Where Are the "Lost 10 Tribes" Today?

An interesting article from http://www.ucg.org/ about the "Lost 10 Tribes." This follows this post about Political Correctness. This follows this post about Iran. This follows this post about Zika.

We need to realize that Israel today includes far more territory than just this tiny modern Middle Eastern nation. Most people associate the name Israel with the Jewish state of that name. However, the Jewish people are descendants of primarily two of the 12 tribes that made up ancient Israel—Judah and Benjamin, along with a considerable portion of the priestly tribe of Levi.
After the reign of King Solomon, God caused the kingdom of Israel to divide into two separate nations because of Solomon's sins. The northern 10 tribes retained the name of Israel while the southern portion with its two tribes was called the kingdom of Judah. The word Jew is merely a shortened form of Judah. The first time the word Jews appear in the King James Version of the Bible, in 2 Kings 16:5-6, the northern nation of Israel is actually at war with the Jews! So clearly they are not one and the same people.
After the time of Solomon, these two nations became two politically distinct geographical entities. The Jews are part of the Israelites descended from the patriarch Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel. But he had other sons, and the descendants of 10 of them formed the northern nation of Israel, including the descendants of the patriarch Joseph.
Joseph had two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. In due time their descendants became two great modern nations, one with an empire that stretched around the world. Joseph's descendants became the easiest to identify in contemporary history because the prophetic blessings they were to receive stand out so distinctly (see Genesis 49:22-26 and Deuteronomy 33:13-17).
The intriguing story of how the modern descendants of the patriarch Joseph eventually became Great Britain and the United States of America is told in our free Bible study aid The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy . Much of God's prophetic plan cannot really be understood without the national identifications carefully laid out in this publication.
Both Great Britain and the United States played major roles, one following the other, in the restoration (after nearly 2,000 years) of the Jewish people to nationhood in the Middle East in 1948. The Balfour Declaration in Britain (1917) was followed by U.S. President Harry Truman's crucial political backing in the late 40s. The destinies of all three nations—biblically known as Judah, Ephraim and Manasseh—are intertwined and will be a big part of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy at the time of the end, albeit in different ways.

Tale Of Two Speeches: Brave (And Honorable) Trump! B-o-r-i-n-g, Paranoid Clinton


 VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow writes:
A very important speech was given today—by Donald J. Trump, in Manchester New Hampshire. It continued his recent pattern (here, here) of powerful calls for patriotic immigration reform:
For decades, the American people have demanded that their immigration laws be enforced and that their jobs be protected from out-of-control immigration. But the special interests, who only want cheap labor, have stopped it from happening.
(That means you, Bush clan).
But it also contained a dramatic defense of Americans’ right to discuss immigration and crime, anticipating Hillary Clinton’s attempt to shout down such discussion by screaming RACIST!!!!
Trump said [VDARE.links]:
Voters are used to the old game where failed politicians like Hillary Clinton falsely smear Republicans with charges of racism. Republicans then back down. Democrats then continue to push policies that are devastating to communities of color.
We must break this corrupt cycle. And we are going to break it beginning today.
So let me make some very clear statements before this whole country.
First, on the border. People who want their laws enforced and respected, and who want their border secured, are not racists. They are patriotic Americans of all backgrounds who want their jobs protected and their country kept safe.
I will never apologize for pledging to enforce and uphold every single law of the United States, and to make my immigration priority defending and protecting American citizens above every other single consideration. We will end illegal immigration and we will restore the Constitutional rule of law.
Trump continued:
People who speak out against Radical Islam, and who warn about refugees, are not Islamophobes. They are decent American citizens who want to uphold our values as a tolerant society, and who want to keep the terrorists out of our country. If the choice is between saving lives—or appeasing politically-correct censors in Washington D.C., that is the easiest choice I will ever have to make. I will always choose saving American lives.
Now, on crime. People who support the police, and who want crime reduced, are not prejudiced. They are concerned and loving citizens whose hearts break every time an innocent child is lost to preventable violence.
There is no compassion in tolerating crime, and poisonous drug dealing, and the killings in our streets. I will work to dismantle the criminal gangs and cartels and to liberate our poorest citizens from crime and violence and poverty and fear.
Honorably, Trump didn’t even stoop to “disavow” the Alt Right, with which Clinton bizarrely attempting to smear him, although he could quite reasonably have said he’s never heard of any of us, which we all think is probably the case. His only allusion was this:
To Hillary Clinton, and to her donors and advisors, pushing her to spread her smears and her lies about decent people, I have three words. I want you to hear these words, and remember these words: Shame On You.
Needless to say, Romney, McCain, almost any other modern Republican, would have run away.
Transcript: Hillary Clinton’s full remarks in Reno, Nevada
Everywhere I go, people tell me how concerned they are by the divisive rhetoric coming from my opponent in this election.
[Are any cities burning because of Trump’s rhetoric, the way they are because of Obama’s—and Hillary’s—support for Black Lives Matter?]
It’s like nothing we’ve heard before from a nominee for President of the United States.
[That’s what they said about Goldwater. And Reagan.]
From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia.
[That’s what Hillary is doing, actually. Steve Sailer has described hatred of whites as the KKKKrazy Glue that holds the Democratic Party together, and points out that it has already led to violence against Trump. Have violent white Trumpian mobs shut down Hillary rallies, like violent minority Hillary-supporting mobs have done to Trump rallies?]
He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties.
[Calling something a hate group is not an argument—people like us and Jared Taylor aren’t so much “hate groups” as hated groups.]
His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.
In just the past week, under the guise of “outreach” to African Americans, Trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in insulting and ignorant terms:
“Poverty. Rejection. Horrible education. No housing. No homes. No ownership.
Crime at levels nobody has seen… Right now, you walk down the street, you get shot.”
Those are his words.
[They’re also the words of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and George W. Bush, all of whom have protested low home ownership and bad education for African Americans. Bush actually did things to “fix” them—The No Child Left Behind Act, and a Minority Mortgage Promotion scheme. These were stupid things to do—the first ignores a law of nature, the second crashed the world economy—but no one tried to say the conditions didn’t exist. A headline on Drudge: White House struggles to explain how blacks are better off… Headline from VDARE.com: National Data | Trump Is On To Something—Blacks HAVE Lost Ground in Obama’s Economy].
Donald Trump misses so much.
He doesn’t see the success of black leaders in every field…
The vibrancy of black-owned businesses…Or the strength of the black church… He doesn’t see the excellence of Historically Black Colleges And Universities or the pride of black parents watching their children thrive…And he certainly doesn’t have any solutions to take on the reality of systemic racism and create more equity and opportunity in communities of color.
[Pious baloney. To take only one example, “historically” Black Colleges And Universities aren’t that excellent.  From an article on Myths About Attending A Historically Black College: “Because HBCUs have lower admissions standards and costs than many of the competitive and highly competitive institutions, they must be lesser quality institutions” and “HBCUs are party schools“. Guess what? Those aren’t myths.]
…Maya Angelou once said: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”
Well, throughout his career and this campaign, Donald Trump has shown us exactly who he is. We should believe him.
When Trump was getting his start in business, he was sued by the Justice Department for refusing to rent apartments to black and Latino tenants.
Their applications would be marked with a “C”—“C” for “colored”—and then rejected.
[She’s referring to a  1973 DOJ lawsuit against Donald Trump. His defence, from  The Art of The Deal: “The idea of settling drove me crazy. What we didn’t do was rent to welfare cases, white or black. I’d rather fight than fold, because as soon as you fold once, you get the reputation of being a folder.” (Inside the government’s racial bias case against Donald Trump’s company, and how he fought it, by Michael Kranish and Robert O’Harrow Jr., WaPo, January 23,2016 ) Its appearance in the papers is an example of how the media is on the side of Hillary Clinton. Can we have some investigation of what Hillary was doing at that time? Hint—she was helping the Viet Cong win the Vietnam War by overthrowing Richard Nixon.]
Three years later, the Justice Department took Trump back to court because he hadn’t changed.
The pattern continued through the decades.
State regulators fined one of Trump’s casinos for repeatedly removing black dealers from the floor.
ricky[A high rolling gambler refused to play if blacks, minorities, or women were dealing, and the casino agreed. Trump wasn’t involved. Also, this was in 1992. What was Hillary doing for blacks in 1992? I think she was in Arkansas with her husband as he oversaw the execution of brain-damaged black murderer Ricky Ray Rector.]
No wonder the turn-over rate for his minority employees was way above average.
And let’s not forget Trump first gained political prominence leading the charge for the so-called “Birthers.”
He promoted the racist lie that President Obama isn’t really an American citizen—part of a sustained effort to delegitimize America’s first black President.
[Of course this was only possible because Obama was weirdly refusing to release his birth certificate. Plus anything you say about Obama is racist because he’s black. Would it be OK to be suspicious of the citizenship status of the child of a possibly bigamous marriage between a Russian exchange student and a minor in which took place in 1960, under different laws than today’s? Anyhow no mainstream Republican dared question it, and Mrs. Clinton praises McCain for attacking his own supporters who did. Trump just wanted answers.]
In 2015, Trump launched his own campaign for President with another racist lie. He described Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals
[Specifically Trump saidThey are bringing drugs and they are bringing crime, and they’re rapists. Some, I assume are good people. ” If Clinton is going to call this a lie, doesn’t she have to prove that they’re not? A significant proportion—not all, of course, that’s stupid—of Mexican immigrants are indeed rapists and criminals. To address the rape issue specifically: Mexico is culturally a much more rape-friendly country than the US. See the Washington Post’s Pulitzer Prize-winning story In Mexico, an Unpunished Crime, by Mary Jordan, June 30, 2002. Ann Coulter’s book Adios America has a whole chapter on Mexican rapes in America. You may have seen them reported in your paper, headlined “Man Arrested.”]
And he accused the Mexican government of actively sending them across the border. None of that is true.
[Mexico has whole Ministries and government departments to support their illegal emigrants to America. They’ve even published comic books to help them. About the only sense in which you can say the Government isn’t “actively sending” them is that they’re not draftees.]
Oh, and by the way, Mexico’s not paying for his wall either.
[Trump  has explained how it can be done: by taxing remittances.]
If it ever gets built, you can be sure that American taxpayers will be stuck with the bill.
[Cheap at the price—every Mexican illegal costs America money.]
Since then, there’s been a steady stream of bigotry.
We all remember when Trump said a distinguished federal judge born in Indiana couldn’t be trusted to do his job because, quote, “He’s a Mexican.”
[He IS a Mexican—his father came from Mexico in the 1920s—possibly illegallyand he’s entitled on that basis to Mexican dual citizenship if he wants it. Trump’s point is that he’s could be a Mexican sympathizer, and if you need any proof of that, Judge Curiel is a  member of the La Raza Lawyers Association of San Diego, which supports pro-illegal immigrant organizations. Plus, how come Sonia Sotomayor can say we need “wise Latinas’?]
Think about that.
The man who today is the standard bearer of the Republican Party said a federal judge was incapable of doing his job solely because of his heritage.
[Would you like to know how many Democrats have complained about white (a) judges (b) juries and (c) policemen? When they do, they frequently use the expression “heritage  of racism.”]
Even the Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, described that as “the textbook definition of a racist comment.”
[Ryan is a cuckservative RAT.]
To this day, he’s never apologized to Judge Curiel.
But for Trump, that’s just par for the course.

This is someone who retweets white supremacists online, like the user who goes by the name “white-genocide-TM.” Trump took this fringe bigot with a few dozen followers and spread his message to 11 million people.
[As you can see at right, his “message” was “You always have the best crowds.Another was a picture of a homeless Jeb Bush in front of Trump Tower ]
His campaign famously posted an anti-Semitic image—a Star of David imposed over a sea of dollar bills—that first appeared on a white supremacist website.
[The image, right, was plucked at random off the internet, by a candidate insufficiently paranoid about giving offense. When Trump saw that people seriously thought it was anti-Semitic, he replaced it with the same thing in a circle. But they both have same message—“History Made: Most Corrupt Candidate Ever.” Why doesn’t Hillary reply to that? ]
ADVERTISEMENT
The Trump campaign also selected a prominent white nationalist leader as a delegate in California. They only dropped him under pressure.
[The “prominent” white leader was William Johnson, head of the American Freedom Party, who can’t be that prominent or I’d have heard of him. “Delegate” is a volunteer position—anyone can apply and be accepted. How many felons are Clinton delegates?]
When asked in a nationally televised interview whether he would disavow the support of David Duke, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, Trump wouldn’t do it. Only later, again under mounting pressure, did he backtrack.
[Ann Coulter wrote of this attack: “Do they have TV sets at CNN? An Internet connection? I don’t work at a television network, but I saw Trump “disavow” David Duke a half-dozen times before Jake Tapper asked him to disavow Duke again last Sunday.…Given that Trump did disavow Duke the day before the Tapper interview, the only explanation for his refusal to do it again is that he was ticked off by the question and decided not to play ball. (Tip for journalists: When WASPs don’t want to answer impertinent questions from reporters, they often say, “I don’t know,” rather than the more urban go f—-yourself.”)”]
And when Trump was asked about anti-Semitic slurs and death threats coming from his supporters, he refused to condemn them.
[Has Clinton repudiated any of (a) Black Lives Matter (b) anti-Trump rioters (c) anti-Christian and anti-white rhetoric from her supporters? ]
Through it all, he has continued pushing discredited conspiracy theories with racist undertones.
Trump said thousands of American Muslims in New Jersey cheered the 9/11 attacks. They didn’t.
[They did. See IN TRUMP WE TRUST , chapter 9, for an analysis of this. She counted “[M]ore than two dozen people reporting separate and distinct instances of between a dozen and forty Muslims celebrating the 9/11 attacks in the New York vicinity, at a minimum of six different locations— two street addresses in Jersey City, at least two in Paterson, and somewhere in Queens and Brooklyn, as Mayor Giuliani’s police reports stated. And this was in the face of a media and political culture determined to suppress negative information about Muslims.” At that point, their only counterclaim is that two dozen instances of between 12 and 40 is hundreds rather than thousands. ]
…His latest paranoid fever dream is about my health. All I can say is, Donald, dream on.
This is what happens when you treat the National Enquirer like Gospel.
It’s what happens when you listen to the radio host Alex Jones, who claims that 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombings were inside jobs. He said the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre were child actors and no one was actually killed there.
Trump didn’t challenge those lies. He went on Jones’ show and said: “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down.”
[Trump is not responsible for journalists’ opinions. He also gives interviews to the New York Times.]
…Now, some people will say that his bluster and bigotry is just over-heated campaign rhetoric—an outrageous person saying outrageous things for attention.
But look at the policies Trump has proposed. They would put prejudice into practice.
And don’t be distracted by his latest attempts to muddy the waters.
He may have some new people putting new words in his mouth… but we know where he stands.
He would form a deportation force to round up millions of immigrants and kick them out of the country.
[Of course there already IS a deportation force—but a corrupt establishment isn’t using it.]
He’d abolish the bedrock constitutional principle that says if you’re born in the United States, you’re an American citizen. He says that children born in America to undocumented parents are, quote, “anchor babies” and should be deported. [The First and Second Amendments are actually “bedrock” constitutional principles, and Hillary wants a Supreme Court that would destroy them. The  “citizen child” interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment is highly questionable. ]
Millions of them.
And he’d ban Muslims around the world—1.5 billion men, women, and children –from entering our country just because of their religion.
Think about that for a minute. How would it actually work? People landing in U.S. airports would line up to get their passports stamped, just like they do now.
But in Trump’s America, when they step up to the counter, the immigration officer would ask every single person, “What is your religion?”
And then what?
What if someone says, “I’m a Christian,” but the agent doesn’t believe them.
Do they have to prove it? How would they do that?
Ever since the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, America has distinguished itself as a haven for people fleeing religious persecution.
Under Donald Trump, America would distinguish itself as the only country in the world to impose a religious test at the border.
[WHAT? Israel has a religious test for its Law Of Return, Saudi Arabia boasts of its infidel-free zones in Mecca—and asks you to prove you’ve never been to Israel. ]
Come to think of it, there actually may be one place that does that. It’s the so-called Islamic State. The territory ISIS controls. It would be a cruel irony if America followed its lead.
[This is weirdly stupid. American consulates already interview applicants for visas. They can deny them on any grounds they want]
Don’t worry, some will say, as President, Trump will be surrounded by smart advisors who will rein in his worst impulses.
So when a tweet gets under his skin and he wants to retaliate with a cruise missile, maybe cooler heads will be there to convince him not to.
Maybe.
But look at who he’s put in charge of his campaign.
Trump likes to say he only hires the “best people.” But he’s had to fire so many campaign managers it’s like an episode of The Apprentice.
The latest shake-up was designed to—quote—“Let Trump be Trump.” To do that, he hired Stephen Bannon, the head of a right-wing website called Breitbart.com, as campaign CEO.
Clinton-Gore-1992-Confederate[1]To give you a flavor of his work, here are a few headlines they’ve published:
That one came shortly after the Charleston massacre, when Democrats and Republicans alike were doing everything they could to heal racial divides. [Really? I seem to remember a public orgy of anti-white, anti-Southern hate.]Breitbart tried to inflame them further.
Just imagine—Donald Trump reading that and thinking: “this is what I need more of in my campaign.”
Bannon has nasty things to say about pretty much everyone.
This spring, he railed against Paul Ryan for, quote “rubbing his social-justice Catholicism in my nose every second.”
[Clinton, of course, does not mention that Bannon is, like Ryan,  a Catholic himself, just not a “social justice” Catholic. Ryan’s belief that his religion requires him to open America’s borders is offensive to any patriotic Catholic, and probably, like a lot of “social justice” beliefs, formally heretical.]
No wonder he’s gone to work for Trump—the only Presidential candidate ever to get into a public feud with the Pope.
[Trump, a Presbyterian,  was attacked by the Pope, who said Trump wasn’t a Christian. Which makes Pope Francis the only Pope ever to get into a public feud with an American Presidential candidate—and lose. See Trump 1 – Pope 0 : Francis backs down over ‘not Christian’ claim as Vatican says it was not a ‘personal attack’ or attempt to influence presidential vote]
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, Breitbart embraces
“ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right. Racist ideas.
Race-baiting ideas. Anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant ideas –– all key tenets making up an emerging racist ideology known as the ‘Alt-Right.’”
Alt-Right is short for “Alternative Right.”
The Wall Street Journal describes it as a loosely organized movement, mostly online, that “rejects mainstream conservatism, promotes nationalism and views immigration and multiculturalism as threats to white identity.”
The de facto merger between Breitbart and the Trump Campaign represents a landmark achievement for the “Alt-Right.” A fringe element has effectively taken over the Republican Party.
This is part of a broader story—the rising tide of hardline, right-wing nationalism around the world.
Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum on leaving the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi.
[Anti-immigration sentiments, that would be. And the point of Brexit is that if Britain hadn’t left the EU, everyone in Europe would be entitled to live there.]
Farage has called for a ban on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are quote “worth less” than men, and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race—that’s who Trump wants by his side.
[Farage suggested that for the first five years after immigrating to the UK, immigrants should pay for their own children’s education. This is similar to the US laws that are supposed to prevent immigrant from being “public charge”, or requiring legal immigrants to have health insurance. Hillary is associated with the economically illiterate  claim that women who earn 76 cents for every  dollar that men do are “underpaid.” Farage pointed  out that if women earn less, they are worth less (note, that’s two words)because that’s what “earn” means.]
The godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In fact, Farage has appeared regularly on Russian propaganda programs.
[This means that when the British propaganda network (the BBC) was stonewalling Farage, RT.com featured him regularly. ]
Now he’s standing on the same stage as the Republican nominee….
Of course there’s always been a paranoid fringe in our politics, steeped in racial resentment. But it’s never had the nominee of a major party stoking it, encouraging it, and giving it a national megaphone. Until now.
On David Duke’s radio show the other day, the mood was jubilant.
“We appear to have taken over the Republican Party,” one white supremacist said.
Duke laughed. There’s still more work to do, he said.
No one should have any illusions about what’s really going on here. The names may have changed… Racists now call themselves “racialists.” White supremacists now call themselves “white nationalists.” The paranoid fringe now calls itself “alt-right.” But the hate burns just as bright.
And now Trump is trying to rebrand himself as well. Don’t be fooled.
There’s an old Mexican proverb that says “Tell me with whom you walk, and I will tell you who you are.” [This is known as “Guilt By Association”—and she hasn’t actually got any association.]
We know who Trump is. A few words on a teleprompter won’t change that.
He says he wants to “make America great again,” but his real message remains “Make America hate again.”
This isn’t just about one election. It’s about who we are as a nation.
It’s about the kind of example we want to set for our children and grandchildren.
Next time you watch Donald Trump rant on television, think about all the kids listening across our country. They hear a lot more than we think.
Parents and teachers are already worried about what they’re calling the “Trump Effect.”
Bullying and harassment are on the rise in our schools, especially targeting students of color, Muslims, and immigrants.
At a recent high school basketball game in Indiana, white students held up Trump signs and taunted Latino players on the opposing team with chants of “Build the wall!” and “Speak English.”
[So Hillary’s against speaking English?]
After a similar incident in Iowa, one frustrated school principal said, “They see it in a presidential campaign and now it’s OK for everyone to say this.”
We wouldn’t tolerate that kind of behavior in our own homes. [i.e. any sign of white American consciousness].
How can we stand for it from a candidate for president?
This is a moment of reckoning for every Republican dismayed that the Party of Lincoln has become the Party of Trump. It’s a moment of reckoning for all of us who love our country and believe that America is better than this.
Twenty years ago, when Bob Dole accepted the Republican nomination, he pointed to the exits and told any racists in the Party to get out. [Dole lost]
The week after 9/11, George W. Bush went to a mosque and declared for everyone to hear that Muslims “love America just as much as I do.”
[He was wrong. Polls say they’re disloyal, and they’ve   committed many  terrorist attacks since 9/11,  some of them recorded in our Immigrant Mass Murder records. The exact number is unclear—because of MSM and governmental obfuscation—but there are at least 44 terror attacks on US soil, and an unknown number of other killings.]
In 2008, John McCain told his own supporters they were wrong about the man he was trying to defeat. Senator McCain made sure they knew—Barack Obama is an American citizen and “a decent person.” [McCain lost].
We need that kind of leadership again.
[We = Democrats. Sure they do!]
Every day, more Americans are standing up and saying “enough is enough”—including a lot of Republicans. I’m honored to have their support.
Clinton ended her tirade against  Trump by mentioning two black Olympians. The first is the hijab wearing fencer :
Ibtihaj Muhammad,  an African-American Muslim from New Jersey who won the bronze medal in fencing with grace and skill. Would she even have a place in Donald Trump’s America?”
[Does she want one? She’s said she hates Trump, and she blames him because people are suspicious of Black Muslims with swords. Below is her posing for a joke picture of a beheading. Now imagine a white Olympian posing for joke picture of noose.  ]

The other black Olympian she mentioned is Simone Manuel, a swimmer from Sugar Land, Texas. Hillary said
“When I was growing up, Simone Manuel wouldn’t have been allowed to swim in the same public pool as Katie Ledecky. Now they’re winning Olympic medals as teammates. “
ledeckyThis is what Steve Sailer means when he says that for the Left, it’s always Clarksdale, Mississipi in 1965. Miss Manuel would have been allowed to swim in pools in Illinois, where Mrs. Clinton was born, but not in Sugar Land, it’s true.
But her Olympic teammate, Katie Ledecky, right, went to a Catholic school in Bethesda, Maryland, that is zero percent black.
What is her future, or her school’s future in Hillary’s America? Hillary doesn’t care, but we do, and so does Trump.

How Correct is Political Correctness?

An interesting article from http://www.ucg.org/ about Political Correctness. This follows this post about the Virginia Tech shooting. This follows this post about Iran. This follows this post about Zika. For a free magazine subscription or to get the books recommended for free click HERE! or call 1-888-886- 8632.

Sometimes it seems like political correctness (PC) has been around forever. Some commentators peg the beginning of political correctness within the decade of the 1980s.
But the politically correct movement already had a foundation long before that in moral relativism and in situation ethics. Both of these philosophies are based on the idea that there is no such thing as “absolute truth.” Those of us who know and accept the “absolute truth” of the Bible know that such thinking is flawed. We also discover that there is more to the business of PC than “correctness.”
PC is so prevalent and powerful because it is based on our innate desire for love, peace and justice for the underdog. But without the true biblical principles to guide these desires, they can run amok.

What does it sound like?

PC nouns and adjectives include words such as “privileged,” “entitled,” “majority rule,” “diversity” and “individual rights.” While “tolerance” is a favorite buzzword of the politically correct, PC actually creates its own intolerance that often quickly shouts down alternative viewpoints.
You'll hear all about “imperialism” in history, “reason” in English, “exploitation” in economics, “evolution” as fact in biology and “connecting to the greater world” in sociology. And, if you listen very carefully, you'll hear that the words spoken are not really about equal opportunity for all.

How does it look and feel?

PC embraces minorities, but not because it respects everyone like God does or as the Constitution of the United States and its amendments advocate. According to author and radio host Laura Ingraham, political correctness uses polarization to reinforce division and ends up creating classes among our citizens ( Shut Up and Sing , 2003, p. 62).
Your PC classroom will be one with an emphasis on personal right of choice—but, when you stand back and take an overview, this turns out to be a shortsighted approach that is rarely for the collective good of all . The barometer of the politically correct movement tends to be the gratification of one person or one particular group of people.
Your PC classroom will be one in which each student is encouraged to lobby for that right of choice but will rarely follow up on the personal responsibility needed in taking that action.
In the politically correct worldview, abortion is a reproductive right and homosexuality is an alternative lifestyle just as valid as any other. All religions, from animism to Wicca, are equal (except one that would claim to know absolute truth). You'll be made to feel ostracized and intimidated if you hold an alternative opinion.

What difference does it make to you?

While being politically correct will put you in a generally comfortable place with your professors and peers, it will slowly take you away from biblical values.
Our freedoms grant us the ability and the opportunity to contribute to a healthy, functional society through personal choice, personal responsibility and personal accountability. This is obviously a better choice.

How can you be prepared to deal with it?

As your college schedule gets more demanding, be sure to set aside time to continue learning about God's gifts. These precious gifts include having a sound mind, peace, gentleness, kindness, self-control, joy, goodness, love, faithfulness and personal responsibility.
Never close your mind's door to discernment. Be aware of current events. Pick up a couple of books for summer reading that deal with the PC topic (such as Bias by Bernard Goldberg or Shut Up and Sing by Laura Ingraham). Talk with your friends and encourage one another to stand up for the integrity of a giving way of life.
As you enter and progress through your higher education, remember the sounds, sights and feelings of the politically correct movement. Be prepared and ready to understand the difference between the counterfeit and truth. VT

Clarifying Prez Candidates' Immigration Stances: OUR NEW VOTER GUIDE

An interesting article from www.numbersusa.com about the presidential candidate's stance on immigration issues. This follows this post about Donald Trump's appeal. Remember, “Amnesty” means ANY non-enforcement of existing immigration laws! This follows this comment and this post about how to Report Illegal Immigrants!

Clarifying Prez Candidates' Immigration Stances: OUR NEW VOTER GUIDE

 

 https://www.numbersusa.com/sendfax

Which presidential nominees would increase flow of foreign workers and which would reduce the flow?
That's the question we are answering with our new Voter Guide. We've posted it on our website today just as the news is filled with confusion about what presidential nominees would do about immigration.

In fact, not everything is clarified.
But the positions of the candidates are a lot easier to compare if we focus on how immigration affects Americans workers rather than on what to do with the estimated 11 million illegal foreign workers and their dependents currently in the country.
We've just posted a brand new voter guide to help you focus on the 10 most important immigration policy issues and where the nominees of the Democratic, Republican, Libertarian and Green Parties stand on them.
At the moment, the mass media are trying to make it seem that the most important issue is about what should be done with the 11 million foreign citizens in this country who illegally crossed the border or overstayed their visas.


The key question is not what to do with illegal aliens . . .


. . . but how many foreign citizens should businesses be allowed to hire ahead of Americans.

That's what you'll find in our new Voter Guide, showing each nominee's stance on 10 policies that most affect the number of work permits granted to foreign citizens.
They include:
  • E-Verify
  • Chain Migration
  • Visa Lottery
  • Border
  • High-Skill Visas
  • Work Permits to Illegal Foreign Workers
  • Sanctuary Policies
Take a look. To read more about one of the nominees, click on their photo. That is also a way for you to contact their campaign office to encourage them to become more pro-American-worker.
Then join the conversation below.
Let us know if we are missing some recent statement from one of the nominees that should be included.
We will be continually updating the Voter Guide through the fall. (As always, NumbersUSA does not endorse candidates. Rather, we help voters learn which candidates are most in line with our positions on only one issue -- immigration numbers.)

Village Life Has Ceased Virginia Tech Tragedy

An interesting article from http://www.ucg.org/ about the Virginia Tech shooting. This follows this post about Iran. This follows this post about Zika. For a free magazine subscription or to get the books recommended for free click HERE! or call 1-888-886- 8632.


Tragedy struck at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, on Monday, April 16, when 32 students and faculty members were brutally massacred—a sobering reminder of our violent age. In the past few years, since the late 1990s, school shootings have become a depressingly repetitive occurrence in the United States.
photo A few years ago I experienced firsthand the fear of such violence at my high school during a lockdown due to a threat of serious danger. The feeling of fear came back only months later with the terrible shooting at nearby Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon. A murderous student shot 26, but killed only four thanks to heroic responses by students and emergency crews. It shook the entire community.
Beyond the obvious loss of life, the second most tragic result of these despicable acts is the loss of innocence to the young people who suffer through these attacks. Be sure to request or download the free booklet Why Does God Allow Suffering? .
When you spend time fearing for your life and the lives of those around you, you become suspicious of everyone and everything. It takes a lot of work to see the world as a place with hope and happiness again. That this happens in schools—institutions that should represent safety and assurance of good things to come—is emotionally and spiritually damaging and such a sad waste of youthful potential.
Several television commentators introduced the Virginia Tech situation with, “People are just trying to make sense of these events.” The problem with that statement is that you can't make sense of such horrible acts. It's insanity in the same way that war is insanity and tragic no matter how you try to explain it. We can't live completely happy, fulfilled lives in a world full of violence on an individual or international scale. God has other, better plans for man, but mankind and the devil have managed to thwart those plans throughout history—for a little while at least.
The violence at Virginia Tech, or anywhere in the world, reminds me of how Deborah in the biblical book of Judges described her battle against the violent, terrorizing forces of King Jabin and General Sisera. “The highways were deserted, and… village life ceased, it ceased in Israel” until her leadership helped to bring justice (Judges 5:6-7). Village life, campus life and family life are interrupted and injured during tragedies like these, and people mistrust and grow fearful, even of God.
America, like all the nations of the world, diverges from the direction God planned for peoples to go. Some try to blame the weapons in these tragedies—as if a piece of metal and gunpowder caused mayhem and death of its own volition. But the real crisis is in the hearts of those who wield such weapons to do violence. The influence of a society that is entertained by sin and violence produces the setting in which a warped mind is developed, yet the sins of the individual are his or hers alone.
Facing tragedy can mire us in the sadness of wasted life. But this is the time to grow strong with faith, hope and courage. The future is not lost, and God provides endless hope within His plan for all those killed or wounded throughout history. Hardships strengthen us, testing our resolve and fortitude to do what is right—no matter the cost. When we appeal to God with repentance for help and guidance, the words of Isaiah carry considerable weight:
“Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you: The glory of the L ORD shall be your rear guard. Then you shall call, and the L ORD will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, 'Here I am'” (Isaiah 58:8-9). VT

Virginia knife attack likely an Islamic State-inspired beheading attempt

A timely post about from www.jihadwatch.org about a downplayed story about Virginia. This follows this post about Benghazi victims' families suing Hillary Clinton. This follows this article about American energy independence and preventing money from going to hostile countries. For more, you can read two very interesting books HERE.You can follow me here.

Virginia knife attack may be Islamic State-inspired beheading attempt

Two innocent victims were stabbed in a Roanoke apartment building, in what was reported by investigators to be a random attack. The only piece of information that first emerged was eyewitness accounts of Wasil Farooqui yelling “Allahu akbar” as he stabbed his victims. Now we learn:
“The madman who allegedly shouted “Allah Akbar” as he stabbed two victims in Virginia over the weekend may have been aiming for an ISIS-inspired beheading.”
By Western standards, any human committing such an atrocity is deemed “mad,” “crazy,” “insane,” “messed up,” etc. While such acts are indeed “sick” as Westerners know it, our civilized culture fails to grasp the nature and history of jihadi zeal, driven by the will to conquer and indoctrination about the necessity of violence toward the infidel, including commands to “cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers” (Qur’an 3:151) and “strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip” (Qur’an 8:12).

More on this story. “Virginia knife attack may have been ISIS-inspired beheading attempt”, by Keri Blakinger, New York Daily News (thanks to The Religion of Peace), August 23, 2016:
The madman who allegedly shouted “Allah Akbar” as he stabbed two victims in Virginia over the weekend may have been aiming for an ISIS-inspired beheading, sources told ABC News.
Wasil Farooqui is accused of wounding a man and woman in a Roanoke apartment building when he went after them Saturday evening with a knife, authorities said.
The brutal attacker and his two victims — who may have been picked at random — were taken to the hospital after the stabbing. Though the pair was severely injured, by Monday they were “recovering well,” police said in a statement.
The victims’ names will not be released, police said.
The 20-year-old stabber may have been trying to behead his male victim, according to ABC.
Farooqui has been on the feds’ radar for a while, and may have journeyed to Turkey and tried sneaking into Syria sometime within the past year.
After the August knife attack, the FBI launched a probe into a possible terror connection.
Farooqui has been charged with two counts of aggravated malicious wounding and is being held without bail in the county jail…..
