Black Civil Rights Leaders, Pastors Call for Impeachment of Holder

Recently Eric Holder had the audacity to tell states that they didn't have to enforce any laws which oppose same-sex "marriage".  I have news for Holder. This is not a freaking dictatorship!!!! I'm sure he would love for our country to be under a dictatorship. America is the land of freedom. America is by and for the people. So Holder and whomever else likes Kings, dictators, or Communism, can get the heck out of the U.S. and live in some other country that has a dictator or king as the leader if they want total control over people and don't support freedom for all citizens. The United States is a constitutional republic made up of laws. State and federal government are obligated to enforce the laws of the land. There is a process by which bills become laws.  The leaders described several instances of Holder trying to impose same sex "marriage" on the U.S. all the while ignoring federal law and state constitutions. The lawlessness of this administration cannot be condoned. Eric Holder needs to be held accountable for his actions.

A coalition of black civil rights leaders and pastors said:

“The Attorney General of the United States should be impeached over his repeated lawlessness in attempting to impose same-sex marriage throughout the nation,” said Reverend Bill Owens, CAAP Founder and President. “It’s one thing to make a political argument that gay marriage should be the law, but it’s quite another to take actions that ignore federal law, Supreme Court rulings, and the constitutions of dozens of states that have specifically rejected the redefinition of marriage which the administration is trying to impose.” 
“As much as President Obama and Attorney General Holder would like it to be otherwise, we live in a democracy—with government of, by, and for the people—not a monarchy ruled by a king issuing decrees from on high,” Reverend Owens continued. “The citizens of several states who have voted overwhelmingly to preserve marriage have had their votes voided and thrown out by radical federal judges; and the Obama administration—in particular the Justice Department—has been shamefully complicit in this attack on the rights of those voters.”

 Yes indeed. Holder should be impeached.

The State is Out of Control!!

The State is out of control!! We have the Department of Health and Human Services using coercion to force businesses, universities, and religious communities to provide services - contraception, abortion inducing drugs, and sterilization - that they  ( Yes progressives universities, businesses, and religious communities are run by people, consist of people, who hold beliefs) believe are intrinsically evil. The State is trying to force them to contribute money to health insurance which would cover these "medical procedures" (killing a person is not medicine) which violates their beliefs, goes against their conscience and clearly violates their first amendment rights. I fully agree with Archbishop Chaput's words when he says, "the more that government mandates evil actions the more likely civil disobedience becomes."  Wake up people! Rise up people! Let us stand up against our coercive government. What the hell is with the white queen (The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe) a.k.a. Sebelius and the Obama government going after nuns?  That's wrong on so many levels. President Obama talked about religious freedom at the prayer breakfast while at the same time his administration is working hard to violate thousands of citizens religious freedom. The disconnect is staggering and mind boggling.

Now we have a case of a 15-year-old girl having been taken away from her parents because the parents disagreed with one hospital's diagnosis which differed from another hospital's diagnosis. Justina Pelletier was receiving treatment for mitochondrial disease at Tufts Medical Center.  After being diagnosed and treated at Tufts, Boston Children's Hospital diagnosed Justina with somatoform disorder. Justina's parents lost custody of her a year ago. There is absolutely no justification for her parents losing custody.  Since Justina isn't receiving treatment for mitochondrial disease her health has been deteriorating rapidly.  Her parents are fighting to regain custody of their daughter. Time is of the essence due to the teen's health. The State Aaaaahhhh!!!!  WTH?!? The State is out of control!!  This is unconscionable!! It is extremely sad that our liberties have eroded so much and the state of our nation has deteriorated so badly.  This family's plight is heart wrenching. This deeply saddens me, gets me fired up, and ticks me off that the State has abused its power so much so to be a giant bully.

This week the Massachusetts Department of Children & Families filed for Justina's father to be held in contempt of court for speaking to The Blaze which most likely violated a judge's gag order.  Lou Pelletier, Justina's father, had to find a way for the maltreatment of his daughter and unjust actions committed by Boston Children's Hospital and Massachusetts Dept. of Children and Families to come to light. The Pelletier Family is in need of financial help because of the cost of the custody battle. If anyone would like to donate you can go to

Those are just two examples of our government having run amok.

Thomas Jefferson

If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circlue of our felicities.

Socialism And Communism Are Contrary To Christianity

 Fr. Marcel Guarnizo is a friend of Ed Morrissey who gives a response refuting the popular myth that the Church's "social justice" mission is compatible with Socialism and Communism. Rev. Marcel Guarnizo counters the belief that the ideas of socialist revolution and Communism have a place at the table with Christianity.  Many, even in the Catholic Church, believe that Christianity shares some ideals with the socialist revolution.  It seems to them that Socialism, Communism, and Christianity all help the poor. Father Guarnizo outlines and exposes the errors of Communism. 

Father Marcel Guarnizo writes: "The difference between the two was captured well by a joke I once read.  Communists will simply shoot you in the head, but the socialists will make you suffer for a lifetime."

Drawing from sound Christian teachings on economics and liberty Father Marcel Guarnizo explains his position in great detail and length. 

There has been much discussion in recent weeks over the debt of Christianity to—and its compatibility with —the ideas and praxis of the socialist revolution, and even of communism. Many, even in the Catholic Church, believe that we share some of the ideals of the socialist revolution because it seems to them that communism, socialism and Christianity are for the poor. In addition to this most unfortunate error, the opposite fallacy has also been made popular in the minds of many, namely that capitalists and advocates of a free market economy, hate the poor. 
But the historical record of communism tells an entirely different story.  I have worked with the countries of the former Soviet Union for over 20 years, and I have seen what communism does to populations and nations. The scourge of the socialist revolution around the world gave us 6 million people killed by artificial famines in Ukraine and, as documented by The Black Book of Communism, 20 million victims in the U.S.S.R., 65 million in China, a million in Vietnam, 2 million in North Korea, another 2 million in Cambodia, a million more in the rest of Eastern Europe, 150,000 in Latin America, 1.7 million in Africa, 1.5 million in Afghanistan and through the international Communist movement and related parties about 100,000 more victims in various nations.  This is a body count that reaches to 100 million victims worldwide. Communism completely destroyed the economy, social fabric, and political culture of dozens of nations. It hollowed out the intelligentsia, ruined every economy where the seed of socialism fully “bloomed,” and abrogated fundamental rights and individual freedoms of the nations it subjugated.  Clearly the Judeo-Christian commandment, “Thou shalt not kill,” is not among the doctrinal teachings of communism and the socialist revolution. It is hard to believe that the socialist revolution—unlike Nazism—still finds promoters and defenders in the West. 
The compatibility of Christianity and its legitimate concern for the poor owes nothing to the violent and inhuman regimes created by the socialist revolution. No system in human history has produced more poverty and misery than communism.
No greater foe has the Church ever encountered, than the communist revolution. During the 20th century, hundreds of thousands of religious and priests were sent to forced labor camps or simply executed. Five year plans to abolish religion were implemented and no true believer was ever safe in such nations. What social doctrine of the Church was ever derived from such madness? Communism and the socialist revolution are not only the antithesis of Christianity. They are also incompatible with free, just, and democratic societies.
The case against the “wonders” of the socialist revolution can be put to rest by simply reminding people that brick and mortar walls, guarded by armed soldiers, were necessary to keep people from fleeing the manmade paradise of “social equality” created by communists. As Milton Friedman pointed out, the “…strongest proof of the failure of socialism is the fall of the Berlin Wall.” 
Neither is a complex apologia required to explain why there is no substantial difference between socialism and communism. Communism, as American writer Whittaker Chambers documented, is nothing more than socialism with claws. Theoretically the two systems share the same ideals and philosophical framework. Communism simply takes socialism to its logical, final consequences.
The difference between the two was captured well by a joke I once read.  Communists will simply shoot you in the head, but the socialists will make you suffer for a lifetime.
To mount a case against the socialist and the communist would seem completely unnecessary given the historical record. But it is necessary, because, as we see, communism’s ideology continues to ensnare the minds of the West and many of its leaders. Perhaps the statement of Whittaker Chambers, when he decided to defect from his service to the Soviet Union, that he had chosen to join, “… the losing side” is not altogether settled. Many think the fall of the Soviet Union proved Chambers wrong, but I submit that Chambers understood, perhaps more clearly than most, the lasting and insidious nature of the socialist revolution in the West. It seems to me, that the West’s great partial victory against the Soviet Union is far from being final. Though the Soviet Empire has fallen, the West remains in an equally powerful cultural battle, which the architects of the socialist revolution themselves anticipated.

Gramsci’s Tactic: Cultural Hegemony
The socialist revolution in the West has been greatly influenced by the tactics of the Italian communist Antonio Gramsci. Writing in the 1930s, Gramsci recognized that the culture of the West, and in particular, the Catholic Church, stood as robust obstacles to a communist economic and political takeover in Europe. Gramsci proposed that a takeover of the cultural institutions—the achievement of cultural hegemony—was the necessary first step to the eventual takeover of the political and economic structures of a free society. 
This strategy meant that socialists should tirelessly work on the takeover over of universities and education, media, churches, and other cultural intermediary structures of the free world. He thought that the eroding of the cultural foundations would weaken a free society’s natural defenses and this would open the path for the economic and political aims of the socialist revolution. 
I would submit that the “cultural hegemony” of the socialist revolution is increasing in the West and at an alarming pace. The increasing loss of ground in our culture to socialism and its allies is creating a growing threat to the political and economic freedoms of America and Western democracies. 
Therefore, it seems to me, the battle between the free world and the socialist revolution is far from settled.  The errors of communism are legion, and the West should not slumber, as the battle is far from over.

The Errors of Communism 
  1. 1.   The Error Concerning the Nature of Man
Communism starts not with an economic error but an anthropological one. The economic and political effects of the communist system are but a symptom of a previous error, an error about the nature of man. 
The French 19th century political economist and writer Frédéric Bastiat clearly makes the point. Socialism, Bastiat argued, sees man as mere raw material, to be disposed of, to be molded by the “all knowing,” state. In his book, The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism, economist Friedrich von Hayek launches a similar attack on the socialists and their “omniscient state.”  Hayek demonstrated the impotence of the socialist to run an economy 
Man is just matter: This materialist vision of man is the first and most profound error of the socialist revolution. The materialist vision of man is what justifies the communists’ insistence that they may legitimately do whatever it takes to achieve their utopia. We must be transformed by the state, into its image and likeness. 
This materialist view disregards therefore the true dignity of man and the true nature of the human person—his rationality and free will. The artificial social orders engineered by socialists are completely devoid of a proper understanding of man and the kind of being that he is. CONTINUED

Rep. John Culberson on The Savage Nation: Immigration and Cutting Off Funds for Executive Orders

If the undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. illegally are required to pay a fine and fulfill a set of obligations before they can earn a green card, be a guest worker, or achieve U.S. citizen status, is that really amnesty?

Do you think the children of illegal immigrants should be penalized for something their parents did wrong?

I don't see sending the immigrants who broke the law back to their countries as a feasible option. What would be an acceptable alternative that wouldn't be considered amnesty?

I support cutting off funds for Obama's executive orders.  He is using them like a dictator to sidestep the Constitution and ignore Congress. President Obama took an oath to uphold the Constitution but he isn't doing that. This is one way that Congress can ensure that Obama doesn't abuse his power.
