Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey urges Christians to arm ourselves

Joey Garrison reports for The Tennessean, Oct. 2, 2015, that in response to reports that Oregon college shooter Chris Harper-Mercer had targeted Christians in his shooting spree, Tennesse lietenant governor and state senator Ron Ramsey (R-Blountville) yesterday urged fellow Christians to consider getting a gun. (See “Oregon shooter singled out Christians for slaughter“)

Tennesse Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey

This is what Ramsey posted on his Facebook page:

As I scroll through the news this morning I am saddened to read the details of the horrible tragedy in Oregon. My heart goes out to the citizens of Roseburg — especially the families and loved ones of those murdered.

The recent spike in mass shootings across the nation is truly troubling. Whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West.

While this is not the time for widespread panic, it is a time to prepare. I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit. I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.

Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise.

Ramsey’s comments elicited a written statement from Tennessee State Rep. John Ray Clemmons (D-Nashville), who said Ramsey’s comments “reek of fear-mongering and religious crusading.”

John Ray Clemmons

Clemmons, a pro-abort Demonrat who voted against two Tennessee laws putting restrictions on abortion, accused Ramsey of publicity-seeking and of choosing “the road most traveled by the radical right” and, in so doing, impeding “the General Assembly’s bipartisan efforts to improve public safety by removing guns from the hands of criminals.” Clemmons then pontificated that, “Things have never ended well when any leader has asked people to take up arms in the name of their religious faith.”

So according to state Rep. Clemmons, upholding the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment is “the road” of the “radical right”!

Thank you, Clemmons, for confirming what I’d always thought: America’s Founding Fathers are today’s Conservatives.


Obama threatens Christians: “Gay rights” come before your constitutional right to religious freedom

A couple of months ago one Sunday morning, I arrived early at church and found the presiding priest — an orthodox and reverent priest — graciously standing outside to greet parishioners. There was no one around, so we began chatting.

Father X spontaneously said something very interesting. He said that, after the 2016 elections, Catholic priests will be imprisoned in the United States for defending their faith.

I questioned his timing. Referring to the creature occupying the White House, I said, “He won’t wait till the 2016 elections. He still has one and a half years to wreak more destruction on this country.”

Then I quoted — a quote with which Fr. X was even more familiar than I was — what the late Archbishop of Chicago Cardinal Francis George said in 2010 about the perilous state of religious freedoms in the United States (and across the western world):

“I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.”

Cardinal George’s prophesy isn’t so far-fetched given what Obama recently proclaimed.

Barely hours after Pope Francis emphasized the importance of religious freedom in his speech to the United Nations, as Francis was en route in his flight back to Rome, Obama delivered a “F-you” by declaring a war against Christianity and against the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, declaring that homosexual “rights” come before any rights to religious freedom.

Obama at LGBT fundraiser in NY, Sept. 27, 2015.

Charlie Spiering reports for Breitbart that in a speech at a LGBT fundraiser in New York City on Sunday (Sept. 27, 2015) night, Obama praised the progress made on “gay rights” under his administration. He crowed:

“We affirm that we cherish our religious freedom and are profoundly respectful of religious traditions. But we also have to say clearly that our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.”

Obama then accused Republicans of using the religious freedom issue just to earn more votes, as they did in 2004, and boasted that “America has left the leaders of the Republican Party behind.”

He then singled out three GOP presidential contenders for ridicule:

  • Dr. Ben Carson, for suggesting that “prison turns you gay.”
  • Sen. Ted Cruz, for saying he would introduce a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.
  • Gov. Mike Huckabee, for saying that Americans should just disobey the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage. Obama mocked Huckabee, “I’m sure he loves the Constitution — except for Article III. And maybe the Equal Protection Amendment. And 14th Amendment, generally.”

Obama proudly told the audience (that included DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz and actor George Takei) that he would not back down in his efforts to make progress for the LGBT community, and called for all of them to remain vigilant to hold the line on important legal gains in the country. “What makes America special is, is that though sometimes we zig and zag, eventually hope wins out,” he said. “But it only wins out because folks like you put your shoulder behind the wheel and push it in that direction.”

Something stinks: Ted Cruz’s Super PAC donated $½ million to Carly Fiorina’s campaign

political action committee (PAC) is an organization that pools campaign contributions from members and donates those funds to campaign for or against candidates, ballot initiatives, or legislation by, for example, making and buying campaign ads. 

A super PAC, officially known as an “independent-expenditure only committee,” may not make contributions to candidate campaigns or parties, but may engage in unlimited political spending independently of the campaigns. Unlike traditional PACs, super PACs can raise funds from individuals, corporations, unions, and other groups without any legal limit on donation size.


Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has four super PACs to raise money for his presidential campaign, which raked in a total of $37.8 million as of July 31, 2015 — a significant haul that puts Cruz in the top fundraising tier. The bulk of the money comes from just seven individual donors. Cruz’s four super PACs are:

  1. Keep The Promise I: $11 million; funded almost entirely by New York hedge fund magnate Robert Mercer.
  2. Keep the Promise II: a single $10 million donation from Toby Neugebauer, a Puerto Rico-based investor who is the son of Texas GOP Rep. Randy Neugebauer.
  3. Keep the Promise III: $15 million — all from Texas billionaire brothers, Farris and Dan Wilks, who made their fortunes in fracking, and their wives, JoAnn and Staci.
  4. Keep the Promise PAC: $1.8 million, nearly all from Texas-based donors, including Robert McNair, Sr., the chairman and CEO of the Houston Texans football franchise.

Politico reports that, as of July 31, 2015, super PAC Keep the Promise I had spent the most, shelling out $536,000. But what is most curious is that $500,000 of that was spent not for Ted Cruz, but to promote his fellow Republican and supposed rival Carly Fiorina’s presidential ambitions.

SM Gibson reports for Anti-Media, Sept. 28, 2015, a super PAC associated with Fiorina, CARLY for America Super PAC, has raised almost $3.5 million to date. 

Note: The super PAC was originally named Carly for America. In June 2015, the FEC forced it to change its name because the original name was in violation of its rules, which state that super PACs cannot use a candidate’s name because they are supposed to be “independent.” So Carly for America changed its name to CARLY (an acronym for Conservative Authentic Responsive Leadership for You) for America Super PAC.

What is curious is that among the hundreds of contributions pledged to CARLY for America, one is for $500,000, made on June 18, by the Cruz-affiliated Keep The Promise I super PAC, as shown in the latter’s itemized disbursements (see below).

Ted Cruz Super PAC disimbursements

Why would anyone seeking the presidential nomination for the Republican party donate such a large sum to a competitor? 

Even stranger, the large sum was donated to Fiorina on June 18 — when she was still a relatively unknown candidate and polling at 0%, according to a Washington Post–ABC News poll. It wasn’t until August 6 — when Fiorina performed well in the first GOP lower candidate debate — that she was on anyone’s political radar nationally.

The only explanation given by Keep The Promise I for its $500,000 “disbursement” or donation to CARLY for America is “other disbursement,” which of course is not an explanation.

That has prompted the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to send a letter to Keep The Promise I treasurer Jacquelyn James, dated Sept. 16, 2015, asking for “a brief statement or description of why” the $500,000 disbursement was made.  The letter warns that “Failure to adequately respond by (October 21) could result in an audit or enforcement action.”

So when you see TV ads touting Fiorina, they really should carry this inscription:

Carly Fiorina

See also “Republican Sen. Ted Cruz announces presidential campaign, but is he eligible?” and “Is Ted Cruz an advocate of a North American Union?“.

Update (Sept. 30):

I just received this email from Ted Cruz asking for my donation:

I know I’ve asked a lot of you over the last 14 days…and I didn’t want to have to do this, but I must ask one more time for your support of $35 or whatever you can afford. We are only 329 donors short of the toughest goal we’ve ever set. This is HUGE. Right now, I’m asking you to make any donation — as little as $5 or as much as you can afford — to make sure we surpass the looming Federal Election Commission deadline before midnight tonight.

This is the response I sent back:

Since your Keep Your Promise I super PAC is so flush with money that they donated half a million dollars to Carly Fiorina’s super PAC, you really should stop crying poverty.


John Boehner to resign as House Speaker

From New York Times:

Speaker John A. Boehner, under intense pressure from conservatives in his party, will resign one of the most powerful positions in government and give up his House seat at the end of October, throwing Congress into chaos as it tries to avert a government shutdown.

Mr. Boehner made the announcement in an emotional meeting with his fellow Republicans on Friday morning.

This is long overdue.

I’d like to think Boehner’s resignation will make a difference, but so long as Mitch McConnell — whom I loath even more than Boehner — remains as Senate Majority Leader, the GOP will continue to be eunuchs, and even more Republicans than the 62% in a recent Fox News poll will feel betrayed by their party.

Trump is viciously attacked from left and right: raped, murdered, “cut off his balls”

On June 16, 2015, when Donald Trump announced he’s a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination in the 2016 presidential election, he said this about the illegals whom the Obama administration is allowing to pour across our border:

“They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.”

For correctly saying that there are drug-traffickers and rapists among illegal “immigrants,” Trump is reviled and condemned. Univision and NBC Universal have cut ties with Trump, refusing to air the “Miss Universe” pageant he partially owns; Macy’s has discontinued his clothing line.

If you thought the media pile-on attacking Trump for his comment about “illegal aliens” (a term that is now banned by California governor Jerry Brown) is extreme, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Last night (Sept. 23), in an episode titled “Where My Country Gone” (in reference to Trump’s election slogan “Make America Great Again”), Comedy Central’s adult cartoon show South Park depicted Trump as being raped and murdered:

South Park depicts Donald Trump being raped and killed

The same evening, on Fox News’ The [Meghn] Kelly FileNational Review editor Rich Lowry made a crude and vile remark about Trump, saying that in the last GOP presidential wannabes debate, Carly Fiorina expertly “cut off his [Trump’s] balls”:

“…what’s going on here is that last debate. Let’s be honest, Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon.”

Gateway Pundit points out that this is not the first time, but that Lowry “attacks Trump frequently on FOX News.” Trump is demanding an apology from Fox News:

Trump demands apology from Fox News

Given how much The Left-Right Establishment fears him, Trump has my support for that reason alone.

Is it any wonder why good people don’t go into politics?

Why Democrats, Republicans, Wall St. and the MSM are all gunning for Trump

Wayne Allyn Root hits one out of the ballpark, again.

by Wayne Allyn Root · July 7, 2015

Someone is getting very nervous. Obama. Valerie Jarrett. Eric Holder. Hillary Clinton. Jon Corzine…to name just a few. And I know why.

I wrote a book entitled, “The Murder of the Middle Class” about the unholy conspiracy between big government, big business and big media. They all benefit by the billions from this partnership and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all, and all for one.

It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich. Everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies.

But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. I’ve never seen them this outraged…this vicious…this motivated…this coordinated. NEVER in all my years in politics, have I seen anything like the way the mad dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.

When white extremist David Dukes ran for Governor of Louisiana even he wasn’t treated with this kind of outrage, vitriol and disrespect. When a known fraud, scam artist and tax cheat like Al Sharpton ran for President, I never saw anything remotely close to this. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.

Why? Because David Duke was never going to win. Al Sharpton was never going to win. Ron Paul was never going to win. Ross Perot was never going to win as a third party candidate. None of those candidates had the billion dollars it takes to win the presidency. But Donald Trump can self fund that amount tomorrow…and still have another billion left over to pour into the last two week stretch run before election day.

No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business and political elite understand that Donald Trump is no joke and could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.

It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy Donald. No this is a coordinated conspiracy led by President Barack Obama himself. Obama himself is making the phone calls and giving the orders- the ultimate intimidator who plays by the rules of Chicago thug politics.

Why is this so important to Obama? Because most of the other politicians are part of the “old boys club.” They talk big, but in the end they won’t change a thing. Why? Because they are all beholden to big money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, multi-national corporations like Big Pharma or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock stock and barrel by foreigners- like George Soros owns Obama, or foreign governments own Hillary with their Clinton Foundation donations.

These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big money. But one man- and only one man- isn’t beholden to anyone. One man doesn’t need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Autoworkers, or the Teachers Union, or the SEIU, or the Bar Association to fund his campaign.

Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help. That means he doesn’t care what the media says. He doesn’t care what the corporate elites think. That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched interests. That makes Trump a huge threat. Trump can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slavemasters.

Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t you wonder why Boehner and McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet they’ve never tried to defund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal Executive Action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It defies logic, right?

Well first, I’d guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having affairs…or secretly gay…or stealing taxpayer money…the NSA knows everything.

Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money, from his own bank account. Trust me- the NSA, SEC, IRS and all the other 3-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader. They know everything.

Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called “racists.” So they are scared to ever criticize Obama, or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment.

Fourth, why rock the boat? After defeat or retirement, if you’re a “good boy” you’ve got a $5 million dollar per year lobbying job waiting.

The big money interests have the system gamed. Win or lose…they win.

But Donald Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules. Trump breaks up this nice cozy relationship between big government, big media and big business. All the rules are out the window if Donald wins the presidency. The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides. But not Donald.

Remember Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama’s birth certificate. He questioned Obama’s college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university.

Now he’s doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do- question our relationship with Mexico …question why the border is wide open…questioning why no wall has been built across the border…questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests…questioning why so many illegal aliens commit violent crimes yet are not deported…questioning why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

Donald Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick? Good question.

I’m certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michele Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare web sites. By the way that tab is now up to $5 billion.

Trump will ask if Obamacare’s architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying. He will ask if Obama himself committed fraud when he said, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.”

Trump will investigate Obama’s widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama’s college records.

Trump will prosecute Hillary Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover-up Benghazi before the election.

How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election.

Obama, the multi-national corporations and the media need to stop this. They recognize this could get out of control. If left unchecked telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Donald could wake a sleeping giant.

Trump’s election would be a nightmare. Obama has committed many crimes. No one else but Donald would dare to prosecute. Donald Trump will not hesitate. Once Donald gets in and gets a look at “the cooked books” and Obama’s records, the game is over. The gig is up. The goose is cooked.

Eric Holder could wind up in prison. Valerie Jarrett could wind up in prison. Obama bundler Jon Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money.

Hillary Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails …or accepting bribes from foreign governments while Secretary of State …or for “misplacing” $6 billion as head of State Department …or for lying about Benghazi.

Hillary For Prison 2016

The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison. Obamacare will be defunded and dismantled. The Obama Crime Family will be prosecuted for crimes against the American people. And Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters.

Trump will investigate. Trump will prosecute. Trump will go after everyone involved…just for fun. That will all happen on Trump’s first day in the White House.

Who knows what Donald will do on day #2?

That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump. That’s why we must all support Donald. This may be our only shot at saving America, uncovering the crimes committed against our nation and prosecuting all of those involved.

38 reasons why Obama is a Muslim

Obama in burkaH/t Barry Soetoro Esq.

The media, including “fair-and-balanced” Fox News, have been pummeling Donald Trump for the things he says. Now, he’s being pummeled for things he didn’t say, specifically for not saying that Obama is Christian.

Last Thursday (Sept. 17) night at a Trump rally in New Hampshire, a man said:

“We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American — birth certificate, man … We have training camps growing, where they want to kill us. That’s my question. When can we get rid of them?”

Trump responded, “This is how we’re starting? [Audience laugh] We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We’re going to look at that and plenty of other things.”

For not defending Obama — which, of course, Trump is under no obligation to do — Trump is being trounced by the usual jackals.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz called Trump “vile” and “racist.” Hillary Clinton spit out this tweet: “Donald Trump not denouncing false statements about POTUS & hateful rhetoric about Muslims is disturbing, & just plain wrong. Cut it out.” (Source)

That same night, on Fox News’ The [Megyn] Kelly File, Kelly showed a clip from the Trump rally to her studio audience.

A blonde woman in a sleeveless black dress questioned Obama’s background and religion (2:37 mark) and said he is a Muslim. Kelly quickly interrupted her, “No, he isn’t.” The woman said, “Well, we don’t know.” To which, Kelly barked, “Yes, we do.”

Then, a black man (wearing glasses) sitting behind the woman jumped in and said that it’s up to Obama to disprove the rumors that he’s a Muslim. The man said:

“…there are large numbers of Americans who have problems with both the philosophical and religious background of [this] president. That’s not the American people’s [but] the president’s job to engage them….”

At which point, Kelly rudely interrupted the man, drowning his voice with her own, indignantly insisting that Obama “is not a Muslim” and that this “was made a campaign issue back in 2008,” which John McCain had “put to rest.”
