Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

WHERE IS OUR HUMANITY? Submitted by Shannon Ward

Occasionally I have the honor of introducing a fellow blogger and posting her thoughts on my website. This is one such occasion. The following was not intended to be an essay, as such. It was simply the heartfelt views of a young lady expressing her inner thoughts before a sometimes cruel world. I read those thoughts, asked her permission to publish them, and now put her words before you.

As we look at the events of this day we ask ourselves some important questions. Where am I in humanity? Do I see the carnage that is in the Ukraine? Do I turn away without reflection as to the lives lost? Do I recognize that those shapes of human beings, lying in the wreckage as being human beings?

They, a short time previous, were alive, laughing, listening to music, talking, writing, and viewing the clouds around them. They were traveling to places for holiday, work, or going home. Men, women and children from many countries and different walks of life. They had friends and families who now mourn and grieve for the loss of their loved ones.

The human loss is not only those who are lying motionless in a wheat field in the Ukraine. The humanity that is lost is also reflected in those who, through their own soulless decisions and actions, brought a plane down, effectively murdering all on board who were innocent. They are those who are now denying that they executed 295 souls on board flight MH17.  

Elsewhere, Israel is standing alone to defend themselves from an enemy who wants them erased from the earth. Israel, is using her military and ordinance to defend her people like a protective mother who protects her precious young. Meanwhile their enemies use their citizens to protect the locations of arms. Mosques, schools, and homes are used to store and launch death at a people who have been targeted numerous times throughout history.

Hamas uses the people of Gaza and elsewhere as human shields. After bombing Israel they run and hide behind the skirts of the citizens and then use their deaths as a propaganda tool. Showing the bodies of women and children as their proof of the evil of Israel. They manufacture false evidence because they are the ones that created the carnage toward their own people.

Now for another question of humanity: Where is the humanity of our "leader"? Obama, yet again the "great campaigner," stated "it looks like a terrible tragedy." How can someone who is supposed to lead our country state "it looks like a terrible tragedy."? It is a tragedy! People from many countries are dead. Many may be Americans.(Best count, at the moment, is twenty three).

People who were mothers, fathers, sons and daughter, sisters and brothers now lie in a field, dead.  Their futures forever gone, but their memories will live on in the hearts of those who loved them.

Obama's statement does not instill confidence in those who, through our humanity, are deeply affected by the events of this day. Yet Obama is out there, on still another campaign trail to raise money.

With his soulless response, he further demonstrates his detachment from any activity that could demonstrate that he is a true leader of the free world. With his response he proves he is feckless as a "leader," He shows he is disengaged in any activity that may take some hard decisions when it comes to protection of our citizens or appropriate reaction to a true act of evil.  

He once tried to compare himself to Ronald Reagan, a man who demonstrated time and again his strength of character; a man who was thoughtful, respectful and dignified; a man who exuded an air of confidence to allay fears during times of crises. He took the reins of leadership seriously. To lead one must be leading and in front; not behind and hiding.

He was a man who demonstrated, in his service to our heritage, a deep respect for the citizens of our country, and the history that formed this great nation. Reagan was a man who was also a true friend to our allies. After the downing of the Korean Jet our President shared in our grief. In Reagan's address to the American people and the others around the world, he showed his heartfelt humanity in his words.

He portrayed a leader who not only sympathized with those who lost loved ones, but empathized and shared their grief in the loss of human life. He also stated that those responsible for the horrific attack on the Korean Jet should be held responsible.

From Obama we get none of the emotion that would be appropriate at this time. Instead, we get his emotionless response that is read from a piece of electronic equipment. The dispassionate words were cold, flat, detached, toneless, delivered in a stone faced manner that reflects his indifference to events of this day.

There are so many examples of his incompetence as the leader of the free world. He stumbles along, blaming others as he trips through his 2nd term. Bobbing and weaving from one crises and scandal to the next one, like a drunk stumbling from one bar to the next, in the drunk's misguided attempt to hide his inebriation. When will the media actually do their job and show the world that this emperor, has no clothes?


  1. Should we expect anything more from a guy that voted "present" most of his life?

  2. Thank you Shannon very well said.

    One week ago I told anyone who was talking about the illegal immigrant problem to keep their eyes wide open because something was going to happen to take our eyes off that situation and on to another. I read an article on Wednesday that had my blood boiling.


    Now because of outside pressure they have stopped the deal. HMMM do any of us really believe that. I did some checking on this Baptist group they recently received $190 million in federal grants to build more places throughout the US. Beside the $50 million they received for this project. They received $63 million (from the taxpayers) in 2013 and paid $33 million in salaries to very few people. Something is very, very wrong with this group who say they are for families and children. More investigation needs to be done.

    And lo and behold the news of yesterday has taken everyones minds away from the border and onto something else. Do I think the two new events of yesterday have been coordinated by SOA (Soros Obama agenda, I think that's what Danny calls it) I doubt it, but how convenient for them. I am sure they having a big sigh of relief for the moment that the pressure is off for now.

    Pure evil surrounds us.

  3. Thank you for sharing Danny.

  4. Here is an update with the glaring details of this "faith based group"

    1. Glenda, I recall during the Obama/McCain debates when the topic of 'faith based groups'(FBG) was broached by Rick Warren of Saddleback Church. Since then Warren has begun an outreach to Islam and provides Qur'ans in the pews while promoting moral equivalence. You stated above "Pure evil surrounds us." That it does, and much of that evil is being promoted in the name of religion, or their affiliated FBG, and when I point this out many act as though I am crucifying Jesus again. I am not, but the leaders of his followers are.

      I have NO sacred cows and in all fields pursue the truth, whatever it may be, and that sets me apart from the 'Faithful'. Today so very many are frightened that they are losing their liberties and are even more frightened by the prospects of asking why. Long ago I recognized the collective danger of organized religion and government; so too did the Founders and so they created a dichotomy known as the separation of church and state.That separation has disappeared and now we are coming to a state dominated by what Ayn Rand referred to as Witch Doctors and Thugs. Such a state is totally implemented in Iran; we are only on the way.

      I put a great deal of effort into my internet library and one of the topics was 'The Religious Left', well documented and factual. I have referred many to it and thus far my stats reveal that eight people have visited the site, a wasted effort on my part. Another wasted effort was my recent series of News Roundups. Total waste of time! The first day July 14...74 readers. Not too bad for day one. Day two jumped up to 108, day three, dropped to 49, four to 43, and five to 35. I have often written that people really do not want the truth. Nothing better validates my point than this.

      I suggest to any who wish to learn on their own that they visit my internet topic News Sources. Great turnout...six views. I see so much rubbish from the hoax and sensationalist sites being reposted in groups and must wonder if the person who reposted actually read the tripe or simply functions as a mindless automation in his effort to wake up America.

      Glenn Beck often told Americans to do their own research. I do mine. News Roundup takes approximately five hours to prepare, and were the effort not falling onto the willfully blind I would continue. I shall not, as they do not want to know. To some I may seem like an arrogant SOB but I know the effort that I put into trying to save this nation and meant it when I wrote that if all Americans put forth three percent of the effort that I do we would come out of this as victors. They do not, and at least until this nation totally crumbles around us, we shall not.

  5. Help me out here ...Are you mad at me for posting something that you already know about or are you mad no one was going to read what I posted. No matter what the numbers are Danny I will still read what you put out there, I still pass your thoughts along to everyone I know because I think what you say is that important!

    Just a side note....Has Beck "jumped the shark" what is he doing?

    1. Glenda, I do not allow myself the luxury of feeling anger, and even if I did I could not be angry with you. Joanna over in Poland recently described me as her 'reality anchor'. You are one of mine. You are one of the few who can grasp the enormity of the situation we face. While avoiding anger I nonetheless am fully capable of being disappointed, and I am terribly disappointed in the bulk of our fellow Americans. They shun the truth and embrace escapism and denial, choosing to negotiate or complain about evil rather to confront it. Actually News Roundup did exactly what I thought it would and that was to prove an abject lack of interest on the part of our fellow 'patriots'.

      As for Glenn Beck, another disappointment. He, more than anyone alive, was responsible for bringing the truth before this nation and in that regard he was a great teacher. Today I cannot help but feel that he has broken under years of strain, I fault him not for the break but wish that he would resign and get some rest.

      I cannot help but feel that the day of that break was Election Day, 2012. Glenn had stood before millions of Americans and promised that forty days of fasting and prayer would win God over to our side and Obama would be deposed.The fact that God did not intervene was the breaking point for the man whom I have long admired and I cannot help but believe that he blamed himself for the failing, and has donned the mantle of a modern day Job, whose only mission in life was to prove his devotion in spite of all.

      Glenn's religious beliefs and reality now create a stark contrast and I must conclude that his religious devotion has given birth to a severe handicap for those of us still in the fight. His teddy bears and soccer balls agenda are now giving the progressives and liberals reason to stay that even Glenn Beck agrees with them. Well, they have their views and I have mine, and I recall the old adage about the road to hell being paved with good intentions. Mister Beck, with his good intentions has paved another mile on that road.

      Another adage that I am fond of is "Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way." Glenn Back is no longer capable of leading, will not follow, and I wish that he would choose the last option, as he has now, through his own good intentions, become a tool for those who would destroy us.

  6. Shannon . . . thank you for this essay. I agree completely with all you had to say, and you could not have summed up more accurately or appropriately. You have portrayed our fragile humanity and that which plagues it . . . the sheer evil of power and corruption. This is a battle that can only be won in the hearts of man. Those who commit such atrocities are totally void of soul and heart, which leaves them void of reasoning concepts.
    Your description aptly shows your heart of compassion, concern and fairness … qualities which America has in the past always possessed. America was built on Judeo-Christian principles regardless of what others try to proclaim now … principles that taught us compassion, concern and fairness. Danny claimed in one of his essays that we had lost our morals and he is correct. Without moral grounding we are doomed for it is from our moral grounding that we develop the character that defines our humanity. Without principles man makes his own rules and they are always selfish, abusive and oppressive.

    I believe you are right … Obama is soulless therefore he cannot sympathize but I don’t think he is incompetent. I think he is going right along with his agenda. He is just EVIL PERSONIFIED, so he really doesn’t care. Any display of concern is fake.

    As far as the media goes, don’t expect anything from them. The days are gone when the media knew the meaning of words like HONOR and TRUTH. Many are as corrupt as the dear Potus and will do anything to protect their career. They don’t like America either.

    I believe in a higher power, one that is perhaps a bit disappointed right now in what we have become but your essay gives me a glimpse of the soul of my fellowman that encourages me. Thank you again for sharing. Let us hope that from the ashes the “EAGLE” will rise.

    I will add one thing here. If you want to get rid of evil then you have to start with those who PREACH it from their safeguarded PULPITS. ___ GO TO THE SOURCE
