    Yeah. Make them make a bunch of signs that say “Homosexuality is perversion”.

    And how about California? Don’t they discriminate against gays who want therapy to cure homosexuality? If psychologists are going to offer any “therapy” shouldn’t they have to offer whatever therapy the customer wants?

    Where does the Civil Rights Commission get its authority to tell anybody what they can and can’t do? And where can we see the names of the people who made this ruling?

    Somebody should sue PETA for not serving up hamburgers if they have any fundraisers/events that involve food.

    Or sue Muslim business owners who won’t sell pork.


    I didn’t see anything in this article, other than the title, that mentioned re-education. But if I was in the area I would go with him to re-education and would speak my mind. They’d be begging me to leave by the time it was done. And if they wouldn’t let me be there I’d sue them for discrimination.

    Probably so, but they’re telling judges it’s for drugs, homicide, and/or smuggling. God knows people who smuggle things into the US bring them first to Nebraska this great landlocked state. And everybody knows we’ve got more murders here than in Chicago or Florida. And drugs? Never mind that there are probably more people in Chicago than in the whole state of Nebraska - CLEARLY the Nebraska ranchers are the ones dealing the drugs...

    So I presume that this gal and Elijah Cummings would say that the executive branch has no business spying on the Congressional coat room and any other spying that the executive office may be doing on the other branches of government?

    If they claim “national security” as the reason for executive branch spying and usurpation of Constitutional freedoms, then they should be aware that the Constitution gives the responsibility of national security to CONGRESS, not to the executive branch. So if ANYBODY could justifiably be spying on anybody else, it would be at the direction of CONGRESS, not the POTUS.

  • Growing concern in US: 'kissing bug' disease

    07/28/2014 7:35:01 PM PDT · 12 of 24
    butterdezillion to ClearCase_guy

    The insect is called the “kissing bug”. As far as I can tell from the article the disease isn’t contagious but is spread through this insect, although the article said that pregnant mothers can pass it on to their babies in the womb.

    I wonder if that insect is being brought in with the Latinos who come here. I wonder if the bug has to bite somebody with the disease and then bite another person, or if the bug has the disease in it already and gives it to whoever it bites. Or do just some of those bugs have the disease in it?

    The article wasn’t very clear, to me.

    I think it’s way past time for somebody to read directly from Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven’s “Strategy of Manufactured Crisis” describing how a flood of illegals is to help overload the system in order to destroy America from within - to be replaced by communism.

    I think it’s time for somebody to show the webpages in which The New Party (co-founded by Piven to carry out that strategy) said that Obama was a member of their party.

    I think it’s time for somebody to read from Cloward and Piven’s plan how they needed a lawyer to push the federal Motor Voter Law into superceding state election laws, to enable elections to be controlled - and then to point out that it was Barack Obama who filed the lawsuit doing that.

    I think it’s time for somebody to read from Cloward and Piven’s plan how they needed somebody to harass banks into subprime lending so that the free market would be forced into being a welfare agency and through that to be destroyed, collapsing the US economy. And I think it’s time for somebody to point out that the lawyer who harassed banks into subprime lending was Barack Obama.

    It’s way past time for the people of Boston and every other city in this country to realize that the chaos that is being wrought upon us right now was planned 30 years ago by Obama’s pals, and he has been the one carrying out the foundational work to get us where we’re at now. This is a deliberate invasion, intended to destroy America. And Obama has been a part of that plan since its inception, and has surrounded himself his whole life long with the people who devised, supported, and implemented that plan - all with the EXPRESSED PURPOSE of destroying America.

    butterdezillion to BeadCounter; Trevor Loudon

    That’s the Cloward-Piven Plan in a nutshell.

    Some member of Congress should read straight from the Cloward-Piven Plan how immigration was supposed to be used to destroy the country. And then they should show the records showing that Obama was a signed member of The New Party, co-founded by Francis Fox Piven to carry out those goals...

    And then they should say that those things suggest that the invasion we’re experiencing was planned out 30 years ago and will be brought to completion if Obama signs an executive order - which will constitute an act of war against the United States of America.

    Was it Trevor Loudon who brought forward the webpages (hidden under a couple layers of the web)which showed Obama as a signed member of The New Party? My computers have crashed so many times since then that I can’t find the links.

    butterdezillion to stanne

    I think my comment was probably more for the people who excuse the Congress-critters’ fears because there’s always one more election/hurdle to overcome first, before anything can be done - because if anything is ever done, the next election will be a rout.

    At some point the buzzer is gonna go off and the time to score all the baskets will be past. Obama’s lawlessness is an immediate existential threat RIGHT NOW. He’s armed, trained, and allowed our enemies into this country in full view of everyone. The WMD that ends this nation may already have come through the border - or it might be en route from Venezuela even as we speak... Who knows whether there will even be a 2016 election - whether the nation will survive that long? The “tomorrow” everybody says we have to wait for before acting may never come if we don’t act now.

    I’m sure that some of the members of Congress want to be smart about the timing of their efforts, to give it the best chance. And that’s the concern with many here as well. There are also moles planted here to make arguments that sound good, but are geared to demoralize us, as KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov said is the plan of America’s enemies. But I think that people need to be aware of the existential urgency, and not automatically assume that there will be 2016 elections, given the speed at which Obama is moving with his new “flexibility”.

    Stockman said the House should take away any money Obama needs for this crap.

    Face it, as long as we have a treasonous media the politicians will ALWAYS be afraid to do what this country needs, because there will always be an urgent election that the media can deceive the public about.

    The underlying crime that Obama’s puppet-masters did, that enabled all these other crimes, was to threaten the media with annihilation if they allowed real reporting to happen. Initially that threat, in Oct of 2008, was against news media and talk shows if they allowed Obama’s ineligibility and Muslim leanings to be reported, but once the puppet-masters found that worked, they can say the same thing on any issue they please.

    The most dangerous weapon our enemies have against us is our own ignorant electorate, which provides cover for elections to be stolen. As long as a large part of our population listens to and believes the lying media, the nation is headed for destruction.

    I was at my parents’ house for a few days last week. They know Scott Pelley and all his comrades are liars but it’s the only news they can get, since they don’t do internet. So many times I mentioned news that they hadn’t heard. Not in the newspapers, not on the radio, not on the tube. It was a little bit like the “Gilligan’s Island” episode where a Japanese soldier comes to the island and doesn’t know that WWII is over. Scott Pelley can get voters to vote for the guy who’s going to end WWII - because they hid the war’s end from all their listeners. Two worlds in the USA today - the haves and the have-not’s, with KNOWLEDGE being the thing one side has and the other doesn’t.

    This morning I mentioned to my husband the headline about deadly disease in MA being spread by mosquitos. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong but my understanding is that when a mosquito bites somebody with a deadly disease the mosquito carries that disease and spreads it to the next person it bites. So a person can get whatever communicable diseases these people have just by being outside.

    My husband’s response was, “Well, that’s really cheerful news.”

    This is biological warfare against the people of the USA - against those who are here legally AND against those here illegally. This is the polar opposite of compassion.

    There are already 2 different stories - one claiming he was fine until after he got in the ambulance, which is an absurd claim. If any of these cops performed CPR on him when he went unresponsive and lost a heartbeat, this story would have been told a LOT differently.

    You do rescue breathing if the person has a pulse but isn’t breathing; if the heart stops you add compressions. These cops would have known that. There is no excuse for this man to die without any efforts to save him. NO EXCUSE.

    Even if that were true, not one cop there would do CPR on a person having a heart attack? Why know CPR if you’re never going to use it?

    Geez, the lengths the government will go to, to make sure everybody pays taxes. Oh, wait, there are lots of people who don’t pay their taxes. Like most of the enemy-combatant-in-chief’s cabinet... and a LOT of the people who voted for him...

    How DARE this guy think he could be a small business that evades the tax penalties on small businesses by selling individual items rather than packs! That is the ultimate crime, that will get you the death penalty by cop. God knows with all the crimes out there, this is the one that requires a gang of cops to apply brute force and then watch the guy die without doing CPR.

    The perp was a neighbor, like a member of the family. Had been abusing this 11-year-old since the boy was 9. Admitted he had sexually abused the boy and said, “I’m guilty.”

    I hope he truly believes that, repents, and gets help. What the Dad did may help him toward that end. Considering the cycle of abuse, I can’t help but wonder if/when the perp was violated himself.

    And I hope what the Dad did helps the 11-year-old to know he is loved and protected, and that helps him heal. Two years of that abuse without anybody knowing; it’s got to be tough.

    The police response that no charges would be filed because it was a dad being a dad will also hopefully send a message to any would-be imitators.

    I am a fairly calm person, but if anybody tried doing that to one of my kids and the only way I could stop them was with my fists, that’s exactly what I’d do.

    They know they’ve got people who will ridicule anybody who points out what really shows up in the video. It’s a critical piece of their puzzle.

    And they know they’ve got people who will censor the information from getting visibility in places it’s likely to be taken seriously. Another critical piece of the puzzle.

    Crooks are crooks, and there will always be crooks. The lawlessness we’ve got today is because the people who are supposed to expose and stop the crooks won’t. Those are the people who hold America’s future in their hands. Those are the people who are on trial right now. We get the government we deserve, and God has intervened to make sure that everyone will have a chance to see the truth. If the people of America see that they are returning to their vomit and do it anyway, there will be no reason for the Lord to spare this country what is coming. He’s giving us a chance to reject the path we’ve taken - those who cover for the crimes of the regime.

    If OUR apathy keeps us from getting our Congress members to do anything even after Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS-gate, NSA-gate, Extortion 17, Boston Marathon cover-up, and UAC-gate - followed by the evidence Arpaio is going to bring forward - then we deserve all that lawlessness, and it will kill us and the country.

    They will probably end up in my town, which is known at “Little Mexico”. The school/community boasts that they ask no questions. Depending on how young they are, they may end up in my after-school program.

    I love the kids we have and I think most of them love/like me too, because I love to give whatever I can. I have no idea who is legal and who isn’t. And I wish them all well. Every last one of them, and they know it.

    But it is just wrong for these kids to be used as political pawns for Obama’s agenda of destroying this country. What needs to happen is for somebody to help these poor countries to prosper, and help them to fight off the corruption that makes it dangerous to live there. There are private groups working on those things - including an active group from our town. What’s being spent to take care of these unattended kids for even a small while could build a house for that child’s whole family. But that’s not the priority.

    Instead of these families being helped to have a sustainable life where they’re at, they’re coming here for Obama’s expressed purpose (in his New Party history/membership) of making this country’s economy collapse (getting rid of our prosperity so we can have communism instead) and making the place lawless. That doesn’t help these kids and families, nor does it help us. The only ones who benefit are the communists and Islamists who will be at the top of the heap when the dust clears.

    And that sickens me. It is the OPPOSITE of prosperity and hope. It is death.

    He did that within an hour of receiving a phone call from Obama.

    Bush did a 180 on that same day and gave an address to the nation saying that Armageddon was upon us if we didn’t pass TARP.

    Kevin Freeman has written a book strongly suggesting that the Sept 2008 run on the bank was a terrorist attack, and that Muslims and communists had long been preparing the foundation for just such an attack to be effect, through the actions of a corrupt Congress.

    McCain is bad news, but I do believe there was something in what Obama told McCain that day - and in what somebody told Bush that day - that told them that resistance was futile. I believe someone communicated on that day that the electronic run on the bank was planned by Soros and his allies and that they would do it again and collapse the entire world economy unless Obama was allowed to illegally usurp our White House.

    And I believe there were OTHER CRITICAL people who were also threatened - either with threats of financial collapse, or with more personal threats...

    My daughter pulled me aside just a little bit ago. She was wanting some assurance that she wouldn’t fall away from the faith. Asked if we could have Bible study and not just the family devotions. So we got out our Bibles and we read some of the promises - how nothing can separate us from His love, and how there is no condemnation for us. How He who began a good work in us is able to bring it to completion at the day of our Lord Jesus Christ...

    It always comes back to Him. We can afford to have faith, no matter how things seem to our own eyes, because He is good. Just like you said.

    I am so sorry if it sounded like I was saying your faith is weak. I feel so much tiredness in and around me, on the board here, and in people going about their tasks. We do hope. But we’re also tired. Faith keeps us hanging on, though, and God uses tired people too. We’ll keep doing what we can, hoping for the best (as you said), and wait and see what God does with our loaves and fishes. =)

    When we’re depressed and think there’s no point in trying, we need to just DO IT ANYWAY. A body at rest tends to stay at rest and a body in motion tends to stay in motion. That’s why depression/demoralization is a vicious circle. You don’t feel like doing anything so you don’t do anything so you don’t feel like doing anything...

    Faith is believing in what is unseen at the time. Farmers (like my dad and brothers) live by faith every day of their lives. Those dead seeds and cold ground make it seem a waste of time to get out of the warm house and go into the muddy mess, and the seeds if they do come up may get hailed on, may be killed by draught, may cost too much to harvest because of EPA rules and taxes, etc.... It would be very easy to say nothing will ever come of all the work. The Bible says we will see a harvest - if we don’t give up.

    None of us FEELS like our efforts will be successful. Obama and his thugs and minions are very, very good at one thing: killing, stealing, and destroying, all to make us give up. It is the devil’s work, after all. We have been targeted just as surely as if a tazer was used on us to stop us. It is no wonder we all feel this way.

    But if we just keep putting one foot in front of another, eventually our feelings will catch up to our faith. In “Princess Bride” Inigo Montoya thinks he’s dying, stabbed in the gut by Count Rugen. When Rugen calls him pathetic and tries to give him the fatal stab, Inigo instinctively puts out his sword to stop it. No energy, just sheer instinct. And it repeats. But as he brandishes his sword Inigo begins to forget his wound, his tiredness, and his failure - and remembers what he was living the last decades of his life for.

    The chances of Lerner actually being placed in jail are as great as our faithfulness in putting one foot in front of another and planting seeds when the dirt is cold. It is not Lerner who is on trial. It is not Obama. It is we who are on trial. God is finding out what we are made of. This country is ours for the taking - if we will. If we won’t, we have nobody to blame but ourselves. Not the clueless people with their EBT cards, because they don’t know any better. Us.

    If we step out in faith, God will take us the rest of the way we need to go. I’ve already seen it happen. And just today I saw another answer to a very specific prayer I prayed, pleading for help. There is no way anybody can convince me that we are alone in this battle. I’ve seen far too much of God’s amazing power and wisdom to believe that for a second - except when I’m tired and forget to look up.

    Let’s all look up, and keep putting one foot in front of the other, ESPECIALLY when we think it will get us nowhere.

    Should a private citizen who lies before Congress and/or withholds records, destroys records, tells her staff to be careful what they say in emails because they may be subpoenaed, etc.... get away scott-free because the regime who appointed her does CYA on all their criminal thugs?

    Why would it make a difference whether she was a private citizen, or whatever? If she’s committed a crime that obstructs the only justice the rest of us have any chance of getting, then I cannot think of it as a bad thing for her to get what she’s got coming. OTOH I DO think it is a bad thing for her to sit there grinning with her secure pension while she p!sses all over us, our representatives, and the rule of law.

    It’s been a crazy-busy day. My window with an earlier response I was writing closed on me so I don’t know what I’ve said already or not, but maintaining the CHECKS and BALANCES is critical, and anytime ANY branch is “untouchable” we can be absolutely positively and in all other ways sure that they will overgrow themselves and trample the people, the Constitution, and the rule of law. When that happens, you fight fire with fire, because fire is the only thing strong enough to stop another fire.

    It is blatantly obvious that the executive branch has outgrown its britches. It is “untouchable”, and we are seeing all the predictable outcomes because of that. Either we strengthen another branch to fight the executive branch, or we are screwed.

    In this particular case, the Constitution ALREADY strengthened the House for this checking power, and the reason the executive has overgrown is because the House did not TAKE SERIOUSLY the need for that check. They LET the executive take over the whole bowel. (I sure hope I already posted the bowel-bacteria analogy, or that will sound really weird. lol)

    You don’t seem to be listening. The House ALREADY has this power. The CONSTITUTION gives this power, as part of the overall system of checks and balances. When you take any of those checks out it creates an imbalance. Do you really want to take that check/power out of the Constitution without actually amending the Constitution? And you want us to believe that is conservative or Constitutional?

    Why are you so afraid of the House being able to jail somebody for refusing their subpoenas? Scooter Libby was already jailed for a crime he didn’t do, and Clinton was already not jailed for a crime he did - all without the House being involved at all. So if you’re afraid that injustice will be done by Congress, the mechanisms are already there and have been in place for a long, long time. What is the House going to do that the Senate hasn’t already done?

    Obama can already arrest and jail/detain any of us for whatever trumped-up reason he wants, without ANY due process, disclosure, charges - anything. He is the colon bacteria that is always BAD. Bad colon bacteria gets that kind of power in one way: the good bacteria gets killed/weakened. The whole point of checks and balances is to have factions of government at each others’ necks. That constant struggle keeps ANY of them from overgrowing itself.

    All it takes to destroy the checks and balances is for ONE branch to be weakened. When that happens it is a GIVEN that the bad bacteria will take over the place and will GROW THE GOVERNMENT. It will take over all the other parts of government and, unchecked, it will grow to impossible proportions.

    IOW, if you really want to stop the growth and intrusiveness of government as a whole, you HAVE to grow the branch that has been weakened beyond the ability to check the other branches.

    Impeachment is to remove a person from office, not to put them in jail. And Lois Lerner can’t be impeached; she’s already collecting her for-life pension.

    Studies have shown that lab rats will stop trying to exit a door when it’s been closed to them before - even when the door is left open. They condition themselves to believe that the door is forever shut.

    Me, I’m a cow. A cow will go through the fence any time it’s open and if it’s not open it will go OVER the fence if what’s on the other side is worth it.

    I believe the rule of law is worth it.

    And doors ARE opening. You would not BELIEVE how many things that weren’t supposed to be able to happen are actually happening but nobody has had a chance to find out about it yet.

    Obama is desperate. He is showing his fangs too early - before we’ve all been subjugated. Unless we’ve given up. Have we given up? Are we going to go out with a whimper, or stand up and fight for all we hold dear?

    This isn’t really about Obama OR about the corruptocrats in DC. It’s about us - whether we have given up on liberty, or whether we still care enough to fight. We’re down, we’re depressed. But the first step out of that is to JUST DO IT. Don’t feel like taking a walk? Do it anyway! Don’t feel like making supper? See your kids sitting there hungry and do it anyway. Don’t want to get your hopes up for the future? Plant a tree anyway. Somebody asked Martin Luther what he would do if he knew the world was ending the next day. He said he’d plant a tree. We have to keep living until we’re dead.

    Are we dead already?

    Instead all the enforcement powers - to force the GOVERNMENT to be accountable - is to be concentrated in one Attorney General?

    Exactly what is the check on the executive, in that scenario? He appoints the top cop who does legal CYA for all the crimes his regime commits, and everybody else has to sit there and take it? The executive sends people to Congressional investigations and p!sses all over the truth and all over we the people’s representatives and then laughs all the way to the bank, and nobody can do a dang thing?

    That is a recipe for revolution, right there. It’s exactly what got us the first revolution.

    This is a very specific, narrow resolution to force the Speaker to do what he is Constitutionally allowed to do - to enforce CONGRESS’ subpoenas. If one of us little people lied to Congress we’d be nailed. Would you be against that?

    The resolution says wherever Lerner’s body may be found, not just at Congress. Basically a warrant for her arrest wherever she’s at.

    And it says she’s not to be released until further action by the House, IIRC.

    The procedural ways to try to keep it from a vote - yeah, we’ll have to get past the slime on that part. But even slime can melt under extreme heat...

    But what the exit plan may not account for is two things:

    1. People are waking up. There are far more of us than there are of them. Is it 2ndDivisionVet who keeps posting “What good can a rifle do against an army”? This regime - including the R do-nothings - may well find out the answer to that question if they don’t get a clue. The invasion taking place right now, at the same time as we’re finding out that ISIS and other terrorists have been trained, armed, funded, granted access, and provided propaganda cover by this regime... is waking people up. Those of us who are awake need to take the phone lines by storm so DC KNOWS the giant has awoken.

    2. Aslan may be on the move, in Narnia terminology. Who cares if they’ve got the White Witch, if we’ve got Aslan?

    We can do something about that, though. At least a start.

    Steve Stockman has filed a resolution calling for the arrest of Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress.

    My understanding is that if this resolution passes the House, Boehner has no choice but to implement it.

    It feels good to jaw about things here, and wallow in how bad things are (I think we all appreciate being with others who recognize what’s going on, so we commiserate together, and I’m not pointing fingers specifically at anybody but rather kind of at all of us, myself included).But this is a call to action. If we really want the lawlessness to stop, then we need to do what it takes to FORCE arrests when this “selective enforcement” happens. Right now John Boehner is doing “selective enforcement” to make sure that Lois Lerner laughs all the way to the bank over the wimpy attempts of Congress to make the rule of law matter.

    We can wipe that smile right off Lerner’s face - and right off of BOEHNER’s face - as well as anybody else who may be subpoenaed to testify or provide records for House investigations of Benghazi, NSA-gate, IRS-gate, Extortion 17, Fast & Furious, Bergdahl-gate, Boston Marathon-gate, etc - if we just have the determination and foresight to storm the House’s phone lines, demanding this resolution be passed.

    Let’s do it, guys! Let’s not just b!tch. Let’s tell DC we’re sick of the play-games!

    They already have the ability to do that through the IRS, DOJ, NSA, DHS - you name it. We’ve got nothing to lose by acting. And at the same time, everything to lose by not acting.

    The Constitution specifically gives the House this ability. Why do we consider it so very dangerous to actually have it be used?

    It looks that way to me too.

    IOW, if we really want Boehner to comply with the rule of law, we need to get the House to pass this resolution.

    Pinging some people who I know have ping lists, and to my ping list. We need to get this out to everybody.

    Steve Stockman has filed a resolution calling for the arrest of Lois Lerner. If passed, it appears that Boehner would have no choice but to comply. I very seriously believe this is the first step toward ANY of the investigations getting anything done. For Lerner to sit in jail would send a HUGE message that we the people are serious and we are making our representatives truly represent us.

    I believe the number one foe we face is our own demoralization. We act as if we cannot change anything. I don’t know if we can or can’t, but I know we sure as heck can’t if we’re too defeated to try.

    And though I can’t say anything about it specifically right now, I have good reason to believe that the Lord has intervened on our behalf. There are things happening that only God can do. Never, ever, ever give up! As Elisha told his servant - open your eyes and see that those who are with us are more than those against us. The Lord is our strength and shield, and He can do what is impossible for man. A slingshot and a stone, in the hands of one willing to stand for truth and life, is MORE THAN ENOUGH.

    Let’s roll!

    Can the speaker refuse to do what a passed resolution says? Does he have discretion to be just as lawless as Obama?

    If so, maybe HE needs to be arrested...

    Here’s where everybody can find the phone number for their Representative:

    I just called Adrian Smith’s office urging him to vote for that resolution, saying none of the investigations mean anything unless there’s some “bite” to keep people accountable. The guy seemed to know immediately what I was talking about and seemed to agree.

    Stockman has provided the opportunity, now we Freepers need to put it into high gear...
