The Giver, the Movie, Out on Disc, Suggested

GiverCharacterMap

It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened. And so the story beings. Written two decades ago, it has been called the first dystopian novel for youths, something notable to Gulag Bound.  While it was still fresh on the scene, Jeff Bridges began seeking to make a movie of it, at first hoping his father Lloyd could play its elder lead. Sixteen years later he received that role, … [Read more...]

Seriously? You Expect Me to be Thankful for This?

Obama-Garden-Delights-Scandals_thumb

PolitiJim's Rants for Reasonable People As I write this, I’m unable to be with my family today, have numerous personal struggles, and have friends who are struggling to eat – much less walk in the fullness of their calling and careers. On the national front, we see not only record poverty and unemployment, but - perhaps far worse - a poverty of character and moral compass that we as a nation used to be able … [Read more...]

Twitter’s Homofascist Crackdown & a Tale of 2 Hashtags: #4Huston5 #HustonWeHaveAProblem

Houston-Problem.crop

Follow-up to "Pastors Ordered to Submit Sermons to Government in Houston; Degeneracy Brings Authoritarianism" The hashtag #4Huston5 is what some of us are using now in Twitter and #HustonWeHaveAProblem is what Twitter was blocking, something exposed in the following D.C. Caller article (linked). San Francisco's own Twitter seems to be dressing up in the flamiers' black leather (flamers' as in the new media … [Read more...]

David Limbaugh Defends Christ

Presented on what some are honoring as Religious Freedom Day (not the U.S. President's traditionally proclaimed day of the same name, which commemorates the Virginia General Assembly's adoption of their Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, on January 16th, 1786).  The American Family Association is producing live events today; also presenting free of charge this week, viewings of their documentary "A Time to … [Read more...]

Is America’s Solution Found by Republicans Learning from Young Libertarians?

Ripon-Schoolhouse-300w

The Sovereignty Campaign (SovCam.org) Do Republicans need to listen to more libertarian-oriented millennials? Definitely. Everyone who makes sense needs to listen to everyone else who does. But have libertarians learned something new, missing in America's founding and history, something ignored by our founders, or for that matter those original Republicans who met in that little white schoolhouse in Ripon, … [Read more...]

Islam’s Rich ‘Part of America’s History’

Inscription on Obama's ring

It is not often one feels compelled to post an anonymous email in Gulag Bound. Today is an exception. Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: "I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America's history."  An American Citizen's Response Dear Mr. Obama: Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians. Were … [Read more...]

Lloyd Marcus: Joe Biden is a Vile Little Man

joebiden

By: Lloyd Marcus Words can not express my disdain for the reprehensible behavior of VP Joe Biden and his Democrat co-conspirators. At a gathering of mostly black civil rights leaders Biden strategically launched a nasty false narrative for the sole propose of ginning up racial hate and division. Republicans are requesting that Americans show an ID to vote, which is only common sense. This vile little man, Joe … [Read more...]

Future Americans Will Ask: Why Didn’t Congress Impeach Obama When it Could?

Diana West

By: Diana West How will future generations look back on our gravest national emergency of all time? And how will they regard what their forebears didn’t do about it? This will include what we didn’t do about border nullification, which collapsed the U.S. as a sovereign nation. What we didn’t do about the alignment of our foreign policy with that of jihad movements, which meant the end of liberty, also life … [Read more...]

UPDATE: Christian Ministries Shut-Out by Obama & DHS from Aiding Alien Minors Pushed into America

refugeecamps

The Obamunists hardly want actual Christian relief organizations interfering with their planned and executed, Marxofascist disruption, at these hideously abused children's expense.

Four Stages of National Decline; Two Prophetic Offers of Redemption in America

elevator

A friend, PolitiJim, familiar to longstanding readers of the Bound, just referred this brief, newly released message from Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias. He describes the four successive conditions cited by God for judging His nation of Israel, resulting in its invasion by Babylon. You may wish to listen to "Four Stages of a Nation in Decline," but to whet the hearing, they are: ancestral disappointments … [Read more...]

D-Day as it Happened Seventy Years Ago, Today

  Looking into a few key items about D-Day, seventy years ago today, I thought it would be good to tie a few together, here.   [View the story "D-Day, a week after Memorial Day" on Storify]   Today, we are in a much more quietized war, but a war in our own land, for the very survival of our nation. How many even know?   Edit: … [Read more...]

‘Why I’m Considering Quitting,’ Ann Barnhardt

annbarnhardtbiz

Even the most dynamic of us feels it. We get to where we all feel it. The more we learn how wrong things really are... and the more we see how obdurately unknowledgeable-to-quasiknowledgeable, and placated even patriotic Americans on the whole are arrayed, the more we grieve. God save us. With your indulgence though, after her confession, I'll place one further comment. -- AW Ann Barnhardt This is getting to feel … [Read more...]

2014: The Resurgence of the Tea Party

Tea Party Activists Hold Tax Day Rally In Washington

By: Lloyd Marcus It is not looking good for the Tea Party and our efforts to restore America in 2014. The Obama Administration, mainstream media, major liberal advocacy groups and the GOP establishment have launched an extremely well-funded war against us. http://bit.ly/1cVTDpW So, how do we compete? Answer: We do what we did in 2010. The Bible says one will put a thousand to flight, but two will put … [Read more...]

How Pharisaical FDR Used ‘Neighborliness’ to Sell Despotism at Christmas

Jesus-moneychangers

One can read about it succinctly in The Nation (where the Cloward-Piven plan of devastating America for Marxism was also articulated). "The spirit of neighborliness" became Franklin Roosevelt's pretext in Christmastime chats, for government racketeering, a plague that robs us of our means to be neighborly. The extortion of money, that is, from those with resources, to build the power of those who use their gains … [Read more...]

The Silencing of the Ducks

phil1

NoisyRoom.net Hat Tip: BB I did not start viewing Duck Dynasty until a few months ago. It has since become our favorite show and we can't get enough of it. Christian values, real people, guns and hunting - what's not to love? But it would seem that being a Christian and espousing your beliefs in America is now becoming ever more dangerous. As RedState pointed out, ultimately you will care and you will have to … [Read more...]

Part of an Argument with a Duped Welfare State Christian

borg-regenerator

Here is my characterization of just a little bit of a recurring argument (wait, recurring bad dream, no, argument, darn) that I've had with a fellow Christian, who enjoys tuning into MSNBC like one of the Borg hive stepping into his regeneration chamber. XX: My politics are from the Bible. We're supposed to take care of the poor. AW: Care for the poor is one reason government is supposed to protect our freedom and … [Read more...]

Video Reply to Obamunist Oprah + Mychal Massie + Niger Innis & Booker T. Washington Weighs In

Washington-Booker-race-biz

This is the 150th anniversary of the delivery of the Gettysburg Address, by which Abraham Lincoln commemorated those Americans who fought and died to preserve our nation, free its slaves, and pass it along to us, so we can do the same. And today, we need to try to free America's slaves to collectivism - a different kind of slavery. Maslow's hierarchy of needs meeting B.F. Skinner's operant conditioning, and … [Read more...]

Letting Oprah & Obama Keep You Collectivist Slaves on the Racist Abortion Plantation?

Hey blacks! Here! - in this country! You! Blacks! "You people!" - if that is how you choose to see yourselves. Are you Americans, or what? When are most black folk in America going to wake up and understand that by and large, Americans don't care. We don't care about your being black.

Hannah Arendt’s Warning: the Violence of Hive-Mindedness, Groupthink

Arendt-Hannah

Hannah Arendt is one of the best of 20th Century America's imported political philosophers, historians, and brooders of contemporary society. I'd recommend her over Ayn Rand for instance, most days of the week. And for her salience, she is being assailed by one of our Columbia University-ish "thought leaders." No surprise there. The matter of contention in this instance is, from one of Arendt's books, that the … [Read more...]

Veterans Day Heroes

soldier-statute-crop

I am saddened this Veterans Day as I think about the freedoms we are losing in this country because of the Administration that is currently in the White House.  We are losing freedoms that our military veterans have valiantly fought and defended for more than two hundred years so that all in this country could remain free. It is especially heartbreaking to see how this Administration has and is continuing to … [Read more...]

Another Attack on SEALs: Obama Hates the Rattlesnake

SEAL-Gadsden-patch

Yesterday, I read that the Obama Administration has ordered the Navy Seals to remove the “Navy Jack” or the “don’t tread on me” flag from their uniforms.  The Navy Jack has been a symbol of the U.S. Navy for over two centuries. It was Benjamin Franklin who first used the symbol of a rattlesnake in 1751 to make a point.  During this time, Great Britain was sending their criminals to America and it was Franklin who … [Read more...]

Senator Mike Lee for Vice President in 2016?

Lee-Mike-official-photo

I was tweeting with someone earlier today on Twitter and the subject came around to the 2016 elections.  Both of us agreed that Republican Senator Ted Cruz from Texas would make an excellent choice for the presidential candidate.   I then suggested Republican Senator Mike Lee from Utah as his vice-presidential running mate. After tweeting that out, I decided to do a little investigative work into his background so … [Read more...]

Graphic of the Moment: Tea or Kool-Aid, Which One are You Drinking?

Kool-aid-tea-which-are-you-drinking

Here is an anti-syllogism for you. A syllogism is a tool of logic organized: first premise, second premise, conclusion. A logical syllogism does not go like this: 1. Obamacare is being shown more and more, to be the (fascist) train wreck it is, devastating to Americans trying to become self-sufficient. 2. Tea Party patriots, intent upon saving America from its devastation and unconstitutional, socialist … [Read more...]

The Mirror Image of Bill Ayers and a Modern Patriot

NoisyRoom.net By: Nelson Abdullah Conscience of a Conservative George Orwell's predictions in 1984, which he wrote in 1949, were 30 years too soon. His other predictions in the Animal Farm have already come to pass. The writing on the barn wall in that famous post war story about the threat of communism is ringing as true today as when Orwell wrote: "All animals are created equally." but the pigs changed it to … [Read more...]

Abusing the Bible for Your Despotic Desires is Unhealthy for You, Sojourners

James Wallis at World Economic Forum, Davos, 2009, Wikipedia photo

  Like Barack Obama, Sojourners' founder, James Wallis speaks of some of his his past associations with Marxists and Marxism. And like Obama, but unlike Thomas Sowell, Joseph Farah, Mavin Olasky, and so many others, he fails to refute it all, now. Why? Very apparently, because like Obama, Wallis' Marxist methodology continues. Finding Sojourners up to their redistributive evils in Facebook today, I … [Read more...]

Obama Violating Military’s First Amendment Rights? Playing Games with Church Closure?

members_of_the_us_military_speech

Cross-posted at Stand for the Truth By now, most Americans are  familiar with the recent government shutdown.  Who is to blame for the shutdown is hotly debated by the mainstream media and both the Republicans and Democrats in Congress.  It has been impossible to turn on the television without witnessing the “mudslinging” between the parties as to who is at fault. As a result of the government shutdown, there … [Read more...]
