DHS, DOMA, Sheriffs & The Dollar…Things Are changing
DHS lies to public; large movement of armored vehicles reported
Anthony Martin writes in “Examiner.com”: “Two weeks ago a source told the Examiner that DHS is amassing large amounts of deadly hollow-point bullets and procuring dozens of armored landmine-resistant vehicles. Anonymous sources inside DHS have confirmed that the agency has purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.
“DHS flatly denies the ammo purchases. The agency also refused to answer questions posed by Congress on the procurement of the armored vehicles. But a low-level DHS official confirmed that the agency has such vehicles, although their only use is to “serve high risk warrants.”

Before the Supreme Court this week…DOMA & Gay Marriage
I am appalled and astounded that the morality of our country has sunk to the level that our Supreme Court is hearing these arguments. When DOMA (Defense Of Marriage Act) was signed by Pres. Clinton, several times the legality and constitutionality of it was questioned, and affirmed! What has changed? Are we now writing laws, and getting rid of laws, based on “culture” and “political correctness?” Yes, I am afraid we are.
Here’s a quote I came across today that probably explains it: “Anyway, folks, the bottom line is that all of this discussion is academic. This is going to happen. Whether it happens now at the Supreme Court or somehow later, it is going to happen. It’s just the direction the culture is heading. There is hardly any opposition to this. The opposition that you would suspect exists is in the process of crumbling on it. There is a gay Mafia that has inflicted the fear of death, political death in the Republican Party, for example.
“There’s a lot of money. They donate most of it to the Democrats, but the societal peer pressure on this is immense, and it’s one of these things that people say, “This is not worth the political fallout of opposing. It’s not worth trying to educate people as to what problems might result from this. It’s not worth the historical explanation of why there is marriage and what its purpose is. It just isn’t worth it! It’s not worth standing up and fighting it.” It will be like the Republicans and every budget deal: “Well, you know what? We’ll let Obama have this, but we’ll stop him the next time.” It’s just going to be one of these things kicked, cans kicked, down the road.”
Folks…we are sowing to the wind on this…and one day we will reap the whirlwind!

Starbucks Support of Gays…
I received the following from American Family Association and thought it was important that you get this information.
Let Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz know you don’t agree with his company’s aggressive attempts to re-define marriage.
At the annual shareholder’s meeting last week, Starbucks CEO, Howard Shultz, insulted Christians throughout the country by suggesting they buy stocks in other coffee businesses if they do not agree with his position on same-sex marriage. It is no surprise that Starbucks supports homosexual marriage.
They have been sending liberal messages for years. But this is beyond anything we have seen from the left or the right. Shultz went as far as to tell shareholders who support Christian values to sell their stock and support other companies.
According to ChristianNews.net, Tom Strobhar, a shareholder, raised a question during the shareholder’s meeting about the significant drop in sales after a boycott from the National Organization for Marriage, who was protesting Starbucks support of homosexual marriage in Washington state.
See this interview in which Starbucks shareholder Tom Strobhar explains what happened at the meeting. It includes a clip of Mr. Shultz’ comments.
“In the first full quarter after this boycott was announced, our sales and our earnings, shall we say politely, were a bit disappointing,” said Strobhar.
In response, Starbucks’ CEO Shultz said the company’s decision to support gay marriage was not an economic one and snidely suggested Strobhar and other Christians who support natural marriage can take their investment elsewhere.
“If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38% you got last year, it’s a free country. You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much.”
1. Send an email to Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz, asking the company to remain neutral in the issue of gay marriage. We have prepared a letter for you to send. If you are a customer, please add your personal note to the message.
2. If you are a Starbucks shareholder, consider taking Mr. Shultz’ advice and sell your Starbucks stock.
3. Take strong action by resolving to no longer support Starbucks by taking your business elsewhere.
Same-Sex Marriage: A Convenient Distraction
Erik Rush writes: “I say “delusion” (that two homosexuals getting “married” doesn’t hurt them) because manifesting this societal paradigm will in fact hurt them – meaning society at large – because perpetuation of the homosexual lifestyle as represented in our culture does destabilize society. Despite the propaganda and the rhetoric, we know that embracing homosexuality has a dramatically deleterious effect on society. In the main, progressives have courted pusillanimous fools who would “allow” same-sex unions, but ban guns and dodge ball; they are too ignorant and self-righteous to realize that this is the road to tyranny.”

Ancient History & Modern Consitutional Powers of American Sheriffs – Part I
In this excellent two-part series, Kelly O’Connell writes: “Can America’s sheriffs save our Constitution and our precious liberties? The exhaustive history of the sheriff has yet to be written, but much is known of the rise of these county leaders, once called shire reeves, in old England. Sheriffs are termed the “the oldest appointment of the English crown.” They represent transition from simple local rule to a nationalized attempt at keeping law and order.”
He goes on to explain what a “Sheriff” is, then gives a history of our sheriff’s & their constitutional powers in our society.

Ancient History & Modern Consitutional Powers of American Sheriffs – Part II
“Now that the federal government has announced ambitions to limit gun rights, amongst many other new powers, a constitution-oriented group of sheriffs—the Oath Keepers—has decided to nullify these laws instead of applying them. It is quite possible that these Rogue Sheriffs represent the last vestiges of federalism and separation of powers meant to protect the citizens from an American tyranny. It is therefore quite fitting that the old West, independent lawman is being revived and updated to help save the American Republic.
This article describes their rise, establishment and continuation as perhaps the last bulwark against Washington, DC tyranny.

Intelligence Insider: Obama Administration Agenda to “Kill U.S. Dollar”
Doug Hagmann very clearly lays out details and facts that seem to bring clarity, context and focus with regard to all of the events we are constantly hearing about…but seem to lack legitimate explanation. It’s not a pretty picture!
Doug writes: “Some might be surprised to learn that the fate of America’s economy has already been determined, verified and announced by the Obama White House. Yet, it has received scant attention from the corporate media…In 2011, economist Kyle Bass interviewed a senior member of the Obama administration about its planned solutions for fixing the US economy and trade deficit. The question itself was not nearly as important as the response he received from this senior administration official. In fact, this single, seven word response clarifies everything, explains everything, and leaves little else to discuss: “We’re just going to kill the dollar”.”
He goes on, “By its very definition, to kill our national currency is an act of high treason by those engaged in this activity. It undermines the very sovereignty and survival of our nation, and will have a life-changing impact on every citizen in the U.S. It will also impact every nation and the people of every nation on the planet, as the USD is presently the world’s reserve currency. It is an act that should result in the filing of criminal charges against the conspirators, a trial of their peers and if convicted, a death sentence. It’s that serious.”
I believe this is a VERY IMPORTANT ARTICLE… We need to read it, & study its implications, then decide what we, as Americans, need to do. I encourage you to read the rest here…
