Our nation WAS intended to be “one nation under God” though many today foolishly try to imply otherwise due to their lack of knowledge of our history.  

Did the founding people always follow God as they should in every aspect? Well that answer would be a big, fat, NO…but that does not diminish the fact that the intent was for our nation to be under the guidance of the Judeo-Christian God and even the simple “deitists” among the Founders postulated to that with the caveat that the government not be able to force anyone to serve or not serve said God.

THAT was the “original intent” and NOT the falsehood that is bandied about today that “separation of church and state” means that God had to be left at our front doors and had no place in our government or that people that believed could not invoke His Holy Name if they were government servants or when introducing policies or legislation or as the basis of how they would govern (as long as they did not force the people to serve their God) and history proofs my position on this. 

Having said that and/or whether or not one is in agreeable with those truths or not is NOT my point today ((so I’m not debating it since it stands on proven, historical merit) but the point is that the scripture below teaches us that if “we the people” of this country want to prosper, be protected, etc., that God BETTER be the God of our nation.

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭33:10-22‬ ‭(MSG)‬: “GOD takes the wind out of Babel pretense, he shoots down the world’s power-schemes. GOD ’s plan for the world stands up, all his designs are made to last. Blessed is the country with GOD for God; blessed are the people he’s put in his will.

From high in the skies GOD looks around, he sees all Adam’s brood. From where he sits he overlooks all us earth-dwellers. He has shaped each person in turn; now he watches everything we do.

No king succeeds with a big army alone, no warrior wins by brute strength. Horsepower is not the answer; no one gets by on muscle alone.

Watch this: God’s eye is on those who respect him, the ones who are looking for his love. He’s ready to come to their rescue in bad times; in lean times he keeps body and soul together.

We’re depending on GOD; he’s everything we need. What’s more, our hearts brim with joy since we’ve taken for our own his holy name. Love us, GOD, with all you’ve got— that’s what we’re depending on.”

I love it how all of these people who have armed bodyguards preach to the rest of us about gun control.

Hey Geraldo!!!! Hey President Obama!!!

The rest of us can’t afford personal bodyguards like you have and by the time the police get there we could already be dead.

This is why “we the people” have the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution that you hate so much.

I want and need to have as much firepower as my enemy has yet you would want me to depend on you for protection when you have shown an ineptness in protecting “us” due to your pathological ideologism to defend those whose only wish is to kill us and destroy our way of life.

You and every terrorist or enemy to this land and our freedoms must be aware that when I completed my duty in the armed forces that I never signed anything that berefeted me of my duty to protect and defend this nation….and neither did ANY of my brothers or sisters in arms …there are millions of us ready and willing to defeat our enemies and we will do it whether or not we have your cooperation or whether or not you choose to continue to pacify those that want to kill us or not.

I don’t say this out of disrespect because unlike you towards me…I respect you and will defend you though because I disagree with your political direction you obviously abhor me and those like me.

That’s okay though…I don’t need you or any of those that disagree with me to like me to defend you or them. I do it because it is the right thing to do and I do it willingly without any hesitation or mental reservation and I will until I die…this is what warriors do….which is why you don’t understand it.

I, we fight because God gives us the might, strength, and will to do so so I beseech you to put your idealism aside for,the sake of the nation and unleash the beast that is the 2nd Amendment minded American.

“For any senator who wants to study the draft TPP language, it has been made available in the basement of the Capitol, inside a secured, sound proof room. There, lawmakers surrender their cellphones and other mobile devices and sit under the watchful gaze of an official from the U.S. Trade Representative’s office while they peruse the pages. Any notes taken inside the room must be left in the room.”

Quote from the following link: http://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/05/14/406675625/a-trade-deal-read-in-secret-by-only-few-or-maybe-none

So…. There are so many of you that continue to buy the line that Democrats are the party that “fights against the rich” when I have constantly maintained that if you “follow the money” that they are no different from the establishment Republicans that you “hate” so much.

Yet, NONE of you are crowing about this secret Trans-Pacific trade agreement that the Obama administration, the “rich” corporate cronies in this countries, AND the establishment Republicans/Democrats who are owned by the “Chamber’s of Commerce/”Big Pharma”/Big Business and all of the other “Big’s” that Democrat’s CLAIM to hate (while they receive MUCH of their campaign money from…hmmm!)

Who do you think that this TPP is going to benefit?

Will it benefit “mom and pop” stores or small businesses here in the U.S.?

Will it benefit the U.S. worker and the “middle class” who the proponents of this bill claim to “fight” for every day?

Who will benefit financially in political funds/donations due to the passage of said legislation…hmmmm?

This legislation just as it was with Obamacare which was touted as “healthcare” but was really a behind the scenes campaign promise kept by President Obama to “Big Pharma” and K street is a front designed to appear that it is going to help American businesses when in reality it will, as most trade agreements that have been done in our nations history, kill American jobs and ship them overseas.

Lastly, and again…why all the secrecy?

Why doesn’t the “most transparent administration in this nation’s history” always do these “deals” in secrecy when the President promised time after time and again not only during his campaigns but also since he has been in office that we (the public) would ALWAYS be able to review any proposed legislation (this is legislation BTW) BEFORE there is a vote on it but they won’t even let congress view it OR even speak publicly about it UNLESS they agree to keep it secret…how is that transparency?

I find it quite humorous that I’m castigated as an Obama hater when all along I’ve been open and honest about my assessment of him, establishment Republicans, fake-phony conservative-pretending Republicans, and Democrats/Republicans who are communists masquerading as what we historically knew as Democrats/Republicans.

I was right about Obamacare being a financial windfall for “Big Pharma” and K Street and for proof one only has to ask the question and realize the answer that since it’s implementation the ONLY true winners in Obamacare has been “Big Pharma” and K Street as those stocks (and it’s many affiliated stocks) have continued to soar as the rest of the market with a few exceptions have remained static or have been slightly devalued (do your homework and you’ll see it’s true).

Being that I am the “Big Black” dude, I want to speak for just a second to the black community.

Hey, wake up! President Obama does NOT care about you and only uses you like the crook that uses a baby or a pregnant woman as a shield when he/she is close to being apprehended and fires at police and they return fire.

This deal will hurt minority communities most because WHEN have big corporate jobs ever been shipped overseas.

The big wigs that donate to ALL politicians are still going to have their big headquarters here in the U.S. while the jobs will go overseas due to the cheap labor which will all but finish off the dying communities that continue to support the “black” president who continues to pimp out the black community as well as the rest of this country to his K street cronies and foreign governments.

NOW we hear of the “stolen train derailment devices” COULD be a potential cause of this train derailment!

Whether found to be true or not the fact that this issue has not been spoken of is not surprising to me.

YET, all of the congressmen, from BOTH sides of the aisle I might add coming out and railing about “failing infrastructure” so that they can get more taxpayer money to mismanage and give themselves raises with and NOT use for the purpose they say they need it for.

You would think that “the most transparent administration in our nation’s history” would’ve shared with us that there was indeed a threat or at the very least shared it with congress, huh?

This possible terrorist angle has me greatly concerned but I guess it doesn’t matter because the American public has become so enamored with lying politicians that no matter what happens they believe what they say as the gospel instead of relying on their God-given right to seek honest answers from those that are supposed to be “serving” the public’s interest.

What happened to all of the stimulus money that was passed by the Democratic controlled congress and signed into law with great “pomp and circumstance” by President Obama AND also the stimulus money by the previous president George Bush and (again) the Democrat controlled congress both led by Speaker Pelosi?

According to the facts below from the ARTBA (American Road & Transportation Builders Association) the amount of money needed to address ALL of the needs of our transportation system in the FY’s 2013 – 2014 was approximately $100 billion dollars.

The stimulus passed by the people who now are crying about money needed for infrastructure was $152 billion under Bush and another $800 some-odd billion under Obama…YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT THE MONEY THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SPENT ON INFRASTRUCTURE COULDN’T BE FOUND IN THAT?

I SMH @you who are continually fooled by the lying tongues of these politicians who take every opportunity whenever a disaster happens to bilk you out of your money because they are too lazy to truly be leaders instead of doing as most responsible households have to do and live within a budget.

Below are the statistics that “proof” me from ARBA (This stuff is out there folk….you have to stop listening to “them” (the politicians) and figure out the truth yourselves:

The “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” or MAP-21 is the federal law (P.L. 112-141) that authorizes the federal government to invest in highway and public transportation improvements during federal Fiscal Years 2013 (October 1, 2012 – September 30, 2013) and 2014. Enacted by Congress in June 2012 and signed into law by President Obama on July 6, the Act provides $40.3 billion for highway investment and $10.6 billion for mass transit investment in FY 2013 and $40.9 billion for highways and $10.7 billion for transit in FY 2014. The law also made a number of important improvements to these programs, in particular setting goals and performance standards for both programs, simplifying the structure of the federal highway program, and establishing a national freight policy.

I, Ron “Big Black” Garrett. do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

This is the oath of enlistment that I and ALL of those of us enlisted take/took upon entering military service.

Please take note that BEFORE we will “obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me”, that we “swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”.

I have a natural distrust of “government” (we all should AND that is Constitutional as well AND it is what we got away from when we rebelled and separated from the British Empire)…A distrust that only got stronger as I joined the Army and realized that if someone gained too much political power AND the people in our nation fell “asleep” politically that the “force” that our military was that was supposed to be for our country’s protection could be turned against and used for evil against the very citizens that it was created to protect and defend.

However, as I continued to serve I noticed something special…Soldiers are NOT robots and many like myself took our oath seriously and literally and would NEVER follow a lawful order given by a president, congress, or officers who wanted to “take over”.

I’m sure that there would be some in our ranks who also thirst for power that would follow illegal orders under some false justification of a “greater good” BUT I assure you that in our current military AND ESPECIALLY among the vast numbers of those who are veterans that SHOULD our government go completely rogue (it’s trying and has been trying for 50 years now) that there are enough true patriots with enough tactical knowledge and bravado to utilize our Constitutional right to not only confront but if need be restore the government back to its rightful owners…”We the people”.

I wrote this today because of the numbers of rumors that are going around about a possible military takeover of some of our states and possible internment of our citizens that have spiked due to “Jade Helm” and other military exercise.

These are on my radar but the information that I can garner is that they are more in line with training for foreign combat zones utilizing cities that are in our country that have topographical properties that resemble said foreign combat zones.

Now having said that, we ALL should remain vigilant against ALL threats foreign and DOMESTIC to include our own government which does NOT make you or me unpatriotic but even moreover a better patriot because it is EVERY American citizens duty.

This is why I abhor the fact that so many non-citizens are being allowed and even encouraged by our current government (and past ones too…don’t get it “twisted”) to participate in Constitutional activities that should be reserved for citizens only because they could be foreign operatives (many are BTW) whose very reason for coming into our country is to destabilize it so that we can be either attacked from within, more easily attacked from abroad, OR “both”.

THIS is why the oath is so important and I implore every veteran, government employee (former and current), public officials (both former and current), AND ESPECIALLY every citizen to reassess their commitment to our Constitution and our nation so that the communistic influences that have invaded every level of our government can be thwarted because it is only the tenants of said Constitutional and its continual application of it by true patriots that is the only thing that is allowing the citizens of these United States of America to be and remain free.

Lastly, know that I as well as many of my brothers and sisters who often monitor the “going’s on” of our nation yet remain silent until we are needed have your back and will NOT allow our government to impose un-Constitutional martial laws or other violations that will take away the very freedoms that we have defended with our service to an often ever-growing ungrateful nation.

Again, we must remain vigilant yet we must also not allow every conspiracy theory to turn us into reactionist’s who jump into action every time we see something that we don’t fully understand. Let’s resolve to “keep’em honest” by guarding the watchtower from within and without and hold ALL who serve in our government to the laws and standards of that great, God sent document that is the Constitution of the United States of America.

I have some questions for those who sit quietly by as the President makes all of these unilateral decisions, bypasses Congress, and utilizes the power of the government as a weapon against those that disagree with him or oppose his position on certain policy.

What if every time you say something against a Republican president you were labeled as someone who “hates” or is racist or if they were a woman a feminist “hater even though you are simply disagreeing with policy that you take an issue with?

What if a Republican president came into power and all of a sudden declared by executive fiat that anyone associated with the LBGT had to jump through hoops to keep their non-profit status and that they had to stop speaking about LBGT issues in public?

What if a new Republican president came into power and decided that ANYONE who professes to be in the LBGT community had to be removed from their leadership position just as this administration is doing to members of our armed forces who openly profess a belief in Jesus Christ?

Are you going to remain silent if a Republican or Libertarian is elected and starts using executive orders to override the laws of the states that have approved Gay marriage as state law?

What if a Republican president came in and decided that the minimum wage was too high and by executive order did away with it with any debate or input from the government?

What if a Republican president decided to target organization that disagreed with his or her policies by utilizing the Justice Department to investigate them even though they have done nothing to be investigated for…and worse once the investigation is complete they continue to harass you because you are outspoken about what they are doing AND all of the money that you spend to defend yourself is coming unnecessarily out of your pockets simply because they dislike you speaking out against them.

What if a Republican president came in and passed law after law or made deal after deal without releasing details to the public before enacting them even though it was one of the most ardent points that they spoke on when running for office?

Are you going to say “let the president do what he needs to do” when he or she decides by executive order to stop enforcing laws on the books that they disagree with as President Obama has done with illegal immigration and other laws…will you remain silent?

What if a Republican president simply decided to do what President Obama’s administration has done with the IRS and started going after the NAACP, SPLC, Planned Parenthood, Green Peace, PETA, and all of the other liberal organizations because they said things about the administration or opposed their policies….hmmm….are you going to be okay with that?

What if a Republican president came in and took over your town’s police forces because they weren’t enforcing the voting laws the way that they wanted them to…would you be happy with that?

What if a Republican president utilized the EPA to punish everyone who believes in climate change like the current administration punishes those who don’t believe that it is a settled science?

What if a Republican all of a sudden decided that by executive order that they would not enforce the “Civil Rights Act” because it’s an old law that is no longer needed?

You see my friends…the tables could easily be turned and all that you keep silent about while President Obama is in office could be forced upon you and you, just like the ones who simply disagree with the president on issues should not be subjected to their government’s attempt to beat them into submission with the power of the government whose salaries they pay.

I get it, some of you have no problem with legislators creating laws that we citizens have to abide by under penalty of incarceration or heavy fines while the beaurocrats don’t…but that doesn’t mean that I have to feel that way because I STILL have a right to redress my government with my grievances under the Constitution.

These things are happening now to people who oppose ANYTHING that President Obama’s administration does but the sad thing is that far too many people are so enamored with him because he is “their man”, or because he is “black” and one of “their kind”, or because he professes a belief in Christ (yet most of what he does proves the opposite…I know what it looks like because I lived that life), or because he says that Israel is our friend (which whether you like it or not we MUST be because it is Biblical) yet he shows more favor to our enemies who state over and over again that they want to kill or destroy us (death to America) than he does to them and even more many of our OTHER allies.

It is sure lunacy to go along with allowing a president to act as if he were a king and not to PUBLICLY call him or her out when they are simply wrong. I’m not talking about differences in policy but I’m talking about when he or she abuses the power that the Constitution allows which is clearly the case AND you who hypocritically sit by silently because he’s “your boy”, or is a Democrat, or foolishly because he’s “black” (I guess no black person has EVER screwed you over, huh?)…that line of thinking is one of the things that’s wrong with our community today.

We must hold ANY administration accountable and have the courage to speak out when they do things that could later be used against us when an administration changes…and they do/will.

Are you so sure that everything that this administration is doing now is okay? Because if you say YES then you have also said YES to the same when/if someone whose policies that you don’t agree with comes into power and THAT is why not allowing these jokers to have that kind of power is important.

(Note: First of all there is no such thing as a “Black pastor”. A pastor is a pastor regardless of whatever his/her race is and is called to shepherd whomever God places in front of them EQUALLY and without regard to “color”…period! Now that we’ve got that out of the way!)

“Ye Hypocrites!” Many of these pastors that NOW decide that they want to challenge this administration (in the article found at this link: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/03/12/caap-calls-on-justices-ginsburg-and-kagan-to-recuse-themselves-from-same-sex-marriage-decision/) and the Supreme Court on same-sex marriage stood by and said nothing when people like me shouted from the rooftops when Justice Kagan was a nominee for the Supreme Court.

I was accused of being a “homophobe” because I opposed her (Justice Kagan) nomination for the courts (even though I opposed Justice Sotomayor and Justice Kennedy’s as well AND I also oppose Justice Roberts as the chief justice…I’m an equal opportunity “opposer’) because many people thought I was doing so because Justice Kagan was openly gay so THIS Christian (me) was just “hating” on a gay person.

I’m amazed at that because many of the people who at that time didn’t know me personally had no clue that among my circle of friends I have a great diversity of friends who have differing beliefs to include Muslims, Buddhists, Jewish, atheists, agnostics, AND homosexuals.

These friends know and respect my beliefs and I know and respect their right to have theirs because as a Christian and as a follower of Christ I love ALL people as God loves me and it is against my beliefs to “hate” anyone because doing so would disqualify me as a believer/follower of Jesus Christ who obviously loved the world so much that He was willing to be ransom sacrifice and die a horrible, gruesome, yet necessary death on a “tree” (the cross) due to his unmerited love, grace, and mercy so that all who would receive it could live forever with Him for all eternity (this is what I believe).

Also, I don’t tell my friends or associates how to practice their faith or non-faith but I do, when the opportunity arises, share my faith with them openly with love and amazingly I seemingly have been able to remain friends with them…how about that?

I reject the Muslim, the atheist, etc., views on faith because I am a Christian and I believe in Jesus Christ and His teachings just as the Muslim, the atheist, etc., reject mine because of their faith or non-faith but just because we disagree on faith does not mean that we cannot respect each other and live side by side in “these United States of America” in the melting pot as we allow each other to “pursue the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity” as ordained and established in the Constitution.

An easy example would be if we could go back through the prism of time and we all could watch the debates that me and my Muslim (or possibly Jewish) friends would have about eating pork.

Devout Muslims and Jews do not eat pork as a part of their religious beliefs yet I LOVE bacon and there were times in my past that we would have serious debates about eating or not eating pork according to what is written in the Quran or the Bible (never had this discussion with Jewish people) YET I never once tried to tell any of my friends that they were wrong for NOT having the freedom to eat bacon EVEN when they TRIED to tell me that I was wrong for doing so according to their faith…in the end…we simply agreed to disagree and remained friends.

So for ANYONE to try and accuse me of “hating” anyone is laughable and most that try to do this confuse my passion for the teachings of Jesus as an affront to their individual liberty but I never try to “convert” anyone…I preach..you decide…and THEN we can go have coffee (or tea if you like).

I digress. As I mentioned at the beginning of this piece many of the pastors who now oppose Justice Kagan had the opportunity to oppose her during her nomination to the court yet knowing her history of activism for the LBGT agenda they rubberstamped President Obama’s pick just as they have rubberstamped almost everything that his administration has done during his tenure as our president.

As our president often says “let me make this clear”, my opposition to Mrs. Kagan was NOT because she was gay. I BELIEVE in the Constitution and I believe that the justice who are appointed to the Supreme Court should only I opposed her nomination because she quite often made rulings that were contrary to the Constitution and her opinions were often biased towards the LBGT movement and it is my belief that a Supreme Court justice should NEVER be biased and should only consider the merits of any particular case and as I perused her history Mrs. Kagan failed time and again to follow the Constitution when ruling on cases.

If Mrs. Kagan had been Mr. Ron “Big Black” Garrett, a heterosexual, Christian male and he had ruled as she had done I would STILL have opposed the nomination because my standard, unlike these pastors, does not change…it’s all about the Constitution and wanting the justices who are appointed to the courts to follow it.

I feel so strongly about this because WHAT IF a person rose to the presidency happened to hide his true agenda and started appointing people like President Roosevelt did back in 1937 and even though he did not fully succeed in doing so he did enough damage that the court IMHO was changed forever and became a political tool for every president that has come after him.

A president could then have the court rule opposite the Constitution (as they have been doing with more and more frequency since then) until the Constitution becomes so powerless that we could end up being a “banana republic” ruled by dictators instead of the free republic that we all love.

My opposition to Justice Ginsburg is just the same because she has openly and publicly stated her stance on the issue and has also iterated that she believes the Constitution is wrong on the issue as well as indicated how she would rule on the issue WITHOUT even hearing arguments, AS WELL as her belief in limiting the “State’s” rights on the issue.

My contention is that this is a state’s rights issue that falls under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution and ANY state that the people vote on and pass the law AND since marriage has NEVER been defined in the Constitution as a “civil right” NOR has it been defined as a “right” by an amendment to the Constitution thus the federal government has no right to rule on the issue.

Now I don’t mind it if anyone tells me that they don’t agree with that truth but that person’s disagreement makes my Constitutional argument no less true.

If a person believes in same-sex marriage then it is their duty to try and change the law at the state level and IF that state’s registered voters agree that’s the route that they want to take then even if I disagreed with the decision I still have the capability to fight it every election whereas I have no recourse when the federal government usurps the power of the States AND as long as the political apparatus in said state offers an avenue for dissent, amendment, or change to said law then I support that State’s right to have THEIR citizens to “fight it out” politically.

SO…this is why I feel like these pastors are hypocritical. If they believed so strongly in what they are saying they never should’ve supported or stayed silent about Justice Kagan’s nomination to the court in the first place and/or they should’ve IMMEDIATELY (few of them said anything until now) asked for Justice Kagan and Justice Ginsburg’s recusal the FIRST time that these cases came up years ago.

Lastly, though President Obama has flip-flopped on the same-sex marriage issue a number of times he has always been a staunch defender of the LBGT agenda so this should’ve come as no surprise to any of these pastors yet they sat in their pulpits and praised most of what he has stood for knowing that as Christians our beliefs differ from what he has been pushing AND many of them went so far as to call those who were black and disagreed with the president “Uncle Tom” and those who were white and  disagreed “racist”.

There is room for the Christian and the LBGT communities to agree to disagree about our beliefs YET still have love and respect for one another yet it is often the politicians who keep us at each other’s throats to garner more political power depending which side of the political aisle that they reside.

“We the people” MUST stop allowing the politicians to do this to us and even if we have fierce disagreements learn as we use to do in this country come together and discuss our differences with mutual respect for each other’s position.

I KNOW that we can do this because as I’ve said my LBGT friends know my Biblical position yet I task any of you to find one that will tell you that I treat them any different than I treat anyone else and I further challenge you to find a single one that will tell you that I do not love them.
