Now you know which party is most compatible with your overall view, without regard to personalities and candidates. (In a few cases, one may dispute the positions above of various parties. We base these answers on actual policy and voting records in Congress and the White House, instead of the meaningless platforms which state positions they do not believe.)

Seven Principles of the Constitution Party are:

  1. Life: For all human beings, from conception to natural death;
  2. Liberty: Freedom of conscience and actions for the self-governed individual;
  3. Family: One husband and one wife with their children as divinely instituted;
  4. Property: Each individual’s right to own and steward personal property without government burden;
  5. Constitution: and Bill of Rights interpreted according to the actual intent of the Founding Fathers;
  6. States’ Rights: Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people;
  7. American Sovereignty: American government committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, and not entangled in foreign alliances.

The Mind of Israel

Darrell Castle discusses Israel’s security from its founding until now, especially in light of President Obama’s Iranian Agreement.

MOLON LABE, Mr. Obama

In his speech following the recent Oregon shootings, Barack Obama hinted that he favors gun confiscation in the United States and that he would like to see America follow the examples of Australia and Great Britain.

Breitbart.com reports, “When President Obama spoke in reaction to the heinous October 1 attack on Umpqua Community College, he went beyond his usual calls for more gun control and suggested instead that America consider following the path blazed by Australia and Great Britain.

“In the mid-1990s Australia and Great Britain both instituted what were virtually complete bans on firearm possession.

“Obama referenced the bans thus:

“‘We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours–Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.'”

See the report here: Obama Goes Beyond Mere Gun Control, Hints At Confiscation

And just a few days ago, Breitbart also reported, “The White House confirmed that President Obama was preparing a series of executive actions on gun control.”

So, will this “Gun-Grabber-In-Chief” attempt to confiscate the arms of the American people via Executive Order? If he did, I doubt that the American people would get much assistance from the pantywaist Republican Congress. But I know I am speaking for tens of millions of us when I say that we red-blooded Americans will NEVER surrender our arms. NEVER! This is NOT Australia or Great Britain.

If Obama wants to fire another “shot heard ’round the world,” he will follow the example of the British Crown, who, on April 19, 1775, issued an order to seize the arms of the colonists. Our patriot forebears stood on Lexington Green and at Concord Bridge on that eventful morning and, in essence, said the same thing that Spartan King Leonidas said to Persian King Xerxes at the Battle of Thermopylae. When told to surrender their arms, they said: MOLON LABE, meaning, “Come and take them.”

A pantywaist, yellow-bellied, chicken-livered Republican Congress notwithstanding, the blood of our Colonial Patriots still flows hot in the veins of millions of us, and should this president (or any president) attempt to confiscate our arms, the answer is still the same: MOLON LABE, Mr. Obama.

Think of the hypocrisy of this administration. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, the U.S. government is the biggest exporter of arms and munitions in the entire world. (Look it up for yourself.) This government supplies some of the most powerful and sophisticated weaponry to just about any two-bit dictator or thug regime on the planet. It even supplies arms and munitions to the Islamic terrorist groups Al Qaeda, ISIS, and Al Nusra.

See this report: Propaganda War On Russia In High Gear

And this one: Obama Accuses Russia Of Going After America’s “Good Guy Terrorists”

Yet Obama seems intent on eviscerating the means of self-defense from the citizens of the United States. He wants us to be disarmed. Of course, Obama is the most protected man in the world. He has more guns protecting him than any other single individual on the planet. And he will have armed Secret Service protection for the rest of his life. So, it’s okay for guns to protect HIM, but not US.

I say again: MOLON LABE, Mr. Obama.

Professor John Lott’s exhaustive research has proven beyond all doubt to ANYONE who has a rational and honest mind that MORE GUNS EQUALS LESS CRIME. And, remember, Mr. Lott began his research with an anti-gun bias–but his research convinced him otherwise. Today, he is a staunch defender of the right to keep and bear arms. The empirical data is unassailable: the absence of guns INCREASES crime, while the presence of guns, DECREASES crime.

See John Lott’s website here: John Lott’s Website

The problem is not guns; the problem is gun-free zones.

Plus, it appears that the Oregon college in which the recent shootings took place had gone against Oregon State law–which allows for students with CCW permits to carry on campus. But UCC had a school policy FORBIDDING firearms on campus. If one wants to start placing blame beyond the actual shooter, look no further than the administration of UCC that forbade its students from defending themselves. The blood of the innocent victims in that tragedy is at least partially on the hands of that college administration.

Furthermore, for at least a half-century now, America’s schools and colleges have taught that man is nothing more than an evolved ape. Our children are taught that there are no moral absolutes. Christian morality has been all but expelled from America’s public educational institutions. So, why should we be surprised when our young people start behaving like amoral animals?

Beyond that, look at how many of these young shooters are the products of fatherless homes.

See this report: Guess Which Mass Murderers Came From A Fatherless Home

And, again, look at how so many of our churches are nothing more than glorified social clubs or entertainment centers. Not only is Christian morality not being taught in our schools, it’s not even being taught in many of our homes and churches.

We are not dealing with a gun issue; we are dealing with a heart issue. And government is completely incapable of dealing with heart issues. Men have been killing their fellow man since Cain killed Abel–and they haven’t needed guns to do it. But since people with evil hearts now use guns to kill, it is obligatory that people with pure hearts have guns in their possession to be able to defend themselves from people with evil hearts.

And dare I even mention the possibility that at least some of these killers could be “Manchurian Candidates”? Oh, I know, that is paranoid conspiracy talk. Our government would NEVER do such a thing, right?

I guess we are supposed to forget the fact that our government did indeed spend $10 million (roughly $87.5 million adjusted for inflation) recruiting former Nazi scientists to perform behavior-modification experiments on American citizens (prisoners, hospital patients, military personnel, etc.) in a project called “Operation Paperclip” (also known as MKUltra).

In these “experiments,” narcotic, chemical, and biological agents were employed–as well as sleep deprivation, psychological techniques, electroshock, radiation, hypnotism, and various other forms of torture. Some 86 universities or institutions participated in the experiments. Physicians, toxicologists, mental therapists, etc., also assisted in the program.

See this report: Project MKUltra: One Of The Most Shocking CIA Programs Of All Time

But we are supposed to believe that the federal government would NEVER repeat such activity. Yeah, right!

Regardless of what actually causes someone to go on a murderous rampage, it is an absolute fact that there would be countless more victims without the presence of a firearm.

Amazingly, the national news media and politicians like Barack Obama completely ignore the fact that law-abiding citizens use a firearm to defend themselves against criminal activity over ­­­2.5 million times EACH YEAR. That equates to about 6,850 times A DAY. Plus, women use a firearm to defend themselves against sexual assault some 200,000 times each year.

See the stats here: Gun Facts

But here is what most everyone misses: self-defense is not merely a Bill of Rights issue; it is a NATURAL RIGHT issue. Self-defense is more than a right: it is a duty given us at creation. The Second Amendment does not GRANT us the right of self-defense; it merely PROTECTS the right that was given to us by our Creator. In truth, men have a Natural right of self-defense with or without government approbation. Our colonial forebears astutely recognized and aptly applied this divine duty BEFORE there was such a thing as the Second Amendment. However, we can all thank God that America’s founders were sagacious enough to include this sacred responsibility in our Bill of Rights. That’s something countries such as Australia and Great Britain didn’t do. And that’s why their people have allowed themselves to be disarmed today.

And whether anyone wants to admit it or not, the ONLY reason the tyrannical machinations of the globalists have not already subjugated the western world is because the American people are yet a well-armed citizenry. Should the American people ever be disarmed, another Dark Ages of tyranny and oppression would soon engulf the entire western world.

Ladies and gentlemen, our very survival depends on an armed populace. So, why aren’t America’s pastors and churches shouting this from the pulpits? Why are they so timid and cowardly? Or are they spiritually ignorant? Or are they deliberately deceiving their flocks? Only God knows their hearts. One thing is sure: our pastors are mostly AWOL in defending the Natural right of self-defense in this country.

For example, ChristianNewsWire.com recently covered a press release from the Rev. Rob Schenck. It said:

“In a Facebook post last Friday, Tenn. Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey responded to the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon by saying that ‘fellow Christians’ should consider getting a handgun carry permit to protect themselves. Ramsey provided a link on how to obtain a handgun permit at the end of his posting. Rev. Rob Schenck, president of the National Clergy Council and chairman of the Evangelical Church Alliance, is a minister to top government officials in Washington, D.C. and is the subject of a new documentary addressing gun violence, The Armor of Light, directed by Abigail E. Disney, opening in theaters nationwide on Oct. 30. Schenck says more guns is not the answer.”

See the entire statement here: In Response To Oregon Shootings, Rev. Rob Schenck, President Of The National Clergy Council And Capitol Hill Influencer, Disagrees With And Responds To Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey’s Call To ‘Fellow Christians’ To Consider Arming Themselves

Sorry, Rev. Schenck, more guns IS the answer–at least more peaceful, law-abiding people carrying guns–as John Lott’s exhaustive research unequivocally proves. Maybe Rev. Schenck is advising Barack Obama and other gun grabbers in Washington, D.C., which may further explain the problem.

And since Mr. Schenck is promoting a film that apparently impugns the importance of the Second Amendment, I would suggest that readers purchase James Jaeger’s excellent film that ably demonstrates the absolute necessity of an armed citizenry. The film is entitled “MOLON LABE: How The Second Amendment Guarantees America’s Freedom.” I am proud to be featured in this film.

Find it here: MOLON LABE: How The Second Amendment Guarantees America’s Freedom

Rev. Schenck went on to say, “The best people to give moral advice on guns or any other issue are church leaders, and they’ve been conspicuously silent on the question of Christians arming up in fear. I appeal to pastors and other church leaders to speak out clearly, prayerfully, and biblically on the Christ-like approach to guns, fear, and even love of enemy. I appeal to Christians not to look to secular sources for their most important moral decisions. We must turn to God in prayer, search the Scriptures for wisdom, and look to Christ as our only model for dealing with evil. Pastors can help us find a better way in these trying times; it’s time for them to do so.”

So, the next time a Christian family is being hacked to death by drug-crazed killers or a Christian woman is being brutally raped or a Christian man is being violently accosted, they are supposed to “turn to God in prayer” and “search the Scriptures for wisdom,” Mr. Schenck?

I’m sorry, Rev. Schenck, when that violent gang begins attacking my family, they will be met with more than a prayer and a Bible: they will be met with the slug from a .45 pistol–and if I’m able to get to it, with 00 Buckshot from a 12 gauge shotgun.

But, unfortunately, Rev. Schenck seems to speak for the majority of America’s pastors and churches. All over the country, pastors are teaching their people to be good little slaves and turn in their guns if government should require it–just like pastors did in Nazi Germany.

And, by the way, I seem to recall that Jesus didn’t just “pray and search the Scriptures” when he confronted those moneychangers. He took a whip and beat the living tar out of them. He also bluntly instructed His disciples to buy a sword–even if they had to sell clothes in order to obtain the money to make the purchase. (Luke 22:36) In this passage, Jesus made the sword a higher priority than clothing. That certainly sounds to me like Jesus affirmed the principle that more guns (a Roman sword being the First Century equivalent) IS the answer.

And, for that matter, I HAVE “searched the Scriptures for wisdom,” Mr. Schenck: that’s how my Christian attorney son and I came to write a book entitled “To Keep or Not To Keep: Why Christians Should Not Give Up Their Guns.”

In “To Keep or Not To Keep,” we prove from the Scriptures that self-defense is a God-given duty–a Natural right–and that nowhere does the Bible teach Christians to surrender their means of self-defense to any civil government. Furthermore, I suggest that any Christian who attends a church where the pastor urges his flock to surrender their guns IMMEDIATELY leave that church and find a church that has a Biblical pastor.

Our book is written primarily for Christians. It is not so much a political treatise as it is a Scriptural treatise. Christians simply MUST be educated as to their God-given duty of self-defense. I beseech readers to buy a copy for themselves and for their Christian friends and pastors.

With all due respect to the Rev. Schencks of the world, should this president decide to try and confiscate the guns of the American people, tens of millions of us will respond as did our Christian forebears: MOLON LABE, Mr. Obama.

What Separation Of Church And State?

For the first time in U.S. history, the leader of a major religion was invited to speak before a joint session of Congress. (No. Queen Elizabeth II doesn’t count.) Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals–along with the national news media–are all praising the pontiff’s congressional appearance.

But wait just a doggone minute! How is the pope’s speech before Congress NOT a violation of the separation of church and state?  Everything he talked about was both political and religious based. His left-wing theology permeated what can only be regarded as a blatantly political sermon. Where are all of the folks who demand that Christian pastors not get involved in politics? Furthermore, why is no one threatening the Catholic Church with the loss of its 501c3 tax exempt nonprofit organization status? The Internal Revenue Code is pretty plain about pastors of 501c3 churches (of which, the Catholic Church is the largest) being forbidden from engaging in political activity during their official duties. And when Pope Francis spoke before Congress, did he appear in the attire of a private person? No! He spoke in full papal regalia–meaning, he appeared before Congress in the official capacity as a religious head.

“The Vatican is a state,” you say. In that case, the hypocrisy of Pope Francis to lecture the United States about tearing down our borders and allowing illegal aliens to pour in at will is as obvious and odious as it can possibly be. Before he lectures us about how we should accept any and all illegals into our country, he should set the example and tear down the forty-foot wall surrounding the Vatican City State.

Then there is his pet socialist (yes, Pope Francis is a longtime socialist and Marxist) talking point regarding how rotten America is because of our material success. BARF! Why is no one willing to point out to the pontiff that the Roman Catholic Church is the richest corporation in the entire world? As if he needs any reminder. No corporation is even a close second. Without a doubt, the Catholic Church is the biggest hoarder of wealth on the planet.

But not only is Pope Francis a Marxist/socialist, he is also a globalist. His remarks regarding globalism could have been written by Henry Kissinger. Who knows? Maybe they were.

The history of this pope is one of a lifetime of involvement in Marxist, globalist activities. I strongly recommend readers to take a look at this report:

“Washington’s Pope”? Who is Pope Francis?

When I watch–and listen to–Pope Francis, it reminds of Piers Morgan.

With all due respect to my British friends, when I watch–and listen to–Piers Morgan, I want to fight the War for Independence all over again. And with all due respect to my Catholic friends, when I watch–and listen to–Pope Francis, I want to fight the Reformation wars all over again.

Thankfully, not all Roman Catholics are enamored with this pope. No more than I am enamored with many of our evangelical “popes” such as Joel Osteen and John Hagee.

It constantly amazes me how so many people are so willing to live their entire lives, and predicate the principles of their lives, with ideological, sociological, and theological biases–biases that have nothing to do with truth and everything to do with the advancement of private parochial agendas. And liberals and conservatives, Republicans and Democrats, Christians and secularists are equally culpable.

When President Bill Clinton lied to the American people, liberals and Democrats looked the other way and defended him in every way possible. And when President G.W. Bush lied to the American people, conservatives and Republicans looked the other way and defended him in every way possible.

Too many Catholics defend the pope regardless of his Marxist, socialist ideals. Too many evangelicals defend their denominational leaders regardless of their Marxist, socialist ideals. Even though they claim to reject globalism, too many secular libertarians refuse to deal with the way Bernie Sanders sidesteps the perpetual exploration into global hegemony by Democrat leaders in Washington, D.C. And even though they claim to detest and oppose terrorism, too many religious conservatives refuse to deal with the way that Benjamin Netanyahu and the State of Israel are up to their eyeballs in the sponsorship of all kinds of terrorism–including giving assistance to ISIS and terrorizing the Palestinian people.

Too many people are in a “protected” class, while those sharing alternative ideologies are marked for isolation, persecution, incarceration, or annihilation.

Public schools around the country are making prayer rooms available for Muslim students to pray in during school hours. Colleges and university campuses across the country provide prayer rooms, foot baths in bathrooms, and holy days for Muslim students. And no federal judge suggests that such conduct violates the SCOTUS rulings banning prayer in public schools. No school principal or college president or dean is put in jail. No mayor or city councilman of a “sanctuary” city that openly defies federal immigration laws is thrown in jail. But a Christian clerk in a Kentucky county is sent to jail by a federal judge for refusing to sign her name on a same-sex “marriage” license.

Liberals ignore the injustices and crimes against humanity by Sunni Muslims in Saudi Arabia and Turkey, while conservatives ignore the injustices and crimes against humanity by Talmudic Jews in Israel. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson ignore black-on-black crime, while Franklin Graham ignores police abuse. Conservatives ignore Ben Carson’s biggest big-government scheme of all the presidential candidates so far: government-mandated vaccinations, while liberals ignore the crimes of the biggest criminal in the field: Hillary Clinton.

But, inviting the pope to speak before a joint session of Congress has to take the all-time prize for hypocrisy and for the most glaring double standard of the entire media and political worlds.

Our founding documents (Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights) were written to protect us all from despots from both the left and the right, from both secular and religious zealots. As human beings created in the likeness of our Creator, we all have the same intrinsic, Natural rights. The purpose of government is to protect those Natural rights.

Now, all rules are off. There are no safeguards and no protections. Nothing is secure and nothing is sacred. The rule of law has been replaced with the rule of whatever one can get by with. Nothing is wrong, only politically incorrect. The Rights of Man have been replaced with the rule of government.

This isn’t America anymore.

For the first time in U.S. history, congressional leaders from both parties invited the head of a major religious institution (Pope Francis) to use the U.S. Capitol building to promote a blatantly leftist, globalist agenda IN THE NAME OF RELIGION. This one cannot be blamed on Barack Obama. He has no control of Capitol Hill. This was the collaboration of John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, and Harry Reid.

So, pardon me while I laugh the next time someone accuses the pastor of a small church on Main Street, USA of violating the separation of church and state when he delivers a message supporting the right to life of unborn babies or traditional marriage or the lawful right of self-defense.

Pastors who relate Biblical principles to our country’s political affairs have NEVER violated the “separation of church and state.” Had Colonial preachers adhered to the modern interpretation of Thomas Jefferson’s personal letter to the Danbury, Connecticut, Baptists (from whence the phrase “wall of separation between church and state” has been taken–but which appears in NO official U.S. document), we would still be a Crown colony of England.

But after this week, we can all say, “Separation of church and state? What separation of church and state?”
