192 Countries exist in the world. We give Aid to 150

There are 192 countries in the world. We give out Aid to 150 of them. This doesn’t include that we have 120 military installations world-wide with hundreds of thousands of troops in an attempt to keep the world at relative peace. This is just what finished the Roman Empire. Can we  not  learn from History? Are we doomed to repeat it?

Always on Watch does it again.  A great blog– slide on over. Here is a post you cannot miss:

As AOW says : As you compute your taxes this year, remember how much of your hard-earned money is being given to foreign countries. Click to enlarge

Christian Stations under pressure to do a ‘Glenn Beck Fast” for Lent

I found this piece over at Christian Post troublesome. Clearly, Glenn Beck attacked and gave a real drubbing to Churches who are heavily involved in so-called “Social Justice” issues. At the time of his attack on those churches, he gave a number of  well thought out, and documented programs describing the evolution of how many of these Churches were becoming  radicalized without really understanding the basis or etiology of the political agenda. I am no big fan of Beck, mainy because I cannot take a steady diet of him. That said, I have learned much and have enjoyed his clips on the Progressive movement. It is hard to argue with primary sources that cannot be denied. Maybe I found this story disturbing  because I too felt a need to leave a Church for these same reasons. I am including a vid of Van Jones describing Social Justice. For more background that got Glenn into difficulty, our earlier post: Glenn Beck says Collective Salvation is demonic – Obama believes in it.

A good read over at the Eastern Right on Liberation Theology with links to the full Beck Program and an article by Pope Benedict regarding Collective Salvation. Pick up the story here

UPDATE: Caught this at  The Blaze :

The group credits Res Publica and True Majority for helping establish itself as a “religious version of MoveOn.org.” Res Publica is a progressive organization largely funded by George Soros’ Open Society Institute and boast board members such as John Podesta of the Center for American Progress and Eli Pariser, executive director of MoveOn.   In 2008, Soros’ Open Society Institute awarded two $400,000 grants to Faithful America.

Here tis from:Christian Post:

Faithful America describes itself as an online community of citizens motivated by faith to take action on social problems such as ending poverty, promoting economic security, promoting peace and restoring America’s commitment to human rights and diplomacy, preventing harmful effects of climate change, countering hate speech and misinformation in the media about people of faith, and working to build communities where immigrants and people of faiths are welcomed. (Their website says it all:http://www.faithfulamerica.org/) Got it! 

“The pressure on Beck and his sponsors is building. And the bottom line is no responsible person or company should support programming that promotes menacing conspiracy theories and tells listeners to flee from churches that talk about social justice,” said Faithful America in the statement. “This should go double for a company claiming to represent Christian values.”

“We invite WMCA and WNYM to use this Lenten period to reflect on their Christian values and make a commitment not to pick up Glenn Beck, during the next 40 days or any time after.”

Faithful America, an online community that claims to be made up of over 100,000 people of faith, is calling on two Salem Communications-owned radio stations in New York – WMCA and WNYM – to “give up Glenn Beck for Lent.”

The two Christian radio stations are the only ones left in the New York City area that have not made a commitment to remove Beck from their airwaves, according to Faithful America. From Philadelphia to Madison, radio stations have already dropped Beck’s program from their line-up due to falling ratings and poor content.

“Beck’s caustic remarks, fear-mongering and bigotry have led to a national backlash,” Faithful America asserts in a statement. More at Christian Post

From the Right Scoop:  Van Jones spoke at Guilford College in North Carolina a couple of days ago and defined Social Justice for the audience. He said that if you could write your life on a card and put it in a hat filled with cards from everyone else in your country, and that you could then be totally assured that any card you pulled out would be a good life for you to live, then you know you live in a social justice country.

As the makers of the video points out, that’s communism:

Eric Holder and DOJ dumbs down job exams again

Eric Holder on the march again. We just got done posting how he and the DOJ was going after the New York Fire Dept. He will get us killed with this nonsense. Under what authority does he have? Where are the protests?

Now, another story..

DAYTON — “The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits. It’s a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam.    

Dayton is in desperate need of officers to replace dozens of retirees.  The hiring process was postponed for months because the D.O.J. DOTSBOLE rejected the original scores provided by the Dayton Civil Service Board, which administers the test. 

Under the previous requirements, candidates had to get a 66% on part one of the exam and a 72% on part two. The D.O.J. DOTSBOLE approved new scoring policy only requires potential police officers to get a 58% and a 63%.  That’s the equivalent of an ‘F’ and a ‘D’.” H/T carpe Diem

An earlier story last week:

American Spectator:

See what the Obama DoJ is doing to the FDNY, even AFTER Ricci v. DeStefano should have put this sort of thing off-limits. Heavily edited, this still gives the flavor of it:

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s obsession with racial grievance-mongering could get Americans burnt to a crisp in their own homes. That’s because his Justice Department is trying to force the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) to hire flunkies who got 70 percent wrong on a basic, fire-related multiple-choice, open-book test. The exam was used to screen applicants to the fire academy. More than 90 percent of black and Hispanic test-takers passed, which isn’t enough for liberals addicted to affirmative action…. On Feb. 28, Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, submitted a proposed order for damages for rejected applicants who scored 25 or higher on the 85-question exams. New York’s taxpayers would be forced to pay compensation to the flunkies to make up for years of seniority supposedly lost when the city chose not to hire them. Minority rejects also would receive seniority over firemen who had been working all the while.

The D.O.J. has forced other police departments across the country to lower testing standards, citing once again that not enough black candidates
