Former President Jimmy Carter was on “Meet The Press” with Andrea Mitchell and revealed his own actions in response to government monitoring of electronic communications:
“I have felt that my own communications are probably monitored; and when I want to communicate with a foreign leader privately, I type or write the letter myself, put it in the Post Office and mail it, because I believe if I send an email, it will be monitored.”
The only people on the face of the earth who might be interested in what Jimmy Carter has to say would be the Obama administration looking for more successful domestic and foreign policy ideas. Because those might actually be an improvement.
Move over, “Animal House,” Hollywood’s got nothing on the federal government when it comes to buying booze.
Federal spending records show the government spends seven-figures a year stocking its cabinets with wine, beer and liquor.
In fiscal 2013, the last year for which there are complete records, the government spent almost $1.3 million on alcohol, more than quadruple the $315,000 spent in 2005. The spending on liquor has increased over the years toward the $1 million mark, with 2013’s tab growing more than $400,000 over 2012.
“You could say that Washington’s quite literally drunk on other people’s money,” said Jonathan Bydlak, president of the Coalition to Reduce Spending, a fiscal watchdog that advocates reduced federal expenditures.
“It’s very symbolic of the kind of problem we have in a whole host of government areas,” he said. “Obviously, the government operates in an environment with very few restraints. So unlike a business or a nonprofit, when they want to purchase for an event, they have to weigh it against expenses that people in government don’t.”
You can find the movie The Freedom of Silence on Netflix. If you have not seen it it is so close to what we are facing today and will face if we don’t stand up for our freedoms. I have included the trailer and the Dove Review. Please watch and let me know what you think If you have seen the move, please let me know what you think.
In the year 2030, America has become a twisted version of freedom. Truth is silenced, and those with bold faith are now terrorists – terrorists who must be hunted down and destroyed. With the help of his friend Aaron, a Navy SEAL with expert computer skills, Zach devises a plan to breach the government’s lockdown on rogue webcasts. But his proclamation of faith comes with a heavy price. Now, imprisoned by the ruthless government official, Jack Johansen, Zach must fight for his life, his friends, and his precious wife and children. But even with death pounding at his door, Zach must complete his mission – a mission from which, he may never return. The Freedom of Silence is a riveting story, one which will churn the fires for freedom in us all!
This movie shows exactly what might happen in the future of our country! The year is 2030 and America is now an anti-Christian nation due to the government which prevents Christians from the freedom of speech and the ability to worship God as they see fit. The Christians have been hit with “hate crimes” for speaking up about their beliefs. A zealous leader for the Christians, Zach Thompson, is arrested and beaten and tortured for his faith while sending away his wife and daughters to China to live with her parents so they might continue to worship God without fear of persecution or even death.
This film is well directed and features solid acting but it does hit a level three in the violence content. One man is repeatedly beat and blood nearly covers his face after a while. However, we are recommending it for our Faith Based Seal which means it contains some strong content (violence) but a strong faith message. It also contains a strong redemptive theme.

After being burned by his nomination of Debo Adegbile to head up the civil rights division at the Department of Justice, President Obama has jumped right back into the fray with another radical nominee, this time for Surgeon General.
But what makes Vivek Hallegere Murthy such a controversial choice for the post is not what you might expect. It’s not that he is a champion of late-term abortions (though he probably is) or believes in fully government-subsidized sex reassignment surgeries (though he probably does).
The problem with Murthy, rather, is his position on guns. Namely, he thinks one of the questions doctors should ask patients during a routine medical history is whether the person has any guns in his home.
Investors.com notes that Murthy, 36, is president and co-founder of Doctors for America, an anti-gun group that advocates making gun control a facet of the practice of medicine.
His group, which has been dubbed “Docs vs. Glocks,” has pushed Congress to ban “assault” weapons and “high-capacity” magazines.
He also wants to spend more tax dollars on more research to prove that fewer guns mean a lower crime rate, despite the fact that a number of reputable studies prove the opposite.
In a preliminary hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, Sen. Lamar Alexander asked Murthy about his social media comments on firearms, such as a tweet before the 2012 presidential election that included the odd claim that “guns are a health care issue.”
Murthy’s Twitter timeline is full of his anti-firearms screeds. A tweet from December 2012 reads, “NRA press conference disappointing but predictable — blame everything in the world except guns for the Newtown tragedy. #wakeup.”
Like so many gun control zealots, Murthy ignores the fact that mass shootings such as the one at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., occur in so-called gun-free zones where the only armed individual is the predator.
One especially troubling aspect of Murthy’s view that doctors should counsel their patients against exercising their Second Amendment rights is that such information entered into a patient’s private medical records would be available to the government under Obamacare

Earlier this afternoon, the House held its 50th Obamacare repeal vote, voting 250 to 160 in favor of a one-year delay on the individual mandate penalty. And that really, really stuck in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s craw:
The nerve of those Republicans (and 27 Democrats), trying to “undermine” a law as pure and solid as Obamacare! Don’t they know it’s “working”?
@DWStweets It's not working…
