A Nation that Lives off of Lies

By Mario Murillo

No young man should die at 18 years of age.  Michael Brown should be alive and his parents should not be suffering this unspeakable loss.  We all extend our heartfelt condolences to them at this time.

Last night we saw riots.  But here’s the thing, the looting, burning and shooting was based on a lie.  In fact, so much of what America has become is based on lies.

Police brutality is real, wrong and must be stopped. But it will not be eradicated by a lie.

With reason, compassion and grinding honesty the Grand Jury in this case fretted, grieved and separated fact from fiction.  The physical evidence showed that this was not about race but about a 6 foot 4 inch 296 pound man who an eye witness wrote “has his arms out with attitude,” while “The cop just stood there.” The witness added, “Dang if that kid didn’t start running right at the cop like a football player. Head down.” The witness told of hearing “3 bangs,” but “the big kid wouldn’t stop.”

America had a rare glimpse at honesty when St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch (a Democrat) with great care, thoroughness and patience explained the verdict, and answered questions.   He told the truth.   It enraged some of the reporters because it did not feed the lie that sells their rags.  Michael Brown will be canonized as a civil rights hero but that too will be a lie.

The disease extends way beyond black leaders and media shills.  We as a nation are now almost wholly dependent on keeping lies alive for a living.

Look at the Benghazi terrorist attack. Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama lied when they told you that the Benghazi terrorist attack was about a video. Why did they lie?   Obama had to lie to be reelected.  Hillary agreed to lie because of her presidential aspirations.  They are living off of a lie.

Our military says the Fort Hood terrorist attack was “workplace violence.”  Again this is a lie that saves some of the brass their jobs.

Jonathan Gruber was caught telling us that Obamacare was built on a lie and that we were too stupid to know that.  He made 3 million dollars promoting the lie.

The biggest lie we have heard yet is that amnesty for 5 million illegal immigrants is a good thing.  The Democratic Party is lying to stay in power with the Latino vote.

Illegals have also been told a lie.   We have no jobs for you!  The same party that let you in has created economic policies that killed jobs.   Obama has not created jobs for Americans, much less millions of the largely ill-educated and unskilled newcomers.

Republicans are also starting to live off of a lie.  With Obama’s executive order, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner just witnessed the greatest act of tyranny against the constitution ever and they will not confront it.  They said “we do not want to appear negative and we want to focus on jobs.”  Oh yeah?  Whose jobs are you trying to save?   Who will stand up for the Constitution?  A true patriot doesn’t live for the short term gain but for the legacy of liberty!  This was an outrage that went unanswered.

Living off of lies is trickles down to all parts of our culture now.  Kim Kardashian must sell that lie that to be a meaningful woman you must take off your clothes.  Eminem must keep the lie alive that dropping “F” bombs at an event honoring veterans is “artistic expression.”  Ben Affleck must suffocate reason in order to call Islam a religion of peace.  On and on it goes.

The American church is not exempt!  Pastors who build an empire on messages that deliberately leave out the Cross, personal repentance, sacrifice and discipleship and the power gifts of the Holy Spirit are also living off of a lie.  While it brought crowds it weakened them.  With all moral lines blurred by celebrity ministers the church is powerless to stop America’s free fall.

Jesus said, “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” Matthew 7: 26, 27.

Every lie will be tested.  There is a storm coming that will expose it.  When lies collapse it is breathtaking.

Look at yourself.  I do not care what job you have or how famous you are…speaking truth, living truth and loving truth is your only safety.  If it hurts your career so be it!  If you lose friends let them go!

We are watching the last gasps of America’s greatness unless we must find people who want to live off of truth.

It is time to go back to what made us prosperous, great and safe.  We believed that our word was our bond.  We believed that convictions mattered more than connections.  We celebrated integrity instead of rewarding infamy.  We knew filth, vileness and treachery when we saw it.   We believed that honesty was its own reward and that God was the only one we needed to please.

You and I can still find treasure.  Tell the liars that you want the real riches that are reserved for those who shake off the lies.

Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners,    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.  He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.  Psalm 1: 1-3

Black disappointment with Obama threatens Democrats

Black disappointment with Obama threatens Democrats

BY DAVID LIGHTMAN

McClatchy Washington BureauOctober 23, 2014

 

Akua Scott and Aaron McKinney (left and center), community organizers in South Florida, speak with customers at Jackson’s Soul Food restaurant, a popular gathering place for many living in District 24, about voter turnout, in Overtown, Fla. “We had this idea once we got the first black president all our problems will be solved,” said McKinney on Oct. 9, 2014. PETER W. CROSS — McClatchy

MIAMI — Black voters’ disappointment with President Barack Obama, who they so eagerly embraced for so many years, could be costly on Election Day to Democrats, who badly need a big African-American turnout to win Senate and gubernatorial races in key states.

Instead, many African-Americans see an unemployment rate well above the national average, continuing problems with crime in many neighborhoods, and a president more interested in trying to help other voting blocs that didn’t give him such unwavering support.

He talks about same-sex marriage in a nod to the gay and lesbian community. He discusses immigration and its benefits, an issue particularly important to the Latino community. He fights for equal pay, a vital issue to the women Democrats so avidly court.

The black community, which gave Obama support like no other group, too often doesn’t see the investment paying off.

“People in this community just don’t think anything is going to change,” said Akua Scott, a Miami-based labor organizer.

Instead of obvious improvements in the economy, jobs can be tough to get and despair remains a constant.

“A lot of people don’t understand how government works. They think the president is a savior,” she said.

Obama remains hugely popular among blacks; last month’s McClatchy-Marist poll found 86 percent approved of the job he’s doing. But the disapproval number was 12 percent, double its level just after the 2012 election.

In Miami’s Overtown neighborhood, a historic black community, people don’t necessarily blame the president for making it hard to get a job or stay financially afloat, but they had hoped for more.

“We had this idea that once we got the first black president, all our problems would be solved,” said Aaron McKinney, a Miami community organizer. He walked around the Jackson Soul Food restaurant in Overtown one day recently urging people to vote.

“People are happy to see a black man as president, but people in this environment see no way out,” said Dorrell Brown, a Miami longshoreman. “This is what they’ve believed for a long time, and it’s not changing.”

He and others echoed the views of some leading black scholars and commentators who have criticized Obama for not doing enough for the black community.

“He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit,” Cornel West, a professor of philosophy and Christian practice at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, told Salon.com in August.

Democrats badly need black voters to turn out in November. Its most endangered Senate incumbents last ran in 2008, the year Obama first won the presidency.

When blacks stay home, Democrats in states with large African-American constituencies often lose. In Florida, former Gov. Charlie Crist, running as a Democrat, needs those voters. Florida’s black voters gave Obama 95 percent of the 2012 presidential vote and made up 13 percent of the electorate.

Two years earlier, in the state’s 2010 gubernatorial election, their share was 11 percent. The drop in turnout hurt. Though blacks gave Democrat Alex Sink 93 percent of their vote, Republican Rick Scott, who’s now running against Crist, won by 1 percentage point.

Black turnout could matter in governors races in Arkansas, Maryland, Michigan, Georgia and South Carolina, and it also could be crucial in swinging a handful of Senate races this year.

In Louisiana, Sen. Mary Landrieu, a Democrat, has a tough road to re-election. She last won six years ago, when the black vote was 29 percent of the total and gave her a 96 percent to 2 percent majority, according to exit polls. That more than offset her 2-to-1 losing ratio among whites.

In North Carolina, another Democrat, Sen. Kay Hagan, is also battling for another term. In 2008, blacks were 19 percent of the vote and Hagan rolled up a 96-1 win while losing the white vote by 18 percentage points. She won that race with 53 percent. Strong black turnout could also be crucial to Democrats in Georgia, Kentucky and Arkansas.

Turnout historically plunges in midterm elections, which lack the glamor of the presidential race. Candidates are not as well-known, and unless there’s a compelling issue that affects a lot of people personally, such as a reeling economy, many see little personal stake in voting.

Democrats have a dilemma. Obama is increasingly unpopular in key states, and promoting him too heavily, let alone bringing him in to campaign, would be a political liability. But not sending him there means the party can’t use an important weapon to motivate its most loyal constituency.

So the Democrats are trying a variety of tactics to stir the vote. Obama’s organizational infrastructure is still regarded as strong, and the Congressional Black Caucus is active in Freedom Sunday, a campaign that began a month ago and centers on African-American church organizations.

Black leaders are also stoking fears that a Republican Senate takeover will make life miserable. Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the Congressional Black Caucus chairwoman, warned that Obama’s impeachment would be high on the agenda if Republicans run Congress. Some conservatives have floated the idea, but it is considered highly unlikely to go anywhere.

Democrats also remind black voters that many Republicans back laws that require voters to show photo IDs at the polls. Many in the black community regard such laws as an effort to suppress their votes, because studies have shown a disproportionate number of minority voters lack government-issued photo IDs.

Republicans say they, too, are unusually active. Lingering economic problems in the black community “create a window of opportunity for us to go into these communities and share our message,” said Orlando Watson, a Republican Party spokesman. Unemployment among blacks was 11 percent last month, well above the 5.9 percent national average.

Republicans for two years have had a three-step process for luring black voters. Party workers in 13 key states first engage the voters, then try to build trust, and finally push them to vote. So far they say they’ve reached out to about 200,000 black voters.

Getting African-Americans to vote for anyone this year is clearly going to be difficult. Louisiana’s black share of the vote plunged from 29 percent in 2008 to 24 percent in 2010, and in Kentucky, it dropped from 11 percent to 6 percent.

Democrats figure they just have to break through with the kind of pointed message Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., chairman of the black caucus’ political action committee, offers.

“We have to convince people this is like voting in a presidential election,” he said.

 

“WHITE GIRL BLEED A LOT”: RETURN OF RACIAL VIOLENCE TO AMERICA AND HOW THE MEDIA IGNORE IT (E-BOOK).

“WHITE GIRL BLEED A LOT”: RETURN OF RACIAL VIOLENCE TO AMERICA AND HOW THE MEDIA IGNORE IT (E-BOOK)

Racial violence is back. Along with widespread racial crime – even riots. In hundreds of episodes in more than 80 cities since 2010, groups of black people have been roaming the streets of America – assaulting, intimidating, stalking, threatening, vandalizing, stealing, shooting, stabbing, even raping and killing. In cities big and small. In ways expected and unexpected. But local media and public officials are silent.

Crime is colorblind, says a Milwaukee police chief. Race is not important, a Chicago newspaper editor assures us. That denies the obvious: America is the most race-conscious society in the world. We learn that every day from black caucuses, black teachers, black unions, black ministers, black colleges, black high schools, black music, black moguls, black hair business owners, black public employees, black art, black names, black poets, black inventors, black soldiers, black police officers. We learn it in stories written by members of the National Association of Black Journalists. We talk about everything except black mob violence and lawlessness. That is Taboo. Result: Few know about it. Fewer still are talking about it.

Today it is at epidemic levels in almost every city in the country. The list of cities under attack is long and getting longer – with some cities suffering dozens of attacks in the last few years alone: Chicago. Miami. Philadelphia. Las Vegas. New York. Atlantic City. Milwaukee. Charlotte. Mobile. Kansas City. Denver. Birmingham. Saratoga Springs. Seattle. Portland. Nashville. Washington, D.C. Los Angeles. Rochester. Wilmington. Georgetown. Greensboro. Nashville. Peoria. Vallejo. Des Moines. Dallas. Rehoboth Beach. Baltimore. Montgomery County. Boston. St. Louis. Brighton Beach. And more, more, more. Des Moines, Iowa? Yes, at the Iowa State Fair, no less – during what one cop called Beat Whitey Night. Peoria, Illinois? Absolutely: As many as nine race riots in 2011 alone – right in the middle of Middle America. Milwaukee? Yes, on the Fourth of July, after looting a nearby convenience store, a crowd of nearly 100 blacks set upon some white teens on a picnic. After beating one white woman, a black woman noted, “Oh white girl bleed a lot.” And the Milwaukee state fair is probably the most explicit and public hate crime anyone has seen in years. Hundreds of black people roamed the fairgrounds, targeting white people for violence.

You didn’t hear about that?

Editorial Reviews

“Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made it painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is even greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities across America.” – Thomas Sowell, National Review

“Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse.” – WND.com

“This is an important book. You must read White Girl Bleed a Lot.” – Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson

“What’s happening, as the book makes indisputably clear is, first, black mob violence against nonblack persons and property, and second, appalling indifference, denial, and cover-up by police and the media.” – John Derbyshire

Why race baiting will backfire and why conservative Christians must hold their ground.

Listen to these statements by Jonathon Capehart of the Washington Post defending his view that the only reason that white members of the  House are against Ambassador Susan Rice is because she is a black woman.  Here are his words:

“On Friday, The Post editorial board took on “The GOP’s bizarre attack on Susan Rice,” the U.N. ambassador who is in the running to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. Blasting a letter from 97 House Republicans to Obama warning against Rice’s possible selection as a “blatant disregard of established facts,” the piece gets to the heart of why the controversy over Rice rankles African Americans.”

“Could it be, as members of the Congressional Black Caucus are charging, that the signatories of the letter are targeting Ms. Rice because she is an African American woman? The signatories deny that, and we can’t know their hearts. What we do know is that more than 80 of the signatories are white males, and nearly half are from states of the former Confederacy. You’d think that before launching their broadside, members of Congress would have taken care not to propagate any falsehoods of their own.”

“The blatant disrespect of a black woman by McCain and other Republicans won’t soon be forgotten by African Americans, no matter how soft McCain’s rhetoric gets.”

Nothing is off limits for this man; he even brings up the Civil War and reminds us that some of the Republicans come from “States of the former Confederacy.”

How can anyone think that questioning Susan Rice after she deliberately misled the American public on Benghazi is a “Bizarre Attack”?

Mr. Capehart smells blood in the water.  I believe that it is his conviction that Obama’s reelection is a mandate that allows for using racial rhetoric against any voice of dissent.  In his words, “It will not soon be forgotten”

Remember people, Obama refused to offer aid to Americans begging for their lives.  Obama covered it up and continues to cover it up.  It is a crime far worse than Watergate.   Is it racist to want justice?

However there is an even greater evil going on in this.  Mr. Capehart goes on to offer a chilling explanation of why he wants to save the Republican Party: “The Republican Party has a lot to do to redeem itself. And I hope it succeeds because a hobbled GOP could lead to a self-satisfied and complacent Democratic Party.”

The code message is that Conservatism and Christian values no longer have a place in our culture.  In order for Republicans to survive they must abandon traditional marriage, the Bible and every vestige of conservatism.  The people will not agree to anything else.

The New York Times put it this way, ““If Republicans are serious about repairing their party’s standing among women, gay and Hispanic voters, they need to adjust some policies and stop sending hostile messages.”

What if the opposite is true?  What if we are really supposed to be clearer on our conservative convictions and more deeply aligned with the Word of God?   What if the election is a total misreading of America and the people of God are supposed to hold their ground just a little longer?

Let me explain by harking back to the election of William McKinley.  That election was bought and paid for by J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie.  McKinley outspent his opponent William Jennings Bryan by a margin of 5 to 1.

These titans of industry hated Bryan because he wanted moral reform, and at that time it was bad for business.

Mckinley won alright but it was a rigged election.  The only other man that the big three feared was Teddy Roosevelt.  They made him vice president in order to hold him at bay.  What they could not have predicted was the assassination of McKinley which was a horrible tragedy.    It was the worst way for Teddy Roosevelt become president.   However, under his leadership the nation enjoyed prosperity and greatness.

In the last election, the big three were not in oil, steel, or railroads they are a much stranger conglomeration.  They are ABC, NBC, and CBS.  They  worked to forge a narrative in cahoots with labor unions, and foreign money that no opposing candidate could have defeated.  We do not know how much was funneled into Obama’s war chest from outside the United States because it was never disclosed.

We also do not know how much the unions helped count the votes: 91 districts in Philadelphia without even single vote for Romney?  Was the last election rigged?   I will leave that for you to decide.

What I do know the election does not mean that America wants race baiting, or radical centralization of power to the White House.     I know that socialism will not work in America.  We still believe in big dreams and hard work.  We do not want government to take our freedom so that we can have a nanny state.   When Obamacare and all of the other extreme programs become reality the nation will recoil against the bankruptcy and inefficiency of government programs.  Hello FEMA!   Most of all I know that there are millions of Americans who still love God and the Bible with all of their hearts

America is going to get sick of all of the handouts and we will hate it when we are forced to work hard to pay for others who will not work.  The Constitutional Republic based on Christian values still has a chance for a big return.  Let’s all stand our ground.  Let them call us any name they want we know what we really are…Americans.
