Obama: Dreams of Rewriting the Constitution

0
Constitution, Rewrite, Redacted
Constitution, Rewrite, Redacted

It should come as no surprise that President Obama doesn’t like the way the Founders laid out the Republic. You need only look at his actions and utter disdain for enforcing the law to see that.

And now he laments the fact that each state can only elect 2 senators.

At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.

I guess he’s thinking that they’d have more Democrats in the senate if that election were based on population. But wait, isn’t that how it’s done in the House of Representatives? It sure is. And who controls the House right now? Not Democrats!

“So there are some structural reasons why, despite the fact that Republican ideas are largely rejected by the public, it’s still hard for us to break through,” Mr. Obama said.

Structural reasons, eh? Yep, sounds like he’s like to dismantle and rewrite the Constitution to me! No thank you Mr. President, this representative government is representing the constituency just fine. Do your job and uphold the Constitution.

Allen West Says Term “Racism” Means Nothing

Allen West knows…

…what it means to be called an Uncle Tom, sellout, Oreo, white man’s porch monkey, and house Negro. Mr. Smith’s response to his ignorant accusers was spot on. Here it is if you’ve missed it.

This entire episode began with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s reference to crossing the street to avoid a young black kid in a hoodie or a bald white male with tattoos all over his neck and face — relating to a sense of fear for his personal security.

It’s a funny thing –civil rights icon and race hustler entrepreneur, Reverend Jesse Jackson Sr. admitted 20 years ago, “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved… After all we have been through. Just to think we can’t walk down our own streets, how humiliating.”

So the dirty little secret is…

Triple Amputee Veteran Pens Powerful Letter to President Obama

2

President Obama,

On this Memorial Day I can’t help but think of the many veterans who have given their lives to protect the freedoms that we all enjoy today, and quite frankly one that so many Americans take for granted. As you’re playing your 165th round of golf this weekend you can count on our warriors to protect you and to protect this great nation.

From the Civil War to the wars in the deserts of the Middle East, our brave men and women have given their lives for freedoms that can only be found in America.  Generations of selfless Americans have stepped up to fight for a  cause greater than themselves. Freedom is never free, and the price of our freedom has been paid with the blood of our finest Americans. Your daughters  have been fortunate enough to reap the freedoms that so many have sacrificed their lives for. Without these heroes you would have never have had the opportunity to become the President of this great nation.

Sadly, the men and women who have volunteered to fight the in the most extreme conditions in the world are coming back only to find themselves engaged in a new war at home. They have now found themselves in a war with your incompetent administration, who’s scandal ridden legacy has finally hit an all-time low. I can’t help but feel the deepest disgust for the pain you and your administration have caused the families who have lost their heroes battling your war against our veterans back home.  I can’t think of more shameless way to for this country to dishonor its veterans.  And sadly, it’s the lack of your leadership and accountability that lead to these failures.

These men and women who bravely fought in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf Wars have been forced to rely on your useless bureaucratic employees for their health care. These federal employees disrespected these men and women and the sacrifices they have made in the worst imaginable way. They ignored their pleas for help and in many cases left them to die in favor of hefty government bonuses for exceptional performance. We all know you and your regime doesn’t give a damn about these heroes. Your disdain for America and her greatness has never been a secret. You were raised to hate the “American Empire” and were taught that the American military is the enemy. It was easier for you to just ignore the Veteran Affairs crisis as you crisscrossed America fundraising for your fellow Democrats.

I remember candidate Obama promising to overhaul the VA and reduce the backlog.  You claimed that America’s support for its veterans is obvious by the way we treat our vets. You really nailed that one didn’t you?

Just like you were going to fix Detroit or fix foreign policy.  Your high school like approach to solving complex issues can’t be fixed by tweeting hashtags with propaganda to people who want to kill us. Anyone with an ounce of common sense can see you’re unfit to lead our nation, let alone act as our Commander In Chief.  What our country needs now, more than ever is real leadership, someone who doesn’t wait for a crisis, but is able to foresee an issue and deal with it before it happens. Unfortunately for America, you’ve been too busy campaigning and don’t have time to deal with the health care crisis of our veterans. The only thing you seem to care about is your own radical agenda, and now our vets are paying for your negligence with their lives.

As I sit here typing this out I’m dealing with my own VA nightmare which involves the Phoenix VA.  I have given 3 limbs for this country, but apparently that is not enough.  A “clerical error” made by a VA employee has resulted in nearly a year of abuse and mismanagement of my case. In other words, the VA is stealing over $7000 from my disability compensation that I earned when I lost 3 of my limbs for our country.

On this Memorial Day, as I battle your incompetent bureaucrats my family would like to thank you for once again failing our veterans. We can’t help but wonder about the disastrous socialized medicine program that we will surely be dealing with if Obamacare is allowed to be fully implemented. If our incompetent VA cannot handle government healthcare for a fraction of our population, who would be foolish enough to believe a massive health care system designed to provide health care for all American’s would be any different?  You can’t even find someone to build a competent website to work for your socialized medicine program when you had your name attached to it, so why would you care about our veterans when you could so easily push the blame off on someone else?

You have not only failed our veterans, you have failed America in every way imaginable.  You have purposely divided us by race, political parties, and socioeconomic status in order to push a radical agenda on America that can only be passed when you have successfully divided all Americans. Your entire administration is incompetent and you have set America on a path for certain failure.

So, on this Memorial Day, as we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, I’d like to thank you, our Commander In Chief for not even caring enough to provide us with quality health care.

Hear that sucking sound? It’s science.

1

Don’t look now, but those wacky environmental “scientists” are at it again.

We all know there’s proven science. There’s environmental lunatic “science”–it’s “settled,” don’tcha know? And then there’s this….a study (and I use that term loosely) found solar panels are sucking the sun’s energy away from it. Cue the disaster music!

“Scientists at the Wyoming Institute of Technology, a privately-owned think tank located in Cheyenne, Wyoming, discovered that energy radiated from the sun isn’t merely captured in solar panels, but that energy is directly physically drawn from the sun by those panels, in a process they refer to as ‘forced photovoltaic drainage.’”

That’s right. The sun is like a waterfall and the solar panels are like a vacuum sucking away its energy. And like every good dire time-sensitive, impending disaster environmental warning, if we don’t do something RIGHT NOW, the sun will be COMPLETELY DRAINED in a mere 300 to 400 YEARS!

One can only wonder how long it will be until these “scientists” learn the sun has ALWAYS been losing its energy and it ALWAYS will regardless of what we mere mortals do? Until then, pass the sunscreen.

Thinking About a Gun is Now Against the Rules

Little Cowboy
Little Cowboy

This just in… 8 year-old kids imagining guns will get them disciplined and potentially labeled with “bad behavior”. Ahhh… don’t you just long for the times when a little boy only dreamed of a gun to “get the bad guy” or “fight the enemy”? Now it’s automatically assumed that they will soon be entering the neighborhood gang or could be the next serial killer in training.

If we train this natural desire to protect and serve out of our children and instill a fear in them for every use of a weapon… who will be the next generation of soldiers and police? I’m predicting an industry shortage of interested and qualified candidates in the not too distant future.

Republican Latinos Not Welcome in CA Latino Caucus

0

The California Latino Legislative Caucus apparently isn’t open to all Latinos, or maybe they just aren’t taking any new members.

Latino Rocky Chavez of the 76th district was denied access. Why, you ask? Because he’s a Republican. The president of the Latino Caucus went so far as to suggest that he create his own caucus where Republicans would be welcomed. Maybe they should consider renaming the caucus to the California Latino Democrats Legislative Caucus, just to eliminate any confusion?

The Latino caucus’ Mission posted on their website states:

The Mission of the California Latino Legislative Caucus is to identify, promote and advocate on behalf of the professional, educational, social, political and cultural interests of the Latino Community. 

The California Latino Legislative Caucus serves as a forum for members from the State Senate and Assembly to identify key issues affecting Latinos and develop avenues to empower the Latino community throughout California.

That sounds pretty straight-forward and inclusive of all Latinos. In fact, I didn’t find anywhere on their site that there was any partisan divide.

So much for inclusion and tolerance.

Oklahoma Opens the Sharia Can of Worms

0
Quran, Islam, Muslim
Quran, Islam, Muslim

A U.S. District judge decided that an Oklahoma law written to keep international and Sharia laws out of Oklahoma state court decisions was unconstitutional. So, let me get this straight… Oklahomans wanted to clarify that the only laws to be used in their court system was U.S. laws, and THAT was unconstitutional? Apparently so.

The US government has forced the state of Oklahoma to overturn its anti-Sharia bill, after a Muslim man named Muneer Awad sued the state for supposed violations against “freedom of religion.”

According to Jordan Sekulow, the bill never infringed on the Islamic religion, but was placed to prevent international codes of law from entering the government:

At its core, the amendment has nothing to do with infringing on a Muslim’s right to practice Islam or religious freedom generally. This amendment is about “judicial authority,” and is not a “demonization” of Islam.

Where it gets sticky is the free practice of Islam. Certain Muslim sects refuse to acknowledge any legal authority outside of the Quran. Which makes their holy book, not only a religious text but also their legal governing text and law book, unlike other religions.

With the overturning of this law, we have opened a whole other can of worms. Will our judges now be deciding cases based on religious law? Time will tell…

Equipping Criminals with Condoms to Commit Felonies

1

California lawmakers want to hand out condoms to prisoners to prevent the spread of disease. They say it will save taxpayers money. It sounds like a good idea in passing. But consider this…

It’s against the law for inmates to engage in sex in prison. It’s a FELONY!

Where are the prison guards? Maybe we need to determine if we have enough guards and re-evaluate the effectiveness of the ones on the job. Maybe we need more. Maybe we don’t. I don’t know. But isn’t that part of why there are guards… to make sure the criminals don’t keep committing crimes? Is anyone even trying to enforce this statute?

If this unprotected sex causing the spread of disease is such an epidemic, it sounds like someone needs to review security measures in the prisons. Clearly the inmates aren’t having sex in front of the guards, which means there are unsecured, unguarded locales for prisoners to “have some alone time.”

And don’t get me started on the rapes that occur in prison. I doubt seriously the rapist will be concerned enough about his victim to bring his free condom to the scene of the rape.

One thing is for sure… Democrat lawmakers are introducing a bill to provide convicted criminals with supplies that encourage them to commit another felony instead of simply enforcing the current law on the books. Definitely Liberal logic…

Communism Works, just ask El Paso, Texas!

0

“We’ve proved communism works.

If you give everyone a good government job, there is no crime.”

Ok, folks. This is a SITTING Congressman from Florida, a state within the most freedom-loving nation in the world, the REPUBLIC of the United States of America, espousing the virtues of communism to his constituency!

Granted, he’s from the southern-most tip of Florida. And just who voted for this man? Maybe the rest of the population is just too busy on island-time in Margaritaville. Or maybe some of that Cuban communism is creeping in across the ocean.

He should take a little trip to Cuba to see how well communism is working for them down there. Or maybe he should just pay attention to the dingies and makeshift vessels filled with Cuban refugees the regularly attempt to make their way across the strait seeking asylum here. That’s at least 90 miles bouncing on the open water for days in a crowded vessel with limited supplies, risking dehydration and exposure.

So the real question is, if everyone gets a government job and there is no crime (because Cuba is a communist nation,) why would anyone want to leave, and with the odds of survival so stacked against them? People who are MISERABLE and have NO HOPE! Wake up Congressman… communism SUCKS!

School Kids Punished for Praying

Joe visits with Dr. Gina Loudon to share some of the crazy stories and recent headlines…

Elementary school children chastised for praying at school.

College student sets out to prove Islamaphobia but is treated so kindly that she’s confused and somehow decides that the kindness and tolerance must be a form of Islamaphobia. Yet another college study to be proud of (not!)

University wants to be “less white.” How is that not racist?!

Sex week at college… do we really need classes for this in higher education? Your tax dollars at work, helping your kids have a better sex life.

Mandatory Privilege Training at Harvard University

0

Check your privilege, especially your white privilege. Instead of breaking down barriers and doing away with stereotypes, now we are apparently creating more. “Privilege” is the new buzzword, and it isn’t positive. It’s an attempt to shame someone when someone else “happens to think” that person “appears” to be privileged.

Yet even our best and brightest over at Harvard University have latched onto this term and are using it as a rally cry to change the culture of leadership. A group of students have penned a letter to the University that you can read here. In part it says:

“We gravitated to Harvard Kennedy School, in part, because of its explicit mission to “train exceptional public leaders and generate the ideas that provide solutions to our most challenging public problems.”

But they felt like they were missing something in their education:

The HKS Speak Out is asking for a mandatory power and privilege training for every incoming student every year.

Power and privilege training? No, it’s not teaching them how to be powerful and privileged. Those things are not considered desirable. Which is kind of confusing to me, because most leaders are both powerful and privileged, and they are attending the School of Government (which is leadership!) to become leaders. In any event, they are requesting:

A mandatory power and privilege training that examines components of race, gender, socioeconomic class, sexual orientation, ability, religion, international status, and power differentials for every incoming HKS student starting August 2014.

The school agreed and they are working together. Now the above was posted on their tumblr feed 4/29/14. The next post on 5/5/14 issues the following correction:

Correction: This article incorrectly said the administration has agreed to design a “privilege training.” The new training will encourage students to examine how systems and identities play a role in the way policy affects different groups, but the exact content and title of the training is yet to be determined. We regret the error and have edited the sentence.

Apparently the University changed their collective minds about a “privilege training.” Or maybe they’re changing the terminology so as not to be quite as obvious. Either way, be alert. This type of “lingo” is divisive. We need to pull people together, not further divide them by encouraging class warfare.

Terrorists Can Now Practice Law in the U.S.

0

Yes, how far we’ve come with tolerance. Now illegal aliens can practice law in the United States of America. Both California and Florida have now passed laws to allow illegals to become attorneys. Tell me again how someone who is here illegally (a criminal) can be entrusted to interpret and defend the law?

Lawyers are officers of the court. They have a responsibility to uphold our laws. An illegal has already, by definition, broken the law and therefore cannot uphold it.

But, you say, he was brought here illegally as a toddler by their illegal parents. It wasn’t his fault. He didn’t choose to come here. He went to school here. He went to college to become a lawyer here. We educated him. Why would we deny him employment?

Are you telling me in all those years being here, he never had the opportunity to become a citizen? If he’s in college, he’s over 18. Has he applied for citizenship?

Folks, this is ludicrous. The fact that he may have been brought here through no fault of his own, does not change the fact that he is illegal. And this “child” scenario is only one of the many scenarios that could play out.

Now take the terrorist who is here illegally, either through a border crossing or an overstayed expired visa. So far, he hasn’t been causing any issues. He attends our schools on a student visa and gets his degree. He’s been planted here by a terrorist cell. He’s a sleeper. He just needs to bide his time, get his degree, and begin his practice. He seems like a good citizen with only that one little fault (illegal)… for now. What happens when he’s called to duty by his terrorist cell? And now he’s an officer in OUR courts! It could happen.

This is a line that should never have been crossed. Tolerance is one thing. Stupidity is another. These laws make stupidity look like a genius.

Would PC Police Arrest the “Keep America Beautiful” Campaign of the 1970’s Today?

0

Remember the “Keep America Beautiful” commercials from the 1970’s with the crying Native American Indian? Do you think these commercials would fly today? I don’t think they’d get past the PC (political correctness) police.

Iron Eyes Cody (an Italian-American playing a Native American!) starred in this series of commercials. The effectiveness of both the campaign and advancement of Native American causes was successful. In 1995, the Native American Hollywood community honored Cody for his contribution to their causes. Apparently, they weren’t offended by the commercials or his portrayal of a Native American. So… why are we so ultra-sensitive today?

Take a look. Let me know your thoughts…

DOT Bans Sign on Citizen’s Private Property… Oh, And It Was Religious…

1

It doesn’t matter if it’s your property and your sign, if the government says remove it, you better comply… at least until you retain a lawyer!

A Christian Texas woman put up a sign on her property displaying the 10 Commandments. No, it wasn’t a small sign. It was big enough for the folks driving along the local highway to see, along with all the other commercial advertisements known to litter a highway. So what’s the big deal?

The sign wasn’t obscene. It wasn’t commercial.

Still, a Department of Transportation official notified her it needed to be removed. They’ve since changed their minds (I suspect it was not long after they got a call from her attorney), but told her she needs to go through some sort of permitting process.

Folks, if you hear of things like this happening, you need to stand your ground and help others stand theirs. If it happens to someone else, it could happen to you. So take up a collection and help them fight! We’re all in this together and if we don’t hang onto those rights, they’ll slip away one by one.

Is this issue a free speech, property rights, or religious freedom issue? Which do you think precipitated the initial call from DOT? Let me hear your thoughts!

The Liberty Institute is one organization that helps people with issues like this one. Consider supporting them, and, if necessary, make use of their services.

Hood Disease Worse Than PTSD

0

What ever would we do without the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) labeling every part of the human condition as a “disease”?

We all know that living in the inner city can take a toll on your life. Those who live in the city typically have higher levels of stress. And now, there is evidence that it makes it harder for young people to learn. Why, you ask?

The CDC says it’s the same condition that soldiers returning from war-zones experience… “post-traumatic stress disorder” (PTSD). Doctors say it’s even MORE complex than PTSD and are calling it “Hood Disease”.

I’m sorry. I know living in the inner city can be rough. But equating it to what combat soldiers have dealt with in war? There’s no comparison.

And, seriously, if our children ARE being faced with a war-zone-like neighborhood and school, then maybe we need to send our military in to take over until order is restored. Isn’t that what they’re doing overseas? We have the means to make cities safe. Why aren’t we doing something about it? Probably because it isn’t really a “war-zone” but an over exaggeration to somehow excuse young people and their families for their poor performance in school.

Instead of labeling another “disease” for our kids (which effectively does nothing), how about we send in some help get things under control. If it’s really that bad, there’s something that we, as a nation, can do if leaders in that area really care about the kids.

There is No Constitutional Right to “Not Be Offended”

1

Why is it always one parent or one person who dictates to the rest of us what is and is not ok? We are not supposed to be a nation ruled by the minority. We are setup to be a representative government nation. That should be trickling down to all aspects of life, including an elementary school performance.

Parent Elaine Bolman found it offensive that her daughter or her classmates would be asked to dress up like a stereotypical Native American caricature.

Just to be clear, this particular instance of ONE parent offended by an upcoming performance of the song “YMCA”. CANCELLED!

Then there was the ONE student offended by a “Phiesta” fundraising event to help people who couldn’t afford surgeries. CANCELLED!

Then there was the ONE person who complained about a scripture posted on an Air Force Academy cadets personal white board. REMOVED!

And the ONE teacher who shut down the student giving an oral Christmas report about her personal Christmas traditions because she dared to mention religion. SILENCED!

Why do we keep letting ONE person dictate the conversation and ultimately squelch the rights of many others? No one has the right to “not be offended.” You can’t find that anywhere in our Constitution.

In a country where free speech is a valued commodity, someone somewhere will most certainly be offended at some time by something someone else said!

It’s time “the others” voice their opinion and stop being cancelled, removed, and silenced. It only takes ONE to stop the conversation. How many does it take to restart it? It’s time we work together and find out…

The Gays: Eating Their Own for Revenge

0

Apparently it is no longer enough for gay political groups if a candidate is a lesbian. Said lesbian candidate must also toe the line and be outspoken against all things heterosexual and traditional—especially the hated voter-approved Prop 8.

And if said lesbian candidate also happens to be the younger sister of the leading proponent and political strategist of Prop 8, Frank Schubert…well, all bets are off, Sistah.

Anne Marie Schubert is the leading candidate running for the Deputy District Attorney job in Sacramento county, CA. Frank Schubert’s opponents have long memories and they don’t mind taking down one of their own to get their revenge.

No matter that if Anne Marie Schubert won, she would be “the highest ranking openly gay official in Sacramento county’s history.” No ma’am. No matter that Prop 8 “passed with 52% of the vote to define marriage as the union between a man and a woman.” No, sir. The gays will have their revenge because she did not speak out against Prop 8.

Afterall, to the left, the only thing that matters is The Agenda–always and forever.

New Church Worships the Goddess Deity Beyonce’

0

Some things you have to see to believe… like a church dedicated to worshiping Beyonce. They call her the goddess Bey walking on earth among us, a deity, and Lord and Saviour. They say they have hundreds of followers and are multiplying rapidly. And they’ve collected enough money to begin groundbreaking to build a temple to worship and honor Bey. They are called the National Church of Bey. And their “Beyble” (Bible) should be ready for distribution soon.

Don’t believe it? Check out their Youtube commercial. They have their own channel.

[youtube id=”x-mO6bENX_s”]

And they’re launching their own clothing line so that we can all feel like goddesses.

Here’s a link to their Tumblr feed. You can take a look for yourself. And if you’re so inclined, they’re looking for followers across the nation to start up local congregations.

Various news outlets have been reporting on this for nearly a month now. Still no official word from the Beyonce camp. Hmmm…

 

I’ll Have Chocolate Milk, Please.

1

Is nothing sacred? The latest lefty attack on childhood is coming against that horrible-no-good-very-bad….chocolate milk. Wait…what?

Connecticut lawmakers have just passed the Chocolate Milk Ban bill 144-0 in the State House and approved it unanimously in the State Senate too. That’s right, supporters of the ban claim sodium levels are too high, so no more delicious chocolaty drinks for you, Connecticut kids. No sir, government knows best after all.

Thank goodness the American Heart Association does not agree with the ban. In fact, they fear kids will choose not to drink milk at all which could impact calcium and other nutritional levels. Even Connecticut’s Democratic–yes, you read that correctly–Governor Daniel P. Malloy does not agree with the ban and looks unlikely to sign the bill once it reaches his desk.

How Liberalism Violates All 10 Commandments

0
Editors Note: The following is reprinted from BarbWire.com courtesy Matt Barber

One of my readers, we’ll call him Moses, is the publisher of a mainstream newspaper in California. He wrote me the other day with an insightful observation. Since Moses works in one of the most liberal industries, in one of the most liberal states in the union, I won’t divulge his real name. We don’t want Moses tarred, feathered and banished to Oklahoma with a scarlet “C,” for Christian, emblazoned on his Harris Tweed sport coat. (Note: I have antipathy toward neither Oklahoma – I once lived there – nor Harris Tweed, though I do recommend against wearing Harris Tweed in Oklahoma. Especially in the summer.)

“Matt, think about this,” wrote Moses. “Every one of the Ten Commandments is explicitly violated by a principle of the left.”

So I thought about it.

And you know what? Slap me with a Red River catfish if Moses ain’t exactly right.

To be sure, as individuals, we’ve all violated many, if not most or all, of the 10 Commandments. In our fallen, sinful state we have an inherent propensity to rebel against God’s perfect and holy will for our lives. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

Thank God for making available a path, narrow as it is, for eternal redemption and salvation through Christ Jesus.

Still, there is a difference between individual sins and a philosophical worldview that embraces those sins as a matter of course. Modern liberalism – “progressivism,” leftism, secularism, pick your poison – is built upon, by and for sin itself. Liberalism’s entire fabric is constructed by precept planks that are soaked through and stained by man’s arrogant rebellion against our Creator God.

In sum, liberalism is folly. It represents man’s futile attempt to disorder God’s natural order. It’s the unholy brainchild of God’s very first enemy, given by that enemy to God’s favored creation, us, with the sole purpose of destroying that creation.

Unfortunately, we’re all too happy to help. Liberalism just formalizes the process, making sin public policy.

Volumes could be penned on the myriad ways in which the central tenets of liberalism violate each of the Ten Commandments. The following is a much truncated analysis:

The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17):

1. Thou Shalt Have No Gods Before Me.

At worst, liberalism denies the very existence of God in the forms of atheism and secularism, while, at best, it adopts that wonderfully “inclusive” blasphemy called religious pluralism. Pluralism presumes to give the false gods of false religions equal footing and denies Christ as He defined Himself: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Liberal “Christianity” falls under this category. It’s pluralism with a Christian stamp.

Secular humanism, liberalism’s prevailing false religion, denies God altogether and crowns man as king over himself and the measure of all things. “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.”

2. Thou Shalt Not Make Graven Images.

We’re talking idolatry here. Liberalism is built on it. First, there’s literal idolatry (the worship of man-made idols, animals or inanimate objects) enjoyed by our New Age friends. And then there’s everything else: pantheistic environmentalism, the idols of “reproductive freedom,” “sexual liberation and equality,” etc.

Essentially, liberalism worships the created over the Creator. Liberalism also worships the sins of the flesh (see Commandments No. 1, 6 and 7).

3. Thou Shalt Not Take the Lord’s Name in Vain.

To deny God is to take the Lord’s name in vain. To deny God as He defines Himself is to take the Lord’s name in vain. To misrepresent God, to call other gods God or to deny the deity of Christ is to take the Lord’s name in vain. Liberalism does this and much more. Many liberals also mock Christ, Christianity and Christians. They revile the exclusive nature of Jesus, His commands and His faithful followers. They hate truth.

4. Remember to Keep Holy the Sabbath.

This one is a bit tricky as it is widely understood to fall under the Jewish ceremonial law, not the moral law – the old covenant, not the new. Christ Himself healed (worked) on the Sabbath. That said, many Christians still view Sunday as the Sabbath and do, indeed, keep it holy. Not all liberals (there are certainly liberal Jews), but liberalism at large denies the Sabbath any significance whatsoever, much less a holy significance.

5. Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother.

Liberalism seeks to supplant parents with “progressive” government. It diminishes parental rights and encourages children to rebel against the antiquated conventions held by mom and dad. It denies that children even need a mother and father and bristles at the “heteronormative” lack of “gender neutrality” inherent within the very words “mother and father.” The sin-centered, counter-biblical notion of “gay marriage” desecrates God’s design for true marriage and family and is intended to undermine these cornerstone institutions.

6. Thou Shalt Not Murder.

Abortion, euthanasia, “pro-choice,” “reproductive rights,” “death with dignity.” Need I say more? Sacrosanct is the liberal rite of passage for a feminist mother to slaughter her own child in the womb. Fifty-five million dead babies later, liberals continue to worship at the pagan altar of “choice” (see Commandments No. 1 and 2).

7. Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery.

This means all sexual immorality as identified in the scriptures, to include marital infidelity, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, incest, et al. Liberalism, it seems, embraces all perversions of God’s design for human sexuality. Central to liberalism is moral relativism. When it comes to sex, you can do no wrong because there is no wrong.

8. Thou Shalt Not Steal.

With class warfare as its fuel, liberalism embraces the redistributionist philosophies of Marx and Engels. Liberalism thrives on theft. Like some completely incompetent and inefficient Robin Hood, liberal government steals from the middle class to give to the poor, thereby ensuring that liberal politicians remain in power and everyone else remains miserable.

9. Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness.

I give you Saul Alinsky from his Rules for Radicals: “The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means.” As we’ve learned from Barack “you can keep your insurance” Obama, that includes lying. Liberals lie. That’s what they do. The ends justify the means. Bearing false witness about detractors of liberalism is par for the course.

10. Thou Shalt Not Covet.

Again, liberalism uses man’s inherent covetousness as the driving force behind all liberal economic policies. Creating a political climate of economic envy and class warfare gives liberal government the cover needed to take wealth from those who produce and redistribute it to those who don’t. Not only does liberalism violate this commandment, liberalism commands its adherents to do the exact opposite. “Thou shalt covet.”

As Satan “masquerades as an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14), so, too, does liberalism masquerade as good. It’s deceptively packaged in flowery euphemisms and feel-good sound bites that promise “equality,” “tolerance” and libertine notions of “social justice.”

Yet, in reality, liberalism, in both philosophical and practical terms, simply signifies man’s predisposition to “call evil good and good evil.” It’s sin, all dolled up and doled out.

Ronald Reagan once quipped, “I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.”

If the Gipper had lived another couple decades, he might’ve found out.
