50 Years After They Banned Prayer -- Are We Better Off?

It was fifty years ago today that the Supreme Court of the United States issued one of the most controversial decisions in the nation’s history -- the day they removed prayer from public schools.

In 1683 our forefathers explicitly mentioned the power of Jesus Christ in our founding. The Rhode Island Charter of 1683 states “We submit our person, lives, and estates unto our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, and to all those perfect and most absolute laws of His given us in His Holy World.”

Just ask yourself are we better off morally then we were just 50 years ago?

Just 50 years ago, kids could stay out past dark and their parents did not have to worry about pedophiles preying on their children.

Just 50 years ago, you actually knew your neighbor’s names.

Just 50 years ago, you didn’t have children ridiculing, and taunting an elderly bus monitor to tears, just for the fun of it.

I believe there is a correlation to the spike in crime, and the lack of religion our children our learning from a young age.

In 1947, in the landmark case Everson V. Board of Education, Thomas Jefferson’s “Wall of Church and State” was put on the stand. Since this decision relied on a statement, not made in our founding but instead 13 years after the Constitution was approved, our nation’s faith and core conviction have been on constant attack.

Somehow in the minds of the elitists Justices one statement after our founding dictates what our founders intended, not the thousands of calls for prayer and religion in the midst of our creation.

We forget the words of George Washington, “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States.” And we ignore the inscription on his monument, “Laus Deo” which means “Praise be to God.”

We overlook the inscription “In God We Trust” found in our nation’s capital and the words “Preserve me, God, for in Thee do I put my trust.”

But perhaps saddest of all; we forget the blessings our God has poured on our nation.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Our land truly does need healing -- and we as Christians must stand and restore this nation to its God-fearing founding.

Former President Ronald Reagan once issued a call to arms for the nation.

“If ever there was a time for you, the good people of this country, to make your voices heard, to make the mighty power of your will the decisive force in the halls of Congress, that time is now,” he declared.

That time is indeed now.

Fast and Furious: Somebody Needs to Go to Jail

Conservatives across the nation have known about the “Fast and Furious” cover-up for months now, but I suspect the average American knew very little of the Justice Dept. scandal -- until yesterday.

President Obama’s decision yesterday to invoke Executive Privilege may have given Attorney General Eric Holder political cover – but it conservative bloggers and tweeps the campaign ultimate

Obama is not the first president to exercise his right to use Executive Privilege. President Clinton used it. So did President Bush. But there is a significant difference. First – both Clinton and Bush had some sort of vested interest in invoking Executive Privilege.

To my knowledge, President Obama has no apparent connection to the “Fast and Furious” hullabaloo.

So why is he invoking Executive Privilege?

Regardless, “Fast and Furious” can no longer be swept under the rug by the liberal media elites. Once the President comments on the program from the Bully Pulpit all eyes and ears are turned toward them.

Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL) expressed outrage that many Americans share over the administration’s handling of the scandal.

“I truly apologize to the Terry family for what you've had to endure, and that we have an attorney general like this,” he said.

But Holder is downplaying the issue.

“That might make for good political theater, but it does little to uncover the truth or address the problems associated with this operation and prior ones dating back to the previous administration,” Holder said.

Not once did Holder mention Brian Terry, the Border Patrol agent who was gunned down at the hands of a “Fast and Furious” weapon. Not once did he invoke this American hero’s name. Not once did he say anything about justice for Terry’s family.

Meanwhile, Democrats are trying to place the blame on the Bush Administration – even though “Fast and Furious” had absolutely nothing to do with President Bush.

Truth always prevails, and I suspect that some very high-ranking Obama Administration officials will be watching the inauguration of Mitt Romney from a federal penitentiary. I hope.

"We Are All Cheeseheads"

The nation’s newest conservative superstar is Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

First and foremost congratulations are needed for the Governor, but most importantly the thousands of volunteers who made this win possible.

The hatred and vitriol shown by the union thugs in Wisconsin will only continue into the November election but on a much larger scale across the United States. Add Walker to the list of detested conservatives by the left, soon to join the ranks of Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin.

Liberal shenanigans occurred throughout the state with reporting a turnout of over 119% in Madison Wisconsin. Even with the zombie apocalypse occurring throughout the States, the dead couldn’t cast enough votes to elect Barrett Governor.

President Obama in a campaign tour near the cheese state earlier today wouldn’t even swing by and flaunt his support for Barrett. Whether this was because he knew of the impending loss, OR that he didn’t want to hamper Barrett’s chance of success even more.

This upcoming November be prepared to see ACORN and its affiliates in full force throughout the county. No wonder why the Obama administration’s Department of Justice is suing numerous states trying to enact measures to prevent voter fraud.

I would do anything to be in the same room with Ed Shultz, Rachel Maddow, and the whole MSNBC crew this evening. With plummeting ratings already they once again have nothing to hang their hat on.

All eyes were on Wisconsin this week and what this win proved more than anything is that boots on the ground and the drive to make change will always succeed. American’s for Prosperity was crucial in this win and through them I was given the chance to spread my resources toward Wisconsin. My “I Stand with Walker” rally sign will proudly remain on my wall till our nation is restored as a constant reminder of the needed rally cry.

What thrills me most about this win is that in special election after special election the liberal candidate continues to loose. Free markets and conservatism time and time again prevail. With God’s grace I pray that this recall election win carries over to November.
