Dr. Ben Carson: From my devotional. (God is a nice guy).

As I’ve done in the past I like to share from my devotional. A few of them have been from Dr. Ben Carson and have always been inspirational, thought provoking to me causing me to ponder my own walk and to look inside and helpful in tough and dark time’s in my walk. This devotional was given to me by my father years ago, way before Ben Carson became a public figure or Presidential candidate . Sharing these posts from him I think would help to get to know him apart from the “Lame Stream Media’s” agenda, spin and other political sources and references and share a rare look at the man’s heart and faith if you’v never had the pleasure before.

I would be very comfortable with this man running the country along with my favorites of the Republican candidates, Fiorina, and of course love Ted Cruz. Personally I think both Carson and Cruz are godly, faithful men and we could do a lot worse with theses guy’s in charge. They both have a clear record on what they believe and stand for. Florina would be a good leader too, I voted for here when she ran in California and I think she is faithful and her sharing of her faith has been truthful though I do not agree with her on her comment’s last night on the talk show when she said ” a Muslim shouldn’t be prevented from serving as president “ I think that was a “Politically Correct” answer.

Though I may agree with most of what Trump say’s in regard to immigration, the border and the way he has forced the conversation to the front of issues we are facing today that need to be dealt with. I think we’v had enough of a prideful arrogant, divisive leader for quite sometime. No doubt he’s a good business man and if he were to get elected I think it would be a sad commentary on our nation, showing the world we are hateful, childish, arrogant, a generation of me, me, me and screw the rest of you. I respect and agree with what Scott Walker did and said yesterday another godly man! “I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field,” Walker said. “… I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner.”  That’s my two cents anyway, moving on to the devotional. BTW on subject of politics’s one of the most excellent tool’s I use fro none bias look at politicians  is VoteSmart.org , give it a try.

“The Love of the Father” Author: Dr. Ben Carson.

“ABOUT my faith in God, I want to express a few heartfelt thoughts that may sound simplistic or irreverent. As I continue to develop my relationship with him , I have discovered that God is a nice guy.

 I confess that while growing up, I had bought into the concept of God as a stern individual who busily jots down in a book every mistake we make, so that on Judgment Day he can call us up and point to each one, saying “Why did you do this? I know you did this,” and then divulge to everybody present the unpraiseworthy actions of our lives.

 I have slowly matured, and have experienced God’s help in many crises. I have come to realize the God does not want to punish us but, rather, to fulfill our lives. God created us, loves us, and want’s to help us to realize our potential so that we can be useful to others.

 The relationship that God wants with me became particularly clear to me after Candy and I had children of out own. I realized how much I love my sons and how much I want for them. Of course I want them to be successful, and want to give them everything I can to make them happy. And I realized that God loves me even more than I love my own children.

 I cannot give my children everything, but I try to arrange their environment so that they can learn to stand on their own feet, to respect others and to become valuable citizens. 

 If I lavish everything on them, they will never reach those goals, but as long as my children know that I love them- that I will stand behind them and do everything within my power to assure their success in life, I feel that I have done what I can for them. They will develop confidence in my love for them and will know that I only want good for them.

 As I have considered my relationship with my sons, it makes it clear to me the relationship that God wants with me and with all the children he has created in the world.” 

Been there, through that and still maturing. Though I don’t have children of my own I have nephews and nieces. I’m 50 something and about 22 years old as a Christian,( still young and growing) I tried and and I can only hope and pray what I’ve shared with them when they where young and coming up would be pleasing in your eyes Lord and help them some how on their journey and relationship with you.

Again I wouldn’t mind having a man with a heart and knowledge like this running the show for a while, especially after what we’ve been through these past seven years and opposed to the “front runner” now. Wouldn’t it be a nice change?

God bless America and you!

Senator Ted Cruz knocks it out of the park.McConnell a “liar”. Wheres the peoples lobbyist.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticizes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for filing an amendment to the highway funding bill to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank and preventing senators from offering additional amendments by filling the amendment tree. He calls Senator McConnell’s actions “procedural abuse” and compares his tactics to those of now-Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) when he was majority leader. Watch the complete Senate session here: JULY 24, 2015 Senate Session  “I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie.” (C-SPAN)

“Senate Democrats shut down the government to protect Obamacare. It get’s worse: now they refuse to protect veterans.”

Have you figured it out yet? Do you believe “The Lame Stream Media” or are you interested in in truth?

Do some digging for you’re self. The house has sent at least 4 bills to the Harry Reid’s Senate to fund the government, all rejected and Obama says he’s not interested. My way or no way!

Harry Reid and Obama complain about something and claim the republicans want the government shut down and call them all kind of nasty names and accuse them of all sorts of things, acting like little kids. I’m going to take my ball and go home.

The House answers with bills to fund what they complain about or accuse the republican of doing and EVERY time Reid says NO and Obama says he will veto it.

So who is really responsible for the shut down?

Senate Democrats shut down the government to protect Obamacare. It get’s worse: now they refuse to protect veterans.

Senate Democrats shut down the government to protect Obamacare. It get’s worse: now they refuse to protect veterans.

“President Obama, Harry Reid and congressional Democrats continue to play politics. They are willing to actually oppose bills they claim to support — like funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs — in order to prolong a shutdown of their own creation.”

The truth is the Democrat-controlled Senate will stop at nothing to save Obamacare.

“Their cynical political strategy may play well at Democrat campaign events, but it only serves to reinforce what many Americans already knew: President Obama and his political allies care only about protecting a failed law that is hurting the country, not about protecting the people they’re supposed to represent.”

From FB this morning. Senator Ted Cruz

“We’ve got Republicans and Democrats in the House agreeing we should fund the VA. We have Republicans in the Senate and a Democratic President of the United States agreeing we should fund the VA. And sadly, we have Democrats in the Senate, a Majority Leader in the Senate, objecting to the VA being funded.”

Press Release of Senator Cruz

Friday, October 4, 2013WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released the following statement on the Senate’s refusal to take up House-passed continuing resolutions:

  “This morning, disability payments for wounded veterans would be fully funded if not for Harry Reid.

“This morning, our National Guard and reservists would be fully funded if not for Harry Reid.

“This morning, our national parks and war memorials would be open and fully funded if not for Harry Reid.

BTW, the “Media” keeps pushing all the NONE ESENTUAL people out of work. What some seven hundred thousand. The don’t mention a thing about the over 2 Million people still working for the government. If they are “None essential” why are we the taxpayers pay for them?

GOD bless you and America.

UPDATE 7 Minutes ago at 1229pm

Calling America.

Aren’t you sick and tired of the lies, the games. smoke and mirrors, gutter politics’?

Remember when it used to be about issues, respectful debate, integrity, principles, honor and the country?

Believe it or not for those that don’t remember it used to be like that.

I just found this site yesterday morning, never heard about it before. They look to be about as non partisan as you can be.

They don’t take money from politicians, special interest. All the work is done by volunteers from all sides.

Check this out from: Project Vote Smart .

It’s time, let’s take our country back. 2014 is a place to start. Don’t let them take us into the gutter any more, we are better then that. Let’s help the politicians out of the gutter.

They have all the info on the politicians. Just the fact’s, voting records, speeches just about anything you need to know about them, issues, voting record’s, you know like what they said and then actually did. PLEASE take a look at: Project Vote Smart .

Whether you’re democrat, republican liberal or conservative check them out.

The politicians don’t like it much. Their excuse is they don’t want to give their enemy ammunition. Excuse me. If you had a record to run on why would you not want the public to know about it. Isn’t that who you’re serving anyway?

Why would you not want what you stand for and you’re record out their?

That’s why there’s all the gutter politics now day’s. Lies, rumors, slander, attacking each other and their family’s and kids. Seriously, aren’t we better then that? I know we used to be. Political Courage Test Responses

What the heck is this about? From you’re own party no less. This is what these people have lowered us and America to.

A friend sent me this: PIN DROP

PIN DROP

Once upon a time when our politicians did not tend to apologize for our country’s prior actions, here’s a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our great country.

JFK’S
Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60’s when
DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO.

DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of

France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded,

“Does that include those who are buried here?”
DeGaulle
did not respond.

You
could have heard a pin drop.

When in England , at a fairly large conference,

Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury

if our plans for Iraq were just an example of
’empire building’ by George Bush.

He answered by saying,

“Over the years, the United States has sent many of
its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for

freedom beyond our borders.

The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return

is enough to bury those that did not return.”

You
could have heard a pin drop.

There was a conference in France

where a number of international engineers were taking part,

including French and American.

During a break, one of the French engineers came back into

the room saying,

“Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done?

He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia

to help the tsunami victims.

What does he intend to do,

bomb them?”

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly:

“Our carriers have three hospitals on board

that can treat several hundred people;

they are nuclear powered and can supply

emergency electrical power to shore facilities;

they have three cafeterias with

the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day,

they can produce several thousand gallons of

fresh water from sea water each day,

and they carry half a dozen helicopters for

use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck.

We have eleven such ships;

how many does France have?”

You
could have heard a pin drop.

A U.S. Navy Admiral

was attending a naval conference

that included Admirals from the

U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies

At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with

a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sippedtheir drinks,

but a French admiral suddenly complained that,

whereas Europeans learn many languages,

Americans learn only English.

He then asked,

“Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences

rather than speaking French?”

Without hesitating,

the American Admiral replied,

“Maybe it’s because the
Brit’s, Canadians, Aussie’s and Americans

arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak

German.”

You
could have heard a pin drop.

AND
THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE…

Robert Whiting,

an elderly gentleman of 83,

arrived in Paris by plane.

At French Customs,

he took a few minutes to locate his passport in

his carry on.

“You have been to France before, monsieur?”

the customs officer asked
sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting

admitted that he had been to France
previously.

“Then you should know enough

to have your passport ready.”

The American said,

“The last time I was here,

I didn’t have to show it.”

“Impossible..
Americans always have to show their passports on

arrival in France !”

The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look.

Then, he quietly explained,

”Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on

D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country,

I couldn’t find a single Frenchman
to show a passport to.”

You
could have heard a pin drop.

I am proud to be of this land — AMERICA

I am proud to be an American

I thought this was interest, from the same friend:

The year was 1947. Some of you will recall that on July 8, 1947, a little more than 65 years ago, numerous witnesses claim that an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO), with five aliens aboard crashed onto a sheep and mule ranch just outside Roswell, New Mexico.This is a well-known incident that many say has long been covered-up by the U.S. Air Force, as well as other Federal Agencies and Organizations. However, what you may NOT know is that in the month of April, year 1948, nine months after the historic day, the following people were born: Barrack Obama Sr. Albert A. Gore, Jr. Hillary Rodham, William J. Clinton, John F. Kerry, Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Charles E. Schumer, Barbara Boxer, Joe Biden. This is the obvious consequence of aliens breeding with sheep and jack-asses. I truly hope this bit of information clears up a lot of things for you. It certainly did for me. Now you can stop wondering why they support the bill to help all Illegal Aliens. 🙂

Ooops got to go Ted Cruz is Fila busting.

Let’s keep that border open and some headlines you may have missed.

Let’s keep that border open and secure like they tell us it is. While we are at it lets OK Amnesty too.

LORD knows we all like and want to keep things like this happening.

From THE OLD VET, Of the 500 ILLEGALS Caught in McAllen, Texas Since Monday Over 350 Are “Other Than Mexican” (OTM)

FTA:  “THE MONITOR    |   McALLEN — Stormy weather didn’t deter immigrants from illegally crossing the Rio Grande on Sunday, keeping local Border Patrol agents busy overnight.

By 6 a.m. Monday, local Border Patrol agents had detained about 500 people at the McAllen Station, said spokesman Enrique Mendiola. Agents classified nearly 350 people as “OTMs” — other than Mexicans,”

Let’s not forget,”OTM’s” also include people from Middle Eastern country’s like say Syria, Iran… We want to with open arms welcome these American loving people into our country to do and go where ever they want./s

Like Obamas foreign policy, scandals, Obamacare, everything’s OK. Nothing to see here, keep moving./s

Speaking of Obamacare, check these out. From: RIGHT SPEAK , Obama touted Cleveland Clinic forced to Slash Budget as the Reality of Obamacare approaches . FTA: “An Ohio clinic that was touted by Obama while he was speaking on health care
reform is now blaming ObamaCare after it was forced to cut $330 million from its budget.”

And from: Tea Party Tribune , Showing ‘Who’s Boss’ FTA: “Many House and Senate Republicans are furious with senators Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) for appearing to be “the only two Republicans opposed to the health care law when in fact Republicans were united for months against Obama and the Democrats in trying to head off the law in 2009 and still vehemently oppose it,” said the Associated Press.

Anyone with a functioning brainstem knows this to be false. Establishment Republicans have certainly cast symbolic votes to defund ObamaCare (at least 40) but have balked at forcing President Obama’s hand by giving him an ultimatum: kill ObamaCare or see a government shutdown.”

From CainTV , In absolutely awesome piece, Palin rips GOP defeatists who fear defunding ObamaCare

FTA: “We love Gov. Palin here, and this is exactly why. As Washington GOP insiders cower in fear over the efforts of people like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul – who actually want to fight this boondoggle – Palin lays out the real truth. For Republicans who insist the defunding of ObamaCare is unachievable, Palin exposes exactly why they think that: They expect to get beaten up by the media, and they’re afraid of that. If the House majority holds together and refuses to fund any particular thing, no money can be spent on it. That’s just a basic fact. If 218 House members refuse to fund ObamaCare, then funding ObamaCare is unachievable, no matter how much Obama, the Democrats and the media shriek about it.”

From: Breitbart , EXCLUSIVE: Palin — Bombs Away on Obamacare; Cruz Is over the Target

From: The Blaze , Harry Reid: Senate Will Not Pass Any Bill That Defunds Obamacare, Resistance Is ‘Futile’ .Hey wait a minute. I thought the Republicans wanted to shut down the Government. So, it’s really the Democrats? Hmmm, go figure./s

In Obamas continued policy of hypocrisy, Hypocritical Obama regime charged Army vet with treason for fighting alongside Syrian rebels. FTA: “In a move that reeks of hypocrisy and is dripping with irony, US prosecutors have reached a plea deal with Army veteran Eric Harroun, who had been fighting alongside the Syrian rebels against the Assad regime.  Back in March, Harroun had been arrested and charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a terrorist group.  After pleading guilty to a lesser charge dealing with exporting ammunition, he was sentenced to time served and released.”

“The irony and hypocrisy come from the fact that the groups he was fighting alongside are the very same ones that the Obama administration is supporting with weapons and supplies.  Does that mean the Obama regime can be charged with conspiracy to provide material support to a terrorist group?”

Did you see this one from: WND , Glenn Beck: Impeach Obama and GOP stars . FTA: “Media giant Glenn Beck is now calling for the impeachment of President Barack  Obama as well as some of the biggest names in the Republican Party for “arming  known terrorists.”

Beck is reacting to a White House announcement Monday that waives part of the  Arms Export Control Act to allow “non-lethal assistance” to rebels in Syria”

Want another one? From: Political Outcast , Obama Defies Congress And Keeps Immigration Position They Eliminated  FTA: “If you are keeping a list of impeachable charges against Barack Hussein Obama,  you may want to add this one to the list.  Congress passed a bill and Obama  signed it into law.  Then Obama defies the law he just signed.”

 

Immigration, Amnesty.From someone that did it the right way, the way we want it.

I watch this on The Blaze tonight and really enjoyed it!
This is the way it should be done.
What a inspiration, this is what America used to be like and should be like.

Speaking with Tara Setmayer, who was filling in for Beck, Rafael Cruz explained opposing the military dictatorship as a young man in Cuba.

“The revolution started in the high schools, in the universities,” he said. “It was very interesting because at that time a young, charismatic leadership rose up talking about hope and change — his name was Fidel Castro.”

State Sen. Wendy Davis launched a daylong filibuster last week that prevented the bill from passing a Bill that would protect women. She is a disgrace to women and their right to know the truth. She needs to take her urine bag and move to California.

This is a baby inside the womb at ONLY 12 weeks. We can speak out about human trafficking, equal rights for all yet there is a “political correctness” that tells us to “be quiet” when speaking out against the murder of babies in the womb. At CONCEPTION a baby has a soul. If abortion does not bother you than you either have not gotten the revelation or have something wrong within your heart. Speak out against the murder of God’s precious creations! Don’t be afraid to hurt someones feelings…What does God want you to do?

A liberal has just got to love this one. The truth is always hard for them to handle.
Florence Johnson originally shared: 
From The Blacksphere:
“Exact quote from James Carville. Tell this to EVERY Democrat you know!
“Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology.
The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough si
lage and they come running. That’s why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.
Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don’t have a clue as to political reality.
What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.
The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you’re smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That’s why I’m a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
