Goats, not Scapegoats – Jesus on Jews (and Gentiles) who reject him as Messiah (Savior)

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:43-48).

Why would any group wish for America to become another Egypt?

Why would any group wish for America to become another Egypt? Or for Washington, DC’s Freedom Plaza to become “our Tahrir Square”? Have we been paying attention to what’s happened in Egypt and Tahrir Square? What’s happened has been violence, riots, and killings, which have resulted in the Egyptian people’s having gotten a military dictatorship. Why would any group do this? To create a violent revolution that will overthrow our current government and “usher in” a new and “better” government:

We need a Christ today who will make cords and drive the buyers and sellers from our new temples…

If He is what He claimed to be, a Savior, a Redeemer, then we have a virile Christ and a leader worth following in these terrible times; One Who will step into the breach of death, crushing sin, gloom and despair; a leader to Whom we can make totalitarian sacrifice without losing, but gaining freedom, and Whom we can love even unto death.

October2011.org News: The 99% versus the 1%; Time to take on the Super Comitteeee

Now is the time to join us in Freedom Plaza if you are able. Our excellent winterization team is busily building structures with heating to house us for the winter. We would like to thank Jackson Browne for donating 3 bike generators to power the heaters. We are looking for bikes to run them. And we continue to need donations for construction materials. We are planning to stay and build towards the National Occupation of Washington, DC (NOW DC) in the Spring. Look for more information soon on theupcoming OccupyBusTour. Spread the word!

Fake Democracy Revolutions – CANVAS, USIP/ICNC, Washington, Egypt, and OWS – Plus: Israel did 9/11

The same non-violence non-profits who take CIA money when they can get it (I’m not talking about ICNC, which just shares an accountant, has parallel goals, and whose president used to work there; ICNC has enough junk bond money to operate on its own) also give non-violent communication trainings and are inserting themselves wherever they can in the OWS movement. In DC, this is particularly worrisome, since the think-tank/lobbying/pro-USG logic is so hegemonic. And I’ve received four email invitations this week to attend think tank and right-wing academic seminars on What the Occupy Wall Street Movement Means and Why it Should Matter to Me. Framing is everything. Who gets to speak, what they get to say, whether their whole movement can be invalidated because somebody got justifiably angry and threw a rock. We don’t need to be tackling the rock-thrower. People throwing rocks doesn’t explain or justify the police violence I saw and felt in Oakland last Tuesday. We need to be tackling the derivative Christian logic of non-violence (but lacking the possibilities of liberation theology) that chastises the oppressed for rising up against the oppressor, using fictitious narratives about Egypt’s and Eastern European countries’ “revolutions” as legitimation. And when people come to town claiming to speak for a revolution and making their way into lefty media with the same bland lies, we need to be asking who is paying for their plane ticket, and why the hell are they not back at home, where their “revolution” is not in great shape at all.” ~ Professor Adrienne Pine – American University, Washington, DC Continue reading

The socialist smashing of the American political system

Let there be no mistake. The Occupy Movement is dangerous. The protesters are the shock troops of elitists behind the scenes who are manipulating these (mostly) young people, because they are easily organized and manipulated. The nefarious purpose? To increase the power of the military-security state. Far Left groups have long been organized, frustrated, and seeking new (young) members, which these elitists are now exploiting for their own purposes (i.e. increasing their hold on power). Continue reading

Lawyer Edgar Steele Framed by FBI Sentenced to Serve 50 Years

With the deck totally stacked against me, I feel like a drowning man, going down for the third time. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so I have just unleashed the “Hail Mary” of all legal maneuvers. This past week, I filed a Petition for Writ with the U.S. Supreme Court, highest court in America. U.S. Supreme Court Writ petitions almost never are granted, I was taught over 30 years ago in law school. I recall the image conjured by my law professor then, of a mail-room clerk stamping “Rejected” on all the just-opened envelopes holding Writ petitions. What else can I do? Continue reading
