A Tribute Never Equal to the Debt They Are Owed

“Today, we gather to honor those who gave everything to preserve our way of life. The men and women we honor here served for liberty. They sacrificed for liberty. And in countless acts of courage, they died for liberty. From faraway lands, they were returned to cemeteries like this one, where broken hearts received their broken bodies — they found peace beneath the white headstones in the land they fought to defend.
… The men and women of American armed forces perform extraordinary acts of heroism every single day. Like the nation they serve, they do not glory in the devastation of war. They also do not flinch from combat when liberty and justice are embattled. Ronald Tucker, Nathan Hardy and Mike Koch make clear, they do not waver — even in the face of danger.
And so today, here in Washington and across our country, we pay tribute to all who have fallen — a tribute never equal to the debt they are owed. We will forever honor their memories. We will forever search for their comrades, the POWs and MIAs. And we pledge — we offer a solemn pledge to persevere and to provide the security for our citizens and secure the peace for which they fought.
The soil of Arlington and other sites is filled with liberty’s defenders. It is nourished by their heroism. It is watered by the silent tears of the mothers and fathers, and husbands and wives, and sons and daughters they left behind. Today we pray for God’s blessing on all who grieve and ask the Almighty to strengthen and comfort them today and everyday.

On this Memorial Day, I stand before you as the Commander-in-Chief and try to tell you how proud I am at the sacrifice and service of the men and women who wear our uniform. They’re an awesome bunch of people and the United States is blessed to have such citizens.
I am humbled by those who have made the ultimate sacrifice that allow a free civilization to endure and flourish. It only remains for us, the heirs of their legacy, to have the courage and the character to follow their lead — and to preserve America as the greatest nation on earth and the last best hope for mankind.
May God bless you and may God bless America.”

America’s Good vs. Evil & Truth vs. Lies

“In our current situation, very clear lines are being drawn. There is a line between good and evil, a line between truth and lies, and a line between God’s agenda and the agenda of hell. It is critical that we fast and pray and make a resolute decision to side with the Lord. We must be diligent about asking the Lord to search our hearts and determine to let go of everything that does not align with His purpose and plan in this hour. This is not about our human opinions, it’s about us being completely aligned with God’s heart, will, and intention for the United States and really, for the entire world.”

We Want a Righteous Invasion of Truth

‘R.I.O.T.’ Lyrics (2007)
Written by: Carmelo ‘Carman’ Domenic Licciardello & Tommy L. Sims
 
“Webster’s dictionary say a riot is like an unrestrained
Uproar in a public place, turbulent right in your face
With the facts we’re gonna spread God’s Word
And attack every lie you’ve heard

Like the doctrines of men that are still fallen prey
To the silvery sword of God’s Word today
It’s true, we look to Heaven and our mansions in the sky
And it’s true we’ve got the gaze of Eternity in our eyes

But before this Church is raptured
There’s no way we’re gonna leave here quiet
We want a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Jesus, we’re gonna see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Righteous, to conform to the Bible
Invasion an armed attack
Of truth, the real state of affairs
Like a church on the move that will not double back

From the fight, ’cause we’re salt and light
And we thrive on Jesus, the theme of our lives
And here’s the spin
Love nothin’ but God, hate nothin’ but sin

It’s true, now’s the time to win nations for the Lord
And it’s true, now’s an hour, the saints must go to war
We’ll preach it, we’ll sing it, we’ll shout it, we’ll cry it
‘Cause desperate times need desperate action
And that means we need a R.I.O.T.

Satan is a madman, a relentless entity
He’s the source of every plague known to the human family
We understand the mortal conflict in which we are engaged
And the gates of Hell come crashing down
When the saints of God begin to praise

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Jesus, we’re gonna see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.”

Jesus, we’re callin’ on Your name
Oh, Jesus, we need to see a change
Jesus, we’re taking on Goliath
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, Jesus
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

Jesus, Jesus
With a Righteous Invasion Of Truth
We want a R.I.O.T.

In America, Again

‘America Again’ Lyrics
Written by: Carmelo ‘Carman’ Domenic Licciardello & Michael Omartian
 
“George Washington, Thomas Jefferson
Samuel Adams, First Chief Justice John Jay
Names synonymous with the spirit of our country
Founding fathers of the U.S.A.

Over 200 years ago they shook off the chains of tyranny from Great Britain by divine call
Citing 27 Biblical violations they wrote the Declaration of Independence
With liberty and justice for all

But something happened since Jefferson called the Bible the cornerstone
For American liberty then put it in our schools as a light
Or since “Give me liberty or give me death”, Patrick Henry said
Our country was founded on the Gospel of Jesus Christ

We eliminated God from the equation of American life
Thus eliminating the reason this nation first began
From beyond the grave I hear the voices of our founding fathers plead
You need God in America again

Of the 55 men who formed the Constitution
Fifty-two were active members of their church
Founding fathers like Noah Webster who wrote the first dictionary
Could literally quote the Bible chapter and verse

James Madison said, “We’ve staked our future on our ability to follow
The Ten Commandments with all our heart”
These men believed you couldn’t even call yourself an American
If you subvert the Word of God

In his farewell address, Washington said, “You can’t have
National morality apart from religious principle,” and it’s true
‘Cause right now we have nearly 150,000 kids carrying guns
To these war zones we call public schools

In the ’40’s and ’50’s student problems were chewing gum and talking
In the ’90’s, rape and murder are the trend
The only way this nation can even hope to last this decade
Is to put God in America again

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for America is Him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say,
“We need God in America again.”

Abe Lincoln said, “The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation
Will be the philosophy of the government of the next”
So when you eliminate the Word of God from the classroom and politics
You eliminate the nation that Word protects
America is now number one in teen pregnancy and violent crime
Number one in illiteracy, drug use and divorce
Every day a new holocaust of 5,000 unborn die
While pornography flood our streets like open sewers

America’s dead and dying hand is on the threshold of the Church
While the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah vex us all
When it gets to the point where people would rather come out of the closet than clean it
It’s the sign that the judgement of God is gonna fall

If there’s ever been a time to rise up Church, it’s now
And as the blood bought saints of the living God proclaim
That it’s time to send the alarm from the Church house to The White House
And say, “We want God in America again”

I believe it’s time America to stand up and proclaim
That one nation under God is our demand
And send this evil lifestyle back to Satan where it came from
And let the Word of God revive our dying land

For Jesus Christ is coming back again in all His glory
And every eye shall see Him on that day
That’s why a new anointing of God’s power’s coming on us
To boldly tell the world you must be saved

Because astrology won’t save you, your horoscope won’t save you
The Bible says these things are all farce
If you’re born again you don’t need to look to the stars for your answers
‘Cause you can look to the very One who made those stars

History tells us time and time again
To live like there’s no God makes you a fool
If you want to see kids live right
Stop handing out condoms and start handing out the Word of God in schools

The only hope for America is Jesus
The only hope for America is Him
If we repent of our ways stand firm and say,
“We need God in America again.”

(repeat)

We need God in America
God in America
God in America again”

A Nation Under God or A Nation Gone Under?

“Without God, there is no virtue, because there is no prompting of the conscience … without God, there is a coarsening of the society; without God, democracy will not and cannot endure … if we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”

Our Bill of Rights, America

“The Bill of Rights is the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. It spells out Americans’ rights in relation to their government. It guarantees civil rights and liberties to the individual—like freedom of speech, press, and religion. It sets rules for due process of law and reserves all powers not delegated to the Federal Government to the people or the States. And it specifies that “the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.””

The amendment provides no new powers or rights to the states, but rather preserves their authority in all matters not specifically granted to the federal government.”

The Robbery of the Wicked Shall Destroy Them

“21 The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever He will.

2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts.

3 To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

4 An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.

5 The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.

6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

7 The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to do judgment.

8 The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right.

9 It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.”

When Justice is Done, It Is a Joy to the Righteous, But to the Evildoers it is Disaster (for They Fall Into Their Own Traps)

align=”center”
The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the Lord;
He turns it whichever way He wishes.
2 Every man’s way is right in his own eyes,
But the Lord weighs and examines the hearts [of people and their motives].
3 To do righteousness and justice
Is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice [for wrongs repeatedly committed].
4 Haughty and arrogant eyes and a proud heart,
The lamp of the wicked [their self-centered pride], is sin [in the eyes of God].
5 The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance and advantage,
But everyone who acts in haste comes surely to poverty.
6 Acquiring treasures by a lying tongue
Is a fleeting vapor, the seeking and pursuit of death.
7 The violence of the wicked will [return to them and] drag them away [like fish caught in a net],
Because they refuse to act with justice.
8 The way of the guilty is [exceedingly] crooked,
But as for the pure, his conduct is upright.
10 The soul of the wicked desires evil [like an addictive substance];
His neighbor finds no compassion in his eyes.
11 When the scoffer is punished, the naive [observes the lesson and] becomes wise;
But when the wise and teachable person is instructed, he receives knowledge.
12 The righteous one keeps an eye on the house of the wicked—
How the wicked are cast down to ruin.
15 When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous (the upright, the one in right standing with God),
But to the evildoers it is disaster.
16 A man who wanders from the way of understanding (godly wisdom)
Will remain in the assembly of the dead.
17 He who loves [only selfish] pleasure will become a poor man;
He who loves and is devoted to [a]wine and [olive] oil will not become rich.
18 The wicked become a ransom for the righteous,
And the treacherous in the place of the upright [for they fall into their own traps].
20 There is precious treasure and oil in the house of the wise [who prepare for the future],
But a short-sighted and foolish man swallows it up and wastes it.
21 He who earnestly seeks righteousness and loyalty
Finds life, righteousness, and honor.
22 A wise man scales the city [walls] of the mighty
And brings down the stronghold in which they trust.
23 He who guards his mouth and his tongue
Guards himself from troubles.
24 “Proud,” “Haughty,” “Scoffer,” are his names
Who acts with overbearing and insolent pride.
25 The desire of the lazy kills him,
For his hands refuse to labor;
26 He craves all the day long [and does no work],
But the righteous [willingly] gives and does not withhold [what he has].
27 The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable and offensive [to the Lord].
How much more [unacceptable and insulting can it be] when he brings it with evil intention?
28 A false witness will perish,
But a man who listens to the truth will speak forever and go unchallenged.
29 A wicked man puts on a bold face,
But as for the upright, he considers, directs, and establishes his way [with the confidence of integrity].
30 There is no [human] wisdom or understanding
Or counsel [that can prevail] against the Lord.
31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle,
But deliverance and victory belong to the Lord.
~ Proverbs 21:1-8, 10-12, 15-18 Amplified Version

America: Fighting for Something You Believe In

 

“My experience is that if you’re fighting for something you believe in—even if it means alienating some people along the way—things usually work out for the best in the end.

Our USA is a Constitutional Republic!

“Contrary to catchy slogans, memes and other slick forms of electioneering, the government of the United States was never intended to be a pure democracy. In fact, most of the institutions today’s activists complain about were designed to thwart the pernicious effects of too much democracy. They’re anti-democratic by design. Rather than flaws that require remedy, these institutions were (and are) essential safeguards for individual liberty.”

Putting America First

“In foreign affairs, we are renewing this founding principle of sovereignty. Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens – to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values. As President of the United States, I will always put America first … We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism… I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down… and under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs … The nation-state remains the true foundation of happiness and harmony.”

we realized it wasn’t a local thing.
You could really feel the states become united. We became the United States of America.”

Proponents of Socialism: Gaining Power Via the Dependency, Disintegration, Decay, & Death of People

“We must remember that nations that choose socialism suffer the slow and agonizing
death of moral and cultural decay and disintegration. Why?
Because the high priests of socialism who offer the temptations of statist programs and benefits
aren’t seeking the welfare of their people. Socialism at its heart is atheistic and has no moral compass.
Its lifeblood is power—power gained through dependency, and
once dependency is accomplished, socialism becomes the great destroyer!
It destroys:
Wealth
Dignity
Faith
Family
Freedom
We cannot allow our beloved nation to go down the path of totalitarian states.”
~ Frank Wright, PH.D.,
President & CEO – D. James Kennedy Ministries

Equal Upon Principle

“I should like to know if, taking this old Declaration of Independence,

~ Abraham Lincoln,
Lawyer & 16th President of the United States
