There's a deep rift in the Democratic party over whether America should bring back the Glass-Steagall Act, a bank regulation that was in place from 1933 to 1999.

...when you look at the actual financial institution failures in 2008, Glass-Steagall probably wouldn't have made much, if any, difference. The first two large institutions to fail were Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, both of which only served Wall Street, not Main Street.

Who wants Glass-Steagall back: Sanders, O'Malley and Senator Elizabeth Warren

Who doesn't want Glass-Steagall back: Clinton and the Republican candidates

Something is very fishy about the convolution of the Washington Post's article vs. actual public records!!

The Post & Email:


Don't take satan's bait

Everyone is trying to make sense of all the violence across the country. These things are not new, but they seem to be getting worse. For example in a Christmas Eve Jot in 2008, I recounted the headlines of how a newlywed husband, eager to see what his wife had gotten him for Christmas, peeked inside the wrapping. The wife was so enraged that she stabbed her husband six times with a kitchen knife.  A kitchen knife was also the weapon in New Jersey where a mother slashed her six year old son's throat, then tried to commit suicide. In Detroit, a woman committed suicide after shooting her husband and family dog dead with the same gun. Today we have stories of terrorist events and murders--leading up to and through the holidays.

Fires, family fights, murders, suicides, terrorist events, drunk driving deaths, even natural deaths seem to be more prevalent during the holiday season.  People are stressed.  They are rushing about, busy with the getting of and doing things, that life itself seems to take a backstage. Then there is that one little thing-a child asking that silly question for the tenth time, or the husband coming home a tad bit late, or the wife not getting that little thing done-and "boom" everything blows up and lives are changed forever.  My household growing up was a wonderful place to be. But the only arguments I remember my parents having were during the holidays.  Some stupid thing would go wrong and not even a well-prepared Secretary of State could successfully intervene.

We lived at our farm that had been in the family for over 200 years.  And things were old and sometimes didn't work well.  They didn't work well especially during the holidays when large family and friend gatherings were about to occur.  One year, the well went dry just hours before my mother was to serve a meal to about 25 family members. She ordered a water truck to come fill the well. My dad said that the water would just run out of the well and that she just had to patiently wait for the water level to restore itself.  This led to World War III.  Mom was packing her bags and leaving this old farm house forever.  Well, my Dad's patience with her saved the day, and a little help from a quick running spring gave us the water we needed.  All was well.

But the point is that during holidays that celebrate the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ, the spiritual enemy presses in and tries to steal the joy of the season.  Jesus said in John 10:10, "The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."  Remember that satan wants to destroy anything that would honor Christ-your holidays, your home, your family, even you.  But Christ is a life giver.  He came that we might have life to its fullest measure.  So when those thoughts creep in that do not reflect the life-giving joy of Christ, cast them down before they become actions.  If you can't seem to do that, call your pastor or a friend or 911.  Don't take satan's bait.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Based on newly-discovered, secret documents from German archives, diaries and newspapers of the time, Gun Control in the Third Reich presents the definitive, yet hidden history of how the Nazi regime made use of gun control to disarm and repress its enemies and consolidate power. The countless books on the Third Reich and the Holocaust fail even to mention the laws restricting firearms ownership, which rendered political opponents and Jews defenseless. A skeptic could surmise that a better-armed populace might have made no difference, but the National Socialist regime certainly did not think so—it ruthlessly suppressed firearm ownership by disfavored groups.

Experts say while ISIS has vowed to infiltrate the refugees, there could be an even more pressing threat from the Syrians already here.

The United States has let in so many people from Syria since 2012 that counterterrorism specialists probably have no way to keep track of them all.

That report from Fox News comes during the debate over whether U.S. officials will be able to vet and properly track the 10,000 Syrian refugees President Obama has vowed to take in as civil war and ISIS savagery have caused them to flee.

The Benedict Option: Christianity In The Brave New World

For me, the real point — and the most important Benedict Option point — is found in these lines near the end of Hanby’s speech
Even if there were an abundance of tolerance and good-will, there is little indication that the brave new world which we have ushered in can accommodate a Christianity which refuses to conform to its ideal of human nature and truth. The more urgent questions is whether we can resist the enormous pressure to accommodate ourselves to this post- human ideal.
Think of it this way. It’s not hard for Christians to imagine George Orwell’s vision of totalitarianism coming to bear on their communities from a hostile state. It is much harder for Christians to recognize the threat posed by the Aldous Huxley view of dystopia — that is, a totalitarianism that is welcomed by those enslaved to it because it makes them comfortable, and because they don’t recognize it for what it is.

The Democrats’ Theme for 2016 Is Totalitarianism


For those of you keeping track, the Democrats and their allies on the left have now: voted in the Senate to repeal the First Amendment, proposed imprisoning people for holding the wrong views on global warming, sought to prohibit the showing of a film critical of Hillary Rodham Clinton, proposed banning politically unpopular academic research, demanded that funding politically unpopular organizations and causes be made a crime and that the RICO organized-crime statute be used as a weapon against targeted political groups. They have filed felony charges against a Republican governor for vetoing a piece of legislation, engaged in naked political persecutions of members of Congress, and used the IRS and the ATF as weapons against political critics.

On the college campuses, they shout down unpopular ideas or simply forbid nonconforming views from being heard there in the first place. They have declared academic freedom an “outdated concept” and have gone the full Orwell, declaring that freedom is oppressive and that they should not be expected to tolerate ideas that they do not share. They are demanding mandatory ideological indoctrination sessions for nonconforming students. They have violently assaulted students studying in libraries and assaulted student journalists documenting their activities. They have staged dozens of phony hate crimes and sexual assaults as a pretext for persecuting unpopular organizations and people.

What they cannot achieve by legislation or litigation, they seek to achieve by simple violence, left-wing activists having smashed, looted, and burned portions of Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore, where Koreans and other Asian minorities were specifically targeted. As on college campuses, they have made a point of assaulting journalists documenting their violence. They have rioted in Philadelphia and in other cities.

Ex-CIA Agent Claims Obama Had Breitbart and Clancy Killed

Posted on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 at 12:22 AM:
Doctor Jim Garrow is a philanthropist and worker for one of the largest non-profit organizations on the planet to save female children from slaughter in China.

He has been featured on several media outlets throughout the world. Last Sunday, as a guest of Now the End Begins internet radio program however, he dropped a bombshell on the world. Dr. Garrow claims that up to a week ago he was covert CIA. To top it off on the program, he states he knows that President Obama ordered the hits that killed Tom Clancy and Andrew Breitbart!

...Dr. Garrow said that it is well known to intelligence agencies all over the world that Obama is a foreign plant who was placed on the path to the presidency by ultra-rich Saudi nationals This is why, Garrow said, that all of Obama’s education records have been permanently sealed.

Where Christ Drove Demons into Sea: Archaeological Evidence Uncovered

The biblical description of the miracle is one of the most evocative in the entire Gospel. Recounted by Matthew, Mark, and Luke with different nuances, the Gospels depict Jesus in one of His most direct confrontations with Satan.

Even before 1960, Americans felt their freedom slipping away...

THE LISTENER by Taylor Caldwell (1960 pp.246-247)
It was funny. Pa worked in a machine shop. They didn’t call him Labor, then. He was a man. He wasn’t Labor. He was a person. Independent. He’d have his beer on the porch at night, and his neighbors would come and they’d talk politics and get real excited. And sometimes sweat. Who were the Presidents then? She didn’t remember. Presidents come and then they go. Nobody remembered them, except when they did some kind of harm, and then the people cursed them. But it was a kind of happy cursing. Washington was a long way off. Now it was kind of everywhere. Who wanted it? It was like something looking over your shoulder all the time and breathing down your neck. Making you hurry, hurry, hurry. “Growth.” For what? And Washington wanted your money; she had to pay out taxes on what she earned by her hard work. For what? Who wanted your money and made Washington scream for it like it was a pack of policemen? It didn’t make sense. What a person earned was always his own, earned with the sweat of his brow, like the Bible said. Now, it looked like, it wasn’t yours. It was somebody else’s. Why? Did they earn it on their knees in somebody’s kitchen or doing somebody’s laundry? No sir. They didn’t. But they wanted your money all the same, even if they hadn’t earned it themselves. She wondered what Pa would say about all this. He’d say, “The country’s gone to the dogs, for sure. And maybe we’d better roll up our sleeves and get it back for ourselves.” Yes, that’s what Pa would say. And all the men like him. They talked all the time about the Revolution and the Boston Tea Party. Maybe what the country needed was another Tea Party.

Something is rotten in the state of California.
It’s extraordinary. The vanishing of this third man recalls the disappearance of the third man who was involved in the Oklahoma Federal building bombing with Timothy McVeigh. Jayna Davis of KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City reported on an FBI alert for “Middle Eastern-looking” suspects – an alert that was later canceled.

Telling the truth: There is no quick fix, and defending America will require courage and resolve over the long term.

National Review:
Dispelling the ‘Few Extremists’ Myth – the Muslim World Is Overcome with Hate

Islam has a problem. It is Muslims’ responsibility to reform their own faith. It is America’s responsibility to defend itself and its citizens. Neither goal is advanced by telling convenient, politically correct lies. After 14 years of war, can we finally tell the truth?

Excerpts from Dr. Jack Wheeler:
“We now have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world,” claimed Zero. This was a reiteration of what he stated at a press conference in Paris the day before (12/01): “I say this every time we have one of these mass shootings, this just doesn’t happen in other countries.”

Is he out of his mind? Yes, obviously so. The question now: Is he criminally out of his mind? The follow up question: If he is, how can he be removed from office on that basis?

. . . . .

On July 16, 2015, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a “devout Moslem” and a “violent extremist” as described by the FBI, murdered four US Marines and a sailor in an attack on Chattanooga’s U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center. It was a blindingly obvious act of Moslem terrorism – yet the FBI has announced that the Moslem murderer’s motives may “never be revealed.”

This is because Zero has ordered FBI Director James Comey never to do so. I submit that this is an act of criminal insanity by the President of the United States. That and his denial of the very existence of Islamic terrorism in the first place.

His oath of office, his Constitutional obligation, and his most fundamental moral duty as President is to protect the security of Americans to the best of his ability and within his legal authority. He has overtly, consistently, resolutely and perversely refused to do so.

Planned Parenthood Killer Was a Deranged Pothead

Accuracy in Media has been virtually alone over the last several years in uncovering and publicizing evidence of a marijuana connection to several high-profile acts of crime and terrorism, including the Boston Marathon bombings. Our column, “Can Marijuana Fuel Jihad?,” looked at how the Russian terrorists in Boston were members of a marijuana smuggling ring.
