RightNation.US: Being at the Dem's Beck & Call - RightNation.US

Jump to content

-----
I'm feeling pretty hopeless right now about America. I just watched Glenn Beck and pray like crazy that he is wrong. He was talking about a bill that is suppose to be brought up tomorrow regarding Puerto Rico. According to Beck, this is just the first step in making Puerto Rico our 51st state via the TN plan.

Isn't that special? Apparently, my state demanded to be seated in Congress, making us a State without any kind of approval or process as was done by every other state except perhaps Alaska. And now that process may be what the progressives use to stack the deck of Congress with enough leftists to the point where the Dems will be in power for decades to come.

There is also talk about passing legislation to allow D.C. to have Representatives in Congress despite our founding fathers warning against it. Wouldn't that be special; more leftists in Congress?

And of course, they are still working on the felon vote.

If all of this is true, no wonder the Democrats weren't worried about going against the majority of Americans on Healthcare reform.

Beck talked about how the progressives have worked for ages to remove God from the public square, to not respect the Constitution by not even teaching it anymore and replacing it's importance in our courts with case law and to replace individualism with collective rights. In other words, our rights are no longer considered unalienable but given to us by government, i.e. men who can change our rights to the whims of the moment. Or as we all know, more power in their hands and less in our own.

Then of course there is the teaching of Social Justice in our Churches which also is nothing but replacing God's desires with man's.

And just now, they are reporting that the Senate Republicans gave in to the Democrats and have agreed to debate the financial bill. Yet there is nothing in this bill about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. What's the point? I wonder if we can get the word backbone removed from Webster's dictionary? Talk about the Republicans knowing how to take defeat out of the jaws of victory. What idiots!

If that is not enough, I heard earlier today that Marco Rubio expressed concerns about the new illegal immigration legislation passed in Arizona. Here I was thinking that he was someone we could count on to be more Conservative than Republican but nooooo, he's more afraid of losing the votes of people who support illegal activity just because of the law-breakers ethnic background. Geeze, Rubio, I am of Mexican descent but I do not support amnesty for illegals regardless of their heritage. This makes it hard to be upset with Crist's move to run as an Independent and I'm definitely not sending Rubio any money.

Others such as Huckabee and Romney have also spoken out against the new Arizona illegal immigration bill. While I'm not a great fan of either man, the fact that they would both be so weak-kneed about illegal immigration when they both are just salivating at another run for President speaks volumes about the caliber or lack thereof in our possible future leaders.

All this time, I've been irritated with Glenn when he would imply there was no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Now I'm starting to wonder if he was right all along.

This is what happens when you put your hope in men. They will always fail you. The only one who will never disappoint even if I don't always understand is our Father who art in Heaven, Jesus Christ.

I just wish it did not take so much angst for me to re-open my eyes to the truth.

I love the United States of America. I love our founding fathers. I love our Constitution. I love Tennessee. I love my freedom. I know freedom isn't free, but sometimes I just want to go on home. I've been praying for Him to help me to seek His face instead of just His hand. Maybe this is a start.

Elusively yours,
ilja

Ilja,

Nice to see you blogging again. It has been a while since you posted one. Hope to see you post more often again.

With that said, I haven't seen this episode so I cannot comment on the specifics. Although I think the Dems and Reps are different in many way, I do have to agree that both have grown the government way more than our founders intended.

Truthfully, I don't totally buy that they are same. Unfortunately, I do believe a whole lot more of the Republicans are looking out for #1 than I use to think. I'm just so disgusted with the way so many of them act when they aren't up for re-election. And why do only a couple dare to stand up and tell it like it is? The Senate is the worst. They were always so concerned with decorum (or so they claimed) that they never called the other side out when they out and out lied.

I think I'm just venting tonight.

Thanks for the welcome back. I can't promise I'll be blogging more often but I hope I do. Sometimes I think I just have to be really mad or really happy to feel like talking anymore. B)

My sentiments exactly.

I missed the episode of Glenn Beck you're referring to, and I wanted to see it. I sometimes don't get home from work until 6:30 pm. Just upgraded my cable subscription to include a DVR. Now it's programmed to catch all Beck episodes.

What are your thoughts on "Crime Inc."? I'm going to burn that episode to DVD and try to get some lefty-light friends to watch it!

I haven't heard of "Crime Inc." Though it does sound familiar. What is it?

As for Beck, I'm not usually at home in time to see him, either. I just happened to be off early that day.

Crime Inc. is what he's calling the scheme being played out by Obama, and others he's associated with, to capture another large portion of the economy and power by passing the cap-and-trade legislation.
He believes this is serious enough that he's calling on his audience to record this series of episodes and spread the word to everyone you can. When you see the connections and the people involved, how deeply rooted into this, and the stakes involved, it's quite frightening (literally).

I just purchased a video capture device so that I can start burning these episodes of Glenn Beck to DVD. If you're interested (and I hope you are, because I too believe this is urgent), I would be happy to send you a copy. I'm not concerned about copyright issues because he's inviting people to do this. You really need to see whats going on.

In fact, I'm having a difficult time understanding why this isn't being discussed on this board?

A Doctor, A Lawyer, A Little Boy And A Priest
A doctor, a lawyer, a little boy and a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the best efforts of the pilot, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot grabbed a parachute, yelled to the passengers that they had better jump, and then he bailed out.

Unfortunately, there were only three parachutes remaining. The doctor grabbed one and said "I'm a doctor, I save lives, so I must live," and jumped out.

The lawyer then said, "I'm a lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world. I deserve to live." He also grabbed a parachute and jumped.

The priest looked at the little boy and said, "My son, I've lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace."

The little boy handed the parachute back to the priest and said, "Not to worry, Father. The 'smartest man in the world' just took off with my back pack."

At the :50 Maudlin describes Boehner telling him that Obama has,

If that is true, why do we see Boehner continually backing down and rolling over while Obama stands firm and never compromises?

NEVER FORGET!

Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin’s long road home ended Saturday in a blaze of yellow ribbons, the silent tribute of people who lined the roads, and the respect of thousands more who filed past his coffin at a public visitation . . . “If four people showed up, that’s OK with me,” said Keith Maupin, the soldier’s father, as he took a mid-afternoon break outside the Civic Center, where many came up to him to shake his hand or give him a hug . . . Matt Maupin became the face of the war in Iraq for thousands here and across the country in April 2004, when an Arab TV station aired a tape showing the Union Township soldier kneeling and surrounded by masked men carrying automatic rifles . . .Four years and millions of prayers later, a tip from an Iraqi citizen led U.S. soldiers to the farm area northwest of Baghdad where Matt Maupin’s remains were found on March 20 . . .Scoutmaster David Bacon said the boys of Troop 511 had been well aware of the story of Matt Maupin and wanted to pay their own tribute.“I’ve talked to them many times about Matt,” said Bacon, whose cousin, Lance Cpl. David Kreuter, was killed in Iraq in 2005. “They understand it was the sacrifice of young men like Matt that gives us the freedom to meet every Monday night. There are places in the world where Boy Scouting is not allowed.” http://i147.photobuc.../3yqo3h0.gifPFC Keith Matthew MaupinCaptured in IraqApril 9, 2004

We Owe Them So Much

On some distant foreign shore. We pray You keep him safe, We pray You keep him strong, We pray You send him safely home ... For he's been away so long. For he's been away so long. There's a young woman far from home, Serving U.S.A. with pride. Her every step is strong and sure, Courage in every stride. Courage in every stride. We pray You keep her safe, We pray You keep her strong, We pray You send her safely home ... For she's been away too long. For she's been away too long. Bless those who wait their safe return. Bless those who mourn the lost. Bless those who serve this country well, Never mind the cost. Never mind the cost. God, Bless America!

An Email From God?

I got this in an email today and though it doesn't say who wrote it, I don't doubt these things could have happened.'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL' You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001. Neither will I. I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say 'Good-Bye.' I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK..I am ready to go.' I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night. I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said. 'Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.' I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered. I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them. I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan ... I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me? I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor. Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. But, I was there. I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me? Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are 'ready to go.' I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
