I had mentioned to a group of men a few years ago at a local R&G that many churches were advocating for gun control. There were letters being sent by different church bodies to the legislature to deny the gun rights of citizens. Then I pointed out that each of them should check their church’s position on these issues because the money they send to NRA or GOA and others could be negated by the tithe they send to the very churches they attend. Do the people at your church seek to tear the sheepskins off of the wolves in our society? See Phil 3:18, “18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:”

In 2010, Froning had this to say. “Pride goes before a fall”, Proverbs 16:18. Froning, a devout Christian and avid Bible reader, might say that’s an apt description of himself heading into the 2010 CrossFit Games. A relative unknown, Froning tore through the competition and was poised to win the competition when his arms gave out during a rope climb and he fell 18 feet to the floor — and all the way to second place. With the fall, the pride was gone. “At the 2010 Games, I wanted to make my friends proud, my family proud, other people proud of me,” he says. “And I fell off the rope.”
“Froning returned to the games in 2011 with several hundred rope climbs to his credit, a reinvigorated Christian faith and “Galatians 6:14” tattooed on his chiseled torso. Froning can quote the verse word for word: “May I never boast in anything except for the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ which has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” Since then, Froning has won three times now the CrossFit Games.”
He’s a Christian and has come out on top three years in a row since his proverbial failings in 2010. He gives thanks to God and it wasn’t an easy task to accomplish this “three-peat” winning Reebok’s Crossfit Games. He has made some good money, with $275K to the winner Rich also received many other prizes and winnings.
“Knowing he had made history, the 26-year-old jumped into the stands to give his wife a hug and a kiss, stood up on the concrete ledge to wave to the fans, and then proceeded to encourage his fellow competitors who were still working on Cinco 2.”

There goes the oath. How did it read?
“On my honor, I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.”
Defining “morally straight” apart from God’s definition of sin (God’s law) is not possible.
So many liberals attack others who with standards desire to create order in our society. They, feeling offended or left out need not participate and are free to create their own failing organization. Instead, we now again increase our society’s risk. Desensitizing ourselves to sin or normalizing sin we continue down the road of putting the weak, women and children at greater risks. Many wise parents will no longer send their children to the redefined pup tents of fun camp some where for the week or weekend. Scouting will no longer be a boy to a man growth camp with principles. As you compromise on one you compromise them all.
The oath says to “obey the Scout Law”. These (twelve) laws are, “Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly , courteous, kind, oooobedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, cleeeean and rr.r..rrrr..rrrrrreverent.”
Obviously, “friendly” will now have a new twist, “obedient” doesn’t need to be in the list anymore and that last one, i.e. reverent, will be hard to accomplish when the Godly principles are compromised or even ignored.
For popularity the standards are lowered. For the mighty dollar righteousness is put aside. Funny, how much we’ll compromise for a dollar which is diminishing just as fast if not faster that your society morals.
So long BS of A.

So, what’s the matter with this plan?
The following are my suggestions on how to have the illegals voluntarily exit U.S. and go through OUR correct processes. There needs to be a deterrent for crossing the borders illegally.
I. Secure our borders, it is the job of our President to do this, it is a national security issue. (We need to stop the hemorrhaging at the borders first)
II. It thing to do is to deter and cycle the illegal immigrants (of ANY originating country) via putting into affect the following three and four year plans. These plans will seek to encourage all illegal aliens to return to their own country of origin via their own means and schedule.
A. Government shall require businesses to report illegal aliens workers or be sanctioned with heavy fines when discovered employing same.
1. Make the fines stiff enough that no businesses want to be made the example.
B. Businesses shall replace their illegal alien workers before a kind three year “grace period” begining from discovery date has expired.
1. Illegal aliens returning (to their own country) sooner than three years (2016) will have a priority given to their request to get back into the USA but the legal process must be followed!
a. They would be given a border crossing “coupon” or “permit” prior to leaving giving them a accelerated process.
2. Denying access to medical and other government programs currently being used by illegal aliens will make this happen sooner. (see below)
C. Businesses must “let go” their illegal alien workers before a three year grace period is up. (Heavy fines/sanctions otherwise “when discovered”)
1. If the illegal aliens do not return to their country and register within the four years of this program then they will will not be allowed to enter back into the USA.
a. When found and they have not obeyed the process then they along with any minor aged children shall be deported.
2. Unlike the three year plan “no priority” will be given to their legal request to get back into USA because they didn’t return within the three year requirement.
a. If they delayed exiting for four years or more then the U.S. classifies them as outlaws and are forever registered to be banned from entering this country.
D. One year after implementation of the law government schools will not be allowed to school any illegal alien’s children.
E. The day this law goes into affect there should be an incentive by the denying of access of all government social welfare programs.
1. No free current medical programs without proof of citizenship.
2. No welfare hand outs such as food stamps without proof of citizenship.
3. No access to any government sponsored social programs without proof of citizenship.
a. Charity for the illegal aliens will have to come from private or church sponsored programs.
1.) The private charities, i.e. churches, are not prohibited from administering to illegal alien needs.
b. No more free hand outs from the backs of the U.S. working citizens.
III. All adult (18 years old and up) “illegal” aliens will not have any access to voting rights after requesting to reenter USA.
A. They have behaved unlawful and sought to deceive our government, and break our laws, i.e. they have “decided to be” law breakers!
B. They have left their country of origin which they should strive to make better.
C. There are other means without voting by which they may support any favored candidate, if so desired.
D. This adds another deterrent for immigrants seeking to continue to jump our borders. Anyone caught jumping shall “never” be able to vote or hold public office in the U.S.
E. Alien children under age of 18 may seek the right to vote after five years of being citizens of USA and are of required U.S voting age.
1. This would delay any kind of immediate political pandering to any major influx of immigrants by politicians.
2. This helps prevent any political Trojan horses.
3. This allows those with future voting rights to be assimilated and become familiar with rights as true U.S. citizens prior to voting.
4. This also allows new legal citizen time to monitor the political stage for understanding and prevents pandering from officials prior to voting.
5. Allows time for the children to embrace and understand the freedoms of this country and how to protect them.
E. You are required to speak English prior to becoming a “citizen” of the USA!
F. There are to be no bilingual government programs to accommodate non-English speaking immigrants.
1. No schools will require bilingual programs.
2. No voting booths will require non-English ballots.
G. No IMMIGRANT may become President. (Oh, this is already a law, good. Sorry Arnold, you may not register as a presidential candidate! )
IV. NO AMNESTY!
V. No “anchor babies” automatically becoming U.S. citizens.
A. Any child of a non-citizen being born within the borders of the United States retains the nationality of the rest of their family.
1. If both parents are non citizens the child is then considered “visiting” also.
2. The child is under the headship of the family and so it follows then whatever nation the family is a citizen of, then their child is a citizen of that same nation.
Of course the major problem goes back to when we establish the free hand outs. If we didn’t have a socialistic government redistributing the wealth then we wouldn’t have to be screening the illegal aliens from receiving them. Again, chaos breeds more chaos. The current laws are un-Godly and so is it any wonder why we have these types of problems now? Government schools and government charity do not work. Man’s laws contrary to God’s established order is chaos. Man is trying to be “god” by establishing the state powers over the people. Marriages, charity, schools, medicine, here we go down the road to serfdom.
Charity and schooling responsibilities belong to the family and church governments. NOT THE CIVIL GOVERNMENT!
Have a Blessed day!

I love it when I have a sheriff to the east of me and one to the north supporting the right to bare arms. I’ll have to check the important one who works in my county.
Here’s a pointer to Sheriff Dale Schmidt taking a stand against those who think they are our kings rather than a humble employee of We the People.
His article is titled “Protecting the Constitution”.
It is a must read.

I had really no hope in this election since watching the end of a long primary process. By process I’m referring to many entities involved such as RP, DP, the media, the caucuses and the types of people involved in all of these.
I have no hope in the electorate as is. We The People of this once great and prosperous country behaved with deception and obliquation to achieve positions of power. To me it was blatant, flagrant and too common for there to be integrity in the selected candidate’s claim to power. The victor’s followers appeared as a rancorous mob as they mocked those, even in the same party, who sought fairness in the process. It reminded me of the attitudes of the people who lived in Vanity Fair as depicted in the book Pilgrim’s Progress. The people were filled with hatred, no idea of justice, no compassion for those who sought after proper order and fairness in our electoral process. The care for the fellow citizen or dare I say brother or sister who has been wronged or oppressed has fallen from our society. Where has that attitude of disdain of tyrants gone? Where is that desire of right and freedom?
If we do not return to what is virtuous, we will all become a nation of people with hearts filled with ressentiment (no I didn’t misspell resentment). The nation will not survive with this in the heart.
For America, I’ve always preferred the idea of reformation of the hearts and behavior rather than the violent revolution of a government. The minds of the people will not be changed without first changing their hearts. This begins at home with the Father teaching the children, Father does mean author. What are you planning for your spouse and children? We have a generation of freedom haters. Let us recover by writing better ideas in the hearts of our next generation. This is how freedom is handed down. Freedom can’t be sprayed on, rubbed into the skin, or hung on the body it has to be taught and planted in the heart and mind. True freedom doesn’t come without Christ in the heart. The last few generations have failed at this for many reasons.
For those of us who loved the Republican, or Democrat candidates…
“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” – Samuel Adams
For those of us here who deny that God and a saving faith in Christ is needed in the hearts of a people, “Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.” – Benjamin Franklin
Have a blessed day.

A Word About The Elections by Chuck Baldwin
With the 2012 Presidential election just a few days away, it is almost superfluous for me to engage in any kind of in depth discussion, as most people cannot, for the life of them, get past the political theater that is currently crescendoing to a climax. Therefore, I will simply provide readers with a few passing thoughts regarding the elections next week.
I think Mitt Romney will somewhat comfortably win the Presidential election. This will cause “conservatives,” Christians, and most Republicans to go into a state of deep hibernation, which will allow Romney to wreak havoc upon the Constitution and liberties of the people. In 2012, Barack Obama is the “Boogeyman” that must defeated at all costs. But the fact is, with the exception of Romney’s more business-friendly approach to economics, the differences between Obama and Romney are negligible.
As I have noted in previous columns, the differences between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are miniscule on virtually every salient issue. They both supported TARP; they both supported Obama’s economic stimulus package; they both supported so-called assault weapons bans and other gun control measures; Obama has an “F” rating from Gun Owners of America, while Romney has a “D-” rating from GOA; neither man supports a balanced budget; neither man opposes foreign aid; they both supported the bailout of the auto industry; they both have a track record of being big spenders; they both fully support the Federal Reserve; they both oppose a full audit of the Fed; they are both supporters of universal health care; both men are showered with campaign contributions from Wall Street; neither of them wants to eliminate the IRS or the direct income tax; both men are on record as saying the TSA is doing a “great job”; they both supported the NDAA, including the indefinite detention of American citizens without due process of law; they both supported the renewal of the Patriot Act; they both believe that the President has “executive power” to assassinate and kill; both support the “free trade” agenda of the global elite; they are both soft on illegal immigration; they both support NAFTA and CAFTA; they both have a history of appointing liberal judges; they both believe the President has the authority to take the nation to war without the approval of Congress; and neither of them has any qualms about running up more public debt to the already gargantuan debt of 16 trillion dollars.
Judge Andrew Napolitano nailed it when he said, “Barack Obama loves Big Labor; Mitt Romney loves Big Business; but they both love Big Government.”
Steve Baldwin (no relation) agrees. Steve is a former California State legislator and former Executive Director of the Council for National Policy. He said:
“As someone who was asked by one of the presidential candidates to investigate Romney’s gubernatorial record, I can assure you there is little in Romney’s background to suggest he will be a Reagan-type president willing to undertake bold action to save our economy and restore our culture. I know every bill he signed and every statement he made as Governor. I know who his appointees were and the liberal vision that governed his actions. As Massachusetts Governor, he sided with the big government types in every crisis he faced. Indeed, he repeatedly sold out constitutional rights–freedom of religion, the 2nd amendment, etc., every time he had the opportunity to do so.
“He raised taxes on the private sector, destroyed job creation when he implemented RomneyCare, and came out in support of amnesty for illegal aliens. Most of his judicial appointees were to the left of Obama’s two appointments to the Supreme Court. As governor, he led the country in advancing three of the left’s most sacred issues: Cap and Trade, socialized medicine and gay marriage. Romney even supported Obama’s bailouts and the useless $8 billion stimulus. And he’s hostile to the notion of engaging in serious budget cuts, telling one reporter, ‘I’m not going to cut $1 trillion in the first year.’
“Let’s not also forget that Romney’s advisors actually met with Obama’s advisors on a dozen occasions to assist them with designing ObamaCare! It’s no surprise that Romney is refusing to call ObamaCare a tax, even though it’s the largest middle class tax hike in American history. The reason for this is because, while governor, his RomneyCare plan–the model for ObamaCare–was attacked as a tax and he argued it wasn’t.
“In other words, ObamaCare has been taken off the table as a campaign issue because Romney is afraid of being portrayed as a hypocrite for his past statements on this issue. This is reason number 167 why Romney should never have become our nominee.
“I don’t care how his campaign portrays him today, his record as Governor is far more indicative of how he will govern than his campaign sound bites. If you’re not familiar with what I am disclosing about Romney, it’s because the truth about Romney was kept from Republican voters. Yes, the conservative movement sold out to Romney. Starting in 2004, Romney created a slew of PACS and foundations that funneled thousands of dollars to hundreds of conservative groups, think tanks, grass roots leaders and GOP entities.
“In return, many of these entities that normally would have attacked Romney during the presidential primary went silent or even promoted him. I’ve tracked all of Romney contributions to conservative and GOP groups and it’s disgusting. It means that the leadership of our own conservative movement is up for the highest bidder and cannot be trusted to do the right thing. Even National Review, the nation’s leading conservative publication, took money from Romney and for the last six years blocked all articles critical of Romney. Instead, they published a slew of articles portraying him to be a conservative superstar. It was all phony and I can prove it.”
Even though Romney will promote at least 85% of the Obama agenda, conservatives have no fear or trepidation of Romney because he is a Republican, whereas Obama scares the pants off of them because he is a Democrat. Ah, don’t you just love partisan politics?
Therefore, as I said, absent massive vote-fraud, Romney will be our next President. But he will do NOTHING to stem the tide of coming disaster. Romney will be a military hawk of the highest order. And while corporations doing business with the military-industrial complex will reap huge profits, America’s continued foreign interventionism is going to bring us to the brink of World War III. Furthermore, it is the “we are at war” mantra that is used to justify a burgeoning police state in America, which Romney will enthusiastically continue to implement. And unlike the Democrat Barack Obama, the Republican Mitt Romney will have little resistance–except from a Democrat-controlled Senate.
Republicans will maintain control of the House of Representatives, which is probably a good thing; Democrats will probably control the Senate. Between the two, I had much rather have Republicans control the House, because trying to find honest-to-God freedomists among Republican US senators (you could count them on two hands) is like trying to find hen’s teeth. Again, Romney isn’t going to appoint freedomist judges anyway, so that argument is moot. But if the first six years of this century proved anything, it proved that neither major party in Washington, D.C., can be trusted with control of both chambers of Congress and the White House. That is a recipe for disaster!
At this point, I must remind readers that the reason Barack Obama was elected to begin with was due to the eight years of the phony-conservative G.W. Bush administrations. Americans were disillusioned and angry over Bush’s huge spending habits at home and his military adventurism overseas. I predict a Mitt Romney presidency will have the same effect. As with G. W. Bush, Mitt Romney will disappoint and anger the American electorate, which will pave the way for another leftist (Hillary Clinton?) to prevail in 2016.
“And the beat goes on.”
At some point–maybe toward the end of Romney’s first term–the chickens are going to come home to roost. Neither major party has the guts to do what it takes to put America on a solid financial footing. They are both beholden to too many parasites that are sucking the life’s blood out of our country. And neither party will do a darn thing to stop this fascination with empire that is putting our troops in killing fields all over the world. The result: it’s only a matter of time before the inevitable happens. And just about anybody with half a brain knows it!
It would be nice if a few states would elect freedomist governors, attorney generals, sheriffs, legislators, senators, secretaries of State, etc., next Tuesday. At the end of the day, freedom is going to be won or lost at the State level anyway. My son, Tim Baldwin, is running for a Montana House seat. Here is his website:
I know of a handful of other freedomists in Montana and around the country who, if elected, could make a real difference in their respective states. We’ll see.
So, if it makes you feel better, vote for Mitt Romney. He’s probably going to win anyway–but it won’t matter! But, by all means, when you find a for-real freedomist to vote for in the other races, be sure you do that, because that WILL matter!

My first awareness of this word was during a sermon a couple decades ago. I then read about it in a book, “Idols for Destruction”, by Herbert Schlossberg.
The book’s partial description is as follows…” The twisted path from humanism’s soaring tributes in honor of the human divinity to the consequences of modern humanitarianism is best explained by the concept of ressentiment. When Nietzsche wrote his celebrated attack on Christianity, he transliterated this word from the French because he could find no German equivalent. Max Scheler, a German sociologist, built on and corrected Nietzsche’s work and again used the French word. When Scheler’s book was translated into English the same practice was followed, because “resentment” is too weak to convey the meaning he intended. Ressentiment begins with perceived injury that may have a basis in fact, but more often is occasioned by envy for the possessions or the qualities possessed by another person…….the result is hatred and the impulse to spite and to say things that detract from the others worth. (I’m thinking of a current POTUS who does this, Obama. – My comment added) Vengeance is the principle manifestation of ressentiment. It’s not the same as mere envy or resentment because it is not content to suffer quietly but as a festering quality that seeks outlet in doing harm to its object. Ressentiment has its origin in the tendency to make comparisons between the attributes of another and one’s own attributes: wealth, possessions, appearance, intelligence, personality, friends, children. Ressentitment “whispers continually” the other’s very existence is a reproach.”
“With this many of that which seems senseless crimes to us are explained. Ressentiment values its own welfare “less than” it does the debasement or harm of its object.”
Again, senseless crimes of vandalism, brutality, and murder could be explained in that way. I’ll add senseless political views which use the civil government to plunder, injure or destroy.
Ressentiment could also explain the political climate of America today. Many are out in the street protesting for movements which will simply destroy America. One example is the Wisconsin governor race and recall these last couple years. The political and public union leaders such as Obama, Trumka along with their close followers have really revealed their envy, resentment and even ressentiment with their words, behaviors. Their court, protesting, boycotting and political strategies seek to undermine our freedoms, political fairness, promote political money laundering, redistribution of wealth from tax payers to public union bosses, i.e. Trumka and teachers. Obama seems to be a leader in blowing on the flames of envy and resentment with his divisional tactics, the list goes on. These types of thoughts or views begin with envy or resentment and has carried itself further to action described as ressentiment.
There are many other excellent topics in this book. You should check it out at the library possibly. ISBN 0-8407-5828-2. Paper back is 0-8407-5832-4. Copyright 1983.
The bible warns us about the root causes of this…..”A sound heart is life to the body, But envy is rottenness to the bones.” – Proverbs 14:30
Trying to add this to any table side discussion and one may just stir up a bit of ……. ressentiment.
This is to be remembered also, “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. I Corinthians 13:4-8
Have a blessed day.
