Vote in the RNC 2016 Presidential Straw Poll

vote-smart-button
The Republican National Committee has released a 2016 presidential straw poll asking users to choose the three names they would most like to see as the Republican nominee. They’ve presented the names of 32 potential nominees with a write-in at the end of the survey.

The names listed mostly won’t come as a surprise. Listed are people such as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Allen West and of course the main stream media and establishment darling Chris Christi of New Jersey. A couple of the names on their list did make me take a second glance, like Condoleezza Rice and former US Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton….wait – what?

As of today, according to  Real Clear Politics, several polls show Governor Christi is leading by a +4.0 spread.  So here’s your chance folks, to let the establishment know we’re fed up with big government and it’s time to restore the proper balance of power.  America isn’t broken; it is Washington that is broken.

Leave a comment below and let me know who  you would like to see as the Republican nominee in the 2016 presidential election?

Conservative Facebook pages marked for takeover by online liberal group

File this under, “I couldn’t make this up” –

It’s recently come to light that a group of liberals on Facebook have put together a list of about eighty conservative Facebook pages and have marked them for infiltration and takeover. The list was accidentally posted to the Citizens’ Post Facebook page. When they realized what they had done, the list was immediately taken down and a group page where they had been congregating was deleted.

Some very popular conservative pages like The pro-Sarah Palin “Barracuda Brigade” and the pro-Phil Robertson “I Stand with Phil” pages were among those listed as targets. Several pro-gun pages were also listed along with a justice for Benghazi page.

The online message concluded with the phrase “Moar Gotes,” an apparent reference to a technique used by Facebook liberals as “goating,” where pages are infiltrated and taken over by users posting multiple pictures and memes involving goats. (I told you I couldn’t make this up)

How does this happen? A liberal “troll” will con his or her way into the good graces of a page owner by posing as a conservative. This could take months. Once the person has been granted the proper privileges, he or she then takes over, removing all other administrators and flooding the page with various goat memes, thus shutting down the page.

Examiner.com’s David Thornton explained:
“Jason Doolin, owner of the conservative Citizens’ Post page on Facebook, said that Patrick Blair, posed as a representative of The Freedom Alliance and contacted him several months ago about helping him to expand his page. Blair gained his trust over a period of months.
There is a real Freedom Alliance as well, a Virginia based charity organized as 501(c)(3) organization that educates young Americans in civic responsibility and provides scholarships to the children of American soldiers.

Thornton added that Patrick Blair, “apparently operated several fake conservative Facebook pages and websites as a cover.”

According to Thornton, Blair conned other conservatives into helping him, only to delete their work later on, replacing it with goats. He also reportedly admitted “duping conservatives and ‘goating’ their pages.”

Thornton said he was uncertain why goats are used.

Owners of conservative pages should be extremely careful about those with whom they operate. Moreover, they should carefully examine and thoroughly vet those listed as administrators.

Above all, page owners should never, ever, grant manager access to anyone they do not know extremely well.

So what did we learn from this goat rope? (pun intended) The tolerant progressives believe in freedom of expression as long as it agrees with their ideology.

Here’s a .doc with a list of targeted sites:

160 year-old Documents Intentionally Destroyed in Franklin County, N.C.

This is an outrageous act that’s barely been covered by the main stream media. Why all the secrecy? Most likely because implications could have far reaching consequences for some of North Carolina’s more affluent families. They may have burned the evidence, but the truth will usually rise from the ashes.
Do you think someone is trying to bury the truth? Comment below, I’d really be interested in your thoughts.

Stumbling in the Shadows of Giants

I rarely re-blog, but this one deserves being spread far and wide.

Timeline of the Destruction of 100 Year Old Franklin County, NC Records

Please read the whole post included above – but the gist is as follows:

– This summer a new Clerk of Court in Franklin County discovered a trove (an entire roomful) of documents, some dating back to 1840, in a previously sealed room in the Franklin County, North Carolina Court House.

– Recognizing the historical value of these materials, she contacted the local historical society to assist in reviewing the materials, preserving them, and inventorying the materials.

– The Local historical group enthusiastically poured themselves into the project, mobilizing volunteers and the whole community – securing space to work, materials, and finances – in order to catalog and preserve the bounty of record books, photographs, deeds, chattel records, land grants, deeds, wills, personal correspondence, and countless…

Me and My House Will Serve the Lord and Not Watch A&E

Steven Ruffatto

Steven Ruffatto Asst. Professor
Criminal Justice at Harrisburg Area Community College 

Dear A&E,

Thank you for bringing us a show that was family friendly and fun to watch. I greatly appreciated the fact that my Christian family could watch a Christian family on TV as opposed to much of the garbage that is reality TV. Unfortunately, you have done a disservice to Phil Robertson as well as the Christian AND non-Christian fans of Duck Dynasty.

Freedom of speech means that we are all free to speak what we believe. The Supreme Court does restrict some speech. In fact they specifically address such speech that may cause panic or physical injury. The example they give is that someone cannot scream “fire” in a crowded movie theater when there is no fire.

Me and My House Will Serve the Lord and Not Watch A&E

Why, because it would cause a panic and people would get hurt. Did Phil Robertson’s speech meet this criteria set forth by the Supreme Court? No, it did not. The only people who panicked were the A&E executives that decided to pull Phil from the show.

Phil Robertson spoke what he knew to be true according to the Bible. Does that ruffle some peoples feathers because it goes against what they want to do? Yes it does.

The members of GLAAD are free to speak out against Christianity and those that believe in the Bible. How is that speech any different than Phil’s?

Under the U.S. Constitution they both have a right to express their thoughts and opinions. So why is Phil being punished for expressing his opinions? Why are you punishing Phil Robertson for being a Christian? This was not an incident of homophobia or hate speech.

Me and My House Will Serve the Lord and Not Watch A&E

This 2012 photo released by A&E shows, from left, Phil Robertson, Jase Robertson, Si Robertson and Willie Robertson from the A&E series, “Duck Dynasty.” The A&E channel says “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson is off the show indefinitely after condemning gays as sinners in a magazine interview. In a statement Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013, A&E said it was extremely disappointed to read Robertson’s comments in GQ magazine. (AP Photo/A&E, Zach Dilgard)

Homosexuality is clearly defined as a sin in the Bible just as other sins are listed. Stating it as a sin does not make someone anti-gay. Phil even stated, “we should love God and each other.”

If GLAAD and the LGBT community expect everyone to be tolerant of their views, opinions, and lifestyle choices, they too must be tolerant of Bible believing Christians, their views, opinions, and lifestyle choices. For A&E to succumb to the pressures of “political correctness” speaks volumes about your true concerns.

However, I would remind you that tolerance is a two-way street.

At this point what is needed is a clarification about your programming and your ant-Christian stance. If you are truly an anti-Christian station, which the move to pull Phil from the show based on his Christian beliefs reveals you to be, please be up front about it. You will most likely lose viewers based on this incident.

However, do not for a minute believe that you are losing viewers because of Phil’s comments. You will lose viewers due to your reaction to his comments.

Therefore, without clarification from A&E that you support Christians and Christian beliefs as much as you support GLAAD and the LGBT community, then  “As for Me and My House We Will No Longer Support or Watch A&E.”

Respectfully,

Steven D. Ruffatto


Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.

I’d really like to hear your thoughts. To me, this goes way beyond a TV show or family. It’s about political correctness trumping freedom of speech. What do you think? Please leave your comments below.

URGENT ACTION ALERT — Urge North Carolina Gov. to Sign Anti-Sharia Bill HB 522

There have been more than 50 cases in 23 states in which judges have applied foreign law, depriving people of their constitutional rights. No Sharia Law In America!

There have been more than 50 cases in 23 states in which judges have applied foreign law, depriving people of their constitutional rights.
No Sharia Law In America!

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is facing a tough decision – whether to veto a bill that prohibiting judges from considering foreign law, including Islamic Sharia law. Although there shouldn’t be a need for this law, sadly there is. There have been more than 50 cases in 23 states in which judges have applied foreign law, depriving people of their constitutional rights. Often women and children wind up the victims when Sharia law is applied. This is without a doubt unconstitutional, but that hasn’t stopped liberal judges.

North Carolina Muslims hope they can persuade the Republican governor to veto the bill, according to The State.com
Muslims oppose the effort because they think it is motivated by intolerance and say it could infringe on other religious groups. .
But others say measures banning the use of “foreign laws” are targeting Sharia law, not other religions – Nonsense!

On U.S. soil, we must all embrace the laws of this country via the Constitution, and not demand enforcement of rules and regulations left in other cultures. Many Sharia law problems in the United States involve cases of women being beaten by their Muslim husbands and judges ruling that because the men were not accustomed to U.S. laws against spousal abuse, they cannot be convicted.

CAIR sent out a national “action alert” urging Muslims to call and email McCrory to ask him to veto the bill. Defending Sharia law from U.S. restrictions is one of CAIR’s top agenda items, according to its March 2012 statement announcing a “community toolkit to challenge ‘Anti-Sharia’ bills.”


WE MUST TAKE ACTION TODAY!

If McCrory signs the bill, North Carolina would become the seventh state to have an anti-Sharia law, according to TheState.com, joining Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. Alabama lawmakers approved a similar constitutional amendment, which will be on the ballot for voters to consider in 2014.

alert17                                                                                                                                                      

As Americans, especially Americans living in North Carolina, we MUST take action now. House Bill 522, titled Foreign Laws/Protect Constitutional Rights,  has been ratified and sent to Governor McCrory for signature as of July 26, 2013.
Please take a moment to email Governor Pat McCrory through
this email form on the Governor’s web page  asking him to sign HB 522  The Anti-Sharia Bill.

We MUST let him know that as Americans we say,“NO FOREIGN LAWS IN AMERICA!”
Please be respectful when contacting the Governor, but make sure he knows you support HB522.
