The Wise Man?

Ecc 10:2 ESV  A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right, but a fool’s heart to the left. It seems to me that we do see this in our own day, that the wise man is one who thinks things through and comes to a conclusion based on what he or she knows. I see so many of our politicians and bureaucrats sounding off without knowing what they are talking about. I see and hear so many of these people spouting nonsense, or speaking about what can or cannot be done by the President, and then go and put out the idea that they can pass legislation that will remove the President because they don’t like what he does or says. I think they ought to impeach themselves, since they seem to be committing treason against this nation as they rip us apart.
I hear these so called representatives of the people telling those who will listen to them that they ought to confront and force the members of the Presidents cabinet out of the public square. Actually saying that these folks are not to be allowed a dinner in a restaurant, simply because they work for the President of the United States. There are also those who have stated that they wish the President was taken out, a veiled threat to assassinate the President.
These who are the loudest of course are members of the House and Senate, threatening all sorts of vileness and then when a congressperson is shot at a baseball practice by a Democrat partisan, they disavow their complicity in this action. Yet the louder and more strident these politicians become the closer we get to complete anarchy. They say that those who are conservative are everything vile they can throw at us. From hate monger to homophobe, to racist, and a dozen or so other names they can conjure up. What happens when a person wearing a T-Shirt or a cap that says they support the President? They are attacked, and physically assaulted. I saw an article a couple of days ago about a Trump supporter who went to a rock concert, and one of the band members jumped off the stage and assaulted him.
Then we have this from Maxine Waters, congressperson from California. At a speech she was giving a few days ago, impeach Trump, impeach Trump. She said it over and over again, of course the partisan crowd went wild. She is also the one that started this idea of not allowing members of the cabinet have a moments peace, harassment is to be meted out whenever they can be seen anywhere.
Of course we also have the disgraced head of the CIA, Brennan, accusing the President of Treason, with absolutely no proof to be found anywhere. He lied to Congress about spying on members of the Senate Intelligence Committee. His CIA did just that, and got caught at it too, but he lied about it when asked by Sen. Diane Feinstein. His security clearance should have been pulled right then and there. Of course he is also the one who voted for a member of the Communist Party of the US for President of the USA. He never should have had a clearance to begin with.
So with all these attacks from the left against the POTUS, we have to ask who is the wise man and who is the fool? From where I sit, it appears to me that these Democrats who are trying to smear the President at every opportunity, are pretty much the fools. I hear all the calls for impeachment, the calls that say the President cannot do this or that, it is against the Constitution and he does not have the power to do what he is doing.
I truly begin to believe that these Demo(n)crats have never read the document they have sworn to uphold and defend. They act like the Constitution really doesn’t matter as long as they get their way. The President is acting within his enumerated powers, and if he says you cannot have a Security clearance for your gross negligence of tongue, you don’t have it anymore. When I was an E-6 on active duty I had a Security Clearance, because I handled stuff that was classified as a part of my job. When I became a civilian, I no longer had that clearance, because it was not a part of my civilian occupation. I was no longer in the military. It is high time that all those who held clearances and are no longer in government employment, to lose those clearances. This is a matter of National Security.
So the wise man seems to be the one that everybody is trying to destroy, and those who are making unfounded accusations are the fools on the left. What do you think?

Facism is alive and well in the USA

I hear a lot about how fascism is something that is right wing in its work, but I think it is time that people realize that the fascists are from the left. Not only from the left but from the Socialist Left. Here is the truth about the Fascists of the past.
“Nazi organization
Written By:

The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica

See Article History
Alternative Titles: Braunhemden, Brownshirts, Storm Troopers, Sturmabteilung, Sturmtruppen

SA, abbreviation of Sturmabteilung (German: “Assault Division”), byname Storm Troopers or Brownshirts, German Sturmtruppen or Braunhemden, in the German Nazi Party, a paramilitary organization whose methods of violent intimidation played a key role in Adolf Hitler’s rise to power.

The SA was founded in Munich by Hitler in 1921 out of various roughneck elements that had attached themselves to the fledgling Nazi movement. It drew its early membership largely from the Freikorps (Free Corps), armed freebooter groups, made up largely of ex-soldiers, that battled leftists in the streets in the early days of the Weimar Republic. Outfitted in brown uniforms after the fashion of Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Blackshirts in Italy, the SA men protected party meetings, marched in Nazi rallies, and physically assaulted political opponents. Temporarily in disarray after the failure of Hitler’s Munich Putsch in 1923, the SA was reorganized in 1925 and soon resumed its violent ways, intimidating voters in national and local elections. From January 1931 it was headed by Ernst Röhm, who harboured radical anticapitalist notions and dreamed of building the SA into Germany’s main military force. Under Röhm SA membership, swelled from the ranks of the Great Depression’s unemployed, grew to 400,000 by 1932 and to perhaps 2,000,000—20 times the size of the regular army—by the time that Hitler came to power in 1933.”

Note that the Nazi party was called the National Socialist party, and was extreme left not right. Hitler was not a conservative he was just a step short of a Communist. The can be said of the Italians under Mussolini, his black shirts were the Italian version of the Brown shirts under Hitler.

Today we have a group calling themselves antifa, “Anti Fascists”, yet they are the ones dressed in black, wearing masks and carrying weapons, from baseball bats to guns. They are the brown shirts of the “Democratic Socialists” which is the Demoncratic party. I call them Demoncrats simply because they have become EVIL, they serve hatred, and refuse to allow anyone to voice any opposition to their foul invective.

Listen to these representatives of the party, Maxine Waters wants her followers to attack any conservative/republican they see in any location.
Here is a report in the Daily Wire from this morning:
“On Monday, Turning Point USA head Charlie Kirk and communications director Candace Owens were sitting at a restaurant in Philadelphia when members of a Leftist activist group spotted them through the window. Within minutes, Kirk told Daily Wire, 20-30 of these rabble-rousers mobilized, and proceeded to harass Kirk and Owens inside the restaurant before attacking them outside. Police were required to separate the mob from Kirk and Owens.” You can find the entire report with video here: https://www.dailywire.com/news/34084/watch-leftist-mob-screams-throws-drink-tpusas-ben-shapiro?utm_source=shapironewsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=080618-news&utm_campaign=position1

Ocasio-Cortez, winner in her congressional district in NY. She wants to raise taxes, so she can finance single payer health care, which will cost about 32 Trillion dollars. Where is that cost going to come from? From y’all, she will take back the tax cuts and add more taxes on top of them. You thought Obama Care was costly, wait to see what happens if Bernie and his henchpersons get into office.

If we do not stop this “Democratic Socialist” Party now, it will eat our lunch and destroy the United States of America, we will begin to look like Venezuela in a very short period of time. Pelosi/Schumer are talking about this as if it is a fact that cannot be stopped. One of the first moves of these people will be articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, whom they hate with an absolute fire in their bellies to destroy him and the conservative movement in this country.

It is up to you to stop this!!!!

July 4th Sermon

The following was delivered at Frontier Baptist Church in Brackettville TX by our Pastor Ned Sitzes on July 1st.


It is needful for our nation to remember who we are, and how we got here. It is shameful that we are removing our history and if we continue we will forget the stuff that made this country great. Yes we have some terrible things in our history, we need to remember them so we will not repeat them. Let us move forward together as one people, one nation under God.

Fascism rises again

I am amazed, the Democrats are becoming absolutely unhinged, and with Maxine Waters calling on her followers to get out and get in peoples faces, raise mobs to attack the members of the current cabinet of President Trump, this is what the Brown Shirts in Germany and the Black Shirts in Italy did in the 1930’s to their political enemies. The frightening thing in all of this is we have already had one Republican House Member almost killed by a leftist fanatic. A year ago Steve Scalise was shot and almost killed by a fanatic who had been juiced up by the hateful rhetoric of the Democrats.

Now we see the rhetoric ratcheting up again, we see Sarah Sanders told to leave a restaurant because she works for President Bush, the Secretary of Homeland Security harassed at a Restaurant in Washington D. C. and then even worse these people show up at her home to protest and threaten.

I am old enough to remember that when there was something that the political parties were upset about, they worked it out in the halls of Congress. There was civil debate, in both houses. Now, not so much, people like Kamala Harris, Maxine Waters, and others in the Democratic Party, use VERY harsh language against their opponents. We even see people at award shows, throwing F bombs at the President, so-called comedians, using language that should not be used in any polite society to refer to the other side. We are no longer a polite society, we are heading for what I am very much afraid is going to be a not so civil war in this nation. The rhetoric seems deliberately set to separate us into tribal groups so that the brown and the black and the white along with the Christians, Muslims, and other religious groups, are all separated, and can then commence trying to kill each other. That is what the Brown Shirts, and Black Shirts did in the late 1920’s and 1930’s. That is how Mussolini and Hitler were able to become the leaders of Italy and Germany.

If we do not ratchet back on the rhetoric, things will get worse and worse and our nation will not be a nation any longer. It will destroy itself from within. I see a very bleak future for our nation, and I am not a happy person in the face of what I see coming. The Demons are out amongst our people, and we are rapidly reaching a point of no return.

I find it exceedingly interesting to see the hatred in our society, even many so-called Christian leaders are becoming hateful persons. Some even going so far as to curse other leaders in other denominations for confessing that the Bible is the one book that all people should read because it tells the truth about relationships. There are two wonderful passages in the Bible that more people do need to read, especially in light of the horrific things that are happening in our world today.

Here is the first: Acts 2:42-46 ESV  And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.  (43)  And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.  (44)  And all who believed were together and had all things in common.  (45)  And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.  (46)  And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,

The next is Jesus speaking to a lawyer/teacher of the Scriptures:
Luke 10:25-27 ESV  And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”  (26)  He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?”  (27)  And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus then says: Luke 10:28  And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” 

I grew up in an integrated neighborhood in New York City, we never worried about ethnicity, we were more concerned about how well you could play stickball, baseball, football, etc. It made no difference what your color or national origin was we were all friends. We played games, we went to school together, and we really enjoyed being with each other. Today, it seems that we have become almost tribal in the way we live and work. The hatred that is now rampant in our streets is a disgrace, this nation was built on certain principles. We all wanted to succeed in life but we also wanted our friends to succeed as well. Now it seems we want those others to fail at life, we even work hard to make sure they will fail.

I remember when my brother came home from the Army, he was told that he was only 10% disabled so he would not be eligible for any benefits other than for that bad hand. He went to our congressperson, a Democrat and that guy went to bat for him and he was upped to 25% disabled, due to the military screwing up his surgery. Later we found out he was also exposed to Agent Orange, but that is a whole different topic. The point is that in those days our politicians worked for us, and it made no difference whether you voted for them or not. We all lived in the same country and we needed that country to be united. We were one people, not many different people living in the same country.

Today it seems we are tribes living in the same country but with different ideas about who we are and whether we want to associate with one another. I see it in many ways as I go through my daily routines. I hear the terrible things said by Democrats about our President, I hear the terrible things said about Christian beliefs by TV personalities and of course I hear that we cannot take money away from Planned Parenthood because they use it for family planning. I’m sorry if I don’t believe that, I note that the only thing they do these days is abortions. I have heard that only one groups lives matter, yet abortions are decimating the Black Community and I have heard none of them saying that those lives matter.

I hear people blaming the NRA for school shootings, yet the NRA wants to insure that our children are protected, not killed. I hear people saying that our children must learn about sex at school, and that some of what they are learning is perversion of the action rather than telling the truth about how disease is spread in the very activity that is talked about. I have read about a school board who wants to teach our kids that there is no such thing as biological sex. In other words we are all born neutral and get to choose our own sex as we get older. I seem to remember reading that all human life has sprung from one female person. That there must be a male and female to produce human children. Oh and of course there is that DNA thing that tells your body what goes where, and what sex you are at birth.

I notice these people running around looking very tribal, tattoos and nose rings, diamond studs through their lips, and other strange things. I note that the “children” are now running the schools, they must be since they decided to go out and protest about guns all across the country, and no one says anything against this because you can’t say anything against a legitimate grievance that the “children” have. I have placed the word children in quotes simply because they are being used by the socialists in our society, they think that they know what they are talking about, but the truth is they have been indoctrinated by the socialists who are running our education system from Kindergarten through University.

The President talks about making America Great Again, but the truth is it is a long and hard climb for the country to escape from the slime that the socialists have made of our nation. The Democrats have become the Socialist Party, the Republicans are still trying to figure out who they are, conservative, liberal, or somewhere else on the spectrum. Neither of them care one whit about the Constitution upon which this nation was formed, they have forgotten we are not a Democracy we are a Constitutional Republic, that our laws are built from the knowledge of the founders who believed in the Christian faith and the ideals that were a part of that faith. Both groups want one thing and that is power.

Well this is a bit longer than I thought it would be, but I am tired of the hatred and the foolishness of our country. We are men and women, we need to learn once more to respect each other and to love one another, so that we may live in peace and harmony and so we will then be able to Make our Nation Great again, and keep it that way.

WAKE UP AMERICA, time is short, and there is very little time left to find the right path to take.

Awakening?
April 21, 2018, 10:55 am

In the Bible we find these words: 2Ch 7:14 ESV  if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

In the last 50 years, our nation has gone from a nation of people who recognized that there was a God, that Jesus Christ had lived and died that people could come before the throne of grace and be forgiven for their sins. Now our land is full of hate for this or that group, hate for authority, hate for – you name it, killing is a pastime for many in our society. Gangs run rampant in many parts of our nation, and of course our political institutions are increasingly impotent.

In the history of our nation, many revivals have come and changed the course of our nation. Some have been called Awakenings, and they have swept across the land. As people were caught up in these revivals, our nation moved in different directions, we were people of Christ – Christians if you will. However, today, we have slid into an abyss of immorality, degradation, and hatred for Christ. We no longer see Churches growing, we see them in decline. We also see many denominations deciding that they will become relevant by becoming worldly. The United Methodist Church, has a married Lesbian Bishop, married of course to another Lesbian. The high court of the Church found that she could not be a bishop, and ordered her removal, the jurisdiction she is serving in said NO. The UMC now has given in to that jurisdiction and they continue their slide into apostasy. Of course this is not new, it is a part of the growing apostasy within the mainline denominations. All of them now celebrate abortion as something to be blessed by many of the pastors and even bishops, as well as homosexuality. The Episcopal has a “gay” Bishop.

So our society will not condemn Muslim Jihadists who kill and maim innocent people, but will claim that Christians need to shut up and do as hollywood directs. Even the Vice President of the United States has been ridiculed for believing in Jesus Christ as Lord of his life, and that he also hears God speaking to him in his prayer time. I too have conversations with my Lord and Savior, and I for one am glad to hear Vice President Pence speak of his prayer time conversations with the Lord.

In Psalm 85 the psalmist says this: Psa 85:6 ESV  Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? This should be the cry of those of us who still believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. An Awakening or Revival is sorely needed in this time of chaos. A time when children can walk out of school and parents and teachers and Lawyers think it is just fine for them to protest against, whatever they want to protest. These kids are being used by those who hate, the NRA, or the Police, or, whatever the group de jour may be.

We also have a political party who is trying to sue the Republicans, the President, Julian Assange and Wikileaks, and of course the Russians, for somehow colluding with each other to defeat Hillary Clinton in the last Presidential election. Of course the evidence to the contrary is ignored. Hatred again has blinded them to their own culpability in the chaos into which our nation is plummeting.

It is time, if you are one who still believes that Jesus Christ is Lord, I pray that you will join me in praying for Awakening/Revival. If the people who are called by the name Christ are not willing to stand up and cry out to the Lord, then our nation is lost. As the Apostle Paul says: Eph 5:15-21 ESV  Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,  (16)  making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.  (17)  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.  (18)  And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit,  (19)  addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,  (20)  giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,  (21)  submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

And again as I started this missive: 2Ch 7:14 ESV if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. If we do nothing, then Satan wins and this country will become a wasteland, because our God will not be mocked. Gal 6:7-8 ESV  Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.  (8)  For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Choose today, will you too follow the ways of the world to your own damnation, or will you fall on your knees in supplication to our Lord and Savior, prayer for revival is sorely needed. Your choice, hell awaits all who will choose Satan over Christ.

Love your neighbor?

As a Christian I try to practice the teaching of Jesus Christ in my daily life. In a conversation with a lawyer (a religious lawyer), one who studied the Law as found in the Jewish Scriptures. The passage is found in the gospel of Luke:
Luk 10:25-27 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (26) He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” (27) And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” (English Standard Version)
Jesus then answered him that he had spoken correctly and should do as the law required. The Lawyer asked him, “Who is my neighbor”. Jesus then told a story about a man who had been left for dead on a road side by robbers. A priest walked on the road and saw the man lying there and crossed over to the other side so as not to touch the possibly dead man and become unclean. A Levite then came by also a form of priest, somewhat like the deacons in many churches, he too passed by on the other side.

Then along came a Samaritan, seeing the man he went to him, bandaged him as best he could and cleaned out the wounds. Put the man on his animal and took him to an inn. The next day as he was leaving, he handed the innkeeper a goodly sum of money and asked him to take care of the man, anything more that he had to do above the amount that he was given, the Samaritan said he would pay upon his return.

Now we must understand that Samaritans were hated by Jewish people and would normally have nothing to do with them. Jesus asked the Lawyer who was the one who was neighbor to the injured man. The Lawyer replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” He could not just say the Samaritan, they were lower than any Jewish person. He did however realize that Jesus was teaching him that all people are our neighbors.

Since we have removed God from our normal day, no more prayer in schools, no more Bible reading, God is no longer a part of our daily lives in the greater world in which we live. We now have 60 million dead babies, we have school shootings, we have gang violence, drugs are pervasive in our society, we have sexual promiscuity, with children having children, divorce rates have skyrocketed, and marriage is no longer something that is revered.

Evil is rampant in our society, and yet the government says they can solve this problem by just removing guns from law abiding citizens. Problem, then only criminals will be armed, police are armed but cannot come to your aid before you are killed by those criminals. Police are valiant men and women but they cannot stop a crime from happening, they can only react to the crime that has happened. It is my belief that we need to allow for teachers who are licensed concealed carriers to carry on campus, but it is also necessary that we rid ourselves of the “politically correct” crowd in our midst and wake up to the reality of the need for God to be a part of our every day lives.

If God is allowed back into our public square then the teaching of Jesus, of things like “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Blessed are the peacemakers” will be taught and become a part of our very lives again. We also need to speak up when we see something that seems out of place in our neighborhood, to help avert a suicide, or murder. I know that growing up in New York City, I do not remember teen suicides, or death and destruction on every street. I also don’t remember the hatred I see today in our nation. I grew up in an integrated neighborhood, we played baseball, football, basketball together, there was no thought about black or white, just who was the best pitcher or quarterback. We fought with each other, but it was verbal, very rare was it a fist fight.

We had bullies, but we took care of that too, we stuck together and did what was necessary to take care of one another. We loved our neighbors, even the two German kids on the street, (Joke) we were German, Italian, Irish and African. We did not hyphenate our ethnicity, we did not need to, we were and are Americans. Ethnicity did not make any difference. I blame the government, liberal professors, and lawyers for the mess we are in today. We need more of Christ and less of division in our nation, because we are in the midst of destroying this Republic in which we live. Remember I said Republic, not democracy.

I cannot in good conscience ask God to bless America, for we no longer bless God which we used to do regularly. Our nation is now in the midst of total breakdown, and if we continue on this path we shall end up in groups and perhaps it will be another civil war, and this one will destroy our republic.
