The national ID “card would contain a digital encryption key that would be required to match work authorization databases. The micro-processing chip on the card would store the biometric identifier.” You don’t want to go along with this new system? Say “good-bye” to your job. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are co-sponsors of the bill that would create this. Schumer is a “progressive” and Graham is often more like a RINO.
But whether Obama is actually in charge or not may also be a moot point in reality. In one of the books I’ve recently written (dealing with political correctness) it is clear to me at least that there are people with a great deal of power (because of the huge amounts of money they have) that they have a great deal of pull with respect to the White House. These individuals have chosen to remain in the background while doing whatever they can to get things done their way.
So as we watch things unfolding in the current administration, we know that as bad as things get, God will only allow it to succeed to a point. Just as Babylon was ultimately overcome by the Medes-Persians, who were defeated by Alexander the Great, whose kingdom was divided up among his generals and eventually, Rome replaced it, so too will current governments exist only for as long as they play a part in God’s end time calendar. They will exist not one day more than slated to do so.
As a Christian, I cannot condone homosexuality anymore than I can condone two people living together outside of marriage. I don’t condemn people because of it, but I certainly cannot condone it. The left likes to accuse people like me of being a “hater” because of this position. The truth is that simply because I cannot embrace a lifestyle does not mean that I have no embraced the person. Gay friends of mine understand this difference. They do not feel as though I hate them or condemn them. They know I am there for them.
But even turning off your cell phone may not stop the geolocation services. “Cell phones keep sending a signal several times a minute even though they are turned off. The only way to stop the GPS signal from a cell phone is to take out the battery, which is nearly impossible for the 75 million consumers who own an iPhone.”
We have people like Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and too many others to list here who have spent their lives since the original 9/11 trying to educate people in America about the dangers of radical Islam. For their trouble, they are often maligned by the left and called bigots and worse by people who are either agents of Islam, or individuals who truly do not understand the framework in which radical Islamists think.
One of the things I have never understood is why the left seems to believe the idea that larger government somehow translates to a better society. We already know that there is incredible waste in our government and to increase its size simply means to increase the amount of waste. That apparently doesn’t bother a lot of people on the left though because in general, they all seem to be in favor of larger government.
It seems that every day, Obama’s actions become more contemptible. The way he stutters after this segments because he’s dealing no less than three scandals that Jay Carney refuses to accept as scandals.
The officers then began rounding up the cell phones from people who had recorded the event. There is a grainy, dark video of the incident that can be viewed. Witnesses say that as Silva was being beaten, he was begging for his life. It was impossible for Silva to fight back against 9 officers and one can only wonder what motivated the officers to beat him as they did.
The problem with Common Core – as we’re discovering – is that though it is clearly illegal for the federal government to dictate to the states (and HOW did Obamacare become law again?), this is exactly what the Obama administration has been doing. Because of this, state governors are now taking a moment to “hit the pause button” as Gov. Pence has done in Indiana, and now Gov. Deal has done by actually hitting the “stop” button.
