The Middle-Class; the Poor; the Elderly; Children; they deserve better than what Romney, Ryan and the Republicans would do them, again!

Just as a Rabbit cannot explain speed to a turtle, the extremists cannot decipherer the truth! – Romney – Ryan – Republicans; they don’t just play loose with the truth, “they tell bold face lies in the form of RED-MEAT,” permeating it to not all but some who are too full of hate; dumb or are still embedded with racism for which the Media would never acknowledge.

 

I am no racist, but if I would state that racism doesn’t exist, “I would be telling a bold face lie,” because, I don’t claim to be the smartest man in the world, but having been subjected to racism and discrimination because of my heritage and my name, I am living proof that people in all societies all over the world, are intertwined and entwined in some form of racism and discrimination.

 

One can talk about hard times but you would have to “actually live in hard times,” to truly appreciate the meaning of “hard times.” It is the same with “Starvation,” you can make claim to comprehend “Starvation,” but, you would have to experience “Starvation,” to know how it feels.

 

Make no mistake, there is a wide river between being hungry and starving and the latter would break the strongest person, after three or more days of “having nothing to eat!” Believe me, I know!

 

By all account I should be following the Republicans because my income fits in with their agenda, but the reason why I could never be part of that group is simple.

 

I have lived hard times; I have starved; I was ill and couldn’t get medical help, so despite having lifted out of that dungeon by the grace of God and my willingness to rise out of that misery, my heart pains me to see just how difficult life is for so many, not only in America, but around the world!

Condoleezza Rice, without any sense of regret or shame you stood at the 2012 Republican Convention blaming President Obama for “leading from behind.” At least he is leading, but from where did you all lead.

You lied to the American people in 2001

And you have lied to them again in 2012

 

Subsequent to the devastating attack on September 11, 2001; you lied to the American People when you were asked as to whether or not the Bush Administration had any foreknowledge of threats by Al Qaeda, to use Air Craft as weapons against the United States. You flatly denied of any such information.

 

The National Intelligence Estimate dated August 6, 2001 had explicit threats, but, you and the rest of Bush’s gang were too arrogant to pay attention to anything of significance until after the catastrophe.

 

On January 25, 2001, the head of America’s Counter Terrorism Unit ask to have an urgent meeting with you precisely about the dangers we faced from Al Qaeda, but, that meeting never took place until ONE WEEK prior to the 9/11 attack.

 

You and the people you follow can throw read meat to the idiots who hasn’t a clue of which is up, but, there are people who do not deal in hyperboles, they deal with facts. And the facts are that had it not been for legal action by the Media that filed litigation “Under the Freedom of Information Act,” we would have never seen the August 6, 2001 NIE (National Intelligence Report).

 

At least the four people in the image with you had the better sense “not to show up at the Convention;” it is amazing that you did. Harry Bellefonte was right about you when he refused to attend the Ceremony for his Civil Rights Achievement, solely because you were going to be the Keynote Speaker.

Trying to explain and or convince the Hard-Right Republicans; “truth, facts and reality,” is the same as “a Rabbit trying to explain speed to a Turtle.”

Following in the footsteps of Mitt Romney’s campaign, rarely have so many convention speeches been based on such shaky foundations and the lies and distortion continues and will continue until November 6, 2012 and thereafter.

 

Mitt Romney and The Republican Clan haven’t only been dishonest in distorting President Obama’s speech on “You didn’t build it,” verbally, they have resorted to actually “editing” the Video, and Mrs. Ann Romney and Governor Chris Christie insistence about “you can Trust Mitt to tell you the truth,” right along with God, Patriotism and no one ever asked for Mitt’s Birth Certificate,” is self evident of how badly the Republicans have fallen from grace over the years.

 

This is what the President actually said:

 

“Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.

 

Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”

 

In another campaign season, the fact that the opposition edited the president’s voice to say something he didn’t say would be regarded as alarming by the media, however, this election it is just another day on the campaign trail.

 

The three businessmen the Republicans found who claims that the President insulted them “WITH YOU DIDN’T BUILD IT,” maybe the only three businessmen in America who have never made use of the interstate highway system, an Airport or the Internet, never benefited from farm price supports or a government-backed student loan, or never enjoyed a business-related tax break.

 

In the final analysis, to feel ashamed one has to possess conscience and in that regard, not all, but most Republicans are “morally bankrupt!”

Ann Romney: Your illnesses and your recovery, use it as a blessing and not for self-gain, I know, I am a Cancer survivor and woke up from a Coma!

I would never attempt to speak for God but I do express my own opinion and that is, when we fall to illnesses and face daunting odds but yet live, God gives us that special blessings to pass on to others for His Glory and not for our self gain.

 

Whether or not that gain is for money, position, power, I think it doesn’t sit well with our Lord who paid the ultimate price for our redemption. I faced odds that in accordance with the best medical that money could pay for, I was never going to live. According to the Doctors, the root of my cancer was in the marrow in my spinal cord and without a “marrow transplant,” there wasn’t any hope for me.

Chris Christie to deliver the Republican “WEIGHTY” Keynote Address…

Totally ignoring the Bush era that brought us nothing but pain and misery, Chris Christie and Mitt Romney are indivisible, same as the other hypocritical Republicans that do not accept any responsibility for the suffering permeated by Bush and the Republicans from Policies that created an Orwellian Terror State and almost bankrupted our Nation.

 

Somehow they believe that “if they lie long enough and big enough, the lies would become truth!” What is strikingly amazing is that so many Americans have forgotten so quickly why America is in the predicament that we are in, blaming Obama for all that ails them.

 

Our present problems didn’t happen in the past  three and one half years, it began three decades ago when the Republican Greek – “god,” Ronald Reagan, began deregulations and initiated the quest to break the Unions. The Unions that created “collective” bargaining power is what created the Middle-Class and it is the Middle-Class that has been the back-bone and the very strength that kept our Nation strong.

 

If big tax cuts that benefits the rich was the answer to creating jobs, then why after eleven years of the existence of the Bush’s two humongous Tax Cuts, the job market has depreciated rather than appreciated.

 

Bush’s two wars; two tax cuts and deregulations that allowed the Bankers and Wall Street to manipulate your mortgages into a White Collar Larceny called Derivatives, those are the Policies that threw us into the abyss, crashed the Stock Market from 14,000 plus to 6,500 and effectuated a net job loss during Bush’s eight years and the first year into the Obama’s Presidency.

 

Your lost homes; jobs; savings; and all that you held near and dear to your heart from your hard-earned labor, “The Republicans stole it, not Obama, and, they will steal your very soul if you so elect to put them back in the White House and in control of the both Houses of Congress.”

 

This wasn’t happenstance, this was premeditated by the Republicans so that they can legally steal from you to protect America’s ONE PERCENT!

 

 

 

 

 

Real Clear Politics most Recent Electoral College Map reflecting no Toss Ups States!

The information reflected on the image is from www.realclearpolitics.com and I have attached the link below.

 

Real Clear Politics Electoral College Maps reflecting May through August 23, 2012 with no toss ups are;

 

May: Obama 368, Romney 170;

 

June: Obama 303, Romney 235;

 

July: Obama 332, Romney 206

 

August: Obama 303, Romney 235.

 

As we are all aware, it takes 270 Electoral College Votes to win the Presidency. What is self evident is that, although the numbers have changed, Former Governor Mitt Romney has never surpassed President Barack Obama.

 

From the hundreds of articles I have posted on my Face Book and Google Plus Pages and tweeted, it is no mystery that I support the President. My lack of enthusiasm and non-support for Mr. Romney is solely based on Romney’s constantly changing positions dating back to 1994, when he ran to unseat the now deceased Senator, Ted Kennedy.

 

People often doubt what you say but they always believe what you do, and in regards to “saying and doing,” Mr. Romney falls vividly short in his Political Positions as well as his Policy Positions.

 

As often said, “a day in Politics is a life time,” hence, anything is possible! However, with eight years of Former President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and their Republican Policies that lead to an “Orwellian Terror State and bankrupted our Nation,” I do not believe that America has forgotten, the deep and unforgiving troubled waters that they left us in and how far we have come, irrespective of all of the negative commotion that are being permeated against the President.

 

Sometimes it is difficult for me to comprehend the Voters logic or intellect or both, when it comes to their decision making process, thus let us look at a few factors.

 

From January of 2001 through August of 2008, Bush’s polices lead to the creation of two million, six hundred thousand jobs, but from September 2008 until the day Mr. Bush left office, there was a job loss of three million two hundred thousand jobs. Job losses were at the rate of eight hundred thousand per month.

 

And, this continued into the Obama’s Presidency and well into almost all of 2009, until Obama’s policies were implemented. At the inception of 2010 through the end of July 2012, four million five hundred thousand jobs were created.

 

The Dow Jones fell from a high of 14,000 plus to 6,500 in 2007 and 2008. Today, August 26, 2012, the Dow Jones is at an all time four year high of 13,100 plus.

 

The two wars and the two gigantic tax cuts Bush generated were never paid for, hence when Obama took office, the bills came due and the Republican Party who was part of all of these debts, they held off raising the Debt Ceiling in a timely manner causing us for the first time, to lose our Triple A [AAA] ratings.

 

Of the five trillion dollars increase in our National debt since Obama took office, 88% were spent paying off the unpaid bills left by Bush and only 12% were used to implement and sustain Obama’s policies.

 

The Republicans allowed Wall Street and the Banks to go unregulated and they created a scheme whereby, they took home-owners mortgages, packaged it and sold it to investors as Derivatives [Sub-Prime Mortgage] and this was the catalyst that totally collapsed the housing market causing millions of Americans to lose their homes and millions more are living in homes that is classified as “underwater,” and may yet lose their homes.

 

John Paulson, the Hedge Fund Manager made his fortune betting that the sub-prime mortgage market would collapse, is worth 12.5 billion dollars. He has donated one million dollars to Super PAC’S on behalf of Romney and the Republican Party. He is one of the 23 people along with the Kochs brothers, David, Charles and William that are using their wealth to unseat Obama and elect Romney, so that they can add more billions to their already existing fortunes, whilst 98% of America would sink further back into the deep and unforgiving waters we were left in, at the end of 2008.

 

Amazing isn’t it! Obama is blamed by Mitt Romney, The Republican Party and the Republican and some Independent Voters, for all that ails us and our country.

Shauna Prewitt bravely shared her story with Soledad O’Brien [CNN] August 23, 2012…of how she became pregnant after being raped, kept the child and then fought her attacker’s request for sole custody. Did you know 31 states have laws protecting parental rights for men who father through rape? Do you think those laws are fair?

Comments by Sheriff Ali

 

The Republicans [If given the opportunity] will turn American Women to suffer the same consequences of Afghan and Pakistani Women, where Males control all rights over women,, removing g and usurping their dignity and the very hope of life as  human beings.

 

How or why some American Women follow these hypocritical excuses for men calling themselves Republicans; this is truly beyond my ability to comprehend!

 

Even in Saudi Arabia where a 19 year old married woman got raped by six Saudi Soldiers, she was the one arrested and sent to prison and ordered to undergo 99 lashes (beatings).

 

Perhaps, just perhaps, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, John Boehner, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and “all” of the Political Republican men, maybe; “Arabs – in White Anglo-Saxon, outer-skin!” [Wolves in Sheep Clothing, Coyotes against women]

The Official Republican Platform on Abortion…

Despite the Republicans from Mitt Romney and others being critical of Todd Akin’s remarks about rape, The Republican Party Official Platform on Abortion for the Republican Convention beginning on August 27, 2012 is;

 

Verbatim:

 

“Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn ha a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed, we support human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”

 

[Read carefully and notice there aren’t any exceptions for rape or incest or the safety of the mother’s life, and as such, “their position is no different that that of Todd Akin and Paul Ryan when they proposed the “Personhood Act” in 2011 that was endorsed by more than 200 Republicans in the House of Representatives”].

“WHAT I SAW WHILE I WAS IN A COMA”

“WHAT I SAW WHILE I WAS IN A COMA”

 

THIS DAY, ETERNITY WITH GOD KNOCKS AT YOUR DOOR!

I want to tell you a short story about myself and irrespective of whether or not you believe me, be sure and know that what I mention in the next several lines, are the truth, nothing but the truth, so help me God!

 

On November 6, 1996 I fell into a diabetic coma. At the time I fell into the coma I became totally incapacitated. I was placed in the “Emergency Section” of the hospital and this is what transpired.

 

For approximately the first 24 hours I could see and hear even though the Doctors and the Nurses was unaware of this, I saw how they fought with every ounce of strength, knowledge and good will to keep me from falling from the semi-coma into what is called a “deep-coma.” A deep coma is what medical science describes as “never waking up again.” For the almost 24 hours or thereabouts the doctors and nurses did everything within their own power but the moment came when the line on the monitor stopped beeping and a “straight line” began to flow from left to right on the monitor. I saw the doctors along with the nurses activate all of the various machines that they already had connected me to. The very last thing I heard was when one of the doctors said, “We have lost him!” The very last thing I saw was when the doctor pulled the white sheet all the way up to my neck and in what I can only describe as a last good bye, heads bowed, they turned and walked away. Those were the last words I heard and the last sight of any human beings and then it happened.

With my body laying on the bed, hooked up to all of the machines, I felt my body jolting and what came next, was me standing at the side of the bed looking at my physical body laying on the bed with the penetrating view of the white sheet drawn all the way up to my neck. It was from that moment that the events that followed next you would find it hard to believe, but for me it is not about who believes or don’t believe, the fact remains is that I do believe and now even two months short of twelve years, I have never stopped believing.

 

In a brisk of a moment I found myself going downwards through a very dark passageway and I came to this massive gate. The gate was widely ajar and I walked in. It was dark but not what I would call complete blackness. The place had a dark dreary look and it felt very humid. As I continued to walk I could hear people screaming, weeping bitterly, bemoaning cries and then off to my left there was this massive contingent of people who were hurting more than they could possibly bear. From where I stood to where they were, I stood there just staring at them and it seemed apparent that although there were no physical barriers, they were trying to come towards me but they couldn’t. I saw hands reaching out in a grasping manner and they kept on saying, come with us, come here! It was a plea for help. Unfortunately, I myself could not go any closer to them than I was, that too seemed like I was restrained from going towards them. The cries, pangs and pines got louder and louder and then it happened. A man in a white-cream robe, sandals on his feet, shoulder length hair came and stood on my right side. He stretched out his left hand and said in the gentlest of voice, “come with me, you do not belong here.” With my right hand I grasped his left wrist and I looked up to see his face, but I could see everything of him, but never did I ever see his face. As we began to exit, the people’s cries became louder and louder and they went from pleas to anger and began to chant you will never make it, you will never make it! The man whose hand I was holding kept on saying, very gently, keep walking and don’t look back, keep walking and don’t look back. Though the loud chants were dissipating, I could still plainly hear it. We walked through some sort of tunnel that was pitch-dark and finally we came out from beneath the earth and stood on top of the earth. At the time we exited the tunnel and came on top it remained very, very dark. There was a blackness about the darkness that I have not the words to explain it.

The man stopped and he said to me, look ahead of you in that great distance and you will see light, and when you see the light, that is when I brought you into this world. Where we are right now, is presently your age on this earth, forty six years, two months and two days. He continued, we will walk and even though the path is dark, you must look to your right hand and your left, and on the right are the good things you have done in this life and you will feel peace, relief and happiness, but on your left are the things you have done that was wrong and that will bring you, sorrow, discomfort, anxiety, but when it gets too much turn to your right for relief and strength. Along this journey which was picturesque all the things on my right that I saw seemed to have been etched in my memory, for I was able to recall every moment with no struggle in trying to remember, it just came back to me like it was happening at that very moment. It was a long journey, the path remained dark but off to the right and to the left everything was lit so that I could see, but the light never reflected as we journeyed.

The journey was long, very long, very trying, there were moment of total weariness and moments of unexplained joy. As we were getting closer to the edge of darkness and now I could see even more clearly, not too far off in the distance I could see light in a way that I had never seen before. The man said with the same gentle voice, the screaming, cries and pain you heard before you will hear again and they will say to you, you will never make it, you belong with us, don’t listen to them, don’t let my hands go, just keep walking. No sooner than he stopped speaking I could hear the anger and rage, you will never make it; you will never make it. Now, we got to the edge of darkness and I stopped. The man said, don’t look back, don’t listen to them, put your left foot into the light and then put your right foot. I placed my left foot into the light and I lifted my right foot but before I could set it down, someone threw a dark bottle and it broke with some sort of black liquid and I stepped on it. I look down and I saw blood, lots of blood, and the man with me said, nothing is wrong with your right foot, just keep walking. At that moment we were now in complete light.

The man stopped and I stopped but I was still holding his hand. He said “this is when I brought you into the world in innocence” I want you to turn with me but do not let go of my hand. So we turned and now we were facing the darkness we had left behind, except the darkness was gone. The man said, you see in the distance that is where your life is at this moment, so now that you have seen good and bad, right and wrong, we will journey back to where you are at the present time and you must look again on your right and on your left, for now the good will be on your left and the bad will be on your right. I said to the man, Lord, I know now what I must do, let me just run to where you met me and I know what I must do. The man said, I will not force you to hold my hand, and I will not hold your hand, but you should hold on to my hand of your own free will and walk back with me. For when we get to where I met you, father Abraham will take over the journey. He said if you let go of my hand and run back as you want to do, you will continue to fall all the days of your life and perhaps at sometime, you may never be able to rise, but if you walk back with me, revisit the right and the left, I shall make you strong and all that is my “will for you in this life,” you will do, “for I shall never leave you nor forsake you!

So, we began the journey again and again it was happiness and pain, sorrow and joy, anxiety and peace but I kept on holding his hand tighter and tighter. We finally got to where the man, who I then knew for sure, was Jesus. He just vanished and standing in front of me was Abraham. Let me stray for a moment and explain something to you, I am not an artist in the sense of painting or drawing, but if I could, I would paint a perfect picture of exactly what Abraham looks like. Now, journey with me once more!

 

Abraham said, we must journey my son and without being able to comprehend how it happened, what happened next was, we were walking on the seashore, it was beautiful, the sea was calm, the sun was bright. Abraham said, in the near distance we will turn right, I shall tell you when. No sooner he finished the sentence, dark clouds appeared overhead, the sea became boisterous and the waves stood about twenty feet in the air, the amazing thing is that it did not break the shore line. Abraham saw that I was afraid and he said “nothing will happen to you, you belong to the Lord.” I remained afraid and it was just minutes when Abraham said to me, turn to the right and as we turned we came upon a child, a little girl about the age of 14, she had on clothing that looked like it was made of animal skin, dark brown in color, she had on sandals, dark brown in color, he hair was loose with a length that reached mid-way down her back, she was of light brown complexion. She had a staff in her right hand and her right hand was stretched out and in the manner that she was holding the staff, it seemed she was blocking the entrance behind her. I looked up at the child, she smiled, she pulled in her right hand with the staff; the entrance opened and behind her is what I can only describe in one word, Heaven!

This Heaven is different than what is described in the book of Revelations. There were no mansions, no streets paved with gold, but what was in this Heaven was, people, people of all color, races, children, women and men, the only difference was, no one ever had even the faintest hint of age on their faces or body. In this Heaven there was no sea, but unbelievable beautiful rivers and streams, the grass was green everywhere, it was beyond pristine. All the people, children, men and women were talking, laughing, and their kindness to each other was incomprehensible. When we entered this Heaven some of the people were cooking and during the time I spent there Abraham spent all the time talking to me. It seemed apparent that I could see the people but they could not see me, and what was also apparent was, I could see Abraham, but the people could not see Abraham.

Abraham talked to me about life, about things that were going to happen and after many, many hours I exited Heaven without Abraham. According to my count this has now been the third day in the coma, but I couldn’t be sure. Then what happened next was, I seemed to have fallen into a trance and in that trance I saw President Clinton in the White House. He was doing things that he shouldn’t be doing and I also saw disaster ahead of us. It is not that I won’t, it’s that I can’t go into the details about the disaster and President Clinton. I saw many other things which I will write about in the near future but I need to exit the coma in order to reveal to you something that may be the most important thing I can ever say to you.

 

As I mentioned above, I fell into the coma on November 6, 1996 and I awoke on November 13, 1996. When I woke up the doctors were absolutely astonished, shocked may be a better word. The first thing someone said to me was, “You are a miracle man, you are lucky, medically, you were not supposed to wake up” After an exchange of a few words I requested to see my medical file and to be left alone. They brought my file and they left the room. I opened the file and specifically looked to see the records that pertained to the time I fell into the coma until I awoke. What I did see was that on the third day into the coma, the doctors wrote their medical opinion, and it stated, “It is impossible for Mr. Ali to wake up from that coma, because medical history has no record of anyone awakening from a minus zero blood-sugar coma.”

I fell into the coma on November 6, 1996 but I had cancer surgery scheduled for November 7, 1996 at a different hospital. I was diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer and the Oncologist and the bone marrow specialist had determined that the “root” of my cancer was lodged in the marrow of my spinal cord. They had told me that surgery removing the tumors (lumps) would not stop the cancer, but just slow it down. We had tried through hundreds of good-hearted people who wanted to donate their marrow to me, but we could not find a match. Thus, the decision to have the surgery without being able to replace the marrow was based on the fact that my white blood count had reached 17,500. This part about my cancer is important in order for me to put everything into perspective for you.

 

Thus, after coming out of the coma and knowing all that I had seen, even before medical proof, I had made up my mind that I wasn’t going to have the cancer surgery because I knew I no longer needed it. After three different sets of blood tests, my white blood count had fallen below the 5,000 marker. Subsequently, I was advised by medical people that I should have the surgery to remove the lumps in my upper left arm, my chest and my leg, to this day I refuse. I unequivocally stated that during the coma I had held the hand of God even though I did not see His face and I knew that divine intervention took place, but when I made that statement to the medical people, they said, if God did heal you, why are the lumps still there? I have said and will always say, even with every last ounce of breath, God left the lumps as a reminder to me.

Now going back to what I saw in the coma, I wrote an 18 page letter in which my wife, one friend and a Pastor read it. The letter was straight to the point about impending disaster. My wife did not want me to send the letter because she said, “They will think you are crazy and on the other hand, if anything should happen, they will blame you for it. My dear brother in Christ, Mike and the Pastor said to me, “You must do what God wants you to do.” So, my wife did send the 18-page letter early in 1997. She sent it Certified Mail via the US Postal Service. I received the confirmation from the US Postal Service acknowledging that the Justice Department did receive the letter. About a week subsequent to their receipt of the letter, I received a letter from the Justice Department and it was a short letter. They wrote, “Dear Mr. Ali: Thank you for your letter. We have read it and placed it in our files.” I can tell you that they did not throw it away, but the file they placed it in was perhaps the one that reads “Another Nut Case.” Three weeks subsequent to the letter about the impending disaster, I wrote 12 pages to the Justice Department about what I saw President Clinton was doing. Again, my wife opposed, the Pastor and Mike took their same position as before. The letter was sent. I got the confirmation and another letter from the Justice Department with about the same statement as the first letter they had sent.

 

I remember today as clearly as I did when the scandal broke about President Clinton and my wife had said to me, “Please do not dream anything about me, do not see anything in the future about me, just don’t even think about me!” And subsequently, the disaster that I wrote about did take place. Now, as I said before I can’t talk about that, but what I can say is that more than half of what I saw in the coma has come to pass, and the worst is yet to come. The world can avoid the impending disasters that lay ahead for all of us, but it will take the hearts of men, women and children to turn once more not to religion, but to God. I will stop here and just go on to two things.

 

First, I have sent you an enormous amount of spiritual writings. With God’s help and the help of a handful of people we have sent you everything possible that does not deal with anyone’s religion but Almighty God. God is not a religion, Jesus is not a religion. Look through the New Testament and find one place where Jesus embraced any religion, He did not! Look through the Old Testament and see if any of the Prophets or the people who followed God, embraced religion, no they did not. Religion is not bad, but its inception was by man and as such man manipulates for his own avarice, for mammon and to put fear into people, but God is not fear, God, love, truth and providence is “indivisible.”

Here is what I can tell you about Heaven:

   The glorified weep no more, for all outward causes of grief are gone. There are no broken friendships, nor blighted prospects in heaven. Poverty, famine, peril, persecution, and slander, are unknown there. No pain, distresses, no thought of death or bereavement saddens. We weep no more, for we are perfectly sanctified. No “evil heart of unbelief” prompts us to depart from the living God; we are without fault before His throne, and are fully conformed to His image. Well may we cease to mourn who have ceased to sin.

 

   We weep no more, because all fear of changing is past. We know that we are eternally secure. Sin is shut out, and we are shut in. We dwell within a city which shall never be stormed; we bask in a sun which shall never set; we drink of a river which shall never dry, we pluck fruit from a tree which shall never wither. Countless cycles may revolve, but eternity shall not be exhausted, and while eternity endures, our immortality and blessedness shall co-exist with it. We are forever with the Lord. We weep no more, because every desire is fulfilled. We cannot wish for anything which we have not in possession. Eye and ear, heart and hand, judgments, imagination, hope, desire, will, all the faculties, are completely satisfied; and imperfect as our present ideas are of the things which God hath prepared for us that love Him, yet we know enough, by the revelation of the spirit, that the saints above are supremely blessed.

 

    The joy of Christ, which is an infinite fullness of delight, is in us. We bathe ourselves in the bottomless, shoreless sea of infinite beatitude. That same joyful rest remains for us. It may not be far distant. Ere long the weeping willow shall be exchanged for the palm-branch of victory, and sorrow’s dewdrops will be transformed into the pearls of everlasting bliss. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words”:

  God gave me the strength to write about parts of what I saw in the coma, it is my hope that each and everyone of you will find rest for your souls, that when our time comes or the hour of our loved one comes, either they can say of us or we can say of them;

 

The Lord’s people shall also enjoy light in the hour of death. Unbelief laments; the shadows fall, the night is coming, existence is ending. Ah no, crieth faith, the night is far spent, the true day is at hand. Light is come, the light of immortality, the light of a Father’s countenance. Gather up thy feet in thy bed; see the waiting bands of spirits! Angeles waft thee away. Farewell, beloved one, thou art gone, thou wavest thine hand. Ah, now it is light. The pearly gates are open; the golden streets shine in the jasper light. We cover our eyes, but thou beholdest the unseen, adieu, beloved, thou hast light at even-tide, such as we have not yet.

My hands are washed from the blood of all those with whom I have been communicating, If at the end of your sojourner’s days you are separated from God, from hereon in, that is between you and God. Revisit my writings and you will see, I never once invoked religion, but all I sought to do is to guide you as God has guided me and that you “accept His free Gift of life!”  People reject the fact that God humbled Himself, came down and walked this earth, allowed Himself to be beaten, mocked, nailed to a cross and die for us, because people more often than not say, “God does not have to humble Himself” Look at it from this perspective, if you know your child were going to die and you could give that child your heart so the child would live, would you not do it? Thus, if we, a fallible and imperfect people can lay down our life for our child, how much more would our Father in Heaven do for us? One thing is for certain, God gave us free will, He will never retreat on that, so for the people who say, a loving God will not put anyone in a place called Hell, they are right, God will not put us there, but if we end up there, it is because we made the conscious choice to reject the fact that God did say, “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life,” and that He did pay a price that we could never ever pay, and that is He died for us so that we can have life and not just abundantly, but eternally.

 

May the Lord guide you in all that you do, may He cause His face to shine upon you, may He place salve upon your eyelids so that the scales that blind thee from seeing beyond this world would be removed, and that your spiritual eyes would be open from the things of this world that passes away, to the world that is eternally bliss.

 

God Bless,

Paul Ryan’s Extreme Abortion Views! Flip-Flopper’s Choice!

Mitt’s VP pick is a known fiscal conservative, but his social ideology is at least as radical. Michelle Goldberg on Ryan’s insinuations that women who choose abortion could be jailed.

by Michelle Goldberg.  The Daily Beast

By now, you surely know, if you didn’t already, that Paul Ryan Paul, Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick, wants to privatize Social Security and turn Medicare into a voucher system. You might have read that, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, his economic plan “calls for radical policy changes that would result in a massive transfer of resources from the broad majority of Americans to the nation’s wealthiest individuals.”

Less attention has been paid, though, to Ryan’s hard-right positions on social issues. Indeed, on abortion and women’s health care, there isn’t much daylight between Ryan and, say, Michele Bachmann. Any Republican vice-presidential candidate is going to be broadly anti-abortion, but Ryan goes much further. He believes ending a pregnancy should be illegal even when it results from rape or incest, or endangers a woman’s health. He was a cosponsor of the Sanctity of Human Life Act, a federal bill defining fertilized eggs as human beings, which, if passed, would criminalize some forms of birth control and in vitro fertilization. The National Right to Life Committee has scored his voting record 100 percent every year since he entered the House in 1999. “I’m as pro-life as a person gets,” he told-The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack in 2010. “You’re not going to have a truce.”

Indeed, Ryan exemplifies a strange sort of ideological hybrid that now dominates the GOP. On economic issues, he’s a hardcore libertarian who once said, “[T]he reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker…it would be Ayn Rand. And the fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism.” Yet when it comes to women’s control of their bodies, he quickly turns into a statist. “In the state of nature—the ‘law of the jungle’—the determination of who ‘qualifies’ as a human being is left to private individuals or chosen groups,” he wrote in a 2010 essay titled “The Cause of Life Can’t Be Severed From the Cause of Freedom.” “In a justly organized community, however, government exists to secure the right to life and the other human rights that follow from that primary right.”

For anyone who wants to know how Ryan thinks, that essay is worth reading It’s about 1,500 words long, but the word “woman” doesn’t appear in it once. [See link below] Nor does the word “mother.” To him, a woman’s claim to bodily autonomy or self-determination doesn’t merit even cursory consideration. Here’s his analogy: “The car which I exercised my freedom of choice to purchase…does not ‘qualify’ for protection of human rights. I can drive it, lend it, kick it, sell it, or junk it, at will. On the other hand, the widow who lives next door does ‘qualify’ as a person, and the government must secure her human rights, which cannot be abandoned to anyone’s arbitrary will.”

Ryan said he has never specifically advocated jailing women who have abortions, but according to a newspaper article, he said, “If it’s illegal, it’s illegal.”

This disregard for the exigencies of women’s lives—the dismissal of their choices as amoral exercises of “arbitrary will”—was thrown into high relief during his 1998 run for congress against Democrat Lydia Spottswood. Both candidates backed a ban on so-called partial-birth abortion, but Spottswood believed there should be exceptions in cases where a woman’s life or health is endangered. “Ryan said he opposes abortion, period,” reported the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “He said any exceptions to a ‘partial-birth’ abortion ban would make that ban meaningless.”

During that campaign, Ryan also expressed his willingness to let states criminally prosecute women who have abortions. According to another Journal Sentinelarticle, he “would let states decide what criminal penalties would be attached to abortions. Ryan said he has never specifically advocated jailing women who have abortions or doctors who perform them, but added, ‘If it’s illegal, it’s illegal.’”

Naturally, when Ryan’s selection was announced the anti-abortion movement was jubilant. While he made his reputation in the fiscal arena, David French wrote on the religion blog Patheos, “[T]hose of us in the conservative movement have also known Paul Ryan as a man completely committed to the cause of life… a recitation of his legislative record doesn’t do justice to his pro-life commitment.” Now, people outside the conservative movement need to understand that commitment as well.

When Cruelty Is Cute – Paul Ryan!

Posted in Children, Cruelty, George W. Bush, Heartless, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Pickwick, Politics, Poverty, Scrooge, The Elderly, Uncategorized with tags , , , on August 16, 2012 by sheriffali

“He’s Scrooge disguised as a Pickwick, an ideologue disguised as a wonk. Not since Ronald Regan tried to cut the budget by categorizing ketchup and relish as vegetables has the G.O.P. managed to find such an attractive vessel to mask harsh policies with a smiling face.”

 

By: Maureen Dowd

New York Times

I’d been wondering how long it would take Republicans to realize that Paul Ryan is their guy.

He’s the cutest package that cruelty ever came in. He has a winning air of sad cheerfulness. He’s affable, clean cut and really cut, with the Irish altar-boy widow’s peak and droopy, winsome blue eyes and unashamed sentimentality.

Who better to rain misery upon the heads of millions of Americans?

He’s Scrooge disguised as a Pickwick, an ideologue disguised as a wonk. Not since Ronald Reagan tried to cut the budget by categorizing ketchup and relish as vegetables has the G.O.P. managed to find such an attractive vessel to mask harsh policies with a smiling face.

The Young Gun and former prom king is a fan of deer hunting, catfish noodling, heavy metal and Beethoven. He’s a great dad who says the cheese, bratwurst and beer of Wisconsin flow in his veins. He’s so easy to like — except that his politics are just a teensy bit heartless.

Rush Limbaugh hails Ryan as “the last Boy Scout,” noting that the tall, slender 42-year-old is a true believer: “We now have somebody on the ticket who’s us.”

For the rest of us, at least, Ryan is not going to raise our hopes only to dash them. Unlike W., he’s not even going to make a feint at “compassionate conservatism.” Why bother with some silly scruple or toehold of conscience?

Unlike some of the right-wing ayatollahs, Ryan doesn’t threaten with moral and cultural gusts of sulfur. He seems more like a friendly guidance counselor who wants to teach us how to live, get us in shape, PowerPoint away the social safety net to make the less advantaged more self-reliant, as he makes the rich richer. Burning the village it takes to save it, so we can avoid the fiscal cliff, or as he and his fellow conservative Cassandras ominously call it, “the debt bomb.”

Like Mitt Romney, Ryan truly believes he made it on his own, so everyone else can, too. He shrugs off the advantage of starting as the white guy from an affluent family, able to breeze into a summer internship for a Wisconsin Republican senator as a college student.

Only 16 and the youngest of four when he discovered his lawyer dad dead in bed from a heart attack at 55, Ryan had to grow up fast.

The Midwestern kid was guided by what David Stockman calls “Irving Kristol’s ex-Trotskyites” turned neo-cons; Jack Kemp, the cheery supply-sider who actually cared about the disadvantaged, and by one of Kemp’s favorite authors, Russian émigré and cult leader Ayn (pronounced like swine, as she used to say) Rand.

“And the fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism,” Ryan said in a 2005 speech to the Atlas Society. He even gave copies of “Atlas Shrugged” to staffers at Christmas. He did not emulate Rand on everything, given that she adamantly opposed Ronald Reagan, saying, “Since he denies the right to abortion, he cannot be a defender of any rights.”

Ryan co-sponsored the Sanctity of Life Act enshrining a fertilized egg with the definition of “personhood” and supported a bill Democrats nicknamed the “Let Women Die Act,” which would have let hospitals that get federal money deny women abortions even in life-threatening circumstances.

And Rand would not have approved of Ryan’s votes in the House backing W.’s profligate spending on unwinnable wars, a bank bailout and a Medicare expansion. She would no doubt have been thrilled, however, that under the Ryan budget plan, the megarich Romney would go from paying shamefully as little as possible in taxes to virtually no taxes.

Ryan was drawn to Rand’s novels, with their rejection of “the altruist morality,” making narcissism a social virtue; her exhortation that man must not only strive for “physical values” — her heroes were hot — and self-made wealth, but a “self-made soul.” Like John Galt, who traces a dollar sign “over the desolate earth” at the end of “Atlas Shrugged,” Rand idolized the dollar. She wore a brooch shaped like a dollar sign, and a 6-foot dollar sign stood beside her coffin at her wake.

Although the Catholic Ryan told Fox News’s Brit Hume in an interview that aired Tuesday night that he “completely disagreed” with Rand’s “atheistic philosophy,” he said his interest in economics was “triggered” by her.

His long infatuation with her makes him seem even younger than he looks with his cowlick because Randism is a state of arrested adolescence, making its disciples feel like heroic teenagers atop a lofty mountain peak.

The secretive, ambiguous Romney was desperate for ideological clarity, so he outsourced his political identity to Ryan, a numbers guy whose numbers don’t add up.

This just proves that Romney will never get over his anxiety about not being conservative enough. As president, he’d still feel the need to prove himself with right-wing Supreme Court picks.

Ryan should stop being so lovable. People who intend to hurt other people should wipe the smile off their faces.
