IT'S BEEN A LONG AND SHAMEFUL YEAR
By Jill Cohen Walker, J.D.
Okay, so it wasn’t all that bad, or was it? I was chatting with friends by phone and in person over the days before and after Christmas while waiting for my former employer to send me to a doctor for work-related injuries. I doubt they’d wait a month to see a doctor, but I sure did. I’ll probably write more on that at another time after I finish the two series I started months ago.
Fortunately, my brain and ability to speak wasn’t injured, so I decided to explore some of what my friends had to say. Couched in terms of what the media (those mavens of propaganda) report, it’s been a terrible year for everyone. I’ll leave that for you to decide. I did, however, make a list of everything that made my antenna go up and my blood boil. Some of the items on my “it’s been a long and shameful year” list aren’t new, just reinvented or refined. Others bear a little more scrutiny.
What I did notice is that truth (which is not a concept or a thing if we believe that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Light) has a way of stepping up to the plate, even at the eleventh hour. Here’s some of what made this year shameful (and I’ve just scratched the surface with the help of my friend Shirley Korte and my friend and co-author, Jack L. Kemp. See what you can come up with and let me know.):
1. No one will sing “All We Need is Love” to create national unity because keeping the races at odds with one another is a major component of the New World Order agenda. Keep an eye on the news and watch how happy newscasters are when they tell us about skirmishes and civil wars around the globe. Sounds a lot like “wars and rumors of wars” to me, but what does Matthew 24 have to do with current world events?
2. Everything Clinton did is praised, but when Bush does the same things, he’s raked over the coals by the media, and elected and unelected officials. Clinton must be the quintessential Teflon™ man (which a good start for the man who wants to be Secretary General of the UN).
3. Half our government (especially elected officials) is angry with Corporate America because the competition is too stiff. The government just can’t run anything right so why have we allowed it to become a commercial enterprise that sells mortgages, student loans, and over-regulates businesses, while failing to protect American workers?
4. Corporations can now mandate that one worker does the jobs of six workers for the same pay and if he complains, his job will be sent overseas. And our government supports this and says it will help our economy. Do those folks think we’re that stupid?
5. The US isn’t a capitalist nation anymore, it’s a socialist hybrid created by the economic geniuses (aka Marxist Communists) in Washington, DC and at the UN.
6. Separation of church and state may be getting old and tired, but it’s still being used incorrectly to destroy America’s religious heritage. And that’s the real issue: that it’s become a heritage rather than a current reality. Evidently the words of Jefferson in a letter to a Baptist minister in Danbury, CT carry more weight than the First Amendment, unless the students are being converted to Islam as part of their social studies classes.
7. Our Constitution is rapidly becoming irrelevant as the Communist dictates of the UN Charter encroach deeper and deeper into our legal system. But just because 59 other nations have tried Communism and failed doesn’t mean that it will fail here. (Of course, our legal system’s integrity is in question as we fall deeper and deeper into a “magical, mystery” oligarchy.)
8. A liberal hack of a district attorney with a history of filing phony charges against Republicans again filed specious indictments against Tom Delay while the Democrats cheered him on.
9. Four years ago, the lunatic liberal fringe accused the president of knowing that the 911 attacks were coming. Now, if he tries to find out if other attacks are on the way, he gets slapped down for doing something Clinton did without any kind of harm to his career.
10. That paragon of fair play and American patriotism, Ramsey Clark, decided to offer his help to the “oppressed” former president of Iraq (the guy they found living in an underground hole).
11. Terrorists are really insurgents or freedom fighters who believe there’s an unlimited supply of virgins waiting to be defiled by them in paradise. Evidently in their “paradise,” if they get tired of defiling the virgin women, they can switch to defiling an unlimited supply of little boys.
12. Baghdad and Jerusalem are really suburbs of Washington, DC, but have no fear. They’re really under the control of the United Nations. All they need is a few bomb control laws to make things safer so we can all sing Kumbaya.
13. Land for peace was shown to be as effective as ever when Ariel Sharon sneeringly rejected God’s promise of Israel, gave the so-called Palestinians the Gaza Strip, and Israel was promptly shelled from their new forward position. It’s a heck of a plan, that land for peace, isn’t it?
14. A nut bag with nuclear ambitions and a desire to make the world an enlightened 6th century Islamic paradise thumbs his nose at the all-powerful UN.
15. The Secret Service in Israel terrorized those who demonstrated against the Gaza pullout. Sounds like real patriotism on the part of the Israeli Secret Service.
16. The Aryan Nations, ever the peaceful ones, joined forces with terrorist groups around the globe, and endorsed the Final Solution . . . again. That means they all want to kill the Jews . . . again.
17. The mullahs of Iran showed their desire to emulate the Democratic (party) process in this country when they shipped thousands of ballots (which were pre-completed for the voters’ convenience) to Iraq for the recent elections.
18. When Hurricane Katrina killed 3,000 or so people, it was the wrath of Allah, but when 60,000 or so died in an earthquake in Muslim Central Asia . . . I guess Allah’s aim wasn’t so good then.
19. Kwanzaa is, as Ann Coulter wrote in her December 28, 2005 column titled “Kwanzaa: A holiday from the FBI,” an invention of a Caucasian-hating murderer who now has a cushy job at a California university. This is part of a UN/Communist/Marxist/ Liberal mandate first promulgated by that bastion of freedom and liberty for all peoples (except Jews and Christians), the United Nations. The re-education of our young people ought to bear some interesting fruit when they're running the show . . . if there’s a show left to run.
20. The powers that be are into a divide-and-conquer-all-Americans mode—young against old, healthy against disabled, rich against poor, liberal against conservative, godless against the godly, and intelligent and discerning against the Mainstream Media (hereinafter referred to as the MSM).
21. Disabled women can now be murdered by their philandering husbands as part of a get-rich-quick scheme (as well as accruing awards from organizations that support death on demand) based solely on hearsay testimony. I hear there’s even a cruise for the death advocacy people taking place. With any luck, they’ll hit a mine or get torpedoed. (Has anyone told them that death worship is a religion?)
22. All religions are equal and Christ’s death on the cross was only for those who choose to believe it really happened and meant something if it did take place. However, there are many paths to God, if one even believes in Him at all, and no way is wrong. This notion is from the folks who have redefined God according to their own value systems rather than taking Him at His word. I wouldn’t hedge any bets if I were them.
23. Speaking of Christ, mentioning the name “Jesus” is offensive as is mentioning the words “Christ” or “Christmas (notwithstanding that some guy just got his named changed to Jesus Christ and claims to be the real McCoy), but smut, pornography, and perversions of all kinds are allowed in shopping malls, movie theaters, on TV, and in magazines under the guise of freedom of expression. These are not just acceptable “expressions of freedom” they are the operating mechanisms of evil. Oops, there’s that word again!
24. American churches have decided to bend scripture to suit their own purposes—keep the pews filled and the money coming in—rather than preaching the truth.
25. All the ills of the world are the fault of: a) Christians b) Jews c) Israel d) The US e) US failure to ratify the Kyoto Treaty f) President Bush g) Just don’t say it’s the sins of humanity that are messing things up h) All of the above.
26. Separation of powers is only enforced when a conservative issue is at stake, but never enforced when the liberals need judges to rule in their favor.
27. A circuit court in Indiana finally has the intestinal fortitude to say flat out what many of us have known for years—the ACLU is not a representation of a reasonable person, and that the “wall of separation between church and state” is a tired argument that has outlived its usefulness.
28. Most Americans have no clue how to take back their nation, though 75 percent believe that Jesus is indeed the Son of God (try www.thecalltoprayer.net).
29. Islam is allegedly the completion of Christianity, but it relies on dead works for salvation. And the model for those works is a lying, thieving, murdering, cowardly pedophile. Stoke up the fires of Hell, here I come!
30. Our schools think it’s great to teach children the (quite laughable) Theory of Evolution as fact, but won’t let them learn about Intelligent Design even as theory. This makes evolution a form of religion, but as long as it’s not based on or is in direct opposition to Judeo-Christianity, the ACLU won’t object.
31. The states can now mandate perversion education for kids in government schools and order the parents to mind their own business or be arrested for objecting.
32. “Brokeback Mountain” has suddenly become good family entertainment instead of despicable and disgusting propaganda that has deceased sheepherders rolling over in their graves.
33. Experts who believe that humans are more dangerous to the earth than tsunamis may be right, especially when one looks at liberal ideologies and the sinful behaviors they spawn.
34. Katie Couric feels sorry for pedophiles; though she did say the acts they perpetrated on children were sickening. I guess Katie doesn’t see that punishing such miscreants to the full extent of whatever laws are left on the books for such criminals is more important than “understanding them.” I know what makes them tick. Lock them up and throw away the keys!
35. An amoral generation is now running the show and believes the old “it’s all about me” mantra sponsored by Dr. Spock and his peers over 50 years ago.
36. We should feel sorry for criminals who commit heinous crimes and punish the victims for raising a ruckus.
37. Michael Moore, fanatic crusader against Dick Cheney and Halliburton, is found to be a Halliburton stockholder.
Did I tell you that I hope your Christmas was Merry, your Chanukah filled with joy, and may His light shine on you in the coming year? If I didn’t . . . consider it done now. As for those who insist on “celebrating” Kwanzaa, check out the seven tenets of the artificial celebration or just find Ann Coulter’s column on worldnetdaily.com.
