While making his 50 state Decision America Tour Franklin Graham spoke about the need for God back in the American political process. He found fault with both political parties and called upon Christians to pray for their nation and to repent of their and the nation’s sins.

I agree with Mr. Graham that America has tossed God out with their progressive humanist secularism, but I can not lay the fault at the feet of the politicians the voting public chose. The focus of my concern is with the dereliction of duty of the Christian church, and the Christian home.

Persecuted Christians left their homelands and traveled across a dangerous sea to find a place where they could worship God freely and without government persecution. The pilgrims set up a colony in Massachusetts that had a lasting effect on the new nation being born. In fact, the Mayflower Compact was instrumental in the Constitution.

These brave men and women were not bashful about their devotion and service to God. They made sure that honor was given to God in their community. Parents taught their children the scriptures and made sure that they understood the importance of worshipping God in their lives and in their community.

Generations passed and parents stopped teaching their children the importance of faith in God and his place in society and instead shipped them off to government-run institutions where our children learned secular humanism and that God did not belong in the public square.

In the churches throughout the land, a place that once held significance in the local community, and was instrumental in public discourse on all things of societal life, pulpits were being filled with teachers who taught that a Christian’s citizenship was not of this world so they were not to bother themselves with the dirt and grime of politics and civics in general. Evangelicals were told to stay out of politics since it was worldly and corrupt. This left a void which was gladly filled by those who did not hold to Christian values and as such led our government down into the depths of humanism and away from God. The church said and did nothing for decades.

Now we find ourselves where we are today, adrift on the sea of worldliness driven by the winds of tyranny and debauchery. What do we find church leaders and evangelicals doing while the ship of state flounders in turbulent waters? They are supporting a secularist for the highest office in the land.

America needs a revival of spiritual fervor, a new Pentecost which will cause the body of Christ to burn with the spiritual passion once held by the pilgrims. A righteous indignation that will cause the people of God to fall on their faces and cry out to a merciful God to forgive them for their indifference and failures to pray for their leaders. America you have sinned, we have sinned against God and brought this hell down upon ourselves, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Do we really want America back? Back to the foundations laid by the Pilgrims? Do we really wish to see one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all? Then we MUST put God back where he belongs front and center in our lives and in our communities, and yes in our government. We as a nation need to vote for God in this election and those that are to follow.

And that is the way I see it. What say you?

TurboTax Temporarily Halts E-Filing In All States Amid Fraud Concerns

Up to 18 states are reporting significant upticks in fraudulent activity and there may be a common thread: tax preparation software.y


As of yesterday, Thursday, February 5, Intuit is temporarily pausing transmission of state e-filing tax returns. This is effective for all states. Intuit will be working with the states today to begin turning transmissions back on.

In the meantime, to assist any customers who believe they are victims of tax fraud, Intuit has a dedicated toll-free number, 1.800.944.8596, with direct access to specially trained identity protection agents who will provide comprehensive support and filing assistance. You might note that’s the same number that Minnesota has provided to taxpayers. It is not a state-specific number. It is available to all potentially affected taxpayers.

In addition, Intuit will provide identity protection services and free credit monitoring, as well as provide access to all versions of its software or to the assistance of one of Intuit’s credentialed tax experts who will prepare taxes for affected customers at no expense.

It’s important to note that as of now, this issue is only being reported by taxpayers using TurboTax.

So far, there has been no indication that federal returns have been affected.

The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading. Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%.

The unemployment numbers are misleading because they fail to indicate the number of people who have given up looking for work but are UNEMPLOYED. The number also includes part-time workers who are counted as EMPLOYED by the government figures but are not working at a full-time job. In fact full-time jobs are at an all time low with only 44% of the population holding full-time jobs (30+ hours a week). If you work one hour a week and get paid a measely $20 you are counted as employed by the government numbers.

Since Obama assumed the office of President the JUnited States has lost 13million full-time jobs and to date has only gained back 3 million. We have another 10 million jobs to go just to break even. There is nothing good about the jobs report other than to say it is trending upward ever so slowly.


By the Numbers: Obama’s Economic, Jobs and Deficit Performance Worst on Record

Given what we know now, only Barack Obama could attempt to characterize his economic record as one of achievement rather than historic failure. Only Obama could attempt to characterize his record on deficits, which dwarf those of any other president that preceded him, as a successful one.

And only Obama could characterize today’s record federal spending and incoming tax receipts as “senseless austerity.”


How Public School Administrators Endanger Special-Needs Kids
When faced with the choice between protecting children or protecting the public school system, the system’s lawyers chose to protect the system.

If a parent in Virginia repeatedly locked a 7-year-old child in a closet, child-protective social service agencies would come down on him like a ton of bricks. But if a school administrator does the same thing, he has a green light to keep it up. Hypothetical? Not at all.

See on Scoop.itEagle Views

First lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday chided congressional Republicans for attempting to roll back her school lunch standards, calling the effort “unacceptable” and accusing lawmakers of playing politics with the health of young students.

EagleWings‘s insight:

If you like your lunch program you can not keep it but do not try to take away Michele’s school lunch program. Your child’s lunch can be tossed into the nearest waste bin but you better not lay a hand on Michele’s bag lunch program. If you happen to like your school lunch, and you want to keep it, you can not since Michele knows what is best for all students everywhere. Michele has become the SCHOOL LUNCH MONITOR and she is going to be checking out every child’s lunch to see if it meets her standards.

 

Now her kids on the other hand are treated to chef prepared meals every day at the Sidwell Friends school her daughters attend. No one is going to be allowed to touch her kids meals, but yours is up for grabs.

 

You see folks if you like something and the government thinks that you should not have it, they will make sure you can not have it and if you try to take it back you are told to keep your hands off.

 

There is not a government program that is EVER cancelled but you can be sure that if you like your health insurance, or your child likes his or her lunch, that will be cancelled. None of the elites will have any of their stuff cancelled or confiscated, since they are a privileged class. Only the commoner among us most be told what they can or  can not have, or what their child can or can not eat. The elite will do anything they darn well please and don’t you dare try to tell them no.

 

So shut up and eat whatever it is the government shovels out for you. And if it does not taste very good consider the source, the party in power’s mascot is after all a jackass.

 

Now that is the way I see it what say you?

Did you hear what Obama said? Do you really care what Obama says?

Speaking from the White House Tuesday afternoon while flanked by people who have “benefited” from Obamacare, President Obama said his signature piece of legislation is working. The speech was part of a new public relations campaign to try to salvage what’s left of the disastrous Obamacare rollout.
“About a half million people are poised to gain health care coverage…and that number…will keep on growing,” Obama said while ignoring the more than five million people who have lost their health insurance thanks to Obamacare. “This law is working and will work into the future.”

Yes indeed the Obamacare law is working its magic like it was designed to do. The law was never intended to actually HELP anyone but government potentates gain more power and control over our lives.

Here is how the Obamacare law is working. It is DRIVING UP HEALTH CARE COSTS, causing grumblings from the American people, which is precisely what Obama intended. He wants the people upset and crying for a FIX to this mess and then he will come riding in on his TROJAN horse and bring with him Government run healthcare.

You see this law was never intended to actually lower costs and make dealings with your insurance companies better or the relationship between you and your healthcare provider more secure, its sole purpose was to dislodge you from your secure, privately held and managed healthcare programs into one that is completely controlled by the central government. So for its intended purpose the LAW IS WORKING and will continue to work its havoc until such time as the government gets what it wants. THE ABILITY to decide who lives and who dies, as a matter of law and a way to cut costs.

The government aim is to make the healthcare system more efficient. HOW YOU ASK? Simple if no one actually gets any health care the system is very efficient since everyone will die before actually getting care, thus there is nothing to pay out and the government gets to keep all that money they have stolen from you with the promise of HEALTHCARE.

 
Yes my friends I am afraid OBAMACARE is working. It’s just not working for you and I and my friends Obama doesn’t care. There is NO CARE in Obamacare and that’s the truth.
