Elite K-8 school teaches white students they’re born racist

An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.

Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.

A slide from the Bank School shows the different goals for white children (right) and “kids of color” (left).

They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color” in other rooms where they’re taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges.

“Ever since Ferguson, the school has been increasing anti-white propaganda in its curriculum,” said a parent who requested anonymity because he has children currently enrolled in the school.

Bank Street has created a “dedicated space” in the school for “kids of color,” where they’re “embraced” by minority instructors and encouraged to “voice their feelings” and “share experiences about being a kid of color,” according to school presentation slides obtained by The Post.

Meanwhile, white kids are herded into separate classrooms and taught to raise their “awareness of the prevalence of Whiteness and privilege,” challenge “notions of colorblindness (and) assumptions of ‘normal,’ ‘good,’ and ‘American’” and “understand and own European ancestry and see the tie to privilege.”

The same slides point out that a number of leading private schools across the country also have segregated students by “race-based affinity groups.” It lists several in New York, including Riverdale Country School, Brooklyn Friends School, The Cathedral School, The Calhoun School, Ethical Culture Fieldston School, and Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School.

‘One hundred percent of the curriculum is what whites have done to other races. They offer nothing that would balance the story.’ 
– Anonymous Bank Street parent

Under Bank Street’s “Racial Justice and Advocacy” curriculum, parents say, teachers push white kids to grapple with America’s history of racism. Then they indoctrinate them into thinking “systemic racism” still exists, and that they’re part of the problem and must hold themselves accountable even for acts of racism committed by others.

“One hundred percent of the curriculum is what whites have done to other races,” said another Bank Street parent. “They offer nothing that would balance the story.”

Added the parent, who also asked to go unnamed: “Any questions they can’t answer they rationalize under the pretense of ‘institutional racism,’ which is never really defined.”

The program, these parents say, deliberately instills in white children a strong sense of guilt about their race. Some kids come home in tears, saying, “I’m a bad person.”

They say white kids are being brainwashed into thinking any success they achieve is unearned. Indeed, a young white girl is seen confessing on a Bank Street video: “I feel guilty for having a privilege I don’t deserve.”

Parents, moreover, say the classroom segregation only breeds resentment. Younger children, for instance, feel left out when the “kids of color” come back to the main classroom munching on cupcakes they were given in their “affinity group.”

The divisive program is run by Anshu Wahi, a longtime “social justice” activist who’s held the title of “director of diversity” at Bank Street since 2013. She referred questions to the school’s communications office, which did not respond to requests for comment.

Still, Wahi’s radical beliefs come into clear view from recorded conversations with parents, as well as handouts and emails to parents. She believes the answer to racism is teaching white kids to see race in everything — a process called “white racial socialization.”

Forget teaching them to be color-blind — that’s a cop-out, she suggests, an excuse to ignore the hardships of people of color. It’s also a “tool of whiteness” to perpetuate the “oppression” of people of color, according to one paper she recommends parents read.

Wahi believes even white babies display signs of racism, so she encourages parents to talk to their kids about race as early as kindergarten, making them hyperaware of racial differences, and even “examine your own whiteness.”

She defends segregating minority children by race by arguing they need a safe place where they can share their “ouch moments,” including subtle but offensive white comments known as “micro-aggressions.

“Bank Street wants to give kids of color a space to talk about shared experiences,” Wahi explained in a parent handout, “because even in society today, people of color are treated unfairly.”

“In the recent past,” she added, “children of color in our Lower School have been told by well-intentioned peers that their skin looks like the color of poop.”

Wahi says the school is merely empowering children of color who feel “alienated” and “devalued” in a “dominant white culture.” But some parents fear the school is nurturing resentment among minority pupils and reinforcing perceptions of victimization.

Her extreme diversity program is based on the premise that America is still plagued by “systemic racism,” which she claims she saw first-hand while serving as a juror hearing criminal cases in Brooklyn. She told parents she was shocked to learn that every case involved a minority defendant. In the same May 2015 meeting with parents, she cited the GI Bill as proof of “white privilege,” claiming the popular post-World War II legislation only benefited white soldiers and their heirs, when in fact, black enrollment in colleges exploded under the GI Bill.

Most recently, parents were upset with her airing a documentary film lionizing leaders of the violent Black Panthers movement. On May 31, the Bank Street School screened “Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution,” which depicts Panthers founder and convicted cop-killer Huey Newton as a martyr.

In 2013, moreover, parents expressed outrage over an email from Wahi that seemed to sympathize with Muslim terrorists after the Boston Marathon bombings.

The April 17, 2013, message — “From Anshu, our Director of Diversity and Community: The Boston Marathon — Another Perspective” — advised students and parents to “be mindful of stereotypes and dangerous ideas” regarding “Arabs (and) Muslims.”

It linked to an article titled “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.”

Obama’s Leftist Lens

leftist_lens_obama

My new cartoon has leaked a little early, a few fans got a little over excited about this cartoon and posted it on the /r/ The_Donald..that’s okay, it is very timely.

Here is the new Ben Garrison Cartoon “Obama’s Leftist lens”

Obama doesn’t want to say ‘Islamic Terrorism.’  It’s obvious he doesn’t want to condemn Islam in any form. He’d much rather attack the 2nd Amendment and ‘bitter clingers.’ He wants to round up the guns while at the same time, more guns have been sold to Muslims in the middle east than ever before under his administration. Hillary murdered Gaddafi and made sure ISIS got guns. That happened under Obama’s watch.

The liberal lens wants to make sure the focus and blame always goes to conservatives, whom they call names such as ‘racist’ and ‘bigot’—especially conservative Christian gun owners. Obama uses the lens to help him to avoid looking at a harsh reality—Islamic terrorists DO exist. They are created in part due to senseless war in the middle east perpetuated by Obama and his masters.

Many Muslims want Sharia Law—not our Constitution. Yet Obama wants to import millions more. If we object, we are called ‘racist.’ Islam is not a race.

Americans are fed up with excuses, obfuscation and lies told by leaders who refuse to connect with reality. Americans are sick and tired of being called ‘racist’ or other names simply because we don’t want to import millions of people who don’t assimilate well into western culture.

It’s time to put down the leftist lens when viewing reality.

HAS RENO’S TIME COME?

 Returns to Reno copyHas Reno’s time come?

 

By Mario Murillo

There have been many strange predictions about Reno.  Many of them speak of a transformation—a transformation so shocking it will change Reno’s reputation to the entire world.

When I ask if this is Reno’s time…do I mean an economic boom?   Actually I mean something much, much greater.  No one is saying more money wouldn’t help—but if all we have to look forward to is an influx of cash—Reno has little to look forward to.

Money will not take away hatred—it will finance it.  Money will not suddenly make politicians stop acting crude and rude.  Money in the hands of decent people will not stop it from getting in the hands of criminals.  Money is not going to magically heal the addictions and perversions that are degrading our culture.  Americans are miserable for reasons that go way deeper than money.  They need a miracle in their soul.

The strange predictions I mentioned point to something infinitely beyond money.   Diverse voices have prophesied that Reno would be ground zero of a moral and spiritual renaissance—an awakening.

Sparks 12

Many people believe it may have begun several weeks ago when hundreds of people met at Spirit Filled Church in Sparks.   But hundreds coming to a church is not a great revival.   Even the fact that many claimed to be healed of serious disease does not mean it is a moral awakening.

But here are the things that make me believe something has started:

-People are filled with an intense expectancy.  You walk in and you get a crackling electric feeling that something big will happen at any moment.

-The excitement keeps growing and the way people keep bringing family and friends means this is no fluke.   A contagious thing is happening…and it is not the result of hard sell guilt or marketing.   It is described in the following verses: Mark 6: 54 “And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, 55 ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. 56 Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”  They took their sick loved ones to where they heard Jesus was.  That is exactly what happened in Sparks.  They are coming because they believe that Jesus is present.

Sparks 5

-Doubters come away convinced.  The impact on the unchurched tells you that this is beyond a good meeting.   They come thinking “this is fake” and they leave knowing they will never be the same.  Pictured above is a woman who was enveloped in joint pain and other maladies and was instantly healed.   She simply could not contain her healing and jumped up and ran!

Sparks 10

However none of this matters if you do not see it for yourself.   We had to add three more meetings because of the demand.   Here is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to experience the power of God.  You will see that it is really, really possible that this is Reno’s time for something full of a power and hope that will transform this region.

Bring those you love who need a healing miracle.  Come for the greatest miracle of all to encounter Christ and know Him as Lord of all  DON’T EVEN THINK OF MISSING THESE 3 MEETINGS.

April 3 and 4 Sparks

 

 

AMERICA, IT’S NOW OR NEVER

warns

 

The Holy Spirit warns,”America, It’s now or never.

By Mario Murillo

 

Sin is one thing…but sin that is designed to provoke God is quite another.  Our leaders are now shaking their fist at God.  Our decadence is now a frenzied decadence.  At home and abroad our elected officials are hard selling immorality and false Gods.  The left is using Hollywood and the media to punish the righteous.   We have taunted God to the point that we are now seeing the result in our daily life.

The Holy Spirit–through many vessels is declaring a dire warning: “America, it’s now or never!”

Bloomberg news made this chilling statement today: “No President can save the American Economy.”    Hillary Clinton said yesterday that the leaders of the world are sternly warning America who not to vote for in our presidential election.  Universities and the media are siding with rioters and looters against the police causing a spike in crime, the lowest morale among cops in our history, and—worst of all—an end to free speech.  78% of all Americans are using or abusing prescription drugs making us the most addicted Americans in history.  No living American has seen our nation in such a terrible conditionBut that fact is but the tip of the iceberg.

America has been beaten into submission.  We are now—in the eyes of the world—a client state that must fall into line.  Until now, no nation would dare to intimidate our elections.   Billionaire George Soros openly announces he will finance demonstrations and riots.   Until now, no one could do that without being prosecuted.  Our drug addled state makes us easy prey for mass manipulation and foreign invasion.  Until now, no country in a pandemic of drugs would decriminalize even more drugs.  If America was a patient, the doctor would deliver a terrifying tale of multiple terminal conditions.   The only question left: which disease will deliver the fatal blow?  Is there any hope left for America?

IT IS NOW OR NEVER FOR AMERICA: embracing the reality of that statement is our major hope.  Whatever we are going to do—we must do now.  Don’t delude yourself into thinking we have more time.   You deceive yourself at your own peril.    Those who handle warnings carelessly, will almost certainly be fatalities in the maelstrom.

In the midst of these great horrors we are still a divided church.  This is the most jaw dropping fact of all: U.S. Christians refuse to unify.   Everything is at stake—how is this possible?  What decadent arrogance allows Christian leaders to keep building empires?  Why do they steadfastly refuse to join their brothers and sisters in the struggle to save the nation?   How can they ignore the deafening air raid siren?  What will they do if the church is driven underground and their little kingdoms are gone in an instant?

GOD SEEKS A CORE.  What has happened to America and the church is dreadful.   But just as dreadful as these things are that is how wonderful it is to know that all God needs is a core.   1 Samuel 14: 6 says, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.”

Martin Luther said, “One with God is a majority.”  Gideon proved this.  When all of Israel was dulled by immorality, and failed to rally to the cause, God honed 300 men to save the nation.  God seeks a core that will not hold back in prayer, action and sacrifice.  He seeks you.

You and I can’t wait for the church to wake up.  No pastor should stall revival in committee.  No soldier of Jesus should look for the right amount of support or a consensus.  There is nothing—and no one to wait for.

The Bible and Church history have taught one undeniable fact:  One person full of fire will ignite a generation to watch them burn.   Satan has made a mistake and we must make him pay for that mistake.   Satan plunged America so quickly and forcefully into dark perversion that he has nauseated them with wickedness.

The anger you see in the election is not political…it is rooted in their spirits.  They are sick to death of the lies of our culture.  They feel outrage at the betrayal of our leaders.  If we seize this moment—if we go full bore—if we abandon ourselves to outreach—we will see the greatest harvest in 40 years.

However, this door will close and this priceless moment will pass into the night where no man can work.  Since it is now or never…whatever we are going to do for Christ in America must be done now.  I place before you—my beloved partner—a do or die situation and I am praying with all of my heart that you will heed the urgent call of God in what I know will be our finest hour.

No Matter What White People will always be considered Racist by Liberals

no matter what

Why White People Will Always Be Racists

 

Whites are continually put into the position of forever having to prove the negative, that they’re not racists. This is impossible. And that’s the point.
By D.C. McAllister

They continue to prove liberals are never satisfied. We fought the Civil War. We ratified the Fourteenth Amendment. We have the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The civil-rights movement was a success. Now, we have South Carolina pulling down the Confederate flag. But it’s still not enough. And Hillary Clinton agrees.
“Removing this symbol of our nation’s racist past is an important step towards equality and civil rights in America,” Clinton said in a written statement after the South Carolina legislature voted to remove the flag. “The flag may soon no longer fly at the State Capitol, but there is still unfinished business in confronting and acting on the inequalities that still exist in our country. We can’t hide from the hard truths about race and justice. We must do everything in our power to have the courage to name them and change them” (emphasis mine).

In saying this is a “step toward equality and civil rights,” Clinton is acting as if the civil-rights movement never happened. She is painting our nation with the brush of racism as if it were still 1950—or even 1860.

Whites Must Stop Being Racists, But They Can’t
Shelby Steele, author of “White Guilt,” calls this “manipulating stigma.” With the victory of the civil-rights movement, whites lost their moral authority—something that inevitably happens when you admit you’ve done something wrong. As a nation, we confessed our racist past, and we righted that wrong. That should have been the end of it, but with the loss of that moral authority came an increase in the moral authority of minorities—power they and the Democratic Party have twisted and used to advance one social-justice agenda after another. Steele says this happens because of white guilt, and the stigma of racism reinforces white guilt.

 

‘If they don’t prove the negative, then the stigma sticks.’
Clinton says we can’t hide “from the hard truths about race and justice.” Which hard truths is she talking about except that we must overcome our inherent racism? President Obama said it is “in our DNA” to be racist. With this statement, he stigmatizes our nation. Clinton’s call to do everything in our power to have the courage to name those truths and change them is another way of saying that whites are racists, so we must “stigmatize them” and force them to change—to comply. A lot of effort won’t even be needed, as we’ve seen with the Confederate flag. Just point the accusatory finger, and those who don’t want to be delegitimized by stigma will dissociate from any hint of racism. They will obey.

Since the civil-rights movement, which community organizers and Democratic elites capitalized on to increase their power, “whites, and particularly, institutions, have lived under threat of stigmatization,” says Steele. He explains that through this manipulation of white guilt, whites are continually put into the position of forever having to prove the negative, that they’re not racist. This is an impossible task, which is why we’ll never really be free of it. “If they don’t prove the negative, then the stigma sticks,” he writes.

The Left Incites Racial Controversy to Secure More Power
The Confederate flag controversy has never been about being sensitive to minorities in the aftermath of the dreadful mass murder in South Carolina. It has been about stigma and the Democratic Party using it to delegitimize anyone who doesn’t bend to its will. Steele explains that if an individual or institution in America is stigmatized as racist, then they are delegitimized. They lose all power and authority and influence. They are marginalized and ostracized. When that happens, they can be easily defeated or manipulated.

 

Clinton, in true totalitarian form, isn’t concerned about inequality.

obama-hillary-whisper-fb
When this occurs at an institutional level, that institution can no longer really function effectively. The institution wants to function, to be legitimate, so it disassociates from any appearance of racism by showing how inclusive and tolerant it is, bowing to the will of the totalitarians who want to exert their power and have complete allegiance. This is what the Great Society was built on. It’s not about compassion or equality; it’s about wanting to be able to function, to be valued, and to be legitimate.

When Clinton says inequalities still exist in our country, this is a play at white guilt. Blacks and whites are both equal before the law, so her statement is a glaring falsehood. But Clinton, in true totalitarian form, isn’t concerned about inequality. She’s concerned about power.

The Only Thing We Have to Fear
As Tom Nichols writes at The Federalist about totalitarians like Clinton, “They are not really trying to capture something as pedestrian as political equality, nor are they satisfied if they get it. They are not really seeking a win in the courts, or a legal solution, or a negotiated settlement. Those are all just merit badges to be collected along the way to a more important goal: what they really want, and what they in fact demand, is that you agree with them. They want you to believe.”

The Silent Majority has now become the Silenced Majority.

maxresdefault
While Nichols calls these people the “new totalitarians,” they’re not all that new. They’ve been with us for decades. The difference is they have now accumulated a significant amount of power, and the Silent Majority has now become the Silenced Majority. They don’t want to be stigmatized. They don’t want to lose their legitimacy in society. So they remain silent and they conform.

“White guilt is a powerful, powerful force,” Steele says. “Not because people feel guilty, but because people are stigmatized, and again have to prove the negative all the time, and living forever under threat of being stigmatized.”

Stigma is a club in the hand of the totalitarian to increase power. Clinton, Obama, Loretta Lynch, and others will use it over and over again, as long as people allow the stigma to stick. As long as individuals and institutions fear delegitimization because of stigma and refuse to pay the high price of dissent, the power of the totalitarians will grow.

You won’t stop Trump by lying about him

Trump copy

You won’t stop Trump by lying about him

By Mario Murillo

The game has changed.  Once upon a time, all the ENRAGED LEFT had to do was lie about someone to get rid of them.  Trump changed that.  Lying just doesn’t work the way it used to.  In fact—something odd is happening—lying about Trump only makes him stronger.

Dragging out Harry Belafonte from the waxworks of the 1960’s to sing Trump away won’t work.   Hillary’s diatribes won’t work.  Even conservatives railing against Trump will fail.  Today, the Weekly Standard—that Conservative Bulwark—has uncorked an article that is touted as the death knell of Trump.  Okay, read my lips—it won’t work.   My guess is the current barrage will add maybe 5 points to his poll numbers.

I write you this as a spirit-filled evangelist.  I am not endorsing Trump.  Anyone who accuses me of endorsing him is doing out of their hatred of Trump and not because they read this all the way through.  There is a very strong Republican field and anyone of them is infinitely better than Clinton.  (I really like Ted Cruz.)

FILE - In this Sept. 26, 2014 file photo, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas speaks at the 2014 Values Voter Summit in Washington. Top Texas Republicans are holding their election night party on Nov. 4 with a concert by country star Pat Green at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas, best-known for hosting a weekly music show. Gov. Rick Perry isn’t seeking re-election but is considering a second run for the White House and is expected to attend. Also planning to be there, according to spokeswoman Catherine Frazier, is tea party-backed Sen. Ted Cruz, who appears likely to test the presidential waters. Same goes for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a possible 2016er some Republicans hope will enter the race to stand up to conservative firebrands like Cruz. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)

The entire reason for this article is about why lying has finally stopped working—more on that later.  For now let us clear the air on Trump.  He maybe a lot of things…but he is not these things:

Racist?  If you ask yourself some simple questions you will see why I believe Trump is not racist.  How many beheadings, terrorist bombings, and wholesale murder of gays have you read about from Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other world religion besides Islam?   Is it a coincidence that rape has exploded in Germany and Sweden since their mass migration of Muslim refugees?  Was the ISIS inspired terrorism in San Bernardino not worthy of a fresh look at how we bring Muslim immigrants here?

Trump never called for a permanent ban on Muslims he asked for a halt until our government could do a better job than Germany, France and Sweden did to guarantee the safety of Americans.  If you think that is racist… seek help.

Sexist?  Listen to his daughter Ivanka:  “He is highly gender-neutral and doesn’t discriminate when it comes to doling out unflattering comments to men and women alike.  If he doesn’t like someone, he’ll articulate that, and I think it’s also part of what resonates about him—he’ll say what he’s thinking.”

“If he didn’t feel that women were as competent as men, I would be relegated to some role subordinate to my brothers,” she adds. “I think this is one of his great strengths: He fully prioritizes merit and accomplishment and skill and ability over background, education and gender. This company, over four decades, has always had women in its highest ranks … I think he’s one of the great advocates for women, and he has been a great example to me my whole life … He 100-percent believes in equality of gender … [He has] confidence in women to do any job that a man can do, and my whole life has been proof of that.”

Of course I would prefer a fiery and wise Christ follower in the White House.  But I am not electing a pastor or an evangelist.  If I hire a plumber I don’t look for a fish symbol on their truck.  I look for someone who can do the job.

America needs a leader who is proud of America—who will make our economy work—who will make our enemies fear us…and you know what?  America knows that.

Be careful to explain away Trump’s popularity.  It is way too easy to dismiss it as simple populism.  Americans are fed up.  Americans are done with both Obama and RINOS.

And remember to take a closer look at where the true hate is coming from.  It is coming from political elites who have held unquestioned power over our lives.  Those chains are starting to break.

So the bottom line is that I am talking about something way bigger than Trump.  He was perhaps the trumpet that sounded the charge but this message is about the charge…a charge that harks back to another time in history.  During the Revolutionary War a dual fire burned in American hearts.  One part of that fire led to victory against Britain.   The other element of that fire brought the GREAT AWAKENING.

dual fire

Millions are sick of our leaders taking God out of everything.  Jesus is still—by far—the most admired historical figure in America.  A trembling is in the ground…Trump is but a symptom of it.  A seething boiling hunger for truth grows in our land.  A backlash of Biblical proportion is at work.

It may wear a surface label of Tea Party or Conservative, Libertarian or Trumpism…but beware!  If you insult it, you will only make it spread.  If you denounce it, you will only make more people look into it.  If you lie about it, you will only make it stronger.

 

2016: OUR LAST YEAR AS A FREE NATION?

IS THISWill 2016 be our last year as a free nation?  Will Obama revoke the next election and declare himself president for life?   Is God using him to punish us for our sins?  Will cities go up in flames of racial war?  Are the voices who pronounce doom speaking the word of God?

What was the first thing Jesus said when asked about the end of the world?  Matthew 24: 3, 4 says, “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.”

Terrorism and the dictatorship of Obama are looming disasters.  But the threat of you being deceived–deceived by a false prophet is an equal disaster.   A tsunami of lies and human opinion—being pawned off as words from the Lord—is crashing into the church.   I am guessing that out of the current wave of “prophetic words” almost half are utterly false—generated by greed, anger, manipulation and arrogance.

The threat posed by false prophecy is greater than you know.  If you follow a false prophet you will experience misery beyond anything you could have thought possible.

Most of the readers of our blog are referred to us from Facebook.   In the last few days, Facebook has been a toxic waste dump site for every kind of half-baked, unscriptural prediction of 2016.   Without missing a beat—you will see juxtaposed—predictions of untold blessing and favor along with total doom.  We know that they both can’t be right.

So if you are ready for an honest-to-God conversation about 2016 then start by rejecting these two popular prophetic notions:

  1. America is blessed and no harm will come to her.
  2. America must be destroyed and there is nothing we can do about it.

No one in their right mind can possibly look at a holy God and tell him  we are incapable of being destroyed.   The nation of 70 million abortions—the leading exporter of porn—the nation that has erased God from every institution (including the church) cannot be destroyed?

We live in a cloud of misery and grief of our own making.   God did not pick Obama, Americans did.  The eyes of the average American are glazed over by despair and fatigue.  Our children feel old and have little or nothing to look forward to.   All of this is in direct proportion to our rejection of Christ.

Will Obama try to stay in office after 2017?  Of course he will.  The media will continue to  esteem him as president.  The liberal establishment has already proven they will follow him through the flames of perdition.  Obama thrives on setting aside the constitution and daring congress to stop him.

“But we will throw him out!”  I hear that a lot—but, if we were going to throw him out…wouldn’t we have done it after Benghazi and a thousand other impeachable offenses?

Obama has committed more crimes than all 43 previous presidents combined.   If the congress has not been able to impeach him after all of this…what makes you think they can force him out of office?

Yes, America can be destroyed.  Yes, this could very well be our last year as a free nation.

It is often said that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.  The truth is that you knew what you had; you just never thought you would lose it.   Thinking we could never lose America is fastest way to lose America. 

On the other hand…setting your hope on America’s destruction is insanity.  That Jehovah God has intervened—in American history when things look hopeless—is a centerpiece of our history.  

I was just read again about the winter in Valley Forge where George Washington saw no way to hold the Continental army together.  His men were starving and freezing to death.  Farmers nearby wouldn’t feed the men who were fighting for their freedom.  The farmers could get a better price for their crop from the British.

And yet they did hold on and defeated the greatest military in the world.  In the depths of his despair Washington wrote to his friend about why he could hold the army together…He wrote  “ I knew that heaven was in our cause.”

Heaven is in the cause of every pastor who reads this and says “my church will host a true revival.”  Heaven is in the cause of every Christian who says “I will heed the warnings and obey the voice of God for there is yet one more miracle left for America.

The answer is clear:  2016 will not be our last year of freedom if the “people who know their God”  will truly humble themselves beneath the mighty hand of God.  He stands ready to release miracles beyond our comprehension…because heaven is in our cause.

Trump and Cruz send shivers down GOP spines

Trump Ted

Trump and Cruz send shivers down GOP spines

The prospect of either man as the Republican nominee is setting off alarm bells among officials and operatives across the country.
By ALEX ISENSTADT 01/05/16 05:11 AM EST

With only weeks before GOP primary voters first cast their ballots, the level of alarm among establishment Republicans about the enduring dominance of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is reaching new heights.

In private conversations with several former aides, Mitt Romney, who in March will keynote the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual fundraising dinner, has expressed rising frustration about Trump’s prolonged lead in polls and has argued that the real-estate mogul could inflict lasting damage on the party’s brand.

In Washington and elsewhere, meanwhile, Republicans are on the hunt for a political entity that can be used to stop Trump. In recent weeks, Alex Castellanos, a veteran TV ad man who was a top adviser to George W. Bush and Romney, has been meeting with top GOP operatives and donors to gauge interest in launching an anti-Trump vehicle that would pummel the Manhattan businessman on the television airwaves.
Those who’ve met with Castellanos say he’s offered detailed presentations on how such an offensive would play out. Castellanos has said that an anti-Trump ad campaign, which would be designed to cast him as a flawed strongman, would cost well into the millions. It was unclear, the sources said, whether Castellanos, who did not respond to a request for comment, would ultimately go through with the effort.

One growing worry about Trump or Cruz, top party officials, donors, and operatives across the country say, is that nominating either man would imperil lawmakers in down-ballot races, especially those residing in moderate states and districts.

“At some point, we have to deal with the fact that there are at least two candidates who could utterly destroy the Republican bench for a generation if they became the nominee,” said Josh Holmes, a former chief of staff to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “We’d be hard-pressed to elect a Republican dogcatcher north of the Mason-Dixon or west of the Mississippi.”

“Trump and Cruz are worrisome to most Republican candidates for governor, senator and Congress,” said Curt Anderson, a longtime GOP strategist and former Republican National Committee political director. “Some will say they are not worried, but they are.”

Romney has been calling around to former advisers to sound them out about the race, and to kvetch about Trump’s surprising durability. But in the immediate term, at least, he has expressed unwillingness to lend his hand to a stop-Trump effort — or to endorse a candidate more palatable to a GOP establishment paralyzed by his rise and worried that nominating him or Cruz would scupper an opportunity to control both the White House and Congress in 2017.

The concern is particularly acute in the Senate, where Republicans are fighting to preserve a relatively slim four-seat majority, defending more than half a dozen seats in hard-to-win swing states. Among them: Ohio, a presidential battleground state where Republican Sen. Rob Portman faces a perilous path to reelection.

When Trump traveled to the state in November, he met with Matt Borges, Ohio’s Republican Party chairman — who warned the front-runner that “divisive rhetoric won’t help us carry Ohio.”

“It’s time for people who have never won squat here to listen to the people who have been doing it for decades,” Borges said in an interview. “I’m just looking out for how we win in November.”

In Wisconsin, some party officials fret that a Trump or Cruz nomination could sink Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who faces a tough race against his predecessor, Russ Feingold.
“Certainly, it would be bad for Ron Johnson if Trump is the nominee,” said Wisconsin Rep. Reid Ribble who, like Johnson, was swept into Congress in the Republican wave of 2010. “I think Trump is probably really bad down-ballot.”

Some top party strategists have spent months considering how the outcome of the primary will impact congressional races. Since last spring, the National Republican Senatorial Committee has been poring over research and polling data in hopes of better understanding how each of the Republican candidates running for president would affect GOP hopefuls running for Senate. The committee has held internal meetings to discuss the pros and cons of each presidential contender and how they would affect each key Senate race.

The House, where Republicans have a historic 30-seat majority, is more secure for the party. But there, too, the GOP has reason to worry: The party must defend nearly three dozen endangered seats — many of them in liberal-to-moderate states like California, New York and Florida.

Should Trump or Cruz win the nomination, party operatives say, some longtime officeholders in more conservative districts such as New Jersey Rep. Scott Garrett or Florida Rep. John Mica, who typically skate to general election wins, could find themselves in tougher-than-usual contests.

Cruz’s campaign pushes back on the idea that the Texas senator would imperil those running in House and Senate races. A Cruz nomination, they argue, would motivate conservatives to turn out to vote in a way that an establishment candidate couldn’t.

“Down-ballot Republicans need Ted Cruz at the top of the ticket because he is the only candidate in the race who can excite the base to show up in November,” said Rick Tyler, a Cruz spokesman. “If we chose another moderate, we will simply lose seats we would otherwise win.”

Trump’s campaign didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Some, though, are already counseling Republican candidates to begin to think about how to distance themselves from a Trump or Cruz in the event either wins the nomination.

“Candidates will need to develop their own brand,” said Pennsylvania Rep. Charlie Dent, a Republican who has represented a swing district in Lehigh Valley since 2004. “A candidate will need to run his or her own campaign and distance themselves from the top of the ticket.”

Among the tricky questions candidates will be forced to consider: whether it’s worth endorsing either potential nominee.

Illinois Rep. Bob Dold, a Republican who represents a liberal-leaning, suburban Chicago district, said he had ruled out endorsing Trump. He declined to say whether he’d back Cruz.

While Dold said he was monitoring the primary, he argued that voters would be willing to look beyond the party’s presidential nominee when determining his fate in November.

“Illinois 10th District,” he said, “has a long history of ticket splitting.”

 

Racism: ‘White Men Must Be Stopped’ Says Salon Magazine

Racism: ‘White Men Must Be Stopped’ Says Salon Magazine

The hostile narrative against white men is being fanned by the influential left-wing news site Salon, which just ran an article titled, “White men must be stopped: The very future of mankind depends on it.”

Salon even added some art to its twitter link to emphasize the color angle in the article by Detroit labor activist Frank Joyce.

Originally published on Alternet under the equally racist title “The Future of Life Depends on Bringing the 500-Year Rampage of the White Man to a Halt,” Joyce throws punches wildly, using every bit of guilt inducing mumbo-jumbo he can muster up to make his case that white men are biggest problem facing the planet and it’s the white people reading his article who need to do the “restraining” of white people.

Joyce writers that “there is surely a role whites can play in restraining other whites in this era. Beneath the sound and fury generated by GOP presidential candidates, Fox News, website trolls, police unions and others, white people are becoming aware as never before of past and present racism.”

By the third paragraph of his racist screed, Joyce is blaming a Hispanic Senator and a black doctor for white supremacy:

 

To the contrary, given the possibility that Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) , Ben Carson or one of their ilk might become president, white supremacist ideology seems to be digging in harder than ever.

When Joyce hits his stride, he launches a full-fledged attack on facts, such as any non-leftist narrative of the real history of slavery.

This takes an especially pernicious twist when white racism deniers argue that there has always been slavery as though that itself somehow makes it justified. It’s not true that every society over all time has enslaved people. But even if it were true, the kind of slavery on which the U.S. was built is unlike any other that preceded it. It co-evolved with capitalism and it conflated slavery with “race”—plantation capitalism as the Reverend James Lawson calls it.

Talking factually about the actual history of slavery, says Joyce, is racist. Besides, he tells the elitist liberals that make up Salon’s readership, slavery in America was the worst thing ever…because… capitalism.

Facts are stubborn things. Here’s one account of slavery from a website that details the Atlantic slave trade. It is, of course, awful, but don’t hide your head in the sand. Read this account from a slave in the 1800s:

The stocks, which were in the boiler-house, were the cruelest. Some were for standing and others for lying down.  They were made of thick planks with holes for the head, hands and feet. They would keep slaves fastened up like this for two of three month for some trivial offense.  They whipped the pregnant women too. But lying face down with a hollow in the ground for their bellies, they whipped them hard but took care not to hurt their babies because they wanted as many of those a possible.

This was wrong on every level, but don’t tell Frank Joyce that it didn’t happen in the United States. It happened in Cuba.

As bad as slavery was, it was not unique to the United States. In fact, the vast majority of slaves taken from Africa didn’t go to the American South; instead, they went to South America and the Caribbean. And even though the United States ended the importation of slaves in 1808, it persisted much longer outside the U.S. in Latin America, as theInternational Slavery Museum website points out:

Despite the abolition of the slave trade by several European states in the early years of the 19th century and the subsequent attempts to suppress it, illegal slaving continued until the 1870s. Indeed, approximately a quarter of all Africans who were enslaved for the trade were transported across the Atlantic after 1807. The largest proportion of this trade operated directly between Africa and the Americas, notably Brazil and Cuba. The last known slave ship landed its cargo in Cuba in 1867.

One of the reasons for high slave importation in Latin America was that because so many slaves died due to poor living conditions they needed to bring in more replacements. In the United States, the slave population actually grew because life expectancy was longer, so births outpaced deaths.

Obviously, none of these facts justify slavery, an institution which America abolished completely about a century and a half ago. However, nothing justifies lying about slavery or completely dropping historical context either just because Mr. Joyce despises American capitalism.

By the way, Frank Joyce is white.

His Salon article is imploring white people to buy into his biased historical revisionism and feel guilty enough to take a stand against other white people in order to destroy America’s capitalist economic system that has produced more wealthy, successful black people than any other system or country on Earth.

Never one to let facts get in the way of his hate, Joyce encourages white people to take up this cause:

So are many others now writing and speaking honestly and openly about the enduring power of white racism. That is valuable because it strengthens the idea that whites can come to terms with reality, past and present, as opposed to the myths we are encouraged to believe. As we do so, another world does become possible.

The naive on the left—the NPR-bag toting, do-gooder crowd—may believe that when Joyce says “another world does become possible” that he means a world free of racism. He does not. He’s referring to the world of communism and anarchism.

The phrase “another world is possible” is a familiar dogwhistle to those that study the modern left. Unfortunately, most Democrats and mainstream liberals are clueless about the Left’s real goals and history. However, for those that pay attention, they know that the phrase shows up in book titles like Another World Is Possible: Globalization and Anti-Capitalism or articles in International Communist Current or even as the slogan of the anti-capitalist World Social Forum.

The left’s “anti-racism” movement language is a ruse Just like the 1960s “anti-war” movement was actually just anti-America and pro-Vietcong, the anti-racist activists on the left are totalitarian far-lefties under their diversity hoods.

The ugly truth is that Frank Joyce, Salon, and the rest of the leftist “anti-racism” crowd love racism – just as long as it’s racism against whites.

Why American Pastors will not unify against Obama. Here’s what would happen if they did.

Why American Pastors will not unify against Obama.  Here’s what would happen if they did.

By Mario Murillo

Every day someone asks me “Mario, we hear your message warning America but what can we do?”   Here is something so doable—it is a vexation of epic proportions that we do not do it.  You deserve to know why we will not do it.

We have 400,000 ministers in America who—if they spoke out as one voice—could reverse our moral landslide almost overnight.  Think of that!  We could end the insanity of the White House before the weekend.

Every Sunday they speak to the largest voting bloc in America: 40+ Million.  They have a captive audience.  They could do it—without even being political—just by being Biblical.

Half a million pulpits thundering truth at the same time would be the death of the secular progressive agenda.  Waking up the sleeping giant and arming them with truth would cut off the air supply of the God-haters.

There is too much at stake for me to try to save reputation and avoid controversy.  Let me say it plainly: It is time for a non-violent revolution; a firewall against the onslaught of evil.  This is the only way this nation will be spared.

Satan has done a number on our Christian colleges, seminaries and denominations. The enemy has sent a neutralizing counterfeit in the seeker model.  He has used fear to paralyze prophetic preaching.  He has used false doctrine to deceive many into immorality.  He has used seduction to create widespread compromise.

No way will I be like Elijah did in the cave.    I don’t believe I am the only one left—there are thousands of true men and women of God in our nation who are faithfully preaching the word and opposing the godless agenda.    However, there are not nearly enough and time is running out.

It is a hair-pulling irony that the greatest threat America has ever face is also the most curable threat.  So why won’t they unify against Obama?  Here are the reasons listed in order of importance.

american-flag-tattered

Fear of losing non-profit status. In the 1950’s, Lyndon Johnson caused the church to make a deal with the devil. The deal is known as the 501C3 designation.  Frustrated by pastors who were telling their people not to vote for him, Johnson introduced legislation that silenced the church.  In exchange for IRS status, churches agreed not to endorse political candidates.  The church did not need this designation because they were already tax exempt in the Constitution.

It makes no sense to say you fear losing your status.  Unless we speak out, churches will be illegal.  What use will your nonprofit status be to you when you are an underground church?

Lifestyle: 50% of all preachers who were polled said that if there was another way for them to make money they would leave the ministry. That means that for many preachers the ministry is just a paycheck.

If speaking out against Obama will cost them tithers, if standing for marriage and the unborn will offend some, they will not risk losing their lifestyle.

Racism: In a spirit-filled church, during the memorial to the Gospel legend Andrae Crouch—who did more than anyone before him to cross racial lines with Gospel music—Stevie Wonder said, “The only reason that people have rejected Obama’s policies of inclusion is because he is black.”

Not only was this breathtakingly inappropriate—think about what he is saying:  If you disagree with Obama you are racist—and that statement, my friend, is truly racist.

Ignorance of Scripture: Preachers today do not know the Bible. Many no longer believe it is the inspired Word of God.  They say nothing about hell, The Cross, The Blood or the Second Coming of Christ.  They get their sermons from motivational speakers and secular music lyrics.  They do not pray and search the scriptures.  They search for buzz words.

They cannot protect the flock of God from atheists and secular humanists because they have no ammunition from the Word of God.

Ignorance of America and revival: Many do not value revival because they do not know how God worked in our history. They do not understand that past moral awakenings have rescued the United States from certain doom.  Ignorance of revival is why they do not see it is life and death.

Apathy: Two extremes create apathy; one is self-sufficiency and the other is total discouragement. When ministers have too much or too little, they say, “What is the use in trying anymore?” One has given up because they don’t need the drama. The other has given up because they believe it is hopeless.

Even though the causes are totally opposite, the result is the same:  A nation dies because leaders cannot muster the necessary outrage to take appropriate action.

Competition: Many preachers do not see their fellow ministers as brothers in arms. They see them as competition.  They see them as predators of their people.  Wanting the biggest church has blinded them to the fact that we are all in the same army; that we are on the same side.  Some preachers actually relish the idea that their competitor is losing members and suffering loss.

Make no mistake.  I am not anti-church and I am especially not anti-pastor.  I am loyal to my fellow preachers.  I am committed to the local church…but we must unify and speak out.

Millions of American Christians need marching orders not another breathy chat about how special they are.   If you really believed they were special you would equip them for special ops!

So here is the bottom line:  If the guilty parties refuse to repent of all of these excuses— it will cost us the nation.

Yes we can wipe out the insanity of the White House in no time if we would stand together.  If we do not, we will be remembered as the worst preachers in American History.
