A California "sanctuary city" has fallen victim to illegal immigration – going bankrupt and firing all of its public employees, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.

The city of Maywood, Calif., hit the budget wall after it decided not only to be a sanctuary city, but to be a completely "safe haven" for illegal aliens seeking protection from deportation.
. . .
"Crushed by the recession and falling tax revenues, the city is disbanding the police force and firing all public-sector employees," Matthew Garrahan wrote in the Financial Times, never mentioning that illegal immigration was the problem. Read Story Here.

Four Christians were arrested and jailed recently at Dearborn, Mich. for alleged “disorderly conduct” and “disruptive behavior” at an Arab festival, the Detroit Free Press said. Read story at The Underground.

I would urge the missionaries to sue the police department for violating their civil rights.

The Free Exercise Clause is the accompanying clause with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause together read:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof... Source: Wikipedia.

Free exercise of religion
Main article: Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment

In Sherbert v. Verner, 374 U.S. 398 (1963), the Warren Court applied the strict scrutiny standard of review to this clause, holding that a state must demonstrate a compelling interest in restricting religious activities. In Employment Division v. Smith, 494 U.S. 872 (1990), the Supreme Court retreated from this standard, permitting governmental actions that were neutral regarding religion. The Congress attempted to restore this standard by passing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, but in City of Boerne v. Flores, 521 U.S. 507 (1997), the Supreme Court held that such an attempt was unconstitutional regarding state and local government actions (though permissible regarding federal actions).

Is President Obama the Antichrist?

How many people, mostly fundamental Christians, are looking for a powerful figure who will be heading up a one world power who will become a worldwide dictator? I don’t know how many emails I’ve received that proclaim that Barack Obama is the False Prophet or the antichrist. Well, we do not have to wait any longer to find out.

I personally do not believe the president is the antichrist. However, the spirit of anti-Christ is already with us today. In fact the Apostle John confirms this. 1 John 2:18 ". . . it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists. . ." Verse 22 "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
An Associated Press writer asks, "Is everything spinning out of control?" A Wall Street Journal headline read, "Millennium Fever: Prophets Proliferate, The End is Near." A New York Times book review began, "Some 50 million Americans share a belief that these are the last days." Even the Chicago Tribune ran a front-page story about the end times in a recent Sunday edition. Source.
Many believe we are in the last days as prophesied in both the Old and New Testaments. But, we have been living in the last days (last times) since The days of Christ and the apostles.
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; (Hebrews 1:2, KJV).

The majority of the founding fathers were Christians, in spite of historical revisionists who claim they were not, who established a government based on Judeo-Christian principles--principles based on both the Jewish “Holy Scriptures,” and the Christian “New Testament.”
Jack Ewing: Progressives revising history to remove our Christian foundation
One of the many big lies the progressives have fed us over the years is that the United States is not and never was a nation of primarily Christian citizens. They have simply revised the history of our country to promote their aim to take our Christian foundation out from under us because they recognize, just as our founding fathers did, that it is essential to the success of a constitutional republic such as ours. Source.
Progressives have a real problem with acknowledging a God who requires responsibility for our actions. They are especially sensitive to Christianity, whose founder and living head is the only way to live forever with him in his spiritual kingdom. Christianity is a great hindrance to the progressive program. And in like manner as progressives deny the Bible, they also deny the original intent of the constitution, as it also is a hindrance against their one world goal.

From the New American
I provided this brief lesson on American history for you, reader, to lay the foundations for what you are about to read. When the Progressives realized what it was that stood in their way of transforming America — God, Constitution, and the Founding Fathers — they reconsidered their agenda, and slowly but surely have dismantled these elements that were at the core of American values. The Founding Fathers have been portrayed as “rich white racists,” the Constitution has been distorted beyond recognition, and God has been removed from daily life. The New American.
Marxism is the religion the progressives want to unite with the state. Progressives must get rid of all forms of Christianity as it is an embarrassing hindrance to ‘abortion on demand;’ ‘amnesty for illegal aliens,’ which is contrary to the rule of law; ‘redistribution of wealth,’ legal robbery; enforced ‘health care;’ radical environmental laws, which have many elements of the New Age philosophy–the worship of Gaia, mother earth, all which ultimately leads to a dictatorship to force compliance. This is why they are paranoid about the Second Amendment, which I believe the founding fathers left us as a final protection against an abusive government.

Yes, the spirit of antichrist is here today, and is present in all modern secular education, the leftist news media, many unions, the ACLU, new age, and the Democrat Party, which has been taken over by the progressive movement, lock, stock, and barrel. We do not have to wait any longer. The important question is, what are we going to do about it?

So You Want to Take Your Country Back 5

This is the last article in this series. We began with voting for candidates who promise to enact legislation to create term limits.

Then, we followed with the repeal of the sixteenth amendment, taking economic power from politicians which they use to enhance their positions, and then repealing the seventeenth amendment returning each senator’s loyalties from their political parties back to their states, and effectively strengthening state’s rights.

Now, having watched the development of the Tea Party movement, analyzing their platforms and seeing the hateful rhetoric of the left against them, I believe we should vote for those candidates backed by the tea party. This way we would be electing candidates who are for small government, low taxes, and a return to constitutional government.

I was originally thinking about voting for candidates who are strong supporters of the second amendment. However, candidates for small government, low taxes, and a return to government according to the constitution, are also pro-second amendment.

I’ve seen lists by various well-known conservatives with long lists, some 20 or more requirements for those candidates we should vote for. However, the more suggestions, the more confusing. Voting for candidates that subscribe to the above few points would bring about the many changes recommended by conservatives, and would return our government to constitutional principles.

November is coming quickly, and we need to be getting our ducks in a row.

Rand Paul promises to be 'vigilant' protector of gun rights

By Joseph Gerth • • June 12, 2010

Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul told gun enthusiasts that if elected, he'll work to ensure that Congress doesn't pass any legislation that would restrict their rights to own weapons.

"I'm a proud defender of the Second Amendment," he told a group around him at the Great Eastern National Gun Day Show and JAG Military Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

"We must be ever vigilant of our Second Amendment rights. We must continually remind Washington that a majority cannot vote to take away our Second Amendment rights," he said. Courier-Journal, Louisville, KY

Those who caused the BP oil crisis are its greatest critics!

Democrats Return BP’s Campaign Donations So the Money Can Be Put Toward Environmental Cleanup Source

How hypocritical? Will they also return the donations made to them by the left wing environmentalists, whose lobbying over the years led to a moratorium on building oil refineries and nuclear energy plants? I doubt it. It is their combined fault that oil companies, mostly foreign, are drilling off shore.

Democrats supported by environmental groups continually vote against domestic oil, gas, and coal production.

Republicans also are guilty:
House Republicans who received campaign donations from environmental groups helped make up the narrow margin of votes needed to send the Waxman-Markey “cap and trade” bill over to the U.S. Senate.

The legislation passed by a vote of just 219 to 212 on Friday with critical assistance from eight Republicans. They are: Mary Bono Mack (Calif.), Mike Castle (Del.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Leonard Lance (N.J.), Frank LoBiondo (N.J.), John McHugh (N.Y.), Dave Reichert (Wash.), Chris Smith (N.J.). This support proved critical with 44 Democrats voting against the regulatory scheme.

Political Action Committees (PACs) connected with the League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club, Ocean Champions and Republicans for Environmental Protection have made donations to most of these same eight Republican lawmakers in recent election cycles, according to OpenSecrets.Org.

Read more at the Washington Examiner:
Those who are the loudest in condemning BP, are those who are the cause of this ecological disaster. They should hang their heads in shame. But they won’t! Because they think arrogantly think they are right and everyone else is wrong.

During this year’s primaries and in November, we have a chance to throw out those who have caused all of our current economic, social, and environmental disasters.
