Tuesday’s deadly blast in Lebanon is another strike for Republican Foreign Policy

I recall your attention to the Syrian Crisis where when the Obama Administration moved carriers to a more strategic position but held off on launching rockets and planes because for the first time, Russia backed off and the leader of Syria finally admitted to having nuclear weapons.  This was seen by Republicans as a “lack of leadership” and their only proposal was to arm the rebels.  Media fell right into line with the Republican’s view and helped to promote this vision.  What they refused to look toward was the complete picture and thank God we have an administration in the White House that was not so quick to arm the rebels but to take it slow.
Proof of why this really was a smart strategy can be found in an article titled “Deadly blasts near Iran’s embassy in Lebanon linked to Syrian war, sectarian divisions” written by Loveday Morris and Ahmed Ramadan, with an assist from William Booth in Jerusalem and Suzan Haidamous in Beirut.    This article states that At least 23 people are d…

The Hierarchy of Power

In the beginning before the earth and everything in it was formed, there was heaven as we know it to be.  A place where existed God, Our Father also referred to as the Holy Spirit; his son Jesus Christ his most trusted of children called Arch angels and a whole host of lesser but just as important other angels.  Within this Eden, there was a conflict brewing where one of those most trusted Lucifer better known as Satan was attempting to unseat his father and take over the throne.  One the other side of that was Michael, a strong believer and defender of his father.  Every negotiating tactic attempted by God to settle his child Satan met to no avail and the conflict was on.  This was the time God decided to create another group of children who he thought would devote and cherish only him forever.   Then there was Adam deposited into another Garden of Eden later joined by Eve.  After the war was over, God had a choice to make.  He could completely destroy his child Satan or exile him.  …

Journalism Laziness the new catch phrase for media failure

In an article written by Eric Lach for TPM MUCKRAKER titled “Obamacare Foe Sneaks Back Into Media As Just A Regular Guy”, Columbia Journalism Review’s Ryan Chittum coined a phrase that I believe defines many in America, even though it greatly fits our once accomplished reporters, journalists and commentators.  The article was about a man who appeared all over the media circuit claiming to only be just a regular businessman complaining about how Obamacare was damaging his business when in fact he had ties with the very organization “the Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), a conservative, pro-business group that, among other things, was a ferocious opponent of Obamacare. (The NFIB was part of the multi-state lawsuit that challenged the constitutionality of the health care law.)”.  In other words the cornerstone of real journalism, the need for full disclosure, was ignored by those trusted to bring us all the news without bias.  They failed and failed mightily which lead us to t…

Another Child Dies while Mother, Father and Activists Stands by

Far be it for me to cast dispersion on anyone, Lord knows I have plenty of skeletons in my closet but when I hear any story about a child not being allowed to mature and grow because of some idiotic lunatic and their supporters, I cannot sit quietly.  This is the case with what has been reported by one of our local television stations WREX (Rockford, IL).
The article is quoted as saying “A 40-year-old Rockford man has been found guilty in the beating death of his girlfriend's three-year-old daughter.  Duran Johnson was found guilty of two counts of first degree murder Wednesday. He was also found guilty of concealing a homicide and intimidation. However, he was found not guilty of aggravated battery toward victim Kaitlyn Head's two surviving sisters. He faces a maximum of 100 years in prison.  Head's mother, Melanie Grant, pleaded guilty earlier this year to beating her daughter but claimed Johnson was the one who ultimately killed her.  A forensic pathologist showed Head s…

Dispelling the Myth of Who can be called as a Voice of God

There is a group of people who are strong believers in the rumors that only those selected can call themselves or ever be recognized as a voice for God.  They think that you need to possess a degree or diploma or be anointed by other men.  While in the past this was also my belief it is not so now and had I not stumbled upon this revelation, I would still be pushing this lie. Who can be called as a voice of God, anyone with a very strong desire to spread the “Good News” and the convictions to endure all of the pain and suffering that will comes from doing so.  Yes that means you and you do not need any piece of paper to do so.  Forget the labels and remember the sacrifice.
If you believe so strongly in the Old Testament and often quote it to prove your point of how God feels about everything, you must also be willing to accept the entire Old Testament as the true path to perfection and not just a few verses here and there to make you appear like you really know what you are talking abo…
