Weekly Update from Headquarters
27 May 2016
Greetings from Tyler,
narrowly escaped having the president's “trans-gender” proclamation passed into
law by the Congress this week.
It happened when a “gay” Democrat from New York attached “trans-gender
discrimination” language to a routine spending bill to fund the Army Corps of
Engineers. Many are
expressing surprise that
43 members of the nominally conservative party signed on to the measure which
forbade the federal government from granting contracts or doing business
with any concern that wouldn't enact the president's “gay, lesbian,
trans-gender, queer” policies.
whole thing was set to go until
a congressman from Georgia stood up at a policy meeting and read a Bible passage
aloud, condemning homosexuality as an abomination to God.
some Republicans who supported the bill cursing aloud as they fled the room,
calling the reading “expletive ridiculous.”
But it worked! The
representatives who had supported the measure in a preliminary vote had a change
of heart (maybe
because Capitol phone lines were jammed with outraged callers) and
voted to kill the measure in the official House vote.
That's how close America came to having this idiocy imposed as the
official law of the land this week.
Carried to its natural conclusion,
this kind of legislation would effectively put most companies and institutions
that refused to comply with this perverted nonsense out of business.
A great many
big corporate names have already adopted “pro-gay,” trans-gender, global-warming
policies and advertise the fact as if it's good for business.
Americans have apparently viewed the phenomenon as a fact of life that
they could do nothing about, and either been quietly accepting or silent.
Whether anybody has noticed or not, the country has not exactly flourished as
the “gay” revolution has taken hold in the
Supreme Court, in the
U. S. military services, in
all over the
entertainment industry and throughout our society.
Bankruptcies are all up and down nearly every road you travel, even in
Texas where the economy is statistically so much stronger than anywhere else.

Russia invaded Ukraine, threatens
more of eastern Europe,
our national airspace and
buzzes our warships with fighter jets on the high seas.
China has built islands for military installations in the middle of the South
China sea, and warns
that its military is “ready for war” if provoked.
Iran extends a filthy middle digit in America's general direction every
couple of days
in spite of Obama's sweetheart deal, guaranteeing it a clear path to nuclear
national debt threatens our very existence, yet the spending continues to
increase because it's always “the right thing ta doo.”
Protesters play hopscotch atop police cruisers, throw rocks and bottles at law
enforcement while the cops stand back and “hold the line.”
People who dare profess belief in God and country are besmirched as retarded
throwbacks to a time that never was.
History is being rewritten on a daily basis as
the president continues his “apology tour,” and insists that he's not
apologizing. He gave a rambling
speech at the Hiroshima museum where the U. S. is characterized as an unprovoked
called for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
At this point, that's about like calling for the abolition of guns.
Only criminals would have them.
aren't criminals the next protected class anyway?
They're being let out of prison by the thousands, “non-violent drug dealers”
many of whom also had gun crimes on their record.
Terrorists have been released out of Guantanamo Bay back to the Middle East by
the dozens over the past couple of years.
Syrian refugees are being secreted into the United States from Europe, even
every law enforcement agency has said they are an unpredictable danger.
It has just been reported that
some $18 million has been spent recently by ICE to fly illegal minors who
crossed our southern border to their preferred destinations, to join up with
other illegal family members. From
the president on down through agencies charged with our national protection,
the United States is encouraging a deluge of lawlessness and using “law
enforcement” to flood in people who have no respect for life or law.
You don't have to read too far beyond the headlines to realize that our
way of life, our traditions and history are under a full scale attack.
It is as if the curses of sin from the Old Testament are in full force.
They're everywhere you look.

trick is to deny all connections between Islam and terrorism while insisting
that westerners accept Muslim “refugees” as “the poor.”
This way everybody can get serious about confronting the true threat to

The latest is that

These are tumultuous times, domestically and internationally and
many of the Bible's
warnings about what would transpire in the end times are swirling all around us.
Evil is good in the eyes of our leadership, and good as described by the
Word of God is a whole series of hate crimes.
Discrimination, you might say.
May we have the fortitude to remain faithful and loyal to the TRUTH as
evil invades every square inch of our formerly blessed land.
P.S. We hope you all have the new
mailed out last week. This week saw
the monthly letter mailed, and the new
WATCH magazine is nearly complete.
Response has been excellent, and everyone in Tyler is working to get all
requested material out in a timely fashion.
Thanks to all.
