In 1644 Rev. Samuel Rutherford published LEX, REX, The Law & the Prince to demonstrate that the natural law is above the King, Some 364 years later The Invisible Hand Blog is born after a historic election a Reagan Conservative born in the 60's molded in the Reagan years begins this blog to demonstrate the God given Unalienable rights given to every person by God. God bless the truth and let the truth be raised.
Have an Iphone you can blog anywhere, even on Waikiki Beach. The only problem is the grammatical errors that ultimately get into the blog. Yes, I have used my iPhone to blog from Egypt to Waikiki Beach.
This post comes courtesy of a young man who went running to help an elderly man in need, just as the Good Samaritan.
The Good Samaritan teaches many lessons like who are neighbor is . . . anyone you come in contact with. It also teaches how the lines are drawn. What I mean, it shows us jurisdiction, authority, the lines of authority, the lines of jurisdiction.
You are thinking," I do not get it Lex Rex?"
I am not suprised, the President Obama and most of the American People do not get it. The issue is who has the authority in the particular matter. In the case of the Good Samaritan the ones who stepped over the injured person committed no criminal wrong or act, however, those same people that ignored the injured committed a moral wrong.
To get authority, jurisdiction, sovereignty, you must inderstand were all power comes from, you see all power comes from God and He alones delegates and grants jurisdiction. In other words God has transcribed the lines and just like when you are coloring if you stay within the lines you have a beautiful picture. But once you color outside the lines the picture becomes blurred and unrecognizable. This is the state our country, our government, and our president are operating under, outside their jurisdictional authority, outside the lines.
I could go on a discourse on each point Obama and our government are exercising power outside their God given grant, but the one that bothers me the most is Obama's use of morals to espouse a government run health care. You see God has total jurisdiction of the heart not the government and mandating health care and taking away Doctors choice by removing the conscious objection is a prime example Obama does not get it and within the first 200 days. He has shown that he has no regard for any limitations on his authority. That means the U.S. Constitution is not applicable to this Obama administration.
Thirteen miles of original Route 66 Portland concrete that is what you hit after driving through the ghost town of Texola, Oklahoma. The Texas state line and the thump, ka-thump of concrete to the journey. After seeing Texola, a town that looks deserted after Interstate 40 was built to the north of Route 66 and Texola. I immediately think back to a line George Bailey said in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life," this is not exact, "it is the small town people that do the most living and dying.".
George Bailey is right, the small town is the heart of our republic and sometimes eventhough it is America's heart, politicians and especially President Obama ignore and legislate laws and policy that impact or destroy small towns. By getting off the interstate and driving the old Route 66 you see the best in America like family, faith, community and work ethic. I also noticed how many Chrysler, Dodge & jeep dealers are in these small communities along with Ford and Chevrolet. I do not have the Chrysler dealership closing list at hand, but I must assume most of these dealers will close or adapt. The impact of the largest business in a small town closing could eventually turn that town into a ghost town.
This is not a gloom and doom post because one thing about those that call small towns home is that they are rugged individualists that work hard and the super majority will adapt. That is the flip side to the problem of over government intrusion into our lives, when government legislates in the name of progress, you must adapt.
When the Interstate system was built it bypassed hundreds of small towns, but only a few died. The reason, the towns adapted, changed focus, so that they would survive and thrive, and this leads me to Tucumcari, New Mexico.
"TUCUMCARI TONITE and On Historic Route 66!" is their slogan and the town has adapted to tourists travelling Route 66.
The town has a handful of 40's and 50's style motels, the oldest is the Blue Swallow Motel built in the 1940's from surplus WW II cabins, but the one I stayed the night is the Motel Safari, just down and across from the Blue Swallow.
The motel is a classic motel that you would expect on Route 66, but it has been updated to modern standards. Wi-FI, flat screen TVs, pillow top mattresses, speakman showerheads, plush towels, & all with small town hospitality. The motel is American owned and is a must stay on Route 66.
Here, is a town and here is a motel that is thriving because they wanted to live, so they adapted, they changed and now they have inspired me, because the point is:
myself, you as an individual, the business owner of Motel Safari, and residents of small towns have more control over their destiny than President Obama has or the government has, we the people do the most living and dying and yes we control our destiny and our lives not the government.
The rhetoric of President Obama is the complete opposite of his actions. If the USA was a Christian nation we would call the president a good old fashion HYPOCRITE, however, since that is no longer the case, the president is a lip server that is full of deception. President Obama will say anything to match the mood of the moment, even if it contradicts everything he has done or that he will do. He is a confidence man, he gets you right where he wants you and then takes you for everything you have.
In the town hall meeting today Obama spoke the Truth:
President Barack Obama, calling current deficit spending "unsustainable," warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries.
"We can’t keep on just borrowing from China," Obama said at a town-hall meeting in Rio Rancho, N.M., outside Albuquerque. "We have to pay interest on that debt, and that means we are mortgaging our children’s future with more and more debt."
Holders of U.S. debt will eventually "get tired" of buying it, causing interest rates on everything from auto loans to home mortgages to increase, Obama said. "It will have a dampening effect on our economy."
He’s right on all counts. The day of
reckoning is fast approaching, so the
question is Mr. President, why have you
increased our deficit by nearly a trillion dollars in one year? If this is
unsustainable why are you doing what you are doing? Why do you continue
down the path of unsustainable debt?
Just wait, tomorrow he will say one thing and do another, this is the
character of a man who says one thing and does another, a good old fashioned
Clarity of vision, I am here to tell you that many Christians lacked clear vision and were deceived by Barack Hussein Obama, and it is ironic that it was Christian voters that gave Obama the White House. Monthly Church-Goers voted 54% for Obama compared to 46% for McCain. This is just one demographic but it represents the percentage McCain lost the election. I know the White Evangelical vote was 75% for McCain and 25% for Obama, but of all the people that attend church at least once a month voted almost 6 out of 10 for Obama. The conclusion is a lot of Christians voted for Obama. Now over 100 days into his presidency, we the people are witnessing a radical revolution, an Executive Branch and a Legislative Branch that has declared war on liberty of the individual and private enterprise. If you are one of the Christians who voted for Obama and you do not recognize what is going on in our government, you need to take your blinders off and wake-up.
After 9-11, I took two years off to teach at Washington High School in Kansas City, Kansas. In one of my interviews I had to teach a 5-10 lesson to a group of teachers, administrators, and leaders in the Kansas City Teaching Fellows Program. I chose the topic of why the founders separated the government into three branches. The founders were students of God's Word and they knew God was the King, Lawgiver, and the Judge. The founders also knew God was perfect, sinless, and He alone could hold all those powers, they also knew, they had experienced tyranny when an earthly king held all three powers. The founders decided to separate the EXECUTIVE (KING), LEGISLATIVE (LAWGIVER), and the JUDICIARY (JUDGE), that way NO ONE PERSON OR BODY HELD ALL THE POWER, they even further went a step further States are the Sovereign Powers that created the limited Powers of the Federal Government. Now you know why the USA has three branches, and why they are separate.
Today, President Obama while stating that the USA IS NOT A CHRISTIAN NATION, is expanding his power to the level of SOFT-TYRANNY. Obama and his party wants to control all aspects of our lives, he has systematically started to tear down brick by brick the principles that have enabled us to be the Shining City on the Hill and if he continues his course God only knows what will be left if anything of our Republic. So, on National Prayer Day, please pray, and if you are Christian who voted for Obama, please ask God for forgiveness, repent and join the movement to retake back our country. Here, is a video that puts a funny spin on why you were deceived:
Today Chrysler became the first automaker since 1933 to declare bankruptcy under the heavy hand of the Executive Branch, this ties into the clip of Democrat Congresswoman Jan Shakowsky's (D-Il) remarks that the goal of the Obama's Health Care Reform is to DESTROY Private Health Insurance. So goes the Chrysler Bankruptcy, Obama's goal to DESTROY Private Enterprise.
“I know many of you here today are single payer advocates and so am I … and those of us who are pushing for a public health insurance don’t disagree with this goal. This is not a principled fight. This is a fight about strategy for getting there and I believe we will,” Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) told a group of government-run health care supporters on April 18.
This is a fight, a fight for Liberty, Free Enterprise, and Private Property, if we continue to let the Obama Change to take over, soon our country will be lost. The GOAL: TO DESTROY THE PRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY THAT MADE THIS COUNTRY GREAT. This is the GOAL of Obama and the Democrats.
Arthur: Old man, sorry. What knight lives in that castle over there?
Dennis: I'm 37.
Dennis: I'm 37, I'm not old!
Arthur: Well, I can't just call you "man".
Dennis: You could say "Dennis".
Arthur: I didn't know you were called Dennis.
Dennis: Well you didn't bother to find out, did you?
Arthur: I did say I'm sorry about the "old woman" thing, but from behind you looked...
Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treatin' me like an inferior.
Arthur: Well, I am king.
Dennis: Oh, king, eh? Very nice. And how'd you get that, then? By exploiting the workers! By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society! If there's ever going to be any progress...
Dennis' Mother: Dennis, Dennis, there's some lovely filth down here! [sees Arthur] Oh. How'd you do?
Arthur: How do you do, good lady? I am Arthur, king of the Britons. Whose castle is that?
Dennis' Mother: King of the who?
Arthur: The Britons.
Dennis' Mother: Who are the Britons?
Arthur: Well, we are. You are all Britons and I am your king.
Dennis' Mother: I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective.
Dennis: You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship! A self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working class...
Dennis' Mother: Oh there you go, bringing class into it again!
Dennis: But that's what it's all about! If only people would realise...
Arthur: Please, please, good people. I am in haste. Who lives in that castle?
Dennis' Mother: No one lives there.
Arthur: Then who is your lord?
Dennis' Mother: We don't have a lord.
Dennis: I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as sort-of-executive officer for the week...
Dennis: ... But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting...
Arthur: Yes, I see.
Dennis:... by a simple majority, in the case of purely internal affairs...
Arthur: [getting bored] Be quiet.
Dennis:... but by a two thirds majority, in the case of more major —
Arthur: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
Dennis' Mother: Order, eh? Who does he think he is?
Arthur: I am your king!
Dennis' Mother: Well I didn't vote for you.
Arthur: You don't vote for kings!
Dennis' Mother: How'd you become king, then?
Arthur: The Lady of the Lake,... [Angel chorus begins singing in background] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [Angel chorus ends] THAT is why I am your king!
Dennis: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis: You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Arthur: Shut up!
Dennis: I mean, if I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
Arthur: Shut up! Will you shut up?! [Grabs Dennis and shakes him]
Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!
Arthur: Shut up!
Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! HELP, HELP, I'M BEING REPRESSED!
Arthur: BLOODY PEASANT!!
Dennis: Oh, what a giveaway. Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about! Did you see him repressing me? You saw it, didn't you?
WASHINGTON - APRIL 02: (L-R) House Budget Committee Chairman John Spratt (D-SC), Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are reflected in a mirror during a news conference in the Rayburn Room of the U.S. Captiol April 2, 2009 in Washington, DC. The House Democratic leaders were talking about passing President Barack Obama's proposed budget.
The Magic mirror in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs explains who is the fairest in all the land. Today's mirror reflecting the Democratic Leadership in the House is answering the question Who is the most dim-witted in all the land? The MAGIC MIRROR ANSWERS with the ABOVE REFLECTION. The House passed Obama's Budget 233-196, NO REPUBLICAN VOTED IN FAVOR OF THE OBAMA BUDGET. READ FULL STORY
THE DEMOCRATS OWN IT, yes America, today is a turning point, No longer can the Republicans be blamed, no longer can George W. Bush be blamed, if it does not succeed the only one to blame is in the MAGIC MIRROR, "THE DEMOCRATS."
On a day when many across these United States play practical jokes on one another or News Papers across America print April Fool's Day Editions, there is a National Monument that is not laughing. It is a phenomenonom that has occurred numerous times after it rains and the run-off from the rain runs down the Black Hills in South Dakota, the remnant of the rain dripping from the eyes of the Presidents that have been carved into the granite of Mount Rushmore. Tears flowing from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, & Abraham Lincoln. The monument is weeping, and those tears are a symbol of what is happening in America today.
The great leaders, the great men, the great presidents that were carved by the hands of man on Mount Rushmore signify true leadership, true liberty, and true patriots.
Today, the terms Liberty and Patriot are the rallying cries of million of Americans, who like Mount Rushmore, are weeping over the direction our Federal Government is leading this Great Nation. The men on Mount Rushmore would be shocked by the path Barack Hussein Obama is guiding this country. If these men were alive today, they would not only weep, but they would stand, shout, and fight, yes I mean literally fight to bring this nation back to the principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence.
Liberty and patriot are more than terms it is a way of life that must be bought and paid for everyday, and I am sorry to say that most Americans are unwilling or not interested in taking the steps to bring back these principles. Americans today want something for nothing, they want the easy way, and they want it now and they are unwilling to pledge their sacred honor, their fortune, or their lives for liberty.
In my office I have a banner that all my clients see when they come to my office and it explains the principle of a PATRIOT:
n. a person who loves his country and will do all he can for it.
"A PATRIOT'S FOREMOST RESPONSIBILITY IS TO PROTECT AND DEFEND HIS COUNTRY FROM ITS GOVERNMENT."
George, Thomas, Theodore, And Abraham all understood this principle of liberty and they lived and led their lives by it.
The amazing gets more amazing, the weird gets weirder, and the remarkable . . . REVEALED. No, I am not talking about Ripley's Believe It or Not's Odditorium, No I am describing the Obama administration. A side note, I went to Branson, Missouri for the weekend and for the first time I visited the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum orOdditorium in Branson. Proof #1 that when the government is not involved in a private enterprise, the business or attraction can succeed, myself, my wife, and my eight year old daughter enjoyed the museum, if you have the chance go to a Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum, it will blow you away. Just another example that it is people who create jobs not the government, and I continued to think this thought as I drove throughout Branson, Missouri, "What government program created this attraction and these jobs?'" NONE . . . it was formed by entrepreneurs, people, risk-takers, not the government.
I really digress, but Obama has become the next TRUMP, he has fired CEO of General Motors . . . READ FULL STORY
NATIONALIZATION, SOFT-TYRANNY, GOVERNMENT STIMULUS, and the idea Government is the solution to job creation and our problems has believe it or not, given us a President who will stop at nothing to achieve his agenda and control . . . the remarkable, REVEALED.
On March 31, 2009 President Barack Obama leaves on a European journey that will include a meeting in London on the global economic crisis, a gathering of NATO allies on the French-German border, then to the Czech Republic . . . Well do not expect the royal treatment Obama, in just under 70 days, Obama may have strained USA's Relations with Europe far more than George W. Bush could have dreamed. Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek condemned the U.S. and Obama's economic recovery plan as a "WAY TO HELL."
Mirek Topolanek is the current president ofthe European Union (though, his status his very uncertain). Today, citing Barack Obama’s “Buy America”policies in his stimulus plan, exploding budget deficits, and Timothy Geithner’s toxic asset plan Topolanek declared that,“all these steps, these combinations, and permanency is the way to hell.”
