This is the same type of thinking that causes hearts to bleed for convicted murderers like Nathan Dunlap, but not for his victims. Dunlap is believed by some to be a victim of injustice (because he received the death penalty and is black). The fact that he shot and killed four people (and wounded a fifth) isn’t considered. PC thinking says that we should ignore the character of the person and merely focus on the color of his skin (in this case). “He’s black. Give him a break. Martin was being profiled by Zimmerman because of skin color.” That’s exactly what the judge in this case is doing by disallowing some of the evidence.
Let me start by saying that the book is not tremendously in-depth. Redwood doesn’t spend a good deal of time breaking everything down so that the reader gets bored before he reaches the conclusion. No, Redwood is more concerned about concise, useful explanations that allow people to understand that piece of the puzzle, then that other piece of the puzzle, and then the next. Soon, the entire puzzle is starting to take shape. Rather than focusing solely on one or two pieces of the puzzle, Redwood uses the various pieces to help build the completed picture.
Seattle’s mayor notes, “We’ve had anecdotal successes with the pilot project in East and Southwest Precincts, so we’re expanding Predictive Policing citywide.” For those unaware, “anecdotal” refers to “containing or consisting exclusively of anecdotes rather than connected discourse or research conducted under controlled conditions.” In other words, it’s done by mere observation rather than any substantive and proven research techniques. Educators use anecdotal notes to add information to a student’s information, whether related to how the student does in a classroom environment or something else.
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.
Apparently, Obama is willing to ask pastors to use their influence to change the way folks think. But all this is really a direct assault on the 2nd Amendment, which clearly states that it shall not be infringed. It has already been infringed and placing more things between it and the individual buying guns further infringes it.
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.
