The Royal Presidency: The Cult of Modern Presidents

Since the founding of America the idea of the Divine Rights of Kings has been held as abominable and a doctrine that turned Kings into tyrants who could do whatever they pleased contrary to the common national will.  The idea of having kings became repugnant and the founders' Constitution installed the Presidency instead in a three-way balance of power.  Today, however, with Barack Obama coming before the public via various media constantly, the presidency has been expanded and enlarged to almost a dictatorial position.  Historically, this is a recent phenomenon. 

This excellent podcast is about how the role of U.S. president has radically changed in America in contrast to what the Founding Fathers in the Federalist Papers had in mind.  Especially beginning in the 20 century (as wars increased to a global scale) American presidents began to usurp more and more power and have become a "national leader" in attempt to control and set the agenda for the entire country instead of the more limited role originally intended.

This pod cast from Cato is a real eye-opener to just how excessive and dangerous presidents have become, irregardless of party.

Professional Pilots: Hijackers Could Not Have Flown The Planes on 9/11

First is the testimony of a former Air Force and American Airlines pilot who flew the same planes.

Next is a discussion about the difficulty of controlling the aircraft in order to hit the WTC towers and Pentagon by commercial pilots from Pilots for 9/11 Truth.  Listen closely and ask yourself if these pros could not do it, how could the alleged novices, who trained only on small aircraft, have done this, perfectly, on the first try?

The official story--which is without any hard evidence, but only repeated allegation--cannot possibly be true.

Moralityphobia--Get Over It

This anti-social and political disease is a virtual pandemic that infects all discourse within the arenas of government and public debate. Governors, state legislators, teachers, and media (including talk show radio hosts that claim to be "conservative") either promote or are complying in a slavish manner to new Humanist commandments that frame the New Public Mores of "democratic society" (by definition a humanist society without regard to God), which persecutes, scolds and attempts to censor those who do not bow to their rules of Progressive Political Correctness. It is as if there were these new higher laws, graven on modern virtual tablets, written by the finger of Democratic Man:

I. "Thou shalt have no other gods but Tolerance".
II. "Thou shalt not obey old laws, but thou shalt obey the written new rules of Political Correctness (which at present hold legislator's captive by fear and intimidation)
III. "Thou shalt not judge by old standards (only because they are old), such as Virtue, especially from historically respected books, like the Bible."
IV. "Thou shalt not take the name of Tolerance in vain (for Tolerance is intolerant of that, and demands to be worshiped, by some more than others), and make no mention of sins in the old fashion, whether public or private, or such as blasphemes Tolerance".
V. "Thou shalt make no mention of the Bible or its moral teachings, or Jesus (except for Progressive legislation for Tolerance)".

When discussion about homosexuality occurs (since the revolutionary firebrands require it) those who oppose the abhorrent, unnatural, and perverse behavior (and those who practice, promote or legalize it), and are on the side of moral society and what used to be called "public virtue," are branded, slandered, and villified as if they have done evil. A new public "shaming" is put upon them instead, and government bows in fear and even repeals its own laws. (Note the other party's blind hypocrisy about "not judging others"). Thus public debate about Morality is either censured or least the Old Morality is, but only to be replaced by the New.

Well, this dated article addresses this subject and rings true, and the rope of its bell needs to be pulled again. To the general public: "Hear ye, hear ye...
