    Blaze is either slow or I’m double posting:

    On Nov. 26, 2000, the Observer published “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy,” a column by investigative reporter Gregory Palast (who has written for Salon) that outlined the cozy relationship enjoyed by the Bush family and the Barrick interests. Palast, who happens to be an American citizen, pointed out that Barrick’s U.S. subsidiary, Barrick Goldstrike, had donated over $100,000 to Republican committees in recent years; that Goldstrike had previously obtained a very sweet deal to mine gold on public lands in Nevada, pushed through during the final days of George H.W. Bush’s presidency; and that the former president had landed on Barrick’s payroll after leaving office, to peddle his influence with foreign leaders in exchange for a salary and stock options.

    Republican and Democrats are of the same ilk. Try them for treason and I’m sure the people will find them guilty and watch them dangle.

    There’s no investigation because Republicans do the EXACT same thing:

    In March and September, 2002, and again in 2003, the Bush Administration’s Department of Interior used armed BLM agents, helicopters, all terrain vehicles and large cattle trucks to begin “confiscating” (stealing) livestock from Western Shoshone lands, while Western Shoshones and their supporters were threatened with arrest. Between 2002 and 2003, hundreds of Western Shoshone cattle and horses were taken from the land in the area of Mt. Tenabo. The U.S. government sold the Western Shoshone livestock for pennies on the dollar, and the Western Shoshones never compensated for the property.

    Remember, all men are created equal.

    No one ever said:

    All men that are American citizens are created equal.

    So if all men are created equal, and you side with the brutality here because this man wasn’t a citizen, regardless of his immigration status, then you are conceding that it is okay to treat you, your daughter, and your grandmother with the same type of force.

    Let me ask you this… What if the parents are telling the truth? Do you admit that is a possibility? I can admit that perhaps they are playing us, I don’t believe they are but I recognize the possibility. But, if the parents are telling the truth, it is pretty horrifying, right?

    You don’t even need to ask that.

    The parents ARE in fact innocent. They are innocent because they have not been found guilty of a single infraction. They haven’t even been charged! You must assume the parents are innocent if you believe in the concepts of innocent until proven guilty, being made aware of the charges against you, facing your accusers in a public courtroom.

    But they can’t even face their accusers in the public square because of gag orders by the state!

    This is wrong, regardless of whatever evidence people like sosorry4u say they are aware of that the rest of us are evidently too lazy to seek out…

    I’ve kept up with this pretty well and I have still not seen enough evidence that would rationalize removing this child from her parents. I am aware of no criminal neglect charges; only charges based on conjecture that this family was too involved with the child’s medical needs with no exhibit A, B, or C to back the conjecture.

    I’m am not aware of any Tuft’s medical staff agreeing that the parents were over treating their daughter’s needs. Surely if something was amiss the people of Tuft’s would be saying that they agree with BCH and the state of Massachusetts.

    I feel I must speak my mind because I love my country. I know the shining hill will be forever out of man’s grasp and it is how we forever carry ourselves up that hill that will define us.

    Our forefathers we’re of much higher ilk than the discourse you encourage and I believe it disrespectful for someone to bring their names up in such inadequate words.

    There will be a day that God’s judgement is dealt, of this I am certain. And when that day comes I will want to know I have always been on His side. I will want Him to know that I withstood whips. I will want Him to know I withstood thorns. I will want Him to know I withstood spears. I will want Him to know I withstood nails. I will want Him to know that with Him I stood on a cross and forgave those who put me there; even if that person was you who derided and chastised the philosophy I believe Jesus Christ gave to us.

    God will always be victorious. And if God asked me to raise a sword I would; but how would I hear His message if I was standing so far away from Him because I was too busy allowing the hate, spite, and vitriol of both sides to sway me? I don’t believe I would, and for that I would be damned and those that did hear the trumpets of God would see to it I pay for my sins; yes, I’d choose martyrdom if that is God’s will.

    I pray you would too otherwise when you raise your sword I know it will be to the wrong calling; and when the men of God are commanded you will find your self on the losers side.

    If there was something as nefarious that would require the state to take custody of a child I would that charges against the parents would be levied so that said parents could face their accusers.

    The fact no charges have been delivered tells me that your suspicions of something “strange” are as well formed as the suspicions of those folks who believe we never landed on the moon.

    Frankly, I think the the strange part is how the state is handling this. I’m more suspicious of the state’s motives than the parents. I mean, think about it. Public healthcare started in Massachusetts. The federal system was drafted after the MA plan. We all know healthcare is expensive. Treating diseases is a lot more expensive than telling someone “Hey you’re fine. It’s all in your head. Send in the next please.” This is especially expensive when we are treating someone who has a disease, that requires a lot of resources to treat, that will never be what society would consider as a productive member of society, EVER. It makes no sense to use those resources on them; they’ll never be able to pay it back. Might as well call it a psychiatric issue and be done with them.

    If Glenn Beck announced a prayer vigil at the steps of where this little girl is being held I would take work off and drive up there. I would pray at those steps until she was returned to her family. If I was escorted away by the police I would allow them to book and process me. Upon my release I would kneel on the steps of the police department and pray that one of them is a good man and talks some sense into the people running the shows in Boston. And if they book and reprocess me again, the entire process would be repeated.

    Eventually our prayers would be answered.

    So what do you say Glenn? A revisit of Restoring Honor on the steps of the building Justina is being illegally held captive? You have surrounded yourself by men of God for a reason. Religious leaders who you told us you respected because they walk the walk. Give them a podium. Give them a real ministry. Give them a chance to show people what Jesus, Moses, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King would do if they were confronted by the evils we are confronted with.

    Glenn, you have a great opportunity to not only bring us just the news; you have an opportunity to galvanize the compassion of all men and show them what the Good News really looks like. It’s time for the religious leaders to unite in a common cause. They need to be out front and lead the people for surely that void of leadership will be filled sooner rather than later it seems.

    If I tried to organize it, would anyone come?

  • April 15, 2014 at 10:58pm

    As far as I know Glenn Beck has always said Do Not Comply And Do So Peacefully. As far as where I stand right now, that doesn’t sound crazy. To me that sounds logical, rational, and moral.

    I’m not sure what you are meaning by these antagonistic comments I keep seeing popup from names I seldom see on the Blaze, nor how you might think your comments add any real measure of intellectual honesty to the discourse.

    You sound like the characterized WWE fans from a South Park episode; you should go post on Comedy Central. Your tenacity at delivering emotional ploys would be served better with humor than with a topic covering something serious like liberty. I consider your discourse to be more of Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf than Patrick Henry; at that guy was hilarious in his hay day.

    I truly hope you come to understand the stakes of dealing with evil. Hate, vitriol, spite, and revenge are all tools of evil even in the hands of well intending men.

    It is a line the sand. But just because you draw a line doesn’t mean violence is to be resorted to if that line is crossed.

    It simply means, do with me as you must; but my heart is forever in the hands of God. Prison me if you must; with God I will always be free. God has has given us ten commandments. Follow those commandments and you have eternal life and a freedom that always escapes the boundaries of human incarceration.

    Once you accept that in your hearts, the worst any one can do is deliver you to the heavens. All it takes is peace.

    You can call it pacifism if you want; but I call it conquering the evils of mankind.

    You can fight fire with fire, or you can fight fire with something totally different than fire, water.

    You can fight hate with hate, or you can fight hate with something totally different than hate, love.

    God has given us the freedom to do so, and gave His son as the role model to define the right choice.

    And if Jesus had used the nails in His body to stab the hearts of those who nailed Him to the cross He wouldn’t be our Christ; He would have simply been a fatherless child from Nazareth that became a tyrant to rule all people.

    Excellent monologue Glenn.

    Nail on head.

    I pray that message reaches those confronted with true victim-hood and even martyrdom. Our Christian martyrs were martyrs because they turned to the justice of God, not the justice of the sword. The martyrs who died in the name of Christ died because they would not comply and did so peacefully.

    As difficult as it may be, we must walk the walk. I pray all involved, from the police statists to the targeted, allow room for love in their hearts for every individual involved. People will cling to a message of love; it’s why we still remember the name of Jesus 2000 years after his time here in the flesh.

    All you have to do is not comply, and no violence is needed to do that. If you do that with love and compassion; the rest will follow your lead and shake your hand in the gulags knowing victory is certain in the hands of God. Even if, especially if, all those who love God and liberty refuse to comply are placed in shackles, we can be rest assured that God will not save those who turn a blind eye on His people. With out Him they will destroy themselves. We will never be victorious through violence, we will only be victorious through Him.

    Again, excellent monologue Glenn. It’s a message the frustrated need to be reminded of because I fear it’s not as salient in the minds of the faithful as it should be.

    So Zappa, do your comments mean you support or condone National Socialism?

  • April 14, 2014 at 2:27pm

    Welcome to Progressive utopia.

    The Progressives have formed no bullying campaigns! This means bullying has been solved! So if anyone claims that bullying has not been solved, they are calling the Progressives liars and must be dealt with accordingly! Bullying no longer exists!

    Keep poking the bear.

    We feel safe in the US, but mark my words, if we try to halt Russian aggression the fight will come to our shores this time around. For far too long the American people have been shielded from many of the harsh affects of war. If Russia wants Poland, we will need to be very resolved in any confrontation. Frankly I do not see the people of this country fighting a shooting war with the Ruskies and not self imploding. Russia has us right where she wants us.

    And in World War II the common American consensus was that the Japanese were blind and therefore couldn’t fly or command a navy. Many assumed they were small and couldn’t fight hand to hand.

    While we were able to ultimately claim victory, this stereotyping and underestimation of their intent, capabilities, and military intellect cost us many American lives. The Persian/Iranian culture has been war planning for thousands of years; underestimating the intent, capability, and military intellect of such an obvious foe is to welcome our own peril in my opinion.

    Or Tennessee.

    They got the TSA VIPR checkpoints on the interstates there.

    Make sure you mind your curfews and keep your paper work on you at all times.

    This is BS.

    So they arrested him because he said something sarcastic like “Man, these people treat me like I got a (b word) up in this.”

    However they obviously know the context, because while they say they take all references to the (b word) had they really felt threatened by this individual they would have cleared the area.

    Instead you see everyone standing around like good little sheople that are not being herded to the exits.

    The response is proof they knew his threat wasn’t credible and was likely in jest.

    Context should matter, though in today’s world I guess the realm of context is an individual sense. That is to say it’s no longer common sense.

    Scary to think that these are the people socialists bred.

    Think about that before you leap onto the progressive band wagon. We have neo Nazi skinheads because a socialist regime thought it necessary to spread hate and vitriol for their system to work. Socialism literally breeds men like this. No one will ever say the trough; the KKK was founded by people who supported the democratic party. The history has nearly already been erased. Most voters today wouldn’t recognize that.

    The reason why democrats want all sports team to drop the Indian culture references is so that no one remembers they existed after the socialists wipe them all out; for good this time.

    How anyone can support socialism is beyond my comprehension.

    This is what happens when as a people we constantly take the easy way. Our government is a reflection of the people. Our federal, state, and local governments and agencies are broken because the people are broken.

    God will put us back together, but not without a period of great pain.
