The Truth About Iran's Nuclear Weapons Program and Their "Threat to Israel"

Let us begin this subject and take an objective look at the issue of Iran developing nuclear technology, and allegedly nuclear weapons, and particularly its politicization by the propagandists, the media and also as a subject in the recent Republican Primary debates.  It will not be difficult to prove that this is an issue that has been pushed by powerful groups to the front of political controversy, incessantly, for over four years now.  Since it is now absolutely clear to unbias and rational minds that the alleged "WMD threat" in Iraq was a deliberate fraud, sold by the neoconservative Bush administration and Israeli Lobby, but also propagated, parroted and fanned by (the apparently very bias) American media (including all major networks and Washington Post in particular) it behooves Americans to fact-check what today is being forced upon us about Iran as if we do not have the duty or capacity to think critically about what we hear.

Let us resolve not to let the White House, media, or special political interest groups (under the auspices of "intelligence agencies") talk us into another $1 Trillion dollar war against only a propagandized and rhetorical threat, to fulfill a neoconservative agenda in the Middle East (for Israel), especially during a time of financial and government-fiscal crisis (which by the way also sparked the steady increase in oil and gas prices, which led to unbounded inflation of food and consumer prices too). 


Wherever there is the power of political-correctness (a pretended majority opinion generated through media perceptions) there is a social tyranny.  Objective truth based upon hard evidence and sober thinking is the enemy of Political Correctness and also of the easily manipulated multitudes in our entertainment-driven and shallow society that wants the packaged intellectual food of McNews for its diet.  (Americans are not only obese physically but have a bad intellectual diet as well.  Read the ingredients of either before buying or swallowing!).

Exhibit 1, the Republican Debates:  Ron Paul spars with Michele Bachmann regarding Iran and the IAEA report regarding Iran's nuclear program:


1.  Read this article by FAIR to understand the truth behind the IAEA's very misleading report:

Iran, Nukes and the Failure of Skepticism. Iraq all over again?

Much of the corporate media coverage of a new UN report on Iran strongly asserts that Iran is close to building nuclear weapons. But the International Atomic Energy Agency report does not actually arrive at that conclusion, and many critics contend that the speculations that are in the report are misguided.
2.  Note that even the Washington Post has recently admitted this by retracting and correcting an article headline they got called out on as "misleading":  "Iran's Quest to Possess Nuclear Weapons Technology".

3.  Now watch this short video debunking the propaganda about Iran developing a nuclear weapon in less than 7 minutes:


The recent article below from Media Matters' Political Correction blog explains perfectly the new propaganda strategy of the Israeli Lobby and neoconservatives in terms of painting (what they really fear) a more truthful picture of what Iran might actually do with its nuclear technology--i.e. not to seek to "wipe Israel off the map" (exactly what Iran has been saying they would do, nothing aggressive).  The neoconservatives and Israeli Lobby, in other words, are suddenly very afraid of the truth that their fear-mongering and alarmist propaganda about Iran will be discredited as blatant lies as much as the lies about WMD in Iraq.
American Enterprise Institute Admits The Problem With Iran Is Not That It Would Use Nukes

American Enterprise Institute Admits The Problem With Iran Is Not That It Would Use Nukes

Suddenly the struggle to stop Iran is not about saving Israel from nuclear annihilation. After a decade of scare-mongering about the second coming of Nazi Germany, the Iran hawks are admitting that they have other reasons for wanting to take out Iran, and saving Israeli lives may not be one of them. Suddenly the neoconservatives have discovered the concept of truth-telling, although, no doubt, the shift will be ephemeral.

The shift in the rationale for war was kicked off this week when Danielle Pletka, head of the American Enterprise Institute's (AEI) foreign policy shop and one of the most prominent neoconservatives in Washington, explained what the current obsession with Iran's nuclear program is all about.

The biggest problem for the United States is not Iran getting a nuclear weapon and testing it, it's Iran getting a nuclear weapon and not using it. Because the second that they have one and they don't do anything bad, all of the naysayers are going to come back and say, "See, we told you Iran is a responsible power. We told you Iran wasn't getting nuclear weapons in order to use them immediately." ... And they will eventually define Iran with nuclear weapons as not a problem.

Hold on. The "biggest problem" with Iran getting a nuclear weapon is not that Iranians will use it but that they won't use it and that they might behave like a "responsible power"? But what about the hysteria about a second Holocaust? What about Prime Minister Netanyahu's assertion that this is 1938 and Hitler is on the march? What about all of these pronouncements that Iran must be prevented from developing a nuclear weapons because the apocalyptic mullahs would happily commit national suicide in order to destroy Israel? And what about AIPAC and its satellites, which produce one sanctions bill after another (all dutifully passed by Congress) because of the "existential threat" that Iran poses to Israel? Did Pletka lose her talking points?
Apparently not.

Pletka's "never mind" about the imminent danger of an Iranian bomb seems to be the new line from the bastion of neoconservativism.

The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor is No Mere Conspiracy "Theory"

Even the History Channel has recently covered credible historians and military authors' conspiracy theories about FDR and Pearl Harbor, which coerced America into the European war with Germany and defeated the "isolationist" or Nonintervention movement in America (which aviator Charles Lindbergh played a key role in) which had prevented it.   (Actually, about 80% of Americans were against going to war against Germany for the sake of Great Britain.  The term "isolationists" was a term brandished to abuse the principled public in order to go into wars unnecessarily and for no purpose of self-defense.  This same label is used on Ron Paul today in republican debates by Establishment RINOs and war-mongers who want to engage Iran pre-emptively).

Please read the recent article below about President Hoover's now released secret book about FDR which also references authors that are part of this History Channel program in regard to the truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor.

Then consider how much you should trust the government's official stories of events and reasons for war.  (Go ahead, search about the Lusitania and WWI or the Gulf of Tonkin event for Vietnam too).  Yes, your serious consideration should include 9/11 too.  The public after December 7, 1941 could not imagine any President deliberately permitting or provoking that attack either.  It's interesting how the neoconservatives wrote about "a new Pearl Harbor" being "necessary" prior to September 11, 2001 in order to begin wars for "global hegemony" according to their Middle East blueprint too.

A summarization of the conspiracy by FDR (and Britain's Winston Churchill, see the review of Betrayal at Pearl Harbor: How Churchill Lured Roosevelt into World War II) involving Motive, Means, and Opportunity (key components to any criminal investigation of "who did it") begins just after the 18:00 minute mark.   It all becomes so very, very clear.

The Significance of West Virginia in American History: "Child of the Rebellion"

Finally, the Department of Tourism has made both a website and videos touting what most Americans, and too many West Virginians, are ignorant of, i.e. the birth of the state during the Civil War and its unique significance in American history. 

The Dept. of Tourism's new Civil War website with the headline, "A State Born...from a Nation Torn", is an excellent visual introduction and guide and the videos (set to some great fiddle music!) provide a good educational profile of various parts of the state and their historical setting during the Civil War. 
Every family and school should make use of this entertaining and educational resource to understand the state's context in history.

Here is a taste of it, this one highlighting the Eastern Panhandle, especially Harpers Ferry and the site of the John Brown raid.

Veteran's Day 11-11-11 Revisited: President Herbert Hoover From the Grave-- FDR's WWII was Wrong!

Did you feel it? That great cataclysmic event on 11-11-11? No not a physical one, but a metaphysical one took place. There was no earthquake. But an intellectual tremor and tumult rumbled and broke out as Truth woke up and came forth from the grave. A significant witness from the grave has just been summoned and called to give testimony to today's post-9/11 America, and not too soon. 

One of the most controversial books in American history has just been published, and ironically was introduced on November 7, just before the numerically significant Veteran's Day, November 11th, 2011 (11-11-11). What is unique about this particular book is that its author was a U.S. President, who kept it a secret until now, a generation after his death. If this book is not widely announced in major media then Americans should be suspicious as to why Bush and Cheney's recent books, and even Condi Rice's memoirs, would receive more of their attention than that from President Hoover. If America is interested in what Steve Jobs said and wrote before his decease, how much more an American president? Academics and historians are already praising it and shouting about its importance. Veterans in particular should pay attention, for it was their blood put on the line. And before you read on, remember that General Patton was not very keen (to put it mildly) on the U.S. being allies with communist Russia in order to make war on Germany.

From the Academic Journal FIRST PRINCIPLES, George Nash on November 15th wrote this article below introducing former (conservative) President Herbert Hoover's Magnum Opus book, FREEDOM BETRAYED, that has not been published....until now. This book authored by President Hoover is, and will prove to be, an absolute bomb shell, as to how Americans view World War II in future generations, even if this one ignores it willingly.

The Truth never long remains buried, but is always called eventually by the God of Providence into a resurrection, and rises again to indict and charge its unjust persecutors who thought it put away like Joseph into slavery (the Bible), a Tell-Tale Heart (Poe) from a corpse behind a brick wall, or pulled off in secret like a Watergate break-in (Nixon's plumbers). Do the American people really blindly believe the wars the government pushes us into are always justified, and therefore should be glorified? This cross-examination of America under FDR's presidency and WWII history by the credible President Hoover will not be so easy to dismiss. It also touches upon the real truth about the "Red Scare" in America and whether Communism was in fact infiltrating U.S. government, as he believed it was. Wasn't it FDR in fact that pushed and passed the Social(ist) Security Act, the first Welfare and Entitlement, and communistic Big Government program? Those who know American history know that FDR who led America to war (like Wilson) also pushed the New Deal programs that many claim President Obama has imitated even as a perpetual "war on terrorism" (for Global Democracy, in truth) is waged with bipartisan support. But I digress.

The typical unquestioning, flag-waving view of America's involvement in WWII (which actually turned it into a world war in fact) is held sacred every Veteran's Day in particular and is indoctrinated through the government school system and government-media complex so that subsequent generations have had to genuflect in praise without thinking more sagaciously about the war against Hitler's Germany and the "Empire of Japan" (FDR's words). Neither is a moral thought hardly given to the real holocausts (death by burning) of dropping 2 Atomic Bombs on two civilian cities in Japan or the total incineration of the civilian city of Dresden, Germany by U.S. and its allies with firebombs. (Strictly legally and morally speaking, these were war crimes, as much as General Sherman burning Southern cities during the un-Civil War.  Talk about killing and targeting "non-combatants" or "collateral damage"! Don't get me started about the especially developed "Holocaust" propaganda machine that has been used to justify the controversial war after it was finished to further inflame emotional passions through entire fabrications and lying statistics). If the average American today had been alive in the 1930s and 40s their view of the justification for the war against Germany in particular would be as controversial as the post-war reflection today about Iraq. Americans did not want to go to war against Germany and it posed no imminent threat to the U.S..  Pearl Harbor was the "catalyzing event", like a 9/11 (see the neoconservatives Project for New American Century's quote about this), to justify war with Japan, and then Germany as their ally.  

More of the truth challenging the official story and justification for WWII has been published recently (see our Bookstore below). Military author Robert Stinnett published his book DAY OF DECEIT: THE TRUTH ABOUT FDR AND PEARL HARBOR, as a military participant and expert, laying out the documented proof that FDR tricked Americans into war against Germany by a deliberate conspiracy to provoke Japan to attack the U.S. Pacific Fleet (e.g. sending them from San Diego to a sitting duck position in Hawaii, like bait for sharks). The book is an eye-opener enough. Even more recently conservative and former republican presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan published his book called CHURCHILL, HITLER, AND THE UNNECESSARY WAR, which amazingly is now being vindicated by President Hoover's book now published long after his decease! AMERICANS NOW NEED TO WAKE UP TO THESE SIGNIFICANT AND CREDIBLE WITNESSES THAT TESTIFY IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS THAT AMERICA'S GOING TO WAR AND FOMENTING IT INTO WORLD WAR II WAS BASED ON DELIBERATE CONSPIRACY, DISHONESTY, AND CONTRARY TO THE GOOD OF AMERICA AND THE WORLD, THE CONSEQUENCES OF WHICH WE ARE STILL REAPING TODAY.

It is also a solid proof as to why now, before the 2012 presidential elections, Americans should more thoroughly, constitutionally, and dispassionately consider just why both major parties have candidates (mainly CFR members) who are invoking war with Iran, among others, for continued wars for Democracy and giving foreign aid and allying with other countries who even have contrary principles (e.g. Israel is undemocratic and blatantly racist and has WMD, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, et al), upon false pretenses of "terrorist threat", "WMD" and rhetorical "mushroom clouds" (Gingrich pulled that to justify the PATRIOT ACT yesterday in debate against Ron Paul), as the U.S. government enlarges itself and continues to trample our Constitution and lead us toward Global Government, while indebting and bankrupting itself, ruining our money and economy on our hard-working backs. As former President Hoover will show, the Great Deceiver, Franklin D. Roosevelt, did the same thing, and unfortunately, though challenged, got away with it. But now historical truth catches and indicts him for what he did, so that hopefully Americans today can prevent it again, and see more clearly exactly the mess we are in today by consequence.

Freedom Betrayed
George H. Nash - 11/15/11

In November 1951, a public relations executive named John W. Hill met Herbert Hoover at a dinner in New York City. It was an unhappy time in the United States, especially for conservative Republicans. Abroad, the Korean War had turned into a bloody stalemate that President Harry Truman’s administration seemed unable to end. Earlier in the year, the president had abruptly dismissed General Douglas MacArthur, a conservative hero, from America’s Far Eastern military command, to the consternation of Hoover and millions of others. At home, Truman’s liberal Democratic administration was under furious assault from conservative critics of its policies toward communist regimes overseas and communist subversion within our borders.

How quickly the world had changed since the close of the Second World War a few years earlier. Then the future had seemed bright with promise. Nazi Germany and imperial Japan had been crushed; fascism as an ideology had been discredited; the birth of the United Nations had appeared to presage an era of global peace. Now, a mere six years later, in Asia and along the Iron Curtain in Europe, a third world war—this time against communist Russia and China—seemed a distinct possibility.

“Mr. Hoover,” said Hill that November evening, “the world is in one hell of a mess, isn’t it?”

“It certainly is,” Hoover replied.

“It has always occurred to me,” Hill continued, “that we are in this mess because of the mistakes of statesmen. Somebody ought to write a book [on the subject] like [E. S. Creasy’s] ‘Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World’; I think it would be a classic.”

“You are absolutely right,” Hoover responded. “That should be done, and I am going to tell you what should be the first chapter.”

“What is that?” asked Hill.

“When Roosevelt put America in to help Russia as Hitler invaded Russia in June, 1941. We should have let those two bastards annihilate themselves.”

Hill was delighted. “That would be a great book. Why don’t you write it, Mr. Hoover?”

“I haven’t the time,” Hoover countered. “Why don’t you write it?”

What Hill did not know—and what Hoover, that evening, did not tell him—was that for several years Hoover had been at work on a book with a similar theme: a comprehensive, critical history of American diplomacy between the late 1930s and 1945, with emphasis on the misguided policies of President Roosevelt. It was a volume in which the Roosevelt administration’s wartime alliance with the Soviet Union would be subject to withering scrutiny.

Twenty years later, in 1971, in a conversation with an interviewer, Hill lamented that no one had ever written the book he had once proposed to Hoover on “The Fifteen Decisive Blunders of Statesmen.” “I have always wished somebody would do it,” he added. “It would be controversial because every one of the decisions the author stated would cause trouble, would cause somebody to come up and defend it, and the book would sell like hotcakes.”

What Hill did not realize was that nearly eight years earlier Hoover had completed his own book of diplomatic blunders. Unlike the scattershot collection of essays that Hill had envisaged, Hoover’s tome was tightly focused. Originally conceived as the section of his memoirs that would cover his life during World War II, the “War Book” (as he called it) had morphed into something far more ambitious: an unabashed, revisionist reexamination of the entire war—and a sweeping indictment of the “lost statesmanship” of Franklin Roosevelt.

Hoover ultimately entitled his manuscript Freedom Betrayed. More informally, and with a touch of humor, he and his staff came to refer to it as the Magnum Opus. The label was apt. For nearly two decades, beginning in 1944, the former president labored over his massive manuscript, producing draft after draft, “edition” after “edition.” He finished the final version (save for some minor editing and additional fact-checking) in September 1963 and prepared in the ensuing months for the book’s publication. Death came first, on October 20, 1964. A little over two months earlier, he had turned ninety years old.

After Hoover’s passing, his heirs decided not to publish his Magnum Opus. Since then, for nearly half a century, it has remained in storage, unavailable for examination.

The new volume Freedom Betrayed presents the book in its final, author-approved edition of 1963–64. It is published—and its contents thereby made available to scholars—for the first time.

Are Conservative Christians Stupid? We Don’t Need Another George W. Bush

UPDATE:  For any Christians or conservatives offended please consider this.  Here is more evidence that candidate Gov. Rick Perry is not a true Tea Party or Constitutional conservative, but another painted RINO flying "Christian" colors to capture the evangelical vote (which is too easily misled by superficial symbolic acts and rhetoric). Is conservative columnist Michelle Malkin a credible enough critic?

Earlier this week, Michelle Malkin went after Rick Perry over the human papillomavirus vaccine mandates he authorized as governor. Two days later, she followed up with a second scorching post, this time saying Perry was “soft on illegal immigration” and “prone to crony capitalism” — and that he “demonstrated Nanny State tendencies that are anathema to Tea Party core principles.”
Read more:


Here is a timely article about the entry of Governor Rick Perry into the Republican race for President. This article's Christian and conservative writer is not the only one who smells something funny about the way Perry has chosen to launch his campaign (and his article proves he predicted his entry correctly), and how familiar it appears to the entry of a previous Texas governor, who put on a big Christian front in order to sell his pretended conservative credentials. Is not Rick Perry copy-catting the Karl Rove play-book in his launch? Will Constitutional or Tea Party conservatives fall for this trick again? Will the Tea Party or the social conservative electorate be neo-conned, again, by another "Christian" Texan? Hopefully, this will be a wake up call to check for evidence of RINO clothing before another huge mistake is made. Perry's recent "show" is alluded to which had all the gimmickry of a slick Televangelist to it. If anyone believes that Perry would lead a "Christian political revival" of America they are easily deceived and truly naive. Ask yourself, first, if you would buy another car from the last used car salesman that sold you a lemon, even though polished and presented in fresh paint.

We Don’t Need Another George W. Bush

As a fellow Texan, it was not lost on Rick Perry how George W. Bush obtained the Republican nomination–and eventually the White House. In short, Rick Perry is going to use the G.W. Bush model to win a Presidential election.

Think about it: G.W. Bush won the White House after an extremely unpopular liberal Democrat had been President. Barack Obama’s popularity is even lower than Bill Clinton’s was–and Clinton was only the second President in US history to ever be impeached! Bush’s campaign boss, Karl Rove, brilliantly painted G.W. Bush as being a wholesome “born again Christian,” which played very well with a Christian electorate that was tired of being embarrassed by a lying, philandering reprobate living in the White House...

....Billed as “A Day of Prayer and Fasting,” the event solidified Perry’s preferred status among evangelical Christians. With the help of the American Family Association (which reportedly contributed up to a million dollars to the event), James Dobson’s Focus on the Family, and Cornerstone Church’s (San Antonio) Pastor John Hagee, Perry is all but assured of cornering the “born again” vote, just as G.W. Bush did in 2000.

...For the record, I invite anyone out there who still labors under the delusion that George W. Bush presided over some kind of “born again” Christian administration to check out the vast amounts of information I have compiled on my web site that exposes Bush as being just another big government elitist, who did as much (or more) to strip America of its God-given liberties as any other President in history. See the record here.

..Of course, G.W. Bush was never held accountable by evangelical Christian voters for his unconstitutional conduct. All they cared about was Bush’s Christian rhetoric. And it does appear that is all they care about today. As a result, Rick Perry will prove to be a formidable candidate in the GOP primaries.

I have said over and over again that I would rather vote for an unbeliever who would preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, than vote for a believer who would NOT preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States! The pious rhetoric of political candidates means nothing!

The Bible, Christianity, and Reason vs. Political-Correctness about Homosexuality

 While the media continues to brow-beat Americans into bowing to the "equal rights" agenda of the LGBT lobby, many are still speaking and preaching the truth that is now considered politically-incorrect as new legislation is advanced.  Here below is a plain speaking Sunday Sermon worth hearing against the politicizing of homosexuality, and even "same-sex marriage" (an oxymoron) now, into forced acceptance (by about 2 percent of the population upon everyone else!), and a thorough review of what the Bible plainly teaches as Christian doctrine on the subject.   The preacher goes through the Bible thoroughly demonstrating the opposition of God, who does not "make" homosexuals as either a gender, or condone their perverse and unnatural behavior (any more than He does the incestuous, pedophiles, zoophiles [beastiality, as is now reported], adulterers, etc), but to the contrary has historically abhorred, abominated, outlawed, banished, and punished it in no uncertain terms as a social disease and a provoking crime against heaven which he threatens to judge.  (Here is the One who 'judges', for all those who condemn all judging, with righteous judgment, and legally delegates that same judgment to governments to enforce; as the named Kings of Israel did for a "light of the nations", and as until recent history was still outlawed in American states). 

It should be also noteworthy by historical accounts that no great empires (Canaanite, Hittite, Babylonian, Greek, Roman--and remember Pompeii) or civilizations have ever continued when gross moral corruption, among which was sodomy and homosexuality, was permitted to flourish; and wherever homosexuality was prevalent, so was pedophilia and abuse of young children also a common feature (e.g. Greece under Alexander the Great).  If "gay rights" is given full legal status, pedophilia and statutory rape will soon be legalized as "sexual orientation" as well, and even beastiality is no longer a crime.  Yet "equal rights" for gross aberrant behavior that spreads real disease is to be accepted by force of the LBGT lobby on all, if everyone lies down for them.  The preacher calls to attention the original name of AIDS, and we know just how that was spread to everyone else.  The truth is, we are in the midst of a Moral Pandemic, which has societal and health consequences, which the government is aiding and abetting, under pressure of a special behavioral interest group (not a nationality, race or gender "identity") which behavior was formerly illegal!

It begins with an examination of the sin--i.e. "going after strange flesh"--of the people of Sodom, which was "made an example of" (see Jewish archeology study; and from which the behavior has historically been named for, i.e. Sodomy, for the 'men of Sodom' lewd behavior), which is sometimes debated.  Sodom destroyed now lies under or near the Dead Sea (a Salt Sea) which the Jewish historian Josephus called Lake Asphaltites (asphalt, note the "tar pits" in which the Kings of Sodom fell into in Genesis earlier, until Abraham saved them along with Lot).  Let the Bibliophobes and Christophobes mock, but this is what the Bible teaches plainly which liberal churches, like the apostate Evangelical Luthern Church, Presbyterians Church (USA), and some others who speak different (contrary to their founders Luther, Knox, and Wesley, who would scold them) and are willfully blind toIntellectual honesty demands this conclusion from the Scriptures, and so this is the view of conservative Christians in West Virginia without a doubt, even those who nominally grew up in church, across all political party lines.

Note too in this message, that Sodomites are enslaved to passion, and cannot be appealed to by reason, i.e. they must have what they want, and oppose all who resist, have no moderation or conscience but are brazen in their lust, and therefore are violent, and rebel against governments like brute beasts, as exemplified both toward governor Lot and the "visitors" in the dramatic account.  They have pursued coercing their "rights" from government with the same violence today, including their speech used to abuse and deride others as "hateful" and "bigots", with their own hateful speeches, as if they have no malice toward Christians or others who oppose them.  It is all so familiar in the account, even as they now are turning their heat on President Obama (even though he is more liberal than Lot), to coerce him to endorse Sodomite Marriage (see next link below).

(Must enable Sermon Audio javascripts to see and activate the media player below).

So are Christians supposed to let their 'religious freedom' and 'freedom of expression', which the Constitution protects, be countered by new social opinions or even strange new government laws, as in New York Friday, which legalized "same-sex marriage", to couples who cannot engage in the marital activity of procreation and family?  To the contrary, Christian and Bible beliefs about homosexuality cannot be outlawed or silenced by tyrannical persecution by government, media, or anyone else.  Unfortunately, this is what is happening when unnatural marriage or homosexuality generally is given legal protection or authorization--religious freedom is lost in regards to individual liberty of action in terms of association, property rights, and even speech and press.  WHEN HOMOSEXUAL "RIGHTS" OR "MARRIAGE" IS LEGALIZED CHRISTIAN LIBERTY AND RIGHTS IS OPENLY PERSECUTED, CENSORED OR CONDEMNED BY GOVERNMENT, AND THE NEW MORALITY IS ENFORCED OVER THEM.  And this is by the people that always said "you cannot legislate morality", except their counter-Christian morality!  It is not only Christians that oppose homosexuality either.  It is the radical politicalization of this subject that has drown out all rationality and the abusive legal consequences of the "gay rights" agenda.

In truth, however, freedom of speech and press remains wide open for all opposed to homosexuality, and the legalizing of it and "marriage", to engage against it freely, with full protection of the highest law as Supreme Court decisions have recently made clear.  Christians will have to go to court to appeal to the Constitution to defend their liberty to act upon their own beliefs, which are also rational and just (as even nature exemplifies), and the normative historical precedent, since heterosexual marriage has been the exclusive practice and law in all of human history, since the dawn of civilization.

If West Virginia legislators even think about debating what was done in New York, they had better think about what it will cost them politically to even entertain such a wicked bill on the House or Senate floor.  And they can look at how well the LGBT lobby's point man, Senator Kessler, did in his attempt in the gubernatorial primary as an example.

FANATICISM: Sports, Not Religion, Is the Real "Opiate of the People"

Professional sports, which includes College Sports--which is definitely for money and profit in the "Higher Education" world--in truth is a waste of valuable time.  Do people consider that sports coaches of universities are the most highly paid positions in State government?  (Note in the link that West Virginia pays more for sports than others in the Big East, even as a much poorer state!)  Is that not a dangerous fanaticism?  Should that not offend and disturb us as "taxpayers"?  Where is a "tea party" against that abuse of government spending within "higher education"?  Are sports coaches the instruments of justice or legislative representation, or executive authority?  Is it not shameful that they outstrip Governors and Justices in taxpayer renumeration--and without the consent of many outside the institution of "higher learning"?  And those who spend their emotions on sports teams and watch every game proudly call themselves "fanatics".    Now this only proves that it is politically correct and acceptable to be a sports fanatic, while at the same time, if anyone cares "too much" about political issues of government, or religious issues in particular, others hurl the epitaph "fanatic" as a term of derision, from which sports "fans" are immune, despite their candid admission. 

The media in particular is guilty of this irrational value process and for feeding the sports frenzy,  for profit, because sports news "sells newspapers" and boost radio and TV ratings.  That is why Hoppy Kercheval on state-wide talk radio will actually spend more time discussing any changes at WVU, even in the midst of important legislative or serious matters which most of the public is largely, and willingly ignorant of.  Such is the mark of not an intellectual society, but a hedonistic one. (Illegal drug use is in fact the same hedonism principle in its purest form of pleasure vs pain and mental escapism, and modern opiates such as Meth, are another clue this is true of society).  The truth is, if everyone were serious minded and lived in reality, instead of in virtual reality (movies, mass entertainment, fiction or "reality shows" on TV, etc), things could be for the better in government, social and intellectual thinking, and religious morality and rational sober living.

The following video, in an entertaining manner, shows how there is a social consensus which is irrational that permits one kind of fanaticism to drown out really the only important matters in life, where everyone's real problems exist.  Sports is indeed the Opiate pain-killer and distraction, then, which religion has been branded for irrationally.

The controversy over the USA PATRIOT ACT is not about whether to stop terrorists.  It is about how much power, arbitrary and unregulated power, the Government should have, and the legal limits the Constitution places on the government as the supreme law of the land in the 4th amendment.  Senator Paul makes the argument that Americans ought to be as free in the hunt for terrorists as we are (or should be) in the hunt for criminals, where the 4th amendment regularly restrains with mostly understanding approval from the public.  It is really not "terrorists" that are being put under surveillance, being screened, searched, and even seized at airports, and having their personal information data-mined on an ongoing basis by the Leviathan called the Dept. of Homeland Security as well as local and state governments since Sept. 11th.  It is "free Americans" in their daily lives.  Ironic, is it not?

So it's about time that someone taught a lesson on the PATRIOT ACT, and on the occasion of its coming up for renewal Senator Paul took it up.  It is not just the Congress that is ignorant on just how bad the so-called USA PATRIOT ACT is.  It is the ignorant, easily manipulated, flag-waving electorate that sent them there.  It's time for a hard look at this dangerous legislation to dispel the inexcusable ignorance that is leading to the killing of our freedoms while claiming to "defend" them from terrorists.  Senator Paul's arguments in this are clear and convincing.  Unless you believe that the U.S. government should have unlimited totalitarian powers, contrary to the Constitution, you should reconsider your view about the PATRIOT ACT and just how "necessary" it is, and what its ramifications are to freedom in America.  This is not a partisan issue.  It is a Constitutional and 4th amendment issue.  This is also why the late Senator Byrd changed his votes and withdrew his support on it, whenever provisional renewals came up. 

But since Congress stupidly voted to extend it, everything said will explain the freedom from government intrusion (and identity thieves) that you lost with that vote, under phony pretense of its patriotic sir-name!  Americans are foolishly encaging themselves to a rogue government that has grabbed the most unprecedented powers for itself, since the one we opposed in 1776, which Senator Paul alludes to also.  (Well, on second thought, the greatest power seized since Lincoln in 1861, which most Americans today are just as ignorant of, and ignorance is not bliss).

A Civil War Podcast: Why Virginia Seceded, West Virginia Formed

Presently there is a 150th Anniversary called a Sesquicentennial of the Civil War ongoing that is supported by State governments for tourism as well as for American education.  West Virginia's Sesquicentennial website is here.  It is an excellent time (and very relevant to today) to reconsider this major event in American history which transformed America.

The link below will take you to an excellent podcast tracing weekly the events leading up to and including the so-called Civil War from a Longwood University professor in Virginia which is worth subscribing to. Every American should know the documented truth (not the politically-correct propaganda version) about this Great Conflict which cost the lives of over 620,000 Americans, more than all U.S. wars combined. History is absolutely essential for discovering our present context which puts and interprets current events in better light. The history of the Civil War teaches alot about the true nature of the present U.S. Federal Government, which changed entirely from this historic event, despite flying a similar flag. Every family, and school, could benefit from this short weekly podcast.

The Civil War was nothing less than another Revolution of Government (for that is what the Southern States declared in justification of their seceding) in which the northern section, and their principles, usurped and turned the Federal Government in Washington D.C. into a Central Power over the previously sovereign and independent states. Slavery was only part of the issue, which even Lincoln declared he had no right to abolish or outlaw when he took office (as the earlier podcasts prove), for the larger principles of Union and Liberty came into conflict, i.e. National Federalism vs. State's Rights. What is now called Big Government began here with a war waged by Washington D.C. against the States who formed her! Thus the Union was "saved" or reformed at gunpoint. To be brought back into a union by force most all will recognize as some form of tyranny instead of freedom. Ironically, those who opposed a centralized power in Washington were then the Democrats (back then Dixie-crats!), and it was Lincoln's radical (called "Red") Republicans who wanted to tyrannize the states, contrary to "Tea Partiers" today!

Nothing highlights more how the Federal Government changed than this podcast here since it includes the Secession of Virginia and the formation of West Virginia, which is obscured in the title. Virginia had voted against secession until President Lincoln tried to raise armies in the southern states to wage war against the states seceding. That changed everything, and Virginia seceded on April 17, 1961 (see Ordinance of Secession in previous post). Every West Virginian should know this and also read the State Cultural Center's archives on the formation of West Virginia, "An Illegal Act?" which is enlightening for a better understanding about both the U.S. government and this state's origins.

This video presents a short clip of history that most Americans know nothing about:  The Internment and/or Deportation of 300,000 German-Americans citizens during WWII, contrary to the Constitution.  Most have heard about Japanese Internment camps, but not this.

This video was taken recently upon a visit to Virginia where the museum in Salem was exhibiting this actual German-American Internment Bus.

150 Years Ago: Virginia Secedes From Union, Federal Government Perverted Its Powers

                Virginia Ordinance of Secession
April 17, 1861 Virgina Secession Convention approves the wording of a referendum of secession and calls for a popular vote to approve it.

AN ORDINANCE to repeal the ratification of the Constitution of the United State of America by the State of Virginia, and to resume all the rights and powers granted under said Constitution.

The people of Virginia in their ratification of the Constitution of the United States of America, adopted by them in convention on the twenty-fifth day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, having declared that the powers granted under said Constitution were derived from the people of the United States and might be resumed whensoever the same should be perverted to their injury and oppression, and the Federal Government having perverted said powers not only to the injury of the people of Virginia, but to the oppression of the Southern slave-holding States:

Now, therefore, we, the people of Virginia, do declare and ordain, That the ordinance adopted by the people of this State in convention on the twenty-fifth day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, whereby the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified, and all acts of the General Assembly of this State ratifying and adopting amendments to said Constitution, are hereby repealed and abrogated; that the union between the State of Virginia and the other States under the Constitution aforesaid is hereby dissolved, and that the State of Virginia is in the full possession and exercise of all the rights of sovereignty which belong and appertain to a free and independent State.

And they do further declare, That said Constitution of the United States of America is no longer binding on any of the citizens of this State.

This ordinance shall take effect and be an act of this day, when ratified by a majority of the voter of the people of this State cast at a poll to be taken thereon on the fourth Thursday in May next, in pursuance of a schedule hereafter to be enacted.

Adopted by the convention of Virginia April 17,1861.

May 23, 1861 Virginia ratifies the Secessionist Convention referendum by a vote of 132,201 to 37,451

3-11-11: Japan's 8.9 Superquake and Tsunami, Tokyo Sways!

Haiti in 2010.  Japan in 2011.  What country is next?  West Virginia experienced about 4 quakes in the last year.  Indiana and Arkansas had quakes in early March.  Experts say the New Madrid Fault (Ohio and  Mississippi River states) is over due, and symptoms have been appearing of late.

Consider what a superquake and tsunami might do to the East Coast--New York, Baltimore, etc., that lie as low as these cities on the coastline.

Welfare State: Handouts Make Up One-Third of U.S. Wages

Government payouts—including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance—make up more than a third of total wages and salaries of the U.S. population, a record figure that will only increase if action isn’t taken before the majority of Baby Boomers enter retirement.

FOX: Two Eye-Witnesses of "Christmas Bomber" Claim Gov't Agents Enabled Event

Ever since the "Underwear Christmas Bomber" story broke numerous questions came up about just how this very odd individual could have boarded the plane without a passport, how such an innocuous "bomb" could possibly have been successfully detonated, and who really was behind it when this young man is very apparently unintelligent and inept.  But since then Michael Chertoff (former head of Homeland Tyranny, aka Security) has profited much by pushing his company's new and controversial airport body scanners into use by TSA while the very unconstitutional Dept of Homeland Security has continued to expand and the PATRIOT ACT (which violates the 4th amendment for every American) has been extended, and the "war on terrorism" (i.e. Operation "Regime Change" in the Middle East with Israel) has continued under President Obama. 

A local FOX news Detroit station has been following the story closely and especially that two eye-witnesses, Kurt and Lori Haskell (married), and both attorneys, saw the man, and insist that he was given special assistance, and an impotent bomb device, deliberately, by U.S. intelligence agents (perhaps as a drill) that ended up being used for propaganda!  The FBI has no comment.

Taking Modern Christianity to Task, The Consequences of Corruption

This surprisingly forthright sermon and message takes on the corruptions of modern Christianity, or Churchianity, and takes to task both popular televangelists (including T.D. Jakes, still praised much in West Virginia) and typical pastors and churches, which has contributed much to resentment and fueled the vehement opposition and outright hatred by those who oppose Christianity and write against its Bible, standards and beliefs in the press, society, and government.   It is also evidence that there are vehement critics within Christianity which desire a major reformation since these corruptions have damaged the credibility and once stronger influence of genuine Christian teachings in society.

The speaker in this Sermonaudio podcast entitled "Modern Church Nonsense" does not hold back and shows just how relevant an Old Testament prophet's book, Amos--which secularists and liberal churches typically mock at as ancient and not applicable to modern society-- is for today in the 21st Century.  After it was preached in 2007, it was followed interestingly by the banking, real estate and financial and economic crisis, that has dominated the last few years now, making the message and its warnings even more relevant.
