A $64,000 Question for Chet Edwards

There is a full Bi-Partisan scandal in Congress that is not getting much attention involving the lobbying firm PMA. According to The Hill - "The firm’s [PMA] founder, Paul Magliocchetti, a former long-time aide on the House Appropriations Defense subcommittee, and others at his firm have been substantial donors to several Democratic lawmakers. For example, PMA employees have given Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) more than $134,000 in contributions, according to the Center for Responsive Politics." The FBI raided the firm's office and seized files in November, 2008.

Chet Edwards (D-TX17) has received almost $64,000 in campaign donations from PMA. This was explained away by Mr. Edwards by his saying a firm in District 17 was represented by PMA. So, now we know how much it costs to buy Chet's vote as chairman of military appropriations.

Paul Magliocchetti donated $1,000 to Chet Edwards in 2008. But other names pop up in connection with donations made to Edwards from employees of PMA as Mr. Magliocchetti used family members, friends, and employees to funnel money to Edwards' campaign coffers.

But, there is even more to the story as a $3,500 campaign contribution from Jon Walker is considered. Again quoting The Hill, "Jon Walker is listed as a partner for EVAS Worldwide, a New Jersey-based aircraft safety company, and gave $19,000 to lawmakers as an EVAS employee, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records. That is more than 40 percent of the political contributions from the company’s employees overall." However, EVAS has never heard of Walker nor do they have any record of him ever being employed by them.

You can see that the list can grow as the search engines work. Pretty soon we are talking about real money here. Only an investigation of PMA's operations will allow the truth to be known.

Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is presenting legislation to investigate PMA and many Democrats have signed on to make that possible.

The $64,000 Question for Chet Edwards is: Will you sign on in suppport of Rep. Flake's legislation to investigate this Bi-Partisan scandal?

If Edwards will not support the investigate our question will be: What do you have to hide, Chet?

Sinners In The Hands of an Angry President

O sinner! Consider the fearful danger you are in: it is a great furnace of wrath, a wide and bottomless pit, full of the fire of wrath, that you are held over in the hand of that God, whose wrath is provoked and incensed as much against you, as against many of the damned in hell. You hang by a slender thread, with the flames of divine wrath flashing about it, and ready every moment to singe it, and burn it asunder; and you have no interest in any Mediator, and nothing to lay hold of to save yourself, nothing to keep off the flames of wrath, nothing of your own, nothing that you ever have done, nothing that you can do, to induce God to spare you one moment.
- Jonathon Edwards (1703-1758) Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God
What I relate is the history of the next two centuries. I describe what is coming, what can no longer come differently: the advent of nihilism. ... For some time now our whole European culture has been moving as toward a catastrophe, with a tortured tension that is growing from decade to decade: restlessly, violently, headlong, like a river that wants to reach the end…
- Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) Will to Power

To classify Obama in political party terms is to underestimate his hatred of America. Obama is not merely a shrewd political animal. His loathing of capitalism, free market economics, and economic freedom is a spiritual journey because Obama is a nihilist. The Cloward/Piven Strategy, Rules for Radicals, the looting of American wealth and Keynesian Economics are simply the means to an end. The end goal of Obama’s spiritual journey is the complete destruction of the nation as created by the Founders. While the Congress is out to simply amass power for the sake of power, Obama’s quest is an intensely spiritual one. We are coming to the realization that we are a nation of sinners in the hands of an angry god-man President.

Jonathon Edwards concluded his sermon - "Therefore let everyone that is out of Christ, now awake and fly from the wrath to come." Today, our nation is becoming aware that to be “out of Obama” is to experience wrath and destruction. Obama believes in an anti-Constitution, a negative of the ideas of the framers. This negative belief is exhibited in Obama's statement: “But, the [Warren] Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society.” It is prudent to realize Obama's understanding of the Constitution is not a simple angel or demon Escher drawing where the mind can view only one interpretation at a time. This is negation of space, where everything that is ‘not’ Constitution replaces what ‘is’ Constitution.

The history of nihilism is both political, and in a thunderingly empty way, deeply spiritual. Russian author Ivan Turgenev’s character Bazarov explains in Fathers and Sons that a “nihilist is a person who does not bow down to any authority and who does not accept any principle on faith" because "conditions in the social organization are so bad as to make destruction desirable for its own sake, independent of any constructive program or possibility."

Real-life nihilist Sergei Nechaev (1847-1882) argued that gross immorality of the European monarchies and Catholic Jesuits meant that any action could be utilized in the sake of the people’s revolution to bring them down. In current times it is easy to understand that “the European monarchies” are now termed: the rich, CEOs, or Wall Street. Free market capitalism is an ethos, a belief system based on fact and an innate, but yet counter-intuitive understanding that skirts the edges of transcendence. How else can one explain the dichotomy such as lowering the price of a product generates more income? In today’s culture, the immorality of Nechaev’s Catholic Jesuits is now the sin of capitalists, free market economics, or conservatives. This is the depth of negated spiritual animosity Obama harbors for the normal American way of life. This president is a democratically elected revolutionist bent on the destruction of the nation he serves.

As Sergei Nechaev and Mikhail Bakunin, wrote in Catechism of a Revolutionist (1869):
He [the Revolutionist] is its [the civilized world] merciless enemy and continues to inhabit it with only one purpose - to destroy it.

The catechism of the church now becomes a catechism for revolutionary means in dialectical materialism’s encroachment into moral themes. The looming tax burden is beginning to cause second thoughts for the future of charitable donations. But fear not because Obama’s massive budget is full of government munificence. The angry god-man President will be the overseer in the State’s provision for the needy. According to the negative Constitution of redistribution, all capitalist sinners will be forcibly brought down to the level of needy. Could this be why Obama doesn’t care about the stock market plunge? If the market represents the wealth of the nation, then ridding us of that burden is a spiritual nihilist’s moral imperative. It should also be noted that a government that owns all debt has enslaved its citizens.

Steeped in the “new time religion” of Liberation Theology, a derivative of Marxist dialectics, Christ’s message of man’s restoration with God is contrived into one of social justice for the poor. Rather than teach the “good news” (gospel) of Christ’s blood atoning for the sins of all who accept it, liberation theology is a “critique of economic structures” with capitalism, not sin, being the source of all that is wrong with the world. Obama’s spiritual purpose is the destruction of the ethos of capitalism.

By deftly redirecting the sin of an individual to an idea, the Marxist dialectic materialist argument swallows Judeo/Christian values whole. The State determines sin, as anything not proscribed by the State. As sinners in the hand of an angry President, taxes are now viewed as atoning contributions for the State’s collection plate. This inevitably means The Rich and Capitalists can only receive atonement through State seizure of all private property. Like Christ’s message to the Rich Young Ruler, Obamessiah’s message for The Rich – a steadily growing group as the necessary credentials are lowered – is give all your riches to the State and follow me. He neglects to add that he is intent upon leading us over the cliff to our total destruction.

There is also another insidious destructive activity that has been building for at least two generations involving the insipid acceptance of meaninglessness. The true danger of nihilism is not the philosophy itself, because even Nietzsche acknowledged that upon the brink of nothingness, man would find the opportunity to search for meaning.
I praise, I do not reproach, [nihilism's] arrival. I believe it is one of the greatest crises, a moment of the deepest self-reflection of humanity. Whether man recovers from it, whether he becomes master of this crisis, is a question of his strength. It is possible… Nietzsche

Nature after all abhors a vacuum and man is a spiritual being. God is certainly able to fill the void.

The cultural danger of nihilism is the trivialization of the idea of nothingness. The Left’s constant chattering has devolved meaning into absurdity. Years of trivializing the important, while heralding the arcane and vacuous has resulted in a generation and a half that blithely believe in nothing. Without so much as reading The Bible, the Declaration of Independence, or The Constitution, these sanguine know-nothings dismiss such writing as mythology, fatally flawed, the ramblings of ancient evil men. Karen Carr, in her book, The Banalization of Nihilism discusses how the glib acceptance of meaninglessness “creates an environment where ideas can be imposed forcibly with little resistance, raw power alone determining intellectual and moral hierarchies.”

To this end Obama speaks dramatic words for the cameras knowing that those watching him are experiencing him emotionally, not rationally. His speeches implant dreamy ideas in viewers incapable of hearing the menace of power behind the dream. We know that Obama does the exact opposite in reality and are angered at his duplicity. We must understand that he is not held accountable by the crowds because reality in their minds is meaningless. They cheer the screen image of Obamessiah, while we, the vanquished sinners devoid of rights, property, and freedom of thought pensively await our visit to Room 101. Nothing is more terrifying than to find yourself in the hands of an angry god-man President.

Defending Conservatives Against Liars - A Lesson From the Wisdom of Job

The recent worldwide news blitz of Rush Limbaugh’s/Magic Negro satire offers an excellent lesson from The Book Job to counter attacks on conservative leaders. William Safire’s book The First Dissident: The Book of Job in Today's Politics describes Job as a political dissident not only for demanding to plead his case before the ultimate authority, but also for his refusal to accept the democratic abuses of his friends. The Joban story applies to today’s conservative leadership that denounces fellow members for minor faults rather than pointing their attention to our political adversaries. The Book of Job offers important insights to avoid this error.

The Joban story revolves around a wager made between Lucifer and God concerning the faith of Job. Lucifer, aka The Accuser, makes the charge Job worships God only because God has favored him. "Allow me to touch all the he has, and he will curse You to Your face", Lucifer accuses. God accepts the challenge. Lucifer is allowed to destroy Job's family and wealth through senseless tragedies. Job's wife finally encourages him to "Curse God and die". When Job’s three friends come to comfort him, they instead begin a series of debates to convince him of an offense to God. Job defends his integrity and finally demands to plead his case before God.

When God appears He overwhelms Job with His power. Job then repents in dust and ashes. Job is now a man forever changed by the presence of God and certain his Redeemer, or Advocate, lives. Lucifer is a cosmic loser, Job's friends get a dressing down from the Almighty for not speaking correctly about Him, and Job is restored twofold in family and wealth. Job's friends are then required to offer a sacrifice, but only the interceding prayer of Job will restore them with God.

The methods of The Accuser are politics erased of character and ethics. It is not without reason Saul Alinsky dedicates Rules for Radicals - "To the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer." Luciferian politics allows the shadiest of characters to freely cast stones at every righteous but flawed man.

The radical left, who hold themselves to no such standards, hold conservatives to a standard of near-perfection. The error of conservative leadership is the same as that of Job’s friends: accepting the premise of the left’s charge and offering self-righteous “help.” The accused is caught in the crossfire. Despite the good intentions of conservative leadership, the effects are the same as if their intentions were bad. Results are every bit as important as intentions and Job’s friends were wrong because Job was innocent.

Consider the Middle Name of Obama Brouhaha:

1) Opportunity - Obama's middle name matches that of brutal Middle Eastern dictator.

2) Method -- Luciferians create logic that use of Obama's middle name equals calling him an Islamic Terrorist.

3) Results -- The media destroys the character of anyone using "Hussein" and useful idiots pile on. The GOP discredits own members.

4) Nihilistic Reality -- Obama declares intent to use full name in swearing in ceremony verifying the false nature of the entire saga.

Rush Limbaugh explains the current Magic Negro episode on his website:
They [MSM] took the occasion of what actually was the inappropriate use of elements of this program, (but that's another story). They took the occasion of somebody running for the RNC chairmanship sending out a CD that had this song on it to revive it anew, and frame it and cast it as they wanted it cast. The last person they wanted commenting on it was me because I'm the one who could have set it straight. Newt Gingrich couldn't set it straight because Newt Gingrich was clueless about what this was all about. Instead, Newt Gingrich sends a note to the Drive-By Media saying, "This is wholly inappropriate. I can't believe it! This is not how we reach out."

The Luciferian pattern of attack:

1) Opportunity -- Although Obama commented on the parody in 2007, the subject is brought up again via GOP chairman candidate Pete Saltsman’s c.d.

2) Method -- The Luciferians use the “Soap Opera Sucker Play” where everyone is consulted except the individual actually involved and ask Newt Gingrich his opinion.

3) Results -- Newt Gingrich blames Rush for the situation. Newt is separated from the conservative fellowship. The GOP is divided on issue.

4) Nihilistic Reality -- another untruth about Rush Limbaugh is established in the minds of the useful idiots. This will be helpful in establishing the need for The Fairness Doctrine.

The Luciferians are more empowered and lie in wait for next opportunity.

We must be astute to the ways of the accuser. Those in positions of power should consider who is making the accusation rather than rushing to give an answer to empower their own self-righteousness. Assuming, as did Job's friends and Newt Gingrich, that the one in the wrong is your dear old friend and ally is the error the Luciferians are lying in wait to record. Ronald Reagan was correct when he said, "Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican." The key word is FELLOW -- equal in values, integrity, and liberty, i.e. a republican.

In practice, this will require shrewdness on the part of conservative leaders; not that this should be news to those up on their scripture memory verses. When the accusing left presents an accusation of a fellow conservative:

1) Allow the targeted person to first set the record straight and make his defense. Then support that defense vigorously or remain quiet in public. Remember, you are not an omnipotent god knowing all the facts.

2) Remember this one undeniable truth: The left, like Lucifer, uses lies carefully -- enough truth to sound plausible but with a slight twist. It is the Luciferian way to trick the ill-informed into making a rash decision that bears a dear cost.

3) Never forget that while the powers of the air may promise a kingdom, power, and glory and may tempt your eyes with what looks good for food or to make one look wise, the result will be separation from the safety of the group. No one can please both the left and the right. Conservatives must remember the safety of both numbers and unity.

4) Always remember that today's left contains the most corrupt political mercenaries in the history of the nation. The perfect retort would be to tell them to clean up their own house and then list a few outrageous acts of corruption to back up your request. (That shouldn't be too hard considering the exponential evidence of political malfeasance.)

The Luciferian attacks on honorable, but flawed men can be overcome by maintaining personal integrity, supporting one another, and most importantly by directing unified ire upon the unrighteous nature of those making accusations. The power of good intentions receiving good results will banish the accuser from the court of public opinion. This is the transcendent nature of the wisdom taught in the Joban story. Conservatives must now use that wisdom through applied knowledge.
