Resting is the order of the weekend

While I was out of town over the Thanksgiving holiday I started having more GI troubles. Then a couple days ago I started having more pain in my abdomen, pelvic region, and in my back so I saw my doctor today. He said that I have an infection so he put me on antibiotics. Before he left the room he ordered me to rest over the weekend. Since I feel like crap I will follow his order. Here are some links to some excellent posts by some great patriot bloggers.

Dan Savage: Bully-in-Chief and Anti-Christian Bigot

From LifeSiteNews:

A leading pro-family group has released a telling exposé charging that Dan Savage, the founder of the massively popular ‘It Gets Better’ homosexual anti-bullying campaign, is himself the country’s “bully-in-chief.”

Savage writes the syndicated sex column Savage Love, where, in his own words, he “traffics the skeeziest sex practices known to man.” He is famous for his campaign defaming Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rick Santorum by using a technique known as “Google-bombing” to associate his name on the search engine with a grotesque aspect of sodomy.

In the ‘It Gets Better’ campaign, Savage encouraged people to produce their own short video message to homosexual teens, and won support from celebrities and politicians, including President Obama. By endorsing the campaign, said Savage, Obama was telling “queer kids” that “there’s something wrong with your parents, there’s something wrong with your preachers, … and f—- those people.”

The short video, by the Family Research Council, compiles examples of Savage’s vicious and obscene attacks on Christians and conservatives, including teens.

The Murder of Blessed Miguel Pro, S.J. : Explaining Purpose of Displaying Graphic Photos

From LifeSiteNews:
November 22, 2012 ( - Whenever we go out on the streets for a “Face the Truth” Tour, we can always count on someone happening by our display to tell us that by showing graphic abortion pictures in the public square, we’re doing more harm than good. This is a charge we’ve heard often enough that we address it as one of the most Common Objections we hear.
In our response to this oft-raised argument, we plainly make the observation that throughout modern history, any number of successful social reform movements — from the movement to enact child labor laws to the civil rights movement — have used disturbing images that depict victims of maltreatment and violence, and that public support for the reforms these movements sought could not have been garnered without publicly showing graphic images of the victims.
Putting a Human Face on the Victims
The intent behind displaying graphic abortion pictures is the same, of course, for it puts a human face on the victims of what is, for far too many people, merely a theoretical concept or political issue.

Fr. Miguel Pro in the final moments before his execution.
Lewis Hine believed it was necessary to show victims of cruelty of the child labor industry, and Mamie Till believed it was necessary to have an open-casket funeral for her son Emmett after he was brutally murdered by violent racists.
We display graphic pictures of aborted babies for the same reason: because they work. That is, in the eyes of the viewer, the images elicit sympathy for the victims of injustice.
In the case of reform movements that have employed the use of graphic pictures in working to effect social change, it perhaps goes without saying that one commonality these movements share is that it is members of the movements themselves that are the ones who initially seek to disseminate them.
However, a movement closely associated with one of the martyrs whose feast day the Catholic Church will celebrate this Friday provides an exception to this rule.
Graphic Pictures of Blessed Miguel Pro, S.J.
During the 1920s, Mexico was ruled by the virulently anti-Catholic President Plutarco Calles, who began what Graham Greene called “the fiercest persecution of religion anywhere since the reign of Elizabeth.” Chief among the many Catholic groups who vigorously opposed Calles were the Cristero rebels, whose story is depicted in the film For Greater GloryContinued

Mini Eagle Freedom Links Rule 5 Edition

This is a continuation of my Eagle Freedom Links post on Thursday. I hope to post one more set of links before Thanksgiving. We still seem to be getting the run around on what happened in Benghazi. I doubt we will ever know the truth about what really went down before, during, and after the attack. Do you think that congress is going to address our fiscal woes or just kick the can down the road?

Mini Eagle Freedom Links: Contemporary Christian Edition

For a long while I've been wanting to post one of my eagle freedom links posts but between my recovering from the hysterectomy and dealing with some emotional related issues I just haven't had the energy to post a big, long list.  I am still having moderately severe pain and my doctor switched me to a medicine that makes me pretty drowsy. Plus, I have been spending some of my time looking for a job. If I was just able to weed or pick up the trash on the apartment grounds and do other small stuff that would have been okay but I cannot be wearing a 20-25lb. blower backpack on my back all day long so there was no way that I could have returned to my old job. Here are some links from some great conservative/libertarian bloggers. I will be posting more links soon.

Leftists Say Talking About Urban Areas is Insensitive

Liberals are so racially preoccupied that it is a complete joke when they make claims about racism and call us insensitive. They're the ones who focus on race and exploit it for political gain. They're the ones who want blacks as well as other minorities to be a treated special like they should be a protected class or something set apart from the rest of us. Conservatives treat everyone the same, with respect, regardless of skin color. We don't play identity politics. Paul Ryan gave Obama and his campaign credit for his turnout operation. Then Paul Ryan stated: 

“We knew this was a close race. We thought we had a very good chance of winning it. I think the surprise was some of the turnout, some of the turnout especially in urban areas, which definitely gave President Obama the big margin to win this race,” he told WISC-TV reporter Jessica Arp. “There’s always an electoral college strategy in winning these things…when we watched Virginia and Ohio coming in, and coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were gonna lose them, that’s when it became pretty clear to us we weren’t going to win.”

The Lame Stream Media and other Leftists think that urban=minorities.  What racially divisive stereotypical thinking! Liberals are the ones who have divided our culture into whites living in one area blacks/minorities in another - segregation by design -  and have pinned the races against one another -whites versus blacks - , or try to have you believe that whites are against blacks.  That is a bunch of horse hockey.  The race hustling by the Left needs to stop. Progressive politicians need to stop taking advantage of minorities and using them for political gain. 

From Hot Air: 
James Hohmann of Politico was first to cry foul, followed by Jonathan Martin of Politico. Wisconsin media was more charitable in its read of Ryan.

He later tweeted the link to the story with the quote.
By noonish it was a NYT piece: “Ryan Surprised by voters in ‘urban areas’”
The remarks prompted scorn from some liberals who viewed Mr. Ryan as blaming inner-city minorities for the Republican defeat.
“Paul Ryan emerged from dustbin of nothingness 2 blame his & Romney’s defeat on “urban” vote,” one person tweeted. “These 2 losers continue 2 demean minorities.”
Another tweeted that “Urban vote” = minorities. Paul Ryan is saying he lost because minorities actually went out and voted. SHOCKER. MINORITIES HAVE RIGHTS, TOO.”
Several people pointed out that Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan also lost some largely rural states with few minorities, like New Hampshire and Iowa. Those
losses cannot be explained away by focusing on urban voters, they noted.

Libs are unbelievable.

Please Pray for St. Mariana To Intercede for Bunni

St. Mariana 

Patron of Ecuador; Americas; bodily ills; loss of parents; people rejected by religious orders; sick people; sickness

Mariana was born at Quito, Ecuador (then part of Peru), of noble Spanish parents. She was orphaned as a child and raised by her elder sister and her husband. Mariana early was attracted to things religious and became a solitary in her sister's home under the direction of Mariana's Jesuit confessor. Mariana practiced the greatest austerities, ate hardly anything, slept for only three hours a night for years, had the gift of prophesy, and reputedly performed miracles. When an earthquake followed by an epidemic shook Quito in 1645, she offered herself publicly as a victim for the sins of the people. When the epidemic began to abate, she was stricken and died on May 26th. She is known as Mariana of Quito and is often called "the lily of Quito." She was canonized in 1950. Her feast day is May 26th.
from Wikipedia
Saint Maryann of Jesus de Paredes, O.F.S., (Mariana de Jesús de Paredes y Flores; October 31, 1618 - May 26, 1645) is a Roman Catholic saint and is the first person to becanonized from Ecuador. She was a hermit who is said to have sacrificed herself for the salvation of Quito. She wasbeatified by Pope Pius IX in 1853 and canonized by Pope Pius XII in 1950. She is the patron saint of Ecuador and veneratedat the La Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús in Quito. Her feast day is May 26.


Mariana de Paredes was born in the city of Quito, in theViceroyalty of New Granada (modern-day Ecuador), on October 31, 1618, and died there on May 26, 1645. Born ofaristocratic parents on both sides of her family, her father was Don Girolamo Flores Zenel de Paredes, a nobleman of Toledo, Spain, and her mother was Doña Mariana Cranobles de Xaramilo, a descendant of one of the best Spanish families. Mariana was the youngest of eight children, and it is claimed her birth was accompanied by most unusual phenomena in the heavens, clearly connected with the child and juridically attested at the time of the process of her beatification. Orphaned at a very young age, she was raised by her older sister and her husband.
Church testimony states that, almost from infancy, she gave signs of an extraordinary attraction to prayer and mortification, of love of God and devotion to the Blessed Virgin; and was, on a number of occasions, miraculously preserved from death. At the age of ten, she made private vows of poverty,chastity, and obedience. She desired to convey the light of faith to less fortunate people, and to later enter a monastery as a Dominican nun. But when neither of these pious desires came to pass, she made for herself a hermitage in the home of her sister where, apart from all worldly cares and closely united to God, she gave herself up to the practice of unheard of corporal austerities. It is reported that the fastwhich she kept was so strict that she took scarcely an ounce of dry bread every eight or ten days. The food which miraculously sustained her life, as in the case of Saint Catherine of Siena and Saint Rose of Lima, was, according to the sworn testimony of many witnesses, the Eucharistic Bread alone which she received every morning in Holy Communion. At some point early in her life, Mariana entered the Third Order of St. Francis, and took the religious name of Marianna of Jesus at that time.
Mariana possessed an ecstatic gift of prayer, and is said to have been able to predict the future, see distant events as if they were passing before her, read the secrets of hearts, cure diseases by a mere sign of the Cross or by sprinkling the sufferer with holy water, and at least once restored a dead person to life. During the 1645 earthquakes and subsequent epidemics in Quito, she publicly offered herself as a victim for the city and died shortly thereafter. It is also reported that, on the day she died, her sanctity was revealed in a wonderful manner: immediately after her death, a pure white lily sprang up from her blood, blossomed and bloomed, a prodigy which has given her the title of "The Lily of Quito". The Republic of Ecuador has declared her a national heroine.
Monsignor Alfonso della Pegna initiated the first preliminary steps towards her beatification, and instituted the process of inquiring into and collecting evidence for the sanctity of her life, her virtues and her miracles; but the authenticated copy of the examination of the witnesses was not forwarded toRome until 1754. The Sacred Congregation of Rites, having discussed and approved of this process, decided in favor of the formal introduction of the cause, and Pope Benedict XIV signed the commission for introducing the cause on December 17, 1757. The Apostolic process concerning the virtues of theVenerable Mariana de Paredes was drawn up and examined in due form by the two Preparatory Congregations and by the General Congregation of Rites, and orders were given by Pope Pius VI for the publication of the decree attesting the heroic character of her virtues. The process concerning the two miracles wrought through the intercession of this servant of God was subsequently prepared and, at the request of the Very Reverend Jan Roothaan, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, was examined and accepted by the three congregations, and formally approved on January 11, 1817, by Pope Pius IX.
The General Congregation having decided in favor of proceeding to the beatification, Blessed Pius IXcommanded the Brief of Beatification to be prepared. The Very Reverend Peter Jan Beckx, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, petitioned Cardinal Costantino Patrizi Naro to order the publication of the Brief, and his request was granted. The Brief was read and the solemn beatification took place in theBasilica of St Peter, Rome on November 10, 1853. Many miracles have been claimed to have been the reward of those who have invoked her intercession, especially in America, of which she seems pleased to show herself the especial patroness.

Prayers for Bunni

Today the conservative blogosphere found out that Bunni one of our dear bloggers is suffering. She is extremely ill. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with you, Bunni. May God's healing touch come upon you. I send you *hugs* *hugs* and ♥ ♥ ♥.  I am here for you if need to talk.

Merciful God, we remember before you all who are sick this day. Give them courage
to live with their disease. Help them to face and overcome their fears. Be with
them when they are alone or rejected. Comfort them when they are discouraged. And
touch them with your healing Spirit that they may find and possess eternal life,
now and forever. Amen.

God of power and mercy, you have made death itself the gateway to eternal life. Look with love on our dying sister, and make Bunni one with your Son in his suffering and death, that, sealed with the blood of Christ, she may come before you free from sin. Amen

Prayer for Healing

Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me. I thank you for sending your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, to the world to save and to set me free.  I trust in your power and grace that sustain and restore me.  Loving Father, touch me now with your healing hands, for I believe that your will is for me to be well in mind, body, soul and spirit.

Cover me with the most precious blood of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.  Cast out anything that should not be in me.  Root out any unhealthy and abnormal cells.  Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild and replenish any damaged areas.  

Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection by the power of Jesus' precious blood. Let the fire of your healing love pass through my entire body to heal and make new any diseased areas so that my body will function the way you created it to function. Touch also my mind and my emotion, even the deepest recesses of my heart.  Heal the hurts and pains and all the wounds that I have in my life. Saturate my entire being with your presence, love, joy, and peace and draw me ever closer to you every moment of my life.

And Father, fill me with your Holy Spirit and empower me to do your works so that my life will bring glory and honor to your holy name.

Mark Levin defends conservative principles, castigates consultant class and GOP establishment

H/T Daily Caller

Should we compromise on raising taxes? If it mean avoiding going over the fiscal cliff? Or, do you agree with Mark Levin? No compromise and stand firm on principle?  Elections have consequences so maybe we should compromise, at least to a certain extent? Raise taxes to 37 percent on anyone making a million dollars or more but lower the corporate tax rate by 5 percent and close certain loopholes? What do you think? This is not ideal but we need to work within the confines of reality, that we have a Democrat in the White House and a Democrat controlled senate.

Obama Re-election Has Real Life Consequences: Massive Layoffs

One Vegas employer has fired 22 people after the voters chose to re-elect Barack Obama.  Elections do have consequences.  President Obama's trickle down government spendaholic policies, trickle down government excessive taxation of citizens, has consequences.  Obamacare, the biggest set of taxes in our nation's history, has spurred the survival of the fittest attitude among business owners.  They need to layoff some employees to be able to profit, survive, and compete in our economy.  Before the election this Vegas employer even warned his staff of these consequences, if Obama was re-elected.

From Breitbart:

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election. “David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.” 

“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees. 

“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner. 

“Well unfortunately, and most of my employees are Hispanic — I’m not gonna go into what kind of company I have, but I have mostly Hispanic employees — well unfortunately we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

Another employer named Robert Murray, the chief executive of Ohio-based coal provider Murray Energy Corp., has made good on his promise to layoff employees if President Obama was re-elected.  He fired more than 350 employees. Before the layoffs he employed about 3,500 employees. 

From NBC: 

In the prayer, Murray wrote, in part:
“The American people have made their choice. They have decided that America must change its course, away from the principals of our Founders. And, away from the idea of individual freedom and individual responsibility. Away from capitalism, economic responsibility, and personal acceptance.”
He concluded by asking God for forgiveness for the layoff decisions.
“Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corporation for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build. We ask for your guidance in this drastic time with the drastic decisions that will be made to have any hope of our survival as an American business enterprise.”

From -- Scores of companies announce layoffs and closings after Obama re-election: 
List of layoffs and closings courtesy of the website The Blaze:
• US Cellular -
• Rocketdyne -
• Brake Parts -
• Husqvarna -
Various Offices which will be closing as a result of re-election:

Matt at the Conservative Hideout has provided a link to The Daily Job Cuts page.

Everyone who voted for Obama made this happen. They voted for more unemployment. I hope those who have been laid off or fired give Obama voters a big "thank you".  Elections have consequences.
