The final countdown has begun and the November Mid-Term Elections will be upon us before we know it. If there was ever a time to stand up and be counted it is now.
We are Americans and living in the land of the Free and the Home of the Brave and yet there are those among us who would destroy all that America stands for.
I have to ask, how can any native born American desire to destroy all that has been fought for by those who have gone before us for the sake of an ideology of liberal socialism that has been proven to fail worldwide?
The internet has been full of rage over the ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’ we have found under President Obama, and one has to wonder just what each and everyone of us is willing to do in order to preserve this last great hope of mankind on earth.
The November Mid-Term Elections will be upon us before we know it and the time to act is now if we are ever going to win back our Country and our Freedoms.
Sadly, most Americans aren’t paying attention to the perils we face as a Free People.
Sadly, most Americans are preoccupied with the everyday cares of life and leisure while others are sounding the alarm of eminent destruction.
Americans have not been this divided on the future course of this Country since the Civil War.
The year is 2015 and America is under a state of Marital Law after the defeat of liberal Democrats and Republicans in the 2014 Mid Term Elections. In a move described by many as a complete overthrow of the new Conservative Government President Barack Obama decreed the election illegal and instituted Martial Law in an effort to control the protests that engulfed America.
High ranking Tea Party members of the Congress and Senate were rounded up and isolated from the American Public. The internet kill switch was used to stop any and all political activity and many Americans were placed under house arrest and or sent to re-indoctrination camps.
Overseas the Russia Government seized control of the Ukraine while massing troops along the Turkish boarders. In the Pacific, China launched a full scale invasion of Taiwan while at the same time North Korea invaded and seized control of South Korea.
America’s military was ordered to stand down as a world wide conflict began to take shape. Homeland Security along with other government agencies were given complete authority over our military as they worked to subdue the American Militias and other small pockets of resistance within the the United States.
Although this fiction may be a far fetched scenario of things to come, one has to wonder if President Obama’s words to the Russian President might have meant more than any of us ever imagined.
Here is the transcript of that caught on mic conversation:
Only in America can you find a movement of People who aren’t satisfied with the Freedom they have to Believe or Not Believe, but rather have to go on the attack against the beliefs of others. In my view this is just another Progressive/Liberal attempt to break down the Moral Fiber of America.
Two generations ago something called Secular Humanism began to creep into our Society and our School Systems across the Nation. This along with the re-writing of American History, a crusade began in our schools to indoctrinate our children with a God-less and Corrupted philosophy. The simple fact that Laws were enacted to remove Prayer and the teaching of Biblical History and Values from our schools is proof positive of this evil agenda perpetrated by the Socialists living in America.
Evolution has been taught in our Public Schools and Collages as a Theory for some time now. My question is, why is not Creation also being taught right along side of Evolution as an equal Theory? A Higher Power could certainly be introduced in such a way as to not push any one particular Religion or Belief System.
Here is a Man who was Born in an Obscure Village, the Child of a Peasant Woman. He grew up in another obscure village where He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family or owned a house. He never went to college. He never visited a big city. He never traveled more than two hundred miles from the place where He was born. He did none of those things one usually associated with greatness. He had no credentials but himself…
He was only thirty-three when the tide of Public Opinion turned against Him. His friends ran away. One of them denied him. He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While dying, His executioners gambled for his clothing, the only piece of property He had on earth. When He was dead, He was taken down and laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.
Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today He is the Central Figure of the Human Race and the Leader of mankind’s progress. All the Armies that have ever marched, all the Navies that ever sailed, all the Parliaments that ever sat and all the Kings that ever Reigned put together have not affected the life on earth of mankind as Powerfully as that One Solitary Life.

For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes–the Jew first and also the Gentile.
TheBlaze’s Carly Hoilman contributed to this report.
The centerpiece of Driscoll’s new book titled, ”A Call to Resurgence: Will Christianity Have a Funeral or a Future?,” is that we’re living in a “post-Christian culture — a culture fundamentally at odds with faith in Jesus.”
The pastor recently told TheBlaze that he believes cultural norms are rapidly shifting in American society and that these changes come at the same time that Christianity is losing its place of prominence.
“A commitment to secularism to pluralism has really come very, very rapidly, and certain issues like gay marriage have accelerated and highlighted that,” Driscoll said. “More biblical, conservative traditions…values have gone from being respected to really despised in very short order.”
Driscoll explained that 40 years ago, homosexuality was still listed in psychological manuals and textbooks as a mental disorder, and now it is considered a civil right. He added, “That’s a quick flip.”
“We are living in a post-Christian culture — a culture fundamentally at odds with faith in Jesus.”
He believes that there’s been a paradigm shift in society from “morality to personality.”
Rather than moral absolutes governing what’s right or wrong, Driscoll said that there’s a general view that people should be true to themselves — that they should essentially stand by their feelings and desires.
“We’ve shifted from a worldview where there is a God who makes laws, and they apply to you, to whether or not there is a God it does not matter — ‘I don’t recognize any laws external to me. The only thing that guides me is my own internal convictions,’” he said. “Authority has shifted from external to internal, from God to me. And what you end up with is not a discussion of morality but a defense of personality. And that’s the world we live in.”
Driscoll believes that there is “a culture of complete anarchy in the name of tolerance and diversity.”
“One in four women sexual assaulted, one in six men, people that are sexually addicted, sexually assaulted, sexually abused, rampant debt, broken families, suicidal,” he told TheBlaze. “The number one category of prescription medication is antidepressants. Somebody’s gotta stand up and say, ‘This ain’t working — we gotta try something else.’”
One of the big questions facing Christians, the pastor said, is how to peacefully exist in this context of change without compromising values and theology.
“Christians need to understand that Christians and non-Christians just disagree about a lot of things,” he said. “We disagree about where we come from, we disagree about why we’re here, we disagree about what we’re supposed to do, we disagree with what we’re supposed to do with our pots and our pans and our genitals and our wallets — we just disagree on all kinds of things.”
Driscoll went on to say that one of the biggest threats to Christians is the assumption that compromising on what they believe will help them or serve a positive purpose for the non-believers they interact with. Doing this, he said, simply doesn’t work for anyone
With the changing cultural dynamics, Driscoll warned that Christians need to start getting better at understanding suffering and dealing with pushback, as they’re poised to receive more of it.
“In the West we’re not really familiar with suffering [and] Christendom and Christians have tended to be in a position of power, a respected position, and so all the issues surrounding suffering and criticism and such — we’re not very good at that,” he said. “And it’s something we’d better get better at pretty quickly because it’s just going to get harder to stay true to what we believe.”
Driscoll said that it’s becoming increasingly difficult for people to be Bible-believing — and practicing — Christians and that there are “no social perks to being a Christian” in today’s society.
The decreasing role and reverence for churches is also noticeable, Driscoll said. While houses or worship were once much-respected, today he believes that this dynamic has profoundly changed.
“The churches, for the most part, held a very respected place in society — and if you’re going to be a good business leader, a good citizen, a moral person, well obviously you believe in God and you’re involved in some religious community,” he said. “So what that led to was really a lot of people who weren’t committed to their religious beliefs — they didn’t really live them out — but they would sort of wave the flag because of the social benefits that came with it.”
Driscoll believes the social benefits and connotations the church once offered are decreasing. Being ostracized or marginalized for being in the pews makes it somewhat less appealing to participate in church. While he doesn’t necessarily believe that there are fewer Christians, he said “the teams have gotten very clear.”
“Somebody’s gotta stand up and say, ‘This ain’t working — we gotta try something else.’”
Fewer of those who went or go to church mainly to bask in these benefits are now doing so and for obvious reasons; the purported benefits are diminishing.
With the changing dynamics, Christians have to find a balance, Driscoll argued. What battles will they choose to fight? Which will they choose to ignore? Of these concerns, Driscoll said, ”You can’t fight over everything, and you’re not very courageous if you won’t fight for anything.”
The pastor said it’s important to decide what’s worth fighting for and then to be prepared to deal with the consequences of speaking out.
Driscoll expounds upon these themes in “A Call to Resurgence: Will Christianity Have a Funeral or a Future?”
DENVER – The Russians are coming — in fact, they’re already here — but it may not be what you think.
The two nations’ militaries have been conducting joint exercises for years, but this is believed to be the first time Russian soldiers have trained on U.S. soil, Lt. Col. Steven Osterholzer said.
The Russians and Americans are training together on basic soldier skills ranging from firing weapons to making parachute drops, said Osterholzer, a public affairs officer for the 10th Special Forces Group.
It’s the first step toward joint exercises in more complicated anti-terrorism operations such as helicopter drops, he said.
“This is the shake-hands, get-to-know-you kind of thing,” Osterholzer said. “What this is not is a massive counterterrorism exercise.”
“Conspiracy theorists are alive and well,” he said. Some people who’ve called Osterholzer have said President Barack Obama is a communist, or that the Russians plan to kidnap Americans and take them back to Russia, or that the training is a step toward universal world government.
“It’s been an interesting two weeks at the public affairs office,” he said.
The training is the result of a U.S.-Russian agreement signed a year ago. The objectives are to create a basic relationship between the two nations’ militaries and to build an understanding about how each other’s military works, including communications, Osterholzer said.
That knowledge is vital in joint military and humanitarian operations such as anti-terrorism measures and disaster relief, he said.
At Fort Carson, the training involves only unclassified weapons, and the Russians have U.S. escorts around the clock to make sure “they stay where they’re supposed to be,” Osterholzer said.
“These soldiers are not running around amok on their own,” he said.
The Russians are staying in a military hotel on Fort Carson but otherwise spend their on-duty and off-duty time with their American counterparts. They’ll also take in a baseball game, watching the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, a minor-league affiliate of the Colorado Rockies.
“The visit has gone amazingly well and smooth,” Osterholzer said. “They’re excited to be here. They’re motivated, they’re professional. And our soldiers are the same.”
The Russian contingent includes a colonel but most are enlisted soldiers. They arrived Sunday by commercial aircraft and will leave June 1, again flying commercially.
Next year, an equal number of U.S. soldiers from 10th Special Forces Group are expected to go to Russia for similar exercises, Osterholzer said.
If Martial Law were to be Declared there is a good chance U.S. Troops would not Obey Orders against Americans nor the
