MARA President Speaks Out on LT Gov's Reversal on Same Sex Marriage


Mary Lou Daxland, President of the Massachusetts Republican Assembly (MARA)
According to the Boston Globe, a leading conservative voice in Massachusetts politics, Mary Lou Daxland of the Massachusetts Republican Assembly, expressed her displeasure with the decision by Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, who once led the fight against gay marriage in Massachusetts,  to officiate at a gay wedding for Senate President Stanley Rosenberg, who is marrying his long time domestic partner in NorthHampton, MA  later this month. 

Daxland, who leads an organization of dedicated conservative activists,  stated: “It is mind boggling to me…This is an issue that you can’t flip flop easily on”

“It is a principle, early in life, and  you don’t waffle on it”.

Well apparently she did after GLBT groups publicly voiced their concerns about Polito’s sincerity to support issues that have historically been opposed by those on the right who support traditional moral values, as Politio once did, but rejected when pressured by Governor Baker, who has gone out of his way to support the radical liberal agenda of the Democrat party during the short time he has been in office.

“It is one thing to say I am for gay marriage”, it’s quite another to go and officiate at one”, Daxland said. “I don’t know what is in her head”.

According to the same article: “Another assembly board member accused Polito of switching her positions for political gain by catering to socially liberal groups that could advance her public career”

“It is the politically expedient thing for Karen Polito to do” said Ron Beaty, a former GOP State Senate candidate from West Barnstable.

The news has occurred during the holiest week of the year for Christians when emotions over traditional marriage and fear that they are losing the Culture War, has been at a fever pitch among social conservatives nation wide following the signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by Indiana Governor Mike Pense.

Those on the left believe the RFRA is nothing more than a veiled license to discriminate against proponents of same sex marriage, while most conservatives see it as simply a needed protection for the constitutionally mandated right to the free exercise of their religious rights, which they believe come from God and are under constant and severe attack these days by intolerant and bigoted, anti-christian  homosexual activists on the left and the mainstream media.

The Jazz Patriot believes it is even worse than that with the news that the top two officials in the State of Massachusetts have now chimed in with the growing chorus of support for same sex marriage and sexual practices referred to in the Bible as “an abomination” to God and the results of God turning man over to a reprobate mind, but it is actually an effort to strike a final blow to what little influence Christianity now has over a culture that has been dominated by Christian values since our forefathers landed at Plymouth Rock and the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and put the protection of religious rights first and foremost in the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution.

Destroying Christianity is the Real Agenda Behind the cries of discrimination

Destroying Christianity is the Real Agenda behind the cries of discrimination


The liberal Media is going nuts over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that was signed into Law Thursday by Indiana Governor Mike Pense because they say the law is a license to discriminate against gay people. It doesn’t seem to matter to them that the Supreme Court has ruled otherwise in the Hobby Lobby Case and that Indiana is the 20th state to have such a law. Nor does it matter to celebrities like Miley Cyrus, or Ashton Kushner, who have weighed in and said this is wrong.

Wait a minute. Did I say Miley Cyrus said this is wrong? Well…that changes everything, doesn’t it?

NOT!

In my opinion the GLBT community has an agenda to end the influence Christianity has had on the country since it’s founding and that is the real story behind their supposed concerns for discrimination against gays. And that is why the liberal media sees this as an opportunity to further advance their anti-Christian agenda.

If destroying Christianity wasn’t their real agenda there would be no need for states to have religious liberty laws, when our religious liberties are already protected in the U.S. Constitution.

If destroying Christianity wasn’t their real agenda there would be no need to charge traditional Christians with accusations of discrimination and bigotry, when the gay community is winning everywhere and America is no longer the Christian nation it was intended to be by both the forefathers who landed at Plymouth Rock and the founding fathers at Philadelphia who pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor when signing the Declaration of Independence “with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence from their creator, who they believed endowed them with certain unalienable rights including “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”

And if lunging the final spear into the last vestiges of a Christian culture in America  wasn’t the real agenda behind the cries of discrimination then: A gay couple, for example, who wants a wedding cake would not really have to go to a bakery that they know is run by devout Christians to purchase their cake. There are bakeries all  over this land run by people who are indifferent towards this issue who would be glad to have their business. But that is not good enough for these intolerant, bigoted homosexual activists.

Modern day Christians are so ignorant of the Bible, thanks to the ongoing secularization of our culture,  that I bet only 1 in 100, no make that a thousand,  could even recite from memory any verse that states God’s opinion on the subject as they probably could during the years leading up to the American Revolution.    But here is one from the Apostle Paul who under inspiration of the Holy Spirit in I Corinthians 6:9 says:

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

And BTW this is not an obscure passage written for Old Testament Jews living under the law of Moses. It was written for “believers” today by Paul, and is still applicable today for the “Body of Christ” which Paul refers to as the Church.

Some of us really believe that which is not to say that we do not care for homosexuals any more than we wish harm for any who are enslaved by any of the sinful habits listed by Paul. If that were not true God the creator of the universe would not have come to the earth in the person of Jesus Christ and died for our sins whether we be straight or gay, drunk or sober, saint or sinner. God loves us all which is the real message we should be focusing on this Easter season.  

Not whether we should allow a relatively small but intolerant group of people strip away the last signs that true Christianity still exists in this once blessed country.

But we should be courageous and honest in sharing our faith and attempting to live a life that is pleasing to God, no matter what the consequences, and we should be protected by our courts when we choose to do so, as the founders intended.

Would a Muslim baker be accused of discrimination if he refused to place two men on top of a wedding cake? Well either should the Christian. Or the Christian photographer who refuses to take a photo at a modern art exhibit showing Christ in a jar of urine? Or the Christian musician who refuses to perform ganster rap where every other word is the F word.

I hope you're starting to get the point.

The Right to Vote Includes the Right Not to Vote


Staying home on election day has always been a time honored tradition and cherished right when one feels disappointed or alienated from the process in which we select those who represent us at all levels of government, whether it be local, state, or federal.

As a conservative republican living on the Massachusetts’ South Coast I am forced to exercise that right frequently.

But President Obama made it clear in March at a town hall meeting in Cleveland, during what appeared to be a spontaneous totalitarian rant off teleprompter, that he does not consider this a right and believes very strongly that Soviet style voting laws forcing Americans to vote under threat of legal penalty would help transform America, and I certainly don’t disagree with that.

He already is forcing everyone to purchase healthcare even when they don’t want it. Now he wants to force them to vote, even when the names on the ballot are repugnant to them, as the names, Martha Coakley and Charlie Baker were to me in 2014, because of their support of amnesty for illegal immigrants, same sex marriage, and the continuation of legalized bloodbath called abortion, which so far has resulted in the senseless murder of 55 million developing babies. And Baker was even a member of my own Republican party, at least that is what is implied when a candidate has an R beside his name. 

In full disclosure, I will admit I voted for the candidate of my party in the general election, not the primary,  but I held my nose while entering the voting booth. Many others stayed home or voted for a candidate who had no chance at all of winning. That was their choice and right. Now our President would like to take that right away.

What is interesting is that the President and most Democrats in Washington, as well as in Massachusetts, have opposed laws that would require voters to produce some sort of identification at the polls, in an effort to prevent fraud on the grounds it would infringe on their rights and liberties. Now he wants to force everyone to vote, whether they want to or not, which is just one step away from mandating how they should vote.

And that could happen with one stroke of his mighty presidential pen, which has been busy as of late.

But the president knows he only has to offer free cellphones or other “goodies“ like say tax refunds for those who don’t pay taxes, or blanket amnesty to illegal immigrants leading to US citizenship to get large constituencies voting for Democrat politicians forever and a day.

 “It would be transformative if everybody voted” the President said only 5 months from the day the Democrat party endured another landslide defeat in an off year election.

“That would counteract money more than anything”, referring to campaign money and the Citizens United decision, in which the US Supreme Court allowed corperation’s to contribute to political campaigns, as a way to exercise their free speech. The President apparently still hasn’t recovered from that decision, and Justice Samuel Alito is probably still shaking his head, as he did during the State of the Union speech when the President publicly chastised the justices for having an opinion that differs from his.

And finally: “If everybody voted, then it would completely change the political map in the country”.

Yes, it would Mr President and it would also deny us our constitutional right to express our opinion through the voting process, which by-the-way also includes not voting for candidates when there is no one on the ballot who shares our world view or that we trust.

What's Really Happening in Ferguson?

John Cardillo discusses who the players are behind the scenes in Fergusson, MO that are fanning the flames there. People need to know what is going on, who the anti-American groups that are busing people there, and who is paying for it. Did you know that there is also an Islamic connection that might possibly involve ISIS eventually? This video is a good place to start educating yourself on this very dangerous situation, that threatens the entire country, because the mainstream media is not reporting this story.

John Kerry, Iran, and Nukes


(updated 2/26/ 2015 @ 9:01 AM) Have you noticed that the closer Secretary of State John Kerry gets to reaching “an historic deal” with Iran that would give the Islamic Republic and longtime sponsor of State Terrorism an opportunity to  unleash a “nuclear winter” on both Israel and the United States, the more snow lands in Boston where he lives, breaking all previous recorded records of snow levels?.  

Coincidence?

Maybe not.

I know I’m not suppose to mention God or bring the Bible into any discussion about politics  but in this country the first amendment to the US Constitution says I can, so I will.

You see, God has this thing about Israel, so what are you going to do?

He gave the land of Israel, which use to be inhabited by the ancient “Cananites” to the Jews and he doesn’t like it when anyone tries to take any part of “the holy land”and give it to someone else, like…say…those pesky Palestinians.

That is just the way it is. He is a holy,  Sovereign God, and he does what he wants.

And God is also very good at sending celestial warning shots across the bow in the form of natural disasters when any of his created beings, does things that displease him like betraying Israel, or putting pressure on Israel to give away the land that God promised the descendants of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. (Genesis 12: 1 -3), like say hurricanes, perfect storms, nuclear catastrophes, meteror showers, hailstorms, or the kind of non stop snowstorms and snow hurricanes Boston has enjoyed this winter, or even wars or terrorist attacks on his own people, who won't acknowledge that God gave Israel to the Jews, by some of the most evil, head de-capitating people you can imagine.

Well I know it sounds crazy, but it is something to think about. Don’t you think?

There are several verses in the Bible that promise the land of Israel that was once occupied by several pagan groups of people to the Jews in an everlasting covenant now and into eternity. Although God drove the Jews out of Israel in 70 AD following their rejection of their Messiah, in a world wide dispersion, he began bringing them back in the last century, as foretold in scripture.

Genesis 12:3 promises a blessing to all who bless Israel and a curse to those who curse it.

The United States, who many recent students of Biblical prophecy believe is the end times nation referred to in the Bible as the daughter of Babylon and sometimes just Babylon, has been the only real defender of Israel since 1948, when Israel became a nation again, and has been greatly blessed by God for that, despite changing from that nation that recognized God in its founding documents to one that is turning away from Him in it's government polices, entertainment, and family life, at a speed that is mind boggling to say the least.

During that time America has increased in population growth by 1500%. GDP has grown from $1 Trillion to $15.6 trillion as of 2012.

During the last 20 years, however, starting with President George H W Bush a trend began of pressuring Israel to give up "land for peace"

In Genesis 15:18, God told Israel "To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great rive, the Euphrates", which by the way is a much larger region than the postage stamp size nation it is today. (Developing)

It is very important to understand that God told Israel not to give up or exchange any of Israel's land with other nations. God provides only one way that Israel is to divide the land that he gave to Israel:

"So you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Israel" (Ezekiel 47:21)

But what about dividing the land or exchanging the land with others.

"They must not sell or exchange any of it. This is the best of the land and must not pass into the other hands, because it is holy to the Lord (Exekiel 48: 14)

Will MBTA's problems kill chances for completion of South Coast Rail Project


Updated on 2/24/2015 @ 12:39 PM

NEW BEDFORD--- As we wait with bated breath for the restoration of Commuter Rail Services  connecting the cities of New Bedford, Fall River, and Taunton with Boston, new concerns about whether our dreams will ever become reality in the aftermath of the recent implosion at the MBTA following the T’s problems with non stop record breaking snowstorms, and a very frustrated commuting public that is unable to depend on them anymore to operate reliably on even the most basic streamlined schedule, so they can get back and forth from work on time and make all their appointments as scheduled..

One wonders if the last thing the MBTA needs, after being forced to shut down service when service was most needed, is a $2 billion rail service to the South Coast that the State survived without for over 60 years amid a political firestorm of blame fixing and back stabbing, much of it coming from our new governor Charlie Baker, who has been pointedly critical of the MBTA and Keolis, the private company that operates the service, which many now believe is in way over their head.

According to an article  in the Standard Times by Steve Urbon entitled “What does MBTA fiasco mean for South Coast Rail, the Governor’s office is denying there has been any change in their plan to get the long  sought controversial and costly project up and running.

In the same article State Rep Bill Strauss D-Mattapoisett, who is House Chairman of the Joint Transportation Committee and New Bedford’s Mayor, Jon Mitchell are optimistic that the MBTA’s problems can be worked out.

Republican State Senator Bruce Tarr, the minority leader in the Senate from Gloucester, on the other hand has filed legislation which will require more accountability and oversight over the MBTA’s presently out of control finances and long range financial plans which may not be encouraging news for supporters of the South Coast Rail Project, which by the way has historically  encountered huge resistance from legislators, as well as tax payers, who live North of Route 128 and have little sympathy for the plight of those who live in this region, at least that is the way it seems to us.

State Senator Mark Montigney, D-New Bedford was reported in the Standard Times article to have said: “At least these people have a computer rail line to complain about “. He was also said to be focused on the complex political realities the MBTA is facing before they can get the improvements it needs moving forward and stated he had had it with endless lip service and broken promises.

“The good news is that in anything going forward on fixing the system, the Boston reps and senators will not have the support without alliances on the outside.”, Montigney said

Additionally I have to wonder if Governor Baker has even read the Corridor Plan which was put forward by the Patrick Administration and understands the real agenda behind it, which appears to have more to do,  in my opinion, with setting up a socialist utopia, conceived by bicycle riding environmental wackos, than with re- establishing long needed train service from the economically depressed South Coast area of the State.

All you have to do is read the opening paragraph of the Corridor Plan Report and you can see that.

So after studying the Corridor Plan Report I have come to the conclusions that this is much, much, more than a simple plan to restore commuter rail service to the region. It is filled with all the “ “sustainable development” and “smart growth” code words associated with the  1992 United Nations Agenda 21 plan not to mention an array of questionable and costly projects listed under the heading of South Coast Rail but nowhere near the railroad tracks or proposed train stations the train will be travelling  through, and that is not counting the $ 42, 000, 000 recently approved by the State for bridge repair.  

One can only wonder what projects will be coming next to encourage commuters to abandon their fossil fuel dependent cars and move next to the tracks stacked and packed like rats the way the architects of the Agenda 21 scheme envisioned from the very beginning in the name of social justice and under the guise of saving the environment, all the while grabbing property unconstitutionally, as they did with the Community Preservation Act (CPA) that New Bedford voters accepted last November.

Well now that we have a Republican Governor I’m sure he’ll get these costs under control. Wait a minute…wasn’t Charlie Baker part of the group that ran huge cost over-runs on the Big Dig fiasco in Boston years ago. And wasn’t he the one, who Jack Spillane of the Standard Times reported was the chief architect of the project during it’s peak construction years, and isn’t he filling his administration with Democrat political operatives associated with other big spending administrations?

Well at least we know if things get our of hand, we know we can count on the MBTA to get the trains running again,

NOT!
