Trump Right on 14th Amendment

Scene_at_the_Signing_of_the_Constit From an article in Freedom Outpost – So Donald Trump was right!

Robert Tracinski at The Federalist argues that deporting birthright citizens would be a direct assault on the Constitution and “the thousand year history of English common law.”

He says to do so, “requires precisely the sort of thing conservatives are supposed to be against.” He explains that, at the time of the founding, America embraced birthright citizenship – that “for the Founders, rejecting jus soli or birthright citizenship would have meant either greatly restricting the growth and expansion of the new nation or, more likely, creating a system in which there was a large and growing subpopulation of people who were disenfranchised in the land of their own birth. An idea totally incompatible with a government based on the consent of the governed.”

Tracinski then moves on to the 14th amendment, which is the centerpiece of the argument for birthright citizenship. The 14th amendment was the second post-Civil War amendment and was written to bestow citizenship on the freed slaves.

Like Tracinski, I too argued that Trump couldn’t just deport “birthright citizens.”

So now, I am here to eat crow, as it were. I thought I recalled the 14th amendment sufficiently to disagree with Trump, I was wrong—so are Tracinski and anyone else who hold up this amendment as proof that these illegals are, in fact, citizens.

And, of course, it took my favorite and most knowledgeable constitutional scholar, Mark Levin, to remind me of this.

The 14th amendment, ratified July 9, 1868, reads: “Section1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”

If one wishes to fully understand the Constitution, one must also read what the Founders said and wrote regarding it. This is what is called original intent. By doing so, one can glean not only what they wrote but the motive behind it, which can be found in many letters the founders wrote to each other and, of course, the Federalist Papers. In short, go back to the source.

And Levin did just that. He writes that Senator Jacob Howard authored the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment. “He [Howard] told us what he meant. He defined who would fall within the jurisdiction of the United States.”

This is what Howard said: “Every person born within the limits of the United States, subject to their jurisdiction, [meaning the states – their jurisdiction] is, by virtue of natural law and national law, a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great issue in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country.”

Senator Lyman Trumbull, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, supported Howard, contending that “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” meant “not owing allegiance to anybody else…subject to the complete jurisdiction of the United States.”

Well, it doesn’t get much clearer than that. There can be no question of his intent and no longer any question of what he meant by “and subject to their jurisdiction.” In other words, Levin writes: “You can’t self-immigrate. You can’t claim jurisdiction because you happen to walk into the United States,” and you can’t magically become a citizen if both your parents have fidelity to another nation.

So shame on me for not looking more closely at the amendment and just assuming the amendment had not been bastardized like everything else in the Constitution. Thank you, Mark Levin, for setting me straight.”

Who Lost Europe? Is US next?

11021160_729822803829650_8896260166884661220_nIn a generation or two, the US will ask itself: “Who lost Europe ?”

Here is the speech of Geert Wilders, Chairman, Party for Freedom the Netherlands , at the Four Seasons in New York , introducing an Alliance of Patriots and announcing the Facing Jihad Conference in Jerusalem .

“Dear friends,

  Thank you very much for inviting me.

 I come to America with a mission.  All is not well in the old world.  There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic.  We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe.  This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West.  The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe.

 First, I will describe the situation on the ground in Europe ..  Then, I will say a few things about Islam. To close I will tell you about a meeting in Jerusalem ..

The Europe you know is changing. You have probably seen the landmarks.  But in all of these cities, sometimes a few blocks away from your tourist destination, there is another world.  It is the world of the parallel society created by Muslim mass-migration.

All throughout Europe a new reality is rising: entire Muslim neighborhoods where very few indigenous people reside or are even seen.  And if they are, they might regret it.  This goes for the police as well. It’s the world of head scarves, where women walk around in figureless tents, with baby strollers and a group of children. Their husbands, or slaveholders if you prefer, walk three steps ahead. With mosques on many street corners.  The shops have signs you and I cannot read. You will be hard-pressed to find any economic activity. These are Muslim ghettos controlled by religious fanatics. These are Muslim neighborhoods, and they are mushrooming in every city across Europe . These are the building-blocks for territorial control of increasingly larger portions of Europe , street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, city by city.

There are now thousands of mosques throughout Europe .  With larger congregations than there are in churches.  And in every European city there are plans to build super-mosques that will dwarf every church in the region.  Clearly, the signal is: we rule.

  Many European cities are already one-quarter Muslim: just take Amsterdam , Marseille and Malmo in Sweden.  In many cities the majority of the under-18 population is Muslim.   Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods. Mohammed is the most popular name among boys in many cities.

In some elementary schools in Amsterdam the farm can no longer be mentioned, because that would also mean mentioning the pig, and that would be an insult to Muslims.

  Many state schools in Belgium and Denmark only serve halal food to all pupils.  In once-tolerant Amsterdam gays are beaten up almost exclusively by Muslims.  Non-Muslim women routinely hear ‘whore, whore’.  Satellite dishes are not pointed to local TV stations, but to stations in the country of origin.

In France school teachers are advised to avoid authors deemed offensive to Muslims, including Voltaire and Diderot; the same is increasingly true of Darwin .  The history of the Holocaust can no longer be taught because of Muslim sensitivity.

In England sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.  Last week a man almost died after being beaten up by Muslims in Brussels , because he was drinking during the Ramadan.

Jews are fleeing France in record numbers, on the run for the worst wave of anti-Semitism since World War II.  French is now commonly spoken on the streets of Tel Aviv and Netanya , Israel ..  I could go on forever with stories like this. Stories about Islamization.

San Diego University recently calculated that a staggering  25 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim just 12 years from now.  Bernhard Lewis has predicted a Muslim majority by the end of this century.

Now these are just numbers.  And the numbers would not be threatening if the Muslim-immigrants had a strong desire to assimilate.  But there are few signs of that.  The Pew Research Center reported that half of French Muslims see their loyalty to Islam as greater than their loyalty to France .  One-third of French Muslims do not object to suicide attacks. The British Centre for Social Cohesion reported that one-third of British Muslim students are in favor of a worldwide caliphate. Muslims demand what they call ‘respect’.  And this is how we give them respect.  We have Muslim official state holidays.

The Christian-Democratic attorney general is willing to accept sharia in the Netherlands if there is a Muslim majority.  We have cabinet members with passports from Morocco and Turkey .

Muslim demands are supported by unlawful behavior, ranging from petty crimes and random violence, for example, against ambulance workers and bus drivers, to small-scale riots.   Paris has seen its uprising in the low-income suburbs, the banlieus.  I call the perpetrators ‘settlers’,  because that is what they are.  They do not come to integrate into our societies; they come to integrate our society into their Dar-al-Islam.  Therefore, they are settlers.

Much of this street violence I mentioned is directed exclusively against non-Muslims, forcing many native people to leave their neighborhoods, their cities, their countries.  Moreover, Muslims are now a swing vote not to be ignored.

 The second thing you need to know is the importance of Mohammed the prophet.  His behavior is an example to all Muslims and cannot be criticized.  Now, if Mohammed had been a man of peace, let us say like Ghandi and Mother Theresa wrapped in one, there would be no problem.  But Mohammed was a warlord, a mass murderer, a pedophile, and had several marriages – at the same time.  Islamic tradition tells us how he fought in battles, how he had his enemies murdered and even had prisoners of war executed.  Mohammed himself slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza.  If it is good for Islam, it is good.  If it is bad for Islam, it is bad.

Let no one fool you about Islam being a religion.  Sure, it has a god, and a here-after, and 72 virgins.  But in its essence Islam is a political ideology.  It is a system that lays down detailed rules for society and the life of every person.  Islam wants to dictate every aspect of life.  Islam means ‘submission’.  Islam is not compatible with freedom and democracy, because what it strives for is sharia.  If you want to compare Islam to anything, compare it to communism or national-socialism, these are all totalitarian ideologies.

Now you know why Winston Churchill called Islam ‘the most retrograde force in the world’, and why he compared Mein Kampf to the Quran.  The public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor.  I have lived in this country and visited it dozens of times.  I support Israel , first, because it is the Jewish homeland after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz , second because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of defense.

This tiny country is situated on the fault line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance.   Israel is facing the front lines of Jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines , Southern Thailand, Darfur in Sudan , Lebanon , and Aceh in Indonesia .   Israel is simply in the way, the same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel .  It is a war against the West.  It is Jihad.   Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us.  If there would have been no Israel , Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest.  Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of the dangers looming.

Many in Europe argue in favor of abandoning Israel in order to address the grievances of our Muslim minorities.  But if Israel were, God forbid, to go down, it would not bring any solace to the West .  It would not mean our Muslim minorities would all of a sudden change their behavior, and accept our values.  On the contrary, the end of Israel would give enormous encouragement to the forces of Islam. They would, and rightly so, see the demise of Israel as proof that the West is weak, and doomed.  The end of Israel would not mean the end of our problems with Islam, but only the beginning.  It would mean the start of the final battle for world domination.  If they can get Israel , they can get everything. So-called journalists volunteer to label any and all critics of Islamization as a ‘right-wing extremists’ or ‘racists’.  In my country, the Netherlands , 60 percent of the population now sees the mass immigration of Muslims as the number one policy mistake since World War II.  And another 60 percent sees Islam as the biggest threat.  Yet there is a greater danger than terrorist attacks, the scenario of America as the last man standing.  The lights may go out in Europe faster than you can imagine.  An Islamic Europe means a Europe without freedom and democracy, an economic wasteland, an intellectual nightmare, and a loss of military might for America – as its allies will turn into enemies, enemies with atomic bombs.  With an Islamic Europe, it would be up to America alone to preserve the heritage of Rome , Athens and Jerusalem ….

Dear friends, liberty is the most precious of gifts.  My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives.  All throughout Europe , American cemeteries remind us of the young boys who never made it home, and whose memory we cherish.  My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians.  We can only hand over this hard won liberty to Europe ‘s children in the same state in which it was offered to us.  We cannot strike a deal with mullahs and imams.  Future generations would never forgive us.  We cannot squander our liberties.  We simply do not have the right to do so.

We have to take the necessary action now to stop this Islamic stupidity from destroying the free world that we know.”

My question to those in Washington, those running for President, those in the Media, and especially Christians all over the United States;  Are you going to STAND, or be swallowed up and destroyed?   THIS NEXT ELECTION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION IN ALL OF AMERICA’S HISTORY!  AND REMEMBER THERE ARE ONLY 6 RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT WHO ARE NOT SOCIALISTS; Cruz, Trump, Paul, Huckabee, Walker, and Carson.

Update: Last night this hit my email.  So this is coming (here) to the US.  A Christian man in Maine, beaten and killed, his blood all over his Bible by an Islamic. Yet, watching the tail end of NCIS California, the whole show of politically correct,  calling us who are Christians, against Islam, the fanatical right.   But, Winston Churchill saw through the Koran, and he is the one who ended the centuries long Ottoman Period which overran Europe then, as now, it’s object is to take over all of Western Civilization.  Geert Wilder is absolutely right.  And I watched Sunday, Pastor Jack Graham preaching out of  Revelations.  He is right, the CHURCH is not ready period. God help us.

Compromise, Again?

11825031_10153756871633322_4404488389877693170_nBishop T.D. Jakes on Daystar Television Network and TBN Trinity Broadcasting Network is wrong again in his “Gay” Conclusion. It once was called a “mental illness”, which I believe has to do with the wiring of the brain, just as mental illnesses, ie bi-polar. But here Jakes, once again goes off away from GOD and HIS word, to form his own word. It is hypocrisy….Just as his voting for Obama was, and is…a Muslim Communist? That is NOT God’s word.   Again, some of these preachers in high media have chosen to RE-write the Bible, and change GOD’s original intent.  It is morally, and incomprehensibly, wrong.

http://freedomoutpost.com/2015/08/td-jakes-takes-american-religion-to-its-inherently-homosexual-conclusion/

From above link:

“The “We the People” worldview inherently, inevitably and quite proudly leads to everything from the “freedom” to murder tens of millions of our own babies for convenience to the “liberty” to “marry” whomever we please. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to murder children. Repent accordingly.) It’s all about us. It’s all about “We the People”…a people who will not have Christ to rule over us.

The derivative horrors of mass child sacrifice and sodomite “marriage” are born of our cherished “right” to freely and openly worship any god that we like. That’s what we (blasphemously) call a “God-given right” here in ‘Merica, and by treating God’s Nature and Word as optional we have set ourselves up for the cultural implosion that is now upon us and the much worse that is to come. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)

A Quoted T.D.Jakes:

“Megachurch leader and author T.D. Jakes says that homosexuals should attend congregations that affirm their lifestyle and that politics do not need to reflect biblical ethics, adding that his position on homosexuality is both “evolved and evolving.”

(MY word:  Since when does the Holy Bible, Word of God, “evolve”? Did not God say not to add or take away from the Bible?  He is the SAME, yesterday, today, and forever!! And so is what God deems as sin!)

During an interview with the Huffington Post on Monday, Jakes was asked by a viewer if he believes that homosexuals and the black church can co-exist.

“Absolutely… I think it is going to be diverse from church to church. Every church has a different opinion on the issue and every gay person is different,” he replied. “And I think that to speak that the church—the black church, the white church or any kind of church you wanna call it—are all the same, is totally not true.”

Jakes said that he thinks homosexuals should find congregations that affirm their lifestyle.

“LGBT’s of different types and sorts have to find a place of worship that reflects what your views are and what you believe like anyone else,” he outlined.

“The church should have the right to have its own convictions and values; if you don’t like those convictions and values [and] you totally disagree with it, don’t try to change my house, move into your own … and find somebody who gets what you get about faith,” Jakes added.

He said that the issue of homosexuality is “complex.”

Then we got this clarifying – and quite damning (in a proud, All-American kinda way) – little gem:

Once you begin to understand that democracy—that a republic actually—is designed to be an overarching system to protect our unique nuances, then we no longer look for public policy to reflect biblical ethics,” Jakes explained. (Emphasis added.)

We no longer look for public policy to reflect biblical values.” WHAT??

What happened to the 10 Commandments?  What happened to “Thou shalt have no other God’s before me?”  What happened to the Bible being the “INFALLIBLE WORD OF GOD” without any compromise?  Does Jakes use his pulpit now for following Obama? For HE voted for him, and in doing so, was not voting the Bible, but Action.  Unlike Black pastors like Bill Winston, and Frederick C. Price, Creflo Dollar, etc.  Jakes has his own agenda, that of Obama’s it would seem.  “By ye fruits we shall know them.”  No different than Pastor Rick Warren, starting up “Crislam” some time ago?  FALSE PROPHETS!  The trouble is I like this preacher, and often watch him.  He is powerful, and has a profound impact on his fellow Black men in the audience.   The problem is, I agree with Rev. Franklin Graham, and others, that the word of God is NOT to be compromised.  We cannot cave into what is “politically correct” jargon in the Government and the Media, and adapt in our churches.   Did not Jesus say, “Render to that which is Caesar’s, and unto God what is HIS?”   If God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, then we cannot change and alter HIS HOLY Word.  So I leave you a couple of links, to other posts.  How can we STAND in CHRIST and not adhere to HIS word?   I don’t believe “liberalism ” has any place in the House of God!    Any Amen’s out there?

Christians And The Abortion Issue

photo_17(Originally posted 4/22/14)

After the last election, President Obama, who advocates a “Woman’s Right to choose”.  Planned Parenthood has received over $400 Billion Dollars from the Black community.

Elections keep coming and going, and Christians who don’t vote in apathy, totally ignored the 6 million babies (not fetus’s) that were murdered in abortion.  I don’t believe this issue is dead, and I think its’ time we went back to basics and Biblical truths, that God calls abortion an abomination. We have important elections coming in 2014 and 2016, and I would hope that Christians rallied, did the work of God and stepped up to the plate as warriors. We have work to do. New Hampshire’s past Senator Bob Smith was the very first in Washington to show huge posters of aborted babies such as on this post. It is shameful that many close their eyes to these senseless murders, which amount to the progressives keeping the population down in African Black neighborhoods, where Planned Parenthood is more prevalent.

I thank God for Black African American preacher’s like Rev. Childress, whose links are on this site.   I thank God for others that did not get taken in by the media rhetoric and left during this election.   But, now, what about all these murders?    How my Lord Jesus must grieve when He sees all these babies come into Heaven, knowing how many were destroyed.

John 8:42-44  ” Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, you would love Me; for I proceeded forth and came from God neither came I of Myself, but He sent me.”( The unconverted man cannot understand the word of God, and neither can many Christians now!)”You are of your father, the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning” (Satan originated sin, and sin brings forth death.) “and abode not in truth, because there is no truth in him, when he speaks of his own, for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (Satan ).

God speaks out against Israel in Hosea 9:12-15 “As for Ephraim, their glory shall fly away like a bird from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception. Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left; yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!” ( The thrust of this verse is that God would continue to deal with Israel, even in Judgement, attempting to bring them back to Himself; however, the day would come that upon continued rebellion, He would be forced to say no to them. ) “Give them, O Lord; what will you give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts, ” (The prayer of this Verse is a prayer of compassion ..of 2 evils the Prophet chooses the lesser.  Better to be childless than to provide children for the MURDERER [Planned Parenthood?])  “All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I HATED them; for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of my house, I will love them no more; all their princes are revolters.” ( In Gilgal they later dethroned Immanuel [I Sam. 8:7, 11:14-15], and later enthroned the golden calf under Jeroboam, hence ‘all their wickedness’.)

All Christians as well as those that vote for abortion, may face just this from the Lord.  And it’s clear as can be how God reacts to rebellion.  “I will love them no more!”  “I will drive them out of my house!”   But, even worse, God says he HATED them.  All those Pro Choice advocates that call yourselves Christian, whether Catholics or not, beware of the wrath of the Almighty God.  Job 24:14 Says, ” The murderer rising with the light kills the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.”   The murdering of these unborn babies is more of a sin, than anyone with their politically correct jargon and “pro choice” rhetoric can ever imagine.  For you may have the door to Heaven just closed on you.

I Peter 4:5 ” Who shall give account to Him” (the coming Great White Throne Judgment where all unbelievers shall appear) “to Him” (Christ) “Who is ready to judge the quick”(living) “and the dead.”  God is the final judge, not Congress, not the liberals, and feminists, but the God many deny. I Peter 4:15 “But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.”  And if we suffer as a Christian in verse 16, we are not to be ashamed, but give glory to God on this behalf.  Abortion and voting for abortion in an elected official does NOT glorify God.

I John 3:15 says “Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer and you know that no murderer has Eternal Life abiding in him. ”  There is forgiveness for those that had abortions and cried out to the Lord acknowledging their sin.  But, to those that defile God, and propose this in laws and vote for those in office that proport abortion and a Right to Choose?  God will see you for what you are, a murderer.

After looking at that photo, I don’t understand Christians that did not vote God’s word in this election.  I don’t understand our new President Obama, receiving donations from Planned Parenthood.  Does he not care about life?  There are Christian alternatives and Care Net and other places that have adoption.  But, I cry out to my Lord who grieves at the murders of these innocent babies.   Christians ?  You need to come back to the cross of Jesus Christ and beg His forgiveness.  In Jesus precious Holy name, Amen.
