Take A Stand Against Evil Men

UPDATED with donation info & LINK at bottom!!

Psalm 140

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men;

preserve me from violent men,

who plan evil things in their heart

and stir up wars continually.

They make their tongue sharp as a serpent’s,

and under their lips is the venom of asps. Selah

Guard me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;

preserve me from violent men,

who have planned to trip up my feet.

The arrogant have hidden a trap for me,

and with cords they have spread a net,

beside the way they have set snares for me. Selah

I say to the Lord, You are my God;

give ear to the voice of my pleas for mercy, O Lord!

O Lord, my Lord,the strength of my salvation,

you have covered my head in the day of battle.

Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;

do not further their evil plot, or they will be exalted! Selah

As for the head of those who surround me,

let the mischief of their lips overwhelm them!

Let burning coals fall upon them!

Let them be cast into fire,

into miry pits, no more to rise!

Let not the slanderer be established in the land;

let evil hunt down the violent man speedily!

I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted,

and will execute justice for the needy.

Surely the righteous shall give thanks to your name;

the upright shall dwell in your presence.

At one point I think I mentioned that this is not a political blog, and that is true.  Mostly.  I also blog about ‘life’ and politics does affect my life and yours.

The Patriarch and I found THAT out in the early 90’s when we were mugged by reality (as Rush Limbaugh would say).  I used to think that all those decisions being made w-a-y out in Washington DC didn’t really affect my life.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.  EVERYTHING they do in DC does affect my life, my business, my family… and yours.

So what am I blogging about today?  Brett Kimberlin.

Oh, you never heard of him either?  Um… then why am I writing about some guy I never heard of?

He is attacking bloggers who dare to expose his criminal past and his connections to Soros and his liberal activist activities.  You can get a brief overview of his sordid past by watching this short YouTube:

Do not make the mistake that this is a partisan issue, for it is NOT.  Brett Kimberlin is only using the liberal left for his own personal monetary gain.  He has also attacked at least one liberal-left blogger.

Here is a post by one of Kimberlin’s victims: Never Doubt That God Answers Prayers

Another Kimberlin victim: http://patterico.com/  “Having fought this battle largely alone for so long, with the help of only a small handful of close friends, I felt like George Bailey once I realized how many friends I have out there.”

What Kimberlin does is called “lawfare”.  He uses the law as a means of attack.  It is in effect what Saul Alinsky recommended in his book “Rules for Radicals”.

RULE 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.

RULE 2: “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

RULE 6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more.They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.

RULE 7: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.

RULE 8: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

RULE 9: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.

RULE 10: “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.

RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

Friday, May 25th was blog about Kimberlin day.  You can read a bit about that and the reasoning behind it here.  Due to a problem with The Patriarch’s computer I didn’t find about about this until Saturday and started this post then.

You will find that this domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin is being funded by us!  When the Barbara Streisand Foundation, Theresa Heinz’s Heinz Foundation or George Soros’ Tides Foundation donate to one of Brett Kimberlin’s “charitable endeavors” it is a tax deduction!  Here is another post all about Kimberlin’s funding and how YOU can help by donating.

From this moment forward I will NEVER purchase another Heinz product.  Of course the first thing you think of is… ketchup.  Lots of that being consumed today on “National BBQ Day”.  But NOT in our home and NEVER again.  I have found an EXCELLENT alternative the Heinz ketchup.  It is Kroger’s Naturally Preferred organic ketchup.  Tastes great, uses NO GMO corn sweeteners, NO high fructose corn sweeteners and is reasonably priced.

So just what is a stay-at-home wife & homeschooling mom doing blogging about this?

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

Samual Adams Quote

“The liberties of our country,

the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards;

it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.

We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors.

They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood.

It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation

– enlightened as it is – 

if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”

– Samuel Adams

Well, today I must be on a tear…

The State of the Church

This is so true of the church today in 2012 much less in 1879…

“There is a common complaint in these days, that there is a lack of power in Christianity, and that the church does not shake the world as it did in former years. Shall I tell you what the reason is, in plain words? It is the low tone of life which is so sadly prevalent among professing believers. I believe we fall far short in our standard of Christian practice.

The times require a higher standard of personal holiness, and an increased attention to practical religion in daily life.

I must honestly declare my conviction, that there never has been . . .
so much profession of religion–without practice,
so much talking about God–without walking with Him,
so much hearing God’s Words–without doing them,
as there is at this present date!

Never were there so many empty tubs and tinkling cymbals!

Never was there so much formality–and so little reality!

The whole tone of men’s minds on what constitutes practical Christianity seems lowered. The old golden standard of the behavior which befits a Christian, appears debased and degenerated. You may see scores of religious people (so-called) continually doing things which in days gone by, would have been thought utterly inconsistent with vital Christianity! They see no harm in such things as theater-going, dancing, incessant novel reading–and they cannot in the least understand what you mean by objecting to them! The ancient tenderness of conscience about such things seems dying away and becoming extinct, like the dodo-bird.

And when you venture to remonstrate with those who indulge in them, they only stare at you as an old-fashioned, narrow-minded, fossilized person, and say, “What is the harm?” In short, laxity and levity are the common characteristics of the rising generation of professors.

Where is . . .
the self-denial,
the redemption of time,
the absence of luxury and self-indulgence,
the unmistakable separation from earthly things,
the manifest air of being always about our Master’s business,
the singleness of eye,
the simplicity of home life,
the high tone of conversation in society,
the patience, the humility, the universal love–
which marked Christians seventy or eighty years ago? Yes, where is it indeed? We have inherited their principles–but I fear we have not inherited their practice!

The Holy Spirit sees it–and is grieved! The world sees it–and despises us. The world sees it–and cares little for our testimony. It is life, life–a heavenly, godly, Christ-like life–depend on it, which influences the world!”

J. C. Ryle in 1879

We need more preachers who preach like this and not the ‘feel good’ twaddle most are fed in the church today!

The Day Before Election Day 2010

Tomorrow is voting day.  Here in western Washington there has been plenty of corruption in the political arena.  Our corrupted-by-the-Seattle-liberals gubernatorial race a few years back even made national news.  You know, I really do tend towards a positive outlook on life.  But… I wonder if that same corruption will rear it’s ugly head once again to thwart the way the people have really voted.  I know many are pinning their hopes upon these races which will be decided tomorrow.

But people are not generally good.  Their hearts are evil all of the time.

Jeremiah: 17:9-10 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure.  Who can understand it?  “I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct,  according to what his deeds deserve.”

I also know that God is sovereign in all things.  Even political outcomes.  And I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I can trust God completely.

Ps. 103:19 “the Lord has established His throne in the heavens; and His sovereignty rules over all.”

I Chron. 29:11,12 – “Thine, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the  victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth: Thine is the  dominion, O Lord, and Thou doest exalt Thyself as head over all. Both riches and honor  come from Thee, and Thou dost rule over all, and in Thy hand is power and might; and it  lies in Thy hand to make great, and to strengthen everyone.”

Psalm 40:4
Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.
Psalm 111:7
The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.

John 14:1
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.

Then there is the matter of how I live out my faith (orthopraxy) and that this should also express my doctrinal beliefs (orthodoxy).  How I dress, train my children, what books I read, what movies I watch, whom I vote for… these are all things I must bring under the authority of scripture.

1 Corinthians 10:31
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

 

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

How am I to vote with integrity?  Where do I get my information?  Do I place all my trust in the media?  The notion of  “objective journalism”  is a complete myth.  Media is related to mediate which is to convey between.  But what is their motive for relaying that information in that way?  Have they presented all the information or is some held back?  Has the information been presented in a way to make it seem to say what it never intended to say?  Who are they trying to please?  It is my goal for this simple blog to glorify God.  Don’t get me wrong, I like being liked!  But if I try to please everyone, I wind up pleasing no one, particularly my Lord Jesus Christ.

In my small effort to help you make an informed decision tomorrow, I offer you these videos and quotes.

“The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.”
Patrick Henry

“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”
Patrick Henry

“It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.”
Patrick Henry

“The battle, Sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, Sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable; and let it come! I repeat, Sir, let it come!”
Patrick Henry

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
Patrick Henry

“Bad men cannot make good citizens. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience are incompatible with freedom.”
Patrick Henry

Let us make informed, wise choices at the polls!  Vote early.

Praying About Child Training…?

“So why must we pray about whether or not to send our kids away to be trained by  institutions for the best forty hours of every week?  Most parents won’t share their car keys or pin numbers with anyone, yet they’ll give strangers complete, unsupervised access to their most valuable treasures–their offspring–without a second thought.”

from Old Schoolhouse magazine article “The Princess or the Pack Mule” by Denise Mira

By “institutions” that are directly opposed to Christian values no less!

Imperfect & Deficient…

I read this quote today and I found it VERY encouraging. I struggle with the wretched-ness I still see within me. I hope you are blessed by this as I was!
~Mrs. R

I am not what I ought to be — ah, how imperfect and deficient! I am not what I wish to be — I abhor what is evil, and I would cleave to what is good! I am not what I hope to be — soon, soon shall I put off mortality, and with mortality all sin and imperfection. Yet, though I am not what I ought to be, nor what I wish to be, nor what I hope to be, I can truly say, I am not what I once was; a slave to sin and Satan; and I can heartily join with the apostle, and acknowledge, “By the grace of God I am what I am.” John Newton
