Cook County Commissioner to Invite U.N. Peacekeeping Forces to Control Violent Crime in Chicago. So Much for Sovereignty.

untitled (209)

“The City of Broad Shoulders”, whose shifty Far Left Democratic Mayor has imperiously proclaimed that President Donald J. Trump is not welcome in his city, has come up with a wackadoodle of a plan to curtail a very serious problem, which they have exported to cities and towns throughout the United States of America.

CBS News’ Chicago Affiliate reports that

CHICAGO (CBS) — Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went even further on Thursday, suggesting the United Nations perhaps send in peacekeepers in the face of what he called a “quiet genocide.”

Boykin was traveling to New York to meet with Oscar Fernandez-Taranco of Argentina, the U.N. Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Support, to seek international help with “horrific levels of shootings” and other violent crime in West Side and South Side communities.

“I’m hoping to appeal to the U.N. to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence, and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peacekeeping efforts, because I think it’s so critical for us to make sure that these neighborhoods are safe,” Boykin said at O’Hare International Airport on Thursday.

Boykin said leaders in Chicago and Cook County have failed to protect many communities from violent crime.

“There is a quiet genocide taking place in too many of our communities. Eighty percent of those who are being killed by gun violence are African American, and often killed at the hands of another African American,” he said. “So we must protect these population groups, and that’s what the United Nations does. They’re a peacekeeping force. They know all about keeping the peace, and so we’re hopeful that they’ll hear our appeal.”

Boykin said Chicago must “utilize every avenue” available to protect its people from gun violence, possibly including U.N. peacekeepers.

“They’ve been able to help in places like Africa and abroad, where they’ve sent troops in and sent forces in to help protect minority and vulnerable populations, and so quite frankly I think the same can be said for here in Chicago,” Boykin said. “I’m talking about physical security. I’m also talking about maybe suggestions for what we can do in Chicago to help protect our minority populations. We’re being, again, decimated by the violence that we see here in Chicago. I mean this is really a genocide, and we have to do something to stop it.”

Recent figures from the Chicago Police Department showed homicides and shootings were down through the end of November, compared to the same time last year, but it’s not enough for Boykin.

“I know that the mayor may tout the fact that the number of people being shot is down, and the number of people being killed is down, but let me tell you, we’ve had over 600 people killed by gun violence already this year alone. That is a huge number,” Boykin said.

Through the end of November, Chicago has had at least 620 homicides. While down significantly from last year, when there were more than 720 homicides through November, that’s still a significant increase from most of the past 15 years.

“In my community of Austin, we’ve had 450 people shot, and 80 people killed this year alone, and so we have to do more to protect these communities, and that’s what we’re going to do. If we can’t get it done here with the leaders of the city, the state, and the county working together to utilize their budgets to help protect these communities, then I have to appeal to a higher authority, and a higher force,” Boykin said.

The meeting at the U.N. has been in the works for more than a month.

“Quite frankly, we can’t wait until the mayor comes up with another 1,000 police to try to make the streets safer. Quite frankly, the people want to be safe right now in their homes and their neighborhoods, and we want to make sure that they’re safe,” Boykin said.

Boykin will return from his meeting in New York on Thursday night.

There are several times, during my musings, that I have described our blessed country as a sovereign nation. What does that mean?

It means that we are an “independent state”, completely independent and self-governing. We bow to no other country on God’s green Earth. We are beholden to no other nation. America stands on its own, with our own set of laws , The Constitution of the United States.

By seeking to invite the UN to “keep the peace” in Chicago, Illinois, a city in the United States of America, like it was downtown Beirut, is not only unconstitutional, it is a proposed violation of our Sovereignty as a Nation.

The continuing and escalating violence in the Windy City reminds me of the exercise in futility that was the 8 year Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

During those long 8 years, one of his pet projects was Gun Control.

Obama claimed that by making it harder for honest American Citizens to purchase firearms, it would curb the crime and violence in our major cities, like his hometown of Chicago, which already had in place some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.

Fat lot of good that’s done, huh?

Have you ever watched a mother, when their toddler bumps their head on a table, attempt to distract their child, by pretending to spank the table, while saying, “Bad Table”?

That, in a nutshell, is what Former President Barack Hussein Obama was attempting to do by writing Executive Orders, in an attempt to limit the Constitutional Right of American Citizens to own guns.

He also attempted to join in an Arms Treaty with the same United Nations that Commissioner Boykin of Chicago is attempting to hand responsibility of his city over to.

Is there something in the water in Chicago?

By creating new restrictions, instead of enforcing gun laws which were already in place, Obama shifted the blame from the Radical Islamic Terrorists and those who operate outside of the law, like the gangs in Chicago, to America and her citizens.

Obama tried to control law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the Muslim Terrorists who perpetrated the San Bernadino Massacre and the thugs who turned Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago into their own personal “Killing Fields”.

Gun Control has not stopped the criminals from getting Guns in the UK.

Why did Obama and his minions think that more regulations were going to accomplish what the UK has not?

Were they that full of themselves that they thought that, since they were the “smartest people in the room”, that failed methods would actually work simply because they were the ones attempting them?

Were they just doing something to be doing something, in order to save face with their Far Left supporters?

Or, was it something more malevolent than just everyday politics?

Here’s a quote from an organization which backed Obama all the way during his Gun Confiscation efforts…

…the right-wing extremists opposing all efforts to curb gun violence are the same forces that rallied behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, hoping to undermine every other democratic right as well as the living standards of workers and ordinary Americans. It is for that reason, as well as the need to protect public safety, that the same coalition of labor and its allies that worked so hard and effectively to re-elect President Barack Obama must now go all-out to back his common sense proposals for gun law reform.

As Obama has charged, the extremists recklessly “gin up fear” that the government is coming to take away hunting rifles and personal weapons owned for legitimate self-defense. Led by the hate-mongering leadership of the National Rifle Association, they use a totally fraudulent and only very recent interpretation of the Second Amendment which they falsely claim as necessary for protecting every other freedom contained in the Bill of Rights.

One of their unhinged spokesmen, Texas talk show host Alex Jones, launched a national petition drive to deport CNN commentator Piers Morgan for questioning the Second Amendment. Jones said the amendment “isn’t there for duck hunting. It’s there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs,” and then went on to threaten insurrection “if you try to take our firearms.”

Actually, the Second Amendment wasn’t enacted with any of these things in mind. The amendment was adopted as a means to enable the new American republic, lacking a standing army or state national guards, to muster militia to put down domestic uprisings, including slave revolts, to repulse any attempted return by the British and to deal with clashes with Native Americans on the expanding frontier.

These issues vanished long ago. The Second Amendment is obsolete and now has been twisted to threaten the basic safety and security of all Americans. There is no basis for claiming this amendment was intended to permit unregulated personal acquisition of firearms, including amassing military weapons and private arsenals for “protection” from the government. No government, especially one that is new and fragile, has ever authorized citizens to arm themselves against it.

The preceding quote actually comes from peoplesworld.org, the website of Communist Party USA.

As I chronicled over the last seven and one-half years, Obama’s and the rest of the Far Left’s Gun Confiscation Movement came right out of  the playbook of Marx and Lenin.

There is one thing that Obama did not take into account, however…

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have. – Ronald Reagan

And, that is why they have failed.

Chicago gangs are committing more murder and mayhem on the blood-drenched streets of Chicago than ever before…and now, they have the fire power to eliminate Chicago’s “Thin Blue Line”, which is all that stands between law-abiding citizens and absolute anarchy.

If Obama and his minions had addressed the REAL problem of gang violence in Chicago, instead of trying to blame average American Gun Owners for the violent acts of criminals, Chicago and other major cities would be safer places to live in and visit today.

And, we wouldn’t have Far Left Liberal Commissioner Boykin attempting to invite the United Nations Peacekeeping Force to invade downtown Chicago, Illinois.

But, that would have made too much sense.

America in Crisis: A Battle of “Princes and Principalities” (A KJ Op Ed)

American Christianity 2Last night, my bride and I attended a once-a month get-together with Christian Friends , with whom we used to meet weekly in a church-sponsored small group, in someone’s home on a weeknight.

Being Southern Baptists, rest assured that there was plenty of food and fellowship.

After the meal, we began to talk about what it going on around us, in this nation, once referred to as “The Shining City Upon the Hill”.

The topics of Racial Division and the murders of 9 American Law Enforcement Offices in 9 days, the rapidly deteriorating American Work Force, The potentially-catastrophic Iran Deal, the arrest of American Christian, Kim Davis, while others in power, such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, laugh in the face of our laws, and the vulgarity, and oblivious self-centered nature of Americans Pop Culture.

The conclusion that that the 11 of us came to, was the fact that America is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.

Yes, my friends. We are still fighting a war against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics.

We see it everyday around us.

It inundates the cable news channels, 24 hours a day. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.

Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.

From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.

What we seem to be heading for is not simply an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless Central Government, whose credo is

From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)

Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so will it fail here.

Just as amorality and licentiousness led to the destruction of the Roman Empire, so, if unchecked, will it lead to America’s.

The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 76% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.

It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.

So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?

As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.

However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.

10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12

Our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday, as we shake the Preacher’s hand and walk out of the sanctuary.

As every Christian knows, the Triune God dwells within each of us, in the form of that “still, small voice”, the Holy Spirit.

Christians have to make a choice in these tough times.

The choice we each have to make is whether to “give to Caesar” that which is not his, our Christian Faith, or to listen to that “still, small voice” and love the homosexual enough to lead them to forgiveness of their sins and salvation through the Grace of Jesus Christ.

This is not a “Political Crisis” which we as Christian Americas are facing right now.

As I wrote earlier, America is in the midst of a battle of “Princes and Principalities”.

By now. you’re probably asking, “So what’s the point of all this, KJ?”

We are given free will by our Creator…will to make choices and decisions on the direction of our lives. Being human, we often don’t make the right decisions and being human, those decisions have the potential to lead us down a dark path.

Whether is in reality or strictly in the close quarters of our own consciousness, the path we choose to follow is up to us. However, our parents, family, and friends can make a difference in our journey and I thank God that through His Grace I was given a Father who made sure that I received loving instruction in The Way in which I should go.

We still live in the greatest country on the face of the earth and we still have a responsibility to one another.

The Light or the Darkness. The choice is up to each and every one of us.

Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:14 (ESV)

And, I stand with the King of Kings.

Y’see, I have read the back of The Book.

The Good Guys win.

So, as you go about your day today, remember, that we have an Advocate, in Jesus Christ the Righteous, and, He is in our corner.

So, take that “little light” of yours, and let it shine.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

Obama Speaks on Ferguson Riots Before Returning to Martha’s Vineyard. Irony is Indignant

ObamaTransparentBranco852014Yesterday afternoon, at 4:00 p.m. Obama Standard Time, (meaning 30 – 45 minutes after any time zone he is speaking in), President Barack Hussein Obama strode up to the microphone, during a respite from his taxpayer-funded vacation with his family in Martha’s Vineyard, to deliver remarks about two ongoing situations which represent the failure of both his foreign and domestic policies…the situation regarding the insurgence of the Radical Muslims of ISIS into Iraq, after Obama declared that the Iraqi War was over, and the ongoing rioting, taking place in Ferguson, MO, over the shooting death of 18 year old strong-arm robbery subject Michael Brown, at the hands of a Ferguson Police Officer.

The following are excerpts from that speach, addressing the on-going, racially-charged chaos in Ferguson, MO…

(courtesy whitehouse.gov:)

The Justice Department has opened an independent federal civil rights investigation into the death of Michael Brown. They are on the ground and, along with the FBI, they are devoting substantial resources to that investigation. The Attorney General himself will be traveling to Ferguson on Wednesday to meet with the FBI agents and DOJ personnel conducting the federal criminal investigation, and he will receive an update from them on their progress. He will also be meeting with other leaders in the community whose support is so critical to bringing about peace and calm in Ferguson.

Ronald Davis, the Director of the DOJ’s Office of Community-Oriented Policing Services — or COPS — is also traveling to Ferguson tomorrow to work with police officials on the ground. We’ve also had experts from the DOJ’s Community Relations Service working in Ferguson since the days after the shooting to foster conversations among local stakeholders and reduce tensions among the community.As Americans, we’ve got to use this moment to seek out our shared humanity that’s been laid bare by this moment — the potential of a young man and the sorrows of parents, the frustrations of a community, the ideals that we hold as one united American family.

…I’ve said this before — in too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement. In too many communities, too many young men of color are left behind and seen only as objects of fear. Through initiatives like My Brother’s Keeper, I’m personally committed to changing both perception and reality. And already we’re making some significant progress as people of goodwill of all races are ready to chip in. But that requires that we build and not tear down. And that requires we listen and not just shout. That’s how we’re going to move forward together, by trying to unite each other and understand each other, and not simply divide ourselves from one another. We’re going to have to hold tight to those values in the days ahead. That’s how we bring about justice, and that’s how we bring about peace.

One Fox News Contributor was not very impressed with Obama’s response to the Ferguson Riots.

Charles Krauthammer on Monday criticized President Obama’s response to the violence that has occurred at the protests in Ferguson, saying on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that “we’re a democratic society, you don’t do that.”

The St. Louis suburb has been in a state of turmoil after the fatal police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, with protests at times turning violent and stores being looted. President Obama’s statement on Monday addressed both sides of the conflict in Ferguson- the looters and police force. 

Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and a Fox News contributor, said Obama should have gone further in condemning the violence. 

“He said, you know, if you riot and use guns and attack the police it serves only to raise attention and stir chaos,” he said. “Well that’s an instrumental way of criticizing it, you’re not going to achieve your goals. What he should be saying is that it’s wrong. We’re a democratic society you don’t do that.”

Krauthammer said he would like to see Obama ringingly condemn the violence, saying it is clear those perpetuating violence in the city are in the wrong. 

“We really have the law on the one hand. We rioters on the other. It isn’t a hard choice between them,” he said. 

Evidently, Dr. Krauthammer, that easy choice, which the overwhelming majority of law-abiding Americans would state without hesitation, is too difficult a choice for our “first Post-Racial President” to make.

Burned twice in the past, by his distinctly un-Presidential defenses of Cambridge Professor, Henry Louis Gates, Jr.and the death of robbery suspect, Trayvon, Obama is trying desperately to not seem so racially-divisive…but, he just can’t help himself.

With his didactic tone, which he no doubt used as a Guest Lecturer at the University of Chicago, Obama attempted yesterday to make it seem to the American People, that he was unbiased regarding the situation, while all the while, seeking to assure his Black American Liberal Voting Base, that he was still “down with the struggle”.

How can Obama be “fightin’ The Man” when HE IS “THE MAN”?

As I am putting the finishing touches on today’s post, the news is reporting that the high school in Memphis from which I graduated is having gang problems. 19 year olds are dressing as students and raping young girls.

Meanwhile, meetings are being held downtown by the City Administration on the subject of the ongoing Gang Violence Problems.

If Obama truly cared about young(and old) Black Americans, he would tackle the forbidden (by Liberals) subject of Black-On-Black Crime, especially the out-of-control Violent Crime Problem.

If Obama was being honest about the Ferguson Situation, he would have addressed the video, which showed Michael Brown and some of his homies stealing cigars from a local convenience store, and bullying the owner, just so they could put marijuana in them, and smoke their “blunts”.

Perhaps, when AG Holder is in Ferguson today, he will speak to the Black guy on the eyewitness video, presently on Youtube, whose story corroborates that of the police officer Michael charged at, like a 6’$”, 250 lb., stoned bull.

He probably won’t. It would ruin the narrative.

Remember, this is the same Attorney General of the United States who refused to prosecute the two Black Panthers who were intimidating White people at the Cleveland Voting Precinct, during the 2008 Presidential Elections.

Meanwhile, as Obama was attempting to be “authentic”, I’m sure that Mooch was having her fourth lobster at her late lunch/early dinner at some posh restaurant in Martha’s Vineyard.

Were these attempts by a Former Community Organizer to appear unbiased, hypocritical? You betcha. In fact, as I tweeted yesterday, the President’s Speech was an example of…

Irony: A Black President talking about Black men being left behind,  as he gets ready to return to Martha’s Vineyard.  #tcot #KJ #Ferguson
