And WHAT were they telling us about the RFRA?
Monthly Archives: March 2015
1982 years ago* this week, Jesus took His closest disciples up the Mount of Olives for one last in-depth teaching. Where the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5-7) dealt with how to live here, the Olivet Discourse dealt with how to prepare for the Rapture, Great Tribulation and Final Judgment.
Jesus said, “All the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather His elect.
“As it was in the days of Noah and on the day when Lot left Sodom, so it will be on the day the Son of Man is revealed. Two men will be out in the field; one will be taken, and one will be left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken, and one will be left.
“On that day, remember the wife of Lot. A person who is on the housetop and whose belongings are in the house must not go down to get them, and likewise a person in the field must not return to what was left behind.
“Stay awake, for you do not know on which day your Lord will come.”
(Compiled from Matt 24:30-31, 37, 40-42, Luke 17:29-33)
N.b., We can be certain that the gathering of Jesus’ elect is a distinct event from the gathering of all souls for Final Judgment (see Matt 25: 31ff). Here, Jesus says He will come upon the clouds, send out His angels, and invite only some to escape the coming disasters like Noah and Lot. At Final Judgment, He says He will be on His throne with His angels gathered about Him and that all the living and the dead will be required to attend.
I think the Rapture could be very soon. This week is the Medjugorje anniversary** of the Crucifixion and Resurrection; the branches of the fig become tender and grow leaves in April (Matt 24:32). Please, BEG God to put you on the list of His elect, so when He comes in the clouds and sends his angels, you’ll be offered the chance to escape like Noah and Lot did. You really don’t want to be here for what’s coming.
There’s No Deterring an Apocalyptic Nuclear Iran by Thomas Sowell – March 31, 2015
“Clearing the way for Iran to get nuclear bombs may — probably will — be the most catastrophic decision in human history.”
*The Hebrew and Roman calendars for this week exactly match those of the original events.
**Explanation for what I mean by “Medjugorje Anniversary”
Catholic Vote had this to say about the Leftist uproar over Indiana’s religious freedom law:
“What irks LGBT activists so much about this new Indiana law is that it strips them of the right to impose their agenda on religious individuals.”
IMHO, the activist gay Left is playing right into Anti-Christ’s hands attacking our freedom of religion. It will just make it that much easier for the Muslim Mahdi to force Islam on everyone … and you know what that will mean for the LGBTs!
Gays Persecuted and KILLED Under ISIS [5:21]
When Gov. Pence signed Indiana’s Religious Freedom Recovery Act it was stunning how rapidly the leftists and their pack of media hounds sprang to the attack. What was all the fuss, since there is a federal law, signed by the Bent Penis himself, and more than 20 states who already have similar laws.
I have two thoughts. One, the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie was at last shown to be complete and utter bullshit, so they needed another lie to take the focus off Obama handing a terrorist nation a nuclear device and the future president blatantly flaunting her criminal acts in view of the world, daring anybody to stop her.
The other reason, I think, is that none of the other states has what may be a potential presidential candidate in 2016 and this is their way to bloody him preemptively. They’ve been trying with Scott Walker but haven’t had much luck. I have been whining as long as I’ve been here about our side playing by the rules while the other side lies ,cheats, stops at nothing to win. Apparently the Blitz worked, since Pence said they’ll rewrite the law so as not to offend the gay mafia. Pity. Wish he’d have stuck to his principles.
Pence Buckles Under Powerful Gay/Media Blitzkrieg
Governor Mike Pence of Indiana seems to have caved into enormous pressure and will ask the state legislature for new legislation to make it clear that Christian florists and bakers could be forced to participate in weddings that violate their religious beliefs.
Last week, Indiana joined 19 other states and the federal government by enacting a law to protect religious believers from governmental encroachment on religious freedom. Such legislation was cited in the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision that determined religious employers could not be forced to supply abortion drugs to employees under ObamaCare.
Mike Pence: ‘Was I expecting this kind of backlash? Heavens no.’
Then you haven’t been paying attention.
He’d waffled in recent days over whether or not he would support a legislative fix to the law before finally announcing that he wanted one — but he didn’t say what that fix would be.
Potentially complicating his effort to quell the criticism, Pence said he opposes adding sexual orientation to the list of Indiana’s protected categories under state anti-discrimination law.
Democrats who’d seen their proposals to do just that rejected by the legislature in recent months said only a solution along those lines would suffice.
Pence: Bill Clinton, Obama Also Supported Religious Freedom Bills
Too bad the rules don’t apply to them.
Ironically, Hillary Clinton and President Obama’s aides to President Obama are also standing in line to slam Pence and Indiana; Hillary Clinton tweeted, “Sad this new Indiana law can happen in America today. We shouldn’t discriminate against ppl bc of who they love.”
Yet the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), passed in 1993, was brought by Representative Chuck Schumer, now a New York senator; Bill Clinton signed it into law. In 1998, Obama voted aye on a law similar to Indiana’s.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said on ABC’s This Week. “Look, if you have to go back two decades to try to justify something you are doing today, it may raise some questions about the wisdom of what you’re doing,” Obama has had no comment.

Indiana Becomes Apoplectic Moonbat Magnet – Governor Mike Pence Fights Back…
To arms ! Quick everyone grab a bag of Chick-fil-a sandwiches and start chucking them with random disregard (they work like hand grenades against the rainbow Moonbats). …And into the valley in the shadow of Hobby Lobby rode the doomed Christians….
LETS ALL GO TO INDIANA AND FIND SOME CHRISTIANS AND FORCE THEM TO GO AGAINST THEIR BELIEFS JUST BECAUSE WE CAN!
Mayor Of Seattle Prohibits City Employees From Traveling To Indiana Over Religious Rights Law
The mayor of Seattle today prohibited municipal employees from traveling to Indiana on city funds, as the backlash spread against the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s decision comes in response to the law signed Thursday by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence that allows businesses to refuse service to gays and lesbians for religious reasons.
Conn Dem Gov. Dan Malloy Attacks Mike Pence: “When You See A Bigot, You Have To Call Him On It”…
Governor Malloy just called himself a “bigot” as well since Connecticut also has a religious freedom law on its books.
HEY!KICK THOSE CHRISTIANS AGAIN!
The reason these critics crawl with ease through legislators’ thought processes is easy enough. In recent months, same-sex couples intending marriage have sued florists and bakers who declined their business on grounds that Christian teaching has historically held male-female marriage to be the estate congruent with God’s will.
These set-tos, and others doubtless to come, are one predictable consequence of the spreading conviction that same-sex marriage is about to triumph legally — hence holdouts against it must be Bad People deserving of restraint, punishment or both.
OF COURSE,THE MOUTH THAT ROARED HAS AN OPINION, ALBEIT ONE WE’VE HEARD AD NAUSEUM

I CAN’T DO ITALICS OR BOLD TYPE OR PUT SCRIPT IN DIFFERENT COLORS. THIS IS THE BEST I CAN DO. SORRY.
Project Veritas just released an undercover video showing Barry University (Florida) officials sanctioning a pro-ISIS club with the stated goal of sending material support to ISIS. The officials also helpfully suggested the club not include “ISIS” in the name, “because technically our country is at war with ISIS.”

“Hillary Clinton lacks a track record of accomplishment. She is not candid, which suggests her character is flawed. And I think now in e-mail gate, we not only have a situation where she is clearly not being candid. I mean, her saying all those e-mails she erased were just her and Bill chatting is a little bit like Richard Nixon saying those erased moments on the tape were he and Pat talking.” –Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina on “Fox News Sunday”
Yesterday, I saw a snarky remark on Facebook that the Zeifman-fired-Hillary story was “typical Tea Party b.s.” The commenter cited Snopes. When I did my own search, I found the article (linked below) in which Zeifman himself says he fired Hillary for cause. I also found the Snopes article which
- did NOT CITE the Zeifman article (which is not difficult to find) and
- cited but did NOT LINK to source in which Zeifman allegedly said he did NOT fire Hillary.
I think this Snopes article puts a big, red flag on the rumors floating around that Snopes is in the tank for the Obamacrats and possibly funded by George Soros.

It just never ends. The right may win some small battles but the left wins the big ones. They set the agenda because they are the aggressors. It would be interesting to see if once… just ONCE… the media treated democrats the way they do republicans. Of course, it will never happen.
Lurch Kerry is representing Iran’s interest in Lucerne, Switzerland in accordance to his master’s orders. The master had a fine weekend in sunny Florida, exiling the press to an equipment shed. The Mooch was dancing like a ghetto queen at some BET award show. The talking heads all attacked Mike Pence for signing the same legislation Obumbles voted for during his brief visit to the state senate. There are over 20 states with similar legislation already on the books. The big difference the Dems are trying to stop Pence’s plans to run for president. It doesn’t take long for them to identify threats to their rule and set the media dogs loose.
Some nitwit group called ‘the 98%’ posted a picture on facebook of blacks at a segregated lunch counter from the 1950’s, claiming that’s what Indiana’s new law was intending to do. With them it’s always about race. It’s just sickening. OK, spleen vented, rant over.
TORNADO RIPS THROUGH OKLAHOMA….GOD LEAVES A MESSAGE
During the Bush years, the mere mention of Halliburton evoked a rabid response from liberals who claimed the company dragged the U.S. into the Iraq War for profit. (Vice President Cheney was a former chairman of Halliburton.)
March 29, 2015: President Barack Obama teed off today at the private Floridian National Golf Club with a member of the board of directors of Halliburton.
A Google search of “Obama Halliburton golf” within the past twenty-four hours showed no returns from liberal sites.
Cornell University has yet another reason to blush with shame. Among the know-nothings railing over Indiana’s RFRA is alumnus Keith Olbermann who called it “legally codified hatred and stupidity.”
Uh, no. It is merely the 20th state version of a long-standing federal statute.
“The free exercise of religion has been called the first freedom, that which originally sparked the development of the full range of the Bill of Rights. Our Founders cared a lot about religion. And one of the reasons they worked so hard to get the first amendment into the Bill of Rights at the head of the class is that they well understood what could happen to this country, how both religion and Government could be perverted if there were not some space created and some protection provided. They knew that religion helps to give our people the character without which a democracy cannot survive. They knew that there needed to be a space of freedom between Government and people of faith that otherwise Government might usurp.”
– President Bill Clinton, 1993
Following the announcement that the Army will be prosecuting Bergdahl for going AWOL, tweeters asked Brazile if she was going to apologize now. Her ONLY response:
“Go find your joy.”
Huh? I’ll tell you what would give me joy, Donna. Having you and all your racist buddies stop demanding that Barack Obama be judged solely by the color of his skin.
Here are a few other choice remarks various tweeters had for and about Donna:
- Have you ever admitted you were wrong about anything?
- If they admitted failures, they would have scant time for snarking.
- Hope ACA covers chiropractic. Carrying Obama’s water has to be rough on the back.
Meanwhile, BizarrØland’s State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, told Megyn Kelly they were totes standing behind the exchange because … wait for it …
“We have a commitment to our men and women serving in our military, defending our national security every day, that we’re going to do everything to bring them home if we can and that’s what we did in this case.”
Unless, they’re locked up in a Mexican prison for no good reason, in which case, Barack’s got no pen or phone.
