Deceiving Christian Smiles

It is sad to see how people will act against their own best interest in favor of politicians who dream up false schemes such as the 2009 tea-bag revolt.

Sharron Angle
Sharron Angle: maybe we would call it a republi-smile?

(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) - Meaningful conclusions support the concept that critical thinking is more important than arriving at a preconceived correct answer. In other words, an open mind is essential to getting at the truth!

But to the Republican See which controls the Party, experimentation by its followers is discouraged in favor of them doing as they are told beginning with the axiom to “smile” constantly if they are running for office or defending a position taken by the Christian Right. In Nevada a disciple is running to unseat Harry Reid, leader of the Majority Democratic Party, but her example is valid wherever the Party is in control.

Sharron Angle states emphatically that she is a Christian and, in keeping with the spirit of the Republican Holy See, presumes Jesus [aka God] is in control of all things human. She smiles broadly and continuously even when caught in inconsistencies and logical error, as if her interviewer is questioning the validity of her misguided faith.

Jesus as God is a construct by a Judaic coterie that created the Christian religion to replace the One God of the Jewish Nation with One God of All nations. Jesus was groomed to be the essential man - Christ - but was not anointed as such until just before his crucifixion. [Ref. Book of Isaiah].

It is sad to see how people will act against their own best interest in favor of politicians who dream up false schemes such as the 2009 tea-bag revolt, a test and a ruse perpetrated by the Republican Party to discern how gullible [and reliable] is its indoctrinated base of individuals who will act as a block without the foggiest notion of the damage they are doing to themselves or to the nation. Their minds, as is Sharron Angle’s, is like a prison, a condition of mental incarceration that denies them self-realization because their faith and desire is controlled by others.

What's this about the story about the Black Panthers? I knew several from back in the 60's, but the "new" Black Panthers are a whole different group. Very full of hate for all white people and advocate for seperation of the races and their own homeland. They did engage in voter threats during the November 2008 election in Philidelphia. Two of the perps evidently did not show up for their court appearance, thus they were adjudicated guilty by default. Currently a U.S. Justice Department official has come out accusing the Justice Department of corruption in this matter, i.e., Atty. General Eric Holder, so it will not go away anytime soon and will be an election issue for many years into the future. It's getting more play on the news recently and that will continue. Editor is that the truth you were referring to? If this had been say the KKK doing it, then I'm sure we would have seen more [relentless]news on that kind of criminal behavior. Our election poll sites are sacred, so we cannot let this go unpunished. We are all suppose to be equal under the law, right? Past bad behaviors does not allow for contemporary "payback."

Editor you really don't seem to understand what the surge was about nor the utter corruption of Reid. As far as you being in Iraq, were you in command of a military unit engaged in coordinating with the Iraqi community regarding what the process was about. Were you in Iraq before the invasion and have knowledge what life was like under Saddam? Or are you just some individual who spent a wee bit of time there just floating around hitching rides and looking for things/events to reinforce your agenda, an agenda based on ignorance? People like you have always been such a detriment to getting out the truth to people. Fortunately on this Independence weekend, you will have absolutley zero influence, except maybe on those equally limited on the ways of the world and the evil that resides among us. My family has an extensive background in serving all over the planet going back to the 18th century, I doubt you have any experience in military operations on even the smallest of levels. And what in the hell did my previous post have to do with zionism or Bush. My God man, at least Bush kept the country on an even keel, you now have trash like Reid taking orders from a racist. Do you even know that Obama ordered the obstruction of justice to drop the criminal sentencing of those racist black muslim panthers? The case was over by default, and the judge in the matter just wanted Justice input for sentencing when they moved to vacate the default via Obama's political appointees. Do you not keep up with current events? Or are you so agenda driven that you've morphed into a character similar to Moby Dick? Get with it young man! Are you a journalist or are you a shill for the liars in gthe democratic party, aka, anti-Americans. How can you possibly delude yourself to believe the crap coming out of the Whitehouse? Like the stimulus saved the economy and has created millions of jobs.

Editor: I was in Iraq for the end of the Surge; all of my information comes from the people at the core of the action; telling Iraqi people they were cutting off the flow of money and they in turn were telling the Americans I was with that all of the IED's would soon be back.  I did not meet a single Iraqi (and we're talking about a lot of people) off US payroll, who told me Iraq was better off because of the US war, not a single one.  I am a lifelong military student and former US Marine; I have more knowledge about military history and affairs at hand and ready to go from memory than almost any other person I have ever met.  I didn't just spend time in Iraq going from one place and type of operation for four weeks in '08; prior to that I covered the war in Afghanistan and did the same type of work for eight weeks.  You can't ask a journalist if they have ever 'commanded' a military unit, if I was a military commander I wouldn't be a journalist, do you understand that?  I know the war in Iraq was a mistake, I know W. Bush is the worst president in US history, I know Obama isn't a racist, though I suspect you are.  I know the story of the Black Panthers, do you?  I totally support in concept the notion of a group taking the reigns from cruel and illegal police, you bet.  I also think Hugo Chavez is a good man, I think Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is totally constantly taken out of context.  I believe that Zionism is at the root of all problems in this world, and that the Bible is used as a damned excuse by people of your mindset to kill and destroy and ravage the plant, while supporting things like oil exploration, as all good GOP parrots do.  So I would summarize this by saying that you are absolutely inferior to me when it comes to the understand of any military history of any kind.  A person doesn't need to send troops to their death to understand what war is, believe me.  I have appreciated the horror of it in person twice and will likely go back again soon.  People like you will always try to bring it down but in the end I call the shots, I decide what is reported.  If your comments are civil they will be approved, if they are not they will not be.  I laugh at your statement about people like me are 'a detriment to getting the truth out' and I almost want to write that one down, becuase if there is one thing I adhere to it is truth.  You can take that one to the bank; the use of it has brought me credibility that you couldn't buy with all the riches of the world.

Ken I really am not that interested what senate candidate Sharon Angles' religious values are, but what her political background and experience is compared to Sen. Reid. If you recall Sen. Reid a few years back as the senate majority leader claimed the Iraq war was lost and the surge was a waste of time, along with a continuous barage of other insulting remarks. I had a son in Iraq at the time and the unit morale as per my son was adversely impacted. Most people now pretty well refute what Reid said at that time, but to me his overall performance has been quite negative. It also appears at this time that the majority of Nevada voters want him gone. Though I am not a Nevada voter, I want him gone because of what he has done on a national level in regards to his influence. I know nothing of Sharon Angle other than the conflicting reports on her as per different party sources. Here is her website address for her own personal take: http://www.sharronangle.com/ I imagine this November's election will be quite similar to the 1994 election. In a few months we'll see.

Editor: The Iraq war was lost and the surge saved American lives but then ended after a year.  The people of Iraq were divided by the west along religious lines for the first time in history.  I was there when the surge ended, it was a bad idea.  I have known Harry Reid for many years and he was a silent sin city politician until Bush screwed so many things up that he had to come out swinging.  Zionism is the opposite of U.S. patriotism.

"Anon": SO if your "faith" or your personal, political, pandering points are so potent, why NOT have enough confidence and control of emotional response to use your open, honest name on what you --you repeatedly declare !-- "believe" so very firmly and "honestly" ?? One acts anonymously to hide SOMEthing...either from others OR psychologically from the very self declaring "belief" and "faith". Multiple longterm solid and documented research, in more than one cognitive-based area, available as proof of that simple, open, honest sharing/learning statement..."faith" thus not needed for rational,reasonable persons seeking truth.

Ken: this subject has been debated for a thousand years, by people much more learned than you and I. There is no answer, it is faith. But, that you did not address my correlation in regards to the subject matter I wrote afterwards, which is of upmost more importance, shows me that I will stick with my own faith. Our beliefs are one thing, how we react on a daily basis is another. I believe that my words I wrote, after my sentence about Jesus being constructed, is more important. I agreed with this author about how deception is used, I just wanted to show how it is also used in the republican/democrat forum. A democrat, or republican, will sell their soul, so that their team does not come in second place. I do not debate personal spiritual beliefs. TO believe in a democratic/republican system, is far worse than believing whether Jesus is God or not. In my humble opinion. To even think, that the republicans actually believe in Jesus is a joke. They use it to get elected. Just as democrats do the same in other ways. Our entire DC government system is completely corrupt, out of control, inept, abusive, controlled, and sometimes think they are even evil. Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinech (sp), Alan Greyson, are the only 3 I know of that are at least trying to share a shred of truth.

I just bought a plastic card with pictures of all the presidents. What is interesting is that up to 1961 all the presidents have stiff facial expression. Looks like the era of smiling presidents started with John Kennedy. My guess would be that it's somehow connected with feminism movement. I might be wrong, though.. who knows what actually started this tradition...

Ken Ramey July 1, 2010 3:58 pm (Pacific time)

Ano: Read Isaiah with an open mind to find the basis for my use of "construction." Jesus was coached all the way to the cross as Isaiah makes clear. Jesus was the synbol for the coterie's Christian philosophy,and the "esential man," the Christ from which the religion took its name. But he had to agree to die for the cause as Jesus did in Jerusalem where he was tried before Pilate. Christianity becomes obvious when ISAIAH is read logically.

Go, Ken!

that Jesus was "constructed" is highly controversial, in fact, has little fact basis. Altho, the rest of the article hits home, not only in regards to those that hide behind some religious faith, but those that hide behind a particular party (repub/demo), as I have noted in other posts. Its the exact same thing, and I have seen in both instances that people act against their own interests. Be an individual, and seek truth. It is more important now, than ever.
