Hatch and Bennett–Modern-Day Kishkumen

Utah Senators Bennett and Hatch are “Mormon,” are they not? Then why would a member of the Church have any problem with their politics?  Why would a member of the Church dare to compare them to Kishkumen in the Book of Mormon? Well, today I’m going to do just that.  It’s unfortunate that it will ruffle the feathers of many. I regret that result. Not because I feel that I am a perpetrator of contention, but because my reasoning and rationale will fall on deaf ears of good people who could make a difference if they truly understood. 

Today I received an e-mail from Senator Hatch’s office.  It was entitled “Open E-mail to All Republicans for Orrin Hatch.”  Why I personally received this e-mail, I have no idea.  I’ve previously made my distrust and dissatisfaction of the actions of both Senators very clear.  In his e-mail Sen. Hatch says, Today we are going to take some of the good Utah values that we hold so dear and make Washington stand up and take notice…”  He goes on to say that he is going to propose two amendments to the health care bill. While the substance of the amendments in and of themselves have merit (putting the horror of abortion, especially federally funded ones, in their proper place of evil) my objection to his amendments is that he’s merely attempting to put lipstick on a pig. 

Why are Senators Bennett and Hatch tolerating the proposal of the health care bill in the first place?  What scripture do they read that states that you can demand and take money from one person to pay for another?  What part of the Gospel of Jesus Christ says that we are entitled to health care? What lessons did they miss in the scriptures that compare egregious taxations to slavery?  Just as importantly, tell me where in the U.S. Constitution does it state that Congress, or ANY political leader, has the authority and power to do ANYTHING with healthcare on a governmental basis? Where does it give them the authority whatsoever to be working on bills that have to do with nationalized (Socialized) healthcare??

Rather than fighting full board against a bill that is designed to bring more control to our Federal government, and destroy choice, accountability and personal liberty in the process, these senators are working on “amending it.” This is not helping Utah or Americans. This is simply politics in its most base form, as usual. These actions do nothing to restore liberty, sovereignty and independence.

Captain Moroni had no tolerance for individuals such as these. He struck down those who did not fight FOR freedom—as in put their very lives at risk for it—not simply butter it up, take it out to lunch, and perhaps amend it.

I can’t stress enough that there is no such thing as “just politics.” All of our actions which we may want to compartmentalize and label as “just politics” have significant and eternal spiritual consequences. 

A point to remember. Senator Hatch provided the deciding vote on the gun ban in 1994.  It now seems that he is also positioning himself to do the same with this healthcare bill.  Senator Hatch was the AUTHOR of the heinous Serve America Act with Kennedy!

Bennett is more concerned about reelection, after promising that he would only serve 2 terms, than he is about the freedom of Americans. I have not found ONE bill that Bennett sponsored or co-sponsored which enhanced the freedom of our nation and the integrity of the Constitution. (Maybe he’s lost count of the number of years he’s served?)

Why did Bennett and Hatch vote FOR the clearly evil Cass Sunstein as the regulatory czar when it’s clearly unconstitutional to even have czars! Sunstein has made no secret that he wants to rewrite the Constitution, limit access to free speech on the internet, television, and radio, and claims that “ironclad convictions cannot be allowed” and “open-mindedness should be mandatory” and “there is no liberty without dependency.” (Doesn’t that sound like it’s right out of the adversary’s playbook?!) Further, Sunstein doesn’t believe in individual’s rights, but in the rights of a community, county, or region. So how could Bennett and Hatch stand in FAVOR of such a being given power to regulate our rights?  You can’t believe that Bennett and Hatch were ignorant of this man’s beliefs and intents when they voted FOR evil.

Ok, I’m getting a bit riled.  This isn’t about a particular party.  This is about people who claim to believe in the Gospel but who vote and behave in direct contradiction to it.  In Doctrine & Covenants 98:5-10 it specifically talks about how the law of the land is supporting the principle of freedom and is justifiable before God.  In verse 6 it specifically states that the saints are to befriend the constitution. And if there is any further doubt about the place of the Constitution in our land for our day, Doctrine and Covenants 101:77 clearly states that HE caused the Constitution to be established.  Unless you believe that the Doctrine & Covenants is no longer relevant to our day, we must be valiant in supporting the Constitution as it is given to us by a loving and wise Heavenly Father. 

Bottom line, the U.S. Constitution is not to be ignored, marginalized, or weakened by our acts (or a lack of action)—and certainly not by those who have been entrusted to support the Constitution. “I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States.”   I know that I am willing to hold true to such an oath. Are you? Then PLEASE vote, protest, stand firm, and be the solution accordingly.

Aliens Attack the U.S.

By Kellene Bishop

 

In view of Obama’s pick for U.S. Regulatory Czar, I have truly been converted today to the reality of aliens from outer space.  I say this because I have no earthly idea where a person would come up with such alien statements and beliefs as this person does.  Because the Sunstein Doctrine is so completely foreign to the substance and culture of this nation, it clearly demonstrates proof that Obama is pursuing his own agenda and not that of the American people.  I am 100% certain that this guy’s beliefs are indeed foreign.

 

cass-sunsteinIntroducing Cass Sunstein, the nominee to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.  This name accompanied by his bloodcurdling doctrine should cause you to shudder.  The fact that he would rape and pillage the first five Constitutional Amendments is only the tip of the iceberg.  Read on to see this freak of nature at his best.

 

In 2007, during a speech given at Harvard, Sunstein proposed that hunting be banned throughout the United States.  Ok, I can try to give him credit for wanting to save the lives of the hunting partners of Dick Cheney, but unfortunately his mutant beliefs only get more far fetched from here.

 

He believes that the internet is “anti-Democratic” because users can filter out any objectionable material.  As such he believes that the required use of technology by all citizens is necessary to ensure that a site contains “fair and balanced” information and that such a requirement should be put into play as soon as possible.  Does this mean that every site that communicates sound Christian values should also be required to communicate the thoughts and opinions of Satanic cults?  Does this mean if a site displays a picture of a virtuous woman that that same site must give the viewer access to porn as well?  And yes, Sunstein has gone so far as to declare that non-profit groups should be required to publish counter positions to theirs on their own websites.  That’s right.  If Mother Teresa had a web site, she would be required to provide information on Hitler as well.

 

He also believes that we should be required to use software which would  prevent anyone from sending an e-mail in which the SOFTWARE determines holds “uncivil” comments.  Awww.  Ain’t that cute?  These poor little defenseless politicians must have had their feelings hurt by all that was said during the Tea Parties.  They need a software program to protect them from hearing any dissenting opinions.  He proposes that this software double-ask the sender if they really want to send an “uncivil” e-mail message.  And if they do, then the e-mail must be filed away for 24 hours for a mandatory cooling off period.  Oh I get it.  The First Amendment gives free speech, but only if it’s not offensive to anyone.  Right.

 

radicals-in-robesIn his book “Radical to Robes” Sunstein writes that he believes that all gun control legislation is constitutionally congruent.  He believes that the U.S. Supreme court “got it wrong” in determining that the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms applies to individuals.

 

Ok, here’s a real loony one.  In his 2004 book entitled “Animal Rights” he wrote that he believed that “Animals should be permitted to bring suit, with human beings as their representatives …”  Holy cow!  (pun intended)  I’m all about protecting animals, but providing them with a public defender at the expense of tax dollars is laughable!  If you hurt my dogs, I will indeed defend them, but where will it stop?  We already have an over burgeoning court system.  Criminals get off for murder of a human being?  What additional justice are we to expect when a person sends an uncivil e-mail to Mickey Mouse?  Are the lawyers not making enough money?  Do they need to start chasing Fido rather than ambulances?  Where does the U.S. Constitution stand on giving animals the same rights as humans?  Oh yeah.  It doesn’t.  And besides, how can we expect to preserve and protect the Constitutional rights of animals when we are proving ourselves incapable or unwilling to preserve and protect the rights of legal, law-abiding American citizens?  If you give animals constitutional rights, then you must give them consequences as well.  Will we expect law enforcement to release Shack, the vicious Pit Bull because he wasn’t read his Miranda Rights?

 

To me, here is the most horrific aspect of all of this.  Read what Obama thinks of this individual, specifically in relation to his ability to uphold the Constitutional rights and freedoms of our citizens: “As one of America’s leading constitutional scholars, Cass Sunstein has distinguished himself in a range of fields, including administrative law and policy, environmental law, and behavioral economics,” said Obama at his nomination of his regulatory czar.  “He is uniquely qualified to lead my administration’s regulatory reform agenda at this crucial stage in our history. Cass is not only a valued adviser, he is a dear friend and I am proud to have him on my team.”  I have no doubt that he is a dear friend of Obama’s based on this information.  However, it’s clear that Sunstein knows about as much about the constitution as Anderson Cooper and Janeane Garofalo know about civility.

 

too-many-choicesTo completely prove my case of this alien-born, anti-Christ, Sunstein states “limitless individual choices, with respect to communications, is not necessarily in the interest of citizenship and self-government.”  Yup.  We’re just dumb human beings incapable of making the “right” choice if we are presented with so many choices.  You’re right Sunstein.  Americans simply have too many choices, and as such we’re certainly making the wrong decisions.  But I ask you, why stop at the internet, Sunstein?  Why not reel in those villainous makers of feminine products as well?  Slim, mini, super, extra super, pink, blue, white, mega, etc.  How is a sane person to choose?  I find the vast amount of tampons for women completely overwhelming and sending my poor husband out to retrieve the proper box could result in a 3rd World War.  I’m sure limiting our choices between good, bad, evil, and truly in our best interests was exactly what the Founding Father feared in declaring ultimate freedom from an oppressed government.  Too bad they didn’t declare freedom from beings from Mars as well.  I’d feel a lot safer now.

 

I think the best science fiction writers of our time will find merit in the Sunstein Doctrine. After all, it will provide great fodder for their story lines.  What’s the saying?  “Truth is stranger than fiction.”  We might as well prepare ourselves for the same kind of alien invasion represented in the Will Smith movie, “Independence Day”, if we are to tolerate a man in such a controlling a position as this.
