COLUMN: Wake up to the government's reality

— Are you familiar with executive order No. 13575 that has been signed into law by the president and the U.N. agenda 21. The things promoted by these marvelous sounding documents are like all governmental plans. We are here to help you, but it is just a way to get the camel’s nose under the tent. Before you can stop the beast, he is in and you are out in the cold.

Agenda 21 has not been voted on, but you must implore your representatives to vote against it. Agenda 21 openly targets private property. The U.N. wrongly contends private land ownership causes inequitable concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice. Healthy societies can only be achieved if land is communal and all used in the interest of society, not individuals. Seems to me that was tried by the Pilgrims and they nearly starved to death; it won’t work. Each family was given their own plot of land and there was plenty of food for every one. Just remember that your president is all about fairness.

The U.N. is still consumed with climate change and I have noticed that the climate is in a state of change constantly. The weather forecast on some channels gives the high and low temperatures for the date, and if you will notice the temperature for that date varies almost unbelievably over the years. Forty-nine former NASA scientists and astronauts sent a letter to NASA administrator Charles Bolden admonishing the agency for its role in advocating a high degree of certainty that man-made C02 is a major cause of climate change, while neglecting empirical evidence that calls the theory into question.

Do you remember Hillary Clinton screaming that she was sick and tired of hearing that dissent was unpatriotic? She said that debate and protest was the highest form of patriotism. We now have HR347 that will limit free speech based on what a Secret Service agent deems appropriate. The bill was cosponsored by a Republican and a Democrat. I don’t believe a speaker should be interrupted — all discourse should be civil. I could be slightly biased, but it seems to me that liberals are ardently in love with free speech, only when they are speaking.

Don’t forget to read up on the history of Argentina, before you make a decision on who to vote for this coming presidential election. It went from one of the wealthiest nations to one of the poorest and an inflation rate of 3000 percent. We are headed in that direction.

One more minor observation, we hear that the president is a constitutional lawyer.

In my opinion the only reason that he has an interest is the Constitution is to see how it can be dismantled. It’s obvious that he doesn’t like the restraints that it puts on big government. He sees it as a flawed document that thwarts communism.

    In recent years I’ve written quite a bit about the introduction and negative consequences of non-native or invasive species. Fire ants, killer bees, English sparrows, Asian carp, feral hogs and others too numerous to list have forever changed our local ecosystem.

    Have you seen those TV offers where they give a price for one product and then offer a second like items for-free? All you have to do is pay a separate shipping and handling charge for the “free” items.

  • John Paul Carter-color.jpg NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: What’s in a name?

    Names are important. When my son, Rush, (who’s named after my father) and his wife, Vanessa, were expecting their third daughter, I gave up on having a male namesake and suggested, in jest, they call her “Johnnie Pauline.”

    The church in the Old Testament lived under a theocracy. That is, both the church and state were one. God anointed kings. Civil laws and religious laws were one and the same.

    On March 21, this paper published an article about a six-month drug trafficking investigation involving 12 people. On the front page was a photo of the 12 people involved. The use of drugs had made them a sorry-looking bunch. The look in their eyes was particularly disturbing.

    In 1965, the chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, Wilbur Mills, brought legislation establishing Medicare and Medicaid to the floor of the U.S. House. That was my first year in Congress, and I remember vividly the moment when Mills came to the Democratic caucus to explain his plans.

    The purpose that God has given to His people is to be holy. He has likewise given His people a mission. The mission of God’s people, the church of Jesus Christ, is as clear as His revealed purpose.
