The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Sould A Woman Be Punished For Having An Abortion?


At first, Trump was asked if a woman should be punished for having an abortion. Frankly, when he started out, it was quite weak.
“If you say abortion is a crime or abortion is murder, you have to deal with it under the law,” Matthews rightly said. “Should abortion be punished?”
“Well, people in certain parts of the Republican Party and conservative Republicans would say ‘yes, they should be punished’,” Trump responded, not actually answering the question presented to him. So Matthews asked again, “How about you?”
“I would say that it’s a very serious problem and it’s a problem we have to decide on,” Trump said, again not answering the question.
Trump did go on to say he is “pro-life” and against abortion, but he was pressed further by Matthews on what “banning abortion” means and the resulting consequences.
Mr. Trump reminded Matthews that in the past, when abortion was treated as murder, that those who engaged in the practice did it in back alleys and such. Why? Because it was murder! People who steal, try to hide it. Those who commit adultery, try to hide it. Those who lie, try to cover up the truth. And yes, those who commit murder, want to do it in the dark.

Of course, Matthews, like all liberals, claims concern for the health of the mother. If that is really true, then he should be shouting from the housetops for women not to have an abortion. Abortions scar women not only physically, but even mentally and spiritually. Furthermore, we know that literally hundreds if not thousands of abortion clinics don’t operate within the law and that many women have had to be rushed to the hospital due to their “safe and legal” abortion, and some have even died.

Matthews was asked by Trump how he felt about the Roman Catholic Church’s position on abortion in an attempt to get Matthews to be consistent with his agreement with the church’s position on abortion, but Matthews flipped it back that he wasn’t running for president. That’s true, but if he were consistent, he would have taken the position that abortion is murder and he would support Trump’s final answer. Matthews tries to draw a line between what is moral and what is legal (or lawful). Friends, real morality and real law come from the Lawgiver, God. If you are lawless, then you are not moral, you are immoral.
Trump simply stated, “There has to be some form of punishment” for the woman who has an abortion. That’s right, but what should that punishment be? Trump didn’t have an answer.
Fortunately, the Bible does. And not only does the Bible have an answer, it states that answer, which is justice, over and over and over.
“Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.” Genesis 9:6
“Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death.” Leviticus 24:17
“If anyone kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the evidence of witnesses. But no person shall be put to death on the testimony of one witness. Moreover, you shall accept no ransom for the life of a murderer, who is guilty of death, but he shall be put to death.” Numbers 35:30-31
“But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.” Romans 13:4

Now, if your first response to me is, “Tim, you’re just a Christian Taliban,” but you will also go and tell people that America was built on Judeo-Christian principles, please tell me what those principles are, if they are not the principles of God’s law? Our forefathers understood the law of God and implemented it and its just punishments in law in our history. Just look at how they handled sodomy and what they pointed to as their point of reference for what was unlawful about it and the justice administered.
Finally, I received an article from a man who blasted Trump over his answer.

“Donald Trump may have finally torpedoed his campaign by telling Chris Matthews and a nationwide TV audience that there should be ‘some form of punishment’ for a woman who has an abortion. He managed in so doing to horrify forces on the far left and to cause anguish in the pro-life community, which believes legal punishment should be reserved for abortionists rather than the women who seek their services.” (Emphasis mine)

This man went on to write, “Does she bear moral culpability for that decision? Of course she does. But the way forward for women is healing through repentance rather than time in jail.”
I have never heard that the pro-life movement doesn’t believe that the woman should not be held accountable for her part in the murder. That’s like saying that we’ll hold the hitman accountable, but not the husband who paid him to kill his wife. Why is her crime not to be punished, but to give her space for “repentance,” but the doctor she paid to murder her baby punished? Does that make any sense people? Shame on those in the “pro-life” movement who think this way! They may be pro-life, but they certainly are not pro-justice, and as a friend of mine rightly says, “Justice is the guardian of liberty.”

Granted, Trump needs to take a stronger position on this issue, but seeing that a punishment should be administered for murdering babies is a good place to be. Now Donald, break out your Bible and read it!

The Harley Davidson Trade War

Above, the massive Trans-Pacific Trade Deal (TPP) sits on Senator Jeff Sessions desk. 

This excellent report came from the Conservative Tree House.

Governor Scott Walker likes to display his rebel side (although it’s an illusion intended to solidify Tea-Party bona fides in optics only) by riding around on a Harley Davidson motorcycle.   After all, Harley Davidson is headquartered in Wisconsin.
Well, for now at least.
Wisconsin representative, now Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, also likes to tout his form of fiscal conservatism.  However, as the former Chairman of the budgetary ways and means committee, a federal budget is also an optical illusion (hasn’t been one since ’07).
Well, given Paul Ryan’s full-throated endorsement and promotion for the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal (TPP), perhaps the Wisconsin working voter would like to see exactly what they have in mind for you.  Remember, each of the aforementioned has also endorsed Senator Ted Cruz – who, not coincidentally, was the co-author of the Trade Promotion Authority bill (TPA) which was the vehicle to insure TPP’s passage.
Rather than go through all of the tentacles, and difficult to understand TPP construct, let’s instead use that wonderful Scott Walker (Harley Davidson motorcycle) example to show Wisconsin voters what’s really going on.
Representative Paul Ryan and Senator Ted Cruz created the legislative vehicle for The Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership, or TPP.    The legislative vehicle for TPP is called Trade Promotion Authority, or TPA.
Both Ryan and Cruz were actually quite proud of TPA, until candidate Donald Trump made a campaign issue of the trade deal.   Senator Cruz now claims he doesn’t support TPP.
However, these trade deal constructs did not happen by accident, they were built and designed for a reason.   The Wall Street connections to TPP brings the presidential election race into the more broad agenda, and that’s where you find a geographical relationship which immediately connects RNC head Reince Preibus.
You see, sometimes you need to step back to see the larger picture.
The RNC/GOP were bedfellows in 2014 along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its president Tom Donohue.  The U.S. CoC worked earnestly to get the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal constructed.  Donohue being the CEO in charge of the U.S. Business interests, via the Chamber, who were doing the actual trade deal negotiations.
The U.S. Chamber (Donohue) also needed a legislative path.  As a consequence the path needs legislatures as bill sponsors.  That’s where Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz come in to the picture.  Together in early 2015 they penned an Op-Ed which appeared in the Wall Street Journal, and also is available HERE.
How they actually worked in the House and Senate to get the trade vehicle, TPA, through the legislative system is quite remarkable.  FULL DETAILS HERE.

When we say “remarkable”, we really mean it.
When it is possible to usurp the will of the people, and simultaneously position yourself as outside of the construct therein, such Machiavellian plausible deniability should at the very least be recognized as brilliant.    TPA was a brutal scheme.  TPP is devastating to the U.S.  But the way Ryan/Cruz guided TPA through the House and Senate was brilliant nonetheless.
And that is where Wisconsinites (Preibus, Ryan, Walker) align with a unity agenda within the deal itself.  A deal constructed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that entirely benefits Wall Street.
Can you see now how the 2014 GOP roadmap gains increased importance, and how Presidential Candidate Scott Walker became part of the entire 2016 nomination scheme?    Follow the money.  Yes, including the Ricketts money.
Beyond the terrible legislation is the actual TPP trade deal itself; and beyond the TPP are the consequences to the U.S. manufacturing base and U.S. worker.
For an example of those consequences we turn to the beloved Harley Davidson.
A few years ago Harley Davidson opened a plant in Northern India, yes India.
[ Remember the Wisconsin Sikh Temple shooting – did you see those police at the CNN town hall questioning Donald Trump? ]
Coincidences are funny that way. I digress.
The Street motorcycles being sold in the U.S. will be manufactured in the Milwaukee-based company’s Kansas City facility, Wandell said. The Street bikes for international riders will be made in the company’s Bawal, India, plant that opened in 2011.
Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) currently assembles motorcycles in India and Brazil to avoid tariffs, but the parts are made in America and shipped as a kit to those countries. (link)
Harley Davidson in India?  Many die-hard hog fans were worried that Harley was going to start building their bikes out of country.  Given what happened to the auto industry can you blame them for worrying.   However, that wasn’t immediately what was happening, because Harley Davidson USA knew their bikes lived and died on the reputation of being “American Iron”, despite many of the parts made over seas.
However, India has a 100+% tariff on motorcycle imports.  When combined with other import taxes and duties it all adds up to a staggering 115% cost increase to sell a U.S. manufactured Harley in India.
India also has a population over a billion people.  A very large market!  But selling an expensive bike in a poor country with a 100+% import tariff makes the market virtually untouchable.  Unless…

….“We can make (the price) more attractive in those markets by building over there,” Blankenheim said

To work around the problem, and simultaneously set themselves up for future market opportunities, Harley Davidson built a plant in India.    If the Harley is built in India it can be sold in India for less than half the price of building in the U.S. and importing it.
However, the future opportunities angle stems from India not only building their own Harleys, but also manufacturing most of the Harley’s sold on the international market as well.  Build here and export from the U.S. and you find a big tariff at the destination; but build in India and export from India and the tariffs are avoided upon arrival.
How does this help the U.S. manufacturing of Harley Davidson?  How does this help jobs here in the U.S.?  How does this help the U.S. factory worker?
It doesn’t.
But the corporate side (Wall Street / NYSE “HOG”) books of Harley Davidson look great.
See how that works?
In essence, Harley USA will build Harley’s for the USA (disclaimer: “for now”), and Harley in India will build for most the rest of the world.   They are still in the working-out-the-kinks-process part of the global plan, but it is a plan being executed.
So you might ask if India, with a billion citizen market, charges a 100% tariff on U.S. manufactured product, well, what’s the tariff the USA charges to import a motorcycle here from say, Japan?
Well, that would be 2.4%.
Yes, a measly 2.4%
But, wait, it gets better – that is going away too:
America will remove a tariff levied on Japanese motorcycles with engine displacements of over 700cc under the recently announced Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact (TPP), which includes Australia and covers 40 percent of the global economy.
The 2.4 percent duty will be eliminated five years after the multilateral trade deal takes effect, which should, in theory, reduce the price of motorcycles in the over 700cc space in America, placing the imported fare on the same level playing field as home-grown marques like Harley-Davidson, Indian and Victory. Those marques mainly focus on bikes with engine capacities of more than 700cc.
America currently imposes no tariff on imported motorbikes with engines of 700cc or lower (link)
Are you seeing the problem yet?
If the U.S. export of a Harley Davidson incurs an import tariff at the destination (say China 30%, or Vietnam 40%), but the same tariff does not apply when the import arrives from India, what nation do you think will be manufacturing the Harley Davidson motorcycles which appear in China?
Meanwhile, the U.S. unilaterally disarms in the import tariff battle, and drops all import tariffs on the foreign motorcycles which will directly compete with those very same remaining Harley Davidson motorcycles which ARE made in the U.S.A.
Do you remember the Wisconsin Radio Host Charlie Sykes interview of Donald Trump when Sykes climbed atop his high horse and so “righteously” told Trump that Wisconsin is an Import-Export state, and tariffs hurt their economy? etc. etc. etc.
How does that Sykes gibberish look against this example now?
We are only using Harley Davidson as a representative example based on geography (Wisconsin).  This horrific Trade Deal applies nationwide in all areas of manufacturing, import and export.
Scott Walker will be fine, he’ll probably end up on Wall Street.  Speaker of the House Paul Ryan will be fine, he’ll lock in a multi-million lobbying contract.  Reince Preibus will be fine, he’s already got a rolodex filled with Global Bankers and High Financiers.
It’s the ordinary middle-class Wisconsin cheese-head voter who will be impacted.
Are they foolish enough to be co-dependents to their own financial demise?

I guess we’ll find out….

Wisconsin Values ?

Reference Notes – If you want to compare trade tariffs, examples as shared, on these motorcycles imports and exports you can go HERE to the duty calculator and select engines > 970cc (the first three duty comparison checks are free – after that the website charges for use).
Next time you are in a grocery store, pick up a package of Nabisco Fig Newtons, look at the small wording next to the ingredients and you will see “made in mexico”.  It’s the same poor trade deals that are creating the same outcomes.

Just a Reminder, this is an insurgency. – The modern enemy of Wall Street is Main Street vulgarians. The current enemy of the RNC/GOPe is not Democrats, it’s Grassroots Conservatives; Common Sense Conservatives; more vulgarians.
The Republican Party, and the Republican media apparatus, view us as their enemy. We are the enemy they need to protect themselves from:
In 2014, the RNC approved selection rules that govern how each state’s delegates are portioned out from the primaries. Under one of the changes, states holding their primaries between March 1 and March 14 will have their delegates doled out proportionately with election results, a change that will likely stymie a movement candidate.
States that have primaries on or after March 15 will be winner-take-all states.
That’s important because another RNC rule change requires that a candidate must win a majority of delegates in eight or more states before his or her name may be presented for nomination at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
With 18 GOP presidential candidates, for now, it will be that much harder for any candidate to win a majority in any state, let alone eight. (Article July 2015)
Now, ask yourself, why would the RNC want to “stymie a movement candidate“? Who exactly does that benefit? Obviously, the “non-movement” candidate, ie “the turtle“.
Isn’t the entire reason for campaigning in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina etc. to make a movement/momentum?
In addition Rule #40 changed in 2014 from previously five needed state wins, to a newer threshold of eight (8):
Officially, it’s Rule 40 in the RNC handbook and it states that any candidate for president “shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states” before their name is presented for nomination at the national convention. (article March 2014)
Again, ask yourself who does this benefit? A candidate can win seven states outright, and still not have their name presented for nomination?
These rules were made/affirmed in 2014 Who or what exactly was the GOP concerned about blocking in 2016 that would necessitate such rules? When combined with other rule changes you can clearly identify a consolidation of power within the RNC apparatus intentionally constructed to stop the candidate of the GRASSROOTS from achieving victory.

Federal Border Patrol Agents Council Endorses Trump

Green Line Logo

The National Border Patrol Council is the official organization representing our nation’s Border Patrol Agents. We represent 16,500 agents who selflessly serve this country in an environment where our own political leaders try to keep us from doing our jobs.

The NBPC has had a longstanding practice of not endorsing presidential candidates in the primaries. We will not, however, shy away from voicing our opinions as it pertains to border security and the men and women of the United States Border Patrol. As such, we are breaking with our past practice and giving our first-ever endorsement in a presidential primary. We think it is that important: if we do not secure our borders, American communities will continue to suffer at the hands of gangs, cartels and violent criminals preying on the innocent. The lives and security of the American people are at stake, and the National Border Patrol Council will not sit on the sidelines.
As an organization we expect our elected officials to aggressively pursue the interests of the country. America has already tried a young, articulate freshman senator who never created a job as an attorney and under whose watch criminal cartels have been given the freest border reign ever known.
Unlike his opponents, Donald Trump is not a career politician, he is an outsider who has created thousands of jobs, pledged to bring about aggressive pro-American change, and who is completely independent of special interests. We don't need a person who has the perfect Washington-approved tone, and certainly NOT another establishment politician in the W.H. Indeed, the fact that people are more upset about Mr. Trump’s tone than about the destruction wrought by open borders tells us everything we need to know about the corruption in Washington.
We need a person in the White House who doesn't fear the media, who doesn't embrace political correctness, who doesn't need the money, who is familiar with success, who won't bow to foreign dictators, who is pro-military and values law enforcement, and who is angry for America and NOT subservient to the interests of other nations. Donald Trump is such a man.
Mr. Trump is as bold and outspoken as other world leaders who put their country's interests ahead of all else. Americans deserve to benefit for once instead of always paying and apologizing. Our current political establishment has bled this country dry, sees their power evaporating, and isn't listening to voters who do all the heavy lifting. Trump is opposed by the established powers specifically because they know he is the only candidate who actually threatens the established powers that have betrayed this country.
You can judge a man by his opponents: all the people responsible for the problems plaguing America today are opposing Mr. Trump. It is those without political power – the workers, the law enforcement officers, the everyday families and community members – who are supporting Mr. Trump.
Mr. Trump will take on special interests and embrace the ideas of rank-and-file Border Patrol agents rather than listening to the management yes-men who say whatever they are programmed to say. This is a refreshing change that we have not seen before – and may never see again.
Mr. Trump is correct when he says immigration wouldn’t be at the forefront of this presidential campaign if months ago he hadn’t made some bold and necessary statements. And when the withering media storm ensued he did not back down one iota. That tells you the measure of a man. When the so-called experts said he was too brash and outspoken, and that he would fade away, they were proven wrong. We are confident they will be proven wrong again in November when he becomes President of the United States.
There is no greater physical or economic threat to Americans today than our open border. And there is no greater political threat than the control of Washington by special interests. In view of these threats, the National Border Patrol Council endorses Donald J. Trump for President – and asks the American people to support Mr. Trump in his mission to finally secure the border of the United States of America, before it is too late.

The Wolf "Shitzer" Stumps The Trump

Beth gives an excellent retort to how the "lame stream" media presstitutes treat Donald Trump and politicians generally. Wolfe Shitzer's question about abortion is a good case in point. As soon as a politician, minister or other public figure machine gun questions at him or her so they can't recover, hence making the politician look stupid and not politically correct. The "lame stream" media is totally corrupt and sold out traitors. Beth is correct, this is why some of us like "the Donald". Click the video links below.

Obama's Comments About Islam

Image result for obama's Islam remarks

Friends and Patriots, keep in mind that if you walk like a duck, quack like a duck and crap like a duck there is a very good chance you're a duck!
Mike Gallagher is the 8th most recognized talk radio personality in the country, is heard by over 2.25 million listeners weekly. He compiled and wrote the following essay entitled, "Obama: It was You."

President Obama:
This is why you didn't go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:
·        It was you who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -"I am one of you."
·        It was you who on ABC News referenced -"My Muslim faith ."
·        It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
·        It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict-"I will stand with the Muslims ."
·        It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that -"I am a Muslim ."
·        It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi King.
·        It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.
·        It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.
·        It was you who purposefully omitted - "endowed by our Creator " - from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.
·        It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ's Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the 'HOLY' Qur'an.
·        It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America.
·        It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
·        It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.
·        It was you who ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.
·        It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
·        It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
·        It was you who said that NASA's "foremost mission" was an outreach to Muslim communities.
·        It was you who as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.
·        It was you who were the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House,and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.
·        It was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.
·        It was you who refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.
·        It is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.
·        It was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.
·        It was you who funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.
·        It was you who ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.
·        It was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help "empower" the British Muslim community.
·        It was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.
·        It is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
·        It is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
·        It was you who was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt's Hosni Mubarak, formerly America's strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
·        It was you who appointed your chief adviser,Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

·        It was you who Said this country is not a Christian nation.
