I think back to my youth in the fifties and recall television and the messages it delivered. There was Superman, Wyatt Earp, Wagon Train, Gunsmoke and others. TV provided us with an unending saga of the kind of people who built this nation and the fight against good and evil. For the kids we had Howdy Doody and his efforts to stop the evil Phineas T. Bluster. Gone are the days when Matt Dillon and Howdy Doody fought evil. Gone too is the age old struggle between good and evil as today's culture has come to a moral impasse and our degraded beliefs have led many of our people into the nether world of moral equivalence.
The concept of moral equivalence being disseminated in our schools, universities, churches, and political circles is depriving its victims of the ability to apply reason and understand the difference between right and wrong. No good outcome can be expected if this ideology continues to spread.
Rational Wiki tells us...
Moral equivalence is a form of equivocation often used in political debates. It seeks to draw comparisons between different, often unrelated things, to make a point that one is just as bad as the other or just as good as the other. It may be used to draw attention to an unrelated issue by comparing it to a well-known bad event, in an attempt to say one is as bad as the other. Or, it may be used in an attempt to claim one isn't as bad as the other by comparison. Drawing a moral equivalence in this way is a logical fallacy.
We have recently seen Obama relying on this fallacy as he pointed to the actions of the Catholic Inquisition of five hundred years ago in defending the actions of Islam today. The simple fact of the matter is that moral equivalence is an effort to blur the distinction between good and evil and many of our young are being led into this baited trap. I will guarantee you this: Eliminate good, and evil will prevail, and few will like the world they have created, for it will be one of absolute anarchy and chaos. This is the world that Obama and his mentors seek to impose upon mankind.
I have written extensively about my belief that the Globalists' plan for instituting a police state calls for such anarchy and chaos to torment humanity until they are begging for mercy. In return for ending it the Globalists will demand absolute power. The day that they achieve this goal will be the first day of the new dark age.
Today, as bad as things seems world wide, their plan is only the early stages and it will get far far worse. Terrorism is the leading edge of the plan and our politicians and Globalist leaders are minimizing the danger in the public's eye while promoting it in clandestine political circles. Needless to say, Obama is in the forefront, uttering platitudes, and defending the prophet, while decrying the Christians of the world.

Obama Removes Iran from Terror List, Praises it for Fighting Terrorism
The National Review in describing the negotiations in Lausanne Switzerland as a surrender to Tehran. I view the exchange in a somewhat different light. Many see Islam as a force acting on its own. I perceive them as no more than the cannon fodder and the unwitting allies of the Globalists. They and their bloodthirsty ways are but part of the plan to enslave the west. Once that is accomplished they will be eliminated as an obsolete weapon. Rather than a surrender to Tehran I see these negotiations as a way to arm the forces that will be used against the people of the west.

Surrender to Tehran
Iranian negotiators have triumphed on nearly every substantive point: They will get complete sanctions relief and U.N. legitimacy all at once, while keeping thousands of centrifuges, multiple nuclear sites, the right to develop new, more advanced enrichment equipment — even permission to continue nuclear research at a highly reinforced underground facility that was kept secret from international inspectors for years.
And Thomas Sowell is quite skeptical of the whole deal.

HEZBOLLAH CHIEF COMMENDS NUKE DEAL FOR HELPING IRAN FUND TERROR GROUPS
“Iran will become richer and wealthier and will also become more influential,” said Nasrallah. “There is no doubt that an agreement will have repercussions on the region,” he added.
In the interview, Nasrallah pointed to Israel and Saudi Arabia’s condemnation of the deal as evidence that it would immensely benefit Tehran.
The IPT well understands the outcome of these concessions to Iran.

Iran Deal Frees Up New Financing to Carry Out Terrorism
Promised relief from crippling economic sanctions will soon place Iran in a far better position to finance its extensive list of clients and activate them to subvert, destabilize, and spread conflict and mayhem across the region.
They include the Shi'ite Lebanese organization Hizballah – the most highly armed terrorist entity in the world, active in the Syrian civil war – the Shi'ite Houthi forces currently seizing and destabilizing Yemen, a plethora of militant Shi'ite militias in Iraq, the Islamic Jihad terror group in Gaza and the West Bank, and Hamas, with which Iran has recently mended relations. Iran has begun sending Hamas, which rules over Gaza, tens of millions of dollars for its combat tunnel reconstruction and rocket manufacturing programs. The Iranian investment in Gaza's Islamist war capabilities will only rise after sanctions are lifted.
Anyone reasonably well informed and possessing but a small degree of common sense can understand the danger presented by Obama and Kerry in their efforts to give away the store. Why then do our elected leaders in the Congress not see the same? Well some do and they tell their constituents that they want to vote on it. And it is there that the ultimate absurdity of what has happened in Washington becomes apparent.
Breitbart ... April 8, 2015
KERRY: CONGRESS CAN VOTE AS LONG AS IT DOESN’T INTERFERE WITH OBAMA’S DEAL
What then is the purpose of our electing people to Congress? That one statement basically has declared Congress to be totally irrelevant. They can vote as long as they agree with Obama. Americans are being indoctrinated with the concept that none shall oppose Hussein Obama, and to all outward appearances, none can; at least not effectively.
One of the great weaknesses of most of the American public is their daily trip to Fantasy Land. So many are convinced that they are safe due to the efforts of our protective government while the fact of the matter is that government spends more time protecting our enemies than they do us. The following is a prime example of how America protects (Or does not protect) their own:

U.S. agrees to refuel Saudi planes, but isn't evacuating Americans from Yemen
Warren said Monday that the United States has “assets in place” to evacuate Americans but has not begun to do so.
Several points about the above headline: First off Saudi Arabia has not asked us to refuel their aircraft as they no longer trust us. And, all nations, with the exception of the U.S., are getting their citizens out of Yemen as it is being overran by terrorists funded by Obama's friends in Iran.

Egypt, Libya: U.S. Not Supporting Us Against the Islamists
Egyptian President El-Sisi is gently criticizing the U.S. for not supporting the anti-Islamist government of Libya enough. He said, "there is a legitimate [Libyan] government and that government is denied the weapons it needs to confront terrorists."
Returning now to my comment about Americans in Fantasy Land ... 911 was long ago and, contrary to Bush's statement, most Americans have forgotten or live with the delusion that such a thing could never happen to them. In terms of terrorism they still think that it is 'Over there'. While I hate raining on anyone's parade the danger of lone wolf terrorists attack is always with us.

65th Islamist Terrorist Plot or Attack Since 9/11: Persistent Terrorism Requires Constant Vigilance
Last Thursday, just one week after two cousins in Chicago were arrested for attempting to support a foreign terrorist organization, two women in New York City were arrested and charged with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

Would-Be Suicide Bomber Targeted Kansas Army Base
A year ago, he wanted to join the U.S. Army to kill his fellow soldiers. When that didn't work, 20-year-old John T. Booker repeatedly expressed his desire to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or commit a suicide attack in the United States on the terrorist group's behalf. Booker, a convert to Islam who changed his name to Mohammed Abdullah Hassan, said American soldiers are enemies to Muslims, and the Quran sanctions killing enemies anywhere.
And let us not forget the Boston Marathon bombing...
Jihad Watch ... April 10, 2015
More than half of Americans say they have unfavorable views of Islam, and six in 10 either aren’t interested or don’t know whether they want to learn more about the faith, according to a new poll.
I added the above highlight due to my serious concern of a prevailing state of apathy among our people. Not even interested when common sense warns us 'Know thine enemy!' So many do not, and their ignorance adds to the danger we all face.
'More than half...' That would indicate that a little less than half of our people are certified idiots.
Islam is a cult of death, a very large cult, and while exact data is unavailable, it is estimated that three to seven million Muslims reside in the U.S. and the liberals who excuse the behavior of militant Muslims tell us that those militants only constitute a small percentage of the whole; some fifteen to twenty percent.
Moderate! We are always hearing the word 'moderate' and so let us be just that. Let's go with the lesser population estimate and assume that there are only three million of them among us. Let us also go with the lesser number of estimated radicals, a paltry fifteen percent. So a moderate estimate of the radicals among us is an estimated 450,000. Not to worry! And most don't, because they cannot see far enough down the road to perceive the danger.
Bold enough to take a look down that road with me?
We are all aware of the fact that this nation is now eighteen trillion dollars in debt. This is an unsustainable situation and it will inevitably lead to a crash. The nation states of Europe are balanced on the same precarious cliff as are we. The only thing delaying that crash are the Globalists, the banksters, and people such as George Soros. They could crash it all tomorrow but that would not be in line with their plan. They want UTTER anarchy and chaos, and so the element of timing becomes crucial.
To that end, expect another 911 or perhaps multiple 911s to occur on the same day. On that day Wall Street will crash if it is not vaporized in a nuclear blast. Overnight our economy will cease to exist and those who have lived for so long on their EBT cards will begin to riot.
In an event such as this, there will be no money, no food in the stores, liquor stores will already have been looted and vandalized. Americans are famous for their apathetic and lazy outlook, but even with the best case scenario America will get very ugly overnight.
Now for the worst case scenario. You thought that I was going to forget about those 450,000 militant Muslims didn't you? These people grew up hard, fast, and mean in their homelands, and most share a strong contempt for all who share not their love of Allah. Hell! Look at what they do to each other in the Middle East. How much mercy do you expect them to show we the kuffars? Recall if you will that 450,000 is a very moderate figure. In a time of national collapse count on the three to seven million joining their countrymen as they destroy ours.
A few years ago I wrote an essay and provided evidence about the appalling state of affairs in the U.S.. A reader made a comment to the effect of "Now, how do we get out of this mess?" I had no realistic answer. At the time I was convinced that we were headed for civil war as the powers that be grow ever more corrupt and powerful. Today I no longer believe that Americans have what it takes to fight back. They are simply going to accept the future that our leaders have planned for them. Apathy, police states, and slavery all seem to go hand in hand, and we are well on the way. We have all seen various versions of the image to the left posted far and wide by our internet 'patriots'. The problem, as I see it, is that those patriots, while agreeing with the premise, do not want to be the one doing the paying.
As they say "There ain't no free lunches.", and being unwilling to pay, one day our grandchildren will wish that we had paid the bill when it was due, for they will have lost their freedom due to our apathy. A life of serfdom will be their lot, and the lot of their offspring until one day, as the cycle of history again comes full circle, a new generation is born with the courage to do what we would not. On that day America may once again be called the land of the free and the home of the brave. Until then those words are but an anachronism from a past when they were once true.
