A Thanksgiving Prayer
Our Father, giver of life and joy, who is like you, Oh Lord, that we should come to you with our praise? You need not these words, for you formed our lips. What is man that you are mindful of him? You own the lives of all that inhabit the earth.
Your power, might, and love are seen in the bounty of this season. We gather this day around a table laden with food that you have brought forth. We gather as family and friends whom you brought into this world. We bow before you with humble hearts knowing we live because you brought us to life.
We celebrate this day as a nation of people who have been blessed more than any other people on the face of the earth and at any time. We acknowledge you as the giver of the good we so easily take for granted. Forgive us as we are a forgetful people. Grant us on this Thanksgiving Day, the time to reflect on all the ways you have blessed each of us who has gathered. Increase our understanding of your ways, defeat us when we use our blessings for selfish gain, and remind us to love one another.
Thank you for providing all that we need for life and godliness. Make us to be a light and a blessing to the nations of the world. We acknowledge you as the only true and living God. AMEN

‘MUSLIM-FREE ZONE’: GUN-SHOP OWNER WINS CASE
Florida business gained national attention after terror attack
BOB UNRUH About
Andy Hallinan of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, Florida, on his YouTube video declaring his store to be a “Muslim-free zone.”
Andy Hallinan of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, Florida, on his YouTube video declaring his store to be a “Muslim-free zone.”
A lawsuit filed by a Muslim activist organization against a Florida firearms retailer who posted a “Muslim Free Zone” sign has been dismissed and the case ordered closed because the statement was protected by the First Amendment and the activists couldn’t show they were injured. The decision was released by U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom in a case brought by a local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations against Florida Gun Supply, which was defended by officials with the American Freedom Law Center.
AFLC Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi said, “This dismissal was yet another AFLC victory against CAIR and its jihadi lawfare against patriotic Americans across the country. This victory follows on the heels of a recent victory against CAIR in a Michigan federal court where CAIR’s subpoenas were quashed and CAIR’s nefarious client sanctioned for abusive practices.”
“ISIS Exposed: Beheadings, Slavery, and the Hellish Reality of Radical Islam” is veteran investigative reporter Erick Stakelbeck’s story of the true motivations, inner workings and future plans the new caliphate
He continued, “CAIR was born from a jihadi terrorist conspiracy, and it has done little to distance itself from those bona fides. CAIR is on notice: if you attempt to use the courts to conduct your civilizational jihad, AFLC will be there to defend law-abiding, patriotic Americans and our nation’s national security. We will match and defeat your civilization jihad with our constitutional lawfare in every courtroom across the nation.” CAIR Florida had filed the action against Florida Gun Supply in July after its owner declared in a YouTube video his retail store is a “Muslim Free Zone.”
The Books of Julio Lara – His Personal Experiencing Marxism First Hand, Julio is now trying to educate America on what is coming if we do not turn things around.Julio saw Marxism creep into Cuba and Venezuela, he now see’s it happening in America, experience is a great teacher, America should learn from it.
Dear patriot, I need your help to continue teaching the Americans how to fight communism and socialism. That is why I have written four books with that purpose, and I need you spread the news to all your contacts so we can win the next election.
All the following of Lara’s books are based on his experience and knowledge of Marxism, to which he belonged, and then has dedicated his life since 1960 to combat that wrong and evil ideology. His books can help you to know how to defend yourself against Marxism brainwashing that today is using several different names, with the intent to subjugate the world. Julio’s writings represent his hard works to teach friends like you on how cruel and evil this ideology is. He thinks people with such knowledge can’t be manipulated and indoctrinated by the media that they control.
In American Apocalypse, Julio Lara exposes the sordid past and the evil ideology of communism and how it is creeping into American society. Lara uncovers the truth about the realBarack Obama and the rise of the New World Order (NWO). He reveals the factual histories of Adolph Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Che Guevara and Fidel Castro. Apocalypsehas been named as one of the best first person authored books about the devastating price of allowing communism’s criminal immorality to take over America.
God, Satan, and Me is Lara’s true story that takes the reader into the mountains and jungles of Cuba to experience what it was like for a seventeen year old boy to be assigned to fight next to Che Guevara in Castro’s revolution. The communist government took over Cuba and even the ranch owned by the author’s father. Betrayed by those he had fought beside, Lara, then a captain at 18-years, rebelled against Castro, and, during his worst days, was hunted, wounded and forced to flee for his life to South America.
Lara’s third book – The Manual. . . How to live in a Socialist Countryshows what changes one must make to survive under socialism: a life far different from living in under the freedom of capitalism. The Manualexplains how a citizen (regardless of wealth or position) can deal with increasing regulations and shortages that are a basic part of a “classless” society. The author tells how he was forced to endure his years under socialism in Venezuela and Cuba. An unaware America could soon be transformed into that same ideology.
Lara’s latest book, The Manifesto . . . How to Save America, is aimed at those who still prefer America’s freedoms to the evils of socialism. The author tells how to destroy what Michael Medved has named as the “Poison Factory.” Manifesto lists rules, regulations, laws, and actions needed to fire up the determination of conservatives and Christians; especially the younger generation who will bear the cost of indecision. For over three decades Lara has been helped Americans understand how crucial is this last battle.
GOP Hopefuls Hope to Break the ISIS
While the rest of the West hunkers down to shore up their security plans, President Obama has been jet-setting to Asia to talk climate change. Well, the world is heating up all right — but it has nothing to do with greenhouse gas. Regardless, the president seems intent on minimizing the crisis that even his own party seems to recognize. On the hot seat over his plan to flood the U.S. with at least 10,000 Syrians (and who knows how many terrorists hiding among the refugees), the White House’s latest approach seems to be ignoring ISIS into submission.
More than once, reporters have pushed Obama on his almost passive attitude after the Paris attacks. Now, anxious to deflect the criticism, the president is insisting his plan for defeating ISIS is working. (He’ll have a tougher time convincing Americans of that — 83 percent of whom believe a “large-scale terrorist attack” in the U.S. is likely.) Still, the president insisted, “We cannot respond from fear.” We can, however, respond from wisdom and common sense, two things conspicuously absent from the White House’s open-door approach.

Top Democrat: ISIS Threat Has ‘Gotten Worse’ Under Obama’s Policies
“I don’t think the approach is sufficient for the job,” said Feinstein, a top ranking Senate Democrat who serves on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “I’m concerned that we don’t have the time and we don’t have years. We need to be aggressive now.” … “What I’m saying is this has gone on too long now and it has not gotten better, it’s gotten worse,” [Feinstein said].
One key point she makes is that ISIS’ footprint is expanding to countries beyond Syria and Iraq; she cites Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt’s Sinai peninsula. She might have also added Afghanistan. Obama’s former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is also criticizing the president’s hands-off approach, effectively calling for ground troops to beat back the terror army’s advance:
“I think the U.S. has to lead in this effort, because what we’ve learned a long time ago is that if the United States does not lead, nobody else will,” Panetta said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. Panetta also called on the U.S. to commit additional resources to the fight against the radical Islamic terrorist group. He said air strikes will not be enough to slow ISIS’s territorial expansion in Syria. “Look, air strikes are great, you know, we’re hitting some targets, but air strikes alone are not going to win here,” Panetta said. “We’ve got to take that territory away from them,” he added. “It’s been a year. They’re still in Mosul, they’re still in Ramadi, they’re still in Raqqa, those are areas we have to go after in order to be able to defeat ISIS, ultimately.” Read On….

Tulsi Gabbard – a Democrat from Hawaii and member of the Armed Services Committee – demonstrates great knowledge and courage to go against the grain in the US and explain the Syria situation along with Russian and US roles the way it is.
Speaking with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, Tulsi explains why the US allying with Islamist extremists to overthrow Syrian President Assad is an illegal, counterproductive war that will cause even more human misery in the region and help ISIS and other Islamist extremists take over all of Syria. Instead of once again being distracted by trying to get rid of a secular dictator, Tulsi explains, the US must stay out of counter productive wars and focus on defeating the Islamist extremists who have declared war on America.
Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, said the U.S. and Russia are on a collision course over Syria that could result in World War III if not de-escalated.
Wolf Blitzer asked her how that collision could be avoided. Her answer was as follows:
“Very simple. The U.S. and the CIA should stop this illegal and counter-productive war to overthrow the Syrian government of Assad and should stay focused on fighting against who our enemy is, the Islamic extremist groups,” she said. “Because right now we’re seeing why this is counter-productive, by working towards that end, by working toward the overthrow of Assad we are not only strengthening our enemy, the Islamic extremists, who will walk in and take over all of the country Syria, right now they have about half of the country under their control, but it also puts us in that position of a potential direct head to head conflict with Russia which brings us to the brink of a potential larger conflict, a potential World War III situation.”
Gabbard is a member of the House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees and a combat veteran of the Iraq War. She said the U.S. Syrian intervention is illegal because there has never been a vote by Congress to authorize the use of force to overthrow a sovereign government. “So the American people have not had a chance to speak their voice, that hasn’t happened. Therefore it’s illegal,” she said.
Top Aide to Hillary Says Let the Refugees Come – Think about this; voting in many states, no ID required, 10,000 Syrian = 10,000 Democratic votes

It’s a lovefest between top Clinton aide Huma Abedin and the Syrian refugees in Greece we captured on undercover video hoping to get to Germany and US – possibly using fake passports. The Syrian refugees love Clinton and Clinton loves the refugees. So what could possibly go wrong with this scenario?
Arizona Democratic State Senator Carlyle Begay announced Monday he is leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a Republican. Senator Begay is a Navajo Indian and represents an area of Arizona which encompasses the Navajo and Hopi reservations. Begay told the Arizona Republican, “the Republican Party better reflects the values of self-determination and self-empowerment that he holds and wants to emphasize to his district.”
To announce his decision, Begay released a two-minute video entitled “Change Must Happen How” explaining his reasoning. Citing the failing education system, high dropout rate, crumbling infrastructure and unemployment rates “as high as 80 percent” in parts of his district, Begay told constituents he’s found it is the Republican Party who has been willing to work with him to address these issues.
The charismatic Senator acknowledged switching parties will not be a popular decision with some of those he represents but, he says, “My hope is to follow the direction of my ancestors and embrace progress by helping the Republican Party as they build a bridge connecting those who need and want a chance with those who can provide that chance.”
“With an open mind and heart,” Begay concluded, “I clearly see the Republican Party as a party of progress, the party of opportunity, and moving forward — my party.” Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey greeted the news gleefully. “I’m proud to welcome Senator Begay to the Republican Party. Legislative District 7 is well served by Senator Begay’s commitment to individual liberty, fiscal responsibility and personal empowerment. His service to his constituents is unwavering, and I look forward to our continued work together,” he said in a statement.
It’s the little things in life that can make a big difference. Just standing up for your beliefs is one of them and not backing down when confronted by the media and a few loudmouth malcontents. It seemed like a little thing when Rosa Parks decided not to move to the back of the bus.
While not as significant of Rosa Park’s defiance, consider the sign at Schuler’s Bakery on Springfield, Ohio. The big blue sign on the front door includes this notice: This store is politically incorrect. We say Merry Christmas, God bless America, we salute our flag & give thanks to our troops, police officers and firefighters. If this offends you, you are welcome to leave. In God we trust.
Let’s see a million more just like it in every store front!!
If you know anything about international standing in Education – No explanation is required – Others please read below..
The statistics below are from different organizations which do educational standing research, numbers vary, the bottom line; they all show a depressing decrease in educational status for the United States. The Raw facts: Many areas of American life have changed for the better during the past three decades-except, it appears, the K-12 education system. Data from various sources-the SAT, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), and international comparisons such as the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), the Program for international Student Assessment (PISA) -all reveal the same trend: despite 30 years of agitation and reform, student achievement has at best stagnated, if not declined specifically in the areas of Math, Reading, & Science.
U.S. fourth-graders are 11th in the world in math in the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, a separate measure of nations against each other. U.S. eighth-graders ranked ninth in math, according to those 2011 results.
United States ranked 31st in math literacy among 15-year-old students and below the international average.
The math scores of students in Shanghai showed that they are “the equivalent of over two years of formal schooling ahead of those observed in Massachusetts,
Achievement mainly on international test scores released last December show that compared with their peers in Europe, Asia and elsewhere, 15-year-olds in the United States are below average in applying math skills to real-life tasks.
According to PISA the US ranks 30 in Math performance out of 65 countries
(OECD) released its 2012 triennial Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) of 65 global education systems, and it shows that the United States continues to slip in each of the study’s focus areas—reading, math, and science “literacy”—among 15-year-olds.
“While the U.S. spends more per student than most countries, this does not translate into better performance.
In 2013 report, when it comes to math, reading and science, teens in the U.S. rank 36th in the world
The global exam, which was given to 15-year-olds around the world, is considered the worldwide benchmark for education ranking by country. U.S. performance was extremely low, doing average in reading and science and well below average in math. We failed to reach the top 20 in any of the subjects tested.
Education Secretary Arne Duncan says average scores in the U.S. are dragged down by a large number of poor minority students. He would not consider the introduction of; “No Child Left Behind”, “Race To The Top” or “Common Core” all major failures, as possibly being the problem, along with the federal government’s illegal entry in to the control of the education system as being the contributing factors.
The US ranks 24th in Literacy scores, scoring 498 out of 1000
The US ranks 2nd in ignorance
The Us ranks 23 in PISA (Program for International Student Assessment)
This from the company that writes your children’s text books:
According to Pearson, the United States has a “cognitive skills and educational attainment” score of 0.39, which makes the United States rank fourteenth out of forty countries ranked in that category. The top ten countries (and their scores) are:
South Korea (1.30)
Hong Kong (0.96)
United Kingdom (0.67)
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is not getting better, it is getting worse, it is time to get the federal government out of our classrooms, give the states and the local school boards the power to direct our education. If we keep up at the current pace, we will soon become a third world nation with respect to our education standings, we are very close right now!
Obama just does not get it! We are under attack, he could care less! Honestly do you see any urgency in his speeches?
This President is not fit to lead this country, he either does not get the direct threat to America, or he is protecting these animals with some twisted thought they are are just Muslims practicing their “Religion Freedom”. This country along with our allies need to go after these Islamist Terrorist, to annihilate them where they are! To hell with this “Collateral Damage” excuse; that excuse is what took out SEAL TEAM 6 in Afghanistan, it is why we are accomplishing nothing with our bombing raid on ISIS because Obama will not them drop a bomb if there is the slightest possibility that “innocent” (I question Innocent) civilians may be harmed. A total 75% of the planes launched with bombs return fully loaded
Collateral damage is the casualty of war, It is brought on by the enemy not the defenders. How did we win WWII in Germany, we leveled Berlin, the people were collateral damage, but it saved the lives of a lot of American & Allied troops. The Battle of Berlin was launched by Harris in November 1943, a concerted air campaign against the German capital, although other cities continued to be attacked to prevent the Germans concentrating their defences in Berlin. Harris believed this could be the blow that would break German resistance. “It will cost us between 400 and 500 aircraft,” he said. “It will cost Germany the war.”
How did we win the war with Japan, we level two cities, again the people were the Collateral damage, we eventually saved possible million American & Allied military lives, the projected cost to invade the homeland of Japan. On August 8th 1945 The second U.S. atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese coastal city of Nagasaki. Just before midnight on August 9, Japanese Emperor Hirohito convened the supreme war council. After a long, emotional debate, he backed a proposal by Prime Minister Suzuki in which Japan would accept the Potsdam Declaration “ On September 2, 1945 Japan singed an unconditional Surrender.
Collateral damage is part of war, Obama has no concept of this, once the people come under attack, they will start to stand up against these ISIS and Al Qaeda Terrorist, till this is accomplished, America is are going to be the next victim.
President Obama, Pull your head out of the sand; do what is right go and get them! !!

America’s Newsroom co-anchor Bill Hemmer was uncharacteristically opinionated and aggressive after President Barack Obama‘s remarks Monday morning at the G20 Summit over Friday’s French terror attacks. Hemmer — who hosts the late-morning news block on Fox News daily alongside Martha MacCallum — is in Paris, France with continuing coverage of the events, and was the first Fox personality to appear following Obama’s address. Although the coverage was most likely intended for Hemmer to summarize the speech and then toss to Fox’s Bret Baier for his analysis of the President’s news conference, Hemmer clearly editorialized his own views on the address, saying, “If you were waiting to hear a US President say, ‘I feel your pain’ or if you were waiting to hear a US President say, ‘It’s them or us,’ that is not what you just heard.”
Hemmer appeared seething as he continued, “President Obama called the attacks in Paris a ‘setback’ at one point.” Before eventually welcoming in Baier to the conversation, Hemmer, standing with the backdrop of a growing memorial in Paris behind him, concluded: “President Obama has made it quite clear in that Q-and-A that lasted more than 45 minutes that he has accepted there are evils in this world and evils in places like Paris, France and this is something that we all must face today… If you’re at home wondering with your own set of anger and your own set of fears about what can happen next, you are not alone, because that is precisely what you feel here in Paris, France. And if you were awaiting clarification on your feelings through that Q-and-A, you weren’t gonna get it.”
Governors right to buck Obama’s plan for refugees
A Christian apologist is pleased that a number of Republican governors are opposing President Obama’s agenda to bring thousands of Muslim refugees to U.S. soil. Obama is promising to veto a House bill that would create new hurdles for Syrian and Iraqi refugees trying to enter the United States. House Speaker Paul Ryan says while the U.S. always has been a “compassionate nation,” the top priority for lawmakers needs to be to “protect the American people.”
In addition, during a meeting of Republican governors in Las Vegas, several governors – including South Carolina’s Nikki Haley and New Mexico’s Susana Martinez – expressed their concerns about the president’s decision. Christian apologist Alex McFarland says he’s thankful for those governors who are standing up against the president’s plan. “I am thankful [they] have risen up and said to the federal government we will not have our safety and security compromised and our rights taken away by a leftist agenda coming out of Washington,” he tells OneNewsNow.
Some have argued that it’s inconsistent with Christian beliefs as well as bigoted to oppose the refugees to enter the U.S. But McFarland, who is co-host of American Family Radio’s weekday program “Exploring the Word,” explains that Christian compassion doesn’t mean surrender.
“Sadly many people believe that to be a Christian means that we never stand up for our own rights,” he says. “We have to assert ourselves as Americans and say to the federal government … we will not allow our freedoms to be taken away and likely terrorists to be filtered into American communities all over this nation.”
McFarland says if individuals don’t speak the truth and defend America, soon there won’t be an America to defend.
8 Syrians Caught At Texas Border
November 19, 2015
If this wasn’t so serious it would be laughable. How many times do we have to say told you so? Obama is quickly becoming the Baghdad Bob of American politics. Check it out:
UPDATE: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has confirmed that eight Syrians were taken into custody at the Laredo port of entry.
Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrian illegal aliens attempted to enter Texas from Mexico in the Laredo Sector. The federal agents spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity, however, a local president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) confirmed that Laredo Border Patrol agents have been officially contacting the organization with concerns over reports from other federal agents about Syrians illegally entering the country in the Laredo Sector. The reports have caused a stir among the sector’s Border Patrol agents.
The sources claimed that eight Syrians were apprehended on Monday, November 16, 2015. According to the sources, the Syrians were in two separate “family units” and were apprehended at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas, also known officially as Port of Entry 1.
America’s ‘enemies within’: How nearly SEVENTY have been arrested in America over ISIS plots in last 18 months – including refugees who had been given safe haven but ‘turned to terror’
Federal and local law enforcement agencies have made dozens of arrests of men and women suspected of ISIS involvement
Analysis shows that they include refugees who entered the United States as refugees
Increasing pressure from Republicans not to accept refugees from Syria on scale demanded by White House
Ted Cruz plans to introduce legislation forbidding refugee status to Syrian Muslims and moves also under way to defund settling refugees
US authorities have charged at least 66 men and women with ISIS-related terror plots on American soil – including a handful of refugees, Daily Mail Online can reveal. The terror group has set its sights on Washington, D.C. as it vows to further infiltrate the West and ramp up its blood-soaked offensive.
Presidents Obama insists that ‘slamming the door’ on Syrian refugees fleeing ISIS would be a betrayal of American values. But 34 governors are refusing to take in any more, in case jihadi fighters slip into their states and repeat the carnage of Paris. Analysis by Daily Mail Online reveals that a handful of foiled plots have already involved immigrants accused of harboring sympathy for ISIS.
The threat also comes from within, with American teenagers and Islamic converts among those seduced by the group’s torrent of chilling online propaganda. They include a U.S. Air Force veteran accused of waging war on the country he once served and a National Guard soldier who allegedly plotted to gun down his own colleagues. Others are seemingly ordinary American citizens, including a young nurse, a pizza parlor boss and schoolgirls tricked into becoming shrouded ISIS brides.
Some have conspired to travel or send friends abroad to link up with fundamentalist fighters while others have planned for jihad closer to home – with Capitol Hill among the targets for a foiled bombing raid. The incidents detailed here are among dozens of alleged disrupted by police and federal agents since ISIS began to rise from the flames of the Syrian civil war. The earliest arrest was 18 months ago

Wheere are the freedom Loving Muslims, Is there such an entity? Why are they not speaking out about these tragedies?
Commentary from an author unknown
The Muslims in every country have long had chances to get a handle on these radical groups, but refuse to do so. If they are not complicit by their support, then they are complicit by their inaction and failure to fight the radical elements.
It’s time the Muslims stepped up and took care of the problems they either created or allowed to fester within their ranks for centuries.
If you don’t want to fight for your modern life and freedoms, then return to your country of ancestry, give up all the freedom of choice you have and stop tearing down other countries that believe in the freedoms you enjoy.
If you want to immigrate here or be born and live here, accept our way of life. Our way is not perfect. Become productive members of our societies and defend our ways that you or your parents agreed to adopt. Positively add to the journey.
If you choose to do nothing and allow your kin to attempt to tear our societies down, then don’t complain when those societies turn against you.
House to vote this week on bill to ‘pause’ Syrian refugee program
By Scott Wong – 11/17/15 10:32 AM EST
The House is likely to vote this week on legislation to temporarily halt President Obama’s plan to allow thousands of refugees from Syria to resettle in the U.S., Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told lawmakers on Tuesday. “We shouldn’t accept any Syrian refugees without complete assurance those we are welcoming intend us no harm,” Ryan said during a closed-door meeting with rank-and-file Republicans.
Later, in remarks to reporters, Ryan called for a “pause” in the U.S. refugee program until authorities can verify that terrorists are not trying to “infiltrate” the refugee population. “Our nation has always been welcoming, but we cannot let terrorists take advantage of our compassion,” Ryan told reporters. “This is a moment where it’s better to be safe than to be sorry.”
Ryan’s remarks came just days after a string of terrorist attacks in Paris killed about 130 people. A fake passport found by one of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) suicide bombers suggested that he had posed as a Syrian refugee, accessing France through Greece. Those developments fueled worries among Republicans on Capitol Hill about Obama’s proposal to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S. Read On….
Commander in Chief ‘Not Interested’ in ‘Winning’
Just when you thought you’ve heard it all… Hours before Islamic State jihadis killed 129 people in Paris Friday, Barack Obama boasted that his strategy had “contained” the group formerly known as the JV team. Clearly, that self-praise was incredibly ill-timed. Undeterred, at a press conference Monday, he proceeded to utter what might become the defining statement of his atrocious presidency: “What I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership or America winning.”
Let that sink in for a minute. The president of the United States of America — the commander in chief of our Armed Forces — just said he isn’t interested in leading or winning. If Franklin Roosevelt had uttered those words, we’d all be speaking German or Japanese.
Maybe if the commander in chief is too busy (golfing?) to worry about such inconsequential things as leadership and winning, he should retire now instead of making us suffer through another 14 months of his contemptible rein.
