one’s worldview.

This is an immensely practical and insightful resource.

Here is the press release for Finding Truth.

For more on the concept of "test everything," please see the book's Foreword (by yours truly).

Limbaugh said the phrase works both ways, because people who have strong religious convictions love their Lord.

"I can tell you right now, I could mention I love somebody and it wouldn't be accepted," he is quoted as telling his listeners.

"I would be called a bigot and any number of other bad names," Limbaugh continued. "All I would have to do is say, 'I love Jesus Christ.'"

Bible's Teaching on Homosexuality: Clear, Final, and Sufficient

By Rick Pearcey • April 1, 2015, 10:46 AM

In response to the City Church of San Francisco's decision to submit to homosexualism rather than embrace the Creator's verifiable and liberating norms for human sexuality, Rob Schwarzwalder writes at CNSNews.com:

The corpus of Christian teaching on human sexuality is broad, deep, long, and consistent.

The church fathers were universal in their affirmation that homosexual behavior was sinful.

And in our time, Evangelical scholars have demonstrated with lucidity and cogency what the Bible teaches about sexual intimacy.

"God has spoken in His Word with clarity, finality, and sufficiency. Either we abandon what He says or we affirm and seek to live by it. And there is nothing loving about carving from the text of Scripture any of its teachings: Truth is unchanging and unchangeable, regardless of its cultural appeal or the aggravation it causes those who are offended by it," Schwarzwalder writes.
