Howling For Wolves condemns three wildlife killing contests to be held this weekend in Minnesota as cruel, ineffective, and disastrous for wildlife

by Rev. Austin Miles

This came to me as an urgent Press Release which I gladly have posted on my website: http://www.revaustinmiles.com and on the news wire. People, please put a stop to this march to cruelty contest.

Animals have the same feelings we do including pain, fear, anxiety, distress, grief and yes, even love. So these targeted animals will experience the same pain you would experience if you were the hunted in this barbaric “sport.”  Below is the contact numbers for Howling for Wolves that protects animals.

PRESS RELEASE FROM HOWLING FOR WOLVES
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 18, 2019
CONTACT: Dr. Maureen Hackett, Howling For Wolves, 612.250.5915, or Leslie Rosedahl at 651.353.1818, respond@howlingforwolves.org

(St. Paul) – Three wildlife killing contests will be hosted this weekend in Minnesota. These contests target coyotes and foxes.

The sponsors of this atrocity and their phone numbers are listed below. With courtesy, urge them to pull their sponsorship;

West Metro Coyote Hunting Tournament (Watertown, Minnesota): Host-  Hollywood Sports Complex: (952) 955-2424

Buffalo Ridge Coyote Hunting Tournament (Marshall, Minnesota): Host-  Brau Brothers Brewing: (507) 929-2337

Minndak Coyote Tournament (Randolph, Minnesota): Host- Roscoe’s Roadhouse: (507) 263-5157

“Wildlife killing contests are cruel, ineffective, and do not reflect Minnesota’s tradition of sportsmanship and respect for the outdoors,” said Joe Wolf, board member of Howling For Wolves.

Hunts like this are unregulated – with no rules, and no limits.

“Killing contests are wrong for many reasons; First, there is no place in a civil society for wildlife killing contests. These types of tournaments are disastrous to wildlife and the balance of ecosystems, and simply glorify violent behavior by encouraging killing simply for the sake of killing.

Second, organizers of these events often claim that they are helping to control predator populations. The fact is, this is not about controlling wildlife populations. This is about thrill-killing, a nonsensical, savage contest to see who can kill the most. Finally, we need the fox to control infectious diseases, including Lyme disease,” said Wolf.

The phone number of the sponsors of this horrendous killing party are shown above. Please contact them with courtesy and urge them to call off his dastardly deed which makes all of us look like savages

Rev. Austin Miles is the author of the just published book, God and Animals-What the Bible Says About Animals and Heaven. Here is a link with information of this book that celebrates all animals: https://www.capitolhilloutsider.com/new-animal-book-answers-the-question/
The book is available on Amazon.

EMM commentary:  Every little outside feral cat we had has been eaten by coyotes, every rabbit, every skunk has been killed. I have no problem destroying coyotes who destroy people’s pets.  They are a menace and a predator that needs to be eliminated.  Wolves attack and kill ranch animals…there’s a limit to everything.  I’m sorry but wolves have become a menace to ranchers  and it’s all because of releasing them where they don’t belong.

 


Is the New One World Leader Here?

by Rev. Austin Miles

Remember when a sudden new leader was thrust upon the world even though nothing was known about him? No information about him came forth, birth records, school records, academic records were ‘not available.’ And they got away with not providing any records or papers on a man named Obama.

Soros’ biggest selling point was that Obama was black. The only thing about him that was known, and exploited was his name, Barack Hussein Obama. Didn’t the public know that was a Muslim name?  But they didn’t care. Somebody else would take care of everything.

George Soros did a masterful job in keeping Obama’s birthplace secret since a presidential candidate is required to have been born in the United States.

Great effort was taken to hide the fact that Obama was born in Kenya. I checked the Kenya Newspaper archives where celebratory stories proudly proclaimed that, “Barack Hussein Obama who was born and raised here in Kenya, one of us, has been appointed as Illinois Senator of The United States.” To prove Obama was one of them, they included his Kenya birth certificate which I saw. Yet the Soros Communists managed to duck that fact.

Plenty of George Soros money was invested into this black man who was pushed into the United States Senate. Lots of money can make things happen.

Obama was to become President of the United States under the sponsorship of George Soros and the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), the greatest hoax ever perpetrated upon the world.  His job was to wreck the U.S.A. from the inside and turn it into a Communist dictatorship.

Masterfully crafting his hoax, George Soros started a publicity campaign which got a lot of press, since Soros owns most of the media in America. Voting Obama into office was an excellent way, Soros Proclaimed, for America to sooth its conscious of its mistreatment of blacks in America and making them slaves. 

Obama failed to pull off his assignment. I believe that God Himself stopped him.

And I believe that God Himself put it on the hearts of all Christians, over 62 million of them, to vote Donald Trump in as President of The United States.He is the only one who could straighten up the mess Obama left behind.

So we managed to dodge that bullet. Obama left a lot of damage to our country, but left thinking he was still president and bought an elaborate mansion within walking distance to The White House. Even so, he did not accomplish what he had been assigned.

However, we now have a second part of this story as the completion of the first story did not happen as planned.

Many readers slept as the Obama debacle unfolded. They could not be bothered.  Now be advised that YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!  A new one is on the horizon.

His name is: Abdul El-Sayed.  He too is being groomed by George Soros. He has been hand-picked by the Left to be their next “champion” of Hope and Change.

He is 32 years old, born in the USA, and an extremely well-educated Muslim Doctor in Detroit, Michigan. His education was funded by Soros. He is handsome, articulate, charismatic and….SMART.

He is sympathetic of the Muslim Brotherhood and is running for Governor of Michigan. Which is Step 1 in his preparation to run for President of the United States. He has the potential to be Obama #2, but more openly Muslim.

Abdulrahman Mohamed El-Sayed is an American physician, epidemiologist, public health advocate, and politician. He has announced his candidacy for Governor of Michigan, running as a Democrat.

Here are the Stats:

Born: October 31, 1984, Michigan.

Awards: Rhodes Scholarship: Paul and Daisy Soros; Fellowships for New Americans.

Education: University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (BA); Oriel College, Oxford (MA, Ph.D); Columbia University (MD).

Political Party: Democratic-Communist Party

In 2020 he will be eligible to run for President!

Democrats’ mouths are watering in anticipation and raising money. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren is already campaigning for him.

Another Trojan Horse?  Al Jazeera, which is widely read by Michigan’s large Muslim population is doing its best to help Soros make him “YOUR” president in 2020!

Google: Abdul El-Sayed-Soros

Do not let this happen again.

Our sincere thanks to reader Carol Heimbach who alerted us to this story

The Truth About Thomas Jefferson’s Koran

By Jim O’Neill

The Protestants alone are able to attack the Koran with success; and for them, I trust, Providence has reserved the glory of its overthrow.

George Sales (1697-1736) From the introduction to “Jefferson’s Koran

Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.

Barack Obama

We’re going to impeach the motherf–ker.

Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib referring to President Trump

Obama is on record as stating that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”  Is that true?  Well yes, sort of.

If by “woven into the fabric of our country” you mean “following the Revolutionary War, Muslims were America’s first international enemies,” then yes, it’s true.  Muslim pirates helped to kick start the US Navy into existence.  Anchors aweigh Islam!

There was a definite downside to the United States gaining its freedom from Great Britain.  Among the thornier problems our fledgling country faced was the fact that America lost the mantle of protection offered by Great Britain’s large fleet of naval ships.  This meant that it was open season on American merchant ships in the Atlantic, and especially the Mediterranean – and Muslim pirates in the area were quick to jump on the opportunity.

For about 600 years, from the thirteenth to the seventeenth centuries, the pirates or corsairs of Barbary preyed on European commerce, taking thousands [some say over a million] of prisoners, and selling them as slaves in the mines or the galleys. European women were especially prized for their light complexions, fetching premium prices in the harems. Though prisoners could, in theory, be ransomed, the going rates for redemption were invariably high. The lives of most of the slaves, by contrast, were brutal, cruel and mercifully short.

 …In a single six-month period between 1783 and 1784, the Barbary states sacked three American vessels. The crewmen were paraded down the streets of Fez and Algiers, pelted with rotten vegetables and offal, and thrown before the emperor or the pasha who reportedly told them, “I’ll make you eat stones, Christian dogs,” and then sold them to the highest bidders.

Michael B. Oren “The Middle East and the Making of the United States, 1776 to 1815

For those wishing to delve deeper into the topic I recommend Robert C. Davis’s book “Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters: White Slavery in the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast, and Italy, 1500-1800

Interwoven into our national fabric indeed.  The great European fleets of France and Britain could shrug off the pesky corsairs, or Barbary pirates, as the Muslims were called.  Michael Oren notes that for the British and French “the pirates were little more than a nuisance, scarcely worth a broadside, much less a war.”

Such was not the case for the United States, whose merchant ships were essentially defenseless once they left America’s ports.  In 1794 George Washington authorized the building of six frigates “adequate for the protection of the commerce of the United States against Algerian corsairs.”

The U.S. Navy thus was born, a contentious but honorable birth, intended not to rule the waves but to free them.

Michael B. Oren “Power, Faith, and Fantasy

Well, sort of.  The birth of the US Navy had rather bumpy beginnings.  The US Navy celebrates October 13, 1775 as its official birthday, but that navy, the Continental Navy, active during the Revolutionary War, was nowhere to be seen soon after the war ended.  Then Washington restarted it with his six frigates, and Jefferson jumped in and…well, as I say, bumpy beginnings.

The bottom line is, we have the Muslims to thank for the birth (rebirth if you prefer) of the US Navy.  Which brings us to the topic of Jefferson’s Koran (Quran).

Recently, Rashida Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, chose to be sworn in on a copy of the Quran that once belonged to Thomas Jefferson.

“It’s important to me because a lot of Americans have this kind of feeling that Islam is somehow foreign to American history,” she told the Detroit Free Press. “Muslims were there at the beginning.”

“Muslims were there at the beginning.”  Yes indeed, they sure were, as we have seen.  It is worth noting that America won its first overseas land battle against a foreign enemy by defeating Muslim troops at the “Battle of Derne” (Derna) in present day Libya during the “1st Barbary War” in 1805.  The leader of the US Marine detachment involved in the battle was presented with a ceremonial Mameluke sword after the battle – replicas of this sword are worn by Marine Corps officers to this day.

Longtime Congress watchers will recall Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), America’s first Muslim member of the body, also used Jefferson’s Koran for his 2007 swearing-in. “It demonstrates that from the very beginning of our country, we had people who were visionary, who were religiously tolerant, who believed that knowledge and wisdom could be gleaned from any number of sources, including the Koran,” Ellison told the Associated Press at the time.

Yair Rosenberg “The complicated history of Thomas Jefferson’s Koran

The copy of the Koran that Jefferson owned was translated by George Sales in 1734.  You will recall from the quote of Sales that began this article that he believed that “Providence has reserved the glory of [Islam’s] overthrow” to the Protestants.  Hardly a Kumbaya sentiment of multicultural solidarity.  So why would these Congressional Muslims use a Quran that is admittedly designed to “overthrow” Islam?  In a word – ignorance.

 

In 1786 Thomas Jefferson, along with John Adams, visited a Muslim ambassador in London, England.  In a letter to then Secretary of Foreign Affairs, John Jay, Jefferson wrote:

We took the liberty to make some inquiries concerning the Grounds of their pretentions to make war upon Nations who had done them no Injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation.

It should be noted that the United States had been paying extortion money to the Muslim pirates, who kept upping the ante (by the year 1800 these extortion payments amounted to 20% of the American government’s expenditures).

The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.

Thomas Jefferson “American Commissioners to John Jay, March 28, 1786

As the late Christopher Hitchens wrote concerning the Muslim ambassador’s reply: “Medieval as it is, this has a modern ring to it.”  Indeed, it does, more’s the pity.

I do not know how John Adams (2nd president of the United States) felt about Islam, but I have no doubt how one of his sons, John Quincy Adams (6th president of the United States), felt.  John Quincy Adams, fervently anti-slavery, is perhaps best remembered these days for his passionate and cogent defense of a group of Africans who commandeered a Spanish slave ship, as depicted in the movie “Amistad.”  In an essay he wrote on the long series of Russo-Turkish wars (17th century to 20th century) he left no doubt about his feelings about Islam:

Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he [Mohammed] humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion.  He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind.  THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST — TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE….  Between these two religions [Christianity and Islam], thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant….  While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.   [The words in caps are as originally printed].

John Quincy was not one to beat around the bush…but back to Jefferson.  I do not believe that he bought a copy of the Quran in order to glean “knowledge and wisdom,” but rather to better understand America’s enemies.

Shortly after being sworn in as president (3rd president of the United States) Jefferson stopped all extortion payments to the Muslim pirates and sent US Navy warships to confront them in the Mediterranean.  Soon afterwards the United States (and Sweden) were fighting Muslims in the “1st Barbary War” (1801-1805).

In truth, the “1st Barbary War” was neither a beginning nor an end, but merely one installment in the ongoing “long war.”   Tours, Lepanto, Vienna…those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.

Pope Francis-“Christians Must Reject Sovereignty-Embrace Globalism”

by Rev. Austin Miles

The Vatican—1/6/19-Pope Francis just stated clearly that Christians must reject Sovereignty and embrace Globalism in order to make the world a better place.  WHAT?? 

That sentence is actually saying that Christians must reject Democracy and embrace Globalism-meaning-Communism. Read that statement again.

Pope Francis identified himself as a Communist when he first addressed the public following his inauguration as Pope. It was never a secret, especially since he came from Argentina, a Communist country.

This writer who keeps close tabs on The Vatican and Washington, D.C.    watched in astonishment as the new prelate was brought on the floor, having never heard of him, saw him, nor witnessed any activities he exercised as a Cardinal.  He obviously had been virtually kept out of sight until this Divine Appointment orchestrated by George Soros.

We knew that George Soros had bought his way into the Vatican where he manipulated the Catholic Church from behind the scenes. That is where all confusion regarding that religious group began. But first, let’s begin at the beginning.

To receive blessings from God and to be able to fully serve God is based totally upon the holiness of the people approaching God’s Throne. The word ‘Holiness” is a Biblical term which is better translated as righteous living i.e. Living according to God’s Word, being honest, and exhibiting integrity at all times.

I have known many Holy priests during my lifetime, read the books of others, and I met one pope, Pope John V1 during an audience with him at the Vatican on World Communications Day where he gave me a small gold neck chain with pendant of his image which I still wear.

The reason for my invitation was that I was one of the first to have a religious program broadcast over the satellite reaching the entire world.  He was such a man of God that I could feel the anointing upon him even a few feet away.

George Soros got his grip on the Vatican and Catholic decisions. Someone in the hierarchy had given in to him. Most men have a price. Then the scandal of active homosexual priests began making headlines and causing division in the Catholic Church. And Soros made certain that this made international headlines since he controls most of the media.

What made matters worse, the Catholic Church began accepting obvious homosexuals in the seminaries, which they should NEVER have done. Common sense would have dictated that.  Altar Boys and Boys Choirs became the perverted playground for these sick ‘priests.’

The Catholic Priesthood would of course, appeal to homosexuals since they could wear costumes and capes while working in elegant surroundings with a lot of pomp and ceremonies while showing power. It is a constant living drama.

I personally doubt that any in the original Catholic hierarchy would have allowed sodomites to become priests or even to attend Catholic Seminary. This could only have been orchestrated by George Soros and his money. This would weaken the church and its congregations. And that was the point.

The church was the strength of many people who would be a threat to Communists. The ‘party’ could never enslave the minds of truly Christian people. This is why Soros and his cohort Democrats declared war on the church itself.

This entire story is exceedingly painful to write since I once considered becoming a Catholic Priest before becoming a Protestant minister and chaplain.

When the church lost its holiness, problems began to arise reaching a crescendo when an unknown, named Jorge Mario Bergoglio was positioned in the Vatican as Pope Francis. The inauguration ceremony introduced the new “Pope” who said that the first thing he was going to do was…now get this…“Re-distribute the wealth!” That is right out of the Book of Marx.

Then the following week he did a sermon in which he declared that “all rich people are going to hell.”  A wealthy woman in Pittsburgh called me frantically after hearing that, almost crying, saying to me, “I’ve worked hard and have a lot of money as a result, but this means that I’m going to hell like the pope said? I don’t want to go to hell!”

The Catholic Church for centuries was the epitome of strength and leadership. People followed the church leaders and generously supported the church to the extent that they had their own bank in Rome. It did not take too long for the bank to come under investigation because of misuse of funds, in other words, embezzlement. The sin had already begun.

Sex was always a problem going back to when priests and nuns were shacking up, resulting in pregnancies, abortions with the dead babies secretly buried behind various church buildings. I remember as a child hearing about this and being shown where they were buried. A lot of people knew about this. So why did they not rise up in righteous anger to put a stop to this?

Now, sin has totally taken over the church by the LGBTQ, meaning those who spend their lives in pursuit of the most sinful and health risking sexual practices, all which is an abomination to God.

How on earth could these wretches put on their collars each morning. Still, it is to be noted that sodomites have no conscious. The priests are not only to be holy in their own character but an effective teacher of God and the Bible.

How on earth can anyone stand as an authority on God and the Bible while living in the most filthy sin ever and not even thinking of the confession he is hearing, but thinking ahead to his next sodomite encounter?

As sin spread throughout the church, with an outraged nation reading the headlines, the weakening began. The church lost prestige and its authority. It began losing people, the Vatican lost enormous amounts of money due to lawsuits by victims of church rape.

Yes, rape. An authority figure who forces someone under his authority into sex, is a criminal and should be put in prison. I know what that is. A cub scout master named John Brockdorf violently sexualized me when I was 11 years old.

Churches have been closed due to financial collapse due to the lawsuits that could absolutely have been prevented by truly Holy Priests.  And these results have made George Soros proud. Mission Accomplished.

Only a Holy Church and a Holy priest, minister, chaplain can make the world a better place instead of the garbage can it has become. Preachers must preach the Gospel, preach against sin of all kinds, even those sins which cannot be considered great.

Sin is sin and even the slightest is a stain upon the person, the church they attend and friends and neighbors in the community. It affects all.

Preachers, take some quiet time in your study with no interruptions to think clearly about the vows you took before ordination in which you pledged a lifetime of service to God.

That service means constant prayer, study of Scriptures, and preaching a message that glories God and condemns Satan and the sinners he has corrupted. We are to be a representative of God wherever we go.

You are to be above all else, not ‘just a good ole boy who is just like one of us.’  We are supposed to be separate from the world (their passions and entertainment), yet part of the world in order to carry an aura of peace and God’s love into any situation encountered.

And to always be polite and courteous, to always keep your word, let integrity be with you during every step of the journey, and if ever you are given too much change, return that overage immediately, or, if discovered when you get home, drive back and return it.

We are to live the Gospel at all times. People should never hesitate or be afraid to approach you. We are to exhibit ourselves as Servants of God at all times.

Preachers, it is all up to you. MAN YOUR PULPITS!


Overflow Crowd Greets Garth Brooks’ Stadium Concert

by Rev. Austin Miles

University of Notre Dame 12/29/18. Last night-(Friday-28th), a country singer not only performed in the gigantic Notre Dame football stadium, but did so before a crowd of over 85,000 attendees, meaning capacity.  There were also  a couple thousand extra seats set up around the stage also filled. The event was televised by CBS. A tip of the beret to CBS TV.

WASHINGTON – JANUARY 18: Musician Garth Brooks performs at “We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration At The Lincoln Memorial” January 18, 2009 in Washington, DC. The event includes a diverse array of talent featuring both musical performances and historical readings and an appearance by U.S. President-elect Barack Obama. (Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images)

Some naysayers speculated that there was no way any country singer would fill that stadium, but Garth Brooks did! And this was the first time ever that Notre Dame Stadium presented a country singer.

Brooks noted that practically every young man participating in sports have said their dream is to play this place (Notre Dame Stadium) That would be the ultimate. Brooks then confessed that he too had such a dream…to play this place.

The off and on rain, heavy at times, did nothing to slow down the pace of the Concert. It was all perfectly spaced, timed and ran smoothly from start to finish. The spectators did not mind the rain. They were at last attending the ultimate concert of their favorite singer-entertainer.

Brooks has sold over 148 million albums. Only the Beatles have sold more. AMAZON furnishes his music free all day and night.

Close ups of the enthusiastic audience showed them lip syncing practically every song he sang having obviously heard each of his hits many times.

Garth Brooks is a country singer entertainer first class.  It is to be mentioned that during his fast-moving two-hour program, there was not one political dig against our president, nor any “F” words used or other curse or swear words.  Garth Brooks has too much class for that.

Brooks is such a great entertainer that he did not need to resort to such trash to get a reaction from the audience. There was plenty of reaction the moment he came on stage, he is that popular.

HOW REFRESHING! This is what show business was meant to be, family entertainment. And Brooks managed to make that humongous crowd feel they were in an intimate setting the way he worked with the crowd, acknowledging all who were there. Nobody felt invisible but indeed, part of the family…part of the action. This was an official ‘family night out.’

There were several extended runways from the platform going into the crowd. Brooks used those frequently so that every single person in that mass crowd felt recognized even those in the highest tiers of that stadium.

Brooks had that entire crowd in the palm of his hand from the very beginning, with his personality, delivery of his songs, and his playful interaction with his other musicians as well as members of the audience.  They all showed that they genuinely liked each other.

Every musician was first class. There were absolutely no lulls in the program. It went along smoothly without let-up from beginning to end.

This show could be labeled; God, Family, Country and Americana. Those in the show all dressed neatly and on purpose.Also, the audience also was a different kind of audience than found in the usual Rock concert. This audience consisted of neat people, not hippies with unwashed hair and torn jeans. Indeed not one such could be seen in this huge audience that truly reflects America.

Plus not one beer can was seen, there was no dope being used.The audience was orderly, and had a great time.

The tickets start from $140.00 with no doubt stiffer prices near the stage. Actually you pay that much to see a Broadway show these days with nothing near the quality as this Country Boy in The Stadium.

His final song was, “The Dance.” The audience went respectfully wild and gave him a long-standing ovation while he trotted out on every runway from the stage to acknowledge everyone everywhere in that stadium.

Again, this is what entertainment should be. Be sure and try to see his concert when he comes to your area. Musicians, entertainers, movie stars–

Santa’s surprising origins – -A Christmas classic feature

By Rev. Austin Miles

MYRA – (Note To Readers: This story was first published on December 20, 2001. It has been picked up and re-published all over the world every year since, becoming a Holiday Tradition. Hallmark contacted the writer and asked him to appear in the Holiday movie, Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus, playing the Mall Santa that magically receives the gift of sign language. That movie is aired every year.)

He is lovable, congenial, giving and jolly. What’s more he knows everything, as any child will readily testify. He is a colorful old man, whose visits are eagerly awaited by millions of children each year and who, for a little while, makes the world a much happier place

Is Santa Claus a good influence on children, or a bad influence whose image merely commercializes Christmas and who takes the reason out of the season, as some charge?

Where did Santa come from? It will surprise many to learn that Santa Claus (as we know him today) came out of the church itself through the charity of a very devout and caring priest. Now bear in mind that this is a true, historically documented account.

Approximately 200 years after the birth of Christ, a meeting of the elders of a little church in Myra, Turkey had just been called to order. They needed to appoint a bishop but no fitting candidate could be found. So great was the need that they decided to pray.

Out at sea, a ship battled a raging storm. The crew valiantly fought to keep it afloat. Trunks were being thrown overboard to lighten the load as frightened passengers held onto whatever they could to keep from being swept overboard while others huddled in their cabins. The ravaging waves tore some wood from the sides of the ship.

“Nicholas…NICHOLAS!” someone yelled frantically. It had been noised about that a man named Nicholas, who was known to be a man of God, was on board. Out of a cabin, in response to the call, came a man with a long white beard. Holding on to the rail of the tossing ship, he began to pray for the storm to cease. As he prayed he lifted his hands heavenward. Miraculously, the storm calmed. The crippled ship drifted into the harbor of Myra.

The elders of the little church in Myra suddenly stopped in the midst of their intense prayer, opened their eyes and looked around at each other, startled at a message from God that had come to each of them in the form of a vision; they were to appoint as their bishop, the first man named Nicholas who would, within the hour, enter the church to pray.

As the leaning ship hobbled into the port and was docked, Nicholas disembarked and made his way into the village to seek a church. He wanted to give thanks to God for His intervention during the storm that could have killed everyone on board.

Finding the church, he eagerly approached it. The heads of the elders turned toward the door as it slowly opened. The stately man with the snow-white beard entered, and, focused on the altar, made his way down to the front and knelt in a prayer of thanksgiving. As he rose to leave the elders approached him. “What is your name?” asked one. “Nicholas.” was the reply.

“God has sent you to us to be our new bishop,” said another. The group joyfully fitted the surprised Nicholas with a long red priestly robe and miter. Nicholas quickly became known as, “The Bishop of Miracles,” because of so many spectacular answers to his prayers.

Unlike most priests, Bishop Nicholas was wealthy through family inheritance. In his mind, wealth came from God and belonged to God. The very reason for his existence was to serve God. And that is how he lived his life.

Nicholas became increasingly concerned about a custom in Turkey. If little girls did not have a dowry so that they could marry, they would be sold into slavery, which included prostitution. Bishop Nicholas had given away most of his own fortune so he went about and managed to collect gold from admirers.

On December 6th, under cover of darkness, he wrapped the gold coins in several little bags and visited each home that had a daughter without a dowry, dropping a bag of gold through the windows of each, which landed on the hearth where the little girl’s clothes would be drying. When the gold was discovered the next morning, the family rejoiced. Their little daughters were saved from slavery.

Nicholas continued what was to become an annual tradition. Nobody knew the identity of the mysterious benefactor who would slip around the village on that date each year. On one such night, as Nicholas put his arm through the window to drop the bag of gold, instead of it landing on the hearth, the bag fell into a stocking that was hanging in front of the fireplace to dry. It was found the next morning, to the delight of the family. Which, by the way, is how the custom of hanging up Christmas stockings came to be.

Shortly before Nicholas’s death, which occurred on December 6th, the date of his annual visit, it was learned that he was the individual who brought so much joy to so many families.

Five hundred years later, in the 9th Century, Nicholas was canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, hence the name, Saint Nicholas. And since the celebration of Christmas came after the life of St. Nicholas, he actually preceded Christmas, as we know it today.

As the story of St. Nicholas spread, French nuns in the 12th Century began making annual night-time visits to poor families with children, leaving fruit and nuts, which these families could not afford.

The nuns made their gift-giving rounds on what became known as, “St. Nicholas Eve,” December 5th. The tradition spread throughout the Old World and across the ocean to the New. Many people to this day celebrate Christmas on December 6th.

St. Nicholas became the Patron Saint of many countries including Russia, becoming a major ingredient in the Russian Christmas celebration. England made St. Nicholas, “Father Christmas.” Germany picked up on that title, and in France he became known as “Papa Noel.”

As the various forms of Nicholas began to emerge in the secular world over the years, some unanticipated problems arose: protests which came out of…the church! Martin Luther pounded his pulpit proclaiming that the true Christmas message was being lost by the Saint Nicholas connection.

The Dutch came to the rescue and adopted what they believed to be a more religious view of Nicholas that would satisfy the critics. The Dutch-German Protestant Reform Movement brought with it the idea that the Christ child should be the standard-bearer for Christmas. The German word for Christ child, “Christkindl,” evolved to, “Kris Kringle,” yet another version and another irritant for Luther.

In 1822, on the night before Christmas, which the world began to celebrate on December 24th, Clement Moore wrote a poem about the gift-giver for his six children. That poem, “The Night Before Christmas,” was published the following year in the Sentinel of Troy, New York. Up to that time, Nicholas had taken various forms. He was portrayed with a black beard, then a white beard. He was shown dressed in everything including buckskin.

Mr. Moore defined Nicholas once and for all and renamed him, Santa Claus. He had, no doubt, been influenced by the Dutch who named him, “Sinter (Saint) Klass (short for Nicholas) and that had become, “Sinterklass.”

Others who spoke broken English, knowing that gold had been found on the hearth by the fireplace, started a new legend. The gift-giver came down the chimney and would land in the cinders of burning embers, so they called him, “Cinder Klaussen,” which would in Moore’s hands become, Santa Claus.

Clement Moore’s poem made Santa famous. He even named the reindeer. Not only did he name them, he made them fly. He might have taken that idea from the poet, Washington Irving, who wrote a book in 1809 about a Dutch Colonist’s dream in which St. Nick came riding over the tops of trees in a wagon wherein he brings yearly presents to the children.

An artist named Thomas Nast, who was a Harper’s Weekly cartoonist, began to show what Santa looked like. He dressed him in red, which had been the official color of the priestly robes worn by St. Nicholas and went further by making Santa plump and jolly.

To show how much of a church connection to Santa there is, Clement Moore’s father was the Episcopal Bishop of New York, and, Clement Moore himself was Professor of Theology at Union Theological Seminary.

In 1897, a little girl named, Virginia Hanlon, had been told that there really was no Santa Claus. She was so disturbed about it that she wrote a letter to the editor of The New York Sun, whose name, by the way, was Francis P. Church…can’t get away from that connection. He responded with a story titled, “Yes Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus.” And the world breathed a sigh of relief.

It is interesting to note that the clearest image of Santa came not from the church, or from a poet, but by, of all things, a soft drink company advertisement! That drawing, known as ‘the Coca Cola Santa,’ created and drawn by Haddon Sundblom, made him totally definable. And the elves? Well, they were first seen in Ireland as Leprechauns.

St. Nicholas has been replaced by the created, Santa, who does indeed delight millions of children. But maybe through the hustle and bustle we have lost the very core of what Christmas is and should be; a time of love and sharing with people in need (whether we know them or not), rather than an orgy of gift giving, receiving, and thinking of one’s personal wants. I would like to see the original idea of giving and charity, as set forth by the real St. Nick, with nothing expected in return, brought back.

As for the commercialization of Christmas, there still is a bright side. It is the one time in the year where we can hear songs proclaiming the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, with others heralding the birth of The Holy Child, Jesus Christ our Savior coming through the loud speakers of the malls and shopping centers of the secular world (even though that is changing as the secular world is trying to strip all mention of Jesus Christ out of Christmas).

Homes are still decorated with lights to proclaim Him. And people are a little nicer to one another at least once a year. So maybe this commercialized version is better than having no celebration at all.

Extra Note: Since the first publication of this story, a Christmas war has been declared with the goal of making the word Christmas illegal. They are even trying to abolish Santa.

Check the link below regarding the Christmas wars with a brief personal message from Santa that will help put it all in perspective.

New Animal Book Answers THE Question

by Rev. Austin Miles

Many have agonized over the loss of a beloved pet. “Is this it?” Is this all there is?” Is my dear pet gone forever?”  “Why?” This can be a heart wrenching emotional struggle for those unsure. Reading about The Rainbow Bridge creates a faint hope that we will see our pets again, but it is just that….a hope.

But seeing our pets again goes further than hope. Indeed, this new release PROVES–with Scripture–that we WILL see our pets again.  

God and Animals answers many questions including the perplexing one; Which came first?  The chicken or the egg? We also have the answer to the age old question, ‘Why DID the chicken cross the road?’  This one is not in the book but those who contact the author will be given the answer.

This author’s love of animals began at a very early age when a pet chicken named Nell was a part of the family. During my younger years, I worked as a Circus Ringmaster, becoming friends with all creatures, from the smallest (baby tigers) to the largest, Big Tommy, the legendary elephant who became a hero when he prevented a circus catastrophe that would have killed many.

There is a poignant chapter on “The Old Dog Who Tried to Run Away With the Circus.” “The Parrot who solved a murder mystery,”  “A Little Girl and her Fish”, “The Extraordinary Devoted Mother Chimp,” “What the Church didn’t teach me I Learned From my Poodle,”  and, “How animals respond to prayer.” Yes they do in an astonishing way. Examples are detailed.

One thing this author has learned, is that every creature has a distinct personality, making them all a fascinating part of humanity-yes–humanity. One will never see any animal the same way after reading this delightful work.

The book cover includes a beautiful painting by Bob Boyd showing Jesus hugging a big dog. To see that painting on the book cover, click this link:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/179099344X

Writing is natural to me, starting while in grade school. The author studied Journalism at Los Medanos College in Pittsburg, California, receiving awards, and started a website, www.revaustinmiles.com, which now has over seven and a half million readers as well as being a feature writer for Renew America, Capitol Hill Outsider, News With Views, Olive Branch Report, and various other major news sites.

This writer earned a B.A. in Philosophy and Theology from Trinity Theological Seminary. After ordination, was appointed Chaplain to Show Business, dealing with movie stars, Broadway Actors, circus performers and musicians.

Being a strong advocate for animal welfare means working with representatives in Washington, D.C. to make poaching illegal as well as the import and export of Ivory. That bill was crafted, presented to congress and passed. Also working to abolish “Kill Shelters” and making them all animal rescue and adoption centers.

This writer is also “Papa” to a beautiful chocolate Lab named, Mollie.


Healing Wounded Warrior Project

By Jim O’Neill

In a period of little more than two days in January 2016, the outlook and public impression of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), one of the nation’s most venerable charities, was transformed from substantially positive to substantially negative. During those two days – January 26 and 27, 2016 – CBS News and The New York Times aired and published reports that heavily criticized the way WWP conducted itself.  …CBS News and The New York Times did the public no favors with [their] inadequate and unnecessarily damaging journalism.

Doug White “The First Casualty: A Report Addressing the Allegations Made Against the Wounded Warrior Project

“Great Job, Poor Optics” would be a good descriptive title for an article on the fall from grace of the veteran’s charity “Wounded Warrior Project” (WWP).  By which I mean that WWP as run by its former Chief Executive Officer Steve Nardizzi and Chief Operations Officer Al Giordano, was wonderfully successful at helping many vets, but Nardizzi’s management style, while undeniably successful, left WWP open to charges of playing fast and loose with donor’s money.

As charity specialist Doug White puts it: “While Nardizzi led WWP as a modern, national charity, he overlooked a crucial, if cosmetic, aspect of any modern-day organization: how things look have a bearing on how things are.”

Which is to say that it behooves a charity organization to look like a charity organization, and not a glamorous and financially flush NGO.  The thing is, under Nardizzi and Giordano’s leadership WWP was flush with funds, and if it was not a glamorous NGO, it was certainly one of the country’s most recognizable and successful charity brands.  And then came tag-team exposes by the “The New York Times” and “CBS News” in early 2016.

As a result of the two exposes WWP’s board at the time put out a report denying any wrongdoing on the part of WWP – and then cut their own throat by firing Nardizzi and Giordano (if WWP was innocent of any wrongdoing why fire their CEO and COO?).  If was after the firing of Nardizzi and Giordano that the real damage to WWP occurred, and contributions plummeted.

Firing Nardizzi and Giordano was a huge mistake IMO.  By all accounts they did an excellent job of running WWP, and the charity is still suffering from their loss.  As White puts it: “The tenor of the post-allegation and post-firing news reports smack of how things under Nardizzi and Giordano went terribly wrong, how it’s time to clean things up and become more efficient, and how to make WWP the charity it is supposed to be.”  White continues:

A nice narrative if you can get away with it. The problem is that it’s untrue and, worse, cowardly. …The problem wasn’t the senior management…but the stature of two venerable news organizations that developed reports that were essentially incorrect and based on biased and incomplete perspectives of former WWP employees, many of whom had been fired, who took it upon themselves to blow a whistle that, in the end, was far more the screech of uninformed whining than a signal of any merit.

I will be the first to say that I am no expert on running charities, but Doug White is.  In White’s opinion “it’s difficult to deconstruct things to put order to the reason, to explain why one of America’s most venerated and well-run charities, along with the authors of its success, have been so vilified without reason.”  If you really want to get into the meat of the injustice done to Nardizzi, Giordano, and WWP as a whole then you can do no better than reading White’s report “Addressing the Allegations Made Against the Wounded Warrior Project

[White] is the former director of Columbia University’s Master of Science in Fundraising Management program, where, in addition to his extensive management responsibilities, he taught board governance, ethics and fundraising. He is also the former academic director of New York University’s Heyman Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising. He has also been an advisor to BoardSource, the nation’s leading organization dedicated to “building exceptional nonprofit boards and inspiring board service.”

Doug White website

My purpose in writing this article is twofold: Most importantly I wish to help dissolve the injurious fog of doubt and skepticism that has surrounded WWP since it came under fire in 2016.  It is, and always has been, an admirable organization dedicated to helping America’s wounded heroes.  Also, I would like to help undo some of the unjustified damage done to the reputations of Steve Nardizzi and Al Giordano.

Let me close with a helpful hint to “The New York Times” and “CBS News.”  If they wish to investigate some real, honest-to-goodness bona fide criminal charity activity then let me suggest looking into the “Clinton Foundation.”  No need to thank me, it’s what I do. 🙂

Overall, I consider the Clinton Foundation to be a charity fraud network. I base this conclusion on my review of extensive data about its operations including the activities of the Clinton family and their friends in Haiti, a nation that has suffered many disasters, both natural and man-made.

What possesses powerful, wealthy, and educated persons to prey on the most desperately poor humans on earth as they posture as “philanthropists”?  And why has there been no government oversight?

I Am Yellow Vest!

By Jim O’Neill

A grassroots movement made up of citizens who have become fed up with the political establishment in France has been growing since early November and it has come to a head this month. The movement, known as “gilets jaunes” or “yellow vests” began as an anti-tax protest but has since merged folks from the left and the right into a much broader anti-government movement. The movement has become so large that political experts are now calling it a “new revolution.”  [Italics added]

Matt Agorist “‘Yellow Vest’ Protests Spreading Globally as Citizens Rise Up Against Corrupt Governments”

The yellow vest (gilets jaunes) movement in France has grown from a protest against increased gas taxes to a broad coalition of anti-government demonstrators drawing from both sides of the political spectrum.  It is truly a grassroots populist movement, with no individual leader or organization directing it – think Tea Party fused with Bernie supporters.

Les Gilets Jaunes, the yellow vests, is a movement of the people, but it is worth noting that elements within the French military are none too happy as well.  Recently French General Antoine Martinez penned a letter to French President Macron warning him that he was treading dangerously close to treason.  The letter was signed by an additional 11 French generals, a former Minister of Defense, and an admiral.  Hmm…coup d’etat, that’s French right?

In any event, as Erik Rush points out, the movement has grown increasingly ugly.  Violent affrontements (clashes) between the police and protesters have increased both in number and severity.

While the demonstrations in France started out reasonably peacefully, they have become increasingly violent over time, with current damage estimates at around $1 billion. French police have employed tear gas and water cannons against demonstrators, and well over 1,000 of them have been taken into custody. Several deaths have been reported….

Erik RushRiots in France: Coming to America next?

 Rush ponders in his article’s title if the yellow vest riots will be coming to America next.  To which I say “Absolument mon frere!”  It is only a question of time.  And that brings me to the main point(s) of this article.

America is currently in Civil War II – it is still largely a cold civil war at this point, but it could morph into a hot and bloody civil war on any given day.  I hear and read patriots who opine that it took a long time to get to where we are today, and it will take an equally long time to work our way out of it.  I strongly disagree.

We the People do not have the time; we are out of time; time has run out.  Trust me, if you think things are ugly now, you ain’t seen nothing yet.  Things are only going to get worse, count on it.  When Mark Levin asked journalist Heather MacDonald where she saw America in a few years she told him either in a civil war or backing away from one.  Levin then asked her “You mean a physical civil war?”  She replied “I absolutely do.”

We’ve seen civil violence grow — people, with impunity, with the celebration and encouragement of politicians, beating each other up…Antifa harassing Tucker Carlson, harassing politicians or shooting them. Again, the universities are teaching students to hate on the basis of race and gender. Unless we counter that narrative, which originates in the view that America is oppressive. Unless we fight that narrative of endemic racism, we are in civil war.” 

Fox News “Heather MacDonald warns US colleges are breeding hate

I agree with MacDonald, except for the timeline.  As I say, we are in a civil war right now.  The only question is if/when it will go explosively physical.  Time is not on our side folks.  As older generations who were raised on patriotism, personal responsibility, and Judeo/Christian values die off, they are being replaced by indoctrinated sheeple who have been largely spoon-fed globalism, climate change, identity politics, multiculturalism, socialism, relativism, anti-capitalism, and anti-American pap since kindergarten.

A recent poll showed that 53 percent of American teens and twenty-something’s do not respect America.  At sporting events, millions of students fail to stand for the national anthem.  In southern California, you see more Mexican flags being displayed and flown rather than the Stars and Stripes.  In Detroit, Michigan, you see the Islamic black flag with Arabic writing that Americans cannot decipher.

Frosty Woolridge “Hating Your Own Country: Teaching U.S. Kids to Loathe America

Look at the support that socialist/communist Bernie Sanders got and gets.  Look at the support socialist Andrew Gillum had running for governor in Florida, or “Beto” O’Rourke had running for senator in Texas.  Many of their supporters are fanatical, and they are only going to grow in numbers as our “educational” indoctrination centers churn out more and more dumbed down zealots who are sure that capitalism sucks and socialism is the best thing since sliced humus.

The left, at least the thoroughly brainwashed ones, have gone rabid and are off the chain.  There is no reasoning with them, no debating them, no relating to them.  And their numbers grow exponentially, fed on a constant stream of anti-Trump (read that as anti-America, anti-you) media propaganda.  I’ll say it again, it’s not going to get better, it’s going to get worse.  Either We the People put the brakes on things NOW, or we’re toast.  Just what do I mean by “putting on the brakes?”  Glad you asked.

First let me outline what’s at stake here.  If we continue down the road we are on we will soon be living in a world of brutal tyranny.  Call it globalism, call it communism, call it fascism, call it any d—n thing you want, it will be a tyrannical form of global governance run by an elite class of potentate wannabes and their toadies.  And it will be brutal.  It may not start out that way, but eventually as people resist the evermore burdensome weight of uncontrolled government demands, the rulers will use force and more force to ensure compliance to their Draconian edicts (“Anyone need a gilets jaune, anyone?”).  And you thought it would be utopia?  Grow up.  The only ones living in any semblance of utopia will be the ruling elites.

Well, they perhaps might live in some semblance of utopia were not for the fact that tyrannies traditionally do not end well, what with all the revolutions, bloodshed and such.  All of which I would very much like to spare America from experiencing.  Which brings me once again to putting on the brakes, NOW.

We the People are quickly drifting toward the point of no return…some would say we are already past that point.  I think that there is still hope for America to rise again as a free and democratic republic, but action needs to be taken, and soon.

Seeing we have our own self-proclaimed “messenger” in the White House, how about we ask him to deliver a message for us?  Not a message in words, but in actions.

I’m your messenger. The message is simple. We’re gonna take our country back.

President Donald J. Trump

We want to see some arrests, lots of arrests.  And we don’t mean small fry, we mean big time movers and shakers – arrest them!  Too big to fail or fall my butt.  Enough of this two-tiered “justice” system bulls—t.  Find the them guilty and jail them for crying out loud.  H—l, some of them deserve to be taken out and shot.  Seriously.

Take away FCC operating licenses and shut down the globalist/government propaganda machine.  Have the military run the TV stations if necessary.  Build the f—king wall and clamp down hard on sanctuary cities/states – all of which are illegal in any case.  Sweep out all the leftist c—p from our schools and start teaching American civics and true American history again – warts and all is fine, but the heavily slanted myopic anti-American propaganda has got to go.  The “Pledge of Allegiance” and “one nation under God” need to be taught and practiced in our schools again.

I’m just getting started, but you get the idea.  Yes, there will be hell to pay, but it will be over in a relatively short time and the damage to America will be minimized.  But, unless radical preemptive proactive actions are taken soon, there will be hell to pay in any event, and it won’t be over any time soon — and the damage to America will be catastrophic.  You hear me?  Radical.  Preemptive.  Proactive.  Actions.

Words, words, words, and putting up with more Uni-party crapola from Congress won’t cut it any more.  And God spare me from the Democrat’s insane anti-Trump hysteria once they get the House.  Unless radical, preemptive, proactive actions are taken soon by President Trump…then I guess it will be left up to We the People to take action.

I’ve been practicing my French – “Jes suis gilets jaunes!” (“I am yellow vest!”).  Pronounce it (approximately) “Jah swee jillay june” with a raised clenched fist and your message should get across to other Gilets Jaunes.  No joke.

BREAKING! Muslims to Mob Border to Assist Immigrants!!

by Rev. Austin Miles

SAN DIEGO-The Counsel on American-Islamic Relations—“CAIR”–an activist organization to strengthen Muslims in their goals to bring Sharia Law to America (in other words, to take over our country), has announced in their newsletter a call for Muslims to gather at the San Diego-Mexican border On Monday, December 10th, 2018.to assist illegal immigrants in their quest to storm into America . That’s the day after tomorrow.  HEADS UP!

Interesting that this notice for action was released yesterday, December 7th, the anniversary of the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese which plunged America into World War 2.

Meanwhile, the thousands of Muslims in the U.S. have set up 22 training camps on American soil where no American can enter. This is nuts!

The full newsletter is below, but here is the call and announcement as printed in their news letter: Note the “Moral Call for Migrant Justice.”

    CAIR said Nauert promoted Islamophobic smears while employed as a Fox News anchor.

    In 2013, she criticized special swim classes for a group of Somali-American girls, describing the classes as the “minority becoming the majority at one community pool. Sharia law is now changing everything.”

    In a 2009 Fox special on “stealth jihad,” she interviewed Islamophobic panelists, including notorious Islamophobes like Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney and Nonie Darwish, who claims that “Islam should be feared, and should be fought, and should be conquered, and defeated, and annihilated.” Nauert has also defended Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric.

    Nauert previously bashed refugee students in Pennsylvania for wanting “an even better” public education and falsely claimed that child migrants from Central America were “an illegal health risk.”

    Other than her current position as State Department spokesperson, Nauert has no apparent diplomatic or government experience or expertise.

    “Heather Nauert does not represent our nation’s diversity or its commitment to treating all Americans with equality and respect,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

    “Such an important post should not be occupied by someone who is clearly unqualified and Islamophobic,” said CAIR Government Affairs Director Robert McCaw. “There are many other individuals who do have the knowledge and background necessary for this post. Ms. Nauert’s nomination should be withdrawn.”

Which Countries Allow “Birthright” Citizenship?

by Rev. Austin Miles

Birthright Citizenship means that whatever country a baby is born in, makes it a citizen of that country. This subject has been in the news constantly since the Caravans, including thousands of illegal immigrants, began pushing its way from lower Latin countries to the U.S.

Pregnant women, mostly unmarried, want to make it to this country before the baby is born so they can enjoy citizenship privileges, by the baby instantly becoming a citizen which includes all the perks; Welfare, Food Stamps, Full Education. Housing along with other privileges including cell phones, are given to the parent(s) as well as the newborns.

This has become so outrageous, that several years ago a Social Worker told me that they now give out Broadway Theater tickets to those on welfare.  What? The welfare people have their pick of theater they would like to see while the working stiffs who pay taxes cannot afford to go. This is nuts!

“Well,” she said, “the welfare people should not be deprived of going to the theater just because they are poor with no money to buy tickets!”  Well that makes sense doncha know.

Broadway tickets have always been much higher than any other performance event. Today those tickets START at $150.00 in the way up nose-bleed balcony, with prices going up on the main floor starting at $300.00 to $1000. We understand there are $1500 dollar seats.

Yep, welfare families who will not work can attend the luxury of theater, but those who work for a living are turned away since they cannot afford the tickets. Is it just me, or is there something twisted and wrong with this system?

So how many countries offer Birthright Citizenship to newborn babies of tourists and illegal aliens?

DRUM ROLL!!

Only one! The United States of America!

That’s right, ONLY ONE.   Every other modern developed nation in the world has gotten rid of birthright citizenship policies.   Yet, most U.S. News media and politicians the last several weeks have ridiculed the comments by some other politicians that it is time for the U.S. to put an end to birthright citizenship for tourists and ‘illegal aliens.’

NO OTHER COUNTRIES (ZERO-NONE-ZILCH) gives birth citizenship; The U.S. ‘Stands alone.’ There used to be all kinds of developed countries that gave away their citizenship as freely as we do in the U.S.   But one by one they all have recognized the folly, recklessness, lunacy, stupidity of that policy.

SOME OF THE MODERN COUNTRIES THAT RECENTLY ENDED THEIR BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP POLICY:  Canada was the last non-U.S. holdout. Illegal aliens stopped getting citizenship for their newborn babies in 2009.

Australia’s birthright citizenship requirements are much more stringent than those of H.R. 1868 and took effect in 2007.

–  New Zealand repealed in 2006.
–  Ireland repealed in 2005.

The United States is the ‘laughing stock’ of the modern world.    Only the U.S. Values its citizenship ‘so lowly’ as to distribute it promiscuously to the off-spring of foreign citizens visiting Disney World on tourist visas and to foreign citizens who have violated their
promises on their visitor, work and student visas, who stay illegally in the country,  as well as to those who sneak across our borders.

It’s not just Mexico and South America who are sending illegals across our borders.    Currently, the CBP (Customs Border Protection) reports that of those apprehended illegally crossing the border, China is number one.

Wake up America!   END BIRTHRIGHT FOR TOURIST, FOREIGN CITIZENS AND ESPECIALLY ‘ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.’    Illegal aliens from China, India, Russia, the Middle East, and a host of other nations are flooding the United States. Ironically, most often these ‘illegals’ and/or their offspring are given positions at the front of the line for Government jobs, contracts and assistance.

Look around you!  We are giving away our culture, and economic and fiscal strength because our borders are not secure and we bestow citizenship irresponsibly.

George Soros and the Communist Party has stirred up this entire illegal mess in an effort to drain the strength of America, making it weaker while positioning it for Communist take-over which has been their goal all along. We must not let that happen.

MilesTones-Way Back When People Were Polite

by Rev. Austin Miles

We have been through the Bronze Age, the Age of Faith, the Age of Reason, the Age of Enlightenment, the Age of Louis X1V,  and the Age of Voltaire.

Even with the subjects at hand for discussion, back then there was a dignity of the people and all talk was polite, even in disagreements.  Of course this was before the Age of Democrats. From there all respect for others went down the….swamp (more elegant than using toilet).

Today, all conversations seem to be powered by crudeness, insults,and disparagement bound up in the covers of vulgarity.  Today there seems to be an effort to belittle others.

Fortunately this writer lived in the days of respect where all conversations reflected that time in life. I can remember when we were visiting family members in Kentucky, one of the young men in the family brought his new girl friend to visit and get acquainted with us.

All went well until a bee buzzed that girl friend’s face, she jumped up and swatting at the bee, yelled…..“DAAAAAAMN!  We all gasped, shook our heads and thought loudly that this was NOT the girl for him. That was considered a curse word back then. And a girl using such language was unthinkable.

Going to school, when the teacher entered the room, all the young men automatically took of their hats and caps. We never called a teacher by a first name without putting a Miss or Mr. in front of that name.

As time went by the insult radio host came into being. Joe Pine was one of the first who insulted his guests. People were shocked at his first broadcast, but they kept tuning in. More hosts gained a microphone with the same format. When television became a staple, one would not only hear the insults but see the expressions on the faces.

Then the insult comedian came forward (night clubs, Vegas, theaters) and stupid people would pay money to be insulted. It was considered chic.

The crudeness and rudeness spilled over into society. And when someone insulted another, it carried with it a real sting, not the non-sting that brought out the loud, “DAMN” from the girlfriend who was never invited back, but a real painful sting.

But back in my youthful days, insults were actually funny, made their point but were never rude or cruel. Wanting to gather those classy insults I consulted a retired pastor friend who helped greatly in putting these together. Here they are.

When Insults Had Class

These glorious insults are from an era before the English language got boiled down to 4-letter words.

�  A member of Parliament to Disraeli: “Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of some unspeakable disease.”

�  “That depends, Sir,” said Disraeli, “whether I embrace your policies or your       mistress.”

�  “Thank you for sending me a copy of your book; I’ll waste no time reading it.”          Moses Hadas

�  “I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.    –           Mark Twain

�  “He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends..” – Oscar Wilde

�  “In order to avoid being called a flirt, she always yielded easily.” –
Charles, Count Talleyrand

�  “He loves nature in spite of what it did to him.” – Forrest Tucker

�  “Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?” –       Mark Twain

�  “His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork.” – Mae West

�  “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.” –
Oscar Wilde

�  “He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts… for support rather       than illumination.” – Andrew Lang (1844-1912)

�  “He has Van Gogh’s ear for music.” – Billy Wilder

�  “I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening.  But this wasn’t it.” – Groucho Marx

Yes, I do miss the old days. They were classier.


Macy’s Lesbian Kiss Inflames Viewers

by Rev. Austin Miles

DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING: Macy’s Department Stores are now a showcase for perversion and disease. They sickly promoted homosexual acts as seen in the Thanksgiving Parade yesterday. It spotlighted an interracial lesbian couple’s deep throat kiss seen around the world. Remember, this parade is supposed to attract children and their families.

This was well planned since the TV cameras spent time showing that scene even though there was a full cast of the Broadway show, “The Prom,” that filled the street in front of the flagship store in New York City. So this camera shot was PLANNED well in advance to exhibit the ‘joys’ of lesbianism.

Yes, that TV camera had been scripted to feature the Lesbian couple. And why not? California schools, have now formed LGBTQ classes to teach about alternative sex, and part of the curriculum requires the viewing of homosexual porn films…yes in the classroom…as part of the Communist inspired government plans for the future of America. This is the Deep State we are hearing about.

So how do these tactics help the Communist Cause? The Reds know that perversion and pornography works to WEAKEN the nations where it exists.

When this writer spent time behind the Iron Curtain in earlier days, I was told that the Playboy Magazine was banned from all Communist countries because, specifically, by making pornography available, men are weakened to the extent that they would be useless as an enforcer for the Party or as an opponent.

Then I was told how the Communist government would see Playboy Magazine distributed throughout the United States, with heavy promotion, for that very reason. This is why the push for everything immoral upon all citizens is important to enemies

This is also why Communist leaders want no religion, churches, or Christians in general. So how do you think so many church people have been introduced and ensnared into pornography? It was not an accident. But it has weakened the church which was the goal.

Today there is porn available in hotel and motel rooms, gay pride parades that literally take over a city for that event with government officials many times as a parade chairman or riding a float to show ‘solidarity.’ They get by with such public filth due to the so-called, Main Stream Media that anoints the “Pride Parades”, as social advancement.

Remember too that Playboy Magazine instigated the publication of numerous other porn publications going in all sexual directions which could and can be seen on display everywhere.

It has become such an important issue that parents today can no longer ask to see the material and books their children will study in schools. Schools are in existence today to groom kids into perversion.

Transgender freaks in dresses and full garish make-up now have story hours in the public libraries, where they read gender-bending stories to children.

As for Macy’s, do not patronize them. There are many other stores that handle similar merchandise. Many chain stores are closing. You know what happened to Sears. And Macy’s has already closed many of their stores due to shrinking business.

Let’s see that they close ALL of them. Don’t patronize them or watch their televised parade.  Macy’s sell overpriced items, plus have an annual world-wide television program that absolutely promotes deviancy.

Forget the big balloons. You can see fabulous floats at the Rose Bowl Parade. Do not surrender your mind or your money to Macy’s garbage. Obviously Macy’s is a Democrat run company.

To think that Macy’s, knowing this parade symbolized the coming of Christmas, a very holy day of the year for Christians, which proclaims the birth of Jesus, would give their middle finger to God by exhibiting the very thing that is an abomination to God, to smear the meaning of that day before millions of viewers. It’s time to say goodbye to Macy’s and their televised parade.

Kavanaugh’s Accuser Worse than Thought

by Rev. Austin Miles

Who can forget Christine Blasey Ford, the dim-witted blonde with the mature face and little girl voice who blatantly accused Supreme Court Candidate Brett Kavanaugh of the unthinkable? It was an orchestrated effort to torpedo his appointment to the High Court.  First of all, she is a Democrat who wants to sabotage anything Republican.

Question: So what was the motive behind her desperate attempt to keep Judge Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court?

Answer: She knew he would overturn Roe v Wade. Yes, Ford lied to protect Roe v Wade.

Why was it so important to her?

“Corcept Therapeutics (Corcept.com) manufacturers and markets an abortion pill drug called mifepristone, and Christine Blasey Ford is a co-author of at least eight published scientific papers produced by the pharmaceutical giant to promote its pills. You can see Blasey’s name listed on several publications at this Corcept.com web page detailing their research papers.”

You ask why Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford would do this? Here are 4 reasons:

1) She owns a major portion of the company that makes the morning after abortion pill and she is afraid Kavanaugh will overturn Roe v Wade, therefore making her million dollar empire go caput.

2) She’s a professor at the same college (Palo Alto U) where Diane Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, is on the board of directors. She has worked with Blum on the “resist Trump” movement for two years.  

3) Dr. Blasey-Ford’s brother,  Tom Blasey, is business partners with Peter Strzok’s cousin Jill Strzok for a company called Exelis Inc. Enough said there.

4) Feinstein and Chuck Schumer appointed lawyers to set up three GoFundMe pages for her the week BEFORE she testified, which are currently up to over a million dollars for her to keep as payment for her testimony. 

No doubt more info will be coming as this writer has a “Secret Source.” Don’t believe for one minute this “professor” came out of nowhere.

Now the real issue concerning Professor Ford. Not only has she hurt a very good man and his family, but in doing so she committed a serious sin in the eyes of God who commands us not to bear false witness against anyone. And she received over a million dollars to do so making it doubly offensive to God.

She may think now that she was clever but ahead she will face God and the horror of the “White Throne”Judgment just before the trapdoor opens and she is plunged into the pits of hell and remain there forever.

False witness causes loss of reputation, divorce, job loss, harassment, harm by others, destruction of families, tearing down of relationships, humiliation and in general puts the victim in what seems to be, hell–where she is now headed.

This is not preaching…..this is a reality. And that million bucks will do her no good there.

Direct appeal to Ms. Ford: Please spend some time alone and think. Think about God, He is real. Talk to a pastor, let him tell you about Jesus. Accept Jesus as your Savior after confessing your sin and asking forgiveness for that sin. He will forgive you. Also confess your sin to the entire Kavanaugh family and ask their forgiveness. We can almost guarantee that they will forgive you.

You cannot keep that ill-gained million dollars. You must give that to the poor, like a homeless shelter or to homeless veterans’ housing. THEN you can attain salvation, forgiveness, start all over, and you can be assured that as you do, a peace will cover your face, making you an attractive woman. Again, Please Ms. Ford…..T H I N K.  And Christians, pray for her that she will come to Christ.

READERS, please redistribute this story widely so it will eventually come to her attention.

Does Music Sooth the Savage Beast?

by Rev. Austin Miles

Now this is not about Democrats. This is about four legged beasts, even though this writer would not call an elephant a beast. An elephant is a very social animal, that is family oriented, fiercely protects its young and remembers every kindness shown.

They say an elephant never forgets even though they really don’t have a lot to remember. But if one helps an elephant in trouble in any way, or any of its family, that elephant will remember that kindness for the rest of its life.

Even the biggest of elephants display emotion and can be soft-hearted. Such was an elephant several years ago named Tarra, who lived in an elephant sanctuary in Tennessee.

A little dog named Bella came to live at the sanctuary. She and Tarra became friends, then the best of friends. They would walk together, play together, and simply spend time together in a favorite spot within the large compound.

When Bella had to have surgery on her back, she was confined in the veterinarian room on the second floor of a building within the sanctuary.

While going through the surgery and recovering, Tarra stayed next to the building, looking up at the second floor, and refused to move.  For three days Tarra stood vigil.

Finally when Bella was better, the veterinarian carried her out on the balcony of the second floor so that Tarra could see her. Eventually, Bella recovered completely and was able to go back outside with Tarra which made them both very happy.

Then, their eight year friendship was tragically ended when Bella was killed by what was believed to be a coyote. Tarra found her, gave a mournful trumpet yell, tenderly picked up her little friend’s blood body and carried it over a mile to the spot where she and Bella had spent so much happy time together, then laid her down gently, as she stood beside Bella’s body trumpeting in grief.

In a film clip of Tarra during that sad moment, one could spot a big tear from the elephant’s eye running down her cheek.

Elephants are magnificent creatures, yet there are those insane knuckle heads who are born thieves, with money as their god, who hunt down innocent elephants to disable them and saw off their tusks which they sell to dealers who make art objects out of them that are sold at a big price.

Fortunately there are human beings who establish elephant sanctuaries for pachyderms  who have been mistreated.

At one such sanctuary, a classical pianist visited, and asked the director if he could bring his piano into the sanctuary so that he could play for the elephants. The director said, “fine.”  The man left, came back with a piano in his truck, unloaded it, set it up in a new section of the sanctuary where two blind elephants lived.

The piano was unloaded and moved into the closed sanctuary, sat down and began to play classical music, such as Clair De Lune. The moment he started to play, the two elephants completely relaxed and began slowly to dance, swaying their heads back and forth in time to the music.

As a special bonus to our readers, below is the link to in-depth story and the concert for elephants.
