  • Kentucky and Indiana would feel federal spending cuts from defense to parks- Courier Journal

  • Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has said the looming defense spending cuts will “hollow out” America’s military. House Speaker John Boehner, R-West Chester, has called the cuts a threat to national security.-

Here’s a section taken from the White House Propaganda Government Website- this is specific to Arizona the state in which I reside:

If sequestration were to take effect, some examples of the impacts on Arizona this year alone are:

  • Teachers and Schools: Arizona will lose approximately $17.7 million in funding for primary and secondary education, putting around 240 teacher and aide jobs at risk. In addition about 19,000 fewer students would be served and approximately 70 fewer schools would receive funding.
  •  Education for Children with Disabilities: In addition, Arizona will lose approximately $10 million in funds for about 120 teachers, aides, and staff who help children with disabilities.
  • Work-Study Jobs: Around 2,310 fewer low income students in Arizona would receive aid to help them finance the costs of college and around 330 fewer students will get work-study jobs that helpthem pay for college.
  • Head Start: Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for approximately 1,000 children in Arizona, reducing access to critical early education.
  • Protections for Clean Air and Clean Water: Arizona would lose about $2.1 million in environmental funding to ensure clean water and air quality, as well as prevent pollution from pesticides and hazardous waste. In addition, Arizona could lose another $1.1 million in grants for fish and wildlife protection.
  •  Military Readiness: In Arizona, approximately 10,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed, reducing gross pay by around $52.5 million in total.
  • Army: Base operation funding would be cut by about $43 million in Arizona.
  •  Air Force: Funding for Air Force operations in Arizona would be cut by about $6 million.
  • Law Enforcement and Public Safety Funds for Crime Prevention and Prosecution: Arizona will lose about $298,000 in Justice Assistance Grants that support law enforcement, prosecution and courts, crime prevention and education, corrections and community corrections, drug treatment and enforcement, and crime victim and witness initiatives.
  •  Job Search Assistance to Help those in Arizona find Employment and Training: Arizona will lose about $781,000 in funding for job search assistance, referral, and placement, meaning around 26,360 fewer people will get the help and skills they need to find employment.
  • Child Care: Up to 500 disadvantaged and vulnerable children could lose access to child care, which is also essential for working parents to hold down a job.
  • Vaccines for Children: In Arizona around 2,570 fewer children will receive vaccines for diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, whooping cough, influenza, and Hepatitis B due to reduced funding for vaccinations of about $176,000.
  •  Public Health: Arizona will lose approximately $611,000 in funds to help upgrade its ability to respond to public health threats including infectious diseases, natural disasters, and biological, chemical, nuclear, and radiological events. In addition, Arizona will lose about $1.9 million in grants to help prevent and treat substance abuse, resulting in around 4,500 fewer admissions to substance abuse programs. And the Arizona State Department of Health Services will lose about $186,000 resulting in around 4,600 fewer HIV tests.
  •  STOP Violence Against Women Program: Arizona could lose up to $132,000 in funds that provide services to victims of domestic violence, resulting in up to 500 fewer victims being served.
  •  Nutrition Assistance for Seniors: Arizona would lose over $1 million in funds that provide meals for seniors.

The “Nationwide” Impact bullet points weren’t so terrible. Getting rid of TSA is not a bad thing in my opinion. Both Republicans and Democrats are always looking for a reason to allow slave labor illegals into the US for cheap labor and if they get citizenship it just is a bonus for everyone since they will be new tax revenue generators. Really, read through the “National” effects and you’ll see it isn’t all that bad. Don’t buy into the hype and there’s plenty of that. Don’t forget while you’re reading the Potus himself came up with this plan. As much as Obama desires to blame the Republicans for being obstinate, he’s the one who appears to be withholding progress.

Obama Rejects Plan For More Say In Spending Cuts- CBS DC

“The impact won’t be immediate. Federal workers would be notified next week that they will have to take up to a day off every week without pay, but the furloughs won’t start for a month due to notification requirements. That will give negotiators some breathing room to work on a deal.”
Sequester is not the end of America and it’s certainly not the end of the world. Look at the UK, Portugal, Greece, and other countries that have survived Austerity, they’re still alive. However, it is odd how this particular crisis is lining up with the drama being drawn out in Rome (Vatican City is paralleling Washington DC in relationship to the ‘governmental’ changes taking place). Weird. Maybe if a few meteors fall out of the sky on Friday we’ll be more inclined to buy the barrels of seed and drums of barley. For now we endure $4.50 gallon gas, less pay, more taxes, and Michelle Obama procuring her next invasion of pop culture showing up on TV shows.

  As long as we continue using the term “Sequester” it keeps us preoccupied and distracted by the “Austerity” package that is being manufactured for consumption.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In economics, austerity refers to a policy of deficit-cutting by lowering spending via a reduction in the amount of benefits and public services provided.[1] Austerity policies are often used by governments to try to reduce their deficit spending[2] and are sometimes coupled with increases in taxes to demonstrate long-term fiscal solvency to creditors.[3]

Supporters of austerity predict that under expansionary fiscal contraction (EFC), a major reduction in government spending can change future expectations about taxes and government spending, encouraging private consumption and resulting in overall economic expansion.[4]

Critics argue that, in periods of recession and high unemployment, austerity policies are counter-productive, because: a) reduced government spending can increase unemployment, which increases safety net spending while reducing tax revenue; b) reduced government spending reduces GDP, which means the debt to GDP ratio examined by creditors and rating agencies does not improve; and c) short-term government spending financed by deficits supports economic growth when consumers and businesses are unwilling or unable to do so.Source Here

Don’t lose sight people, this may turn out to be either the most devastating act of Obama onto the American people or, it’ll be a huge facade of nothingness like the Fiscal Cliff, the Debt Crisis, and that great Recession he ‘inherited.’

Source of Obama Cartoon was this article: Phil Gramm: Obama and the Sequester Scare

“For a typical American family that earns less than it did in the year President Obama was elected, the anguished cries and dark predictions coming out of the White House should elicit not sympathy but revulsion.

When the 1985 sequester was created, the formula for cuts was closely examined, debated, amended and agreed to by a Democratic House and a Republican Senate and White House. Today’s sequester is denounced because of the allegedly arbitrary nature of its across-the-board cuts. Yet the sequester formula that goes into effect on Friday preserves the spending priorities legislated by the Congress and the president, including exemptions and limitations they favored when the Budget Control Act of 2011 became law. The president himself first proposed the sequester. He may not like the way it works, but he has offered no real alternative.” Click here for more

The End of the World

We can’t end 2012 without addressing the End of the World.

If the re-eclection of Obama didn’t cause the heavens to fall from their place perhaps the fiscal cliff will.

It appears the “Church” has also abandoned their faith in the Mayan Calendar predictions as most of those Bible “scholars” who piggy backed off the Mayan’s false prophecies published their books and dvd’s in 2010, well ahead of the impending date so as to capitalize without looking silly. (Link NOT an endorsement)

The US, the very same US that was “Hanging by a shred!” is still very much in power (for now), the economy is on life support but has been for a few decades, shhh, everyone thinks black Friday and cyber Monday saved us.

So, what happens when the world continues to perpetuate itself? Do you who counted on not existing fall into a deep depression? Were you counting on being a crispy speck of dust? Are your converse still tied to your feet and your Ipad still pumping out the latest pins? I mean does the whole world implode because it didn’t explode? Does your faith waver? Do you doubt God’s word because the preacher man told you not to buy green bananas or renew your subscription to Runner’s World?  Can your faith stand?

Did you make plans for 2013? Some people literally do not live for the future because each and every day is filled with an all consuming preoccupation with “leaving.” I beg you to put your faith, hope and trust in the Lord and to focus on what His word really says and although any day here could be your last, live!

There is a natural desire for life to perpetuate itself. Most people, and animals as well, seek to live and try to sustain life. Hence, procreation. There’s no greater oxymoron to me than the Pro-lifer who is adamant about saving the unborn and in the same breath speaks of blowing up people in other countries (for their own self-preservation) knowing that should God take them they’d go to heaven as believers in Christ Jesus, but those in the other countries the same could not be said. But, I digress. There have been many false teachers, false prophesies out there for a very long time. Here are but a few of those failed pieces of propaganda,  for those who like vintage art: (Click on images to enlarge)

The End of the World will come, eventually. Don’t worry, if you want to be here that bad to see it you may get your wish. There are people who truly are seeing and understanding the last day of their loved ones here on earth. There is real loss out there, real pain, and you who are healthy and whom grace has abound in your life should be grateful and stop pining and whining for thee last day. Be ready, to live for Christ. Have the gospel on your lips.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

“According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. 23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; 26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again. 27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. 29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; 30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.” Philippians 1:20-30


For those of you reading this post because December 21, 2012 is near I am including this full length video. I DO NOT endorse these people on this video, I’m posting it to illustrate to you that these false preachers have been saying “The End is Near” for a long time. In the Eighties it was the Ozone Layer that was going to suck us out of the earth, today it’s Climate Change, Solar Flares and Mayan Aliens. There will be an END, no doubt, but there is a clear and definitive path that we are on and ‘the end is not yet.’ Your end may be near, you may die being hit by a car, you may lose someone close to you and their end will have come, we all who are alive are destined to die. I will die and I know where I’m going to go, hence no anxiety over it, but I rather live as long as I can and do what God has called me to do on this earth for as long as He will allow me.

Here’s the Saturday Night Feature Presentation of a Retro End of Days movie, these old guys are still around selling the same can of doomsday in a new package…

Americans Want the Novus Ordo Seclorum

“The New World Order.”

Americans want it and they need and although they hate it they can’t function autonomously in a world that is Globally run, unless we Americans are willing to trade places with countries like those in third world Africa. Would lady “Liberty” give up her technology, her global dominance in Military might, her manipulated and concocted image of the bringer of Democracy to the oppressed? We don’t want a President that knows how much a gallon of gas costs or a gallon of milk. Are you going to hire your teenagers high school Economics teacher who understands the middle class and how capitalism works to be the head of the Federal Reserve? Oh no, how about the junior college dean of Social Sciences to head up DHS? Let’s face it people, we don’t care that Romney is a Millionaire or that Obama is and was coddled from cradle to Harvard to Pennsylvania Ave. We need the elite to take care of us, to provide us with a sense of direction, to challenge us on occasion that we are going to lose our “rights” when in reality our rights have been whitewashed long ago. We know in the deepest parts of our inner being that we are slaves to the New World Order and yet we take shallow breaths and hand write an occasional poster board to alleviate some angst. We idly sat and watched the Government of the US coupled with working men and women in MERS puff up our real estate market and give homes and sign loans over to people on welfare because it made our little three bedroom house go up 20-30% in value and we borrowed against that knowing full well the bubble couldn’t stay afloat forever. Us middle class understand a little something about helium balloons; they last a little longer than latex but they too eventually deflate! We knew the crash was coming. We’re not as dumb as the elite want to believe we are. But we took the hit; we accepted the foreclosures the short sales and the bank bailouts so that we could at least have a job to go to. We save our money for iphones so that we can have a semblance of wealth, even though we are poorer than our grandparents and we will not be retiring well into our grandkids teenage years. We accept that politicians run our lives, we acknowledge that we will be dragged into illegal wars and kill innocent people in other countries based on nothing more than fear that is bred in the pulpits every Sunday of Muslims. We will take the red pill and chase it with a blue pill as we watch the controlled media, that’s MSM and alternative, tell us that if we don’t forfeit our liberties some other group will come in and hunt us in our sleep. We will act scared when the financial experts tell us that bailouts will devalue the dollar and that the US greenback is going to be replaced, but when we are eventually told that there has been a currency called the “Special Drawing Rights” (SDR’s) functioning for decades and that all trade is taking place on a basket of currencies not just the USD then we’ll breathe a collective sigh of relief. As long as we can order our take out food, rent a movie, and shuttle our yuppie kids to their friends sleep over we’ll be ok. Both political parties work effectively to drive the divide between the haves and the have nots, the rich and the poorer. We are ok with having poor people around, as long as we don’t slip under the poverty line we’re ok. We’ll cry, we’ll protest, we’ll lament, we’ll blog, but in the end we’ll accept the Novus Ordo Seclorum because it’s the greatest piece of deception that has ever been. We want to believe, that America is the Greatest Nation on Earth; that the Sun rises and sets on our face and our face alone. We don’t really care about other countries that are run by tyrants, give us our ballot box! Never mind that other countries are consolidating their debt and their power and will rise as a phoenix over the ashes of the United States, as long as we rise first, better, and higher than theirs we’ll be ok. Because nothing bad ever happens to those who deny God and His Son, those people are always given mercy and grace in the bible. We’ll be blessed forever and ever, even if the entire US government builds a war that comes upon Israel, we’ll be ok because the “Church” in America stands by Israel. Because the Church in America hasn’t denied the Christ who saved them. We’ll be ok. Everything is good. Nothing to complain about really.

I was just in one of those moods this morning to write a slap in the face. If you get it, hit the “like” button.

FauxNews:What Didn’t happen in 2010

Faux: Fake, not real, artificial or imitation.

News: something not previously known to wide audience that is disseminated to the masses via Satellite TV, Cable, Social Media, Radio, Internet.

I always like the end of the year reflectional type of shows. Shows that highlight all the happenings of the year gone by. It’s so quaint how one can summarize great events that impact the course of human life in terms of 10 second sound bites, flash media, and then just as quick as the show is over, move on to the next year’s ‘prophesies’ as though we had any foreknowledge of what just happened to justify predictions of the forthcoming year.

In lieu of the real news I will first address the ‘FauxNews;’ that which was contrived and set out before us like a table fully decorated in fine China, soft linens, and exquisite silverware.

Health Care Reform– Passing Socialist Legislature. Disregarding the American people’s objections the Congress passed this Unconstitutional piece of TP without so much as one burp of anger following the vote. The American people were neutered in one night and told to accept Tyranny – and they did.

Cordoba House– Ground Zero Mosque. First Americans were angry about this. They protested and held vigils. Then the United States State Department sent the Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf to the Gulf to solicit money for the construction. Upon finding out that our own government was sponsoring this building, the protests continued to be directed in the wrong direction (at the Imam) as opposed to the real culprit, our own Government. Once again, the dehumanized American public turned a blind eye to truth and chose to keep the ‘enemy’ they have been brainwashed into hating- Islam. **Cults have existed since man’s fall from grace. What we should be fighting is the true enemy, Satan; and we do this by Preaching the FULL complete unadulterated Gospel. Not picketing a mosque.

Sb1070- Arizona’s State Version of a Federal Law that is not enforced. Now neither is! This was deliberate action by our own politicians to pit ‘Americans’ against Immigrants and vice versa. First of all it was a hoax. It generated a lot of publicity, Arizona didn’t loose. The Immigrants didn’t loose. In the end the controversy forced us take a side only to later realize the Governor of AZ didn’t care if it passed or not, nor did most people in Arizona.

Price of Gold- The price of Gold has been artificially pumped up to levels not seen since the great depression.  The IMF will find a way to switch it’s gold holdings into a way to bailout countries who are indebted to them, while switching real wealth into a SDR. It’s a real conundrum but just accept that Global Elites will not allow you, Johnny Rocket or you Susie Desperate Homemaker, to have ANY wealth. Kiss those bullion’s goodbye!

“Burn a Koran,” says ‘Pastor’ Terry Jones – Koran burning that never was. This crackpot decided to advertise that he was going to burn Korans on 9-11. He never intended to, but he got plenty of publicity for acting like he would. Hate groups came out of the woodwork, MSM claimed it would start a new surge of terror attacks in Afghanistan and Iraq. In the end a few guys with a Koran and a BBQ pit burned a few Korans and posted to You tube. No one cared. It disappeared from the media as quickly as it came.

Restoring Honor Rally (Glenn Beck’s 2010 Interfaith Social Justice Dogma come home to roost inside every Greedy Evangelical Mega Pastor’s Dream). I have a dream too, however my dream does not include Satanists and Wiccans joining hands with me to keep our freedom. Glenn a professing Mormon called on his evangelical friends, Catholic, Jewish, Gay Clergy you name it, as long as it looked religious it was welcome to join hands with him on stage for a cry fest that lead to a revival without any repentance. Not one denounced their false god, idolatry, spiritual fornication, or social justice-prosperity gospel-kingdom now theology-heresy. The rally that was meant to ‘take back America’ turned out to be more ‘man’ worship and savior seeking among mortals then really seeking the Jesus Christ of the Bible. Glenn did manage to raise the flag above apostate churches. Thank you for that Beck, you made it much easier to identify some wolves.

G20, G8, Davos, et. al- I was waiting for a new currency. Just a bunch of Global Elites gallivanting all over the globe throughout the year with nothing to prove accept a few failed governments across the planet.

Mid-Term Elections– What a huge waste of time.

Nudy Scanners- TSA Groping- Opt out Day– The threat that people would have to show their jubblies to the whole TSA (world) didn’t set people off. People were stupid enough to just go through the nudy scanner. It wasn’t until people caught wind that if you chose ‘to not to’ that you would be molested by TSA (government) Agents. This set a few people off. Those who were quick to dawn their Americana Costumes and scribble Pro-America slogans onto cardboard at Beck’s rally, were dually ready to throw down with DHS/TSA on Turkey Day. “Opt Out!” was the rally cry. Force TSA to grope you and slow down travel. No one did it, and no one cared. America went back to sheeple status…

Cop16 Cancun– By now the only ones who pay attention to the Meeting of the Parties (of the Kyoto Protocol) are college students who have recently come down with Glaucoma (medical marijuana Rx’s) and those of us who think the New World Order uses these meetings to decide the fate of the peons. In the end, both groups who follow are left clueless. Either the plans are not made at all or they are and we’re too peon to know anyway.

Wikileaks- My Favorite story. It was dynamic and pointless. It took the attention off the Gulf Coast of the US, the floods of Tennessee, the Volcano Eruptions all over the world this year, the QE 2, the Jobless numbers, the tax hike and every piece of real news that mattered that we were too lazy or too tired to pay attention to this year! Way to go. This proves sex still sells and that in the end the American people will continue to submit to the slave state and not think twice. Bravo…whoever came up with this fauxnews!

I see the folks at JibJab captured the sentiment of this post!

Normal Crazy or Crazy Normal?

Just the Facts…

The News isn’t just News anymore. Most of the time what you see on television or read on the internet is carefully orchestrated distribution of bias, dogma, and mind control. This site was birthed because MSM (Main Stream Media) does not report all the news or a conservative view point. I remember the day that my gaze turned to Cable News, it was September 11, 2001. When the World Trade Center was hit, the second time, by terrorists and the world was in chaos over how many attacks there would be by the end of the day. I recall fishing through the various Cable News Networks. If Fox News stopped covering the WTC attack, I would switch to CNN, MSNBC I even watched Headline News! I fanned across internet sites; now not just the news mega giants but anyone else who saw this coming, Jihad Watch, Atlas Shrugs, MEMRI, various Christian sites: Olive Tree Views, Worldview w/Brannon Howse. I was scouring for information. When I started my search I began to realize that there is a lot out there in the way of real information, crazy paranoid information, and fluffy puffy stuff. It was a matter to discern my way through all that, go back to what the Bible already Tells me is going to happen and then make sense of what is going on out there in this crazy world.

It’s not all News

The hardest topic for me to cover is not Terrorists, Earthquakes, War, bombs, political takeovers, New World Order Agendas, Evil policy making, in the end the most grievous of all topics to cover is the APOSTASY of the Church. The great falling away of the body of Christ. When the light goes out and the salt has lost it’s flavor what is a girl to do? The only thing I can do, and the only thing I would ever recommend anyone do is, Look up! Not look up and ignore what is going on, Look to Jesus Christ for the answers. Look to the Word of God,your Abba in Heaven that created the Heavens and the Earth, and find solace in the Peace of Christ Jesus who already warned us of all these crazy things that are happening on this earth. It’s one thing for the ‘World’ not to believe (John 15) but when ‘the body’ (of Christ) stops believing, my soul writhes in mourning. I see many who rather believe in the Mayan Calendar than in the GOD who created them. I see many who believe that all ‘this’ is NORMAL CRAZY, and it’s not pointing to the Judgment coming upon this earth. So if you are CRAZY (thinking that Jesus is coming again just like He said He would) then you’re NORMAL to me. And you’ll at least be willing to hear what I have to say.
