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.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Now is the time for all good men...

    When man’s greed, desire for riches, power and control of our nation become greater than their love of humanity and our country, by constantly fomenting discord and hate among the citizens, warmongering and constantly talking of wars against other nations - it is putting political ideology before the welfare of citizens and country. It is time for We the People to take a good look at these men involved - no matter their status in our nation, we call the United States of America and decide whether or not they deserve the privilege and sanctuary of our nation.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: Finding a church

    God commands His people to “keep holy the Sabbath Day.” The “Sabbath Day” was changed by the apostolic church to the first day, Sunday. The church refers to every Sunday as the Lord’s Day. Each Lord’s Day is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Therefore, a professing Christian will seek to find a local church in which to invest in the kingdom and worship the King!

  • John Paul Carter-color.jpg NOTES FROM THE JOURNEY: What’s your current address?

    Shortly after we moved to Weatherford 19 years ago, the old post office (today’s Court Building) that was literally bursting at the seams was replaced by a new, larger facility – our present mail center that sometimes seems outgrown as we stand in line to buy stamps or mail a package.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Good company, better service

    We would like to thank Devin’s Handyman Service, Gary Boase, David Schramm and James Reed for the wonderful job they did repainting our front fence, front porch, back porch, patio and deck. Everything looks new and makes such a difference in our home.

  • PASTOR POPHIN: The joy of unity in church

    Do you enjoy going to church? I mean, do you really enjoy going to church? No matter how you answer, there are some common reasons — or perhaps we would call them conditions — that would cause all of us to truly enjoy going to church.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Don't judge a book...

    Dear Editor: Thursday night, July 17, I was present for a surprisingly interesting experience when state representative candidate Matthew Britt addressed a small group of supporters, followed by a question and answer session.

  • larry jones cropped:color NOW HEAR THIS: The blessing of memories

    Many years ago, shortly after I retired from the navy, I was sitting around shooting the breeze with my brother David, when he remarked that he regretted never serving in the military and experiencing the things I had seen. Like most of our farmer ancestors, he spent his entire life within five miles of where he grew up. Not unlike our parents, he could also count on the fingers of one hand the number of times he had even been out of the state of Texas and probably have digits to spare.

    Immigration: Wow! Where are all these illegal boys and girls coming from, and why? The “why” is a big question! I’m sure 5-year-olds are not coming for a better life and income.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: Signs and seals

    God gave the church signs and seals. These are called sacraments or holy ordinances. They are both holy and commanded. There are two sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ. They are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. These sacraments are often referred to as “secondary doctrine.” They are secondary not because they are unimportant. They are secondary because they are not necessary for salvation.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Response to 'Blame game'

    Dear Editor: It’s not drug cartels telling Central Americans their children won’t be turned away at the border, it is the actions of this administration with its refusal to secure the border and its unilateral rewriting of immigration law. As has been shown, this president and his administration have for some time lied about the security of the border and immigration enforcement.
