Attacking America: Military Court Upholds Marine's Bad Conduct Discharge Over Bible Verses

By Rick Pearcey • August 12, 2016, 12:30 PM

When Obama talks about fundamentally transforming America, what he means is fundamentally attacking America, an example of which can be seen in a news story published yesterday in the Washington Times. Bradford Richardson reports:

The highest U.S. military court has upheld the bad conduct discharge of a Marine who refused to remove Bible verses from her workstation.

That's right. Bible verses. A country whose birth certificate publicly proclaims its rootedness in the Creator now has incompetent judges who decree that information from the Creator cannot be displayed at work by people in the U.S. military.

Ahem, there would be no U.S. military apart from the founding commitment to create a nation rooted in the Creator. I think the Declaration of Independence pretty much settles that one.

The word transformation has such a nice, positive ring to it. But nothing positive is going on here. What Obama represents, and what this ruling represents, is an attack on America.

And not an attack on something peripheral, but on something foundational -- such that, if the attack succeeds, that which rests upon the foundation isn't merely "transformed." Rather, it is utterly destroyed.

Yep. Birds will still be singing. But they'll be singing amid the ruins.

Obama is about attacking America and destroying America. And that, by definition, is a move away from human freedom and dignity into human unfreedom and indignity. "A" cannot equal "non-A."

Richardson continues his report:

In a 4-1 decision handed down Wednesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces said the Religious Freedom Restoration Act does not apply to the case of former Cpl. Monifa Sterling, who was court-martialed and convicted of six offenses stemming from her noncompliance.

Political secularlists -- such as Obama -- as a matter of their worldview commitment, must find a way to remove the Creator, Christianity, the Bible, and Americans who affirm these matters from any kind of legitimate role in public life.

Oh, so there's this thing called the "Religious Freedom Restoration Act." Ah, who cares? A president and a secular machine that has already disrespected the U.S. Constitution isn't going to be bothered by a law. They'll find a way around it. They'll find judges more than happy to impose their personal anti-Creator, anti-1st Amendment feelings upon whatever case happens to be before them. Rubber stamp that secularism.

The 1st Amendment of course tells Congress to "make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

The Christian consensus that gave birth to the United States was rightly worried about a power-hungry centralized federal government.

The founders were equally rightly worried not about the influence of Christianity on public life (that's what they wanted). Rather, they wanted to outlaw the possibility of a national, federal state Christian denominational church.

This was an application of Christianity, not a rejection of Christianity. Because Christianity teaches what everybody knows: People are noble and yet they are broken, fallen. And as fallen people, humans -- even the best of us -- will tend to abuse power to the degree that it is consolidated, monopolized, and not held accountable. 

Just look at Washington, D.C., today.

Thus, the rationale for the famous "separation of church and state." Not as an attack on Christianity, but as an attack on attempts to unify state power and ecclesiastical power into a massive political-ecclesiastical power monopoly.

There was to be -- as a matter of the application of Christian wisdom to the body politic -- no national Anglican, Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran or some of kind of Christian denominational federal, national state church.

So when Kelly Shackelford, who is president of the First Liberty Institute, which represented Monifa Sterling, characterized the ruling as "absolutely outrageous," he is absolutely correct.

Of course Monifa Sterling can place Bible verses in her public workplace. In fact, a U.S. president could fill the Oval Office with Bible verses, if that were his desire, and he'd be totally consistent with the mainstream founding American vision that has attracted millions of people from around the world to her shores.

Christianity is a verifiable way of life meant to be lived out across the whole of life. It is decisively not a private "faith" experience by people holding hands inside irrelevant prayer closets, singing hymns until they die.

Obama would like to reduce Christianity to that kind of non-Christian nonsense (unless it's a secularized, compromised church pushing green homosexual Muslims who know for a fact the AC has got to go to save Planet Earth).

But Christ and Christianity will have nothing to do with Obama's attack on Christianity. Open the Bible and you will find a reality orientation encouraging people to challenge wisely the inhumane status quo and to do so on the basis of verifiable, knowable information concerning God, humanity, and the cosmos. Christianity is a resistance movement par excellence.

"If they can court-martial a Marine over a Bible verse, what's to stop them from punishing service members for reading the Bible, talking about their faith, or praying?"

Of course the attack on her is an attack on all of us. It is an attack on any free-thinking human being who chooses to live in liberating community with God and man.

Monifa Sterling "was court-martialed in 2014 after she refused to take down three handmade placards inscribed with various Bible verses, including Isaiah 54:17, which reads, 'No weapon formed against you shall prosper'," Richardson reports. 

How odd! A Christian woman in the U.S. military surrounds her space with reminders from the Creator about the ultimate failure of those who stand against God. Yes, there will be setbacks. Yes, there is a battle. Yes, secularists will persecute Christians for affirming what is true. The battle rages, but in the end, those who oppose the Creator will not prosper.

And if you examine the kingdoms and principalities set up by those who despise the Creator and his liberating norms for human freedom and dignity, what you see is a historical record of lies, slavery, pain, hatred, deceit. And failure. And that's just the president's cabinet.

Monifa Sterling is to be commended for standing her ground. Her stand is consistent with the 1st Amendment, with the Declaration of Independence, and with who she is as a human being of intrinsic freedom and dignity, having been created in the image of God.

Obama and his true believers are attacking America and Americans. It is not a nice "transformation." Rather it is a blatant, angry, hateful assault on America.

America qua America prospers. America rooted in love and truth in community with God and man -- that America prospers.

Obama's counterfeit? No so much. 

We have a lot of work to do. Let's repel this anti-God, anti-humanity, and anti-American attack on who we are as a people and who we are as a nation.

And Monifa Sterling, thank you for your service to our nation. You will always be one of the few. We need more like you.

U.S. Marine Corps Tests Undermine Women-in-Combat Agenda

By Rick Pearcey • October 7, 2014, 11:51 AM

Bob Unruh reports at WND:

Faced with a January 2016 deadline for introducing women to combat units, the U.S. Marines have discovered that for every man who fails a simulated artillery lift-and-carry test, 28 women fail.

And for a test simulating moving over a seven-foot high wall, less than 1.2 percent of the men could not get over, compared to 21.32 percent of women.

The results [and more] were found in Marine Corps documentation by the Center for Military Readiness, which issued a report called "U.S. Marine Corps Research Findings: Where Is the Case for Co-Ed Ground Combat?"

Military Blimps in Maryland Skies

By Rick Pearcey • June 18, 2014, 11:10 AM

CBS affiliate WJZ TV in Baltimore reports:

Soon, Maryland will be the home to a couple of new landmarks. Actually, sky-marks.

As Mike Schuh reports, two large blimps will soon rise over Harford County and stay put.

Radar blimps like these have been used on the battlefield to track the enemy, and in the Caribbean to intercept drug runners. . . .

What will they be looking for? Anti-ship cruise missiles, unmanned aircraft and swarming boats.

These blimps are a lot like a toy balloon. They are unmanned and are held in place by a very long tether. . .

With a range from Richmond to Staten Island, privacy experts have concerns.

"That kind of tracking technology raises privacy concerns, and if the military wants to test hardware they should not be testing out on the American public," said David Rocah, ACLU staff attorney.

Aberdeen’s spokesman says that’s not happening.

"There are no cameras aboard the payloads of either of these aerostats. We are not going to be hovering around our neighbors around Aberdeen Proving Grounds, seeing what they are doing in their backyards; no cameras, no spying," [Aberdeen spokesman Kelly] Luster said.

But who is to say cameras and other spy equipment would not be placed onboard these balloons -- and other devices like them -- in the future, especially in a country already bossed about by a federal establishment that has untethered itself from the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution, which lay out principial and political grounds for human dignity and respect?

Loss of privacy already abounds in America -- think of NSA wiretaps, IRS prayertaps, Obamacare's invasion into our daily lives, abortion's invasion of the womb to seek and destroy millions of pre-born human beings.

But America is not alone in this. Think of the millions of human beings slaughtered by their own governments, an estimated 262 million in the 20th century.

But whether alone or not, we see that a machinery of oppression already exists in the "land of the free." This the brave question. And the brave who would be free resist.

Let there be no doubt: Sometimes what looks a lot like a toy balloon could be a toy balloon. And sometimes not.

2007: Then-Sen. Obama Blasted Bush for "Deplorable Conditions" at VA

By Rick Pearcey • May 21, 2014, 08:27 AM

Jim Geraghty writes at National Review:

Then-Senator Barack Obama, November 12, 2007: "After seven years of an Administration that has stretched our military to the breaking point, ignored deplorable conditions at some VA hospitals, and neglected the planning and preparation necessary to care for our returning heroes, America’s veterans deserve a President who will fight for them not just when it’s easy or convenient, but every hour of every day for the next four years."

By 2012, Obama continued to compare the performance of the VA during his administration favorably to his predecessor, declaring, "For the first time ever, we’ve made military families and veterans a top priority not just at DOD, not just at the VA, but across the government."

But now in 2014, under Obama's watch, "we know the report of at least 40 U.S. veterans dying waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system is only the tip of the iceberg."

Air Force Academy: God's Word vs. Pentagon's Word

By Rick Pearcey • March 14, 2014, 10:09 AM

Todd Starnes writes:

The Restore Military Religious Freedom coalition, a group of two dozen like-minded religious liberty organizations, announced Thursday that they are ready to offer assistance to any Air Force Academy cadet who faces repercussions for writing Bible verses on their hallway whiteboards.

The Air Force Academy admitted Wednesday that a cadet leader had to remove a Bible verse he had displayed outside his dorm room because it offended non-Christians and could "cause subordinates to doubt the leader’s religious impartiality."

About Face! Pentagon Admits Christian Ministry Not a "Hate Group"

By Rick Pearcey • October 16, 2013, 11:10 AM

Todd Starnes writes at FoxNews.com:

The Pentagon has admitted that information used in an Army briefing that labeled the American Family Association (AFA) as a domestic hate group was not acquired from official sources and does not reflect Army doctrine.

Meanwhile, the president of the well-respected Christian ministry says his organization may file a defamation lawsuit against the military.

“We are probably going to be taking legal action,” said Tim Wildmon, president of one of the nation’s most prominent Christian ministries. “The Army has smeared us. They’ve defamed the American Family Association.”

"The AFA was listed alongside domestic hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam during a briefing last week at Camp Shelby in Mississippi," Starnes explains. "A soldier who attended the briefing recently sent me a photograph of a slideshow presentation that listed AFA as a domestic hate group because of their support of traditional family values and their opposition to homosexuality."

"George Wright, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon, tells me the slide was not produced by the Army and it does not reflect their policy or doctrine," Starnes writes. “It was produced by a soldier conducting a briefing which included info acquired from an Internet search,” Wright is quoted as saying. “Info was not pulled from official Army sources, nor was it approved by senior Army leaders, senior equal opportunity counselors or judge-advocate personnel.”

Two More Female Officers Fail Marines Infantry Course

By Rick Pearcey • July 5, 2013, 10:32 AM

Rowan Scarborough reports at the Washinton Times:

A third pair of female Marine lieutenants has failed to complete the Corps' Infantry Officer Course at Quantico, Va.

The Marine Corps Times embedded a reporter with the latest class of candidates. It reported Wednesday that one of the women was pulled for falling behind schedule. The other made it to the course’s end but did not meet its standards, as did six men, the newspaper said.

Corps commanders have said they will not lower standards to ensure that women can qualify for direct ground combat units. . . .

Pentagon Denies Relationship With Anti-Christian Extremist . . . Instantly Complies With His Demands

By Rick Pearcey • June 3, 2013, 12:10 PM

Ken Klukowski writes at Breitbart.com:

One month ago the Pentagon assured the public it was not being advised by anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein [photo].

Yet [three] days ago Weinstein called the Pentagon demanding that a Christian painting be removed from a dining hall in an Idaho Air Force base, and the Pentagon complied with his demand -- in less than one hour.

"Mikey Weinstein has been meeting with top Pentagon officials during the Obama administration since 2009," Klukowski writes. "He continues to communicate with them at will, and they immediately respond to his demands. He is therefore an unpaid advisor to the Obama-Hagel Pentagon, with considerable influence."

Klukowski notes that "it’s been more than two weeks since roughly 100 congressmen demanded answers from Hagel, but have not heard a word in response. Yet this anti-Christian extremist brags about how the Pentagon leaps into action when he makes a demand, removing Christian artwork in less than an hour."

Klukowski concludes: "Lawmakers are likely to intensify their efforts to find out what’s going on here, and what they can do to stop this assault on Christians in the military."

Pentagon May Court-Martial Soldiers Who Share the Gospel

By Rick Pearcey • May 2, 2013, 10:45 AM

Ken Klukowski reports at Breitbart.com:

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: "Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense. . . . Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis."

"The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith," Breitbart reports.

On Nov. 23, 2012, I wrote on Twitter, "You do realize that 'Christian' Obama is in the process of criminalizing Christianity."

I then illustrated this on Facebook with reference to Obamacare, writing also on Nov. 23, 2012: 

Obamacare requires the funding of pro-abortion provisions. 

Obamamare will fine people who embrace science (the human biology of the fetus), ethics (it's wrong to kill the innocent), the Constitution (there is no basis for the federal gov't to impose its "healthcare" upon the states and the people).

The verifiable data we have vis-a-vis the Christian worldview embraces science, protects the innocent, and favors freedom.

This worldview, as such, cannot therefore be reduced to activities inside prayer closets or to singing 18 verses of "Just as I am."

Community with God and man is intended to be lived out across the whole of life. [emphasis added]

We now already have massive demonization from Obama, the Democrats, and the formerly mainstream Democrat media.

The purpose of demonization is to destroy -- reputations at first; much more later, if necessary.

Fines for not complying with Obamacare will be in force.

What do you think will happen if companies and individuals or companies refuse to pay fines?

Well, stiffer fines. Court. Jail. Possibly more.

This is one of the paths to the criminalization of Christianity currently underway.

Jesus of Nazareth commissioned his followers to take the Good News regarding God's answer to the problem of human brokenness into all parts of the world: "Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation" (Mark 16:15-16).

In view of this statement from the Pentagon, we now have the Department of Defense of "Christian" Barack Obama repudiating Christ, repudiating the explicit, normative, publicly actionable, and verifiable teaching of Jesus of Nazareth.

Memo to Obama: The scope of Christ's commission to share with our fellow human beings the Good News from the Creator (who is the basis of unalienable rights), regarding the real-world solution to the brokenness of the human condition, includes all of life, including military life, even at the Pentagon.

Obama is a mere creature. Neither he nor his servants has the authority to countermand this commission from Christ himself. The extremism of Barack Obama against God, humanity, and freedom becomes more evident with each passing day. A free-thinking people, and a freedom-thinking people, revolts.

Extremism In, Extremism Out: Obama’s Soldiers for Secularism

By Rick Pearcey • April 10, 2013, 12:02 PM

George Neumayr writes at American Spectator:

Whoever put together the recently reported Defense Department materials classifying Catholics and Evangelicals as extremists can be excused for simply reflecting, if a bit overenthusiastically, the ideology of the boss. Obama’s anti-Christian secularism is the order of the day. Why wouldn’t that philosophy seep into DOD materials?

The military is dismissing this slide show for a U.S. Army Reserve presentation, which placed the Catholic Church in the same category as al Qaeda, as an isolated incident. An Army spokesman told the press it "was produced by an individual without anyone in the chain of command’s knowledge or permission," who "was not a subject matter expert, and produced the material after conducting Internet research."

Research into what? Obama’s speeches and writings on the benighted quality of Christianity, all of which rest on the premise that it is extreme? Did he read Obama’s memoirs, which dismiss passages of the Bible as extreme? Had he read Obama’s comment that to "base our policy making" on Abrahamic commitments "would be a dangerous thing"? . . .

"When historians look back on his presidency, they will likely record that he considered his greatest enemy to be not radical Islam abroad but traditional Christianity at home," Neumary writes.

"Winning the culture war through the 'fundamental transformation' of the country has always been of more interest to him than winning wars against Islamic terrorists. As he has proudly noted, 'ending "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" was a topic in my first meeting with Secretary Gates, Admiral Mullen, and the Joint Chiefs'.”

Neumayr concludes, "The 'individual' who put together the U.S. Army Reserve presentation deserves if anything a promotion. As a product of Obama-era brainwashing, he understands that the military no longer exists for God and country but for Obama and his state secularism, which views Americans who still bitterly cling to their Christianity as extremists."

Army Tells Soldiers: "Evangelicals" No. 1 Threat

By Rick Pearcey • April 6, 2013, 01:32 PM

Jack Minor reports at WND:

Soldiers in the U.S. military have been told in a training briefing that evangelical Christians are the No. 1 extremist threat to America -- ahead of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, KKK, Nation of Islam, al-Qaida, Hamas and others.

"Men and women of faith who have served the Army faithfully for centuries shouldn’t be likened to those who have regularly threatened the peace and security of the United States," said Col. (Ret.) Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. "It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization. It also appears that some military entities are using definitions of 'hate' and 'extreme' from the lists of anti-Christian political organizations. That violates the apolitical stance appropriate for the military."

The briefing, which was given to an Army reserve unit in Pennsylvania, came from a U.S. Army Reserve Equal Opportunity training brief titled "Extremism and Extremist Organizations."

The material mentions neo-Nazis, the KKK and other white supremacist organizations. Pictures are shown on various slides of people in Klan attire and Nazi flags. The significance of gang tattoos, and racist acronyms and the significance of numbers were also discussed.

"While the material on gangs and racist organizations is similar to what one might receive from a local police briefing on gang issues, after teaching on neo-Nazis in the military such as Timothy McVeigh, the material makes an amazing link," Minor reports.

"A slide titled 'Religious Extremism' lists multiple organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaida, Hamas, the Nation of Islam, the Ku Klux Klan and the Christian Identity movement as examples of extremist groups," Minor writes. "However, the first group on the list is evangelical Christianity. Catholicism and ultra-orthodox Judaism are also on the list of religious extremist organizations."

7 Reasons Women-in-Combat "Diversity" Will Degrade Tough Training Standards

By Rick Pearcey • February 4, 2013, 07:57 AM

"There are seven major reasons why the Obama Administration, including compliant members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, are being less than candid about the consequences of policies that lame-duck Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ordered on January 24," according to the Center for Military Readiness.

They are:

1. Pentagon Feminists Will Not Accept Men’s High Standards

2. “Critical Mass” Means Many Women, not the Exceptional Few

3. Group Rights, Not Individual Rights

4. Diversity Czar, Career Penalties Will Drive Standards Down

5. “Gender-Free” Training is Not the Same as “Gender-Fair” Training

6. Unannounced Lowered Standards will Be “Equal” But Not the Same

7. Compromised Standards Will Increase Resentment and Harassment Problems

"Under Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, members of Congress -- not the President, the Defense Secretary or even the Joint Chiefs of Staff -- have the responsibility to make policy for the military," says the Center for Military Readiness.

"Congress should fulfill this responsibility by exercising diligent oversight, to include a full and public review of all research data gathered in the past year."

FYI, Free-Thinkers: 1st Counterfeit "Marriage" at West Point Chapel

By Rick Pearcey • December 1, 2012, 06:38 PM

Madeleine Morgenstern reports at The Blaze

The first same-sex wedding ceremony will be held Saturday at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point’s Cadet Chapel, USA Today reported.

Two women, Brenda Sue Fulton and Penelope Dara Gnesin, will exchange vows one year after the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy banning gays from serving openly in the military came to an end.

Here's what's really happening: In the name of a pseudo-intellectual theory of liberation, the policy called "don't ask, don't tell" has been replaced by a form of oppression and discrimination that demands "don't question, don't speak." 

If you are a free-thinker, if you are willing to think outside of the closed-down, closed-in homosexualist box, consider:

Wrapped in the typical liberalist marketing language selling the "sizzle" of "freedom," "equality," and "love" . . . [is in fact] a product loaded with hate, discrimination, and intolerance.

That would be hatred for the rules of freedom (rooted in the Creator [see the Declaration of Independence] who gives both unalienable rights and liberating norms for married love and human sexuality).

That would be discrimination against the wonder of the male-female diversity, oppressing vive la différence with a steamroller of mono-dimensional sameness and flatness (Oh, yeah, "equality").

And that would be intolerance against people who think for themselves and prefer real marriage, real family, and real diversity to pseudo-intellectual counterfeits all gussied up for the county fair in liberaland hickville (imposed by government extremists from Washington).

People who say they are "conservative" should not allow themselves to be duped by the superficial sizzle of "gay" marketing.

Arguing there is a "conservative case for 'gay' marriage" is as sound as arguing there is a conservative case for counterfeit money. You can make it, but only fools bank on it.

As for the GOP, that party needs to realize that human beings do not live by economics alone.

It needs to start thinking, quit reacting, and refrain from allowing marriage-counterfeiters to impose their extremist agenda upon a free people that prefers reality and wholeness over escapism and reactionary pet theories.

Far better, GOP, is to affirm social policy consistent with rules of freedom grounded in reality, instead of submitting to liberty-denying compromises with inflexible counterfeiters who would eat your lunch, not to mention your country. For

. . . a "house-divided cannot stand. The choice is yours -- the rules of freedom vs. the rules for radicals. Choose freedom and you will live. Choose the extreme radicalism . . . and you will not live. Remain a house-divided and you will collapse."

The antithesis is real. Say yes to reality. And throw the well-baited counterfeits of hate, discrimination, and intolerance onto the ash heap of history.

What is true of military struggle is true in society at large: The most deadly assaults always begin from the inside.

Petraeus, Benghazi, and Gun Running to Jihadists

By Rick Pearcey • November 10, 2012, 06:45 PM

Aaron Klein reports for WND from Jerusalem:

The speculation surrounding the sudden resignation of CIA Chief General David Petraeus is focusing in large part on his role in an alleged cover-up of the attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi this past September.

Perhaps overlooked is the CIA’s role in purportedly using the Benghazi mission to coordinate U.S. aid to Syrian opposition groups and information those same insurgents include jihadists openly acting under the al-Qaida umbrella.

One week before he was slated to testify before Congress on the Benghazi debacle, Petraeus on Friday night announced his resignation, citing an extramarital affair, and it was reported he will no longer testify.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., the House Homeland Security Committee chairman, charged in an interview with CNN that Petraeus is “at the center of this, and there are answers that only he has.” King was referring to the Benghazi attacks.

Asked if he will still call for Petraeus testify despite his resignation, Rep. King replied, “Absolutely, to me, he’s an absolutely necessary witness.”

Madeleine Morgenstern reports at The Blaze:

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Friday vowed to subpoena outgoing CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus if he won’t testify voluntarily about the Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

Gowdy said that while he regretted the "personal ramifications" of Petraeus’ sudden resignation over an extramarital affair, it would not stop Congress from hearing from him about the assault on the consulate that left four Americans dead.

"I hope we don’t have to subpoena a four-star general and the former CIA director," the congressman told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News. "I hope he would come voluntarily, but if he won’t, he will be subpoenaed."

We know now that former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed orders and left a CIA safe house to try and save those at the consulate.

And once there they fought a desperate fight, evacuating the consulate employees and “for over two hours they were able to fight back against approximately 200 al-Qaeda terrorists.” Numerous calls were issued for help and went unanswered. . . .

This is Medal of Honor stuff, but under Obama it’s become the stuff of a cover-up. Instead of their bravery holding the line and inspiring a rescue effort, they were left to die. . . . 

In this interview, Charles Woods, father of slain SEAL Tyrone Woods, and also a lawyer, deeply questions the Obama White House.

"The number of mentions of Charles Woods in any media outlet that isn’t FOX News is 1. A blog post on US News and World Report," Greenfield concludes. "The number of stories on 'Binders of Women'? 15,542."

U.S. Marines on the Ground in Yemen, But . . .

By Rick Pearcey • September 14, 2012, 01:41 PM

Fox News reports: 

U.S. Marines are on the ground in Yemen to deal with the aftermath of an attack on the U.S. Embassy in the capital city of Sanaa, as the Obama administration warns of sustained protests outside diplomatic posts across the Middle East and North Africa. 

But now, in the age of Obama, we have to ask: Do the Marines have bullets?

Pacifist Attack on C.S. Lewis

By Rick Pearcey • September 13, 2012, 09:55 AM

Hal G.P. Colebatch writes at American Spectator:

Mark Tooley has done us a service by calling attention to Stanley Hauerwas's challenge to C.S. Lewis's demolition of Christian Pacifism. However, I believe there are several further points to make on this subject.

Lewis, in The Screwtape Letters, had the wily old devil Screwtape point out to his pupil that, from the point of view of Hell war, though it caused agreeable terror, wickedness and suffering among humans, also, unfortunately, led to deplorable instances of bravery, nobility and self-sacrifice.

In wartime people were aware of what was in fact always with them -- death, and one of Hell's most useful tools, contented worldliness, was lost.

From Hell's point of view, war was a two-edged sword, and devils should not be too quick to unthinkingly rejoice over it. . . .

Allen West: Democrats "Afraid" of Black Conservatives

By Rick Pearcey • August 17, 2012, 11:15 AM

At Newsmax: “They’re afraid of us because there are more of us that are able to stand up on our own and talk about the failures of liberal progressive policies, especially toward the black community,” West said.

“They . . . definitely don’t want to have individuals that can stand up on their own.” 

One might also add that, not only are Black conservatives "bright and clean" (thank you for the stereotype-shattering idea, Joe Biden), but they also can read. And write.

Scariest of all, they can access the U.S. Constitution.

Beyond scariest of all, they can access the Delcaration of Independence. This makes black conservatives very intimidating.

Even more intimidating than a guy with a gold toothie.

Marine Corps Law Enforcement Battalions to "Control Civil Disturbances"

By Rick Pearcey • July 24, 2012, 01:31 PM

Steve Watson writes at Infowars:

Units of hundreds of military police officers trained to investigate crimes have been created by the Marine Corps and will “assist local authorities” in securing crime scenes and building cases, reports the Associated Press.

The report notes that “the battalions will be capable of helping control civil disturbances, handling detainees, carrying out forensic work, and using biometrics to identify suspects.”

While the units, each comprising 500 military police officers and dozens of dogs, will “deploy worldwide,” recent forays by the military into domestic policing in the United States may have some Americans wondering if the newly created “law enforcement battalions” will be used at home.

The further the Washington, D.C., establishment moves away from Constitutional governance rooted in Declaration principles -- that is, "unalienable rights" under God instead of under the state, nature, skin color, or last Tuesday's poll from San Franciso -- the more that establishment will have to rely on raw power (financial, social, police, military, etc.) to impose its private values upon the rest of America.

A radicalized U.S. military torn asunder from its duty to protect and defend Declaration freedoms and Constitutional government could be one of several tools available to a political elite to impose control and demand obedience.

That such a scenario is thinkable may startle some. But, in large measure, imposed unfreedom has been the history of the world. Until America showed up. May she show up once again.

And not just for Americans, but for any people and any nation that would actualize what the Creator has already endowed upon all humanity. God, not geography, is destiny.

Pentagon Takes Over Civilian Duties and Sprays Mosquitos in Florida

By Rick Pearcey • July 12, 2012, 01:07 PM

Kurt Nimmo writes at Infowars:

Officialdom in Miami-Dade is working with the U.S. Air Force to spray mosquitos.

“This newest round of mosquito control involves a large C-130 cargo plane based in Ohio to spray Homestead ARB and communities of Doral, West Sweetwater, Kendall, Homestead, Florida City and areas east of U.S. 1, where heavy concentrations of mosquitos have been reported,” CBS Miami reports.

My dad was a career man in the U.S. Army, entering the service as a Private in World War II and retiring 20-plus years later while stationed at Fort Gordon, near Augusta, Ga., with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

I have always embraced and felt comfortable with military culture, after all, I grew up inside of it.

But what we see happening today is not about the military. And it is not about the military, including the National Guard, partnering with civilians to perform various kinds of community service, to the delight of control-and-command power-brokers occupying Washington, D.C.

Nimmo explains that, "since September 11, 2001, the government has devised an elaborate plan to merge civilian and military operations, most notably under the aegis of a coordinated response to terror attacks and natural disasters and other emergencies.

"Military troops," Nimmo continues, "have appeared on the street in response to a murderer at large and as security personnel at the Kentucky Derby. The Pentagon now routinely cooperates with the Department of Homeland Security and state and local law enforcement and has worked locally to oversee and man traffic checkpoints and even arrest civilians."

None of this is coincidental, says Nimmo. "The federal government has a keen interest in merging military and local government operations in direct violation of the Tenth Amendment. If the founders were alive today, they would recognize this for what it is -- the very essence of tyranny."

It is important to keep our eyes on the ball. What is at issue is not the problem of mosquitos in Florida. What is at issue is the problem of liberty in America.

A freedom-loving people no more needs the U.S. military to protect them from mosquitos than do shop owers need the mob to protect them from street violence. 

One might regret the parallel between the military and the mob, but it is one suggested by the practice of the current unconstitutional federal establishment "watching over us" from the swamps of Washington, D.C.

They spray mosquitoes, but human freedom is being stung.

Now Men Are Victims of Military Sex Standards

By Rick Pearcey • April 24, 2012, 08:55 AM

Bob Unruh reports at WND:

While the full picture remains far from clear, signs of the ill effects of the Democrat-initiated law allowing homosexuals to serve in the U.S. military without hiding their sexual preference are beginning to appear.

The newest reports, for Fiscal Year 2011, have just come out, and Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, immediately noted that sexual misbehavior is on the rise.

This tragedy is a sad reminder of the debt of gratitude and honor that we owe to the courageous men and women of the U.S. military, those guardians of freedom who protect American liberty while standing watch on distant ramparts across the world.

Pro-Homosex Extremism "Will Wreck Our Military"

By Rick Pearcey • August 4, 2011, 08:26 AM

"A pro-family leader says he's appalled by the call from a radical homosexual group for military recruiters to reach out to homosexuals once they are officially allowed to join the U.S. military," reports OneNewsNow

"Robert Knight, a senior fellow at the American Civil Rights Union, says no one should be surprised that the homosexual lobby wants special treatment from recruiters," reports OneNewsNow.

This "can't stand" says Knight. "It will wreck our military. People of good conscience will have to leave the military and in fact many have already said they're going to."

According to OneNewsNow, "Knight alleges the entire 'don't ask, don't tell' repeal process was a sham."

Leaked: U.S. Defense Officials Deliberately Skewed Survey Results to Sway "Don't Ask" Repeal

By Rick Pearcey • July 25, 2011, 10:05 AM

LifeSiteNews reports:

An explosive document from the U.S. military’s top investigative office has revealed evidence that a Pentagon survey pivotal to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal was engineered months prior to its release, and deliberately skewed in later media leaks, to sway Congress towards repeal despite opposition from combat troops.

An unredacted version of the April 2011 report by the Defense department’s Inspector General was leaked to the conservative Center for Military Readiness, and a slightly redacted version was confirmed as authentic by a Defense spokesperson to LifeSiteNews.com.

The authors found that Jeh Johnson, a co-chair of the commission handling the survey, had breached the document’s non-disclosure agreements by discussing an early draft of the document with “a former news anchor” and “close personal friend” on or around July 4, 2010. The purpose of the meeting, almost six months before the survey’s official end, was to obtain “suggestions for persuasive writing” in addition to syntax and sentence structure, according to investigators.

Obama a Clueless, Callous Commander in Chief

By Rick Pearcey • June 24, 2011, 08:02 AM

As proved by his embarassing, disrespectful performance at Fort Drum yesterday, Barack Obama is a phony not fit to award the Medal of Honor.

Got questions? Ask SSGT Russ Vaughn, 101st Airborne.
