House Republicans put a political poison pill in the health care bill they passed last week. Moreover, the House GOP leadership is adamant on a tax boost that will slam working families. Unless corrected by Senate Republicans, these two blunders will let Democrats win back the House next year.
A handful of Republicans in the House and some conservative activist groups derailed the first GOP attempt to pass health care reform. Here the head of one of these groups explains how they helped make last week’s bill a much better one.
In an exercise reminiscent of the old theological debates over how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, congressional Republicans are artificially blocking themselves from pushing a big tax cut. We explain.
Although he was unable to overthrow America’s Free Constitutional Republic and America’s free and open society in the short time he was in the White House, Obama did a lot of damage. In the short space of about eight years, Obama did everything he could to accelerate Islamic infestation in America.
It is astonishing how misinformed and gullible so many people seem to be about the threat of organized Islam. Organized Islam in America takes the form of the establishment of mosques, schools, clinics, shelters, and clubs, and necessitates learning the Quran, and learning and attempting to implement Shariah Law. http://shariahthethreat.org/a-short-course-1-what-is-shariah/a-short-course-12-the-muslim-brotherhood-in-america/
The Quran requires killing “infidels” (anyone who is not a Muslim). That right there should bring opposition from American citizens.
If that doesn’t do it, Shariah Law should. Shariah Law is utterly unconstitutional and, therefore, illegal law in the United States.
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.” U.S. Constitution, Article IV, Section 4.
Shariah Law is dictatorial and abhors the tenants of limited, decentralized, representative government embodied and required by the Constitution. It also abhors the traditional America values of a decent respect for individuals and individual freedom.
For these reasons, local, state, and/or the federal government must step in. Because of the violent and unconstitutional doctrines of the political-religious organization of Islam, government – local, state, and/or federal – should limit and monitor these organizations. Whichever of them are found to be advocating violence against Jews or any other American citizen and/or promulgating the implementation of unconstitutional Shariah Law, the organization should be disallowed. Sure there’ll be cries from the Lying left and clueless do-gooders about religious discrimination. But the truth is this is action against a political-religious organization whose doctrines of the Quran and Shariah Law
1) are a threat to the peace and safety of Americans and
2) do not assimilate into our Free Constitutional Republic but is dedicated to the overthrow of the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the land.
Thus, an Islamic organization is dangerous, illegal, and treasonous.
This is not a call against individual Muslims, it is a call against Islamic organizations that promote illegal, militant, and harmful actions against the peace, safety, and welfare of Americans and American society. Individual Muslim citizens should be respected as peace-loving Americans unless they prove they do not want to assimilate peacefully into our society and culture. However, those Muslims wishing to immigrate into our country must be “extremely” vetted to discover if they truly love America and want to live under her rules and will choose America’s rules especially when America’s rules conflict with the Quran or Shariah Law.

A neo-fascist is now in the runoff for the French presidency. Thankfully, an equally bad far-left extremist lost out to a sensible centrist for the other spot in the runoff.

In the weeks following the Citizens United ruling, the Left settled on a new strategy. If it could no longer use speech laws against its opponents, it would do the next best thing—it would threaten, harass, and intimidate its opponents out of participation.
While Washington politicians and their allies feast on our incomprehensible and corrupt tax system, we the people pay a fearful price in lost opportunities for a higher and healthier standard of living.
The report released today of jobs created in March–a mere 98,000–looks terrible. Dig a little deeper and the job-creation situation is actually robust.

SCL Comment: The women’s movement is a major player in the breakdown of the family which breakdown threatens the well-being of our society and nation.
The women’s movement began in the garden when Eve, deceived by Satan, took the bait of self-exaltation and Adam who was not deceived, went along with it (1 Timothy 2:14). That is why women are instructed by God through Scripture to “be under obedience” and as “the head of every man is Christ”, so “the head of the woman is the man” (1 Cor 14:34, 11:3). Women are meant to be keepers at home and obedient to their own husbands (2 Titus 2:5).
We are living in an age unlike like any in the last 5000 years of recorded history. Until around 1900, history records that the world always sought to know and find God which is the essence of religion. But beginning around 1900, the world began to turn away from God and the Bible because, especially with the discoveries and inventions of the modern age, people began to feel that they had no need of God.
In this godless age, Eve is especially susceptible to deception. Without God, she is greatly vulnerable to being beguiled into rebellion, rejecting men as her head, rejecting their role as homemakers, forsaking their own soft, warm, and modest feminine nature, susceptible to sexual promiscuity, in competition with men forsaking their children and families, and, finally, the ultimate “freedom” of killing their unborn to the tune of many tens, if not hundreds of thousands, of abortions – the modern-day bloodbath of infanticide.
“Equality for women” is a major argument for the women’s movement. They argue that women’s roles of being keepers at home and obedient to their own husbands (2 Titus 2:5) leads to abuse and disrespect. But man’s misapplication of the truth does not negate the truth.
Unlike abusive Islam, the Biblical difference in God-given roles between men and women does not mean a difference in the value of each man and woman. Women are co-heirs of salvation the same as men, and men are to honor women as such “as the weaker vessel” (1 Peter 3:7). God values women as much as men. But equality of value does not translate into equality of roles. The difference in roles brings peace to the family and society. Equality of roles in the name of equity of value is a modern-day confusion and lie.
The women’s movement is full tilt rebellion against God and man fueled by the same serpent who deceived Eve at the beginning. In this case, no government made it happen. Government just became the great enabler.

SCL Comment: Obama has ratified and elevated black hatred and envy of whites to a frenzied level.
Obama never helped blacks to stop their self-hatred and self-loathing that is rife within their culture. Very few have offered black culture the right message – take responsibility for yourselves, work hard, and fight against abuse and dysfunction within your families, within the black culture, and against whites and others. Justice Clarence Thomas is among those few courageous black public figures who have stood against the politically-correct maintenance of the dysfunction in black culture in favor of the independence and well-being of blacks.
Instead, Obama, much like Martin Luther King, whose celebration is misguided, worked to grow the coercive power of the federal government which IMO has led to a heightened attitude of entitlement, more government dependency, and more dysfunction.
Instead of helping blacks to take stock of themselves and take responsibility for themselves, Obama fanned the flames of their cultural quagmire of dysfunction and self-destruction and destruction of others. Most of us know Obama was by far the most destructive President we’ve ever had – to his own people as well as to the rest of us.
