Many may remember that then Senator Barack Obama took to the campaign trail and ran in great part as the President who will finally bring everyone together. There would be no more divisions predicated upon the idea of “race” as this half Black (perhaps true African-American) and half White man would understand the plight of all and be able to find ground whereupon all would be on a level playing field. Many voted for this future President because they thought him to be the one uniquely able to unite all and that he would be the very one for the downcast, downtrodden and the broken. Many of the same voters have since had buyer’s remorse.
However this nation has not been so divided since the Civil War. Some might recall the feigned war on women fighting against those who see every human life as precious; even the unborn children. This…

As we begin our study of the prophecies we find in the Old Testament that were fulfilled by the birth of Christ, let’s ask the Lord for knowledge, understanding and wisdom. But, especially, let’s ask the Lord for God-given faith…faith in the validity and truthfulness of His Word.
You might wonder why faith is so important as we study these prophecies and their fulfillments. Well, as we progress, we are going to see that this study is based upon an assumption that God’s Word is absolutely truthful… How do we know that these prophecies were actually received years before their fulfillment? It is based upon our belief that the authors of the Old Testament are the genuine authors and the time of their writings is as described in the Word. How do we know that the fulfillments of these prophecies actually took place? It is based…

A much needed and deserved break for all.

For those wishing politics, the various votes for the Omnibus Budget Bill including the Cruz amendment with a breakdown of individual votes can be found at an earlier post:
For the past 5 decades, the town of Brookville, Indiana, a predominantly Christian town, placed the Nativity Scene on display next to the Franklin County Courthouse without incident.
For years ago something changed an atheist group in Wisconsin, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, demanded that the display be taken down.
In a move that is sure to have atheists gritting their teeth, the town of Brookville has trumped threats from atheists of a lawsuit by putting the Nativity scene on display in countless locations throughout the town.
Despite threats of a lawsuit from the FRF, the community chose to keep Christ in Christmas, putting put nativity scenes all over the town–including street corners, roofs, and the local grocery store.
‘I don’t understand why people want to take away our love of Christ from us, its his birthday, we need to celebrate that and remember that,’ resident Ron Anderson said. ‘When you start taking (rights) away we lose track of who we are as American citizens…..
For months, we have been inundated with Communist protesters shouting “Justice for Mike Brown” “Justice for Eric Garner” and “Black Lives Matter.” However, beneath the surface of those shouts and as not reported by the mainstream media are growing calls to nationalize law enforcement in America.
The proposition that turning all law enforcement over to a national government would eliminate (or even drastically reduce) police misbehavior is not borne out by either history or logic. No one can seriously disagree with the fact that in nations with nationalized police forces, the liberties of the people are severely curtailed. Totalitarians dictatorships, such as Stalin’s Russia, or Hitler’s Germany, prove the point.
After Hitler came to power in Germany, he made every effort to reduce the power of state governments, including their historical and constitutional control over the general police power. Hermann Göring first suggested to Hitler that he give all law-enforcement authority to the Gestapo (the secret state police).
On June 17, 1936, Hitler unified all police forces under the leadership of Heinrich Himmler. The Gestapo operated without judicial review…
Useful idiots seeing no further than the chants on their cheat sheets distributed by the Socialist and Communist parties are blind to the atrocities and threat to the citizenry as a result of a nationalized police force in America.
These indoctrinated sock puppets are incapable of comprehending that while local law enforcement is not perfect, its far outweighs that which they are demanding.
On August 25, 2014, Marxist elites (celebrities, Progressive organizations, academia, so-called black leaders including the Congressional Black Caucus) invoking the death of Michael Brown delivered a letter to Barack Obama demanding that he appoint a special police czar to oversee the nationalization of the police state.
‘The Administration must appoint a federal Czar,’ the letter states, ‘housed in the U.S. Department of Justice, who is specifically tasked with promoting the professionalization of local law enforcement, monitoring egregious law enforcement activities, and adjudicating suspicious actions of local law enforcement agencies that receive federal funding.’
The letter is signed by Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), and her fellow members Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Steven Horsford (D-Nev.), John Lewis (D-Ga.), Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), and Barbara Lee (D-Calif.). Also signing on to the letter are the leaders of the ACLU, several labor unions (AFL-CIO and SEIU), Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, and several dozen others….
Communist elites endorse the jackboot of a nationalized police state to crush the necks of Americans and silence political dissent because in their feeble minds, such tyranny would not apply to them.

The vitriol from some of the Common Core supporters who want to marginalize those who disagree with them has been unleashed on Facebook…maybe. I debated whether to even give this page any publicity, but parents might want to know about the newest topic of conversation in the Common Core social media circles.
The new Facebook page is entitled Parents for Common Core. It is either a parody page or a full out assault on parents in public education and the home schooling community. The vast majority of the comments have been met with either incredulity, humor or reasoning. Not one ‘parent’ has come to the defense of the pro-common core statements….
Let’s see, under Common Core, our children are dumbed down, their free spirits squashed as they are fundamentally transformed into mindless drones to be later put up for sale by the federal government to corporate oligarchs.
Every facet of our children’s lives is data mined for used at some future date to keep each child in his or her place as designated by the ruling elites.
Adding to that, parental rights are severely eroded yet the response to all whom object to this swindle is what are you hiding?
The NSA said the same thing when America’s allies and millions of Americans objected to being spied on.
Like the author of the above post, Gretchen Logue, I thought Facebook page, Parents for Common Core, was a joke at first. However, leaving nothing to chance, the odds are that this page is another Alinskyite tactic intended to ridicule opponents of Common Core.
Backfire! It only enforces the necessity to bring Common Core to its miserable end.
Last evening Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) challenged the constitutionality of the $1 trillion Cromnibus spending bill.
In so doing, Cruz has set in motion a process that for the Senate would “force the Senate to vote on whether the bill violates the Constitution because it allows President Barack Obama to implement his executive action on immigration.”
“The president has justified this illegal amnesty by saying he told Congress what he wanted, and Congress refused to give it to him,” Cruz said. ‘Well, Mr. President, the relationship in our constitutional republic between the president and the Congress is not the relationship between a parent and a child.’
‘The president does not get to demand of Congress, ‘here is the policy I want; either give me what I want, or I will decree it to be so and ignore the law,’ he said. ‘That is the president’s bargaining position.’
Cruz took to the floor Friday evening, and said Obama’s immigration action violates the Constitution and is closer to the act of a monarch than a president….
Immediately after, soon to be minority leader, Harry Reid, asked for a unanimous agreement for a Senate 5 p.m. Monday to which Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) objected.
The session resumes today at noon in the Senate.
Besides National Science Foundation (“NSF”) raking in millions of taxpayer dollars in federal grants on data mining projects from the cradle to the grave, i.e., Common Core (Core-Plus Mathematics Project) to Truthy[i] to a $799,860.00 federal grant awarded NSF to create “Affordable and Mobile Assistive Robots for Elderly.”
A nearly $800,000 project from the National Science Foundation (NSF) is pairing the University of Pennsylvania with a robot company to create the machines, which will be able to deliver glasses of water to senior citizens.
The government said that the project is necessary due to a demographic crisis in America where soon there will not be enough young people to take care of their elders….
The robot will also be tasked with making sure that seniors live and eat healthy.
According to the NSF webpage:
This Partnership For Innovation project develops and tests the use of service robots to monitor and improve health of the elderly. The growing elderly population coupled with low birth rates in the developed world is creating a crisis in healthcare. The number of senior citizens is outgrowing the number of working-age adults to care for them. In the U.S. alone, the number of seniors over age 65 is projected to double from year 2000 to 2030, reaching 71.5 million. With the scarcity of care options available, affordable robots are a welcome solution for assisting elders with small tasks that would normally be done by a caregiver. While helping elders with activities of daily living in an elder care facility, the system learns about them. It can then do things such as help ensure that they are eating or drinking healthily.
The project consists of two main parts: development of a low-cost mobile manipulator capable of a limited set of elder-relevant manipulation tasks (e.g., picking up dropped items or filling a water glass); and development of a data-driven service system that analyzes the use of the robot over time to monitor elder health via service requests and pro-actively offer assistance as needed. One key to making this system viable is maintaining effectiveness at low cost. This work builds on a commercial low-cost mobile robot platform being developed at Savioke and adds manipulation capabilities via a novel low-cost expanding prismatic joint arm under development at the University of Pennsylvania. This mobile manipulator robot will be used to perform service tasks, such as delivering water to elders. The data gathered by these robots and how elders use them in the field will provide information about how robots can help create a larger data-driven health monitoring system.
The partners at the inception of the project include University of Pennsylvania, both the School of Engineering and Applied Science as well as the School of Medicine (Philadelphia, PA) and Savioke (Sunnyvale, CA, a small business concern) along with broader context partner, “LIFE”–Living Independently For Elders (Philadelphia, PA, a non-profit organization).
“…ensure that they are eating or drinking healthily… This mobile manipulator robot will be used to perform service tasks, such as delivering water to elders.”
Impossible to buy this sell from an administration that has so little regard for the unborn, babies, the sick and elderly especially when one takes into account that the primary objectives of the government and corporations is data mining.

While the NSF webpage quotes the growing number of seniors as the rationale behind this project, it is worth noting that Barack Obama’s cuts to Medicate under Obamacare will drive nearly half of the home healthcare agencies in the United States out of business and/or into bankruptcy by 2017.
this will have a detrimental effect beyond seniors; it will also have a direct impact on taxpayers and the economy. By causing so many home health providers to close, the home health care cut will result in higher Medicare costs as many seniors are forced into more expensive institutional settings. The closures will also cause as many as 465,000 professional caregivers to lose their jobs, according to an analysis by Avalere Health.
But most important, the ObamaCare home health cut will have a direct impact on seniors and disabled Americans too.….
Barack Obama, his administration and comrades are biased against the unborn, physically impaired and elderly.
Speaking of cradle to grave data mining and going from Common Core to robotic assistance for the elderly, enter Bill Gates.

Congress passed the $1 trillion “CRomnibus” spending bill last night with a vote of 219 to 206.
Sixty-seven Republicans stood their ground voting against the massive spending bill, among them were the usual suspects, i. e., Reps. Dave Brat (R-Va.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), and Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).
At the same time, 57 Progressives voted YES in favor of the Cromnibus spending bill on its way to the Senate. See: Here Are the 67 Republicans Who Voted Against the Massive ‘CRomnibus’ Spending Bill
