41And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, 42 saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done.” 

–Luke 22:41-42; Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane

Marine General James Amos—Commandant of the Marines– recently responded to the sacking of Iraq and President Obama’s subsequent inaction.

Speaking at the Brookings Institute Tuesday, Amos said the Obama administration paved the way for the emergence of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) by completely withdrawing American troops in 2011.

“I have a hard time believing that had we been there, and worked with the government, and worked with parliament, and worked with the minister of defense, the minister of interior, I don’t think we’d be in the same shape we’re in today,” Amos said.

Many know that it is a violation of the UCMJ for any active duty service member to criticize the Commander-in-Chief in public, but that’s exactly what General Amos did and, I suspect, that the timing of this was intentional, since he could have waited until his October 2014 retirement to make such a statement.

But he did not…likely because criticism of the C-in-C from an active duty 4-star general is more likely to get the attention of the public.

In the wake of this, I got into an “argument” with a well-meaning man who hard time getting around the illegal nature of the general’s actions. He couldn’t quite grasp the concept that someone might do something like this on purpose; do it and pay the fine or stick one’s arms out to be cuffed…or go to one’s execution meekly…all for the sake of truth and honor.

When I pointed out that this is exactly what Jesus the Christ, many of the Old Testament prophets and almost all of the Apostles did, then my friend began to get it.

But it isn’t necessary to go back 2000 years to find persons who stood up for truth in the face of given legal authorities.mlkjail

Any Marine is unique for a number of reasons, but one thing stands out, especially in relation to General Amos’ actions: Marines are willing to risk everything for honor and for their fellows. General Amos has charge over the entire Corps and, under his charge, many Marines have died or been permanently maimed. Marines all go into the Corps knowing that they may die or be maimed, but they hope that our country’s civilian leadership will not make their deaths/disfigurement meaningless by failing to lead—and that is exactly what President Obama has done.

So, I suspect that making this decision was easy for the general. I bet it was a piece of cake.

However, I bet that there are a lot more men and women like the general, many who aren’t even service members. At least I hope there are. I predict that this country will need them soon.

Our Pilgrim Forefathers came to this nation in two waves:  First in 1607 (James Bay, Virginia) and secondly, at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts in 1620 (The Mayflower); they came here with the desire to find a land where they could experience “Freedom of Religion.”

The first European settlers came to this land as people who wished to worship GOD as their consciences dictated and not as they were told by either a governmental or external force.  These men and women were champions of liberty.

When one reads the words of The Mayflower Compact, one understands that these pioneers took their beliefs and convictions seriously.  As a matter of fact, the people who boarded The Mayflower came to this country and left their families, their way of life and even their children behind as they braved the perilous waters of the Atlantic Ocean in search of a better life.

Furthermore, the men and women who came to America also sought “Economic Liberty” as well.  In Europe, many people were locked out of lucrative occupations by restrictive “trade guilds” and “labor associations”; the Economist Dr. Walter Williams points out in his book The State Against Blacks that one of the chief reasons that the Pilgrims journeyed to our shores is that they sought a better material way of life – they pursued “economic freedom” for this children and their extended families.

From 1607 until this present day, people still as the song by Neil Diamond wonderfully states, “They come to America!

When we were children, many of us use to sing the song / motto of our great land entitled, “My Country Tis of Thee.”  The words flow like this –

“My Country Tis of Thee

Sweet Land of Liberty of Thee I sing

Land where my Fathers died, land of the Pilgrim’s pride

from every mountainside let freedom ring!”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quoted these words in his famous “I Have A Dream” speech that he delivered in August of 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial.

Songs like “My Country Tis of Thee” or “Of Thee I Sing” are important because the citizens of a nation must share a sense of collective identity and loyalty to one another and to the destiny of their country.

From 1607 until this very day the people who have come to our shores from all walks of life have directly bought into the narrative of this great land.

This is one of the reasons why the immigration dilemma that our nation has experienced over the last twenty to twenty-five years is so vexing.

The last comprehensive Immigration Reform that was signed into law took place in 1986 during the sixth year of the Reagan Administration.  At that time our nation had an estimated 3.25 million illegal aliens who were hiding in the shadows.  That law was supposed to fix a broken system.

Fast forward to 2014 and there is now an estimated 11 to 12 or perhaps 15 million illegal residents residing within the borders of The United States of America.

The existential question is this – What are we to make of all of these people and their children who came here illegally?

In one sense, the answer seems somewhat simple:  If we are a nation of laws and not of men, then we need to fully apply the immigration law of 1986 and close whatever loopholes may exist.

One of the things that has successfully bound our nation together is that people who came to this nation in the first high wave of immigration in years like 1848, 1880, 1900 to 1910, and 1920 adhered to the rules.

In the past both the Legislative and Executive branches were much more decisive in how they dealt with the issue of prolific immigration.

In 1924, Congress passed a very restrictive Immigration Law that was based on “Immigration Quotas.”  The thought behind this law at the time was that the social infrastructure of the nation was strained and taxed too far.  The law sought to put a brake on the great wave of immigration that had taken place during the forty-year period of 1880 through 1920.

The 1924 law was heavily weighted towards people of “northern European extraction” – dare we say of “WASP origin” (White, Anglo-Saxon and Protestant).

One of the tragedies of our immigration policies during the period of 1880 through 1925 was that our country was very restrictive of Asian immigration (or non WASP) – especially that regarding Chinese people who sought to come to this country (this type of discrimination was a terrible blight in our nation’s immigration history).

On balance, our nation has a unique, rich, and paradoxical way in which we have historically handled entry into the American mainstream.

In 1965, Congress passed a more open Immigration Law that reversed the restrictive clauses of the 1924 legislation.  Now for the first time Asians, Latin American, and men and women of Color from the West Indies to Africa were welcomed with “open arms” into America.  We particularly welcomed people who fled from totalitarian regimes as “prisoners of conscience.”

Which Immigration Law model should we follow today:  1924, 1965, or 1986?

This writer does not claim to possess a “crystal ball” or great powers of clairvoyance with regards to solving our nation’s immigration problems.

What is needed is for both Republicans and Democrats to realize that 9/11 was not too long ago and that there are enemies of this great nation who take a long view towards bringing down our great country.

Enemy sleeper cells exist within our nation and a country that will not enforce its borders will soon be a nation on the brink of disaster and possible dissolution.

Those of us who watch the dismal state of U.S. foreign policy will find the following DiploPundit post on Bolivia enlightening:

According to the OIG report on the US Embassy in La Paz, Bolivia released on July 17, just before the OIG inspection conducted in February and March 2014, the State Department “recalled the chargé and the political/economic section chief who served as acting DCM from August 2012 to September 2013 and took steps to mitigate some of the embassy’s leadership problems.”

This means that, during the period when the Bolivian Government expelled the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Peace Corps, and the Department of State’s ended all U.S. counternarcotics programs:

  • There was no ambassador
  • The top 2 officials were removed before the inspector arrived to investigate the situation
  • DiploPundit points out (emphasis added): “Just before the inspection, the WHA bureau and the Bureau of Human Resources apparently agreed that, because a permanent ambassador is not likely in the foreseeable future, the Department would assign a permanent chargé d’affaires and a permanent DCM in La Paz. It only took them about five years to make up their minds.”

A rather unusual situation. What was happening?

To make a long story short,

nearly all American staff members told the OIG team that they did not understand mission priorities or their part in achieving goals. The OIG team frequently heard staff tell of instructions given one day only to have the former front office forget or reverse them the next. Skepticism about public diplomacy programming one month could be replaced by front office enthusiasm for a cultural project the next. Reporting officers, already in a difficult environment for contact development and reporting, stated that the front office did little to direct reporting or provide training and mentoring. Embassy staff members told the OIG team they wanted clear and steady guidance from the front office but did not receive it.

You, gentle reader, may ask, why fuss over Bolivia, a place most of us may have difficulty finding in a map, a place best known for cocaine production and Butch Cassidy‘s final destination?

Well, because Bolivia, which owns 70% of the world’s lithium reserves, is getting plenty of attention from

  • China, with whom it has a space satellite program, and which is investing billions of dollars in mining projects,
  • Russia, including Putin’s own attention to gas production with Gazprom; Putin has slammed the efforts of Evo Morales – who is president of Bolivia and was president of the coca growers’ union – to keep coca leaf consumption legal (perhaps not coincidentally, coca production has declined),
  • Iran, a buyer of Bolivian uranium and lithium, whose largest embassy in the hemisphere is located in La Paz.

A note on lithium:

a byproduct of lithium also has a little known and insidious application: It can be used as an alternative or as an enhancer to uranium, a key component needed to develop nuclear weapons. In particular, lithium-6 is an internationally controlled substance because of its “booster” role in smaller, highly efficient thermonuclear devices.

In other words, it makes bad bombs smaller, worse and also more portable. And thus policymakers should be concerned that the deal with Bolivia could bring the Islamic Republic one step closer to nuclear capability.

Indeed, in our age of America’s “smart diplomacy”, the neglect of, and lack of leadership in the Bolivian Embassy is emblematic of the “leading from behind” Obama era.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry, who declared The era of the Monroe Doctrine is over,” thinks of Bolivia as “our back yard.”

Communism is all about control. Nothing the individual does can be allowed;  everything is done for the purpose of consolidating power around the ruling elite and no one else.

Of course, things like guns and automobiles are anathema to the Communist. Both grant the individual a degree of independence and self-reliance that can actively be used against the whims of the powerful.

I’ll leave the discussion on guns for another time. Let’s talk about cars now.

Cars would not have been possible without capitalism: Competition, creativity, invention, technology, artistry, craftsmanship, all are brought together from free enterprise creating the monetary means to develop, purchase, deliver – and, for the consumer – buy the car.

Cars speak of freedom: freedom of movement, freedom of choice, freedom to hit the road when you best feel like it, freedom to buy, lease, keep, sell, or trade up your car.

Cars speak of individualism: You can personalize your car, or not, as you best see fit.

No wonder Communists hate having the hoi-polloi own cars.

Real Communists want to be the only ones in the cars, not the great unwashed tying up traffic and polluting the air. For decades we’ve been subjected to hogwash about “Cuba’s classic, beautiful cars,” i.e., the remaining 1950s jalopies the Cuban populace must make do with since, a. the Communists keep people poor, and b. the country’s broke. The useful idiots praising the jalopies can admire classic vintage cars any time they want from the comfort of their prosperous societies (since none of them actually have to scrounge in Havana for parts with which they may keep their own jalopies running), while simultaneously ignoring that Fidel Castro owned dozens of limos, some of which are now being used as taxis in Havana. To add insult to injury, one of the articles talking about Fidel’s old limos says,

The new fleet will give tourists a quirky and lighthearted look at Cuba’s history.

I leave it to you, gentle reader to decide whether half a century of misery in the island-prison deserves “a quirky and lighthearted look.”

Venezuela’s Cuba-appointed dictator, Nicolas Maduro, is hell-bent on following Fidel’s footsteps, so, of course, the country is a wreck as chavismo continues to rip off the private economy for well over a decade.

While the ruling chavistas enrich themselves, the country went begging to the Chinese for a bailout. Like the rest of the country, the auto industry – in a country where gasoline is six cents per gallon – is brought to a standstill:
Venezuela’s Car Culture Fades
Production is drying up as big auto makers can’t obtain dollars to pay parts suppliers and sky-high inflation turns older cars into investment vehicles.

The car industry this year began on a particularly dire note, with only Toyota and Volvo AB’s Mack de Venezuela powering up their assembly lines. By March, Toyota halted production for three months, followed by Italian truck maker Iveco SpA in April. Ford, GM and Chrysler rolled back production amid big losses due to currency devaluations as President Nicolás Maduro’s government tried to address a shortage of dollars by weakening the value of the bolívar.

Behold, the assembly line:

But fear not: chavistas ride on, in bullet-proof cars.

We need to face this: we have no southern border.

Our government has purposefully left it porous for years and, this year, has finally stopped the charade. And the stoppage isn’t even a response to a foreign onslaught. It’s a domestic onslaught–planned for by the federal government, in collusion with at least two foreign governments, and funded with our inflated currency. Foreigners are being bussed in and flown to all points in the USA, using fuel purchased by American taxpayers. These foreigners are being housed and fed using those same funds.

Children are only a minority of the invasion. Most are adults and many are not Mexican. Some aren’t even Spanish-speakers. In this day of the ascendant Caliphate, what does that tell you?

Just today, someone supplanted the Stars and Stripes with a bleached-out white flag. Pranksters? I don’t know.   At least three times, New York City has been successfully and unsuccessfully targeted by Islamic terrorists and, in 2009, upon release from Camp Bucca in Iraq, ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Bagdadi said to his former US Army captors, “I’ll see you in New York.” Maybe someone in NYC is submitting on behalf of his/her city.

Or perhaps it was someone on high in the federal government telling the truth for a change. Those few in government who are not enemies have given up. Why do I say that? Because they won’t do anything meaningful to counter the domestic attackers who have disguised themselves as political leaders.

“This business will get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it.”

Our only protection is God. But we have to ask. And there’ll be no giving up

On August 25, 2008, I wrote this post at my original blog. It was a comparison of the contemporaneous Russia-baldilocksGeorgia War with a possible future event between the US and Mexico. Fascinating, in light of what’s going right now. There is a huge factor which I failed to imagine, however: an enemy-infiltrated White House.

By Pastor George Kelly

The citizens of the United States of America historically have prided themselves in the principle of E Pluribus Unum (out of the many ONE) as opposed to the concept of  “Ex Uno Plures” (out of one becomes Many).

The United States of America is a nation that has accomplished what many countries have failed to realize and that is a unity of its people amidst great diversity.

Last week, this journalist, cited two significant works by two different scholars who possessed divergent political views – the Economist /Professor Thomas Sowell author of “Ethnic America” (1983) and the late Historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. the author of “The Disuniting of America” (1991).

Professor Sowell is a Libertarian / 19th century liberal and Mr. Schlesinger was a “New Deal” liberal of impeccable credentials.  Nevertheless, despite the deep difference of philosophical opinion of these two gentlemen on many different fronts – the root causes of The Great Depression would be a case in point – they both loved America and believed in the “genius” of America’s ability to absorb so many people of different faiths, races, ethnicities, nationalities.

Perhaps we have flourished with regards to “assimilating” so many different peoples  from all over the world for such a long time that we forgot the causes that make for national harmony / unity?

Political Scientists employ a term known as “political socialization” to describe a nation’s process of successfully assimilating people of different nationalities.

What does political socialization entail?

First and foremost, immigrants who arrive within a nation must adopt the dominant narrative of their new nation’s history.  This is why significant days such as July 4th (Independence Day) are vitally important.  July 4, 1776 reminds Americans why they came into existence in the first place.

Secondly, there must be a “common language.”  In the past, various nations had to adopt what was known as a “lingua franca” – a language of commerce before they could engage in business or trade with one another.  In the United States, English is the dominant language – and has been since the first colonists arrived at James Bay in 1607.

Without a common language, America would experience anarchy similar to what is best captured and described by the Biblical narrative known as “The Tower of Babel” which is recorded in the 11th chapter of the book of Genesis.  Oddly enough the word “Babel” means confuse or confusion…

Thirdly, new immigrant arrivals must “buy-in” to common traditions and implicit rules of engagement that are not always expressed, but clearly understood by the dominant population.  In America we refer to “the rules of the game” and “fair play” and that we are “a nation of laws and not men.”  We respect a soft “separation of Church and State” without resulting in violence towards others who disagree with us.

Finally, political socialization means that a nation helps their new arrivals to understand the prevailing “worldview” which undergirds their institutions of Law, Government, Ethics and Morality.

In the current volatility that takes place during the midst of our fierce and vociferous debates on Immigration policy, it is so easy to forget the ideas, factors, and principles that made us what we are and what are essential to our continued survival and flourishing as a nation.

Americas must take a few minutes to breathe and to take stock of who we are and what we wish to remain as we march forward into the future.

Change must come, but how do we successfully change?

The old adage is that there are only two constants in life and they are death and taxes.

Nevertheless, the United States has managed to negotiate tremendous change and upheaval because at its very core the principles of her founding have remained constant and inviolable.

In a work of fiction that this author read not too long entitled “Deadlock” by James Scott Bell, one of his characters – a former associate justice of the Supreme Court speaks to the current Chief Justice in the story – and proclaims that the founding of America was based on an outlook of reality derived from “Biblical Metaphysics” (the associate justice was referring to “The Declaration of Independence”).

Perhaps it might be a good exercise to read and re-read our founding documents.

Perhaps we could start by repeating “The Pledge of Allegiance” in our minds and hearts each day during the course of our day:

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of The United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation, under God, indivisible with Liberty and Justice for All.”

Some food for thought?

I learned a new word today: syncretism.

Syncretism[…] is the mixing of Christianity with something else such that they become a different gospel. Syncretism can take place with a positive-thinking gospel, a nationalist emphasis, or emerging culture. Syncretism happens more than we might know.

[…]oil_and_water

When anything is added to the message of the gospel, the uniqueness and sufficiency of Christ is compromised and another gospel can be created that is, well, actually not the gospel. In this, obscurantism and syncretism are closely related, each leading to the creation of a false gospel.

Syncretism can be most easily seen when two or more starkly contrasting religions are mixed. Around the world, examples are readily available where Christ has been preached in places with long and various religious traditions. In many cases, pieces and parts of the traditional religion will remain while Christ is added to the mix.

[Notes: Obscurantism is defined in the article and I spell-checked the excerpt.]

I was already familiar with the concept, but did not know it had a specific name. Of course, the practice is almost as old as the Church itself. An example: when European Christians were conquering and Christianizing the New World, Africa and Asia, they often bound up Christianity with things European. A specific example: when my father was growing up in Kenya—then known as British East Africa—native children had to have a “Christian” name–meaning a European given name–to attend schools run by the British.

These days, we see this type of heresy—this syncretism–taking on other guises: [insert ethnic group here] Liberation Theologies, Chrislam, and such. The Enemy is busy!

At any rate, I love being able to assign a word to a known concept.baldilocks

It goes without saying that the United States of America – with the exception of Native Americans – is a nation of immigrants.

Those of us who have been blessed to be citizens of The United States of America pride ourselves in the principle of E Pluribus Unum (out of the many one).

Two significant works by two different scholars who have sharp and divergent views were written by the Economist Thomas Sowell – “Ethnic America” (1983) and by the late Historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. – “The Disuniting of America” (1991).

In Ethnic America, Professor Sowell takes a close looks a 9 Ethnic Groups who constitute the bulk of the American population.  Even though this book was first released in 1983, much of what Dr. Sowell wrote is still valuable as a history of how many different racial groups came to America broke and penniless and in two to four generations these newly minted Americans brought innovation, entrepreneurship, hard work and energy and a new sense of patriotism to the body politic.

Mr. Sowell points out that the bulk of the immigrants arrived in America between the years of 1880 and 1920 when there was literally No Governmental Assistance to speak of whatsoever.  Jewish Americans had an average of $9.00 per person in their pockets in the early 1880s when they arrived at Ellis Island; by 1969, Jewish American had the highest per capita income of any ethnic group in the United States.

Accomplishments by men and women of Jewish ancestry have been breathtaking.  One simply looks at names such as George Gershwin (The Swing); Felix Frankfurter (former Supreme Court Justice); Hank Greenberg (great Baseball player with the Detroit Tigers) – and the breakthroughs brought about by Jewish brilliance in Finance goes without saying.  Our Jewish friends developed their social, political, and economic skills without much assistance from the US Government.

Black Americans were slaves for much of their history within America (1661 through 1863), yet, no other ethnic group has traveled as far as Black Americans have in order to walk alongside of their fellow Americans.  Dr. Sowell points out that in 1865 Black Americans were virtually illiterate (except for the 500,000 Free Persons of Color and the Blacks of West Indian descent who received their freedom 1 to 2 generations before most Black Americans).

However, within a 25 to 40 year period, more than half of Black Americans achieved basic literacy levels; this was a phenomenal accomplishment and one that took place without a large role of the American government.

In The Disuniting of America, the New Deal liberal historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. expressed his grave concern that the things that made America unique – the fabulous contributions of Western Civilization were being subtlety and at times not so subtlety undermined by the phenomenon known as “Multiculturalism.”

What is “Multiculturalism?”

One might argue that any attempt to define multiculturalism must end in futility.

This writer understands Mr. Schlesinger’s definition of “Multiculturalism” as more a description of what he felt was a literary coup-de-tat in an attempt to replace the literary works of the Western tradition (the works of “Dead White Males” – Homer, Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles, Virgil, et cetera…) with more modern works from disaffected groups.

These disaffected groups are members in the Academy – namely Feminist Activists, African-American Writers, and Latin-American Academicians along with other Ethnic groups – who feel that their contributions to America have been minimized, overlooked or slighted in the past.

Mr. Schlesinger feared that America was in grave danger of losing her soul as her nation’s history, literary works, and traditions were being usurped and redefined.

One might see the irony in Professor Schlesinger’s concern with the dangers posed by multiculturalism as he constantly railed against Conservatives who sought to preserve the cultural norms of American society as they were being transformed in the period of 1932 through 1964.

In The Disuniting of America, Mr. Schlesinger paid homage to the British Statesman Sir Edmund Burke by acknowledging the fact that liberals of his pedigree strayed too far away from Burke’s warnings in their efforts of political-social accommodation to American minorities who suffered discrimination and displacement in the past.

Why is this so important today?

As our nation, looks to handle the current Immigration crisis in the Southwestern United States along The Mexican border along with a broken and disastrous Immigration policy we would do well to consider the observations and concerns of both Professors Sowell and Schlesinger.

The citizens of The United States must determine if they wish to remain a nation based upon the concept of “E Pluribus Unum” (out of the many becomes ONE) or a nation which it is described as  “Ex Uno Plures” (out of One becomes Many).

Latino Leftists go all in on the “ethnic” “justice”:

The “Tequila Party,” a Latino group formed in opposition to the Tea Party, wrote to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director JamesComey on Monday torequest that the Tea Party and several officials be investigated for their role in protesting and blocking the transfer of illegal aliens captured in Texas toMurrieta, California. The protests on July 1 turned back three busloads of aliens, though more are scheduled to arrive.

In their letter–signed by California attorney Ruben Salazar, pro-amnesty activist Dee Dee Garcia Blase, and Nebraska attorney Shirl Mora James–the group, writing on the letterhead of a new organization called “Somos Independents,” called on Holder and Comey to launch an “outside investigation” of Murrieta city councilwoman Diana Serafin; U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents Steven Golda and Gabe Pacheo; Murrieta mayor Alan Long, protest leader Patrice Lynes; the Murrieta Police Department, and local resident Joseph Culberson.josecuervogold

In other words, these people are looking to have Holder’s DOJ facilitate the detention of real and perceived Tea Party members–and to have the FBI arrest them as domestic terrorists. Oh the irony of that!

Tequila’s well-earned nickname is Ta Kill Ya. We all know that this is the ultimate intent of the Organized Left–to purge the world of “non believers.” Bill Ayers told us so. All of the lawlessness perpetrated by the government is intended to goad enough of the citizenry to violence, so that the purge will have the appearance of justification.

And, guess what, my Latino friends of all nationalities and political persuasions: when your usefulness comes to an end, you’ll be purged also. The Left has always styled itself as the champion of the brown and the poor–until we become inconvenient and too mouthy. Same as it ever was; ta-kill-ya, indeed.

Solution? This, too, is the same as it has always been: beseeching the Almighty and trusting in Him.

Steve Graham outlines how simple it all really is.

Drink the Living Water–or the poison brown water. Your choice.
