Smart Blonde Drops Smart Bomb on Biden

Barbara West of WFTV Orlando ask Joe Biden some questions that were very reasonable to reasonable people, but caused Democrats to go postal. The Obama campaign has been playing in the Pee Wee league getting softball lobs from mainstream media types since the day Obama began campaigning. This time out on the playing field it was big league questions for the man who wants to be vice-president of the greatest country in the world, and he couldn’t handle it with any dignity.

West asked Biden if he thought Obama’s comment to spread the wealth around was a Marxist idea. That was like a smart bomb that was a direct hit to the Obama crowd. Within hours of the interview the WFTV Channel 9 station in Orlando was notified that there would be no more interviews given to that station until the election is over. That interview was then pulled from the station’s web site, but you can still find it on You Tube. A link can be found at hotair.com.

Well, well, if the wimpy men in Congress and in the big media can’t play hard ball just let girls like Sarah Palin and Barbara West step up to the plate more often and watch them do the job that the sissified men will not do.

While this incident is funny on one level it is very serious. Let us recap for a moment what has happened during the past several weeks. A team of about 30 lawyers went to Alaska looking for dirt on Governor Palin after she was selected the VP candidate for the GOP. Then Obama approached Joe the Plumber during a campaign stop where the two had a discussion about Obama’s ideas for America. After the plumber essentially made a fool out of Obama by pooh poohing the idea that his hard earned money should be spread around to others, then Joe became the target of a massive garbage inspection in an attempt to discredit this ordinary guy.

It is a short leap to understand that people running a campaign that tries to trash ordinary citizens and stiff arm businesses is likely to be a literal nightmarish machine once it acquires the highest office in the land combined with a Congress and media as willing co-oppressors.

The Hound Dog That Yelps

If you throw a rock into a pack of hounds it is easy to tell the one you hit. It will be the one that yelps. In my lifetime I have never seen the likes of yelping hounds like we have witnessed since Sarah Palin was selected as John McCain’s running mate.

Sarah struck a chord with conservatives and she struck like a rock the media hounds who are so liberal. She is a Christian who did not abort her Downs syndrome baby Trig. That knowledge about Palin is like hitting a liberal hound with a rock. If Palin were no threat, there would be no yelping by the media hounds.

While I cannot prove it, I think the Trig factor is the primary factor irritating the yelping media hounds. Trig is a constant reminder that he is a precious child, a gift from God, loved by God and loved by his Christian family. It reminds the yelping media hounds that deep, deep down there really is a God who does not approve of abortion, fornication that leads to most abortions, or any sin for that matter. The Christian life that is manifest so well by Palin is what hurts the media hounds so much they just have to yelp, or as the Bible states “The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; (Psalm 37:12)

While Palin draws huge crowds the liberal news outlets yelp about how she is not qualified, she is a drag on the ticket and McCain just showed a lack of judgment by selecting her. If she really were a poor candidate the yelping hounds wouldn’t be giving advice how she could be a better candidate. As it is they are terrified that she will not only help elect McCain, but she in fact may become president sometime in the future. Pardon the pun, but in the thinking of those yelping media hounds, heaven forbid that a woman like Palin would become president. My, my, my if Palin were president women’s reproductive rights would be set back to the stone age, or at least back to the time when coat hangers were invented. Furthermore homosexuals would have to hide in closets and pretend they are married.

The Power of Truth and Its Repetition

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

“And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. “(Deuteronomy 6:6-7)

“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31-32)

Read these two quotes:

“Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”
“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already….”

Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler respectively made those last two statements. Below are other quotations by these tyrants. Read all of them in light of the Scriptures above.

Adolph Hitler Quotes

1. “The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”
2. “Great liars are also great magicians.”
3. “Propaganda must not serve the truth, especially insofar as it might bring out something favorable for the opponent.”
4. “By means of shrewd lies, unremittingly repeated, it is possible to make people believe that heaven is hell — and hell heaven. The greater the lie, the more readily it will be believed.”
5. “The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force.”
6. “The great masses of the people … will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.”
7. “I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.”
8. “What luck for the rulers that men do not think.”
9. “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already…. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”

Joseph Stalin Quotes

1. “Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”
2. “Print is the sharpest and the strongest weapon of our party.”

The above quotes should give us pause for sober thought at the very least. However, we need to do more than “think”; we need to be in the business of “doing!”

Once I began school at the age of six, I spent the next 42 years associated with public education as a student for about half that time, a college teacher for 11 years and the last few years on a local school board. These experiences occurred in four different states. For practical purposes, there was not a nickel’s worth of difference between any of these public school systems.

During the 20 years since that time I continue to have an interest in the training of young people, and more specifically what the Bible has to say about this important matter.

People worry about who will be elected to be the next president of the United States. Fine, but it is far more important that Christians understand that education is a weapon and that its repetition has a powerful influence on all of us.

Let us assume that Stalin was right in that education is a weapon. Let’s also assume that Hitler was correct when he said people would believe “unremittingly repeated” lies. Should we not be teaching truth and repeating it often? Do you really think that truth telling will happen as long as children spend five days a week in public schools? As a matter of fact, contrary to truth, there are sinister teachings in public schools such as “no Jesus allowed,” “this is how you find out if you are gay”, and “this is how you kill your unborn baby.”

Let’s face it; Christians should not be having a debate on how to change public schools. Instead, we need to buckle down and follow God’s instructions as found in the Bible. Besides, at its core, secular public schooling never was commanded by God, or even suggested for that matter.

Parents, grandparents and others who teach should choose the correct weapon (Christian education) for our nation’s children, and then repeat those lessons unremittingly. If you don’t have a leader to follow concerning this issue then grab your Bible, get your orders, and do something yourself.

Whether or not you and I take up this charge there will always be tyrants ready to teach lies and repeat them often to our children. Then, after a while we will find those children standing in a new camp and they will know nothing else but a new community believing hell is heaven. Got it?
