Happy Independence Day Weekend!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
- The Declaration of Independence

These truths are self-evident “since what may be known about God [the Creator] is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
- Romans 1:19-20

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
- The Declaration of Independence

“I desire to bless and praise the name of God most high for appointing me my birth in a land of Gospel Light where the glorious tidings of a Savior and of pardon and salvation through Him have been continually sounding in mine ears.”
- Robert Treat Paine, Military Chaplain; Signer of the Declaration of Independence.

Iranian Supreme Court upholds death sentence of Pastor Youcef

Pray! Iranian Supreme Court upholds death sentence of Pastor Youcef

Youcef Nadarkhani, a 34-year-old pastor from Rasht, about 750 miles northwest of Tehran, was arrested in October 2009 after he protested a government policy that required children, including his 8- and 9-year-old sons, to study the Quran in school. Youcef told school officials that the Iranian constitution allows for freedom of religious practice. As a result of his protest, secret police called him before a political tribunal and arrested him for protesting. The charges were later amended to apostasy and evangelism of Muslims. Youcef was tried on Sept. 21–22, 2010 by the 1st Court of the Revolutionary Tribunal and sentenced to death on Nov. 13 for apostasy...

Death Sentence Upheld
The Iranian Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of Pastor Youcef. He has been in prison since October 2009, and the appeal of his death sentence was rejected by the Iranian Supreme Court on June 28, 2011. He is to be executed by hanging. If the death sentence is carried out, it will be the first court-ordered execution of a Christian in Iran in 20 years.

Riots Across America for Memorial Day (Updated!)

"Big Media have ignored this disturbing trend, as has the Washington political establishment."

I didn't hear about this on the news...

"I urge President Obama to speak up. He needs to remind urban youth that while other young Americans are risking their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is unacceptable for thugs here to spread terror in our cities."

Urban Chaos

I didn't comment on this yesterday because I wanted to gather more information, but I was stunned by many of the headlines I read in the past 24 to 48 hours. On the day of remembrance set aside to commemorate the sacrifice of so many U.S. veterans throughout our history, many American cities were the scenes of mob violence.

Riots broke out on the beaches of Long Island, New York, Carson Beach in South Boston, Massachusetts, Miami, Florida, and Charlotte, North Carolina, among other places. In each case, large urban crowds, drunken mobs and gangs engaged in random violence.

The riots come after months of "flash mobs" trashing businesses and terrorizing shoppers and pedestrians in Washington, D.C., New York and other big cities.

Many of these mobs have been comprised of minority youth and their victims have been women, children and the elderly of all races. Big Media have ignored this disturbing trend, as has the Washington political establishment.

The president of hope and change has turned a blind eye to this urban chaos. I urge President Obama to speak up. He needs to remind urban youth that while other young Americans are risking their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is unacceptable for thugs here to spread terror in our cities.
End of Day -- 6/1/2011 From: Gary Bauer

Chicago Police News Affairs released a statement saying they had to close the beach for safety reasons, as people were suffering heat exhaustion and emergency vehicles couldn't get through to help. But, WLS listeners say there was what they called a "large gangbanger element" at the Oak Street and North Avenue beaches.
"Why was North Avenue Beach really closed?"

[New! Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Supt. Garry McCarthy Caught in the LIE!]

... a collection of 911 tapes obtained Thursday by WLS Radio from the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC), seem to corroborate listener reports.

Emergency dispatchers handled at least five separate calls from beachgoers reporting violent acts on both North Avenue Beach and Oak Street Beach.

During one call, a woman tells an emergency responder that a fight had broken out on North Avenue Beach where she noticed minimal police presence.

"Yes, there's a fight breaking out on the beach because there's nothing but animals covering this beach today," the woman says. "I mean, you can't even walk along the bike path or ride along the bike path. There's no crowd control. What the hell is going on?"

A 911 caller who was at the Oak Street Beach food and concessions stand said, “We have a couple of gentlemen who are threatening to shoot us, threatening to whip our a**, trying to take our own equipment.” ...

In the days and weeks following the closure, Chicago's Gold Coast and Streeterville neighborhoods experienced an outbreak of mob violence by large groups of teenagers, preying on people as old as 68-years-old.

911 tapes from lakefront paint different picture of beach closing

[Let's deny and ignore the cancer, maybe it will go away by itself!]

A Chicago woman who played witness to a beach melee on Memorial Day weekend wants Chicago police and officials to come clean about what happened along the lakefront in May.

City officials said they closed North Avenue Beach on May 30 because of excessive heat, but Amy Schwartz says no one is talking about the excessive violence that prompted her to call 911 that day...

"They were being rude and abusive and throwing trash around and defecating," Schwartz said. "The crowd became very animated. They were cheering on the beating and more people joined in, so I kept walking forward. I was afraid I could be next." ...

Flag Day - 2011

I pledge allegiance to the flag
When we recite the Pledge, we are promising to be faithful to the ideals of our country.

Of the United States of America
The flag symbolizes our fifty states joined in a common bond to fulfill those ideals.

And the Republic for which it stands,
We elect representatives who govern for a time and are accountable to us for the job they do.

One Nation under God,
Our founders understood that the government does not give us our freedom. Our freedom ultimately comes from God, and our government was established to secure that God-given freedom.

We pledge ourselves to stay together as a country, even when we disagree.

With liberty and justice for all.
We commit ourselves to such liberties as the freedom to worship, freedom to assemble, and freedom to speak. We also commit ourselves to justice which means being fair and right in our judgment of people.

Ill. Civil Unions Law - Faith Based Foster and Adoption Services Closing

Ill. Civil Unions Law Forces Catholic Charities Out of Foster Care, Adoption

"For more than 100 years, Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Rockford, Ill. has been caring for orphaned children. Much of their work came to an end on Wednesday when the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Unions Act took effect. . .

He went on to say, 'While we understand leaving this work will be very painful for our client families, employees, volunteers, donors and prayerful supporters, we can no longer contract with the State of Illinois whose laws would force us to participate in activity offensive to the moral teachings of the church – teachings which compel us to do this work in the first place.'"
