FR SWAT TEAM---ARMED WITH THE TRUTH AND DANGEROUS (action alert: Kerry allied with secularists)
FR SWAT TEAM ALERT | 4/12/03

Posted on 04/12/2004 4:12:58 AM PDT by Liz

FR SWAT TEAM ACTION PROJECT

John Kerry recently said he is "unsure" about The Passion of The Christ, the film Christians of all tempers are flocking to see, "I don't know," Kerry said when asked if he would see Mel Gibson's blockbuster film. "I am concerned," Kerry told reporters. "I think we have to be careful," he said echoing secularist critics complaints about Mel Gibson's depiction of Christ's last 12 hours. (Reuters, "Democrat Kerry Urges Caution on 'Passion,' 26 February 2004, by Patricia Wilson).

John Kerry also said he is "not sure" God is on America's side in the war on terrorism. Kerry made the startling comments during the Feb 29 Democrat presidential primary debate in New York City. Elizabeth Bumiller of the New York Times posed this question to Kerry: "President Bush has said that freedom and fear have always been at war, and God is not neutral between them. He's made quite clear in his speeches that he feels God is on America's side. "Is God on America's side?" Kerry's answer snubbed Christians. Kerry clearly preferred to side with secularists.

As a presidential candidate, Kerry's comments are fraught with meaning for the future of America. Kerry worships abortion, the lawless homosexual agenda, and the stripping away of every Christian symbol in America. Kerry is against everything believers stand for.

Kerry's hesitancy about The Passion is troubling. He cannot say a good word about a film that everyone knows is changing the course of American history (please see Addendum below). Kerry could have assured the millions of Christians pouring into theatres to see the film that their concerns were important to him.

Instead, Kerry kowtows to a tiny minority of secularists, the very same groups that have demeaned American culture. Kerry is appealing to the lowest common denominator, a tiny secular minority, a ragtag cadre of naysayers who are working to demonize Mel Gibson and the film. Kerry is pandering to secularists in order to get campaign dollars and voting blocs.

Kerry is appealing first and foremost to the Hollywood types who fear they will lose their chokehold on American culture. Secular liberals have vastly profited from the anti-Christian culture and would prefer to keep Christians subdued and their beliefs marginalized.

Kerry's ill-conceived remarks demonstrate that he will strengthen secularist power over Christian America. Kerry's comments and his positions on social issues must reach every Christian pastor, church, and group in America.

(1) Kerry's comments about The Passion movie have effectively disqualified him from holding the highest office in Christian America.

(2) Transparently anti-Christian candidates do not deserve Christian votes.

(3) Candidates carrying Bibles and going to church (the Clintons) but who vote against everything Christians believe in are not going to fool Christians again as they have in the past.

(4) Defending human life, preserving the sacred institution of marriage, displaying Christian symbols in American life, are important issues and must be addressed.

(5) The future of America depends on which candidate supports Christian issues. Kerry has demonstrated that he need not apply.

The article (below) outlines Hollyweird's plans to steal the election by slandering Christians; it must reach as many Christians as possible before election day so that Christians are well-informed of the attacks being made on them.

Kerry and secular Hollywood's elitist contempt for Christian America must not go unchallenged.

Below is the link to a web site that lists ministries by state (just one of hundreds of thousands of Christian ministry websites).

Secular Hollywood may control the media through anti-Christian TV, movies and music production........but we control the internet, and that's where it counts.

HOLLYWOOD TARGETS CHRISTIAN REPUBLICANS THIS FALL April 7, 2004 | Dr. Tom Snyder

Posted on 04/07/2004 6:08:03 PM PDT by Simi Valley Tom

Not content with slandering Mel Gibson, the Bible, and Jesus Christ, the media elite are now gearing up to slander even more religious and political figures who profess Jesus Christ as their divine savior.

For example, according to the April 5 issue of VARIETY, Harry and Linda Thomason, two of former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary’s buddies in Hollywood, are making a movie that will slam those Christians and Republicans who helped the GOP gain control of the United States Congress and stymie the radical liberal, atheist agenda of the Clintons and their supporters.

Furthermore, radical maniac Michael Moore, whose phony documentary BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE stole an Oscar for “Best Documentary” in 2003, is finishing his new propaganda movie, this time focusing his attention on the religious, moral, and political convictions of President George Bush.

Finally, filmmaker John Sayles is wrapping up a fictional satire of America’s political system that focuses on a bumbling scion of a conservative political dynasty who’s running for governor in Colorado.

All three of these movies are due to be released this fall, just in time to affect the upcoming November elections.

All three of these movies are also scheduled to coincide with another political “documentary,” one that will focus on the political career of (guess who?) likely Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.

Finally, all three of these movies once again demonstrate the principle that whoever controls the media controls the culture and elects the politicians who appoint the judges who shape our political, social, and legal rules and laws.

Looking at this new wave of leftist propaganda from Hollywood, it is interesting to note that, in the last two months, during the height of the controversy over Mel Gibson’s THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, one columnist of the LOS ANGELES TIMES, Patrick Goldstein, not only took slanderous potshots at Gibson and the apostles of Jesus Christ (the authors of the New Testament), but also complained, in other columns on other subjects, about “right-wing religious nuts” and compared Christian evangelicals in the United States to the Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan and Al-Qaeda!

Pity the poor schmucks (like you and me, or President Bush and the Republicans) who try to stand up against this left-wing, atheist, hateful media juggernaut barreling down upon us.

In light of all this, it’s no surprise that reports from Hollywood suggest several more new movies will come out later this year and next that will attack Christians, Christian theology, and religion. Only our guard against promoting unfounded rumors prevents us from naming the titles of these upcoming movies. Even if we knew for sure that these movies are going to be Christophobic, we may not want to name their titles anyway, for fear of drumming up even more business for them.

Whatever the case, however, and whatever happens come this November, we must not be afraid to take a strong stand against the atheist, radical, Christophobic elite in Hollywood who oppose all that is good, just, and right. As 1 John 4:4 says, greater is the One who is in us than the one who is in the world.

There is no neutrality in the Culture Wars surrounding us at this time in the United States and around the world. Either those of us who depend on the Word of God, the Bible, the Holy Spirit, and the transcendent values of Christianity and Western Civilization will prevail, or the anti-Christian bigots and their demonic hordes will win the day.

The Good News is that Jesus Christ Himself is in our corner, guiding us (and all men) into the Light that overcomes all darkness.

“If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31.

Kerry's move was ill-timed. His hate-Christians stance might have flown a year ago. But the world has changed, and Kerry doesn't get it.

The entire world is in the throes of Christian renewal.

One of the news sements reported churches were filled to capacity Easter Sunday b/c of the resounding success of The Passion film. One LA church that holds 4000 was SRO for 4-5 consecutive services.....they had to add services to accomodate all those who wanted to attend.

The demands of this age are extraordinary:
to meet them, extraordinary men and women are required.

There is no reason, no motivation, no "reward"
for which these people - and you and I - will make this age succeed.

There is just our humanity - and the stand that we are.
"Of those to whom much is given, much is required."*

Can those of us in Fly-over Country protect those in New Sodom and New Gomorrah along the East and Left Coasts?

I think not, not to their majorities' foolish demands. Who among them has the time and energy to fight islam's war crimes Terror War when one's money and government benefits buy more obsession than is humanly possible.

Which would a Democrat leader/activist/apparatchik rather do: sodomize again or fight islamists to the death?

L.A.'s designated islamist nuke will be so inconvenient for the Hollywood stars, turned to charcoal during their daily lives - and deaths. Islamists can even know where the gay pride sodomites party.

IMO, look for kidnappings here. Islamists proudly make war; read their haddith to see how.

>> God is on America's side

I always thought it to be utterly pompous for one to suggest what side God would take. I mean, I could try my best to be on God's side, but to suggest God's on my side? That's going a bit too far, I think.

Free Republic Piranhasize's the Left:

The Secular Left would gladly overturn a religious and sacred society < Christianity is in our soil> and to substitute a Profane culture which will still rely on new myths they have created . This is simply A Will To Power by them. New cultural politics practiced by the 'New Radical Left' are a product of postmodernity and poststructural literary theory which permeates academia.

"Poststructuralism uses language to subvert otherwise traditionally accepted truth claims; claims that traditionally have stabilized American social and made unstable some of European socities.

New Left Postmodernism is a culture that creates myths in order to subvert conventional perceptions of reality and truth which they believe a matter of perspective and shifting.

Christian Terrorism?
FrontPageMagazine.com | June 4, 2003 ^ | June 4, 2003 | Lowell Ponte

Posted on 04/12/2004 1:08:43 PM PDT by Grampa Dave

Christian Terrorism? By Lowell Ponte FrontPageMagazine.com | June 4, 2003

"IS HE A ‘CHRISTIAN TERRORIST’?" That is the question raised by Washington Post Staff Writer Alan Cooperman this week about just-arrested Eric Robert Rudolph, the alleged bomber of the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics and an Alabama abortion clinic.

"If Christians take umbrage at the juxtaposition of the words ‘Christian’ and ‘terrorist,’" Idaho State University sociologist James A. Aho told Cooperman, "that may give them some idea of how Muslims feel" when hearing the term "Islamic terrorism."

"Based on what we know of Rudolph so far, and admittedly it’s fragmentary, there seems to be a fairly high likelihood that he can legitimately be called a Christian terrorist," says Michael Barkun, described by Cooperman as "a professor of political science at Syracuse University who has been a consultant to the FBI on Christian extremist groups."

The FBI that was too busy raiding a New Orleans brothel to put together the telltale clues it possessed that could have prevented the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center? The FBI had time to focus on Christian groups?

President Bill Clinton’s administration devoted vast law enforcement resources to monitoring Christian groups. In August 1994, to cite but one example among many, Attorney General Janet Reno launched VAAPCON, the Violence Against Abortion Providers Conspiracy, that directed the activities of the FBI, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, U.S. Postal Inspectors and U.S. Marshalls.

VAAPCON was justified as a way to stop "terrorist" violence against abortion clinics, and such deadly violence has certainly happened. Rudolph will first be tried in the case of an Alabama abortion clinic bombing that killed one off-duty police officer, and he would not be the first human to justify hatreds in the name of religion. (His opposition to abortion reportedly is linked to Rudolph’s belief that white mothers aborting their babies is genocide against the white race.)

But VAAPCON, like so many Clinton police state operations, also justified government surveillance of any and every group opposed to abortion or other politically-correct Leftist policies supported by the Clintons.

A 1969 Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch obtained hundreds of pages of Justice Department documents. These revealed that VAAPCON had been invoked to authorize spying on at least 900 groups and individuals. Its targets ranged from the Reverend Jerry Falwell and Feminists for Life to the National Rifle Association and the Christian Coalition.

VAAPCON was also used to spy on the U.S. Bishops’ Conference of the Roman Catholic Church. A large share of its targets were explicitly Christian organizations, groups and individuals.

"What in the world are Janet Reno, Hillary, Bill, and their VAAPCON task force doing using law-enforcement personnel to infiltrate, collect, and assemble database information of this type?" asked Judicial Watch general counsel Larry Klayman. "We were told by one source that some in the FBI objected to the monitoring of these groups on legal and ethical grounds but were overruled by upper levels at Justice."

Why, for example, did the Clintons and Janet Reno use VAAPCON to create a database on the late, beloved Roman Catholic Cardinal John O’Connor of New York?

"It wasn’t the inclusion of suspected criminals or the inclusion of old files on such activities that we objected to," one senior FBI agent told the journal Insight. "It was the collection of political and personal information on people such as the cardinal that many of us found objectionable…. This is obviously political in nature and something we work hard to avoid."

The Clinton Administration, you will recall, collected at least 900 confidential FBI files on its political enemies such as Tony Blankley, once a top member of House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s staff and now an editor at the Washington Times. The Clintons also used private detectives to dig dirt that could be used to blackmail or discredit any who might limit their power.

It is fair to say that for eight years the Clintons waged war against religion in general and Christianity in particular. The Clinton Equal Employment Opportunity Commission set about making "religious harassment" a crime in the workplace comparable to racial or sexual harassment. This could mean that a manager who wore a cross or yarmulke or kept a Bible on her desk could be punished with crushing EEOC fines.

Hillary is rumored to have tried but failed to have the Postal Service stop issuing its traditional Madonna and Child stamps around Christmastime. An FBI agent who served in their White House has written that the Clintons’ upstairs Christmas tree, unseen by the public, was one year decorated with sex and drug paraphernalia such as condoms and heroin syringes. This helps us understand Bill and Hillary’s attitude towards Christianity.

Clinton Press Secretary Joe Lockhart during a December 16, 1999, press briefing described the Southern Baptist Convention – the very Protestant faith to which Bill Clinton has said he belongs – as an organization that perpetuates "ancient religious hatred." Southern Baptists, in other words, were a "hate group," and this justified their being infiltrated and put under government surveillance.

The IRS under Clinton removed the tax-exempt status of one Christian church in New York that had publicly criticized the President’s morals. And while VAAPCON supposedly targeted only those who might threaten abortion providers, in fact every one of its targets was politically opposed to the Clintons and at least some of their Leftist policies.

The political information gathered by VAAPCON laid a basis for future political attacks and persecution against the Religious Right, and in particular against the Christian Right.

(The surveillance of Christians during the Clinton regime was at least as intense as that now directed at potential terrorists by today’s Attorney General John Ashcroft…and for which the Left without ceasing accuses Mr. Ashcroft of being a totalitarian out to destroy American liberty. These same Leftists said not a peep about President Clinton’s police state tactics against Christian groups and individuals.)

History records similar attacks against Christians. In 64 A.D., after a fire burned down three-quarters of the city of Rome, the Emperor Nero to deflect attention from tales that he had started the fire to clear space for a bigger palace and then "fiddled" while it burned, needed a scapegoat. Nero – whose name in Jewish numerology is 666 – blamed the fire on a small Jewish cult in Rome called Christians.

These Christians were weird and secretive, Nero almost certainly told angry crowds and the Roman Senate. They practiced ritual cannibalism, drinking the blood and eating the flesh of their divine leader in the form of wine and bread, a ritual that many Roman pagans found shocking. And they were a doomsday cult that looked forward to the end of the world.

A handful of Christian leaders were rounded up and tortured until they named others, who in turn were tortured. Within days Nero was martyring thousands of Christians as blazing torches or as food for wild beasts or by crucifixion in the Circus Maximus below what the fire had left of his palace.

"An immense multitude was convicted," wrote the Roman historian Tacitus (Annals, 15:44) of these Christians killed by Nero, "not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against mankind."

In other words, Christians under Nero as under Bill Clinton were hunted because, as one Christian journalist noted, they were declared by the ruler to be guilty of the crime of "hate."

The Public Broadcasting Service, PBS, recently made the intriguing argument that the Emperor Nero was right to persecute Christians. (PBS, as Public Broadcasters of Socialism, always agreed with Clinton and did all in their power to undermine the Christian Right and its values.)

In its history series "Secrets of the Dead," PBS cited the research of German scholar Gerhard Baudy of the University of Konstanz showing that many Christians in 64 A.D. Rome were indeed a doomsday cult.

These Christians, says Professor Baudy, were circulating vengeful apocalyptic texts predicting that a raging inferno would reduce Rome to ashes. "In all of these oracles," says Baudy on the PBS show, "the destruction of Rome by fire is prophesied. That is the constant theme: Rome must burn. This was the long-desired objective of all the people who felt subjugated by Rome."

These ancient Roman Christians, speculates Baudy, would also have been familiar with a widely-circulated Egyptian prophecy that the great evil city would fall on the day that the "dog star" Sirius (namesake of summer being known as the "dog days") first rises. In 64 A.D., notes Baudy, Sirius first rose on July 19, the very day the great fire of Rome began. If Christians did not set the original fire, surmises Baudy, some of their number almost certainly set additional fires to expand the conflagration.

Eric Robert Rudolph was no true follower of the teacher Christians revere as the Prince of Peace. How could an anti-Semite and white supremacist accept a Jew like Jesus? Klu Klux Klansmen also claim to uphold the sign of the cross – but their purpose is to burn it to advance their own racist collectivism.

Leftists also want to burn down the cross, or immerse it in urine or splatter the image of Mary with elephant dung, so that Christianity is weakened as a competing faith to their pseudo-religious cult of Marxism. Watch closely and see how the Leftist media raises up the image of Rudolph as a "Christian terrorist" as its latest tactic to damage and discredit Christianity.

New Left Postmodernism is a culture that creates myths in order to subvert conventional perceptions of reality and truth......New cultural politics practiced by the 'New Radical Left' are a product of postmodernity and poststructural literary theory which permeates academia.

......as well as print and broadcast media, the arts, the professions, some religious sects, and so on.....

Now we restart the cultural engine with this Statement of Principles. Where we are right now, in this moment, in this medium, is the new reality. Intellectualized objectve truth will win the battle that is being unleashed on secularists.

The primeval power of Christian renewal cannot be stopped. We are taking back the culture, on our terms.

The post modernist movement is null and void. Kerry's alliance with secularists is ill-timed. The world has changed; the Kerry people still don't get it, to their everlasting regret.

Leftists' visceral antagonism toward Christianity will incur serious social, political and cultural consequences.

FR SWAT TEAM MOTTO

Cicero observed: "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gate is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very hall of government itself… he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist."

Thnaks for this ping list. The Truth is worth fighting for. Many Democrats are finding the truth much harder to come by.

Thanks for that quote, Liz. My dad's middle name was Cicero, named after that incredible man.

Thanks for that quote, Liz. My dad's middle name was Cicero, named after that incredible man.

Your grandparents must have had an affinity for ancient history.

Cicero was born on January 3, 106 BC and was murdered on December 7, 43 BC. His life coincided with the decline and fall of the Roman Republic, and he was an important actor in many of the significant political events of his time (and his writings are now a valuable source of information to us about those events).

Cicero was, among other things, an orator, lawyer, politician, and philosopher. Making sense of his writings and understanding his philosophy requires us to keep that in mind.

He placed politics above philosophical study; the latter was valuable in its own right but was even more valuable as the means to more effective political action.

The only periods of Cicero's life in which he wrote philosophical works were the times he was forcibly prevented from taking part in politics.

I wonder how Cicero would have assessed contemporary American politics.

"I wonder how Cicero would have assessed contemporary American politics."

Oh, Mercy! My head spins when I think what my dad would say, much less Cicero. I imagine both of them would be stunned to find that we've learned so little in so much time, with so many fine examples. A couple years ago, I got to write about my dad on FR for one of Billie's Finest columns. He had uncanny political sense and a mind filled with history that I've never quite seen matched.

That's not so far-fetched. I'm betting you will see less of Kerry and more of his surrogates out on the campaign trail. His speaking style simply does not inspire voter confidence.

The bottom line with Kerry is.....I never feel like the guy believes what he is saying....he is just saying it...appeasing whoever is in front of him. So, it would follow that anyone could fill in for him on the campaign trail.....Howdy Doody would be more interesing at this point....
