This is an informative and should be an eye-opening video. Too many people are ignoring what is happening to the world and who better to tell them than a survivor of persecution.
Paris: Muslims screaming “Allahu akbar” murder at least 60, take 100 hostages.
But remember, above all, it’s a religion of peace.
And they are bringing in millions of these savages — as we speak. I have warned for years of this coming jihad. I was attacked, smeared, and marginalized. We were right about it all. And still my colleagues and I are blacklisted. Hundreds are dead and the war has just begun. We did everything in our power to save lives. But the political, media and academic elites aligned with the savages. And now scores are dead in Paris — and you ain’t seen nothing yet. Pamela Geller http://pamelageller.com/
With terror situation still underway in Paris, President Obama said he didn’t want to speculate on who is responsible for the attacks. He is in full scrub-a-dub jihad mode. He’s one of them. http://pamelageller.com/
Tomorrow is not just a day off from work in the middle of the week. Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day where we should all stop and pray for our veteran’s, living and dead, who gave everything they had to make sure we could be safe in our own country. My Great Uncle Murphy traveled the world in uniform learning and then training others to respect their uniform and their job. My father served overseas at the end of World War II and eventually gave twenty years of his life in uniform. The rewards of serving our country isn’t monetary but it leaves one with a work ethic and a sense of accomplishment, responsibility, and patriotism. Here are just a few of the many quotes on the subject of veterans and their and how important they were when they worked to provide coming generations with freedom.
“I think there is one higher office than president and I would call that patriot.” —Gary Hart
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” —Elmer Davis
“On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.”?—Dan Lipinski
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. “?—Joseph Campbell
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ?—John F. Kennedy
“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.” —G.K. Chesterton
“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.” – Billy Graham
“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” —Mark Twain
“Never give in — never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” —Winston Churchill
“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” —Patrick Henry
The president decided to not represent the citizens of this country and made the wrong decision on the Keystone Pipeline. The Daily Signal got it right so check out the link or read it below to see what won’t be benefitting the United States under the current regime.
9 Reasons Why Obama Just Made Wrong Decision on Keystone Pipeline
Jobs and economic growth.
Opponents will minimize the job numbers, saying that the pipeline will create only “a handful” of permanent jobs—and that’s correct. In his speech Obama said, “So if Congress is serious about wanting to create jobs, this was not the way to do it.” But here’s what that argument misses: the tens of thousands of construction jobs that the pipeline project will create. In fact, simply building the southern portion—which didn’t need Obama’s approval—has already created 4,000 construction jobs. And if opponents are dismissive of Keystone XL, they should be dismissive of all construction projects, as they’re all temporary—because they’re construction jobs. Further, Keystone XL would add economic value, transport an important energy resource efficiently, and result in billions of dollars of tax revenue for states it runs through.
Stable supply of oil from an important trading partner that will lower gas prices.
The pipeline would carry up to 830,000 barrels of oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast, where U.S. refineries are already equipped to handle heavier crudes. The pipeline will efficiently provide supply from a secure source and a friendly and important trading partner. Contra Obama’s claim today that “the pipeline would not lower gas prices for American consumers,” increased oil supplies will lower gas prices, though the impact may be small.
Safest mode of getting oil and gas to Americans.
Many in the United States live near a pipeline without even knowing about it. America has more than 500,000 miles of crude oil, petroleum, and natural gas pipelines and another 2 million miles of natural gas distribution pipelines. When it comes to accidents, injuries, and fatalities, pipelines are the safest mode of transporting oil and gas.
Should be a business decision, not a government one.
In concluding with Secretary of State John Kerry’s assessment that the project would not be in the national interest, Obama said, “The pipeline would not make a meaningful long-term contribution to our economy.” It is not the role of the federal government to make that determination. The federal government shouldn’t make that determination with the construction of a new restaurant or boutique shop. And it shouldn’t make that determination with a pipeline. After the State Department concluded that the pipeline was environmentally safe, the decision to build Keystone XL should have been a business decision—not a government one.
We’ve done this before.
The Keystone XL Pipeline is just a portion of the larger Keystone Pipeline System. You can view a map of the entire system here. Unbeknownst to many is the fact that the U.S. has already granted one of those presidential permits for the Keystone Pipeline System. For phase I of the Keystone Pipeline System, TransCanada filed an application with the Department of State (DOS) in April 2006, and the department began an environmental review in September 2006. TransCanada received its presidential permit for phase I in March 2008. From beginning to end, the process took 23 months. It has taken 86 months for Obama to say no.
It was Albert Einstein who said the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” The State Department must be teetering on the edge of insanity, because after multiple environmental reviews concluding that Keystone XL poses minimal environmental risk to soil, wetlands, water resources, vegetation, fish, and wildlife, the Obama administration still rejected the permit application.
Negligible climate impact.
In a speech in June 2013, Obama said the climate effects of Keystone XL would have a major impact on the administration’s decision. These effects, however, would be minimal. The State Department’s final environmental impact statement concludes that the Canadian oil is coming out of the ground whether Keystone XL is built or not, so the difference in greenhouse gas emissions is minuscule. No matter your position on climate change, Keystone XL won’t make a difference.
Can be built without the help of the taxpayer.
Building and operating Keystone XL will result in real private-sector jobs that will grow the U.S. economy. This is very different from the president’s taxpayer-funded green jobs plan that merely siphons resources out of the market and forces pricier energy on the American publi.
The people want it. Lots of people want it.
A CNN poll in the beginning of the year found that 57 percent of Americans support the project, while just 28 percent oppose it. Many unions want it. Former Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar called the project a “win-win.” Congress sent a bill to Obama’s desk, demonstrating their will to approve the project. Sadly, the Obama administration is catering to the small group of radical environmental activists who don’t want the pipeline.
Last April, the Washington Post slammed the Obama administration’s continued delay of a Keystone XL decision, calling it “absurd” and “embarrassing.” Rejecting the permit application is even more absurd and more embarrassing.
“God is everywhere, and the goodness of God is everywhere; demons are everywhere, and the cursing of them is everywhere; the invocation of divine judgement is everywhere, death is everywhere, and the sense of death is everywhere, and all the world over is found the witness of the soul.”
Tertullian: The Soul’s Testimony, 3rd century
Our Lord showed St. Gertrude the Great that the following prayer would release a vast number of souls from Purgatory each time it is said. It would seem to be appropriate for this prayer to be remembered even more during the month of the Poor Souls.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
Judgement Day should be interesting. I’m sure we are all in for a few surprises! During the last eight years, thousands of babies were aborted with the help of our president’s pen. I can see Christ returning, flanked on either side with the baby souls that were not allowed a chance at life. And Catholics will stand there and bemoan the fact that someone like the president of the greatest country in the world, did absolutely nothing to protect life. Sad, isn’t it?
But, midst the mourning Catholics on that imagined Last Day, will be the ones who actually voted in the Culture of Death – not once but twice. Unless there was an epidemic of invincible ignorance, Catholics, at least fifty percent of them, reconfirmed their backing for the anti-life agenda with their vote. As Catholics, we represented more than one vote and more than one chance to possibly save unborn lives and only half of us took it seriously. The tears our Blessed Mother must shed for the United States of America!
It is interesting to note that there are three conditions to be met in order to commit a mortal sin. These conditions are: 1.) A grave matter; 2.) The full cooperation of your free will; 3.) Full knowledge of the seriousness of the matter. How can a Catholic rationalize voting for someone who, by his own admission, was for abortion? If you voted responsibly, you had to know this. Condoning and voting for a candidate that is for abortion, makes you an accessory after the crime . . . doesn’t it?
“But there are other issues at stake . . .” When will people wake up and realize that majority doesn’t make right? What can be more important than the moral issue of the God given right to life? In the Face of Eternity, will you be ultimately be judged on how you protected the amount of your Social Security check, your job security or your economic life style? Will it matter at that point? Will you be able to face the souls of the unborn a reckless vote murdered before their time? If we care so much for the little guy, why did fifty percent of the Catholics vote in favor of the candidate promoting the killing of the littlest of all?
How many times have you heard the tired view point that thinks that as a legal matter, it is all right to vote pro-choice? And the justification that we need to build a society where the need for abortion is reduced? And how there are so many more important issues at stake? You can’t build an honorable society with a foundation of dead pre-born. You won’t get the violence out of the world until we treat the weakest as our strength. The next presidential election is 2017. How will your vote go this time?
