Prayer Request

I have a prayer request.  There’s a lady I’ve known forever.  She’s very
sick.  On top of that, she’s being abused by those to whom she has given
everything…..  Lies about her abound, and seem to come from all sides.
Just breaks my heart.  Seems there’s nothing I can do alone.  But maybe,
if we join in and lift her up together we can heal her.  She’s well over
230 years old, but way too young to die. Her name is* America * … and I
love her.

New, convincing evidence indicates global warming is caused by cosmic rays and the sun — not humans

Lawrence Solomon: Science getting settled

New, convincing evidence indicates global warming is caused by cosmic rays and the sun — not humans

The science is now all-but-settled on global warming, convincing new evidence demonstrates, but Al Gore, the IPCC and other global warming doomsayers won’t be celebrating. The new findings point to cosmic rays and the sun — not human activities — as the dominant controller of climate on Earth.

The research, published with little fanfare this week in the prestigious journal Nature, comes from über-prestigious CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the world’s largest centres for scientific research involving 60 countries and 8,000 scientists at more than 600 universities and national laboratories. CERN is the organization that invented the World Wide Web, that built the multi-billion dollar Large Hadron Collider, and that has now built a pristinely clean stainless steel chamber that precisely recreated the Earth’s atmosphere.

In this chamber, 63 CERN scientists from 17 European and American institutes have done what global warming doomsayers said could never be done — demonstrate that cosmic rays promote the formation of molecules that in Earth’s atmosphere can grow and seed clouds, the cloudier and thus cooler it will be. Because the sun’s magnetic field controls how many cosmic rays reach Earth’s atmosphere (the stronger the sun’s magnetic field, the more it shields Earth from incoming cosmic rays from space), the sun determines the temperature on Earth.

The hypothesis that cosmic rays and the sun hold the key to the global warming debate has been Enemy No. 1 to the global warming establishment ever since it was first proposed by two scientists from the Danish Space Research Institute, at a 1996 scientific conference in the U.K. Within one day, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Bert Bolin, denounced the theory, saying, “I find the move from this pair scientifically extremely naive and irresponsible.” He then set about discrediting the theory, any journalist that gave the theory cre dence, and most of all the Danes presenting the theory — they soon found themselves vilified, marginalized and starved of funding, despite their impeccable scientific credentials.

The mobilization to rally the press against the Danes worked brilliantly, with one notable exception. Nigel Calder, a former editor of The New Scientist who attended that 1996 conference, would not be cowed. Himself a physicist, Mr. Calder became convinced of the merits of the argument and a year later, following a lecture he gave at a CERN conference, so too did Jasper Kirkby, a CERN scientist in attendance. Mr. Kirkby then convinced the CERN bureaucracy of the theory’s importance and developed a plan to create a cloud chamber — he called it CLOUD, for “Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets.”

But Mr. Kirkby made the same tactical error that the Danes had — not realizing how politicized the global warming issue was, he candidly shared his views with the scientific community.

“The theory will probably be able to account for somewhere between a half and the whole of the increase in the Earth’s temperature that we have seen in the last century,” Mr. Kirkby told the scientific press in 1998, explaining that global warming may be part of a natural cycle in the Earth’s temperature.

The global warming establishment sprang into action, pressured the Western governments that control CERN, and almost immediately succeeded in suspending CLOUD. It took Mr. Kirkby almost a decade of negotiation with his superiors, and who knows how many compromises and unspoken commitments, to convince the CERN bureaucracy to allow the project to proceed. And years more to create the cloud chamber and convincingly validate the Danes’ groundbreaking theory.

Yet this spectacular success will be largely unrecognized by the general public for years — this column will be the first that most readers have heard of it — because CERN remains too afraid of offending its government masters to admit its success. Weeks ago, CERN formerly decided to muzzle Mr. Kirby and other members of his team to avoid “the highly political arena of the climate change debate,” telling them “to present the results clearly but not interpret them” and to downplay the results by “mak[ing] clear that cosmic radiation is only one of many parameters.” The CERN study and press release is written in bureaucratese and the version of Mr. Kirkby’s study that appears in the print edition of Nature censored the most eye-popping graph — only those who know where to look in an online supplement will see the striking potency of cosmic rays in creating the conditions for seeding clouds.

CERN, and the Danes, have in all likelihood found the path to the Holy Grail of climate science. But the religion of climate science won’t yet permit a celebration of the find.

We have worked hard, raised our children, worshipped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.


We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam . We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America , we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America , and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America .

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.


It was the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress.

You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.” You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Cool-Aid.’ Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.


Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey Haired Brigade is here, and in 2012 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in 2012 we’re going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to “We the People” and “We the People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the “Grey-Haired Brigade.”

I am another Gray Haired Geezer signing on. Come on guys. Let’s get this circulating around.

An Open Letter to the U.S. Supreme Court

By, Marion Valentine

Honorable Justices;

By your ruling that  prayers may no longer be allowed in schools or public places, and the banning of displaying symbols of the Christian faith,citing “Separation of Church and State”, which does not appear anywhere in the Constitution. Because prayers and the display of Christian symbols “offended” (nowhere in our Constitution does it give anyone the right to NOT be offended}a minute percentage of the American Population you trampled on the rights of the majority of Americans in the “Free Worship of their faith”. That the state cannot Prevent free worship  IS in the constitution.

By ruling that abortion is a “freedom of choice” to appease a minority of the population, you violated the rights of the majority who think abortion is amoral and downright murder of an innocent life. The freedom of choice should be choosing to forgo the pleasure of conception. Your decision simply removes the responsibility of that choice.

By ruling that vulgar obscene language and images are expressions of art or freedom of speech, again demanded by a minute minority. the rights of the majority who think such things are sinful and amoral are ignored.

We the majority are tired of being ignored, and tired of the rewriting of our constitution by Judges.

I am suggesting  peaceful disobedience by Americans. I suggest that every American display a flag and a cross in their front yard, and wear a flag and a cross pin on their clothing.  When challenged simply say the Constitution does not allow anyone to prevent me from free worship or displaying the symbol of  my liberty.

Supreme Court Justices come and go, and this era of complex web of legal jargon to confuse and deceive the population will pass, and a new court will emerge where the constitution is revered not seen as something to be changed, and common sense will prevail.

Complex things are woven for the sole purpose of deception, but the goal of intelligence is to render complex things simple.

If you agree with this pass it around, sign your name and send it to the Supreme Court, and display a flag and a cross in your front yard.

Like the Baptist preacher said when he ate, pushed back from the table and ate some more till he could no longer reach his plate…

If you think this is a good idea, I would greatly appreciate it if you would do what you can to help promote it.

I am so tired of the unconstitutional trampling of my Liberty and Freedom of Religion that I am displaying an American Flag and A cross in my front yard.

The message: I stand in front of the Flag and Cross. To take down the symbol of my Liberty and my Religion you will have to come over me.

I think a Cross and A Flag in millions of yards across America will send a powerful message.




By Marion Valentine

When danger threatens the tortoise pulls all appendages into it’s shell andrides it out.

It’s time for America to stop thinking Global Economy and Global markets and start thinking American Economy and American Markets. America can not help or solve any problems in the world when Her own house is in such dissaray.

Immediate steps that could be taken now to start the cleansing. America’s friends will understand and Her enemies won’t care, that we immediately stop all monetary foreign aid to all countries, and supply only emergency food and medical supplies in the face of a natural disaster.

Immediately stop funding the United Nations. Disband and de-fund the Department of Energy, The EPA, the  Department Of Education. Examine the purpose for creation and the performance of all agencies and departments and disband or cut funding for all that have not had a positive effect.

Close all overseas military bases that are not vital to our national defense.

Use all resources of the Department of Immigration to SECURE the border  FIRST. Once the Borders are secure local Law enforcement can handle the Illegal aliens who are already here.

Set up a data base with companies who need temporary workers in conjunction with Mexican officials who will help to vette and streamline the process for supplying those workers.

Freeze spending in all departments at 2008 levels until redundant and worthless departments can be eliminated.

With an entire administration and Congress behaving like a turtle on a fence post, with no idea how it got in this situation, and even less of an idea about a solution, it will take men and women of strong moral character to stand up and put AMERICA FIRST

Another thing, Congress may no longer vote to give themselves a pay raise or other perks. A pay raise for Congress must be approved by the people  at the ballot box.

I say all of this knowing that Government is the problem not the solution. We The People are the solution, and only We can turn this Country around and leave a once again proud America for our children and grandchildren.

So Turtle up America. clean our own house and again America will be the Shining City On the Hill.

God has not forsaken America, America has forsaken God, and when we realize that and take a stand  God will answer our prayers to Bless America AGAIN.

Religious leaders are afraid to preach the truth, and only give “feel good” messages. People are afraid to stand and Pray where when and how they want to, and are afraid to display symbols of their faith.

NBC selective editing of the Interview with Widow of Navy Seal

This morning on the Today Show, Matt Lauer interviewed one of the  wives of one of the Navy Seals killed this weekend. He asked her what she would say to her children about their dad and how she would want them to remember him…She said, and I quote, ” His love for Christ” and then continued with a few other things…through out the day and on MSN homepage…when the story is replayed they have edited the “Love of Christ” part out…

Why? Because using the word Christ might offend someone…well I am a Christian and I am offended! Offended that they would edit it out. Offended that we as Christians are asked to tread lightly so as not to offend someone of another religion…well I have read the book and guess what…We Win!

I think anyone who missed the original broadcast this morning should know what NBC has done. This man loved his country and loved his God and gave his life for both, just as Christ gave His life for him…

Please feel free to copy this and forward it to everyone on your email list..There are emails that go around saying ” If you believe in God” then forward this…well I am starting one..right here, right now…I am not ashamed of God but I am becoming more ashamed of my country…It is time to take a stand.
